    A soft-spoken and gentle man, Paul Graham doesn’t seem like a troublemaker. Yet in Yellow Springs a half century ago, Graham made considerable trouble for those who stood in the path of equal rights for all.

  • At Wildflower, style and community

    There isn’t a barber pole outside the new home for the Wildflower Salon, but proprietor Emily Anglemyer and her associate, Meghan Burrowes, hope that their hair salon offers the welcoming, community vibe of a classic barbershop.

  • Fighting cancer, but not alone

    Kelley Fox was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare form of cancer, in August. The Yellow Springs native retired from the Village in 2014 after 30 years of service, most recently as superintendent of electric and water distribution. He also served as an MTFR firefighter for 17 years. Here, he’s pictured with his wife, Christina, outside Tom’s Market, one of Kelley’s favorite local people-watching spots.

    The outpouring of support for Kelly Fox and his family has been extraordinary, the Foxes said. People have offered to cook meals, take the family’s trash cans to the curb and pitch in to keep the family business, Fox Trot Services, up and running.

  • Standing up for Standing Rock

    About 35 people gathered at the Yellow Springs Speedway last Friday to protest the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, which cuts through the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. The local protest is one of several efforts in Yellow Springs to call attention to the issue and support protestors in Standing Rock. Speedway’s parent company, Marathon, is a major investor in the pipeline project, and local protestors plan to continue pressuring the company with demonstrations each Friday in Yellow Springs and each Wednesday at Speedway’s Enon headquarters.
