IS HOCKEY HERE TO STAY? CHECK. New Swamp Rabbits owner Steve Donner confident about the team’s future in Greenville WORDS BY CINDY LANDRUM
teve Donner has roots in minor league hockey. He also was among the first to sell hockey in the South. “I feel pretty comfortable that if I can sell hockey in a 30,000-seat building in Tampa, that we can tackle hockey here in Greenville,” said Donner, a former marketing executive for the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning and the leader of a new ownership group, South Carolina Pro Hockey LLC, that bought the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. The ownership group is the East Coast Hockey League franchise’s third owner since it started as the Greenville Road Warriors in 2010. When the sale was disclosed, the team immediately announced that it had extended its lease with the Bon Secours Wellness Arena through 2021. “We didn’t buy the team as a relocation opportunity. We bought the team as a great opportunity in Greenville and wanted to make a statement. The best way to prove that is to commit to a multiyear lease with both the building and the community,” Donner said. South Carolina Pro Hockey bought the team from Chestnut Street Sports, a company owned by Fred Festa, president and CEO of Maryland-based W.R. Grace & Co. Festa had owned the team since 2012. “Fred could have taken many other options, including closing the team and selling the team to someone who would move it out of town, but he was looking for someone that would keep the team in Greenville,” Donner said. “He told me, ‘This can work here, Steve, just someone’s got to come here and live here and be part of the community, and have the marketing background to take it to the next level.’ I want to thank Fred for his commitment to Greenville and giving us the opportunity to continue this.” Donner has decades of experience in professional sports, a career that started in minor league hockey in

1980. During the 14 years Donner was owner of the American Hockey League’s Rochester Americans, the team made the playoffs every season, advancing to the finals in four of them and winning one championship. “I’m returning to my roots,” Donner said. The Greenville Journal sat down with Donner to talk about what’s next for minor league hockey in Greenville.
Why Greenville? I’ve been in business for over 27 years, so at this point in my life I can be a little picky as to where I want to live and do business. I was looking for the right opportunity in the minor leagues that had a community soul. We looked at four other teams, three in the ECHL and one in the AHL. Some were in the South; some were in the Northern market. One of the first things about Greenville that really struck us was the community spirit here. Obviously, there’s a bit of a checkered past for hockey here, and the business models and numbers at first were a little bit daunting to look at, but again, we looked at the future and where the city’s going. Anywhere you go, you want to see vitality, a cooperative building, and a beautiful building to operate in. We just thought with where the market is going and with the backing of the arena, this market provided an opportunity.
What made Greenville stand out? We started looking at this in late July, early August. We took our time because we wanted to get to know the arena people here, and we really wanted to get an idea from current ownership some of the challenges they went through and some of the progress they made. It was a methodical process. What we saw was a hockey organization that was moving forward and stabilized, but maybe with the ownership situation could not be here every day. Maybe the manage-
ment group did not have the correct mix of assets and talents to make it successful at the next level. So we listened very carefully and tried to put together, and have put together, a dynamic team that can take this franchise, that was already moving in the right direction, to the next level.
What are some of the challenges that you and your organization have to overcome to take it to the next level? First and foremost, I think we have to rebuild the business model a little bit. I think we may have to lower some of our costs of overhead. I’m fortunate to have leadership skills in many areas of the business. We’ve got some good young people. I think with retooling our staff and retooling our business model, and I think with me living in town, I’m really hoping that we can establish long-term relationships in the community. If you look at the success of the Drive, they’ve done a great job. We’re not going to use them as a complete blueprint, but in our own way I’d like to methodically build what they’ve built. If we get in front of community leaders and they see our energy and commitment, and our willingness to be creative, I think we’ll win them over.
How will your experience in Tampa help you sell hockey here? I look at our opportunity here somewhere between a rebuild and an expansion opportunity. When you’re in the National Hockey League and you go through an expansion process, especially in a nontraditional market, you have to think outside the box. You’re going into it knowing that you don’t have a lot of hockey fans here. In Tampa, we had a daunting task of going into a 30,000-seat arena knowing we had probably 5,000 hockey fans at best. So when you do that, you’ve got to focus on entertainment.
Priority 1: The first order of business by the Swamp Rabbits’ new ownership group was to extend the team’s lease with the Bon Secours Wellness Arena through the 2020-21 season, ensuring that hockey stays in the Upstate.

COMMUNITYJOURNALS.COM You do everything to get them into the building for the first time. When you get them here, we’re going to have to provide a lot of fun to bring them back. Little by little, if we can get them here often enough, we’re going to turn people into hockey fans. We’re trying to unshackle everyone and have some fun and really be creative, maybe do some things that are almost outlandish at times. The main thing is that we don’t have to go after things in a traditional sense. We’re going to be outof-the-box thinkers and relationship builders.
What about the team and building excited you? There are so many good parts of the organization. Take the hockey part. We’ve got a great head coach here. He’s a great recruiter. The style of play when we have a full roster is as entertaining as there is in the ECHL. Early on when we were looking, the team was winning big, losing big. No matter what, the team was entertaining.
here, that was a huge plus. They would like to see us doing a better job than we’re doing now, and we accept that responsibility.
What makes you think you can succeed where the owners before struggled? The two previous ownership groups were extremely well-intended. The first group was a good hockey group, but maybe they didn’t have the business ownership living here day-today and maybe didn’t take the time to understand the market. With Fred Festa, he had all the right intentions. He had all the financial strength to do this. He expressed his own frustrations to me that he couldn’t be here to make his own impact with the organization. This is a multimember group. It’s not just me. We have some strong partners. Strategically, we put together a powerhouse team of marketing and sales people with the under-
If you look at the success of the Drive, they’ve done a great job. We’re not going to use them as a complete blueprint, but in our own way I’d like to methodically build what they’ve built. When you look at this facility, for someone like me who’s been in the National Hockey League to have this building to market in, wow. It really has major league amenities. The suites, the video scoreboard ring, the party facilities, those are all NHL-level. One of the things I loved about the building is it’s like an accordion. It can be any number of things. What happens in some instances in the ECHL is you get into a building too small and lacks amenities that fans are looking for. It’s a real hindrance. But if you get into too big a building where you have NHL amenities, it can be expensive to operate in. Take Orlando, for example. The expense of operating a team in that building was choking to the last owner, and the Magic have taken over because they have the master lease to the building. Here with the accordion system, the building’s intimate enough with 7,400 seats. I’m a guy who likes to have capacity. Some teams like a small, compact building. I like the chance to have some big nights. So I’m hoping what we can do differently is have six or seven nights a year and blow it out with some really big crowds. But on those nights we can’t, if we get 4,000 people in here, the building has a great atmosphere. The fact that the arena manager and the board like hockey, and want to see hockey
standing we have to be patient, that it’s not going to happen overnight. We’re going to have to be on site. We’re going to have to roll up our sleeves and get involved in the community. I’m hoping that will make the difference. In addition, the lease can make or break minor league hockey teams. Beth [Paul, general manager of the Bon Secours Wellness Arena], the board, and the county, they have a very fair lease in place. I’d call our lease a partnership lease. There’s incentive for the building for us to succeed. The lease doesn’t choke us. There’s revenue sharing for us so if we do well, the building does well. They’ve been very fair to try not to saddle us with a lease that is very difficult to overcome from a cost standpoint. Corporate partnerships and being a part of the community have been key to the Greenville Drive’s success. How will you build your community relationships? We place a high value on community relationships. We’ll take our relationships one at a time without expectations that they have to love us just because we have a team. We have an ownership group that can certainly fund the operation while we’re building relationships. If we get in front of community leaders and they see our energy and commitment, I think we’ll develop those relationships. I’m hoping to literally win them over one at a time.

WILLIAM HERLONG Age: 59 Political party: Republican Occupation: Attorney Education: Bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Virginia; law degree from Northwestern University Prior political office: Two terms on the Greenville County School Board Previous experience in running for a statewide office: None Family: Wife, Joan; four children, three grandchildren
On the Ballot A Q&A with South Carolina attorney general candidate William Herlong WORDS BY CINDY LANDRUM PHOTOS BY WILL CROOKS
In a way, Greenville attorney William Herlong can credit a loss in a state House of Representatives race more than a decade ago for his ability to run for South Carolina attorney general now. Herlong, who as a two-term member of the Greenville County School Board championed the district’s billion-dollar school construction program and its unique financing mechanism, ran in 2006 in the Republican primary to fill the seat vacated when David Wilkins became U.S. ambassador to Canada. When he lost in a runoff, he took it as a sign that he should focus on his law career. It was shortly after that Safety Components International, an airbag manufacturing company in Greenville, merged with International Textile Group Inc. into a new entity that took the International Textile Group name. Two years later, SCI shareholders filed suit against billionaire financier Wilbur Ross and his company over the merger, saying SCI was successful at the time of the merger, while the original International Textile Group was struggling. The plaintiffs claimed that once the
merger was complete, the new International Textile Group stock plunged, negatively affecting shareholders of the previously successful SCI. Herlong was one of the plaintiff lawyers in the case, which, after seven years of litigation, settled with Ross agreeing to pay $81 million. “As a consequence of the success, I had the luxury to step back and basically say what can I do that a) would be interesting and b) would be good for the community,” Herlong said. “I feel that I’ve really learned a lot as a lawyer over the years and I’ve developed some good legal skills, and I’d like to use those in a good positive way.” Herlong, who will challenge current South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson in the Republican primary, has called for Wilson to resign because of his ties to targets in a Statehouse public corruption probe.
The Greenville Journal sat down with Herlong and talked about why he decided to run for attorney general and what he hoped to accomplish if he wins.
Why did you decide to run for attorney general now? About a year and a half ago, I was sitting in my living room when something triggered me to remember the prosecution and conviction of [then-Speaker of the House] Bobby Harrell. At the time, I was really impressed. I actually picked up the phone and called one of the people deeply involved and left a message telling her I thought it was good work. But I couldn’t remember it in detail so I Googled it and every single reference to Alan Wilson said, “Alan Wilson, who is running for governor.” It seems like the last three or four attorneys general were running for governor. I completely reject
8 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 01.12.2018 GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM that approach. If you’re going to be attorney general, be only attorney general and be the best attorney general you can be. It struck me that I could get really excited about challenging public corruption. I’ve got this great skill set, and I really do know how to relentlessly pursue complex litigation. Ten years ago, or even five years ago, I wouldn’t have been able to afford to take it on. But I am in a position now where I can take it on. Over the course of the summer, it came out that Wilson had communicated with the Quinns [political consultant Richard Quinn and former state Rep. Rick Quinn, who were named in the probe]. That is wrong in so many respects. Talking to people, 100 percent of them said that somebody needed to run, somebody who is not a part of the Columbia system, somebody who doesn’t want to make politics a career, somebody who is not beholden to the powers that be, all these things that I bring to the table. I decided I’m going to do this, and, if I succeed, I’m going to turn this office upside down.
What do you think needs to be done in that office? A couple of things jump to mind almost immediately. I’d have a lot to learn in that office, clearly, but even on the surface, you can see right now the State Grand Jury is the most powerful grand jury in the state, and it has been asleep. Frankly, it borders on dereliction of duty. It has been asleep, and Alan Wilson has flat out not utilized it. That thing needs to be humming. It’s not like the bad guys went away. Obviously, it has jurisdiction over public corruption, which is a growth industry, I’m afraid to say. If you’re not out there pulling the weeds, they’re just growing back. The State Grand Jury is where you pull the weeds. That needs to be turned up to a very high pitch. The State Grand Jury also has jurisdiction over gang activity, which is another serious problem in the state. It has jurisdiction over environmental crimes. It has jurisdiction over securities crimes. The grand jury historically has clicked pretty good, looking at a good number of cases each year. But the last couple of years, they’ve wound it down to almost nothing. That’s outrageous. The legislature has given them this incredibly powerful tool, and the attorney general has not been using it. And you have to think it’s because he’s been so distracted fighting off David Pascoe [the special prosecutor who took over the corruption probe that Wilson unsuccessfully tried to have kicked off the case]. There have also been a lot of suggestions that the opinion writing part of the attorney general’s office has been compromised. If somebody in state government, legislature, or political entities has a question about whether something is lawful, you can submit the question to the attorney general’s office and they will tell you what they think a court will say. There are allegations that the corruption down in Columbia contaminated that process. There’s at least an appearance it’s contaminated. That needs to be looked at. I look at things afresh. I’d take a deep, hard look at the whole office to make sure it’s doing what it should do and services are being delivered to the people of South Carolina in the best and most efficient way.
“Talking to people, 100 percent of them said that somebody needed to run, somebody who is not a part of the Columbia system, somebody who doesn’t want to make politics a career, somebody who is not beholden to the powers that be, all these things that I bring to the table. I decided I’m going to do this, and, if I succeed, I’m going to turn this office upside down.”
How will you use your experience to run the attorney general’s office? I’ve got a depth of knowledge and familiarity with how the court system works that’s just a part of breathing for me. The attorney general is responsible for the whole agency. I don’t think it’s that likely that I, because I have confidence in the courtroom, am going to be the guy taking this and that to court. My job will be to find the very best, most capable people to run the various departments. It’s like the football coach who finds the best offensive coordinator and the best defensive coordinator. My job is to get those men and those women in place and support them and turn them loose so they can do what the attorney general’s office is supposed to do. There may be times when I personally get involved in something.
One of the hallmarks of a trial attorney, at least the kind of trial attorney I am, is they learn how to learn. You don’t know what the case coming in the door is. What the trial attorney has to do is figure out what happened, what are the facts while figuring out what’s the relevant law. If you’re not the lead counsel in a case, you’ve got to learn to work in a team. When you are the lead counsel, you’ve got to learn how to marshal that team, organize everybody, and get everybody working in the right direction. That is an experience that is obviously very relevant to the attorney general’s office. The attorney general himself is not going to be Superman swooping in to solve this case or that case. What the attorney general needs to be is a capable person who is marshaling all the forces of the office.

Gov. McMaster says no to GHS-Palmetto debt refinancing Public officials express concerns about higher bills, tax liability for county residents Greenville Hospital System and Palmetto Health officials said last week they will continue to review options to try to save some of the $80 million to $100 million in interest that a failed $1.5 billion debt restructuring would have generated. As part of their new partnership, the hospitals had planned to refinance $642 million in GHS bond debt and $850 million in existing debt owed by Palmetto Health. The partnership was finalized in November. The new company under which GHS and Palmetto Health will operate will be one of the 50th largest hospital systems in the nation, and the largest in South Carolina, serving 1.2 million patients a year, earning a projected $3.9 billion in annual net revenue, and covering half the state. While county councils in Richland and Sumter counties voted to support refinancing, the Greenville and Oconee county councils did not. Greenville County Council tabled the request. Most of the debt the new company was refinancing came from outside of Greenville County, and there were fears that Greenville County residents could be stuck with higher bills to pay for it. Gov. Henry McMaster denied a request from the hospitals to approve the refinancing, saying he had concerns about spreading the Palmetto Health bond debt across Greenville and Oconee counties when those county councils did not approve. McMaster also cited a lawsuit filed by members of the Greenville County Legislative Delegation regarding GHS’s governance. Some members of the Greenville County Legislative Delegation filed a lawsuit over GHS’s transformation into two separate nonprofit groups, the Strategic Coordinating Organization (SCO) and the Upstate Affiliate Organization (UAO). The UAO will handle day-today operations of GHS, and the SCO will guide the UAO. The state Supreme
Court refused to take up the matter, but the issue is not entirely settled as the lawsuit is still pending in the Greenville County Court of Common Pleas. GHS is “clearly disappointed” by McMaster’s decision, said spokeswoman Sandy Dees in a statement. “As we’ve said before, taxpayers are absolutely not responsible or liable for repayment of these bonds, and there is no additional debt being incurred,” she said. In a letter dated Dec. 29 to former GHS CEO Mike Riordan and Palmetto Health CEO Charles Beaman Jr., McMaster said that while the refinancing would provide savings, a key purpose is to transfer ownership of the bond debt to the newly formed SC Health Company. “It is apparent that the issues and objections surrounding the restructuring of the GHS and [Palmetto Health] into a single entity, SC Health Company, need to be resolved within the home counties before spreading the responsibility for existing debt,” McMaster said in the letter. “I should not approve refinancing and restructuring bonds that would make county facilities in Greenville and Oconee counties liable for [Palmetto Health] debt when there are strong objections from both the Greenville County Council and the Oconee County Council, as well as pending litigation,” he continued. McMaster said GHS requested in October 2016 the reclassification of current bonds to maintain a tax-exempt status after the GHS board voted to change from a government-run health system to a nonprofit health system. Without reclassification, the bonds would have lost their tax-exempt status and cost GHS $167 million in financing fees, the governor’s letter said. “However, this previous request was different from the current scenario, as the Greenville County Council supported reclassification of the bonds and the debt in question was not spread across a new entity when refinanced. Moreover, the purpose of the current request is to place all debt under the SC Health Company umbrella, creating one unified direction for GHS and [Palmetto Health]. Refinancing half of the debt does not meet this goal and is not necessary to maintain a tax-exempt status,” the governor said. —Cindy Landrum

How Did Our Solar System Form?
Clemson has new “Bubble Theory” to explain origins
The solar system is made up of the sun, eight planets, at least 138 moons, comets, asteroids and many space rocks. Rendering by NASA
While scientists have made many impressive discoveries about the universe over the years, they have yet to agree on a single model that explains how the solar system formed. The prevailing theory is that a massive star exploded billions of years ago and compressed a dense cloud of interstellar dust and gas until it collapsed under the force of gravity to form new stars — including our sun. But scientists at the University of Chicago and Clemson University have proposed an alternative theory that suggests the solar system instead formed within the walls of a massive bubble surrounding a Wolf-Rayet star. Wolf-Rayet stars are some of the largest and brightest stars in the universe. Their surfaces burn at incredibly high temperatures and produce large amounts of matter that are ejected into space by intense stellar winds.
When the star begins to shed its mass, the matter combines with the winds to form bubble structures with dense shells. “The shell of such a bubble is a good place to produce stars because dust and gas become trapped inside,” said Nicolas Dauphas, co-author of a study describing the new theory and professor of geophysical sciences at the University of Chicago. The researchers estimate that between 1 and 16 percent of all sun-like stars could have formed as a result of a Wolf-Rayet star. Their theory is based on the fact that two radioactive isotopes in the early solar system occurred in unusual proportions. Scientists sample meteorites for radioactive isotopes (unstable, energized atoms that decay over time) to help determine the conditions under which the solar system formed. Most samples contain large amounts of aluminum-26 and iron-60, radioactive isotopes that originate from a stellar explosion. That’s why many scientists believe a supernova, or stellar explosion, is responsible for the formation of the solar system. In 2012, however, Dauphas and his team of researchers tested several meteorites and found lower levels of iron-60. To explain the discrepancy, they set out to determine how a supernova could eject one isotope and not the other. The researchers ultimately concluded that Wolf-Rayet stars are the perfect trigger for our solar system’s formation,

because they distribute large amounts of aluminum-26 but very little iron-60 when they begin to shed their mass. Bradley Meyer, professor of astronomy and physics at Clemson, and graduate student Michael Bojazi contributed results from their model of galaxy evolution to the new theory, which was published in the Astrophysical Journal on Dec. 22. “Past observations have shown star formation to occur near the edge of Wolf-Rayet wind bubbles and past theories abound concerning the mixing of aluminum-26 from the winds of Wolf-Rayet stars into the dense shell of Wolf-Rayet bubbles, but these theories lack sufficient details,” Bojazi said. “It was a matter of imagination for creating the right scenario and then hashing out the details to determine the theory’s plausibility.” Bojazi’s dissertation work aims to fill out the origin of the sun by extending the study of iron-60 and aluminum-26 to roughly 10 other radioisotopes that were present in the early solar system. As for the fate of the Wolf-Rayet star that led to our solar system’s formation, the researchers believe that its life ended long ago when it either collapsed into a black hole or exploded as a supernova. A collapse to a black hole would have produced low levels of iron-60; if it were a supernova, the iron-60 may not have penetrated the bubble walls or was distributed unequally as it was flung into space by stellar winds. —Andrew Moore

Lake Conestee Nature Park wins national environmental award Lake Conestee Nature Park has been awarded a 2017 Phoenix Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for excellence in brownfield redevelopment. The award was created in 1997 to honor individuals and groups who are working to solve the critical environmental challenge of transforming blighted and contaminated areas into productive new uses, according
to a press release. Phoenix Award winners represent projects from each of the 10 EPA regions, as well as projects that have a special community impact. Lake Conestee Nature Park was chosen as the winner for Region 4, which includes the Southeastern states of Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South

COMMUNITYJOURNALS.COM Carolina, and Tennessee. The winning projects were honored last month during a ceremony at the National Brownfields Training Conference in Pittsburgh. Organizers also named the winner of the national Phoenix Award. Lake Conestee Nature Park was named first runner-up. “The recognition that we’ve achieved with these awards is unprecedented, because a nonprofit has never pulled off something like this,” said Dave Hargett, executive director of the Conestee Foundation. “We took an extremely blighted property that nobody wanted and transformed it into a community asset.” Lake Conestee is one of 450,000 areas in the country classified as a brownfield site by the EPA, meaning redevelopment or reuse is “complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.” Hargett said the lake, which is located along the Reedy River near Mauldin, holds more than 2 million tons of sediment that’s been polluted with heavy metals like arsenic, pesticides, and cancer-causing chemical compounds. The toxins are thought to have been discharged from the textile mills, coal plants, and dyeing operations that were
once located along the Reedy River. The toxins eventually mixed with the river’s sediment and flowed upstream to Lake Conestee. In 1998, Hargett and other conservationists launched the Conestee Foundation to acquire and rehabilitate Lake Conestee into a public green space. Using proceeds from the settlement of the Colonial Pipeline oil spill in 1996, the foundation purchased the lake and its dam in 2000. It also signed a “voluntary cleanup contract” with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to improve the area. Today, Lake Conestee Nature Park boasts 402 acres of open space, 12 miles of trails and boardwalks, and 207 species of birds. About 100,000 people visit the park on a yearly basis to watch birds, run, and enjoy other outdoor activities, according to Hargett. The park has also become a venue for environmental education. More than 3,000 students visit the park every year to learn about nature via “learning stations” that are spread throughout the area. Students from Furman and Clemson universities also use the park to conduct studies in topics such as environmental toxicology. —Andrew Moore

DHEC cites impact on medically underserved groups, other providers in denial Greenville Health System has asked the state Department of Health and Environmental Control board to reconsider the agency’s decision to deny a certificate of need for a new psychiatric hospital. GHS announced plans in November 2016 for a new 120-bed psychiatric hospital on the site of the old Blood Connection building. The facility was to replace Marshal I. Pickens Hospital and be built in partnership with Acadia Healthcare, a national health care giant that has 579 facilities in 39 states, the United Kingdom, and Puerto Rico. Acadia would manage the day-to-day operations of the hospital, while GHS would provide clinical oversight. But the certificate of need application drew opposition from those concerned the move could further strain a state system that already struggles to provide timely access to inpatient psychiatric care to some adults. Because the new facility would be a freestanding hospital, it would be unable to bill Medicaid for any care provided to eligible adult patients between the ages of 22 and 64. Currently, Marshall Pickens may bill Medicaid for treatment of eligible adults because it is part of the Greenville Health System. GHS had said the new hospital would provide inpatient and outpatient services to adult Medicaid patients even though it won’t receive reimbursement for those services. State mental health hospitals have had significant decreases in the number of adult inpatient psychiatric beds over the past 18 years, although the number of beds has been stable for several years, said Mark W. Binkley, deputy director of the division of administrative services at the state Department of Mental Health, in a letter to Louis Eubank, director of DHEC’s certificate of need program. At the same time, the state’s population has continued to increase. “As a result, the problem of timely access to adult inpatient psychiatric care has become a significant problem in some areas of the state,” Binkley wrote. While the Department of Mental Health supports efforts to increase the number of available adult psychiatric hospital beds, Binkley said in his letter that transferring existing
licensed beds from Marshall Pickens to the new hospital would increase demand for state beds when the system already is unable to timely admit referred patients. State Reps. Garry Smith, Mike Burns, and Dwight Loftis and state Sen. Tom Corbin also wrote a letter voicing the same concerns. In addition, Springbrook Behavioral Health and the Carolina Center for Behavioral Health, psychiatric hospitals in Greenville County, said the new hospital would unnecessarily duplicate their services because they both rely on Marshall Pickens’ ability to accept adult Medicaid patients that they cannot. DHEC denied the application because it determined that medically underserved groups could lose access to psychiatric care and that other providers in the area could be adversely impacted by the new hospital. GHS said it believed DHEC’s decision was “made in error.” “We hope that DHEC will allow us to proceed with this innovative plan, which will allow GHS, as part of a joint-venture partnership with Acadia Healthcare, to actually expand much-needed behavioral health services in our area,” said GHS spokeswoman Sandy Dees. “Under the projections for the new partnered hospital, services provided to adult Medicaid patients were expected to increase over what GHS could currently provide by itself.” “The state of mental health in the Upstate is at a crossroads. It will take innovative partnerships like the one we have developed with Acadia to meaningfully address the serious mental health needs of our community. We hope and believe that the DHEC board will agree that our plan is a good, solid one and grants us the approval to start building this new hospital,” she said. If the DHEC board chooses to hear the appeal, Grove Point and DHEC staff will present their case in an upcoming board meeting, said Tim Kelly, DHEC director of media relations. If it chooses not to hear the appeal, Grove Point could move for a contested case hearing in the Administrative Law Court, he said. —Cindy Landrum

ADVENTURE TIME With their expansion, Will and Kim Rutherford of Escape Artist Greenville hope to draw a new customer base: local businesses WORDS BY SARA PEARCE
ill and Kim Rutherford did not originally set out to open Escape Artist Greenville. Their shared love of the creative and theatrical was more of a hobby that quietly began taking over most of their free time, and when they realized that their respective backgrounds had set them up for success in creating a top-notch escape room experience, they gave it a shot. Constructing a haunted house within their home sparked an initial interest in escape rooms, Will says. “We did this crazy haunted house for like 10 years through our house and garage, and we spent three months setting this stuff up; we even had 12 actors. People suggested we should charge for it. But then we’d have to tear it down on Nov. 1, which was a real bummer.” As an offshoot of their original haunted house idea, the pair began exploring the possibility of opening an escape room. Will’s background in engineering paired with Kim’s past experience in design work was the perfect storm to create Escape Artist Greenville. Will defines an escape room as “an interactive adventure you get to play with your friends and family. The success is determined on how well you do. You’re going to unlock secret codes, compartments, and doors, and you’re going to have to work together to meet a certain objective.” He adds that the two prefer to call their experience “escape adventures” because of the multi-room aspect of the challenges. The success of Escape Artist Greenville led the Rutherfords to seek expansion, and they have now relocated to a
Will Crooks / Greenville Journal
building at 209 E. Stone Ave., which is five times the size of their previous space. The building has the capacity for five or six escape adventures, with three — Dr. Fratelli’s Cabin, The Fallout, and The Inventor’s Enigma — currently up and running. “Just like anything creative, you get on a roll and then you get stuck on something that’s just not working,” Will says of the process involved in creating the rooms. “It takes months and starts with a simple, fun idea, like The Fallout, and having the two teams duel, and then we bounce ideas off each other to create certain emotions, like pure competition or adventure and mystery.” Every room has a variety of different puzzles, and they are built into the most ordinary aspects of the room. “There is nothing readily apparent until you start moving things around and exploring the room,” Will says. Each puzzle type encourages different kinds of interaction between players. Some are communication puzzles, encouraging verbal collaboration; some are physical puzzles; and others are a mix of both. “The most challenging aspect is that we have hundreds, even thousands of people coming through here, and people come up with the craziest ways to solve a puzzle. You can’t prepare for that,” Will says. “This is why the testing phase is really important to see how different people solve the problems.” For Will and Kim, the most exciting aspect of the expansion is the potential to add themed rooms that are unlike their current offerings. “Our most commonly
asked question is, ‘Are they scary?’” Will says. “And the answer is no, not at all. But eventually we hope to add a horror room, since we have a background in that, and also a room that is pure comedy, like escaping your aunt’s boring dinner party.” In addition to the entertainment they provide for groups of friends and families, Will and Kim have discovered that Escape Artist Greenville draws a surprising amount of attention from businesses. “Escape rooms are a huge draw for corporate meetings. It is excellent for all kinds of corporate groups who are looking for something that is fun and away from work, that can still be branded as team building,” Will says. “Where else can you get your team together working on something for an hour that is fun, that you can either accomplish or not and then learn lessons from that? It’s hard to find anywhere else.” Escape adventures, while being disguised as a fun activity, tap into communication and teamwork skills. “You will learn a lot about the people you work with,” Will says. Branding Escape Artist Greenville as a unique instrument for corporate team building has been a key part of the Rutherfords’ success, and later this year, they plan to open an event and meeting room to continue to draw local businesses. “It will be for birthday parties or anything like that, but also many corporate groups want to meet after they do a room and discuss some of the things they learned, and this will be a great opportunity for them to do this,” Will says.

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS
Rainbow PUSH Greenville aims to put the words and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. into action SARA PEARCE | STAFF
Originally founded in 1996 by Rev. Jesse Jackson as a merger between the National Rainbow Coalition and Operation PUSH, the Greenville chapter of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition was organized in the Upstate in 2003. The group’s first major undertaking was to ensure that Martin Luther King Jr. Day was observed as a holiday in Greenville County, an effort that was realized in 2006. Today, Rainbow PUSH Greenville holds an annual King Legacy Week, which includes a series of activities and events surrounding King’s life, work, and ideology. The 2018 King Legacy Week includes four main events that seek to bring positive changes to the Greenville community and encourage dialogue and involvement. The first event is the historically black college and university (HBCU) STEM Fair on Saturday, Jan. 13, which will give students an opportunity to connect with admissions representatives from 15 HBCUs and hear about higher education opportunities, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. There will also be presentations about internship and job opportunities that do not require four-year college degrees. Children in 4K through eighth grade are invited to attend the PUSHTECH2020 Hack-A-Thon on Monday, Jan. 15, which encourages young students to be engaged in technology and education through technology. Representatives from the Sylvan Learning Center will guide students in various computer games and coding activities. PUSHTECH2020 “aims to help bridge the digital divide between the majority and minority communities to help engage children in science and technology in a fun way,” says Davida Mathis, chairwoman of Rainbow PUSH Greenville. The Gospel of Social Justice Town Hall meeting will take place during the weekly Wednesday service at Long Branch
Baptist Church on Jan. 17. This event aims to discuss the role of the church in social justice. Mathis explains, “We forget that Dr. King was first a preacher, and the other six days a week, he was working toward social justice. The Gospel of Social Justice aims to address what’s in the news right now and how the church can help some situations.” Topics to be covered include economic empowerment, police brutality, criminal justice reform, voter registration, and education, according to a press release. “The church needs to be thinking about social justice, and this event promotes that,” Mathis says, adding that there is disconnect between the #blacklivesmatter generation and her own because of a lack of communication, when in reality the issues are the same. The Gospel of Social Justice, she says, hopes to reopen that dialogue. The week will conclude with the 2018 King Legacy Gala on Jan. 20, with all proceeds going toward keeping the other Legacy Week events free of charge and open to the public. Mignon Clyburn, a commissioner at the Federal Communications Commission and daughter of Rep. Jim Clyburn, will be the gala’s keynote speaker. Eustace Bennett, the first African-American police officer in the Greenville Police Department, and Asha Marie, a student who led the movement to rename Wade Hampton High School, will be recognized as Profiles in Courage honorees. Through the 2018 King Legacy Week, organizers hope to not only commemorate and continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but also promote community involvement and discourse about his teachings. “The overall goal for celebrating Dr. King is that we believe he was a visionary,” Mathis says. “We know that he had a deep love of God and the community, and that he was a highly educated and prepared person, but he used that great love, education, and mind that he had in service to the community through activism. So we say that love, education, and activism are our goals that we want to work toward through his example.”

DADDY’S BEEMER VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR
Band Name: Daddy’s Beemer Formed: October 2016 From: Clemson Members: Brady Sklar (vocals, guitar), Luke Waldrop (guitar), Wesley Heaton (bass), Dan Fetterolf (drums, piano, violin) What they sound like: Imagine the heavy jangle-rock riffs of The Smiths, topped with remarkably soulful falsetto vocals and grounded by a flexible, jazz-influenced rhythm section. Indie-rock with a lighter, more skillful touch. Who They Like: Hugger Mugger, Horrible Girl and The Hot Mess, SUSTO, Hot Showers Daddy’s Beemer may be just as important for the scene they created as the music they make. The quartet met working at Clemson University’s radio station, WSBF, and began playing together, but bassist Wesley Heaton had a bigger idea than just forming a band. “I noticed that there was a vacuum in Clemson,” he says, “a need for some sort of music scene. So we got a house and started doing shows there, because there was youth in the area that wanted to see live music.” Heaton christened the house-slashDIY-venue “Pablo,” and a small-but-dedicated group of fans started showing up to
see Daddy’s Beemer play. And then over time, audience members began forming their own connections and creating their own bands. “We started to see bands being formed to play at our spot,” Heaton says. “A lot of people had made music on their own and put it on the Bandcamp site, but they didn’t have musicians to play live with. Pablo became a place to go where you could find people who played guitar or bass and wanted to be in a band.” Over the last year or so, a collective of musicians called “The Pablo Generation” has grown out of that scene, forming a series of bands like Tom Angst, Wallpaper, Prozac Dreams, and Apricot Blush. Often, the musicians will play in multiple groups at the same time. Since Daddy’s Beemer is the band that essentially started a music scene, you might expect them to take their music very seriously, but their soul-meets-indierock hybrid is the result of the band very consciously NOT taking things too seriously. “We just try to have fun when we write our songs,” guitarist Luke Waldrop says. “That’s something I really appreciate about this band.” “Thinking about the atmosphere of a song while we’re writing it is counterproductive for us,” adds drummer Dan Fetterolf. “But it does seem like each song we’ve written has its own vibe.”
The band’s cohesive sound seems to come together from several different starting points. Firstly, all of them can play multiple instruments, and Heaton says that gives each of them a unique understanding of what the others are going for. “A lot of the time we’ll write the song, record it, and then add things that make sense for the atmosphere later,” he says. “It helps with arrangement when you understand what the other person is doing; you can fit the pieces together more easily.” Then there’s singer Brady Sklar’s love of classic soul music. “I’m a really big fan of the Motown era,” Sklar says. “Maybe not the texture, but the melodies. I just love those all-over-theplace melodies that have so much soul.” And finally, there’s a creative tension between Fetterolf’s urge for big arrangements and Sklar’s love of minimalism. “I try to push a lot of stuff, and Brady is always pulling back,” Fetterolf says. “Dan and I have gone in to the studio together, and I’ll be doing something he wanted me to do and he’s still throwing ideas at me,” Sklar adds with a laugh. “But there’s always one idea he has that totally changes the direction of the song. We can go with minimal and maximal, and it meets somewhere in the middle.”

MUSICAL MINDS For synth-rock quintet Polymath, collaboration is key VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR
The story of Greenville’s Polymath quintet is almost as interesting as the music they make. It’s a story of precise control and collective collaboration. It’s a combination of a specific vision and random friendships. It’s a band that was founded by two Anderson University students, singer/keyboardist Logan Carroll and guitarist Tanner Corley, who consciously planned exactly what they wanted the band to sound like, then eventually (and not without a struggle) let that sound be influenced by others. We’ll start with the music. Polymath’s debut EP, “Plymth,” is five tracks of lush, danceable, evocative synth-rock, bursting with inventive arrangements and layers of shimmering electronics. It’s also the polar opposite of stripped-down folk music, which was the other direction the CarrollCorley duo considered when they formed. “Tanner and I had a conversation right before we started crafting our sound,” Carroll says. “Did we want to do something indie-folk or more of a synth-rock kind of thing. And ultimately, we decided on our sound because of the avenues that that provides. There’s no dead end with the sound we picked up, whereas guitarbased music has more of a dead end that you reach; you hit a ceiling.” Carroll sees the sleek, synthesized music that Polymath makes now merely as a bigger version of the folk music he was considering making. “I think my tendency was to select some sort of sound that I could experience some sort of passion through,” he says. “What we do now is like singing folk songs with an acoustic guitar but bigger and louder, and more energetic. That’s why synth rock also appealed to me.” The lyrical perspective would probably have stayed the same even if Carroll had picked up an acoustic guitar instead of a synthesizer. His themes might best be summed up in one line from “Chinese New Year,” the second track on the EP: “Who will I be if I forget myself?” “When I was a teenager, I was ensconced in writing songs about love or heartbreak, those two extremes,” Carroll says. “I was writing about my girlfriend and how much I loved her, but then we
broke up, and I couldn’t sing those songs anymore. I was suddenly trying to write songs about not knowing what the universe amounts to. I wanted to embrace some sort of music that I never tired of and that was timeless and that anyone could draw something from.” With the lyrical and musical vision in place before the duo even had a band put together, there were bound to be some growing pains when they added drummer Richie Blanton, bassist Joe Montore, and keyboard player Nathan Carlton. “I couldn’t have picked better friends who are also musicians,” Carroll says, “but for the longest time, I viewed other players as a hindrance; a system to limit my power. For a long time, it was hard for me to give anything up. If anyone told me an arrangement of my song wasn’t perfect, I wanted to argue with them. The first time someone told me to cut some lyrics, it was like they were killing my baby. It was very difficult. But once I let go and embraced the idea of having five musical minds working on a song rather than just my own, it became immensely beneficial. However high I can take a song on my own, it can go five times as high with the influence of other people.” In fact, Carroll has “let go” to the extent that Polymath, who will play at the Radio Room in Greenville on Jan. 18, has become a larger collective, with friends handling the band’s art, videos, and photography, and all sharing equal status within the group. “All of our album artwork has been done by someone we really trust. We send her the tracks for the album and say, ‘Let this inspire you to create art and we’ll trust what-
ever you do.’ I’ve been lucky to be around so many artists who are incredibly talented and passionate, who are willing and hungry to do something they believe in. We really haven’t struggled in any facet of our media because there’s always someone, a videographer or photographer, who’s right there with us and loves our music.”

New international coffee course helps discern coffee preferences for the aficionado and novice alike WORDS BY ARIEL TURNER PHOTOS BY WILL CROOKS “Do you know why you like coffee?” A new international coffee course offered by Greenville History Tours opens with this question, and while it may seem pretty basic, the answer is much more complex than just the function or the flavor. Greenville History Tours owner John Nolan, who previously attended and enjoyed a coffee tasting in Italy, has added this new course to his lineup of history and culinary tours to highlight one part of the expanding beverage-focused experiences in Greenville. The 90-minute class is held Fridays at 6:30 p.m. at Le Petit Croissant. The course, led by Vincenzo Antignani, an Italian native and biology professor who combines his cultural heritage with the chemical knowledge of coffee, is designed to answer just about any question you may have, whether you take your espresso black or you add a little coffee to your sugar and cream. Antignani grew up in Naples, Italy, a culture in which coffee has a long history and is a daily ritual for nearly everyone, but it’s different from what is readily available in the U.S. When Antignani moved to the U.S. in 2009, he started to look for coffee that he would enjoy. He says he tried 50 to 60 kinds in coffee shops and at home, and he couldn’t find one. He soon came to the understanding that the reason was that he didn’t truly know the coffee he was trying to brew.

January 19 Thus began his journey to source, roast, and brew the perfect cup. In the international coffee course, guests will benefit from Antignani’s years of trial and error and research by learning about the primary beans that are used to make coffee, which international countries grow the different varieties, and what the distinct characteristics are from each of these regions of the world. The class will engage all five senses as guests learn a type of bean’s brewed flavors, smell the aromas of the ground beans, and hear about how to discern the nutty, acidic, fruity, and other types of flavors of the beans.
A key point of the class is to understand the three main factors that influence the taste of each cup of coffee: the source, roasting method, and brewing method. Antignani says the same bean coming from the same country, roasted exactly the same way, but brewed by two differing methods, will taste completely differently. During numerous rounds of tastings, Antignani demonstrates several primary brewing methods, including the Italian moka pot and the French press, and how those methods influence the taste of the coffee. He’ll also roast green coffee beans to show the various stages and the final desired color and flavor.

Mike Willey’s “Tired Souls: King and the Montgomery County Bus Boycott” “Tired Souls” opens in Montgomery, Ala., on Dec. 1, 1955 – the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white man. Her choices inspired the black citizens of Montgomery to abandon traveling on the buses until they were no longer forced to sit in the back. This performance also tells the story of other key figures in the civil rights movement, including Jo Ann Robinson and Claudette Colvin, who led the way for Parks’ protest and permanently changed the course of U.S. history. “Tired Souls” is appropriate for classrooms studying social studies, U.S. history, the civil rights movement, the performing arts, and drama and theater.

West End String Band
Smiley’s Acoustic Café | 111 Augusta St. | 6:30 p.m. | Free
The veteran Greenville bluegrass quintet West End String Band suffered a terrible loss last year when banjo player and tenor vocalist Jim Rollins died in a car crash. Rollins was a powerful vocalist, an expert player, and a beloved music scene fixture, and it would’ve been understandable if the group decided not to continue after his death. But singer/guitarist Charlie McDaniel says that’s not what Rollins would’ve wanted. “Jimmy was a trooper,” McDaniel says. “He would’ve wanted us to keep playing shows, because he never missed a show. He’d see other bands lose members and go fill in for guys because he knew you don’t call off a show.” The band has played with fill-in banjo players and done shows as a four-piece, and McDaniel says they’ve had to make some adjustments to their sound. “We decided we weren’t going to get another regular banjo player right away,” McDaniel says. “We have material that we can play without a banjo, and some of those tunes that Jimmy sang we just don’t mess with anymore.” —Vincent Harris

Tides In Transit w/ Dead Swells and The Apartment Club
Radio Room | 110 Poinsett Highway 9 p.m. | $7 Last year, the Greenville sextet Tides In Transit released five singles that displayed such a wide range of styles that you’d be forgiven for not realizing they were all done by the same band. They played everything from tricky mid-’80s-Rush-style time signatures (“Me & Monogamy”) to straightforward anthems (“The Words”) to synth-spiked progressive rock (“Lady In White”) to electronic funk-rock (“Slightly Dirty”), with only Matt Dubuc’s pas-
sionate vocals uniting them. https://tidesintransit.bandcamp.com/ And Dubuc says those singles were specifically designed to showcase the band’s versatility. “We all kind of come from different backgrounds musically speaking, and they’re all completely different-sounding songs,” he says. “One of my favorite things about this band is that the influences are so diverse.” With that display of their range out of the way, Dubuc says the next step for the band is a concept album that ties all the disparate threads together. “The concept itself is still under wraps,” he says, “but I want the sound to be a lot more cohesive on our next release.” —Vincent Harris

If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your dog Winter is here and, oh my dog, it’s a cold one! That means it’s especially important to make sure your dog has a warm place to stay safe and comfortable. It’s the humane thing to do, and it’s the law. Bring pets inside at night, even if they’re outdoor pets. When you do let your pet outside, give them plenty of food and unfrozen water. If your pet is whining, shivering or showing weakness, those could be signs of hypothermia. If you see someone else’s dog out in extreme cold for an inappropriate amount of time, call your local Animal Control. You can also take immediate action to help the animal by giving it a blanket, water and some food. Make sure you tell your friends and family that your dog is just as susceptible to the cold as you are. The rule of thumb is, if it’s too cold for you it’s too cold for your pet!

Miranda Lambert w/ Jon Pardi and Brent Cobb Bon Secours Wellness Arena | 650 N. Academy St. 7 p.m. | $47.75-$83.75
Miranda Lambert already has the “commercial success” part covered in country music. Since her career caught fire with 2005’s “Kerosene” (which featured huge hit singles with the title track, “Bring Me Down,” and “New Strings”), Lambert has been country’s platinum queen, scoring four million-selling albums in a row during an era where full-length records don’t move as much as they used to. But with 2016’s double-album “The Weight of These Wings,” Lambert went for something morehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-dZzpTce30 and succeeded in spades. The 24-track epic expanded Lambert’s rough-and-tumble twang into atmospheric acoustic folk (“Tin Man”), funky minimalism (“We Should Be Friends”), old-school sweeping balladry (“To Learn Her”), and gritty, distorted rock (“Pink Sunglasses”). And in addition to going platinum (again), “The Weight of These Wings” garnered some serious critical acclaim, landing on the year-end Best Of lists in Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Rolling Stone, SPIN, and Variety, while picking up an Academy of Country Music Award for Album Of The Year, to boot. —Vincent Harris CONCERT
