Chuck Brooks' column: A few thoughts on aging with grace
I saw a movie today. Mr. Holmes. It was not along the lines of the recent Sherlock Holmes pictures with Robert Downey Jr. Nor was I expecting it to be. It’s a product of BBC Films, so you know it’s going to be worthy of your time. It was with Ian McKellen as the 93-year old H...

Nathan Hansen's column: Staring into the blackness
We’re going on a month now since my television set gave up the ghost mid-Netflix binge, and my life thus far does not seem to have been thrown into any particular state of chaos. I’m not weeping or tearing my hair out or acting out reruns of The Big Bang Theory with sock...

Reporter Emily Zimmer says good bye
For more than eight years, I have had the honor of covering Rosemount news. This edition will be the last for me. Mon-day I start a graduate program and I have taken a part-time position. I believe this is a good move for me professionally and personally. It will give me some...

Editorial: Expand fishing options on the Vermillion River
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is considering a change to fishing rules on the Vermillion River. They hope to draw more people to the aquatic and wildlife management areas near Farmington. We think it’s a great idea. The DNR has put a lot of time and effort...

Chuck Brooks' column: A lifetime of pets
A friend of mine recently had to say goodbye to her dog as her pet got into some pills when no one was looking and not much could be done once ingested. Having grown up with at least two dogs in the house at all times, I understand having to say goodbye to “man’s best friend.”...

City notes: Events keep residents engaged
One of the joys of summer is that it’s easier to come together as a community. Today Rosemount is between two great events that bring us closer. Leprechaun Days has just completed a successful run. And the Night to Unite block parties are just ahead. My colleagues on the city...

Chuck Brooks' column: On a post-parade high
I am writing this to you two hours after the Leprechaun Days Parade experience. I say “experience” because it was that and more. As you may well know, I was honored to be the Grand Marshal for this year’s parade. Why me? Something about retiring after 33 years of teaching and...

You like to think you’ll react well when the end finally comes. That you’ll accept the reality of the situation, wipe a single, manly tear from the corner of your eye and get on with the business of your life. And, honestly, I think I did pretty well. It’s never easy to...

Welcome to the weekend that kicks off Leprechaun Days Week here in Rosemount. I know they have lots of fun planned for the week ahead, but as you all most likely know, it kicks off this Saturday with the annual Leprechaun Days Parade. And that’s where my story begins this week. ...
