Officials say on December 7, 2017, Jane Doe arrived home to find Thomas highly intoxicated and sitting on the couch with a hammer. He was annoyed at their upstairs neighbors for being too loud, and told Doe he felt like “murdering them.”

When Doe tried to calm him down, Thomas stepped on her feet and threatened to “smash” her. He then threatened to strangle and kill their cat if it came out from under the bed. Doe, terrified, tried to leave, but Thomas took her phone, shoved her down on their bed, forbid her from leaving, and then began swinging the hammer around her head as he continued to threaten to “smash her” with it.

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.

Central Pharmacy Robbed Again

It’s 2 AM in P.G., took 3 minutes to get to an alarm activation at a pharmacy.

Central Drugs

The break-in triggered the pharmacy’s burglar alarm, and though officers arrived within three minutes of getting the call, the thieves were already gone. “We got there, and you could tell from standing across the street that the front door was ajar,”

After officers discovered the thieves had pried open the door, they searched the business and discovered it had been burglarized. Owner Dana Gordon arrived and provided officers “a very rough idea of what was taken,” Fenton said — items related to opioids.

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.

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.

Sea Lion Population Triples

More orcas and sharks will quickly follow. Thanks Thom Ache-man

But all the sea lions have caused problems.

They have broken docks and sunk boats at marinas. They have vexed salmon fishermen, following their boats and eating valuable fish off their lines.

“With some fishing days seeing as few as five to 10 fish, a commercial fisherman can still make money with 10 fish if they are $10 per pound, but if you’re losing them to sea lions that can have a major effect,” said John McManus, executive director of the Golden Gate Salmon Association in San Francisco.

Park In Parker’s Park?

Not many van dwellers willing to take up offer. Why? Because there are rules? Because it’s easier to park on city streets?

$150,000 spent. Six people served. Tax and spend.

According to a report to the county Health and Human Services committee, a total of six participants have signed up so far for the program, including its access to case management services aimed at providing links to jobs and housing. But none had actually parked at the site as of last week
