The place was blessedly packed for Peter Hausmann's Memorial Mass, on the fifth anniversary of the I-35W Bridge collapse and his heroic attempt to save others in the Mississippi River. Not only were St. Joe's parishioners packing the pews; folks from all around Dakota County and the Twin Cities were there in support of the Hausmanns and St. Joe's parishioners. Rosemount mayor Bill Droste and numerous city administrators and officials joined the somber and joyful gathering. Perhaps one of the finest eulogies I have ever heard was given by Peter and Helen Hausmann's daughter Justina.
Sitting in the room Monday night as the Rosemount City Council interviewed its three police chief finalists, one thing quickly became clear: Rosemount was going to hire an excellent chief. All three of the finalists -- Apple Valley captain Michael Marben, longtime Rosemount lieutenant Jewel Ericson and Burnsville captain Eric Werner, the council's eventual choice -- were impressive in their answers to council members and their ideas of what an effective police department should look like. While each had his own style, all three had some similar ideas.
Three incoming freshman volleyball players at Rosemount High School -- Katie Kalinowski, Brittany McLean and Erin Slinde -- were part of a Northern Lights 14-1's Junior Olympic team that placed 15th at the AAU Girls Junior National Championships June 20-23 in Orlando. The team went on to place 10th in the USAV Girls Junior National Championships in Columbus, Ohio, June 30-July 3. McLean and Slinde also tried out for the USA Volleyball High Performance Training Teams. Slinde made the A3 Youth Team and attended camp in Edmond, Okla., earlier this month.
The Rosemount Black Sox seemed to get a big hit every time they needed one during their three-game winning streak last week. Those clutch hits were nowhere to be found Sunday afternoon against the Rochester Royals. The Sox pounded out 10 hits, including three apiece from Brady Loew and Mark Radmacher, but left 12 runners on base in a 3-2 setback. "The lineup looked pretty spectacular offensively," Rosemount player/manager Lance Anderson said. "We just didn't put the hits together." Still, the Sox led 2-1 through eight innings thanks to another quality start from Michael Robohm.
Strong storms swept through the region early Tuesday morning, knocking down trees and cutting off power to many Rosemount residents. Public works director Andy Brotzler said most of the damage in Rosemount was concentrated in the southwest corner of the city. Brotzler said crews were out starting early Tuesday morning clearing roads and picking up debris. All roads were clear by Tuesday afternoon. The storm also knocked out power to two sewer lift stations. Generators were brought in to keep the lifts operational. One house had severe roof damage and fences were knocked over.
I sit here, just after my high school graduation, and can't help but suffer from nostalgia. Pictures are strewn across the walls of my room showing much of my past. Movie tickets, artwork I have done, pictures of friends and family. My favorite books are on the shelves and even my first article for the Town Pages. They are there as reminders of where I have been, and next to all of the mementos reminding me of my past is my college acceptance letter, so when I wake up in the morning I can make sure its real. It's actually happening.

While theywaited, one pulled out a BB gun and started playing with it.
