7:01 am
way to start off this morning. long as you don't mind that crisp feel to the air. getting another perspective of financial district. let's take a look at our weather graphics right now. and we're seeing some clear skies right there over a the transamerica building and no fog whatsoever. it's hard to believe that there's such a difference. what you head up into the sierra nevada passing storm system resulting in a good dose of snow up there. that's only going to pick up tonight into tomorrow for the sierra. in the meantime, today, we're just tapping into the cool and breezy feel of the system a little bit windier near the coastline right now. and that's going to help those temperatures in the 30's and 40's feel just a little bit co-ler. definitely want the extra layers. san jose at 39 dublin at 35 right now in napa at freezing at 32 degrees. todd, thanks for that. it's a holiday and the traffic is certainly reflective of that. >> however, we do have an issue. this is in the north bay up in petaluma along one. 0, one southbound. if you're traveling there north of east washington street got an accident. so we're seeing a
7:02 am
slight delay heading into the city. makes that free must exit. look at that. 7 minutes at 07:00am i've not seen that for months headed across towards the peninsula. 13 minutes for your drive. there. looking at the south bay along one o one. 85 in the low part about 27 minutes and highway 6.80, travelers from dublin to fremont about 13 darya. james, back to you. thanks for a 7 '02. and today in oakland, parents and kids at parker elementary a protest because the district he's going through so far with its plan to close several schools in the next 2 years. yeah, the protests apparently taking place this afternoon across from that school kron 4. sarah stinson following the latest for us. >> sarah, the council just recently voted to reaffirm its decision to shut the schools down. but the parents say that's not going to >> yeah, the oakland school board, they're moving forward with its plan to close and merge 12 schools. but guess what? students, staff and parents say, well, we'll continue on with our plan and
7:03 am
that is to protest and to fight for what we believe in. and that is to keep all schools in oakland open. this fight continues very much so starts today as well. it's been happening nonstop. we have video actually from over the weekend as protests as well. you can see video that happened in oakland. this is all after the school board voted to close and merge a dozen schools earlier this month to deal with an expected future budget deficit on friday, the school board voted to uphold this decision to close and merge the schools despite major public outcry, including weekly protests and even a hunger strike by 2 teachers. there's 2 board members that wanted to postpone the closures, trying to do anything they could. these are the 2 board members that have been vocal against those who have voted against this. they're trying to postpone that for parker and community day schools until next year. but majority voted on that board to uphold the
7:04 am
original decision. the school district says 35% of its schools are enrolled at below sustainable levels, causing a multimillion dollar budget deficit. we talked with a parent of a student. she really describe to us how this closure is affecting her daughter. >> she's she says she's your friend and she wants your teachers. my oldest daughter. i've talked to her in depth about she's very hurt. they talk about how scared they are to go. so where were they don't know anybody and don't have any friends. >> well, the district has released this short statement over the weekend in response to the ongoing criticism saying on friday night, february 18th, ust board of education upheld their previous decision from the meeting on february 8. the district is focused on ensuring all impacted students have as smooth and easy, a transition as possible. and that transition is what you
7:05 am
just heard. a lot of people are fearing. a lot of people just think it's wrong to close the schools taking away resources from those students in need the most. now there is ongoing protests, one today at parker elementary school right across the street from it. and that is at 2 this afternoon. we reached out to the organizers were trying to catch up with them before they hit that picket line. again, i'm sarah stinson reporting live back to you in studio. thank you, sarah. >> it is 7, 0, 5, we have some breaking news from overnight. the man is in critical condition this morning after being hit by a car in millbrae. the accident happened at the intersection of highway 82 in hillcrest boulevard a little after 3 this morning. investigators say the man was not in the crosswalk when he was struck. the driver is cooperating with the investigation will keep you updated as it unfolds. meanwhile, doctors and researchers are closely watching a subvariant of the omicron variant. they're calling it be a 2. it may be more contagious and it may be
7:06 am
more severe than the original omicron. not again. how we spoke to an infectious disease expert about what we know about this new variant kron four's amanda hari has the details. >> the infectious disease expert that i spoke to says the ba 2 subvariant of omicron is here in the united states. and he says, although it isn't the dominant variant, it has. the potential is certainly spreading around the world. it's been identified in 74 countries to date. >> it's here. health officials continue to learn more about the omicron subvariant to be a 2. >> also referred to as the stealth variant uc berkeley, infectious disease specialist doctor john swartzberg says it's only about 4% of the case in the u.s. right now. but that number is growing. >> a couple weeks ago, it was less than one percent. so it's increasing. he says in some other countries it's become the dominant strain. >> and that's because experts believe it's more contagious.
7:07 am
then its parent variant omicron also known as ba one. i think there's a scientific consensus now that is somewhere between 30 and 50%. >> more transmissible. >> then one doctor swartzberg says there's new studies coming out about the subvariant all the time and one came out wednesday saying you can also be more severe, suggested that. >> ba 2 might be able to evade immunity. we have from vaccines or previous infection better than omicron. that same group had some evidence to suggest perhaps it might make them sicker than omicron debts. >> more like delta. he believes local leaders may have removed masking requirements in shared spaces too soon. i would >> think that the prudent thing to do would be to wait until we've not these cases way down. wade, below where we started with with omicron doctor swartzberg did tell me this is all preliminary
7:08 am
information. >> and to expect to learn more about too in the coming weeks. amanda hari kron. 4 news. and the fda is considering a 4th dose of covid vaccine in the fall. they're trying to figure out if an additional shot would reinforce our molecular defenses. >> which dropped after you got the first booster and they're also considering what age group that would be authorized to get this towson weathersby says pacific to omicron orange. more general pfizer's ceo says an omicron specific formula could generate enough protections so that people would only need a booster once a year. queen elizabeth has covid tested positive over the weekend. the 95 year-old british monarch is experiencing mild cold like symptoms. the queen elizabeth had been in direct contact with the prince charles and he had the virus. the palace says the queen has been fully vaccinated and boosted, but like you and me, she's still got it. so to justin bieber,

good morning. yeah. the last one was december. the last big snowfall we had. >> a little snow early january and then last monday, a little want to but not like what we're ensure that is a little bit. the bench is just a little dusting out there on those harder surfaces, which typically don't allow the snow to accumulate during that first fall, but we will be seeing snow piling up tonight into tomorrow. so these benches are going to be covered in more and more of it over the next 24 hours here, grassy surfaces definitely already seeing the snowfall piling up. this is diamond pyak right above lake tahoe right here. skies are clear for the bay area. the sierra nevada getting that first dose of snowfall that intensifies later on in your forecast. and really going to start to see that 18 inches right around the lake tahoe region piling up starting tonight into tomorrow. as for the bay, we could see a couple of sprinkles tonight into tomorrow morning. really nothing beyond that, though. nothing significant for the bay. so overall are dry trend does continue here. while the
7:17 am
sierra starting to show signs of breaking a pattern that we hope really only continues into march would love to see some more heavy mountain snowfall into march and maybe even some showers here in the bay. that's what we're keeping our fingers crossed for anyways. yesterday was already little practice run for the weather that we have for the week ahead of us, which is generally cooler in pretty breezy. it's going to be another windy day today with winds gusting up to a 20 to 30 mile per hour range that paired with our temperatures mostly only in the 50's does mean that you're not going to get away with the t shirts and the shorts anymore. it's definitely back to the sweaters and the jackets for at least the course of your next 4 or 5 days. temperatures and mostly the mid to upper 50's for the bay today we do have one exception and that's antioch hitting 60 degrees other than that to expect those cool brisk conditions continuing all across the day and actually even colder temperatures for much of the week ahead of us tomorrow being the very coal dust with that chance of an isolated shower possible tuesday night
7:18 am

7:20 am
pick up the blistering pace even more this year to an average of one launch per week. spacex successfully completed 31 launches in 2021. and that was a beating its previous record of 26 lunches in twenty-twenty. now for context, spacex represented about a 5th of the world's successful rocket launches last year. roughly keeping pace with the country of china. jeff bezos made news when he his brother actor william shatner in a crew flew into space last year. the orgin recently. but honey bee robotics said it's best known for developing robotic systems, notably drills and other mechanisms for use on space missions. twenty-twenty global space-related activities generated 447 billion dollars with commercial work coming from us. 80 1% of that should nato sullivan, a self-described interplanetary economist harvard business school. the spending money on space actually as way to increase the economy on earth very efficiently, noting that for every dollar the government spends in the space industry translates to close to $50 and
7:21 am
societal value like skilled jobs, new products and services and more research and development programs. this year should be a big one for space exploration with a pair of massive rockets. both more powerful than the saturn 5 that flew the apollo astronauts to the moon. we're getting ready to fly as part of nasa's artemis mission, which aims to return astronauts to the lunar surface by 2000. 25 from new york, i'm jane king with your presence day business report. thank you, james. >> 7.21 is the time a proposed federal no fly list is getting a bit of pushback now from lawmakers, supporters say they want to do this to help prevent violent and hateful behavior from passengers. others, though, say it goes too far. last week, the faa said nearly 6,000 incidents of unruly passengers were reported in 2021. many of those incidents involved mask disputes. one airline called the trend dangerous. >> as the saying goes houston, we have a problem and that problem is some folks on the
7:22 am
airplane are making it a problem for all of us anything. it takes my attention away from the aircraft no matter what phase of flight is immediately putting everyone at risk. >> a group of lawmakers recently sent a letter to attorney general merrick garland saying it's wrong to equate people resisting mask mandates to terrorists. they point out that airlines already have the power to ban customers on their own. >> it's 7.22. and coming up, one lawmaker is pushing for pay equality and transparency. we'll see what that means to us in california. and you could missing pandemic relief money. if you file your taxes. we'll tell you how when we talked to a cpa after the break.

7:26 am
of this should be taxable. this is all part of the cares. act first. child tax credits know shevaun says families only receive 50% of the total amount back in june of 2021. and the remaining 50% will become available as soon as you file say, for example, you qualified for 10,000. you've got 5,000 in june, you would still have a remaining $5,000 and child tax credit that could either go to your tax bounce or >> create a refund if you know any tax after you've paid and stimulus checks are working the same way as either a refund. if you're supposed to $2400 and 2 installments, the other 1200 that you received would then serve as a credit or credit towards your taxes may be ran a business and you you have 7,000 in self employment tax, the credit would still go to paying off that balance. but it's important to know what you're owed. if you file through cpa or do it yourself. no shevaun says to include if you have any missing stimulus checks

7:33 am
name. it's not the first time that name has been scrubbed from bay area locations. let me show you video. the school in marine county. look at that. you can see it's rubbed away, sir. francis drake. this is a high school in marin county that was removed last year. its new name is archie williams. he was born in oakland at one point in his life. he lived work at that high school and he was a famous olympian back in 1936, it took 9 months of deliberating, but they went ahead shows archie williams. so that school ho longer goes by the drake name. also, if you notice this, you this is back 2 years ago in 2020. this is that the larkspur ferry terminal. this statue was there for a long time and then they took a gun in the overnight hours as well because they said, wait a minute, we know more about sky and it just rubs people the wrong way, which is by that statue is gone. the name sir
7:34 am
francis drake boulevard. it's just so long ago. many cities, one city in particular, fairfax, they chose to take that stretch where they that stretch go through their city. that name is gone. it's now called the me walk trail to pay homage to the indigenous people in that area hundreds of years ago. other cities where that boulevard runs through, they chose to go keep sir francis drake boulevard for now. so a lot of things going on. we live in a whole new world. i know a lot of statues from the south there were removed as well as people revisit history. find out more about these people that were statues in the landmarks named after. so wait a minute, maybe we want to change that. that's exactly what you're referring to. that great hotel. it was risky for me. i got her. 22 years ago it was so famous even though i didn't need a hotel. everybody knows the hotel, but you will know it by a different it.

>> sure enough. all right. thank you very much. well, 7.34 is the time and and happening right now. chp is looking for the driver involved in a deadly hit and run crash that killed a woman last thursday night on highway 1, 1, just south of healdsburg. the woman had run out of gas to she was outside her car in the silver ram pickup truck. ran into her struck and killed her and took off. they say that truck likely has front end damage. san francisco police are investigating the death of a 16 year-old girl. the teenager's body was found in the soma neighborhood friday morning. investigators think that it may have been an overdose. and the san francisco medical examiner calls the death suspicious so far. police haven't given us ideas of their investigation of the circumstances. >> a california lawmakers now looking into eliminating pay inequality through a bill that would, in essence disclose workers salaries. now, this bill would force companies with more than 100 employees to publicly report. how much
7:36 am
people are being paid by gender and ethnicity. the author of the bill says it builds on previous legislation and in addition to ensuring workers have waged transparency, the bill also covers contracted employees. the nonprofit equal rights advocates supports the effort. >> sometimes those contract workers outnumber the direct employees of the other company and they often receive less pay worse benefits. so it almost does kind of subclass of workers who are being treated differently than the direct employees and having this kind of pay data being reported and having employers have and companies have report this pay will ensure that we have oversight over these contract workers to ensure that they are being paid fairly. >> and the bill will have to go through several different legislative review processes before it makes it to the governor's desk soon as that could happen, perhaps august 31st. pets in california could
7:37 am
soon get some new protections under a bill introduced to the state assembly this week. it's called the dog and cat bill of rights. and the bill's author miguel santiago says a record number of animals were adopted during the pandemic. as people were looking for companionship. but many of those pets now are being offloaded to shelters as people go back to work and don't want the animals anymore. he says these animals deserve safety and security. and if this bill is approved, it would mean that dogs and cats would be granted 7 fundamental rights. they include freedom from exploitation and abuse access to water, food, shelter, as well as daily mental and physical stimulation. >> its 7.37, and still ahead on the kron 4 morning news, we're celebrating black history. and this morning we're going to hear from a sports agent who has some great words about breaking barriers and what it takes to 16. >> and steph curry knows what it takes. a lot of threes. a whole lot of threes more than any other nba game. and he was the mvp of the all-star game.

7:42 am
>> this is definitely special. the first you've got to honor kobe and his life and his legacy with this trophy. yop know, the thought that went into i can't spinoffs out my head, but i know everything on this trophy means something in terms of. his life and what he represented. congressman is on the cordon. want to have been all-star mvp trophy and no for it to be the first one to death in a special. >> here to mention that the first time the mvp award is named kobe bryant's. yeah. and it's a first step is over, gotten ppl star. so that was cool. also named to the nba's 75th anniversary team to say he had a whole bunch of things to celebrate yesterday. as for the warriors, well, obviously don't come back to play until after the all-star break. so the first game will be this coming thursday from its the portland trail. blazers looks like we'll be right back spend that amount of time.
