Farmers Come Together To Grow Ancient Grains For Local Bread

During the early 1800s, wheat production made Ohio one of the leading grain-growing states in the U.S. As prairie land was settled and major wheat growing moved westward, the grain became less important to the state’s agricultural economy. Corn and soybeans became the staple of farming, and now wheat fields are few and far between in the Ohio countryside.

Dayton Sister City Committee

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Dayton, Ohio’s sister city relationship with Oiso, Japan, and to mark the occasion, officials will welcome a delegation from Oiso to the city next summer.

Dayton actually has five sister cities around the world. “The oldest of which is Augsburg, Germany,” says Kevin Lydy, chair of the Dayton-Oiso Sister City Committee. “That [relationship] was established in 1964. Oiso, Japan is our second oldest, in 1968, and then we have three others: Holon, Israel, Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and then Monrovia and Liberia.”

Ohio's candidates for governor repeatedly spotlighted the Miami Valley during the first of three gubernatorial debates, held Wednesday night at the University of Dayton river campus.

Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray spent much of the contentious hour-long debate comparing their approaches to the opioid crisis and their respective attempts to address it during their time in government.

The candidates also sharply criticized each other’s views on student debt, abortion rights, and gun control.

This week on Senior Voices, Sarah Campbell shares fond memories of growing up in East Dayton. She had an absolute love of reading, and fresh homemade bread. She shared her story with Dayton Metro Library volunteer interviewer, Diane Root.

Transcript:

Sarah Campbell: Well, when I was born my parents lived on a street called Irwin, which is one of the older brick streets in the city of Dayton. In 1942, with my grandmother -- or early ‘43 -- they moved on to Harbine, which is a block away.

In 2002 I had a very special guest come out to our studios in Yellow Springs to see me. Kathi Kamen Goldmark had been to Yellow Springs many times before. She was a graduate of Antioch College. On this particular occasion she came here for only one reason, to do this interview live in our WYSO studios.
