As a 25-year resident of the Crescenta Valley and being informed about the Town Council and attending meetings since they were being held at the community center in Crescenta Valley Park, I feel the Community Commentary by Don and Esther Norbut ("Town Council's efforts should be appreciated by the entire community," Dec. 27) was very one-sided. First of all, you are newcomers to the Town Council and need a history of the Town Council. Go to www.yourtown council.

A rain shower appeared out of blue skies early Sunday evening. We grabbed an umbrella and dashed to the car through the pelting rain. Bob and I drove a little over a mile into Montrose to the Light on the Corner Church. The dark clouds must have passed over the courtyard of the church without releasing a single raindrop.
