marcy gonzalez, abc news secaucus, new jersey. it is still not clear yet whether the macy's thanksgiving day parade will float its way through new york city tomorrow. it all depends on the wind. parade rules call for the balloons to be grounded if the winds are 23 miles per hour or higher. then organizers are going to make the call early tomorrow morning. even if they're green lighted to start, they can be grounded at any time if conditions change. every balloon has a wind speed monitor. they watch it very closely. with so many people nearby, they're big and they can be dapg russ. we'll see. we hope they can pull it off tomorrow. raising money for the varsity basketball coach tonight. jeff loving and his wife brenda put themselves in debt to bring home four orphaned children from ethiopia. shortly after they adopted the last two, brenda was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

say that. >> november 27, 1978, dan white, a former firefighter who was elected to the board of supervisors shot and killed the two men at city hall. he had resigned from the board earlier that month but now wanted his seat back. white was angry. then mosconi refused to reappoint him. he packed his gun and went to city hall. instead of going through the metal detectors, he slipped in through a door in the basement. willie brown was then a state assembly man meeting with mosconi in the mayor's office. he left just 45 seconds before white entered. >> we were having coffee and george as usual, sam, how do i just tell this guy it's over, et cetera, but i got to do it. i walked out, dan white walked in. >> brown would learn later he was also on white's death list. after he killed mosconi, white went to the supervisor's offices where he encountered harvey
milk. gay rights activists cleef jones had just met with milk that morning. >> i had been in city hall that morning and harvey sent me home to get a file i had left in my apartment. when i came back, i saw his body. >> chaos reigned. a tearful board of supervisor's president dianne feinstein broke the news to the public. tens of thousands -- an impromptu rally at city hall. chris mosconi is proud of his father's legacy, but most of all he misses him as a father. >> i'm so sad that he wasn't able to see us grow up and his grandkids. that's really what mattered to him was his friends and family. >> white turned himself in to police, he was tried on first degree murder charges. his defense successfully argued that the acts were caused by severe depression and blaming junk food, that's why it was known as the twinkie defense. the jury convicted of him of
voluntary manslaughter, a highly unpopular decision. he served some time and was paroled and later committed suicide. vic lee, abc 7 news. we have a developing story in southern california where a gunman remains barricaded inside a home. it happened in englewood. two officers responded to a call of a man beating a 14-year-old girl just after noon today. when officers arrived, police say the man began shooting. a male officer was struck in the chest but his vest saved his life. he is in stable condition tonight. police confirm the gunman is inside a home and holding two female hostage, one much whom may be a minor. he is refusing to surrender and the neighborhood is locked down. this has been going on for much of the day. police cited six people for disrupting business at the port of oakland today. officers moved dozens of independent truckdrivers and their supporters away from entrances to the port this morning. the demonstrators are pushing for better pay and they're also
looking for financial help to buy new or upgraded trucks in order to comply with new state air quality standards that go into effect january 1st. oakland mayor said the port and other agencies allocated $38 million to help cover the cost of those upgrades. the dna testing company, 23 and me, is countering a warning letter it received from the food and drug administration. the fda demanded that 23 and me immediately discontinue marketing its dna testing kits expressing concern that they could return inaccurate results and lead consumers to undergo unnecessary health procedures. co-founder, sent a letter to 23 and me customers saying "we have worked extensively with our lab partners to make sure that the results we return are accurate." she also says the company stands by its results. the san francisco food bank
is in dire need of donations. it could literally emergency help. paramedics from american medical response arrived by ambulance and dropped off not patients but three barrels full of donated food. they collected it by asking for contributions outside a supermarket last weekend. now, even with this donation, the san francisco food bank is still below its fundraising goal of $8 million for this year. if you'd like to help, they are especially looking for cash donations. that's very powerful because $1 donated can turn into $5 of purchased food. cash helps them in a significant way. carving the turkey can be intimidating. imagine doing it for more than 3,000 people. that was a job for dozens of san francisco firefighter and police officer volunteers. for more than 50 years, they've helped the salvation army carve hundreds of turkeys for the thanksgiving dinner program. joining in, mayor ed lee and the police and fire chiefs this

in and was very moved by hearing about you and they're actually going to take care of your procedure for you. >> the doctor surprised the family with the news by skype. they were overwhelmed. william's life started changing the moment he sat up on the operating table. >> i looked around the room and i looked through the window. there was nina and everything was just so vibrant, it was so bright. he was able to see me and smiling. i knew that he could see so much better. on the way home, he was reading the signs on the freeway and reading the license plates to me. i was like, you're big a kid. >> william is an in-home care-giver for nina's brother beau. beau and the family wanted to share a sign made by the little ones. it's a beautiful message to the anonymous donor and to the doctor. thank you for saving our daddy's sight. >> i wish i knew the person and was able to invite them over for
thanksgiving and say come sit with us. >> you gave me the gift of sight, you gave me the gift before christmas. it's a beautiful thing. >> cheryl jennings, abc 7 news. fantastic end to that story. william fleming is filling out applications for new career opportunities now that his vision is restored. to find out more about this disease that he suffered from, go to abc 7 news.com. we have a lot more information on it for you. coming up next on abc 7 news at 9:00, michael finney teams up exclusively with consumer reports to review the must have reports to review the must have
