LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

A Riverside jury yesterday unanimously recommended the death sentence for a 27-year old former Marine found guilty of the murders of his immediate superior, Janek Pietrzak and his wife Quiana Faye Jenkins-Pietrzak in their French Valley home six years ago.  Kesaun Defron Sykes was the fourth and final defendant to be tried an convicted for the October 15, 2008 killings.  Of the other three, two were sentenced to death.  The third got two consecutive life sentences. http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/80195/

Three Palomar College students were killed and five others injured in an accident on the 78 freeway near El Camino Real in Oceanside last night just before 11.  All eight were stuffed into a Honda Prelude which veered off the road, down an embankment and into a power pole.  The accident is under investigation.  CHP is not saying if speed, drugs or alcohol were factors, but it’s obvious the car had way too many people in it.  The victims were all between the ages of 18 and 22 and part of Palomar’s international program. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/22/three-killed-five-injured-state-route-78/

Valley Center schools were back in session yesterday.  That just leaves Bonsall, the last local district to head back to school.  That’ll be Monday with opening day for the first time for Bonsall High School at the campus of Sulllivan Middle School on West Lilac Road.  The semester begins for Palomar College on Monday as well.

Health officials yesterday said mosquitoes collected in Murrieta, Temecula, and Hemet have tested positive for West Nile virus.  They say it’s not unusual for mosquitoes to have West Nile this time of year.  Mosquito bites can transmit the disease to humans.  Two people in San Bernardino County were found to have been infected last week.  Most people don’t show symptoms, but the virus can cause, fever, headache and body aches.  Young children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems are at greater risk.  http://www.pe.com/articles/mosquitoes-748647-virus-positive.html

Three North County cities have opted to skip the fall elections and instead appoint candidates to city council seats.  On Wednesday, the cities of San Marcos, Solana Beach and Del Mar each decided to save money and make appointments instead of hold elections since all registered candidates were running unopposed.  The cancellation does remove the opportunity for write-in candidates.  The move is a first for San Marcos and Del Mar.  It’s the third time since 2008 for Solana Beach. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/21/elections-canceled-san-marcos-solana-beach-del-mar/

Noting the high price of water and land, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors directed staff this month to work on a program that could open up nearly a third of unincorporated San Diego County to wineries.  Current “general use” zoning for most of the back-country allows for the growing of grapes, like any other crop, but not wine-making.  The value of all crops in the county was $1.75b in 2012.  But economic conditions are causing a change in the mix of those crops.  The so-called Agriculture Promotion Program would streamline creation and expansion of “agritourism” pursuits including wineries, microbreweries, cheese-making, beekeeping, and onsite retail sales for those and other agricultural pursuits. http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/80187/

 

SPORTS

In Major League Baseball – The Padres lost to the Dodgers 2-1.  LA took two out of three in the series.  The Padres return home for a series with the Diamondbacks beginning tonight.  LA hosts the Mets.  The Angels blanked Boston 2-0 last night.  The A’s did not play.  They host Anaheim tonight in one of the most critical series of the season with supremacy in the AL West and in all of the majors at stake.

In the minors – The Storm lost 11-3 to visiting Stockton last night.  They’ll play in Bakersfield tonight, tomorrow and Sunday.

In the NFL – The Chargers are at San Francisco on Sunday for the third of this year’s four preseason games.

In NASCAR – races at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend.

Former WBA light middleweight champion Austin Trout will fight Daniel Dawson in the 12-round main event of a boxing program tonight at Pechanga Resort in Temecula. http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/80198/

 

BUSINE$$

Not much action today on Wall Street.  Here’s the midday update from Marketwatch.com. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/newscast-yellen-speaks-no-room-for-jello-2014-08-22

Janet Yellen’s speech today didn’t thrill investors.  Marketwatch.com’s Larry Kofsky has a closer look in today’s Stock Talk. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/stocks-mostly-lower-following-yellen-speech-2014-08-22

Redlands-based economist John Husing is sounding the alarm over the growing gap between haves and have-nots.  Husing says if something isn’t done about poverty, we’re not going to want to live in Southern California anymore.  Based on figures from the 2012 American Community Survey and the state Employment Development Department, over 19% of residents in LA County live in poverty as do over 20% of those in Riverside County.  The state average is 17% and nationally it’s 15.9%.  For children under the age of 17, the numbers are even worse.  One fourth of SoCal children live in poverty.  The worst place is Imperial County where it’s one in three.  Husing attributes the shift to the rise in Hispanic population and state environmental regulations hampering construction and chasing away other businesses.  Education is lagging in the region as well.  In 1970, 70% of adults in Southern California had at least a high school diploma – 8 percentage points better than the national average.  In 2012 that figure had dropped to 42%, which now trails the national average by about 42%. http://www.pe.com/articles/poverty-748616-percent-california.html

Marketwatch.com’s Charlie Turner reports on some phone apps to help you decompress.  http://www.marketwatch.com/podcast/podcastpopup/Take%20On%20Tech/0#

There may be “an app for that”, but who cares?  Marketwatch.com’s Andrew O’Day says increasingly, “app” stands for apathy.  Here’s Take on Tech. http://www.marketwatch.com/podcast/podcastpopup/Take%20On%20Tech/0#

Here’s Marketwatch.com’s Adrienne Mitchell with the “State of the Food Truck” report. http://www.marketwatch.com/podcast/podcastpopup/Money%20Markets%20And%20More/0

Food truck drivers will be pleased with this news … retail gasoline prices are continuing to fall - slowly.  The average price for a gallon of regular in San Diego and Riverside Counties today is $3.82.  That’s down 3 cents from a week ago and 19 cents from a month ago.  It’s the lowest it’s been in 6 months and is about 3 ½ cents lower than the same time last year.  The lowest price in the area today is at the ARCO on East Valley Parkway at N Midway.  They’re selling regular for $3.47 a gallon.  The lowest price in the Temecula Valley is $3.65 at Costco and Sam’s Club. http://fuelgaugereport.aaa.com/states/california/california-metro/ http://www.riversidegasprices.com/Map_Gas_Prices.aspx

Marketwatch.com’s Tracy Johnke says fuel prices are expected to trend lower nationwide for a while. http://www.marketwatch.com/podcast/podcastpopup/MarketWatch%20News%20Break/0

 

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

If you’re looking for a bargain, Monday is the 98th birthday for the U.S. National Park Service.  They’re celebrating by waiving entrance fees at all national parks on Monday, August 25th

 

The Pala Band of Mission Indians has a number of employment opportunities including full time and part time.  For a list, go to http://www.palatribe.com/career-opportunities

 

Here’s the Pala Safety Committee tip for the month of August.

Half of 2.4 million calls to poison control centers yearly involve children ages 5 and under.  And 9 out of 10 poisonings happen at home.  Here are some simple steps you can take to prevent poisonings in your home.

  • Always store pesticides and other household chemicals in a locked cabinet or garden shed away from children and pets
  • Use the safest possible cleaning products.  Look for the Design for the Environment (DfE) label on products.
  • Re-close pesticides and other household chemical products if interrupted by phone, doorbell, etc. during application.
  • Never transfer pesticides and other household chemical products to containers that could be mistaken for food or drink
  • Remove children, pets, toys, bottles and pacifiers from areas where you’re about to apply pesticides inside or outside the home.
  • Program the Poison Help number into your phone … 1 800 222 1222.  If an accident occurs with pesticides, chemicals, medicine or household products, call Poison Help for immediate advice from a local poison expert

These tips provided by Safe Kids Worldwide, the U.S. EPA, 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 (8/22) fire danger level is “high”.
