    Southwestern College officials are working with The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) to notify staff and students who were possibly exposed to tuberculosis. The period of exposure is from Aug. 20 to Nov. 8.

    The college was notified by the HHSA that a student enrolled in the fall semester has been verified to have tuberculosis. The exposure was limited to the students and faculty in the three classes on the Chula Vista campus in which the student was enrolled. 

    The college sent an email to the students and faculty who were directly exposed.

    The college will provide no-cost testing to identified students, faculty and staff starting Dec. 3 to Dec. 14 at the college's Student Health Services building on the main campus room 601F in Chula Vista. 

    “The initial infection usually has no symptoms, so we recommend testing for all those exposed to assure they are not infected,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “For any infected individuals, early diagnosis and prompt treatment can prevent the infectious form of the disease.”

    Tuberculosis is transmitted from person-to-person through indoor air during prolonged contact with an infectious individual. Most people who are exposed do not become infected. Symptoms of infectious TB include persistent cough, fever, night sweats and unexplained weight loss.

    For individuals with symptoms of TB, or who are immune-compromised and may not show symptoms, it is important that the person sees their medical provider to rule out TB. Tuberculosis can be cured with antibiotics.

    Individuals who would like more information on this potential exposure are asked to call:

    Southwestern Students Health Services (619) 482-6354

    County TB Control Program (619) 692-8621

    The number of annual TB cases in San Diego County has decreased since the early 1990s and has stabilized in recent years. There were 258 cases reported in 2016 and 237 in 2017. To date, 175 cases have been reported in 2018.

    Keane Webre-Hayes, the teenager who survived a shark attack in September, and three Good Samaritans whose quick action likely saved his life were honored Wednesday by the Mayor and City Council of Encinitas.

    Keane, 13, was given the Mayor's Certificate of Bravery for displaying "bravery in the face of danger," in the Sept. 29 attack at Beacon's Beach.

    The teenager was diving for lobster at when an 11-foot-long great white shark bit him, injuring his arm, face, ear, shoulder and back. Scars were visible on his left cheek Wednesday as he accepted his award.

    His mother Ellie Hayes was watching her son from a parking lot on the bluffs above the beach and could hear her son's screams.

    Keane called for help and swam to a nearby kayak where three men, two with first responder training, applied immediate first aid and brought him to shore.

    “He had the good sense to think ‘I probably can’t make it all the way to the shore because I might pass out,' and he swam away from the shore to the boat which was nearby and they were able to help him right away," Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear said.

    Keane was rushed to Rady Children's Hospital in Linda Vista in critical condition and stayed there for several days.

    At a press conference a few days after the attack, Rady Children's Hospital Chief of Pediatric Surgery, Dr. Tim Fairbanks, said the men in the kayak and other Good Samaritans who helped apply pressure to Keane's wounds on the beach before paramedics arrived deserve partial credit for saving his life.

    More than that, though, Fairbanks said Keane was alive because "He made a decision to survive and got help.”

    Mayor Blakespear said that Keane participated in the city's Junior Lifeguard program where kids are taught to remain calm in high-pressure situations.

    "He was demonstrating a clear-headedness that is important, particularly for someone his age, but also probably rare," she said.

    After receiving his certificate from the mayor, Keane wasted no time thanking the three men and the rest of the first responders who helped him that day, all of whom were present for the ceremony.

    “Thank you, Matthew, Andrew, and Chad for just being there and talking me through it," he said. "Also, I want to thank Andrew for being in the water when there was an 11-foot great white shark swimming around."

    He also thanked first responders worldwide who weren't didn't respond to the attack for their selflessness.

    "They chose their job. They said ‘I want to help people,’ it didn’t choose them. It really means a lot to know that people want to do good," he said.

    Mayor Blakespear proclaimed Nov. 28 in honor of Matthew, Andrew and Chad and their "quick thinking, bravery and selfless action."

    "They did everything they could to get him to safety and to make sure that he was well, and that is something that we need to recognize," Blakespear said about the men.

    In the days and weeks following the attack, the Encinitas community rallied for Keane in a way that inspired many.

    A Go Fund Me page was created to help with medical bills, his youth flag football team fundraised, he was given a lifetime fishing license by the California Wildlife Officers Foundation, and "Good Morning America" even followed him to school on his first day back following the attack.

    A man and a pregnant woman were hospitalized Wednesday after gunfire from another car caused them to crash on State Route 78.

    The victims crashed in eastbound lanes near Emerald Drive before 8 p.m. The CHP said one of the victims was injured by gunfire and the other was hurt in the crash but didn’t say which.

    They were taken to Palomar Hospital and are expected to survive their injuries.

    Meanwhile, the Oceanside Police Department said it was investigating a report of a shooting involving the same two cars, the victims’ Acura Integra and the suspects’ black sedan, possibly a BMW or Volkswagen, on Center Avenue near Horne Street in Oceanside.

    The CHP said four suspects in the black sedan chased the Acura south on Interstate 5 then east on SR-78. Several shots were fired car-to-car before the crash.

    Police are still on the lookout for the suspects.

    The crash closed the eastbound lanes of SR-78 just before Emerald drive but they have since reopened.

    Investigating officers say they were able to get information from two witnesses. The case is being handled by CHP and OPD.

    The USA BMX Grand Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma were dominated by San Diego riders.

    Hayden Passanisi, 8, was the Cruiser National Champion, Tyler Brown was the Vet Pro National Champion and Alise Willoughby, formerly Alise Post, was the women’s Pro National Champion, despite not racing on her favorite bike.

    “The really cool thing about what Hayden, myself and Alise have done is that there only 7 national number one’s that you can win and Chula Vista brought back 3 of the 7,” Brown said.

    For Willoughby, a 2016 Olympic BMX silver medalist, this National Championship completed a perfect season of racing.

    “I was able to cap off the season undefeated on U.S. soil, which was pretty amazing,” she said. “I won 23 out of 23 races I raced in the U.S. this year, which was pretty cool.”

    When it comes to BMX races, they don’t get much bigger than the USA BMX Grand Championships.

    “This last weekend was the biggest BMX race in the entire world,” Brown said.

    “It’s like the Super Bowl of BMX,” Willoughby added.

    Brown is not only a national champ, he’s also a coach. Brown coaches Passanisi and hundreds of other kids through the Chula Vista BXM program at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center.

    “This facility is amazing. It’s something that is a true passion for me. When I was a young kid, BMX changed my life in a positive way and now it’s my opportunity to give that to the next generation of kids. To see kids like Hayden bring back national number ones and see the success the riders have had here on a national scale, but more importantly on a local scale, we have kids that are first-time riders that have never done it before, that come out and just have fun on their bikes. That’s what it’s all about .”

    Cottonwood Golf Club’s owner has applied for a permit to turn three golf greens in Rancho San Diego into a sand mine for 10 years.

    “This isn’t the place! This isn’t the place,” Barbara Oberndorfer said at a Wednesday night meeting, shaking her head.

    If approved, an estimated eight or nine trucks per hour would roll in and out of the mine off Willow Glen Drive, according to the developer's environmental study.

    Oberndorfer lives about a mile from the course.

    “It doesn’t matter what time of the day they want to start. It's too much. It's just too much. We’re already bottlenecked up here as it is when it's school time or work time.”

    To help with traffic congestion, one possibility is the trucks would run during off-peak times, between 4 and 6 a.m., then start back up again between 9:30 a.m and 3 p.m.

    There will be a traffic impact report done that will determine what, if any, mitigation can be done.

    John Cloud of New West Development the company working with the property owner, said additional lanes or more traffic signals could be added.

    Some residents signed petitions opposing the mine that's expected to generate 570,000 tons of sand per year.

    That sand will be used to make concrete and asphalt for roads and building homes.

    Two years after the plan starts the land would begin to be filled-in until the project ends.

    “Nothing in the plan is in the best interest of the community," shouted one person in the crowd.

    Bill Folsom doesn’t agree. He’s in favor of the sand mine, considering it could shorten transportation times for construction materials in the area.

    “It does make it safer and get the pollution. The greenies should be happy to make the trucks drive a shorter distance,” he said.

    The permitting process could take years before mining is allowed to begin.

    The County Board of Supervisors will have the final say.

    The Department of Veterans Affairs told congressional staffers that it will not reimburse veterans who have been paid less than they were owed after student veterans across the country said they have received delayed or incorrect GI Bill benefit payments, NBC News reported

    The news conflicts with a promise VA officials made to a House committee earlier this month that it would reimburse those veterans who received less than the full amount they were due. Two committee aides told NBC the VA said it could not make retroactive payments without auditing its previous education claims, which it said would delay future claims.

    Some veterans have been forced into desperate financial straits stemming from a change in calculating housing allowances under the Forever GI Bill, which President Donald Trump signed into law in July 2017. When its computers were unable to process that change, the VA quickly faced a backlog of veterans’ claims three times higher than normal.

    Because of those issues, the VA had announced earlier on Wednesday that it would delay the Forever GI Bill housing allowance changes until Dec. 2019 — and again promised that retroactive payments would be made to those who did not receive a correct amount. But officials told congressional staffers that once the system is made right next year, they would not make retroactive payments to those who were underpaid because of the housing miscalculations.

    When asked for comment, a VA spokesman reiterated that the agency would delay paying housing allowances in accordance with the new Forever GI Bill until the spring term of 2020 and instead pay housing allowances based on Department of Defense's older Basic Housing Allowance rates.

    Porn star Stormy Daniels said her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, went against her wishes in filing a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump, NBC News reported

    Daniels, in a statement first reported Wednesday by the Daily Beast, said that aside from the defamation case, Avenatti "has spoken on my behalf without my approval," and started a new fundraising site to raise money for her without her knowledge.

    Avenatti told NBC News he was surprised by his client's statement, and said "a number of things" in it were "not accurate." He did not elaborate on what was inaccurate.

    The brother of a man found dead along with his wife and two children inside a burning New Jersey mansion has been charged with murder in their deaths, law enforcement sources confirmed to News 4 Thursday. 

    Additional details are expected to be revealed at a news briefing later in the morning. 

    Paul Caneiro is charged with four counts of murder in the deaths of his brother Keith Caneiro, his wife Jennifer and their two kids, Jesse and Sophia. 

    Keith Caneiro was found shot to death outside the family's Colts Neck home last week while the other three were found inside the burning home.

    Officials say all were slain before the fire.

    A few hours earlier that same day, another blaze occurred at the Ocean Township home of Paul Caneiro. He has also been charged with setting fire to his own house and has been in custody since. His attorney in that case, Robert Honecker, has maintained his innocence. Honecker did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the newest charges.

    A joint wake for the slain family will be held at noon on Dec. 2, with their funeral following at 3 p.m

    The Dead Sea, which lies between Israel and Jordan, is retreating by more than three feet a year, creating sinkholes that swallow up buildings and roads, and causing upheaval in tourism industry, NBC News reported.

    Damming and mineral extraction have contributed to the decline, along with evaporating seawater.

    A $1.5-billion project to build a desalination facility in Jordan aims to transform Red Sea water into drinking water and pump the remaining salty brine into the Dead Sea. The best-case scenario would see construction begin in early 2021 and take around three-and-a-half years to complete.

    A grizzly bear killed a woman and her 10-month-old baby girl at their cabin in remote northwest Canada this week, NBC News reported.

    Gjermund Roesholt found the bodies of his wife, local teacher Valerie Theoret, and their daughter Adele on Monday around 3 p.m., according to the chief coroner of the Yukon.

    The bear charged at Roesholt as he returned to the cabin from fur trapping. He fatally shot the animal, the coroner said, then discovered his family's bodies outside the cabin — Theoret and Adele had apparently been taking a walk when they were attacked.

    "Valerie Theoret was a valued educator, and students and staff will miss her dearly. Our heartfelt condolences are with her family and friends, as well as staff and students who are grieving," said a Yukon department of education official in a statement.

    You can go to Walmart to buy toothpaste and shampoo, order glasses or fulfill a drug prescription. Now, some customers can also get therapy, reported.

    A new outpatient mental health clinic has opened inside a Walmart store in Carrollton, Texas, north of Dallas. People can walk in, call or make an appointment online to see a licensed mental health professional about problems such as anxiety, depression, grief, relationship troubles or the stresses of everyday living. 

    Beacon Health Options, a Boston-based behavioral health services company, is leasing space in the store and runs the clinic. It’s the first such practice Beacon has opened in a retail setting, the company announced in a news release this week, noting the location was chosen for its convenience. More than 10 million Texans live in an area considered to have a shortage of mental health care professionals, the company added.

    Executives said the goal is to offer mental health services to people in rural communities who might otherwise not get care.

    A new study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that headlights on nearly half of 2018 model cars tested by the group do not adequately light the road, and most “good-rated” headlights only come with optional packages or an upgraded trim.

    According to the IIHS, out of 424 headlight possibilities across trims on 2018 models tested by the group, 67 percent earned a "marginal" or "poor" rating because of inadequate visibility for drivers, excessive glare from low beams for oncoming drivers, or both.

    The group said that 32 of 165 models tested earned the highest rating of good for their best-available headlights, while 58 models earned the second-highest rating of "acceptable" on their best-available lights.

    The study also found that many base-line models have lower-than-average quality headlights, with good-quality lights only available on certain trims or as an optional feature that can often cost consumers a lot more.

    The Kia Soul, for instance, earned a good rating for its best-available headlights, but consumers must pay an additional $3,000 to $6,000 for a package on one of the top two trim lines to get them. This increases the Soul’s base model — and it’s poor-rated headlights — from $16,000 to nearly $26,000.

    "Consumers shouldn't have to buy a fully loaded vehicle to get the headlights they need to safely drive at night," said IIHS spokesman David Aylor. "All new vehicles should come with good headlights."

    The only 2018 models that the IIHS found to come with good-rated headlights, no matter the trim line or options package, are the Genesis G90 and the Lexus NX.

    The Chevrolet Volt, Mercedes Benz E class, Genesis G80 and Toyota Camry had "good" best-available headlights while its less expensive trims still earned an "acceptable" rating, the IIHS said.

    Meanwhile, some manufacturers are leaving drivers in the dark. Poor-rated headlights are the only ones available on 43 models evaluated by the IIHS.

    "Headlights are essential crash avoidance technology," IIHS said in a news release announcing the study's findings. "About half of all fatal crashes in the U.S. occur in the dark, and more than a quarter occur on unlit roads. Headlights have an obvious role to play in preventing nighttime crashes, but not all headlights perform their job equally."

    Engineers at IIHS measure how far light is projected from the low beams and the high beams as the vehicle travels straight and around curves. They also consider the amount of visibility provided by both high and low beams and whether they are creating excessive glare for oncoming drivers.

    In its evaluations, IIHS engineers found LEDs or high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps, scored better than halogen projector headlights. They are also more expensive.

    The IIHS says since it started grading headlights two years ago, manufacturers have made improvements to improve ratings. That’s because good-rated headlights are required to qualify for a Top Safety Pick award.

    The homeless man who became famous, and then notorious, for allegedly fabricating a story in order to raise money for himself and his conspirators is headed to New Jersey where the scheme apparently unfolded, according to prosecutors.

    Johnny Bobbitt waived extradition back to Burlington County at a brief hearing in Philadelphia Thursday morning.

    The 35-year-old will be sent to New Jersey once his pending legal matters in Pennsylvania are resolved to face fraud charges stemming from an elaborate GoFundMe scheme.

    The Marine vet won't be sent back to New Jersey until he attends a probation violation hearing that's scheduled for Monday in Philadelphia.

    Bail has also been revoked for Bobbitt, who has remained behind bars since his Nov. 14 arrest.

    Bobbitt was charged in Burlington County with conspiracy and theft by deception for an alleged GoFundMe plot that "hoodwinked an awful lot of people," authorities said.

    The so-called conspiracy involved South Jersey residents Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico. A photo circulated on the internet showing McClure and Bobbitt on the side of Interstate 95 last year after Bobbitt had supposedly used his last $20 to help the woman fill her gas tank.

    Soon, the heartwarming story landed on a GoFundMe campaign that went viral and raised raised more than $400,000 from thousands of people.

    But once the relationship soured, law enforcement officials investigating the case stumbled on a 2012 Facebook post from Bobbitt. It was of a photo, very similar to the one of Bobbitt and McClure, featuring the homeless man with a different woman in North Carolina. That woman had apparently run out of gas and had a flat tire in a Walmart parking lot, prosecutors said.

    Bobbitt claimed to have used the last of his “supper money” to help her out, Burlington County prosecutor Scott Coffina said.

    “I don’t think that’s a coincidence,” he said.

    The accusation is part of an ongoing investigation into Bobbitt, McClure and D’Amico. Prosecutors contend that the trio conspired to create a fraudulent GoFundMe campaign and keep the money for themselves.

    The scheme could have worked had McClure and D'Amico not kept more than agreed for themselves, fraud and forensic expert Howard Silverstone said.

    “If the three of them would have … divvied up the money and gone about their business, no one would have any reason to question it,” he said.

    Instead, the group became entangled in a bitter court battle that has led investigators to charge all of them for fraud.

    McClure and D'Amico had been dating at the time of the conspiracy, but they have since broken up. McClure has publicly blamed her ex-boyfriend for masterminding the plot and is claiming innocence. 

    Earlier this month, McClure's attorney released audio of her and D'Amico fighting about who was responsible for defrauding well-intentioned donors. 

    The exchanges between the former couple grew increasingly heated throughout the 11-minute recording. At one point, McClure cried as D’Amico screamed that she was a “weak slob” and letting a “junky” get between them.

    Rising Playwright Lindsey Ferrentino was in London when she first started her new piece "The Year to Come," a play that looks at our current climate and asks: "How did we get here?"

    Ferrentino first started writing "The Year to Come" several years ago. At the time, she said in an interview with NBC 7 San Diego, she was seeing many plays of scale: grander pieces with more characters and more complex scenes. 

    That's when she started writing her newest play, "The Year to Come." The piece follows one family's December 2018 New Year's Eve gathering as they ring in the new year. The play travels back in time 18 years, Ferrentino said, weaving through the family's relationships, the political climate and more. 

    Shortly after she wrote it, the Playhouse's former Associate Artistic Director, Jaime Castañeda, sent her an emailing asking if she was working on anything new. 

    When she sent him the first draft, the theater was quick to pick it up. Because the theater was so quick to produce the play, Ferrentino said, it gives her the unique opportunity to have her play staged during the same time the play takes place: December 2018.

    "It's a rare chance to see a play that takes place in December 2018," Ferrentino said. It's uncommon to see plays staged the same time it takes place, she added. 

    The play travels back in time, examining the relationships and political climate over the past several years in the context of our current status quo. 

    Through the play, Ferrentino says, she hopes audiences take a step back and reflect on their own lives.

    Breein Tyree scored 22 points as Mississippi placed five players in double figures Wednesday to defeat San Diego 93-86.

    Terence Davis scored 20 points, with a game-high 9 assists, for the Rebels (4-2). Blake Hinson and KJ Buffen had 15 points apiece while Devontae Shuler added 13. Buffen had a game-high seven rebounds.

    Ole Miss built a 79-63 lead on a Dominik Olejniczak jumper with 4:35 left before a late run by San Diego pulled within 91-86. The Rebels finished 20 of 23 (87 percent) from the free throw line, including 8 of 8 by Tyree, to preserve the win.

    "That was Breein's best overall game and I was glad to see he had six rebounds," Ole Miss coach Kermit Davis said. "This was a big game. I told our guys that in March, that's going to be a real good win."

    Isaiah Wright scored 22 points with six assists to lead the Toreros (5-2), who had a three-game win streak snapped. Isaiah Pineiro scored 21 points, 17 in the first half, and Olin Carter III added 19 points for San Diego, which trailed 39-37 at halftime.

    "Ole Miss played really, really well," first-year San Diego coach Sam Scholl said. "Our guys didn't panic. We showed maturity when we were down. But Ole Miss can get you tired defensively when they shoot well and we paid for that."

    The Rebels shot 33 of 54 (61 percent) from the field, including 7 of 16 (44 percent) from 3-point range. San Diego was 31 of 64 (48 percent), 9 of 23 (39 percent) from deep and 15 of 18 (83 percent) from the line.


    San Diego: The Toreros, with four seniors in the starting lineup, could be a dark horse challenger in the WCC. A December non-conference schedule includes Oregon and Washington State, but San Diego is already 1-1 against Pac-12 teams, defeating Colorado and losing at Washington. The trio of Wright, Carter III and Pineiro will lead the offense in a quest for postseason play.

    "I made sure I told Pineiro and Carter III that I hope you guys make the (NCAA) Tournament because they've got the kind of team that can win in the tournament," Davis said. "I was really impressed with them."

    Ole Miss: The Rebels shot 6 of 8 in a six-minute surge that spanned the first and second half to build what proved to be an insurmountable 52-44 lead. The Rebels did not look fatigued, despite playing four games in less than six days, including two on the road. Ole Miss has hit 36 of 40 (90 percent) from the free throw line over the past two games.

    You can buy the cake, wedding rings and flowers in Costco for a wedding, but now add the ceremony to the list. A couple was married in the Mission Valley Costco Thursday morning. 

    It's a special place for bride, Margot Schein and groom, Julian Parris: the two had their first date at that Costco. 

    "It was three years ago to the day today," said Schein in her wedding dress while holding her bouquet. "We technically met online but I only messaged him because he had Costco in his profile." 

    The couple said their vows in front of an intimate gathering of their friends and family at the checkout cash registers in the store. Dozens of Costco employees watched from behind the family, some filming and some holding back tears. 

    "We have so much in common but Costco is the first thing," the bride laughed. 

    The couple, also fans of Harry Potter, wore their respective house colors. Schein had a scarlet dress with gold flowers (made from the pages of the books) for Gryffindor. The groom had a blue and bronze tie for Ravenclaw. 

    After the ceremony, a one layer white Costco cake was cut and the couple was presented with a decorated champagne bottle fresh off the shelves as a congratulations from employees. The two also received Costco nametags. 

    The couple then browsed the aisles together for the first time as man and wife. 

    "On our first date we got pizza and hot dogs and then spent an hour walking around," said Schein. "It was just such a good date." 

    The groom holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of California, San Diego. The two moved to North Carolina a few years ago so that Schein could pursue her master's degree, where they currently live.
