Chance of showers tonight … the full Memorial Weekend forecast is coming up. (below)

A second Camp Pendleton Marine has died following the crash of a helicopter on a training mission in Oahu, Hawaii.  The identity of the second Marine was not released in yesterday’s report.  A hard landing last Sunday by an MV-22 Osprey assigned to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit from Camp Pendleton initially resulted in the death of Lance Cpl. Joshua Burton of Spokane and injuries to 20 others.  Now a second Marine has died from that accident.

A crash yesterday morning before 7:30 involving several vehicles in Murrieta left one woman seriously injured and several other people with moderate injuries.  Apparently the driver of an F250 pickup experienced a medical issue as he made a left turn from Calle Del Oso Oro to southbound Washington Avenue.  That truck hit five other vehicles before coming to a stop on the wrong side of the road.

A Temecula Valley High School student was seriously injured in a fall from a stair railing at the school late yesterday morning.  First responders transported the unidentified student to a hospital with critical injuries.  Deputies were interviewing witnesses, but a Sheriff’s spokeswoman says the fall appears to have been an accident.

The Fallbrook Union Elementary School district’s motion for a retrial and judgment notwithstanding the verdict was denied last week in the wrongful termination suit of former district IT Director Elaine Allyn. In denying the motion, Vista Superior Court Judge Jacqueline Stern said the evidence supports the jury’s verdict that the Fallbrook school district wrongfully fired Allyn and retaliated against her.  The jury was unanimous in its verdict on the charge of retaliation for whistleblowing.  The school district plans to appeal.

Fallbrook High School has received a three-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  A 2 ½ day visit by a WASC committee of four educators in March checked up on the school’s progress towards goals set during the last visit.  A 21-member board of WASC commissioners reviewed Fallbrook’s Self-Study Document and the visiting committee’s report and on May 5th sent a letter to the school district announcing three additional years of accreditation status through June of 2018.

The Board of Directors of the Valley Center Municipal Water District this week unanimously approved provisions to meet the Governor’s mandate to reduce overall district consumption by 36% this year.  Based on staff recommendation, the local water district is adopting the San Diego County Water Authority’s restrictions on outdoor watering to twice weekly between the hours of 4p to 10a on Mondays and Fridays.  Drip irrigation is OK anytime.  All water leaks must repaired within three days of notification.  Water must not be applied to hard surfaces and runoff due to overwatering can be cited.  Use of hand held hoses with positive shut-off and buckets is allowed anytime and are required for washing of vehicles.  District Operations and Facilities staff members will be looking for violations, but initially only warning will be issued.

Escondido City Councilmembers decided at last night’s meeting that they’re keeping their options open on whether or not to appeal a judge’s ruling in favor of the developer of the former Escondido Country Club.  Coming out of closed session, City Attorney Jeff Epp read a statement that the council had directed him to maintain all options regarding potential litigation.  Developer Michael Schlesinger had made an offer Tuesday offering to settle the lawsuit against the city in exchange for allowing him to build the 270 homes he had proposed for the land – less than half the number allowed by the property’s zoning.  The judge’s ruling that Schlesinger can build on the land severely limits the amount of damages he can seek from the city to only what he has suffered from the 20-month delay in his building plans.

A lawsuit has been filed against the city of Escondido this week on an unrelated matter – the city’s refusal to allow a temporary residential facility for undocumented children.  Southwest Key Programs has been trying unsuccessfully to establish such a center for unaccompanied minors from Central America in the city for over a year.  The Texas-based company alleges the city has “manipulated the land use process, amended zoning codes, and unjustifiably refuses to grant necessary permits.”  The suit was filed on behalf of Southwest Key by the ACLU.

There were a series of earthquakes last night beginning about 8:15p midway between Calipatria and Octotillo Wells, at the southeastern shore of Salton Sea.  The first and largest was a magnitude 4.1.  Five more hit within a mile over the next two hours measuring 2.9, 2.8, 3.3, 2.6, and another 3.3 just after 10p.  No reports of damage.

Watch out for those wascally wabbits.  Sheriff’s deputies in Moreno Valley issued 29 citations to motorists during a one-hour sting operation Tuesday for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk … or was it a rabbit in a crosswalk?  Between 2 and 3p Tuesday, an officer wearing a white rabbit costume repeatedly stepped into a crosswalk at a Moreno Valley intersection heavily used by students walking to and from nearby schools.  Sheriffs said they used the rabbit costume because many motorists reported during previous crosswalk stings that they didn’t see the pedestrian.  Apparently on Tuesday at least 29 couldn’t see a 6-foot tall white rabbit either.  No report of how many texted about or selfied themselves with the giant rabbit.



In the NBA playoffs – LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers take the early lead in the Eastern Conference finals with a 97-89 win in Game 1 over the Hawks in Atlanta last night.  Hawks forward DeMarre Carrol has been diagnosed with a sprained left knee.  His status for Game 2 of that series Friday is questionable.  Golden State hosts the Rockets for Game 2 of the Western series tonight.  The Warriors won the first game in Oakland.

LeBron James and Golden State guard Stephen Curry were both unanimous selections to the All-NBA first team, each garnering all 129 first place votes.  They’re joined by Houston guard James Harden with 125 votes, New Orleans forward/center Anthony Davis with 119, and Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol with 65.  LA Clippers’ Chris Paul made second team and Blake Griffin was voted onto the third team.

In the NHL playoffs – another overtime game – this only only went one extra period with the Lightning winning 6-5 and taking a 2 games to one lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.  The Ducks play the Blackhawks in Chicago tonight at 5p local time.  That series is tied at 1.

In Major League Baseball – The Padres lost to the Cubs in Chicago yesterday 3-2.  Kris Byrant drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the 5th inning.  Chicago starter Tsuyoshi Wada struck out nine Padres, but left the game after 4 2/3rds innings with a pulled muscle.  He opened this season on the disabled list and has made six rehab starts.  His only mistake was a two-run homer by Justin Upton in the fourth.  Upton leads the Padres with 11 runs this year.  The Dodgers got skunked by the Giants 4-0 in San Francisco. The Angels beat the Blue Jays 4-3 in Toronto.  Filling in for the injured Albert Pujols, Marc Krauss hit a go-ahead two-run double.  Pujols left the game after being hit on the left hand by a pitch in the fourth inning.  Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto says xrays came back negative.   Pujols will be day to day until the bruise goes away.  All the same teams play again today.

In the Minors – The Storm have now lost six in a row, dropping a second game to Visalia last night at the Diamond 3-1.  They try to avoid the sweep tonight.  Stockton will be in town for four games beginning tomorrow.

In golf – Round 1 is underway at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.  The early leader after 10 holes was George McNeill at four under par.  At the PGA Championship in Wentworth where Rory McIlroy is the defending champion, Francesco Molinari leads after the first round with a 7-under par 65.  McIlroy is tied for 26th with a 71.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Charlotte is this Sunday.

Operator of the local multiple listing service, Sandicor reports that real estate sales have been consistent over the last year, dropping a bit from March to April, but that the average selling price per square foot for homes in the Fallbrook and Bonsall area rose about 7% over the last year.  The average per square foot in April of 2014 was $209.  This past April it was $225.  The average sales price for Fallbrook and Bonsall rose 18% to over $607k.  That could be due to more higher-priced and larger properties selling recently.  Sales volume was down from 71 sales in March to 64 last month.

About 2.7m Southern Californians and 4.4m residents statewide say they’ll be taking a long getaway this Memorial Day Weekend.  That’s a 4.6% increase over last year and the largest overall number since 2005, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California.  It’s also the biggest one-year jump in the last five years.  83% are expected to travel by car – that’s up 5.6%.  260k SoCal folks will fly – 2.6% more than last year.  But only 183k local travelers will use an RV.  That’s a 3.4% decrease from last year.  The Auto Club says the most popular destinations for Southern Californians are, in order:  San Diego, San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, Mexico, and Las Vegas.  Gas prices, while hovering around an average of nearly $4 a gallon, are lower than this same time last year.  And for those traveling out of state, or even to Northern California, gas prices are considerably lower elsewhere, by up to a dollar a gallon or more.

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee Tip for the month of May.  Hot weather is here and it’s time to clear away dead brush.  But remember to be safe when clearing your brush.  In recent years many brush fires have started from sparks produced by metal blades on motorized equipment.  Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Cut all grass and weeds down to three-inches or less for a minimum of 200 feet from all structures.
  • Always have a water source readily available … a garden hose or even a few buckets of water.
  • Avoid clearing brush during the peak temperatures of the day, between 11:00am and 3:00pm and on days when a Red Flag Alert has been declared by the Fire Department.
  • Always make sure the hot exhaust on any motorized equipment stays clear of any vegetation.
  • Do not use metal blades on weed whackers/whips.  Use nylon line or plastic blades instead.
  • Always wear safety glasses and gloves.

These tips were provided by the National Safety Council, the Los Angeles Fire Department and the Pala Safety Committee.
