6:36 am
most they can do there is possibility that they will not be able to get in touch with someone they come back from their trip and not find your car in the parking lot in which case they will have to track down somebody in the airport to try and find out what happened. >> that would be terrible. thank you yoli. santa clara police are urging residents to lock up before you go to bed locked the doors and windows at night because of recent break-ins in nine days they have investigated six per jewelries for the people were home at the time when the burglars came in each case they entered the home through unlocked windows or doors and went through the house dealing laptops and gaming systems. police are not sure of their multiple suspects or one single banded doing this. san mateo county sales tax could go up the board of supervisors is voting to put their revenue-

6:49 am
isn't headed to sunset. that's why marina would probably be the better choice which the stop signs that they put an they are trying to discourage people from doing exactly that. but that would be a better bet at present president lee traffic is getting by. within the next hour we will see this turn into something it especially if they're there until late 30. >> in hayward nimitz freeway that has cleared up so no longer any delays at tennyson long gone. the bay bridge westbound is still light we saw a few cars backed up the cash lanes the left side that was the extent of it. the ride through san jose won a one north and no problems get from one and to buy part way up to santa clara the right out
