Move. Why buy a home under trees if you have dendrophobia?
Christie Monson and Tim Calvert know the municipal battle well. With three, 50-foot-plus cypress trees in their front yard – and worries one or more will fall onto their home, especially amid consistently stormy weather of late – the Pacific Grove couple has been wrestling with the city to have the towering conifers removed.
So far, the city has denied the pair’s request, maintaining the trees are healthy and don’t need to come out.
But Monson and Calvert aren’t convinced. Instead, they’ve started sleeping as far away from the trees as they could get, moving their bed from their front-of-house bedroom to a nook near the back.
Come-Heres Want To Remove the Grove Of P.G.
The grounds for approval, laid out at the board’s October hearing, rested on “Youthful Offender” factors, the DA’s Office said in a press release announcing Blad’s parole. On its website, the CDCR explains that the “idea of a youth offender parole hearing is based on scientific evidence showing that parts of the brain involved in behavior control continue to mature through late adolescence and that adolescent brains are not yet fully mature until a person is in his or her mid-to-late 20s.”
Sick Rec Trail Attacker’s Parole Upheld
Put a steel gate up.
On Feb. 14. at about 2:25 a.m., two men broke the front glass door of Central Avenue Pharmacy at 133 15th St. Surveillance video shows them hurling a large rock at the
door several times before breaking it, kicking in the broken glass panel, climbing in and hopping over the sales counter toward the drugs.
With firearms drawn, Pacific Grove Police officers entered the pharmacy and searched for the thieves, Gordon said, but they had already taken off. The burglars took less than $50 worth of codeine,” Gordon said. “The only thing they took is liquid codeine-type products.”
Why Is It Always Central Pharmacy?
This would not have happened if they had trusted the schlock website operators that know better.
And Moe? The same Moe that talks about his orgasms in meetings? He did not say his normal “the best thing to happen to P.G.”
“My wife was watching from home, and she was shocked,” Peake said. He added that former P.G. Chamber of Commerce president “Moe Ammar was there, and he said something to the effect of that it was ‘ugly. ‘ There was no laughing.” Peake, who said his State of the City address will be rescheduled, added that “city staff was aware” of the potential for hacking, “and if they had set up the meeting differently, this would not have happened.”
Mayor’s Zoom Meeting Gets Good As Goatse

Wachs has not lived in P.G. long enough to contribute anything of substance. And Tina Rau was an embarrassment.
Pacific Grove Mayor Bill Peake’s appointments to the city’s boards and commissions raised some eyebrows when the list was released in an agenda report for the P.G. City Council meeting taking place tonight, Jan. 18. In one case, it appears he snubbed his political opponent in the Nov. 7 election, Mike Wachs.
The chair of the DEI Task Force, Tina Rau, was also rejected in her bid to remain on the task force, in a surprising move by Peake who rejected two other members who wanted to retain their seats. He did appoint one woman, Marie Hunter, who in her application called into question DEI principles.

The parade was planned for 6 p.m. Thursday in Downtown Pacific Grove. The city did not say when and if they would reschedule the parade.
“We hope to celebrate this beloved event with you all soon.,” said the Pacific Grove Chamber.
HPOL Canceled – Somebody Must Have Been Offended
Recreation trail can be a dangerous place. Now an attacker that repeatedly stabbed a young lady there is about to be freed. Not right.
The California Board of Parole Hearings, represented by two parole commissioners, granted Jason Blad parole after 21 years in California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. In June of 2002, Blad was sentenced to seven years to life for attempted murder.
This was Blad’s Seventh Parole Board Hearing. The Monterey County District Attorney’s office will request that Gov. Gavin Newsom reverse the panel’s decision.
From the last denied parole story: The two men stabbed the woman 12 times and slashed her throat twice before leaving her for dead on the trail in November 2000. At the trial in Monterey County Superior Court, the victim told jurors she’d pleaded for her life and tried to get away, but the two pinned her to the ground and began stabbing her on each side.

Texas transplant fool (it’s the backwards hat) thought he could be mayor after living here 1 year. And the fools from Coast Weakly endorsed him?
“It’s kind of a shock. I knew Mayor Peake would be a tough candidate to go up against,” said Wachs, who added that he hopes there is a large enough number of younger voices coming up in the future to lead the city.
Wachs, 40, entered late in the race “for his kids,” and said previously that he wants to help build a better city for them and future generations. Wachs came to Pacific Grove in 2021 from Houston with his wife and two young children. For the past two decades, his professional career has varied from creating billboards for sports teams to serving as an art director for venture capital-backed media startups.
