close down than open. >> hey, it's going to morning. >> it is. a few clouds rolling in from the west. there's a live view from the storm team 4 tower camera. sun came up at 6:03. that's getting earlier and earlier. it's may but it feels more like a morning than early to mid march. temperatures are only in the 40s from the mountains all the way to the bay. reagan national at 46 degrees. form steam radar showing a few areas of light rain here in parts of western maryland. that includes washington county, allegany county, pan handle of west virginia. they're trying to track farther south coming into frederick county, maryland. but they're trying out as they're coming into this dry air. and the planner for the day, a breezy and chilly morning. winds will start picking up gu gusting 20 to 25 miles per hour. by 2:00 p.m., near 60 and by then we may have a few on scattered showers around. keeps
6:14 am
outdoor plans for this afternoon. have abdomen blel umbrella handy or a poncho. so a breezy and chilly day and damp, as well, with a few passing rain showers. by 10:00 p.m., we clear and it's going to be chilly back down to the low 50s. by dawn on monday, you need the heat on in the car. 30s in the suburbs and rural areas. noon time temperatures on monday, the upper 50s. just into the low 60s by monday afternoon with dry roads. after that, storm team 4 ten-day outlight, milder on wednesday and thursday, and milder by a week from today. that's the way it looks. >> thank you, tom. reporter's notebook is coming up for you next. >> we're back in 15 minutes with more of the morning's top stories. good morning. the recent hate crime in american university hats royaled the campus. students staged demonstrations demanding not only the arrest of the person who strung bananas from nooses aroun
6:15 am
they're demanding the university be open about the investigation and they want the university to be more aggressive in handling cases like this. tom sherwood and scott mcfarland are with us this morning. gentlemen, one of the schools' associate deans says students have a right to be angry, but what they're dealing with is a bureau with okaysy and that the climate needs to be changed. how do you think the opt heics look? how do you think the university handled it? >> it's a drum beat of a story that's coming day after day after day. it's a story that's not going away. it's a private university. they don't have to let news media and stakeholders on campus if they don't want to. and since they haven't done so, they seem to be losing the pr battle. >> and the problem here is whoever put the bananas. we're way past in this country pranks. this is not a prank. to put up bananas, this is
6:16 am
serious issue affecting the mood and tenor and what happened at american university. the university, with i think, was mistakened and brought the reporters who went there first to report on this. they eased up later in the week, but this has now raised whole questions about whether the school needs to modernize its response to these types of incidents and what they will do about them when they find out about they will. >> and we heard a report about another incident at the university of maryland that happened a couple of weeks ago. >> well, there are incidents across the country. >> yes.. >> this has been an issue since 2016, particularly the campaign for president last year. there have been any number of instances and people have complained either about the tenor of the country or trump's campaign and his dog whistle remarks that people saw. it's just not on american university. this could have been against muslim students or somethi
6:17 am
>> it's still important that it happened in washington, d.c. from the national picture. on thursday, you had members of congress who were alumnists of the sorority that's been connected to this controversy having a press conference at the capital talking about how unacceptable this conduct is and talking about the response of the university. you have congress's attention when things happen in washington, d.c. and when they don't happen on capitol hill. >> i was impressed by the way the student government president spoke of it and how she said her -- yes, how she said her parents sort of prepared her for this by teaching her that this is not a post racial society that she's growing up in. >> i think we pretty much agree it's not a post racial society any more. and unfortunately, she had said this happened before she came to the school. she might not have attended the school. >> two of the democrats running for governor said they actually will consider creating --
6:18 am
between the lieutenant governor and tom periello. .one of the questions that emerged were the fairfax county testimonyic party, i asked them, if you get elected governor, will you create a task force on the issue of hate crimes and discrimination in the commonwealth of virginia and and will you include people among those who have been hated against, make sure the people who were victims were part of the commission. and out of the hour-long debate both of them said yes. >> it underscores, we have perhaps the most watched election in 2017 in the nation in virginia in just a few weeks, this primary for the gubernatorial nomination for the democrats. >> and the republicans. >> exactly. and not only are both of those potentially competitive and
6:19 am
expensive. >> and it's interesting because this week, the u.s. voted on health care in favor of the affordable care act and many people attribute that vote to him losing his seat. >> prince williams corey stewart are fighting over the republican nomination. corey stewart came out very strong. he loves to say it. i was trump before trump. but he has not done as well in the opinion polling. and frank wagner simply is not that well known. he's very well liked b, but he's not well known. >>. peter dishaman is no longer the city's interim police chief. what can the city now expect from him as he's the permanent police chief. he officially takes over the department he joined back in
6:20 am
shake-up in the department's patrolling strategy. what are some of the other changes we could see and challenges he's likely to face? >> he wants to demonstrate that he's in charge of the police department. he's very well liked by the rank .file. he has a good relationship with the union. he's very good on the -- one of the things mayor bowser wanted was someone who can go out and speak warmly with the people there and he's going to do a lot of that. >> while he was overwhelmingly approved, there had been some opposition. >> the only person who voted against him was david grosso, the at-large council member who says he wants the police to get an entirely different direction. he wants more -- far more community policing. he once famously said maybe we should consider disarming the police and let them not have guns like in england. he's backed off of that now.
6:21 am
police still need to do a lot more to be community oriented. and for chief newsome, he has to run the department because mayor bowser is going to announce running for election next month. he has to show he's in charge of running for public safety. >> it's hard to believe peter newsome will not be a part of that. everyone brings law and order, safety and the police department into the campaign. that's a hurdle he's going to face, for sure. >> that's the number one issue in any community. are we safe? public safety is a big issue. and are are the police there when we need them and if we want them? that's his job both because he wants to do that job and politically the mayor needs him to do it. >> charles allen, the ward 6 council member says this wasn't about his qualifications, its elevated the profile of police interactions and community trust. >> that's true. charles allen is the chairman of the public set
6:22 am
department. and he's very -- as a staff member on capitol hill forewo w six, he's very quick to respond on twitter or social media, he wants the police chief to sink deep into the community to people will know him and respect him.. he's been on the force since 1989. so he has a lot of history with the city. >> all right. we'll be right whack. in the middle of a storm destiny struck. did may imagine april showers bringing her fashionable, flowers at such a sunny price? never but that's the beauty of a store full of surprises. you never know what you're gonna find, but you know you're gonna love it.
6:23 am
y2c5qy y16fy gk's inspector general says some students were given preferential treatment for students who wanted moved outside of their boundaries. scott one worked on this story. how many cases are we talking
6:24 am
about? did henderson exceed her authority and how serious are these charges? >> all good questions. kie ya henderson says there was no special treatment or misconduct by her when she served as chancellor. so put her statement out there first. what the inspector general says is quite different. they say they reviewed at least ten cases where she used her authority to move students. in seven of those ten, they found it was an inappropriate use of they are discretion and they intimate that it was done for vips, they said it was misconduct that happened in 2015. they say they alerted the office of the chancellor in early 2016. kya henderson announced her resignation in june 2016. dcps, the public school system, says there was no connection between that notification, that investigation and kya henderson's resignation. >> ier
6:25 am
transfers because of the preferential treatment? >> i know of a city official who asked for special treatment and did not get it. but the issue i have for this, i've looked at the oig. all so far we've got out public is one simplepy little letter that said they found that she failed to act impartially and gave preferential treatment. well, the law also gives her the right to do that. what we need to know as a public, which i think henderson should help us know, who are the people who got benefits? why did they get them? if your child is being bullied in the school and you don't want to go through the lottery and wait to get your child out of school, the chancellor, under her authority, can move your child. maybe that happened. maybe she did it because she wanted to be nice to somebody. what we don't know is who are the officials and why were they moved. i know some of that is confidential informationing because we're talking about children, but we need to clear this up. >> sc
6:26 am
repercussions for her? >> that's the bottom line. >> she's no longer with the school system. >> the inspector general made it clear there would be no recommendation for criminal investigation in this. they don't believe there was anything that warranted a criminal review. so that leaves administrative reviewes and administrative sanctions, but kya hennerson is no longer a d.c. employee. she's no longer the chancellor so you can't administratively take any actions against her. that being said, the inspector general has more in his office than just a one-page skimpy memo. there are records that are releasable to the public they should be released. >> and the i team will get them. >> and the current chancellor has the same authority to do this. >> what's more, tya henderson said if the district of columbia has any concerns about that authority, take it away from the chancellor. go ahead. if you've visited the jefferson memorial, you have probably noticed there is still mold spreading all ove
6:27 am
found a way to eliminate the mold without damaging the memorial. tom, tell us about this high tech scrub down. >> last august, i was over at the jefferson memorial and they were trying out a half dozen chemicals. they were worried about cleaning the memorial without damaging the marble and the stone and the granite. they couldn't find one. so they decided to do laser beam remove wral. they're going to use high tech laser beams to get into the crevices and cracks. i don't know if you've seen it lately. it looks like somebody painted the thing gray. they are looking for companies now. they hope to award a contract maybe by the end of may or so. and they hope to have -- in six months, cleaning the memorial. they've got to take care of, you know, no stuff running off into the tidal basin, etcetera. but it's on this memorial more than anywhere else. >> i was just going to ask you
6:28 am
>> there's a tiny bit on the lincoln memorial and on part of the capital. >> that said, the maintenance needs at u.s. parks is epic. there are tens of millions of dollars in outdated maintenance and repair needs that have yet to go addressed at national parks. >> $12 billion across the country. >> billions of dollars. >> it's an unbelievable amount. >> i learned when i was doing this story, that the tidal basin used to be a beach. in 1919 a beach opened there. it closed in 1925 because there was a move with the public to integrate it. it was whites only beach. rather than integrate it, they closed it in 1925. the other thing i learned is the jefferson memorial, one of the sites where they were going to put it is where rfk stadium is. >> is money an issue? >> money is a huge issue. >> it is difficult for congress
6:29 am
park service at a time when there are so many people pulling for money from homeland security, border security, military, national park service often gets lower .lower on the list. i wouldn't say it's impossible. it's going to be incredibly difficult for them to get ahead of the maintenance at parks nationwide. >> even though these are our national memorials. >> but this is why it doesn't surprise me. the jefferson memorial is being addressed because it may be the epicenter of the national parks service. metaphorically and literally, it's a jewel of the system that may be higher in priorities than other states ask other parts of the country. >> you know, the jefferson memorial has only been there since 1943 and the statute, the bronze statue everyone likes standing eloquently there, that wasn't put up until 1947. >> thank you for the history lesson. thank you, gentlemen. and thank you for being with us. stay with us.
