retirement we are seeing figures that is simply eye popping. who is getting them even at a time of budget deficits. are. >> reporter: when it comes to pulling in the gold it's tough to beat the outgoing brass. the police chief received over $525,000 in her final year on the job. she got $187,000 in base play plus over $300,000 in unused sick, vacation and comp time that she had saved up over the years. that's on top of her $229,500 a year pension for life. and she wasn't alone. former deputy chief charles culhane received over $515,000 in her final year. $325,000 in sick time and various premium pays. and the commander clocked out at $425,000 in his final years.

6:02 pm
san francisco. bart cops were also among the highest paid when it came to special district workers. travis gibson, for example, earned $355,000 for his final year on the job plus pension. and commander maria white got $282,000 in her final year. and then got hired back as a contract employee. >> it is so difficult to be able to find police officers and presumably firefighters that, you know, we need to provide every incentive possible. >> public employee exceptions were never designed to be gold plated retirement security nets. >> now, it is interesting to note that as we said it is not just san francisco police. in fact, it is not just bart police. it also ex depends to a number of -- extends to a number of managers in jurisdictions around the state, whether it be for transportation or, for example, east bay utility, utility district where the general manager cashed out his final year $420,000, plus pension, plus vacation time when you clock that in. >> the golden ticket.
6:03 pm
this sounds like there ought to be a law kind of thing. the law should be changed. >> interesting, though, the law says that you have to pay for vacation and sick time accrued. but where it is up to the individual jurisdictions is to set those limits on how much you can, how often you can save it up and when you've got to cash it out. and as we heard in this piece right now, the controller in san francisco said it is a management issue and they have chosen not to do it. one of the questions is why? well, because the manager is getting it just as well as anybody else kind of thing. >> phil, thanks. >> dana. well, first, an explosion and then a massive fireball and a huge plume of smoke in contra costa county today. the blast happened at a utility station on walnut by puttnum boulevard. we received dramatic video of that explosion. we see what exactly happens. ann? >> reporter: a worker who was very close to that transformer
6:04 pm

6:05 pm
and many evacuated at about 7:00 this morning. >> hopped in the car and we are out of here within about 60 seconds. >> we just took off. and you could see just flames. >> reporter: unknown to many was that an east bay municipal utility district water pumping station was in their neighborhood. when demand is high like in the middle of summer it pumps water through the system. the part that exploded is essentially the power grid for the pumping station. the fire department says the plant lost power over the weekend and automatically switched over to a generator. and then the employees came to work this morning. >> they were in the process of trying to restore power to the facility. and during that operation something in the equipment failed and caused the fire to start. >> reporter: the spokesman says he cannot confirm that and says the cause of the fire is still mysterious and under investigation. we saw a sign touting an electrical improvement project but the spokesman didn't know if that was related to the fire either. >> we are going to do a thorough, a very thorough
6:06 pm
investigation. that's why i don't want to speculate. safety is important to the neighborhood but also for us for our employees. >> reporter: it looked frightening and smelled nasty. there were no hazardous materials like oil or pcbs. but like you might expect, neighbors have different reactions. >> these houses are too close to that in my honest opinion. >> just a fluke. i think it will be okay. >> reporter: this will not impact water delivery because frankly they don't use this pumping station very often. ever since the drought people have stopped using as much water. dana, they haven't needed to use this pump or electricity for more than a year and a half. >> that's good because it's not working now. >> no. right now it's debilitated. >> in walnut creek, ann, thank you very much. yet another fire near san francisco's castro district. this time arson fears may have actually saved lives. six people escaped this fire that burned two homes this morning. thanks to undercover police officers who banged on their
6:07 pm
doors. they were ought patrolling the area because of four recent suspicious fires just a mile away. but investigators say this latest fire was not arson. it was spontaneous combustion i invited by ration used to varnish a new deck and a fence at one of those homes. also in san francisco a driveby shooting in the mission district this morning. police say that the victim was standing on the sidewalk by la mission market on mission street near 17th when two people pulled up in a car and shot him in the back. the victim is expected to survive. police arrested two suspects. the detectives are investigating if it's gang related. well, freedom of speech that ignited racial tensions at a south bay high school went to court today. at issue teenagers who wore american flag t-shirts on cinquo de mayo. one side said the case should actually be dropped. >> reporter: that's right, allan a new year and semester at live oak high school.

6:09 pm
students. students' rights of first amendment free speech are not shed at the school house gates. >> reporter: attorneys and officials with the morgan hill unified school district who turned out when they saw our camera would not comment. but minutes earlier they argued to the curt that the case should be dropped since the principal who made the boys change their clothing has since retired. and because the district now has a more well defined policy when it comes to wearing patriotic clothing. the parents' attorney says that's not good enough. >> the policy hasn't been changed. the state officials who have moved on conveniently and gone to other jobs doesn't moot the issues in this case. >> reporter: the incident highlighted racial differences at the school and brought national media attention to morgan hill. >> this is america. and they should be able to wear an american flag any time they want. and somebody else could wear a mexican flag if they want. >> reporter: but questions over the need for a federal case
6:10 pm
remain. the local paper editorialized for dropping it. but the people we spoke with felt the community needs to have answers. >> i guess it probably should be decided by a judge. i am sure it is something that is probably going do come up every cinque de mayo. go away and come back again just like any issue does. >> reporter: federal judge james wear who is wearing the arguments today did not many make a decision on this allan. he is taking it under consideration and will issue his ruling some time in the coming days or even weeks. >> thanks. welcome to beverly hills. you have arrived. >> and now you're leaving. the latest sign of hard times, even in beverly hills. >> could a world expo be returning to the bay area? i will tell you about the benefits for the region and also how much it would cost up ahead. >> this local storage facility had 43 break-ins in just two years. >> i think my stuff would have been safer in my car. >> the special offer that
