Editorial: Recount decision makes sense
There were some legitimate reasons for Jamal Abdulahi to request a recount in last week’s Rosemount City Council primary. He had finished tied for fourth in a contest that would send four candidates to November’s general election. Abdulahi ultimately lost the election on...

Editorial: Last Hope makes a difference
When Last Hope got its start nearly 30 years ago there wasn’t much to the organization. Founder Bev Orr grew up with an interest in helping animals, and Last Hope, a no-kill animal rescue, was her way of following through. Back in the early days there were maybe 20 or 30 volunteers...

Editorial: Neighbors come together

Editorial: Get out and get involved
The city of Rosemount wants some help from residents. In cooperation with three other cities, Rosemount recently hired a volunteer coordinator whose job it is to find roles for volunteers, and then to match those roles to people willing to fill them. It’s a more formal approach...

Editorial: Good news comes with bad
The front page of this week’s edition is something of a study in contrasts. Two of the four stories focus on the good that can happen in a community. The other two cover somewhat less pleasant subject matter. One story is about Art Blast, a first-year effort to bring a week...

Editorial: Technology takes a leading role
The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District is taking its time as it considers the future of technology in its classrooms. It put together a task force last year. This year it has what it’s calling beta teams to serve as a kind of high-tech guinea pig. And perhaps, somewhere...
