FARM FRESH this Winter
n story and photos by JESSICA MULLEN
Open-air farmers markets are hard to come by in January in the Upstate. While subscription services have been trending in recent years, one form of farm-fresh delivery is helping Greenvillians eat healthy all year round: the CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture program. Community Supported Agriculture has been practiced in the United States since the 1980s, according to the South Carolina Department of Agriculture’s website, which notes the concept originated in Switzerland and Japan in the 1960s. In a CSA program, shareholders pay one large fee to a farmer before the growing season begins. The farmer uses the influx of cash to invest in updating facilities or buying seeds. In return for their support, CSA members get regular portions of the harvest.
At Bioway Farms in Ware Shoals, farmer Chris Sermons has run his CSA program for 10 years. Every Thursday, approximately 30 members of the Bioway CSA come out to the farm to pick up their shares. “CSAs are the most direct way to support local farms and the local food system. Our food system is only healthy to the degree that we participate in it,” says Sermons, whose farm is certified organic. Sermons says some of his CSA members are regulars, and some just recently found Bioway’s program by Googling it. At The Anchorage in the Village of West Greenville, a farm-to-restaurant model helps attract CSA members for The Anchorage’s farm partner, Horseshoe Farm. “The hardest thing when you’re out in the field is actually breaking away and marketing and delivering and figuring out how to procure new CSA members,” says Greg McPhee, owner of The Anchorage and partner at Horseshoe Farm. “Balancing that with the market demand while figuring out how to pay yourself is a struggle, but I think we can more easily get exposure in the long term because of our anchor in the West End.”

While the Anchorage-Horseshoe CSA started in spring 2019, the Anchorage is shooting for 65 shares in the 2020 spring season. “The commitment and
WHAT'S THAT? CSA: money allow us to invest in larger projects and make products better and make the lives of the farmers a little bit easier,” McPhee says. For now, Horseshoe Farm’s CSA pickups are on Thursdays at The Anchorage, which helps the farmers keep their margins from growing too thin. “The logistics could very easily make it not worth your time if you have to deliver,” says Chris Miller, farm manager at Horseshoe Farm. “We try to couple everyone’s favorites — carrots, beets, turnips, salad greens — with more unique culinary products. Greg writes up veggie notes with cooking tips, or we’ll try to give a message from the farm,” Miller says. “We try to connect people with the food, especially if it’s their first time with a CSA and they’re not familiar with the relationship.” McPhee says it’s usually the unconventional vegetables that thrill members the most. The Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery also acts as a local drop-off point for CSA shares from local farms, such as Bioway or Growing Green Family Farm of Anderson. For those veggie lovers who are not yet ready to take the full CSA leap, produce manager Samantha Clawson spends her

Students recall Greenville’s pivotal moment 50 years ago n story by ANNA LEE photo courtesy of THE UPCOUNTRY HISTORY MUSEUM, JAMES G. WILSON COLLECTION.
INTEGRATION came to Greenville County in the middle of the school year. In January 1970 — 16 years after Brown v. Board of Education — Judge Clement F. Haynsworth Jr. ordered the school district to desegregate, ending the era of “separate but equal.” When schools reopened on Feb. 17, “some 58,000 students and 2,000 teachers and 105 schools had been peacefully integrated,” the New York Times reported. It was a pivotal moment in Greenville’s civil rights history. Later, national news outlets noted that Greenville had integrated with “grace and style” and held the district up as a model for the South.
There were siblings in the same household that were sent to other schools. Families were split. -Nell Hinton, former J.E. Beck High School student
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 7
But the move was far from seamless. In order to thoroughly mix each school in the system, some 7,500 blacks and 5,000 whites were transferred to new schools. Black students bore the brunt of integration, Nell Sullivan Hinton, a senior at J.E. Beck High School, recalled. “There were siblings in the same household that were sent to other schools,” Hinton said. “Families were split.” Clyde Mayes, the All-American basketball player who had led Beck to the state championship the previous year, was transferred to Wade Hampton. His older sister went to J.L. Mann.
FROM THE COVER
Greenville County Desegregation Mayes recalled how much the split had upset their mother. “She wanted me to be going to school with my sister [to] watch over her,” Mayes said. He said their mother tried to keep the siblings together and even appealed to a judge, but the answer was no. “We were pulled up and uprooted,” Hinton said. “We were treated as pawns on a chess board.” Hinton was nearly finished with her senior year when she and her classmates were transferred to J.L. Mann, and Beck — along with most other black schools in the district — was closed.
FROM FREEDOM OF CHOICE TO DESEGREGATION
Yet black students had already begun to enroll in all-white schools several years before the court order. In the summer of 1963, A.J. Whittenberg, president of the Greenville NAACP, led a group of black families in filing a federal lawsuit that forced the school district to admit blacks. According to news reports, Whittenberg had visited an all-white school for a Democratic precinct meeting in 1962 when he noticed stacks of new textbooks set aside for the students. They were not at all like the battered ones his 11-year-old daughter, Elaine, used. Whittenberg believed his daughter should go to the white Anderson Street school, which was closer than the one she had been assigned to. Five other black parents thought the same for their children, and when the school board denied their request, the parents sued.
The district integrated
58,000 STUDENTS & 2,384 TEACHERS
throughout its 103 schools
The next year, U.S. District Judge J. Robert Martin ordered the district to enact a freedom-of-choice plan. By that fall, 55 black students were enrolled in 16 white schools. Elaine Whittenberg was among them. She later recounted her first day and the crowds that had gathered in a 2019 interview with the school district. “I see all these people all across the street everywhere, the media and everything’s going on, and [my father] tells me to get out of the car and go in,” she said. “I think I’ll never forget that.” By 1969, however, the state Supreme Court had declared freedom-of-choice plans unacceptable and ordered school districts to desegregate. No more delays.

SEPTEMBER 1964 School board members in Greenville called on the community to help. A biracial committee was formed to coordinate the move, and volunteers were enlisted. Newspapers reported that local businesses raised money to distribute 75,000 buttons proclaiming: “The Important Thing Is Education.”
12,500 STUDENTS & 531 TEACHERS
were transferred to new schools
Mayor Knox White, then a sophomore at Greenville High School, recalled that the students “took it all in stride and took it very well.” “There was a high degree of awareness of what was happening in that we needed to pull together to make it successful,” he said. But integration had been forced, and resentment lingered. It all came to a head when black students began objecting to the playing of “Dixie,” the school’s fight song, at school events, Bob Farnsworth, who was then a senior at Greenville High, recalled. Farnsworth, who was the student body president, said there had been no issues with the song before.
blacks and whites, and hundreds of black students walked out of class. The U.S. News & World Report described police using tear gas to break up a brawl at J.L. Mann and said National Guardsmen had been put on “standby alert.” But no students were expelled. The school district, led by Superintendent J. Floyd Hall, quietly pushed forward, appointing black and white ombudsmen to help settle students and pass questions and complaints to the administration. Federal money was used to fund programs on black history and black culture and to bring in black artists. In May 1971, the Christian Science Monitor published an article saying Greenville had regained its luster. The headline read: “Carolina school district stages desegregation comeback.”
Of the students who were reassigned 7,500 were black & 5,000 were white “Suddenly, somebody gave that song power, and this fight song was demonized,” he said. “It got out of hand very quickly.” The unrest spread to other schools the following year. In November 1971, disruptions were reported at six area high schools. Fights broke out between

55 black students transferred to white schools under a limited freedom of choice plan after the federal courts refuse to dismiss the case.
MAY 1968 U.S. Supreme Court declares that freedom of choice plans are unacceptable because they did not lead to integration.
JANUARY 1970 Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals orders Greenviller to submit a plan of desegregation.
FEBRUARY 1970 Federal judge approves integration plan proposed by the school district, and the district is given 11 days to comply.

Greenville Pavilion to close for renovations in March n story by JESSICA MULLEN | rendering provided by GREENVILLE REC.
The Pavilion Recreational Complex in Taylors is scheduled to close for renovations March 1 with a scheduled reopening set for Sept. 30.

The upgrades have been needed for decades, says Bob Mihalic, governmental af-

fairs coordinator for Greenville County. "These are the changes that our patrons who use the ice most often have asked for," he says. "In 2016, we upgraded the ice, and now we’re focused on the amenities around the ice. It will get our facility ready for the next few decades.” Every part of the facility will be closed, including the main rink, the in-line rink and the bounce house area. Only the outdoor tennis courts will remain open during the sevenmonth period. The rink is currently open to the public seven days a week and serves more than 180,000 people annually, according to Mihalic. The closure was announced in July 2019. For many of the Pavilion's user groups, the announcement began an exodus to new ice in a region of the country where it can be hard to find. "This is my home rink. I’ve been here since day one," says Charis Sloan, a contracted figure skating instructor who grew up learning to skate at the Pavilion.
VISITING SOON? CLOSED
Sloan, who lives 45 minutes away from the rink, teaches there 12 to 15 hours a week. During the closure, she plans to travel to the nearest available rinks in Irmo or Indian Trail, North Carolina, to continue teaching with her most dedicated skaters. "Some students on the fringes of the sport will be faced with a decision: drive two hours away to another rink or just take time off," says Sloan, who anticipates losing up to a third of her students due to the logistics and cost of making it to another rink. "Right now, we’re going through a boom with a lot of people moving into town from other areas of the U.S. and the world. For the longest time, we were the only rink in the state," Sloan says.

The Tryon International Equestrian Center kicks off its 2020 season Feb. 7. The Tryon landmark will bring in elite equestrian competitors and local fans alike as it enters its 73rd year of hosting competitions. The off-season has been full of preparation. “While we continue to offer dining and entertainment events throughout the winter, January and February are important months for us to refresh our facilities, prepare awards and organize logistically for what will be a very busy season for us,” says Sharon Decker, chief operating officer of Tryon Resort. “We’ve added driving to the calendar this year for the first time since it was part of the International Federation for Equestrian Sports World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018, and that’s particularly exciting,” Decker says. She also highlights the 73rd Tryon Block House Races, which will take place
on April 11, as a highly-anticipated steeplechase and tailgating event. In 2020, the center plans to host 15 international-level competitions across all disciplines. In some competitions, such as show jumping, Tryon International Equestrian Center will host as many as 100 riders representing different countries. Decker says that approximately 60% of them will represent countries outside of the United States. At the height of the season, the facility can accommodate up to 1,400 horses in its seven barns and indoor complex. Decker says the facility reaches capacity during the summer and fall series. The international draw has a massive local impact, according to Decker. “Tryon International Equestrian Center was the highest taxpayer in Polk County [North Carolina] in the 2019 fiscal year, and as the venue continues to become

The center isn’t just for the equestrian elite. “Tryon Resort is for all who love horses, active lifestyle and outdoor living,” Decker says. “We are open to the public seven days a week, and horse shows generally run Wednesdays through Sundays, which gives plenty of opportunities to come see horses on-site.” The “Saturday Night Lights” event series is a free, familyoriented series hosted Saturday evenings from May through October. The event offers free kids’ activities, pony rides, face painting, live music, concessions and more, all before the weekly competition begins in Tryon Stadium. Though Tryon International Equestrian Center is an easy day trip away from Greenville, it also offers on-site lodging that ranges from one-bedroom “tiny house” cabins to three- and five-bedroom creekside cabins.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Changing lives one conversation at a time Tanglewood Middle School principal is one of youngest in Greenville County n story by JOHN JETER | photo by DOVE LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 7
Edward Anderson remembers one of the earliest lessons he learned as a teacher was when a student stopped by one day to talk — only to get an earful about school rules and meeting expectations. Now that young man sits in prison for life after murdering his girlfriend. “Sometimes, it takes one poignant conversation to change the trajectory of a person or a child. I was 23 years old at the time, and that was my chance to have changed his trajectory,” Anderson says a decade later. At 33, Anderson is one of the youngest principals in Greenville County Schools, running Tanglewood Middle School since 2017. He oversees 85 faculty and staff and some 850 students. For the first time since his arrival 11 years ago, African Americans comprise a minority, 42%, with Hispanics numbering 45% and white students at 11%. Anderson grew up in Southernside, about five miles from his school just off White Horse Road. He knows what it’s like to come from an under-resourced neighborhood — and what it takes to get to where he is, including the doctorate in education he earned in 2014. “If we were in trouble with one family, we were in trouble with all families. Everyone knew what was going on,” he says with a laugh. His mother was 14 when she gave birth to Edward. A 2008 University of South Carolina graduate, he went on to teach at Lakeview Middle School. His awards include the 2019 Xanthene Norris Educational Achievement Award; 2017 Urban League Talented Tenth; and districtwide Teacher of the Year for 2012-2013. “He’s the man my boys need to see so they can grow up and be successful and have

Cassie Anderson, who is 34 and white, says their two sons, Ellison, 5, and Micah, 1, aren’t old enough to realize that their parents, together, don’t look like they do. Mostly, she says, they just notice how hard their dad works. “To be a product of the community, of Greenville County Schools, and to be successful and giving back to the community where he grew up is very important to him,” she says. “Other people often remark on how wonderful he is, but I can’t say anything but ‘thank you.’” During an interview 50 years after Greenville County Schools’ desegregation, Anderson talks about the same things as he looks forward to February’s commemorations: gratitude and community. “We have to come together to solve our own issues because we’re closer to the problem,” he says. “Black History Month does say to the world that, ‘Hey, all right, we’re focusing on this community right now.’ So what does this community have to say?

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 7
A new aerial adventure course is in the works for Greenville, slated to be built at the site of the future Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail extension off Laurens Road at the intersection of Rector and E. Washington streets. The Flying Rabbit will be a three-story, tree-spanning obstacle course, the first of its kind in the Upstate. The adventure park will feature a multilevel design with four tiers of difficulty to accommodate a wide range of ages and thrill-seekers.
We wanted to create a park-like setting where residents of Greenville can come and hang out for the entire day in the woods.” -Jonathan Simmons, managing partner, the Flying Rabbit But the adventure course is not yet a sure thing. The Flying Rabbit will require a special exception from the Board of Zoning Appeals to be approved, which will be reviewed on Feb. 13 during a public hearing. Jonathan Simmons, a managing partner with the Flying Rabbit, said the area where the course will be built is unique in that it features very large mature oak trees.
“We’re looking to preserve that area’s large trees while also allowing people to do this three-story obstacle course within those trees,” Simmons said. “You basically have routes that are like ski routes: beginning, intermediate and expert.” The adventure course will also feature a canopy walk sky bridge for those looking to enjoy the views without too much adrenaline. Those who want to stay more grounded can take part in the pump track down below, which accommodates kids bikes, mountain bikes, BMX bikes, skateboards and scooters. There will also be a mountain bike trail. “We wanted to create a park-like setting where residents of Greenville can come and hang out for the entire day in the woods,” Simmons said. With the future Swamp Rabbit Trail extension planned for the area, Simmons said one key aspect of the course will be routes that span from one side of the trail to the other, giving those up high a view of the trail-goers below. The aerial course will be constructed within Holland Park, a 12-acre mixedused development that will feature Home Team BBQ, Double Stamp Brewery, a half-acre of shaded green space and more than 18,000 square feet of additional office, retail and restaurants. No date has been set for the course’s completion.

County looks ﬁve years ahead for affordable housing
n story by EVAN PETER SMITH
Every five years, the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) puts together what’s known as its “consolidated plan,” which looks at the county’s affordable housing needs in the coming halfdecade. The plan describes the housing needs of the low- and moderate-income residents across five participating county municipalities (the city of Greenville being excluded), while outlining strategies to meet those needs. This latest comprehensive plan, for which the Redevelopment Authority held a kickoff meeting on Jan. 30, comes as “the drumbeat for affordable housing has grown louder and louder,” according to Joe Smith, operations director for the organization. With access to affordable housing taking center stage in the ongoing debate over the County Square redevelopment, Smith said the coming half-decade will be a crucial period for ensuring low- to moderate-income residents are not left behind as the county grows. Established in 1974, the GCRA works to secure resources and educate stake-

That means everything from building subsidized homes, to repairing homes, to improving surrounding infrastructure, to demolishing unsafe properties, to improving facades and more. The last half decade saw the GCRA construct 55 new housing units and 73 rental units, financially assist 120 households in buying their first homes, rehab 280 housing units, improve 22 storefronts and rapidly rehouse 350 homeless individuals.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
JOSEPH VAUGHN BROKE FURMAN’S COLOR BARRIER Adare Smith was in Furman University’s Trone Student Center one day when she noticed a plaque honoring the man who broke the color barrier there in 1965. For Marcus Tate, it wasn’t until he attended Furman that he learned that that man was his cousin. Fifty-five years after Joseph Vaughn became the school’s first African American student, Tate and Smith participated in the university’s inaugu-

ral commemoration of the Greenville trailblazer and the day he arrived on campus — and made history. “Jan. 29 being so close to February, you really couldn’t ask for a more perfect gateway into celebrating Black History Month,” says Smith, 21, an English major from Greenwood. “We don’t have to look to all of these outside places or to all these people who are exclusively in history books to look for black history. Black history is right here where we’re standing, where we go to class every day.” Tate, 35, a Furman alumnus and now digital marketing director at Steve White Auto Group, was 7 years old when Vaughn, his grandmother’s cousin, died. Vaughn, whose great-grandfather was born into slavery, said in a 1986 speech that he enrolled in Furman not as part of any movement, “but I was equally determined that I was coming to Furman to be ‘Joe Vaughn: student,’ not ‘Joe Vaughn: black student.’” After graduating cum laude in 1968, Vaughn taught English in Columbia and Greenville for 13 years. He died in 1991 at age 45.

Within 30 minutes or less from downtown, these three mountain communities each offer different architectural styles and amenities
MOUNTAIN PROPERTIES: Escapes with altitude n story by JEANNIE PUTNAM
Mountain properties offer an escape from the busier life around Greenville by placing residents into a less developed area where they can enjoy mountain views and fresh air. Residents in communities like The Ridges at Paris Mountain, The Cliffs at Glassy and Montebello enjoy their privacy by living in smaller subdivisions. These communities also allow residents to enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways. Both The Ridges at Paris Mountain and The Cliffs at Glassy give residents access to golf courses. The Ridges uses Green Valley Country Club’s course, whereas The Cliffs at Glassy has its own. In addition to golfing, residents of all three communities can enjoy nature by exploring nearby parks or hiking. All three of these communities are also located 30 minutes or less from downtown Greenville. Residents will experience weather similar to Greenville, but living at a higher altitude means an increased chance of seeing snow.
THE RIDGES AT PARIS MOUNTAIN theridgesatparismountain.com
• 18 customized and masterfully crafted residences. • Partnered with Green Valley Country Club and Furman University’s Herman W. Lay Physical Activities Center. • Residents receive a free month of fitness membership with the purchase of a yearly membership for $35 per month. • Every part of The Ridges has been designed with purpose and attention to detail, resulting in an unprecedented mountain community that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

FOREST KITCHEN DESIGN STUDIO
Light & Bright
White won’t quit — data from national manufacturers show this. There is a recent divergence, though, between warmer, creamier whites and the cooler, slightly grayer whites. This light and bright look is typically contrasted against natural or jewel-tone splashes in certain areas such as the kitchen island.
As mentioned before, jewel tones, especially in greens and blues, are big. Blues have been big, but jasper greens as well as hunter or brighter true greens are trending upward. We encourage clients to go bold in powder rooms, and the vanity color is often the key place to compliment a more subdued kitchen.
High-Sheen or Super-Matte Materials
High-sheen materials are being favored, even if monochromatic, to create a stunning, clean look. High-gloss tiles in simple geometric patterns are big. High-gloss acrylic cabinet doors are sharp and crisp looking. Representing the other end of the sheen spectrum are the super-matte materials. Leathered or honed stone countertops bring a softer feel and aesthetic to a kitchen, and super-matte lacquer cabinet finishes can soften a contemporary kitchen’s edge and make it feel truly liveable.

Marble & Quartzite Counter-tops
We are strong advocates of natural stone such as marble because of its tremendous beauty, but to use it one must embrace it like the Europeans do — let it patina naturally and don’t be afraid of it. Quartzite — not to be confused with the ever-popular quartz — is another natural beauty of the counter-top world that is much more forgiving than marble.

Ranges & Column Refrigerators
All-in-one ranges are on trend right now rather than separate cook tops and ovens. Stainless steel finishes continue to dominate, although some are bold enough to do a red range. Even though the 30-inch range continues to be industry standard, we plan a large share of kitchens utilizing 36- and 48-inchwide ranges. Refrigeration trends are moving toward separate refrigerator and freezer columns that can be mixed and matched and dressed in cabinetry fronts to completely appear as a cabinet, thus keeping aesthetic clean and integrated. The industry standard for refrigerators continues to be 36”, but we often plan combinations up to 48” wide.

‘AXEL’ ARRIVES... n story by PAUL HYDE photo courtesy of CIRQUE DU SOLEIL
The fearless acrobats of Cirque du Soleil love a challenge. That’s why the contemporary circus company staged its latest show, “Axel,” on ice. “We thought it was important to explore new regions,” said artistic director Fabrice Lemire, speaking on the phone from a tour stop in Cincinnati. “We love to keep our shows fresh — to reinvent the wheel!” “Axel” arrives at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena Feb. 13 with six shows through Feb. 16. This production, only a few months old, features 40 skaters, acrobats and musicians. Fans can expect the usual eye-popping and death-defying aerial acrobatics for which Cirque du Soleil is famous. Added to the mix this time is world-class skating. The show is propelled by a hard-charging rock band. Everything is surrounded, of course, by surreal sets and aesthetics. It takes 15 tractor-trailers to transport the lights and expansive Cirque scenery from city to city.
As usual for Cirque shows, there’s a fanciful storyline behind the proceedings: The young musician Axel falls for the captivating Lei. Together they jet off on a fast-moving quest through fantastic and colorful worlds to retrieve the stolen light from the mystical Vi. “Axel” is actually the second show Cirque has staged on ice. The first, several years ago, was “Crystal,” for which Lemire also was artistic director. Greenville is one of the first stops for “Axel” on a multi-year tour that will take the show across the U.S. and likely to Europe and elsewhere. It was designed last summer in and around Montreal, the home of Cirque du Soleil. What does Lemire, the artistic director, love most about the show? “What I love is to see a performer really get outside of his or her comfort zone,” Lemire said. “I like to see artists grow. When a performer is surprising not only you but also himself or herself, that’s very exciting.”

‘Aladdin’ takes magic carpet ride into Peace Center
PAUL HYDE Contributor

CAMPS “ALADDIN” Ask the star of “Aladdin” to reveal his favorite moment in the stage show, and he responds without hesitation. “It’s flying on the carpet!” That’s the scene when the young couple, Aladdin and Jasmine, sing “A Whole New World,” perhaps the musical’s most familiar song, while soaring on an enchanted carpet. “It’s pure magic for the audience but also for myself and the actress playing Jasmine,” said Jonah Ho‘okano, who performs the role of Aladdin.

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 7
Disney’s “Aladdin,” a show for the whole family, arrives at the Peace Center on Wednesay, Feb. 12, for a two-week run, with 16 performances scheduled. The story, based on the ancient set of tales known as “The Thousand and One Nights,” follows the young Aladdin, who find a magic lamp and is given three wishes from the Genie inside. He transforms himself into a prince to win the heart of the princess Jasmine. With music by Broadway hitmeister Alan Menken, the show features a memorable score with consummate showstoppers such as “Friend Like Me” and several songs that were not part of the hit 1992 Disney animated film of “Aladdin.”
» FEB. 12-23 | TIMES VARY » PEACE CENTER » $40-$110 PEACECENTER.ORG Tuneful ballads alternate with full-ensemble dazzlers. “What the ensemble does in ‘Friend Like Me’ is insanity. It’s quick change after quick change after quick change,” Ho‘okano said. “You won’t know how the ensemble does it, and I still don’t know either.” LAVISH PRODUCTION The national tour is a notably lavish production with an array of colorful costumes and sets that require 30 tractor-trailers for transportation from city to city. “I think we’re using the most tractortrailers of Broadway tours that are out now,” Ho‘okano said, speaking from a tour stop in Orlando. It’s a high-tech show as well, with 84 illusions and special effects, such as Ho‘okano’s favorite, the flying carpet. “People always ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ when the carpet flies,” he said. Ho‘okano, who grew up in Hawaii, created the role of Aladdin in a recent Disney Cruise Line version of “Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular.” He’s also played the role in other performing arts venues, such as at Tokyo Disney and Disnelyand in California. “I’m playing a dream role,” he said.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
for TEZ SHERARD, keeping the beat is a family thing VINCENT HARRIS Contributor
There are few sights on the Upstate music scene more familiar or welcome than Tez Sherard sitting behind his drums with a smile on his face, laying down beats for any number of bands. Equally skilled in rock, country, soul and jazz, Sherard came by his vocation naturally. “My dad was a musician, and my mom was a singer,” Sherard says, “so I grew up in a very musical household.” That being said, Sherard’s most likely path seemed like guitar or bass playing, simply because that’s what his dad played. But Tez actually became a drummer because his father needed a hand doing something else. “My dad taught guitar and bass, and he would have a lot of his students come for lessons,” Sherard says. “And timing was always a factor with him trying to teach them chord progressions and chord patterns. He would always end up having to turn on a drum machine in order to keep time. And eventually, he’d have me come in and clap while he was teaching his students. And one day he said, ‘Wow, you’ve got good rhythm! Let me get a drum set in here.’ And I really took a liking to it and spent a lot of time on it, and the rest is history.” Well, not quite. First off, Sherard had to move beyond his toy drum kit, one that didn’t stand up too well to his constant playing. “It was a junior drum set with all professional cymbals,” Sherard says with a laugh.
That’s what I’ve always tried to do with my playing; play the song, be truthful to the elements of the song, but at the same time put my fingerprints on it. -Tez Sherard, drummer
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 7
TEZ SHERARD “There’s a picture of me with a kiddie set with these big ol’ ’80s Zildjian cymbals around the drum set, because I was hitting the little toy cymbals that came with the set so hard that I was cracking them. So he eventually got me a full set.” Sherard’s dad wasn’t done making modifications just yet, though. Once his son started playing live shows, there were some other obstacles to overcome. “I was a child, and being so short, having short legs, they never could find a drum throne that was small enough for me to reach the pedals,” Sherard says, “so I would stand up when I played. So he had the bright idea of taking an old barstool and cutting the legs down so low that I could actually sit and hit the pedals. But that also meant you couldn’t see me. Everybody could hear the drums and see sticks flying all over the place, but nobody could see my head!” Sherard grew into a drummer who’s as versatile as they come, and he credits one of the biggest bands of the 1970s for showing him that musicians don’t have to stay within one genre.
Instrument: Drums Plays with: The Jamie Wright Band, Nathan Angelo, Edwin McCain, Carolina Coast Band, Wanda Johnson, J-E-T, many more
“Earth, Wind & Fire were a big influence on me,” he says. “I always knew that I gravitated to them, but I never understood that the basis of the band was jazz, and then they started to move in the soul and funk directions later on. But the original blueprint of Earth, Wind & Fire was jazz fusion. So as I got older, that got me into a lot of different styles of music.” In any given week, Sherard could be playing with as many as 20 musicians in different configurations, and he can fit right in like a chameleon. But he says his ultimate goal is always the same, no matter what style of music he’s playing. “There was a drummer named Dennis Chambers, who has recorded and played
with everybody,” he says, “but no matter what he’s playing, you can hear his fingerprints. That’s what I’ve always tried to do with my playing: Play the song, be truthful to the elements of the song, but at the same time put my fingerprints on it.”
Andrew Stevovich February 5 through March 29, 2020
Andrew Stevovich (born 1948) moved from Austria to the United States in 1950. He grew up in Washington, D.C., and as a child often visited the National Gallery of Art, where he was captivated by the Renaissance paintings that continue to influence his work. Spanning almost three decades, his paintings depict ordinary men and women in mundane situations and locations, ranging from restaurants and bars to public transportation. With their clean design, vibrant colors, and exquisitely finished surfaces, the works are informed by the Old Master paintings he first loved as a boy. This is “gestural” painting for the Simpsons Generation.

How to travel like a local: Downtown Asheville Traversing downtown Asheville, North Carolina, like a local means walking. And, since you can’t be underdressed in Asheville — running shoes, flip-flops, boots of any kind and age are the norm — ambling blocks between food and drink stops can feel like an escape from the norm. I’m asked weekly where to go in Asheville. So much is notable, both old and new, that I’ll focus here on downtown with a promise to highlight other districts soon. So, you want to go to Cúrate? Yep, locals love Katie Button’s mecca of tapas too. Here’s how to get in: go at 2:30 p.m. Sit at the bar and chat with a sous chef and enjoy the skill of this staff at its best. A skip away is the reopened Asheville Art Museum. The expansion is wrapped in glass and its collection of Black Mountain College art is unparalleled. If it’s Thursday, then Perspective Café (on the fifth floor) is open until 9 p.m.; plan for fantastic small
plates, noteworthy cocktails and mountain air on the sculpture deck. No trip to Asheville is complete without a lap through Tops for Shoes; the store, nearly a block long, carries every brand you covet in every imaginable size. The sale room is the stuff of legend. 5 Walnut wine bar offers a fantastic bythe-glass list and feels just right after brewery stops. Live music is on the calendar every night, and there is usually a sociable dog or two under a table and a knot of locals who will dance with friends and tourists alike. End a day in Asheville at The Montford Rooftop Bar. Chef Philip Bollhoefer runs a stellar kitchen with a smart, delicious cocktail program and the views are everything you drive up the mountain for.

where we're EATING BASIL THAI
Basil Thai is in the downstairs area of Aloft Greenville
9 NORTH LAURENS ST, GREENVILLE
Parking in one place and not having to leave the area for multiple activities brings with it a small sense of joy. So enjoy the convenience of parking in the Aloft parking garage, hanging a left from the breezeway and landing at Basil Thai Cuisine, just underneath the show location. Tucked away in One City Plaza at 9. N. Laurens St., Greenville, Basil’s Greenville spot is not as visually prominent as the original King Street Charleston location, but the basil rolls are just as fresh and flavorful. Since you’ll likely be drinking plenty upstairs at the show, opt for hot tea service for a pick-me-up with dinner.
BASIL THAI IS THE REALIZATION OF THE LIFELONG DREAM OF HENRY AND CHAI EANG, WHO IMMIGRATED TO THE U.S. FROM CAMBODIA
RECOMMENDED DISHES: Fresh basil rolls (two) ............$6.95
Shrimp, rice noodles, lettuce, bean sprouts and basil, wrapped in a rice paper wrapper. Served with chef Suntorn’s house sauce
Masaman curry ....................$15.50 Potatoes, onions and cashew nuts
Basil duck (to share) ............$26.95 Boneless half duck, deep-fried, topped with basil, bell peppers, onions, garlic, snow peas and button mushrooms. Stir-fried with the house Basil Sauce
what we're SEEING APRIL B. & THE COOL AT ALOFT GREENVILLE
April Bennett was once a familiar face on the Greenville music scene, a compelling frontwoman who could captivate a crowd with an acoustic guitar or lay down sinuous, seductive funk-soul-rock grooves with her fantastic backing band, The Cool. April B. relocated to Asheville, North Carolina, a few years back, though, and we don’t get as many chances to see her around here. That’s a shame, because she and her band have developed by leaps and bounds since heading up to North Carolina, adding guitarist J.P. Miller and becoming a more explosive, joyous outfit that can jam all night or drive home a pinpoint-precise groove. Take this chance to see her and The Cool back in town this weekend.

Young chef heads Bar Mars
Herring Chamber Ensemble of the Greenville Chorale presents:
“Music of Then and Now”
n story by EVAN PETER SMITH | photo by SARAH COCHRAN
Sunday, February 23, 2020 – 3:00 pm Charles E. Daniel Chapel, Furman University
At just 24 years old, it’s fair to say Jen Anderson is objectively on the younger side for someone running her own kitchen. Anderson recently came on board as the head chef at Bar Mars, the new cocktail bar and restaurant that operates out of the old Golden Brown & Delicious location on Pendleton Street. Although the GB&D name is still painted on the side of the building (for now, that is), Anderson is already bringing her unique style of smallplate, made-from-scratch, elevated bar food to the Village of West Greenville.
I want it to be simple, but then there’s always a little element of surprise: the familiar and the unfamiliar.” -Jen Anderson, head chef, Bar Mars “It’s very important to be to be respectful of the history and everything Alex has put into this space,” Anderson said, referring to Alex George, the co-owner of Bar Mars and head chef at GB&D. Anderson got her start working under George in the GB&D kitchen in 2016. With no formal training — she actually has a degree in interior design — Anderson developed her style on the fly, with GB&D acting as her informal culinary school. Since GB&D has moved to its new location in The Commons, Anderson said the challenge for her was how to reinvent the old space while also paying proper homage to its history. The burger is a good example of that challenge. Anderson wanted to keep the simplicity of GB&D’s popular burger, while still offering something unique. “There’s always a little element of surprise: the familiar and the unfamiliar,” she said. That focus on balance drives the everevolving Bar Mars menu, which includes
staples like mac and cheese, French fries and salads, as well as Southern favorites like hushpuppies and fried cauliflower. There are also more unique options like pork belly bao dumplings and sautéed oyster with shiitake mushrooms and soft egg. “When I get a thumbs-up from everybody else I work with, that’s when I know the dish is done,” she said. Bar Mars is operated primarily by just four people. Besides Anderson in the kitchen, there’s Chris George, previously of the Anchorage, who runs the creative cocktail services. Former GB&D food truck worker Justin Klack is the jack-of-all trades and so-called “prep master,” according to Anderson. And Sarah Cochran is the business mind and in-house photographer. “Everything builds on itself,” Anderson said. “Moving forward, it’s still going to be the four of us, everyone doing their part.”
The magnificent 24-voice Herring Chamber Ensemble will feature works by Dan Forrest, Mark Kilstofte, Eric Whitacre, and John Tavener. Last season, the Chorale performed Handel’s Messiah, Parts One and Two. The Herring Ensemble will complete the work with Messiah, Part Three, joined by a chamber orchestra to perform this beautiful music “as Handel himself would have heard it.” For tickets, call 864-467-3000 or visit www.greenvillechorale for more information.

Brushing your teeth and then taking a giant swig of orange juice — that’s how James Alford of Foxcroft Wine Co. compares the palate experience of badly paired chocolate and wine. But that contradicts the marketing. Look around the few weeks before Valentine’s Day, and you’ll see images of red wine and chocolates suggested as the perfect gift for your loved one. The obvious message: All red wine and dark chocolate taste good together.
It’s important to make people understand, we’re talking about something that is actually scientific.” -James Alford, Foxcroft Wine Co. “Wrong,” Alford says. Pairing a dry red with a sweet bite is contrary to the science behind which flavors enhance each other. Tasting an almost no-sugar drink with a high-sugar dessert won’t improve either one, and in fact, will cause an unpleasant sensation that may make you think you really don’t like the wine you’re tasting. “One thing with a lot of sugar and one with almost no sugar don’t pair well together,” Alford says. The result will bring out the tannins and acidity of the wine to an uncomfortable level for most people. Alford recommends pairing a sweet thing with another sweet thing — for in-
stance, a sweeter red wine with a chocolate truffle — which will cause the sugars to essentially cancel each other out and then allow you to taste the other flavors in the wine or chocolate. Elizabeth McDaniel, owner of LaRue Fine Chocolates, has some guidance for those wondering what they should pair for the quintessential Valentine’s Day gift, with some consideration for people’s tastes. “I think people should do whatever makes them happy,” she says. “If having a highly tannic Napa Valley cab makes you happy, then do it.” But, she says, if you’ve had that toothpaste-and-orange-juice experience, she’s spent the last several years homing in on her recommendations. At the end of February, McDaniel is opening her first brick-and-mortar chocolaterie in the Poe West development in the Village of West Greenville, where she will pair her handcrafted high-end chocolates and desserts with alcoholic beverages.
Bourbon or cognac are my favorite to pair with chocolates.” -Elizabeth McDaniel, owner, LaRue Fine Chocolates For wine, she looks for zinfandels, grenache-based blends and syrahs/shirazes that are on the jammier side for the sugar balance. In addition, maybe look for a sweeter white wine as well, she says. Wine isn’t her top recommendation, though. “Bourbon or cognac are my favorite to pair with chocolates,” she says. She often holds beer pairings, as well, and recommends porter and stout beers along with milkshake IPAs that work well because of the lactose content. The science, however, doesn’t negate personal taste. “Everyone’s taste buds are different,” McDaniel says.

Third Coast Percussion brings eclectic sound to Peace Center

n story by VINCENT HARRIS | photo by SAVERIO TRUGLIA
The Grammy-award-winning ensemble Third Coast Percussion has spent 15 years proving that classical music doesn’t always have to be performed using strings, brass or keys. The quartet uses everything from marimbas to vibraphones to tuned cowbells, steel pipes, glockenspiel, children’s desk bells, crotales, a Thai gong and a singing bowl. Playing either its own pieces or those the quartet has commissioned from a wide variety of classical-avant-garde composers, Third Coast has carved a singular niche for its members as both percussion innovators and educators. For its upcoming Feb. 10 performance at the Peace Center, Third Coast member David Skidmore says the audience should expect the unexpected. “We’re going to be playing some instruments that the audience has never heard before,” he says, “and we’ll be playing a really wide range of styles of music. Percussion is this thing that you can find all over the world, but each culture has a unique sound and unique take on that instrument type.”
There’s so much melody in percussion. Melody and harmony are big parts of what we do in addition to these crazy rhythms and awesome sounds.” -David Skidmore, Third Coast Percussion The through-line in much of Third Coast’s material is the unexpectedly musical possibilities of instruments
THIRD COAST PERCUSSION » MONDAY, FEB. 10 | 7PM » PEACE CENTER GUNTER THEATRE » $45 PEACECENTER.ORG that most people associate with rhythm, not melody. “There’s so much melody in percussion,” Skidmore says. “Melody and harmony are big parts of what we do in addition to these crazy rhythms and awesome sounds.” There are compositions for percussion ensembles dating back to the 1930s, but there often weren’t professional groups to play them, and Skidmore says that’s because it’s more challenging to form a percussion group than other types of classical ensembles. “If you want to start a string quartet, you typically already own your stringed instrument,” he says. “If you want to start a percussion quartet, there’s no guarantee that you’re going to own a marimba, or a vibraphone or a set of drums. Then there’s finding a place to rehearse; if you’re a percussion quartet, you have to find a space that’s big enough so you can make enough sound. So there are some barriers.” Skidmore says that ultimately, Third Coast Percussion’s goal is to break down some of those barriers. “This music is still unfamiliar to a lot of people,” he says, “but when people are introduced to it, they so often find it fun and unique and inspiring. So that’s our life’s work to get it out there.”

Local author Megan Prewitt Koon talks ‘Sweet Divinity’
Jianna goes independent from Table 301
n story by EVAN PETER SMITH | photo by PAUL MCHAFFEY
n story by EVAN PETER SMITH photos PROVIDED
Greenville author Megan Prewitt Koon is fresh off the recent publication of her debut novel, “Sweet Divinity,” a story of one woman’s journey toward self-discovery. If the title is any giveaway, it’s also a tale of sweetness — both literal sweetness (expect some mouth-watering descriptions of delicious pastries and desserts) as well as the more metaphorical kind. So it’s only right that we chatted with Koon over bowls of chocolate gelato to hear more about her process and motivation as a writer.
GJ: WHAT IS “SWEET DIVINITY” ABOUT? MPK: It’s a story of a woman whose marriage dissolves and she moves back to the farm on which she was raised to try to restart her life, to find herself again as an independent person. She’s trying to recapture the goals that she originally had. Her life has morphed, of course, in order to be part of a family. But she had goals of being a baker, a small-business owner, and opening her own place. Now she’s a single mother, moving back in with her mom, which has a whole lot of complications going along with it, so she’s navigating those transitions in life. Really, the story is about how much of home stays with you even when you go off and make a new life for yourself. You may have gone to a whole new place, but how much of that home is still retained inside of you?
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR THE STORY? MPK: Well, I grew up on a farm in northwest Georgia, in a very small town called
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 7
Chatsworth. When I came to Greenville to attend Furman University, I thought it was just the biggest city. So I grew up with that experience of wanting to get out of my farm town and go somewhere else. I had dreams of going to New York City, all these big goals. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve begun to appreciate more of the nice things about where I came from. In that small town, the things that used to annoy me before, I now find many of them charming. Now that I have that shifted perspective, I was thinking about that and trying to write something that was both critical where it should be of the place I’m from, but was also in many ways a love letter of sorts to that kind of place too.
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE TITLE? MPK: I didn’t have any idea of what the title would be until I was almost completely finished with the book. I was thinking about how when I was a little girl, one of my favorite things to do in my hometown was to go to the country fair, and my favorite booth at the fair was a church’s booth at which they sold divinity candy. I realized later that a lot of people don’t know what divinity candy is. It’s basically egg whites and sugar, a confection. It looks like a white meringue, but it’s very sticky. It’s all kinds of goodness: white, fluffy looking, pure sugar, which is divine. I was thinking about that candy and how much I loved it, and also how painstaking a process it is to make divinity candy. It takes a lot of time and effort. So I really like the double play on the divinity that is the candy, as well as the divine intervention, so to speak, when things finally come together and the universe is on your side. And the journey toward reaching that point is really what this book is all about.
Jianna is now under new ownership. As of Feb. 1, the Italian restaurant and oyster bar at Falls Park Place in downtown Greenville is owned entirely by Jianna head chef Michael Kramer. The news of the restaurant going independent of the Table 301 Restaurant Group was announced to Jianna staff by Kramer and Table 301 Founder and President Carl Sobocinski at a meeting on Tuesday Feb. 4. “We made sure what we’ve built for everyone at Jianna doesn’t change,” Sobocinski said. “This is a talented crew with the right mindset. Service and food quality won’t change, so we can assure everyone that Jianna will be flying high for a long time.” Jianna is the third Table 301 restaurant to go independent or announce plans to go independent from the restaurant group in the past year alone. Last March, Papi’s Tacos on the Reedy River shifted ownership over to Jorge “Papi” Barrales, and Passerelle Bistro at Falls Park is in the process of transitioning ownership to its current general manager Mike Minelli. Sobocinski won’t deny what seems to be a recent pattern. “There is a pattern, sure, but it’s a pattern of wanting to help hardworking people be-
TABLE 301 RESTAURANTS: — Soby's — — Soby's on the Side — — The Lazy Goat — — Nose Dive — — Passerelle Bistro — — Southern Pressed Juicery — — Highway 301 — — Table 301 Catering & Kitchen —
I’ll never leave Soby’s. I want to be buried in the basement behind the wine cellar.” -Carl Sobocinski, founder, Table 301 come independent entrepreneurs,” he said. The recent string of restaurants going independent comes as Sobocinski himself eyes what he calls an “exit strategy” – which he stresses does not mean retirement. Instead, he wants to evolve the restaurant group with a focus on uplifting younger potential entrepreneurs, leaving behind a legacy for when he does eventually step back. “I could keep building the machine up as big as possible, then find some equity firm and sell to someone. Sure, that’s one strategy,” Sobocinski said. “But then I think back to, how is that helping individuals? The way to help the community is to have a whole bunch of entrepreneurs, leaving behind a legacy of people who hopefully share that philosophy as well.” He said any restaurant in the Table 301 portfolio is now a candidate for going independent, with the exception of Soby’s. “I’ll never leave Soby’s. I want to be buried in the basement behind the wine cellar,” he said. Modeling Table 301 as a kind of restaurant incubator, Sobocinski wants to offer rising chefs and entrepreneurs a chance to grow a concept under the umbrella of the restaurant group, eventually letting them take that concept independent on their own. Other ideas, such as using the Soby’s on the Side location as a week-long popup kitchen for chefs to try out new concepts, are also on the table. Even as Sobocinski admits to wanting to spend more time with his family and working on philanthropic ventures, he says he and Table 301 are not going anywhere. “I might tomorrow find a building for another concept,” he said. “I still have that same entrepreneurship, that same bug. We’re not stopping anytime soon.”
