Telemetry: Innovation in Pursuit of Perfection
Taylor Minor is the owner of Telemetry Coffee Roasters, previously known as Stony Creek. He has owned the business for eight years and outlines his vision for the future as well as the multiple reasons behind the name change. He also explains his reasoning for closing Neapolitan, an ice-cream shop adjacent to Telemetry, and turning it into a $40,000 laboratory. Minor is a fascinating, seemingly intelligent and quirky individual who compared himself to a nutty professor.
A Main Street Place to Find “Anything & Everything”
Outside of the store Anything & Everything are boxes of trinkets on tables with a grill and golf clubs sitting to the side. The collection looks more like a yard sale setup than a store display.
Upon entering the store, customers stop as they take in the view. The inside of the store looks like a cross between a carnival display and your grandfather’s attic.
Brian Larrabee opened his store, Anything & Everything, in March and sells a variety of items that are unique, antique or ...
Jackets Ahead of Schedule
Coach Pat Estepp said he believes his men’s basketball team is further ahead in preseason than usual. He said there are two factors that contributed to the team’s preparation. The first was a successful team trip to Italy and the other was team bonding over the summer.
“Being over there (in Italy) and playing four games, getting to see everybody, and getting the team bonded a little early was huge for us,” Estepp said. “I think it really helped kickstart our preseason. We are ...
Cedarville Students Serve Haiti
Two Cedarville students with hearts for Haiti went to minister to the disaster-ridden island after a massive hurricane recently struck the region.
Leslie Pence and Samantha Reece had been to Haiti before on multiple missions trips. They both were upset to hear that a hurricane was headed directly for where they had ministered during the previous summer.
“We follow what’s happening in Haiti because we have a heart for it,” said Reece. “We saw the course of where the hurricane was ...
One of the things that makes Cedarville University unique from other schools is its resident a capella group, The Inversions. This school year the group celebrates its fifth anniversary of making music.
The founder of the group was 2014 graduate Jeremy Wit, who came to Cedarville as a music education major.
Wit soon discovered Cedarville lacked an a capella group. So, he brought a group of friends together, and they began what would eventually become known as The Inversions.

Webs of Conflict
Over 250,000 people are trapped in Aleppo, Syria without access to food, water or medical care from the outside world. Aleppo was once an economic center in Syria, but is now the center of the Syrian civil war. An aid convoy was bombed trying to reach civilians on Monday, Sept 19. United States officials accused Russia of the bombing the area to help Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but Russia has denied the accusations.

Just Sayin’ – On Sabbath
The idea of a Sabbath, a day of rest, is often lost in our modern culture of fast food, packed schedules, interstates and roundabouts. Even time spent alone is filled with music and the soft hum of the television. Silence hangs in empty rooms like summer heat, stifling and noticeable.
Whenever I think of Sabbath, I am reminded of William Wordsworth’s poem “The World Is Too Much with Us.” Wordsworth writes “we have given our hearts away” by “getting and spending” and in doing so ...
Student Spotlight – Raven Simmons Acts with Empathy
Junior theatre major Raven Simmons is always passionate about performing, whether dancing, working behind the scenes, or, especially, performing in front of an audience in a play.

She credits forensics during her senior year of high school to leading her into theatre. After competing in humorous acting, she ...
