Unconditional Love not Unconditional Surrender

We are a nation fond of building stone monuments to the past, and the past we are most quick to memorialize is our history of war. An index of major US monuments reads like a catalogue of conquest.

Decorated WWII veteran's remains recovered, buried at Arlington National Cemetery

Virginia WJLA - Jay Korff - Thu, 21 May 2015 20:46:04 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- There was a burial Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery, with full honors, that some feared would never happen. In fact, 78-year-old Jerry Hoblit had to wait 63 years to finally say goodbye to his father.

&ldquo:Yes, it means everything to me and everything to my father,&rdquo: Hoblit said.

Colonel Noel Hoblit, a decorated World War II veteran, was an Air Force dental surgeon in the early 1950s. He was also a hero to his sons, Jerry and Fred.

In 1952, Colonel Hoblit was aboard a C-124 Globemaster traveling from Washington State to Anchorage, Alaska. The military transport aircraft encountered rough weather. The plane slammed into a mountainside east of Anchorage at full cruising speed. All 52 aboard were killed.

An ensuing avalanche of snow and rocks entombed the wreckage for 60 years. It was believed this would be their final resting place.

The Hoblit boys, so affected by their father&rsquo:s death, dedicated their adult lives to military service.

In fact, Jerry Hoblit was awarded the Air Force Cross for heroism in the Vietnam War. The only higher honor is the Medal of Honor.

&ldquo:I was a professional military aviator. That&rsquo:s a dangerous profession,&rdquo: said Hoblit.

In 2012, Army Guardsmen on a training mission discovered the plane&rsquo:s wreckage on Colony Glacier, miles from the original crash site. Just last June Colonel Hoblit&rsquo:s remains along with those of 16 others were identified and returned to their respective families.

&ldquo:And when I heard that I thought wonderful. Now we can show the whole world what my dad meant to me, &ldquo:said Hoblit.

So Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery Jerry Hoblit and his family witnessed what should have been, so long ago: the interment of Colonel Noel Hoblit with full honors.

&ldquo:Everybody is there honoring my father and honoring their country. That&rsquo:s what that was about today,&rdquo: said Hoblit.

Arlington community enraged over new firearm shop opening in Cherrydale

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Jay Korff - Thu, 21 May 2015 00:06:46 EST

MCLEAN, Va. (WJLA) -- An Arlington strip mall off Lee Highway in the Cherrydale community has everything from restaurants to salons to a frame shop.

What's going into an empty storefront formally occupied by Curves has this normally quiet neighborhood abuzz. McLean-based Nova Firearms has announced it's opening a new store in that empty space this summer.

Building owner Kostas Kapasouris says, ":They want to have exclusive, expensive sporting goods and I guess that probably includes expensive guns.":

Kapasouris confirms a lease has been signed but he insists the community is overwhelmingly opposed to a gun shop being here. He tells ABC 7 News he's trying to figure out if he can legally break the lease.

Kapasouris says, ":The community is very upset and I don't want the community to be upset.":

Rachel Lustig grew up just blocks from here. ":I just think in a place like Arlington which is very strict with everything they are going to have a gun shop? It just doesn't seem right to me,": said Lustig.

But Jan Greenberg, who shops here often, has no problem with a gun store coming here.

&ldquo:As long as they are doing it legally and taking all the necessary precautions, ":said Greenberg.

In a prepared statement, Nova Firearms owner James Gates said the store will sell firearms to law enforcement and civilians and will also offer gun safety classes.

Gates told ABC7 News that despite community concerns, he is not worried about being able to open the store by this summer.

MCPS fails to find new superintendent, asks interim leader to stay on

ABC 7 WJLA Education - Kevin Lewis - Thu, 21 May 2015 00:39:46 EST

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WJLA) &ndash: The Montgomery Board of Education has tapped interim school superintendent Larry Bowers to lead the school district of roughly 154,000 students for the 2015-16 school year.

Bowers, a 37-year veteran of MCPS, assumed superintendent duties in mid-February after now ex-superintendent Joshua Starr was forced out.

Within a week of announcing Starr&rsquo:s exit, MCPS paid an outside firm $35,000 to conduct a nationwide search for his replacement. The goal was to have a new superintendent in place by July 1. That will not happen.

Earlier this month, MCPS&rsquo: Board of Education announced it favored Andrew Houlihan, current chief academic officer of the Houston Independent School District. However, in what can only be described as a surprising twist (and disappointment to many), Houlihan withdrew his candidacy last week, a decision MCPS announced Sunday in a written statement.

With no &ldquo:Plan B&rdquo: in place, MCPS essentially begged Bowers to postpone his retirement for 365 days --- providing the BOE with ample time to find the most qualified successor.

On Wednesday, Bowers was greeted with a standing ovation before he formally accepted the offer to remain at the helm. Family vacations and a knee replacement will be postponed, but Bowers says it&rsquo:s a small sacrifice to keep Maryland&rsquo:s largest school district on track.

However, Rosanne Hurwitz, a member of the Parents&rsquo: Coalition of Montgomery County says, a temporary leader is less than ideal. In Hurwitz&rsquo:s opinion, short-term employees, even school superintendents, often fail to fully commit to the job at hand.

&ldquo:There is no reason MCPS should be in this situation. It&rsquo:s had four months to find a replacement. We don&rsquo:t want a, &lsquo:we can&rsquo:t&rsquo: attitude. We want an, &lsquo:I can&rsquo: attitude,&rdquo: Hurwitz remarked.

In a case of ironic timing, Arlington, Va. based Phi Delta Kappa International just announced it has hired Starr to lead its organization. The education association described MCPS&rsquo: former leader as &ldquo:innovative and nimble.&rdquo: Starr, whose three children are still enrolled in the MCPS system, will begin his new job on June 8.

I-66 widening project may lead Va. officials to explore options beyond private financing

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press, ABC 7 News, Stephen Tschida - Tue, 19 May 2015 20:04:53 EST

VIENNA, Va. (AP) - Virginia may rely less on private financing as it embarks on its next massive transportation project: adding express toll lanes on Interstate 66 outside the Capital Beltway, Secretary of Transportation Aubrey Layne said Tuesday.

Layne told the Commonwealth Transportation Board that Virginia might save as much as $1 billion on the $2.1 billion project over the next 40 years by keeping the project under state control rather than doing a public-private partnership.

The savings would come by reducing some of the upfront costs and by capturing toll revenue that would otherwise be lost if the state entered a public-private partnership.

Such partnerships have become the default method for Virginia to undertake major road projects, like adding express lanes to the Capital Beltway and I-95. On those projects, the private sector paid for much of the construction and gets to keep the toll revenue in return.

Express lane projects typically have variable tolls, with rates going up when traffic is bad. Carpools of three or more are exempt from the tolls.

Layne said the state needs to make sure any future public-private partnerships are a good deal for taxpayers.

Layne was careful to emphasize that he is still open to public-private partnerships, but wants to enter them only when they make financial sense.

In the past, he said, he believes that an ideological or philosophical preference for turning work over to the private sector may have obscured whether the partnerships were truly a good deal. He said that while the partnerships are designed to reduce financial risk to the state, that hasn't always happened. A public-private partnership in southeast Virginia to expand U.S. 460 left the state on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars in upfront costs when environmental permits couldn't be obtained.

Layne said he does not believe that would have happened if the state had done the project on its own.

He said each project should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and acknowledged it can be hard to know what's a good deal because it's difficult to project how much toll revenue a project will generate.

Layne also said the state can do a better job of ensuring that expansion projects accommodate mass transit if the work is kept in house and not farmed out to the private sector.

The plans for I-66 call for adding two express lanes in each direction on a 25-mile stretch from U.S. 15 in Haymarket to the Capital Beltway, with construction to begin in 2017. There are also plans to convert lanes inside the Capital Beltway to express lanes, but that project faces challenges from Arlington County, which has long opposed any expansion of the highway inside the Beltway.

Arlington County Board approves parking meter increase to reduce congestion in Arlington

Virginia WJLA - Jeff Goldberg, ABC 7 News - Mon, 18 May 2015 18:57:35 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) - The Arlington County Board voted this weekend to increase parking rates from a $1.25 to $ 1.50 an hour in Arlington to help reduce parking congestion.

Board chair Mary Hynes said the increase will bring in nearly $1 million in 2016 to Arlington County's general fund. She added that the parking hike is the first in more than four years which brings Arlington County more in-line with neighboring jurisdictions and will encourage drivers to ditch the street and head for parking garages.

But some business owners like Joe Corey said it sends the wrong message. Corey owns Faccia Luna, an Italian restaurant in Clarendon. It still tells people we want more money from you to come here and eat," said Corey. "It shouldn't be this way, it's unwelcoming"

Conversely, drivers like Brigette Perry said the slightly larger parking investment is well worth the return. Overall, people like to do business in Arlington and they're going to pay a quarter more to park here."

The parking increase will take effect in September 2015. During that month, the board will consider extending the times in which it charges for parking from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Parking at Pentagon City Costco gets worse due to new constructon project

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Mike Conneen - Thu, 14 May 2015 22:30:32 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- Almost any driver in Arlington will tell you, parking at one particular location in Pentagon City is a problem. And it just got worse due to a new construction project.

Shoppers at the local Costco now have about half as many parking options in an already congested area.

Since Monday, parking attendants have been guiding cars into and around the Costco parking lot. Row after row of parking &ndash: nearly half the lot &ndash: was fenced off this week.

Construction crews will soon start building a seven story garage that will feature hundreds of parking spaces, part of a long-term plan by Kimco to redevelop Pentagon Centre with new residential, office and retail buildings.

Decades from now, even the Costco will disappear. And until then, construction around it will result in more changes and congestion for shoppers.

&ldquo:It's awful. They need to do something about the parking lot if they want the business,&rdquo: said Ether Stephenson.

Many drivers complain the lot and the overflow onto nearby streets was a problem long before this construction. They say weekday evenings and weekends are the worst time to visit.

&ldquo:Don't ever come on a weekend. You want to come on an off-peak time,&rdquo: said Vickie Lucas.

There is already a nearby garage and street parking, but when buying in bulk, shoppers say they prefer to park as close as possible. And that's why many are still willing to deal with all the traffic and frustration.

&ldquo:They want the 80 rolls of toilet paper but they'll be sitting there, driving around in circles trying to find somewhere to park,&rdquo: driver Bert Holt said.

Metro train service restored on 3 lines after reports of smoke in the tunnel

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press, ABC 7 News - Mon, 11 May 2015 08:35:40 EST

WASHINGTON (AP/WJLA) - Metro has restored train service on the orange, blue and silver lines between Foggy Bottom in Washington and Rosslyn in northern Virginia after a report of smoke.

Metro says riders can expect delays in both directions. Trains are currently single tracking between Arlington Cemetery and Clarendon and Clarendon and Foggy Bottom.

Shuttle buses are still being used for the time being.

Service was suspended after 8 a.m. Monday during the morning rush and caused significant delays for commuters on the orange, blue and silver lines. The transit agency brought in shuttle buses for hundreds of commuters stranded at the affected stations.

Metro blames an insulator along the third rail that may have been giving off smoke. Spokesman Dan Stessel says Metro workers are fixing the problem.

Fire department spokesman Timothy Wilson says smoke dissipated while firefighters were at the Foggy Bottom station. On the Virginia side of the Potomac River, Lt. Sarah Marchegiani with the Arlington County Fire Department says firefighters at the Rosslyn station only found an odor.

Riders are encouraged to use the Yellow line as an option to travel into D.C. from Virginia or seek other methods of transportation. Though shuttle buses are being used, Stessel warned that the number of buses may not be enough to accommodate the amount of passengers currently awaiting trains.

Earlier this morning, Blue and Silver line trains were single tracking between Addison Road and Stadium Armory due to an arcing insulator. Stessel said the issue was more of a maintenance problem and is unrelated to the current issue at Rosslyn.

Blue/Silver line train service between the Capital Heights and Addison Road Stations reopened just after 9 a.m.

Yorktown High School in Arlington evacuated after chemical spill

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News - Mon, 11 May 2015 10:00:07 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) - A high school in Arlington was evacuated early Monday morning after a teacher spilled a chemical inside of a room.

The Arlington County Fire Department responded to a call around 7:43 a.m. for a hazmat issue at Yorktown High School. A teacher spilled a 1500 mL bottle of hydrochloric acid inside one of the laboratory classrooms, according to a spokesperson for the department.

It is unclear how much acid was in the container, but the spill affected a 3x4 area in the room. There were no injuries.

The first floor of the school was evacuated. Air testing by firefighters showed additional levels of the school were clear.

Firefighters have neutralized the acid and are waiting for a contracting company to clean up the spill.

McAuliffe: Texas Guard mobilization 'one of the dumbest things I've ever heard'

ABC 7 WJLA News - NewsChannel 8, Bruce DePuyt - Thu, 07 May 2015 14:18:47 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- Add Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffes name to the list of those baffled by whats going on in Texas right now.

During an appearance on NewsChannel 8 Thursday, the Democrat McAuliffe called Texas Gov. Greg Abbotts decision to have the Texas State Guard conduct surveillance on a Pentagon training exercise one of the dumbest things Ive ever heard.

At issue is a multi-state training operation set for this summer called Jade Helm 15, which, according to CNN, is a U.S. Special Operations training that will take part in desert southwest. The operation is being conducted in areas that have terrain similar to what troops find overseas. The troops involved in Jade Helm a mix of Army Green Berets, Navy SEALS and Air Force special operations troops as well as conventional Army infantry will number approximately 1,200, CNN reports. The military concedes the size of the training is unusual, saying "the size and scope of Jade Helm sets this one apart."

Military commanders have held town hall meetings to calm public fear, but some remain convinced something dark is happening. As the New York Times observed dryly, The questions being raised by right-wing bloggers and conservative commentators about a Pentagon training exercise called Jade Helm 15 traverse the outer edges of political paranoia.

Wal-Mart felt compelled to put out a statement denying rumors that the military plans to build tunnels to shuttered stores as part of a U.S. takeover of Texas.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Abbott, a Republican, has drawn bipartisan criticism for his decision to deploy the Guard.

On NewsChannel 8's NewsTalk with Bruce DePuyt, McAuliffe seized on the news: This is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. We love the military. If Texas companies are watching.. and saying what a waste of resources come to Virginia.

ABC7 gets tests showing 'concern level red' for formaldehyde in some Lumber Liquidators flooring

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Joce Sterman - Wed, 06 May 2015 21:58:40 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- With testing results delayed for customers of Lumber Liquidators, the 7 On Your Side I-Team is digging for its own answers about formaldehyde levels in the company&rsquo:s products. The Virginia-based corporation has come under fire in recent months after a 60 Minutes report exposed allegations its laminate flooring contains dangerous levels of formaldehyde. But with customers waiting on information from the company, we decided to take matters into our own hands, sending samples out to an accredited lab for testing. And what the I-Team found has one local family talking about whether they should rip out their flooring immediately.

David and Sandy Hickin are tired of waiting. The Lusby, Maryland couple has waited now 49 days for the results of samples they sent away for testing after they say they experienced health problems following the installation of Lumber Liquidators laminate flooring in January.

&ldquo:We still don't have the results,&rdquo: David Hickin said, &ldquo:Until we have something tangible in the way of evidence, it's difficult to put it all together.&rdquo:

The Hickins are trying to piece together whether their flooring is making them sick. Shortly after installation, Sandy Hickin says she began having consistent rashes which required steroids. David Hickin said he had breathing issues. After complaining to Lumber Liquidators, the company sent them a kit to test their air. But nearly two months later, they're caught up in what the Florida testing company handling the work calls a back log.

Lumber Liquidators says those kits were offered to thousands of customers in what it believes is the largest home air testing programs ever conducted in the country. But the large volume has been problematic, causing delays like the one the Hickins have experienced. The company tells 7 On Your Side its testing firm had to put a new data management process in place to deal with high volumes. But now they believe results will begin going out under a normal schedule in the next 5-10 days. That&rsquo:s little relief to Sandy Hickin, who says, &ldquo:Nobody really has the answers to what we should do.&rdquo:

But 7 On Your Side is getting answers. We sent two samples of the family&rsquo:s flooring to EMSL Analytical, an accredited lab in New Jersey. The results provided to the I-Team indicate both packaged and installed pieces of the Hickin&rsquo:s laminate had what the testing firm labeled concern level red, saying formaldehyde in the laminate is a &ldquo:probable contributor to indoor air levels&rdquo:. Lumber Liquidators wouldn&rsquo:t comment on the testing, saying it couldn&rsquo:t verify the result or the method used.

&ldquo:It's a scary feeling,&rdquo: Sandy Hickin said.

Summer Drake, a Purcellville, Virginia resident, understands the fear. She ripped up bamboo flooring she purchased from Lumber Liquidators after having an independent firm test the air in the bedroom shared her six-month old baby girl. Those results came back with what the testing company called ":elevated": formaldehyde levels.

&ldquo:We can't take a chance,&rdquo: Drake told ABC7, &ldquo:We were sleeping with the windows open.&rdquo:

When Drake asked Lumber Liquidators for a refund, she got a typo-filled email and a denial. The message she received called her testing &ldquo:irrelevant&rdquo: and &ldquo:with no true indicator of elevated levels&rdquo:. Lumber Liquidators told 7 On Your Side Drake&rsquo:s result is below the guideline set by the World Health Organization and that while bamboo products are not regulated by any emissions standard, the company has strict formaldehyde emission specifications for its bamboo products. A representative said the company cares deeply about its customers and regrets that the informative nature of the email to Drake was interpreted as indifference.
