Dear 'lambs06',

Thank you for posting to the forum and for including your e-mail address. I hope others will contact you as I plan to. I have included my name and e-mail address at the bottom of this post as I have before.

This was posted in another thread on the 'Jeromesville' Topix forum called 'Dale'. I include it here so that we have a common place to share information. Here is the post, and my comments.

Kind regards,

Mark

"cant believe a word wrote:"

Ihave known Dale Ables for years and my ex husband hung aound him and so did my son and he never laid a hand on either them. Everyone in Jeromesville knows he is a very wealthy man and would do anything for anyone for u people to be saying this stuff about a innocent man is beyond me. If this so called molestion has happened or is happening why hasnt it ever been brought up til now he is 80 yrs old for crying out loud. You cant Ashland Sheriff dept wouldnt investagate yea right they would and its not because Dale has all the money in the world... I would trust him with my kids to this day.."

I replied:

"Thank you for posting to the forum. I would encourage to read the 40 other comments that have posted ovet the past 2-1/2 years on the thread entitled 'Dale Ables'. I hope you will take them to heart but you must judge your own heart. No one else can. I would personally never trust my child, nor anyone else's, in Dale Ables' presence. He is a pedophile and he has sexually abused many children, including me.

Some of the comments come directly from other men who were molested by Dale Ables as children. Sadly, this is not a "story" that someone made up. It is our collective truth. I hope you will re-read the other 40 comments; one of them is posted below and another was posted just hours ago. It is from someone who says that his/her nephew was sexaually abused by Ables and it includes an e-mail address. There is a commonality in the information and truth in what we post, not opinion. We write in an effort to help protect other innocent kids from the ravages of child sexual abuse, and as a catharsis.

This was posted by 'Living Out West' in December, 2009. He started the thread called 'Dale Ables':

In the late 60's, I was a boy scout out of Ashland, Ohio. Dale Ables, the one in Jeromesville, Ohio was a boy scout leader during those days. He used to pick me up in his white convertible sports car and take me places. Unfortunately, given my youth and ignorance, I went back to his place (he lived with his mother) and stayed a few nights. During these times, he would reach around and touch me in the crotch area but I would push him away. In the morning, he would ask me if he was in the "doghouse" for what he did to me the night before. Dale Ables is a child molestor. I contacted the local sheriff, over the past few years, and he refuses to discuss the issue and got rather rude with me during our exchange regarding Dale Ables. I simply do not know how Dale Ables has remained out of prison all of these years...he is one sick person. I am now 54 years old and these memories of molestation still haunt me today. The Ashland Co. Sheriff, the one with no balls, needs to conduct an investigation since I am certain Ables is still molesting."

Kind regards,

Mark

I was in 3rd grade going to see Dale he never tried to touch me in any way shape or form. Its funny how people search for drama parents come to the swimming pool with their kids. I am now 18 and Dale is still my friend my friends come to hang out with him all the time. This is false accusations used to start drama and B.S. I never once seen any kids act offended. He is like 72 at his age what child wouldn’t be able to defend them around an old man lol!!! Rumors of what I hear that he pays kids to have sex that’s a lie. Alot of those kids know Dale is rich and from what I see they beg him for money which is kind of messed up. And Dale would tell them no! So when they don’t get their way and they hear of these false accusations they become fucked up and will make false words ring to your ears. It’s sad to see how easily civilians can easily be manipulated. Dale and I talked and I'm telling him to probably stop this pool thing that was supposed to be fun for the community of Jeromesville, so this drama will stop. I refuse to give my name and give the name of these kids who play a huge part of this because that will steer up more drama and I just want this to die out. It's sad how people continuously try to look for shit to talk about. I understand that many parents maybe on here because of their concern for their children and I respect that. But if you have such great concern then make sure someone you can trust is watching over your children when swimming at his pool. Dale is currently thinking about stopping that pool idea, so people will stop making such a big issue. I knew him since I was a young boy never once has he ever asked anything that’s not out of reason.

By the way Mark lol why would you make something of such a big concern. I heard you loive in New Hampsher lmao! I was rapped when i was 5 for almost over an hour screaming and fighting. I don't search for the man who had done these things to me. I learned that the past is the past and shit can't change. But why would you be like a stalker looking for every way possible to try to get Dale into trouble. Im not saying you may have not been a victim of this. But what I am say is you can't cling to the past. What happend to you in like the 60's is in the past. I am glad i don't search for the guy that rapped me because why would you want to inflinct such great amount of damage of pain you can't and won't ever change. People do wrong and make amends so who's to say that Dale is a bad person now people change.

Thanks for your post to the forum. You make several excellent points, some of which have already been addressed here in the forum. So I’ll try not to be repetitive. Facts are facts and people are welcome to do as they wish with the information they read here. One fact is Dale Ables sexually abused me, and others. It’s not, as you say,“…false accusations used to start drama.” Who needs drama when there are so many other positive and productive things to do with our time?
.
Consider for a moment: Why would two people who don’t know each another and who live about as far apart as possible (‘Living Out West’, in Los Angeles, and me, in New Hampshire) independently, and 35 years later, want to “start drama” by deciding to post the very same thing about Dale Ables, at nearly the same time? It defies coincidence, especially when you look at the subsequent comments others have posted saying essential the same thing: Dale Ables is a pedophile. He sexually abused many boys, including me, and I wonder,“Does he still?” No drama, just fact.
.
A benevolent benefactor his is not. Dale Ables uses he seemingly innocent and generous nature to entice young boys to his house. Does he molest them all? No. Has he sexually abused some? He definitely has, repeatedly and over many years. Not all drunk drivers kill all people, but some do. Not all burglars rob all people, but they do steal from some people under the cover of darkness. Dale Ables stole my innocence when he sexually abused me.
.
I was sad to read that you were ‘rapped’[sic] when you were 5 years old and I’m sorry for your pain. It sounds like a horrible experience and I wish you peace. Consider yourself very fortunate that you were not re-victimized by Dale Ables. Because he did not sexually abuse you, does not mean that he has not molested others. He has, and he does. I am one of his many victims, and there are others who have had the courage to recount what happened to them here on the forum. I beleive they will continue and I believe we have only seen the tip of a decades-long iceberg.
.
I am glad that you “…understand that many parents [are] concerned for their children.” They should be. A 72 year old man who “hangs out” with teenage and pre-teenage boys? Something is very wrong with this picture and it only take re-reading the comments on this forum, and the e-mails I’ve received, to know what is going on. Dale Ables sexually molests young boys. I hope people will have the courage to confront and to stop him from molesting another innocent child. You can do something about it or turn a blind eye to logic, reason, and truth. Thanks again for your comments,

Kind regards,

Mark

Mark im sorry man but... honestly your waisting your time over nothing man. I know Dale he isn't like that and all my friends seem to be cool with him. Idk believe what you want. And by the way "Does he still?" is a question man not a fact. And i answer no. Besides i know he's going to close down the pool anyway. He was upset that he just gets beaten down because people rumoring.

Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
James 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
2 Corinthians 12:20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
1 Timothy 5:13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
I know someone will judge this bad because this is not what they want to hear. But this is the truth, Gods Word.
And if you are an atheist and dont believe in God.(which is a sad thing and I will pray for you) We still live in America and everyone is innocent until proven quilty in a court of law.

Thank you for your kind words. Sadly, everyone is not innocent until proven quilty in a court of law. Many guilty people perpetrate crimes and are never arrested and charged. That is unfortunately the case with Dale Ables. He sexually abused me, and other boys, as children and he has not yet been brought to justice. If God is just, perhaps he will intervene and see that legal and moral justice is served.

If you are a man of God, perhaps you will help. Perhaps you were made aware of this situation and sent to help. Only you and God know the answer. Thanks again for your kind words. God bless you, too.

Dear Friends and Parents,

As the weather gets warmer and swimming season arrives, please be careful around the water, especially if it's Dale Ables' swimming pool. He uses it-- and other things-- to entice young boys near him. I would never consider letting my child, male or female, go near him. And if he closes his pool, watch for him to use other ways to lure young boys to him. Be vigilent and be careful. This guy is a pedophile.

If the water smells like fish, something is fishy and there may be a shark lurking. Be careful and please keep your children safe. I wish someone had told me this before he sexually abused me, and others.

Kind regards,

Mark

When I read about the tragedy and heartbreak that pedophile Jimmy Savile perpetrated over decades, and when I hear him described as "hiding in plain sight", I'm reminded again of the pain that Dale Ables caused me and others whom he sexually abused as children.

Dale Ables is "hiding" in plain sight and he is a pedophile. Read the comments in this forum for more details. Beware and be vigilant because he is not a 'nice man'. He is a serial pedophile. I, and others, will swear to that in a court of law. Like Savile, Ables cannot hide forever.

A quote from the article in the link I posted above says,

"I want us to forget Jimmy Savile. He is not worthy of memory... But I want us to remember his many victims."

Let me paraphrase the quote and give it context:

"I wish I could forget Dale Ables and what he did to me, which was sexually abuse me as a child. He is not worthy of memory... But I want us to remember his many victims"...

...and I ask that you to do something about it. Those who know what he has done, and do nothing about it, are complicit. Silence is not a solution; speaking out is. I pray that God gives you the courage to speak out and do something, for the victims' sake and for your own dignity.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for all your e-mails and for the information you are providing. I thought you might find this excerpt informative. Note that it says "most child sexual abuse could [be] prevented." Inform yourselves-- and especially your children-- about how to recognize potential sexual abusers by their common characteristics and 'grooming' techniques. Look around you, and if the shoe fits, beware. I wish someone had told me this years ago, before Dale Ables sexually molested me. Recognize, Run, Resist, and Report.

----------

DID YOU KNOW- According to National statistics 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18? Most sexual abuse is committed by someone the child knows and trusts and, most sexual abuse could have been prevented.

"Boundaries" [a book] was designed to teach parents and child care-givers how to recognize potential sexual abusers by their common characteristics and grooming techniques, and to prevent sexual abuse by teaching children the safety skills: Recognize, Run, Resist, and Report.

Studies show these skills can greatly reduce the ability of a sexual abuser to infiltrate your family and molest a child in your care!"

Be smart and stay safe,

Mark

Dear Friends,
Silence is complicity if you know about these things, past or present, and choose to do nothing. It is your responsibility to report them and it is ultimately your conscience that you have to live with. Right is right and wrong is wrong. Your heart knows the difference.

As summer turns to fall and as football season is upon us I wonder: does Dale Ables still host 'post game parties' for the players and their friends? If so, then beware. This is one of the many ploys-- free food, music, and a pool table-- he uses to lure young boys into his apartment, where he sexually abuses those who are more passive and naive. He offers massages to "relieve sore muscles after the game.:

I know this because I am a victim of Dale Ables' sexual abuse. I am no longer naive but his violation of trust left me jaded and cynical well into my adult life.

I want you to know that Dale Ables is a cunning, calculated pedophile, not a "nice old man" that some believe him to be. Don't be fooled and don't let your children near him. If you are a victim of his sexual abuse or if you know of anyone who is, please post to this forum, contact law enforcement officers, or contact me directly. Thank you and take care.

Dear friends and Jeromesville neighbors,

Aren't you curious why a 70 year-old man is 'friends' on MySpace with 13 year-old boys?

https://myspace.com/men_and_boys_oo_yea

I can tell you why. Dale Devoe Ables is a serial pedophile. He sexually abused me and other boys when we were children living in Jeromesville. Please read the the threads above to verify this. He's still at it, as he has been for decades, and enough is enough. You can do something about it.

I'm absolutely amazed that Dale Ables is permitted to 'socialize' with children, right before educated and caring peoples' eyes in Jeromesville. You know what's going on. Please have the courage to act by reporting what you know to the Ashland County Sheriff's Office, to the FBI office in Mansfield or Cleveland (child sexual abuse is a federal crime), to a friend that you trust... to someone, to anyone. Please, please don't let this continue. Don't let another innocent child's life be marred forever as mine has been.

You CAN do something. I ask you to follow your conscience, your integrity, your heart, and your beliefs. It has taken a lot of courage-- and many years of silence-- for me to have the courage to post on the forum. I hope you will be as courageous.

“All it takes for evil to succeed is for a few good men to do nothing.”~ Edmund Burke

Dale Devoe Ables is an evil, evil person. He is a serial pedophile, living among you.

Take care,

Mark

Source: The Daily Record, October 20, 2001 - "I really like it in Jeromesville," said Ables, "or I wouldn't have stayed here for more than 55 years." He is retired from a supervisory position with the state welfare system, and worked in Columbus for many years while spending many weekends in Jeromesville. Ables also owns rental property in Jeromesville. "I believe being a (rental) property owner gives me an added perspective to council decisions that the others may not have," said Ables.

Ables has served the community previously by working with **youth service organizations and on church committees.** http://cases.ohiocourtofclaims.gov/cgi-bin/ws...
