The Canterbury Park Hall of Fame Committee on Monday announced the class of 2015 inductees. The four newest Hall of Fame members, who will be honored in a Sept. 5 ceremony, include former jockey Tad Leggett, Star Tribune sports reporter Rachel Blount, state veterinarian Dr. Richard Bowman, and thoroughbred Wally’s Choice. The inductees join a group of more than 40 individuals and horses in the hall.
Both directions of County Road 101 will close from the intersection of County Road 69 in Shakopee to County Road 61 in Chanhassen from 6 p.m. Thursday through 9 a.m. Friday as construction crews perform the next deck pour on the new causeway bridge of the Southwest Reconnection Project.
A single fire sprinkler contained a dryer fire in the second floor laundry room at White Pines Apartments in Shakopee Sunday morning, and Fire Marshal Tom Pitschneider credited it with preventing a significant blaze that could have displaced several residents.
