In today's political arena, remaining well informed is a full-time job. There are so many players, versions, lies and spin. Never have we needed informed clear-eyed voters as much as we do this election cycle. To understand better and to fill in a lot of details and timelines since the 1980s, watch two new 2018 documentaries: "Active Measures," directed by Jack Bryan, available on Amazon Prime Video (and hopefully other medium soon?) It deserves the widest audience!
My family has enjoyed living in Rosemount for the past 10 years. Our neighborhood has a rural feel to it, which is why we moved to here. We especially love it for the space we have on our property which allows our children to run and play, and occasionally riding a motorized mini bike. Like all folks who live in a neighborhood, we must put up with the occasional noise of lawn mowers, chain saws, hammers, trains and airplanes.
It's been gratifying to see the progress our society has made to be more inclusive of people with disabilities. I expect opportunities for employment, independent living and community involvement to continue to increase. There are many reasons for this, but one that's worth noting is the role of direct-support professionals. These are caring people who work hard to assist individuals with disabilities to achieve their goals. They make their lives better in many ways. ProAct employs more than 100 direct support professionals across its six locations.
Most of us would jump at the chance to make a quick $300,000. So what if you have to stretch the law to make it work? And so what if you, the government, goes along with it? In 2016, Poplar Grove Farms bought 80 acres of land southeast of Farmington for $200,000. Just a couple years earlier, the CapX 2020 partners paid $430,000 to condemn it under the "Buy The Farm" law. This land was somewhat unique: all but 25 acres was wetlands.
With summer near its end, we in Rosemount are proud to look back at the good times our residents have enjoyed during this year's community celebrations. And we are excited to share more info about a new event that will welcome us into the fall — a Food Truck Festival.
Safely get rid of your household hazardous waste, electronics and more at one-day drop-off events held in Farmington and Burnsville. Drop-off events are open to all Dakota County residents. Upcoming events will be:
大家好！Welcome to the final installment of my accounts from China. As my trip in Xi'an is coming to a close, I've had lots of time to reflect on my growth as both a language learner and a person. I'm so incredibly grateful for this opportunity to not only grow myself, but connect with people halfway across the world.
This week marks the fourth week I, Olivia Alberts, will be in Xi'an, China, with the NSLI-Y program. Throughout these four weeks I've been so lucky to experience so many different aspects of Chinese culture, from centuries old temples to modern shopping centers and restaurants. The mix of rich history and cutting edge technology is, in my opinion, what makes Xi'an so fascinating.
This week we are enjoying another of our great community celebrations that make Rosemount such a vibrant place to live. The 2018 version of Leprechaun Days is entertaining folks of all ages and drawing many from other communities. Here at City Hall, our parking lot is transforming into a carnival. The Midsummer Faire will run Friday and Saturday, leading up to the fireworks Saturday night. You'll want to get a vantage point early in Central and Erickson parks for the aerial show, which has been called one of the best in the metro.
