Four Way Stop Coming To Pine & Congress

The Pine Avenue work has been discussed at P.G. traffic commission and city council meetings for more than five years.
But the four-way stop will be something that drivers will have to get used to.
“We are going to have to make sure that the public now knows there is a four-way stop at Congress,” Gho said.

Good luck with that. People don’t stop on Congress where stop signs have been for decades.

Raul got 4 years in county jail. Drugs, they make you stupid.

On April 29 shortly after 1 a.m., Pacific Grove police officers checked an illegally parked vehicle on Ocean View Boulevard near the beach and searched 40-year-old Raul Tapia and 39-year-old Monica Gallegos, who was with him, pursuant to the terms of his probation. At the time, officers reported finding drugs and “a dangerous weapon.” Duffy said they found 6.1 grams of methamphetamine concealed in a hole in the driver’s seat, and located a pipe, 4.5 grams of heroin, and four bottles of Jim Beam bourbon elsewhere in Tapia’s car

Andronico’s Coming To Closed Nob Hill Store Location

Well they have a good location among the rest of the high priced businesses. Will they have cheap wine for the frequent shoplifters or Safeway offerings, Trader Joes parking with Whole Foods prices?

Nob Hill Oob

“We are excited to introduce Andronico’s Community Markets to the Monterey community,” Safeway spokeswoman Wendy Gutshall told The Pine Cone Wednesday.

Andronico’s — which is supposed to be open in the former Nob Hill spot by Thanksgiving — was a small San Francisco Bay Area chain that Frank Andronico, a native of Greece, opened in 1929 in Berkeley. While it once had nine locations,
it fell on hard times, and Safeway purchased its remaining stores, and now it plans to open one here.

Politicizing The Butterfly

Butterfly Molesting

Ahhh politics. Here’s a the work of one that looks good

Assemblymember Mark Stone — whose district includes Pacific Grove’s Monarch Sanctuary — is pushing a bill, AB 2421, to protect the iconic black and orange insects. “As monarch butterfly populations decline, ecosystems across our state are at risk of collapse,” said Stone, who introduced the bill in February. “This measure provides grants and support to preserve and restore monarch and other pollinator habitats.

Then we see what it really is. Looks like another tax and spend project.

The bill would establish the Monarch and Pollinator Rescue Program, which would be overseen by the California Wildlife Conservation Board. The program would offer grants to farmers, ranchers, nonprofits and public agencies to pay for habitat restoration projects throughout the state.
