Honeymooners Stroke Stroke Stroke For A Record

Riaan and Vasti Manser, who just spent two months shoulder to shoulder rowing 2,400 miles from Monterey to Hawaii, should find themselves together not only in this life, but the next.

The South African couple, who opted to spend their honeymoon rowing their way to a place where most honeymooners go to lounge on the beach and sip from drinks with little umbrellas, on Tuesday finished they journey in a record 39 days, four hours and 27 minutes. They also severely tested their relationship.

Money For Monarchs

“Past mishaps”
Butterfly Tree Stump

Fish & Wildlife to grant money for restoration and improvements.

“We walk around and talk about the state of the sanctuary and what the activities are that we have decided are good for the grove,” said Weiss. “The idea is that we want to be open and transparent about why we recommend doing certain things to keep every one on the same page about what’s happening in the grove.”

That transparency is so important to Weiss and city officials because of the past mishaps that have occurred with the city’s management of the sanctuary.

In Shape Gyms Fined $26,000,000

Can’t you use a prepaid credit card to open a ‘trial’ membership? Places sound as corrupt as carpet stores and furniture stores.

In Shape

Without acknowledging liability, In Shape agreed to provide $23 million in different forms of restitution to past and current members and pay a $3 million dollar penalty. The health club will also be bound by a 5-year injunction to prevent future unfair practices.

The multi-county investigation began in 2014 in response to complaints that In Shape sold “free” services without fully disclosing membership terms, refused to accept cancellation requests, issued unauthorized billing statements and pursued collections on invalid debts. The alleged violations occurred as the club expanded from 40 to 70 health clubs between 2010 and 2015.

NIMBYs In Del Monte Park Say It’s For The Trees

Please think about the trees says the neighborhood that looks down on Pebble Beach workers who would live across the fence from them. As they continue to cover more ground for driveways and mini mansions.

DMP

Arguing that the Pebble Beach Co. should find an alternate site for its Del Monte Forest affordable housing apartment complex project that doesn’t include removal of 725 trees, the Del Monte Neighbors United group will get a chance to make its case before the Board of Supervisors next week.

“Thus, this appeal is not about blocking inclusionary housing,” he wrote. “This is about the removal of 725 mature trees in the Monterey pine forest, which has been fragmented and harmed by years of incremental development, and there are alternative projects that would still provide much-needed inclusionary housing without the commensurate environmental impacts.”

Monterey Now Eyeing Aquarium For More Rent

P.G. not the only town looking under rocks in the tide pools for treasures.

Giant Salmon fish

On Tuesday night, the Monterey City Council voted 3-2 to hire an appraiser to evaluate the land.

Several residents spoke against the appraisal, asking why the city wants to spend $31,000 of the tideland fund, but Monterey City Manager Mike McCarthy says the lease agreement allows the city to perform rent review.

“Our lease with the aquarium for the tidelands requires a review on the rent,” McCarthy said.

One dollar per year is all the State Lands Commission wanted when the aquarium first asked to build on the tidelands in 1981.

Fewer Seals Sighted Sunning On Shore

Tired of being watched so the went to Pismo?

Hungry Alien Sharks

People along the coast in Pacific Grove have been asking where all the seals have gone. According to a new census report, at least a third of the harbor seals along the Monterey Peninsula have disappeared.

Seal experts said it is hard to know how many of the missing seals are actually dead, but studies show that at least 40 disappear from the Monterey Peninsula colony each year.

“Particularly for the harbor seals if you come up to this fence you don’t want to go above the fence line. They take that as a threat and they will immediately vacate the beach. So we want to control that stress level because they’re already dealing with a lot,” said Kim Akeman.

Air BNB Rental Adds Up To Loss

and… “Calculator.”

In a lengthy Facebook blog post, a California woman recently explained her horror story with an Airbnb guest who allegedly left behind thousands of dollars in damage and — according to the homeowner — may have been running an adult business from the house.

When the homeowner returned to survey the damage, she entered Vera’s room and noticed a number of things that set off her something’s-wrong-dar.

“I noticed that there was a handbag with only condoms in it,” she tells CBS, but her blog post includes more explicit details, like the sex toy left out in the open. Those alone may be found in the private rooms of countless women and aren’t really evidence of any illicit business.

However, the homeowner also found what appears to be a checklist of photos or videos that Vera needed to shoot, like “Masturbating Vid,” “Bent Over A**/White Thigh Highs,” and… “Calculator.”

While the Hanes family appeals this decision, Lisa found and posted emails between Pacific Grove city employees on the city’s Facebook page that she says”Let’s the community know what’s really going on.”

Hanes says she will not remove the posts from the city’s Facebook page as she’s not legally obligated to and because of the support she’s gotten from them. Pacific Grove Mayor Bill Kampe told KION that no further action by the city will be taken in regards to the posts. Pending an appeal, the family has till August 20th to relocate Bruiser the Pig out of the city.

Tourist Misinformation

Who do you take advice on Pacific Grove hospitality? People that have spent time and $$ in the locations or a self serving “Information Center”?

Ed Flatley, who owns Pacific Grove’s Victorian bed and breakfast the Seven Gables Inn with his sister Susan, proposed creating the center as a way to generate business for the city during the economic downturn. Since it opened its doors five years ago, the center has served over 550,000 visitors from 120 countries, according to Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce President Moe Ammar.

“The internet is great to get people to the area but once you’re here it’s a great way for visitors to get local information,” said Flatley, noting that hospitality is the number one money generator in Pacific Grove. “It actually saves time to stop in here. Visitors can find out where to eat, stay, etc. in a matter of minutes.”
