GOP win in Southwest Virginia Senate race secures Republican control of legislature

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - The Associated Press - Wed, 20 Aug 2014 09:53:43 EST

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - GOP candidate Ben Chafin won the special election for the 38th Senate District on Tuesday, solidifying Republican control of the entire General Assembly.

With 99 percent of the votes counted, Chafin beat Democrat Mike Hymes 59 percent to 32 percent, according to the Virginia Board of Elections.

Independent Rick Mullins had 9 percent of the vote.

Chafin's victory comes after an expensive and bruising battle, which saw both sides claiming they were victims of unfair attack ads.

"I am especially gratified that the voters were able to see through the baseless negative attacks that became the sole focus of the Democrats' campaign," Chafin said in a statement.

Republicans now control 21 seats in the Senate compared to the Democrats' 19. Republicans have overwhelming control of the state House. Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a Democrat.

Democrats had hoped that Hymes could pull off an upset victory in a heavily red district, which stretches across several counties in the heart of the economically depressed coal country in southwest Virginia. If Hymes had won, Democrats would regain control of the Senate, as Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam would be the tie-breaking vote in a split Senate.

With control of the upper chamber at stake, both parties invested heavily in the race. Hymes raised more than $930,000 in contributions and in-kind support, with the vast majority coming from Democratic party funds. Chafin raised more than $760,000, with heavy backing from the Republican Senate Caucus.

"Our entire caucus has been working toward this day since 2007," Senate Republican Leader Thomas K. Norment, Jr. said in a statement. "Having a 21st Republican Senator will help us strengthen Virginia's economy and ensure conservative, fiscally responsible management of the commonwealth's budget."

The seat was previously held by conservative Democrat Phil Puckett. His abrupt resignation in June gave control of the Senate to Republicans, who used their new leverage to prevail against McAuliffe in a monthslong showdown over whether the state budget should include Medicaid expansion. A possible job offer to Puckett by the GOP-controlled Virginia tobacco commission at the time of his resignation is the subject of an FBI investigation.

Also Tuesday, Democrats won newly vacant House seats in northern Virginia and the Hampton Roads area. Rip Sullivan Jr. defeated Republican Dave Foster in the 48th House District, which includes Arlington and Fairfax County. And Joe Lindsey beat Republican Marcus Calabrese in the 90th House District, which includes Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

Gay marriage: Virginia officials prepare for possible Thursday weddings

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Wed, 20 Aug 2014 06:51:08 EST

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Virginia officials are preparing for the possibility that same-sex couples will be able to wed in the state Thursday by drafting a revised marriage license form for courthouse clerks to use as soon as they open their doors.

The state's ban on same-sex marriages was struck down by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which decided not to delay its ruling while it is appealed. Unless the U.S. Supreme Court intervenes, same-sex marriages will be legal beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday.

The revised license forms "would reflect the constitutional right of same-sex couples to legally marry in Virginia by asking for the name and gender of each spouse, whereas before, the form required a bride and groom because that was all the Commonwealth could legally recognize," Michael Kelly, a spokesman for the Virginia Attorney General's Office, said in an email to The Associated Press.

The request for a delay will either be considered by Chief Justice John Roberts or the full court. The court has twice granted delays in related cases.

While they wait on a decision, some clerks in urban areas are already preparing for an influx of marriage license applicants.

In northern Virginia, Arlington's circuit court has prepared an overflow room.

In Richmond, deputy clerks will be brought in to assist that city's marriage-license desk in anticipation of a large crowd.

Earlier this year, the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law estimated that between 5,487 and 7,122 same-sex Virginia couples would get married within three years of a change in law. That's based on 2010 Census figures showing Virginia had 14,243 same-sex couples and past experiences with Massachusetts after gay marriage was legalized there.

To help as many same-sex couples get married as quickly as possible, a network of religious clergy plans on fanning out to courthouses across the state to begin performing wedding ceremonies on the spot.

"I know many couples who have been together, in some cases decades, who are just waiting for this day," said the Rev. Jim Whalen, of New Life Metropolitan Community Church in Norfolk.

"We expect that there's going to be large numbers initially, and I think it'll be very advantageous to have enough people there to do this in a timely fashion instead of people having to wait hours. ... They've waited long enough."

Whalen is the organizer in the Hampton Roads region for People of Faith for Equality, which has commitments from 49 clergy members from various faiths to be stationed at different courthouses around the state. Another 17 clergy members have offered to be on call if they're needed, including the Rev. Linda Olson Peebles of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington.

Peebles said most same-sex couples in her congregation have already gotten married in Maryland or Washington, D.C., where she has also performed wedding ceremonies. She said her 900-member congregation plans to have a celebration Wednesday night if a stay is not issued.

"It's been a long journey," she said. "We're letting everybody know we're going to be ready to join in Virginia moving forward, letting go of its sad history and moving forward."

FBI, police searching for serial bank robber in Maryland, Virginia

ABC 7 WJLA News - - Tue, 19 Aug 2014 11:22:18 EST

DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. (WJLA) - Authorities are searching for a serial bank robber believed to be responsible for at least three recent holdups in Maryland and Virginia.

Agents from the FBI and officers from Prince George's County Police say a man robbed the Capitol One Bank at 6335 Marlboro Pike in District Heights this past Saturday.

The same man is believed to have robbed that same bank on May 16 as well as the Wells Fargo in Arlington, Virginia on Sept. 13, 2013.

Authorities said witnesses have described the person responsible in each of the robberies as a black man in his mid-30s who is about 5'8" tall and around 160 pounds.

In each case, the robber showed a note to a bank teller demanding money, but no one was hurt. He fled with an undetermined amount of cash each time.

Police released surveillance photos (see above) and are offering a reward of up to $5,000 leading to an arrest in these holdups.

Police asked anyone who may have information about these robberies to call the Baltimore Division of the FBI at 410-265-8080.

Arch Campbell?s favorite summer flicks

ABC 7 WJLA Entertainment - Arch Campbell - Mon, 18 Aug 2014 21:17:41 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) – Summer is winding down and so is the summer movie season. Our summer movie season is kind of like this summer’s weather—not too hot, but more pleasant than usual.

This summer’s Transformers reboot, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” holds the title of biggest summer movie box-office hit so far at $243 million. But coming fast on its heels is “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the hilarious “Star Wars” send-up that rates as my summer favorite.

“Boyhood” has received the best reviews of the year—99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. It tells the story of a Texas boy, following him from age 6 to 18. The movie took 12 years to film. I think “Boyhood” is the best film of the year and will contend for an Oscar next year.

The best musical of the summer is “Get On Up.” The James Brown biography captures the spirit of his life and music.

The top DVD rental is “The Lego Movie,” which started the year with awesomeness.

This weekend’s top box-office hit was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

Flacco gets early help, Ravens top Cowboys 37-30

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - The Associated Press - Sun, 17 Aug 2014 12:38:46 EST

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Joe Flacco hadn't even taken the field yet when Baltimore scored its second touchdown to go ahead for good.

After a sluggish start, his second game in new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's version of the West Coast offense turned out solid.

Deonte Thompson returned a kickoff 108 yards for a score after Tony Romo threw a touchdown pass in his first game for Dallas since back surgery last season, Flacco had a scoring toss and the Ravens beat the Cowboys 37-30 on Saturday night.

The Ravens (2-0) also got a 26-yard fumble return for a touchdown when Courtney Upshaw picked up a botched handoff from Romo and stayed on his feet while Romo tried to drag him down by his jersey.

Baltimore led 14-7 before Flacco took the field for the first time late in the first quarter. He threw a 19-yard scoring pass to Torrey Smith for a 24-10 lead late in the first half.

"It was definitely a weird situation, but it's something we could have to deal with any week throughout the season," Flacco said.

Flacco had a rougher start than in Baltimore's win over San Francisco in the exhibition opener, when he led an 80-yard scoring drive on his only possession.

After punts on either side of a drive to the first of three field goals from Justin Tucker, Flacco's only touchdown drive was kept alive by a roughing-the-passer penalty against George Selvie on a third-down incompletion.

The Ravens scored two plays later after Flacco's longest pass of the night - a 38-yarder to Jacoby Jones - and Smith's over-the-shoulder catch in the end zone despite tight coverage from rookie cornerback Terrance Mitchell.

"We came out slow, weren't really firing on all cylinders, and didn't keep ourselves on the field," said Flacco, who was 9 of 14 for 133 yards. "But I thought we did a good job of fighting through it."

Romo was expected to take about a dozen snaps for Dallas (0-2) in first game since surgery for a herniated disk that kept him out of a loss to Philadelphia in playoffs-or-bust finale last December. He ended up with 14 plays, capped by a 31-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant midway through the first quarter.

"He looked good," Bryant said. "He wanted to show the world he is `9' and he's a baller."

Murray had 25 of his 34 yards rushing and a 21-yard catch on the next drive, which ended with Bryant leaping over Ravens cornerback Dominique Franks at the goal line and falling into the end zone.

Romo was 4 of 5 for 80 yards, and Bryant had three catches for 59 yards after both skipped the preseason-opening loss at San Diego, along with several other offensive and defensive starters.

"Some things came up that were a little different we hadn't seen," Romo said. "We were able to communicate and be on the same page and the receivers, me, the linemen. It just shows we are doing some going things and are further along than you might usually be this early."

Thompson answered Romo's touchdown by getting to the left sideline untouched and having only kicker Dan Bailey to beat, which he did easily around midfield to put the Ravens ahead for good. Thompson also had a 50-yard kickoff return.

"He had outstanding vision on the first return and made a guy miss," coach John Harbaugh said. "On the second, he broke a tackle. Deonte made a statement tonight."

Like Flacco, Romo backup Brandon Weeden wasn't as smooth in his second preseason game. He underthrew Terrance Williams just enough to give Baltimore's Chykie Brown a chance to break up what otherwise would have been a scoring pass and finished 10 of 19 for 129 yards with a sack and an interception.

The Ravens gave up 184 yards and 11 first downs with their first team on the field in the first quarter, including Romo's 83-yard scoring drive. But the backups were solid for a team looking for depth on a unit struggling with injuries.

NOTES: Ravens RB Ray Rice played only the second series and had two carries for 21 yards, including an 18-yarder. He has a shoulder bruise that isn't considered serious. ... Baltimore CB Jimmy Smith left the game early with a chest contusion that is considered mild.

Craft beer enthusiasts excited for DC Beer Week

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Tommy McFly - Fri, 15 Aug 2014 23:48:07 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) – Since 2008, brew masters and rookies alike have pulled up a bar stool at DC Beer Week, an event that has the craft beer boomtown excited and thirsty.

“DC Beer Week is a celebration of craft beer—from conception to consumption—in Washington, D.C.,” said DC Beer Week Co-Founder Teddy Folkman. “We’re really showing the diversity of how beer can fit into multi-facets of society.”

What exactly makes a beer craft?

“Craft beer is a beer utilizing, typically all malt, all domestically sourced ingredients, and it’s brewed on a very small, local level,” said Jeff Hancock, the head brewer at DC Brau. “Within the last four years, we’ve seen four production breweries open up inside D.C. lines.”

There are more than 180 events planned during DC Beer Week, which runs Aug. 17-24. But don’t think this is an opportunity to chug on the cheap.

“DC Beer Week isn’t a week for discounted beers or anything like that,” Folkman said. “It’s more showing off what we have to offer as a craft beer city.”

A sampling of events is listed below:

Sunday, Aug. 17 – Brewery Ommegang, Boulevard Brewery and The Odyssey present “The Official DC Beer Week Kick-Off Cruise” – Brewery Ommegang and Boulevard Brewery in conjunction with Odyssey Cruises have brought back one of DCBW’s hottest tickets.

We are excited to work with Odyssey Cruises once again. We find this to be the ideal way to kick off what looks to be the most dynamic DCBW to date,” says Steven Cardello, DCBW Board Member and Director of Sales-South at Duvel USA. The cruise will set sail from 600 Water St SW Washington DC 20024. Tickets will include unlimited beer samples, new food station menu, and DJ entertainment.

Hundreds of motorcyclists crossing Maryland, Virginia for 9/11 memorial ride

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press, Sam Ford - Fri, 15 Aug 2014 18:34:36 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Hundreds of motorcycles are traveling across parts of western Maryland and northern Virginia as part of a Sept. 11 anniversary event.

They left Shanksville, Pennsylvania, Friday morning after visiting the spot where one of the four jetliners hijacked by terrorists crashed in 2001. Friday's route included parts of interstates 68 and 70, U.S. 15 and the Dulles Greenway.

The group was spending Friday night near the Pentagon, where another jetliner crashed.

After visiting the Pentagon Saturday, the ride continues up Interstate 95 to New York City. It ends Sunday at the World Trade Center memorial to victims of the two jetliners that crashed there.

The commemorative ride is organized by America's 911 Foundation to support emergency responders and honor victims of the attacks.

Arch Campbell: ?The Giver? does a bit of re-gifting

ABC 7 WJLA Entertainment - Arch Campbell - Thu, 14 Aug 2014 22:15:55 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) – Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges team up for a new futuristic movie, but is their star power enough to draw people back to the theater this weekend?

“The Giver” does a little bit of re-gifting in this familiar story of a cold, bloodless future.

Bridges plays the Giver, a wise old guy—and the only guy—who keeps the memory of the past, in order to advise for the future. Society assigns Brenton Twaites as his apprentice, and the two conspire to shake things up. Streep has a creepy turn as an all-seeing hologram.

“The Giver” feels like a lot of other movies; it doesn’t break any new ground, but tells a familiar story in an enjoyable way. My give to “The Giver” is two and a half out of four stars.

Sylvester Stallone and company gear up for “The Expendables 3”—geezer action that’s more expendable than ever; it gets one star.

This weekend’s best bets are “Boyhood,” “Get On Up,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Hundred-Foot Journey.”

Next week brings “Sin City: A Dame to Kill for.” Enough said.

ABC 7 WJLA National News - The Associated Press - Thu, 14 Aug 2014 22:22:29 EST

HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) - A jury on Thursday acquitted a federal agent from Arlington, Virginia of murder in his second trial for the 2011 shooting death of a man at a Hawaii fast-food restaurant, but they couldn't reach a verdict on other lesser charges.

Nearly a year ago, another set of jurors deadlocked in the case against State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy, and a judge declared a mistrial.

Judge Karen Ahn later ruled the new jury could consider a lesser charge of manslaughter - an option the previous jury didn't have. The foreman in last year's trial said jurors deadlocked with eight in favor of acquittal and four for conviction. Legal observers blamed the hung jury on the lack of a manslaughter option.

This time, the jury said the shooting wasn't murder, but they couldn't decide if Deedy was guilty of reckless manslaughter, or assault in the first or second degree.

The judge said Deedy could face a third trial on those counts, but defense attorney Thomas Otake said outside court: "We firmly believe there are legal motions we can file to dispose of those charges. ... Our position is enough is enough."

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Janice Futa said she was disappointed with the acquittal and will recommend a third trial.

The family of Kollin Elderts, who was killed, abruptly left the courtroom after hearing the result. They criticized prosecutors last year for not asking for manslaughter, but prosecutors said the evidence didn't support a manslaughter charge.

Ahn said she included it this time in part because the state Supreme Court has since made the law clearer on the issue.

Elderts family spokeswoman Kalama Niheu said the family was devastated and prosecutors didn't do enough to get justice. Futa declined to comment on that criticism.

"Christopher Deedy is a very irresponsible, cowardly individual that took away the heartbeat of our family and forever changed us," Niheu said, reading from a statement. "Because of the poor decisions he made that tragic night, including drinking and walking our Waikiki streets with a loaded personal firearm, we can never forgive him."

Deedy, 30, took the stand at both trials. He maintained he acted in self-defense and was trying to protect others from an aggressive Elderts in the Waikiki McDonald's.

Deedy was in town to help provide security for an international economic summit but was off-duty when he shot Elderts, 23.

Much of his testimony at the latest trial was the same as last year's, but this time he was clearer about his intention to kill Elderts, in what seemed like an attempt to avoid a ruling to include reckless manslaughter as an option for jurors.

Deedy said that when he pulled the trigger three times, he intended "to stop the threat, to kill the assailant."

He was fueled by alcohol, power and a warning from a fellow agent about the hostility of Hawaii locals toward government employees and outsiders, prosecutors told the juries in both trials.

The prosecution tried to portray Deedy as drunk and inexperienced. The defense countered that Deedy had only a few drinks and was acting in line with his law-enforcement training when he intervened in a potentially dangerous situation.

Deedy, who went to the McDonald's after a night of bar-hopping with friends, said Elderts was bullying a customer.

Jurors began deliberating Aug. 5. They got some time off as Hawaii braced for Tropical Storm Iselle and Hurricane Julio.

Earlier Thursday, the jurors were brought into the courtroom, and it seemed Ahn was expecting them to say they were deadlocked and that more time wouldn't help, as she made plans with attorneys for declaring a mistrial if necessary. But the forewoman said it was possible they could reach a verdict with more time, so the judge told them to keep deliberating. They returned with their verdict a few hours later.

"Today is just a day where we're relieved. We're relieved that they acquitted him of murder and that they did not convict him of anything," Otake said. "No matter what, there's no winners in a case like this. ... The Elderts, they've lost a loved one."

Robin Toogood, Manassas principal, had faked resume

ABC 7 WJLA Education - The Associated Press - Thu, 14 Aug 2014 08:47:32 EST

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - Arlington County officials say they warned their counterparts in Manassas two years ago about the inflated resume of a principal who was later forced to resign.

Robin Toogood resigned in June as principal of Jennie Dean Elementary after officials say a background check uncovered he was a college dropout. He claimed numerous college degrees, including a doctorate, on his resume.

Arlington County officials told The Washington Post that they alerted Manassas to his inflated credentials in 2012. At the time, Arlington had appointed Toogood to serve as principal of a Montessori school, but parents at the school uncovered discrepancies in his resume.

Manassas Superintendent Catherine Magouryk, who joined the city school system shortly after Arlington issued its warning, said she was unaware that any red flags had been raised.

Maj. Gen. Harold Green, who was killed in Afghanistan, to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery Thursday

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Thu, 14 Aug 2014 07:01:29 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - The highest-ranking U.S. military officer to be killed in America's post-9/11 wars will be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.

A burial service will be held Thursday afternoon for Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene.

The two-star general was an engineer who worked his way up through the ranks in a 34-year Army career. Most of it was spent developing, building and supplying soldiers with equipment and technology.

Greene's deployment to Afghanistan in January was his first to a war zone. He was killed on Aug. 5 when a gunman believed to be an Afghan soldier opened fire at a military academy near Kabul.

The 55-year-old Greene lived in Falls Church, Virginia, and is survived by his wife and two grown children, including a son who is an Army lieutenant.

American and Israeli Children Learn About 'Good Grief'

ABC 7 WJLA National News - Caroline Tucker - Tue, 12 Aug 2014 19:50:49 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) - Several dozen children belt out the lyrics from ":Cups.":

":You're gonna miss me when I'm gone,": they sing.

That American pop song seems fitting for a group of kids who all miss someone.

":I only remember the night I got the Chapmans knocking on my door,": said Jay Stoddard, a camper.

Home movies help 13-year old Jay remember his dad, James.

Jay was just 4 years old when he learned that his dad had died.

":He was in Afghanistan in a Humvee and a sandstorm came. And it tipped the Humvee and it took a wrong turn off the road and went off a cliff,":Jay said.

At the Good Grief Camp, inside the Crystal City Marriott, Jay is not alone in his grief.

Ori Efraim Bar also lost her father. He died in combat in Israel in 2002.

":Everyone is like me and I don't feel different,": said Ori Efraim Bar, an Israeli girl. ":I think he is a hero.":

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and the Israeli Defense Forces Widows and Orphans Organization bring the children together.

Camp mentors bring support and guidance.

Ten children from the U.S. and 34 children from Israel came for this week's summer camp in Washington.

They will visit historic sites, a military base, and have grief counseling sessions together.

":They are able to find someone who speaks a different language, who is coming from a different culture, but can still understand exactly what they are going through,": said Shlomi Nahumson, IDFWO Director of Youth Programs.

":It's so heartwarming just to know that this horrible thing that happened in their life, brings them together,": said Diana Wright, TAPS Youth Program Coordinator.

Together these children wrote messages of hope and peace which will placed at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

No matter the language, they all want the same thing.

":I am usually a shy one at school but these people make me act like I can be normal,": said Jay Stoddard.

This is the second year that the two organizations have teamed up. All children were able to attend for free through the help of donations.

Also, a group of U.S. children visited Israel in the spring.

Both organizations say they expect to work together in the future.
