7:02 am
>> i didn't win the powerball so i'm here. >> there's one thing we do know for certain about the powerball. we know the three cities where those three tickets were sold, that much we do know, one of them printed right there, the publix supermarket in melbourne beach, florida. who bought it? we'll have more on that ahead. >> that strange story out of california. what a prank that was. pretty cruel. we'll get into that. that gop debate was a hot one. donald trump and ted cruz neck and neck two weeks ahead of the first votes in iowa and they went at it last night. the others fighting to break out and abc's tom llamas was there in charleston for all of it. morning to you. what a night. the two frontrunners going at it. senator ted cruz accusing donald trump of manufacturing a birther controversy because they're locked in a dead heat in iowa and trump saying there's a
7:03 am
with senator cruz. overnight, a clash of titans at the republican debate. donald trump and senator ted cruz once allies rumbling on stage. >> there's a big question mark on your head. >> reporter: trump ordering cruz to get a court order to show he's eligible to run for president since cruz was born in cruz painting trump as a natural born politician. >> you know, back in september, my friend donald said he had had his lawyers look at this from every which way and there was no issue there. the constitution hasn't changed. but the poll numbers have. >> reporter: cruz saying extreme eliminate several candidates, even trump. >> donald's mother was born in scotland. she was naturalized. now donald -- >> but i was born here. >> reporter: some candidates growing frustrated. >> i hate to interrupt this >> reporter: senator rubio christie over his record in new
7:04 am
>> unfortunately, governor the ideas that barack obama supports. >> christie not letting rubio interrupt him. >> you had your chance. you blew it. >> reporter: all the republicans taking shots at hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton would be a national security disaster. >> hillary clinton cannot be president. >> if we elect hillary clinton the next four years will be worse than the last eight. >> reporter: but cruz and trump weren't done later fighting over cruz saying trump embodies new york values. >> there are many, many wonderful, wonderful working men and women in the state of new york. but everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal. >> reporter: trump taking that personally and invoking 9/11. everybody in this world loved new york and loved new yorkers and i have to tell you that was an insulting statement that ted made. spoke with trump who told me he
7:05 am
get so heated were you surprised at how hard he hit you. >> i was a little bit surprised and i think we hit him back much harder. >> reporter: after the debate i asked donald trump if he's going to change his strategy before the iowa caucuses. he says he's not but going to spend more time in the hawkeye state. all the candidates will get anotheren shot in two weeks before the voting starts. george. >> okay, tom, thanks. let's talk about this more with jon karl in south carolina for us and republican pollster kristen soltis anderson a columnist for "the washington examiner." john let me begin with you. trump said after the debate the bromance is over with ted cruz. who got the better of it? >> reporter: well, look, both of them, cruz and trump had their best debates of the campaign. they dominated this debate but trump clearly came out on top. his response to the new york values attack from cruz was so effective that cruz was actually applauding him and even that exchange on cruz's citizenship. you could argue that cruz won the exchange but look what they were debating, george.
7:06 am
not ted cruz is eligible to be president. that's a debate that donald trump wants to have. it's certainly not a debate that ted cruz wants to have. >> kristen, you thought ted cruz won. >> i thought he did because i think he rattled donald trump. donald trump's not someone who rattles easily but when cruz brought up the fact that donald trump's mother wasn't born in the united states, of course, that's irrelevant when it comes to the constitutionality of trump's campaign. but it did seem to throw him off his heels a little bit and you saw that this is the ted cruz who is a national debate champion in college. this is the ted cruz that came out to play last night. >> jon, at times the others seemed to struggle to get in a word during the debate but marco rubio really unleashed a barrage on cruz right at the end of the debate. >> reporter: he sure did. clearly marco rubio has calculated that he is not going to be able to beat donald trump unless he is first able to destroy ted cruz. they went back and forth at it. i think that that's the
7:07 am
going into iowa. but, george, even on that score i think you could argue trump won because while they were emerged from this debate largely unscathed. >> meantime, hillary clinton on late night tv last night. here she was with jimmy fallon. >> he does have a running commentary. we both do. could you believe what he just said? >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> what does that mean? i have no idea. yeah, we have an ongoing dialogue about it. >> that was her talking about how she watches debates with her husband former president bill clinton but, kristen, one of the things the republicans are salivating about is this cage match between bernie sanders and hillary clinton with him leading in iowa and new hampshire. >> you're right. if you take a look at the polls hillary clinton's decline or the decline of her lead looks about as dramatic as the decline in her lead looked eight years ago. are we seeing a rerun of the same movie because while hillary clinton gets certain piece of the side there are pieces from
7:08 am
flocking to bernie sanders. particularly younger voters. first time caucusgoers and there has to be nervousness in the clinton camp. are we seeing a rerun of eight years ago. >> kristen, jon, thanks very much. over to robin. >> i know you'll be there this week on sunday and we'll be watching. thank you. now to breaking news, reports just coming in of two military helicopters colliding off the coast of hawaii. the search for survivors under way and abc's gloria riviera has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, robin. here's what we know now. the coast guard has dispatched a helicopter and planes after reports there was a downed aircraft off of haleiwa, hawaii. cruise found debris in the water and personnel. a possible collision between two marine corps helicopters, but this is not yet confirmed and we do not know at this time if responders are searching for survivors two miles off the coast of haleiwa. the latest on that powerball
7:09 am
there are questions swirling this morning about a reported winner in california that now looks like a hoax. and abc's kayna whitworth is tracking it all from pomona, california. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning. so, a joke that a lot don't think is very funny. we rushed here to this nursing facility last night hoping to find a new multimillionaire. instead, finding more questions than answers. at first, it sounded like the perfect ending to a hollywood >> somebody won the lotto. >> reporter: a mother of seven and a nurse at a california nursing home drawing one of the three winning powerball tickets after her boss doled out 18,000 to his staff and residents. but now the nurse's family telling abc news it may all be a prank instigated by the nurse's son. times" this is one big misunderstanding. the boss who bought the tickets shlomo rechnitz believes the nurse may be the real winner but
7:10 am
amid public scrutiny. >> if this was a prank done by her son it's somewhat detestable. >> reporter: meanwhile, the race is on for the identity of the other two winners. in melbourne, florida, the media swarmed this home after reports that one of the winners may work at the publix where the winning numbers were purchased. and in munford, tennessee, home of the third powerball winner dana naifeh owns this store who sold the winning ticket. he gets a payout of $25,000 for meanwhile, in chino hills, california, 7-eleven owner balbir atwal received a million dollar check for selling the winning ticket. they have a group text going. one nurse even claiming she saw the winning ticket. but as of this morning the winner just yet.
7:11 am
>> oh, okay, kayna. fake, doctored winning powerball tickets that are going around like this guy. travis chaney posting on facebook nice knowing everyone. i'm buying an island and you can see that it's photoshopped because the numbers are not in numeric order going up so that was a clue -- >> pretty big clue. >> and we will have much more on the powerball tonight. it's a special "20/20" here on abc. >> okay, robin, we turn to that big storm targeting the east, a nor'easter taking aim from boston to washington and a lot of cold air behind it. >> this hurricane, alex, we'll try to get it all in right here. here's good news and bad news. for the southeast that low, big stormy rainy day all for florida, for georgia, a little bit the carolina, as well. the low drives up the coastline, this is the good news for the mid-atlantic and northeast over the weekend.

to say please and thank you but now some teachers are saying please has no place in the classroom. it's part of a new teaching method called no nonsense nurturing sparking quite a debate in north carolina. abc's linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: the movie "kindergarten cop" shows us how easily a classroom can get out of control. but the druid hills academy in charlotte, north carolina, is taking measures to prevent unruly behavior by implementing a unique technique called no nonsense nurturing. >> it's a way teachers and schools go about creating the culture and the conditions in which students thrive. >> reporter: proponents say it bowl sters collaboration and support. we saw firsthand in this sixth grade math class. >> what is y? go. >> before i would tell students
8:12 am
your warm-up. now with no nonsense warm-up, i say when i say go, i want you to walk into the classroom. grab your warm-up off the bookshelf. your voice is on zero. you will sit down in your classroom and complete your warm-up and you have five minutes to do that. >> reporter: and the word "please" is used very sparingly. >> what we're asking is not an option. it's an expectation. no one would say to you, will you come to work today, please. >> reporter: this program is used by 250 schools across the country and aims to create an environment that is structured and consistent for students, so what does this teacher hear from her students? >> they typically say, you know, we love miss alfred but she doesn't play. >> reporter: but reaction from parents is mixed. >> i don't agree with it point-blank, period. >> we'll try it and see how it works first. >> reporter: as for the teachers, they say the proof is in the positive results. >> it also reduces suspension and reduces the amount of time a student spends outside the classroom due to misbehavior because they have the opportunity to comply to your directions because you're specific. you're concrete. >> reporter: for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc
8:13 am
>> let's talk about this now. ericka souter, editor of is here. we just heard about the results. what do you think? >> well, my first thought was, there's something that seems nurturing about this program but if you take a look at communities or teachers dealing with very chaotic classrooms or maybe there are discipline problems at home that are carrying over into the classroom this can have a positive effect and that's what we saw a little bit in that video. but if you have kids who are not -- don't have those kind of problems, it can create an atmosphere of fear and anxiety and makes the classroom a tense situation. >> but it is trying to counter that everyone gets a trophy mentality. >> yeah, definitely. i'm a big fan of doing that when they're 2 and 3 and just being introduced to things and encouraging participation but when you get to 4 or 5, they really to start learning that you need to earn that praise and so this can go a long way in helping that kind of >> what do you think parents should take away from this and incorporate at home? >> well, every kid needs every kid needs structure and discipline.
8:14 am
you are putting rules in place and that they know that they have to follow those rules. but i don't see anything wrong with saying please and thank you. >> i think the first time you ask is a please, and if the child doesn't listen, it's i'm not going to ask you again. >> exactly. and forfeiting that doesn't mean you're giving up control. it just means you're teaching breeds respect in turn. >> i love what you just said there. it doesn't mean you're forfeiting control. >> not at all. >> by not saying that. i just -- i don't -- >> i know because you're all about manners. >> right. >> i am too. i agree but there is a time and place where, you know -- children crave -- >> structure. >> -- structure and control and knowing that they have somebody who's in control of the situation. to say please do this, they take advantage. >> maybe it's how you say please. >> it's not an option. still be polite. >> they know they have to do it and they have to follow rules
8:15 am
>> but i do appreciate that they are trying to do something, that they recognize there's a problem and trying -- it's a creative solution for them and if it's working for them -- >> right. we just want to make sure it doesn't discourage kids from asking for help if they need it or ask questions in a classroom. all those things are still important even if you need kids to follow the rules. >> a great discussion. >> let's go outside to sam. >> all right, everybody, so i thought i was walking out into times square, but apparently this is hickory, north carolina. everybody from hickory, raise your hand and wave. look at this. [ cheers and applause ] there is no one at home in hickory, north carolina. we're going to start with charleston, by the way, only because you have a little rain moving in. and because we had such a horrible october with rain, any rain in charleston is likely to kick off flood warnings so watch that low drive up the coastline. bad news for the southeast in the fact that there are very heavy storms. tampa, you're moments away from getting another line working in there. on the national map out west, we continue with that problem of rain although i got to tell you it is a lot of rain
