Editorial: Support the food shelf in March
How lean are things these days at Rosemount’s food shelf? Consider the spaghetti sauce. The pasta topping is usually a staple at the food shelf. It’s something they always have in abundance. Except now they don’t. There’s hardly any there. The cupboards might not be...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Happy birthday, Facebook
In honor of its 10th birthday, Facebook sent gifts to its members — a video tableau of photos and most-liked posts from the member’s page, the present is set to music and lasts a minute. Once the gift is opened, recipients can share it with their friends on the social media site. ...

Editorial: Keep meetings as open as possible
On Monday night the Farmington City Council and the Farmington School Board both held workshop meetings. Both groups addressed issues that will affect finances and other aspects of the organizations those boards represent. There was an important difference between the meetings, though. ...

Student voices: Happiness isn't all about money
About this time last year, when I was a junior in high school, I decided I was really interested in doing PSEO. PSEO stands for post-secondary enrollment option. A couple of my friends chose PSEO and loved it so I got a little more information and eventually decided to enroll. PSEO...

Chuck Brooks' column: Getting crafty
I think I have an amusing story to share with you this week regarding crafts. Yes, I said crafts. I have always wanted to be artsy/craftsy. My father desperately wanted me to understand the basic components of a car’s engine, but I wanted nothing to do with anything...

Chuck Brooks' column: Teaching goes beyond what's on the curriculum
It’s finally February. I thought January would never end. In 32 years, I’ve never had to listen to talk of “adding student-contact” days. It’s been surreal on some levels. I’ve heard from some former students who are now freshmen in college, and they can’t believe school...

Andrea Langworthy's column: A road to betterment
It’s a little late in life but I am trying to be a more evolved person. With that in mind, as I wrote in a previous column, I watch Oprah’s hour-long “Super Soul Sunday” every week. After each new show, the network airs two hours of previously-shown broadcasts. Ones...

Nathan Hansen's column: Nevermind the evil laughter
Bit by bit, room by room, environmental inconvenience by environmental inconvenience, I have begun to exert my control over the weather patterns in my home. It didn’t used to be like this. For most of the six years I’ve owned my house I’ve mostly been happy to take things...

Chuck Brooks' column: What was your name again?
I am happy to announce I survived another parent/teacher conference event. Each round gets a little more uncertain for me, however. After 32 years of teaching, the memory banks are full, and they don’t deal well with new information. One of the abilities I used to pride myself...

Andrea Langworthy's column: An emotional night
It’s not always a given that my husband and I will watch the Grammy awards show. This year, though, we made it a requirement. Paul McCartney was supposed to perform. Ringo Starr, too. I had read they wouldn’t be on stage together but still, what a thrill. Sunday’s viewing...

Nathan Hansen's column: Let me be serious for a minute
I like to make jokes. If you've read this column, you probably know that. Or maybe you didn’t realize I've been making jokes all this time and instead have been checking back each week for trenchant political commentary. If that's the case,I I’m pretty curious about your...

Editorial: Do your part to fight crime
Crime happens even in seemingly quiet suburbs like Farmington and Rosemount. That’s not a surprise. Perhaps slightly more surprising is the idea that crime happens on the scale recorded on the front page of this week’s Independent Town Pages. Over the course of several months...

Kassie Klasen's column: Get rid of things on Craigslist
Most of us have bought something used, whether it is a car, a tractor, a book, it is always a nice affordable alternative to spending big bucks on something new. Well, how many of us have sold something used? Years ago before the internet entered the market of reselling...
