  • Tales of hauntings in the village

    Apparitions and ghostly music at Ye Olde Trail Tavern. Loaves of bread flying off the counter at the Sunrise Cafe. Disembodied voices in Antioch’s Main Building. Chairs traveling through the air in the Union Schoolhouse. A phantom walking around John Bryan State Park.

  • On Halloween, boo to you, too

    After six years telling ghost stories for children during Halloween season, the Yellow Springs Tale Spinners — from left, Jonatha Wright, Harold Wright and Eric Wolf — will tell scary tales for adults only this Sunday, Oct. 31, at 10 p.m. at the Clifton Opera House. The group will also tell ghost stories for children this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 29 and 30, at 7:30 p.m. at the Spooky Barn at Young’s Jersey Dairy. Not shown is troupe member Lisa Holmes.

    Have you heard about the ghost cows in the village, and the long-dead owner who some people still hear calling his herd? Or about the retired steamboat captain who built a home the shape of his ship, with a bell that allegedly can still be heard on foggy nights?

  • Musical renewal for Havurah

    The spiritual activities of the Yellow Springs Havurah have always been done in an organized but less than dogmatic manner. The group of 15–20 active members observes the Sabbath each week on the Antioch College campus that informs its friendly tone.

  • Which came first, the bunny or the egg?

    The Easter Bunny will grace the slopes of Gaunt Park again with hundreds of brightly colored Easter eggs this Saturday.

    Amani Wagner, left, and Hailey Qualls bowed their heads to the wind and plucked as many eggs from the Gaunt Park hill as their baskets could hold.

  • That’s some long hare

    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.

  • Strangers — and friends — in the night

    Frigid weather didn’t keep several hundred people from showing up downtown at just before midnight last Wednesday night for the beloved New Year’s Eve Yellow Springs Ball Drop. Shown above are, clockwise from top left, President-elect Obama made a surprise but somewhat flat appearance; Amy Magnus offered hors d’oeuvres to strangers; Olivia Byrnes, Maddi McGraw, Nick Erber, Jason Ellis, Vanessa Query, Emily Guhde and Mada; and Leslie and Bob Welsh waited for the coming new year.

  • 25 days of Christmas kindness

    Villager Matt Ishihara was surprised by two secret Santas, who brought him 25 gifts to open each day until Christmas. The gifts have helped to lift his spirits during the first holiday season since the death of his wife.

    Tenderly opening the squeezably soft and lightweight tube-shaped present wrapped in snowflake paper, Matt Ishihara’s face lit up when the contents were finally revealed.
