Junior Miss marks 50 years at Triton

October 31, 2013

To frame or not to frame

October 30, 2013

BOURBON — “To frame or not to frame — that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler….” When Shakespeare wrote these words centuries ago, surely he was anticipating the professional artistic skill of Robin Racolta, owner of Robin’s Nest in Bourbon. Although located in a small town, the frame shop has a regional reputation and is patronized by both individuals and large corporations.
“I love what I do,” said Racolta. “I wake up every morning and am excited to get started. Sometimes I go to the shop in the wee hours because of a particularly interesting project.”

Triton gym focus of rehabilitation

September 25, 2013

BOURBON — The movie “Hoosiers” contains an authentic historical setting: an actual high school gym from the 1950s used to film the event in 1954 in mythical “Hickory” (really Milan, although the gym used is located elsewhere) in which a small Indiana school wins the state basketball championship.
