LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES
People protesting the Grand Jury findings in Ferguson, Missouri shut down I-5 in La Jolla this morning, backing up traffic for several miles in both directions at the peak of rush hour. Dozens marched onto the northbound lanes at La Jolla Village Drive just before 7a. One driver got out of his car and physically confronted a man with a bullhorn. CHP moved the protest to the shoulder about a half hour later. Demonstrators made their way to the UCSD campus by 8:15. This morning’s disruption followed two rallies last night in downtown San Diego and City Heights. The City Heights protest temporarily shut down I-15 in San Diego. http://www.10news.com/news/ferguson-protesters-block-i-5-in-la-jolla
If you’re traveling long distance today, check those flight schedules. Over 500 U.S. flights have been cancelled and over 1,700 delayed today due to weather. That includes a few at Lindbergh Field, LAX and Ontario. www.FlightAware.com is one way to monitor those flight statistics.
United Airlines has announced that it plans to eliminate daily service from Carlsbad’s Palomar-McClellan Aiport to LAX in May, leaving the airport with no major commercial carrier. United Express will be moving to a new fleet of jets that can’t land on Palomar’s short runway, according to a spokeswoman for operator Skywest. The runway at Palomar is roughly half the length of that at Lindbergh Field. Eight charter and air taxi services operate out of Palomar. American Eagle and U.S. Airways Express used to offer flights to LAX and Phoenix, respectively. Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce CEO, Ted Owen says he wouldn’t be surprised if another airline stepped in to take United’s place. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/nov/19/united-airlines-palomar-airport-flying-faa-airline/
Riverside County Supervisor Kevin Jeffries is recommending individual departments shoulder the financial responsibility for lawsuits. The full board yesterday recommended some changes but stopped short of Jeffries’ plan. Currently, all county agencies make a contribution to the county’s risk management fund. Jeffries is concerned about the increasing amounts being drained from that fund due to civil litigation. The administrative protocol approved by the board will require department heads to notify the county’s lawyers and HR of “significant incidents” that could lead to a lawsuit, prompt investigation of such incidents, regular reports to the board on resolved and pending litigation, and other measures to “increase accountability and reduce the frequency of future liability and litigation”. Riverside Sheriff Stan Sniff opposes Jeffries full-responsibility concept saying he would be exposed to “civil vulnerability” if he had to publicly argue the details of cases involving deputies. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/82118/
After talking about it all year, the Supervisors voted 3-1 yesterday to increase fees on developers with projects in unincorporated Riverside County. Supervisors Ashley, Stone and Benoit voted in favor. Jeffries voted against and took issue with the idea that commercial developers pay nothing towards the maintenance and improvement of regional parks and trails. Several residents spoke against the new Developer Impact Fee schedule, saying it was too generous to developers. Under the county’s new DIF schedule revenues would phase upwards from the current $200m annually to $367m within two years. That’s still significantly below pre-recession levels when fees were slashed to stimulate the economy. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/82116/
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission announced Monday that the agency selling electricity from the Hoover Dam has agreed to settle for its role in the September, 2011 blackout that affected 7m people in Southern California, Arizona and Baja. Because of Western-DSW’s status as a federal agency under the Department of Energy, it won’t pay a fine. Instead, the agency will improve its grid reliability analysis and add a real-time monitoring tool to share with other agencies. The federal investigation into the 2011 blackout blamed poor preparation and awareness of grid conditions by several utilities and grid managers throughout the region. SoCal Edison was fined $650k last month for its role in the incident. Arizona Public Service agreed to a $3.25m civil penalty and the Imperial Irrigation District settled for $12m. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/nov/24/more-settlements-southwest-blackout/

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING
Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of November.
Deep frying of holiday turkeys has become more popular in recent years. With it come some safety issues. Thousands of turkey fryer fires are reported every year. Remember these safety tips:
- Set up your fryer outdoors, at least ten feet away from the house
- Keep children and pets away from the fryer
- Have a fire extinguisher standing by when using a turkey fryer
- Oil must be even and steady at all times. Set up on a flat, level surface and carefully gauge the amount of oil needed
- Only fry a turkey that is thawed and dry. Hot oil and water are an explosive combination. Water in hot oil will bubble over, spilling onto the burner where the oil will catch fire.
- Keep track of the oil temperature. Many fryers don’t have their own temperature gauge.
- Be careful touching the fryer, lid and handle. They can be hot enough to cause burns.
These tips provided by the U.S. Fire Administration, PBS, 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 all of Pala in effect every day until further notice.
