Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- His gait says it all. As a boy, James Rogan decided he wanted to walk like one of his heroes, President Harry S. Truman, who he had read took 120 paces per minute. Today, Glendale's 42-year-old Republican congressman keeps Truman's confident and hurried pace. His life is filled with instances in which he envisioned what he wanted to do and did it, regardless of the obstacles. At 14, the boy who was then an ardent Democrat but interested in anything political decided to attend the 1972 Republican National Convention.

We need a true Californian in the House of Representatives from our 27th district. On paper, Texas now has 30 representatives in the House. In reality they have 31. James Rogan was elected to represent our 27th district. He went to Washington and promptly became the puppet of two ultraconservative Texans: Republican House majority leader Richard Armey and Republican whip Tom Delay. They are such bad news that they were not allowed to speak at the Republican National Convention which nominated George W. Bush.

Letter-writer John Queen seems to have the same habit of lying to the public as Adam Schiff. I'm black and I was there when James Rogan spoke. Rogan said that abortion had managed to do to the black family what the Klan wanted to do along, kill your babies. He was right, and all African-Americans should thank him for telling the truth and support him. It is time for the black community to wake up and stop letting the Democrats and Adam Schiff make fools of us. Vote Black, Free and Proud, Vote Rogan BILL WILLIAMSON Pasadena

Robert Shaffer GLENDALE -- When final results came in early Wednesday, Adam Schiff beat James Rogan in a primary that means nothing but bragging rights.

Libertarian Ted Brown finished third, receiving 2% of the vote, 152 votes ahead of Natural Law candidate Miriam Hospodar.

I am disturbed at some of the comments I've been reading in the Glendale News-Press lately regarding which candidate is best for office -- James Rogan or Adam Schiff. Now, part of a certain group wants Rogan because they feel he can best serve their personal goals -- others want Schiff for the same reason. Isn't the best man for the job, in fact the one that serves all equally? Please remember what United means when you refer to the United States of America.

I would like to offer my comments on the recent health care commercials by our congressman, James Rogan. Congressman Rogan's commercial highlights his position on patients' rights, while contrasting that with Adam Schiff's view that lawsuit attorney's should control health care. I happen to agree with Congressman Rogan and think he is doing a fine job working to protect my rights as a patient when I am in the care of a doctor or hospital. Unfortunately, Adam Schiff chose to make a negative comment in your paper saying Congressman Rogan is "dishonest."

David Silva NEXT WEEK, THEY'LL BE DUELING WITH SWORDS It probably won't get any warm and fuzzier between these two guys for awhile. Congressional opponents James Rogan and Adam Schiff ran into each other early election day as both dined at an International House of Pancakes in Glendale. Rogan was just leaving the restaurant in a van when Schiff ran up to him. "You can run but you can't hide!" Schiff shouted good-naturedly at the Republican congressman.

I am sick and tired of all the campaign mail that I have received from Adam Schiff. I am a registered Republican and strong supporter of Rep. James Rogan. I have called Schiff's office numerous times and asked to be taken off of the list, but I still receive mail from him. I think Schiff's mail is hateful and divisive. Schiff tries to distort the facts about his opponent. Schiff's latest mailer distorts a photograph of his opponent. Schiff's campaign tactics are shameful.

I have never been involved in any political activity until James Rogan ran for the state Assembly. During his first run for the Assembly, I received one of his political fliers, which convinced me to send a contribution (the first I had sent to any political campaign). Subsequently, I had the opportunity to meet Rogan. During his second campaign for the Assembly, I became a volunteer in his reelection. God has blessed me with an extraordinary life.

Robert Shaffer GLENDALE -- Long a bastion of conservative politics, Glendale changed in 1996. Gone were longtime Republicans who held office for decades. For the first time, Glendale's representatives became a majority of Democrats, as Adam Schiff, Jack Scott and Scott Wildman rode into town. The only Republican holdout was James Rogan, a former Assemblyman who still holds the congressional seat that Republicans have owned since the Depression.

In the congressional election between Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) and James Rogan, the community of La Crescenta strongly supported Schiff. Soon after that election, the Democratic Party drew up plans to redistrict the state of California. The community of La Crescenta was regrouped with La Verne, Glendora and Covina. But where was Schiff? He was silent on the issue. This was a chance not only to fight for his constituents but fight to keep them.

Karen S. Kim Libertarian congressional candidate Ted Brown says he's ready for Round 2 with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale). The insurance investigator from Arcadia was the fourth vote-getter and virtually forgotten candidate in the much-publicized race two years ago between then incumbent James Rogan, who is now the U.S. Trademark Office director. But the experience didn't discourage Brown, who ended up receiving 1.7% of the vote. "It was a fascinating campaign because I was trying to push myself in wherever I could," Brown, 41, said.

Janine Marnien LA CRESCENTA -- U.S. Trademark Office Director and former congressman James Rogan stressed the importance of supporting GOP candidates in the upcoming election at a joint meeting of three foothill Republican clubs. Tuesday night's event was held by the Foothills Republican Club, University Club of Pasadena and the Crescenta Valley Federated Republican Women. It was a welcome-home tribute to Rogan, the keynote speaker. "The problem with this party is that we're afraid to take our message to people we think don't want to hear it," Rogan told a crowd of about 150 at the University Club of Pasadena.

This page recently ran two columns relating to President George W. Bush nominating me to be director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The basis of the writer's complaint was that some years ago, my congressional Web site hosted a newspaper article without identifying the name of either the newspaper or the author. I appreciate the opportunity of explaining the underlying facts. My former office contracted out maintenance of our official Web site to a professional company.

Letters to the Community Forum that I have observed over the years have run the gamut from eloquently coherent to irrational nonsense, but Jason Roe's letter ("Will Rogers simply jealous of Rogan," June 15), wins the grand prize for being the most absurdly imbecilic letter (hit piece) I have yet to read. In it, he claims that poor Will has been so down on Rogan because Will is simply green with envy over Rogan's enormous accomplishments. I obviously can't speak for Will, but I'm personally darned glad I'm not James Rogan, much less being envious of him. And I'd bet the farm that that's how Will feels.

Claudia Peschiutta James Rogan has taken to describing himself as an unemployed private citizen. Others would have the former Glendale congressman become much more than that. Several rumors about Rogan's future have been flying around since the two-term representative lost his reelection bid to Democrat Adam Schiff on Nov. 7. "I want to go back to bartending, but I'm not nearly as quick on those bottles as I used to be," Rogan joked, referring to his younger days, when he mixed drinks to support himself.

I am an 18-year-old student at Crescenta Valley High School, and I find electing Adam Schiff the biggest mistake this area has seen. But being that he will be my next congressman, I felt I would like express some issues important to me.. This past election year, I was assigned to work on a campaign, and I had the opportunity to work for Schiff or James Rogan. I decided to work for Rogan. Schiff is very fortunate that this area has become increasingly Democratic, otherwise there would be no way he would have been elected.

Just a few words in Will Rogers' defense. I enjoy his columns. Please keep them in the News-Press. Tim Rosales' diatribe against Rogers is fitting for the kind of campaign that was waged by and for James Rogan. I suspect the tonnage of vituperation that was sent out by their campaign may have earned votes for their opponent. In a two-week period we got more than 30 mailings telling what a terrible person Adam Schiff is. That alone would have been enough to convince me to vote for Schiff instead of Rogan.
