Big events a benefit to Monterey Peninsula Here we go again. Every time we have an event on the Monterey Peninsula, some ungrateful person complains that their “routine” has been disrupted! Yes, just about every store, restaurant, watering hole and accommodation is filled to the brim. Thank goodness. It only takes a moment to research the USGA and Pebble Beach Co. Foundation sites to educate one’s self. The giving is real. The charities are real. So are the 5,000 volunteers and staffers who worked tirelessly for this historic event. My employment allows me to interact with residents and visitors daily. Obnoxious and entitlement are strong characteristics. Nonetheless, I can assure you, they are not exhibited solely by tourists. These “bloated” events will continue to showcase our beautiful offerings. They will generate lasting financial impact. Hopefully, we can return the favor with a modicum of tolerance. So please, do not include this local in your rant. If you don’t like living in an area that relies on tourism, I suggest you relocate … quickly. — Christie Greenwall, Marina PG Chamber thanks Pebble Beach Co. for Open On behalf of the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce and the entire Pacific Grove business community, we wish to congratulate Mr. David Stivers, president of Pebble Beach Co. on the best U.S. Open ever. From the initial planning stages until the final clean up, Mr. Stivers and his team were the most professional group to produce such a first-class event. While it is hard to measure the positive economic impact of the event, we believe that the millions of dollars invested by golf fans from all over the world will fund much needed public services. We also appreciate the support of the Pacific Grove Unified School District and all the other nonprofit partners. Thank you Pebble Beach Co. for being such a great neighbor. We look forward to the 2027 U.S. Open and beyond. — Moe Ammar, President, Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce Glyphosate should not be sprayed in Big Sur I read that the U.S. Forest Service proposes to spray glyphosate around the vegetation in the Big Sur area. This toxic chemical is the main ingredient in Roundup, which has recently been proven in court to cause cancer in humans. The precarious nature of this substance should preclude its use around people and wildlife in Big Sur — or anywhere else for that matter. Given the movement of wind as well as animals in the wild, this poison can get into the food chain, thus potentially affecting all the creatures in the sprayed areas and beyond. This seems, at best, a truly backward suggestion. Our society is continuing to become more educated about what is safe and what is not, and glyphosate is not. For the Forest Service to recommend using this is highly questionable. — Martha Dunn, Pacific Grove Decrying use of underwater nuclear weapons Almost 25 years ago scuba divers in our area began hearing and feeling the impacts of strange, high power, low-frequency sounds while diving. We complained about these negative impacts and our Navy had to conduct a massive environmental impact report to move forward with the project. It sends sound waves across entire ocean basins looking for “threat vessels.” Recently the Russians announced they have developed a high speed (+200kph) nuclear-powered “autonomous” underwater vehicle that can carry a massive 2 megaton thermonuclear weapon close to our coastline. They plan on deploying at least 32 of these “doomsday weapons” from a few submarines soon. Our own Naval Postgraduate School has been developing and testing autonomous underwater vehicle here in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary for over 15 years. Our local congressman has supported the development and use of these devices. We humans need too cry out and put an end to this new proliferation of nuclear weapons that can sneak right up to our coastline. — Jay Murray, Carmel Valley She speaks Trumpish with forked tongue Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary sometimes known as the “Princess of Prevarication” for her unrepentant support for everything President Trump did or said, no matter how preposterous, is leaving her post at the end of the month, ostensibly to spend more time with her family.  Actually, she is recuperating from a severe case of forked tongue, a degenerative condition which can be quite painful for both speaker and listener.  Full recovery is not expected, although partial remission is possible. — Glenn Nolte, Carmel Valley

The Dark Knight of the Soul

  My wife and I have often traveled the Pacific Northwest and one time pulled into a little town lined with antique stores, old fashioned news stands and funky little restaurants catering to the meat and potato crowd–sushi, are you kidding? After nosing around the town for a few hours the following missive came to […]
