Dan Stegink reports: For the past several weeks, we've been diving the coastline north from the Montara Beach location where Richard Moss' AAA card was found on June 29. Recently, another diver and I took advantage of relatively low tide to dive the base of an almost inaccessible cliff north of Montara Beach and south of Gray Whale Beach. During that search, a four-bolt, five-spoke wheel marked "Made in Korea" was found still bolted to a partial brake rotor and sheared-off axle. This wheel and brake rotor appear consistent with the 2001 Hyundai Tiburon that Richard Moss was believed to be driving. Another large vehicle part was found, but we could not remove it from the water.

The latest episode of Wavelength is here, and it's a doozy! The topic is the rent stabilization measure on November's ballot. I interview Thursday Roberts, chairman of FairRents4Pacifica.org; Daniel Saver, an attorney who works in East Palo Alto, where a rent stabilization measure is now a few years old; and Larry Hixson, one of 16 renters on Talbot Avenue who were recently hit with $690 rent increases.
Peabody Award-winning radio, print, and television journalist Aaron Glantz handed out Center for Investigative Reporting tote bags to Coastside United for Action members following his talk July 17 at Pacifica's Little Brown Church. Glantz traced his journalism career that has sparked more than a dozen Congressional hearings and a raft of federal legislation, and has led to criminal probes by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI, and the Federal Trade Commission. Because of his reporting, 500,000 fewer U.S. military veterans face long waits for disability compensation, while 100,000 fewer veterans are prescribed highly addictive narcotics by the government.
Big Banker says that Alex Fraser, point man on the troubled Harmony @ 1 project at Fassler & Roberts Road, also is having trouble with his other project in town, a parcel at 340 Waterford in Pacific Manor, next to the self-serve car wash. It was originally scheduled for foreclosure sale on April 26, but the sale has been postponed multiple times (18 times by the latest count), now set for July 28.
