6:00 pm
is back good evening, i'm veronica de la cruz. >> i'm ken bastida in for allen martin. we have breaking news. just minutes ago, the state announced crab season is back on! health officials lifting the warnings about dungeness crab. and our own paul deanno is along the coast now in half moon bay. paul, this will be welcome news to the hard hit fishing industry. >> reporter: this is great news. there are crab pots a mile down the road sit there is for three months. crab season should have begun in mid-november. today it's mid-february. three months late, but better late than never. the levels of what is called domoic acid, which is unsafe to eat, have now been deemed low enough or undetectable enough that in certain parts of the california coastline including much of the bay area here, crab season is back open as of right now. the acid test has dropped to what the state considers safe levels. lots of traps were backed up in ports from fisherman's wharf to
6:01 pm
monterey an economic disaster for crabbers and northern california's economy but tonight the state says fishermen can now set their traps for dungeness crab anywhere from point reyes, here's the key, it's from point reyes and south. all of this comes just hours after the state senate discussed the economic disaster of that delayed season and they also called on the federal government to declare a disaster. >> in modern history, we have never seen the crab harvest delayed like this. the joint committee requested the governor brown issue a disaster declaration. that happened. governor brown has now issued a request for a federal declaration. it's now on the federal side with the secretary of the interior. >> reporter: so it's not a one size fits all crab season is back on. the ban on dungeness fishing remains in effect north of point reyes so it's only from point reyes southward you can fish for crab safely. and this is all also important. the state says it is only safe
6:02 pm
to eat the fleshy white meet of the crab. the internal known as the butter, no, it can still have that higher concentration of the domoic acid compared to the meat and another bit of advice from the state, if you boil crab, if you are making crabs with pasta or any dish like that, throw away the water because if you are cooking the whole crab the insides are still in and that water or that broth may be unsafe to eat. so there are some specifics here that you still have to consider. it's not everything is done. but you can eat the fleshy white meat of the crab. crab season is back open south of point reyes. we have more on the health advisories on our website, fishermen say the crab you catch late in the season is not as good as november and december but it's too late for that. it's better late than never. for now crab season is back on south of point reyes. live from half moon bay, paul deanno. back to you. >> thank you. a decision to fire the man in charge of the california coastal commission is provoking anger from environmentalists.
6:03 pm
late last night the commission's board voted 7-5 to fire charles lester. as we first reported here, a big crowd turned out at the meeting in morro bay. some of lester's supporters were in tears. speakers warned that removing him would send a signal that commission staff should be more accommodating to developers. assembly speaker toni atkins was critical of the vote. the san diego democrat said let me apologize to the public. i truly thought my appointees would be better stewards of the coast. several commissioners have expressed frustration with lester's management and leadership skills. well, new at 6:00, the best surfers in the world are descending upon the bay area for the legendary mavericks surf contest. it is an all boys club. but kpix 5's emily turner tells us that could change. right, emily? >> reporter: and it could be changing as soon as next year. you know, the waves that these men are surfing are huge. but what's making waves also is
6:04 pm
the fact that they may be adding women into that line-up of 24. as if the big barrel waves of mavericks weren't daunting enough to conquer, getting to ride one in competition as a woman is even more difficult. so difficult, it's never been done before. that's all about to change. >> it's a huge door of opportunity for us. we're not trying to push our way into the "titans of mavericks" but it's an exciting opportunity for us to progress the conversation around developing a tour for women in big wave surfing. >> reporter: "titans of mavericks" competition is held in half moon bay on some of the biggest and most dangerous waves there are. but to keep the permit from the coastal commission next year mavericks has to create a plan to include a woman in the event. a woman has never been one of the 24 chosen to compete in all the 15 years of competition although they have been alternates. >> we are looking for the absolute best of the best performance in the water. >> reporter: so if a woman
6:05 pm
could do it they would be invited? >> absolutely! >> reporter: whether they can or not is decided by a committee of five. experts in big wave surfing and all men. but even women like this one say they are not as good yet. so organizers bristle at being told what to do by the coastal commission who is never involved in the competition until this year. so bianca says the women will take care of themselves. >> i think they are kind of outside their scope of jurisdiction at this point. i hope they get a good sponsor and they put on a great women's event. >> women have a place in the line-up just like men because the ocean doesn't see male or female. the wave is the wave. it doesn't matter if you're a man or woman. if you want to catch that wave and ride that mountain, you can do it. >> reporter: and it will certainly be interesting to see how this plays out. there will be a meeting between mavericks and the coastal commission later this year to determine whether or not their
6:06 pm
permit will be renewed. in the meantime, important information for those who want to see how everything plays out tomorrow at 8:30 when mavericks begins unlike years past you will not be able to watch from the cliff because all the el nino weather that's making these waves so big has also made those cliffs unsafe. so be sure to get here early to make sure you can find a seat. reporting live in half moon bay, emily turner, kpix 5. >> like emily said, the mavericks competition kicks off tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. in a ruling that could expose wrongdoing, a judge has ordered the state public utilities commission to come up with documents related to the troubled san onofre nuclear power plant. the cpuc has been fighting the public records request for a while now. in particular, notes related to a secret meeting and a polish hotel involving its former president michael peevey and an official with southern california edison. they agreed to shift billions
6:07 pm
in losses from that power plant to ratepayers. in his ruling the judge said not releasing the documents would do violence to the rights of citizens in a democracy to know the actions taken by their public officials. those documents could include communications with the governor's office regarding the deal. as for michael peevey, he is the subject of ongoing criminal investigations. landowners are challenging a promise that the bullet train can carry passengers from san francisco to los angeles in two hours and 40 minutes. a lawsuit claims there is no way the trains can go that fast. the fight comes down to whether the rail authority can legally use its own expert who says the travel time is possible. the $68 billion project has been plagued by legal and financial delays since voters approved funding in 2008. late this afternoon, we got our first look at the autopsy report for mario woods.
6:08 pm
he is the man shot and killed by san francisco police last december. in part, the findings confirmedded what the cell phone video shows that woods was shot 20 times in various parts of his body. police say that he refused to drop a knife, that beanbag rounds didn't subdue him and the toxicology report shows woods had methamphetamine, marijuana and two types of antidepressants in his system. this report comes as the u.s. justice department has launched an investigation into sfpd practices. also today a police honor guard stood in formation in the glen cove area of vallejo to salute a veteran officer as his body was removed from his home. police say he was killed in a family dispute. 58-year-old augustine "gus" vegas served in the richmond police department for more than a decade. he worked as a patrol officer and a homicide detective and was active in the foster care
6:09 pm
system in vallejo. kpix 5 reporter da lin on the man being remembered and the suspect accused of killing him. da. >> reporter: ken, the suspect at one point wanted to become a police officer. he graduated from a police academy. as for the victim, he was well respected in the community. a lot of friends and neighbors are extremely upset over this. >> they have a beautiful family. they're just beautiful people. >> reporter: friends are shock over the kill of 58-year-old augustine vegas, better known as gus. he was a cop for the richmond police department for 15 years. >> very nice family man. his relationship with his wife, his kids, you know, it was amazing. it's a big loss. >> reporter: investigators believe a domestic dispute over the victim's 6-year-old grandson led to the shooting inside his own hom . the suspect is 30-year-old robert vega, who was in a relationship with gus' daughter.
6:10 pm
investigators say during some sort of fight, robert killed gus in front of the family and possibly the family dog. robert then took his son and drove to fairfield. he was arrested there there. the 6-year-old was unharmed. both robert and gus graduated from the same police academy 21 years apart. >> gus was a very likeable -- always pleasant, always in a good mood, just really related to other people in a natural way. >> reporter: close friend renee mccreary says gus and his wife are extremely giving. they founded a foster home organization called, foster greatness. in fact, they adopted quite a few foster children as well including their biological children they have a total of 10 kids and 20 grandchildren. >> gus has always worked very hard to support his family. [ crying ] >> he is a detective and he took that position to get off the streets, you know, to be safe. and for this to happen in his
6:11 pm
own home, it's just horrific. >> reporter: we don't know if the dispute was over the custody of that 6-year-old boy. police are looking into that. as for the suspect, even though he graduated from a police academy, we don't know if he actually ever worked for a police department. live in vallejo, i'm da lin, kpix 5. an elderly driver who smashed through a livermore gym will not face criminal charges. in september 80-year-old [ non- english language ] plowed into the gym's storefront right into a workout class. livermore lab executive kathy baker was killed and several others injured. baker's husband has sued the driver and the gym. the driver likely mistook the gas pedal for the brake but prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to file charges. new data shows just how tight the housing market is in part of the bay area. in fact, the vacancy rate in san jose is the lowest in the country right now. new at 6:00, kpix 5's devin fehely is in san jose to run
6:12 pm
down the numbers and what's behind them. devin. >> reporter: yeah. real estate agents say it is and will likely continue to be a sellers market as housing and rent prices skyrocket. the numbers confirm what most of us already know or suspect, that the bay area's real estate market is one of the hottest in the country with no signs of cooling off anytime soon. >> this is a very good time to be a seller of real estate throughout the bay area. and it's not a bad time to be a landlord because you can take care of your vacancies very quickly. >> reporter: san jose has the lowest vacancy rate in the country just .2%. out of every 1,000 homes two might be vacant. compared to 75 out of 1,000 in an area like flint, michigan with a sputtering economy. >> over the past four years we have added almost 550,000 jobs but during that same time in the bay area, there have only
6:13 pm
been 82,000 new housing starts. that creates a significantly higher demand on an already impacted supply. >> reporter: but the bay area's resurgent economy is not only driving job creation. it's also driving some potential home buyers out of the market, which has in turn sent rent prices through the roof. >> for renters it means that it's going to be harder for them to find a property and they are probably going to pay more. >> reporter: soaring house prices, yet another reminder of how much the bay's booming economy continues to cost us. some real estate agents have raised the "spectre" of a potential housing bubble but most seem to believe that as long as the housing market is buoyed by strong job growth and good wages, that it's unlikely to collapse again. in san jose, devin fehely, kpix 5. raiders fans left in limbo! but tonight, they are finally getting some answers. what the team just decided about their future in oakland. >> and a california congressman turns heads with his cloud of
6:14 pm

6:18 pm
you're picked after everyone else is rejected. >> fans will stick because of loyalty but you get frustrated with the uncertainty of how things are panning out. >> reporter: davis announced he hired larry mcneill the former cfo of the 9ers. he is the guy that got levi's stadium built. but they have no plan for a stadium in the east bay and they are still about $300 million short of what they need. in oakland, mike sugerman, kpix 5. a san diego area congressman was not afraid to literally blow a little smoke to prove his point at a hearing in washington today. >> so. this is called a vaporizer. >> reporter: republican congressman duncan hunter was upset with a transport committee's proposal to ban "vaping" on planes. congressman hunter says he and thousands of others have used vaporizers to quit smoking and calls "vaping" the future. but in the end the committee voted to approve the ban. a plane flying from san

6:34 pm
we harm it, we're cutting our own throats. >> reporter: but at the resource renewal institute environmentalists in mill valley they point to photographs at parkland that says the ranches are too big and the national park service is allowing ranchers to operate without a required environmental impact study and they filed a federal lawsuit to stop it. >> so we are coming after them and intend to win and to make an example here that will be carried out if necessary other places in the nation. >> reporter: the park service acknowledges there are problems and is currently working on a management plan for cattle ranching that along with new regulations would offer a 20- year lease to ranchers. the lawsuit would put a halt to that requiring a comprehensive master plan be developed with a full environmental review. but another environmentalist says the legal action is misguided. >> these are not things to sue
6:35 pm
about. they are things to work with the ranchers and park on and solve the problems. >> reporter: to some this is a cattle ranch. to others a public space. now it become a legal battleground and a judge will have to decide what future holds for a place firmly rooted in the past. john ramos, kpix 5. >> the park service declined to comment today saying they cannot speak because of the pending lawsuit. now to campaign 2016. another fiery clash between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. the democratic candidates facing off again as the stakes continue to rise. elizabeth cook joins us now with highlights from round 2. these two went at it? >> this is the second time the democratic presidential candidates have duked it out one-on-one. clinton's has a lot of catching up to do after sanders won the primary in new hampshire. their first question tonight? about how large a government should be.
6:36 pm
>> of course there will be a limit but when today you have massive levels of income and wealth inequality when the middle class is disappearing, you have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major country on earth, yes, in my view, the government of a democratic society has a moral responsibility to play a vital role in making sure that all of our people have a decent standard of living. >> every progressive economist who has analyzed that says that the numbers don't add up. and that's a promise that cannot be kept. and it's really important now that we are getting into the rest of the country that both of us are held to account for explaining what we are proposing because especially with healthcare? this is not about math. this is about people's lives. and we should level with the american people about what we can do to make sure they get quality affordable healthcare. >> reporter: while the price tag for their individual plans are similar, things got especially heated when the
6:37 pm
candidates talked about how they would finance those plans. >> my price tag is about $100 billion a year. and again, paid for and what i have said is, i will not throw us further into debt. i believe i can get the money that i need by taxing the wealthy, by closing loopholes, the things that we are way overdue for doing and i think once i'm in the white house, we'll have enough political capital to be able to do that. >> secretary clinton you're not in the white house yet. i will do away with the outrageous loopholes that allow profitable multinational corporations to stash billions of dollars in the caymen islands and bermuda and at a given year pay zero, zero, in federal income taxes. yeah, i'm going to do away with that. we'll use those proceeds, $100 billion a year. >> minority voters will pay a much larger role in the next two contests in nevada and south carolina. latest polls show clinton
