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.

August 7, 2013

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.

Six reserves take oath to serve

August 4, 2013

BOURBON — It was both festive and serious Tuesday night as new reserve officers for the Bourbon Police Department were sworn in.

Bourbon police reserves are all volunteers with full-time jobs elsewhere. While their commitment to serve Bourbon in their free time is commendable, residents may not fully understand the elaborate interviewing and training process these recruits go through before they are ever seen in uniform.
