welcome back to "kpix 5 this morning." it is quiet there now. but boy, it's going to be loud later today. we are at the world series game at&t park getting ready for the giants to come home and playing the kansas city royals. the weather will be nice for today but this weekend, there
5:12 am
are some changes coming big time. we'll talk about that coming up. the tornado ripped through the pacific northwest yesterday workers in washington state beginning the long rebuilding process by fixing roofs and windows. in one house a trampoline was blown into the living room and one man was home when it happened. >> everybody is okay. all my kids were in school, wife at work. i, unfortunately, was not. i was only about 2 feet away from the window when it came through. >> homeowners aren't in the clear yet. there's more rain that's expected to hit the area. including this area. >> can you imagine? >> trampoline in the living room through the window? >> not in my living room. [ laughter ] we have some changes coming this weekend. boy, we could see some rain here pretty good dumping as we head into saturday. today, looking very nice. we are going to see a lot of sunshine outside. and the temperatures going to be warming up. some rain showing up in far northern california. it's beginning to lift north as an area of low pressure digs
5:13 am
off the coastline. with that in mind, starting out with mostly clear skies a couple of patches of dense fog and then becoming mostly sunny nice and warm away from the coastline and rain expected as we head into the weekend. all right. here's this low just setting itself up off the coastline really looks like could be a very stormy start to your saturday. maybe the possibility of some isolated thunderstorms once that front moves by. we have a lot of unstable air. the better part of friday looking good, game looks safe. early in the morning on saturday 7:00 you can see the front moving all the way across the bay area. then behind that, another wave of moisture moves in. maybe just in time for saturday's game. looks like we'll clear out for sunday. so after that looking good. temperature-wise we are looking at some 70s and low 80s well inland and 60s along the coastline. then the next couple of days, a little change in the weather as we seal much cooler air moving in with the storm system on saturday. keeping you cool but dry on sunday. and then warmer mild temperatures expected through the million-dollar of next week. all right. let's check the roads with
5:14 am
elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. we continue to be off to a great start. a few more incidents rolling through but i got to say they even cleared the overnight roadwork on 880 ahead of schedule. so yeah, overall we're good for a friday morning commute at 57:14 a.m. one headlight right now traveling across the golden gate bridge. they are doing the lane changes now so they should be getting four southbound lanes open in the commute direction and overnight a hot spot was san leandro. various lanes blocked northbound and southbound 880 but we have learned that caltrans picked it up ahead of schedule southbound so now everything is good between san leandro and oakland. farther south here's a live near the 880/237 interchange. 237 traffic if you are a silicon valley driver that is a six or seven-minute drive time between milpitas and sunnyvale. so we have been scanning the chp reports and this is the only thing going on out there and it's not affecting the main lines of the freeway. but it's in san bruno on that on-ramp to northbound 101 san bruno on-ramp to northbound. and it sounds like it's a construction truck and another
5:15 am
big rig involved. so may take longer to clear but again, 101 itself and 280 both looking clear in that area. we have been talking a lot about all the sports games going on later on tonight. of course, game three of the world series over at at&t. and we also have a preseason warriors game that is over at oracle and they play denver. that's your latest "kcbs" drive to work. back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. a halloween display in texas is causing a controversy. the man who created the ebola house says it's in good fun but neighbors don't see it that way. bud gillette has the story. >> it is funny in a way. but it's also a little raw. >> reporter: passing motorist admits it grabbed her attention. >> when i drove by the first time i was like what's going on? i didn't lock at it as automatically -- >> reporter: james says it is a joke. >> i just love halloween. >> reporter: but it's supposed to be a scary one. >> it's a halloween prank and
5:16 am
we just went through infectious waste route and put a few things together to, um, to hit a concord with everybody and have a good time hopefully in the end. >> reporter: he defends it saying ebola is never mentioned. this is all in good fun. >> this could be a way to not have to give out any treats at all but then again it could be other way where i have to spend thousands on candy. >> reporter: even police came to look at it so did startled neighbors. >> the first morning when i drove by and saw it, it kind of gave me a pause. it was right when the ebola stuff was going on? but i -- later i figured out it was happy halloween. >> reporter: but it's not funny to relatives of real ebola victims. lloyd is a friend of the woman who was engaged to thomas eric duncan, who died from ebola. >> this is violence that's deadly and you take that as a joke and make that a halloween decoration for your home? >> reporter: she calls it cruel. >> and i think this is so
5:17 am
insulting for those who is have lost loved ones because of ebola. >> there's negative people everywhere. they are going to give me grief about it. but it's all in good fun. >> so he is obviously going to keep it going. [ laughter ] >> yes. well, you know, halloween is coming up if you haven't heard 69s we want to see your costumes. >> are you putting together a costume? >> i'm going as a weatherman. >> to get you in the mood we have fun throw-back photos from our kpix 5 morning team it. a couple of pictures. can you guess who this is? the one on the left? that's lawrence karnow. >> yes. >> how old were you there? >> i think i was about 6 or 7. >> when he was a kid. >> yeah. >> you're the one on the left, right? >> yeah. >> look at you. >> my older brothers. >> never have picked you out. >> he is the vampire. >> let's look at this picture now. elizabeth, so adorable.
5:18 am
>> that's you? >> that's me. >> oh, my gosh. >> adorable. >> i love this one because you made it yourself, right? >> my mom made it. she can't sew for -- she can't sew. [ laughter ] >> so there was a lot of pressure for moms around halloween. i hated that costume. >> i love it. >> send us your halloween costume pictures. we want to see them get some ideas, too. you can do that by going to you can upload your photos and we will show them on halloween. i didn't submit a picture. i don't remember the last time i dressed up. >> come on. >> loser. [ laughter ] 5:18. >> i know. >> shoe fits. there are people who love baseball. and then there are people who love baseball more than they love their significant other. a crazy length one fan is willing to go for a ticket to game three of the world series. good morning, everybody. it's finally here! game 3 of the world is hours
5:19 am
away. and what they were saying as they settled in for the routine at the workout yesterday. and what's cool about your school? email your nominations to us at we may come and feature your school on the show. we'll be right back. >> first here's this morning's bay area jobs report with steven greenberg. >> reporter: effective networking will increase your chances of finding a new job. one of the biggest sources of new hires is from candidates who network their way into the company. anywhere from 20 to 80% of hires are said to be from networking. we know that in california, there have been more than 550,000 new hires reported in august. luckily for job seekers, there's no shortage of networking groups across the bay area. organizations like san francisco after work hold networking events regularly. there are also organizations and networking events for specific industries. another way to network is by reaching out to the five most successful people you know and
5:20 am
ask for advice, not a job. be specific when describing your skill set and your career goals. provide a list of job titles and employers as examples of what you're looking for. make it easy for your network to help you. being specific is memorable. it lets your network be confident that you will do a good job. i'm steven greenberg, kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,

5:31 am
cleared to play tonight. before wednesday, we hadn't seen him pitch since september but he was red-hot in kansas city but hopes are high for tonight. also making an appearance on the mound the giants fan who caught the home run ball that sent the team to the world series. frank burke from oakdale will throw the first pitch. he is being honored forgiving the ball back to travis ishikawa, a move that clearly paid off. and security is going to be tight for today's game. homeland security helping to make sure the ballpark is safe. bomb-sniffing dogs combed the park yesterday and today, fans will see metal detectors on the way in. you will have to pass through a metal detector as your ticket is being scanned. that is a new thing this time around. but it's something that we'll be seeing at all major league baseball parks starting next season. as far as getting here to the park, that's going to be its own trick. we have a lot of information for you if you are planning

oncoming out on our website, live at at&t park, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> all important weather forecast this weekend. really is. i mean, boy, yeah, this weekend could be a little difficult. i don't think it's going to be a rainout but we definitely could see some rain for at least the saturday night game. but today if you are going to the park, what a nice day to see the world series. is it ever a bad day to see the world series in san francisco? but the weather should cooperate very nicely . it's just partly cloudy skies throughout the game, temperatures in the 60s. now, that saturday game gets tricky. there's a chance that we could see some showers for the game. doesn't look like it's going to be a rainout. but yeah, be prepared. and those temperatures will be awfully cool. then mostly clear skies return for game 5 on sunday. all right. as we look around the bay area today, maybe the nicest day of the week 70s and low 80s well inland. some 60s and some patchy fog along the coastline. looks like these temperatures cool in the north bay. we are seeing a little fog there in santa rosa, 48 degrees. 54 in san jose. and 62 and mild in san
5:33 am
francisco. this afternoon, about 80 in livermore, 77 in san jose. and 65 degrees in pacifica. let's check the roads with elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. we continue to check out lafayette where chp says there's a truck fully engulfed and it was carrying one of those horse trailers and contra costa fire department actually tells us there were horses inside the trailer. again, it just sound like it's the truck part that is on fire. so hopefully the horses are okay. it is causing a bet of a backup though in lafayette. westbound 24 it's all right around the acalanes exit. now two lanes are blocked. so yeah, you can see delays at least one exit back. and again we'll just continue to watch it. the slow lane and the lane next to it are now closed while they continue to put out the fire. in the meantime if you are continuing your journey on 24, going towards the caldecott tunnel, no delay there between orinda and oakland. once you reach the bay bridge, maybe 30 to 50 cars deep right now in the cash lanes. fastrak lanes those are still clear and no metering lights yet. that's your latest "kcbs

san francisco has no tolerance for racist comments. we have no tolerance for anyone who wants to target a group in the community and part of the message also is that chinatown is an amazing community. >> the tour company city sightseeing said: comments made by this former employee on her last day of prompt are absolutely not a representation of how much we have love and support every other community in san francisco including chinatown. the baseball team is working with major league baseball and in the courts to win permission to play in san jose. the "mercury news" reports that san jose officials are giving the a's up to 7 more years for the negotiations. the a's do have a new 10-year lease at the oakland coliseum. but it allows them to leave early for san jose. there's another first for levi's stadium tonight. it will be hosting its first college football game. elizabeth has been warning you

skies over at&t park where it's quiet now. but boy, it is going to be loud there later on this evening! the weather looks good now. but boy, the weather this weekend is going to change a lot. we're going to talk about that coming up. water is at a premium and some say raising premiums higher is the best way to get through the drought. it's a harsh plan but as kiet do reports it's what one stanford researcher says we should do. it's a story you'll see only on 5,. >> when you have low supply and high demand of something, well, this just might be a good time to consider raising the price of water. >> there's nothing like a drought to point out the obvious. >> reporter: it's a no-brainer, says stanford researcher buzz thompson, who released a paper titled the path to innovation. he says water utilities who charge the same rate no matter how much water is used need to stop. >> the best way to encourage conservation is to charge those people who are using the most
5:43 am
water higher prices for those last units. >> reporter: thompson is talking about a tiered pricing system where the more you use, the more it costs. we're not talking about raising the price on normal household use. if you use a lot of water, say filling up a swimming pool, that might push you into a higher tier which means your water bill would go way up. making you think twice about installing a pool or even watering the grass. what's more, researchers say higher prices would spur innovation in technologies like a new type of membrane that promises to make desalinization more affordable. >> without adequate places for water, you see a dampening of technological investment. >> this is the worst -- [ laughter ] >> reporter: governor brown says there's no magic bullet for the drought and water pricing is only part of the solution. got a history of being the bad guy. do you want to be the bad guy physical case when it comes to water prices? >> there's a role for the state
5:44 am
but there's a much bigger role for localities. so these decisions on how to price water will be made in a variety of locations. but certainly, i intend to convene all the stakeholders and make sure we get it right. >> reporter: and we asked the santa clara valley water district to weigh in on this. they say tiered pricing works, they have seen it time and again. if you want people to save water, you can institute drought saving measures like water rationing and then drought recovery fee. but if they say if you want to get results quickly, hit people in the wallet. >> well, you know, kiet, like you said,. >> it's not neurosurgery. charge people more money, they will be more careful. but what about the industry that uses 80% of the water in the state, agriculture. what did they say about that? >> reporter: that's a very complicated issue. what you're seeing there is there is a use it or lose it mentality. a lot of people have water rights that go back generations so they are thinking about instituting water markets and
5:45 am
that is a farmer who say for whatever reason in one particular year does not need his water instead of wasting it, he can actually sell it to a different farmer who can make the most use of it. that's how you can conserve. that's how you can get through drought years. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. let's get a check on the roads now with elizabeth. how's it looking? >> we still have this hot spot in lafayette. you know, they are calling for ambulances now so -- there may be injuries. it was all started by a truck fire hauling a horse trailer. now the delays are as far back as lafayette barn. so it's all happening around the acalanes exits but you can see the delays are pretty bad for this time of the morning anyway. you're used to no delay at all through lafayette. speeds are down to 20 miles per hour. they have two lanes blocked. also, later on this evening, we have the giants game, game 3 of the world series, over at at&t park. game time is 5:00. so this is just as the commute is under way. traffic is already a mess trying to get out of san
5:46 am
francisco and in and around san francisco on a friday afternoon. so you add world series traffic to that and you're just setting yourself up for a traffic headache. so try mass transit. muni is offering additional baseball shuttles to supplement the n-judah and t-3rd line. also, ferries, alameda-oakland ferry and others offering direct service to the stadium. prepay if you can, as well. and i think they just turned on the metering lights over at the bay bridge in the last couple of minutes. what "kcbs" drive to work? -- what drives you crazy on your commute? laid back california drivers. she writes: seems like calif just sit e. i want to say "wake e light is green, you can go now." pausing a or two ter the light turns green before proceeding is a good idea.. >> all right. ramona is letting it all out. pausing a second or two after the light turns green before proceed something a good idea. not everyone follows the rules and you don't want to slam into
5:47 am
a red light runner. however, more likely the driver idling at a green light is a distracted one. we probably have all seen those who use stop lights as an excuse to check their facebook pages or maybe finish that last text. so when the light turns green, look both ways and go. pretty common sense. all right. we want to know what drives you crazy during your commute. ask a question or share a gripe by emailing or tweet me at #ewengerkpix and watch to see if your question gets answered on air. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." with the forecast, here's lawrence. we are kind of laid back out here, aren't we? >> we chill. you don't realize it until you go other places and everyone is honking their horn all the time. >> in san francisco, everybody is honking their horns, too. so. folks around the bay area today, we are in for a nice day although we are seeing rain on our hi-def doppler radar today. most of that is staying in far northern california. that will continue actually to lift northward and that means we are going to see a very nice
5:48 am
day ahead. we have had some reports of patchy, dense fog in some of the north bay valleys this morning. so watch out for that. but becoming mostly sunny, nice and warm, too. in fact, some of these temperatures may be topping out in the low 80s. and then rain expected back as we head into the weekend. so high pressure out ahead of the system is diving to the south and we are going to see a nice day today. once the storm begins to move in, though, it looks like late tonight early tomorrow morning, a chance of rain on the way. so throughout the day today looking good. some clouds moving in for the game but staying dry. and then tomorrow morning, 7:00, we have a nice front that's going to move on through bringing brief periods of heavier amounts of rainfall. then it's going to slide on by and another branch of that moisture moving through maybe for the next game saturday night. and then we clear out sunday. today should be nice. enjoy it. cooler temperatures over the weekend, too. 77 in san jose. about 80 in livermore. 70 san francisco. your sunrise time 7:27.
5:49 am
sunset 6:20. showers and an isolated thunderstorm on saturday. sunday dry. warmer weather over the next few days. so here's your official world series forecast. should be a great night to enjoy the game tonight with some mild temperatures in the mid-60s. there is a chance of some showers on saturday definitely some much cooler temperatures a little brisk out at the ballpark on sunday saturday. >> a chance. i like when you say a chance. because -- my necklace just broke. >> whoops! >> whoo. >> there goes the bling. >> there it goes. i forgot what i was going to say. [ laughter ] >> that's all right. let's move on. >> new jewelry. >> yeah. i need it. 5:49. sodas, chips, cookies. we know our favorite snacks are not always healthy but how bad are they? the nutrition labels that scientists say will help people getting sick. >> stop getting that stuff from the 800 numbers. >> i know! [ laughter ] >> baking a casserole a silly excuse for calling in sick to work. >> hey, michelle, guess what
5:50 am
this morning this place that i went for "where's roberta?" actually probably has a brand any necklace for you! [ laughter ] >> i need it! >> reporter: good morning, everybody. yes, i think you have already seen one of our teases for "where's roberta?" this place i went and visited this week it's actually very timely. with halloween around the corner, it's a place that's entrenched in the community 365 days a year. it's for the young and it's for the old. and, um, do you guys have any clues yet? >> i don't know. i don't know where it is. but i know i probably have to go. [ laughter ] >> you have to go to the bathroom right now or get a new necklace? i'm lost. >> no, no, no. i have to go to "where's roberta?" but yeah, we'll find out, though, right? >> reporter: we will, "where's roberta?" coming up at 6:18 right here on kpix 5. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

can't say thank you enough. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you have made my life special by being apart of it. (everyone) cheers! glad you made it buddy. thanks for inviting me. thanks again my friends. for everything, for all your help. through all life's milestones, our trusted advisors are with you every step of the way. congratulations! thanks for helping me plan for my retirement. you should come celebrate with us. i'd be honored.

plan for your goals with advisors you know and trust. so you can celebrate today and feel confident about tomorrow. less junk food.. or no junk food.. if you knew how longt would take chopper 5 over at&t park. they should getting ready for the -- they are getting ready for the world series. will the weather cooperate? maybe not tomorrow. we'll explain coming up. >> all right. would you be more likely to eat less junk food or maybe even no junk food at all if you knew how long it would take you
5:54 am
to burn off those calories? >> i say less but cate caugiran shows us why people are thinking twice about what they eat. >> reporter: scientists found a way to guilt you into eating and staying healthy. >> i think that people may relate to exercise more than they do calories. >> reporter: most people don't even look at how many calories are on nutrition labels but they did discover if you put down exercise data on the label, it changes the game entirely. >> for example, on this nutrition label instead of just seeing how many calories are in the bottle, you would also see it would take 4.2 miles to burn off this soda. makes you want to rethink switching to this. before you bite into this double cheeseburger would it change your mind if the label said it would take a 5.6-mile hike to burn it off? joe is a registered dietician. she says it's easier for people to think in miles instead of calories. >> people have a hard time putting calories into the total day. >> reporter: but as far as the
5:55 am
fda approving the new fine print on food? >> to change any label is going to be extremely costly. and really requires a lot of research to see if it would be successful. >> reporter: she also says -- >> you can have different sizes in people, different weights, different sexes. so i'm not sure it's going to be the sam amount of exercise -- i'm not sure it's going to be the same amount of exercise for everyone. >> reporter: cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> okay. well, i guess i'll read this. >> go ahead. still have money left to play with on monday morning? that's an actual excuse to someone used to call in sick to work. >> here's more. here's more excuses. i just put a casserole in the oven. >> okay. i woke up in a good mood and didn't want to ruin it? that's a good one. >> and i accidentally got on a plane. this is all compiled by it gets the top ridiculous work
5:56 am
excuses. excuses not to go to work. >> where's frank today? >> where is frank? what was his excuse? >> we don't know. >> we know but we don't want to share it with you. >> later. 5:56. health officials confirm the fourth case of ebola contracted in the u.s. this time, one of the nation's largest cities. precautions in place to keep the number from rising. >> reporter: talking about good excuses to call in sick to work, how about you're going to the world series game? it ready to happen in san francisco this evening. we'll take a look at some of the preps and the prices up next. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
