CLEEN - VICTIM OF THEFT
A katandmick photo
leen Poquette was the victim of theft over the weekend when she returned from a concert to find one of two pink flamingos adorning her campsite missing.
Poquette, 51 the wife of Richard Poquette, Florist Drive in Hobart had spent hours getting her camp just right for the annual gathering at Rock USA in Oshkosh. Lights on the awning, the lighted palm tree, the garden gator, all had been strategically located around the 20 ft by 40 ft campsite rented by her friend Leah Andervde this year. The only thing left were the two flamingos stored in her forward compartment of her 27 ft camper. They were placed prominently in the space leading to her campsite from the access roadway on the west side by this writer who also attended the event. All was well, neighbors set up their site adjoining ours respecting the space set aside for her pink pets. Strangers going by commented on how nice they were and occasionally a passer by snapped a photo with Cleen's pink silent foul.
All was well until we returned from enjoying a show by Tesla when Cleen noticed someone had snatched a flamingo ripping it from it's wire legs and leaving them behind.
The missing flamingo was forced to go without one meal Friday night before being reunited with it's owner on Saturday evening.
Other things far more valuable had been left out in the camp particularly by the neighboring camp site but alas the thieves had chosen the most coveted thing to lift from our site, the much sought after pink flamingo. Only one had vanished while his brother vanquished by
the ordeal of his missing sibling stood alone overlooking the grounds awaiting the return of not only his one and only relative but his best friend as well. Cleen wondered out loud about the heart wrenching loss of her flamingo she had become so attached to and how someone could do such a thing.
Terrible as it was, with no answers as to why such a crime would happen to her Cleen went on and continued to make a happy camp and attend concerts of her choice. A strange thing happened however on Saturday which made Cleen very happy.
A truck had ridden by several times rubber necking and looking the camp over. Finally a guy got out and asked if we were missing a pink flamingo. Alas, Cleen's pink nightmare had ended and she immediately ran to get the details. The fellow camper from down the road offered only one explanation as to why he had separated the pink twins on a whim "I don't know why I did it, we were all drunk". Everyone nodded and seemed to understand and Cleen was just happy to have her camping birds reunited, a tear could be seen dripping from the other flamingo's eye.

5 MAN DAZZLES SMALL GROUP
The local band "5 Man" which includes our own Mike Van Den Heuvel (significant other of Ashley Hansen) performed at Rock USA on Thursday to a small dedicated crowd huddled mostly in front of the main stage at ROCK USA in Oshkosh WI. The band which consists of guitars and drums and a vocalist belting out deep throated gurgling like sounds gave those attending an initiation into local metal band performance.
Van Den Heuvel offered little in vocal back up but never seemed to miss a note on his guitar. The band played for 30 minutes before being chased off stage by roadies setting up for the next band.
