Council Turns Mvsevm Over To Packards

A letter of intent to transfer operation of the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History to a nonprofit foundation was approved 5-2 Wednesday by the City Council.

The letter was endorsed unanimously April 21 by the Pacific Grove Museum Advisory Board and calls for transferring operation of the museum to the nonprofit Museum Foundation of Pacific Grove Inc.

The foundation has proposed a public-private partnership with the city in which the museum building, collection and grounds would be leased to the foundation for a 15-year period starting July 1.

The letter came with a list of add-on proposals, which dissenting council members Carmelita Garcia and Alan Cohan said were too one-sided.

The Truth Is Way Out There

Spaceship reported in Moss Landing

According to the sheriff’s log, a deputy took a report Monday from an Elkhorn resident who was upset that someone entered his unlocked spaceship and ransacked the vehicle.

Fortunately, the log noted dryly, “Nothing was missing, and there was no damage to the laser gun.”

But the truth about the unusual crime was neither “out there” nor inside the troubled mind of a deluded spaceship owner.

Cmdr. Mike Richards said he discovered the prank after a reporter requested more information about the spaceship burglary.

Tree Ordinance Sent Back To Morons

Admin was recently sent a postcard about a missing tree or two. But it’s missing the target like so many other things the city aims at. The letter is addressed to “Homeowner” at the intended address. Nice gesture, but the homeowner does not live there.

Stumped

The ordinance was last reviewed 4½ years ago, said committee Vice Chairman Thom Akeman, and the current version was adopted by the City Council in September 2007.

Resident Georgia Booth, who was issued a tree removal permit and crossed swords with Akeman during his compliance inspection of her property last fall, said she has found two versions of the ordinance online, with strikeouts and additions. Others who attended the committee meeting said they didn’t have computers in their homes and needed printed copies.

Judge Rules Against Forest Hill Manor

Forest Hill Manor matches

Remember when 6 people sued to move into the same cottage? The city won. Must be crowded in that cottage..

The trial court ruled in support of the city on all counts, stating there was “no evidence” the city “fabricated or otherwise arbitrarily imposed conditions on Forest Hill Manor. The use permit provided for the completion of the project as a whole and a requirement that all conditions be satisfied before the issuance of an occupancy permit.”

Sea Lions Take Over Beaches

Attracting more sharks, no doubt.

As long as the beaches get fenced off to protect them, more and more will keep coming here to give birth. Not unlike dare I say, illegal immigrants.

“As population has grown, they’ve spread out and taken and started using more and more locations around the Monterey Bay Peninsula,” said Jim Watanabe, with Hopkins Marine Station.

Pupping season not only brings more than 300 harbor seals to a 3-mile stretch of shoreline. It brings eager onlookers too.

“I’ve been standing here maybe 20-30 minutes. They’re really fascinating to watch. They’re really cute and their little sounds sound like ‘mom,'” said Sarah Knox, a visitor from Mass.

The letter to interim city manager Charlene Wiseman from Jason Burnett, president of the Museum Foundation of Pacific Grove Inc., proposes a public-private partnership between the city and the foundation in which the museum building, collection and grounds would be leased to the foundation for a 15-year period beginning July 1.

Burnett said the foundation believes that the museum “should continue to be a major cultural, educational and productive asset for the citizens of our area and our business community”

Revenue – Burglar Alarm Fees

Palo Alto is collecting $250 for late filed burglar alarm permits. For a city that not only fails to collect from businesses that park all day long in 2 hour spots, does P.G. even collect alarm fees?

Art Sklaroff is one of more than a dozen residents who showed up for an administrative hearing earlier this month to contest the fine, which he said came without warning. Like the others, he explained that he had been renewing his mandatory $35 permit each year, but forgot this year because he didn’t receive the city’s usual courtesy reminder.

Like each of the others, he was told that it was no excuse. The rules are the rules.
