  • Toxic sites are under control

    Over the past two decades, Vernay, along with Morris Bean & Company, YSI, Inc. and the Village Water Reclamation plant, have all been point sources of pollution to local ground and surface water. But through their efforts and work with the U.S. and Ohio Environmental Protection Agencies, all four point sources of area water pollution have made strides to control and mitigate the damage they caused to the local watershed.

  • Closing one door—Bittersweet goodbyes for the chief

    Yellow Springs Police Chief John Grote is retiring at the end of this month after 25 years with the department. He’s shown here at his daily morning duty helping Mills Lawn School kids get out of cars and into the school safely. A reception for Chief Grote, plus two other Village retirees, will take place Thursday, March 29, at 11:30 a.m. in rooms A and B at the Bryan Center.

    After 25 years on the local force, Yellow Springs Police Chief John Grote’s last day on the job will be Friday, March 30. While his decision was mainly sparked by health concerns — he’s diabetic and has had two heart attacks in recent years — he also feels he has run his course as the Yellow Springs chief.

  • C of C efforts pay off— Village a mecca for many

    Christa Thomas, left, and Jen Foley celebrated the local St. Patrick’s Day festivities with their children, Aeridan and Oriah. The Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce organized the “Shamrocks & Shenanigans” pub crawl, which drew swarms of visitors to the village on a sunny Saturday.

    A mecca for arts lovers. A thoroughfare for avid bicyclists and hikers. A place to soak up street life and people watch. And now, a town in which slightly buzzed tourists can wander from bars to restaurants to shops.
