President Trump is sending mixed messages on the coronavirus as the nation counts more than 200-thousand COVID-19 deaths. Trump told a packed, mostly maskless, campaign rally in Ohio yesterday the virus "affects virtually nobody" under the age of 18. Months ago, he told legendary journalist Bob Woodward the coronavirus does make young people sick.        Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham says Republicans have the votes to confirm President Trump's Supreme Court nominee before Election Day. Trump said Monday he'll announce his nominee to succeed the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg Friday or Saturday. Ginsburg died of pancreatic cancer this past Friday.        A lot of rain from Tropical Storm Beta is drenching south Texas as the storm moves inland. Beta made landfall Monday night and National Hurricane Center forecasters say more than a foot of rain could fall on some areas. A state of emergency is in effect for Louisiana and parts of Texas.        The Justice Department is identifying New York City, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon as"anarchist jurisdictions." Earlier this month President Trump asked Attorney General William Barr and the Office of Management and Budget to review federal funding for those cities.        Sizzler is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The restaurant chain known for its steaks and salad bar says it's lost millions because of the coronavirus pandemic and blames the restrictions that ban indoor dining in most of California.        NBA legend and Charlotte Hornets principal owner Michael Jordan and current NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin will co-own a car driven by rising star Bubba Wallace in the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series. Hamlin released a statement praising Wallace for his rising status in the sport and his voice for social change.
