Your May 31 article "Wedding in the park" carried the sub-heading "Vows are exchanged in Montrose hub, upsetting some businesses." It should have read "Couple tries to help Montrose businesses, gets kicked in the teeth for their efforts."
This young couple wanted to celebrate their love, and in doing so wanted to support the businesses that have made Montrose the gem it is today. They gave $20,000 to the local economy, and some of the businesses had the audacity to complain? Shame on them for their shortsightedness, and for not displaying the warm sense of community that people have come to love about Montrose.
Montrose has become much more to the Crescenta Valley than just a retail area. It's become a community center, hosting such events as the Arts and Craft Festival, Oktoberfest and the weekly Harvest Market. These events all close Honolulu, as this wedding did, and just like the wedding, they all bring business to the shopping park as a whole.
