6:01 pm
some were plucked from the water by nearby boaters. one mexican crew member now reports a group of men that stayed together was saved by 12 bottles of soda flighting in a white ice cooler among the wreckage. >> praise god for letting me be here today as well as the rest of the survivors. >> stilt optimistic about the search right now undergoing the mexican military and the mexican consulate has been very accommodating for all our needs until we have our loved ones found. >> reporter: for a second day a c-130 took off from sacramento's coast guard station to assist in the search. the mexican government had told family members the search only had a 96-hour window. that would mean it would end at 2:30 tomorrow morning. now state senator leland yee's office tells cbs 5 he has been assured by the mexican consulate the search has been extended indefinitely. >> the authorities have indicated they will go beyond
6:02 pm
the 96 hours and will continue to do whatever they can to do and complete their search-and- rescue. i will be meeting with the mexican consulate authorities tomorrow and we will convene to firm up the agreements and commitments. >> reporter: every. >> reporter: a mexican official with the state of baja is saying his office is opening an official inquiry into the incident. an investigation will likely include a thorough questioning of the captain. >> we just got off the phone with the tourism secretary of the state of baja. he says contrary to rumors noting around, the captain of the erik has not been arrested. the brother of one of the missing men meanwhile joined leland yee at that press conference this afternoon and told reporters his son-in-law was the first to notice something was wrong early sunday morning. >> he was on top deck when he heard some noise and saw the big wave coming and he ran down
6:03 pm
to the cabin and woke everybody up. and by the time everybody came out, they were already in nine feet of water. there was no warning. if it wasn't for jim miller, the outcome would have been totally different. >> he saw how exhausted those survivors are. they were expected to be coming home two days ago but now they are going to stay and it's not clear how long. they are monitoring the search. they want their missing brethren to come back. >> joe, you mentioned that the captain wasn't arrested. but have we heard, is he cooperating with investigators? >> reporter: he is speaking with investigators and in fact, there was supposed to be a news conference this evening. we are not sure of the timetable on that but he was going to participate with that, as well. this was a sudden storm. roberta tells me whereas you can predict some storms, you can't predict the severity and this one hit like a whammy in the middle of the night. >> and massive waves. thank you, joe vazquez. desperate for word on their

loved ones, families of two of the missing fishermen have set up an impromptu operations center inside their home. ann notarangelo shows us how they are taking action. >> reporter: dana, inside the home behind me there are about a dozen people crowded around the dining room table working the phones or the internet trying to get word out so people don't stop looking for these missing fishermen. this is don lee's house. his wife and two daughters are spearheading the effort joined today by gene leong's family. both men are missing. the families are using social and traditional media to make sure every effort is made to find them. they are trying to do the things: get divers to the area to search the wreckage so if there is some bad news, at least they will know with certainly; expand and extend the search; and also for the mexican navy to use local fishermen who know the area in their search efforts. the men's families met with reporters to talk about state and federal help. but they want is secretary of state hillary clinton to weigh in and put pressure on the mexican government to do a
6:05 pm
thorough search and rescue effort. >> we need our dads to come home and we need our uncles and our friends to come home. [ crying ] >> and that at this point, we need federal muscle and more to help us. >> we keep getting conflicting reports, conflicting information. but when we get news, great. when we get the bad news, we prepare. it's been a roller coaster. >> my dad, don, everybody we know there are tough guys. they prepared the best they can. >> reporter: one of the things gene leong did before leaving on their trip was buy a new life vest that can be worn while sleeping. so the families are very hopeful that the men are still alive. they have survival skills and two of them are veterans. local fishermen have told them people have been found a week later on remote islands. these men were not daredevils. in fact, the family says that had these men known there was a storm brewing they would have never gotten on this boat. if you would like more information or would like to help these families in their

efforts, they have set up a blog. the easiest way to find it go to our website, and click on "newslinks." in san ramon, ann notarangelo, cbs 5. right now firefighters are mopping up the scene of a house fire on the peninsula. they are also investigating whether fireworks might be to blame. the two-story house caught fire in the burlingame hills about 3:30 this afternoon sending plumas of smoke into the sky. at one point, the smoke could be seen from highway 101. the house is on los robles drive near mills creek park. no word whether anyone was home at the time of the fire. six military personnel are in the hospital after a marine helicopter crashed in southern california today. according to the marines, it happened at camp pendleton north of san diego around noon. everyone on board was taken to the hospital. so far, the military has not released their conditions. and it's not clear why that chopper crashed. the marines would only say that it's under investigation. this is the second recent
6:07 pm
military crash in southern california. this boeing 707 burst into flames after skidding off a runway at point mugu near oxnard in june. no one was seriously hurt in that crash. law enforcement agencies will turn to prisons to help fight gang violence in east palo alto. it's part of a new collaboration between local police and federal agents. mark sayre with why they think they can cut down on gang activity from the inside out. mark. >> reporter: allen, this all stems from the shooting death of a 3-month-old boy here in east palo alto and now police say the pressure that they are planning on putting on the two suspected gangs involved will be intense and sustained. the killing of 3-month-old izack garcia prompts what police are calling a multipronged crackdown against gang members in east palo alto and throughout san mateo county. >> but clearly, the murder of a 3-month-old is completely beyond humanity. >> reporter: garcia was killed on june 5 in what investigators believe was a case of mistaken
6:08 pm
identity in a retaliation shooting between rival norteno an sereno gang members, a 17- year-old has been charged in the killing. today more than 70 state, federal and local law enforcement leaders met to outline a plan to specifically put pressure on that's two gangs. last week, authorities conducted a sweep of known gang members who are on parole or probation and now they will be reaching into local jails and state prisons to identify those who they believe are directing gang operations. >> most gangs could be driven by money. and so the way the pressure comes in even while they are in jail, there is still a financial gain to their way of life, to their lifestyle, when they come in and out of jail so. by disrupting their illegal operations, you're disrupting the cash flow. >> reporter: authorities say gangs are becoming more like the old school mafia in terms of the way they are organized and operate. >> it's no longer just small little thugs in neighborhoods that are causing problems. it is transnational gangs that are not only becoming organized within themselves but amongst themselves in other areas and
6:09 pm
being run through the prison systems. >> reporter: but here along wisteria lane where izack garcia was killed, a rest didn't doesn't believe the crackdown will make the streets any safer. is it going to make a difference? >> no. >> reporter: why not? >> because if somebody wants to do something they will do it regardless. >> reporter: there are state and local budgeted cuts. they say while there are some things they can't do with less money, gang enforcement is not one of them. mark sayre, cbs 5. pot advocates say the rules about medical marijuana just got a lot hazier. the obama administration put out a memo that suggests large- scale pot operations are not safe from federal prosecution. juliette goodrich shows us the letter has sparked fear of a stricter crackdown. juliette. >> reporter: dana, it is a crackdown for the growers and sellers of medicinal marijuana
6:10 pm
but some feel it is the patients who need the medicinal marijuana the most who will suffer. the heat is on for medical marijuana growers and suppliers even if they are complying with state law. >> anyone in the business of providing cannabis to these patients could still be a target even if the patients themselves are not. put you're still putting the target on the back of the patients if they don't have medicine access. >> reporter: strict guidelines now released by the obama administration reinforce federal prosecution of anyone growing and smiling marijuana to medical patients. marijuana advocacy groups say it contradicts the president's earlier pledge to let states set their own policies. >> across the country yes, it means that the war will go on, it's going to continue to be a battle to change the laws on this because the federal government and the obama administration doesn't seem to be living up to their campaign promise. >> reporter: the u.s. attorney
6:11 pm
general's office's marijuana policies spare seriously ill patients and caregivers from prosecution. but advocacy groups say it still denies patients the means to use marijuana legally. >> it's a war. and we haven't won yet. so, you know, they are going to keep pressing their point and trying to say that, well, you know, everything is illegal federally. >> reporter: advocacy groups say it now comes down to local and state officials and juries. >> hopefully here in the bay area, we're pretty safe because there is so much local support but in other places, it's bad news. >> until someone forces a national referendum or gets the u.n. to change their charter, they kind of have to take that stance. so they are going to keep coming after medical cultivators and shops. >> reporter: marijuana dispensaries operate under local regulation but they have faced periodic raids from federal authorities so dana, it's still a very vague line between what's a small
6:12 pm
operation and a large marijuana operation and who the feds decide to raid or not raid. >> all right. in oakland, juliette goodrich, thank you. overall, fewer people are going to jail for drug crimes. figures from the state department of corrections and rehabilitation show the full of inmates locked up primarily for truck violations dropped about 35% over the past decade. that's due in part to a law passed in 2000 that mandates treatment instead of prison time for certain drug crimes. the art of stealing. a man snatches a picasso an runs! how a bar could foil his perfect getaway. >> california's broke but hundreds of state workers are still getting huge paychecks. the loophole allowing some to make almost $800,000 a year. >> moms have been trying to sneak veggies into their dishes for a long time. >> a new way to get kids to eat their vegetables. the popular food hiding them in

6:16 pm
and walks out with a picasso. mike sugerman reports the man may have made a key mistake. >> reporter: unless you're carry grant, it's probably smart to keep a low profile if you are going to be an art thief. that didn't happen here at union square where one man has become an international sensation. reporter: stop me if you heard this one. guy walks into an art gallery, takes a picasso off the wall, walks to a waiting cab. >> people involved in this type business know what they're doing. >> reporter: the "tete de femme" is a small pencil drawing worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, reportedly double locked to the wall. it's all something out of a movie. fact is, the thief ended up in a movie. >> jackpot. there is the guy there. what are the chances of him walking by with a picasso in his hand? >> reporter: lefty o'doul's down the street from the gallery where the heist happened the, the owner checked the surveillance tape and it turns out the guy and the picasso are pretty as a picture. >> no socks, preppie looking
6:17 pm
guy, carrying a picasso covered up by a paper. >> reporter: so now you have one of the hottest pieces of art in the planet. what did he do with it? you sell it on ebay? nothing. do you pawn it? anybody come in trying to pawn a picasso? >> not today. guy smart enough to run into a place and get a picasso is not going to be stupid enough to sell it it a pawn shop. >> reporter: he was dumb enough to get himself videotaped. >> he felt he could get in there and take it without being identified. >> reporter: rick smith former fbi agent now a private detective with his cannon street investigations figures this guy may have already given it to someone else. >> get it overseas somehow and then sell it to a private residence to an individual that would buy it knowing it's stolen. >> reporter: it certainly isn't worth anything on the open market. everybody knows about it and everybody has an opinion. >> sneaky sales. just get the picture out... get in a taxi go home without anyone finding him. that's intelligence and entrepreneurism.
6:18 pm
well done. picasso would applaud him. >> reporter: she says she didn't recognize that guy. but if you do, the san francisco police would sure like to hear from you. allen? >> i don't suppose the odds are it could edge up at the picasso exhibit going on at the de young, he wouldn't sneak it in there, wo he? >> reporter: good idea. >> cheeky little devil. >> mike sugerman, thanks so much. roberta, your weather maps are priceless when we like the weather. >> well, do you like this one then? let's take a peek. we have the low clouds and fog just straddling the coast at this hour and that kept the temperatures down at the beaches. pacifica checking in at 58 degrees still cloudy there. otherwise in san francisco, we came down, as well. let's go ahead and take a look outside now and compare that picture. did you see that fog on the satellite is this what do you
6:19 pm
see there? this is the commute in and out of the golden gate bridge from the city of san francisco. that's the north bay. what you're looking at is condensation on the lens from the low clouds and fog. 67 degrees san francisco. the average is 68. but it was definitely cooler than what we experienced yesterday. 98 degrees still toasty in our interior section. 88 in santa rosa. upper 80s in san jose and 74 degrees in oakland. if you are out and about this evening a wide range of numbers. from the 50s to the 60s, 70s and still 92 degrees in concord and in livermore. tomorrow, count on patchy coastal clouds bayside, and around the beaches for the morning commute and then a tad cooler everywhere. clouds pushed back to the bay by the evening commute. now, we do have subtropical moisture right there moving out of southern california into yosemite and tahoe where we have seen several lightning strikes today put we are dealing with other cloud types. these right here in the form of the patchy fog that will push
6:20 pm
into the bay overnight not quite make it in towards the concord or the tri-valley area but nevertheless, it will add to the cooling trend that we will be experiencing but it is a gradual cooling trend each and every day. now, meanwhile, tonight overnight into the 40s and 50s. tomorrow's daytime highs coming down right into the low 90s inland. additional cooling will take place with the seven-day forecast. that's still straight ahead. dana and allen? >> thank you. state lawmakers get frank why hot dogs were on the agenda at the capital today. >> and sneaking veggies into popular kids foods. parents are buying it but is it really healthy? that's in two minutes. ,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,
6:21 pm
6:22 pm
hot dogs, appparently. california could soon be the first stat now that they have hammered out a budget and are getting paid, state lawmakers have time
6:23 pm
to discuss things like hot dogs apparently. california could soon be the first state in the nation with a legal definition. a bill just introduced today in the assembly seeks to define a hot dog as a whole cured cooked sausage that is skinless or stuffed in a casing and may be served on a bun or a roll. the bill's sponsor says the definition is needed to give health inspectors more oversight over vendors. we know kids like hot dogs but are you trying to get yours to eat more veggies? some food manufacturers think they have a solution. hide them in plain sight. dr. kim mulvihill joins us. >> i know you're fascinated by this. >> yeah. we'll see if it works. >> in theory. >> reporter: think of it as stealth vegetables. it's the latest food marketing tactic and the idea, sneak vegetables into your kids' favorite foods and they will never know the difference. problem is, that's a problem. >> reporter: can't get your kids to eat their vegetables?
6:24 pm
here's an idea. go stealth. >> you know, moms have been trying to sneak veggies into their dishes for a long time. >> reporter: but it's no longer just moms. check this out. a brand-new product boxes of kraft macaroni and cheese veggie pasta. on the outside a warning, there are veggies in here. on the inside a covert vegetable cauliflower. but it doesn't look or taste anything like. the cauliflower in this box has been freeze dried and pulverized into powder and used to make the fast is. >> well, it does have one half serving of vegetables. >> reporter: joanne hattner is a registered dietician and says lots of parents want to put healthier foods know their kids. with that said -- >> most food manufacturers are trying to make healthier products. >> reporter: but for kids to develop healthier eating habits you doesn't want to disguise vegetables as something else, according to studies. >> it's important for the child to see the vegetable to recognize it and to taste it for it to become familiar and then they will accept it and it will be a life-long habit.
6:25 pm
>> reporter: think of this as a bonus half serving of vegetables, not a replacement for having vegetables on the plate. vegetables that you can see off a whole host of vitamins and nutrients and fiber all good things for growing kids of any age. >> if you take the cookies and cakes out of the house, they will eat something. >> reporter: they will be hungry and eat their vegetables. they have to try it 15 times before they are going to actually like that cauliflower. >> if they will ever admit to it. >> think of an elbow macaroni as a vegetable. [ laughter ] >> thanks. huge paychecks for state workers. hundreds of employees making six figure salaries. the loophole that lets some more than quadruple their pay. >> i think it's a very dangerous precedent. >> we just want to include this community as well as all the others. >> rewriting the lesson plan in california schools. the major change to history
6:26 pm
that is just a signature away. and facebook calls iting awesome! the new way to connect instantly. >> and this looks like something out of a movie but it's real. the city swallowed by a wall of dust 8,000 feet high. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

conquer. christin ayers on how the chief of police plans to shuffle his department. christin. oakland has a plan to fight crime, divide and conquer. christin ayers on how the chief of police plans to shuffle the department. reporter: the city of oakland has no new money to add new officers so instead the police chief is taking matters into his own hands choosing to addressees and west oak's crime problems by completely restructuring the way the police department does business. and let's take a look at some of the changes that he is now proposing. he is going to eliminate specialized units and that means no more motorcycles or bicycle cops. instead, there will be more cops in patrol cars. that will also collapse violent crimes including robbery, homicide and assault into one major crimes unit. a handful of homicide detectives will work with injured beat cops relegated to
6:30 pm
desk work to solve those crimes. and a press conference this morning, chief batts said the changes would make the department more efficient. and he said residents are going to see a marked difference particularly on the streets of east and west oakland. >> they should see we are doing a better job on violence and violence prevention. by making this major crimes unit we should be on top and gathering intelligence and having a higher clearance rate in our cases. >> reporter: oakland currently has 636 officers. that's about 200 fewer than back in 2008. batts expects to add about 22 officers who he will rehire. they were laid off earlier this year. some of these changes are going to happen pretty quickly. the increases to patrols will happen saturday and then by mid- august we'll start to hear about some of those changes within the department with homicide and assault units. >> okay. christin ayers in oakland, thank you. california could be the first state to require public

schools to include the contributions of gays and lesbians in the school curriculum. voting along party lines, the bill passed. phil matier reports. >> reporter: it's on the governor's desk. this would be the first in the nation but the debate is still going on. >> i think it's a very dangerous precedent. we're not --we're actually going to tell children what to think. >> if someone was accomplished in their goals in life and changing america, then honor them for that but not because of the way they have sex. >> reporter: that was the reaction of two republican lawmakers to a bill now on the way to the governor's desk mandating that california public schools start teaching the contributions that gays and lesbians and transgenders have made to the state's history. just as we teach about the impact of say martin luther king, jr. or cesar chavez, but gays history says the bill's author san francisco state
6:32 pm
senator mark leno is being censored because --well, they're gay. >> we just want to include this community as well as all the others. we are probably the last one to be included. >> reporter: what rankles the republicans is that the bill states that the history lessons concerning days must all be positive. >> one thing to record history. it's another thing to say we're only going to present the positive aspect and we're not going to record the reality. >> reporter: so this would bar anything negative being taught about gays or transgenders or anybody else. >> just as we currently prohibit any kind of bias or discriminatory information regarding african-americans in the classroom or mexican- americans in the classroom. >> we have seen in california a history of pushing the home -- of pushing the homosexual agenda in legislation and we have seen it in being pushed in the education system at every, single level. >> if the gay agenda is for full inclusion in society and for first class citizenship, put me at the head of the list.
6:33 pm
>> that was phil matier reporting from sacramento. now, despite the state's dire budget situation, hundreds of state workers are getting six figure salaries far beyond their base pay. 1400 state employees made more than $200,000 last year according to the state comptroller. more than half of them are prison medical professionals. for years the overcrowded and understaffed prisons would not allow them to take days off. so their total compensation is inflated by unused vacation and sick leave. at the top of the list, a prison physician who made more than $784,000 has year. with finances in sacramento a mess the state's department of fish & game huh had to take some extraordinary -- has had to take some extraordinary measures tapping ordinary people to work alongside fame wardens and scientists. don ford shows us the first

6:35 pm
the lowest number of game wardens per capita in the united states, we can't fulfill our mission without help. [ applause ] >> reporter: it's an interesting group. dawn is a computer programmer from richmond. >> on my own i probably do backpacking or a hot of hiking. i hike -- a lot of hiking. i like to do a lot of walking but i want to do more and see more of california. >> reporter: then there is bob woodward, retired from stanford university. >> what better thing to do than help the state along with doing the things i really enjoy doing? >> reporter: the department of fish & game is still accepting applications for the next class. don ford, cbs 5. a silver lining in the bad economy. why some bay area homeowners are getting an unexpected break on their taxes. >> looks like a bank of fog?
