Terry Michael - Weekdays 6a-10a
My days in radio started way back when we still played 45 records on the air, in 1981. I graduated from Park City High School in Montana back in 1981. FFA was a big part of my life and being a state public speaking winner led me to radio. I started my career in Laurel Montana and had stops in Livingston, Polson, Bozeman, Billings, Portland Oregon, Nebraska City Nebraska and finally landed in Gillette Wyoming. I called play by play for high school and college sports for 27 years before taking over the morning show on Fox Country. My wife Gina and daughter Jenikah and dog Gizmo make up our Gillette family and we also have two boys Rob in Sioux City Iowa and Jeremy in Livingston Montana. We love this community and area and hope to grow older here.
Dan Sherwood - Weekdays 2 - 6pm
After growing up in Wisconsin and graduating from college in Minnesota my journey in the world of radio has taken me to a few different places including Gillette......twice! I am glad to be back in Gillette, I've always heard "there is just something that grows on you" and I have to say that is very true! I live a pretty simple life, just like most guys I enjoy sports, my favorite teams pretty much all call Minnesota home (except the St. Louis Rams). A few random facts about me are, I am scared of public speaking (at least with radio I don't have people looking at me!) I am engaged to be married in late 2015 at that time my lovely better half will join me in Gillette and I cannot wait for her to enjoy the area as much as I have!! I have always enjoyed country music and I am so excited and proud to bring you the latest and best in country music to you afternoons from 2-6!

Get Fat, Die Young!
If you haven't yet grasped the danger of obesity, Canadian researchers have attempted to make it easy for you. Become obese and you can pretty much count on slashing about eight years off your life. Oh -- and the last 19 years of your life will be plagued with disease and bad health. Researchers compiled data from roughly 4,000 people of varying body weights, then created a computer model that estimates the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease and assesses how weight affects life expectancy. They found that severely obese men between 20 and 39 years of age lost 8.4 years of life compared to their healthy-weight counterparts. Women lost 6.1 years. Further, those men experienced 18.8 more years of ill heath; the figure for women was 19.1. And the younger the individual the worse the potential impact: Those in their 60s and 70s who are severely obese were found to have lost one year, but dealt with 7 more years of ill health. Lead author Dr. Steven Grover says, "In terms of life-expectancy, we feel being overweight is as bad as cigarette smoking."
Gamers Down Under Move to Ban Bible
A group of Australian gamers, furious over the decision by local retailers to ban the video game "Grand Theft Auto V," have started a petition to ban the Bible. The petition, posted Dec. 4 on Change.org, has already attracted more than 20,000 signatures. In an obvious parody of arguments in favor of banning video games, the petition claims the Bible "encourages readers to murder woman for entertainment" by "commit(ting) sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get 'god' points." It calls on Australian retailers, including Target, to pull the holy book from their shelves. Incidentally, nearly 50,000 people signed an anti-GTA 5 petition, which calls the game "misogynistic" and responsible for "fueling the epidemic of violence experienced by so many girls and women in Australia."
You Get What You Pay For?
Here's a pro tip: If anyone ever offers you free eye surgery -- RUN! Authorities ordered an investigation today after at least 24 poor and elderly people went blind following cataract surgeries performed at a free medical camp run by a charity in northern India. The operations were performed in early November on 130 patients who were all older than 50. Some of the patients reported this week that they'd lost their eyesight or were suffering infections. Doctors in Amritsar are treating some of the patients, but say it's unlikely any will regain their sight. Police have launched an investigation, and detained at least one doctor in Gurdaspur.
Best Way to Get Rid of a Mugger
A Georgia woman managed to fend off a mugger -- by throwing up on him! Reportedly, the woman was walking to her car after work around 10:30pm in the Georgia Square Mall parking lot when a man in a ski mask came from behind a vehicle. "The male struck in her face and put his hand on her throat while pushing her up against another vehicle," according to a police report. She said that during a struggle over her purse, she threw up on the suspect. That was apparently enough to convince him to leave. Police say he let go of her and drove off in a silver sedan.
PR Nightmare Made Easy!
Want to make the world hate your company? Just fire a pregnant woman for taking too many bathroom breaks. When Dawn Steckmann, an employee at cellphone chip manufacturer Maxim Integrated Products in Beaverton, Ore., told her supervisor she was pregnant in 2011, she says he told her not to worry about clocking out during her more-frequent bathroom breaks. But when she became pregnant again in 2013, a bladder issue that arose during her first pregnancy had her going even more frequently and urgently -- so much so that stopping to clock out would have caused her to have an accident. But the company wasn't having any of that so, despite ten years of loyal service, they fired her. Reportedly, Steckmann's supervisor and the HR manager called her into a meeting, chided her for not clocking out, and fired her. She claims the HR manager said that she could have been watching movies during her frequent breaks, and that her supervisor equated her bathroom behavior to stealing because "not clocking out to use the restroom is stealing from the company." So she's suing for $406,000 in lost wages and damages, and she wants her job back!
What the What?
In what may be the oversight of the year, it seems Penn State University didn't delete Jerry Sandusky's name from its list of season ticket holders. As a result, Sandusky's home received a letter which read: "Dear Gerald A: Congratulations on being identified as one of the elite college football fans in the nation. You have worked diligently to separate yourself by exhibiting unrivaled tenacity, character, and loyalty." The letter goes on to ask him to renew his season tickets and is signed by head football coach James Franklin. Penn State released a statement about the letter, explaining that a mass mailing went out to about 30,000 people and stating, "Clearly, a mistake was made and our database needs further updating and cross-referencing."
A British crook who thought he had sniffed out a good score ended up blowing it. He made off with a wad of tissue instead of the cash he thought he had grabbed.
Michael Hogg and an accomplice were sneaking around a neighborhood in Hartlepool, England when Hogg spotted what he thought was a stack of cash on a windowsill. The men smashed the glass, but were busted before they could flee the scene -- and before they realized that their big haul was a box of novelty facial tissue printed to look like English pounds.
Hogg's court appointed attorney didn't bother claiming innocence, preferring to call the incident "an offense borne more out of stupidity than involving any significant planning. He walked away feeling very stupid."
Bozo criminal for today comes from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where police had no leads in a residential burglary in which a large number of guns were stolen. Then, they received a phone call from the victim. He told the cops he had just visited a Facebook page of a “friend.” And on that page, our bozo had posted pictures of the guns he had stolen from his “friend’s” house. Bad idea. He’s now been charged with aggravated burglary, larceny of a firearm and tampering with evidence.
From the International Bozo File in Morelia, Mexico. A group of bozo crooks broke into a cell phone store and made away with several phones. One problem, they only stole the hollow display phones that are completely useless for making calls, leaving behind the real cell phones and cash in another part or the shop.
Bozo criminal for today comes from Concord, California, where bozo Terrol Casey had successfully robbed a number of banks by concealing his face with a ski mask and threatening the teller with a gun. Cops had little to go on, except for the unusual tattoo, which appeared to be a dark blotch, on his wrist. A former girlfriend recognized the blotch and came forward to identify him. She may have had an ulterior motive, though. That blotch on his wrist used to be her name…he had it tattooed over at the request of his new girlfriend. You know what they say about a woman scorned. He’s under arrest.
Bozo criminal for today comes from Largo, Florida, where bozo Thomas Taylor was to appear in court for a pretrial hearing on charges of selling cocaine. As he was passing through the courthouse metal detector, he spotted an expensive watch that the man behind him had placed into basket of the machine. He snatched it and went on to his court appearance. When the man complained that his watch was missing, the security tape was played back and our bozo was identified. He was arrested in the courtroom and charged with grand theft.
From Chesapeake, Virginia, comes the story of bozo Nathaniel Ferguson who pulled off a heist at a local Sears store, stealing nine iPods and two containers containing donations for needy military families. For reasons known only to the Bozo Mind, he recorded the whole thing on his cell phone. He then sent that video to an ex-girlfriend, offering to give her one of the iPods as a gift. Instead of calling him back, she called the cops. He’s under arrest.
Bozo criminal for today comes from the International File in Linz, Austria. An unidentified bozo was trying to break into a nursery when his foot got caught in a crack as he was entering through a window. There he was, stuck, half in and half out of the building. Not seeing any other way out of his predicament, he maneuvered around so that he could reach his cell phone and called…the cops! They were glad to come by and free him before arresting him.
From Deltona, Florida, comes the story of two teenage bozos who were walking down the street at 4 AM when a patrol car approached. They told the officer they were looking for a friend’s house but were having trouble finding it. They then asked for a ride home, but not before telling him they were aspiring rappers and performing a little rap and dance routine for him. It was then the officer noticed an electronic device and power cord stuffed into one of our bozos pants. A quick search of their pants turned up several cell phones and GPS devices, and a package of Pop Tarts. All of which had been reported stolen in a number of vehicle break-ins in the neighborhood. They’re busted!
Bozo criminal for today comes from Salt Lake City, Utah, where bozo Robert Baldwin was pulled over by the cops for driving erratically and not having his lights on. It was when the officer asked if he was having some sort of problem that he came up with the Bozo Excuse of the Month. He told the officer that he was from the planet Alpha Omega and he was just "getting his binge on." The officer didn’t see the humor in his answer. He’s been charged with driving under the influence.
A drunk Florida man led cops on a high-speed chase – that ended with him falling on his face.
James Keck was pulled over for driving erratically, and smelled strongly of alcohol when a deputy approached him. But when the officer asked for his license, the 57-year-old said, "You're going to have to chase me" and put the pedal to the metal, careening through side streets in a residential neighborhood at a high speed.
Keck eventually pulled into the driveway of his home, exited his vehicle and fell face-down on the ground, where he was arrested without further incident. Since it was his third arrest for driving under the influence, he now faces felony charges.
Officials at a British high school got chippy with one of their students – by threatening to suspend him for selling chips and snacks to other kids ... a violation of the school's healthy-food rules.
Tommie Rose was inspired to start a business after watching numerous reality TV shows, so he decided to buy snacks in bulk at a wholesale shop and dole them out to his friends before and after class. Things went so well that he was able to hire two assistants from his class, but administrators weren't so sweet on the idea, and are holding a 10-day suspension over his head.
A spokesman for the school said, "We admire this pupil's entrepreneurship but school is not the place to set up a black market of fizzy drinks, sweets and chocolates. Our high standards are set out to pupils and their parents at the start of the school year."
Talk about a speedy delivery … a mail carrier in Texas was arrested for allegedly selling meth … out of his mail truck.
Police say Edward Flores, a 21-year employee of the U.S. Postal Service and the husband of the postmaster in Lorena, Texas, was dealing meth out of his home and his mail truck while on duty.
Police reportedly seized $17,000 worth of meth from Flores' home in a raid last week.
McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara told the Waco Tribune that Flores' wife, Allena, was likely not involved. “As far as we can tell, she was not aware of it,” McNamara said
Bozo criminal for today comes from the International File in Cape Town, South Africa where surveillance cameras caught our bozo criminal as he prowled around the back yard of a residence. Then you see him fleeing in terror and leaping over the fence to make his excape. Finally, the source of his fear comes into the frame. A tiny Yorkshire terrier, weighing no more than six pounds. Police are looking for a thief with cynophobia, the fear of dogs.
Bozo criminal for today comes from Edwardsville, Illinois, where bozo Carl Carpenter pulled aside another car and asked for directions. When the other driver rolled down her window to talk to him, he flashed a gun and demanded money. The woman sped away, with our bozo following behind. She called 911 and the operator told her to drive to a nearby police station, which she did. With our bozo on her tail, staying with her until she reached the station. He’s under arrest.
Bozo criminal for today comes from Elkhart, Indiana. Bozo John Warren was spotted in a cemetery by an off-duty police officer who was jogging by. He watched as our bozo, totally naked, got back into his truck and drove away. He took down our bozo’s license number and when he paid him a little visit to ask why he was naked in a cemetery, he gave the officer our Bozo Excuse of the Month. He told him he had stopped to check on his in-law’s grave, but he had been golfing all day long and his underwear was wet, so he undressed in his truck. And, as to why he got out of the truck naked, he said it was because he wanted to look at the flowers and didn’t have his glasses. He’s been charged with indecent exposure.
Our bozo for today violated Bozo Rule Number 22119: Before pulling a crime, do your homework. Bozo Kate Davis was returning to England on a flight from Jamaica and as she tried to pass a set of golf clubs through customs an agent noticed something strange about them on x-ray. Then, making conversation with her, he asked her what her handicap was. She stared back at him blankly and asked him to repeat the question. When he did, she responded that she didn’t have any disability. Oops. The clubs were drilled open and found to be filled with cocaine. She’s busted!
From Pueblo, Colorado, comes the story of bozo Manuel Garcia who was speeding down a steep hill when he ran a red light, narrowly missing an oncoming Lexus. He then swerved and ran smack into the side of a police patrol car, miraculously receiving only minor injuries. He was charged with DUI. Now, just what makes this story Bozo-worthy? The fact that he was riding a skateboard at the time.
A Florida cop apparently forgot which side of the law he's was on and now he's out of a job.
While responding to a burglary at a convenience store, sheriff's deputy Ernesto McCloud was caught on surveillance camera stuffing a $10 DVD into his shirt. He later admitted to stealing the video and said he did so because he hadn't seen the movie. He was charged with petty theft but also armed burglary because he had his firearm with him at the time.
Following the charges, McCloud resigned from the force. And no, we don't know what movie he tried to steal.
From Brockton, Massachusetts. A woman was robbed at gunpoint by three men who burst into her apartment. It was when she made a positive ID on one of the suspects that he revealed his true identity as a bozo. When she picked him out of a lineup, he blurted out, “How could she tell it was me? I had a mask on!” Busted!
From London, Kentucky, where 37 year-old Deborah Ward was taken into arrest as part of a drug investigation. She, along with her male companion, was found to be in possession of 3,37 grams of crystal meth as well as a pair of digital scales. This in itself would not be newsworthy. It was her wardrobe choice that ultimately landed her in the Bozo Hall of Fame. When she was arrested she was wearing an “I [heart] Crystal Meth” T-shirt. Busted!!
From East Brookfield, Massachusetts, where bozo Noreen Miller was pulled over after an officer noticed her driving erratically. She smelled of alcohol and he saw an open pint of vodka in her purse. It was when he requested that she get out of the car that she came up with the Bozo Question of the Week. She asked the officer if this was going to take long, as she was already late for her Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. She’ll have to re-schedule. She’s under arrest.
We have today our first ever Bozo Incompetence Award. From the International File in Buenos Aires, Argentina, comes the story of bozo counterfeiter Marcos Ribles who was on trial for printing up some fake 100 Peso Argentinian notes as well as a fake U.S. $50 bill. The judge looked at the bills and said they had such shoddy printing and poor quality paper that no one would ever think they were real. In fact, they were so bad, he dismissed all charges against our hapless bozo.
Bozo criminals for today come from Boca Raton, Florida, where police were called to an apartment complex after residents reported a possible break-in. One of our bozos had been seen entering an apartment through a window while his accomplice used a cell phone to shine light inside. The cops quickly nabbed our "inside" bozo and as they were questioning him, he received a text message from our "outside" bozo, advising him that he was hiding from the cops near the swimming pool. They’ve both been charged with burglary and possession of marijuana.
Bozo criminal for today comes from Santa Rosa, California, where 28 year-old Kayte Thompson and three of her girlfriends stopped at a convenience store to buy beer. As Kayte reached into the cooler Bozo Paul Ellis came up behind her and snatched her wallet from her other hand. He made a quick exit through the front door with Kayte in hot pursuit. As he jumped on his bicycle to attempt his getaway, Kayte tossed the 12-pack of Miller Lite bottles shot-put style in his direction. She scored a direct hit, knocking our bozo off his bicycle. He’s busted!
