Transcript 6 MONTROSE VOICE/JANUARY 10, 1986 Letters HouTex Tennis Club Responds From Jim Kitch Your article on the "Tennis Split" was inaccurate in several respects: The HouTex Tennis Club name is "owned" by its membership. Rich Corder does not "own" it. We have DBA papers to prove it. Do you Rich Corder? The membership decided at the November membership meeting to vote on the proposed constitution and by-laws at the Christmas party. Mr. Corder was never told that the changes would not be voted on at the Christmas party. His statement to the contrary is not true. Rich Corder was a trusted newsletter issuer who had to obtain approval by its officers for any newsletter information. The newsletter that he recently sent to its membership to announce his dictatorial "takeover" was unauthorized and broke his trust of the officers and membership. Mr. Corder was trusted by the membership to obtain the name "Houston Tennis Club." He has taken it upon himself to think that this "ownership" allows him to personally be able to disregard the wishes and mandates of the majority of the club's membership and to take over the club. He cannot "own" the club's membership as he feels he "owns" the name. Mr. Corder was once the club's president. He was asked by the mandate of the membership not to run in 1985. He recently ran for several offices and was not elected—again by majority vote. He fails to realize that our club is a democracy and is run by the wishes of the majority. We will not allow an individual to dictator- ially strip its membership of its rights. Hope that you enjoy "your" club, Mr. Corder. I for one. want nothing to do with "your" club. {Editor's Note: It is always unfortunate when differences of opinion or interpretation arise in our community organizations, for it hurts us all. As in all disputes, there are two sides to every story. However, there is a difference between the two sides to a story and so-called "inaccuracies" reported in this newspaper. Only one of the aforementioned issues was even addressed in the MONTROSE VOICE article. That was the issue of the "dba" authority of the clubs. The other issues mentioned may or may not be valid concerns of the parties involved, but they reflect no inaccuracies in the reporting of the story.) Denying Services to True Americans From Loran E. Doss Again the United States government is taking away from the American Indian (Montrose Voice. Jan. 3). With millions of dollars being sent to foreign countries to feed their starving people, we still ignore the plight of the American Indian. Since some American Indians are U.S. taxpayers, it would seem that they could at least get health care service when it is needed. How strange it is that the government would deny services to the only true Americans and then give millions to countries that lean toward Communism.

Jims's Gym Reopens Following Fire By Pete Diamond Montrose Voice Staff Reporter Following an electrical fire which caused minor damage to Jim's Gym on Dec. 13, the Montrose health club recently reopened its doors to members. While damage resulting from the fire was being repaired, other improvements were made, including the addition of some new equipment and a repainting of the club. Also, during the nearly three weeks Jim's Gym was closed, plans were made for the club to be sold to Montrose real estate developer Mark Schmidt. Schmidt said the six-year-old club, which was to have moved to a new location several months ago, will remain at its present location of 607 Westheimer until terms of the purchase agreement are finalized and the new location is ready for occupancy. While he was uncertain as to when the health club would move to its new location at 2918 W. Dallas, Schmidt did say it will be renamed the Parkway Athletic Club. He added that the new, larger club would continue to offer the same facilities and classes as those offered at Jim's Gym. 11 Vie for GPC Offices, Board Seats As of the Dec. 18 meeting, a total of 11 candidates have announced intentions of seeking either offices or board of trustees seats with the Houston Gay Political Caucus. A final call for candidates will be held during the election meeting, to be held Wednesday, Jan. 15, prior to balloting. Due to the expected high turnout for the election, the meeting site has been changed to the Holiday Inn Central, 4640 Main Street. Seeking the presidency are incumbent Sue Lovell, former board member Annise Parker, and long-time activist Ray Hill. David Fowler and Ernest Hall are vying for the vice president's position. There is no candidate for secretary, and Tony Bell is running unopposed forreelec- tion as treasurer. All five candidates for open board of trustees positions are currently running unopposed. They are Sam Cannon, position 1; Tom Tate, position 3; Len Reber, position 4; Bob Meyer, position 6, and Joe Thornton, position 7. Those wishing to vote or run for GPC offices must be dues paying members as of 30 days prior to the election. Credentialing for qualified voters will begin at 7:00 p.m. and close at 8:30 p.m. The final call for candidates will be held before the election committee report which preceeds the candidates' speeches and the election itself.
