PALA TODAY – Thursday 2/4/16 – PT will not air or be published tomorrow 2/5, returning Mon 2/8

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.


Construction traffic caused congestion at Highway 76 and Old 395, extending to traffic exiting I-15 SB at 76 this morning.  There was a closure at 76 and Old 395 beginning at 11a for about an hour due to blasting on the hillside at the northwest corner of that intersection.

Robert Young, the author of the “pH Miracle” book series was convicted yesterday on two counts of practicing medicine without a license at his Valley Center cancer retreat.  He was acquitted on a third count and the jury deadlocked on six other charges, including two counts of grand theft.  The jury deliberated for about two weeks, at one point notifying Judge Richard Whitney that there were at an impasse.  He ordered them to continue deliberations.  Of the deadlocked charges, the jury split 11-1 in favor of conviction on practicing medicine without a license, and 8-4 in favor of conviction for theft by fraud.  Young promoted practices that he claimed neutralized alkaline and acidity in the blood and charged about $1,000 a day for patients to be at his Valley Center ranch.  The two-month long trial began out of an investigation by the state Medical Board.  63-year old Young was led from the courtroom in handcuffs.  He faces three years and eight months in prison.

The Temecula City Manager’s office says they’ll be looking into “plan B” to fund the next phase of construction on the French Valley Parkway project.  Phase 1 was the southbound I-15 exit.  Next comes the bridge over the freeway to the east side and lanes parallel to the freeway allowing traffic from that end of Temecula a Murrieta direct access to the 215 without first getting on the 15.  A substantial portion of the $41.5m to construct Phase 2 was supposed to come from state funds.  The state transportation commission last month cut road and transit project funding by $754m over the next five years – the largest such cuts in 20 years.  The cuts are due to anticipated shortfalls in the state gasoline tax.  It used to be 18 cents a gallon.  It’s now 12 cents and is scheduled to drop another 2 cents in July.  That, plus more fuel efficient vehicles have cut revenue.  Riverside County does have a ½ cent sales tax earmarked for transportation projects.  But it’s supposed to supplement, not replace state funds.  Governor Brown is calling for legislation to replace and increase funding for transportation with increased license fees.  But Republican lawmakers in Sacramento say that’s not needed – that the state is currently projected to have a $7b surplus and should tag some of that for transportation.

Next week’s Valley Center Community Planning Group meeting will include presentations on a potential widening of Cole Grade Road and roundabouts.  A previous presentation on the Cole Grade Road project had limited attendance due to heavy rains last month.  At issue is the removal of up to 180 mature oak trees along the proposed project area.  The presentation on roundabouts is from a northern California engineering firm and is informational-only comparing their use to traditional traffic light intersections.  The meeting is Monday, February 8 at 7p downstairs at Valley Center Community Hall.

The City of Carlsbad approved a new general plan in September.  Part of it calls for reworking the intersection of the coast highway at Palomar Airport Road.  It’s currently a swooping ramp leftover from before I-5 when U.S. 101 bypassed downtown Carlsbad and Oceanside and became a four-lane freeway that later became part of I-5.  Replacement possibilities include a T-intersection or a roundabout – either of which engineers believe would be safer for the increased bicycle and pedestrian use of the coast road.  A pier out into the ocean at that point has been proposed for a couple of decades, but never seems to make it into official plans.  Some land swaps between the city and the state are needed to make the traffic changes happen.  Eventually about 3 ½ miles of coastline from the Encina power plant south to the city’s boundary with Leucadia could become one long public park.  Any of these changes – and maybe even a city pier – would only come after many public meetings and community discussions.

Did you buy a Super Lotto ticket at a 7-Eleven in Chatsworth six months ago?  Somebody did.  And if they don’t contact state lotto officials by 5p today, they’ll be sacrificing $63m.  It’s not as if nobody’s tried.  A lawsuit was filed yesterday by a man who turned in what he claims was the winning ticket and that he was told he would be paid.  Lottery officials later told him it was too damaged to be processed.  He’s asking a judge to force the California Lottery to pay up.  The lottery says it routinely receives questionable claims and thoroughly investigates all winners of large jackpots.  If today’s deadline passes without a bona fide winner, this would be the largest unclaimed lottery prize in state history.



In the NFL – Sunday – Super Bowl 50 – Kickoff at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara is at 3:30 on CBS with Carolina against Denver.  Carolina is coming off its best regular season in franchise history with a 15 and 1 record.  They blew out the Cardinals in the NFC Championship game two weeks ago.  Denver has momentum, finishing what looked like a lackluster season strong with a 12 and 4 record, led by veteran quarterback Peyton Manning.  The halftime show will feature Coldplay, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars.

In the NBA – Last night, Golden State’s Steph Curry made 11 3-pointers and scored 51 points to lead the Warriors past the Wizards 134-121.  36 of those points came in the first half.  That was Curry’s best first half ever.  His performance overshadowed Washington’s John Wall who had a season-best 41 points for the losers.

The visiting Minnesota Timberwolves edged the Clippers last night 108-102.  LA had led by 2 at the half.  The win snaps a 14-game losing streak against LA at Staples Center.  Atlanta demolished the hapless 76ers 124-86.  Boston over Detroit 102-95.  Indiana, Oklahoma City, Miami, San Antonio, Utah, and Chicago all won their games.  Just four games tonight including the Lakers at New Orleans.

In college basketball – All the top-ranked teams that had games won against unranked opponents last night.  Tonight, #8 Texas A&M is at Vanderbilt and #16 Oregon hosts Colorado.  Cal State San Marcos hosts Cal State Dominguez Hills tonight.  The San Diego State Aztecs next game is Saturday hosting New Mexico.

In the NHL – Last night, the Sabres beat the Canadiens in Montreal 4-2, Tampa beat the visiting Red Wings 3-1, and Calgary blew out the visiting Hurricanes 4-1.  Twelve games tonight including the Ducks traveling crosstown to play the Kings.

In the minors – The San Diego Gulls host Stockton tomorrow night

In baseball –

In golf – The Phoenix Open got underway this morning.  Phil Mickelson shared the early lead through ten with Ireland’s Shane Lowry at 5-under par.  Rickie Fowler and Daniel Berger were one stroke back.

The market’s fairly flat today … the blue chips are up a little, the broader market is down slightly.  Gold is up another $16 today to over $1,157 an ounce.  Oil is down slightly at $31.72 a barrel.

San Diego’s Burnham Moores Institute issued its latest Index of Leading Economic Indicators for San Diego County.  The index rose 0.2% in December, down slightly from the 0.7% rise in November.  Sharp increases in residential building permits and a better jobs picture led the increases and helped reverse the downward trend the index had taken from July through September.

GoDaddy.commade its mark on the consumer consciousness with Super Bowl ads that get talked about at the water cooler.  Many of its ads featured NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, who is still the company’s celebrity spokesperson.  After achieving an 80% consumer awareness level thanks to its Super Bowl ads over the last ten years, the website domain company has not purchased any time this year.  They got in trouble last year for spoofing Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” commercial by showing a lost puppy reunited with its owner, only to be sold online.



Three new movies are going into wide release tomorrow.  “The Choice” is a romantic drama starring Alexandria Daddario and Benjamin Walker.  “Hail Caesar!” is a comedy by the Coen Brothers with an all-star cast including George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, and Josh Brolin.  And “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is pretty much what it sounds like – a spoof of a couple of genres.

The Valley News has an extensive photo album and stories about the ongoing renovation of the historic Vail Ranch headquarters and museum along Margarita Road at the Redhawk Towne Center.  A couple of restaurants and a riding tack business are already lined up to become tenants.


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

The Kitchen is the place where more fires happen than any other room in the house.  To avoid cooking fires…

  • Don’t wear loose clothing or let sleeves dangle when cooking
  • If you leave the kitchen unattended, even for a moment, turn off the stove
  • Check food regularly while cooking
  • Use a timer to remember that the stove or oven is on
  • Keep children away from the cooking area
  • Keep anything flammable away from the stove, including wooden utensils, pot holders, towels and curtains
  • Keep cooking surfaces clean to prevent grease buildup
  • Buy and keep a fully-charged grease fire-rated extinguisher in the kitchen
  • Treat minor cooking burns by running cool water over the skin for up to 20 minutes.  Don’t use cold or ice water.  The extreme cold constricts blood vessels and that can worsen the injury

These tips were provided by the American Red Cross, the National Fire Protection Association and the Pala Safety Committee.
