“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”
“We are going to begin club teams in the fall. Men's basketball and women’s volleyball... the first two sports as [IUK] moves to NAIA....We [IU Kokomo] will... follow all regulations of the NAIA to make sure that.. we will be able to apply and be in a conference. Our hope is to do one year of club and the following year to join the conference. (Feb.17, 2011)”
“Last year we were pretty disappointed after beating North Judson in the regular season and then losing in the finals of the sectional. That hit us pretty hard. It was painful. We wanted it a year ago, and it's just built up since then.”
“We had a lot of pressure on us after going undefeated (in the regular season) last year. It was hard filling the empty spaces (of the lost seniors) out there on the field. It was hard to find people that have the natural passion to be a leader. Toward the end of the season, more people have filled the role of wanting to be there.”
“This year the fish numbers aren't looking too good. If we were to allow a regular harvesting season, it would put further strain on the salmon at a time when we have to be really careful there are adequate numbers to spawn and replenish.”
