Best wishes.

Tom Pollacci

Convicted Rapist Tom Pollacci, who served consecutive prison terms for two rape convictions before being released from Valley State Prison in June, died in his cell at Monterey County Jail last Thursday night, according to the sheriff’s office. Pollacci, 62, had been transferred straight from state prison to the county jail and was being held while the district attorney’s office tried to get him committed to a state hospital as a sexually violent predator.Monterey County Sheriff’s Cmdr. Derrel Simpson said this week that Pollacci’s death is still being investigated but appears to be a suicide.
“He had hung himself,” he continued.

Feast Of The Woke

It’s the last Saturday in July 2021 and not a hint of anything Feast Of Lanterns on the streets. They say the were not sure if there was going to be a feast so no one got a permit.

FOL 1 2021

And it would cost $2,5000 to put up banners or lanterns. But we got banners to celebrate internal combustion powered personal motor cars. How substainable can that be?

FOL 2 2021

I’d say that the people put in charge are working to cleanse the FOL of all it’s perceived racist cultural misappropriation and sterilize the celebration. No corny stories, no jewel tinted gowns. No Torii gates. No belly dancers. No showing of affection between man and woman. No dragon. No Chinese fonts. No fun. Just a lecture telling you to be ashamed using a collection of folk tales for selfish entertainment.

Stick a fork in it, the Feast Of Lanterns is done and gone forever it seems.

Dumpster Update: They Built A Covered Shed To Keep Animals Out

Saw these two back in April, same old same old. Cant teach people to close the lid to quit attracting gulls, raccoons and rats

This one I saw someone from the do-no-wrong Grove Market emptying garbage and walked away leaving it open.

And down the street at P.G. Juice N Java – yep. A gull’s buffet.

Signs Posted For Visitors

Visitors like Ben Harvey and police chief Cathy Madalone now can better understand where they are in the city they are in charge of.

Got two signs at the rec trail (where the chief said there were none)

This huge Lovers Point sign at the beach.

Another smaller sign at Otter Point

Then it gets weird. Over at Point Pinos it says Asilomar

One turnout is named Crespi Pond

Then in a weirder twist, a turn out named after a non existent fog horn.

Mvsevm Embraces Change

Big change, director is not a pervert accused of giving booze to 17 a year old girl and raping her.

Not changing is the use of the Mvsevm as a substainable re-education camp it seems.

The Mvsevm

This Friday, the museum will reopen to full capacity for the first time in 15 months, introduce its new executive director, Carla Bitter, and unveil an ambitious and permanent exhibit, “Changes in Monterey,” which is designed to “celebrate the habitats of Monterey County” and “raise awareness about human impacts on our delicate ecosystems over time,” the museum said.

Meals On Wheels

Monday through Friday for more than 35 years in Pacific Grove, in what was formerly called the Sally Griffin Center. Then came Covid. Meals continued to be delivered, but in-house dining became a pandemic casual. The facility, which reopened for classes and activities on June 21, has been renamed the Meals On Wheels Community Center.

Goes Together Like Drinking And Driving

Booze from the gas station is inconsistent with the Plan. Let’s let Safeway and Trader Joe’s sell gasoline.

The P.G. planning commission on May 13 voted 4-3 to reject a petition by Valero owner Surya Raj Shrestha to sell hard alcohol at the business at 1140 Forest Avenue. Shrestha paid $1,140.50 to city hall to appeal the decision, which the city council was expected to consider Wednesday, but instead tabled it to July 7. “It is not fair for me not to have a full liquor license for my business,” Shrestha wrote in his appeal.
