    PALA TODAY – Monday, January 29, 2018

    by John Fox – The following items are part of the award-winning “Pala Today” newscast heard this day at noon on PALA REZ RADIO™ 91.3 FM in Pala and worldwide online … click here to listen live  or call 1 712 775 5748.  Some portions of today’s newscast are only available in the live broadcast and not included in this transcript.

     

    LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

    Two people died in a Lake Elsinore house fire this morning.  It happened around 6a in the 100 block of South Massachusetts Street.  The fire was contained by about 7:30a.  Names of the victims have not been released and the cause of the fire is under investigation.  https://www.pe.com/2018/01/29/2-die-in-lake-elsinore-house-fire/

    A fire Saturday morning in Carlsbad destroyed a home in a retirement community.  It began at about 5:40a in the golf-course community of Rancho Carlsbad.  Two residents were evacuated.   One of them, a 62-year old woman went to a hospital with minor injuries.  http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/public-safety/sd-me-carlsbad-fire-20180127-story.html

    An Oceanside man was arrested for setting a fire along the 78 freeway at El Camino Real Saturday afternoon.  Multiple engines responded and quickly knocked down the flames.  39-year old Ray Kersey was found walking nearby and was positively identified by witnesses as having started the fire.  He was booked into Vista jail as the investigation continued. https://www.osidenews.com/2018/01/28/oceanside-man-arrested-setting-brush-fire-along-sr-78/

    Riverside County Sheriff’s officials on Friday severely criticized a pilot program implemented by KPMG who the county hired to study ways to optimize public safety operations and stretch resources.  The pilot program began last June at the Hemet station with changes in patrol shifts and re-prioritizing calls to incidents.  The aim was to save time and money.  According to station commander, Capt. Leonard Purvis, overtime increased by 9%, response time to critical incidents increased an average of three minutes, and all other calls’ response time increased by 58% under the KPMG trial.  Supervisors also hired KPMG to do the same study for general county government operations, increasing the contract with the Netherlands-based company to $40m.   The county board is expected to discuss the KPMG contract at its February 6 meeting.  http://myvalleynews.com/regional-news/sheriff-gives-f-to-pilot-program-intended-to-lower-costs/

    A man threatening to jump off the Nordahl Road overpass onto the 78 freeway is what caused that huge jam during the morning commute Friday.  He was spotted at about 6:30a and all eastbound lanes were closed at 6:46a as negotiators talked with him.  The activity also jammed westbound traffic.  Authorities were able to get the man off the bridge safely and reopen the freeway at about 9:30a.  https://patch.com/california/escondido/police-activity-prompts-sr-78-closure-north-county

    The Menifee city council has directed staff to ask the U.S. Postal Service to change the city’s four ZIP code default names all to Menifee.  The move came about after a petition was circulated to put the issue to a vote.  Menifee became a city in 2008, encompassing four ZIP codes that went by a variety of different names – Sun City, Menifee, Quail Valley, Romoland, and Canyon Lake.  The request would mean the post office would recognize those localities all officially as Menifee even if a letter was addressed to one of the other four.  Local Postmaster Shane Seitz told the city council that the postal service really doesn’t look at the name of the city or town anymore since ZIP codes went into use, noting that some of the four local ZIP codes overlap into multiple areas anyway.  The County Assessor’s office says it won’t affect taxes or billing either.  At least one Menifee city councilman calls it much ado about nothing.  http://myvalleynews.com/local/menifee-city-council-to-request-menifee-as-default-name-on-all-zip-codes-in-city/

     

    SPORTS

    In the NFL – At the Pro Bowl, the AFC rallied to beat the NFC 24-23.  Tennessee’s Delanie Walker caught two touchdown passes including the game-winner in rain-soaked Orlando.  Time of possession was almost equal.  The NFC had two more first downs and half as many turnovers.  But the AFC had the points. http://www.espn.com/nfl/game?gameId=400999088

    In the NBA – The Clippers beat the Pelicans in New Orleans yesterday 112-103.  The Lakers lost to the Raptors in Toronto, 123-111.  Other winners yesterday included the Thunder, Cavaliers, Rockets and Bucks.

    In College basketball – San Diego State lost at UNLV Saturday 88-78.  Cal State San Marcos beat the visitors from Sonoma State 65-58 last Thursday.

    In the NHL – It was All-Star weekend with the Pacific team beating the Central 5-2 and the Atlantic topping the Metro 7-4 in the semifinals.  The Pacific division took the All Star final 5-2 over Atlantic.  No games today.  The second half of the season resumes tomorrow.

    In the minors – The San Diego Gulls took a pair of games at Bakersfield over the weekend, 3-2 in a shootout Friday and 4-2 Saturday.

    In Major League Baseball – The Cleveland Indians will be removing controversial mascot Chief Wahoo from their uniforms next year.  An official announcement from the league is expected today.  The caricature of a Native American has been used by the franchise since 1947.  The club has been transitioning away from use of the logo in advertising and around their stadium in recent years.  https://www.pe.com/2018/01/29/cleveland-indians-removing-divisive-chief-wahoo-logo-from-jerseys-and-caps-starting-in-2019/

    In golf – Over the weekend at Torrey Pines, the big news was that Tiger Woods completed all 72 holes under par, finishing 23rd, which he’s fairly happy about in his return after back fusion surgery.  Jason Day, Ryan Palmer and Alex Noren finished those same holes in a tie for first at ten under par 278.  Day won the sudden death playoff on the sixth hole after Palmer was eliminated on the first.  The birdie putt on the 18th first thing this morning was witnesses by almost no one.  The playoff was called after the fifth hole yesterday on account of darkness.  Officials were unable to arrange for security this morning, so the grandstand was off limits to the public.  http://www.espn.com/golf/story/_/id/22254688/jason-day-beats-alex-noren-6th-playoff-hole-win-farmers-insurance-open

    LIFESTYLE / GREEN LIVING

    Over the weekend at the movies, the premier of “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” was the biggest money-earner at $23.5m, followed by “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” which had been #1 for three weeks.  It earned another $16.4m.  “Hostiles” which just this weekend went into wide release after showing on less than 20 screens since December was third with $10.2m.  The rest of the top ten were “The Greatest Showman”, “The Post”, “12 Strong”, “Den of Thieves”, “The Shape of Water”, “Paddington 2”, and the premiere of the Bollywood drama from India, “Padmaavat”.  Maze Runner was the third film in the franchise with the biggest budget and the lowest opening weekend of the three, so even its $25m was disappointing to the studio.  Audiences weren’t too disappointed.  It got a B+ from CinemaScore.  Hostiles got a B.  http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/

    It was Bruno Mars night last night at the Gramm Awards.  He took home album, record and song of the year awards as well as giving one of the better performances of the night with “Finesse”.  Host James Corden fished for laughs.  Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made an appearance in one of his skits.  Kendrick Lamar kicked off the night’s performances and was joined by The Edge and Bono from U2.  Janelle Monae gave one of the better and most political speeches of the night speaking about sexual harassment, sexual abuse and inequality in the workplace movements.  Her quote of the night, “We come in peace, but we mean business.” https://www.dailynews.com/2018/01/28/here-are-the-top-5-moments-from-the-2018-grammys-that-everyone-will-be-talking-about-monday/
