Law and order at Triton High

October 30, 2013

BOURBON — The popular cop show Criminal Minds has nothing on Triton High School students as they put their own minds to solving crimes and gathering evidence.

Receiving both high school credit and nine semester hours (three courses) at Vincennes University, the students will have a good introduction to the field of criminal law and law enforcement by the end of this school year.

BOURBON — Triton Jr./Sr. High School is ramping up its dual credit college offerings this fall as it partners with several college-level institutions to give college credit for advanced high school courses. It gives students a head start on their college education while also reducing expenses.
One new class is the Education Professions I class taught by Triton Elementary School Title I Coordinator Susan Mullin. The class is sponsored by Ivy Tech and carries the same title and credits as if it were taken on an Ivy Tech campus.

Triton SummerFest serves up fun

August 25, 2013

BOURBON — It would not be summer without small-town festivals of every shape and size. Such was the case this weekend as Bourbon, Etna Green, and Tippecanoe celebrated their 27th Triton SummerFest. The festival began in 1986, and continues to this day as a stanchion of Midwest America.

Smithsonian, pork chops intersect in parade marshals

August 7, 2013

BOURBON — Off-the-wall riddle of the day: “What do the Smithsonian Institution and a pork chop have in common?” Off-the-wall answer: “Larry and Sharon Lemler — grand marshals of the 2013 Bourbon SummerFest parade.”
Meat processing and museum-making have been the passions of this very interesting couple for the last 54 years, making them ideal candidates for the honor to be bestowed on them Saturday, Aug. 10, as the small town festival begins.
“Hard work,” said Sharon, when asked what characterized the Lemler legacy.

Poultry Grand Champion’s efforts a family affair

August 7, 2013

ARGOS — It’s a family tradition.
You could call the Lemlers from Bourbon a real 4-H Family. Breanna — a 2013 grad of Triton along with siblings Bethany, 22, and Blake, 20 — were all successful veterans of the meat Poultry divisions of the Marshall County Fair. Fellow 4-H vet — father Tim Lemler — is the Poultry Superintendent.
One family 4-H goal — win grand champion in all four poultry divisions. With Breanna, that goal has finally come true.
