6:14 am
is serious and could mean drastic change fors is serious and could mean drastic change for for your use correct. >> we are looking at a lot of options, one is to eliminate service to gilroy, eliminate service only the weekends, eliminating some service on trains during the midday. >> a lot of folks use caltrain to commute to and from work or sool. so school. some folks use it to head to giants games, for example. are those routes on the chopping block as well? >> if we look at eliminating weekend service, that includes service to the giants games. we have about 200,000 people who use caltrain to go to special events last year. that's quite a few people. >> so, i guess my question is, you know, folks who use you to get around -- use caltrain to get around on a daily basis, they would know about these
6:15 am
meetings. are you urging folks who are occasional users to show up as well? >> we want comments from all of our riders, that includes our occasional riders. >> the things on the table, 25 cent fare hike, getting some of those off-peak routes. >> that's right right. >> okay. and how many users do you have using caltrain from gilroy up north? >> that's about 700 people who use the stations on the gilroy expension. >> so, quite a few people. you expecting good turnout? have you done this before? >> we have done these meetings before. ysh yes, we are expecting a good turnout. caltrain riders have strong opinions and we're looking forward to hearing that. >> even if folks don't use caltrain, if folks don't have the option to use caltrain that could mean congestion down the road. thank you so much, christine
6:16 am
dunn for joining us today. i know it will be a long day for with you those meetings tonight. >> thank you. now from a sticky financial situation to a stinky one. specifically an unpleasant odor at san jose airport's renovated terminal a. passengers don't smell it in the lobby, but in the offices the sewer-like stench is so persistent and so bad sometimes workers have to leave the building. airlines are said to be threatening to withhold thousands of dollars in monthly rent until the problem is fixed. but fixing the problem is easier said than done. the city has run cameras through the plumbing lines to fix minor leaks but things still stink back there. let's look at the roads as you drive your kids to school today. it is possible that the lines you see are temporary markers and may not be road safe. here's why. there is a nationwide shortage of road paint. so once a road is repaved it looks like this, nice, smooth,
6:17 am
dark and black. then painted with temporary stripes that cost the city thousands of dollars in product and labor and they just have to be redone when the road paint becomes available. perhaps even worse is the fact that many question whether these lin lines keep their neighborhoods safe enough. >> i wonder if and when something is going to happen. >> this happens to be an intersection where people will tend to kind of slide on through. >> california stop? >> california stop. hollywood stop. yeah. >> engineers say the paint backup could last for another year. they say if you have any worries or concerns about the temporary markings where you live, you should call the department of transportation. facebook adding the ultra hot check-in product to its list of features, but not everyone is thrilled with the idea. >> the idea is popular, four square was popular, continues to be popular. you tell your friends where you are through a smartphone.
6:18 am
facebook calls its new service called places. the announcement was announced wednesday afternoon. now, the aclu, which has always been a critic of facebook, immediately voiced its concern over privacy issues. facebook did build a privacy feature into the new service. you have to opt in. but the company has a long string of privacy stumbles. facebook's press conferences were live blogged and podcast and tweeted much the way that apple's big announcements are. it is sort of the new way of covering technology where the event itself becomes as important as the thing being announced. bloggers start covering each other as news. >> don't you think reporters should be covering afghanistan and real subjects? >> there's a lot of people here. >> this is like check-in. 9,000 reporters for check-in. right? >> something like that. >> do you think that's right? >> i think that's right. >> of course we're big losers because we're here. these facebook people are nervous we're here. it's like the invasion of the reporters. >> keeps them on their toes. >> 9,000 is a bit of an
6:19 am
exaggeration. it was a lot. it's hard to tell how many reporters are in afghanistan covering the war. embedded, probably in the 350 range. we may not have our priorities straight. >> and facebook adding this feature that someone else has pioneered, they have done this before. they take what somebody else does, bring it into the fold and do it maybe better. >> microsoft used to do that. they were accused of not inventing anything, but incorporating things. >> i'm glad to hear the opt out is automatically built in. >> thank you very much. it is a big day for some 1300 people who will become u.s. citizens this morning. they will take the oath of allegiance in oakland at 10:00 a.m. the ceremony will include talks about local fifth grade essay contest winners who wrote on the

subject why i'm glad a nation is a group of immigrants. staff from the alameda county registrar's office will be at the a's game tonight passing out pamphlets and answering questions about a new type of voting that will debut in berkeley, oakland and san leandro in november. the registrar's office wants to make sure people know how to vote properly using the new rank choice ballot. they will be outside the coliseum from 4:30 to 7:30 today. >> there is an a's game tonight that could cause some congestion. >> i'm sure that's why the folks are there to talk about the voting, as well. peak traffic time. 7:05 game. past the coliseum, there it is. a beautiful flow of traffic here. let me show you the live shot. that's what you want to see is the volume of traffic going through the area. holding steady for the last 20 minutes. northbound with these taillights around high street, heading up to downtown. no delays now north or

6:28 am
furlough fridays come back tomorrow. we'll tell you why. and there's something in the air. san jose's new airport terminal smells and employees are none too happy about it. >> and the last combat troops are out of iraq. we'll have a live report from nitt.ep
6:29 am
6:30 am
u.s. combat troops are out of iraq. we'll have a live report from kuwait on this historic occasion. and something stinks at san jose international airport. good morning. thanks for joining us. i'm kris sanchez in for laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm garvin thomas in for brent. the top stories in a moment. first a check of traffic and weather. >> we are seeing a lighter volume of traffic overall. a lot of schools getting in
6:31 am
session this week. a lot of folks i heard from said thursday is the day they're taking off. a lighter volume through livermore. westbound 580 holding at 17 minutes drive from the altamont pass over to the dublin interchange. that's better than we've seen all week. the bay bridge toll plaza, a light volume of traffic there. no metering lights registering yet. all the previous three days this week, it's been turned on by now. we have the low clouds hovering around. ria, this is a bit higher than i've seen in the past few days. >> there are clouds out there, but they're high. today we will be a couple degrees warmer than yesterday. 54 in san francisco. 59 in san jose. a couple degrees cooler than yesterday in most spots. more coming up. back to you guys. for the first time in more than seven years, all u.s. combat troops are out of iraq. nbc's richard engle rolled across the border into iraq
6:32 am
with -- out of iraq with the final major brigade to move out. he is live with us this morning from kuwait, of course we're halfway around the world so we do have a bit of a delay. thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> is my pleasure. you have been there almost from the very beginning what was it like as you rolled out of iraq and into kuwait with those troops this morning? >> i'm now in kuwait. we went with the 4-2 striker brigade based in ft. lewis, washington. these were the last combat troops, the last troops assigned specifically to a combat mission in iraq. there were 440 of them traveling in 68 of these armored big strikers like you see behind me. it was a mission that was code named "the last patrol" and that's very much what it felt like. they were driving down the main road of iraq on their way to kuwait.
6:33 am
they were driving about 45 miles per hour. spaced apart. and then very early in the -- before dawn hours, they crossed into kuwait. there were a few soldiers standing and saluting them. it feels like we reached a turning point. 50,000 american troops will remain in iraq to train the army and train the police but not on a specific combat mission. >> now, richard, this is the main highway. that means this is the main highway where a lot of u.s. servicemen have lost their lives. ieds, sniper fire. you have been on some of those missions along with them. how is this mood different as they were leaving and did they think that it was mission accomplished? >> it was a -- the phrase
6:34 am
mission accomplice ekoccomplish so politically charged that people in uniform don't use it. yesterday there was not a single shot fired. there were no ieds, the strikers were loaded. they had their protective equipment on to prevent ieds, but it wasn't necessary. there were no threats at owl or incidents. what a difference to when american combat troops first entered this country going the opposite direction from kuwait to baghdad in full battle mode. now driving down the main highway, weaving in and out of iraqi traffic, no shots fired. >> no shots fired. were there folks along the way seeing you off on your way? iraqis? >> not -- it wasn't a parade, so people didn't line the streets. most of iraq, particularly along this highway, is desert.
6:35 am
so, there weren't that many people. it's a road used primarily by truckers doing long hauls, bringing equipment and supplies from kuwait up to the main cities of iraq. when there were overpasses or bridges, we did see iraqi forces, some of them there were waving good-bye. some of them there were helping to coordinate security along the route. but there weren't throngs of people standing by the side of the road. >> you're going back to afghanistan now after this, right? >> well, i don't exactly know. i never really do. i will be here for -- covering the departure of these troops, and then probably make back to new york. then i will get my deployment orders, and i think they will likely say afghanistan on them. >> all right. thank you very much, richard engle. thanks for not only bringing us just the story from there but how our troops are feeling as we watch them from home.
6:36 am
and we kn thanks, richard. something doesn't smell right at the san jose international airport. some workers are complain being a disgusting smell that reportedly linger force hours inside the newly renovated terminal a. kimberly tere is live at san jose international airport. kimberly, do you smell anything this morning? >> reporter: i don't smell anything. that's probably because the smell is pose supposedly confi the offices and not the terminal area where passengers are allowed. aparentally, according to one airline manager, it's similar to being inside an outhouse. a spokesman said it has been extremely difficult to track down the order. they say they are doing everything they can, every day working with contractors to fix this problem. he said if it was an easy fix, it would have been done a long
6:37 am
time ago. they suspect it is done in the plumbing or some part of construction that wasn't done properly in the newly renovated terminal a. they have new utilities tied in with old utilities so this is a complex puzzle. they have done physical inspections, sent cameras down, smoke tests looking for leaks. the biggest obstacle is the odor comes and go randomly. so airport officials think they fixed the problem, odor returns in a few days. this has been a problem for the last several months, and some airline officials are so fed up they are said to be threatening to withhold rent until the problem gets cleared up. the airport spokesperson says he has not heard from any of the airlines about this. again, as i mentioned, so far the smell is confined to the office areas of the terminate. according to airport officials. so far no complaints from any of the passengers. live in san jose, kimberly tere,
6:38 am
nbc bay area news. >> thank you very much. and the markets are open, but with the news of a big takeover, scott mcgrew has a check of both. >> the markets will be exciting today. it's been a long string of losses generally as we watch -- man, look at all those action heroes on wall street. all kinds of things going on today. marvel, the chipmaker, will report profits. hewlett-packard reports profits as well. you have intel buying mac afcaf. intel will buy mcafee for more than $7 billion. about $48 a share. a 60% increase from where mcafee closed yesterday. if you are a mcafee shareholder, you are in the money this morning. intel buying mcafee for more
6:39 am
than $7.5 billion. all of this has to go through mcafee shareholders, but i doubt they will leave that money on the table. >> furlough fridays are back. the california supreme court says it will review a lower court's ruling that banned a new round of mandatory days off. starting tomorrow state workers will be forced to take three unpaid days off per month. it means it will save the state $150 million per month. the furloughs will be in effect until the court issues a ruling or until lawmakers approve a budget. time is now 6:39. time to check the traffic. mike this is the second time this week, we had an incident on highway 17. >> i'm getting more details now, but initial reports, it will cause slowing because reports of a big rig partially blocking the slowing this is 17 over the

summit. the big rig is off the roadway, partially in the slow lane and it sounds like the driver got out with his dog and is with his dog on the side of the road. if that's what you see, that will be a big distraction for folks. we will let folks know what's going on. no slowing now. that volume continues to build heading through that portion of the south bay. northbound 101, slowing coming up from tully past the airport. holding steady, speeds in the 50s. averaging around 50, 51 through the area. two events downtown, the circus and, of course, the concerts in town as well. we have an accident northbound 880, auto mall parkway. a look at sunol, 680 coming through this area. low clouds are there but not causing an issue. slowing starting in the southbound direction, but east bay pretty smooth. >> thank you very much. and now let's check in with ria taormina who has our temperatures right now. they look just about the same all around.
6:41 am
>> it doesn't change very much in these early morning hours. still in the mid 50s, low 50s. 54 in san francisco. by 8:00 in the morning, things are not warping up much. by lunch time, things will warm up. about 10 to 12 degrees. 61 in san francisco. 73 in san jose. and hopefully getting close to 80 as the day goes on in san jose. if you are thinking about taking a trip, 82 in l. a. 103 in vegas. monterey, a bit cooler, mid 60s or so. and sacramento, 89 degrees. that will be among the warm spots. south lake tahoe, 77. a look at the seven-day forecast. today is the nicest day of the next couple. the weekend will be cooling off into the 70s. get outside and enjoy. >> all right. thank you very much. time is now 6:41. a bull runs wild in the stands. we have video you will want to see. and new developments in the
6:42 am
gulf. see why crews are look at other ways to kill the leaking well. and first, keeping our kids safe at school hatezoolic a look wthat police are doing next.
6:43 am
6:44 am
the school bells are ringing all across the bay area. that means you need to be a bit more careful on the road, especially in the school zones. mike inouye is the only reporter
6:45 am
getting out on the streets to find out how drivers are driving past the schools. >> parents are driving, but they're the ones bringing the kids to school, we are all in a rush in the morning. the problem is not just speed, though that plays a big factor. sometimes you can't spe sometimes it's speed, but also the kids crossing the streets in front of the zone. here is a car parked in a passenger loading zone. there that is an abandoned car in that zone, so what that does that do? clogs everything. officially an abandoned vehicle not illegally parked this is a loading zone, meaning no one should be leaving their car unattended. those spots are tempting because they are usually empty and usually right in front of the school, so they're the sweet spots. the crossing guard working here. this is miguel who we talked
6:46 am
about. a loading zone happens near the crosswalk. that would cause an issue for lower visibility as well. that's an issue for the area. we did hear from lieutenant monahan who tells us about the need to keep things clear through the area. >> abandon their car here, so what does that do? that has the trickle down effect. nobody else can drop off here because this guy has his car parked here. now these people are looking for other places to drop their kids off. they can't because these things will get clogged. that's why it's so important that everybody just tries to follow the engineering of what we already have established here between the department of transportation and the way they engineered it. the way we coordinated with the school district and then us out here trying to keep this flowing. you can see we narrowed this road. >> there you see the fan, is that is blocking this part of the roadway. we saw an earlier jeep pulled over partially to the side of the road. what lieutenant monahan is talking about, if you don't
6:47 am
fellow the engineering, use the loading zone, park illegally, don't even pull over all the way, that causes a ripple effect causing an unsafe crossing for the kids in the area. they have operation safe passage in place. they will increase awareness at trace elementary, and kids are required to cross the street between classes. i was really just surprised. i didn't expect that amount of impact, that much focus within a 15-minute span at the school. it was compressed over there. >> and folks are busy. we get distracted. just because you drop off your kids doesn't mean you should not pretend you have kids in the car. >> kids of everyone are the importance here. >> thank you very much. we will turn to developing news this time out of the gulf of mexico. bp and the u.s. coast guard are putting the relief well drilling on hold. kristen dahlgren is leading our continuing coverage of the disaster. any time we hear bp has a new plan, we all get a little
6:48 am
nervous. >> yeah, garvin. on day 122, really no surprise. admiral allen, the incident commander this morning, saying that it may now be september before they do that bottom kill. what he said is they flushed out what they have their now. they will be doing this pressure testing throughout today. the plan next is to remove the original drill bit that's been stuck down in that well. and then they plan to replace the blow-out preventer with a new one. the concern is that that static kill, they may have overdone it, getting cement into an area that could now block the bottom kill a bit. that would increase pressure and send it to some areas that are sort of weak links in the system that is there now. they hope the new blowout preventer would prevent that. yesterday allen said in his news conference that they are concerned and continue to be concerned about the vital signs of this well. perhaps a bit of unfortunate
6:49 am
phrasing there, but clearly there are still some concerns, so they're moving forward in a different direction than immediately doing that bottom kill again. they will be replacing the blow-out preventer and then the plan is to do the bottom kill after that. perhaps now maybe a little ways away. >> thank you very much. the world's largest chip company, intel, is spending a whole lot of cash. >> a whole lot of cash. more than $7 billion.
