  • Bill Felker’s new book offers riches of home

    Local almanac writer Bill Felker recently published a new book, “Home Is the Prime Meridian,” a collection of nature essays drawn from his News columns and elsewhere. Pictured here in his greenhouse with a bound version of his daybook, Felker recalled how his wife’s gift of a barometer in 1972 got him started on observing weather patterns and other natural phenomena.

    Camel crickets in the tub. Robinsong and its absence. A koi pond in winter. Hepatica, violet cress, bloodroot, Virginia bluebells. The “iconography” of light on a wall. Memories of adolescent devotion in a Catholic seminary. All of these subjects illuminate local almanac writer Bill Felker’s new book.

  • Commentary — How Ted Neeley became Jesus

    Ted Neeley, seated, will return to Yellow Springs to speak at three special showings of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the Little Art Theatre, at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 and 11, and a sing-along event at 2 p.m. Nov. 12. He’s shown here with co-star Barry Dennen, who died recently. (Submitted photo)

    In the rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar,” the first time that Jesus meets the Roman procurator who will sentence him to death is during a song called “Pilate and Christ.” For Ted Neeley, this scene was shared for decades by his dear friend, Barry Dennen. Just a few days before Neeley and I recently spoke, Barry had died suddenly.

  • BLOG—Jesus on Jesus

    Playing a Christ who resonates with millions outside of Christianity takes a great deal of faith. For Ted Neeley, that began when he was a bow-legged drummer from Texas who screamed high notes at church gatherings. Ever since, people have been grabbing at the hem of his garment.
