4 Things To Know: Nurses’ Vote, Richard Nixon Presidential Library, Lynx & More

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – From an end to the nurses’ strike to Game 3 for the Minnesota Lynx in the WNBA finals, here is a look at the top four stories from Oct. 14, 2016.

End To Nurses’ Strike Near

After nearly 40 days, the Allina nurses’ strike is coming to an end.

Members of the Minnesota Nurses Association voted Thursday to accept a contract offer from Allina Health.

Around 4,800 nurses from five Twin Cities hospitals were involved in the strike, which officially ends 7 a.m. Sunday. Nurses will then return to work.

Airlines Add Fire Suppression Equipment

Some airlines are adding fire suppression equipment to their flights.

The move is to protect passengers from exploding tablets and cell phones that may contain lithium ion batteries. This comes as Samsung issued a recall and permanent halt on production of the Galaxy Note 7 for overheating problems.

Alaska, Delta and Virgin will use fire containment bags to help combat the threat.

Richard Nixon Presidential Library Reopens

The troubled life of Richard Nixon gets a new look.

On Friday, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum reopens with a $15-million makeover in Yorba Linda, California. It includes large photographs, interactive touchscreens and video of Nixon’s speeches.

The museum is designed to bring Nixon to life for younger generations who don’t remember Watergate or his trip to China.

Let’s Go Lynx!

The Minnesota Lynx are in Los Angeles to take on the Sparks in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals.

The best of five series is tied at one game a-piece after Minnesota won Game 2, 79 to 60. The Lynx are hoping to win their fourth championship in six seasons.

Game time is at 8 p.m.
