City prepares for Cabela’s grand opening traffic JEANNE PUTNAM | CONTRIBUTOR
GREG BECKNER / STAFF
City, state and Magnolia Park officials are taking extra measures in anticipation of the surge in Woodruff Road traffic expected to accompany the April 3 grand opening of the Cabela’s outfitters store in the Magnolia Park shopping center. An additional left-turn arrow is being added at the shopping center entrance closest to Cabela’s, giving motorists two lanes for making left turns in and out of the center, city officials said. In order to address some of the traffic concerns, both Costco and the Greenville Police Department will have extra personnel working through the grand opening weekend to help with traffic control. “We are going to be working out there at the store and near Costco for presence,” said Johnathan Bragg of the Greenville Police Department. In addition to extra police officers provided by the city for traffic control, Costco is hiring three off-duty police officers to help deal with the traffic around its store April 3, and possibly around-the-clock through the weekend, said Gus Reina, assistant general manager of Costco. Reina said traffic gridlock on weekends is not a new development for Costco, but the store will be grateful when the long months of construction activity are over. “Ever since the construction has ramped up, it’s been a little difficult because some of those entry
points were shut down,” he said. “We are ready for this [construction and Cabela’s grand opening] to be done and see what happens.” Cabela’s new neighbors are watching all the fanfare with anxieties of their own. “Our biggest concern is public safety, including our employees, and the public at large,” said Greg Szabo, COO of Nutra Manufacturing, located across the street from Magnolia Park. “We have been here since the mid-’70s and seen a lot of growth. It’s pretty obvious that this section of Woodruff Road has become a big challenge and the intersection we share with Cabela’s is going to become the next crisis.” Nutra has already had problems with people cutting through its front parking lot and was forced to cut off public access to it, Szabo said. While Nutra certainly is in favor of growth, Szabo said he is concerned about the associated inconvenience and safety issues on the surrounding infrastructure, particularly the traffic potentially slowing down first responders.

Heritage Green first phase improvements unveiled
GREG BECKNER / STAFF
This week, officials from the City of Greenville and Greenville County announced completion of the first phase of improvements to the Heritage Green urban arts and cultural campus located in downtown Greenville. The changes included new signage, a digital display, a raised terrace, landscape improvements and hardscapes. Covering two blocks, Heritage Green includes the Hughes Main Library, the Children’s Museum of the Upstate, Greenville Little Theatre, the Greenville County Museum of New signage and improved walkways and stairs at Heritage Green. Art, the Museum and Gallery at Heritage Green and the Upcountry History Museum-Furman University. In addition, the improvements worked to create a distinct, unified and inviting campus through making new internal connections, improving safety and providing “dynamic outdoor spaces,” county officials say. The $1.5 million project was funded through local accommodation tax funds. Future improvements have not been formally announced, but include pedestrian connection improvements from nearby streets and neighborhoods expected to be complete in 2015. “The Heritage Green campus is a tremendous community asset, and this most recently completed phase of revitalization improves upon what is already a unique and dynamic cultural centerpiece that is one of the best in the Southeast,” says Greenville County Council Chairman Bob Taylor.
City unveils proposed West Side brands JOE TOPPE | STAFF
email@example.com To strengthen community identity, the City of Greenville’s Connection for Sustainability team is branding the West Side and each of its three neighborhoods. The community brand was unveiled at a presentation held last week at the Kroc Center by Arnett Muldrow and Associates after conducting a three-day development workshop. Community Planner Wayne Leftwich said the Arnett Muldrow branding team met with the West Side residents and stakeholders to create a strategic
brand. “A brand can distinguish a community and make it more marketable for outside business,” he said. While connecting them all together, it’s still important to distinguish between the three West Side neighborhoods of Southernside, West End and West Greenville, said Ben Muldrow, partner at Muldrow and Associates. “We want the West Side to be the home place and the family place, and by offering this, it will give the city more to market the community,” he said.

OPINION VOICES FROM YOUR COMMUNITY, HEARD HERE
Moving SC forward After three days of debate and more than 210 roll call votes, the House of Representatives approved the $23.9 billion fiscal year 2014 South Carolina state budget and sent it to the Senate. About $6.9 billion of that amount is our true state budget, while most of the rest comes in federal pass-through dollars direct to other entities such as school districts, fees and fines paid to agencies, or items such as tuition payments to public colleges. This year’s budget funds the core functions of government, while living within our means, and includes no new or increased taxes. One of the major themes of the 2014-2015 budget is continued improvement in the state’s K-12 educational system. We adopted an updated funding formula for distribution of the Education Finance Act (EFA) funds that places greater emphasis on students in poverty, gifted students, and those requiring specialized instruction. The change will “hold harmless” school districts such as Greenville and ensure that while the formula has changed, we will not receive any less funding than we did in 2013. The budget also includes an additional $137 million added to the EFA to raise the Base Student Cost from $2,091 to $2,120, and $30 million to place a reading coach in every South Carolina elementary school. Schools with poor PASS test reading scores will have the position fully funded, and all others will receive 50 percent funding. Funding for summer reading camps in low-performing schools, digital instructional materials, school buses and charter schools is also included. At the higher education level, we included language for a national higher education consultant to conduct a complete review of the state’s higher education system. The review will focus on improved efficiency and effectiveness at the campus level and statewide. This will help us get a handle on how to save money, increase effectiveness and ultimately reduce tuition at our state’s institutions of higher education.

No more excuses
IN MY OWN WORDS by PHYLLIS HENDERSON
Health care is also a major component of our state budget. We chose not to expand Medicaid as provided in the Affordable Care Act, but we fully funded our required maintenance of effort and implemented a number of new programs aimed at reducing costs and creating healthier communities. We continue to fund the South Carolina Healthy Outcomes Initiative that works to establish a free health care safety net for South Carolinians. We included additional funding for mental health services, cancer networks, and foster care reimbursements. The budget invests more than $13 million in the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs to reduce wait lists for families requiring these essential services. Job creation and training is another important part of our 2014 budget. The Ready SC program, a key component of South Carolina’s economic development engine, focuses on the recruiting and initial training needs of new and expanding businesses. The program was fully funded in this budget. In addition, the Department of Commerce received over $40 million to aid in recruitment, site development and applied research initiatives to support industry in S.C. We also affirmed our commitment to the citizens of South Carolina to continue to provide cybersecurity coverage and IT security upgrades at the Department of Revenue to protect vital information from cyber threats. As the Senate debates the budget, it will surely change in some aspects. However, you can be assured that your voice is being heard and your elected representatives in Columbia are making sure our state’s vital needs are met without asking you to pay more while our economy continues to recover. Phyllis Henderson represents House District 21 in the S.C. Legislature.

South Carolina is in desperate need of a statewide ban on texting while driving. The state Legislature should show leadership and concern for constituents’ safety on the roads while restoring public confidence in the legislative process by passing such a ban. Three anti-texting bills are currently moving through the Legislature. Senate Bill 416 and House Bill 4386 both prohibit all texting while driving, but not for lawfully parked or stopped vehicles or for someone requesting emergency assistance. Senate Bill 459 prohibits all wireless electronic devices – not just texting – but only for drivers in school zones and those with beginner’s permits, conditional drivers and special restricted drivers licenses. Both Senate bills have been contested and are on the calendar (visit scstatehouse.gov to see which legislators objected to these bills). The state Senate is historically where these bills have stalled, even after they were passed in the House. Legislators are elected to oversee and protect the public good. By failing to pass an anti-texting-while-driving bill, legislators are ignoring the fact that more than 850 people die annually on South Carolina roads. South Carolina and Montana consistently rank among the top three deadliest states to drive in, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They are also the only two states in the country without any laws regulating cell phone use while driving. There are many reasons South Carolina should enact an anti-textingwhile-driving law: Drivers are 23 times more likely to crash when texting while driving, making it more dangerous than drunk driving. Texting takes a driver’s eyes off the road an average of five seconds. At 55 mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field. Texting is one of the most dangerous types of distracted driving because not only does it take drivers’ eyes off the road, but also their hands off the wheel

and minds off the task of driving. A November 2013 survey of 600,000 AAA Carolinas members in South Carolina showed that 99 percent were in favor of anti-texting regulation for ALL drivers. Representing nearly 14 percent of the state population, more than a dozen municipalities in South Carolina have passed their own laws against texting while driving, indicating that South Carolina residents want a law. Furthermore, anti-texting laws vary in each municipality, making it difficult for drivers to know what restrictions apply. Opponents of an anti-texting law say it’s hard to enforce. However, cities and counties in South Carolina with antitexting laws have already issued hundreds of tickets. Additionally, once a law is passed, most law-abiding drivers who text today will refrain. Opponents also believe that the government shouldn’t tell people what to do behind the wheel. Is it an individual’s right to endanger others on public roads? Traffic laws are designed to protect the driving public, not defend individual choices that risk lives. We see the effects of texting while driving every day: drivers in front of us weaving out of their lane, cars stopping short or running through red lights while drivers are looking down, or the horrific T-bone accidents, rear-end collisions and highway run-offs that have prematurely ended too many lives. It’s time for the Senate to pass an antitexting-while-driving bill. The evidence clearly favors it. Why would South Carolina, with its deadly traffic safety record, want to be the last state in the country to pass such a law? David E. Parsons is President and CEO of AAA Carolinas.

The Handlebar to close Legendary music venue plans September reopening elsewhere SHERRY JACKSON | STAFF
wit, Debtor’s parking arrangement with an adjacent business was cancelled and Debtor is unable to find suitable parking nearby to enable it to continue conducting business at its present location.” Tremonti says Jeter and Laughlin owe him and the other two partners two years of unpaid rent and the move is to try to avoid paying that. Tremonti also told the Journal that the Stone Avenue property already has a buyer and is currently under contract. Regardless of the outcome in court, Jeter said he and Laughlin are “not new to moving” and remain committed to bringing the Handlebar back in a different venue. Jeter said he owns the Handlebar trademark in South Carolina and he and Laughlin will open the new location under the Handlebar name without their previous partners. The Handlebar opened in a former auto-body shop on Stone Avenue in spring of 2001, following a nine-month hiatus after leaving its first location, a 100-year-old textile mill on Mills Avenue, a sprawling building now converted to condominiums, Jeter noted. “When we first moved into Mills Avenue it was a pretty creepy place, but it became the vanguard of that whole corridor,” he said. The same transformation happened at the Stone Avenue location, and “wherever we end up, we’ll blow that place too.” Besides the impact on its fans, the closing of The Handlebar has created a conundrum for the two mainstay events at The Handlebar: Gene Dillard’s Blue Grass Jam and Paul and Ansley Hoke’s Swing Dance. The Hokes have hosted swing dance parties every Tuesday at the venue for the past 15 years.

The Handlebar, a concert venue known for attracting both local and national musicians, announced earlier this week via Facebook and its website that it will be clos- Jeter ing its location at 304 E. Stone Ave. on April 30. Monday’s website post said the listening room, pub and café will re-open Sept.15 in an undisclosed new location. The post, which was addressed “to Handlebar Friends” and unsigned, said “between now and then, The Handlebar plans to pack so much talent and fun into its schedule that people will be talking about it until the unveiling of a new Handlebar.” Speculation swirled earlier this week on the reason for the closing. Co-owners John Jeter and wife Kathy Laughlin, who own 40 percent of The Handlebar, and partners John Egan, Charles Tremonti and Joseph Sorrentino who own the remaining 60 percent, have been embroiled in disputes over rent and bills being paid since the Handlebar entered into Chapter 11 bankruptcy in December 2013. Tremonti, Egan and Sorrentino own a majority stake in Mauldin Investments LLC, the entity that owns the property at 304 East Stone Ave. On March 25, the day after the closing announcement appeared, a stay was lifted as part of the bankruptcy proceedings to allow Tremonti, Egan and Sorrentino to proceed with “an eviction action regarding the principal place of The Handlebar will be closed on April 30. business of the Debtor (Handlebar Enterprises),” accord“We were there every week for 15 ing to court documents. years and everybody knew we were goCourt documents also state that “the ing to be there,” said Paul Hoke, adddebtor initially intended to assume the ing he wishes the couple well.

Several developers have expressed interest in converting the mill to housing, mixed-use developments or office space, she said, and the announcement of the historic designation has sparked renewed interest. Converting the mill to housing would be especially attractive to employees who work at the multiple companies at SCTAC, said Doug Webster, senior associate at CBRE. The Conestee Mill is offered for sale for $1.8 million. Approximately 500 people now live in the village of Conestee that grew up around the mill, which operated until 1971.

Bordered by Lake Conestee Nature Park and the SC Technology Aviation Center (SCTAC), the village of Conestee could see another step on the road to renewal with the addition of Conestee Mill to the National Register of Historic Places this month. The mill, which dates back to roughly 1876, was and still is the “heart of the community,” said Greenville County Planner Eric Vinson. A developer who was looking at renovating the mill building had already started the application process for National Register recognition, but the submission was incomplete, Vinson said. In early March, the application was approved after the county assisted with the stalled nomination, filling in informational gaps. “The mill and its history are a source of pride in the community,” he said. “It now gets some welldeserved notoriety.” In addition to the 1 0 5 , 0 0 0 - s q u a r e - f o o t The historic Conestee Mill and dam. mill, the designation includes the company store (circa 1919), Conestee Dam (circa identified the area as one in the county 1892) and Conestee Lake.

State-of-the-arts New CCES Performing Arts Center gives program needed space CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org A new $10.5 million Performing Arts Center planned for the Christ Church Episcopal School campus will serve two needs for the school’s growing music and drama programs. It will give the programs much needed space. But, perhaps more importantly, the new facility will send the message to students that their talents in the band, chorus or on stage are just as important as their talents in the classroom or on the athletic field, said David Sims, the school’s director of arts. “This facility will help the overall morale of the arts program in general,” Sims said. “It will send a message that the arts are just as important as anything else at the school.” The Performing Arts Center is the capstone project for the school’s Faith

in the Future campaign, a five-year effort that has produced significant upgrades to the private school’s athletic and academic facilities and created a new program for students. The school has generated approximately $6 million of the $7 million necessary to begin construction in June. “In recent years, CCES has been able to claim a position of excellence in academics and athletics,” said Kathryn Norwood, chair of the PAC committee. “It is time as a school community to give our arts program every opportunity to be just as successful.” The 37,000-square-foot Performing Arts Center will include a 600-seat theater with an orchestra pit, five practice rooms, a music room for Lower School students, a “drum pad,” classrooms for band and orchestra, a shop for the drama program to build sets and an expanded lobby that will give the school’s visual arts program another space in which to exhibit students’ work. The school’s 41-year-old auditorium will be torn down this summer. The Performing Arts Center will take its place. Construction is expected to last about a year and school officials hope the new
facility is completed for the start of the 2015-16 school year. While construction is going on, the school’s music and drama programs will hold performances and concerts elsewhere in the Greenville area, including Powdersville High and the Peace Center, Sims said. “We’re going to be performing elsewhere for a year, but it will be worth it,” he said. The school started an instrumental music program six years ago and the program is growing. Last year, the school started a mandatory music program in the fifth grade that requires students to choose an instrument and play it for a year. That program has already almost doubled the number of band students in the later grades, Sims said. “Sometimes it’s a matter of exposure,”
he said. In addition to the music program, the school’s drama program should benefit greatly from the new facility, Sims said. The school’s visual arts program won’t be getting any new classroom space, but a lobby that is triple the size of the current auditorium’s lobby will give the program a new space for exhibits, he said. Sims said he expects additional growth in the school’s fine arts program after construction is completed. “Once it’s built, I think the programs will get bigger and bigger,” he said. While the new facility will primarily serve CCES’ 1,150 students, the school will also offer the facility as a performing venue for the community, Sims said. McMillan Pazdan Smith is the architect and Triangle Construction is the contractor.

A new 25,000-square-foot facility under construction at the site where the old Armstrong Elementary School once stood will allow A Child’s Haven to double the number of children the nonprofit serves and minister to infants for the first time. A Child’s Haven is the county’s only comprehensive treatment program for young children who have social and emotional development delays or behavioral issues due to poverty, abuse and unintentional neglect. Fifty-one children aged two to five receive services at A Child’s Haven’s current facility on Rutherford Road. Satellite programs offered at the Riley Child Development Center and three Head Start facilities serve another 27 children. But that’s only a fraction of the children who need help. The Rutherford Road location does not allow for programs for children aged birth through two because the classrooms don’t have entrances leading outdoors as building codes require. The new facility will have space for a dozen infants and toddlers, said Debbie Roach, A Child’s Haven’s executive director. “Research shows that the sooner you can work with a child and their family, the better off they are,” Roach said. She said when the nonprofit works with a child and family simultaneously, younger siblings often benefit and similar developmental delays are avoided. Some of the children served by A Child’s Haven’s programs have been previously dismissed from preschool or kindergarten programs due to developmental or behavioral issues, Roach said.
Once in the program, 90 percent of children meet three-quarters of their developmental objectives. Ninety-six percent of children who go through the program are enrolled in mainstream classrooms, Roach said. A Child’s Haven takes a threepronged approach – a daily classroom setting led by teachers with experience in therapeutic interventions, intensive in-home guidance led by licensed counselors and parenting classes. “The first years of a child’s life are so critical,” Roach said. Plans originally called for the old Armstrong Elementary to be renovated. But further study found that the 45,000-square-foot school would be too big and it would be more cost-efficient and sustainable to tear the school down and build a new 25,000-squarefoot facility. The new facility at 20 Martin Drive will have a capacity of 100 students, Roach said. It will include a conference room, two therapy rooms, a large multipurpose room that can be divided, teacher workrooms and office space. More than half of Greenville County’s children under six who live in poverty live within a seven-mile radius of the site. “It is still one of the most underserved areas in Greenville,” Roach said. Construction should be completed in September. A Child’s Haven has raised all but $200,000 of the $5.5 million needed for construction and an endowment. The agency is selling personalized brick pavers to raise the rest of the money. The pavers are $100 and can include up to three lines of type. For an additional $25, a logo or monogram can be included. An online order form is available at achildshaven.org/our-campaign. The bricks will be installed as the facility, known as the Laura Kathleen Dobson building at the Tunky Riley Campus, is completed.

firstname.lastname@example.org Greenville is once again vying for a “best” award. This time it’s for the Best U.S. Cycling Town in the 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest sponsored by USA Today. “For our nominations, we went to none other than celebrated cyclist George Hincapie, a former world champion and national champion,” 10Best posted on its website. “He took into account the cycling cities he knows and loves; cities in which he’s competed; cities with conducive weather; cit-
ies generating great buzz in the cycling community; and the places attracting cyclists on a permanent basis.” Hincapie’s nominees include 20 cities across the country and are “a broad mix of Northern and Southern destinations: Some appeal more to competitive cyclists, while others draw recreational cyclists or mountain bikers.” The contest gives voters until noon Apr. 14 to vote. Participants are allowed one vote once per day, per category. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 16. Vote online at 10best.com/awards/ travel/best-u-s-cycling-town.

Med school head endows scholarship Youkey announces funds to attract top students APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
email@example.com Dr. Jerry Youkey, dean of the University of South Carolina (USC) School of Medicine Greenville, and his wife, Sharon, have established a scholarship fund for the fledg- Youkey ing medical school that the couple announced last week at the school’s Experience the Dream fundraiser. The Youkeys created an $800,000 scholarship fund that will support the education of five physicians over its course. The Experience the Dream event also raised $572,000 for the school. “As one of the nation’s newest med schools, we do what we can to help ‘seal the deal’ with the best of our applicants,” said Youkey. “We have their attention, but closure depends on our ability to offer them competitive scholarship support. And we won’t have loyal committed alumni able to help for at least another two or three decades.” Youkey, who helped with the development of the Upstate medical school, said he recalls working three jobs to pay for school as a medical student four decades ago, and costs have only increased. USC and Greenville Health System, where the school is based, have set aside 10 percent of tuition funds for scholarships. In addition, The Charles D. Walters Family Foundation and James T. Pearce Sr. and late wife Ellis “Kit” Pearce gave $1 million gifts in early fundraising. The school accepted its first class in 2012 and applications have increased each year. According to GHS, more than 2,700 students have applied for the 75 spots in the incoming class. “We must be competitive – or, despite the incredible facilities, the awesome technology and the extraordinary education and training we offer, we will not be the first choice of the most desirable applicants,” Youkey said.

THE BLOTTER BY SHERRY JACKSON
Fredrick Robert Kissling, Greenville County resident and owner of Dixie’s Tavern, was arrested on March 20, 2014, and charged with eight counts of tax evasion. SC Department of Revenue officials charged Kissling, 60, with four counts of evading payments on gross sales tax and four counts of evading payments on liquor by the drink excise tax. Kissling could face a fine of $80,000 or 40 years of imprisonment or both. For tax years 2009 through 2012, Kissling is accused of underreporting gross sales on his monthly sales tax returns and gross sales on his liquor by the drink tax returns, documents show. Kissling reportedly evaded payments totaling $80,252 of sales tax and liquor by the drink tax for tax years 2009 through 2012, documents show. Kissling is being held at the Greenville County Detention Center. Investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff ’s Office Homicide Unit have charged Sylvester Keejaun King, 45, with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Documents show an investigation led deputies to believe that King stabbed Janice Hackett, resulting in her death at her home on Rangeview Circle, off White Horse Road in Greenville. King has not yet been taken into custody, and the Greenville County Sheriff ’s Office is seeking the media and public’s assistance in locating him. He is believed to be in the Charlotte, NC area. Anyone with information regarding King’s whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME. Garrett Esser of Mauldin recently received $732,000 in a settlement with a trucking company for a 2011 accident in Abbeville County.
Birds are Scouting for Nests!
According to court documents, Esser was driving his 2001 Nissan on Highway 28 in Abbeville in the early morning of June 30, 2011, looking for a friend’s house on Lake Secession, when a semi-truck started passing him on the twolane road. He reportedly began a left-hand turn and a collision occurred. A dispute arose as to which party was at fault for making an improper lane change. Esser was transported to AnMed Medical Health Center in Anderson by helicopter. He suffered severe brain trauma and injury, documents show. Between March 22, 2014 and March 24, 2014, the Greenville County Sheriff ’s Office received reports of six armed robberies in Simpsonville and Greenville. In all of these incidents, the victims reported they were approached by individuals armed with handguns. The suspects stole handbags, credit cards, cash and other items, according to the Sheriff ’s report. Two suspects are now in custody. Ian Derrick-James Kinlow, 21, has been arrested and charged with five counts of armed robbery, five counts of conspiracy and one count Kinlow of assault and battery first degree. Donald Lamar Burton, 24, has been arrested and charged with six counts of armed robbery, six counts of conspiracy and two counts of assault and battery first degree Warrants have been issued for one additional subject, Nicholas Kendrick Williams, 19, wanted on five counts of armed robbery, six counts of conspiracy and three counts of assault and battery first degree.

Village Hospital renamed Pelham Medical Center Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System announced this week that Greer’s Village Hospital will now be known as Pelham Medical Center. Announced Monday, Spartanburg Regional officials said the change is due to new services on the site, including the Gibbs Cancer Center and Research Institute and the Medical Group of the Carolinas (formerly Spartanburg Regional Physician Group), a group of general care and specialist physicians. “As a part of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, this campus is a part of larger system. When we work as a team, we’re able to provide a full spectrum of services to our patients, not just in Greer, but also across the Upstate,” said Anthony Kouskolekas, president of Pelham Medical Center.

Inset: A mobile mammography coach from the Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health at St. Francis.
Pearlie Mae Suber Harris has traveled a long road from living on a plantation in North Carolina to longtime educator and honored volunteer. Harris sat down in her Mauldin home to talk about growing up a pastor’s daughter and taking over household duties at a young age. Born in 1936, Harris was one of four children, the only girl and daughter of Samuel Lester Suber, pastor of St. Matthew Baptist Church. She was born in Hendersonville, and the family also lived in Flat Rock, N.C., and Saluda, where Harris had to walk to school. “The kids from the white school always ‘rocked’ us; my father told us we couldn’t throw rocks back,” she said. Even if you were treated badly, you treat the other person nicely, she says he told them. Harris speaks frankly about growing up in the segregated South. “We lived in colored town … and then we were Negros, we were monkeys and coons,” she said. She recalled a near miss that almost got her brothers into trouble in a store with water fountains marked “colored” and “white.”
“I drank out of the one that said ‘white’ and that’s when a man came over and said, ‘You darkies get out of here.’ I drank out of that fountain because I thought the water in the other was colored,” she said.
FAITH INTO PRACTICE Harris said her father’s example and teaching had great influence on her. He put his faith into practice, sharing what the family did have. “We had a long front porch and we used to feed the chain gang from that porch. I asked why we did that and he said, ‘They’re God’s children, too.’” When she was 10 years old, Harris’ mother, Blandena Hawkins Suber, became very ill. As the only other woman of the house, Pearlie took over the cooking, cleaning and other chores. “I stayed home on Mondays and Fridays from school. On Mondays, I washed and ironed. On Friday, I got everything ready for the weekend until the truant officer came and picked me up. I was in no shape to be in school because I was worried about my mother eating for the rest of the day … even then, I was a worrier,” she said. HARRIS continued on PAGE 20

At about 12 years old, Pearlie began taking care of the children of the Ogden family, also cooking for another family every day. The Harrises also lived close to Carl Sandburg’s house. “I grew up with his daughters and played with them every Wednesday,” she said. When Harris graduated high school at age 16 in 1953, she attended Barber-Scotia College in Concord, N.C. With few career opportunities open to black women at the time, she had heard a family friend talking about a daughter going off to be a trained nurse, which she misheard as “train nurse.” “In my head, I thought the train nurse had the opportunity to ride on the train all the time. I thought I would love to do that,” she laughed. She opted to be an elementary school teacher instead, later attending Furman University for a master’s degree. Enrolling in college didn’t end Harris’ domestic service, however. After her freshman year, she began to work for the Simpson family, of Belk Simpson department store renown, doing all the household chores. “You know that book ‘The Help?’ That was me,” she said. She had to use the outdoor bathroom and slept in a damp basement, adding that her clothes always “smelled awful” – memories she recalls candidly and without anger. She also recounts how the Simpson family told her they had something for
her to use at college, which she thought would be a much-needed winter coat, but turned out to be her favorite car: a 1951 Cadillac Fleetwood. After graduation, Harris began her teaching career in 1957 in Beaufort, S.C., where she met James L. Harris, master gunnery sergeant in the Marine Corps. The couple married in 1961 and son Anthony Lewis was born in 1962. Their other son, Llewellyn James, was born in 1963. The family moved to Greenville, where Harris taught elementary grades and in the gifted program. One of her favorite grades to teach was third, she said. “They’ll do anything for you and they love to learn.” She taught handwriting and until retirement, required her students to use fountain pens, purchasing them for each student. Her husband passed away in 1987, and Harris still lives in the Mauldin home that they bought in 1971.
A NEW JOURNEY After her 1994 retirement, Harris embarked on a different focus: volunteering. “This was a journey I never thought about taking. I didn’t know what I was going to do after I retired, but I knew I wasn’t going to sit around,” she said. Her volunteer work started in a surprising way. While her children attended St. Mary’s Catholic School, she sang in the church choir and was lector. There she

was introduced to Sam Francis, who invited her to meet him out in front of St. Francis Hospital one day. She agreed, and Francis introduced her to the hospital’s volunteer director. “You’re going to volunteer,” Harris said he told her, “and I said, ‘I am?’ They put me to work that very day.” She worked the front desk and also did work for St. Mary’s fundraisers. “When Sam asked you for something, you did it,” she said. By 1996, Harris began serving on the St. Francis Internal Review Board (IRB). Four years later, she became a board member and then was elected chair of the 18-member group, the first woman and African-American to hold the post. She called it a “big shock,” but a friend reminded her that she had managed the more than 30-person Mardi Gras board for St. Mary’s. Harris said many people supported her and helped move her toward that next step in service. To date, she’s served on nearly 20 boards. In 2011, the Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health at St. Francis was named in her honor. Harris said it made her proud when someone told her, “‘I’m so glad these people want you for who you are and not the money you have.’”
BEST ADVICE: Harris’ parents gave her the best advice, in rhyming form, she said. “Whether a task is large or small, do it well or not at all,” and “True friends are like diamonds, precious and rare. False friends like oak leaves, found everywhere.”
PLAYING WITH THE BOYS: In
elementary school, Harris loved to play marbles with the boys, and still loves marbles to this day. However, when she came home with the spoils of victory – a lunch pail brimming with the glass orbs – her father made her return the winnings.
Assessing the reward is simple, she said. “How does it look? What does it feel like? Did you make any progress? Did you touch somebody’s life? The giving that you gave, did it mean something for somebody else and not for you?” From once being called “Ugly Pearlie” in school, Harris is comfortable with who she has become. “I’m not concerned about what people think about me. It’s not my business what they think about me. My greatest achievement was becoming me. I found myself.”

Being freshwater friendly helps the environment and saves our water. Like Thomas Fuller once said “We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.” If we don’t watch out our water could become polluted and we wouldn’t be able to use water like we do right now. Pet waste is a slight cause to pollution of water, as well as lawn fertilizers and washing your car on your driveway. Poop Etiquette Pet Waste is not what people usually talk about and they don’t think it is a major thing that pollutes the environment, though it does. Unscooped pet waste contains things such as nitrogen, phosphorous, fecal bacteria and parasites that can be washed down, by rain, into bodies of water. To keep the water clean please pick up your pets waste, like you are supposed to. Curb Control When washing your car with soap and water, getting all that dirt off of your car, the water is mixed with soap goes down your curb and down into the storm drains. Storm drains aren’t usually ﬁltered, and is just deposited into the lakes, rivers and streams. To help not pollute lakes and rivers even more than they are polluted right now, use soap and cleaning products sparingly and use a hose with a trigger

nozzle. To not let most of the pollutants pollute our lakes and rivers wash your car on your lawn, the grass will ﬁlter the dirty water. Yard Savvy Lawn fertilizers do contain nitrogen and phosphorus and those two things are major pollutants. Those two pollutants lower oxygen in our waterways and they have a negative impact on aquatic life. Some people’s lawns don’t even need fertilizers, so test your lawn to see if it does need fertilizer. When buying fertilizer look for fertilizer with low concentration. The END? All these three things, pet waste, lawn fertilizer and car washes, pollute the water we take for granted. However you can help to save water by doing all the things that were talked about in the paragraphs before. I will be trying to do these things at my home. To get more information go toReWaOnline.org or BeFreshWaterFriendly.org. The 6th graders at the GREEN Charter School were invited to participate in a “Be Freshwater Friendly” essay contest sponsored by Renewable Water Resources. The content above is an excerpt from Joseph’s winning essay.
With multiple new breweries opening within the last year and brewery fixture Thomas Creek expanding its operations, the business of brew is doing well in the Upstate. To celebrate the impact of craft beer and introduce residents to the burgeoning movement, the first Greenville Craft Beer Week will offer up events that showcase beer styles, brew masters, local producers and purveyors daily from March 31 through April 6. Events range from a yoga workout followed by a pint and a beer brunch to a food truck rodeo and meet-the-brewer events. “Why not Greenville?” Brook Bristow said he and fellow craft beer enthusiast Vance Arthurs thought when talk of a craft brew week came up. Bristow, a lawyer who represents breweries, authored the bill that began last year’s state law allowing breweries to serve fullsized pints on premises. “Greenville has seen such growth in craft beer, we should have a week to celebrate,” he said. In addition to simply sampling the diverse brews, Greenville Craft Beer Week participants may attend educational events, including Beer School at Thomas Creek and a U.S. Craft Beer 101 seminar at the Growler Station. Bristow said the events are a chance to “knock down preconceptions about beer” and educate attendees about the growing popularity of craft beer. Several events will also involve cuisine and beer. “It’s not just wine that pairs well with food,” Bristow said. Though he will be attending most events, Bristow said he will definitely be present for the Quest Brewing and Terrapin Collaboration Beer Release on April 3, which also kicks off Quest’s weekly concert series. The inaugural Greenville Craft Beer Week is expected to not only draw in the locals, but hopefully garner attendees from Asheville, Columbia and Charleston, Bristow said. Organizers hope to make the brew celebration a yearly one.

Mill Village Farms expands, adds partners SHERRY JACKSON | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org Mill Village Farms, a local nonprofit organization that educates teens in basic job skills, sustainable agriculture, and entrepreneurship, announced this week new partnerships with The Farm at Rabon Creek and the Swamp Rabbit Café and a fundraiser with Tupelo Honey Café. Partnering with the Farm at Rabon Creek – an 80acre farm in Fountain Inn – will allow Mill Village Farms to expand to include livestock, special events, school field trips and a Farm Fresh Fair in September, said Dan Weidenbenner, Mill Village Farms director. The partnership will also allow for the budding organization to grow even more food and create opportunities for local area youth, he said. “Mill Village Farms’ partnership with Rabon Creek is really a game-changer for our organization,” Weidenbenner said. “It allows us to raise livestock, which will add beef, lamb and pork to our market. It also allows us to host special events and private parties for those wanting a casual farm party or wedding. Most importantly, it allows us to greatly expand our opportunities to teach and employ youth in the community. “ The Farm at Rabon Creek will also host a Tupelo Honey Café Farm Dinner on May 17, 2014, as a fundraiser for the organization. Tupelo Honey will be
preparing scratch-made plates from their newly published cookbook, organizers said. The event will include live music, libations and transportation from downtown Greenville. Weidenbenner said the goal is to raise more than $10,000 to “help us grow tenfold. We hope to get 100 people to join at $100 per ticket to raise $10,000.” The funds will allow the organization to provide 10 more opportunities for youth to be a part of the next growing season. “100 percent of the ticket costs benefits Mill Village Farms,” he said. Mill Village Farms also announced that they will be partnering with Swamp Rabbit Café and Grocery to expand their Good to Go Mobile Farmer’s Market to include freshly baked treats and local farm goods. The market will be traveling to various food-desert communities of Greenville on Saturdays and to Greer and Simpsonville communities on Wednesdays, he said. The schedule will be released in early May. Mill Village Farms began in 2012 in the Greater Sullivan neighborhood, just outside of downtown Greenville with a mission to transform communities through fresh foods and developing successful youth. The organization made a video to the tune of Pharrell Williams’s song “Happy,” which features “happy dances” from their newest farm animals and from special guests at Tupelo Honey Café, CertusBank and Swamp Rabbit Café & Grocery.

Highway 11 in Oconee County. A 60foot waterfall at the end of the trail is a bonus for making the easy half-mile hike. Among the wildflowers most likely to be seen are trillium, violet, mayapple, hepatica and bloodroot.
DEVIL’S FORK STATE PARK
Devil’s Fork State Park is one of the prime locations for the Oconee Bell, which are found in only seven counties in the Carolinas and Georgia. The endangered species has a solitary white to pinkish bell-shaped flower and can be spotted in moist woods along streams. They bloom in mid-March until early April. The easiest place to see them is on the Oconee Bells Nature Trail, a one-mile loop trail in Devil’s Fork State Park in northern Oconee County.

Located on Oak Grove Road in northern Greenville County, Chestnut Ridge Heritage Preserve is one of the best spring wildflower hikes in the Upstate. Several waterfalls just add to the attraction. The first mile of Chestnut Ridge, owned and managed by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, is an easy stroll through the woods. The second mile has a large display of toadshade trillium and bloodroot.
STATION COVE FALLS
In March, April and May, it is difficult to walk in Station Cove without stepping on a wildflower. The Station Cove Falls Trail begins near the Oconee Station State Historic Site off

SPRING OPEN HOUSE
Winter is reluctant to give up its grip on the Upstate, but the reward for surviving its stark gray days and cold temperatures is emerging in parts of the region in the familiar form of wildflowers. Spring ephemerals have begun their colorful show in the Upstate. The rarest of all – the Oconee Bells – are now in bloom and will disappear in early April. But others will take their place before giving way to showy flowering trees and shrubs in May and June and ending with a wash of goldenrods and asters in September and October. The Upstate has several prime wildflower locations – and if you don’t get your fill here, several more can be found within an hour’s drive of Greenville across the North Carolina border.
Near Saluda, N.C., Pearson’s Falls is one of the better short wildflower hikes within an hour’s drive of Greenville. The Tryon Garden Club purchased Pearson’s Falls and the surrounding glen in 1931. Wildflowers can be found from March until October, but midApril is best. The one-third mile path offers a delightful – and easy – hike to a scenic waterfall. Along the way, visitors are likely to see bloodroot, punctatum, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Solomon’s seal, foamflower, trillium, sharp-lobed hepatica, sweet Betsy and American alumroot.
STEVENS CREEK HERITAGE PRESERVE
While it will take about an hour and half to get to the Stevens Creek Heritage Preserve from Greenville, it is well worth the trip, especially in the spring. The preserve, which is in McCormick County near Lake Thurmond in Modoc, is home to 15 rare plant species, including the Florida or Miccosukee gooseberry, a small, perennial shrub that is found only here and Lake Miccosukee in Florida and is listed as threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The preserve, which is owned by the state Department of Natural Resources, is also home to Webster’s salamander, a secretive
The healing power of honey JEANNE PUTNAM | CONTRIBUTOR

With spring coming into full bloom, allergy season has arrived. However, before reaching for the antihistamines, allergy suffers may want to consider the benefits of local honey. “Many people use local honey to treat allergies,” said Tim Dover of the Carolina Honey Bee Company. “A lot of allergists are sending people to my store to buy local honey.” The allergists instruct patients to eat a spoonful of local honey every day to develop a tolerance for local allergens – the equivalent of getting an allergy shot a day, he said. Because of their physicians’ advice, Dover has customers who purchase honey from him and swear by it. Dover also recommends that his customers eat the honeycomb, which contains more pollen and helps build up the immune system to handle the local pollen. Charlotte Anderson of Carolina Honeybees Farm, a South Carolina master beekeeper for eight years, said some of her customers have found the same relief from seasonal allergies “even though there are no scientific studies to confirm it.” “I sincerely believe there is no magic number for how ‘local’ honey should be,” she said. “I would suggest that first and foremost the honey should be raw. Second, it should not have been overheated or over-filtered, so purchase
Honeybees at work.
from your local beekeeper rather than large stores.” Any raw honey that comes from an area “with the same blooming trees and plants that you have in your area should be fine, whether that area is two miles away or 100,” Anderson said. Besides treating seasonal allergies, both Dover and Anderson say that honey can serve as a natural healer for cuts, similar to Neosporin ointment. “In third-world countries, people would put it on cuts and scratches to treat it,” said Dover. Both he and Anderson have used honey to dress wounds. Dover said burn centers will use honey to help with wound healing, and there is a lot of use in Africa and the Caribbean to reduce scarring.

ASHMORE HERITAGE PRESERVE
Ashmore Heritage Preserve, off Persimmon Ridge Road between Jones Gap and Caesar’s Head state parks in Greenville County, is part of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness and is a must-see in the spring. It is home to rare plants such as Indian Paint Brush, grass of Parnassus and Piedmont ragwort. It is also home to a natural bog that contains orchids, sundews and ferns. The fire-dependent, and rare, turkeybeard grows on two of its pinedominated ridges.

The North Carolina section of the Blue Ridge Parkway is home to a wide variety of wildflowers that bloom from early spring all the way into October. The nice part is visitors don’t have to walk more than a few yards from the car. For those who want to be a bit

more adventurous, the parkway offers several hikes worth the extra effort. The Price Lake trail in Julian Price Memorial Park is abundant with painted trillium the first half of May. The Tanawha trail beginning at the Linn Cove Visitor’s Center has turkeybeard and mountain laurel peaking in mid-June. In July and August, Frying Pan Mountain will give respite from the Upstate’s heat. Joe-Pye weed attracts hordes of butterflies, and a climb up the fire tower will yield an unobstructed 360-degree view.

Laurens Electric offers golfers shot at $1 million “There have been a lot of changes since the creation of Laurens Electric Cooperative back in 1939, but one thing that has not changed is our commitment to the communities we serve,” said J. David Wasson, Jr., Laurens Electric Cooperative President and CEO.
Come to the Eagle Zone Golf Improvement Center on Pelham Road in Greenville Friday, April 25 & Saturday, April 26 for a chance to win $1 million in Laurens Electric Cooperative’s and Touchstone Energy’s® 12th Annual Hole In One Shootout. All proceeds from the event will benefit the co-op’s 75 Acts of Kindness community initiative. 10 players will qualify each day by being closest to the pin to compete in the finals, when participants have a chance of winning one million dollars by shooting a hole-in-one. Qualifying times are Friday, April 25 from 9 a.m.– 9 p.m. and Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m.– 5 p.m. The finals will follow on Saturday at 6 p.m.
“We decided that the best way to celebrate our 75 year history is to give back to those communities.”
Event proceeds to benefit 75 Acts of Kindness community initiative
Other prizes include $500 each day to golfers with shots closest to the pin, and during the finals, $1000 to the golfer closest to the pin, $500 for the second closest, and $250 to third. Laurens Electric is dedicated to improving the quality of life of the citizens in the upstate and in the communities the cooperative serves. All proceeds from the Hole In One Shootout will benefit the co-op’s 75 Acts of Kindness community initiative in recognition of its 75th anniversary in 2014. Throughout the year the cooperative will award up to $500 for specific projects or needs to 75 different recipients, totaling nearly $40,000.
Every dollar spent at the hole-in-one event is a dollar that will go to support 75 Acts of Kindness; it’s a fantastic way to contribute to the community and have a great time in the process. For more information about 75 Acts of Kindness, visit the co-op’s web site at www.laurenselectric.com.
Laurens Electric Cooperative, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative serves 53,000 member-owners in Laurens, Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Newberry, Union and Abbeville counties.

FLASHDANCE THE MUSICAL “An astonishing musical spectacle.” -Atlanta Journal Constitution Tuesday-Sunday, April 22-27 FlashdanceTheMusical.com Mike Gallagher, standing, as Max Bialystock and Todd Weir as Leo Bloom in the Centre Stage production of “The Producers.”
Mike Gallagher, Todd Weir reunite on stage in “The Producers” CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
email@example.com Sometimes when Centre Stage executive and artistic director Glenda ManWaring picks a show for the theater’s schedule, the perfect actors for the lead parts instantly leap to mind. That’s what happened with Centre Stage’s current performance, “The Producers.” Although the show wasn’t pre-cast, ManWaring thought it would be a perfect chance to reunite nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mike Gallagher and Todd Weir in one of the
theater’s Main Stage shows. The pair had starred in Centre Stage’s 2011 production of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” one of the first big musicals at Centre Stage and ManWaring’s directing debut at the theater. “They really work well together,” ManWaring said of Gallagher and Weir. “They are two completely different types of actors. Their strengths work well together.” It didn’t hurt that “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” was a box office hit exactly when Centre Stage needed it the most. The show sold out most nights and ManWaring would have held it over if she could.
“With ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,’ I wanted to bring in a celebrity to give Centre Stage a shot in the arm,” ManWaring said, “and when I thought about it, Mike was perfect. He’s a great actor with a following. People know him. And it was a show he always wanted to do.” But Gallagher’s star power wasn’t the attraction this time. It was the chemistry between him and Weir. “‘The Producers’ has such iconic characters that I knew we could fill with local talent – and Mike is local talent,” ManWaring said. The play tells the story of a down-on-

his-luck Broadway producer, Max Bialystock, and a nerdy accountant, Leo Bloom, who hatch a plan to raise more money than they need to produce the biggest flop Broadway has ever seen. They produce a musical called “Springtime for Hitler” written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebkind, get the flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct and hire the loopy Swedish bombshell Ulla (with a last name lugging over 15 syllables) to star. What could go wrong? Everything, in comedic Mel Brooks fashion. ManWaring said when it came to casting Leo Bloom, she could think of nobody but Weir to play the part. Gallagher was the first name she thought of when it came to casting Max. “Leo has a lot of layers, insecurities and issues. He is crazy immature,” ManWaring said. “Leo is your anomaly. It’s the hardest character to cast. Sometimes actors can do comedic roles but are not good at playing straight roles, and vice versa. Todd’s a versatile actor. He can do both.” Weir brings that talent and his creativity to a role, ManWaring said. “He’s got the ability to explore the core of a character and explore on his own. With Todd, in early and mid-rehearsals, a scene is never the same way twice. He tries things that are completely different.” Gallagher, on the other hand, is a

director’s actor, ManWaring said. “He wants you to direct every aspect of a character and how that character is developed,” she said. “Mike is the grounding force in a scene. He puts it all out there and that works for the role of Max.” The contrast in styles helps to complete the scenes and bring wonderful energy to each, ManWaring said – a sentiment regarding his costar that Weir shared. “We complement each other well,” Weir said. “We bring different strengths to the process. We really feed off each other.” ManWaring agreed, saying, “There’s a chemistry between them. You can see they are having so much fun with each other every night in every scene. You
can’t fake that.” It’s a chemistry that developed long before “The Producers” or even “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” but way back when the pair appeared in the Greenville Little Theatre’s 1993 production of “Guys and Dolls.” While Gallagher and Weir are garnering the most headlines as the lead characters, the ensemble is what makes Centre Stage’s production of “The Producers” so successful, ManWaring said. “It’s one of the most talented ensembles we’ve had,” she said of the cast of two dozen. “It’s a huge part of the show. The key is it’s a big enough ensemble, but it’s not too big for our stage. It gives the feel of a big Broadway show in a small theater.”

Saturday’s “Look! Through My Eyes” exhibit hosted by Family Connection is more about changing perceptions than the photography itself. “Look! Through My Eyes” features 20 photographs taken by children and young adults with special healthcare needs who were paired with local photographers – both professional and amateur. “Photographs have a powerful way of bringing people together, creating discussion and inspiring change,” said Susie Wallace, Family Connection’s Greenville area co-coordinator. Saturday’s photography exhibition will be held at the Children’s Museum of the Upstate. “Look!” is designed to celebrate the beauty, strength and potential of people with special needs, Wallace said. “It’s really for people to look and see with their hearts,” she said. “Sometimes, we’re taught not to see. This exhibit is designed to show that when they have a camera in their hands, everybody’s the same. There are no wheelchairs, no disabilities. Its just people.” Jen Patton, photography teacher at St. Joseph’s Catholic School, worked with three of the photographers with images in the exhibition, including Amanda Marlow, who photographed her dolls in a public park. Marlow’s mother served as her photographic assistant, placing the dolls in the spots where the soon-tobe 33-year-old pointed. “One of my favorite photographers, Ansel Adams, once said there are two people in every photograph, the photographer and the viewer,” Patton said. “This is a really good example.” The other photographers she worked with took images of their grandfather and their dog. “They photographed what they love and they photographed them fearlessly,” Patton said. Susan Moran thought she was meeting Rachel Lewis at the YMCA pool to help her take photographs of what she loves – swimming – to give others a small glimpse of her world. “I couldn’t have been more wrong,” she said. “For three hours, Rachel and I were best friends. I learned a lot about Rachel in those three hours, but
Amanda Marlow with her camera.
I learned a lot about me, too.” While working with Rachel, Moran learned the young adult loves to swim – and that she has the Special Olympic medals to prove her flawless backstroke. But Rachel wasn’t interested in talking about her medals, Moran said. She wanted to take photographs of her flippers, the water, the waves, Moran said. This is the second year of Family Connection’s “Look!” photography exhibition. Photographs from last year’s event, “Look! I’m Just Being a Kid,” will also be on display. “We hope the exhibition changes impressions of what those with special needs can do,” Wallace said. “Changing assumptions and perceptions comes first. Eventually, that leads to changing policy.” Other events on Saturday will include “Keys to Friendship,” a disability simulation presented by the Mauldin High Teacher Cadets, and “The Young Adults Social” in the museum’s café. All event attendees will receive “The LOOK! And LEARN” Parent’s Guide to Resources, Greenville’s first comprehensive guide to special-needs resources, compiled by Family Connection.

Brett tells a feathered fairy tale Noted children’s authorillustrator turns Cinderella into a chicken story CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
Noted children’s author and illustrator Jan Brett combined two of her loves – chickens and travel – for her unique take on the classic fairy tale “Cinderella.” Brett (who owns a flock of award-winning ornamental chickens) was talking with her editor one day when the conversation turned to chickens and what characters they can be. The editor told Brett how one of her neighbor’s beautiful Cochins was being picked on by two bossy hens. The women immediately said together, “Cinderella.” And Brett, who loves the snow and winter, immediately knew she wanted to set her version of “Cinderella” in Russia, a country with a strong folkloric tradition to which she had never been. So Brett, who is known for taking extensive research trips so the illustrations in her books are filled with realism, went to St. Petersburg with her husband, Joe. “Travel is a constant source of inspiration,” she said. Next week, Brett – a No. 1 New York
Times best-selling author with more than 38 million books in print – will travel to Greenville. On Tuesday, she will visit Oakview Elementary, an experience the Greenville County elementary school won through a contest on the author’s Facebook page. On Wednesday, Brett will conduct an illustration demonstration and book signing at the Upcountry History Museum beginning at 6 p.m. The museum is hosting an exhibit of Brett’s original artwork through May 4. Brett’s books are on the shelves of virtually every public library and elementary school library in the country. The feathered inspiration for “Cinders: A Chicken Cinderella” goes back years. Brett grew up near Boston, where her family had a horse, guinea pigs, donkeys and chickens. When she was 8, she had a chicken that rode on the handlebars of her bike. “Cinders: A Chicken Cinderella,” written for children ages 3 to 5, tells the tale of Cinders, the most picked-upon hen in the flock. After a transformation by her Sikie Godmother, Cinders becomes the belle of Prince Cockerel’s ball. The transformation is so big that even Cin-

Going Postal John Durham leads an eclectic ensemble in tribute to a favorite album PHOTO COURTESY OF J. SCOTT SHRADER
I’ve spoken with guitarist/bandleader John Durham several times over the last two years, twice after successful events at The Handlebar. In 2013, Durham organized a packed tribute to Pink Floyd’s classic 1973 album “The Dark Side of the Moon,” with an ensemble of Upstate musicians re-creating the album track for track. And earlier this year, he put on a sold-out show based on the Beatles 1968 self-titled WHO: John Durham & Friends double album (commonly known as the White Album). WHAT: “Nothing Better: A Celebration of The Postal Service” Both times I’ve spoken to him after WHERE: Independent Public Alehouse, the shows, Durham has been careful 110 Poinsett Hwy., Greenville about giving credit to the other muWHEN: Friday, March 28, 8 p.m. sicians involved, reluctant to accept any praise, and quick about what he INFORMATION: 864-552-1265 or ipagreenville.com learned and what mistakes he wouldn’t make again at the next show, which he inevitably had already started planning. So perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised when John emailed me the day after the White Album show about his next project. And perhaps it also shouldn’t be a surprise that, after two huge shows involving classic rock icons and ensembles of up to 20 musicians, he’s decided to scale down a bit. This time, at the Independent Public Ale House on March 28, Durham will assemble a small group to pay tribute to one of his personal favorite albums, The Postal Service’s acclaimed 2003 album “Give Up.” The group will consist of Durham, drummer Rob Crouch, bassist Neil Alexander, singer/cellist Sarah Clanton Schaffer, singer/ guitarist Todd Bates, trombone player Brad Jepson and vocalist Chelsea Ashford. The Postal Service was a collaborative effort between Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard and Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello, and they only produced one album. “This show is going to be so much smaller,” Durham says. “It’s just really close to my heart. And I wanted to do something a little newer with a smaller ensemble, in a little more laid-back setting. The ‘Dark Side’ show and the ‘White Album’ show were big shows, where it was about getting 20 or more people together to play these classic songs. And this one I wanted to be more low-key.” Doing the album “low-key” presented some problems. “As I got into the album, I realized that a lot of the songs don’t really lend themselves to a stripped-down approach,” Durham says. “So we added people. Rob has always been a good team player. He did great work on the ‘Dark Side’ and ‘White Album’ shows. He’s someone I can trust. And Sarah’s a very talented musician, and this was an opportunity for us to work together on songs we both loved.” For Schaffer’s part, she was thrilled to work on songs she loved, as well. “This is one of my favorite records of all time,” she says. “When I was in college, I listened to it all the time. So it’s very nostalgic for me. So when he asked me to do it, I said yes immediately. I guess not everybody knows about it, and I don’t know why it struck me, but when an album clicks with you it really clicks with you. It takes me back to the time when I had just started playing open-mic nights, and coming out of the classical music world.” Both Durham and Schaffer are happy with the venue choice, hoping that the smaller concert area with translate to a more intimate experience. “In a smaller environment it’ll be easier for people to listen to it and become engaged with it, even if it’s something they’re not familiar with,” Schaffer says. Added Durham, “We really wanted a smaller room; something that was applicable to the show. It’s a niche album, even though the people who do know about it have a really strong connection to it.”

THE SYMPTOMS BY ASHLEY HOLT
The big freeze Certain ideas just seem to come out of nowhere when I first wake up in the morning. I rise from the depths of slumber, rubbing my swollen eyelids, and suddenly think to myself, “Is Kitty Carlisle still alive?” And then I can’t get on with my day until I’ve Googled. Other times a random song is inexplicably delivered unto me at this early hour. For years this was “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” a song I haven’t heard since it was first released, yet can sing from start to finish (just ask next time you see me). Other “first thoughts” of the day might include “How does Uri Geller eat soup?,” the phrase “elongated stucco buckles,” or a deep longing to visit the set of “Family Affair.” These thoughts are like a last-second jump shot from the subconscious, hitting my waking mind just before the buzzer. And on this particular day a few months back, the random thought that occurred to me upon waking was, “I want an Icee.” I focused on this impulse a bit, letting it clarify in my mind, and realized that no, I NEEDED an Icee. And I needed it today. An Icee, for the culturally deprived, is a frozen beverage consisting of crushed ice, syrup and a blast of CO2 carbonation. It’s dispensed in neon colors from a refrigerated Icee machine by disgruntled, third-shift clerks at Stop-N-Go, Quick Stop, Fast Fuel or many other convenience stores with names that encourage your hasty exit. Shoplifting frequently in just such convenience stores throughout my childhood, it’s fair to say I was raised on
Icees. They were the traditional victory drinks after a successful Little League game, a handy method of pacifying whiny tykes during a long car ride, and the logical result of having “found” 68 cents on your sister’s bedside table. I lay in bed that morning, remembering this artificially flavored concoction fondly. I wanted another hit. But it had been a long time since I had even thought of Icees. Did they even exist anymore? Panic set in. It wasn’t that I couldn’t live without slurping an Icee again, but I wasn’t sure I could live in a world where Icees were no longer available. The integrity of America itself was riding on this. What were all those missile defense programs and firefights in Southeast Asia for if not to keep the flow of Icee on tap? What represents the purity of the American dream more than the liberal distribution of corn syrup and Red Dye No. 2? I had to know that Icees were still out there, that America was still strong. To my delight, I discovered the momand-pop store down the road was advertising Icees, so I went in to investigate. What I found there was an Icee-brand “slushie,” a generic vat of crushed ice floating in snow cone syrup, with no carbonation. This was not an Icee. But it occurred to me that perhaps that was all that was left of the once-noble Icee brand. Maybe the kids of today would have no connection with the true legacy of the Icee and all that it represented. They would think THIS syrupy gunk was what I’ve been rhapsodizing all these years, just
like they get confused about the real “Clash of the Titans.” This may seem like a lot of fuss over a trashy junk food item, but you know as well as I that junk culture is what binds our generation together. We do not connect through shared remembrance of traditional foods cooked by native grandmothers or ceremonial dances of springtime. Our shared cultural heritage is “Speed Buggy.” Our nostalgia for home and hearth includes Pop Rocks, Space Invaders, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Smurfs and Shasta. We grew up in a branded culture, and we reestablish contact with our youth by sorting through the debris of antique consumption. Tell me you don’t get giddy just thinking about Bubblicious. The trouble is that junk ain’t what it used to be. Like other pathetic Gen Xers, I get excited about the seasonal reappearance of Frankenberry on the store shelves, and impulsively purchase a box. But tasting the cereal again, hoping to be magically transformed to the breakfast table of yesteryear, I find something is vaguely wrong with the experience. The taste isn’t the same. The corn syrup kick I’m expecting feels bland. It’s an artificial version of the artificial flavor we remember. It WANTS to be Frankenberry, but like the monster for which it’s named, it had been resurrected from the dead and rebuilt too many times to have its original impact. The same goes for McDonald’s fries, Mountain Dew or an REO Speedwagon reunion tour. We can’t even depend on garbage to be the garbage we remember. I suppose it’s a pretty sad commentary on our culture that we place such emotional value on Skittles and Big Macs, but such is our TV-addled condi-
tioning. In fact, this is no soapbox I’m ranting from, but a Beanie Babies collector’s case. I’ve learned over the years to accept these nostalgic attachments to Big Boy and Captain Crunch as very real. For some of us, Aunt Jemima was the only family member who provided unconditional love (she only once politely suggested I attend military school, then never brought it up again). We can’t depend on our drunken parents; we should feel secure in our Fruit RollUps. And so maybe you can understand my quest for the Icee, and my great relief when I finally discovered that the beverage was still widely available (Burger King and Target stores, for those who share my juvenile craving). Better yet, the drink was exactly as I remembered it: fizzy, revoltingly sweet, and inducing a brain freeze which temporarily blinded me. It brought back a flood of childhood memories: wetting my pants in kindergarten, setting fire to the couch, getting stung by a swarm of angry bees – all of them “Icee moments.” I felt great relief in knowing that the Icee brand was still alive, and still providing the direct link to the comforting garbage consumption of our collective, brainless youth. Because this is something we all have within us, this internal reservoir of feel-good pop-culture nostalgia. Which is why you’ve had “Let’s Hear It for the Boy” in your head this whole time.
