Nathan Hansen's column: The case against crashing
If you read this column last week you know I recently crashed my bicycle. And here’s the thing about crashing a bicycle: If a person were to come to me and say, “Hey, Nathan, I have an opportunity here to crash a bicycle, and I hear you’ve done that. Do you recommend it?”...

Guest opinion: Don't let the bedbugs bite
I think I know how moms — and dads — feel after they tuck in a kid at night: Heavenly! Lately, I’ve been trying to take as many opportunities to visit my mom in this the final leg of her journey. I especially like the ritual of tucking my mom into bed at night....

Nathan Hansen's column: Crash and burn
Given the amount of time I’ve spent on a bike in the course of my life, I figure it’s a sign of either great skill, incredible luck or really unobtrusive training wheels that my history of crashes is limited and only moderately embarrassing. I know how I explain it. You’re...

Student voices: Abby urges fellow students to be safe at prom
We have now entered May, and prom season is officially under way. Prom has long been held at high schools around the country as a celebration of the end of the school year and a final goodbye to seniors. It is a long lasting tradition often called “the best night of high...

Chuck Brooks' column: Prom has changed over the years
Raise your hand if you went to Prom at some point in your high school existence. Actually, raise your hand if you went to Prom even after you graduated. That may sound strange to some of you, but then you’d be surprised if you showed up at Grand March on Saturday night. It’s not...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Scary, scary night
Early last Saturday morning, as I got back in bed, my husband blurted out that he didn’t think the apartment we’re moving to has air conditioning. “Why would you tell me this at two-thirty in the morning?” I asked. “Couldn’t it wait until eight or nine? When I get...

Nathan Hansen's column: I hope you're reading this in print
The first thing I did when I woke up Monday morning was pick up my phone to scroll through Instagram and Facebook and Twitter. I checked email and handled important business like checking in on my Clash of Clans village. All of which means I’d broken the rules of National...

Chuck Brooks' column: A lot to miss at Rosemount High School
If you’re reading this on Friday, May 8, 22 days now remain in my career. Life continues to be an emotional roller coaster as I head towards the finish of this phase of my life. Having put OnStage to bed, I get to simply teach from this point forward. I have small side...

Student voices: Abby talks about test pressure
As a student looking at the end of my junior year, the stress is on to complete my graduation requirements and apply to colleges. Standardized tests are quickly approaching, and all the students and teachers are feeling the pressure. The ACT is one such test, both a graduation requirement...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Time to let go
Even though my husband and I gave up on moving to assisted living, every time I looked around our house, all I saw was stuff and space. We spent over three months last year at a transitional care facility living in an area that was about four hundred square feet. What the heck do...

Nathan Hansen's column: Luck is starting to turn around
I have a short and mostly undistinguished record when it comes to gambling and games of chance. Fortunately, I’ve learned over the years to accept my limits. My career as a handicapper of horses is marked by two significant wins, each of which brought me more than $200. One...

City notes: City working towards sustainability
It’s not often that global issues come up before the Rosemount City Council. But last week, my colleagues and I approved a resolution calling on our residents, businesses, and institutions to celebrate Earth Day. It’s only reasonable for you to ask what we at the city are doing...

Chuck Brooks' column: Longtime OnStage partnership ends this weekend
It’s another week where I bring you with me by my side as I bring closure to another long-standing event in my life. OnStage. Once upon a time, 33 years ago…. I did NOT know anything about OnStage. I would learn about it during my first months of teaching, but the show itself...

Chuck Brooks' column: As retirement looms, the parade of 'lasts' picks up
Well, it seems like I am now in the midst of “lasts” more than at any point in this year. With a little over 30 days left in my career, I’m about to experience my final parent/teacher conferences. By the time you’re reading this, I probably already have. In the spring...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Wedding preparations
My niece was married in Florida last Saturday. She’s my goddaughter, too, so I felt doubly bad I couldn’t go. Airplanes, hotels, all the “stuff” connected with traveling isn’t fun anymore. Add a wheelchair, feeding tube and its paraphernalia and it’s downright impossible....
