Editorial: Work to make a difference
On the surface, Farmington and Rosemount can seem like comfortable suburbs. They are filled with nice houses, and with people living nice lives. Sometimes it’s hard to see problems like homelessness or hunger that seem more common in bigger cities. They’re there, though....
