(Oct 23) Looking for a
solution to electrical needs at special events, Downtown Whitewater, Inc. and
the Whitewater City Market have teamed up with UW-Whitewater physics professor
Ozgur Yavuzcetin and United Way of Jefferson and North Walworth Counties to
give a free workshop on kinetic energy and bike-generated power.

kinetic energy and bike-generated power at Oct 25th City Market.
As part of the last Whitewater City Market of the season,
Yavuzcetin will show how to build a human-powered generator and allow the
public to try it out! Participants will also be able to charge their electronic
devices or light the tent while getting a little exercise on a stationary bike.
This event, titled Public Power, will take place on Tuesday, October
25th at 5 p.m. at the Whitewater City Market at Cravath Lakefront Park Funding
for the project was provided by the United Way of Jefferson and North Walworth
Counties Pillar Grant Program.
completed, the bike will be available for outdoor events that need additional
lighting, a charging station, or mobile electricity. A public, indoor charging
location is also being considered.
(Oct 23) The WHS Boys'
Soccer Team played their last game of the season on Thursday, Oct. 20. The
Whippets were seeded 11th in the sectional and travelled up to Plymouth, the
6th seed. Plymouth was undefeated in their conference and only had 2 losses all
season so we knew it would be a tough game.
Chenoweth: "As has been the case most of the season, the Whippets came out
ready to play and looked to be in control to start the half. This was one of
the more physical games we've played and the Whippets stepped up to the
challenge. Plymouth slowly gained control as the half rolled on and they were
able to get a goal 5 minutes before the end of the half to lead 1-0.
The second half was more of the same with two
fairly evenly matched teams going at it up and down the pitch. Plymouth put
another one in the net about 15 minutes into the half which forced us then to
change our formation to go goal hunting. The play of the game for the Whippets
took place after Plymouth was awarded a penalty kick which could have put the
game completely out of reach for the Whippets. The Whippet keeper, Alex
Vidales, stretched out to knock the Plymouth goal attempt away and keep the
Whippets in the game. Unfortunately, the Whippets were not able to get a goal
and the game ended 2-0.
The game wrapped up a solid season against some
really strong competition. Across the season we played teams that were ranked
in the top 5 at division 1, 2 and 3 and six of the teams the Whippets played
went on to win their regional championship. That said, we know we let a couple
of games slip away that we needed to win to place higher in the conference and
get a higher seed in the tournament. The team will miss the leadership of our
16 seniors and wishes them well as they finish out their senior year."

WIAA Sectional Deerfield/Cambridge - Division II
Allisan Barrret and Nicole Tomomitsu qualified for
state!Picture courtesy of Bob Mischka - for extensive picture gallery
Coach Chad Carstens "WHS Cross Country Teams in
Sectionals - Racing with intensity and pure grit, the Whippet boys and girls
took to the trails at Cam-Rock Park in Cambridge. Having superb races were
junior Allisan Barrret and sophomore Nicole Tomomitsu earning a trip to state!
The top two teams at the sectional earn a trip to state along with the top five
individuals not on those qualifying teams. Allisan Barrett was the 4th fastest
of the individual qualifiers racing to a 6th place finish in 19:13. Nicole
Tomomitsu was poised early and stayed committed to the goal of also qualifying
for state by running a ferocious last half of her race to dust the runners
around her and take 7th overall and the 5th and final individual qualifying
spot in a huge PR of 19:17. These two earned state meet experience last year as
members of the 7th place team but this is the first time they both made it as
individual qualifiers. Also running a PR were freshmen Abby Grosinske and
Hailey Prager. Hailey fought her way to a finishing time of 22:27. Abby was
able to modify a few things in her training that allowed her to run a huge
personal best of 23:08. Seniors Rebekah Schumacher and Sophie Elworthy finished
their careers placing 62nd and 89th. Maribel Alvarez raced her way to 90th
overall to round out the 7 competing Whippets. The team finished in 6th place
overall, arguably their best team race of the season.
The boys were
once again led by junior Jacob Korf. He placed 12th in 16:55. Jacob had
aspirations to earn a trip to state for the first time but fell about 15
seconds short of the final qualifier. Jacob raced very strong and stayed
committed to the program mantra of "if someone is going to beat you, make them
earn it", he did just that contending well until the very last parts of the
race. I am proud of his efforts. Senior Matt Mattingly completed his final race
with a season best of 17:21 showing off his eye popping leg speed in the final
stretch to take 21st. Senior Jimmy King also capped his career with a season PR
of 17:27 to finish 24th. Senior Connor Laue returned to the line up after cross
training for 5 weeks with a lower leg injury. He legs weren't what they used to
be, but it was nice to see him wear the Whippet jersey one final time. He
finished in 56th followed closely by fellow senior Justin Brantmeier in 57th.
Freshman Aidan Coburn battled an illness in the days leading up to Sectionals
and it was evident he wasn't himself but still gave it a go to finish in 58th.
Sophomore Jon Zheng rounded out the Whippet competitors today in 65th. Overall
the boys finished in 7th place.
Allisan and Nicole will run in the WIAA
D2 Girls race at 2:25 on Saturday, Oct. 29th in Wisconsin Rapids at the Ridges

(Oct 20) Reminder not to
drink and drive and how it affects so many others. Comment from WHS Grad and
UWW student Gina Hollingshead.
Within three years, two people
near and dear to my heart have lost a relative at the hands of a drunken driver
in two separate crashes in Walworth County. The sad reality of drunken driving
is that whenever someone dies, a multitude of people are affected by the loss.
One of the victims was a passionate 6-year-old who had his future ahead
of him and the other was a nurturing mother of two. Studies done by Mothers
Against Destructive Decisions show that two out of every three people will be
involved in a drunken driving crash during their lifetime.
the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, two years ago 24,000 individuals
were convicted of drunken driving. The abundance of drunken drivers on our
roads goes unnoticed to many and the seriousness of this offense is belittled.
So what can you do to help lower the number of drunken drivers? You can
start by downloading the Zero in Wisconsin Drive Sober app (). This app
offers a blood alcohol level calculator, the ability to report a drunken driver
and the option of finding a ride by the click of a button.
suspect a drunken driver please call 911 immediately. Taking these steps toward
safer roads could not only save your life, it could save those around you that
are also loved by many.

Brom Bones, and meets the lovely Katrina Van Tassle, which only adds to his
adventures ahead. All seems right and calm in Sleepy Hollow, but there is more
than meets the eye. Legends and tales of a Headless Horseman and ghosts circle
around, and Ichabod soon learns that sometimes legends are more true than

(Oct 24) Thomas J. Pattison, age 64, passed away on Monday, October 17, 2016
at Willowfield Nursing and Rehab Center in Delavan following a lengthy battle
with cancer. He was born on November 8, 1951 to John and Dorothy (Scott)
Thomas graduated from Brown Communications College in
Minneapolis, MN and spent 45 years doing exactly what he loved, sports media.
With a lengthy and memorable career that spanned from Bozeman, MT to Durand, WI
and finally landing in Whitewater, WI his voice will never be forgotten. From
the Durand Panthers taking State with an "Oh My!" to his place in the Athletic
Hall of Fame after earning his name in Whitewater as "The Voice" of Warhawk
Sports, his work has passion has impacted so many more people than he will ever
As a freelance media professional, Thomas also covered many a
Packers and Brewers game, a dream he didn't even realize he was living until
the moment he lived it. He was great at what he did, the best even. He could
never be replaced.
He was also a dedicated father and grandfather,
spending time with his family was the only thing he loved more than a Warhawks
Football game on any given Saturday. And even then...coin toss. His career was
long and full of stories that should be shared, and though he tried to complete
his biography before he passed, the book remains unfinished. The family will
share pieces at his Memorial service, as he would have loved.
survived by his brother John Pattison, his daughters Kimberlee Pattison and

Dallas Harwood, his niece Rachel Harris and his nephews Ryan Pattison and John
