Transcript Montrose News MAY 14, 1982 / MONTROSE VOICE 3 Mayor to get tough with 'massage parlours' and 'modeling studios' in Montrose Mayor Kathy Whitmire says she is ready to add muscle to police efforts to clamp down on the proliferation of sexually- oriented businesses in Houston, the majority of which are located in Montrose. She said May 11 that she is seeking help from the Harris County government to file public nuisance lawsuits against such businesses. Harris County has been more successful than the City of Houston in closing these establishments in the past. Mrs. Whitmire also said she is adding three more attorneys to the city's legal department to work exclusively on enforcing existing laws directed at sexually- oriented businesses- All the businesses being targeted are heterosexual establishments and include about a dozen on the "Westheimer Strip," a ten-block stretch from Bagby to Montrose. County Attorney Mike Driscoll was quoted in news reports as saying his office is working with the city "to use our authority under state law to padlock" these establishments. The county government has traditionally not enforced its laws on this subject within the city limits of Houston, leaving the city to enforce its own laws, but an attorney in the city's Legal Department said there's no reason the county couldn't enforce its laws within the city limits, since Houston is part of Harris County. The city and county laws on regulating sexually-oriented businesses are similar, except the city law requires the city to prove ownership, something that owners of the massage parlors and other busi nesses make difficult by frequent selling, sometimes to vagrants off the street, and by setting up strings of corporations. Mayor Whitmire lives in Montrose, and her home is only a few blocks from a nude modeling studio on West Alabama. Booklet released by League of Women Voters The League of Women Voters of Houston has announced the release of a booklet entitled "Women Under Texas Law." The publication, written by Lavora Spradlin Arizaga, a Houston attorney and director of the League of Women Voters of Texas, covers property rights, marriage, divorce, parent-child relationships, and domestic violence. Describing it as the most informative yet concise and clear writing available today on the subject of women and their legal rights in Texas, Ellen Solender, Prof- fesor of Law at SMU said, "This booklet is a good way for women to learn their rights." The booklet, which costs $2.50, may be purchased from the League of Women Voters of Houston, 1947 West Gray. Interact to hold forum on gay religious groups Internet's Educational Forum on Thursday, May 20, is to focus on the role ofthe "Gay Identified Organizations in Mainline Religious Denominations," the organization announced. The panel presentation is to begin at 7:30 p.m. at 3405 Mulberry and is to include representatives from Lutherans Concerned, Aytz Chayim, Episcopal Integrity and Dignity. Interact spokesperson Carl Owens said, in a prepared press release, "Many of Houston's gays and lesbians have formed special groups within their congregations. This forum will be a discussion about these group's roles within the structure of their denominations and congregations." The monthly educational forums are an activity of Interact, known officially as I/H Inc., a nonprofit educational and service organization. The forums are free and open to the public, they said. Voters reject gay rights ordinance Voters in Lincoln, Nebraska, May 11 rejected bya4-to-l margin a proposed ordinance that would have expanded local anti-discrimination ordinances to include gay people. The measure sought to add sexual orientation to the list of classifications, such as race, creed and gender, protected from discrimination in employment and housing. The vote was 37,249 to 10,419. Turnout was moderate as voters were also selecting Democratic and GOP gubernatorial nominees. Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska with a population of 150,000. A similar gay rights measure passed earlier this year in Austin, the capital of Texas, but which is a larger, more liberal college city. Gumshoe vs. gum mouth Pacific News Service Police Chief Mike Prather has quit his job in Grove, Oklahoma, after the city council refused to back his efforts to put some "teeth" into law enforcement. The trouble began when the chief ordered one of his sergeants to wear his dentures to work. When the officer ignored the order, he was demoted, only to be reinstated by the city council. "I didn't have the support ofthe board," the chief says, "So I resigned." WELL, GENTLEMEN, IBCUEVE V^'VE CREMQ) k(SNSTmiTICN VmiCHWLL* GQ0H//v^. _ WHOLi^m^lil^^/ ®yr_. "fte/CfaiA«8ri_- __•___"■ Montrose Mouth Fried chicken Kentucky Fried Chicken is about to open on Montrose Blvd. at the old Church's Fried Chicken location. Church's there folded and it's no wonder. Their service (attitude of employees toward customers) was almost as bad as Del Taco's on Richmond used to be—or as Popeye's on Fannin is still. No, we take that back. No one has service and employee attitude as bad as Popeye's on Fannin. The Mouth understands, from friends of the Popeye's home office people in New Orleans, that the Houston locations are franchises, but nevertheless the home office has been asked to take a look at employee's attitudes at the Houston locations. Now back to Kentucky Fried Chicken. If they manage their Montrose Blvd. location like their Shepherd Drive restaurant, they'll be first class. The people are friendly; the service is fast. And if it ain 't, the Mouth will let you know. Speaking of restaurants, the dispute between Pete St. George of the Brasserie restaurant on West Alabama and Cary Pasternak of Pasternak's Grocery next door continues. Pete rents (or was renting) the restaurant space from Cary, and claims he's being improperly evicted. Cary says Pete's lease has expired and he wants a different tennant. It's before a judge now. But meanwhile, Pete's other restaurant. The Bannister on Westheimer, has been converted into the Brasserie Too, hoping to get his old original Brasserie crowd there, since the original Brasserie, as of this writing, is "closed for remodeling." Last weekend's Mr. Gay Houston contest at Chases attracted hundreds for the first time to the club. Chases normal policy—so far—has been similar to that of several East Coast discos: high cover charge but free drinks. The net result being, if you're a heavy drinker, a better deal. If not a heavy drinker, then it's not a better deal than dance bars with lower or no cover charges, but also no free drinks. Now if you're a beer drinker, at Chases you'll be consuming an awful lot of thoee itty bitty bottles of Lite in order to get your "money's worth." This weekend marks the second annual Bivouac Party on the Russian River in northern California, an event that attracts people from across the U.S. The Montrose Voice faces the Montrose Mining Company this Sunday, 6:00 p.m., in MSA softball action, and Mining Company manager Randolph Parks and Voice publisher Henry McClurg have a little side bet going. If the Voice beats the Mining Company, the entire Voice softball team gets "a night of entertainment you won't soon forget" on the house at the Mining Company later that evening. Said Henry, "We certainly look forward to collecting on this bet Sunday. We're gonna whup their asses soundly and expect to be real thirsty afterward." What if the Mining Company wins? Well Henry, during an obvious lapse in his mental facilities, has agreed to purchase a full page in the Voice himself so that the Mining Company can do some bragging. Said Randolph, "And we do look forward to bragging about our certain victory over the Voice—in the Voice."
