let me put it this way. april 12th, 1912, the titanic went down. six days later, fenway park opened up. what a historic landmark that we have in sports, period. but we are here for the nba finals that you see some of this building, of this historic ballpark. the a's, by the way are, battling the red sox as we speak. but back to the nba finals. the warriors got a chance to walk away with another trophy tomorrow night. but the celtics are so confident, so confident, they're saying you know what? tomorrow's game, it will be a see you sunday game. >> we are not scared. we do not fear the golden state warriors. >> reporter: the celtics might not be scared, but they might be out of answers against the warriors. >> larry bird is not walking through that door, fans. kevin mchale and robert parish are is not walking through that door. and if you expect them to walk
through the door, they're going to be gray and old. >> reporter: the wars have a historic big three of their own, steph, klay, dre. one win away from their fourth title in ten years together. and they got a little nostalgic on the flight back to boston. >> bob walked past. man, you guys are funny. y'all still sit together. y'all don't understand this. ten years like, this this does not happen. guys still sitting together at the same table. guys not even on the same team for ten years let alone still sitting at the same table enjoying each other's conversation and presence. i couldn't imagine sharing this journey with anyone else. >> reporter: they don't agree on everything. here is klay's version of that moment on the plane. >> that's funny. it happened two days ago. i was half asleep. they were chatting their hearts out on the plane. i was trying to get some sleep. good times. >> let me tell you something,
max and i, we've got the gig. boston is the center right now of the sports landscape. not only do we have the nba finals, just outside of town, the u.s. open is here for the balance of the week. so, hey, boston's where it's at. it really is. i'll talk to max a little later on. maybe we don't come home. we'll just have to see. back to you studio. >> sports happening right now. thanks, vern. okay. fans that flew out of sfo today got this special sendoff from yarrel workers. they had a surprise pep rally to give fans an extra little bit of team spirit before facing boston fans. it included a dj. the warriors dance team and warriors gear. okay. but it was a boston flight. so not everybody was happy about it. >> we're sitting outside of a boston gate right now. we have dancers for the warriors. i don't know what this is. i thought we were going back home. >> but i'm watching the game. i'm cheering for my fellows.
we're there. thank you, ladies! >> and we're going to have more reports from vern and max live in boston throughout the evening and all this week. now to some other headlines. we are following a developing story right now. just a few minutes ago we learned there was a shooting aboard an oakland bart train. the agency told us after 3:00 a fight broke out on a west oakland train. one shot was fired. nobody was hit, though. the station was closed for about 30 minutes. one man was hurt in the altercation and taken to the hospital. bart says an offduty officer recovered the gun. right now nobody is in custody, and bart service has been restored. the federal reserve is attacking inflation with its most aggressive interest rate hike in nearly 30 years. executive anchor elizabeth cook is here with what this means for you. liz? >> the federal reserve raised its benchmark interest rate by 3/4 of a percentage point. that's three times as big as a typical rate hike, and more
increases could be coming. >> we have both the tools we need and the resolve that it will take to restore price stability on behalf of american families and businesses. >> federal reserve chairman jerome powell said he does not see signs of a broad economic slowdown as the central bank tries to tackle 40-year high inflation. the higher interest rate would make borrowing more expensive on everything from home mortgage loans to credit cards to car loans. the idea is to get people to spend less, which will then lead to a drop in demand for goods, which should lower inflation. also today, president biden sent letters to several major oil companies pushing them to increase the supply of gas and diesel. while also calling out their record profits. >> we know where to put the blame on the war. but oil companies, they have oil refineries. they have responsibility too. >> now he is trying to demagogue energy companies. >> florida's republican governor
ron desantis criticized president biden's policies and the american petroleum institute, called on the president to, quote, prioritize unlocking u.s. energy resources. ahead of his planned trip to the middle east next month. the main worry is if the fed lowers demand too much, it could stall the economy. and that could lead to higher unemployment or push the economy into a recession. ryan? >> thanks, liz. and those stocks closed higher today after the fed's announcement. the dow was up 303 points. the nasdaq gained 270. and the s&p was up 54. in a separate alarm bell for the u.s. economy, a slowdown in certain retail spending. our government report shows last month spending dropped from april to may. that's the direct result of a high cost of food and gas. consumers spent 43% more on gas than they did last may. grocery store spending was up close to 9% from this time last year. now to a decision a lot of parents have been waiting what feels a very long time for.
with the vote of an advisory panel, the fda poised to offer moderna's and pfizer's covid vaccines for young children. kpix 5 wilson walker on the choice facing parents and what comes next. >> the vote is unanimous. we have 21 out of 21 yes votes, 0 no votes and 0 abstain votes. >> reporter: with that unanimous vote, the fda is expected to grant emergency use within days for pfizer it would be a three-dose vaccine for children six months through 4 years. for moderna, it would be a two-dose vaccine for children six months through 5 years. >> but i for one, i have grandchildren in this age group. and i think they and their parents have been waiting for this. so i think it makes perfect sense to go ahead. >> ucsf especially deem ol'ist george rutherford calls this an important step, especially for the families who have been waiting for this opportunity. >> i suspect that among certain people, and probably in the bay
area, there is going to be a pretty healthy appetite. >> absolutely. i always discuss vaccines with my pediatrician. and i'm open to doing what she thinks is best. >> reporter: michelle watts of berkeley says she has been thinking about this for her son but still hasn't made a decision yet. and a lot of parents may find themselves in the same spot now. >> california says it's not going to do school mandates for at least a year. so we'll have to see. >> reporter: so one question is how many parents opt for the vaccine. another is what that might mean for the pandemic at large. >> you know, it's like a fire, to the extent that we get rid of a brush that's septuplet susceptible. these are younger children who are susceptible by vaccination. the less transmission there will be, the less disease there will be. >> no vaccine sites for this. it will be pediatricians office, local clinics and millions of doses have already been ordered around the country. so shots will be available as soon as they can be given,
possibly as soon as next tuesday. yes here in berkeley, wilson walker, kpix 5. >> thank you, wilson. the man who has helped lead the nation's pandemic response, dr. anthony fauci has tested positive for covid. he is experiencing mild symptoms, according to a statement by his office. the 81-year-old is fully vaccinated, and he's gotten two booster shots. fauci has not been in close contact with the president or any other senior government officials. still ahead on kpix 5 and streaming on "cbs news bay area," a homecoming for the man who helped shape san jose. a poignant tribute to the late norm mineta. >> he absolutely leaves a mark on the community and on the country. >> we need more people in politics like norman. plus, how president biden is strengthening protections for lgbtq americans as some states try to take away their rights. and from record flooding to rock slides, new witness video of a dangerous drive out of yellowstone national park. wow. in the first alert forecast,
we're tracking the return of the fog that right now is hanging out just off the coast, but also some much cooler temperatures to finish off the workweek. that's coming up. - [announcer] the more we learn about covid-19, the more questions we have. the biggest question now, what's next? what will covid bring in six months, a year? if you're feeling anxious about the future, you're not alone. calhope offers free covid-19 emotional support. call 833-317-4673, or live chat at calhope.org today.

a live look at the white house where president biden signed a sweeping executive order today protecting lgbtq americans. >> my message so all the young people, just be you. you are loved. you are heard. you are understood. you do belong. and i want you to know that as your president, all of us on this stage have your back. >> kpix 5's reed cowan spoke to somebody with the biden administration about what this means, especially during pride month. reed? >> admiral rachel levine with the department of health and human services under the biden administration says this executive order signed at the white house on white house letterhead tells you at home that this administration not only sees you but wants to protect you. so what is it?
here are the basics. the president's executive order includes a pledge to end conversion therapy that seeks to ungay a person's orientation. support for families and educators who are confronting these issues and help for lgbtqi + people. and training for judges on the needs of this community. top of mind helping trans kids. >> about 50% of lgbtqi + youth contemplate suicide. and around 25% actually attempt suicide. and so that is why evaluation and treatment like gender affirmation treatment is medical care. it is health care. >> the admiral decries the more than 300 plus anti-lgbtq bills that have been introduced in various states over the past year, and says in the face of all of it, you and home have the power to save lives. listen to this finding from advocacy group the trevor project. >> one supportive adult can make
all the difference in terms of depression and suicidal thoughts for an lgbtqi+ young person. it could be a teacher, it could be a coach. it could be someone at their place of worship. but one supportive adult makes all the difference and can save a life. >> that really goes for anybody, right? just one person is all it needs to save a life. the admiral tells me public health issues shouldn't be political. that creating a healthier world for lgbtqi+ people is a health issue, not a political issue, and should stay that way. by the way, the president she says is marking pride months with real action. sara? >> reed, thank you so much. also today, a leading transgender health association lowered its recommended minimum wage for starting gender transition treatment. the world professional association for transgender health said hormones could be started at age 14, and some surgeries could actually happen at 15 or 17. however, the group stresses that age is just one factor to consider. the world health organization's top official in
europe is calling monkeypox a real threat to public health. the organization will hold an emergency meeting next week to address that outbreak. the agency says the disease has infected more than 1600 people in 35 countries, including the u.s. nationwide, 17 states have reported a total 49 cases, and california has the most cases with 15. the disease is transmitted through close contact, and the uk health secretary agency says right now most cases have been found in gay and bisexual men. but this recovering patient says it's important not to stigmatize certain communities. >> i think we need to be careful about how we label it. it's not a gay disease. it's a tropical strange disease. >> the w.h.o. also has plans to come up with a new name for the virus after dozens of international scientists said the monkeypox label is discriminatory. the cdc recommends travelers to mask up to avoid catching it.
whoa. >> falling rocks at yellowstone caught on camera there. record flooding and rock slides prompted park officials to shut down all five entrances to the park. visitors have been evacuated, and the last time natural disasters forced the park to close was in 1988. it's been a long time. and that video. >> a helpless feeling. >> that's a sign you see warning of falling rocks. what are you supposed to do in that situation? >> you basically just stop so that you're not adding your own momentum to whatever the rocks are going to add on. >> i would be tempted to floor it and get out of there. >> yeah, but if somebody big lands in your path, you're going right into it. there is no good answer. let's hope they get some relief. around here, we're going to get some relief from the warmth. it wasn't really flat-out hot, but the warmer spots did hit the low nines. that's coming to an end. the onshore breeze this evening, the fog is back. along the coast, it's going to
be spreading out inside the bay as we head through the rest of night, early tomorrow morning. a cooling trend with persistent onshore breeze through the first half of the weekend. even the possibility of a couple of sprinkles north of the golden gate on friday. it's a possibility, but it's not a strong possibility. we're talking about the odds of even a trace of rainfall for the north bay running in the 10% category. so i would not count on any moisture, but hey, we can hope. it looks like most of the moisture with that system is going to be directed farther to our north, to the pacific northwest. there is the fog hanging out behind the buildings of downtown san francisco. the temperature has definitely dropped. it's only 59 downtown at the moment. we've got 50, 60, 70s, and 80s, another june day in the bay area. 76 in san jose with the warm spots 87 degrees in santa rosa and concord. that fog is going to spread out not too far into the inland valleys by tomorrow morning. that's more likely by friday morning. the fog on futurecast showing the brighter white while the duller gray is clouds farther
