worried about a competition. "you know that's always nice, especially with being a human being. you can tell yourself not to worry about things as much as you want to. those thoughts always creep up in your mind, but now just to be able to focus and take control knowing that this is is my team, it's nice to just focus on the football side of it." but before fully focusing on what's ahead...there are still questions about the former 49ers quarterback. colin kaepernick...long gone, but not forgotten....and shanahan says the decision to not re-sign him came down to a matter of fit. "i looked at it solely where i wanted to go with the offensive scheme. i think colin has had a lot of success in this league and he still can have success, but you gotta commit to a certain type of scheme and the best chance to succeed. i think when we didn't bring him fully in as a starter, i thought that was a big commitment to make for a guy that i wasn't sure would be the starter." the 49ers hold their first practice tomorrow morning. mark carpenter, kron4 news

wasps are causing are the buzz in the east bay... and, not in a good way. since the start of the year... the contra costa mosquito and vector control district says, it has received a 63-percent increase in calls for service ..... to remove yellow jackets and their nests, compared to the same period last year. vector control says, a wet and mild winter is to blame for the abundance of yellow jackets.. the wasps did not die off as they usually do because it was not as cold... and, now they are thriving and becoming a nuisance for people.... while also keeping bee keepers busy. david williams/bee keeper- "if you're walking around your property, uh, cracks, seal up any cracks you have -- that helps keep them out and other ants and things like that -- that's the best thing you can do."deborah bass/ccmvcd- "about three-percent of the population do have an allergic reaction to the venom of the yellow jacket bite and so for those people, that can be very concerning." bee experts say.. should you come across aggressive yellow jackets...
don't try to swat them away or kill them. that's because they release a pheromone that essentially alerts all other wasps nearby.

republicans appear closer to passing an obamacare replacement. by friday, the senate is expected to consider a so-called "skinny repeal".( steve ) kron 4's washington correspondent mark meredith looks at what's at stake and why some fear millions of people could lose health insurance. trt: 1:34out: on capitol hill, i'm mark meredith.00:11-00:24 - fullscreen, lose lower third 00:33-00:41 - mark meredith / capitol hill 00:49-00:56 - sen. lamar alexander / (r) tennessee01:05-01:12 - sen. kirsten gillibrand / (d) new york01:20-01:26 - sen. john kennedy / (r) louisiana senate republicans are split over where to go next with health care.but tonight there are signs a so-called "skinny repeal" of obamacare may have the most support.the measure drops the laws requiring americans to buy health insurance.businesses would also no longer be required to offer coverage. but the measure leaves most medicaid funding intact. republican senator bill cassidy of louisiana tells us he's open
to the idea."if the skinny bill moves the process forward, i am all for it, the individual market around the country is imploding, staying in this spot, is just not going to do it"even if the skinny repeal passesit won't be the end of the health care debate. instead republicans would force the legislation into a conference committee... also known as a smaller, more manageable arena.today on the senate floor, tennessee senator lamar alexander urged his colleagues to embrace the idea."it is not a solution to the affordable care act problems but is a solution, to how we get to a place where we can write the solution"but new york senator kirsten gillibrand tells us the skinny repeal only leads to more problems - especially for americans depending on medicaid. "its certainly not a compromise, because its going to take away insurance, something like 15 million people, and it raises rates in all states"but republicans say they can smooth out problems after getting the bill through. senator john kennedy says its important to move forward even if the final bill isn't ready. "i don't know what the final bill is going to look like yet, but there is a lot of work going on for republicans to try and reach a consensus on what if anything, we can support"on capitol hill, i'm mark meredith.

"you know that's always nice, especially with being a human being. you can tell yourself not to worry about things as much as you
want to. those thoughts always creep up in your mind, but now just to be able to focus and take control knowing that this is is my team, it's nice to just focus on the football side of it." but before fully focusing on what's ahead...there are still questions about the former 49ers quarterback. colin kaepernick...long gone, but not forgotten....and shanahan says the decision to not re-sign him came down to a matter of fit. "i looked at it solely where i wanted to go with the offensive scheme. i think colin has had a lot of success in this league and he still can have success, but you gotta commit to a certain type of scheme and the best chance to succeed" the 49ers hold their first practice tomorrow morning. mark carpenter, kron4 news a couple of pittsburgh steelers arrived to training camp in stylelinebacker james harison arrived in a fire truck siren blaring away he said he plans to parachute onto the field for his entrance next seasonbut he was
