Congratulations DeWitt County on You Choice of Choices

In a fit of good governance, DeWitt County has settled on a consensus candidate for County Board. Wapella's own Jay Wickenhouser (WHS '88) has been chosen to fill a vacant seat, opened by a recent resignation.

Wickenhouser, who looks somewhat like Brian Urlacher, pictured here, albeit with better hair, his Uncle Jack was a noted barber in Clinton for many years, and a Cub fan of great merit and patience, brings not only his Hollywood Style looks to County Government, but also a pleasant demeanor and firm resolve to provide leadership for the citizens of not only Wapella, but also all of DeWitt County.

Way to go Jay Wickenhouser, one of Wapella's finest!

Can You say SWEET 16?

Wapella has a grandson in the SWEET 16!

Can you figure out who it is?

They Play Cardinal Ritter on Wed.

And they have already beaten two teams who have beaten Cardinal Ritter this year.

Or so I'm told.

Wapella wants more info, maybe even a play by play.

St. Louis post dispatch will confirm.

The farm boys have done something for the first time in 50 years. Actually the first time ever.

The play by play was on channel 2.

That's awesome. I can think of an uncle in particular who would be very proud (make your free throws/play defense). Under-publicized Blue Ridge lost by 3 to Dee Mack last nite for sectional final. Only Bellflower names I gleaned were Plunk and Builta.RJT
