10:07 pm
year's eve will fuel more cases there will be more infections and you may not know you're infected passing along the virus , the medically vulnerable and elderly at highest risk of hospitalization were definitely recommending that people test immediately before possible entering a space where there's others gathered back at the angus house. safety is first and foremost, especially with a couple of kids who can't be vaccinated, which is why there's spending $75 a test for the 10 to 20 people they want to see to celebrate. thinking showing that we're doing it responsibly that that helps, you know, helps with my community under understanding that this is important to us, and that will impact people's behavior, maybe just lightly. andrew angus son is actually building an app right now to help understand any persons covid risk based on geography, age and vaccination status. he's been crunching a lot of data, and he's only 15 years old. the

the new increase will bring in the following year. well, our expectations are that it will generate about $120 million a year. and as of the end of november, the amount that had been collected through regional measure three was about $315 million. as you said voters did approve this, but for people who don't remember explained to them where that money is earmarked to go towards the transportation projects it includes, right. that's um it's a great question , and it's approximately three dozen different projects all around the bay area, and these funds will be used to advance some of them. biggest priorities in the region. these include improvements to highway 37 in the north bay, extending bart. from the current terminus in berryessa. through downtown san jose up to santa clara, helping
10:47 pm
to advance the extension of the caltrain corridor. from its current terminus at fourth and king. to the salesforce transit center. more new bart cars, more unique cars, expansion of the bay area, very fleet, creating a direct freeway connector. from north londono. one to the richmond san rafael bridge in marin county. uh, and dozens of others. john now, obviously, you know, well, there's a bit of a hiccup here and ongoing lawsuit from the harvard howard jarvis taxpayers association. can you give us an update on that and how that is sort of tying up funds or maybe slowing these projects is at work? well it it certainly has slowed some projects without question. so, um. suit was filed against regional measure three and senate bill 5 95. so both we,
10:48 pm
the bay area toll authority and the california state legislature were served with lawsuits. that was some years ago now. and it is still making its way through the court system. so regional measure three was upheld at the superior court level, and it was upheld at the state appeals court level. ah but the california supreme court has agreed to hear the case. we really have no idea when, um, that case will be heard. again since the first increase in 2019 $315 million has been set aside in an escrow account, goodwin says, if the supreme court of california rules against the measure, the funds will be returned to drivers. another increases coming in 2025. all right. he's going to be cold night out there. it looks cold in san francisco. right now. city temperatures going to get
10:49 pm

10:50 pm
the wind temperatures are down a few degrees, so we are looking for some cold mornings the next few mornings, those winds died down a bit tonight in santa rosa gets down to about 31 degrees 33. in antioch in about 40 and redwood city, so it's cool next couple more. it's not just tomorrow morning, but it's a kid's head off to school on friday morning as you get ready to do whatever you doing saturday morning, it's going to be cold. um sunday little change. we'll see the clouds increase and then hopefully so sprinkles or showers show up sunday night into monday. another cold storm, though another kind of northern north of northern trajectory storm. it's interesting like it seems like it's been raining all lot a lot, just the last four days or so, but the actual accumulations are manager like today, half inch quarter inch an inch in some places, right, but it seems like more than that, because it's just been, you know, a long day. it's just but it's a really cold air masses with that cold air comes not as much water as you might want to want to get with the storm. so here we are. this is tomorrow morning. this is tomorrow afternoon. there's thursday. clouds over this year

10:54 pm
and at genesys, tonight. i guess it's just never clear cut with the 49ers quarterbacking situation. we started the year this way. looks like we're going to end it two games left in the regular season. who's at quarterback. it might not be jimmy g, of course , is problematic thumb on his right hand, his throwing arm right injured in that game seems like ages ago against tennessee last thursday, actually and it's called the sprain, depending i guess who you talk to a sprained or broken bone, a torn ligament . whatever the case, it's put a big question mark as to the start against texans. on sunday at levi stadium, but one guy who thinks he's going to be at quarterback with the game starts is the quarterback himself in the end zone. yeah definitely. i
10:55 pm
think just i mean, you know, played the entire game with it, basically, so it's a it's really just about, you know, being able to grip the ball, do the things that normally do the bone. it's stable is what they're tied anything complete. they told me. drew brees had one, um, in the last few years or something, and his broke and that's why he had to get surgery. jimmy's isn't and that spot. it's stable, and that's why he doesn't need surgery right now. and we, you know, i think he's feeling a lot better today than he was a few days ago. that's why he's got a chance this week and with it being that case, hoping it only gets better with more time whether that's this week or the following week. meanwhile no question about it. the biggest story in football this year john madden the passing of a one in a million personality, the man, john madden rocked the sports world. this week. everybody connected with football in some way has been affected by his influence his humor his education to those who maybe weren't so familiar with the
