fish and game and other agencies closed down the trail to search for the animal. no luck yesterday, but they're expected to look again today. >> it will be euthanized because it needs to be tested for several things including rabies. rabies is prevalent on mountain lions. >> fish and game says attacks on human by mountain lions are extremely rare. this attack is surprising because there were nine other people just a few feet away. >> nannette miranda, "today in the bay." >> tonight, pg&e will give a report on the recovery of this
neighborhood. the anniversary comes less than a week after pg&e learned it will face a record $1.4 billion fine. >> in large measure it means closure. the fact that the cpuc has finally completed the three-year-long investigative process and has reached a decision is, we think, very much a contribution to the overall recovery of our community. >> one sticking point, $950 million of the penalty will go to the state's general fund. in response, state senator gerry hill says he'll announce a bill ear marking a majority of the money for pipeline improvement and safety measures. pg&e is appealing the fine. >> urban shield organizers are firing back at the mayor to not invite the emergency responders back for their event next year. teams conducted a tanker spill

in a san francisco courtroom this morning. three more states want to legalize same-sex marriage. where do we go from here? >> a big turnout is expected for the hearing that is expected to go for two hours. hawaii already legalized gay marriage back in december so that appeal is at risk of being dismissed. the court there had upheld the ban but lawmakers had a voted to allow same-sex marriages. in nevada, a federal judge struck down an appeal, in idaho a judge upheld gay marriage. supporters of the ban said the state should promote marriage before a man and a woman. in 2012 fbt struck down prop 8,
the gay marriage ban here in california and ruled for more protection for gay and lesbian couples. a big turnout is expected so seating will be limited. >> of course the supreme court at some point, stephanie, has to rule and has yet to do that. thank you very much. >> it's 5:06 right now. the city of palo alto taking steps to be more responsive in response for public records in the wake of a santa clara county civil investigation. a report said they kept the city in the dark over public land issues and then ignored the public's request for records. they say they later added a form to better track request foss its

first persons to see that jobs number. i think you see it before the president does, right? >> well, it's a close call there between the white house and the fed as to who -- and of course the labor secretary as to who gets that first sneak peek. there always is that shock and you a moment inside the lockup when we first see that number. when i saw that number, just 142,000 jobs in august, i thought to myself we could be in for quite a wild ride. fast forwarding to where we are today, futures are lower after stocks did end higher on friday despite the disappointing jobs report, the s&p 500 closing at a new high, the dow ending a with a new record. the dow rising 67 points on friday to close at 17137. the nasdaq adding 20 points to close at 4582, as we head for
