LANSING (AP) - Democrats say a
win by John Kerry in Macomb County
will go a long way toward securing
Michigan's 17 electoral votes.
The county, home to conservative
Democrats who backed Republican
Ronald Reagan in the 1980s and an
increasing number of Republicans
moving into suburbs and rural areas
north and west of Detroit, narrowly
rte went with Democrat Al Gore in 2000.
Gore nudged President Bush 50 percent
to 48 percent in the county on his way
to winning Michigan overall.
Kerry hoped to energize voters in
the crucial swing county with a rally
yesterday evening that was to feature
rock star Jon Bon Jovi at Macomb
Community College in Warren.
This year, with polls showing a
close race between Bush and Kerry
statewide and The Macomb Daily of
Mount Clemens endorsing Bush, the
Massachusetts senator isn't taking any
chances on losing Macomb. Hundreds
of Kerry supporters were expected at
yesterday's rally, and Kerry campaign
volunteers have been contacting voters
in the county in recent days.
"Macomb County is the consum-
mate swing county," Kerry's Michigan
campaign director Donnie Fowler said
Monday during a conference call with
reporters. "Kerry hasn't been there in a
while. That's why he's going back again."
Kerry last was in Macomb County
on March 26, when he attended a rally
attended by hundreds of union workers
at a United Auto Workers hall in War-
ren a day after the UAW's executive
board endorsed him.
He plans to return this weekend to
Michigan for a Detroit rally whose
details still were being worked out,
Fowler said. Elizabeth Edwards, wife of
Kerry running mate John Edwards, will
hold a town hall meeting today in Flint.
The visits will bracket a two-day
swing through Michigan by Presi-
dent Bush, who plans to campaign at a
Detroit-area rally tomorrow evening and
at an event in Saginaw on Thursday.
Kerry campaign spokesman Joe
Lockhart told reporters yesterday

WARREN (AP) - Hundreds of
Michigan parents are going to court
each year to seek orders protecting their
children from bullies. Last year, courts
issued 696 personal protection orders
against minors.
Christine DeLorme of Warren is
behind one such order.
She said she forbade her 10-year-old
son to walk to a friend's house without a
walkie-talkie in hand because of an 11-
year-old neighborhood bully.
The other boy delivered a regular
barrage of taunting and name calling,
once grabbing her son off his bike and
slapped him. The other boy also spread
rumors that her son had AIDS, she
said. To stop the abuse, DeLorme hand-
wrote a request for a personal protection
order.
"All of these episodes are threatening
to (my son) because he is afraid of being
beaten," her request said. "It gives (him)
the feeling of dying."
Personal protection orders in
Michigan are still dominated by

adults. Juvenile cases make up about
2 percent.
Typically, a protection order prohib-
its assaults, attacks or interfering with
the victim's job or education. It also
can prohibit approaching or confront-
ing the victim, or contacting the victim
by telephone.
Constant bullying is tantamount to
domestic violence, but courts still are
more willing to grant protection to an
abused spouse than to a bullied child,
said Glenn Stutzky, clinical instructor at
Michigan State University's School of
Social Work.
"The children who are the ongo-
ing targets at school don't have any
less feelings of pain, any less feel-
ings of fearfulness and any less feel-
ings of hopelessness," Stutzky said.
He said he advises parents and kids
to go to court as a last resort to stop
harassment.
About 30 percent of students nation-
ally say they have been involved in bul-
lying, either as the perpetrator, victim or
both, according to a 2001 study funded
by the National Institute of Child Health
and Human Development, which sur-

that the president remains vulner-
able on domestic issues, particularly
in the Midwest. Michigan's Septem-
ber unemployment rate was 6.8 per-
cent, well above the national rate of
5.4 percent.
"We know this is a close race. We
know that turnout is going to be crucial.
But we believe we enter the last week in
a position of strength" nationally and
especially in battleground states such
as Michigan, Lockhart said.
He added that, while Bush and Vice
President Dick Cheney have been
campaigning recently at Michigan
stops with a message aimed at con-
solidating their base, Kerry's message
reaches a broader spectrum.
"Our message, I think, really does
appeal equally to base (Democratic) vot-
ers ... and to swing voters, whether they
be conservative Democrats or moderate
Republicans," Lockhart said.

During an earlier stop yesterday in
New Hampshire, Kerry accused Bush
of "incredible incompetence" in the
war on Iraq, citing the disappear-
ance of hundreds of tons of powerful
explosives stored in a military instal-
lation in Iraq.
Kerry said the Bush administration had
"miscalculated about how to go to war,
miscalculated about the numbers of troops
that we would need, miscalculated about
sending young Americans to war without
the armor they needed, without the Hum-
vees they needed that were armored."
"And the incredible incompetence
of this president and this adminis-
tration has put our troops at risk and
put this country at greater risk than
we ought to be," Kerry said.
"My opponent has the wrong strategy
for the wrong country at the wrong time,"
Bush shot back as the campaign for the
White House entered its final full week.
