"today in the bay" business and tech segment has the story. >> reporter: hollywood paid a visit to silicon valley to ride an actual hover board. bob gale who co-wrote the "back to the future" movies including the famous hover board scene, got to ride a real board. >> it's not a special effect. it works. it works!

that for other kids. it's a promise he's going to great lengths to deliver on. when he first joined the force seven years ago san francisco police officer jason johnson just like every rookie went through a probationary period. his was just about over when his captain conducted certainly the shortest job interview jason had ever been a part of. >> what do you like to do? >> i said i like kids. >> really? >> i said yeah. >> reporter: turns out there was a community policing spot at the willie mays boys and girls club. he was willing to try it for a month. he came back after one day. this is where i want to be. jason or officer j.j. is now a fixture in their lives. not just at the club but checking in on them at school or organizing a basketball tournament for them at a local church. anything to keep kids on the right path. >> a lot of the kids ideal with

on a daily basis, they can turn bad. they can turn good. they just need the direction. >> reporter: jason says from that very first day he knew working with the youth at bay view is what he was destined to do. jason just didn't know how far that would take all of them. to africa. ghana to be exact. two years ago jason started operation genesis a week long trip to ghana for a handful of bay view youth. he got the idea from a childhood friend who moved to africa and suggested it would be a powerful experience for the kids. >> they have this image or this definition of what being black is. and, okay, you think that's being black. let's go see what originally what it was like being black. >> reporter: jason says the impact has been remarkable. students came back from that first trip more dedicated to
7:26 am
their school work, their families, and their futures. >> it was phenomenal, the results were phenomenal. we said we got to keep it going. >> reporter: that's just what jason has been doing. not just planning the next trip, but expanding the ways he can work with the kids back at home, improving their plans for the future while solidifying his. >> this is absolutely the beginning. just the beginning. >> reporter: plans are already in the works for the next, the third trip to africa for operation genesis. this time they will be taking more kids and staying even longer. garvin thomas, nbc bay area news. fantastic work. if you know of someone doing something nice for others garvin would love to hear from you. go to our website and search bay area proud. still ahead on "today in the bay," big tobacco taking on a small northern california city. the law at the center of all the

7:31 am
california national guard. our investigation has found a major breakdown in the guard's handling of line of duty injury investigations. records we uncovered show california leads the way in letting down members of the guard. >> it's incredibly frustrating. >> reporter: he served his country for more than a decade including time with the california national guard. you decided to leave the guard. why? >> i'm swearsed to have ever been a part of it. they don't care. >> reporter: he wore a uniform for 24 years as a guardsman and as a marine, army soldier and airman including flying supplies into baghdad during the iraq war. was your life on the line when you were going in and out there was? >> every day. every day. >> reporter: when you joined the military did you ever expect to be in this situation? >> i did not. >> reporter: he served in kuwait during an eight year assignment in the guard.
7:32 am
>> reporter: in your opinion do you deserve member? >> i think all service members deserve member. >> reporter: these members of the california national guard also have one thing in common. >> my name is michael sternberg. >> my name is daniel. >> i've been waiting for a completed line of duty determination for four years. >> two years. >> took more than six years. >> reporter: their connection centers on illness and injury they say sustained while in service to their country. and on a national guard process called a line of duty or l.o.d.. think of it as a worker's comp decision. l.o.d. is the gateway to medical care, health benefits, and financial support for service members injured on the job. here's the problem. regulations state the guard must complete l.o.d. investigations in 75 days or less. did the guard meet that deadline? >> not bay long shot. >> reporter: sternberg said he made his first l.o.d. request
7:33 am
back in 2011. he cite ad series of medical conditions and injuries he says he sustained while serving on active duty and in the guard. in total he's requested seven l.o.d. investigations, he says none met the military's deadline. >> the reason i'm coming to you is because i've exhausted every administrative remedy i can. >> reporter: numerous letters to the guard and federal lawmakers failed to produce answers. in may the guard respond an inquiry from senator boxer's office and blamed much of the delay on sternberg's failure to produce requested documents. it's a claim sternberg denies. but the guard also admitted that sternberg's unit failed to initiate an l.o.d. investigation for an alleged injury that happened back in august of 2011. the report was not started until march of 2013. are you surprised to note mr. sternberg is frustrated with the
7:34 am
system? >> not after speaking with him. >> reporter: the guard designated lieutenant downey to investigate one of sternberg's l.o.d.s. we learned it was overdue before it even crossed his desk. >> i can see from the documents dated years ago that i knew that this was a long time in the making. >> reporter: help me under why this hasn't been resolved in more than four years? >> i wish i had a good answer for you other than my suspicion all along is this is a systemic problem. >> reporter: what your saying? >> i'm saying that this process is completely broken and does not work for anyone. >> reporter: california guard records obtained by nbc bay area provide insight into the delays. this february 2013 memo includes california has over 1300 overdue l.o.d.s and is the highest number of l.o.d.s by any state in the nation. a weekly snapshot shows that in february 2015, up to 88% of all
7:35 am
l.o.d.s were overdue. >> i'm not surprised. it doesn't even shock me. it's status quo. >> reporter: this is the business manager for the union that represent guard members. >> regulations are there. nobody is following them. >> reporter: he says he's heard the same story from dozens of soldiers and airmen that the national guard has failed to complete their l.o.d.s. >> i get emotional and i get frustrated because i know a lot of these people. >> reporter: the investigative unit also obtained this database from the california army guard. we crunched the numbers and found over the past six years 73% of all completed l.o.d.s missed the deadline. and this may be more troubling. of all filed l.o.d. requests, 59% of those files were never completed. and because of significant tracking deficiencies there's no way to know why many l.o.d. requests were essentially ignored. >> these folks, they served their country.
7:36 am
they deserve better. >> reporter: but why the delay? investigative unit requested an interview with david baldwin the man in charge of the california national guard. the general declined to answer questions raised in this investigation or by members of his guard. instead a spokesperson released this statement reading in part, the well being of our soldiers and airmen is the california national guard's highest priority. >> general baldwin is personally aware of what's going on. and i want seems to me that he's not taking his responsibility seriously to make sure that the rules are followed and that they are followed twin required timeline. >> reporter: but for these guard members, it's more than a failure to meet a deadline. delays have taken a toll on their finances, their personal lives and their families. after serving our country, they believe they simply deserve an
7:37 am
answer. was it worth it? >> i wasn't worth it. why can they not fix this system? >> reporter: angry? >> yes. >> reporter: michael sternberg finally received an answer about some of his l.o.d.s. during our investigation the guard issued a series of decisions in july and august, four and a half years after sternberg says he submitted those requests. ultimately his l.o.d.s were denied. now he plans to appeal. the guard has acknowledged problems meeting deadlines but says it has reduced the overdue l.o.d.s by 70%. the guard also says it's taking steps to address the delays but declined to provide any specifics. they do plan to ask questions of general baldwin. with the investigative unit, i'm tony kovaleski. >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit call us at

7:46 am
7:47 am
history after all. until just a few days ag >> california will not be making
7:48 am
history after all. until just a few days ago it appeared bakersfield kevin mccarthy would become speaker of the house of representatives with minority leader nancy pelosi both leaders would be from the same state for the first time. kevin mccarthy with drew just before the vote. now we'll talk about what happened and where we go from here. kevin mccarthy seemed like the logical choice. we were talking about how it seemed like we were going be making history in california. >> fooled a lot of us one more time. little red face. not only me but a lot of americans as well. why? what happened here? with the departure of john boehner the speaker it was logical really that the second-in-command, mccarthy would be the one to go into that spot. but no, no. for 40 members of the far right sometimes known as the tea party caucus the freedom caucus in other words, mccarthy was suspect as too moderate.
7:49 am
bingo. >> right. at first mccarthy seemed to overcome or neutralize the concerns of the tea party element in the gop. one comment though sounds like it wiped out that support. >> his demise was sealed when the committee on benghazi was intended to bring down the popularity -- yeah bring down the popularity of presidential contender of hillary clinton. well guess what? firestorm here. that statement gave ammunition to clinton. infuriated tea party folks. suddenly kaboom, mccarthy found himself without the necessary number of votes. so he stepped down. it's one thing to win inside. right? you're nomination. then you got to go the floor. and traditionally everybody goes along with the choice. these 40 guys said no we're not going to do it on the floor. that's what did it for mccarthy.
7:50 am
>> here we are days later. lots of candidates. not a lot of enthusiasm for any of them except for the noncandidate paul ryan. what do you think? will he reconsider? he says he doesn't want the job. >> looks like he may. we may not know that for a week, ten, 12 days. he's a strong conservative. that's good for ryan. he's got ties ryan does with the tea party element. that's good. members were thrilled the tea party when ryan was chosen as mitt romney's vice presidential running mate in 2012. that's good stuff. ryan who is for smaller government, privatizing social security, staunchly for pro life. he knows how to talk to democrats. ryan has been hesitant to run for good reasons. why? he has three young children. he knows something that a lot of us don't. kmoeps the speaker's job is the most demanding job in congress
7:51 am
