Today we begin a series of stories by WYSO Community Voices producers from the class of 2014. Our first story takes place in Yellow Springs, where Antioch College is creating an on-campus farm and building a solar array . The liberal arts college has a goal to create sustainable ways of living, but some villagers are unhappy with plans for the development of 35 acres on the south end of the campus. Antioch College student and Community Voices producer Wyatt Souers has the story.

Andrew Goodman was a young man from New York who went to Mississippi during the summer of 1964 to participate in the civil rights struggles that were taking place then in the South. Shortly after he arrived he vanished. Andrew and two other civil rights workers had been taken by members of the Ku Klux Klan and brutally murdered. Their bodies were found some time later.

There are some things you have to look away from if you are going to make it through the day and stay sane. The human population explosion and the extinction crisis among other species is such a topic for me, although I have not stopped reading about it. I recently finished Stephen Meyer’s The End of the Wild and Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction. But I am not ready to write about it.

Public broadcasting stations like WYSO have large libraries of stories that aired years ago, but often that audio can't be accessed because the archives are on tape, a format most stations aren't using regularly. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in cooperation with WGBH Boston and the Library of Congress, decided that it was time to bridge that technological gap.

Zeb Reichert spoke with Karen Cariani of WGBH and Neenah Ellis of WYSO to learn more about this national undertaking known as the American Archive project
