as well as administrators and other teachers from the schools involved. The public is invited to attend, with the review starting at 1:30 p.m. Activities are scheduled for the main WHS football field, but will likely be moved to the gym due to predicted rain.

Baseball team improves to 5-2 with win Girls golf team finishes eighth in 14-team Yankton Invitational Baseball

By Noah Weber The Warrior varsity baseball team improved to 5-2 after shutting out the Harrisburg Tigers 6-0 Tuesday night in Harrisburg. Senior pitcher Justin Miller had an excellent game, allowing only two hits and striking out 12 in six innings. Junior Timmy Wood went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in the win. Coach Chris Janisch said he was proud of the effort.

“We got a tremendous pitching effort from our ace and senior Justin Miller,” Janisch said. “Offensively, Tim Wood led the way and carried us by driving in three runs. This was our first region game, and I felt like the intensity, attention to detail, and energy was consistent throughout the game, and keyed our victory.” The JV also won 10-2 WHS will host the Huron Tigers in a doubleheader on Thursday at Harmodon Park.

Girls Golf

By Noah Weber The girls golf team finished eighth with 381 strokes in the 14-team Yankton Invitational Tuesday at Fox Run Golf Course in Yankton. O’Gorman won with 336. Seniors Ashlee Eggebraaten and Josie Obenauer tied for 20th individually with scores of 92. The Warriors will next compete in the second round of the City Meet Tuesday at Prairie Green.

‘All Time Low’ all-time high for S.F. music scene Warriors, Sioux Falls has officially made it to the big leagues! Last week we had Birdy and Christina Perry, and this coming Monday The District—Sioux Falls’ newest concert venue near the Empire Mall—will be hosting the pop-punk band All Time Low. Hear me. . . In case you are not familiar, All Time Low released “Don’t Brandon Holt-Clark Panic,” their fifth studio album, in 2012 and followed up with “Don’t Panic: It’s Longer Now” which included their bonus track and hit single “A Love Like War.” I have been a fan of the band for many years, so this is a dream come true for me, and so I have been preparing


myself for the past few weeks. Today, I will share with you how to enjoy this momentous event, as well. First, plan on wearing something comfortable. As anybody who went to Spinsters can tell you, The District can get hot and crowded. Something else to keep in mind is that often in such crowded environments beverages get thrown around haphazardly, and usually one leaves covered in a multitude of unidentified drinks. I myself would suggest jeans and a t-shirt. Also keep in mind that sometimes a band does not sound as good live as they may in a produced recording. This may be a sad realization for many fans, but just something to keep in mind. I would also suggest that you listen to the band’s music so you can sing along to all the songs to get the full-concert experience. The doors will open at 7 p.m. sharp Monday, but I would suggest getting to the general admission show early. Senior Brandon Holt-Clark will see you in the mosh pit.

Court upholds limits on air toxicity By Neela Banerjee Tribune Washington Bureau (MCT) WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency’s firstever limits on air toxics, including emissions of mercury, arsenic and acid gases, preserving a far-reaching rule the White House had touted as central to President Barack Obama’s environmental agenda.

Your green world

In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit found that the rule “was substantively and procedurally valid,” turning aside challenges brought by Republican-led states that had argued it was onerous and environmental groups that had contended it did not go far enough. The EPA called the decision “a victory for public health and the environment.” Liz Purchia, a spokeswoman, said, “These practical and cost-effective standards will save thousands of lives each year, prevent heart and asthma attacks, while slashing emissions of the neurotoxin mercury, which can impair children’s ability to learn.” Environmentalists also hailed the ruling, which John Walke of the Natural Resources Defense Council called a “sweeping victory.” Walke said the rule was arguably the most “important regulation driving the cleanup of old, dirty coal plants.” Joy Yearout, spokeswoman for Attorney General Bill Schuette of Michigan, the lead plaintiff in the states’ lawsuit against the rule, said the EPA “illegally and unreasonably failed to consider the real costs associated with this policy.” “These heavy-handed EPA regulations threaten affordable electricity rates for millions of Americans,” she added.
