  • Support for YS schools unique

    Tuesday, Nov. 6, was a good day for progressive voters. But throughout the Miami Valley, it was a bad night for one of the biggest progressive issues of our time: public education.

  • Ryan rallies local support at dairy

    It was a little overcast and a bit blustery. But that didn’t stop more than 2,000 supporters from showing up at last Saturday’s Paul Ryan rally at Young’s Jersey Dairy. And a number of the Republican vice-presidential candidate’s supporters hailed from Yellow Springs.

  • Canvassers blow in from the West

    A group of Northern California Democrats left 80-degree weather to brave the cold, November winds of Ohio in hopes of pushing the swing state further left this election. On Monday the four Californians, members of the West Yolo Democratic Club, warmed up at the Emporium before heading out to canvas for Yellow Springs congressional candidate Sharen Neuhardt in Fairborn in 40-degree blistery cold.

    Being a Yellow Springer, and a long shot, Democratic candidate Jeff Robertson’s run for the Ohio Senate — an ambitious undertaking in a Republican-leaning district — is anything but conventional. At a campaign fundraiser at The Winds Cafe this week, Robertson eschewed a tie, served an all-vegetarian meal, spent more time reading from his recently published political thriller than stumping, and seemed more interested in raising awareness than raising money.
