  • Oh, the places they’ve gone!

    Rwanda, Lithuania, Panama, China. What do these countries have in common? They’re all places Yellow Springers visited this past summer, many taking trips that combined vacation with work or educational opportunities. The stories they returned with provide tiny windows on the world outside the village.

  • Police chief search narrows

    In its search for a permanent chief of police, the Village of Yellow Springs has narrowed its options to three candidates, including current Interim Chief Arthur Scott, Central State University Police Chief Anthony Pettiford, and John Milstead, security manager for Dayton Metro Libraries. The Village is currently scheduling visits to the village for each of the candidates and will host a public forum with each of the candidates on Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Bryan Center.

  • A weekend of Wellness awaits

    In the late 1800s, Yellow Springs was a mecca for health and wellness as far-flung visitors flocked to the village to soak in the mineral-rich waters of the Yellow Spring. With hopes of re-igniting regional interest in the town’s alternative therapies, holistic health practitioners and artists have teamed up to put on this weekend’s Wellness Experience.

  • Healing with ancient ways

    Virgil Mayor Apostol tends to get on people’s nerves.

    Alyce Earl Jenkins may have stumbled by accident into the nascent field of rehabilitation counseling in the mid-1960s, but it was no accident how much this longtime villager contributed to the discipline over a distinguished four-decade career. For that work, which focused on helping those with physical and mental disabilities find work, she will be inducted into the Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame this month.

  • An eye on arts, crafts at Cyclops

    Organizers of Cyclops Fest, returning this weekend for its second year, like to compare their handmade fair to a farmers’ market. At both, patrons buy high quality goods that are locally and lovingly hand-produced directly from those who labored to make them — only instead of heirloom tomatoes, Cyclops patrons can purchase jewelry, apparel, handbags, paper goods, bath products and more.
