The Warriors are coming off a successful weekend, returning from Rapid City Sports with two wins over Stevens and Central. Senior Lauren Farritor said she has high hopes for tonight’s competition. “We will have to come out ready to go tonight,” Farritor said. “Lincoln won’t be easy, so

we know that we have to play our best tonight. It should be a fun game.” JV and freshmen teams will compete at 4:30 p.m., the sophomores at 5:45 p.m. and the varsity around 7 p.m. tonight in the WHS gyms.

AP Chemistry students get extra credit opportunity PROMISE Lecture Series gives students insight into various areas By Adam Gacke and Alison Rollag Most students don’t want to sit in on more lectures than they have to, but some AP Chemistry students at WHS are taking enjoyFeature ment in attending scientific lectures as an extra credit opportunity. The lectures in question are the PROMISE (Program for the Midwest Initiative in Science Exploration) Community Lecture Series put on by Sanford Research. The invited speakers to these free, monthly events are leaders in their fields of research and represent academic institutions and industry in our region. Each scientist will share their recent research and its impact on society. Presentations will range in topic from breast cancer to meteorological science.

The first seminar in the series was Thursday and discussed concussions and youth football. Senior Tyler Hagen was eager to go to the lecture for extra credit. “I learned that high school kids and middle school kids had about the same impact force,” Hagen said. AP Chemistry teacher Laura Mehlbrech offered the extra credit as an educational opportunity. “I want my students to learn about careers in science and the biomedical field,” Mehlbrech said. “Some lectures discuss other sciences, so the students will learn about other careers, as well.” Hagen plans to put his newfound knowledge to good use in the future. “I want to be a pharmacist, so I think that going to the lectures at Sanford will benefit me,” he said.

Be Great. Start Here.

Constitution begins fight for ratification (MCT) The Constitution of the United States of America was signed by 38 of 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on Sept. 17, 1787, and supporters of the document began a hard-fought battle to win ratification by the necessary nine out of 13 U.S. states.

Our History

Time quickly running out for Target voting By Jamie Withorne The end is near for the Target School Giveaway. Since the beginning of the school year, the Target Corporation has been running a promotion in which anyone with a Facebook account could vote for their favorite school and that school would earn $1 for each vote cast. Participants could actually vote once each week, with the voting resetting each Sunday. Final voting will end this Saturday, or when the $5 million dedicated to the project runs out. As of today, Target has

given away $4.15 million. Of that, WHS has earned $547. Parent Shelly Goetz, who is spearheading the effort for WHS, said she wants the school to earn as much as they can before time runs out. “As of this morning, Target has given away over $4 million,” Goetz said. “Our Goal was $1,000. If just one-fourth of the kids would vote this week, we would make our goal.” Visit com/school/67964 to vote—remember, you must see your Facebook photo to confirm your vote.

Beginning on Dec. 7, five states— Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut— ratified it in quick succession. However, other states, especially Massachusetts, opposed the document, as it failed to reserve undelegated powers to the states and lacked constitutional protection of basic political rights, such as freedom of speech, religion, and the press. In February 1788, a compromise was reached under which Massachusetts and other states would agree to ratify the document with the assurance that amendments would be immediately proposed. The Constitution was thus narrowly ratified in Massachusetts, followed by Maryland and South Carolina. On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the document, and it was subsequently agreed that government under the U.S. Constitution would begin on March 4, 1789. In June, Virginia ratified the Constitution, followed by New York in July.
