8:08 am
pharmacies that are inside targets. they're going to start distributing free and 95 masks. all you got to do is walk in. you're limited to 3, 3 per customer while supplies last and all of the stores are they say they're going to have signs right out front. so you'll know, you know, do you have the mask there? because don't forget, walgreens are starting to it tomorrow. it's all part of this federal retail, a pharmacy program. the masks are provided by the federal government, which is why i know like walgreens said they start tomorrow, but it depends on the supply. did they get the supply? so same kind of thing here. but just knowing that you can go buy a cvs and walgreens and pick up those mass. the n 95, they say are the best for preventing covid 8, 0, 8, is the time in our other big story. of course, is the forty-niners get ready to face the rams in the nfc championship game on sunday and resident expert on all things sports here on the morning shows kron four's will tran all with everything on the matchup. the fans, the outlook, the odds i will.
8:09 am
>> i can't wait for the game to start to feel like bill murray's groundhog day for me and the rest of the bay area. let's get going if i'm here any longer darria i will be furniture just like the helmet behind me. that's how long i've been here all week. but let's face it is the biggest sports story in the bay area. no offense to steph curry and klay thompson's return. football is king and the prize is right in front of the forty-niners. >> they just have to beat the rams and that's not a problem. the last 6 times they will have full contact drills again in a few hours from now. and that is important because they have to put in wrinkles. forget about all that coach speak, daria, when you know an opponent so well, you've got to mix it up, right? so don't be surprise to me. and trey lance takes the field. that's just my guess. you have to throw in the wrinkles. speaking of wrinkles, trent williams is not practicing. so that's iffy. but coach kyle shanahan says the offensive lineman should take the field
8:10 am
on sunday and he basically is the anchor to everything he blocks jimmy g. he's part of ground and pound. so that's very important. more than likely this game will come down to just a few points that we have arguably the most kicker in all of the nfl. you can say that he's good as gold. >> you know, i've had a lot of very close games with these guys. we've had some lopsided games on both sides of the other day. it's literally about playing our brand of football do you want to see them in the playoff? sure. like there's a lot of great teams. obviously, nancy, and i'm not shocked that they're in the nfc championship by any means. and we're familiar with them. they're familiar with us to be a great game. where was the gun right at the right time? and that's what? >> that's what the whole. that's what the season's about what that football is about. as you've got to make sure your you're playing at your best, your best is and so we're going to everybody's best come sunday.
8:11 am
>> when he says everybody duryea is not just talking about the forty-niners, their staff, the training facility, the players. he's talking about the fans as well. and it looks like. the rands they, you know. poked at the bear is in a sour the bee's nest because when it was found out that that they were trying to keep the tickets away from the niners, they are coming out full force early guess is the early numbers looks like 65% of so fy stadium will be filled with forty-niners fans wearing that iconic red color right behind me. so it will feel like a road game for matthew stafford. i was just asking richard stutzman this, our producer for those who are home, he's the maestro behind the camera way you drive down there or fly because it's so there or fly because it's so close and the ticke so expensive just to save money. i probably if i had tickets would probably drive down there. and richer. thanks. a lot of people will be flying which yeah, rich, he's in my right now. richard richard, without you he's not
8:12 am
going to >> he's been watching the count because we'll go to bed so early. >> just like you will. you can watch on the couch. are as counts all the way. not just for days. no lines at the bathroom. you know, one man waved because i'm calling it. >> niners will win on sunday on the road to the super bowl up. wow. your call it. i love it, ok? well. >> we see what happens on with i i i feel and i it's done. >> dot, move on. all right. we'll see who was hit that pitch it to right. we got this still ahead on the kron 4 morning news governor newsom's latest announcement. he spending 10 billion dollars wants to on electric vehicles. >> and we'll tell you why and what it means for you. if you want to drive one and a jewelry store owner fights back, pulls a gun on fees. that right, a smash-and-grab. we'll tell you what happened.

15 right now. and firefighters are getting a handle on the wildfire that's burning in picturesque big sur. >> this wildfire is now 60% contained. it is down to 700 acres burned. investigators say that was triggered by a prescribed burn was intended to clear up dry brush. but back fire friday night because the winds suddenly got gusty and it got out of control and now they are. they're getting it under control to get a
8:16 am
handle on. it is just such a beautiful area. it's sad to see it charred. but that's what can happen, it's definitely weird to see it in january for sure. but >> just a reminder that it really can happen any time of year, even after a wet december. fortunately for us, it's a calmer forecast ahead of us. unfortunately, it's not a wetter one. we're still going to remain dry into the start of february. looking out there at the golden gate bridge. it's beautiful. but this dry weather isn't moving us in the right direction. we're also not falling back into the wrong direction just yet the latest drought monitor still showing that we're in the grips of severe drought, which is way better than what you saw just a second ago, which was that exceptional drought for much of the bay area to start the season. so progress has been made, but much more progress needs to be made. so we're definitely hoping that february late february anyways, into march and april, really turn things around for us. in the meantime, it's the dry skies. again. today is going to be one of her son easton, most mild days of the forecast. now tomorrow, we're going to see partly cloudy skies, pushing

8:18 am
cloudy saturday, sunday and monday will continue to be that way. monday, you may see a drop of water, too, but that's all you're going to get. this is still a dry forecast tuesday into wednesday or first days of the new month remaining dry. just a little cooler reyna. tom, thanks for that. all right. we're tracking your commute and we do have an accident. this is right there in so. >> 5, 80 westbound at 80 west in oakland. and we're not seeing much of a delay as a result of that accident. but we're going continue keeping a close eye on things there to make sure traffic does not start to back up. we'll tell you about that. what you do reach the maze. you're heading into the city. last time we checked in were at about 17 minutes. now we're back down to 13. you can see they've turned the metering lights off on the bridge. the traffic is moving along pretty nicely heading across towards the peninsula. you're at about 13 minutes for your drive. there. let's get a look at 5, 80 88. you're traveling crockett down towards the maze. about a 25 minute drive for you. we had an earlier accident in san pablo that has been cleared

8:21 am
antidepressants. then they're faced with the hard work of delving deep into their trauma. but the psychedelics paired with the right environment provide a clear path to recovery. looks a lot like a really comfortable living room, but it's a very safe space. it's a very comfortable space. and >> the participant is attended by 2 very well trained therapists the entire time that they're in there. it's super fun to watch, actually, because you wouldn't think it would be >> that compelling. and it really is. >> in her recent study, doctor mitchell said about 63% of 100 patients no longer met the criteria for ptsd after their sessions were complete. others had diminished symptoms or disability from depression and no evidence of addiction was found which the fda is tracking. >> governor newsome was at ford's silicon valley innovation center highlighting part of this climate change related budget. the governor wants the state to spend 10 billion dollars over the next 5 years to invest in electric vehicles, including

8:32 am
and other blue engine started. the recall effort. >> so the schools are open, right? so i mean, the the ultimately and that's what you want. it then was and go for with the recall. >> so there are a couple reasons. the one big one is learning loss of these board members don't believe learning loss happened and if they don't play that happened, they you know, they haven't measured it and they haven't come up with a plan to address it. >> and, you know, it is for every community from black. it is that, you know, patrons, every off that, you know what to think of it talking about this that you guys have not focused on academics for a kid's francisco school board. president gabriela lopez and 2 former vp follow good. really good. and alison collins r the commission is being recalled. >> this is allison collins, first television interview says the recall begin make your best case. >> why you should retain your seat on the san francisco board of education. >> i was elected. really help the district. hold its
8:33 am
promise. 2 families specifically around ensuring that each and every student has access to a safe school. and that's not just some kids, but that's all kids. in addition, yes, on recall advocates say that san francisco schools are in a crisis that covers equity budget and leadership. you need to get confidence. debate is in the community that we have good leadership. >> on the school district that can actually run things about focus on education. otherwise you're not going to get those back. and, you know, can you to see the spinal to what's, you know, more and more cuts as more and more families need the district. >> those against the recall are concerned that there may be other motives if you don't like the policy choice, you vote for a different candidate. but if we're going to disrupt and up and our whole electoral our whole process democratic process in san francisco, any time people with wealth and influence, you know, political influence have the ability to do so. we're

putting our city at risk, the san francisco special municipal election, which includes the school board recall, will take place on february. 15th 2022. >> has it made you kron 4 news? >> in san francisco, less than 10 days since a new lincoln center opened in the tenderloin, there are reports of open drug use at the center. the linkage center is supposed to be a place where people get help recovering and they have wrap around services to support them. it's part of the mayor's tenderloin emergency initiative. mayor breed is doesn't confirm or deny the allegations, but she says that they cannot control who uses drugs at such a location. some attic experts are now questioning how the center is supposed to help people recover. >> to get somebody in recovery, you have to help find the right environment for them too. except that help. and how are they going to do that? if the guy sitting next to smoking met.
8:35 am
>> what is the plan here? i is if they end up wanting to set up safe supervised drug consumption site, this is not the way to do. he would mix it with the center. we're trying to get people the treatment that should be somewhere else. that should be, you know, through. >> meantime, some addiction experts say that the use of drugs is a reality when on the road to recovery. others, however, also question the legality of the site. if illegal illicit drug use is taking place. it's a 35. and in the south bay, one lawsuit is all been filed and more against san jose after city leaders passed a controversial gun control law. the new law would require gun owners to have gun liability insurance and pay a fee. it's the first gun reform law of its kind in the country that aims to promote safer gun ownership. the mayor says officers are not going to take guns away and this is a reason to believe that the gun has been used for violence, but
8:36 am
opponents, believe that the law is a violation of their constitutional right to bear arms. >> the city of san jose is forcing citizens exercising a constitutional right to bear arms, particularly in their homes. they're taxing that and giving the tax money to nonprofits to then use it for speech that we all know is going to be used to criticize that very constitutional right. i'm confident that we're going to emerge from this litigation. >> with an survives constitutional scrutiny and we'll be able to implement this. >> it is possible that more lawsuits are going to be filed. they say that's likely the dew ordinance, by the way, doesn't specify how much the insurance is going to cost. but the annual fees collected from the ordinance would be used by non-profit organizations working to reduce gun violence. >> this morning, we're hearing from the jewelry store owner who fought back and pulled a gun.

8:38 am
three-part plan, including bolstering law enforcement response. it's 8.37 right now. and still ahead, health care coverage cuts to a new all timers drug. >> our big concern for some bay area families that say it's saving their lives will have that and more. when we come back in a force for more on the forty-niners and jimmy g and the gang get ready to face. the rams were here from coach shanahan.

8:46 am
course, 11 on any day. but especially when the sun shining on it. now, unfortunately, we had a little bit too much sunshine. it's kind of been an on and off winter. october was great. the november drive out december was great. how january's been super dry for us, too. and it does look like we're going to stay dry into that first week of february, we have an inch any further back into drought. this past week. your new drought monitor is showing that we're exactly the same as last week still in the grips of severe drought, it's kind of a halfway there moment. we made some progress. we've got a lot more work to do, though. so keeping those fingers crossed that late february gets us back into gear could certainly use some more rain and snow, of course, now skies today are crystal clear and dry today is going to be a pairing of some of her most mild temperatures and some of her clearest of sky. so do enjoy a tomorrow is still going to be just as mild, but partly cloudy conditions can be expected. those partly cloudy skies will stay around into saturday sunday and monday of next week. so it's just not going to be quite as blue as the as today is going
8:47 am
to be still going to be rather bright, though, not a gloomy day by any means into tomorrow. high pressure, ridge responsible for all of it. sitting with us keeping the west coast, mild and dry all the rest of the country sees actual winter weather. we're looking at some windy spots up in the north bay mountains today, but not exceptionally so. certainly nothing like the last weekend was now today's daytime highs will be solidly back into the 60's low 60's for san francisco and low to mid 60's along the coastline. temperatures for bayshore areas will also be low to mid 60's and our warmest spots yet again being the south bay with milpitas san jose campbell and santa clara flirting with the 70's late january day at 67, much the same for the east bay similar to yesterday with low to mid 60's for you and for the north bay. it will be that same range until you head to the coastline. that's where you'll find a couple 50's. now, as i mentioned tomorrow, we will see a few passing clouds, bright skies and they're just not as crystal clear as today. monday, you may see a drop of water, too,
8:48 am
but that really is it. this is not a rainy forecast tuesday into wednesday, clear skies and cooler daytime highs to start the new month. >> reyna, john, thanks for that. all right. so we're starting in the south bay where we are seeing an accident. this is a long 85 northbound. it's right near camden avenue. so you are starting to see a slight delays. you're traveling along. 85. that's a good alternate would be 87 if you're trying to get around that delay, but you can still maneuver through it just is going a little slower long, 85 because of that accident heading into the city right so that fremont street exit about 11 minutes for your drive time there. a lot of improvement from the last hour. we are at about 17 minutes. san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula. 13 minutes at this hour. highway for improving as well. last time we checked in, we were at about a 30 minute drive. now. look at the 17 minutes, one, 16 concord at 2.42, if you're traveling there, if you're taking highway 24 from walnut
8:49 am
creek to 5.80, it will take you a little under 15 minutes to make that drive darya back to you. thanks. a lot of rain. a 48. let's talk football. the forty-niners all ready to face the rams in the game on sunday. we're just >> not there yet. we're getting updates from the players and coaches. in the meantime, on both sides in crown for sports. director jason dumas says more. >> the niners were on the practice field for the first time this week as they implement their game plan for sunday left tackle. trent williams did not practice his status remains in question. but kyle shanahan is feeling optimistic that he will play good thing for the niners, even if he can't play, they know they can still win without him. they did. so back in week, 17 against the rams. coincidentally enough. >> besides this group is as confident as ever that 3 of 5 team is a distant memory and you know what they say teams usually take on the personality of its leader and
8:50 am
no matter what you think of his play on the field. jimmy garoppolo is one of this team's leaders, kyle shanahan as coach them hard. and he says jimmy takes it all in stride and despite knowing his replacement is in the same building, which can be awkward, his confidence and added to has never think just knowing knowing yourself and knowing where you are plays a big part of that. >> because, you know, if you get lost in and start believe in some of those things that could take you down the wrong road. so. think it's just about knowing yourself as a player as a person. as long as these guys in this locker room, i have faith in me and believed and that's all i really care about. jimmy's fun to coach. he's never he knows the answer before i get to i mean, he knows the nation about that ball. go. >> he had utterly, but he people are in the pocket and he try to get there early, which he knows that that he was just used to aggressive on that play. but that's something you work with. all those guys on. it's going to happen at times with a quarterback. but the ones that
8:51 am
are responsible for it and sometimes the best plays a sack. jimmy have always believe in. you bro. >> all right. now a lot has been made of this niners rams rivalry in the recent dominance by san francisco. we know some of the numbers, six-game winning streak about a won both matchups this season. and kyle shanahan. he is 7 in 3 against sean its pretty lopsided. if you ask me so much so that kit this. it prompted a reporter today asked sean mcvay, it's kyle shanahan in your head. >> what i what i do have is respect for these guys. they've done a great job. you know, you look at you got to play well and that 3 and a half hour window that were a lot of you look at the last time that we play and didn't finish the game. but but this is a really good football team. we have a lot of respect for him. you know, we're competing and prepared to the best of our ability to go out and see if we can advance. but this is a really good team 1000. excellent coach. they
8:52 am
got great players, great coaches, good schemes. and so so either in the nfc championship, they have a tough team. >> you know, they have very physical a physical team. everybody out there tyne and fullback. you know, quarterback even receiver seen. i just tough physical team. you know, we've i want to go out there to try to get my best every time year. we had our chances. last time we played them to win the game. whether it was a, you know, foreman situation for us on offense. but 2 minute situation on defense and we still have a shot in overtime as well. so, you know, it's a really good football team is to really good football teams going after each you know, seeing each other twice this year, going to see each other for a 3rd time. i'm not a bunch of secrets. just who can step up to the plate making plays and we need to make them. >> 52 is right now and i just checked on stubhub, actually, richard, my producer did. as far as the tickets go on, the fans and everything best-selling football playoff game instead history at this point. so everybody is buying up these tickets like they're
