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...

Nathan Hansen's column: Robots tell great knock-knock jokes
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
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...

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...
