Pet Killer Still Leaving Antifreeze Baited Food

Evidence points to another resident in the same apartment complex. People who torture animals often graduate up to other crimes. .

The person who placed a dish of antifreeze in a flower bed of a Pacific Grove apartment complex to kill a tenant’s cat in September set out two more bowls of the poison, this time adding food to the toxic soup so it would be more enticing to felines.

Governator Sends Coded Message

get to da choppa

And it’s not “get to the choppa”

Schwarzenegger on Friday responded for the first time about a profanity-laced phrase spelled out on the left-hand margin in his veto message to a state lawmaker who had heckled the governor at a San Francisco event.

The governor smiled as he told reporters at the White House, “That was a total coincidence. It was one of those wild coincidences.”

Moammar Shocked That Tourists Don't Buy $22 Noodles

Shocked! Just Shocked!!
Also continues to slam the Farmers Market. Can’t let a day go by without dissing something that benefits the residents.

Ammar said the restaurants in Pacific Grove that are doing the best right now are moderately priced, family places such Holly’s Lighthouse Cafe or Vivolo’s Chowder House, for example.

“I actually heard some tourists talking one day and they said: ‘Instead of going to (higher-end) Fandango, let’s grab some sandwiches at the farmers market,'” he said. “I’ve seen tourists open their trunks to eat out of their coolers.”

"Art Theft" Victims Speak After Weeks Of Silence

Do they really want the FBI in on this? Careful what you wish for..

Two men who say millions of dollars’ worth of art were stolen from their rented Pebble Beach home have asked the FBI to investigate the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office for possible “corruption, collusion and cronyism.”

Nearly three weeks after a sheriff’s spokesman declared that Angelo Benjamin Amadio and Dr. Ralph Kennaugh had become suspects in their own case, an attorney for the men is asking federal authorities to look into why the department’s response to the theft was “to victimize the victim.”

Letters From The Editor – 'Does Your High School Matter'

Letter published aimed at the Carmel Valley city-or-not voters:

If you need proof that newcomers usually don’t have the veteran residents’ welfare and concerns in their hearts, witness the recent past in Pacific Grove.

Hopefully, Pacific Grove is back on the right track. Residents do care where their leaders went to high school.

Reference to Deborah “Debt” Lindsay, one of our short time residents elected to council slamming longtime local Carmelita Garcia in the recent mayoral choice debate. See the You Tube video for “the speech”.

City Comes Out On Top In Gay Cop Harassment Case

Smolinski sought an unspecified amount of money in damages. He claimed the police department’s email system was used to “circulate information which utilized derogatory terms and statements relating to homosexual and bisexual individuals.”

One joke, entitled, “Time for your annual “Am I Gay” self examination,” included seven offcolor, disparaging questions, he said. The sender included a disclaimer that the message was intended as a joke.

Was going to add a photoshopped picture of a lavender police car but decided not to.
Even though the city won this (it must have cost a lot of library $$ to defend) whomever was using the city’s email to send jokes needs a days suspension or better. What other city resources are the highly paid public safety employees wasting our money on?
