PALA TODAY – Wednesday 7/23/14  - National Hot Dog Day

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

 

LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

A brush fire broke out in Sage, about 5 miles north of Vail Lake and 5 miles southeast of Hemet this morning just before 11.  CHP closed roads in the area and were preparing for evacuation.  But crews assisted by at least three aircraft contained the blaze within two hours.  No report yet of total acreage  or any structural damage.

Traffic was jammed for 3 hours on northbound I-15 from Gopher Canyon to East Mission during last evening’s commute following a fatal hit and run accident.  A 28-year old San Diego man was splitting lanes on his Yamaha R-1 motorcycle when he was struck by a car changing lanes.  The motorcyclist went down and was hit by a box truck.  He died from his injuries.  Investigators are looking for the driver of the cream colored sedan.  It may have some damage and blue paint transfer near the front of the passenger side door.  The driver was described as a man in his 30’s.  A passenger was described as a blond-haired man with a red goatee.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Oceanside office of the CHP at 760 757 1675.  http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/Interstate-16-SR76-Deadly-Motorcycle-Hit-and-Run-268213002.html

Just two hours after members of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy finished a cleanup of trash in the area, a fire broke out on the Sandia Creek River Trail in De Luz yesterday.  Cal Fire and North County Fire sent about 15 units, along with two airplanes, one helicopter and three hand crews which kept the fire to about four acres.  Two people suffered heat-related injuries.  The cause of the 12:45p fire is under investigation. http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/79597/

A pair of armed robbers got away with $480k worth of Rolexes from Royal Maui Jewelers inside the Westfield North County mall last night.  The incident was reported at 8:20p.  No one was injured.  The robbers were described as black, both wearing hats and glasses and carrying dark bags. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/jul/22/rolexes-robbed-royal-maui-escondido/ www.10news.com

Plans to sell the apparently doomed San Luis Rey Downs golf course to a holding company called Moosa Creek LLC which would have created and managed the property as a land bank have fallen through.  But the current owners, San Luis Rey Downs LLC plan to move forward with the permitting process.  The Bonsall course has been in continuous operation since the early 1960’s, but plans to close on August 6th.  Along with North County courses Escondido Country Club and Carmel Highlands Golf Course, San Luis Rey is one of wave of golf courses that either have or are in the process of shutting down in the face of declining revenues and too many new courses developed in the last ten or twelve years.  A group of neighbors and Bonsall residents known as Save the Downs had entertained the idea of leasing the course with intention to buy and maintain it as a golf course.  But the numbers don’t pencil out.  The group, with about $18k in its coffers do plan to scrutinize the Army Corp of Engineers permitting process for the land bank idea and protest the conversion in any way possible, short of buying the property themselves.  www.utsandiego.com

Meanwhile in Escondido, a city staff report will be presented to the city council tonight showing that the proposal to build 430 homes on the former Escondido Country Club golf course would increase traffic and water use, and raise maintenance and operations costs for the city, offsetting the $639k annually the developer says would come to the city’s general fund. The city’s report is in response to developer, Stuck in the Rough LLC’s move placing a measure on the November ballot to overturn the city’s declaration of the former golf course as permanent open space.  Company owner Michael Schlesinger also has a multimillion-dollar lawsuit pending against the city claiming the council illegally took his property with its open-space declaration.  http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/jul/22/country-club-housing-report-cites-concerns/

Imagine going to a local water tank with buckets every day for years to get water for your home.  Are you picturing some third world country?  It’s been happening to 140 homes between Wildomar and Menifee for the last two years as privately held County Water Company has slowly gone out of business, failing to maintain wells and its distribution system.  Governor Brown on Monday signed into law a bill shielding Eastern Municipal and Elsinore Valley Municipal water districts from legal liabilities pending against County Water Company, allowing them to take over service for the area.  The two agencies have received $6.25m in state funding for infrastructure.  The county will seek further funding to offset any other costs under Proposition 84, the Safe-Drinking water bond measure approved in 2006. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/79602/

Tonight is preview night for the 45th annual Comic-Con International at the San Diego Convention Center.  It is sold out.  http://www.comic-con.org

 

SPORTS

In Major League Baseball – The Padres were shut out by the Cubs 6-0 yesterday in Chicago.  The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo had two home runs.  The Angels’ Mike Trout had a home run in a 4-2 loss to Baltimore at Anaheim last night.  And the Dodgers lost at Pittsbrugh 12-7.  That drops LA into second place, a game behind San Francisco.  All the same teams play each other again today.

Former Padres Chase Headley wasted no time endearing himself to New York’s unforgiving fans.  In a game that was scoreless until the 13th inning, Headley drove in the winning run with a single at the stroke of midnight in the bottom of the 14th, giving the Yankees a 2-1 win over Texas.  Headley will be a free agent after this season. http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=340722110

In the minors – The Lake Elsinore Storm lost at San Jose last night, 8-3.  San Jose took 3 out of the four games there.  The Storm have the day off today and open a home stand with the first of four games against Bakersfield tomorrow night.

The Chargers have released linebacker Larry English.  The 2009 first-round draft pick ended three of his past four seasons on injured reserve.  Outside linebacker is one position where the Chargers are deep.  Melvin Ingram, Jarrett Johnson, Dwight Freeney and second round pick Jerry Attaochu top that list.  English appeared in a total of 52 games with 9 starts with a total of 880 tackles and 11 sacks. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/jul/22/chargers-release-larry-english-nfl/

Chargers training camp begins today.  Their first open practice is tomorrow morning from 9 to 11:30.

Longtime Denver Broncos owner, 70-year old Pat Bowlen has given up control of the team as he battles Alzheimer’s disease.  Team president Joe Ellis will assume full control.  He’s been gradually taking on more and more as Bowlen took a reduced role in running the team the last couple of years. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/11251299/pat-bowlen-gives-control-denver-broncos-battles-alzheimer-disease

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

Residents of Ocotillo, concerned about the quality of their groundwater – the only source of water in the desert area, have been documenting leaks of hydraulic fluid on over 40% of the wind turbines at the Ocotillo Wind Express farm.  East County Magazine reported yesterday that a Summary of Violations has been issued to OWE for leaks observed during a complaint investigation by a division of the California Environmental Protection Agency.  The company has been directed to remove the contamination and to handle it as hazardous waste. http://www.eastcountymagazine.org/investigation-launched-hydraulic-oil-leaks-ocotillo-wind-facility

The Pala Band of Mission Indians has a number of employment opportunities including full time and part time.  For a list, go to http://www.palatribe.com/career-opportunities

The San Diego County Department of Environmental Health has issued a Boil Water Order for the Girl Scouts Whispering Oaks Program Center on Pine Hills Road in Julian.  Water testing there has shown the presence of coliform bacteria.  The public water system there serves a ranger’s area, lodge, health center, three cabin areas and a restroom at a ball field. http://www.eastcountymagazine.org/boil-water-order-issued-girl-scouts-whispering-oaks-julian

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of July …

To make summer barbecues a safe and fun experience for everyone…

  • Keep children away from any area near hot coals or open flames
  • Use only enough charcoal to cover the base of the grill to a depth of two inches.
  • Store extra charcoal in a sealed container with a tight lid and keep it dry.  Wet charcoals can spontaneously combust.
  • Use only recognized charcoal starter fluid, only on cold briquettes and only as much as needed to start the coals
  • When removing ashes, make sure they are cool or use a non-flammable container like a metal bucket
  • For gas barbecues, check the cylinder and all connections for leaks using soapy water and watching for bubbles.  Try to tighten leaky connections, but don’t over-tighten
  • Never use a propane cylinder past its legal use date
  • Open the grill lid before turning on the gas or lighting
  • Always turn off the propane cylinder when finished cooking
  • Change propane cylinders in the open air, not a confined space and avoid storing gas cylinders indoors

The tips provided by the Fire Prevention & Control Board 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.  Today (7/23) is a permissible burn day in Pala.  There is a NO BURN proclamation for State Responsibility Areas including land adjacent to Pala in effect every day until further notice.
