Transcript Valentine's Weekend and Our Hearts Belong to Montrose FEBRUARY 13, 1987 / MONTROSE VOICE 19 Around Town by Elroy Forbes Montrose Voice Social Director a Friday the 13th It's here, Friday the 13th! And we get another one in March. For those too superstitious to go out, Channel 13 is running "Friday the 13th" weekend movies just for you. We also have some birthday people. Larry Frazier of the Venture-N says it's fun to play Count Dracula without any teeth. Rock 'n Horse's Darlene Even Babs Monroe, Robby Roberts and many other legends performed and brought the total up to $1,316.80. Thank you Robin for all that you have given to our community. Those who wish to contribute may mail checks made out to Robin Gibson, in care of Dayle Everts Barber Styling, 940 Heights, Houston, TX 77008. □ AIDS Alley Gala Due to our change in printing schedules, here is the late report on the Alley Betsy Steve and Becky says, "each year my bust keeps getting bigger." Man about town Troy Maniard says nothing at all. Darlene informed me that Boobie Rock, like the Phoenix, will rise again. This time the Westheimer nightspot will be Club Rendezvous. At any rate, take care, it is Friday the 13th. □ Good News for Robin It was a long, but a great, show. Becky and Betsy pulled out all the stops to host Robin Gibson's benefit at The Ranch. There were half price specials, tons of people, and many costumes. Everyone was there: Ed, Marty, Francine, Chuck, Ditsy, Mike, Buddy, Gene, Leon, Timeless Taffeta's John and David, Walter Strickler, Steve Shimer, Buzz, John, Rene, and Ted. Artists David Sims, Maurice Davis and I donated paintings for the door prize along with Diamond M's festive hat, shirt, handmade belt and many other wonderful things. A delegation from Jolly Rogers, The Colts, TGRA, Happy Hour Daddys Revue and most everyone Robin has worked with were represented. "It was a wonderful benefit," Ron Sioux and Patsy Kline mentioned, "because Robin was not only able to be there, but performed." There were many great moments. The Ranch's Jimmy performed. The Whore House Girls did "Leader of the Pack," "Lollipop" and may other fun '50s tunes and brought down the house. Miss Lila did her own exotic strip that brought back many memories. But the vision of Robin in magnificent silver gray gown brought tears and many to their feet. Everyone worked well and long on this outstanding show. Benefit for AIDS Foundation Houston. Blow-ups of AIDS articles and graphs were displayed in the theater. A wonderful buffet and wine tasting was furnished by Jackson Hicks of Jackson & Co. Catering.

Dementia An Early Sign of AIDS United Press International The first and sometimes only sign that a person has AIDS is not an infection but a neurological problem, researchers report. AIDS dementia, a complex of neurological, motor and behavior problems, often appear in patients before any of the opportunistic infections that result from AIDS, said Dr. Bradford Navia. Furthermore, Navia wrote in the American Medical Association's Archives of Neurology, many AIDS patients with dementia never develop other infections despite having no immune system to fight them. Navia, of the Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center in New York, described 29 cases of patients at risk for AIDS who exhibited dementia either before or in the absence of other AIDS symptoms. Upon further examination, six were otherwise healthy and the fest exhibited a mild form of AIDS-related complex. "Over half of these patients," Navia said, "either survived for five to 16 months or died without exhibiting systematic manifestations of AIDS." Happy Valentine's Day 1901 Taft at Webster 524-8601
