  • Amazing moms and dads of T-ball

    Erasmus “Raz” Thornton, Lidija Lackovich-Van Gorp, Maddy McGuire and Darija Lackovich-Van Gorp took part in some T-ball shenanigans on a recent Friday evening.

    It says in our “Guide to Yellow Springs” entry that the Perry League is a self-supporting, all-volunteer beginners’ baseball program for all our community’s children regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, ability or disability, sexual, spiritual or religious orientation. Self-supporting? We spent $1,800 this summer on T-shirts, baseball caps, a dozen new soft dot […]

  • Hip-hop in the street this week

    Miami Township Trustees voted at their meeting this month to place a Township Fire-Rescue levy renewal on the ballot in November.
