PALA TODAY – Thursday 10/27/16

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.



A pair of 17-year olds arrested yesterday in Oceanside have been linked to 5 armed robberies in that city.  The two were arrested during a traffic stop following a robbery at the 7-11 on Oceanside Boulevard at about 2:15a.  Officers found a loaded handgun, two BB guns and masks in their car.  Investigators linked the boys to three robberies since September at the same 7-11 and two at AM/PMs on Melrose in Oceanside and Santa Fe in Vista.

Deputies searched a Temecula neighborhood yesterday for a wanted felon but apparently came up empty-handed.  The parole violator was thought to be in the Paseo Del Sol neighborhood.  Social media lit up with reports of deputies in the neighborhood with guns drawn.  But as of 2p yesterday no announcements one way or another had been made by the Sheriff’s department.

Armed robbers struck a Hemet jeweler and a convenience store on October 14th and 15th.  Surveillance footage has now been released and the Gold Crown Exchange jeweler is offering a $2k reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction as Hemet Police seek the public’s help in finding the crooks.  

The California Department of Motor Vehicles reports that 21 of its 188 field offices were still closed as of 10a this morning following a catastrophic computer failure yesterday.  In San Diego County, only the San Marcos field office was still affected.  Temecula and Hemet opened on schedule this morning.

In a surprise move on Friday, Escondido City Manager Graham Mitchell announced his resignation after less than a year on the job, citing personal reasons.  The 47-year old Graham became city manager in December of last year following the retirement of long-time manager, Clay Phillips.  He’d previously been city manager in Lemon Grove for 12 years.  Mitchell said he planned to continue to live in Escondido.

Escondido’s police chief, Craig Carter has been named “Law Enforcement Official of the Year” by the San Diego Crime Commission.  Chief Carter has served as the San Diego County Police Chiefs’ and Sheriff Association president for the past two years.

There was a mild 2.5 magnitude earthquake at the southeastern shore of Salton Sea yesterday afternoon at 2:45p.  It was only lightly felt in the immediate area.  Meanwhile, a pair of aftershocks from the August 24th earthquake in Italy rattled the central portion of that country last evening.  They measured 5.4 and 6.1 on the Richer Scale, meaning the second one was eight times stronger than the first.  Additional buildings crumbled, but there were no reports of major injuries or any fatalities.

Rez Radio 91.3 was honored with three awards from the San Diego Press Club at this year’s 43rd annual Excellence in Journalism celebration in San Diego on Tuesday.  Eric Ortega won in the talk/interview category for “Pala Life Past and Present”.  Gilbert Smith and Mike Bragg won for show series with “Galaxy Moonbeam Night Site”, the 100th anniversary of the Panama Exhibition episode.  And Pala Today News at Noon won in the best newscast category for the fifth year.  Rez Radio has won a total of 18 awards from the San Diego Press Club and also been recognized by the Radio and Television News Directors’ Association in our 5 ½ years on the air.

Rain is on the way for us here in Pala.  The full forecast is coming up. (below)



In the World Series – Last night in Cleveland, the Cubs evened up the Series at a game apiece beating the Indians 5-1.  Chicago starting pitcher Jake Arrieta had a no-hitter into the 6th inning while the offense piled on its 5 runs.  That was the longest no-hit streak in a Series game since Jerry Koosman did it for the Mets in 1969.  Mike Montgomery pitched two scoreless innings in relief and Aroldis Chapman closed out the final four outs with fastball strikes up to 103 miles an hour.  Cleveland gave up nine hits, eight walks, and two errors along with those five runs.  The start of the game was moved up an hour to try to beat a predicted rain storm.  In tomorrow’s Game 3 in Chicago, the Cubs will start Kyle Hendricks against Josh Tomlin on the mound.  Kyle Schwarber, who drove in two runs last night after missing six months of the regular season might not play tomorrow.  He’s the Designated Hitter and that position only exists in American League stadiums. 

How badly do Cubs’ fans want to see their team win its first World Series in 108 years?  Or just watch them play in the World Series for the first time in 71 years?  The next three games, all to be played at Wrigley Field have the most expensive ticket prices ever for a baseball game.  The median price on StubHub for tomorrow’s Game 3 is $3k.  For Saturday, it’s $3,650.  And for Game 5 on Sunday, it’s $3,500.  That’s anywhere from $2k to $2,650 more per ticket than for Game 1 or 2 in Cleveland.   As of a few hours ago, the cheapest ticket for tomorrow was $2,140 each for two standing room tickets at Wrigley.  But even those lofty prices fall short of the record set by Super Bowl 50 at a median price of $4,512 on StubHub.

Padres manager A.J. Preller said yesterday that 10 teams have inquired about trading for Padres players since his 30-day league suspension ended – one of whom wants to make a trade.  Apparently Preller’s reputation wasn’t hurt by the suspension without pay on September 15th for failure to disclose medical information about pitcher Drew Pomeranz when he was traded to Boston in July.  Preller insists it was a misunderstanding about medical reporting guidelines and vows that the Padres will be industry leaders in medial reporting from here on.

In the NFL – Jacksonville plays at Tennessee tonight at 5:30p.

The NFL trading deadline is coming up on Tuesday, November 1st.  Some names rumored to come up between now and then include 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley and wide receiver Torrey Smith.  Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, and possibly Cleveland’s cornerbacks Joe Haden and Tramon Williams.  Those are just rumors and normally, there’s more talk than action in the NFL at the annual trade deadline.

In college football – San Diego State University this week announced John David Wicker as the school’s new athletic director, replacing Jim Sterk who was hired away by Missouri in August.  It’s a homecoming for Wicker, who was the deputy AD from 2011 to 2015 before he left to be senior associate athletic director at Georgia Tech.

In the NBA – The lowly Lakers opened the new season in front of a sellout crowd with a win last night at Staples Center, rallying in the 4th period to beat Houston 120-114.  That’s when Jordan Clarkson scored 12 of his 25 points – best of the night for LA.  James Hardin had 34 points in Houston’s losing effort.  Elsewhere, the Raptors, Hornets, Grizzlies, Nuggets, Thunder, and Kings all won.  The only games closer than the Lakers win were the Grizzlies over the T-Wolves 102-98 and the Nuggest over New Orleans 107-102.  Four games tonight including the Clippers season opener at Portland.

In the NHL – The Ducks routed the visiting Nashville Predators last night 6-1.  J. Silfverberg had two for Anaheim.  The other Duck goals came from Corey Perry, Andrew Cogliano, Ryan Kesler, and Nick Ritchie.  Montreal, the Oilers, and the New York Rangers won the league’s other three games last night.  Among tonight’s 9 games, the Kings are hosting Nashville.   

Anaheim has resigned restricted free agent Hampus Lindholm to a new 6-year deal worth $5.25m a season.  Lindholm was drafted 6th overall by Anaheim in 2012, has 92 points in his 236 NHL games and led the Ducks last season with a career-high 115 blocked shots.

In Golf - The Shesahn International in Shanghai has completed round 1 with Sweden’s Rickard Karlberg leading Rickie Fowler by one stroke at 8-under par 64.  Russel Knox is the defending champion.  He’s two stokes in back of Karlberg, tied with Daniel Berger.

Stocks are mixed again today with the blue chips up a little and the broader stocks down a little.  Gold and oil are both up. 

Twitter plans to shut down its Vine mobile video app within a few months.  The company has also announced it will cut 9% of its workforce, or about 350 jobs.  Though Twitter’s user base is up 11% in the last three months – more than expected – it’s still down 44% from 12 months ago.



Friends of the Valley Center Library are holding a book sale tomorrow from 9:30a to 4:30p.  Most books in the Friends bookstore inside the library are half price and they’re hosting a Buck a Bag sale.  Buy a bag for one dollar and fill it with books from the bargain table outside the store. 

Fifteen native baskets from the Lusieno, Diegueno, and Kumeyaay tribes are now on display at the Valley Center History Museum.  The museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4p and admission is free. 760 749 2993

Free golf lessons are being offered by Pechanga golf instructor Randy Chang for kids and teens who turn in a bag of Halloween candy the first two weekends in November.  The collected sweets will be given to veterans and members of the military and can be dropped off at Pechanga’s Journey pro shop from 7a to 5p November 4-6 and 11-13 – one lesson per child or teen.

Yet another invasive insect is threatening Southern California trees.  We’ve been living with dead and dying oak trees for about 20 years.  Now comes the South American palm weevil, moving up from its native South and Central America.  Invasive species specialist from UC Riverside, Mark Hoddle says the bug has already killed hundreds of palm trees from the Border to Chula Vista and is probably in the process of killing many more than we realize.  Infestations had been detected in Tijuana up to ten years ago.  The weevils bury their eggs in palm fronds.  The hatched larvae then eat away at the tree until it dies, usually in a matter of months.  The weevil is easy to spot.  It’s black, about an inch and half long and can fly up to ten miles.  Not having spread past Chula Vista, Hoodle says at this point, there’s a good chance it can be contained.  Otherwise it threatens Southern California’s $70m ornamental palm industry and $30m commercial date industry, not to mention the cost of removing millions of dead palm trees and the loss of a Southern California icon.
