Editorial: Rosemount's a great town when you take the time to think about it
A group of Rosemount residents took time last week to identify some of the things the city has going for it. The exercise was part of a University of Minnesota class, and it could ultimately lead to strategies the city can use promote itself. But the lessons behind the exercise...

Editorial: Suffering can be hard to spot
We have seen plenty of evidence over the years that Farmington and Rosemount are caring communities. There are well-used food shelves in both cities to help people who are having a tough time. There are organizations that offer free community meals. Residents pull together to hold...

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....

Editorial: Flexible learning days have a future
The Farmington School District’s new flexible learning days are pretty clearly a work in progress. When the district held its first on President’s Day in an attempt to make up some of the teaching time lost to frigid weather this winter there were concerns about teachers assigning...

Editorial: OneRosemount effort will be good for all
The people behind the OneRosemount group have a big project in mind. Huge. As reported on the front page of this week's Town Pages, the group of community leaders wants to put together a group of Rosemount residents to pack 286,120 meals to be sent to Haitian refugees living in the...

Editorial: Leprechaun Days takes hard work
Last week in this space we talked about all of the fun things to do during the summer in Rosemount. Leprechaun Days, which as this issue hits newsstands is midway through its 10-day run, is certainly one of the biggest items on that list. Leprechaun Days is a significant event, and...

Editorial: BB gun incident was handled well
It's an unusual question to get in your email on a Friday: "Do you know anything about the gun incident yesterday at Rosemount High School?" We didn't, and while we figured the fact there hadn't been more talk about the incident was a sign it wasn't a significant issue, we didn't...

Editorial: Arbor day tree distribution is good for city
Rosemount is no stranger to rapid development. The city added new homes by the dozens for a while in the early 2000s, and while things have slowed as the economy struggled, there are signs things are picking up. There is more growth in the future, and Rosemount is one of the few cities...

Editorial: Honoring Andrew's memory
It's hard to reconcile the story of Andrew Wilfahrt with Minnesota's pending vote on a constitutional amendment to define marriage. Minnesota residents will vote in a little more than a year on a constitutional amendment that, if approved, would more than ever put restrictions on...

Editorial: Honoring RHS alumni who have died serving is the right thing
Over the years the halls of Rosemount HighSchool have been the home to many. Some of its alum have gone onto great careers, some have traveled the world and some have died for their country. Since the school opened its doors in 1918, 17 of its alumni have made the ultimate sacrifice...

Editorial:Levy reduction is a feat worth appreciating
This is a challenging time to be in charge of a city budget. Construction has slowed, so after a period of explosive growth a city like Rosemount finds itself with a fraction of its former permit income. The slowdown in growth has also taken a flow of new residents that once felt...

By the time this issue of the Town Pages reaches readers, the 2011 edition of Leprechaun Days will be more than half over. The Run for the Gold will be gone for another year. The bathtub races, Rosemount's biggest water balloon fight, will have rolled on. If you've taken in one or...

Editorial: Plenty of people are making a difference
In difficult times it is important for people who have the ability to reach out and offer help to the people who need it most. These are some of the most difficult times we have experienced, and we find it fascinating to see the ways people in Rosemount have found to lend a hand. This...

Column: A new office companion
Last winter I ended up with a new office mate at work. Late one night I was alone in my office, working with only the light of my monitor and desk lamp. The snow outside my window glittered in the moonlight. The bare trees threw spiny shadows across the snow. I was tapping away...
