Gay-rights group opposes promotion of former leader SAN ANTONIO — A former Fort Campbell commander nominated for a lieutenant general promotion faced opposition from gay-rights advocates meeting in San Antonio last week, the Associated Press reported. Members of the American Veterans for Equal Rights contend that Maj. Gen. Robert T. Clark bears some responsibility for a 1999 hate crime at Fort Campbell, Ky. The San Antonio native, now a Fort Sam Houston general, was the post commander at Fort Campbell when Pfc. Barry Winchell, 21, was beaten to death in his sleep by a drunken soldier on July 5,1999. Winchell's parents, who live in Kansas City Mo., spoke April 3 to about 40 members of American Veterans for Equal Rights. Wally Kutteles, Winchell's stepfather, and his wife, Patricia, said they feel an anti-gay environment at Fort Campbell caused their son's death. The couple aren't sure if their son was gay because he dated young women, while openly befriending gays. Clark said in an interview that he began teaching values about respecting fellow soldiers in February 1998, when he became commander of Fort Campbell. After the killing, the post instituted specific policies to discourage anti-gay remarks and actions, Clark said. "We were very proactive" in discouraging a hostile environment for gay soldiers, he said. Clark was cleared of any wrongdoing after an Army investigation. A private named Calvin Glover, of Sulphur, Okla., received a life sentence in the murder. Conroe librarian honored for defending banned books A woman who helped fight efforts to ban two young adult sex education books from Montgomery County library shelves has been awarded this year's PEN/Newman's Own First Amendment Award, the Associated Press reported. Jerilynn Williams, director of the Montgomery County Library, will receive a $25,000 prize at PEN's annual gala on April 22 in New York City. Last August, commissioners in Montgomery County, located north or Houston, agreed to temporarily remove two books. "It's Perfectly Normal" and "It's so Amazing." both by Robie H, Harris, after complaints, particularly from the conservative Republican Leadership Council. The group objected to what it described as the books' pro-homosexual stance and explicit illustrations. Williams worked to convince a review committee looking into the books to put them back on library shelves. "Librarians like Jerilynn Williams are on the front lines of censorship battles every day, their commitment to intellectual freedom often the only thing standing between us and the book-burners," said Pat Schroeder, president and CEO of the Association of American Publishers and one of this year's judges for the PEN/Newman's Own Award. Gay tolerance issue brings controversy to A&M faculty COLLEGE STATION - A bitter controversy that erupted in February in the Texas A& M University College of Education regarding a proposed tolerance statement for gays has prompted faculty members to accuse each other of bigotry, the campus newspaper, the Batallion, reported late in March. Others question whether Texas A&M Dean Jane Conoley is imposing her political views on the college. The college's faculty advisory committee was to consider a final draft of a diversity statement it first proposed Feb. 4. Eight professors, including Stephen Crouse, associate dean of the college, signed a letter objecting to the statement, which says faculty must "celebrate and promote all forms of human diversity" and lists sexual orientation as a protected status, along with race, gender and other categories. The letter suggests the committee adopt a general non-discrimination statement similar to that of the university, and said Christian faculty should not have to "celebrate and promote" a lifestyle they believe is immoral. In a Feb. 26 memo, Conoley rebuked the arguments Crouse and others set forth to their letter. Conoley also instituted a new policy that states the college "celebrates and cherishes GLBT people." The statement, which is enforced as the college's policy and is separate from the faculty committee's statement, grants gays on fhe faculty "special access to protection and support" and states that any decision about promotion and tenure involv icserve "heightened scrutiny" From staff and wire reports
