  • 2017 Year in review: Village Life

    Yellow Springers — and most of the United States — spent the afternoon of Aug. 21 staring up at a waning midday sun as the moon moved across its face. The eclipse was partial here — 89 percent — but still well worth seeing. From top, clockwise, Karen Gardner caught a glimpse; Rebecca Holihan went old-school with a plate of candle-sooted glass; Olive Cooper glanced up; a lens focused the image safely on a white piece of paper; Gavin Van Meter, Trinidad Speck and Quinn Van Meter wielded welding masks, a safe yet slightly creepy viewing apparatus; James Crawford used a pinhole box to image the phenomenon.

    2017 Year in review: Village Life

  • Holiday traditions, silly and sweet

    In the Denman family at the holiday season, one family member each year dressed up as Santa Claus, and the others dressed up as that person or something about that person’s experience. This photo shows Matt Denman in 1988 dressed as his grandmother, who is, obviously, dressed as Santa. According to Donna Denman, one year the person playing Santa was a film student, so the rest of the family dressed as characters from a Bergman film. (Submitted photo)

    Each year at this time the News assembles a story based on readers’ submissions on a holiday theme. This year we asked readers to share stories of holiday traditions that are meaningful to them and their families.

  • Village Council— Blacks get more citations

  • BLOG—Rest in Hell, Bernard Law

    Jesus defined the wicked as those who do not operate their lives based upon the principles of love, mercy, compassion, and equanimity. Sadly, Christians have long fallen short of these ideals.
