Editor's note: We were preparing to move into a new building at the end of 2012 and we were taking inventory of everything in our old facility.  That included thousands of hours of old videotape. We found this story and we're reposting it now that KISS has announced its final tour.

The rock band KISS performed at the BOK Center this week.  That inspired us to search our archive for stories about the band.

We found one, but it doesn't focus on the band, it focuses on four fans who got into a little trouble.

Rex Daugherty filed this report on June 15, 1978, about a talent show performance at Oologah High School that got four students paddled, a teacher upset and a superintendent shaking his head.
