I found their homepage on lhe WWW and you may want to include it in the next issue of (he Houston Voice. It is: Info@walgreens.com. (lie URL for (heir homepage is hup://www.walgreens. com/home.html. If enough representatives of our community communicate, we may succeed. I seem to recall we had ihe same problem with Krogers and Randall's many years ago. Disgusted By GOP By JEANA LEA After watching the Republican National Convention I fell outraged and disgusted at the overall blatant and outright lies. Republicans tried to present themselves as lhe party that cares about raising the minimum wage. As I recall Bob Dole and Newi Gingrich led the fight to keep the wage exactly at $4.25 per hour. Kay Bailey Hutchinson showed the true colors of the Grand Old Party when she was given "honor"' of delivering the "Let's bash Clinton" speech. Wonder why she had to deliver such a speech? The anti- clunce people didn't want her at the party but they were forced to put up with her. so they gave her the job that was most displeasing! Kay Bailey rheloric promoting classism. racism, and disrespee( to the President of the United States is the very last thing voters, in particular women want (o put up with! Hutchinson mentioned "I( takes a family to raise a child not a village." This was not just an attack on First Lady Hillary Clinton but an attack on other cultures such as the Native Americans and African tribes who believe thai it is (he responsibility of the whole tribe or village to raise children. Even in Ihe Untied States the family is not the lone factor in raising a child. Our children are (aught values first from their families, also from teachers, police, ministers, peers, and collectively all these people make up a community. All of the speakers kept coming back to the same point (hat Americans are tired of paying taxes. And sure (hal is (rue to some degree, but what Americans are most tried of is elected officials using lax money unwisely! If the government would learn how to spend (he money we give (hem so thai people—all people are taken care of there would be no problem. Ever since (he twelve years of Reagan and "trickle down economics'' the rich get richer and the poor get poorer and there is less and less in the middle. Now Dole wants to bring back the Voodoo economics. I have listened to all (he belly aching from "'Lincoln's Party" for four years now. They said Clinton would never get any- ihing passed through congress and Republicans worked against him in every way they could. They made such a fuss over Whitewater thai it caused them io get caught up in ihe under (ow and drowned. The GOP has one last ditch effort to pull off a miracle— and it ain't Bob Dole! Grand Old Party, ihe eyes of Lincoln are looking down upon you with tears thai his party has been dismantled. Voice Is One Of The Best! FROM JONE DEVLIN I just wanted to thank you for making the Houston Voice one of the best publications in the Houston area for our community. Your policy of inclusion for all, as well as (he additions of Nancy Ford and Sarah DePalma as writers have made me something I never was before, a regular reader of The Voice. I feel thai tor too long, local publications have (ended to overlook the women's community. The appearance of a new. inclusive Voice however seems to have caused many of the other publications to suddenly "discover" us and our issues. The benefit of (his to our community as a whole is immeasurable. Thank you again for a greal publication. and I can hardly wait until the next issue. EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks so much for your compliments and support. Just when we think ours is a totally thankless job a letter like yours comes in and lets us know that our work is appreciated and it makes us feel really good .—db) Hats Off To TGRA ANGELA MORE, AVES EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR On behalf of the clients, staff, and Board of Directors of Amigos Volunteers in lulu- cation and Services Inc. (AVES). I would like in express our more sincere grati- tude to members of lhe Houston chapter of the Texas Gay Rodeo Association (TRGA> for (he suppon they have given us during the past few months. Xavier Luna, candidaie for Mr. TGRA 1997. raised nearly $5,0CK), which allowed us to hold our first ever Laiino Pride Gala. This event was held as part of Pride Week 1996 and was very successful as a fund-raiser as well. Shelby S(. John and Jamie Roberls. Miss TGRA 1997 Candida(es, in separate events, raised over $1,000 which was used to purchase school supplies for over 90 children impacted by HIV/AIDS. These three individuals, as well as several other members of TRGA and other local entertainers, have given so much of their time and dedication to help the HIV community. We are very grateful thai they have chosen us as one of the groups thai benefit from their generosity. This in turn allows us to continue our mission of promoting a healthy communiiy through education, disease prevention, advocacy and direct care to Latino/ I n iii.i'. and other historically under- served populations. Hats off to TGRA and good luck to Xavier. Shelby, and Jamie in their upcoming pageants.
