Chuck Brooks' column: Getting crafty
I think I have an amusing story to share with you this week regarding crafts. Yes, I said crafts. I have always wanted to be artsy/craftsy. My father desperately wanted me to understand the basic components of a car’s engine, but I wanted nothing to do with anything...

Andrea Langworthy's column: A road to betterment
It’s a little late in life but I am trying to be a more evolved person. With that in mind, as I wrote in a previous column, I watch Oprah’s hour-long “Super Soul Sunday” every week. After each new show, the network airs two hours of previously-shown broadcasts. Ones...

Nathan Hansen's column: Nevermind the evil laughter
Bit by bit, room by room, environmental inconvenience by environmental inconvenience, I have begun to exert my control over the weather patterns in my home. It didn’t used to be like this. For most of the six years I’ve owned my house I’ve mostly been happy to take things...

Chuck Brooks' column: What was your name again?
I am happy to announce I survived another parent/teacher conference event. Each round gets a little more uncertain for me, however. After 32 years of teaching, the memory banks are full, and they don’t deal well with new information. One of the abilities I used to pride myself...

Andrea Langworthy's column: An emotional night
It’s not always a given that my husband and I will watch the Grammy awards show. This year, though, we made it a requirement. Paul McCartney was supposed to perform. Ringo Starr, too. I had read they wouldn’t be on stage together but still, what a thrill. Sunday’s viewing...

Nathan Hansen's column: Let me be serious for a minute
I like to make jokes. If you've read this column, you probably know that. Or maybe you didn’t realize I've been making jokes all this time and instead have been checking back each week for trenchant political commentary. If that's the case,I I’m pretty curious about your...

City column: Planned projects will benefit city
This month’s winter weather makes the construction season seem very far away. But even now, in the coldest weeks of the year, the city of Rosemount is busy planning for the projects residents will see under way this summer. Those projects will answer a lot of needs in our community....

Kassie Klasen's column: Get rid of things on Craigslist
Most of us have bought something used, whether it is a car, a tractor, a book, it is always a nice affordable alternative to spending big bucks on something new. Well, how many of us have sold something used? Years ago before the internet entered the market of reselling...

57B Rep. Anna Wills talks session
With session just around the corner, activity is starting to pick up again in Saint Paul with the pre-filing of bills that will receive their first reading on February 25th when the legislature reconvenes for 2014. I wanted to update you on the one bill that I've chief authored, and...

Chuck Brooks' column: The View from my Room
I’m back. I warned you I would return, and I’m now making good on my promise. Had someone told me we would not only have off two weeks for the holidays, but the governor would give us a bonus day and our district would follow suit, I would have guffawed for hours. Then it...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Celebrate every day
Sometimes, on the day my column is due, I have no idea what to write about. That’s when I use Google to check out what holiday might be on the horizon. Or, even better, what odd or idiotic designation might be given to an upcoming day. Take today: January 13. National Make...

Student voices: Don't take life for granted
It is hard to believe we had our highly anticipated D.A.R.E. program almost seven years ago. That was probably the first essay I ever wrote. I actually just found it the other day. I remember being so proud of it. I wrote about how I will abstain from drugs and how bad they were. ...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Different opinion
There is a movement afoot to abolish what remains of Minnesota’s blue laws; the ones which prohibit liquor stores and car dealerships from being open on Sunday. Originally intended to keep holy the Sabbath, they once included bans on the sale of clothing, food, office supplies...

Nathan Hansen's column: Going crazy from the cold
Minnesota residents kind of lost their collective minds this week as the result of some colder than usual weather. Governor Mark Dayton canceled school statewide Monday, making him a hero to thousands of Minnesotans who are too young to vote for him. Rainbow stores closed their doors...

Nathan Hansen's column: A new start for the new year
This is a great time of year. The calendar still has that new year smell. And since we’re starting fresh, it’s as good a time as any to make it clear what I don’t care about. That doesn’t mean it’s a good time, I guess. Only that no other time would be better. Still,...
