6:01 pm
don't expect her to be merely a booster. on kpix 5 this weekend, she said she was not pleased police allowed violence during the protest. >> i believe people need to be held to high expectations. this is an incredibly important department. they need to perform at the highest level. i expect nothing less. but they also have my absolute support. >> i must say the police officers i spoke with seemed generally pleased to be talking to me about the new mayor. we asked her on whether or not she plans on replacing the current chief. she said she likes what she said and her focus is on finding a new city administrator. today is the last day for applications for open positions. applications for the police academy will be taken until january 16th. any minute now sam locardo

6:03 pm
his eyes. late this afternoon the judge dropped the charge attempt ed voluntary manslaughter against him. here's an interview with the doctor just moments after that charge got dropped. >> i'm speechless. i'm sorry. >> it's a very tough time for dr. simon and a very emotional time. he's gone through a significant amount of trauma. this was the right decision. >> dr. simon says he was scared for his life when william osentine followed the doctor back to his home after the road rage incident. he said the fear for his life gave him the right to shoot him twice in self-defense. while the da disagrees and he's fearful of the precedent this case will set in marin county. >> i'm very disappointed obviously in the ruling. i
6:04 pm
think it's the wrong decision. i think it sends the wrong message to the community. i think one of the things i've done since i've been da, i've been extremely sensitive to the issue of gun violence and i don't want that in our community. we have to have some community standards. >> testimony called in to question. osenteen's memory of the incident, he reported having only, quote, flashes of memory. at one point telling police he put his hands up and said twice don't shoot don't shoot but also reporting to police that he didn't remember the doctor even holding a gun. mark kelly kpix 5. it's a big day for supporters of california's high speed rail project and there's no bigger sporter than the govern. he was in fresno today as the state begins building an 800-mile stretch from los angeles to san francisco with
6:05 pm
the first section running 29 miles from fresno to madera. allen martin on why the groundbreaking is happening now and in the central valley. >> the actuality is construction on the 29-mile stretch from fresno to madera got started very quietly in june. skeptics of the project say today's ceremony was a very strategic move to make it politically harder to kill. the reality is san francisco to l.a. in three hours is still a long way away. >> to hear jerry brown talk about a high speed rail was very much his wife's idea. >> but also my wife ann who used to be a republican, and when she said no, you've got to take this money and you've got to build the fact is she was a republican gave me a lot of confidence. >> we'll get to the money in a bit. but to hear fresno's mayor speak at today's groundbreaking, the first 29-mile segment of the bullet train project is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
6:06 pm
>> a project that promises to connect northern, central and southern california together like never before. >> reporter: high speed rail has been on jerry brown's radar since he was first elected governor in the 70s. now his age is the mid 70s. and he's more determined than ever to see california become the first state in the country to have bullet trains even though the completion date is 15 years down the road. >> 2030. you may think that's around the corner. but i'll be 92 in 2030. so i'm working out pumping iron, eating vegetables. i want to be around. >> reporter: who will be around? future taxpayers and a couple of picked ones were in fresno today. >> we are supporting high speed rail because we want more choices, particularly sustainable choices. >> reporter: the choices are proving costly. in 2008 voters approved $9 billion in bonds for the project. the state legislature kicked in a billion per year more, and the federal
6:07 pm
government made promises. but with republicans now in charge of both the u.s. senate and house, federal dollars are questionable. critics say it best. high speed rail is only about half funded. but the governor not worried. >> because i wasn't quite sure where the hell we're going to get the rest of the money. but don't worry about it. we're going to get it. >> not a lot of opposition today. about a dozen demonstrators shouted show me the money. certainly there are some in sacramento saying the same thing. in the central valley the jobs would be welcome. remember, the first 300 miles would mostly be in the valley from merced down to burbank. >> part of this process has been the legal challenges, people giving up property, there's some imminent domain things going on. >> some of those lawsuits are settled. many are not. one was filed actually by the madera farm bureaus. they were saying the rail authority isn't living up to the settlement over the
6:08 pm
loss of farmland. as one farmer put it, they're robbing us blind and they say they could go back to court and sue them again. >> we've got 15 years to work it all out. eventually high speed rail will roll in to san francisco's new transbay center which is now under construction. we got an update on the project today. the 1 million-square foot transit hub south of mission street will connect 11 transit agencies with eight bay area counties. it will feature a park and a number of sustainable features. >> the old transbay terminal had a very inclosed, sort of a different feel to it. it had new transit center is very open, inviting, very enticing to the transit rider as he's going to enter the new transit center. >> so far the project is on track. construction expected to be completed by late 2017. dozens of anti-police protesters arrested for shutting down interstate 80 last month. they're still waiting to learn whether they'll be charged. they showed up in court in
6:09 pm
oakland today but the case isn't ready yet. chp says it's still preparing a report to send to the da. and that could take up to a year. more than 200 people were arrested back on december 8th for flooding interstate 80 in berkeley and emeryville. at the time they were cited and released. the group is demanding the charges against them be dropped. we're getting our first look at a man police say is behind a number of car fires. jason gilliand is suspected of setting three cars on fire near the campbell border. police believe he could be responsible for as many as eight car fires. his mental state very much an issue. bailiffs tell us he had an episode today that canceled a second straight court appearance. there was a levy breach today in solano county flooding hundreds of acres but this was no disaster. kpix 5's don ford on the massive restoration project. >> reporter: what man took away

6:11 pm
does best. >> getting back to its normal routine. >> exactly. we just helped it along the way. >> reporter: a key piece of the project was rebuilding a 3-mile section of highway 37 so the new marsh would not flood the roadway during storms. today the only thing flooding was the old farm and the water came roaring in. engineers say even with a break this big it could still take two or three days for all this water to equalize out. in solano county, don ford, kpix 5. >> once that project is completed it will be open to the public to explore on foot, bicycle, or kayak. still ahead it could have been a washout. a water main break affecting three schools. how one man's quick thinking kept it dry. >> $3,000 to make home improvements. the deal being offered to some bay area residents and how far the cash will actually get you. >> nothing but sunshine today in san jose.

6:36 pm
likely be in this spot? >> people who perhaps changed jobs or got a higher paying job. >> reporter: or people who made more than they thought they were going to. people like anthony who ended up working more hours than he planned but didn't think to report the change to covered california. >> it just goes by the hour and our budget is based on california and their state budget. >> reporter: the exchange says participants should be updating their income throughout the tax year if the income changes. >> when there's an income change during the course of the year to get in contact with the service center to notify about that change. >> nationwide the average enrollee in the affordable care act gets more than $3,000 in tax credits. but if your income increases and you don't recalculate your credit, you could be in for that surprise. the stock market extended its slide from yesterday as the price of oil continues to tank. u.s. crude has fallen more than 50% since june. the dow lost
