6:00 am
from across the bay to around the world, the stories that matter on "kpix 5 news this morning." captions by: caption colorado linda macdonald is captioning for you in real time. good morning, everyone. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. happy wednesday! 6:00 is your time. and we begin with some new details this morning on the measles outbreak that started in southern california. five employees at disneyland have been diagnosed with the measles so far. three of them have recovered from last month's outbreak and are back at work. orange county health officials say at least two of the sick employees had been vaccinated against the disease. >> this is a very contagious serious disease. you can develop ear infections, pneumonia, encephalitis and people can die from it. >> cdc says two doses of the vaccine are needed for a lifetime protection. more than 20 high school students in orange county are being told to stay home. a student at huntington beach high had measles earlier in the month. students who are not allowed in
6:01 am
class have not been vaccinated. they have to stay home for the next few weeks until the incubation period is over. happening today, "right to die" legislation will be introduced at the state capital. kpix 5's anne makovec in the newsroom explains what the bill would do. >> reporter: it would allow doctors to prescribe life ending medication a debate reignited by a woman who left california because it isn't legal here. >> i'm not ashamed to attach my name to what i think is the right that should belong to all terminally ill americans, i really do. >> reporter: that is brittany maynard the bay area woman who was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and she decided to die as she put it, "with dignity" instead of letting the disease kill her. she took a lethal dose of medication last november after moving to portland, oregon, one of five states where doctors are allowed to help patients kill themselves.
6:02 am
>> as an adult, you are in charge of how much pain and suffering and how much, um, plodding forward that you want to do. >> reporter: this bill could face an uphill battle. in a recent poll by the new england journal of medicine 67% of respondents oppose the practice as does the american medical association. some people are afraid it could be abused in cases involving the elderly and the disabled. the bill being proposed today would be limited to those with less than six months to live and would require patients to take the deadly medication themselves without helping from a doctor. live in the newsroom, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> "right to die" legislation failed in california in 2005 and 2006 over objections from catholic and medical groups. some big changes begin this afternoon for commuters. highway 85 in the silicon valley. new metering lights will operate on southbound on-ramps between highway 101 and mountain view and 280 in cupertino. the lights will operate from 3
6:03 am
to 7 p.m. and next wednesday morning, metering lights on northbound on-ramps will be activated along the same stretch of highway 85 from 6 to 11 a.m. the reason, the improving economy has led to more jobs which means more commuters are jamming the west valley freeway. caltrans is considering an extension of metering lights hours on some other bay area freeways, as well. let's see if the commuters are jamming the freeways early this morning. elizabeth? >> of course they are. thank you. especially over at the bay bridge. the approaches still look okay. i'm surprised actually. they turned on the metering lights early at 5:39. and you can see it's very crowded right now trying to get through the pay gates and the metering lights which were activated but again the approaches are okay. westbound 580 not too bad so far or the eastshore freeway. not quite stacked up through the maze yet at 6:03 but, of course, those lines continue to grow as those metering lights remain on. here's a live look at probably one of our slowest drive times is westbound 580 between the altamont pass and the dublin interchange and pleasanton. there was an earlier crash at
6:04 am
vasco. quickly cleared to the right- hand shoulder. it wasn't blocking lanes for very long. unfortunately, it's still pretty heavy from the altamont pass, 27 minutes the drive time. the bulk of traffic is from the 205-580 split to at least north flynn and then slow and go all the way to 680 in the dublin area. here's a live look at the golden gate bridge where a little earlier we saw the zipper crews actually opening another southbound lane so now they have four in the commute direction. and everything looks great out of sausalito. it's less foggy in the camera, as well. >> there is a good reason for that. yesterday, we had this swath of clouds just hanging over the entire bay area keeping that deck of fog firmly in place. this morning, we are lacking those clouds. so therefore, just pockets of dense fog right now santa rosa visibility three-quarters of a mile. otherwise, it's concord with visibility at a quarter of a mile. and where it's clear it's in the 30s. 34 degrees in napa.
6:05 am
34 degrees in vallejo, benicia, martinez. 43 in fairfield. high temperatures a seasonal winter day. the north breeze at 15 miles per hour. string of 50s will be noted around the seashore. otherwise low and mid-60s common across the bay. to 63 degrees in san jose. typically 59 is your average high temperature. and low 60s from sonoma through glen ellen into napa. the extended forecast, we do see a trough in the bay area tomorrow producing partly cloudy skies. otherwise, high pressure builds in on friday through monday providing us with near and record warmth. rain back in the forecast on tuesday. michelle, we'll talk about that next time around. the french prime minister is hiring 2600 new counter- terrorism officers and buying better weapons. this comes a day after four people were arrested in connection to a deadly terror attack that left 20 people dead. the french government says it will spend nearly $500 million on counter-terrorism over the next three years. president obama says the state of the union is strong
6:06 am
and he is setting a new agenda to help the middle class. as begins against reports from washington, the president is now taking hits proposals out on the road amid growing dissension in the nation's capital. >> tonight, we turn the page. >> reporter: in his sixth state of the union address, president obama called on the new republican-led congress to help the middle class with proposals they are sure to vote down including tax hikes for the wealthy, free college tuition, and raising the minimum wage. >> if you truly believe you could work full time and support a family on less than $15,000 a year, try it. [ laughter ] >> reporter: he asked congress to authorize the use of military force against isis in iraq and syria and to pass laws to protect americans from cyber terror. >> no hacker should be able to shut down our networks, steal our trade secrets or invade the privacy american families! >> reporter: while promising to work with republicans, he also threatened to stop any attempts to unravel his actions on
6:07 am
healthcare, immigration and financial reform. >> if a bill comes to my desk that tries to do any of these things, i will veto it! >> reporter: republicans criticized the president's proposals before he even gave the speech and continued afterwards. >> he is squandering the last opportunity to set things right with the american people. >> reporter: in the official republican response, newly elected senator joni ernst of iowa hinted the new congress will be different. >> congress is back to work on your behalf, ready to make washington focus on your concerns again. >> reporter: the president heads to idaho today to push his proposals. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >> senator ernst out of iowa vows republicans will continue efforts to roll back healthcare reform. she also challenged the president to sign legislation to fast track the keystone xl pipeline. a free speech group is protesting across the country today. a group called "citizens united" is holding what they call a memorial for the first amendment. they say free speech died five years ago when the supreme
6:08 am
court ruled in favor of unlimited campaign contributions. protestors will march around san francisco this afternoon at 3:30 and 4:30. bart will hold a ceremony today to mark one year since one of its police officers died in the "lion king." it was january 21, 2014, officer tommy smith was shot by another officer who mistook him for an armed assailant. at the time the officers were searching for stolen items at an apartment in dublin. officer smith's badge will be retired at today's ceremony. and a former pinole police commander facing sentencing today in an elder abuse case. 38-year-old matthew messier could get a year in jail. he pleaded guilty to one felony count of lying about his assets. messier was arrested back in 2012 after a pleasanton neighbor became suspicious that he was trying to get the assets of an elderly neighbor. a stretch of tully road in east san jose will probably be closed until about noon today.
6:09 am
the closure is for eastbound tully between quimby road and capitol expressway. westbound lanes are open. because of a gas leak that happened when a contractor hit a gas main yesterday afternoon, fire crews sprayed foam so they could see where the gas was coming from. it took three hours to cap the leak near eastridge mall. people near the yellowstone river in montana are being asked not to drink the water after an oil spill last weekend. some people noticed a strange odor in the water. the oil company is giving away bottled water for people who don't want to drink from their faucets. about 1200 barrels of oil spilled on saturday. 6:09 on this wednesday. contra costa county supervisors are being sued by their own employees. why the lawsuit claims the supervisors illegally threatened to cut police benefits. >> the giants world series trophy is headed out on tour to the east coast. we'll take you to the big sendoff. >> meanwhile, i'm here in our kpix 5 studios and we are forecasting king tides, record warmth and rain back in the

6:11 am
6:12 am
6:13 am
i saw a commercial that said you can save $500 by switching to progressive. that was me, mom. [ laugh ] i thought you said "that was me, mom." [ laughter ] good morning. welcome back to "kpix 5 morning news." take a look at sfo. no reports of any local airport delays. we are lacking fog this morning except for santa rosa, socked in, concord visibility down to a quarter of a mile. we'll talk about that and the weekend warmup as the news continues. a cardiac surgeon is dead after a shooting at a prominent boston hospital. police say a man entered brigham and women's hospital yesterday and specifically asked for dr. michael davidson before shooting him. the gunman then took his own life. investigators are still trying
6:14 am
to determine a motive. but they say it appears the gunman was upset about prior treatment his mother received at the hospital. contra costa county supervisors have formally withdrawn their pay raise. they were going to give themselves the raise. but the issue prompted a lawsuit by the contra costa county sheriff's deputies association. the union says it stems from a series of threats by two county supervisors who led the pay raise effort. >> this is exactly the type of behavior from government officials that citizens don't want to see. if the citizens have a problem with their local government officials, they should be able to speak up. they should be able to address the situation without fear of retaliation. >> the supervisors have ordered county staff to keep looking for other ways to increase their salaries. big doings at sfo. the giants world series trophy is off to the big apple. >> yes. kpix 5's kiet do is live at the san francisco airport where all three trophies are on display and kiet, pretty cool to see them in person. >> reporter: i will tell you
6:15 am
this is one of the most unusual live reports that we have ever done. we are on an airbus 320 sitting on the tarmac at gate 54 at sfo and check this out. the 2014 world series trophy is sitting right here flying first class white leather seats, live tv, um, this is a -- [ laughter ] >> -- this is a cool thing here. they are heading into enemy territory to new york right now for a trophy tour. we got a lot of bay area fans out there at finnerty's bar in new york. it will be going to new jersey after that. and sitting right next to the trophy is ceo larry baer. larry, tell us, three times now in five years, is this getting old? >> never gets old. and this is a fun companion, let me tell you, having the trophy next to us on the flight. we have had -- we have been lucky that it's a by annual event. let's make it an annual event to take the trophy back to the roots every year after winning. >> reporter: got it. what do you say to folks who
6:16 am
think that this might be, um, um, rubbing their noses in it by going -- taking the trophy to the east coast? >> we called the yankees and the mets the teams there and certainly their area, and they said, come on, we welcome the tradition. we welcome the sort of ode to heritage of the giants. and so we are bringing willie mays this week on appearances. they are great franchises the yankees and mets, it's part of baseball history and we left in 1958 and we have people still alive from 1958, obviously, and their parents and great parents about the new york giants. >> reporter: larry baer, ceo of the san francisco giants, congratulations. let's hang out with you. all right. this is a very unusual flight for virgin but they just inked a new four-year deal so they will have a partnership going over for the next couple of years here. we are going to leave because there is a full flight of people waiting to go to new york. they have wheels up at 7:05
6:17 am
a.m. they will be back couple of days after that. they will continue the tour in the bay area. they will be in antioch by next week but for now the trophy on the plane now headed to new york. we are live at sfo. kiet do, kpix 5. >> ladies and gentlemen, that is a live shot! >> a money shot. >> that is a live shot. >> yeah! get on the plane? >> sit down, buckle in, take the ride. >> we'll have him live on the noon show from new york! [ laughter ] >> exciting talking to larry baer! i could talk to him all day long on the whole flight to new york. >> did you see the flight attendant all dressed in orange? >> sharks attendants do that on the sharks flights. they dress in the teal. >> and the trophy is buckled in. >> ready to go. is larry baer going with the trophy? >> of course. >> traveling the whole way, can't let it go by itself. out the door this morning, driving to, works we have a few issues to tell you about. this one coming into san francisco, so we were a little confused over which direction it's affecting but it was a tire from the southbound lane somehow flew over into the northbound lane of 101.
6:18 am
this all happened near the cesar chavez exit. they have to clear it. not much delay yet in either direction maybe a few slowdowns southbound but we'll continue to watch it. one northbound lane is blocked. oakland everything looks okay across this stretch. this is a stalled truck blocking a lane northbound 880 near 98th heading into oakland from san leandro and westbound 580, this probably is still our slowest drive time. kind of competing with the bay bridge, but half our commute between the altamont pass and 680. highway 4 is messy, as well. you can see that ride out of antioch into pittsburg-bay point line, concord area, very sluggish continuing southbound 242. a little fog reported in santa rosa. chp noted this earlier this morning so watch out for visibility problems along 101. here's roberta with the latest on your forecast. take a look at the bay bridge. what a difference 24 hours makes. yesterday at this hour the
6:19 am
bridge was not even visibility due to patchy, dense fog. this morning, we do have pockets of dense fog but not right here in san francisco looking towards oakland. current air temperature with lack of cloud cover into the 30s in santa rosa at 37 degrees. 38 degrees and clear skies in livermore. visibility now down to about a quarter of a mile in concord at 43. napa, by the way, we do have 35 degrees there. but we have a northeast wind at 5. so wind chill that makes it feel like 30 degrees stepping out the door so obviously you need your jacket. you will also need your sunglasses with the bright sunshine today and toward the weekend we are anticipating record warmth right here in the bay area. but we do have a pattern change. i'll feature that in the seven- day forecast. but first things first, king tides today impacting our local coastline. santa cruz with a high of 68 degrees. swells up to 8 feet. large breakers near the harbor entrance and strong rip currents that will happen during the low tide at 4:30.
6:20 am
high tides at 11:30 and we do appear tis pay the some minor coastal flooding. okay, this right here, this is an approaching trough. partly cloudy skies thursday. oh, meanwhile right there, that's where we have the tule fog throughout the central valley. that's what's slipping into some of our inland areas. meanwhile, we are under the influence of that right there. it's going to strengthen by friday. we are talking 70s from saturday through monday. 64 at the state capital. visibility down to a quarter mile all the way into fresno. 51 south shore. sun-up at 7:21. today's temperatures in the 50s and 60s. a seasonal winter day. we have rain back in the forecast on tuesday after the record warmth. michelle and frank? >> thank you, roberta. more dead birds keep turning up around the bay area. we'll have the latest on the effort to identify that mysterious substance killing the

good morning, everyone. they are calling it deflate- gate. did the patriots deflate the footballs used in sunday's win over the colts and when did they do it? the patriots deny it but we have heard that before. >> well, i'm not a crook. i've earned everything i've got. >> according to espn, the nfl found that 11 of the patriots's 12 game balls were two pounds underinflated by nfl regulations. the footballs were supposed to be tested by an nfl referee two hours 15 minutes prior to kickoff and then given to a ball attendant. if guilty the patriots could lose a draft pick. no word on just who "deep throat" is. former 49er coach jim harbaugh continues to fill out his staff at michigan. he hired his son jay to be the team's tight end coach and in an interview the younger
6:25 am
harbaugh shared a childhood memory. >> one time i was a kid and we didn't have any milk for cereal, and i saw him -- he put gatorade in the cereal instead of milk. it was the weirdest thing i ever saw. >> and how did that taste? >> i didn't try it. i still haven't to this day for good reason. it's not where gatorade goes. >> the harbaugh stories. he might be in michigan but the stories continuing. vic fangio the new defensive coordinator with the chicago bears. i'm dennis o'donnell, see you tonight. play of the day, we are going to have a little hockey for you in new york. we have rangers and senators. tied at 2, sudden death overtime. watch. >> scores, deflected in! rangers win it! >> and that's how it finished. one more look at the game winner. the rangers beat out ra, that's

6:31 am
at huntington beach high school in orange county, california, at least 23 students have been told to stay home after a fellow student was infected with the disease. >> this is a very contagious serious disease. you can develop ear infections, pneumonia, encephalitis and people can die from it. >> reporter: a lotter sent home warned parents that simply being in the same room with someone who has measles is sufficient to become infected. like the infected student, the teens who have been told to stay home were not vaccinated for measles. >> we almost wiped out this disease. and then it comes back because people don't get vaccinated. and i think that that is the scary part to me is that it can come back. >> reporter: the centers for disease control says two doses of the measles vaccine are needed for lifetime protection. doctors can do a simple blood test to see if people are vaccinated. don champion for cbs news. >> the orange county students who have been told to stay home can't return to school for 21

6:33 am
future. >> congressman's guest at the state of the union was a man who worked as an interpreter for the u.s. forces in afghanistan. the taliban murdered his father in retaliation. swalwell is working to help his family. he posted this photo on facebook prior to the speech. 6:33 right now. let's check our weather. >> big difference between yesterday just 24 hours ago and this morning because yesterday we had a huge blanket of clouds on top of the bay area. that was keeping the dense fog in place. this morning you can see the stars in some areas like right here. this is a view from our san francisco studios here at kpix 5. and we're peering out east towards oakland, alameda, emeryville and currently we have clear conditions. concord, however, has visibility down to a quarter mile in pockets due to some areas of dense fog at 43. notice san jose dipped to 38 degrees with clear skies.
6:34 am
it's also clear in livermore in the mid-30s. here's what you need to know. first off, grab that jacket heading out. you will need the sunglasses later today. then we are looking ahead towards your weekend and we're talking about, boy, some near or record warmth. by the way, today is the last and final day of the king tides and it will take place today at 11:36 in the morning at 6 9. partly cloudy 68 degrees. today in santa cruz with the strong rip currents we are going to pinpoint your seven- day forecast still straight ahead. >> thank you, roberta. a number of new accidents is coming in, in the last 10 minutes or so including a fatal accident right around great america and levi's stadium. so it's right there at the intersection san francisco tasman and great american parkway. the intersection was closed, one fatality, one serious injury. no estimated time when they will clear it. in the meantime, if you need to use that area use lafayette street as an alternate. also, a number of crashes i mentioned this one is causing a
6:35 am
traffic jam already at 6:34 southbound 880 on the approach to highway 92 the san mateo bridge. two left lanes are blocked so it's stacking up on 880, the approach on 238 is slow through castro valley. once you got on the san mateo bridge, it looks okay even though as you can see it's already pretty crowded trying to get out of hayward to foster city. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. >> thank you. some state lawmakers want terminally ill californians to have the "right to die." kpix 5's anne makovec in the newsroom reports they are introducing legislation in sacramento today. >> reporter: this proposal would allow doctors to prescribe life-ending medications. this comes nearly a decade after a similar bill failed. but a bay area woman inspired some democrats to give it another try. >> the thought that goes through your mind when you find out you have so little time is everything you need to say to everybody you love. >> brittany maynard was diagnosed with terminal brain canada and decided to end her life intend of let her disease
6:36 am
kill her. so she took a lethal dose of medication last november in portland, oregon, one of five states where it's assisted suicide is legal. she spoke to cbs weeks before she died. >> i think anyone who walked a mile in my shoes and knows what they are facing and has felt the like just bone splitting headaches that i get sometimes or the seizures, or the inability to speak, or the moments where i'm looking at my husband's face and i can't think of his name. >> a high ranking vatican official condemned the decision just a few days after her suicide. the american medical association is also opposed to the practice. some fear it could be abused in cases involving the elderly and disabled. the bill being proposed today would be limited to those with less than six months to live and requires patients to take that deadly medication themselves without the help of a doctor. live in the newsroom, anne makovec, kpix 5.
6:37 am
>> lawmakers in other states including new york, maryland and colorado are also planning to introduce legislation. a woman standing on a santa rosa street corner was killed when an suv overturned on her. police say it crashed with another car at third and b streets yesterday afternoon sending the suv rolling on the sidewalk nearby. the victim's name hasn't been released. the drivers had minor injuries. two boar heads were put on top of trash cans near a vegetarian restaurant in berkeley. one was found in front of a liquor store and vegan restaurant. the other was found outside of the restaurant herbivore. anna abramson couldn't believe what she saw when she walked by the trash cans. >> i was completely shocked to see the head and i guess partial skin body of a dead boar sitting right on top of that trash can. it was completely life like. it had just like a -- almost
6:38 am
wet looking snout. it really just looked like a wild animal that you would expect to see in the wild. >> berkeley police are investigating but don't know whether the vegan and vegetarian restaurants were targeted. a mysterious goo has killed more than 100 birds around the bay area. volunteer rescuers are now trying to figure out exactly what it is. state labs have ruled out oil. wildlife officials say it feels like rubber cement and it does prevent the birds from keeping warm. wildlife officials say the goo is limited to just the east bay right now. >> this is very unusual. this is a mystery. it truly is. we have never seen this material before. it's frustrating that we haven't been able to nail down what it is. >> wildlife officials say it's limited to the east bay. if you think you can help, check out and we'll show you how to register to help. two local community colleges will soon offer bachelor's degrees. foothill college know los altos and skyline in san bruno are among 15 schools approved for
