And, we’ll find out what steps authorities are taking to evacuate residents from the danger zone with Wrightsville Beach’s Police Chief John Carey and Lt. Hovey Pope, public information officer.

Why is California's recall race on hold? We’ll ask the man behind the lawsuit that brought the recall to a screeching halt Antonio Gonzalez, president of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, and Kenneth Gross, former Federal Election Commission attorney.

Is it right for public schools to let teens out of class to see a doctor, but then keep it secret from their parents?
