7 On Your Side: Md. Gold?s Gym employees worried about losing child care

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Joce Sterman - Fri, 12 Sep 2014 22:06:05 EST

COLUMBIA, Md. (WJLA) – Fitness instructors at Gold’s Gym locations in Maryland are fighting back after they were told the child care many depend on while they teach classes would disappear.

ABC 7 News started asking questions after hearing from mothers who also work as trainers and instructors at corporate-owned Gold’s Gym locations throughout Maryland. They were told a change in law would erase their perk, but ABC 7 News found that’s not the case.

Melanie Hagner’s full-time clients—her children—need a little more motivation for their workouts than her usual class, but that’s what happens when you’re balancing life as a stay-at-home mom and fitness trainer.

“I’ve always said it’s the perfect mom job,” she said.

For years Hagner has worked at Gold’s Gyms across the country, leaving her kids with the club’s trusted day care during class. It’s a free perk Gold’s says it has long offered as a family-friendly company.

“I teach four, five classes a week,” Hagner said. “It’s not really enough to pay for a babysitter, so we heavily rely on it.”

But the gym day care option could soon be gone, not just for Hagner, but for any fitness instructor at corporate-owned Gold’s locations throughout the state, including one in Rockville. A memo obtained by ABC 7 News from Gold’s leadership says a change in state law means as of Oct. 1, associates can no longer use the Kids Club.

“I felt helpless, like I’ve got to figure out what I’m going to do,” Hagner said. “At the time, my husband wasn’t here and we just bought our house, so, I don’t have any other options. There are no other options.”

But there may be now, after the 7 On Your Side team started asking questions and contacted the Maryland State Department of Education, which oversees child care. The department said there has been no change in law concerning gyms, but a change in a definition may be what is causing a misinterpretation. After pointing that out to Gold’s, a company representative now says it is waiting for clarification.

Hagner is hoping it comes before that Oct. 1 deadline. Working out with her kids is fun, but she’s holding out hope she’ll be able to keep working at the gym she loves.

“I’m just gonna keep teaching and I’m just gonna keep doing what I’m doing, and hope that something happens,” she said.

Gold’s Gym told ABC 7 News it had to re-evaluate and make a change to its policy after an incident at one of its locations in Fairfax Station. A company representative says it erred on the side of caution and has contacted the Maryland Office of Child Care to get clarification.

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.

Karen Garza, Fairfax County Public Schools superintendent, to present new plan for later school start times

ABC 7 WJLA Education - Suzanne Kennedy, ABC 7 News - Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:57:11 EST

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WJLA) – Fairfax County Public Schools Superintendent Karen Garza will present a proposal to implement later high school start times at a School Board meeting on Monday.

Garza’s proposal would have high school students beginning school no earlier than 8 a.m.  Under the same proposal, middle school students would begin school at 7:30 a.m. The elementary schools would not be affected.

The proposal is the latest in the county’s discussion on later start times, which started more than a decade ago and has picked up even more support in recent years.

A recent study by the Children’s National Medical Center showed teenagers should get more sleep in order to improve their mental health and boost their academic achievement. The school district also held community meetings earlier this summer to gather community feedback about the possibility of later school start times.

The board will vote on Garza’s proposal in late October. Any approved changes could go into effect as soon as next school year.

Severe thunderstorms trigger power outages, flooding in D.C. area

Weather DC WJLA 7 - Robert Lyles, ABC 7 News - Sun, 07 Sep 2014 04:49:49 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) -- A powerful cold front pushed through the D.C. region Saturday night, bringing severe thunderstorms with damaging wind and heavy rain.

 :

Thousands of people were without power after the strong storms ripped through the area, but local power companies worked swiftly to restore power to most by early Sunday morning.

The storms also prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flood warning Saturday night for parts of D.C., Howard, Montgomery, Prince George's, Fairfax and Arlington counties, along with the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church.

The warning was allowed to expire as the threat of further severe weather ended around midnight.

Authorities said the Potomac area of Montgomery County was particularly hard hit by power outages, downed trees and flooded roads that triggered the need for water rescues.

Gonzaga Eagles top Centreville Wildcats 31-14 on ESPNU

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - Robert Lyles - Fri, 05 Sep 2014 23:59:02 EST

CLIFTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: The Friday night lights were hotter than ever in Clifton, as the #1- and #2-ranked high school football teams in the country&mdash:Virginia&rsquo:s Centreville High School and D.C.&rsquo:s Gonzaga College High School&mdash:battled it out on national television.

But the real energy was in Clifton, where hundreds of fans watched the game in person.

It was lights, camera and kick-off at Centreville Stadium. In fact, some parents took off work, setting up RVs, pitching portable grills and dishing up enough tailgate food to feed three defensive lines.

The Centreville Wildcats had something to prove: they were state champs last season, and a win against the #2 Gonzaga Eagles could prove local domination.

The Eagles were off to a flying start, taking every effort to upset the #1 Wildcats.

The rivalry had ESPNU come to town, with 90,000 watts of overhead lights, satellite trucks and boom cameras, making this the first time a Fairfax County team has played before a national TV audience. One fan commented that the game felt like a college homecoming.

The Washington Post ranks Centreville #1 in its poll, Gonzaga #2. But for fans, this face-off was much more.

&ldquo:To have a #1 against #2, and a public versus private, they never get to play each other, which is exciting for both sides,&rdquo: one fan said.

In the end, Gonzaga topped Centreville 31-14.

Hundreds of local teachers surprised by big gift from Google

ABC 7 WJLA Education - - Thu, 04 Sep 2014 11:21:49 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Search engine giant Google surprised 276 teachers in the D.C. Metro area Thursday morning by fully funding their classroom needs through an education-based donation website.

The donations totaled roughly $232,009, according to the website DonorsChoose.org.

Similar to GoFundMe, DonorsChoose.org allows people to make contributions to education-related funding campaigns and requests. Schools or teachers can create a page on the site and ask for a specific amount of money for a specific need, such as classroom supplies, and people can donate any amount toward the cause, either by name or anonymously.

A total of 276 teachers in the D.C. area had pages on DonorChoose.org asking for monetary donations to buy classroom and school supplies, encompassing everything from exercise equipment for physical education classes to books, microscopes. computers, art supplies and more.

"We are thrilled to partner with DonorsChoose.org to support all of the classroom projects of teachers here in the Washington D.C. area. We owe a lot to our teachers and want to thank them for being a constant source of inspiration," said Jenny Backus, Google's head of policy and community partnerships.

Three-hundred and eleven projects in the local area were funded, with money going to schools in D.C., Alexandria, Arlington County, Calvert County, Charles County, Frederick County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Culpeper County, Fairfax County, Fauquier County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, Spotslyvania County, Stafford County, Warren County and Jefferson County.

"We are so humbled and grateful to Google for their devotion to our teachers and students," said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org. "This is a great day for DonorsChoose.org classrooms."

According to DonorsChoose, Google posted a message on every funded project page, letting teachers know they were part of the surprise.

In the past few months, Google has announced similar "flash funding" campaigns in the San Francisco Bay Area, Atlanta and Chicago.

In addition to their project funding initiatives, Google has also supported several DonorsChoose.org programs over the years, including the AP STEM Access program - or Advanced Placement Science, Technology, Engineering and Match - which launched over 500 new AP STEM courses at high-poverty schools nationwide.

Fairfax County working to pay for extra school time for students

ABC 7 WJLA Education - The Associated Press - Thu, 04 Sep 2014 06:53:04 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Fairfax County leaders are debating how to pay for changes in the school year calendar with the elimination of half-day Mondays for elementary students.

Fairfax schools made the change for this school year to provide more instructional time and to build in a cushion in case of inclement weather. But the additional instructional time is estimated to cost $7.6 million. The school system covered the cost this year by using leftover funds from last year.

The Washington Post reports school officials on Tuesday asked the county Board of Supervisors to fund full-day instruction on Mondays going forward. Superintendent Karen Garza says it's a good investment in children that could help improve academic achievement.

But some county supervisors object to the change being made before funding was in place.

Thousands of Montgomery County students still need proof of vaccinations

ABC 7 WJLA Health - Caroline Tucker - Tue, 02 Sep 2014 21:50:36 EST

SILVER SPRING, Md. (NewsChannel 8) - Thousands of Montgomery County schoolchildren still need to prove they've received their vaccinations.

This comes as the county confirms at least 12 students have contracted pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

School started last week, but as of the first day of classes, roughly 4,200 of 11,000 seventh graders couldn't prove they had had all the necessary shots. Those students are in danger of being excluded from school, if they don't provide proof of their vaccinations.

Inside the Montgomery County Health Center in Silver Spring, the clinic has plenty of meningococcal and TDAP vaccines. TDAP is for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis.

"We haven't had a huge rush, so we’re hoping that they do use those clinics, so that we can make sure they get vaccinated," said Cindy Edwards, senior nurse administrator for communicable diseases and epidemiology for Montgomery County Health and Human Resources.

Edwards says the vaccines are essential.

There was also a spike in pertussis in 2012. In addition to the infected students in Montgomery County, a student in Fairfax County, Va. was also recently diagnosed with whooping cough.

Efforts are underway to prevent meningitis before students head to college.

"Besides the fact that it's important for their health that they have some immunity to these diseases, it also is important that they stay in school," said Edwards.

Families will have until Sept. 15 to prove their seventh graders were vaccinated, or the students can't attend school.

One sixth-grade parent already took precautions.

"I heard about it through some other parents, but I wasn't sure if sixth graders were going to use them or not. So, I still went ahead and took her to the doctor’s and got her vaccinated for it," said Carlos Munoz.

"It's just something that maybe got put off, or it wasn't a good time for them. So, we’re now trying to follow up to make sure that they get it, because they have to have it to be in school," said Edwards.

Edwards said some students may be having difficulty proving they have been vaccinated due to lack of insurance, timing, or because the school system hasn't yet received their records.

Families can get the required vaccinations for free at one of Montgomery County's vaccination clinics through Sept. 12:

(Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) German Town Health Center 12900 Middlebrooks Road, Second Floor Germantown, Md. 20874 240-777-3380

Family of John Geer, Springfield man shot by Fairfax County police, files wrongful death lawsuit

Virginia WJLA - - Tue, 02 Sep 2014 15:23:44 EST

SPRINGFIELD, Va. (WJLA) - The family of a Springfield, Virginia man shot by police during a standoff last year has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Fairfax County Police Department.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Fairfax County Circuit Court, asks for $12 million for the wrongful death of John Geer, as well as $350,000 in punitive damages against the officers involved.

The lawsuit and claims all stem from an incident that took place on Aug. 29, 2013.

On that date, Fairfax County police responded to a reported domestic dispute in a home in the 7900 block of Pebble Brook Court. Whomever reported the incident claimed that Geer had weapons, prompting a large police response as well as SWAT teams entering the usually quiet neighborhood.

Police said they negotiated with Geer, who was standing in the doorway of the home, for about 40 minutes. Geer reportedly had his hands up, resting on the door jam above his head.

However, when Geer reportedly started lowering one of his arms, police opened fire and shot him. Rescue teams that entered the home reported that Geer was dead.

A few days after the incident, police announced that their investigation revealed that Geer had not been armed, after all.

Now, Geer's widow, Maura Harrington, is the plaintiff in the lawsuit that names the Fairfax County Police Department, Chief Ed Roessler, and three as-yet unnamed police officers who were involved in the shooting as defendants.

In the wrongful death claim, Harrington cites ":solace, mental anguish and solace:": loss of Geer's income: and funeral expenses, asking for $12 million in compensation, as well as interest dating back to Aug. 29, 2013 when the incident took place.

Harrington also requests the return of ":personal property wrongfully seized and now retained": by the police department.
