Large-scale demolition work started Monday morning on the former St. Joseph school on Highway 3. The building is being knocked down to make way for a planned senior housing development and public senior center. Crews have been working inside the building for several days to prepare for the demolition, removing hazardous materials and doing other jobs. Two backhoes got to work knocking the building down early Monday. The building has stood for nearly 60 years, but has been empty since the school moved to a new location next to a new church building.

This week's Pet of Week is Mocha, a greyhound mix. Mocha has tiger-like striping which makes her a really unique looking dog. Staff at Shamrock Animal Hospital said she's a sweet girl but she's energetic and needs a place to run, so a fenced in yard would be best. Mocha is 3 years old and was picked up as a stray. She will be spayed and brought up to date on vaccinations before adoption. The cost to adopt Mocha is $225. Shamrock Animal Hospital is located at 14390 S. Robert Trail in Rosemount.

News articles, televised satires and yard signs are already abundant and will only continue to grow in appearance as November approaches. I respect the candidates' rights to campaign, but the extent and negativity of these campaigns is truly mind-boggling to me. You could say that my opinion doesn't matter because I am 17 and unable to vote.
