As one of the multitude dismayed by the cancellation of the Thursday night family festival in Montrose, I was even more disheartened by the recent comments in your paper by merchant association board member Linda Strack, stating that the new farmers' market, which will take place on Sundays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., will be "very family-friendly." How "family friendly" can it be to first eliminate all the kid-related activities, and then to effectively exclude families who choose to attend church on Sundays?

Important evidence of our Rep. James Rogan's extremism has been hiding in a Congress subcommittee, no doubt to keep it from spurring election-year arguments. It'll come back out, though, if the religious right gains big in November. A year ago last week, a constitutional amendment (H.J. Res. 66) was reintroduced in the House to much hoopla -- with Rogan as co-sponsor. It would effectively eliminate the separation of church and state given us by the 1st Amendment.

Marshall Allen LA CRESCENTA -- Foothill Christian Church has welcomed its new pastor, the Rev. Galen Goben, and he aims to be heard. Goben, 41, is a progressively minded minister who says churches as an institution, not just Foothill Christian Church, are at a crossroads. "Society and culture are finding it easier to relegate the church to a place of irrelevance," Goben said. Goben was welcomed to Foothill Christian on Sunday. While society may see the church as irrelevant, it still has the "good news of Jesus" to share, Goben said.
