James Nichols at his farm last week talks about the long year since the
Oklahoma City bombing. Today he's a celebrity and spokesman for the suspects: his brother, Terry, and Timothy McVeigh.
The bomb’s echo
Oklahoma City haunts Michigan town
By Allan Lengel >
Journal Staff Writer
DECKER - Dan Stomber dis
mounts his tractor in a muddy field in
this Michigan Thumb farming com
munity once comfortably blanketed in
anonymity.
“Did you hear him on TV the other
night?” he asks, referring to his neigh
bor and nemesis, James Nichols,
brother of Oklahoma bombing suspect
Terry Nichols. “He lied. He said he
never made bombs on his property.”
It’s been a year to this day that fed
eral agents from the FBI and the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms converged on James Nichols’
Decker farmhouse like ants on sticky
syrup, looking for clues to a bombing
that had transpired just two days
before in Oklahoma City some 1,000
miles away.
Time has not erased all the animos
ity, questions and bickering; it has not
healed the scars on Decker’s reputa
tion.
It has, however, devoured Decker’s
anonymity. It has made James Nichols
a local celebrity and self-anointed
spokesman for his brother, Terry, and
Timothy McVeigh, who face trial this
fall in Denver in the deaths of 168 peo
ple at the Alfred Murrah building in
Oklahoma City.
At one time, James was a prime
suspect in the bombing, but he was
never charged after prosecutors failed
to come up with evidence.
From outward appearances, all is
back to normal here. The FBI agents
who staked out Nichols 24 hours a day
no longer lurk in driveways and on
country roads reading papers, staring
aimlessly, communicating with one
another on radios.
Gone are the hoards of big-city
reporters, some from as far away as
London and Paris, who passed the
time during the raid on the Nichols
farm musing over their first trips to
Walmart or the fish dinner at the
Charmont restaurant in Cass City
Gone too are the intrusive, monster
TV trucks with live satellite feeds,
except for the few carrying reporters
seeking the anniversary piece inter
view. As a result, farmers don’t as
often find themselves jumping down

Detroit agency mobilizes
resources to serve seniors
Sunday Journal staff
Without help, Mrs. K. can’t stumble
across a room, soak her feet in a tub,
steam a pot of spinach or even get to
the bathroom.
You’d expect to find her in a nursing
home, but 99-year-old Mrs. K. still
lives at home, surrounded by familiar
furniture and faces.
Her great-granddaughter, Anna,
who works and cares for four children,
takes care of Mrs. K, too. But she
couldn’t do it without a Medicaid
home help grant, which pays someone
to watch Mrs. K. during the day.
Thanks to a community health care
plan developed by the Detroit Area
Agency on Aging (DAAA), more of
Detroit’s ailing seniors now can
receive services designed to help them
remain at home.
“For years we had no money and
were struggling,” says Paul Bridge
water, executive director of the agency.
“Then we came up with a five-year
plan to mobilize our resources.”
A new Medicaid waiver program
jointly administered by DAAA and the
Family Independence Agency (Wayne
County Department of Social
Services) just began in Detroit.
This program, called Care Options,
can provide a whole host of services
not available under regular Medicaid
coverage.
Services can include adding handi
capped ramps or other modifications
to a home, purchasing medical equip
ment and supplies, providing private
duty nurses and personal response
systems, delivering hot meals to
homes and even providing people who
can supervise the elderly while their
caregivers take a break.
“It begins to lay the foundation for
long-term care in the community,”
says Bridgewater. “This Medicaid
waiver program . . . creates a new
opportunity we didn’t have before.”
This program for low-income
seniors with medically documented
illnesses has 240 slots to be filled by
the end of September.
Project Choice, a 10-year-old state-
funded program, provides individual
health services for older adults who
don’t meet the requirements of the
Care Options program.
The DAAA also has an empower
ment zone project ready to go. It is
called Improving Services for Family
Elders. Under this program, the
DAAA will assist and strengthen
existing community health agencies
in the zone.
“We are one of the first 29 projects
that have gone through all the steps,”
says Earlene Traylor Neal, special
projects director for DAAA.
“We are trying to improve the quali
ty of life for seniors in the empower-

term care in the

ment zone,” she said. “We not only
want to provide services to help the
frail elderly but also promote econom
ic empowerment for providers already
in the zone.”
Another new DAAA administered
project is Project Care, which is fund
ed by Detroit Edison. This is a repair
and energy management program for
300 adults over 60 who meet Edison’s
income guidelines and demonstrate
the need for home repairs or home
weatherization.
People approved for this program
could receive electrical upgrades; ceil
ing, attic, floor and wall insulation;
roof vents; window and door replace
ments; roofing repairs, and other ser
vices.
“Each of these programs sort of
builds on the others,” says Gloria
Hicks Long, executive assistant for
Project Choice. “If the care manage
ment team goes out, and there’s a
house that needs repairs, they could
well make a referral.
“We want to deal with the people
most at risk and give them a priority
of service.”
More help available
Another project of the Detroit
Area Agency on Aging is Detroit
Meals on Wheels, a weekend and
holiday feeding program sup
ported by private donations and
volunteers. It will benefit from
ChefFest ’96 at Mac & Ray’s
overlooking Anchor Bay in
Harrison Township. The event
takes place from 6-10 p.m., May

Tape catches
prosecutor’s

Journal Staff Writer
It’s been a little over a year since an
Oakland University math professor
was found lying outside a campus
building, unconscious and badly beat
en.
Stuart Sui-Sheng Wang, an interna
tionally renowned mathematician,
survived the assault. His two attack
ers are behind bars.
Yet a question lingers: Did a chief
assistant with the Oakland County
Prosecutor’s Office attempt to inter
fere with a police investigation and
questioning of a suspect?
A copy of a tape recording obtained
by the Detroit Sunday Journal under
the Michigan Freedom of Information
Act shows that Joyce Todd, a veteran
attorney who heads the prosecutor’s
appellate division, advised her hus
band, John Todd, also an attorney, on
how to deal with police and to stop a
police interview of a suspect eventu
ally convicted of the attack.
Joyce Todd, who recently dropped
out of a Rochester District Court judi
cial race, denies any wrongdoing by
her or her husband.
“There was no attempt to frustrate
or interfere with an investigation,”
said Joyce Todd, “unless advising
police what the law is, is illegal.”
John Todd, who is employed at
Michigan Christian College where one
of the suspects’ parents is on the
board, called the Rochester Police
Department the night of March 3,
1995, upon learning that Lee Than
Knight, 20, of Rochester had been
arrested in the beating.
John Todd expressed interest in
talking to Knight. Todd was placed on
hold until an officer was available to
talk to him, but a tape recorder con
tinued to record his comments to a

Remembering the Armenian Genocide
Vergin Mempreian, 86, was among those commemorating the
Armenian Genocide at a candlelight vigil in downtown Detroit on
Friday. Mempreian, of Dearborn, is a survivor of the 1915-23
massacres in Turkey that claimed 1.5 million Armenians, includ
ing her family. “I was left completely alone at age 5,” she said.
Armenians were scattered throughout the world; Detroit has one
of the largest U.S. communities with about 50,000. Friday’s vigil
was held at the statue of Armenian cleric Gomidas Vartabed on
East Jefferson. Other ceremonies include a 7 p.m. requiem ser
vice at St. Sarkis Armenian Church in Dearborn on Wednesday,
the 81st anniversary of the Genocide.
Many survivors are being honored, including Mempreian, who
wandered Turkey as an orphan, grew up in orphanages, married
in France and raised a family in the Detroit area. She still strug
gles with the bitterness of the tragedy, which has never been
acknowledged by modern-day Turkey. “I hate and I don’t hate,”
she said. “When you don’t have your parents’ love, you miss it
until the day you die.”

invited to sit on the dais at this year’s
dinner. “We’ve always invited them
before,” Watson said.
■ The chapter refused to allow the
newspapers to print a supplement
that’s usually handed out at the din
ner. The supplement provided $25,000
worth of promotional material for the
chapter, which the newspapers print

“But you can’t put a price tag on the
principles and priorities of workers to
be respected,” Watson said. The labor
movement provided such things as
worker health coverage and other
benefits, she said.
“We take a no-retreat position” on
the strikers’ rights,” Watson added.
The dinner is at 5 p.m. Sunday, April

This year’s dinner comes at a time

MSU art exhibit honors railroad
By Eric Freedman
Journal Lansing Bureau
EAST LANSING - “Enough miles of
railroad have been laid in the United
States to encircle the world four times.
Yet the men and women who carry out
the day-to-day task of laying and
repairing tracks are unnoticed and
unrecognized.”
With those words and in bold,
vibrant colors, former railroad laborer
Mark Priest uses his artistic talents to
honor his fellow workers and their
arduous work conditions.
Thirteen of his paintings and sever
al sketches are on display through
June 7 in the exhibit, “Iron Men, Steel
Rail: Track Labor and the Art of Mark
Priest,” at the Michigan State
University Museum.
Priest portrays the agonies, chal
lenges, issues and fellowship of the
crews. The people on his canvases may
be proud of their efforts and skills, or
dedicated to maintaining human dig
nity, or resigned to the tedium of what
they do, or simply trying to make the
grueling hours pass.
One painting shows an injured man
lying on the ground, his arm spurting
blood after a steel chip struck him. In
another, weary workers crowd onto a
bus after a draining 10-hour shift.
Priest teaches art at the University
of Louisville, in Kentucky, but knows
well of what he paints. From 1979 to
1986, he worked as a laborer and
track repairman for the 5,700-mile
Louisville & Nashville Railroad, now
part of CSX Corp.
One dramatic painting, “The
Dispute,” shows a worker suffering
from heatstroke while a boss orders
the crew back to work. “Management
didn’t have any respect for the men
out there. They treated us like cattle,”
he said of the incident. “I heard the
supervisor on the radio say, ‘Kick him
into the weeds and pull another man
up.’ ”
And in “Get Back to Work,” a fore
man screams at the men. As Priest
tells it: “It was almost like mules,
cracking the whip on the mules. Get
up, mule.”
There were lighter moments, too. In
“Jubilee,” for example, a sweaty labor
er rips off his shirt and rushes to a
stream to cool off. A self-portrait called
“Sweat of the Brow” shows Priest tak
ing a break for a drink of water.
If the art depicts a hard, harsh life,
that’s because the life was hard and

harsh. Crews worked 10 hours a day,
four days a week, risking injury from
heat, snakes, flying tools, careless
ness, lightning and other hazards. As
“Full Moon” shows, crews often
worked at night so the railroad could
laborers
run its trains uninterrupted during
the day.
“Drama is the quintessential ele
ment of all my pieces,” Priest
explained. “Figures are always active:
straining, pulling, pushing, running
and falling. I want to shake or jolt the
viewer, filling the viewer’s lungs with
the life of the men and women of the
railroad.”
The artist took a railroad job to pay
his way through college, and discov
ered it was brutal from the start: “For
four hours straight you would be bent
down, throwing out old spikes and
anchors. After your break, you’d get
right back to it. At the end of every
day, I had to contemplate whether or
not I would come back.”
In addition to Priest’s art, the exhib
it includes a book of photos by Jim
West, focusing on a day in the work
life of traveling CSX Railroad work
ers.
An accompanying display of rail
road tools and equipment is sponsored
by the Brotherhood of Maintenance of
Way Employees, Grand Trunk
Railroad and Durand Union Station.
The exhibit is part of “Our Daily
Work/Our Daily Lives,” an ongoing
salute to workers’ culture, sponsored
by the museum’s Michigan
Traditional Arts Program and by the
Labor Education Program at MSU’s
College of Labor and Industrial
Relations.
“We want viewers to see a connec
tion between art, culture and work in
their own lives,” said Yvonne
Lockwood, a curator of the exhibit.
Detroit police commanders, inspectors form union
By Roger Chesley
Journal Staff Writer
After years of working at the whim
of former Detroit Mayor Coleman
Young, high-ranking police officials
have formed a union they hope will
give them greater job security.
The Detroit Police Command
Officers
Association will
represent about
60 Detroit Police
inspectors and
commanders.
State officials
will certify the
union Monday.
Reginald
Turner Jr., a
lawyer repre
senting the
union, said it
will have the
largest number of such high-ranking
officials among police departments
statewide. His firm, Sachs Waldman
in Detroit, is considered the preemi
nent labor relations company in the
state.
Union leaders said they pushed for
if. **- — —~ * —
Broderick Williams,
union president
certification to make their jobs more
secure - and less vulnerable to the
whims of the police chief and mayor.
The leaders began seeking a union at
least three years ago.
Under Young, inspectors and com
manders - who are appointees - had
to sign undated letters of resignation.
Because the supervisors were non
union, they also had to take a 10 per
cent pay cut that lower-ranking,
unionized officers avoided.
Many inspectors and commanders
said they also feared making indepen
dent decisions or talking to the press
for fear of facing Young’s wrath and
subsequent demotion.
With the start of the new associa
tion, only the six highest-ranking
members of the 4,000-person depart
ment are nonunion. Those six are the
four deputy chiefs, executive deputy
chief and Chief Isaiah McKinnon.
Cmdr. Broderick Williams, the new
union’s president, said the organiza
tion will help protect the members, all
of whom are appointed by the chief.
“We feel there is a need, as best possi
ble, to nail down things for our pay,
benefits and,retirement benefits.”
- —S
Cmdr. John Clark, union treasurer,
said the threat of demotions without
due process was another factor.
“When you have a union, you have
due process,” said Clark, citing the
case of Cmdr. A1 Gomez, who several
years ago was demoted two ranks to
lieutenant for no apparent reason.
Gomez has since been reinstated as
commander and now heads the 4th
(Fort-Green) Precinct.
Other commanders were demoted or
disciplined after they refused to sell
tickets to mayoral fund-raisers.
“We know, ironically, at a time when
the tide seems to be going against
unions, we got one,” Clark added.
The base pay for commanders is
about $64,000 annually. Inspectors
make $58,300 annually.
McKinnon said the union “is some
thing we’ll abide by and live with.”
“We’ll continue to serve people with
the best possible professionalism,”
McKinnon said, adding that the union
is “not an affront to myself or Mayor
(Dennis) Archer.”
Senior police officials in March 1994
filed a petition with the Michigan
Employment Relations Commj.spj.^
to organize as one bargaining unit.
The City of Detroit countered that the
high-level officers were executives or
directly involved in the labor relations
process, thus prohibiting them from
collectively bargaining.
A MERC administrative law judge
ruled in February that the officers
could form the union but must have
two units, one for inspectors and the
other for commanders. The City has
not filed an appeal of the ruling, said
Marge Paquet, MERC elections super
visor. The City Law Department did
not return calls for comment.
In a subsequent election, inspectors
voted 21-14 and commanders 10-7 for
the union. Williams, the president,
said the next step is to seek a contract.
Turner, the union attorney, said the
ruling provides a great opportunity for
the high-ranking officers.
“It is important to emphasize that
the union leadership strongly desires
to maintain the high level of profes
sionalism in' the ranks,” Turner said.
“But they have significant concerns
about salary and benefits ... just like

Police investigate possible rape
of mentally impaired women
By Gene Schabath
Journal Staff Writer
Harper Woods police this week con
tinue their investigation into the pos
sibility that two mentally impaired
women in wheelchairs may have been
raped.
The investigation was launched
after it was discovered during recent
routine physical examinations that
both women have chlamydia, a sexu
ally transmitted disease.
The women have been patients at
the Woodcrest Homes in Harper
Woods, a residential facility, for about
four years. But Jim Dehem, director of
Wayne Community Family Services,
which oversees Woodcrest’s operation,
said they may have contracted
chlamydia years before, when they
were patients in a nursing home.
Harper Woods Police Sgt. Michael
Bramos said that because of the
women’s disabilities, they are unable
to say who might have had sex with
them.
But Dehem said none of the four
male residents at Woodcrest are
involved in the case.
“We are looking at all possibilities,
including that it could have happened
at a nursing home some time ago,”
Dehem said. “We tend to believe it is
something that happened in the past.
There are other places it could have
happened.”
He said it’s possible that the women
have had chlamydia for several years
but that earlier testing failed to detect
the disease.
Bramos said, however, that no one
has been cleared in the case, which he
called a criminal investigation.
He added that, based on what he
has learned about chlamydia, he does
not believe the disease could have

gone undetected for several years.
“It can’t be in an incubation period
for three, four or five years. That’s not
the information I received,” Bramos
said, and he further disputed Dehem’s
assertion that one possible cause of
the disease was poor hygiene.
Dr. Brenda Watson of Mt. Clemens
General Hospital agreed with Bramos
that chlamydia is sexually transmit
ted and “cannot be caused from poor
personal health habits.”
But she acknowledged that “it can
be silent in terms of it being there for
a while,” and added that “it is difficult
to detect, sometimes.”
She said the disease can cause infec
tions of female organs and severe
pelvic pain.
Dehem said he was concerned that
publicity about the case would
impugn the reputation of Woodcrest
Homes. He said the facility and others
operated by the owner, Donna Kimber,
have an excellent reputation for pro
viding care for the mentally and phys
ically impaired. Kimber was unavail
able for comment.
Critics of Engler’s budget
begin to lobby lawmakers
By Eric Freedman
Journal Lansing Bureau
LANSING - While Gov. John
Engler’s budget proposals draw him
national attention, constituents closer
to home say the governor is moving
Michigan in the wrong direction.
When it comes to proposed cuts in
adult education, for example, “we’re
concerned about the ripple effect,” said
Faith Robinson of Detroit, who coordi
nated Fair Budget Lobbying Day activ
ities at the Capitol on Tuesday.
“We’re not going to train people to
get jobs; we’re going to train them to
commit crimes,” she said.
About 45 members of the Michigan
Fair Budget Action Coalition, Mich
igan Welfare Rights Organization and
the Michigan Catholic Conference met
with legislators, particularly members
of the House Education Committee
and the Senate Families, Mental
Health and Human Services Com
mittee.
The groups called for higher grants
for Family Independence (formerly
Department of Social Services) Pro
gram recipients, opposed cuts in adult
education funding and criticized a bill
that would allow noncustodial parents
to send child support directly to the
other parent, bypassing the monitor
ing of the Friend of the Court office.
Robinson said members of the
Republican majority were cordial but
failed to acknowledge the adverse
human impact of the governor’s bud
get proposals.
“They’re trying to look at it almost
as if they wore rose-colored glasses,”
she said.

The sweet saga of cereal from Battle Creek
By Eric Freedman
Journal Lansing Bureau
BATTLE CREEK - Snap, crack
le, pop - nice history.
From Rice Krispies to Grape
Nuts, from W.K. Kellogg to Charles
W. Post, Battle Creek has been
America’s cereal bowl since
American Cereal Co., a predecessor
of Quaker Oats, began producing
Zest flaked cereal in 1888.
Many Battle Creek brands have
disappeared in the past 108 years -
no more Food of Eden, no more
Flak-ota, no more Malta Vita.
So has the renowned sanitarium
J.H. Kellogg headed, once the
world’s largest health institution.
But the city and cereal remain as
inextricably intertwined as raisins
and bran flakes, or oatmeal and
brown sugar, or Tony and tiger.
And now a heavily illustrated,
four-volume set published by the
Battle Creek area historical society
tells the tale.
Through hundreds of black-and-
white photographs and advertise
ments, “Battle Creek’s Gold-in-
Flakes” explores the origins of the
cereal industry and the people who
shaped it.
If you think health food is a
recent trend, think again. At the
turn of the century, C.W. Post
offered a free booklet, “The Road to
Wellville,” inside each package of
Grape Nuts.
And while Sugar Frosted Flakes
may be as American as apple pie,
Kellogg Co. recently added cereal
factories in Latvia, India and
China.
“Battle Creek’s Gold-in-Flakes” is
available for $36, including ship
ping and tax, from the Historical
Society of Battle Creek, 165 N.

Tape catches meddling by prosecutor
PROSECUTOR, from Page 3
woman who has been identified as his
wife. Joyce Todd apparently asks the
suspect’s status, clarifies case law and
tells her husband what to say to
police.
From the tape:
Joyce Todd: “Is he still there?”
John Todd: “Yeah.”
Joyce Todd: “Well, that’s good news.”
Joyce Todd: “... You want to tell her
to tell them to stop talking to him.”
John Todd: “I did.”
Police will not talk on the record.
Some have privately confided they
feel betrayed that a member of the
prosecutor’s office interceded for some
one suspected of attempted murder.
“Our job is hard enough as it is,” said
one officer who asked not to be named.
“We don’t need this kind of interfer
ence during investigations.”
Wrongdoing denied
Joyce Todd confirms the telephone
conversation but denies there was
anything improper about it.
“I’ve known the (Knight) children
ever since they were wee, little
babies,” said Todd, an assistant prose
cutor since 1979. “I went to school
with their parents. They are longtime
friends. My husband works with
them.”
Todd said Lee Knight’s parents were
out of town when he was arrested, and
a house sitter called them.
“It wasn’t believable he could do
something like that.
“We knew it couldn’t be so, and we
called to make sure he knew someone
was there for him,” she said. “We told
the police what the law was - I don’t
apologize for that. There was nothing
erroneous or deceitful said. We just
didn’t want his rights to be violated.
“If I had known the facts, I might
have felt differently,” she said. “If
someone is guilty of a crime, they
should be punished. I have no prob
lem with that. I will prosecute
them ... him ..ti in a heartbeat” Bart
Presented with a hypothetical
example, University of Detroit law
professor Larry Dubin, who teaches a
course in ethics, said advice like Todd’s
is neither illegal nor unethical. He
said the situation is one which is pop
ping up with increased frequency in
two-lawyer households.
“The instructions given (on tape)
seem pretty general,” said Dubin. “All
they’re talking is the law. There is no
inside maneuvering going on, no at
tempt to circumvent any policy or law,
so I don’t see any problem.
“But what is occurring here is some
thing we are faced with more and
more - attor
neys on op
posite sides of
an issue in a
setting where
they must con
front and deal
with shared
information,”
Dubin said. “In
those cases it is
mandated that
the other side
not only avoid
but report any
possible conflict
of interest.”
Todd said
Knight rejected
her husband’s
services, so
they were never on opposite sides of
the case. She said weeks later, when it
became clear her husband might be
called to testify for the defense, she
advised the prosecutor’s office of what
had occurred. She discounted rumors
the situation had anything to do with
her dropping out of the judicial race,
citing unrelated personal reasons for
her decision.
Ethics questioned
While the -action is not illegal, it
could violate ethics standards of the
prosecutor’s own staff, according to
Michael Modelski, a lawyer who once
held Todd’s current job.
“It appears both, attorneys were
attempting to frustrate law enforce
ment in an investigation,” said
Modelski. “They were trying to stop
police from getting a confession of the
defendant. If we were talking about
just a defense attorney, that might be
one thing. But one of these people is of
the prosecutor’s own staff. If it doesn’t
violate the ethics code, it sure raises
some ethical questions.”.
Under the prosecutor’s code of
ethics, no staff attorneys may hold law
employment outside the office: no out
side cases of any kind. Since neither
Todd nor her husband was officially
retained by Knight, it appears that
that provision
was not violated.
In November,
Knight and
Dwayne Barton,
20, of Rochester,
were both found
guilty of assault
with intent to
murder and as
sault with intent
to rob. According
to testimony,
Wang was work
ing late in his
office on March 2
and had gone to
buy a can of pop
when he came
upon the pair
breaking into
vending machines in O’Dowd Hall.
The pair tried to blind Wang with a
chemical spray, then beat him with a
pair of bolt cutters so severely it left
the tool’s imprint on his body. The pair
dragged Wang down three flights of
cement stairs, beat and kicked him
senseless, and left him outside the
building in freezing temperatures.
A university groundskeeper found
him about 4 a.m. He suffered five bro
ken ribs, a broken jaw and bleeding
and swelling of the brain.
Sentences are harsh
In police statements, Knight said he
intended to kill Wang. Barton said he
only wanted to “put him in a coma.”
Both defendants apologized to Wang,
but Oakland Circuit Judge Steven
Andrews doubted their sincerity. He
exceeded suggested sentencing guide
lines because of the brutality of the
crime. Guidelines called for 8- to 15-
year sentences. Andrews more than
doubled it, sentencing both to 30 to 60
years in prison.
“I’ve seen men shot in the face,
blown apart, but this is one of the most
savage beatings I’ve ever seen,” said
Andrews at sentencing.
Wang, who remains on a disability
leave from his university duties, was
unavailable for comment. While Wang
has regained his motor skills, he
reportedly still has difficulty with his
memory and has two aneurysms. It is
unknown if he ever will be able to
return to work.
Suit seeks damages
A lawsuit filed last month in
Oakland Circuit Court on behalf of
Wang and his wife, Margaret, seeks
more than $10,000 in damages from
Knight, Barton, a “John Doe Security
Agency” and an “Officer Gordon.”
Oakland University has its own police
department and an officer Mark
Gordon. A similar lawsuit, which
names the school as the sole defen
dant, is filed in the Michigan Court of
Claims. Under state law, claims
against state institutions, such as
Oakland University, must be filed
with the state court.
The lawsuit alleges that on Feb. 28,
1995, Gordon investigated a purse
theft in Dodge Hall and was informed
by three witnesses that two men - fit
ting the description of Knight and
Barton - had been seen wandering OU
buildings at odd hours. The lawsuit
alleges that word of the suspected
prowlers was never reported to uni
versity employees until March 4 - two
days after the assault.
The university would not comment
or allow police to be interviewed.
“We’ve been served in the matter and
really can’t say anything at this time,”
said OU spokeswoman Sharon
Campbell.
“Our job is hard
enough as it is,”
said one officer
who asked not to be
named. “We don’t
need this kind of
interference during
investigations.”

Bomb’s echo:
Oklahoma City
haunts Decker
BOMBING, from Page 1
from tractors to grant on-the-spot
audiences.
Business has slowed once again.
The hotels and restaurants are no
longer packed with reporters, camera
people and FBI and ATF agents.
“The first few days of the raid, sales
were at a record,” says Joan, the bar
tender at the Decker Tavern where
reporters from diverse locations
stopped in for interviews and beer.
She said she averaged $75 to $90 a
day in tips. Usually, she gets about
$15.
“I will say reporters and newsmen
are excellent tippers, except for one
paper,” she says. “The National
Enquirer gave a $5 tip and the Globe
35 cents.”
But she says the sudden influx of
business wasn’t worth it all - particu
larly since the suspects had connec
tions to the region.
“I don’t like the idea it left a terrible
scar on this area.”
Adds Peggy Frappart, a bartender
at the Charmont restaurant in nearby
Cass City: “It all brought extra busi
ness for those who worked here. I’d
say it’s been pretty normal now.”
Visitors still breeze through town
asking local folks about James
Nichols. And they still scarf up sou
venir hats at the Decker Tavern with
the words <c Where the Hell’s Decker
Bar?” The hats immediately jumped
from $4 to $8 when the town was
invaded by strangers after the raid on
the Nichols farm. Only last Christmas
did they drop to $6.
Folks look at James Nichols differ
ently these days. Some are amused.
Some have admiration and total faith
in his innocence. Others suspect he
had a hand in the bombing, or at least
prior knowledge. And some feel he’s
derived too much pleasure from the
mess.
These days, Nichols, 42, says he
signs autographs for admirers and
hardly makes an appearance in town,
or out of town for that matter, without
someone approaching him. It’s the
result of his bearded face having
appeared in local papers, the New
York Times, Newsweek, Time and on
CBS, ABC and NBC.
“I can’t go anywhere without some
one knowing me,” he says, standing
inside his barn, clad in standard
farmer gear - jeans, flannel shirt,
baseball cap and boots. “I don’t know
what to think of it. I didn’t ask the
government to come here” and raid
the farm.
He tells of dining recently in a
Denver restaurant, where the Okla
homa bombing trial will be held. A
waiter asked: “ ‘I don’t mean to be in
trusive, but are you Mr. Nichole?- *Evv
eryone in the restaurant is asking.’ ”
Back home, “I was uptown the other
night and everyone was staring,” he
said. “Everyone wanted to buy me a
beer, people who know me or people
who believe in me. They think I’m
some kind of hero. I don’t think so. I’m
just a dumb farmer out here.”
He says he still gets supportive let
ters from around the country - at
least one a week. And he gets tips
about circumstances surrounding the
bombing that he diligently follows up
in hopes of vindicating his brother.
“I’m deeply involved, people are call
ing left and right. We spend all our
time going over new evidence,” he
says, reluctant to get too specific, only
saying he’s currently looking into a
significant tip from a California
woman.
He also espouses different conspira
cy theories on the bombing. All lead to
the conclusion that his brother was
not involved and that maybe McVeigh
was set up. Sometimes the theories
sound a bit convoluted and half-
baked, as if he’s improvising during
the conversation.
“We’re real sure they had someone
impersonate Tim McVeigh,” he says.
“The government agents, the rogue
agents or whatever.”
Nichols says all his work on the
Oklahoma case, plus a book he’s work
ing on that will detail his experiences,
have cut into his social life. He says
he’s dating a woman, but hasn’t had
much time to^e^her. bolnsw vino
Some residents think he enjoys the
spotlight too much.
“I think this is what he wanted for a
long time,” says one friend who asked
not to be named. “This is kind of like a
dream come true for him, getting a lot
of press; he seems to enjoy it. I think
most people know him as a good-old-
boy farmer. He bitches about the gov
ernment. But I still feel he knew
something about it.”
On that touchy point, Nichols un
equivocally denies any knowledge.
“I’ve got nothing to hide. The gov
ernment has dissected me” and come
up with nothing, he says.
His neighbor, Stomber, talked to FBI
agents after the raid and told them
how Nichols and his brother and
McVeigh experimented with explo
sives on the farm.
These days, he doesn’t have much
good to say about James.
And vice versa.
“He was just vindictive,” says
Nichols of Stomber, who lives a
minute’s drive down the road. “I quit
associating with him; I want no part of
him. His credibility is down the
tubes.”
On television the other night,
Nichols denied making ammonium
nitrate bombs on his property. He said
he has made little bombs to help dis
lodge soy beans from a grain bin, and
that his brother Terry experimented
with little pop-bottle-size explosive
devices.
oafrselr ©fsfeigqPotfferty
Nook restaurant, just up the road
from the Nichols farm, is a James
Nichols supporter.
Standing behind the counter,
splashing a ladle of butter on the grill,
then grabbing two pieces of Hillbilly
brand bread, Bush, an elderly woman
with a good sense of humor and a high
schmooze quotient, turns around and
speaks up on behalf of Nichols, a fre
quent customer who often orders the
hamburger deluxe, fries included. “He
always drinks water,” she says.
“He says what a lot of people think.
I have nothing against him.”
Did he have any involvement or
knowledge of the bombing before
hand?
“I have my own ideas, but nothing
you’re going to write down,” she says
with a grin.
Others, like Joan, the bartender at
Decker Tavern, are annoyed by the
cavalier attitude displayed by some
who pass through town.
For a while, she says, some people
came in asking if there were any T-
shirts that said, “I got bombed at the
Decker Bar.” She said they never sold
them.
“We never had that slogan. To me
that’s extremely bad taste. The bomb
ing was nothing to laugh at.”
In her eyes, she says, James is no
celebrity. He comes in sometimes for a
Bud Light.
“He might get ranting and raving
and I’ll say, ‘Cut the BS; I don’t need to

Detroit union leader headed for national scene
By John Lippert
Journal Labor Writer
Paul Policicchio believes U.S. unions
are “on the edge,” that is, in danger of
dying, as much today as in the early
1930s, before industrial unions like
the UAW began their explosive
growth.
Policicchio, 45, is president of the
Service Employees International
Union Local 79, which represents
16,500 hospital, maintenance, munic
ipal and nursing home workers
throughout Michigan. His ideas about
how to fix unions matter. He’s a shoo-
in to be elected, at a convention this
week in Chicago, as an executive vice
president of the national SEIU. He’ll
be one of the top five officers of the
country’s third-largest and fastest-
growing union. With 1.1 million mem
bers, the SEIU has nearly doubled in
size in the last 16 years.

“There’s only one way for workers to achieve
the kind of job security they’ve had in the
past. That’s to engage in civil disobedience
and to refuse to kowtow to these arrogant,
multibillion-dollar corporations.”
- Paul Policicchio,
president of the Service Employees International Union Local 79
thereby legitimize unilateral deci
sions. That’s particularly true, he says,
of companies that run national and
international operations. Unions, he
says, have to “negotiate the contract in
the streets,” through mass demonstra
tions that generate community pres
sure. They have to spend more money
on organizing, since power is generat
ed only through numbers. He’s sup
porting a controversial proposal, to be
considered this week in Chicago, that
SEIU’s 300 locals shift $35 million
from traditional union activities into
organizing.
■ Political action: Most politicians,
even most Democrats, he says, are get
ting more worried about corporate
donors who pledge $50,000 or
$100,000 on a phone call, and getting
less worried about union workers who
toss $20 into a collection plate. His
answer: Unions “must camp out in
their offices, camp out in their dis
tricts back home,” until politicians get
more responsive.
■ Diversity: Unions can’t grow, he
says, if they don’t reflect the changing
demographics of the American work
force. The slate with which he’s run
ning is headed by Andy Stern, a 47-
year-old white male who’s the union’s
organizing director. The slate also
includes a white woman, a Hispanic
man and an African-American
woman.
The slate’s success was assured last
month when Richard Cordtz, now the
union’s interim president, announced
his retirement. Cordtz, 74, preceded
Policicchio as head of Detroit’s Local
79.
The slate promises aggressive new
tactics. Last month, Policicchio was
arrested along with 18 others as he
blocked a Detroit News driveway.
“There’s only one way for workers to
achieve the kind of job security they’ve
had in the past,” he says. “That’s to
engage in civil disobedience and to
refuse to kowtow to these arrogant,
multibillion-dollar corporations.”
Even as multinational corporations
become more aggressive, rank-and-file
workers are becoming more indepen
dent, more likely to question union
leaders. SEIU’s goal, Policicchio said,
is to harness that independence. “The
most successful organizing drives and
the most successful bargaining and
political campaigns,” he says, “are
those that involve massive member
participation.”
In Michigan nursing homes, where
Policicchio has spent most of his
career, 80 percent of workers are
women; 30 percent are minorities.
Annual turnover is 85 percent. SEIU
represents 7,000 of those workers. Its
share of Michigan nursing home
workers, already more than twice the
average for private-sector workers
nationwide at about 25 percent, is
expected to grow.

Judge is baffled by newspapers’ actions
Journal photo by REBECCA COOK
John Jaske, Gannett’s lead negotiator and assistant general counsel, leads the way as
NLRB hearings began last week. Tim Kelleher, executive vice-president for labor relations
for Detroit Newspapers, follows with cartons of documents.
Opening round of
NLRB hearing focuses
on Gannett’s Jaske
By John Lippert
Journal Labor Writer
“It’s unheard of in all my years of
practice. ... It baffles me.”
That’s what Thomas Wilks said at
last week’s opening of a National
Labor Relations Board trial on nine
counts of labor law violations against
the Detroit News and Free Press.
the newspaper strike
Wilks is an administrative law
judge. He was angered over the news
papers’ failure to respond to subpoe
nas delivered in February by six strik
ing unions and the NLRB, and by the
papers’ inability to offer an adequate
explanation for the failure. At week’s
end, he still was considering whether
to order the newspapers to turn over
300 pages of disputed documents,
including reports that John Jaske
sends each month to his superiors at
Gannett Co. Inc. headquarters in
Virginia.
Gannett owns the News. Jaske is
the company’s assistant general coun
sel and lead bargainer at its newspa
pers around the country.
Jaske sought to shield the reports
by claiming they’re private bargaining
plans and private attorney-client com
munications. He admitted, though,
that neither he, on Gannett’s behalf,
nor Gannett itself, had sought a for
mal NLRB order quashing the sub
poenas, as is required by federal rules.
Sam McKnight, lead attorney for
the striking newspaper unions, said
the dispute shows Jaske is the prime
architect of Gannett’s bargaining and
strikebreaking strategies in Detroit.
At one point, Jaske said he has
authority to make decisions on labor
matters at all Gannett properties
nationwide, unless he decides that
consultation with his superiors is nec
essary.
Also, McKnight said, Jaske’s failure
to respond to the subpoenas typifies
Gannett’s approach to collective bar
gaining.
“Gannett doesn’t have many big
unions, except in Detroit,” McKnight
said. “They’re in medium and small
markets where they’ve gotten rid of
unions. They believe in the application
of brute force, and they’re impatient
with the details of bargaining.
“And they may be willing to lose
everything. They may say, What does
it matter, if we lose $20 million, or
$100 million, or $500 million? We can
still wear the unions down.’ ”
In her opening remarks, NLRB
attorney Linda Hammell said Jaske
and other News bargainers caused the
strike through bad-faith bargaining.;
For example, she said, he failed to pro
vide the Newspaper Guild with
details about how a proposed merit
pay plan would work, declared talks to
be at an impasse before key details
had been discussed, and informed
individual workers instead of Guild
bargainers that the plan had been
unilaterally imposed.
“What will more profoundly under
mine the bargaining process,”
Hammell asked, “than the News’ con
duct herein?”
Robert Battista, a Butzel Long
attorney speaking on Jaske’s behalf,
called Hammell’s case deficient, but
postponed a formal opening state
ment.
He’ll have plenty of time. The trial
will unfold in alternating weeks
through the summer. A decision may
not come before the end of the year.
A victory for the NLRB would affirm
the strikers’ right, which can be exer
cised at any time, to return to their old
jobs, pay and working conditions. If
the newspapers refuse to take them
back, and lose the trial and any subse
quent appeals, they would be liable for
back pay from the date of the strikers’
unconditional offer to return. That
could quickly snowball into a huge lia
bility.
At week’s end, the newspapers still
hadn’t responded to an April 8 modifi
cation in contract demands by
Teamsters Local 372. Various repre
sentatives for the newspapers had
sought out television cameras to
declare themselves encouraged by the
Teamsters shift. A1 Derey, the local’s
chief bargaining officer, said Friday
he’s still waiting, “still hoping to get
these negotiations off the dime.”
In a statement last week, Gannett
said its broadcast earnings had
soared, in part because of recent
acquisitions, but that the Detroit
strike and higher newsprint costs had
hurt newspaper profits. Overall,
Gannett earned $89.4 million during
the first three months of 1996, com
pared to $86.2 million in the same
period last year.
Knight-Ridder Inc., which owns the
Free Press, will announce results next
week.
■ Newspaper recycling has
dropped 29.11 percent in Dearborn
since last summer. Fewer people are
reading the News and Free Press,
city officials said, because they sym
pathize with strikers.
■ The Rev. Ed Rowe of Central
United Methodist Church and the
Rev Odell Jones of Pleasant Grove
Baptist Church will travel to the
Knight-Ridder shareholder meeting
in Miami on Tuesday. They’ll pre
sent a list of 800 Detroit area reli
gious leaders who’ve condemned the
use of permanent replacements for
News and Free Press strikers.
Florida building trades activists,
meanwhile, will try to torpedo a
“poison pill” defense that Knight-
Ridder recently enacted against
hostile takeovers.
■ Readers United, a community
group, issued an “Honor Roll” of par
ticipants in civil disobedience at
strike notebook
newspaper driveways since March
6. After 54 teachers and other edu
cational professionals were arrested
last week, the list now includes 232
people. More civil disobedience is
planned for 4 p.m. Thursday, start
ing at St. Al’s Community Center,
1234 Washington Blvd., Detroit.
■ Felony conspiracy charges
were dropped against a Teamster
and six press operators who were
arrested in August, amid front-page
stories and other media fanfare,
near a newspaper warehouse in
Farmington Hills. Judge Frederick
Harris ruled the search that police
say turned up baseball bats, masks
and nails in their cars was illegal.
Prosecutors said they will appeal.
Finally, from the ever-popular “It’s
Hard to Get Good Help” file:
■ Stephen Advokat, the Sunday
Journal personal finance writer, got
punched Sunday when he was pick-
eting a “hawker” selling the Detroit
News and Free Press on Livernois
Avenue in Detroit. Detroit police,
after discovering an outstanding
felony warrant, led the hawker
away.
■ Barbara Boman, a 59-year-old
mother-in-law of two striking
Teamsters, got punched and knocked
to the ground Sunday while remind
ing a Detroit Newspaper delivery
man that he’s a scab. Warren police
are investigating.
■ Mitch Albom was mad Thursday
when three dozen strikers picketed
his speech at the Detroit Athletic
Club. Albom insisted he’s not a scab,
since he’s crossing picket lines to
take his own job, not somebody
else’s. Albom is contradicted, of
course, by the American Heritage
Dictionary. The assembled strikers
responded by telling Albom, “Foul
ball.”

Retired
judge
won’t
let go of
murder
case
By Norman Sinclair
Journal Staff Writer
GAYLORD - Nearly three months
after Judge William Porter’s retire
ment, lawyers for the defendants in
the Jerry Tobias murder case still
want the ex-jurist to let go of the case.
The lawyers have accused Porter of
being biased against their clients.
During a Jan. 18 bond hearing for
defendants Walter (Terry) Moore and
Mark William Canter, in his last offi
cial act as a judge, Porter said from
the bench that despite his decision to
grant them new trials, he believed
they were guilty of killing Tobias.
After retiring to Florida Jan. 31,
Porter arranged to have himself
appointed to hear further motions
filed in the case. Among the pending
motions are ones to have the case dis
missed.

After retiring to Florida, Judge William Porter arranged to have himself appointed to hear motions in the Jerry Tobias murder case.
Lawyers Ray MacNeil, Stuart
Hubbell, and Bruce Donaldson then
asked Porter to take himself off the
case. Porter refused.
In a series of motions and affidavits
filed last week in Otsego Circuit
Court, the lawyers said that not only
did Porter say he believed their clients
are guilty, he also stalled a request for
a grand jury to investigate the killing.
The controversial case also took
another strange turn last week as
Hubbell revealed in an affidavit that
Porter tried to recruit him to file a
complaint against Michigan Appeals
Judge Myron Wahls in 1992. Hubbell
said he declined to do so.
In his affidavit responding to the
charges, Porter contradicted the
lawyers. He said he did not have a
bias against the defendants and
denied saying he believed them
guilty.
Porter said he did not act on the
grand jury request because the
lawyers had agreed to put it aside, an
assertion the lawyers said was
unfounded.
In the Wahls matter, Porter said he
merely approached Hubbell for profes
sional advice in fulfilling a “painful
professional obligation” to follow up on
an allegation of judicial impropriety.
Wahls, who said he does not know
Porter, said he was stunned by the
accusation.
“That is not the way we function at
the Court of Appeals,” he said.
Reporter strains judicial decorum in Kevorkian trial
By Mike Martindale
Journal Staff Writer
A plan to compare Oakland Circuit
Judge David F. Breck with a comic
film character prompted him to con
sent to a recent and controversial
interview with a replacement Detroit
News reporter.
Breck, who is currently hearing the
Dr. Jack Kevorkian assisted suicide
case, was asked recently to disqualify
himself from the matter because of
biased remarks he allegedly made to
replacement reporter Brian Harmon.
As Breck explains it, he met with
Harmon only in an effort to avoid com
parisons with the late actor Fred
Gwynne.
“... my purpose in meeting with the
reporter was to discourage him from
what I understood his original intent
to be; namely to publish a story com
paring me to a judge in the movie ‘My
Cousin Vinny,’ ” Breck wrote last week
in an order denying the motion for dis
qualification.
“Being concerned that such a story
would cast a circus-like atmosphere
over this trial, I agreed to meet
intending to dissuade him.”
In “My Cousin Vinny,” a comedy,
actor Joe Pesci portrays a novice attor
ney from Brooklyn, Vincent
LaGuardia Gambini, who travels
south to Beechum County, Ala., to rep
resent a cousin falsely charged with
murder. Pesci’s character plays off
Gwynne’s portrayal of fictitious Judge
Chamberlain Haller, a stern court
room disciplinarian meting out justice
with an iron fist in rural Alabama.
That a reporter would seek to draw
a comparison between a respected,
veteran jurist and a Hollywood actor
is odd. About the only comparison to
be drawn between Breck and Gwynne
- probably best known for his role as
lovable Herman Munster in TV’s “The
Munsters” - is of two tall, white men.
Breck wrote in his order that he and
Harmon had a “pleasant discussion
about my background, during which I
refused to discuss this case, and he
was persuaded not to pursue his orig
inal goal.”
Harmon subsequently wrote a front
page article about Breck and how he
had seen discrimination in his court
room and deliberate exclusion of
blacks injury pools by the prosecutor’s
office.
In his order, Breck denied telling
Harmon that he had sent notice to
attorneys regarding “the four African
Americans in the pool” because the
meeting with Harmon took place well
before the jury returned on April 15
and “I couldn’t have because I didn’t
realize there were four blacks in the
pool.”
Breck did write that one paragraph
in the News article written by
Harmon “appears close to what I said.
However it is not complete because I
have not seen prosecutors improperly
use peremptory challenges in recent
years.”
It is not the first time a replacement
reporter has been the focus of contro
versy during the Kevorkian trial. A
replacement reporter for the Detroit
Free Press unquestioningly reported
as fact that defense attorney Geoffrey
Fieger planned to put on a puppet
show for jurors at Kevorkian’s last
trial.
Breck notes that Harmon
“approached the bench at the close of
court and apologized for the inaccura
cies in his article.”

Clinton to sign
antiterrorist bill
WASHINGTON - The White House
says President Clinton will sign a
long-awaited antiterrorism bill this
week after he returns from his trip to
Korea, Japan and Russia.
Clinton called for such a bill in the
wake of the April 1995 Oklahoma fed
eral building bombing that killed 168
people, and Congress gave it final
approval Thursday, on the eve of the
anniversary of the blast.
The bill allocates $1 billion over four
years for federal antiterrorist activi
ties, increases penalties for terrorist
acts and makes it more difficult for
death row inmates to stave off execu
tion with years of appeals.
Birth methods compared
BOSTON - A study of 5,000 preg
nant women whose water broke before
labor began found that waiting for
labor to start naturally is as good an
approach as inducing it.
The study, published in the latest
New England Journal of Medicine,
contradicts earlier research that indi
cated doctors should use drugs to
induce labor in such cases to minimize
the chances of infections or other com
plications. The researchers suggested
women be allowed to choose the
approach they want.
No proof drug testing works
NEW YORK - Random drug testing
in the workplace has increased 1,200
percent in the last decade and last
year cost U.S. firms more than a quar
ter of a billion dollars. However, the
American Management Association
said Thursday there’s no proof testing

Bullfighters may walk
MADRID - Spain’s bullfighters are
threatening to hang up their sequined
“suits of light” and go on strike
Wednesday if the government does not
publicly affirm a new law governing
the traditional festivals of bulls.
It would allow bullfighters, breeders
and organizers to regulate much of
their own activity, but fans have pres
sured the government with com
plaints that such a law would only
increase such illicit practices as shav
ing the bulls’ horns to make them less
lethal.

Reacting
to the
killings
Israelis demonstrate
Friday in Jerusalem for
peace and against the
Israeli military operation
in Lebanon.

Slaughters rock Mideast peace hopes
Journal staff and wire reports
Two slaughters of the innocent last
week tore deep new gashes across the
violence-scarred Middle East.
The first, the massacre of 18 Greek
tourists near the great Egyptian pyra
mids. has been blamed on Muslim
extremists who reportedly shouted
“God is great” as they opened fire on a
crowd waiting to board a tour bus
Thursday morning. The second,
Israel’s shelling a few hours later of a
United Nations post in southern
Lebanon, killed more than 100 civilian
refugees there, many of them chil
dren. Four Fijiian peacekeepers were
among scores of wounded.
The twin tragedies capped nine
days of renewed Middle Eastern strife
that began with Katyusha rocket
attacks by Iranian-backed Hizballah
guerrillas in southern Lebanon on
Jewish settlements in northern Israel.
Israel responded to the rockets with
artillery and air assaults, and the con
flict escalated, terrifying the populace
in both countries.
World reaction had been muted
until Thursday’s spectacular killings,
but by the weekend, governments
were scrambling to express concern.
President Bill Clinton, on a visit to
Russia, condemned the attack on the
Greek tourists, and Clinton and
Russian President Boris Yeltsin said
they were sending top envoys to seek
a cease-fire in Lebanon.
In the Detroit area, Lebanese-
American groups said they would join
a rally in front of the White House
Tuesday afternoon “to send a message
that they (Israelis) are killing inno
cent people.”
Ali Jawad, chairman of the Arab-
American Council, said the adminis
tration “has been one-sided in sup
porting the Israeli government,” and
demonstrators would “call on the con
science of the American people to stop
the massacre.”
In Oak Park, Rabbi David Nelson of
Congregation Beth Shalom expressed
his horror at the new violence, calling
the civilian deaths “an awful conse
quence of war.”
“It’s awful that Katyusha rockets
should fall in Israel,” he said. “It’s
awful that innocent people should die
in Israel or Lebanon.” But, he added,
“you have to root out the cause of war
. . . you can’t live like this forever.”
Local teens jailed for letter threats
United Press International
DETROIT-Two 13-year-old Detroit
girls have been jailed on charges they
sent threatening letters to President
Bill Clinton, the first lady and their
daughter Chelsea.
Earlier this month, the teens were
warned by U.S. Secret Service agents
but apparently were undeterred,
allegedly sending three more threat
ening notes to the Clintons.
The girls - both seventh-graders at
Miller Middle School - were sent to
jail last Thursday after appearing in
juvenile court, and they may remain
there until a hearing this Thursday.
One of the girls broke into tears as
they were escorted from the court
room.
Scott Bergo, a lawyer for one, said
he viewed the matter as a childhood
prank that is being treated seriously
“because of the language in that let
ter,” which contained sexually explicit
passages.
The two were picked up Wednesday
at their school by Secret Service
agents and allegedly confessed to
writing the letters and signing the
name and address of a classmate with
whom they have an ongoing feud.
The pair also reportedly sent
threats to Detroit Police Chief Isaiah
McKinnon.
If the girls are convicted, their sen
tences can range from warnings to
confinement in a juvenile detention
facility until age 19 - a possible six
years.

Daryl Ramsey went to work for her mother
after too many midnight shifts as a registered
nurse complicated her life as a single mother. Her
mother, Jo Melvin, supervises Ramsey, another
daughter, and two granddaughters at the family’s
Melvin’s Hardware in Walled Lake.
Three sets of mothers and daughters working
in one 10,000-square-foot hardware store sets the
family business apart - and helps hammer home
a reputation for friendly, folksy service.
But moms as boss women are almost as com
mon as nails and bolts in Melvin’s Hardware. For
many of them, every day is Take Our Daughters
to Work Day. For the rest of the world, the day
comes on Thursday.
More than one-third of all firms in the United
States are owned by women in 1996 - that’s
almost 8 million women-owned firms, according
to the National Foundation for Women Business
Owners. Statistics on mother-daughter enterpris
es aren’t calculated.
In the Detroit area, mothers and daughters are
working together in businesses as diverse as law
firms, clothing stores, direct-mail processors,
printing companies and more. Michigan has
263,000 women-owned businesses, which employ
more than half a million people, according to
recent women business owners’ foundation
research.
Melvin’s Hardware has been owned by Jo
Melvin since 1971, when she bought it from a
father and son. Her husband, Dick, works for her.

It’s loud, it’s colorful and it’s guaranteed to work
Does some advertising grab
your attention and your
time while other ads bring
nothing more than a yawn?
Do you stop what you’re doing to
watch a TV commercial, or do you
just welcome it as a break?
Advertising is more than a mer
chandising effort. It’s a science, with
clearly established rules that indicate
what will and will not be effective.
One public relations firm has deter
mined that there are 12 words that
work as the most powerful per
suaders that get consumers, to loosen
the purse strings. They are: “Save,”
“Money” “You,” “New,” “Health,”
“Results,” “Easy,” “Safety,” “Love,”
“Discovery,” “Proven,” and
“Guarantee.” If you watch the ads,
you’ll see and hear them again and
again.
The list is fun to play with. I’m
Esther
Shapiro
looking forward to an ad that says,
‘You’ll love the new product that’s
guaranteed to save money and give
safe, easy results with this proven
discovery.”
Numbers are also a good attention
grabber, as in “Five easy steps to a
better income,” or a mouthwash
“improved three new ways.”
Words aren’t the only sales tools.
Color plays an important role in help
ing you make up your mind to buy.
According to one advertising and
packaging expert, probably the most
dramatic psychological messages are
sent via color.
Color can make a package appear
friendly, or aloof; masculine or femi
nine; active or passive. Pastels sug
gest elegance, while brighter tones
portray boldness and aggression.
Some colors even seem to sound,
feel or taste better than others. Pink,
lavender, pale yellow and green seem
to smell good. Red, green, yellow,
blue, white and gray have universal
appeal for the most part. A combina
tion of any of the two is considered
powerful.
Red is used in packaging because it
is important and aggressive and
makes things appear larger. It’s also
considered an appetite color. You see a
red apple on a box, you want to eat it.
Orange is also an appetite color and
is warm, active and sociable. Violet
seems to taste sweet and suggests
refinement. Yellow is cheerful, vibrant
and alive. Green is a cool appetite
color, fresh and tranquil. You don’t
see much black, because of its associ
ation with night and sorrow but
mostly because it makes things look
smaller.
In television, there are all sorts of
tricks used to get an ad message
across, like using words that have
lots of consonants. Vowels are easier
on the ear and softer. Sound is kept
at the maximum level allowed by fed
eral rules.
Do viewers object to the noise? One
New Yorker who died a few years ago
left several thousand dollars in his
will to be used in fighting loud com
mercials. Will these gimmicks lure
you into buying something you don’t
need? I guarantee it.
Esther Shapiro is the director of the
City of Detroit Consumer Affairs
Department.

Don’t expect much from retiree plan
The way the local media
gushed about President
Clinton’s proposals last week
to revamp retirement pro
grams, you’d think he unveiled the
greatest thing since the Early Bird
Special.
A more objective review of the pro
posals suggests the president’s plans
are more of the same old, same old:
benefit the wealthy and let the mid
dle class and everyone else fend for
themselves.
The media say Clinton’s proposals
would make it easier and cheaper for
small businesses to offer 401(k) plans
so workers could invest tax-deductible
money that grows tax-deferred.
Indeed, there are precious few tax
deductions left that are a better deal
than 401(k) programs. But would
Clinton’s proposals make it easier for
working men and women to help pre
pare for their own retirements?
Well, let’s look at the proposal that
enables employees to sock away more
than the current $30,000-a-year limit,
including money the company invests
on the employee’s behalf.
The president’s plan increases the
contribution limit to more than
$100,000 a year in some cases. It’s
doubtful $8-an-hour clerks, delivery
persons and others will find the funds
~y.
( _ |\ Stephen
Advokat
V ij Personal finance
for this provision.
Then there’s the plan to increase
the amount of money a worker can
set aside in a tax-deferred account
from his or her own resources,
excluding what the company chips in.
Currently, employees can shelter a
maximum of $9,500 of their own
money - but only when a certain per
centage of lower-paid employees also
participates.
That’s what tax-deferred programs
mean when they claim to have
“nondiscrimination” clauses. They
give management an incentive to see
that all employees participate, not
just their highly compensated work
ers. If the guys on the line don’t par
ticipate, then the guys in the glass
office can’t participate.
Clinton’s proposals, which require
congressional approval, would elimi
nate the relationship between what
the higher-paid employees and the
lower-paid workers must contribute
to make the plan work. That is, small
companies would no longer have to
spend money or time recruiting lower-
paid workers to participate in the
retirement plans.
True, that would save small compa
nies money, but it also means no one
would look out for the little guy’s
retirement needs.
Let’s look at one other proposal, this
time for Individual Retirement
Accounts. The president wants to
increase from $50,000 to $100,000 the
amount of money a couple may earn
(or increase from $35,000 to $70,000
what a single person may earn) and
still make tax-deductible contribu
tions to an IRA.
Granted, this could benefit middle-
class taxpayers, but many of these

But her third daughter “never never
wanted any part of the business,”
mother Marge Dorcey recalls.
All of Zahirah El-Amin’s four
daughters and three sons have
trekked through Instant Impressions,
their mother’s typesetting and copy
ing business on Dexter in Detroit.
“Each one would work in high school
people already contribute to retire
ment plans, albeit nondeductible
ones.
What are missing from the presi
dent’s proposals are incentives that
would help low-paid workers prepare
for more than a bare-bones retire
ment. One possibility would be new
tax credits that would encourage low-
income workers to save for retirement
and save on their taxes, too.

next one to come in,” she said. Her
youngest, 22-year-old Asia, is full-time

El-Amin enjoys having her family in
the business, but she confided that she
prefers her daughters’ skills over her
sons’. “I really like working with the
daughters better. ... Women really pay
more attention to detail, and they
have more finesse with customers.”
Business is a family affair for women
The voice of public education
Success—It’s all in the family
The family, for all of the differences and
peculiar traits of its individual members, is
a wonderful source of inspiration, energy
and growth. It’s for that very reason that we cele
brate Teacher Day/School Family Day each spring.
On Wednesday, May 7, citizens in every
local community throughout the nation are being
encouraged to take time to recognize the contri
butions of all school employees as well as the
fundamental importance of our public schools.
This year, in particular, we can spend a moment
reflecting on the great strides our Michigan public
schools have made in improving, innovating,
changing and restructuring the system in order to
do an even better job of meeting the educational
needs of our children.
While there are literally hundreds of won
derful examples of this innovative spirit in our
public schools throughout the state, one is partic
ularly exciting for its sheer scope and vision.
Eleven Oakland County school districts have got
ten together to meet the challenge of educating
their children.
It all started in 1991, when Bert Okma, a
veteran teacher of economics and history for the
Bloomfield Hills School District, took a risk. Okma
embraced that risk out of a concern that he might
not be doing all he could to prepare his students
to go forth after graduation to compete, survive
and thrive in a global economy. He was a chal
lenging and popular economics teacher, enthusi
astic about his subject—and yet—he still felt
there was a way he could do more. As his ideas
took shape, they became like an itch that can’t be
scratched. Finally, Bert Okma stepped out on a
limb to fly the banner of change and see if any
one in the Bloomfield Hills School District would
salute it.
Bert Okma’s proposal was profoundly
innovative. He envisioned a high school for stu
dents who wish to specialize in international
business and economics—students who would
graduate with an international baccalaureate
diploma, with multilanguage fluency, technical lit
eracy and cross-cultural understanding.
He took his idea to the Bloomfield Hills
superintendent and other administrators, to his
school board, his teaching colleagues and union
representatives. Neighboring school districts were
informed; parents and the business and univer
sity communities were involved. Not only the
Oakland school family, but also the entire educa
tion community saluted Bert’s innovative idea.
To summarize the dynamics of the inter
vening five years, Okma and members of the
Bloomfield Hills staff found support, enthusiasm
and cooperation on all sides. Other Oakland
County schools were intrigued by the chance to
offer such a unique educational choice and rigor
ous academic challenge to their students. Also
joining in the school/community partnership with
enthusiastic parents were major businesses such
as Ford Motor Company, the Detroit Branch of the
Federal Reserve Bank, Oakland County Depart
ment of Community and Economic Development,
and J.D. Powers and Associates.
Julius A. Maddox
MEA president
Another aspect
essential to the success of
this project was the spirit
of cooperation and sup
port for the school—union
representatives worked
out an agreement with the
administration establish
ing the terms and condi
tions of employment for
the teachers who will be
employed there. Further, a
team of area teachers developed an umbrella job
description for hiring teachers and support staff.
This summer—just five years after Okma
first floated his idea out to the educational com
munity—vision becomes reality. In August, the
doors will open to the International Academy,
the new high school whose mission is “To pro
mote human potential through productive and
cooperative individuals of good character work
ing to achieve democratic structures, an open
international economy and cross-cultural under
standing.”
Students will come from a consortium of
eleven Oakland County school districts: Avondale,
Berkley, Birmingham, Ferndale, Lake Orion,
Oxford, Rochester, Troy, West Bloomfield, Farm
ington and, of course, Bloomfield Hills. And greet
ing that first freshman class will be Bert Okma,
former economics teacher, now International
Academy principal and a man who knows the true
meaning of School Family Day!

ors. With the Olympics not far off, and
with both the Wings and the Pistons
in the playoffs, we find ourselves pon
dering once again: What is it about
sports that holds such a grip on our
psyche?
Let’s run through the theories here:
Sports as vicarious thrill. A
nation of couch potatoes yearns for
adventure, yet we’re too lazy to cre
ate our own. Sports lets us fantasize
that we’re the ones hitting homers or
dunking basketballs.
Sports as poor man’s opera. We
humans love spectacle, the bigger
and gaudier the better. Yet spectacle
is in short supply in our drab but-
toned-down world. Sports provides
winners, losers, award ceremonies,
national anthems - and the sight of
superbly conditioned men and
women going through the most rigor
ous human contortions.
Sports as bread and circuses.
The emperors of ancient Rome knew
they had to divert the attention of the
mob away from the ineptitude of the
governing class. Hence the Roman
outlays for “games.” Government
mostly stays out of sports today, but
the games themselves may provide
the same divertimento.
Sports as male bonding ritual.
For most of the history of the human
race, males cooperated in daily hunts.
Over eons of time, the need to cooper
ate in such life-and-death adventures
was hard-wired into men’s nature.
Sports comes closest to providing that
same experience today.
Sports as outlet for violence. We
humans have always been a violent
race. Modern life tamps down our
more destructive impulses. To com
pensate, we thrill to the sight of hock
ey goons squaring off and Indy cars
spinning out of control in a blaze of
smoke and fire.
Perhaps some or all of these apply.
But to our mind, none captures the
likely reasons why people young and
old, men and women, enjoy sports.
First, there is the unexpectedness of
sports. Humans love surprises, and
what provides a vaster array of unan
ticipated events than athletics?
Consider Norman’s collapse at the
Masters. Who would have predicted
that golf’s greatest money winner
could implode to such an astonishing
degree? It was the sheer drama of the
event that won our hearts.
Next, there is the narrative potency
of sports. In a world bereft of stories,
sports provides them by the boxcar.
Would the Pistons claw their way
back to the playoffs? Will the Red
Wings finally win the Stanley Cup?
How will the weird saga of Dennis
Rodman play out? Sports fills our
lives with tales of humans struggling
to be their best.
Finally, and perhaps most impor
tant, there is the pure joy of watching
a handful of humans do what none of
the rest of us can do. To see Cecil
Fielder crushing homers, to see Uta
Pippig come from far behind to win
the Boston Marathon, to see Barry
Sanders break one of his long-yardage
gains is to know ourselves in moments
of speed and grace.
So say what you will about the
greed of a George Steinbrenner, or the
ugliness of sports violence. Sports still
provides us with human endeavor in
some of its best and purest forms.

APRIL 21, 1996
The issue of welfare reform
remains a hotly debated top
ic, but a reasonable solution
to the issue is just as far
away from becoming a reality today
as it ever was. The primary reason for
this is an unwillingness on the part of
too many would-be-reformers to
accept reality.
The reality is that welfare reform
will never truly happen until the gov
ernment leaders implementing these
reforms accept the fact that true
reform will cost more money, not less.
Why? Because it costs more money -
and time and
effort - to get an
undereducated
individual with lit
tle or no job skills
ready to be self-
sufficient than it
does to let that
individual sit at
home and collect a
check. Job skills
training is not
cheap, and an
overabundance of
poorly adminis
tered training pro
grams is money
wasted.
In the eyes of
many, the millions
of dollars spent
every year on wel
fare is money
wasted on poor
individuals who
ought to be out
somewhere getting
a job. No one ever
seems to know
which tree all
these jobs are
growing on, but that doesn’t stop the
pseudo-reformers from pressing
onward.
In Iowa, the state’s two-year-old
Family Investment Program has
managed to cut dramatically the
numbers of people on the welfare
rolls, from 39,536 two years ago to
33,800 today. Many have found jobs,
and monthly cash payments to recip
ients have dropped from $14.1 mil
lion in January 1994 to $11.2 million
two years later. That’s the good news.
The problem, however, is that
Iowa’s program can’t provide suffi
cient child care expenses to cover all
recipients seeking work or job train
ing. Iowa isn’t the only state having a
hard time figuring out how to pay
that bill and save money at the same
time. Since most welfare recipients
are single mothers, lack of adequate
child care is a serious problem. In
addition, many of Iowa’s recipients
have realized that they will need
post-secondary education to qualify
for virtually any job that will pay
enough to keep them from drowning.
Unfortunately, there are more than
4,000 welfare recipients on the wait
ing list in Iowa for post-secondary
education benefits, meaning they
aren’t likely to get
any help for years,
if ever. What that
also implies is
that many recipi
ents are in jobs
where the income
and stability is so
fragile that they
could tumble back
to square one with
the occurrence of
a single unfortu
nate mishap.
Once again, this is
not just an Iowa
problem.
Despite all this,
the taxpaying
public has become
obsessed with sto
ries of welfare
cheats, whom they
view as represen
tative of everyone
on welfare. They
want those wel
fare bums thrown
into a job. Polit
ically, this makes
it difficult to
spend more money on a solution,
since the problem is misportrayed as
one that can be corrected by cutting
off the dollar faucet and trusting that
properly frightened poor people with
their backs thrown up against the
wall will miraculously manage to sur
vive. This twisted reasoning is the
equivalent of throwing a baby off a
ten-story building and trusting that
it will bounce to safety.
The only way to reform welfare is to
acknowledge the mistakes made in
the past, and then be willing to pay
for those mistakes in full. There is no
such thing as welfare reform on the
cheap.

Green for a day: Polluter’s pals woo voters
By Diane MacEachern
This year’s anniversary of Earth
Day may be marked by an unusual
level of activity from an unlikely
troupe of “environmentalists” - mem
bers of Congress who have spent the
last year systematically knocking the
teeth out of the laws and policies that
protect our air and water and safe
guard our natural resources, and who
now face re-election by an electorate
that is decidedly pro-environment.
Anti-environmental senators and
representatives have left almost no
law or regulation unturned in their
effort to undo the 26 years of progress
since the first Earth Day on April 22,
1970. Those regulations that protect
endangered species, conserve our pub
lic lands, and safeguard human health
and safety have been particularly sig
naled out for “streamlining,” the
Capitol Hill euphemism for gutting
environmental protection.
Among the most egregious actions
taken by the 104th Congress are those
that eviscerate the Endangered
Species Act, expedite the clear-cutting
of our ancient forests and cut funding
for the US Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA).
According to EPA Administrator
Carol Browner, enforcement of envi
ronmental standards, water quality
control and cleanup of toxic waste sites
and leaking oil tanks have all suffered
since Congress reduced funds for envi
ronmental enforcement by 25 percent
§nd cut $712 million in funding to
safeguard drinking water and keep
raw sewage out of rivers.
“We cannot ensure the American
people their air is clean, their drinking
water is safe, the health of their chil
dren is protected,” Browner said.
U.S. Interior Secretary Bruce
Babbitt expressed similar concern
over the efforts of anti-environment
legislators to dismantle the National
Park Service and undermine the
Endangered Species Act.
“I have yet to meet an American who
says we have too many national
parks,” Babbitt testified as he voiced
misgivings over the forced closing of
368 parks and visitor areas during the
recent budget impasses.
The hue and cry generated by gov
ernment officials charged with protect
ing our environment and by a public
that strongly favors strengthening,
not weakening, our environmental
laws have begun to worry those mem
bers of Congress who know they’ll
have to defend their pro-pollution
votes at town hall meetings, chicken
dinners and candidate debates.
Particularly alarming to this “brown
crowd” is the recent election of Rep.
Ron Wyden to fill the vacated U.S.
Senate seat of Oregon Sen. Bob
Packwood. Wyden, who ran on a
strong pro-environment platform, suc
cessfully made an issue of his oppo
nent’s record as a corporate polluter.
Republicans, whose anti-environ
ment record far outstrips that of the
Democrats, are particularly concerned
that their zealotry will take its toll at
the polls in November. A memo from
the House Republican Conference
urges members to launch what
amount to greenwashing campaigns
at home to distract voters from what
they’ve done on Capitol Hill.
Among other activities, the memo
suggests GOP members plant trees,
join in a community litter pick-up,
visit a zoo, create a data base of “car
ing constituents,” and yes, even partic
ipate in local Earth Day activities.
Environmentalists like Carl Pope,
executive director of the national
Sierra Club, aren’t impressed.
“Don’t be fooled,” he said. “Every
time a member of Congress plants a
tree, find out whether he or she voted
foj the ‘salvage’ rider that is allowing
clear-cutting on our national forest. If
your senator or representative makes
a symbolic visit to a recycling center,
ask about his or her vote to reduce the
EPA’s budget. If they stop by the zoo,
get their position on the Endangered
Species Act.”
“Americans do not want to roll back
the environmental gains of the past,”
said Deb Callahan, president of the
League of Conservation Voters. “Not
on Earth Day, not on any day. Any
politician who mistakenly believes
they do, does so at his or her own
peril.”
Diane MacEachern is the president
of Vanguard Communications, a
Washington-based firm that special
izes in environmental issues.
Tobacco ban could turn smokers into ‘criminals’
Your March 24 editorial recom
mends stepped-up government action
to accomplish the “dream” of a smoke-
free society. Such a dream would
involve declaring millions of decent,
ordinary people to be criminals, while
tens of thousands of them, many of
them your own union members, would
be swept up into prisons to pay for
their tobacco “crimes.” Violence would
skyrocket, as street-level tobacco deal
ers and their bosses would fight over
territory, battle police, get even with
snitches and forcefully collect loan
sharking debts from those who could
not afford the new, higher prices of
tobacco.
Although crime would go up as
some tobacco users would turn to
crime to feed their now-illegal habit,
more police resources would be devot
ed to fighting tobacco, leaving fewer
police to defend citizens against real
crime.
If history is any guide, the majority
of those imprisoned would be black.
After all, blacks make up only 13 per
cent of Michigan’s population, but 58
percent of Michigan’s prison inmates.
Why don’t you advocate a “determined
push” to do something about that?
And we should not expect to see “the
end of tobacco in our lifetimes,” any
more than 60 years of the war on
drugs have caused cocaine or marijua
na to disappear.
The corporations that run the main
stream media have selected tobacco
letters
companies as America’s chief villains
as they look for new ways to divert
public attention from their real agen
da, and you have jumped on the band
wagon. It is regrettable that while
striking union members are sacrific
ing so much to battle against injustice,
your editorial writer boldly battles in
favor of it.

Cheers for Troy High
I am writing you to congratulate the
Troy High symphony and concert
orchestras. In late March, they trav
eled to Orlando to compete in Disney’s
Magic Music Days Festival.
At the festival the concert orchestra
received second place, only losing to
the Troy High Symphony Orchestra.
The symphony orchestra walked away
with a first place in the string division
and in the full orchestra division,
which included some band members
to add to the full effect. Plus both of
the Troy High orchestras were given
the title of National Grand Champion,
which is the highest honor, for the sec
ond time attending the festival.
I don’t think I have ever heard such
beautiful music. Some of the audience
members were crying.
In addition to the festival, the
orchestras were invited to perform at
Epcot Center where tourists were
given a spectacular show.
I think that the Troy High orches
tras deserve to be congratulated for all
of their hard work and effort that they
put into their music every day. They
did such a great job and I hope they
continue in their success.

A good read
I enjoyed the March 31 issue of the
Detroit Sunday Journal.
Diane Hofsess’ and Carol
Teegardin’s whimsical bit about the
“infanticipating” Chuck and Susan
Gaidica, along with Robin Mather’s
likening a new sprout in her garden to
a “haiku of hope,” convinced me that
the Journal has some of the best writ
ers in Detroit.
The Gary Dymski article about real
heroes, and Susan Watson’s column
about kind expressions of affection
showed that the Journal has a heart
and soul that is lacking in other
papers.
Sadly, the award-winning photo
graph of Sterling Heights Police Lt.
Jack Severance’s cowardly attack on
pressman Frank Brabanec showed
what the strikers are up against.
It is much easier to be a coward
than a hero, and the lieutenant is free
to read what he wants, but I am look
ing forward to reading more from the
good people at the Detroit Sunday
Journal.

City engineers unhappy
The Association of Detroit Engin
eers (ADE) has not had a negotiated
contract with the city of Detroit for
more than six years. The last contract,
a concession agreement, was dictated
to us as “take it or else.”
The salary of Detroit engineers has
not been adjusted for 20 years. We
receive 40 percent to 60 percent of
what other cities and private industry
pay their comparable engineers. Now
ADE members have worked without a
contract for nearly nine months. As
municipal employees, we are forbid
den to strike.
Detroit has not negotiated in good
faith. The city’s first offer was in
November, five months after the con
tract had expired. In Detroit’s offer,
the salary adjustment would be made
on an individual basis. It would
require the recommendation of the
supervisor, department heads and
personnel. This is a sham offer! It
would neuter an already weak compa
ny union.

Fieger pulls the plug on Kevorkian exhibit
Though Jack Kevorkian is

could be next on the dock

was set to open at Ann Arbor’s
Gallery Yribar - with Mr.

when Fieger yanked the show.
Owner Denise Yribar is hopping
mad. “This was something we had
been working on since last
January ... I lost a great deal of
money,” sez she. Law god Fieger
said he called off the show since
Yribar’s gallery is “an abandoned

so, she isn’t sobbing - she’s now
dating hot young actor Leonardo

Spectadium sports
Scott Forbes and some of his

now inking a deal to be partners
with those who run Spectadium -
the sprawling, TV-laden sports pub
in Troy. “We’re closing the restau
rant in July for renovations; we’ll
work on the menu and then we’ll
reopen,” said Forbes, who’s also
working up a second album of
country music with his brother,
Dennis.
Opposition research
Wealthy Democrat David
Hermelin is turning heads as far
away as D.C. these days. He
recently hosted a $50,000-a-head
fund-raising dinner for President
Clinton at his Bingham Farms
digs. Little birdies who fly in such
circles tell us that Republican

Hermelin and Max filled him in.

WXYZ-TV flickered on way back in

They feel founding Father
William Cunningham has for
gotten the group’s 1968 mission
statement which calls for “practi
cal action to overcome injustice”
- such as Detroit’s nasty newspa

is such a pal of folks like retired
Freep publisher Neal Shine and
Snooze publisher Bob Giles ...
Misleading signage
Hey, how did scab Freep writer
Rachel Konrad get into a mas
sive rally for newspaper strikers
last Sunday? Easy; she carried a
blue Teamsters Local 2040 picket
sign and passed herself off as a
striker. Cute. It’s also a violation
of the Freep’s ethics policy which,
among other things, states, “if we
have concealed our identity, the
story needs to say so.” It didn’t.
Flunking math, too
The Snooze (not known for it)
spelled “objectivity” wrong last
Sunday in a pundit piece about
the partisan press. They followed
up Wednesday by spelling
“ethics” wrong in a front-page
teaser about Madonna’s preg
nancy. Why does this not surprise
us?
Finding a quiet place would be music to my ears
Now that it’s spring, “even
the sparrow has found a
home,” as Psalm 84 says,
“and the swallow a nest.” As
it happens, I’m looking for a home,
too, but sparrows probably have had
an easier time of it.
Trouble is, searching for a new
place to live is near the bottom of my
list of pleasures, just above certain
intimate ultrasound procedures. And
it takes time, it’s frustrating, and it’s
a gamble.
When I came to Detroit 20-odd
years ago (some of them the oddest
years I can imagine), I found a little
apartment. Nice view, close to the
sound of trains. My friend and I lived
there in peace, oh, until dinnertime.
Then things began to go awry.
Our neighbors seemed to favor cab
bage, broccoli, rutabagas - which,
though tasty, raise a monumental
stench when cooked. And a marathon
of cooking went on in the apartment
Beaufort
Cranford
below and seeped up through our
floor. I went to work most days
smelling of cabbage, and lived most
nights smelling it. We spent long
hours at open windows, praying for
fresh air.
But lo, across the street a new
apartment complex was going up! So
we held our noses, bided our time
and became its first tenants. All was
adorable until a couple moved in
below with an electric piano.
Maybe even that would have been
OK, but I didn’t care to hear those
people’s conversation, either, especial
ly when it was unhappy or involved
carnal subjects. Frankly, I was
shocked. Not at the carnal subjects,
but that I was paying big money to
live where I could hear other people
talking and making babies at all
hours.
Silly me. I was so young and naive.
Since then I’ve listened to my neigh
bors in one apartment after another
talk, sneeze, laugh, play cards, make
love, visit the bathroom, vacuum,
throw small objects, drop pins.
OK, I admit I once had an apart
ment near Wayne State that was
utterly impervious to outside noises.
I should have stayed there, but
moved into a house. I should have
stayed there, too.
I’d planned to buy a house last fall,
but the newspaper strike took care of
that. Now I’m financially cramped by
a desire to continue eating, driving,
paying child support and having
occasional big fun with my kid. All
the affordable homes for rent seem
ready to implode and take me down
with them.
A quiet place doesn’t seem too
much to ask. I’m just dead-set
against bothering people simply by
hammering at the computer or
singing “Begin the Beguineand
don’t want them to bother me with
their own normal, innocent activities.
The problem with modern apart
ments often isn’t the quality of neigh
bors, anyhow, but the greed and
insensitivity of builders. They slap up
these places, charge enormous rents
and disappear to live elsewhere. And
if you have to listen to your neigh
bor’s gangsta rap at 180 decibels
while fighting a migraine, tough.
But let’s not be diverted by the
scum of the construction industry. I
plan to outwit them. Not by staying
in this basement, either. I’m not
unaccustomed to work, and the has
sles of moving are just another sort.
There’s certainly no place like home,
and I figure home’s out there some
where, waiting to be found.

Pick up an award
or sail with Urich
Among other noteworthy moments - like the end of “Murder One” and
“Picket Fences,” for example - this is yet another week of awards spe
cials on TV.
■ We have the “27th NAACP Image Awards,” hosted by Denzel and
Whitney (we’re on a first-name basis here) at 8 p.m. Tuesday on ABC
(Channel 7 in Detroit), and the “31st Academy of Country Music Awards” at 8
p.m. Wednesday on NBC (Channel 4).
Can we get some sort of award for enduring all these awards shows?
NBC promises that the “31st Academy of Country Music Awards” (8 p.m. Wednesday,
Channel 4) “puts the emphasis on making music, not speeches.” Faith Hill joins Ronny
Dunn (left) and Kix Brooks as hosts.
ner, and America was smitten by that
cute old Fyvush Finkel. Now CBS, of
all networks, is trying to race
through the canceled show’s final
first-run episodes before the May rat
ings sweeps start. Sad. But there are
three new hours airing this week,
two shows back-to-back at 9 p.m.
Wednesday; Louise Fletcher and
Charles Rocket are among the guest
stars.
■ The 1996 NBA Playoffs, 7:30 p.m.
Thursday, TBS and TNT - The pre
lude to this year’s Chicago Bulls coro
nation commences with doubleheader
matchups on both of Ted Turner’s
self-named networks Thursday and
Friday (before NBC takes over the
weekend) and a promise of live
updates on every game in progress.
Game times are 7:30 and 10 p.m. on
TBS, 8 and 10:30 on TNT.
■ Captains Courageous, 7 tonight,
The Family Channel - “Spenser” TV
movies, dog food commercials, “The
Lazarus Man” - like the title charac
ter of his cable series, MSU grad
Robert Urich seems to bring himself
back from the dead on a regular basis.
And he’s swashing his buckles in fine
fashion here as craggy sea salt Matt
Troup in a handsome new adaptation
of Rudyard Kipling’s classic 1897 sail
ing adventure.
■ 3rd Rock from the Sun, 8 tonight,
NBC - John
Lithgow has said
he’s having the
time of his life
doing this
assaultively goofy
first-year comedy
because it’s
allowing him to
be seen in ways
that are alien both to him and his
fans. Presumably, that would include
watching Big John stomp about in a
shag wig and high heels. That’s exact
ly what he does in this new episode
when his character dons drag to study
feminism in a women’s-only seminar
led by Dr. Albright (Jane Curtin).
■ Poltergeist: The Legacy, 8
tonight, Showtime - They’re ba-ack ...
and they’ll be back week after week.
In the premiere of a cable series that
holds no connection to Steven
Spielberg’s 1982 spooky movie, a
secret society known as “The Legacy”
devotes itself to investigating reports
of supernatural occurrences. Helen
Shaver is the face you’ll recognize on
the show, from the same people who
bring you Showtime’s “Outer Limits”
anthology.
■ Harvest of Fire, 9 tonight, CBS
(Channel 62 in Detroit) - Let’s see: In
her long and diverse career, has Patty
Duke ever played an Amish widow
before? She discovers the joy of sect in
a substantial “Hallmark Hall of
Fame” TV-movie that bears only the
faintest echoes of the film “Witness”
because of the subject matter. Duke’s
heartland heroine has to forge an
unholy alliance with a shrewd FBI
agent (Lolita Davidovich) to solve a
series of barn arsons, but finds her
traditional values challenged through
a succession of intense (and articu
lately written) dialogues.
■ Frasier, 9:30 tonight, NBC - One of
the most memorable episodes of this
memorable sitcom sees Jane Leeves
(Daphne) place herself in what co-star
David Hyde Pierce (Niles) calls a
spontaneous, “anatomically impossi
ble” position while dancing Niles into
romantic ecstasy at a society ball.
Series star
Kelsey
Grammer
made his
directing debut
with this script
- a repeat from
earlier this
season, and
that rarest of half-hours that runs the
emotional gamut from hilarity to sor
row - which explains Frasier’s rela
tive absence from the scenes.

Highlights
■ Why Planes Go Down, 8 p.m.
Monday, Fox (Channel 2 in Detroit) -
The title of this hour-long special is
pretty self-explanatory. And Gillian
Anderson from “The X-Files” hosts.
Oooh, that’s scary.
■ Murder One, 9 p.m. Monday, ABC
- If you’ve been following this court
room drama’s long, labyrinthine mur
der trial on a weekly basis, you will
now have some small inkling of how
O.J. Simpson must have felt. The
series concludes its freshman year
with Monday’s two-hour episode -
during which a verdict will be ren
dered in the case of Hollywood play
boy Neil Avedon (Jason Gedrick) - fol
lowed by the season finale at 10 p.m.
Tuesday (where “NYPD Blue” usually
resides) in which all the loose ends
will be knotted.
■ Picket Fences, 10 p.m. Monday,
CBS - It wasn’t that long ago - before

Tenor of the
Pavarotti’s unique instrument
remains a voice to be reckoned with
By John Guinn
Journal Music Critic
This afternoon, barring some glitch, an
overweight Italian tenor will walk on the
stage of a still-being-renovated theater off
Grand Circus Park and send several thou
sand opera fans into orbit.
Luciano Pavarotti, the 60-year-old Kang
of the High Cs, will set his vocal cords
vibrating to cap off a gala concert inaugu
rating the Detroit Opera House, Michigan
Opera Theatre’s new permanent home.
Other singers are also involved in the
concert. None, though, will have the impact
Pavarotti has. He is a verifiable phenome
non, a singer whose presence, like his
girth, seems to defy nature.
What is it that makes the tenor such a
drawing force? How is he able to fill sports
stadiums, sell millions of recordings, get
his name into gossip columns and general
ly achieve the kind of notoriety more com
mon to raspy-voiced rockers than silver-
tongued tenors?
You might think the Pavarotti phenome
non is simply the result of manipulative
hype. You’d be wrong, although the way the
phenomenon is marketed will be studied
by public relations people for years to
come.
Ultimately, Pavarotti’s spectacular fame
is based on two simple facts: He possesses
an astonishing instrument, and he knows
how to use it.
First, the instrument. Pavarotti’s tenor
is instantly recognizable. Like Callas, like
Caruso, like Janis Joplin, he produces a
sound so unique that house pets could
probably identify it after hearing only a
few notes. Few singers possess that
quality.
Pavarotti can’t take credit for the distin
guishing characteristics of his voice, of
course. That’s a gift. But he can take credit
for what he does with it.
He has learned, for example, how vital
clear diction is to successful singing. He
uses the broad vowels, arching accents
and crisp consonants of his native Italian
language to enhance the effect of his voice.
Indeed, he seems to have mastered all
the tricks of the vocal trade: when to scoop
up to a note and when to focus directly on
it, when to inject bright color into his
sound and when to let it pale, when and
by how much to increase or decrease the
volume, how to pace tempos as he
approaches high notes so they seem more

He’s riding into the ‘Sunset’ with an R rating
them, ‘This is a family movie.’ ”
An R rating is not necessarily incom
patible with the concept of a family
movie. But the mini-tempest over
“Sunset Park” sheds light on the
behind-the-scenes, often arcane work
ings of the movie rating system.
Entirely voluntary, the system
nonetheless can affect viewership.
Harris and others involved with
“Sunset Park,” which stars Rhea
Perlman of “Cheers” fame and which
opens next weekend, see their audience
as the same family-oriented movie
goers who made “Hoosiers” and “Cool
Running” hits. An R rating, deserved or
not, can eat into that potential audi
ence.
But then, controversy is nothing new
to the rating system. Begun in 1968,
the system was created by the Motion
Picture Association of America in
response to changes in films and
American society. Prior to that, under
the old Hollywood production code in
force since the 1920s, the majority of
films released today could not have
been made.
The immediate catalyst for change
was the film “Who’s Afraid of Virginia
Woolf?” The movie, for the first time,
wanted to include the words “screw”
and “hump the hostess.” Jack Valenti,
the newly installed president of MPAA,
met with producers and they reached a
compromise. “Screw” would be deleted,
but “hump the hostess” could remain.
But Valenti, who is still MPAA’s pres-

James “Talent” Harris was feeling
abused. His new film, “Sunset Park,”
was about to open, and he and his co-
stars felt stung over the film’s R rating.
After all, the story of an inner-city
high school basketball team shows no
violence and no nudity. Its theme is
pure American values: Teamwork, stay
in school, respect your elders, go to col
lege. What apparently earned the R
rating was the widespread use of black
street slang studded with profanities.
“We got a raw deal in the rating,”
Harris, a stand-up comic appearing in
his first film, said during a publicity
tour in Detroit. “We hope people can
look past that. Wherever we go, what
ever group we speak before, we tell

Hurry to Little Tree before it’s uprooted
Royal Oak’s Little Tree Sushi
Bar is gamely hanging on in
its space in the Washington
Square Building, despite its
pending eviction from the premises.
The 43-seat restaurant has been
given until Aug. 31 to vacate.
Majority stockholder Shep Spencer
hopes to move
the handsome
furnishings into a
storefront just a
couple of blocks
south on
Washington
Street.
Meanwhile, chef
Ei Jen Suzuki is still turning out
sushi and sashimi (with a 10 percent
reduction in prices Sunday through
Thursday) as well as noodle dishes
and other cooked items.
There’s a convoluted story behind
the eviction, but for now, suffice it to
say that the Little Tree looks like the
innocent victim here, in a Catch-22
situation involving the previous ten
ant, Durango Grill; the owners of the
Washington Square Building, who
will open their own restaurant in the
space, and the Michigan Liquor
Control Commission.
The Japanese restaurant has been
in its small quarters in the
Washington Square Building less
than a year. After putting a major
investment in the place, Spencer and
his partners were never able to
straighten out the liquor licensing.
If you’re a Japanese food fancier -
or if you like to support the under
dog, or both - give this place a whirl.
Suzuki’s sushi is memorable and the
Little Tree could use some customers
until it is able to move into a more
hospitable location.
Ferndale’s his oyster
In other Royal Oak news, Tom’s
Oyster Bar will not be expanding into
the adjacent storefront after all. Tom
Brandel has abandoned the project.
So fans will have to continue cram
ming into the tight quarters at 318 S.
Main where there are just 65 seats.
But there’s good
news for Tom’s in
the up-and-coming
Ferndale business *
district. Brandel
will open there
sometime this
year. He won’t
duplicate the
Tom’s Oyster Bar concept. He’ll call
the place the Blue Boat Bar, and it
will be a mini-version of the oyster
bar, with a limited menu and small
kitchen. He also plans to open a Blue
Boat Bar in Harrison Township this
year. Brandel’s excited about coming
into Ferndale, which he sees as an
“artsier” Royal Oak.
Why all the expansion? Brandel
credits his “human resources,” the
staff - and it really is a good one,
including Ray Hanson, Darlene
Peterson, Danny and Kiki Martinez,
Michael Houlihan, Bill Osborn, to
mention just a few - and he says he
wants to give them a chance to move
up in the organization.
Jim Britt moves on
Restaurateur Jim Britt, whose
cafeteria at 151 W. Fort has kept
downtown workers well and creative
ly fed for the past several years, has
sold the business to Nick Delicata, a
31-year-old Troy man who knows he
is taking over a much-loved spot.

A jar of friendship yields bottomless nourishment
Back in the olden days, my life
and routine varied little. I
went to work in a building in
downtown Detroit, the same
building where I’d worked for better
than six years. I saw mostly the same
people each day, and went home to
the same house after doing a day’s
worth of the same thing.
Back in the olden days, he worked
for the same company, but in another
place. He, too, did the same work
every day, and he, too, went home to
the same house.
Back in the olden days, we never
would have known each other,
because there was no reason for our
paths to cross. I write for my bread;
he fixed broken things for his.
So, back in the olden days, I would
never have been lucky enough to
receive a carefully canned quart glass

jar of his homemade friendship.
He thinks it’s a fresh tomato and
basil sauce, rollicking with garlic and
robust with fierce red peppers, some
thing his Sicilian mother has been
making all of his life, and maybe for
most of her own.
He thinks it’s something wonderful
to eat, the reason for growing all
those tomatoes and all that fragrant
basil each summer.
He thinks all that, but he’s only
partly right.
“It’s not a pasta sauce!” he wailed,

when I told him how much we’d liked
it over rotini the night before. “You
use it as a sauce for steaks, or chick
en maybe. Although sometimes I just
dip bread in it.”
“Well, rotini is just curly bread, in a
manner of speaking,” I said, leaving
him shaking his head. Such blasphe
my is untoward to an Italian, to
whom pasta is second only to the
communion wafer as a sacrament.
“Don’t worry,” I said. “We have plen
ty left to eat with something more
correct. I wouldn’t say ‘lots,’ because
I’m not sure anyone could ever have
enough of such a good thing. But I
can see how you might be satisfied
with just sauce and bread, if that
were the sauce in question.”
He reminded me that he had given
me the recipe. I reminded him that I
had put it somewhere safe, some
where so safe that, late next summer,
when the tomatoes are perfectly ripe
and God in his infinite wisdom has
created beautiful basil to be ready at
exactly the same moment, I won’t be
able to find the recipe.
He thought I was kidding, I think.
He roared with laughter, his dark
eyes dancing, his face as bright as a
boater’s beacon on a bad night, and
as welcoming.
“Just call me when you need it,” he
said. “You won’t forget your Teamster
friends when all this strike stuff is
over, will you?”
“Forget you? I don’t see how I could
do that, Joe,” I said. “Who else gives
me friendship in a jar, and thinks it’s
just some kind of sauce?”
He thought I was kidding then, too.
The funny thing is: I wasn’t.

Ramones gear up
for their swan song
For Squirrels
Travis Tooke:
sense of loss
there.”
By Gary Graff
Journal Music Writer
Sometime on Sunday night at the
State Theatre, the Ramones will sing
“Hey! Ho! Let’s go!” And then they’ll
be gone.
After 22 years of gabba gabba hey,
the venerable New York punk quar
tet is calling it quits. It seems the
blitzkrieg isn’t bopping the same
way anymore.
So there’ll be one last swing
through North America, then the
summer’s Lollapalooza tour and
maybe one last blast in Seattle.
That would be an appropriate
place for the Ramones to finish,
since groups from that city not only
absorbed the Ramones spirit but
also acknowledged the influence.
Pearl Jam asked the
Ramones to open shows for
them last year.
Soundgarden hand-picked
the group for this year’s
Lollapalooza lineup.
And, guitarist Johnny
Ramone notes, ending at
the New York punk mecca
CBGB, where the Ramones
made their start, “would
feel like you didn’t get any
where; 22 years later and
you’re still playing the
same place.”
Quite the opposite; the
Ramones’ influence has been felt on
at least two generations of rockers,
from the first wave of British punk
to current hitmakers such as Green
Day. They’ve never had a hit single,
but the call-to-arms “Blitzkrieg Bop”
is as ubiquitous at sporting events
as the stomping rhythm of “We Will
Rock You.”
That impact means quite a bit to
the band. “It’s like when I went to
see the New York Dolls perform, just
before the Ramones formed,” says
Ramone, whose real name is John
Cummings. “I thought, ‘Here’s a
good, fun band playing rock ’n’ roll...I
thought, ‘I can do that, too.’
“I think a lot of kids saw the
Ramones and said the same thing.”
Ramone, who plans to retire from
music to “go to ball games and sit at
home,” says there’s no great drama
behind the group’s decision to dis
band at this point.
“Twenty-two years is long enough,”
he says. “I don’t like seeing bands go
on and on. I think there are a lot of
bands out there that should have
retired a long time ago. Rock ’n’ roll
is supposed to be for young people;
bands should get out at some point.”
The Ramones’ final Detroit head
lining date takes place Sunday at the
State Theatre, 2115 Woodward,
downtown Detroit. Doors open at

Jerry Garcia’s death may have been
rock ’n’ roll’s most notable passing
during 1995, but what happened to
For Squirrels was surely the most
tragic.
On Sept. 8, the group was headed
home to Gainesville, Fla., after play
ing a triumphant New York show
case. In Georgia, a tire blew out and
the van flipped over. Singer Jack
Vigliatura, bassist Bill White and
tour manager Tim Bender were
killed. Guitarist Travis Tooke and
drummer Jack Griego were injured.
Vigliatura had just married his
high school sweetheart. The group’s
major label debut,
“Example,” was due out in
a month.
In tribute to their
friends, Tooke and Griego
put “Example” out any
way. The song “Mighty
K.C.” - a paean to Kurt
Cobain with such forebod
ing lyrics as “Send me off
to the morgue/I’m ready
to be buried” - brought
For Squirrels the notori
ety its members dreamed
of.
Now the duo is soldier
ing on. Tooke has taken over the
singing chores. Griego, who’s still
recovering from a back injury, plays
his drums with assistance from a set
of pulleys. Andy Lord, a high school
friend of Tooke, Vigliatura and
White, is playing bass.
“There was no other way to go,”
says Tooke, 23. “It was either don’t go
on and I sit around feeling sorry for
myself and suicidal and life doesn’t
have anything left, or I can continue
on with my music, my passion and
love, in tribute to my friends.”
But, he says, that doesn’t mean
that going on has been easy. “That
sense of loss is always there,” Tooke
says.
Adds Griego, 27, “If I could have
the old band back, I would in a sec
ond. But I’d rather be doing what
we’re doing right now than nothing
at all. It’s very therapeutic for us,
being out here and not letting what
the four of us worked so hard for so
long just vanish into nothingness.”
For Squirrels perform with The
Nixons and The Hazies Thursday at
St. Andrews Hall, 431 E. Congress,

A clear talent shines
through abstractions
By Marsha Miro
Journal Art Critic
Over time, some of the aspects of
Jane Hammond’s paintings become
clearer. Others remain wonderfully
obscure.
Hammond, who is showing recent
works at the Lemberg Gallery in
Birmingham, continues to use her
limited vocabulary of 276 images,
some found in old advertisements
and brochures, others borrowed from
the high and popular arts of various
cultures. The remainder are invent
ed.
She shuffles them to create a vari
ety of combinations within the limita
tions of her deck. For instance, the
Native American ritual doll figure
from a past work reappears here in
“Puppet & Rose” - without a head
dress, wearing blue gloves and
clutching the hand symbol used in
fortune-telling. The ghostly white
outline of the puppet drifts over a
very large image of a red rose.
The scales in the painting shift
unrealistically. Realities overlap and
time collapses because nothing is in
historical order. One can attempt to
decipher the images, but they are
arranged abstractly, forcing viewers
to interpret from their own refer
ences.
So perhaps “Puppet & Rose” is
making reference to chance and fate
and their relation to the perception of
beauty. The Hollywood pin-up in one
corner and the red rose are accepted
American icons of beauty. Spiritual
beauty is something else, however -
perhaps the Native American culture
that’s also embraced in the piece.
Even the words “Puppet & Rose”
connote a struggle between false and
natural values; the whole work seems
to question how we deal with beauty.
There is probably a personal ques
tioning here for Hammond as well,
stimulated by the process of unravel
ing the relationships of images.
Hammond’s surreal combinations
recall those that Max Ernst made
with commercial engravings in the
1920s. There are also echoes of pop
artists such as Robert Rauschenberg
and Jasper Johns. Art critic Barry
Schwabsky, in his essay for the show,
notes that those connections are typi
cal of Hammond.
Hammond’s work is richly visual
and fresh. She is a master at weaving
all these variables into works that
are clear, luscious and confounding.
Where her earlier works were more
rebuslike, these are made of an
encompassing overall fabric that
knits together glimmering feelings,
unsteadied facts and shifting percep
tions without contrivance. They are
terrific works of art.
Hammond’s exhibit continues
through April 27 at the Lemberg
Gallery, 538 N. Woodward,
Birmingham. Hours are 11-5:30
Tuesday-Friday, 11-5 Saturday.

ride along Eight Mile
A candid
By Liz Stevens
Journal Staff Writer
Mike is homeless, living without
decent shelter and regular meals.
But that hasn’t stopped him from
carving out a place of beauty in the
world.
His personal museum? An under
pass along Eight Mile Road where
he arranges stones into letters,
words and phrases, drawing small
nuggets of appreciation from drivers
stopped at the red light.
Mike plays a leading role - along
with community activists, municipal
officials and academics - in Gary
Glaser and Dave Toorongian’s 32-
minute documentary, “Borderline:
The Story of 8 Mile Road.” It will be
the featured work at the Detroit
Filmmakers Coalition’s monthly
local filmmakers showcase at 7 p.m.
Tuesday at 1515 Broadway, Detroit.
The documentary traces the sta
tus of this much-maligned traffic
vein that separates Detroit from its
suburban neighbors and has come
to symbolize the imaginary divide
between rich and poor, white and
black, promise and despair in the
metro region.
Glaser, who grew up just south of
the Eight Mile border and attended
Henry Ford High School, stage-
managed the “Bill Kennedy At the
Movies” show before moving to Los
Angeles during the late ’70s. There
he worked on the sets of “The
Dating Game,” “Solid Gold” and
“WKRP in Cincinnati.”
“I wasn’t really thrilled with the
shows I was working on,” Glaser
says, so he struck out on his own
and produced his first documentary,
a look at Los Angeles’ homeless
community called “Justiceville.” It
aired on the Discovery Channel and
won an Emmy.
Glaser moved back to Detroit
three years ago and dedicated him
self to the art of the documentary.
“Borderline,” he insists, “is by no
means a love letter to the city of
Detroit.”
Sparsely narrated by WDETs Kim
Hunter, the film explores the issues
of topless bars, neighborhood solidar
ity, church activism and the street’s
history through interviews with a
spectrum of locals.
“This film doesn’t really have a
(moral) job to do, but I think it does
make people feel good about living in
the metropolitan Detroit area,” adds
Glaser, who has profited little from
his vocation and still holds a day job
to pay the bills.
Nevertheless, he says, making doc
umentaries “gives me the freedom to
do what I want... I felt like I was
selling my soul working on The
Newlywed Game’ for Bob Eubanks.”
Tickets are $3. For more informa
tion, call 1515 Broadway at 313-965-
1515.

precarious than they really are.
There’s been some talk lately about
changes in Pavarotti’s singing, how
his voice has grown heavier, how it is
not as flexible as it once was, how it
can sometimes sound frayed around
the edges.
Given the natural attributes of
aging, it’s not surprising that signs of
such deterioration may be showing
up. What is surprising is how much
of the voice remains intact, how
much of its individual beauty contin
ues to thrill listeners.
The big question, of course, is how
long that will continue. Once, finish
ing an interview with him at a local
hotel, I asked Pavarotti how he
would know when he should stop
singing.
“You will tell me,” he joked. “I will
read that you say I should stop
singing, and I will do so.”
Not yet, Luciano. Not yet.

4 R’ ratings are most common
RATINGS, from Page 25
ident today, said later he felt
demeaned by the whole process.
Grown men, he said, ought not to
spend their time arguing about such
things.
So Valenti scrapped the old produc
tion code and championed the volun
tary rating system. Still in effect, the
system involves a Los Angeles-based
ratings board of about 10 members
that reviews each film submitted by
producers. An appeals board can
review the ratings board’s decision
and overturn them.
There is no further
appeal.
After minor revisions
over the years, the cur
rent system offers five
possible ratings: The
squeaky clean G rating;
the almost as inoffen
sive PG; the PG-13 rat
ing, which may contain
some language or situa
tions that parents may
want to shield from
smaller children; R,
which may include pro
fanities, violence, nudity, or other sit
uations; and the most restrictive NC-
17, no one under 17 admitted unless
accompanied by an adult.
“Sunset Park” has lots of company
with its R rating. Last year, there
were 697 films submitted to MPAA
for a rating. Some 65 percent, or 458
movies, got an R rating. Twenty-five
films got the superclean G rating; 99
were rated PG; 111 got a PG-13. Only
four movies received the most
restricted rating of NC-17.
In other words, about two-thirds of
all movies are rated R for profanity,
violence, nudity or other factors.
Although producers and directors
have the right to appeal a rating, few
actually do. Of the nearly 700 films
rated during 1995, only seven
About
two-thirds

for profanity,
violence,
nudity or
other factors.
appeals were filed. A few big-name
films were among them. Martin
Scorsese successfully appealed an
NC-17 rating for his Oscar-nominat
ed “Casino” down to an R. And the
bittersweet story of middle-aged love,
“The Bridges of Madison County,”
successfully appealed an R rating
down to a PG-13.
Sometimes filmmakers will re-edit
a movie, snipping out a profanity
here or a flash of nudity there, to
earn a less restrictive rating.
What annoys producers and actors
such as Harris is that the ratings
board often uses a fair
ly simplistic point sys
tem to decide ratings.
For example, even a
single depiction of drug
use will deny a film
either a G or PG rat
ing. Some profanity is
permissible in a PG-13
film, but more than a
single use of one of the
harsher sexually-
derived expletives will
require an R rating.
Since “Sunset Park”
is filled with the com
mon street talk of its characters (the
movie is set in Brooklyn), profanity is
common. So the movie earned its R,
even though the overall story and
characters are positive and uplifting.
Even so, the film could still find its
audience. An R rating does not bar
teens and children from seeing a
movie; it merely alerts their parents
that some material may not be suit
able for younger viewers.
As Valenti writes in MPAA’s widely
circulated ratings guide, the ratings
system is not meant to be censorship.
“Ratings are meant for parents, no
one else,” he writes.
“If parents don’t care, or if they are
languid in guiding their children’s
moviegoing, the ratings systems
becomes useless.”

A passionate view of a civil war
“Land and Freedom” O
By William Hanson
Journal Movie Critic
This fascinating drama about the
Spanish Civil War from English
director Ken Loach (“Riff-Raff,”
“Hidden Agenda”) is bold, moving
and, in some ranks, controversial.
Loach, a socialist and admirer of
George Orwell’s war reportage
“Homage to Catalonia,” centers the
story around a young unemployed
Liverpudlian who heads to Spain in
1936 to fight for democracy against
Franco’s Fascists. David (Ian Hart,
who was John Lennon in
“Backbeat”) joins a band of interna
tional freedom fighters and Spanish
peasants who limp from bunker to
bunker battling the well-trained
and powerful Fascist military.
Loach explores the infighting
among factions of the anti-Fascist
Republicans and lays much of the
blame for Franco’s triumph on the
heavy hand of Stalinist Russia. So
the film has ruffled feathers in cer
tain leftist circles and among some
veterans who fought on the
Republican side.
Much of the criticism, however, is
reminiscent of the unfair insults
leveled at Oliver Stone for taking
some poetic license in “Nixon.” Both
directors are more interested in
telling greater truths about human
nature and political struggle than
they are in slavishly cataloging his
tory’s minutiae.
So whatever one’s political lean
ings, “Land and Freedom” is a grip
ping and passionate film. The battle
scenes in the brown and pale green
Spanish countryside are so haphaz
ard and understated that they give
the film a believability war movies
routinely lack. There’s a gritty and
bittersweet love story and some
clever foxhole humor to boot. This is
a movie that should not be missed.

Ian Hart (in white shirt) is a hired Spanish freedom fighter in “Land and Freedom.”
The two stars kick up a fair amount
of laughs and warmth, and they’re
fun to watch as a wealthy woman
and her penniless daughter-in-law.
But the story lacks subtlety, and as
a farce, it isn’t farcical enough. The
writers have made Lake’s wine-
spilling character such a social
moron that you want to scream in
disbelief at some of her blunders.
Still, the plot moves along at a
decent clip, and if meat-and-pota-
toes love stories are what you’re
after, dig right in. PG-13. - W.H.
“Celtic Pride” £0 is one of the
worst sports movies ever made, with
something to offend anyone who
isn’t brain-dead. It mires Daniel
Stern and Dan Aykroyd in hopeless
ly stereotyped Irish oaf roles as
rabid Celts fans who kidnap the
other team’s star to give the Celts
an edge in the playoffs. Damon
Wayans scowls a lot as the high-
scoring Utah Jazz hotdog who, we
are asked to believe, undergoes ter
rific character growth while duct-
taped to a chair. All this film has
going for it are shots of the old
Boston Garden, but even these will
convince you only that the wrecking
ball was administered to the wrong
target. PG-13. - Matt Black
“The Celluloid Closet” O is the
most thorough and entertaining doc
umentary yet on the subject of how
Hollywood has shaped images of
homosexuality. As a startling clip of
two men dancing in an early
Edison film reminds us, it’s been
there all the time, but movies have
either been squeamish or stigmatiz
ing. Sissy types of the ’30s give way
to demonized homosexuals of the
postwar era until, finally, the need
to resort to subtext abates in the
face of today’s greater openness to
gays, as talking heads ranging from
Gore Vidal to Tony Curtis remind
us. (Exclusively at the Main Art
Theatre.) R .-M.B.
“The Substitute” £0 This ugly,
violent movie pretends to be about
a substitute teacher who cleans up
an unruly class, but it’s closer in
spirit to Schwarzenegger than “To
Sir With Love.” Tom Berenger plays
the soldier of fortune who takes on
the teen-age drug lords who make
life hell for the good kids. The
school literally becomes a battle
ground, with rival teams of merce
naries blasting away at one anoth
er. The slick action is up to
Hollywood’s standards, which
means it’s even more virulent than
the drugs this movie condemns.

“I’m Non-Union, This Strike Isn’t
My Concern”. Be Aware! The
union wages that are earned in this
city and state are largely spent in this
city and state. If you are still subscrib
ing to those scab papers you are con
tributing to the decline in the delicate
economic balance of this area.
A blow against unions is another nail
in the coffin of workers everywhere.
We represent a larger portion of soci
ety than just our own membership.
Without unions the rich become
richer, the poor become poorer.
Please be responsible and educate
yourself. This strike concerns you, too!!

THE UNITED STATES
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
announces a
PUBLIC MEETING AND
PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD
for the
LOWER ECORSE CREEK SUPERFUND SITE
WYANDOTTE, MICHIGAN
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently completed a Remedial
Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) for the Lower Ecorse Creek Superfund site in Wyan
dotte, Michigan. EPA has prepared a Proposed Plan identifying the preferred alternative,
along with rationale for the preference.
EPA evaluated three alternatives for addressing the soil contamination:
Alternative 1: No Action
Alternative 2: Excavation and Disposal of Shallow Contaminated Soils and
Institutional Controls for Deep Contaminated Soils
Alternative 3: Excavation and Disposal of Shallow and Deep Soils
EPA believes that Alternative 3, Excavation and Disposal of Shallow and Deep Soils,
provides the lowest long-term risk to the community and highest level of protection of
human health and the environment because it involves the off-site removal of all con
taminated soil. In addition, because all soils are removed, the high costs and high level
of efforts associated with administering the institutional controls included in Alternative
2 are avoided.
PUBLIC MEETING
A public meeting has been scheduled to learn more about the site and to discuss the
Proposed Plan:
Wednesday, May 9,1996
7:00 p.m.
City Council Chambers, Wyandotte City Hall
3131 Biddle Avenue, Wyandotte, Michigan
A Comment Period extends from April 30 to May 29, 1996. Comments will be accepted
either orally at the meeting or in writing anytime, with a postmark of May 29, 1996 or
earlier to:
Dave Novak
Community Involvement Coordinator
Office of Public Affairs (P-19J)
U.S. EPA, Region 5
77 West Jackson Boulevard
Chicago, Illinois 60604
(312) 886-9840 or Toll Free: 1-800-621-8431
Comments will also be accepted through one of the following mediums prior to the close of
business May 14,1996: Fax: (312) 353-1155, or Internet: “novak.dave@epamail.epa.gov”
EPA will consider public comments before making a final decision. Based on new informa
tion, EPA may modify its recommendation. The final action will be described in a Record of
Decision, along with a summary of all public comments and EPA’s responses, which will be
available at the information repository.
Copies of the Feasibility Study, Proposed Plan and other documents for the Lower Ecorse
Creek Superfund site are available for public review at the site information repository at
Bacon Memorial Library, 45 Vinewood Avenue, Wyandotte, Michigan 48192. An Ad
ministrative Record file, which contains the information that is the basis for site cleanup
decisions, has been established at the library and the U.S. EPA Region 5 office in Chicago.

Saban: MSU ready to move on after investigation
By Terry Cabell
Journal Sports Writer
EAST LANSING - Michigan State
played its annual Green and White
scrimmage Saturday, just days after
the school released the results of its
internal investigation of charges
brought against the football program
by the NCAA.
The school fired several academic
advisers and forfeited five wins from
the 1994 season. Coach Nick Saban
was not implicated in the charges, but
it’s his program that is affected by the
sanctions. Following is his outlook on
spring drills:
Q. How’s the atmosphere in the
aftermath of the release of the
results of the investigation?
A. Basically, I explained to the team
what the circumstances are, what the
process has been and what it will be.
Our goals and aspirations as a team
should not and cannot be affected by
whatever the circumstances are that
transpire from this investigation.
We’re not going to use it as an excuse
not to be able to do things and we’re
not going to let it be a distraction.
Q. What do you see as the short-
A. I don’t know. My focus is on man
aging the situation that we have
rather than speculating what might
be or could be. Obviously, people used
it in recruiting against us last year. We
had a good recruiting year. Maybe it
hurt us with some kids, but it didn’t
hurt us enough that we couldn’t have
a decent recruiting year. I just think
getting it out and making it public
was best. Speculation is worse. You
have to get it out there and get the
results of it so you can move ahead.
Q. A year ago, you came in and
wanted to change the attitude of

Center Mark West is one of the few Pistons veterans with any
playoff experience, so the team will be looking to him this week.
apology . .. “my actions were unprofessional and wrong.”
The best ever?
Now that the Bulls have won 70 games the arguments
will go on, and on, and on about whether they are the
best team to play in the NBA. Even Rodman said after
Chicago’s 70th victory that “this team wouldn’t have won
70 games 10 years ago.” He’s probably right. The competi
tion level was much higher than the expansion diluted
teams playing now.
Others will argue that the current Bulls are not as good
as the 1971-72 Lakers, who won 69 games - 33 in a row -
or the 66-67 Philadelphia 76ers, who won 68 games. Both
of those teams won the NBA championship. Well, the
Bulls’ season would be considerably diluted if Chicago
doesn’t win the championship this season.
One thing is clear - 70 victories is a considerable
accomplishment. The Bulls must play the teams on their
current schedule. In that respect, they have performed
admirably. So be it.
The Pistons play their final regular-season game at
The Palace tonight and fans will finally know
who Detroit’s opponent will be in the first round
of the playoffs.
Does it really matter? It should be enough for a team
that won 28 games a year ago to reach the playoffs, and
win enough games so it won’t have to play the Chicago
Bulls in the first
round.
It would be fun
if the Pistons
played Indiana
in the first
round. They
probably match
up better against
the Pacers,
minus injured Reggie Miller, than any of the other possi
ble opponents. Nevertheless, as Captain Joe Dumars
pointed out, it’s just nice to be back in the playoffs rather
than sitting home watching the games on television.
“Personally, it’s been tough on me,” said Dumars after
the Pistons clinched a playoff berth for the first time in
three years. “It feels great to be back. When you are los
ing, you keep on questioning yourself. You wonder if you
won’t make the playoffs in your last four or five years in
the league.”
So the opponent isn’t of major consequence except, per
haps, to the opposition. There aren’t many teams that
want to play the Pistons in the first round. Detroit is a
young, relatively inexperienced team that has nothing to
prove and won’t be feeling a lot of pressure.
Coach Doug Collins* has a club that plays solid defense
and creates some nasty matchup problems on offense.
Although Otis Thorpe is the only serious post-up threat,
the Pistons have some excellent shooters in Dumars,
Allan Houston and Terry Mills, and a slashing scorer in
Grant Hill.
Although the Pistons don’t have a top-notch big man, if
they keep the score in the 90s they always have a shot at
winning.
Bill
Halls
Unprofessional and wrong
The NBA must take a serious look at zebra bashing. In
the past few weeks, Dennis Rodman of the Bulls, along
with Nick Van Exel and Magic Johnson of the Lakers
have been suspended for head-butting, shoving or bump
ing officials in league games.
Is the problem the officials or the players? Let’s get
real. Any time a player bumps or touches an official, it’s
the player’s fault. As Johnson said in his much publicized

the players in the spring. What has
been the focus this spring?
A. We came away last year with atti
tude development and consistency in
performance. But the one thing I saw
was immaturity. We didn’t play consis
tently good football until the last three
games of the year. I thought our lack of
poise in the second half of the bowl
game (a 45-26 Independence Bowl loss
to Louisiana State) was a lack of disci
pline from a team standpoint. I don’t
think we’re where we need to be atti-
tude-wise, but I think we’ve made
improvements.
Q. How about improvements on
the field?
A. We made far too many penalties
offensively and we had far too many
turnovers. Defensively, we gave up far
too many big plays last year.
Q. Has a decision bee made on
tailback Duane Goulboume’s sta
tus? Will he get a sixth year of eli
gibility?
A. A decision hasn’t been made total
ly, but it looks like it. We wouldn’t have
practiced him in the spring if we didn’t
think so.
Q. One of your biggest needs this
spring has been finding a quarter
back to replace Tony Banks. Have
you solved that problem?
A. I think Todd Schultz clearly has
been No. 1 from day one. The progress
he has made since we came here to
where he is right now is like night and
day. He’s had a pretty decent spring
and has the ability to be a good quar
terback. (Notre Dame transfer) Gus
Ornstein had a good spring and made
a lot of improvement, but he needs to
be more fundamentally consistent.

Daytona 500 victor Jarrett
has million reasons to win
Mission impossible? Maybe,
but with a million-dollar
bonus at stake, it’s an
assignment Dale Jarrett
will gladly accept.
Jarrett enters next Sunday’s
Winston 500 with the opportunity to
move one step closer to claiming the
Winston Select Million, given to any
driver who wins three of four “crown
jewel” events in the NASCAR Winston
Cup Series.
He took the first step by winning
the Daytona 500. The remaining races
include Sunday at Talladega, Ala., the
fastest on the circuit; Charlotte Motor
Speedway’s Coca-Cola 600 (May 26),
the longest event of the year; and
Darlington (S.C.) Raceway’s Mountain
Dew Southern 500 (Sept. 1), the oldest
on the Winston Cup schedule.
“Very few people win three races in
a season,” said Jarrett, who entered
1996 never having won more than one
race in a year. “There’s probably only
going to be three or four drivers to
win three races this season. Trying to
win three specific races seems next to
impossible.
“It couldn’t be four better tracks for
me. I have ran good at all of them.
But trying to make a car perfect for
1,500 of those 2,100 miles, that’s a
challenge.”
This is Jarrett’s second opportunity
at the bonus. In 1993 he started the
season with a victory in the Daytona
500. He followed that with a pair of
thirds at Talladega and Charlotte, and
a 12th-place finish at Darlington.
Bill Elliott won the million in 1985,
the first season it was offered. The
late Davey Allison came the closest to
claiming the million in 1992 after
winning at Daytona and Talladega.
Allison was leading late in the
Southern 500 and pitted during a cau
tion for rain. The race never resumed,
and Allison finished fifth.
“What Bill and his group did in
1985 was absolutely awesome,”
Jarrett said. “By them doing that,
it gave us all hope of somebody
Joe
Cybulski
doing it again.”
Driving force
Formula 1 drivers aren’t ready to
join the ranks of other major sports
that have gone out on strike, but
there is some grumbling coming from
the union ranks.
The Grand Prix Drivers’ Association
(GPDA) is seeking a bigger role in
Formula 1 affairs. It recently released
a statement to the International
Automobile Federation, the sports
governing body.
“The drivers are convinced that in
motor sport, as in all social, political
and economic areas, it is the responsi
bility of all parties to find a balance
through mutual respect and trust,”
the group said in a statement. “For
example, in the future, the GPDA will
no longer accept a very unfair super
license application form, like the 1996
version.”
This reference was to forms signed
by all the drivers before the season-
opening Australian Grand Prix in
Melbourne on March 10.

Red Wings don’t want Stanley - the song, that is
The Red Wings’ effort to market the
team’s quest for a Stanley Cup isn’t a
big hit with the players.
After Wednesday night’s 4-1 victory
over Winnipeg in Game 1 of the
Western Conference quarterfinals,
players complained about the black
curtain that surrounded the giant octo
pus (called Stanley) in the rafters of
Joe Louis Arena and a song to the beat
of Bow Wow Wow’s early ’80s hit, “I
Want Candy,” called “I Want Stanley.”
Before Game 1, “Stanley” was low
ered and the song was played and
accompanied by a presentation on the
video screen. This happened while both
teams were on the ice.
Wings players -expressed cten'eern
that the situation could motivate the
other team, that it was a distraction
and that they didn’t like the song.
“We just want to play hockey. We
don’t like the sideshow,” said Paul
Coffey. “The octopus and the dark cur
tain causes a dark shadow.”
“That’s taken care of for tomorrow,”
Marketing Director Ted Speers said
Thursday. “The curtain’s gone . . .
Basically it’s (the whole presentation)
entertainment for the fans before the
players take the ice.”
Kris Draper responded to the ques
tion: “I bet you guys really like the
song, don’t you?” with a sarcastic
“Yeah, right” and a shake of his head.

DETROIT SUNDAY JOURNAL
Old hand becomes point man
Ramsey christens
final playoff run
with a flourish
Journal photo by REBECCA COOK
Winnipeg's Keith Tkachuk stuck it to Chris Osgood Wednesday night, but he made the save. Osgood got a 4-0 shutout Friday in Game 2.
As Mike Ramsey was being
interviewed by a group of
reporters in the Detroit lock
er room after Wednesday
night’s 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg
Jets in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup
Playoffs, fellow defenseman Slava
Fetisov strolled by and said: “Every 20
years a miracle happens.”
It was no miracle that reporters
were talking to Ramsey, 35, a member
of the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” Olympic
gold medal team. After all, Ramsey
had two assists in the first-round vic
tory. But that could be considered a
miracle in itself. Ramsey, in his 16th
and last NHL season, is a stay-at-
home, defensive defenseman. The
proof of that is his 345 points in 1,068
career regular season games. He’s
mostly known for blocking shots.
Ramsey did not score in Friday’s 4-0
victory, which gave Detroit a 2-0 lead
in the best-of-seven series.
“All it means is that my dad (in
Minneapolis) will read the paper and
know that I played (by just reading
the summary),” Ramsey said of his
“offensive” outburst. “It’s nice to get
points because I don’t get them often.
It’s a big deal anytime you get points
but I don’t think my game is points.”
Ramsey gave the Wings a boost they
needed. After falling behind 1-0 to the
Jets on a first-period goal by Alexei
Zhamnov, Detroit was continually
frustrated by goalie Nikolai
Khabibulin. He made spectacular
saves on Steve Yzerman (three times),
Darren McCarty (twice) and Igor
Larionov (twice).
The feeling among the Red Wings
was that it would take an “ugly” goal
to tie it. Early in the third period with
less than 20 seconds left in a
Winnipeg penalty, coach Scotty
Bowman put out an unlikely power-
play unit - Ramsey and Bob Rouse on
the points with a line of grinders Kris
Draper, Tim Taylor and Doug Brown.
Bowman said he was just trying to
get a group of fresh players on the ice.
The team’s usual power-play regulars
-Yzerman, Larionov, Sergei Fedorov,
Keith Primeau, Paul Coffey, Nicklas
Lidstrom, Vladimir Konstantinov and
Fetisov - had logged plenty of ice time.
But this was also a group that
would do basic, simple things with the
puck. Such as Ramsey’s decision to
just dump the puck in front of the net
when it came back to him. Taylor, in
the high slot, then just directed it
toward the net. Khabibulin couldn’t
get a grip on it and it bounced off to
the side of the net, where Draper just
swung at it and bounced it back
towards the Winnipeg goal.
Khabibulin didn’t get all of it and
wound up putting it into the net him
self at 2:27, just a second after team
mate Jeff Finley came out of the
penalty box.
“Rouse and myself are going to just
hammer it at the net,” Ramsey said.
“Maybe that’s what he (Bowman)
thought we needed.”
The Wings definitely needed
Draper’s goal. It energized the team
and the Joe Louis Arena crowd. Just
1:39 later, Fetisov put the Wings
ahead for good. Then, just 42 seconds
later it was Ramsey’s turn to collect a
“pretty” assist. As Yzerman swung out
of the left corner with the puck,
Ramsey cut to the net and Yzerman
put the puck right on his stick. It was
a position Ramsey was not very famil
iar with - less than 10 feet in front of
the enemy net with no one between he
and the goaltender.
“He (Khabibulin) came out on me so
quick that everything was thrown off,”
said Ramsey. “I thought about (faking)
but everything got cut off.”
Luckily he heard Greg Johnson, at
the left post, screaming for the puck.
“If Johnny wasn’t there, I don’t
know what I’d have done,” Ramsey
joked.
But Johnson was there and Ramsey
put a pass right on the young for
ward’s stick and the puck was in the
net before anyone could blink an eye.
“I was yelling as loud as I could,”
Johnson laughed. “I don’t know if he
saw me but I think he heard.me.”
But after these playoffs are done,
whether or not the Wings win the
Stanley Cup, Ramsey won’t be heard
of as an NHL player any longer.
“Mostly I feel young,” Ramsey said.
“My mind feels like I can play (longer)
but my body says, ‘no.’ That’s why I
made the decision (to retire after the
playoffs are done).”
But he says it feels good to be a con
tributing member of a team in the twi
light of his NHL career, and the sim
ple, yet effective, way Ramsey plays
the game, that’s not a miracle.
