the fairfax county board of supervisors voted tuesday to increase property taxes on residents and developers. >> and that's all to help pay for a walkable green, transit friendly urban center there. but it's going to take a while to make it happen. and people don't want to pay anymore. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you kind of just said it, boiled it down right there. >> sorry. >> reporter: no, didn't steal my thunder. it's going to take a longtime for this to get done, 40 years. some folks who have been living here since the '70s may not be around in 40 years, they still have to pay for this. and the plan, huge walkable, bike paths every where. it's a huge plan. it looks good on paper. but it's going to cost a lot of money. this construction and the traffic, people have been dealing with this here in the area. now land owners, the commercial
6:03 am
and residential land owners, they have to pay for this construction. and they'll start seeing their taxes go up this time next year. but the 18,000 condo owners in the area say the tax unfairly targets them when all of fairfax county will benefit from the 40 year plan. the board of supervisors still needs to raise the $230 million in taxes, the $230 million rather that the taxes promise to bring in, but they'll now have to current state law. that law lumps all commercial and residential land owners together. if they change the law, maybe residentses will get a bit of a tax break when it comes to paying the new taxes. >> we can decreate and recreate to make changes to it which is something we could do as a result of general assembly action. >> who wants to buy a business or condo when i can go a mile away and pay less tax for the
6:04 am
home and business. >> reporter: but know typically things in the general assembly move very slowly. however we're told by the board that the governor wants to focus on transportation for this short session. and she believes, the chairman believes that they can take up this issue and change the current zoning law in regards to taxes this session. so possibly there could be a change in the law before residents have to fork up their money and extra taxes next year. back tow. >> all right. -- back to you. >> all right. >> a well attended meeting. >> we know that one. thank you. vice president biden sits down with the national rifle association later today to discuss gun safety. biden met with representatives of victims groups wednesday to come up with ideas to move forward with gun control legislation. president barack obama supports legislation to ban assault weapons. but the vice president says he

6:12 am
so having that reeastbound forcement helps them to see, okay, i know one-half is the same value, not making it bigger. >> reporter: not to mention the skills they're learning now could be the beginning of a career some day. >> this way we're going to do it they become producers and create their own games. programming skills, artistic skills. >> reporter: and almost without realizing it, sixth grade math gets easier with a fraction of the stress. >> what can go into both of those? >> really cool. and the principal says, you get not one but two teachers on the same page, it helps to drive the lesson home. and it can make it fun too. getting great results. if you have a cool school, we would love to hear from you. and maybe we will feature your school coming up. >> thank you. my next guest is an author. she wrote the reason of fools. and she is one of four speakers
6:13 am
at the national archives this month. n connection with dr. martin luther king's birthday. we have been having a good conversation there. is interesting, i read that you're so excited about the opportunity to share the experiences of the men, many of whom that have tales never known to us or our children. you are talking about world war ii veterans. >> yes. >> and i was telling you my father and father-in-law were both part of that war and did live to see the memorial. what are some of the stories we're losing? >> well, obviously, it's a rate, as i was telling you, how i wish i had the opportunity to speak to your father and father- in-law, but you can't get to all of the veterans because we are losing them so rapidly. but what i will be speaking about today is going to be something called the double b campaign. that's a story that i'm not going to say the story is lost, but when i ask people if they know about it, whether they're
6:14 am
white, black, the answer universally has been no. and that includes when i ask veterans of world war ii. >> that's interesting. very interesting. so what was the campaign? >> the double b campaign was actually was started by the pittsburgh courier newspaper in 1942. but it was because of a letter that they received from a cafeteria worker, a 26-year-old man named james thompson. african-american and he had been drafted. and he wrote this beautiful letter. and it was described as having a dim light, a beautiful letter that said, if i'm being asked to sacrifice my whole life for this country, would it be too much to ask that i enjoy the rights of citizenship. >> yeah. >> and at that time, quite a question to ask. and in the novel, the reason of fools, i parallel what was going on in nazi germany and
6:15 am
who was going on for the african-american servicemen without enjoying the full rights. >> and there were stories when german prisoners were brought to the united states, they were able to eat in the restaurant with the black soldiers had to go around to the back. and that's a lot for people to understand. >> yeah, it's hard, it's hard to believe. and what was strange for me and a real learning for me during this process of interviewing veterans, i was surprised at how few knew about the campaign. which james thompson said, let's have a v for victory and a v for victory over racism at home. but the veterans were busy fighting and they were counting on people here in newspapers, like the chicago and the pittsburgh courier to carry it. >> the fact that it's part of the martin luther king, jr. holiday, you're saying it's a journey of hope, love and
6:16 am
feeling. and that was his message. and people have read the book and love the book and they're hoping for another. >> i do have it ready. it's coming out in september. i say i've written it. it needs a lot of editing. that's the ted yows part for me. but there will actually be three books and the next will come out in 2014. and that will deal with children of vietnam vets because those children suffered a very different experience. i have interviewed the children of the era. >> and briefly, the novel the reasons of fools has a personal connection because it's based on letters you found after your mother's death. >> yes, and on the cover, my mother had this fiance who died. and it's something to read. >> and she was german-born. >> she was. and she had a very poignant story to tell. and i tell part of the story. >> how exciting for you to be
6:17 am
at the national archives. it is. and exciting to be here with you. and i thank. >> you are welcome. the book is called the reason of fools and what else is important, the stories that she is collecting from the surviving veterans of world war ii. they are wonderful stories that need to be told. thank you. >> thank you. >> let's go to howard now. it's very nice this morning. we've got 30s and 40s. winds are in a good spot. fairly light. and even though we've got patchy fog, a good way to start the day. 35 to 46. sunrise at 7:26. and the clouds will thicken up throughout the day. more sun this morning and more clouds this afternoon. light wind, 5, 8 miles per hour. and the high temperature should be about the 50-degree mark. 39 in baltimore currently. winchester, chilly at 37. the the south, low 40s. -- to the south, low 40s. and here in the district, a nice looking morning on the weather camera. temperature down to 44 degrees.

a northwesterly wind at 9 miles per hour. so feels like 39. but considering it's january, wind chills could be a whole lot worse. the cold air, the arctic stuff way up in canada. in fact, most up in the polls. looks like in a week, it may start to move toward north america. in the meantime, a nice warm-up along the north coast. and some cold, but nothing terrible. again, in good shape at the moment. a storm system out west. but this thing produced a lot of rain. and also some severe weather this morning. but this tornado watch across louisiana and mississippi. and it's also, this storm moves to the north, it's going to pump a lot of warm air up with it. and we are going to be on the warm side of the storm. and maybe struggle to get past 50s today and tomorrow. it's going to be the weekend. clouds will increase here tomorrow afternoon. and evening. when we will have rain around.

6:25 am
when you see a knee buckle like that, it brings back memories. >> six to eight months, the kind of mental health he has, determination to get back into the game, that he could be back in the field in eight months. is that realistic. >> it's real realistic, but it's not conservative. he basicallier to three ligaments in the knee. we have to caution to not look at him like peterson. i don't think we can expect the same thing. >> go ahead. >> well, because her to three ligaments, he's 6-foot 2 and with the one he injured initially, you have to be cautious and protect that. and you can't be too aggressive the range of motion. and they had to take a ligament from his other knee. and now he has to rehab both sides. >> what i was going to ask you again, how long did it take? you didn't go back because you said it was career-ending. but before he is able to really
6:26 am
start rehab, do we have to ease him into this? i know he walked out of the hospital probably yesterday. and they are going to start rehab today. what will that look like? >> well, they'll work on range of motion gently. because he had the lateral injury, they have to protect that. >> and still swelling. >> a lot of swelling. that initial injury against baltimore. that was traumatic and now just reinjured it again, worse. and then surgery. that's a lot of trauma on the joints. a lot of inflammation and they'll have to get rid of that first. but they need to start gradually working on the range of motion. >> does he do anything in water to make it better? or start doing leg lifts? gentle treadmill action? what? >> definitely won't be on the treadmill. probably on crutches initially. he will start doing leg lifts. he won't be on water right now. he has to let that heal. but eventually he will get in
6:27 am
the pool. underwater treadmills. there are a lot of different things he will have access to. >> the first weeks, how critical is that? >> very important. still in the protection phase. so it's very critical. >> if you worked on someone, because i have seen the pictures at your office, you worked with the lead athletes in ice skating and basketball and football. and tennis. do most recover? >> yeah, when i played back in the early 80s, you didn't come back from the injury. but now, everybody comes back from the acl injuries. just a matter of when? >> acl and lcl? >> yeah, he's going to be fine. and it's just a matter of when. if anybody can do it, he can do it. >> thank you for being here with us. >> good to see you. >> great guy. thank you for coming in. and folks in tyson's corner, they are complaining. the latest on a recent board of supervisors tax zone. more money out of their pockets

6:35 am
street, no hands, mom. we'll be watching. >> thank you. all in the name of progress, not just that driverless car, but the county is look ago head 40 years down the road with development plans. the board of supervisors voted to create a tax zone that includes a 10% hike to help pay for an urban center. >> and opponents are angry, they say it will hurt future growth. more on the debate. it's interesting on how the share of the tax would end up hitting people. >> reporter: absolutely. there are about 18,000 condo owners in the area. and roughly we're told about this tax could add about $30 a month to their property taxes. they essentially say we shouldn't be the only ones here in the area having to foot the bill for this construction that we may not see the benefits of in our lifetime because it's a
6:36 am
40-year plan. they say everyone's going to benefit from this construction. and the redevelopment. so the whole county should have to pay. but right now, you know, it seems like, this area will likely get hit with the tax. not only commercial land owners, but residential land owners as well. and that's the debate, why should residential land owners pay the same tax rate that the commercial land owners are paying and that's why so many folks are upset. >> and it's making way for new development, new retail, new housing, new major areas for businesses to locate. they'll try to get more business in the area. shouldn't some of the developers who are going to profit from this be among those paying their fair share? >> reporter: that's interesting because we spoke to one of the, the real vocal proponent -- vocal opponents of the tax.
6:37 am
and he says the developers should scale back their plans. and if they scale back their plan, they would have the extra $230 million in order to fund the rest of their project. right now, the county wants developers to pay for bike lanes and some additional amenities that maybe these, maybe the taxpayers or residents here say if they just scale back the plan for the project, then they'll have this extra money and we won't have to pay for it. >> and you may not have as many residents paying that money, maybe they'll go some place else in the county. >> reporter: say that one more time? >> and those are ready to move out and go some place else and still benefit from when ever the development is completed. >> reporter: right. 40 years for this to be completed. folks say why should i move in to the area when i can go a
6:38 am
mile down the road and not have to pay the tax. and so a lot of people say, have the whole county pay for this tax. interesting side note, the board of supervisor's chairperson told me, this is likely to repeat itself throughout fairfax county. we are seeing a lot of development, a lot of construction happening. and so we're going to have to fund these projects. and so you're likely to see this kind of debate repeat itself in several communities throughout fairfax county when the county is trying to look for extra money to foot the bill for these projects. >> progress, not an easy proposition. thank you. >> thank you. well these youngsters want a job. they were training to be medical students and now hundreds of them are without their school. that's because the american career institute shut down yesterday without warning. aci has a school on georgia

avenue as well as columbia and baltimore. a note on the front door of the schools in massachusetts reads that the company was forced to close, quote, due to a sudden inability to access additional credit. couldn't get any money. at this point, students aren't sure how they'll finish their stew i dids. today, -- their studies. today, jerry sandusky is headed back to court. he was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse last year. today attorneys plan to argue they weren't given enough time to prepare his defense. and the national flu outbreak is spreading there. city of boston declared a public health emergency after the virus killed more than a dozen people and at least three more states have declared a widespread outbreak bringing the total number of states dealing with the flu to 44. the centers for disease control reports the number of people going to the hospital with flu
