    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2423H] March 29, 2013 Guest Host: Thuy Vu.
    BROKEN BOLTS ON BAY BRIDGE - The new eastern span of the Bay Bridge will undergo repairs for more than thirty broken bolts. Caltrans says the span is still safe and the setback won't stall the scheduled Labor Day weekend opening. Also, the Golden Gate Bridge makes national news this week as the first bridge in California and the third in the country to have all electronic tolling.
    STOCKTON BANKRUPTCY ON TRIAL - Wall Street creditors seeking to block the City of Stockton's filing for Chapter 9 protection took the city to court. At the center of the debate is whether Stockton's obligation to the California Public Employees' Retirement System should be protected. The judge is expected to rule on Monday.
    DRAKE'S BAY OYSTER COMPANY FIGHTS BACK - The Drakes Bay Oyster Company is fighting to stay open in Point Reyes National Seashore despite an order by the US Interior Department to close up shop. The family-owned, Marin County company's cause has generated controversy, while attracting support from Louisiana to Washington, DC.
    Guests: Tom Vacar, KTVU News; Scott Smith, The Record; and Robert Gammon, East Bay Express.
    IS YOUR COUCH TOXIC? INTERVIEW WITH ARLENE BLUM - They're in just about all our homes - couches and chairs containing polyurethane foam which contain large quantities of chemical flame retardants, mandated by California law. But flame retardants have been linked to numerous health problems, including cancer, learning problems and infertility, and state lawmakers are now considering whether to overhaul the law. The debate was started by Berkeley scientist Arlene Blum, who pioneered research showing the dangers of Chlorinated Tris in children's pajamas. She succeeded in getting it removed from clothing, in 1977. Now, decades later, she's back on the front lines battling flame retardants, this time, in our furniture.

    Washington Week [#5239H] * The Supreme Court heard arguments in two cases on the future of same-sex marriage this week. The first challenged California's Proposition 8, a voter-approved ban on gay marriages. The second challenged the constitutionality of the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which limits the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples.
    While public opinion in favor of marriage equality is rapidly growing, some justices seemed skeptical on whether the court should even weigh in on the debate. Justice Anthony Kennedy, the courts unpredictable swing vote, even went so far as to call it "uncharted territory." We will get analysis of the arguments in both cases from Joan Biskupic of Reuters and Pete Williams of NBC News. Dan Balz of The Washington Post will report on the political considerations lawmakers - Democrats and Republicans - are making when deciding whether to support gay marriage.
    * Congress may be on recess, but that didn't stop President Obama from prodding lawmakers to take action on strengthening gun laws. During a White House event on Thursday he invoked the Newtown elementary school shooting saying, "Shame on us if we've forgotten." However, the prospects for passing stricter federal gun-control measures seem to be fading. At least three Republican senators - Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas - have said they will block a vote on gun legislation. John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times will report on the renewed push by the White House to, in the words of the president, "make sure that fewer parents have to endure the pain of losing a child to an act of violence."

    American Masters [#2603H] Philip Roth: Unmasked Often referred to as the greatest living American writer, Philip Roth's 31st novel - and 4th film made from one of his novels-- is due to appear in 2013. "Goodbye Columbus," the collection of short stories published in 1959, put the 26-year old Roth on the map and "Portnoy's Complaint," 10 years later, propelled him into a scandalous spotlight. Yet he steadily earned the reputation as a man of letters, commanding ownership of the Jewish-American novel and making Newark, NJ a literary destination. He practically invented the genre of factual/fictional autobiography - his thinly-veiled "Zuckerman Trilogy" follows the protagonist's path from aspiring young writer to compromised celebrity. His career was considered dead by 1990 - and then exploded with a dozen best sellers in the past two decades. This film bears out Roth's promise to the director: "we'll speak of everything: women, rabbis, politicians, psycho-analysis, literary critics and me." duration 1:25:46   STEREO TVPG
