technology, a lot of good, a lot of good. but as we grow, we lose. we lose families, neighborhoods, cities to companies. >> reporter: east palo alto is no different than many other bay area cities with bidding wars on properties and homes selling at above asking price. investors also swooped in during the housing bust when east palo alto saw more than its share of foreclosures. >> the council has really indicated that they wanted a mixed income community. >> reporter: the east palo alto planning manager says the city is doing everything it can to prevent market forces from driving out residents but even affordable housing providers have big challenges. >> they are finding that they are competing with very high net worth individuals or partners that make the provisioning of affordability particularly difficulty in this
area. >> reporter: spencer has seen the rent on her two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment jump from $865 a month to $1,300 a month in just the past few years. >> everything goes up. but unfortunately, salaries don't follow everything else. >> reporter: now, east palo alto does have a rent control ordinance and recently did something unique deciding to reduce the requirements for lot sizes for second units on the same property so if you want to build, say, a guest house or second house on the property there needs to be less land for that. the goal is to increase the housing stock to keep the prices down to try to accommodate all different income stratas here as the tech industry drives real estate through the roof. back to you. >> mark, you know, the story you mentioned affordable housing. how is that specifically defined? >> reporter: that's defined based on the median income in the county and in san mateo county that median income is
over 1$00,000. so 80% of that puts you at $84,000 for a family of 4. that's the target range they are looking at with some of these housing developments about $84,000 for a family. that's a high number especially when you compare what it would be like elsewhere in the country. big numbers here. >> absolutely. thank you. the price for rent is rising all over the bay area. we sent ryan takeo out to scout the best deals. surprisingly, he found some affordable rentals. >> reporter: before i tell you where this condo is, i'll tell you its positives. three beds, two baths, 1,000 square feet and the price to rent is $1,395 a month. that's a good deal. >> pretty good deal. it's getting more and more difficult to find properties for $1,395. >> reporter: john is a property manager and has been in the business four decades. >> what's reasonable a couple of years ago is probably ten to twenty percent higher now and
whether that's reasonable or not i don't know but the rents are just no end in sight. >> reporter: san francisco led the nation with a 7-plus percent rent raise after the 2nd quarter. oakland and san jose were also in the top five nationally. in the bay area it's tough to achieve what experts suggest, a family of four living comfortably and using one quarter of their budget could only spend less than $1,700 on housing. on top of that is how quick the rentals go. he knows about that personally. his own son who is studying to be a real estate broker himself cannot get an apartment in san francisco. they are going too quickly. >> it's rare. you will find something on craigslist and we'll send an application right as we see it and we'll be in competition with 10 other applications. >> reporter: it's not just in the city. this condo in concord was rented in just three days. >> sometimes they don't even last 12 hours, sometimes a couple of days. but for the most part, stuff is going right away. >> reporter: but the first one we showed you is still on the market. 42 miles from san francisco, in
pittsburg. ryan takeo, kpix 5. >> rental agents say besides pittsburg and antioch, the hayward area is a good bet for affordable housing, as well. this just in. negotiations between bart and its unions have apparently been put off for more than a week. union negotiators now say the talks are over for the next 10 days. that announcement comes after a day when both sides were in the same building but apparently not the same room. bart's chief negotiator is laying part of the blame at her counterpart's feet. >> for the chief negotiator for the district to be gone for 10 days of the 15 days that the parties have available before the deadline is a serious, serious problem. >> earlier today, a bart spokesman said his agency is ready to negotiate a fair contract and all sides signed off on a five-day absence by bart chief negotiator 's absent ahead of time. tests at millbrae high
school are being tossed out due to so-called seating irregularities. the college board and educational testing service says mills high school didn't follow procedure when giving the exams in may. and that may have given some students an unfair advantage. the school wants the school board to reinstate the test scores. the chinese consulate is demanding answers after the release of coroner's report on one of the victims of asiana flight 214. 16-year-old ye meng yuan is one of three passengers killed in the crash at sfo. we're now learning she survived the impact. kpix 5's linda yee on the devastating news that per parents received about her death. >> reporter: the parents of the crash victim attended a tearful memorial for their daughter. now their tragedy is compounded with news of the coroner's findings. she survived the crash but was killed when a fire rescue rig hit her. >> cause of death of the asiana flight 214 passenger ye meng
yuan is listed as multiple blunt injuries that are consistent with being run over by a motor vehicle. those injuries she received, she was alive at the time. >> reporter: it was the rescue crew's worst fear since they discovered her body on the tarmac near the wreckage of the plane. >> this is very difficult news for us. we're heartbroken. we are in the business of saving lives. everyone is very emotional from this incident and continues to --and getting the news yesterday has made it difficult even more difficult. >> reporter: it's still not known how she ended up on the tarmac by the wing of the plane. san francisco police are reconstructing a scene in their ongoing investigation. >> she was not standing up. she was on the ground when our rig made contact with her, a rig or possibly two. that hasn't been determined either. >> reporter: the chief does not expect disciplinary action against the driver or drivers of the rescue rigs.
she calls it a tragic accident. but in a statement from the chinese consulate in san francisco, chinese officials are urging investigators to deal properly with the aftermath of ye meng yuan's death and investigate and affix responsibility for the tragic accident. the chief says she has reached out to the family. >> to not only express our condolences and apologies but to also offer, if they're willing and interested, in sitting down with them so we can have a face-to-face meeting. that has not taken place. >> reporter: the chinese consulate here in san francisco has been the center where a lot of the victims and families have come for support and needs including the parents of ye meng yuan. allen? >> linda, they have -- obviously there's one driver who feels horribly responsible if they may not even know they did it and then the chinese
consulate wants justice. how do they balance that? will there be criminal charges? >> reporter: well, the chief was asked that question today. she says i am not a legal expert. but keep in mine that there is still a san francisco police department investigation. they are trying to set up -- restructure this whole thing, see what happened. no one is saying right now there's going to be any legal action or at least criminal action. and it's hard to imagine because these people -- this was an accident. these people are out there, it was chaotic that day. so it's anybody's guess right now. i think it won't happen. >> it would have been more than one truck, too. thank you, linda yee. believe it or not, asiana airlines did not retire that number -- flight number 214 so another asiana flight number 214 had to make a go-around at sfo this afternoon. it's the same maneuver pilots did try to make two weeks ago seconds before flight 214 crashed. not clear why this latest

vandals involved in previous protests have been charge. that's pretty gutsy. the guy who took it, i mean, i don't know what he is thinking. >> a stolen bay area transit bus driven all the way to the central valley. how the driver pulled it off and how police finally stopped him. >> after a year-long appear sense how the return of a popular event going on right now is music to the ears of bay area businesses. >> sunshine and temperatures running above normal. that's your friday. it will continue for a little bit longer. but we're taking away the sunshine and the warmer-than-normal weather. find out when coming up. >> why financial experts say it's in your own best interests to stop spoiling your kids and grandkids. ,,,,,, announcer: right now at sleep train,

track it down. the driver led officers on a 20- minute chase. they stopped the bus by using spike strips to flatten the tires. officers arrested a san francisco man, 29-year-old justin moss. ac transit officials say this was a standby bus parked at the transbay terminal. >> i have been here eight years and i can't recall that ever happening at least in that period of time. >> reporter: and muni officials say they have never had their buses stolen. the bus drivers say they are not surprised. >> being that there's not very much security as far as locking the bus, we don't have keys to the bus. >> reporter: ac transit doesn't think the suspect is a former driver for them. but they think he has some training. >> it's not quite like operating an airplane. but there are some procedure things you have to go through. >> i feel it was somebody who had previous knowledge with how to operate a commercial vehicle because you don't just get into one of these large buses and start driving around. >> reporter: the bus is back in the bay area. the suspect is locked up at the san joaquin county jail and is facing several felony charges. and allen, investigators still
don't know why he stole that bus. >> da, ac transit are they going to start locking these things up or changes? >> reporter: no because they said it doesn't happen often. so they don't have plans to revisit security. >> let's hope it doesn't happen more often. da lin, thank you. a popular san jose event is back for one night only. music in the park has returned after a one-year hiatus. len ramirez is live in downtown san jose with what's different about tonight's concert. len. >> reporter: well, music in the park is definitely back here in downtown san jose. you can hear the music now. everybody is having a good time. it's sounding good. but there are some big changes. the biggest one is that no one gets in for free anymore. >> reporter: music in the park is making a comeback on its 25th anniversary. it's a special one-time only concert featuring a latin rock band.

the smoke from the wildfires. the moon will be out for many of you. look at the great clear sky we have from our dublin cam looking back toward mount diablo. 90s inland today and we'll do that again tomorrow. as is often the case with all the microclimates it's not sunny everywhere. the golden gate is spot number one when it comes to cloud cover because that's the biggest opening for that marine layer to work its way inland. it's also got a really nice bridge. concord 89, livermore 88, san francisco with marine layer inland 67 the high but down to 61 now. right in between we have san jose and santa rosa at a very comfortable 75 degrees. the traffic on i-80 is thick right now. everybody is heading to tahoe enjoying summertime. watch out for a few late day thunderstorms tomorrow. sunshine to start on sunday but a better chance of late day storms as people head back toward the bay area. upper 80s for highs. so warm and humid in lake tahoe. maybe you're heading to wine country. we have so many options around here. sunny warm tomorrow for sonoma. high of 86. mainly sunny skies, a little cloudier cooler on sunday with
the high of 82. so there's a couple of things we just talked about between saturday and sunday for sonoma. cooler and cloudier. both will happen for all of us. both will find their origins in arizona. a lot of clouds and tropical moisture. its their monsoon season. some of that moisture will move into southern california and southern nevada tomorrow but our weather will stay the same. hot inland with highs in the 90s and near the bay comfortable in the mid-70s with morning clouds and afternoon sunshine. sunday the onshore flow increases and this low pressure area will act like a magnet and draw up some of that tropical moisture. i do not expect any rainfall but i expect that it's going to be cloudy on monday and tuesday dragging down temperatures, as well. so we'll have a cooling trend after tomorrow. we are going to be cloudy for the top of next week, too. so the cooldown starts monday, cloudy monday and tuesday. then rainfall, zero. when i say zero, no rain in
july likely. livermore tomorrow 94. san jose average which is nice mid-80s. milpitas 81. union city 76. san mateo 74 with afternoon sunshine. concord will hit 91. you did 92 today. fairfield 95. pleasant hill 92. san rafael 82 degrees. petaluma 83. san francisco another nice day 67 with afternoon sunshine. ukaih triple digits today you will do triple digits again tomorrow. then we start cooling down on sunday. sunny and cooler. monday and tuesday cloudier with zero rainfall and toward the middle of next week, that sunshine is back and every day of the next seven will be close to normal. and that's a happy place to be this time of year. which golfers are happy after the british open today? we have sports coming up next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
i don't know what i was thinking when i picked my pick for the british open. i should have talked to you first. >> i know. i'm going to tell you what happened once we get into the anchor picks. but things were a little firmer and faster today which made it pour difficult. tiger woods' major drought is nothing compared to that of miguel angel jimenez but the 49- year-old is in position to finally breakthrough and win his first-ever major title this weekend. in case you missed it, tiger woods teed off at 1:45 this
morning. he had three birdies and three bogies for tiger. on the tenth he drains foreputt to save par. tiger shoots an even 71. he is just one shot off the lead after a 69 yesterday. phil mickelson four putts on 16 for a double bogey. he finished his day at one-over and four shots back. rory mcilroy can't get out of the bunker or 16. we have all been there. rory shoots a 75 and is 12-over for the tournament. >> round one leader zach johnson fell off the pace with a 75 and is now tied for 6th. but everyone is chasing jimenez who has 71 at 3-under. he takes a one-stroke lead into the weekend. at 49 years old, jimenez is looking to become golf's oldest major champion. four are within a stroke including tiger woods. let's check in on our experts. paul is looking strong with lee westwood.
tied for second. the same can't be said for liz who took rory mcilroy who didn't even make the cut at 12-over. allen and phil mickelson are still in contention. it could have been -- >> lefty. >> right here. >> bad influence. >> highest points win, right? >> that's right. >> what game is that? a little celebrity golf in tahoe. a beautiful day on the south shore. he knows something about clutch shooting and nails this one on his way to putt. ray romano, hm, not as clutch from downtown. flicking one off the iron. steph curry can do no wrong. he nails the putt for a different kind of three. he is in fourth place in the tournament with 22 points. the leader is former redskins quarterback mark [ indiscernible ] when the giants host the first place diamondbacks tonight they will begin the second half of the season eight game under .500 but with a
little momentum thanks to timmy. >> the split -- high in the air, and catchable! blanco pitches a no hitter for tim lincecum. >> saturday in san diego lincecum became the 7th pitcher in san francisco giants history to throw a no-hitter despite going 5-9 with a 4.26 e.r.a. in the first half. he expects a second half turnaround. >> i had my time to, you know, enjoy it and celebrate it with my family and friends. so the time is passed and it's time to move on. you know, get ready for my next start. >> it took him 148 pitches to get it done. >> i'm just glad i don't see a cast on his arm. [ laughter ] >> he said sunday he felt great because i was kidding with him about maybe helping out and just give us one inning. he says, yeah i can do it. >> right field, and he dives, he's got it. >> i wish i could describe
coolness in a merit valley but it's not possible. it was extremely special. one of the most amazing things i have been a part of. he was absolutely phenomenal. i mean, those moments you can't replace them. you know, anyone who was watching the game, anyone who was there can tell you how exciting it is like every, single pitch every, single out is a lot of special moments in there and it was fun. the 49ers have added another veteran cornerback to the roster. today they traded a conditional pick for former riordan star eric wright who started ten games for tampa bay last season recording 39 tackles, one interception and a fumble recovery. wright was arrested last week in los angeles on a dui charge. >> oh, boy. >> think maybe you were thinking of putt-putt. >> maybe. or the higher the score the better. captions by: caption colorado email@example.com aren't you sweet!
