Lovers Point Scene Of Attempted Murder

With “several masked individuals and one person with a gun” it sounds more like someone making a rap video for Tick Tok.

On Nov. 30 at about 11:20 p.m., PG. Police say officers responded to Lovers Point to a report of a disturbance “involving several masked individuals and one person with a gun.” When they arrived, the victim was gone, but they were able to get information the suspects’ vehicles and the direction in which they fled. That led officers to make traffic stops on vehicles matching the descriptions of those that had fled the crime scene. However, because the male victim was not available to identify the people police detained, the occupants were released.

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.

The Pacific Grove City Council last week OK’d a lease with the owners of a popular beachfront business that rents bicycles, kayaks, wetsuits and other recreational equipment out of what’s dubbed “The Cave” at Lovers Point Beach. Council members voted 5-2 Aug. 5 to approve a new lease with Frank and Michelle Knight, who have sold sundries and rented recreation equipment from the city-owned building on Ocean View

Joaquin Sullivan, owner of Big Sur Adventures, which owns a company in the American Tin Cannery that rents out e-bikes, claimed his less than 3-year-old company could “significantly increase revenue” for the city.

Mayor Bill Peake and councilwoman Jenny McAdams voted against the 5-year lease, which ends July 31, 2025.

Filming begins later this month at Lovers Point, according to the city.

“As prior owners found out, it’s a big space to fill and trying to run it as a single restaurant if you don’t have winter time local followers is going to make it tough to make it,” said McCord. “Some of the people have existing businesses in Monterey County and this would be a second location but they all realize they can’t make it on summer business alone.

“Businesses are going to have to cater to location and the locals,” he added.

“We’re looking forward to putting some more energy into that community,” said Cisneros. “But the owner is looking for the right tenants.”

If Otters In Your Teacup Is Character . .

I don’t know what is.

On Tuesday, two of the students began painting on the sketch on a wall that is 18 feet long and 9 feet tall in the coffee shop overlooking Lovers Point. The design, which is meant to capture Pacific Grove’s unique character, features a giant teacup with an otter floating in it along with other regional imagery including a Cypress tree and flying monarch butterflies. It was previously drawn out on the wall by sophomores Kaysa Paulsen and Sofia Chang.

Next we will get invisible solar panels. Kind of like those glue on fire sprinklers a contractor once installed all over Monterey.

When you look out over the Monterey Bay from the outdoor patio of the Beach House at Lovers Point, you understand exactly why these are the most sought-after seats at the Pacific Grove restaurant. But managing general partner Kevin Phillips had a conundrum: How to make the 30-some patio seats usable on those foggy, drippy days for which Pacific Grove is famous.

“It turned out that there was a very elegant solution with a great side benefit,” said Phillips.

The answer was the installation of innovative solar panels above the patio — a translucent, weatherproof array that allows sunlight to filter through while also shielding patrons from the weather.
