?Washington Business Report? ? April 26, 2015

ABC 7 WJLA Business - Rebecca Cooper, Bruce DePuyt - Sun, 26 Apr 2015 11:01:35 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) &ndash: On this week&rsquo:s edition of &ldquo:Washington Business Report&rdquo: with ABC 7 News National Correspondent Rebecca Cooper:

One-on-one with HonesTea Co-founder and CEO Seth Goldman

For this week&rsquo:s One-On-One, Cooper caught up with Seth Goldman, co-founder and TeaEO of HonestTea. Goldman spoke about the birth of HonestTea, and how the company does business and remains Washington-based.

Honest beginnings:

&bull: A beverage-based case study during a course at the Yale School of Management and the lack of a satisfying post-run drink inspired the inception of HonestTea.

&bull: Goldman believes in putting things he cares about into action.

&bull: He saw an opportunity with HonestTea to not just create a satisfying drink, but also to make changes in international agriculture systems, labor standards and people&rsquo:s diets.

Impact:

&bull: HonestTea acquires tea leaves from tea gardens in China and India.

&bull: Its tea is Fair Trade Certified, which fights poverty by paying a premium to communities where the ingredients are found.

&bull: Being Fair Trade Certified benefits growing communities by creating jobs, raising economic standards and improving work conditions.

Business in Washington:

&bull: Initial investors suggested Goldman set up a P.O. box in New Hampshire instead of keeping a Bethesda, Md. address, as it may seem more appropriate for a tea company.

&bull: Goldman objected, contesting that there was no reason Bethesda&mdash:one of the most educated cities in the country&mdash:could not be an advocate for health.

Washington Business Hall of Fame

Goldman is one of this year&rsquo:s inductees to the Washington Business Hall of Fame. Junior Achievement of Greater Washington, the Greater Washington Board of Trade and Washingtonian magazine sponsor the initiative. JA EVP and COO Amy Marcenaro stopped by to tell us more about the ceremony and this year&rsquo:s laureates.

2015 Washington Business Hall of Fame laureates:

&bull: Seth Goldman&mdash:Co-founder and TeoEO, Honest Tea

&bull: Sheila C. Johnson&mdash:CEO, Salamander Hotels and Resorts

&bull: Joe Rigby&mdash:Chairman, president and CEO, Pepco Holdings, Inc.

&bull: John Toups&mdash:Planning Research Corporation (retired)

&bull: J. Scott Wilfong&mdash:Chairman and CEO, SunTrust Bank, Greater Washington/Maryland

While the selection process is confidential, Marcenaro says the committee seeks to honor those in the local business community whose contributions will benefit the next class of leaders.

Round table: Comcast/Time Warner merger &: more

Fill-in host Bruce DePuyt welcomed Jim Dinegar, president and CEO of the Greater Washington Board and Richard Levick, chairman and CEO of LEVICK, to the round table. The trio discussed the death of the Comcast and Time Warner merger idea, Carly Fiorina&rsquo:s presidential candidacy, and the Department of Homeland Security's opening of an office in Silicon Valley.

Comcast deal:

&bull: Comcast withdrew from the pending $45 billion merger with Time Warner Cable Friday morning.

&bull: The deal, which the FCC was planning to block, did not convince the government it would have provided any benefit to consumers.

&bull: It is likely we will not see both corporations linked to similar deals in the future, even though this one did not work out.

Fiorina:

&bull: Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is set to announce her campaign for the presidency.

&bull: While our panel does not see her as having a strong chance of winning, her position as a female Republican candidate plays an important role in the election.

Homeland Security:

&bull: The Department of Homeland Security is set to open an office in Silicon Valley.

&bull: Dinegar sees this move as a wake-up call to the Washington region.

&bull: He insists Virginia, Maryland and D.C. need to stop arguing over who the local home to cyber is and instead work together against the competition in California.

200 guests evacuated after hotel fire ignites in Alexandria

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News - Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:53:07 EST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WJLA) - Two hundred guests were evacuated after an electrical fire ignited at the Quality Inn & Suites in Alexandria early Sunday.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue officials arrived to a scene of flames in the front of the hotel at 8849 Richmond Rd.

The extent of the electrical fire forced firefighters into a "defensive" mode until Virginia Power crews arrived on scene to cut the hotel's power.

Power was cut and firefighters extinguished the blaze and reported at least 30 percent of the building was damaged.

A 50-year-old man was treated for non-life threatening injuries and there were no additional injuries reported.

Guests were evacuated and transferred to the Candlewood Suites, located directly across the street from the Quality Inn & Suites.

Islanders beat Capitals 3-1 to force Game 7

ABC 7 WJLA Sports - The Associated Press - Sat, 25 Apr 2015 19:29:44 EST

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Nikolay Kulemin scored the go-ahead goal with 9:27 left and the New York Islanders beat the Washington Capitals 3-1 on Saturday to force Game 7 in the first-round playoff series.

Islanders captain John Tavares had a goal and assist, and Nick Leddy had two assists in what could still be the franchise's final game at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Cal Clutterbuck then got the loud crowd on its feet to seal the win with an empty-net goal with 53 seconds remaining.

John Carlson scored for the Capitals, who will host the deciding game Monday night. The series winner advances to face the Presidents' Trophy-winning New York Rangers, who finished off the Pittsburgh Penguins in five games Friday night.

Jaroslav Halak made 38 saves - including 13 in the final period - and bounced back from a 5-1 loss in Game 5 on Thursday night.

Kulemin's goal came during a frantic stretch in which officials allowed the play to continue despite players from both teams tangling in front of their benches.

Tavares started the play by driving into the Capitals' zone and attempting to split two defenders. He failed to get a shot off and then was bowled over heavily in the left corner by Alex Ovechkin and Karl Alzner.

No one seemed to notice that the puck squirted to Leddy at the left boards. He then fed Kulemin, who was all alone in front. Kulemin went across the top of the crease and wrapped the puck inside the left post.

Capitals forward Jay Beagle missed on a golden opportunity to tie it with 5:33 left.

Halak stopped Troy Brouwer's initial shot, and the rebound dribbled into the slot. Beagle got to it and lifted a shot over Halak but bounced it off the crossbar. The puck landed in the crease, where Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk shoveled it under Halak to stop the play.

Tavares opened the scoring 7 minutes in. After Islanders forward Ryan Strome was checked off the puck by Brooks Orpik, Tavares followed up and drove the zone up the right wing. With Carlson backing in, Tavares took advantage by cutting into the middle a snapping a shot in.

The Islanders were called for three penalties in the opening period, and the third one cost them. Carlson tied it at 1 with 5 seconds left and Tavares in the box for slashing Evgeny Kuznetsov.

Brouwer started the play by getting a lengthy pass at the Islanders blue line, and driving to the net. Jaroslav Halak stopped Brouwer, and then shoveled the puck to his right, and directly to Ovechkin in the circle. Ovechkin fed a pass across to Carlson, who took a few steps in and snapped it through a crowd and in off Halak.

The Islanders have a 3-4 record in Game 7s. The Capitals are 3-9, and 2-7 when hosting a seventh game.

Unless the Islanders advance, the Game 6 victory will be their final game at the arena. The franchise that won consecutive Stanley Cup championships from 1980-93 and produced such stars as Mike Bossy, Denis Potvin and Billy Smith, is moving to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the start of next season.

The Islanders are leaving Long Island after 43 seasons.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on Friday said the move was long overdue because the arena was outdated, and placed the blame on local politicians for failing to approve several proposed plans for a new arena.

One fan carried a sign that read: ":This Is Home, Not Brooklyn.":

After the second period, fans inside the arena booed a commercial pitching season tickets for next season.

The Islanders and the NHL stepped up security inside and outside the arena, including having officers patrolling the surrounding parking lots on horseback.

Capitals fans complained they had their cars - bearing District of Columbia and Virginia license plates - vandalized last weekend. And even Islanders fans can't get along. A fight between two fans wearing Islanders jerseys erupted in the stands a few moments before Nicklas Backstrom scored in overtime of a 2-1 win in Game 4.

Orpik had beer spilled on him while celebrating Backstrom's winner Tuesday.

Ovechkin made a joke to CSN Washington-TV that he might consider taking a chair home as a souvenir.

It was a very chippy game that even had both captains - Tavares and Ovechkin - get tangled up and exchange shoves at center on their way to their respective benches for a line change in the first period.

Ovechkin, who is well known for his willingness to throw checks, lined up Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck along the boards that sent both players flying in the second period.

NOTES: The Islanders were minus another defenseman after Calvin de Haan was hurt during the third period of Game 5. Matt Donovan made his playoff debut stepping in for Griffin Reinhart, who struggled on Thursday. Rookie Scott Mayfield, who spent all this season in the minors, took over for de Haan. ... The Isles also sat C Anders Lee, who was replaced by Colin McDonald. ... Carlson scored just the second power-play goal of the series - both by Washington. The teams entered the game having converted just one of 22 chances.

Northern Virginia woman shares her journey to transgender

Virginia WJLA - Stephen Tschida - Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:24:16 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) &ndash: A local transgender woman cheered for Bruce Jenner in the &lsquo:70s, and is looking forward to applauding Jenner again.

Connie Rice lives in Northern Virginia. She, like many in the transgender community, believes just the conversation about Jenner&rsquo:s possible transition is positive.

Rice says, ":I hope it leads to better understanding. I hope that people realize that this can happen to someone: this is a condition.&rdquo:

Psychologist Michael Hendricks says the suicide rate is the highest among transgender individuals than any other group. He also believes Jenner can provide a positive example to those grappling with gender dysphoria.

Meanwhile, Rice just hopes by thrusting this topic into the spotlight the discussion leads to more understanding and, ultimately, acceptance. Rice says she is just a person. She has three sons. She and her wife are still married, living together and raising their youngest child. But Rice says now she and her wife are best friends.

She says despite the pain of concealing her true identity for years and the difficulties of transitioning, she finally is at peace and happy.

5 Transgender myths:

- Sexual orientation is not related to transgender. Many men who transition to women remain in sexual relationships with their wives or pursue other relationships with women.

- Transgender is not a mental illness. It is part of the normal spectrum of human sexual behavior.

- It is not a choice.

- Female hormones will not raise pitch of voice.

- Transgender women are not drag queens. Drag queens are men who dress up as women for entertainment or for fun.

?Gender identity? could be added to FCPS non-discrimination policy

ABC 7 WJLA Education - Jeff Goldberg - Fri, 24 Apr 2015 21:39:44 EST

FAIRFAX, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: The Fairfax County School Board is taking steps to move forward with a policy change that will likely be cheered by transgender individuals, but is facing some strong opposition from those who call the potential change harmful to students.

The board is considering adding the words &ldquo:gender identity&rdquo: to its non-discrimination policy. The move follows a decision last month by Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring to allow school boards to include sexual orientation and gender identity in policies protecting students and teachers, including transgender individuals. The board already voted last year to include sexual orientation. This would be the next step.

&ldquo:We want to make sure people feel safe and secure when they are in our schools,&rdquo: said Fairfax School Board Chair Tamara Derenak Kaufax, who believes the idea is gaining momentum. &ldquo:Right now, we&rsquo:re hearing from both sides, but we&rsquo:re hearing a lot of support.&rdquo:

On Thursday night, the board also heard opposition. Andrea Lafferty, a parent who serves as president of the Traditional Values Coalition, worries about problems related to bathrooms at schools.

&ldquo:No law requires public schools, including Fairfax, to allow boys in girls&rsquo: bathrooms or girls into boys&rsquo: bathrooms. Providing such access is a safety issue. It endangers children and violates the rights of both students and parents,&rdquo: she said.

But Steve Hinkley of Alexandria, a middle school parent, is urging Fairfax to move forward.

&ldquo:I think it&rsquo:s great that they would take a lead and show the rest of the nation that everybody should be treated equally,&rdquo: he said.

If this measure is adopted, the county would bring in a consultant to ensure that it&rsquo:s implemented correctly. A vote on the issue is set for May 7.
