Transcript FRIDAY. DECEMBER 14. 1990 / MONTROSE VOICE 3 'Town Meeting' plan may be scrapped; recent meeting called off By SHERI COHEN DARBONNE Montrose Voice Editor In the wake of apparently dwindling interest in a "Town Meeting II" community planning conference, members of a steering com mittee set up to discuss the meet ing are now saying it may not b. possible. Ray Hill, who said he had been handed the responsibility of organizing planning meetings for TM II, called a meeting for 6:00 p.m. Monday, Dec, 3, at the Montroae Branch Library. Hill said he notified each of the steer- e members by mail. N. Y. group calls for early release of AIDS prisoners NEW YORK (AP)—Releasing seriously ill prisoners with AIDS is not only compassionate, but it makes economic sense as well, a prisoners-nghts group said "When a prisoner with AIDS is under custody, the state must which can be substantial," said a report by the Correctional Association of New Vork, released Monday. Dec. 10. "However, once a prisoner is released to parole supervision, he or she is eligible for federal Medicaid, relieving the state of 50 percent of the total medical expense." The report found that most prison systems have neither the staff nor facilities to care for dying AIDS prisoners. It added the prisoners can be better cared for in a hospital, hospice, family residence or private nursing Granting compassionate early release would also help families of prisonersi with AIDS, who the report said Were "struggling to keep their families together and at the same time trying to provide emotional support to the prisoner." The group estimates it costs $40,000 per year to treat a prisoner infected with the HIV security costs to treat AIDS prisoners at outside hospital facilities. Jack Valinski, one of fourpeople who showed up for the planned meeting, said it was called off after he and the other attendants waited 45 minutes for more to arrive. Hill, who arrived late after the meeting had already disbanded, said the others who attended were Brad Veloz, Carolyn Mobley, and Clara Bradley. After the canceled meeting, Hill said he wasn't sure if anyone remained on the steering committee who was devoted enough to the TM concept to make planning the meeting feasible. The idea, he said, no longer has a real leaden Valinski agreed, noting that many people who initially pushed for the meeting were now heavy involved in other activities. "I don't know of anyone who's really involved with this (Town Meeting) right now, but that doesn't mean there isn't," Valinski Deborah Bell, who facilitated two planning meetings and who initially only committed to helping start the planning, appointed Hill to take her place in arranging the meetings due to other commit- '"Most (committee members I got involved for a specific reason. They were very viable reasons, but no one (now) seems to be sufficiently committed to the Town Meeting idea itself," Hill said. In a letter to thecommittee members. Hill asked for input on the original objectives of the conference and the appropriateness of pursuing the plan. "Some of the objectives mentioned for a second TM have been" to expand our bases of support; formalize coalition building with other minority groups and women; identify a consensus on major issues; recruit new leadership; broaden support for existing efforts; identify other areas where efforts should be made; build a better sense of community; create more visibility for the community ganizations which r. and encourage more people out of community. their closets," Hill wrote. He noted, however, that "'we are living in a substantially different world than we envisioned in 1978. The ERA was an enthusiastically anticipated reality after the (International Women's Year) conference in 1977; AIDS was a term not yet coined; a woman's right to choice., was well covered by Roe v. Wade and not seriously challenged; there were no proposed ordinances to protect the rights of lesbian and gay city employees, nor any referendums to overturn them; our community was growing and the future looked bright and hopeful, and the role played by women in our local movement was beginning to expand and de The original Town Meeting, held June 25, 1978 in the AstroArena, drew about 4000 gay and lesbian participants and is credited with originating many or DAVID FUNERAL DIRECTORS 1814 Columbia Street Anthony Clarke Don Dowden Mike McKee HAIRCUTS ETC.
