    The once-a-year chance to peek inside a local artist’s studio and discover their process draws some of the biggest art-loving crowds to Yellow Springs each October.

  • Women’s shelter started in Yellow Springs

    Local resident Susan Stiles helped found the Family Violence Prevention Center — informally known as the Xenia Women’s Shelter — in Greene County in 1979.

    It was the year Martin Van Buren became the eighth president of the United States. Two months after his inauguration, New York City’s major banks failed, igniting the “Panic of 1837.” And in that same year, right here in Yellow Springs, the United Methodist Church held its first meetings.

  • Local man seeks change in Ohio

    Being a Yellow Springer, and a long shot, Democratic candidate Jeff Robertson’s run for the Ohio Senate — an ambitious undertaking in a Republican-leaning district — is anything but conventional. At a campaign fundraiser at The Winds Cafe this week, Robertson eschewed a tie, served an all-vegetarian meal, spent more time reading from his recently published political thriller than stumping, and seemed more interested in raising awareness than raising money.
