A preview of the January 26, 2018,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

Jan. 26 - Feb. 1, 2018

Dear Readers,

Among all the allegations sweeping Washington of Russian meddling in favor of President Trump and FBI scheming against him, a top-secret House memo has been getting much of attention this week, and Jimmy Panetta says he is one of the few Democrats who have read it. Kelly Nix has the story.

Only a small part of Carmel is considered a tsunami danger zone, but Tuesday's big earthquake off the coast of Alaska put the city's tsunami emergency plan into effect. Mary Schley has that one.

Golf may be about to make a comeback at Rancho CaƱada -- but not the kind of golf you're thinking. Christ Counts has the lowdown.

Four homes were approved for demolition at a single planning commission meeting -- a real rarity in this preservation-minded town. Thanks to the vigorous economy, tax collections are up, and so is the city budget. A builder has been cleared of killing several trees (he only killed one). Caltrans says it's making real progress toward getting Highway 1 open all the way to Cambria. One of the city's most visible restaurants is closing. P.G. police are asking for the public's help identifying the men who broke into a local pharmacy. We have another edition of our outstanding magazine, "Healthy Lifestyles," for you -- this time focusing on ways to help you set and achieve your health and fitness goals. And my editorial tells you who not to blame for the federal government shutdown.

As always, I invite you to send me any questions, comments or concerns about our newspaper, and to contact me if you need help making the most of it on your computer, smartphone or tablet.

Paul Miller, Publisher
