Netta at The Clothing Store tries on one of Carrie’s creations

heard

the

saying,

“There’s nothing quite as special as a handmade gift.” Well, grandma’s sweater may hold deep sentimental value but, you’ll actually want to wear Carrie McWithey’s hand crocheted hats and gloves in public! Carrie has been crocheting since college and found it to not only be a favored pastime but also a profitable one. For a young lady who loves to travel, doing crafts fairs and festivals across the country has been another bonus of her trade. At the suggestion of a friend, Carrie landed in Monterey County and plans on staying for a while. You may have seen her, all warm and cozy, crocheting in a local coffee shop or at Pacific Grove’s Farmers’ Market. Terry Clemens, owner of the popular women’s boutique, The Clothing Store, did and asked if she could sell her fine wears at her stylish women’s boutique.

T

he goods are made with the finest Merino wool, alpaca, and beautiful silk yarns. “Nothing itchy,” promises Carrie. She designs for both men and women. Of course, the women’s are much more fun, with whimsical flowers and lacy fringe detailing. “I am pleased to have my work sold at The Clothing Store. We share a love of colors and textures. I think my pieces work well in her boutique,” boasts Carrie, “and in Pacific Grove, you’ll want to wear my pieces year round!” Carrie McWithey is the designer and owner of Fringe—Sassy handmade hats, scarves, and gloves. Her work is available at The Clothing Store in Pacific Grove, Pacific Grove Farmer’s Market, and Sand City’s Independent Marketplace. Or spot her when ordering your morning coffee at The Works. Custom orders are available to match your outfit at The Clothing Store. You may also visit her online store at www.fringeouterwear.etsy.com.

There is a spiritual aura evident in his work. He sees the discarded, recycled, and skeletal remains he uses in his assemblage as “life fragments.” If looked upon closely, everyone can find themselves in his work. It may be a toy from your childhood, an old bottle top, or a piece of jewelry that reminds you of your mother. Once assembled, Magsalay’s works are mesmerizing, holding viewers attention longer than a canvas ever could.

The 73 year old artist shows no signs of slowing down, with temporary exhibits at Monterey Peninsula Airport and the Arts Habitat of Monterey County, he continues to collect “life fragments” for his next project.

discuss CP/M is legendary in the industry. Unfortunately, Kildall’s company, Digital Research, and IBM didn’t reach an agreement and other software providers would reap the benefits of Kildall’s genius with clones of his invention. Kildall ended tragically, taking a fall in a Monterey night club in 1994, dying several days later at the age of 52 of a cerebral hemorrhage. His death was national news. So Pacific Grove is not only the site of the writing of John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts’ revolutionary approach to marine biology – it is also where the most important software code in computer history was written. These are major contributions to the world from a small Victorian town.

Pacific Grove was pivotal in the careers of novelist John Steinbeck and marine biologist Ed Ricketts, but few outside of the industry know the town was also the site of one of the most important events in computer history. In the mid 1970s, in a shed behind his home on Bayview Avenue, a man named Gary Kildall created a computer operating system called CP/M, considered by many to be the forerunner of the software systems that run the majority of the world’s personal computers today. Whatever software system powers your computer, it very likely owes much to Kildall’s CP/M (Control Program/Monitor). Steve Hauk is co-owner with his wife NanBecause of this, the new City of Pa- cy of Hauk Fine Arts in Pacific Grove, and cific Grove historic context statement a documentary film writer and playwright. points out that the little shed on Bay- He has written a play on this genius and view could be ``exceptionally impor- these important events in the computer tant’’ and someday ``eligible for state world, ``A Mild Concussion – The Rapid Rise and Long Fall of an Idealistic Comor national historic designation.’’ theKildall was a brilliant creator who puter Genius.’’ note: Grove Among the original employees (pictured) AlwaysPublisher’s In Pacific had an idealistic vision of the computer industry.

discuss CP/M is legendary in the industry. Unfortunately, Kildall’s company, Digital Research, and IBM didn’t reach an agreement and other software providers would reap the benefits of Kildall’s genius with clones of his invention. Kildall ended tragically, taking a fall in a Monterey night club in 1994, dying several days later at the age of 52 of a cerebral hemorrhage. His death was national news. So Pacific Grove is not only the site of the writing of John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts’ revolutionary approach to marine biology – it is also where the most important software code in computer history was written. These are major contributions to the world from a small Victorian town.

Pacific Grove was pivotal in the careers of novelist John Steinbeck and marine biologist Ed Ricketts, but few outside of the industry know the town was also the site of one of the most important events in computer history. In the mid 1970s, in a shed behind his home on Bayview Avenue, a man named Gary Kildall created a computer operating system called CP/M, considered by many to be the forerunner of the software systems that run the majority of the world’s personal computers today. Whatever software system powers your computer, it very likely owes much to Kildall’s CP/M (Control Program/Monitor).

and hands-on workshops with both assemblage art and the art of bonsai to the youth and handicapped in our community.

There is a spiritual aura evident in his work. He sees the discarded, recycled, and skeletal remains he uses in his assemblage as “life fragments.” If looked upon closely, everyone can find themselves in his work. It may be a toy from your childhood, an old bottle top, or a piece of jewelry that reminds you of your mother. Once assembled, Magsalay’s works are mesmerizing, holding viewers attention longer than a canvas ever could.

The 73 year old artist shows no signs of slowing down, with temporary exhibits at Monterey Peninsula Airport and the Arts Habitat of Monterey County, he continues to collect “life fragments” for his next project.

“The Deerest Town in the USA” You can’t jog the beach, stroll through the forest, or, for that matter, drive through town, without

spotting a coastal black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus). These natives thrive in our many open spaces and have long been common sites in our back yards. In addition to grazing on our prized roses, our deer also help keep the poison oak and other invasive flora at bay in our neighborhoods. Our resident deer are normally timid however, during the mating season (November through December) they are often more aggressive. The bucks drop their antlers from January through March and regrow them over the next few months. Fawns are usually born in May and June and, we note, the mothers are very protective. The best time and place to spot our deer is dawn or dusk in the Asilomar Beach area and at Carmelo Cemetary. Please don’t approach, touch, or feed the deer. They do very well without our interference. 60 Discover Pacific Grove

the

saying,

“There’s nothing quite as special as a handmade gift.” Well, grandma’s sweater may hold deep sentimental value but, you’ll actually want to wear Carrie McWithey’s hand crocheted hats and gloves in public! Carrie has been crocheting since college and found it to not only be a favored pastime but also a profitable one. For a young lady who loves to travel, doing crafts fairs and festivals across the country has been another bonus of her trade. At the suggestion of a friend, Carrie landed in Monterey County and plans on staying for a while. You may have seen her, all warm and cozy, crocheting in a local coffee shop or at Pacific Grove’s Farmers’ Market. Terry Clemens, owner of the popular women’s boutique, The Clothing Store, did and asked if she could sell her fine wears at her stylish women’s boutique.

T

he goods are made with the finest Merino wool, alpaca, and beautiful silk yarns. “Nothing itchy,” promises Carrie. She designs for both men and women. Of course, the women’s are much more fun, with whimsical flowers and lacy fringe detailing. “I am pleased to have my work sold at The Clothing Store. We share a love of colors and textures. I think my pieces work well in her boutique,” boasts Carrie, “and in Pacific Grove, you’ll want to wear my pieces year round!” Carrie McWithey is the designer and owner of Fringe—Sassy handmade hats, scarves, and gloves. Her work is available at The Clothing Store in Pacific Grove, Pacific Grove Farmer’s Market, and Sand City’s Independent Marketplace. Or spot her when ordering your morning coffee at The Works. Custom orders are available to match your outfit at The Clothing Store. You may also visit her online store at www.fringeouterwear.etsy.com.
