Boy Scouts Celebrate 100 Years. P.G.Troop 90 Says "Been There, Done That"

Congratulations BSA and thank you Troop 90.

Scouts 100th

The Boy Scouts of America will mark its 100th anniversary Feb. 8, when the first scout troop was officially chartered in 1910.

But Troop 90 in Pacific Grove claims to trace its lineage to a scout organization founded in 1908 at the Presidio of Monterey.

Pacific Grove Troop 90 claims to be Troop 1’s direct descendant. In an exchange of letters between Alfred Young, executive of Scout Council 25 in Salinas, and Bullard’s wife in 1936, Young reported that Troop 1 operated from 1908 to 1912, drifted gradually to Pacific Grove from 1912 to 1918, and was registered as Troop 1, Pacific Grove, from 1918 until 1924, when the number was changed to Troop 90.

P.G. Library Still Needs Funds. Let's Blow $40,000 On A Web Site

And sustainable kook Deborah “Bankrupt” Lindsay calls volunteer websites “schlock”. Some sites might be schlock, but only a schmo would buy a website to mislead tourists to visit our drek ghost town.

Liberry books

Pacific Grove will spend nearly $40,000 on a new website the city says will draw more tourists downtown and bolster business.

Though the Pacific Grove City Council went back and forth on the issue at the Jan.20 meeting, council members ultimately approved a resolution authorizing the city to spend $39,950 on a new website.

Tommy Pollacci's Day In Court Pushed Away – Down The Stairs

Tom Pollacci

The defense attorney for a Pebble Beach man charged with raping an unconscious woman said he has two experts who believe the alleged victim was injured when she fell, not during an attack.

Andy Liu plans to argue at trial that Thomas Pollacci had consensual sex with the woman and brought her to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula after she sustained a severe head injury in a fall.

That trial, which was to have begun Monday, was continued to March 22 because the prosecutor needed time to review reports by a forensic pathologist and a biomechanical engineering professor hired by Liu.

Are we for some reason here drifting away from the REAL reason Tommy is in this situation? Rape. RAPE. The trial is for rape.

One Less Gallery On Forest Avenue. Does Anyone Notice?

A vapid shop rarely open replaced by a vapid shop never opened.

Robert Lewis was excited when January 2008 was the best month for sales at his small art gallery — but then the recession hit quickly.

A month later, sales “were virtually zero,” said Lewis. They haven’t been much better since, so Lewis is closing Le Beau Soleil Gallery in downtown Pacific Grove on Saturday.

Now, Lewis said he will spend about half his time painting and marketing his oils, which start at about $5,000.

Hmmm, $5,000 for one of these and the man wonders why sales are zilch.Art question mark

Police released photographs of the men Monday in hopes that they will turn themselves in or someone will recognize them, Lt. Leslie Sonne said.

In photos from the museum, the men are seen switching the caps on wax figures. Sonne said several of the figures were broken.

Police said the first suspect is a white male, 19- to 22-years old, 5-feet-8 inches tall, 160 pounds and either bald or with very short light colored hair. The other is also a white male, 21 to 25-years-old, 5 -feet 11-inches tall, 170 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair, police said.

Holman Hotel Developer Spends Big On Politicians

And cries when pressed.

If this $10K contribution check ever existed there would be a canceled check to prove it, right?

Today, Agha stands by his story, and he contends the FPPC failed to pursue the case “because of monetary constraints.” He said he has hired a Sacramento attorney to try to convince the agency to reopen the investigation.

“It’s all there if they did their job correctly,” he said.

Potter said, “For me it’s ancient history. I have been exonerated, and I’m not spending time worrying about it.”

As for Agha’s pursuit of the matter, Potter said Agha appears to believe “the more money he spends the more he will get his way.”

Herald's Parent Company Files Bankruptcy

So, is getting less news for more money really working out?

Denver Business Journal

Affiliated Media is the holding company for the MediaNews Group family of newspapers, the nation’s second-largest newspaper publisher by circulation. The company owns 54 daily newspapers — including the San Jose Mercury News, Salt Lake Tribune, Detroit News, St. Paul Pioneer Press and Los Angeles Daily News — and more than 100 non-daily newspapers, as well as websites, television and radio broadcasters that serve markets in 12 states.

MediaNews Group’s creditors, including Bank of America, are owed $930 million. According to a statements made by Singleton last week, they have agreed to swap debt for equity, a move that will reduce MediaNews’ debt to $165 million.
