GRASS LAKE, Mich. (AP) -
Two members of a rural church were
accused yesterday of sexually as-
saulting at least eight children who
belonged to the church.
Other children witnessed some
assaults, State Police and Jackson
County authorities said at a news
The investigation involving the
North Sharon Baptist Church began
when parents of one child were re-
ferred to police after taking their
child to a doctor for an unspecified
health problem, Jackson County
Sheriff Hank Zavislak said.
Zavislak said there could be more
alleged victims and suspects.
"Once the news is out, parents
begin to talk to their children and ul-
timately, more and more information
comes to light," he said.
The alleged assaults occurred
mostly on Sundays, on church prop-
erty, on a church bus and at a nearby
site. The victims were five boys anti
three girls, ages ranging from three
to five years old.
A tire iron was involved in at
least one of the assaults, police told
The Jackson Citizen Patriot.
A Sunday school bus driver who
is a member of the church is bei ig
held on one count of first-degree
criminal sexual conduct and four
second-degree counts in alleged as-
saults on five children, authorities
He was jailed in lieu of S75,()00

bail and was expected to be ar-
raigned today, Zavislak said.

An associate church pastor was
expected to surrender early next
week when he returns from an out-
of-state trip, State Police Lt. Garry
Kregelka said. Warrants alleging
four first-degree and three second-
degree criminal sexual conduct
counts involving three children have
been issued against him, authorities
"The church is deeply troubled
about this situation and has cooper-
ated fully and totally during this en-
tire investigation and will continue
to do so," the church said in a
The two-story, red brick church,
accessible only by dirt road,'is sur-
rounded by farms and sis in front of
a tiny one-story schoolhouse in
Washtenaw County's Sharon
Township near the Jackson County
The suspects went to low-income
housing projects or trailer parks
where they told parents they would
"take the children to church and
teach them about God," Detective
Robert Fitzpatrick of the Jackson
County Sheriff's Department told
the Citizen Patriot.
Several parents at a Jackson
trailer park said yesterday they re-
moved their children from the
church Sunday school because they
didn't feel comfortable.

not the only ones who paid a price in
that war, great as theirs was."
Aging war veterans of both sexes
paused on Veterans Day to remem-
ber their fallen comrades and urge
Michigan and the nation not to for-
get them in peacetime.
U.S. Sen. Donald Riegle (D-
Mich.) met yesterday with a group
of Michigan veterans who came to
the nation's capital to commemorate
the 10th anniversary of the memorial
wall for Vietnam veterans.
Don Southwell of Grand Rapids,
who travels to Washington three or
four times a year to lobby for veter-
ans benefits, said about 6() Vietnam
veterans who also are members of
the United Auto Worker s union
made the trip together.
"This gives them a chance to take
part in the Veterans Day events and
gives them some idea ... of the mag-
nitude. A lot of them come from
small towns where Veterans Day
means about 100 people gather at
the town square by a rock or near a
plaque," said Southwell, who served
in Vietnam from 1968-69.
The entire week has been set
aside to honor the more than 1 mil-
lion living women veterans in the
United States. A plaque will be laid
at the future site of the Vietnam
Women's Memorial in Washington.
"I've seen a lot of dead people,"
said Serena Webb, of Roseville,
Mich., an Army Reserve nurse who
served in Operation Desert Storm.
"But when they pull that sheet back
and you look at the person and you

see they are wearing the same uni-
form, you realize it could have been
On the college front, Veterans
Day activity was lacking at cam-
puses across the nation, including
Ann Arbor.
LSA junior Matt Iverson, al
member of the the U-M Army Re-
serve Officer Training Corp (ROTC)
program said ROTC sponsored ac-
tivities honoring war heroes from
World War II - including a flag re-
treat ceremony honoring veterans.

yesterday in front of North Hall
Iverson attributed the lack of cel-
ebration at the university to the .
campus' apathy toward the military..
"It is just a lack of awareness of -
the military. A lot of it has to do
with a bias in the faculty and admin-
istration against ROTC members."''
He added that ROTC will spon-
sor activities today honoring WWII- .
veterans - including a presentation:::
from Michigan veterans who wilI
speak about their war experiences. :.
At the University of Mas-
sachusetts at Amherst, ROTC mem-;
bers constructed a bamboo cage to
honor prisoners of war. However.
the campus did not sponsor any for
mal activities.
