    As the daughter of a Methodist minister, I learned early about the value of silence.

  • BLOG — Foolish mortals

    "Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding ... "

    The air is cooling, plants begin to wither and fade and more and more of the day is taken up by darkness. Halloween approaches.

  • BLOG — Toy paradise

    The act of a true miscreant.

    “What do you want for your birthday?” I asked my daughter. The answer was bliss for me.

  • BLOG — Chuck


    In keeping with this year’s “Guide to Yellow Springs” theme, Lauren (“Chuck”) talks about the thing that most connects her to the village: her name.

  • BLOG — Rougarou


    Lauren Shows took full advantage of her position as a “media representative” last week to run off to Cedar Point to ride a roller coaster.

  • BLOG — Stardust and meat

    Lucy shows a little dino love.

    What is it about kids and dinosaurs?

  • BLOG — Babycakes


    I can’t say precisely what it was in my life that caused me to have a nearly insatiable love for tiny things, but I do know that it began early.

  • BLOG — Legs are required

    Mermaids will always be cool. This is clear to me especially, as my four-year-old, Lucy, told me that a fish lady doll was her number one Yuletide wish this year.

  • BLOG — Five Years at the Snooze

    This has opened so many (weird) doors for me.

    Last month marked my fifth anniversary of working at the News. Since then, I’ve been thinking about writing a blog to commemorate this particular milestone.

  • BLOG — Single rider

    It was the one you can actually see in this picture.

    There is something a little strange about a grown person leaving her loving family behind for hours at a time to ride roller coasters, but everyone has her thing, and this is mine.
