Real Estate Signs Targeted By Vandals

Vandals have made the past couple of weeks at Patrick and Vicki Dwyer’s Real Estate Sign Service an extraordinarily busy time.

Some 50 signs have been destroyed throughout the county during the past three weeks, the Dwyers report.

It appears that vandals used a bat to whack the signs, breaking them apart. Other signs that may be too difficult to destroy were ripped out of the ground.

I have little sympathy for the land bandits. Sometimes you can’t walk on the sidewalk without navigating the barricades of tacky open house signs.

Tempers Are Hot As The Bruschetta At Favaloro’s

A local writes in Trip Advisor about their experience with the restaurant’s owners. No surprise here.

I’ve eaten at Favaloro’s a few times, and the food is decent. When my baby was born, my dad bought us a couple of gift certificates for there to help us out. Imagine my surprise, when I tried to use one (after dinner, mind you) and the owner came running out of the kitchen shouting that the certificates were fake because he always cut them differently. It was a surreal scene. they finally honored them, saying “well just this time” (as if I’d be back) I heard the owner say to his wife as I was leaving that “he might have made a mistake”… still, no apology, and I would never recommend the place to anyone. Pasta Mia across the street has better food and nicer people.

P.G. Police Shoot Pit Bull

One pit bull was killed and another captured after several calls from a Pacific Grove retirement community that the dogs were acting aggressively toward people.

The dogs were reportedly roaming the area around the Pacific Grove Gold Course, near a retirement mobile home park and the Meals On Wheels headquarters.

The dog was then shot once with a police shotgun, police said in a news release. They said the dog was transported to an area animal hospital but “regrettably passed away.”

Interesting, considering that PG is more accessible to dogs than handicapped people.

Man Arrested In Cell Phone Hostage Extortion

A Seaside man was arrested in Pacific Grove in a sting operation Tuesday evening as he allegedly tried to sell a stolen cellular telephone to an undercover police officer.

Police said the phone had been stolen from Alejandro Ortiz on Saturday night while he was attending the Feast of Lanterns pageant at Lovers Point in Pacific Grove.

When I read the headline, “Man arrested in cell phone sting operation” I thought there was a big ring of stolen or hacked phone criminals. Too high tech for P.G., just another stupid bad guy named Kirby Bruno Jr. trying to extort money from an owner of a lost phone.
