  • Photo contest deadline soon; but be safe!

    The sunflowers in the field just north of Yellow Springs are a big draw this time of year. Shown above are several women from Columbus who last year took time to photograph the flowers just after attending a yoga workshop in town.

    The deadline for the Tecumseh Land Trust Sunflower Photo Competition is Sept. 14. However, those slowing down to look at the sunflowers in the field just north of Yellow Springs should do so with care, as two recent accidents have been linked to sunflower-gawkers.

  • The Little Library that could

    Love of reading can now be shared at a neighborhood level using the new tiny library in Moya Shea’s yard at 310 South High Street. The little library operates more like a swap: take a book, leave a book. If the cranberry crate seems too small to serve the whole neighborhood, visit the Little Free Libraries website and learn how to start a library in your front yard.

    Many positive things can be said about libraries, including that they can’t be too small and a town can’t have too many.

    Local mosquitoes tested positive last week for West Nile Virus, a potentially serious illness, prompting the Greene County Combined Health District to begin spraying insecticide in one village neighborhood.

  • Tour Lawson Place gardens

    Daniel Pearson planted a low-maintenance cover crop of violets in the backyard of his Lawson Place residence. The violets don’t need to be mowed, keep the ground from getting waterlogged and provide a tasty treat to Pearson, he said. Pearson worries herbicides will be used to kill the vegetation, which is out of compliance with the property owners, Greene Metropolitian Housing Authority. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Friends of the Lawson Place gardens invite the community to attend a garden tour on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 4 p.m.
