  • Yellow Springs kids play Fair to win

    Preparation for the annual Greene County Fair brings out the worker in Yellow Springs youth, who spend months to years on their living and non-living-projects. Above, Rachel Hammond and her dad Scott practiced leading Winnie, her year-old heifer who eats 25 pounds of grain a day and weighs in at 900 pounds.

    At his family’s farm last week across from Dollar General, 16-year-old Austin Pence was using the cool of the dusk to wash and blow dry two of his favorite animals. Mabel, a year-old heifer, and Bart, a 17-month-old steer, hung by the white barn calm and collected as their black coats began to take on a fluffiness.
