danger they have the right to go in anywhere at any time. >> does the chief explain at all why they don't want to release it. they say they don't have to, but did he say why they don't want to release it? >> because they didn't want to give out the identity of the caller, but that would usually be redacted anyway and unavailable to us. we gave him assurances we would not identify the caller but still they would not give it to us. >> you would think they could give us a transcript at the very least. interesting story. thank you. emailed the address on your screen or call 510-874-0222. it was slightly warmer out there today, fog along the coast at the bay bridge. the fog is that the coast, but that will push and tonight.

at the north and south ends of the airport starting next year. right now the corridor is the only area with the improved fencing. >> we are facing this. based upon funding and studying what needs to be upgraded. >> reporter: improvements can't come soon enough given all the breaches that have already happened. >> i am hoping that the government and investment in the security can keep up with what is happening, because i am afraid that the people who are trying to do bad things can do things faster than we can keep up with it. >> reporter: the money can't cover the entire fence, but that is the goal over the next few years as well as incorporating security and technology upgrades like surveillance, infrared and motion detectors. in san jose, ktvu with fox2. flowers where you might not

going to knit the bay area. maybe some rain around here. tomorrow slightly warmer than today as we go into wednesday, about the same. and as we go into thursday and friday, more clouds and there is that chance of a shower on saturday. so again we are just grabbing at stuff to give you the rest of the forecast really the same. hoping something happens on saturday. that would be great. >> it would be. tens of thousands of people are headed to lack locked desert journeying to earning man now getting underway. look at this. a very interesting creation.

a's. firing the third-base coaches a little like rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic, but sometimes the little moves pay off. third-base coach, key play here down five. he singles to center, they will send the runner. you hang on right there, we've got a shot to continue this inning. good move as it turns out because on the very next pitch, joey burns, fair ball down the right, he's got himself a two run double, and what looks to be a very quiet night at third- base for ron washington is about to get very busy. follows that up with a shot there down the left-field line, two more runs.
remember all this with two out some suddenly they are trailing only 5-4. routine chopper to first. he beaten to the plate and washington sends him all the way from second to score it to tie things up. remember, he is still up with two out. everything happens and the in the the -- inning continues. 11 unanswered young -- runs for the a's. 11-5, oakland a's the winner tonight. seems like the 49ers have just the guy they need. a breath of fresh air to take the focus off of a disastrous off-season and bring hope to the team. they hope he will turn the franchise around. he should be fun to watch. he returned three punts, 84 yards and that's the scenario where they have been woefully weak for years. more than a novelty act from australia, he believes in
