A preview of the November 9, 2012,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

November 9 - 16, 2012

Dear Readers,

We have a ton of Monterey Peninsula election news for you, including coverage of a big victory for Dave Potter over Marc Del Piero for county supervisor, an even bigger one for Carmel's sales tax increase, and a super-big win for one local councilman over an incumbent mayor. Mary Schley and Kelly Nix have those stories, and more.

An in-depth analysis of possible solutions to the local water supply crisis has been released, concluding that Cal Am's project will cost the most but be able to be built the soonest, and that no option will meet the state's water cutback order deadline. Kelly Nix also has that one.

Speaking of the water supply: We have a rather shocking story about yet another dam in Carmel Valley, Los Padres, the feds want torn down. Chris Counts has the details.

This week the city council approved a wine-tasting party for Devendorf Park next month — one the council hopes will be lead to many other similar events. A mystery helicopter that flew low over the Monterey Peninsula last weekend has been identified. And my editorial takes a look at the results of the presidential election Tuesday, and what they portend for the country and the people who backed the president.
