An early afternoon storm raced through the Town of Oneida Saturday causing damage to the Kat and Mick offices. Wind and rain pelted the facility at about 2:30 PM causing the fall decoration of a corn shock to tip and continue to lean heavily to one side. Onlookers gasped and expressed concern that it may go all the way over crashing to the ground with no concern for who may be in the way. Others speculated that should the worst happen could the landmark be rebuilt in time for the Halloween holiday the reason that the decoration is built annually. No one was evacuated but the shock was later righted by a good stiff push. The KAMR staff would like to extend thank you's to concerned readers who called in to warn us of the impending storm. The newsroom was quite busy and no one really looked outside to see what was going on. The tip was appreciated and everyone went to the basement to be safe from natures fury.
Since Justin Sobieck's motorcycle injury occurred, he has been spending all of his time at home. Even though that the KAMR has reported in a previous issue that it is doubtful that he will start in the Turkey Bowl, Sobieck insists that he will be ready and will start in the yearly ritual played on Poquette Field. Sobieck who now sports a cast and crutches since his surgery has become somewhat of a stand in for the missing daughter figure that Trixie enjoyed for so many years before Brittany shuffled off to college. Sobieck now finds himself participating in the Fat Club meetings and enjoys "hanging out" with the girls. Trixie even took him along to a recent appointment to the beauty shop Trade Secrets where she and Justin had their eyebrows waxed. Justin found the experience to be a pleasurable one and Trixie made another appointment for later when his cast is off so they can both have a pedicure, after leaving the beauty shop they went shopping for new scarf's. The Sobieck girls would have liked to have gone to the wildly popular Darlo's Shear Dementia but with the appointment book jammed up with celebrities there was no room for them. Darlo has however pushed some appointments aside in favor of getting the Kat into her shop to assist her with her failed attempt at hair coloring. The Kat who went through at least three hair coloring kits stopped her own attempts when the result was a mixture of green and gray hair adorning her large melon like head.
The countdown to the Turkey Bowl will start the beginning of November when the sign at Poquette field goes up counting down the days. Two large Turkeys will adorn the sides of the sign which is being painted by artist Trixie Sobieck. When the sign is put up we will get a photo of it for the NEWSLETTER. There's only one week left to get your costume ready for the Halloween Party at Dick and Colleens garage on the 30th. Next Saturday the place will be rocking and rolling with tunes, food, games and prizes as we ring in the Halloween holiday on Sunday Morning. In honor of the event a special playing of H.G. Wells War of the Worlds broadcast will be played at 7PM, it is the original 1938 broadcast with Orson Wells and the "Mercury Theater On-The-Air"! At 8PM dance music will start. Who knows when it will end.

THE HEAVILY DAMAGED CORN SHOCK LEANS PRECARIOUSLY TO ONE SIDE
WITH NO REGARD FOR HIMSELF A KAT AND MICK PHOTOGRAPHER GOES UNDER THE LEANING CORN SHOCK FOR A BETTER SHOT.
THE KATS HAIR A MESS AFTER USING HAIR COLORING KITS MADE BY THE TRIAL AND ERROR CO.
Saturday night was the annual Halloween Party at Dick and Colleens garage / party house. The Party was attended by some regulars who enjoyed themselves as well as newcomers who left with a smile on their faces. Some 50 prizes, prepared by The International Kat of Mystery, were given away through numerous games of "Who am I", Quarter Horse Races, and of course the ever popular costume contest. Colleen outdid herself again as usual supplying everyone with good food ranging from sloppy Joe's to chili with cookies and brownies for treats. Many people were elated to find upon their arrival the scary 1938 version of "The War of the Worlds" playing and listened with ears perked to the words spoken some 60 years ago. People danced and some just moved their arms to the music but for the most part I think most people enjoyed the music fare with one exception. Sports reporter for the KAMR S. Lyle OConnor questioned the play list selected out for the evening calling the stack of C.D.'s waiting to be played "The tower of poor taste". Whitey arrived somewhat late and with a lot of music requests, when I was not able to deliver he said that "the DJ is just a dictator and the power has gone to his head." In a related story Brittany Sobieck who was covered in a previous issue picking up a new boyfriend who is much older then her actually brought the stately gentleman to the party. Earlier we were led to believe that her acquaintance was actually an old man who was smitten by the middle child of the Sobieck family. In actuality the male prospect appears much younger then the stories and may actually be not as close to retirement as earlier thought. Dave, as he calls him self, looks quite young and it is easy to see why Brittany is taken with him, that is, when you look into his eyes and well....... We knew that Sobieck would be bringing Dave to the party and made all the entry ways ADA accessible however he did not seem to need a wheel chair and got around quite well. The couple arrived unadorned in festive attire and left the same way and without any awards as well.
The sign has been erected on Poquette Field with the countdown for the Turkey Bowl. The Sobiecks have agreed to the custodial duties of changing the date every day and are kind enough to allow their electrical system to be used to power the flood lights lighting the sign for night time viewing. Excitement in the neighborhood is growing for the annual event as told by the honking of horns while the construction crew erected the sign. The annual event is a giant boon to the Oneida economy with many people traveling great distances to spend the day in Oneida on Turkey Bowl Day even if they were not able to get tickets to the sports extravaganza. Ten dollars has been raised toward the new electronic scoreboard at the Halloween Party with the donation jar put out by the food counter. The next project will be to construct a thermometer guide to show how much money has been raised to reach the goal. Late word has arrived at the KAMR news room that Dave Poquette will not be able to attend the Turkey Bowl this year due to his female companion Ethel who will have to work on the traditional turkey eating holiday. Poquette who has helped host the famed "Turkey Bowl" since it's inception will be sadly missed at the annual event. Eager to take his place however and always ready to climb the ladder of success no matter who's head is on the rungs is Whitey Cornelius. The meeting to finalize all the changes to the game this year will be held at Sobieck Hall next to Poquette Field and will be on Sunday November 14th. at 2PM. Expected to be in attendance will be the Commissioner, representatives from the broadcast booth, and a representative from marketing. Any one else of course is welcome to sit in and observe. It is not yet known if a bogus stock sale will take place. The new birthday page is out and it can be seen by clicking Birthday.
That's all the news that is news, see ya.
