PALA TODAY – Friday 4/18/14 – Good Friday

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

One person died and four others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash yesterday afternoon on South Mission Road in Fallbrook just after 4p.  A northbound Honda Civic veered across the center line, hitting a Nissan pickup.  The Honda was then broadsided by another pickup truck, resulting in the death of the passenger in the Civic.  The first truck then crossed the road, ran up an embankment and rolled over onto a fourth vehicle.  Both drivers suffered moderate injuries.  South Mission Road was closed for several hours for investigation.   http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/77616/

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the Mexican state of Guerrero just before 7:30 this morning about 20 miles inland from the coastal city of Tecpan de Galeana.  That’s about 164 miles southwest of Mexico City and 70 miles northwest of Acapulco.  There were no immediate damage reports.  An 8.1 quake in the same general area in 1985 killed 6k people and destroyed numerous buildings.   www.usgs.gov

The Lake Elsinore man arrested Monday for allegedly attacking another man at his Red Gum Drive home has been charged with attempted murder and other sentence-enhancing allegations.  32-year old Andy Dean Abegg is being held on $1m bail at Southwest Detention Center.  The victim remains in critical condition with head injuries.  His name and possible motives for the attack have not been made public. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/77551/

A Murrieta man with a sock fetish accused of bothering several young women and arrested a week ago has been re-arrested on additional charges.  31-year old Alexis Edmundo Garcia was first taken into custody April 11th on various charges of inappropriate contact with at least five young girls at local schools over the last two months.  He was released the following day on $5k bail.  Additional investigation revealed more than a half dozen additional victims resulting in probable cause to re-arrested Garcia on child pornography charges and hold him on $1m bail. http://temecula.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-rearrest-man-suspected-of-stalking-young-murrieta-girls

San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies are actively looking for a missing man identified as 43-year old Michael Raymond Reeder.  His abandoned vehicle was found in a secluded part of Oakvale Road in Valley Center earlier this month.  The active search began last Friday.  He’d been known to frequent the area and foul play is not suspected.  Reeder is described as white, six foot tall, weighing 230 pounds. http://www.valleycenter.com/Articles-News-c-2014-04-16-87604.113122-Abandoned-vehicle-leads-to-search-for-missing-man.html

The Oceanside Firefighters’ Union will pay a $12k fine for failing to disclose the identity of most of its donors over a year and a half period as well as for failure to disclose a donation it made to help re-elect the city’s mayor.  The amount is less than half what the group could have been fined by the Fair Political Practices Commission. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/apr/16/oceanside-firefighter-pac-fined/

Citations have been sent to the owner of the defunct Escondido Country Club as well as the owner of an egg ranch for the chicken manure that was spread over the former fairways two weeks ago.  Stuck in the Rough LLC and its owner Michael Schlesinger face fines of $10k a day for what residents say was retribution for their opposition to plans to develop the land into homes.  Attorneys for Schlesinger say the company did nothing illegal but acted quickly to address the problem, hiring an eight man crew to remove and abate the stench.  Officials monitoring the situation say it’s better but still stinks. http://temecula.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-rearrest-man-suspected-of-stalking-young-murrieta-girls

 

SPORTS

In the NBA playoffs – round one action begins early tomorrow with Brooklyn at Toronto at 9:30, the Clippers hosting Golden State at 12:30 on ABC, Atlanta at Indiana at 4 and Memphis at Oklahoma City at 6:30.  The other four series begin Sunday with Dallas at San Antonio at 10a, Charlotte at Miami at 12:30 on ABC, Washington at Chicago at 4, and Portland at Houston at 6:30.

Longtime Milwaukee Bucks owner Herb Kohl announced Wednesday that he’s reached an agreement to sell the franchise to a pair of hedge fund billionaires, subject to league approval.  Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he thinks the $550m price tag is a bargain, suggesting that any NBA franchise should be worth at least a billion.  Forbes magazine values only the Knicks, Lakers and Bulls at $1b or more.  In January, they valued the Bucks at $405m, the lowest of all 30 NBA teams.  Coincidentally, this season’s Bucks also had the worst record in the NBA. http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/_/id/10799544/mark-cuban-says-milwaukee-bucks-sale-bargain

In Major League Baseball – The Padres lost to the Rockies at Petco Park yesterday 3-1.  The Angels had the day off and the Dodgers beat the Giants in San Francisco 2-1 to avoid a sweep.  Winning pitcher for LA was Hyun-Jin Ryu, who said he pitched for his country, South Korea in the hopes it would give those affected by this week’s ferry boat tragedy something brighter to think about.  He stretched his scoreless streak to 26 innings this season and 28 dating back to last season. http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=340417126&teams=los-angeles-dodgers-vs-san-francisco-giants

In last night’s game in St. Petersburg, Florida, the Yankees pulled off a 5-4-3 triple play against the Rays in the second inning.  It’s the first triple play of the 2014 season. http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/10800165/scott-sizemore-scoop-caps-new-york-yankees-triple-play

The Padres host the Giants beginning tonight.  LA opens a home stand against the Diamondbacks and the Angels are at Detroit.

Major League Baseball’s new video review system is up and running.  One thing that’s been found so far is that this year, umpires on the field are getting more calls right than ever before.  Most of the calls being challenged are being upheld. And a few replay calls are being missed.  Managers are sometimes hesitant to burn their one challenge per game too early in the game.  Some fans miss the arguments between coaches and umpires.  What everyone agrees on is that the new video review system is still a work in progress.  http://espn.go.com/mlb/

In the minors – The Storm opened a three game home stand last night, losing to Modesto 3-1.  Same two teams tonight and tomorrow.  The minors are off on Easter Sunday.

In the NHL playoffs – The LA Kings lost the first game of their series with the Sharks in San Jose 6-3 last night.  Two top teams battled it out in St. Louis with the hometown Blues coming out on top of the visiting Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 in triple overtime last night.  Colorado beat Minnesota 5-4 in single overtime and the Rangers flew past the Flyers 4-1 in New York.

Tonight the Ducks go for a second win against Dallas at Honda Center.  Captain Ryan Getzlaf will play tonight in spite of a nasty looking injury suffered late in Wednesday’s game.  He got hit in the face with a puck, but apparently didn’t suffer any broken bones.  Making light of it, Anaheim defenseman Ben Lovejoy said, “Luckily he’s married and already has a couple of kids.  He’s not trying to impress anybody with his face.”  Tampa Bay tries to even its series with Montreal at a game apiece and the Bruins play their first game against visiting Detroit. http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nhl/story/_/id/10800053/ryan-getzlaf-anaheim-ducks-plans-play-slap-shot-head

In golf, at Hilton Head, South Carolina, Matt Kuchar, who finished 5th last week at Augusta was tied for the lead with Scott Langley and William McGirt, each with a 5-under 66 after yesterday’s first round.  Most big name players generally take the week off after the Masters.  Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy did so.  Tiger Woods is still recuperating from back surgery.  Only six of the top-20 ranked golfers are playing in this week’s RBC tournament. http://espn.go.com/golf/story/_/id/10799807/matt-kuchar-scott-langley-william-mcgirt-share-lead-pga-tour-rbc-heritage

Local High School Sports:  It is Spring Break in Fallbrook and Valley Center, but there are some games this week at Fallbrook

Fallbrook – varsity softball at a tournament in Las Vegas today; boys lacrosse at Temecula Valley beginning at 5:30

Valley Center – nothing scheduled this week

LIFESTYLE

National Park Week starts this weekend and runs through next Sunday.  To kick it off, admission is free this weekend only to all 401 of America’s National Parks.

 

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.
