PALA TODAY – Wednesday 7/30/14

The following items are part of “Pala Today” as heard this day at noon on PALA REZ RADIO™ 91.3 FM in Pala and worldwide online … click here to listen live



As Rez Radio’s Twitter followers were informed earlier this morning - An accident at Pala Temecula and Rancho Heights Roads just after 11 caused a closure of Pala Temecula in both directions as of about 11:30.  Units from Pala Fire were among those responding.

Multiple fires yesterday afternoon along Wildcat Canyon Road in Lakeside were held to a total of about 25 acres thanks to a shutdown of the road and full scale attack by Cal Fire, Barona Fire and the U.S. Forest Service.  Some nearby homes were threatened for a time, but none were damaged.

Arraignment was this morning for the juvenile arsonist accused of starting the Coco’s Fire in San Marcos that burned 2k acres and destroyed at least 3 dozen homes.  The female suspect has been ordered to undergo a mental competency exam before coming back to court on August 20th.  She is not linked to any of the other dozen or more fires that blackened over 10k acres in San Diego County on May 14th and 15th.  The Bernardo fire was determined to have started by sparks from a backhoe.  The cause of the deadly Poinsettia Fire has yet to be determined.

The 17-year old found fatally injured on Fallbrook Street early Tuesday morning has been identified as Alfonso Martinez of Fallbrook.  He did die from being hit by a vehicle.  But it’s still unknown whether it was the one that stopped after being unable to avoid the boy already lying in the road or another possible previous vehicle that did not stop or report an accident.

One of the people killed in a fiery crash on I-15 in Corona ten days ago was identified yesterday as 24-year old Krista Gomez of Valley Center.  She was a passenger in the vehicle hit by 34-year old Julio Alejandro Reyes of Riverside.  His vehicle had been going as fast as 100 miles an hour at the time of the accident.  Reyes was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter and drunk driving.  As of yesterday, he had not been charged.  The body of the other person in the car with Gomez still hasn’t been identified.

Camp Pendleton is getting a new base commander.  Ceremonies will be held at 10a this Friday at the 11 Area Parade Field as Brig. Gen. John Bullard turns over command of Marine Corps Installations West and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton to Brig. Gen. Edward Banta.  Gen. Bullard has been in charge of Camp Pendleton since August of last year.  General Banta previously served as the commander of the 2nd Marine Logistics Group.

State legislation which went into effect last week prohibits homeowners associations from fining residents who let their lawns die during the drought.  AB 2100 was one of five bills dealing with HOA’s and the drought circulating in Sacramento over the last few weeks.  It’s the one Governor Brown ended up signing.  Some have criticized it for not reaching beyond the 5m or so households statewide that are covered by an HOA.  Still others say it’s overreach by the state for a problem that should be dealt with more locally or through mandated increases in irrigation efficiency.

Effective this Friday, the city of San Marcos is closing its splash pad water features at five city parks in response to the level 2 drought alert declared by the state and the San Diego County Water Authority. The city estimates shutting off the water pads will save between 8 and 12k gallons of water daily.

There was a mild earthquake, measuring 2.9 on the Richter scale about 2 ½ miles south of Idyllwild last night just before 2a.



In Major League Baseball – The Padres’ Jed Gyorko singled in the go-ahead run as the Padres beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 last night at Petco Park.  Gyorko only just returned to the lineup after 44 days on the disabled list.  The Dodgers beat the Braves 8-4 with Matt Kemp hitting two home runs for LA.  The Giants lost their 6th in a row, putting LA 3 games ahead of San Francisco in first place in the NL West.  The Angels lost to the Orioles in Baltimore 7-6 in 12 innings.  All the same teams play each other again today.

Facebook and Twitter lit up yesterday with the news that Baseball Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will return for his 66th season in the Dodgers’ broadcast booth in 2015.  86-year old Scully began his career with the Dodgers in Brooklyn in 1950 and became the team’s primary play-by-play man in 1953 when Red Barber went to work for cross-river rivals the Yankees.  He made the move with the team to LA in 1958 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1982.

In the minors – The Storm got shut out 4-0 by the Quakes last night in Lake Elsinore.  The rubber game of the match is tonight.  The Storm finish the month of July on the road at Lancaster Thursday.

11 minor league players have been suspended following two bench-clearing brawls Saturday night in a Triple-A game between the Dodgers’ Albuquerque Isotopes and the Arizona Diamondbacks’ top minor league team, the Reno Aces.  The second brawl lasted 21 minutes and resulted in 10 ejections from the game.  The instigator was rehabbing Dodgers infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena.  Not being a minor leaguer, he was not suspended, but has been reassigned to the single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.  Storm fans might get a chance to boo him tonight at The Lake.

Horse racing at Del Mar is back on the controversial turf course today after a safety check by California Horse Racing Board authorities yesterday.  Nine horses have died in the first nine days of racing this year at Del Mar – five on the track – four of those on the turf track.  That compares with four deaths the entire racing season last year.

Last week the SoCal Warriors softball team competed in this year’s Indigenous Games in Saskatchewan, Canada.  They won the championship and the gold medal in the 17 and under class, winning three games in a row – the first two by 12 to 1 and 15 to 3 blowouts.  The third game went into extra innings after the SoCal Warriors came back from being 3 runs down in the 7th inning.  Their final game was rained out and not rescheduled since all the other teams had at least two losses.  This team also won gold in Michigan in 2011 in the 13 and under division.  For some team members, this was their first time flying and all had to get passports for travel into Canada.  (story by Eric Ortega)



Another flat day for stocks.  Here’s the midday update from

Frank Fantozzi of Planned Financial Services spoke with’s Alisa Parenti about what’s keeping stocks so close to flatline in today’s Stock Talk.

Gas prices are trending down.  Today’s average price for a gallon of regular in San Diego County is $3.96 – down a fraction of a penny from yesterday – down a nickel from a week ago – 18 cents from a month ago – and is even eight cents less than the same time last year.  It’s also the lowest average price since March.  The average in Riverside County is a penny higher than San Diego.  Southern California however continues to be more expensive than most of the rest of the country. reports today’s national average is $3.50.  Parts of Oklahoma have some of the lowest prices in the country right now at just over $3 a gallon.  The lowest price locally is $3.63 at the ARCO at E. Valley Parkway and Midway in Escondido.

In today’s Take on Tech, workout clothing is toning up.

Ever get that sinking feeling?  In the Coachella Valley, groundwater pumping has siphoned out so much of the local aquifer in the pursuit of creating a lush, green oasis on the surface of the desert that the surface has sunk in elevation up to two feet in parts of Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and La Quinta since 1995.  A 17-year study by the U.S. Geological Survey also found that groundwater levels have been declining since the 1970’s and are now at historic lows.  In 2010, the Coachella Valley had more than 100 golf courses, an agricultural industry producing at record levels and almost a half-million year-round residents, most of whom have lawns.  Compare that with the area’s average annual rainfall of 3 inches.  But the symptom of the land sinking has even greater consequences.  For one, it’s not reversible.  Once the area beneath the surface that once held water is displaced by clay through compaction, it can never again hold water.  And by changing the elevation of some areas, it disrupts canals, drainages, pipelines and flood channels that rely on gravity for flow.  It can also damage wells, bridges, roads and buildings.

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of July …

To make summer barbecues a safe and fun experience for everyone…

  • Keep children away from any area near hot coals or open flames
  • Use only enough charcoal to cover the base of the grill to a depth of two inches.
  • Store extra charcoal in a sealed container with a tight lid and keep it dry.  Wet charcoals can spontaneously combust.
  • Use only recognized charcoal starter fluid, only on cold briquettes and only as much as needed to start the coals
  • When removing ashes, make sure they are cool or use a non-flammable container like a metal bucket
  • For gas barbecues, check the cylinder and all connections for leaks using soapy water and watching for bubbles.  Try to tighten leaky connections, but don’t over-tighten
  • Never use a propane cylinder past its legal use date
  • Open the grill lid before turning on the gas or lighting
  • Always turn off the propane cylinder when finished cooking
  • Change propane cylinders in the open air, not a confined space and avoid storing gas cylinders indoors

The tips provided by the Fire Prevention & Control Board 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 land adjacent to Pala in effect every day until further notice.
