Cedar Street Timeworn Owner Bankrupt

According to the Weakly.

Marge Ann Wimpee, also known as Marge Ann Jameson, editor of P.G.’s Cedar Street Times, is filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Among her biggest creditors: The Pacific Grove Hometown Bulletin, The Salinas Californian and The Register-Pajaronian.
According to filings with U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Jameson has almost $133,000 in unsecured debt. The big media creditors: Pacific Grove Hometown Bulletin, Inc. ($45,000); the Pajaronian($19,000) and the Californian ($17,000).
Jameson lists her monthly net income as $475 and values her personal property at $50,000. Most of that, $44,000, is tied up in Cedar Street stocks, interests and accounts receivable.
Jameson responds by email: “It’s a Chapter 13… no one’s business but mine and the creditors.”
Former Bulletin co-owner Xavier Maruyama says he and Edie McDonald sold Jameson the paper in 2013 for about $70,000. Jameson made the first payment of about $30,000, Maruyama says, but hasn’t paid since. “We had to sue her,” he says. “We found out we’re third in line.”

I Knew That Hear-Old Bill Was Fake

The price was too good to be true.

Fake bills for newspaper subscriptions have been mailed to residents in Monterey County and elsewhere in the state, and the California Attorney General’s Office is warning residents not to pay them.

The mailings may appear to be legitimate renewal notices from a local newspaper such as the Santa Cruz Sentinel or Monterey Herald, but the notices come from companies such as Magazine Payment Services, Lake Shore Publishers Service and Magazine Billing Network.

Drink Up At The Golf Club

The hard stuff’s on the way to save us. Why is tax revenue always brought up when someone wants something?

Point Pinos Grill operates inside a building owned by the city of Pacific Grove. Earlier this year, the restaurant operator said he applied for a full liquor license and hit a snag when the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control realized the use permit didn’t allow for the switch from just beer and wine to include hard alcohol.
Now the majority of city leaders said they’re willing to make the change, because it’s a restaurant just like any other in the city.

“The more revenue we have the more sales tax we collect and one again the more money that goes to (the city) and more people we employ, locally, who live locally and then spend their paycheck a locally,” said Point Pinos Grill operator Dory Ford.

The incident began before sunrise when Rutt broke into several houses in Pacific Grove, including one where he entered a bedroom where children were sleeping, took a shower, and fed the children with bananas, according to police.

The house was on the 600 block of Acorn Court.

“Rutt entered through an unlocked door. He showered, ate and then went into a (child’s) bedroom. (He) was apparently feeding the small children in their bedroom,” McSorley said.

The homeowners did not realize there was an intruder until they heard a shower running, police said. They called 911 at 4:30 a.m.

Rutt ran out of the house, broke into two more houses nearby, and stole some property, McSorley said. He entered through unlocked garages.

The children who Rutt encountered were not harmed, but their parents were “obviously freaked out,” McSorley said.

Rutt was recently released from the Monterey County Jail and is on probation for burglary. His family lives in Pacific Grove and family members are cooperating with police.
