the possibility. >> my experience said you may as well go as big as you can. >> reporter: there is the tug of war about where the extra $125 million a year should go. >> ferries, transit systems, bart. we should stand up and make sure it's spent here, not on other projects in san francisco. >> you have nine counties that you have to plug in. the metropolitan transportation commission is usually the nexus to the legislation. it requires their active engagement. it took us over a year to negotiate the last one so it's nothing you can put together overnight. >> given the failure of sacramento and washington, dc we have no choice. >> reporter: there's a political angle at play here, as well. you see, unlike a gas or sales tax, which everyone pays, only about a third of the voters in the bay area use the bridges regularly. so that means, two out of three voters won't have to pay. >> so it's really a tax or fee

6:24 pm
and the permit was approved at a cost of $461. >> but you know, i was going to do it but it didn't seem at that point that i had to do anything other than just paying some money. >> reporter: but the neighbor had a trick of his own. he waited until the last possible moment to file an appeal to the planning commission. so it couldn't be heard any earlier than tonight's meeting. that meant sam couldn't operate last weekend. and now only he has two days to finish construction before halloween if the permit is finalized tonight. so you don't even know what's going to happen after tonight >> i have no idea. i have no idea what's going to happen tonight or after that. i'm pretty much just, you know, living here floating around. >> reporter: sam, who started this when he was 11, has learned a great deal from this project center carpentry to set design to managing a small business. and now he is learning a new lesson about city bureaucracy. but then you actually experience it and you realize,
6:25 pm
man, like is this all worth it for democracy? like i'm not trying to get into political-ness, but is it worth it?! >> reporter: there's no telling what will happen tonight. there may be even more delays and political-ness. but he says no matter what, the show will go on even if it makes the neighborhood will have a rather spooky thanksgiving this year. in albany, john ramos, kpix 5. >> sam says he regrets losing at least two days worth of donation for the food bank but he says all the publicity means there will be more visitors than ever when he does finally open. bart executives say a small change is coming and will make a big difference for commuters. they say they are adding an extra door to train cars. the third door will reduce crowding, get people on and off the trains quicker. bart execs say they will begin testing those trains this year. they hope for full integration of the new trains by 2016. coming up in our next half- hour, the republican presidential candidates are battling it out. we are monitoring tonight's debate and the fight between

6:28 pm
6:29 pm
you can bet we will be follg up on our exclusive report t bay area bridg checking our top stories, you can bet we will be following up on our exclusive report about bay area bridge tolls. our phil matier telling us there's now talk about bumping up the cost to cross the state- owned bridges. no word yet on exactly how much it would go up or how soon an increase would happen. we are also following a big speech in oakland. the city's mayor libby schaaf delivering her first state of the city address. it comes as an exclusive kpix 5/surveyusa poll shows residents have a more optimistic view of the direction oakland is headed. schaaf has a 48% approval rate,double what mayor quan had in 2014. and a story we broke on monday for you, a gruesome murder in san jose, a man tried to confess to killing his girlfriend. he went to the santa clara county jail but was turned
6:30 pm
away. the deputy he talked to sent him to the san jose police headquarters instead. she is reassigned. the top 10 republican candidates are facing off in boulder, colorado in their third debate. ben carson and donald trump are at the top of the polls. the fireworks though, they got started with jeb bush. >> he is a gifted politician. but marco, when you signed up for this, this was a six-year term. and you should be showing up to work. i mean, literally, the senate, what is it, like a french workweek? you get like three days where you have to show up? you can campaign. or just resign and let someone else take the job. there are a lot of people living paycheck to paycheck in florida, as well. they are looking for a senator who will fight for them each and every day. >> wow. the couple of different things to say to that. kpix 5's political analyst melissa caen joins us. what about carson and trump? why are all the fireworks between bush and rube joe? >> it's something we haven't seen yet and bush knows he has
6:31 pm
something to prove. what's interesting is that rubio is a bit of a men tee of jeb bush's and these men have known each other in florida politics for a long time but here's what's clear. they are going after the same donors and the same voters and they know they have to start putting daylight between them and substantively there isn't a lot of disagreement between the two so now we have personal attacks. but that clip did not show rubio who gave it as good as he got it, gave an excellent answer so going to be a very, very good matchup between bush and rubio. but having said all that, there were other places where there were fireworks where there actually was not. >> i do, however, believe in reagan's 11th commandment and will not be engaging in awful things about my compatriots. >> so would you say that trump -- has he switched up his strategy? i really thought that the fireworks obviously would come from him. but that sent really what we have been seeing. >> that's right. trump has really been hands off.
6:32 pm
he has been very friendly. he gave an answer and referred to ben carson as his friend at one point so i think he understands that going after ben carson is not a winning strategy even though ben carson is his biggest rival. next to him it's much more difficult to go after him than at a rally where he has been taking some swipes but the big matchup between carson and trump doesn't seem to be materializing. >> let's talk about the earlier debate. there were some fireworks coming from lindsey graham. >> so great. [ laughter ] >> lindsey graham has just -- you know, he so unburdens it now by the possibility of winning he has actually become a one line wonder just singer sooner after sooner. >> good god look who we're running against, of the number one candidate on the owe side thought she was flat broke after her and her husband were in the white house for eight years. the number two guy went to the soviet union on his honeymoon and i don't think he ever came back! if we don't beat these people,
6:33 pm
who the hell we gonna beat? >> i mean, you could almost feel the pressure has just been lifted from his shoulders, right? he is just going for it and having a good time obviously. >> he has a reputation as being someone who is really funny but not something that we have seen so far. but now that -- now that there's really no shot he might as well give himself a good billing for the speaker circuit after the election. >> the next debate is november 10, fox debate. >> thank you. and we'll have a full wrap- up of the debate tonight at 10:00 on the nightbeat and kpix 5 news here at 11:00. in washington a new budget and new speaker as expected house republicans nominated paul ryan as the next speaker of the house. the full house votes tomorrow but already ryan is predicting a new era of cooperation. >> we are not going to have a house that looked like it looked the last two years. we are going to move forward. we are going to unify. our party has lost its vision and we are going to replace it
6:34 pm
with a vision. >> a few hours later the house rushed to pass a budget to prevent a government default. the senate has until tuesday to pass that same measure which again raises the debt limit and allows the government to borrow freely until 2017. the federal reserve announced today it will not raise interest rates keeping them at record lows. and two reasons why. low inflation and a slowdown in job growth. right now, short-term rates are near zero. the fed not saying when an increase would happen but probably not until next year. investors liked that news. stocks were up more than 1%, the dow up nearly 200. nasdaq up more than 65. s&p 500 went up almost 24 definitely not a bird or a plane. a military blimp broke away from its tether and started floating away. cbs reporter weijia jang on how it finally came down. >> reporter: a runaway military blimp has landed in
6:35 pm
pennsylvania more than 100 miles away from where it broke from its tether this afternoon. it finally landed just before 4:00 in montour county, pennsylvania. >> it gradually deflated and broke into two parts. the tail section came down first and then a quarter mile further on, the main body. >> reporter: the high-tech surveillance blimp that scans the skies over the horizon for potential incoming threats broke away from its ground tether at the aberdeen proving ground in maryland around noon and started drifting over pennsylvania. emergency response officials in pennsylvania say the blimp was dragging a mile-long tether line that snapped powers lines as it went north. >> i saw this thing up in the air and i couldn't believe it when i looked up and it was the blimp. >> reporter: it was floating at 10,000 feet, they can detect missiles, aircraft and even ground targets from boston to north carolina. f-16 fighter jets were tracking the blimp which is part of a $2
