  • Peace and strength
    Kevin Kile had tried it all: the counseling sessions, the group therapy, the medications – none if it was really solving his problems. A veteran of the Iraq war, Kile has been suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) since his service ended in 2006.
  • Kokomo gears up for Haynes-Apperson festival
    With the Haynes-Apperson Festival a little over a week away, festival chairman Paul Wyman said he is relatively relaxed going into the event, and it is due to the amazing team of dedicated volunteers who have been working all year to make it happen.
  • Laird prepares for Rio
    When it comes to the smallest population of any independent African state, none are smaller than Republic of Seychelles with its 90,000 inhabitants. When it comes to sporting events, none are bigger than the Summer Olympics and its estimated 10,000 athletes scheduled to compete this August in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Mesh the two together and one has a direct tie to the City of Firsts.
  • Fifty members and counting
    Service organizations are a vital part of any community, and the only way they survive is through the hard work and dedication of volunteer members – and the ability to recruit. For the Greentown Lions Club, the member that keeps the group growing is Jay Freeman, a 44-year member who surpassed a milestone in membership recruiting.

  • WESPY Awards for the Panthers
    Last year, Western High School assistant football coach Derek Tuggle had an idea that he took to Athletic Director Josh Larsh. Tuggle’s idea was to form a Panthers award program modeled after ESPN’s ESPY Awards. Larsh liked the idea, and after approval from school administration, the WESPY’s were created – Western’s Excellent Sports Performances of the Year.
  • Mantis fall twice
    Troye Kiernan became the fifth player to add his name to the inaugural Kokomo Mantis Football Club scoring roll on June 18. Kiernan, starting at midfielder for field manager Marcelo Santos’ side, got a rebound off a rocket shot attempt by substitute forward Xhovani Dokaj that ricocheted off the left bar of the Dayton Dutch Lions’ goal and blasted it home in the 62nd minute, tying the United States Soccer League Premier Development League battle at 1-1.

  • July 4th, Not So Pet Friendly
    The Fourth of July is one of the most stressful and potentially dangerous times of the year for pets.  While you and your family, friends, and neighbors are celebrating the holiday with fireworks, pets are finding these festive activities anything but celebratory.
