On February 10, 2008 some of Central Wisconsin's finest bands united to help benefit Deb Musch and Anita Plantico (mother and daughter) in their time of need at The Bar in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. Deb and Anita lost their home and possessions due to a devestating fire. They were renters in the town of Grant that did not have renters insurance and needed help to recoup and recover from their total loss.

All proceeds from your purchase of this CD go to this family...THANK YOU!

Benefit to assist fire victims
By Jamie Jung
Daily Tribune staff

On the afternoon of July 29, 2007, Deb Musch and her daughter, Anita Plantico, lost everything. The mother and daughter were renting a home at 2311 100th St. S. in the town of Grant when a devastating fire claimed their home and possessions as well as Anita's dog, Zelda.
They did not have renter's insurance.
"They lost everything," said Travis Plantico, Deb's son and Anita's brother.
Deb is now living with Travis' brother, and Anita is staying with Travis.
"The first thing I did was I bought them each a queen-size bed," Travis said. "I thought after all they had been through, they at least needed to have their own bed.
"And there are a lot of nice people in the community who are helping out."
To further assist the family, a benefit will be held from noon to 10 p.m. Sunday at The Bar, 150 Second St. N. The event will include live music on two stages, raffles, food and beverages. A silent auction, including sports memorabilia autographed by Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre and Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder, also will be held.
Travis said music will be held both upstairs and downstairs at the venue.
"The stage upstairs will have louder live music and downstairs will be more of a coffeehouse setting with acoustic performers," he said.
Bands set to perform include Whiskey River Reunion, The Lizardz, The aTOMix, KGP Conspiracy, Surrender Dorothy and MetalzEdge on the upstairs stage; and The Jack & Connie Duo, Jeff Weavil & Friends, Kosmic Sounds, Pety's Rage and John Cismoski & Mary Panzer on the acoustic stage.
And for local fans of The Lizardz, this will be your final chance to see the group with its current configuration. This will be Travis' final show with the group.
"I'm also a member of KGP Conspiracy, and playing in two bands was too much," the drummer said. "If you want to see me with The Lizardz, this is your last chance."
Admission to the event is free.
If you are unable to attend Sunday's benefit, but would still like to help, donations are being accepted at WoodTrust Bank, PO Box 8000, Wisconsin Rapids WI 54494. Checks should be made payable to Musch-Plantico Benefit Fund.

Fire destroys Grant home
By Deb Cleworth
Daily Tribune Staff
GRANT -- Charred remains are all that's left of a town of Grant home after a fire destroyed it Sunday afternoon.
No one was injured in the fire, but the whereabouts of a dog at the residence were unknown Sunday night.
The renters who lived in the home at 2311 100th St. S. were reported to be at work when the fire started.
Smoke from the blaze could be seen from Eighth Street South and Riverview Expressway.

"Carl was visiting his son and took a ride to check the crops and saw the fire about 3:30 p.m.," said Carol Novack, who owns the home with her husband, Carl Novack. "There were flames all over. He came home to tell me to call the fire department."
Grand Rapids Fire Department Chief Scott Bernette said the call came in at about 3:39 p.m.

"It was fully engulfed when the first engine got here," Bernette said, describing the blaze as a "working structure fire."
The Novacks were at the scene as firefighters from Plover, Rudolph, Nekoosa and Stockton
aided the Grand Rapids department.

"It did go fast," Carol Novack said, her eyes filling with tears.

"I was hoping they could have saved it, but in the back of my mind, I knew they couldn't."
The couple own several rental properties, but Carol Novack said the 12-year-old home was one of her favorites.
"I just liked it," she said.

Firefighters expected to remain on the scene several more hours, Bernette said. He explained crews were in "salvage and overhaul mode," looking for hot spots. A propane tank near the house had been cooled and was not considered dangerous.

"That particular hazard has been taken out of the equation," Bernette said.

Crews also tried to see if any of the renters' property was salvageable.
The home was in a remote location, but that wasn't an issue for firefighters, Bernette said.

"(Wood County) Dispatch has awesome computer-aided mapping," Bernette said.
The absence of nearby fire hydrants wasn't a problem, either.
"We were using a creek right down the road at 100th and Lake," Bernette said.
Grand Rapids fire personnel blocked the street off about a half-mile from the scene.
"(People) don't realize what it takes to actually orchestrate a structure attack," Bernette said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.

they did not have renters insurance, so they will have to earn everything back.
they are looking to buy some good used stuff like furniture, appliances, and probably even smaller stuff like pots, pans, dishes, etc.  if anyone has anything that they have been trying to sell, or knows anyone that has stuff for sale,
please let me know
