As of the March 7 issue, you will notice some changes to our newspaper. We will combine the news content of the Farmington Independent and Rosemount Town Pages into one newspaper starting next week. What this means for you is that your paper will be larger, with more news about our two communities. We will not change the way we cover Rosemount, and you can expect the same extensive coverage that we currently provide. The only difference is that the name of the paper will become the Independent Town Pages, and you will also receive news from Farmington.
