LOCAL AND REGIONAL HEADLINES

Pala Fire Department & the Pala Band of Mission Indians

Public Service Announcement

February 15, 2017

 

In preparation of the storm arriving this week the Pala Fire Department and the Pala Band of Mission Indians would like to encourage everyone to be prepared.  Here are some ideas:

 

In the event of an emergency it’s a good idea to have an emergency kit that will last each member of your household up to 72 hours.  You can find detailed information on the FEMA website: https://www.ready.gov/build-a-kit

  • A sufficient supply of necessary medications
  • Non-perishable foods and non-electrical can opener
  • Bottled water
  • First-Aid Kit
  • Cash; in the event the power goes out and the ATM does not work or roads close
  • Battery operated lights/flashlights and extra batteries
  • Portable radio

 

Prepare in the event of power outage or flooding:

  • Check on elders
  • Do not cross flowing water or flooded roads, stay off the roads if you do not need to be on them
  • Avoid areas subject to flooding, potential of falling rocks, mud slides, etc.; no site-seeing
  • Weatherproof home, get sandbags if needed, tie things down outside your home
  • Minimize cellphone usage if power goes out
  • If you begin to experience flooding in your home, unplug appliances to prevent electrical shock when power comes back on
  • When powerlines are down, water is in your home, or before you evacuate, turn off gas, power and water. 
  • Top off your vehicles’ fuel tanks

 

Keep yourself informed:

 

The Eastern Municipal Water District, which serves Menifee, Winchester, parts of Temecula and other points north yesterday voted to drop their Water Shortage Contingency Plan from stage 3 to stage 2.  The difference to consumers is that if they exceed their “water budget”, they will no longer pay significantly higher rates for the excess used.  The penalty rates had been imposed in June of 2015 in response to Governor Brown’s mandatory conservation orders.  http://myvalleynews.com/uncategorized/emwd-reduces-restrictions-water-consumption/

On a split vote, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted last month to have staff develop an ordinance banning marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated San Diego County.  Dianne Jacob, Kristin Gaspar, and Bill Horn voted for the complete ban with a five-year amortization period for existing facilities.  Meanwhile, some cities in the county are embracing marijuana.  Once known as the poinsettia capital of the world, Encinitas is exploring allowing struggling flower farmers to cultivate pot as a way of continuing the city’s agricultural heritage and preventing new housing from completely taking over remaining farmland.  http://villagenews.com/local/supervisors-direct-staff-develop-marijuana-dispensary-ban-ordinance/ www.sandiegouniontribune.com

One of the defendants in a gang-related attempted murder case in Fallbrook from December of 2014 was recently convicted.  Former Fallbrook resident, 41-year old Jason Samuel Hernandez was found guilty of attempted murder on a 27 year old woman at the Econo Lodge on South Mission as a way of “cleaning house” within the gang’s ranks.   http://villagenews.com/local/man-convicted-attempted-murder-case/

Work on a huge sports complex in Lake Elsinore could begin as soon as April.  The city council on Tuesday approved a development agreement between LE Diamond Holdings and the city, giving the company the right to build the project based on specifications approved back in October.  Plans call for a 520k square foot structure that could host regional and national volleyball and basketball tournaments, a sports bar and restaurant, and other amenities on 23 acres north of The Diamond minor-league baseball stadium. http://www.pe.com/articles/diamond-825585-sports-complex.html  

The County of San Diego is auctioning off its old vehicles next week.  The online auction begins at 8a Monday and closes at 1p the following Monday, February 27.  Vehicles can be viewed online at the TNT Public Auction website and in person in Ramona at 369 Main Street next Saturday and Monday, February 25 and 27. https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=122270

The Pauma Valley Community Association is holding its annual meeting and fundraiser Tuesday, February 21 beginning at 5:30 with dinner at 6:30p.  It’s at the 11-acre park the association oversees just east of St. Francis church near the Lazy H.  The Intertribal Bird Singers will perform.  http://www.valleycenter.com/articles/pauma-valley-community-association-to-hold-annual-meeting/

BUSINE$$

After hitting new record highs yesterday, stocks were down slightly today – between a fifth and a third of a percent for the three major U.S. indexes as of midday trading.  Gold was up $7 to $1,240 an ounce and oil was up about 25 cents. 

Shares of Groupon shot up more than 23% yesterday on news that it had acquired competitor LivingSocial for next to nothing last quarter and that holiday sales were up 2%.  Groupon has been plagued with losses and virtually flat sales.  The stock moderated somewhat early today and Wedbush Securities downgraded it from outperform to neutral.  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/groupon-got-quite-a-deal-on-livingsocial-and-the-stock-is-soaring-2017-02-15

San Diego State University is considering multiple options for redeveloping the site of Qualcomm Stadium.  The Chargers’ move to LA opens the 166-acre site up for redevelopment.  School spokeswoman Gina Jacobs says the school wants this to be a transparent process that advances academic and athletic programs and the interests of the citizens of San Diego.  San Diego State wants the site for campus expansion as well as the continued hosting Aztec football as it has for decades.  It’s already connected to the main campus by a short trolley ride.  A group of La Jolla investors recently proposed a new stadium to host Major League Soccer and college football.  SDSU would contribute $100m for its share of the new stadium.  On Tuesday, developer Doug Manchester contacted the NFL, informing commissioner Roger Goodell that the group was interested in building a 70k seat stadium that would be available for a return by the Chargers, the Raiders if their deal in Las Vegas fails, or possibly some other team.  http://www.kpbs.org/news/2017/feb/15/sdsu-talking-with-multiple-parties-seeking-to/

 

LIFESTYLE AND GREEN LIVING

New movies going into wide release this weekend include the comedy “Fist Fight” staring Ice Cube, Charlie Day and Tracy Morgan.  Matt Damon stars in the action film set in China, “The Great Wall” along with Willem Dafoe.  And the horror flick “A Cure for Wellness” opens on 2,700 screens – a few less than the other two.  http://www.boxofficemojo.com/schedule/

The 12th annual Art of the Avocado Competition is underway in Fallbrook, leading up to April’s annual Avocado Festival.  Entries in any medium and focusing on avocados can be submitted to the Brandon Gallery at Main and Alvarado in Fallbrook.

The next trout plant at Lake Wohlford will be next Wednesday, February 22 with 1,500 pounds of the fish being added to the lake.  Park hours are 6a to 5:30p seven days a week.  Private boats and other equipment are prohibited due to the danger of contamination from an invasive species of mussel.  Permits and boat rentals are at the Ranger Station at the lake.  Fishing licenses, bait and tackle must be purchased elsewhere.  The Ranger station phone number for more information is 760 839 4346. http://www.valleycenter.com/articles/next-trout-plant-is-wednesday/

San Diego civic leaders on Tuesday announced the completion of a project that more than doubled the capacity for drivers of electric vehicles to recharge at public charging station.  The number of public charging stations in San Diego is now 57 with ports for up to 68 vehicles.  They’re located at places like parks, beaches and libraries.  The additional stations were funded by a half million dollar grant from the California Energy Commission.  Charging rates cost $1.75 to $1.80 per hour with credit card.  http://www.kpbs.org/news/2017/feb/15/san-diego-doubles-electric-vehicle-charging/

The tipping point for renewable energy is nearly here.  Experts say energy from renewable sources, primarily wind and solar could jump from the current 4% worldwide to as much as 36% by 2035.  At that time, the mix of wind and solar versus coal and gas energy generation will be about equal.  The marginal cost of the two could reach parity in about 2025.  The cost of solar energy is quickly dropping as technology advances.  Wind turbine service engineer is one of the fastest-growing job categories in the U.S. these days with a median salary of $51k a year.  And China says it will close 85 coal-powered plants and instead invest $350b towards renewable energy sources. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-tipping-point-for-renewable-energy-is-nearly-here-2017-02-15
