Triton wins 5th straight sectional

March 15, 2012

BOURBON — The mention of the inbound play that produced Clay Yeo’s sectional final-winning shot brought a smile to the Triton boys basketball star’s face.
“I was arguing with (head) coach (Jason) Groves about what play to run,” Yeo, who fired in a game-high 30 points, said. “I guess he was right.”

Team effort is focus for Triton DI students

March 6, 2012

BOURBON — This weekend, six teams of Triton students will travel to Kokomo for the regional Destination Imagination competition. They’ve been practicing, creating, and rehearsing all year, and it’s time for them to go up against more than 60 other teams in a contest that will explore their abilities at improvising, building, and multi-tasking. From first through 12th grade, the students know that their best effort can only come from group unity. When asked if they have a leader, the “E is the Only Vowel” team shakes their heads fervently, eyes widening at the thought.

Town to consider taking fluoride out of water

February 21, 2012

BOURBON — Water/wastewater department head Mike Shoda came before the Bourbon Town Council Tuesday with the idea to stop adding fluoride to the town’s public water supply. According to Shoda, fluoride in water may not be actually necessary and taking it out could save the town about $2,000 per year. Shoda also mentioned that he had spoken with the water department head in Walkerton — a town which has already ceased the addition of fluoride to their water — about the issue.
“There’s no law that says we need fluoride in the water,” said Shoda.

Triton leadership students visit VA hospital

February 21, 2012

BOURBON — In a group of more than 40 teenagers, it’s rare to not see a single cell phone. But that’s exactly what happened during Triton High School’s recent trip to the Indianapolis VA Medical Center.
“We did not see one cell phone out while we were in the hospital,” said Geri Newman, Triton High School nurse and chaperone for the trip.
“Some of our kids never stop talking, and the ones that never stop talking here were at a loss for words there,” added Mason McIntyre, athletic director.

Farmers market in Bourbon’s future?

February 21, 2012

BOURBON — A planning committee has formed in Bourbon to bring about the first-ever farmers market. The market will be located in the old Dairy Queen parking lot at the corner of West Center and 3rd Streets. The lot is the property of the Bourbon United Pentecostal Church.
Mark Cottrill, a member of the planning committee and pastor of Bourbon UPC, said that he has heard several requests for a farmers market from residents in the past several years. The empty lot, he added, is the perfect location for access for town residents and vendors.
