PALA TODAY – Thursday 4/27/17

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 driver of a truck was seriously injured and Sprinter rail service disrupted for several hours last evening in Oceanside.  It happened about 7:24p when the truck, northbound on I-5 veered off the roadway, down an embankment and across train tracks at Oceanside Boulevard, coming to rest after striking a wall next to the tracks.  Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.  The unidentified victim was taken to Scripps La Jolla by Air Ambulance from Oceanside Airport. http://www.osidenews.com/2017/04/27/man-severely-injured-vehicle-travels-5-embankment-onto-train-tracks-near-oceanside-blvd/

Travel on the coastal rail corridor will halted for construction this weekend.  Officials are warning there will be no Coaster, Metrolink, or Amtrak service in San Diego County this Saturday and Sunday, April 29 and 30.  And Sprinter service between the Coast Highway station and Oceanside Transit Center will be replaced with a shuttle service.  There could be resulting delays elsewhere on the Sprinter line as well.  No replacement bus service is planned for the Coaster.  Rail service will resume as normal Monday morning with possible delays up to 15 minutes.  More information and alternatives are available at www.GoNCTD.comhttp://www.osidenews.com/2017/04/27/coastal-rail-closure-weekend/

The only thing that was missing were the chips and a few spices as a load of avocadoes spilled onto East Mission Road in Fallbrook yesterday morning.  At just after 8a, the truck was cut off by a vehicle at Mission and Olive.  The sudden braking caused the load of picked fruit to shift and spill onto the road where it was quickly mashed by traffic.  The impromptu guacamole party was cleared from by 9:45a. http://villagenews.com/local/spilled-avocados-lead-traffic-guacamole-east-mission/

A town hall meeting two weeks ago in Fallbrook gave the community the chance to discuss possible options for the old Fallbrook Hospital buildings.  The Fallbrook Regional Health District board of directors have a new executive director and a revised mission statement.  Director Bobbi Palmer explained how it’s no longer feasible for the community to have its own hospital and that the focus of the district now has to be on prevention care.  Suggestions for the old facility included use as a non-profit hub for the community and wellness programs for seniors, specifically cardiac rehabilitation.  Another town hall meeting is planned for May. http://villagenews.com/local/frhd-holds-town-hall-meeting-discuss-old-hospital-building-options/

The Environmental Group, Endangered Habitats League is suing the city of San Marcos over a controversial plan for 189 homes in the northwestern part of the city.  The claim is the development won’t leave enough room for wildlife.  The lawsuit claims the city is relying on an outdated environmental impact report for the so-called San Marcos Highlands project at the north end of Las Posas Road.  The plan calls for homes on 50 of the parcel’s 293 acres.  The remaining land is dedicated open space.  Wildlife corridors would be roughly 500 feet wide.  A spokesman for the plaintiff says recommendations call for such corridors to be more like 1k feet, or some species including bobcat and mule deer would risk isolation. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/communities/north-county/sd-no-san-marcos-sued-20170426-story.html 

 

SPORTS   

In the NBA playoffs – Washington poured it on in the 3rd quarter and held on to win Game 5 over Atlanta 103-99 last night.  They now lead the first round series three games to two.  Same for the Celtics over the Bulls as they beat Chicago last night 108-97.  Another pair of 3 to 2 game series could be decided tonight.  Toronto is at Milwaukee.  The Raptors are looking for win #4.  And the Spurs are at Memphis with San Antonio on the verge of clinching that series.  The Clippers face elimination by the Jazz tomorrow in Utah. 

In the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs – Round Two began last night.  Both visiting teams won.  The Predators won Game One against the Blues 4-3.  And the Ducks fell to the Oilers 5-3.  Tonight, the Senators will host the Rangers and the Capitals will host Pittsburgh.

In the minor league playoffs – The San Diego Gulls host Ontario for Game 3 in their best of five series Friday.

In Major League Baseball – A 3-run blast by Ryan Schimpf in the top of the 9th put the Padres ahead 6-5 in what would become an 8-5 win last night in Phoenix.  A two-run double by Yangervis Solarte accounted for the two additional runs.  Once again, nobody much seem to care.  The announced crowd of 12,215 was the smallest ever for a regular season home game at Chase Field.  Schimpf had only been batting .102 with a team-high 25 strike outs going into last night’s game.  The Angels beat the A’s in Anaheim by the same 8-5 score.  The Giants beat the Dodgers 4-3 in San Francisco on a walk-off sacrifice fly by Hunter Pence in the bottom of the 10th.  That was the only extra-innings game yesterday.  All three series continue today.

In the Minors – The Lake Elsinore Storm won their last two games at Visalia – 4-1 last night and 8-0 Tuesday.  In last night’s game, Ty France tripled and singled twice.  The Storm got all the runs they needed in the top of the 4th with an RBI single by Josh Naylor, who then scored on a two-run double by Miguel Del Castillo.  Game 4 of 4 is tonight.  The Storm move on to Inland Empire for the first in a weekend series tomorrow night.  http://www.milb.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?gid=2017_04_26_lesafa_visafa_1&t=g_rcp&sid=milb

In college baseball – San Diego State has three games coming up this weekend hosting New Mexico.  They lost to UC Riverside Tuesday 6-4.

In the NFL – This year’s draft begins today.  Cleveland gets first pick.

The Seahawks and Raiders have agreed to a swap that will send Marshawn Lynch to Oakland.  In exchange, Seattle gets Oakland’s 5th round draft pick next year and Oakland takes over Seattle’s spot in the 6th round.  Sources at ESPN say Lynch and the Raiders have a two-year agreement in place. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/19159591/marshawn-lynch-set-join-oakland-raiders-trade-seattle-seahawks-agreed-to 

In golf – The Zurich Classic of New Orleans got underway this morning.  Brian Stuard is the defending champion. 

 

Local high school sports: 

Bonsall – boys’ varsity golf against River Valley from Lakeside today

BUSINE$$

All three major U.S. stock exchanges were up at least slightly as of mid-afternoon trading.  The NASDAQ had the biggest gains at about a third of a percent.  Gold was up $2 to $1,266 an ounce, snapping a three-session losing streak.  Oil was down below $49 a barrel. 

Ford Motor Company’s first quarter profit fell 35% compared with a year ago over higher costs, mostly related to recalls. That caused the stock to fall 1.7% by mid-afternoon. 

The retail price of gasoline remains remarkably stable at a time of year when at the very least the switchover to summer blend gasoline should be causing prices to rise.  The average price of a gallon of regular in San Diego County is right where it was a month ago and down two cents from last week at exactly $3.00.  It’s $2.97 in Riverside County.  Nationwide, the price is trending down about 4 cents in the last week to $2.39.  All averages are more than 20 cents higher than the same time last year.   Today’s lowest local price is $2.57 at U.S. Gas on 5th at Centre City Parkway in Escondido.  In Murrieta, it’s $2.59 at Sam’s Club.  http://www.riversidegasprices.com/

A personal diary just 61 pages long was purchased yesterday by a Massachusetts collector at auction for almost $719k.  Only 12 of the 61 pages were hand-written – the rest typed.  It originally belonged to John F. Kennedy and was written before his Presidency during a short stint as a journalist just after World War II.  Entries can be seen at the website for RR Auctions.  Expensive as it was, such items tend to be good investments.  The only danger is if that celebrity or historical figure should somehow fall from grace. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/this-persons-diary-just-sold-for-more-than-700000-2017-04-27

 

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted yesterday in favor of measures to boost recycling and extend the life of local landfills.  The goal of the 4-nothing vote with Greg Cox away in Washington is to divert 75% of all trash fromo unincorporated areas away from landfills by 2025.  The current figure reported by contracted waste collection companies is 62%, which already exceeds the state’s minimum requirement of 50%.  County staff reported the areas requiring better recycling efforts are organic materials including landscape trimmings and food scraps, and construction and demolition materials.  Estimates are that two thirds of what goes into county landfills fall into those two categories.  Supervisors also voted to increase the franchise fee for trash hauling companies from $2.35 per ton to $6.96 per ton.  The fee had not been increased in 20 years.  http://www.countynewscenter.com/board-of-supervisors-vote-to-boost-recycling/

Officials from Indian Health Services testifying at the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs report that while levels of obesity and Type II diabetes are generally leveling off, the numbers are still staggering – particularly among the young.  While American Indians and Alaskan Natives are 2.3 times more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes than the general population, the rate for Native youth ages 10 to 19 is nine times that of the general population.  The rate more than doubled for those aged 15 to 19 in the years from 1990 to 2009.  An 11-year old from the Salt River Pima-Maricopa community told Senators, the kids don’t want to give up Hot Cheetos.  “They’re addicted to them.  They buy four bags a day from the ice cream man.  We must destroy the ice cream man!”  Chairman of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, Vinton Hawley says it’s began when traditional subsistence lifestyles were suddenly replaced with federal programs that rely on store-bought foods, poor access to fresh produce, and increased consumption of fast food.  https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/culture/health-wellness/destroy-ice-cream-man-native-youth-testifies-diabetes-crisis/?mqsc=ED3883560
