Nathan's column: Dashing off into history
On July 14, a long-outdated form of communication will gasp its last rattling breath and at last fall silent, years and perhaps decades after most people in this country even realized it was still in use. Maybe even longer since it was a legitimately important means of transmitting...

Nathan's column: Like somebody's watching me
There's been a whole lot of fuss lately about PRISM, which was introduced to the world last week as a government program to mine personal information from the phone calls and online activity of the American people. People are furious. They don't like the idea that, without their...

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...

Student voices: Moving on
If all goes as planned, this column will be published after I have graduated from high school. I've been waiting for this to happen for four years, but now that it has, I find myself asking: Now what? Obviously I have an entire summer vacation ahead of me, and I know that next...

Chuck's column: What makes up your perfect day?
If you're reading this before Friday, June 7 at 2:20, then school is still in session and finals are wrapping up. If you're reading this after June 7 at 3:30, it's likely that Elvis has left the building! This brings to close the 39th issue of my weekly communication with you. ...

Andrea's column: Magical music
My preferred vacation spot has always been Florida's Disney World. I know, I know: You're going to tell me it can't compare to France, Italy or Hawaii. Maybe not, but I loved the rides, restaurants, parades and the story book characters who happily posed for pictures. My last trip...

Nathan's column: Gone stir crazy in a rainy spring
I feel like it's been a long time since I've used this space to talk about biking. Maybe you're OK with that. Maybe you've noticed, and you were keeping quiet because you thought I'd forget. Maybe you hoped, somewhere deep down within yourself, that I'd take up a more sensible hobby,...

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...

Student voices: Step out for a good cause
Almost everyone has been affected by cancer, some more than others. Some people enjoy helping the cause, some people choose not to. I am the kind of person that likes to help the cause, and the past few years I have thoroughly enjoyed it. When I got to high school, I joined the High...

Chuck's column: Class of 2013 made an impression
I remember my graduation night from high school as if it happened yesterday. God only knows it didn't, but it was quite the night. At 18, it was one of my most emotional evenings ever. I really didn't want to leave high school. I loved the social aspect of it; unfortunately, I wasn't...

Andrea's column: Questions and more questions
Do you ever wonder why you kept something? There must have been a reason you hung on to it, but what was it? That happened to me last week. I had some papers, notebooks and magazines stacked on one side of the nightstand and decided instead of moving everything aside when I wanted...

Nathan's column: An inspiring tradition continues
It's become something of a tradition since I started writing this column. Every year at this time the people in charge of planning graduation ceremonies at Farmington and Rosemount high schools neglect to ask me to speak (Given how many years my invitation has gotten lost in the mail...

City notes: Be prepared when disaster strikes
The horrifying scenes out of Oklahoma last week drive home a message that I was reminded of just a few days earlier. The message: it can happen here, and many of us are not ready. I attended the meeting of mayors and city administrators or managers that takes place each month...
