Before Silicon Valley boomed or Bill Gates was even born, some of the first breakthroughs in the field of computer science were already taking place in Minnesota.
At its peak, the local computer industry produced technology that handled air traffic control at airports nationwide, processed data aboard U.S. Navy ships, assisted in NASA launches and revolutionized banking and commerce.
Over time, however, as the market shifted and tech hubs sprang up elsewhere in the country, Minnesota’s contributions to the field were largely forgotten by the public. The door effectively shut on those pioneering days with the closure of Lockheed Martin’s historic Eagan site in 2013.

The underpass would be part of the county’s Mendota/Lebanon Hills Greenway Master Plan, which is intended to connect parks and communities with a series of trails.

Hill-Murray to add 6th-grade program next fall

Competition for students among area private schools has just gotten a little tougher.
Hill-Murray School, located on Larpenteur Avenue in Maplewood, announced this November it will be adding sixth grade starting in the 2014-2015 school year. The Catholic-affiliated school has offered grades seventh-12th since the late 1980s.
In a letter sent to students’ families this fall, president Susan Paul explains the addition was something the Hill-Murray board of trustees “wrestled” with for a number of years.
