From the message board at www.pacificgrove.com

Olga said goodbye to viewers, on air, at the end of July. Her contract was up and she had been her 5 years and decided she wanted to return to Southern California to pursue TV and entertainment opportunities there. Southern California is home for her.

Thanks for taking the time to write and ask about her.
Have a safe and wonderful holiday.

New Monterey Police Blotter – July 2010

Feast Of Lanterns Sideshow Attempts To Salvage Event

Once in a lifetime experience – pay to see the Feast Of Lanterns pageant. Dixie is dreaming.

Feast of Lanterns volunteers have attempted to keep the pageant and performance as close as possible to the traditions that people remember so well from Lovers Point.

“All will be going on as it does on the pier, with a few modifications for the Performing Arts Center,” said Layne. “There is usually a sea dragon in the water and the lighted boat parade. All these elements will be there — we’ve just had to bring in props. We’ve even (simulated) fireworks using lights and streamers. A dozen youths have been added to the performance to create dragons and lighted boats.”.

One cannot duplicate the element of excitement waiting to see if the princess can get into the tiny boat without falling in the water:

Feast Of Lanterns – If Not At The Beach, Never

Well the ticket admission thing in the middle school auditorium does not appear to have worked out well.

July 31 was just another foggy day at the beach this year.
FOL 2010

Feast of Lanterns board president Sue Renz said her phone has been ringing off the hook.

“They will call and say, ‘when are you going to be doing the Feast of Lanterns at the beach with the pageant and the fireworks?’ And I have to say to them, ‘we aren’t doing it there this year,'” said Renz.

For decades, the pageant and fireworks took place at Lover’s Point, but this year it’s moving to the middle school. That means no fireworks, a scaled back show and $20 tickets. There’s room for about 700 people at the middle school theater, but only a dozen tickets have been sold.

Not Supporting Feast Of Lanterns, Moe Rewrites History

Ammar & his chamber recreates another “Good Old Days” event at the beach one week after the real Chautauqua celebration of music & food should have been there (but is not this year..). It’s nothing by a money grabbing fleece the tourists from Fresno plot, not a community summer get together. What an insult.

FOL Empty Beach

“It’s a splendid celebration of Pacific Grove’s turn-of-the-century band festivals that livened the entire town,” he said. “The chamber is reviving the party that was first held in 1879 by the California Branch of the Chautauqua Circle.”

In those days, he said, the Chautauqua Circle celebrated with music, food and entertainment at Lovers Point.

Tree Posse Gets Neutered

Common sense comes to the tree policy – we can learn a lot from a ‘moron’.

Stumped

The proposals include measures to give more discretion about tree pruning and removal to property owners, and allow them to have a tree expert determine whether a tree is sufficiently unhealthy to cut down, rather than leaving that decision up to city officials.

They also call for an end to criminal penalties and limit any penalties to civil fines.

New Monterey Marijuana Pushers Getting Pushed Out

Gilroy got court orders to close their illegal pot store, Monterey seeks same.

No Lighthouse Ave pot club

Monterey City officials are seeking a permanent court order to shut down a medical marijuana dispensary that opened last year on Lighthouse Avenue.

A temporary order was issued in March by Monterey County Superior Court Judge Robert O’Farrell, in favor of the city, requiring MyCaregiver Inc. to close after the city sued.

New York Town Proposes "No Knock" List

One of the nice things about living in P.G. is that there are fewer annoying solicitors unlike Monterey. I see some hippy group once a year and the Witnesses occasionally, but it’s election time again and the canvassers are gearing up.

So the town of Rye is considering adopting a “do not knock” registry that would alert solicitors to the homes where they are not welcome.

Currently anyone going door to door, whether a vendor or on behalf of a non-profit group, needs a permit from the city clerk.

Under the new law, solicitors would have to obtain a copy of the registry and stay away from any address listed.
