"AT THE KAT AND MICK REPORT WE DON'T MAKE THE NEWS, WE JUST REPORT IT"
TERRORISTS NOT A CONCERN FOR KAT AND MICK EDITORS
With all the things going on in the world these days concerning the violence and acts of terror perpetrated against US citizens the editors of a major publication like THE KAT AND MICK REPORT should be concerned about their own assets and personnel. This is not the case at all at TKAMR in fact this is a statement to put terrorists on notice. Try anything around here and you will not live long enough to tell anyone about it and you certainly will not succeed in your mission of destruction. Case in point, in 1997 the Kat and I took a trip to visit her brother Dave in Las Vegas NV. During our trip I foiled a plot to blow up Las Vegas and did away with the perpetrators all in one fell swoop. It seems a band of no good bastards was aboard our train (before flying was their preferred mode of travel) and along with them a nuclear bomb (seeing as how AMTRAK allowed you to bring as much baggage as you wanted back then). I spotted this band of evil doers chatting and dinning in the lounge car and plotting their evil plans for the destruction of the great gambling city. Suspecting the worst but hoping for the best I checked in to their luggage and found the doomsday machine in an extra boxcar the trio had rented at the rear of the train. I immediately diffused the bomb and destroyed the detonator so the evil ones could not use that against us, I then proceeded to take them out one by one.
PEOPLE SIT IN COMFORT AS I FIGHT OFF TERRORISTS ON TOP OF THE CAR
I had the Kat lure one of the men to the next car with her womanly ways but he never got there. I was waiting for him between the cars where I pushed him out into the desert, we succeeded with the same plan for the second of the trio, but the third man became
suspicious and came in the vestibule just as I was pushing the second
man out. A struggle ensued and soon we found ourselves on top of the train wrestling for his gun. I fought the man and flopped around the top of that train for what seemed like hours, later I found out is was only ten minutes. I eventually won the battle when he had his back to the front of the train, we were fighting and standing on the top of the cars and I could see a tunnel coming. Just as we were about to enter the tunnel I ducked but the other man didn't and was decapitated. It made quite a mess on top of the train and my new pants were ruined, a small price to pay for all the lives I saved I figured. I flung the remainder of the body off the top of the train and left it in the desert for the coyotes. The rest of our stay was quite nice and uneventful.
The fourth of July was the day picked out by Scott and Judy Treml to hold their house warming and open house in their remodeled home near Luxemburg. Many people were on hand and there was plenty of food. Many of the guests toured the restored, near century old home located on Church Rd. A pool for the children and fireworks show after dusk were all set up by the Tremls as well as a bonfire. The bonfire was a welcome source of heat for those who attended after the sun went down when the temperature dipped into the thirties I think.
Alex got his orders and returned home that same day July 3rd he will be leaving for his duty in Turkey June 19th. A Party will be held in his honor at his parent's house on July 13th and everyone is welcome to attend.
ALEX IN HIS DRESS BLUES
Cheryl Purshock will return to the Oneida area on July 25th and will visit for a 4-day period returning July 29th She hopes to see as many people as she can during that time.
My apologies for the newsletter coming out a bit late this week but computer problems forced the delay to an evening edition instead of a morning edition. Once again thanks to Tim Lade for bailing us out again in our computer quagmire.

CHERYL IN HER BDU'S
ROCK-FEST EXPECTED TO DRAW RECORD CROWD
This being the near largest rock and roll celebration in Wisconsin, Rock-Fest is expected to draw a record crowd this year in the small town of Cadot Wisconsin. With actual crowd numbers in excess of 30,000 people (estimate) the Rock and Roll festival will try to break the records for attendance this coming weekend
CLEEN ON STAGE AT THE FEST
With the help of such acts as Journey and Meatloaf the festival is no doubt going to be memorable but I'm not sure any attendance records will be broken this year. With the recent September 11th tragedy on everyone's mind and terrorism
threatening our lives every day, people are not in the mood for large gatherings and parties as much as they used to be. Take for example last years Cranberry Fest in Eagle River Wisconsin, where attendance was down as well as sales for the vendors. It will be interesting to see how many people renew their tickets for next years Fest with all the turmoil about. Never the less die hards such Cleen and myself will make the trek to the western part of the state on Wed. afternoon. We will set up camp in our old spot (Bob 25) and will be done in time hopefully to enjoy a pre festival party of tunes in the beer tent by Boogie and the Yo Yo's. Mmmmm I can almost smell the port-a-potties now!
Saturday was the day selected for a party for Alex Pickett who is going to active duty in Turkey on July 19th. Pickett who is a recent graduate of the Air Force Security Forces training is excited to be going overseas and is looking forward to the experience. He says to leave a
2000 TURKEY BOWL (TB2K) COIN TOSS, ALEX AT LEFT AS NO. 30
spot open on the Turkey Bowl roster for him because he thinks he will be able to get leave for the annual event held on Thanksgiving Day. Pickett was the team captain of the Blue Jell-O's last year and contributed to the enormous victory over the Red Gobblers. This year's
event is promising to be a show down and the participation of Pickett is pivotal upon the Blue Jell-O's making a repeat victory performance in the Bowl. The party held for him on Saturday was attended by family and teammates alike and several friends showed up as well to see hem off. Although it will be sad to see him go, he has already been gone from his home for 6 months so what the hell.
CHICKEN NIGHT NEWS
Once again the complimentary combination of fried food and alcohol was the key to successfully enticing everyone into song at the Chicken Night haven of Cliff and Ceil's bar on Eaton Hole Rd. Queen of Chicken Night, Jean Poquette Hansen and Trixie Sobieck erupted in song during a jukebox playing of Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline during which the Queen commanded everyone in the bar to participate.
To the surprise of everyone Neil Diamond himself appeared, and helped to finish the song with the Queen and her lady in waiting. Soon after the Neil Diamond incident a band member from ZZ Top arrived at the fried chicken emporium however the Queen and her staff performed no ZZ Top material. The Queen attended the party for Airmen Pickett
the next day but departed the festivities early and seemed somewhat dismayed about something, perhaps a wrong word or someone not paying the proper respect to her majesty I suspect. Or perhaps the Queen was still upset with a number of subjects who disobeyed her direct order to eat in the bar and not in the dining room. I felt
to dine in the room set aside for just such a purpose and furthermore a table was already set and ready to go just for the Queen and her subjects. Unfortunately this issue became a stumbling point for the remainder of the evening, to the point where a number of subjects left before the obligatory after dinner drink, myself included.
The Oneida election is over however the only information I have to report is on the Vice Chair seat which was claimed by Tina Danforth. This week all the signs will come down and the election hype, and campaigning will be over for another two years. Tribal members should put up signs for the people who are not running for some office and I think the total number of signs would be less then for the people who are running. Take for example the Oneida Business Committee that had four openings, 67 people ran for the four openings with people winning by popular vote only. No run off election. I'm thinking the tribe could refine their election process to include a run off election, which would eliminate everyone but the serious candidates.
Cheryl Purshock is due home on the 25th of July to visit with family and friends and I am looking forward to a personal one on one interview with her that will be in a later newsletter.
That's all the news that is news, see ya.
TWO HOBART COPS KILLED WHEN SQUAD RAMMED BY PICKUP TRUCK
Two Hobart Police officers were killed in the line of duty on Monday July 22nd while waiting at the corner of HWY 54 and the driveway to Bayland Buildings. According to eyewitnesses at the scene a pickup truck westbound on HWY. 54 swerved into the left lane then back to the right and into the officers' squad car waiting at the stop sign killing them both and totally destroying their squad car.
The driver of the pickup truck did not have life threatening injuries and is expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday. The man was heard to say after the accident by witnesses that he intended to do this and wanted to die. Witnesses stated that they heard the pickup truck
speed up just before the impact with the squad car and there were no skid marks. The name of the Green Bay man driving the pickup was not released until 3PM on Tuesday. Tyson N. Kreuscher 27 admitted to witnesses at the scene that he intentionally rammed the squad car. Kreuscher was in Brown County circuit court at 2:30 on Tuesday to answer to a complaint in which formal charges will be reviewed for the accident.
Rock-Fest frenzy 2002 clearly came to a crescendo on Sunday night with the performance of Meat Loaf and his band. In one single performance Mr. Loaf demonstrated his proficiency in singing, acting, guitar playing and stand up comedy. His one hour and forty minute performance left little doubt as to who was the main attraction this year in the Cadot annual music festival. With 25,000
people on hand for the closing act on Sunday night, "Meat" as the crowd came to call him, sang and acted out such songs as Paradise by the dashboard lights, I would do anything for love, and two out of three ain't bad. He took time to interact with the audience between every couple of songs and even in the middle of some others. Though I have only attended four of the Cadot annual concerts, this by far is the best show in that time span in my opinion. I think few would argue with that analogy that attended the concert, however to be fair and balanced, I did hear a few people say that they thought that Poison was the real headliner on Sunday. Poison who
performed in the slot just before Meat Loaf, also put on a stage show with audience interaction and a lot of high five stuff on stage. What this boils down to is a matter of preference and what the masses want. I feel that Meat Loaf appeals to a larger mass of people then Poison, thus the main stream act of choice would be Meat Loaf and rightfully was the closing act.
Cheryl Purshock is returning to her homeland on Wed. night for a visit and will return on Monday July 29th. Purshock is bringing along her daughter Crystal and son Jeremy as well as her grandson Xavier. Husband Steve is back at work in Belleville at his new job managing the kitchen at the local hospital.

MEAT LOAF, I CAME TO KNOW HIM AS SIMPLY MEAT
The Kat and Mick Report has learned that the suspect in the Hobart accident saw the police car parked while going eastbound on Hwy. 54. He turned his truck around and came back the other way for a better shot at hitting them. He told officers that he has been looking for things to ram for a long time.

That's all the news that is news, see ya.
Tyson Kreuscher 27 accused of intentionally ramming a Hobart squad car killing two officers is in a special medical
cell at the Brown County Jail which allows authorities to monitor him at all times in case he tries to commit suicide.
Jean Poquette Hansen celebrated her 40th birthday on Saturday July 27th with a large party at the home of Marie Krohn in the town of ledgeview. Many close friends and
relatives enjoyed the food and music at the party and some relatives came from as far as Florida to attend the festivities. It was a surprise party and Jean was surprised in deed with all her friends on hand. The "Queen" as she is known to many donned Hawaiian garb and joined in for a few drinks while she listened to her life history read over the P.A.
CLICK HERE FOR HISTORY. The party went on from 3 in the afternoon until about 10PM with several of the guests and the queen planning to go bar hopping until closing time.
A near record number of people attended Chicken Night this week with 25 in attendance. The very reserved Chicken Night crowd lined the bar about half way around the room, with no one really getting out of hand this week. Wynona and an unknown bartender, not even a Judd, were on hand serving up drinks for the crew.
Naomi made a brief appearance to show every one her "Ginger" costume. It seems that she was going to attend a Gilligans Island party and she picked Ginger to imitate. She did a very nice job and got her hair real poofy with a special trip to the stylist and also got her nails done in the same color as her long formal

The Brown County Jail, which was built one year ago, is equipped with such amenities to accommodate the needs of such inmates. The Jail also has the ability to hold court via a video hook up to the down town court
house. This was used at least once for Kreuscher who has made three court appearances thus far.
