Chuck's column: A lot to do before the end of the year
Rumor has it winter is finally over. I'll believe it when I see it. I know many of you agree this has been about the strangest end to winter ever. I thought the night when the snow was falling intensely while the communities were testing their tornado sirens was a scene right out...

Andrea's column: Looking back
Before my nephew and his wife bought a house a few weeks ago, he called his mother to ask if it was in a safe neighborhood. You can imagine my sister's surprise when she heard the address.

Nathan's column: My job is worse than your job
Plenty of people think they have a lousy job. They daydream about winning the lottery or about writing the Great American Novel or, if the research I did for last week's column is any indication, about finding a generous sugar daddy to keep them in the manner to which they would like...

Letter: Clausen has worked hard for education
To the editor, I just want everyone to know that our very own state senator, Greg Clausen, has taken a leadership role in improving E-12 and higher education in Minnesota. Please check out the bills that he has authored and sponsored. The all-day kindergarten bill is perhaps the...

Chuck's column: In the life of a teacher, grading can be a real grind
After 31 years of being in this business, it would make sense for me to have tired of certain components of this job. I'm human. I can't be excited about it all like I was when I was a new teacher. Certainly, I still get pumped for certain events. However, there is one part of this...

Andrea's column: A memorable moment
She's coming! She's coming! It's been difficult to contain my excitement since I learned iconic folksinger Joan Baez will perform at the zoo's Weesner Family Amphitheater this June. Even though my head says the location would be hard for me to manage, my heart tells me to figure out...

Nathan's column: Learning a sweet lesson
You can learn a lot when you work for a newspaper. You learn things that interest you. You learn things that are of value to your readers. You also learn things just because some public relations person somewhere got ahold of your email address. It's the professional equivalent...

Student voices: Wrapping things up at RHS
I'm not quite done with high school, but I am getting close. I have about five weeks left until I graduate, which I haven't quite comprehended because this school year has gone by faster than any other year. It also doesn't help that the weather hasn't quite caught up to what time...

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...

City notes: Firefighters give back to Rosemount
On Friday of this week, the city of Rosemount will hold an informal gathering to give our thanks and best wishes to Scott Aker, retiring from the fire department after 31 years, the last 25 of them as chief. This is a big transition for Scott -- and also for our department. The...

Student voices: Out with sweats, in with shorts
Snow in April? Really? Minnesota weather has come to a new extreme this "spring." The whole winter in the spring thing is getting a bit old, Mother Nature. Whenever I hear snow in the forecast I cringe a little bit because that means springs sports will be delayed yet again. I think...

Chuck's column: Students find many traits worthy of admiration
Huck Finn. I suspect many of you have read the book. The mighty Mississippi in all its glory, taking Huck and Jim on an adventure unlike most of us will ever know. Meeting all sorts of unsavory individuals along the way. And meeting a few who would be cool people to have in our...

Andrea's column: Farewell to America's sweetheart
Last week's news that Annette Funicello had died hit me hard. The former Mouseketeer passed away from complications related to multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks the central nervous system. She was 70 years old. For anyone unfamiliar with her, Annette -- no last name needed;...

Nathan's column: For one weekend, winter won
Were they interested in such things -- and I honestly can't imagine why they would be -- historians might record last weekend as the precise point when this seemingly never-ending winter finally broke my spirit. As the time I finally threw up my arms (metaphorically) and shut myself...

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