PALA TODAY – Tuesday 1/27/2015

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.



The predicted record-setting blizzard in the Northeast is falling short of dire predictions.  It’s still expected to leave up to two feet of snow in some areas, but not New York City.  Eastern Long Island and southern New England are catching the worst of it.

Locally, Pala got a pretty good rain yesterday afternoon.  North County storm totals ranged from a few hundredths of inch at the beaches to a little under a half inch on Palomar Mountain.  The observatory got a third of an inch, as did Rincon and eastern Valley Center.  Temecula, Murrieta, Couser Canyon and Rainbow had a quarter inch each.  Fallbrook and Escondido had .20 hundredths.  Bonsall had .17 hundredths.  Vail Lake had 4 tenths of an inch and Sage reported just over a half inch.  Another much weaker storm is on the way for this weekend.  The full forecast is coming up. (below)

There was a fatal car crash in yesterday afternoon’s rain on Sage Road about 4 miles southeast of Diamond Valley Lake.  An unidentified driver lost control on a rain slick curve, over-corrected and rolled the car.  As it rolled, the roof hit a tree, collapsing it into the drivers’ compartment.

Wet roads may have been a factor in a big rig jack knife that blocked both directions of East Mission Road in Fallbrook yesterday afternoon around 3:30.

An 18-year old Riverside man was arrested for felony DUI after a solo vehicle wreck on northbound I-15 in Murrieta Sunday left one of his passengers with fatal injuries.  Calvin Alexander Cerda sustained moderate injuries after allegedly falling asleep at the wheel approaching Murrieta Hot Springs Road.  He awoke as the truck began swerving.  The truck he was driving overturned multiple times, landing in the center median.  Three back seat passengers were not wearing seat belts.  Two of them were ejected from the truck.

28-year old Temecula soccer coach, Reedham Bansi Patel was booked into Southwest Detention Center last week following a two-week investigation for commercial burglary, check forgery and fraud.  The investigation began December 31st after representatives of a local adult soccer league reported Patel had bounced checks written to the league.  Patel is free on bail.  His lawyer says it’s all a misunderstanding and that the complaint may have been the result of an argument between Patel and another person involved with the league.

A customer in a Vista restaurant was shot as the place was being robbed last night.  The armed thief entered Bistro 760 on East Vista Way and demanded money at about 8:20p.  Investigators believe the shooting was an unfortunate random act.  The woman’s injuries were non-life threatening.  The robber got away with cash.  He’s described as a 35 to 45-year old Latino, between 5 foot 6 and 5 foot 9 and about 165 pounds.

The San Manuel tribe has made a second $6m donation to the fledgling FNX, or First Nations Experience television network, operated out of the studios of public television station KVCR in San Bernardino.  FNX went on the air just over three years ago on a sub-channel of KVCR.  It now has eleven affiliate stations.  The amount of the gift is quite large by local public broadcasting standards.  Even one million dollar gifts are rare at the local level.  The tribe’s latest donation will go mainly to expand programming content.

There’s repaving work today on Highway 76 from mile marker 23 to 35 in Pauma Valley with one-way escorted traffic until 6 tonight.  Expect delays up to a half hour.  More of the same is scheduled for tomorrow and Thursday.



In the NFL – Ted Wells, the investigator hired by the league to get to the bottom of the underinflated football scandal from the AFC Championship Game says the full investigation will take several more weeks, but that particular interest is being paid to a Patriots locker room attendant who slipped into a bathroom for about 90 seconds with all 24 balls provided by the two teams on his way to the field.

Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft made a surprise appearance at the team’s news conference yesterday to say that the NFL will owe his team a big apology if its investigation doesn’t uncover any wrongdoing in the Deflate-gate controversy.  He stopped short of suggesting “double or nothing”.

And the media circus that is the week before Super Bowl is in full swing with JJ Watt from the Houston Texans showing off his jumping skills on the Jimmy Kimmel show – in a suit and tie no less!  Marshawn Lynch still won’t speak to the real press, but does speak at a fake press conference in the latest ad campaign for Skittles.  Spoiler alert – when online, he prefers cat videos.

Meanwhile fans and Vegas oddsmakers are betting on New England in Sunday’s big game.

In the NBA – Both the games scheduled for last night in New York were postponed due to the blizzard – that was Portland at Brooklyn, and the Sacramento Kings at the Knicks.  The Clippers staged a 4th quarter comeback to beat the visiting Denver Nuggets 102-98.  The Lakers host Washington tonight.

Kobe Bryant will have surgery tomorrow to repair damage to his right rotator cuff.  That will probably keep him out the rest of the season, his 19th in the NBA.  It’ll also be the third consecutive season he’s ended early with injuries.

In college hoops – Just two top 25 games last night - #13 North Carolina beat Syracuse 93-83 and #15 Iowa State beat #19 Texas 89-86.  Tonight, San Diego State hosts Fresno State

In the NHL – The second half of the season begins tonight with the 1st place Anaheim Ducks at Vancouver.  Nashville trails Anaheim by three points and leads the Western Conference Central division.  A point back, Tampa Bay is first in the Eastern Conference Atlantic division.  One more point back, the New York Islanders are tops in the Metropolitan division – 4th place overall.

The Anaheim Ducks organization will buy AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals and move the team to San Diego this fall to be part of the league’s new Pacific division.  The AHL board of governors approved the deal Sunday.  Teams will be based in San Diego, Bakersfield, Ontario, Stockton and San Jose.  All the minor league franchises are being relocated by their NHL affiliates.  The Ducks new team will probably play at Valley View Center – the old Sports Arena, which hasn’t seen ice hockey since the Gulls.  The official AHL announcement of all of this will be Thursday.

In High School prep sports:

Fallbrook – girls JV water polo all day at the San Diego Open; soccer against Mission Vista beginning at 3:30, boys hosting, girls away; JV basketball at Mission Vista, boys at 4p, girls at 5:30; varsity basketball hosting Mission Vista, girls at 5:30, boys at 7

Great Oak – girls water polo at Murrieta Mesa beginning at 3:30



Stocks are down significantly today – at noon our time, almost 1% for the S&P 500 and a little over 1% for blue chips.  Crude oil is back above $46 a barrel.  Today’s market is being driven by a drop in durable-goods orders and disappointing results from big guns like Caterpillar and Microsoft, heightening concern about the strength of the economy.  Microsoft is down 9%.  Caterpillar down 7 ½%.  Nine of ten main industries in the S&P 500 declined today.  Losses in the tech sector were the most since 2011.

A travel ban was lifted this morning as the big New York blizzard turned out to be less than forecast.  There had been talk of shutting down the New York Stock Exchange today.  That hadn’t happened due to snow since 1996.

Multinational corporations flooded the market with fourth-quarter results today as Federal Reserve officials gather in Washington for a two-day policy meeting.  They try to decide if falling oil prices, the economic slowdown in Europe and possible fallout from the Greek elections will threaten U.S. recovery as it considers railing interest rates.

Apple Pay, the company’s payments service launched three months ago is making progress where other mobile wallets have failed.  People are actually starting to use it.  MacDonald’s and Walgreens were both early adopters and say that twice as many shoppers are using wireless readers at their stores since Apple Pay arrived.  Previous efforts by Google, eBay and others failed because consumers didn’t see the advantage over swiping a card.  Tech experts attribute the difference this time to Apple’s loyal iPhone following, a massive marketing push from banks and credit card issuers, and security concerns about cards following breaches at Target, Home Depot and other major retailers.  Apple stock is down 1.5% today, but so are most stocks – especially techs.

More good news for Apple – strong sales of iPhones are lifting the company close to Samsung as the world’s top seller of smart phones.  Samsung took that title from Apple in the third quarter of 2011, though it still wasn’t as profitable.  Samsung shipped about 78m smart phones in the third quarter of 2014, good for about a 25% share of the global market, down from 34% a year earlier according to research firm, Canalys.

If you have dealings with the federal government, whether it’s Social Security or the IRS, prepare to be even more annoyed than ever before.  According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, our satisfaction with the federal government has hit an all-time low.  Our government now scores 64.4 out of a possible 100 in terms of customer satisfaction.  The average for all industries is 75.  It’s worse than airlines or even the cable company.  ACSI has been keeping track since 2007.



With gasoline prices headed for new lows, this is a great time to buy a hybrid or all-electric.  No, really. Because gas prices are so low, Ford’s Focus Electric is currently selling at an average discount of 16% below MSRP.  TrueCar, Inc. has it at the top of its list of best deals for January.  Toyota Prius buyers can expect to get an average of 10% off the Prius Two’s $25,025 sticker price this month.  Do you really want to spend the extra to get a super-efficient hybrid or EV right now?  Probably not right now.  But low gas prices aren’t going to last forever.  Certainly not as long as your new car purchase.  Experts say look past the next few months or years when making the decision to go green with a new car.

And what about the future of gasoline prices?  The analysts at say we’re probably at the low point right now.  Market forces are keeping retail prices stable even though wholesale prices have gone up a little lately.  Gas Buddy expects the average price of a gallon of regular to increase about ten cents next month and 20 cents each of the next two months after that to a high for the year of about $3 a gallon in May.  They’re then predicting a slow decline back to about where it is now for next winter.

Though the average price of a gallon of regular is stable at 2.43 today in San Diego County, prices at the cheapest stations in Escondido have risen a bit.  Several were at $2.09 over the weekend.  Today the lowest is $2.15 at United Oil on West Mission.  Costco in San Marcos jumped ten cents to $2.19.  In the Temecula Valley, the lowest price today is $2.29 at Costco, Sam’s Club and Mobil on Los Alamos.

At the movies this past weekend, “American Sniper” continued to rake in the bucks.  It’s already surpassed the $200m mark in just its second week of wide release.  Good word of mouth brought the Bradley Cooper portrayal of the military’s most deadly sniper another $64m in business, more than four times the amount earned by the #2 movie, “The Boy Next Door”, a new release starring Jennifer Lopez,Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenowith.  Next came “Paddington” and “The Wedding Ringer”, both in their second week.  “Taken 3” is at 5th place in week 3.  After 9 weeks, “The Imitation Game”, the World War II code breaking story remains in 6th place, same as last week.  New releases, the animated “Strange Magic” and “Mortdecai” starring Johnny Depp opened to very poor reviews and slow business at 7th and 9th place with $5.5m and $4.2m in ticket sales respectively.  The 8th and 10th place movies this past weekend were “Selma” and “Into the Woods”.


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.


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.  Today (1/27) is a permissible burn day in Pala based on air quality standards.  There is a controlled burn planned today along Lilac Extension.

Wednesday’s (1/28) menu for the Pala Senior lunch program – rosemary chicken, peas & carrots, salad, and yogurt
