Application for cell site atop Carmel Valley Library withdrawn

A controversial proposed cell site to be housed on the Carmel Valley Library is no longer being considered.

According to Karen Lynch, project manager for the city’s development services department, AT&T withdrew its application because AT&T could not achieve the frequencies necessary to provide in-building coverage for the surrounding area based on the design criteria required by the city’s code.

The proposal had included 13 antennas and 24 new remote radio units mounted inside raised cupola enclosures on the library.

Del Mar doctor faces 20 years for selling prescriptions to addicts

A Del Mar osteopath who sold painkiller prescriptions to addicts and drug dealers pleaded guilty in federal court Aug. 26 to conspiracy to unlawfully dispense and distribute oxycodone.
William Joseph Watson faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced Dec. 8, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Fred Sheppard.
The defendant — who had been indicted on 40 other counts of oxycodone distribution — pleaded guilty as jury selection was to begin in his trial.
Watson preached natural medical remedies on his website, but investigators said the doctor was writing prescriptions for hydrocodone, oxycodone and Xanax to drug dealers and addicts for up to $500 per prescription.
Watson, arrested in June 2013, was secretly recorded selling prescriptions to an undercover agent and an informant, authorities said.
