Dakota County's prescription-drug disposal program is coming to Farmington, and that's a good thing. Home medicine cabinets have gotten increasing scrutiny in recent years as sources for recreational drugs. Kids take unused drugs from their parents. Adults steal from adults. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2009 16 million Americans 12 and older had taken a prescription pain reliever, tranquilizer, stimulant or sedative for a purpose other than its intended use at least once in the year prior to the survey.

School security has been on a lot of parents' minds since the shooting last month in Newtown, Conn. It makes sense. While schools are still among the safest places a child can be, a high-profile incident like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School is sure to make an impact. That's what brought parents, police officers and school employees together earlier this week at Farmington High School for a district-run discussion of what is being done to keep students safe, and what changes can be made to make them safer. The focus for much of the night was on the elementary level.

There was a little hesitation Monday when the Farmington School Board discussed a possible move to the South Suburban Conference. Echoing concerns she said she'd heard from other parents in the district, board member Julie Singewald raised the possibility that a move from the relatively small-school Missota Conference to the larger schools of the South Suburban might hurt participation in sports at Farmington High School. Bigger schools, the theory goes, will mean tougher competition. Tougher competition will mean more losses.
