NOW, THE STATE OF THE STOCKTON UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT IS HAPPENING JUST ONE WEEK AFTER WE LEARNED CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAS LISTED STOCKTON UNIFIED AS HIGH RISK FOLLOWING A STATE AUDIT REVEALED THE MISHANDLING OF DISTRICT FUNDS OVER A SEVERAL YEAR TIME PERIOD. THE DISTRICT PUT THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION PUT THE DISTRICT ON THAT HIGH RISK LIST TO INCREASE OVERSIGHT AND TO HELP IT COMPLY WITH STATE AND FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS. NOW, ONE OF THE ISSUES RAISED BY THAT AUDIT INVOLVED THE USE OF FEDERAL FUNDS DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC. IT’S UNCLEAR AT THIS POINT, HOWEVER, IF THE SUPERINTENDENT WHO TOOK ON HER ROLE IN JULY WILL ACTUALLY DISCUSS THAT HIGH RISK DISTINCTION. THE DISTRICT ONLY SAYING IN A NEWS RELEASE THAT SHE WILL HIGHLIGHT ONE OF THE CAREER TECHNICAL EDUCATION CLASSES THAT IS HAPPENING IN THE DISTRICT. WOMEN IN CONSTRUCTION.

ALL RIGHT, MELANIE, THANK YOU. WELL, THIS MORNING’S PRESENTATION, BY THE WAY, BY INVITATION ONLY, BUT IT WILL BE STREAMED ONLINE FOR PARENTS. THAT BEGINS AT 9:30 A.M. NOW LET’S GO TO THE VERY LATEST ON THE WAR IN ISRAEL. AND WE ARE GETTING SOME NEW IMAGES THIS MORNING OF THE3 OVERNIGHT BLASTS THAT HAPPENED AT A HOSPITAL IN NORTHERN GAZA. AS MANY AS 300 PEOPLE HAVE DIED. BOTH ISRAEL AND HAMAS ARE DENYING RESPONSIBILITY. I-80. PALESTINIAN HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE INJURED. MANY OF THOSE KILLED WERE WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO WERE USING THE HOSPITAL AS A SHELTER. HAMAS HAS BLAMED THE EXPLOSION ON AN ISRAELI AIRSTRIKE. ISRAEL DENIES THE ATTACK, SAYING A ROGUE ROCKET FIRED BY HAMAS HIT THE HOSPITAL. NOW, THIS MORNING, MORE ISRAELI TROOPS ARE STATIONED NEAR THE BORDER. ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCES SAY THAT THEY ARE PREPARING TO EXPAND THE AERIAL ATTACK. SO FAR, NO LARGE SCALE GROUND OFFENSIVE INTO GAZA IS ANNOUNCED. ISRAEL’S MILITARY IS TELLING CIVILIANS IN GAZA CITY AND OTHER PARTS OF NORTHERN GAZA TO GO SOUTH. NOW, EARLIER THIS MORNING, PRESIDENT BIDEN DID ARRIVE IN ISRAEL IN A SHOW OF SOLIDARITY. HE WILL NOT BE MEETING WITH ARAB LEADERS WHO SUDDENLY CALLED OFF A SUMMIT FOLLOWING THE BOMBING OF THE HOSPITAL. KCRA 3 KCRA 3’S AMY LU IS IN WASHINGTON. NEWS OUR NEWSROOM THIS MORNING EXPLAINING WHAT ALL OF THIS MEANS IN TERMS OF THE WAR GOING FORWARD. WELL, BIDEN’S CANCELED TRIP TO JORDAN IS A MISSED OPPORTUNITY TO MEET FACE TO FACE WITH ARAB LEADERS AND KEEP THE WAR FROM SPREADING. HE ARRIVED IN ISRAEL EARLIER THIS MORNING WHERE THE PRIME MINISTER AND PRESIDENT GREETED HIM. BIDEN IS MEETING WITH THEM TO DISCUSS SECURITY IN THE REGION AS ISRAEL PREPARES FOR A POTENTIAL GROUND INVASION OF GAZA IN RESPONSE TO HAMAS ATTACKS. AS BIDEN LEFT WASHINGTON LAST NIGHT, ARAB LEADERS CALLED OFF A SUMMIT IN JORDAN AFTER A HOSPITAL BOMBING IN GAZA KILLED HUNDREDS. ISRAEL AND HAMAS EACH BLAMED THE OTHER SIDE FOR THE ATTACK AHEAD OF A MEETING WITH ISRAEL’S PRIME MINISTER. BIDEN SAYS HE SIDES WITH ISRAEL’S INITIAL ASSESSMENT OF THE BOMBING THAT A PALESTINIAN MILITANT GROUP IS RESPONSIBLE AND THAT THE US WILL SEND ADDITIONAL MILITARY SUPPORT TO ISRAEL. BUT HE REITERATED THAT ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS ARE SUFFERING AT THE HANDS OF HAMAS. AS AMERICANS ARE GRIEVING WITH YOU, THEY REALLY ARE. AND AMERICANS ARE WORRIED. THE AMERICANS ARE WORRIED BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THERE’S A THIS IS NOT AN EASY FIELD TO NAVIGATE. IN A STATEMENT, PRESIDENT BIDEN SAID HE WAS OUTRAGED BY THE HOSPITAL BOMBING AND SAID THAT INNOCENT CIVILIAN LIFE SHOULD BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS. HE’S DIRECTING HIS NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM TO FIGURE OUT WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED. IN WASHINGTON, I’M AMY LU KCRA 3 NEWS JUST ANNOUNCED MOMENTS AGO, THE US HAS PLACED SANCTIONS AGAINST A GROUP OF TEN HAMAS MEMBERS AND ITS FINANCIAL NETWORK. TREASURY SECRETARY JANET YELLEN SAYS THE US IS TAKING A DECISIVE ACTION TO TARGET HAMAS FINANCIERS AND FACILITATORS. WHILE PRESIDENT BIDEN IS BEGINNING HIS VISIT IN ISRAEL TODAY, HE’S ALSO CONSIDERING A $100 BILLION FUNDING REQUEST. THE MASSIVE SUPPLEMENTAL REQUEST WOULD INCLUDE DEFENSE AID FOR ISRAEL, UKRAINE AND TAIWAN AND WOULD BE FOR A FULL YEAR OF FUNDING US SENATE LEADERS EXPECT THAT BIDEN WILL SEND THE REQUEST BY THE END OF THE WEEK. BACK HERE, CLOSER TO HOME, THE JEWISH COMMUNITY IN DAVIS CAME TOGETHER TO PRAY FOR ISRAEL. DOZENS OF PEOPLE GATHERED AT CENTRAL PARK TO SING AND PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS OF HAMAS TERROR ATTACK ON ISRAEL. SOME PEOPLE KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING IN ISRAEL, OR MAYBE THEY HAVE LIVED THERE THEMSELVES. ORGANIZERS SAY THAT THEY FELT THEY NEEDED TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER FOR HEALING. AND YES, LEVINE WE NEEDED TO COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY TO SHOW OUR SUPPORT FOR ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE WE FEEL, AS RABBI SIMON SAID IN HIS REMARKS, WE FEEL ALONE. WE FEEL LIKE THERE ISN’T MORNING FOR THE DEATHS OF JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL RIGHT NOW ARE THE OPERAS OF BIRDSONG. DAVIS POLICE WERE OUT ON PATROL DURING THE VIGIL BECAUSE OF HEIGHTENED TENSION OVER THE WAR, WHILE THE CITY OF SACRAMENTO PUSHING BACK AGAINST A LAWSUIT CLAIMING IT HAS CREATED A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS BY NOT DOING ENOUGH ABOUT HOMELESSNESS. THERE IS NEW LEGAL MOTION THAT’S TARGETING THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY FOR EXCEEDING HIS AUTHORITIES IN SUING THE CITY. KCRA 3’S MIKE TESELLE LIVE OUTSIDE SACRAMENTO CITY HALL NOW WITH THE STRONG WORDS OF CRITICISM. YEAH, AND GOOD MORNING. AND WE’RE RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM CITY HALL. SO JUST TAKE A LOOK OVER MY SHOULDER ALONG WITH ME AND ANY GIVEN MORNING OR OVERNIGHT HOURS, THIS A COMMON SCENE. TENT ENCAMPMENTS ALONG CITY SIDEWALKS. AND LAST MONTH, THE SACRAMENTO COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY FILED A CITY LAWSUIT OR A CIVIL LAWSUIT CLAIMING THAT THE CITY LEADERS WERE NOT DOING ENOUGH TO ADDRESS HOMELESSNESS AND ALSO CREATING AND ENABLING A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS. WHAT IS NEW IS THAT THE CITY IS NOW RESPONDING TO THAT LAWSUIT, SAYING THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY FAR EXCEEDED HIS AUTHORITY TO SUE THE CITY AND THAT THE CITY IS IMMUNE FROM SUCH CLAIMS THAT HE’S MAKING IN FILING A MOTION, THE CITY CALLED THE DA CIVIL LAWSUIT, QUOTE, AS SURPRISING AS IT IS NOVEL, ADDING, BUT THOSE ARE NOT ADMIRABLE QUALITIES WHEN THEY LEAD TO A WASTE OF GOVERNMENT AND JUDICIAL RESOURCES. THE FILING GOES ON TO SAY, THE DA’S ACTIONS ARE MISGUIDED, VAGUE AND AMBIGUOUS. SO BACK OUT HERE LIVE WHAT THE CITY IS ASKING IN THIS NEW MOTION IS FOR A COURT TO RULE THAT THE CIVIL LAWSUIT FILED BY THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS INVALID AND THEREFORE SHOULD ESSENTIALLY BE THROWN OUT. OUT. A RULING, THOUGH NOT EXPECTED FROM THE COURT UNTIL JANUARY OF NEXT YEAR AT THE EARLIEST. LIVE OUTSIDE CITY HALL, MIKE TESELLE, KCRA THREE NEWS. MIKE, THANK YOU. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS EXPECTED TO FILE HIS RESPONSE TO THIS MOTION IN COURT. WEST SAC RAMENTO LEADERS HOPING TO GAIN SOME NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THE HOMELESSNESS PROBLEM BY GETTING SOME HELP FROM OUT OF STATE. LAST NIGHT THEY HELD A ROUNDTABLE WITH THE FORMER MAYOR OF HOUSTON OVER THE PAST DECADE, THE HOMELESS POPULATION IN HOUSTON FELL BY MORE THAN 60%. FORMER MAYOR ANNISE PARKER SAYS THE FIRST THING SHE DID WAS TO MAKE SURE SERVICE PROVIDERS AND NONPROFITS WORK TOGETHER. SHE ALSO CRACKED DOWN ON FUNDING. ORGANIZATIONS WERE ONLY ALLOWED TO GET MONEY TO ADDRESS A SPECIFIC PART OF THE PROBLEM. SHE SAYS THE PROBLEM ESSENTIALLY BOILS DOWN TO HOUSING. ANY CITY IN AMERICA CAN MAKE A MORE EFFICIENT SYSTEM OF MANAGING HOMELESSNESS. BUT ULTIMATELY YOU’RE NOT SOLVING THE PROBLEM UNLESS YOU ARE BUILDING MORE HOUSING, EITHER ASPIRATIONAL HOUSING OR AFFORDABLE HOUSING OR HOUSING WITH PERMANENT WRAPAROUND SOCIAL SERVICES. SOME REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS AT THE ROUNDTABLE SAY THEY HAVE PRESENTED COST EFFECTIVE PLANS TO THE CITY AND COUNTY AND ARE HOPING FOR THE BEST. WELL, PARENTS WITHIN A SMALL EL DORADO COUNTY COMMUNITY ARE IN SHOCK THIS MORNING AFTER AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL WAS ARRESTED. HE IS SUSPECTED OF SHARING EXPLICIT CONTENT AND MAKING INAPPROPRIATE CONTACT WITH MINORS ONLINE. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE SAYS THIS MAN, 37 YEAR OLD BOYD HALLER, WAS ARRESTED OUTSIDE OF HIS POLLOCK PINES HOME YESTERDAY MORNING. OFFICIALS SAY HALLER IS THE PRINCIPAL AT PIONEER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN THE COMMUNITY OF SOMERSET. HALLER HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH FOUR COUNTS OF SENDING HARMFUL MATTER TO A MINOR AND ONE COUNT OF CONTACTING OR COMMUNICATING WITH A MINOR FOR THE PURPOSE OF ENGAGING IN LEWD BEHAVIOR. PARENTS WE SPOKE WITH SAY THEY NEVER EXPECTED TO HEAR SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN THEIR TOWN. IT’S HONESTLY, IT’S SHOCKING BECAUSE IT’S SUCH A LITTLE LITTLE TINY SCHOOL. WE LIVE IN A LITTLE TOWN AND, YOU KNOW, A WORD GOES FAR AWAY, A LONG WAYS OUT HERE. ACCORDING TO THE EL DORADO COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, ALL OF HALLER’S CHARGES ARE FELONIES. THE DA’S OFFICE SAYS HE WILL BE IN COURT FOR HIS ARRAIGNMENT TOMORROW. WELL, THE FAMILY OF A MISSING 15 YEAR OLD FROM SACRAMENTO IS PLEADING FOR SOME HELP. POLICE SAY THAT ROBINSON WAS LAST SEEN SATURDAY MORNING ON IVY STREET IN DEL PASO HEIGHTS. IT’S NEAR GRANT UNION HIGH SCHOOL. IT’S JUST OFF OF MARYSVILLE BOULEVARD AT ROANOKE AVENUE. HERE IS ANOTHER PHOTO NOW OF THE GIRL. POLICE SAY THAT SHE WAS LAST SEEN WEARING A DARK GRAY CROP, TOP BLUE JEANS AND GRAY NEW BALANCE SHOES. IF YOU S
