Armament For Lighthouse Sought

Never know when the killer whales may come ashore.

The society, he said, has received a $53,000 grant from a bequest of landscaping, and plans to restore some of the look and feel of the lighthouse’s grounds during World War II, when soldiers of the 54th Coast Artillery Regiment (Colored) were posted there with four 155mm guns shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

Business Slow? Re-Route The Tourists

On Tuesday, the City Council approved placing directional signs that would route motorists on Ocean View Boulevard up to Lighthouse Avenue so they could travel through “historic downtown Pacific Grove” on their way to the fabled drive.

The sign would have eastbound drivers hang a left at 17th Street, go up to Lighthouse and turn right, rather than simply go straight and follow Jewell or Pacific avenues to 17-Mile Drive.

Looks like the first plan to send them up Grand fizzled. And what happened here long ago that makes it so historic anyway?

But really. The Pebble Bound tourists are more likely to follow the shoreline to see the true beauty of P.G. What is better to see and stop to look at?
