Editorial: Community on display at homecoming
The Farmington and Rosemount high school football teams played a game last Friday, and if all you looked at was the results on the field you would have missed a whole lot. The game was part of Farmington’s homecoming week, and it couldn’t have gone much worse for the Tigers....

Even in retirement, the RHS band festival calls
I must apologize at the start for you leading you astray at the end of last week’s meeting here. I told you we’d talk movies, books and television, but I totally forgot what this weekend is, and I just can NOT ignore this topic this year. This is the weekend of the 26th Rosemount...

Editorial: Get informed on school votes
There was an unsettling comment made Monday at a public meeting to discuss the Farmington School District’s upcoming levy and bond votes. During a discussion in which parents urged the district to do a better job of communicating the reasons for the votes, one participant suggested...

Editorial: Watch for kids with school under way
School is back in session this week in Farmington and Rosemount, which means students are out again in large numbers. They’re walking and biking to school and waiting for buses along city streets. That’s true these days more than ever. Schools have made an increased effort in...

Editorial: Fundraising for any kind of footwear
Who said doing good deeds had to be boring? There are three local opportunities in September to raise money for good causes, and all three give participants a chance to have fun while they’re giving back. So, dust off your cowboy boots, your running shoes or both and get out to...

Editorial: Expand fishing options on the Vermillion River
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is considering a change to fishing rules on the Vermillion River. They hope to draw more people to the aquatic and wildlife management areas near Farmington. We think it’s a great idea. The DNR has put a lot of time and effort...

Editorial: Mural is a reflection of community
It’s taken more than a year, a lot of paint and no small amount of patience to get to this point, but now that we’re here we have a finished product in which all of Rosemount can take pride. Members of the Rosemount Area Arts Council spent a long time gathering contributions...

Editorial: Interchange project is good news
In May of 2002 the city of Rosemount, Dakota County and the Minnesota Department of Transportation released a study that looked at, among other things, the interchange between County Road 42 and Highway 52. It called out limited visibility and “deficient ramp lengths” at the intersection,...

Editorial: Volunteers do thankless work
Putting on a big community event takes a lot of work. Just ask anybody involved in organizing Farmington’s successful Dew Days celebration over the weekend, or the Rosemount Area Arts Council’s Art Blast, which continues through Sunday. A lot of volunteers put in a lot of...

Editorial: Good bye, Andrea
The first thing Andrea Langworthy ever wrote to this newspaper was a complaint. A column we’d ran had less than glowing things to say about a particular car salesman, and Andrea, the first female car salesperson in the state back in 1976, stood up for the man. A while...

Editorial: Monday is about honoring memories
Most people will have the day off of work Monday, but Memorial Day is not a holiday about barbecues or yard work or an afternoon on the boat. As the name suggests, it’s a day to remember. Primarily that means remembering the men and women who have fought and died in service...

Editorial: Your newspaper, direct to your inbox
We put a lot of work into this newspaper every week, and we like to know people are reading it. It used to be a pretty simple transaction. We’d print the paper and deliver it to readers’ mailboxes, and they’d sit down to read it. The growing prominence of the Internet...

Editorial: Rosemount has lost an active voice
Rosemount has lost a treasure. Myron Napper passed away on April 18 and his death means the loss of a resident who was outspoken and fought for what he believed in. Napper, in his old work jeans and suspenders, was an active citizen who embraced his role as part of a democratic...

Editorial: Rosemount's a great town when you take the time to think about it
A group of Rosemount residents took time last week to identify some of the things the city has going for it. The exercise was part of a University of Minnesota class, and it could ultimately lead to strategies the city can use promote itself. But the lessons behind the exercise...
