U.Va. revokes Sigma Nu, Pi Kappa Alpha charters for hazing

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Sat, 19 Apr 2014 15:30:40 EST

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia is revoking the charters of two fraternities for hazing.

According to The Daily Progress, the university announced Friday that it has terminated its organization agreements with Sigma Nu and Pi Kappa Alpha. The announcements said the incidents involved the ":new member education process,": but they did not provide specifics and U.Va. spokesman McGregor McCance declined to elaborate.

Occupants of both fraternity houses will be allowed to stay until their leases expire.

Michael Haines, president of the Pi Kappa Alpha chapter at U.Va., said the fraternity is appealing the decision.

Sigma Nu representatives declined to comment.

Established in 1868, Pi Kappa Alpha is one of just two fraternities founded at UVa. Sigma Nu was founded as an anti-hazing fraternity at the Virginia Military Institute in 1869.

Why are some Dems running from the Affordable Care Act?

WDBJ 7 National News - - Sat, 19 Apr 2014 18:29:59 GMT

The Affordable Care Act enrollment is 8 million strong and growing.

Polls have shown that voters love popular provisions calling for mandatory coverage for maternity care and extending coverage for young people up to age 26 to stay on their parents' health insurance policies. And recent figures from the Congressional Budget Office show that the Affordable Care Act will cost about $5 billion less to implement in 2014 than originally estimated.

Still, some Democrats have run from the President's signature health care reform law so fast, they've practically left skid marks.

The question is: Will they run back?

"I don't think we should apologize for it. I don't think we should be defensive about it. I think there is a strong, good, right story to tell," President Barack Obama said in a rare appearance Thursday at the daily White House news briefing.

A Democratic strategist and pollster thinks some Democrats will follow that advice.

"I think it's easier to talk about issues like equal pay or an increase in the minimum wage," said Margie Omero, president of Momentum Analysis LLC, a public opinion research firm in Washington, and a Huffington Post contributor. "Obamacare has always been less popular. ... I think we're going to see some of these impressions change. But for some members, they look at one poll number and they think maybe I should speak about something else.

Affordable Care Act a tough sell for embattled Democrats

Singing the Affordable Care Act's praises is especially tough for politically vulnerable Democrats.

So tough, in fact, that a Democratic super PAC, the House Majority PAC, is actually running ads for Reps. Joe Garcia of Florida and Ann Kirkpatrick of Arizona highlighting the lawmakers' efforts in bucking the administration on some aspects of the Affordable Care Act. The ads credit the lawmakers for "blowing the whistle" on the botched rollout of the HealthCare.gov website.

Republican groups and some wealthy donors are pouring millions of dollars into ad campaigns targeting Garcia, Kirkpatrick and other vulnerable Democrats and trying to tie the Affordable Care Act to them.

The ads then go on to credit Garcia and Kirkpatrick for supporting provisions to block insurance companies from denying coverage to patients with preexisting conditions or dropping patients when they become ill.

The ads do not, however, make clear that these popular provisions are a key part of the Affordable Care Act.

Garcia was elected in 2012 and has voted numerous times against a full Affordable Care Act repeal and for measures aimed at changing provisions in the law. Kirkpatrick voted for the Affordable Care Act in 2010, lost a re-election bid that year, and then won back her seat in 2012.

The House Majority PAC did not respond to a request for comment.

Democrats like Garcia and Kirkpatrick are trying to find artful ways to run on the Affordable Care Act, said Omero, the Democratic strategist. Those techniques include pointing out, "'Here are some things I might change or disagree with but it's starting to work' and talk about going forward how it's going to work," she said.

Treading lightly on the Affordable Care Act

To be sure, there are reasons why some Democrats feel skittish boasting about the Affordable Care Act.

From its inception, the partisan bickering over the law was acrimonious and led, in part, to the tea party-backed uprising that saw a number of Democrats unseated and control of that chamber go to Republicans. Despite a victory in 2012, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled core provisions of the law constitutional, Democrats still found themselves on the ropes as Republicans hammered them on the law's failings and voted in the House for repeal "more than 50 times," Obama pointed out Thursday.

Last November, the Obama administration struggled to recover from the rocky rollout of the health care website and explain why the President broke a promise that people who prefer their insurance could keep it under the law.

On the campaign trail, vulnerable Democrats are dogged by questions about the Affordable Care Act.

As he made his way this week through the chill and crowds at a southeastern Virginia political gathering, Sen. Mark Warner was asked several times about the health care reform law. One man wearing an NRA sticker asked: "Senator, did you read the Affordable Care Act before you voted for it?"

Warner told the man: "I've outlined a series of changes to it. Five separate bills."

And in March, when Democrat Alex Sink lost by less than 2% of the vote to Republican David Jolly in Florida's special election for the 13th Congressional District, the GOP said Sink was defeated in part by the Affordable Care Act.

"His (Jolly's) victory shows that voters are looking for representatives who will fight to end the disaster of Obamacare," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and co-chair Sharon Day said in an e-mail to reporters after the candidate's win.

It is worth pointing out, though, that the seat has been held by Republicans since the early 1980s.

'This thing is working'

The president is aware that he is partly to blame for the nervousness surrounding running on the Affordable Care Act.

"There is no doubt that our failure to roll out the ACA smoothly has put a burden on Democrats, whether they're running or not, because they stood up and supported this effort through thick and thin," Obama said at Thursday's news briefing. He added that he feels "deeply responsible for making it harder for them rather than easier for them."

But, Democratic strategists and political analysts say, it's time for that party's members to stop running from the Affordable Care Act and start proudly touting the law's successes. Failing to do so could cost the party in the long run, said Julian Zelizer, a Princeton University historian and CNN contributor.

"The party could make a collective mistake in continuing down this path," he said. "Generally, for most Democrats, they need a message from the top saying they should not be responding to Republican attacks by saying 'we agree with you.' They need to point out the numbers and say we have some successes."

The president agrees, and he said as much on Thursday: "This thing is working."

"I find it strange that the Republican position on this law is still stuck in the same place that it has always been. They still can't bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working," Obama said Thursday. "They said nobody would sign up: they were wrong about that," he continued. "They said it would be unaffordable for the country: they were wrong about that."

Public defender argues Severance is being held illegally in W. Va.

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Fri, 18 Apr 2014 19:49:47 EST

WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - A public defender in West Virginia says a northern Virginia man sought for questioning in three slayings is being held illegally.

Wheeling police arrested Charles Severance on March 13 on a warrant related to a firearms charge in Virginia's Loudoun County.

Police in Alexandria, Va., have said they want to talk to Severance about three unsolved killings. He has not been charged in the slayings.

The Intelligencer and Wheeling News Register says Severance's public defender, Shayne Welling, contends in a court filing his client is being held in West Virginia under a bogus warrant. He says the warrant from Loudoun County is a pretense to get Severance back to Virginia for questioning in Alexandria.

Welling asked a judge to direct Virginia authorities to appear before the court.

Virginia residents upset about I-66 wall reconstruction

Virginia WJLA - Jeannette Reyes - Fri, 18 Apr 2014 17:43:40 EST

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (WJLA) - Some residents here are upset about this wall being taken down, and that’s because they now must wake up to sirens and cars speeding by on I-66.

The Virginia Department of Transportation assured us that it is working on building a much taller wall, but that it will be a long while before things return to normal.

For decades, the most this Falls Church neighborhood heard during this time of day was birds chirping, dogs barking, and kids playing. Now, it's sounds of the Metro, traffic, and sirens.

It was roughly two months ago that VDOT took down a four-foot sound barrier that kept out the loud noise of rush hour traffic on Interstate 66. It’s currently planning on building a three-mile-long, 10-foot-tall wall. But for now, it’s very noisy. And not to mention, there are safety issues, according to residents:

"There's no protection now for children or pets or anything like that going over into 66," says one nearby neighbor.

On top of that, these residents are feeling out of the loop in their own neighborhood. They understand VDOT has a job to do, but say communication is lacking.

Higher walls and less noise, residents say, are all great things – but a little notice would have been nice.

VDOT says they had at least three meetings dating back to December 2011, discussing this multimillion dollar project with residents. It just seems like many families weren’t aware of it.

And as far as that two-month timeline goes, VDOT says work will actually be completed in May of 2015.

Columbia Gas To Replace Odorization Equipment

The News Gazette - dwoodson@thenews-gazette.com (submitted) - Fri, 18 Apr 2014 22:14:08 +0000

Beginning on Monday, April 21, Columbia Gas of Virginia will start the process of replacing the odorization injection equipment and storage tank at our facilities along Valley Pike.

 :

The process requires several days of work and will include a specialized environmental team on site in case the construction activity uncovers residual odorant in the construction site from last year’s odorant spill. Also, they will be equipped to immediately address any release of odorant during the disconnection of existing piping and the removal of the old storage tank.

 :

The odorization equipment is used to inject the non-toxic odorant called “Mercaptan” which gives natural gas the rotten eggs odor as part of Columbia Gas of Virginia’s commitment to public safety. Columbia Gas of Virginia has communicated with the emergency responders in Lexington and Rockbridge County about the pending work.

 :

 : : : : : : : : : : : Should you ever smell a strong odor similar to “Rotten Eggs,” Columbia Gas of Virginia recommends you take the following actions:

 :

· : : : : : : : Immediately leave the area

· : : : : : : : From a safe location away from the odor, call 911 and Columbia Gas of Virginia at 800.544.5606.

· : : : : : : : Warn others to stay away from the area

· : : : : : : : Leave windows and doors in their current position

· : : : : : : : Avoid open flames or anything that could spark ignition - including cell phones, lights, garage doors or other power equipment.

· : : : : : : : Do not attempt to operate pipeline valve or try to correct the leak.
