8:01 am
supposed to be starting tomorrow called free speech week. and unclear how it will look. the list of speakers is still very fluid. >> we will check in with christian in a bit, on the uc berkeley campus and tell you about the big name for free speech week that just dropped out yesterday and then we will tell you about the organizer of all of this. and exactly what his plans are. he plans to speak out apparently at a news conference later on today. we should learn more. and plus, say goodbye to summer. i already said goodbye to summer. did you say your goodbyes already? it is the first weekend of fall. officially. and not going to feel like it though. >> look at that. that is 24, not only is traffic moving just fine but there are days when we have taken a look at the same shot, rosemary and it has been gray and gloomy and chilly the last couple of days. >> and i turned on my heater the first time in my house. super wimpy. >> a little dramatic. >> this is not breaking news. >> this is par for the course. >> she is telling you the
8:02 am
truth. >> at least i know it to be true. >> we say goodbye to summer and we get the nice weather. there it is. that's what happens. >> a gorgeous start to the day. we have mostly clear skies around the bay area. and beautiful iconic golden gate there for you to view. we will have mostly sunny skies in store for your weekend. shear another view from up a-- here is another view from up above where we are looking at patchy fog trying to develop but not having much success. the drier air is in place. the winds are generally calm. over portions of the central and south bay. a little breezy over portions of the north bay. with the dry weather in place, warmer weather coming to the bay area, also means heightened fire danger. the national weather service is issuing a red flag warning from saturday afternoon, meaning today, into the afternoon, all the way into tuesday morning. and it is for our north bay hills. so everybody else looking, feeling pretty good. although we are late into the season of summer transitioning into fall and that vegetation is very, very dry. so just a heads up that we will
8:03 am
have heightened fire danger going into the days ahead. because we have warmer weather in the days ahead. 52 degrees right now in oakland. and 58 in napa. and 58 to start your morning in santa rosa. so the heat is not on just yet. it is a chilly start for some. upper 40s half moon bay and the inner east bay, walnut creek, and for the afternoon, temperatures going above yesterday's highs of 70 degrees. a beautiful 70 degrees in pacifica for the afternoon. and 75 in san francisco. a lot of 70s around the bay. a lot of festivals going on in oakland, you have the festival at jack london square and nice for you there. and low 80s in concord. and low 80s expected in antioch. and eventually these low 80s turning into low 90s. i will have a look at what you can expect in the extended forecast coming up. >> thanks, rosemary. happening today, conservative commentator, expected to announce plans for free speech week at uc berkeley. it is supposed to start tomorrow. >> and the list of right wing speakers has been changing every single day almost with the big names just dropping out
8:04 am
yesterday. and ktvu christian captain joining us live this morning on the cal campus where the organizer of all of this is vowing that his message is going to be heard. >> reporter: yes, at this point, though, that list of speakers is still fluid, is i guess the best way to describe it. the news conference will be expected today, to lay out the plans for the free speech week on the cal campus. we have video of a previous visit and if you remember back to february, it was an incredible scene. lots of protests. strong response here on the cal campus. protests starting fires. breaking windows. free speech week is set to begin here tomorrow. but the list of attendees as i said, still fluid. breitbart executive chairman and former white house advisor steve bannon has indicated he is out and conservative commentator ann coulter says she will not be speaking at cal this week. those opposing the conservative speakers say they are battling back hate speech. >> that means we are winning
8:05 am
and they recognize they are more and more isolated and more and more hated and not let them gloom together in berkeley and turn berkeley into another charlottesville. >> berkeley knows if they cancel the event it is bad press for them so if we cancel the event, we look like a bunch of cowards. >> reporter: for those who will speak, because organizers missed reservation deadline, the speech will be outdoors only. and the plaza has been reserved tuesday evening for david horowitz, and wednesday evening, if the leader is going to be speaking on the cal campus. you can see the plaza largely empty right now. getting ready for the cal/usc game later on today. when this free speech week does get under way here, and if those speakers are out here on tuesday, and wednesday evening, those will be ticketed events. to avoid a free for all. already, police here in berkeley estimating the security cost at up to a million dollars. the protest against free speech week, set to begin today.
8:06 am
with a protest at noon. and you can bet that there is going to be a lot more protests if free speech week progresses as they had originally planned. back to you. >> christian captain live on the uc berkeley campus, thank you very much. reaction has been swift, ever since president trump tweeted this morning that he is withdrawing an invitation to the golden state warriors to come there to the white house for the traditional visit for any championship team. >> and president trump made that tweet early this morning. posting this message that says, going to the white house is considered a great honor for a championship team. steph curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn. neither curry or the warriors have responded but social media is buzzing right now. the white house chief photographer, under president obama, posted this photo, right after mr. trump's tweet. the picture shows steph curry at the oval office demonstrating his famous jump start when he visited president
8:07 am
obama last year. >> president trump withdrawing the white house invitation and it could have been likely in response to what steph curry and other players had to say during the warriors media day yesterday. a lot of the questions, a lot of the focus is on whether the traditional visit would be made to the white house. >> rob malcolm has more on the players and what they were saying at the media day indicating they were not going to go. >> reporter: the champagne wasn't even mopped up from the locker room floor and the warriors were faced with a decision. >> at the end of the day, we are the ones that have to attend. if we decide to attend, and i think it is only right that, you know, we all decide together. it is not one person's choice. it is not two people's. you know, it will be between all of us. >> the nba champs traditionally make the white house visit during an off day on the road swing and for the warriors that
8:08 am
means end of february 2018. so far the team has not received a formal invitation and as the players decide whether to visit the leader of the free world, steph curry sounded like a state leader, saying this is an opportunity to send a strong message. >> we don't stand for basically what our president has -- the things that he said, and the things that he hasn't said, in the right times, that we won't stand for it. and by acting or not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country, and what is accepted, and that is -- what we turn a blind eye to. >> if the white house finds out that the warriors would turn down the visit, it is likely no white house visit would be extended. it seems right now the ball is in golden state's court and fans also have opinions. >> me personally, i think they should go. >> i would like to see politics be put aside. and go. >> and let the country
8:09 am
celebrate and their championship, and enjoy a really good thing that happened in the bay area. >> in 2016 when the warriors beat the cavs a trip to the white house was a no-brainer. former president obama, a vocal basketball fan shared the signature moment with this tweet. they are the kind of people you want representing a city. representing the nba. >> that was a different time. and faced with a different administration. players like andre iguodala is not mixing words. >> north korea is on our ass, i heard. so we got bigger problems between the ball and the hoop and going to the white house. >> and it was clear media day, this is not about steph curry or kd or one single player. according to curry, the decision will be made as a group later this fall, under one voice. another option for the team that excludes the white house visit is a trip to the capitol. that invitation has been extended by the house ma north leader nancy pelosi whose district is in san francisco. no doubt what the players decide will speak volumes.
8:10 am
from the warriors team store, in walnut creek, rob malcolm, ktvu fox 2 news. president trump stirred up some new controversy during a rally in alabama last night. the president criticized nfl players who choose to neil during the national anthem, saying they should be fired. >> you know, some owner is going to do that. he is going to say that guy that disrespects our flag, he is fired. and that owner, they don't know it, they don't know it, they are friends of mine, many of them, they don't know it, they will be the most popular person for a week. >> president trump didn't single anyone out but many players responded to the comments on twitter. and the safety says it gives others reason to protest and the detroit lions player eric ebron says the president should stick to politics. >> roger goodell says in part,
8:11 am
divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of pt for -- of respect for the nfl and the our great game and all of our players and failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our players and clubs represent for our communities. a busy past two weeks in oakland, a lot of buzz around the a's announcement they want to build a new stadium. and that commitment to the city presents some unique challenges though. some benefits. >> absolutely. >> and joining us this morning to talk about the plans for the new ballpark there, along with some other issues, here in the city of oakland, mayor libby shaft. kind enough to take some time this morning. thank you very much. >> good morning. >> can we ask you first, before you get to the ballpark, can we ask you first about the  president has uninvited the golden state warriors to the white house here, because he felt like the players didn't want to come, so he rescinded the invitation. >> just your brief reaction to that if you could. >> it is great to be an american where we can publicly
8:12 am
criticize our elected officials and speak our minds and steph curry spoke his, and i guess surprise, surprise, the president responded with his usual lack of grace. >> but is it where we should go to the white house, should we not go to the white house? >> well, honestly, i was not planning to go. if the warriors were going this year. but i want to respect their decision. and again, this is america. it is a free country. people get to express their opinions. >> okay. let's talk about the a's. i know the site they picked was not the site you wanted. it wasn't your first choice. they have also said this is not a shovel-ready announcement because there is a lot of stuff that has to be worked out. how are you feeling about the ax's plan at this point? >> the thing i am most excited about is the a's are going to stay and they are going to pay. this is a privately-financed ballpark. and so i respect that since it is their money, they have had to figure out where that is going to make the most sense. and i do hope that the community gives them an
8:13 am
opportunity to demonstrate how this can help and not hurt the community. and the reason that i have been cautious about this site is it does pose a lot of challenges, particularly in the current crisis that we are in around housing affordability and displacement. >> a lot of people in that community, to your point, have concerns about being forced out. being priced out in that neighborhood. and obviously, the campus community people associated with the college and throughout the community college, they have concerns about this sort of disrupting their community as well. and we have seen some of these demonstrations, video of what you are seeing right now. what are you doing? what is your role in this process to try to put some of those concerns, put some of those people at ease here, who are concerned about what may happen with this ballpark? >> my job as mayor is always to find the win-win, so again, the a's have come right out of the gate acknowledging that this is a crisis and concern particularly in this community. they are paying for a thorough assessment of who is in that
8:14 am
community. not just where they're planning to build, but in the overall impact area. and they are paying right out of the gate, for an education campaign to ensure that tenants know their rights and know how to access free legal services. on the city side, we will be enacting interim controls that halt speculation in that area. >> do you think though, because it is not shovel ready, because all of this other stuff has to happen, because opponents have already come out and said we don't want it here, how likely do you think that this will be able to go all the way through or could we end up back at the drawing board looking at other options if we hit some bumps in the road? >> the a's knew what they were getting into. this is oakland. that means a robust community discussion. and they, i think, were wise, they announced, this is our kind of courting period. and we want to hear from the community. i hope that the community gives them a chance to demonstrate that they are listening and i again, the -- the a's bring a
8:15 am
great track record of being community players. and i mean that in every sense of the word. >> it seems they are coming into it with be a own mind. another issue, unfortunately this week we saw a disturbing hate crime in the city of oakland. hateful graffiti spray painted on temple sinai. at times you attend services there and this must have impacted you on a personal level. what do you think about the response we saw this week from the community to the hate crime? >> the congregation at temple sinai responded in such an oakland way, in my opinion. they covered up those hateful words with words of love. what a beautiful testament to the spirit of that congregation. but also this city. the city is a city known for its diversity, for its celebration of diversity. and that means religions. that means races. and that is just not who oakland is. >> do you think this is part of
8:16 am
a bigger problem that the united states is seeing or this is an oakland issue? is this specifically something in that neighborhood? >> we know that nationwide, hate crime has gone up 11% particularly since this president was elected. and that is something that even cities like oakland are not immune from. but i have to say, you know, i was at services that day, and a woman came up to me, and introduced herself as a holocaust survivor. and to think of what she felt when she saw those words, coming to her new years celebration, it just broke my heart. >> sometimes you can't control whatever, but you can control the response. and as you said, and turn it into something that shows unity. i want you let you talk about the program called paint the town and the brochure here and what it is. it is a unique program for oakland. >> well, yes, the city is covered with roads and we are trying to make roads useful for more than just cars.
8:17 am
and so paint the town, this is a pilot program, it is pretty innovative, not a lot of folks have ever done this in other cities, we are inviting people to apply to paint murals in intersections or along roadways. and it is community building. it also slows traffic. so it makes roads safer. >> interesting. >> it literally is known to slow the traffic down a little bit. if you're interested, we are going to have five community clinics to explain the process. you don't need to have funding lined up. and it is honestly very cheap. and there will be some grants available for communities that would need financial assistance to do it. we are waiving permit fees. you just have to get a permit to throw a block party the day you do the painting. >> and the idea you could reduce some of the graffiti that we see all over town and you give people an outlet here and obviously we know there are a lot of artists in the city of oakland and you give them an outlet for the program like this. >> absolutely. that is part of it. there is a lot of creative
8:18 am
expression that needs to come out in this city. this is a productive way. traditionally, we have never permitted this type of artwork. so it is an experiment. we are going to try it out. we are going to see how it goes. in this round, we will bewaring 30 permits -- bewaring 30 permits all over the city, to paint the town and if you want to find out more, go to paint the town at oakland net.com. >> and before we go, i know you were here recently talking to julie and frank about the homeless problem and really what oakland is dealing with, and i got to tell you, you know, we see the tents up on every street, and in terms of what people can expect, in terms of solutions, and how to make this better, not just for the homeless but the people who live in the neighborhoods where all of these tents have grown, and what is the short-term, long-term? >> well, let me be clear that encampments are not healthy for anyone. let alone unsheltered residents. but we are determined to not just move this problem to somebody else's neighborhood.
8:19 am
if is complex. no one has come up with a silver bullet. but we are moving at the speed of compassion and capacity. and what that means is while we are working as fast as we can to create more successful, we call them henry robinson homes, these are transitional, supportive, rapidly housing centers that have been very successful. while we work to stand more of those up, we are going to be doing somewhat we call outdoor navigation centers, so you are going to see the city council approving up to three sites. at their next meeting. and are you going to see just addressing the immediate hygiene and cleanliness issues at encampments. you might have seen, we started distributing some porta- potties. hand washing stations. garbage collection. at some of the encampments themselves. and we have also put in a request to the county because they have most of the funding
8:20 am
for mental health services and all of the supported services that we want. and even the people coming to help are worried about hepatitis and those concerns have come up as well for people trying to help people, and you don't want to put yourself at risk. >> absolutely. >> thank you very much, mayor. we appreciate you coming in today. >> thank you. i know you have a busy day ahead of you. >> always. >> thank you very much for taking the time. >> we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> we will send it over to rose mary for a check of how this day is shaping up. we have a great day in oakland. blue skies to start the day. we have the festival at jack london square. the a's playing later today and fabulous weather on tap. it is 76 degrees. and it is kind of what you like. giving you a look here at storm tracker 2, and the clouds are gone and a dry west to northwest flow in place and leading to heightened fire danger for the north bay hills. and joining us, the red flag warning for that area starts later today, for the north bay hills only, and talking about the bay area. as we get into areas over the sierra, we have dried out nicely as well. but boy is it cold in the

8:32 am
what we call fire season. although we know fire season goes year round. just imagine all of that dry and summer time heat that has been over our area. and now for a few months. and because we are at our driest at this point, it doesn't take much for the national weather service to issue a red flag warning. and that's exactly what they're doing for the afternoon. starting today. and go all the way into tuesday, for our north bay hills. the higher elevation. because even though the winds are generally light out there right now, in the hills, a little gusty from the north and it will be a dry wind. and so with that, plus the heat, and we have heightened fire danger, for our north bay hills. right now, napa reporting a north breeze at about 12. and napa reporting, or fairfield reporting northwest at 7. and oakland reporting northeast at 5. and it is a calm one. in areas along sfo. and mountain view and half moon bay as well. and temperature-wise, off to a cool start with the clear skies overhead. and 49 degrees in walnut creek to start your morning. and upper 40s in santa rosa and going to the coast, we have 48

8:34 am
call free speech off this week or whether it would be on or off but organizers are vowing to go ahead with the planned activities. milo yiannopoulos expected to have a news conference this afternoon to announce his plans for what conservatives are calling free speech week here on campus and the last visit on campus sparked a strong response with protesters setting fires and breaking fires. the list of attendees is still fluid. former white house advisor and breitbart executive steve bannon indicated he is out and conservative commentator ann coulter announced she will not be speaking. and milo yiannopoulos says they have been working against free speech at uc berkeley. >> they are done everything to try to derail free speech week. >> for those who will be speaking, because organizers missed reservation deadline, the speeches will be outdoors only. the plaza is reserved tuesday evening for david horowitz and
8:35 am
wednesday evening for mine milo yiannopoulos and a live look this morning, at the plaza, it is all about the cal/usc game later on today. the events on wednesday and thursday, they are ticketed events to avoid what some have called a free for all. and already, police here in berkeley estimating the cost of preparing for this event, upwards of a million dollars. meanwhile, those counter- protests set to start later today. >> all right. thanks, reporting live from cal. it should be an interesting week ahead. >> thank you, christian. this morning, president trump mulling a possible new version of his travel ban. it could include some new more tailored restrictions on travelers from additional countries. homeland security is recommending targeted restrictions on nations that it says reversed to share sufficient information on whether visitors are considered a threat. now, officials have not yet said which countrys could be affected. the president's original travel ban was impacted, people
8:36 am
traveling from six predominantly muslim country, and it is set to expire tomorrow. senator john mccain could once again be the deciding vote on a bill that would repeal the affordable care act. the arizona senator says he will vote against the gram/cassidy bill. he says any legislation should be a product of bipartisan processes of hearings and debate. you might recall that he also voted no on an effort to repeal the affordable care act back in july. his decision may doom the current bill to failure. even though president trump is vowing to continue fighting. >> so he decided to do something different. and that's fine. and i say we still have a chance, or we are going to do it eventually, we are going to do it eventually. >> the republicans can only lose two votes and still pass the bill with a tie-breaking vote from the president. there is a little more urgency on this because if they do not pass the measure next saturday, a special budget would kick in and allow democrats to filibuster a repeal or replacement. >> senator bernie sanders was
8:37 am
in the bay area yesterday, urging people to keep up the pressure against attempts to repeal obama care. the former presidential candidate talked to thousands of nurses at yerba buena gardens yesterday afternoon. and sanders has co-sponsored a bill called medicare for all. he pointed out that opponents spent millions of dollars in california, to defeat a single payer measure for the state. >> we are going to be taking on the drug companies. we are going to be taking on the insurance companies. but you understand and i understand that when the american people stand up together, we are going to win this fight. >> sanders' bill would expand the medicare health insurance program to all americans no matter their income or their age. he told the nurses that the single payer plan would dramatically lower costs. the city of san francisco is showing some new affordable housing off.
8:38 am
the building is at 588 mission bay boulevard. and it represents a type of housing that some people say is needed all around the bay area. ktvu tara moriarity shows us what it offers. >> two bedrooms. >> reporter: this man can hardly believe his look. just two months ago, he and his wife, immigrants from tunisia were living in the tenderloin neighborhood. >> she didn't like the place. it was so noisy. and not safe. >> reporter: he is an amazon warehouse worker and his wife an employee at mcdonald's entered and online affordable housing lottery to live in the trendy mission bay district and won. >> wow, mission bay. we were dreaming before. >> one, two, three, cut. [ cheering ] >> today city leaders unveiled the 200 unit building with two vast courtyards and a fitness center and retail space. >> i am proud we were able to accomplish the largest affordable housing project in
8:39 am
the city in the last decade. >> kim says most of the units are for families of four with a combined income of less than $50,000. >> unless there is something wrong in your dna, you have to feel good about that. when you see kids and families and things, who you know have struggled, to be in the city at all. >> related and ccdc, or the chinese community development corporation, were in charge of developing the nearly $75 million project. fund can was provided by the city. and ucsf which will give some units of seriously ill children being treated at a nearby hospital. >> as a kid growing up in san francisco myself, i went through an eviction with my family. >> 588 was a project close to reverend von's heart. >> isn't it beautiful? the bathroom is bigger than the chinatown sro. >> he says it literally gave him a new lease on life. >> it changed my life. >> he says he pays about $1500
8:40 am
a month for his two bedroom place here. in the tenderloin, he was paying $1200 for a one bedroom. and he says he is now studying computer science and hopes to start his own family some day and buy his own home. in san francisco, ktvu fox 2 news. well, the concern about sharks near the shoreline is causing officials at one popular southern california beach to add a shark warning system. it is going to be tested along the coastline in orange county. and in particular, the area of corona delmar beach in the new port beach area. the warning system features buoys with sonar detection equipment. they can detect sharks and also measure their size. the price tag for this pilot program is $2 million. but supporters say the expense is trivial compared to all of the lives that potentially could be saved, and the injuries that could be prevented. all right. time now is 8:40 on the clock. fighting lung cancer and the stigma, up next, we will have more on a women's promise to

8:45 am
than this little nagging pain that was kind of shooting across my chest every once in a while. so i went and had my own full body scan. >> and what did that scan say? >> lung cancer. >> what was your prognosis. >> my prognosis was 2% of the stage of lung cancer in that area. >> lung cans sert leading cancer killer in both men and women in the u.s. it is the most common cancer worldwide. accounting for 1.8 million new cases. the five-year survival rate is just 17.7%. and more than half of people diagnosed with lung cancer die within the first year. but as she faced her own uncertain outcome, she says there was one question that she needed answered. >> why the survival rate was so low. the survival rate for the top three cancers, breast, colon,
8:46 am
and prostate, are up in the high 80s and 90s. and i wanted to know why lung cancer, which is bigger than breast, colon and prostate, all combined, kills more women than breast cancer. >> why it was getting so little attention. >> and what did you find? >> i found a huge injustice around the cancer. and that is called stigma. you know, people have a feeling that you brought it on yourself. >> they blame people with lung cancer for smoking. >> pactly. >> so as she prepared to wage the battle for her life, she also did something else. >> i made myself a promise when i was in the barko lounger and hanging the bags for the chemotherapy and all of those things and i said that if i promise that if i get out of this nut hole and wake up on the other side, that i would do something to change the survival rate of lung cancer. >> what he what she is doing is

8:49 am
chronically managed lung cancer by 2023. >> as for bonnie, the struggle also continues. >> i have one vocal chord. i have some nodules on my right lung that they're following right now so i'm back to getting scans again on a regular basis. >> she does it now with her two daughters at her side at the foundation, and she knows it is not lung cancer that defines her, it is what she has done in spite of it. >> it has made me a whole person. i put my head on my pillow at night, and i know if i, you know, got hit by a train tomorrow, and left this world, that i did absolutely everything i could do to be an authentic human being. >> well, the ninth annual your next step is the cure event, is planned for tomorrow at lake merced in san francisco, and that event is going to raise much-needed funds for patient services and clinical research projects. you can walk, jog, or run, as an individual or as a team.

9:08 am
advisor steve bannon has indicated that he is out. and conservative commentator ann coulter announced she will not be speaking at cal this week. and those opposing the conservative speakers say they are battling back hate speech. >> that means that we are winning. and that means they recognize that they are more and more isolated. more and more hated. and that we are not go can to let's them gloom together at berkeley and turn berkeley into another charlottesville. >> berkeley knows if they cancel the event, it is bad press for them. but if we cancel the event, we just look like a bunch of cowards. >> that is one of the reasons why organizers are vowing to go ahead. for those who will be speaking. because organizers missed certain reservation deadline, the speeches will be outdoors only on the plaza. and tuesday even, david horowitz set to speak. wednesday evening has been set aside for milo yiannopoulos. again the press conference is expected for later today. the ticketed events will be, again, they will be ticketed and monitored, they don't want to have a free for all out here
