The city of Rosemount has made it a priority in recent years to make its streets friendlier for bikers. The next step, it seems, is helping residents realize just how easy it can be to take to two wheels. Two recent efforts are aimed at removing some of the barriers that might keep people from getting on their bike. The first, which went live recently on the city's website, is a series of profiles of local bikers. The idea, Rosemount planner Jason Lindahl said, is to help people understand they don't have to be superfit and in Spandex to start pedaling around town.
Mass started late last Sunday at St. Joseph Church in Rosemount. Father Paul Jarvis just couldn't get away from the crowd of parishioners who kept coming up to say hello, to say they were glad to see him, to wish him well.
Today is the day we here in the United States pause to celebrate our independence from British rule. Well, probably not today. If you’re reading this issue of the Independent...
Rosemount residents can get their first look at a long-discussed senior housing facility and community gathering space at a public meeting planned for 7 p.m. July 11 at city hall. The city and developer Wally Johnson will present plans for the facility, which will be built on the former site of St. Joseph School, as well as talk about its integration into the neighborhood and the use of a planned 5,000-square-foot activity space that will be part of the building.
We're not really singers in our office, but we're still more than a little intrigued by the event scheduled to take place next week at Rosemount's Robert Trail Library. On July 12, an as-yet undetermined number of people from Rosemount and the surrounding area will gather at the library and, with the help of some professional song leaders, sing like crazy. Loud or quiet, on key or off, it doesn't matter. It's not about the quality of the singing so much as it's about getting together as a group and doing something.
Nicole Frovik says Independent School District 196 feels like home for her, and it's not hard to understand why. The new Parkview Elementary School principal has been here all of her life. Frovik grew up in the district. Her father was a teacher at Rosemount High School and Apple Valley High School. She got a job teaching at Parkview in 1997, and after seven years in the classroom at different grade levels, she made the transition to media specialist at the school, a job she held for another eight years.
From the arrival of the first settlers on the banks of the Mississippi River up through the Space Age and beyond, Rosemount's history has been on Maureen Geraghty Bouchard's mind a lot lately. For the past 3 ½ years she has been surrounded by it, living it, breathing it and putting it all down on paper.
