  • Writer wields power of her pen

    “Azimuths,” the third novel by local author Rebecca Morean, was published earlier this month. Morean has written screenplays, short stories and six other novels, and teaches composition at Sinclair Community College. She maintains that writing is empowerment. “If you’re empowered, you know where to get answers to your questions, and how to ask them.” (YS News archive photo by Megan Bachman)

    According to Rebecca Morean, a writer and Yellow Springs resident, knowing how to write can inspire confidence in any situation. Writing helps hone critical thinking skills, and helps organize and articulate thoughts.

  • ‘Trash Tree’ irks some, inspires others

    Tom Clevenger, a member of Zero Waste Yellow Springs, a group affiliated with the YS Resilience Network, stands next to the “Trash Tree” they created to raise awareness around issues of consumption and waste during the holidays. The tree, made of trash bags stuffed with newspaper, proved surprisingly controversial. Erected in the alley next to the Emporium, it was up for just four days last week; it was damaged and, ultimately, dismantled before group members took the remainder of the tree down last Thursday.

    Activism or eyesore? Statement or nuisance? Needed or not?
    These were some of the questions raised by last week’s “Trash Tree,” an installation created by Zero Waste Yellow Springs, a small group affiliated with the YS Resilience Network that formed about a year ago.
