We were at gull on sat. Me and the MRS were walking around the island and I saw a guy running after another guy and he ran up behind the guy and suckerpunched him. From what I understand it was all over a comment made about a women.
We went back to our boat and about 15 min later these same group are running to there boat and one of the guys is bleeding. I didn't know what happend so I offered them my first aid kit. They said one of them just got stabbed and needed to get him to the hospital.
St. Clair County Sheriff's boat pulled up to the Island about 5 min later and they were looking for someone but thats all I know. We left shortly after that.
It only takes 1 or 2 a**holeS to ruin it for everyone

The Sherriffs came up to my friends, that were chillin' by a bonfire saturday, and asked if they knew the guy. I wish I could remember his name. I was down in my cabin when they came back to the boats and only heard part of the story. I didn't realize someone had been hurt at that time.

I really feel that this is getting a little ridiculous! Can we have one FUN event where someone doesn't get shot or stabbed? The fighting thing is B.S. too!!

It is the 1% RULE, THE 1% WILL RUIN IT FIR THE 99%.
Why don't these low lifes get a clue.
Someone SAID something about someone........ SO all logical thinking says, "GO STAB HIM" ......... NOT !
What is wrong with these people !!???

They are probably City-its (Idiots from the City) who don't respect each other their, let alone have respect for us, and the easy laid back, have a drink relax group most boaters are.

Stabbing sends man to hospital

By Shannon Murphy
Times Herald

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CLAY TWP. -- A 19-year-old Marine City man is expected to be arrested and arraigned today for stabbing another man during the annual Jobbie Nooner party Saturday.

The man, whose name police are not releasing pending his arraignment, slashed Edward Champine, 24, of Algonac across the chest during a fight, St. Clair County Sheriff Detective Terry Baker said.

The man is expected to be charged with felonious assault, a four-year felony, Baker said.

The Jobbie Nooner party -- which is on and around Gull Island on Anchor Bay -- was June 25, but police said many people stay overnight on their boats or come back to party the next day.

Baker gave this account of the stabbing: At about 7 p.m. Saturday, Champine tried to break up a fight between people he did not know. The Marine City man pulled out a knife and slashed it across Champine's chest, leaving a gash from the top of his left breastbone to the bottom right of his stomach.

Champine ran back to his boat, where friends flagged down sheriff department marine-division deputies patrolling the area.

"The officers thought he was opened up like Time magazine," Baker said. "There was blood everywhere."

Champine was transported via the patrol boat to Harsens Island, then taken across the Algonac Ferry. From there, an ambulance took him to St. John River District Hospital in East China Township. He received 100 stitches and was released later that night.

Lt. Bill Krul, who heads the marine division, said the stabbing was the worst incident that happened on the island during this year's event. He said there were about 14 drunken-driving arrests, including drunken driving of watercrafts, and several tickets written for overloading boats and reckless driving.

Krul said policing the event is always a problem because of the increased number of people in the area and the nature of the event. He said about 1,000 boats were at the event. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers owns the island.

"It's a drain on manpower and a drain on the budgets of the agencies involved," he said. "There are no limitations (on the island), and it makes it so difficult for policing because there's nothing to fall back on."

I can not believe they are saying this was a jobbienooner thing!
What is the editors name and number or email address? I'm going to call him and let him know that I believe this is in no way connected to the party and I believe there doing a diservice to everyone that enjoys jobbienooner in a responsable way. I think everyone else should do that same. Why are we going to let this guy get away with this? This burns my a$$!

I called and left a message on his machine, pretty much as follows:

Please check the facts in the article by ....., the stabbing incident occured on Saturday Evening whereas the jobbienooner party was friday at noon (hence the nooner). This blatant disregard for the facts gives the JN party a bad reputation and there are a lot of boaters that are distrubed by this never ending attack on this party. Are we now going to blame anything that happens on the island a Jobbie nooner provoked incident?

I left my name and number and told him he can call me if he cares to elaborate why the facts werent checked for the story.

Well I got my response although I'm not very happy with it and there will be a follow up response on my part.

QUOTEMr. Lamarre,

Your e-mail concerning our coverage of the Jobbie Nooner was forwarded
to me. Thank you for taking the time to write.

While the Jobbie Nooner begins Friday, the local police consider the
event as Friday and Saturday because, as the police note in our July 2
story, some people stay all night or come back in the morning. The police
put on extra patrols for the entire weekend because of the party;
therefore, we consider it one event as well.

What a crock
the police were out there telling all the women getting naked on Saturday that Jobbie Nooner was OVER and they will not tolerate the same acts that went on Friday because there were families on the island.
