san francisco school board is taking up the heated topic of admissions at lowell high school. there is a proposal to extend the lottery-based emissions process for one more year. the board voted to switch lowell from a merit-based to lottery in 2020. all as a way to promote diversity. the issue has been divisive. one at the elite private school and anger over the switch contributed to the recall after three school board members. the board could decide to approve a community process to come up with a long-term admissions plan. a final decision is expected by april 30th. hope, love, pride presented by waymo. >> the words of shakespeare have stood the test of time. but imagine hearing those same stories told in a different way, one that shows us no matter what language you speak, love is love. >> kpix 5's gianna franco shows us a bay area theater's new take on one of shakespeare's best known plays.

sanchez, this new version of where two women fall in love couldn't be more natural. >> a theme of this play is what is natural. and romeo and juliette by nature need to be together. and it's a society that's trying to pull them apart an not allow them to be their natural self. >> reporter: the story is set in the bay area in 1848, which back then was known as alta california. >> romeo is a woman. so romeo and juliette are both women in 1848 in the wild old west at a time when that just wasn't allowed. that wasn't as common. and so it just adds more of the pressure cooker to this play to see how desperate they were to be together. >> reporter: it was also a time where spanish and english were equally spoken. >> it started with karen zacarias, who wrote the script. she was really interested in marrying spanish and english,
and found that marrying it in a play about marrying two people, that some of society don't want to be together, but it's a natural fit, just felt really perfect. >> reporter: so this version of "romeo and juliet" is bilateral. [ speaking spanish ] >> one of your nine lives. >> i feel like a lot of times with theater, it can be like we're doing the latino play or the queer play. and it's not very often that you see these two things at the same time. i'm just really grateful. and on top of that, in spanish and english. >> not only do you have the uniqueness of spake spear in espanol, look at this, this gorgeous heater in the middle of orinda. >> i cherish every day out here. it feels like the most incredible ritual to be able to do theater near this space because it's covid-safe because we're outside. and we're in this incredible natural setting. last night as we were
rehearsing, we were serenaded by coyotes howling in the distance. and wild turkeys that are sing along with the songs that we're playing during interludes. >> reporter: helping the passion of romeo and juliet come to life in a new and different way. i'm gianna franco, kpix 5. >> you can see romeo and juliet through june 19th at cal shakes in orinda. check out all of this month's pride stories on our special section kpix.com. still ahead, elon musk tackles questions from twitter employees. what he revealed about his future plans for the company. and the bright side of the federal reserve's interest rate hike. how it could actually make some people money. coming up all new at 6:00, sky-high rent in the bay area is nothing new, but it should be even higher. why is rent going up slower here than anywhere else? plus -- >> this is an old water meter, but if you have a leak you may not realize until the water bill

elon musk met with twitter employees for the first time since his take overbid, laying out his expectations for the company. he said he wants to see one billion active twitter users a day, up from the current 200 million daily users. it also doubled down over relaxing content restrictions and said he may be flexible about people working remotely but also hinted at layoffs. he offered to buy twitter for $44 billion but then threatened to walk away. we're facing the highest federal interest rate hikes since 1994. >> but as christine lazar explains, there are some ways to turn rising interest rates into cash in your pocket. >> reporter: with mortgage rates
rising, your credit card debt likely increasing. and with it now more expensive to borrow money, it's hard to feel optimistic about one's financial future. >> it doesn't look too good right now. >> reporter: but it doesn't have to be all gloom and doom. financial experts say there are money making opportunities when the fed increases the interest rate. >> if you have money sitting in a bank where they adjust the rates regularly like in a money market account, your interest rate will probably have already risen and will continue to rise as interest rates rise. >> reporter: larry harris is professor of finance at usc. if you have money to save, now is the time to put it away. series i bonds have risen to 9.96%. >> the series i-bond is an inflation adjusted bond, which means you're given a return. it includes the rate of inflation. so when inflation goes up, the money you make on this bond rises. >> if you don't want to lock up your money, some banks will even offer interest on checking
accounts. >> interest rates have risen to almost a per sent or higher. that's what people were locking into three or five years in the cds just about a year ago. >> luis barajas is a certified financial planner. he says everyone should pay off their credit card debt now if they can. >> we know they're going to go from 16% on a credit card. it will rise towards the end of the year to maybe 19, 20%. >> reporter: she is 25 and planning to start saving now so she doesn't have to give up the things she enjoys. >> how can i make more so i can continue my spending habits? because i like buying my coffee. i like going out to eat. and so i don't really want to cut back. if i can make more. >> revlon has filed for bankruptcy protection. the 90-year-old cosmetics company has been facing crippling debt and mounting competition from celebrity makeup lines and other companies. revlon will receive $575 million in financing, which should keep
the senate has approved a bill to help military veterans who have been exposed to overseas burn pits. the legislation would establish a presumptive link between certain illnesses and exposure to toxic waste dumps in war zones. the goal is to make it a little easier for veterans to claim benefits and treatment for 23 diseases and rare cancers related to toxic exposure. abbott nutrition has once again halted a baby formula production at its michigan plant, this time because of flooding from severe storms there. abbott says it paused production of its elicare specialty to assess and clean and resan advertise the plant. this comes just less than two weeks after a months' long closure that helped drive that nationwide shortage of formula. but the company says there is
enough supply to meet demand until production there can restart. they're estimating this delay to last a few weeks. state officials have decided not to list the iconic joshua tree as a threatened species, at least for now. the fish and game commission failed to reach a majority on whether the plant found in the southern california desert should be listed under the california endangered species act. environmentalists say the trees are at risk from wildfires and extreme droughts fueled by climate change. the commission will take up that issue again in october. and here is a reminder to keep your windows closed out in the country. an aggressive bear snuck into an airbnb in truckee and made a bit of a mess. the guests locked themselves in rooms and contacted authorities. sheriff's deputies who responded say the bear charged at them several times. they eventually got the bear back outside where three of its cubs were waiting in that tree. it's a mama bear looking for some food. >> the mama.
>> ritz crackers and whatever else they found. i don't know. airbnbs don't have much in there. maybe it was good one. >> maybe that's why it was aggressive. >> probably. it wants some better food. how is our weather looking? i know it's been dry and warm, but a little cooler today? >> a little cooler today. it's going to be even cooler than that tomorrow. this trend is going to continue for the next couple days. temperatures below average across the board tomorrow. even the possibility as a storm system makes its way closer to the coast. a couple of pop-up showers over the north bay. we're talking one or two of a few sprinkles worth of rain. but hey, every drop, we'll take what we can get. that weather pattern comes to an end by father's day. as the storm system slides farther to the east, we'll get back into a normal weather pattern with the next heat dome beginning to take shape out to the west. we're not done with the temperature roller coaster heading back up as we head through the first half of next week. that slim rain chance, here is what i mean by slim, having to round up the numbers to reach a 10% threshold, that is a very low chance. even a couple of sprinkles for
the north bay. but beggars can't be choosers in the middle of june. we'll keep an eye on the radar throughout the day tomorrow. high clouds, way too high in the atmosphere to drop precipitation on us. not too much fog yet that will change. high temperatures today a lot cooler inland. only 1 degrees for the warmest spots. san jose reached the mid-70s. san francisco climbed briefly into the mid-60s but back down to 60 degrees. pacifica fell short of actually hitting 60, topping out at 59. it's down to 57 at half moon bay. temperatures around the bay mostly in the 60s. inland mostly in the 70s. these temperatures are going to back off even more for tomorrow. we're going to be 5 degrees below normal around the bay. closer to 10 to 15 degrees below average farther inland. some passing clouds overhead. the brighter white, those are the banks of fog trying to spread out tomorrow morning. we'll see more fog to start the day on saturday as opposed to tomorrow morning. what fog there is should dissipate quickly. a mix for the rest of the day.
strong onshore breeze with us the rest of the evening. the wind is going to back down after sunset, as it almost does. the wind is still going to be stirring the atmosphere around by early tomorrow morning. it's the onshore breeze helping to keep the cooler marine air locked into tomorrow's inland valleys which is why it will be cooler than today. upper 40s in the north bay valleys. low 50s for pretty much everybody else. pleasantly cool for the middle of june. free air conditioning. open up the windows. get the fresh air in. you can leave the windows open. 60s around the bay. 70s inland. about 5 degrees below normal near the water. close to 10 to 15. upper 50s along the coast. a mix of upper 60s and low 70s around the south end and down the peninsula. low 70s in the santa clara valley as well. close to 10 degrees below normal. close to 15 for inland east bay. upper 60s in the try valley. the spots around 105 degrees last week, they're going to be in the low 70s from fairfield to antioch to brentwood.
mid- to upper 60s for oakland and the east bay. also mid- to upper 60s for most of the north bay. a little more cloud cover north of the golden gate along with the outside slim chance of a couple of passing sprinkles. but other than that, additional cloud cover sticking around to some extent. on saturday plenty of sunshine reemerging for the second half of the weekend. father's day brings a return to near normal temperatures. and the warm-up continues monday and tuesday. back up to around 90 in san jose for most of next week. looks like the warmest day is going to be tuesday, but we don't back down a lot wednesday and thursday. still looking at low to mid-90s for inland parts of the east bay and the north bay throughout the middle of next week. all right, paul, thank you. i'm elizabeth cook. coming up all new at 6:00 tonight, rent in the bay area is not going up as fast as the rest of the country. but will that trend continue? plus, the new high-tech step that san jose is taking to try and cut down on water waste. and after a pandemic delay, finally opening its doors in the south bay.
