    The Village of Yellow Springs learned this week that federal grant funds that have long been committed for road construction within the Village commerce park have been withdrawn.

  • Volleyballers athletes in body, heart

    The McKinney School eighth grade girls volleyball squad isn’t used to losing. So when the players faced their first competitive loss to Troy Christian last week, after going undefeated as seventh graders and starting out the year 3–0, Coach Chris Linkhart didn’t know how they’d react.
