Chuck Brooks: Sharing the story of our school
Maybe about six years ago, on a Homecoming Friday at school, I was preparing to emcee the Homecoming Pep Fest/Coronation that afternoon in the gym. I must have been in a real "homecoming" mood, complete with rah-rah and sis-boom-bah spirit. I wanted to do something different and special....

Chuck Brooks' column: A few thoughts on aging with grace
I saw a movie today. Mr. Holmes. It was not along the lines of the recent Sherlock Holmes pictures with Robert Downey Jr. Nor was I expecting it to be. It’s a product of BBC Films, so you know it’s going to be worthy of your time. It was with Ian McKellen as the 93-year old Holmes....

Nathan Hansen's column: Staring into the blackness
We’re going on a month now since my television set gave up the ghost mid-Netflix binge, and my life thus far does not seem to have been thrown into any particular state of chaos. I’m not weeping or tearing my hair out or acting out reruns of The Big Bang Theory with sock...

Congressman John Kline's column: VA hospitals must do better
Through their service and sacrifice our veterans have protected our nation and deserve a government that fulfills the promise of quality care. There are well more than 300,000 employees at VA facilities nationwide and undoubtedly many are dedicated to providing quality health...

Reporter Emily Zimmer says good bye
For more than eight years, I have had the honor of covering Rosemount news. This edition will be the last for me. Mon-day I start a graduate program and I have taken a part-time position. I believe this is a good move for me professionally and personally. It will give me some...

Chuck Brooks' column: A lifetime of pets
A friend of mine recently had to say goodbye to her dog as her pet got into some pills when no one was looking and not much could be done once ingested. Having grown up with at least two dogs in the house at all times, I understand having to say goodbye to “man’s best friend.”...

City notes: Events keep residents engaged
One of the joys of summer is that it’s easier to come together as a community. Today Rosemount is between two great events that bring us closer. Leprechaun Days has just completed a successful run. And the Night to Unite block parties are just ahead. My colleagues on the city...

Chuck Brooks' column: On a post-parade high
I am writing this to you two hours after the Leprechaun Days Parade experience. I say “experience” because it was that and more. As you may well know, I was honored to be the Grand Marshal for this year’s parade. Why me? Something about retiring after 33 years of teaching and...

Nathan Hansen's column: They're making TVs how big now?
You like to think you’ll react well when the end finally comes. That you’ll accept the reality of the situation, wipe a single, manly tear from the corner of your eye and get on with the business of your life. And, honestly, I think I did pretty well. It’s never easy to...

Chuck Brooks' column: Time to take center stage
Welcome to the weekend that kicks off Leprechaun Days Week here in Rosemount. I know they have lots of fun planned for the week ahead, but as you all most likely know, it kicks off this Saturday with the annual Leprechaun Days Parade. And that’s where my story begins this week. ...

Congressman John Kline guest column: A commitment to the future
Education is a deeply personal issue for many Minnesotans. It is a topic discussed around kitchen tables, whether it’s a child’s report card, a policy change taking place in a local school district, or perhaps even policy changes being debated by state and federal officials. We...

Microsoft has done a lot for we humans over the years. Its Windows operating system powers many of our computers. Office products like PowerPoint make it simple for nearly anyone to put presentations that have been scientifically optimized for boredom production. And gamers love its...

Chuck Brooks' column: Out with the old this grilling season
Is it simply a misperception on my part or are people generally in better moods in the summer? Or is it just me who’s in the better mood? I realize I have more motivation to be in a good place this summer more than any other summer of my life. However, I also have plenty that...

Nathan Hansen's column: Behold the webcam of God
There are plenty of good reasons to go to church every week. People go to affirm their faith, or to be part of a community, or to stock up on coffee and cookies. Sometimes people go to get involved in ministry work, and other times they show up just to make sure nobody starts...

City column: Senior development is next step for downtown property
