Handshake offered notable hint into Gross' emotion after Cuban release

ABC 7 WJLA Politics - Skip Wood - Thu, 18 Dec 2014 20:35:25 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: It&rsquo:s said one can read everything about someone else through a handshake.

And that was one of the more notable things Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) took away from his initial contact Wednesday with previously detained U.S. contractor Alan Gross after the latter was released by Cuba after a half decade.

The handshake.

&ldquo:He had a really strong grip &ndash: despite the fact that he&rsquo:s lost a lot of weight,&rdquo: Van Hollen said over the phone Thursday during NewsChannel 8&rsquo:s NewsTalk.

Van Hollen had long lobbied for the Maryland resident&rsquo:s release, and flew to Cuba along with Sens. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) for the official deed.

&ldquo:And when we walked into the Havana airport, &rsquo:&rsquo: he said, &ldquo:to see Alan&rsquo:s face light up. . .&rdquo:

Joy for both men.

&ldquo:You can imagine after five years of fits and starts,&rdquo: Van Hollen said, &ldquo:. . .it was a great moment.&rdquo:

He&rsquo:ll shake on that.

D.C. Mayor Gray bids farewell, talks about why he deserved a second term

ABC 7 WJLA News - Skip Wood - Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:25:00 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Vince Gray really wanted to supplant Adrian Fenty as D.C. mayor four years ago, and so he did &ndash: albeit after a campaign in which six people went on to plead guilty to various allegations of misdeeds during the race.

Gray also really wanted to remain mayor following a term marked much more by accomplishment than stagnation or worse.

But the first goal may have wound up perversely trumping the second goal. Gray was beaten by Mayor-elect Muriel Bowser in the Democratic primary after yet another federal indictment was announced with just a handful of weeks left in the campaign.

Gray believes the timing of the indictment&rsquo:s announcement may well have doomed his chances for a second term.

So he said Thursday on NewsChannel 8&rsquo:s NewsTalk when asked by host Bruce DePuyt whether things might have turned out differently had the announcement been made three weeks after the primary rather than three weeks before.

&ldquo:It is what it is at this juncture,&rdquo: Gray said. &ldquo:I think people were confused (and) they didn&rsquo:t really know what to do.&rdquo:

And as a result?

&ldquo:You look at the turnout in that primary, it was very, very low,&rdquo: Gray said. &ldquo:(But) the damage had been done.&rdquo:

Nevertheless, just as he did during his farewell address to the city Wednesday evening at Dunbar High School, Gray focused on the positives, proudly patted himself on the back for real accomplishments and fierce focus on D.C. residents.

(Gray didn&rsquo:t actually say &ldquo:D.C.&rdquo: For him, it always and forever will be &ldquo:District of Columbia.&rdquo:)

And the fact that the D.C. Council on Wednesday approved plans for an MLS soccer stadium on Buzzard Point a few blocks from Nationals Park outside Anacostia was an especially sweet parting gift for the mayor.

&ldquo:I&rsquo:m ecstatic that we&rsquo:re moving forward,&rdquo: he said, adding that had D.C. United moved to Prince George&rsquo:s County or Baltimore, &ldquo:it would have been an incredible loss to the city.

&ldquo:. . .Moreover, it will have a tremendous impact as a catalyst for development (in that part) of the city.&rdquo:

So what&rsquo:s next for the outgoing mayor, ongoing federal investigation into his role in the 2010 campaign notwithstanding? Would he consider another run, for whatever?

&ldquo:I don&rsquo:t know,&rdquo: Gray said. &ldquo:Not really thought very much about it. . .My whole life has been devoted to public service (and) I think public service is in my DNA.&rdquo:

Not so much politics, he added with a chuckle.

But it wouldn&rsquo:t be a Mayor Gray NewsTalk interview if DePuyt didn&rsquo:t ask him about the Redskins, their season doomed to yet another season of numbing dysfunction.

The subject always is embraced by Gray, and he grumbled about the soap opera-esque quarterback situation and the justified negative publicity. And on the following point, he was clear:

&ldquo:What needs to be done in the offseason is to look at this organization from the owner, through the president, the general manager, the coach (and) the players -- from top to bottom.&rdquo:

Artisphere arts center in Rosslyn likely to close next year

ABC 7 WJLA Entertainment - The Associated Press - Thu, 18 Dec 2014 06:13:53 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Arlington County Manager Barbara Donnellan says the money-losing Artisphere arts center should close next June because it has failed to break even after years of subsidies.

Members of the County Board tell The Washington Post they will likely support the recommendation. Donnellan says Artisphere hasn't drawn enough visitors or supporters to sustain itself.

The move would save about $2.5 million per year. The jobs of 12 full-time staff members and 20 part-time employees would be eliminated.

Donnellan says to continue operating, Artisphere would require substantial ongoing taxpayer support.

Artisphere has exhibited works by Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol and other lesser-known artists. Founding Director Jose Ortiz says attendance has grown 11 percent this year to 71,000 visitors. He says the center's financial stability was based on receiving ongoing county support.

Chief Lanier: Protests are straining D.C. police resources

ABC 7 WJLA DC News - Skip Wood - Tue, 16 Dec 2014 14:57:37 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. &ndash: Perhaps more so than in any other United States city, D.C. and its police department do protests.

And rallies.

And marches.

And on and on.

Call it a job requirement, and MPD officers, under the direction of Chief Cathy Lanier, more or less utilize velvet gloves and common sense as opposed to riot gear and armored tanks. This, after all, is the nation&rsquo:s capital.

But sometimes protests go too long and too far, noted Lanier, who appeared on Tuesday&rsquo:s edition of NewsTalk on NewsChannel 8.

In other words, if you&rsquo:re going to get a big group of people to lie in the middle of a busy intersection, as has been the case recently relating, in part, to the protest march of cops killing unarmed black men, do your thing and make your statement but please don&rsquo:t linger.

Because in making your stand, you&rsquo:re also harming the safety of D.C. residents nowhere near your protest. Lanier said she has to call in many extra officers to re-route traffic and make sure order is the rule.

&ldquo:It&rsquo:s pulling (cops) out of neighborhoods that need the police the most,&rdquo: she said, adding there&rsquo:s an obvious give-and-take in a city such as this one. Even so. . .

Its very, very expensive and its getting to be a big strain on my police department and its getting to be a big strain on our ability to contain and police the neighborhoods, she said.

That&rsquo:s a problem that&rsquo:s exacerbated, she added, when the usual handful of protestors aren&rsquo:t really protestors at all but rather people simply bent on wreaking havoc.

For the most part, however, the protests in D.C. have been peaceful For example, at last weekend&rsquo:s &ldquo:Justice for All&rdquo: march, Lanier went to meet some personal friends who were on hand. Officers mingled easily with the crowd.

Her take on the demonstrations?

&ldquo:Everybody has different takes on it, but I think the overall point of all the protests and the movement is that there&rsquo:s an issue with people who have lost their lives,&rdquo: she said, &ldquo:and what is the system to review that?

&ldquo:. . . &ldquo:It&rsquo:s not really a police-in-general issue, it&rsquo:s an issue about the system as a whole.&rdquo:

Arlington Celebrates Richard Thompson

Nick Galifinakis and David Apatoff had a problem. They wanted to keep meeting at the home of fellow cartoonist Richard Thompson, creator of Washington Post comic Richard’s Poor Almanac and his nationally syndicated comic Cul de Sac, to chat and to pour over his work, but were afraid that Thompson would kick them out if they didn’t come up with a good reason to stay. This was the origin of “The Art of Richard Thompson.” Though likely apocryphal, the story is indicative of the reverence and humor with which the editors compiled the collection.

McAuliffe begins push for fresh wave of gun control regulations

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press, Jeff Goldberg - Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:02:47 EST

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is pushing for new regulations on gun ownership.

The governor introduced a package of gun control measures in Arlington Monday that he said were necessary to keep Virginians safe. Among the legislation he will pursue during the 2015 legislation session is a bill that would limit handgun purchases to one a month. Another bill would prohibit people subject to protective orders from possessing firearms.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a gun control advocate, was a major donor to McAuliffe's 2013 gubernatorial campaign.

The measures will likely face strong opposition in the GOP-controlled General Assembly. A spokesman for House Speaker William J. Howell said the governor's announcement was "disappointing."

The state Department of Education says Patrick Henry Elementary in Arlington County and High Point Elementary in Washington County have been named as Virginia's two 2014-2015 National Title I Distinguished Schools.

Representatives from the schools will be recognized by the National Association of State Title I Directors during the organization's annual conference in February in Salt Lake City.

Officials say the schools were selected from the 40 high-achieving Title I schools honored by the Virginia Board of Education in October.

Patrick Henry Elementary was selected for exceeding federal annual measurable objectives for two consecutive school years. High Point Elementary was chosen for its efforts to close achievement gaps among student subgroups over two consecutive years.
