When people like Thom Ache-Man block off shoreline access and close trails for the safety of increasing pinniped populations, what can you expect? An abundant supply of food for sharks and orcas.

**Kind of like attracting more and more tourists for thieves to prey on.

Bought gear there for my kids. Seemed higher priced but definitely an excellent customer experience.
While Sunshine Freestyle has had a few different owners over the years since it first opened in 1976, when Wenzlik and Kreyenhagen purchased it on April 1, 1998, the store carried winter sports gear. But when sales of skis, snowboards and winter clothing started to decline, they stopped carrying that inventory and turned their focus to summer merchandise.
“Since 2010, there’s been a lot of changes with corporations,” said Wenzlik, noting that both the REI in Marina and the Vans store in the Del Monte Center have affected his sales.
The one thing that remained over the years was the annual Surfabout two-day event that Sunshine Freestyle sponsored at Carmel Beach. This year, due to the store closing and mounting costs to schedule the use of the beach, the event was canceled.
“It was an idea of bringing the tribe – all the surfing communities around Monterey Bay and Monterey County – of bringing everybody together for a community family event and friendly competition,” explained Wenzlik, noting that this last three or four years, he’s been able to witness three generations compete in the contest. He hopes to resurrect the event in the future.

Better idea: bypass all the complicated water credit issues and send that toilet water straight to the new hotels.
So it must have been a shock to P.G. City Manager Ben Harvey to receive a letter from the state water board on May 16, stating that the board was holding back on the payment because the city’s plan might be a breach of contract.
The issue appears to be a discrepancy of interpretations stemming from the water board’s 2009 order to the Monterey Peninsula to stop using water from the Carmel River. One interpretation is that due to the order, P.G. cannot keep any new water credits for itself – they all have to go back to the river.

Seal posse Thom Ache-man’s bacteria pollutes beaches
The Monterey County Health Department has issued a Beach Advisory for Lovers Point Beach in Pacific Grove and Monterey Municipal Beach
There are various sources of bacteria such as marine life (i.e. seals, otters, and birds) and other animals; rainfall runoff; storm drains; and human activity. Rainfall is associated with increased bacterial levels due to runoff particularly in the area of man-made and natural storm drains such as culverts, streams and rivers.
Pollution Advisory For Beaches
Ahhh politics. Here’s a the work of one that looks good
Assemblymember Mark Stone — whose district includes Pacific Grove’s Monarch Sanctuary — is pushing a bill, AB 2421, to protect the iconic black and orange insects. “As monarch butterfly populations decline, ecosystems across our state are at risk of collapse,” said Stone, who introduced the bill in February. “This measure provides grants and support to preserve and restore monarch and other pollinator habitats.
Then we see what it really is. Looks like another tax and spend project.
The bill would establish the Monarch and Pollinator Rescue Program, which would be overseen by the California Wildlife Conservation Board. The program would offer grants to farmers, ranchers, nonprofits and public agencies to pay for habitat restoration projects throughout the state.
Politicizing The Butterfly
Making the wharf substainable. First the bags, then the straws and the cup lids. Next thing you know there will be cloth napkins and no more plastic toy souvenirs.
“It’s one thing to have a ban on plastic bags, but once you go to plastic straws it takes it up one more level,” said Mary Alice Cerrito Fettis, a board member and past president of the Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf Association. “We’re very excited that all the beverage serving businesses on Fisherman’s Wharf have figured out an alternative to using plastic straws.”
According to Ted Terrasas, the city’s sustainability coordinator, it was an effort to get early stakeholder input, especially by those most affected, the restaurant owners. About 30 attended the gathering, which included Monterey Bay Aquarium officials and local non-profit representatives.
Straws Banned On Wharf
Why there and not in Country Club Gate? The tower and it’s service pedestal box will only be targets for graffiti, adding to the already ugliness. AT$T put them in the cemetery.
“We have built our reputation on network reliability, for Pacific Grove this is really about staying ahead of the curve for meeting demand on data growth,” said Heidi Flato, a spokeswoman for Verizon. “Looking at the data and how much traffic is coming out of the high school and surrounding neighborhood, there is a need to add capacity to our network to that location.”
But those who oppose the new wireless facility said it’s not needed and there’s not enough known about the health effects of this newer cell technology.
“We have a Wi-Fi system that totally handles all their needs to go online,” said Pacific Grove High School Principal Matt Bell, who also noted that currently, the reception is excellent and students overall are really only using their cellphones on breaks and at lunch time. “We also really have a duty to make school as safe as we can possibly make it and currently there are conflicting report of the safety of cell tower emissions.”

Cannery Row™ is changing, along the lines of less Steinbeck and more Stockton.
Ciliberti purchased the historical caboose for $27,000 with the expectation to not only keep and maintain the piece of history and landmark in Cannery Row, but to also run an antique and collectibles business out of it as the previous owners did. He recently paid upward of $20,000 for the railroad memorabilia inventory owned by the caboose’s previous owners Debbie and Randy Reinstedt.
“I didn’t know – I purchased it with the idea of keeping and knowing that it would stay local and hopefully it would continue as a business,” said Ciliberti, noting that he had bought it under certain assumptions but had not yet talked with the city about it. “I recently purchased all the memorabilia with the hope to continue on the same path (as the previous owners).”
End Of The Line For Cannery Row Caboose
You need to approve it before you can see it. And the city manager that lives in another city needs to commute by jet. P.G. voters please don’t elect any more mistakes.
The mishandling of the failed luxury hotel project known as Project Bella ultimately cost Pacific Grove $100,000. That was the main finding of a recent Monterey County civil grand jury report investigating why the 160-room hotel development, which was proposed to replace the American Tin Cannery Outlets, failed to become a reality.
While Roufougar had also determined allegations that Harvey accepted paid airfare and other gifts from Domaine developer Ron Meer had no merit, the grand jury report looked deeper into Harvey’s part in a group membership into a private airline with his friend and sub-contractor of Domaine, Jared Ficker. Meer was also part of the membership.

And live music. I want reparations for the beer I had to pour out at LP.
Hosted by the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce, the musical events will take place between 5:30 and 7 p.m. at the Lovers Point Beach Cafe beneath the Beach House Restaurant at 620 Ocean View Blvd.
It’s the first time that such concerts with featured acts including Johnny Tsunami and the Shoulder Hoppers, Boscoe’s Brood and Tony Miles will also offer concert attendees the option to buy beer, wine and small bites to eat.
