PALA TODAY – Thursday 7/21/16 – PT will not be broadcast or published Fri 7/22, returning Mon 7/25

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 temperature hit an unofficial high of 101 degrees here at the Rez Radio studios yesterday and the hottest weather this week is yet to come.  A heat advisory for parts of San Diego and all of Riverside County will last through Sunday evening.  The full forecast is coming up. (below)

Makes you want to head to the beach, doesn’t it?  Things aren’t perfect there either.  The city of Oceanside is criticizing this year’s harbor dredging project and urging the Army Corps of Engineers to replace the contractor responsible before next year’s dredging project begins.  Work on the annual job of removing sand from the mouth of Oceanside Harbor to keep the depth at about 25 feet and depositing removed material on city beaches to the south is usually done in the spring and completed by Memorial Day.  This year it didn’t begin until June 6 when the harbor’s entrance reached a dangerously shallow 10 feet of depth.  The city is alleging that contractor CJW Construction doesn’t have the proper equipment and has caused safety and access problems for both boaters and beachgoers.  It’s also doubtful the contractor will meet its August 4th deadline for moving all of this year’s contracted 260k cubic yards of sand.  The Army Corp is aware of the issues with CJW with whom they have a $5m one-year contract with an option for two more years at $11.5m.

About 1,300 Southern California Edison customers in Murrieta were without power late yesterday morning.  The outage was first reported at about 11:25a.  The cause was not disclosed, but power to most, if not all customers was restored before 1p.

The city of Hemet is reeling from three unrelated violent deaths within just a few hours earlier this week.  From Monday evening through early Tuesday, 17-year old bicyclist Andrew Rodriguez was struck by a vehicle whose occupants’ police believed he’d argued with.  Suspects in that incident remain at large, though Rodriguez’ family have released surveillance images they believe show the vehicle involved.  35-year old Christopher Maynard was shot during an argument with a relative, who later turned himself in to police.  And 35-year old Jason Popovich was found dead in the street in the Valle Vista area, east of Hemet.  A suspect was arrested in that incident Tuesday night.  A recent ballot measure which would have raised the local sales tax by 1% and raised $10m to pay for more police officers and firefighters and better equip both departments failed last month by 600 votes.  The Hemet city council will discuss adding a similar measure to the November ballot.

One of six individuals recently indicted by California Attorney General Kamala Harris for allegedly operating a mortgage fraud scheme in Southern California is from Fallbrook.  Marcus Robinson and five others were arrested and Robinson was arraigned last week in San Diego Superior Court on 135 felony charges including conspiracy, grand theft, filing false or forged documents and identity theft.  The defendants convinced homeowners upside down on their mortgages to stop making payments and instead pay them a $3500 administrative fee and $1000 a month.  The defendants then filed false deeds with county recorders and bogus petitions and court pleadings without actually halting any foreclosures, resulting in $4m in losses.  The scam included properties in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and LA counties.

The city of Carlsbad is proceeding this week with a plan to use herbicide to kill off a grove of non-native Mexican fan palms and Brazilian pepper trees in the Lake Calavera Preserve.  The one-acre grove will be left to dry out and die, then be cut up and hauled away in September.  The area will then be replanted with native sycamores, cottonwoods, oaks and willows.  Residents have expressed concern over toxicity of the herbicide to wildlife and groundwater. Others wonder if the efforts will wasted since there are so many of the offending trees on nearby private property spreading seeds right back to that spot in the preserve.



In Major League Baseball – The Padres played a double header in St. Louis yesterday to make up for a rain delayed game Tuesday.  They lost the opener – the make-good from Tuesday 4-2 with hardly anybody in the stands.  The scheduled night game didn’t go much better with former Padre Jedd Gyorko hitting two homers off his former team and accounting for all three runs scored.  Final score 3-2, leaving just today’s game for San Diego to avoid a sweep.  It was Gyorko’s fifth consecutive game with a homer off his former team.  He’s batting .619 against the Padres this year.  The Angels knocked off the Rangers thanks in part to a 3-run homer by Jefry Marte in the bottom of the first, completing the sweep in Anaheim, winning their sixth game in a row 7-4 and in doing so, pulling themselves out of last place in the AL West.  The Dodgers got thumped by the Nationals in Washington 8-1 last night.  In today’s day game, the Nationals’ undefeated starter Stephen Strasburg was going for his 14th win against no losses.  He got that first loss as the Dodgers beat the Nationals 6-3.

In the standings, the Dodgers are closing the gap on first place San Francisco, who’ve lost their last five in a row.  The Dodgers now trail by 4 games.  The Padres are in fourth place, 16 games off the pace and one game ahead of Arizona.  Chicago continues to lead the NL Central division by seven games over St. Louis.  The Nationals are in first in the East by 5 games over Miami.  In the American League, the Angels are now one game ahead of last-place Oakland and 11 ½ games off the pace set by first-place Texas.  Cleveland leads the AL Central by 7 ½ over Detroit.  And the only really competitive race continues to be the AL East with Boston taking over first place by a half game over Baltimore, who’ve lost their last four games. 

The Angels have today off and the Padres finish their series in St. Louis today at 4:15p. 

In the Minors – The Storm had yesterday off and take their 8-game win stream into a seven-game home stand against Rancho Cucamonga beginning tonight.

In Olympic Sports – Russia has lost its appeal against the Olympic ban of its track and field athletes.  The Court of Arbitration for Sport today rejected the appeal of 68 Russian athletes to overturn the ruling by the IAAF over state-sponsored doping.  Today’s decision is not binding on the International Olympic Committee, but it could add pressure on the IOC to exclude Russia completely from next month’s Rio Games. 

In golf – At the Canadian Open in Oakville, Ontario, Luke List and Kelly Kraft had the early lead in today’s opening round at 6-under par 66.

Following a meeting by the university presidents from the Big 12 Conference in Dallas on Tuesday, officials said the conference is vigorously exploring expansion to possibly as many as 14 schools, possibly as soon as next year.  Among the dozen or so candidate schools being considered is San Diego State.  The Aztecs may not be a leading contender, but Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby and SDSU athletic director Jim Sterk are old friends from their Pac 10 days.  It’s a long shot, but worth it.  Their current league – the Mountain West pays about $1.5m a year in television revenue.  Big 12 schools get between $20m and $25m.   



Stocks were down about a third of a point as of midday trading today.  Gold was up $11 to $1,330 an ounce.  Oil was down almost a dollar to just under $45 a barrel. 

Sales of existing homes rose just over 1% from a year ago to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.57m in June, according to the National Association of Realtors.  That’s the strongest it’s been since February of 2007.  The other big news was that first time buyers now account for one third of all purchases with the share of investor purchases declining to 11% - the lowest that’s been since 2009 and signaling a more normal housing market.  The share of distressed property sales continues to decline.  It’s currently at 6%, down from 8% one year ago.  The challenge now for the realty industry is affordability.  The median national price for resales is now $247k – 4.8% higher than one year ago.  In San Diego County, that median price is almost exactly double the national average.

General Mills announced today it may be cutting 1,400 jobs as it closes and sells plants.  They tentatively plann to close their Vineland, New Jersey Progresso soup plant, losing 370 positions.  And the company will sell its dry baking mix plant in Martel, Ohio for $18m cash.  That one could affect 180 jobs, though the new operator is interested in interviewing a majority of the current employees.  In May, General Mills issued a voluntary recall of its Gold Medal, Wondra, and Signature Kitchen brands of flour over E. coli contamination concerns.  Plant closures in Brazil and China account for most of the other job losses.

General Motors today posted a 157% increase in profit for the second quarter compared with the same period last year.  The numbers easily exceed Wall Street expectations.  The automaker cited the shift from cars to trucks and SUVs in the U.S., rising sales in China and improved conditions in Western Europe for its success.



College just became a little more affordable for students of the San Marcos Unified School District.  The Palomar College Governing Board recently approved a memorandum of understanding between the college, The Palomar College Foundation, and the San Marcos School District to provide all eligible graduating high school seniors in the district with free tuition for up to two years while pursuing an associate degree, transfer requirements, or a certificate program.  That’s up to $1,200 total for two consecutive years from The San Marcos Promise and Palomar College Foundation beginning in the fall 2017.

Three new movies open in wide release tomorrow – “Star Trek Beyond” starring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock is the latest in one of the most successful movie franchises in history.  This is number 13 and the third in the current reboot series opening on 3,800 screens.  “Ice Age – Collision Course” is the fifth in that series with the usual all-star voice cast for the cartoon animal stars.  It opens on just under 4k screens.  And supernatural horror flick “Lights Out” starring Maria Bello opens on 2,900 screens.

The Fox TV stand-up comedy series “Laughs” has been renewed for a third season and will film several episodes at Pechanga Resort.  The first session will be Thursday, July 28.  Tickets are free but must be reserved.  Each comic gets about five minutes to deliver their best material, about one to two minutes of which gets included in the show, broadcast in Southern California on Fox 5 San Diego, KTTV channel 11 and KCOP My13 in LA.  Pechanga has been the site of several recent “reality” series including “Cake Masters”, “Storage Wars” and “Botched”.
