the mistake of driving under the influence... and, an officer gives you a choice ... between spending a night in jail... or, an unlocked dorm.( steve ) that option has been available in san mateo county for almost 25 years... made possible by a program called "first chance"... highlighted here in a story by kron four's philippe djegal. (philippe) a rough night out, stopped and arrested by police for drinking and driving... and, this man was brought here... a sobering station in burlingame -- where the doors are unlocked and there is no security.janel guinane/program director- "the idea was treatment rather than incarceration." janel guinane (gunn-ann) runs "first chance." a program operated by the non-profit organization starvista.. in san mateo county. guinane says since the program started
8:14 pm
nearly a quarter century ago... some 60-thousand people have been treated here.janel guinane/program director- "it can happen to anyone, you know, um, a lot of times its not the chronic alcoholic that gets pulled over for dui. its someone who makes the mistakes, someone who miscalculates how much they've had. someone who drinks, you know, just a little bit over the limit. um, and someone who never does it again." the sobering station, as it's called, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. it's up to the arresting officer whether the intoxicated person is brought here or taken to the main jail in redwood city. the san mateo county sheriff's office adds though that that person can't have a history of violence.det. sal zuno/san mateo county sheriff's office- "the doors are not secured, so if i leave you at first chance, you could walk out. now, if that happens, all they're going to do is they're going to call us, and call the police and say 'this person who you just booked into first chance just walked out the door and you're going to get into more trouble and more charges." san mateo county district attorney steve wagstaffe says almost all law enforcement agencies in the county are invovled in the program. those agencies pay a fee each year based on the size of their city or town, totaling about 800-thousand dollars combined, which keeps the program running.steve wagstaffe/dist
8:15 pm
rict attorney- "they're still cited, and uh, the police agency will refer the case to my office. we'll file misdemeanor charges on the person. they come to court just the same as if they'd been booked into the county. the only difference is that they're not booked into the county jail, they're taken to the first chance program." wagstaffe says programs like this are partly the reason why there is no jail overcrowding in san mateo county. and, is esepcially helpful to agencies like the pacifica police department -- which doesn't even have a jail... just holding cells.steve wagstaffe/district attorney- "they don't have to take an officer off the street for three or four hours while they drive the person down here to redwood city to book them in, go through all that process and then drive back to daly city or pacifica. so, uh, its been a wonderful program and law enforcement pays for it." all employees at "first chance" are also licensed or registered councilors...janel guinane/program director- "it's a wonderful thing." and, they help d-u-i offenders get treatment during and after their stay. in san mateo county, philippe djegal, kron four news.

sources.and while no final decision has been made yet, according to the sources, it's coming soon.electronic devices larger than a smartphone were banned from carry-on luggage on flights from 10 airports in the middle east and africa back in march. the u.s. said it was because of intelligence suggesting terrorists could hide explosives in those larger devices.but the travel industry is not on board with the ban expansion. for one, they don't believe it's any safer for electronic items to be in check luggage samuel burke/ cnn technology correspondent: "experts are very concerned about all the sudden having all these lithium ion batteries in the bottom of a airplane. if one catches on fire and explodes, and if they have other lithium ion battery around it, it's like having matches all next to each other."another hang-up that this could hurt bookings, especially for business travelers who count on having time to work while in the air. more than 350 flights a day travel from europe to the u.s. and it's not just the airlines that would be hit. 40 percent of overseas travelers are from europe. and those travelers tend to be big spenders once they get here, averaging between $3000 and $4000 per trip, according to the u.s. travel of now, there are no plans to expand the ban to flights leaving the u.s.i'm andy rose, reporting.>

pg&e learned a tragic lesson we can never forget. this gas pipeline ruptured in san bruno. the explosion and fire killed eight people.
8:58 pm
pg&e was convicted of six felony charges including five violations of the u.s. pipeline safety act and obstructing an ntsb investigation. pg&e was fined, placed under an outside monitor, given five years of probation, and required to perform 10,000 hours of community service. we are deeply sorry. we failed our customers in san bruno. while an apology alone will never be enough, actions can make pg&e safer. and that's why we've replaced hundreds of miles of gas pipeline, adopted new leak detection technology that is one-thousand times more sensitive, and built a state-of-the-art gas operations center. we can never forget what happened in san bruno. that's why we're working every day to make pg&e the safest energy company in the nation.

(chuckles) we're going to be late for dinner. i pushed our reservations. check this baby out. energy plus. that means not only am i washing away the filth and the fluids that people get on your hotel sheets, i'm also on the front line of the fight against global warming. (dull thud) what was that? foreign object in the wash barrel. it happens. it looks gooey. won't it gum up your machine? (dull thud) whatever it is, this baby can handle it. (dull thud)
