Transcript Inside—Part % of "The Boy Who Picked the Bullets Up," an interview with author Charles Nelson Inside—"Hot Wax" returns, with the group High Inergy MontnjseVbiee The Newspaper of Montrose, Issue #48, Published Weekly Friday September 25, 1981 Good Evening Montrose weather tonight: Fair and mild with late night and early morning fog and a low of 67°. Saturday: Sunrise 7:12AM. Partly cloudy and warm with a high of 91°. Sunset 7:15PM. Montrose Band impressive at the Tower By Stewart McCloud Although the Montrose Symphonic Band is said to be $5000 in debt, you wouldn't have known it by their performance Sept. 19 at the Tower Theater, 1201 Westheimer. The band was quite impressive in range of selections and in diversity of its members. The group gave Montrose a superb performance. The selections ranged from the classicals of Hayden of Strauss to Broadway and cinema, including rousing renditions of music from Westwide Story and Superman, the Movie. But all was not completely serious, as the band displayed its light-hearted side with "Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Woodwinds and Percussion." That selection took the audience by surprise, as instruments were disassembled and reassembled with an incredible sound, that at first, you thought, "Oh no, they're messing up." After a few minutes though it became apparent (you had to be there, and you should have been) that the joke was on the audience. The Montrose Symphonic Band, under the direction of Andy Mills, is a tremendous achievement for our community. We should be proud. And we should support them financially too, Mills points out, as they are goodwill ambassadors for Montrose. Whitmire scolded over endorsement by gay group Appearing before the Seventh Congressional District Conservative Caucus, mayoral candidate Kathy Whitmire encountered a hostile crowd Sept. 21 that shouted questions about her Gay Political Caucus endorsement, reported Juan Ram6n Palomo in the Houston Post. Whitmire maintained she was glad to havs the GPC endorsement, which pleased few if any of 40 Conservative Caucus members present, the newspaper reported. Whitmire, and candidates Louis Macey and Al Green, and a representative for candidate Sheriff Jack Heard, appeared before the group, with Whitmire getting the most static and Macey getting the warmest welcome, it was reported. The Post said the first question was if she had received the endorsement of the GPC in response for her promise to recruit homosexuals for the police department. Whitmire answered, the newspaper said, that no such promise was made. This did not satisfy the audience, as one man was said to have shouted "Yeah, but you got the endorsement of those perverts." Whitmire was said to have answered, in a strong voice, "I am pleased to have that endorsement." The Post's Palomo reported Whitmire said that if the Texas sodomy statute were changed, there would no longer be any restrictions on hiring gay people as police officers. Dallas activist Don F. Baker has filed a suit questioning the constitutionality of the Texas sodomy statute and a ruling is expected shortly. Shiflett addresses City Council over police practices "The Houston Police Department carefully refrained from administering tests to (Police officer Kevin) McCoy immediately after the incident to detect the degree of drunkeness after he quickly admitted to drinking on duty," gay activist Steve Shiflett charged Sept. 16 before Houston City Council. Shiflett, head of Citizens for Human Equality (CHE), asked City Council to initiate a review ofthe policies governing conduct of off-duty police officers working security jobs. McCoy, 26, was found not guilty of negligent homicide Sept. 4 in state district court in the death of gay activist Fred Paez in 1980. Shiflett told city council the killing was "needless." McCoy admitted drinking on the off- duty job. "It is my argument that no Houstonian should have to fear a police officer for the possibility of being drunk while on duty," Shiflett said. McCoy denied being intoxicated the night Paez was killed, after Paez was said to have made sexual advances toward McCoy and another policeman. "We know that McCoy is homophobic—he beat up and broke a gay man's arm in high school. Now, this has occured with Fred (Paez). And as of late, we all have learned tht he is back on the streets with his gun," Shiflett said. Mayor Jim McConn said Council would consider Shiflett's request to review policies for off-duty police officers. Sodomy vote possible on floor of Congress -WASHINGTON-The Gay Rights National Lobby says, because of efforts by the Rev. Jerry Falwell, Congress may be voting Tuesday, Sept. 29 on whether "sodomy" should be a crime in the District of Columbia. The D.C. city government had earlier repealed an anti-sodomy statute. Rep. Larry McDonald (D—Ga.) is said to be ready to introduce on the House floor a measure to repeal the law and an unnamed senator was said to be ready to introduce the same legislation in the Senate. Steve Shiflett of Citizens for Human Equality (CHE) in Houston said he had been in telephone contact with GRNL, and was trying to alert others ofthe late- developing situation. "I think we need to call (Montrose congressional representative) Mickey Leland and (Texas senators) Lloyd Bent- son and John Tower and let our feelings be known on this," Shiflett said. "It's too late for letters. This thing is trying to sneak through. Phone calls to Washington will help stop it from passing."
