The Minnesota Renaissance Festival has called Shakopee home since 1974. The most recent festival season, which ran weekends from Aug. 16 through last Sunday, marked the festival’s 40th year at its iconic location.
Seven out of nine schools in the Shakopee School District saw an increase over last year's performance in their 2014 Multiple Measurement Ratings (MMR) released Wednesday by the Minnesota Department of Education.
Fall is breeding season for deer in Minnesota, and that means an animal’s date with a mate can turn deadly for deer and motorists. All motorists need to be alert because more deer are on the move — but motorcyclists are at the greatest risk.
Jury selection was underway Tuesday in the first-degree murder trial of Anthony James Cox, 22, of Minneapolis, who is charged in the shooting death of 32-year-old Aaron James Moran of Shakopee last Oct. 22. A Scott County grand jury indicted Cox on Dec. 5. He is also charged with two counts of second-degree murder.
