LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES
The victim of Monday’s fatal shooting in Pala has been identified as 58-year old Bruce Molina, a resident of Pala. Investigators say an unknown suspect or suspects fired several rounds into a vehicle on Ortega Road near Second at about 12:15a Monday, hitting Molina several times. Though they didn’t release any other details, a spokesman for the Sheriff’s homicide detail says they have several leads and are confident they will solve the case. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/apr/28/pala-shooting-homicide-molina/
There was an accident involving a school bus with 50 students on board this morning in Temecula. At about 7:10a, the bus collided with a car on Nicholas Road near Santa Gertrudis Creek Trail. CHP reports there were no injuries. http://www.pe.com/articles/students-801342-bus-school.html
A bank robbery attempt at the Wells Fargo Bank on Sky Canyon Drive just outside the Murrieta and Temecula city limits yesterday at 11a sparked hours of ground and air searches yesterday afternoon near the intersection of Murrieta Hot Springs and Winchester Roads. No money was taken and no one was hurt. A search which may or may not have been related at about the same time ten miles to the south, caused a half hour lockdown of Great Oak High School between 2:30p and 3p. Deputies were searching for a suspicious person near the school and didn’t want students walking through the perimeter of the search. http://www.pe.com/articles/school-801258-holdup-drive.html
A 20-year old San Diego woman was shot in the leg early this morning in a struggle over a pistol at keg party on Helmsdale Road in San Marcos. Deputies arrived at about 3:30a. After identification by party guests, a 21-year old San Diego man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and other weapons charges. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/apr/28/san-marcos-argument-shooting/
A bill currently before the state legislature would double the pay for North County Transit District board members. The board is composed of nine members from eight North County cities as well as the county Supervisor from the 5th district - currently Bill Horn. The bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman Marie Waldron from Escondido, would increase board member pay from the current $75 per day spent at board or committee meetings to $150. It would also cap the maximum per month at $750, up from the current $300. Waldron, who served on the board from 1998 to 2002 says the increase would be the first for board members since 1988 and brings compensation in line with that of other regional boards. A provision that would have increased the level at which NCTD contracts need to be put out to competitive bid from the current $10k to $50k has been removed from the bill. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/apr/27/nctd-raise/
Discount grocer ALDI will open its first San Diego County store next month in Vista. The location at 1750 University Drive will be one of seven grand openings for ALDI on May 19 and part of the German-based company’s plans for 45 new stores in California this year. The chain, which relies on mostly house brands, small stores with fewer items than supermarkets, and no frills currently has over 1,500 stores in 33 states with plans to have over 2,000 stores open by the end of 2018. http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/German-Supermarket-Aldi-Opens-1st-San-Diego-County-Store-Vista-377131911.html
The city of Menifee has announced it is seeking public comment on a proposal to build a four lane overpass for Holland Road over the 215 freeway. The comment period for the Draft Initial Study with Proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration will last until May 24th. The $18m project would provide a badly needed third connection between the city’s west and east sides as an alternative to busy Scott and Newport Roads. Some residents near Holland Road aren’t happy about it. http://www.pe.com/articles/road-801359-public-menifee.html
The NBA playoffs – Golden State knocked off the Rockets in Oakland last night to win the round 1 playoff series four games to one. Final score 114-81 – a 33-point blowout even without the injured Stephen Curry. Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 27 points. The Clippers have now fallen behind Portland three games to two. They lost last night at Staples Center 108-98. LA is working without its two star players. Griffin and Paul and both out with injuries for the rest of the playoffs, which might only be one more game tomorrow night in Portland. In Miami, the Heat lost ground to Charlotte with a 90-88 loss. Charlotte leads three games to two. Just one game tonight – Atlanta at Boston with the Hawks leading three games to two.
In the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs – Last night in Anaheim, once again, the Ducks lost a seven-game series. Nashville got out to a 2 goal lead in the 1st period and the Ducks never could catch up. It wasn’t for lack of trying. Predators’ goalie Pekka Rinne had to make 36 saves. Final score Nashville 2, the Ducks 1. It was Nashville’s first-ever Game 7 win. http://espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=400874129
In Tampa, the New York Islanders won the first game of Round 2 against the Lightning last night. Round 2 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Capitals gets underway tonight in Washington.
In the minors – The Calder Cup first round series between the San Diego Gulls and the Texas Stars is tied at a game apiece. Games 3 through 5 are at Valley View Arena beginning tonight. http://www.sandiegogulls.com/gulls-open-playoffs-with-3-1-win-in-texas/
In Major League Baseball – The Padres lost their fifth straight as the Giants won their fifth out of the last six and completed a sweep in San Francisco yesterday afternoon 13-9. It was anything but a blowout. After falling behind 3-0 in the 1st, San Diego came roaring back with four runs in the top of the third. Ten runs in the next four at-bats for San Francisco however, proved insurmountable with San Diego only able to manage one in the 6th, 3 in the 7th and one in the 9th. The Angels topped the Royals 4-2 in Anaheim on a two-run homer by Mike Trout. The Dodgers were shut out 2-0 by the Marlins. That series continues today. The Padres and Angels have today off.
The game everyone was anticipating in Chicago was rained out. Cubs ace Jake Arrieta will get an extra day of rest before trying to become the second pitcher in history to throw consecutive no-hitters. The Cubs currently have the best record in the Majors at 15 and 5.
In the Minors – The Lake Elsinore Storm were demolished by the visiting High Desert Mavericks last night 10-2. They’ll try to avoid a sweep in tonight’s final game of the series. Lancaster comes into town for a weekend series beginning tomorrow.
In the NFL – The draft is today and Raiders owner Mark Davis says he now wants to move the team to Las Vegas and is willing to spend a half-billion dollars as part of a deal for a new stadium there. Davis made his announcement alongside soccer star David Beckham and billionaire casino operator Sheldon Adelson. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/15420427/oakland-raiders-owner-mark-davis-says-wants-move-team-las-vegas
No one is sure who the Chargers will select with their #3 overall pick today. The likely possibilities are Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, defensive end Joey Bosa out of Ohio State, Oregon defensive end DeForest Buckner, cornerback Jalen Ramsey from Florida State, or Mississippi outside tackle Laremy Tunsil. http://espn.go.com/blog/san-diego-chargers/post/_/id/15918/ronnie-stanley-joins-four-other-players-in-the-mix-for-chargers-at-no-3
In golf – Round 1 of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended due to weather before all but a handful of players managed to complete their round. Brian Stuard was in the lead at 8-under par through 17. http://espn.go.com/golf/leaderboard

Apple sales in China are tanking – a large part of the company’s poor results in the most recent quarterly report. And it doesn’t appear to be just cyclical or isolated. Chinese consumers are buying more phones from local manufacturers, so Apple isn’t just losing business, it’s losing market share. And the Chinese government is clamping down on distributed content, which was supposed to be Apple’s next big revenue driver. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/apple-is-performing-terribly-in-china-but-its-not-because-of-the-economy-2016-04-27
Comcast has reached an agreement to swallow up DreamWorks pictures for $3.8b. Today’s announcement sent DreamWorks shares soaring 24%. The deal came just two days after news broke of the intention. The deal, expected to close by the end of the year, has Comcast paying $41 cash for each outstanding share of the filmmaker – that’s a 27% premium over yesterday’s closing price for DreamWorks. Some analysts think the company is overvalued at that level. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/could-comcasts-38-billion-dreamworks-deal-be-a-mistake-2016-04-28
