Michelle's column: Much has changed in 20 years
I’m not sure how this happened, but it turns out I’m just 12 days away from hitting my 20th anniversary of covering Farmington. I thought about this last week, while I was at Randy Ferguson’s retirement party at Dodge Middle School. Randy came into our office a couple of weeks...

Student column: School days are flying by
Summer is coming up fast. As of Friday, May 16, there were 21 days left until June 6. The time sure does fly. Especially once it gets to be the third and final trimester of the school year. First tri always seems to go slow. Many people are still in the summer mindset and don’t...

Nathan's column: The ultimate sports day
Tuesday was a big day in the world of Minnesota sports, and not just because it’s the day I finally realized the state has its own professional ultimate team. You know what ultimate is, right? It’s a little like football, except you play it with a flying disc that you definitely...

Michelle's column: An opportunity to show off Farmington
I have this friend — an online pen pal, really — who is coming to Farmington for the first time next week. She’s very excited about the trip. I’m just trying to figure out what to share with her when she gets here. Her name is Carolyn Quinn. She and I met about a year and...

Nathan's column: Farewell to a faithful friend
I bought a new car about a month ago. I think I mentioned that. It’s pretty nice. It gets me where I’m going. It doesn’t rattle over every tiny crack in the pavement or sound like the front end is coming off when I hit a pothole. That’s a particularly valuable quality this...

Student column: Enjoying some good sports stories
If you’re like me, going to the movies is a fun way to spend time with people. Recently, my good friend who moved out of state came back to visit and we went to a movie. Also, my family and I went out to the movie theater one weekend to do something together as a family. The movie...

Nathan's column: The science of tricking bugs
Science is a wonderful thing. Because of white-coated researchers in labs and computer scientists hunched over laptops we have traveled to space, developed a vaccine for polio and built robots that play soccer. Presumably, somebody somewhere is working on an American robot that does...

Michelle's column: Finding comfort in community
I know this may sound weird, but I’m going to say it anyway: there’s something comforting about coming to work. Specifically, coming to Farmington. Don’t get me wrong. I certainly love my job and my co-workers are awesome people who are likewise dedicated to the Farmington...

Nathan's column: My brief history with hockey
Sometime Monday night a woman named Alyssa Nelson stood up and did the kind of thing people do all the time at a hockey game: Aluminum bottle of Bud Lite Lime clutched firmly in one hand, she pounded on the glass with her free hand and yelled at one player to punch another player. I...

Student column: Help keep the Earth healthy
The recent warm weather mixed together with the snow finally melting creates a renewed love of being outside. There is plenty to enjoy about being outside, whether it’s the fresh air, the sound of birds chirping or the fresh aroma of flowers sprouting after a long, hard winter. Many...

Nathan's column: Dissolve yourself a drink
If you’ve been reading the Looking Back section of this newspaper recently, you know there was a lot of debate 100 years ago about whether liquor should be outlawed in Farmington. You also might know that if you’re just generally aware of history, I suppose. It was kind of a big...

Michelle's column: Friendly visits at the dog park
My 5-year-old niece and nephew were pretty jealous when, last weekend, I talked about taking my little dog, Rissa, to the dog park one afternoon. “Um, Michelle?” said Joe, “I would like to go to the park with you.” “Can we both come?” his twin sister, Emma, asked. “Sorry,...

Nathan's column: Get a leg up on prom season
Let’s talk for a second about prom, shall we? Prom season is right around the corner in Farmington and Rosemount. At most it’s around the corner and, like, halfway down the block. But it’s close. By at least one report, area malls are teeming with teen girls and their mothers...

Having an emotional attachment to a movie is not uncommon. It’s happened in the past, it’s happening now and it will happen in the future. The movies that create these kinds of attachments are most commonly ones that have been made from a popular book. A movie series from the...

Nathan's column: On the road to robot rule
Science fiction is full of terrifying stories about artificial intelligence gone wrong. There are movies about apes that gain intelligence and decide they want more than a fistful of bananas or robots that turn on their creators. And you just know Rosie was up to something on The...
