Transcript NEWS JANUARY 21, 2000 • HOUSTON VOICE eaxz&j t^<X€m^aM^a otw HE STRONGEST IDEAS have always been the simplest ones. The ones that grow from vision. At Chase Texas, it is our vision to manage diversity as we would any other strategic resource. We have made diversity an integral component of our culture because we know that bringing collective experiences and skills to the table enables us to do things that none of us could do alone. A simple idea that inspires great rewards. 1Tk CHASE \J The right relationship is everything.™ Member FDIC Around the Nation President marks MLK Day with call for hate crime protection WASHINGTON (AP)—President Clinton marked Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday on Jan. 15 by urging Congress to step up civil rights enforcement and expand the federal hate crimes law to include those motivated by bias on the basis of sexual orientation, gender and disability. "There are still too many barriers and examples of too many Americans facing discrimination in their daily lives," even though the country is doing better in treating all citizens equally, the president said in his weekly radio address. A move to expand the law died last year because of opposition from Republicans in Congress. Two AIDS hospice officials accused of stealing federal grants NEW ORLEANS (AP)—Two former administrators of a New Orleans AIDS hospice have been accused of spending federal grant money on trips to a French Quarter bar and a Mississippi casino, former Executive Director Sherman David Kiviaho, 38, was booked Dec. 29 for the theft of more than $500 and for forgery. An arrest warrant has also been issued for Carlos Anderson, 36, the center's ex-operations manager. Investigators determined that $1,000 in cash was billed at the bar to a corporate American Express card and similar charges were run up at a casino. "They were shopping sprees," said Kym Whitfield, a center client advocate, estimating that as much as $200,000 had been misspent. Ohio Gov. removes 'sexual orientation' from discrimination policy CLEVELAND (AP)—Gov. Bob Taft removed "sexual orientation" from a policy banning employment bias in Ohio government last year. Taft's executive order was issued at the end of August and declares his administration's goal to "ensure that all Ohio citizens have equal employment opportunity" in state jobs. Taft spokesman Scott Milburn said the governor intentionally deleted the sexual orientation language because he didn't want to favor any group. "We're not going to go down a laundry list of groups," Milbum said. "Is he going to list specific groups? That's really a Pandora's box." Officials with gay rights groups responded that Taft's revision is < I a setback. "It rolls back years of state policy," said Jeff ^ I Redfield, executive director of the Stonewall Community Center in Columbus. Ohio's two prior gov- < | ernors, Democrat Richard Celeste and Republican George Voinovich, included a specific reference to sexual orientation in their non-discrimination orders. Celeste lirst issLied the order in 1984and Voinovich continued it, but allowed it to lapse at the end of his second term so that his successor could establish his own policies. Three women sue magazine for photo that alleges they're lesbians NEW YORK (AP)—Three young women have sued liiitna magazine for $60 million, alleging that the bilingual glossy used a group photograph of them without their permission to illustrate an article on gav issues. The photo, in the magazine's November 1999 -hows the three—two sisters and their cousin—with their heads together and smiling broadly over the article's title, "My Child Is Gay. Que llago? (What do I do?)" The women are Peggy Castillo, 24, her sisler Jennifer, 18, and their cousin Jamie Castillo, 21. The lawsuit, tiled Jan. 11, also names the photographer as a defendant and charges that the magazine's use of the picture defamed and libeled them and violated their civil rights by using their likenesses for commerce. The suit charges that the accompanying article by 1 eila Cobo-Hanlon caused the community in which the women live "to believe that the plaintiffs were homosexual and that the plaintiffs were now revealing their sexual orientation to the public at large by virtue of the appearance of these photographs." NJ. student beaten, Mich, students threatened for being gay ELMWOOD PARK, NJ. (AP)—A 16-year-old high school student was allegedly beaten by a classmate because he was gay, and school officials did not report the incident to police The victim went to police headquarters and told officers he was beaten near the school gymnasium around 1:30 p.m., when a freshman tackled him and punched him repeatedly in the face and body until teachers were able to separate them. The younger boy had threatened his gay classmate earlier in the week, according to the police report. Principal Michael Nazzaro declined comment on why he did not call police. Meanwhile, in Holland, Mich., a 15-year-old boy already serving a four-month sentence in a juvenile detention facility has pleaded no contest to charges of ethnic intimidation. Prosecutors sav the boy compiled a hit list thai targeted minority students at Macatawa Bay School.
