8:05 am
structure. we've also started ventilation efforts to try to blow all the air out of the structure, out of the hallways. >> still no word on the source of the fumes. that's a look at your top stories. back to you. >> all right. we are going to the race for the white house today. voters taking part in a couple of republican caucuses this weekend. marco rubio won yesterday's contest in washington, d.c. ted cruz won in wyoming. but it's a partial win. the rest of wyoming's delegates will be awarded at the state convention. republicans and democrats are campaigning ahead of tuesday's primaries in several states including florida, illinois and ohio. and we're talking about more trouble for donald trump at a rally near cleveland. secret service agents swarmed around the candidate after a protester tried to rush the stage. look at them taking him down right there. that protester removed and arrested. police in kansas city used pepper spray twice while

8:07 am

8:08 am
they're talking about changing their pensions as well. shifting from a guaranteed benefit to a 401k. it's interesting to note in that san jose story is that frustration at the city hall, they couldn't get a deal. they went to the ballot. >> take it to the voters. >> former mayor and the current one. take it to the voters. now that the voters have spoken, city hall cuts a deal. sort of a bargaining deal with the unions and the voters say no, we passed this measure. we've seen it in the state as well. take it to the voters, then you've got to turn around and deal with the voters after you cut the deal to negotiate a settlement. >> that's right. that's just the way it works when you take it that way. >> we go to the ballot all the time. now here's one that might go to the ballot as well. >> the metropolitan transportation commission releasing the conceptual design for a path. >> they've narrowed it down to two options. adding wings on either side of the bridge or going above
8:09 am
traffic like the brooklyn bridge. but getting back down into the city could be strucky. one option is a ten story plus winding spiral. >> a structure on the side of the bridge like little wings on the side of the bring and ease you down into san francisco. >> the cost estimates for the new path vary from $300 to $500 million. >> we were talking about voters. is this going to go to voters? >> they're studying it right now. they might put it on a ballot initiative to raise the to tolls on the bay bridges. this would be one of them. >> i'm wondering if people are going to use a bike path. i mean, you know, are they going to use it? >> the question is how many are going to use it. you have this back and forth saying is that the most effective way to use transportation monies but the bike lobby says it's fair because we've been excluded forever and on the political side they're sitting there going if we're going to pass this dollar toll increase for
8:10 am
everything from possibly a new bart transbay tube and other things we need every vote we can get and the cyclists might not use it, but if they vote for it we could use them in the packing an and help push this over. in san francisco schools are turning to sesame street to support and focus on a vulnerable group of students. >> the money ets will be used to help kids of incarcerated parents. the school board approved a new curriculum that will train teacher and counselors, as well as bring in had new books and videos to help kids cope. >> my father was incarcerated when i was 14. i thought that i was stupid, that i wasn't doing well when the reality was that my parent was locked up. >> it was uplifting to know we have a system of support? our san francisco unified school district. >> a study says there are almost 19,000 children of incars rate offed parents in san francisco. and coming up, new details on the german wings copilot

to warn authorities when a pilot's mental health could threaten public safety. this comes after a germanwis new rules to warn authorities when a pilot's mental health could threaten public safety. this comes after a german wings copilot deliberately crashed a plane in the french alps nearly a year ago. a new report says a doctor urged andreas lubitz to attend a psychiatric hospital two weeks before a crash. lubitz had been suffering from depression. none of the doctors he consulted alerted his employer. the presidential candidates for both parties are on the campaign trail this weekend as several states prepare to hold primaries on tuesday. florida, ohio, north carolina, illinois and missouri all vote. the primaries in florida and
8:14 am
ohio are critical for republicans since both are winner take all. >> that may have triggered a change in the tone at least at the debates. we sat down with willie brown. if we're seeing the same field of candidates as we saw before. his answer -- >> you go back from the first time they started last september on these debates when we were all excited about it it because it was great new theater. then you show up with these four steps and they sounded like stiffs. even trump did himself down in order to be equal to his rivals. >> in what way? >> equal in terms of being boring. to being unexcited. and those guys don't understand that the only way they can catch up with trump or beat trump is to exceed him in some way. he's way out front. he's so far out front that
8:15 am
anything that they do equal only to him doesn't hurt him. >> nobody is paying attention to policy. if you track trump's statements he goes one way then the other. so it's all about personality and they can't outshine him. >> no question. you go back to policy. hillary is suffering from addressing policy. if hillary had been selling i'm a woman, i'm a grandmother. if she'd been selling the achievement of this potential for equality and i'll knock out the ceiling, she'd be an interesting person. >> how about if she sold i'm tough -- >> a woman has to be careful. in my opinion as a public official, when a woman starts asserting how tough she is
8:16 am
means she's moving into the category of trying to compete as if she's a man. a woman has so many more positive, wonderful things about them that they should not dummy down to males. they ought to stay the woman. >> where do you see it going from here? >> well, i think hillary clinton versus donald trump. it'll be the first time he's been in a fight. he won't know how to handle hillary. he doesn't do well with women. remember he got smacked after the first debate even though she wasn't on the stage at the time. when he talked about, that face? >> you're giving the same old conventional stuff. his poll numbers went up for that. >> for a moment, for a very moment she literally sailed
8:17 am
into the stratosphere. >> as donald would point out she's no longer on the stage, he is. >> that's right. but he won't be able to do that with hillary. what is he going to say? he got say anything, frankly, constitutes something he's doing himself. >> he doesn't mind you shooting back at him. >> he should parade all three of his wives because hillary will. >> and trump keeps talking about bringing everyone together. we're seeing more and more protests. >> absolutely. it's going to be interesting no matter what. >> it is. with ohio and florida out there, this is going to be the big week for it. stay tuned, folks. >> get your popcorn. >> you can either eat it or throw it at the picture. and you can also just netflix it out at home while the rain is coming down; right?
8:18 am

8:26 am
simulated program that would feel like an internet environment but not be. >> last mile recently received funding to expand that program to six more prisons. but besides learning to code, what do inmates really get from the last mile? >> i would say the number one thing they receive is hope for the future. >> today i have a future. >> so for giving inmates the tools if for a job and a better life after prison this week's jefferson award goes to beverly perenti. this is a flip phone. have you seen these before? it's called a compact disc. oh. looks like we're getting a facsimile. what year is it to you? it's old. you'd rather use newer technology? definitely. well, i've got something to show you. this is the 2016 chevy volt. it uses extended range electric technology. the prius hybrid uses battery technology developed 15 years ago. chevy expects volt drivers
