California Creek Fire Zero Percent Contained, Chief Firefighter Says

"The People Fighting California's wildfires include our next guest chief. Chris Donnelly is spent twenty two years as a volunteer firefighter in Huntington Lake California. Good, morning sir. Good. Morning Steve. How are you this morning I'm okay. We've reported a lot on the sheer extent of the fires. How have you been spending your days where you are? Well we we began this this fight probably on Saturday morning about six am and what we did I was get all of our people out of Huntington Lake. Huntington has about probably five hundred and fifty summer cabins in an additional hundred and ten. Condominiums, we had thousands of people at Huntington and Once I had is on the fire, very clear to me that he was going to burn into Huntington and lives were at stake. So we spent most of the time getting people out. Well, I'm glad you've been able to do that. But of course, because of course, we have been following stories of some other resort areas, vacation areas where. There for the summer there for vacation there camping have had to be evacuated emergency ways. you said you got is on the fire can you describe the landscape the way it looks to somebody who's never been there and what the fire looked like. Yeah. Honey. Lake is quite unique word seven thousand feet, and we are the reservoir for a very large electric generation facility. That's two thousand feet below us. Virtually down a steep just just a cliff. and. So when I heard a sheriff's deputies go through our area to begin evacuations about five thirty in the morning on Saturday. I called our dispatch and and and they told me where the fire was. I drove down there about fifteen to twenty minutes away. And look down into the Canyon to about a thousand feet below us and saw flames and new as soon as the morning wins started upslope of Valley. That that was going to be a threat to Huntington. So I recommended that we do a mandatory evacuation at Huntington and began that vacuum evacuation about seven thirty. Our our teams, we we knew this was coming eventually with so much deadened down and the droughts over the years. And temperatures have been drier and well, it's been hotter and humidity's dryer. So said so much deadened down is this mostly forested area that we're talking about This heavy forest. Read for in white for as much as eight feet in diameter. And Bark Beetle infestations probably killed a third of that forest and Ecorse was. Caused by not not too much water much hotter temperatures in the last ten or fifteen years. and. So we have a lot of lot of fuel out there in the forest. You you focused a lot clearly on the evacuation is everybody out safely so far as you know from your area of responsibility. Absolutely. We made several passes through our small community. And we verified that everyone was gone, and then at that point, we had lots of strike teams which are groups of fire engines each. Totaling about thirty five engines by about two PM. At which time is started releasing our personnel to get their families and get out. So right now, the the only members of our fire department, our one company officer, which we will keep their throughout the battle. But it's simply not safe to be there. Well this helps to explain number that we've been hearing the past couple of days we're told this fire is zero percent contained. Is this a circumstance and of course, it's true of all wildfires to some extent circumstance where it's abundantly clear that the massive -ness of dead vegetation that you've described that the extreme dryness means that you really this is something that is beyond human control. At this point I think that's a that's a good statement. I don't know what the future of Huntington Lake is. But at this point to it does not look good. Has. The fire actually reached the the what had been the settled area of Huntington Lake. Yes. We have loss cabins of on the western end of the lake. All communications are down into the area I am not there at this moment. So it's very difficult to get serious information but about six PM last night, all crews were pulled out to about the middle of the lake. And we don't know if they re engaged or not. You said, all crews have been pulled out to the middle of the lake. Do you mean that they went out on the water? No. Okay this is copulated on the north side of the lake, and so a mid mid way on the shore you retreat retreated to a more defensible place is what you're saying. Thank you for much much better said, yes, Gotcha Gotcha I want people to know if they don't that you are as you describe it a brother in the Catholic church maybe a layman would think of you as a monk that is another thing that you do besides volunteer firefighting for twenty two years. How does that inform the way that you think about an event like this? Well you know I'm a teacher at Saint Mary's College and I've worked with kids since probably nineteen seventy. So it for me, it's all about caring people and touching hearts and. It's it's that center of people that I worry about the most you can rebuild cabins and you can go somewhere else but it's the people. So you know just a a little. Thirty second bit for you. Yesterday morning, I drove by a cabin and made a PA announcement directly to people about you need to get out now. Yesterday I called her and told her cabin was gone. And she shared with me that are great. Grandfather that cabin in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty. And her grandmother talked about the moments out playing in the woods and collecting pine cones and. As she broke into tears. I. Thought. How many stories like this am I going to be hearing? And how hurtful this all is. Income on their summer cabins, they gotTA someplace to go, but it's the hurt and the loss and. Tens of thousands of girl and boy scouts that. Were at Huntington. And Church camps and private Anson. There's so many lives. So many memories that probably won't be there in the future. So for me, that's what it's about. It's about the people. And all the all the loss. Donnelly thanks very much for your insights. I really appreciate it and we'll continue following the news to see if you begin to reach a point where you're able to battle back. Well, we'll look for that moment to.

"State Senate earlier this week, would clamp down on fraudulent medical exemptions to require vaccines by giving state health officials more oversight over the exemption process, opponents argue the decision vaccinate should be without any involvement from the state. But Dr von Maldonado chief of infectious diseases at the Stanford University school of medicine says at this year's ongoing measles, outbreaks should serve as a reminder that long-dormant diseases have the potential to come back been victims of our own success. So the vaccinations that we have been given now for decades, have really reduce the burden of illness and death in children. I tell my colleagues who are who were around when I was we used to see children die. Every year from needles. We saw children die every week from other vaccine preventable diseases that we don't see that anymore. And so when you see young families, and even these young doctors who don't haven't seen these, it's really hard for them to understand. Why should we do this? The child is going to have a little bit of a fever may be or some soreness. They might be uncomfortable but we don't see this disease. And so, I think what we really need to do is get that message out to people that these until around. They are definitely there. The reason we're not seeing them as exactly because of the intervention, which is the vaccination, and if you took that away it would really they would research very quickly.

"On the KCBS editor's desk right now. Well, California's grape growers will be included in a deal to help US farmers affected by tariffs imposed by the Trump administration and the Chinese government KCBS, Melissa coul, Ross stakes a look at how the tariffs have affected the Golden State's wine industry. The Chinese government has imposed several rounds of tariff increases on US wine imports in recent months, while the Trump administration has imposed tariffs on Chinese goods sold here, and as a result, the price of US wine, and China is up significantly consumers in China, are reacting to that price increase, of course, by switching to alternative that don't have tariffs like New Zealand, South America, generally France, which is their favorite wine Spain. And Italy, Robert smiley is director of wine industry programs with the UC Davis graduate school of management, and he says, that China is a relatively small market for California winemakers, but it's growing fast excited in the US, and other places about the market, even though the share of US sales, of course it varies by firm. But the share of US sales is not huge because of the heavy competition over there earlier this week.

I spoke with Bill Dawson, a member of the California's salmon council, he retired from pier thirty three and they were really major shippers all over the country. They sent it out by Aaron by truck to all spot. It's also known as the Chinhook king salmon is really the better word for it. It not only is the king of all the salmon. It's a king of all the fish and when fresh California salmon is available and I can get it. That's the first fish that I choose, there's a fair bit of coho being produced in California, but the stock declined so dramatically that they've eliminated all sport fishing, and commercial fishing, these last storms are creating a new problem of their own because just as the season was getting underway storms came along, which meant the boats, just couldn't get out, all of that means the prices are fairly high now but they should start coming down firmly soon one of the things that I've completely changed us how I cook salmon.

"Eleven KCBS. Continuing our analysis of the Muller report is it is now out in the hands of the public redacted version, and we should make clear that as far as we know. This is the very same version. The members of congress have at this hour there will be apparently, according to attorney general William Bara less redacted version made available to some members of some committees. We're joined by KCBS political reporter, Doug sovereign and by Saint Mary's college professor of politics, Stephen Wolford, guys. I wanted to ask you about this area here that the talks about the cover up of the crime, right? They all thesis that it's out the crimes to get in trouble. It's the cover Muller and his team, right? Quite a bit about this. The evidence is not established the president was involved in an underlying crime. But the evidence does point to a range of other possible personal motives now. Obviously, if you're in politics, you don't want anything nasty out there. What do we take away from this portion of the report? Now look at them each drink festival. Well, a couple of things I mean, a big part. And again, the attorney general on this hard that since there was no underlying crime. There was no collusion that goes to intent. And how can you intend to obstruct Justice? If you didn't do anything wrong in the first place. Now, of course, some could ask well, why were so many so many people like the FBI into congress about their behavior in this case if there was nothing to hide, but Muller goes to intent and other places saying, although there wasn't an underlying crime at the point when the president realizes he's under investigation. He starts behaving in a way that could be construed as obstruction of Justice. And he examines that intent and even says if not for his aides not following his orders, he would have obstructed Justice people. He ordered people to do things that were obstructive, and they just didn't do them. So that whole question of intent and the underlying crime as Muller himself notes. It's a complicated and murkier issue here, then it. Might be in another case. And there's also this whole thing about so much of it being done in public view. I mean, Richard Nixon hid this stuff in the White House. Donald Trump tweets. Yeah. Well, Richard Nixon had tapes, though, the moment that just because something is in public. You does not make it legal or not necessarily obstruction? So if we look ahead to next month when presumably Muller will testify, and the attorney general testify that will take place after the gang of eight have seen the nearly unredacted report. Now, they're under strict limits as to what they can disclose having seen it in in confidence and under strict security, but it might well lead them to ask questions of Muller or of other witnesses based on what they saw in the unredacted report that will give us a fuller picture of what the investigation was doing. Joining us in studio this morning, our KCBS political reporter, Doug sovereign along. With Stephen Wolpert, a Saint. Mary's college professor of politics and constitutional expert and a reminder that you can check out the report in its entirety..

Are these valid categories? Yes. They by themselves. They are straightforward and not particularly surprising. They would be standard. And in most cases, like this, particularly the grand jury one in the the one on methods and sources of information. So it's not the categories themselves. That are particularly debatable. It's how they are interpreted that will be controversial. So professor votes who are skeptical who are listening right now and say look, this is a way of redacting information of it's not flattering for the president. Would that fall into that fourth category? Peripheral third parties potentially if a candidate number one, for example, has been referred to some of the earlier indictments, and if that's President Trump, but he hasn't been found to be culpable in any legal sense than that might be a a justification for the attorney general to simply redact information that refers to the president. There's no way of knowing if that's how he intends to play it. Ask you specifically in terms of the grand jury material does that mean, I mean, they we know Muller used grand juries extensively. Right. Does. That mean, nothing that the grand jury considered will be will be able to see it'll be black that this is probably the most where has the most discretion. There are court opinions that have different definitions of what qualifies as a matter before the grand jury. So it might be for example, if they were in interviewing someone with the suspicion of having that person testify, and then the person wasn't called to testify is that a matter before the grand jury or not the courts has not been clear about that. There's also the question of when a grand jury is over it's been completed than some of the reasons for keeping grand jury material secret go away, so depending on how transparent he really wants to be. He has quite a bit of leeway to include more information, or if he wants to be less forthcoming, he can include less, and again, it's there's no way to to know how he how he's exercise that judgment. Congress is likely to be unhappy. No matter how much is redacted or how little are going to want to see everything. So what they're asking for is that he not redact anything. But he will a professor of the reductions at this point are coming from the Trump administration slash the William bar attorney general office, what's to keep a future administration from pulling off these reductions at some point. Well, there are some Vigo restrictions such as matters before other investigating bodies such as the southern district court in New York are currently pursue still pursuing investigation that would still apply if those in this station's are ongoing and the sources and methods. No, president want's to jeopardize intelligence sources or reveal methods and grand jury proceedings if it's clearly a question something that was testimony before a grand jury that is not to be made public. Now, the other option is that a more complete report could be made available to some members of congress such as the intelligence committees, but not made public. So that's that's a sort of a halfway possible solution to this tug of war between congress and the Justice department is so Democrats in congress. If they wanted to try to subpoena the full report, but that is by no means a sure thing, right? They probably will subpoena the whole report, and if the president of orders the attorney general not to comply with the subpoena. Oh, we then have a constitutional contest between two competing provisions of the constitution. The power of the president as Jackie chief over the Justice department and the power of congress to compel evidence that it needs in order to carry out legitimate legislative functions. And the supreme court has never ruled on how to resolve the conflict between those two competing principles interesting. Professor, thanks, you break down I much. Appreciate it. That is Saint Mary's college professor of politics, Stephen.

"Zero six nine AM, seven forty KCBS. KCBS news time six twenty the future. Venezuela remains in grave doubt. Tonight opposition leader, one Widodo has declared himself the country's interim president and promptly received the backing of President Trump and other world leaders guate- says Venezuela has awoken from a nightmare while President Nicolas Maduro has decried the move as an American back coup. We're going to get a little bit more information. Now, sort it all out we're going to turn to the KCBS ring central Newsline and speak with professor Marco aponte, Merano and assistant professor of global business at Saint Mary's college of Miranda who's written extensively about Venezuela. Thank you very much for talking to us the secret. Thank you for having me. We were told today that the president Madero now appears to be calling for dialogue with how does this appear to be a softening of his tone of his position? Yes, definitely for someone to president a couple of days ago was rhetoric a very aggressive rhetoric. Tours way do and he was very surprising today to see him start talking about negotiations. So yeah, definitely. Professor so often in these power plays the military the security forces play such a key role to what degree are they factoring in here. The military has said that they are backing Madero. However, the statement was a little bit shakey was actually came a day after white though became the interim president and the way was presented. It was just a few generals and on TV announcing that they were supporting depressing and we've never seen the president and the generals together. So we know the military fragmented at the moment. Also, significant that the military hasn't gone and arrested Guido, correct? Yeah. That's that's correct. However, I think the prisoner is under a lot of pressure of by of course, the international community in the United States, and they he understands from what has been fed specially from Senator Marco Rubio who's been. Behind the whole the whole case that if something happens to way, too and the opposition leaders, then the country would escalate. The White House is has announced that Elliot Abrams who served in the Reagan, and George W Bush administration's is somewhat of a controversial Neo conservative figure that he has been named as a Trump administration special on voi- in all of this any thoughts on how that impacts any of the way this plays out in Venezuela. Well, I think it would probably impact in favor of the opposition in Venezuela. That's how I see it. I think the fact that Notre conservative is dealing with an issue that the bottom line. This issue is it's it's the same country that we've always seen with with Cuba and here and then with Russia is is is significant. So I think it's probably to make the whole thing faster. What should we look for in the coming days? I will be eventually will. Resign or stop being the president somehow the options that the president is giving him is. I mean, the the options that the United States in touch with your giving him his some kind of partner, and if he decides to leave, and you know, maybe living, Cuba, whatever professor thanks so much for making some time. I much appreciate your loaning us your expertise that again is Marco aponte Moreno at assistant professor of global business at Saint Mary's college of California he has written extensively as we mentioned about.

KCBS news time one Twenty-one Frederick. Journalists Carl Bernstein famous for breaking the Watergate scandal and the Washington Post with Bob Woodward is chiming in on media. Coverage of President Trump Bernstein says the news networks should stop carrying the White House press briefings in their entirety as he believes they become in his words propagandist exercises. He says it's still important to record the events, but not broadcast them live to discuss this further returned to the KCBS ring central Newsline stock with Dr Steven Wolpert. He's a professor of politics, Saint Mary's college in Moraga. Thanks a lot for talking to us today. Do you agree with? Mr. Bernstein's comments. Well, I think there there's always a difficulty in deciding how news worthy of presidential press conference is for the twenty four hour news cycle media. They have automatically deemed all press conferences by the president to be newsworthy. But in principle, they could decide to use their judgement about how much of a news conference is newsworthy. The same is true of presidential tweets for that matter, which is what other news media due to some extent already. So you've been filtered. I mean, what's the best way to tell the public about the president's tweets and remarks, especially when not all of it is true. Well, all modern presidents try to manage the news cycle in a favorable direction. They stress their successes, and they gloss over or distort their problems and their opponents do just the opposite trying to spin the news in an opposite direction. What unique here is that. Arguably the most adept at manipulating media coverage and the least constrained by veracity. But he's not the first president to make false statements or to criticize the media. So it's hard for the media to avoid being to some extent managed by the president. And you know, if if we record him and pick and choose rather than Aaron everything. I wonder how comfortable the public is with that. How do we decide what's going to run? What's not right there? Always Acis on which reporters decide what is news. And what is not we know that the editorial viewpoints of media outlet outlets influence, what they deem newsworthy and how they frame their stories. So what is propaganda to one outlet may not be to another. And it's also true that me get are competing with each other for audience share and most people slut news sources that reinforce their own point of view. So the question would be should if the media should decide to be more selective that they apply the same standards of newsworthiness two presidents who are more forthright and less overtly hostile to them than this president is and then you have the question of the news conference where the president got into it with the CNN reporter. I'm not sure exactly. How much news is made in that exchange that it was certainly for lack of a better word dynamic. You know, there are sparks flying. And that perhaps makes for good TV or could radio. But what's where's the value? Exactly. It's it's newsworthy in the sense that it may capture people's interest and keeps audience riveted because it's dramatic, and there's a lot of intensity and emotional drama, but whether it actually amounts to anything of importance in terms of public policy or the public interest. I think there's very little there. Yeah. Right. The real housewives of Orange County as dramatic. But that doesn't mean we're going to run it all day. We'll thank you very much for talking to us. We appreciate it. That's Dr Steven Saint Mary's college in Moraga..

"Six nine and AM seven forty KCBS KCBS news time, twelve twenty as we've been reporting the fate of deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein is still up in the air after several news outlets reported that he expected to be fired this morning and moved out stress and Stein who oversees the special counsel probe into Russian interference would be widely seen as an attempt by the president to put an end to the investigation for the latest return to the KCBS ring central Newsline, speak with Steven Wilbert PHD, professor of politics set Saint Mary's college. Thanks a lot for talking to us today. So what happened today, and what do we know about the meeting on Thursday? Well under ordinary circumstances. You would expect the president to fire a senior official who either considered taping him without his knowledge or contemplated having found unfit for office. So Rosenstein has legitimately engaged in what would be considered firing offenses. However, this is not ordinary circumstances. Because the president has effectively gone to war against his own Justice department, primarily over the Russia probe. So it now looks as though on Thursday. Yeah. He plans to meet with Rosenstein. And the question is whether he will be fired or whether he will resign, which has enormous consequences for what happens next in the Muller investigation to possible. The president just wants his own guy. Noel fan Cisco to be in charge of the Muller prob-. Yeah. Well, there's two ways of looking at it. One is the critics of the Muller investigation say that Rosenstein is biased against the president. And the inquiry should be shut down because it was irreversible tainted by improper actions early in the inquiry, then on the other hand because Muller has tightened his circle around Trump and his allies in recent weeks. Critics will see removing Rosenstein is further evidence of obstruction of Justice. And whether he can appoint anyone he wishes or whether he has to follow the line of succession in the Justice department depends upon whether Rosenstein resigns or is fired. So there's a lot riding on that. Do you think this is possibly red herring to distract from the new Cavanaugh allegations that came out over the weekend? No, I think it's the worst possible timing because if he does this the same day that the Senate committee is scheduled to hear the accusations of sexual assault. It's gonna make things that much more. Controversial. So Thursday is going to be quite a day the way things look now. So if he's edging toward getting shutting down the Muller prob-. I mean at that point. It's not clear, if the Democrats have any resource recourse, and so it would be up to us. Well, there is there could be court challenges to his decision to do that. If it's case can be made that it's obstruction of Justice so McCabe Roberts. Former deputy attorney general is viewed as someone who has to be protected to maintain the integrity of law enforcement and the rule of law. So there will be there will be challenges as he tries to shut it down and his allies in the Senate have won him against doing that. Because it makes them look more guilty. So there will be a high price to pay one way or the other. If he does try to shut it down. All right. Thanks for talking to us. At Stephen Wilbert, professor of politics at Saint Mary's college.
