9:04 am
that street was still closed as they cloned up. another driver didn't see the officer coming and veered in his correction forcing the officer into the center divide into a light pole and a tree. >> so then i give the signal and see over my shoulders nobody coming and see in my mirror nothing is coming so then i moved. so then i get the bump and then i got scared. and i saw there was a car who hit me with no headlines on. . >> a witness told us the officer did have his service lights on. the patrol car had been towed away. all lanes are closed to traffic between ridgeway and 41st street. some new information about a man shot and killed last night. we just finished an interview with santa clara police about the incident. the man was known to police.

9:07 am
alley played a more central policy role. the administration invited select members of congress for pizza and bowling last night hoping to win them over. the vice president made it clear they are open to negotiation. >> i have to tell you, this is part of a very healthy debate and healthy dialogue. >> number three. this is where i think there's a lot of confusion all over the map. >> the house speaker used what looked luke a power point presentation to make his pitch. a three stage process to repeal and replace obamacare that would offer tax credits. >> this is the closest we will get to repealing and replacing obamacare. no so fast say his fellow republicans who see this as another entitlement. >> that's not how the process is supposed to work. if you got an idea that you can get to the floor, then let's have the debate.
9:08 am
>> democrats of course don't want any part of this. >> no one likes the bill. hospitals and doctors and governors and conservatives liberals and nonpartisan groups and most of all, the people who will no longer have affordable healthcare. >> republicans are working on a pretty aggressive time line. the vice president said yesterday they want to have this wrapped up this spring. in washington, doug luzader action fox news. there are signs that president trump will make adjustments to his travel ban if los angeles is picked to host the olympic games in 2024. that's according to the head of the committee trying to win the summer games for los angeles. the ceo says president trump will make sure there's free access for people to compete. he also says the president invited the head of the inter international olympic committee to the white house. his turnt term ends in 2021 so this would only be his decision

9:11 am
free agency up next, we're talking about new management and players drafted.
9:12 am
9:13 am
great day on this friday. a live look at the dow, up almost 19 points. the 28,000 and nasdaq up as well. this morning we're talking about nfl free agency and players are changing teams. sometimes teams end up regretting getting the players during free agency. >> you better believe it. joining us now, nfl sports writer, we have been talking about which team you think is going to make the biggest change this season.
9:14 am
>> in the bay area, it would have to be the 49ers. the raiders are already good. i can't see anything changing with them. they're going to be competitive moving forward as long as they have derek. they will be good. >> yesterday i know the 49ers went hard on the offensive side of the ball. >> yeah, well, we didn't have a quarterback. the colin kaepernick divorce was inevitable and now it's official. i told sal earlier this morning. he's at least a serviceable player. i think he's probably going to be more consistent than colin kaepernick the last several years but he's not great. they aren't going to win many games. i think they will be more competitive and watchable. at least they will have someone who is experienced. what do you think the 49ers will do with that number two pick? >> i think they end up going defense.
9:15 am
it's a very good defensive draft. in a perfect world you take a quarterback at number two and build for the future. >> yeah, the problem is, i don't know if he's worth that. you talked about the stock market. that's essentially what the draft is, a market value. i think you will be able to see him. those guys were second round picks. you can find good value in there. don't you need a hot pick like that? sometimes when you worry about what the fans think you end up sitting with them. luckily, they got that in kyle shanahan, that six year deal. there's urgency he talked about. you have to do it the right way. when you overreact, he deserves a lot of credit. he was slow and it paid off. it took a couple years. it was ugly and the 49er fans, it can't get much uglier. >> it took a while.
9:16 am
fans are patient enough. the owner. >> they're going after him. >> no one is going to blame him for the next couple of years. >> i think especially john lynch. smart guy former player, he has respect when he walks in. like har baebaugh, he will be good. it's not that difficult. he is a football player when it comes to tid ra everies, a lot of crickets in the camp yesterday. not a lot of action. are they set for another run at the super bowl with the team they have? >> they need to add some pieces but as long as you have that quarterback and let's face it, he's a star. you're going to be in the mix. so you got to take that.
9:17 am
we'll have a good shot. >> the event wall decline. >> but when you eat avocado ice cream and no cashes, 40's is the new 30. >> kirk cousins want to be a 49er. >> he signed his franchise tender. >> for as much heat as he gets dan snyder sits at the top of nfl owners. >> we have been talking about the 49ers and raiders, facing a lot of obstacles. the nineers are under new leadership and the raiders may not be playing in oakland down the road here. which team we're asking will take the bigger step forward during the next season? . 0 woer also asking you on social media your responses. >> looks like 52% say -- 53% say the raiders 20 something%
9:18 am
and 8% say both have a good shot. 13% have neither and more work to do there. >> one tweet saying the quakes. >> well done out there. also responding on twitter, one user says the raiders will advance further in the playoffs but san francisco may jump from a two win team to a 6 or 7 win. las vegas is a big step, i see the sarcasm there. 0. >> the results of the poll coming up at 9:30. go to for more and you can also reach us at the hash tag ktvu nine. coming up next, a new movie about armenian genocide,
9:19 am
combining a dark period with a love story. safety rails and garbage cans and toilets added to this large homeless encampment. what business owners are saying about the recent upgrade.
9:20 am
9:21 am
0. a couple weeks ago they visited a large homeless encampment becoming a source of tension for people working nearby. >> on wednesday there were upgrades made to west oakland camp included making the living area more sanitary. frank went back and found those working nearby are not happy with the changes. one of oakland's biggest memoless encampments just got a makeover. reflective signs pounded in their new rails to protect their nearly 200 homeless. >> he started to realize the
9:22 am
city was trying to help us. >> dozens of brand new garbage cans at each lot got a fire extinguisher and the biggest edition are toilets. they have installed two portable toilets and more to come. they come complete with a wash station. >> i'm for the city. the city is amazing and generous. >> the homeless are happy and busy owners not so much. >> we're not a priority. we feel like we're out here in west oakland and this is where it's at. >> his west envelope company sits across the street and he is fed up. garbage and sewer bills run over a thousand dollars while the homeless get a free pass and the new amenities is an invitation to stay put. >> these people are just now collecting here and doesn't seem to be an end to it. >> san francisco sent their crews into this encampment and moved the homeless out.
9:23 am
. >> it appears to me san francisco is doing something about it and trying to take care of the businesses over there where here it's falling on deaf ears but we're out of site and out of mind. >> safety and housing are the core issues here. joe tells housing is the solution but until supply meets demand, addressing the safety and health issues are the issue for people without permanent housing. >> sorry, we're poor. hopefully we'll be coming up soon. this isn't forever. frank joins us live here in the studio. it does appear the city is making it easier for those homeless to live on the streets. >> the city fires back they don't have the housing. >> they do have to make it sanitary. right now they don't have the housing and there are 500 shelter beds in the city.
9:24 am
2500 plus that are homeless in the city so they can't house them each night. if these people are staying there, you can't have them going to the bathroom in the streets. they are putting out garbage cans and bathrooms. >> ironically it was a business group that actually came up with the idea and approached oakland to just make it more sanitary and safe. some of the other business owners say they went overboard and why not take this money and put it into a fund for affordable housing to help these people get off the street. >> you have heard from business owners. i know we have done stories in the bay area where restaurants are seeing decline in business. people don't want to go downtown where there are people camped out and it's unsanitary. you have heard from these business owners i was in san francisco with a couple stories over there and they actually got action but they came in and cleaned up the encampment on san bruno street but all those
9:25 am
people did was move to another street down the black. that's an issue. i did get an email from a woman that owned buildings there and since these encampments have come in on wood street, she's been refused to refinance her building from a bank. they have cancelled her property insurance and she is being threatened by east bay because they can't get to the meters. one of the gentlemen i talked to, he gets his product on a rail car across the street on wood street and there's so many dogs and pit bulls out there, the company that brings the rail cars in said you have to get rid of the dogs before you can get products so there's a big give and take. >> do you see because one gentlemen in your piece, do you see a big difference in the way the cities are dealing with the problem? >> one of the gentlemen said maybe san francisco has more money to deal with the problem but i think oakland -- they have a compassionate care program where they're trying to deal with this to help these
9:26 am
people. san francisco has actually moved out some encampments but they're having issues with the homeless. these people have mental health issues and drug issues and just because you give them transitional housing and an opportunity to get off the street, they have to cooperate and a lot of them don't. they want to stay in the treats. one of the big things, 60% of those homeless in the city of oakland are from oakland. so they don't really -- it's not like they can go back to stockton or some other town to be with their parents or family. >> i wonder if you go back in a month with having the addition of porto potties. >> and it's almost like hey, here's your calling card. if you're homeless and need amenities, come here. but you feel for the city too. it's a fine line you walk. a month ago i did the long piece about the homeless in oakland, trair trying
9:27 am
everything they can to deal with the problem. as machine m as they can because there are a couple of bond measures pushing millions of dollars into this affordable housing situation. but the homeless are probably further down on the totem pole. >> such a heartbreaking situation all around no real answer but it's a big problem. >> thanks for the update. coming up next, a ten year old girl is collecting barbies for a good cause. how land for the dolls and how the vision has now changed thanks to more donations than she expected. >> it's a twist on the fairy tale you grew up with. two actors of the show "into the woods" playing here in the bay area.

9:29 am
welcome back everybody to mornings on two. free agency starting yesterday in the nfl.
9:30 am
we tied our twitter poll to that on this day. the question was which team will make a bigger step forward the upcoming season. the 49ers or raiders both or neither. 26% said the 49ers and 53% said the raiders and 7% said both and 14% said neither. i lu say -- i mentioned it earlier -- a tweet from american distressed said don't forget the quakes. >> one of our viewers calling it raiders go to the super bowl. >> they could. if the quarterback derek carr is back. . >> 49ers could double their win total or go 500 says one twitter user. that would be a bigger step forward. >> right. a lot of action ahead for those two nfl teams as well as for the earthquakes.
9:31 am
we look forward to that. >> very hopeful. >> steve is out today, rosemary ri in. >> she's in but she's out. >> you're in the square. >> yes, a beautiful place to be this morning. in spite of the cloud cover, still very mild out here. let me step away and show you as we look towards the west. a little bummed we just missed the tall ships that pulled out a moment ago. the beautiful historical ships that remind you of pirates of the caribbean, on their way towards the bay. gorgeous out here and calm and quiet. temperatures in the 50s. that's where we are this hour. it has to do with the cloud cover out here this morning. a little bit of patchy fog and that's going to continue as we get into your weekend as well. we are continuing with temperatures in the 50s throughout morning the hours and as we get into the afternoon, we'll see a nice change up.
9:32 am
yesterday we had a bit of light sky. the same thing today with numbers back in the 60s and 70s out there. meanwhile over portions of the north bay, that's where we're likely to see warmer weather as we get into the second part of the afternoon. so again, looking at your temperatures at this time, 55 degrees in san francisco. 61 in concord. for the second part of the day, 66 expected in san francisco and upper 60s for the east bay and 64 degrees expected for antioch. one of the warmer spots 76 for santa rosa. the bay area weekend is nice. a mix of sun and clouds there. patchy fog along the coastline and starting the morning in valley locations, temperature wise not changing a lot. low to mid 70s for the back end of the weekend. again, it's that time of year when it's time to change the clocks. daylight saving time saturday night into sunday. so don't forget about that.
9:33 am
outside of that, it's good out here with a nice start to the morning and a good looking afternoon expected with several days of dry weather coming our way. nearly 100-foot tall redwood tree is a point of controversy. neighbors say it could leave them without options if there's trouble with the tree in the future. >> look at this marvelous work of art. >> there are many things that are precious to mary j but at the age of 96 few of them appear to be as close to her heart as this redwood tree. she planted it in 1962 as an elegant tribute in the face of a tragic plane crash i lost my husband and children and i did it in memory of them. it's over 50 years old and it's the great incredible wonder. >> it has to do with something
9:34 am
her late husband did. >> did he propose to you there. >> yes, but i don't talk about that. >> the tree has grown 96 feet tall and part of the few from lombard street, less than a block away. >> to have this giant in the heart of the city -- you don't think that's fantastic. >> not for everyone. the tree has caused controversy spilling into city hall. the supporters have asked to grant the tree making it impossible to remove or alter it and that idea doesn't sit well with the neighbors. >> you can see the bay going here. >> the family across the street blocks their view of the tower in north beach. their main concern is safety. >> there are risks and sards to to -- -- hazards. something that we were worry and are concerned about. >> a host of supporters want to
9:35 am
assure the tree is preserved. opponents worry landmark ta tus would limit options for the tree in the future. >> if the next person who buys the house has the tree landmarked, it will be difficult to trim it and remove it. >> they are expected to decide whether or not giving it status status. jay is former shift designer and builder and feisty. she says she wants people to enjoy and admire her tree. >> this tree is a live alive. the movie the promise is described as an epic love story. it's released next month. live this morning with more from the producer raised in san
9:36 am
mateo. a uc berkley grad. a special screening of that fill was yesterday. >> yes, there was in san jose. the producer of the film actually did a q and a with movie goers. he was quite emotional invested in this film called "the promise ". >> we're going to make a stand. >> the promise charts the top of sales. it's a medical student play ed played by the man. the fair and impartial m was the brain child of an ar menin n philanthropist. sadly he died before the film
9:37 am
was completed and he says it was really a challenge from the start to get this movie made. >> because of the denial of the armenian genocide for years, both political and i would say social reasons why the film has been defied and why the story was denied for so many years, i think that was already a barrier to getting it off the ground and also the fact that it's a historical drama and if you look at movies that come out in this day and age story dramas are not coming out in the fore films. >> it was the government extermination of 1.5 million armenians in 115. proceeds will be donated to nonprofits -- -- 1915. a social impact campaign will
9:38 am
also be launched about the atrocities and again, the promise will heat theaters april 21st. live in san francisco, back to you. well, it's the day theater fans have been eagerly waiting for. hamilton starts tonight at san francisco's theater, that show a modern take on the founding fathers of our country, alexander hamilton, it's already received several awards and tickets have been sold out for months. there is a lottery starting today, 44 tickets will be offered two days before each performance and they are $10 a piece. the show will be in san francisco through august 5th. another show playing at shn golden gate theater is into the woods based on the the hit movie. joining us this morning, stephanie who plays the witch and also fred rose who is the mysterious man.
9:39 am
>> good morning. >> good morning. i love "into the woods". it's a fabulous story. must be fun to act in. >> it is. just a compilation of the grimes brothers fairy tales. a lot of recognizable characters like cinderella and little red riding hood. >> the darker versions. the first act and the seblgd act are two completely different shows almost. we have seen it on the screen recently. it's been staged countless times around the world. when people go to this in san francisco, what is different compared to other times. >> well, for one thing, it's a very ensemble oriented so we tell the story together from the get go. when you walk into the theater and come on the stage, it's different because we're standing their addressing the audience how many are there? >> 11. >> yes, we sort of stripped it
9:40 am
down a bit and there are a lot of props. all the aspects of the show are like you would take them from your grandmother's attic and tell the story that way. i think they're trying to hone in on the characters and the story telling aspect of kwlt into the woods" so i need to bring my imagination? >> exactly. we have a lot of small props but one stays the same and everything else that happens, we're doing and make the music and we make the sound and create the scenes. >> do you like that. >> i love it. it's a great way to work. my character, i would be spending a lot of time playing cards in the dressing room. but as it turns out, we are all on stage almost all the time supporting each other and playing music i would imagine each night is different. >> yes. >> absolutely. it all depends on the audience
9:41 am
and how they're prar tis pating and their reactions and how much they're giving so it changes our performance for sure. >> did either of you see this play before you started working? you knew it before you workeden it? >> yes, of course there's the well-known recording which i know i grew up with. . >> that was the one i was bread and buttered on. this say completely new concept, one that i've never seen before. >> i was reading one of the reviews for the show and it said umo comes close to stealing the show. >> are you making that up? >> i wrote it down, right there. my question is do you read reviews from city to city or is it one of those things where you don't want to. >> i don't read the reviews. >> do you think a good review -- it can affect your performance. >> yeah, it does. >> good or bad. >> i feel like that with movie reviews.
9:42 am
i think well, i want to make my own judgment. >> exactly. >> movie actors don't have to worry because once the review comes out they're done but live on stage every night, anything that gets in your head, it's ruined. >> sorry, i didn't mean to say that. have you gone to san francisco before? >> no, first time. . >> thanks for taking the time and coming on. more information for tickets into the woods, right there on our home page. look for it in the section under the mornings on two tab and you can find it on our mobile app. coming up next, you know him from "in living color" and a spot this weekend, he's right here in the bay area. up next live in the studio with actor and comedian, tommy dickson.
