They need to beef up the security for the sake of the workers there.

Central Drugs

Men wearing masks and hoods stormed Central Avenue Pharmacy in Pacific Grove at 5  p.m. last Tuesday, making off with a small amount of cash but no drugs, PGPD spokesman Rory Lakind said this week, and police are asking the public for help catching them. Investigators hope anyone who might have seen or heard anything will contact them. They are also hoping nearby homes and businesses might have captured images of the robbers with security cameras.

“We got excited because it was Pier 1 right on main street,” said Pier 1 shopper Connie Thompson.

Thompson said she is sad to see the storefront close. Ammar said in the case of the Pacific Grove store it came down to lease negotiations not sales.

“It’s financially viable they were just not prepared to sign the lease,” said Ammar about lease negotiations between Pier 1 and its landlord.

Hambrook’s Auction next door to Pier 1 has already closed its doors. The auction house was in business for almost five decades. The owner plans to renovate the space into an event center, a first for downtown Pacific Grove.

But Peake told The Pine Cone last week that the idea of allowing a marijuana outlet is now off the table. “Cannabis is not on council’s near-term agenda,” he said. “There wasn’t any appetite to move forward.” Peake was referring in part to concerns from the Pacific Grove Unified School District and residents. Pacific Grove Unified superintendent Ralph Porras, who worked in Santa Cruz schools for 18 years, said the availability of marijuana there was “hugely detrimental”to students.

In August 2008, the coastal commission approved an initial permit for the plan, and while that permit was extended several times, Ruby Falls, which bought the property in 2017 and is run by Robert Faulis, asked the commission to allow another extension until Aug. 7, 2020. But at the coastal commission’s Nov. 13 meeting in Half Moon Bay, the panel decided to bring the permit to a halt over what its staff said were concerns about water supply and sea level rise

Ecofarmers Ecomeet At Ecosilomar

Sounds scary. Are they set up to take away farms from white farmers and kill them?

The Ecological Farming Association (EcoFarm) is a nonprofit educational organization whose mission since 1981 is to promote health, social justice and ecologically sustainable farms.
