right now. they are favorites in the series and you have to go back to the lakers of 2001 to find a favorite like this to beat another team. at media day yesterday i tried to find somebody from the united states and media member among the thousands that could pick the cabs and couldn't do we have to look elsewhere. went to go internationally. >> the warriors even without andre and i think this is probably the worst they have done in the worst decade >> the cast they are sweeping. >> do they have a chance? >> no. >> -- >> reporter: nobody is for a meteor, but that wise, again the warriors favorites to win the game. i think today in game one the warriors will come out and try and make a little bit of a
statement like they did against houston. the warriors have to decide how much time they will take off? >> we saw that in the series when they take care of the basketball, value their possession and play the defense they are capable of playing there's no question they are the best team in the league. the only way they loses when they lose to beat themselves. tetralogy? >> tetralogy. call me if i am pronouncing it wrong. >> reporter: back to you. >> i will have to look that up. the u.s. says one of the events in the a volcano is winding. a survey drone flew over the volcano on saturday and according to the usgs it's due

cameras were not allowed inside. this is video from tuesday. the last time joseph deangelo was in court on tuesday. the judge is deciding whether to make search and arrest warrant documents in the case, public . the documents could include a list of items on files seized by the authorities at joseph deangelo's home. the judge has indicated he may unseal some of the documents by tomorrow. we are legal analyst michael cordova. we're just discussing this off- camera. how common is it to seal all of the documents? what you think is going to happen? >> is certainly happens. what the judge has to do in this situation, is balance the public's right to know. that's why the press had their attorney there. saying judge we want you to release everything. the press is the check and
balances on the court, both present -- print, tv and radio. on the other side in the balance, the judge has to say yes, but the defendant is entitled to a fair trial. so if we release everything, people, potential jurors, will make up their mind and we will never get a jury. >> we still don't know where the case will be tried. lawyers are arguing, it could take the case >> the jury panel, that's what they are saying. when we say we don't know where is being tried, i know the prosecutors have met in the four counties, sacramento, santa barbara, ventura, and orange county . they get together but nothing came of the last meeting. what they do is a sit down and talk and say who's going to be the lead case . my guess is it's going to be tried in sacramento . they have him there, they have the body there. so they really have the.
what they want to do is pick the very best case. so even though it's in sacramento, they may say this is the better case . let's get them convicted of that one and that we can worry about the other cases after . >> journalist to have the right to request information, that is something we are able to do . i think the interest in these documents is the dna test and genealogy . there wanting to know the technology that may have been used to nab him . >> people have all sorts of questions and then you have relatives of the victims, saying wait a minute, do you have some evidence of what happened in my son or daughter's case or my parents case? where they were murdered or raped? so there is another interest involved here. but i always thought in that case they can always go to the da and talk to them. the da very privately could deal with them. >> how much, both attorneys, prosecution and defense, have in the judge's decision? how many documents are how much of it might be judge unseal?
>> the judge will be a mediator, saying here's what i'm thinking about releasing. defense attorneys, what do you think? prosecutors, what do you think? then he will make a decision. i guarantee you he's not going to give it all up. he is going to give a little bit of it up, with the thought in mind i don't want to poison a jury panel. this case is so widespread i mean certainly throughout california. it could affect people and you don't want people coming in, having already heard about the case. now the fact if a juror has heard about a case does not disqualify a juror. the question the judge will then ask is, have you made up your mind about the case? you already think he's guilty or not guilty? and then people answer that and somehow they always go to, i've really made up my mind but i can put that aside. as a defense attorney i always giggle at that and say sure you
can . your knuckle to put it aside. but those are the things that the -- the judge has to be mindful of. i looked in england, where they absolutely say, you cannot, as a press reveal anything before a person is tried in england. after it's over, it's open -- open season for you guys. but california, the rest of the states, we say our public has a right to know certain things, but not everything. what the press wants to know, we all want to know, is what do they write in the search warrant to get the judge to issue it? what do they write in the arrest warrant, they will give the meat of the case and that's what we are all interested in. it's going to be interesting. they will cut it in half i would imagine. >> michael cordova, thank you so much. election day is less than one week away at voters in all nine bay area counties are being asked to in -- approve an increase in tolls on state owned bridges. the aim of the regional measure three is to bring big
improvements to the big bay area commute. >> reporter: bumper-to-bumper traffic, crowded trains and buses, and frustration getting where you need to go. the bay area has among the worst commutes in the country. regional measure three aims to alleviate that problem by generating 4 1/2 billion dollars over the next 25 years. the money would help fund money for two dozen transportation projects. it includes a part in stench and -- extension to the south bay. new train cars, and a extension to downtown san francisco. it would also increase ferry service between san francisco and oakland and help expound -- expand services to mission bay, berkeley and redwood city. it would also improve access to cycle and pedestrians to train stations and ferry terminals. 70% of the funding for regional measure three would go to
public transit. but it also includes funding for making wider freeways and more express lanes. all those improvements will come cheap. drivers would have to pay more in tolls on all seven of the state owned bridges in the bay area. tolls would gradually increase by three dollars over the next seven years. on the bay bridge, the toll during peak hours would increase from six dollars to seven dollars, next year. eight dollars in 2000 22 and up to nine dollars by the year 2025. currently it's five dollars to cross the richmond, san rafael bridge, perkiness bridge dunbarton bridge, several other bridges. those tolls would go up to six dollars next year. seven dollars in 2022 and eight dollars in 2025. tolls on the golden gate bridge are not affected by regional measure three. monte francis, ktvu ktuv fox2 news.

a local high school in concord. he talked about a local bill to protect student athletes from concussion. the congressman joins us now, life with more than that. good afternoon. thanks for joining us. mark, tell us what your bill will do? >> first off we will work with the nfl, ncaa and high school athletic association and with the medical profession to develop this bill that would have the national institutes of health do more research than they are doing now. and then we would have high schools adopt the best practices so they make sure they are doing everything to prevent concussions, if they can. >> how is a turn out at ygnacio valley today i imagine a lot of concerned parents there, right? >> we had a great turnout. about 150 kids, students and parents. then we had to former ballplayers, a neuroscientist, surgeon i should say.
and, we had a trainer. so it really went well. the kids asked great questions. >> what is your personal experience with concussion, what motivated you to work on this bill? >> actually, john madden worked with my predecessor george miller, he was unable to get the bill through so i picked it up. personally, i was a high school athlete and played football and lacrosse and played those at college as well and have been knocked out a few times . in those days, you get knocked out you get up and go back in the game. so we have learned a lot and can do a lot to protect young people from getting serious injuries. >>, i know it's a lot of sports, sadly a lot of those injuries go die and diagnose. tell me about the long-term effects of concussion? >> obviously it can affect your neural system and cognitive ability to problem solve, to be
able to function and have a job. we know to what happened to mike webster the all-pro hall of fame center for the pittsburgh steelers, very successful but he ended up homeless and committed suicide. very dire effect for him, obviously. but for others as well, we know a lot of former nfl players have had very serious problems. we are learning so much about neuroscience and the effect of trauma on the brain and we just need to apply that knowledge to make sure that young people are properly protected. >> what is next for the bill? >> the bill is introduced, we interested twice, we will introduce it again . unfortunately in congress we are not doing a lot between now and the election. but we are hopeful, particularly in the next term that we can get all of our supporters behind it and make this effective as possible we did get a portion of the bill into another billing get it amended which started the
process and created the money. the next step is to get that research out to all these schools so they can apply the best evidence best -- based research to protect their kids. >> i bet a lot of kids are behind it 100%. thank you so much for talking with us. good luck. let's check in with chief meteorologist bill martin . >> is a little cooler in some places today or about the same as yesterday. but the real story is the cool down since memorial day when temperatures on memorial day, we had upper 90s, 98 degrees on monday. but you see the curve here, what happened was yesterday was warm but it cold. but then it dropped all the way down thursday and today ends up being the coolest day and then we work our way out of the hole as we had to tomorrow. there is some weather out there on the west coast with high- pressure building in.
this low pressure system is the one that went through yesterday and brought us all the wind back. it kept us cool. air pressure dropped 20 degrees before -- from the day before. it's been a pretty similar weather in terms of the spring time. that's why we are seeing these temperatures like yesterday. today is still kind of cool, a bit below average. but as we head into tomorrow we will get more typical late may, early june pattern. air quality is not bad. but tomorrow, and the next day it will be hazy and i bet you will be tough to see it tomorrow. air quality will take a little hit because the air is shrinking and compressing because of the high pressure .
only thing about high pressure is when you are a kid you swim at the bottom of the swimming pool and you go down to the bottom and your ears hurt it's because the water is weighing on you when you get to the bottom. atmosphere has weight so when we sit here on the earth we have pressure of the atmosphere. so the atmosphere changes its weight based on its pressure system. so high pressure is pressing down, creating a higher density of molecules amass why we get poor air quality when we have high pressure. forecast high is awesome 80s in there. 86 in antioch, 87 in brentwood, 80 in san jose, 68 in redwood city.
