Rosemount Wrestling would like to thank the Southern Hills Golf Course, the Knights of Columbus, the Rosemount community and our local businesses for again supporting our annual golf tournament fundraiser. This one fundraiser funds over 70 percent of our season. Every year we have families that golf with us that have never had a son in Irish wrestling. We have many golfers that have golfed all six years and again, many of those do not have wrestlers. It is wonderful to see the support from all the wrestling families and the non-wrestling families.
To the editor, Considering that Rosemount is the only city in the area without a senior center, I feel compelled to voice my opinion.
The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District is making plans for its first new building since Eastview High School opened in 1997.
There are signs a new road in Rosemount is having the desired effect, but its is not yet clear just how fast progress will come. The city of Rosemount is about a month away from finishing work on an extension of 149th Street north of County Road 42.

Next week, Dakota County Technical College will once again host its Teens eXperiencing Technical education program. The week-long program encourages girls grades 5 through 8 to think about and explore careers in technical fields through workshops and demonstrations. In its three year history, the program has evolved from working with Best Buy's Geek Squad, to combining Geek Squad with classes at DCTC, to a completely DCTC-based program. "We figured we had enough stuff to do we could do it the whole week," said Linda Foster, Instructional Technology Director at DCTC.
It's been nearly six years since I bought my house. In all of those years, I've never had air conditioning. Not central air. Not a window unit. Not even a Flintstone-style pterodactyl that would cool me with flaps of it's giant, leathery wings while occasionally making wisecracks to some unseen audience. It's too bad, because that last one would be pretty sweet. Aside from the part where it probably would have eaten me because I forgot to lay in an adequate supply of prehistoric rats or whatever it is pterodactyls eat.
Residents in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District appear willing to open their wallets for a new school levy, but maybe not as far as district administrators would have hoped.
