I SAID I THINK THE JUDGE IS A VERY WELL RESPECTED JUDGE. HE WROTE A VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT DECISION.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SIT DOWN AND SAY WE DON'T WANT A COUPLE MORE
YEARS OF LITIGATION. LET'S USE THE DECISION AS GUIDANCE AND WORK OUT A REASONABLE PLAN
THAT WILL SAVE TAXPAYERS HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE HAD
IS WE HAVE LITIGATED A LOT, WE HAVE TALKED A LOT, BUT I THINK PEOPLE REALLY WANT RESULTS.
THIS IS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY. LET'S GET RESULTS.
THE CITY HAS LEV ERA GE IN TERMS OF NEGOTIATING. AT THE END OF THE DAY WHAT DO YOU SEE HAPPENING
TO THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF THOSE POSSIBLY 7500 EMPLOYEES?
WE HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE TENTATIVE DECISION FOR TWO WEEKS, THIS IS THE FINAL. WE HAVE
BEEN TALKING TO LABOR. I THINK THEY REALIZE WE HAVE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY AND THE PEOPLE
WHO HAVE THIS BENEFIT, RIGHT NOW WITHOUT CHANGING ANYTHING IT'S FUNDED 3%, THAT DOESN'T GIVE
YOU MUCH. I DON'T THINK --I THINK SOME DAY THAT --YOU JUST AREN'T GOING TO GET IT. IF
WE CAN WORK OUT A PLAN THE TAXPAYERS WILL SAVE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
IT'S A PLEASUR .
ONE OF THE MOST WANTED AND BRUTAL DRUG CARTEL BOSSES WAS EXTRA EXTRADICTED FROM MEXICO.
HE LET'S START WITH TELLING US ABOUT WHO IS THIS MAN.
WELL, HE AND THREE OF HIS BROTHERS RAN ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL DRUG CARTELS IN LATIN AMERICA
IN MEXICO IN THE 90s. HE WAS CONSIDERED THE BRAIN BEHIND THIS CARTEL. WHEN HE LED IT UNTIL
HIS ARREST IN 2002 THIS CARTEL WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MOVING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DRUGS FROM
MEXICO AND COLUMBIA INTO THE UNITED STATES. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN HIS PICTURE ALONG WITH
THE PICTURE OF HIS BROTHER WHO IS NOW DEAD WERE ON POSTERS IN THE UNITED STATES, MOST
WANTED POSTERS, POSTERS THAT ALSO CONTAINED THE PHOTOGRAPH OF OSAMA BIN LADEN. THERE WAS
A TWO MILLION DOLLAR BOUNTY ON HIM.
WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS EXTRADITION?
IT DEPENDS ON WHAT HE DOES WHEN HE COMES HERE. IT'S SIGNIFICANT THAT THEY -- THAT MEXICO
EXTRADICTED SUCH A POWERFUL FIGURE. IT DIDN'T HAPPEN UNTIL 2011, A LOT OF PEOPLE BELIEVE
IT'S BECAUSE MEXICO JUST GOT THE NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL AND THAT SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE
FOR THIS BUT THE OTHER PART OF IT IS WHAT WILL HE SAY WHEN HE IS QUESTIONED BY INVESTIGATORS
HERE? HE KNOWS WHERE ALL THE BODIES BURIED, HE FLOWS WHERE THE POLICE, THE GOVERNORS,
THE GENERALS BURIED. WILL HE SPILL THE BEANS?
TELL US WHY THE AMERICANS WANT HIM? WHAT KIND OF CHARGES WILL HE FACE HERE?
HE FACES DRUGS, CONSPIRACIES, RACKETEERING, WHEN HE LED THE CARTEL THE CARTEL DIDN'T JUST
BRING IN COCAINE, IT CONTROLLED A THIRD OF THE COCAINE TRAFFIC INTO THE UNITED STATES.
IT ALSO BROUGHT IN METHAMPHETAMINE, MARIJUANA, HEROIN, AND HE ALSO --WHEN HE LED THE CARTEL,
THIS CARTEL MURDERED POLICE OFFICERS, GOVERNORS, MILITARY GENERALS, AND THOSE PEOPLE WHO GOT
IN THE WAY OR DIDN'T COOPERATE, THEY WERE MURDERED AS WELL. THEY ALSO BOUGHT OFF POLICE
OFFICERS AND MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND OTHER POLITICIANS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. >> THANK YOU.
THERE WAS GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS ABOUT SAN DIEGO'S AIR QUALITY. THE GOOD NEWS IT'S MUCH
BETTER THAN IT WAS TEN YEARS AGO, THE BAD NEWS WE STILL GOT A FAILING GRADE FROM THE
AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION. DEBORAH KELLEY IS WITH THE LUNG ASSOCIATION AND JOINS ME
NOW TO TELL US MORE ABOUT THE AIR WE ARE BREATHING. DEBORAH, TELL US ABOUT WHAT THE LUNG ASSOCIATION
WAS MEASURING WHEN IT DID THIS KIND OF SURVEY?
YES, WE REALLY LOOK AT TWO PARTS, GROUND LEVEL OZONE OR WHAT PEOPLE CALL SMOG AND THEN PARTICLE
POLLUTION. WITH GROUND LEVEL OZONE THAT -- THE WAY IT WORKS IS IT'S AN IRRITATING CHEMICAL
AND TENDS TO BURN YOUR LUNGS, WITH PARTICLE POLLUTION THEY SOMETIMES BYPASS YOUR SYSTEMS
AND GO INTO THE LUNGS. THAT'S WHY THERE ARE MORE HEART ATTACKS ON BAD AIR QUALITY DAYS.
BOTH TYPES ARE VERY DANGEROUS, THEY --BASICALLY AIR POLLUTION IN GENERAL CAUSES LUNG CANCER
AND HEART ATTACKS, SENDS PEOPLE TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND MAKE ITSELF VERY DIFFICULT TO BREATHE
FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.
WHEN IT COMES TO OZONE THIS SORT OF SMOG OR GAS THAT'S NOT GOOD FOR YOU, WHERE DID WE
RANK? TERMS OF THE OTHER CITIES?
WELL, UNFORTUNATELY WE RANKED 7th. WE HAVE THE 7th WORST AIR QUALITY WHEN THIS COMES
TO OZONE. THAT'S NOT A TOP TEN LIST YOU WANT TO MAKE.
WE ARE SEEING A LOT OF CARS ON THE FREEWAY. THIS IS I GUESS ONE OF THE REASONS WE SEE
A LOT OF THIS KIND OF GAS?
YEAH THAT'S IT. BASICALLY THE TAIL PIPING THAT'S MIXED WITH THE SUN AND THE LATE AND
THEN THE MOUNTAINS TRAP THE POLLUTION. YOU PUT ALL OF THAT TOGETHER. .
RENTAL CAR COMPANIES WILL BE SCATTERED ALL OVER THE PLACE. THOSE IMPROVEMENTS ARE IN
THE FUTURE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, LNDBERG FIELD WILL STILL JUST HAVE ONE RUNWAY. >> THAT WAS
PAT FYNN.
NOW A STORY -- .
SAN DIEGO WEEK IS MADE POSSIBLE IN PART BY A GRANT FROM THE PARKER FOUNDATION. .
BIG WHEELS TACKLE, HARD TIMES IN CALIFORNIA.
THE FOCUS OF THE MAYOR'S YEARLY STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS.
60% HIKE IN RATES WHERE ONE OR BOTH PEOPLE --.
THERE WAS TRAFFIC --. >> TACOMA --.
FROM THE STUDIOS, THIS IS SAN DIEGO WEEK.
HELLO. TONIGHT SAN DIEGO MAY BE OFF THE HOOK FOR MILLIONS IN HEALTH BENEFITS IT WOULD PAY
TO RETIRING CITY EMPLOYEES. HOW THIS COULD AFFECT THE BUDGET DEFICIT.
A DRUG CARTEL LEADER IS NOW IN THE HAND OF AUTHORITIES.
AND WHY DID SAN DIEGO GET A FAILING GRADE IN AIR QUALITY?
WHY THERE IS CONSTRUCTION AT LINDBERG AND A LIVELY DEBATE OVER A SURFING MADONNA.
AND THE STUDENT SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL START THIS WEEKEND. WE WILL GIVE YOU A PREVIEW.
WHAT YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT THE CHARGES RELEASED AGAINST SOME OF THE MEN IN THE BASKETBALL
FIXING SCANDAL?
TWO OF THE MEN ACCUSED OF FIXING GAMES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ZACH ARE ACCUSED OF TERRORIZING
A FAMILY IN A HOME INVASION. IT'S ALLEGED THE TWO MEN AND TWO OTHERS INVADED A HOME,
TIED UP THE FAMILY AND RAN OFF WITH JEWELRY AND CASH. SAN DIEGO MAYOR JERRY SANDERS IS
CALLING ON THE CITY COUNCIL TO LIFT WATER RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED ON RESIDENTS IN 2009
BECAUSE OF THE DROUGHT. RECORD RAINFALL HAS LEFT US WITH A DEEP SIERRA SNOW PACK. IN THE
COUNCIL LIFTS THE RESTRICTIONS SAN DIEGO WON'T BE FINED FOR WATERING THEIR LAWNS MORE THAN
THREE TIMES A WEEK.
THE LIMIT ON RISKY PAYDAY LOOP--LOANS MAY RISE SOON TO FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. CONSUMER
GROUPS SAY THE LARGER THE AMOUNTS THE GREATER THE RISK TO GET CAUGHT IN A DEBT TRAP. PAYDAY
LOANS ALLOW BORROWING AGAINST FUTURE PAY CHECKS.
A COURT RULED THIS WEEK THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO IS NOT OBLIGATE TO PAY HEALTH BENEFITS TO
CITY EMPLOYEE WHEN IS THEY RETIRE. IT COULD AFFECT NEARLY 7500 EMPLOYEES BUT COULD ALSO
SAVE THE CITY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. JOINING ME TO TALK ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THIS COURT
RULING JAN GOLDSMITH. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU.
IF YOU WORK FOR THE CITY AND RETIRE WHAT DO YOU GET?
IF YOU WERE HIRED BEFORE 2005 YOU HAVE RETIREE HEALTH BENEFITS THAT WOULD PAY $8,800 A YEAR
AND IT MIGHT GO UP DEPENDING ON CERTAIN FACTORS. THAT KICKS IN OF COURSE WHEN YOU RETIRE.
HOW MUCH DOES THAT COST THE CITY RIGHT NOW?
IT WAS SET UP IN 1982 AND THEY NEVER FIGURED OUT HOW TO PAY FOR IT. RIGHT NOW THE CITY
IS PAYING AT IT GOES, $57 MILLION A YEAR. IT DOESN'T PAY FOR ALL OF IT AND WE HAVEN'T
PAID OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS. IT'S BUILT UP A DEFICIT. IT'S $1.3 BILLION AND AS YEARS
GO ON THE 57 MILLION IS GOING TO GO UP MUCH, MUCH HIGHER IN ORDER TO PAY OFF THAT $1.3
BILLION. IT'S A FINANCIAL MESS.
THAT 1.3 MILLION, WHEN WE HEAR UNFUNDED LIVE THAT'S WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.
YES LIKE THE BALANCE THE MORTGAGE BUT YOU AREN'T PAYING ENOUGH TO PAY THE PREMIUM.
57 MILLION A YEAR TO SERVICE THIS KIND OF A DEBT. WHERE IS THAT COMING FROM?
FROM THE GENERAL FUND. THE SAME FUND THAT PAYS FOR POLICE, FIRE LIBRARIES AND IT SERVICES
THOSE THAT ARE RETIRED A PART OF THE PROMISE TO EMPLOYEES WHO ARE NOW --WE PUT THAT IN
ACCOUNT AND HOLD IT FOR THEM BUT IT'S NOT MUCH.
DOES THIS COURT RULING MEAN YOU SUDDENLY DON'T HAVE TO PAY THAT? , WE HAVE THAT ADDITIONAL
MONEY EVERY YEAR?
THE JUDGE RULED IT'S NOT A VESTED BENEFIT. THAT'S A BENEFIT PROTECTED UNDER THE CONSTITUTION,
RETIREMENT BENEFITS PROTECTED. WE HAVE SAID IT'S NOT A VESTED BENEFIT, JUST A TERM AND
CONDITION OF EMPLOYMENT, THE SAME AS VACATION LEAVE THAT WE CAN CHANGE AND SALARY. THE JUDGE
AGREED WITH US BUT THIS IS JUST THE TRIAL COURT. IT CAN TO APPEAL AND THIS WAS A TEST
CASE THAT WAS FILED BY SOME MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE POLICE OFFICERS
GROUP ASSOCIATION. IT DOESN'T APPLY REALLY TO THE OTHERS. THE ANSWER CAN WE JUST STOP
IT TODAY, WE COULD BUT WE WILL GET MORE LAWSUITS AND LITIGATE FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. I HAVE
SAID THE THINK THE JUDGE IS A VERY WELL RESPECTED JUDGE. HE WROTE A VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT DECISION.
THIS IS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SIT DOWN AND SAY WE DON'T WANT A COUPLE MORE YEARS
OF LITIGATION, LET'S USE THE DECISION AS GUIDANCE AND WORK OUT A REASONABLE PLAN TO SAVE TAXPAYERS
HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. WE HAVE LITIGATED A LOT, WE HAVE TALKED A LOT, BUT I THINK PEOPLE
REALLY WANT RESULTS. THIS IS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY. LET'S GO GET RESULTS.
THE CITY HAS LEV ERA GE NOW. WHAT DO YOU SEE HAPPENING TO THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF THOSE
POSSIBLY 7500 EMPLOYEES WHEN THEY RETIRE?
WE HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE TENTATIVE DECISION FOR TWO WEEKS, THIS IS THE FINAL. WE HAVE
BEEN TALKING TO LABOR AND I THINK WE HAVE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY HERE AND THEY REALIZE IT
AND THE FOLKS WHO HAVE THIS BENEFIT RIGHT NOW WITHOUT CHANGING ANYTHING, IT'S FUNDED
3%. THAT DOESN'T GIVE YOU MUCH. I DON'T THINK THAT --I THINK SOME DAY YOU JUST WON'T GET
IT. I THINK IF WE CAN WORK OUT A REASONABLE PLAN THE TAXPAYERS WILL SAVE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS
AND EMPLOYERS CAN GET SOMETHING THEY CAN RELY ON.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
IT WAS A PLEASURE.
ONE OF THE MOST WANTED AND BRUTAL DRUG CARTEL BOSSES WAS EXTRADICTED TODAY TO FACE CHARGES
IN SAN DIEGO. HE WAS CONSIDERED THE MASTERMIND OF A CARTEL IN THE 90s.
LET'S START WITH TELLING US ABOUT WHO IS THIS MAN?
WELL, HE AND THREE OF HIS BROTHERS RAN ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL DRUG CARTELS IN LATIN AMERICA
IN MEXICO, IN THE 90s. HE WAS CONSIDERED THE BRAIN BEHIND THIS CARTEL. WHEN HE LED IT UNTIL
HIS ARREST IN 2002, THIS CARTEL WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MOVING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF DRUGS FROM
MEXICO AND COLUMBIA INTO THE UNITED STATES. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN HIS PICTURE ALONG WITH
THE PICTURE OF HIS BROTHER RAMON WHO IS NOW DECEASED WERE ON POSTERS IN THE UNITED STATES,
MOST WANTED POSTERS, POSTERS THAT ALSO HAD THE PHOTOGRAPH OF OSAMA BIN LADEN. THERE WAS
A TWO MILLION DOLLAR BOUNTY ON HIS HEAD.
WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS EXTRADICTION?
IT'S SIGNIFICANT DEPENDING ON WHAT HE DOES WHEN HE COMES HERE. FIRST OF ALL IT'S SIGNIFICANT
THAT THEY --THAT MEXICO EXTRADICTED HIM. HE WAS ARRESTED IN 2002 AND THE ARREST DIDN'T
HAPPEN UNTIL NOW, A LOT BELIEVE IT'S BECAUSE OF THE NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL AND SHE MIGHT
HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. THE OTHER PART IS WHAT WILL HE SAY WHEN HE IS QUESTIONED
BY INVESTIGATORS HERE? HE KNOWS WHERE ALL THE BODIES ARE BURIED. HE KNOWS WHERE THE
POLICE OFFICERS, THE GOVERNORS, THE GENERALS ARE BURIED. WILL HE SPILL THE BEANS?
SO TELL US WHY THE AMERICANS WANT HIM. WHAT KIND OF CHARGES WILL FACE?
DRUG CHARGES, RACKETEERING, WHEN HE LED THE CARTEL THE CARTEL DIDN'T JUST BRING IN COCAINE,
IT CONTROLLED A THIRD OF THE COCAINE TRAFFIC INTO THE UNITED STATES. IT ALSO BROUGHT IN
METH, MARIJUANA, HEROIN, AND HE ALSO --WHEN HE LED THE CARTEL THIS CARTEL MURDERED POLICE
OFFICERS, GOVERNORS, MILITARY GENERALS AND THOSE PEOPLE WHO GOT IN THE WAY OR DIDN'T
COOPERATE WERE MURDERED AS WELL. THEY ALSO BOUGHT OFF POLICE OFFICERS AND MEMBERS OF
THE MILITARY AND OTHER POLITICIANS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. >> THANK YOU.
THERE WAS GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS ABOUT SAN DIEGO'S AIR QUALITY THIS WEEK. THE GOOD NEWS
IT'S MUCH BETTER THAN IT WAS TEN YEARS AGO. THE BAD NEWS WE STILL GOT A FAILING GRADE
FROM THE AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION. DEBORAH KELLEY IS WITH THE LUNG ASSOCIATION AND JOINS
ME NOW TO TELL US MORE ABOUT THE AIR WE ARE BREATHING. DEBORAH TELL US ABOUT WHAT THE
LUNG ASSOCIATION WAS MEASURING WHETHER IT DID THIS?
WE LOOK AT TWO PARTS, GROUND LEVEL OZONE OR WHAT PEOPLE NORMALLY CALL SMOG AND THEN PARTICLE
POLLUTION. WITH GROUND LEVEL OZONE THAT -- THE WAY IT WORKS IS AN IRRITATING CHEMICAL AND
IS TENDS TO BURN YOUR LUNGS JUST THE WAY THE SUN BURNS YOUR SKIN. WITH PARTICLE POLLUTION,
SOMETIMES THEY ARE SO SMALL THEY PASS THE DEFENSES, GO THROUGH THE LUNGS AND GET IN
THE BLOODSTREAM. THAT'S A REASON WHY BAD AIR QUALITY DAYS THERE ARE MORE HEART ATTACKS.
SO, BOTH OZONE AND PARTICLE ARE DANGEROUS, AIR POLLUTION IN GENERAL CAUSES LUNG CANCER
AND IS MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO BREATHE.
WHEN IT COMES TO OZONE THIS SMOG OR GAS IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU. WHERE WOULD DERANK?
WE RANKED 7th. WE HAVE THE 7th WORST AIR QUALITY WHEN IT COMES TO OZONE. THAT'S NOT A TOP TEN
LIST. WE ARE SEEING A LOT OF CARS ON THE FREEWAY. THIS IS I GUESS ONE OF THE REASONS WE SEE
THIS --A LOT OF THIS GAS. >> THAT IS IT. BASICALLY THE TAIL PIPE AND THE SUN AND HEAT AND THEN
THE MOUNTAINS TRAP IT ALL AND THEN THE PEOPLE, THE CARS, THE CLIMATE IT'S ALL A BIG AIR POLLUTION
PROBLEM.
WHERE DO WE RANK WITH THE PARTICLES?
WE RANKED 15th WORST IN THE NATION. FORTUNATELY WE --MOST OF OUR AIR POLLUTION IS REALLY COMING
FROM MOBILE SOURCES, VEHICLES, DIESEL, SHIPS IN THE PORT AND SO FORTH. WE DON'T ACTUALLY
HAVE --WE DON'T HAVE A LOT OF HEAVY INDUSTRY, THINGS LIKE THAT WILL GENERATE A LOT OF PARTICLE
POLLUTION. HAVING SAID THAT WE ARE STILL BAD, I MEAN MOST CITIES IN THE UNITED STATES DO
BETTER THAN WE DO AND WE HAVE TO DO A BETTER JOB TO PROTECT OUR CITIZENS. IN TERMS OF OZONE
I WAS LOOKING AT THE REPORT AND IT MENTIONED IT WAS THROUGH THREE DAYS WHERE SAN DIEGO
SURPASSED REALLY THE OPTIMAL AMOUNT OF OZONE. IT SOUNDS LIKE WE ARE LOOKING AT STRINGENT
REGULATIONS AND GUIDELINES. WE AREN'T AS BAD AS PERHAPS THE 7th RANKING WOULD INDICATE?
IT'S DEFINITELY, IT'S REALLY TRUE WITH THE AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION THAT WE DO SET THE
BAR VERY HIGH AND THAT'S BECAUSE OUR HEALTH IS AT RISK AND YOU KNOW THERE ARE IMMEDIATE
EFFECTS OF POLLUTION AND THEN LONG TERM EFFECTS AND IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE THE PERSON WHO LOST
A PARENT FROM A HEART ATTACK ON THAT ONE OR THREE DAYS WE HAD OZONE THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT
AND I THINK THE MESSAGE IS THAT WE REALLY DO NEED AND WILL BE ABLE TO CLEAN UP THE AIR
SO THAT NOBODY'S HEALTH IS IN DANGER.
BEFORE WE GO THOUGH WE ARE DOING MUCH BETTER THAN WE WERE TEN YEARS AGO.
YEAH, YEAH, OUR OZONE LEVELS HAVE DROPPED MORE THAN 51% OVER TEN YEARS AND PARTICLE
IS LAST.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.
THANK YOU.
AS IF AIR TRAVEL WEREN'T HAS THE ENOUGH LINDBERG IS NOW THE SCENE OF A MAJOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT.
WE LOOKED INTO WHAT IS GOING ON AND WHAT WE CAN EXPECT NOW AND WHEN IT'S COMPLETED.
PLEASE CROSS STREET WITH CAUTION.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN TO THE FIELD LATELY YOU MUST HAVE NOTICED THE CONSTRUCTION. SAN DIEGO INTERNATIONAL
AIRPORT IS IN YEAR THREE OF A FOUR YEAR ONE BILLION DOLLAR IMPROVEMENT PROJECT FOR ITS
NEWEST TERMINAL.
IT WAS STARTED IN 1975 BUT NEVER COMPLETED. ALTHOUGH WHO KNEW? WHEN IT IS DONE IN 2013
IT'LL BE HUGE. ENVIRONMENTLY FRIENDLY AS WELL. I WANTED TO FIND WHAT WE WERE GETTING FOR
ONE BILLION DOLLARS. I ASKED BOB BOLTON THE SENIOR PROGRAM MANAGER WHAT'S INCLUDED.
WE ARE ADDING ABOUT 461,000 SQUARE FOOT OF ADDITIONAL BUILDING SPACE. WE WILL INCLUDE
A DOUBLE LEVEL --DUAL LEVEL ROADWAY TO SEPARATE THE ARRIVALS FROM THE DEPARTURES, THE NEW
SECURITY CHECKPOINT WILL BE TWICE THE SIZE OF THE EXISTING ONE, GOING FROM SIX LANES
OF SECURITY SCREENING TO 12 LANES. WE ALSO WILL HAVE ABOUT 40,000 SQUARE FEET OF ADDITIONAL
FOOD AND DRINK, CONCESSION, NEWS AND GIFT SHOPS, WE WILL HAVE A NEW TICKET LOBBY, TEN
NEW GATES, WE WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO HANDLE SOME OF THE LARGER AIR CRAFT.
THAT IS NEWS. WE ARE ALL USED TO FLYING OUT ON AIR BUS 320s, NOW WE CAN BOOK ONE THE SIZE
OF A 747. WE WILL STILL EAT PEANUTS. THE TERMINAL PROJECT IS GOING FOR A CERTIFICATE FROM THE
GREEN BUILDING SYSTEM. THAT WILL MEAN THE CONSTRUCTION AND THE FINISHED BUILD RECOGNIZE
EASY ON THE ENVIRONMENT THAT MEANS RECYCLING CONSTRUCTION WASTE AS WELL AS USING RECYCLED
MATERIALS.
THE INTENT IS NOT TO LET THEM GO IN TO THE LANDFILL BUT TO REUSE THEM ON SITE OR OFF
SITE ON OTHER PROJECTS.
TERMINAL 2 WILL GENERATE SOLAR ENERGY BUT WILL TRY TO USE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE.
WE WANT TO LET THE SUNLIGHT INTO HELP OFF SET SOME OF THE LIGHTING NEEDS INSIDE BUT
NOT ALLOW THE HEAT TO BE TO EXCESSIVE.
THE NEW TERMINAL 2 WILL BE SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND THE REST OF THE FIELD, THAT'S
ANOTHER STORY FOR ANOTHER DECADE. TERMINAL 1 WILL STILL BE JAMMED TO THE RAFTERS, THERE
WILL BE NO PARKING STRUCTURE, RENTAL CAR COMPANIES WILL BE SCATTERED ALL OVER THE PLACE AND THOSE
IMPROVEMENTS ARE IN THE FUTURE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE FIELD WILL STILL HAVE JUST ONE RUNWAY.
>>
NOW A STORY THAT SOME WOULD SAY COULD ONLY HAPPEN HERE. ONE DAY LATE LAST WEEK A GROUP
OF ARTISTS POSING AS CONSTRUCTION WORKERS PUT IN A LARGE STAIN GLASSED MURAL ON THE
WALL OF AN OVERPASS OR SO THE STORY WHICH IS FAST BECOMING LEGEND GOES. HERE IS WHAT
IT LOOKS LIKE, YES IT IS THE MADONNA ON A SURF BOARD OR MORE SPECIFICALLY OUR LADY OF
GUADALUPE ON A SURF BOARD. IT'S CREATING QUITE A WAVE OF CONTROVERSY.
IT'S ART BUT I'M NOT SURE THE LINE BETWEEN THAT AND VANDALISM GETS BLURRED.
THIS IS ART I WOULD SAY. OF COURSE THEY HAVE PUT IT ON SOMEBODY ELSE'S PROPERTY BUT MAYBE
THEY CAN GET A WAIVER BECAUSE IT'S THERE AND BEAUTIFUL.
IT COULD BE CONSIDERED VANDALISM BUT OBVIOUSLY ART IN THE EYE OF THE BE HOLDER SO YOU ARE
ASKING ME THE QUESTION, TO ME IT'S ART.
AND JOINING ME NOW TO TALK ABOUT WHETHER IT'LL STAY OR GO AND WHETHER IT'S ART OR JUST GRAFITTI
IS A COUNCILMEMBER.
THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.
WHEN YOU FIRST SAW THE MURAL, WHAT DID YOU THINK?
I WAS BLOWN AWAY. IT --I THOUGHT IT WAS BEAUTIFUL, IT'S GREAT ART, OF COURSE THE CONCERN WAS
OOPS IT'S ON PUBLIC PROPERTY AND OF COURSE THEN I --I THINK THE STORY THAT YOU SHARED
HOW IT GOT THERE, OUR CITY CLERK SAW THE FOLKS IN CONSTRUCTION GARB AND ASSUMED THEY WERE
WORKERS.
FROM THE CITY --FROM A LEGAL POINT OF VIEW, WHY CAN'T THIS BE THERE? WHAT WENT WRONG?
TERMS OF INSTALLING AND PUTTING IT UP ON THIS PUBLIC SPACE?
WHAT WENT WRONG WAS THERE WAS NO PROCESS FOLLOWED, THERE WAS NO PERMISSION, WE HAVE HIRED AN
ART PERSON WHO HAS ALREADY BEEN DOWN. IT'S NOT THERE LEGALLY, AT THE SAME TIME LET'S
SAY IF THE ART WAS GOING TO STAY IT WOULD HAVE HAD TO HAVE BEEN ENGINEERED. WE WILL
FIND OUT A COUPLE THINGS, FIRST CAN IT BE REMOVED SAFELY WITHOUT DESTROYING IT? WE HAVE
ALREADY HAD AT LEAST THREE FOLKS THE COMMUNITY HAVE CALLED INTO OFFER TO PAY FOR IT TO BE
REMOVED PUT ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. IF IT WAS GOING TO STAY, IF, IS IT ENGINEERED IN A WAY
WITH STAND THE TRAINS GOING OVERHEAD AND IS THERE A PROBLEM WITH THE TILES FALLING? IN
ADDITION I AM --EVERY TIME I GO THERE THERE ARE FLOWERS AT THE BOTTOM. YOU ARE SEE THAT
FOLKS ARE COMING IN DROVES, IT'S ALL OVER THE NATION, PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT IT AND
WE ARE GETTING VISITORS LOS ANGELES, ORANGE, RIVERSIDE, GROUPS OF TOURISTS, PEOPLE SAYING
--I HAVE HAD PEOPLE COME TO ME --I WAS AT LUNCH, WHERE IS THE SURFING MADONNA. THEY
THINK IT'S UNDER THE FREEWAY BRIDGE.
IF YOU ARE --IF THEY SAY IT CAN STAY, IT'S SAFE, AREN'T YOU NOW GOING INTO ANOTHER DEBATE.
IT'S A RELIGIOUS SYMBOL?
WE ARE HOPING FOR A WIN WIN SO WE DON'T EVEN GO THERE. MY FINGERS ARE CROSSED, THE PEOPLE
WE HAVE HIRED DO CONSERVATION OF ELEMENTS ON OLD BUILDINGS, ALL KINDS OF ART. WE ARE
OPTIMISTIC THERE WILL BE A WAY TO REMOVE IT SAFELY OR WITH MINUTE TALL DANGER SO IT CAN
BE REPAIRED PUT IN SOMEWHERE ELSE.
WHERE DO YOU THINK IT'LL BE PUT?
I HAVE HAD HIGHWAY 101 TRADER; AN OFFER FROM A RESTAURANT, FROM SAINT JOHN'S CATHOLIC CHURCH.
TO BE THE TRAVELING SURFING MADONNA.
THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.
ONCE AGAIN THE PLACE IS THE THING AS THE SHAKE SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY KICKS OFF ITS EVENT. WE

PRETTY CRAZY STUFF. >> I HAVE IT. IT IS ENGENDERED. HELL AND NIGHT MUST BRING THIS BIRTH TO THE
WORLD'S LIGHT.
MY STUDENTS DO WELL IN ENGLISH ARTS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO SO MUCH SHAKESPEARE.
THEY EXPAND THEIR VOCABULARY AND THE STORIES HAVE UNIVERSAL VALUES, THERE ARE A LOT OF
