  • Present gives voices to village past

    The Yellow Springs downtown of the early 1900s is superimposed on the Yellow Springs of today. In the same way, the village’s past comes alive on the Web pages of local history blogs started in recent years. The historical photo (c.1910) was taken from approximately the same location looking north on Xenia Avenue 100 years ago. Visible are the traction line, built in 1902, the Independent Order of the Odd Fellows building and new cement sidewalks. Visit ysnews.com for more photos in the “Past and Present” series.

    Yellow Springs’ founders and early settlers didn’t have Internet — they probably couldn’t have imagined it — but later generations are now using it to imagine the lives of former villagers.

    The local arts scene — and specifically this week’s Chamber Music Yellow Springs concert — can take some credit for bringing Dr. Alan Fark, a new physician, to town.

  • Blind pigs, turkeys, goats find home

    Nick Ormes cares for abandoned and neglected animals at the Ranch Menagerie Animal Sactuary on Village-owned property on US 68. He’s hoping to raise more money to feed his 73 animals through the winter and to raise awarness about the epidemic of stray, abandoned, neglected and abused animals. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    Nick Ormes can rattle off from memory the animals he looks after on his 12-acre animal sanctuary on US 68. Abandoned or neglected by their owners, these animals faced a life of suffering or the slaughterhouse until Ormes, 58, stepped in to save them.

    Many animals come to live on Nick Ormes’ animal sanctuary on U.S. 68 because they are abandoned, neglected or surrendered by their owners. Others arrive the natural way — by being born there.

  • Village a good host for babies

    The Yellow Springs Library hosts a toddler story hour every Thursday from 2–3 p.m., one of the many ways in which the village supports gatherings for families and their young children. Last week Paige Clark and Alex Finney, foreground, hung out with Ann Fay and her son David, Laura Funderburg and her son Carson, and Carrie Finney and her infant son Tommy. (Photo by Lauren Heaton)

    When Laura Funderburg had her son, Carson, now almost 2, she knew the village was a better fit for the way she wanted to raise her son. And the warm community of parents and children she has found in the village erased all doubt in her mind that she made the right decision.
