PALA TODAY – Thursday 1/19/17 – PT will not air or publish Friday 1/20, returning Monday 1/23

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.

 

LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

The first of three major storms over the next six days arrived last night in Pala.  As of 11a, we had .79 hundredths of an inch of rain.  Fallbrook and Rainbow have had an inch.  Four fifths of an inch at Valley Center and Bonsall.  Six tenths at Rincon.  Three quarters at La Jolla.  Nine tenths in Escondido.  An inch at Lake Henshaw and between 1 ½ and 2.2 inches over various parts of the Palomar Mountain range.  To the north, three quarter of an inch in Temecula and Oak Grove.  Just over a half inch in Murrieta and French Valley.  Less than three tenths at Vail Lake.  More on the way and the next storm tomorrow is supposed to be stronger. 

Live Oak Park Road in Fallbrook was closed for about an hour during this morning’s commute due to a downed tree.  It was cleared by 8a.  The 5th street dip between Vallecitos School and Old 395 in Rainbow was closed this morning.  The only major road closure reported in North County is Country Club Drive in San Marcos.   The flooding threat is probably over for now until the next storm arrives tomorrow.

Members of the Western Days Committee met Monday night in Valley Center to lay out and assign work that needs to be done for this year’s parade coming up Memorial Day weekend.  A newly created non-profit is taking over the operation of the parade.  That job had been done by Ridgeview Church in past years.  Talks with the county for permits need to be done.  Attracting entries, especially bands was discussed along with traffic control, the parade route itself along Valley Center Road and the concurrent festival and VC Stampede Rodeo, also happening that weekend.  http://www.valleycenter.com/news/2017-01-19/Front_Page/Western_Days_committee_kicks_off_a_world_of_work.html

Michael O’Connor and Jim Wold are being sworn in as fire directors tonight at the Valley Center Fire Protection District board meeting, 6p in the VC Water District board room.  The board will also elect new officers tonight. http://www.valleycenter.com/news/2017-01-19/Valley_News/VALLEY_BRIEFS.html

Plans for a luxury hotel in Old Town Temecula will be available for review by the public Monday at 6p in the Civic Center conference room at 41000 Main Street.  The five-story hotel is proposed for the south side of 3rd Street between Mercedes and Old Town Front Streets. A parking garage on the north side of 3rd would provide hotel and public parking for Old Town.  The hotel will have 151 rooms and space on the ground floor for high-end shops.  The design will be similar to the Truax building on the other side of the block and other multi-story buildings planned to surround Town Square Park which will also be built by Truax Development.  http://www.pe.com/articles/chance-823458-temecula-plans.html

The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival Wine Barrel Races, scheduled for this Sunday are being postponed until April due to this weekend’s storms.  Wine barrel race cars have one person driving and one pushing.  Creativity counts in design with the People’s Choice award being as important as winning races.  Prizes include camp sites at Lake Skinner for the Wine and Balloon Festival the first week in June, wine tasting passes and festival tickets.  Event news is available online at www.Facebook.com/TVBWFhttp://myvalleynews.com/local/barrel-races-postponed-due-weekend-weather/

A half mile section of Normandy Road on the west side of Menifee will close permanently on February 6 as developers continue work on master-planned Audie Murphy Ranch.  The segment was part of Newport Road until a new realignment of that major thoroughfare opened 6 ½ years ago.  Normandy’s replacement, Audie Murphy Road will terminate further south near Canyon Lake and will be completed in early summer.  http://www.pe.com/articles/road-823465-audie-normandy.html

A Vista woman who picked five of six Powerball numbers in the December 17 drawing has come forward to claim her $1.1m prize.  Theresa Mitchell bought her ticket at a Vista convenience store.

 

SPORTS   

In the NFL – The Oakland Raiders this morning filed paperwork with the NFL to move the team to Las Vegas.  The application will be reviewed over the next few weeks by league staff and the stadium and finance committees.  Meanwhile, Clark County officials are moving forward with plans for the Las Vegas Sands Corp. to build a domed stadium for the newcomers.  The proposed 65k seat stadium will cost $1.9b, paid for with $750m in hotel tax revenue, $650m from Sands owner Sheldon Adelson, and a half billion from the Raiders and the NFL.  They still have to find a location to build it.  The Raiders are currently the only team playing in a facility shared between baseball and football.  San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium was built for and served the same dual purpose for 40 years, but has been football-only since the Padres moved to Petco Park. http://www.pe.com/articles/vegas-823518-move-chairman.html

Upgrades for San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium are being put on hold now that the Chargers are gone.  Mayor Kevin Faulconer said yesterday that $600k in new fiber optic cables and conduits which would allow for future Wi-Fi needs were set to be installed in a couple of months with completion later this year.  But without a major tenant, the city needs to rethink that plan.  Six months ago, the upgrade was considered a go whether the Chargers stayed or not.  The team is paying $12.6m into the city’s general fund as a penalty for not being there in 2017.  http://www.10news.com/news/qualcomm-stadium-technology-upgrades-sidelined

On Sunday, Green Bay plays at Atlanta at noon and Pittsburgh at New England at 3:30p

In the NBA – Kevin Durant scored 40 for Golden State as the Warriors trounced the visiting Thunder 121-100.  Lowly Philadelphia, with its 14 and 26 record beat the visiting Raptors whose record is just about the reverse last night 94-89.  Washington held on even though they were outscored by 12 in the second half to beat Memphis 104-101.  Charlotte stung the Trail Blazers 107-85.  The Knicks upset the Celtics in Boston 117-106.  New Orleans cruised past Orlando 118-98.  Houston rolled over the Bucks 111-92.  The Pistons slapped the Hawks 118-95.  And the Pacers beat the Kings in Sacramento 106-100.  Five games tonight including the Clippers hosting Minnesota.  The Lakers’ next game is tomorrow hosting Indiana. 

In college basketball – A couple of upsets - #24 South Carolina rallied to beat #19 Florida 57-53 and unranked Oklahoma edged #7 West Virginia in overtime 89-87.  #3 UCLA hosts Arizona State, USC hosts #14 Arizona and Cal State San Marcos is at UCSD tonight. 

In the NHL – The Kings lost to the visiting San Jose Sharks last night.  That’s two straight losses for LA who have now fallen into the bottom half of the Pacific division behind 1st place Anaheim, Edmonton, San Jose and Calgary.  The Oilers topped the Panther 4-3 in overtime.  Detroit beat the visiting Bruins 6-5 in a shootout.  Pittsburgh dominated Montreal 4-1.  The Pirates would be in first place in any other division.  But in the Metropolitan division they’re in 3rd, three points behind league-leaders Columbus and Washington.  And last-place Phoenix fell to the Jets 6-3 in Winnipeg.  Eight games tonight including the Avalanche at Anaheim. 

In the minors – The Gulls’ next game is tomorrow night hosting San Jose.

For the second time, former Padres closing pitcher Trevor Hoffman did not receive enough votes to make it into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.  Hoffman got 327 votes – five shy of the 75% needed.  Hoffman spent most of his Major League career in San Diego.  The only three making the cut this year were Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez.  Hoffman was next on the list of 18.  It it’s any consolation, he got more votes than Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds and Lee Smith.  He’s also trending up from his 67% vote last year, and there’s always next year.  http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/18506166/former-closer-trevor-hoffman-misses-hall-fame-election-5-votes

In golf - The CareerBuilder Challenge got underway this morning in La Quinta, where it wasn’t raining … much.  Jason Duffner is the defending champion. http://www.espn.com/golf/leaderboard

BUSINE$$

Stocks were down about a half percent across the board mid-afternoon.  Gold was down 1% or about $12 an ounce to just about $1,200.  Oil was up slightly. 

Retail gasoline prices are steady locally and nationally today.  The average price of a gallon of regular in San Diego County is $2.84.  It’s $2.78 in Riverside County.  Nationally it’s $2.33.  That’s flat locally over the last week and down two cents nationally.  A year ago, prices were a nickel higher locally, but 45 cents lower nationally.  Today’s lowest local price is $2.44 at a couple of independent stations in Escondido.  In the Temecula Valley, Sam’s Club and Costco have the lowest price at $2.59.  http://www.riversidegasprices.com/

Watch out for restaurant surcharges.  With minimum wage increases, some restaurants are adding anywhere from 2 to 7% in addition to food, tax and tip to diner’s bills as a “surcharge”.  Some patrons in San Diego at Samy’s Woodfired Pizza for one, have complained that there was no notice of the extra charge until the bill came.  They claim that’s fraud.  Lawyers and restaurant experts say the surcharge puts servers in a bad position, because they have to explain it to customers and they’re the ones restaurateurs say are the reason for the surcharge.  Why restaurants are doing that is unclear when simply raising prices would accomplish the same thing without alienating everybody involved.  www.sandiegoreader.com

 

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

Lots of new movies this weekend - “The Founder” starring Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, who brought the world McDonald’s opens on 1,100 screens.  The comedy “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” opens on 1k screens.  Vin Diesel in “XXX:  Return of Xander Cage” is another in the action/adventure franchise, opening on 3,600 screens.  And horror-thriller “Split” opens on 3k screens. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/schedule/

Paul McCartney filed suit yesterday against Sony/ATV as insurance to regain the rights to many of the Beatles’ songs he wrote with John Lennon in the 1960s.  Michael Jackson outbid McCartney over 30 years ago, gaining control of the ATV catalog, which Jackson’s estate sold to Sony last year.  Under the 1976 Copyright Act, McCartney began sending Sony termination notices in 2008 to reclaim his songs.  The first notices should begin taking effect in October of 2018.  Yesterday’s lawsuit asks the court to declare that his terminating rights are not a breach of publishing contracts.  A similar British lawsuit last year involving 80’s pop-rockers Duran Duran went against the group as they tried to reclaim the rights to their songs. http://ktla.com/2017/01/19/paul-mccartney-sues-to-get-beatles-songs-back-from-sony/

California is one of 15 states involved in a $52m class action suit against dairy farmers accused of price-fixing.  Major dairies were accused of slaughtering more than a half million cows to reduce milk supplies and inflate prices.  If you bought milk in California in the last 14 years, you have until the end of the month to apply for a cash payment at www.BoughtMilk.com .  Depending on how many do apply, the payment could be anywhere from $30 to $70. 

U.S. Forest Service trail crews and volunteers are gearing up for trail renovation in the May Valley area of San Bernardino National Forest near Mountain Center.  They’re still trying to undo the damage done by the Mountain Fire that burned thousands of acres from Garner Valley to Idyllwild three years ago.  The current May Valley trails are popular with hikers and mountain bikers.  There’s been a demand to open up other undesignated and neglected trails in the area.  22 miles of unauthorized trails and 2 ½ miles of new trails are being taken over by the Forest Service.  They’ll also develop two new trail heads and rehab 10 ½ miles of unauthorized trails. http://anzavalleyoutlook.com/local/forest-service-crews-begin-spring-work-may-valley-area-nonmotorized-trials/

You may or may not believe in climate change, but for the first time in modern history, scientists reported yesterday the average world temperature increased to a new record high for the third consecutive year.  Temperatures are heading towards levels that some experts believe will be irreversible in the near term and could lead to threats to the natural world and even human civilization.  The announcement comes 2 days before the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has tweeted that global warming is a hoax. www.sandiegouniontribune.com
