this is what the hillside looks like behind tim alfords home on augusta drive in moraga. the hill gave way about year ago. his home was red tagged shortly thereafter and remains so to this day. that is because the hill... still looks like this."it's been just about a year and thing look just about like they did a year ago"the hill behind alford's home is owned by ebmud. on tuesday alford was one of several moraga residents who went to ebmud's board of directors meeting to demand some action in repairing the hill. "i think it is your realm to ask your staff and your counsel and your risk management department why it's taking so long, it is pretty expensive, we're renting a house nearby and we're still paying a mortgage""your staff wants to tell us that ebmud is not
responsible for a landslide on its property, if the property belonged to me, you or anybody else, they would be responsible for maintaining that property and fixing that landslide as a downhill land owner"the lafayette-moraga regional trail is also closed as a result of the slide"never did i ever think that day, that i would be standing here in front of you one year later, asking you to come and help resolve the issue""now this has moved to the litigation process"a civil lawsuit has been filed and has more or less tied the hands of the utility company doing anything to improve the conditions out there say ebmud general manager alex coate"and so once that is resolved then we will be in a position of understanding who is going to pay what to repair this slide" complicating the issue even more is that east bay regional parks, central contra costa sanitary district and the town of moraga may also have some liability."i have 3 children, pretty much every night when i put them to bed they ask me, daddy when can we go back to
our house? i say, i don't know" in moraga haaziq madyun kron4news all lanes on interstate-680 through dublin are now open following repairs on a massive pothole. caltrans blocked off the number three lane and the north mission on-ramp to northbound-680 for several hours. this is what the pothole looked like before and during repairs. drivers found themselves stuck in a huge traffic jam during tonight's commute... we received several emails from driver stuck in the backup. concrete that filled the hole took a bit longer to dry than crews expected. all lanes of 680 have reopened within the last two hours. .. a san rafael woman is dead after being killed in a three-vehicle crash in san bernardino county.the incident happened yesterday afternoon. . . as 55-year-old kristina carey traveled on highway-58.a small charter bus traveling eastbound. . . veered off into the westbound lanes. . .hitting carey as well as

of physical contact. injuries are always a threat. soccer is one of those sports. tonight... reporter jeff jones exposes some of the facts and myths about concussions and athletes.... it's important information for every parent with a child in a competitive sport. nat: okay. here we go.meet cindy cone, back in her olympic and world cup days, she was cindy parlow. a soccer stud, who always played the game for the right reason. sot: every level i've been at i've only done it because it is fun. so as a youth, in college, professionally, with the national team, the
olympics, the world cup - i mean, that stuff's fun!vo: three national championships, two gold metals and one world cup. yeah its safe to say cindy has seen some pretty fun times. but the former tar heel has also experienced some low points in her career.sot: injuries are the worst part about sports. and for me my worst injuries were with concussions. i ultimately decided to retire due to complications with post- concussion syndrome. vo: by definition a concussion is violent shaking of the brain. and as painful as that sounds cindy knows how it feels. and its a feeling she's had more times than you can imagine. sot: i mean, if i ball-parked it, i'd probably say around 100.vo: you heard right. around one hundred concussions in her career. and cindy is not alone. along with football and hockey, women's soccer has one of the highest rates of concussions in all of sports. and the most dangerous play on the soccer field? headers. but not for the reason you might think. sot: heading a ball itself has not been demonstrated to be dangerous, but usually when you go up to head a ball, there's an opponent who goes up to head the same ball. so, we'll see one head hit another. we'll see an elbow hit a head. vo:
doctor mihalik and cindy agree. physically its impossible to eliminate concussions. but science has found some effective and not-so-effective ways to monitor them more closely.sot: the devices that you see here are head impact monitoring systems. so, they allow us to capture data, collect the data. some are viewable in real time and others are seen only after the fact. there are other devices called head impact indicators. and there's a growing commercial marketplace for these as you can imagine, preying on the concerns for parents whose kids are enrolled in some of these sports. vo: so head impact monitors are good but devices like these that light up and allegedly signal a concussion - well, doctor mihalik says these aren't all they're cracked up to be. sot: what we have found in those types of devices is if you have a thousand triggers, we were seeing that fewer than four will actually be an actual concussion. vo: so if head impact indicators aren't the best defense to concussions, what are? maybe just some well-thought-out questions.sot: you're going to ask a lot of questions before you drop your kid off at daycare, but how many parents ask those same questions when they drop their
kid off at a pop warner field and go off and run errands for the afternoon? who's coaching? what's the training and the qualifications of that coach? what's going to happen if there's an injury? is there someone there to even recognize and manage an injury? who's taking care of the equipment? who's fitting the equipment? these are all things that i think parents should ask. and if they're not satisfied with the answer, that's not the organization they should be doing business with.vo: so those are the questions to ask coaches, but what about the question parents are asking themselves right now? are sports really worth it? even after a hundred or more concussions, cindy says the answer is yes. sot: it has transformed my life. my best friends and my community come from the sport. i've traveled the world because of the sport. and it taught me so many life lessons. i would not be the person i am today without the sport of soccer. reporting in raleigh, jeff jones, kron4 news."

what you are about to see happens all too often around the bay.the school district and teachers have tried everything to change parents behavior outside the school and when all else failed guess who they called next people behaving badly school is where we send our children so they can learn to be good citizens, but the fact is, learning starts long before they enter the front doors case in point i'm at rodeo hills elementary school in the town of rodeo, when school lets out . well let's hear from connie a resident who lives across from the school ok wait just give me a second

this they clean out the cars in front of our house and just throw the garbage out of their cars so there's garbage all the time dirty diapers whatever it's just unreal what they do the school buses cant even get to the school because of the double parking and illegal u-turns despite the no u-turn signs now there is a parking lot for the parents to use some so use the parking lot however when they do but most if not all ignore the no left turn sign when leaving the parking lot nats: ambiance what happens here is the purest definition of chaos connie tole me that sometimes the parents curse her out ok thank you, i don't want to be on tjat film yea too late for that maam that i'm telling you i don't want nobody to see me on that film put me on that if you want to if i find out it's going to be a problem looks like i'm going to have a problem yup, we are teaching our children well. notin rodeo stanley roberts kron 4 news several lanes of interstate- 280 in san francisco...shut down right now.thanks for joining us at eleven...i'm steve aveson. and i'm pam moore.
