1. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are back on the campaign trail today, following what can only be described as one of the most bizarre presidential debates.

Tonight Clinton plans to hold an event at Ohio State University and Donald Trump's website states he will host a rally at Ambridge Area Senior High School.

The 2005 video capturing Trump talking about forcing himself on women may continue to haunt him, even though trump denied groping women at the debate last night. Instead, he said the comments were "just locker talk" and shifted the focus to former president Bill Clinton and the sexual allegations against him.

2. Flooding and devastation from Hurricane Matthew lingers along the east coast, after the storm moved out of the area.

Many cities in North Carolina are trying to dry out, but the heavy rains pushed rivers up to historic levels, which could lead to even more flooding.

Matthew is responsible for at least 17 deaths in the U.S.

3. ArtPrize 8 is officially over, with two new grand prize winners, each waking up $200,000 richer.

James Mellick won the public vote for his piece “Wounded Warrior Dogs.” The entry was made up of wooden sculptures of dogs with battle wounds.

Stacey Kirby's time-based entry, “The Bureau of Personal Belonging" won the juried grand prize. It was meant to open a dialogue about community, civil rights, and belonging.

More than 1,400 artists from around the world took part in this year's competition.

4. "Grease" star Olivia Newton-John is set to be in West Michigan today for a good cause.

The actress is expected to be in Grand Rapids to help raise awareness for breast and prostate cancer.

She's a survivor herself and created a self-exam device called "Liv AID.”

She will be at the cascade Meijer on 28th Street to promote new "Pink and Blue" wines. All the proceeds will go to cancer research.

If you want to meet her, just show up between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

5. It was a huge victory for the University of Michigan against Rutgers this past weekend, and that led to one Ann Arbor restaurant giving a deep discount to its customers.

Ruth's Chris steak house in Ann Arbor announced on Facebook that for the remainder of the season, customers would receive a percentage off their total food bill equal to the final winning point differential.

Michigan beat Rutgers 78 to nothing on Saturday, but the discount for customers won't be 78 percent. The promotions rules state the discount will be capped out at 50 percent.

But it’s still a great deal and the restaurant says it's completely booked through next week, when the offer expires.
