  • Better food for village schools?

    On Aug. 5 school board members voted for the first major change to the school lunch program since 1994. The board unanimously chose Sodexo, one of the largest multinational food service providers, over Child Nutrition Services, which had been providing the service. Parents in attendance urged the board to try the new vendor, but also […]

  • New dean, home room at YSHS

    Julie Speelman is the new dean of students and athletic diretor at YSHS and McKinney Middle School.

    When students arrive for their first day back to Yellow Springs High School and McKinney Middle School on Wednesday, Aug. 26, the first thing they will notice is a spritely young woman they don’t recognize greeting them at the door. They don’t know her yet, but by the end of the week they might feel like they’ve known Julie Speelman all their lives.

  • Schools end year in black

    At the July 9 school board meeting, Treasurer Joy Kitzmiller reported that the Yellow Springs school district ended the financially challenging 2008–2009 fiscal year in the black.

  • Sunday liquor sales sought

    There is a small movement afoot to allow Sunday liquor sales and consumption in the downtown business district, which could significantly affect village restaurants and also local nonprofit organizations. The local option issue is one for the November ballot that needs approval from a majority of registered voters in the village to allow businesses in the downtown precinct to sell liquor on Sundays.

  • Farmers corner new market

    Can there ever be too much locally grown, fresh fruit and vegetables in one town? Vendors at a new Yellow Springs farmers’ market think not, and they aim to give shoppers more variety by opening in the Corner Cone parking lot on Saturdays, just down the street from the farmers’ market at Kings Yard. Both markets open on May 2 and will continue Saturday mornings from 7 to 11:30 a.m. through the summer.

  • Brother Bear brews cup of kindness

    Patrick (aka “Brother Bear”) and Mindy Harney recently sat with their children, from left, Gracie, Elesha, Sophie and Molly on the steps outside Brother Bear’s Café, 118 Dayton Street. The café will be celebrating its grand opening Friday–Monday, April 17–20.

    “Last call on espresso bar!” That’s what patrons will typically hear just before closing time at Brother Bear’s Café, the new coffeehouse located at 118 Dayton Street (formerly the site of the Epic Book Shop). To know how the coffeehouse came to be (and how it almost never was) adds a unique cocoa-mocha twist to […]

  • Film feast: Little Art, eateries unite

    The Winds Cafe & Bakery owner Mary Kay Smith, left, Little Art Theatre owner Jenny Cowperthwaite, and Sunrise Cafe owner Brian Rainey are partnering up to offer Meal-and-a-Movie packages on Sundays with The Winds and Mondays with Sunrise.

    “We’re in a highly competitive industry that’s changing,” said Little Art Theatre owner Jenny Cowperthwaite in a recent interview. “Fewer people are seeing movies in theaters. It’s not just independent theaters like the Little Art that are experiencing declining attendance. It’s industry-wide.”

  • Young’s Jersey Dairy— Celebrating 140 years on the farm

    A Tuesday sampling of the Young's who were hard at work on the family farm this past week netted, from left, Jay, Ben, Stuart, Bill and Carl Young, Deb Young Whittaker and Dan Young for a brisk photo shoot in front of the original Young’s barn. Young’s Jersey Dairy is celebrating its 140th birthday this weekend with specials on ice cream, snacks and golf activities.

    Since the surge of the digital age made last year’s computer nearly obsolete, it seems that everything has changed. But the love of the farmstead has not. When the Young brothers realized that in the 1960s, it was a short jump to figuring out how to transform their historic farmstead into a business that would survive the ages.

  • New eatery touts Peruvian, U.S. foods

    Lawren and Diana Williams of Fairborn are opening their new restaurant, Williams Eatery and Gathering Place, at the beginning of this month. The restaurant, on the corner of Corry and Dayton streets, will feature both American and Peruvian food.

    “I was always drawn to the preparation of food,” said Lawren (“Lawrence without the c-e”) Williams. “My mom says some of her fondest memories of me are when I was real little and was always trying to create dishes. None of them were any good — I just liked the idea of preparing food!”

  • For a small town with big city needs, Tom’s delivers the goods

    Clockwise from back left, Tom Gray, Dave Trollinger, Elma Straley, Brenda Donley and 25 other full and part-time employees help keep the shelves at Tom’s Market fresh and well-stocked 365 days a year.

    For a small town grocery store, it might be considered unusual that Tom’s Market carries 16 kinds of olives, six kinds of tofu (if you count the Tofu Pups), ground lamb, Italian parsley and cheesecloth.
