there's going to be a chance for public comment about tonight's meeting. arkansas just had the nation's first double execution in more than 16 years. it was marked by controversy and accusations one of the prisoners suffered in his death. jack jones and marcel williams both died by lethal injection. the state executed jones for the rape and murder of a book keeper in 1995. three hours later williams was put to death for the murder of a young mother in 1994. a judge temporarily blocked williams' lethal injection because his attorneys argued the first execution was inhumane. they say officials spent 45 minutes trying to place an iv in jones' neck before they had to put it elsewhere and he gulped for air as he died. the judge allowed both executions to go forward. 6:36. to developing news this morning on the korean peninsula. officials in the south claim the north conducted a massive show of force with large scale artillery drills. the exercise marked the anniversary of the founding of its military 85 years ago and

many residents of san francisco's mission district are not happy about a new temporary homeless shelter planned for their neighborhood. the location is in an empty building at van ness and 26th street. some residents said not here, not now. others want the center to open quickly. >> i know we need to get these people in homes but adding 120 people to the area is not the right solution. and also they're going to end it with no exit plan. that's another big issue. >> every single day we delay folks who are living on the streets are still out on the streets and around getting the services they need and neighbors still continue to have to deal with these tent encampments. >> a second community meeting will be held about the issues because last night's was over p. marin county has an interesting problem -- they have too much money. they'll be swimming in it by the end of the fiscal year and there's suggestions on what to do with it. county officials said marine
6:39 am
should see a $5.5 million surplus by the end of june. they suggested the money could be spend on improving roads damaged during the storms and contributing to the county library's reading program for pre-schoolers. supervisors will have the final say on where the money is spent. let's start with temperatures in san francisco, 51 in westportal, that's the cool spot. we have about 55 in the financial district. in the kas tree 53. richmond and belmont along with union city and tracy. petaluma and santa clara, about 51 degrees. here's the high temperatures today. 61 at half moon bay. 64 to 68 around the bay and 67 to 70 in our inland neighborhood so a little rebound from yesterday. you can see the san mateo bridge dry looking busy as we look westbound. a little breezy on the east/west bridges. breezy and choppy for a ferry ride. mass transit no worries. here's 280 at 17th down the san

6:41 am
switching issues near van ness so that's delayed between van ness and castro. they're saying you should consider alternate routes and alternate means of transportation at this point because the delays are getting so long at this point so i'll keep an eye on that. we'll check drive times next. >> we tell you all the time about how thieves are targeting people's mail. now you have a way to fight back. how you can see what's in your mail before it gets delivered. >> imagine seeing this flying overhead? how a silicon valley company plans to elevate your commute. >> and this high-speed chase in southern california coming to an end. the car just stopping. police opening -- we'll have -- i think they have opened fire on this vehicle. this vehicle. we are going t
