In a statement, Riley said “The overriding commitment to public agency ownership is the key to the lowest possible cost.” Cost is a major issue for CPW, and Riley pointed out that the current plan for public ownership is, in his organization's estimate, far less expensive than alternatives which have been presented. Savings, he said, come mostly from three sources: tax exempt financing of bonds, low interest loans from state and federal programs, and grants from state and federal sources. Marina Coast Water District, the agency that will build the desalination plant, along with Monterey County Water Resources Agency and California-American Water, purveyors of the water for most of the Monterey Peninsula, have already received tentative commitments for more than $20 million in grants. The project is estimated to cost more than $300 million. Five cities, including Pacific Grove, have petitioned the PUC to “facilitate appropriate compromise” in hopes of a prompt approval. CPW says that they prefer to be “insiders in support” rather than “outsiders in opposition” and to advocate for moving the project forward. Riley pointed out that there were too many years of indecision and inaction and that the time to move forward has arrived. There will be a community forum component to the Regional Water Project, and this pleases Riley. He said he will continue to educate the public about issues Treasure Island surrounding the project. There will be public hearings, sponsored by the Public Utilities Commission, in Monterey on June 28 and 29.

The team will arrive at the Gateway Center of Monterey County, 850 Congress Avenue in Pacific Grove, at 12 p.m. for lunch and a Friendship Visit. Omar Espinoza and Michael Hervey, two California residents and students at UC Berkeley, are cyclists on this event. Also on the team are Brent Freeman of Los Alamitos, student at California State Long Beach, and Troy Hoffman of Rancho Cucamonga. Journey of Hope is a program of Push America, the national philanthropy of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, which raises funds and awareness for people with disabilities. The Journey of Hope team consists of men from Pi Kappa Phi chapters across the country. The team will cycle an average of 75 miles per day, a total of 4,000 miles, beginning in Seattle (June 9) and San Francisco (June 13) and ending in Washington, D.C. on August 14. For the team, the real journey will not be on a bike, but spending time with the people for whom they are riding. The Journey of Hope team members will have spent every afternoon with people with disabilities in many different community events and activities. These men are striving for community inclusion of people with disabilities and are helping to break the barriers of society that keep people of all abilities from living life to the fullest. Push America was founded in 1977 with the hope of committing its members to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. With the combined efforts of sponsors and individual team members, this year’s Journey of Hope will raise more than $500,000 on behalf of people with disabilities. Push America and Pi Kappa Phi have raised more than $13 million to date and continue to be on the cutting edge of the disability movement.

When Moore closed up 12 years ago, Davis went out on his own. Since then, he’s carved out a solid niche. Besides Feast of Lanterns lapel pin the frequent roadside rescues and house lockouts, Davis also works with several property management companies to re-key houses, apartments and commercial spaces when people move out. He just did a re-key at In-Shape now on sale to support event Fitness, formerly Anastasia’s, up on Forest Hill. “There are other fields of locksmithing,” Davis explains. Those involve computerized, card-access locks in hotels and military bases. Davis, on the other hand, is one of few locksmiths who can work on antique locks. “Not too many people work on those. They can be extremely challenging.” There are catches to working on automobile locks. With so many varieties and different ways to go about it, no one method will do. And each year when the new models come out, there are new designs that usually require the purchase of new tools. But Davis keeps up. He gets frequent calls from rental car agencies asking for his service to their customers. Is there any real challenge for someone who seemingly can get past any lock? “Safes,” Davis replies grimly. “When they malfunction, that can really be tough.” What’s his favorite part of the job? No hesitation on that: “Helping Pacific Grove’s Feast of Lanterns celebration is not a City sponsored event but is people out. It’s very rewarding.” its multi-cultural heritage festival originally used to mark the close of the Chautauqua Assembly.

By Cameron Douglas The Pacific Grove house formerly occupied by a Hopkins Marine Lab scientist no longer exists. As if making the final decree on the house’s potential historic status, bulldozers have leveled the building at 176 Sloat Avenue and the current owners have begun construction of a new home. The family of Dr. William Sherwood, a brilliant and promising scientist, lived in the unique house that fit perfectly in the narrow lot one block up from the Hopkins Marine Station where Sherwood worked. Architect Nicholai Hetrovo designed the house in 1952 using his “modular combination bent” system of exposed supporting trusses and beams. Hetrovo and Barbara Sherwood worked together to create a home that brought in plenty of light. Sadly, Dr. Sherwood took his own life days before he was to give televised testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Under the glare of adverse publicity at the hands of Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s crusade, Sherwood likened the questioning of his associations to an assassination. “The [House] committee’s trail is strewn with blasted lives and the wreckage of youthful careers,” he wrote, shortly before poisoning himself in his lab. His wife and children moved on. Cedar Street Times featured this home and the intriguing story of Dr. William Kneedler Sherwood, in our September 1, 2009 issue. At the time, it was hoped by some that the house could be preserved for its significance as the home of Dr. Sherwood, but that was obviously not to be. Many questions remain about what Sherwood knew as a result of his inquiries into mental illness and its causes, and what the House Un-American Activities Commission might have wanted to learn from him.
