  • Brewery pauses to expand

    Nate Cornett and Lisa Wolters, owners of Yellow Springs Brewery, temporarily shut down production this month for an expansion that will allow them to brew fives times as much craft beer as they were this past year, their second year in business. They will soon move nine 30-barrel stainless steel brew tanks from storage at the former Creative Memories building to the brewery at MillWorks. (Photo by Lauren Heaton)

    “You have to think and pray outside of the box,” said Pastor Rick Jones, the new pastor at Yellow Springs United Methodist Church. He prefers to operate outside the box because he knows all parishioners are not the same, and his pastoral MO is to serve people on a more personal basis.

  • An actor’s mystery, a puzzle of a play


    Imagine this: theater production where you are given a script moments before you are thrust on stage, alone. There are few props to hide behind, only a table and two cups of water, and the performance requires that you act out whatever the script commands.

    Each year brings fresh faces to Yellow Springs schools — and this year there are even more of them. The district has made 13 new teaching and administrative hires to-date for the 2015–16 school year, up from around five in a typical year, said Superintendent Mario Basora at last week’s school board meeting. Resignations, retirements and new or expanded positions were responsible for the increase.
