Transcript JANUARY 20, 1987 / MONTROSE VOICE 3 Fortunes 'Demo Awareness' Committee Won't Respond to Mayor By Sheri Cohen Darbonne Montrose Voice Members of the Committee for Democratic Awareness decided at a closed- door meeting Thursday, Jan. 15, not to hold a press conference or otherwise respond to Mayor Kathy Whitmire's comments last Wednesday concerning negotiations with the Houston host committee for the Democratic National Convention. Whitmire announced that she would not allow the host committee to make any agreement whatsoever with the group, which had attempted to call attention to a history of anti-gay bias by the Houston Chamber of Commerce and city officials. Sue Lovell, a member of the group originally spearheaded by attorney Tom Coleman and Gene Harrington, said the major decision of the meeting was to refer documentation ofthe effort to the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Democratic Clubs and the National Conference of Openly Gay Elected Officials. Both national organizations had been monitoring the committee's efforts, and passed resolutions in support of its goals and had expressed a desire to be kept posted of future developments. Packets being sent to the national organizations will include all of the awareness group's correspondence and newspaper articles detailing the response from city officials and the host committee. The group's direct attempts to iron out a specific agreement with the hosts have, at least for now, been dropped, Lovell said. "We're just going to sit and wait and hope that Houston gets the convention," Lovell said. <3Jtt 3Hettwrtam JOHN S. CROCKER July 18, 1955-January 11, 1987 John died at the Institute for Immunological Disorders in Houston. He attended the University of Houston and was one of the founders of Gay Resources Services there. He was also active in various student and political affairs. He is survived by his mother, Vern; a sister. Marsha; and two brothers, Jay and Steven. Services were held at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Houston on Jan. 15. Those who knew, loved and gave him their support will miss him. Harrington, who from the beginning has insisted that the committee was supportive of bringing the convention to Houston, said his personal negotiations to assure "meaningful" gay participation in the convention will continue. Harrington said he also planned to continue efforts to establish a line of positive communication between gays and the Houston business community. One committee member expressed frustration that the group's goals, already watered down from a list of specific "demands" to three very general and moderate objectives, did not get more support from Houston's larger gay organizations. "I'm personally very disappointed that petty disagreements kept the gay community from getting together on this," Lou Vanech remarked. "We haven't had the support, so there's nothing else we can do, but be satisfied with the people the mayor says represent us."

Jan. 20. through Friday morning. Jan. 23. 1987: ARIES—Who am I? What is my purpose? What's it all about? It's a confusing time for you unless your home life is settled. Be grateful for all the support you can get, and stay open to possibilities. Remember that answers are often found in the questions you ask. TAURUS—You know how to give it, and you know how to take it. Good thing, too. There's plenty of give-and-take going on. Give that special person what he wants and take his very special response. Stay close. GEMINI—Someone younger than you needs the help you can give. Don't take advantage of this situation for your own selfish needs. Don't play the martyr, either, giving and giving until you're given out. Be an example and a guide. CANCER—Seeds that you've planted and nourished have grown. The rewards of your labor are tasty and bountiful. Nothing forbidden about this fruit, so sit back and relish it. Mmmmm! LEO—You're asking questions and demanding answers. Coupled with your ability to understand what's going on, this could lead to a surprising position of power and influence. Watch where you're headed. Things are getting very interest- 'ng. VIRGO—Chaos and confusion at home can be cleared up this week, but it won't happen all by itself. Kind words and gentle touches go a long way in getting things moving. Turn the other cheek, or the others LIBRA—Something's a little devilish about your being so cool. Everyone's huf- fin' and puffin' in the heat, but summer breeze make you feel fine. Workin' like the devil all day, lovin' like the devil all night, SCORPIO—You're not getting older, my friend, just better. Lots of truth in that for you this week. No matter what your age, the whole question is on your mind. Remember where you came from, and what you've learned. SAGITTARIUS—If it weren't for the fact that you can charm the birds off the trees, you could have some trouble this week. Ah, deceptive charm, don't be afraid to use it. The right smile in the right place gets a super response. CAPRICORN—Floods of emotions and outpourings of words; you're so finely tuned to your feelings that you have to express them. A good time for talking things out. Say what you need to the right person, and watch the future take shape. AQUARIUS—Creative sparks fly! Whether it's a party you're planning or a house you're building, in any project you've got innovative ideas no one else has ever thought of. Friends are fascinated, lovers delighted. PISCES—Too much to do and too little time? Routines and familiar patterns getting you down? Do something strange and unpredictable. Be bizarre. It's allowed, you know • 1987 MONTROSE VOICE &8B.
