Item collection raises money for senior class party By Kinsey Strom Senior class parents will collect donations for a senior class party fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at WHS. The parents will take donations of items including clothing, shoes, linens, accessories and more outside the school near the WHS track. They will then take the items to Savers thrift store in Sioux Falls, who will exchange them for a donation to the party fund.   Parent Kathy Derr, mother


of senior Eric Derr, said she hopes for a good turnout for the drive and explains how she came up with the idea. “The WHS track team had a Savers fundraiser last spring,” Derr said. “We are hoping for a good response.” Derr said the group hopes to raise real money. “We are hoping to receive enough donations to raise $1,000,” Derr said. Other ways that WHS families can help raise money include Hy-Vee gift cards that Warrior Nation Events


can be purchased along with other volunteer opportunities. She suggests parents ask about opportunities to volunteer when dropping off items on Saturday. The fundraising effort can also be found at the group’s Facebook page by searching “2018 WHS Senior Class Party” or by e-mailing the group at whs2018scp@gmail. com to get on the mailing list for volunteer opportunities and other senior class party news.

Speech students attend P-Bowl Youth Basketball event this weekend McGovern Invitational By Payton Jahnke Warrior oral interp and debate team member will attend the 26th Annual George McGovern Forensics Tournament hosted by Mitchell High School today and Saturday at Mitchell Middle and High School. The event is named in honor of the late U.S. Representative, U.S. Senator and Democratic party presidential nominee from 1972 George

Stanley McGovern, who was from Avon and lived in the Mitchell area for many years following retirement until his death in 2012. Registration will begin at 10:15 a.m. today. Debate coach Travis Dahle said the team is ready. “I’m excited for the kids because the last two years it has been cancelled due to the weather, so it’s nice to actually have the tournament this year,” Dahle said.

By Carter Munce and Kinsey Strom The annual Presidents’ Bowl Youth Basketball Tournament will tip-off at local high school basketball courts today. The tournament will feature boys and girls teams in fourth through eighth grades and will play in both gyms at WHS, as well as at Roosevelt and Lincoln, beginning tonight and all day Saturday and Sunday. Scoring, officiating and

other tasks will be done by volunteers who use the tournament as a fundraiser. Senior Topher Zahn, who will volunteer with the event this weekend, said it will be a good time. “It’s important because it will give money to all Sioux Falls Public Schools,” Zahn said. The Presidents’ Bowl Tournament is a popular early-season primer to get youth basketball teams ready for the upcoming season.

Believe in yourself to get through school Stressing out over school sucks. The long-term planning of it, all the responsibility to your family or yourself to do well so that you can be successful and the knowledge that sometimes no matter what you do someone will do it better Hear me. . . all makes stressing out something to avoid. I see too many people get fed up Carter Munce with it all and just stop caring, so here’s a few helpful tips to keep you going through the doldrums of mid-winter. First, believe in yourself. Not just the hokey “I’m going to do well today” belief, but the “life may kick me in the

Adventure Awaits


teeth today, but I’ll curb stomp life tomorrow” kind of belief in yourself. Next, ask questions if you are lost. There are two reasons for this—one, your right to understand is equal to everyone else’s, and two, there, more than likely, is another poor sonof-a-gun who is lost, but is just more shy than you, so be the bigger man, and admit what you don’t know. Finally, clean your room. The reason you do this is simple—if you let your room get sloppy, you will let your life get sloppy, every piece of clutter represents a problem you didn’t take care of earlier. If you can deal with clutter as it arises, you can deal with any of your problems. In summary, go clean your room, and fight against life’s struggles by having an unshakable belief in your ability to overcome and win in the classroom by asking the questions that nobody else has the guts to ask. Senior Carter Munce says go fight win, Warriors, go fight win!

Space toilet spawns research

By Lisa Grossman Science News for Students (TNS) The search for life may get an assist from the call of nature. Astronomers have been intrigued by jets of icy liquids, such as on Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Now they might learn how to study such plumes from an unlikely source: space toilets.

Science Friday Enceladus hosts an ocean of liquid water beneath its icy surface. That sea constantly vents water into space through cracks in its surface ice. (Jupiter’s moon Europa also hosts an ocean of liquid water beneath its icy surface. So it, too, may spew plumes. But if it does, those plumes are not as persistent.) Planetary scientists would like future spacecraft to scoop up samples of these plumes. That way they could test them for signs of life. But trying to model such space plumes in a lab on Earth is challenging. During the first flight of the space shuttle Discovery in 1984, for example, an icicle grew from a fuel-cell vent. It lengthened to 60 centimeters (23.6 inches). Astronauts eventually had to knock it off with the shuttle arm. That experience could hint at how the water vents on Enceladus change shape over time — and how big the ice particles spewed by those vents can get. In fact, a 2000 paper in Advances in Space Research analyzed small dents on a Japanese spacecraft. It found traces of phosphorus, sulfur and nitrogen. The authors concluded these may have been from particles of urine ice raining down on the exterior of the craft. But that might spell good news in the hunt for signs of life on Enceladus. Future space missions could look for molecules associated with life that have been preserved in plumes of ice spewed by this moon.
