PALA TODAY – Friday 11/14/14  - PT will not air or be published all next week, returning 11/24

The following items are part of “Pala Today” as heard this day at noon on PALA REZ RADIO™ 91.3 FM in Pala and worldwide online … click here to listen live or call 1 832 999 1123



One person was killed and three others seriously injured in a rain-slick road accident this morning east of Temecula.  Highway 79 near Pauba Road was closed for several hours beginning just before 6a.

A big rig accident at the Cajon Pass summit tied up traffic in both directions all last night.  The truck, illegally using bypass lanes in a construction zone, overturned and veered up an embankment.  Only two lanes were available in each direction all night during the cleanup.

Most local areas got just a trace of rain overnight through this morning, including Fallbrook, Escondido, Rincon, and Temecula.  Bonsall and Valley Center reported .02 hundredths of an inch, Palomar had .03 and La Jolla Reservation had .04 hundredths.  The full forecast is coming up (below).

Border Patrol agent John Richard Demery was charged yesterday with murder for the off-duty shooting of 27-year old Adam Thomas in East Hemet Saturday.  The reason for the confrontation between the two at a home adjacent to that of the defendant has not been made public.  The 40-year old agent, based at the Murrieta Border Patrol station is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the case.  He’s being held in lieu of $1m bail with his first court appearance scheduled for this afternoon.

In his UT San Diego column yesterday, Logan Jenkins takes aim at the San Diego justice system, wondering why investigators of the McStay family disappearance four years ago in Fallbrook threw up their hands and turned it over to the FBI last year.  The four bodies were found in San Bernardino County a year ago and suspect was arrested and charged with murder this month with trial set for San Bernardino – not North County where the crime allegedly occurred.  Jenkins wonders, “What do we pay these people for?”

More than a week after the elections, there is still no declared victor for one of Vista’s two available City Council seats.  Newcomer John Franklin leads incumbent David Cowles by 141 votes.  An estimated 800 to 1k provisional and mail-in ballots remain to be counted.  Franklin outspent all opponents and had the support of his former boss, Congressman Darrell Issa.  Cowles had led in early returns.

Caltrans has cancelled resurfacing work scheduled for today on Highway 76 in Pauma Valley.  No construction delays are expected.

If you’re traveling north, be advised there will be delays on the 91 in Corona this weekend.  Some lanes will be closed from midnight tonight through 9a Sunday for demolition of portions of the Main Street overpass.  Main Street will be completely closed under the freeway all weekend.  Also, the ramp from northbound 15 to the 91 will be completely shut down tonight from 10 through 6:30 tomorrow morning.



In the NFL – after trailing for 2/3rds of the game, Miami rallied to beat visiting Buffalo last night 22-9.  The broadcast went off without a hitch, in spite of one of the television production trucks having been stolen from the parking lot of the Miami Lakes Marriott hotel early Wednesday morning.  Miami-Dade police found the trailer portion late Wednesday night.  The tractor is still missing.

Among games this Sunday, the Chargers host the Raiders, the Broncos are in St. Louis, San Francisco plays the Giants in New York, the Steelers are at Tennessee, The Patriots are at Indianapolis, and Arizona hosts Detroit.

In college football – USC beat Cal Berkley last night 38-30.  A big game tomorrow for the Crimson Tide - they host #1 Mississippi State at 12:30.  #3 Florida State is at Miami.  #15 Georgia hosts #9 Auburn.  San Diego State is at Boise State on ESPN at 7p.  UCLA has a bye this week.  The Bruins host USC next Saturday.

In the NBA – The Lakers host San Antonio tonight at 7.  The Clippers host Phoenix tomorrow.

In response to the charges of battery filed against him in Las Vegas this week, Clippers forward Blake Griffin says that although he can’t comment, but that he’s very confident about the situation and once he can speak, he will.  Coach Doc Rivers said of the incident during this year’s annual preseason game at Mandalay Bay hotel, “We knew it was out there.  We didn’t know if it was going to go away or come back or get handled.”

In the NHL – The Dallas Stars shut out the Kings at Staples Center 2-0 last night.  In the rankings, right now, the defending Stanley Cup champs are mid-pack at 4th place in the Pacific Division with 20 points.  The Ducks and Canadiens are tied for the lead in the NHL at 25 points.  The Kings host the Ducks tomorrow afternoon at 1.

The Royals loss in the World Series wasn’t the only thing that sickened Kansas City fans.  Jon Costa, the food safety manager at KC’s Kauffman and Arrowhead Stadiums says poor food handling practices and dirty conditions have routinely put fans’ health at risk – even at the World Series.  The manager found cockroaches in vending areas, mouse feces on the same trays at pizza dough, sinks meant for employee hand washing blocked by boxes, mold in ice machines, too many flies, and food served at unsafe temperatures.  Costa says he went public with this information after months of being ignored by food services vendor Aramark management.  The CEO of Aramark’s response to ESPN’s report was that Costa’s photographs and descriptions are “just allegations.”

In golf – at this week’s OHL Classic in Mexico, after two rounds, Michael Putman leads by one stroke over Shawn Stefani and Jason Bohn.  Putman shot a 7-under par 64 today.

In NASCAR – The Sprint Cup will be decided this Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.  It’ll be televised at noon on ESPN.

NASCAR Chairman Brian France said today that no action will be taken against driver Kurt Busch over charges of domestic assault.  A California legislator called for Busch’s suspension until the matter has been resolved.  Both France and team owner Gene Haas say they will not consider taking Busch off the track during the ongoing investigation.

In High School prep sports:

Fallbrook – water polo CIF quarterfinals against La Jolla Country Day this afternoon at 4p – no scheduled games next week – school will be on break the week of the 24th

Valley Center – first round CIF football hosting Scripps Ranch tonight at 7 – Saturday (11/15) – cross country league finals at Guajome Park beginning at 9; CIF first round in field hockey at Valley Center at 10

Great Oak – first round CIF football at Chino Hills tonight at 7 – Saturday (11/15) – cross country CIF preliminaries at Mt. Sac; varsity baseball hosting Santiago



Somebody drop the centerboard!  Wall Street is sailing all over the place today.  Here’s the midday update from

So what’s up with the rudderless direction in stocks.  Here’s’s Larry Kofsky with Stock Talk.

Filling up your gas tank costs less than it has for years.  But, as Tracy Johnke reports, that’s a double-edged sword.

Just as holiday shopping hits high gear, word that Congress has all but killed the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act which would have created parity for sales tax collected by Internet retailers with that collected at bricks and mortar stores.  Currently, online retailers only pay state sales tax if they are physically located in that state.  Those pushing the legislation say the imbalance allows online retailers to undercut bricks and mortar stores on the same items.  The measure passed the Senate last year.  But House Majority Leader John Boehner says he will not move the measure forward in the current session of Congress.  It’s a victory for opponents including eBay – a setback for traditional stores competing with online retailers – especially those who also offer free shipping.

In today’s Take on Tech, we say we want Internet privacy, but act like we don’t.  Here’s Andrew O’Day.

How tough is it to land the American Dream – home ownership?’s Joan Donniger reports.



Judges have selected the winners for this year’s Scarecrow Days in Fallbrook.  Fallbrook Fertilizer, Feed & Farm Supply’s “Headless Horseman and Ghost of Sleepy Hollow” won Best of Show in the adult division.  The Fallbrook Garden Club’s entry, displayed outside the Garden Center Café was a close second.  The People’s Choice Award went to the Fallbrook Library for its display featuring crows.  A group of 18 students built the Best of Show youth category winner for the Boys and Girls Clubs of North County.


Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of November.

Deep frying of holiday turkeys has become more popular in recent years.  With it come some safety issues.  Thousands of turkey fryer fires are reported every year.   Remember these safety tips:

  • Set up your fryer outdoors, at least ten feet away from the house
  • Keep children and pets away from the fryer
  • Have a fire extinguisher standing by when using a turkey fryer
  • Oil must be even and steady at all times.  Set up on a flat, level surface and carefully gauge the amount of oil needed
  • Only fry a turkey that is thawed and dry.  Hot oil and water are an explosive combination.  Water in hot oil will bubble over, spilling onto the burner where the oil will catch fire.
  • Keep track of the oil temperature.  Many fryers don’t have their own temperature gauge.
  • Be careful touching the fryer, lid and handle.  They can be hot enough to cause burns.

These tips provided by the U.S. Fire Administration, PBS, and the Pala Safety Committee.


Always check with the Pala Fire Department before starting any open fires.  Call 760 742 1632 to get the day’s Cal Fire and APCD recommendations.  There is a NO BURN proclamation for State Responsibility Areas including all of Pala in effect every day until further notice.
