Transcript 6 MONTROSE VOICE/JANUARY 16, 1987 Fortunes The Dance of Life Goes On for Leo By Mark Orion Your Horoscope from Ihe Voice For Friday evening. Jan. 16. through Tuesday morning. Jan. 20, 1987: ARIES—You'd better get with it. and stay with it. One who has the say-so will say so if you're found stacking off or playing around. I'm sorry, but at least you won't be able to say you weren't warned! TAURUS—The difference between domination and leadership often consists of expecting no more from yourself than what you expect from others. Using your horns is not the problem, if you urge instead of force. Just don't confuse your outer battles with your inner ones. GEMINI—O.K., let's not go overboard with the big butch bit. Last week you were feeling good about yourself, but don't let that build into this weekend's arrogance. Tone it down, if you think it is necessary And do think Money is the Problem Group Agrees to Community Center Concept By Sheri Cohen Darbonne Montrose Voice A mixed group attending a special meeting of Montrose Activity Center Monday night. Jan. 12, agreed in concept with establishing a community center in central Montrose, but showed some skepticism over whether funds were available to finance such a project. About 30 individuals and representa- tives of organizations including Gay Political Caucus, the Montrose Counseling Center, Womynspace, the Guardian Angels and AIDS Foundation Houston heard a history of MAC and the community center project before the floor was opened for questions. Moderators Joe Wilson and Dwayne Wells, both trustees on the temporary board of MAC, explained "MAC's vision" of the proposed center as a centralized location for organizational office space, meetings, social services and social activities. The center itself would be non-aligned, with noorganiza- tional, political or religious affiliations, and open to all in the community who wish to use it with no specific "target" group, they said. But a discussion of a prospective physical location raised concerns about raising enough funds to make a down payment on a suitable building. Wells admitted that start-up money currently available to MAC through its Gay Pride Week reserves was only enough to cover preparatory expenses, such as postage for early project communications. Jerry Blum of Acker-Blum Realty, whose aid MAC had enlisted to research the real estate aspect, reported that depressed market conditions would probably continue another six to eight weeks. Most mortgage companies, however, are looking only at higher priced buildings, he said. Blum recommended seeking an owner-financed property situation or assumption. Jerry Blum of Acker-Blum Realty, whose aid MAC had enlisted to reserch the real estate aspect, reported that depressed market conditions would probably continue another six to eight weeks. Most mortgage companies, however, are looking only at higher priced buildings, he said. Blum recommended seeking an owner-financed property situation or assumption. The asking price for a 20,000 square foot building is in the $400,000-500,000 range, Blum said. When asked where the estimated $150,000 down payment on such a building would come from, Wells told the audience, "From you." Wilson commented that how much space is needed for a center is still being discussed, and that there are other options to outright purchase of a building, including long-term leasing. Blum had noted earlier that many buildings are available for lease at this time, and that rents are at a low. MAC board member Ray Hill said resources were available, but that extra efforts to "massage wallets" of the "fat cats" may need to be made. "I am willing to use every effort I've used in the past (to obtain funding) for numerous other things, and God knows I've spent millions of dollars of this community's money over the years," Hill quipped. But Mark Stevens said he did not understand where MAC could find enough money. "GPC has been trying to retire a debt for years that is less than a tenth of what needs to be raised," Stevens said. GPC member Pat Gandy responded, however, that the caucus' debt is now being paid off, adding that silence and questions from the audience did not indicate a lack of enthusiasm for the community center. "I'm real excited about this, I know a lot of people are. But all of us are somewhat struck by the economic situation," Gandy said. Margo Shelton of Womynspace said the money is available if the community is interested enough. "You do have to push the community. But the funds are there if we just get over our skepticism," said Shelton, who claimed her organization started with an operating budget of "zip." Wells said the next step would be to approach the "major players" or key non-profit groups to determine their willingness to relocate to the center. He said one group has already indicated it would be willing to move its offices from a current rented space if the new center met its needs. Hill said space in the building could only be rented to non-profit groups because of tax implications. MAC is a 501-C3 non-profit, tax-deductible corporation whose charter the board plans to use for the new center. In other business, persons interested in serving on the MAC board were asked to fill out a form. MAC is seeking to restaff its 13-member board by March, when the terms of seven temporary board members expire. The next meeting was set for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23. location to be announced. CANCER—Moon children are known for a love of the domestic, but a homebody can't always stay at home. Itching to get out and around? Check out some new places and faces.

You can see the lighter, more humorous side of things The dance of life goes on. with old or new partners. VIRGO—Do whatever is necessary; you'll make the right decisions. Work has never seemed more important, and the whole area of work and career is up for examination.

Touching and feeling are what you're up for. Organize your own group and it won't be just for talking. SCORPIO-Life's simple pleasures are yours, especially those that combine work and fun.

You've got the talent for seeing both sides of the story, and the energy to seek both out. PISCES—Pay attention to the world of work and accomplishment. Fantasy may be alluring, but it's not the way to get where you want to be. You can realize an important goal if you stick with it ■■ ■
