today on a measure that has the north bay city divided. measure b would limit new hotels and hotel expansions to 25 rooms. it was put on the ballot after city planners approved a 59- room hotel near the historic sonoma plaza. that hotel project is on hold until measure b is decided. >> without measure b, we would have hotels on the plaza. and the city would change. and it would say, we're open for big developers to come in and do what they want. >> it will harm the opportunity for our local businesses to be successful because we will be saying, we don't want tourists in this town anymore. >> measure b is the only issue on today's ballot in sonoma. it's 5:20. caught on camera. what may have caused eight manhole covers to go flying. >> and i'm dennis o'donnell. the giants land a free agent pitcher who made his name as an oakland athletics. >> and you think the 49ers got robbed? wait until you see the ending of monday night football. coming up. ,,,,

yesterday. and interesting, by the way, it made that jump from 15 to 16,000 in just six months so pretty quick. s&p 500 also hit a milestone clearing 1800, less than four months since it stood at 1700. and the nasdaq, well, got pretty close towards 4,000, it's a level we have not seen since september of 2000 but as you noted, by the end of the session, indices could not hold those historic new levels. >> what goes up must come down though. we are starting to hear maybe about a stock market bubble again. should we be worried? >> reporter: well, i think we have to be concerned because the s&p 500 is up more than 25% this year. it's risen by 165% since the march 2009 lows. and now there are some indicators that are pointing to potential trouble. first of all, ordinary investors are finally buying back in money into stock,
5:42 am
mutual and exchange traded funds for the highest inflows in four years. investor sentiment is becoming optimistic. borrowing to purchase stock market debt at record levels and the main gauge of investor fear is low. so when we take that all together, some experts say that we are just becoming too complacent and that could set up for a big correction maybe as much as 10%. >> hm. >> so jill, what should we do? >> reporter: i think when markets are up it's such a great time to rebalance your portfolio, right? because it forces you to sell right now. but just because a correction could be coming does not mean you should bail out. if you are a long-term investor you have 15 or 20 years to go, why alter your game plan? just keep to that diversified portfolio. but, you know, if you need your money in the next six months or a year, you have to pay a tuition payment or you have a down payment on a house that's due, you might as well sell today and not leave too much risk on the table. for more go to

5:50 am
toward the latter part of the day. timing it out for this morning we have some showers early on in the north bay looks like the bulk of the system begins to move in toward the middle of the day as the rain pushes further south and then into the evening hours looks like that's when it will start to pick up so rain a messy commute ride on the way home. the showers maybe even thunderstorms continue with that cold air on the back side of the system as we get into wednesday. all right. so we have some nice rain out there now and some cooler temperatures to be had by the afternoon. 50s and 60s. looks like over the next couple of days, the rain and unsettled weather continuing. maybe a lingering shower into thursday then dry weather returns as we head into the weekend with much warmer temperatures. all right. let's check your kpix 5 schoolcast for ruby bridges elementary school in alameda. morning bell probably dry but mostly cloudy. kids, out the door, grab that umbrella. you will probably be inside for lunch recess with showers and you will need the umbrella in the afternoon as the rain picks up when you get out. if you would like to nominate your school for a schoolcast go to and you can enter it there.
