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.

Wild Fish Owes $126,750 In Unpaid Taxes, Is That Winning?

Parklet gadfly also got $533,000 in Covid relief government handouts. Is that Excellence in tax cheating or what?

According to the recorder’s office in Salinas, Flying Kipper Corp. faces three liens from the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration for unpaid sales taxes from Oct. l, 2022, to Dec. 31, 2023, amounting to $116,987.66 including a $25,209.86 lien that was filed with the recorder’s office Tuesday — and a lien from the Monterey County Tax Collector for $9,765.12. In all, the restaurant’s unpaid taxes amount to $126,752.78. A lien is a legal claim to property that prevents the owner from selling it without first settling the debt.

The ugly parklet blocks the view of the block. No P.G. charm here, just an expensive restaurant hiding from the tax man.

P.G. Comeheres SHOCKED That Their Cars Get Broken Into

Burglar

Tourist destinations like Pacific Grove are prime burglary targets. Criminals need a place to vacation to, and maybe catch up on some work while here. Don’t be a Bay Area fool, lock doors and windows. Don’t leave anything valuable in your car.

“We moved from the Bay Area to kind of avoid the crime and to see it kind of ticking up here is very disconcerting,” said Francie Soito who lives in Pacific Grove.

The alarming amount of car theft and break-ins is driving them to take extra safety measures, such as leaving their porch lights on.

District 3 is the airport and how appropriate, the hog farm. As a Marina homeowner, I will not vote for Bruce Degado in 2026 or Kathy Biala in 2024 which may not matter in this city but will have no respect from me.
