MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From a public hearing on earned sick leave in Minneapolis to an annual garage sale by hall of famer Bud Grant, here are the four stories to know for Wednesday, May 18.

Public Hearing For Earned Sick Leave

You can weigh in on a proposal for earned sick leave in the City of Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis City Council will hold a public hearing at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.

The proposed ordinance would require most businesses to provide 48 hours a year of paid sick leave.

Before the hearing, at 2:15 p.m., some workers and business owners will hold a rally to say they support the proposal.

Face To Facebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg meets privately with conservative leaders amid claims the social networking site is biased.

The website Gizmodo reported Facebook workers often left out conservative stories — even if they were trending.

Zuckerberg denies that and says he hopes to have a direct conversation Wednesday about what the site stands for.

Bud Grant Sale

Two days before his 89th birthday, Hall of Fame coach Bud Grant is inviting Vikings fans back to his home in Bloomington for his annual garage sale.

It runs from 5 p.m. until 8 pm. Wednesday night, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Thursday, and 8 a.m. until noon on Friday. He’ll be selling everything from jerseys to movies, but he has one request: no early birds!

Impressive Winds On Mount Washington

It’s been a windy couple of days in New England, but nothing compared to the scene on Mount Washington Monday.

A weather researcher was literally blown over as wind gusts reached 109 miles per hour.

Mount Washington is no stranger to extreme winds. It still holds the record for the strongest wind gust ever observed by a human at 231 miles per hour.
