Basketball Team Wins First Game: WHS 50 Oregon 43
Sarah Schumacher with 16 Points!

Myriama Smith-Traore with 13 Points!
Kailey Reynolds with 9 Points!
Coach Judy Harms: "Whitewater girls basketball notched a
win in their home opener against Oregon. It was a close contest the entire
night until Whitewater produced a surge part way through the final quarter. The
Whippets were then able to hang on to the lead securing their first win of the
season, despite going 8-18 at the charity stripe down the stretch. Oregon had a
couple of really nice post players who challenged us all night long at both
ends of the court. It was especially great competition for our inside game, and
although we are quite rusty, it was a great start to the season. Our toughest,
most difficult task tonight was overcoming the enormous shoes to fill in losing
Brooke Trewyn to graduation. Our team rallying together during crunch time
speaks volumes, and I couldn't be more proud of the girls holding their
composure in this tight victory.
Sarah Schumacher led the Whippets with 16,
while Myriama Smith-Traore had 13.
The Whippets will travel to Watertown on
Friday for another non-conference game before hosting Jefferson next Tuesday in
a Rock Valley Conference tip-off."

"The Drowsy Chaperone" Orchestra at
"The Drowsy Chaperone" is a silly parody of American
musical comedies of the 1920s.
As you walk - or maybe dance - out the
door after the performance, hummable tunes like "Toledo Surprise" will be stuck
in your head.
To chase away his blues, a modern day musical theatre
addict known simply as "Man in Chair" drops the needle on his favorite LP
recording (yep - vinyl, not a CD or Pandora on a smart phone) - the 1928
musical comedy "The Drowsy Chaperone" - and the uproariously funny musical
magically bursts to life on stage. Unforgettable characters in the musical
include a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get
married, her producer who sets out to sabotage the wedding, her chaperone, the
debonair groom, the dizzy chorus girl, the Latin lover and a pair of groovy
gangsters who double as pastry chefs.

the Walworth County Jail on charges of Attempted 1st Degree Intentional
Homicide, False Imprisonment, Strangulation and Suffocation, Disorderly

Police Department recently made an arrest in which a person was charged with
several drug-related charges to include the possession of GHB (Gamma
Hydroxybutyrate). GHB is often referred to as the date rape drug.
GHB is most often produced in a liquid form and
can be mixed with many things including water because it has no taste. GHB was
originally prescribed for sleep disorders until it was banned by the FDA in
1990 because of the dangers associated with its use. GHB was again approved in
2002 for treatment of a rare form of narcolepsy. Today, most of the GHB
produced in the U.S. is done so illegally.
the Whitewater Police Department understands that GHB can be used illegally for
other things, such as a dietary supplement, muscle building, and relief of some
fibromyalgia symptoms, they want to make the public aware this dangerous drug
has been located in our community.
Some of the side effects to be mindful of include
headaches, hallucinations, dizziness, confusion, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness,
agitation, diarrhea, sexual arousal, numbing of legs, vision problems,
tightness of chest, mental changes, combativeness, memory loss, serious
breathing and heart problems, seizures, coma, and death.
experience any of the symptoms or notice a friend is acting very unusually
while in a social setting, please call for medical assistance immediately and
contact your local police department.
