They came from across the country. Many sickly with respiratory problems, tuberculosis, or other health needs. They came to a valley of clean air and land available for the asking. In the 1870s, the La Cañada/Crescenta Valley area was a land of plenty for health-seekers. The health-seekers whose names have become synonymous with the history of the Foothills. Of those names, few are more familiar to La Cañadans than the Lanterman family. Jacob Lanterman, a dentist from Lansing, Mich.

Imagine yourself playing a word association game with me. I say, "Quark." What's your response? Someone with a strong science background might recognize "quark" as a quantum physics term. If you've used a certain computer program, you'll reply, "express." Only a few respondents will say, "cheese."

I can understand how Daphne Hampson reached her conclusions with respect to women's rights, for example, that Christianity "is neither true nor moral," that there is "need for a paradigm shift in religion," even her decision to "discard Christianity," as she defines it. And yet she retains her deep conviction of God's existence.

On Monday and Tuesday, the first-ever religious summit on HIV/AIDS was held in The Netherlands, according to a report on United Nations Radio. The two-day Summit of High Level Religious Leaders on the Response to HIV brought together Bahá’í , Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh leaders. Participants addressed the realities of how stigma and discrimination are perpetuated both in religious communities and in society at large.
