(Aug 25) The Whippet soccer team traveled to Division 1 Janesville-Craig.

Coach John Chenoweth: "Our varsity team was able to apply some lessons learned from our earlier game this week and came out playing much better fundamental soccer. It was a highly contested game throughout with a 0-0 tie going into the half. The Whippets played with a lot of confidence in our short passing game and used strong communication to help play a much better defensive game. Hiqmet Dauti turned in a strong performance in the second half finding the back of the net twice for the only goals of the evening. Jameson Hutchins also had a great night putting in some really strong rotations in the defensive back line. And Michael Fernandez had another solid night in goal, picking up the shutout along with seven saves.

We were also able to schedule Junior Varsity and Junior Varsity 2 games against Janesville-Craig, so all of our student-athletes, except a few with injuries, were able to get 60+ minutes of game time. Between the two JV games we picked up 7 goals with one win and one tie. Particularly helpful for the season ahead, we were able to get some good playing time on JV for several players that we will need to have ready to go for varsity over the course of the season.

The Whippets will be back out on the road next week for a couple of long bus trips to Columbus and Watertown before our home opener on Tuesday, September 30.

Please join us in supporting the Whippet Football program Friday night, Aug. 26, in Perkins Stadium at UW-Whitewater. The soccer team will be cheering the team on and running a 50/50 raffle.

Whitewater 2, Janesville-Craig 0; Whitewater 0 2 - 2 Janesville-Craig 0 0 - 0 - Second Half Scoring: Dauti, H. (x2)

(Aug 25) Whippet Football program sends out a big thank you to UWW Head Coach Kevin Bullis and UWW for allowing the Whippets to run their walk through Thursday practice at Perkins Stadium.

The Whippets host Beloit Turner tomorrow night and would love to see Perkins Stadium filled with Whippet fans!

As part of the walk through, Coach Bullis had the Whippet Football team gather around the rock at Perkins Stadium and explained the Warhawks' "Pound the Rock" tradition and meaning behind that tradition. Coach Bullis explained only through hard work and a commitment to that hard work will one find success in whatever life throws your way. Whether it is football, school, or other life situations, instant gratification won't likely be found. Rather a commitment to the process will help you find success.

UWW Coach Bullis had the Whippet Football team gather around the rock, like the Warhawks do at the end of the message, and do the "Pound the Rock" on breakdown!

(Aug 25) Campus policies and state and federal guidelines require that University of Wisconsin-La Crosse officials, not the police, handle sexual assault allegations.
The issue of sexual assault is in the headlines after a former UW-L wrestling coach filed a lawsuit last week against UW-Whitewater. Tim Fader, now the UW-Eau Claire wrestling coach, claimed that when he was Whitewater’s coach he was retaliated against by administrators after he reported an allegation of sexual assault to police instead of university officials.

Coach John Chenoweth: "The Whippet players were ready for action right from the starting whistle and maintained an even attack while shutting down the Elkhorn offense who had the advantage of a stiff wind at their back. Brian Reyes scored a header off a beautiful, long-ball cross from Thomas McManaway in the 32nd minute to put the Whippets in the lead. The team held the shut out and went into half-time with a 1-0 lead. Coming out of the first half we knew Elkhorn would ratchet up their play to try to pull the game back. Unlucky for us, they were able to find the goal only 32 seconds into the first half. Five minutes later they found the back of the net again and continued to apply pressure. We held Elkhorn scoreless for the next 20 minutes with exceptional work from our defenders and goal-keeper. Elkhorn went up 3-1 with 20 minutes to go and we started to run out of steam. The final score was 5-1 with Elkhorn scoring 2 goals in the last 5 minutes of the game.

While we were working towards a better outcome than the final score showed, there were many positive take-aways with great play from both starters and subs.

The team will regroup, work on a few items and get ready for our next game, away at Division 1 Janesville-Craig on Thursday night."

(Aug 24) REMINDER - First Dirk Seibold Alumni Meet Saturday August 27th!

Coach Nelson: "Whitewater played very well in their matches as they moved the ball well and were very aggressive at the net. Amanda and Ali at singles, and Milena Maroske and Treder Whitney at doubles took control of their matches right from the start and never let go.

Maggie Hough and Hannah Delaney at 2 doubles and Odessa Sonn and Sophie Olson at 3 doubles also played very well winning their matches in straight sets. Sydney Treder had a few things to work on in her 2nd set, but she stepped it up and finished it off. Hailey Lohmeier was playing only her second singles match ever and it allowed her to work on parts of her game.

Whitewater won't be in action again until Monday, Aug. 29 as they host Jefferson at 4pm."

(Aug 23) The Whitewater Unified School District School Board unanimously approved on Monday its 2016-17 preliminary budget, which is projected to include a slight reduction in the tax levy.
Jaeger commented on the preliminary budget. “One of the messages we shared when we were going around discussing the operational referendum two years ago was that it would not have an impact on taxes, meaning you would not see an increase in your taxes,” he said. “It is good to deliver on that message for a second year in a row, with another projected decrease in the tax levy.” For more from the Board meeting from Chris Welch, dailyunion.com .

(Aug 20) Artists from Studio 84 at Milwaukee Art Museum

(L-R) Kelly (volunteer) Kaitlyn Laird (artist) Brin Martin (artist) Brad Houdek (artist) Ricky (artist), Jamie Scharf (artist), Halie Johnson (volunteer) Maynard Griep (artist) Chris (volunteer) Juliet (volunteer) Matt Schuh (artist), Joseph Kienbaum (artist), Debbie Franzen (artist) Jessica Barden (artist) Kelsey Grau (artist) Judy (volunteer) Sheila (volunteer) Nick Bursh (artist) Kristen Senft (Studio 84 staff)

Twelve of Studio 84's artists traveled to Milwaukee Art Museum for a guided tour of Modern Art and Haitian art exhibits on Thursday.

Artists learned how other artists often use throw away materials to make art and often draw upon everyday life for ideas to paint.
A special thank you to the following businesses who sponsored the trip: John Pecha of American Family Insurance, Kienbaum Iron/Metal, Burtness Chevrolet, Kollwelter Farms, and Barb & Scott Kienbaum family. Other funding for the trip came from the silent auction of a collaborative large scale painting the artists did and a bake sale the artists did at the Whitewater City Market.

(L-R) Jamie Scharf, Jessica Barden, Debbie Franzen, Brad Houdek found this painting of a farmers market called Crowded Market by Laurent Casimir (1928-1990). Something Studio 84's artists are familiar from participating at the Whitewater City Market selling their art.

Maynard Griep and volunteer Halie Johnson take time to check out the Claude Monet.

(L-R) Joseph Kienbaum, Brin Martin and Matt Schuh (hiding amongst the ladies) pretending to be part of the painting.

Kelsey Grau, although blind, was having a great time while she listened carefully to descriptions of the art work.

Jessica Barden found this Picasso rooster she could relate to since she has been inspired by Picasso in several of her pieces.

(Aug 19) Mark your calendar now for the Annual Fire Department Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser - Sunday, Sep. 11th!

(Aug 17) The Whitewater Arts Alliance's Cultural Arts Center will host its second annual "Artrageous Birds" exhibit from September 1 to September 25. The gallery will be open to all art and bird lovers from Noon to 5 p.m. on Thursdays through Sundays. The exhibit is free and open to the public at 402 West Main Street at the Cultural Arts Center.

Louise Fuerstenberg with her art from 2015 show

The exhibit features more than 55 art pieces by 19 artists who are eligible to win one of several awards: Award of Excellence I ($200), Award of Excellence II ($100), Award of Excellence III ($75), the People's Choice Award ($50), and Honorable Mentions. Awards will be given at a reception on Sunday, September 25 at 4 p.m.

Marilyn Fuerstenberg, Chair of the exhibit and Whitewater Arts Alliance Board Member, said, "The Artrageous Birds exhibit was created to help Whitewater promote its status as a Bird City. I am so pleased with the turnout and quality of bird artwork."

The City of Whitewater gained its Wisconsin Bird City designation in 2014. The Whitewater Urban Forestry Commission (UFC) is responsible for implementing and fulfilling the requirements to maintain this designation.

Bird City Wisconsin mobilizes citizens and public officials who already know that birds are more than beautiful - they are significant. A Bird City is a community whose government educates its citizens about birds while implementing sound conservation practices. Whitewater is one of them! Bird City Wisconsin encourages its communities to address the decline of urban birds like the Chimney Swift and Purple Martin, species that have declined in Wisconsin by 32.3% and 92.7%, respectively, over the last 40 years. They support our community in our efforts to protect and manage green space, build and erect nesting structures, landscape with native plants, reduce threats like collisions, and generally make urban areas friendlier for breeding, wintering, and migrating birds.

(Aug 14) The fall semester move-in at The UWW is scheduled for Sunday, September 4th. This letter is a reminder that during this time, all mobile and portable signs are prohibited unless otherwise approved by the zoning administrator.

This restriction is due to the high volume of traffic the city receives during move-in day. Restricting signage will not only help reduce confusion for drivers but also improve safety for drivers and pedestrians. Only temporary (mobile/portable) signs properly approved by the UWW and approved by the City are authorized.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time. If you have any questions please feel free to contact: Chris Munz-Pritchard Neighborhood Services Director / City Planner / Zoning Administrator, City of Whitewater 262-473-0143.

(Aug 9) REMINDER - Cultural Arts Center to Host one Show with Multiple Artists in August; Fiber Art and Quilting Featured

Fiber art by the Whitewater Fiber Guild and quilts by artist Kent Williams, of Madison, will be displayed at the Whitewater Arts Alliance's Cultural Arts Center at 402 West Main Street from Thursday, August 4 through Sunday, August 28. The gallery will be open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.

There will be a reception, which is free and open to the public, on the show's last day, Sunday August 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. with the artists attending.

"The texture, colors and forms of this show will astound visitors as they enjoy a rich variety of fiber art and quilts," said Linda Long, President of the Whitewater Arts Alliance.

The members of the Whitewater Fiber Guild will be putting on an exhibit of fiber art with a variety of handmade and self-designed articles. Carna Grover, President of the Whitewater Fiber Guild said, "The work we do with fiber is extremely varied, such as we have members who do quilting, embroidery, crocheting, knitting, twisting (with knotting and stitching), felting, various types of weaving, spinning, hardanger, needlepoint, lace making, jewelry making (held together by fiber), dying, sewing and /or tailoring, rug making etc., plus designing and making modern fiber art pieces."

The Guild has decided to keep this exhibit strictly to items that are made whether wholly or partly, of fiber.

One of Kent Williams' quilts "Oh Gee"

The other artist exhibiting, Kent Williams, will share a retrospective of his 15-year career as an art quilter. Always on the lookout for new ways of generating patterns, Williams has recently turned to the computer, using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to create his designs. But he remains best known for his pieced quilts, which consist of hundreds, if not thousands, of individual pieces of fabric.

Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (NYSE: AAP), a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider in North America serving both professional installer and do-it-yourself customers, has opened its first store in Whitewater at 1184 West Main Street. A grand opening celebration will occur on Thursday, August 25th, and include food, music and an 11 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony.

The location was chosen because of its convenience to Commercial garages. It is also a popular area for car owners who enjoy working on cars.

Nick Snyder is the store General Manager who works with 10 other Team Members at the new Whitewater location. A 16-year veteran of the automotive industry, Snyder has been with the Advance Auto Parts Team for nine years. “Advance Auto Parts is committed to serving our customers, as well as the communities in which they and our Team Members live. As part of this commitment, we are pleased to announce a $1,000 check will be donated to United Way,” said Snyder.

The new store offers customers a wide range of the highest quality parts from recognized national brands as well as the exclusive offering of Carquest® brand products, which are manufactured to meet the needs of professional installers. The product offering is available in-store and online at http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/home. Products ordered online can be picked up at this location as well as other Advance store locations within 30 minutes. Commercial customers can have parts delivered to their business.

Advance Auto Parts offers convenient services, such as free installation of a new battery with purchase on most vehicles. Snyder and his team can enroll shoppers in the money-saving SPEED PERKS membership program – the industry’s best loyalty program. “We appreciate our customers’ business and want to make it simple and easy to earn a reward for shopping at Advance,” said Snyder. In addition, when customers need help with repairs, they can access online videos and audio podcasts on the “Advance Know-How” section of the company website.

Advance Auto Parts also does its part in helping to keep the environment clean by offering a used motor oil and battery recycling program. During regular store hours, customers may drop off used motor oil and batteries– ensuring that these materials don’t end up in landfills where they could harm the environment.

“This new store 11 Team Members are looking forward to serving customers better than anyone else,” said Ted Forrest, District Manager for Advance Auto Parts. “The right parts at the right price are as important as the right advice to finish the job.”

The store is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

(July 10) Every child deserves to have the supplies that are needed for school each year. But for some families, providing them is a struggle. The Whitewater Arts Alliance Board invites you to bring much needed school supplies to the Cultural Arts Center (402 W Main) whenever you are coming to the building in July and August.

These supplies can be everything from crayons, rulers, scissors, colored pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, backpacks. . . they need everything! They will distribute them to the five schools in the Whitewater Unified School District right before school starts. (Suggestion: Shopko has some amazing sales on school supplies during August!)

The Board has also provided in the past a small contingency fund for each school for children that might need help with lunch money, a field trip, money to join an athletic team, etc. So if it is easier for you to contribute this way, please just send a check payable to Linda Long to 1560 W Wildwood Rd., Whitewater, WI 53190.
