Though he never reached the lead actor status he labored so relentlessly to achieve, Warren Oates (1928–1982) is one of the most memorable and skilled character actors of the 1970s. With his rugged looks and measured demeanor, Oates crafted complex characters who were at once brazen and thoughtful, wild and subdued. Friends remember the hard-living, hard-drinking actor as kind and caring, but also sometimes as mean as a blue-eyed devil. Married four times, partial to road trips in his RV affectionately known as the “Roach Coach,” and famous for performances for directors ranging from Sam Peckinpah to Steven Spielberg, Warren Oates remained a Hollywood outsider perfectly suited to the 1960s and 1970s counterculture. Born in the small town of Depoy in rural western Kentucky and reared in...

BAY CITY, MI – Art Dore has asked the question a million times. He's asked businessmen and blue-collar men, contract negotiators and construction workers, world-class boxers and bar-room brawlers. The crux of a man just might be his answer to the question: Are you tough enough. And through his beginnings as a boxer, his business dealings on behalf of the demolition industry, and his legal battles in the corner of Toughman Boxing, Dore has made certain nobody ever needed to ask that question of him. Damn right, Art Dore is tough enough. "He sure is," said longtime cohort Bob Arsenault. "When he gets knocked on his backside, he gets up and fights more. He'll fight for what he thinks is right. That's what champions do. ". Dore, the Bay City entrepreneur who put his hometown on the international boxing map with the Toughman Contest, is heading into the Bay County Sports Hall of Fame. He joins Jason LeCronier, Murray Sutherland, Gary Stefaniak, Tom Stasik, Cindy Shaheen, Jim Deming, the 1983 Bay County Pony League all-stars and the 2000 Bay City All Saints baseball team in the Class of 2016 at induction ceremonies Sunday, Oct. 9 at the DoubleTree hotel and conference center in downtown Bay City. The 80-year-old Dore has become an icon as Bay City's most prominent businessman. His Dore Associates empire is centered around a nationally known demolition company, but he also has his hands in the Prime Event Center, Saginaw Valley Golf Course, Hampton Towne Center and a handful of Midland Street taverns. Meet the 2016 Hall of Fame inductees. But his base has long been boxing. He took the Toughman Contest that he launched in Bay City with fellow Hall of Famer Dean Oswald in 1979 and turned it into an international sensation. The man-off-the-street boxing contest swept the country – and beyond – as people from all walks of life stepped into the ring for grassroots boxing shows. "There were certain guys around town who had the reputation of being (bad dudes)," Dore said. "They were the guys who would walk in a bar and people wouldn't even look at them – they didn't want to give them a problem. "We said 'Let's put all these guys together and see who is the toughest of 'em all. We got all of those guys, plus some other guys who thought they were just as tough. Toughman would explode in popularity, with Dore – and his "Are you tough enough. " slogan -- orchestrating up to 135 shows a year across the country. It was featured as a series on Showtime, FX and FOX Sports and inspired the movie "Tough Enough," starring Dennis Quaid as a long-shot Toughman boxer and Warren Oates as an Art Dore-like promoter. But Dore and his enterprise would come under fire after some Toughman contestants died or suffered debilitating injuries, including Dore's friend Kenny Meylan. Dore found himself in a new kind of fight, with a series of litigation, government legislation and courtroom battles. Saying "I always believed in it," Dore refused to close the book on Toughman. He made several changes to enhance the safety of participants and – although the popularity has dwindled – the Toughman Contest is still operating today. "My father has a competitive nature, for sure," said Wendy Dore, one of Art's eight children. Dore's draw to boxing came from his boyhood, growing up on the Kawkawlin farm of parents Art and Genevieve Dore. He said his father was a fight fan who would implore the family to get its chores completed early on nights that Joe Louis bouts were being broadcast on the radio. "The old man wouldn't let me play football – supposedly because it was too dangerous," Dore said. "But if I milked the cows, did my chores, then wanted to go box, that was OK. ". Dore said he was active in Golden Gloves from age 15-21, competing in nearly 100 bouts – winning the majority but certainly not all. He still supports local Golden Gloves boxers, providing a gym and no-cost boxing program for the American Athletic Association run by Arsenault. "There is nothing like getting in the ring in a building full of people screaming at you," Dore said. "There's a guy across the ring from you who might be a gorilla or just a man. The bell's about to ring and you don't know what's about to happen. "Every fight was a challenge. Every fight had anticipation. Dore soon switched to training.
