  • Kids learn chemistry by hand

    The Periodic Table, a chart of the earth’s elements organized by their chemical similarities, could be considered dry academic material. But make a game out of it, and suddenly the urge to know more about each element, its atomic weight and relation to the others, is not only necessary but kind of fun.

  • Allen McCullough— Village a musical wellspring

    Chamber Music Yellow Springs has commissioned a string quartet by Yellow Springs native Allen McCullough that will be performed by the Aeolus Quartet on Sunday, April 14. The piece was written for the Daedalus Quartet, who was scheduled to perform it this weekend, but an injury forced a change in plans. (Photo courtesy of Mercer University)

    From the level at which Allen McCullough listens, the average ear is way behind the times. In fact, he said, the lag time for modern music listeners isn’t a matter of a few years, but more like a century or two. And while Beethoven and Brahms created some of the most beautiful music in the world, McCullough believes it’s time for people to get a new sound. And by that he doesn’t mean Pink and Flo Rida.

  • B & B for sale by innkeeper

And though much of its charm is related to its history as a home of the college, it’s been humming as the town’s only sustained bed and breakfast for about 27 years.

  • Our big appetite for consumption

    We humans hunger for many things, from food to knowledge to comfort. As Americans, by virtue of economics, we have been feeding those hungers since the post-war era.
