( marty ) the scorching temperatures saturday led to a red flag warning for some parts of the bay area. that included the north bay where kron 4's ella sogomonian spent the day trying to beat the heat at the marin coutny fair. sot: ella sogomonian, @ellasogomonian//" at some point it was more than 90 degrees there was a heat advisory plus that high fire danger warning... regardless of the scorching temperatures a lot of people came out for the first day of the fair."it can be liberating not to have to reach for a jacket in the bay area...marin county fair goers reveled under the sun for the kick off of the five day festival in san rafael saturday.sot: bryan gildner, enjoying the fair // "it's great to be out without a jacket, of course there's always the concern with fire, last year was obviously really devastating but with us being here we can sort of enjoy the good weather and put money back into the economy like we need."but the hottest day of the week can be as
7:19 am
dangerous as it may be fun.a heat advisory was in effect until about 8 o clock saturday. when it gets this hot it can be risky especially for children and seniors. the national weather service recommends to check up on them if they dont have ac at home, dont leave kids or pets in a car, and if outdoors like here at the fair limit strenuous activity and stay hydrated! this guy who'd worked for hours in the heat came prepared with a refillable bottle of water at his side at all times.sot: luke working in the heat// "heat exhaustion is one you want to avoid definitely and you want to stay hydrated as well. it's funny how you can lose track of your hydration really quickly and it actually makes you think slower so you'll end up forgetting about it more and more and more until suddenly you're way too bad off."the north bay also had a high fire warning in the hills. ( marty )that was kron 4s ella sogomonian reporting. ( marty )starting today... san francisco's minimum wage will go up to 15-dollars an hour. city officials say it is the first major u.s. city to offer that wage. but restaurant owners aren't happy about it. the idea was to raise wages a step at a time so that employers have time to prepare for the increase. restaurant owner deanna sison says it's nearly impossible to deal with a new

expense since san francisco is already a very expensive city. they say.. it's not just the minimum wage, but everything seems to be going up... ( marty ) restaurant owners say.. the city should focus on affordable housing and making transportation more accessible.

7:21 am
from the north bay to san francisco. there could be even more increases on the horizon. because the golden gate bridge district is facing a nearly 4- million dollar deficit this fiscal year and tolls are the main source of revenue for the district.

( marty ) much like san francisco, sydney, australia is known around the world for its iconic landmarks and the famous views that come with them. and if you like spending time outside, it's a vacation that should be on your wish list. travel enthusiast dana rebmann joins us now. there are so many things to love about sydney. it's the type of place you can go back to again and again and find something new every time. but for the first-time visitor, there are some must- dos that stand out and keep you moving. i'm a big fan of bike tours when you touch down in new places. they help give you the lay of the land so to speak, and if you're coming off a long flight, they can help get through that first day jetlag. runs two fun city introduction style tours. one is a bit
9:48 am
longer than two hours, and another more comprehensive one that runs four hours. you'll get all those views, along with some fun tidbits about sydney's history. you don't need to be a hardcore cyclist to join in. i did the four-hour ride. it's long, but not intense. ferries are a huge part of daily life in sydney. but don't make the mistake of thinking they're just for commuters. they're great way to get out on the water and see sydney's amazing
9:49 am
harbor. the ferry system is elaborate, so you've got plenty of options when it comes to choosing a destination, but one of the most scenic rides takes you to with a bay beach on one side, a shop and restaurant lined main drag leads you to the main ocean beach. this is what you can expect on a fall sunday. quieter, on a weekday, when all those folks not on vacation have to go back to work. sydney has another sydney has another famous beach you may have heard of.. bondi (bond- eye) beach is a huge attraction for visitors. if you're the beach bum type, you could easily spend the day here, but an even better idea is to start at bondi and beach
9:50 am
hop along using the if you don't stop the walk is about two hours along the coast. but you will stop. over, and over, and over again. have your swim suit on underneath your shorts. there will be surf-fed pools, quiet coves, surfers to watch, and stretches of sand to hunt for beach treasure. have your camera fully charged. it is one of the most beautiful walks i've done anywhere in the world. the stretch from bondi to coogee is a bit under four miles long, but you can leave the trail at any point if you get tired or have had enough. there will be stairs from time to time, but you're not in any rush, and the views give you plenty of excuses to stop and catch your breath. there are also seaside cafes and restaurants along the way, so
9:51 am
it's really hard to go wrong with this one. this isn't a tourist attraction. it's a well-used and loved by locals, and visitors in the know. let's check out the sydney opera house.. and get a few more steps in.. 1,332 stairs to be exact.. by climbing the sydney harbour bridge. yes, climbing the bridge. i know. first reaction might be that i am crazy. that's fair, but hear me out. it's an amazingly gentle, and entertaining climb, as opposed to the scary experience many people might automatically fear. all climbers wear a special jumpsuit so they blend in with the bridge, and a harness with cable that essentially clips you onto the bridge from the moment you
9:52 am
step out on the span, to the moment you're back on solid ground. the views are what make most folks gather up the courage to make the but you also wear headsets, you can hear your guide loud and clear along the way sharing stories about how the bridge was built. if climbing the bridge is a bit more of an adrenaline rush than you're looking for on vacation, you can climb the 200 stairs

( marty ) oh baby! that's what a texas hospital is saying after busy couple of days in the maternity ward. officials at the baylor medical center may need to add more cribs to accommodate their baby boom. since tuesday, 48 babies have been born in less than two days. that's an average of more than one baby an hour. that beats a record set just a few days ago at a hospital in dallas where 42 babies were born in 48 hours. there's
9:56 am
even a lively discussion about the recent baby boom. ( marty ) state records show most babies are born during july, august and september. the hospital says they were well prepared...even bringing in pizza for their staff. ( marty ) check out this new observation deck that has people excited or freightened. the glass deck and its connecting bridge opened thursday in southern china. the views are stunning, but some people are having a hard time handling the height. the deck is six hundred and sixty-two feet high and suspended over a valley and a massive water fall. the skywalk is considered to be the world's biggest and highest glass construction. ( marty ) one man may have broken the world record for holding a plank yoga position. george hood planked for ten hours and ten minutes friday in chicago.
9:57 am
planking is where you hold up your body using just your elbows and feet. it develops core strength. it needs to be verified, but hood reportedly beat the old record by two hours. it's all for a good cause. he was raising money to help chicago children who have been exposed to violence adlib seven day. thats kron 4 news weekend for this saturday morning... i'm marty gonzalez. from all of us thanks for watching. join us for kron4 news weekend tomorrow morning
