north bay still cleaning up from the recent flooding. they say they are getting dumped on literally. neighbors along the russian river are in clean-up mode, but kpix5's wilson walker tells us outsiders are making the problems even worse right now. wilson? >> reporter: well, yeah. the message from authorities here in west county is pretty straightforward today. this is a natural disaster, not an opportunity for some kind of spring cleaning free for all. >> i'm 84 degrees. i'm getting a little tired of what you see i'm doing back there. >> reporter: garden hose in hand, art mcnulty is still trying to clean up behind the russian river flooding of late february and so are a lot of people here. biggest problem now, the piles of trash just keep coming and not all of it is flood debris. >> absolutely. i saw a u-haul truck across the
6:04 pm
street. >> reporter: you saw people dumping stuff out here? >> yes. >> reporter: it was not flood debris. >> no, it wasn't. >> reporter: for starters, it is infuriating especially through the eyes of those still trying to get out from under the real mess. >> this stuff is meant for people like me who lost everything i had. >> we do not want the lower russian river to become the second county dump essentially where people come and leave their debris assuming it's going to be picked up by the county. >> reporter: that is supervisor linda hopkins. she said piles like these abandoned paint cans aren't just in bad taste. they are slowing and threatening the actual flood clean-up. that's because the county or state does not reimburse for illegally dumped debris. so all of this must now be sorted and tracked. >> it could absolutely threaten our reimbursement, which is why we have people who are literally photographing every single debris pile and folks following it actually to the dump to make sure no one is
6:05 pm
throwing things in on the way. it's a very serious process, but it's really unfortunate people are doing this. it's unacceptable. we have people who just lost everything and you have folks taking an advantage to get rid of their stuff for free. >> people to come from somewhere else and dump their crap is a little bit more than i like to see. >> reporter: you saw the no dumping signs that have been posted at any number of spots up and down river road here. authorities want to hear from you if you see people doing this. they are adamant about issuing citations for anyone caught dumping where they're trying to get flood debris out of here. we are live in guerneville, wilson walker, kpix5. mlb benched larry baer. the giants ceo was suspended without pay. the decision was handed down today 25 days after baer was caught on camera having a public scuffle with his wife. he's out until july 1st and is
6:06 pm
not allowed near the stadium until the suspension is over. baer released a statement mistake i sincerely regret and i am truly sorry for my actions." a live look at oracle park where the giants are gearing up for a preseason game against the a's and fans are filing into oracle park right now. they're weighing in. >> i'm glad mlb and the giants stepped in. i think we should move past it and focus on the season coming up. >> as long as he does what the team wants him to do,ing good to have him back. >> fans said this should spark conversation on how other pro sports teams handle issues of domestic violence. there are still questions about larry baer's future and how the team moves forward from this. >> our phil matier joins us to break it all down. >> the first thing was moving forward and that took a lot of behind the scenes work between major league baseball, the giants, women's groups concerned about the message
6:07 pm
being sent, the mayor's office who was concerned about what the suspension would be and even the district attorney's office which had to deal with all that going into their decision not to charge larry baer. the result was a suspension and a question about exactly how much power larry baer will have when he returns. will he still be the world champion face of the world champion san francisco giants or will he take a more back seat role? all of this is yet to be determined. larry baer was for decades the leader of the giants even though he was not a major owner. he held that group together and was the front for it, not only for the team sports, but also for the running of the stadium, which is a multimillion dollar operation and most recently the development that's going in next-door that the giants are putting in which is a huge development, all of this has major impacts not only for the giants, but for the city as well. there was a lot of behind the scenes saying how do we make this so everybody is agreeable to it and we don't have a bad
6:08 pm
reaction going forward. >> that's right. interesting mlb comes out fairly hard going three months. some people would say that's not hard enough, but that's a decision they make in agreement with the giants. so he's suspended without pay. he is not allowed near the team, but you alluded to it just a second ago. his return might be different when he comes back as ceo. it may actually have a different job title. >> that's right. what happened is while everybody was talking about the suspension the second part of it was that he is no longer going to be the designated representative of the team to major league baseball. that is a big deal. that is up there with the owners. instead you'll see robert dean. he's going to be acting ceo. ipart owner. be much more th at least his fami is. they own a good chunk of it. that puts him up there. there is possibly the new face of the giants going forward. >> that's more of the behind the scenes that went on. >> ken, in san francisco it never gets played out on the
6:09 pm
field. it's always in the dugout or behind the scenes. >> i agree with the other fan. let's move on to the baseball season. phil, thank you. new at 6:00 chick-fil-a is giving concord a second try. its first location was struck down, but the fast food chain now wants to build a drive-thru along willow pass road. kpix5's juliette goodrich joins us from the proposed site. juliette? >> reporter: here is the staff report and in it says nothing about concord not wanting a chick-fil-a, but the city council tonight has to decide on zoning for a drive-thru. so they had to give the go ahead to change the whole area to have a drive-thru and this isn't the first time chick-fil- a has tried to come to concord. ever since lin's chinese buffet shut down two years ago the building has stayed vacant, some seeing it as an eyesore. now chick-fil-a sees it as a great spot for a drive-thru. >> oh, it would certainly be better than that. there's so much garbage in the
6:10 pm
bushes. it's been there forever. yeah. >> reporter: but a recent staff report is suggesting the city council reject the idea. what's the beef? well, it's not over the fast food chain itself. it has more to do with where chick-fil-a wants to set up shop, along highly congested will low pass road, and there are concerns about traffic and economic development. >> it's a pretty busy street despite it being a side street. >> reporter: this isn't the first time chick-fil-a has tried to come to town. the fast food chain explored moving into the vacant elephant war location near interstate 680 but was turned down because of traffic concerns there. >> there's enough of those nowadays, a chick-fil-a, burger king. >> reporter: concord said it is not opposinged to drive- thrus and the city has welcomed new restaurants to the area, but this location is right next to corporate real estate and a drive-thru isn't consistent with the city's overall economic goals. >> one of the things that we fail to realize is businesses
6:11 pm
like winn's, these independent businesses are what drives the american economy. >> anything but chick-fil-a. >> i'm a vegetarian, so i would say no. >> reporter: how about you? >> yes. >> reporter: the city did not want to comment until tonight's city council meeting, but it was interesting doing the story asking people what would you want here? they had a whole list of food items. it has nothing to do with what restaurant would go here. chick-fil-a could go they're if they allowed a drive-thru, but here's the real reason why it's a sticking point, because you've got busy willow pass road. it's very congested. you have real estate and commercial buildings here. so the city council has that to decide tonight, nothing to do with the menu that we all love, right? back to you. off the coast of p never makes it back, the frantic search to find him. >> reporter: we're in the santa cruz mountains checking
6:12 pm

6:16 pm
newts. the trail hasn't seen regular foot traffic in decades and it shows. after 2 miles and 1,000 feet of elevation gain, a bench and solitude awaits. this view hasn't been seen by the public in generations. >> very pristine. it doesn't have a road network. it doesn't have invasives. it really is a beautiful forest and so we'll be able to keep it that way through this deal. >> reporter: the other big part of the $12 million deal is this 600 acres near aptos called valencia creek. trees will still be harvested but with restrictions including a ban on clear cutting. the open space trust said working together instead of against logging companies is the way to move forward. >> working towards goals collaboratively is a new approach. it's exciting for us and hopefully there's more opportunities to do that. >> reporter: as for the 320 acres in gazos creek, it will be cleaned up and likely added to the state park system and perhaps some new trails will be
