Transcript 2 MONTROSE VOICE/JANUARY 20, 1987 Good News About Good Times Around Town by Elroy Forbes Montrose Voice Social Director □ Good News Department Ain't it grand to have good news? First we finally have Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday as a federal holiday. We have to recognize that 1987 is showing a lot of promise. 1. U.S. government spokesmen have announced that by 1990 an AIDS vaccine could be available. Testing on humans has begun. A current $343.5 million research project could speed up the work. But sad is the fact that this boost to AIDS would also mean a direct cut from such projects as cancer and heart disease. 2. Boom Town could return. With the ban lifted on selling oil field equipment and technology to Russia, one Texas firm expects to make $30 million immediately. What a deal! Now where is that man who was buying up abandoned equipment for 25? on the dollar? Can't wait to rush to the airport and see so many of our friends returning home. 3. Over 250 tickets are sold from the some 600 available to the very special performance of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart at the Alley Theater. For only $25, you get the play and a post performance reception with the cast. All proceeds benefit The AIDS Foundation Houston, Inc. You can order tickets by check (made payable to AFH) by writing: AFH Tickets, P.O. Box 27703, Suite 216, Houston, TX 77027. (Please mention the Montrose Voice.) This is how we spent a cold, wet Saturday at the 611 erty. He planned to build a high rise hospital facing a high rise hotel. The empty lot north of W. Gray would contain a high rise professional tower. None of these dreams were built. But West's vision of an internationally recognized medical center was built, years later near the Shamrock Hotel, the famed Texas Medical Center. The three W. Gary lots remained empty after West's death. For the past few months construction on the old hospital/hotel sites has been underway. Made possible by funds provided under Title 1 of the Housing and Community That side pocket is a must for gold medal winner Roger Pruett glad to be out and about more. Multi-talented Englishman Len Rhodes is musical director for Leader of the Pack, currently packing them in at Rockefeller's on Washington Ave. Len has a few recordings doing very well on the charts on the continent. John Owens must have struck gold with this The Magistellus Herb Shop. He is still canning his jams and jellies, filing all those late Christmas orders. Ask him about his gift basket. George Drogaris' Zorba the Greek on Tuam is still handling the hungry eater's rush. Seems George got this idea to increase his slow winter business with two for one dinner specials. □ Our Changing Landscape Steve Millhouse, after the famous "Silver Dollar" Jim West, must be credited as the next man to leave a significant mark on West Gray. West, who singlehandedly propelled River Oaks into the great status neighborhood in Houston, was concerned that Houston did not have a showcase of affluence to show the world. He guided his dream toward a heavy wooded section along Buffalo Bayou. West fought City Hall to have taxes protect the River Oaks section, formed a village and built the River Oaks Police Department. One of his big kicks was riding in patrol cars all night long. West visioned the gateway to River Oaks would be near Waugh Drive rather than the gates presently on Shepherd. He built a concrete street, Metropolitan at 1400 W. Gray, which divided his pro- street. Gray Cafe stands empty, but a new restaurant should be open by February. □ Out and About Those wonderful daredevils, Bob and Bland, took me out the "Dallas Freeway" for dinner. While we were out there we visited Cheers. The music was loud and the place was hopping. It was a bright, good looking spot off FM1960. From there we decided to come back in to The Galleon. It was great to see Randy, Carl, Robert and the boys. Spied were Bill, David, Roger, Slim and Lloyd Thomas, who recently lost his mother. d Names in the News International Flag Company's Bruce Herman is featured this month in the Houston Chamber of Commerce newsletter. Seems everyone is impressed with Bruce's flag business and his inexhaustive promotional campaign. Checkerboard Deli's David King announced that he is running for one of the nine board of directors positions for The Greater Montrose Business Guild. David and his partners hosted the guild's Christmas meeting last December and decided to become more active in the guild's many programs. Handsome C.P.A. John Curcio is doing fine. FYI John spent part of the holidays with some minor surgery. He reports the bod is doing just "fine" and perty. He planned to build a high rise hospital facing a high rise hotel. The empty lot north of W. Gray would contain a high rise professional tower. None of these dreams were built. At 1900 W. Gray at Dunlavy, a site has been chosen for a new postal facility for zip code 77019. The present Wood- head post office has to be the only English U.S. Post Office in Houston. You have to drive on the left side of Wood- head to deposit your letters. The present River Oaks P.O. is about half the size of the Fairview, 77006 station. Presently remodeling, the Entrepreneur Center at 600 W. Gray is an amazing development. Steve Millhouse combined four old four-plexes to form a communication and professional business service center. The fifth house, Blythe Spirits, is free standing. Computer links, libraries, conference rooms, this center has received local, national and international publicity. Across the Didn't I meet you on a summer cruise? Masseur Bill Carpenter of The Body Works is relocating out the Katy Freewy with new interests. Taft Automotive announces Craig Wilson brought his buns back to Taft Street About time, says Linda Reynolds, now holding down two jobs while Chuck is in the garage. Until Friday, see you around town.
