The Ambrose brothers on June 25,
2010 visited their former family home at 724 Center Street now owned by Fred
and Sue Cerkoney. (l-r) Sue, Harry and Willie Ambrose and Fred.
(Mar 7) From Willie
Ambrose, youngest brother. I am writing to you to give you some Whitewater
news, the death of my brother, Harry Trippe Ambrose, age 80 in Williamsburg,
"Who is Harry?? The Ambrose family lived at 724 W. Center
St. from 1946 until my father's death in 1980. Harry graduated from Whitewater
City High School in 1952. He was valedictorian of his class, football
quarterback, basketball and track star. He remained close to Whitewater
throughout his life even taking over ownership of Dad's house for 10 years. He
spent many summers at family compound in Dunbar, Wisconsin. His great great
grandfather was one of Whitewater's founders, Dr. James Trippe. who came to
Whitewater in 1837 and built the first grist mill there. Following his untimely
death in 1844, his wife Rosepha successfully carried out his plan to lay out
the town, sell lots and bring settlers in. More Trippes followed including my
mother Cee Cee in the 20th century. She was born in Whitewater in 1911 and died
in Whitewater in 1972. Our father, a physician from Illinois would become
resident doctor for the college as well as carrying on his own practice from
1946 to 1980.
Our brother Stephen E. Ambrose, the middle brother became
a renowned historian and best selling author of many books. I believe always
returned to Whitewater for every high school class reunion and there are still
some of his classmates who reside in Whitewater today."
Ambrose, youngest brother
OBITUARY - VIRGINIA BEACH - Harry
T. Ambrose lived a full life & quietly joined the church triumphant on
February 20, 2014, following his battle with IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary
Fibrosis). He was born in Decatur, IL in 1933. Harry was preceded in
death by his parents, Dr. Stephen & Rosepha Ambrose & brother Stephen
E. Ambrose. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 58 years, Margie,
children Julie Seipel (Mark), Colin (Jessica) & Becki (Alec Winters),
brother Bill & many nieces and nephews. Harry was the smiling grandpa to
his 6 beautiful granddaughters, Laura & Lynna Seipel, Lyman, Mansell &
Whittier Ambrose and Arden Ambrose-Winters.
Harry graduated from Whitewater
(WI) High School, Dartmouth College, and Creighton University. He served in the
US Marine Corps for 3 years followed by a long career in the grain business.
Upon retirement from Continental Grain Company and settling in Williamsburg,
Harry became very active in the community by serving as an Elder in the
Williamsburg Presbyterian Church, a mentor to MBA students at the College of
William & Mary, a tutor of English as a second language & as an active
member of the Republican Party of Williamsburg, the Crown Colony Club & Wit
and Wisdom. Harry loved God, country & his family, playing in the north
woods of Wisconsin, teaching others about history, serving the Boy Scouts of
America as an Eagle Scout and leader and competing in tennis, golf & cards.
Harry was a friend to all and a mentor to many. He was always at the ready to
lend a hand, an opinion or advice. May we all "keep smiling" as we remember our
beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend.

(Mar 6) (Following
written by Jan Berezowitz, a retired Whitewater Unified School District teacher
residing in Darien, WI, March, 2014) - Dr. Seuss! Theodore Seuss Geisel (March
2, 1904 July, 1991) For the past few years, I have written a piece in
the spirit and style of Dr. Seuss as a way to recognize the birthday of this
wonderful, prolific writer of childrens books. This year, I
patterned my piece after the book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, 1957. Many
of the Seuss stories follow a rhythm pattern called anapestic tetrameter.
(Think of, Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not
a creature was stirring, not even a mouse) It is a challenge to keep up this
pattern throughout a piece and sometimes leads to creative and awkward sounding
phrases and invented language, but thats what made his work unique.
Why Mother Nature
All the folks down in Folkville liked
spring quite a lot,
But it seemed that the Mother of Nature did not.
She was freezing those folks for the whole winter season.
Dont ask me why, I dont quite know the reason.

(Mar 6) From Mike
Ciardo "I would like to sincerely thank everyone in the community who came on
February 9th to Rick's Eastside Pub and Grill to help my family and I celebrate
my recent retirement from the City of Whitewater Police Department. I
was deeply humbled by all of the cards and acts of kindness I have and continue
to receive from you all. We all go through life hoping to leave behind a
positive legacy and I am proud of my accomplishments over the past 31 ½
years serving you, the citizens of Whitewater.
I would like to especially thank Rick and Ellie Hartmann
for hosting my retirement party, Jim Stewart for helping my family publicize
the event, and the SweetSpot for the beautiful and delicious cake. Most of all,
I want to thank my wife Patti and my children Torrey, Jennifer and Brooke for
putting it all together. Without their support and understanding, I would not
have been able to do the things I wanted to do. We only go through life once so
seize the opportunity of every moment. Savor both the good and the bad. Go
through life knowing that you have made every single day count by doing what
you want to do.
Go through life with no regrets without feelings of
wonder on the "what ifs" because you never gave it a shot. Knowing that you
have lived everyday, as if it were your last makes waking up everyday more than
worthwhile. My new journey in retirement has begun.
I want to thank you all
for being a part of my journey these past 31 ½ years and I wish you

(Mar 4) The Irvin L.
Young Memorial Library and Friends of the Library have an appeal for volunteers
to help on setting up the book sale this week (see note below). If interested
in helping out please contact Shirley Hapka or any of the Library Staff to lend
a helping hand - 262-473-0530.
Volunteering is Good Medicine. This maybe overdoing it!
Volunteering provides individual health benefits in
addition to social ones. This research, which is presented in a report
titled The Health Benefits of Volunteering: A Review of Recent
Research, has established a strong relationship between volunteering and
health: those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional
ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not
Comparisons of the health benefits of volunteering for
different age groups have also shown that older
volunteers are the most likely to receive greater benefits from volunteering,
whether because they are more likely to face higher incidence of illness
or because volunteering provides them with physical and social activity and a
sense of purpose at a time when their social roles are changing. Some of these
findings also indicate that volunteers who devote a considerable
amount of time to volunteer activities (about 100 hours per year) are most
likely to exhibit positive health outcomes.

(Mar 4) Whitewater Kiwanis Program - Dan Nelson, a 13 year veteran deputy for
the Walworth County sheriffs department presented a locally developed slide
show on the reasons for the use of the rotary at an intersection, how to
navigate the rotary from various directions and he used an inter-active video
on how not to drive a car at a rotary.
Most people may not
realize the rotary concept was developed in 1909 in Great Britain; even that
early in the century it was realized that growing traffic needed to be safe and
The first rotaries were constructed in the United States
in 1966 and by 1990 the number of rotaries had grown in number, but were
limited mostly to the eastern states. By 2011 Dan estimated there were 2,000
around the U.S, possibly 300 in Wisconsin by 2014.
Elkhorn Rd, Bluff & Clay Street intersection is the only rotary in Walworth
Co. although three more are in the planning stages. The experience with the
rotary has given traffic engineers some points to consider in future
developments. The number of semi's transiting is a factor and the speeds
Statistics, Dep. Nelson said, bear out the fact that, in
general, the rotary provides a safer intersection. There has been a significant
decrease in bad accidents, with a 52% decrease in fatalities and a 9% decrease
in all accidents.
In 1909 there were no rules for navigating a rotary
but today if people follow the rules the rotary does provide a safe and
