  • What, are you yellow? Village celebrates the good scare

    As if black birds were pecking at our downtown garden, scarecrows — 35 at last count — have been popping up over the last two weeks, looming over visitors and villagers coming to town to see the latest creations. Ye Olde Trail Tavern owner Cathy Christian came up with the idea last year, and this year she teamed up with downtown business supporters Bob Swaney and Mindy Harney to make it happen. Ohio Silver owner Marcia Wallgren was caught gluing gems on her Silver Queen’s shoes Tuesday. See page 8, and visit ysnews.com to see more of the creative creatures. (Photo by Suzanne Ehalt)

    The scarecrows lining village streets portend a dark time ahead; Yelloween is coming, and the town is set to both attract tourists and to repulse them.
