The Dec. 5 death of actress Kirstie Alley brought back memories of her brief time in Waconia.

The two-time Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress, best known for her role as Rebecca Howe in the sitcom “Cheers,” also had a lead role in the 1999 movie “Drop Dead Gorgeous.” Many scenes from that dark comedy about a small-town beauty pageant that turns deadly were shot in Waconia.
