A rollover accident on Highway 76 about a mile west of Pala Casino near Bonnie Nursery just before 11 this morning had the highway closed in both directions for most of an hour. A vehicle sheared off a power pole, dropping power lines onto the roadway and across AT&T communications lines. SDG&E determined the wires are not live and removed them from the road at about 11:45. Traffic began moving as of the start of this newscast at noon still with a major backup eastbound on 76. Traffic was stopped as far back as I-15 as of 12:30. www.chp.ca.gov
A 23-year old Camp Pendleton Marine motorcyclist died yesterday afternoon at Scripps Memorial in La Jolla after being struck by a hit and run driver in a rented truck a few hours earlier in Oceanside. Brandon Bizarro was hit in the 300 block of Douglas Drive by a Nissan pickup making a U-turn in front of him. The driver was identified through records at Budget Rentals on Mission Avenue. 30-year old Ezequiel Cazares Garcia eventually returned to the scene and identified himself to investigators. He was booked into Vista jail on suspicion of felony hit and run. http://www.10news.com/news/marine-killed-in-oceanside-hit-run-driver-arrested

Two crew members on board a Riverside County Sheriff’s helicopter suffered minor injuries when that chopper crashed during training exercises yesterday at Hemet-Ryan airport. Both were able to walk away. The accident happened at about 11a during low-flying maneuvers practicing a power outage landing on the runway. It’s possible the aircraft’s rotors struck the runway, causing the crash. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/80275/
Riverside County’s “Avoid the 30” campaign to crack down on impaired driving has resulted in a total of 379 arrests county-wide in the ten days it’s been in effect. Saturation patrols and DUI checkpoints are planned all over Southern California for the Labor Day weekend. CHP says they will be conducting a checkpoint at an undisclosed location in an unincorporated part of Temecula tomorrow night. http://patch.com/california/temecula/dui-checkpoint-planning-temecula-valley-weekend#.VACznqF0yUk http://patch.com/california/temecula/rivco-arrests-now-379-ongoing-anti-dui-operation#.VAC4DqF0yUk
The state’s Clean Energy Job Creation Fund is giving the Vista Unified School District $4.77m for various projects aimed at reducing energy costs. Replacing heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and installing programmable thermostats, computer power management and LED lighting is expected to result in 2.3m kilowatt hours in energy savings. Two months ago, the Escondido Union School District became the first in San Diego County to benefit from the fund created two years ago when voters passed Proposition 39, which changed the tax code for out-of-state corporations. It’s expected to generate over a half billion dollars to fund public schools and create jobs in the construction and clean energy sector. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/27/vista-school-energy-fund/

Long-time state Assemblyman and senior advisor to former Padres owner John Moores, Steve Peace has an idea for pushing through a new stadium for the Chargers and turning over Qualcomm to San Diego State as a new gateway to the university, a few trolley stops to the east. Money for the joint-use downtown plan including a stadium for the Chargers and expansion of the convention center would come from a combination of local hotel room taxes, which would have to be approved by voters, the NFL as part of its loan program for new stadiums, naming rights for the new facilities, and $300m from the sale of the 166-acre Qualcomm Stadium site to San Diego State. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/24/peace-qualcomm-stadium-sdsu-convention-downtown/2/?#article-copy

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of August.
Half of 2.4 million calls to poison control centers yearly involve children ages 5 and under. And 9 out of 10 poisonings happen at home. Here are some simple steps you can take to prevent poisonings in your home.
- Always store pesticides and other household chemicals in a locked cabinet or garden shed away from children and pets
- Use the safest possible cleaning products. Look for the Design for the Environment (DfE) label on products.
- Re-close pesticides and other household chemical products if interrupted by phone, doorbell, etc. during application.
- Never transfer pesticides and other household chemical products to containers that could be mistaken for food or drink
- Remove children, pets, toys, bottles and pacifiers from areas where you’re about to apply pesticides inside or outside the home.
- Program the Poison Help number into your phone … 1 800 222 1222. If an accident occurs with pesticides, chemicals, medicine or household products, call Poison Help for immediate advice from a local poison expert
These tips provided by Safe Kids Worldwide, the U.S. EPA, 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 (8/29) fire danger level is “very high”.
