  • ‘Trash Tree’ irks some, inspires others

    Tom Clevenger, a member of Zero Waste Yellow Springs, a group affiliated with the YS Resilience Network, stands next to the “Trash Tree” they created to raise awareness around issues of consumption and waste during the holidays. The tree, made of trash bags stuffed with newspaper, proved surprisingly controversial. Erected in the alley next to the Emporium, it was up for just four days last week; it was damaged and, ultimately, dismantled before group members took the remainder of the tree down last Thursday.

    Activism or eyesore? Statement or nuisance? Needed or not?
    These were some of the questions raised by last week’s “Trash Tree,” an installation created by Zero Waste Yellow Springs, a small group affiliated with the YS Resilience Network that formed about a year ago.

  • The Memories Party, a PBL project— Personal stories connect kids, seniors

    Mills Lawn second-grader Lillianna Sylvester showed her original story to Nancy Hirsch during last week’s Memories Party at the school. The party was the culmination of a project-based learning project aimed at developing empathy in youngsters by sharing memories with Yellow Springs seniors. (Photo by Matt Minde)

    It may not be obvious that Zach Underwood, age 8, and Helen Eier, age 85, have things in common, but they recently discovered they do. For instance, they both like cats. They like camping.

  • Council says ‘no’ to ACE


    After more than a year of community dialogue, Village Council voted on Monday, Dec. 7, to leave the Greene County ACE Task Force, which fights drug-related crime.

  • Back to Now reprises, surprises

The vintage/recycled shop sells gently worn clothing for women and men, jewelry, decorative items, antiques and a small selection of used CDs and LPs. It’s open seven days a week through the holiday season; hours may vary slightly, but are usually 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (photo by Audrey Hackett)

    Springboro resident Marilyn Grounds had an “aha” moment visiting her son in East Nashville this summer. Browsing the city’s shops and finding unusual items that she loved, she realized that she wanted not just to buy interesting things, but also to sell them.

  • Classes are new focus of pot shop

    Its incorporation this past summer as a nonprofit organization was a defining marker in the 40-year history of John Bryan Community Pottery. More than a book-keeping designation, the tax-exempt status is helping shape how the facility moves forward as a community-based ceramics center.
