  • Fourth of July festivities

    Yellow Springs will celebrate Independence day with a parade, a patriotic band concert and, of course, fireworks.

  • At t-ball, as tender as we can be

    I had a first last Friday night. When I pulled into Gaunt Park around 6:25 p.m. for our 6:30–8 p.m. evening of Perry League t-ball, there was not a soul in sight. Not a child on the diamond. Not a parent in the bleachers. Not a car in the parking lot.

  • Family Dental practice purchased

    The two dentists who recently assumed control of Yellow Springs Family Dental are more than professional partners. They’re also close friends, who see running a practice together as an excellent combination.

  • A piazza for dance, and community

    Judith Wolert-Maldonado, also known as DJ Juju, is hosting a series of Dance Piazzas this summer at 100 Corry Street. The next Dance Piazza, which takes place at 7 p.m. on July 2, will feature lessons on the bhangra dance of India. The free dances continue on the first and third Saturday of the month through September, and everyone is invited. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    Bringing people together to dance under an open sky resonates on many levels for Judith Wolert-Maldonado, who’s organized outdoor Dance Piazzas in the village every other Saturday night this summer.

  • Fun is afoot in Yellow Springs!

    The flash mob dance that took place during Street Fair is a recent example of creative and spontaneous fun in the village.

    Gardening is not just for green thumbs any more. As more and more local neighborhood gardens sprout, the Growers Exchange offers a forum where seasoned local growers share their knowledge with novice gardeners in exchange for labor.
