The bar, which closed in February, had a reputation as a "hustlC'r haven" and the building was thought by many to symbolize one of the mon• nf'gative elements of Mont· rosP. At that tim£', local civic leaders and politiC'ians prais(•d McConnell for this plans to OJ)(•n "Westheimer Village'," an $8 million shopping centc·r, on the sitc• whc•re thc• bar and surrounding houses once• stood. Councilman George GrC'a· niai-; said at the demolition ceremony that thc• projC'ct would undo the nC'gative imagc• of Low(•r Westheimer and "make it n better place to live." Today, the only shoppers on the site are gnats, mosquitoes and other deni· zens of weeds, and whAt wi11 happen lo the vacant lot and other McConnell propC'rtic•s is uncertain. Terry Phillips, a mrmhc•rofGreanias' staff, said McCon· nell is the "key player'' in the future of the projects. and he isn't talking. "It would be very hard to speculate on what will happen without knowing the circumstances of (McConnell's) filing for bankruptcy." Phillips said "Whrther he merely filed to reorganize, or is in the position of closing down this oprration .•. there's just no way of knowing at this time." "If the situation is such that he can't develop these projects, there is the ques· lion of whether he will hang on to the properties, try to sell , or what McConnell d()('sn't always talk about what his plans are." Indeed, the developer seems to shun public comment with a fervor bordering on the recluse. McConn(•ll and hi!oi Hpokc•sman consistently refus(•d to rrturn phone calls from the Montrose Voice and a local daily newspaper last week. McConnell's office number is not listed in the t(•)<·phone directory undc•r his namc•; some properties also do not havr rasily B('C'rssible din·ctory list ings. Although over 100 people gathered to wateh the Chicken Coop fall, McCon· nc•ll himself did not attend the rermony Rc•garding Westh<•imer Village, Phil· lips comm('nted: " I think it's safc• to say this ... tmds w make that project less likl'ly," Rut, hr cautionc•d, it is too early to tell what will happen to any of the proper· ties in question. "Until M<{'onnell tells people where he stands and what his plan!oi are. he holds the only key:· Phillips said. ,John Daniels, chief of security and puhlic rc•lntions for Liberty Bank, said it i!oi too soon to say McConnell will not be able to complete his projects. "I don't think we should count the mun out until he is out," Daniels said, adding thut no one knows what the out­come of the bankruptcy proceedings will h<•. "In thc• c•vent he can't develop the properti(>s I assume it would he up for anothrr developer to come and try to p1ek up where he left off." Danic•ls said he i!oi unaware of any other Lower Westheimer revitalization projects. He noted that most ongoing Montrose devrlopment is concentrated along Montrose Boulevard south •1f Westheimer. Jerry Blum of Acker. Blum and Ass<•· ciates, a real estate agency, also said ht• knew of no new development project scheduled in the area. "There's just nothing going on around here right now," Blum said. Lenders filed foreclosure against sev eral of McConnell's properties in Hous­ton and Galveston in October in an effort to collect delinquent loans, according to newspaper reports. The properties included Montrose Garden Apartments. the 1518 Washington con­dominiums, the French Village Apart ments and 12 units of the Glendower Court townhouse development. An involu ntary Chapter 11 filed against McConnel1 by three creditors blocked foreclosure proceedings that were schedulc>d for Nov. 4. In his answer Tuesday, Nov. 25, McConnell did not contest th(• filing against himself and four of his companies, and also filed for protection under Chapter 11 for Growth Properties, a real estate investment firm Linder Chapter 11 of the federal bank· ruptcy code, a company or individual is protec·tt'Cl from creditors in order to work out a rrorganiztion plan to repay debts. It usually takes bout 60 days from the date of filing until the first hearing in bankruptC'y court, a clerk in the federal court's bankruptcy office said. The date for MC'C'onnell's preliminary hearing probably would not be set for al least two weeks, the clerk said.

The alliance pushed hard for the center's establishment last year, and members did much of the legwork m obtaining supplies and funding for the outlet. Schmidt still manages a spe­c1a. fund which pays the center's utility bills and other operating expem;es. exduding tf"lephone service and salar· ies. The Neartown Center is one of six police community centers operating out of the Houston Police Department's cen­tral patrC1l division. H.P.D. Sgt. Don Williams, who su(>('nrises the centers, has his office base at the lower Westhci­mer address and calls this c-enter 'a full­hme job." enlike a substation, the center has no cells or holding facilities_ Its personnel do not make arrests. perform investiga tive functions or folJow up reports. So what docs the Ct>nter do? Williams describes its main function as commun· ity st>rvire. Police community cent~rs improve communicationi; between citi­zens and HPD, Williams i-oaid. Four officers involved in community outreach make presentations to civic organizatiom;, businesses and other neighborhood groups, Williams said. They speak on a variety of topics incl ud · ing crime prevention and security. and wi11 even tailor-make a program to suit a particular group's needs, he said "lt isn't just publie relations," Willi· ams cont<•nded. "We offer helpful infor­mation." Another and more visihle function of th<' center is to accept accident and crime• reports. Ac-cording to Williaml-i, four dt·sk officns processed 1516 reports h<·tween .Jan. I and Oct. 31. 'The- way I sec it, that's that many calls that didn't have to go through our dispatcher.·· Williams said. Paperwork now handled at the center frees patrol officer8 to handle more emergency situations, h£' said. Center pc·r:-;onnel have handled some minor emergencies, Williams said. Occasionally, people have had to bo det,ained there until a street unit could come to make the arrest. he explained But the primary function is commun ity contact, and hoth Williams and Schmidt sa\· the center has accomp~ lishod its gi;als. "The most important thing they've contrihuh>d is just being here," ~khmidt said. "At )past, they have lent an air of confidpnn• and a feeling of sec·urity to people in Montrosl' by giving the com· munity a local polic-e hast:'." Williams said tht· visual pre!"icnce of police in the- area has worked to detf>r t·ertain types of crime. He cited prostitu· tion and street druJ? dealing as exam· pies. Police statistics romparing October 198.'; to October 1986 reflect the follow · ing changes in crime patterns in two beats along the Westheimer corridor: reductions in auto theft (118-84), bur· glary (80·48>. and rape(~· I); increases in robbery (:15·109) and aggravated assault (~4-481. Overall crime com plaints showed a dE"C'rease in the beat east of Montrose Blvd and an increase in the beat wC'st of Montrose. To what extent a change in district boundaries this year figured in the statistics is not known ThP Wrstheimt·r <"enter is the only one of its kind that is almost completely community fundP<I. \Villiams said. The huilding housing it is owned by Liberty Bank, whiC'h leases to the center for SI a year · Hank officmls had the building almost completely rebuilt befon• the police moved in , Williams said. The centE'r's watE>r and elC"Clric bills are paid through donations from Mont· rose businesses. individuals and civic groups to th<' operational fund managed bv Neartown Business Alliance. This y~ar. both the Westheimer Colony Asso· ciation nnd tho Adopt·a·Block Commit· tPe donated a portion of their Westheimer Art Festival proC'eeds to the cpnt£'r fund. \Villiams said, The "dunk·a·cop" booth manned by cc•nter p(•n1onnel at the fc·stival not only raised monf'v for the fund, it helped improve tht; community's imag<' of police. Williums said. Improving rap· port llt'twh·n th<' pc·ople ond HPO is the the most important roleofthecommun· itv center, ht• said ·ft works both way:-;. according to Wil· liums. Being in Montrose. bc·ing involvt.-d in community functions. has turnt·d some officc·rs' attitudes around as well as helping citizens see things from the police point of view, he said. "That alonE.>, if nothing else. makes this c£•nter a success in my opinion," Williams concluded. Neartown Business Alliance will ho.st an anniversary party for the police com· munity center on De<'. 18 in the center's parking lot.

Many agree, however, that the area's image could use a boost. Jill Hefner, who coordinates a neigh­borhood planning project for the Near­town Association, said she supports .,special districting" to separate "poten tial nuisances in land uses." r\ear­tow n 's comprehensive planning c m~-·tee has been conducting an extensive land ust• survey to identify problems nnd dc-velop a workable plan, she sa1d. One ._ f the goals 1 f ·eartown's plan· ning proJec': 1s to mtlke n·commenda­tions to the city for optimal development tn •he district. induding the focus of residential and commt•rcial locations, Hefner said. During a discussion of property tax and land use Tuesday, Nov. 2fl, Near town mE'mbt•rs expressed concern that Montrose homt·s and businesses were being ·'ic<'ographically lumpl'd togt>thcr" for taxation purposes, Hefner said. "Evidc·ntly, th(' state legislatinn that mandates the taxmg authority ... maintams property must be valued at its highest and tx·st usP.' ·•she said In a m1xt-d use environment like Montrost'. this is interprt•ted as commercial. The· traditional way cities havp handlffi this situation is hy zoning, Hefner claims .. I'm not talking about the very res trict1ve zoning • . • districting ha!-i become more specialized now. Wr're dealing with diversity." she said. "We're concerned with preserving those characteristics of the community that re!-iident.'i want the point of a plan ir-; to try to encourage the best use." If no one prepares a plan. Hefner r-;aid , "The city could impact Montror-;e in a major fashion we're strategically placed to become a thoroughfare." Houston City Council approved a resolution in September authorizing the Department of Planning and Develop· ment to prepare a recommended policy for initiating a comprehensive plan­ning program for the city. The policy manual. approved in November, estab· lishes procedure!-i. formaL'i, and organi­zational structure to initiate a formal planning program for Houston and its extra-territ~rial jurisdiction Roh Bagot, owner of The Tire Place and a member of the Greater Montrose Businl·ss Guild, said he is forupgradini,! the nt•ighhorhood. hut differs on the appron<'h •·Tue homeowners are interested in having a uniformity of blocks.

Warren Duncanson, who chairs the business guild's development commit­tee. said Montro.sC' development does nl·ed some regulation . Burned out or abandoned buildings and sexually oriented businesses are among the more serious problems, he said. Duncanson recommended demolition of burned buildings, class action suits against negligent property owners, and an ordinance to restrict "uncontrolled" sc•xunllv ori<'ntecl businC'!-ises as ways of improving a "nt•gative image." Duncant·!-ion said the mainstream broadcast ml•dia givc•s the public a neg­ative view of gays and Montrose. The community .should reart with a "Mont­rose Proud" promotion to show the posi­tive aspects, he Haid.

The last time the two met, Pryor had just h<>en released from a hospital, where he was treah>d for severe burns suffered in a <·ocaine frl·t•basing incident. But five years ago, the shaken come· dian t·ovt•red his tracks. He told Walters that it had been an accident aJJ right, but not involving coC'aine. He and a frit·nds wt·re drinking a potent Jamai­can rum called "Overproof' when some aeeidentally spilled. Pryor lighted a cigar(•Ut• and tht• whole mess caught fire, burning him badly. "I lnh•r discovered he had lied to me about that night," Walters says in the show Thrn she turn!-> to Pryor. You didn't trll mr the truth," she snvs ;,That"s tru£>," says Pryor "Yeah. Whv not?" asks Walters. A better Question would be: why should a man with a serious cocaine problem talk turkey on Jive television before millions of viewert; when he had not even admitted hi~ addiction him­self' This time around, Pryor speJls out his n·asons and thf'n embellii-;hes the story, clniming that the "accident" wa~ ac·tu­ully a ~;uicide attempt. Rut coC'ainf' is onlv th£> sideshow. The n·al zing c·onws with tht• AIDS question Humors abound that Pryor has aC'quin•d immune defidt•ncy syndrome HP continues to clt•ny rumor~. but the stigma is hurting his career. Ro now he's ready to talk. "Do you hnve AlDS?" she asks. "No .•. ," he replies. " lfyou'd had AIDS (pause) would yo-u have told me?" What do you think Pr~·or replil•d'' Latt•r. Prvor di~russt•s his latt•st mar­ring(>, He si\ys he used to hit women but does not anymore, and he sayR that he tried to talk his latl'st wife into having an abortion before thl·y were married.

"' :,Whv'?'; asks Prvor "I d;in't know_ Recause I guess. I'm not uM.•d to that much h41rn•sty." Truth and honesty srtmed t he heavv on \\'alt<'rs' mind during this spe­c- ial. .In her session v.ith Betty White, star of !\"HC's hit •·Golden Girls, she digs for the truth again. After discussing \\"hitt·\; marriagr- to game show host Allen Ludden, who died of t·anc<"r, Walter.- turns to the subject f sex. h\'ou were on 'The Tonight Show' one nig-ht with Joan Ri,·ers and made a star­tling confession," Walters sayR ·r didn't makt• a startling confrs· sion," White n·plies.
