It was a VERY good night for Pala Rez Radio last night at the San Diego Press Club’s annual Excellence in Journalism Awards at the Jacobs Center in San Diego.   Rez Radio received five awards this year, up from three last year and one the year before.  This program, “Pala Today” won for the third consecutive year in the category of Best Radio Newscast .  “Galaxy Moonbeam Night Site”, which follows Pala Today on Wednesdays, won both 1st and 3rd place for the second consecutive year in the Feature category.  And Eric Ortega’s “Pala Life Past and Present” which follows this program on Monday at 12:30 with a repeat on Saturday morning at 7:30 won for Best Radio Talk/Interview for the Sam Reed episode.  Eric also won Best of Show in the Radio category – the top award of the night in competition with all other Radio category winners for all of San Diego County.  Congratulations Eric!  Over the three years Rez Radio has competed for SD Press Club awards, we’ve entered nine times and won all nine.

There’s a new option for voters who choose to vote-by-mail.  All this week and continuing through Monday, November 3, mail-in ballots can be dropped off at 14 different locations across the county.  Locally, that includes the Fallbrook and Vista Public Libraries during normal business hours.  The registrar’s goal is to get more mail ballots processed sooner, saving money and resources on Election Day.  Those waiting until Tuesday can drop off at a local polling place or the County Registrar’s office in Kearny Mesa.  If mailed, ballots must be received by the registrar by 8p on Tuesday.  After today, the post office cannot guarantee that.  To contact the county registrar for more information, their website is or call 858 565 5800.

The parents of Daniel Sisson are suing the Sheriff’s department and the County of San Diego, claiming cruel and unusual punishment led to the wrongful death of their son in the Vista jail.  The trial began yesterday with the family’s attorney challenging whether jail staff properly cared for the heroin-addicted Sisson.  The 21-year old had been in jail several times on drug charges.  His heroin habit and asthma were well-documented in previous jail medical records.  Emergency help failed to save him from what a testifying expert says was death due to asthma brought on by heroin withdrawal.   The county’s attorney says Sisson lied about his drug use and refused medical treatment.  The trial is expected to last through the week.

Riverside County Health officials announced yesterday they’ve been monitoring two low-risk county residents who recently returned from West Africa for any signs of Ebola infection.  The two are not health care workers and had no known contact with anyone who had the disease.  Confined to their homes, they’ve shown no sign of the disease after two weeks of monitoring.  Symptoms usually show up within 21 days of infection.  Officials point out the monitoring is precautionary and that there are currently no Ebola cases in Riverside County or anywhere in California.

It looks like we’re being spared any severe Santa Ana winds with accompanying high temperatures this October.  It was around this time in 2003 and 2007 that devastating fires burned thousands of acres and hundreds of San Diego County homes.  Conditions are bad right now after several years of drought, but the weather for at least the next week will be seasonable with some rain expected Saturday.  The full forecast is coming up (below).  Still, preparedness is everything.  You can read what is being done to prepare for aerial firefighting at the Ramona Air Attack base in an interesting feature article by J. Harry Jones in the UT San Diego.

The Caltrans website does not indicate whether or not repaving work is happening on Highway 76 in Pauma Valley today.  So, be prepared for possible delays with one-lane escorted traffic if it is.

North of Murrieta, one southbound lane of Highway 79 / Winchester Road will be closed between Abelia Street and Scott Road all day today and one lane in each direction will be closed all day tomorrow (Thursday) for pavement repairs.

Southbound 15 will have a full closure tonight from 11:45 through 5a for final cleanup of the Los Alamos overpass project.  All I-15 freeway traffic will be diverted between Cal Oaks and Murrieta Hot Springs exits.



In The World Series – It’s going the distance.  In the first real rout of the post-season, the Royals tied it up at three games apiece with a 10-0 drubbing of the Giants in Kansas City.  KC broke it loose in the second with 7 runs.  Meanwhile, their starting pitcher, 23-year old rookie Yordano Ventura allowed just three hits in 7 shutout innings.  Tonight in Kansas City will be the deciding game and history is not on San Francisco’s side.  The home team has won the last nine consecutive times the World Series has gone to a 7th game dating back to 1979.  That includes the Royals last World Series appearance in 1985 when they won game 7 over St. Louis 11-0.  The Giants have been in four World Series game 7s and lost all four.   Tonight’s pitching starts will be Jeremy Guthrie for KC and Tim Hudson for San Francisco.  Giants manager Bruce Bochy elected not to bring in their ace, Madison Bumgarner in relief last night on just two days’ rest.  That strategy could be an asset tonight.  The game starts at 5 on the Fox network.

In the NFL – tomorrow night, it’s New Orleans at Carolina.  The Chargers next game is Sunday at 10a from Miami.

In college football – #2 Florida State plays at #25 Louisville tomorrow night

Georgia running back Todd Gurley will have to sit out two more games as punishment from the NCAA for accepting more than $3k cash for autographing memorabilia.   He’s already missed two games for the Bulldogs.  The school plans to appeal the decision.  In order to be reinstated, Gurley has to repay a portion of the money to the charity of his choice and complete 40 hours of community service.

In the NHL – The LA Kings lost to the Flyers in Philadelphia last night 3-2 in overtime.  Anaheim shut out the Blackhawks in Chicago 1-0.  Just two games tonight (no distractions for the World Series).  The Kings are in Pittsburgh and the Ducks are in St. Louis tomorrow.

In the NBA – the regular season began last night on a losing note for the Lakers.  They got thumped by the visiting Houston Rockets 108-90.  Kobe Bryant was high scorer for LA with 19 points.  That was overshadowed by the Rockets’ James Hardin and his 32 points.  There are 12 games tonight including the Lakers at Phoenix in the Suns’ season opener.

In Rincon Rez League softball – week 3 on Monday night, Where My Pitches At won both their games against Aztecs and Weekend Warriors.  That puts them alone in first place with a 5 and 1 record.  Rincon beat Rez Dawgs and lost to Aztecs.  The winless Cali Reds came alive and beat both Rez Dawgs and Weekend Warriors by big margins.  Aztecs and Rincon are tied with 4 and 2 records.

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

Halloween is a fun time to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating and eat treats … for kids too.  Here are some tips to make Halloween fun and safe for trick-or-treaters.

  • No one should trick-or-treat alone.  Always walk in groups.
  • Attach reflective tape to costumes and bags, and carry a flashlight to help drivers see you.
  • If you’re walking where there’s no sidewalk, walk on the far edge of the road facing traffic.
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats.  Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
  • Never walk near lit candles or luminarias.
  • Be sure your costume is flame resistant.
  • Test makeup on a small area first.  Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

These tips provided by the U.S. Fire Administration, FEMA, 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.  Today’s (10/29) fire danger level is “high”.
