Maybe the mayor needs to be in the city managers real hometown to know what’s going on.
“I was not aware that Ben Harvey was contacting cannabis companies in July,” Peake said. “I was surprised because there was no interest in a cannabis store shown by the council.”
Harvey said Monday there was absolutely nothing inappropriate about his conversations and meetings with Apothecarium, and that to do so is part of his job as a type of ombudsman between elected officials and business projects.
“Part of my job is to deal with prospective businesses,” Harvey said. “I routinely meet with people interested in starting a business here, whether it’s a retailer, restaurant, brewpub or a cannabis dispensary.”
Another criticism of Harvey is that he allowed the one company, Apothecarium, to help draft the ordinance that would then be presented to the council on Sept. 2. Harvey argued there is nothing out of the ordinary in doing this. And he is right in that industry helps draft legislation in Sacramento regularly.
Mayor Peak Stone Deaf Of Harvey’s Dealings
Confirmed suicide. Name not yet released.
Suicide was determined to be the cause of death of a 56-year-old man whose body was found late last month near the ocean in Pacific Grove, a commander with the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office told the Pine Cone this week.
At about 12:30 p.m., officials recovered the body of the man on the west side of Ocean View Boulevard across from Crespi Pond near a vehicle turnout. While the cause
of death, at that time, was not known, foul play was not suspected.
Body Found At Shore Was Suicide
“At this time, a Pacific Grove Police detective is working with the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office in determining the cause of death,” police administrative services manager Jocelyn Francis told The Pine Cone.
While there does not appear to be any foul play related to the unidentified man’s death, Francis said the sheriff’s office had a dive team search the water for any evidence. Sheriff’s office spokesman Cmdr. Derrel Simpson told The Pine Cone that the man was from Monterey County and was 56 years old.

Good thing there were no parklets in the way
The first accident happened around nine in the morning. The driver was trying to park but hit the gas instead of the break driving into Bookmark Music Store on Forest Avenue. No one was hurt but significant damage was done to the storefront. Then about an hour later — a second driver drove into the side of Mum’s Furniture Store. The shop is also in downtown Pacific Grove and it is also on Forest Avenue, just one block away from the first accident
