i'm michelle griego. >> i'm kenny choi. let's check the conditions. the bay bridge, a nice shot this morning, a clear view of one of the most beautiful bridges in the world. >> ooooo! [ laughter ] >> i know. it is. it's beautiful, right? >> it's an adult version of disneyland without the eticket. >> it's cool for everyone to goes over it. >> my daughter loves the bay bridge! >> really at 3 years old? >> she knows it. >> gosh, she is so smart. [ laughter ] >> brilliant. >> that's what i think. >> hi, everybody. good morning. we can see the top of the bay bridge this morning. we can see the tower at sfo. so we'll keep you posted of the possibility of any kind of airport delays. we do have a gray slate out there right now temperature- wise anywhere from 55 in santa rosa to 61 degrees in oakland. winds have been under 10 but will be picking up to 20 later today. gusts up to 30.
5:01 am
look at the numbers. we're slightly below average. but near perfect for this summer day in the month of august. temperatures are in the 60s today for a forecast high along the beaches no sunshine there but ample sunshine around the peninsula. climbing to 81 degrees in palo alto through los altos and then 83 in cupertino, campbell, back into sunnyvale, upper 70s in milpitas through fremont and then the further inland you travel east up to nearly 90 in brentwood, hey, byron, i bet you top off at 90 today. 88 in antioch. mid-80s throughout the tri- valley. high 50s north bay beaches through the 60s in mill valley through the 70s in petaluma. up to 80 in sonoma and napa. and you want low to mid-90s? met towards ukiah, lakeport and clearlake. we have the full forecast at 18 past the hour. >> let's check your altamont pass this morning. coming out of tracy, cars moving about 30 miles per hour. dublin interchange commute about 15 minutes. slow traffic in the commute direction there.
5:02 am
also keep in mind there is some roadwork it should have ended about 5:00 but still causing major delays from your morgan hill to san jose commute northbound 101 between dunne avenue and blossom hill road and then here's a look at your bay bridge toll plaza. you have some backups in the cash lane carquinez bridge to the maze will take about 18 to 20 minutes and here's a look at your mass transit. no delays. the new school year soon to begin stanford university is launching a strict new policy regarding alcohol on campus. kpix 5's anne makovec reports. >> reporter: this is not going to apply to all parties. so it's not going to put a damper on the entire campus scene but these new rules apply to all on campus undergraduate housing. no hard alcohol allowed. that includes mixed drinks or shots. it doesn't apply to beer or
5:03 am
wine for students who are 21 and up. and liquor will be allowed at parties hosted by student organizations in homes where graduates live. we talked to stanford students in april before the decision was made. >> it's absolutely right since we are discussing sexual assault and alcohol use to make sure it's healthy and happy but an outright ban is a law enforcement approach to a medical problem. >> stanford officials say this was an effort to limit high risk behavior. this all comes after stanford swimmer brock turner was convicted for sexual assault after a booze-y student party. anne makovec, kpix 5. san jose's police department may do some serious reshuffling to get more cops on the beat. right now, sjpd only has 413 patrol officers falling short of the minimum requirement of 500. it's been bridging the gap by paying overtime but that option
5:04 am
is too pricy. so the city manager, police chief and union president met at city hall to consider a drastic option. they are working toward pulling detectives out of the investigations bureau to place them in patrol cars. officers were specialized units would also make a move. >> we're going to have widespread effects internally, a ripple effect. but bottom line is, number one, get to the calls for service. >> long term, we need more officers. there are budgeted positions. we have vacancies we want to fill to join our department. short term, the police chief garcia is looking for ways to make the reassignments within the police department. >> the short term solution would require moving 47 officers to different posts. the department hopes to make these changes by september 11. in santa clara, a former corrections deputy is now facing charges for reportedly beating an inmate.
5:05 am
the sheriff's department says that former deputy timmy tri kicked an inmate in the head and face several times. the attack happened in the main jail back in october 2013. tri was put on administrative leave but no charges. now there's an arrest warrant. the sheriff's department is not saying what new information it received or if any other correction officers are involved in this case. hillary clinton's campaign is embarrassed again by an email scandal. meanwhile, donald trump is pleading his case with minority voters. for more insights we turn it ourwashington insider marc sandalow. so is there any evidence of corruption in the multi-million dollar donations to the clinton foundation. >> reporter: there's no evidence of bribery of corruption in the classic sense. i give you this money, do you
5:06 am
this. but in terms of money being influential, people gave tens of millions of dollars to the clinton foundation asked favors of hillary clinton as secretary of state whether it was a visa for a client of theirs or a private meeting. now, a lot of these things weren't granted but, you know, if you think of corruption as sort of the mayor daley tammany hall illegal activity no evidence that hillary clinton engaged in that but if you think of it as corrupting sort of her true north star with her behavior affected? there's enough there that it creates an appearance of it. >> donald trump is reaching out to minorities telling them that they have nothing to lose by voting for him. is that an effective argument, in your personal opinion? >> reporter: there is a legitimate policy debate about whether or not liberal democratic ideas or conservative republican ideas best serve the poor. that's the kind of argument you have in a presidential election but in donald trump's case he
5:07 am
began his campaign by calling some mexican immigrants rapists and murderers. he said a federal judge wasn't qualified to rule in his case because of his associations. he refused to speak to the naacp. he had trouble renouncing the klan. he famously said there ought to be religious test to keep muslims out of the united states. you can't make all of those arguments and then suddenly tell minorities hey, give it a try. what do you have to lose? you need years of -- of -- of a record to make that be an effective argument. it may well be that he was reaching out to swing white voters to try to convince them to that he is not a bigot which might be an effective argument for votes. >> over the last few weeks we have seen a shift in donald trump's campaign whether that's because of the changes at the top. who knows. but what's more important for trump right now, expanding his appeal or solidifying his base?
5:08 am
>> reporter: so that's the great question that his campaign is wrestling with now. the old formulation is that republicans are always going to get 40% of the vote. democrats are always going to get 40%. you play for the 20% in the middle. the problem with donald trump is he doesn't have 40%. he has more like 25 or 30%, i think. he needs to expand that base. but if he expands that base by softening things like his big wall to mexico or his ban on some muslim immigrants, he may be cutting into his other base. and that's a problem they are dealing with. one quick demographic reminder, he doesn't need all minority votes, just a small fraction of them. the white vote has gone for the republican party nominee every election since 1964. the last time democrats won the white vote was lyndon johnson a generation and a half ago.
5:09 am
>> marc sandalow in washington, dc, thank you. there is more fallout for olympic swimmer ryan lochte. several of his sponsors are cutting ties with him. speedo, ralph lauren, gentle hair removal and a mattress maker are ending their contracts with him. lochte has been under fire after reportedly lying about getting robbed at the olympics. surveillance video shows him and three other teammates at a gas station in rio. they claim someone robbed him at gunpoint but police later said that did not happen. lochte has apologized for lying. >> if i didn't overexaggerate the story, if i told the entire story, none of this would have happened. you know, i was coming from a friend's house. i was highly intoxicated. and i made immature calls. and if that didn't happen, none of this would have happened. >> lochte is reportedly
5:10 am
thinking about going to rehab. the competition is start to see who will host the 2024 games and los angeles is in the running. the l.a. mayor was in rio hoping to convince olympic official that his city should be the host. the 2024 games will cost about $6 billion. it could generate nearly $161 million from tv rights, sponsorships and ticket sales. l.a. is up against paris, rome and budapest. today in vallejo a bay area rapper is helping hundreds of preteens look extra fly as the fall semester begins. >> extra fly! [ laughter ] >> e40 is giving every student at benjamin franklin middle school a new backpack p jackie ward is live at ben franklin where kids will be making tough calls on colors and prints in a couple of hours. >> reporter: earl stevens is stepping up. he can relate to these kids
5:11 am
because this school is his alma mater. so for the past couple of years, the middle school has provided backpacks with the basic school supplies for their students thanks to community donations and grants. no grant money this year and that's when the recording artist said he would make sure students could be equipped with what they need for a successful school year. school supply kids with binders, folders, notebooks, pens and pencils are ready to be handed out. so e40 himself will be here later this morning to hand out 700 backpacks in all. in vallejo, jackie ward, kpix 5. time now 5:11. still ahead, a cracked windshield. why the driver of this car says the damage was lucky. >> president obama headed to louisiana today but some lawmakers say that he should have been there earlier. >> from the kpix weather center, good tuesday morning, everyone. our marine layer is just as deep this morning but the difference it will make in today's forecast.

5:35 am
yesterday off highway 1 near stinson beach. crews used a helicopter and a basket to hoist up the stranded driver and two passengers. the chp says that the main reason those men survived is because of the airbags inside the truck. >> it's 250 feet down with minor injuries for all. >> a preliminary investigation says that speed was a factor in the crash. san francisco is pushing harder than ever to clear up the homeless encampments on a street notorious for tents. division is no stranger to makeshift homes but the city is sending out more and more crews to remove them. in turn, san francisco is trying to step up its outreach services so that homeless residents stay off the streets. because mayor lee says the days of encampments must end, still some homeless residents told us they know people simply trade in tents for rvs to avoid constant moves. >> i think we are getting to a point where you can't say i
5:36 am
want to be on the streets without conditions. >> talk to a couple of rv owners and they don't get hassles by the police. the police are more kinder on rv owners for some reason. >> one homeless man told us despite changes in outreach services, he just walks two blocks down division each time crews come to set up his tenth again. a controversy in the spotlight in marin county this evening. people in corte madera have complained about the loud colored paint on the exterior of the tam ridge residences on tama l-vis sta boulevard. they will add gray and brown. the 180 unit apartment project is criticized as being too big for corte madera amid fears of extra traffic. new this morning, crews rescued a man who was trapped between two buildings. firefighters were called to the scene in pittsburgh, pennsylvania overnight saying the man was trying time press a

5:38 am
notebooks, pens, pencils due to grants. no grant money this year so a graduate is taking care of the kids. this is e40s middle school. so in a few hours, he will come back to his alma mater and old stomping ground to give out 700 backpacks to take care of the student body. in vallejo, jackie ward, kpix 5. if you fly in and out of sfo you will want to hear this. parking prices are going up. to park in the long term lot it's going up $7 to $25 per day. in the international lot prices are going up $8 bringing the total to $36 a day. airport officials say that the increase is to encourage people to take bart or rideshares. if you think of fall travel plans today is the day to book it. experts say august 23rd is cheap flight day. they say summer is a peak travel time because kids are out of school and families are getting their vacation bid. now tickets will start going down by 20%. experts say the best days to
5:39 am
buy tickets are tuesdays, wednesdays and saturdays. makes me want to go somewhere. i'll be searching in about five minutes! this month marked a big birthday for social security. the system turns 81. but ahead of all the candles and cake, cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to tell us what we should know before cracking into our benefits. all right. so you say americans are leaving social security money on the table how? >> reporter: you know, you are allowed to claim your retirement benefits as early as age 62. but your full retirement age is usually 66 or 67 depending on the year of your birth. now, if you claim your benefits early, it can permanently shrink the amount of money you will receive over your lifetime by as much as 25%. that's a big chunk of change. not only can that hurt you, it could also affect your
5:40 am
nonworking spouse who is planning to claim based on your record. the good news is although the system punishes you for claiming early, it rewards you for patience. if you wait after your full retirement age to file your retirement benefits, you're entitled to something called delayed credits. they can total up to 8% a year in additional benefits until you max them out at age 70. >> so jill, does social security penalize older americans when they work in retirement? >> reporter: yes. this is a tough one because more and more americans are working after they actually officially retire. so if you claim benefits early, remember, before that full retirement age, and you continue to work, you are subject to something called an annual earnings test. that means that if you reach your full retirement age, you can earn up to $15,720 no problem.
5:41 am
but above that amount, social security will withhold a dollar in benefits for every two dollars earned above that threshold. now, here's the good news. once you reach your full retirement age, you can collect your whole retirement benefit even if you do continue to work. it's also important to note that anything that was withheld while you were working, these are not lost benefits. once you get to that retirement age again, usually 66 or 67 at this point, your monthly benefit will be increased permanently to account for the months in which the benefits were withheld. sound confusing? don't worry. even while i was on vacation, i was working for you. i wrote an article about social security including whether or not the system is going broke. just go to >> you make it understandable easy to understand. i'm doing the math in my head. i figured out how many years i have to work. whew! >> oh, well, that's tough. don't do that. >> i know.
5:42 am
i know. thank you, jill. time now 5:41. a new vaccine is in the works for patients diagnosed with brain cancer. still ahead, what one patient says about the next generation treatment. >> here's something you don't see every day. doctors have to remove dozens of knives from a man's stomach. we'll tell you why. >> and let's take a look at 880 right now in oakland. you can see both directions moving pretty smoothly at this vantage point. roqui will let us know about any hot spots coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
