i was -- i was sad. last august raymond's friend chiante, jr., with plans to join the marines was shott and kille while walking a female friend home late one night. raymond heard whispers from some who wanted to take matters into their own hands and not leave just toys the police. >> that shocked me because that's not how i felt chiante. i didn't see him rolling with that kind of crowd who were trying to put themselves above the law because that's not how he was. >> raymond decided a much more fitting response to such a dark act was to shine a light, literally. >> you see, while revisiting the spot, raymond noticed just how dark it was at night. he contacted the city to see what he could do about it. a list of rules followed about making measurements and taking photographs and collecting signatures. all of which raymond spent weeks
following. >> it was more than just, you know, doing something. it was helping communities and people. >> didn't know they were going to do all of this. >> reporter: raymond's petition asked for lights to be added to a single pole near the crime scene. the city responded, though, with much, much more. >> last week, lighting improvements were completed up and down the block. this admittedly shy 16-year-old had gotten the attention of his city leaders and earned their respect in the process. >> i think what a positive role model this kid is for the community, for his friends. this -- this young man chose to take a different course of action, to do better for the community, to make the community safer. >> raymond says he never expected his plan to work so well. so he's happy it did. his was just a simple hope that

and it's north of san francisco where you've seen the moderate rain which has been setting up this afternoon into parts of the north bay and spilling closer to the east bay hills there with oakland and not so much around san jose and from pacifica and half moon bay and it's not just rain and obviously the wind is one part of the story and a chance of some thunderstorms, too, as the cold front sweeps through from about 8:00 tonight to midnight. our rain totals again looking at about a third of the totals we saw last night. however, a lot of us with the rain and the half inch to an inch and a half could come down in four hours' time and that's the reason we do have the flash flood watch from 6:00 to 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning and here we go, we'll pinpoint the heaviest rain from 8:00 to right around san francisco to about 11:00 and quickly moving into the bay area and very likely some strong winds pushing the front into the south bay by 11:00 and by tomorrow morning still scattered showers and
that's going to help us shut down the showers and it's going to stay blustery through the afternoon. wind speeds increasing at their highest right around 10:00 as the cold front continues to pass through the bay area and the wind changed directions and staying breezy out of the northwest as we move in through the afternoon which helps to bring in cooler air. upper 50s and low 60s in the bay area and decreasing showers and where the showers started to decrease and north bay tomorrow temperatures and still the right chance around napa around the north bay and east bay hills a light chance of thunder. >> you'll notice it trends higher except in the north bay you'll see daily chances of rain there and and they'll tread lower closing in on 70 degree, but here is why heavy rain will come through later this week and we'll see the connection we've been referring to and the river
set up as we get toward wednesday and thursday and moisture pulled into the late week storm will super size the rainfall totals as we get into thursday and friday and the long-range forecast all of the way into next weekend and it keeps the rain going especially late saturday into sunday as we show you the systems kind of stacked up across the pacific. a pretty impressive one that will impact into tomorrow morning and here we go, two, three and four right across the pacific. the system mainly in the north bay and the system to watch will be later this week into friday and two inches of rain and next weekend it's ooshth one to two inches of rain falling and those storms here. >> i'm getting out of town. thanks very much. coming up, the school of rock is open. >> we salute you. we'll take you inside the classroom to show you the historical opportunity it will give students.
