  • Beating the odds
    Kokomo is full of small businesses. Some are easily recognizable while others are tucked away with little exposure to the general public. Lorentson Manufacturing is one of those that receives little notice but is a major player in the automotive and plastic molding markets. Located on Rank Parkway, hundreds of drivers pass by the non-descript cluster of buildings as they drive to Menards, never knowing the global impact or local history of Lorentson.
  • A dog-gone party
    If you hear an abundance of dogs barking in Foster Park on Oct. 3, do not be alarmed as Barktober Fest returns to the community for the ninth time. The annual event for the dogs, previously held in Highland Park, is a major fundraiser for the Kokomo Humane Society.
  • A new lease on life
    Chuck McCoskey knew almost immediately what was wrong. When 14 year old son, Matt, began complaining of nagging fatigue and almost constant thirst, it was all too familiar.
  • Wildkats are for real
    For the first time since 2011, Wildkat Nation is excited for football. Not an “it’s football season” kind of excitement but a genuine “this team is for real” excitement.

  • Western is state bound
    One week after winning a sectional title, the No. 14-ranked Western Lady Panthers traveled to Battle Ground Golf Course for the IHSAA Lafayette Jefferson Girls Golf Regional. No. 10 Chesterton captured the regional title with a round of 317 and Western finished as runners-up with a 333. No. 12 Crown Point also shot a 333, but finished third based on the finish of the fifth golfer on each squad.  
  • Wildkats hoopsters hit the links
    I love golf. I love getting out in the fresh air. I love riding in a cart and talking about the days events with good friends. And I love the thought that if I hit just one good shot, it is worth coming back again.
