Oh Hell

Officials in Putnam Township, Mich., have had it: first, the annual Run Thru Hell race has grown to Biblical proportions. The unincorporated hamlet of Hell, Mich., is within Putnam’s town limits, and hundreds of participants in the footrace, and even more spectators, bring heavy crowds and heavier traffic. But what really did things in was the 666 Party to celebrate the date oddity of June 6, 2006, which brought 12,000 people to the area. To help plan for future crowds, local officials have passed a law requiring any event which expects 750 or more participants to get a permit. Hell’s honorary mayor, John Colone, who hosted the 666 Party, promises to cooperate. (RC/Livingston Press & Argus) ...You might find that surprising, but Hell, Mich., freezes over every year.
