  • YSAC grapples with funding loss

    It’s been a year since the Morgan Foundation announced its suspension of about $1 million in annual grants to local and regional agencies. While the funding loss cut a swath through local nonprofits, the Yellow Springs Arts Council, or YSAC, was hit hardest, as the organization in recent years relied on the foundation for most of its operating costs.

  • A risky, comic ‘Joan D’Arc’

    Charlotte Walkey, left, gave an impassioned monologue as Joan of Arc during a rehearsal for “D’Arc Comedy,” a play that opens at the Antioch Amphitheatre at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 31. Behind Joan, looking on unimpressed by her speech, are the saints of her visions, St. Michael (Thor Sage), St. Catherine (Miriam Eckenrode-Saari) and St. Margaret (Ali Thomas). “D’Arc Comedy” is the first production of the new Yellow Springs Theater Company.

    Starving in a prison cell in France awaiting trial for heresy, the 15th century teenage heroine Joan of Arc had little to laugh about.

    But add comedic banter between the saints in her visions, a puppet show reenacting the entire 100 Years War between France and England, and the high drama of a modern cable television talk show, “Saint Chat,” and suddenly a story that ends with a burning at the stake may seem funny.

And while the Village asks that residents continue to conserve water where possible (minimizing lawn watering), the facility’s two other filters are keeping up with demand.
