  • Ohio premiere of ‘Sparkle’

To have suffered a critical injury and attempt to come back at that age, with that company, is the gripping story of Dayton Contemporary Dance Company’s Sheri “Sparkle” Williams. A short film, “Sparkle,” by local filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar, will have its Ohio premiere in Dayton this week.

But they seemed to be more focused on the winds of political change.

  • Drafting the Village budget— Early numbers on target

    The Village of Yellow Springs came to its budget process early this year, and happily too, with most funds coming in close to budget and a sizable cash carry-over to pad the operation. With several more workshops planned for Village Council meetings on Nov. 5 and 23 and Dec. 5, the Village plans to get the coming year’s budget passed by early 2013.
