(spencer)davis told me human rights day isn's so much a day of major events - because those events for civil and human rights should happen all the time.rather, she called the day a reminder of what needs to be done.live in studio, spencer blake, kron four news.

therapy...mental and physical. grant: 27:44: how is it to be able to zoom around here? charlotte: really great. why? because i can't really do things quite so well, as you may have seen on the camera, i've been doing it one-handed because sometimes this arm gets tired because i had a brain tumor a while back, and it affected my right side, it's curious how the brain works, the left side controls the right and the left side controls the right.officer fachner: she is quite the character, you can tell she loves that bike and it means a lot to her, and it means a lot to me to be able to get that back for her."adam luther, charlotte's dad: he could have written it off and moved on with his day but i just knew he was really caring, and then him saying he found it, i was like 'wow this is a special officer'. and thanks to him...charlotte has a new and improved view of officers. cate luther: she's a pretty great kid. she has a lot to offer. sometimes she'll say to me 'i don't understand, why do other kids have things what i have and they die but i haven't died?' and i say honestly i don't know but i know you have a lot to tell other people, she inspires a lot of people.

in southern california and strong high pressure above, the air quality continues to suffer in the bay area. it is another spare the air for tomorrow but we should see some improvement in air quality with a weak sea breeze near the coast by tomorrow afternoon. there is no rain to be found on our doppler radar but there are some signs that we could at least get a chance of some showers next week. on the satellite you can see the giant dome of high pressure along the west coast. it take a lot to break down a high pressure ridge like this once it developes. so other than chilly nights, temperatures will be unseasonably warm for at least the next 7 days and maybe longer. highs in southern california will be in the mid to upper 70s with red flag warnings for at least one more day. expect 60s and low 70s in the central valley and 60s and 70s near the coast. highs around the bay area will be mild with hazy sunshine and in the 60s to low 70s. we will
