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
I had the honor recently of standing with my colleagues on the city council and other officials who serve Rosemount to signal the start of an important project to keep our community a great place to live for all our citizens. It was the groundbreaking for Cambrian Commons, the...

Nathan Hansen's column: Nothing to lose your head over
To paraphrase the great philosopher Ferris Bueller, science moves pretty fast. If you don’t take the opportunity to write a column about a totally bonkers plan to transplant a monkey’s head when you have it, people just might move on to something even more insane. The quote...

Student voices: Ups and downs
Another year of school is coming to close, and it’s been an emotional rollercoaster. The seniors are an emotional mess by this time; they are reminiscing about all the memories from the past four years, excited for the future yet nervous to start their own lives and leave their...

Chuck Brooks' column: The year was 1982....
I want to begin this week by telling you about the next couple of columns. I am going to take off a little bit here to recharge my emotional battery after this edition, and the Town Pages has graciously agreed to run the graduation speech I gave on June 6 for the Class of 2015 in...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Moving: a younger woman's game
Boxes and bags and bins, oh my! My room in the transitional care facility looks like a discount store at clearance time. If you’ve read my columns recently, you know my husband and I are moving. Downsizing to a one-bedroom, one-bath independent senior living building. Part...

Nathan Hansen's column: Another graduation in the crowd
Graduation season is here again. Seniors from Farmington High School will receive their diplomas Friday night. Rosemount seniors will follow on Saturday. At the School of Hard Knocks, graduates will presumably just roll themselves a cigarette and get on with their day. Barring...

Chuck Brooks' column: Ready for graduation
It’s graduation weekend. I believe it’s my 33rd. I don’t ever remember missing a graduation. I always have thought it important to attend. I liken it to a coach or a director. They practice or rehearse for weeks, leading up to the big game or opening night. Does the coach or...

Chuck Brooks' column: Almost time for the endless summer
The final weekend in May. Where did this month go? Oh, wait. Perhaps I know. First there was OnStage. Then Prom. That was followed by the all-school awards assembly and then Memorial Day weekend. Yup. That’s where it went. So, now what? Summer awaits! But first, graduation...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Rainy days
My husband and I were fortunate to work for companies that offered good health insurance and, even more important, 401K investment plans. We signed on as soon as the benefit was announced and had a percentage of our pay rerouted to accounts we were told would give us a good retirement...

Nathan Hansen's column: Going back to the movies
Back in the early days of my tenure here I would occasionally write movie reviews and put them in the paper. It was never anything official. I didn’t get invited to critics’ screenings. Roger Ebert never asked me to hang out with him. I didn’t even get a deal on Twizzlers at...

At Rosemount High School, I am involved in Irish Update, the news broadcasting class that airs a show in the lunchroom every week. For the class, we have to put together a newscast with three stories, funny openings and closings, and anchors. Whenever we do a story, we have to interview...

City notes: Water conservation is a focus for city
Coming off a slightly soggy holiday weekend, it may seem like a strange time to talk about water conservation. But that’s a subject we work on frequently at Rosemount City Hall. And with residents’ help, we can save on water — and they can save on water bills. Providing...

Chuck Brooks' column: As time winds down, time to think about packing
It’s Memorial Day weekend. Who doesn’t love the unofficial start of summer? Those days where the furnace raged full blast, warding off -30 temps outside, are but a mere memory now. Those barren, forsaken trees are now bursting at the seams with greenery aplenty. People are out...

Andrea Langworthy's column: A weekend not worth repeating
Saturday morning started out like most. A leisurely breakfast for my hubby, medications and feeding tube for me. I read the paper while he took a shower and then, we traded places. I brushed my teeth and washed my face while he got dressed. Later that day we were supposed to...
