What Are We, A Bunch Of Prius Driving Closet Beef Lovers?

Idea from Margaret E. Leighton of Seaside, that town with the car lots that pretend to be in Monterey..

I’m sorry, but I don’t care if they do make the fries from a whole potato while I look on in awe — I can’t get bacon!

And while I appreciate that all of you closet burger-eaters from P.G. flock in the evenings to Seaside to get the fast food unavailable to you in your hometown, go home in your Prius, and badger your city council for an In-N-Out burger.

Who Wants More Motels On P.G.'s Shoreline?

Our elected tax grubbers, and Moe.

American Tin Cannery Outlets – Future Motel?
American Tin Cannery

No, please don’t build more motels on the beaches. Are more rooms really what we need? The crusty motels need to provide the customers their money’s worth. Tear down some of those Brokaw Halls they call lodges and build something worth coming to.

ATC should be torn down and made into a condo. Corral all them part time residents into their own vacation home paradise.

And tell Moe he can make more money selling parking spots to the ‘good ol boys club’ at his new gaudy tourist information center. I see way more cars in that lot than people in the building. What’s going on there?

Visions of tax revenues from new hotel rooms are dancing in the heads of city officials. They estimate about 80 hotel rooms could be added at existing properties, which would bring in up to $300,000 a year more to city coffers. Even more bed tax money would be generated by new hotels near Lovers Point and the Monterey Bay Aquarium where the American Tin Cannery sits.

Representatives from the business community told the council the city should pick up the tab. Moe Ammar, leader of the local Chamber of Commerce, for example, said that since the city would gain thousands of dollars in increased bed tax from new guest rooms, the city should pay.

But residents who spoke to the council said the businesses should pay.

The council split the difference, voting 6-0 that the city would put up half the money if the hospitality industry put up the other half. The city is waiting for a response..

Acting Stupid Will Not Save Angel Ruelas

Being stupid may reduce his lifespan, though

A judge has ruled that a former Soledad man charged with the 1997 slaying of Monterey High School student Kristopher Olinger is competent to stand trial.

Judge Mark Hood ordered a mental evaluation for Angel Ruelas on May 4 after a bizarre verbal standoff over Ruelas’ efforts to represent himself in trial as a “sovereign citizen.”

Ruelas, who is in Salinas Valley State Prison on an unrelated carjacking conviction, somehow latched onto the theories and has had a series of nonsensical exchanges with Hood in recent months.

Front Yard Golf Course Destroyed

By order of the state. Make way for ugly native weeds.

Scraped earth is all that remains of a well kept mini golf course that was once prominent in the front of Robert and Maureen Feduniak’s house not far from Cypress Point. A bulldozer ripped out the lavish greens over the past two weeks.

The seemingly innocuous golf course — which looked like little more than a well groomed lawn to passersby — first drew the ire of the coastal commission in 2001 when the state agency was notified by a Del Monte Forest Foundation forester the novelty course violated a conservation easement limiting landscaping on the property to native plants — a condition of a 1983 permit for the home.

State Labor Board Sides With P.G. Cops

Capped. Sounds like shooting it dead. Who makes up that labor board?

CalPERS allows a police officer to retire at 50 with a substantial pension. Police argue that it will be difficult to recruit and retain officers if their pension plan is capped.

The PERB complaint follows a lawsuit the PGPOA filed on Nov. 3, 2010, against the city over the pension issue. “The retirement contribution ordinance exceeds the initiative power of the people and violates the city’s charter and is therefore invalid and unenforceable,” according to the suit filed in Monterey County Superior Court.

Pollacci's Next Rape Trial To Stay In Monterey County

Parking for jury

Tommy has a public defender?

The trial of former liquor store worker Tom Pollacci — who was convicted last year of raping a woman before being charged with three more rapes — will not be moved to Madera County as his public defender had sought.

Though Pollacci’s attorney, Michelle Wouden, had argued the trial should be moved because it would be difficult to seat an impartial jury considering the extensive news coverage of Pollacci’s criminal cases, Superior Court Judge Terrance Duncan ruled May 20 the trial will stay in Monterey County.
