Coastal commission
unanimously approves
test well in Marina
By KELLY NIX
T
HALF MOON BAY — HE CALIFORNIA Coastal Commission
Wednesday unanimously approved a crucial test well that paves the way
for California American Water to take the first steps toward construction
of a desalination plant in North Marina.
The City of Marina rejected a permit for the test well, but coastal
commissioners overruled that decision under a provision in the Coastal
Act that gives the commission the last word on major public works projects.
The meeting in Half Moon Bay drew scores of supporters of the test
well who reminded commissioners it would only be temporary and that,
without it, Cal Am could not continue to pursue the desal plant the
Monterey Peninsula needs to comply with a state cutback order to drastically curtail pumping from the Carmel River — points that got through
to commissioners.
“This is a test only that Cal Am and a broad coalition of Monterey
County leaders are recommending,” said coastal commissioner Carole
Groom, who made the motion to approve the permit. “It’s simply a test

COUNCIL OKS $175K CONTRACT WITH SCHMITZ
By MARY SCHLEY
C
ONTRASTING SHARPLY with the lengthy and
expensive contract of former city administrator Jason
Stilwell, who was paid an annual salary of $185,325
and received tens of thousands of dollars more in
bonuses, car allowance and other pay, the agreement
between his replacement, Doug Schmitz, and the city is
a single page calling for pay of $175,000 per year
— and not much else.
“As anybody who has looked at it will note, it is
quite brief, thanks to Doug and to Don,” Mayor Jason
Burnett said at the council’s Nov. 3 meeting, referring
to Schmitz and city attorney Don Freeman. “Doug’s
goal was to keep it to one page, and he succeeded,”
(though in part by using very small font, as councilman
Ken Talmage noted).
The council approved the contract, which is retroactive to Schmitz’ start date of Oct. 6 and is open-ended,
at its meeting last week.
“There are several elements to this that are benefi-
cial to the city, and I wanted to recognize that, both in
terms of the benefits and the salary,” Burnett continued. “It will provide savings to the city and to all of us
as taxpayers, relative to our previous agreement.”
All told, the contract will cost taxpayers about
$30,000 to $40,000 per year less than Stilwell’s,
according to Burnett. In addition to the annual salary,
the agreement provides Schmitz — who came out of
retirement in order to work for the city — 80 hours of
vacation time already in the bank and the accrual of 10
hours per month, 40 hours of management leave per
fiscal year, 50 hours of sick leave in the bank and the
accrual of eight hours per month, paid holidays and
$550 per month in deferred compensation.
“Employee will not be entitled to an auto allowance;
health, dental or vision insurance coverages or cash in
lieu thereof; or a city-issued cell phone or a cell phone
stipend,” the contract states. “If employee chooses to
attend any conferences, such expenses will be at

Paid parking kiosks to
arrive on Ocean Avenue
By MARY SCHLEY
T
HE EXPERIMENT with paid parking on Ocean Avenue is set to
begin this month, with cement slabs being poured now and parking
kiosks going in the week of Nov. 17, city administrator Doug Schmitz
said Nov. 7. The Carmel City Council voted last week to have National
Parking & Valet run the pilot parking program and provide “ambassadors” who will instruct the public on how to use the kiosks.
Paid parking is part of the council’s effort to free up downtown spaces
for shoppers and encourage employees to park outside the core commercial area — and to generate some cash for the city. The 2014/2015 budget allocated $474,000 for the development and implementation of a

San Jose airman latest victim of deadly coastline
By CHRIS COUNTS
I
N THE latest of a series of drownings along the
scenic but treacherous Big Sur coast, National Guard
airman Khiem Nguyen died Nov. 11 after he was swept
into the sea by a wave near Garrapata State Beach.
Nguyen was found the following morning by members of the Monterey
County
Sheriff ’s
Office Dive Team. A
San Jose resident, he
was 24.
Nguyen was fishing
with three of his
friends when he was
killed. Off duty at the
time, he was assigned
to the 129th Rescue
Wing
at
Moffett
Airfield in Sunnyvale.
The incident happened at about 8:45
a.m. Tuesday. After
receiving a report that
Khiem Nguyen
Nguyen was in danger,
the United States Coast Guard responded with lifeboat
and helicopter crews. State park rangers, state lifeguards, Monterey County sheriff’s deputies and Cal
Fire personnel aided the effort, but came up empty. The
search was called off when the sun went down.
“The decision to suspend a search-and-rescue case
is one of the most difficult decisions to make,” said
Capt. Greg Stump of the U.S. Coast Guard. “I want to
extend my sincere condolences to the family, friends
and the California Air National Guard. After conducting an extensive search for seven hours with our partner
agencies, we made the challenging decision to suspend
the active search.”
The dive team began its search for Nguyen the next
morning. After two hours of free diving, the rescue
workers switched to scuba gear and located the airman’s body about 20 minutes later in 25 feet of water.
A message about Nguyen was posted Wednesday on
the 129th Rescue Wing’s website.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, and
we are doing all we can to support them during this
very difficult time,” said Col. Gregory Jones, the 129th
Rescue Wing’s commander. “We appreciate their

THE LONG-AWAITED, occasionally controversial bathrooms being built at the
south end of Carmel Beach should finally be open in early December. “They are
getting very close,” planning director Rob Mullane said he learned from building
official Joe Headley Thursday. “The structural work is done, and the target date for
completion is currently the weekend of Dec. 6 and 7.” With a total price tag somewhere north of $900,000, some, including resident Carolina Bayne, have questioned how a two-toilet facility could be so spendy. But after more than a decade
of hearings, extensive discussions with nearby property owners and multiple revisions, the city approved architect Rob Carver’s plans for the facility.

another. But there he was, outside the grocery store,
this tiny wire-haired terrier, who dropped to the
ground, belly up, the moment he saw their little boy.
Figuring he was too much to take on but too cute to
ignore, they picked him up and drove him to a local
shelter. “If you get to the point where you plan to put
him down,” they said to the staff, “please give us a
call.”
Meanwhile, the child kept asking about “his dog.”
And, just days later, they got the call. The little terrier
had been bathed, micro-chipped for identification,
vaccinated, and put up for adoption. But during his
first day on the adoption floor, he had snapped at
someone’s hand. The shelter had plans to euthanize
him at 5 p.m. that day.
“We drove to the shelter and got him,” his person
says. “And that night, when we were reading �Where
the Wild Things Are’ to our son, we looked at the
character, Max. Although he is a little boy, not a wild
thing in the story, we decided this scruffy little dog

was a lot like Max. Which is how he got his name.”
Max, whose family gives him a close cut, isn’t so
scruffy anymore, and he’s not such a wild thing,
either. Recently, on the “Feast Day of St. Francis,”
named for the patron saint of the animals, Max was
blessed in a celebration at Junipero Serra School in
Carmel. His person says he’s actually a sweetheart,
mostly a quiet little house dog, who responds gently
to affection and riles up only if he feels threatened.
Now that his family has grown to three little children, Max can always go to the nursery to find where
the wild things are.

Grant to help collect Europeans’ butts
By MARY SCHLEY
S
MOKERS ON city streets should soon
have an option for disposing cigarettes that
doesn’t involve stubbing them out on trashcan lids or throwing them on the ground,
according to a vote by the Carmel City
Council Nov. 3. And the kids who use the
Carmel Youth Center can continue enjoying
their “eco-friendly snack bar,” too.
Council members decided to allocate
$6,000 to the butt receptacles and the snack
bar. The money comes to the city from its
trash hauler, Waste Management, via a contract agreement that requires Carmel to give
the money to “nonprofit or youth organizations for recycling projects, special events
and ongoing recycling programs,” according
to the report prepared by library and community activities director Janet Bombard. She
recommended the council give $1,500 to the
youth center for its snack bar, which was
started with a similar grant in 2012, and use
$4,500 for cigarette disposal.
“The city received one recycling grant
application from the Carmel Youth Center
for this funding cycle. The application was
reviewed and approved by Joe Cadelago of
Waste Management,” she explained.
“At the Sept. 2 city council meeting, during a discussion of the impact of special
events on the city, several members of the
public brought up the need for cigarette
receptacles in the downtown area,” she continued.
Forest and beach commissioner Karen
Ferlito pointed out the damage people cause
when they have nowhere to dispose of their
cigarettes.
“We have an expense occurring unintentionally when people put their cigarettes out
on the trashcan lids,” she said, adding that
decision makers should avoid their usual tradition of undertaking a lengthy process to
design something “uniquely Carmel.”
“Get something, and if you don’t like it,
you can change it in a few years,” she urged.
“Something is better than nothing.”
Ferlito also suggested tour-bus operators
ask their passengers, many of whom are
from Europe and other parts or the world
where smoking remains a much more common habit, to use butt receptacles.
“I think they want to do the right thing,
and we are not giving them the opportunity
to do the right thing,” she said.
Restaurateur Rich Pepe said he just
returned from Italy, where he saw receptacles
in Florence that served as trashcans and cigarette disposals. “It’s one fewer thing on the
sidewalk,” he said. “But I still noticed cigarette butts on the street right by the receptacle, so it’s not a failsafe solution.”
“The influx of tourists coming to Carmel
who smoke is extraordinarily high,” councilman Ken Talmage also observed. “And as
one walks around town, there are cigarette
butts everywhere.”
He suggested finding more money for the
receptacles, to ensure there are enough in
town, but the council approved the grant
allocations as Bombard proposed.
City sand pile ready for the rain
IF AND when the city receives the deluge
its residents have been craving, the public
works department will be ready — and
superintendent Stu Ross wants to make sure
the town will be ready, too.
So, in anticipation of winter storms, he
announced this week the city is putting out
its annual sandbag pile in the area behind the
Carmel Youth Center at Fourth Avenue and
Torres Street.
The supply of sand and sacks is meant for
residents, only — not contractors.
Also, any shovels or other equipment
found there should be left there. Obviously.

ITH HARDLY a trace of the fanfare that greeted
entrepreneur Sean Parker’s multi million-dollar wedding on
the same site, the Ventana Campground reopened to the public Nov. 1 for the first time in seven years.
For now, 20 drive-in campsites are available at $50 per
night. The Ventana Inn and Spa’s general manager, Steve
Johnson, told The Pine Cone they hope to have 78 campsites
open by May 2015, including an undetermined number of
“walk-in” sites, which will rent for $35 per night.
“The campground is much better than it’s ever been
before,” said Johnson. “We’re excited about it.”
Located on 40 acres just north of the resort and shaded by
towering redwoods, the campground attracted international
attention when Parker and his wife were married there in
June 2013. It also fell under the scrutiny of the California
Coastal Commission.
In addition to expressing concern the wedding posed a
threat to a sensitive environment, the watchdog agency pointed out a violation of state law — Ventana’s previous owners
never received permission from the coastal commission to
close the campground in 2007, which they did in response to
the discovery that waste was seeping into Post Creek because
of a faulty septic system.
Maintaining the campground was a condition of approval
set by the coastal commission in 1982 when it approved a
plan by another of Ventana’s previous owners to expand the
inn’s kitchen, as well as the number of guest and employee
housing units. The condition was intended to make the property more accessible to people who couldn’t afford to stay in
the resort’s rooms. Other conditions of approval included

Ocean median lighting test delayed
DUE TO lateness in the delivery of some
of the necessary equipment, a trial period of
different lighting treatments in the Ocean
Avenue medians that was set to begin Friday
won’t start until at least Nov. 21, maybe later.
“I learned this morning that delivery of
some of the lighting equipment has been
delayed. We are now tentatively planning on
having the lighting treatments set up and
illuminated by the end of next week,” planning and building director Rob Mullane said.
“That date is not yet confirmed, but we
should have a firm handle on if that date will
be feasible by the middle of next week.”
The various lighting setups should help
determine the best way to illuminate the
medians on the city’s main street. The white
fairy lights wrapped around tree trunks and
adorning bushes there have drawn criticism
from some, but no one is supporting complete darkness in the core of commercial dis-

trict after the sun sets.
A committee developed several different
treatments to try, and Mullane said the idea
is to showcase them all at the same time for
a week to 10 days, so people can compare
and contrast them.
Their reactions and feedback will help the
city determine how best to illuminate the
medians at night year round.

Duties shift in city hall
By MARY SCHLEY
C
ITING HER strengths in budgeting
and finances, city administrator Doug
Schmitz announced this week that Sharon
Friedrichsen has moved from her post as
director of public works to city hall, where
she’ll be working with treasurer David
Sandys “to plan, construct and supervise a
comprehensive contracts-monitoring system
for the city.”
While her resume lacked roles in public
works prior to her arrival here, Friedrichsen
handled budgets, grants and contracts in several positions for Santa Barbara County from
November 2004 to August 2012, when former city administrator Jason Stilwell hired
her work for Carmel.
She also was a performance auditor in the
controller’s office for the City of San
Francisco from June 2000 to November
2004, and she holds master’s degrees in public administration and the arts, and a BA in
political science.
Schmitz said putting her in charge of
reviewing the city’s voluminous and complicated contracts, which number around 90, is
a good fit.
“Her background in her previous positions with the City and County of San
Francisco and Santa Barbara County in public finance, contract administration, developing and tracking adherence to approved performance standards, and analyzing and monitoring budgets gives us an in-house individual to undertake this task,” he said. The
assignment is open-ended so the job can be
done right, he said, describing Sandys and
Friedrichsen as “a good team to move this
effort forward.”
Schmitz said he would be making
changes of that nature when he delivered his
assessment of the city to the council last
week. He noted the internal checks and balances failed to identify contracts that were
too expensive, badly or negligently written,
and generated payments exceeding their
caps, such as the infamous contracts with IT
consultant Mark Alcock, who was supposed
to be paid no more than $128,500 but
received $382,796.29.
“The city has no centralized system to
monitor contracts including contract costs or
conditions,” he said in his Nov. 4 report. “I
will soon begin setting up a contracts-monitoring system, so everyone can easily access
information on all of the city’s contracts.
This will involve reassigning an employee to
develop and oversee this task.”
This week, he chose Friedrichsen to join
Sandys in that effort.
Replacing her on a temporary basis is
Carmel Police Cmdr. Paul Tomasi, who will
provide “a very light hand of oversight,”
Schmitz said Wednesday, since city forester
Mike Branson and public works superintendent Stu Ross are both longtime city employees accustomed to running their respective
departments.
Police Chief Mike Calhoun, who has
supervised Tomasi since the latter was hired
as a sergeant in 2008, said the interim role
would be good for Tomasi’s “personal and
professional development,” and he predicted
his commander would “do an outstanding
job.”
“This is a chance for me to work with our
public works employees and to learn more
about our public works department,” Tomasi
told The Pine Cone. “I am looking forward
to the challenge, as well as the opportunity,
to work closer with this group of city
employees.”
Schmitz also told The Pine Cone the shuffling of positions highlights the lack of depth
in the city’s workforce, which has 20 percent
of its jobs either vacant or filled by temps.
Janet Bombard, for instance, is running the
library and community services, while
Calhoun is spending half his time in city hall

PGUSD considering reorganizing elementary schools into K-2 and 3-5
By KELLY NIX
A
PROPOSAL to reconfigure Robert
Down and Forest Grove elementary schools
is receiving mixed opinions from teachers
and parents, Pacific Grove Unified School
District’s assistant superintendent said ahead
of a meeting this week to discuss the idea.
The concept involves reconfiguring the
two K-5 schools so that one school is used
for kindergarten to second grade and the
other is home to grades three through five.
Benefits of the plan, the district contends,
include better collaboration among teachers
and staff, since teachers at the same grade
level would be in the same location.
Assistant superintendent Rick Miller told
The Pine Cone Monday that the administra-
tion’s idea — which has been proposed
before — is garnering across-the-board sentiments from teachers and parents.
“The board has said several times that the
idea will not work without a consensus from
the teachers,” Miller said. “And when I discuss the idea with parents, I also get mixed
reactions.”
Parents and teachers were expected to
weigh in on the idea at a Nov. 13 PGUSD
school board meeting. It is not clear when
the plan would be implemented if it’s eventually given the OK.
“I suppose the question of when would be
decided by the board as well,” Miller said.
“The discussion at the board meeting is really just that, a discussion. No decision will be
made. They want to hear from staff and par-

ents.”
The report points to the imbalance of
class size ratios and teacher-to-student ratios
at the two elementary schools.
For instance, Forest Grove first-grade
classes may outnumber — and be bigger —
than first-grade classes at Robert Down, a
factor that requires new students at Forest
Grove to be transferred to Robert Down —
or vice versa — until the ratios are equal.
“It can adversely affect families with students in multiple grades, create temporary
class assignments, and have the potential of
shifting personnel after the year begins,”
according to the district’s report.
It’s also resulted in multi-grade combo
classrooms, which the district said there
would be little or no need for if the plan is
approved.
“By having all of the first-grade classes at
the same site, these issues are completely
mitigated, resulting in a more successful start
of the year for students,” the staff report indicates.

A
DECISION whether the restaurant at the Pacific
Grove Golf Links should be allowed to serve liquor should be
left in the hands of the state’s Department of Alcoholic
Beverage Control, the city council decided last week.
On Nov. 5, the Pacific Grove City Council decided 6-1
that the Point Pinos Grill does not need a permit from the city
to serve liquor because the city makes no distinction as to the
type of alcohol — whether it’s wine or beer or hard alcohol,
for instance — that can be served in restaurants. The grill
only needs approval from the ABC. The council also voted to
amend language in the city’s use permit for the restaurant as
it relates to alcohol.
Aqua Terra Culinary, Inc. owner Dory Ford, who operates
the grill, applied for a license from the ABC in May that
would allow the restaurant to serve liquor in addition to beer
and wine, which it’s already permitted to do. Serving hard
alcohol would increase sales and draw more patrons to the
restaurant.
The city’s police department has said serving liquor at the
grill likely would not increase service calls to the establishment. And of the six restaurants in P.G. that serve distilled
spirits, there were no arrests or alcohol-related calls for service at those places, according to the police.
However, several residents have pushed back on the idea,
contending that hard alcohol will mean noisier patrons and
more instances of drunk driving, which they say could pose
a greater risk to residents and wildlife. They also say it will
further commercialize the mostly residential area. Residents
Jim and Lee Willoughby collected 79 signatures from those
opposing the idea.
“If the ABC approves the Point Pinos Grill for a [liquor]
license, there will be three [restaurants that serve hard alcohol] within one mile of each other on or near Asilomar
Boulevard, a narrow, poorly lighted winding road in a semirural area of homes,” Lee Willoughby wrote to ABC representative Marilyn M. Lefler Wednesday. “How can the ABC
justify another [liquor] license on Asilomar Boulevard?”
Councilman Rudy Fischer told The Pine Cone this week
that the grill met all the criteria for establishments that are
allowed to serve liquor in Pacific Grove.
“I suspect [the grill wants] to be able serve alcohol for
tournaments, weddings and corporate events,” Fischer said.
“and I don’t see how we can stifle business by not allowing
them to do something they would be allowed to do in just

WELL
From page 1A
to determine if subsurface [wells] will work.”
Mayors, business leaders, residents and others told commissioners that without the well, Cal Am won’t be able to
pursue its desal plant, and that implementation of the state’s
cutback order would devastate the Peninsula’s economy.
Opponents of the test well unsuccessfully tried to convince
the commission to reject Cal Am’s permit request.
Carmel Mayor Jason Burnett said it was gratifying to get
the coastal commission’s full support, which, he said, reflects
the broad coalition behind the proposed desal plant.
“It’s an important step forward,” Burnett told The Pine
Cone Thursday. “But we all have to recognize it is just a step
in a long process, and it is, after all, a test of the feasibility of
the full [desal] project.”
Sam Teel, chair of the Monterey County Hospitality
Association, told commissioners that without a replacement
water supply, the Peninsula’s $2.4 billion tourism industry
and its 23,000 jobs are in jeopardy.
Teel also said since it’s now evident the Peninsula won’t
be able to meet the cutback order’s original deadline of Jan.
2017, making progress toward a desal plant will help convince state officials to let it slide.
“If this test well does not go through,” Teel told coastal
commissioners, “it certainly looks to them as if we are fumbling the ball.”
Carmel River Steelhead Association president Brian
LeNeve outlined the fish rescue work his group has done in
the lower Carmel River since 1974. Without the desal plant,
the fish will “have no chance,” he said.
Carmel River Watershed Conservancy president Lorin
Letendre told coastal commissioners of the third “significant
threatened species” on the Peninsula — humans — before
urging them to approve the test well.
Peninsula water leaders have had ongoing meetings with
state water board staff in Sacramento, including one last
week, in hopes they will extend the cutback deadline.
Though there were fewer opponents of the test well, they
were no less vocal. The Ag Land Trust contends Cal Am’s test
well will infringe on water rights and could cause saltwater
intrusion of its own water supply.
Marc Del Piero, an attorney who is on the Ag Land Trust’s
board of directors, said Cal Am’s well will “exploit the
groundwater basin under our farmlands.”
“We don’t think there has been adequate analysis or modeling to determine whether there will be impacts,” Ag Land
Trust attorney Bill Parkin told commissioners. [The test well

“The most outstanding fact that is not mentioned here today,” he said, “is that there is no
successful operating slant well in the world.”
[Which is also why the test well is needed.]
However, the coastal commission prefers nearshore slant wells over other methods of drawing
seawater for desal plants because they have a lesser impact on the marine environment than openocean intakes, a point also made by Stefanie
Sekich-Quinn, policy manager for Surfrider,
Jonas Minton with the Planning and
Conservation League and Susan Jordan with the
California Coastal Protection Network.
Burnett said the coastal commission’s decision
sends a message to other desal purveyors in the
state that “if you want to pursue a desal plant,
there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. If This graphic shows the type of slant test well Cal Am will install on property in

PG&E back to work on gas mains
By MARY SCHLEY
W
ITH NEW safety protocols in place,
and the city council and Public Utilities
Commission acknowledging that further
delays in the replacement of aging gas mains
would be dangerous, PG&E crews resumed
work this month, digging into several city
streets. According to a schedule released by
the utility company, they began cutting and
trenching in town late last week, and the
work is scheduled to continue through mid-
May, depending on the weather.
PG&E representatives held an open house
last month to advise residents of their plans
and the process of main replacement, including what would happen if the gas service to
their homes has to be interrupted, what to do
if they hear gas flowing or smell it, and that
landscaping and streets will be repaired.
“The company has made significant
enhancements to its safety protocols to
address public concerns and the California
Public Utility Commission’s recommenda-

tions regarding our ongoing safety work in
the city,” utility representatives said. “The
CPUC and city have thoroughly evaluated
these enhancements, and the CPUC has
approved PG&E to get back to work. PG&E
is pleased to be able to resume this important
safety work at this time.”
All non-emergency work on gas lines in
the city stopped after a gas leak caused a
house at Guadalupe and Third to explode in
March. No one was injured, but a few neighboring homes suffered damage, and police
and firefighters were not advised of any
problems until after the explosion occurred.
The accident happened when a worker cut
into a steel line without knowing it contained
a plastic insert, allowing the gas to leak
between the steel and the insert into a house,
where it accumulated until the pilot light
from an oven caused it to blow up.
As the months dragged on while PG&E
and city officials grappled with protocols,
logistics and other issues, the Safety and
Enforcement Division of the California
Public Utilities Commission grew concerned
that important safety improvements were not
being made. “In order to ensure that PG&E

can safely resume non-emergency work in
Carmel, SED is requesting that PG&E confirm that it will adopt the following updated
procedures as its internal procedures to be
followed at least in Carmel going forward,”
wrote safety enforcement deputy director
Elizaveta Malashenko in an August letter.
She asked about enhanced safety measures and work procedures to help crews confirm the information on maps and records is
accurate, high-tech equipment to detect plastic inserts, quality control to verify workers
are adhering to the enhanced safety measures, training, and plans and procedures for
coordinating with emergency responders.
On Oct. 3, she sent a letter to Mayor Jason
Burnett acknowledging the company’s
improved practices. “It is essential that
PG&E’s pipeline replacement program is
resumed, so that potentially hazardous distribution pipeline can be replaced,” she said.
“As I explained in my letter to PG&E, its
commitments are necessary for PG&E to go
forward with its replacement work in
Carmel, and should not be interpreted in any
way against SED’s ongoing investigation
into possible safety violations in the past.”

River Inn turns 80, offers $5 dinners and plenty of Big Sur history
By CHRIS COUNTS
from Carmel to Cambria, the descendants of
Big Sur’s most important homesteading family, John Pfeiffer and his daughter, Ellen
Brown, opened the resort in 1934. They
named it the Apple Pie Inn after one of
Ellen’s famous kitchen creations.
A decade later, another member of the
same family, Esther Pfeiffer Ewoldsen, and
her husband, Hans Ewoldsen, took over the
inn. Like subsequent owners, the Ewoldsens
made improvements to the resort, including
changing its name to the River Inn, paying
C
ELEBRATING ITS 80th birthday this
week, the Big Sur River Inn is offering a
turn-back-the-clock menu, with prices to
match.
The inn and its restaurant have long been
a hub of activity and commerce along
Highway 1, and they actually predate the
scenic highway by three years. While convict
crews were still busy putting the final touches on the road that would soon take motorists
tribute to the Big Sur River, which is located
just a few steps away. Gas pumps were soon
added as well.
Esther also replaced her mother as Big
Sur postmaster, moving the post office to
where the Heartbeat Gift Gallery is today.
The new name took on an added meaning
when a manmade “creek” was routed right
through the dining room. A walking bridge
passed over it. An attraction in its own right,
the creek and its bridge existed until the
early 1970s.
As the gateway to Big Sur Valley’s resort
community, the River Inn thrived for
decades. But by the time Alan Perlmutter, his
wife Nancy Sanders, and several partners
bought the resort in 1988, it had fallen on
hard times. “We had to clear five bankruptcies before we could take it over,” Perlmutter
told The Pine Cone.
The new owners were determined to
revive its fortunes. “We’ve put $2 million
into the place,” he said.
Over the past three decades, the River Inn
has reestablished itself as one of the pillars
of the Big Sur business community. It’s been
the site of weddings, memorials and countless fundraisers. On its redwood-shaded

Concours raises
record for charity
THE PEBBLE Concours d’Elegance raised $1.9 million
in charitable donations at this year’s event, a record amount
of giving in the event’s history.
“We’re proud to host an event that strives to set the bar for
excellence in the automotive world while also doing all that
it can to help people in need in our local community,” said
Pebble Beach Company CEO Bill Perocchi. “True success is
when both of these aspects come together in a substantial
way to make such an impact, and each year that is our goal.”
Since the Concours’ inception, it has raised more than $19
million. This year’s event exceeded last year’s total by
$439,000 — a 30 percent increase.
Proceeds from the Concours, donations from participants
and sponsors, and the efforts of volunteers contributed to the
year’s total.
Television personality Jay Leno also made a special guest
appearance at the event, where he offered tours of his Big
Dog Garage and raised another $78,000 for the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Monterey County.
“My respect never wavers for the heartfelt generosity of
my friends from the car collector community,” said Concours
Chair Sandra Button.
Pebble Beach Company Foundation, the primary charitable partner of the Concours and the philanthropic arm of
Pebble Beach Company, supports nearly 100 local nonprofit
youth programs and provides $100,000 in yearly college
scholarships.
The Foundation also works with the Concours to oversee
the Phil Hill Scholarships, encouraging the next generation
of automotive enthusiasts.
WATCHES
From page 9A
“West had one watch on him, and the other was retrieved
at his house,” he said, and the officers brought him back to
Monterey County Jail, where he was booked on charges of
grand theft and passing bad checks, both felonies. The watches, meanwhile, were returned to FourtanГ©.
“I’m not sure what this guy was thinking,” Tomasi said.
“He was easily tracked down and easily captured. We are glad
we were able to retrieve the property and hopefully prevent
other businesses from being victimized.”

New water director

WATER company official from Del Rey Oaks has
been chosen by the Monterey Peninsula Water Management
District board of directors to fill a spot left vacant by former
director Bill Thayer.
At its Oct. 20 meeting, directors chose Andrew Clarke to
fill the Division 2 vacancy. Clarke’s appointment was preceded by string of endorsements from local business groups and
organizations, including the Coalition of Peninsula
Businesses. Directors could have called for an election to fill
the spot. One other man applied for the seat.
Clarke is the assistant controller for the Alisal Water Co.,
which delivers water to parts of Salinas. He’s held that job
since 2005. Division 2 includes Del Rey Oaks and Sand City
and parts of Monterey and Seaside.
Clarke said his career, coupled with his involvement in
various organizations, will bring “additional resources” to the
water board, according to a letter he wrote to water district
chair Dave Potter for consideration of the position.
“I have extensive public utility regulation knowledge,
strong accounting and leadership skills and, most importantly,
a desire to learn and help my community,” he said.
Business coalition co-chairs John Narigi and Mike
Zimmerman said Clarke’s background will bring an “unparalleled level” of expertise and experience to the seven-member
water board, while Monterey County Hospitality Association
chair Sam Teel said he was impressed with Clarke’s experience in finance and knowledge of water issues and systems.
“We are also impressed with Mr. Clarke’s commitment to
our community, as evidenced by his work in many venues to
support community activities and residents,” Teel wrote.
Karen Consentino, president of the Monterey County
Association of Realtors, and Moe Ammar, president of the
Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce, also urged the board to
appoint Clarke. A second candidate for Thayer’s spot, Jay
Bartow, a retired Presbyterian Church pastor, also threw in his
hat for the position.

The past year has been tragic for several

PARKING
From page 1A
parking-management plan.
National Parking & Valet has had a contract with the city
since Jan. 1, 2005, overseeing the former paid parking in the
north lot at Sunset Center and the tour-bus parking on
Junipero Street near the Carmel Plaza. According to that contract, the city retains 68.5 percent of the revenue, but the new
agreement adopted by the council ups that to 75 percent.
The contract was pulled from the council’s consent calendar at the meeting so police Chief Mike Calhoun could provide updated revenue projections for the new Ocean Avenue
meters, which will charge for parking on both sides of the
city’s main street between Junipero and Monte Verde streets.
The program calls for five kiosks on each side of the street,
covering a total of 90 spaces.
The cost will be $2 per hour, effective from 8 a.m. to 7
p.m. daily, with a maximum stay of four hours. The kiosks
will accept credit cards, debit cards and coins. Payment can
also be made via a smartphone app called Parkmobile. Users
will have to enter their license plate numbers and the amount
of time they wish to park and, after making payment, they’ll
receive receipts showing when their paid parking expires.
They won’t have to display them on their dashboards.
Enforcement officers will carry handheld devices that
read license plate numbers and connect to a computer server
that will tell them whether a car should be ticketed.
“At the conclusion of the six-month trial program, the
city may extend the program on a month-to-month basis,”
Calhoun said in his report. “The pilot parking ambassador
program is for two months, consisting of two employees from
National Parking & Valet educating and assisting residents
and citizens operating the multi-space parking pay stations.”
According to figures provided by Calhoun, the total revenues expected during the six-month period, based on the
maximum of $22 daily for 90 parking spots over the course
of 181 days, is $304,623.
Of that, National would receive $76,156. Transaction
costs would total $45,612, with another $18,900 for the park-
ing ambassadors, and $21,320 for maintenance, consultants,
miscellaneous expenses and digital technology, bringing the
total net revenues to $142,635.
“National Parking has been a partner with us since 2005,
so we’re asking them to be a part of our parking pilot program
as well,” Calhoun told the council.
He also suggested the city might want to waive some of
the parking fees for holiday shoppers, and give parking
coupons to shop owners to provide for their customers.
“It’s a big change for the city, and we’re trying to make it
as customer-friendly as we can,” Calhoun told The Pine Cone
before the meeting.

overseeing human resources, IT and finance,
since Sue Paul, Stilwell’s second-in-command, was fired in September, and the position she held was eliminated by the city council last week.
“He [Calhoun] spends quite a bit of time
up there and down here,” Schmitz said, referring to the police department and city hall.
“He is working on some of the projects from
the police department, like parking, and he’s
working on getting some recruitments going
and helping me on some of the personnel
grievance issues, so we can get those
wrapped up. It’s a real indication of the lack
of depth.”

But they could find some relief soon. The
city is going to begin recruiting for the community services assistant job, which the
council revised last week to place more
emphasis on special events coordination and
less on secretarial duties, as well as for the
position of human resources manager.
Schmitz is also looking at outsourcing payroll and human resources, if the city receives
strong proposals from potential vendors.
In the meantime, he thanked what’s left of
the city’s workforce for making so much
effort and picking up whatever tasks and
challenges he places before them.
“For right now,” Schmitz said, “everyone
is being as versatile as they can, covering
their basic assignments and whatever is asked
of them until we can get some bodies in the
organization.”

employee expense unless directed to attend
by the city council.”
Schmitz can be reimbursed up to $500 for
moving back to Carmel from Oregon, where
he was living when Burnett contacted him to
ask whether he would be interested in helping to lead the city in Stilwell’s wake, and
will be paid back for work-related expenses,
as well.
Unlike Stilwell’s contract, it does not
include any severance or retirement contributions, or bonuses like the $5,000 Stilwell
was promised for not leaving before his contract expired, and the $8,000 in incentives
“tied to the accomplishment of the city’s key
initiatives and goals.” When Stilwell and the
city parted ways in early October, following a
tumultuous reign that saw numerous longtime employees fired or forced out, and
expensive and questionable contracts with
outside consultants signed, the council
agreed to pay him between $150,000 and
$160,000 in severance, as well as benefits for
him and his family.
“I wanted to publically thank Doug for
being willing to come out of retirement to
serve Carmel, and to do so while asking for a
lower salary than our previous city administrator, and with reduced benefits,” Burnett
said at the meeting. “Those are significant
savings and much appreciated.”
He also noted “the service and the sacrifice I know you and your wife are making,”
and the council unanimously approved the
agreement, which will continue until either
side provides 45 days’ notice to the other.

Editorial
Miracle at the
coastal commission
SOMETHING
EXTRAORDINARY happened at the meeting of the
California Coastal Commission in Half Moon Bay this week — namely, that the
commission ignored the entreaties of activists and unanimously approved a permit for the desal test well Cal Am wants to build in Marina.
Five years ago, the vote would surely have gone the other way. Desal is badly
needed by humans who live in the Monterey Peninsula, of course, and may soon
be needed by their counterparts all over the state. Our desal plant is also essential for the restoration of the habitat along the Carmel River. But desal is “development,” which means that, regardless of its importance, the coastal commission would have unthinkingly opposed it in a not-too-long-ago era.
This week, the commission overruled the City of Marina when it approved
the permit; throughout its history, the commission has mostly been in the business of doing the opposite and rejecting permits for things local governments
approved.
What’s changed? Two things:
First of all, the commission has a new executive director. Charles Lester is
proving to be much less of an unthinking zealot than his predecessor, Peter
Douglas, was.
But, where the Monterey Peninsula’s water project is concerned, an even
more important change is that Jason Burnett is mayor of Carmel.
“But, sir, your visits keep our little town going.”
Burnett has certainly had his share of troubles lately, and has been rightly criticized for his role in the Jason Stilwell mess.
But he has also played an indisputably key role in helping move our desal

plant through the permit process.
He’s been able to do this because of his Democratic Party credentials and his
strong record of protecting the environment when he worked at the EPA. No one
questions his commitment to clean air, clean water, responsible development
and the protection of endangered species.
But Burnett has also shown himself to be a committed advocate for the needs
of people — particularly, their housing and their jobs.
Without new water, this community’s economy will continue to face collapse

in the event of a serious drought or if state officials decide to enforce their infamous water cutback order. Meanwhile, just with the water shortage we have
now, job creation is stifled, badly needed affordable housing can’t be built, and
businesses are unable to expand to meet demand.
Meanwhile, the Carmel River dries up much earlier — and farther inland —
than it would if we weren’t taking so much water from it.
Burnett understands all these things. And, because of who he is, when he
says, “We need a water project,” people who would otherwise turn their backs
on the entire subject stop and pay attention, including many people at the antidevelopment end of the political spectrum.
Of course, numerous local officials and community leaders are striving to
bring our water project to fruition, just as they have for years.
But there’s a difference now, and that difference is Jason Burnett.

�Unprepared, naive’
Dear Editor,
The mayor of Carmel has given his critics
a feast of negative material as The Pine
Cone’s detailed news and persuasive editorials have discussed.
His reign, which should be forgettable,
remains toxic and financially painful.
It appears he was unprepared, ill-suited,
naive, foolish, vulnerable, and easily conned
into an experiment in bad governance conducted in a 1-square-mile laboratory.
For those employees who have been hurt,
there are legal processes. For those who
knew or should have known the obvious,
hopefully, there is realization and embarrassment of their sins, perhaps enhanced by
financial penalties. For the electorate, it
appears there will be watching and waiting
with resolve to never, never allow this level

of ineptitude to occur again.
Thanks to The Pine Cone for jobs well
done.

Stilwell �profited’
Dear Editor,
Regarding your Nov. 7 editorial about the
bitter end of the Stilwell Administration: It
was bitter for everyone except Stilwell. He
profited through raises, bonuses, crony contracts, and what not, and he’s given a golden
parachute to leave with no sullying of his
name in future references. I join your reader
Heidi Short in saying shame on the council,
and also say the entire council should resign.

�Behavior inexcusable’
Dear Editor,
Your Nov. 7 editorial was absolutely stellar. You hit the nail on the head. I’m short of
words to express how great I feel about how
and what you wrote.
Without the excellent work of The Pine
Cone, Jason Stilwell would still be raining
havoc in and on Carmel.

Is it time to recall the council? The glint of Clint
W
HEN I went to get my mail Saturday
morning, I encountered a young man standing in front of the post office handing out
copies of a leaflet that described itself in
bold print as a “Letter of Intent” to prepare
and circulate a “Petition to Recall City of
Carmel-By-The-Sea Council Members.”
The articulated grounds? “Misconduct,
malfeasance in office … cronyism, neglect
and clear incompetence,
betrayal of public trust.”
My first reaction was to
dismiss the idea of a recall out
of hand. Thinking about it,
though, it seems to me that
perhaps there was a measure
“neglect and clear incompetence” that some might say constituted a
“betrayal of public trust.” The mayor and
council members all but acknowledged as
much in last week’s concession that their
governance was less than stellar, and in their
apologies for the deficiencies in their performance. While I still consider a recall ill
advised, the thought did give me pause.
I should mention parenthetically that even
if I supported a recall, it would not include
Steve Dallas; he was only elected to the
council in April of this year and was not a
member of that legislative body during the
Stilwell/Paul witch hunt. Nor was he
involved when the idea of giving Stilwell a
contract extension and raise was trumpeted
as a brilliant means of keeping a sterling city
administrator whose “performance overall
has been excellent and impressive” —
according to Mayor Jason Burnett — and
who performed his difficult job “in such a
wonderful way” — according to councilwoman Victoria Beach. Less than 10 months
later, of course, Stilwell was shown the very
door he and Susan Paul showed to Linda
Macdonald, John Hanson, Leslie Fenton, and
Margi Perotti, among others. Recalling
Dallas would be assessing guilt by association.
Were the other four guilty of “neglect and
clear incompetence” sufficient to justify
turning them out of office? Probably not. It’s
hard to make the claim that they substantially neglected their duties. It’s more that the
level of apparent competence with which
they performed them will not earn them a
slot in any governmental hall of fame. But if
we start emptying federal, state and local
legislative bodies of those who have
In Any Case

achieved at best no more than marginal competence, the halls of government will
become quiet indeed.
We also need to be fair. We sometimes
have greater expectations of others than they
are capable of meeting. People who serve on
small-town councils usually have other jobs,
and families, that compete for their time and
attention, and few have backgrounds that
equip them to run what at its core is a complex business. They are, in a sense, amateurs
in a context in which some measure of expertise is required. We need to remember that
and judge them accordingly.
That said, this group has not distinguished itself. There is little point to be
served by recounting all of the things that
they missed, most of which they now
acknowledge. Were they guilty of “misconduct” or “malfeasance in office?” No. But
they were guilty of naivete, and on a grand
scale. They listened to Stilwell, nodding like
bobblehead dolls and accepting everything
that he and the consultants he hired told
them, questioning none of it even when others around them did. Were it not for Carolina
Bayne’s petition drive and march on city hall,
they might still be playing the choir to

ear Mr. Eastwood,
I’m glad you served as mayor of Carmel.
I did not vote for you. However, I have a
good excuse. I didn’t live here at the time.
You served only one term, but your tenure
as mayor has been a boon to me. This has
nothing whatsoever to do with politics, and
everything to do with cashing in on celebrity
cachet — yours, not mine.
First a confession. We’ve
never met. I don’t know where
you live. But occasionally I
have pointed out various
houses as being yours while
giving out-of-towners my 50cent tour of Carmel. They’re
happier thinking the house in
their snapshot belongs to Dirty Harry. I apologize. I’ll never do it again. Unless I have to.
And thanks for being nice to my wife.
Many years ago when she was single and
visiting Carmel, you accidentally bumped
into her on the sidewalk outside Em Le’s
Restaurant. You apologized. She’d just seen
the first Dirty Harry movie, but was so
stunned running in to you she blanked on
your name. Fortunately her memory recovered and she never forgot that day.
Fast forward several years! Mary and I
were in France. She did something guaranteed to make any vacation unforgettable
(other than running into you). She fell and
snapped her ankle in three places, the most
number of places it’s legal to snap an ankle in
France.
At the emergency room in Avignon, a
young doctor asked where we were from.
“California,” I said.
“Where in California?”
“Carmel,” I told him.
His eyes widened. “Cleent Eastwood is
your mayor, no?”
You’d been out of office many years but I
said, “Oui,” anyway, amazed that he’d even
heard of Carmel.
“You know Cleent Eastwood?” he asked
excitedly.
“I’m afraid not,” I admitted. He looked
crestfallen. There’s nothing worse than a fallen crest when you’re in the ER.
The next day Mary was in a hospital room
when in came the chief of surgery. He shook
my hand. “You are from Carmel in
California?” he said to me.
“Oui,” I replied.
“Your mayor is Cleent Eastwood, no?”
Wilde Times
By LARRY WILDE
“Oui,” I said. (I speak French fluently as
long as it’s “oui” and “merci”).
“You know Cleent Eastwood?”
I remembered the crestfallen doc in the
ER the night before. Not wanting to take a
chance on disappointing the guy who wielded the scalpel, I said, “I see him regularly.”
This is totally true. I have spotted you
many times shopping at Whole Foods and
Earthbound Farms. You may not remember
me, but I was the gray-haired character with
all the vegetables.
Well, from then on, Mary was on favoredpatient status in that French hospital. All the
orderlies, nurses and doctors asked about
Cleent. You may be even more popular in
France than you are in Carmel. Have you
ever considered running for mayor of
Avignon? Just a thought, in case the movie
business ever goes south.
The head of surgery, Dr. Arakalion,
installed the Eiffel Tower of metal in Mary’s
ankle himself. The day she was released
from the hospital, he stopped by to say
farewell. “Tell Cleent Eastwood I did a good
job on your ankle, no?”
So I’m telling you now — Dr. Arakalion
did a good job on my wife’s ankle, no?

Figures from Carmel Voting Precinct
The largest vote ever polled in Carmel at any election was
cast last Tuesday. Of the 403 names on the great register, 292
citizens voted. The surprise of the count was the showing
made by the Socialists. Benson, candidate for President,
received 81 votes here, or nearly thirty percent of all the
votes cast here for President. Mills, candidate for Senator,
received more votes than Patton, and Governor Johnson had
as many as both together. Rigdon, who has been elected
State Senator, ran behind Boyce in this precinct. In most of
the precincts of Monterey Peninsula, the count was completed at about 3 a.m., but Carmel’s efficient election board,
which had more votes to count than most of the others, had
final figures before 1 o’clock. The Pine Cone’s announcement of Hughes’ election was based upon telegraphic
advices received at 6 o’clock Wednesday morning. Many
journals made a similar announcement.
of fancy have been indulged in until alleged newspaper readership has little relation to the actual population.
However, there has been developed in recent years a tool
to be used by the public to gauge all manner of things, a tool
which permits the relative standing of newspapers to be
determined accurately and without doubt.
This is the type of survey perfected by Dr. Gallup of the
American Institute of Public Opinion. The uncannily correct
results shown by Dr. Gallup in his tabulation of opinions,
habits, and actions have been publicized far and wide. The

Who Reads the Pine Cone?
Publishers of newspapers in small towns are rather vague
about their circulation figures. They are inclined to dismiss
the questions of advertisers with an airy wave of the hand
and a glittering generality which indicates that everyone
reads their newspaper. This is not done with the intention of
being dishonest, but because of the competition which exists
in most small communities. If one publisher states what his
actual circulation is, it is putting too much temptation in the
path of his competitor, or his competitor’s advertising representative. Even in such a delightful community as Carmel,
where respect for the truth prevails more than in most places,
newspaper circulation figures are difficult to obtain. Flights

Will This Provoke a Controversy?
According to the discovery recently made by Herbert I.
Priestly, Curator of the Bancroft Library of the University of
California, credit for planning the settlement of Upper
California by the Spaniards is due, not to Junipero Serra,
hero of the missions, but to visitor-general Jose de Galvez.
In a volume just published, Priestly, who has done very
extensive research work in manuscripts of early California
history, gives credit for planning the missions to Galvez, and
the honor for building them to Father Serra. He says:
“Galves found that the military management by Gaspar de
Portola’s soldiers had caused the Lower California missions
to suffer, and he restored management of their affairs to
Father Junipero Serra. When Galves proposed the establishment of Missions in Upper California, the College of San
Fernando, which had charge of the California missions, was
bitterly opposed to the plan of establishing so many new
missions and at such remote distances, but Father Serra was
an enthusiastic supporter of the plan Galvez proposed.” The
work of research in California history has been promoted by
the Native Sons, who have annually appropriated $3,000 to
the State University for the maintenance of scholarships.
Gallup method is an integral part of all modern newspaper,
advertising, radio and political procedures.
For this reason, The Pine Cone feels extremely fortunate
that it was able to avail itself of the services of a person
trained in the Gallup methods for a survey of the reading
habits of the people of the Carmel area.
This survey was made by people completely independent
of The Pine Cone, by people who were told only to get the

Louise Marie Govan Wilson
Loving wife, nurturing Mother and devoted friend, passed away in her Monterey home, surrounded by her
family on Wednesday, October 29 at the age of 65 after a courageous battle with cancer for 8 years. A resident of both Monterey and Palo Alto, she was born in Montreal, Canada and raised by her loving parents
William and Marie (Vandette) Govan. She was the youngest of three children, alongside: William & John
Govan. She is survived by her beloved husband Carlyle “Lad” Landis Wilson and three children: Lindsay
Paulette Mahacek, Laura Marie Smith and Landis Trent Wilson. After attending Sacred Heart high school
in Rochester, New York Louise went on to work for Dr. James Gills an Ophthalmologist in Port Richie,
Florida. Louise loved living in Florida, everything from the “sugar” sand of Clearwater Beach to the barefoot skiing in the canals with the alligators. He inspired her to continue her career and further her education by graduating from Georgetown University as a Certified Ophthalmic Technician. On her graduation
trip traveling throughout Europe, she met her husband Lad in Madrid, Spain and together continued to
travel the world. Above all the work she had ever done, she loved being the best Mom in the world. She
considered her children her legacy. From all the family photos (every family photo was a potential
Christmas picture), to family ski trips across North America and Europe. We all cherished the family vacations, but nothing beats sleeping under the stars in our boat docked in Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe. In addition to her family, her friends meant the world to her. Her friends knew her as enthusiastic, compassionate
and always having a warm smile that would light up the room. She was the essence of a true lady who
loved her proper high tea time, luncheons with the ladies, afternoon tennis, lemon drops, milk, egg sandwiches, dancing the night away, and always trying to get her girls to be more “girly.” She once told her
daughter, “it’s nighttime, you can wear more makeup.” She loved her TV shows, don’t get in the middle
of her and Downton Abbey, trust me! Music was spiritual to her, from The Beatles to Lionel Richie. Some
of her favorite quotes: “we’re all L’s,” “actions speak louder than words,” “it’s all about give and take” and
“treat others the way you would want to be treated.” Louise will be remembered as being a giving, genuine,
benevolent yet tenacious person and always a fighter from beginning till the end.
For our Mother:
May you always walk in sunshine and God s love around you flow,
for the happiness you gave us, no one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

Stilwell’s lead.
I am prepared to assume that the subjects of this column
are innately smart enough to govern our small town, and have
a genuine desire to do so effectively. What they have lacked,
it seems to me, is a healthy dollop of skepticism or cynicism.
People do not always tell the truth. People sometimes serve
their own agendas while pretending not to. People sometimes
mislead. To survive in a position of governance, one must
keep those dirty little realities in mind. One must question
the motives of others, and question their words as well. I wish
it were otherwise, but it’s not.
So back to the recall petition. What good would it serve?
Who would replace the present holders of the five legislative
seats? More amateurs no more equipped to do the job than
the present incumbents? I’d give the mayor and the council
members another chance to prove that they can represent us
properly. After all, I think they’re a little smarter now than
they were a couple of months ago. I even have faith that
they’ve developed a fledgling sense of skepticism. If not, we
can always recall them later.

From page 23A
But that’s not all. Speed ahead several years. Mary and I
are shopping at a market in Marbella, Spain, buying ingredients to make paella.
I was getting the seafood while she shopped for everything else, but I was having trouble communicating with the
fishmonger.
Behind me some fellow who sounded very American
says, “Can I help you? I speak Spanish.”
I turned to face a tall, silver-haired guy, ruggedly handsome, athletically built. “Where in the states are you from?”
he inquired.
“California,” I said.
“Where in California?”
“Carmel,” I said.
“Then you must know my friend, Clint Eastwood,” he
said.
“No, but I see him around town.”
“Next time, say hello from Peter Viertel.”
And so, Mr. Eastwood, “Hello from Peter Viertel.” Sorry
it took so long. Peter is no longer with us, but he made Spain
memorable for us.
As you know, Peter was an ex-pat screenwriter who grew
up in Hollywood, hung out with Hemingway and John
Huston, married Deborah Kerr and made a movie with you.
Most of this is in his autobiography, which he autographed
for us that day.
He invited us for cocktails and gave us the grand tour of
his house. His office contained five manual typewriters (he
hated electrics) and a collection of bullfighting posters (he
loved matadors).
So, Mr. Eastwood, let me wind this up by saying it’s been
a real pleasure not knowing you.
I don’t travel as much these days, but I’ve always wanted
to go on an African safari. We’ve been warned it might be a
little rough. But there are probably F.O.C.s (Friends of Clint)
in Kenya, too, so maybe we’ll give it a shot.
Your fellow octogenarian,

For violating state law when he was married, Parker agreed
to a $2.5 million settlement, with the condition the money
benefit Big Sur conservation and public access projects. Last
month, the coastal commission announced the dispersal of
$1.4 million to eight applicants.
For its role in the wedding, Ventana agreed to reopen the
campground, build the pedestrian trails, establish the parking
area and install about a dozen signs making it easy for hikers
to find the campground and the trails. One sign will be posted
along Highway 1, which will no doubt increase foot traffic
along the Coast Ridge Road, which offers sweeping views of

Though Fischer said he understands some people are
against serving alcohol due to religious beliefs or other reasons, “that is not the way to run a city.”
“To run a city means we need to collect tax revenue, and
the way to do that is allow businesses to be successful,” he
said. “I hope that those who want services realize that we
have to raise money in order to be able to provide those services.”
At the Nov. 5 meeting, a handful of residents spoke out
against serving liquor. Councilman Dan Miller, the only
council member who voted against the idea, said at an
October meeting that he believes allowing liquor to be served
at the grill will mean problems.
The city council also amended the restaurant’s 2012 use
permit to say “service of alcohol beverages is permitted, subject to the holding of an approved ABC license.”
Lee Willoughby said she’s planning to mail Lefler the petition for the agency’s consideration.

Woods chips instead of lawn
deck, some of the Monterey Bay’s finest musicians continue
to perform, carrying on a musical legacy established by Jake
Stock and the Abalone Stompers, Barefoot and the Big Sur
Natives. It’s a place where visitors drag wooden lawn chairs
down to the river on warm summer days and soak their toes
in the cool water as it ripples past on its way to the ocean. And
perhaps more than anything, it has retained an enduring connection to its past — no easy task in the 21st century.
“We look back with fondness and appreciation of the
Pfeiffers and the Ewoldsens,” Perlmutter said. “They started a
rich tradition here of fine food, excellent service and warm
hospitality. We and our dedicated staff of more than 50 continue to honor those traditions today.”

Trout on Friday. And throughout each day, Ellen’s Apple Pie
will be available for just 26 cents per slice — or 36 cents a la

Perlmutter invited locals and visitors to join the fun and
help the inn celebrate its 80th birthday. “We want to recognize
the wonderful history of our inn and thank everyone for eight
decades of support, encouragement, warmth and camaraderie,” he added.
Even as a removed party, I hope the voters replace the

�True scary facts’
Dear Editor,
On behalf of all the citizens of Pacific Grove, I want to
thank John Moore for his courage as a reluctant mayoral candidate in the recent election. John informed us of the true
scary facts about Pacific Grove’s financial crisis.
John clearly refuted the financial “facts” promoted by the
city staff and mayor with the facts. I feel it is now the duty of
the mayor of Pacific Grove an the council to stop misleading
the citizens of Pacific Grove and follow the municipal code
and the city charter.

facts and had no interest in the facts once they were collected.
The range of the survey was comprehensive. The results
are interesting. They disclose that 77 percent of the people of
the Carmel area read the Carmel Pine Cone, giving it a lead
in this territory over both the daily newspaper published in
Monterey and the second local newspaper.
In fairness to the daily paper, it should be stated that the
survey indicates that the actual subscribers to the daily slightly exceed those to The Pine Cone, The Pine Cone’s lead in
total readership coming from those who buy the paper on the
street or have other arrangements to read it without subscribing.
However, the second weekly newspaper in Carmel is
below The Pine Cone in both subscriptions and total readers.
A certain number of people, of course, read both the local
weekly newspapers.
It is interesting to note that, in response to a question as to
which they favoured, 84 percent more preferred The Pine
Cone than favoured the other local paper.
Dear Editor,
The Pacific Grove city government is destroying the lawn
at Lovers Point. They will say it’s because of the drought, but
I believe it has been done more to get a big-money grant from
Cal Am to go toward the town’s never-ending debt. The
money is coming first, before the beauty of this crown jewel
of Pacific Grove.
Let it dry out during the drought. When it rains, much will
come back. That’s nature. But to remove the sod itself and
replace it with wood chips will be an ugly and costly mistake
that guarantees no re-growth, no weddings, no artists or photographers, fewer restaurant patrons and fewer of our bigticket item, tourists. And who will pay to keep the notoriously messy wood chips neat and tidy?
And finally, should we ever get the chance to replace that
lawn, (which will be surprisingly expensive) the City of
Pacific Grove will ask for a new special tax or fee to do so.
Or will reach out for donations and volunteers. Such are
things in today’s Pacific Grove.

The Monterey County Planning Commission sent the preliminary plan for the new development, Carmel Views, to the
Carmel commission to review and prepare recommendations
prior to a meeting of the county planners for consideration of
the project.
The county group also asked the Carmel commission to
send a representative to this meeting on November 24.
Planning Director Floyd Adams will be the delegate.
The plan for Carmel Views was prepared for developer
Russell Galloway of Carmel by the firm of Sasaki, Walker
and Lackey Associates, Inc.
The 210 acres to be developed are divided into 30 clustertype areas containing 185 building sites. Lot sizes average
.66 of an acre, with one-half acre the minimum lot size.
Sixty-six acres are designated as greenbelt.
Mr. Adams was authorized yesterday to inform county
planners that Carmel commissioners were concerned about
the fact that most of the greenbelt was in canyons beyond
precipitous home sites and not visible to the public, and thus
did not serve as greenbelt or conform to the area plan.
Another concern of the commission was that the most
densely forested area of the subdivision was to be used for
homes.

C.V. flue fire causes
$200K in damage
A RENTAL home in Carmel Valley Village suffered significant damage Thursday when a fire spread from the chimney flue into the living room and through the roof, according
to Dorothy Priolo, spokeswoman for Monterey County
Regional Fire. A neighbor reported seeing flames coming
from the roof at around 12:15 p.m. Nov. 13, and firefighters
managed to keep the fire from spreading to the other rooms
in the house. Priolo said damage was estimated at around
$200,000. No one was at home at the time, and a pet dog was
safe in the yard. The Red Cross assisted the renters, who were
displaced by the fire.

uncanny ability to find

Asleep at the Wheel swings into Sunset, quartet’s star on the rise
T
HE MOST famous of all Western swing bands — and
nine-time Grammy Award winner — Asleep at the Wheel
plays at Sunset Center Saturday, Nov. 15.
In California for a brief tour that included shows in
Redding and Berkeley, Asleep at the Wheel’s two newest
members, fiddler Katie Holmes and singer/pianist Emily
Gimble, shared a few words this week with The Pine Cone.
Both women, it turns out, were introduced to music by
grandfathers who played the fiddle.
“My grandfather used to come over and bring his fiddle,”
Holmes recalled. “My brother and I started playing the fiddle. But I was really inspired to play by Emily’s grandfather.”
Gimble’s grandfather was none other than Johnny Gimble,
who is widely considered one of the greatest fiddlers in the
history of Western swing, which brings together elements of
country and jazz.
“I started playing the fiddle when I was 4 or 5,” said
Gimble, who joined Asleep at the Wheel in August. “But it
was too intimidating, so I starting to sing, and then I took up
piano so I wouldn’t be just another singer without an instru-
ment.”
Born and raised in Texas, both women fell in love with
Western swing at an early age — and naturally, became fans
of Asleep at the Wheel.
“It’s hard to grow up in Texas and not be familiar with
Asleep at the Wheel,” Holmes said. “When I heard them, I
couldn’t stand still and I wanted to play music. It’s funny now
that I’m in the band.”
Gimble’s connection with Asleep at the Wheel also dates
back to her childhood.
“My grandfather used to play with them,” explained
Gimble, who was smitten with swing from the start. “I think
people get bit by swing bug and they can’t let it go.”
Now Holmes and Gimble share the stage with lead singer
Ray Benson, who co-founded the band in 1969 — long
before either was born.
“He’s an incredible singer,” Gimble said. “He gives it all
he has every night night. He’s dedicated his whole life to
keeping swing music alive.”
The music starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $29 to $49. Sunset
Center is located at San Carlos and Ninth. Call (831) 6202048.
n Ensemble honors Escher
Inspired by the late Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, four
musicians decided to name their ensemble after him.
Featuring Adam Barnett-Hart and Aaron Boyd on violin,
Dane Johansen on cello and Pierre Lapointe on viola, The
Escher Quartet performs Friday, Nov. 14, at Sunset Center.
“They’re one of the really hot up-and-coming quartets,” said
Amy Anderson, the artistic director for Chamber Music
On A High Note

Monterey Bay, which is presenting the concert.
The program for Friday’s concert includes
Haydn’s Quartet No. 41 in D Major, Op 50, “Frog”;
Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 15 in E-flat minor, Op. 144; and
Dvorák’s Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 51.
“I love the program,” Anderson offered. “Haydn is a master of subtlety, humor and surprise. He’s the father of the
string quartet, and he’s so much fun. Shostakovich’s music is
serious, heartbreaking and beautiful. The piece they’re playing is his last quartet and it’s a magnificent piece of music.
And Dvorák’s music is always so lovely to listen to.”
In addition to performing at Sunset Center, the quartet this

P
AYING TRIBUTE to California’s extensive network of
state parks, the Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters Association
kicks off its annual Members Art Exhibition Saturday, Nov.
15, at the Carmel Visual Arts Gallery.
As the name of painting group implies, all of the pieces in
the show were painted on location at Point Lobos State
Reserve, Garrapata State Park and other
state parks in Monterey and Santa Cruz
counties. Pacific Grove artist Stan
Robbins will jury the show.
Founded in 2005, the nonprofit group
represents nearly 80 painters, including
familiar local names like Cyndra
Bradford, Christine Crozier, Cornelia
Emery, Sybil Johnson, Rolf Lygren
and more. Among its many activities, the
group offers painting excursions to scenic spots throughout the region. The
group was recently named a Champion
of the Arts by the Arts Council of
Monterey County.
“Our group has really blossomed,”

farms to curate the perfect feel.”
Sineska recently died in the home of a
friend in Big Sur, and the Champagnes are
dedicating their next popup dinner in his
name, “to honor him and the lasting imprint
he has made on Happy Girl Kitchen and the
community.”
Attendees of the Friday-night feast, which
they are calling “Dine with Abandon,” are
encouraged to dress festively, and, as usual,
the meal will be abundant with veggie-based
dishes, like cumin green beans with
Seascape cheese and crackers, pumpkin
risotto with roasted delicate squash and
black truffle, broccolini with tahini, lentil
majdra with caramelized onions and kale,
and arugula with persimmon and pomegranate.
Chef Matt Millea (possibly in disguise)
will be at work in the kitchen creating the
vegetarian fare, which will be served family
style, and guests are urged to
bring their own wine — and to
share it with others at their
tables, if they’re so inclined.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. in
the store at 173 Central Ave.
in Pacific Grove, and the cost
is $55 per person. Visit

n Holy granola
The gourmet granola and famous fruitcakes made by the
monks of the South Coast’s New Camaldoli Hermitage every
fall are on sale now for the holidays, Michael DiPietro,
spokesman for the hermitage, announced this week. The
monks at the Big Sur coastal retreat have been making fruitcakes and date cakes for decades, and recently added granola
to their repertoire. All three are available either online or in
the gift shop, which is open to the public.
Located 1,300 feet above sea level in the Santa Lucia
Mountains and more than 60 miles from the closest city, the
monastery has drawn travelers and seekers since it was founded more than a half-century ago. Due to its isolation, the community is largely independent, providing its own power,

n Eating for the arts
Three of the Monterey Peninsula’s most talented pastry
chefs convened for a popup dinner at Lilify on Lighthouse
Avenue in New Monterey last Sunday to help raise money for
the Youth Arts Collective, and their edible art drew raves from
those gathered there to indulge themselves for the benefit of
young artists.
YAC, which has a studio and gallery, hosts after-school art
and mentorship programs for high-school and college stu-
dents who learn art, job and life skills, “and gain a healthy
dose of self-esteem and gratitude along the way.”
Ben Spungin of Coastal Luxury Management, Yulanda
Santos of Sierra Mar at the Post Ranch Inn and Ron Mendoza
of Aubergine got in touch with their savory sides when they
produced a light, vegetarian dinner of parsnip and truffle
salad on a shortbread of parmesan and hazelnut; pumpkin
soup in delicata squash with pepitas, pear and sage; and
charred carrots with faro, onions and pear.
Spungin stacked boxes of various hues of chocolate, the
top two partially formed and housing a perfect white-chocolate egg. Splashes of color decorated their exteriors, which
were surrounded and adorned with Spungin’s signature painted truffles, and tasty granola-based bites topped with cream
and slices of dried pear, the featured fruit of the evening.
Santos, meanwhile, created a forest floor of smoked chocolate dusts, with a tree and leaves to match, and Mendoza fashioned lemon-crГЁme-filled white-chocolate pears that were
dusted green and nestled among mosses and leaves.
The YAC supporters were suitably impressed — and in
sugar shock — by the time they left, each carrying a small
painting of a pear created by a “YACster,” and a goodie bag
containing a “midnight snack” from each of the chefs.
The studio is also holding its annual holiday art show and
sale Friday, Nov. 14, from 5 to 9 p.m. at 472 Calle Principal
in downtown Monterey.

Case Number MP 21692
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both,
of DOMINGA T. LEDESMA.
A PETITION FOR PROBATE has
been filed by FRANK LEDESMA, JR
and MARY D. VASQUEZ in the
Superior Court of California,

be admitted to probate. The will
and any codicils are available for
examination in the file kept by the
court.
THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under
the Independent Administration of
Estates Act. (This authority will
allow the personal representative
to take many actions without
obtaining court approval. Before
taking certain very important
actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give
notice to interested persons unless
they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.)
The independent administration
authority will be granted unless an
interested person files an objection
to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not
grant the authority.
A hearing on the petition will
be held in this court as follows:
Date: January 7, 2015
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Dept.: 16
Address: Superior Court of
California, County of Monterey,
1200 Aguajito Road, Monterey, CA
93940.
If you object to the granting of
the petition, you should appear at
the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with
the court before the hearing. Your
appearance may be in person or by
your attorney.
If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent,
you must file your claim with the
court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by
the court within the later of either
(1) four months from the date of
first issuance of letters to a general
personal representative, as defined
in section 58(b) of the California
Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from
the date of mailing or personal
delivery to you of a notice under
section 9052 of the California
Probate Code. Other California
statutes and legal authority may
affect your rights as a creditor. You
may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California
law.
You may examine the file kept
by the court. If you are a person
interested in the estate, you may
file with the court a Request for
Special Notice (form DE-154) of the
filing of an inventory and appraisal
of estate assets or of any petition
or account as provided in Probate
Code section 1250. A Request for
Special Notice form is available
from the court clerk.

Bubbles & Bags to raise funds for girls’ health
By MARY SCHLEY
T
HE COMMUNITY Foundation for Monterey County
is organizing Bubbles & Bags, an afternoon of sipping on
sparkling wine and bidding on purses Saturday, Nov. 15, to
raise money for the Girls’ Health in Girls’ Hands initiative.
The event, which will include a silent auction of “new, gently loved and vintage bags,” will take place at the Beach and
Tennis Club in Pebble Beach, starting with a sneak preview
at 11 a.m.
That “First Peek Preview” — which will cost $100 per
person — will allow guests to shop at “Buy it Now” prices
until noon. During that time, they’ll have their pick of the
350 bags that were donated for the event, including purses,
satchels, clutches and handbags by Chanel, Louis Vuitton,
Coach, Judith Leiber, Valentino, Burberry, Ann Taylor, Tory
Burch, Cole Hahn, Max Mara and Yves Saint Laurent.
“Buy it Now” prices range from $10 to $5,000.
From noon to 3 p.m., the festivities will continue with a
silent auction, plus a guest appearance by “renowned purse
and accessory designer” Mary Frances of San Francisco,
courtesy of Augustina’s of Carmel. There is no admission
charge for the auction, and wine will be served throughout.
The Girls’ Health in Girls’ Hands initiative benefiting
from Bubbles & Bags “is a girl-led movement for health
empowerment and leadership for girls between 11 and 18
years old in Monterey County,” according to organizers.
It’s an initiative of the foundation’s women’s fund,
“which invests in the potential of girls and increasing economic security for women,” because when women thrive,
their families and communities thrive, too.
Bubbles & Bags is hosted by Pebble Beach Company,
and sponsored by numerous businesses and services. The
auction is being coordinated by a volunteer committee cochaired by Judie Profeta and Stephanie Harkness.
To RSVP and preregister for
bidding, visit
www.2014BubblesandBags.eventbrite.com, and for more
information, call (831) 375-9712, ext. 120.
