LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

Permits for open burning in state responsibility areas of unincorporated San Diego and Riverside Counties are suspended, effective today through the rest of this year’s wildfire season, which usually lasts until November.  The ban specifically prohibits burning of deadwood, fallen branches and leaves.  Campfires are still allowed, but only in designated areas within campgrounds.  The ban does not apply to cities, which have their own permit system.  Local CalFire Unit Chief Tony Mecham urges back country residents to maintain 100 feet of defensible space around homes and buildings, and landscape with fire resistant / drought tolerant plants.  Since January 1st, California firefighters have already fought 920 wildfires.  (CalFire media release)

A 100-acre wildfire near Banning was contained last night.  It began near the Lamb’s Canyon landfill east of Highway 79 yesterday afternoon around 3p.  185 firefighters with air tanker and helicopter water drop support halted the forward progress of the fire by about 5p.  No homes or structures were threatened. https://patch.com/california/banning-beaumont/fire-scorches-100-acres-south-beaumont

Deputies from the Valley Center Sheriff’s substation fired bean bag and handgun rounds at a man wielding a machete Wednesday.  The call came in to 911 at 11:38a from 28586 Lilac Road in Valley Center.  Rounds were fired after Miguel Zuniga refused orders to drop the machete and began throwing rocks at deputies.  Later deployment of a Taser and K9 had little effect on the man, who was eventually subdued and taken into custody.  He was first taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries from the K9 and bean bag rounds and then booked on multiple felony charges.  He was not hit by the gunfire.  Sheriff’s investigators are still sorting through the details.  http://valleycenterhappenings.com/17690/289572/a/deputy-involved-shooting-in-valley-center

Two Oceanside-based CHP officers were awarded the California Medal of Valor Tuesday at ceremonies in Sacramento for preventing a suicidal woman from jumping off a bridge over I-5 in April.  Moments after approaching the 21-year old at the Carlsbad Village Drive overpass, she jumped, but officers Kerry Comphel and Jason Hughes were able to grab her by the arms and pull her back to safety.  https://patch.com/california/oceanside-camppendleton/merit-award-2-oceanside-based-patrol-officers-who-prevented

According to an 11-page inspection report issued this week, SoCal Edison violated procedural requirements in the construction of its storage facility for millions of pounds of nuclear waste at San Onofre.  The report notes that improper testing of the density of grout under the stainless steel containers that will house spent fuel was discovered by company officials and corrected.  Edison said the violation was a small oversight and now meets requirements.  A spokesman noted that the grout is not part of radiation shielding.  The infraction was classified by federal regulators as a Level IV violation – the lowest of four severity levels.  http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/watchdog/sd-me-san-onofre-violation-20170525-story.html

A grand jury report says that the disabled are avoiding using Sprinter light rail trains due to a conflict with space being shared by bicycles.  People who bring bikes on board frequently take up the small multipurpose space intended for wheelchairs and other appliances used by disabled riders.  http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/communities/north-county/

 

SPORTS   

In the NBA playoffs – In Boston last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers easily beat the Celtics 135-102 to take the Eastern Conference finals 4 games to 1.  Cleveland led from start to finish, outscoring Boston in all but the 4th quarter when the game was clearly in the bag.  LeBron James got his 29 points and more to surpass Michael Jordan as the all-time leading playoff scorer.  James had 35 last night as the Cavs claimed their third straight Eastern title.  Basketball fans and players get the holiday weekend off – and most of next week as well.  The NBA finals begin Thursday in Oakland – Cavs against the Warriors for the third time. 

In the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs – Last night in Pittsburgh, the Penguins wrapped up a conference finals series that couldn’t have gone much further to the wire.  A goal by left wing Chris Kunitz at 5:09 into the second overtime period won Game 7 for Pittsburgh over Ottawa 3-2, sending the Penguins to the Stanley Cup finals against Nashville.  And they did it with a lot key players injured.  It was the 5th one-goal game of the series.  Pittsburgh now has the chance to become the first team in 20 years to win back-to-back NHL titles. 

In Major League Baseball – Wow, the Padres have won two in a row.  They beat the Mets last night in the rain in New York 4-3.  Right hander Dinelson Lamet delivered a solid performance in his Major League debut for the win.  The Padres led off with 2 runs, added another in the 3rd and got an insurance run in the 9th that they’d end up needing as the Mets scored once in the bottom of the 9th.  The Rays shut out the Angels in Florida 4-0.  And the Dodgers downed the Cardinals in LA 7-3.  Tonight, the Padres are in Washington, the Angels move on to Miami and the Dodgers host the Cubs.

In the Minors – The Storm got skunked by the visiting 66ers last night 5-0 at The Diamond.  Inland Empire ended up taking two out of the three game series.  The Storm host Visalia for the first of four games tonight. 

In college baseball – Yesterday in Albuquerque, San Diego State opened the Mountain West Tournament by beating Fresno State 18-10.  The game was played in wind of about 27 miles an hour.  Apparently it was blowing towards the outfield.  Everyone in the lineup scored at least once in the bottom of the first inning before the first out.  San Diego State had ten runs when the inning was over – 8 more than the Bulldogs.   The Aztecs’ next game is tomorrow at 6p against the winner of tonight’s game between Nevada and New Mexico.  http://www.goaztecs.com/sports/m-basebl/recaps/052517aab.html

In the NFL – Steelers’ defenseman James Harrison is gaining a following on social media beyond the awe of his teammates for this weight lifting feats.  At 39 years old, he’s been posting on Instagram his reps of 405 pounds on an incline bench press and hip thrusts at more than 700 pounds.  Harrison says his increased interest in power lifting was more than just beating tackles.  He says power lifting aids his recovery from soft-tissue injuries.  “Body maintenance” he calls it.  And he’s serious about it with a regimen every day of the week.  But it comes with a price.  Harrison spends $300k or more on masseuses, chiropractors, cuppers and others.  http://www.espn.com/blog/pittsburgh-steelers/post/_/id/23844/james-harrisons-many-feats-of-strength

In golf – at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Web Simpson led Paul Casey by one stroke at 6-under par 134 after two rounds of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational with most of the field still on the course, including yesterday’s leader Derek Fathauer.  Defending champion Jordan Speith is one of those already in the clubhouse, four strokes back. http://www.espn.com/golf/leaderboard

The Indianapolis 500 is this Sunday on ABC television at 9a.  Scott Dixon has the pole position in the #9 Honda.  He was top qualifier at 232.164 miles an hour.  http://www.espn.com/racing/grid/_/raceId/201705280106/series/indycar

BUSINE$$

The major U.S. Stock indexes are just about flat today in advance of the holiday weekend.  Gold was up almost $12 to $1,271.60 as of mid-afternoon trading.  Oil was up 80 cents. 

Shares of AMC theaters were up 7% as movie attendance rose 5.5% in the first quarter of this year compared with Q1 2016.  We’re just now entering the busiest time of the year for theaters and FBR & Co. upgraded AMC to outperform status.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/strong-q1-box-office-leads-b-riley-analyst-to-increase-estimates-for-film-exhibitor-group-2017-04-10

Right now, Hollywood is in love with the 80’s, which hit its peak in 1986 with Top Gun, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Stand By Me, and The Karate Kid Part II.  Of the top 15 highest grossing films of that decade, only three have not either been remade, given a sequel or turned into a franchise – “ET”, “Tootsie”, and “Rain Man”.  “Blade Runner 2049” is coming to theaters in October.  According to Top Gun’s then-24-year old star, Tom Cruise while on a promotional tour of his latest movie in Australia, Top Gun will be remade in the next year.  No word on whether it will involve any San Diego County locations this time.  The Top Gun fighter pilot school has since moved from Miramar to Fallon, Nevada. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/hollywood-loves-the-1980s-as-much-as-it-loves-franchises-and-remakes-2017-05-26

Competition is heating up between Amazon and Costco.  They have totally different business models, but they’re beginning to cross over into each other’s territories.  Amazon now offers grocery delivery through AmazonFresh.  Costco announced two months ago that it would begin grocery delivery in Tampa by the end of the year.  Bulk buys and Costco’s house brand, Kirkland, which Consumer Reports often likes better than name brands are the big box retailers’ strength.  Even though some Kirkland items can be found on Amazon, they’re generally cheaper at Costco.  Amazon tends to have better prices on diverse items like books, CDs, DVDs, diapers and printer ink.  Amazon also offers its Subscribe & Save tool where shoppers automatically reorder and get a discount.   http://www.marketwatch.com/story/where-do-you-get-better-deals-costco-or-amazon-2017-05-25?mod=MW_story_top_stories

Originally the time of mattress sales, Memorial Day is turning into the new Black Friday.  It’s not the best time to buy everything however.  Experts say automobiles are best purchased between July and October during the model changeover.  Electronics on sale this weekend won’t be the best models.  Back to school tends to be the best time to get a new laptop.  TVs on sale this weekend are mostly older models.  November’s real Black Friday is the best time for TV deals.  The best time to buy gym equipment is January when everyone is trying to initiate New Year’s resolutions about health.  June is also a good time as retailers try to clear inventory.  Father’s Day – just around the corner – is the best time to buy power tools.  Hint, hint.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/6-things-not-to-buy-at-memorial-day-sales-2017-05-26

 

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

This weekend at the movies, just one big wide release opening today.  “Pirates of the Caribbean:  Dead Men Tell No Tales” opens on almost 4,300 screens.  Watch for Sir Paul McCartney in a minor supporting role as one of the pirates.  The comedy remake of TV’s “Baywatch” starring Dwayne Johnson opened yesterday on over 3,600 screens.  Paramount Pictures reports it sold about $4.5m worth of tickets including Wednesday night previews.  That’s below expectations.  CinemaScore audiences surveyed gave it a “B+”.  Last night’s preview of Pirates did about $5.5m in business, which was almost 20% better than “On Stranger Tides” six years ago.  This new one won’t be more popular than X-Men or even Guardians of the Galaxy, but it is expected to be tops at this weekend’s box office.  Dead Men is the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=4295&p=.htm

Lots of fun things going on for the Memorial weekend.  Here are a few.  The Starlight Bazaar is tonight from 6 to 10p in Temecula at Vail Headquarters on Temecula Parkway at Redhawk.  It’s a monthly farmer’s market with over two dozen vendors, live music performances, a car show, street performers and food trucks.  Tomorrow from 10a to 3p in Oceanside, the North County Model Railroad Society is offering a Trains for Kids layout at its new location at 220 Peyri Drive in Oceanside.  There’s an open casting call for contestants for a new reality TV show based at the Del Mar racetrack, called “Win Place Show”.  Filming will take place at the track during the summer racing season.  And this is Western Days weekend in Valley Center with a parade tomorrow at 10a on Valley Center Road from Cole Grade to Lilac, ending at the community center.  http://www.valleycenter.com/articles/western-days-weekend-is-coming/

The U.S. Census Bureau reported yesterday that San Diego had the 10th greatest numeric population increase of any city in the country during the last full fiscal year.  That puts the city at just over 1.4m people – the eighth largest city in the U.S., behind San Antonio and ahead of Dallas.  The largest numeric increase was in Phoenix which gained about twice as many new residents for a total population of 1.6m, making it the nation’s 5th largest city. http://www.kpbs.org/news/2017/may/25/sd-municipal-populations/
