Letter to the editor: Hockey should pay for its own rink
To the editor, I plan on voting no on the upcoming ice sheet referendum. Rosemount taxpayers just cannot afford another sheet of ice. Currently Rosemount residents are paying over $100,000 per year in upkeep for the current sheet of ice at the community center. This is in addition...

Letter to the editor: Referendum request is too much
To the editor, How much is enough? How much is too much? On May 17, Rosemount residents will be asked to decide whether to take on $15 million in bond debt to add to existing team sports facilities, including $8.7 million to construct a second indoor ice sheet. In approving this bond...

Letter: New ice rink would be a waste of money
To the editor, I’m all for improving the community, however building another ice rink in Rosemount is not only fiscally but environmentally irresponsible. Unfortunately we have a group of Rosemount Youth Hockey families, a mayor and city council members who are thinking about their...

Letter to the editor: Little will lead in MN Senate
To the editor, As a 2014 LSHS graduate and former Lakeville ambassador, I am writing to show my support for Matt Little. I support Mayor Little in running for State Senate because, in short, he supports us. Matt Little instituted weekly “Meetings with the Mayor” so that any person...

Letter to the editor: Be sensible with budget surplus
To the editor, The Minnesota Senate will convene the 2016 Legislative Session on March 8 with a structurally balanced budget and a $900 billion surplus. One of the primary functions of the 2016 legislature is to decide how to allocate the surplus in a way that is structurally balanced,...

Letter to the editor: Later start, less homework will benefit RHS students
To the editor, High School is a time for learning, development, and fun, but can be very stressful for many students. Students can easily become overwhelmed, and weighed down both mentally and physically. This negatively affects the student’s health, test scores, and lessens the...

Letter to the editor: Rosemount needs more outdoor ice rinks
To the editor, I want to share a scene I just witnessed at Bloomfield Park. As you probably know, when our hockey teams have outdoor practice, the rinks close for public use during this time. While it is a great way to supplement our lack of indoor ice when the weather cooperates,...

Letter to the editor: Show tolerance, acceptance
To the editor, If you are a Native American, your ancestors were born in America. If you are African American, your ancestors were brought here in slave boats. The rest of us come from immigrants who largely came here to avoid persecution, particularly of religion. They wanted to...

Letter to the editor: Letter was discriminatory, intolerant
To the editor, Concern for your families and your community is understandable, but (Craig Lewandowski’s Oct. 23 letter expressing concern about a proposed mosque in Rosemount) is a jumble of discriminatory religious intolerance. Even if the facts stated in the article were true...

Community Voices: Nelson should apologize for actions
In September, the Rosemount City Council voted 4-1 to rezone property on 154000 South Robert Trail so members of the Muslim community could establish a mosque. Councilman Shaun Nelson not only voted against the project, he mobilized. In an unprecedented move, he requested the issue...

Letter: Rosemount resident wants facts on planned mosque
To the editor, In regards to your editorial last week on the Muslim mosque, I think the key elements of this purchase of property were missing as I was one of the residents who spoke to the city council that evening for about five minutes. Neither KSTP or The Rosemount Town Pages...
