Forest Avenue Safeway Still A Dangerous Place

Safeway Forest Hill 3 Forths

Crazies there.

The 38-year-old victim was at the Safeway parking lot on Forest Avenue about 9:30 a.m. when a woman asking for a job approached her. The victim offered the suspect a ride, not knowing she was armed with a handgun, Pacific Grove said.

Once in the car, the suspect took out the weapon and threatened to harm the mother and her children if she was not taken to a location in Salinas, police Sgt. Jeff Fenton said.

Wharf Restaurant Bans Babies

Admin here once worked in some P.G. food establishments. When cleaning up after messy “families” I wished there was an added charge for cleaning up after the rug rats.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” tourist Teresa Colombani said. “I think kids need to know how to behave in restaurants, and if you, don’t take them to them, they don’t know how to behave and they shouldn’t be kept hidden away, so I think it’s ridiculous, kids should be allowed in restaurants.”

The owner of the restaurant, Chris Shake, said if customers don’t like the rules, they can go somewhere else for dinner.

Shake said not only does he stand by the signs, but said his business has never been better.

“Well let’s put it this way, I haven’t had a down year for over 20 years,” Shake said. “Our business continues to grow.”

Fish Having Loud Sex Keeping Residents Awake

One Steven Gray of Pacific Grove blames the noise on military research. Nope Steven just fish looking for love.

Fish Have Sex In This Water

The sound is being heard by residents living about a quarter-mile away from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Jim Covel, the aquarium’s director of guest experience — who has experience with this species — said the sound likely comes from “lonesome males” trying to attract mates.

The endless motor-like sounds are produced by their strong muscles pressing against their balloon-like bladders. They hit the bladder about 6,000 times a minute — twice the speed of a hummingbird’s wings — and do it during a mating season that usually starts in May and ends in September. The loud hum can last for more than an hour at a time.

Recently Uncovered Ad Soon To Be Covered Again

Bar owner also objects to Outzenville project because new residential tenants are likely to complain about noise after moving next to a bar.

Bull Durham Carbones

A “Bull” Durham tobacco sign discovered last week on Lighthouse Avenue is likely about 90 years old, University of California archives show.

The sign, on the north wall of Carbone’s Bar at 214 Lighthouse Ave., was uncovered last week when eight decaying structures were demolished.

The “Genuine ‘Bull’ Durham Tobacco” painting is almost identical to a 1925 advertisement from the company, shown in documents collected by the UC San Francisco’s Legacy Tobacco Documents Library.

The building is not on Monterey’s historic register and a planned project will likely cover it up. But residents will probably be able to view it for at least another month or two.

At Least It’s Not Gull Poop Covering The Sidewalk

When you don’t have enough room to bolt a fence to the sidewalk and your sandwichboard sign is not big enough just take some paint and use the sidewalk to advertise your shop. At least use a paint that matches gull droppings so you don’t trouble like a shop on Grand once did for painting the sidewalk.

Stuart Elder DUI Trial Set

Hope Elder never drives a car again.

California Highway Patrol officers say that on the evening of the crash, Elder’s Cadillac SUV swerved into an opposing lane of Sloat Road in Pebble Beach. The Cadillac crashed into a 2005 Ford. LaRone and Daly died at the scene. The women were well known locally as former owners of a Pacific Grove pet store.

He was arrested at the scene by CHP officers and released on $430,000 bail.

Elder is charged with two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, plus a special enhancement of causing great bodily injury to his passenger, 20-year-old Selvia Gattas.
