Chuck's column: Remembering the classics
I amuse myself with desktop patterns. Doesn't everyone? I recently put my winter desktop away and sought something far more fun and indicative of my personality than a snowy landscape. What did I come up with? Cartoon characters. A collage of Hanna Barbera cartoon characters....

Andrea's column: Andrea finds no rest for the wicked
Bragging about how little sleep I get by on -- going to bed at midnight and rising at the crack of dawn -- is a thing of the past. Now, if I want to be halfway pleasant and somewhat productive, my perfect sleep number is nine hours. Nine hours elude me, though, so instead of boasting...

Nathan's column: How many for an extra life?
I've been hearing a lot lately about Bitcoins, which are a kind of Internet-based money that's real in the same way Kate Upton is really my Internet girlfriend. Which is to say, if I try hard enough I might be able to convince a few nerds, but most of the world will just look at me...

Student voices: Live in the moment or look ahead?
There are a lot of things to look forward to in the spring. At the top of my list is graduation. It is something I have been looking forward to for years, but realistically, it has been my main focus this year. Months of looking forward to such events can drag on, but I always...

Andrea's column: One step forward, two back
With the cold drawn out winter we've had, Minnesotans are anxious to pack away their thick mittens, hats and wooly coats. Bundling up is a lot of work, isn't it? That reminds me of one of my ideas to save money in the New Year. Friends have recommended I contact the local cable company...

Nathan's column: Do bikini models like pizza rolls?
It's possible that by the time you read this the University of Minnesota men's basketball team will have a new coach. It's also possible bikini model Kate Upton will show up on my doorstep tomorrow, but I'm not going to set out a tray of appetizers just yet. I will do a Google search...

Editorial: Workshops move discussion out of the public eye
The Farmington City Council approved a new set of goals Monday night. That's a good thing. A city should have a plan for where it wants to go in the coming years. Listed among those goals is a desire to maintain good communication with residents. That is also good, but it doesn't...

Andrea's column: A taxing situation
It's that time of year again. My mind should be on Easter or spring, but the only thing whirling about in my brain is taxes, taxes and more taxes. Not because I don't want to pay them but because I can't stand all the work involved before I write out the check. The dining room table...

Nathan's column: A little tournament trivia
One of the best things about the NCAA basketball tournament, which enters its second weekend Thursday, is the way it brings people together. For three weeks, millions of people across the country watch the same games, experience the same emotions, even think many of the same thoughts....

Editorial: Cooperation among cities benefits all
Emergency workers in Farmington and Rosemount are equipped to handle a lot. They're well prepared to take care of the kinds of situations they are likely to encounter on a day-to-day basis. Every once in a while, though, something out of the ordinary comes along. Like a man getting...

Andrea's column: Shopping for a good cause
While catching up with friends on Facebook last month, I noticed an off-to-the-side ad for a cute pair of shoes. Red flats with a bow. Seven dollars a pair. What kind of shoes can you get for that price? I wondered. It reminded me of an episode of "That Girl" starring Marlo Thomas. If...

Hello, Winter. It's me. Nathan. I think we need to talk. I can appreciate what you're doing, Winter. You got a bit of a late start last year, and now that you've dug in, you don't want to go. You're like a tick that way, and I can appreciate it. But Winter? I don't much care for...

Student voices: Good and bad in last week's snow day
Last week I had the first snow day I have had in a few years. There is this myth that my school district doesn't give any snow days, but that has been proven wrong. In fact, my sophomore year is the only year I can remember in which I did not have either a snow day or a two-hour-delay. The...
