A preview of the November 2, 2012,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

November 2 - 8, 2012

Dear Readers,

Convicted rapist Carl Bergstrom is getting ready for his new trial by trying to show that his accuser made a false claim of rape in other circumstances. Mary Schley has the details.

The deep-pocketed activist group making big money contributions to supervisorial candidate Marc Del Piero has ponied up another $37,000. Kelly Nix has that story.

A lawsuit claiming violations of the California Environmental Quality Act (what else?) has been filed over an emergency communications tower to be built in Pebble Beach. Kelly has that one, too.

Carmel businessman Rich Pepe flew to New York last Sunday just as hurricane Sandy was bearing down on the city, and he has some fascinating stories to tell about what transpired. How do community leaders think our representatives in Washington and Sacramento have been doing with their time in office? We have an extensive report. If you've seen the movie, "Argo," you know all about the dramatic rescue of six Americans from Iran in 1980, but what you don't know is that former Carmel mayor Sue McCloud played a key role. And my editorial strongly recommends a vote for Dave Potter for supervisor on Tuesday, not only because he has done a good job, but because the political integrity of Monterey County depends on it.
