  • Naturalist-teacher joins Glen Helen staff

    The Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center’s new director, Michael Blackwell, sat in his (outdoor) office, where he instructs school-age students and the OEC’s interns in naturalist skills and about the history and ecology of the Glen. Blackwell arrived in early October, and is “inheriting the OEC’s 60-year tradition.” (Photo by Dylan Taylor-Lehman)

    The office of Michael Blackwell, the new director of Glen Helen’s Outdoor Education Center (OEC), is a small trailer deep in the Glen. No more than 50 feet away is a fire pit, and the whole camp is ensconced in towering trees.

  • Food aid for villagers in need

    The Dayton Foodbank’s Andy Macy and Yellow Springs resident and volunteer Susan Pfeiffer distributed food items in Yellow Springs last month as part of the Foodbank’s mobile pantry. The pantry stops every fourth Tuesday of the month in Yellow Springs, and aims to provide food items to the quarter of the Yellow Springs population that qualifies to receive it. (Submitted photo)

    Given the higher median income and sense of community that characterizes Yellow Springs, it might be hard for some to imagine that there are residents who experience what is known as “food insecurity” — limited or uncertain access to food.

  • Happy to be home again

    Zo Van Eaton Meister and Dave Meister moved to Yellow Springs in 2009. For Zo, it was a homecoming to a village she’d been connected to since she was a child. The whole family is pictured in front of their Fair Acres home: from left, Sven, Kate, Zo, Dave, Jane and Nicholas. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    When people ask Zo Van Eaton Meister if she grew up in Yellow Springs, she usually replies, “Sort of.” The story of her connection to the village is complicated.

  • Fruit fly

    The Mullin family’s 13th annual Pumpkin Launch at Moonshadow Farm off of St. Rte. 370 launched another victim via a homemade trebuchet, Saturday, Nov 7.

Among them were, from left, Will Gregor, Teresa Dunphy, Tommaso Gregor, Beth Holyoke and Andy Holyoke. (Photo by Matt Minde)

    Last Wednesday, Xenia Avenue was lined, as it sometimes is, with people holding signs with bold political slogans and rallying for social justice for women.

  • Villagers volunteer for Hillary

    In her almost 90 years, Betty Ford has never before volunteered to help in a presidential campaign. But this year, several times a week, Ford can be found at a local home making calls to get out the vote for Hillary Clinton.
