people in the bay and across the country. they are suspects in the college admissions scandal that are really rocking universities across the country. these are the six bay area parents that are expected to go before a judge in just hours. prosecutors say the scam involved millions of dollars in bribes to athletic coaches and others to get their kids into prestigious schools. the california schools involved, stanford, uc berkeley, usc and ucla. let's go live now to boston, and jeff sapperstone from our sister station there. jeff, parents from across the nation will be in court today. what do you think we can expect? >> reporter: yes, we're about three hours away from the first set of arraignments here. again, more than a dozen parents will be in court today. this is one of the biggest days in this case so far. they'll be appearing here in boston federal court. three sets of arainments, the first here at noon eastern time, then at 2:00 and 4:00. kind of a rolling start here this morning because there are so many people appearing. now we know that the two
actresses charged in this case, those two parents will not be here today. they'll be here next week, but many other parents, including many as you said from the bay area and the west coast will be here today, again, they've been charged, facing serious counts in this case. >> jeff, let's talk a little bit about boston, so people understand that, why the defendants are out east in this case. >> reporter: this is kind of interesting. the feds were actually conducting another investigation, something very separate from this case, when they came across a defendant in that case, who tipped them off about this, so that led them to a ring leader here in this case. they got to the ring leader and got that ring leader in this case to cooperate, and that created all of these charges, and the arrests in this case. so really interesting. that first case not related to this case in any way, but it was here in boston. >> and speaking of that, relations here like california, massachusetts, and new england area are home to several prestigious schools. any movement that you're noticing out there to stop this
from happening again or happening there? >> reporter: i think the schools are taking notice here for sure. the schools were not charged in this case. that's an important note here. the message from prosecutors is that this will not be tolerated. they're sending that message to parents, to coaches, teachers, whomever else could be wramd pp up in this case. >> a lot of schools checked their own admissions school standards as well. jeff thanks for joining us. kris sanchez will continue our coverage of the story at 6:30. she'll talk about these people right here, the parents from the bay area who are also due in court in boston today. 6:04. president trump heads to florida today after a victory rally in the midwest. it is his first since attorney general's memo on the mueller report was released. tracie pots is live on capitol hill with more and calls on one of the president's toughest critics to resign. >> exactly, adam schiff.

we're looking over here the big problem the one problem is the traffic alert out of castro valley, following the jam blocking most of interstate 238. we'll give you the progress if chp gives us an update in the next few. a very happy friday to you. stocks are on the rise, as we get good news about the trade talks with china. a new study says that netflix is the fastest growing brand in the world. lyft we've got it up on our board because it starts trading today, $72 a share is your opening price. there's been no change yet because it hasn't started trading, but it is at the top end of the trade range we were expecting. look for this to happen around 9:00 a.m. our time. it won't start trading right when the nasdaq opens at 6:30. i'm predicting say about 9:00 a.m., but it's all good news for the san francisco company, as it offers its stock for the first time. and this should kick off a string of ipos, including uber,
pinterest and others. lyft came a long way starting with an idea is by john zimmer to coordinate rides for college kids, not unlike the bulletin board i used when i was a kid in college. he turned that company as of this morning into something worth more than $20 billion. tim sloan is out as wells fargo ceo. his resignation came very suddenly. wells fargo of course suffered through scandal after scandal leading a member of congress to here's st mu pf testifying. he was there at the time when the bank needed somebody untainted with the problems. the bank will find a new ceo from outside the company. senator elizabeth warren calling for a criminal investigation into sloan and jail time if he's found guilty.
on a happier note, congratulations to the entrepreneurs and businesspeople in the east bay after last night's east bay innovation awards, which they were kind enough to ask me to emcee at the fabulous fox theater in oakland last night. i don't think there's a pretty theater in all the bay area. >> a prettier. right? >> yes, it's a beautiful one. 6:16. okay, so look, if you're planning to do some online shopping in the coming days, be aware, because the state's new tax law is set to take effect monday. >> so get clickin'. "today in the bay's" kira klapper joins us now a look at what this means for all of us. >> i have a feeling, laura and marcus, there are going to be online shopping while i do this report. >> who told you? >> california will start requiring out of state sellers to collect use taxes on april 1st, as marcus and laura just said, that starts on monday. we have three more days to get tax-free shopping done with out of state companies. to break it down, online
retailers who make more than 200 transactions or $100,000 will have to meet the new requirements. the state is estimating that nearly 27,000 companies will register, and that means you'll be paying a little bit more for certain items. you'll be paying tax. state lawmakers say the new law is an attempt to even out the playing field. small businesses in california have always had to collect taxes but they've been competing with online retailers that don't. california is the latest state across the country to change the online sales tax laws. 30 other states have already put similar regulations into place. these changes all come after the supreme court made a major ruling last year in a case called south dakota versus wayfair. justices ruled that states could require online retailers to collect sales tax even if they don't have a physical presence in the state. that's the big change. they don't have to have a brick and mortar in california in order to charge sales tax,
starting monday. good news for our state. it's estimated that california will earn $787 million in additional revenue in just the first two years because of the new online sales tax. >> did they say where the money is going to go? >> no. so that will be interesting. >> right. exactly. >> we hope it will go toward things that our state needs. >> no kidding. >> which is debatable, depending who you ask. >> this is true. >> thanks so much. >> get to shopping. >> thanks, kira. all right, so if shopping makes you happy, so will this weekend's weather. i don't know, the weather is so nice, you might want to be outside instead of shopping online. >> shopping on your phone while enjoying time outside and we're going to see better travel conditions for you this morning, as we get a live look outside, in walnut creek, everyone heading out the door, going to work, or school, and it's going to be a nice one. you do want to grab a jacket, because it starts out with some mid-40s, later on today, we'll be taking the jackets off, as our temperatures warm up into the low 60s by early afternoon, and the pollen count we already
know this, we've seen it coating the cars, a lot of tree pollen, and grass pollen is high, too. so if you're about to head out, make sure you grab the allergy medication. i kind of made the mistake and left it at home today. so our temperatures will be in the low 60s. a great day to get outside, go for a nice long walk especially by this afternoon, as our temperatures reach into the mid-60s inland and the rain is all out of here. we're still seeing some spotty showers just to our north, if you'll be traveling, you'll encounter some of that rain but it stays mostly out of the bay area, and our high pressure comes in, it brings us some dry conditions, but by sunday, that starts to move on. it opens up the door once again for some more clouds, and some rain to move in by early next week. so we will have a dry weekend, but next week, all bets are off as we start to see the rain returning, and it could bring us quite a bit of rain, as we see several storm systems moving in. some initial estimates on how much rain we could see next week
over an inch in parts of the north bay, and areas to the south and east could see close to an inch of rain, most of us getting about a half inch or less. and we're looking at more soggy weather for tuesday into thursday, so you do want to make sure you get outside and enjoy saturday and sunday, with our high temperatures reaching into the low 70s in the inland valleys. mike, you've been tracking one still major problem in the east bay. >> that's right, and the rest of the bay looks great. so we'll show everybody their drive. you can see from the south bay all the way up into the city, throughout the east bay, looks just fine, calling out castro valley right there. that's where the jam is, the major problem is on the cast e valley "y" and north 238. the traffic alert continues with the jam from crow canyon to north 238 with one lane open. we have a few photos from the scene. chp has been out there for a while. cal trans department of transportation, they got to clear up this big rig there, the tanker, also there's a fuel spill and some hydraulic fluid on the roadway.
it's a hazmat situation and that's what's taken a while to clear these lanes. as you see from this picture also, only your far left lane is open so that is the problem, getting through the area above. you see the interchange there, that's again north 238, so big rigs are approved for west 580 but as we get back out to the traffic maps, the jam is before you get there. the big rig is getting to use 580 doesn't help. the folks here getting off at redwood road or drove of grove way, which is the continuation of crow canyon road to get to "a" street flooded with traffic as well, lots of signals and lots of traffic headed through downtown hayward, so be advised if that is your destination, if that's where you work, we have problems for local traffic. meanwhile, the rest of the bay getting through contra costa county, you're looking really good. the bay bridge toll plaza has the metering lights on at the standard time. one of your alternates to get around that big jam in castro valley is to take the b.a.r.t. lines. there are no delays for the 50 trains running throughout the system. back to you. >> all right, thank you very much. 6:21 right now. next and new, a big update overnight on this month's plane

nasa may have the job for you. you could get paid $19,000 for lying in bed 24 hours a day. but you have to do it nonstop for two months, that's everything, eating, bathing, you maim it. and all 24 participants will be studied in the same room. nasa is doing the research as part of a study on weightlessness. they say that bedrest mimics some weightless conditions. i've been on bedrest and everybody thinks it would be great. it's tough. >> yes. >> it's tough mentally. >> i could imagine. >> got to be strong. >> do everything in the bed, everything. all right, 6:26 right now. still ahead this morning, pay up. all new for you this morning, chicago's message to jussie smo smollett, how much money they want him to pay for the investigation. breaking news the catholic church and the sex abuse scandal. the changes the pope announced overnight. and breaking locally. we just learned in the past few minutes the late night shooting

classes are going on today here in fremont. the teachers are asking the district for a 4% raise for the 2018-2019 school year, a cost of living adjustment they say they need in order to afford to live in the super expensive bay area. the district has countered with a 0.71% raise, according to "the mercury news." the district tells the newspaper they would have to make draconian cuts of $28 million in order to meet the teacher's demand of 4% and they also blame the state for underfunding schools. since both sides are at an impasse, the contract negotiations move into a fact-finding phase. next week there will be a neutral arbitrator, he'll examine both sides' arguments and report back his findings. fremont teachers aren't the first ones to find themselves at an impasse. a month ago, when teachers in oakland went on strike for about a week in order to get their district to agree to their demands. reporting live here in fremont, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> we'll be watching for the details, bob, thanks.
another health warning for you this morning, it happened again, officials warning people about a possible measles exposure at a popular east bay restaurant. if you ate at sauced bash key and spirits in livermore, this is for you. someone with me sayles ate there as well. the health department wants to hear from people who were at that restaurant between 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on saturday. they're at high risk of infection. we've been telling you this week about measles exposure after an international traveler with the virus visited the bay area and they stopped at 20 different restaurants and stores in the south bay between the 13th and the 23rd. >> 6:26. a horse track near los angeles resumes racing today. it comes after they were suspended in definitely earlier this month. 22 horses died at the santa anita racetrack. today's races come with a new restriction. one of them approves new rules on certain medications given to
animals. another bans use of whips except during races where safety needs to be ensured. that rule won't take effect immediately. >> it is 6:46 right now. the man spear-heading a probable name change for a north bay school district will reportedly leave his position before any new name takes effect. leaders of the dixie school district in marin will make their final decision on changing the name. according to the "marin ij" the district superintendent yamashiro announced plans to leave june 30th. he gives no reason for why he's stepping down or where he may be going. last night the president made his first major public appearance since the end of the mueller investigation. >> scott mcgrew, the president claims complete vindication. >> this though he is not to our knowledge seen the actual full report, nor have we. what we have seen is a report on the report. a four-page summary by attorney general william barr. here is the president in michigan last night.
>> total exoneration, complete vindication. you know, it's interesting. robert mueller was a god to the democrats, was a god to them, until he said there was no collusion. they don't like him so much right now. >> now there is absolutely no question, the barr report was good news for the president, saying mueller had found no evidence the president colluded with russia. the president when claiming no collusion, was being absolutely honest, but there trump took it too far in that sound bite you just saw when it comes to obstruction. the report does not exonerate him. the report literally says in print, it doesn't exonerate him. we continue to hear good news about the progress with china. video here of the u.s. treasury secretary and the u.s. trade representative meeting with the chinese vice premier in beijing. it appears they're close to an agreement to the point they're
starting to make sure the two texts, one in chinese, the other in english, match up exactly. today was supposed to be the last day great britain belonged to the european union, it's brexit day, but the country has not worked out a trade deal, so the eu granted an extension. we have live pictures in london today, where they are still arguing about what to do. nbc has announced the date of the first democratic presidential debate. it will be june 26th and 27th. let me anticipate your emails. the reason we're not running a republican debate is because as of right now, there's only one republican candidate. we're following everything that's going on, on twitter. follow us, find me @scottmcgrew. would we ever find you here, airbnb at the mushroom dome in aptos. airbnb listed it as the most popular all-time stay with the highest number of reservations.
airbnb celebrating hits 500 millionth booking since launching in 2008. probably not just there, but overall. the mushroom cabin a 1,000 square food geodome. visitors say it feels like a little treehouse in the woods. >> it's pretty cool. >> yes, i've seen it online but never stayed there. maybe a little more room. >> you have to wait a long time to get a booking there. they were saying like maybe it's booked up past september. probably even more so now. >> i guess. a little more popular. >> wherever you are in the bay area it's going to be a nice weekend. >> yes, we'll enjoy the sunshine and highs in the 70s in the inland areas. what are you going to do? we are going to start out though with a mixed bag of weather. that's my live camera in san rafael. you can barely see anything, if you kind of look closely, you can see some headlights. that's highway 101 and those are the drivers headed southbound into san francisco. so really some problems for some drivers.
this is a look now in fremont. we've also seen some patchy fog in parts of the tri-valley. clearing up for the east bay, and then fremont our temperatures start out at about 46 degrees, sunshine, warms us up, everything will clear out, and our highs reach into the 60s today. our seven-day forecast is already up at the bottom of the screen, as we check out our high temperatures today. morgan hill expect a high of 65 degrees. 67 in concord, and napa today 65 degrees, and we are all clear in terms of those storm systems. they've moved off toward the east, and we're also seeing some rain through the north. if you'll be traveling across far northern california you will encounter some of that rain. it stays to the north of us, as high pressure moves in, it keeps the rain away from the bay area. sunday the high pressure quickly slides off to the east. it opens up the storm door once again so next week we are going to see more rain moving in, off and on, especially starting on tuesday, continuing through the end of the week.
some initial estimates on how much additional rain we may see, it looks like next week we could get over an inch, possibly close to two inches in parts of the north bay, other areas about a half inch to an inch of rain, so still some pretty good soakings in our forecast going into next week. enjoy the weekend. it's going to be dry and warm, sunny skies inland, reaching into the low 70s. san francisco looking at highs in the mid to upper 60s, and yes, it cools down once again next week, as that rain returns. mike, you're tracking a few things to slow you down. >> most of the bay shows a great drive but we're seeing more spots to watch. south bay not the issue. just a mild build, peninsula clear. over in castro valley where the traffic alert continues to time traffic out of castro valley and coming off of the dublin grade slowing toward northbound 238. now our photographer ethan just got on scene, got live pictures, taking the first look here. he's safely on the shoulder. this is the tanker truck, where there's a fuel spill. hydraulic fluid spilled out and
one lane to get past this scene. that's a big problem, as folks come out of castro valley again, back to our regular maps, you're showing traffic jammed up all the way off of the dublin grade, past crow canyon road, where folks are bailing down toward redwood road and "a" street toward the nimitz freeway. west highway 4 slows through pay point, crash on the shoulder for chicago highway and also fog registering up in the north bay and even though traffic flow is flight, we can't show you anything beyond the trees in front of our camera. we can kind of make out a few headlights that will be an issue as you travel through the north bay. no delays for mass transit and b.a.r.t. will help you out, if you're trying to get from the tri-valley past the scene of that traffic alert again at the castro valley "y." back to you. >> thanks, mike. 6:53. happening now, tragedy at the grand canyon. a tourist from hong kong died when he fell a thousand pete into a ravine.
