Transcript Montrose Voice Phone Fun — Amanda — Horoscopes — Soap — Personals jatt. 5,1990 Changes before our very eyes By AMANDA B. RECONDWITH The Montroae Voice Dear Fans, we were sailing along in the Rolls, filing our nails and wondering what it was we had just eaten at A Movable Feast (we knew it just HAD to he good for us), when suddenly we screamed for Sebastian to stop the car. There before us stood an enormous vacant area, totally bulldozed and leveled, the towers of downtown looming in the distance. Why, just the day before, there had been houses and trees there, and now it was turned into a massive field resembling the Somme after the worst artillery onslaught! We read the billboard that said in large beautiful letters that a new Odeon theater was to be constructed with perhaps 14 theaters inside, and our Moonglow White Crater Dust Lipstick nearly slid off our face as we bit our pouty, yet oh-so-sexy lips. Have you looked ai-oona Montrose lately, Dear Fans? The entire scene is changing dramatically. There are vacant lots everywhere. HoiXuk, are being plucked from the grour i or ground into the earth and scooped awa for new this and new that. But what exactly is replacing our careworn old Montrose? Theaters? Restaurants? Pretty little chic shopping centers? Yes. And also parking lots, and a horrid new phenomenon called the storage center. Dear Fans, there is something truly amiss with society when banks have been replaced with places to store old junk you can't live with. Why is storage necessary? Because we all have too much? Because we have so many things we just can't throw out for sentimental reasons? Or maybe because so many people are suddenly gone, leaving so much stuff behind to be sold at estate auctions. Needless to say, when we saw the wretched structure go up on West Gray and Waugh, our undies curled into an unmanageable bundle! And meanwhile, Richmond Avenue has been torn up, AGAIN! All those pretty little brick sidewalks are now buried under tons of dirt and debris, and traffic once again crawls along. The only good thing about it is there are occasionally very handsome policemen directing the mess. We have been known to fake a twisted ankle on the corner of Richmond and Greenbriar, Dear Fans! Meanwhile, our wonderful little neighborhood disappears before our eyes. The houses are torn away across from Butera's on Alabama to make way for more parking. The seedy little shopping center there is soon to be revamped by the same owners who made the Alabama Theater center such a success. Amanda shuddera at the influx of more Yuppies into the neighborhood They drive boxy cars, wear dull clothing (although well made) and try to reason like psychiatrists or brokers with their infant children who only want to be recognized as children. Very distracting! What about the pavement on all the other streets? Fairview is like driving through rural Brazil! Taking the overpass on Woodhead over the Southwest Freeway is like riding a covered wagon down the Grand Canyon! We have also noticed areas that should be designated Fire Zones, Dear Fans. Fairview near Dunlavy is nearly burned out We were cold on Christmas Eve, so we warmed our net stockings by one of several sudden blazes nearby It's valuable land, of course, but we wonder what is REALLY going on. And of course, lower Westheimer is like Nagasaki two weeks after. So, be aware of what's around you. Dear Fans, because it may not be there very much longer. Our dear homey, rather seedy and sometimes dingy Montrose is rapidly changing. We're not saying it's necessarily all bad, but without zoning, we wonder if there is any protection at all. Amanda would be most disturbed to find the house next door suddenly torn down, and a huge pseudo-Gothic-neoclassical-new-age pile sprouting up in its The 90's are upon us, and it's going to be based upon radical change for us all. For the Montrose Voice COPYRIGHT 199(1 Aries Typically, you'll want to charge right through and get this year going. What you really need to do is take care of a lot of details and solidify your position. The earth is your home, after all. Don't go flying off into the stratosphere! Taurus A question of possessions arises. What's yours and what's mine? The reality of sharing and caring gets bounced around a bit as two strong wills meet on a lover's battleground. Don't take your problems to bed! Gemini Now that you've make something beautiful, how about concentrating on making it last? Rather than letting your beautiful creation be fleeting thing, direct your energies toward something with strength and stability. Start at the bottom and work up. Cancer Someone who is older and has honest authority plays a key role in your life. That effect has great in fluence now, but will probably continue through the year ahead. Open up all of your senses to this. You can learn, learn, learn. Leo Duty and obligation may be perceived as an interference in your sprightly kind of life. But rather than viewing them in that light, how about appreciating the good they can do? A sense of order and fair play is the perfect way for you to start the new decade. laid dormant are coming to life. If s springtime in January for your power-packed sign. Sagittarius Virgo Less is more. Small is beautiful. You've always had a keen eye for the details that others miss. Now is the time to use that talent to appreciate your current position. Let some kind of limitation define a vague portion of your life. Libra You're not going to make it on a wing and a prayer. You're going to have ta make a crucial decision. You'll get a lot of help from your lover and friends, so don't worry about it. Just do it. Get on with your life and your loving. Imagine Rodin's sculpture of "The Thinker?' Imagine a light bulb over his head. Turn it on. Feel it happen. The excitement of a new idea is about to make you sit up and take notice. Power is there. Channel it. Capricorn Teach your children well; or your friends, lovers, or co-workers. It's time to share what you know in either your business or personal life. The important thing is to spread your knowledge around. You'll know when to do it. Aquarius Scorpio You are in the process of taking on a great deal of responsibility. While others would shy away from such a position, you welcome it gladly. Forces that have Playing second fiddle isn't so bad, as long as the first fiddle knows what he's doing. Thus, let someone else take the lead. Your voice will be heard as sweet harmony. Your beauty will be seen in bright complement. Pisces Still waters run deep. None run truer or deeper than Pisces now. In comparison, the shallowness of someone else may amaze or disturb you. Tell the truth and help that person to a better path. Meanwhile, in your own life a dream is coming true. __
