man: empty nest? new kitchen, new us? woman: who are we? chic, modern, daring dinner-party hosts. that sounds dangerous, maybe we're more the traditional sunday brunch set? i'll expect slippers and a cocktail to be ready when i get home from work. point taken. how about... peaceful, quiet cottage in the country folk? now that's us. spend over 2500 dollars on a new kitchen and save 40 percent on custom countertops until november 28th at ikea. the life improvement store.
at children's hospital. claudine wong has more. >> reporter: they've certainly made plans to help care for the patients that are inside the hospital because of the 800 workers who were no -- nurses who will not be working today. there are about 125 temporary nurses to make um for the 800 who won't be showing up for work. this is a three-day strike over stalled contract talks. the last offer was made by the nurses' union on september 29th. just a couple of days later, the nurses' union informed the hospital they will be striking. the hospital has brought in 125 temporary nurses across the
country. that went to 12-hour -- they've went to 12-hour shifts to help care for the patients. the nurses' union says this is about fighting for what's right. the hospital calls this a misguided strike. >> we feel like it makes no economic sense. they are wasting the public's healthcare dollar on this strike. they are spending a lot of money rather than actually putting it towards the contract. we offered to accept a wage freeze and they've not responded to that offer. >> i find that hard to believe. it's very disappointing. we've been negotiating for five months. we have addressed many issues that were difficult to talk about. this is not a strike. it's a union that's lost touch with the current times. >> reporter: it's unclear if this strike will get anyone on
either side to move to a more common ground. we know this is a 190-bed facility. they expect it to be about 160 beds being pull in the hospital at any given time and you have the emergency room and you also have youth patient. they only have about close to 200 people to cover the shifts while these 800 nurses are on strike. but they say that will actually work out because some of these folks are part time and they do feel confident that the patients will get care. the one thing that both the nurses' union and the hospital agrees on is they don't want the patients affected, at least have them affected as little as hospital. but the families coming in and out of here, back to you. >> thank you. 7:32.
well, this morning, schools are opening today at the scene of a deadly campus shooting. but parents are being assured the campus is safe. this happened last night in the parking lot of armio high school following a soccer match. police say the shooting was not tagged to the game. they say student safety is the top priority. it's unfortunate that the event occurred. we want to assure the parents that this was not student- related in any way. >> now, officials say several young men responded running from the scene and reportedly the victim is a man in his late 20s. police search for those gunman and the investigation continues. oakland police arrested three suspects and they are out there searching for several more following a frightening street robbery. this happened last night at 35th and school street. police say the gunman fired several shots into the air after robbing their victims.
oakland police are investigating a drive-by shooting that left one man in critical condition. it happened around 8:00 last night on 27th avenue in the fruitvale district. police say the victim was not several times. they have no description of the suspect. but they are looking for a car that may have several bullet holes. a san jose fire is in the hospital after being hurt while battling a two-alarm house fire. authorities say a section of the ceiling gave way. the fire started just before 2:30 this morning. it took firefighters more than an hour to put it out. firefighters in antioch are checking for hot spots after an apartment fire this morning. it was reported after 4:00 on
gentry town drive. two apartment buildings had to be evacuated. but no one was hurt. the fire is now under control but several units were destroyed. no word yet on the cause. >> 7:34. a red flag fire warning is in effect for the bay area this morning because of warm, dry air and gusty winds. firefighters are on lay heart in the higher elevations where the fire danger is the most extreme. in livermore for example, there is a 12-member helicopter team on standby, just in case a brush fire breaks out in the hilts. the red flag warning remains in effect until 6:00 tomorrow morning. they won a thrilling series
against the atlanta braves where each game was decided by just one run. giants need to get ready for the fill also. they returned to at&t park on the red eye early this morning. kraig debro joins us live. >> good morning, tori. i guess all of the giants are sleep thing now, seeing as they got in very early this morning. they are play the phillies for the first time ever i think in the series. you just heard dave talk about the weather. it could an contrast. back in philly, it's getting to be winter. they arrived back here at 3:00 after getting off a bus from the airport. the team celebrated last night in atlanta and then got on the plane for a five-hour flight.
none of the players spoke to the media when getting off the bus. the team's president spoke for the players. >> everybody was really happy knowing that ther are still games to win but very, very happy. >> a topper to third, the throw across, in time! the giants have won the series! >> reporter: juan uribe's throw was a little high and hide but not enough to keep the braves from continuing a rally. travis ishikawa put the giants in the series. ross homered to tie the game last night. the first two games of the national league championship series in san francisco are a week from today.
tickets are still on sale for the giants. some say if you don't buy them from the team now, you pay scalpers later. let's be honest. you a businessman and -- >> that's right. >> reporter: so people if they don't buy them now, they will pay more. >> that's what we're here for, to -- for the tickets, to make some kind of money on them. don't know how much the young men will start to tell the -- sell the tickets. but the website says the range in frieses are $220 for a club seat to $50 for a bleacher's seat. the website says only single seats are available. there is a fewer-ticket limit per game. if you are planning to go, you don't want -- you want to buy direct from san francisco giants themselves. people are still getting up here trying to talk to some people out here, and get their
feelings about the win. i will have more at 8:00. back to you. >> thank you. and now the braves' fans will have to face a huge giants flag -- giant flag glue flying -- giant flag flying in the air. that's because of a rivalry bet between the two mayors. and he you can watch the series that starts on saturday. they will be playing in philadelphia. >> sweet. yes. we do have to talk about a commute. we have big problems, don't we, tara? >> we definitely do. 2003 have a hit and run on hayward, there are possible injuries here. see we're looking in to it. also, san francisco, southbound 101, we have a motorcyclist
down third street. we will give you more information on that when it becomes available. if we zoom in here on this area, you can see that there is an accident. 80 westbound near mcbleed avenue. we have a motorcyclist and another vehicle blocking the carpool lane. definitely give yourself some extra time. near is quite a bit of backup along east shore freeway. to the bay bridge toll plaza. the backup has been like this sings after 6:00 this morning. backup extending to the macarthur maze. give yourself an extra 15 minutes. to the south bay, this was an earlier fatal motorcycle accident which had shut down northbound 87 in san jose for several hours here. well, actually a few hours since before 5:00 in the morning. they finally opened all lanes but the backup extended several miles past the scene of the
accident. still, it's pretty congested in this area. give yourself some extra time or use capital expressway instead. here's steve. good morning. well, interesting temperatures statewide. not only locally but statewide. we do have the extensive heat warning. shore, 97. today the wind is more northwest. so we're going around cooler. san rafael checked in at 90. napa 89. sfo, 88 and moffett field 87. all records on monday. you can see the area right there. high pressure is just over us. some of the wind has tailed off at the surface. san francisco our forecasted high today is 90. average is 71. way above the record. so close. 91, 1976, oakland three below. their forecasted high 90.
93, 1996 the record. san carlos went up to 68. vallejo, 54. 28 in tahoe. 43 ukiah. 72 sacramento. 60s all the way down to southern california. the fog is coming up. it's right around big sur. it's very shallow but it's working its way up. it's clear there now. you can see the -- the ridge toppling over. that means 70s and 80s by the coast.
lending. also traders are waiting -- taking kind of a cautious tone before the federal reserve releases details from the september meeting that might give a hint of any future activity by the fed. it is now just three weeks until election day and the two candidates for governor are meeting meeting in their third and final debate tonight. it's a chance for them to win over any uncommitted voters who might be tuning in. pam cook is in the newsroom with a look at ahead. >> reporter: both candidates come in with dogging of campaigns. meg whitman is under fire for how she handled the news of an undocumented hughes keeper.
the poll shows about one-fifth of the registered voters listed as unmotivated or undecide. one topic likely to come up tonight is money. ktvu has learned that meg whitman recently put another 2.5 million into her campaign for governor. she already shattered the governor for personal spending on a campaign. but she's not the only one breaking spending records. independent groups trying to influence the governor's race have spent $21 million. according to the federal fair practice, 20 million has been spent by union groups to support jerry brown and attack meg whitman. tonight's debate is critically important for both candidates to reinsure their base and then more importantly getting voters to the polls. we're out at dominican university in san rafael. would have after farer out there as well. in the next hour, i will bring you comments from the people getting ready for the debate
tonight. let's go back to dave. a big rally is planned tonight at the san francisco unified district. the group calmed united educators of san francisco claim the school district is documenting social security. the protest is at 5:30 tonight at district headquarters. big changes could be coming to university of california campuses. the board of regents is has starred reviewing recommendations from a special commission. they are suggesting that the uc find ways to help students graduate in less than four years. another possibility is raising the cap on a number of non- resident students. the state budget passed last week gives the uc system $250 billion more than last year. however, officials say expenses keep going up. which means layoff and student
fee increases may be necessary for the next school year even as more -- even as more financial aid is being found for low-income students. >> the main aingst is it hurts middle class family, umer middle-class families more than poor families, ironic as that teams. but everyone is gonna have to sacrifice. the recents could decide whether to raise student fees for the fall of 2011.
a lot of the time i would contemplate suicide because -- no one accepted me. >> in general kids feel very stressed out because there's so much pressure to do well especially in communities as marin and wealthier community. it's just tough. >> the teenagers gathered in the community meeting, who they say they had contemplated suicide. ten minute before 8:00. some of the 33 chill yen miners could be above ground as early as tonight. rescuers have finished reinforcing a shaft and a chamber was successfully lowered down in several test ones. each miner will wear suit, socks and gatherments donated
by -- garments donated by nasa. after they are brought up, they will be flown to hospitals for checks. i understand they are kind of arguing about who is gonna be has. partly because they want to support them but the last one out will break the record for being the last one out. a world-faced -- based san francisco company does an about- face.
man: empty nest? new kitchen, new us? woman: who are we? chic, modern, daring dinner-party hosts. that sounds dangerous, maybe we're more the traditional sunday brunch set? i'll expect slippers and a cocktail to be ready when i get home from work. point taken. how about... peaceful, quiet cottage in the country folk? now that's us. spend over 2500 dollars on a new kitchen and save 40 percent on custom countertops until november 28th at ikea. the life improvement store.
