Transcript Ii Spokane Gay Newspaper Folds SPOKANE — Stonewall News Northwest, a monthly newspaper serving the Spokane area's gay and lesbian community, is closing due to lack of financial support. Publisher John Deen. who bought the newspaper in 1995, said he no longer has the money or time to keep it afloat. "It's been devastating." the 64-year- old said. "Stonewall did what it could to give pride to the gay community." With help from a few volunteers, Deen wrote all the stories and took all the photos. He also sold advertising, did the office work and distributed the 3.000 copies in Spokane .and nearby Coeur d'Alene. Idaho, each month. During most months, costs to publish the newspaper came out of Deen's pocket. News of Stonewall's financial problems first appeared in its April issue. In response, local businesses and readers tried to raise money to keep it going. "Stonewall served as lhe glue" uniting ihe area's gays and lesbians, said Mar.in Reguindin, president of the Inland Norlhwesl Business Alliance, an organization of aboul 100 gay and gay-friendly businesses. "Once a month, Ihey were able to find oul what was lining on." Sodomy Law Repealed in Rhode Island PROVIDENCE.

NYC Council Hears Conflicting Views on Partnership Laws NEW YORK — A City Council committee heard conflicting views on legislation aimed at ensuring domestic partners receive the same treatment as married couples at a hearing last Wednesday.

Supporters Say Hormel Needs One More Vote to End Impasse WASHINGTON — Supporters of the stalled nominal ion of openly gay philanthropist James Hormel to become ambassador to Luxembourg said last Thursday they have drawn to within one vote of being able to break a conservative stranglehold. Hormel now has the support of 59 senators, picking up an additional Republican vote, supporters said. A small band of conservatives, complaining about what they see as Hormel's gay rights activism, have been able to prevent a vote. Hormel To break such a hold requires the votes of 60 senators. Even with 60 votes, il will require the support of Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) to schedule a vote. "We continue lo make lhe argument that he would be a fine ambassador," said White House spokesman Mike McCurry said. "He's got a record and qualifications that suggest he would be a superior representative of our government overseas." -From staff and wire reports
