claudine wong is in sacramento this morning. she joins us to talk about jerry brown's past and the challenges he faces starting today. >> reporter: good morning, pam. this is the memorial place behind. the highway patrol is starting to set up cones around the building this morning. they are setting up cones around the block and this is the block that jerry brown has been down before. a couple of times. back in 1975 and 1979 jerry brown lead the state as governor. he was low key then and it has been jerry brown's thing. we don't expect that to change. low key and low budget is the order of the day this day. he will be sworn in at at auditorium. he will be snacking on hot dogs and chips. political experts say today's speech while symbolic may not be as important as the speech many californians will be watching in the comes days.
>> i think all eyes will be focused on him but more so on the actual inauguration that has a lot of symbolism. i think january 10th or whenever he delivers his state of the state address will be much more of a focus on what he is planning on doing to address the problems facing the state. >> reporter: brown has a lot on his plate when he makes the state of the state speech. colorado facing double digit unemployment and projected deficit in 2012. clearly so much more needs to be done. and we will have more on what we expect him to say today coming up in our next hour. thank you. we will continue to check in with her throughout the morning and if you want to watch the inauguration ktvu will stream it live on ktvu.com. you can also find a history of

southbound. i think a lot of people have made resolutions. they will get to work early. this is northbound 101 getting up to the 880 interchange. that traffic is moving along very nicely. >> at least today they will. >> they will. one low moves south and moved into southern california and then said i'm going to exit stage right and moves into the four corners. the next low coming down the coast will keep going down the coast. one system moves out and high pressure will build in. we are look for a dry pattern for the next three to five days. it may be longer. patchy fog. some of that is very, very thick. we will have clouds and some sun. as the week progresses we will have more fog. mostly sunny and warmer weather will start to hug the coast.

for his involvement in the 2008 stabbing death of lewis santos in san diego. the governor reduced that prison sentence to seven years yesterday. he says the sentence was excessive because nunez codefendant confessed to stabbing santos. esteban confessed to stabbing esteban. they only learned about the decision from reporters. he says this is dirty politics. i guess if you're the son of somebody important you can kill someone and get all sorts of breaks. governor schwarzenegger also reduced the sentence of a woman who was 16 years old killed her former pimp. sarah who is 32 years old was given the sentence of life without the possibility of

before. two inaugurations back in 1975 and 1979. jerry brown served as california's governor 28 years ago. things have changed since he left that office in 1983. california's population has grown. has highway to deal with political terms. he is low key which that is one thing people says has not changed. low key and low budget will be the order of the day this day. as we said everything is within walking distance. the food of chase will be hot dogs and chips. those are state owned billings so they don't need to be rented out. all this in line to what jerry brown has done. >> i think his symbolism is pretty clear. california is in a difficult situation and you elected me to fix this problem and i'm not up here to have a big party. there is no time for that and there is no money for that.
>> reporter: and really there is not a lot of money for anything right now and that may be his biggest challenge. he has been known in the past for having surpluses and mostly on time budgets. again that was back in '75 and '79. things have changed. it's a much different california now. we will talk about some of the challenges he is facing coming up on mornings on 2 and that list is long. live here in sacramento claudine wong. all right claudine outgoing governor schwarzenegger says he plans to be at the inauguration ceremony. when he leaves office schwarzenegger says he will hit the speech line and will write an autobiography. schwarzenegger became the governor afterth reelection in 2003 and he was reelected in 2006. if you want to watch the
inauguration this morning ktvu plans to stream it to you live. you can find a history of jerry brown's last stint in governor under the right now system. police in nevada are looking for suspects in an overnight shooting outside a safeway store. it's still an active crime scene right now. we want to go to kraig debro who is there with more on the story. >> reporter: yeah good morning. th crime scene investigators have been out here -- the crime scene investigators have been out here since it has opened. i just spoke to an employee a person that works here at the safeway. she has two roommates that work here that were here last night. they were in the parking lot when this all happened and they heard one of the shooters say get out of the car get out of the car. we have to look into that further. that is new information about what happened here. now obviously bigger cities you would have crime scene technicians that are dedicated to that here in nevada.
not only police officers are technicians. the big question what is the motive here. why did people open up on two victims. the two victims have not been identified. but they were riding in that white corolla before they were shot. it happened in the parking lot of the safeway around 12:10 last night. we were not aloud to see a copy of a surveillance tape what happened here. i did see that tape. the tape shows another vehicle following the white toyota corolla into the parking lot before two men or at least one person got out of the car and opened fire. people that i talked to this morning they say this is very surprising for many of the locals. >> i was just going to get gas. i just noticed nevada is not like this. >> it's pretty alarming. i live around the corner. >> reporter: came the safe way a lot? >> yeah. i come here for coffee before work.
it's pretty upsetting. >> reporter: police in nevada are completing their forensic mapping of the scene. i've tried to speak to the officers on the scene. they have not been able to speak to me because of their -- they are still busy right now. i couldn't see what happened to the second vehicle in that shooting. the results are clear. the two men one described as a 23-year-old hispanic male. suffered one gunshot wound. the officers on the scene do not know which hospital. we had to call the police in downtown to find out that and if they know information about the second vehicle involved here. reporting live in nevada kraig debro ktvu channel 2 news. in san francisco a man has been arrested and accused in the stabbing death. the victim a 54-year-old man was rushed to the hospital but later died because of his injuries. the unsatisfied suspect a man in his 40s is in custody.
so far no word on what lead up to that incident. in santa cruz a suspected gang member is behind bars after allegedly pulling a gun on a police officer. he is 18-year-old ryan lanther. it's after a homeowner alerted police saying around his home. a chase insued when police caught up to him. police say he pulled a gun. he managed to -- they managed to wrestle the weapon away from him. an investigation continues right now into the deaths of a man and a woman who's bodies were found inside a home in saratoga. a realtive called police inside a welfare check. that's when police found the bodies of the man and woman inside this house. their names and how they died that hasn't been released yet. santa clara county say there is
no threat. cable car will be out of service for six months. now the california street line rises out the financial district and climbs past china town and rolls past the hotels on knob hill. this will be the biggest disruption in cable car service since 1980s. that's when all three lines were closed. >> let's go back to sal. you were talking about a little fog in placings. how are the roads? >> the roads are okay. i want to add the shuttle bus they will use for that cable car will only for $2. let's go out and take a look at the commute on westbound bay bridge. it is backed up to the middleover that parking -- not even the middle. that parking lot is going away. they will make a new parking lot there. let's say it's backed up for a five minute delay.
also this mornings commute is looking good if you are driving on northbound 101. and this mornings commute an northbound 101 in san jose looks very nice driving up the peninsula. there it goes. i hit the mouse a certain way and then that pops up. let's go to steve. thank you, sal. a very good morning on this monday. fog is going to be the big story. not only today but more so as we go through midweek and the end of next week. but sunshine should rule out here and start to warm up coastal locations over the next couple of days as the pattern shows the dry weather. the next low is going down the coast. fog though especially coming back in the valley we are overdue for a pattern. patchy fog. sun, clouds and more sunshine tomorrow. it does look dry. this week looks dry.

the commission. but the idea is drawing opposition from groups who say the way people use parks changes over time. so standards need to be flexible. if you are shopping for 100- watt lightbulbs you may have a hard time finding what you are looking for. the replacements are called energy saving hallowallens. the new bulbs cost the same but use less energy. let's go back to sal and see what is happening around the toll plaza. >> we have been watching it. there have have been more cars but not busy enough. downtown san francisco that is a little busier but so far not stop and go. let's go back to the desk. coming up next on mornings on 2 a supermarket parking lot
