close the schools came after lengthy deliberation and with, quote, great reluctance. in the past few years, the district has seen the number of students drop, losing 1,000 students in all. in the past months, parents have been weighing in on the proposal to close schools in the district. >> i understand the position of the district and everything, you know, trying to save money and so forth. but i don't think they put a lot of thought into it. >> reporter: the superintendent notified families yesterday in a statement that read in part, our schools have a long and excellent tradition of providing a high quality education to our students through strong and instructional programs and community involvement. this same quality of education will be evident in the new school communities that emerge. however i also understand that this will take time and that a profound sadness will be felt with the closing of schools. we are all committed to doing all we can to make these changes as smooth as possible. the board is set to have another meeting on march 1st. the board hoping to have a lot of the details about which

provide paperwork on their employees to show that all of them are in the country legally. businesses in san francisco, san jose, and sacramento received the notices. a spokesman for ice says the operation reflects stepped-up enforcement of laws that bars businesses from hiring undocumented workers. last month ice agents raided 7- eleven stores across the united states, including here in the bay area. new at 9:00, president has authorized the release of a controversial house memo about the russia investigation. the four-page memo by california congressman david nunes reportedly alleges fbi misconduct. in its investigation of potential ties between russia and trump's presidential campaign. at the white house this morning, the president said about the information in the memo, quote, a lot of people should be ashamed-themselves, end quote. the fbi had urged the white house to keep it classified saying the agency has grave concerns about the memo's

the elder. now hops are it. people love hoppy beers. this takes it to the ultimate extreme with the big just delicious huge hop character of pine and citrus and grapefruit and all of these flavors come from the hops. >> reporter: i'm going to give it a shot here. i know it is early. i'll give it a try. delicious. >> it just hops all the way through. >> reporter: it is all hops. >> and it is bitter with a long dry finish down your throat. >> reporter: did you ever think this beer would be drawing this kind of crowds when you started making it? >> obviously not. we started making it in 2005. from 2005 to 2009, you could get it until april. it was 2010 that everything changed. >> now it is gone in two weeks. >> yeah, two weeks. >> reporter: let me ask you, this beer alone draws so many people from around the world here. >> yeah. >> reporter: tourism is very
important to sonoma county. obviously this area was hit hard. >> yeah. >> reporter: by the wildfires back in october. do you feel you're playing a role to help the community bounce back? >> that's our hope. you certainly can't compare someone losing their house to a beer release. there is an economic hit to the area, like you said. and so it is our hope that this will be a catalyst to bring back tourism. two years ago pliny the younger economic impact was just under $5 million for the two-week period. we're hoping that the same thing will happen this year. not just help us but all of the local hotels and neighboring restaurants and wineries and other breweries and what have you. >> reporter: absolutely. cheers to that. >> cheers. >> reporter: cheers. thank you for having us in today. one more taste for the road, you guys. delicious beer. fantastic beer. they're opening the doors at 11:00 this morning. the crew getting everything ready. >> oh, yes. >> reporter: a lot of folks waiting for it.

>> tracking a big slide on stocks. we see the dow jones is down by almost one and one half percent, losing 375 points right now. a full one percentage drop on the s&p and nasdaq as well. we're about to share dramatic video that shows a father of three daughters who were sexually abused by larry nassar lunging at the doctor during a court hearing in michigan. >> i can't do that. >> give me one minute. >> you know i can't do that. that's not how the legal system works. >> oh. >> the father initially told the judge he wanted five minutes in a locked room with nassar. he lunged at him and got pretty close to nassar before being subdued by court officers and
taken away in handcuffs. two of the man's daughters had given statements earlier in court. the judge called a brief recess but testimony from the victims has since resumed. more than 30 victims have given statements so far in this case that focuses on his work with an elite michigan gymnastics club. during a similar hearing last week, more than 150 witnesses testified. mark farrell says he will not run in the general election next year. in a one on one interview that we did inside of his office that once belonged to his good friend, the late mayor ed lee, he told me the reason why. >> san francisco city hall. upstairs room 200. a new leader is settling in. mayor mark farrell. >> it is surreal. it is surreal. it obviously affects every part of your life. >> it will take place february 24th. >> reporter: from the daily meetings and appearances. >> talk about the security
detail. is it strange having people follow you? >> yeah. it is one of the bigger differences. >> everywhere you go. >> everywhere i do. >> reporter: two weeks ago he was district 2 supervisor. it ended the night of january 23rd. >> the committee of the whole has selected supervisor farrell. >> going into last tuesday's board of supervisors meeting, did you already know what the outcome was going to be? >> no. i knew it was a possibility but nothing is an surety. especially not with the san francisco board of supervisors. >> the argument from some supervisors that you were part of the back room deal, old school san francisco politics. not that that is illegal. >> sure. >> that happens. it is politics. but that didn't occur. >> nothing could be further from the truth. again, there were so many discussions happening across all sides of the aisle with so many different people and theories. and i guarantee you that i was not part of every discussion. >> reporter: and the discussions he was part of, farrell says the focus was
never on one individual, only about one city. >> it was about what is in the best interest of the city. and i think that came through at the end. >> reporter: farrell replaces london breed who became acting mayor after the death of ed lee who also retained her position as president of the board of supervisors. then early last month, breed announced she would run for mayor in the june 5th special election. the night the board voted to make farrell the interim mayor, there were heated words from the public, accusations that the board was sexist and racist. >> we have reached out to folks who were disappointed in the vote to make sure that i continue to be someone as a supervisor and now mayor who represents every single san francisco resident. again i come back to the fact that this was not about one person. this was not about an individual. this was about a person and a position and someone having four positions. and that is not something that anyone felt comfortable with.
>> reporter: farrell announced that in december he would not run for mayor in the special election. and now he also says he has ruled out running for mayor in next year's general election. >> have you ruled out the option of november 2019 running for mayor? >> yes. >> there has to be a part of you now that you're here, the mayor of san francisco, that may be pulling you in going maybe, maybe i can do this. >> i took this job and this responsibility a week ago now with the realization that it would be half a year in office. with that and not having a campaign to worry about, i have the luxury of not having to play politics. i have the luxury of just helping san francisco residents. >> reporter: mayor ed lee was also one to focus on affordable housing, public safety, getting homeless into shelters. they were issues dear to him and issues that farrell will continue to fight for in honor of ed loo he. >> sitting in this room just two months ago, this was his
office. do you ever have a moment during the day when you think about ed lee? >> every day. he was a professional colleague but he was very much also a friend. >> you feel his presence. >> all the time. >> if there's one thing that he taught you that you hold on tight, what would it be? >> i think what i admired most about mayor lee was his humana approach to everything. >> city hall is still mourning the death of ed lee. and so is mark farrell. he told a story about the last time that he saw lee. the christmas tree lighting certificate moan knee golden gate park. that night, his youngest son tried to flip the switch. >> i said no you have to come back to daddy. this is the mayor's job. i didn't realize that mayor lee was standing right next to me and overheard that. when he -- when he went to turn
on the light, he gave some remarks and started a countdown. he said come here. he put his finger on top of his and they did it together. that type of stuff you never forget. that is just the real human aspect of mayor lee to me. >> farrell, a man with his own priorities but a man who looks to lead with that same human touch that he admired and saw in ed lee. >> and one other story he told, again, when you walk by city hall, you see it on tv, you don't understand the emotions of what is going in there and the mourning taking place of edly. he tried to go in the office and he couldn't do it. so he had staff actually move the furniture around in the office so that when he came in there it looked a little different and it wouldn't remind him of ed lee. >> right. >> so obviously a lot of emotions still in there. as for the future, the special
election -- i said how long will you be the interim mayor. is it june 6th that the new mayor is sworn in? he said it will take a while. it could be mid summer or late summer. if it is a tight race between the candidates, then they have to the get the election results certified and so forth. it could be late summer by the time he is out of city hall. >> he definitely ruled out running in 2019. >> he looked me in the eye. if he is lying, we will have a conversation about that later about that. >> he could change his mind. >> of course he could. >> he said he didn't want it. >> but as of now he wants to focus on the family. he enjoys youth coaching, as i do. i get that. he has three young children. maybe not in november of '19. maybe it is five years later or nine years later. we will see him down the road when he leaves office. >> a good talk. >> yes. >> coming up, heart health for teenagers. an event happening in san francisco to provide high school students with two very important heart screenings that could help save a life. n:3:3:3
>> today at a school in san francisco known as si, 200 students will be given an echo and ekg. >> the tests are being made available by the gable heartbeat foundation. >> she is with her two children, mateo and grace. thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you so much for having us. we appreciate it. >> of course. before we get to the exams going on behind you, for our viewers, if you don't mind telling the story of michael and what happened to him and how we ended up here today. >> yeah. about eight years ago, we lost michael gable, my husband, their dad, from hyper tropic, which is a thickening of the heart muscle. we lost him suddenly.
he had no signs whatsoever. and he was in great shape. and then two weeks after that, my daughter fell into heart failure. and what we learned from the two things that happened and obviously grace is here with us and doing great, it was a genetic condition in our family that is caused by a mutation of one of orogens -- our genes. from there we knew we had to do something. michael would have been proactive and tried to stop this from happening in other people's families. >> you implemented this program at other schools through your foundation. you have actually helped save lives. tell me about your findings. >> correct. >> when you screen young teenagers. >> yes. when we do screenings, we do both an ekg and an echocardiogram. we feel we need to do both at the same time to get more of a
complete heart health preparedness. and they go back and everything is read by pediatric cardiologists. from there, we're able to see if there is any abnormalities in some numbers that look abnormal. and then we will contact the parents if we do find anything that is abnormal from numbers. and normally within a heart screening of 200 kids, we normally find three to four kids that have numbers outside of normal limits. >> michelle, these tests can be very expensive. and i know that the kids here are being provided with these tests. but if a parent is watching at home, how do they know that -- you know, that they might want to test their kids for this? >> absolutely. and that's why we do it. and that's why we do all of the fundraising for the heart screenings and the aid that we provide schools and gyms and
cities, because one of the tests, especially the echocardiogram is hard to get unless you're symptomatic. the point is we need to catch it before someone is symptomatic. it could cost $2,000 to get one done at a doctor's office. we try to provide the screenings for free. we have help from sponsors from many, many community supporters. and then you can find our events online. >> i remember being on that campus back in 1990 when i was a freshman and owen fitzgerald collapsed and lost his life in something similar. how does it feel when you're doing these tests and no one had any idea what is going on with their heart and it is discovered that they actually have an issue? >> i'll tell you, i get chills. because you never want to find anything. we're hoping that we find nothing and that everyone is
okay. but when we do find out that we catch something, i just -- i just know that it's all worth it. and i know that that's what michael would want us to do. and he is so proud of these kids to be so passionate and involved with gable heartbeats. and so proud of everyone who helps us out. our board, we can't be more thankful because we are saving lives. >> gable heartbeats. a wonderful foundation. thank you for all that you do. and thank you for mateo for joining you. great to hear that grace is doing great. have a wonderful event out there in san francisco. >> thank you guys so much. we really appreciate it. >> of course. >> coming up in a moment on mornings on 2 the 9. a promising high school student murdered in the richmond area 24 years ago. you will meet the young film maker trying to keep her spirit alive with a new movie.
>> here is another view over oakland where you see high clouds overhead. the high clouds will not prohibit the temperatures from warming. in fact we're warmer at this hour than 24 hours ago. low 50s right now in livermore. san jose, 58. in santa rosa, it is 58 outside your doors. 8 degrees warmer in the north bay of santa rosa. and in the sat bay of san jose, by four. as we take a look at the view from up above, you can see just the mid and high level clouds continuing to stream through overhead for today. and the afternoon highs, are you read other for the spring time feeling? 75 the high for oakland today.
75 for the inland areas of livermore. 74 in san jose. into the north bay, 75 expected in napa. here is a look at your extended forecast. not much change will occur over your weekend. even in the extended forecast, temperatures will remain well above average. and, again, likely to break some records this weekend. back to you. >> thank you, rosemary. 24 years ago 15-year-old cecilia was walking home in san pablo. she took a shortcut that day taking her through donor elementary where she was raped and stabbed to together. an 18-year-old man was sentenced to life in prison. >> it shook the community to the core, including jay lopez who was only 8 at the time. he made a movie about her short life called love ceci. thank you both for coming in. >> thank you for having us. >> you were so young when this happened. >> yes.
>> in '94. a lot of times when the killer is convicted and sent off to prison, the story disappears. >> yes. >> you wanted to bring it back. >> yes. >> why? >> i felt it was important that her legacy could continue to this day. her story never left richmond. i felt like it was a -- we needed to tell her story to the whole entire world. the fact that not a lot of people know richmond because in our community there are so noting gangs and murders but this one was special. this one was very to the heart. >> i can imagine especially for you, angie, to play a young lady who -- who was killed in such a brutal way, you probably wanted to do her and her story justice. how did you do that? >> exactly. i just stayed true to the role. i used a lot of my personal experience and used a lot of violence that young women face throughout our world. and not only is it ceci's story
but a lot of young women in the world that go unnamed and go never heard of or just unknown and we never get to give them justice. and not only did her assailant incarcerated but this was another form of justice for her, to get her story out there. to know there can be healing through art and retelling her story. >> her mom, father, are they still alive and in richmond. >> no. they are still alive. i saw them last night. we hung out for a little bit. >> did you knock on their door and approach them with this? what was their reaction. >> i did a year and a half research on my own before i reached out to the parents. when i finally did, i was -- it was nerve racking. it was definitely scary. they were hesitant at first. i promised them this is going to be a beautiful legacy for their daughter to continue on forever. and they agreed.
after that, the ball continued to roll. it was a 7-year process. >> what is the heart of -- do you focus on that particular tragic day? do you focus on her earlier years in life. >> i focused on the last five months of her life. she had her quinceanera and murdered five months later. i focused on those five months. >> what do you hope that young women and young men take away from the film? >> definitely for young men that they -- there is another form to reaching young women. that you don't need to use violence. we need to learn about toxic masculinity and how to learn about consent and learn about respecting women and respecting boundaries. >> these are heavy topics, especially for a 15-year-old. you feel that the young girls need to be told. >> young men and young girls. i believe it starts in the home. parents educating about consent and about safe sex and about
safety and how to protect one's self and how to fight. >> you have a screening tonight. >> yes. tonight and tomorrow night. unfortunately we're sold out. >> that is an a bad problem to have. >> it is not. we're blessed that we're sold out. i'm so excited and humbled that it is cecilia's homecoming. and it is amazing just to see everyone there. the family will be there and her friends. and i'm so excited. >> hopefully the distributor has his or her eyes on the film and it is told nationwide. >> that is the hope. >> thank you for having us. >> let's go to dave clark with the head lines we're following. >> five people in san francisco including a small child escaped their burning home this morning after flames spread from a nearby house. the fire on fulton street started at a home under construction near alamo square
park. it started around 3:00 and was contained in about 30 minutes. no one was hurt but the cause of the fire is still under investigation. well, many in san jose's willow glen neighborhood are nervous after seeing video of a suspicious man casing homes. one willow glen resident posted home surveillance video taken by a neighbor of the man taking pictures of the home security system. now some are installing security systems. this is a photo of the man taking photos of the security system. we reached out to police about the incidents but they did not want to comment. uc davis researchers want thousands of wildfire survivors to take part in an online survey about what they endured. the survey would collect information on the personal experiences, health effects and more from the devastating wildfires. the questionnaire is part of a bigger study on health and

and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned. the things we do every single day that puts ourselves in harm's way, and to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner.
