  • Taking the knee, together

    Protesters at Saturday’s action took a knee and sang the national anthem while kneeling on one knee, a gesture of solidarity with NFL players who have done the same during the anthem. Pictured here, from left, are villagers Kelly Fox, Tina Fox, Dan Dixon, Maria Bakari, Sherry Walker and Aiysha Walker. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    At least 65 local protesters “took the knee” for racial justice last Saturday.

  • Street sweets

    The North Stafford and Union streets block party not only served as a late-summer gathering, but also as a graduation celebration for Horton, who recently received her master’s in mental health counseling. Pictured here, Jayden Toms was one of many block-partiers who cut, with gusto, into the big “Happy Graduation” cake. (Photos by Audrey Hackett)

    About 30 friends and neighbors, including about 10 kids, gathered in front of Heather Horton’s house on Saturday, Sept. 16, for the North Stafford and Union streets block party.

  • With Their Faces to the Sun

    A golden sea of petals seem to wave to visitors as they peruse the land saved by Whitehall Farm.

  • Activists are awake and watching

    Yellow Springs resident Susan Alberter (left front), the driving force behind Greene County Indivisible: Awake and Watching, was among a number of group members who participated in a rally Tuesday, Sept. 5, in downtown Dayton to protest the president’s efforts to rescind President Barack Obama’s executive order known as DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. An estimated 100 people, many from Yellow Springs, gathered outside U.S. Rep. Mike Turner’s regional office to urge Turner to help retain the legal status of 800,000 young people called “Dreamers.” (Photo by Carol Simmons)

    They’ve been dressing up in chicken suits each Monday and visiting downtown Dayton with signs suggesting that U.S. Representative Mike Turner, whose regional office is there, might be “a chicken” for not meeting yet this year with local constituents in a town hall setting.

    Nearly 40 canines and their human companions, along with one miniature horse, took part in the first Doggie Splash on Labor Day at the Gaunt Park pool.

  • Around the blocks

    Best to start them young! One of the youngest block party revelers — Juniper DeVore Leonard, almost 2 — enjoyed her moment in the sun, and on a blanket, at the Whiteman/Davis Triangle party on Sunday, Aug. 27. (Photo by Carol Simmons)

    It’s block party season, and the photos are coming in…
