Farmington and Rosemount residents have a long history of serving their country, and both cities have developed strong traditions of paying tribute to those who lost their lives in service. Those traditions will continue Sunday and Monday with a series of ceremonies. Activity starts Sunday in Farmington and continues to Memorial Day itself Monday. Rosemount will hold its traditional Memorial Day ceremony Monday morning. The Monday morning events have become popular in both cities.
The Farmington girls track team used the Pat Foley Classic to tune up for the upcoming Missota Conference and Section 1AA Championships. No team score was kept at the four-team get-together last Thursday, but the Tigers made their presence felt by winning eight of the meet's 18 events. Coach Tom Hart added some intrigue by separating his best runners into different relays to give them a chance to run against each other. "The ladies were divided up to compete against each other and to give me a chance to see how we compete," Hart said.

Over-the-counter medications and prescriptions can pollute our waters and be harmful to humans, fish, and other wildlife when disposed of improperly- please do not flush medications down the toilet or place in the trash. The Dakota County Sheriff, Attorney, and Environmental Management Offices, along with their law enforcement partners, have teamed together to offer the public a place to safely and anonymously dispose of medications in disposal receptacles, which allows people to remove old and unused prescriptions from homes and possibly out of the hands of people who could abuse those drugs

A garden can be a wonderful thing. It is a way to get outside, to connect with the Earth, to bring more healthful foods into your day-to-day diet. It can also be much more than that, a fact that is becoming clearer all the time in Farmington and Rosemount. The trend started a few years ago when the Farmington School District launched its community garden. The modest plot provided a place for people who didn't have garden space in their own yard to grow something of their own. It was a gathering place. It also did good.
