No more fluoride for Bourbon

March 20, 2012

BOURBON — It’s official: town water in Bourbon will no longer contain added fluoride. Town council members unanimously voted to omit added fluoride during their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday.
“I see no reason to continue with it,” said council president Les McFarland.
McFarland added that he had conducted research online about the pros and cons of including fluoride in public water supplies. He also took into consideration a letter he received from Indiana Water Fluoridation Program manager James Powers, detailing the benefits of adding fluoride.

Trojans fall to Canterbury in 2OT regional championship

March 15, 2012

BOURBON — Clay Yeo got the record, but the Trojans fell short of a repeat regional championship.
Yeo’s driving layup from the lane with 1:22 left in regulation secured him Triton’s all-time scoring record, but when Davis Rao buried a 3 from the wing on the other end, the announcement was drown out by the Canterbury fans.
Rao’s triple sparked an 8-0 run as Kai Foday knocked down a big one-and-one with 28 seconds on the clock to knot the game up at 48-all and force overtime, and the 6-3 forward followed up with an overtime-opening trey of his own to put the Cavaliers up 51-48.

Couponing class part of BPL series

March 15, 2012

BOURBON — Extreme couponing. The concept popularized by the TV show of the same name made clipping coupons a nationwide craze in 2010. Bourbon resident and avid couponer Valerie Manns has never seen the show, but that fact didn’t prevent her from teaching a class at the Bourbon Public Library Saturday about how to get started couponing.

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.
