An accident last night in Anza at about 8:20 on Highway 74 at Pacific Crest Trail left three people injured – one seriously, and the road closed for about an hour and a half, mainly for Life Flight to land. The worst of the three was air lifted to the hospital. http://www.pe.com/articles/accident-752355-three-anza.html
Yesterday’s Race for the Cure drew about 10k people to the Temecula Promenade mall for the 16th annual event. You can read all the details in an article by Tom Sheridan of the Riverside Press Enterprise. http://www.pe.com/articles/cancer-752341-breast-lightfoot.html
61-year old Robert Deegan has announced he’s retiring as president of Palomar Community College after leading the San Marcos school for the last ten years. He cites accomplishments including a spike in enrollment and the successful passage of a $694m bond issue that funded much of the recent construction on campus. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/oct/18/palomar-college-president-deegan-retirement/
It’s not on the Caltrans schedule for today but CHP did assign a unit for traffic control for work on the Highway 76 repaving project east of Pala today. So, you might encounter delays east of Valley Center Road heading up towards Red Gate. Wait times up to a half hour are possible with one lane escorted traffic. There is no good alternate route that won’t take at least that much longer.

In Major League Baseball – The World Series begins tomorrow with Kansas City hosting San Francisco. It’ll be televised on Fox beginning at 5.
In the NFL – The Chargers lost to Kansas City 23-20 in a game that quarterback Phil Rivers called, “not our best day.” San Diego led through much of the game up until the fourth quarter. They tied it just after the 2-minute warning, but a 48-yard field goal with 21 seconds left won it for KC. Rivers’ numbers were a little low for the day, completing just 17 of 31 for 205 yards with two touchdowns and two sacks. Brandon Oliver did most of the ground work for the Chargers gaining 67 yards on 15 carries. The Chiefs dominated the ball with 39 minutes of possession. The loss breaks the Chargers’ best win streak in years and leads into a short week as they get ready for the Broncos in Denver on Thursday. Speaking of whom … http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap?gameId=400554297

Here’s something you probably haven’t heard in years … there’s a gas war going on at retailers. Prices are at their lowest in 3 ½ years. Several stations in Murrieta and Escondido have cut prices 20 cents a gallon or more in just the last week trying to be lowest in the area. Three stations on Murrieta Hot Springs Road along with the Temecula Costco top the list of lowest prices in Riverside County today – a distinction that usually belongs to gas stations in the Coachella Valley. The Chevron at Murrieta Hot Springs and Margarita is lowest at $3.13 for a gallon of regular. That’s just a few cents above the national average of $3.09 and quite a bit below today’s statewide average of $3.49. Leading the list of low prices for all of Southern California are three stations in Escondido plus the San Marcos Costco, all at $3.08 or 3.09 a gallon. Today’s average price in San Diego County is $3.52. That’s down almost 10 cents in the last week, 22 cents from a year ago, and 26 cents lower than the same time last year. The Riverside County average is about 3 ½ cents less. A number of stations in California’s Central Valley are below $3 today. St. Louis is one of the lowest priced parts of the country right now with some stations there selling regular for less than $2.50 a gallon. www.gasbuddy.com

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 (10/20) fire danger level is “high”.
