Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, couples may be upping their game to plan something spectacular. Romance isn’t lacking in Greenville, either. Last year, Passerelle Bistro, which sits right next to Falls Park overlooking the waterfalls, was named one of CNN Travel’s “World’s Most Romantic Restaurants.” As of this writing, the restaurant still had a couple of reservations open for Valentine’s Day. The National Retail Federation estimates Americans will spend an average of $196 on Valentine’s Day this year, up 21% over last year. Here are some ways to spend that money in Greenville and what local retailers tell us are the most popular items this time of year.

What is happening on Poinsett Highway as it enters Greenville? The Poinsett District Revitalization plan includes roadway improvements from Shaw Street to Cherrydale. Greenville County Council Chairman Butch Kirven described this roadway as an “eyesore, especially between the intersection with Rutherford Road and SC 291.” In 2008, stakeholders met at the Duke Sandwich Company shop on Poinsett Highway to discuss improving the entrance to the City of Greenville. (I was on the initial committee.) The goal was “to improve not only the corridor, but also the greater community throughout a circular area from the epicenter — the highway bridge over the railroad tracks,” Kirven further stated.

Phase 1 is costing $3.6million of (your!) tax money. This includes improvements such as landscaping, new traffic lights with mast arms, sidewalks on both sides of the four-lane roadway and “street furniture,” including benches.
Phase 1 will be finished in late spring 2020. “We are pleased to be at the finish line of this first phase,” said Gucker. “We have had good response from property owners and are already seeing redevelopment along the roadway.”

WHY INVEST PUBLIC MONEY?
Public roadway improvement is a catalyst for redevelopment, which is evident as retailers fix up their shops, prepare land for redevelopment and plan zoning hearings. Also, increased traffic growth requires investing in roadways. In 2018, the average daily traffic on Poinsett Highway was 29,800 vehicles, according to the SCDOT. (Want to know traffic counts on your roadway? Visit www.scdot.org and search “traffic counts” to find an interactive map.)
WHAT HAS BEEN THE INITIAL BUSINESS RESPONSE?
The response has been mixed. Several retailers are concerned that construction has disrupted their business; one retailer said her total sales from 2019 to 2018 are down by 50%. The loss of parking has been a significant shift for their customers. And every business owner mentions a growing number of homeless people along the corridor using the new benches. Others, however, see it as an improvement. Maetroy Murry, who runs her son’s detailing car shop, said the landscaping looks nice — “a good facelift for our road.” Steve Spinks, owner of the newest Spinx convenience store, on the corner of Poinsett Highway and Shaw Street, described the landscaped improvements as “helpful” to his business, adding that “the County has been great to work with.”

R IS ING WATE R How will development impact future flooding & water quality? n story by EVAN PETER SMITH
The alert from the National Weather Service came on the afternoon of Wednesday Feb. 5, the day before the storm was set to hit:
The threat for heavy and/excessive rainfall will be on the increase Thursday morning. *Rapid rises on streams and creeks are likely to occur along with the threat of flooded roads. Flooding is also likely to occur on larger rivers.
By the following day, as a torrent of rainwater pummeled Greenville and the surrounding counties, creeks and river water rose onto roadways. Homes and businesses flooded. The city of Greenville, having already activated its Emergency Operations Center, dispatched firefighters and police officers to handle downed power lines and rescue operations. About 30 workers at Mosaic Color and Additives on Sulphur Springs Road had to be rescued after the high waters of the Reedy River inundated the only road to safety. Meanwhile, in Falls Park, an individual known only as “kayak guy” rode his kayak down the frothing brown rapids of the Reedy River, a feat that earned him accolades on social media, despite the stunt being illegal under city ordinance. Eventually the storm passed, and Friday morning arrived with quiet birdsong. The rain had ceased. Rivers and creeks still ran high but had begun to ease back to normal levels. With nothing but wind trailing behind it, the storm was officially over, with no serious injuries or fatalities reported in Greenville. Things had, it seemed, returned to normal. Until the next storm, that is.

Frank Holleman, senior attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center, says anyone with open eyes can see how development is proceeding at “an incredibly rapid pace.” “And that’s especially the case in and around Greenville,” Holleman said. As a lawyer focused on environmental issues, Holleman has been working in Greenville since the early 1980s. Back then, Holleman remembers how the Reedy River would turn green and blue from pollutants dumped upstream by manufacturing plants. Since those days, the river has been cleaned up significantly, and Holleman himself has become a national authority on environmental issues, having appeared on 60 Minutes and addressed Congress. Now Holleman sees expanding development as the most significant environmental issue affecting the Upstate today. “Accelerating development near major rivers and lakes, and even in some of those protected headwaters, can adversely affect the quality of our waterways for a generation or even longer,” Holleman said. The problem is not unique to the Upstate. A 2018 report from the University of Maryland noted that nationwide “aging and inadequate infrastruc-
FROM THE COVER ture, coupled with rapid land development, increased the amount of storm runoff to already stressed drainage systems.” The report went on to mention both Hurricane Harvey’s impact on Texas and Louisiana and Hurricane Florence’s impact on the Carolinas, noting that although the storms “will be remembered as hurricanes, in many cases it was the intense rainfall that brought urban areas to a standstill, overwhelming homes and transportation arteries with flood water.”
Accelerating development near major rivers and lakes, and even in some of those protected headwaters, can adversely affect the quality of our waterways for a generation or even longer.” -Frank Holleman, senior attorney, Southern Environmental Law Center Heavy rains are only projected to get worse. In the southeast specifically, the amount of rainfall during heavy storms has increased by 27 percent since 1958, according to an Environmental Protec-
tion Agency report. That same report notes the area is expected to see increases in “humidity, average rainfall, and the frequency of heavy rainstorms” moving forward. Echoing those predictions, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration specifically noted in South Carolina’s state summary that “extreme precipitation is projected to increase.” The increased rainfall comes as South Carolina, and the Upstate in particular, see ever-expanding urban development. That development, by its very existence, destroys an ecosystem’s natural stormwater management system, replacing natural green space with impermeable surfaces like concrete and pavement. The scale of the development is often hard to grasp, according to Erika Hollis, clean water director with Upstate Forever, a Greenville-based conservation nonprofit. For comparison, every single day in the Upstate the amount of land paved over for development is equivalent to all of Haywood Mall — and that’s including the mall’s parking lots as well, according to a report from Upstate Forever. Within the next two decades, the report notes, the development footprint in the Upstate will have doubled, with new paved areas accounting for an area larger than all of Spartanburg County. And the majority of this growth, Hollis said, is projected to be within Greenville County. Beyond the visual impact of trees and nature being paved over, development expansion has far more unseen consequences, which can multiply throughout the

Local family shares its value for education through scholarship fund n story by REBECCA HOWERTON | photos PROVIDED
Before attending Clemson University, Gracie Wells, a freshman in the school’s Calhoun Honors College, had no idea how many classes and clubs were offered that would open new doors for her to meet her goals and enjoy her time on campus. Thanks to the generosity of a local family, she can benefit more from her education with less focus on financial concerns. “I’m grateful to be able to do extracurricular activities and still get the grades I want,” said Wells, 2019 recipient of the Margaret and Jack Paylor Family Scholarship. “The scholarship has allowed me to worry less about money and more about taking advantage of this opportunity.”
Margaret and Jack Paylor Family Scholarship Fund CRITERIA: • Applicant must be a resident of Greenville County, South Carolina • Applicant must have a minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 (un-weighted) scale in high school • First-time applicant must be a rising freshman planning to attend a South Carolina public college/university • Applicant must be accepted to an institution of higher learning prior to applying • Applicant must demonstrate financial need (economically disadvantaged) Majoring in foreign language and international health, Wells said the classes she enjoys most are her health class and a course in American Sign Language. “The health class is a really interesting overview of health care systems; it sounds boring, but it applies to the current situation and what we’re struggling with in the United States,” she said. “The American Sign Language class is so much fun, and so different from learning any other language, because you use your body to express yourself.” Wells participates in Clemson’s Undergraduate Student Government as

a member of a committee focused on improving sustainability on campus, speaking to fraternities and sororities about ways to incorporate more sustainable practices. She also participates in Central Spirit, an athletics-oriented club dedicated to representing Clemson at sporting events while upholding the school’s standards and traditions. Service to others has been important to Wells, and she was praised for her leadership and planning skills in her role as a student leader at the Bobby Pearse Community Center. Wells also volunteered at the Meyer Center for Special children. “My time at the Meyer Center showed me that children are all the same — whether they have special needs or not, they still want to be treated as children,” she said. “I’m not sure yet what I will do in the future, but I would like to work with children, or for a nonprofit to help people in whatever way I can.” A similar giving spirit led Margaret Paylor to create The Margaret and Jack Paylor Family Scholarship Fund in 2016 through the Community Foundation of Greenville. The scholarship provides financial assistance for higher education to economically disadvantaged students residing in Greenville County who plan to attend a South Carolina public college or university. Paylor had previously set up a donoradvised fund with the Community Foundation from which she supported organizations that further education, including the Greenville Tech Foundation, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Peace College, among others. Paylor believes, as did her late husband Jack, that higher education is key to success in life. Her parents, both college graduates, taught her the value of education at a young age; Paylor attended Peace College and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and holds a master’s degree from Clemson University. Of Wells’ success at Clemson, Paylor said, “I am very proud of her past record
of great grades and I’m proud that she is continuing that at Clemson. That is not easy and takes commitment.” A number of other individuals, families and organizations have created similar endowments through the Community Foundation of Greenville that disburse scholarship funds according to guidelines set up by the donors. They’ve entrusted the Community Foundation with the management and investment of these funds to be certain their gifts continue to support deserving students for years to come.
I’m not sure yet what I will do in the future, but I would like to work with children, or for a nonprofit to help people in whatever way I can.” -Gracie Wells, recipient, Margaret and Jack Paylor Family Scholarship G iv ing Mat ters is sponsored by t he To learn more about the Margaret and Jack Paylor Family Scholarship and other scholarships offered through the Community Foundation, visit www. cfgreenville.org/scholarships.

Sharing baked goods with good spirits n story by JOHN JETER | photo by DOVE LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 14
She doesn’t simply bake bread, she evangelizes it. Chancey Lindsey-Peake even took inspiration for her company’s name, Banana Manna: A Little Piece of Heaven, from the Old Testament food that saved Moses’ people from starvation after escaping slavery in Egypt. “There are many people who don’t know what manna is — it’s an awesome opportunity for both me and my husband to witness,” she says of the business she started after her release from prison for distributing crack cocaine. On a Thursday morning during a deluge of seemingly Biblical proportion, she dances around the commercial kitchen she and Dennis Peake, her husband of 13 years, built in the basement of their Easley home. While two convection ovens heat to 350 degrees for a batch of banana chocolate-chip loaves, she talks about how they would put some of their earnings toward their prison ministry — “to fund gas,” she says, “and we had to stay overnight in hotels, sharing the gospel at different institutions. We stayed faithful. We would not faint.” She mentions their Sunday trip to Camille Griffin Graham Correctional Institution, one of three South Carolina women’s facilities she was imprisoned in from 1991 to 2001. “Not only was I selling crack, I was my best customer,” she says of the addiction that ended her 18 years as a surgical nurse. After her release, she returned to Greenville, where a woman who she says worked for then-President George W. Bush hired her as a babysitter on Thursday nights. The woman, whose name she won’t divulge, gave her a banana bread recipe — which turned out
to be the recipe for success. “It was good, but being from a long list of grandmothers and my mother, and their time-tested recipes, I knew I could make it just a little bit better with that Southern secret spice,” she says. She started off giving away her product. “If you told me you liked it, that was all I needed. I didn’t do it for the money,” she says. Until she did, selling her goods at various flea markets.
There are many people who don’t know what manna is — it’s an awesome opportunity for both me and my husband to witness. -Chancey Lindsey-Peake, owner, Banana Manna
Banana Manna incorporated in 2010, and in 2016, the company got an $1,800 microloan. Finally, she earned a coveted vending spot in the TD Saturday Market. “Chancey’s remarkable talent for baking banana bread is surpassed only by her contagious positivity and joyful personality,” says Cameron Campbell, the city’s market coordinator. During the summer peak season, Banana Manna produces as many as 200 loaves a day in pans 4 inches by 6 inches by 2 inches. More than a dozen varieties include banana bread, cranberry banana bread, blueberry banana bread, banana bread with and without nuts, gluten-free, sugar-free, paleo and more. Several retailers carry her products, including Port City Java on Main Street and Lowes Foods, with three grocery stores in the Midlands and two in Greenville. “We love Chancey’s personal story. She has a strong presence in the local community,” says Julie Jessmon, the chain’s senior bakery category manager. “Lowes Foods loves giving entrepreneurs opportunities to expand their businesses, and we’re looking forward to seeing Chancey continue to grow.”

We get it: Exchanging old habits for new, health-promoting habits is hard. It’s especially difficult when we feel we aren’t seeing progress! We think it’s time to start looking at different measures of progress and success beyond just the scale. To keep track of progress outside of the scale, start by focusing on sustainable habits. What is one habit that you can easily do every day (or every week) for a long period of time that will help you reach your goals? It should be something simple and realistic like making your own breakfast every day, getting in movement three times a week, or going to the grocery store at least once a week. Focus on habits that are sustainable and, more importantly, enjoyable! Incorporating new habits into your day can be really exciting, especially when you are able to see improvements in your overall health.

The number on the scale is a number — that’s it. It’s your behaviors that define who you are — not the scale.

GJ: WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE PIECE? C: Frank Mansbach and Bike Walk Greenville came to me with an idea for a sculpture on the trail. Their original vision of a family enjoying the trail was adapted to show a child on a bike and an artistic vision of the trail itself. GJ: HOW LONG DID THE PIECE TAKE TO CREATE? C: The sculpting and bronzing took about six months. GJ: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF THE PIECE AND WHY? C: The patina (or color) of the sculpture transitions from shiny silver at the base to a dark grey blue at the top. This unique coloring is supposed to look as though the child is drawing her energy or spirit from the trail. Location: Along the Swamp Rabbit Trail near Sulpher Springs Rd.

Students from Greenville Early College and the Donaldson Career Center come together to build tiny shelter n story by JEANNIE PUTNAM | photo PROVIDED
Eighth grade students from Greenville Early College joined Donaldson Career Center building-construction students and worked together to build a tiny shelter for Greenville’s homeless population to use. “This project is actually the modification and extension of a project I did last year,” said Greenville Early College English teacher Rebekah Genovese. “Originally, I wanted to build a tiny house. I wanted my children to research homelessness and wanted them to build tiny houses. I went to Habitat and they said, ‘It was a great idea, but you have got to baby-step it first.’” Following Habitat’s advice, Genovese and her students performed research and built a scale model. At the end of the school year, she approached principal Marjon Ford and was given a budget of $1,000 to cover building the tiny shelter.
Our main goal is to just help people. We just know that someone will have a safer place to live.” -Alexis Mcghee, Early College student Before starting on the plans for the tiny shelter, Genovese said that she had her students do additional research and build other scale models. They consulted with students from the Fine Arts Center on how the shelter would need to be built and where they could put it. “At first it started out as a little homeless project, learning about the homeless,” said Early College student Alexis Mcghee. “Then we learned that we would be making a shelter for the

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Building bridges, bringing diversity to Clemson University n story by ANNA LEE | photo PROVIDED
Lee Gill’s first week at Clemson University was marked by student protests. In the days before he started as Clemson’s chief diversity officer in April 2016, more than 100 students had staged a sitin at Sikes Hall to demand that the school do more to address diversity and racism. The demonstration was in its fifth day when Gill arrived on campus. “They were out on the steps right in front of my office welcoming me,” he said with a laugh. Gill, a 20-year veteran of higher education, said he doesn’t admonish the students who participated. In a way, he admires them. He attended college during the tumult of the late 1960s and early 1970s, when student demonstrations were a “rite of passage,” Gill said. “We as students were all involved in that, and we thought we could change the world,” he said.
You can win the battle but lose the war. I want to win the war. -Lee Gill, chief diversity officer Clemson University
‘I WAS A TOTAL COUNTRY BOY’
Born and raised in the Midwest, Gill grew up on a farm in South Bend, Indiana, and spent an idyllic childhood hunting and fishing and swimming in his favorite swimming holes. “I was a total country boy,” he said. His parents were farmers who hailed from the South. His mother had an eighth-grade education; his father never finished elementary school. Yet Gill said they stressed education and made their son go to church “literally seven days a week.” In college, Gill studied sociology and political science at the University of Michigan before receiving his law degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law.
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 14
He worked as an affirmative action officer, then started his own consulting firm, where he advised organizations on how to diversify staff and build a more inclusive environment.
WHEN CLEMSON CAME CALLING
In 2015, Gill was serving as chief diversity officer at the University of Akron in Ohio when he received a call from Clemson. The school was conducting a search for its own diversity officer and wanted to know if Gill was interested. Gill, who said he knew relatively little about Clemson at the time, wasn’t sure. But as he learned more about the school and did his own research, Gill began to change his mind. He read about Harvey Gantt, and the role Clemson had in the Civil Rights Movement in South Carolina. “I realized the legal fight that it took for Harvey Gantt to enroll here, but that being said, there was no other institution besides Clemson that led the way, and that was very intriguing to me,” Gill said.
FIGHTING FOR STUDENTS
Gill accepted the job during a particularly tense time at Clemson. The previous year had been rocked by protests in which students as well as faculty members fought unsuccessfully to rename Tillman Hall. The building is named in honor of Benjamin Tillman, a Reconstruction-era South Carolina politician and wellknown white supremacist who had advocated for the lynching of blacks. While Gill understands why the building should be renamed, he believes that there are purer victories. “You can win the battle but lose the war. I want to win the war,” he said. Gill said he’d rather invest money on student scholarships, faculty diversity and bridge programs along the state’s Interstate 95 corridor. “I want to begin to touch our students as early as the fifth grade and build those pipelines to Clemson University,” Gill said. “So yes, you can fight over a building if you want to, but I want to fight for students.”

County Square project moves forward with city and county approval
Where would you send
n story and photo by EVAN PETER SMITH
Greenville County Council voted unanimously to approve the mechanism that will fund the $120 million County Square redevelopment project. The moment of the vote, which followed months of deliberation, was uncharacteristically brief and without comment from councilmembers. Council deliberated over the very same ordinance for a full half hour in its second reading, but the ordinance’s third and final reading passed by so quickly that you might’ve missed it had you not been paying attention.
total cost of the County Square redevelopment project
amount property to be redeveloped From the moment Councilwoman Liz Seman began reading the content of the ordinance to the moment the votes were cast unanimously in favor, a mere one minute and 10 seconds had passed. “Now, moving on to our next ordinance,” said Council Chairman Butch Kirven – and just like that, the largest redevelopment project in Greenville County history was given the go-ahead. Council had originally stalled the vote on the funding, which approves the county
to issue revenue bonds to pay for the project in an amount not exceeding $120 million – the presumed budget for the project. The holdup was due to the city’s rezoning of the County Square site, a matter over which the county and city had disputed for months. On Jan. 22, the city voted unanimously on the first of two readings for a new rezoning plan, which would cap buildings at 12 stories, despite county recommendations to push building height up to 18 stories. The city’s rezoning plan also addresses traffic mitigation and issues of historical neighborhood character being lost due to the adjacent development. County councilmembers had previously stated they wanted to wait until the city’s plans were set in stone before they went ahead to fund such a large project. While the city had not yet fully approved that new rezoning plan at the time of the county’s vote on Feb. 4 — the city eventually voted to approve the development plan one week later, on Feb. 10 — the county could not wait any longer, according to the county’s bond attorney, Brad Love. April 1 is the deadline by which the county must close on the $33 million purchase of property on Halton Road near Haywood Mall, the site of the proposed new county buildings. If the county misses that deadline, it would lose the $3.5 million down payment it made on the property and would be forced to enter a long-term lease agreement with the property owners. Given that it takes about 60 days to get bonds rated and sold, the county had to vote now and could not wait until its next council meeting.

HOME REAL ESTATE Discover a hidden oasis Transform your master bedroom and bathroom into a spa-like setting n story by JEANNIE PUTNAM
Having a spa-like master bedroom and bathroom can turn the homeowner’s living quarters into a den of tranquility and can also serve as an asset when selling a house. When making a spa-like master bedroom, follow the rule “less is more.” To begin with, remove the clutter by cleaning out closets and drawers and taking extra objects out of the room. If a television in the master bedroom is a must-have, explore furniture options such as an armoire, where it can be hidden when not in use. In addition to decluttering the room, use simple furniture and decorations without hard lines, intricate carvings or curves. If the homeowner already has ornate furnishings, use throw pillows and décor to balance out the busyness in furnishings. To help create a calming environment, consider utilizing soothing colors such as white, beige, pale sage or blues for walls and décor. Also, avoid allowing harsh sunlight into the room or bright overhead lighting by upgrading lighting fixtures. After decluttering and choosing soothing colors and lighting, add Egyptian cotton or bamboo linens to the bed and spa-like accents such as light-colored and scented candles to a nightstand or bookshelf or a plant such as a vase full of bamboo. For additional comfort, place a bench at the foot of the bed and get a plush bedside rug. Lastly, invest in an air purifier for the master bedroom to remove the allergens, dust and other impurities from the air and reduce respiratory issues. As with the master bedroom, one of the first steps to creating a spa-like master bathroom is a calming color palette with whites, beiges and muted colors. In addition to the calming colors, choose tile made of glass or rustic stone to help reduce humidity. In the shower, instead of using a standard shower head, install a rain shower head for wider waterflow and choices in water pressure or use multiple shower heads. Homeowners may want to create a spacious feeling in the shower by utilizing glass panels and doors rather than having a standard shower with a shower curtain. To add contrast to the calming colors around the bathroom, use darker colors on an accent wall in the shower. While having a spacious shower can add a spa-like feel, upgrading to an extra-large bathtub can add an extra level of relaxation to the master bath. Whether the homeowner chooses a jacuzzi, soaking or clawed bathtub, he or she will find comfort in one of these larger tubs at the end of a busy day. For increased comfort, the homeowner may want to install heated floors. By adding this feature, cold bathroom tile and the need for bathmats are gone. If space allows, try adding a stereo or flat-screen television to bring relaxing music to the master bathroom.

The best money-losing investment Phil Hughes ever made n story by EVAN PETER SMITH | photos PROVIDED
From a purely financial standpoint, Art Crossing was a bad investment. But Phil Hughes doesn’t mind at all. When Hughes came up with the idea for the row of art studios along the Reedy River across from the Wyche Pavilion, there wasn’t much reason for people to walk along that thin stretch of real estate. Hughes, who runs the development company Hughes Investments, wanted to create something that would draw foot traffic to that space. But nothing was there other than a parking garage. “Sure, we knew how to make the side of a parking garage pretty: plant ivy, design some nice lattices,” Hughes said. “But then we thought: Wouldn’t it be nice to take some of these parking spaces underneath this garage and just

SHANNON HOOVER’S LOW-END THEORY n story by VINCENT HARRIS | photo by DOVE LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY
Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising that, along with being a first-rate composer, instructor and bandleader, Shannon Hoover is a brilliant bass player. He’s been a fan of low-end sounds since he was a child. “I really took to music early,” Hoover says. “and the two instruments that I really got attached to were tuba and upright bass. So from then on, I was really into low brass and I definitely wanted to play bass. By middle school, when I was able to start in band, I played trombone and bass guitar at the same time.”
I love playing different kinds of music with different people. I love seeing what’s out there. -Shannon Hoovere, musician
Bass eventually won out over brass, though, because of the instrument’s elemental role in a band’s sound, whether that band played jazz or classical or rock music. “I just caught on to the bass and how powerful the bass is in an ensemble,” Hoover says. “You need the bass to outline the rest of the story. I still realize today how much learning how to play bass has influenced my compositions, my sense of harmony and time. It’s something that always stuck out. Even now when I hear music, the bass line stands out.” Hoover’s earliest musical exposure was to gospel music, and there are numerous bass players from that genre whom he cites as influences. As time went on, other players from the jazz world began to shape his style. “Some of the main players that showed me what you could do on the bass were Victor Wooten, Jaco Pastorius, John Patitucci,” he says. “Those were the main people, and of course the Motown guys like James Jamerson, who was from South Carolina.”
GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 14
Hoover also mentions a teacher, Ray McGee, who was with the Greenville Symphony Orchestra for years, as one of his most important mentors, which might be why Hoover teaches almost as much as he plays. As part of Upstate nonprofit the Greenville Jazz Collective, he works to create appreciation and awareness of jazz in the Upstate through performance and education, but that’s merely the most recent of Hoover’s many educational efforts. “The Jazz Collective is the newest educational thing I’ve been part of, but I’ve been teaching music for a lot of years,” he says. “I actually started teaching lessons in high school, when I was about 17, and I taught at USC Upstate for 10 years. I like giving back; I like to see other players come up, and music teaches you so much about yourself, and life. It’s healing.” Hoover says that his teaching philosophy is simple: Enjoy playing your instrument. “I like to make sure my students have fun with it,” he says, “even if they’re really serious about it. Because it’s not just a job to me. I still love to play. I still make time where I can play music and have fun. Much like the man we spoke with last week, drummer Tez Sherard, Hoover has a busy schedule. His most visible role is with the Greenville Jazz Collective, but he also plays his own shows, and he’s served as a sideman with a long list of local and national names, including Jeff Sipe, Branford Marsalis, Clarence Clemons, Col. Bruce Hampton, Derek Trucks and many more. “People joke that I play with everybody,” he says, “but I love playing different kinds of music with different people. I love seeing what’s out there. I’ve learned a lot doing things with other bands just by being out there, like how to channel your energy or get your practice routine together. And all of these things that I learn help me to focus on my own projects.”

Herring Chamber Ensemble lends different flavor to Handel's 'Messiah' PAUL HYDE Contributor
A SWEET NOTE
FOR YOUR VALENTINE
n photo by DEEN VAN MEER
SPECIAL PERFORMANCE OUTSIDE OF SAN FRANCISCO! MARCH 9
“MUSIC OF THEN AND NOW” The Herring Chamber Ensemble circles back to one of the most popular works in the choral repertoire for its winter concert: “Messiah” by George Frideric Handel. The ensemble will spotlight the 35-minute Part III of “Messiah” at its 3 p.m. performance on Sunday, Feb. 23 in Daniel Chapel at Furman University. The 24-voice group is part of the larger Greenville Chorale, which featured Parts I and II of Handel’s choral masterwork in December 2018. “This seemed a fine opportunity to present the rest of this work and also give it a different flavor with the smaller ensemble,” said Bing Vick, artistic director and conductor of the ensemble.
I thought it would make an interesting program to combine an old baroque work by Handel with contemporary music.” -Bing Vick, artistic director and conductor, Herring Chamber Ensemble The Herring Chamber Ensemble is celebrated for its warm, beautiful sound and polished musicality. A 12-member chamber orchestra will accompany the vocal ensemble, providing a glimpse of the way the work might have been performed in Handel’s time. Nancy Smith, the ensemble’s piano accompanist, will be featured on organ.
» SUNDAY, FEB. 23 | 3PM » DANIEL CHAPEL » FURMAN UNIVERSITY » $35 PEACECENTER.ORG The first half of the ensemble’s program, meanwhile, will offer shorter contemporary works, including pieces by two Greenville-based composers: Dan Forrest and Mark Kilstofte. “I thought it would make an interesting program to combine an old baroque work by Handel with contemporary music,” Vick said. Also on the program is John Tavener’s “Song for Athene,” which gained notice after it was performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in September 1997. Tavener’s haunting “Svyati” (“O Holy One”) will spotlight guest cellist Yuri Leonovich. Two pieces by Eric Whitaker, one of the most popular of contemporary choral composers, will also be featured. “I think we’ll leave everyone with a smile on their face,” Vick said. “The ensemble sounds terrific. The singers are all excellent musicians and they really rise to any challenge. It should be a great concert.” The Herring Chamber Ensemble, sponsored by Sarah and Gordon Herring, was founded by Vick in 1997.

where we're EATING
It's an 8-minute walk from Fireforge to Bon Secours Arena
FIREFORGE CRAFTED BEER 311 E WASHINGTON ST., GREENVILLE These homegrown beer stars at 311 East Washington St. have quietly rolled out more food options for a full-on dinner experience within walking distance of Bon Secours. Additionally, because Taco Tuesday is an event around here, mobile food operator Comal 864 will be serving up tacos, quesadillas and nachos at the brewery. Everyone wins. And considering alcoholic beverage prices are typically more expensive at arenas, drinking before the show at dinner is a cheaper alternative. Thus, the walking distance comes in handy.
FIREFORGE CRAFTED BEER IS A COZY WAREHOUSE WITH 15 HOUSE-BREWED BEERS ON TAP
RECOMMENDED DISHES: Gooey Greatness Grilled Cheese
muenster, havarti, and smoked gouda, local green apples, and house-pickled red onion on sourdough bread with housemade red pepper jelly for dipping
“Cheesecake of the week”
made in-house by Brian’s mom, Nancy
FROM COMAL 864: Taco de el pastor Chorizo nachos
what we're SEEING DANCING WITH THE STARS: LIVE!
The “Dancing With The Stars: Live!” show allows people the chance to see some of the most skillful dancers in the business without the sometimes awkward celebrities with two left feet getting in the way. The touring version of the hit TV show features popular pros like Brandon Armstrong, Lindsay Arnold, Alan Bersten, Witney Carson, Val Chmerkovskiy and more, doing classic old-school dances like the tango or the cha-cha, reenacting fan-favorite routines from the show’s 28-season run and throwing in some newly-choreographed dances that you can only see live. You don’t have to worry about snarky judges or fan votes; at Bon Secours Wellness Arena, the dancers are the stars.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH
sojourning through history with art n story by JOHN JETER | photos PROVIDED

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // FEBRUARY 14
Spend an hour with Chotsani Elaine Dean and you travel through 400 years of history and art. She leads you into a sprawling discussion of her ceramics and quilts, raw cotton she grows, her work at a tea plantation and in studios and art galleries and in her classrooms. “You can take those materials that are so disparate and come from different parts of the world or different strata of the Earth,” she says of her clays and textiles, “and it becomes something that’s not just functional but visual. It can give you a voice in a way you might not expect.” A Malawian name meaning “take away,” Chotsani takes from myriad sources and pours it back into her art and pedagogy, which she practices primarily at Anderson University’s South Carolina School of the Arts; she has been assistant professor of art, ceramics and sculpture there since 2014. During a lengthy Black History Month interview, the 43-year-old artist-professor-student discusses the likes of Sojourner Truth, the escaped slave who grew up speaking Dutch; the abstract expressionist painter Helen Frankenthaler; and Matisse. She recalls the nine months she spent as a Fulbright Scholar on a tea plantation in India in 2012-13. She talks about the history of her hometown. Dean grew up in New Haven, Connecticut. That’s where the Dutch, one of Europe’s leading slave-trading nations then, established a commercial settlement they named Huys de Hope (House of Hope) just 14 years after enslaved African Americans first arrived on America’s shores. “It’s about coalescing the past, the present and things about the future,” she says of her art. “I’m always positioning myself in terms of what I’m seeing.” Her pieces illuminate centuries’ worth of history, generally focusing on commodities, their provenance and distribution. Take, for instance, a ceramic pot called “Memory Basket — ‘transatlantic passage, planted, picked, transformed, sold, traded, sewed, stitched.’” Or a porcelain stoneware vessel that features Sea Island cotton: “from seed to hand, mine.” Last year, she wanted to establish an artisanal “trading post” of her own, so along with four other multimedia artists, she opened an exhibition in
Minneapolis titled “Trading Post: Exchange and Sojourn.” “The many Dutch trading posts and Dutch participation in the transatlantic slave trade to the Abolitionist movement are significant to my communal ancestry as an African American, raised in New England, now residing in the South,” her website says. “Another part of the Trading Post,” she says, “is about trying to unpack this idea of what it means to trade with someone because as soon as you talk about trade, the first thing you talk about is value.”
It’s about coalescing the past, the present and things about the future. -Chotsani Dean, artist
Her works have appeared in galleries from Montana to India and belong in private collections from Seoul, South Korea, to New York. Through Feb. 20, the University of South Carolina’s School of Art and Design played host to a solo exhibition, “Trading Post: Huys de Hope.” Peter Chametzky, a USC art history professor, sat on the committee that selected Dean for a January residency. “When you start talking about the process of making a piece, say, in ceramics, there’s a lot of emotion involved in that,” he says, noting that during Dean’s pre-exhibition lecture, “she really filled us in about her intellectual and emotional background, different experiences she’s had and how that all is wrapped up in these objects she makes.” He goes on to cite metaphorical connections he sees between the potter’s wheel, which spins like the Earth, whence her material comes, and her artist’s hands, which shape works that also reflect the manual labor of enslaved peoples. “That’s all really a part of the piece,” he says. “It’s very process-oriented, and I think her work communicates that very well. “
