More than two years after her sudden death, Kaleigh Faeh is still making a difference in Rosemount. Faeh was 13, an eighth grader at Rosemount Middle School, when she started to get sick. Within three days she was in the emergency room, and days after that she was in the ICU with a strep infection that sent her into septic shock. Her organs started to shut down, and she was sedated. She never woke up again.
The Rosemount Area Arts Council's annual Bluegrass Americana Weekend gets Leprechaun Days under way with a Friday night square dance in Central Park, then follows up with bluegrass and roots music Saturday and Sunday. In between, you can run a road race, check out some classic cars and go golfing to help the Rosemount Irish wrestling team. Read on to see what else is on the calendar.
Rosemount must be one of the most tuneful towns in Minnesota this week, with several musical performances marking this year's celebration of Leprechaun Days. And one group that will be performing on Saturday is especially close to our hearts - and soon to be shared with a national audience.
The Tour De France is going on right now. Roads across America’s favorite toast- and fry producing country have been filled since the beginning of July with men in stretchy...
It was hard not to get swept up in the excitement last Friday morning at Rosemount High School. Watching as the school held a celebration of its marching band's selection to participate in the 2014 Tournament of Rosemount parade, the thrill, the enthusiasm and the pride were almost palpable. They should be. This is a big deal.
When Leprechaun Days kicks off this weekend in Rosemount, the focus for most will be on music and parades and throwing water balloons at men and women pushing bathtubs. But there's more going on than just fair food and water fights. There is also a chance to give back.
Caroline Lambrecht wasn't a fan of storms to start with, so when lightning hit her Rosemount home around 8 a.m. July 9, it was about the worst thing that could have happened to the Rosemount Middle School sixth grader. Lambrecht was home alone at the time. She was in bed watching television when the bolt hit. "When it struck, it sounded like about three bombs went off," she said. "I froze, pretty much. It was just not really fun." The power went out. The TV started sparking. Caroline called her mom in tears, asked her to come home, then got dressed.
This week's pet of the week is a gray and white male tabby. He is about 9months old and has been at the Farmington Vet Clinic for about two weeks. He was surrendered by his owner along with another adult cat because the owner could no longer keep them. He is neutered, has all of his vaccinations and is ready for adoption. This cat is an extremely nice cat, and is looking for a good home.
When the city of Rosemount first wrote an ordinance to govern the installation of satellite dishes and solar panels, the technology for both was a whole lot different than it is today. Satellite dishes were yard-dominating pieces of equipment, not the modest gray discs stuck on roofs today. And solar panels were less effective and less popular.
