12:02 pm
but had anytime from our experience when there are this many rounds fired at these two adult men it's likely they were the focus of attention of we don't believe it's random. >> in terms of an immediate threat to the public with these people on the loose, you don't believe necessarily there is a threat to anyone else at this point. >> reporter: no we didn't believe that. we believe that energy was focused towards these two adult males. >> reporter: sergeant, thank you very much. when we were here earlier, we did have occasion to talk to and actually see the mother of one of the victims. this is videotape was taken before this mother knew that her son had passed away. so that is the situation there. she did offer us some words as well but again, before she was aware that her son had died. so that's the situation here in berkeley. police do not believe that there is any immediate threat to the public although they are looking for two men who they believe were the shooters in

12:06 pm
deadly explosion and fire in san bruno. pg&e answered questions for two hours from mayors, jackie speier in a closed-door meeting. they learned that because the pipes are all of different diameters there is no easy way to evaluate them. they would have to go with pressure testing, taking large segment of pipeline out of service for long periods, a second concern there are inconsistent results on a stretch of pipe north of the san bruno runture . the mayors' third concern, pg&e's apparent contention that the age of the pipes is not a major factor in determining their integrity, that it's only important in 10% of the cases and jackie speier expressed frustration that federal authorities haven't determined a cause of the san bruno fire yet. >> i think there's just an ongoing frustration that we still don't know why the pipe exploded in the glenview area. and until we know why, it's hard to know what steps need to
12:07 pm
be taken to protect residents throughout the region. >> reporter: pg&e is expected to have a more complete review of its pipeline network to the puc by december. now, reporters asked the pg&e representative for comment after the meeting and she said no and referred us to a phone number, which was the storm damage hotline. now this friday there's expected to be a town hall meeting at 6:30 at saint robert's catholic church in san bruno. members of the pg&e, puc and the ntsb all expected to attend. >> thank you. in other headlines in the bay area, investigators are looking into a suspicious fire at an apartment complex in hayward. 20 people had to evacuate when the fire broke out in the carport. nobody was hurt, but four cars were destroyed. one apartment unit was damaged the two teenagers accused of setting fire to a san jose school are expected to enter their pleas in court this afternoon. that fire at trace elementary school caused about $10 million

12:10 pm
while nothing can reverse copd, advair is different from most other copd medications because it contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator, working together to help you breathe better. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking advair. i had fun today, grandpa. you and me both. if copd is still making it hard to breathe, ask your doctor if including advair will help improve your lung function for better breathing. get your first full prescription free and save on refills. i'm among 30,000 employees who used to work for hp. i was supposed to retire there. carly fiorina changed all that. fiorina laid off 30,000 people and she shipped our jobs to china and india. i had to pack my bags and i was out the door that night.

12:12 pm
sense to get pediatricians involved when they see babies at 2 weeks for wellness checkups. reporter: when molly gave birth to her son five years ago, it was not a joyful moment. the new mom had feelings of regret and guilt. she suffered from postpartum depression. >> i was anxious. i thought i made a terrible mistake. >> reporter: one in four women suffers depression after birth. the condition is damaging for mothers as well as baby, which shows that it can harm the infant's development. >> there is severe depression in mothers the babies are not as interactive or verbal. they can grow up being depressed. >> reporter: the american academy of pediatrics is now recommending pediatricians start screening new moms for depression. a doctor looks to see if a mother is affectionate. >> watch out for the ones who are not happy about a new baby or the ones who are not eating or sleeping. don't be afraid to ask how they are doing. >> reporter: the academy urges pediatricians to recommend counseling if mother seems depressed. the doctor thinks it's a good
12:13 pm
line of defense. >> pediatricians are in a unique position to screen for postpartum depression because they see mothers so frequently. >> reporter: she went to a psychiatrist and was diagnosed with postpartum depression. she started her own support group to help other moms struggling with the condition. postpartum depression is the most common complication of childbearing affecting 25% of new mothers. pediatricians are encouraged to ask mothers 10 questions to screen for depression at the well baby check-ups including the 1, 2, 4, 6 month visits an easy way to screen for a serious condition. >> seems like it would do a world of good. kim, thanks. coming up, what your cable company doesn't want you to know. how you can get free hi-def tv just about anywhere. and you don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars to sit in the bleachers? the game plan in the works to let you see the world series action up close. ,,

12:19 pm

12:20 pm
alameda and 65 in san leandro and hayward. 64 kentfield and san rafael and san anselmo. and the mid-60s from petaluma to sonoma to napa to 67 in fairfield. moving down close to the city 62 in san francisco an 63 in sausalito. bear in mind it's going to be breezy around the bay so it's going to feel a little cooler than the lower 60s. here we go. tomorrow, more sunshine expected. chance of showers in the forecast thursday, friday and saturday. temperatures will be cooling down and then sunday and monday, more sunshine expected. not like i had to tell you this but game one will be tomorrow. conditions upper 50s as the san francisco giants take on the texas rangers. >> partly cloudy we can handle that. >> barbecue! >> we can handle that, too. thanks, tracy. have some breaking news for you in the oscar grant case right now. prosecutors are asking the judge for prison sentence for the former bart officer who
12:21 pm
shot grant. a jury convicted him of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting in 2009. the defense had requested probation. in the court filing prosecutors didn't say how much prison time it wants the judge to issue. mehserle does face up to 14 years behind bars and his sentencing is set for november 5, a week from friday. good thing the yankees lost because some folks could miss out on the world series because of a fight between cablevision and fox. some 3 million subscribers have been blacked out of fox programming for 10 days now. apparently both companies trying to settle this fee dispute by tomorrow but as tracy said, game one of the giants rangers series is tomorrow. not having cable may not be such a problem if you have the right device. on the consumerwatch, julie watts shows us how you can get hd quality tv without cable. >> reporter: ah, hd. an industry game changer.
12:22 pm
but with the high price of cable these days, getting that crystal clear picture can cost you a pretty penny. >> is she 20? >> $89? >> that's a lot! >> yeah. cable's expensive. >> reporter: well, here's a little known secret that your cable company probably won't like. you can get a picture as good as hd with no strings or cable attached. >> technology moved ahead and digital tv makes this possible with really good results. >> reporter: cnet's brian cooley points to the growing number of portable televisions that pick up local channels over the airwaves with a crystal clear digital picture. it's a big business that works because it comes in a small package. >> because the screen is small, it's easy to make a picture look good on a small screen. it's big screen at home that's a tougher challenge. so this doesn't even need hd nor does it get it to look great. >> reporter: but we all remember the old portable tvs with the grainy flickering picture. so we decided to put this tv to the test. we got a great picture outside with this 3.5" avio from radioshack, but to keep a
12:23 pm
clear picture we did have to hold it still. we found similar mini dtvs on best like the axion and koby. and brian cooley says, this is just the beginning. cell phone companies are now starting to design phones with a built-in dtv. >> anyone who thought portable tv doesn't work, try it again because now it does. >> reporter: he admits the mini tvs aren't for everyone. but for those looking to save a few bucks... >> i'd look into it. >> some prefer to watch the big game on the big screen. >> that's cool. julie watts, cbs 5. ,,,,,,
12:24 pm
dentures are softer than teeth. and a lot of people, when they get a denture, they think the best way to clean it is by brushing it with toothpaste. toothpaste contains abrasives that scratch dentures, leaving microscopic crevices where bacteria can grow, and bacteria can cause bad breath. the best way to go is to soak them in polident. only polident is proven to clean without scratching and kills 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria. i recommend using polident and soak every day. it's the right way to go. after another. and another. just a dishonest politician, trying to hide his record of failure.
12:25 pm
the real brown plan? more spending on out-of-control state pensions. more favors for the big teachers union, blocking education reform. more job-killing taxes and regulations. more of the same old failure from sacramento. job killer jerry brown. always more taxes, more spending, and more lost jobs.
12:26 pm
okay, it's late october and there's still peaches in the market and let me give you the tip of the day regarding peaches. some peaches, the late variety crops that were picked just a little while ago are still good. but some peaches are coming out of cold storage and if you don't select them and store them right, they are going to be mealy and taste awful and you are going to throw away your money. let's make sure because about 50/50 out there. let me give you a tip. come over here. when you look at peaches right now you want to look something with nice color all the way around and firm. if it is soft that's a telltale sign that that peach has been stored for too long. firmer the better no shriveling. what you have to do this time year is store them on the counter for one to two days, that's it. if you wait until they get soft
12:27 pm
the late variety, they will get mealy. beginning of the summer midsummer they are fresh. but this variety is different. select and store them right to enjoy a great peach in october. otherwise, you might as well eat cardboard and i don't like to eat cardboard. i'm tony tantillo, your fresh grocer. and always remember to eat fresh and stay healthy. let me see if i picked a good one. >> see you at 5:00 and 6:00.
12:28 pm
