LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES
A pressurized sewer main in Fallbrook ruptured at about 7a yesterday morning, dumping an estimated 17k gallons of untreated wastewater into Ostrich Creek before crews from Fallbrook Public Utilities could shut down a pump station at about 8:40a. Crews were able to recover about 200 gallons. The rest flowed into the creek at the 28080 block of Overland Trail. Contamination warning signs will remain posted until samples confirm water in the creek is safe. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/26/sewage-spill-fallbrook-ostrich-creek/
I-15 was shut down in both directions at the Rancho California Road overpass about 12:30p yesterday as officers talked a distraught man out of jumping onto the freeway. He was found standing outside the fence of the overpass. Riverside Sheriff’s deputies negotiated with the 27-year old while the Fire Department brought a hook and ladder truck to retrieve him from the bridge. He was taken into custody for medical evaluation. http://www.pe.com/articles/temecula-765816-california-talked.html
Escondido Police have arrested 35-year old Ehren Dragt on suspicion of murdering his domestic partner inside their home on Lee Drive in Escondido Saturday morning. The arrest was apparently prompted by a call from another family member from out of state. Neighbors saw Dragt on the front steps, distraught, on the phone just before an ambulance arrived at 10:30a. There were no obvious sign of trauma, but Dragt was taken for questioning and arrested based on statements made to investigators who have characterized the crime as “domestic violence.” http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/25/homicide-murder-killing-escondido-domestic-partner/
The suspect in a Friday night murder in Oceanside has admitted he did it. David Strouth moved into the house on Santa Rosa Street near Capistrano Drive two weeks ago as a friend of a roommate. A babysitter, arriving to watch children at the house at 9:30 Friday was confronted by a blood-covered Strouth who said he’d just “slayed the beast”. She got away and alerted neighbors who arrived armed, believing the children were in danger. It took five officers to subdue Strouth, who had fatally stabbed 49-year old Bradley Thomas Garner and was in the process of cutting himself. Strouth spontaneously admitted killing Garner several times as he was arrested and booked into Vista jail. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/27/oceanside-stabbing-death-santa-rosa-street/
A 33-year old Vista gang member was arrested yesterday on suspicion of shooting acquaintance who refused to turn over cash to him at the Pepperwood Apartments on University Drive Saturday afternoon. The unidentified victim was shot when he attempted to drive away from the holdup. He drove himself to the hospital where police took over the investigation and were able to identify the known gang-member suspect. They found him hiding in a bedroom closet at a home on Rhea Place just after noon Sunday. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/26/shooting-gang-member-Vista-home-boys-arrest/
A swerving semi-truck led police on a chase from Riverside County almost to San Diego Friday night. A 42-year old Chicago man, suspected to have been driving under the influence, refused to yield to deputies after being observed weaving. He hit spike strips on the southbound 15 at Gopher Canyon, missed another set at El Norte parkway, but pulled off the freeway at West Bernardo before reaching a third set planned by CHP at Rancho Bernardo Road. He was taken into custody after beanbag rounds were fired at the drivers’ window when he refused to come out of the cab. The northbound I-15 offramp and West Bernardo/Pomerado Road was closed until about 10p Friday for investigation. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/apr/24/chp-pursues-semi-riverside-county-bernardo-road/
In the NBA playoffs – The Clippers evened up their series with the Spurs at two games apiece with a 114-105 win in San Antonio yesterday. LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 27 points as they completed a sweep of the Celtics in Boston 101-93. Cav forward Kevin Love suffered a dislocated shoulder on a “bush-league” play against Boston Center Kelly Olynyk, who says there was no intent to injure. Cleveland advances to round two. It was also a sweep in Sunday’s other Eastern Conference series. The Wizards stomped the Raptors in Washington 125-94, winning their fourth straight. Houston leads the series with the Mavericks 3 games to one after yesterday’s other game. Final score in Dallas, 121-109. Golden State finished their sweep of New Orleans on Saturday with a 109-98 win in the Big Easy. Game 5 today for the Bulls, hosting the Bucks. Chicago leads 3 games to one.

In the NHL playoffs – Two series-deciding games yesterday – The Wild finished off the Blues in Minnesota 4-1. They win their Western Conference first round 4 games to 2. And the Canadiens shut out the Senators in Ottawa 2-0 to win that series 4 games to 2. Game 6 for the Lightning at Detroit tonight with the Red Winds leading the series 3 games to 2. Game 7 tonight for the Islanders at Washington.
In Major League Baseball – The Padres avoided the sweep by LA, winning 3-1 yesterday. Brandon Morrow pitched 7 strong innings for his first Padres win. Alexi Amarista and Derek Norris homered for San Diego as the Padres snap a four-game losing streak. The Angels came up on the short side of a 5-4 game with the Rangers in Anaheim. Baltimore turned in the offensive performance of the day yesterday with an 18-7 win over Boston at Camden Yard. Today, the Padres host the Astros. The Dodgers host the Giants, and the Angels have a day off.
In the Minors – The Storm took 3 out of 4 from the visiting Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, winning 7-2 Friday, 5-1 Saturday, and 10-2 yesterday. They’re off today and start at series at Inland Empire tomorrow.
In golf, at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, Switzerland’s Justin Rose held on win by a stroke at 22 under par 266. Three other players did a stroke better in yesterday’s final round at 65, but came up short. Rose’s four rounds were 69 on Thursday, followed by 66, 65 and 66.

Stocks are down a little today. The Dow is off 6 points.
Retail gasoline prices continue to rise. Locally, they’re up another penny today, making it a 26 cent rise in the last week. Today’s average price for a gallon of regular in Riverside County is $3.41. In San Diego County it’s almost $3.44. In Orange County, it’s $3.49. That’s 95 cents more per gallon than the national average. Some of the cheapest gas in the country right now is in Arizona. In Tucson, a number of stations are at $2.01 a gallon. Stations in San Diego County selling for less than $3 a gallon disappeared last week. There are still a few in the Inland Empire. Today’s lowest prices locally are $3.19 at San Marcos Costco and $3.13 at Costco and Sam’s Club in the Temecula Valley. http://www.sandiegogasprices.com/
LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING
Not a lot of excitement at the box office over the weekend – that comes beginning next week with the new Avengers “Age of Ultron” this Friday, Hot Pursuit, Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, and Spy coming later in May. This past weekend, “Furious 7” remained #1 for the fourth week, bringing in another $18.2m in ticket sales. It’s domestic total so far is $320m. “Mall Cop 2” remained at #2 in its second week in theaters with another $15.5m. “The Age of Adaline” with Blake Lively, Harrison Ford, and Ellen Burstyn opened in 3rd place with $13.4m. CinemaScore gives it an A-. It’s showing on 7-900 fewer screens than the first and second place movies and did slightly better than Mall Cop on a per screen average. “Home (2015)” was once again 4th. Supernatural horror flick “Unfriended” had a big drop from 3rd to 5th place. Word’s getting out. It’s a stinker earning a “C” from CinemaScore. The rest of the top ten were “Ex Machina” which went into wider release after opening on 12 screen two weeks ago. It’s a man versus machine sci-fi thriller. It was 6th, followed by “The Longest Ride”, “Get Hard”, “Monkey Kingdom”, and “Woman in Gold”. The week’s other two new films – “Little Boy”, a World War II period piece with Kevin James and Emily Watson opened in 13th place on just over a thousand screens. “The Water Diviner” with Russell Crowe was right behind it on just 320 screens with a respectable $3,900 per screen average. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/chart/?yr=2015&wknd=17&p=.htm
Following directly on the heels of the Coachella Music Festival, the 9th annual Stagecoach Country Music festival was this past weekend at the same Empire Polo Grounds in Indio. ZZ Top was the hit of the show with a number of other artists including Miranda Lambert and covering songs by the Lil’ ‘ol band from Texas. The three-day festival included performances by Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley and Blake Shelton, rockers Gregg Allman, George Thoroughgood and Eric Burdon. http://www.pe.com/articles/rock-765761-stage-country.html
Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of April:
It’s snake season. Most bites occur between April and October. Snakes are like people in that they stay put when the weather is hot, then get out and move around when the sun goes down. That’s when man and snake often meet. You don’t have to be paranoid about being bitten, but you do have to be careful. You can’t completely eliminate snakes, but you can make their presence less likely:
- Keep your yard and children’s play areas tidy. Clear away undergrowth and piles of things that make good hiding places for snakes.
- Keep walkways clear of brush, flowers and shrubs
- Clean up spilled food, fruit that drops from trees and bird seed. All of these attract rodents, which attract snakes
- Tell children not to stick their hands down holes, under rocks or ledges, or even into brush.
Snakes can strike across a distance equal to about half their body length. If you see a snake, stop and slowly move back the way you came. Never try to step over a snake.
