A Farmington woman has been charged with the theft of $95,000 from the Lakeville bank where she worked. The Dakota County Attorney's office charged Leah Marie Bremner, 31, with felony theft by swindle for the thefts, which are alleged to have occurred between May and October of 2010. "This is a significant economic crime and is the 19th theft over $50,000 during the last five years in Dakota County," county attorney James Backstrom said Friday. Bremner made her first court appearance May 3. Judge Timothy McManus set bail at $10,000 without conditions or $5,000 with conditions.

Plenty of people think they have a lousy job. They daydream about winning the lottery or about writing the Great American Novel or, if the research I did for last week's column is any indication, about finding a generous sugar daddy to keep them in the manner to which they would like to become accustomed. For most, though, it's all idle complaints. Maybe their job is bad. Maybe it's just a lousy day. For the most part, it's all just a matter of opinion. I, on the other hand, have proof.
There was some concern in recent weeks about what our extended winter weather might mean for Farmington's annual park and pond cleanup event. Would people sign up, knowing it was possible the trash they were meant to collect would be buried under snowdrifts? Would everyone need to bring their own shovel? In the end, of course, concerns about weather turned out to be misplaced. Somewhere late last week, spring decided to show itself. Snow melted.
