PALA TODAY – Thursday October 19, 2017

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

City and county officials from San Diego gathered yesterday at Gillespie Field in El Cajon to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2007 wildfires, taking the occasion to urge residents to prepare for the next emergency.  Residents were encouraged to create a personal disaster plan, practice evacuations with their entire family, register their cell phones with AlertSanDiego for disaster notifications, and create defensible firefighting space around their homes.  The 2007 fires including the Witch, Poomacha and Rice Canyon fires were the largest and most destructive in county history.  The fires in North County led the Pala tribe to create this radio station with the prime directive of providing information to tribal members and all residents of the Pala area in the event of an emergency.   October is the worst month of the year for destructive fires coming as it does at the end of a long hot summer when brush, trees and grasses are driest.   Santa Ana weather conditions common at this time of year then add abnormally high temperatures combined with high winds and low humidity, creating the perfect conditions for devastating wildfires.  Another strong Santa Ana is predicted to begin this weekend.  http://www.countynewscenter.com/on-wildfires-anniversary-concern-that-residents-are-less-prepared/

The 34-year old man who died Saturday after being shot by a Sheriff’s taser in San Marcos has been identified as Kristopher Birtcher from Valley Center.  A report came in to 911 at about 3:44p Saturday of a disoriented man apparently under the influence of drugs at the entrance of Hobby Lobby on Grand in San Marcos.  As a deputy and EMT attempted to evaluate Birtcher, he became uncooperative and attempted to flee.  Two bystanders assisted and the Taser was deployed.  He was given Naloxone to treat a perceived drug overdose.  His condition deteriorated as he was transported to a local emergency room where he died at 4:32p.  The results of an autopsy are pending.  https://www.valleycenter.com/articles/overdose-leads-to-death-of-vc-man/

Valley View Casino & Hotel has announced plans for a $50m expansion set to begin in April.  The changes include 42k square feet of additional gaming space, a new brew-pub themed restaurant, additional buffet seating, a new slot tournament area and complete renovation of the casino, which will remain in operation through the construction.  The architect is Delawie out of San Diego and the general contractor is Swinerton.  Once expanded, Valley View is expected to add 80 new jobs.  https://www.valleycenter.com/articles/valley-view-casino-hotel-announces-casino-expansion-project/

Groundbreaking ceremonies are this Saturday for three new facilities on one 16-acre parcel of land in Borrego Springs.  Construction will then begin on a new county park, library and Sheriff’s office.  The groundbreaking will be at 12:30p at 2661 Sunset Road in Borrego Springs.  (SD County media release)

Expect to see lots of bicyclists between Escondido and Palomar Mountain this Sunday.  From 7:30a to 5p it’s the San Diego Granfondo and Challenged Athletes Foundation ride from Kit Carson Park up and down the mountain.  The 105 mile round trip route begins north on Bear Valley Parkway past Lake Wohlford onto Valley Center Road through Rincon, then up 76 onto South Grade with a stop at Mother’s Kitchen, then back down East Grade, through Mesa Grande, circling back from Santa Ysabel onto 76, then back through Valley Center on Cole Grade Road.  https://www.valleycenter.com/articles/bicyclists-will-clog-vc-roads-sunday/

 

SPORTS   

In Major League Baseball – The home teams continue to win in the ALCS.  The Yankees shut out what had been the best American League team offensively during the regular season as they beat the Astros 5-0 in New York.  They now lead the series 3 games to 2.  The ALCS returns to Houston for Game 6 and a possible Game 7 Friday and Saturday.  Meanwhile in Chicago, the Cubs avoided a sweep by the Dodgers, edging past LA 3-2.  A pair of solo home runs by Contreras and Baez put Chicago in the lead in the 2nd inning.  LA answered with a Cody Bellinger home run in the 3rd.  Javier Baez got his second homer of the night in the 5th with what proved to be the game winner.  Justin Turner homered to left center in the top of the 8th.  But that was all.  Game 4 is tonight at 5p in Chicago.  Clayton Kershaw will be the starting pitcher for LA.  It’ll be his opportunity to pitch the Dodgers into his first World Series and their first since 1988. 

In the NFL – Tonight in Oakland, the Raiders host the Chiefs. 

The league has fined Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell $48k for a late hit on Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith last Sunday.  The minimum fine for the infraction is only $9k.   Mitchell was fined as a repeat offender.  He plans to appeal.  http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21077532/mike-mitchell-pittsburgh-steelers-fined-48k-hit-alex-smith

In College Football – Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich was fired with cause today on a 10-3 vote by school trustees.  Just two days ago the board fired men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino.  Both have been on administrative leave since being named in the FBI’s ongoing investigation into fraud and corruption where recruited students were steered to Adidas, certain sports agents and financial advisors.  Both men deny any wrongdoing.  http://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/21068230/louisville-cardinals-fire-athletic-director-tom-jurich

Alabama wide-receiver Donnie Lee was arrested on a domestic violence charge today.  The senior from Northport, Alabama has since been released from the team.  He had not participated in team activities since injuring a knee in August.  http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/21078542/alabama-walk-wide-receiver-donnie-lee-arrested-charge-domestic-assault-early-thursday

In the NBA – Last night – a bunch of season openers.   The Pacers snipped the Nets 140-131.  The Magic beat the Heat 116-109.  The Bucks kicked the Celtics 108-100.  Grizzlies mauled the Pelicans 103-91.  Hawks over the Mavericks 117-111.  The Jazz beat the Nuggets 106-96.  The Spurs gouged the Timberwolves 107-99.  The Trail Blazers doused the Suns 124-76.  And the Rockets crowned the Kings 105-100. 

In the NHL – Last night in LA, the Kings buried Montreal 5-1.  Adrian Kempe had his first career hat trick.  In St. Louis, the Blues’ Jaden Schwartz also had a hat trick in their 5-2 win over the visitors from Chicago.  And Toronto jumped out to a four goal lead in the first period and never looked back, beating the visiting Detroit Red Wings 6-3. 

In the minors – The Gulls next game is tomorrow at Stockton. 

In golf – at the CJ Cup in Korea, Justin Thomas has a 3-stroke lead over five other players after round 1.  He shot a fantastic 9-under par 63 today.  http://www.espn.com/golf/leaderboard

BUSINE$$

As of midday trading, stocks were down just slightly on the Dow and S&P – off about a half percent on the broader NASDAQ index.  Gold was up more than $7 to over $1,290 an ounce.  And oil was down about 70 cents to $51.34 a barrel. 

A sharp rebound in U.S. shale oil production continues with no signs of slowing.  That will likely keep oil prices even for several years as OPEC continues to try to manipulate the world market by cutting production.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/opec-beware-the-rebound-in-us-shale-oil-production-hasnt-peaked-yet-2017-10-19

McDonald’s is expected to announce third quarter earnings first thing Tuesday morning.  They’re expected to be up about 23 cents a share.  Analysts believe $1 drinks, premium burgers and plans for food delivery will restore value and convenience to the chain.  RBC rates McDonald’s to outperform and sets the target share price at $180.  Instinet rates them a buy and raised its target price today from $176 to $180.  McDonald’s is currently trading at just over $166.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/mcdonalds-earnings-1-drinks-premium-sandwiches-and-digital-will-drive-growth-2017-10-19

Researchers now believe that brain activity is a better predictor of consumer behavior than questionnaires.   Researchers at the University of Michigan, Stanford, and the Rotterdam School of Management gave study participants real money to invest in documentary film projects, gave them a description and showed them an image from each film, then asked them to rate how well they liked it and how they thought the film would do on Kickstarter crowdfunding.  Then the participants were given brain scans.  The scans did a better job of choosing the successful films than the participants’ conscious decisions.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-scans-of-your-brain-could-change-the-future-of-retail-2017-10-19

The property in Valley Center adjacent to Weston Towne Center has gone on the market.  The development plan proposed building 214 apartments, 276 single family homes and about 108k square feet of commercial space along with 17 acres of open space.  Offers are being accepted through November 17.  https://www.valleycenter.com/articles/property-next-to-weston-towne-center-for-sale/

The Murrieta City Council overrode the Planning Commission’s recommendation and voted Tuesday to approve a conditional use permit for Jimmy’s Express Car Wash to be located on a one acre lot near Avenida Acacias and Los Alamos Road.  Commissioners in August had recommended denial of the permit based on increased traffic congestion.  http://www.pe.com/2017/10/18/murrieta-council-overrides-planning-commission-oks-car-wash/

 

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

Governor Brown this week signed into law AB 19, which waives tuition fees for full-time first-year community college students in California.  At $46 per credit, with a minimum of 12 units, that’s $552 per semester being picked up by state taxpayers.  A student taking 18 units would get $828 in tuition per semester waived.  Students would still be responsible for the cost of books and other expenses.  The move follows other states including Oregon, Tennessee, and Rhode Island looking to increase college education in the work force through making college more affordable.  http://www.eastcountymagazine.org/one-year-free-community-college-tuition-under-new-ca-law
