OPINION

APRIL 22, 2012

Mike moves on

M

ike Karabin has retired after 32 years with the University of Toledo athletic department, most recently serving as the university’s deputy athletic director. Karabin is one of those people who seems to know everybody; I have known him and considered him a friend for 13 years. He was a fi xture in the athletic department and was responsible for many of the additions on campus. He is a terrific fundraiser and the evidence is in the structures he has contributed to. He was a major force behind the $20 million expansion of the Glass Bowl. He is also credited with the Larimer Athletic Complex as well as the Findlay Building. Most recently he was an important mover behind the renovation of Savage Arena. I was one of those who Thomas F.POUNDS thought renovating Savage Arena was crazy, but I was wrong. It is now one of the premier structures in the MAC. Karabin will always have these great accomplishments as part of his legacy at UT. Karabin was also behind some of the scheduling that has brought us great games such as University of Pittsburgh (one of the greatest UT victories ever, against then-No. 9 Pitt), Boise State, Navy, Syracuse and Purdue. He also brought the games to ESPN. I believe that is one of the main reasons UT’s football program is at or near the top of the MAC every year. Karabin played baseball at UT, where he won the MAC batting title his senior year, the first ever at the college to win the batting title. He hit .419 that year, which is fifth best of all-time at UT. He then played for the Chicago Cubs organization for two years and later returned to UT as a coach. He was the head baseball coach for one season in 1982, leading the Rockets to a second-place finish in the MAC. Karabin was honored with induction into the Varsity “T” Hall of Fame in 2007. It is hard to see good people leave and very seldom do they leave with this kind of legacy. He is a good man and a good father. I will miss him at the university and wish him well, but even at 55 years young, I am sure Karabin is not done. I am sure he will do something after his career at UT — we can only hope it is here in Toledo. Good luck, Mike! ✯

CF: Actually it is only short-term memory that goes. Long term I am really good at it, unfortunately. Or, I am as good at it as someone my age would be. You don’t know how much of your memory has been aff ected by age or drug use. It’s like I say, ‘E.C.T., L.S.D. or A.G.E.’ Those are your three choices. TFP: I wanted to ask you about a couple of your movies, the first one being “When Harry Met Sally.” What a tight movie that is with the back-and-forth dialogue. You worked with Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan and Rob Reiner all at the top of their games. Were there a lot of rehearsals to master the script? CF: Well, like you said, it was people at the top of their game, people who know what they are doing and they have done a lot of it. The dialogue it was really well-written and with anything that is well written, you are not going to have a problem with it. If you get a certain type of actor and they are well cast they are going to be able to embellish on it a little bit, if that is allowed. The one scene that was very diffi cult was the four-way scene we did on the phone. We did that in real time. They were all gathered in sets on the other side of the stage and Bruno [Kirby] and I were on one side. They shot it 50-some times and after the 50th time Bruno said, “I want another one.” And I said. “You will be doing that one on your own.” ■ FISHER CONTINUES ON A4

OPINION

A4 ■ TOLEDO FREE PRESS ■ FISHER CONTINUED FROM A3 TFP: As a writer, how critical are you when someone sends you a script to read? Can you just read it and enjoy it or are you wanting to move commas around and make revisions? CF: I can both read it and enjoy it and want to move commas around. If you see something that is kind of derivative, you know. Sometimes it can make you kind of sorry that they didn’t do anything braver but I also know as a writer how difficult that is, so it’s nice to be in the comfort zone of what is expected. TFP: “The Blues Brothers.” Working with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd had to be wild. CF: Everybody was high. Especially John. I was 21 years old and I wasn’t really off and running with the drugs yet but that was a fertile environment for that kind of behavior. TFP: Was it clear then that John had a problem or was it just part of the party at the time? CF: It was clear he had a problem and he involved me. He said, “You and I are alike.” John was like, if it was there, he wanted it. If you could eat it, f**k it, snort it or shoot it John wanted it. That’s not really a good motto. That’s going to end up badly. TFP: Did his comparing himself to you resonate with you at the time of his death? CF: No it didn’t resonate with me, it scared the s**t out of me. I knew he wasn’t wrong. I actually spent a night with John and it was horrible. He started drinking sake and he was knocking things over and by the end of the night, he disappears and there was someone that he ended up doing coke with. I have always stayed so pissed at that person. He came

back to me and he said, “I did coke.” And I said, “John, we can leave right now.” He just looked at me for a minute and said, “No.” TFP: Your next movie is “It’s Christmas, Carol!” That’s your first holiday project since the “Star Wars Holiday Special.” CF: If you go back and look at that it’s not so bad that it’s funny, it’s so bad that it’s boring. TFP: Did you and Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford have an obligation to George Lucas to do the special? CF: We would have signed on to do anything with him. But it did seem bad at the time. TFP: The other thing that came out about that time was the Ringo Starr TV special where he had a look-alike and you were the love interest confused by the two Ringos. CF: I have no recollection of that. TFP: It wasn’t great, either. CF: It sounds awful. TFP: It is an interesting part of the show when you talk about the songs Paul Simon wrote about you. Are you Charlie the Archangel from the song “Crazy Love Vol. II” on “Graceland,” with the lyrics, “Fat Charlie the Archangel files for divorce?” CF: No, that’s Lorne Michaels. I was from the title song, “She’s come back to tell me she’s gone/As if I didn’t know that, as if I didn’t know my own bed/As if I’d never noticed the way she brushed her hair from her forehead.” I feel privileged to be in one of his songs and certainly if the choice was, “Would you read one of my books or listen to one of his songs?” I would listen to him. TFP: Did you do that a lot, brush your hair from your forehead?” CF: (Brushing her hair from her forehead)

APRIL 22, 2012

Yes, just like that. I still do it if it’s down. TFP: You have two iconic images in pop culture, the doughnut-braid hair and the metal bikini. What would the trifecta be? What would be the one additional thing that you would like to put in the Smithsonian to fill out the shelf? CF: Probably the image [from the “Wishful Drinking” book cover] with me looking down, the stoned Princess Leia. TFP: Are you looking forward to seeing yourself on the big screen in 3-D when the original trilogy comes out in 3-D? CF: I am looking forward to doing that. Hyperspace should look cool in 3-D. TFP: If I were to go to your house would I find “Star Wars” everywhere? CF: Yes, you have to look but you would find it. It’s not obvious, except for one thing. On my birthday, George Lucas sent me a painting of me as Princess Leia in a metal bikini. I am sure it’s regifting. Someone gave him that and he was wondering, “Why is that in my house?” so I have it in my backroom now. And I am confused as to what I should ultimately do with it. TFP: You mentioned that George Lucas came to see your show. Did you hold back on the jokes about him? CF: Oh, no, I was worse. I’ve been making fun of that man forever. He invites it; he doesn’t talk a lot. TFP: Your Democratic politics come through pretty strong in the show. Are you a big Obama supporter? CF: I love Obama. TFP: Have you taken any heat for getting into

5HJLVWHUQRZ EHHQWHUHGWRZLQDQL3DG

the politics? That is a different arena from the personal stuff, when you talk about Dick Cheney. CF: I can’t imagine that Cheney is popular. Who donated that heart? He didn’t know where it was going to. TFP: What is your next writing project? CF: I am trying to adapt an earlier book of mine but I want to try to write something that has absolutely nothing to do with me. Fiction, I hope. TFP: Thank you for your time. CF: Thanks for coming and wondering if I have self-loathing. TFP: That’s a fair question. CF: Is it? I’ve never been asked that. TFP: As I said, the things you choose to relive publicly seem to be as punishing as they are therapeutic. CF: If I had self-loathing I wouldn’t talk about it. I make fun of it but it’s not self-loathing. It’s self-acceptance run wild. ✯ Michael S. Miller is editor in chief of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.

TO THE EDITOR, We at the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the American Red Cross wish to thank Toledo Free Press, not only for making us the beneficiary of the April 14 Titanic-themed “A Night To Remember” dinner and ball, but also for the time and effort that was put into ensuring attendees had an evening that felt more like an experience than an event. Planning an evening like “A Night to Remember” is difficult work. It is especially complicated when guided by a theme. Every decision in the process, from the venue and entertainment to the napkin colors and parking arrangements, has to be scrutinized. Everyone who had a hand in planning the evening should be proud of its flawless execution as the musicians were excellent, the setting was perfect, the silent auction items were intriguing, and most importantly, guests had a wonderful time. We are beyond grateful that all of this work was done on our behalf. The money raised from the evening will go toward our local programs and services. Helping families get back on their feet in the wake of a disaster, educating the public on preparedness, connecting military families, and the rest of the services we provide to our community. We follow through on our mission only by the generosity you’ve demonstrated. For that, we thank you. Sincerely, TIM YENRICK Regional CEO American Red Cross

The Toledo Community Foundation helps individuals, families and businesses meet their charitable goals. We are committed to enriching the quality of life for those in our community.

APRIL 22, 2012 ■ GUASTELLA CONTINUED FROM A8 Guastella and his family — wife Kathryn, son Michael, 3, and daughter Bailey, 1 — moved to Maumee from Las Vegas in December. “It’s really nice. It’s a great place to raise kids and it looks like there will be great opportunities to do things in the summertime, which we’re kind of experiencing now,” Guastella said. “My wife is originally from the Midwest, Grand Rapids, Mich., so she’s really happy.”

Passion and drive Casino General Manager Richard St. Jean said he was pleased to recruit a food and beverage director of Guastella’s caliber. “Marc’s passion and drive for the restaurant and hospitality industry has led him on an international career working alongside some of the world’s most knowledgeable and celebrated chefs,” St. Jean wrote in an email to Toledo Free Press. “I expect that his experience in presentation and service will exceed our guests expectations as he introduces his standards of quality and detail to our guests.” Guastella was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and grew up in Cape Town. He started his restaurant career shortly after high school, working as a server at The Cape

RICHARD ST. JEAN Grace, one of South Africa’s leading hotels. He later moved to London and then the United States, quickly rising through the restaurant management ranks to general manager. In 2010, he joined the corporate team at Mina Group, where he oversaw all the Mina restaurants and reported directly to Mina. At the time, there were six restaurants,

including BOURBON STEAK and SALTWATER at the MGM Grand Detroit. By the time he left, there were about 20 eateries. Guastella was also part of the group that came to Detroit in 2007 to help open the two MGM Grand restaurants. Guastella said he loved working with Mina Group, but decided to pursue the Toledo job because of his wife and children. “I was on the road a lot and this just gives an opportunity with my two little ones to kind of settle down in that respect,” Guastella said. “There’s absolutely no animosity there. I have the utmost respect for Michael, his company and his success. It’s a great organization. “Michael’s a phenomenal person. He’s just unbelievably passionate about what he does. He cares deeply about everybody that works in his organization and fosters their development. He’s an incredible person, an incredible culinarian and an unbelievable restaurateur, hence his success.” Guastella said the most important lesson he took from Mina Group is its emphasis on unforgettable service. “There’s a lot of good restaurants, but there’s very few great restaurants,” Guastella said. “It’s an organization that fosters that unbelievable attention to detail and that’s what’s made him a success.”

Four dining options Hollywood Casino Toledo, slated to open in May, will offer four dining options: Final Cut Steak and Seafood, the Skybox Sports Bar, Epic Buffet and Take 2 Grill. “This restaurant [Final Cut] is really going to stand head and shoulders above the competition, and the same thing for the sports bar, the buffet and the grill too,” Guastella said. “We really want every single niche we have to stand apart and for people to want to come back.” Guastella has ambitious goals for the venue, particularly Final Cut, which he hopes can earn a Forbes four-star rating. The designation is rare; there are no Forbes four-star restaurants in Ohio and only one in Michigan — BOURBON STEAK at MGM Grand Detroit. “The goal is to be the benchmark of service, not only in Toledo but in Ohio and really just be the finest restaurant out there,” Guastella said. “We want to be known as a destination. I want going for a great steak to be synonymous with coming to Final Cut, to get into people’s minds that there’s no alternative, for them to say, ‘This is where we go when it’s a special occasion,’ because the service is going to be amazing, the food is going to be amazing and the experience overall is going to be unforgettable.”

■ A9

Final Cut, which will feature prime beef and seafood dishes, will be luxurious, but not pretentious, Guastella said. “It will be an atmosphere where you are completely taken care of from the time you arrive until the time you leave,” Guastella said. “Just an overall luxurious experience from start to finish, but at the same time not at all stuff y. A lot of the time, restaurants that are high-end have a very stuffy label to them. We want guests to feel at ease and just enjoy their experience; we don’t want to intimidate them at all. Partnering great food and great atmosphere is a winning formula.” One of Guastella’s favorite parts of his job is seeing customers satisfied. “When somebody comes to a restaurant like this for a special occasion, the satisfaction you get for just blowing them away, where they leave and say, ‘You know what? That was the best dining experience of my life,’ is incredible,” Guastella said. “There’s not many jobs on a day-to-day basis where you can say you can achieve that and really impact somebody’s life positively every day.” ✯

SPECIAL REPORT: VICTIMS' RIGHTS SURVIVOR NIGHT

A10 ■ TOLEDO FREE PRESS

APRIL 22, 2012

By Caitlin McGlade TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER cmcglade@toledofreepress.com

A collection of leaders from local and state victims’ rights organizations are teaming to educate Toledo’s victims about resources that might lift them from the clutches of hopelessness. Victims’ Rights Survivor Night will begin at 5 p.m. April 25 at the 911 Training Center on Jefferson Avenue. Until 7 p.m., those affected by crimes from rape to homicide to bullying can visit booths hosted by state and local agencies to learn where and how they can seek help. The free event will also feature a performance by the Toledo Youth Choir and presentations by the Victims of Crime Compensation and the Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE). The idea is to make the confusing process of seeking aid more accessible, as well as to reach out to individuals who do not know what programs can help them, said Russ Simpson of Parents of Murdered Children. Simpson and his wife, Pat, lost two of their four children to murder. “In this field, everyone is protecting their little piece of the pie; we want to put down that line, like, ‘I have to protect my program, you have to protect yours,’” said Lynn Carder, program coordinator with the Victim Witness Assistance Program through the prosecutor’s office. “But the bottom line is that we have to provide services to the victims and when you gather everybody together, you’re much more likely to find someone that can help.” By forming a coalition, the groups can guide more traffic to programs that are underutilized. Simpson said a lot of people are unaware that they might qualify for state funding to cover funeral expenses after a homicide. Or they might not realize that the government runs a victim notification program that tracks a perpetrator’s movements through the different

steps of the legal processes. VINE alerts the victim when that perpetrator moves to different facilities or is up for parole, among other actions. “So many people fall through the cracks,” Simpson said. Falling through the cracks is easy if there are no formal charges made or if the victim’s aggressor is not indicted by a grand jury, never found or if the crime is a misdemeanor. Victims in these situations don’t end up in the system that puts them

in touch with Carder’s program, so she is unable to educate them about their options, she said. Events like Survivor Night helps to fill those cracks. “Come on down and ask for services. It doesn’t make any difference whether the crime happened 15 years ago — there are people out there who haven’t seen help for 10 years,” Simpson said. Cindy Dugan lost her son nearly four years ago. Matthew, known as a gentle and loving jokester with a deep,

contagious laugh, was shot in 2008 at a BP station in Toledo. He was the store clerk at the time. Her son’s killer Anthony Belton was sentenced to death this month. Dugan uses VINE to easily track developments surrounding the convicted man. She also had the help of victim advocates during the trial. “It would have been a lot more frightening without that and I don’t think I would have been able to carry on for as long as I did,” she said. “I

would have felt very overwhelmed and very lost in the whole process.” Victims’ Rights Survivor Night attempts to reach out to those who haven’t reported their crimes. She said she understands why people are intimidated by the justice system. “All I can say is for people to be patient and strong,” she said. “It’s endurance — one day at a time. That’s the way we did it. We thought, ‘Oh, this would be the last day we go to court month after month after year after year.” ✯

She described it as a gray period of her life, a period when she scrutinized her friends, searching their eyes for contempt. A period when box cutters and hedge clippers and X-ACTO knives climbed from the drawers of the art room and crept into her nightmares. She was in the sixth grade. “A lot of light was sucked away” she said. Now, Ruthanne Johnson is in the seventh grade. Her eyes, behind rounded glasses, drop to her lap as she reflects on the days following the heavy wrecking ball that nearly knocked her down. But the wrecking ball — which took the form of of a number of bullies at her her school — did not succeed. Her sullen gaze lasts only a few seconds before her eyes shift upward and a broad grin spreads across her face. She drops her hands low to the ground and explains that back then, during that gray period, she was down there. Then she raised her arms high over her head and says, “Now, I’m up here.” ■ BULLYING CONTINUES ON A12

■ BULLYING CONTINUED FROM A11 She and her parents have asked the media not to print the details of events that temporarily broke her apart. She had been bullied before, but the various name calling jabs she endured in years prior barely compared to what her friends and acquaintances did to her last year. She feared for her safety.

The Shift Ruthanne said she leaned on her family to gain her strength back. She stood on the shoulders of supporters at church. She took walks in her backyard. She even found comfort in an abandoned baby raccoon that she nursed back to health. Lady Gaga empowered her to use her voice. She later met Lady Gaga through Oprah Winfrey at the kickoff of Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation at Harvard University. Ruthanne’s mother Becky said Ruthanne’s school, Toledo School for the Arts, handled the case well and has become a strong support system for Ruthanne. But she added that she thinks some schools seem fearful to admit bullying happens. “We’ve got to shift the paradigm and say it’s OK that it happens; what isn’t OK is that you don’t have a program in place to try to teach these kids tolerance and empathy and re-

SPECIAL REPORT: VICTIMS' RIGHTS SURVIVOR NIGHT spect for one another,” Becky said. “That you don’t have a proactive plan in place to teach these kids what they’re obviously not learning, that you don’t have something in place that says ‘You have people to talk to and you have resources.’” Not for schools in Wood County. Greg Bonnell leads the Safe School Healthy Initiative program for the nine school districts in the county. Both he and Ruthanne will talk about bullying at Victims’ Survivor Night on April 25. This is the first year that the event has included a program on bullying. Russ Simpson, of Parents of Murdered Children, said the decision followed a number of discussions about recent bully-prompted suicides that shook the national news last spring. Bonnell will host a booth with information about the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, an initiative started in Norway that Bonnell now implements in 24 Wood County schools. The program operates on a five-year grant that funds other school safety programs as well. Last spring, about 4,970 male and 4,860 female students in Wood County schools responded to a survey about the prevalence of bullying. Nearly 27 percent reported having been victimized at least once within the past 30 days. About 94 percent responded that they

felt safe at school while about 13 percent stated that they had gotten into a physical fight within the past 12 months. The initiative has since hosted workshops that train teachers and staff to identify the victims, bullies and bystanders. One of the components includes teachers and students having weekly discussions about how to create a safe environment by analyzing why fights break out or what leads to student altercations. “We’ve finally turned the corner with people becoming more sensitive and more compassionate and it’s a civil rights, an individual rights kind of an issue,” Bonnell said. “I was a principal and a teacher for 40 years and I spoke out against it and I had staff members that would tell me the typical, ‘Oh, that’s part of growing up, boys will be boys and we can’t do anything about it.”’ He said school leaders might be reluctant to address bullying when the families of the bullies have been rooted in that particular school district or private school for years.

Highlights of the year More than 1,000 families participated in the Early Intervention program. In Early Intervention, we help parents learn more about their childʼs abilities, make decisions about goals for their children, and discover ways to encourage their childʼs growth and development. We also assisted another 1,000 families with children ranging in age from pre-school to the difficult transitional years as individuals move from school days to adult life. The Board of DD provides financial support for residential services for more than 1450 individuals on Medicaid Waivers. More than 300 people are considered in priority categories on a waiting list for Medicaid support. These would include individuals with intense needs or individuals living with an aged caregiver.

A look ahead Our Mission Statement identifies that we exist to assure that all individuals with developmental disabilities have the same opportunities as all other citizens. And, we will create possibilities and activities that further this ideal. We believe a community is not a full community until, and unless, it includes all citizens. As we carry out our Mission you will hear us talk about helping all individuals connect to their community. This includes creating more inclusive employment, housing, socialization, recreation, education, and other meaningful opportunities for all individuals supported by the Board regardless of need. Your Board of DD presently provides services and supports for approximately 4,000 individuals. Another 90 individuals, graduating from public school this year, are eligible for services. But, today, we face many of the same financial pressures that all other organizations are facing – diminishing revenues and increasing expenses. We are going to be facing some challenges that will force us to think outside the box.

The Board helped organize an advocacy coalition to help educate the community, civic leaders, and legislators about developmental disabilities and the importance of efforts to enhance the quality of life for persons served by the Board. The aging adult services center on Telegraph Road closed as we opened two additional neighborhood locations to help individuals connect more with their community and to experience citizenship as everyone else. A stronger emphasis was placed on securing opportunities in community-based employment. We are helping individuals discover areas in which they have interest and passion to increase the chances of success on the job. The Board increased its support to the more than 300 community-based Medicaid service providers in Lucas County in certification procedures, monitoring and training.

2011 Revenue

Local Taxes 63% Federal Funds 19% State Funds 17% Other 1% TOTAL $59.2 million

Our greatest difficulty has been in accurately projecting our revenue. For example: we receive less in property tax revenue now than we projected during the 2008 levy campaign; state funding has been reduced and that trend is likely to continue; the Tangible Personal Property Tax is being phased out; and funding from Medicaid will decline.

2011 Expenditures

Our pledge is to continue to look at every expenditure to ensure each is in keeping with our Mission, is cost-effective, and is efficient. As we develop our long-range spending plan, we will not forget our commitment to high levels of service. It is my intent to continue to provide information in an ongoing pattern.

People write to Ruthanne to tell her that bullying had once pushed them to drug addiction, gave them suicidal thoughts or even triggered attempts. Ruthanne said she is often asked about whether one should embrace his or her sexuality. Becky Johnson said she was shocked by the results of a survey taken when her daughter attended the “Born This Way Foundation” kickoff. Attendants responded to questions by clicking a button at their seats. Becky said that more than 75 percent of those surveyed said they had one person, if any, to talk to for support. Becky remembered feeling blessed that her family was so close and that Ruthanne could turn to a support base for help. But then she wondered just how often even loving parents of preteen kids might become part of the problem. She described a typical scene when the child comes home after a long day of school and the parents start haranguing him or her for leaving shoes in the middle of the hallway, leaving the bathroom a mess or for missing homework assignments. “So they think, ‘My parents are always yelling at me, they’re always disappointed in me, ‘I’m always in trouble,’” Johnson said. “They feel that at this age, and so they can feel alone even if they’re not.” Ruthanne admits to having assumed the bully role before. She has also been a bystander. Now she wants to provoke bystanders to act. Bonnell said his goal, too, is to empower the bystanders. The Olweus program has apparently influenced the bystanders before. About 3,400 students in Pennsylvania high schools who participated in the program between 2008 — 2010 were surveyed about its impact. The results charted a 41 percent drop in the number of kids who reported being bullied. There was a 33 percent decrease in the number of students who said they would watch their peers be bullied. “It’s like fish swimming in the sea. You have your sharks, you have your school of fish and you have the pretty rainbow fish at the top and the sharks are going to try to get through to the school of fish and of course they will because they are going to scare them and get to the other fish,” Ruthanne said. “Being in the school of fish is a lot easier because you’re hiding in your little huddle and there’s power in numbers.” ✯

Victims of underreported crimes sought By Caitlin McGlade

Victim blaming

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER cmcglade@toledofreepress.com

She blamed herself. She was 18. She was at a friend’s house drinking beer. She started getting so tired she could barely keep her eyes open. She remembered her friend leaving the room with a partner, leaving her alone with a man she hardly knew. Then, nothing. She awoke the next morning naked. In bed next to the man she hardly knew. Fumbling to get dressed and still feeling woozy, she fled the room before he awoke. She never saw him again. But she hasn’t completely recovered nine years later. She doesn’t think victims really ever do. Days later, her so-called friend approached her and admitted she had drugged her drink. She was too uptight about men, her friend told her, so this friend figured she’d make things a little easier. Sharon (not her real name — Toledo Free Press does not identify rape or sexual assault victims) was “uptight about men” because she was molested as a child.

Even still, Sharon said she fell victim not only to a man, but to her own self-doubt. “Victim blaming — it is a huge reason why victims do not come forward and it starts long before the victim goes to court,” said Deborah Stoll, director of the YWCA H.O.P.E. Center. “Many people believe and accept the myths of rape. We accept as truth that somehow the victim is responsible for what happens to her; that she shouldn’t be out at night, shouldn’t be drinking, she shouldn’t flirt, she shouldn’t be wearing certain kinds of clothing.” Fearing that type of reaction, Sharon didn’t talk to her friends or family. She did not report the rape to the police. She worried that she would get in trouble for underage drinking. “At the time, I didn’t completely understand that it was rape,” she said. “I felt like I had that drink, I wasn’t able to say no, so if I didn’t say no was that really rape? In my mind, that was the process I was going through. It took me a while to come to the con-

Victim blaming — it is a huge reason why victims do not come forward and it starts long before the victim goes to court. Many people believe and accept the myths of rape.”

Reporting a rape is intimidating, Sharon said. There’s the courtroom experience, in which the defense sometimes alleges a victim’s history of flirting or promiscuity or blurs the line as to whether the victim provoked sexual activity between herself or gave tacit consent to the alleged rapist. And prior to that, victims fear being charged with falsifying a police report if his or her story has any holes or discrepancies, Sharon said. Fifty-four percent of sexual assaults are not reported to the police. And 97 percent of rapists will never go to jail, according to the National Crime Victimization Survey. Nationally, nine out of 100 rapes end up in prosecution. According to the City of Toledo Police Department’s 2010 Annual Report, 140 rapes were reported in 2010. ■ RAPE CONTINUES ON A15

clusion that what happened to me wasn’t my fault.” It took nearly fi ve years. One of Sharon’s friends had a similar experience and came to her to talk. Sharon found herself repeating to her friend that it wasn’t her fault. That she shouldn’t feel guilty. That she was a victim. And then it clicked. “If I feel this way about her then why am I so hard on myself?”

SPOTLIGHT #1: Earth Day, which is celebrated annually on April 22, is a great time to commit to protecting the environment by saving energy. Did you know that over five million commercial and industrial facilities in the U.S. have a combined energy cost of $202.3 billion with approximately 30 percent of their energy consumption used inefficiently or unnecessarily? If every business improved their energy efficiency by only 10 percent, it would save $20 billion annually. Additionally, greenhouse gas emissions would reduce by 10 percent which equates to about 30 million vehicles – roughly the total number of vehicles registered in Illinois, New York, Ohio and Texas combined! This Earth Day, take the time to reflect on how your business can protect the environment by reducing energy consumption and costs. BetterBuildings Northwest Ohio offers attractive financing for projects that focus on conserving energy and generating savings through energy efficiency equipment. In many buildings, energy savings of 20 percent or more is achievable. Owners of virtually every type of building could be eligible for low-cost financing to pay for high efficiency improvements to their facilities and building systems.

That was down from 165 the year prior. The clearance rate in 2010 was reported at 34.3 percent, down from 37.6 percent the year before. Sharon started volunteering at the H.O.P.E. Center a few years ago. She said she wished she would have used some of the services following her incident but that she feared to come forward. The center will participate in the Victims’ Rights Survivor Night on April 25 with the goal to reach out to more men and women who have yet to seek aid. The H.O.P.E. Center has a 24hour crisis line, often used by individuals who have been raped in the past and are facing the depression, the insomnia and eating disorders after the assault. The organization also has a program that sends an advocate to emergency rooms to talk to victims who share what their options are if they want to report to the police.

The center also has support groups for the victims. There are about 160 victims a year.

Misconceptions Sharon grimaces when thinking about the common perception that rape victims are typically accosted by “that guy in the bushes” or in a “dark alley.” Her assailant was an acquaintance. About two-thirds of rape victims across the country also know their aggressor, according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network. Stoll has a theory as to why misconceptions about rape still exist despite the data. “We believe them for self protection; if we say we can protect ourselves by not going out at night or watching where we park then we feel safer,” Stoll said. “And I think it also is why we point fingers at victims and we look for things that they did wrong so we can avoid those pitfalls.” ✯

April 22 Yell & Tell rally places focus on child abuse By Brigitta Burks TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER news@toledofreepress.com

When Yell & Tell: Stop Child Abuse Now, Inc. had its first rally in 2004, founder Pamela Crabtree wasn’t sure it’d ever have another. However, years later, the organization is planning its ninth rally. “We’re not going anywhere. We’re not a threat to any of the big guys. We want to work in concert,” Crabtree said. Her group will have its ninth annual Yell & Tell: Stop Child Abuse Now Rally on April 22 at the Walbridge Park Shelter House. April is also National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The first rally took place in Washington, D.C., and due to high costs, Crabtree wasn’t positive it would happen again. At her family’s encouragement, however, she brought the rally to Toledo where it has flourished. Throughout the years, keynote speakers have included Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur and State Rep. Teresa Fedor. “Each year, since 2005, we have grown in stature and respect,” Crabtree said. This year, University of Toledo head football coach Matt Campbell will give the keynote speech and Becky Shock of 93.5 WRQN will emcee the CAMPBELL rally. For entertainment, the Distinguished Clown Corps and soloist Amy Gibson are set to perform. Several local groups including Lucas County Children Services, Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center and Mercy Health Partners will be on site with more information. In addition, the Lucas County Sheriff ’s Office will provide fingerprinting of children and give parents the records, Crabtree said. A silent auction gives eventgoers a chance to bid on Toledo Mud Hens tickets, car services and other prizes. Children will also receive a coloring book in English or Spanish that outlines inappropriate touching. Crabtree, a survivor of abuse, was inspired to start her group after an experience on an Internet message board that she frequented with other survivors. The message board would occasionally get posts from young people who said they were

being abused. Crabtree knew she had to do something. “I got to the point where I posted a message where I said, ‘We’ve got to do more. We need to walk the walk,’” she said. “We have to tell [the children] to yell immediately. They have to yell and tell.” Crabtree did not come forward with her story until she was in her mid-40s. “I did not feel comfortable telling anyone because I thought I had done something dirty. I was oblivious to the fact I was a victim of a crime,” she said. Crabtree also wrote a book based on her experiences “The Gift of Hurt,” available at www.pamelacrabtree.com. “I know now of the importance of survivors, be it boys or girls, to come forth immediately,” Crabtree said, adding that some survivors can become depressed or turn to substance abuse so getting help is crucial. Society should work toward ending child abuse and make sure to report cases of suspected abuse, Crabtree said. The average amount a family pays in taxes because of child abuse is $1,460 annually, she added. “If you don’t want to go strictly for the compassionate side of helping kids because you’re afraid to report the abuser … Well, then look at the figure that’s taken out of your budget each year,” Crabtree said. Some people don’t report suspected child abuse because they fear separating families, which is a misguided notion, Crabtree said. “I can tell you that the police, Lucas County Children Services or any other child protection order, they don’t want to go in there and pull that child out; they want to help that child,” she said. In 2011, Lucas County Children Services received 4,148 referrals of suspected child abuse involving 6,046 children. The agency learned that 587 area children were abused or neglected. Thirty-two percent of children served stayed in their own homes, 31 percent lived with a relative, 32 percent were placed in foster care and 5 percent went to a group home or private institution. Crabtree also recommended that guardians keep open lines of communication so children feel comfortable talking to them. Parents and adults should also be careful to observe signs of child abuse such as changes in sleep patterns or even pregnancy. In addition, parents should be certain it is safe to leave children with the parent’s boyfriend or girlfriend before doing so.

“Once we can protect our children, the ripple effect will be mammoth and we can stop child abuse, that’s something we do have

The

control of,” Crabtree said. The free rally is 1 p.m. April 22 at the Walbridge Park Shelter House on Broadway Street, across from the

Toledo Zoo. For more information or to donate, visit www.yelltell.org. To report a case of suspected child abuse, call (419) 213-CARE. ✯

PEOPLE

By Sarah Ottney TOLEDO FREE PRESS SPECIAL SECTIONS EDITOR sottney@toledofreepress.com

Barbara “Bobbie” John paused for nearly a minute when asked to recall her favorite memory of Dick Clark. The 86-year-old Toledo woman was a personal friend to Clark for more than 50 years, having worked on three of his shows, including a Saturday night version of “American Bandstand” in New York City. She also worked on his music show “Where the Action Is” and created a music show called “Swingin’ Country” that he produced. Clark died April 18 of a heart attack at a Santa Monica, Calif., hospital, a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure, according to his spokesman. He was 82. Her favorite memory, she finally decided, was when she once called Clark, years after they had last spoken, asking for some old TV clips for a project she was working on. “I hadn’t seen him in at least 10 years, but it was like we had talked two days before,” John said. “It wasn’t like, ‘I vaguely remember you.’ There was no hesitation. He said, ‘Sure, come on out. Anything in the library is yours.’ That to me personified him.” John also treasures a letter she received from Clark in 2010 in response to a package of memorabilia she sent to him. “I wrote quite a long letter reminiscing with him and he answered back,” John said. “His handwriting is wiggly, but he did it. It’s a lovely letter. The fact that just two years ago, he took the time to answer my letter and we’ve been in touch. That’s something. That’s a treasure.” The typewritten letter with a hand-

written signature reads: “It was great to hear from you, Bobbie. Thank you so much for sending along the script, album cover, credit crawl from ‘Swingin’ Country’ and picture of Debbie [her daughter]. You sure brought back a flood of memories! Thanks once again. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. Sincerely, Dick Clark.”

America’s oldest teenager Known for his youthful appearance, Clark produced and hosted a number of television shows, most famously “American Bandstand,” which aired for more than three decades starting in the early 1950s. He also produced and hosted the year-end countdown from Times Square on “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” a role he continued in part even after suffering a massive stroke in 2004 that affected his ability to speak and walk. Clark’s handpicked successor, Ryan Seacrest, became the main host. Among John’s other “treasures” from her time with Clark are a typewritten script from one of the early New York City shows. Clark hosted “American Bandstand” five days a week in Philadelphia and then filmed a Saturday night show at The Little Theater off Times Square in New York, officially called “The Dick Clark Saturday Night Beech-Nut Show” after its sponsor, Beech-Nut Gum. John served as assistant to the producer, typing scripts and song lyrics for ABC to approve, as well as prepping the performers. “Tony Mammarella booked the talent, but I had to make them presentable for TV,” John said. “They were all unknowns. I took Connie Francis and her hovering father shopping to buy her first formal to wear on the

nighttime bandstand. I took Frankie Avalon shopping and tried to pick his brain about what looked good to him. I was the one who ended up deciding on white shoes and V-neck sweaters.”

Seeking fortune A graduate of Libbey High School and Bowling Green State

University, John went to New York City to “seek her fortune” several years after getting a divorce. She had been living in St. Louis, working as a writer and producer at a local radio and television station to support her two daughters. After five years there, John left her daughters with her mother in Ohio

and moved to New York City. Unable to find a job right away, she lived in a YWCA dorm room and sold jewelry at the Metropolitan Museum of Art before catching her big break — an interview with Charles Reeves, executive producer of Clark’s Saturday night show. ■ CLARK CONTINUES ON A19

â&#x2013; CLARKCONTINUED FROM A18 She met Clark for the first time when she and producer Louis Heyward went to Philadelphia to watch â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Bandstand.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about pop music and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t either. Neither one of us really knew how we got hired,â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better see what â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bandstandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was all about. So he took me on a train trip to Philadelphia and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time I met Dick.â&#x20AC;? John said she remembers Clark as kind, generous and honest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a gentleman,â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was very undemanding. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hover over your shoulder or make many suggestions or say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He hired people because he believed they knew how to do the job. I have tremendous respect for him.â&#x20AC;? After leaving the Saturday night show, John developed game shows with actor, comedian and ventriloquist Paul Winchell. However, their work was halted due to the payola scandal, which shut down production at major networks, so John moved to California, where there was an opportunity to air the shows on an independent station unaffected by the scandal. Soon after, Clark moved to California as well. He wanted to get into game shows, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He asked people all over Hollywood, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How do you learn to do this?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and three different people told him to talk to me,â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pro-

ducing [country music show] â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Melody Ranchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for Gene Autry at a local station in LA and Dick hired me away from that.â&#x20AC;? Although Clark later got into game shows, he and John started working together on a music show called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where the Action Is.â&#x20AC;? John was the talent coordinator, booking performers, scouting locations and deciding when songs would air. When Clark decided his next project would be a show featuring country music, he asked John to develop a concept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All these reports that say he stayed current, he stayed ahead of the times, they are very true. He knew country music was going to happen, so I created a show called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Swinginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Country,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was typical Dick Clark. He sold the show [to NBC in New York] and then came back and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, what are we gonna do?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So we built the show.â&#x20AC;? The show featured Rusty Draper as host and Roy Clark as band leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember how I found Rusty. He was working at a country club in Lincoln, Neb.,â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roy Clark should have been host. The network turned him down, but I talked his manager into letting him come on the show as band leader. That was his introduction on national television and in four weeks he really was the star. That was the kickoff of his major career.â&#x20AC;? Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connections to country music were solidifed when she served as Johnny Cashâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager for seven years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swinginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Countryâ&#x20AC;? was credited

as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Created by Dick Clark and Barbara John.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a big fight with Dick about it,â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said my name should be first. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m better known.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why my name should be first, so I get to be better known.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? John sued Clark over it; his name stayed first, but he gave her $100, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He and I have laughed about it since,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Staying in touch John periodically stayed in touch with Clark after the end of their working days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard he still came to the office every day, even after his stroke,â&#x20AC;? John said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He kept his finger on the pulse of everything.â&#x20AC;? On the evening of April 18, John watched â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Idol,â&#x20AC;? where host Seacrest offered a short tribute to his mentor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could tell Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face was just tight. That had to be the most difficult show he ever did. Dick signed off every show he ever did with a salute and a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;So longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Ryan Seacrest did. He ended with the salute and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;So long, boss,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? John said, her voice cracking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cry when I heard the news. I wrote both my girls immediately and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sad. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to suffer anymore.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;On all three shows, I felt I worked with him, not for him. He never came on as, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am the boss.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I feel privileged to have worked with him.â&#x20AC;? â&#x153;Ż

‘Track meet’ set to commemorate, extend aid to teachers and students By Caitlin McGlade TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER cmcglade@toledofreepress.com

After having rushed to countless scenes to help people in the snares of tragedy, two Toledo-area residents became victims. Charlie Adair, 45, and Ron Lumbrezer, 64, were both struck by cars and killed last year. Adair, a volunteer firefighter, had stopped to assist crews in a car crash Oct. 28 when a passing vehicle collided into her. Lumbrezer was hit Jan. 11, 2011 while he was crossing the road in front of his house. Lumbrezer’s son, R.J., and Adair’s husband, Craig, planned a community track meet April 29 at Holy Trinity School. Tickets are $5, or 5 for $20, for a full day of dashes, runs, relays and mother/daughter and father/ son competitions. There will be tug of war, baseball throwing and hitting competitions, a corn hole tournament and a foul shooting contest. Various fire departments will also play a tug of war for donations to their department and the Charlie Adair and Ron Lumbrezer Memorial Fund. The Fulton County Sheriff ’s Department will attend to fingerprint kids and the North Star BHP Steel company will discuss safety and demonstrate to children the differences between candy and medicine. “It’s not just a track meet,” Craig Adair said. “It’s more a family get-together and have fun day and that’s what she would always want to do.” Following Adair’s love for children and involvement

with the Holy Trinity, the memorial fund will be split up among scholarships for students and teachers. Present or future students who need financial help to attend the school will be eligible for scholarships from 75 percent of the memorial fund. The other 25 percent will go toward a teacher’s assistance fund, R.J. Lumbrezer said. Adair taught sixth grade, coached volleyball and helped struggling kids get through their homework in tutoring sessions. She had started talking about wanting to become a volunteer firefighter in 2001. Always known for getting things done, Adair made it happen a few years later. She was a volunteer firefighter for about six years, Craig said. “If there was more of her in the world it would be a lot better place,” he said. Lumbrezer also had a history of serving. He was in the National Guard and also the Metamora Fire Department years ago. He then worked in the insurance business for more than 40 years, starting with Prudential and later owning and operating Lumbrezer-Malone Insurance Agency until 2008. He served musical tastes too. Lumbrezer played guitar in his band Sound Garden for 25 years. The group played covers of many genres, including country, pop and rock, for weddings and other formal events. They also played for square dancers. R.J. said the funeral was packed, with a two-and-a-halfhour wait to see the casket. “He was very well-liked,” he said. “He was very good with people and it didn’t matter who you are, Dad could identify with you regardless of social differences on any end of the scale.” ✯

YOUR TAROTGRAM AND HOROSCOPE

APR. 22-28, 2012

Events: 1st - 2nd quarter Moon Aries (March 21-April 19)

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Great renewal and revitalization is possible as the week begins. Energy levels are high, but keep your facts straight. Errors or secrets are revealed midweek. Sustained effort yields a bumper crop after Thursday. Celebrations unite friends over the weekend.

Others take actions that change their condition and status. Some of this is surprising, but other changes are inevitable. If someone has been showing only what they want you to see, the missing bits become visible by midweek. After Thursday its time to cross a bridge of your own.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Your immense power is gathered and focused on specific outcomes this week. Gifts and favors are given and received. Steer clear of other peoples’ battles midweek. By maintaining focus and determination, you accomplish whatever you set out to do.

This is a powerful 28-day cycle for you. Critical events and choices can bring about substantial changes. You apply tremendous energy into improving results and outcomes. Accept social invitations; mingling opens the door to meeting people important to your future.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Your focus is split. One area shows promising developments and positive momentum. Another area holds hidden dangers like quicksand. Some are revealed midweek. Social delights beckon as the weekend arrives. A hidden talent or new friend may be discovered.

Completed work is ready to go into the world and reap rewards. New ambitions and possibilities are emerging. Be true to your vision of the future. A special favor or bonus appears Thursday, and the weekend offers wonderful entertainments and gatherings.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Mixed influences surround you. Benefits flow from sustained efforts and through loved ones. Yet there may be troubling situations shared by people who confide in you. Over the weekend, special tributes honor singular efforts. Respect and trust are paramount.

Surges of self awareness and inner truth are a huge catalyst. You’re able to drive hard to turn visions into reality this week. By midweek there are reminders that intimate and family situations benefit from power shared, not power over. Be considerate.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

This is a great week to inspect personal property to upgrade or replace what’s broken. Earnings stabilize or improve. If someone throws a curveball Wednesday, you are apt to swat it out of the way. A person with an unusual job or background makes a splash after Friday.

Luck and good news pop up as the week starts. Your ability to communicate and harness your network brings amazing results. Physical limitations may slow you down midweek. Benefits from women flow after Thursday, and the end of a long labor is in sight.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Frustrations or delays evaporate this week. Major obstacles are overcome as the week begins; difficult tasks become easy. If someone is struggling, be patient. New facts or discoveries emerge and change the big picture. New knowledge remolds the shape of decisions.

The week begins with surprises. New faces and new places fulfill secret wishes. Some decision is surrounded with misgivings. Push forward and make course corrections as needed. Act as a facilitator and make introductions; these will bear fruit down the road.

TDC Companies is proud to promote The Behavior Gap, written by Carl Richards, and The Founders’ Key, authored by Dr. Larry Arnn. Both are very important books for two very different reasons. One talks about the importance of maintaining freedom and independence in our country, while the other speaks to the importance of creating individual financial independence. One aligns itself with the investment philosophy of our firm, while the other aligns itself with the fundamental values of the United States Constitution.

Both authors are friends of our firm, and in the coming months, TDC will share excerpts from these two pieces highlighting their key concepts. During these challenging times, these two books get to the heart of what is most important in the lives of the every day American: a longterm financial future, and the preservation of the Constitution of the United States.
