Forum Communications endorsement: McFadden would serve honorably in Senate
If Mike McFadden brings the enthusiasm and focus to the U.S. Senate that he has brought to his candidacy, Minnesotans will be well served. Republican McFadden is challenging first-term Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and on balance the challenger is making the case for change. That’s...

Editorial: Homecoming win a lesson in inclusion
Erich Hoffmann, Rosemount High School’s recently crowned homecoming king, said this week that he’d had his eye on that particular title since his freshman year. And while it’s possible he was overstating things a bit, it’s also entirely possible he was not. There might...

Editorial: Work to make a difference
On the surface, Farmington and Rosemount can seem like comfortable suburbs. They are filled with nice houses, and with people living nice lives. Sometimes it’s hard to see problems like homelessness or hunger that seem more common in bigger cities. They’re there, though....

Editorial: Judges are an important part of elections
Elections are a big deal, obviously. They determine who will make the decisions for your city, your school district, your state or your country. Residents with a stake in what’s going on in the world around them should vote. Putting those elections on is a big job. Getting...

Editorial: Bad days can get better
From time to time we hear from Rosemount or Farmington residents who are interested in keeping their name out of the newspaper. Often it is because they have done something to end up in our police report, and they hope to spare themselves the embarrassment of friends and neighbors...

Editorial: Recount decision makes sense
There were some legitimate reasons for Jamal Abdulahi to request a recount in last week’s Rosemount City Council primary. He had finished tied for fourth in a contest that would send four candidates to November’s general election. Abdulahi ultimately lost the election on...

Editorial: Last Hope makes a difference
When Last Hope got its start nearly 30 years ago there wasn’t much to the organization. Founder Bev Orr grew up with an interest in helping animals, and Last Hope, a no-kill animal rescue, was her way of following through. Back in the early days there were maybe 20 or 30 volunteers...

Editorial: Neighbors come together
The stereotype about life in the suburbs is that people don’t know their neighbors. That they come home from work, pull into their garage and never give a second thought to the people who live even just a house away. There might be some truth to that, but we have seen enough...

Editorials: Explore new culture with Buddha visit
There is a unique cultural opportunity coming to the the Farmington area next week. No, not the Dakota County Fair. Or, not just the county fair anyway. Along with the animal barns and fried foods, Farmington and Rosemount residents will have the opportunity next week...

Editorial: New park is an exciting addition
There have been plenty of new parks in Farmington and Rosemount over the years. New developments go up, and green space goes along with them. Playgrounds and slides and basketball courts provide places for neighborhood kids to play. It’s been a while, though, since either...

Editorial: Get out and get involved
The city of Rosemount wants some help from residents. In cooperation with three other cities, Rosemount recently hired a volunteer coordinator whose job it is to find roles for volunteers, and then to match those roles to people willing to fill them. It’s a more formal approach...

Editorial: Good news comes with bad
The front page of this week’s edition is something of a study in contrasts. Two of the four stories focus on the good that can happen in a community. The other two cover somewhat less pleasant subject matter. One story is about Art Blast, a first-year effort to bring a week...

Editorial: Technology takes a leading role
The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District is taking its time as it considers the future of technology in its classrooms. It put together a task force last year. This year it has what it’s calling beta teams to serve as a kind of high-tech guinea pig. And perhaps, somewhere...

Last week in this space we talked in general terms about all there is to do this summer in Farmington and Rosemount. In the week ahead we have two prime examples. One is familiar, at least to Farmington residents. The other is brand new. Farmington’s Dew Days officially...

Editorial: There’s plenty to do this summer
The school year has ended, or is about to, for students in the Farmington and Rosemount school districts. Which means this week there are probably a lot of young people complaining there is nothing to do in their city. It’s a ridiculous notion, of course. Though Farmington and...
