  • Two ways to share in the holidays

    Food pantry volunteers Jean Shook, Patti McAllister, Jackie Hammond, Don Rudolf and Don Fulton put away donated items this week at the Yellow Springs Community Food Pantry in the basement of the Methodist Church. Demand for food and household goods at the pantry rises during th holiday season, and so do community donations. (Photo by Megan Bachman)

    While it took several hauntings for Ebenezer Scrooge to transform from a stingy miser to a charitable giver, villagers have already embodied the holiday spirit this season with generous donations of food and gifts to two long-time local projects.

  • A civil rights milestone, 50 years on

    Hundreds of local and area students, residents and law enforcement officials jammed downtown Yellow Springs on Xenia Avenue during a chaotic March 1964 demonstration against Lewis Gegner for refusing to cut the hair of black people at his barbershop. Fifty years ago this month, African-American resident Paul Graham began a legal case against Gegner that reached the Ohio Supreme Court. (Photo courtesy of Scott Sanders, Antiochiana)

    Fifty years ago this month, African-American villager Paul Graham walked into Lewis Gegner’s barbershop on Xenia Avenue, sat down in his barber chair and asked for a haircut. “I can’t cut your hair,” the white barbershop owner replied, according to Graham’s account. “I don’t know how.
