Recreation trail can be a dangerous place. Now an attacker that repeatedly stabbed a young lady there is about to be freed. Not right.
The California Board of Parole Hearings, represented by two parole commissioners, granted Jason Blad parole after 21 years in California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. In June of 2002, Blad was sentenced to seven years to life for attempted murder.
This was Blad’s Seventh Parole Board Hearing. The Monterey County District Attorney’s office will request that Gov. Gavin Newsom reverse the panel’s decision.
From the last denied parole story: The two men stabbed the woman 12 times and slashed her throat twice before leaving her for dead on the trail in November 2000. At the trial in Monterey County Superior Court, the victim told jurors she’d pleaded for her life and tried to get away, but the two pinned her to the ground and began stabbing her on each side.
Jason Blad, P.G. Recreation Trail Attacker Granted Parole
Texas transplant fool (it’s the backwards hat) thought he could be mayor after living here 1 year. And the fools from Coast Weakly endorsed him?
“It’s kind of a shock. I knew Mayor Peake would be a tough candidate to go up against,” said Wachs, who added that he hopes there is a large enough number of younger voices coming up in the future to lead the city.
Wachs, 40, entered late in the race “for his kids,” and said previously that he wants to help build a better city for them and future generations. Wachs came to Pacific Grove in 2021 from Houston with his wife and two young children. For the past two decades, his professional career has varied from creating billboards for sports teams to serving as an art director for venture capital-backed media startups.

Councilmember members Chaps Poduri and Tina Rau are arguing in favor of approving Measure M. They believe Pacific Grove is missing out on a source of revenue when people from Pacific Grove drive to dispensaries across the Peninsula. They estimate that having a cannabis business within city limits could bring in $300,000 annually.
Tina Rau is NOT a councilmember and never should be. Taxing aquarium admissions was estimated to bring in more than twice that.
And on the no tokin’ in the Grove side
people like Kevin Hanley believe the city has a lot to lose . . . if you visit towns with the pot shops, you find a lot of blight around them.
Not seeing it. Visit Marina for local examples. Give me another reason Kevin.
