News 46 High On Devil’s Lettuce?

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.

Taking Caution Investigating Graffiti

pacific grove graffiti help

 

The Pacific Grove Police Department is looking for people who witnessed a graffiti spree Sunday night.

Residents awoke to find the several-block radius between Robert Down Elementary School and the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History covered in graffiti, with taggers hitting 12 different spots over the course of the night.

Problem: depending on the source of the expressive paintwork, arresting anyone or covering up the graffiti might be seen as a racist response to free expression. Watch your backs.

Aaron Peter Thomas

Officials say on December 7, 2017, Jane Doe arrived home to find Thomas highly intoxicated and sitting on the couch with a hammer. He was annoyed at their upstairs neighbors for being too loud, and told Doe he felt like “murdering them.”

When Doe tried to calm him down, Thomas stepped on her feet and threatened to “smash” her. He then threatened to strangle and kill their cat if it came out from under the bed. Doe, terrified, tried to leave, but Thomas took her phone, shoved her down on their bed, forbid her from leaving, and then began swinging the hammer around her head as he continued to threaten to “smash her” with it.

In Shape Gyms Fined $26,000,000

Can’t you use a prepaid credit card to open a ‘trial’ membership? Places sound as corrupt as carpet stores and furniture stores.

In Shape

Without acknowledging liability, In Shape agreed to provide $23 million in different forms of restitution to past and current members and pay a $3 million dollar penalty. The health club will also be bound by a 5-year injunction to prevent future unfair practices.

The multi-county investigation began in 2014 in response to complaints that In Shape sold “free” services without fully disclosing membership terms, refused to accept cancellation requests, issued unauthorized billing statements and pursued collections on invalid debts. The alleged violations occurred as the club expanded from 40 to 70 health clubs between 2010 and 2015.
