Howard County is beating the odds. The region is growing despite U.S. Census Bureau predictions.

According to the most recent figures, the county gained 119 residents between 2010 and 2012. That might not sound like much but county officials say it proves the area is moving in the right direction.

Sixty-two Indiana counties lost residents during the same two-year period.

    That is only because some of us are trapped! Stuck in this joke of a city by no fault of our own!(by that I mean, I was born in Howard County) I know so many people here that feel the same way that I do. I am looking forward to the day that I can leave the state of Indiana. I just happen to be stuck in the armpit of the state, Kokomo, Howard County. 😥 My parents stayed here because my Dad worked for the Steel Mill back in the 50's and 60's. His job there was a contributing factor in his death in my opinion! There are a lot of us that want out, so these stats will possibly change in the near future.
