Chuck Brooks' column: A special Christmas visit
Hi again. I can’t believe the last time we chatted, the holidays were about to occur. And now, by the time you receive this, it will be one month from Valentine’s Day. If you didn’t know that was the next holiday of “importance,” you haven’t been in Target. It was brought...

Nathan Hansen's column: You expected something different?
I have never claimed to be a serious Minnesota Vikings fan, and now I know for sure I’m not. I know because I didn’t spend the majority of my Sunday afternoon curled up on the floor shouting placekicker-centric curses at the heavens. I watched the Vikings play in the first round...

Dan Oberer's column: How much do you owe?
With Thanksgiving all finished and all the leftovers consumed and with Christmas recently celebrated and everything opened there is one thing that arrives now that we get to deal with — the bills. According to the American Consumer Credit Council, the average American spends $935...

City column: 2015 was a good year in Rosemount
The holidays are a time for contemplation as well as celebration. And this week I’ve been thinking about the progress we’ve seen in the city of Rosemount in 2015. This was the year our community received national recognition from Money magazine, which ranked Rosemount the 12th...

Abby Linnett column: Big things are ahead
As 2015 comes to a close, it’s a good point for me to reflect on this last year and look forward to the year to come. As a senior in high school, this next year is a turning point in my life. If all goes to plan, I will graduate high school, say goodbye to all the people I have...

Nathan Hansen's column: Today I am filled with the Force
I need you to know I’m writing this week’s column under protest. It’s not anything you did. I’m not opposed to bringing this moment of, modestly speaking, world-class entertainment into your lives each week. I know how you look forward to it. It’s just that every minute...

Chuck Brooks' column: Christmas is alive in Rosemount
Well, folks, this week marks the end of the Christmas columns again until November of 2016. I am saddened at the swiftness of the season, but we’re used to that by now, aren’t we? After this week, I’ve decided to take a break from the column for two weeks, so look for me once...

John Kline's column: All children deserve great education
After years of congressional delay and executive overreach, Congress has finally replaced No Child Left Behind! Earlier this month, the House and Senate both passed — in an overwhelming bipartisan manner — the Every Student Succeeds Act. On Dec. 10, I was pleased to join Republicans...

Chuck Brooks' column: Christmas magic endures
What is it about the feelings Christmas evokes which keeps it from changing like the rest of life seems to have done? I grant you Christmas is overly commercialized. No one will argue that. Since there’s nothing we can do about it, most people still seem to jump into the Yuletide...

Nathan Hansen's column: Hey Siri, what did you call me?
I read something the other day that claimed asking someone if they are pregnant is a form of fat shaming. Shaming is a big thing these days, and it’s not always well defined. If someone asks me if I play basketball, are they height shaming me? That’s ridiculous, obviously. My...

Abby Linnett's column: Hitting the skids
During the winter, my sisters and I load up our horses go to my trainer’s indoor arena for weekly lessons. Last weekend, we hooked up our old green trailer to my half-ton truck, loaded up two of our horses and went on our way. My trainer’s barn is only about five minutes from...

Chuck Brooks' column: Christmas season brings many memories
I love writing this column during December. It takes me back to my childhood during the holiday season, and I know of nothing that ever happened during those years that would be a negative memory for me. A television station apparently sees the merits of going back in time to air...

Nathan Hansen's column: I’m going to get fat this winter
There used to be a rhythm to my biking season. When the roads were free of ice, I would ride my bike outside, and when the roads became unfriendly to skinny-tired cycling, I would put my bike away. Sometimes it would take until the end of December for the ice to come, but it always...

Abby Linnett's column: The holidays sure are weird
‘Tis the start of the holiday season, and I love the holidays. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are some of the best days of the year! Taking the time out of my busy schedule to spend time with family and friends over wonderful food — what could be better? My family has...

Nathan Hansen's column: I hope you all stayed safe
I worried last week, friends. As some of the most dedicated readers of this column might have noticed, there was something else in this space a week ago, and while there was a perfectly innocent reason for my absence — we simply had an abundance of other quality material for the...
