  • Seeking courage at MLK event

    The local celebration of the birthday of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. takes place on Monday, Jan. 15, at 11 a.m. at Bryan Community Center gym, a new location. Marchers will congregate at 10 a.m. in the Subway parking lot that day for the march downtown that precedes the event. Shown above is the 2017 MLK march, which was attended by hundreds although the weather was frigid. (News archive photo by Matt Minde)

    This year marks the 50th anniversary of the civil rights leader’s death. And to celebrate his legacy, the 2018 Yellow Springs Martin Luther King Jr. Day program has adopted a timely theme: “Courage to Take a Stand.”

  • Changes come to two village eateries

    Brian Rainey, owner and chef of the Sunrise Cafe, recently announced that he’s opening a second restaurant, the Calypso Grill and Smokehouse, that will feature Caribbean food. The restaurant, which is scheduled for a March opening, will be located in the former location of Dona Margarota’s, a Mexican restaurant that closed in November. (Photo by Jeff Simons)

    Last November, when Tony Avalos closed his Mexican restaurant for remodeling, he wasn’t sure about its future. Or the future of the 1535 Xenia Avenue building. But after meeting with Brian Rainey, who’s owned the Sunrise Café since July 2004, the two restaurateurs struck a deal.
