D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier plans to stay on to serve under new mayor

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - Skip Wood - Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:23:23 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Well, so much for that.

The lead story on Monday in the Washington Post&rsquo:s Metro section was adorned with the following headline:

&ldquo:Will police chief serve a third mayor?&rdquo:

Here&rsquo:s the short answer, courtesy of Tuesday&rsquo:s NewsTalk on NewsChannel 8.

Yes.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier wasn&rsquo:t asked that specific question by guest host Jennifer Donelan but nonetheless showed her cards deep into the one-hour program when asked about cops and cameras and the implementation process.

&ldquo:The ability to download, store, edit and manage video systems is a big investment for police departments,&rdquo: she said, &ldquo:and for a department our size, it&rsquo:s probably going to take me three years, two to three years, to roll the whole system out so I have everybody (with efficient cameras).&rdquo:

So there you have it.

Heavily favored D.C. mayoral candidate Muriel Bowser is on record as saying she wants Lanier to stay put.

So if the polls are correct and Bowser fends off challengers David Catania and Carol Schwartz, the District is looking at a chief whose reign will span more than a decade.

Chronic stress may cause premature death, new study says

ABC 7 WJLA Health - Greta Kreuz - Fri, 26 Sep 2014 21:30:23 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) – A new study says taking the meaning of the phrase “Don’t sweat the small stuff” to heart could benefit your health.

The most stressed-out people have the highest risk of premature death, according to a study that followed some 1,300 men for years.

It’s not just major life stresses, like divorce or job loss, that can kill you; it’s also how you react to everyday stresses, like traffic jams. The study, set to be published in the journal “Experimental Gerontology,” found that people who perceive their daily lives to be over-the-top stressful were three times more likely to die early than people who rolled with the punches.

Chronic stress increases levels of the hormone cortisol, which, in turn, affects memory, lowers immunity and raises blood pressure.

Experts say just 30 minutes of exercise a day will relieve stress. Meditation is also recommended.

Long list of new restaurants and shops coming to Reagan, Dulles airports

ABC 7 WJLA Business - - Wed, 24 Sep 2014 16:44:10 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - More than 20 new restaurants are slated to open Reagan National and Dulles International airports by summer of 2015, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said Wednesday.

Nearly 60 new stores and restaurants are already open or under construction, as part of MWAA's plan to overhaul all of the food, beverage and retail offerings at Washington's two biggest airports.

The new offerings, featuring expanded dining and shopping at both Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport, are headlined by the addition of well-known local restaurants and the complete redesign of post-security food courts near the gates in Reagan National’s Terminals B and C, providing "a more cohesive, integrated space with upgraded seating and power outlets for travelers," MWAA said in a press release.

Some of the more high-profile businesses that have recently moved into the two airports include Ben’s Chili Bowl, Legal Sea Foods, Lacoste and Spanx to Reagan National; and Burberry, Estee Lauder/M.A.C., Chef Geoff’s and Bar Symon to Dulles International.

MWAA officials said work to bring powerhouse retailers like Michael Kors, L’Occitane, Coach and Burberry is ongoing, and new additions like Vineyard Vines clothier will join remodeled shops like Solstice Sunglasses and InMotion Entertainment to enhance the growing list of shopping options. Bracket Room, an upscale sports lounge originally founded in Arlington in 2012, Potbelly Sandwich Works, and American Tap Room will provide additional dining choices for passengers soon.

The new of wave of redevelopment at Reagan National will bring even more dining options from local and nationally recognized chefs, officials added. Celebrated chef Mike Isabella will open Kapnos Taverna, a local D.C. concept serving Mediterranean and Greek favorites. Isabella’s restaurant will be joined by local favorites El Centro D.F., featuring traditional Mexican comfort fare from chef Richard Sandoval; Lebanese Taverna Café, which is celebrating 35 years serving authentic Middle Eastern cuisine in the greater D.C. area; Cava Grill, a D.C. original featuring Mediterranean and Greek-inspired fast-casual fare; and Reagan National’s own location of Bracket Room, an Arlington, Virginia-based sports bar and grill.

In addition to the enhanced dining, Reagan National’s food courts in Terminals B and C will get a significant overhaul. The middle of each grouping of gates, which currently include small cart-based retail and food options, will be completely redesigned into integrated dining, shopping and quick-bite venues. The new venues, similar to the larger redevelopment underway in Terminal A of Reagan National, "will enhance the flow and cohesiveness of the gate area, while providing upgraded seating and recharging options for travelers," officials reiterated.

Washington Capitals unveil new Winter Classic uniform

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - ABC 7 News - Tue, 23 Sep 2014 14:31:46 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals unveiled their uniform for the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic Tuesday at Nationals Park.

The team is calling the uniform's design "a tribute to the franchise's past and the history of Washington professional hockey."

“We wanted to create a uniform that not only celebrates the history of the Capitals but also gives the team a unique, new look,” said Capitals President Dick Patrick. “We feel our fans will really embrace this uniform.”

The 2015 Capitals NHL Winter Classic jersey includes many elements from Capitals jerseys worn during the past five decades. For example, the “Capitals” wordmark on the front of the jersey has been a hallmark of Caps jerseys throughout the past four decades, even through several redesigns. The stars on the front are also an element seen on many Capitals jerseys through the years, including the Capitals' current jersey.

The primary color for the Capitals’ NHL Winter Classic uniform is vintage deep red to symbolize hockey’s deep roots in Washington, the team said. The stripes on the shoulders, waist and legs bring in elements of Washington professional hockey jerseys from the 1930s, predating the Capitals’ formation in the 1970s.

A large “W” on the front of the jersey is offset in blue to contrast the white Capitals wordmark and features a silhouette of the Washington Monument, offering a unique look never seen before on Capitals jersey in franchise history, the team said in a press release.

Capitals NHL Winter Classic jerseys will be available for sale to the public in mid-November, but fans will be able to pre-order the jerseys on MonumentalNetworkShop.com beginning on Oct. 3.

Shop.NHL.com, the official online store of the NHL operated by e-commerce provider Fanatics, will take pre-orders for Capitals NHL Winter Classic jerseys starting Tuesday.

The 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic will take place New Year’s Day at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The 2015 game will mark the seventh NHL Winter Classic, an annual game that Forbes magazine called the best new sporting event of the last decade. It will mark the second time in history the Capitals will play an outdoor game.

Washington defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in front of 68,111 fans at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Jan. 1, 2011.

See more photos of the new uniform online.

On NewsTalk, momentum for Gray on new gun laws can't get traction

ABC 7 WJLA DC News - Skip Wood - Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:33:53 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Vince Gray can&rsquo:t catch a break.

The embattled D.C. mayor &ndash: appearing Tuesday on News Channel 8&rsquo:s NewsTalk -- was discussing gun regulations in the District, how he&rsquo:s dealing with a federal judge&rsquo:s ruling that the city&rsquo:s concealed-gun ban is a constitutional no-no, and then delivered a would-be zinger.

&ldquo:We don&rsquo:t want any gunfights at the O.K. Corral,&rdquo: he said, referring both to an 1881 gun fight in the then-sketchily-charted West as well as potential confrontations at D.C. spirit establishments.

Wow. Cool. Care to elaborate?

You&rsquo:re on a roll, baby.

Alas, that&rsquo:s when so-called breaking news happened.

That&rsquo:s when the show suddenly shifted to President Barack Obama&rsquo:s brief remarks about the U.S. cruise-missile strikes in Syria.

Mayor Gray, of course, went dark for a few minutes.

And when he returned, having watched Obama speak about a pressing international crisis, he dutifully &ndash: with prompting by host Bruce DePuyt -- turned to D.C. schools and boundary issues that cloud who gets to go where.

He said he wants &ldquo:high quality schools in every neighborhood. . . no matter where you live, you&rsquo:ll be able to go to a great school.&rdquo:

No bullets there.

Just talking points.

He wasn&rsquo:t asked about the federal investigation of his 2010 mayoral campaign, which had led to several criminal convictions.

But he did say he has no official preference for the next D.C. mayor, and that he&rsquo:s rooting for the Nationals in the MLB playoffs and hopes a proposed soccer stadium comes to pass.

And there you have it.

Had only he been able to continue his shoot-&lsquo:em-up roll.

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.
