  • Guns and mental health— Experts note issues separate

    Local resident T (who preferred to be anonymous to protect her family’s privacy) knew something was happening with her son when at 15 he was suddenly having trouble sleeping and began spending much time alone. The eccentric behavior quickly intensified, she said, and soon R began knocking on people’s doors singing Christmas carols and dressing in a suit to look for a job. That year R began home schooling and taking medication for depression and psychosis.

  • Village Council— Dispatch on chopping block

    The Periodic Table, a chart of the earth’s elements organized by their chemical similarities, could be considered dry academic material.

  • 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.
