Less than a week after a San Diego State freshman died from bacterial meningitis, a student from Palomar College has been hospitalized with a meningococcal infection.  Officials at the county Health and Human Services Agency say there is no known connection between the two cases.  The Palomar student had not had any exposure to anyone from SDSU and had only attended one class at Palomar within the last three weeks.  Those who may have had contact with the student have been offered antibiotics.  Officials say there have been no additional infections related to the fatality at San Diego State.  There have been 7 reported cases of meningitis in San Diego County this year.  The average over the last decade is 11 per year.

The San Diego County Planning Commission earlier this month modified the major use permit for the Rosemary’s Mountain quarry off Highway 76 four miles west of Pala.  The vote was 4-1 with one member absent and one seat vacant.  The changes include increasing the quarry area about 10% to just over 103 acres, increasing the reclamation plan area from 38 to 48 acres, allowing a 90-foot high asphalt batch plant and an 80-foot high earthen wall.  The quarry, operated by Granite Construction was initially approved with a 20-year permit in 1997.  Legal challenges kept Rosemary’s Mountain from beginning operations until a new permit was issued in 2002.

A former employee of the Oak Grove Center, a school for special-needs children in Murrieta pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of unlawful sex with a minor and burglary.  24-year old Wesley Anthony Langdon of Murrieta used to monitor one of the dormitories overnight.  He was arrested in February after he’d already left Oak Grove’s employ.  In a deal with prosecutors, some charges will be dropped and Langdon is expected to serve one year in jail in lieu of a suspended six-year prison sentence.

Menifee City Councilman Thomas Furhrman was arrested yesterday for suspicion of corruption.  The 70-year old, who is up for reelection was charged with one felony and four misdemeanor counts related to votes affecting the horse-boarding and RV storage businesses he operates on his ranch in that city.

Conde Nast Traveler’s 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards have named two San Diego County spas to its list of Top 100 Hotels and Resorts all over the world.  Cal-A-Vie on Twin Oaks Valley Road just west of the 15 freeway is listed at #13.  Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe is at #25.  Among Destination Spas, Cal-A-Vie which charges up to $9k a week was ranked #2 in the world behind Aro Ha in New Zealand.  In the category of Top U.S. Resorts, Rancho Valencia was the only one locally to make the Top 25 at #6.  It topped the list of Best Resorts in Southern California with the Grand Del Mar at #3, the Park Hyatt Aviara at #5, Hotel del Coronado at #13, and The Lodge at Torrey Pines at #14.

An accident this morning on Gird Road near Bluebell Lane blocked traffic just before 8a.  CHP reported a woman involved was unresponsive when they arrived.

In The World Series – Game 3 is tonight in San Francisco

Tampa Rays manager Joe Maddon has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract and will leave the team after nine years, effective immediately.

In the NFL – What a difference five days makes.  In that time, the formerly first-place Chargers who had been riding a six-game win streak, have lost two games.  Last night in Denver, San Diego lost to the Broncos 35-21.  Denver’s Emmanuel Sanders managed to grab all three of Peyton Manning’s touchdown throws.  Statistics were fairly even between the two teams.  Time of possession was less than a minute different.  Completion percentage and yardages were about the same for Manning and Phil Rivers.  San Diego did turn over the ball twice and Denver rushed for 70 more yards.  In any case, Denver now leads the AFC West.  The Broncos and the NFC East-leading Cowboys have the two best records in the NFL at 6 and 1.  The Chargers are now 5 and 3.

The owner of the Seattle Seahawks, billionaire co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen yesterday pledged $100m to fight the ebola threat.  He says he’s working with the World Health Organization and that among the initiatives he’s supporting are the establishment of two medevac containment units the U.S. State Department can use to safely handle health workers who become infected.

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health says soft drinks speed up the body’s aging process at about the same rate as cigarettes.  One 20-ounce serving of soda per day is linked to 4.6 years of additional aging.  The study pertained to the large amount of sugar in soda and did not include diet sodas or fruit juices.

This Sunday is Palomar Mountain State Park’s 4th annual Apple Festival.  The orchard at the entrance to the park has trees still producing after being planted by pioneer homesteaders over 100 years ago.  From 11a to 4p, visitors can sample pies, pastries and hand-pressed cider made from the historic orchard’s harvest.  The Silvercrest Picnic area will look like a 19th century fall festival on the mountain with square dancing and handmade 19th century-style fashions.  Access to the park, which is normally $8, is free for the day.  The park is located at 19952 State Park Road, Palomar Mountain.  The festival is being coordinated by park ranger Jessica Murany.  Jessica.Murany@parks, 760 742 3462


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

Halloween is a fun time to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating and eat treats … for kids too.  Here are some tips to make Halloween fun and safe for trick-or-treaters.

  • No one should trick-or-treat alone.  Always walk in groups.
  • Attach reflective tape to costumes and bags, and carry a flashlight to help drivers see you.
  • If you’re walking where there’s no sidewalk, walk on the far edge of the road facing traffic.
  • Wear well-fitting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls.
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats.  Avoid homemade treats made by strangers.
  • Never walk near lit candles or luminarias.
  • Be sure your costume is flame resistant.
  • Test makeup on a small area first.  Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.

These tips provided by the U.S. Fire Administration, FEMA, 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 (10/24) fire danger level is “high”.
