    Budget season is in full swing. At its last two meetings, Oct. 5 and Oct. 20, Village Council reviewed the proposed 2016 Village budget, which, according to Assistant Village Manager/Finance Director Melissa Vanzant, is “in better shape than in the past,” thanks in part to “more conservative” spending and proposed utility rate increases that, if passed, will bring new revenue to the Village’s enterprise funds.

    “If you’ve been in town for over a year, then you’ll know someone” participating in this year’s Ten-Minute Play Festival, says Ali Thomas, a co-producer with Miriam Eckenrode Saari of the latest local short-play showcase.

    Only a fraction of Glen Helen is currently under the jurisdiction of Yellow Springs, but an annexation proposal put forth by Glen Helen’s director, Nick Boutis, at last week’s Village Council meeting could bring many more acres into the village.

  • Big Lens zooms in on village

    The experimental dance film “Anesthesiaphobia” by Liz Yong Lowe was filmed almost entirely inside the Antioch Foundry Theater in the summer of 2014. The film is part of the biggest Big Lens Film Festival Wright State University film students have held in several years. Most of the films, created in Yellow Springs or by local residents, will screen at a gala Friday, Oct. 16, at the Dayton Art Institute. (Submitted Photo)

    Like its sibling arts of theater and literature, film counts setting — a sense of place —- as a significant building block.

    An abrupt firing at St. Paul Catholic Church last month has touched off anger and deepened unease among parishioners who believe that their once close-knit community is unraveling under the leadership of Father Anthony Geraci, St. Paul’s pastor since 2008.

    The distinctions bestowed upon the Little Miami Scenic Trail are numerous. The Trail, running through Yellow Springs from Springfield to Cincinnati and ultimately branching off and connecting with metro trails in Columbus and Dayton, is the longest connected paved trail system in the U.S.
