Editorial: Get out and enjoy summer
Summer fun starts in earnest this week. Students are out of school. A gray, rainy spring appears to finally be providing at least some hope of sunshine, and Dew Days is on the schedule. Most Farmington residents won't need an introduction to Dew Days. It's been a fixture in the...

Editorial: All-day K will be worth the work
When Sen. Greg Clausen was elected last fall it was clear education would be a focus. The former Rosemount High School principal has experience in the area, and he knows how important a good education is. One of his focuses was state funding for all-day kindergarten. He authored...

Editorial: Pay tribute to fallen veterans on Monday
Farmington and Rosemount residents have a long history of serving their country, and both cities have developed strong traditions of paying tribute to those who lost their lives in service. Those traditions will continue Sunday and Monday with a series of ceremonies. Activity starts...

Editorial: Community gardens do good for many
A garden can be a wonderful thing. It is a way to get outside, to connect with the Earth, to bring more healthful foods into your day-to-day diet. It can also be much more than that, a fact that is becoming clearer all the time in Farmington and Rosemount. The trend started a few...

Chuck's column: It's tough being a freshman
We hear again and again that we often don't get it. We don't know what it's like to be our students. Regardless of the fact we were their age once, we just don't get what it's like to be their age today. Consequently, I thought I'd ask them. In today's world, what is one of the...

Editorial: Do good from the comfort of home
Food drives don't get much easier than the one that will take place this weekend in Farmington, Rosemount and cities all across the country. Depending on where your mailbox is, you might not even have to leave your house. The impact can be significant, though. Each year mail carriers...

Editorial: YMCA survey is one step of many
There was a survey recently that suggests Rosemount residents are interested in seeing a new YMCA in the city. That is good news. It is at the very least a sign that the city, Dakota County Technical College and the Y have not been wasting their time over the past year or so as they...

It is the job of a school district to educate its students. That much should be obvious.

Editorial: Workshops move discussion out of the public eye
The Farmington City Council approved a new set of goals Monday night. That's a good thing. A city should have a plan for where it wants to go in the coming years. Listed among those goals is a desire to maintain good communication with residents. That is also good, but it doesn't...

Emergency workers in Farmington and Rosemount are equipped to handle a lot. They're well prepared to take care of the kinds of situations they are likely to encounter on a day-to-day basis. Every once in a while, though, something out of the ordinary comes along. Like a man getting...

It's State of the City season in Farmington and Rosemount. Rosemount mayor Bill Droste was scheduled to give his annual address Wednesday morning, right about the time this issue was going to print. Farmington Mayor Todd Larson will give his next Wednesday. There isn't usually a...

Editorial: Lessons come in many forms
There is more to school than what goes on in the classroom. Turning out good students takes more than pencils and books. Students learn lessons every day that will never show up on a standardized test. There are two good examples of that in this week's issue, and they take place...

Merger means more news, not less local
By this point you've probably noticed there is something different about your local paper. It's bigger. Its layout has changed. And, oh yeah, there's a whole new city's worth of news in there. In some ways, this is a big change. The Farmington Independent and Rosemount Town Pages...

Editorial: RHS dance show is worth checking out
There might not be a better showcase of Rosemount High School students' creativity than the school's annual dance show. Plays and concerts show off artistic ability, but students' are working with scripts and sheet music. Art shows give students creative freedom, but not the large-scale...

Editorial: Long road may end in the right place
After the appearance of yet another hurdle in the quest for a new senior housing complex in Rosemount, the city finds itself where it perhaps should have been all along -- looking to a known and trusted developer to get things done. When the city first chose a developer for the proposed...
