    At the place where east Hyde Road ends and unspoiled farmland begins, Pat Funderburg has his own practice of asking, not telling, and working with instead of against, the horses on his family’s farm.

  • Glen adjusts course of events

    The annual Glen Helen pancake breakfast is one of several that Glen leaders are evaluating this year in order to streamline their activities

  • Of sharing food and company

    Ruth Bent and Al Denman want to keep the local potluck tradition going by throwing community feasts on March 14, April 11 and May 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church’s Westminster Hall, 314 Xenia Avenue. All villagers are invited and should bring a dish to share and their own service. Here Antioch College students dine with villagers Tony Bent and Bev Price at weekly potlucks held last fall.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Village may rank ‘most fun’

    The history of Yellow Springs is that of a town that is constantly being rediscovered, so it may come as no surprise that recently Yellow Springs was yet again discovered as one of the top 30 best small towns in America.

    Erik and Deirdre Owen had looked for ways to support the local arts community as well as share their home, an Italian villa on an historic estate. By turning their spacious home into an “art bed and breakfast,” they believe they now have accomplished both.
