PALA TODAY – Wednesday 4/23/14

The following items are part of “Pala Today” as heard this day at noon on PALA REZ RADIO™ 91.3 FM in Pala and worldwide online … click here to listen live

LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is warning residents about a phone scam in which callers impersonate actual Sheriff’s Department employees claiming to have “a warrant out for your arrest”.  The caller has some personal information on potential victims and asks for more as well as a credit or debit card number to avoid jail time or loss of drivers’ license.  The Sheriff’s department warns everyone that no deputy or employee will ever contact members of the public by phone demanding payment.  If you get such a call, hang up. http://apps.sdsheriff.net

The president of the Valley Center Fireworks event has set a deadline this Friday for obtaining a presenting or logistical sponsor for this year’s event.  Without it, Kelly Crews says this year’s show will have to be cancelled.  Fourth of July fireworks in Valley Center have been a tradition for the last 14 years with just two cancellations.  This year’s show is scheduled to take place at the high school. http://www.valleycenter.com/Articles-News-c-2014-04-16-87605.113122-No-sponsors-no-Fourth-of-July-fireworks.html

At tonight’s meeting, the Escondido City Council will consider a proposed gated community of 550 luxury homes overlooking the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.  The plan would require annexing 1,100 acres into the city limits.  A similar proposal by a different builder about a dozen years ago was shot down over environmental impacts and opposition from nearby residents.  Builder, Concordia Communities LLC would have to pay all costs for studies, staff and other application fees.  At least one environmental group is opposing Concordia’s plans. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/apr/22/safari-escondido-development-concordia/

An unidentified man was crushed and seriously injured by a trash dumpster at a Vista apartment complex just after 10 this morning.  An air ambulance landed in a parking lot at nearby Foothill Oak Elementary School to transport the victim to the hospital. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/apr/23/man-crushed-dumpster-seriously-injured-vista/

Riverside County Supervisors yesterday directed staff to compare local land use policies with those in Arizona and Nevada, which more aggressively promote “water conservation.”  Supervisors John Benoit and Marion Ashley noted that most of Southern California is being spared severe restrictions on water use thanks to extra supplies secured by the Metropolitan Water District.  But another year or two of below-normal rainfall could change that.  Benoit noted the differences in home landscaping in neighboring states even though our climates are substantially the same.  Residential water use in Southern California is about 75-80% for landscaping.  The report back to the board is due in 90 days. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/77709/

Caltrans is doing night construction on the 15 and 215 freeways all this week.  The 15 will be closed in both directions from Murrieta Hot Springs to California Oaks Road from 11p to 7a this Saturday night into Sunday morning and again Sunday night 9p until 5a Monday morning.  There will also be lane closures on the 15 in San Diego all this week near Mira Mesa Boulevard as work continues on the new Miramar College Transit Station exit.   www.caltrans.ca.gov http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/apr/22/caltrans-I-15-closure-freeway-mira-mesa-carpool/

 

SPORTS

In the NBA playoffs – The Pacers beat the Hawks to tie that series at a game apiece.  Same with the Raptors beating the Nets.  The Wizards go up two games to none with another win over the Bulls, 101-99 in Chicago.  Tonight, the Heat host the Bobcats, the Spurs host Dallas, and the Rockets host Portland.

In Major League Baseball – Angels beat the Nationals 7-2, the Dodgers lost to the Phillies 3-2 in 10 and the Padres won a 12 inning game in Milwaukee 2-1 on a Chase Headley home run.  The Padres are currently a half game below .500.  The Dodgers record is 12 and 9 and the Angels are at .500 with 10 wins and 10 losses.  The same teams play again tonight.

The highlight of the Angels game yesterday in Washington was Albert Pujols as he hit his 499th and 500th career home runs.  He’s the 26th Major League player and the third youngest to achieve that benchmark.  He’s also the only one who hit both #499 and #500 in the same game.  http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/mlb/story/_/id/10824476/albert-pujols-los-angeles-angels-hits-500th-career-homer

In the minors – the Storm lost to Stockton 6-3.  Game three of four is tonight in Stockton.

In the NHL playoffs – Montreal won its series against Tampa in four straight games.  Last night’s final in Montreal was 4-3.  The Bruins shut out the Red Wings in Detroit 3-0 and take a two games to one lead in that series.  The Rangers beat the Flyers in Philadelphia 4-1 and take a two games to one lead there.  And the Kings lost their third straight to the visiting San Jose Sharks 4-3 in overtime.  Tonight, the Ducks are at Dallas, the Penguins are at Columbus, and the Blues are in Chicago.

LIFESTYLE

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of April:

It’s snake season.  Most bites occur between April and October.  Snakes are like people in that they stay put when the weather is hot, then get out and move around when the sun goes down.  That’s when man and snake often meet.  You don’t have to be paranoid about being bitten, but you do have to be careful.  You can’t completely eliminate snakes, but you can make their presence less likely:

  • Keep your yard and children’s play areas tidy.  Clear away undergrowth and piles of things that make good hiding places for snakes.
  • Keep walkways clear of brush, flowers and shrubs
  • Clean up spilled food, fruit that drops from trees and bird seed.  All of these attract rodents, which attract snakes
  • Tell children not to stick their hands down holes, under rocks or ledges, or even into brush.

Snakes can strike across a distance equal to about half their body length.  If you see a snake, stop and slowly move back the way you came.  Never try to step over a snake.

These tips are provided by the National Safety Council, the ASPCA 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.
