The Rosemount girls hockey team overcame a 2-0 deficit against Eastview last Tuesday night, but eventually saw its losing streak stretch to four games after a 4-3 loss at Rosemount Community Center. Marie Griffith got the Irish (3-8-2) on the board with a goal (assist to Alex Malecha) 9:59 into the second period. Five minutes later, Kendra Goodrich scored on the power play (assist to Lauren Riley) to tie the score at 2-2. The game remained tied until Eastview scored what turned out to be the game-winner 3:47 into the third period.
Sarah McComb and Shara Schmidt have worked as nannies for a long time. Both women know how amazing the relationship between the right family and nanny can be. They also know how the wrong fit can turn into a terrible experience for both. "We've heard a lot of horror stories," said Schmidt. With that experience the two women have started Hand in Hand Nanny Agency. Through the business, McComb and Schmidt hope to use their expertise to bring families and nannies together. The company pairs qualified nannies with families for part-time and full-time, live-in and live-out positions.

This week's Pets of the Week are Thelma and Louise, two tiny mixed breed dogs. The two little dears were found together abandoned. They are nice dogs who could use some training. The two dogs love each other so staff would like for them to be adopted together but understand if that's not possible. Cost to adopt is $300 each. Staff said there will be a discount if they are adopted together. Shamrock Animal Hospital is located at 14390 S. Robert Trail in Rosemount. Phone: 651-423-3565

As the city's planning and personnel secretary, Kathie Hanson has a lot thrown at her. She's all right with that. But it's still nice to be recognized.

"I was not really expecting it at all," said Hanson. Hanson was nominated for the recognition by employees in the two departments in which she works -- community development and administration.
