Coronavirus Comes To P.G.

Cruise ship passengers will be quarantined at Asilomar Conference Grounds. Nothing to help a speedy recovery more than being stuck there.

Asilomar Tent Rooms

During a press conference on Tuesday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that Monterey County would house some of the evacuated passengers from the Grand Princess cruise ship that tested positive for coronavirus.

According to Monterey County District Supervisor Chris Lopez, the handful of passengers coming to the county would be quarantined at Asilomar Hotel & Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove.

Monterey County District Supervisor Mary Adams who represents that part of the county, said four to eight people are expected to be housed at the hotel. The hotel was selected because it meets all of CDC’s guidelines for quarantine.

Bike Control In P.G.

Police chief needs to get out and look at what she’s talking about. Here’s two signs telling you where Monterey ends and Pacific Grove begins. What kind of crock it this?Welcome Trail Signs

Beginning next month anyone peddling a pedicab along the Monterey portion of the Recreation Trail will need to start braking along about the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The rickshaw-like bicycles, permitted on Monterey’s portion of the trail, are now banned in Pacific Grove.

Complicating matters is that although most locals know where Monterey ends and Pacific Grove begins, there is no city limits signage, making it a challenge for visitors.

Pacific Grove Police Chief Cathy Madalone said Monday the city is in the process of making signage that will welcome Rec Trail visitors to the city.

Motorized Bicycles Get OK On Rec Trail

Helmets required? Hello?

Bicycle Crash

Pacific Grove City Council voted 5-2 to allow two common varieties of electric bikes along the nearly mile-long and highly scenic stretch Monterey Bay Recreation Trail that passes through Pacific Grove. While e-bikes will be allowed on the trail, they will be restricted to 12 MPH. There is no speed limit for bicycles on the trail, and conflicts between bike riders and pedestrians there are a daily occurrence. Nevertheless, some council members welcomed the much heavier and faster e-bikes.

Fools And Their Money At Car Week Auctions

A lot can change in the four years she had the car. Plus don’t trust the seller – get verification that the car is a “numbers matching” vehicle. I’d take a $2,500 Toyota to a mechanic to check out.

A Newport Beach woman who purchased a 1967 Porsche in Monterey for the princely sum of $200,000 alleges that the dealer misrepresented the car, and she’s filed a lawsuit to try to recoup her money. In a complaint filed Jan. 29 in Monterey County Superior Court, Linda Reeves alleges that on Aug. 17, 2015, she purchased a Porsche 911 S from Legendary Motorcars.

The only online reference to the car in question is a listing at an Aug. 13-15, 2015, Monterey auction. The listing describes it as slate gray with a red interior, and an estimated value of $285,000 to $325,000.

However, when Reeves went to sell the sports car last year, she found that the digits did not match, an indication the car was not factory original.
