Transcript September 3,1982 / Montrose voice 3 Fire Official Says Gay Bar Fire Was Arson Arson has been blamed for the early morning fire last Friday, August 27, at the Hole House, 109 Tuam. The contents and structure were determined to be a "total loss," according to a report from the Houston Fire Department, but there were no injuries. Arson division spokesmen said that the incident is "under investigation" and robbery appears to be a motive. The fire department received a call from a citizen reporting the fire at 5:41 a.m. and the fire was brought under control at 6:15, the report added. The club was owned by Joe Anthony, who also owns Happy Trails, another gay bar. Anthony said he thought he could rebuild and be open in a,few months. Many of Anthony's personal .belongings were stored in the building and were lost. Also destroyed was the organ used by entertainer Keoki Kona, who played nightly at the "Top ofthe Hole," the club's upstairs entertainment bar. Public Defender Quits Over Anti-Gay Remarks International Gay News Agency An assistant public defender for Alameda County, Calif, (encompassing Oakland and San Jose), resigned August 18 after he was sharply criticized for making derogatory remarks about San Francisco's gay community. George Benetatos, 37, was quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle's Question Man column about what he was "mad as hell about." He replied: "The homosexual problem distorts the character of the city. Some are probably nice creative people, but San Francisco is imbalanced. It's changing from a family town to some- Fire officials say argon was the cause of a blaze that destroyed last week the Hole, a gay bar on Tuam thing bizarre." His statement infuriated many in the gay community and also angered Public Defender James R. Jenner and many staff attorneys. It appeared that public defender Benetatos might not defend any gays who might come within his jurisdiction. Smoking Linked to Loss of Hearing, Sexual Drive Pacific News Service More bad news for smokers: A pair of new studies have linked cigarettes to loss of hearing and sexual drive. In Egypt, cancer researchers say they found some degree of hearing loss in 70 per cent of the smokers they tested, compared to just 17 per cent in non-smokers. And while they're not sure why smoking might affect hearing, the speculation is that nicotine may reduce the blood supply to the inner ear. Meanwhile, a psychologist at Florida State University says smoking may be harmful to your sex life. Dr. Richard Hagen says males who smoke high- nicotine cigarettes show decreased sexual response. Treasure Hunt: As Good as the Real Thing A millionaire Texas oilman who financed an unsuccessful search for the Titanic last year is building a solid gold replica of the ill-fated ship for other treasure hunters to track down, reports the Washington Post. Jack Grimm says the $25,000 model will be hidden next month somewhere in the United States or Canada. Clues to the "Titanic" treasure will have to be deciphered from a forthcoming book called Beyond Reach: The Search for the Titanic. 0«iMW«-e^«*tdfe> Montrose Mouth Fred Paez Community Center sign brightly reflects—and attracts The new sign outside the Fred Paez Community Center, corner Taft and Avondale, glitters boldly in the light—so boldly, says George Barnhart, that within an hour after it was up, dozens of police cars started driving by and glaring. By the next day, George estimated that "every police car from every precinct must have been by looking at this sign." "Even the Park Police started coming by," said George. Why, you ask? Well it was Fred Paez —gay activist—who was killed from the gun of a drinking off-duty Houston police officer in 1980. Only witness: Another off-duty drinking police officer. Well, the sign—and the community center—shows that we're proud of Fred and will continue to remember him. Says Ray Hill, "We appreciate the extra police presence in the neighborhood. There's a lot of 'queer bashers' out there preying on gay men and lesbians." —• — The new general manager at Mary's is Bill Pierceall, who's been a bartender there for two years. —•- " Those inserts last week in the Voice for the Advocate's sweepstakes were part of a campaign where the national gay magazine selected leading local gay publications. "This is surely the most ambitious sweepstakes ever mounted in the gay community," said the publication's marketing director, John Knoebel. If you missed your's, we've got the forms here at the Voice's office. —•— The Fred Paez Community Service Center could use a few items, if anyone has them laying around: folding chairs, tables, refrigerator, stove and white paint, suitable for outside trim. George Barnhart says call him or Ray Hill at 523-6969 or 521-0196 to donate. —• — Some birthdays of famous and infamous people this weekend and the following week: Jesse James and Bob Newhart Sunday; Grandmas Moses, Peter Lawford and Buddy Hotly Tuesday; Richard the Lionhearted, Sid Ceasar and Peter Sellers Wednesday; and Colonel Sanders and Leo Tolstoy next Thursday. New advertising sales rep here at the VOICE is Gene Nygaard. —• — First issue of Dallas Gay News comes out next week—and that city is excited about it. So are we.
