the campus. these vehicles here are from the investigators who just arrived. you can see the gentleman wearing a hazmat suit getting ready to go into the undeveloped field behind us which is where a campus worker discovered what appeared to be a body in that field. i want to bring in sergeant spencer crumb with the sonoma county sheriff's office. when will we know what kind of crime scene you're dealing with. >> they will start taking their equipment out there and probably around noon time or maybe later today, they will start digging and unearthing the body and we will start getting answers to this. >> do we know for a fact that it is a human body that was found? there was confusion whether it was other types of remains. >> it is human looking. it may be a prank. we're going to rule right now or treat it as such as a person. >> where exactly in relation to where we are is the scene? >> it is about 200 yards over here to the west in a clump of
trees. >> can you describe what it looks like? is it challenging to gather evidence around there. >> it shouldn't be. it is a heavily wooded area. it is just an undeveloped area of the campus here at sonoma state. >> if it is a body, is there any evidence of foul play or anything around there. >> we will have to determine that. the detectives are bringing out all their gear. >> what are your decks doing back at the station to try to connect the dots between a missing person that may be connected to this scene? do you know anything about that. >> we have a lot of detectives working on this, both here and at the office, trying to go through missing persons reports and trying to connect the dots and see who this may be. >> so far, nothing definitive. you were quoted as saying if this is a body, you don't know who it may be. >> that is the case. we're going to check all of the boxes and make sure that we do a thorough investigation here. >> what are the next step for the investigators and how long

>> with that play, the cubs ended 108-year drought bringing the trophy back to the north side of chicago. >> after the final out was recorded in cleveland, cubs fans spilled into the streets in chicago to celebrate. fans partied all night outside of wrigley field. i'm sure some are still partying. local bars cashed in on the hysteria. some charged $100 cover charge. some people played it. life long fans say the thrill to win it all was worth any price. >> it turns out that the winner was not a surprise for connor whitehill of oakland. before you say he had a 50/50 chance of get thanksgiving right, he actually made the prediction before the season had even started. >> i take statistics from all fields of baseball. batting, pitching, fielding and
put them all into one cover. i predict that the winner of the national league will be the chicago cubs. the winner of the american league will be the cleveland indians. and the winner of the world series will be the chicago cubs. >> nice work, connor. and check out this tweet that is going viral. it says 2016 world series cubs versus indians and then the world will end with the game tied in the 7th. acop police. this happened exactly the way it was tweeted. this was tweeted out november 4th, 2014, when the cubs hired joe maddon from the tampa bay rays. it had been retweeted more than 160,000 times and liked 130,000 times. >> there is a guy in a year back in 1994 who said that the cubs would win the world series in 2016. he put it on his senior quote. >> right. >> well, the team is back in chicago, the cubs. they are being greeted by a
large crowd, including a lot of fans who were not alive when the cubs won the last world series. joel waldman is recapping autopsy of of the the excitement live from cleveland. joel. >> reporter: good morning, sal, gasia, and mike. the 14-year-old kid, the twitter, the other guy, they should be in vegas not wasting their time. they could have made a lot of money. i don't know what they're thinking. but the game last night, we were there. i haven't slept. i'm exhausted. my eyes are actually tearing. forgive me for that. it had a little bit of everything. we had the a lead-off home run. four errors. we had extra innings. we had a rain delay. we had all of that. in the end, the chicago cubs, they erased that 108-year drought. the cleveland indians on the other hand, it will be at least 69 for their next world series win. >> we're in the books. we're in history store ever. >> reporter: the cubs win in
the 10th inning of the world series, ending a drought of more than a decade for the team. >> i knew hi to get rid of it. >> the cubs led throughout the game. but the indians were able to come back and tie it in the 8th. cleveland's manager said they were just trying to figure out how to get another run. but they were not able to pull it ahead. >> that was quite a series. you knew somebody was going to go home happy. but they deserve a lot of congratulations. >> reporter: many cubs fans never thought they would see the day that they would win the title. but chicago's manager says the hard work paid off. >> superstition has nothing to do with what is happening today. nothing. and if you want to believe in that kind of stuff, it will hold you back for a long time. >> reporter: actor bill murray says that a burden has been lifted for chicago fans. >> this has been so long.

>> a lot of happy fans in chicago. >> coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, stuck in traffic day after day. the new research that shows how bad the silicon valley commute has gotten and what you would do with all of that time that you spend in your car. ♪[music] they prey on our children, spending billions.
because in every state that's raised tobacco taxes, smoking rates go down. so who are you going to trust? pediatricians, cancer groups and the califronia pta who all... support prop 56. or the tobacco companies trying to kill it. vote yes on 56. >> with just five days until the election, hillary clinton and donald trump are hitting the campaign trail nonstop. >> we have to be nice and cool. nice and cool. right. stay on point, donald. stay on point. >> trump there reminding himself to stay on message in florida. a state that pollsters say he needs to win. hillary clinton meanwhile is reminding voters of the issues that have hurt trump. >> imagine having a president
who de means women, mocks the disables, insults latinos, african-americans, muslims, pows. >> the most recent polls show trump closing in on clinton. although he is still behind in many swing states. there is word that hillary clinton if she is elected is reportedly looking at san francisco mayor ed lee as a possible member of her cabinet. according to the washington website the hill, clinton might pick lee as possible education or housing and urban development secretary. the site says that clinton is under pressure to have a diverse cabinet. so far no comment from the mayor's office. we have also noticed that after the recession, traffic in the bay area that's started getting worse. about five years ago or so. >> absolutely. the study confirms what sal has been reporting every single day in your traffic reports. >> janine de la vega is joining us now with the long commute times facing many drivers. you have been talking to many
frustrated drivers about their commutes. es. >> reporter: yeah. they're definitely frustrated. i mean, it is pretty crazy. we're on southbound 880 right now in fremont, heading into san jose right now. if we go ahead and take a live look, at some point we were actually going faster than the carpool lane. it has gotten a little better. still pacing at just about 30 miles per hour or so. the joint venture economic institute found that the economic boom in silicon valley is causing an increasingly large number of solo drivers to make mega commutes. and those one-way mega commutes are taking 90 minutes or longer. they are primarily coming from alameda county, san francisco, and san joaquin county. and the silicon valley workers who live outside of the area, they are spending about 57 hours a month in their cars. that is time that could be spent working or with their families. families. >> we have a lot of coworkers who live in sacramento,
fairfield, oakley. they're commuting just two hours to get in. the mooity is horrible now. >> it's because everybody is working. you know bay area. i got a motorcycle in fact so i can skip all of that. during the winter, you can't. >> reporter: we spoke to a vta bus driver who says there are three bus yard that's have trailers and rvs set up for people who live 50 or more miles away. drivers spend the night there to avoid the traffic. experts say this study, it illustrates just how well the economy is doing. but with the continuing job growth, they say the problems are only going to get worse. and back out here live, now we're coming to a stand still on southbound 880. here near fremont. i can't tell what exit we're approaching just because a lot of the cars right now are blocking me. but if you think this morning's commute is bad, one of the things that we kept hearing from drivers this morning is the afternoon commute is even
worse. that if it takes them an hour and a half to get into san jose from out of this county, that coming back home is taking them sometimes two or three hours. back to you. >> thank you. and that afternoon commute starts earlier and earlier. as we talk about your daily commute, we know most times are rising across the bay. we asked you earlier and we're asking you now, what would you do with all of that extra time that you waste sitting in your car, sitting on public transit, if you could have that time back, what would you do with it? cat smith tweeted i'm lucky enough not to commute. but i suspect if my boyfriend had less commute time, he would help clean the kitchen. >> if i did not have to commute, i might actually get to sit down to a decent breakfast instead of a grab and go. i'm with you on that one. >> sunshine moore says if i could take back all of the hours spent in traffic every day, i would use it to sleep and spend time with my family.

get 15% back at the ikea kitchen event. >> recently ktvu's paul chambers had a unique opportunity to witness an open discussion of issues making headlines all across the country. >> the shootings of unarmed men of color, racial profiling have long been issues that separate law enforcement and many in the communities they serve. >> paul was invited to moderate the discussion. and here is what people had to say. >> reporter: more than 30 men and women from all walks of
life. >> benjamin. >> i was incarcerated. i did 20 years on a gang related homicide. >> i'm a lieutenant with the oakland police department. >> reporter: came together at the barbershop in san leandro. the purpose, a town hall discussion about what is facing the african-american and latino communities when it comes to their dealings with law enforcement. >> there exists is gap between the community and police officers and just the -- the criminal justice system. >> reporter: those here agreed that that gap didn't just start. it's been something that has been around for generations. >> if a brother wanted to read and run away and be free, he was the black criminal. >> i have been in situations where i did not like the police. i grew up in oakland. >> reporter: nearly everyone in the shop said they had negative encounters with law enforcement. a commonality for both sides. but the separation began to
grow when the discussion dealt with difficult topics. in 2009, oscar grant, an unarmed man was shot and killed by a bart police officer. >> spent less time in jail than michael vick. right. that's a very difficult thing for a community to accept. >> reporter: in 2010, eric jones, an oakland barber who was unarmed, shot and killed because they mistook his scale for a gun. mario woods was shot and killed by san francisco police last year. >> it's a situation to me where officers either appear to be overly aggressive and/or afraid of the situation and therefore respond in a way that to me is inappropriate in those cases. >> reporter: this topic led some to question, why must officers use lethal force. >> we don't train officers to kill. right. that's not what they're trained to do. they're trained to stop the threat. >> reporter: others asked, could an officer just wound the person by shooting them in a
body part. >> i know my capabilities and i know how i shoot. i would probably miss a arm or leg. that would travel down the field and hit someone else. >> deadly force is called deadly force because it is meant to stop the threat. not fartially injure the threat or wound the threat. >> we see a lot of force being used when it is not really necessary. >> reporter: she is referring to cases we have seen nationally captured on video. in 2014, eric garner was standing outside of a new york store when police say he was illegally selling cigarettes. garner died when officers put him a in chokehold. garner was unarmed. in july of this year, castile shot four times in his car in minnesota after being pulled over for a broken taillight. he was armed but licensed to carry. he was shot while reaching for his proper papers for his weapon. terrence crutcher a father of
four was on the side of the road with his vehicle awaiting assistance when officers responded to the stalled vehicle. after officers arrived, crutcher seen walking away with his hands up. moments later, he was shot and killed by a tulsa police officer. the officer claimed she thought crutcher was reaching for a weapon. it turns out crutcher was unarmed. >> there has been a lack of outcry from officers of color nationwide about the things that we see. and it's very difficult for the community to accept that. >> if something happens in the community, since we can't stand up, we need you all to stand up. because stuff is happening to us, to black folks, getting killed and murdered every day. >> there have been instances that, you know, the officer made a mistake. or they went a little bit too far. >> reporter: just that little bit of accountability some say will go a long way. when officers aren't afraid to say their colleagues are wrong. that leads to solutions which
can bring about change that can heal the community. the first step they recommend is looking in the mirror and starting a conversation at home. at home. >> we all have biases. whether we know it or not, we do have them. and in recognizing them, we take the first step in making a change. >> we have to educate not only the public but officers in general. >> we just need to respect each other. it starts with respect. >> you're talking about economics, politics, education. you're talking about a lot of things that need to be fixed. we need to educate everyone across the board. everybody has to do better, not just law enforcement. >> paul chambers joining us in the studio. i love the discussion. take us back, alameda sheriffs county knocks on your door and says, paul, we want you to be a part of this. >> they e-mailed the station. and within that e-mail they said we would like paul ryan to take part in the conversation. i think they understand that it is something that i have gone
through as an african-american, a lot of the issues that they were talking about. not all but some of the issues. they wanted someone to make sure it was a balanced conversation, not an argument back and forth. >> uh-huh. >> that's where we come in. especially as reporters and anchors, we see the police side and we see the community. >> even though it is very, very personal. i heard zero shouting. nobody lost their temper. a lot of emotion but never out of control. >> no. we laid down ground rules and asked people to be respectful of other people's opinions. they did it. >> paul, for people who don't know, the barbershop is a good community meeting place for african-american men. can you explain how that dynamic works. >> basically what it is, i'm sure it is similar in the latino community. it is a spot for all men, usually it is all men, sometimes the moms come in, you're talking about sports and what is going on in your community. it is one of those opportunities that a lot of people go to the church. it's a weird way to say that. but it is a church situation, a family situation where people
have an opportunity to have open, frank discussions about everything. >> it is also neutral ground because police officers get their haircut just like you do. >> yeah. closing the gap and then also when that one gentleman had mentioned we need you guys to stand up for us. is that what when you walked away what the community members thought, that the police officers, deputies didn't stand up for them? >> they believe when something negative happens, when an officer does something wrong and they think and know it's wrong, they need people inform say it's wrong. situations where there's an officer-involved shooting where the shooting was blatantly incorrect. they need the officer to say we need to step away from this. this is not what we represent. this is not what we do. we need to call the officer out for being a bad officer. and they need to hear more of that. the other thing that came out owe. >> did the officers agree with that. >> yes. they said we have other pieces online that talk about that, go into that more in depth. if something is wrong, you have
to report it. if you don't, we he can't get the bad officers off of the streets. they also need more officers of color. so people in of color in the community needed to apply for the commissions so people can understand what is going on truly. >> what a conversation. we could go on for hours. >> we have a 30-minute special and we will have more of these conversations. one thing that a lot of people noticed, there were no caucasian officers in there. they wanted to have the conversation solely first so they can understand and report back to their caucasian counter parts so they're not blindsided coming into the conversation. >> looking forward to that special. watch more of the discussion at ktvu.com. just look for it on the home page. coming up next on mornings on 2 the 9, this election day voters will decide whether to pass a bond measure to help pay for upgrades to the aging bart system. we will look at one of the agency's most pressing problems, a leaking tunnel
♪[music] >> welcome back to the 9. we are checking the twitter feed. the question of the day regarding the commute in the bay area. if you didn't have a bad commute, what would you do with the extra time? terry pond chimed in and said i would spend it drinking coffee and watching ktvu for the traffic authority. >> i have a one-word answer. she says sleep. >> i know. >> a lot of one word answers. it came right away. sleep. sleep. sleep. >> i saw a lot of spend more time with the family. john said for 20 years he
commuted to the financial district on muni. he highlighted something that he liked about the commute. i actually miss that dedicated time to read for pleasure that my commute afforded me. he is looking on the bright side. thanks for talking to us through facebook and twitter. the hashtag is #ktvu. it is no secret that bart is an aging transit system in need of repairs. >> on election day, voters will decide on a multi billion dollars bond measure that will help pay for upgrades. but opponents question whether the money will be spent on fixing the aging system. >> this morning, bart is shining a light on one of the most critical maintenance problems. alex savidge got a rare look inside the bart system. he is here with a look at the rain forest. >> that is what the workers call it. so many problems with the bart system. things in need of repair. bart officials say this is a
top priority. the so-called rain forest is a spot underneath san francisco where the groundwater, thousands of gallons of groundwater are constantly leaking through the bart tunnel. all of that water can wreck havoc on the system. and so to get there, we hopped on a maintenance truck at civic center station. we drove through the darkness over to the 16th street station in the mission. we had to do this of course in the overnight hours for the few hours that the trains are not running through the tunnels obviously because we're in the middle of the tunnels. then the superintendent showed us where water from an underground aquifer is leaking through the walls of the tunnel. >> and there is so much of it at times that you can hear it. the problem is that that water seeping through the tunnel is corrosive. it eats away at the rails,
fasteners, train control boxes. crews are constantly replacing the parts. >> we address it immediately because we can't have water dripping on the rail. that can lead to failures and broken rails which leads to service disruptions. >> you will be in here with rain gear. it is raining ow of the ceiling. >> the water gets on the rail and eventually causes it to break. when that happens, all -- you know, all hell breaks loose. >> and that did in fact happen last month. this leaking tunnel caused a piece of tunnel to crack. that led to massive delays for bart riders across the system. it will cost several million dollars to permanently fix the rain forest. they will have to pump a clay into the walls to stop the water from coming through. bart says some of that $3.5 billion from measure rr in bond money could be used to fix the problem. opponents say bart has not
spent money wisely in the past. >> we like to support bart. it is a critical transportation artery. they are putting a gun to our heads and saying vote for this bond measure or else. >> that was state senator steve glacier. he says about a third of the bond monday friday measure rr can be used to pay for employee salaries and benefits and no guarantee it will go towards system repairs. bart will begin working on a permanent fix regardless of the outcome of the election. >> we were asking viewers to vote. are you going to vote for this or not? more than 50% said no. where will the cash go there. >> that's what the opponents of the measure say. there's no guarantee that all of the money will be going to the upgrades. >> you know what, i was going to say speaking of the election, we understand that -- i didn't know you were joe moderator.
check this out from last night. >> elements should be concentrated in the downtown and commercial districts. >> do i get 15 minutes for that? [laughter] >> that is alex moderating the debate for the candidates for mayor of berkeley. >> he got two minutes. >> how did that go? >> it was a very unique experience. those were the top three candidates for mayor of berkeley. three council members. our discussion last night, it was a good one. we were focusing on the pace of development, especially in downtown berkeley. talking about affordable housing in berkeley and how best to keep people in their homes. >> did you feel the pressure? watching the presidential debates. >> sure. it is an important role that you have. absolutely. >> did you start trending on twitter? >> i wasn't checking twitter. the most important thing a moderator does is listen. you guys know that well.
you have to listen. and then you have to be able to follow up as -- as needed. i thought we had a very good discussion. as a said before we got started, someone born in berkeley and raising a family in the city, it was an incredible honor to be asked to do that. >> very cool. >> you didn't mess up. >> i don't think so. hopefully not. >> thank you, alex. >> let's bring in our meteorologist steve paulson and a quick check of the thursday forecast. >> it looks really nice, guys. >> good. >> lots of sunshine, warm temperatures and a little fog this morning. sonoma county and lake county. but most of that looks like it is about done. everything points towards sunshine and warm temperatures. east bay is warming up. the best temperatures will probably be coast and bay. a little bit of an off shore breeze. we have gone from the october rain to november sunshine and warm temperatures. they will continue to warm up until friday. today, lots of 70s. that includes san francisco and oakland. tomorrow is the warmest day. looks good saturday. clouds.
not much rain on sunday. then clearing. the next couple of weeks look quiet and dry. that makes sense after what we had in october. >> thank you, steve. >> you bet. the age of 17 is a coming of age movie that may remind you of movies such as sixteen candles or the breakfast club. >> haley seinfeld stars in the film. >> it really is just a hair. >> you can pull it out. >> well, the movie is in threaters november 18th. haley is joining us live in studio. thank you for coming in. >> hello. >> we talked about sixteen candles. did you ever watch those movies in regards to preparing for this film. >> i have seen them before. >> different generation. >> yes. there was no real reference to those films when making this film. it was nice to have had a film that was an honest
interpretation of being a teenager and bringing that to my generation. >> a lot of kids who -- kids, people who watch these movies will identify and see this and they will relate that to their own lives. maybe your movie will touch a lot of people in that position. >> i really hope so. i hope my generation feels like they're not alone and feels like it's their story. it does their story justice. but, yeah, this movie is a true coming of age story of what being a teenager feels like today. >> a best friend turns on you. starts dating the brother. and gets the parents who are essentially useless. i can't imagine you that had an awkward second when you were 17. >> that's what most people think. but no, my -- my high school years were very similar to this character. i was home-schooled through high school. i imagine if i was in high school, i would literally be that girl with the bad haircut. >> just like pedro.
>> yeah. >> when you were 13, you beat out 15,000 girls for that role in true grit. how did that change your life from that moment forward. >> it has forever changed my life in ways that i can't describe. since then, i don't know, doors have opened in every direction. and i will say looking back on that experience, having -- having been taught by the greats, i will forever remember it and take with me what i learned on that set. >> you talk about the greats. woody harrelson is in this film. what is it look working for him. >> he is -- >> mr. vegan. >> are you a vegan now. >> no. no. he is so much fun. the best sense of humor and so talented. constantly kept me on my toes which is awesome but terrifying. i had the best time filming with him. >> my middle school years were horrific. now i look back and say i wish i knew x, y and z. if you could look back on your younger self,
what would you say to girls that they don't need to worry about or focus on instead of the little things. >> i think the idea of being your best to be who you are. if i could just tell myself like it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. what about you isn't that they might think isn't. so just going back and realizing it is a moment in time. and i guess nothing is really worth going crazy over. >> but when you're 13. >> yes. >> and is there a special message that you have to girls in particular? because, you know, i have daughters. this time could be trying for girls, trying to wear clothes and fit in and being glamorous. you're in high school. do you have any message for girls. >> similar to what i said. be yourself. don't be influenced by what the other kids are saying or doing. be who you are and find your light and don't let anybody -- don't let anybody get in your way. >> you're 19 years old. you mentioned that you were
home-schooled. >> yes. >> are you still home? are you out on your own? do you have your own apartment? >> no. i'm still at home. part of me wakes up sometimes and i go, all right, mom, this is it. dad, i love you. >> like every 19-year-old. >> right. and then i leave for a couple weeks and then i come home and i'm like i just want to be at home with my parents. >> southern california. >> yes. >> you're a singer as well. if you had to pick one of the two, acting or singing? >> i cannot pick. literally i -- without even thinking too much about it, i don't see doing one without the other. they both have been part of my plan. i'm passionate about both. >> and you want to get behind the camera as well. produce and make the films that we watch. >> any time that i make a movie with someone like jim brooks or the producers behind this movie, every time that i work with people like them, i just want to be in their position and do what they do. i have the honor of constantly
being inspired by the people that i work with. that's what makes me want to do it. >> what do you like to do when you're in the bay area? >> i want to go on one of these boats. >> pick up a kayak. >> all right. >> yeah. i don't know. i do love it here. i need to come here and actually spend time. it is so beautiful here. the weather is awesome. >> you're coming back next month. you're performing in san jose on december 3. >> uh-huh. >> your movie, the edge of 17, is a see enix song. >> yeah. >> we will be right back after the break. the movie the edge of 17 with haley seinfeld. >> i can't believe you were ever awkward. don't try to sell me on that. ♪[music]

fry them. this book is so fun. >> this book you -- you're relying on your pantry a lot. >> yes. >> you have to have your goody sensual stuff because i don't want to go to the store every day after work. >> i'm not looking for an ingredient that doesn't exist. the most foreign thing is dijon. it has sugars and salt that make a great marinade. being a san francisco boy, coming back from a book tour from new york city. it is nice to be back in san francisco, i'll be signing at costco. >> you have a new restaurant in san francisco. >> yes. >> thin town. it is in the castro. >> the hot spot. >> it is a hot spot. we have dual bars. it opens at the end of fall. you can see the rendering that i did there flying over this morning. >> this is mike and sal's
department. >> yeah. the cool thing about this is such an iconic beautiful neighborhood. >> yes. >> and we're bringing a vibrant live restaurant there. >> will you be able to get a reservation. >> you have my phone number. >> do you still get nervous opening a restaurant. >> knock on a big surfboard here. >> the rate out there for restaurants are not strong. but i have a great team. my manager is from l.a. he is strong. my chef is from san francisco. my business partner is a san francisco castro native. we have done our due diligence and our demographic research and put a lot of money into this project. and when it opens, it's going to be the talk of the town. >> when you say you do your demographic research, you are looking at other establishments. >> of course. >> we made food and cocktails that you want 7 days a week. not an anniversary or valentine's day. the place that you stop in with your husband and wife and have
a cocktail and oysters or go later because we're open late many nights of the week and get dessert and a cocktail. >> it is a cocktail place. >> yes. >> we had a great company that we worked with out of san francisco. there are things that you remind you of robin williams. and you will see that from the core to my food that is being served late night every single day of the week. it is an honor to do both at the same time. the book and the restaurant are opening around the same time. >> desserts in the back of the book as well. >> i am a huge dessert fan. think of a cake box mix. that's the basis to every dessert. i show you how to make my kitchen sink cookies. >> salty and sweet is my favorite. >> take sugar and flour.
>> and chocolate mousse. >> here is the thing. i show you one ingredient. the cake box mix turns into key lime waffles that turns into the kitchen sink cookies that turns into crumble that goes on top of the milk shake. the chocolate that turns into pies, cookies and truffles. >> as a chef, when you're cooking at home. >> uh-huh. >> do you have a comfort dish, a go-to dinner? what do you make that is not in the cookbook. >> putting you on a spot a little bit. >> thank you so much, gasia. i love you too. >> you know all of the tricks. >> right. >> you have everything at your disposal. you're tired and hungry. >> if i can't cook it, clean it, and enjoy it in 30 minutes, i won't do it. i took my mom's meat sauce and i used my pantry staples, my canned ingredients. the pasta takes around 12 minutes. use the pasta water and make a
quick dish. i hate washing dishes. anybody else at this table. >> i find it therapeutic. >> why? >> you're trapped in a working mom's body. >> a 19-year-old's body. >> the restaurant opens this month in the castro. the book is called 1 to 15. chef ryan scott will be signing copies of the book saturday at 1:00 on the costco on 10th street in san francisco. >> mike, are you going to come? >> yeah. >> here you go. >> come, on mike. >> i love costco. >> i will shop at costco one day. i would go crazy.
