Chuck Brooks' column: Chuck faces 60 with a rhyme in mind
Now that we’re in December, I hope you’re in the holiday mood. If anyone is wondering, time goes even faster during retirement than it did when I was teaching. How does that happen? Next week is a landmark week for me. I will be turning 60. I never — let me repeat — I NEVER...

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...

Bill Droste's column: Many groups make Rosemount better
We’re at the time of the year to take stock of where we are. And I believe almost all of us will find something — probably, many things — to be thankful for this holiday. As I mentioned in my previous column, we can thank the farmers in Rosemount and beyond for an abundance...

Chuck Brooks' column: Celebrating a great community band
Happy Thanksgiving! Can you believe it’s already time for parades and all-day football games, to say nothing of turkeys and stuffing and all the fixin’s? This is definitely one of my favorite holidays, because it seems to officially mark the beginning of the holiday season. I...

Nathan Hansen's column: Don’t be a holiday loser
Thanksgiving is next week, which means as far as most retailers are concerned if you don’t have your Christmas shopping at least 96 percent done you are basically human garbage. A monster unfit to have contact with other human beings for fear you will turn them into child pornographers...

Abby Linnett's column: Bring on the snow
For most of you, November is probably one of the worst months of the year. Up until this point, Minnesota weather is usually tolerable, even nice. But even though we are all supposed to have that tough Minnesota blood to keep us warm through the five — no, let’s see, more like...

Chuck Brooks' column: Willy sets the record straight
“Actually, I’ve always wondered what he does when I’m sleeping…” That’s the million dollar question, isn’t it. Bwahahahaha … little does he know. Before I’m perceived as being rude, I should probably introduce myself. I’m Willy. Chuck’s cat. Yup. A fantastic...

Chuck Brooks' Column: To tree or not to tree? The cat is the question
Now that I’m retired and in my home much more, I finally have a chance to do for my house what I’d really like to regarding Christmas decorations. And as I told you last week, the Christmas season is alive and well in my humble abode on multiple levels. For so many years, I always...

Nathan Hansen's Column: Is that a phone in your pocket?
I bought a new cellular telephone last week. I call it that because that’s what custom dictates, and not because the name makes any real-world sense anymore. I’m as likely to use my phone to make or receive calls as I am to use my underpants as a sail on a toy boat. Which is...

City Notes: Farming is still big in Rosemount
As much as Rosemount has grown in the last few decades, there’s one quality that has remained unchanged: you don’t have to go far from any of our residential neighborhoods to see farm fields. Even today, more than nine-thousand acres of the city are zoned for agriculture. That’s...

Faith Notes: Let Jesus be your life preserver
“Superior, they said, never gives up her dead. When the gales of November come early.” And so goes the story of “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald is probably the most recognized ship disaster of the Great Lakes, due in large part to...

Abby Linnett's Column: Wisdom of the ages
For the last few weeks, my friend and I have been spending every Tuesday afternoon at the Apple Valley Senior Center. We have been observing a watercolor painting group for a school project. What started off as a simple assignment became more than that after we spent the time to...

Nathan Hansen's Column: Let’s all go back to The Barn
There are some big things going on these days in the world of professional sports. As I write this, the Kansas City Royals are in the process of winning their first World Series title in 30 years. That’s a big deal for people who like sports that feature significant amounts of...

Chuck Brooks' Column: November’s here; bring on the Christmas cheer
Let’s get honest from the start here. If you’ve followed me over the years here, you know I’m a Christmas fanatic. No one will ever change that. Alleluia! I suspect it was Mom’s doing. She loved Christmas too. Although, she may have rolled her eyes at my early observation...

Chuck Brooks' Column: Lots of Halloween movie memories
October 22, 2015. Probably the final nice autumn day as November is knocking at the door. This is the day on which I’m writing this week’s conversation. For a change of scenery, I decided to drive to Northfield, find a little coffee shop, and create. So, if you’re ready, let’s...
