PALA TODAY – Thursday 2/26/2015

by John Fox - The following items are part of the award-winning “Pala Today” newscast 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.  Note:  Some portions of today’s newscast are only available in the live broadcast and not included in this transcript.



Enjoy today’s sunshine.  You’re not going to see much more of it for the next week.  And get ready for a wet weekend.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Saturday afternoon through Monday afternoon.  The full forecast is coming up. (below)

San Diego Search and Rescue workers are in their third day of looking for a missing hiker near Warner Springs.  28-year old Chris Sylvia, an experienced outdoorsman, left Anza two weeks ago headed south for a week or longer trek by himself on the Pacific Crest Trail.  He called a friend two days later to arrange a pickup of supplies near Warner Springs on the 17th, but never arrived.  The friend assumed he’d just continued on without stopping, but became worried when Sylvia failed to reach his destination in Campo and notified Sheriffs two days ago – the same day other hikers found Sylvia’s gear and ID north of Warner Springs, about 13 miles from Highway 79.  Chris Sylvia is described as white with brown hair and hazel eyes, 5 foot 8, 155 pounds and was last seen wearing a dark fleece jacket, green camo pants, and dark brown hiking boots. The contact number for San Diego Sheriff’s is 858 565 5200.

Thieves have broken into Valley Center Library twice in about a month.  Authorities said yesterday that iPads, laptops and other electronics were stolen both times.  But the most recent theft at the end of January included five Remington sculptures and five paintings or photos.  One was a photo of a local Native American jeweler.  Crime Stoppers are asking for help in locating the $15k worth of items taken from Valley Center.  The phone number for Valley Center Sheriffs is 760 751 4400 and Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line is 888 580 8477.  Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The Fallbrook Healthcare district reached an agreement this month with Tennessee-based Community Health Systems for termination of their lease to operate Fallbrook Hospital.  According to the agreement, Fallbrook Hospital will be completely closed no later than March 31st.  The district will pay CHS $5m to satisfy its assets repurchase agreement and certain liabilities will be coveredby CHS for up to 12 months.  The two sides will also work together to transition the Skilled Nursing Facility to a new operator.  Fallbrook Healthcare has also finalized a Joint Powers Agreement with Palomar Heath System to take over health care for the area.  Most if not all signage for Fallbrook Hospital has already been removed since the Emergency Room is already shut down.

Jury deliberations begin today in Murrieta for Kyle Roger McLean, who’s accused of killing his 71-year old grandmother in a drug-induced rage.  Earlier this week, McLean testified he lost control during an argument with her, knocked her to the ground, but then blacked out and claims to not remember anything after that.  He also testified that he dumped her body in a ravine near Yucaipa.  The body has yet to be found.

A Homeland woman who faked terminal cancer to receive money and gifts pleaded guilty yesterday to felony theft.  39-year old Cristina Lagman is scheduled for sentencing Monday at Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta.  Lagman was on probation for a 2013 conviction for embezzlement and was also convicted of welfare fraud in 2012.

A pair of fuel thieves got away from police but left behind a stolen truck in Oceanside last night.  Security saw the two forcing their way into Superior Concrete Company on Oceanside Boulevard after 9:30p.  They’d gotten about 600 gallons of diesel fuel out of a10k gallon tank before police arrived.  The company had the target of other diesel thefts in the last two days.

A water main on Gafford Road in Wildomar ruptured yesterday around 11:30 in the morning sending water, mud and small rocks through backyards and down streets.  Elsinore Municipal Water said service was expected to be fully restored late last night.

If you noticed smoke rising above the hills west of Lake Elsinore yesterday, it was nothing to worry about.  CalFire and the Riverside County Fire Department were conducting a controlled burn in the Ortega Mountains.

And there was smoke in the 30000 block of Villa Alturas in Temecula yesterday afternoon.  A house fire there was contained mainly to one room by about 1:30.  No one was home at the time, but the family of three that lived there will need to find alternate shelter.

Shoulder and center striping work continues on Highway 76 east of Pala, mainly east of Valley Center Road today.  Expect possible delays due to lane closures and one way escorted traffic.



In the NBA – The Clippers lost at Houston 110-105 and the Lakers won another one, this time 100-97 in Utah as they outscored the Jazz 31-19 in the final quarter.  You can bet the victory celebration this time was a little more muted, because ...

Lakers coach Byron Scott says he was “angry” and “disappointed” with the way some of his players celebrated their overtime victory against the visiting Celtics Sunday - particularly Nick Young, Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer.  He says he didn’t realize how unprofessional it looked until it was played back Monday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”  Kobe Bryant was a guest on the show that night.  He sat there stone-faced and silent in reaction to viewing the recording.  Scott says he had pretty much the same reaction, and though he doesn’t plan any disciplinary action, he wants players to know that’s not how a pro acts.

Elsewhere, Sacramento, Portland, Phoenix, Minnesota, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Boston, and Charlotte all won their games.  And Miami beat Orlando 93-90 in overtime.  Just two games tonight – Golden State at Cleveland, and Oklahoma City at Phoenix.

In college hoops – #1 Kentucky and #2 Virginia easily handled their opponents last night.  But #4 Duke needed overtime to beat unranked Virginia Tech 91-86.  #10 Northern Iowa and #11 Wichita State won their games.  #19 Baylor upset Big 12 rival #12 Iowa State 79-70.  And #22 VCU was upset by unranked Richmond in double overtime 67-63.  UCLA ended a two-game losing streak by routing the visiting Washington Huskies 88-66.  #7 Arizona is at Colorado tonight.  USD visits #3 Gonzaga.

In the NHL – Senators’ goalie Andrew Hammond got his first career shutout in just his third career start as Ottowa beat Anaheim 3-0 at Honda Center.  Pittsburgh beat Washington 4-3 and Calgary beat the Devils in New Jersey 3-1.  Tonight, Ottowa moves on to LA for a game against the Kings.

In Major League Baseball – The Angels’ Josh Hamilton was scheduled to meet with league officials yesterday in New York about a disciplinary issue.  He’s had previous suspensions related to cocaine and alcohol addicition and is currently out of action, recovering from shoulder surgery.  He’s not expected to ready to play again until May.

In High School prep sports:  Girls’ basketball round I for San Diego CIF last night – in Division I, Poway pounded Escondido 69-42, West Hills beat San Diego 57-40, Mater Dei over Rancho Buena Vista 70-54, Horizon Christian dominated Vista 76-28, and Serra squeaked by San Marcos 50-49.  In Division II, Helix whupped El Camino 69-20, Fallbrook lost a heartbreaker to Montgomery 44-42, Carlsbad beat Brawley 49-23.  In Division III, Mira Mesa beat Valley Center 51-36.  In Division IV, El Capitan beat Orange Glen 53-28.  Girls’ quarterfinals are Saturday.  Boys’ basketball quarterfinals are this Friday with Vista at Torrey Pines, El Camino at Army-Navy and St. Augustine at San Marcos, all at 7p

Fallbrook – no scheduled games today

Valley Center – no scheduled games today

Great Oak – boys’ tennis at Santiago today at 3:15



Another fairly flat day on Wall Street.  Gold is at its highest level in over a week, up $8.60 today to $1,210 an ounce.  April oil is down $2 to $48.88 a barrel on the Nymex exchange.

T-Mobile stock rallied to an eight-month high after Citigroup upgraded the wireless carrier’s rating.  T-Mobile stock is up 22% so far this year.

Consumer prices fell in January for the third straight month while inflation over the past 12 months turned negative for the first time since 2009, mostly because of cheaper gasoline.  That means paychecks, adjusted for inflation, are stretching further.

Despite the low rate of inflation, the Federal Reserve is laying the groundwork for an increase in interest rates as early as June. The central bank views the steep drop in inflation as a temporary phenomenon that will soon be reversed.  The Labor Department said today that in January, the consumer price index sank by a seasonally adjusted 0.7%, the biggest one-month drop since the end of 2008.

The Walt Disney Co. raised ticket prices across its theme parks effective Sunday. One-day, one-park tickets for Disneyland were raised to $99 from $96, and for Disneyland California adventure, the price was lifted to $99 from $96.  But the price for Disney World near Orlando is now $105.  The prices are posted on the Disneyland websites. Even though entry for one day to the magical kingdom is not at the magical $100 barrier, some journalists are saying its still a bargain, delivering a consistent, predictable product for the money.


Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of February:

The use of wood stoves has increased in recent years.  So has the number of wood stove and chimney fires.  Always have a wood stove installed by a professional and keep these tips in mind:

  • Keep anything flammable at least three feet away from the stove
  • Put a screen around the stove opening to keep children and pets from being accidentally burned
  • Burn only dry, well-seasoned wood
  • Never use kerosene, gasoline, charcoal starter or lighter fluid to start or revive a fire in a wood stove
  • Never use your stove to burn trash
  • Most chimney fires are due to the buildup of creosote.  Open the air inlets or stove door and allow the wood to burn freely for 10-15 minutes several times a week to reduce creosote build-up
  • The sounds of a chimney fire include a loud roar, sucking sounds and shaking pipes.  If you think you have a chimney fire, call the fire department immediately, cut off the fire’s air supply by closing any intake vents on the stove, close the damper and get everyone out of the house.

These tips were provided by the American Red Cross, the National Fire Protection Association 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.
