Gay and lesbian rights rally draws support

In an effort to have their voices heard,
homosexual and bisexual supporters took to
the avenue University Avenue.
About 400 people gathered in front of UPs
Libary West on Wednesday night for a Walk
for Freedom, but by the end of their journey
the number had grown to more than 600.
Gay and lesbian civil rights supporters held
signs, chanted and sang as they paraded
down University Avenue. Business owners,
employees and costumers along the route
flooded to the street to watch them.
American Civil Liberties Union member
Bill Gallagher, Gainesville Area Human

Family values under fire A
WASHINGTON As a senior at DePauw Univer University
sity University in Greencastle, Ind., Dan Quayle often engaged
in activities that did not promote the kind of values
dear to the heart of Norman Rockwells America.
Some of Quayles former fraternity members have
said that he was part of a group that frequently placed
transparent plastic wrap inside toilet seats to embar embarrass
rass embarrass unsuspecting souls with their bodily functions.
Even as an adult, Quayle exercised liberties with
women other than his wife, as well aS occasionally
consuming too much liquor and other stimulants,
according to well-placed Capitol Hill lobbyists.
Quayle isnt the only public official to ever engage
in hypocritical behavior. There are dozens of elected
officials in Washington who make a big deal of
espousing family values while living double lives. And
Quayle is by no means close to being considered one
of the most hypocritical public figures.
The problem with family values talk is that it
involves more than simple black and white answers,
often there are no acceptable solutions. But one feet
is clear. The stresses and cross-currents involved in
personal relationships today are by no means as easy
to deal with as they may have seemed in some earlier
era. The business of deciding whats moral and proper
is just not as clear-cut as it was back in the days of
Ozzie and Harriet. So who is to judge what are proper
family values? Is it better, for example, for Murphy
Brown to abort a child she wants because she is not
married? According to Ross Perot, this is simple. All
that is required is for people to decide these questions
before having unprotected sex. If life were so simple.
Another example of the complexity of the family
values controversy involves the recent decision by
Levi Strauss, manufacturer of the worlds most popu popular
lar popular blue jeans, to end its significant financial support
of the Boy Scouts of America, because of that organi organizations
zations organizations decision to ban homosexual scouts and scout scoutmasters.

homosexuals and atheists was contrary to its values
which cannot fund an organization that discriminates
on the basis of sexual orientation or religious beliefs.
Why would United Way of San Francisco, Wells
Fargo Bank and the Bank of America join Levi Strauss
in severing all ties to the Boy Scouts? Does this imply
these organizations have suddenly become anti-fam anti-family?
ily? anti-family? Obviously not. These companies just have a
different definition of family values. Influencing mi minors
nors minors in sensitive personal behavior or theology is
completely outrageous and not the business of scout scoutmasters.
masters. scoutmasters. Interpreting and drawing the lines of appro appropriate
priate appropriate behavior is what family values are about.
For the Boy Scouts not to understand that legiti legitimate
mate legitimate differences exist between its view of proper
family values and those embraced by Levi Strauss is
to expose a lack of judgment. The same can be said
of Quayle, who trumpets the dangers in holding
diverse views on family matters.
Here and Now fer
Cody Shearer /hHr-1
But to escalate the battle further, as the Boy Scouts
and others have, by encouraging fellow citizens to
boycott Levi Strauss products because they have
issued a varied interpretation of family values, is to
be totally out of bounds in my book.
The fact that they would penalize the Boy Scouts
for refusing to accept open practicing homosexuals
as scoutmasters shows they no longer want the
business of the majority of Americans, claimed Rev.
Donald Wildmon, a Methodist minister and director
of the American Family Association in promoting a
call for a national boycott of Levi products.
I could understand and even support such a boy boycott
cott boycott if Levi Strauss had encouraged gay scoutmasters
to introduce their young charges to gay sex. But
nothing of the sort has happened. Levi Strauss is only
practicing tolerance under the same broad guidelines
that have steered the Boy Scouts in the past To
stipulate otherwise, for personal or political gain, is
to further divide our country.
South Africas Naziland ln a highly critical
100-page report last week, Amnesty International

in the open, where they might be looking
back at me. I went to the Prairie hoping
to get a good look at an alligator.
I started at the Bolen Trail. Only a mile
long, the Bolen Trail can be explored
comfortably in a few hours. At the front
gate, there was a sign that read: While on
the trail, be alert for alligators, poisonous
snakes and bison.
The sign got me interested. Poisonous
snakes I could do without, but alligators?
And bison? I slung my camera over my

On the left trail, I found two trees that
grew out of a huge, rotten stump about
seven feet in diameter. The trees formed
matching arches, upside down like eye eyebrows,
brows, eyebrows, their peaks resting on the ground.
It took about 45 minutes to reach the
Prairie. The forest floor suddenly dropped
away, trees gave way to a large expanse
of brown and green flatlands. The Prairie

I might finally see some ofthe prophetized

Although the path is wide and clear cut,
the land feels unspoiled. Cattails and tall
grass grow alongside a wide variety of
tropical bushes and palms. I didn't see any

The gate would have been easy to jump,

several miles south on 441, are more
diverse. Open 8 to 5 daily, the Main

access to Lake Wauburg.
I started my visit at tour of this area at
the Visitor's Center, which offers histori historical
cal historical information about the Preserve and
displays of the wildlife present today.
Margaret Jensen, a volunteer who donates
four hours a week of her time to the
Preserve, answered a few questions and
suggested I see the slide park's slide show.
The room was air-conditioned, outside
was not, so I agreed.
It wasn't nearly as bad as you might
think. I learned, for example, that the
bison indigenous to Florida were killed
off more than 100 years ago and that the
herd on Paynes Prairie now was imported
from Oklahoma. The State has also
brought in wild horses.
I walked over to the nearby observation
tower hoping to get a good look at the
area. The tower turned out to be a three
story, raw wooden structure that shook
when I moved quickly. On the second
floor was a pay telescope. I put my quarter
in but left after 10 seconds because I can

ally usually only have a single copy at each store,
and the tape may have been damaged in the

Los Lobos crafted this album in that philoso philosophy.
The band made famous for "La Bamba"
goes well past their 1987 No. 1 hit. That
was a quirk and has no bearing on their skili
as musicians and song writers. This alburri
goes way past their brief fame with Paul
Simon on The Myth of Fingerprints. This is
their own mythos.
With Kiko, the band has maintained its
roots with the Los Angeles barrio and Tex-
Mex music, but stepped into a style that
There's swing with the odd "Kiko and the
Lavender Moon," good, distorted, bass bassladen
laden bassladen guitar rock with "Wicked Rain" and
basic folk singing with the haunting 'Two
There's the Neville Brothers-style New
Orleans groove with "Dream In Blue" and
rockabilly with "That Train Don't Stop
The common thread is David Hidalgo's
protean voice, his song-writing savoir faire
and the album's study of the human spirit.
A tale of that spiritual survival in Angels
with Dirty Faces stands as a good example:
"With one shoe on/ And one shoe lost/
Stands a wounded man/ Who just laughs it

Special bonus preview
VH-1, a self described MTV with
a softer touch, will be previewing
in Gainesville this weekend on Cox
Cable's channel 18. The preview
starts Saturday and runs through
Monday. Toni Ann King, a publicist
for the network, said VH-1 will be
showing an assortment of things
this weekend, including a concert
by the Neville Brothers, Madonna's
top 10 videos, "Sultry Saturday,"
(which King described as "sexy vid videos,"
eos," videos," and "Flix," the networks
movie show. This week's featured
film will be "Batman" (just in case
you haven't had enough hype for
the movie yet.)
The only sore point in what would be a
perfect album is the album's closing song,
"Rio de Tenampa" a Mexican hat dance
with a tuneless brass band accompaniment.
Nevertheless, viva Los Lobos. Hopefully
they're here to stay.

The Bombshell seven-inch single is out
and like a muffler scraping the pavement,
sparks are flying everywhere.
The limited edition two-tracks worth of
mint green vinyl started circulating around
town late last week and is definitely worth
the spin on your beat-up record player.
Jason, Ben, Chris and Var will celebrate
their milestone with a record release party
around 8 tonight at Yesterday and Today
Records. The band will play at the party,
but Var said probably not as loud as usual.

THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1992, APPLAUSE,
lease of the Henry Rollins spoken words
Faux pas of the week. I learned an
important lesson Saturday night standing
at the Covered Dish bar. Bill, Dish man manager,
ager, manager, explained to me that my reference
to Buckwheat Zydeco as "cajun" last week
was totally incorrect. They are "Creole"
and the difference has to do with location
and ancestry in Louisiana. Don't make the
same mistake I did.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has
recognized that concern for the black bear
population is warranted, but officials say
they placed the bears on hold because they
have higher priorities to deal with.
Endangered Species official Mike
Bentzien says the black bear could be placed
on a list known as the Special Rules for

bear and grey wolf. Being on this list would
require all black bear hunts to be justified
