Bill Droste: We are thankful for the volunteers of Rosemount
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...

Chuck Brooks: A host of things to be thankful for
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...

Kim Ukura: On renovations and refreshing your spaces
I've spent most of my free time in the last four weeks doing home renovations. In late October, I moved into a lovely, split-level townhome with my sister, Jenny. It's set up perfectly for two people — she's setting up on the top level, and I'm settling in on the ground floor....

Chuck Brooks: Rivalries on football Sundays, then and now
Being a Packer fan in this state is, at best, difficult. Ironically, when I moved here in July of 1982, I had no passion for any sports. Any. Never. I was the third boy of three kids in a house back in Wisconsin. My oldest brother is seven years older and the next brother is five...

Emily Piper: Nearly 500 Minnesota children are waiting for homes
Think of your kids, nieces or nephews or other young people in your life and then think of what they need each day to grow into great adults: care, guidance, stability and unconditional love. Hundreds of children in Minnesota are waiting for families to give them just that.

Amy Klobuchar: On Veterans Day and every day, honoring service
Every year, right after Election Day, we gather to honor our veterans. But this year's election was unlike many others. It was contentious. It got ugly. It even tested the bounds of our democracy. So, here we are. On the other side. And after so much focus on what divides us, today...

Chuck Brooks: The political circus has ended, but Christmas is ramping up
I am writing this 48 hours before what may be the biggest presidential election in this country's history. It's an election that has divided this country in two. One would think it might be the biggest turnout at the polls ever known to America. There are three camps: His, Hers and...

Deanna Weniger: Six survival tips for home parties
It's that time of year. The leaves are falling, the pumpkin spice is flowing and the home parties are calling. Wanna buy some Tupperware? How about some jewelry? Essential oils? Fancy bags? Kitchen gadgets? Women, who may turn down these invitations in April, fall for them in October...

Chuck Brooks: ‘Upgrading’ my education and playing the organ
When I was discussing my "scary" movies with you a few weeks ago, and the title of "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" entered the dialogue, I began to think about something I hadn't thought about for a long time. That, in turn, sent me in the direction of this week's topic.

Chuck Brooks: Celebrating 100 years of students in a new book
You may begin to question if I'm losing it because this week's topic is somewhat repetitious. However, let me assure you: I lost my mind about year 27 of teaching. I am fully aware of what I'm doing this week. It's just that we've reached the end of October, and I want to share more...

Bill Droste: Season of giving starts with Haunted Woods Trail
Even with this year's extended warm weather, our temperatures are sure to fall to the point that it takes a little bit of motivation to go outside. But it keeps the community strong to have events that bring our residents together and that invite visitors at any time of year. Our...

Letter: Consider Heidi Freske for city council
My husband and I recently built a home in Rosemount. We chose Rosemount to raise our children because of the emerging population of people like us; business professionals with young children. Schools are nationally ranked and we are a drive away from businesses and amenities that...

Letter: Holly Jenkins shows up to make a difference
Last August, I attended packed meetings in St. Paul where Met Council members unanimously voted in favor of the Dakota County Board’s unpopular Lebanon Hills Plan which would compromise the future of this beloved park. All people were asking during two lengthy meetings was to return...

Forum Communications Endorsement: This time for president, none of the above
For the first time in more than half a century, Forum Communications Co. declines to endorse the Republican candidate for president of the United States. It does not follow, however, that the endorsement goes to the Democratic candidate. This year, we suggest none of the above is...

Letter: Youth in politics
As a high school senior, I have noticed that very few youth are getting involved in politics. I am only 17 years old and, unfortunately, will not be able to vote in the upcoming election. However, voting is not the only way for me to make a difference in politics. This past year I...
