Emergency workers in Farmington and Rosemount are equipped to handle a lot. They're well prepared to take care of the kinds of situations they are likely to encounter on a day-to-day basis. Every once in a while, though, something out of the ordinary comes along. Like a man getting trapped in a silo, as happened a few years ago in Farmington.

Farmington's First Presbyterian Church has a new pastor, only she's not actually new to the church. Sound confusing? Not really. See, Rev. Jean Greenwood started her pastoral career in Farmington, and now, she's come back to guide the congregation again. Greenwood originally came to First Presbyterian in 1988 and served here until 1991. It was her first experience as a solo pastor out of seminary, and much of what she learned for her future, she learned in Farmington. "They were my tutors, my training ground," Greenwood said.

It's a chance to highlight some of the good things that are going on, not dwell on problems. But both Farmington and Rosemount have some things to be happy about. The housing market is picking up, for one.
