  • Yellow Springs stocked with hidden holiday treasures

    It may not be self-evident that the jewelry store known as Rita Caz is selling canes, umbrellas, a collapsible telescope with 40x magnification, and eight-pound copper rings used as West African currency at the turn of the century.

  • Get great goods, greater good locally

    Across the country last weekend, crowds of frenzied shoppers descended upon big box stores to find bargains for the holidays, standing in line overnight, pounding on doors, and then, at opening time, dashing down aisles to grab bargains.

  • Vernay to demolish building

    After sitting idle and mostly empty for the past four years, the Vernay Laboratories Dayton Street facility is set for demolition in mid-December.

  • New name, new head for The Antioch Company

    The year 2008 has been a momentous time of change for The Antioch Company and its leaders. With the sale of Antioch Publishing, Lee Morgan’s retirement as president and CEO of the company in June, and his wife Vicki Morgan’s retirement two months prior…

  • Residents question Cemex standards

    In a panel discussion held Thursday night, Aug. 27, and organized by Village Environmental Commission to clarify Cemex’s plans to test burn tires as a partial fuel for the cement plant down the road, the clearest thing that emerged from the panel discussion was the distrust for Cemex among residents of Yellow Springs.

  • Find farm fare and friends at market

    Carrie and Glen Smith stole away from their uncle Danny McGovern’s veggie stand to sample the scents of White Mountain Honey Farm’s beeswax soaps.
