• SAN JOSE (CBS 5) — San Jose has topped a list of U.S. cities where residents enjoy the longest life spans.

    A study by The Daily Beast and the Centers for Disease Control looked at decades worth lifespan data to find out in which cities people lived the longest.

    In San Jose, the average life expectancy was 79.2 years for men, 82.9 years for women.

    Following San Jose on the list, San Francisco came in 6th. Men there live an average of 75.9 years, while women live 82.52 years. Oakland also made the list, coming in 15th. There, men live 76.4 years on average, women 81.2 years.

    Rescuers were coordinating with officials in the state of Sonora across the Gulf of California in case tides have swept victims or survivors there.

    Corey Bordenkecher of the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, across from San Diego, said the United States has offered to send deep-water divers, but the offer has yet to be accepted by Mexican authorities.

  • SAN CARLOS (CBS SF) — Call it a sign of the times.

    Despite the success of a new business in a weak economy, people in one city are not happy with their popular new neighbor. Residents of San Carlos are upset over the burger behemoth In-N-Out that recently made a new home in their community.

    "I mean, that is one giant sign when you're back here," said Dan Toms, who laughs in disbelief as he takes a gander at the sign that stands six-and-a-half stories tall from his backyard. You can also see the sign from his front yard.
