‘One child, one hour, and one school’

March 16, 2014

BOURBON — “Hope secretly feeds and strengthens promise,” wrote Sri Chinmoy in a Vatican prayer in 2003. It is impossible to know what is in a child’s mind as she eagerly anticipates the upcoming meeting with her mentor. Mentors, teachers, and parents have some inkling, however, as the child’s attitude, behavior, and performance in school improve dramatically. Such is the overall experience at Triton Elementary School as it begins a mentoring program devised by Kids Hope USA.

Council rewards shoveling family

February 20, 2014

BOURBON — Good deeds frequently go unnoticed. One such deed, however, was recognized by the Bourbon Town Council at its regular meeting Tuesday evening. It was reported that resident Ben Middaugh and his son McLain had been seen shoveling around fire hydrants in Bourbon following the recent heavy snows. This clearing of the hydrants is a safety issue since fire personnel can waste considerable time in an emergency trying to locate their hose hookups.

BOURBON — “The night came alive Saturday,” according to Kathryn Chapman Dreibelbis, coordinator of the annual Triton Father/Daughter Dance. Held at the Matchett Center in Bourbon, the event was open to any girl living in the Triton School District.
The cold and wet weather did not keep the girls and their dads from coming and enjoying themselves. The girls were dressed in semi-formal attire, which allowed their dress fabric to twirl and flow to the music of disk jockey Greg Craft. The fathers seemed to enjoy this special time with their children.

Triton School Board holds work session on ‘Old Gym’

January 23, 2014

BOURBON — How long do you keep an old building in use? The answer is: It depends.
It depends upon what condition the building is in, what the sentimental value of the structure is, what it will cost to maintain the building, and for what current use it is intended.
The “Old Gym” — formerly the Bourbon High School gym — is one such historical building with a long history as Bourbon, and then Triton. Students played basketball, took physical education classes, attended assemblies, and engaged in many other school events there.
