#25622 - 04/10/02 02:01 AM I just retracted a $500,000 donation

NOTE: Reason being I got a one-liner in the local newspaper. I requested the paper do an article about the incest I suffered during childhood. The paper would'nt publish it. Wer'nt interested. Too messy. Might upset folks. So our community can kiss one half million dollars goodbye. It'd be nice if a few victims of childhood sexual molestation emailed the newspaper. George Stewart did the article. Jill Leach is head honchess there. Here's her email address

Hi Fred! Here's the story. Please let me know if it's OK with you. I think
it's innocuous. Thanks a bunch. jill
Community supports Boys and Girls Club

The Tustin News

As a result of a Tustin News story about the loss in state funds
threatening several youth programs, the community is coming to the aid of
the Boys and Girls Club of Tustin.
The club recently lost $76,000 in anticipated state funds. That, combined
with a clerical error that prevented the application for Community
Development Block Grant funds from getting to the city in time, means the
club has lost $101,000.
Most affected will be innovative programs for at-risk teens, such as the
Right Trak program for high-school continuation and gang prevention; and
entrepreneurial sidewalk cleaning business, owned and operated by the kids;
and a new program for re-entry of kids into the community after release
from juvenile detention.
Reaction to the story was swift.
A group called OC-16 wants to make the club one of 16 fund-raising projects
they want take on. Tara Heller conducted a tour of the club's Sixth Street
facility and said she wanted to help.
Michael and Marlin Rubin donated $1,000.
A North Tustin man put the club in his will to receive his home after his
death. (He means me,Tinfoil. That's what $500,000 gets. Must'nt upset the public with messy stories of childhood sexual abuse. Far better to sweep it under the rug. We should be ashamed of ourselves,right?)
Dr. Kim Khauv, a Tustin chiropractor, is planning a series of volleyball
tournaments to benefit the club.
Calling them the Tustin Grass Doubles, the first will be held Saturday, May
8, at Cedar Grove Park, Pioneer Road at Pioneer Way, starting at 8 a.m.
Entry fees for each tournament are $50 per team for up to 16 teams, with
all the proceeds going to the club.
"I first ran into the Boys and Girls Club in Venice Beach," Khauv said.
"They were doing such a good job up there, when I moved my office to Tustin
I wanted to continue my association. I took a tour of their club and I
believe they're doing a great job of keeping kids busy in a safe place for
safe after-school activities."
The steering committee for the El Camino Real Street Fair and Chili
Cook-Off has designated half of the proceeds of this June's event to the
Tustin Rotary Club. That club, in turn, has designated its half to the Boys
and Girls Club of Tustin.
"It's really appreciated," said Boys and Girls Club of Tustin Executive
Director Cliff Polston. "When people read the news they tend to think
someone else is going to take care of it. It's good to get an immediate
response like this."

Tinfoil......sorry to hear about this......give your money to a better source, like your college or sounds like they will appreciate it alot more.....i know the weakness of the press......i had something happen to me when i was in the hospital, somebody stold my 6 cats......really......i called my local newspaper, hoping that they would investigate.....they thought i was a nut case, which i guess i am......they said they would contact me, but of course they never did.....the press only wants to print things their customers can deal with......or if it is sensational in nature....the sensationalism is the only reason the priest scandal is occuring now.....the press has an ax to grind against the catholic church....if this was a boy scout scandal, it would not have received the coverage it will notice, the entire focus has been on the church.....what about the victims?????? Hang in there......maybe contact a different newspaper, or write the story it here if nobody else will publish least you will get it out.....take care......michael

Hi Michael. It's been dealt with,now. My story would've reached 80,000 with the one-line comment re my donation. Now it'll reach 800,000,be an extensive article and earn the writer a Pulitzer. The others view us as victims,weakened,ineffectual. That's true as regards some areas of existence. But in other areas we excell magnificantly. I have a theory as to why this is so. Has much to do with Nancy Etcoff's work with aphasics. We were helpless and dominated once. That will not happen again. We're older now. And we know things the others don't. About belief-systems,motivation,what pulls peoples' triggers. Attacked,we lay waste to the opposition. They're left wondering "I thought these people were crippled. Easy victims". We have nothing to be ashamed of. What happened to us was'nt our fault. If the Establishment rushes at us teeth flashing,fight back. Wreak havoc upon them..
