PALA TODAY – Friday, January 19, 2018

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

A high speed chase along Pechanga Parkway in Temecula ended at 10:15a this morning with CHP taking one suspect into custody.  That person’s vehicle ended up in the creek bed between Muirfield and Loma Linda.  The suspect was taken into custody in the adjacent park after a brief foot chase. 

The Camp Pendleton Marine found stabbed Tuesday has been identified as 18-year old Pfc. Ethan Barclay-Weberpal, a native of Wisconsin.  First responders found him dead from a stab wound in Area 52 in the northern part of the base Tuesday morning at about 7:45a.  Another unidentified Marine from the base’s School of Infantry is being held for the crime.  The victim’s family set up a GoFundMe page to offset burial costs, but will now use proceeds to establish a scholarship in Barclay-Weberpal’s name.  It’s the second stabbing death of a Camp Pendleton Marine in the last four weeks.  https://www.ocregister.com/2018/01/18/marine-being-held-in-connection-with-fatal-stabbing-of-another-marine-at-camp-pendletons-school-of-infantry/

The world’s least-likely candidates for Parent-of-the-Year, David and Louise Turpin were arraigned yesterday in Riverside Court with one of the largest ever contingents of media from all over the world jamming Presley Justice Center and an overflow room.  The pair from Perris pleaded not-guilty to 75 counts ranging from torture and cruelty to false imprisonment and one unspecified count of lewd conduct against a child under 14.  The local district attorney said yesterday the Turpins’ 13 children were beaten and only allowed to shower once a year.  Charges could be added or amended as the investigation continues.  Under a plan in the works by their captive children for the last two years, one escaped and alerted authorities last weekend.  If convicted, the Turpin parents face 94 years to life in prison.   https://www.pe.com/2018/01/18/here-are-all-75-of-the-felony-charges-filed-in-the-perris-child-torture-case/

San Diego County’s master plan for future development of McClellan-Palomar Airport was released yesterday, beginning a 45-day public review period.  The plan would modernize the airport to meet current FAA standards and improve efficiency.  Two public meetings are scheduled to present the plan and collect input.  The first is Tuesday, January 30 at 6p at the Holiday Inn on Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad.  The plan will be considered by the County Board of Supervisors later this year.  https://www.countynewscenter.com/mcclellan-palomar-airport-master-plan-released-for-public-comment/

Hot on the heels of Zillow.com’s announcement this week that lack of housing in San Diego is approaching crisis levels comes word from the moving van industry that exits from California are outpacing arrivals by the widest gap in 11 years.  Both last year and back in 2006 just 46% of professional moves in California were inbound.  No state had more outbound moves than California last year.  United, Atlas and Allied Van Lines combined reported a total of over 52k moves with 4k more outbound than inbound.  The total number of moves both in and out of the state are about 40% below that of 12 years ago. https://www.pe.com/2018/01/19/california-net-departures-by-moving-van-at-11-year-high/   

There was a major 6.3 magnitude earthquake this morning at 8:17a in the Gulf of California about 50 miles north of Loreto, Mexico.  It was felt throughout the southern two thirds of Baja California.  https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us2000cl83#executive

 

SPORTS   

In the NFL – Jacksonville will face Tom Brady and the Patriots in Foxboro Sunday at noon on CBS in the AFC Championship game.  The Eagles host the Vikings in the NFC Championship at 3:30p Sunday on Fox.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have promoted quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner to offensive coordinator.  He’ll replace Todd Haley, who was let go Wednesday after six seasons.  http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22145084/pittsburgh-steelers-elevate-quarterback-coach-randy-fichtner-offensive-coordinator-thursday

A Tom Brady Super Bowl 51 championship ring went to auction today.  It’s one very similar to Brady’s actual Super Bowl ring that players can authorize to have made for family and friends.  The ring has 260 diamonds compared with the team player rings that have 283 each and it’s about 10% smaller.  The value is almost $30k in materials alone.  It’s the first Brady award ever to come to market, according to Goldin Auctions.  He’s known to cherish his own memorabilia.  The theft of his Super Bowl 51 jersey led to an FBI investigation and its recovery from a Mexican journalist.  The auction ends February 17.  http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22152665/super-bowl-li-ring-authorized-tom-brady-auction

In the NBA – Cleveland forward LeBron James and Golden State guard Steph Curry topped the All-Star voting and will serve as captains in next month’s All-Star game in LA.  Other Eastern Conference starting players as voted by fans and a select group of media are Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, Boston’s Kyrie Irving, and Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan.  For the West the other starters are Houston’s James Harden, Golden State’s Kevin Durant, and Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins from New Orleans.  New this year – the two captains get to choose their teams, without regard for conference affiliation from among all starters and reserves.  The new format came after two boring All-Star games with little or no defense and the West scoring nearly 200 points each time.  http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/22145987/captains-starters-revealed-2018-nba-all-star-game

In College basketball – Just three Top 25 games last night, but two of them were upsets by unranked teams.  St. Mary’s edged #13 Gonzaga 74-71, and Nebraska buried #23 Michigan 72-52.  #2 Virginia had an easy win over Georgia Tech 64-48.  Now 3 and 3 in their conference, San Diego State’s next game is tomorrow at New Mexico.  Cal State San Marcos’ next game is also tomorrow, hosting Sonoma State.

San Diego State is once again considering the appropriateness of its Aztec mascot and the name The Aztecs.  Interim school president Sally Roush yesterday announced the creation of a 17-member task force to review the question.  Nominations for members on the task force will be taken now through Friday the 26th.  There will be five students, five staff or faculty and five alumni as well as two at-large community members in the group.  They’ll have until April 30 to advise Roush who says she’ll “make a final decision about the Aztec identity and mascot no later than May 31.”  In April of last year the SDSU Associated Students council rejected a plan to phase out the logo and mascot in a split 14-12 vote. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/aztecs/sd-sp-aztecs-mascot-nickname-task-force-0120-story.html

In the NHL – Ten games last night including two overtime and two shootouts.  The Flyers overcame a two goal deficit and Philadelphia’s Sean Courturier scored 18 seconds into OT to beat the visiting Maple Leafs 3-2.  Same score for Nashville over Phoenix in a shootout.  New Jersey scored 34 seconds into OT to beat the Capitals.  And the Blue Jackets topped the Stars 2-1 in a shootout in Columbus.  The Penguins handed the Kings their fifth consecutive loss 3-1.  Avalanche over the Sharks 5-3.  Las Vegas zapped the Lightning 4-1 in Tampa.  The Blues vetoed the Senators 4-1.  Rangers edged the Sabres 4-3.  The Bruins isolated the Islanders 5-2.  Currently, Tampa leads the league with 65 points – five ahead of Boston in the Atlantic division.  Vegas with 63 has a nine-point lead over second place San Jose in the Pacific.  In the Metropolitan and Central divisions, Washington and Nashville have the leads at 60 points each.  Nashville with a four-game win streak just took over the Central lead from Winnipeg who are stalled at 59 points after losing their last two games.  Tonight, the Kings play the Ducks in Anaheim.  LA is currently in 4th place in the Pacific with 53 points, followed by Anaheim in 5th with 51. http://www.espn.com/nhl/standings

In the minors – The San Diego Gulls host San Jose tonight and tomorrow night at Valley View arena.

In Major League Baseball – The Mets announced today they have invited former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow to spring training in Florida.  He spent last year in the Mets’ minor league system where he hit .226 with eight home runs and 52 RBIs in 126 games.  He was only 4 for 27 with eight strikeouts in last year’s Mets camp.  http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/22153340/new-york-mets-invite-tim-tebow-spring-training

In golf – Early in round 2 at La Quinta, Brandon Harkins, Jason Kokrak and Jon Rahm were tied at 11 under par for the tournament so far.  Rahm had yesterday’s best round at 10-under 62.  http://www.espn.com/golf/leaderboard

 

In Local high school sports:  

For Bonsall – no scheduled games today

For Great Oak – boys’ and girls’ basketball against Vista Murrieta beginning at 3:15p, freshmen hosting, the rest away; girls’ water polo at Murrieta Valley beginning at 4p; Tomorrow – varsity wrestling at the Young Guns Tournament and freshmen wrestling at La Costa Canyon, both beginning at 9a;  boys’ soccer hosting Chaparral beginning at 2p

BUSINE$$

As of midday trading, another mixed market today with the Dow down slightly and the broader indexes up by two to four tenths of a percent.  Gold had gained back much of yesterday’s big losses – up almost $8 to $1,335.20 an ounce.  West Texas Intermediate Crude futures were down 60 cents to $63.35 a barrel. 

Amazon announced today that it is raising its monthly fee for Prime from $10.99 to $12.99 per month or about $156 a year.  A yearly membership will still be $99.  Anyone with a dot-EDU e-mail address can get the student rate which is $$9 per year.  Membership gets you free two-day shipping, which for those who shop on Amazon a lot is worth it.  Walmart recently began offering free two-day shipping on orders of at least $35, but with no membership fee.  Online competitor Jet.com also has free two-day shipping with at least $35 spent.  Original streaming programming is becoming an area of competition for Amazon as well.  It’s included with Prime and competes with Hulu and Netflix.  Currently, 64% of people would prefer Prime over Netflix according to student loan company LendEDU. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/are-amazon-prime-subscriptions-really-worth-it-2018-01-19

Netflix is scheduled to report fourth quarter earnings on Monday.  Analysts are wondering if its recent $2 per month subscription price increase to $7.99 a month for the basic package scared away more customers than the increased revenue generated. The company has been a cash-burner and unprofitable so far in its streaming business.  https://www.marketwatch.com/story/netflix-earnings-analysts-await-update-on-how-price-increases-are-affecting-growth-2018-01-17

San Diego County’s unemployment rate remained steady in December at 3.3%.  That’s less than the state average of 4.2% and down from 3.9% the same time a year earlier.  https://patch.com/california/escondido/s/gc6ho/san-diego-county-unemployment-rate-remains-steady-at-3-3

 

LIFESTYLE / GREEN LIVING

This weekend at the movies, three new wide releases.  The war drama “12 Strong” starring Chris Hemsworth opens on 3k screens.  The action thriller “Den of Thieves” with Gerard Butler and 50 Cent opens on 2,400 screens.  And the drama “Forever My Girl” opens on 1k screens.  The comedy “I, Tonya” starring Margot Robbie and Allison Janney expands to 800 screens.  And “Phantom Thread” with Daniel Day-Lewis expands to 900 screens.  It’s unlikely any of them will be more popular than last week’s #1 and 2 films, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “The Post”.  http://www.boxofficemojo.com/schedule/

San Diego’s Petco Park is about to become the most electric place in Major League Baseball … hopefully for great baseball, but definitely for solar power.  Workers are installing 716 solar panels that will produce 12m kilowatt-hours of electricity over their projected 25 year life.  The project is bigger than all the solar systems installed by all other MLB teams combined.  That’s seven other parks.  The 336k watt project is expected to be online by the season opener on March 29.  The million dollar cost is expected to be recouped by the Padres in six or seven years through energy cost savings and renewable tax credits.  It is the city of San Diego’s intention through its Climate Action Plan to have 100% of the city’s energy coming from renewable sources and to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2035.  http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/energy-green/sd-fi-padres-solar-20180117-story.html
