transparent. >> that lack of transparency is only making the concern worse because people are wondering why their own government isn't being more forth coming. >> reporter: and concerns extend to rain water, even here in the bay area. the group "food and water watch" is asking president obama to act quickly to protect food and water from radioactive con tame -- contamination. jade hernandez, ktvu channel 2 news. also today in downtown san francisco, more than 40 businesses are raising money. the fund-raiser is being hosted by the japanese restaurant association as the -- at the hotel niko. there will be food, beer, wine, sake. all proceeds go to the japanese red cross. the event by against at 6:00 p.m. tickets are $150. 7:34. barry bonds is due back in court mr. in about 30 minutes everyone the judge is now considering whether to allow a

this made hosskins look like he's lying. >> if the tape is good for the prosecution, the prosecution will say, we didn't have any motivation to hide the tape? it's good. why would we hide it? if the tape is powerful for defense, i think the people might question the government's motives some more. >> reporter: the tape had been missing for six, seven years, but apparently hosskins found it sunday. he said the audio was on site. the judge says this leads her to believe that this is mostly irrelevant. apparently, the audio does need to be enhanced because it's difficult to here. our legal anna siss think it will be heard. we'll find out in about an hour. back to you. >> thank you, tara. you can get updates on the bonds's trial by going to ktvu.com. click on the bonds's try tab and you can tune in at work to watch the news streaming live

technology in the 300, 400 and 500 series, planes that had more than 30,000 take-offs and lands. the order covers -- landings. the order covers 80 here in the u.s. most planes are covered here in the u.s. >> there's a long way to go. a lot to be done. we'll continue gathering facts and evaluating all data related to this accident. >> reporter: interesting to note, the 737 which has been around since the 1960s is the most popular and bidely used jet -- and widely used jet in the world. tori? >> what about southwest? it's already inspected and grounded a number of its planes. so what's the status there? >> reporter: right. so as of yesterday, southwest had grounded nearly 80 planes. 79 planes. they've inspected a lot of them already. we know they've inspected 64 planes and returned those to service. they found three with similar
cracks, just like on flight 812. those are being repaired. a lot of people are asking how will this impact southwest business, a very popular airline? a southwest spokesperson tells fox news at this point, it's really hard to tell. but we might get some idea on april 21st. that's when they have their regular investor call. and we know a lot of people will be tuned into that. >> thank you. i'm sure they will be. 8:49. southwest airlines says it are not raise fares right now. it looks like some of the other airlines are paying attention. southwest didn't go along with the ticket price hike that other major airlines moved ahead with and that's prompts some of the other carriers competing with southwest to consider rear vess -- reversing those hikes. they tried to raise $10 last week to cover fuel costs but they since increased that increase. one expert says southwest likes to raise fares over long weekends and they may do that
during easter. we're also hearing reports of some position shuffling in the works within the obama administration. according to npr, general david petraeus, the top u.s. military commander in afghanistan, may be named the next cia director. petraeus is expected to leave his current job in afghanistan this fall. the current cia chief, leon panetta, is being mentioned to take over for defense secretary, robert gates, who says he will also step down at the end of this year. today, investigators will go back to a remote part of new york's long island. that's where the remains of eight bodies have been found. now, police think they may be the victims of a serial killer. the remains of four women who worked as prostitutes were found in december. last week, a fifth body was found. then yesterday, three more bodies were found. police started searching this area after a 24-year-old prostitute disappeared. she had agreed to meet someone
