New Monterey Police Blotter – July 2009

Here's To You City Leaders

Stability is crumbling, Arnie is taking our tax dollars, you gave away the Mvsevm, town’s going broke, citizens are turning out in droves over where to park cars so they can walk dogs, and where are they? On vacation.

The city hasn’t had a permanent city manager since December, and the recruitment has taken months longer than expected. Interim City Manager Charlene Wiseman agreed to extend her six-month term by two months, but has indicated she won’t stay beyond August.

The leadership void was underscored in mid-July, when both Wiseman and Mayor Dan Cort were away on overlapping two-week vacations.

High Crime – DMP Style

Later stories reported that evidence from burglaries was recovered. Scanner traffic said the victim was not being cooperative.

Officers responded to the area of Montecito and Buena Vista avenues to reports that a citizen was threatened with a knife and assaulted, police said.

Upon arriving, officers said they arrested William Carpenter, 20, of Marina.

Investigators said Carpenter and another man confronted and assaulted a neighborhood resident who was walking home.

Feast Of Lanterns Officially Ruined

Fire Dixie Lane. Appears that the kooks have taken over the last great funky thing in P.G.

“The whole festival represents our heritage in Pacific Grove,” said Feast of Lanterns President Dixie Lane. “It’s a fabulous little multi-cultural festival.”

This is Lane’s inaugural year to preside over the event, though she has been on the board for several years.

As a former student of history and a zealot for all things multicultural, Lane has focused on emphasizing multiculturalism and historical traditions for the 2009 Feast of Lanterns.

for not respecting cultures. Can’t even carry on traditions without being told we are all bad, bad citizens.

On the left side, a gallery celebrates the Feast of Lanterns, a P.G. tradition since 1905. Though the signs feature an Asian-inspired font and a bamboo trim, they don’t address why white P.G. high school students started enacting a “Chinese operetta” (featuring Princess Yum Yum) only a few years after P.G.’s actual Chinese-American residents were forced out of town. It doesn’t address what originally inspired the festival’s trademark Chinese lanterns, dresses and art styles. It doesn’t discuss Stanford Ph.D. student – and excavator of the Chinese village artifacts – Bryn Williams’ theory that the Feast of Lanterns tradition sprang out of a human need to romanticize, and appropriate, pieces of the very cultures we destroy.

There always was culture, and from the P.G. Chinese community – but not what the P.C. weenies at the Weakly would want . .Toms Cafe

Eeeek! Jumbo Flying Aggressive Squid Lurking Off Coast!

Humboldt Squid if attacked

Thousands of jumbo flying squid — aggressive 5-foot-long sea monsters with razor-sharp beaks and toothy tentacles — have invaded the shallow waters off San Diego, spooking scuba divers and washing up dead on tourist-packed beaches.

The carnivorous calamari, which can grow up to 100 pounds, came up from the depths last week and swarms of them roughed up unsuspecting divers. Some divers report tentacles enveloping their masks and yanking at their cameras and gear.

Stories of too-close encounters with the alien like cephalopods have chased many veteran divers out of the water and created a whirlwind of excitement among the rest, who are torn between their personal safety and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with the deep-sea giants.

Pollacci Goes To Trial

Tom Pollacci

On April 19, 2008, she came to the Monterey Peninsula to visit a friend and, after driving around, went into Ron’s Liquors to buy a pack of cigarettes, according to testimony by retired Pacific Grove Police Cmdr. Tom Uretsky. Pollacci recognized her, the two chatted for a few minutes, and she asked if he could get her through the gate at Pebble Beach. He told her he could and entered his number in her cell phone under the contact name, “Thomas My Love.” The following day, she tried to reach him but couldn’t. Later, he called and invited her to stop by the store, which she did.

P.G. School District – Tax, Spend, Beg, Tax, Spend

Lather, rinse, repeat. Odd that they spend the money on all things except books & supplies to teach our precious fry. Well at least we can play football on artificial grass.

If there were ever a monument to how local public entities waste taxpayers’ money, it is the Pacific Grove Unified School District’s use of the $42 million in Measure D tax revenues.

This money was designated for classroom and school facility repair and construction. Even though the existing stadium was adequate, $6.5 million of this money, 15 percent of all available Measure D funds, was used to build a state-of-the-art shrine to Jockdom under the euphemism of “stadium reconstruction.”
