Chuck Brooks: 'I Can't Wait': A Christmas story (The Conclusion)
It was an old shoebox. He was not sure he wanted to see what "memorabilia" he had acquired during the years he couldn't remember having lived. As he lifted the lid, he was surprised to see it was empty except for an envelope, lying facedown, that looked like it housed a typical-sized...

Chuck Brooks: 'I Can't Wait': A Christmas story (Part IV)
His sister sounded...well, old. But she still had an unmistakable quality in her greeting. "Bea?" "Well, who did you think it was? Mrs. Claus? How are you on this Christmas Eve morning, your favorite day of the year?" When Adam went to bed the night before, it was Dec. 23,...

Deanna Weniger: On roads paved with good intentions
They say the way to hell is paved with good intentions. If that's the case, I've crested the hill and am in a spiritual free fall toward eternal damnation. For those of you concerned about my immortal soul, fear not. I've been more purposeful in my preparation than I'm letting on....

Joe Atkins: A look back at Dakota County in 2016
As I went door-to-door in Rosemount this fall in my run for Dakota County Commissioner, the most frequent question I heard from voters was "What does the county do?" Below are some things Dakota County did in 2016. • Became debt-free. Dakota County became the only metro county —...

Chuck Brooks: 'I Can't Wait': A Christmas story (Part III)
"What the..." Adam slowly approached the mirror. Feeling unsteady, he braced himself against the vanity. He examined his face like a cat examines the appearance of a Christmas tree into its world. "I have got to be dreaming," he whispered softly. As he took his right hand to his face,...

Chuck Books: 'I Can't Wait': A Christmas story
Hi. I'll make this quick. I only have so much space, and this is going to be the greatest challenge I've given myself with this column. In the next four weeks, you will read a Christmas-themed short story. I have two double-spaced pages maximum each week. That means I have to write...

Deanna Weniger: Fly birdie, fly, but parting is such sweet sorrow
You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. Similarly, you can lead a high school senior to the next big life choice, but you can't make him leap. However, you can push him. I'm currently in full-on, shoulder-to-the-wheel pushing mode, but my solid rock of a stubborn...

Letter: Credibility issues with Craig’s campaign ads
There is a serious credibility problem with some of Angie Craig's ads used during her campaign to be our 2nd Congressional District representative. To the informed voter, there has to be profound skepticism regarding the role of a gentleman named Gary Huusko, who played a big role...

For most of us, the holidays are a busy time of year. But they are also the perfect time to reflect on those who have helped us in the past year. Those of us in city government have many to thank. They contribute to the high quality of life in Rosemount. We always value the hard work...

It's that time once again for us all to take stock in what it is we're thankful for. It's good to be reminded once a year to take time out to count our blessings. Hopefully, you'll all be with those important people in your life. As for me, I'll be with my three brothers and sister...
