City Councilman Chad Lewis says he's a man who relishes tradition. And in Rapid City, S.D., that means starting each council session with a brief prayer led by a local minister. But now that practice is under attack by a national organization that has filed lawsuits in other cases nationwide involving the separation of church and state. The Madison, Wis.-based Freedom From Religion Foundation recently sent a letter to Rapid City officials saying that it received a complaint from a South Dakota citizen who objects to the invocations before each public meeting.

Regarding "In Patriotic Times, Rushmore Calls" (June 2): I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota. In the early 1930s my parents drove us out from Rapid City, S.D., to see Gutzon Borglum carving the four American presidents. We spread out a picnic lunch under some pine trees and gazed upward at the growing monument. My siblings, Melvin and Viola, tried to climb the rock until a park ranger chased them away.
