  • Trolander’s lifetime of triumphs

    Longtime villager and YSI Incorporated founder Hardy Trolander was honored last month when he was inducted into Dayton’s Engineering and Science Hall of Fame. Trolander’s childhood love of taking radios apart, to which he has returned in his retirement, led to his lifelong interest in invention.

    The early radio was one of the simplest electric circuits that existed in the 1930s, but for a monumentally curious 10-year-old Hardy Trolander, that mysterious machine was the door to a lifetime of inventing and improving the art of problem-solving.

  • Give the gift of services

    The pearly downtown lights may beckon shoppers to charming storefronts, but shopping locally for the holidays doesn’t have to mean objects wrapped in big packages. Especially for the person who already has everything, think envelopes with gift certificates for a yoga class…

  • Building expenses spark Presbyterian finance woes

  • Vernay to demolish building

    After sitting idle and mostly empty for the past four years, the Vernay Laboratories Dayton Street facility is set for demolition in mid-December.

  • YSHS ‘Midsummer’ mischief, mayhem with a ’50s flare

    In their 1950s version of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ Kelly Miller as Helena, center, is driven mad by her admirers, Demetrius, played by Max Fleishman, and Lysander, played by Adam Zaremsky, who is himself sought by Hermia, played by Zyna Bakari. The mischeivous Puck, Shelley Murphy, looks on from her perch. Performances will take place at Mills Lawn gym on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Nov. 16 and 23, at 2 p.m.

    If Shakespeare had lived in the 1950s, how he would have dressed, where he would have lived and the way he would have set his stage is surely just what the Yellow Springs High School thespians have dreamed up for the fall production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The program features the couple’s daughter, Chiara, pictured above, playing second cello on Schubert’s String Quintet.

    The chiming of church bells outside Wendy Champney’s home in Zürich, Switzerland rang clear and strong to sound the 6 o’clock hour on Sunday. It was a reminder that the time left to prepare before she and her husband and daughter returned to her hometown of Yellow Springs was growing short.
