Liquor Commission Talks Vaping

At yesterday’s Naperville Liquor Commission meeting, representatives from School Districts 203 and 204, and 360 Youth Services discussed the upward trend in vaping and Juuling. Juuls are currently the most popular e-cigarette devices for teens to use, being very discrete and looking like USB drives. The commission asked to continue hearing about 360 and the school districts’ efforts on this trend and what the commission could do to keep the products out of minors’ hands.

High School Badminton

Waubonsie Valley traveled to Naperville Central last night for a badminton battle. It was a sister show down for one doubles. Joyce and Kathy Zheng faced off against Warriors Shalu and Sonu Manoharan. While the Zhengs battled well on defense the Manoharan’s were too much to handle and walked away victorious. It was the same for one and two singles. The Manoharan’s split up… Sonu against Joyce Zheng for one singles and Shalu against Ria Jha for two singles but single or apart the sister duo held up. Naperville Central would claim the meet though. Two doubles with Natassia O’Kulich and Isabel Korpas faced off against Sanjana Tumma and Pratyu Chunu helped the Redhawk victory with a 21-18 21-15 victory.
