LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES
Authorities from Orange County, San Diego, the U.S. Marines and the Border Patrol spent five hours Sunday searching for a suspect in a shooting and car theft in Dana Point, snarling traffic in I-5. San Onofre State Park Rangers found 40-year old Julian St. John hiding in bushes off Basilone Road about 2:50a yesterday morning. He was booked into Orange County jail. The car and gun believed to have been used in the shooting were recovered. The victim is expected to survive. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/mar/10/attempted-murder-suspect-eluding-deputies-arrested/
Yesterday’s Amber Alert for a missing 12-year old boy from Long Beach was called off after he and his mother were located in Oceanside late yesterday afternoon. http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/76747/
Five separate fires on the same property near Murrieta Sunday afternoon are under investigation. A structure, a detached garage, an outbuilding, two cars and less than an acre of land were involved on the 34400 block of Washington Street. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/76746/
Warm, dry conditions with increasing winds tonight and tomorrow will make for dangerous wildfire conditions this week. The full forecast is coming up (below).
The master plan for Temecula Wine Country could be voted on by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors today. The plan calls for orderly development of 18k acres east of the city of Temecula and bordering Lake Skinner. If it is approved, there’s already a court challenge alleging the county is engaging in “unreasonable and invalid spot zoning” by allowing an existing 30-acre church property right in the middle of Wine Country to be exempt from the ban on churches in the community plan. Supervisor Jeff Stone is the architect of the plan which seeks to mature the area from a weekend wine-tasting venue to a vacation destination. http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/temecula/temecula-headlines-index/20140310-temecula-wine-country-plan-could-get-final-nod-tuesday.ece
The Fallbrook Public Utilities District voted yesterday to request that the Local Agency Formation Commission move forward and merge FPUD with the Rainbow Municipal Water District in spite of Rainbow’s move last week to dissolve the Joint Powers Authority the two had operated under for most of the last year. Their reasons for a fast-tracked decision from LAFCO are that Rainbow’s withdrawal becomes effective in less than a month, and the JPA proved that the expected cost savings of combining the two are actually there, with most of the $1m saved in the last year accruing to Rainbow. The sticking point was Rainbow’s disagreement over how board members would be elected in the newly combined district. http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/76752/
The Carlsbad city council named a new city manager on Friday. Steven Sarkozy will take over the city’s top job April 14th with an annual salary of $260k. Sarkozy was chosen out of 42 applicants mainly due to experience. He’s spent the last 30 years as city manager of Bellevue, Washington and smaller cities in Minnesota and New York. Sarkozy replaces John Coates who resigned in November, a week after he was placed on leave for an undisclosed “personnel matter”. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/mar/07/carlsbad-city-manager-named-sarkozy/
Maple Street Plaza, the pedestrian promenade that opened a year and a half ago in downtown Escondido may soon completely become the exclusive domain of pedestrians. The city is hosting a forum on March 18 to get public opinion on whether to close the southern half of the plaza to vehicle traffic. While Maple from Valley Parkway to an alley has been closed to vehicles since September of 2012, city officials are considering closing the rest of it from the alley to Grand as well, though they might continue to allow delivery trucks alley access. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/mar/09/escondido-maple-plaza-closure-traffic-forum/
In the NBA – The Clippers won their 8th in a row with Blake Griffin leading the scoring last night against Phoenix. Griffin had 37 points. The Clips’ win streak is currently the longest in the NBA. But two of the three teams ahead of them in the standings have been winning too. First-place San Antonio won their last six and third-place Houston have won five. Still, the Clippers are making it close. They’re in 4th, but only by percentage points behind Houston, and just 2 ½ games out of first in the Western Conference. The Lakers are still in the cellar in the West in spite of Sunday’s win against second-place Oklahoma City. Jodie Meeks scored 42 for LA in that game. In the East, Indiana and Miami have both clinched playoff spots. The Heat beat Washington last night.
Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks are expected to finalize a deal that will bring him to New York to run their front office by the end of this week. Jackson will take over basketball operations from president and general manager Steve Mills, who is expected to remain with the organization. http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/story/_/id/10588672/phil-jackson-new-york-knicks-expected-finalize-deal-end-week
In college hoops – thanks to a 16-point rally, San Diego State narrowly escaped a second upset by New Mexico … this time at Viejas arena Saturday. A final score of 51-48 ends the Aztecs season on a win. Higher ranked Virginia and Wisconsin both lost their games Sunday. San Diego State moves into a tie for #8 with Michigan in the AP Top 25 and takes over #7 in the USA Today Coaches poll. Florida and Wichita State remain #1 and 2. Selection for this year’s NCAA Tournament is this Sunday with the first round beginning next Tuesday. http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/9258206/2014-ncaa-tournament-schedule-key-dates
In the NHL – The Ducks dropped out of first place in the NHL as they lost their 3rd straight, 3-1 to Toronto in Anaheim last night. It was former Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle’s first visit back to Honda Center since being fired by Ducks management three years ago. Carlyle led the Ducks to their only Stanley Cup title. Under him they made the playoffs five out of six seasons. He was let go in 2011 after a bad start to that season. St. Louis now pulls ahead of Anaheim by one point thanks to a five game Blues win streak. http://scores.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=400485218
The Dallas Stars’ Rich Peverly collapsed on the bench at last night’s game against the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets. He’d just come off a shift. Play was halted in the first period while Peverly was transported to a local hospital. He was conscious at the time. After an extended delay, the game was suspended with Columbus leading 1-0. The 8-season NHL veteran had a procedure in the off-season for an irregular heartbeat. He sat out a game last week because of that condition.
Over the weekend in Ohio, two high school teams competing in the state finals agreed to end their game in a tie after 7 overtimes. Officials decided it was too risky for the fatigued players to continue after having already played the equivalent of almost two and a half full games worth of hockey. St. Ignatius and Sylvania Northview go into the record books ask co-champions. http://www.aol.com/article/2014/03/10/after-seven-overtimes-high-school-hockey-game-ends-in-tie/20846736/
In Major League Baseball pre-season games – The Padres shut out the Rockies yesterday with Andrew Cashner throwing four more scoreless innings. He hasn’t allowed a run or walk so far in spring training. And he finished last season with a 16-inning shutout streak. Cashner is expected to be the Padres starting pitcher on opening day the end of this month. The Angels beat up Cleveland 8-3, and the Dodger and A’s tied 8-all. Today, the Padres get the A’s, the Dodgers will play Kansas City, and the Angels will play Seattle.
NFL free agency begins today. Don’t expect any big name signings for the Chargers.
An item is on the agenda for the San Diego City Council this week to consider hosting the U.S. Open golf tournament in 2021. Mayor Faulconer says he believes the council will be “strongly supportive” of the idea. The 2008 U.S. Open held at Torrey Pines was very successful. The president of the U.S. Golf Association says San Diego never left the USGA’s radar after then-mayor Jerry Sanders extended an invitation on the last day of the 2008 event for the tournament to return. The tournament six years ago had the second highest attendance in the 113-year history of the national championship and set merchandise sales and TV ratings records. Tiger Woods was the winner that year. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/mar/11/us-open-torrey-pines-tiger-woods/

California State legislation that does not name, but is obviously aimed at Sea World San Diego was introduced Friday in the Assembly that would ban the use of killer whales for performances or entertainment. If passed, such orcas would have to be released into the wild or kept in large outdoor pens in the ocean. Sea World was the subject of “Blackfish”, a documentary film last year that criticized the company’s treatment of orcas and their trainers. Sea World attracts 4.4m visitors annually and employs 4k people during peak summer months. The killer whale shows are the centerpiece of the park. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/mar/07/seaworld-orca-ban-legislation-prevail/

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of March:
Approaching Spring is good time to think about vehicle safety. Properly maintained vehicles are safer vehicles.
- Make sure you change your oil on a regular basis and check to see that the engine, tires, belts, hoses, mirrors, wipers, all lights and horn are all working properly.
- Wiper blades, if anything, need replacing more often in our hot, dry climate because the rubber dries out and cracks more easily. Experts recommend replacing them every 6 to 12 months
- Check tire pressures regularly … at least once a month. Tires tend to lose air over time. The proper pressure can be found in your owner’s manual or on a sticker, usually in the driver’s door jamb.
- Get under-inflated tires pumped up immediately. Your vehicle won’t handle properly with under-inflated tires and you risk a blowout from the extra heat generated by under-inflation.
- Don’t forget to check the spare. There’s nothing worse than having a flat and finding out that your spare is flat too.
- Check the tread wear of your tires by placing the edge of a penny in the grooves of a tire’s tread. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head in any of the grooves, the tire is worn out. Replace it.
- Never hesitate in replacing a worn or damaged tire. Good tires aren’t cheap, but they’re essential for your safety and that of your passengers. Tires are the only thing that connects your vehicle to the road and advanced safety features like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control can’t do their jobs without four good, matched tires.
These tips were provided by the National Safety Council, the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Pala Safety Committee.
