Board hears contract ratification request

May 17, 2011

A member of the Triton Teacher’s Association appeared before the Triton School Board May 9 asking that a contract for teachers be ratified before July 1.
Anita Orcutt, negotiating chairperson for the union, said she was making the verbal request in lieu of a written request. Orcutt said new laws at the state level will go into effect and contracts not signed by July 1 would be under the new laws.
“We don’t want to spend a lot of time on this,” Orcutt said. After the meeting, Orcutt said, “We (teachers) are willing to stay with the status quo.”

Town stands on allowing alley work to proceed

May 17, 2011

BOURBON — The Bourbon Town Council heard from representatives from three area businesses on north Main Street that disagreed on proposed work being done on an alley. The issue was one that had been discussed at prior meetings. The alley runs north and south behind Robin’s Nest, Bourbon Plumbing and Heating and Harmony Press. Tim Harmon, president of Harmony Press, explained to those present at the May council meeting, that his business intended to pave a five foot wide portion of the alley (that opens from a side door) and lay limestone as well.

McBride hopes retirement isn’t total

May 11, 2011

BOURBON — While most folks approaching retirement count down the weeks, days and hours, Triton Elementary School teacher and high school softball coach Steve McBride isn’t one of those.
“I really haven’t given it much thought,” said McBride, who will retire May 31 after 40 years of teaching. “With coaching softball, I really haven’t had much time to think about it. I’ll probably think about it more after I’m retired.”
McBride’s teaching career has been split between three areas — sixth grade (nine years), fifth grade (21 years) and physical education (last 10 years).

History unveiled at Bourbon Public Library

Musical honors grads, scholarship winner

April 26, 2011

BOURBON — Triton’s spring music concert not only entertained the crowd in the audience but also served to honor outgoing seniors and a scholarship winner. Musical Director Peter Foster explained that each outgoing senior choir and band members would get a plaque, a rose to give to a loved one, as well as a school letter. And when each student was issued the tokens, Foster gave descriptions of the student’s activities or plans for their future before offering his own sincere sentiments. “This group (of seniors) has been with me since the eighth grade,” he said.

A meeting they will always remember

April 26, 2011

BOURBON — Bourbon Police Officer Ben McIntyre and pastor of the Bourbon Bible Church Larry Goss will likely remember the first time they met for the rest of their lives — because in a twist of fate, they met each other for the first time — seven months apart. McIntyre met Goss the morning of Oct. 31 when he answered a call of a man who was unresponsive.
But Goss didn’t meet McIntyre until April 12, during a regular Bourbon Town Council meeting when he shook his hand during an award presentation for saving his life.
