It's A Bicycle Race – Leave Your Kids And Dogs At Home

So says the barricades.

Racers will compete for a purse totaling $4,000 during nine separate hour-long races, starting at 7:30 a.m. Riders will race on a circular 0.7-mile course starting on Lighthouse Avenue, rounding the corner down Congress Avenue to Central Avenue and up Fountain Avenue back to Lighthouse.

The race is sanctioned by USA Cycling and sponsored by the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce and AT&T, in cooperation with the city of Pacific Grove.

cycle race

Really, is this an advisement or advertisement? These barricades have been scattered all over downtown since Friday, and closing the street on a Sunday is hardly impacting. You could hold this event without closing the streets.

Watch Where Your Recycle Tax Money Goes

Humunya Foundation

How charming. Out of town “Community Activist” groups swoop in and provide an on-the-surface admirable service of removing those toxic electronics that just threaten to destroy the environment. Makes your legs tingle with substainable joy, don’t it?

I call BS. How do we know they are not offloading the waste to countries like Communist China that salvage anything valuable and leave the rest to rot in piles (click the headline credit for the 60 Minutes story)?

Buy a TV lately (come on admit it)? There was a “disposal fee” tacked on. This hidden tax goes to pay for safe disposal of older electronics and groups like the Humunya Foundation get reimbursed for what they collect. Kind of like giving your aluminum cans to the street people to cash in.

Please keep it local if you can. I recommend taking your e-waste to the Marina dump – err Environmental Park where the taxes are used for local jobs – not some out of town activist group..

Stupid Art Galleries – Paint A New Sign, Will Ya

While Pacific Grove lays claim to many family-friendly events – the Butterfly Parade, Good Old Days and Feast of Lanterns – when the sun goes down and the grown-ups want to make merry, P.G. is reliably an early-to-bedder.

But on special Friday nights, the tide turns in the town’s favor during the aptly named Wine, Art & Music Walk.

Oh, look! There are FOUR more galleries just up the street, right?
Four what?

Lessee, there’s Trott’s for one
Trotters Gallery

The gallery with “Ol’ One Eye” for two, but it’s not even open..
One eyed Willie

The one with the scarves and balloons for Three
Welcome to vacant art
And that’s it. There is one former gallery or two. I lose count of ex galleries. Stupid artists, go back to Carmel..

Cops Catch New Monterey Robbers

Victims beaten & robbed late night on David Ave.

Booked into Monterey County Jail on robbery, attempted robbery and assault charges were Gregory Holland, 18, Seaside, Kaylem McDonough, 19, Seaside, and Michael Ordonez, 19, Marina. They were held on $80,000 bail apiece.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested and lodged in county Juvenile Hall.

We Knew This Was Coming, Right?

After hanging a banner counting down the days until the May 25th doomsday, they come back from ruin to have an “Emergency Reopening Sale”. Does still having an inventory of unsold overpriced furniture constitute an emergency? Just close the place already.
Lane Furniture OOB

I’d say something about buying from a closing store, the hazards of not being able to contact anyone when a table leg falls off your $1,800 coffee table, but these places never really close.

The exact same thing the other constantly “going out of business” furniture store did in February 2008.

Newest Sensation! The Going Out Of Business Sale

Rug store closing

Think it’s the truth? Or are they another poser like the Timepiece and Lane Furniture?

Oriental carpet stores are the all time champion of fake “going out of business” sales.

Phony going-out-of-business sales long have plagued Oriental rug retailing here and across the country, dealers say. The industry is susceptible because Oriental rugs can cost thousands of dollars, and many consumers lack the expertise to judge whether a rug’s quality matches its price. That frequently makes the lure of huge markdowns effective, especially when the discount is off a grossly inflated original price.

City Suing Aliottis

Are all Aliottis this dishonest?

The city of Monterey is suing a local couple for allegedly trying to make a big profit on their subsidized affordable housing.

According to the lawsuit, Gaspare and Rose Ann Aliotti lied to the city and rented out the Yerba Buena Court condominium they purchased in 1985 so they could wait out deed restrictions and sell it at market rates.

Gaspare Aliotti referred questions to his wife. Rose Ann Aliotti referred inquiries to her attorney, whom she declined to identify, saying she’d deliver a message. No one responded.
