4 Things To Know: Nurses Return To Work, Terror Plot & More

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Here’s a look at the four things you need to know for Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016.

Number One: Allina Nurses Return To Work

The striking nurses at five Allina hospitals are slated to be back on their jobs.

On Thursday, the majority of the Minnesota Nurses Association voted to approve the latest contract offer ending a nearly six-week strike.

Number Two: Anti-Muslim Terror Plot

Three members of an anti-Muslim group in Kansas are charged with plotting to kill Somali immigrants.

Prosecutors say the men planned to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, that is home to Somali immigrant families.

Prosecutors say the men are part of a militia group that calls itself “The Crusaders.”

Number 3: Wild Honor Wetterling Family

The Minnesota Wild honored the memory of Jacob Wetterling at Saturday night’s home opener.

The team honored the Wetterling family before the game with jerseys that displayed the number 11 in Jacob’s honor.

He was kidnapped from his hometown of St. Joseph 27 years ago. His remains were found just last month.

Number Four: Highway 12 Bypass Closing

Expect major delays in the west metro for the next three weeks.

At midnight, the Highway 12 bypass around Long Lake is closing so workers can install a concrete-median.
