New Monterey Police Blotter – February 2009

Car Event Stalls Like A V12 In A Sand Trap – Needs Environmental Impact Report

Another red Ferrari

When will Moammar turn to improving commerce for locals? Everything the guy does is to bring more transients to town. It’s time to boot the guy out. First cut I’d make.

Chamber of commerce president Moe Ammar said the main reason the show — which attracts hundreds of participants and thousands of spectators — is in jeopardy is that an environmental impact report might be needed before it can be permitted to move to P.G.

“With all the requirements with getting a permit,” Ammar said, “it’s highly unlikely the event will happen this year.”

In 2008, the city council said it didn’t want the Concorso to move to town because of concerns about golf-course damage from cars, traffic and other issues. But with the city’s economy hurting because of the global downturn, Ammar believes the council would change its mind.

Cannery Row Street To Be Torn Up Again

Row and Hoffman

Work begins Monday, between Hoffman & Reeside. Can Cal-Am and the City Of Monterey pull this off? And, is the repaving project the result of the water main breaking all the time?

To reduce costs and minimize disruption to local businesses, the main replacement project will be conducted in coordination with the City of Monterey, which has a repaving project planned for the same area. . . In addition, construction will be halted during the weeks of April 5 and April 12 to accommodate the increase in visitor traffic associated with the spring break holiday.

Cannery Row Street To Be Torn Up Again

Commercial Filming Shuts Down Lighthouse Avenue

Said to be an AT$T Commercial, two days of shutdown from Congress Ave to 19th St. Some stores were compensated, others were not.

Ammar said he personally notified every business in the area about the commercial and that streets would be closed.

One store owner, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he lost an estimated $700 in the two days the commercial was being shot because of the street closures. The owner said he was never notified the streets were going to be closed.

Besides closing the main street and tying up traffic, the commercial filmed Monday and Tuesday for AT&T cellular phone service blocked off dozens of parking spaces. But it also brought dozens of technicians and actors to town as the production company, Smuggler, shot scenes at the Red House Cafe, Miss Trawick’s Garden Shop and other P.G. locations.

“It was the best thing that happened to P.G. this year,” said Moe Ammar, president of the chamber of commerce. “It was very exciting for P.G. to see Hollywood here.”

Oh Those Wharf Chowderheads

It would be more fun to to have a person in a Domenico’s uniform deliver the pagers, but that would take a bit of bravery.

Last fall, according to court documents, Shake began noticing the disappearance of pagers he gives to customers to allow them to wander the wharf while waiting for a table.

Shake, who suspected a competitor was wooing his customers and dumping the devices, hired diver Don Maulhardt to search under the wharf. On two dives, Maulhardt recovered 10 pagers from the harbor’s bottom, allegedly beneath Domenico’s.

Maulhardt in the water beneath Domenico’s when they set up a sting with an undercover officer Nov. 19. That officer posed as a patron with one of the Grotto’s pagers on the wharf. Mercurio allegedly persuaded the officer to dine at his restaurant and took the pager, promising to return it to the Grotto.

Pacific Grove Employee Of The Year

Not every day that the parking enforcement person is honored.

Tony Marino, community services officer for the Pacific Grove Police Department, has been named City Employee of the Year by the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce.

Announcement of the award was made by Moe Ammar, chamber president, who said Marino was selected by the chamber board for his contributions to improving the quality of life in Pacific Grove beyond the call of duty.

Oh, it’s awarded by the Chamber O Commerce. Is that why businesses owners can leave their cars parked in 2-hour spaces all day and not get ticketed? Is it a perk of being a chamber member?

Another Reason To Fear The Dentist

Groping. Was this one of those ‘sedation dentistry’ doctors that knock you out for a cleaning?

Defense attorney Michael Rothschild told the six-man, six-woman Yolo County jury that Mark Anderson was treating his female clients for temporomandibular disorder, or TMD. The attorney says the condition affects the muscles of the upper body.

Anderson faces 19 felony charges for skin-to-skin contact and one misdemeanor for touching a patient’s breasts over her clot
