tuesday, may 15th, "today in the bay." good morning, everybody. thank you very much for joining us. i'm jon kelley. >> and i'm laura garcia-cannon. and we begin with developing news. crime scene tape blocking an east bay neighborhood. a body has been discovered in castro valley and what could be the city's first homicide of the year. "today in the bay's" christie smith live where deputies have been on the scene for 12 hours. good morning. >> good morning to you. this could be castro valley's first homicide of the year. i'll step aside so you can see what is going on here this morning. a dead body found at a home on the 4300 block of omega avenue. but the circumstances are still a mystery this morning. but an entire portion of the block is behind crime scene tape this morning. so neighbors will be waking up to quite a scene. i spoke with one deputy with the alameda county sheriff's department this morning who
tells me this investigation started about 12 hours ago at 6:00 p.m. they wouldn't say exactly what brought them here but arrived and found a victim down. they're not saying if this is a male or female or if this started with a disturbance call, shots fired, that sort of thing. but they've got at least eight units here from the alameda county sheriff's department plus the mobile command center and homicide detectives also crime lab technicians here taking many pictures of the lawn. and one particular home, and they say they have quite a ways to go. i do have a call into a sheriff spokesperson this morning, and as soon as i hear from him, i'll let you know what he had to say. reporting live in castro valley, "today in the bay." the countdown continues this morning for facebook's initial public offering. and that expected to hit on friday. and already market pressures pushing that price upwards. we have team coverage this morning. marla tellez in menlo park outside facebook headquarters. and scott mcgrew in the newsroom with more details on facebook's
plan. good morning, scott. >> facebook, jon, trying to take the temperature of investors to set the right priced ipo and thinks it can push the price up a bit. the company filed financial papers increasing the range at which it will offer shares by about $4. to between $34 and $38. clearly facebook thinks demand is there. and an exact price will be set right before the trading day on friday if everything goes to plan. now chances are, you won't be getting it at $34. that's because that's the price set for insiders and bankers. they're counting on you to offer more money to buy the shares from them on the open market, but is the enthusiasm there? for that, let's go to marla tellez. good morning. >> reporter: scott, good morning. yeah, it's amazing, even at 4:00 in the morning, people are excited about facebook. bottom line, they are telling me that it has staying power and it is worth investing in. now, will they actually buy in when push comes to shove, here's what we found.
okay. we don't have that sound for you. but i can tell you one woman tells me that she says maybe, maybe she'd buy into it. another guy says he's not one to invest, so he's not for it. another guy says, absolutely, he will put his money on it. now, the question is, will such popularity with facebook translate into a popular and worthy investment? soon we shall find out when facebook ipos this friday as scott mentioned, the new public price stock range between $34 and $38 a share. live in menlo park, marla tellez, "today in the bay." this should be the ride to watch. and throughout the week, we are teaming up with our colleagues at cnbc to cover facebook and that ipo up and down across the board. scott mcgrew among our team of five reporters covering the story and how it will impact everything right here in the bay area. 6:03, new this morning, british prosecutors just anou
announcing they will charge rebecca brooks. brooks used to run news of the world, accused of trying to obstruct the police investigation by hiding computers and documents. five others are being charged with her, including her husband. 20,000 teachers across california receiving layoff notices in march. and this morning, they're learning if they will, in fact, lose their jobs. today's the day school districts had to notify ploys if their jobs are being eliminated. in san francisco alone, more than 200 teachers were given the pink slips. in san jose, more than 140. the good news here, many districts say the majority of layoff notices will be rescinded. the landscape will be changing. city council members voted to approve the construction at the site of a now defunct shell gas station at the corner. the building will house three stories of offices and retail space. and a quick reminder, you
may want to think twice before you light up in mountain view. starting today, smokers being banned at outdoor public areas including outside dining and parks and you're not allowed to light up within 25 feet of smoke-free areas. now, if cut, violators face a $50 fine. business owners also responsible for educating its employees on this ban. 6:05, california's high-speed rail project will start moving in the state legislature. the hearing comes after the los angeles times reported the state would have to spend $3.5 million per day for the first phase of the project alone in order to qualify for federal funding. the project is expected to cost nearly $70 billion and be complete in 2029. it is 6:05 right now. and i don't want to give away all of her tricks, but the weather is so good, christina loren doing a little dance for us. >> you could never give away all my tricks, jon kelley.
taking a live look. looks like someone pained the s painted the sky. a beautiful look coming over the bay area. gorgeous conditions. let's get to the temperature map. and i would like to keep that up longer. 51 degrees in san mateo, 51 in san francisco. comfortable 52 degrees in sunnyvale. as we head throughout the morning hours, we have some clouds hanging out bay side and at the coast. and that'll be the temperatures bay side. and then as we head through the next few days, we swing you right back down. we've got kind of a roller coaster. the best way to describe your future temperatures is on that seven-day forecast. stay tuned for that as we head through the next few minutes. we'll have that ready to go. 70 degrees at noon inland, 65 by the bay, and 60 degrees at the coast. now, with those low clouds settling in, our highway man got a lot busier. how's it looking out there, mike? >> it got a lot busier.
you're right. better here, 680, i was very concerned about this accident car reported disabled first and then accident. i thought a car had hit it and spun it around. no major injuries and, in fact, just cleared from the incident report. but this is not cleared. highway 4, your standard tuesday build coming through antioch looks pretty severe, but folks local to the area know this is your standard flow and bay point to concord, okay as far as that flow. not the usual flow here in through livermore, north flynn road in the westbound commute direction. that's where there's a disabled semitruck in your second and maybe third lane. your two middle lanes may be blocked. a 14-minute travel time from the altamont pass, that means for the most part, anyone north of west flynn road bearing benefit off the disabled vehicle. holding things nicer over at the dublin interchange. we'll track this as well, guys, back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. a lot of people waiting and holding their breath for the governor jerry brown's revised budget. now the governor says the state
is nearly $16 billion in debt and cuts do need to be made. the governor's plan would reduce the following child care for mothers trying to get off welfare, in-home support for the needy and health care for the poor. and more cuts to schools and the your system. and looks like kind of a grim outlook for state workers. brown wants state employees to work four-day weeks. not sure that's a bad thing. also wants to make sure huge cuts are made to medicare and he is pushing in november a initiative for temporary tax increases. >> is that if we don't approve the temporary tax increases in november, the cuts will get a lot worse. schools could be forced to close up to 15 days per year. >> now back in january, brown estimated the budget shortfall would be $9 billion. that's since ballooned up to since we told you $6 million. 6:08, california casinos are
trying to get state lawmakers to get all in for internet poker. supporters say legalizing poker online will put hundreds of millions of dollars into the state's pod. a co-author of the bill to try to make it happen. several other states looking at legalizing similar bills, but california is seen as the jackpot for online poker. casinos estimate about 2 million californians play online. >> very popular sport so to say. it's 6:09 right now. here's a question, who wants used stuff from guys running around in the dirt and grass? we'll see what the giants are putting up for sale next. and good morning, i'm bob redell. we'll take you for a live ride on the portion of stage 3 of the amgen tour of california bike race taking off this morning. more coming up. >> go, bob, go. >> he's got cards in his tires?

"today in the bay's" bob redell who happens to be a world class cyclist himself is live in san jose this morning where crews are already busy setting up for stage three. how are you feeling? >> reporter: we actually --
>> get him oxygen. >> reporter: from san jose -- what's that? oxygen? the first thing that goes is hearing. i'm learning that right now. we're actually on piedmont road, getting ready to approach calaveras, being the first climb of stage three. now, stage three's going to start at 11:15 this morning at the community center. we were just down, you can get a sense of these pictures we shot of what the set up is like. they have to start very early in the morning because i mentioned, they're expecting lots of fans and, of course, those bicyclists out there -- excuse me. for what will be stage three. now here's a map of stage 3. and the good thing, it's not going to affect your morning commute. between the hours of roughly 11:15, 4:00 in the afternoon. starting here in san jose heading into livermore for a final finish. but if you look at a map, it will be on some local roads. something you want to keep an eye out. three major climbs for riders.
i think this level straight away is enough as it is. the first climb up calaveras, then up mt. diablo. and then a final climb at patterson pass and of course, mt. diablo, one of the tallest peaks here in the bay area. >> stage three's interesting, mt. diablo, we've never raced over it before. it's in the middle of the stage, not at the finish, so it could really make a difference or maybe not. so an interesting day to see. >> reporter: and peter sagan won stage one in santa rosa on sunday, stage two yesterday, san francisco to santa cruz. and what was a remarkable about his finish yesterday is that 20 seconds before -- excuse me, 4 1/2 miles before the end of the race, he was involved in a wreck, shaved 20 seconds off his time. in spite of that deficit with the help of his teammates, he
was able to come back and take that stage. can he do it again today? we shall see. stage three taking off at 11:15, ending at 3:54 downtown livermore. the entire race ends sunday. it'll be eight stages in all. and when it's all said and done, 750 miles. reporting live here along the beautiful hills off piedmont in milpedas. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> bob, really quickly, where you at? hey, your wife just text me, wants to make sure your insurance policy's paid up. wow. >> oh. that's -- that's got to be the report of the year, right there. you saw it live. good for bob. 6:15 right now. lights back on at at&t park tonight. giants reach a significant landmark monday, though. 100th straight sellout at at&t park. the third straight win, the giants scored two runs in the
eighth. up 3-1, held on to win it 3-2. very nice, boys. very nice. >> buster posey getting down. now you can buy something new, something old, and something, i guess, used at at&t park. dirty stuff for sale. that's right, the giants now selling game-used merchandise. dirty game balls, broken bats, some are signed and some are merely stained. why is that not real attractive? the new from the clubhouse store is a big-time hit with fans. >> it has like a -- sportsy feel to it. >> you can see a certain spot on tv, on hdtv these days and it matches up to this helmet that you know was used in that specific game. >> i think whoever invented hdtv had that in mind. let's you see dirt on helmets. many of the used items more expensive than new ones because they're organic. the giants donating some of the
proceeds to charity on designated games. >> ever get that feeling you're being watched? at some bay area bars and restaurants you will be thanks to a new app. the app scene tap will launch in 25 bars and restaurants in san francisco on friday. hidden sensors will record the age range and male to female ratio at venues and broadcast that information to scene tap users so they can decide whether to go there. technology uses facial detection, not recognition. and among the bars taking part, the fluid ultra lounge and south pa barbecue. >> does that detect body shapes and things? a lightning surge turned out extremely lucky for a couple of homeless brothers. they were struck by lightning last month while they were out camping after losing their oakland home to foreclosure. now since their story aired and the public got involved here, donors contributing about $10,000 to the brothers' cause.
the older brother, alfred, is right now still looking for work as an accountant. his younger brother george developmentally disabled. this week, the brothers get to move into an east oakland home and act as temporary care takers. >> who knew getting hit by lightning could be lucky? >> feels so good. 6:18 right now. christina loren here to tell us about sun in the forecast. >> we've got a lot of sunshine and a really comfortable day. one of those days you don't get the heater or the ac. we'll take you live and show you. yeah, i can't see very much here. not sure why we went with this live shot. but as you can see low clouds obstructing your view completely here. and this is probably san francisco i would guess. 6:18 this morning. i have then confirmed from my director, that is san francisco. 6:18 now, my producer, sorry about that, ken. as you can see, we have completely clear conditions
there. it's nice and foggy at the coast. as a result that natural ac coming off the pacific. it's going to be a little while before your temperatures make it into the 60s along the peninsula and in san francisco. you'll have to wait for that. but we've got a comfortable day shaping up. 52 degrees in sunnyvale, we are headed toward the 70s and 80s in t the warmest cities across the bay. 9:00 a.m., you can see at that point getting a nice break inland, a little bit of cloud cover hugging the coast at that point. by noon, full-on sunshine across the greater bay area. good-looking day also got some good news in the pollen count department. much lower levels here. we're back in the moderate range as we were in the high range all weekend long. and yesterday, as well, perfect example of those pollen levels coming down. mike, much clearer this morning. we noticed that. high pressure moving in for today. and we see that onshore flow. it's going to keep things nice and cool for the first part of the day. but, hey, we're expecting temperatures to jump by about 5
to 10 degrees later on this afternoon. and more 80s on the way for you tomorrow. an even warmer wednesday shaping up. temperatures in the 80s in the south bay. 82 in livermore and 68 degrees in san francisco. next three days, we warm you up on wednesday, then swing you right back down on thursday and friday. temperatures kind of hovering around the upper 70s, low 80s as we head into this weekend. and then we're going to climb sunday. your best day for outdoor plans right by the water. let's check your drive with mike. well, we're looking at -- congestion is kind of clearing, but this is not. over to the dublin interchange because of all the folks blocking one lane, lane number three, doesn't matter which one because it's causing this backup coming into livermore down to north flynn road. all these folks coming in west of there. if you're getting on north livermore and west, you're good, good, good. we'll follow this because chp did not give us an estimate on when they can clear that. we hope it's quickly.
no further updates just yet. a smooth drive over toward the maze for highway 24. the caldecott tunnel, the east shore freeway and the berkeley curve. a live look will show you, no major slowing there, metering lights that just turned on. we see some flashing lights, though, an earlier incident may need some paperwork done. >> thank you very much. also tracking yahoo who says scott thompson will not get any golden parachute on the way out. scott mcgrew joins us with more. >> egood morning, it is officia. he was fired for cause, so no money. the paperwork gave us a look inside. he does leave with about $7 million, but that's different. that's what we call make good. it's money he was guaranteed ahead of time in order to leave paypal to take the yahoo job. its value he would've left behind in the form of unvested stock options. that's normal. no extra money for thompson other than a last paycheck. now, shares of yahoo gained
about 2% on monday, the first day that wall street could react to the news of yet another ceo fired. side note at a company-wide meeting the chairman of yahoo's board gave strong indication he'd like ross levinsohn to keep the job permanently. france showed no growth in the previous quarter, as close to a recession as you possibly can get. second largest economy in europe. francois hollande, what's the very first thing he's going to do? he's going to go see the german chancellor. political talks continue in greece. here you see politicians from the far right, far left walking into meetings, other video of them walking into meetings. this was on saturday. this was on sunday. they're walking into meetings and then on monday they walked into meetings. they have not been able to form a government. one outgoing official who lost in recent elections said he feared greek's problems would be
solved with rifles. he said a short time ago, what will prevail are armed gangs -- >> wow. >> whether or not that's exaggeration, who knows, but this is the talk coming out of europe these days. >> and something to watch. thank you. 6:23 right now. coming up, could be a rough day for jpmorgan chase's ceo. he'll be facing shareholders for the very first time since the company's $2 billion meltdown. we'll have a live report from washington coming up next. and sunrise coming over the bay area this morning. beautiful morning. spring-like temperatures, 6:23.
jpmorgan chase's ceo will face shareholders today. how risky hedging led to a $2 billion loss. why his job is probably secure despite that huge loss. good morning. >> laura, good morning, it's because some analysts say he's done such a good job leading the company thus far that the shareholders may not want to go through this crisis without him at the helm. today's the first time that jamie dimon meets his shareholders since announcing that $2 billion loss. he'll have to explain it, but he's also said and he said this publicly that the company is not in jeopardy. in fact, analysts say they'll probably make as much as $20 billion this year despite this loss. but what about his job? there's a proposal today to
split the chair and ceo both titles which he holds right now. meantime, elizabeth warren who set up the consumer financial protection bureau thinks he should step down from the board of the new york federal reserve. president obama on "the view" talking about the company's financial future. they lost 12% of their value in the past five days, but the president says at least this time, laura, taxpayers aren't left holding the bag. >> it's amazing to see those numbers. thank you very much, tracie. 6:27 right now. i think we're going to go to break. yes, we're going right to break. still to come on "today in the bay," ross mirkarimi's fight to keep his job. what could be used against him in a suspension hearing. we'll have that coming up. police have been at a house where someone found a body about 12 hours ago. we'll have the latest in a live report. ♪

"today in the bay's" christie smith live where the accident's happening and she can tell us what's happening so far. >> we know there was a body found in a home and investigators this morning are treating this as a homicide. the entire street is blocked off on omega avenue. i just spoke with a neighbor who tells me an mom and adult son live in the home and the last she knew the mom was on vacation for a couple of days. she said she had seen the son coming and going and three cars parked near the home she hadn't seen before. she said around 7:20 last night the street was already closed off when she got home. police came to question her and other neighbors. >> what did i see? have i noticed any cars? did i have any surveillance cameras around my property? >> and what do you think now that you see all this going on?
>> shocking, crazy, kind of disturbing. >> she says investigators told her that the victim did not live in the home. alameda sheriff detectives only saying this morning that this started around 6:00 last night and, again, this could be castro valley's first homicide of the year. as spokesperson for the sheriff's department is on the way here. as soon as i hear from him, i'll let you know what he had to say. reporting live in castro valley, christie smith, "today in the bay." and a warehouse gutted in southern california after an early-morning fire. you are looking live as the chopper flies over that scene in palmdale. firefighters trying to hose it down from up on the ladder and from the ground. this fire broke out at about 4:30 this morning. firefighters, yes, still on the scene trying to beat this one back. the good news so far, no word of any injuries. we'll, of course, keep you updated as more information
