Rosemount's American Legion is not just a bar and a restaurant, no more than any other Legion club is. It's not just a place for veterans to drink beer and share stories, either. It is a resource for the community, a vital partner in a number of community events and a donor that gives tens of thousands of dollars every year to local causes. That's why we're so happy to hear about the improvements made in recent months at the club.
Rosemount High School held its annual prom Saturday in St. Paul. Students dressed in their finest formalwear or, in one case, an outfit made of duct tape, for the event. The night started with a grand march at which students were introduced to a crowd of parents and friends with cameras. We've got a gallery of photos, but if you've got prom photos you'd like to share you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Rosemount High School choir students have earned recognition in several forms recently. Seven RHS sophomores and juniors have earned spots on next year's 11th- and 12th-grade Minnesota ACDA High School Honor Choir. Students were chosen based on a recorded audition. They will perform a new major work for choirs Nov. 18 at St.
Heading south out of Rosemount will require a little more thought next week. Highway 3 is closed south of 170th Street as Minnesota Department of Transportation crews replace a pipe beneath the highway just north of County Road 64. A detour beginning will route southbound traffic west on 160th Street or 170th Street to Pilot Knob Road, south and then back east to Highway 3. The project is scheduled to be done by 9 a.m. Saturday, May 19.

Fifth graders at Rosemount-area elementary schools put aside their pencils and books on Monday to compete on the track and in the field. The schools -- Rosemount, Shannon Park, Red Pine and Parkview elementary schools -- competed in their annual field day Monday at Rosemount High School's Irish Stadium. Young athletes took part in traditional track and field events like the 100-yard dash and the high jump as well as events like the jumprope speed jump and the soccer punt that you're not likely to see in the Olympics. Check out our gallery for photos from the event.
Inconsistent play left the Rosemount girls lacrosse team on both sides of a couple of big rallies last week. The Irish led by five goals in the second half of last Thursday's South Suburban Conference opener against Burnsville, but folded late and ended up losing, 10-9. A night later, the team fell behind 6-1 in the first half at Farmington before staging an improbable comeback and finishing off a 9-8 victory at Tiger Stadium. "Both games were a tale of two halves. We played very well in one and not as well in the other," Rosemount coach Jeff Smith said.
Two Destination ImagiNation teams from Rosemount schools have qualified for next month's Global Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The Argentina Apples from Shannon Park Elementary School finished first in the Solar Stage category at state competition earlier this month. Rosemount Middle School's TGIDI finished fourth in projectOUTREACH and won the Torchbearer Award. The Solar Stage challenge asked students to create and present a theatrical performance that tells a story about the use of solar energy, integrating research about past and current uses of solar power.
Rosemount High School senior Adam Jackson, son of Joel and Nicki Jackson, is Rotary Club of Rosemount's March Student of the Month. Adam is perhaps most known for his achievements as a wrestler at RHS. He was runner-up at state in the 152-pound weight class the last two years, named to the Guillotine's Academic First Team and received a number of honors from his team - including MVP two years in a row. He will wrestle at the US Air Force Academy next year. Adam was nominated to the Air Force Academy by Congressman John Kline and was very deliberate in making his choice.
