's there are not critical
minimums for that long. there are some to the north, but it's not like 29 or anything like that. that's when you -- just get prepared for later on. in fact, looks like a lot of temperatures will stay above freezing. there's always done that stay near their up -- up towards the russian river. overall, i'm seeing a lot of upper 30s and 40s. not so much in the way of 20s but it's still early. clear skies, what about those temperatures? 34 in napa and santa rosa, fairfield 36, san ramon in there, palo alto and san jose down to 43. 30s for almost everybody here. healdsburg is in there, calistoga, sevastopol, petaluma, there must be a breeze with that observation. these are still above freezing. yet we still have frost advisories. for some it will be a cold warning for all in the 30s and 40s. everything to the north for now. a cold morning, sunny today, looks good, patchy inland fog out towards stockton and tracy. 60s on the temps.

have a live report from the scene of this crime, police activity at about 4:30. let's go back to the desk. today, americans will pause to honor the men and women who served the nation in the armed forces. there are several veterans day observances in the bay area today. one of the largest is at the golden gate national cemetery in san bruno scheduled for 11:00 this morning. amongst the speakers is a world war ii vet awarded the silver star and purple heart. more than 140,000 veterans and their family members are buried at the golden gate national cemetery. local boy scouts will place american flags at military gravesites. one group of scouts will place flags at sunset view cemetery in el cerrito. the leader says it's a wonderful way for scouts to serve the community while respecting veterans and honoring their sacrifices. the uss hornet will host a tribute today to veterans as well. the program officially begins

recruits hired and trained since may of 2010 have left for other agencies. barda has hired 22 of the deputies followed by the richmond police department which has hired 11. the sheriff says deputies in contra costa make 15% less than neighboring counties and the turnover has cost the county more than $1 million in recruitment and training of new deputies. more trouble for the santa clara county sheriff's office and its main jail. the mercury news reports an inmate will file a claim today contending that guards dragged him to a cell and severely beat him and broke his job. ruben garcia tells the paper the guards were angry that he had become impatient and loud while waiting several hours to be processed. the sheriff says her office takes every complaint seriously and will investigate the allegations. garcia says he also witnessed three other correctional deputies beat and kill michael tyree in august. the deputies now face murder charges. libby schaaf plans to make
