4 Things To Know: Nurses To Vote, Peres Laid To Rest, WNBA Playoffs & More

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – From the funeral former Israeli President Shimon Peres to the WNBA playoffs, here is a look at the top four stories from Sept. 30, 2016.

Union Nurses To Vote

Union nurses will vote on Allina Health’s latest proposal, which could mean an end to the nearly four-week strike.

The Minnesota Nurses Association said a vote will happen on Monday.

If passed by a majority, the association will meet with Allina to execute a strike settlement agreement.

If it’s voted down, the Minnesota Nurses Association said the strike will continue and negotiations would take place at a later date.

Shimon Peres Laid To Rest

World leaders are in Jerusalem celebrating the life of former Israeli President Shimon Peres.

Thousands of people gathered at the country’s parliament Thursday to pay their respects to the late leader. The 93-year-old died Wednesday, two weeks after suffering a major stroke.

The Black Moon Rises

A rare black moon will rise Friday, but you won’t actually see it.

Similar to a blue moon, a black moon is the second new moon of the month and comes around about once every 32 months.

It’ll happen at 7:11 p.m.

Lynx Take The Court In 2nd Semifinal Game Against Mercury

The Xcel Energy Center will host Game Two of the WNBA playoffs.

The Lynx will take on the Phoenix Mercury. On Wednesday, Minnesota beat Phoenix 113 to 95.

The series is best of five so with the win, the Lynx would only need one more to move onto the finals.

Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
