1.      Hurricane  Harvey barreled into Texas on Friday night, leaving a trail of  destruction in its wake and the cities of Rockport and Port Aransas were  both left devastated by the storm, which forced tens of thousands of  people to flee the Gulf Coast. The American Red Cross, The  Salvation Army, Samaritan's Purse, Save The Children and the Southern  Baptist Disaster Relief are all assisting in relief efforts along with  government agencies. What are your thoughts about Harvey and the  situation in Texas?

2.    The  Indians took a weekend series from the Royals and head back out on the  road to play the Yankees tonight.  Are you concerned about the injuries  to Brantley, Chisenhall, Tomlin, Kipnis and Miller as the Indians hit  the stretch run of the season heading into the playoffs?

3.      The trade between the Cavs and Celtics that involved Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas could be in doubt.  The Cavs are worried about Thomas's hip and could void the deal if Boston does not sweeten the deal by adding another player.  Reportedly, the Cavs would like Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown in the trade to go with the original deal.  Will the trade be voided? 


4.      Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat UFC champion Conor McGregor with a 10th  round technical knockout as the referee stopped the fight giving the  former champ a 50-0 lifetime record. The fight was more competitive than  some people thought with Mayweather having a rough beginning before  gaining control of the fight.  Will Mayweather retire and join Rocky  Marciano as one of the few undeated boxers in history? Do you think we  could see a rematch fight?


5.      A hearing for former Flint, Michigan officials charged in the water crisis case is scheduled for today. It’s a probable  cause hearing for four former Flint officials with charges including  involuntary manslaughter, false pretenses, and conspiracy to commit  false pretenses in relation to the water crisis. What should happen to  them?


6.      Ohio  Republican Gov. John Kasich and Colorado Democratic Gov. John  Hickenlooper are reportedly considering a run for the White House as a  unity ticket in 2020.  Do you think it’s possible in American politics  to see a Democrat and a Republican on the same ticket running for  President of the United States?


7.      The  man once known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff”, former Maricopa County  Sheriff Joe Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt last month for  disobeying a judge’s order to stop his immigration round ups looking for  undocumented workers. He received a pardon from President Trump over  the weekend. What do you think about the pardon?


8.      The  man accused of resisting arrest in a viral video posted to Facebook  plead not guilty.  Richard Hubbard III, 25, faced charges of resisting  arrest and driving on a suspended license when he appeared in court for  his initial arraignment. In the video above, officer Michael Amiott can  be seen punching Hubbard several times after telling Hubbard to face  away from him.  It happened after Hubbard was pulled over on E. 228th  Street earlier this month. Hubbard was wearing a neck brace during the  court hearing, and said he feared for his life and did not resist the  officer. Officer Amiott was suspended for 15 days without pay, removed  from the SWAT team and will be undergoing further training.  Do you  think Hubbard will be cashing in from the city of Euclid?


9.       From  bad cop to good cop:  The Cleveland Police have replaced school  supplies for Sister Mary Jean Raymond who was robbed in her driveway  last week in the Collinwood neighborhood.  Cleveland Police Patrolman’s  Association President Steve Loomis say the police union was able to  double the supplies she lost.  Police are still searching for the man  who robbed Sister Raymond.  Do the good cop stories not get reported on  enough?


10.     Bill Cosby has hired famed criminal defense attorney Tom Mesereau who  has won some legendary cases including defending Michael Jackson during  the singer’s child molestation trial.  Will he be able to help Cosby  beat it?
