Why you are seeing poppies in Greenville in 2018 By Teresa Slack
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row” Those two lines are the start of what was one of the most famous poems of the first half of the 20th century. It was “In Flanders Fields,” by John McCrae, a Canadian physician turned lieutenant colonel who found himself not saving a life, but burying the body of a young soldier in May 1915. Looking across the war-torn field, he was inspired by the hundreds of poppies adorning the graves of the fallen soldiers. McCrae’s words were tragic and beautiful and forgotten, except to historians or people with extremely long memories. There is a group trying to change that. It is called Remember Old Hickory, and our goal is to honor the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. But why now, and why Greenville? The 30th Infantry Division broke the Hindenburg line in 1918, which led to the end of World War I. The Old Hickory Division, as the 30th was known, trained at Camp Sevier in Greenville and included hundreds of local soldiers as well as men from the rest of South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. While Camp Sevier was only part of Greenville for less than two years, it has created a lasting impact on our community. The men who served in the Old Hickory came back home and built Greenville during its first great boom of the 1920s. They were there when the Poinsett Hotel was built. They worked in the mills that shaped our communities. They toiled on farms that kept families fed. And they never forgot what they saw in World War I. Many fallen soldiers were buried in this same area. Soon after burial, the poppies would push through the ground and adorn the graves of the hundreds of soldiers laid to rest. That is what inspired McCrae’s writings. The inspiration drawn from this resilient flower did not stop there. On Nov. 9, 1918, as the war was coming to an end, an American teacher named Moina Michael read the poem and pledged to always wear a red poppy in remembrance. She responded by writing a poem, “We Shall Keep the Faith,” proclaiming that she would make sure that the sacrifices of these soldiers were never forgotten. After a group asked her if they could purchase a poppy, she realized that selling these poppies could be a way to raise money for those who suffered in the war. Soon nicknamed the “Poppy Lady,” Michael joined forces with Madame Anna Guèrin, who became known as the “French Poppy Lady.” They worked together for many years, promoting the poppy in the United States and Europe as a symbol of remembrance for those who fought. In 1921, Guerin reached out to Field Marshal Earl Haig, founder and president of The British Legion, who ordered 9 million poppies, to be sold on Armistice Day, Nov. 11. This event became known as the first Poppy Appeal, with proceeds going to aid veterans in Europe.
The Journal welcomes letters to the editor and guest columns on timely public issues. Letters should include name, city, phone number and email address for verification purposes and should not exceed 300 words. Columns should include a photo and short bio of the author and should not exceed 600 words. Writers should demonstrate relevant expertise and make balanced, factbased arguments.
As poppies begin to appear all over Greenville in the next few months … remember to honor the extremely important part these brave men played in bringing World War I to an end. Because many people believed that WWI was the “War to End All Wars,” Nov. 11 was originally named Armistice Day. Several wars later, our world celebrates this day as Veterans Day. In Europe, however, this day is still celebrated with poppy-blanketed castles and hillsides, in remembrance of those who fought bravely, suffered, and died in all wars. Greenville is adopting this tradition to honor the brave soldiers of Camp Sevier. This campaign is sponsored by the City of Greenville, Greenville County, and Upstate Warrior Solution. As poppies begin to appear all over Greenville in the next few months — this time as metal pins worn by local law enforcement officers, elected officials, and everyone else — remember to honor the extremely important part these brave men played in bringing World War I to an end. And since I started with McCrae, let me end with how he ended his poem all those years ago:

OPINION Views from your community
Our government does work, but not like it should By Guy Furay For the past two years, I have been involved in a personal experiment of sorts to see what is actually is happening in government at the state and federal level. Part of this was prompted by what I do for a career — I own an independent insurance agency specializing in health insurance. With this background, we are literally at ground zero in the debate about health care in the United States. If you have a pulse, you know this industry has been in a state of almost constant flux. Many of my clients and partners come to me looking for answers. So many questions, that I began to run out of answers, so I wanted to go to the source. I’ve traveled to Washington, D.C., and met with leaders of both parties in the House and Senate, including the entire South Carolina delegation individually as well as dozens of national leaders including Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Senator Chris Coons, DDel. During these meetings, I have tried to focus my efforts on what is working, what is broken, why it is broken, and how we could fix it. Further, I was personally invited by Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., to participate on a select panel of about 10 leaders here in the Upstate who are on the frontlines of the efforts to fix health care. This panel included the CEOs of several of the major hospitals in the Upstate. I have been to Columbia numerous times, most recently with my Leadership Greer class. My conclusion after all of these meetings is that our health care system is complicated and it will take a cooperative effort from across the entire spectrum to fix it. While I went on these trips to gain a better understanding of our broken health care system and to be a part of the solution to fix it, I discovered something much more valuable. Our government does work, but not like it should be working. Why is that? Why is the system not working? To be blunt, the system doesn’t work because our government is controlled by two political parties that are separating more and more each second on their ideological bases. We are seeing people being elected who don’t care about governing, just scoring points for their side. This isn’t a new thing, but the chasm is growing because neither side’s leadership wants to reach across the “aisle” on compromise. They are forgetting that the aisle connecting them is the American people. The people of South Carolina. They treat the people of America like robots who are programmed to only vote one way and one way only. I often hear people complain that too few people actually vote. That is a byproduct of a rigged system. Neither party reaches out to the middle during the primaries. They seek their “hardcore” supporters and fill them with disinformation. And when it comes time for a general election, people in the middle are often left voting for the lesser of two evils. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it happens enough that Americans should be angry. Not frightened.
While I went on these trips to gain a better understanding of our broken health care system and to be a part of the solution to fix it, I discovered something much more valuable. They need to get angry. They are not being represented by people who actually want to serve them. And yet, work gets done the vast majority of the time because there are people being elected who actually care about the people that didn’t push a button for them on some random November day. They are able to find compromises and put together deals. But many of them are being driven out with wild calls that don’t represent the “party.” Think about that. Most of the anger comes from people rallying for the party — not for the people. Is there a better way? We often hear about people launching third-party campaigns, but again the two parties in power are quick to say that is throwing a vote away or, in an effort to shock and terrify, by voting third party, they are giving the opposition party an election win. But of course, the parties are going to say that. They don’t want the 44 percent of people who don’t identify as Republican or Democrat to have an option outside of them. They like the system the way it is because it works best for them. Not the people. To quote Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there ‘is’ such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.” Guy Furay is the owner of the Insurance Source, an independent brokerage specializing in health, life, disability, and dental insurance. The Insurance Source has helped others protect what matters most since 2005 and is located in Greer. Learn more at www.theinsurancesourcesc.com

GREENVILLE COUNTY SET TO OPEN NEW LIBRARY NEAR WOODRUFF ROAD WORDS BY ANDREW MOORE A new library in Greenville County is set to open this month. The Greenville County Library System announced last week that it plans to hold a grand-opening celebration for its Five Forks Branch from 2-6 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. The 28,000-square-foot library, which is located at the intersection of Woodruff Road and Sunnydale Drive in Simpsonville, was scheduled to open in September, but construction was delayed when officials had to negotiate a new route for the building’s sewer line, according to Beverly James, executive director of the Greenville County Library System. The new library features a large active-learning area for children with an adjacent porch for hands-on play and social skill development, according to James. It also features a quiet reading room, public computer area, dedicated space for teens, multipurpose collaboration space, a driveup window for picking up reserved materials, and more. “The larger size of this new branch gives us the opportunity to offer features the public has asked for that we have

CITY IDENTIFIES HUNDREDS MORE HISTORIC STRUCTURES WORDS BY CINDY LANDRUM | PHOTOS BY WILL CROOKS Ten individual properties and Cleveland Park were identified in a recently completed historic resources survey by the city of Greenville as eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The city had hired a consultant, WLA Studio, to identify historically significant properties citywide, especially in the West End, Village of West Greenville, the Sullivan community, the Cleveland Park area, Nicholtown, North Main, Augusta Road, Sherwood Forest, and Parkins Mill. The consultants toured the nine focus areas of the city on foot last summer looking for properties built before 1975 that could qualify as historic properties based on architectural style, features, and historic significance such as who lived there or events that happened there. The survey, which was the third the city has conducted since 1981, does not automatically list a property on a national or local historic register, but it can be the first step. Historic designation of any property the consultant deemed eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places requires a separate public process. Properties that are listed in the National Register are eligible for preservation tax credits and grants. Cities may also adopt historic preservation zoning for properties of historic or architectural significance. In those historic preservation districts, property owners must receive approval before they can build, demolish, or alter properties. Greenville currently has seven historic districts. WLA Studio identified four potential local historic overlay districts — the Woodfin area off Augusta Street, the Stone Academy area, the area near Buist Circle that includes the Peace House and the Temple of Israel, and the Eastover district in Nicholtown. Woodfin is in the greater Sullivan neighborhood and represents early 20th-century construction. The 200 block
is representative of one of the earliest residential development plans. It is predominantly bungalow and frame houses with Craftsman stylistic elements. The Stone area includes houses built in the 1930s and 1940s in the English Vernacular style and Craftsman styles near Stone Academy. Buist Circle, which is in the Stone Academy neighborhood, was built in 1925 as a residential development and includes the B.H. Peace House and the Temple of Israel. The neighborhood may also contain one of the oldest structures in Greenville, the Elias Earle House, which was moved and significantly altered by former owners. The earliest homes in the neighborhood are in the Colonial Revivalist style, while later homes are in minimal traditionalist. The Eastover district is in the Nicholtown neighborhood, and G.B. Lee built the subdivision’s earliest houses of stone along Beechwood Avenue and Arden Street. The district is a collection of Craftsman-style bungalows, many of which retain original materials and design qualities. Ginny Stroud, the city’s community development administrator, said 1,600 properties were surveyed. She said the city would update its protected structures list.

Stroud said about 340 properties will be added to the approximately 700 already on the protected structures list. The city will notify National Register-eligible property owners.

WE ARE GHS, AND WE ARE
NOT FOR SALE! You’ve probably heard about a small group of state legislators who think they can take control of Greenville Health System and sell it to the highest bidder even if that’s an out-of-state for-profit company whose only motivation is making money. They must think GHS is a retail business, with inventory that can be appraised and sold. Well it’s not.
GHS is a collection of physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses and thousands of others who treat the sick and injured of our community. We are part of a locally led not-for-profit system that has provided services to generations of families in Greenville, regardless of their ability to pay.
Those who think they own GHS do not speak for us. We are more than buildings and machines, and we resent being treated as such.
WE ARE THE HEART AND SOUL OF GHS, AND WE ARE NOT FOR SALE.

PARKS ARE BIG WINNERS AGAIN IN CITY’S PROPOSED CAPITAL PROJECTS BUDGET CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
Parks — from the city’s new signature park west of downtown to neighborhood parks scattered throughout the city to the venerable Cleveland Park — would be the big winners in Greenville’s proposed capital improvement plan for next year. Right now, parks and recreation will get nearly $5.4 million in capital improvement project money, the vast majority of that going toward the second phase of the signature City Park, a Laurens Road bridge for the Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail, and greenways and trail projects. The Greenville City Council is expected to approve the capital improvement project budget in late May. The capital budget includes $1.5 million for a Laurens Road Swamp Rabbit Trail bridge and another $1 million for greenways and trails. The capital budget did not specify which trail would be done, but Councilwoman Amy Ryberg Doyle said it could be the Laurel Creek trail, which would give residents of the apartment complexes near Haywood Mall and the Fluor campus access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The city is studying the feasibility of the just-under-1-mile-long trail now. The route, which would use existing sewer easements, would have up to three street crossings and up to three pedestrian bridges. Neighborhood parks would get some money, too, although not nearly as much as they did last year. The 2018-19 capital plan calls for $492,675 to be spent on neighborhood parks, down from $2.04 million from the current year. Fifty-eight percent of city residents live within a half-mile of a park or community center. In District 1, which encompasses the North Main and East North Street area, 67 percent of residents are within a halfmile of a park. That falls to 42 percent in District 4, a more industrial and commercial part of the city that includes Gower Park, Legacy Park at Hollingsworth, and the Wenwood Soccer Complex.
The city’s parks and recreation department evaluated the city’s 34 neighborhood parks in 2017 and found a laundry list of needs — from accessibility issues to fields that needed new fencing, tennis and basketball courts that needed resurfacing, restrooms that needed major repair, and playground equipment that had gotten to the end of its useful life. Most of the neighborhood parks projects on the list wouldn’t rise to capital improvement project status — defined by the city as those costing $100,000 or more — by themselves but they do collectively. The capital plan also includes the second $2 million earmark for Phase 2 of the new City Park, which gets $2 million in CIP funds under the proposal. The City Council approved a resolution last year signaling its intent to issue revenue bonds to pay for components of the park eligible for tourism-related funding, provided the annual debt is no greater than $2 million per year for 20 years. City Park is expected to transform downtown Greenville’s western flank, much like Falls Park and subsequent projects transformed the West End. The park has already been a catalyst for commercial and residential development even though groundbreaking likely won’t occur until spring 2018. The CIP also includes $1 million each for new sidewalks and street resurfacing, sidewalks in the Hampton Avenue bridge area, money for Fluor Field stadium improvements and maintenance, money for the city’s commercial corridors, and stabilization of the riverbank in Cleveland Park. But there were plenty of projects that weren’t included in the draft presented to the Council by City Manager John Castile and the city’s Office of Budget and Management. Those included implementation of the nowunderway Cleveland Park master plan, West End Market plaza renovations, streetscaping for Augusta Street and Laurens Road, a cultural corridor urban trail linking Heritage Green to Main Street, more parking in the Village of West Greenville, a Greenville Transit Authority maintenance facility, and an expansion of the Spring Street parking garage.

What could an ice cream-loving pig and a sweater-wearing dog possibly have in common? For starters, they both live in Greenville. But more importantly, they each command a legion of fans on Instagram.
Photos by Will Crooks
BEHIND THE SHOT
Our trick for getting the perfect Pickle pic? Peanut butter and raisins just outside the frame!
Pickle and Professor Sprout FOLLOWERS: 169K ON INSTAGRAM USERNAME: @PICKLE.THE.PIG Pickle the Pig’s Instagram was first started by popular demand. Owner Max DiNatale was asked by his friends to post more photos of Pickle on Instagram, but he never expected it would gain this kind of following. With more than 169,000 followers, Pickle has reached a very high level of Instagram fame. DiNatale says that people recognize Pickle when he’s in public and often ask to share photos and videos of him from their own page. “It grew slowly into me actually really enjoying it. I didn’t have a goal in mind because it was never a business plan to me,” DiNatale says. “Now there are brands that want him to promote stuff and things like that.” Pickle is a 3-year-old miniature potbelly pig that weighs around 75 pounds, and his new little brother, Professor Sprout, is only 4 months old but will grow to be around the same size. “They are so smart. They are as smart as a 3-year-old human. That’s one of the biggest things,” DiNatale says while explaining how pigs are different from other pets. “But they like attention just like a dog would. If you’re on the couch, they want to be on the couch. If you’re eating, they want to be eating. They want to be wherever you are. They go for walks, too.”
“If you’re on the couch, they want to be on the couch. If you’re eating, they want to be eating. They want to be wherever you are. They go for walks, too.” -Max DiNatale, owner of Pickle the Pig and Professor Sprout DiNatale purchased both Pickle and Professor Sprout from a farm in Florida after doing loads of research to make sure he was prepared to care for the uncommon pets. Many people see the baby mini pigs on Facebook or YouTube and decide they want one without doing their research, and therefore a lot of pigs end up being put up for adoption or given away. DiNatale was not so different in that he thought the pigs were unusual and cute, but he did the legwork to make sure that he was prepared for Pickle. DiNatale explains, “There is no such thing as a mini pig that stays 10 pounds, and so many people don’t do their research before getting a pig. While there’s nothing wrong with having a 600-pound pig in your home, that’s not what most people want, and they end up giving them away. You have to do your research.”
DiNatale loves keeping up with the Instagram page, though he never expected that it would take up so much of his time. “I take pictures and videos of them all the time anyway,” he says, “but it takes more time than I thought it would. People message his [Pickle’s] account all the time with questions or just saying they are cute or whatnot. I wouldn’t change it, and I love doing it because it makes other people happy. People have messaged me the craziest things. They will tell me someone died in their family or was diagnosed with a disease and they came across Pickle and Sprout and it brightens their day. That makes it worth doing for me even more.” —SARA PEARCE
Oliver Hemsworth FOLLOWERS: 11.9K ON INSTAGRAM USERNAME: @OLIVERHEMSWORTH Oliver Hemsworth is a local Greenville dog celebrity due to his Instagram presence. Owner Ashton Brye had planned on owning a female Australian Labradoodle named Olive, but when a litter of all-male puppies arrived, she quickly adjusted the name from Olive to Oliver, and the rest is history. Brye always knew she wanted to make an Instagram for her pup but didn’t think it would grow so quickly. “He’s

prairie dog has since experienced numerous brushes with fame. “He’s been a neighborhood attraction since day one,” Brinn said. “I actually had a group of kids stop by my house several weekends ago and play with him. It was so funny to watch Chipper, because he was just loving all the attention.” According to Brinn, Chipper is a black-tailed prairie dog, one of the five prairie dog species in North America. Naturally found in the Great Plains region between Canada and Mexico in the United States, prairie dogs live in large colonies in the grasslands. “Socialization is really important for them,” Brinn said. “Prairie dogs expect everyone within their community to have specific jobs, so I always feel sort of guilty that I might not be living up to Chipper’s expectations as a prairie dog.” Chipper, however, is right at home with Brinn and her other pets, including her two 13-year-old Labrador retrievers, Maggie and Ryan, and her cat, Cara. “He includes everyone in the family,” Brinn said. “But he really likes to sit with Maggie at the front door and watch people walk by. Her barking doesn’t really bother him anymore.”
“He probably has as good of a life as most children.” -Ashton Brye, owner of Oliver Hemsworth
11,900 FOLLOWERS just a really pretty dog, and he loves being in front of the camera and being the center of attention,” she says. Brye wanted somewhere to share all of her photos of Oliver, and a dedicated Instagram for him was the perfect outlet. His last name was inspired by none other than the Australian actor Chris Hemsworth and Brye’s love for the “Thor” movies. Oliver, who is 2 years old, has a big personality, and that is part of why his social media presence has taken off. “He is so dopey. He feels like the size of a bear, but he is always falling over himself. He’s not dumb, but he’s kind of dumb,” Brye says with a laugh. “He is a gigantic baby. I have to pick him up to get in the car, every single time. And he loves to be held like a baby and talked to. He probably has as good of a life as most children.” Brye explains that Oliver is very smart (even when he’s kind of dumb), and he knows what she means. “His signature favorite thing to do is dart,” she says. “He’ll see me telling him not to run, and he’ll do it anyway. It’s his favorite.” Some of Oliver’s following has come from being shared by very popular Instagram accounts, like @dogsofinstagram. Brye explains that people frequently approach her when she is walking Oliver out and about to ask, “Is this Oliver?” She is often taken aback that people actually recognize her dog, and she is happy that he makes other people happy. Brye has been working on training Oliver to be a therapy dog, which can take several months. She wants to make sure he will actually pass the test when the time comes, because most of it pertains to mastering basic obedience and being able to stay calm around hospital equipment and all kinds of different people and situations. “We are working on his certification now,” Bryce says. “We’re hoping that he will work mainly with children in hospitals, but he’ll be able to do any kind of therapy. We’ve been training for quite a while. He’s getting there.”

Brye enjoys knowing that Oliver brings happiness to so many people through Instagram, and she is excited that his sweet nature will continue to help others once he gains his certification as a therapy dog. —SARA PEARCE
HHRising StarHH Chipper the Prairie Dog A three-legged prairie dog became a viral sensation earlier this year after escaping in a North Main neighborhood. Now he may just become one of Greenville’s newest social media celebrities. His name is Chipper. In January, Greenville resident Allison Cook agreed to watch after Chipper for her friend, Michele Brinn, who was traveling out of the country at the time. But little did she know she was harboring a tiny escape artist. Upon returning from work one afternoon, Cook discovered that Chipper was missing from his cage. She quickly assembled a search party and began scanning nearby yards. Meanwhile, neighbors spread the word about Chipper’s escape on NextDoor and other social media sites. And when local news outlets Fox Carolina and WYFF 4 found out about the escape, they plastered Chipper’s face on the front page of their websites. Chipper, however, decided to return on his own terms. After searching outside for several hours, Cook and others briefly entered Brinn’s home but found no signs of the three-legged escapee. Luckily, when they returned outside, they found him waiting at the front door. “My phone was off while I was in Cuba, so I had no idea about the escape until I landed in Charlotte a few days later,” Brinn said. “But I wasn’t too surprised when I found out about it. Chipper’s always been sort of curious. And he’s escaped once before. My neighbor actually found him on our front sidewalk last year.” Brinn adopted Chipper last year from Izzie’s Pond, a Simpsonville-based wildlife sanctuary. The 2-year-old

In fact, Chipper sometimes pitches in and lets out an occasional bark, which is more like a little chirp, according to Brinn. His chirp is also a signal that his patience is wearing thin. “He usually barks before biting, so I’d say he’s more predictable than my cat,” Brinn said. “But he rarely gets cranky. It just happens sometimes when I’m holding him and he wants to play.” On the whole, Chipper is pretty relaxed. The threelegged prairie dog spends most of his days staring out the window from his cage or roaming around Brinn’s home. He also enjoys snacking, according to Brinn. Chipper’s diet mostly consists of specially ordered pellets, which include
16 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 03.16.2018 GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM
large amounts of timothy hay. But he also snacks on cilantro, kale, almonds, corn, sweet potatoes, and the occasional dandelion from Brinn’s yard. Brinn said she’s conducted hours of online research, joined numerous Facebook groups, and met with international prairie dog consultant Dr. Gena Seaberg to learn more about Chipper’s care routine. “It was a big learning curve at first, but it was worth it,” she said.
“I always feel sort of guilty that I might not be living up to Chipper’s expectations as a prairie dog.” -Michele Brinn, owner of Chipper the prairie dog
Prairie dogs, however, may not be ideal pets for some people, according to Brinn. “Chipper likes to throw hay and other stuff out of this cage, so I wouldn’t recommend getting a prairie dog if you’re obsessive about keeping your place clean,” she said. “And they will chew on just about anything that’s made out of wood. That’s why I have to keep Chipper in his cage when I’m at work.” She added that prairie dogs, however, are fairly low maintenance and almost never require vet visits. And their chubby cheeks almost always win over the social media crowd. Last year, for instance, two sisters who attend Texas A&M University launched an Instagram account for their prairie dogs, Bing and Swarley. The account (@prairiedogpack) has since gained over 90,000 followers. Brinn said she might launch an account for Chipper later this year. “I’m not fully committing to anything right now, because I don’t understand Instagram as well as the other social media sites,” she said. “It’s really just a matter of me figuring everything out and finding the time to run the account.” —ANDREW MOORE

Volunteer for the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation By Macy Covington
When 862 men and women made a commitment to volunteer at the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation in 2017, the first question from most of the volunteers’ friends and families may have revolved around any unique opportunities garnered to get up close to the celebrity-fueled action. After all, with high-profile positions like walking scorers and course marshals manned by dedicated volunteers, it is a logical thing to wonder. But for many who dedicated countless hours on the courses and in the clubhouses, there was a much greater and nobler motivation. For 17 years, the BMW Charity Pro-Am has not only brought the fastest-rising players of the PGA and your favorite stars of the field, stage, and screen to the Upstate — it has also served to support dozens of charities who have made an almost immeasurable impact on the lives of children, seniors, veterans, and thousands more. This year will be no exception. In 2018, the tournament has elected to shine the spotlight on four worthwhile organizations that are changing the lives of our fellow community members: Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System, Cliffs Residents Outreach, Mobile Meals of Spartanburg, and Upstate SC STEM Collaborative. Caring for more than 330,000 infants, children, and adolescents each year, the doctors, nurses, and staff at Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System have dedicated their talents to what we all hold most precious — the lives of our children. In addition to meeting the physical needs of little ones, the hospital works to meet emotional needs as well. From expert care for critically ill newborns to a facility dog program aiding children and adolescents in medical rehabilitation and psychiatric programs, Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System is healing and nurturing our future. Cliffs Residents Outreach’s mission is simply put but greatly vast: enabling Upstate children to succeed. The organization focuses on literacy, nutrition, and mentoring kids across Greenville, Pickens, and Oconee counties. Volunteerism was paramount to the organization’s ability to change the lives of children last year, with 18,000 hours dedicated to assisting 5,634 kids. Programs supported by Cliffs Residents Outreach include funding before and after-school programs, a summer reading camp, and subsidies for eyeglasses, hearing aids, and dental appointments not covered by Medicaid or insurance. Mobile Meals of Spartanburg “glorifies God by providing nutritious meals, services, and fellowship to the

frail and homebound citizens of Spartanburg County.” Each weekday, volunteers deliver meals to residents not able to prepare food for themselves due to physical or emotional limitations. Proving especially impactful to those suffering from depression or loneliness, the ministry of Mobile Meals touches the lives of 1,500 recipients each year. Mobile Meals also partners with similar organizations to support 550 hunger-feeding agencies in 19 counties. Upstate SC STEM Collaborative works to promote STEM with an ultimate goal of elevating the region’s economic success by supporting ongoing workforce development programs and launching new STEM initiatives. Those initiatives include bridging the opportunity gap by providing STEM teacher resources and education to underserved areas across the Upstate and promoting awareness and support for STEM career paths. Upstate SC STEM Collaborative knows that the future economic success of the region and the stability of its residents depends on present-day action. These charities and the dozens of other local philanthropies who will benefit from tickets sales and a Birdies for Charities fundraising arm depend on you. When you choose to donate your time, you are not only gaining a tale to tell of an unforgettable day at the tournament; you are also showing support to a child who is battling the odds at Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System or proving that you care about the lit-
eracy of Upstate kids through the Cliffs Residents Outreach. When you volunteer, you are telling everyone that you think the nurturing and nutritional services provided by Mobile Meals are important and that the brighter future possible through the Upstate SC STEM Collaborative is vital, too. To sign up to be a volunteer and select the featured charity dearest to you, visit BMWCharityGolf.com. There you can also learn about the Birdies for Charities initiative that will help dozens of other worthwhile local philanthropies as well. Give your time. Give your heart. Get a lot back in return.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES A Q&A with United Way of Greenville County President Meghan Barp WORDS BY SARA PEARCE | PHOTO BY WILL CROOKS Meghan Barp is no stranger to the United Way. Nearly the last decade of her career was spent working in several positions at the Greater Twin Cities United Way in Minneapolis/St. Paul. However, she is new to Greenville. As the new president of United Way of Greenville County, Barp is ready to fully immerse herself in all aspects of the Greenville community, to understand it, and to use her experience and passion for helping others to make it a better place.
What are some of the lessons you learned from your time at Greater Twin Cities United Way that will help you in this position? I was fortunate enough to be at Greater Twin Cities United Way for close to nine years and had a variety of roles there. I think some of my big lessons when I reflect on that time is that people love to be connected to a great mission
and love to be connected to meaning and the community in a really profound way. That’s something that gave me a lot of energy in my job — that individuals within companies or individuals within the community really like to get their arms around what they’re investing in. That is something that I’ve definitely brought with me here to United Way of Greenville County, of how do we inspire and activate this incredible community to continue to give to ensure that every single person in Greenville County has the opportunity to thrive.
What are your short-term and long-term goals for United Way of Greenville County? So my short term goals are getting to know this incredible community, getting to know the team here at United Way of Greenville County, [and] getting to know the broader community, our nonprofit partners, and our corporate partners. Greenville County is such a special place, and I knew that before I moved here, but I am definitely feeling that now that I’ve moved here, just how incredible it is. So short-term goal is to really get my arms around the community and getting to know folks. That’s how I’ve been spending my time out and about, and internally here with the team as well. I think longer term the world around us is changing rapidly. We know that nationally, and we know that locally, and there’s been such tremendous growth here in Greenville County. The role that United Way of Greenville County plays is to really connect the dots for our companies, for our civic leaders, for our nonprofits, for individuals around and making sure that Greenville is a great place for everyone to live. So as we think about growth — which is fantastic, we love seeing that ... we
also want to make sure we are employing people. I want to make sure everyone has access to affordable housing. We want to make sure education is as best as it can be. We want to make sure that people have transportation to get to their job or their homes so that this is a great place for everyone to live. So that’s really my focus long term, is how do we continue to be a key leader and convener around the most pressing issues in our community. So, yes, it’s a fantastic community — I love that. There’s still a lot of work to do in terms of making it a great place for everyone to live.
What are some of the challenges that you think your organization and Greenville face right now? I think with the incredible growth we’re seeing in Greenville and Greenville County, our biggest opportunity is to ensure that we have affordable housing, transportation, [and] we have livablewage jobs so that people can pay for all those necessities for their families so that they can have a quality of life here that they deserve. It’s really about connecting the dots on all those big issues while enjoying this incredible growth and the beautiful city and county that we have. One of the things that I love about Greenville, in particular, is that there has been visionary leadership here to make it the special place that it is, and there’s an opportunity to continue that — to be really thoughtful about how that continues for the community. ... We are lucky enough to have amazing leaders in this community, and United Way of Greenville is a great partner to keep that going.
You’ve worked at United Way for a large portion of your career. What is it about United Way that has made you stay? So I have been a servant leader my entire career. I was fortunate enough to start out in the nonprofit sector, and I worked for close to 10 years in New York City for a couple of nonprofits there, and I loved that work because I loved being in direct contact with kids and families and community. After spending time in a lot of different neighborhoods in New York that would be considered “toughest” or “underserved” or “at-risk” neighborhoods, what I found in Coney Island and Browns-
ville and Far Rockaway — yes there were a lot of challenges in those communities, but there was this joy and optimism and a community network that really believed in connecting opportunities and making sure that kids had quality education. I was really inspired by that, and when I left New York, I really wanted to take all of that knowledge and that work experience I had in direct service and apply that to philanthropy. United Way has always stood out to me because we’re sort of this interesting hybrid between a corporate feel and a nonprofit and also a funder, right? So we play all these different roles. What I loved about that is that we get all these opportunities to work with all sorts of caring people and communities, and we have that nice vantage point of seeing all of the challenges but also all of the opportunities for solutions. That really drew me into United Way. I also love being part of a huge global network of United Ways, so yes we raise and invest money locally, and we understand community issues and needs locally, but we are part of this bigger United Way family and network where we have a ton of people volunteering and giving and working on behalf of those who need that hand up to move up and out of poverty. I love that. I love our mission. I love the work that we do. The team here is incredible, so it’s really where my heart is.
What are you most excited about moving to Greenville? I think one of the things that I’m most excited about with living in Greenville is there’s such a huge outdoors scene. So biking, hiking, being close to the mountains, and being able to really get outdoors. We have a dog, a golden retriever named Sailor who is almost 3, and I think he is probably as excited as both of us are to be here because we’re outside with him all the time. Also, I think just the community; this really has that community feel. We are super excited about the food and restaurant scene here, and also a huge fan of the arts scene that’s happening here. It feels like every single night there’s something going on that we can get engaged in. I’m just excited about exploring and getting to know the community and people better. This really already feels like home, which we love. And the weather doesn’t hurt.

GREENVILLE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION MARKS 50 YEARS
MADNESS IN GREENVILLE REAL ESTATE
The Greenville Federal Credit Union marks its 50th anniversary this year. Among the ways the credit union has given back to the community has been a sizable investment in the student-run branch at Greenville High School, showing a commitment to educating the youth of Greenville County.
Call Jack for an “assist” and he’ll get you to your ONE SHINING MOMENT! (Above left) Paul Hughes, president of Greenville Federal Credit Union, says although a lot has changed in the last 50 years, the focus of the credit union remains steadfast: to be a real alternative to traditional banking.

Ring of Fire
The remedy for crisp nights: Something that burns bright
24 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 03.16.2018 GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM
Fire, Fire, Burning Bright Outdoor fire features add beauty and utility to your backyard. by Kathleen Nalley
W Featuring Ruff Reporter:
ho doesn’t love the flicker of flame, the hiss of smoldering wood, the warmth of an open fire under the stars? A backyard fire feature can turn your landscape, deck, or patio into an outdoor warming station, a favorite gathering place for friends and family, a haven in which to commune with nature. From fireplaces, pits, bowls, tables, and cauldrons, outdoor warming options are seemingly endless. Fire features may be permanent or portable, wood burning or gas, freestanding or built-in, and accommodate any budget — a big-box-store fire pit can cost less than one hundred dollars, while custom fireplaces can run upwards of $20,000. Joe Zawistowski of Green Hill Landscaping finds today’s homeowners desire the use of mixed materials in their fire features—brick, fieldstone, and granite, for example. Most homeowners opt for stone
fireplaces for enclosed outdoor rooms, raised fire pits for landscapes (helps to keep little ones safe), and modern, contemporary lines. “Freeform features have given way to more simplistic, minimalistic designs,” he says. “And homeowners tend to place fire features on the edges of their patios as opposed to the once-popular center.” Placement is key. Fire features should be far away from trees and located in a space that suits their function. “Thousands of years ago, fires were used to provide heat and cook. Today, homeowners typically want those areas separated,” he says. Consider function before placement: do you want ambiance, an artistic statement, a cooking apparatus, or simply a place to wind down and warm up? No matter how you go about creating your family’s outdoor warming retreat, Zawistowski insists you just do it: “Get a fire going and get outside in nature.”
How You Can Help Community Cats
Did you know there’s a free program at Animal Care that’s dedicated to helping local cats? It’s called the Community Cat Diversion Program and it lets citizens of Greenville County get stray cats spayed and neutered for free so that we can reduce cat overpopulation and save lives. This is the second year they’ve offered this program and we’ve already seen the number of stray cats reduced in a big way! I’m not saying I’m against cats or anything, but to me this seems like a pretty great plan. If you have a lot of cats in your neighborhood, all you need to do is rent a trap from Animal Care, and you can start doing your part to help us build a NO KILL community by spaying and neutering animals!
Iron-sculpted fire bowls are equal parts form and function and easily bought at area home improvement and landscape supply stores or can be hand-forged by iron craftsmen such as Ryan Calloway of Creative Ironworks Greenville.
The South has a long history during the antebellum period with its syrup kettles. Syrup or sugar kettles were used to process everything from soap to hogs to sugar cane. If you’ve ever watched a classic western film you know about the campfire cauldrons. No chuck wagon would be complete without one. Each of these vessels, typically hand-crafted, has become the modern-day alternative to the campfire. Multiple options are available for each from two companies who are experts in the field, Carolina Kettles, located in Walterboro, SC (www.carolinakettles.com) and the Cowboy Cauldron Company in Salt Lake City,Utah (www.cowboycauldron.com). Because both types of firepits will serve the purpose, once you compare them the choice will most likely be one of aesthetics, the coolness factor, or a desire to stay with the historic choice for your area. –by Lynn Greenlaw
Want to Fan the Flames? An outdoor warming retreat offers so many options for maximum enjoyment: • Grill on it: borrow a metal grate from your grill or oven and place over the fire to create an instant outdoor kitchen. • Gather around it: nothing says intimate more than a circle of friends communing around a fire. Add hot cider or spiked wassail and call it a party. • Summon the campground: roast marshmallows, tell ghost stories with the kids, and pitch a tent nearby to create a fall “staycation.” • Impress your neighbors: an installation in which fire dances across water may not serve any purpose other than to be a dramatic conversation piece. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

‘MAMMA MIA!’ HERE WE GO AGAIN THE WAREHOUSE THEATRE’S NEXT SEASON
03.16.2018 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 31
32 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 03.16.2018 GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM
Warehouse Theatre's Mike Sablone dishes on 2018-2019 season NEIL SHURLEY | CONTRIBUTOR
"Cry It Out" by Molly Smith Metzler Directed by Rebekah Suellau April 26-May 12, 2019 This comedy shows the struggle of three new mothers from three different social classes as they try to balance their ambitions against the fact that their worlds are being turned upside down. Sablone: “Most reminiscent of 'The Cake,' this is another play that will have you laughing and crying, sometimes at the same time. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I saw the world premiere at the Humana Festival in Louisville a year ago. A playwright I’ve long admired, Molly is a dual threat, writing both for the stage and for TV, most notably 'Orange is the New Black.' Her keen insight and wicked sense of humor will be on full display here.”
The Warehouse Theatre's Producing Artistic Director Mike Sablone has announced the 2018-2019 season, which is also the theater’s 45th season. “Given that this is our 45th season, I wanted to take a moment to both look at the rich history of the Warehouse while at the same time looking to the future,” Sablone says. “In that same spirit, I also wanted to focus on what the Warehouse Theatre is to so many: a family. An all-inclusive, everyone-isinvited family. We're celebrating everything that family means: the family you're born into, the people you choose to make your family, and how the strength of a family often comes from celebrating each other's differences.” Here are the shows coming next season, along with some commentary from Sablone.

"Sweat" by Lynn Nottage Oct. 12–28, 2018 The season opens with a Pulitzer Prizewinning drama. "Sweat" tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat. Sablone: “Even before it went to Broadway, before it won the Pulitzer, I had my eye on this play. Given Greenville’s history as the Textile Capital of the World, plus our new position as a global hub for international businesses like BMW and Michelin, it was a no-brainer. The kind of relevant, warm, important work that is the hallmark of the Warehouse, it's the perfect play to start our 45th season.”
"Christmas on the Rocks" by John Cariani, Jeffrey Hatcher, Jacques Lamarre, Matthew Lombardo, Theresa Rebeck, Edwin Sanchez, and Jonathan Tolins Directed by Chip Egan Dec. 6-23, 2018 Back by popular demand, this Christmas classic and Greenville favorite reunites us with characters from the Christmas stories of our childhoods — this time a little older and not quite as cheery as they once were. Charlie Brown, Tiny Tim, Clara from "The Nutcracker," Ralphie from "A Christmas Story," Hermie from
"Rudolph," Zuzu from "It’s A Wonderful Life," and Karen from "Frosty the Snowman" all catch us up on the sordid details of their lives since we last saw them. Sablone: “Very excited to remount this smash hit from 2015. Featuring the original Warehouse director (Chip Egan) and cast members (Brock Koonce, Matt Reece, Amanda Sox, Anne Tromsness, and adding Ronn Carroll, who was in the world premiere), plus two new pieces, this uproarious comedy gives answers to questions you didn’t know you had about your favorite characters from Christmas classics.”
"The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams Directed by Kerrie Seymour Jan. 25-Feb. 10, 2019 One of the most revered and wellknown plays ever written, Tennessee Williams’ "The Glass Menagerie" introduces us to Tom Wingfield, who recalls the memory of his overly devoted mother, Amanda, and shy, sensitive sister, Laura, and the night a gentleman caller tore the family apart. Sablone: “One of the greatest plays ever written, and undoubtedly one of the
most well known, we will be mounting our own take on this modern American classic. Featuring local luminary Mimi Wyche as the matriarch, Amanda Wingfield, you will not want to miss this.”
"Power of Sail" by Paul Grellong March 15-31, 2019 Next up, a timely world premiere about a Harvard professor who invites a controversial white nationalist speaker to campus. When the student body protests, the professor conducts the interview off-campus instead — with disastrous results. Sablone: “A world premiere by playwright and preeminent television writer Paul Grellong ('Scorpion,' 'Revolution,' 'Law & Order: SVU'). I’m proud that Greenville gets to produce this play before anyone else! 'Power of Sail' is a play that examines free speech and the changing political landscape, specifically on college campuses. I am thrilled to be the first theater to produce this important new play. It’s about time that we launched plays out into the world, as that’s the level of professionalism that we bring to all productions.”
by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen Directed by Jay Briggs June 7-30, 2019 In this familiar yet progressive adaptation of the classic love story, we follow the antics of Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, and the entire Bennet clan as they battle to put their pride aside in the pursuit of love. Sablone: “This will be a sheer and utter delight. It’s almost criminal that we have to wait so long for this production. This play redefines the novel, highlighting the humor found in the novel but not sparing the romance. A big, exciting, fun party celebrating the search for love in all its messy glory.” BONUS PRODUCTION
"The Rocky Horror Show" Book, Music, and Lyrics by Richard O’Brien Directed by Jenna Tamisiea Elser Aug. 31-Sept. 16, 2018 An all-new production of the hit musical, complete with audience engagement and singing and dancing in the aisles. This playful take on a science-fiction story promises to rock Greenville once again. Sablone: “Dust off the costumes, brush up on the callbacks: Greenville’s favorite party is back, bigger and badder than ever! Start getting excited!” Additional production credits and casting to be announced at a later date.

“You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life…” Centre Stage will whisk the audience away to a Greek island paradise on select nights in March and April for an evening of song, dance, and laughter at “Mamma Mia!” The widely known musical has captured the hearts of many people around the world with its quirky characters, lighthearted story, and ABBA’s timeless songs. The story is set in Greece and begins with a young girl, Sophie, on the eve of her wedding day. Curious about the identity of her father, Sophie discovers three possibilities from the past of her mother, Donna. Naturally, Sophie does what any rational person would do — she invites all three men to her wedding. From there, the chaos ensues! The tale of love, laughter, and friendship features ABBA’s hit songs, such as “Super Trouper,” “Lay All Your Love on Me,” “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Thank You for the Music,” “Money, Money, Money,” “The Winner Takes It All,” “Voulez-Vous,” “SOS,” and the musical’s namesake, “Mamma Mia.” The show stars Centre Stage executive artistic director Glenda ManWaring as Donna, the independent, hardworking mother who
built and runs a taverna. Donna is at the center of the story with Sophie, and the two experience quite the roller coaster when these three men appear. “I really identify with her quite well,” ManWaring says of her character, Donna. A mother of two daughters, ManWaring says those special mother-daughter moments in the show are easy to imitate and “very much at home to me.” Working with Kaylee Gonzalez-Willis, who plays Sophie, also makes the motherdaughter relationship easier to portray, ManWaring says. Acting out that special bond came naturally for the two. “The cast makes [the show] extremely enjoyable,” she says. For her role as Sophie, Gonzalez-Willis did a lot of character research and dug deep into Sophie’s upbringing, her relationships, and her decisions. “I do a complete detailed analysis of how that character would be,” she says of looking at the core of Sophie. The high energy, bubbly personality, and optimism embodied by Sophie resonate with Gonzalez-Willis. “There’s a lot of things that are interesting [about Sophie], how much I was able to relate to her energy and her willingness to love and take everything with a happy heart,” she says. To best portray Sophie and not adapt to other versions of the story, Gonzalez-Willis listened only to the original soundtrack and steered clear of watching the movie. “I want Sophie to be my own,” she says. As a guest director who’s worked with Centre Stage for about 10 seasons now, John Fagan wanted to make “Mamma Mia!” unique and different, just as the cast
Michele Colletti, Glenda ManWaring, and Cindy Mixon Photo by Escobar Photography
is unique and different. At the first sitdown meeting with the cast, Fagan always says, “we have to make this show ours” and “the story has to be told our way.” The entire cast has bought into the idea of owning the show — not copying other shows but still honoring parts of them. Fagan said he left the first rehearsal smiling, which doesn’t always happen for every show. “[They’re a] strong, talented cast bringing their A-game to this show,” he says. ManWaring agrees. “The cast is wonderful and a joy to work with,” she says. The point of the whole show is for all involved to have a good time and enjoy “pure, unadulterated entertainment,” Fagan says. And the music is sure to give the audience good vibes. The bouncy, fun ABBA songs elicit smiles, singing, and dancing from the audience. Gonzalez-Willis says the music resonates well with people of all ages. “This is music that won’t die and just keeps going on and has the ability to unite people,” she says. The audience should come expecting an escape from the real world and an immersion into this Greek island vacation. Gonzalez-Willis says she wants the audience to become part of “Mamma Mia!” and leave feeling refreshed.

INCREDIBLE JOURNEYS Young adult authors Stacey Ramey and Jeff Strand talk new releases ROBERT HULL | EDITORIAL INTERN
Stacey Ramey and Jeff Strand are both preparing to release their latest young adult novels, but the similarities in these two authors’ works end there. While Ramey focuses on contemporary realistic fiction, Strand is a horror writer who also dabbles in comedy and humor. Ramey’s “The Secrets We Bury” tells the story of Dylan, a teen who runs away from home when his family decides to place him in a school for psy-
fa mily Stores “Thank You for giving me the help I needed to get back to my fa mily.”
chologically challenged students. He decides to get away by hiking the Appalachian Trail, where on his journey he bumps into a mysterious girl known only as “The Ghost.” Strand’s latest novel, “How You Ruined My Life,” is a story about a teen named Rod, who has the perfect life — until his scheming cousin, Blake, comes to stay with his family for a semester. Rod struggles to stay levelheaded as Blake begins causing chaos in every aspect of his life. Before Ramey and Strand’s stop in Greenville for a talk at Fiction Addiction next week, the Greenville Journal spoke with both authors about their writing careers and new releases. Stacey Ramey Ramey, who currently works with high school-aged autistic students, is the author of three young adult nov-
els. Her first novel, “The Sister Pact,” is a story about Allie, who is struggling with accepting her sister’s suicide but uncovers some revealing secrets behind her death. Her second novel, “The Homecoming,” is a tale about John, a teen who is finally returning home after being kicked out years ago and is having trouble with high school and dealing with his family. When writing, Ramey says she tries to inject some amount of mystery into her stories. “I love suspense,” she says. “As a reader, it’s the story’s questions that keep me reading.
I try to do the same for my readers.” Regarding her newest book, Ramey says that while she has little personal experience hiking, she has always had a fascination with the Appalachian Trail. “Once I decided to set this book on the Appalachian Trail, I did an incredible amount of research,” Ramey says. “Mostly I wanted to capture the feeling of focusing on the simple things in life, like surviving and forgetting all of the noise in life. For Dylan, I felt that this would be the best way for him to grieve the loss of his father and move forward.” Jeff Strand Strand’s writing career spans two decades and more than 30 comedy/horror novels. Growing up, Strand says he was an imaginative kid who loved reading just about anything, from fantasy to mystery. “My favorite authors were ev-
erybody who wrote a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ book,” Strand says. “I would read and re-read and re-re-read those things far beyond the point where I’d exhausted every possible story outcome. Also, the ‘Encyclopedia Brown’ books and everything Beverly Clearly wrote.” Even though horror is a subject in nearly everything Strand writes — he is a four-time nominee of the Bram Stoker Award, which recognizes achievement in dark fantasy and horror writing — it was not one of his childhood passions. “I didn’t really like horror as a kid,” Strand says. “[I was] way too squeamish. I would turn into a horror fanatic around age 16, but before that, ugh, no!” For those who don’t enjoy horror, Strand assures readers that “How You Ruined My Life” is pure comedy. “Hopefully readers will find it to be a very, very, very funny tale, but there is nary a dead body to be found!” he says. Other notable titles from Strand include “Blister,” a story about a cartoonist who meets a disfigured woman; “A Bad Day For Voodoo,” a strange tale of two high schoolers who get their hands on a voodoo doll in the image of their teacher; and “Wolf Hunt,” a story about two delinquents who are hired to transport a caged werewolf cross-country. Although Strand claims a vast catalog of works, he says it took him years full of rejections before he ever got his first book published. “There is no successful published author who is ashamed of the rejections letters they’ve received,” Strand says. “It’s part of the process.”

THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE Dorothy Shain’s vibrant artwork — from Anthropologie bathing suits to paintings — is inspired by small details
SARA PEARCE | STAFF
Dorothy Shain has always had a passion for art, but she never expected that it could be her full-time career. A Greenville native, Shain focused on exploring her love for art in high school and attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas on a fine arts scholarship. After graduating, she worked in the nonprofit sector in Washington, D.C., and, while on a business trip to Charleston, realized she could be doing more. “There was so much creativity there, so I decided to move there,” Shain says. “That’s where I realized that there was a young crowd of artists and creatives that showed me you could do more than just pay your rent and make ends meet. They were killing it. That’s when I decided to do it full time.”
She landed back in Greenville upon realizing that the arts scene h e r e w a s growing rapidly as well and that Greenville had emerged as a different town than where she grew up. Shain’s bright, vibrant pieces often channel her experiences with travel. She has collections inspired by her time in South Beach, the Pacific Coast, Guatemala, and Jackson Hole, among others. “It doesn’t always click, but it’s when something goes off in my mind,” Shain
says. “I recently did a collection from my trip to Guatemala, and it’s the little things. Like when someone is telling me a story about a coffee farm and shows me a coffee plant, or I pass all these street dogs. I pull little elements. I feel like that’s what ends up back in my paintings. When I get back, I dump everything in my bags out — whether it’s jewelry or fabric or business cards — and look at my pictures and start small and pull small elements out and just start playing with it. Then something in my head clicks that I could take this to a larger scale.” This is precisely what happened with Shain’s first collection of bikinis sketches, which were inspired by vintage beach culture on a trip to South Beach. “I was just sketching in my studio one time, and someone bought them. It was the first time I ever sold something. It clicked for me that things will sell when you produce products that you like, and then you’ll attract the right buyer,” Shain says. This ideology is exemplified by her recent collaboration with Anthropologie to create Dorothy Shain x Anthropologie Swimwear 2018, which fuses her bold, colorful patterns with swimwear and summer pieces. Shain initially ran into an Anthropologie representative by chance and
reached out about a collaboration around three years ago. “They told me I wasn’t a good fit for
them. Then I posted on Instagram about a year ago, and they had sent me an email within an hour about a collaboration,” Shain says. “I never thought they would become real bathing suits. That is a testament to Instagram and the power of social media, because that connection came solely from Instagram. Now that that has happened it makes your mind wander and realize the possibilities are endless.” Shain believes in the power of Instagram and says that it has been a significant part of networking and her inspiration. “I see what other artists are doing, and that makes me realize I can do so many other things, too,” she says. She believes that one of the most important aspects of a small business is collaboration, and realizing that you are just one person and that it’s OK to ask for help. “The power of collaboration is really important for small businesses and artists, because they don’t always have the capital to do those projects, so it’s been awesome to see that someone else can help make a project come to life that I couldn’t necessarily fund on my own,” Shain says. Shain has collaborated with several friends, other artists, and now companies like Anthropologie to expand her art past the canvas. Shain is most proud of her custom painting purchased by actress Mindy Kaling. “I didn’t get to actually meet her, but it was incredible,” Shain says. “I’m really proud of that.” The commissioned piece, which hangs on Kaling’s guest bedroom wall, was spotlighted in the July 2017 issue of Architectural Digest magazine. Shain isn’t slowing down anytime soon. She works hard to learn what she hasn’t yet mastered and spends her free time reading business books and listening to marketing podcasts to further her success and business acumen. Her creativity continues to grow through new travels, new collaborations, and the continued support of the Greenville art community. Shain just moved into a new space at Art and Light Gallery in the West Village of Greenville, which she says will give her room to grow more as an artist. Though she has already achieved feats that many artists work their entire careers for, she remains eager to learn from others’ experiences and wisdom while continuing on her own path of success.

Whether you know it or not, you’ve probably heard Grammy-winning keyboard player Ike Stubblefield, who specializes in rippling, soulful Hammond B-3 organ playing. His resume of sessions and tours is staggering. He began in Detroit in the 1960s at age 14 as a member of Motown Records’ traveling revue, backing the Four Tops and The Temptations, Martha Reeves, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and others. It’s difficult to imagine anyone moving upward after that, but Stubblefield’s reputation as a reliable, versatile player was cemented, and he seemed to go from prime gig to prime gig in the ’70s and ’80s, playing with George Benson, B.B. King, Ike and Tina Turner, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, and the Jerry Garcia Band, among many others, moving from Detroit to New York to London to San Francisco without ever slowing down. As a young musician, Stubblefield had some of the best influences possible: Keyboardist George Duke, then playing with Frank Zappa’s genre-bending Mothers of Invention, took Stubblefield under his wing, and his cousin Clyde played drums with James Brown, passing on his flawless sense of rhythm and groove. Stubblefield could handle everything from piano to the early synthesizers, but he honed in on the Hammond B-3 early on. “I was playing the organ in church when I was 6 or 7 years old,” he says. “It was a powerful instrument, totally different from a piano or keyboard like a Fender Rhodes or a Wurlitzer. And coming from a drumming aspect because of Clyde, it was an easy transition because I was playing the bass pedals and supporting the band.” Stubblefield garnered attention on the Detroit club scene from the artists on Motown Records, and they recruited him to fill in on some live dates, which should’ve been intimidating for a 14-year-old, but not this one. “It was fun!” he says with a laugh. “It wasn’t scary at all. I came from that school where you can’t ever let them see you sweat. And they’ll tell you if you’re not doing it right.” After decades as a first-call session play-

er, live performer, producer, songwriter, club owner, and more, Stubblefield decided to move to Atlanta, largely because of the weather. “I’d been all over the world before I moved here,” he says. “I was in Vancouver with a club called the Purple Onion, but I was ready to get in warmer weather again. And Atlanta seemed to be a good spot. So in 1999, I came down and set up shop.” “Set up shop” is a bit of an understatement. Within two weeks, Stubblefield had been noticed by the legendary Southern-jam-rocker Col. Bruce Hampton, and he joined Hampton’s band, The Codetalkers. That’s where he first heard the term “jam-band.” “I thought, ‘A jam-band? What’s a jamband?’” he says. “We were doing that 15 years ago! Jamming is what you’re supposed to do! Otherwise, it’s just like playing the record over and over again. Back in the day, the bands I was in would rehearse every day and jam.” That experience with Hampton exposed Stubblefield to a whole new group of mu-
sicians, most notably guitarist Derek Trucks and drummer Jeff Sipe. He even found time to record extensively with CeeLo Green. After 50 years behind the keys, Stubblefield is busier than ever, playing shows all over the Southeast, like his show at The Firmament in Greenville on Friday with Upstate blues guitarist Shane Pruitt and the Winston-Salem, N.C., psychedelic funk group Marvelous Funkshun. “It’s like cooking,” he says of working with different musicians. “Every musician is like an ingredient. And if I’m thrown into the pot with them, I see what it tastes like. It’s not what you play, it’s what you don’t that’s important. You have to listen to what’s going on. I don’t really think about it because it’s not supposed to be about thinking. It’s about feeling. You can’t add salt to everything you cook; you can’t play the same thing every time.” And to say the least, that approach has worked for Ike Stubblefield. “Six Grammys and 50 years and I’m still going,” he says.

‘THIS IS EVERYBODY’S PROBLEM’ GLOW Lyric Theatre opens dialogue on gun violence with ‘Armed’ NEIL SHURLEY | CONTRIBUTOR
As mass shootings continue to grab headlines, GLOW Lyric Theatre premieres “Armed,” the latest entry in their Raising Voices series, running Monday and Tuesday at The Warehouse Theatre. “Armed” combines various artistic elements in an attempt to reflect on and open a dialogue about the issue of gun violence. “We’re looking at the issue from a lot of different sides,” says Jenna Tamisiea, GLOW’s artistic director. “This is everybody’s problem, and everybody at some point has to be a part of the solution.” Tamisiea’s impetus for putting together “Armed” stemmed from the lack of dialogue she witnessed both in person and in the media. “I’m the kind of person that wants to bring people together,” she says. “I want to make everybody feel like they’re being heard, and I just wasn’t feeling that way after those massacres happened.” So, based on GLOW’s mission to create socially relevant theater, she decided to create an environment where everyone can be heard. “That’s what’s great about theater,” she says. “You have to listen. You’re there and you’re listening to someone else’s voice. We obviously give our audiences the chance to be a part of the conversation afterward, but when they’re watching, they get a chance to understand and feel different perspectives.” Tamisiea emphasizes that the evening is specifically geared toward illuminating differing voices rather than focusing on any one political agenda. “I think there are a lot of commonalities on both sides of the fence,” she says. “All of the arguments on both sides center around safety, and I think everybody agrees that they don’t want people to die.” GLOW partnered with several local organizations for “Armed,” including Safe Harbor, Arm in Arm, Moms Demand Action, and the newly formed March for Our Lives. “Our partner organizations have different perspectives and vastly different missions,” Tamisiea says. “So I asked them, ‘What do you want me to say? What do we need to say?’ And so, for instance, since Safe Harbor is involved, we are touching in the piece about domestic violence and how it’s perpetuated.” The performance will also broach the subject of school shootings, based on input from Moms Demand Action and March For Our Lives. This, too, involves a variety of voices, including that of gun owners, and how acts of violence affect their ownership rights. “Arm in Arm works to bring together gun owners and people who want more gun
GLOW LYRIC THEATRE PRESENTS “ARMED”
laws enacted,” Tamisiea says. “Child suicide is also a big issue that both Arm in Arm and Moms Demand Action want us to talk about because that has to do with gun safety in the home.” The performance will be held at The Warehouse Theatre, on the set of their current production, “The Flick.” “The set is the inside of a movie theater,” Tamisiea says, “so that already is a very powerful statement for what we are talking about.” Audiences can expect to see elements of dance, opera, musical theater, pop music, the premiere of a new work by local composer Jon Grier, and what Tamisiea calls reenactments. “Not reenactments of violence,” she says, “but reenactments of people’s testimonies about how they’ve been impacted by violence. Our partner organizations have been very hands-on; they have given me resources and survivor stories and letters they have written to government officials — so we have real materials from real people living here in the Upstate that we’re using as source material. The partner organizations are directly contributing to this performance piece.” This performance aspect of “Armed,” however, is only part of the event. The evening starts at 6 p.m. with a free reception where attendees can mingle with and learn more about the partner organizations. The performance begins at 7 p.m., followed immediately by a panel discussion involving representatives of the partner organizations, actors, and the director. “The amount of information I’ve learned from these organizations is incredible,” Tamisiea says. “I thought I knew what the heck was going on with this issue until I was educated by these partner organizations. We’re learning as we do this, which is extremely exciting.” The show features eight performers and should run about an hour with the talkback beginning around 8 p.m. Please note that the show contains triggering subject matter. In the end, Tamisiea’s goal is to highlight possible solutions toward peace, understanding, healing, and change. “I just wanted to find a way where maybe people could listen more than they could shout at each other,” she says.

A NEW TAKE ON COMFORT
Luna Rosa Gelato Cafe plans June move to new Main Street location WORDS BY ARIEL TURNER
Six months after opening on Nov. 19, 2007, the Luna Rosa Gelato Cafe owners were looking for a bigger space, says Jose Ortiz, catering manager. And now that their 10-year lease is almost up, they’ve found it — the former Bellacino’s Pizza & Grinders at 123 S. Main St. that closed Dec. 31. Luna Rosa will move from its 1,100-square-foot location at 9 W. Washington St. to the new spot across from the Westin Poinsett Hotel in mid-to-late June if the construction and permitting stay on schedule. Luna Rosa has been a joint family venture of Richard and Linda Schweitzer and their daughter and her husband, Lauren and Jose Ortiz, since the beginning, and having signed a long-term lease for the new location, this move solidifies their dedication to growing the family business in downtown Greenville. Ortiz says that although they’ve looked at many different spaces to move, they’ve been eyeing the Bellacino’s one for about

two years because of its location in a prime pedestrian territory and the additional usable space totaling more than twice the size of the current cafe. “It is the ideal location for our particular concept — visibility, size, scope,” he says. The additional space with a full kitchen will allow for a menu increase of about 35 percent and the addition of dinner service. That means more pasta, seafood, steak, and burgers while scaling back on sandwiches, Ortiz says. Linda Schweitzer, who cooks everything from scratch in the small kitchen, is developing all of the new recipes. “Many things we haven’t been able to do here because of capacity and size that we intended from day one,” Ortiz says. The menu expansion also includes a full bar, which will feature blended concoctions using Luna Rosa’s gelato and fruit, and original cocktails designed to be paired with the food.
“This is what we consider good Southern Italian comfort food in a great atmosphere with great service,” Ortiz says. “We have the incomparable Trattoria Giorgio next door, so I feel like we can really complement what they’re doing, a little more mid-level to their dining.” Ortiz says they’ve already introduced themselves to the staff at the iconic fine-dining Italian restaurant that shares a wall with them, and that he looks forward to their continued relationship. The new Luna Rosa will continue with counter service for house-made gelato and seated lunch and dinner service. The front half of the store will be designated for the gelato counter, and the back half will be dedicated to dining-room seating and a full bar. Indoor seating will total about 60, with a planned outdoor patio extension off the back that may seat 30 to 50, depending on what the kitchen can handle, Ortiz says. Richard Schweitzer, who designed the brightly colored, modular Italian look of the current store, is spearheading
the design of the new location with the help of DP3 Architects. “Each space from a creative standpoint dictates its own,” Ortiz says. “We are carrying over a lot of the design elements, but it will be a little more upscale and comfortable.” The plan calls for keeping some of the original woodwork and restoring it to its original luster and also returning the mirrored shelving on the wall. “Things that we learned from being in such a small space here is how to be extremely efficient with our space, and [we] learned a lot of lessons about storage and turnover and keeping everything fresh,” Ortiz says. “I mean, great lessons. Going into another space, we are going to be extremely efficient with every inch.” Ortiz says they will be looking to hire more front- and back-of-house employees in the near future. “We pride ourselves on what I consider some of the best hospitality and service in downtown, so we want to maintain that in a larger space,” Ortiz says. “It’s easier to do in a small space, but we’ll do our best to maintain that in a larger space.” Training new staff in the family’s tradition of hospitality will be the highest priority. “We’re a small, family-owned place that lives and dies by the thought that each person who walks through our door should be treated like a guest in our home,” Ortiz says.

small plates FOOD NEWS & EVENTS BY ARIEL TURNER
feast Luck o’ the Irish All day at Tupelo Honey on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, guests will receive a Tupelo Honey pint glass for a penny with the purchase of any beer and small plate. Also, (and who knew this crucial celebration existed?) on National Chip and Dip Day – March 23 – all guests who make any purchase will receive their choice of a free Kickin’ Carolina Dip, Pimento Cheese Nachos, or a Mason Jar Dip.
Rise and shine Rise Biscuits Donuts officially opens its first Greenville location on March 21 at 1507 Woodruff Road. An award-winning concept from Durham, N.C., Rise Biscuits Donuts serves sweet and savory breakfast and lunch options. A grand-opening celebration will be held March 24, during which 10 percent of that day’s sales will be donated to Mauldin Elementary School. “We are thrilled to be bringing the best dang biscuits, donuts, and righteous chicken to Greenville,” said franchisee Peter Cotter, who leads an experienced ownership group. “Community-building is at the heart of Rise’s mission, and we’re proud to be giving back to the neighborhood by raising money for Mauldin Elementary.” Store hours are 6 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Worth the wait You’ll have to wait a little longer for the Pelham@85 food event that was supposed to be held March 24 in the parking lot in front of Bacon Bros. Public House, Chicken Salad Chick, Tazikis, The Lost Cajun, and other restaurants on Pelham Road. The Saturday afternoon food festival featuring the “restaurant row” residents has been postponed until May with the new date TBD.
This one’s for the girls Although the second annual FAB Workshop event is held in Charleston, it’s 100 percent worth a trip for any woman in the hospitality industry looking to level up, and especially for women in our growing foodie destination. For roughly 48 hours, June 10-12, some of the top female chefs (James Beard nominees and award winners included), restaurateurs, authors, and executives in food and bev will impart their knowledge to attendees in seminars and panel discussions, which even include a hands-on business plan boot camp. Tickets are still available, but a March 30 deadline looms for two specific options: applying for a scholarship to attend (still many more available) and applying for Pitch It!, a Shark-Tank style presentation of attendees’ business plans to a panel of FAB experts. Got to thisisfab.com for more details.
ICYMI from UBJ The multicolor shipping container food hall, Gather GVL, planned for the West End at 126 and 128 Augusta St., has signed its taproom operator – Greenville Beer Exchange (GBX). Think 20 brews on tap — including local, regional, national, and international selections, and possibly a craft soda, cider, or kombucha — to pair with some super tasty grub. Gather GVL now has five of the planned 13 units under lease with commitments from six more, which are in various stages of lease negotiation. The four other signed tenants are concepts by Asheville, N.C.’s fried chicken and doughnut shop HenDough, which, along with its flagship concept, will include a Roman-style pizza-by-the-slice shop, stacked griddle burger joint, and one yet to be announced. After 16 years as Soby’s on the Side, the made-to-order breakfast and lunch spot at 22 E. Court St. has been rebranded as Table 301 Catering & Kitchen. It reopens this week after closing at the end of January for renovations. The streamlined menu that allows the catering operations to continue uninhibited throughout the day includes two hot breakfast items with cheese and protein options (grit bowl and breakfast sandwich), a daily rotation of pastries, three seasonal sandwiches and a daily special, soup of the day, and various salads and snacks in the grab and go case. All of the sandwiches, salads, and snacks will be premade in the morning and available until they sell out. Follow @table301kitchen on social media for a daily list of menu options.

The Clemson Area Youth Theater is performing their stage adaptation of the classic novel “Anne of Green Gables.” Anne is a highly imaginative, freespirited orphan who touches the lives of all who come to know her. The play follows Anne as she leaves an orphanage, engages in a friendly rivalry with her classmate Gilbert Blythe, saves a child from her deathbed, and gets into other adventures and mishaps. “Anne of Green Gables” is the sixth Clemson Little Theatre show directed by Sybil Todd of Anderson. She enjoys sharing her passion for drama as an instructor and director of youth theater. Todd said she values the opportunity to help young people accomplish things that they never thought they could. “I was a very shy, reserved teenager and struggled with social skills,” Todd says. “Drama became a huge part of my life in high school and really helped to bring me out of my shell.” –Robert Hull

If it seems like Glynn Zeigler has been expanding his Albino Skunk Music Festival concept lately, it’s because he has been. The festival began more than 20 years ago as an all-bluegrass celebration on Zeigler’s Skunk Farm property in Greer, but as time went on, the festival expanded to include future superstars like The Avett Brothers, Lake Street Dive, and The Honeycutters. He’s also created several minifests, including a winter edition at The Spinning Jenny in Greer and this year’s Skunk Patrick’s Day celebration youtube. at Upstate Craft Beer. “It’s really just to bring awareness to the Spring Skunk Festival, and it com/watch?v=sPYIDMK29RQ gives us an opportunity to work with some local bands,” Zeigler says. “With bringing bands from all over the country and the world on just one stage, we don’t have as many local bands at the main festival. This is a way we can make a bigger local connection.” Zeigler co-organized the event with Chris Bizzell, creator of the iongreenville event calendar app. “We created a mini-app for the festival, and our relationship grew from there,” Bizzell says. “Last year we brewed some beer together and we did a little event, and this time we decided to take it up a notch and bring in some bands and brew up a special green beer for St. Patrick’s Day.” –Vincent Harris ers and their families.

#LOVE YOUR SUMMER JOB
For more than 25 years, South Carolina’s own goth-punk troopers have been touring and kicking out their one-of-a-kind, loud, hard, fast, catchy horror-show punk rock, led by the core duo of singer Evil Presly and guitarist Willy B. In fact, they’ve been around so long that Presly says he’s seen multiple generations of fans from the same family, which reminds him of how welcoming the punk rock scene was to him in Florence back in the late ‘80s. “I was going to shows way before the band started, and I had two older brothers who were youtube.com/watch?v=sPYIDMK29RQ metalheads,” Presly says, but he didn’t like the way the metal guys treated him. “And then I remember being at one show, and this guy named Herman Mutant, from a band called Sex Mutants, came over and started talking to me and he was super cool. All of the punk guys were so nice; they weren’t stuck up at all. There weren’t many punk shows around Florence, maybe one a month, but it was like a family reunion every month. There weren’t that many of us, so we were more accepting of one another.” –Vincent Harris Festival at NOMA Square featuring Irish music, dancing, and multiple children’s activities. www.visitgreenvillesc.com/events/

If it feels like you haven’t heard from the Upstate indie-prog-rock trio Sun Brother in a while, that might be because they haven’t played a show since this past summer. There are several reasons for that; it’s partially because all three band members were also in school, partially because they had to replace their drummer, and partially because bassist Joel Walter was recovering from an accident. “Joel had a brain injury back in December,” says singer and guitarist Zebraylon Woodruff. “He’s doing a lot better now, so we decided to book a show.” They’ve also added drummer Sean Costello, who Woodruff says has brought an entirely new youtube.com/watch?v=sPYIDMK29RQ feel to the band. “Sean has given us more of a sense of dynamics,” he says. “He’s a lot more laid-back; his touch is a lot lighter. We’re not as loud as we were before because he has a different style. His skill set is different, and he’s changed our old songs around enough to where they’re his now.” –Vincent Harris Joshua Putnam, candidate for secretary of state, at their next meeting.
