New Monterey Corner Finally Gets Go Ahead To Build

Groundbreaking on construction of a mixed-use building at Reeside and Lighthouse avenues in Monterey, once the location of a gas station, has finally gotten under way, after years of discussion with city committees and nearby residents, and undergoing several changes to the project’s original design.

“We had been trying to get it through the city for about 2½ years,” said Sean Houlihan, one of three Carmel men building the project.

About time they get around to building, Lighthouse Avenue is becoming more and more ghetto every day. Look around at the drug paraphernalia shops, tattoo studios, kung fu pits, empty storefronts and such.

Missing Boater Found Dead

The body discovered Thanksgiving Day on a Monterey beach was identified Monday as Chris Haugen, a Marina man who had been missing for 12 days after a sailing excursion in Monterey Harbor.

Haugen disappeared Nov. 11 after he took out the Lorraine, a sailboat that belonged to his employer. He set off about 3 p.m. But the boat was found running in circles, with its outboard motor running and nobody on board about two hours later.

More Torture Protests At Presidio Gate

Torture

“He didn’t understand what we are doing,” said protester and Monterey resident Maggy Wilson Boast. “We do support our troops, but we don’t support the use of torture.”

Boast and her sister Janet Louise Wilson, organizer of this weekend’s protest outside the entrance at Lighthouse Avenue and Pvt. Bolio Road, have been fighting the impression that they are anti-American and anti-military since the beginning of the war with Iraq, nearly five years ago, the protesters said.

They should visit Russia or North Korea to protest real torture. Check the website of the “Peace Coalition”, with supportive links to what else but Communist websites.Torture protesters

Intruder Gets Bit By Police Dog Then Tasered

Salinas police used a dog and a Taser this morning to subdue a suspect accused of threatening his former girlfriend.

The suspect refused repeated police commands to surrender and the police K-9 was deployed, resulting in a bite wound to the suspect. The suspect continued to refuse additional commands, so a Taser was used.

He was lodged at Monterey County Jail on various charges, including domestic violence and false imprisonment. Police said he also had various outstanding felony warrants.

And the suspect lived. Amazing?

Dangerous Trees To Be Chopped Down

Arborist quit

City Manager Jim Colangelo said West Coast Arborists will remove the trees in December at a cost of $65,000. The firm will focus on trees that need to be cut down using cranes, while city employees will focus on less expensive tree-cutting, he said.

Residents who were originally critical of the plan to cut down 200 trees said on Wednesday that they were happy with the process and that the council members went to look at the trees.

Jean Anton, chairwoman of the city’s beautification and natural resources committee, praised the council members for going to the park. In her four years on the committee, she’s never seen that happen.
