  • ‘Potterluck’ pushes fun, literacy

    Yellow Springs High School seniors R.C. Worrell, left, and Phillip Kellogg are holding a two-part Harry Potter-themed event this weekend as their senior project, hoping to both entertain their peers and to raise money for literacy. The event, at Yellow Springs High School, begins with a 6 p.m. potluck on Saturday, April 9, followed by a 9 p.m. lock-in. Proceeds from the potluck and lock-in, which each have a suggested $5 donation, will benefit Book Aid, a British literacy organization. (Photo by Kelsey Cundiff)

    The senior project requirements given to every senior at Yellow Springs High School state that each student’s project should “reflect a meaningful purpose that is either geared toward social action and community, self-education and growth, or education and facilitation.” This year’s group of seniors has taken those ideals to heart to produce a number of projects that could benefit the community.

    Though it is difficult to predict the future of the Yellow Springs economy, the subtle job loss and flat tax revenues to the Village over the past decade indicate that the Village budget will continue to be tight in the coming years.

  • Tornado alert not up to speed

    Spring is tornado season, and forecasters say the Ohio Valley may be in the path of more severe weather than usual. Villagers would do well to consider their safety plans before the tornado warning sirens sound.
