Franklin Graham comes to Greensboro.


BILL? BILL: THEY ARE EXPECTING A
PRETTY HUGE CHRISTIAN RALLY
HERE. HOWEVER PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIANS
, DISAGREE WITH FRANKLIN GRAHAM
AND HIS SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT
TRUMP. THE RALLY HERE THIS EVENING IS
EXPECTED TO BE A MIX OF POLITICS
AND RELIGION. MR. GRAHAM’S RALLY IS TITLED

’DECISION AMERICA’ AND IN
PREVIOUS RALLIES, HE HAS TOLD
CROWDS THE COUNTRY IS IN CHAOS. A PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIAN LEADER
HERE IN GREENSBORO SAYS THERE’S
NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING
POLITICAL, SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO
BE POLITICAL TO BE FAITHFUL.>>THE PROBLEM IS WHEN WE EQUATE
THE KINGDOM OF GOD WITH A
PARTICULAR PARTY AND WE MOVE
OVER FROM POLITICAL TO PARTISAN. AT THIS POINT IN OUR NATION’S
HISTORY, MAKE A DECISION TO
FOLLOW ANOTHER PATH AND BE
FAITHFUL TO WHAT IT MEANS TO
CARE FOR THE LEAST, THE LAST,
AND THE LEFT OUT. THAT, I THINK, IS THE PATH THAT
THE TRUE PROPHETS WOULD BE ON.>>THEY HAVE BEEN PUTTING TRUMP
DOWN BUT I THINK HE HAS DONE
MORE FOR THE COUNTRY THEN ANY
PRESIDENT. BILL: WHAT WE JULY TO HEAR FROM
FRANKLIN GRAHAM? — WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO HEAR
FROM FRANKLIN GRAHAM?>>TO HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY.>>AND THIS EVENT IS FREE AND
OPEN TO ANYONE WHO CARES TO COME
OUT TONIGHT. THE FRANKLIN GRAHAM EVENT BEGINS
AT 7PM HERE AT THE WHITE OAK
AMPITHEATER, WHICH IS PART OF
THE COLISEUM COMPLEX. KENNY: THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS
REJECTING A DISASTER RELIEF
REQUEST TO HELP PEOPLE IMPACTED
BY HURRICANE DORIAN. THIS WOULD’VE HELPED PEOPLE
WHOSE HOMES AND BUSINESSES WERE
DAMAGED BY THE STORM. GOVERNOR ROY COOPER MADE THE
REQUEST ON BEHALF OF INDIVIDUALS
IN FOUR COUNTIES. THE FEMA ASSOCIATE ADMINISTRATOR
SAYS FEDERAL AND LOCAL
ASSESSMENT TEAMS DETERMINED THE
DAMAGE FROM THE STORM DID NOT
WARRANT INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE. GOVERNOR COOPER’S OFFICE PLANS
TO APPEAL. PRESIDENT TRUMP DID APPROVE A
MAJOR DISASTER DECLARATION THAT
ALLOWS FEMA TO REMINBURSE
SEVERAL COUNTIES FOR THE COST OF
DEBRIS REMOVAL AND OTHER
SERVICES. BRIANA: TURKEY LAUNCHED A MAJOR
ASSAULT ON KURDISH FIGHTERS IN
NORTHERN SYRIA TODAY. THE ATTACKS BEGAN AFTER U.S. TROOPS PULLED BACK FROM THE
AREA. KURDISH FIGHTERS ARE LONGTIME
U.S. ALLIES WHO HELPED DEFEAT
ISIS FORCES IN SYRIA. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THE UNITED
STATES DOES NOT ENDORSE THE
ATTACK AND THINKS IT’S A BAD
IDEA. TURKEY WANTS TO CREATE A SAFE
ZONE ON THEIR BORDER, BELIEVING
THE SYRIAN KURDS ARE TERRORISTS. KENNY: FOR THE FIRST TIME, JOE
BIDEN IS CALLING FOR PRESIDENT
DONALD TRUMP TO BE IMPEACHED. BRIANA: BIDEN MADE THESE REMARKS
WHILE CAMPAIGNING IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE.>>DONALD TRUMP HAS VIOLATED HIS
OATH OF OFFICE AND BETRAYED THIS
NATION AND COMMITTED IMPEACHABLE
ACTS. BRIANA: BIDEN WENT ON TO SAY THE
PRESIDENT IS QUOTE SHOOTING
HOLES IN THE CONSTITUTION BY
ASKING FOREIGN POWERS TO
INTERFERE IN THE 2020 ELECTION. IN A JULY PHONE CALL THE
PRESIDENT ASKED UKRAINE’S LEADER
FOR A FAVOR OF INVESTIGATING
BIDEN AND HIS SON, HUNTER. KENNY: HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE IN
THE MIDDLE OF IMPEACHMENT
PROCEEDINGS AGAINST THE
PRESIDENT BASED ON THAT PHONE
CALL. BRIANA: LEGAL EXPERTS ARE
WEIGHING IN ON THE STRATEGY. SALLY KIDD EXPLAINS FROM
WASHINGTON. SALLY: THE PRESIDENT IS CLAIMING
THE INVESTIGATION IS A
LEGITIMATE SO THE ADMINISTRATION
WILL NOT BE COMPLYING WITH
SUBPOENAS OR ALLOWING TESTIMONY. THE KEY CLAIM IS THAT THE
IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS
CONSTITUTIONALLY INVALID. PRESIDENT TRUMP: THE WHOLE THING
IS A SCAM. IT’S A FIX.>>IMPEACHMENT IS GROUNDED IN
THE CONSTITUTION. HOW THEY DO IT IS DEPENDENT ON
THE RULES.>>THEY ARE ALLOWED TO SET THEIR
OWN RULES AS TO HOW THE PROCESS
PLAYS OUT. BUT THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THERE
IS A VIOLATION OF DUE PROCESS
BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN NO HOUSE
TO BEGIN A FORMAL INQUIRY. EXPERTS SAY THERE DOESN’T HAVE
TO BE BUT ONE DEMOCRAT IS
CALLING FOR IT.>>A RESOLUTION FOR THE INQUIRY
STRUCTURED IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT
CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH FULL POWER
OF THE CONGRESS BEHIND IT. SALLY: THE LETTER INDICATNG
WITNESSES CANNOT BECOME HELD TO
TESTIFY BECAUSE THEY ARE DUTY
BOUND TO PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY
INTERESTS.>>SUBPOENAS WANT TO BE
RECEIVED.>>IT IS AN ATTEMPT TO
DELEGITIMIZE THE IMPEACHMENT
PROCESS AND PAINT IT AS
POLITICAL OR PARTISAN AND
THEREBY GIVING A PRETEXT FOR THE
PRESIDENT AND HIS ALLIES TO IGNORE IT. SALLY: THE PRESIDENT’S ALLIES
MAKING IT CLEAR THEY STAND
BEHIND HIM.>>THIS WHOLE THING IS A
FAIRYTALE.>>THEY SAY THEY CAN GO TO COURT
AND FIND PEOPLE IN CONTEMPT. BRIANA: SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS
IS BACK HOME RECOVERING FROM A
HEART ATTACK. HE HAS NOT SAID WHEN HE WILL
RETURN TO THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. IN AN NBC NEWS EXCLUSIVE, THE
DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL
CANDIDATE SPOKE TO HARRY SMITH
ABOUT SOME CRITICISM THE SANDERS
CAMPAIGN IS FACING.>>IT IS A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE
WE LEARNED YOU HAD A HEART
ATTACK. THERE SEEMS TO BE A SENSE THAT
THE CAMPAIGN MUST BE HIDING
SOMETHING. SENATOR SANDERS: THAT’S
NONSENSE. I THINK THAT SOMETIMES — I
DON’T KNOW WHAT PEOPLE THINK
CAMPAIGNS ARE, YOU KNOW WE’RE
DEALING WITH ALL KINDS OF
DOCTORS AND WE WANTED TO HAVE A
SENSE OF WHAT THE HELL WAS GOING ON, REALLY. SO THE FIRST THING THAT WE’RE
TRYING TO DO IS UNDERSTAND
WHAT’S GOING ON AND NOT RUN TO
THE NEW YORK TIMES AND HAVE TO
REPORT EVERY 15 MINUTES. THIS IS NOT A BASEBALL GAME. SO I THINK WE ACTED ABSOLUTELY
APPROPRIATELY. BRIANA: THIS WAS THE SENATOR’S
FIRST SIT-DOWN INTERVIEW SINCE
HIS SURGERY. YOU CAN HEAR MORE FROM HIM
TONIGHT ON NBC NIGHTLY NEWS.>>THE SCARIEST THING AT THE
LIVE EVER BEEN THROUGH IN MY
LIFE. KENNY: AN OUTBREAK OF A DEADLY
DISEASE HAS MORE PEOPLE
CONSIDERING LEGAL ACTION

50’S BY TOMORROW. BRIANA: NEW TONIGHT, THE FAMILY
OF A MAN DIAGNOSED WITH
LEGIONNAIRE’S DISEASE IS HIRING
TRIAL ATTORNEYS. KENNY: THE FAMILY SAYS HE GOT
SICK AFTER ATTENDTING THE NORTH
CAROLINA MOUNTAIN STATE FAIR
LAST MONTH IN FLETCHER. MICHAEL PETREY’S FAMILY SAYS HE
IS WEAK AND HAVING TROUBLE WITH
HIS KIDNEYS. THEY SAY HE WENT INTO A COMA AND
WAS PUT ON DIALYSIS EARLIER THIS
MONTH. I HAVE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE. ONLY 60% OF PEOPLE MAKE IT. THAT IS A BIG NUMBER THAT DON’T. KENNY: THE LOCAL HEALTH
DEPARTMENT SAYS MORE THAN 100
PEOPLE WERE DIAGNOSED WITH THE
DISEASE. THEY SAY MOST OF THOSE PEOPLE
WENT INTO THE DAVIS EVENT CENTER
WHILE VISITING THE FAIR AND
WALKED BY HOT TUB DISPLAYS. THE DIXIE CLASSIC FAIR IS TAKING
EXTRA STEPS TO PREVENT
LEGIONNAIRE’S DISEASE. THE FAIR’S ONLY WATER RIDE IS A
KID’S PADDLE BOAT RIDE. AND IT IS BEING DISINFECTED
DAILY. ORGANIZERS ARE ALSO BANNING TO
USE OF MIST FANS AND WILL NOT
ALLOW PEOPLE TO BRING IN
HAND-HELD MISTERS. KENNY: WXII 12 IS WORKING TO
FIGHT HUNGER HERE IN THE TRIAD. OUR NEXT PROJECT COMMUNITY TOWN
HALL IS FOCUSING ON COLLEGE

FOOD. THAT’S ENOUGH TO HELP FILL
PANTRIES FOR AT LEAST FOUR
MONTHS. THE GOAL THIS YEAR IS
68,000-POUNDS OF FOOD.>>THERE ARE PEOPLE FROM ALL
OVER THAT COME TO THE FAIR TO
HELP OUR COMMUNITY. IT FEELS LIKE IT IS A BIG
COMMUNITY EFFORT. KENNY: CAN WE DO ANOTHER 4000
THIS YEAR AND GET TO 68,000? FIVE NON PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS
WILL GET YOU A FREE TICKET TO
THE FAIR. IT’S ONLY GOOD FOR TONIGHT. ORGANIZERS SUGGEST BRINGING
CANNED FRUIT, RICE, BEANS OR
PASTA. BRIANA: TOMORROW IS WXII DAY AT
THE FAIR. IT’S ALSO MILITARY APPRECIATION
DAY. ACTIVE AND RETIRED MILITARY, AND
THEIR FAMILIES CAN GET IN FREE. I’LL BE OUT THERE IN THE
AFTERNOON ALONG WITH KENNY,
CHRIS LEA, DAVONTE MCKENITH AND
LANIE POPE. WE HOPE YOU WILL COME BY AND SAY
HELLO. BRIANA: — KENNY: FEW PEOPLE ARE
BETTER AT MULTI-TASKING THAN
MOMS. A CORRESPONDENT FOR MSNBC PROVED
IT WHEN HER SON WANDERED ON SET
DURING A LIVE SEGMENT. CRACKS WE KNOW THAT TURKEY WANTS
TO ESTABLISH WHAT THEY CALL A
SAFE’S OWN ALONG THE BORDER. THEIR CONCERN IS THAT THEY WANT
— THEIR CONCERN IS THAT THEY
WANT TO HAVE KURDISH — EXCUSE
ME. MY KIDS ARE HERE. LIVE TELEVISION. BRIANA: SHE HANDLED IT PRETTY
WELL I THINK. DESPITE BEING A LITTLE
DISTRACTED FOR A SECOND,
COURTNEY KUBE MANAGED TO EXPLAIN
THE SITUATION IN GREAT DETAIL. KENNY: MSNBC TWEETED THE MOMENT
WITH THE CAPTION, ” SOMETIMES
UNEXPECTED BREAKING NEWS HAPPENS
WHILE YOU’RE REPORTING BREAKING
NEWS.”
BRIANA: REMINDS ME OF BBC KID. IT HAPPENS. KENNY: I WAS GOING TO LET YOU
TAKE IT AWAY. LANIE: A LOT OF KIDS WILL BE
HEADED OUT TO THE FAIR, FOR
SURE. BRING THOSE CANNED GOODS AND WE
WILL HAVE GREAT WEATHER HEADED
OUT TO THE FAIR. WE HAVE CLEAR SKIES ACROSS THE
AREA. THOSE CLOUDS DID BURN OFF PRETTY
QUICKLY. IT ALLOWED US TO GET TO THE
70’S. WE ANTICIPATED THE CLOUDS TO
HANG AROUND A LITTLE BIT LONGER
BUT WE WILL TAKE THE 70’S A
LIGHT EAST NORTHEAST WIND ABOUT
FIVE MILES TO 10 MILES AN HOUR. 72 IN NORTH WILKESBORO. JUST A FEW DEGREES ABOVE WHAT IS
NORMAL. THIS IS A STRETCH OF SEASONABLE
HIGH TEMPERATURES IN OCTOBER. WE WILL SEE A SERIES OF FRONTS
COMING THROUGH. NONE OF THESE WEATHER SYSTEMS
LOOK TO BE BIG RAINMAKERS. THERE MAY BE A YOU SPOTTY
SHOWERS WITH THEM AND THE BEST
CHANCE WILL BE IN THE MOUNTAIN
COMMUNITIES. IN THE MOUNTAINS, CLOUDS WERE
REALLY HANGING TOUGH EARLIER
TODAY. THEY WILL LIKELY FILL BACK IN
INTO TOMORROW MORNING. IT WILL BE COOL IN SOME SPOTS IN
THE MORNING. WE END UP IN ABOUT THE SAME
PLACE TOMORROW AFTERNOON WITH
SUNSHINE AND TEMPERATURES IN THE
LOW TO MID 70’S. FORECASTING A HIGH OF 73 FOR
LATE TOMORROW AFTERNOON. MOSTLY SUNNY WITH A HIGH OF 72
IN THE FOOTHILLS. WE WILL START AT 52 AND IN THE
MOUNTAINS, THE UPPER 40’S
WARMING INTO THE 50’S. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE IS JUST SHY
OF 70. TOMORROW NIGHT, N.C. STATE HOSTS
SYRACUSE. KICKOFF IS AT 8:00. MAKE SURE YOU BRING A SWEATSHIRT
OR A LIGHT JACKET BECAUSE THE
TEMPERATURES WILL DROP PRETTY
QUICKLY DOWN INTO THE LOW 60’S
DURING THE GAME. WE’LL TURN OUR ATTENTION TO A
COUPLE OF AREAS. ONE IS OFFSHORE AND ANOTHER IS
OUT IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. NOTHING IS GOING TO BE HEADED
OUR WAY. THAT IS BECAUSE OF THIS FRONT
RIGHT HERE. WE WILL KEEP THESE TROPICAL
SYSTEMS OUT OVER THE ATLANTIC. THIS WILL PROVIDE WINTER WEATHER
IN PLACES LIKE COLORADO,
NEBRASKA, AND AFTER THE DAKOTAS. — UP THROUGH THE DAKOTAS. THAT WILL BE REPLACING SOME OF
THE 60’S OUT OVER THE UPPER
MIDWEST. WE WILL WARM UP IN THE UPPER
70’S ON FRIDAY AND THE
TEMPERATURES WILL DROP BACK DOWN
AGAIN. 77 ON FRIDAY. TEMPERATURES CLOSE TO 80 ON
SATURDAY. EXPECT A FEW SHOWERS WITH THE
MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES. WE HAVE DECIDED TO PUT IN A
SLIGHT CHANCE ON SATURDAY. AND DEPENDING ON WHERE THIS
FRONT COMES TO REST, WE COULD
SEE SOME SPOTTY SHOWERS THE
AFTERNOON ACROSS THE EASTERN
TRIAD. IF YOU LOOK AT THE RAINFALL
FORECASTS, IT IS LIMITED. THE BEST RAIN CHANCES ARE OVER
THE MOUNTAINS. MAYBE HEAD OVER TO TANGLEWOOD
FOR SOUTHERN CHARM AT THE FARM. THERE WILL BE A LOT OF SMALL
BUSINESSES WITH THEIR CRAFTS AND
ARTISANS OUT THERE. CHECK OUT WHAT WE’RE DOING IN
OUR COMMUNITY IN THE TRIAD. OTHERWISE, PARTLY CLOUDY. KENNY: THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS
LIKE IN GREENSBORO. NOTHING IN EITHER DIRECTION. BRIANA: IT’S WEDNESDAY AND WE
ARE WEARING PINK FOR BREAST
CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. KENNY: WE EVEN TURNED OUR NEWS
DESK PINK. THIS MONTH WE ARE PARTNERING
WITH THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
TO RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR
THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER. BRIANA: AND EVERY WEDNESDAY WE
ARE WEARING PINK. THE ENTIRE WXII 12 NEWS STAFF IS
JOINING THIS CAUSE. THAT IS OUR ASSIGNMENT EDITOR
KATIE. EVERYBODY IS GETTING IN ON THE
FUN. KENNY: BEHIND THE SCENES, ON
CAMERA, BEHIND CAMERA, JUST POST
A PHOTO OF YOUR PINK USING THE
HASHTAG #WXIIWEARSPINK. YOU COULD SEE YOUR PHOTOS ON AIR
OR ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES. BRIANA: WE COULD BE IN FOR A
REALLY BAD FLU SEASON. WHERE RESEARCHERS ARE LOOKING TO
MAKE THEIR PREDICTION. AND WHO THEY SAY SHOULD GET A
FLU VACCINE NOW. KENNY: PLUS, A FAVORITE
CHILDHOOD BOOK CHARACTER IS
RETURNING TO TELEVISION. WHY ’NANCY DREW’ ACTORS SAY HER
STORY IS TIMELESS. YOU’RE WATCHING WXII 12 NEWS
BRIANA: A FAVORITE CHILHOOD BOOK
CHARACTER IS COMING TO THE TRIAD
C.W. TONIGHT. KENNY: NANCY DREW IS AN UPDATED
TAKE ON A BELOVED MYSTERY
SERIES. THE STAR SAY THE CHARACTERS
STILL WORK.>>I THINK NANCY HAS SUCH A
TIMELESS QUALITY BECAUSE SHE’S
THIS REBEL WITH A CAUS
SHE’S WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT
TAKES FOR JUSTICE AND SHE’S
INCREDIBLY BRAVE AND INCREDIBLY SKILLED. AND CARES ABOUT PEOPLE AND IS
WILLING TO PUT HER MONEY WHERE
HER MOUTH IS AND I THINK THAT’S
SUCH AN ATTRACTIVE QUALITY IN
SOMEONE THAT’S REALLY, TRULY,
COMMITTED TO JUSTICE AND RIGHTING WRONG
AND I THINK THAT THAT’S WHAT
KEEPS HER AROUND.>>PEOPLE ARE ENDLESSLY CURIOUS
ABOUT THE IDEA OF UNCOVERING
THESE THINGS THAT ARE MAYBE NOT
PERFECTLY CLEAR TO ALL OF US AND
I THINK NANCY REPRESENTS IN A
CHARACTER THE DISCOVERY OF ALL OF THOSE MAGICAL THINGS THAT ARE
HAPPENING IN OUR LIVES AND
AROUND US THAT WE CAN’T
NECESSARILY SEE DAY TO DAY. BRIANA: NANCY DREW PREMIERES ON
THE TRIAD C.W. TONIGHT AT 9:00. THEN BE SURE TO STICK AROUND FOR
WXII 12 NEWS ON THE TRIAD C.W. AT 10:00. KENNY: ANOTHER COUPLE IS HEADED
TO PRISON FOR THEIR ROLE IN THE
COLLEGE BRIBERY ADMISSIONS
SCANDAL. WHAT THEY DID TO GET THEIR

PERMANENT. THE CHANGE THAT MOTIVATED HIM TO
GET THESE TATTOOS. BRIANA: TONIGHT, A SCHOOL
DISTRICT IS PULLING 20,000
CHROME BOOK SET OF THEIR
SCHOOLS. KENNY: ONE OF THEM OVERHEATED
TODAY. HERE IS A LOOK AT WHAT IT LOOKED
LIKE AFTERWARDS. A STUDENT WAS USING THIS AT AN
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WHERE LEADERS
EVACUATED. BRIANA: STEVE KING IS FOLLOWING
THIS STORY. KENNY: HAPPENING NOW, A TEENAGER
IS ACCUSED OF DRAGGING A
DAVIDSON COUNTY DEPUTY WITH A
VEHICLE. INVESTIGATORS SAY THE DEPUTY
PULLED THE CAR OVER ON OLD
HIGHWAY 52 NEAR BRADLEY TYSINGER
ROAD, BECAUSE THE DEPITY THOUGHT
SOMEONE INSIDE THE CAR WAS
WANTED. INVESTIGATORS SAY 17-YEAR-OLD
NICHOLAS MYERS EVENTUALLY TOOK
OFF WHILE THE DEPUTY WAS NEAR
THE CAR AND DRAGGED HIM A SHORT
DISTANCE. THE DEPUTY IS BEING TREATED FOR
INJURIES. INVESTIGATORS SAY MYERS DROVE
THROUGH WOODS THEN HID IN A
HOUSE, WHERE THEY ARRESTED HIM. BRIANA: THIS WEEK IS EXPECTED TO
INCLUDE A MIX OF POLITICS AND
RELIGION. HE IS THE SON OF THE LATE
REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM. KENNY: IT IS A COOL FALL DAY AND
MOUNT AIRY. BRIANA: WE HAVE FESTIVALS AND
FAIRS AS WELL. WILL THE NICE WEATHER STICK
AROUND? LANIE: WE HAVE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER
OUT THERE TODAY AND ALSO IN THE
FORECAST. TAKE A LOOK DOWNTOWN AT MOUNT
AIRY WHERE WE HAVE THE BLUE
SKIES AND TEMPERATURES THAT ARE
IN THE 70’S. THIS IS SOME PRETTY TERRIFIC
FALL AIR THAT WE’VE GOT AN
PLACE. 72 FOR NORTH WILKESBORO. IT IS A LITTLE BIT WARMER WHERE
WE HAD MORE SUN. TEMPERATURES ARE SHOOTING IN THE
MID TO UPPER 70’S IN BURLINGTON
AND LEXINGTON. THE AUTUMN LEAVES FESTIVAL
STARTS IN DOWNTOWN MOUNT AIRY. WE CONTINUE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
WITH COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURES
FOR YOU. IT WILL BE A LITTLE BIT MORE
MANY AFTERNOON FOR A COUPLE OF
HOURS. PASSING CLOUDS ON SATURDAY. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE THAT WE
COULD SEE A SHOWER PASSING
THROUGH. ON SUNDAY, COOLER AIR RETURNS
WITH HIGHS CLOSER TO 70. THERE IS A CHANCE THAT WE MAY
SEE A SPOTTY SHOWER. WE WILL TALK ABOUT RAIN CHANCES
AND LOOK AHEAD AT THE WEEKEND
FORECAST, COMING UP. KENNY: CONFLICT IS COMING ON
HEELS OF THE DECISION TO PULL
TROOPS OUT OF SYRIA. BRIANA: TURKEY HAS MOVED INTO
THE REGION ALREADY TAKING AIM AT
KURDISH FORCES AND GETTING HARSH
CRITICISM FROM LAWMAKERS ON
CAPITOL HILL. KENNY: WE HAVE MORE ON THE
DEVELOPING SITUATION OVERSEAS. REPORTER: LOOMS OF SMOKE AND
BOOMING EXPLOSIONS HAVE BEEN
HEARD AS CALLS FOR A CHANGE IN
COURSE CONTINUE TO COME FROM
CAPITOL HILL. TURKISH FORCES ON THE MOVE
ADVANCING INTO NORTHEASTERN
SYRIA JUST DAYS AFTER PRESIDENT
TRUMP SAID U.S. TROOPS WOULD
PULL BACK FROM THE AREA. PRESIDENT TRUMP: I FEEL WE ARE
DOING THE RIGHT THING.>>THEY FOUGHT ALONGSIDE THE
U.S. TO DEFEAT ISIS IN THE
REGION. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SAID THE U.S. DOES NOT ENDORSE THIS ATTACK. IT HAS MADE IT CLEAR TO TURKEY
THAT THIS OPERATION IS A BAD
IDEA. BUT LAWMAKERS QUESTION THE WHOLE
STRATEGY.>>MY COLLEAGUES ARE VERY
STUPEFIED. WHERE DID THIS COME FROM? REPORTER: REPUBLICANS LIKE
LINDSEY GRAHAM —

STUDENTS FORCES AND EVACUATION
AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT IS NOW
PULLING CHROME BOOKS. THE PLAN TO KEEP STUDENTS SAFE. BRIANA: BACK WITH A LOOK AT
TRAFFIC IN THE TRIAD. THINGS LOOK GREAT. SMOOTH SAILING AND NO CRASHES. NOTHING TO DELAY DRIVERS OUT
THERE. BRIANA: AMERICAN AIRLINES WON’T
BE FLYING BOEING 737 MAX PLANES
FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR. THAT PUSHES THE PLANE’S RETURN
BACK LONGER THAN ANY OTHER
AIRLINE. REGULATORS HAVE NOT SAID WHEN
THEY WILL ALLOW AIRLINES TO
OPERATE THE MAX JET AGAIN. THE PLANE HASN’T BEEN ALLOWED TO
FLY SINCE MARCH WHILE
INVESTIGATORS LOOK INTO TWO
CRASHES THAT KILLED HUNDREDS OF
PEOPLE. KENNY: SQUIRRELS IN PITTSBURGH
THOUGHT THEY FOUND THE PERFECT
PLACE TO STORE THEIR NUTS FOR
THE WINTER. BRIANA: LOOK AT THIS. SQUIRRELS STORED 200 WALNUTS AND
LOTS OF GRASS UNDER THE HOOD OF
A COUPLE’S CAR. THE WIFE SAY SHE WAS DRIVING
HOME AND SMELLED SOMETHING
BURNING. WHEN SHE POPPED THE HOOD THIS IS
WHAT SHE SAW. SHE SAYS SHE HAD HER CAR
INSPECTED LAST MONTH BUT HADN’T
POPPED THE HOOD SINCE. THE COUPLE SAYS IT TOOK ALMOST
AN HOUR TO CLEAN IT ALL OUT. KENNY: AND A SMALL WAY, I FEEL
BADLY FOR THE SQUIRRELS. THAT TOOK A LOT OF TIME. YOU CAN SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE
GOODYEAR BLIMP. THE COMPANY IS RENTING IT OUT AS
AN AIR BNB BUT ONLY FOR A FEW
NIGHTS. THE SEATS IN THE BLIMP’S GONDOLA
WILL BE TAKEN OUT AND THE
INTERIOR WILL BECOME A LIVING
SPACE FOR TWO. TONIGHT IN THE BLIMP IS FAIRLY
REASONABLE, $150. IT WON’T FLY ANYWHERE. IT WILL STAY ON THE GROUND IN
NORTHEAST OHIO. THE GOODYEAR AND AIR BNB
