  • Closing one door—Bittersweet goodbyes for the chief

    Yellow Springs Police Chief John Grote is retiring at the end of this month after 25 years with the department. He’s shown here at his daily morning duty helping Mills Lawn School kids get out of cars and into the school safely. A reception for Chief Grote, plus two other Village retirees, will take place Thursday, March 29, at 11:30 a.m. in rooms A and B at the Bryan Center.

    After 25 years on the local force, Yellow Springs Police Chief John Grote’s last day on the job will be Friday, March 30. While his decision was mainly sparked by health concerns — he’s diabetic and has had two heart attacks in recent years — he also feels he has run his course as the Yellow Springs chief.

  • C of C efforts pay off— Village a mecca for many

    Christa Thomas, left, and Jen Foley celebrated the local St. Patrick’s Day festivities with their children, Aeridan and Oriah. The Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce organized the “Shamrocks & Shenanigans” pub crawl, which drew swarms of visitors to the village on a sunny Saturday.

    A mecca for arts lovers. A thoroughfare for avid bicyclists and hikers. A place to soak up street life and people watch. And now, a town in which slightly buzzed tourists can wander from bars to restaurants to shops.

  • Nudes reveal arts controversy

    Attendees at the “Women’s Voices Out Loud,” performance took in the controversial art exhibit in the John Bryan Community Gallery at intermission. In the foreground is local artist Deb Housh’s painting, “More Nudes Please.” After several Village employees who work in the John Bryan Community Center complained about nudity and sexual content in artwork at the annual exhibit, Council decided to develop a local public art policy.

  • Bender honored for WWII service

    Villager Jonas Bender will be honored soon for his World War II military service, when he was part of the first group of African Americans to join the Marines. Called the Montford Point Marines, the group was subjected to racism and segregation while in the military. The group will receive the Congressional Gold Medal this spring for its contributions to the war effort. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    As a boy growing up in Mississippi, Jonas Bender knew about racism and segregation. But living in “the oasis of integration” that was the college town of Tougaloo, Bender knew about racism mainly from other people’s stories.

  • Real watershed moments for area

    Hikers carefully navigated the stepping stones across Birch Creek in the Glen Helen Nature Preserve last weekend. The three local rivers that run through the Glen—Birch Creek, Yellow Springs Creek and the Little Miami River—drain runoff from village streets and area farms. Any contamination in the local watershed eventually makes its way into the Glen, impacting ecosystem health and recreational activities. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Where Yellow Springs begins and ends is defined by clear political boundaries. But the village also exists within an ecosystem that has boundaries of its own. An important one is its watershed, an area of land that drains into a common waterway.

  • Village to begin sidewalk repair
