by supple, llc. well, folks in the northeast had to dig into their closets for winter coats this morning. it was 17 degrees in montpelier, vermont. 19 in massena, new york. and in the town of mexico, new york autumn leaves disappeared in a blanket of lakeeffect snow. nine inches fell over the weekend. they're digging out in southern california, too. last week six feet of mud covered highway 58 north of l.a. mireya villareal reports it won't be melting away on its own. >> reporter: david quintana is seeing his truck for the first time in five days. >> i think it's going to be totaled. i think it's going to have a lot of electrical problems and probably some water in the motor. >> reporter: he was one of hundreds of people stuck on highway 58 when torrential rains hit the area.
>> i turned and i looked and off the mountain there was just a river of water coming down. and i was really concerned that we were going to get washed away. >> reporter: more than 150 cars and trucks were towed, some to the mojave airport, where drivers scraped off mud and tried to salvage what was inside. back on highway 58 transportation crews were scraping mud off the road. debbie cochran and her daughter, jessica mcdonel, shot this video of the mudslide from inside their truck. >> luckily we weren't farther up where the cars were buried more. >> reporter: the pair waited nearly 12 hours inside their vehicle to be rescued. >> the cars in front of us were floating around, banging into each other. it was really scary, and we were really lucky that we didn't get as much damage as most of these other cars. >> reporter: there are still dozens of cars here at the airport that either need to be picked up or they need to be towed.
million cubic yards of mud still out there on highway 58, enough to fill 305 olympic-size pools. scott, they're hoping to do that by thursday of this week and open up the roads. >> mireya villareal reporting for us tonight. mireya, thank you very much. well, open skies are becoming a problem too. today the transportation department said it will require most owners of recreational drones to register. kris van cleave reports. >> reporter: the number of drone complaints to the faa has surged from 238 for all of 2014 to 969 and counting so far this year. one of the biggest challenges is finding the operator, something this registry aims to make easier. transportation secretary anthony foxx. how do you plan to enforce this, particularly with people who already own drones? what's their incentive to register them? >> we would expect retroactive
registration. this task force will have to come up with those solutions. >> reporter: but how are you going to enforce that? are you going to send the drone police after people? >> the signal we're sending today is that when you enter the national air space it's a very serious matter. this isn't riding your atv on your own property. >> reporter: a new task force will have just a month to recommend how the system should work and which drones should be registered. >> we can't continue to vilify this technology. it's incredible. it will be a game changer in terms of the economy, in terms of entertainment. >> reporter: michael droback runs the small uav coalition. some of its members will be on the task force. >> can they do that in a month? >> do i have concerns about how short of a timeline this is and what it will mean for our industry? of course. >> reporter: secretary foxx gave very few specifics about the registry -- about what the registry would look like. scott, no information on what information will be required or who will have access to it. >> kris van cleave in washington. thanks, kris. tonight israel is building walls to stop gun and knife
there have been weeks of renewed violence. barry petersen is there. >> reporter: it was murder at random last night at a bus station. the attacker and an israeli soldier were killed. as was hefftoom zoroom, an innocent african immigrant in israel looking for work. soldiers mistook him for an attacker and shot him. then he was beaten by israelis who thought he was a terrorist. he later died at a hospital. the palestinians are calling this their days of rage. three weeks of ongoing knife and gun attacks like this one in a tel aviv suburb last week. the attackers can move with ease since palestinian and israeli areas are often side by side. israeli nava segev's balcony overlooks a palestinian neighborhood. being so close sometimes makes her home a target.
israeli police have just divided the two areas with concrete barriers, but that hasn't calmed her fraying nerves. >> we live with a feeling every moment something can happen. and that's a terrible feeling. >> reporter: same area, palestinian side, where hossein daoud, a retired school administrator, believes the palestinian attackers are lone wolves. >> i don't believe that they have a leader for this. i think this is something individual. >> reporter: no one knows exactly what triggered the violence. scott, it may have been about the mosque inside the old city of jerusalem and unfounded rumors that the israelis were going to allow more access to the jews and restrict how muslims could use it. >> barry petersen in the holy land for us tonight. barry, thank you. two more american children were killed by gunfire over the weekend. in chicago 3-year-old ian santiago was shot accidentally by his 6-year-old brother with a
refrigerator. the boy's father is charged with felony child endangerment. and in hempstead, new york 12-year-old deja joyner was hit in the head by a stray bullet fired from outside her home. police are investigating whether the gunfire was gng raelted. what to do about gun violence is the subject of our new series called "voices against violence." we're hearing from all sides of the issue. tonight the father of alison parker, a reporter for wdbj, our cbs station in roanoke, virginia who was murdered alongside photographer adam ward. >> i'm andy parker. my daughter alison was a journalist that was murdered on live television, and that's why i've joined this effort to change things in this country, because we are at war. we have domestic terrorism.
and through our grief we take action. and the first thing i would do would be to impress upon the people that are pro gun that we're not trying to take their guns away. we're not trying to repeal the second amendment. we can't do that. the nra pumps millions and millions of dollars into campaigns, and it's all coming from gun manufacturers, with the extreme portions and factions of the nra and the gun lobby there is no middle ground. i'm going to be going out with the governor to call out these cowards that are blocking legislation to do sensible gun legislation. i believe that if we are successful, and i think we will be, virginia's going to be the model for 2016 for the rest of the country and they can look to this state to see change coming.
parker. we have important news for women tonight. is any amount of alcohol safe when pregnant? and it's cats versus dogs in a new poll. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. huh, fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. yeah, everybody knows that. well, did you know that playing cards
you got to know when to hold'em. know when to fold 'em. know when to walk away. know when to run. you never count your money, when you're sitting at the ta... what? you get it? i get the gist, yeah. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. well, things in the bedroom have always been pretty good. yeah, no complaints. we've always had a lot of fun, but i wanted to try something new. and i'm into that. so we're using k-y love. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both of our sensations. right, i mean, for both of us, just... yeah, it just takes all those awesome feelings you usually feel and it just makes them... rawr...
we know that alcohol during pregnancy can harm the fetus, but is any amount of alcohol safe? tonight there are new answers, and dr. jon lapook has them. jon? >> scott, the american academy of pediatrics is reinforcing previous recommendations saying, "no amount of alcohol intake should be considered safe." the risk increases as alcohol consumption increases but even one drink a day has been linked to delayed growth. even though these recommendations have been in place for more than 30 years, roughly 10% of women still drink during pregnancy and 3% binge. that's four or more drinks at once. the effect -- a recent study of first-graders found 2.5% to 5% had evidence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. >> but you know, some doctors say if you want to have a glass of wine have one glass of wine. is that not safe? >> scott, this report says there's no confirmed consensus right now about the dangers of an occasional drink of alcohol
that's next. oprah winfrey is going on a diet again, this time for a ton of money. today she spent $43 million for a 10% stake in weight watchers. she says that she plans to use the company's mobile app and work with a personal coach. the deal, though, is already paying off. shares of weight watchers doubled today.
fake when it sees one. it is suing more than 1,000 people, accusing them of making money by giving rave reviews online about products that they've never tried. amazon says it undermines trust. and new yorkers are apparently genuinely fond of their dogs. a survey out today by siena college finds dog people outnumber cat people more than 3 to 1. 42% of those who have a dog or a cat say they have cooked special meals for them. 44% have celebrated their birthday. and 24% have dressed them up in a costume. in london they are working around the clock to save time.
minutes. we end tonight in london, where a landmark has fallen on hard times. and in the race to save it every second counts. here's mark phillips. [ bell tolls ] >> reporter: the world's most famous clock strikes 6:00. or does it? big ben's been striking the hour for 156 years. [ bell tolls ] but the thing's been slipping. it was out a whole six seconds last summer. the guys who maintain it like ian westworth have been struggling to keep big ben on time, even using pennies as weights. >> by putting on or taking off a penny on the pendulum like this you speed up or slow down the clock by 2/5 of a second in 24
>> reporter: but now big ben is on borrowed time, so worn out it may have to be stopped and completely overhauled before the 14-foot-long, 600-pound minute hands fall off because the bearings are shot. it would be like stopping the heartbeat of london, says newspaper columnist clinton letts. >> this is the marrow in our bones, this old clock. >> one clock. >> one clock. and you know, the thought of it not being there or one hand flying off or, heaven forbid, the thing going digital is just too gruesome to consider. >> we rightly expect all sorts of things -- >> reporter: it would be like losing yet another old symbol of london. the much-loved hop-on, hop-off buss are gone to be replaced by these unloved models. the old red phone boxes are only kept around for the tourists since the advent of you know what. and london's famous black cabs are now threatened by uber. if big ben were to go -- >> it would be a calamity, a catastrophe, a disaster. and for that reason i suspect they will find a way around this.
york city, i'm scott pelley. >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to "overnight news." i'm jericka duncan. it's being called a real-life sequel to the movie "goodfellas." and it's 37 years in the making. an aging mobster with a rap sheet a mile long is being accused of taking part in a $6 million heist at kennedy airport. lawyers for vincent asaro admit he's no angel but claim the whole case is based on elderly rats and snitches and all of whom either have a grudge or are trying to get out of jail. anna warner has the story from u.s. district court in brooklyn. >> reporter: it was december of 1978 when masked gunmen stole nearly $6 million in cash and jewelry from a lufthansa cargo terminal at new york's jfk airport. today the first alleged organized crime associate goes on trial in a case that inspired
a film classic. >> and these are the guys that jimmy put together for what turned out to be the biggest heist in american history. the lufthansa heist. >> reporter: martin scorsese's 1990 oscar-winning drama "goodfellas" tells the story of the new york crime family that orchestrated the brazen heist. and recounts the violent aftermath. robert de niro played james burke, known as jimmy the gent. he was the suspected ring leader of the crime, a 64-minute caper in which six armed robbers broke into the lufthansa facility and made off with $6 million in cash and jewelry. >> how did they force them to open this room? >> by holding a gun to the head of the man who had the key. >> reporter: in real life prosecutors claim one of the robbery's key figures was now 80-year-old vincent asaro, a reputed member of the bonanno crime family. they allege he received $750,000 as his cut of the proceeds. >> he didn't do it. had nothing to do with it.
pretty much all the people that did it got murdered by jimmy burke. so i read. so the fact my client didn't get murdered would suggest he didn't have anything to do with it. >> reporter: prosecutors are expected to introduce wiretaps and something that used to be unusual. testimony from some of them who were close to him. that's expected to include asaro's cousin and his former bonanno family boss. >> i think the fear from the mob has totally abated. the code of silence went out. it's history. it's gone. it's never going to be again. >> reporter: former mobster sal polisi broke the code himself when he testified against the late mob boss john gotti. he claims he was asked to take part in the lufthansa heist but turned it down. he says no matter what happens to asaro one mystery remains. >> where is the money? >> just a little taste. >> no one has ever managed to find any of the money. remember there was a few families involved and yes, some
the participants but a lot of those guys were killed. were they killed before they got the money? that i can't say. >> reporter: now, the judge in this case has ruled that prosecutors cannot reference the brutal killings depicted in the movie "goodfellas" because asaro is not charged with those killings. he does face one murder charge for an unrelated murder in 1969 of another law enforcement informant. the fastest oceanliner ever built is now rotting away at a dock in philadelphia. the "uss united states" made history in the 1950s, but if preservationists don't come up with millions of dollars by the end of the month the ship is headed to the scrap yard. edward lawrence has the story. >> reporter: for those who sailed on her it will be a day long remembered. >> reporter: when she left port on july 3rd, 1952 the "uss united states" was considered the fastest and most luxurious
atlantic took three days ten hours and 42 minutes, a record that still stands today. it was so fast the ship's propellers were a cold war secret. the "uss united states" would become a symbol of post-war american pride, patriotism and power. but after just 17 years on the open water the ship would be retired, never to sail again. how much does it cost to keep it afloat here? >> the costs are about $60,000 each month. >> reporter: it's been docked here, on the delaware river in philadelphia, for the past 18 years. and the conservancy that owns it can't afford to keep it here any longer. susan gibbs is the executive director. >> it represents the last, best kind of -- the most iconic achievement in ship building and design here in this nation. it's an engineering marvel, a work of art, and it's our history. it's our shared history as a nation. it would be as if the statue of liberty was just kind of chopped
off at her knees. >> how critical is this point in time? >> we are at the 11th hour. maybe the 59th minute of the 11th hour. we have never been closer to saving the ship, and we have never been closer to losing it. >> reporter: gibbs has more than a vested interest. this ship is in her heritage. her grandfather, william francis gibbs, built the "uss united a man with no formal training in marine engineering who taught himself how to build ships. during world war ii 3/4 of u.s. naval vessels built were designed by gibbs's firm. as the war ended, he went back to work on the ship he loved more than anything. his biographer, steven ujifusa, spoke to "sunday morning" back >> he was kind of like steve jobs in that he knew a lot of engineering but he was very much
a visionary. imagine taking a structure the size of the chrysler building, turning it on its side, and pushing it through the atlantic at 44 miles per hour. that's a heck of a lot of engineering. and on top of that make it the most beautiful ship in the world. >> reporter: throughout the 1950s it was traveled by celebrities and royalty. everyone from john wayne and judy garland to the duke and duchess of windsor. and it played a starring role in films like 1953's "gentlemen prefer blondes," alongside jane russell and marilyn monroe. that same year cbs's walter cronkite was a passenger on the "uss united states" as he traveled to london to cover the coronation of queen elizabeth. >> to look at her just could fill you with pride and wonder. she just was a magnificent-looking boat. >> there were more people on this ship than lived in the town that i grew up in. >> reporter: joe roda was an employee on the ship. his responsibilities included delivering telegrams to harry truman. and he shot this video of the president getting off the boat in france.
what was it like being on board? >> it was special. i think that's the only word i could use. >> reporter: anybody who made a contribution to this world traveled on board this ship. >> reporter: but cruise ships suffered as jet planes became more popular in the 1960s. in 1967 william francis gibbs died, two years before his masterpiece retired from service. >> what has happened to this ship since it's been retired? >> the ship was withdrawn from service in 1969. a series of plans were advanced and all failed. and so when the conservancy purchased the vessel in 2011 the first time the preservation organization had stepped up to the plate. >> reporter: for four years susan gibbs has been trying to get financing for renovation and a new home that could cost up to $300 million. ideas ranging from a hotel to a museum or offices. they have weeks before money forces them to sell this piece of maritime history for scrap
it was nearly 40 years ago that a little-known singer from england put on a pair of big glasses, picked up his guitar, and transformed into megastar elvis costello. well, he's got a new memoir out called "unfaithful music and disappearing ink." and he sat down with anthony mason for "sunday morning." >> reporter: cross the river mersey on the ferry to liverpool. >> look how beautiful the skyline is. >> reporter: and you sail back into declan macmanus's youth. >> liverpool's really in your blood. >> it literally is in that my mother's from here, my dad's from the other side. >> reporter: a teenage declan played his first paid gigs here. >> we'd play anywhere that had
we'd play schools and poetry evenings. >> reporter: then he moved to london, took our king's name, and became elvis costello. i've been the spindly singer with the big specs and biting lyrics. don't act like you're above me just look at your shoes >> reporter: whom the "village voice" would call the avenging dork. you were pretty angry on stage in the beginning. >> maybe it came off that way. i mean, i'm not trying to deny it now. but i do think some of it's just the face you're born with and this gap in my teeth, you know, some people like jane birkin it made her incredibly sexy. obviously it hasn't worked for me. but it has made some things i've said sound more emphatic than they are. so even if i'm saying something relatively reasonable or tender it comes out as a threat or
>> god, no. >> reporter: his stage name and a new pair of glasses came with his first record of contract. >> go to the office one day, they say we've got a great idea. we're going to call elvis. i thought they were kidding. put these on. they'd obviously thought it out. i was too kind of nondescript really. alison i know this world is killing you >> reporter: when his debut album "my aim is true" exploded in 1977, he still had a day job as a computer technician at a london beauty salon. >> you were writing songs at elizabeth arden. >> yeah. after hours. so i'd take my guitar in the evening and i'd be playing. >> reporter: one song came to him on a trip to liverpool. >> "red shoes" literally ame to you on the train. >> yeah. >> did you have the words and the music?
the whole thing just appeared. i won't get any older now the angels wanna wear my red shoes >> reporter: elvis would use liverpool as a backdrop for his band the attractions. shooting on the ferry ramp. and at the observatory. >> it's like having the mad castle on the hill. when you were a kid you could imagine anything going on if here, you know. >> reporter: but elvis grew up in london. "i was born in the same hospital in which alexander fleming discovered penicillin," he writes in his new memoir, "unfaithful music and disappearing ink." "i apologize in advance that i have not been the same boon to mankind." >> that top one up there. >> reporter: the macmanuses lived on this quiet street in london's twickenham neighborhood. his mother worked in a record shop. his father, ross macmanus,
notice the resemblance, was a singer and trumpet player in a popular big band. the love between my brothers and my sisters in 1963 his dad played a royal command performance for the queen mother. >> also on the bill that night were -- >> a little group from liverpool called the beatles. my dad brought home the beatles' autographs for me. >> so you glued them in your book. >> i glued them in my book, yeah. >> reporter: elvis was 14 when he saved up to buy his first guitar. >> did you have a guitar picked out? >> there was one in the window. >> reporter: it was in a score across the thames river in richmond.p>> and then the day i got it was pretty great. i walked over with it over my shoulder, you know. >> back across the bridge? >> yeah. i'm a musician now. >> you've talked about this whole idea of the sort of fluidity of identity. >> this also goes back to my dad. >> reporter: to make extra cash his father would sing as other artists on cheap knockoff records. >> and they would do note for
note covers of current hits. and he would be frank bacon and the baconeers or hal prince and the layabouts. so you know, was it unusual to be called elvis? not if your dad's frank bacon. >> you can be anybody. >> and have been. sweet dreams of you >> reporter: he's changed identities and writing partners. is it all in that pretty little head of yours >> for a kid who loved the beatles what was it like to work with mccartney? >> well, i thought it was a prank when i was told that paul wanted me to come and write songs. but you don't turn up, you know, in your short trousers with your fan club card and front pocket sticking out. obviously you have to turn up responsibly with your guitar and a couple of ideas. >> reporter: costello had the beginnings of a song about his grandmother grappling with alzheimer's. veronica veronica >> we made "veronica" into a pop record that actually got onto the radio even though it's
speaking about the unraveling of the mind. never thought it would be like this but now i see >> reporter: a decade later he collaborated with burt bacharach. >> it ended up starting what's become like a 20-year relationship. >> yeah. i mean, we're still writing together now. >> reporter: they're writing two musicals. >> it's midnight and the phone rings and it's burt bacharach. "elvis, where are the lyrics?" you know, it's him driving it all the time. it's pretty great. gee it's great after being out late walking my baby back home >> reporter: he jumps genres, from pop to classical to jazz. he once performed with an 80-piece orchestra at royal albert hall. it's also where he saw his wife, jazz great diana krall, play one of his songs many years ago.
first friends, and she played "almost blue" as an encore. i thought, hmm. >> you had a pretty rowdy life when you were younger. and when you got married again in 2003 did you put that all >> i tried to put it away a bunch of times. you know. i mean, to my shame i didn't succeed in staying true to my first wife, who i deeply love still. she gave me that beautiful son. and diana is, you know, very understanding of that. the rowdy's not gone away but the rowdy's just focused on one person. >> reporter: and on two others. costello and krall have twin 8-year-old sons together. >> we're on tv, people. >> you seem to be really enjoying that. >> yeah. what do you want to know about minecraft? i see you've got a husband now did he leave your pretty fingers lying
>> reporter: at 61 elvis costello is still learning. you used to hold him right in your hand >> that's been the case in all of these adventures that might seem like wildly casting around for something to people who are, you know, dogmatic about rock and roll. >> so for you it's been about the adventures. >> totally. alison >> reporter: and about being a man of many musical hats. my aim is true >> i have 400. >> 400? i don't know. i always liked them. they keep your brains in. most ribs eaten while calf roping... yep, greatness deserves recognition. you got any trophies, cowboy? whoomp there it is uh, yeah... well, uh, well there's this one. best insurance mobile app? yeah, two years in a row.

one of the most famous chefs in london, yotam ottolenghi, has a new cookbook hitting the store shelves today. it's called "nopi," and charlie d'agata got a taste of what's inside. >> reporter: in the heart of london's trendy soho neighborhood sits nopi, just north of piccadilly, which is what nopi stands for. the idea behind "nopi" the book is to challenge cooks to recreate the magic of yotam ottolenghi at home. with the help of his head chef and latest collaborator ramael scully, or just scully as he's affectionately known. scully's the one who burned the miso paste. >> when you came out with it i
thought you're going to have to make another one. that's what you're -- >> that's what you're looking for. >> that is not a mistake. >> reporter: there's more trial than error involved in creating the new dishes featured in the book. ottolenghi discovered scully working in one of his kitchens. the big man with the congenial smile in his words who brought bold intense flavors with asian flair to each of his creations. >> born in malaysia, grew up in australia. my mother's side is basically we have indian and chinese heritage. on my father's side is basically irish and balinese heritage. >> reporter: it was the knack of bringing those early influences together that caught the eye of ottolenghi. >> is it possible for two men like you to work together? you have your ideas, you have your ideas. >> when i first started he'd say this is too much elements. take this out. it's taught me in a way that sometimes too much on a plate does not work being a young chef. but now he's got me three components, make it simple, make the flavors come out. and the whole thing about this
>> he says as if it was easy. it wasn't easy to get him out of his way. he was trained in very formal restaurants. so there was always like 17 elements on the plate. scully, can we lose something? he goes all right, chef. >> these i haven't tried yet. >> reporter: jerusalem-born ottolenghi has built a career on collaborating. the jewish chef who famously partnered with palestinian chef sammy tamimi to bring middle eastern street food to a global audience. the new cookbook includes 120 recipes of the restaurant's most popular dishes. an asian twist to ottolenghi's signature style of combining fresh and innovative ingredients. like the quail with burnt miso butterscotch and pomegranate and walnut salsa. >> we're going to lightly spread it on top. okay, guys? you want to make sure it doesn't overshadow the meat completely. >> we constantly learn from people around us. >> you're open -- not every chef is like that.
>> i think probably the most brilliant chefs do absorb from their surroundings. >> or maybe they don't admit it? >> or maybe they don't admit it. yeah, they might not admit it. >> fans of ottolenghi's previous cookbooks, who now number in the millions, may find the new one more complex. ottolenghi makes clear this is a restaurant cookbook featuring restaurant food. he says the recipes may take more commitment but they're not out of reach of amateur cooks. the quail took less than 20 minutes to prepare. >> and that whole ethos of cooking in a restaurant is what we tried to bring to the home cook. some recipes might be more complicated, others simpler. but overall it's a slightly more evolved way of cooking. >> you're there to challenge your readers. >> we want to take them to the next step. >> reporter: it's about raising the game. dishes designed to impress guests that look harder to prepare than they were. look how beautiful it is...
