depression, look at that spin right still a tropical dre depression, and it's just kind of hging o there. that will eventually kind of dissipate and try to move out to sea a little bit. but you can see the hold the high pressure has on us.no mondayer sunny day. and then even as we get into tuesday, the storm starts to dissipate, the clouds go with it. your monday still looking good with temperatures in the upper 80s. we could have an isolated shower chance as we get into tuesday and wednesday. otherwise the humidity drops as e get into wednesday and thursday, the humidity starts to come back. but not a lot of chances of raih as wed through this workweek. now.:13 right >> we are back in 15 minutes with more of the morning's top stories.
>> northern virginia rorter david culver and the i team's scott mcfarland a joining us this morning. david, that ten-member commission was put together by richmond's mayor, after the charlottesville rally last november. what are the changes to the commission so far? >> inthis is a 10-person commission, it's been going for 11 months. it's a recent proposal that has come out, with just one statue they're asking for the removal of. they're saying four others they want this signage to be put out, put it in historical contexts they're alluding. >> that's what reinterpret
means? >> that meanso be what they're saying, and who's going to be coming up with tt rding, that's something to be determined. but the mayor put this together about a month or so before at we saw in charlottesville, they even delayed the commissioner's meeting the month after concerned that it would get a little bit too heated ther >> this has been an issue all over the country, and even in virginia, part of jefferson vis highway is going to be renamed. >> this is now a debate open and in some cases quite controversial in states througut the country. let's remember in maryland, in rockville, they moved the civil war statute to private land.
this was just thursday morning inharlottesville that the man suspected of driving over and killing onee of unter protesters was formally arraigned for that crime. >> there was legislation earlier in the yearhat would have let localitide to de. where does that stand. >> that got thrown boout by the- there's been lawsuits against that city because of the removal of jeff stewart statue. this is something that's now entering into the judicial. >> the d.c. public school system is still reeling from revelations that nearly 1,000 teachers aren't lthensed i city. a year-long investigation by the news4 i team revealed that both new and veteran teachers including several in the esteemed chancellor'she tes cabinet are still teaching license.a
this has created a shockwave in the school system, but has it en enough of a shockwave to prompt a fix yet? >> we know.c the council will have hearings, we know.c the public schools are requiring all the newly hired teachers for 2018-2019 to have at least applied for a license. we found 1,000 teachers unlicensed, that's out of 4,000, and that dynamic does not exist in northern virginia, that dynamic does notn exist maryland. chool district rules and state policies don't allow it. in the district, things have gotten off the tracks. we have one out of every four teachers unlicensed. the hiring and employing of an unlicensed teacher is against the law in d.c., d.c. public schools does it. who whoever sees public hools?
that is the licensing agency, the office of the superintendent of we're not really sure what the timetableha is for >> one of the questions how this happened? what is d.c. psa? >> d.c. plic schools says it is working on the problem, how did the problem come to be? we only know froon speculan that. if you let one teacher in the classroom without a license, then it's easiero let the second in, and then you get to 1,000. >> there's student safety, the potential cost to the city, the school system, the potentialmo loss of grany, the impact on other jurisdictions. >> and the list goes on, exactly. those are pretty significant onsequences, the issue of safety of students. here's why if you have a school
system, you want to licen your teachers. if you have a misconduct issue, if a teacher were to assault a student, if a teacher engaged in sexual misconduct,an you revoke that license and prevent that teacher from moving into maryland,rgr ia. if you revoke a license, it's quite a thing to get it back.on if you have a license in the first place, there is nothing to revoke, it is more difficult to red flag for tea teache teachers. people here are treacting president trump's trade wars. the issue is hitting clo to how many. the loud duo -- the chamber's president is threatening to in unde the economic process that it's worked so hard to achieve. why is it so important for
loudoun county? >> you sawhat loudoun county went for hillary clinton in 2016. but 40% nearly went for president trump. what's pushed that f the most part has been this rolef community out there. i th going to hurt those farmers. they say that's going to hurt that line. and so is chamber of commerce joining more than 200 other low c cal -- localities saying that they need to be put into action. >> we are seeing this kind of reaction >> you have small manufacturers worried about the impact. and loudoun county is making
local government office holders, the city councilmembers, or councilmembers. they get calls by poet hotholes they get calls about -- the county council is looking at new changes to put speed bumps in your community. because people were protesting drive throughs caused by ways in which the speed was out of control. ere speeding through t cut throughs. when you take the ways alternative. you're trying to make good time, you're notorying go the speed limit. this is a constituent service issu and a powerfulone. >> sometimes you just want to keep moving. it's that mental health kind of way, you're sitting there and you're aggravated, you just want to keepmoving, even if it ends
up taking a little time. even if it takes longer. >> people in this neighborhood went so far as toave a traffic study done. it's interesting because their results showed 42% of traffic in central alexandria, is dueopo who don't live there or work there. that's pretty significant. >>gnhat is icant. a lot of outsiders are m coming through and this one resident who says she's moving, she wants to b making runs around 5:00 to the grocery store, something that now takes h 30 minutes to go down the street. >>to no one should havive up their house because of traffic. >> sometimes it will literally send you byhe whitehouse. you're going, why is this the fastest way to get there? >> and for nothose of us who li in this t area, issue is traffic, which is a big issue. there was an explosion in central park that left a northern virginiage teebadly
injured. now two years later there's new liidence in this particular case. released a photo of the plastic bag that held the explosives on fourt of july. >> this is connor golden, a teenager from fairfax couy, she sthe stepped on a rock and that exploeive too out most of his leg. police have named no suspects, police haveade no arrests. this is an attack in a high profile spot on a hig ofile weekend and really they are nowhere in terms of making an arrest. there was annstagram post that the family flagged who said i think we found somebody on instagram who was there that day. they found a plastic bag, and
they are hoping that will jog someone's memory. they're hoping that that will trigger somebody who make a call. >> what are thehe oddswould find a piece of evidence like that? >> it was unique, it was extensive, there was a bakery that's been closed for years, what's it doing there on the day of the attack, july >> interesting that they're also asking for people who may have been taking photographs there in central park. >> everybody's got a high definition camera in their pocket, does increase the odds somebody's got something. flags across the country were flown at half staff, lowered after days of confusion about whether the white house had rejected a request by theyo of annapolis. do we understand what happened here and does it really >> there is a process to go
through, there's a formal procs to get these types of things approved. there's always a possibility it was just slow process, not somebody trying to block it or deflect it. but i would say this is a self-inflicted error by the white house no matter how yau count it b they got bad publicity for something they ended up doing. >> staff members have been pretty amazing in the wake of thehoing, they put a paper out the day after, in the face of the horror ty were dealing with and it was heartening to see them in the fourth of july parade in annapolis. >> they loved that parade, and it was interesting to hear from one of the editors, who said usually we're cthering , oo're not part of the story. but as of this ng, they're not part of the story. they have moved the newsroomsl oby to a temporary space. what's also interesting to me is
toee the impacts this is having on future urnalists, i spoke to the dean of the university of maryland, and they have a % increase. young people arnot dissuaded by this, if anything they're motivated to keep being journalists. thank you, that's reporter's notebook, i'm paton lanews4 day continues. happening this morning, secretarof state mike pompeo koreanlks with the north government went well. north korea said otherwise, said the u.s. is moving far too quickly. no word on what caused a

right before the tunnel. an upcoming supreme court pick is on the books, . and here to bak it all down for us once again, like every sunday, moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. >> let's start with north korea re, now we have this back and forth and it really has seemed like there's been this back and forth for a while now, and it seems that the administration is pointing to, hey, things are looking good. maybe they're revamping the nuclear arsenal, and things aren't going so well? >> only president trump thought things were going erll, ody else even in his own administration are skeptical, at the north koreans would do much of this, the reason we have been misled with the happy talk, with the president's tweets, the president's words.
and everybody has b n very cautious with this, whether it's john bolton, mike pompeo, this is clearly, in some ways many veterans of north korea's talks, say, this is north korea 101, they dangled something out there, they got what they want. they got the diplomatic coup of a presidential summit. so as one person put it this morning, it took pressure off of north korea, they have been elevated so now they know they're in no hurry, there's no pressure for them to comeo an agreement. they still sort of have their own h feymoon periom that summit, just 26 days old, by the way, and here wear i think for president trump, this is his mission accomplished moment the presideid, we no longer have to worry about the nuclear threat. and in a 26-day window since he said that, we actually know thae they h expanded their nuclear arsenal, and they're basically
sayi good luck, no thank you, and called us gangster like. not exact a road to success. >> real quick, i want to talkhe aboutupreme court pick. are we looking at a major politicalle ba >> look, i don't -- i think if judge amy barrett gets picked, one of the four finalists, i think she would create a firestorm in the capital. but because she has shown the most openness to overturning roe v. wade, it will be a question as to whether the republicans can keep off their votes together. if he picks eher judge hathomas hardeman. thomas hardeman served with the president's sier.
i think thomas hardeman, if you had to go to las vegas and gambling, i would put- personal connections matter, hardeman'sot aood background, rather than your typical harvard-yale pathway to the supcourt. so i think there's a lot of potential positives for the president plolitically too. >> a reminder that you can see meet the press, it comes up every sunday at 10:30 right here. it's not only national affairs we're keeping an eye on this morning, b some pretty hotly contested state elections. >> some are really close, some have been really, really vocal. voters have o choices to ntinue down the path with republican governor larry hogan or take a ratically different
