starting tomorrow, georgetown businesses can apply for liquor licenses that have been off limits for nearly 30 years. liquor license moratorium ended this weekend. there is no longer a limit on the number of licenses that can be used for restaurants and multipurpose facilities like movie theaters. now, neighborhoods in that area and neighborhood leaders say they're excited for new opportunities that this willbly to georgetown. >> so this is all a positive step and where other places in the city has moved ahead as far as getting new restaurants, thousand georgetown, although we have a lot of good restaurants here, we're looking forward to all the new ones coming in. >> the original ban was put in place in 1988 to reduce noise, trash and vandalism. well, right now the calendar may say spring, but that is not
6:12 am
parts of the country. where more wintry weather is expected today, heavy snow could be seen from ohio to indiana on saturday. it caused cars to spin out of control and slicken icy roads. warm weather does expected to return next week for them. hopefully better news for us around here. we can't complain when we look at video like that. >> but here is the really good news. we have the right guy to blame. >> where is kierein when you need him. >> talking about you. you got the sunday duty today. >> spring is what happens when you average summer and winter. >> there you go. >> so a little snow can certainly be had here in the month of april. but we've had more than our fair sure of occurrences. garrett county has had almost 18 inches of snow in the last three dies, an april record. outside today, anything you want do, you can do it. you just have to have your jacket on here
6:13 am
in the 20s and 30s. later today, it's going to stay on the cool side. temperatures eventually into the mid and upper four40s to low 50. tomorrow locthere will be a pasg shower or two. the steadier rain comes into us on tuesday. on tuesday if you have that i thinks do outside, you may want to start coming up with a backup plan. future weather then, through the course of the day today, sunshine here this morning, giving way to some mid and high level cloudiness by later on this afternoon, but we'll be 100% dry. sundown just before 8:00. skies go mostly cloudy after the sunsets and by 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, you can see a chance for a couple sprinkles and showers in parts of the shenandoah. and then 7:00 a.m., a chance for light rain. again, just a few hundredths of an inch of rain. no serious amounts of washout. but scattered light rain showers co
6:14 am
trying to clear out a bit. so we'll probably have a little sunshine tail end of the day tomorrow. just don't expect that to last too long as clouds come back in tomorrow morning. tuesday likely to be a rainier day by about lunchtime on tuesday, moderate rain showers moving into the picture. so rain amounts on tuesday probably closer to half an inch. here is the next four days. sunshine today and 53. 40% chance of rain tomorrow, 80% on tuesday. temperatures a little closer to average. 6:14. and neblxt up is reporter's notebook oig. >> and we'll be back in 15 minutes. welcome to reporter's notebook. do you feel warm and fuzzy when you think of rfk and watching sonny jurgensen throwing the footballs? rfk needs a whole
6:15 am
magic. what should it be? >> well, you have dated yourself, but i likenyonny jurg. so you're in my wheelhouse. but what is fascinating about this sort of report and the issues of what the site will be, i think it's a perfect site if the football team, washington's football team, comes back in to the city. you railroaded have the metro there. you have existing land. we know there is an issue with the name. what is fascinating is that somewhere in that report, they say we're also thinking about building a new aretha whe reren wizards and kachts can play. >> and when that facility characterization came, it revitalized chinatown. so why would you want to move it back out into southeastth
6:16 am
but at some point i think it will be a stadium where washington's football team will come back. >> which begs the question will they change the name redskins. if you want to go down memory lane, that stadium is called robert f. kennedy stadium. and there has been a movement, i don't know how strong it is now, over the years you may not demolish it, because that's a memorial and you better be careful. and when kennedys were younger, sort of a no-no. i don't know whether -- >> is that in writing? >> i don't think it's in statute, but there was a strong feeling that this is a stadium that was named after a person that a lot of people love, especially in washington, and you better be very careful. thousand, if they could somehow, i don't know, modify it are or something, but i don't think today's the plan. the plan is to demolish it. s sdl. >> it would be too expensive to modify it about that. >> what is
6:17 am
is not on the table and that is housing. be an article pointed out d.c. is in the midst of the affordable housing crisis. that would be a great place to housing. the magazine did note that you would actually have to change the contract, so there are legal hurdles that you would have to overcome. but perhaps that should be part of the conversation is perhaps putting some sort of housing there. >> and the people who live down there say they would like to have -- these are young families. they like to have something their kids can go to. it's also a beautiful piece of property along the anacostia. >> and a whole lot of issues in that area. because remember the armory is there, too. many people feel that is underused. and to michael's point, for the people who are there, many of them don't want to see the stadium come back. there might be a lot of memories of the redskins playing there, but many of them now it's like when you close off a street at first you don't want it closed off and once it c
6:18 am
you're like, wait a minute, i like not having all this traffic come through. i think you will have a lot of push back because the property is so valuable, so much of so much historic value and depend, the metro is right there and where the team plays now, that is a big problem in terms of traffic and sets in terms of using transportation. >> anything that happens is going to beg the question how is this neighborhood going to change. >> am i too much of a shopper to -- part of me wants like a little town center. because you've got a little bit of shopping right across the bridge there when you go on the other side of pennsylvania avenue. wouldn't that be a good way to bridge those two neighborhoods a with some mixed use restaurants? again, you have a waterfront there. >> that is one of the options they're looking at. >> and
6:19 am
looking for areas where you can shop and not have to maybe go across into maryland or further back downtown to whole foods or some other shop, isn't that what mayor bowser and many of these proponents are saying that we walk a walkable city, where folks don't have to drive away and they can get to shopping in a way that brings people into the city and gets cars parked and staying there. >> like u street, 14th street, even downtown, it's already happening. that ser a just waiting. >> if you mix in residential and reta retail, it could be potentially gang busters boom for the area. >> the idea of dropping a stadium in there or keeping it there is different to robert kennedy than it was 20, 30 years ago. >> maybe put a little statue up to him. >> they can always put a plaque there, but let's not -- >> a plaque? >> well,
6:20 am
stadium before it became rfk and the team still had ten years on its least in landover. so that is still part of the mix, also. talking about things that -- can we mention the purple line that was approved, so is that all systems go now, everyone's happy? >> not everyone is happy. >> didn't think so. >> some folks are concerned that the contract that has now been signed might have some problems with it. when hogan first became governor, he created cost savings. and there are -- there is concern among some people that those cost savings might undercut the usefulness of this thing. for example, a ten times increase in capacity decreases, then it might end up being faster just too get in your car and go which would defeat the purpose of it. so the concern is this contract might have cost savings baked into it that could undermine the usefulness of this thing. >> does anyone ever compare
tv-commercial
6:21 am
to the i tchcc. [ has that gotten up to capacity yet? >> that's still very controversial. >> it hasn't produced the money that it was expected to produce. >> and we also have to remember hogan was not a proponent of the purple line. he's about fixing roads and also on this transit the authority commission that rubber stamp it and put it through. so to your argument, some could say, well, hogan proposed this, hogan now has approved this, so whatever concerns he may have, obviously they're not so great that you would hold it up at this point. >> this thing has been sold on a wide range of areas as a good thing. it's really got i hate to say it momentum and it would be hard to think that there would be any lessening of that now. when we come back, bus lanes, dedicated bus lanes. i still can't figure it out and it could get more complicated.
6:22 am
6:23 am
welcome back to reporter's notebook oig. i have trouble driving around d.c. because of the bus lane, bike line, i don't know if i'm allowed in it with my car. now there will be even more dedicated -- explain to me someone, please. what is happening? >> you'll notice it is there because it will be painted bright red. so that is an indication maybe you shouldn't drive in it. now, you can get into it if you're going to turn right as you approach the intercession, you can get into it. but only at that time. >> what if there is a bus there letting people off and the guy behind you is honking and you want to go right but you have to wait for the bus. it's complicated. >> and they're talking about the corridor of georgia avenue near howard university and they say the 70s line is the
6:24 am
in the district. so they have to do something there. and this isn't new. you had dedicated bus lines up until the 70s until metro rail came and then they put the lanes back for cars. but you see there, 16th street, a lot of issues where folks trying to get off buses or they feel the buses are holding up traffic. now the district says we'll go back and dedicate lanes to buses. i think this is going to be fascinating especially no motorists to your point. will you see some trying to sneak in those lanes. a $200 fine. >> and synchronize some of those stoplights because georgia and 16th street, they're fairly narrow and you hit one light and the next one turns red and then the next one. that just adds to your aggravation. >> it's an experiment. they will try it for a while. the question is if the buses can be movining the people and it isn't an st
6:25 am
might last. but if it becomes a complete mess, that's something else. obviously they think it will probably work or i don't think they would have allowed for a trial period. >> they can use it as a guide alexandria because metro does this of alexandria. so my guess is they have studied it. >> i've heard complaints over there. from my own family and others, don't they have the bus lanes in the middle? >> right. >> and you have to get out to the bus, you have to go by -- people wondering where the heck they came up with that idea from. >> well, this issue of dedicated lanes is something that urban planners have been talking about for a long time. the alexandria example is a little different than what we're talking abo talking about in in d.c., because in d.c.,
6:26 am
what happened in laegs alexandr different because it's a different lane and cars aren't allowed in it at all. the transportation folks in alexandria, though, say it's been a success and that ridership is up about 40% over the last year and that on-time performance is at record levels, about 98%, 99%. and so they like the example and more dedicated lanes are about to open next month. >> if you can get people into public transit, that's a big deal. >> and remember, too, in these lanes you can have bikes, metro access can travel in the lane, and taxis can if they have passengers. so again, in a way, it could be shifting some of this traffic into dedicated lanes and if you're behind a taxi and we know god bless them sometimes they you've a litt move a little thrslow, so it mi be a positive thing for motor
6:27 am
wrist motorists. shift to ing to christina fisher. she gets a restraining order and then she gets killed. wynn convicted for killing her ex-husband. it looks like restraining orders have no teeth. what does one do? >> legislatively it doesn't look like there is any great rush at about point. there is a lot of talk, a lot of concern and it depends when these incidents come up, there is always a reaction to it, but as far as the federal area goes, i don't see anything moving that much on the hill. there was a lot of talk about mental health evaluations within the gun control debate and yet they got stuck on gun control and then mental health kind of
6:28 am
i think there is a dispute of how much of each. on the local level, i'm not sure how that -- >> so maybe if you get a restraining order, they create a law that says if someone gets a restraining order against you and the courts agree to it that you have to go into maybe a mental health evaluation is this. >> i don't know how much they could have done in this particular case because she had the most extreme protective order where he could not have any contact with her or their children. and so you would probably have to get more into the particular s of the gentleman came to the house, somehow got into the house, and then went back to his residence. so it was very easy for police to find him. so some would i a is there something going on you would think maybe mentally here. but in term of what can be done, is he had tshe she had the most severe type of protec
6:29 am
if the person decides they're going to violate it, i'm not sure what legislatively you can do. >> the protective order is good for people that want to follow it, but here we're talking about an individual where the protective order meant nothing. so you really have to wonder what more could have been done. doct doct >> and we'll have to leave it there. but it's tragic and unfortunately we see it week after week. thank you for joining us. we hope you continue to have a good weekend. take one step outside and you won't think it's spring. many neighbors are waking up to bitter cold temperatures. and it won't be as windy, but you're definitely going to fe
