There will be smoke in the air Wednesday afternoon near Highway 52, but it's not a reason to panic. Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery will conduct a controlled burn starting at 4:30 p.m. April 4 on some prairie land near one of its administration buildings. The smoke may be visible from the highway. The burn will be overseen by local and state DNR officials as well as by Flint Hills, which owns 1,300 acres in the Pine Bend area.
This past week has been a much-needed break, as spring break finally arrived. Many of my friends traveled to Europe, or went on cruises this year for the break. Unfortunately, I do not get to go anywhere quite as exotic. But I do get to leave Rosemount for a few days for a short trip to Chicago. The main purpose of this trip is to visit colleges. There is a lot of business to get done, but I also expect to have fun exploring the large city. Perhaps the aspect I am most excited for is the method my mom and I chose to travel to the Windy City.
This week's Pet of the Week is Taylor, a 1- to 2-year-old female tabby who wasn't so sure she wanted to have her picture taken. She was left behind with some other animals when her owners abandoned their home in an Apple Valley trailer park. She is shy at first, but she warms up to people and can be very friendly. She is spayed and will be up to date on her shots before she is adopted. Shamrock Animal Hospital is located at 14390 S. Robert Trail in Rosemount. Phone: 651-423-3565

Last week, my husband and I celebrated 23 years of marriage. We bought a car, too. Sad to say, the anniversary paled in comparison to the new auto. We have been on the retail end of the automobile business for a combined 74 years. For almost all of those years, we have driven company cars called demonstrators. The free car was the reason I applied for the job in the first place. Now, I'm retired and don't even drive anymore. Because it is hard for me to get in and out of cars, my husband, who still works for Chevrolet, tries to get a small sport utility vehicle as a demo.
This week's Pet of the Week Jobe, an adult male cat. Jobe was abandoned with two other cats in Apple Valley. He's a mild mannered feline who would make a good pet. Before adoption he will be neutered and get updated shots. Inquire for cost information Shamrock Animal Hospital is located at 14390 S. Robert Trail in Rosemount. Phone: 651-423-3565
