Washington Business Report: Sept. 21, 2014

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Rebecca Cooper - Sun, 21 Sep 2014 09:26:26 EST

 :

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - This week on Washington Business Report with ABC7 national correspondent Rebecca Cooper:

CEO: No-fee airline saves big by not charging

&ldquo:Today, there are low fares offered at virtually every airport in the United States. That was not the case up until 2000,&rdquo: says Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly, citing the launch of low-cost carrier Jet Blue 14 years ago.

Previous to that, &ldquo:wherever Southwest flew, that made that airport the low-fare airport and it provided a competitive opportunity to draw traffic in, away from other airports. And that has changed dramatically,&rdquo: he says.

Jim Dinegar, head of the Greater Washington Board of Trade, stepped in with the microphone this week while Rebecca Cooper is off to conduct a One on One interview with Kelly, who enlightened a D.C. business crowd on why his airline is the biggest in the D.C. region.

Kelly explained how being an airline that does not charge bag fees actually saves his company money.

&ldquo:Our estimate is that if we charge bag fees&hellip:we would lose customers. We would have what we call a &lsquo:defection rate&rsquo:,&rdquo: he explains, calculating the move would result in a net loss of close to $1 billion.

Kelly says being known as the only no-fee airline is an enviable position for his company to enjoy. He says most companies would do anything to have such a distinctive asset.

Local company third on Inc. 500 list

With 55,000-percent growth in just three years, Reliant Asset Management, LLC is proof that the Roman brothers have learned a thing or two about generating success.

Good things tend to take time in business. Just ask Reliant Asset Management&rsquo:s CEO and Partner, Barry Roman. Though a worthy player in the modular building industry for over three decades, he was recently able to finally land his pot of gold. After ranking third in Inc. Magazine&rsquo:s fastest growing companies in 2013, the Arlington, Virginia-based company has been subject to attention Roman isn&rsquo:t accustomed to.

&ldquo:There&rsquo:s been a lot of attention. That&rsquo:s been kind of fun. We&rsquo:ve never really done any of that. Our business for the most part is pretty boring,&rdquo: he told Washington Business Report.

Reliant sells and leases individual and group modular buildings all across the country and into Canada, from oil companies to schools. The head of the holding company hasn&rsquo:t let the new-found attention impede aspirations of growing even further. Roman is anticipating another appearance on Inc.&rsquo:s list in the near future.

D.C. Olympic bid

The Nationals win the NL East, the Wizards are once again a team worth watching&mdash:many will argue that it may be &ldquo:our time&rdquo: here in D.C. Could we be on the heels of hosting our first Olympic Games in 2024?

The Washington 2024 movement has been steadily picking up momentum, with several big names attached and a unique bid to the Olympic committee as potential host.

Washington Business Journal Editor-in-Chief Doug Fruehling tells fill-in host Bruce DePuyt during a roundtable discussion that the Olympics present an opportunity for an economic boom in D.C., and also a rare chance to &ldquo:redefine what Washington means to the world.&rdquo:

International stress affects local economy

From Ebola to ISIL, the D.C. region might ironically be seeing a bright spot in the international chaos, the panelists agreed.

Though crisis is generally never a good thing for a business, D.C. is one place that actually tends to benefit during critical situations, says Jim Dinegar, Greater Washington Board of Trade CEO. Businesses in the capital region tend to secure contracts in health and security sectors.

Dinegar did warn that local businesses do need to reexamine their crisis recovery plans to be able to survive crisis periods with the least amount of damage possible.

Virginia lawmakers talk of bipartisanship, but show little sign of progress on key issues

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - Skip Wood - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:20:15 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Wait. What?

With scant seconds remaining during Wednesday&rsquo:s first segment on NewsChannel 8&rsquo:s NewsTalk, a spirited discussion with Virginia state Senator Barbara Favola (D-Arlington) and state Delegate Tim Hugo (R-Fairfax), it was left to the latter for a quick wrap-it-up comment.

&ldquo:We need more bipartisanship,&rdquo: Hugo said, &ldquo:just (like it&rsquo:s) breaking out all over the place on your show.&rdquo:

That&rsquo:s not exactly how it went down, though.

Yes, both Northern Virginia politicians agreed that Gov. Terry McAuliffe&rsquo:s emergency budget plan that slices 3 percent from the state budget is a good thing.

Yes, especially in light of former governor Bob McDonnell being found guilty of numerous corruption charges, they both agreed on the need to revisit Virginia&rsquo:s notoriously thin ethics standards.

Other than that?

More of the same.

Chief among the familiar points of argument: Medicaid expansion, something McAuliffe ran on big-time during his defeat last November of Ken Cuccinelli.

The GOP-controlled House of Delegates has steadfastly rebuked the governor&rsquo:s efforts to expand care to an estimated 400,000 Virginians, and the special session scheduled for later this week to address just that topic portends more of the same &ndash: especially given that Republicans now control the Senate.

Favola dutifully rattled off the T-Mac talking points that poor-but-nonetheless-hard-working Virginians desperately need the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, that to block expansion would be denying folks a chance to improve their lives &ndash: if not save their lives.

Hugo dutifully rattled off talking points about why such expansion would be bad for the state &ndash: namely, because it&rsquo:s little more than an extension of &ldquo:Obamacare,&rdquo: a term he used multiple times.

He said Virginia doesn&rsquo:t need more handouts from the federal government.

She said Virginia already gets tremendous benefits from the federal government.

He said.

She said.

Bipartisanship breaking out all over the set of NewsTalk?

In a word, no.

Arlington County purchases new helmets to protect student football players from concussions

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - Jummy Olabanji - Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:15:48 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: High school football is underway across the region and Arlington County has taken an extra step to help protect its football players from injury: new helmets.

Arlington County officials recently spent roughly $70,000 dollars to swap out every helmet that will better protect their student athletes from concussions.

&ldquo:We want to do the best possible things for our kids,&rdquo: said Arlington County Supervisor of Athletics Debbie DeFranco.

According to a recent study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, the number of concussions in U.S. high school athletes more than doubled between 2005 and 2012.

Some football players at Wakefield High School in Arlington say concussions aren&rsquo:t something they think about often.

&ldquo:When your adrenaline is rushing it&rsquo:s kind of in the back of your mind, you don&rsquo:t really feel the pain as much,&rdquo: said senior quarterback Riley Wilson. &ldquo:[But] my mom, she is always worried about concussions or just getting injured in general.&rdquo:

DeFranco looked at research done earlier this year at Virginia Tech. The Tech study looked at helmet&rsquo:s ability to reduce concussion risk through 120 impact tests. Arlington purchased the helmets that rated the highest.

&ldquo:These helmets also have the ability, should the technology be developed, to put in sensors to judge the numbers of hits, the intensity of the hits, these helmets are much more developed towards the future,&rdquo: said DeFranco.

Some Wakefield students said they appreciate the new helmets.

&ldquo:When you feel safe with the new helmets, you can do more,&rdquo: said junior defensive back Cameron Graves.

&ldquo:We want them to play fast and to be aggressive and to make sure that they are doing the best that they can on the field: not worry about whether or not they are going to be taken care of by the equipment that's been given,&rdquo: said Wayne Hogwood, Wakefield head coach.

Other than the helmets, there is something else new this season, but it's not something that you'll be able to see. There is a new protective layer of padding under the field. Hopefully it will absorb some of that impact and decrease the number of injuries.

Parents, students, and school officials are planning to continue the discussion about concussions at a public meeting Monday night at Wakefield High School, which is located at 4901 S. Chesterfield Rd. in Arlington. at 7 p.m.

Bernard Gavrin, WWII soldier reported missing in 1944, buried at Arlington National Cemetery

ABC 7 WJLA National News - The Associated Press - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 19:22:30 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - An Army private who went missing in World War II was buried at Arlington National Cemetery after his remains were recovered seven decades later.

Bernard Gavrin of Brooklyn, New York, was 29 when he fought in the Battle of Saipan in the Pacific theater in 1944. Gavrin was reported missing in July 1944, after Japanese forces launched a suicide assault, known as a banzai attack, on Gavrin's unit, the 105th Infantry Regiment.

In recent years, excavations on Saipan by a Japanese nonprofit group have turned up the remains of American and Japanese soldiers.

Military officials say Gavrin's remains were uncovered last year and identified through dental records and a DNA analysis that matched Gavrin's nephew.

Burial with full military honors was held on Friday afternoon.

Data: Pedestrian killed in area once per week so far in 2014

ABC 7 WJLA DC News - - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 10:25:12 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Though cities around D.C. are often lauded as being some of the most ":walkable": cities in the nation, that doesn't necessarily translate to walker safety, it seems.

WTOP reports that recent data from area police indicates that, so far in 2014, pedestrians in areas of the D.C. Metro region have been fatally struck at a rate of about one per week.

So far this year, 38 pedestrians have been fatally struck in the area, which puts the area on track to pass last year's number of fatalities, which was 45.

WTOP cites an increasing number of people walking as part of their daily routines, combined with smartphone distractions for drivers as contributing to the apparent rise in pedestrian-versus-vehicle accidents.

Of note is the fact that roughly half of the accidents occurred on streets where there is no crosswalk for pedestrians.

Data for the study was provided by police departments in Fairfax, Arlington, Loudoun, Montgomery and Prince George's counties, as well as the City of Alexandria and the District of Columbia.
