  • There is water on Mars…

    Looking a little bit like waterlogged Martians, Yellow Springs residents, from left, Elijah and Judah Williams and Liam Cooney, splashed around in the shallow end at Gaunt Park this month, seeking a little relief from the heat.

But temperatures are expected to climb back up to 94 degrees this week with a humidity factor that makes it feel like 101. In that kind of heat, the only thing to do is get back in the water.
