  • Main Squeeze under new ownership— A smooth blend of old, new

    Xenia couple Debi Yawn and David Lee purchased Main Squeeze last week from Donna Lynn Johnson, who opened the juice bar in 2006. Yawn and Lee said they plan to keep selling Main Squeeze’s signature smoothies and juices while they add more food items to the menu. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

  • GMHA gardens on chopping block

    Daniel Pearson planted a low-maintenance cover crop of violets in the backyard of his Lawson Place residence.

Pearson worries herbicides will be used to kill the vegetation, which is out of compliance with the property owners, Greene Metropolitian Housing Authority. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Patricia High is dejected because she has until July 1 to transplant most of her beautiful garden at her Lawson Place unit, or the Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority will remove the plantings.
