If Bernie Schwab and Terry Johnson were more superstitious people, they might not have started their business when they did. They might have waited a day, or a week. How can you expect people to take you seriously, after all, when you open your doors for the first time on April 1?
To the editor,
It's a little bit strange to watch armed police officers storm into a school room you know well. Rosemount High School's performing arts center has seen its share of intense drama over the years, but the kind of playacting that took place there last Tuesday and Thursday was something very different.
The Farmington School District has closed the door, at least for this year, on the idea of asking voters for any extra money.

Moving boxes could figure in the near future for employees in the Farmington School District's central office. The district is working on plans that would move district employees from their downtown offices into space at Farmington High School.

The next step toward promoting school spirit at Farmington High School isn't an updated mascot or cheerier cheerleaders. It's a rock. A really big rock. Farmington High School's Youth Development Committee is making plans to install the so-called spirit rock near the student parking lot outside Farmington High School. Students will paint the rock over the course of the year to celebrate activities going on at the school.
Kids are screaming as police officers push through the doors of Rosemount High School's Performing Arts Center. Inside, they're sprawled on the floor or crouched in the seats, taking cover as best they can. On stage, a student with a gun holds a classmate hostage, threatening to kill him if police come any closer.
A lightning strike caused an early morning fire that destroyed a home in Rosemount June 21, and another might have started a fire a few miles south in Empire Township. The first fire was reported to Rosemount firefightersl around 4:20 a.m. Friday. According to fire chief Richard Schroeder, there was a lightning strike in the attic of the home on Derryglenn Ct. That strike started a fire that spread through the walls. Fire alarms and light smoke in the house woke the family and everyone got out without injury.
