we'll start with the south bay. there is the s.a.p. center, the disney on ice show. there will be smaller disney fans. a number of shows throughout the weekend so watch for foot traffic. the the freeway is moving fine right now as you would expect. the tri-valley no problem and no slowing out of the altamont through livermore and the tri-valley area. a smooth flow throughout the east bay corridor. highway 4, eastbound at the top of the screen shows slowing out of hercules over to concord but that's early morning traffic flow just getting started. no incidents reported. no construction crews either. we'll look to the east shore freeway. look at that coming down to the bay bridge. back to you. >> mike, have you heard about this. in a few hours officials will talk about a possible toll increase at the golden gate bridge. the district has to figure out a way to erase a $142 million
deficit over the next five years. one of the things the board of directors is looking at is making it more expensive to cross the iconic bridge but they haven't talked publicly about an amount. right now you probably know it cost $5 for fast track customers and $6 for everyone else. the golden gate bridge is the most expensive of all of the bridges in the bay area to cross. >> 4:41. a new idea this morning. we're going to figure out how much san francisco's twitter is worth. we can tell you it's in the billions. >> i think it starts with a "b." >> coming up in a live report. >> san francisco man accused of beating his dog cleared in a court of law but now he is in a new fight to get his dog back. why his lawyer says she being discriminated against. >> we'll get new insight into the disappearance of jonbenet ramsey, including why prosecutors never pressed charges against the young girl's parents.

brussels this morning, says trust needs to be rebuilt between the u.s. and europe following a debate among representatives of the european council. she says the fact that trust needed to be rebuilt implies trust has been severely shaken. earlier this week a german magazine published leaks from snowden showing the nsa may have monitored merkel's phone calls which the white house denies. >> 4:46. we're getting a better idea what's going to happen when san francisco's twitter's ipo next month. also the rest of the news before the bell. good morning. >> good morning to you. twitter road show today when they meet across the country trying to gain support going into its initial public offering. executives will meet on wall street including morgan sacks and jpmorgan. the twitter ipo is expected to

in a plastic bag, the dog jumped out right into traffic and was scooped up before being hit by a car. he says that security guard thought that was abuse and thought that berrian was scolding the dog for running off. >> the key thing here is i think he was stereotyped plxt berrian as you see he had aubrey in a plastic bag but let's be honest. it's not a purse, it's not a fancy designer bag. and so if you see a dog in a plastic bag, that caused people to judge him. >> a spokeswoman for the public defender's office says attorneys are looking into how to get aubrey back. >> it's 4:51. the sharks suffer their first regulation loss of the season and it's a painful one. >> plus we'll tell you about the arizona teenager doing something nobody in scottsdale has done in nearly 40 years. mcquaid

the game and warm-ups but does not remember any of the game itself or the hit or even being carried off that ice. he does, however, remember being in the ambulance afterwards. boyle did practice yesterday so that's good news, she progressing but there is no word on exactly when he will be back, still painful to watch. >> speaking of the sharks the team suffered a tough loss in boston last night. all tied up until the final second when the bruins scored with just .8 second left. san jose could not respond. sharks lose 2-1, their first loss in regulation for the season. that's okay. got it out of the system. >> it's a long season, it's more important to be winning toward the end right before the playoffs and into the stanley cup. positive take. >> 4:55. mike inouye is here. he knows a lot about traffic. >> i do. after jon and i surf the

business she bought at 16, way to go. the previous owner led the effort to overturn the ban on ice cream trucks and sydney received the city's first license. >> she is going to make a lot of money there. >> that's a great place to do it. hearing the ice cream truck music gets you excited. >> i'll take a scoop of mint. >> i'll get you two. san jose telling high schoolers their car wash fundraiser has to stop. why it's dangerous. >> why the b.a.r.t. contract could bring b.a.r.t. riders relief literally. why the contract fight shut down some station bathrooms.
