Editorial: Expand fishing options on the Vermillion River
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is considering a change to fishing rules on the Vermillion River. They hope to draw more people to the aquatic and wildlife management areas near Farmington. We think it’s a great idea. The DNR has put a lot of time and effort...

Editorial: Good bye, Andrea
The first thing Andrea Langworthy ever wrote to this newspaper was a complaint. A column we’d ran had less than glowing things to say about a particular car salesman, and Andrea, the first female car salesperson in the state back in 1976, stood up for the man. A while...

Editorial: Monday is about honoring memories
Most people will have the day off of work Monday, but Memorial Day is not a holiday about barbecues or yard work or an afternoon on the boat. As the name suggests, it’s a day to remember. Primarily that means remembering the men and women who have fought and died in service...

Editorial: Your newspaper, direct to your inbox
We put a lot of work into this newspaper every week, and we like to know people are reading it. It used to be a pretty simple transaction. We’d print the paper and deliver it to readers’ mailboxes, and they’d sit down to read it. The growing prominence of the Internet...

Editorial: Rosemount has lost an active voice
Rosemount has lost a treasure. Myron Napper passed away on April 18 and his death means the loss of a resident who was outspoken and fought for what he believed in. Napper, in his old work jeans and suspenders, was an active citizen who embraced his role as part of a democratic...

Editorial: Minnesota FoodShare Month important for area food shelves
Look around your neighborhood and the numbers might surprise you. The food shelf at the Rosemount Family Resource Center serves 500 people a month. Farmington’s food shelf serves more than 1,200 per year. That’s a lot of need, even in communities where that need is not always...

Editorial: UMore change is no surprise to many
When the federal government swooped into Rosemount 63 years ago to acquire land for its Gopher Ordnance Works, it threw hundreds of local lives into turmoil. Some farmers lost land that had been in the family for generations. They were forced to relocate family, livestock and...

Editorial: Get involved and make a difference
There is a quote that stands out in this week’s edition of the Independent Town Pages. It’s in a story about a resident’s effort to have a mural built at Farmington’s Schmitz-Maki Arena, and it’s essence is that you might be surprised what you can accomplish if you’re...

Editorial: A new year full of stories lies ahead
It’s not entirely accurate to say the start of a new year brings a clean slate in Farmington and Rosemount. There are projects started in 2014 that will continue or conclude in 2015. Groundwork already in place will pay off in a few weeks or a few months. But the arrival of...

Editorial: Green efforts will make a difference at RHS
When you’ve got more than 2,000 people in a building, small changes can add up to big differences. Rosemount High School’s move to add the composting of organics to its waste program should have quite an impact. Starting when students return from their winter break, RHS...
