New Monterey Police Blotter – August 2010

P.G. Wins One Against The Episcopalians

Keeping us all safe from encroaching Episcopalians, good job!

A Superior Court judge has upheld Pacific Grove’s right to pursue a cross-complaint in an ongoing legal battle over expansion of a retirement home into a neighborhood.

After a January hearing, city-appointed hearing officer David Spradling found that Canterbury Woods committed four violations of city zoning laws by having dwellings outside the retirement-home campus as additional client units and providing them the same meals and housekeeping services.

He said Canterbury Woods violated the area’s single-family residential zoning by introducing a commercial use in the neighborhood when it expanded beyond the main retirement complex. But he didn’t find the retirement home in violation of its use permit.

Pollution Warnings Ignored At Lovers Point

Notice that the signs are only in English?
Lovers Point Pollution Warning

Warning water polluted

“They were everywhere the last time we came, but we didn’t see them this time, probably because we didn’t see them in the same places as last time,” Carey said, adding that his family took the warnings seriously.

“But we don’t go all the way into the water. Just to about here,” he added, motioning to his lower leg.

Posted at area beaches by Monterey County Environmental Health staff when beachwater bacteria levels exceed state standards, the 8-inch-by-11-inch signs reading “Warning! Ocean water contact may cause illness” hung at three entrances to the beach on Saturday.

Mayor Admits Butterfly Tree Cutting Was Wrong

Story reached the L.A. Times

Monarch fans are pitching in to bring more trees to the the butterfly trees. Send your donation to the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce, marked “Monarch Habitat Trees.” PO BOX 167, Pacific Grove 93950, 584 Central Avenue, Pacific Grove, CA 93950

No trees, no butterflies. Guess this will have to do:
bfly tree stand in

At a City Council meeting last week, Mayor Carmelita Garcia apologized for the city’s mismanagement of the tree cutting, calling it “a horrible mistake.” In the audience, people who had come to hear about emergency sanctuary repair wore toy butterfly antennae that bobbed up and down as the mayor spoke.

With the first monarchs due in about a month, volunteers have been scrambling for potted trees that can serve as makeshift butterfly shelter throughout the 2 1/2-acre sanctuary. “We’re hoping and praying,” said Moe Ammar, president of the Chamber of Commerce that serves the picturesque, sometimes fogbound town of Victorian homes.

“People who follow the monarchs come from all over the world,” Ammar said. “When we get calls asking if the butterflies have arrived, we have to be honest.”

Appalled Parents Call Cops On Skinny Dippers

At 9 pm on Carmel Beach. Well, it was a full moon in more ways than one.Moons of the Month

Carmel Police Sgt. Mel Mukai said a 29-year-old Carmel man and two 32-year-olds from Pacific Grove shucked their clothes and entered the water near Scenic and 10th. The men were naked, and the woman was topless.

Shortly after 9 p.m. Aug. 24, “as they were leaving the water, there was a large family gathering, and one of the parents was obviously appalled and decided to call us,” Mukai said.

Aaron Corn Preliminary Hearing

Aaron Corn

Sad to read the unexpected ending of a party. Speaking of – the whole long article has no mention of Seaside Police Commander Chris Veloz calling his son after he got word of the accident.

Pinkas said when he approached Corn, who was bleeding and drifting in and out of consciousness, he was “unresponsive.”

“I detected that he had alcohol coming from his breath and person … but I didn’t obtain a statement from him,” according to the officer.

Two other passengers, Matt Wheeler and Ahmad Mahmoud, were also injured in the crash. Hill was paralyzed.

Monterey police officer Mark Shell — who interviewed Miller the day after the accident — said Miller told him that before the crash, he was at the home of a classmate, CJ Veloz, on Syida Drive in Pacific Grove where there was a small party.

Ocean Rescue! Lifeguards & Police Respond. For A Dog.

Tax dollars at work. I thought there were no dogs allowed on the beach?

A small, white “Jack Russell terrier”-type dog decided to go for an impromptu swim Wednesday afternoon while walking with its owners on a Pacific Grove beach.

The dog swam out to a rock about 10 feet offshore near Beach Street and Ocean View Boulevard.

The dog didn’t swim back.

The owners called police, who alerted state lifeguards about the pooch on the perch, said fire Capt. Jim Brown.

Cross Bay Swimmer Surrenders

He gave up and used the wet suit. Chase failed to make the trip last year. This year his cause for restrictive seafood rules are mentioned with his other substainable BS not mentioned. Guess swimming among the seafood has better mojo than building schools in Afghanistan.
Bruckner

Bruckner Chase, 44, wanted to become the second person to finish the swim without a wetsuit — English Channel rules — but the toxic stings of jellyfish forced him to abandon that plan about two hours into the 14-hour swim.

Chase did the swim to attract attention to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, sustainable seafood programs and the Blue Ocean Film Festival, a five-day event that begins today in Monterey.
