P.G. School Found To Have Cameras In Kids’ Bathrooms

Creepy. Monterey Bay Charter School. Same one that had a teacher accused of child molesting in 2010.

School principal Cassandra Bridge told the Pine Cone last week that the school installed the cameras in the boys’ and girls’ bathrooms in 2013 to prevent vandalism.

While there’s a law on the books stating it’s a crime to place a camera inside a bathroom or other area where occupants have a reasonable expectation of privacy, police did not find that the charter school’s installation of the cameras rose to the level of a crime.

Pacific-Grove-Neighbors-United

Pacific Grove residents concerned about vacation rentals disrupting their neighborhoods have proposed a ballot initiative to keep the commercial operations out of their residential zones. A new public action committee, Pacific Grove Neighbors United, will be asking voters to stop the short-term rentals the city has allowed despite scores of complaints from impacted neighbors.

The group will host a campaign kick-off party to start a signature drive and every PG voter interested in signing; helping with the campaign or just seeking information is welcome to attend. The party will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, January 20, in Jewell Park, corner of Central and Forest Avenues.

Signature gatherers will soon spread out to the Post Office, the farmers’ market, grocery stores, and local events and even door to door in the drive that needs 1,000 valid voter signatures to get the initiative on the November, 2018 ballot.

Beaches Close As Millions Of Gallons Of Raw Sewage Dump In The Bay

From those fine people that brought you ongoing sewage spills at Lovers Point We have another one by Monterey One Water, better known as Monterey Regional Water Pollution Creation Agency.

Monterey One Water says as much as 4.9 million gallons of wastewater spilled into the Monterey Bay. The leak was caused by an equipment failure at their wastewater treatment facility in Marina. The beach coastline between Marina State Beach and Stillwater Cove, Monterey, California are closed as a result.

Monterey Getting $8,000,000 For A Short Section Of Recreation Trail Improvements

Eight Million Dollars for “to go from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Coast Guard station”. The money is coming from a grant (taxes) called the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 that was sold to the tax payers as an investment to fix our roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California. As usual, Governor Moonbeam lies about where our tax dollars are spent.

At least put some lights up and maybe a few 911 phones to cut down on the rapes, robberies and assaults that happens on that dangerous trail.
Recreation Trail Vandalism

“Solutions for congested corridors are usually for Los Angeles or San Francisco so one of the things that we try to do with this grant is highlight the importance of offering an environmentally friendly and alternate form of transportation,” said Andrea Renny. She said that by creating a smoother running trail, drivers could be swayed to become bikers, therefore the improved Rec Trail could also serve to alleviate congestion on the road. And while some have advocated for the need to separate the bicyclists and pedestrians in that stretch of the trail, Renny said that the Parks and Recreation Master Plan calls for widening the trail first before other alternatives can be considered.

Letters From The Editor – Let Store Owners Take Up Parking Spaces

Newcomer to P.G. thinks shoppers will park far from town to spend money, therefore LET store merchants take up all the 2 hour spaces all day.

I have lived in Pacific Grove for 18 years. In that period of time I have observed our parking meter police ticketing vehicles belonging to our local PG merchants and their employees. These people must interrupt whatever they are doing every two or three hours to move their cars from one spot to another. This is usually a few feet from where they were. How foolish is this?

Mark C. Klein needs TWO parking spaces for his Cadillac.

Mark C. Klein of Pacific Grove stands next to his 1975 Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Klein bought the car from an estate in Illinois. It had 3,900 original miles on it.

Smarter resident sets it straight.

The last time I worked in any city including Pacific Grove I was told that downtown parking was for customers and employees had to park elsewhere and walk to work. In Pacific Grove you can park on off streets and Pine Avenue with no time restrictions. Mr. Klein’s way of thinking is let’s make customers drive around looking for parking while businesses stay empty — no wonder Pacific Grove is losing money.
