Be THE JOURNAL, Thursday, July 8, 2021 STILLWATER Talking and listening is the best way to reunite a sorely divided America. In a partnership with Sto- ryCorps, KOSU is inviting V people across Oklahoma to take part in meaning- ful conversations being recorded for history. With support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Oklahoma is one of six locations across the country selected to take part in StoryCorps’ nationwide One Small Step initiative to facilitate and broadcast conver- sations with Americans of opposing viewpoints. With participant permis- sion, these conversations are preserved for future generations at the Amer- ican Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps is a national nonprofit dedicated to recording and preserving personal stories, KOSU plans to broadcast edited versions of some of the Oklahoma submis- sions. “After a year of isolation and division, it’s time to remember what we have in common. At KOSU, we are honored to facilitate these conversations,” said Rachel Hubbard,'KOSU executive director. “It is important to us that all Oklahomans feel heard A and valued, no matter their ~¥ life experiences or what ?

" shaped them.” Dave Isay, founder and president of StoryCorps, agrees. “Recent polls demon- strate what most of us have already experienced first-hand: that there is a pervasive culture of contempt that threatens the very foundations of our democracy,” he said. “According to a CBS News poll released earlier this year, more than half of all Americans say the greatest danger to Amer— ica’s way of life comes from their fellow citi- zens. One Small Step aims to remind people of the humanity in all of us and that it’s hard to hate up close. These communities can model this change for the rest of the country.” President and CEO Patri- cia Harrison says the Cor- poration for Public Broad- casting is very pleased to support this effort. “StoryCorps uses its innovative approach to sharing stories in its One Small Step Communities initiative to foster under— standing and respect, even among people who deeply disagree,” she said. “By working with local public radio stations to connect [people with different backgrounds and polit- ical beliefs, One Small Step is helping stations strengthen their commu- nities, one step at a time.” Launched by StoryCorps in 2018 in response to growing division in the country, One Small Step. is a national initiative that pairs two strangers who hold different views in facilitated and recorded conversations to coun- teract intensifying hostil- ity and enable those who disagree to listen to each other with respect. Rather than spark addi- tional partisan debates, One Small Step encour- ages answers to questions such as, “Was there a moment, event, or person in your life that shaped your political views?” and “What scares you most when you think about the future?” KOSU encourages Okla- homa residents to take part in this limited-time opportunity: - Information about how to participate is at kosu. org/onesmallstep. - To accommodate partic- ipant comfort levels with in-person recording ses- sions, KOSU may use Sto- ryCorps’ remote recording I Community [(05 U partners to foster conversations across US ideological divides platform, over video. KOSU will also team up with a variety of com- munity organizations to spread the word and col- laborate with StoryCorps to match participants and record conversations through the, end of the year. The project will include a series of public listening events, streamed online, in fall 2021. Find out how your organization can partner with KOSU at kosu.org/onesmallstep. KOSU’s participation in the One Small Step Com- munities project is made possible by the Corpora- tion for Public Broadcast- ing. StoryCorps’ national One Small Step initiative is made possible by the generous support of The Hearthland Foundation, the Fetzer Institute, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Corpora- tion for Public Broadcast— ing and the Charles Koch Institute. Man iailed on 10 counts of child abuse in Stillwater By Patti Weaver Journal Correspondent STILLWATER — A Shaw- nee man has been jailed on $60,000 bail pending his arraignment this week on 10 child abuse counts alleged to have occurred in Payne County during a seven-year period when he lived in Stillwater and the surrounding area. Erick Roy Hale, 34, could be given a maxi- mum penalty of 10 life prison terms if convicted of two counts of child sexual abuse and eight counts of child physical abuse filed in Payne County by pros- ecutor Debra Vincent last week. Stillwater Police Officer Shawn Millermon began an investigation in March when he received a referral from the Oklahoma Depart- ment of Human Services that originated in another county regarding sexual and physical abuse of two children by Hale, an affida- vit alleged. “In the referral it was made apparent there were other children in the home at the time of the abuse,” the affidavit alleged. “On March 25-26, I was present for forensic inter- views of minor children,” ages 7, 10, 11 and 13, that were conducted at the Sav- ille Center, the Stillwater police officer wrote in his affidavit. A l3—year—old girl “dis- closed physical abuse, as well as sexual abuse by Erick at locations in Still- water and the surrounding area,” between the ages of 5 and 10, the affidavit alleged. At one point, the girl “and her siblings were told by her mother to go pack their clothes because they were leaving Erick,” who tried to stop them, the affidavit alleged. An 11-year—old boy said that when he was 2, he “received stitches from being slammed into the bed frame by Erick,” the affi- davit alleged. He disclosed being present when Erick physically abused,” four other children on various days and various locations, the affidavit alleged. He said, “Erick told him not to tell anyone,” the affidavit alleged. A 10-year-Old girl said that when she was about 4, she was choked and “thought she was going to die because she couldn’t breathe,” the affida- vit alleged. She said the 13-year-old girl “had told her about being sexually abused by Erick, but did not want to talk about herself ,” the affidavit alleged. Asked who she could talk to if she needed help, the 10-year- old girl said “she would talk to no one because she would be brave,” the affi- davit alleged. The Stillwater police officer wrote in an affidavit, “On April 6, 2021, I was present for the forensic interviews,” of two boys, ages 11 and 12, who were interviewed in another county. The 12-year-Old boy “disclosed being sexually assaulted by Erick when they lived in Stillwater,” between the ages of 8 and 9, the affidavit alleged. The l l-year—old boy “dis- closed being pushed down the stairs by Erick ,” after he and another boy dropped a kitten, the affidavit alleged. The boy, who was 6 or 7, “hit his head when this hap- pened and he remembered Erick laughing at him,” the affidavit alleged. Both boys “disclosed being made to watch Erick ‘rape’ their mother,” the affidavit alleged.
