minute, Xhonaton Shahollari scored his second goal of the night, on a beautiful

his first goal of the match. Seven minutes later, Jonathon retrieved a loose
ball in the Eagle defensive third, and beat the Jefferson keeper, for an

(Oct 7) The City of
Whitewater Water Utility's semi-annual water main and hydrant flushing program
will begin on Monday, October 12th and will conclude Friday, October
16th. Flushing of water mains is necessary in order to continue to
deliver clean, safe water. If they have repairs more than expected throughout
the week, they may have to continue flushing into the following week.
Flushing of water mains and hydrants can cause some discoloration of
the water. Caution should be exercised in washing of white clothing.
Discoloration of the water due to flushing WILL stain white clothing. They
notify the public in all local media outlets; therefore, they cannot be
responsible for stained clothing. If discoloration is detected, run the cold
water faucet until the discoloration clears. While they are still flushing in
your area the water may take a little while to clear up. You may want to wait
until they have left the area and the water has settled down before running
your water tap.
If reduced pressure is experienced after flushing, you
may have to clean the aerators on your house faucets. They thank you for your
patience and understanding during this water main and hydrant flushing.

(Oct 2) The Whitewater
Boys' Soccer team won its 5th conference match, beating East Troy 3-0!
Roberto Navejas found the back of the Trojan net on an
unassisted goal. Picture courtesy of Bob Mischka.
The Boys' soccer team has been on a roll, winning its
last 4 games in a row. The Whippets had tied East Troy in their previous
meeting and it was expected that this would also be a close match. The coaching
staff felt going into the game that the boys were well prepared for this
contest. As the game began, the Whippets were able to play a solid possession
game and maintained their structure nicely. Coach Menager felt time of
possession and a low number of turnovers would be key, as East Troy was
primarily a counter-attack team. The Whippets did not turn the ball over and
were able to control the midfield time of possession. In the 23rd minute,
Roberto Navejas found the back of the Trojan net on an unassisted goal. The
half played out with Whitewater leading 1-0. Going into the second half,
Whitewater maintained its momentum with a strong defensive play and aggressive
midfield marking. In the 60th minute, Xhonaton Shahollari scored his first of 2
goals, assisted by Jake Riemer. Whitewater continued its offensive pressure,
and in the 74th minute, Xhonaton Shahollari scored off a nice passing assist by
Thomas McManaway. The Trojan attack was kept in check for the rest of the
match. The Whippet defense played its usual solid game, and held off the East
Troy attack for the remainder of the contest for the 3-0 victory. Jimmy Cushman
was in net for the first half with 2 saves and Michael Fernandez played the
second half with 7 saves. Additional notable play was that of Dineth
Gunawardena, Victor Fernandez, and James Dedrich, with solid play in the
defensive and middle third.
The JV Squad also had a very good game,
defeating East Troy 2-0.
Next Tuesday, the Whippets will host
conference rival, Jefferson. Whitewater is now 5-2-1 in conference and 6-4-2
overall. (Rich Gunter)

voter photo ID law was enacted in 2011 but remained blocked by court order
until earlier this year when the US Supreme Court declined to review a decision
by the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit upholding the ID law. It is
critical that all voters understand what the law requires, especially students
who wish to vote in the Whitewater community next year. Make sure your vote
counts! Learn what photo ID you need to bring with you to the polls on Election
