(Sep 2) The UW-Whitewater
Circle K club, the college level of Kiwanis, is proud to be co-sponsoring the
September 18th blood drive.
Due to the low levels of blood donated in the past, there
is an increased need for blood. More than 900 people, daily, in the
Mid-American Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross, need this gift of
life. The need for human blood never takes a holiday. When someone you love is
in need, being turned away because there is not enough blood of their type, is
just UNACCEPTABLE. Supplies are very low right now and it is up to us to make
sure the supply can meet demand even in a crisis!
Your next opportunity
to help save lives by giving blood is the upcoming Whitewater Community Blood
Drive on Friday, September 18th, from Noon to 6pm at the Starin Park Community
Center - 504 W. Starin Road.
Call 1-800-RED CROSS (733-2767) OR go
on-line to make an
appointment. DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOURSELF! HELP SOMEONE ELSE!
donor card or driver's license or two other forms of ID are required at
check-in. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.
Donors must be at least 17-years-old and weigh 110 pounds or more. It isn't
necessary for donors to know their blood type to donate.

(Sep 2) Janesville's
Raven's Wish Gallery is pleased to announce a solo art exhibition by Karolyn
Alexander of Whitewater.
"Beyond Crayola" is a collection of watercolor, collage,
and acrylic abstract paintings representing Alexander's ongoing mission to
"make surfaces more COLORful."
Karolyn Alexander has enjoyed mixing
colors and making plain surfaces more colorful since her first box of Crayola
crayons. As a youngster she experimented with creating new colors by layering
one color of crayon over another. An early retirement from UW-Whitewater
allowed her to focus on creating art and in April of 2003 she began studying
watercolor with the late Marilyn Keating at L'Atelier Art Studio in Janesville.
Since then she has also worked in collage and most recently in acrylic.
Karolyn's book, "Watercolor Cookbook - Recipes for Mixing Delicious
Color," includes tips on mixing watercolor paints and more than 60 full color
photographs of her watercolor paintings. She frequently teaches adult
watercolor and collage classes in both Janesville and Whitewater.
artist reception for Karolyn will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm on September 11th
at Raven's Wish Gallery, 101 W. Milwaukee Street in Janesville. The exhibition
will hang through September 30th. The gallery is open from 10 am to 6 pm Monday
through Friday, 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, and during the summer from 11 am to
3 pm on Sunday. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Coach Kathy Bullis: "The tourney hosted many quality
teams. To start the first day the Whippets competed in pool play. They lost to
Randolph, Hamilton, Catholic Central and Platteville. The second day the
Whippets once again played in pool play with 3 other teams with similar pool
play records, which still provided very tough competition in Waterloo,
Deerfield, and Edgar. The Whippets unfortunately lost three more matches.
In the last portion of the tourney the Whippets played in a single
elimination bracket. The Whippets were able to keep their heads up, and
defeated Central Wisconsin Christian for their first victory of the season.
After the win, the Whippets went up against Deerfield again. Unable to build on
the momentum of the win the Whippets weren't able to defeat Deerfield.

(Aug 30) ACT recently
released national and state scores for the graduating class of 2015. Locally,
WHS scored above the state average in all four areas tested and in the overall
composite score. WHS also showed significant improvement since 2011. "I
am extremely proud of our recent graduates and staff for our achievement on the
ACT test," stated Principal Doug Parker. "The results are truly from all the
hard work Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our whole school community can be
proud of these results knowing it takes everyone working together to achieve
success." When compared to other area schools by the Janesville Gazette, WHS
fared very well. In a comparison of 15 local school districts, Whitewater's
scores were second to only Williams Bay and 0.9 points ahead of third place
Lake Geneva Badger.
Ranking of Area Districts by Janesville Gazette:
Williams Bay 24.1; Whitewater 23.5; Lake Geneva Badger 22.6; Evansville 22.5;

(Aug 29) WHS Football
team travelled to Columbus for the second game of the season - Whippets 7 -
Coach Tom Grosinske: "We are happy with how hard
our athletes played at Columbus. We were in a fairly tight game through
halftime and our kids kept battling all night in sloppy conditions.
Unfortunately, not sustaining our blocks and missed tackles allowed Columbus to
pull away. Numerous turnovers from both teams allowed for opportunities,
however we did not capitalize on our end. We need to get the ball moving on the
ground by handling our Level 1 blocks cleanly, moving into Level 2 and
attacking the hole when it does open. We had some pass game success, but not
enough to make up for our running game. Defensively, we need to generate an
even greater push at the point of attack and have our LBs ready to meet and
then defeat the runner at the hole by hitting low and bringing the ball carrier
to the ground.
Although the final box score may not show it, we were
much more pleased by the energy and passion our kids showed this week compared
to last. It was a dogfight in the mud and our kids battled throughout the
evening. We now need to combine this competitive fire with more accountability
in assignment on both sides of the ball along with special teams for a more
complete game at home this next Friday against McFarland. We look forward to
playing our first home game and would love our Whippet fans to come out to
Perkins stadium to cheer us on."

(Aug 28) Thursday night
the Whitewater Boys soccer team travelled for their first conference match of
the season against the Blue Devils of Evansville.
File picture courtesy of Bob Mischka
Coach Menager expected another very tough match. The
game played very fast and physical for the entire first half with no scoring
but a total of 25 shots taken by the combined teams. The second half proved to
be very different from the first half. The Blue Devils attack was able to solve
the Whippet defense and scored 4 goals in 15 minutes. Whitewater was able to
respond with 2 goals by Roberto Navejas in the 65th minute and Xhonathan
Shaholarri in the 83rd minute. Coach Menager felt the team lost its composure
and Evansville was able to take advantage. He was pleased that his squad did
not give up and was able to out their first 2 goals of the season on the board.
The Whippets will next face the Spartans of McFarland next Tuesday at
McFarland. Whitewater is now 0-1-0 in conference and 0-2-0 overall.
Junior varsity played a very aggressive game and beat the JV Blue Devils 4 - 0.

(Aug 18) End-of-Life
Pre-paredness Workshop - "Dying is a Serious and Complicated Business"
They had been married for three years. Her husband, 53,
died beside her in bed. She knew nothing of their finances, did not know his
funeral wishes, had no idea where the paperwork would be and did not know they
owned three condos. A 258 page workbook guide called And Then There was One was
written by Charlotte Fox to help people avoid the struggles she had.
This guide includes over 70 checklists and forms providing a roadmap
through the planning process. This guide will ease the transition for your
survivors by informing them of your wishes and promoting harmony in the family
after your passing. The greatest gift we can leave our family is our
pre-paration. You would not plan a wedding in three days but that often happens
in the event of a funeral.
The 4 hour
workshop, broken into two hour segments on two different dates, will
include information sharing by a lawyer, a banker, and hospice with time to ask
questions. It will be presented on:
nights September 15 and 22
Whitewater Public Library
6:00 p. m.-8:00
p.m. each date.
The workbook is optional at a cost of $30.
Additional information can be found on the website
