    In certain eras, it has perhaps been easier to say that slavery and forced labor are wrong than to live that principle.

  • Pining for a greener forest

    After more than 50 years in an environment that was never meant for large conifers, the Glen’s pine forest appers to be thinning to extinction. (Photo by Jeff Simons)

    The Glen’s pine forest wasn’t all that big — less than 50 acres. For runners, bird watchers, and weekend trekkers it was a delightful destination. But the forest is disappearing, and it’s not the result of global warming, logging, or pollution.

  • When teaching is as fun as jamming

    The Yellow Springs Police Department typically fields a team of eight full-time and a half dozen part-time officers. Currently, there are six full-time officers and less than three active part-time officers, many of whom are being stretched to their limit and are often asked to cover shifts alone.

  • Not two-tired…

    The Antioch School held its recently-revived Anything On Wheels fundraising event Sunday, Sept. 23, where students, both present and past, ride from the school on Corry Street to Xenia and back for a total of about 15 miles on bicycles, unicycles, skateboards — anything on wheels. Experienced riders can choose to go the whole distance, while those new to wheels can ride around the path surrounding the school playground. Pictured above are, from left, graduate Jorie Sieck, Sam Linden (obscured), graduate Zack Brintlinger-Conn, Evelyn Potter, graduate Samantha Bold and Zenya Hoff-Miyazaki. Sieck and Brintlinger-Conn rode the entire 15 miles on unicycles, accompanied by Bold and Hoff-Miyazaki. They were met in the last stretch by their peers who had finished and circled back to bring them home. (Photo by Matt Minde)

  • Lawson gardens, fracking ban— Council reaches for authority

    Several Village Council members expressed regret during their meeting on Monday, Sept. 17, that they have not found a way to preserve all the gardens at the Lawson Place residences. Earlier in the month the Village had drafted an ordinance requiring a permit to remove the private landscaping that property owner Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority says must be removed by Oct. 1.

  • Oh, the places they’ve gone!

    Rwanda, Lithuania, Panama, China. What do these countries have in common? They’re all places Yellow Springers visited this past summer, many taking trips that combined vacation with work or educational opportunities. The stories they returned with provide tiny windows on the world outside the village.

  • Police chief search narrows

    In its search for a permanent chief of police, the Village of Yellow Springs has narrowed its options to three candidates, including current Interim Chief Arthur Scott, Central State University Police Chief Anthony Pettiford, and John Milstead, security manager for Dayton Metro Libraries. The Village is currently scheduling visits to the village for each of the candidates and will host a public forum with each of the candidates on Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Bryan Center.

  • A weekend of Wellness awaits

    In the late 1800s, Yellow Springs was a mecca for health and wellness as far-flung visitors flocked to the village to soak in the mineral-rich waters of the Yellow Spring. With hopes of re-igniting regional interest in the town’s alternative therapies, holistic health practitioners and artists have teamed up to put on this weekend’s Wellness Experience.
