LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES
Some parents kept children out of school today at Temescal Canyon High School in Lake Elsinore over rumors that began Friday about the possibility of shooting on campus today. Riverside Sheriff’s Deputies learned of the rumor circulating on social media Saturday. Investigators say the source of their information as well as the person who originally made the threat were both students at the school. Additional deputies were assigned to the school today and a spokesman for the school district says everything is secure and that all classes are continuing with a normal schedule. http://www.pe.com/articles/monday-750969-threat-shooting.html
Fallbrook Healthcare District has signed a continuation agreement with community Health Systems, the operator of Fallbrook Hospital to ensure the availability of core services, excluding obstetrics through November 17th. This involves two payments totaling $710k to CHS to support those services from October 1st through November 17th . http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/80848/
According to information shared at a public hearing, response to a request for proposals by other healthcare providers to sustain operations at Fallbrook Hospital have been limited as the deadline for takeover approaches. Only three proposals had been received as of September 16th from about a dozen invited organizations. Only one of the three was for the continuation of a full range of services. The proposals are detailed in an article by Debbie Ramsey in the Fallbrook-Bonsall Village News. http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/80837/
The Fallbrook High School Marching Warriors band has received its formal invitation from the Lord Mayor of London, England to be part of the 2016 New Years’ Day parade in that city. The annual British event features 10k performers and up to 1m spectators. The 2014 parade included two cheerleaders from Oceanside’s El Camino High School. One year from this coming January 1st, more than 50 members of Fallbrook High’s marching band plan to be part of the festivities – something band director Victor Torres says will be a life-changing event for the band members and will put the school on the international map. The school board cleared the way for the invitation by approving the concept last month. The marching band program, which used to attract 100 or more students several decades ago, was non-existent when Torres arrived at Fallbrook in 2011. About 10 students showed up for the first practice that year. Freshmen from that group are now seniors. Since then, the steadily growing group has consistently won their division at most of the band competitions they’ve entered. Now comes fundraising for the London trip. (from a Band Booster announcement with background from http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/14/fallbrook-high-band-summer-work-parade/2/?#article-copy )
The Morongo tribe held its 24th annual powwow over the weekend, finally retiring the colors at about 6p last night. A total of about 25k people were expected at the three-day event. http://www.pe.com/articles/entry-750902-grand-event.html
In Major League Baseball – The regular season ended yesterday. The Giants beat the Padres 9-3 in San Francisco while Petco Park was busy hosting Sir Paul McCartney, whose last stadium concert in San Diego was 49 years ago with the Beatles in Balboa Stadium. The Giants now gear up for a single wild card game against the Pirates in Pittsburgh Wednesday that will determine who meets the Washington Nationals for the best-of-five championship. The Giants finish the season at 88 and 74 on a three game win streak. The Padres finished third in the National League West with a 77 and 85 record, after losing three out of four to the Giants. The last two times the Giants went to the postseason, in 2010 and 2012, they won the World Series.
The Dodgers finished the season at 94 and 68 with a 10-5 win over the Rockies in LA. They had the second best record in the National League behind Washington. The Angels failed to hit 100 games, losing their last three in Seattle. That was still good enough for the best record in the American League this year at 98 and 64. They’ll meet the winner of tomorrow night’s American League Wild Card game between Oakland and the Royals Thursday in Anaheim. The other American League series will also begin Thursday with Detroit at Baltimore. In the National League, the playoffs start Friday with the Dodgers hosting St. Louis and the Wild Card winner at Washington.
The Yankees Derek Jeter hung up his cleats for the last time yesterday after an RBI single at Boston’s Fenway Park in the Yankees 9-5 win over the Red Sox. It was his 3,465th career hit – the sixth highest in baseball history. Jeter finished with a career .310 batting average. http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/11606552/boston-greats-honor-derek-jeter-final-mlb-game
For those left out of the postseason, rebuilding for next year has already begun. The Minnesota Twins have fired manager Ron Gardenhire after 13 seasons. That was the second longest tenure in the majors behind Mike Scoscia with the Angels. The Twins finished their fourth straight season with 92 or more losses. Gardenhire had one more year left on his contract. http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/11612667/minnesota-twins-fire-manager-ron-gardenhire
In the NFL – Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes, which was more than enough to beat the visiting Jaguars. Scoring began with a Charger field goal late in the first quarter. The Jags led for about three minutes in the second quarter until the Chargers’ Eddie Royal scored the first TD on a 47-yard pass from Rivers. The Jaguars led again after a 7-play drive capped by a 2-yard pass to Nic Jacobs. Royal scored again on a 43-yard pass just before half time as the Chargers took a 17-14 lead to the locker room, never looking back in the second half. Malcolm Floyd caught a 24-yard pass four minutes into the second half and San Diego added three field goals in the final 21 minutes to reach the final 33-14 score. Phil Rivers completed 29 of 39 for 377 yards with three touchdowns, compared to Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles who completed 29 of 37 for 253 yards, one TD and two interceptions. Jacksonville actually controlled the ball one minute longer than San Diego. http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=400554290
Elsewhere in the NFL, Tampa Bay rallied to beat the Steelers 27-24 in Pittsburgh, 49ers beat the visiting Eagles 26-21, Texans beat Buffalo in Houston 23-17. None of the other games were very close. Green Bay, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Miami, Minnesota, Detroit and Dallas all won.

At the movies, Denzel Washington in “The Equalizer” had the fourth-best September opening weekend ever at $35m. It did exactly double the business of the weekend’s 2nd place film “The Maze Runner”, now in its second week of release. The other new release, “The Boxtrolls” just missed 2nd place with $17.3m - #3 last week, it dropped to 4th. “This is Where I Leave You” only lost 39% of its opening week pace, bringing in another $7m. “Dolphin Tale 2” is still in 5th. “No Good Deed” was 6th. Last week’s second place movie, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” dropped 67% to #7. The rest of the top ten were “Guardians of the Galaxy” this year’s top money maker - now in its 9th week in theaters, “Let’s Be Cops” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/chart/?yr=2014&wknd=39&p=.htm

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of September.
We worry about wildfires this time of year, but house fires are always a concern. More than 3,400 Americans die each year and over 17k are injured in fires. Most of those fires happen in the home. Here are some home fire safety tips:
- Every home should have at least one working smoke alarm. Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home. Test them monthly. Keep them free of dust and replace the battery at least once a year.
- Prevent electrical fires by never overloading circuits or extension cords. Don’t place cords and wires under rugs, over nails or in high traffic areas.
- Immediately shut off and unplug any appliance that sputters, sparks, or gives off an unusual smell.
- Use safety caps to cover all unused electrical outlets … especially if there are small children in the house.
- Space heaters need space! Keep anything combustible at least three feet from heaters.
- Keep fires in the fireplace with fire screens and have your chimney cleaned once a year.
- Practice an escape plan from every room in the house and choose a location outside where everyone will meet. Get out safely first, then call for help.
These tips provided by the U.S. Fire Administration, FEMA, 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. There is a NO BURN proclamation for State Responsibility Areas including all of Pala in effect every day until further notice. Today’s (9/29) fire danger level is “high”.
