  • Notaro’s Legacy
    Beth Notaro had always been a passionate advocate of the arts in the Kokomo area community. She played an instrumental role in events such as Art in the Park, Rhum Fest, and arguably her signature event, the Winter Woolen Workshop held each year at the Seiberling Mansion.
  • Open to love
    20-year-old Deliza did not plan on a second pregnancy. She did not plan on losing her job. She did not plan on her relationship with her son’s father coming to an end, and having to move in with a friend.
  • What’s in a name change?
    Can there be too many firsts in the City of Firsts? For First Church of God, there was. First Church of God has a long and distinguished history in Kokomo. Since 1930, the church has been a mainstay in the community – most notably in the West Sycamore Street location they occupied until moving to a 20-acre property on State Road 26 at Park Road. 
  • Meijer gives back to Salvation Army
    Much has been said about how giving of a community Howard County is. And that has been apparent to the new boss of the Salvation Army in Kokomo. Major David Luft has been in town less than three months, and he is already excited about what the area has to offer.

  • And the Sagamore goes to...
    The Family Service Association of Howard County is a mainstay on the local not-for-profit list that gives to its community. Founded in 1968, the organization’s first program was family counseling to low income families. Through the years, FSA has grown and now has nine main programs as a United Way agency. 
  • Restaurants from the 40’s and 50’s
    The ‘40’s and ‘50’s were memories that will last forever. Can you remember the restaurants and many drive-ins?  We put in the addresses so you can drive by and see what is there now.
  • Hitler’s ardent advocate
    Adolph Hitler’s close circle of friends at his Bavarian residence, The Berghof, by no means reflected his standards for the Aryan race. Joseph Goebbels was the most educated, and probably, the most intelligent of these friends. Albert Speer, Hitler’s architect, was also an exceptional person, but the remaining members of Hitler’s circle were hooligans, bullies, thugs and drug addicts. Rudolf Hess at his trial was proven to be psychotic. 
  • Benberry on defense
    On August 28, the Kokomo High School football team put on an offensive display like no Wildkat fan had ever seen before at Walter Cross Field. In front of a near capacity crowd, the Kats tallied a school record 587 total yards of offense in a 61-27 win over Indianapolis Arsenal Tech. 
  • Kats rough up Tech
    Avenging a loss is commonplace in sports. For most, the attempt to make-up for a loss to a team comes later in the season or the next year. For others, the chance to avenge a tough loss can take years. For the Kokomo Wildkats, it was the latter. On a beautiful Friday night at Walter Cross Field, the Kats avenged a loss 50 years in the making when it knocked off Indianapolis Arsenal Tech 61-27 in a record-setting performance in a non-conference contest.
  • Western varsity wins
    Western’s 21-14 varsity football victory over Tippecanoe Valley and other local football briefs.  
    Patricia L. Padfield, 87, was surrounded by her family when she went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, Aug. 30, 2015. Patricia was born in Howard County, on July 27, 1928, to the late Hershel and Kathryn (Littler) Titus. Patricia graduated from West Middleton High School in 1946 and married Harry R. Padfield on June 9, 1946. They celebrated their 69th Wedding anniversary in June. 
  • Pet of the Week 9-3-15
    Meet Simon! This sweet Shepard mix is only 7 months old and he came to shelter as a timid stray. After being there a couple days he began to warm up and is now such a loving boy! Simon is very well behaved and knows tricks such as: sit, shake and down. He gets along well with other dogs and loves people.  
  • 9/2/2015
