No. 2 - Former Miami Dolphins running back Mark Walton will be in a Broward County courtroom on Wednesday, one day after he was arrested on charges of punching his pregnant girlfriend in the head.

Police in Davie said in a report that officers went to a home at 4:15 a.m. Tuesday, where Walton’s girlfriend told them he had pushed her against the wall and punched her several times in the face and head, leaving her with a swollen left eye.

No. 3 - New billboards in Florida are causing some controversy as they are calling attention to the treatment of migrant children in the United States, including one just seven miles from the Homestead detention center.

A human rights organization put up the billboard ahead of World Children's Day, which is Wednesday.

No. 4 - Ambassador Gordon Sondland, the most anticipated witness in the impeachment inquiry, is likely to be unpredictable when he faces questions about his evolving accounts of the Trump administration's dealings with Ukraine and a newly revealed summertime phone call with President Donald Trump.

Sondland's appearance at Wednesday morning's hearing, and his closeness to Trump, is of particular concern to the White House as the historic impeachment inquiry reaches closer to the president.

No. 5 - Another case of dengue fever has been confirmed in Miami-Dade County.

The county is under a mosquito-borne illness alert after dengue fever was confirmed in a local resident, health officials said Tuesday. The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County said the county has had 11 local cases in 2019. This case appears to be unrelated with other cases.

No. 6 - The Republican Party of Florida is moving their biggest fundraiser of the year, with the keynote speaker being President Donald Trump, to Miami next month.

The party’s website says the event will be relocated from Orlando, where it was supposed to be held at Disney’s Grand Floridan Hotel, to Miami on December 7th. The website did not say where the event will be held.
