  • Autumn’s Fair

    The 2015 Autumn Street Fair pulled a substantial amount of people from out of town to enjoy a variety of crafts, food, and music throughout the day. Clear skies and cool temperatures no doubt contributed to the success of the event, which has been a tradition in town for quite some time.

  • A home that’s hard to leave

    Jeanne and Hardy Ballantine stand in front of the extensive library of their North Walnut Street home. The couple have lived in Yellow Springs since 1973 and are relocating to Amherst, Mass., to be closer to their three children. Despite the excitement of a new place, bidding goodbye to Yellow Springs isn’t easy. “We’ve spent most of our lives here,” Hardy said simply. (Photo by Dylan Taylor-Lehman)

    How does one sum up what constitutes home? A place? A dictionary definition? A combination of family and comfort and growth? The term is as complex as the sensation it attempts to define.

  • Longtime raptor caretaker retires

    A conservative estimate of the number of birds Betty Ross has handled in her nearly 30 years at the Raptor Center might be 4,500.
