  • Yarn Registry – Can Older Brothers be Trusted? (Probably not.)

    “When I was younger, I would try to get my brother to believe outrageous things. The idea was to tell him something plausible enough to sound legit but ridiculous enough that if he believed it, he would look dumb and I would look hilarious.”

  • Yarn Registry – at the strongman contest at the Greene County Fair

    In addition to the demolition derby and pee-wee goat show, visitors to the Greene County Fair were able to check out a strongman contest. The contestants are universally the kind of people you’d want around if you ever find yourself pinned under something you can’t move.

  • Yarn Registry BLOG – I just worked as a dive instructor in Colombia for six months.

    I worked at a dive shop in Colombia for six months earlier this year. Ours was an overnight place, where we stayed on the beach three nights a week. It takes a lot of training to get to that level. But once you get there it’s a dream job. You’re in the water every day. You live in beautiful places.

  • YARN REGISTRY – I am a professional indexer. I write the indexes in the backs of books.

    “If you go to a history book and you just want to read about the Gettysburg Address, go to the index and look up “Gettysburg Address.” That’s what an index is. I make that. I read the book and pull out the things that go into the index, and I write the index.”

  • BLOG – I decided I would try the World Naked Bike Ride

    Recently, I wrote an ode to my bike after a particularly fun bike ride. This past week, my bike and I got closer still, when I rode it naked through the streets of downtown Columbus.

  • BLOG – Ode to my Bike

    Being able to bike this trail was exactly why I like biking so much: you can explore without limits, indulge your imagination, and physically connect with the world around you, all at your own pace.

  • Yarn Registry BLOG – Rumor has it Lee Harvey Oswald was in Yellow Springs

    According to some theorists, at one point Yellow Springs was said to host none other than Lee Harvey Oswald, the man behind the Kennedy assassination. Was he really here? Why? How? Was it all just part of a larger CIA-led plot?

  • The Rumpke Landfill and Recycling Center: a YS News pictorial

    An article published in this week’s paper discusses a recent tour of the Rumpke landfill and recycling center organized by Vickie Hennessy and Zero Waste Yellow Springs. Words cannot do the facilities justice.

  • BLOG – MTFR has a futuristic new stretcher

    Fortunately for the backs of the MTFR crew, the department recently got a new cot that will take some of the strain of lifting stretchers for them. Their new cot is a brand new power cot, a cot with a hydraulic lift system capable of hoisting 700 pounds.

  • BLOG – The history of Greene County is still interesting

    Greene County’s first Women’s Christian Temperance Union was formed in 1874 and reportedly closed down thirteen saloons in three weeks, and the first piano in Ohio, and “certainly the first west of the Alleghenies,” was made by a resident of Greene County.
