LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES
Almost fall-like weather expected for this weekend – just in time for the 9th annual Honoring Traditions Powwow here in Pala. Rez Radio will broadcast live from the arena beginning at 6p tomorrow; from about noon to midnight Saturday; and wrapping up from noon to 6 Sunday. The powwow features eight top drum groups and hundreds of the best dancers from all over the US and Canada. Parking and admission are free and open to everyone. The powwow grounds are about a half mile west of Pala Casino – 5 ½ miles east of I-15.
The weather has been much more accommodating the last week or so and as a result, there hasn’t been a lot of wildfire activity in San Diego or Riverside Counties since the Blue Cut Fire. But statewide, there are still 9 large wildfires burning a total of about 200k acres. 11,700 firefighters are currently deployed on those fires, the largest of which, the Sobrantes Fire at Big Sur in Monterey County has burned over 90k acres with at least 57 homes destroyed. (Calfire media release)
The milder weather is also helping with the grape harvest underway now in Temecula Wine Country. Growers say it’ll be a decent year, roughly on-par with last year in spite of the continuing drought which allows salts to build up in the soil and the June heatwave that saw temperatures consistently above 100. http://www.pe.com/articles/harvest-811477-grape-drake.html
Riverside County Supervisors this week scheduled a public forum for September 13 to hear comment for and against the proposed Temecula Valley Wine Country Marketing District. Under the plan which is similar to a business improvement district, hotels within Wine Country – currently 31 of them with more on the way – would be required to contribute 2% of gross receipts from overnight stays to the group who would then market the tourist destination. Funds would be paid quarterly to the county treasurer. It’s estimated the district would generate $188k annually. http://patch.com/california/temecula/public-hearing-set-planned-temecula-valley-wine-country-tourism-district
A light plane crashed off the end of the runway and flipped over after landing yesterday at Fallbrook Airpark. It happened just after 2p. The 79-year old pilot and his 77-year old companion were able to safely get out of the flipped-over Cessna on their own, uninjured. Both are Civil Air Patrol pilots and the plane, assigned to the California Wing of the Civil Air Patrol was on an “authorized proficiency flight” when it crashed. http://www.10news.com/news/plane-crash-lands-at-fallbrook-airport-082416
Police are looking for one or more suspects who stabbed a man outside a Carlsbad restaurant last evening. It happened in the parking lot behind Pizza Port in the 500 block of Carlsbad Village Drive at about 8:45p. Police responding to reports of a disturbance found a 26-year old man with multiple stab wounds. He was transported to Scripps Medical Center in La Jolla with minor injuries. Witnesses say the altercation involved multiple people. http://www.10news.com/news/man-stabbed-at-carlsbad-restaurant
Lake Elsinore Mayor Brian Tisdale announced last week that he is resuming his duties following a nearly two-month leave of absence. He had taken time off to, as he put it, “deal with family issues” following his arrest June 20th on suspicion of battery and vandalism. That case is still open with Tisdale’s next court appearance – a case status conference – scheduled for February 20th. No word on whether he has also resumed his work assisting county supervisor Chuck Washington. http://myvalleynews.com/local/lake-elsinore-mayor-resumes-duties-following-leave-absence/
The Valley Center Parks & Rec District has a new general manager. Darcy LaHaye was hired by the parks board last week, taking over for Doug Johnson who’d held the post for a decade. It’s a promotion for LaHaye, who’d been Johnson’s secretary since April. LaHaye and her family were Valley Center residents for about 20 years before relocating to Texas in 2014 and then returning last year. http://www.valleycenter.com/news/2016-08-25/Front_Page/New_parks_general_manager_takes_over.html
If you’re heading to Orange County this weekend, you might want to avoid Corona. Ongoing construction of the 91 freeway will include a full westbound closure from 10:30p Saturday night through noon Sunday for the removal of the old Maple Street overpass. Lane shifts with associated restriping will cause multiple lane closures in both directions both Saturday and Sunday nights. http://patch.com/california/temecula/s/fv4s6/traffic-alert-another-partial-shutdown-of-91-freeway-planned-this-weekend
A reminder that this coming Monday morning, August 28th from 5a until 11a, all fuel pumps at Pala Mini Mart will be closed for testing.
In Major League Baseball – The Padres lost to the Cubs 6-3 yesterday afternoon at Petco Park. In LA, Rich Hill pitched six shutout innings in his first start for the Dodgers. Giants’ starter Johnny Cueto had a no-hitter until Justin Turner hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth. It was Turner’s 20th since June 10th and it was the only score of the game as the Dodgers beat the Giants 1-0, extending their lead over San Francisco in the NL West to 3 games. In Toronto, Albert Pujols is now in 10th place on the all-time home run list. He pulled ahead of Mark McGwire with #584 last night as the Angels whupped the Blue Jays 8-2. Pujols and McGwire were both with St. Louis in 2001, which was Pujols rookie season and McGwire’s final season before his retirement. Last night Pujols had a season-high four-hit night. His first inning homer came just two pitches after Mike Trout hit a home run as well. It was the Angels first road win in 12 tries. Max Shoemaker pitched six shutout innings. The Dodgers and Angels respective series conclude tonight. The Padres have a travel day and open a series in Miami tomorrow.
The Chicago White Sox have announced a new stadium naming rights deal. Their ballpark, currently called U.S. Cellular Field will become Guaranteed Rate Field in November. Social media is having a field day – pun intended – noting that Guaranteed’s logo is an arrow pointing down … not exactly an inspiring message for a team that’s in fourth place and likely to miss the playoffs for the 10th time in 11 years. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/17385604/chicago-white-sox-ballpark-changing-name-guaranteed-rate-field
In the Minors – The Storm got out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first in Cucamonga last night. But it slipped away with a two-run single by Brandon Twinkron in the bottom of the 7th as the Quakes beat the Storm 4-2. They’ll try to avoid the sweep tonight before moving on to High Desert Friday for the final three road games of the season.
At the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, New York and Tennessee will meet in the U.S. Championship game Saturday. Yesterday, New York beat Bowling Green 13-10 and Tennesse topped Iowa 14-3 in a “mercy rule” shortened 5-inning game. Also Saturday, the international championship game will be Seoul, South Korea vs. San Nicolas, Mexico. The winners of those two games meet Sunday in the World Series Championship game.
In the NFL – Atlanta at Miami tonight at 5p televised on NBC – and Dallas at Seattle at 7p. The Rams are at Denver at 6p Saturday and the Chargers are in Minnesota at 10a Sunday. That will be televised on the Fox network.
The Chargers have withdrawn their offer to top draft pick Joey Bosa after his people declined to accept the team’s “last best offer” yesterday, saying failure to take it now means Bosa won’t be ready for the season opener and therefore won’t be earning the full amount offered this year. Among the sticking points, the timing of payment of a $17m signing bonus. The Chargers want to defer 15% of it until next March. And the Chargers are insisting on offset language – which 29 of the 31 first round draft picks this year do have in their contracts. Bosa is the only unsigned first-round draft pick from 2016. In a statement to media today, his representatives said the Chargers “have decided to manipulate facts and negotiate in the media”. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/17383258/san-diego-chargers-pull-offer-unsigned-draft-pick-joey-bosa
In golf – at the Barclays tournament in New York, Patrick Reed and Martin Laird share the first round lead at five-under par 66 with most of the field in the clubhouse. Jason Day is the defending champion. http://www.espn.com/golf/leaderboard
Local high school sports:
Bonsall – no scheduled games
Great Oak – football against Heritage at 4p, JV hosting, freshmen away; Tomorrow – varsity football hosting Heritage
Valley Center – no schedule published
Fallbrook – freshman football at Westview at 5p and water polo scrimmage at Rancho Bernardo; Tomorrow – JV and varsity football hosting Westview beginning at 4:30p
Stocks are down slightly again today. December gold is down $5 to $1,324.60 an ounce. That’s as low as it’s been in a month. Oil is up a few cents. At the Federal Reserve meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, yesterday, Dallas Fed president Robert Kaplan set the tone by saying the case is strengthening for an interest rate increase in the near future.
