Long Wait In Lighthouse Avenue Traffic

Thank the voters of Monterey for their 82% vote for Measure S. And some slightly stupid planners.

Measure S

On Tuesday, some drivers reported being stuck in Lighthouse traffic for more than an hour. The roadwork created Monterey’s version of L.A. rush hour traffic.

The traffic was so bad neighborhood streets were jammed with cars as drivers took alternate routes, streets were blocked off and parking spots off limits- businesses feeling the pinch.

“Definite business impact. I was here all day yesterday, and I didn’t see anybody until after seven o’clock, and that’s so different for us,” added Clewis (Employee of Ooh La La).

The work is all part of Measure S, a long-term taxpayer-funded project to repair Monterey’s streets, sidewalks and storm drains.

A project is underway to divert excess water from Monterey’s El Estero Lake and add it to the city’s restricted water supply.

The landmark is located on Del Monte Avenue and is hard to miss for anyone driving into town as people paddle out on the water in duck and swan-shaped boats or picnic on the grass.

Shark Makes Movie At Lovers Point

Otters and sea lions beware. The more we welcome and protect the prey, the more hunters we will get.

Great White Shark

The video, taken on Friday, shows the shark’s dorsal fin and tail appearing out of the water as it swims between the shoreline and the nearby kelp.

Barbara Block is a marine science professor at Stanford University, located at Hopkins Marine Station. Block tells KSBW 8 this is a very common spotting this time of year.

“At this time of year, we have a variety of shark species in the Monterey Bay region, including mako, white sharks, thresher sharks and leopard sharks,” said Block.

Can Jimmy do it?

Noaa Close

It was initially scheduled to go from January 31 to March 9. At this point, there is no longer an end date.

This gives Rep. Jimmy Panetta’s (D-Carmel Valley) and the Center for Ocean Art, Science and Technology (COAST), a volunteer group of multidisciplinary experts, more time to ensure the transfer of the building is kept in the public’s interest.
