an in-person meeting. we're for an opens you internet for all.sing. we're for creating more innovation and competition. we're for net neutrality protection. now, here's some news you may find even more surprising. we're comcast. the only isp legally bound by full net neutrality rules. good evening. we will start with breaking news near santa cruz. there has been an earthquake just outside hollister. no reports of injuries or damage. of course, people feel one of this size. a 3.9 quake has been reported
near hollister. our coverage twins on twitter. a stunner tonight for the university of virginia where it appears a woman who claims she was a gang rape victim may have made up part of her story. she gave a vivid description of the attack. campus fraternities were suspended. they never spoke to the suspects in the case. now there appear to be discrepancies in her account. in the space of new information, we have come to the conclusion that our trust in the victim was misplaced. los angeles blees detectives met with a woman who claims to be a sexual assault victim of bill cosby. they offer no further details. someone has vandalized his star on the hollywood walk of fame. you might be able to make out the world rapist squalled over it several times in the picture.
more than a dozen women have accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting them. the hollywood chamber of commerce says critics should project their anger in some way other than vandalizing a california state landmark. a $200 million free way project is two years behind schedule and getting a lot more expensive. abc 7 news learned the cost is expected to go up. they will ask for millions more to pay for what is calls unforeseen issues. they are building a freeway bypass on highway 101. abc 7 news started investigating the bypass soon after the work began last year. the project is now about half finished. and it has not gone smoothly. they estimated it would cost $210 million. now officials are asking the state transportation commission for $65 million more.
in most projects, they give a detailed break down on how they will spend extra money that they are requesting. but not in this case. in this instance, they are literally refusing to tell us exactly how your tax money is going to be spent. but take alook at the problems with the project and you will get some idea of how costs have escalated. from the start, there have been angry protests and lawsuits from environmental groups. >> you are threatening our community. >> erosion at the site sent pollution into a creek. they were charged with violating the u.s. clean water act. construction crews accidentally damaged or destroyed a known native american archaeological site that was supposed to be protected by law. local tribes say they have discovered 30 more potentially important indian sites. they accused them of not doing enough to find and protect their
sacred history. >> you hired experts and they failed. >> the bypass is designed around highway 101 traffic in the middle of willis. the counsel of governments supports it. >> this is for the benefit of goods movement and the traveling public and for those people in the bay area who come up here on weekends or vacations. >> the project is huge, six miles long, running through habitat for threatens salmon and trout. it includes filling in more than 40 acres of federally protected wetlands. the impact is so severe, they are required to do the largest environmental mitigation in its history to compensate. they have had trouble meeting permit requirements. >> though bully, they delay, they drag their feet, they basically don't do what the agencies are asking them to do. >> they refuse to talk with abc 7 news on camera about the project. last year a spokesman disputed the charge.
>> we are going to follow any requirements by our permitting agencies. >> that's what they said. in june, the department was so far behind in its environmental requirements, the u.s. army corps of engineers suspended the permit and shut down most of the work on the bypass. it took almost three weeks to broker a deal to get the job up and going again. and now there's the matter of that huge cost overrun. the bypass was planned for years as a four-lane free way. at this point, only two lanes are being built, even so, they appear likely to spend as much money as was originally planned for four lanes. although they will not give us a break down of what the extra money will be used for, abc 7 news has learned it does not include tens of millions needed to repair the environment. that means they will likely have to ask for a lot more money in the future. what will taxpayers get in return? documents estimate it will save drivers ten minutes during peak traffic times.
60 miles up the road, another setback. after years of opposition, a plan to widen highway 101 through the redwoods of a state park has been rescinded. they hoped to straighten out curves to allow longer trucks to pass through. conservation groups claim the work would damage the roots s ancient trees. the project is under further environmental review in hopes of going forward. coming up next, remembering pearl harbor. >> the a get set for the season...
infamy. >> reporter: on december 8, while the president was asking congress to declare war on japan, ships of america's powerful pacific fleet were still smoldering. just a day earlier, a surprise attack by japanese bombers and torpedo planes cut a corridor of discussion. richard johnson was a young sailor on board the uss san francisco getting ready for recreation. >> i look at the airplanes coming over and they are lined up and going slow. there's so many airplanes flying around in pearl harbor, it didn't mean much. >> reporter: they were headed for battleship row. johnson watched the bombs fall. they began smoking. one landed in the vault where shells and gunpowder were stored. a blast destroyed the ship and killed nearly 1,200 members of the crew.
john tate was below deck on the cruise su s solution when her skipper decided to get out of pearl into deeper water where she could maneuver. they nearly ended up sailing to their doom. >> there was a submarine waiting for a ship. they fired two torpedos at us. there was a reef between us. the reef took the hit. >> reporter: on december 10, they sailed back into harbor to a scene of carnage. >> we just didn't think that the japanese would be that bold to come all that way. we thought we were impression nabl. >> reporter: after four years of battle, the victorious sailors, soldiers and marines sailed home with a firm conviction not to be caught unaware like that again. for their efforts, they would be labeled the greatest generation. that generation is disappearing. these men are in their 80s and 90s and there may be fewer than 2,000 pearl harbor veterans with us. with age comes frailty. but also wisdom and forgiveness. john tate and his family were
stationed in japan for three years. >> when they found out that we were -- that i was at pearl harbor, it took them aback. we got along good with them. they're wonderful people. >> reporter: through the flames of war, they made lasting friendships and saw incredible sight and age is now doing what combat couldn't. but those who remain want us to remember a simple but overlooked truth, no one hates war more than the people who have to fight them. eric thomas, abc 7 news. just ahead tonight, the threat of landslides in neighborhoods where you live. >> how close
jobs numbers are impressive. 321,000 new ones last month, largely due to holiday hiring. the unemployment rate remains at a six-year low of 5.8%. this will be the best year for new jobs since 1999. b.b. disclosed a data breach in which hackers may have been able to get the account number on your credit card. it happened over the 2 1/2 weeks before thanksgiving at their 200 stores around the country. as the bay area gets more rain, the risk of landslides may be growing. researchers are keeping a close eye on soil monitoring stations like this one. a latest measurements show the soil is two-thirds of the way towards saturation. two or three more storms like the one we got this week could cause a landslide. >> two-thirds of the landslides
have happened in january and february. that is because we got storms like the one we just had that fill up the sponge, if you like, with moisture and then on comes the storm with the rainfall that can cause widespread land slides. >> we have had this drought for several years. during normal winters, we average a landslide every couple of years or so. isn't it ironic we have been waiting for rain? now we have it, we have problems. >> let's check on the latest on our weather situation. >> we're tracking showers that are pressing through the bay area. live doppler will show you hit or miss and scattered in nature, but still a couple downpours in the east bay. we notice just north of san romone and a heavier downpour through collinsville and even moving north into sacramento. that's the heaviest of the rape we see right now. as we move to the north bay,

mastered that art of saying nothing. he thinks it's fine. heading into sunday's game, the truth is he has more to worry about than questions from pesky reporters. veteran quarterbacks are more at ease dealing with the media. they know how to handle us. harbaugh says he's not being rude, he's just being kap. >> you don't know him. he's a determined person. he is very professional. he always stands up. he never dodges or deflects criticism. he takes accountability. and he is -- he is honest. he tells the truth. questions you were asking, he was -- he was telling the truth. >> in very short sentences. florida state the only unbeaten team many major college football. they were ranked number one. they have been drifting down. now to fourth as they head into the acc championship game tomorrow against georgia tech.
12-0 but consistently fall behind in games and have to pull off dramatic comebacks. as a result, alabama, oregon and tcu have jumped over them. >> i don't know why they let anybody leapfrog florida state. to me, i think from a coaching standpoint, the bottom line is you try to win the games. >> our goal is national championship. bu but you have to be a division champion slp. going through our league, tough conference. >> enormous implications tomorrow. tcu facing iowa state. then at 5:00, number 4 floor sta florida state versus georgia tech. our special guest is the foster farms bowl. soccer star of the earthquakes was in oklahoma today visiting a
native american school. he is part indian and his grandmother attended that school putting on a little exhibition with the ball. he had a message for the young students there. >> have someone believe that they can do it, they can move on, go to whatever level they want. they set goals and continue to work at those. >> tiger woods played his first competitive round of golf yesterday at the hero world challenge near his home. it did not go well. he finished five over. the 14-time major chaionship winner, tiger's second shot on the par 5 13, within four feet of the hole. would sink the putt for eagle and mixed in three birdies, including this one. his second st from 85 yards out on the par 4 14th, he would shoot a 2 under 70 for the day. he is 3 over for the tournament. 18th and what happens to be last place.

the 49 ers play the raiders. neither team is having a stellar season. what's most on line is bragging rights. there's something else very important riding on the game, reputation and image. both tarnished shamefully the last time the teams met three seasons ago. two shootings, two assaults, nasty behavior and fights in the stands forced the preseason rivalry games to be canceled. the so-called fans bear the responsibility. who do they think they are? making it frightening for parents to take their kids to a football game. so do the teams in the nfl. everyone knows there's a serious drinking problem across the league. on game days gallons of beer sold at concession stands, gallons more guzzled by tailgaters who arrive hours before kickoff and start drinking. all of the emotion of a football game and all of that alcohol, of course, there will be problems. since when did sporting events become one big drunken frat party? it's time to knock it off, time
to crack down for real. what really matters is that family fun should stay for families, not drunken idiots who ruin it for everyone else. let me know what you think. follow me on twitter and facebook. that's it for this edition of abc 7 news. coverage of breaking news does twin on twitter. >> we appreciate your time. we will see you at 9:00 and 11:00. >> have a great evening, everyone. get set for the season...
