New artist hello we are still folks. He just turned under in the news the number of people who have been no I hit by a cars this year up. Over the total from last year already. And our homicide rates up. Taking people down this year. Halloween night is so when I know many people are out about the trick or treating. You know and and and and adults have kind of taken over the holiday facility adult parties out there and and then we have a society that. Essentially is always on their phone so other distracted more easily. And I'm sure you put all that trick or treating in no parties and on the National Safety Council Lusa. Reminding everybody be careful no matter your plans 2016107. People died on the roads on the night of October the 31 in 121% of those killed were pedestrians. The National Safety Council says that was nationally by the way says that. That makes October the second deadliest month on the roads. So they offer a few tips so long haul trucker traders say safe tonight including avoiding wearing masks as you can't it and it. Urge your vision. Which can obstruct vision. No running across the street children should be accompanied by an adult and discouraged new inexperienced drivers from hitting the road tonight south. Anyway be careful out there are many hill is doing a haunted maze tonight from six to 9 PM and it's a benefit for kids first to the Carolinas but our our group for our Christmas. So if you're out in mint hill in the 101000. Block of Grand Junction road. Head on out to the mint hill on the house. And helps for kids first and carry arms of the that's pretty much our first fundraiser of the year. Taking place out there. And dagger through most of the and so there's a time goes on no superstitions that to refuse to die and can do surveys and whether or not you believe in ghosts and some of the haunted buildings and around Charlotte. The Carolina theater which is a new year process of being a revamped. Nona and whether or not to be a ghost will stay there once it's been remodeled and not turned in part of the new America foundation for the Carolinas under wants him to know so low what we're given to bat. Kevin Spacey is now was the these elaborate on the front page of the newspapers. It's his week apparently. He is offered us another. Lesson in how not to apologize. So while we'll do that and not just by the way yesterday they announced that. Netflix announced that they were canceling house of cards and today they announced that they've actually suspended production on season six. And whether or not that resumes or not we don't know but they said they need time to review the current situation and address any concerns. Of Viera Cast and crew. So low we'll talk about that a couple of seconds because he he really did demonstrate how not to apologize suffer or something like he thought he was to know well that. Too bad I like Kevin Spacey is an actor. Catches everybody has some of their closet. Everybody have a yeah I mean there's things that they get have you done some heavy handed guard gated repair a few bouncing back to the old those Sinatra song regrets I've had a few. Yeah I guess some stuff from my past I've done but I mean if the stuff that if it came out it would absolutely. Arnie issued for the rest of your life. Think so. Well there was. One. Now. Are the annual list of a top earning dead celebrities is out always. Always a real momentum. Enhancer. To know that you get up every day and take a shower and get a car and go to work and do your staying in. Go home and eat dinner and get up the next day and do it again and you do that her. What fifty years your life 4550 years your life maybe get to retire maybe you don't. Then you find out that people have been dead like Michael Jackson for all these years and he out earned June. To the tune of more than you'll ever make it your entire lifetime. He made mower and a dead year than you made it now here's one that I don't quite understand. The thirteen highest dead. Are earning dead celebrities. Michael Jackson. Is number 175 million bucks last year. That's pretty good for dirt guess. Arnold Palmer forty million. Charles Schulz Elvis Presley came in number 435 million. Bob Marley 43 million bucks. But number six on the list. Just died. Earlier this month. Is it not a little bit too early to be put Tom Petty on the dead celebrity list. Considering that he made it twenty million from his last tour and while living. I you would think that that we did that don't don't you have to. I would think that you'd in order to call cattle like are you going after him. A cut a record 25 years ago before your considered for the rock and roll hall of fame. I would think that you have to be dead at least a year to actually qualify for the dead celebrity list because Tom Petty made his money living. It just I don't know it just seems wrong that Tom pennies on the dead celebrity hurting list. On the other hand and it probably twenty million bucks on that tour last year. So. But anyway he's number six principal number seven Dr. Seuss John Lennon twelve million bucks Albert Einstein ten million bucks comes in at number ten. David Boyd nine and a half million Elizabeth Taylor. Eight million dollars. And under. Bettie Page. Seven and a half million dollars as that make you feel. You get a birdie go to a job that you marginal alike and you find out that Bettie Page made seven and half million dollars last year and you're trying to figure out how to pay your visa bill. Too early for a Tom. It'd be analyst I actually got to be gentle least a year before you are qualified to be on the dead celebrity list. How much you think you'll make gable make top ten next year. Well I don't know. And that's led edited do you think of a death that there's been recently been noted that had as big an impact as Tom Petty. Now maybe I'm wrong. 'cause they had a big impact on me so maybe I'm just assuming you had a but I you know I mean I'll listen to Tom Petty radio Rosen of the announcers on there. I I have friends I was in dog gotten emails from some you guys got tired subject if I get I get emails from some you all. Of giving me condolences on dog Eddie's death Alison I'm fine. But I mean you know I get a guy and I bet you it is weird to hear his songs and and then say. Not here anymore that's this is bizarre. Robin Williams was another one that I just hated but I also hated Allen because it was suicide. And I understand that there were extenuating circumstances and abandoned. But I you know I got a problem was suicide or theological problem was suicide that is still bothers me to this to the second. But. Can't think of a death that said as much in practice and and Willie won't have a big impact when that happens. He would have come down the road Adele I'm not even thinking about right now but everywhere you know you know in the likes. I'm a few months or some they're gonna prepare all my god. Has aids it's been awhile since we've had eight tragedy death. Like a Stevie Ray Vaughn plane crashed death that that. Great Altman was the kind of a surprise but. There have been been Gregg Allman Durbin. Given his lifestyle and his history or you know you're gonna picked up a paper any time in the last 45 years and sinker and all the so. I chiefs beat the Broncos last night Broncos. Tragic death. China or if you watched their offense last night but. I got kept on looking at a garden while in August Peyton Manning didn't have early record year with them the year they won the Super Bowl but. Marius Thomas has it been the same receiver sets than that doesn't want to do with the quarterback that even in the ball. And I'd Denver's offense just sucks. And a defense is still pretty. Pretty stout but. And you heard about the bears Zach Miller. Had surgery urgent surgery yesterday to save his leg after an injury on Sunday have you seen the injury. As of one of those injuries and if you see a launch you don't wanna see it twice. But he underwent surgery. On Sunday to save literally to save his left leg. F three torn artery wall dislocating his knee during a game against the saints. On a Sunday surgery was successful and it's unlikely that he will lose the leg since he received immediate treatment but it remains to be seen weathered out his football career is over or not he dislocated his neat. When he landed in the hands on while trying to catch 45 yard touchdown pass. I mean to you don't hear much about that anymore a you know these days that a bill player tidy and in this case. Gets injured on. Play on Sunday and and might actually lose a limb because of it. Although we've had some players you know paralysis. So that was that World Series resumes tonight with a loaded baseball and that's what we'll talk about next. I. Quick reminder. Jim Frye island have brings his place damned. To our Charlotte Catholic high school tomorrow night at 730 it's free Jim what's the former producer of the hello Henry program and in fact. Back in the day about Thompson was told about this back in the day. When Henry could not make it in. Jim would do the show. And both Thompson's been listened to this radio station long before ever got here to work it. Remembers listened to Jim and likened know what Jim did on the air along well Jim went off to. A career in Nashville. As an audio production guys seems to know everybody and their mother has written a book called home made famous friendships and infamous real and imagined and knows everybody in country music I think and then met a bunch of people working with Henry here at WBT. And along the lines he would. He would travel from miss a sound studio. Down the street to Catholic Church from time to time just to kind of clear his head and he read there's a homeless guy that Ares to hang out they're JJ. And and he got to know JJ and befriended him and and that. Panel led to editor JJ. Past and and and that. That led to Jim as a playwright anyway are writing this play called stand. And he's taken at its stated started in Nashville and they moved it around Tennessee and other taken at all over the place and it'll be in Charlotte tomorrow 730 add to Charlotte Catholic high school. It's free. And than they gonna do a performance the next day for the for 12100 students. But if you'd like to attend tomorrow night it's low 100% fund raiser for the urban ministries we have talked to dale mall and X the director of urban ministries all were Jim Ryland last week. And I'll remind you about that again tomorrow but I'm really hoping to packed the auditorium for Jim I want to remind you met his wife here is fitted a long time eerie yellow Charlotte and long been a big time way and so are. Really opened it to a bit that we pack LP Charlotte Catholic high school. For his place stand which well. Got out. Put the cross hairs on homelessness. And couple of veteran actors out of Nashville. Played two of the parts one of them roughly being Jim. And the other one being homeless guy JJ. And it's a pretty moving play and now with a message that admitted that he wants to get out. So. You people especially over there in south Charlotte. Over fresh market grab yourself a handful of our candy and no walk across the street Charlotte Catholic high schools 730 tomorrow night and now. And pick up a free performance. One and I think you'll remember for a good long while. I don't know what will happen in the World Series game tonight if Houston wins the World Series is over here for the Dodgers when there will be a game seven if there's a game seven there's probably a pretty good chance. Then Alex would will be starting Alex woods is a graduate from Margaret tell law high school. I'm he would likely pitch game seven if that happens he pitched game number four. Are for the Dodgers. Long before his World Series the oh lead dog Brickell to a 20094. A state championship. I'm North Carolina for a player of the year in 200910. Into his senior year point 087 ERA. That propelled him to Georgia worry starred before eventually being drafted by the Braves and twenty twellman was part of a trade to the Dodgers in 2015. And days kitchen in the World Series. Come. So when he comes home opt for the class reunion. He wins. Because if you if you somehow or other managed to and turn it into a national scale of digital World Series and win a World Series game that's that works out pretty well done. So way anyway I'd don't generally have a dog in the fight. Spam burger I know is so written for the Houston Astros in our program director is rooting for the Houston Astros. And considering that they Astros have never had a World Series win they've been to a World Series before is a National League team got swept by the White Sox. I guess I'm kind of rooting for the Astros. Just so they got out. And you consider what's happened in Houston this year with the Harvey and all that stuff what a great year that would be for them don't kind of like when Norah loans when the Super Bowl after Katrina. When we're agreed to shot in the arm that would be afraid of city. But I'm not enough liver die with the of the outcome either way or another but I would like to see a game number seven. Ever mainly because I think. I NFL game tomorrow that sucks term for his players. So there you go there are now one of their one of them. Problems that the World Series this year has been and it was exhibit in the last game when had intended thirteen to twelve and hammer home runs on an all over the place. And the World Series pitchers say something's up with the baseball's. In if you don't watch in the World Series between the Houston Astros and the LA LA Dodgers which is to go under game a six tonight. You've you've seen a lot of home runs flying out of the into the stands. In fact so many that after game five this year's World Series has already broken the record for the most home runs ever 22 already. And you've got at least one more game to play and maybe even Terrell and others pitchers from both teams the suspect that they know the reason and they complain that the baseballs being used for the championship series. Feel slicker than normal. Particularly throwing off their. Pitching when they went a special when it comes to throwing sliders. Per job. Got rocked a little bit the other night but Verlander who pitches tonight. Sliders a big part of his repertoire. And he had trouble with that the first time around. Major League Baseball swears there is nothing different about the ball blew the they have a gold stamping on them instead of the usual blue but a lot of the players insist there's a difference in the ball. Now. And royal like you when. When equipment. Controversies. Seemed to designate possibly. Who's winning and losing the game. But we'll see what happens when all that with all that tonight. I'm. Week from today we go to the polls and elect a new mayor among other things. And the Kenny Smith race for mayor is. Is pretty close to buy a Lyles tomorrow night. There's another debate between bio Lyles and Kenny Smith will be here one Julian price place down the hall at WB TV. With brigade a Mac is the the moderator. And a Jamie bowl on Steve Crowe openness Steve Harrison and Katie Peralta all both from the air Charlotte Observer. I am televised on channel three tomorrow night so that'll be at 7 PM mud tomorrow choosing Charlotte's next mayor but in the fund raising department Kenny Smith is up beaten everybody and especially by. New report out yesterday shows that does Smith has raised a 188000. Dollars since the end of August. So that brings his total for the campaign to 5101000. Dollars. Now did I actually hear a vial Lyles commercial on the radio here today. Or did start off file Lyles and I know I think I did I think it was a vial Lyles commercial Oregon editor and Charles morning news would vote Thompson. I'm nor heard a lot of Kenny Smith and I know I've heard down a couple of commercials that aren't necessarily paid for by Kenny Smith voter very definitely anti bylaw else. Carlyle has raised about a 143000. Dollars since August and know her campaign comes senator about forty F 422000. Dollars. So that puts are about 85000 someplace in thereof behind Kenny Smith will 85000 bucks in this market will be a lot of by a lot of radio and TV time. And without money that he carried into the mayoral race Smith has spent about 538000. Dollars much of it on TV advertising. And Lyle hasn't run any ads on TV yet. Saw I don't know exactly what she's spending her money on. But maybe she save and had to. To do a big final push which if I was the candidate I think that's probably what I do. Smith's report shows that he is spent 347000. Dollars with victory enterprises which is a media and consulting firm based out Iowa. His top consultant is a guy by the name of Steve Michael. Who is failed vice president of a victory enterprises and marked not for is a Republican strategist also works for victory enterprises and heads an independent expenditure called forward Charlotte. And records show that this group forward Charlotte. Which is a group of unidentified concerned citizens love that phrase when they're unidentified. And they have spent more than 161000 dollars so far on radio and digital ads attacking Lyles. And and those groups are required to operate independently of a campaign so long. A Smith is also had help from the North Carolina values coalition. And would not be so that if a Republican. Got. Elected mayor of Charlotte again. It used to be I mean you know McCrory one how many times around seven. And then we kind of went on. On the democratic Rampage but it but even when no the last time around when that when peacock. The only one Lowe lost by what 3700 votes or something like that so it's never been. I'm an absolute trouncing because you don't get that big turnout. Week from today we'll decide who our new mayor arisen now. And I would assume a Democrat would have an unbelievable. Advantage. But the polls say. Kenny Smith dessert is right there with her. So also were all of that goes at. King hand. Normal hours from now that amid hill they're doing haunted me is. Six to 9 PM as a benefit of fund raiser for kids first yeah I saw my thanks to them for doing that I think it's the first fund raiser that's being held. For a kid's first this year. And it is that 10100115. Grand Junction road in mint hill have no idea where that is but six to 9 PM tonight is. Is where the middle hornet may as well take place. On non on not Halloween.

Somebody is a joke put out saw a picture this last night on the Internet. Dole's miniature bagged salads. And they're really tiny and stuff can you imagine a video embedded now palladium it. We'll forget elated that through the cookie in your bigger bag and you had deleted them through the apple and the broken cookies. What it what how much toilet papered as the house did you feel miniature salad yet. Mod date number July all the man afford gate. So Mueller probe us speculation. Hillary. Podesta. Huckabee Sanders. George pop it up all of us. Listen in to blow this morning George pop it up list that was the adopted father of Webster is that the he was playing the thing in this morning Deborah watched enough Webster to. To know that that's what it wasn't always told me. I questions in gas contacts for a modern man referred new. And kites and delegates and now full coverage of the whole thing the indictments the special counsel Robert Mueller the George pop it up almost pleading it was all over the TV last night. Nom following. The some of the statements that I saw from congress and information on. Amanda Fritz connection to prominent democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta. Along with questions and guess contacts and by above all blown. Paul Ryan said this is what Bob Mueller was tasked to do. I GOP senator Roy Blunt. If you have a limited time on London money in unlimited skull open your prosecutor your going to wind wind up. Indicting somebody personal thing and we'll just have to see where that leads to and that's exact close quote that's exactly right that's kind of where we are. Everybody else's just filling time that they have too much though because of the news channels. If you have to concise zero news to thirty minutes then you don't necessarily have to go hog wild on speculation and and fox on this morning. And they just keep going under these panels were laboring on three and four people the same time was generally ends up with three or four people talking over the top of each other and I just several short patience for the GOP senator John Goran said that really is an hour job I don't see how the indictment judge changed the president's ability to do his job. There is a process for this to go forward and I trust that that will happen. I GOP senator John Kennedy said trump administration to gender should go forward and we can multitask. Stating most Americans do and I don't see why we can't. Lindsey Graham. Who was actually scheduled to play golf with the president. Sunday or yesterday they got rained out. And grams can uninteresting because. He's not always on the president's side better apparel he plays golf with the president from time to time. Lindsay. Anyway he says there will be holy hell to pay if Mueller gets so fired. And the White House says said that's not even being talked about and a pardon for a man referred and gates and that's not even being talked about. And I mean that that's true it just does what everybody say and the pretty matter of fact about it. Democratic representative Adam Schiff part of the pattern of people affiliated with the trump campaign lying about their connections with the Russians. At some point you have to ask. Why all the deception. Now there's a guy who it's not looking at the entire picture because you have both sides. And only seem to look at the side of the story that bests. Suits their needs just like those of you who will only watch one network. Or find only web sites that support what you want to bully if you're not after information New York after her. Affirmation. Tony Podesta Mueller's investigation now above matter efforts if announces found out that. That one of several firms paid as part of a PR campaign that he organized on behalf of a nonprofit. Promoting Ukraine in the United States that also benefited Ukraine political party that he advised bush the Podesta group. So there you go mr. shelf democratic representative. That's over on your side of the court the content company is headed by the prominent democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta the brother of the former campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton John Podesta. The investor group claimed in April that it had believed its client was say a European think tank on connected to a political party. Tony Podesta said yesterday. He was stepping down to avoid further involving the firm in the controversy. One of the more interesting articles come down and I heard rush talking about this briefly today was the speculation on actually what's going on in the White House. And as they paint a picture of of the president at home with the TV on fuming. Over the Russia indictments. I'm but. And it's and it makes it they didn't seem to raid I don't know whether there's any truth to it or not I don't know. But it's it's like re no good novel. You can get a really interesting picture in your in your head woke up dawn dawn on Monday. To wait for the Russia bombshell he knew was coming. This is on MSN dot com. Trump clicked on the television spent the morning playing fuming media critic legal analyst and crisis communications strategist according to several people close to him. Some lobbyist talking to the press. President digested the news of the first indictment signed a special counsel Robert S Mueller's. Pro boot with exasperation and disgust. Called his lawyers repeatedly. Listened intently to cable news commentary. Rising irritation he watched live footage of one of his campaign advisors and confidant Paul man afford turn himself into the FBI. Story goes on to say he cheered that the charges against man referred and his deputy Rick gates were focused primarily on activities that began before his campaign. He tweeted it 10:28 AM there is no collusion. Celebration was short lived says this article which was written. Then. Looking for an author here. Must be a staff. Composite. Celebration was short lived few minutes later documents were unsealed showing George pop it up plus unpaid foreign policy advisor on Trump's campaign pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI. About his efforts to broker relationship between trump. And Russian president Vladimir Putin the case proves. Our provides gives me the case provides the clearest evidence yet of links between Trump's campaign. And Russian officials wryly. I don't think that's been proven yet. It could be eight. There's also speculation that puppet Koppel is may have worn a wire at the meetings. At stud that that's one of the stories that came out today. A new worry for trump team did advise or tape them. Well. What what do they what if they did it and there's nothing there are. Events that did did this this was the story that was. Other Randall this morning. George pop it up close is called a pro active coal operator. But though that meaning is unclear. Com. Campaign caught up the in the Robert I Miller investigation. Pop and topless admits lying to the FBI about his outreach strong Russian individuals in a bid to get dirt on Hillary Clinton several stories say that pop it up close wore a wire is part of his cooperation. In order to get a more lenient sentence. We know that no we don't. White House chief of staff John F killing Kelly. Along with lawyers Ty Cobb John Dowd G. I'm sure amber and butcher and his name. Advice from to be cautious where this public responses that. They are over. They are private sounding board for his career it's this this this is the account back to MSN about what went on in the White House anyway at eight Dave makes for interesting reading. And Nene and does it gives you visual you can see him up there are enough watching the TV watching all the cable channels and screaming at the commentators and well and no soul and so forth. But this is word to me is where the press is at its worse this is our reporting fact this is speculating on speculation. Because they have to because they got column inches to fill because they got Internet. To keep fresh because people don't keep on going into your Internet site if you just keep on post in the same thing. Asked the Charlotte Observer. Court documents highlighted by Brad Heath of USA today labeled opened up pop accomplices a proactive co operator. The documents don't spell out what pop it up bullets did to earn that title proactive cooperate or. But one possible implication. Is that mr. pop doubtless was has recently warning wiring conversations with other former campaign officials. That was written men. The New York Times. Who has had a steady litany of whatever they can find whether. Real or imagined along with the Washington Post and CNN against this president from day one. This will surely have members of Trump's inner circle agonizing. About the possibility or wondering who else might have been no similar a similarly cooperating. With the investigation. Or not. Because if they don't have anything to hide it. If this whole dossier is just day. Fabricated document that was led to deceive. If they've got Mueller on a wild goose chase. And maybe they don't maybe they don't. But at this point all of the stuff that's being written. It is or it is being used the stuff of a novel. It's not backed up with any. Solid fact. It's not backed up with. It's not even backed up with sources say. Much less an actual name. They say the plea agreement for pop it topless has three catch key sections. The first details the advisors communication with the professor claiming to have Clinton related emails. The second refers to an email forwarded by pop it up ballistic campaign staffers promising cooperation from the Russians in the third. Is a subsequent phone call between pop it up close and a campaign supervisor. So if there's a smoking gun lurking somewhere. It likely will emerge from those three exchanges with pop and topple us. But again. That's just speculation. There's no hard core fact we'll let effect. Tries Dick had a suss out how the important. Rolla pop and novelist played in the uniform policy advisor and they say one interesting point is. There is some evidence to support the argument that pop accomplice was freelancing. By pushing the Russian connection. But if you listen to the press conference yesterday. He was a minor bit player now maybe that's true maybe that's not. But anyway that's where we are right now I and you know that that's what this is gonna do and the fact of the matter is is that the pop it up listening. He's a thirty year old liar and where that leads we don't know yet. That is probably more damning or if there is something to hide that probably has longer tentacles on it in the Mueller thing. And number eight and have been in because in the gays thing. Because that primarily was. Aware what was done before the campaign there and some other leaks over into the other side. And and and that the man affording gates thing that's just walk into guys into a corner opened at they'll come out and say something. That will prove beneficial to get the president. But they don't have him today. Through eight games this year Benjamin has 32 receptions 475. Yards two touchdowns. Hi guys scored one of them against Tampa Bay last week. But according to. All sources at this point bench after I think go began it Kevin Kelvin Benjamin has been traded to the Buffalo Bills and in return we get a third. And a seventh round draft pick next year. So what trade deadline. Was at 4 o'clock this afternoon so anybody that was gonna reduce anything. Curator Rob Lowe went to the 49ers last night and the running back got out. I'll Miami. Josh beer whatever his name is went to and Philadelphia Eagles last night. And jury asked the defensive tackle ended up to in Jacksonville. I think out of buffalo solo some of the delayed but Kelvin Benjamin is now Buffalo Bill no we've got a third to seventh to add to next year's draft. 304. Days. He didn't hear twenty to seventeen there are 61. Days to go what is that 55 to Christians. I gave 26 magician Harry Houdini died of complications from a ruptured appendix. 199.
