Transcript JANUARY 16, 1987/MONTROSE VOICE 3 Bar Owners Irked by City's Health Codes By Sheri Cohen Darbonne Montrose Voice Local bar owners may mount an aggressive campaign to alert Houston City Council members of "ridiculous" codes and regulations they say have been passed by an uninformed council at the recommendation ofthe Houston Health Department. Suggesting a possible "buddy" relationship between health department officials and certain plumbers and electricians, Alan Pierce told other members of the Houston Organization of Bar Owners at its monthly meeting Wednesday, Jan. 14, that restrictive new codes were being railroaded past a Man in Jail Still Suspected in Other Crimes While an FBI lab report has apparently cleared Darryl James Jackson of a 1985 murder in Bellaire, Houston police say the ex-convict and accused robber is still a strong suspect in a Houston homicide. Jackson was arrested Wednesday, Jan. 7, and charged two days later with two counts of robbery after two people identified him in a lineup, police said. In each case, the robbery victim was a gay man who met Jackson in a Montrose bar. The alleged robberies took place in the men's Southwest Houston homes. Because of similarities in the circumstances surrounding the crimes and Jackson's attitude, police announced at the time that Jackson was also a suspect in the murders of two men who met their killers in gay bars. The victims, Pete St. George and William Wayne Price, both were stabbed to death in their homes, and in both cases the attackers stole the victims' cars. But Bellaire Asst. Chief M.E. McGuire said Tuesday, Jan. 13, that an F.B.I, laboratory investigation showed no match between Jackson's hair and fingerprints and hair samples and prints taken from the scene of the St. George homicide in December 1985. "At this point, we're no longer considering him a suspect," McGuire said? "Our case is still open, unless we come across additional information." St. George was the former owner of The Brasserie, a Montrose restaurant. Meanwhile, Sgt. S.L. Morrison said Houston police have evidence connecting Jackson to the Dec. 7, 1986, murder of Price. Morrison said property belonging to Price was found on Jackson when he was arrested on the robbery charges. Police attempted to question Jackson about the case, but the suspect refused to talk, Morrison said. "He's been in the penitentiary twice before. You get to be a 'jailhouse lawyer' after awhile, he knows what not to say," Morrison commented. Jackson remains in Harris County- Jail, with bail set at $100,000. French Spermicide Kills AIDS Virus PARIS (UPI)—A French-made spermicide, used for several years to coat condoms, kills the AIDS virus without causing harmful side effects, a scientist at the Pasteur Institute says. Contraceptives containing bcnzalko- nium chloride are sold in Canada, Spain. Switzerland and Africa. council that did not understand the implications. At issue are new regulations regarding the type of sink that must he installed in the businesses, sealing-in all soft drink lines and the required size of water lines, which the bar owners contend is often inconsistent with needs of the individual establishment. "There is a tremendous amount of inconsistency in the codes (the Health Department) is adopting," Pierce, HOBO president, said. "I would like to see some organized, offensive efforts from our side." He recommended appearing before council to explain the more questionable or wasteful policies and the problems they present to business people. Jay Allen added that the health department is usually "unbending" in requiring businesses to adhere to the written rules, although it is at the discretion of the inspector to decide whether the codes have been met. Bar owners reopening after a fire, as well as those trying to open a new business, are required to meet all ofthe new regulations. Pierce said. In other business, the group decided to offer a $500 reward from the Marion Pantzer Reward Fund for information leading to the arrest of a man who stabbed and robbed a Brazos River Bottom bartender, provided enough information is made available to put together a flyer and a composite sketch of the attacker. The fund, established following the murder of Pantzer for the purpose of discouraging personal assault and arson in Montrose, currently has over $5,500 in its reserve. Pierce reported that the November Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission report indicated a "bounce back" in bar business compared to the October report which showed a severe business slump due to the raising ofthe drinking age to 21 in September. Jay Allen reported that a major fundraiser for the Bar Owners Association of Texas will be held Wednesday, Jan. 21, at The Galleon. Allen said the statewide lobbying organization desperately needs the money to pay a $6000 debt to the Internal Revenue Service.
