  • War at Home Memorial coming to NorfolkWar at Home Memorial coming to Norfolk

    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A new memorial is coming to Norfolk in early December. Norfolk is the first ever stop for the mobile monument, War at Home Memorial, a project of Mission 22 out of Nashville, Indiana. The nonprofit organization has developed programs and brings awareness for veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The monuments are constructed from a steel plate, with the veteran’s outline hollowed out from the plate. At the base of each is an enlarged dog tag with the details about their life and service. The memorial will be located along the Elizabeth River Trail near the Larchmont Library. The project is set to begin this week and will be completed in early December. An opening event is currently being planned. The memorial will be free and open to the public, and will be available for viewing until November 2018.Filed under: Local News, News, Norfolk

  • President Trump says he has put big-game trophy decision on holdPresident Trump says he has put big-game trophy decision on hold

    Watch VideoPresident Donald Trump said Friday that he has decided to put a decision about big-game trophies on hold. “Put big game trophy decision on hold until such time as I review all conservation facts,” Trump said on Twitter. “Under study for years. Will update soon with Secretary Zinke. Thank you!” Trump was referencing his administration’s decision to remove restrictions on importing African elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia. His tweet came on the same day that a notice allowing elephant trophies from Zimbabwe appeared in the Federal Register. The decision meant Americans would soon be able to hunt the endangered big game, an activity that garnered worldwide attention in 2015 when a Minnesota dentist took Cecil, perhaps the world’s most famous lion, near a wildlife park in Zimbabwe. A US Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman said the move would allow the two African countries to include US sport hunting as part of their management plans for the elephants and allow them to put “much-needed revenue back into conservation.” Critics, however, note the restrictions were created by the Obama administration in 2014 because the African elephant population had dropped. The animals are listed in the Endangered Species Act, which requires the US government to protect endangered species in other countries. “We can’t control what happens in foreign countries, but what we can control is a restriction on imports on parts of the animals,” Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, said earlier this week. On Friday, Pacelle said, “Grateful to President Trump for reassessing elephant and lion trophy hunting imports. This is the kind of trade we don’t need.” Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke issued a statement Friday night about putting the decision on hold: “President Trump and I have talked and both believe that conservation and healthy herds are critical. As a result, in a manner compliant with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, the issuing of permits is being put on hold as the decision is being reviewed.” Trump’s sons Donald Jr. and Eric are themselves big game hunters. Photos posted in 2012 by the website Gothamist show Donald Jr. holding an elephant tail. The website says the photos were from a 2011 hunt in Zimbabwe.

  • Tuition goes up 7 percent for new William and Mary freshmenTuition goes up 7 percent for new William and Mary freshmen

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Incoming in-state freshmen at the College of William and Mary will face a nearly 7 percent tuition hike in the fall of 2018. The Williamsburg school announced Friday that the new tuition rate for in-state students entering next fall will be $17,434. That’s a 6.5 percent increase from this year. The increase does not affect undergrads already enrolled at the college. Since 2013, the school has frozen tuition for returning students at the rates they paid as incoming freshmen. The college’s governing board voted to extend that policy at a meeting Friday. As a result, incoming freshman who pay the new rate beginning in 2018 will not see any tuition hikes during their four years of undergraduate study. Out-of-state rates and room-and-board fees will be set in April.Filed under: Local News, News, Williamsburg

  • Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program prepares to respond to cold-stunned sea turtlesVirginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program prepares to respond to cold-stunned sea turtles

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program is gearing up for winter, which means preparing to take in cold-stunned sea turtles. The team has already brought in four turtles this season. “Cold-stunning” is a hypothermic reaction that happens when sea turtles are exposed to cold water temperatures for long periods of time. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, symptoms of cold stunning include decreased heart rate, decreased circulation, and lethargy, followed by shock, pneumonia and possibly death. The chances of sea turtles getting cold-stunned rise whenever water temperatures fall below 50 °F. If you see any sea turtle in the region, regardless of its condition, call the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program at (757) 385-7575.

  • Student sues university (and wins) for ADA violations over service dog in sorority houseStudent sues university (and wins) for ADA violations over service dog in sorority house

    A judge has decided that a sorority sister who uses a service dog can return to live in the Chi Omega house at The Ohio State University for now, even though another sister claims that she’s allergic to the dog and it’s making medical conditions she suffers from even worse. “The panic attacks restrict her breathing” Madeleine Entine, a sophomore, sued the school’s ADA coordinator for forcing her and her service dog to move. She says the school violated the Americans with Disability Act and the Fair Housing Act in making its decision. Entine says she suffers from panic attacks, ones so severe they interfere with her daily activities. “The panic attacks restrict her breathing ability and cause her to hyperventilate. They also cause her muscles to lock up and prevent her from walking on her own,” court documents said. So Entine gets relief from Cory, a service dog. Cory is trained to climb on her stomach and apply pressure. That helps bring her relief so she can restore her ability to breathe and move, court documents say. He also helps her have less frequent attacks. “The two individuals are at odds” At the start of the school year, Entine and Cory moved into the Chi Omega house. Just a few weeks later, another sister in the house began complaining about Cory, saying she was allergic to dogs. Freshman and sophomore students are required to live either on-campus or in Greek housing. Since she’s the Chi Omega chapter vice president, she lives in her sorority house. Court documents say Cory exacerbates the other sister’s “allergies and asthma, which, in turn, causes a flare-up of Housemate’s Crohn’s disease.” According to court filings, the dog is regularly played with by others throughout the house. The lawsuit does not name the other sorority sister. The situation made its way to the university’s Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator, Scott Lissner, to intervene. Lissner determined that, “…over time, continued exposure to dog dander would ultimately be untenable and unsafe for Housemate.” Because of this conundrum, Lissner based his course of action on who signed the lease first: in this case, the sister with the allergy. OSU says they’ve used this same parameter in other cases. So Entine was forced to decide: either move out of the sorority house or stay in it without Cory. “Physcial parameters” would allow separation Entine claimed that the proposed solutions violated the Americans with Disabilites Act and asked if she could remain at the house, but with “physical parameters” that would allow separation between Cory and the other sorority sister, the complaint says. In a letter to Entine’s attorney Bart Keyes, OSU said that “Due to room configuration and house mechanical systems, it was determined that restricting the dog to a certain area or assigning the students to different living locations or rooms within the house would not accommodate the disabilities of both students.” OSU said it provided Entine an “offer of assistance from the University to make alternative housing arrangements, which she declined.” Ultimately, the university stood by Lissner’s assessment, and Entine was given two weeks to make a decision. Allergies “are not valid reasons for denying access” In the federal suit filed by Entine, she maintains that this is a clear violation of the ADA, and quotes the federal regulations. “Allergies and fear of dogs are not valid reasons for denying access or refusing service to people using service animals.” But Ohio State says the situation is difficult to manage. The “case is not about whether plaintiff can have her assistance animal as a reasonable accommodation. She can. Instead, this is about how OSU, specifically Lissner, must accommodate two students with disabilities whose accommodations are in conflict.” Entine’s lawsuit claims Lissner violated the ADA, the Fair Housing Act and other Ohio codes. US District Judge Algenon L. Marbley heard the case and issued a preliminary injunction, allowing Entine to remain in the sorority house with her dog until a verdict is handed down after trial. A trial date has not been assigned yet, Keyes told CNN. The judge’s decision was based on the fact that “Lissner did not perform the inquiry required under the ADA before disallowing the use of a service animal. In fact, Lissner did not even establish that it was Cory who aggravated the symptoms of (the other sister’s) disability,” according to the court documents. CNN reached out to OSU, but officials said the university does “not comment on pending litigation.” Calls to the Chi Omega sorority have not been returned.

  • Center gives free glasses to group of refugeesCenter gives free glasses to group of refugees

    Kansas City, Missorui (KCTV) — A group of refugees in Kansas City lined up in the cold on Thursday morning to get eyeglasses. For one man, it means he can start planning for the future. “I want to learn English,” said Hassan Fahar, who got new glasses through Don Bosco Center. Fahar is one of almost 70 people who got a pair of free glasses. The whole group consisted of refugees. Some were from Spanish-speaking countries and others, like Fahar, were from Somalia. That is why they were being helped by nurses from Truman Medical center who speak the refugees’ native languages. Fahar has been in the U.S. since 2011 and was a teacher in Somalia. The glasses will help him reach his goals. “They don’t know English,” he said, “so I want to help people like me.” This year, nearly 100 people took free eye exams and more than 60 needed glasses.

  • Mom in minivan helps police chase down shoplifting suspectMom in minivan helps police chase down shoplifting suspect

    American Fork, Utah (KSL) — Krystal Tukuafu has used her minivan to haul furniture and as a camper. Now, Tukuafu can boast that she used her minivan to help a police officer chase down a shoplifting suspect and arrest him. Krystal Tukuafu was shopping with her 3-year-old son when she noticed a police officer running after a man. Tukuafu, who has about 1,000 followers on Instagram, began livestreaming the chase. On Wednesday, Tukuafu was shopping with her 3-year-old son when she noticed an American Fork police officer running after a man. Tukuafu, who has about 1,000 followers on Instagram, began livestreaming the chase. She followed the men for a while as the chase unfolded. But then, Tukuafu said she pulled next to the officer in a parking lot. “I was like, ‘Hey, you want a ride?’ And he just yanked my door open, got in and was like, ‘Follow this guy,'” she said. At that point, Tukuafu said she was both shocked and excited at the same time. “I didn’t know if I knew how to get there as quickly as he wanted me to. I didn’t even knew if I had my seat belt on and I’d get in trouble for it,” she said. Tukuafu pursued the fleeing man in her minivan. She got within 5 feet of him before slamming on her brakes so the officer could jump out with his Taser, order the man to stop and arrest him. “I was excited that I was with my son because he was like, in heaven. He kept saying, ‘So cool, so cool,’” she said. Steven Glen Munson, 34, of Salt Lake City, was arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of shoplifting and failing to stop at the command of a law enforcer. With backup officers right behind, Tukufau said she left before the officers could thank her. Later, on their Facebook page, American Fork police acknowledged “the nice lady (who) Talladega-Nights the officer to where the suspect is still running” and thanked her. Tukuafu said unlike some people, she’s proud she drives a minivan. And now, she has even more bragging rights. “I’m a cool mom to my kids and to a lot of moms in my neighborhood who drive minivans. Like, seriously, you just can’t underestimate us moms with minivans, You never know. Now I’m just waiting for someone to pimp my ride. I want some, like, cool law enforcement stuff. I think that would be cool,” she joked. Tukuafu said her husband is a retired NFL player, and the only one on the team who drove a minivan to work.

  • Historic tax reform could take away Hampton Roads’ historyHistoric tax reform could take away Hampton Roads’ history

    NORFOLK, Va (WAVY) — Tax reform plans in Washington D.C. could change the look and feel of Hampton Roads cities in the future. Plans in the House and Senate would either eliminate or drastically reduce the historic tax credit. It’s money developers receive after restoring approved historic buildings. Since 2002, more than 1,200 historic buildings in Virginia have been restored using the HTC. That’s more than $3 billion in development. In Hampton Roads, Norfolk has benefited the most. Just take a look around the mermaid city and you’ll see old buildings taking on new lives. The Brightleaf Building, originally an old tobacco warehouse, is one example. It is now luxury apartments. Developers with The Monument Companies also have big plans for the Old Dominion Peanut building across from O’Connor’s Brewing. “That’s probably a $16 million mixed use project that we would like to do,” Chris Johnson told WAVY. The Monument Companies was supposed to close on that property and another along High Street in Portsmouth in the first half of next year but, with the historic tax credit in jeopardy Chris Johnson is now scrambling to get the deals done in the next 30 days. “Which is not a pleasant experience for us,” he said. Johnson also said that if Congress eliminates or changes the tax credit effective January 1, the landscape of Hampton Roads will change. New construction is cheaper than restoration, so more old buildings would likely be bulldozed. Republicans say they are trying to trim such tax breaks in order to deliver across the board tax relief. Many Democrats disagree. “In my view its short-sided to remove a tax credit that has such significant impact on spurring local economies,” said Senator Tim Kaine. Senator Kaine says such projects have created nearly 59,000 jobs and more than $800 million in taxes In Virginia since 2002. Norfolk alone saw 36 projects and $87 million in investment from 2011-2016. Kaine is working to preserve the tax credit. Otherwise, some fear preserving history could become a thing of the past.   Historic tax credit projects in Virginia, Fiscal years 2002-2016: Chesapeake: 0 Hampton: Three projects – All in 2008 – Rehabilitation expenditures: $57,460,452 – One of the three projects was the Chamberlin Hotel Newport News: Three projects – 2004, 2012 & 2013 – Rehabilitation expenditures: $16,375,002 Norfolk: 47 projects – Projects every year except 2009 – Rehabilitation expenditures: $145,507,773 Portsmouth:17 projects – 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2016 – Rehabilitation expenditures: $34,261,688 Suffolk: 29 projects – 2003-2008, 2010, 2011, 2013-2016 – Rehabilitation expenditures: $60,000,205 Virginia Beach: 0Filed under: Local News, National, News, Norfolk, Politics, Portsmouth

  • Civil rights groups say police body cameras violate rightsCivil rights groups say police body cameras violate rights

      NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – Police departments around the country are now equipping themselves with body cameras to provide another look at what is happening at the scene. “It gives us a removed perspective of what’s going on,” said Newport News Sergeant Perry Bartels. Bartels says cameras have been a great addition, but we have to remember what they are. “I think the body cameras are a tool just like any other piece of evidence,” Bartels added.  “It is essentially a witness.” Most police departments that have body cameras allow officers to watch the video before writing a report. However now the civil rights group The Leadership Conference, and non-profit group Upturn, say watching the video first could violate civil liberties. “It is important to capture an officer’s independent perspective,” said Harlan Yu, Upturn’s executive director. The groups feel that if an officer watches the video before writing the report, the officer’s memory of the event could be altered. That officer would then put that altered version into the report.  That could cause an issue when the case goes to court, because we wouldn’t know what the officer was perceiving when he or she was on that call. “Officers should be judged on their actions and what they perceive, not necessarily what is perceived in the footage itself,” Yu added. The group is asking for two reports:  One written before seeing the footage and another after.  Yu says his group is working with city councils and police departments to come up with uniform standards. “I can’t necessarily agree that this alone is violating anybody’s rights,” Bartels said. Bartels says most officers now will write reports without watching the video.  He tells 10 On Your Side as technology is changing, so is the way it is being used in court, and departments are waiting for guidance. “Until that happens, you have agencies across the country disagreeing on whether or not officers should be able to watch a video prior to writing a report,” Bartels added. 10 On Your Side checked to see what local police departments that have body cameras are doing.  Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Suffolk, Isle of Wight County and York-Poquoson all say the officers have the option to review video before writing the report.Filed under: Local News, Newport News, News

  • Witness in disbelief after road rage incident at Chesapeake shopping centerWitness in disbelief after road rage incident at Chesapeake shopping center

    CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Outside The School Box, in the Greenbrier Market Center, Laura Ellis still can’t believe what she saw at the shopping center’s three-way stop. “I just thought, what is this world coming to?” she said. It was a scene of brutal violence, started by confusion at the intersection. “This car was coming (through the intersection) and he couldn’t go straight because a van had come too far into the road,” she explained. Thursday afternoon, Ellis didn’t see the disagreement, but she heard it. “It was screaming,” she remembered. “It was a lot of foul language going on and my first thought was road rage.” In the roadway, she saw two men wrestling on the ground. It was a middle-aged man and a young man out of their vehicles. It looked bad. It got worse. “I had no idea there was a knife in there,” she said. The younger man got up and ran to his car. He drove away. The older man stood there holding up his arm. “It was full of blood. I mean you could see part of his skin,” she said. “It was just hanging down.” Ellis and others called police immediately. “A witness actually caught the tag number, so that helps us out a lot,” said Ofc. Kelly Elliott with Chespeake Police. Minutes later, officers arrested 20-year-old Kyle Parker nearby. He is charged with malicious wounding. On Friday, Laura Ellis stood outside near the intersection replaying everything she saw. She expected tempers to get heated at the intersection, but she never expected this kind of violence at a stop sign.Filed under: Chesapeake, Local News, News
