Pimp My Races!

Drama and Excitement Build As The 2006 KISS Series Is Ready To Open

An area native writes:
I grew up in this area of Indiana, and frequented the Kokomo Speedway, known for being the home of the non-winged sprint cars. In 2005, this "track’s surface has been significantly reworked and surrounded with new walls and fencing." While I am no longer in Indiana, I am excited to know of these improvements. I am also excited to think that this track of my youth may finally gain some national attention. The final leg of the 2006 KISS series begins with the race at Kokomo, and it ought to prove a worthwhile event for anyone to attend.

In The News

This week in Kokomo, police conducted a sting operation in Kokomo Reservoir Park. The sting lasted two days, during which time no less than six old men (aged 58, 60, 60, 67, 69, and 73) approached the undercover officer "seeking sexual gratification." One of the men "grabbed the officer's genitals." They were all charged with either misdemeanor public indecency, misdemeanor battery, or misdemeanor indecent exposure. - Local News - Six Arrested In Undercover Sex Sting At Park

WIRED Initiative

The Peru Tribune :: Peru, Indiana - Region to receive economic development funds

The North Central region of Indiana (Miami, Wabash, Howard, Tipton, Cass, Fulton, White, Carroll, Tippecanoe, Warren, Fountain, Clinton, Montgomery and Benton) will receive these funds, as a part of the WIRED initiative, or Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development, and they will be paid over three years. This grant was spurred due to the low percentage of adults with Bachelor's degrees (only 1 in 8) in North Central Indiana. This rate is one of the lowest in the state of Indiana.

Galactic Guide to Kokomo

A hilarious article - full of laughs!
Project Galactic Guide for Kokomo, Indiana, USA, Earth

An amazingly low number of books have been written on Kokomo. By some remarkable coincidence, this happens to almost exactly match, with a somewhat pathetic precision, the total amount of interest that this city represents for the rest of the Universe. There is only one reasonable advice to give to the hitchhiker who would plan to stop in Kokomo: forget it.
