canadian highway. everything looks fine until a big rig loses a dash board camera caught what could have been a major accident. a big rig loses control comes crashes through the center divide into on coming traffic it narrowly missed another big rig and the car that caught it on camera, the truck driver was charged with careless driving. yikes. >> no kidding. all right let's move to another continent. australia, where catastrophic flooding is spreading to the southeast, a lake about 55 miles long is expected to continue moving in the coming week toward a small town of swan hill in the state of victoria. the town of 10,000 people sits in the junction of two rivers already swollen from flooding record rains in australia began more than a month ago in the northeast. 30 people have died in flooding

7:41 am
there is a very dense fog pattern in the central valley itself, and some of that energy is making its way into the carcenas straight here and will produce cooling in the interior here as the dense fog will be a factor the next few days for the valley. we are not looking for any at the coast mostly sunny and warm as we have seen outside by mid- week though we will look for the coastal fog machine to kick into gear that will bring us grey matter. high clouds drifted across the region cleared out, leaving us high and dry. haze out there yesterday and today as we see this high pressure system parked off central california, now we are getting a few clouds moving by to our north but for the greater bay area, patchy fog in the interior this morning, offshore winds, keeping things clear across the peninsula and continued dry through the week. now with this high pressure system, comes the sinking air
7:42 am
mass, stagnant. air pattern, air quality will suffer as a result of that type of a pattern, moderate air quality throughout the bay for the next several days by mid- week we should see more of an on shore breeze bringing the fog back to the coast but clear out air quality mix things up a little bit and conditions will improve through the end of the week temperature wise close to where we were yesterday cooling in the carcenas straights as i mention low 60s as we see fog working its way back into the bay offshore breeze out of the north that will bring valley fog back into the area. north valley here, 70 santa rosa, near 70 san jose, mid- to upper 60s. and around the bayou can't beat that adds we will see lots of sunshine increasing clouds expected through the week as once again we get more of a fog pattern developing here. it kicked back into gear by mid- week both in the valley and
7:43 am
coast. we will see some cooling, until then high and dry for the next several days. >> last night was incredible. north beach and china town, people were out in shirt sleeves and it is january and you can see the look on the tourists faces. >> we are so lucky. >> summer time is here. >> thanks for that jim. >> you bet. >> time to talk president's days before the 50th anniversary of john f kennedy's inaugural speech. >> i spoke with willie brown and we talked about kennedy the reality the myth and also the democratic need for dynasties like the kennedys. let's give a listen. >> you don't go back to the democrats, any further back realistically than the kennedys and you chart those years even though the jump in years may have been more productive substantively, civil rights, voter rights act, the poverty
7:44 am
program you still go back to the kennedyit is because as a nation and as a people, we are into inspirational presentations, productivity, necessarily and kennedy was that. >> same as can be said for the republicans again, you neuron nailed regan in the years that -- you neuron nailed regan in the years that followed him. and also remember that regan's entire thrust even when governor was that government shouldn't do anything so his legacy is the dismantling of government the nonparticipation of government while doing it with style and while doing it in a manner that must be the envy of sarah palin in that whole crowd because he did not generate negative reactions to his dismantling government and condemning government. >> did he dismantle government?
7:45 am
>> he did not he could not he knew that there was no way democrats were only out of power briefly as a matter of fact 1986 democrats came back into power in the middle to have regan revolution therefore he never had a chance i don't even think he tried. >> let's go back to the kennedys then reality versus methodology. they did not get civil rights passed lynnden johnson got it passed. they did not create great society it was lbj but they did invade cuba. >> we all know when we talk about the kennedy years, the only thing we can highlight is his crisis management of weapons that were being moved and we applaud him. >> cuban missile crisis. >> correct.
7:46 am
>> and berlin. now what is it about that that has been such a propellant in the democratic party, no convention is complete without some kennedy speaking there what is it about that? >> because again, it is the symbol we all love camelot all love the idea of this full head of hair young man the sailor, this daring, dashing man with this beautiful wife. >> and bob diand ted. >> that's correct and they were all incredibly bright or at least, iterring sense made them bright the whole business surrounding the late ted kennedy you recall he went off that bridge. >> right mary joe -- >> there was never any long range associated with that because we reference his great presentation on health care that didn't pass until obama
7:47 am
came along. >> what is it about the democratdynasties, whether it is the longs of louisiana, the birds. >> the browns of california. >> the cuomos of new york. what is it? >> just part of our heritage we really do hold on to those imaginary figures we hold more on the substantive side than they were capable of that is who we are we love to talk about the kennedys more importantly, bill clinton is becoming bigger and bigger and bigger, and more productive, on the inspirational side it is like a cult he comes to town let's say, sales and there is a scramble for the private opportunity after he finishes his gig to talk about and sit at his feet as he puts
7:48 am
on flip flops and a sweater and tells stories that may or may not be true. >> well, it is not necessarily the democrats holding dynasties what about the bushes? >> that remains to be seen. we have president bush and the son but i don't know if they have the allure you notice when the republican conventions roll around it is not like they are upfront and center. democrats much bigger on this a fluke of american politics party of the people loves the glamour. >> who doesn't love a little glamour. >> there we go. >> thanks for that input very interesting. nontraditional approach to children's education. >> once a month, we are going to draw a picture of ourselves. and each time we do it, we are going to do it in a different way. >> just ahead we will speak with this veteran teacher who helped bust the trend, a new

7:53 am
it is langanitis. >> it is in west marin, heading toward samuel p taylor park you pass through our valley it is a rural valley has a school district with 300 students, and in the 70s, the school board agreed with the general community to have programs of choice so there are three elementary school programs a month sorry program, a wall door of program and open -- waldorf program and open classroom. >> what is different versus classrooms down the street. >> all are humanistic, holistic approaches all talk about teaching the whole child they are different approaches to that but what is different about the open classroom is the level of parent participation probably, and the amount of choice that students have. >> is the amount of participation greater in this
7:54 am
sort of nonipara divisional setting. >> it is a parent participation program parents are in the classroom every day parents agree to be in the classroom basically about once a week they have choices and they can do other things. >> when we do stories on education, time and time again whether it is an issue of funding we talk about, we talk about curriculum, it seems like the common denominator is pair rent participation. >> that is not always possible in a lot of districts you have working parents, people who can't spend their day in the classroom. >> involving parents doesn't necessarily mean they are in the classroom and i think that every community wants to have -- there is a way and they want to be involved in their children's education and don't necessarily feel welcome but when they are welcome they find ways to be there. we visited in the process of making this film we have visited a lot of inner city schools, we have visited or
7:55 am
talked on the phone with many educators not in rural settings like ours who feel this is not something simply to have -- >> to use a similar model. >> a big difference to what was going on in your classroom you were bucking the standardized testing, most schools around the country are doing, no child left behind how were you able to do it? >> california has a provision that says parents can opt their children out of standardized testing they are right and parents who chose our employee gram chose a pro -- program chose a program that was noncompetitive we have a lot of meetings and talks where parents discuss what is important in the way of education and one thing that is important to them is that their children move at the rate that they are moving at, not being pushed to be in a single
7:56 am
pattern. and so, a lot of them didn't want their children involved in high stakes testing and they opted them out. that is something our school board agreed with. >> how have they done when they moved on into the secondary or high school levels. >> they do very well. our students almost all go to college. almost no body drops out of school. and they are represented in -- whenever you look at what is happening in the high schools our kids are over represented as being good students. >> it must have been interesting spending that much time in a classroom with these young children and parents, getting this whole thing together what was it like? >> well, for me fascinating because i got a real glimpse -- an in depth glimpse all the things a teacher is involved in and appreciation for depth and complexity of education when you recognize individual kids and trying to get them involved
7:57 am
and excited about education. >> finally are you going to stay involved they said this is your last class what are you doing now? >> ever since i retired i have been working with tom on this film he shot 300 hours on this film and we are making an 88 minute film that took a lot of time but i have continued to subin the district and i volunteered, the little shot you had about the garden, once a week i come in and help out in the garden and hang out with the kids. >> i had a feeling you weren't going to let it go. >> once a teacher always a teacher the documentary is going to be premiering this week in san raphael. >> thursday evening. >> at 7:00 p.m. and it is at san raphael film center, right? for more information or purchase a copy or host your own screening go to august to, or go to our own website and click on the links and numbers i got through that. see that? >> very good everybody looking for creative ways to teach in

8:07 am
question is, regarding the bonuses and a lot of that had to do with incentive corn that rewarded employees for past things. this was looking backwards and rewarding performance for the previous year. >> was there something in the contract did you have a choice? >> not really actually you are right to point that out we don't have a choice if you agree with an employee a part of their compensation plan will be incentive compensation if they have met those targets they deserve to be paid out. >> uc like a lot of institutions, with high pay as well county government, they are caught in a time lapse. these problems are coming home to roost or these commitments are coming at a time when you are asking more and more people to do more with less the average uc employee is getting wages cut, hours cut, getting
8:08 am
their benefits cut and they pick up and find out why were you giving these things out. >> first of all you need to focus in on the areas in which they were given out the medical centers have a broad base inside this plan that rewards dozens if not hundreds of employees for doing things like saving the medical center money and a lot of that bonus money if you will went to those employees who were looking at the bottom line second area, was in the area of investment management these are extremely complex organizations and the investment professionals that we have manage an incredible amount of resources on behalf of the university and retirees, there are employees where the market dictates we have to provide a certain portion of their income in incentive compensation. >> does it dictate that in this job climate do we need to go above and beyond? >> absolutely if you think of the size of the university of
8:09 am
california investment portfolio it is in the billions of dollars, it is directly compared to the pension plans, and large endowments of any of the largest organizations in the world and we need top investment professionals on that money. >> okay speaking of our great investors and all their top notch jobs they are doing, none the less uc continues to be sinking into red ink what is the next headline going to be. >> probably what is the biggest headline this month we will expect a $500 million decrease in our budget, or die vestment from the state of california, that is a huge number that will be something we will have to wrestle with in the next couple meetings. >> do you see fees going up? >> i do. i think a lot of regents don't want to see fees. when you have a billion dollar budget cap, not only 500 million the state has taken away from the next budget cycle
8:10 am
but costs are going up. >> do you see classes being cut it takes 5 years or more to get a degree. >> i think all options are on the table and this is something the public of california has to ask themselves do they want a university of california with fewer students being admitted into the institution with larger class sizes, lower -- higher ratios, they have to step in here. >> final question if all things are on the table does that include the bonuses we are reading about? >> absolutely if you look in the last three years we went from 70 bonus plans down to three we are in the that direction. >> okay and phil said final question but i have my own how much do you make derek? >> as a regent? >> nothing i am an active donor to university of california and i encourage all other alumna to donate to the uc. >> talking about that final question. did he pay you to ask that thank you derek for coming in.

8:16 am
park stationary off central california coast today an offshore breeze resulting in clear skies, along the beaches here, and warmer than normal temperatures, lookout there across the central valley a dense fog layer we are looking at along the i-5 corridor and southbound, check out the sunrise this morning, obviously we are looking to the east, that dense fog will circulate its way into the bay through the day today adding cooling there, in places like fairfield, concord, vallejo, possibly napa but the rest of the area will be mostly sunny and warm as we see looking outside this morning, that trend will continue into the beginning of the week a few high clouds, gone for now, we are looking at lots of blue sky out there, high pressure system keeping the storm track well to our north for the last week looks like it will continue to do that through the end of january here. we will continue high and dry, a little patchy fog forming, several fog machines at work
8:17 am
here central valley fog working into the delta and by mid-week coastal fog starting to form. today though, offshore winds, keep coastal sections and greater bay area clear continue dry for the foreseeable future long mid-winter break may have a month long of dry weather. high pressure system in place sinking air mass makes for stagnant mixing in the atmosphere moderate air quality here for the next couple days temperatures today cooling as i mentioned in the delta, low 60s as fog sneaks in from the east otherwise mid- to upper 60s across the bay low 70s in the interior valleys, north and south, and as we see amex of fog out there, valley fog, switch it -- a mix of fog out there, valley fog, switch it around gradual cool down through the week but subtle, not looking for anything dramatic you may note no rain
8:18 am
drops in this picture whatsoever. we are going to continue into february on the dry side and right now, i don't see any rain in the forecast could be another two weeks before we start to see moisture ahead in our direction. >> i love this place beautiful spring weather in january and then when it is spring it will be cold winter it is warm and summer. >> you know it. >> but we can go ahead and enjoy these warm temps. we have already been so much above our normal rainfall total we don't have to feel bad. >> historically whenever we get a lot of rain early we get a big break around january. >> we will take it. >> this you go. >> coming up, it is 8:19 a.m. how would the move effect moral. >> why many oakland cops would not be too sad to see their chief if he decides to move. in a day after wild overtime victory, can warriors

san jose... and san francisco ves fast to welcome back. some oakland cops would not be sad if the current chief leaves for san jose and san francisco's mayor moves quickly to attack pension reform. two items in the matier and ross column this morning. >> oakland police officers say the chief if he does move to san jose, well, so long and so well. this is even as city officials are ringing their hands over the possibility of losing him he was very popular with the public doesn't have that much of a command when it comes to the beat cops they view him as a show boat, using oakland as a stepping stone to bigger and better things they said he has done little to improve command staff or strengthen relations with city hall and said he
8:22 am
