. >> good morning everyone we are chatty today. [ laughter ] thank you for joining us on mornings on 2, i'm brian flores in for dave clark. >> good morning, i'm pam cook. it's almost 6:30. we are talking because we have you all of the trivia going around. jeremy, one of our viewers who has lived in the area for 27 years says you are pronouncing it correctly. it's a native american indian word. >> thank you for responding everybody. >> you get a lot of information out there. >> a lot of smart people out there. >> there are, i love your viewers. >> some of the fog is moving in and it could be thick. some of that is a sign of a cooler pattern. not as hot as yesterday, throw in the high clouds into the mix. mike nebeck. i have heard of him.
solid, already warm, for some, the fog is not a factor, in fact, the you are far enough inland, near 90s and almost 100. 50s for some, it will be a big cool down by the coast. vilejo cool with no winds. how about a nice 78 today? i will buy that. a bit of a breeze. the fog is really ramping up big time. these both mean a cooler pattern. the cooling will continue right into the weekend. sal, that leonard skynard played cool. >> nieces nice use of the word ewe ubiquous.

coming out of the supreme court. this is a day after president obama was handed a big victory on health care. here's the latest. >> reporter: good morning, pam. this could be a very important day here at the court. you look at the scene here. all of the people here, most appear to be advocates of same sex marriage. they may be disappointed today, not because the decision goes against them, but because a decision could not be made today. the decision could be in less than an hour, or it could be on monday. if we get a decision, that would be two big decisions in two days. a big cheer goes up as the health care advocates got the decision they were hoping for. a ruling ruled that subsidies
could be paid across the nation. writing for the majority, chief justice john roberts who has now twice rescued o obamacare from the challenges wrote this. >> reporter: the decision, though, was cheered by the president. >> we finally declared that in america, health care is not a prig for a few, be u a right for all. >> reporter: while this might have been the final court challenge for the law, republicans in congress are still promising to repeal and replace it. >> we are going to continue our efforts, do everything we can to put the american people back in charge of their own health care, not the federal government. >> reporter: back at the court,
in the meantime, another big decision is on deck. the court will have to decide where the equal rights requires nationwide acceptance. as we come back out live, certainly, there's a lot of expectation that this will come down today. in about a half an hour, something in that neighborhood, we should have a better idea. they could reach a middle of the ground decision that the same sex can be allowed, but the marriage has to be recognized in other states. it's a complicated kind of scenario for the courts. pam? >> that's correct, thank you,
doug'. we will watch for that and come back in about a half an hour. we are getting a report that san jose crime is on the decline decline. janajanine de la vega is live with more this morning. what is the mayor saying about all of this? >> reporter: brian, the mayor is saying that he is confident right now saying that san jose has the lowest amount of crime in the country per capita compared to other cities. the crime rate is down 39% compared to this time last year. so far, there have been 89 this year. -- 8 this year. if it continues at that pace, we will have the lowest in the nation. the lowest findings will be continued to be stud dis. the report shows that violent
crimes are de creasing it went from as high as 28 incidents in march down to 9 in may and when it comes to simple gang related situations such as force, that's also declining with one many april and one many may. the city officials are telling me it's because officers were hired to control the lower crime that's freeing up officer for the streets. they are shifting the time on the streets to the evening rather than in the day and the afternoon. now, this doesn't reflect other crimes in the city, but considering the officer have been leaving in droves, this is good news. the mayor will be here along with the police chief at city hall. that meeting starts at 7:45 and we plan on talking with them,
brian? >> yeah, as you mentioned, certainly a positive trend and hopefully it continues in the upcoming years. thank you. well, people in livermore are being credited for a quick response. anisa baxter was on her way home when her neighbor called and told her about the fire. when she got home, only a little bit was burning. >> i am feeling like i am really happy that my horses and my animals, there was a baby kitten inside that wouldn't have been able to get out. i am thankful that we are all alive. >> well, the fire burned about 53-acres. another person's home was damaged in the fire, but the firefighters were able to contain it to a laundry room. nascar is return tog the bay air -- returning to the bay area.
the three day event typically draws about 10,000 fans from across the country. the toyota save mart 350. now, if you are planning to be anywhere near the race this weekend, be prepare eds to go around. highway 31 and 37 are expected to be backed up. fans being encouraged to use the race way fun train or the express bus to help yeas -- ease traffic congestion. this is going to be an emotional weekend for jeff gordon. gordon has always been a fan favorite here at his home track
in the bay area he is hoping he has what it takes to win that race. >> i am so focused on getting there and winning the race, i haven't put a lot of thought into it being the last race. it's going to be an emotional day for me. i am going to be thinking about the fact that it's my last race there. sonoma hadma has been a great place for me and one of my favorite track to race on the circuit. >> when asked whether or not this is going to be his last race, he said never say never. the state assembly approved a bill last night that would make vaccinations mandatory for children to attend schools. lawmakers say that will help to
protect children and others against the out break of the disease. this started last year after the out break of measles at disney land. well, a little bit of a warning for you, the weather might be heating up, but a new revelation about swimming pools might keep you out of the water. the red eyes people get in the pools may not just be from the chlorine, but it could be from u rine mixing with the chlorine. >> well, that's good to know, i guess. well, the time now is 6:40. coming up, we have been talking about san francisco's pride festival which is coming this weekend. coming up, the big changes to the pink event in the castro

south carolina. the jail facility is in north charleston and it's maybe 10-15 minutes away. he is in an isolated unit. the sheriff's department is keeping him there because they want to make sure this is going to trial. he is not going to be in the general population where something could potentially happen to him, but he had a bond hearing on the murder charges. he was given a $1 million bond on a weapon's charge, but because he has not had a bond hear oken the murder charges, he is not able to bond out. he is being held there. >> all right, the memorial service is about to get underway. we will check in with you throughout the morning: >> well, the search for two escaped killers in new york is over 20 days old.
