The NHL and their players association have reached an
agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement. There’s no word yet on when
the Nashville Predators will start the season or how many games will be played.
"We have to dot a lot of I's and cross a lot of T's.
There is still a lot of work to be done, but the basic framework has been
agreed upon. We have to go through a ratification process and the Board of
Governors has to approve it from the League side and, obviously, the players
have to approve it as well,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.
The deal was reached around 3:40 central time according to
NHL.com. The website also says the two sides reached the agreement after more
than 16 hours of negotiations.

Memphis libraries seeking funding
May 25, 2013 13:07 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The public library system in Memphis is hoping to secure $2.9 million to add employees and increase its collection.
The Memphis Daily News (http://bit.ly/19BANxH) reports the Memphis Public Library & Information Center cites the figures as part of its strategic plan.
A study by the Friends of the Library and the Memphis Library Foundation found that during the past five years, the system's budget has been cut 21 percent and hours were reduced 20 percent.
The goal of the new funding would be to add 47 employees to the 18-location library system and increase the collections budget to $2 million from less than $1 million.
Library director Keenon McCloy says the plan is a "roadmap for the future."
