  • A benefit bee for midwives-to-be

    Villagers Ash Dasuqi (with son, Holden) and Pamela Williams will be heading to El Paso, Texas, next month to enroll in Maternidad La Luz, a midwifery school and holistic birthing clinic there. To raise funds for their immersive year of midwifery training, the two women have organized an Adult Spelling Bee, which will be held on Sunday, Jan. 10, at 6 p.m. at the Emporium.

    Two friends from Yellow Springs are answering a call to midwifery — and hoping for helping hands to aid the work of their own.

    Chalk it up to the numinous power radiating from the area or the loyalty of the store’s fanbase, but the House of Ravenwood is on a roll. Yellow Springs’ premier “metaphysical rock shop” recently expanded its square footage, increasing the store’s size by about a third in mid-November.

    Collaboration was inevitable. Two talented painters who verged on similar styles in a town that bubbles with creative juices would no doubt cross swords either in peace or conflict one of these days, and that is what Martin Borchers and Zane Reichert have done.

  • World-class cellist, local roots

    Switzerland’s Chiara Enderle, whose family has deep roots in the Yellow Springs community, will perform with the Springfield Symphony Orchestra on Jan. 16. The concert will feature Enderle as soloist in Dvorak’s Cello Concerto, “one of the most epic cello concertos, full of power and majestic strength.” (submitted Photo © Jannette Kneisel)

    Yellow Springs, already a highly musical village, counts a Swiss classical music star as part of its family circle. Switzerland’s Chiara Enderle, whose family has deep roots in the Yellow Springs community, is a rising star in the European classical music scene and routinely plays around the world as a featured soloist.

  • Your mission? Count every bird

    Villager Gabe Amrhein adds another bird to the local count at Sunday’s Christmas Bird Count, organized by Glen Helen Director Nick Boutis. Nine people, most of them Yellow Springers, took part in the annual winter bird census, which covers local bird haunts. Amrhein counted 34 species and 525 individual birds. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    It sounded like an impossible task: count every bird in Glen Helen and beyond. Birds like the tiny golden-crowned kinglet, barely bigger than a hummingbird, and the great blue heron, a solitary dweller in the area’s streams and ponds.
