>> they are afraid it's going to jump that mountain to this back hill and if it does then we're -- it could catch the fire. >> rv starting to catch fire. >> reporter: flames engulfed a number of recreational vehicles and agricultural buildings next to a strawberry farm. that fire led to a hazardous materials warning. officials barred anyone from going near the facility for fear that pesticides fertilizer or diesel fuel could be part of the fiery mix. buildings up in flames east of camarillo. why are we seeing fires so early? >> a big part is the dryness. not enough moisture whether it be snow pack, whether it be rainfall. >> reporter: in fact officials say california's snow pack is just 17% of normal. so scenes like these, firefighters working into the night to put out hotspots and worried residents watching and
waiting to see if a wall of flames will turn their home to ashes, are expected to continue for months to come. it's the high winds that push this fire to the ocean, but now we're getting a bit of ocean breeze blowing back on the fire. it's that cool moist air. that's helping the flames lay down today. charlie and norah. >> carter thank you. the midwest getting hit by an unusual may storm. winter weather advisories posted from minnesota to arkansas. freeze warnings extend into the southwest. the storm dumped 18 inches of snow in some parts of minnesota. at least three cities had their heaviest may snowfall ever. school has to cancel classes. >> jeff is tracking the cold front. it's may what's going on? >> this is unprecedented. we do not ever see this kind of weather. right now, still heavy snow in
parts of kansas city all the way north to iowa and minnesota. let's show you first of all, april. april was the fifth snowiest in terms of snow cover across the united states. we got that from rutgers university global snow lab. with this snowfall we've seen all-time records. dodge city minnesota. 15 inches. shattering the all time record for the states which previously was set back in 1890 and eau claire, wisconsin, 8.7 inches of snow. the previous record shattered. kansas city, snowing, des moines, snowing. not just snow also the cold. take a look at temperatures 30 in amarillo this morning. we've seen hundreds of record lows over the past couple of days. the good news is we'll see that snow wind down as it mixes with rain. during this afternoon. unsettled probably through tomorrow morning. norah, charlie. >> jeff, thank you. the body of tamerlan
tsavraev has been claimed. a protest outside the funeral home where his body was taken. the funeral home's director says remains have been moved elsewhere. word this morning of a chilling confession allegedly made by the brother. sfwlok dzhokhar tsavraev. elaine quijano is in boston. >> reporter: good morning. new details about the first interviews, dzhokhar tsavraev did with investigators, the weekend after his arrest april 19th. it turns out the boston marathon bombings were not the original plan. a u.s. official confirms that dzhokhar tsavraev told investigators the plot was originally scheduled for the 4th of july celebration. the brothers decided to push up the date to patriots day in massachusetts. april 15th. officials say dzhokhar said the bombs were made at the cambridge home of his older brother tamerlan, who dzhokhar said brought him into the plot only a
couple of months before. he gave varying accounts during the entire viewinterviews and the information was subject to investigation. news much the july 4th plot has prompted police to focus more intently on the security for the huge holiday celebration. officers from boston plan to head to new york city for more training on handling high-profile events. >> we're heading to new york city to learn about the times square plan that they put in place on new year's eve. a high risk event. we will see how they run that event. >> reporter: as the investigation moves forward, cbs news has learned the dna and fingerprints on bomb fragments found at the scene do not match those of tamerlan tsavraev's widow, katherine russell. late thursday a funeral home picked up the body of tamerlan tsavraev from the medical examiner's office on behalf of his family. a spokesman for the massachusetts executive office of public safety would not say which family members authorized
the release. the funeral home is responsible for filing the death certificate, which includes the official cause of death, at boston city hall. that filing could take place as early as today. charlie and norah. >> thank you. with us now, john miller former assistant fbi director. >> good morning. >> where does the investigation stand with katherine russell? >> she cooperated in the beginning with the fbi, answering questions and so on we would note the other day, they showed up at her family's place where she is staying in rhode island with a court order to take dna samples, hair samples, so on to compare with what they found on the bomb. from that point on what -- what's being put out is she's no longer cooperating. what we're actually seeing is lawyers doing their job, which is she retained council andcounsel and she was becoming a target of the investigation. if you want anything not that
we're not cooperating, bring it to us and we'll send you back an answer. >> the big headline, the dna from her did not match the dna on the pressure cooker. >> nor did the fingerprints. >> it could be a store clerk, one of the victims of the bombings, they mayer in er innever know. >> a phone call between katherine russell and tamerlan hours after the photo was leased. >> they want to know what was the nature of the call? did they say they were going on the run, did she give her instructions to assist with any escape? no known tape of that call so really the account they will get of that since tamerlan is dead is hers. >> what is it about her that's puzzling to the fbi? >> it boils down to a classic question, charlie. it will be what did she know when did she know it thing.
they want to know from her, here is a woman who dated tamerlan converted to islam after they were married, who lived in the same apartment, not a big apartment, where bombs were being constructed and pressure cookers bought two or three at a time. is it possible that all of this was going on concealed from you, or did you know it the whole time? >> okay. do investigators believe her insistence that she knew nothing of the attack. >> i think they are very skeptical of it, but skeptical isn't proof. i think that's why lawyers are slowing that down. in texas, chaos at houston's largest airport. a man opened fire inside at the terminal. he died at the scene as anna warner reports. police trying to figure out why the man started shooting. >> reporter: houston police say caramel marcus moore, armed and suicidal when he entered george bush continental airport.
in terminal b but outside the security checkpoint when witnesses say he took out a pistol and fired one shot at the ceiling. >> it happened right here in the airport. real crazy. >> reporter: as people scattered or ducked for cover, officials say a homeland security special agent heard the shots and ran toward the gunman. >> confronted the suspect, gave that suspect verbal commands to drop the weapon. the suspect turned toward the special agent, special agent fearing for his safety and all the passengers in the terminal. discharged his weapon at the same time it appears that the suspect may have shot himself. >> reporter: he died at the scene. but officials say they don't know whose bullet killed him. >> the cause of death will be determined by autopsy. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news that a suitcase nearby contained an ar-15 assault with a fully loaded magazine and additional ammunition in the
car. they found a handwritten note indicating he wanted to kill himself. moore also left cryptic messages on facebook including one posted just before the shooting. that read 45 minutes and 59 seconds in god's shadow and time stops. it remains unclear if moore intended to carry out a mass killing or a case of suicide by cop. investigators are searching for clues at moore's home in beaumont. where neighbors expressed surprise. >> this guy was so quiet and to hear that something like this came out of him, it's shocking. beyond belief. >> reporter: for cbs this morning, anna warner houston. >> president obama is on the second day of his trip to mexico. later today, he heads to costa rica. on thursday he held a joint news conference with mexico's newly elected president. domestic issues dominated that press conference. major garrett traveling with the president in mexico city.
good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie, good morning to viewers out west. president obama wanted to come to mexico city. talk about drug wars gun running border security hassle. president obama's brief stop in mexico city was hijacked by a series of domestic and international issues. in washington defense secretary chuck hagel confirmed the administration is now seriously considering lethal weapons to syrian rebels. mr. obama ignored previous recommendations to arm rebels and still sounds hesitant. >> we want to make sure we look before we leap and what we're doing is actually helpful to the situation as opposed to making it more deadly or more complex. >> reporter: the president wanted to sound optimistic about immigration reform. mexico's economy grew to 3.9% quick last year reducing border
crossings into the u.s. still, half the undocumented workers in america are from mexico. >> we're a nation of immigrants. >> reporter: marco rubio said an immigration reform bill he helped draft is in trouble, because it's too soft on border security. >> the part we still have to do some work on is this board every stuff. it won't pass the house and will struggle to pass the senate if it doesn't deal with that issue. >> reporter: mr. obama supports the current border security measures. we have seen a deficit reduction agenda stall. eager for a victory. mr. obama pressed for action. >> what i'm not going to do is go along with something where we're looking for an excuse not to do it as opposed to a way to do it. >> reporter: the president also said he's going to continue to work to win the gun control argument in the united states senate, even though many lawmakers summoned the
president's own party, believe that issued is dead for the foreseeable future. mr. obama said he's nothing if not persistent. >> given that he said this is just round one, what happens next? >> reporter: vice president biden will reengage the issue in the senate at least as it concerns background checks president obama will work this issue well and continue to work. the white house believes there is polling data that for some of the senators that voted against the background check amendment the first time they can change their minds, that is something the white house is trying to do. >> senator manchin wants to do something, struggling to find a way to come back. >> absolutely. you see families putting pressure on the democratic senators. that's why the white house remains hopeful? >> reporter: the big question the white house has to answer does it use the same background check language and apply more political pressure and hope it can win, or does it change the language to attract senators
that disliked the first time. they hope it will work to their advantage in 2014 and that's a fact that the white house must consider as it looks to legislation and the underlying politics. norah and charlie. >> major garrett, thanks. unemployment hitting a four-year low. the jobless rate went down to 7.5%. employers added 165,000 jobs last month. and hiring in february and march was stronger than first thought. that news comes despite higher taxes and massive government spending cuts. >> new york workers, putting the finishing touches on the one world trade center tower. the final two segments of a spire lifted to the top of the building yesterday. installed in a few weeks it will raise it to a symbolic height. 1,776 feet. it will become the tallest building in the western hemisphere. the tower will open next year. time to show you this morning's headlines from around

federal authorities have arrested three accomplices of alleged boston bomber dzhokhar tsavraev. the three suspects aware that the feds were seeking their friend for bombing the marathon, raced to his apartment and urgently decided to watch a movie. although during interrogation they did not specify which one. but if it was john carter they could be arrested for possession of a bomb. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, prosecutors in the jodi arias murder trial say she has lied from day one. the case about to go to the jury. "48 hours" meyer took us
inside. and probably not the intended audience. can political comedy improve international relations? some small business owners are worried about obama care. they fear what it means to their bottom line. jan crawford, good morning. >> the new health care law barrelling down the tracks fully implemented by january 1st which is causing all kinds of concern and anxiety with small business owner who's say they don't understand how this works or how they are going to pay for it. robin wagner's bakery is known throughout los angeles for artisan bread. but the small business owner is worried about the company's future. >> employees are asking how will this affect me? how do i need to budget myself?
>> reporter: because rocken wagner employs more than 50 employees, he has to offer health insurance or pay a fine of $250 per employee. he says his annual costs would total around $300,000. but what's even worse, he says he can't make any decisions, because the federal government is giving no guidance. >> what are the rates? who are the carriers? who is covered, who is not? >> reporter: president obama downplayed concern this week. >> any time are you implementing something big, there is going to be people who are nervous, anxious, about will it get done? until it's actually done. >> reporter: but it's not just business owners sounding the alarm. democratic senator max baucus who helped right the massive health care bill recently confronted the president's top adviser in charge of
implementing the law. >> i see huge train wreck coming down, and you and i discussed this many times, i don't see any results yet. >> reporter: and senate majority leader harry reid had this to say when a caller asked him about it on a radio show. >> what do you think of max baucus calling it a train wreck? >> max said unless we implement this properly it will be a train wreck, and i agree with him. >> reporter: reid says they need more money to help develop detailed plans to help businesses. the public appears equally as confused. a new poll shows 42% of americans don't realize the president's health care law is on the books. nearly 6-10 uninsured don't know how it will impact them. people want answers, just like business owner hans rockenwagner. >> give us the pertinent information so we can educate ourselves on what we need to do. >> reporter: now republicans say they predicted this all
along and the last thing the government needs to do is show more money at this law. they are continuing to argue it should be repealed. charlie and norah, with democrats controlling the senate, that is not going to happen. a woman is now on the most-wanted terrorist list. her name is joanne chessimard. we have john miller back us with, a former fbi assistant director. >> good morning. >> who is she? >> joanne chesimard was the soul of the black liberation army. in the early '70s, they were an offshoot group that conducted planned assassinations of police officers in new york los angeles, atlanta, san francisco, and joanne chesimard is one of the leaders of the group, ended up in a shoot-out on the new jersey turnpike killing a new jersey state trooper named
warner barker. that was the catalyst for doubling the reward to $2 million and putting her on the most wanted list. 40 years ago. >> they know where she, they think she's in cuba. >> in an incredibly daring escape she was broke out of prison in 1979 and then smuggled to mexico she got into cuba been there ever since. a feature at one of the universities teaching political issues. she is a little bit underground after someone faxed a wanted poster to her. >> how do they get her? >> regime change can happen quickly and you have to have a plan. charlie, cuba is full of u.s. fungtives. willy morales, bombmaker for the
faln live there. robert besco. morena, the armored car robbery from the '80s is there. 70 u.s. fugitives there. she might be top of the heap but getting her, this is the other secret. she and others with false papers provided by the government, have traveled to mexico venezuela, and as she and other fugitives leave the country there is another opportunity there if somebody is in the know. $2 million is $2 million. the jodi arias murder trial has gripped the nation with tales of sex, lies and murder. arias charged with killing her boyfriend. her lawyers will present closing arguments today.

hide the truth. >> stabbing him over and over again and even after slashing his throat from ear to ear and even after taking a gun and shooting him in the face she will not let him rest in peace. >> reporter: the prosecution didn't hold back in closing arguments on thursday calling jodi arias a manipulative liar who deserves to pay for murdering her ex-boyfriend in cold blood. >> it's clear from the relationship there was a stalking behavior from the very beginning. >> reporter: arias is accused of shooting travis alexander and stabbing him 27 times in a fit of jealousy at his arizona home in 2008. at first, the 32-year-old told police she was nowhere near the house, but investigators found a camera loaded with intimate snapshots, putting her at the crime scene, that's when she told "48 hours" it was actually a home invasion gone terribly wrong. >> i heard a really loud pop,
and the next thing i remember i was lying next to the bathtub and travis was screaming. >> reporter: four years later, her story changed again with arias' attorney telling jurors her client did kill alexander, in self-defense. >> travis left jodi no other option, but to defend herself. >> reporter: the "48 hours" interview became such a critical part of the case it was played during the trial. but what also captured everyone's attention was arias' words on the stand. >> how about when you cut his throat. were you crying then? >> i don't know. >> reporter: she spent a marathon 18 days testifying. and when given the unusual chance to ask questions, the jury submitted over 200. the drama has attracted nationwide attention. a made-for-tv movie is in the works. and the hln network which has covered the trial extensively,
says it's seen a double-digit boost in ratings. if convicted, arias could face the death penalty. >> maureen is with us now. what has the judge instructed the jury? >> they have the choice of first degree second degree manslaughter and of course not guilty. the only two possibly on the table are first and second. but it's very likely going to be first. the question is the death penalty. >> why is there so much fascination with the story? it's long running, people even compare it to the o.j. simpson trial? >> i think because there are dozens and dozens of photos of the victim and jodi. jodi was on the stand for 18 days. what is missing in all of this charlie and norah, are the psychological layers. question can consider what's on cable news and the chatter, but it will come down to the relationship between these two people and whether they buy into the psychological layers that

good morning to you. it's 8:00 in the west. welcome back to "cbs this morning." a wildfire threatens 2,000 homes on the california coast. this fire traveled ten miles in just one day. we'll go to the scene. tomorrow's kentucky derby could be historic. we'll hear from the man trying to be the first black jockey in a century to win it all. plus the growing interest in boutique booze. see how a new generation of whiskey makers is changing the liquor industry. but first, here's a look at today's "eye opener at 8." >> this area is under a mandatory evacuation. the fire has burned 10,000 acres. >> the new concern is along the coast. flames burned a ten-mile pass to the pacific ocean.
an entire university is closed today. >> this is unprecedented. we're seeing heavy snow in parts of kansas city all the way north to iowa and minnesota. sources say it turns out the boston marathon bombings were not the original plan. >> so where does this investigation stand with katherine russell? >> i think they're very skeptical about her. again, skeptical isn't proof. why so much fascination with this story? >> really it's going to come down to the relationship between two people and whether the jury buys into the psychological layers that existed between them. this is barrelling down the tracks. it's going to be fully implemented by january 1st, and that is causing all kinds of concern and anxiety, especially with those small business owners. who are the carriers? who's covered? who's not? did you watch the white house correspondents dinner this week? >> yes. it is really really popular here. domino's now has a live webcam that shows pizzas being made. those of you who ever wanted to
spend time online watching other people make pizzas, maybe that's why she left you. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. southern california is facing dangerous wildfires much earlier in the year than usual. the biggest trouble this morning is along the pacific coast. >> that's right. a fast-moving fire is burning north of los angeles. and thousands of people have been forced out of the area. carter he haveevans is in point magoo, california. >> reporter: good morning. as the sun rises here in the west, you can see some of the devastation left behind in this fire. overnight the fire moved west toward the pacific ocean. this area is under mandatory evacuations right now. the fire has forced thousands from their homes. this is day three of a fire season that usually does not begin until july. wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour and record temperatures highs in the 90s fueled the flames.
flames that damaged many homes and engulfed vehicles. it also caused explosions at an agricultural facility next to a strawberry farm. pesticides burning inside one of those buildings caused a hazardous materials situation. firefighters had to keep their distance from those flames for their own safety. there are only minor injuries for a few firefighters to report. actually, one fire captain along pacific coast highway here told me that the cool ocean breeze blowing back on the flames is actually helping out here causing this fire to lay down. charlie, gayle and norah? >> thank you, arter ercarter evans. sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brothers wanted to sell off the bombs july 4th. officials say the plans were finished sooner so the brothers moved up the attack to patriots' day. >> investigators also tell our john miller that female dna found on bomb remnants did not belong to tamerlan's widow.
his family has now claimed his body. he died two weeks ago in a police shootout. we may learn how he died later funeral home files a death certificate. president obama travels to costa rica for a summit meeting. he met yesterday with mexico's new president and the subjects included trafficking across the border. president obama said he will ask congress again to approve new gun laws. >> the last time we had major gun legislation, it took six, seven, eight tries to get passed. things happen somewhat slowly in washington. but this is just the first round. >> with us now, chief washington correspondent and host of "face the nation," bob schieffer. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's begin with gun control. what's realistic? what's possible? >> well, i think the white house now thinks that it might be possible with a little, few changes in this background check thing to actually get this bill
passed, but it's going to take a tremendous push by the president, both in public but more importantly behind the scenes. they have got to find a senator that voted against this a republican who is willing to now vote for it. and whether they can do that i think a lot of that depends on what happens out in the country. you're seeing a lot of the victims of the newtown tragedy now showing up at town hall meetings. it's going to take pressure from out in the country on these senators to get them to do what they were unable to do before. but i think there's still a wisp of a chance but it's going to take a lot of work on record and behind the scenes especially. >> bob, there's a lot on the president's agenda including implementing obamacare. and you saw jan crawford report early on our show about how many businesses are asking questions about how is this going to work? do you think this is the next big story? how does the white house handle it? >> i think it is going to be a
big story, and it is far from resolved. i don't think there's any question that the administration has done an absolutely atrocious job of trying to explain what is in this bill. i, for one, believe it is a mistake to pass legislation that does not go into effect immediately. i mean, you know they passed this law literally years ago, but only now is it going into effect, and people still don't know what is involved here. so they've got a lot of work to do. you heard max baucus the chairman of the finance committee, saying we could have a train wreck here and somebody has got to start explaining this thing to people before it goes into effect. >> bob, i wanted to shift gears and talk about george jones. i know you and many of nashville's biggest music stars paid tribute to him yesterday. you said beautiful things like god made one just like him, glad that he did. what made george jones one of your favorites? >> well i'll tell you, he was a
unique personality. he was also a unique talent. somebody said yesterday that george jones was the only singer that could make the word "church" into a five-syllable word. there's brad paisley. he could do things with his voice that other people just couldn't do. music is the thing that so often gets through -- helps us get through difficult times. and george jones had made so many mistakes in his life but finally at the end with the help of his wonderful wife nancy, got it all together. but you come to a hard patch in your life. you didn't know how you were going to get through it. when you heard george sing you knew that he knew just how you felt. and that made it a little bit easier. and he really had a tremendous impact on our culture. >> schieffer, that's why we love you. beyond journalism. anybody who can paint and sing has a special place here. so what's your favorite george
jones song? then i'll tell you what mine is. >> oh well you have -- for me there's no question it's "he stopped loving her today." >> that's mine too. >> exactly. the great song. this guy that loved a woman until they hung that funeral wreath on his door and then they carried her away. bobby braddock's a good friend of mine and curley putnam wrote that song. it is the best country song of all time. >> one of the world's greatest romantics, charlie rose and bob schieffer, great to have both of you. thanks so much. this sunday bob talks with congressman mike rogers darrell issa. also the changing face of sports with billy yie jean king martina navratilova. one of the favorites in tomorrow's kentucky debbie is goldencents. his jockey is kevin kriger. and kevin believes they are going to win. and if they do they will make history because kevin is black, and no black jockey has won in more than 100 years.
but he says that should not be important. >> reporter: do you know what's at stake here? >> of course i do. it's going to be the first time an african-american has won the kentucky derby since 1902. in my eyes and in my mind it's not about that. it's about me winning the derby. it's aboutut the trainers and the owners and the country accepting me as a kentucky derby rider and looking beyond the complexion of my skin. >> very well said. >> america's changing. >> that's right. because we talked the other day about the first woman, and now we have kevin krigger. i don't know who to root for. i just don't know. >> i suspect i know.

cool hotels on "travel & "travel & leisure" magazine's new "it" list. we'll go through the top picks in just a sec. first terrell brown takes us inside a brooklyn hotel steeped in old-school cool. >> reporter: williamsburg is one of brooklyn's oldest industrial areas. and now home to one of its coolest hotels. the wyatt. >> it started about six years ago. it had to do with beer and the back of a napkin and the idea that brooklyn didn't have a hotel that really represented brooklyn. >> reporter: peter lawrence took on the project of converting a 1901 factory into a modern-day hotspot that preserves the building's past life. >> we left everything we could. all the columns, all the beams inside the rooms you have the existing feeling that's been there for 100 years and the timber was probably 100 years old when they put it in. >> reporter: the 72 guest rooms also incorporate the original
materials. while giving visitors a taste of new brooklyn. >> like all the rooms in the hotel, we tried to incorporate some of the great talent that's in our neighborhood and in our community. so the wallpaper's done by a graphic designer named dan who's in our neighborhood. we have a really well-stocked mini bar filled with all sorts of interesting locally produced treats. >> reporter: if you go upstairs in this loft suite, you'll end up here on the terrace. and one of the reasons this hotel is so popular is this. an unobstructed view of new york city. another draw is the hotel's restaurant. created by lawrence's business partner, andrew tarla. >> some hotel restaurants are really just for the hotel guests. and it feels like you're in a bit of a bubble sometimes. you know we want you to feel like you're part of brooklyn's story. >> reporter: and lawrence is convinced that brooklyn's story will keep growing. >> i would obviously love people
to come and visit now, but we're going to be here for a while. and we have more and more interesting neighbors moving in around us. i think it's only going to get better. >> reporter: for cbs this morning," terrell brown, brooklyn. let's look at some of the other hotels that made the "travel & leisure" "it" list. with us now, the magazine's deputy editor. welcome. >> thank you. good to be here. >> how do you choose these? >> it's a tough job. we send editors and writers out around the globe to check out hundreds and hundreds of properties. and then we distill it to a very competitive list. this year we chose 61 properties that we think are really groundbreaking and really define the various categories that they're in. everything from city as you saw with the weiss, to rustic to beach. there's some amazing properties on the list. >> there's an obvious question here which is any correlation between those that get chosen and those that advertise. >> absolutely not. it really is church and state. and our editors and writers
always go anonymously to check out all of the properties. >> let's talk about charleston's zero george. it made the best city hotel list. why? >> this -- charleston is really known for its antique-filled bed and breakfasts and this is a departure. it is truly the first contemporary property in charleston, but it also mixes in history which is one thing we've seen with a lot of the hotels on the list set in historic buildings as you saw with the weiss but also bringing in modern elements. this is set through a number of buildings. they also have amazing cooking classes. you can learn how to make low-country food. there are beautiful gardens with azaleas and palmetto trees. it's really wonderful little getaway. >> when you think of great hotels, a lot of people don't think let's go to arkansas. but here we are in bentonville, arkansas. >> bentonville, which as we all know, is the home of walmart. and alex walton who is the $21 billion heir to the walmart throne has really been working to transform it into a cultural
destination. >> this is a design category. >> this is in the design category. so one of the properties that has opened is called the 21c. it's like a living art museum. it has amazing installations. when you walk in there is this two-story tree that has basketball hoops for branches. it's really wild. you go into the gym, there are batman sculptures above the treadmills. >> beautiful. what about aspen hotel jerome. that made the list for best renovation. >> best renovation. this used to be back in the 19th century a boarding house for silver miners. they say that ghosts still inhabit the property. hunter s. thompson used to go there in the '. 0s. '70s. auberge has transformed it into this modern version of the old west. they've got steamer trunk dressers, cowhide rugs. it's got this great luxurious feel but also a feel for the past. >> nicely done laura. i'm impressed you could do that with not a note. where are your notes?
>> it's all right here. >> charlie, where are you going to take gayle and i on that list? >> i love the jerome hotel. so we'll go to aspen. >> okay. thanks. >> st. lucia, charles. i like warm weather. nice. >> oh, you'll love skiing. >> i'm not turning down a trip. laura, thank you for coming. go to cbsthismorning.com for all the 61 hotels that made the list. americans are raising a glass to their spirits. sales of whiskey shot up 30% over the past decade. and now some laws from the days of prohibition have been repealed, making it easier for craft distillers to make their mark. jeff glor shows us why that's leading to a potent blend of new competition. >> reporter: inside this stair warehouse in fairfield, new jersey brandt brow is busy making rum and history. the first distillery in new jersey to get a license since the end of prohibition. >> yes. we're going back to creating a
better product from the beginning. >> reporter: in early america, rum was an unmistakable companion for our founding fathers before whiskey really took over in the 1800s. and back then much of the liquor was made in small batches. today that craft spirit is back and in high demand. >> booming. the stuff is flying off the shelves. the distyilleryies are opening left and right. >> reporter: clay writes for "the new york times" and just finished a book on whiskey. he says the rise of craft spirits today is not unlike the explosion of craft beer 10 or 15 years ago with one very important difference. >> the thing with beer is you can make a beer. you can -- at home and after a couple weeks you know whether it's good or not. if you're making an aged whiskey, you're talking a couple years before you even know whether you did it right let alone whether it's good enough
to sell. >> reporter: that's the challenge. he says the traditional liquor brands with time on their side still make a very high-quality product. competition is stiff. still, the craft sector has more than doubled in just the past two years. from 90 operations in 2010 to 180 in 2012. are you able to keep up with demand right now? >> unfortunately, we're not. >> reporter: derek bell who runs the five-year-old corsair distillery in nashville made a name for himself with catchy labels and unusually distinct spirits. whiskey made from quinoa absinthe in red, moonshine that is pumpkin spice. >> i think we have shaken up the industry quite a bit. for a long time all the products coming out of the bigger boys were very self-similar and very much the same. all of a sudden they're changing quite a bit, too. i think that's definitely attributable from the craft distillers because we're taking
a lot more risks. we're creating much different, very unusual spirits. >> reporter: a scotch fan will love this. >> reporter: the new variety of liquors has brought a renewed interest to specialty spirit bars. and we join risen for a tasting at new york's flatiron room. it smells very rich. which has more than 700 different whiskeys. many of them craft. >> it's not bad. i think it's a pretty good craft bourbon. i think there's a little too much burn. >> reporter: risen says some new brands will fail. but most have the right markets and the right mindset to succeed. >> they come to it with a passion. and even if they're not -- even if they don't necessarily have the skills they have something driving them, and they develop the skills. but it's that drive that gets them there. we're making a hops whiskey. >> reporter: the big boys are they scared? >> they better be. >> reporter: craft distillers like bell and brow have already sold more liquor than they've made. >> this is what our label's
going to look like. >> reporter: both betting big money on small craft brands. for "cbs this morning," jeff glor, nashville, tennessee. >> another alternative for those of you who imbibe. a 26-year-old just beat a record set by the beatles nearly 50 years ago. emelie sande is here. there she is. we'll talk about her unlikely road to stardom.
