such a situation does not arise again.
"My position is that it's a horrendous
problem. Something should be done,
should be done right and not hyster-
ically," she said.
I contacted the Washtenaw Crises
Center and was told 'it's common
practice' for restaurants to treat the
situation like that."
THE DAILY conducted a spot
check of local restaurants, asking if
there was an estaplished policy for
dealing with victims assaulted upon
leaving the restaurant.
THERE IS NO set policy. Many
business managers or owners have
never considered the problem. Treat-
ment is left to the discretion of the
individuals working when an assault

Louise Pietsch, of Mr. Flood's
Party, recalled an incident of a
woman being attacked by two men
outside the front door. Pietsch pulled
the woman inside, locked the door,
then called the police.
"It's an individual decision," she
said. "You don't even think about
what's good for business. It's a life
and death situation."
"MOST OF THE places I've
worked are reputable places, where
things like that (an assault) wouldn't
happen," said Clint Anderson, man-
ager of the Lord Fox.
After considering the problem,
Dan Merke, owner of the Cracked
Crab concluded, "That's none of our
affair. It concerns the city of Ann
Arbor. I wouldn't ignore something if
I looked through the window. It's

difficult enough to be responsible for
things on the premises, let alone
something on the street," he said.
David Scully, of the Ann Arbor
Chamber of Commerce Hospitality
Department, expressed doubt local
businesses have established policies
for dealing with an assault situation.
"Some hotels may have policies in
their operations manuals. As a
general rule, we haven't done any-
thing to implement the proper proce-
bility of holding a seminar for local
bpsiness people and setting up a
general policy for dealing with
assault cases.
"We (the Chamber of Commerce)
could be interested in holding a
seminar on the issue; a series at a

central spot, easily available to the
community with qualified speakers
to discuss the problem. We could
develop a program to deal with this.
We should be willing to talk about it.
We'd take it very seriously," he
"Most people would feel they have
a responsibility for their guests and
for the general public. As a general
rule we are concerned with issues
and social problems."
"I was so sickened and angry that
these kind of things happened - that
she was treated that way," Warren
"The restaurant management
could have gotten on the phone and
called right away. As it was, she was

BELCHER DOES not feel that his
four years were wasted, though. "I'm
very proud of the fact that we've cut
down city employment. It was 1299
when I came on board and now it's 1050.
I think we've restructured the ad-
ministrative overhead that I thought
was top-heavy when I came in.
I'm happy that we've been able to
beef up our inspection code, and also
that we've been able to put more money
in the budget for code inspection. We've
also put a lot of money into our fire

on such issues as transportation and
use of Federal Community Develop-
ment Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
"I'M DAMN critical and I'm going to
continue to be critical of AATA.
Nothing gets me more upset then to
have someone say that the panacea of
our problems is going to be mass tran-
sit." Belcher said. "It's only going to be
mass transit when you have a system
that will operate and that people will
"There's a great misconception that
CDBG is only for social services. But
the fact is that they're HUD, not HEW
grants. Ann Arbor is one of only two
cities (the other is Madison, Wisc.) in
the whole country that spends the
amount of money they spend out of
their physical development funds for
services," he said.
"I think we still can give money to
daycare centers, but it has to be spent

responsibly. Just because you run a
daycare center doesn't mean that
you're the apple pie motherhood and

or you're not going to get that money."
FOR NOW, though, Belcher has his
sights set on nothing any further away
than city hall. "I love politics, but I
wouldn't like to do it full-time because
then I wouldn't have time to do all the
other things I like to do. I couldn't think
of more drudgery than being a
Congressman in Washington, constan-
tly running for office every 24 months
and being one of 435 people," he said,
"You go in and you fight every week
and sometimes you get lost. I guess,
when I look back, even though there are
a lot of things I'd like to do yet, I'm
pretty satisfied with all the things
we've done."
