Transcript APRIL 10, 1987 / MONTROSE VOICE 25 Court Upholds Enforcement of City's 'S.O.B.' Ordinance HOUSTON (UPI)—An appeals court has thrown out two court orders that allowed two topless bars to continue operating in violation ofthe city's sexually oriented business ("S.O.B.") ordinance. The 14th Court of Appeals ruled April 2 that state District Judge Frank O. White did not have the authority to grant temporary injuctions in December that prohibitied the city from enforcing the ordinance. The clubs do "not have a constitutionally protected vested right to operate a sexually oriented business," the court stated. City Attorney Jerry Smith said the ruling was significant for the city's enforcement of the sexually oriented business ordinance. He said a ruling against the city could have stymied enforcement efforts in other cases. The clubs have continued to stay open without the required city permits or extentions. City Council adopted the ordinance in March 1986, requiring owners and operators of sexually oriented businesses to obtain permits from the city. To obtain a permit, the business must meet certain requirements regulating location, signs and exterior painting.

Richards UPI Political Writer WASHINGTON—Conservative Rep. Jack Kemp, R-N.Y., has the best record among likely Republican presidential candidates for giving women high- paying staff jobs, a study showed Thursday. The Republican task force of the National Women's Political Caucus surveyed nine potential candidates on issues important to women. One of the nine, evangelist Pat Robertson refused to divulge any information about the employment of women in his religious organizations. The report noted that Robertson was a violent opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment and abortion, and said extension of the Civil Rights Act was "one of the most frightening pieces of legislation that has been brought up." Among the others, the report noted that Kemp had 13 women and three men on his personal staff and all four top earners were women including his executive assistant who earns $63,232. Kemp is an active opponent of abortion and the ERA. As for Howard Baker, while he was in the Senate, the majority of his staff were women, although they did not hold the highest paying jobs. The median male salary was $34,500, the median female salary $22,490. The report noted Baker supports women in politics, because his grandmother was the first woman sheriff in Tennessee, his stepmother served in the House and his daughter ran for the House. The report said five of seven of Labor Secretary William Brock's immediate pesonal staff are women, the highest ranking woman holding the No. 2 slot. The male median salary on Brock's staff is $50,171, compared with $35,672 for women. Women also hold a number of top positions in the Labor Department including associate undersecretary. Vice President George Bush has three women on his immediate personal staff of 13, including the one in the third highest position. The male median salary is $68,920 comared with $53,758 for women. Senate Republican leader Robert Dole's staff includes 19 women and 11 men. The salary for females is $29,251 and for males, $45,672. When Dole was majority leader, his chief of staff was a woman. While he was governor of Delaware, Pierre duPont had a woman as secretary ofthe senate, chief clerk of the state house and state treasurer. However, the treasurer was paid only $25,700, while her male colleagues averaged $42,000. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, R-Kan., has nine men and 30 women on her personal staff. The median male salary is $37,280, compared with $25,000 for women. Five women are included in the top 10 salaried positions . As for Jeane Kirkpatrick, ofthe three support persons currently working for the former UN ambassador, one is a male who is her executive assistant.

BEST PRICES! 523-LAWN From Chris Kihnel, co-chairman, PWA Coalition—Houston In reference to Rep. Brad Wright's (R-Houston) comments Monday. March 23, regarding PWA's as having to take responsibility for contracting AIDS because of our illegal activities, the PWA Coalition-Houston regrets his short-sighted far right, bureaucratic hypocrisy regarding our so-called responsibility and the state's responsibility ending after fully educating people. We commend Glen Maxey our lesbian-gay rights lobbyist for calling Wright "shortsighted." After all, AIDS has attacked not only the gay community but IV drug users, people that have acquired AIDS through blood transfusions, women with bi-sexual husbands or lovers, and the children. What about the children? We commend Texas Atty. Gen. Jim Mattox ruling on our rights to file job discrimination complaints if our employers fire us because of AIDS. But at the same time we as PWA's prefer not to be called "victims" but as People with AIDS. I promise that we, the PWA Coalition of Houston, has only begun to voice our rights and opinions. We will fight for the rights of all PWA's and will become politically active with the help of our friends in the media. ___ Write the Voice Items in the "Letters" column are opinions of readers.
