1.  The National Hurricane Center say Florence is still taking direct aim at the Carolinas but you can now also add Georgia to the list of states along the eastern seaboard that have declared a state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Florence. If you were in the path of Florence, would you stay or evacuate?  Would you want to be a reporter who rides the storm out?

 

2.      Some of the strongest hurricanes to hit landfall in the United States were Camille in ’69, Andrew in ’92 and Katrina in 2005.  What are your thoughts about Florence compared to storms in the past?

 

3.      Browns head coach Hue Jackson said before the Steelers game that Josh Gordon would not start but offensive coordinator Todd Haley had him in on the first play of the game. Is there dysfunction in Berea?

 

4.      A man who was found guilty of punching the organizer of last year's deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville has been slapped with a fine of one U.S. dollar, he faced up to one year in jail. Jeffrey Winder hit Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler in the back of the head while Kessler was giving a press conference.   One person was killed during last year's rally when a man drove his car into a crowd of protesters.  Do you agree with the court’s decision?

 

5.      Box Office Mojo ranked the top earning actors and actresses of all time based on total career earnings and topping the list is Samuel L. Jackson who has hauled in $5.7 billion.  His work in The Avengers series helped him reach the top spot.  Rounding out the top five are Harrison Ford, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman.  The top female on the list is ranked #6 overall and the nod goes to Scarlett Johansson who has earned a cool $4.3 billion.   Does it surprise you that Samuel L. Jackson is #1?

 

6.      The Food and Drug Administration is threatening to pull e-cigarettes from shelves. The FDA is ordering the top E-Cig manufacturers to submit plans within 60 days detailing how the companies will prevent teens from using their products.  How can you keep teens  from smoking e-cigarettes?  Should they be illegal to sell?

 

7.   A school district in South Carolina is getting rid of “snow days” and is replacing them with eLearning Days.  When classrooms are closed because of the weather, teachers will send parents digital assignments their children will have to complete at home.  If for any reason students have a problem accessing the internet, they will still be required to complete the assignment within five days on their own time.   What you like to see eLearning days be implemented in Northeast Ohio schools?

 

8.      Hundreds of rare gold coins were discovered beneath an Italian theater.  They were discovered by construction crews at the previous site of a historic theater in northern Italy, which closed in the 1990s. The coins were found in what appears to be a soapstone vase or jar, believed to be from 474 B.C.  If you found them, would you have kept one?

 

9.      The states of New York and Nebraska are launching its own investigation into sex abuse cover-ups in the Catholic church.  New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood has issued subpoenas to all eight of the state's dioceses to review how they handled allegations of child sex abuse.  The move comes in the wake of last month's bombshell grand jury report on sex abuse cover-ups in Pennsylvania.  Would you like to see Ohio Attorney Mike DeWine do the same?

 

10.   A man who was found guilty of punching the organizer of last year's deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville has been slapped with a fine - of one U.S. dollar, he faced up to one year in jail. Jeffrey Winder hit Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler in the back of the head while Kessler was giving a press conference.   One person was killed during last year's rally when a man drove his car into a crowd of protesters.  Do you agree with the jury's verdict?
