PALA TODAY – Thursday 9/22/16 – PT and all Pala departments will observe the Native American Day holiday tomorrow, 9/23 – returning Monday, 9/26

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 21-year old Fallbrook man was arrested yesterday for a beating attack on three people outside a church that resulted in the death of an 84-year old man.  The other two victims told police they were painting the exterior of the church on the 300 block of East Elder in Fallbrook when attacked by the young stranger just before noon.   Officers then found the injured elderly man, who later died at Palomar Hospital.  The suspect matching the description, Keith Vazquez was spotted a few blocks away and taken into custody around 12:30p.

The victim of a shooting on Los Coyotes Reservation Friday has died from her injuries.  She’s identified as 51-year old Carrie Deatherage.  Her sister, Sandra Stoneburner is in custody and will be charged with her murder.  (SD Sheriff’s news release)

The case of a Murrieta detox home worker had ended with a hung jury.  The vote was 10-2 in favor of acquitting Kristofer Michael McCausland on a charge of dependent adult abuse in the death of 53-year old Gary Benefield at A Better Tomoorrow Treatment Center in Murrieta in 2010.  Benefield died less than a day after arriving at the center.  It’ll be up to the state Attorney General’s office to decide whether to retry McCausland.

A Sigalert on southbound 215 tied up traffic for over an hour at about 5:25a this morning.  The 3-car pileup happened near Los Alamos Road.

37-year old Jeremy Vague, a ride-sharing driver arrested by Escondido Police last week, pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges of sexual assault, false imprisonment and others.  Friday, an 18-year old female student at Palomar College requested a ride from Uber.  Vague arrived in his blue minivan, but instead of taking her to her residence, an Escondido Police spokesman says Vague intentionally turned off the Uber app, diverted his route, and drove the victim to an alternate location where he assaulted her.  The victim knew something was wrong and began texting friends when he first went off course.  Vague had an incident earlier in the month that the victim refused to report but after which Palomar campus police told Vague not to return to campus.  Investigators have since uncovered other incidents.  Vague is a former girls’ basketball coach at Calvin Christian High School.  He played basketball at Utah State as a senior in 2001 and has a criminal past in Utah that is not sex-related.  Uber, for whom Vague worked for three months and Lyft, who he’d been with for 9 months have both removed him from their ride-sharing driver lists.

The man who pleaded guilty last month to sexually assaulting two women during home burglaries in Fallbrook was sentenced yesterday to 20 years in state prison.  December 2nd of last year, a woman called 911 at 2:35a to report an intruder in her apartment on Alturas Road.  While deputies searched for him, a woman screamed in a nearby apartment.  She told deputies a man tried to sexually assault her while in bed with her husband.  23-year old Michael Anthony Espinoza was spotted running from the complex and detained.  He was also linked to another hot prowl burglary and assault the same night on a 62-year old woman who was ill at the time and later died.

A local couple are the latest potential buyers trying to rescue Fallbrook Golf Course.  Gird Valley, Inc., owned and operated by Jade and Julie Work reportedly have the property in escrow, scheduled to close by the end of the month, according to   The media release states that Gird Valley, Inc. “will pay off the debt and arrears (incurred by owner Jack Lamberson) during the escrow process, thus removing D-Day Capital as lien holder.”  The Works are the owners and operators of golf course construction company Integrity Golf.  D-Day principal, Ronald Richards says he can’t be cut out in this way – that they’ll have to deal with him to complete any deal for the property.  The Works have not committed to keeping the property as a golf course, but have said that whatever happens there will be conservation easements and that any use will be “in keeping with the rural character of Gird Valley”.  Neighbors that established are thrilled with the possibility of this deal.

Five months after the fact, 19-year old Ramiro Israel Alvarado of Hemet was arrested yesterday for the death of a 52-year old Riverside man in a head-on collision in Perris in back in April.  The convicted DUI offender is being formally charged and making an initial court appearance today.  Alvarado was driving his Honda Civic northbound on Navajo Road the night of April 10th when he drifted across the center median into the path of a motorcycle driven by Wesley Erickson, who was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.  Evidence showed Alvarado was under the influence of drugs at the time.  He was driving on a revoked license and his prior DUI meant he had been warned about the consequences of repeat behavior.  He’s expected to be charged with second degree murder this time.



In Major League Baseball – Last night at Bark Park, the Padres lost to the Diamondbacks 3-2.  LA stomped the Giants 9-3.  Yasiel Puig accounted for three of the five runs scored in the first inning with a home run.  LA starting pitcher Kenta Maeda allowed two runs – only one of them earned – and three hits in five innings.  He has a perfect 4 and 0 record against the Giants this season.  The win increases LA’s lead in the NL West to six games.  The Angels edged the Rangers in Texas 5-4.  Mike Trout hit his 38th home run of the season – a three run shot in the 5th.  The Rangers magic number is still “2” to clinch the division.  Elsewhere the Rockies crushed the Cardinals 11-1 in Denver.  Nolan Arenado had a grand slam homer in that game.  Boston won its seventh consecutive game and is now close to running away with the AL East title that was a virtual three-way tie a couple of weeks ago.  The Nationals are back on track to win the NL East after snapping a four-game losing streak.  They beat the Marlins 8-3.  The Tigers-Twins game was postponed due to rain.  Today, the Padres host San Francisco for the first of four games.  The Dodgers host Colorado.  And the Angels are at Houston. 

In the NFL – Houston is at New England tonight at 5:25p on CBS.  LA is at Tampa Bay Sunday at 1p on Fox.  The Chargers are at Indianapolis at 1:25p on CBS.

A recent poll of 1,100 Americans by E-Poll Marketing Research shows 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the most disliked player in the NFL.  Out of 350 players, Kaepernick was “disliked a lot” by 29% of the representative sample of the general population.  That’s up from 6% the last time the poll was taken in 2014 right after San Francisco lost to the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.  Among NFL fans, the dislike factor against Kaepernick is even higher – 36%.  But among African-Americans, his popularity has never been greater.  42% like him “a lot”, while only 2% dislike him a lot.  Two years ago, those numbers were 16% and 3%.  Kaepernick’s stand on not-standing for the National Anthem is having an effect.  Twice as many polled know his name now.  And sales of his jersey skyrocketed to the highest in the league for a couple of days at the beginning of the month.

In college football – #5 Clemson is at Georgia Tech tonight.  #24 Utah hosts USC Friday.  San Diego State has a bye this week.

In golf, the TOUR Championship in Atlanta is underway with Hideki Matsuyama and Kevin Chappell tied for the early lead on the front 9 with half the field yet to tee off.  Jordan Spieth is the defending champion.

All three major U.S. stock indexes are up about 0.5% as of mid-afternoon trading.  Gold is up $10 to $1,341.60 an ounce.  Oil is up almost a dollar to over $46 a barrel for West Texas Intermediate Crude.

The Federal Reserve’s decision to leave interest rates where they are has caused the dollar to weaken against foreign currencies.   



As of two days ago, all children born in California – about a half million annually – are being tested for a rare genetic disorder that can destroy the central nervous system.  Routine screening for newborns already looks for 80 potential health issues.  A Vista woman whose child died from the disease pushed for 13 years to ALD added to the list.  Her determined activism paid off this week.  You can read her story in an article by Paul Sisson in the UT San Diego.

Two new wide releases coming up this weekend at the movies – a remake of “The Magnificent Seven” which itself was an adaptation of the Japanese film “Seven Samurai” opens on 3,665 screens.  The western stars Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.  The Warner Bros. animated feature “Storks” opens on 3,800 screens.
