Butterflies Coming Back

Monarch Cluster

“A lot of urban development has destroyed suitable habitat,” said Stuart Weiss of Menlo Park, a conservation biologist with Creekside Center for Earth Observation.

“Monarchs are very finicky about where they make their clusters,” Weiss said. They need the right temperature, humidity and wind exposure; otherwise, they move on to a more suitable area. The forests that monarchs like to cluster in are so small now, “the loss of a few trees can open up a site to more wind,” he said.

Weiss is working with Pacific Grove on a management plan for the sanctuary so it can better deal with the loss of trees or other changes in the grove.

“Urban Development?” Nothing but clueless people put in charge here.

Fresno Gang Members In Stolen Car Escape P.G. Police

Fresno Connection

SLO caught them. Not to many escape routes from route 1 in south county.And Moe Ammar always told us how much the people from Fresno like our town.

Flora Encinia, 32; Delia Pena, 21; Manuel Del Real, 21; Ramiro Vasquez, 22; and Joe Hernandez, 28, were arrested late Sunday in San Luis Obispo County after a crime spree that began with a vehicle theft in Fresno County.

The group is accused of stealing a black Lincoln Navigator and robbing two gas station attendants during a wild ride that took them through Pacific Grove, Big Sur and Gorda, police said.

Because their alleged crimes span three counties, they could face charges in any of them, law enforcement officials said. Most likely, they’ll end up in a San Luis Obispo courtroom first.

Husband & Wife Campers Fight

Who said camping was a way to relax and de-stress?

At about 6 p.m. Friday, Arthur W. Davis of Seaside began arguing with his wife over camping issues and walked away from their campsite off Naciemnto Ferguson Road in Big Sur, the Sheriff’s Office said. He ended up walking up a mountain and got lost. After waiting several hours his wife contacted the Sheriff’s Office, which then dispatched its Search and Rescue team.

Waited several hours for him to return before calling for help?

Everything he ever knew about fighting he learned in communal showers.

Police reported the case started late Monday when a cell phone was taken in a vehicle break-in in a grocery store parking lot.

The victim used the phone’s GPS and found that it “pinged” near an apartment in the 600 block of Archer Street.

He knocked and a man who had been working as a street sweeper in the lot where the break-in happened answered the door. The man denied having the cell phone.

The victim said he just wanted the sim card from the phone and offered $50. The man told him to come back later. The victim came back about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday with two police officers.

The apartment resident again denied having the cell phone, but the GPS indicated it was a few feet away. Officers convinced the man to return the cell phone, and he said it was in a downstairs apartment.

One officer went downstairs, and the suspect struck the other officer with a wet towel in his hand. He told police he was scared and nervous.

The suspect, Kenny Barba, 41, was booked into Monterey County Jail on charges of battery of a peace officer and possession of stolen property.

He passed out the son was just frozen. I took over picked him up and put him on the bench and resuscitate him he looked up and smiled, a great Thanksgiving,” said Carbone.

County Asks Judge To Dismiss Lawsuit By "Art Theft" Victims

Relationships, defamation and dubious art thefts.

Monterey County is asking a judge to quickly throw out a defamation lawsuit against the Sheriff’s Office filed by two men who contend they lost a world-class collection of art to thieves.

An attorney for the county says in court papers that the two men – Dr. Ralph Kennaugh and Angelo Amadio – have little chance of prevailing in their October suit that accuses the Sheriff’s Office of publicly defaming them in comments to the media about the massive art theft.

Christopher Cayce, the men’s attorney, argues that the Sheriff’s Office “egregiously used the media to litigate this matter in the press.” He says the sheriff’s spokesman made “egregious lies” unrelated to the “underlying investigation.”

The two men contend that the Sheriff’s Office sought to discredit Amadio because of his relationship with the daughter of a man with influential ties to the Sheriff’s Office.

Moreover, Cayce says in court papers the two men provided the Sheriff’s Department with documentation about the missing artwork, but the media were told the men were being uncooperative.

Carbon Monoxide Kills Two In Monterey

If you have gas appliances of any kind, a carbon monoxide detector is a must. You can find one at Ace Hardware.

Firefighters were sent to a Monterey home in the 700 block of Lottie Street at 9:17 a.m. Monday on reports of two people who were unresponsive.

When firefighters arrived, they determined that there were high levels of carbon monoxide in the apartment.

The causes of death were determined to be accidental.

Deputies said a wall-mounted gas heater appears to have played a role in their deaths.

Green Crime On The Rise

Add possible theft and jail crowding to the cost of going green.

Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies say charges of grand theft and trespassing are pending against five male juveniles suspected of stealing a solar panel and battery used to power an electric fence on a ranch in San Lucas.

Deputies said that at 11:10 a.m. Sunday, the boys, ranging in age from 14 to 16, trespassed onto the ranch on Star Road and removed the panel and battery, then buried them in anticipation of retrieving the goods later.

Deputies said they followed the footprints from the scene to a house in San Lucas.
