tv KTVU Mornings on 2 at 7am FOX May 3, 2018 7:00am-9:00am PDT
for young entrepreneurs. i know you remember the store manager there at the starbucks had the two men arrested even though they were there for a legitimate business meeting. both were released. no charges were filed. millions of dollars set aside for san francisco teachers. the ballot proposition that would create animas i have influx of money and where the money would come from. the fremont school board makes a decision about sex ed curriculum for elementary school students. what they decided after a nearly 10-hour-long meeting. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> marching ever closer to the weekend. it is thursday morning, may 3rd. thanks for joining us. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. normally you bring the sunshine with you. >> i tried today. >> i didn't find any out there. >> no. >> steve paulson is here to talk about our weather. >> i can't find any.
good morning, gasia. >> thank you, steve. same to you. >> every reporting station says cloudy to mostly cloudy. it is a cool, cool pattern we're in right now. i will probably butcher your name. pretika. good morning. missing my hot chocolate. looking towards the bay bridge from alameda. there's a lot of gray there. our good friend, mr. donnie downer, marty batista. so everybody -- almost everybody is mentioning the fog. there is plenty to go around. we have a rather robust fresh on shore wind. been up to about 30, 36 miles per hour out of travis. even the napa airport is due west at 12. 50s on the temps. a lot of 40s and 50s. and a deep fog bank going no time soon except for retreating back to the coast. 60s and mainly low 70s inland.
unless you're really far away from the coast. something new? >> no. we're watching things, steve. 680, the crash we had at sunol boulevard is clear but it did its damage on 680. we will start on the freeway there out of the dublin interchange. the speeds are slow driving southbound on 680. this might catch your attention as you drive. 11 miles per hour. traffic is slow. some people are on highway 84 trying to get out of livermore. at the very least the accident has cleared. we're hoping to see improvement here. on the nimitz freeway, traffic will be slow in hayward and fremont heading down to union city. you can see traffic on highway 4 is also slow this morning. again, comparing it to what we had yesterday in the region, a lot of people will say at least this is normal. bay bridge is backed up for 15
to 20 minutes. northbound 101 slow just north of the silver avenue exit to cesar chavez. san mateo bridge looks okay heading off to the highrise. 7:03. let's go back to the desk. >> it was a marathon meeting for the fremont school board. it didn't end until 2:30 this morning. >> whether to approve a sex education program for students in the 4th grade through the 9th grade. allie rasmus is at the school district office. so explain what happened out there. >> reporter: well, the fremont school board early this morning voted not to approve the sex ed curriculum for 4th to 6th graders after parents objected to the material in the curriculum. they said it was not age appropriate and too graphic. for six hours of public comment and discussion among the school board members, a vote finally took place at 2:30 this morning.
>> we have a fail to vote. >> reporter: that failed vote of course being the decision not to adopt that sex ed curriculum for 4th through 6th graders. the majority of parents in the room last night spoke out against it. some were concerned about the images, videos and specific topics in the curriculum material. at one point the board thought about making modifications to the specific materials. and then at 2:00 in the morning, they ultimately decided it was a take it or leave it type of proposition and they decided to not approve that curriculum. they approved the curriculum for 7th and 9th graders. now, what this means is that for the next year, it appears that 4th through 6th graders
in public schools in fremont won't have any sex education, any curriculum, which is what parents didn't want. they wanted sex ed, just not the particular curriculum that the district was trying to adopt. we're waiting to speak with someone from the school district later this morning to get more information what this means for students going forward. back to you. >> thank you, allie rasmus in fremont. the question of the day is this: when should students learn about sexual orientation and sexual assault and gender? vote on twitter and ktvu.com. here is a quick look at the results so far. 41% say teach it in grades 4 through 6. 47% say -- say 7th grade through the 9th grade. 12% percent say later than the
9th grade. the attorney for the accused serial killer and rapist joseph deangelo is back in the courtroom appealing to the judge. he wants to stop prosecutors from collecting more of his dna. the public defender filed a motion in sacramento county to try to stop the d.a. from taking photos of deangelo's body and collecting his fingerprints and dna. the district attorney argued that a warrant for the evidence has already been approved. investigators believe deangelo is the golden state killer, responsible for at least 12 murders and 50 rapes in our state in the '70s and '80s. dna may help investigators with another infamous unsolved case, that of the zodiac killer. two envelopes were sent by the zodiac killer. they hope to get saliva from
the envelopes and stamps and track them down by using dna data base as used in the golden state killer. he claimed responsibility for many more murders in letters often signed with the symbol a cross over a circle. the time is 7:07. the ntsb released new details and surveillance video of a go- around at sfo last july involving an air canada jet. now, take a look. that bright dot inside of the yellow circle, that's the air canada jet. it almost landed on a taxi way. four planes were on that taxi way waiting to take off. only one traffic controller was in the tower at the time. well, now the new rules require two controllers during busy late nights. east bay congressman mark says the ntsb and the f.a.a. do a good job when it comes to
passenger safety but they could do better. >> just because it was a near miss and nobody lost life, we shouldn't be looking at what happened and making sure that it doesn't happen again. as the video from ntsb shows the air canada flight at sfo demonstrates how close we came to a real tragedy. >> the f.a.a. released a separate report on four other incidents at sfo that have happened in the last year and a half. it blamed pilot error for two of the incidents and error on an air traffic controller for the third. the fourth was called an isolated occurrence. the f.a.a. will have an action plan in the next few weeks. governor brown will highlight the importance of trade between california and china. he is a key note speaker at the business summit in beverly hills. the governor visited china last year with a group of state business leaders. today's conference is seen more of a networking event with
asian companies with interest in doing business in california. the santa clara water district postponed a decision last night whether to support the governor's delta tunnels project. the district is considering whether to allocate $650 million for building the twin tunnels that would transport water from the delta down to southern california. water districts in southern california already committed $11 billion for the project. the santa clara valley water district is expected to take up this matter again next tuesday. san francisco voters will soon decide on a tax to pay for teachers salaries and other education needs. it is called proposition g on the june ballot. it would increase salaries 7% annual for 12 years and fund classroom and school technology at ten underserved schools. the proposition is expected to generate $50 million per year through a $298 parcel tax.
but some say it would increase the price of owning property and houses in san francisco. still ahead, the e. coli outbreak linked to lettuce has turned can deadly. how bay area growers and restaurants are being affected by the outbreak. >> i'm giving you a fact now that you don't know. a surprising turn in the stormy daniels saga. it turns out president trump reimbursed his lawyer for so- called hush money. how the president is responding this morning on twitter. good morning. the bay area bridges look pretty decent this morning. traffic is moving on the san mateo bridge on the way to the peninsula. there's your order. and a napkin to go with it.
i have the new fresh beef quarter pounders for you guys. and also, here are your napkins. (laughing) it's so juicy, you're going to need it. mcdonald's proudly introduces the new fresh beef quarter pounder burgers. they're cooked right when you order on our flat iron grill. so they're hot, full of flavor, and fantastically juicy. mcdonald's new 100% fresh beef quarter pounder burgers. let's just say you'll need a bigger napkin. ( ♪ )
president reimbursed his personal lawyer michael cohen for the $130,000 paid to adult movie star stormy daniels just before the 2016 presidential election. this morning, president trump is tweeting about this, saying, mr. cohen received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign. and that money from the campaign played no role in this transaction. it is a point that rudy giuliani made repeatedly as well. >> that money was not campaign money. sorry i'm giving you a fact now that you don't know. it is not campaign money. no campaign finance violation. so -- >> they funnelled it through a law firm. >> through a law firm and the president repaid it. >> athat admission is surprising because the president has said more than once he didn't even know about the payment to daniels. stormy daniels claims she had an affair with the president back in 2006 and she was paid to keep quiet about e alleged
affair during the 2016 election. the white house hadenied the affair ever happened. there are reports this morning suggesting north korea will release three american prisoners just ahead of a meeting between north korean leader kim jong-un and president trump. the three men were accused of committing hostile acts against the country's government. reportedly the prisoners were transferred from a labor camp to a hospital this morning. u.s. officials have said releasing the prisoners would be a sign of good faith. president trump tweeted that we should stay tuned about any possible releases. republican house members have nominated president trump to receive the nobel peace prize. 18 members of congress sent a letter to the nobel committee claiming the president's quote, peace through strength approach is working. the group says the president de serves to be recognized for his work towards peace on the korean peninsula. if the nomination is accepted, it then goes through a review process by the nobel prize committee. the time is 7:14. let's go back to sal. everybody behaving for you, sal?
>> well, they are. >> okay. >> we noticed a couple of things here. but for the most part, today's commute is not the commute it was yesterday, which is to say a huge regional wide effect. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. you can see traffic is backed up. if you're using the carpool lane, it shouldn't be a bad commute for you. here is a look at the east bay commute getting into san francisco. we had an earlier stalled vehicle at the ups building. we just watched it cleared away. you can see it is a little slow on southbound 101 at the 80 split. it has been gone for a bit. westbound 92 driving out towards the highrise looks okay. if you're driving to the south bay, the south bay is beginning to fill in. again, compared to what we had the last few days on highway 17, this commute is a breeze. northbound 101, 280 and 85. and i do want to mention that 680 is still slow getting out of the dublin area because of an earlier accident that was right there. that's been gone now for 15 to
20 minutes. you can allow for that to kind of unwind before you hit the road. that would probably help out. 7:15. let's go back to steve. >> thank you, sir. >> you're welcome. >> there's a big deep fog bank out there. and the water temps are very cold. san jose even with overcast. if you enjoyed yesterday, you will like today. unless you're over by the coast where it is cold out there. global cooling. i survived the ice age of the '70s so i'm prepared. when you get the fog bank and water temps are about 51, and a west wind, it can be cold on the coast and san francisco and the bay. warmer tomorrow. still pretty nice on saturday. then cooler again on sunday. if your job takes you outside, i see brief warmups. the middle of the month looks unseasonably cool. i typed to buy into it. that has been the pattern for spring.
50 to 53 degrees. and they haven't budged all morning on the temps. almost every location by 5:00 a.m. said overcast. what is average 64/50. one year ago. record highs. 88 in san francisco. oakland airport was 90. and san jose was 91. just last year at this time. we tend to forget. i forget last week. don't you? because low cloud deck is in place. we turned the page from april and into may and went into fog ust. when you get a delta breeze like this, they're done. no way to warm up over the 70s. all locations with the fog bank up and down the coast. because the water temps are in the 50s down to santa barbara and santa monica, it doesn't take much to get the fog bank. moisture plume coming in from the hawaiian islands. a little low will break through the ridge. it won't be that strong on friday. we will get a little warmup
inland on friday. fog should burn off a little sooner. that looks to be the warmest week by far. no we're not expecting any rain. the mere fact that the models are showing rain from mount shasta and ukiah on north tells me that there is a series of weak systems coming in. if that happens this came of year, that equals cooler and more fog. i would buy into that. 50s and 60s coast and bay. could be tough for some if you're stuck in the fog. some low 70s for most inland. temperatures slightly below average. they will bump up a little bit tomorrow, gasia. >> thank you, steve. activists form a human shield where a bicyclist was hit and killed two years ago. what they want from the city to protect cyclists. new regulations for automakers. the safety feature that is required on all new cars sold here in the u.s.
>> the state of hawaii is set to ban certain sunscreens in hopes of protecting coral reeves. it would ban the sale of sunscreens containing the chemical by the year 2021. that substance can be toxic to coral which is a vital part of the ecosystem of the ocean. tesla getting a lot of attention on wall street. elon musk made a big announcement in an earnings call that many analysts are calling bizarre. >> let's learn more by bringing
pam cook back to the studios for dollars and sense. >> elon musk avoided a lot of questions about the capital for the company and the model 3. he said the questions were stupid and boring. analysts are saying it is one of the weirdest earnings call they have ever seen. he didn't give a lot of answers. when the opening bell rang this morning, tesla's stock dropped more than $17 a share. nearly 7%. disappointing earnings report there. a live look at the stock market. despite some other really good earnings out there this morning, the numbers are all down. for the most part. here is a live look at the dow jones.. down more than 250 points. the s&p 500 down almost a full percent. the nasdaq as well at 7042 right now. well, first it was amazon. now tesla. there is expected to be a bidding war between cities and states vying to get a new tesla
plant. during the call yesterday, elon musk did say that he expects to announce a location of a new suv factory by the end of the year. the proposed factory would not only produce the model y but likely include a battery plant. musk says the factory in fremont is at maximum production and the company needs a new plant to keep up with demand. well, starting this week, all new cars sold in the u.s. must have backup cameras as a standard feature. that rule was adopted back in 2014 but car companies had a few years to comply. the government says each year more than 200 people are killed. 15,000 are injured by drivers backing up who didn't see them. well, amazon now has its own label of dog food. it is called wag. it is meant to compete against the retail stores. right now just a few varieties of high-end dog food that contain meat and no grains. it is a big business. u.s. consumers expected to spend nearly $30 billion a year on pet food purchases according
to the american pet products association. so not a surprise. amazon getting in on that. amazon also launching a monthly subscription service for children called prime book box. for $23 a month, subscribers will receive a box of books appropriate for the child's age. the service can also ship books up to three times per month. books will be chosen by amazon book editors ranging from classic stories to hidden gems. >> gasia. >> if you don't have time to get to the library or store. >> right. we made going to the library sort of a -- every wednesday after school. >> uh-huh. >> it is nice they're at point that we can introduce the book that's we head as children to them. we're all about the little house series right now. >> i love it. >> whatever gets kids to read more. >> i love the library. it is a great place to take the kids. >> oh, those days are the best, pam. >> thank you. >> the time is 7:24. how about a new way to get to
san francisco international airport. it will help link millions in the south bay to sfo. >> reporter: plus, an alameda county judge makes a key ruling about the massive civil lawsuit being filed in connection with the deadly ghost ship warehouse fire in oakland. we will tell you why this ruling could reportedly leave the city of oakland liable for the deaths of those 36 people. interstate 680 is a little rough in dublin. but just a little bit farther down on the sunol grade, it looks good. it does improve. we will tell you more straight ahead. low clouds and fog. and you saw the breeze at the sunol grade. it will be a cooler than average day. we will look ago the temps coming up.
to keep our community safe. before you do any project big or small, pg&e will come out and mark your gas and electric lines so you don't hit them when you dig. call 811 before you dig, and make sure that you and your neighbors are safe. >> the time is 7:28. happening now, really about to happen, we're giving you a live look at three falcon chicks in a nest box high up on a ledge at city hall. we expect to see a bird biology come and band the chicks. it doesn't hurt. it puts a tracker around their legs and they track the birds as they grow and start to fly. it is part of preserving nature, observing nature from a safe distance. i'm in awe of the men and women who scale these tall buildings
to do this detailed work. i love it when mom and dad get protective over the chicks as mom and dad do. >> i love seeing those live shots too. great job at san jose city hall. >> it is a busy, busy thursday morning. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. it is a cloudy morning for most of us in the bay area. steve paulson has been talking about that. >> i would like to know the range, how far they go. >> i wish i had a tracker for my children when they start to fly. >> that would be good. the low clouds are winning out here. strong push. i mean by 5:00 a.m., even concord, buchanan and livermore. the water temps continue to be cold. there it is. speaking of. good morning, steve. felt a slight sprinkle during my run in dc. haven't seen the sun yet. i think dc is daly city. i'm not positive.
our good friend antonio, the fog is back in town in daly city. a chilling 62. thank you sea temps. that is correct. very, very cold. around pacifica, 49. moss beach, 51. and the water temps, bodega bay is 50. too cold. san francisco buoy, 52. half moon bay buoy, 52. that makes a huge difference for those on the coast or in the city or even around the bay. when the water temps are that cold and in the 50s all the way down to santa monica and santa barbara. that is good. get the nutrients. we need that. low clouds when they get any kind of help, and they do with the on shore breeze. low clouds making a strong push. i don't see any warming inland today. not when you have gusts over 30. 50s on most temps. look for the fog to burn back. a little system will clip us on sunday. on friday, we will bump up a
little bit. not that much. 50s, 60s and 70s, slightly below the average on the temps. 7:30. sal, what do you have? >> we have traffic a lot more normal than it was yesterday over the contra costa region, for exame, and parts of solano county. 580 is slowing down on the way over to the richmond bridge. but it does look a little bit more routine today than it did yesterday. and also for the east shore freeway, the same thing goes. driving on 80 westbound, it is a 31-minute drive according to the road sensors from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. another 15 minutes or so at the bay bridge. much more manageable than yesterday. this is a look at san francisco. northbound 101 does slow from about silver avenue to cesar chavez. southbound 101 in case you're trying to get to the airport, that looks good. san mateo bridge and dumbarton bridge commutes are not bad. in the south bay, we're getting more fill-in up to the valley
which is typical. again, not too many major things. the problem on the sunol grade has cleared out. still slow from dublin down to the sunol grade. 7:32. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. a lawsuit against the city of oakland could be directly affected by the ruling of an alameda county judge about the ghost ship warehouse fire where 36 people died. >> alex savidge is in oakland. he says the families of the victims are suing the city. bring us an update, alex. >> reporter: good morning to you, dave and gasia. a key ruling as the civil lawsuit moves forward. the judge in the case says the city of oakland had a mandatory duty to ensure the safety of the people who were staying here at the ghost ship warehouse in oakland's fruitvale neighborhood. this ruling is being reported by the east bay times. we're reaching out to city officials for a comment this morning. we know however there were many visited before the deadly fire by police officers,
firefighters and building inspectors. still, despite noticing a shotty electrical system and clearly dangerous and cluttered living spaces, the collective was never shut down. the building erupted in flames during an electronic music concert. 36 people died in that fire. the victims' families are suing the city of oakland. according to the east bay times, this ruling from an alameda county judge now leaves the city potentially liable for their deaths. body camera footage released just this week shows oakland police officers visiting the ghost ship a year before the fire. clearly concerned about what they saw. >> yeah. i'm familiar with this warehouse. it is more of like a residence. like a loft. >> reporter: attorneys for the victims' families, along with the -- say that the city, along
with the building's owner, failed to take action that could have saved lives. now, according to the east bay times, the city of oakland still has the ability to file a motion in this case asking the court to drop the civil lawsuit. now, while the civil case continues to play out, at the same time the master tenant of the ghost ship, derrick al men aand max harris are both still behind bars, facing 36 counts each of involuntary manslaughter. those two men are expected to face the criminal trial. that should get underway we expect sometime this summer. dave, gasia. >> all right, alex savidge in oakland. thank you. police are asking for help in finding a missing guide dog. wilton disappeared yesterday morning. he was last seen in castro valley near redwood road. anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call police. the first death in the
united states reported from the e. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce. that person died here in california. but health officials are giving no other details. now, the cdc says the e. coli outbreak has made 121 people sick. the cases are in 25 states. more cases in california than any other state. dozens of people have ended up in the hospital, including some with kidney failure. and food experts say this e. coli infection is all linked to romaine from yuma, arizona. that makes the best way to not get sick, to avoid that lettuce from there. but food contamination is being reported more often. an expert told us one reason that people are eating more fresh produce all year round. >> it's very frequently precut, bagged, mixed and so forth. and that can increase the likelihood that if a contamination event did happen, you would have cross contamination.
>> also he says bacteria has evolved and it is more resilient. and most people believe that washing produce will prevent contamination. but he says huh-uh. some bacteria can get caught in crevices in food. oysters from canada. >> yeah. they're being blamed for making a number of people sick. according to the state department of health, about 100 californians caught the noro- virus in the past week after eating canadian raw oysters. the affected oysters were harvested at four farms near vancouver island, british columbia. the symptoms are similar to the flu and it is very contagious. a health warning in santa clara county about the measles. according to the san francisco chronicle, at least six cases have been reported in that county. health officials say the latest case involved a patient that recently traveled outside of
the u.s. the first case was reported march 7th. four more cases were confirmed by april 5th. the measles have also been reported in alameda county and nevada. officials say the original cases were link today a travel was exposed to the measles in europe and then came back here to the bay area. the time is 7:37. the population of california keeps on growing. with nearly 40 million people now living in our state. new numbers from the california department of finance shows the state's population stands at 39.8 million. there are 309,000 new residents since last year's survey. it includes newborns and people moving to california from other states and countries. san francisco and san jose are among the top five big cities in california with the largest population increase. san francisco added nearly 10,000 new residents. san jose added $8,500. sacramento's population has topped half a million for the first time ever. it grew by 7,000 people last
year and had the highest percentage gain of any big city in the state. some say the population boom is creating traffic and housing problems. >> we're not building as fast as we would like to meet the internal demand. >> i think it is planning for the future that we all know is coming. there will be more people here and how do we work together. >> affordable housing is one of the reasons that many people move to sacramento. a resent real estate report found that the sacramento area is experiencing the third fastest red growth in the nation. we have much more information for you on california's population as it grows and changes at ktvu.com. you will find the report under web links. the time is 7:38. when you head to san francisco international airport, now you have a new option. a new route between the airport and the milbrae cal train station beginning next month. that will help commuters coming from the south bay or up the peninsula because the bus service will take you straight to the terminals. there is no need to switch to the air train as you do with
bart. however, coming from the east bay and san francisco, bart is still the faster option. the time is 7:38. a group of bike riders is calling on the city of san francisco to put up more barriers between vehicles and bike lanes. last night bicyclists lined howard street forming a human shield, holding signs and asking for public support for better protection. it is a high collision area and designated bike lanes alone don't keep them safe. >> paint is not magic. and we are -- bicyclists are getting hurt and killed. >> my wife, she bikes to work every day. she is pregnant right now and is biking at work. she teaches at a school in the mission. i don't want her to be hit and killed. >> cyclists say ride share drivers and other drivers violate bike lanes and double park, causing cyclists to veer into traffic. they want bare engineers such as flex epost or reconfigure
the streets so it can serve as protection from traffic. the time is 7:39. this morning, san francisco mayor mark farrell will take part in the installation of new smart technology trash cans. it is part of the mayor's street cleaning efforts. now, these new cans are called big belly containers. they can hold almost five times as much trash, recyclables and compost in separate compartments. the new cans will be spread around the city in places that have a lot of foot traffic. five have already been installed in the castro. the time is 7:40. a split decision following the controversy over sex education in fremont. at 8:00, just how soon students will get sex ed in schools following a mayor thon meeting at one bay area school district that stretched in the early morning hours. we're watching a war of words with charlie barkley. how the hall of famer is responding after he said he wanted to punch draymond green
in the face. good morning. you can see traffic is going to be a little bit slow on some of these areas. there have been no major problems on 680 here at mission. but up the road, it is still a little bit slow. and don't forget, we are doing traffic jams tomorrow. this week we're doing something different. you can help choose the theme. just find our ktvu instagram account and click on our story in the top left corner. boy bands or girl groups? we will let you decide.
>> charles barkley said he wanted to punch draymond green in the face. that sparked a strong reaction from green and others. last night barkley apologized. >> my personal opinions should never come across in a comment that i make about a team or player. it did last night. draymond is a hell of a player. he is an irritant. he annoys me at times but he is a hell of a player. but what i said was wrong and i apologize. >> sparkly also apologize today green's mother, mary, who criticized barkley on twitter. the warriors are in new orleans. game three is tomorrow night with the pelicans. >> apologize to mom. >> he did the right thing. last night the sharks shut out the las vegas knights 4-0. now the western conference semifinal is tied. >> marcus sorenson. he has room. here he comes. he scores! >> marcus sorenson and yanis of the sharks scored four minutes
apart in the 1st period, giving san jose that fast start that the head coach wanted. so the series is tied at two. it is only the third time that all season that the sharks had beaten the golden knights. they will play again tomorrow night in las vegas. very nice. let's bring in mike mibach for a look at what is coming up on mornings on 2. >> what a game he had. 34 saves an absolute brick wall in net. looking forward to that series. coming up, big changes for the boy scouts. why the organization is dropping the word boy from its name. also a santa rosa man loses his home and business in the north bay fires. coming up on the 9, we will talk to him about the $25,000 surprise he just received to help him rebuild his home and business. and of course good old mrs. c, mrs. cunningham will join us
from happy days. that is in the next hour of mornings on 2. >> yep. >> a lot going on with the police departments in the bay area's three biggest cities. >> san francisco police chief, oakland police chief and san jose police chief all sat down recently with mike mibach. during a round table discussion they went on the record and talked about their departments and the various issues they're facing. >> now, you can see that police chief discussion right here on ktvu at 6:30 saturday morning. the show, on the record. a sit-down with bay area's police chiefs. it will air before mornings on 2 this weekend. let's help get you out the door. a normal traffic day, sal, never felt so good. >> i mean, we did have that very slow day yesterday that really set people back. today, it's a lot more normal. and we're going to start with the east bay. the richmond bridge. it looks a lot better than it did yesterday when we had a couple of issues on the span.
it looks slow but within the range of the commute for a morning drive. no problems on the east shore freeway or highway 24. there is slow traffic. but we've had a 34-minute drive from the carquinez bridge to the maze. that is around typical for this time of the morning. then you will see another 20 minutes or so here at the toll plaza. again, all looking as it normally does. we've had a couple of minor things. but compared to yesterday, it might seem like an easier commute. san mateo and dumbarton are slow all the way across. the south bay commute is filling in. we haven't had any major crashes. if i push in here, you see every freeway is slow. if you're going a short distance, you might want to think about using side roads. let's bring in steve with the weather. >> thank you, sir. we have a lot of low clouds in place. for most. not everybody is on the fog. it made a strong surge. temperatures are really stuck in the 50s here. a lot of gray over the bay as we like to say. i don't think there will be much in the warm of warmer
weather today. mckenna says happy thursday. thank you. sunny and chilly over in brentwood. we say that a lot in may. it is sunny but not chilly. usually it is warm. is it going to warm up? yes, a little tomorrow. near 80 tomorrow. then i think by sunday, it cools off again. we're in a cooler pattern here. it is tough to get around it. brentwood one observation there shows 54. antioch and pittsburgh at 53. dublin is 53. moraga, 48. everybody else 52. walnut creek and even el sobrante and pinole at 51 degrees. not much of a spread there. that's the on shore breeze for us. or it is awe howling wind out to the delta. travis had gusts at 36 miles per hour when i came in. now it has backed off a little bit to 30. even napa airport, due west. vacaville, due west. the low clouds have made it out there. bodega bay not reporting. it was 49. now 50. san francisco buoy 52. half moon bay, the water temp, 52. and 50 degree water temp goes
from crescent city, actually off of oregon all the way down to santa monica and santa barbara. that is very cold water. the upwelling is good buzz when you get a disturbance coming in, that ramps up the fog. 40s for almost everybody. fairfield 50 with a south/southwest breeze. half moon bay, 52. livermore, 52. if you didn't hear yesterday, on the desert, phoenix was 75 degrees. almost 20 degrees below average for some on the desert. they will warm up. that is moving off into the plains. for us, low clouds will give way. a lot of cloud cover moving in. weak little systems will take aim at northern california. morn fog and sun burns back. we know what is going on with that. tomorrow will be a little warmer. near 80 for some well inland. i don't think we will get that much warmer. the fog will retreat. we know that. it burns off sooner on friday. saturday morning, it comes back. it will really start to come back big time saturday night and into sunday as that system
moves in for another cooldown. in the middle of the month, if the forecast models are right, unseasonably cool weather. brief warmups but the cool wins out over time here. 50s, 60s to low 70s. temperatures below average. certain san francisco. clearing a little warmer friday. nice saturday. cooler, sunday, dave. >> thank you, steve. >> you're welcome. the time is 7:50. new information about tv commentator charlie rose and sexual misconduct allegations. the new report on how many women have now coming forward. plus, the two men who were arrest at e starbucks in philadelphia, they have worked t a settlement with the city. the surprising payment they will get.

are all expect today recover. police in las vegas released new body camera video of one of the deadliest mass shootings in american history where 58 people were killed. >> we've got unshout suspect down. 419 inside. >> this is clear. this is clear. >> what was the shots fired in here. >> now, this is only partial video. but it shows the officers bering into the hotel room of the gunman, stephen paddock at the mandalay bay hotel. assault style weapons were scattered around the room. the window where he fired the shots, you can see them as police searched the room. >> anything in here would indicate two guys? >> i see a guy switching guns, not reloading. switching guns, not reloading. >> i have one wallet. >> there -- did he write something on that. >> the video does not show what that first officer who went inside actually saw because his body camera was not turned on. vegas police actually tried to block with the release of this
video. they were in a long court battle with several news organizations before this was released. we're learning that southwest airlines had a jet that diverted to cleveland because of a cracked window and the plane had been inspected earlier. the flight from chicago to newark, new jersey was diverted when passengers heard a loud pop and saw the window crack. the crew reacted quickly. >> we heard the crack and people started moving away from it. >> people started freaking out and we turned around and all of the flight attendants were running down the aisle to check it out. >> you couldn't get the seat belt off of me for anything. >> this incident comes two weeks after another southwest airlines jet was force today make an emergency landing in philadelphia. in that case a fan blade on one of the jet engines failed and debris shattered a window that led to the death of one passenger. the ntsb is investigating both
incidents. we're just now hearing arizona state lawmakers have passed a budget plan that should end a week-long teacher strike. they came up with a plan that will give teachers a 9% raise in the fall and 5% in the coming years. back now to the teachers situation in arizona. the teachers there staged a walkout last thursday, shutting down two-thirds of area family arizona's public -- two thirds of arizona public schools. two african-american men arrested in a starbucks in philadelphia for sitting at a table without ordering anything, well, they have settled with the city. each man will receive $1. and they have been promised city officials will use $200,000 to set up a program for young entrepreneurs. i know you remember when the store manager at the starbucks

is part of a bigger picture. that bigger picture is statewide mutual aid. california years ago realized the need to work together. teamwork is important to protect the community, but we have to do it the right way. we have a working knowledge and we can reduce the impacts of a small disaster, but we need the help of experts. pg&e is an integral part of our emergency response team. they are the industry expert with utilities. whether it is a gas leak or a wire down, just having someone there that deals with this every day is pretty comforting. we each bring something to the table that is unique and that is a specialty. with all of us working together we can keep all these emergencies small. and the fact that we can bring it together and effectively work together is pretty special. they bring their knowledge, their tools and equipment and the proficiency to get the job done. and the whole time i have been in the fire service, pg&e's been there, too.
whatever we need whenever we need it. i do count on pg&e to keep our firefighters safe. that's why we ask for their help. >> fremont school board makes a decision on a controversial sex ed program for elementary school students at the public schools. we will explain the vote that came early this morning after a nearly 10-hour-long meeting. could dna be used to help solve another unsolved case in california. how they are trying to use dna to solve the zodiac killer case. this is ktvu mornings on 2. >> good morning, everyone. welcome back to mornings on 2. it is thursday, may 3rd. i'm mike mibach. >> i'm gasia mikaelian. you won't be seeing much of the sun, least early on today. let's bring in meteorologist steve paulson. you're talking about a warmup for the weekend. i'm not sure i believe it. >> a little bit tomorrow.
>> 2-2 going back to las vegas. >> let's go down there. >> i had to get my beauty sleep. obviously i didn't get enough. low clouds are here. the june gloom has arrived for early may or fogusf, whatever -- fogust, whatever you want to call it. he doesn't like anything over 68 degrees. so if you like the cold and the fog, i can't do much better than this. if you want warmer weather, gasia is right, tomorrow looks warmer. what do you mean you don't buy into it? are you doubting me, young lady. >> i'm waiting. >> it will be a little warmer tomorrow. the on shore breeze has kicked in. for some, it is just -- wait a minute. it is a breeze. no it is a wind. gusts at 32 out in travis. cordelia, a good sea breeze overnight. upper 40s, low 50s. until that changes, i don't think our fog pattern changes. 50s on the temps. it is an on shore breeze from half moon bay to oakland to
hayward to san carlos. a west wind and a lot of low clouds. tomorrow high pressure will nose in for warmer inland temps. 8:02. and sal is much happier. >> yes. sometimes when one commute goes down, it affects others. today we've had everyone kind of staying in their lane, figuratively here. driving over to marin county, continues a terrible commute. right now it is backed up for about a mile before you approach the richmond san rafael toll plaza. also looking at a commute here where traffic is going to be slow on highway 4. again, within the normal bounds. but it is no walk in the park. it is backed up through pittsburgh and getting over the hill to bay pointed. traffic will be slow on 24 as well. but, again, more of a normal thing. 680 is a little slow from pleasant hill to walnut creek. 80 westbound about a 40-minute drive between the carquinez bridge and the maze. yesterday at this time it was
close to 90 minutes. this is a look at westbound bay bridge approach. and that's beginning to get lighter. 8:02. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. after a long meeting that went well into the early morning hours, the fremont board took a vote on sex education. >> there has been controversy over whether it is appropriate for certain ages. allie rasmus reports on what the board has decided into the fremont school board voted against adopting a sex ed curriculum for 4th to 6th graders after many parents objected to it, saying the materials were not age appropriate and too graphic. after six hours of public comment and several hours of debate among board members on how and if to change the curriculum, the vote finally happened at 2:30 this morning. >> we have a failed vote. >> reporter: and that failed vote, the bother rejecting the a-- the board rejecting the adoption of the curriculum. 500 people had packed the
meeting earlier in the evening. many holding signs with the name of the specific sex ed curriculum that the district was going to adopt. the majority of parents in the room last night spoke out against it. some were concerned about some of the images, videos and specific topics in that curriculum material. now, the board members determined ultimately early this morning they would either have to approve it as it or reject it altogether for the younger grades because it was too difficult to make the modifications that parents wanted. >> changes here and there at 2:00 in the morning. and i don't think that is fair. it is not good policy. that is not what we are. we are a policy making board. we are not a curriculum board. >> reporter: the board did approve that 3rs curriculum for 7th and 8th graders. but it appears the younger kids
won't have any curriculum on sex ed after the rejection of the proposal. they mentioned early this morning they would be creating some sort of committee to possibly come up with some other options. in fremont, allie rasmus, ktvu fox 2 news. our question of the day is, when should students learn about reproduction, sexual orientation, gender identity and sexual assault. 42% say 4th to 6th grade. 47% say 7th to 9th grade. 11% say later than 9th grader. >> having worked with middle school students, 7th grade is too late. students are facing these issues in elementary school. >> we're going to keep this question up throughout the morning. let us know what you think by voting on twitter and you can comment on our facebook page. dna could help investigators put a name and a face to the zodiac killer. the sacramento bee reports that investigators in city of vallejo have given a dna lab
two envelopes sent by the zodiac killer. authorities hope to obtain a full dna profile from saliva on the envelope and stamps and then track them down using the same kind of family tree tracing used in the golden state killer case. police say the zodiac killer murdered five people in solano and napa county and san francisco. he claimed responsibility for many more murders in letters often signed with the same symbol. the attorney for the accused seria killer and rapist deangelo will be back in court to make an appeal to the judge, trying to block prosecutors from collecting more of his dna. during yesterday's scheduled appearance, the public defender filed a motion in sacramento county to try to stop the d.a. from taking photos of his body and collecting fingerprints and dna. the district attorney said the warrant has already been approved. they believe deangelo is the
golden state killer and responsible for at least 12 murders and 50 rapes in the state in the 1970s and '80s. prosecutors in davis are looking back at three unsolved rape cases from the summer of 1978 to see if they can find a connection to deangelo. a 21-year-old uc davis student was raped in her apartment on june 24th a 32-year-old was attacked and a 33-year-old woman was raped two weeks later. authorities are looking into whether they can add the rape charges despite a three-year statute of limitations that was in effect during the late 1970s without delaying the current case. the first death linked to contaminated romaine lettuce has now been reported. officials will only say the person died in california. they're not releasing any more information. 121 people have become sick from the outbreak. there more cases here in california than any other state. dozens of people have been
hospitalized, including some with kidney failure. the most important thing that people can do is make sure that any romaine they buy or eat is not from yuma, arizona. >> reporter: fresh fruits and vegetables bring crowds of consumers to bay area farmer markets. in san leandro, many farmers were getting questions about where their romaine lettuce was grown. >> i said the lettuce is safe. it is from here, from local. >> reporter: local california romaine supplies are deemed safe. but the centers for disease control say a nationwide outbreak of e. coli bacteria illnesses have been traced to lettuce from yuma, arizona which supplies most of the nation 'romaine lettuce during the winter. the cdc reported the first death wednesday in california. restaurants in san leandro have been checking their produce supplies. >> all of our produce romaine
is from california. so we went on serving. i've only had a few inquiries about where the lettuce is from. >> reporter: uc berkeley food safety researchers boward says one reason for the contamination is people are eating fresh produce year around. >> it is frequently precut, bagged and mixed and so forth. that can increase the likelihood if a contamination event happened, that you would have cross contamination. >> reporter: he says that bacteria have resolved to be resilient. >> they can survive on surfaces and in soil and in water, on human hands or clothing or feet or things like that. >> i try to take as many preventative measures i can at home. washing everything thoroughly. >> reporter: even washing produce in general may not eliminate all bacteria. >> they -- some have invaded the tissue of the plant. some might be caught in creases that are not easily washed out. some form protective
environments for themselves called biofilms. those are difficult to wash off. this morning we're following a major revelation from rudy giuliani who says the president reimbursed his personal attorney for the $130,000 paid to adult film actress stormy daniels days before the presidential election. this morning president trump is tweet about the issue saying mr. cohen received a monthly retainer not from the campaign and that money from the campaign played no role in this transaction. it is a point that giuliani made repeatedly as well. >> that money was not campaign money. sorry. i'm giving you a fact that you don't know. it is not campaign money. no campaign finance violation. >> so they funnelled it through the law firm. >> funnelled through the law firm and the president repaid it. >> previously the president had said more than once that he did not know about the payment to
daniels. daniels claims she had an affair with the president in 2006 and she was paid to keep quiet about the alleged affair during the 2016 election. the white house has denied the affair ever happened. 18 members of congress sent a letter to the nobel committee claiming that the president's, quote, peace through strength approach is working. the group says the president deserves to be recognized for his work towards peace on the korean peninsula. if the nomination is accepted, it would go through a review process by the nobel prize committee. new information surrounding the ghost ship warehouse fire in oakland. what a judge just ruled that could leave the city of oakland liable for the fire that killed 36 people. another possible diplomatic break-through with north korea ahead of a much anticipated summit. that is my story coming up. good morning. right now we still have slow
house, a national day of prayer. it is an annual event. it has been that way for 30 years. you will remember the church's pastor and his wife lost their 14-year-old daughter in the shooting. they will be leading a prayer at the white house this morning. 26 people were killed when a gunman opened fire in the church outside of san antonio, texas. the president has yet to speak. we will monitor this in the news room and bring you more as the national day of prayer unfolds at the white house. another diplomatic break- through in north korea. three detained americans have reportedly been moved to a hotel ahead of their possible release today. greg has the story from london. >> reporter: the warming relations with north korea seems to be yielding significant results. tensions at the border are at the lowest point in decades. now the north is reportedly planning to release three american detain s. two academics and a businessman who had been jailed in a labor camp for alleged spying and hostile
acts. the white house applauding the move as a big step forward. >> that would be a great example of good will and certainly another step in the right direction. and a really good step in part of the process that we're working towards. >> reporter: the announcement comes as both sides prepare for the summit between president trump and kim jong-un. the president is leaning towards hold thanksgiving in the korean demilitarize -- holding it in the korean demilitarized doan. >> we should set the agenda beforehand. it will put more pressure on if china wants to change at general daniel such as the issue of u.s. armed forces in south korea. >> it will continue with maximum pressure during the talks. >> this administration will not repeat the mistakes of the past. our eyes are wide open. it is time to solve this once and forever. a bad deal is not an option.
>> there is no date set for the meeting. the white house says it could happen in late may or early june. ktvu fox 2 news. let's get you out the door. sal castaneda, traffic has been pretty typical today. >> it is improving too. we've had a good thursday, compared to yesterday especially. 80 westbound, if you are driving on the east shore freeway, it is going to take you a little bit to get to the maze. it is only taking about 35 minutes to drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. and that's pretty good for this time of the morning. you can see traffic is okay if you are driving through. there have been no major issues here driving into the area. also, looking at the commute -- you see the traffic is going to be okay on 880. it is a little bit slow. but, again, all within the normally accepted realm. and if you're driving on the san mateo bridge, this commute looks okay. driving out to the highrise. no major issues in the south bay. you can see traffic here is
doing okay. getting out to the area 17 and the santa cruz mountains looks good. let's bring in steve. >> thank you, sal. we do have a big fog bank out there. i don't see this changing any time soon. tomorrow it will burn off a little sooner. get a bump-up on the temps. but then we cool down. stratus quo. what he means by that is low cloud deck is typically called stratus. i see 50 in el cerrito. a little towards pittsburgh and antioch and brentwood. blackhawk should at 50. so it is a cool morning with mostly cloudy skies. a few locations, even low clouds made it out to parts of the delta. this is a very deep strong fog bank. and also the on shore breeze or wind has really kicked in. from sfo, oakland airport, and it has been strong out to the
delta. that's a west/southwest all the way out to the sacramento valley. when you get gusts 30 to 36 miles per hour, that is a june pattern. san francisco buoy, 52. half moon bay buoy, 52. that is very, very cold, cold water. and that cold water, 50s, goes all the way down to santa monica and santa barbara with 50s. we will see fog and low clouds. 53 in menlo park and over to fremont. 49 in pacifica. half moon bay and moss beach at 52. so if it feels cooler, it is. we will with take that down to santa cruz and over to pg and pebble and carmela at 52. you see the correlation. weak little system will brush across. it picks up the westerly
breeze. a little bit of warming tomorrow. the fog and low clouds banked up from north to south. and a lot of moisture coming in from the west/southwest from the hawaiian islands. a lot of that will take a turn to the south. there will be a spin in the atmosphere paying us a visit on sunday. we will get a warm up on friday and saturday. and then it looks cooler on sunday. it will be a brief warmup. i'm not showing any rain here but i'm showing disturbances coming in giving eureka, ukiah and mount shasta rain. if that's the case, we will have an increase in the fog. even through mid month looks on the cool side. most of these are a good two to four degrees below average for this time of year. we will see slightly warm weather friday and saturday. >> big changes for the boy scouts. why the organization is dropping the word boy from its name.

the weather. should burn off sooner tomorrow. frank says hi steve, not a leaf is moving in beautiful oakley. any wind coming our way today? yes. it will pick up later as the fog retreats. look at that. santa rosa, not that strong. west/southwest. napa west. travis gusting to 32 miles per hour. so there's going to be a breeze. and you can see it even goes all the way out to vacaville. so i mean it will pick up a little later for some. it will be a breezy windy day. plenty of low clouds in place. and i really don't see much change here. one low kicks off. another one moving in late saturday and sunday. 50s on the temps. they have been stuck, if you will. west at oakland, west at hayward. west in san carlos. with that in place and the big fog bank, i don't see how temps warm up for much.
all right. 8:30. sal, anything new or still relatively kai net. >> we have something going on in san francisco. i can't figure out what it is. but i do know where it is. that would be eastbound 80 right near 4th. something is going on. it is blocked from the building. chp is not reporting it right now. but maybe they don't know about it. they don't know about it. traffic is backing up on northbound 101. some sort of lane blockage. that means leaving san francisco for oakland, especially if you're trying to get on to the bay bridge, is kind of beginning to look like a bad afternoon commute because of this. let's move along and take a look at the bay bridge coming in to san francisco. oops. it looks like i have the bay bridge here. you can see this traffic is lighter. all of a sudden it cleared up. we're not going to ask too many questions about that. that is really good news. this is 880 northbound. you can see traffic is slowing down past the coliseum driving up to downtown. 8:31. let's go back to the desk.
the attorney for joseph deangelo is back in the sacramento courtroom right now appealing to the judge. deangelo's lawyer is trying to block prosecutors from collecting more of his dna. just yesterday the public defender filed a motion to try to stop the d.a. from taking photos of deangelo's body and collecting his fingerprints and dna. the district attorney argued that a warrant for the evidence has already been approved. the suspected golden state killer is suspected in 12 murders and 50 rapes in the 1970s and '80s. a developing story out of connecticut. police say they found a body in a barn that exploded last night following a standoff with a man who reportedly had held his wife hostage for several days. authorities say the wife managed to escape and told them her husband had held her in a threatening manner for three days. we're learning that the wife had filed for divorce about two weeks ago. when officers arrived at the home, the man refused to come out and soon after the barn exploded. nine officers were injured in the explosion but they are all
expected to recover. a ruling by an alameda county judge could leave the city of oakland liable for the deadly ghost ship warehouse fire. >> alex savidge is live in oakland with what the ruling could mean for victims' families in their lawsuit against oakland. >> reporter: it certainly favors the families in this case. the judge here essentially says the city of oakland had mandatory duty to ensure the safety of everyone who was staying here at the ghost ship warehouse in the city's fruitvale neighborhood, according to a new report out from the east bay times. we're looking for a comment on the ruling. we know over the years there were a number of visits from police officers, firefighters, and building inspectors here to this warehouse where people were in fact living. and in the end, though, despite noticing shotty electrical system and cluttered living conditions, the artist collective was never shut down.
in december of 2016, the building erupted in flames during an electronic music concert. 36 people died in that fire. the victims' families are suing the city of oakland. according to the east bay times, this ruling from an alameda county judge now leaves the city potentially liable for their deaths. body camera footage released just this week shows oakland police officers visiting the ghost ship one year before the fire. >> yeah. i'm familiar with this warehouse. it is more of like a residence. but -- like a loft. >> reporter: those police officers clearly concerned about what they saw inside the warehouse. attorneys for the victims say the city, along with the building's owner, failed to take action to save lives. according to the east bay times, the city of oakland still has the ability to file a motion in this case, asking the court to drop the lawsuit

i'll say it that way. part of my role is to run the police department and do it to the best of my ability. that needs to be my focus. we have a lot going on in san francisco. >> last night the san francisco police department released a statement reiterating what chief scott told us, that he is focused on his job in san francisco. in addition to chief scott, i was also joined by the oakland police chief and san jose police chief garcia. you can see our 30-minute special on the record, a sit- down with bay area police chiefs right before mornings on 2 on saturday. police have released body cam footage from one of the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history. >> we've got one suspect down. 419 inside. >> this is clear. this is clear. >> what was the shots fired in here? >> it's only partial video but it shows officers bering into the hotel room of the gunman at the mandalay bay hotel. assault style weapons are
scattered around the room. a broken window can also be seen as police search the room. >> new york new york. >> anything indicating two guys in here. >> i see a guy switching guns not reloading. switching guns, not reloading. >> i have one wallet. >> did he write something on that. >> the video does not show what the first officer who went inside saw. his body camera was not on. las vegas police tried to block the release of the footage and were locked in a long court battle with news organizations prior to its release. san jose mayor sam liccardo tried to persuade state leaders to send more money. >> for more on this, we find jesse gary in the south bay along with the mayor himself. >> reporter: had you a lot on your plate in sacramento yesterday. was it just about money or anything else. >> it is always about a lot of things. it all comes down to money.
one of the key issues we're lobbying hard on is to get some of the surplus for homeless funding and cities throughout the state. every big city in the state is dealing with the crisis right now. so we've got a request and a bill for about a billion and a half that would go to cities to get housing built quick e. >> when you go in and say i would like a billion and a half please in small bills, is this the kind of thing that you get push-back. >> as you can imagine, there is scrutiny, particularly from our governor who has been really -- has been a hallmark of his to be fiscally responsible. we recognize that. we're going to work collaboratively with the governor as well as both houses and find a way through this because we critically need dollars to get housing built for the homeless. >> reporter: let me move on to topic two, which is regulatory in nature. you have seen the scooters around up in san francisco and now that the board of supervisors is looking to enact regulations this month, we're hearing that the city council
may look at the samish other you in san jose. when we were talking we saw somebody ride by on a scooter. what is your sense on that? will the counsel look at trying to regulate scooters here in san jose. >> often there's a rush to regulate any time that there is new technology out there. we would like to study and understand it a little better. there is already state law that prohibits the use of the scooters object sidewalks. it requires using helmets. >> we saw the person that was on the scooter on the sidewalk without a helmet. >> exactly. the real issue is really enforcement. you can pass all of the laws that you want. you have a scooter police go out there and run them all down. so we've got a lot of higher priorities in terms of policing enforcement in our city. of course violent crime is the first and foremost. and so the question really is are more rules going to do much? let's focus on putting rules in place that people understand and making sure that the signage is up so everybody follows them. >> reporter: one of the other high priorities is bart funding to downtown san jose.
>> yes. yeah. we're on our way. we've got some more work to do certainly. and we had a huge help last year from senator jim bell and legislation s b-1 that passed. it is coming back to the voters because there is a petition referendum in november potentially to retract the taxes that were necessary to be aible to pay for that funding. and so along with that issue, there's also rm3 on the ballot in june that will be critical and enable us to have 375 million for bart. more money for the station and other issues that are critical for building out this infrastructure. we hope that will have voter support in june and voter support against the repeal of sp1 in november. in all goes well, we will be on our way. >> reporter: great game last night. both teams, sharks -- the
series tied at 2-2. both teams have a commanding victory, overtime victory. we're headed to game five. how is it going to go. >> we're going to squash them. we're going to take them out and move on to the stanley cup. >> reporter: boy, that is loud. >> that is not a scooter, by the way. >> reporter: exactly. so the sharks take out the dingy knights in six. >> yes. absolutely. >> reporter: thanks, mayor. back to you in oakland. >> thank you. amazon launches a child- friendly subscription service. how you can get discounted books delivered flight your door.
