  • YS tree man keeps planting at 96

    At age 96, Lloyd Kennedy is still planting trees and serving as inspiration for others on the Yellow Springs Tree Committee. The group has planted 2,000 trees in the village since it formed in the early 1980s. (Submitted photo)

    Lloyd Kennedy wants to give credit where credit is due. For instance, he makes clear that he was not the one who floated the idea, almost three decades ago, of organizing a volunteer group to plant trees in the village.

    Across town, heavy rains fill gutters, puddles pool on lawns and sump pumps struggle to keep basements dry. But this rainy April has area farmers worried as they delay planting and wait for their fields to dry.

  • File implicates gas industry

    Last week a Miami Township resident found a binder on her property containing what appeared to be a field guide for agents looking to lease private property for the purpose of oil and gas production.

  • A closer look at the Glen

    Nine of Glen Helen’s seasoned naturalists will lead a series of hands-on, family-friendly programs for Earth Day, Saturday, April 23, including a Tiny Things workshop led by naturalist Kathleen Soler, with Hannah Brewster at left. Events take place at the Outdoor Education Center and Raptor Center beginning at 8 a.m. with a youth and family fun run, followed by programs on fossils, backyard birds and Ohio wildlife.

    The nine naturalists who came last August to live in Glen Helen and lead the preserve’s educational programs throughout the year have grown fond of their home in the woods.

    Many parents may not know that holistic approaches — yoga, massage, aromatherapy, good nutrition, herbs — may help to prevent illness and injury in their children and lead to a long, healthy life.
