A preview of the May 6, 2016, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

May 6 - 11, 2016

Dear Readers,

The new city council got down to business this week, and one of the first things it decided was not to fill the council vacancy with the third place finisher in the recent election, but to open it up for members of the public to nominate themselves. Which means that, if you're interested, this could be your chance. Mary Schley has the story.

A prominent vacation rental firm in the Carmel area has abruptly shut down, frustrating quite a few people who had reservations, not to mention making them afraid their deposits have disappeared. Mary Schley has that one, too.

The desal test well in Marina that had to be shut down when it was damaged by a storm has been restarted and is showing signs of being a success. Kelly Nix has the details.

The Pebble Beach affordable housing project has its first public hearing next week. The Carmel Mission is in its second phase of renovation, this time to the courtyard. A Marina teenager has been arrested as a suspect in a series of recent car break-ins. Would you believe that a Carmel Valley 86-year-old is about to compete in back-to-back triathlons? We have a special section you'll definitely want to consult before making plans for the summer. And my editorial says that among all the losers in recent presidential primary season, the biggest is the media.

As always, I am available to respond to questions, comments or concerns, and to offer advice about how best to read our newspaper on your computer, smartphone or iPad.
