Pushers busted, neighbors delighted

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

Tonight at 11:00 we sent our Steve Crump to hear from people delighted that 19 alleged drug pushers were taken off the streets of their neighborhood. And even better news-- those arrested will face federal charges which carry much stiffer sentences.

Here's a Halloween warning for parents, and it has nothing to do with tainted candy or stranger danger. Statistics show kids are twice as likely to be hit by cars on Halloween as on any other night of the year. We're talking to police about what they recommend to keep your kids out of holiday jeopardy.

A blind Charlotte man was told he couldn't bring his seeing-eye-dog onto a city bus. But the city wasn't Charlotte. It was Greensboro. And the driver threatened to call a security guard if the blind man and his dog didn't exit the bus. City officials have since intervened, saying the bus driver was new and should have known better.

And if it's not raining leaves, it will soon be just raining as we get closer to Halloween. Eric Thomas is looking at how close those showers might come to spoiling trick-or-treat night.

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham and me tonight for WBTV News at 11:00!
