Pack everyone in multiple dwelling units, ride side by side in public transit. Yah don’t breath, folks
The dedicated naysayers and their various acolytes in government and associated lobbying groups have long criticized the typical single-family home, like those found throughout San Mateo County, as a huge waste of space, economic resources, land and other societal requirements.
It’s been the goal of the single-family foes to halt, or severely limit, any further construction of such houses in favor of their preferred option, decidedly unattractive, multi-story, stack-and-pack apartment/condo buildings, many of them monolithic eyesores.
But guess what? The very nature of the single-family home – a stand-alone structure, with front and rear yards, separated from its neighbors (sometimes by fencing) – would tend to allow its residents to self-quarantine in some very laudable and significant degrees of isolation.
That Substainable Living Stuff Is Spreading Virus’
Closed in the mid afternoon. Some enforcement, eh?
Right before Easter weekend, City Manager Ben Harvey gave the Pacific Grove Police Department the authority to immediately shut down any outdoor recreational area if too many people showed up and didn’t follow social distancing rules required under Monterey County’s shelter-in-place order. The parks and shore areas remained open.
Two weeks later, on Saturday, April 25, the beautiful sunny weather proved too enticing. Too many people showed up to Lovers Point Beach, at least in the estimation of PGPD. The department shut down the beach about mid-afternoon until further notice citing the lack of social distancing.
Rules Ignored, Beach Closed
So, what was so secret about naming the person in such a serious wreck? Is she THAT Keller?
Authorities say Ashley Nicole Keller,23, was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic Feb. 6 on Ocean View Boulevard in a white Chevrolet Corvette when she lost control and struck four cars. Keller and her male passenger, who had to be extricated, were injured. Keller now faces one misdemeanor charge of reckless driving in the accident which totaled her 2014 Corvette. Four other motorists reported minor pain, police said.
“Ashley Nicole Keller did unlawfully drive a vehicle upon a street and highway in willful and wanton disregard for the safety of persons and property,” the complaint, filed March 28 by deputy district attorney Todd Hornik, alleges.Keller, who court records show had two minor traffic offenses in 2015 and 2016, faces up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in
fines, if convicted. No attorney information for Keller was listed on the court’s website. The Pacific Grove Police Department refused to identify Keller, whose name was only made public when the criminal complaint was filed.
Ashley Nicole Keller Krunched The Korvette
A girl, “quite literally running for her life, came tearing off the path into the street dragging her dogs along with her,” Elyse said in a post on a social media site.
“She was trying to get away from coyotes that were chasing her.”
In trying to help the young woman flee the pack of coyotes — there were as many as five of them, she said — Elyse yelled at her to walk on the ocean side of 17 Mile Drive while Elyse walked on golf course side, since, at that point, the coyotes seemed to be coming after her. “They circled us and came way too close,” said Elyse, who estimated the wild animals got about 10 feet from her. After a few minutes, the other woman and her dogs were picked up by someone in a car and the coyotes left the area.

Ninth Street Nannies.
Around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, at least a dozen people gathered in the middle of Ninth Street between Junipero and Spruce avenues to drink, converse with neighbors
and enjoy the weather. But quite a few people took to social media to criticize the participants
“These are not good citizens,” said one Pacific Grove resident who added a common expletive to emphasize the point. Another commenter called them “idiots who can’t social distance,” while someone else said they were “stupid” “Covidiots — that’s what they are,” a woman said. The unidentified revelers, who appeared to be in their 30s and 40s, later moved the party from the street to their front yards. Responding to complaints, police arrived about an hour after the party started, people on social media said. Police spokeswoman Shayla Hoffman said by the time officers arrived, everyone was standing in their own driveways. Nobody was arrested, she said. Monterey County Undersheriff John Mineau told the press yesterday that “There are teeth in the county health officer’s order” to shelter in place. “It is a misdemeanor to violate” the order.
