TO FINE ARTS CENTER DIRECTOR Roy Fluhrer, a piece of great architecture is as overwhelming as a great piece of art. They both use the same elements, he says. A building sculpts space, time, spirit and imagination, using color and form like a painting, adding in elements of music and theater. “Architecture is fine art,” he said.
It is also the Fine Arts Center’s newest program, created in collaboration with Clemson University’s top-ranked architecture school. The FAC “Art of Architecture” program is believed to be the first in the country in which a student studying architecture in high school can earn credits in a premier college architectural program. Students who gain acceptance into Clemson’s architecture school can carry forward up to eight architecture credits earned at the FAC. FAC continued on PAGE 8

formation leading to the arrest of anyone involved. For Clemson students and alumni, the rock is a strong symbol of the school’s past and an iconic image for photographs. Made of white flint, Howard’s Rock has stood on top of the football stadium section known as “The Hill” since 1966. But the rock gained its name after coach Frank Howard told his players that only after defeating Wake Forest would they have the right to touch the rock. Now at every home game, the players touch the rock as they run down onto the field, remembering that they have to give that “110 percent” to earn the right to touch the rock again.

A cyclist makes his way down River Street in Greenville using the bike lane.
Connecting the county by 2 wheels or 2 feet BikeWalk Greenville allows residents to suggest bike lane and sidewalk locations APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
email@example.com In order to form a more connected community, Greenville County residents now have the means to use their own online connectivity to offer input on where they would like to see more two-footed or two-wheeled transportation paths. Launched in early June, a new online tool created for BikeWalkGreenville by software engineer and cyclist Mike Nice allows community members to tag stretches of road they believe are in need of sidewalks, bike lanes, or other forms of pedestrian safety. In just a few weeks and with little exposure, more than 150 entries have already been logged, said Frank Mansbach, a volunteer with the group. Suggestions have poured in from across the county, from downtown Greenville and Woodruff Road to Marietta and Scuffletown Road. Nice is a former mountain biker and now GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail rider. He can ride in his neighborhood, he says, but can’t connect to other areas because there are no safe ways to get there on his bike. Creating maps has been a hobby for years, so Nice created an inter-
active map for BikeWalkGreenville. Users can find a street or intersection that interests them and draw a line where they would like to see an improvement, either for cyclists or pedestrians. They can also add a description. Since the tool has only been active a few weeks, a single “hot spot” has not yet emerged, Nice said, but he hopes to eventually develop a site that will show users all of the suggestions made. BikeWalkGreenville’s goal is to increase awareness of the need for alternative transportation options. Mansbach says the group wants to urge Greenville County Council’s support of sidewalks and bike lanes, as the majority of roadways in the county are not city streets. BikeWalkGreenville is partnering with other like-minded organizations in this goal, including the Greenville Spinners and LiveWell Greenville, he said. Nice said he hopes the information gathered with the mapping tool will offer guidance to city and county officials when money becomes available for road maintenance or improvements at the flagged locations. Other cycling groups in areas beyond the Upstate are also interested in the software, he said.

OPINION VOICES FROM YOUR COMMUNITY, HEARD HERE
FROM THE EDITORIAL DESK
A beginner forever Requiring motorcycle riders to take – but never to pass – a skills test is not a safety advance. In the sort of logic that endears the Palmetto State to late-night comedians, new rules took effect this month that require motorcyclists to take a skills test when they renew their beginner’s permits – but if they fail, it won’t matter. They still get the permit, with no limits other than the “daylight only” restriction they faced before. In fact, they never have to pass a road test at all, or get a full motorcycle license, or even take a motorcycle education program, though the state encourages it. As long as they make a “bona fide attempt” to pass the skills test each time they renew, these aptitude-impaired bikers can ride on a beginner’s permit for the rest of their days. And the state considers this progress. Prior to this safety advance, anyone of legal age could ride in perpetuity on a learner’s permit without applying for a full license or facing a road test on a DMV course. It finally dawned on the state Department of Motor Vehicles that, absent a skills test, “we don’t know if they are truly capable of operating a motorcycle,” executive director Kevin Shwedo admitted to reporters in announcing the new rules earlier this month. Apparently the DMV noticed that large numbers of bikers were abusing the licensing system, which grants a beginner’s permit to anyone 15 or older who can pass a vision test and multiple-choice written test. Technically, the state expects beginner permit holders to apply for a full license within the first year the permit is issued. They can start taking the road test after six months. But a lot never do. By DMV estimates, at least 30 percent of the 112,000 motorcycles registered in the state are operated by bikers riding on beginner permits. Shwedo said some have been renewed dozens of times, telling the SC Radio Network the agency discovered one biker who “had been operating on a beginner’s permit consistently since 1992.” The consequences can be deadly, as the DMV acknowledges: 36 percent of the state’s motorcycle deaths since January 2011 have involved drivers holding beginner’s permits or an expired or suspended license. Meanwhile, fatalities are climbing: The Governor’s Highway Safety Association reported in May that motorcycle deaths in the state are up 11 percent since 2011, with 113 confirmed by September of last year. The average age at death was 41, the DMV said; the oldest killed in 2011 was 79. It’s good news that the DMV now admits that allowing bikers to ride 20 years without a road test is a dereliction – but putting no limit on the number of times they can fail the test and keep riding is worse. Shwedo has admitted as much, telling the (Hilton Head) Island Packet if riders “can’t operate their bike after a year or two of practice, they don’t need to be on the road at all.” Even the most skilled motorcyclists are 34 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle crash than car occupants. Shwedo is right: if riders can’t pass a skills test after two attempts – and that’s generous – they need to be off the road until they do.
Hospice’s role in Medicare reform The last seven months have been a roller coaster of economic and political uncertainty. Medicare costs have incrementally risen over the past decade and, among other causes, have added to the national debt. With government funding cuts aimed at lowering the deficit in progress and even more looming in the future, Congress has proposed cutting funding from Medicare in an effort to lower the national debt. Ultimately, both politicians and health care providers are asking the same question: “How do we maintain or improve the quality of health care provided while reducing the cost?” As the CEO of Hospice Care of South Carolina (HCSC), I am getting more and more questions about where I think hospice and end-of-life care is headed with all the recent talk of funding cuts. While sensible reform is definitely needed, I believe that increasing, not decreasing, hospice funding and admissions could help save the Medicare system. Studies show that by 2016, Medicare could be bankrupt. Some have proposed raising the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67. Others have alternative suggestions such as raising Medicare premiums for higher-income patients, increasing other taxes and premiums or a complete redesign of Medicare’s copays and deductibles. While imposing a copayment could reduce Medicare costs, it does not consider the many Medicare patients who would have difficulty affording new copayments for end-of-life care in a hospice care program or in a skilled nursing facility. These individuals would ultimately be forced to be treated for acute problems at a hospital, an outcome frightfully more expensive for the patient and Medicare as a whole. A Duke University study shows that Medicare patients who enrolled in hospice received better care at a significantly lower cost to the government than those who did not use the Medicare hospice benefits. Another report from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai shows that if 1,000 more Medicare recipients enrolled in hospice before death, annual savings to Medicare could amount to between $2.4 million to $6.4 million. Conversely, those who visit the hospital for end-of-life medical care open themselves up for costly treatments at a lower comfort level.
IN MY OWN WORDS by DAVID POWELL
These include intensive care unit stays, feeding tubes or physical therapy only weeks before death. Hospice operates on a daily reimbursement rate and allows patients to seek care in the easiest and most comfortable setting. Instead of the more aggressive procedures, hospice care provides a variety of treatments that manage discomfort and pain towards the end of life. Options can range from in-home care to treatments in hospice facilities that focus on improving the quality of life towards the end. At HCSC, we hire hospice and palliativecertified physicians and staff to take care of our patients’ medical, emotional and spiritual needs. On top of higher quality care, the Duke University study shows that hospice also reduces Medicare spending by an average of approximately $2,000 per person compared to normal care. Could increasing hospice enrollments help decrease the deficit and lower Medicare costs for end-of-life care? I believe so. At HCSC, we believe that seniors should consider hospice over other options for not only the cost savings, but because of the quality of care. No one is turned away for an inability to pay and, actually, the current benefit covers all terminal diagnosis-related costs for medicine, equipment and services. So we return to the question, “How do we maintain or improve the quality of health care provided while reducing the cost?” It is shown that more hospice admissions lessen the overall Medicare cost, which alleviates funding from the government, which ultimately trickles down to us as taxpayers. Plus, hospice also can provide a gentler and less aggressive level of care than they might receive elsewhere. Talk to your legislators about the dangers of increasing out-of-pocket costs for hospice care, and don’t be afraid to consider hospice care when you or a loved one is looking at end-of-life care options. Your voice could be the catalyst for positive Medicare system reform.
David Powell is CEO of Hospice Care of South Carolina.

One-of-a-kind partnership Greenville County Schools Superintendent Burke Royster said the FAC program is unique, a one-of-a-kind partnership between a public school district and a school of architecture that allows qualified students to earn degree-level credit, not just general college credit for work done as a high school junior or senior. “It provides our students with the opportunity to be career- and collegeready,” he said. Program coordination makes the timing less than ideal for recruiting the first class of students during the summer, he said, but the district hopes to have a viable class for the charter group.

Director of the Fine Arts Center Dr. Roy Fluhrer makes opening remarks at the press conference at the Fine Arts Center where it was announced that the Fine Arts Center is entering a partnership with Clemson University.
Royster anticipates the architecture program to be the first of many such collaborations. “We hope it will also serve as a model and challenge for other career and professional areas.”
‘An obvious evolution’
Superintendent of Greenville County Schools W. Burke Royster makes a few remarks at the press conference.
Bill Pelham, a Greenville architect and Clemson graduate, is underwriting the first year of the FAC program and was instrumental in getting Clemson’s School of Architecture involved. Pelham said he was already impressed with the FAC since his daughter was a student there, and considers the program a “brilliant idea” and natural fit. “It’s such an obvious evolution and a next step for them,” he said, as the school already effectively combines art and science in programs such as technical theatre. Kate Schwennsen, chair of Clemson’s School of Architecture, said the FAC program will offer students “a direct connection between high school and college” and the chance to discover if they want to pursue architecture as a career.

“When you look at an undergraduate architecture degree, especially the first two years, it’s really skill building and vocabulary building. Students look and analyze how the built environment is shaped, what went into its design. Students at the Fine Arts Center will do the same thing, but at a different pace than the university.” Robert Hogan, director of Clemson’s School of Architecture undergraduate program
She said the first time she walked into the Fine Arts Center, “I thought there is terrific potential here” for a mutually beneficial relationship. Interested applicants must first win acceptance into the FAC, which requires a portfolio of work demonstrating previous visual arts experience, an academic transcript and teacher recommendation. Applications for the architecture charter class will be accepted through July 26. Up to 15 students will be admitted for the program’s first year, which begins in August.
Building skills “Art of Architecture” will be a four-year sequential program. Students will analyze architecture, do Greenville-based projects and learn what good architecture is, said Robert Hogan, director of Clemson’s School of Architecture undergraduate program. “When you look at an undergraduate architecture degree, especially the first two years, it’s really skill building

existing shell building and a small urban park in or around Greenville. Students will also attend Clemson Architectural Foundation lectures, visit Clemson’s School of Architecture and attend a design studio review. Third-year students will design a small pavilion for a park and a storage facility for a recreation park in the Greenville area, visit construction sites and work with a community design build project in a Clemson design studio course. Fourth-year students will study social responsibility of architects through design of a residence for an elderly couple, one of whom is confined to a wheelchair, using sustainable design practices, as well as a halfway house for homeless families. Hogan said program coordinators are also considering having FAC students study at one of Clemson’s urban-based off-campus site in Charleston; Genoa, Italy; or Barcelona, Spain during the summer.

and vocabulary building,” he said. “Students look and analyze how the built environment is shaped, what went into its design. Students at the Fine Arts Center will do the same thing, but at a different pace than the university.” First-year students will analyze at least two good existing pieces of architecture; visit the offices of an architect, a landscape architect, an interior designer and a city planner, Hogan said – all with the goal of introducing them to the importance of good design. “Walking in downtown Greenville, there’s a certain rhythm of the buildings. Trees create a canopy. Pedestrians are separated from the streets,” he said. “When you look, you realize there’s a certain uniqueness of design. That didn’t happen by chance.” Second-year students will design a small studio and sales facility for an artist in an
Catherine Smith, a Greenville architect who will teach the FAC program, calls architecture the “most massive of all sculptures.” Architecture creates “sculptures people live in, work in and drive adjacent to,” she said. “Its core concepts are based on art – color, balance, volume, proportion and scale. Architecture is a fantastic opportunity to engage young minds. It gets them to think critically about the spaces they live in and engages them as citizens.” Smith said students will benefit from the FAC program even if they decide not to pursue architecture as a career. “Architecture is a very analytical art form. My goal is to train critical thinkers.” Schwennsen agreed, saying students who don’t go on to study architecture will become “better clients, better users of buildings and better citizens.” As far as the number of students coming to Clemson from FAC, Schwennsen said, “We’re hopeful we’ll get a few each year. We’ll take as many as we can get.” Clemson’s architecture program accepts about 80 students per year and usually receives seven times that number of ap p l i c a nt s , Hogan said.

GREENVILLE CITY COUNCIL FROM THE JUNE 24 MEETING
City funds police equipment, purchases Pete Hollis property APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org Earlier this week, Greenville City Council approved appropriation of $130,500 from the Law Enforcement Special Revenue Fund to purchase equipment for the city’s police department. The funds will be used to purchase surveillance equipment for the vice and narcotics units, a forensic upgrade to allow access to data from smartphones, consolidation of the weapons inventory, and bulletproof vests, according to the request. The city works to equip the police department adequately and ensure officers’ safety while they keep residents safe, said Councilman David Sudduth. Allocations from the special revenue fund cannot be used for brick-and-mortar improvements, but for training and equipment, he said. The technology upgrades will help streamline some processes, such as access to forensic information via mobile devices, Sudduth said. Formerly, paper was the communication tool; now, officers can access some information remotely. This
decreases turnaround time for tests and receiving results, he said. In other business, council approved the appropriation of $969,000 from the Viola Street Tax Increment Fund to purchase two pieces of property at Pete Hollis Boulevard. The council passed a resolution to proceed with the purchase of the Green Plaza property, which is eventually slated for demolition. No timetable has been set for the demolition and potential mixeduse development on the spot. The purchase of another smaller piece of property at the corner of Pete Hollis and Mulberry Street was stalled because the appraisal returned was lower than the city’s offer. Negotiations will continue with the owner, said Sudduth, and the council plans to consider the purchase resolution for the property at its next meeting. The purchase is part of a revitalization effort along Pete Hollis Boulevard, one of the gateways into Greenville’s city center. Greenville City Council is scheduled to meet again on July 22, 5:30 p.m., in council chambers on the 10th floor of City Hall.

MAULDIN CITY COUNCIL FROM THE JUNE 17 MEETING
Mauldin Council approves $16.1M budget SHERRY JACKSON | STAFF
email@example.com Mauldin City Council approved a $16.1 million budget for FY 2014 last week that represented a 3.97 percent increase over the prior year and no property tax increase. The budget passed 5-2, with council members Larry Goodson and Dale Black opposing, after the council removed an option to raise sewer fees by $3.25 a month. Council agreed to readdress sewer fees in January 2014 with public hearings to be scheduled. The budget includes $250,000 budgeted towards capital improvements throughout the city, a 3 percent merit increase for city employees and the addition of four new employees: three firefighters and one school resource police officer. There is also $85,000 to complete construction above the City Council chambers to make room for new public works offices. Council also unanimously approved $4,000 in funds to adopt a new logo and branding for the city. The new logo “represents Mauldin as being a progressive city with traditional values,” said City Administrator Trey Eubanks.
Business and Development Services Director Kim Hamel reported that building permits within the city are nearing the pre-recession levels of 2008, with 30 commercial permits issued in May and 101 residential permits, a majority of those for townhomes being developed. Economic Development Director John Gardner told the council that the Meadowbrook subdivision on Tanner Road is considering annexing into the city of Mauldin. Gardner and other city representatives met with the homeowners association earlier this month. Subdivisions seeking annexation usually do so for additional city services such as curbside debris removal, recycling/waste services and additional police. Eubanks reported that a DOT project to improve the appearance at the I-385/Butler Road interchange is kicking off this week. Council also agreed to look into the cost of tornado sirens after public comment from a resident who voiced concern that there is no public warning system within the city of Mauldin.
The next regular meeting of Mauldin City Council will be July 15, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the City Hall council chambers.
Falls Park makes top 10 TripAdvisor, a popular travel website, announced its 2013 Travelers’ Choice awards winners this week with Greenville among the top 10.

Simpsonville City Council approved an amended Discharge of Firearms ordinance at first reading on Tuesday. The amended ordinance will allow Simpsonville’s new gun shop to build a shooting gallery, which has drawn mixed reactions from Simpsonville residents. At the June 11 meeting, both Kevin Glenn and Bill Johnston spoke in support of the proposed shooting range. “I think the gun range is a positive thing,” said Johnston. “We are very excited about the opening,” said Thomas Wirthlin, Gun Shop and Indoor Range co-owner. “Our purpose is to train and educate and our range is being built to NRA standards. It will be a pistol range only and all guns must be loaded inside the building and unloaded before leaving.” However, at Tuesday’s meeting, resident Mike Newman argued that Wirthlin had “failed to follow the NRA’s 793-page Resource Manual, which required that Wirthlin acquire the local ordinances and zoning regulations before building.” Newman called the ordinance “another instance of changing a law to accommo-

date one business owner because of his failure to perform due diligence.” In addition to changing the ordinance to accommodate the shooting range, the council debated the rephrasing itself. Of most interest was the phrase, “the discharge of firearms in cases of urgent necessity,” found in Section B of the proposed ordinance. Councilwoman Geneva Lawrence said she has reviewed the ordinance with experts she respects and “it seems that only a sentence needed to be added to the current ordinance. I am not against the range, but the amended ordinance is too wordy and complicated.” Lawrence said the current version of the ordinance put too much responsibility on the taxpayers and was not clear enough for the police. Police Chief Steve Moore told the council in his opinion the ordinance “seemed vague on the urgency statement. It is important for laws to be clear for us to enforce it. As long as urgent necessity is defined, it is fine if cast onto a regular citizen.” The ordinance ultimately passed 5-2 with the agreement that future amendments would be made with assistance from Moore.

Jara Jones of Greer and her two teenaged children volunteered to be filmed continuously for four days as they navigated the United Way support system with nothing but the clothes on their backs, a car and $40 APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org At campaign kickoff time, Greenville County United Way typically shows a video to illustrate how the money pledged helps the needy in Greenville County. This year, for the first time, the people in the campaign film making the rounds are not actors, but Greenville residents. Three, in fact: Jara Jones of Greer and her
two teenaged children, who volunteered to be filmed continuously for four days as they navigated the United Way support system with nothing but the clothes on their backs, a car and $40. Erwin Penland, the campaign’s ad agency for about 15 years, created the video, said CEO Andy Mendelsohn. In prior years, the agency featured “doom to bloom” success stories and wanted to try something different, he said.

“Because the economy is showing signs of life, there’s a perception out there that it’s not quite as bad as it used to be, and that’s just not true,” he said. The Penland team sought volunteers and deliberately opted not to follow someone who was homeless. “We thought they wouldn’t appreciate it and it probably wouldn’t work,” Mendelsohn said. Instead, the team devised a plan to have a film crew follow “a
family that is OK, that in fact donates to the United Way … and take everything away from them and have them feel what it’s like. And have us feel what it’s like vicariously through them.” Few families responded to the call, he said, but then Jara Jones came forward. Jones volunteers for Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN), which houses homeless families through local church congregations. With this, “I was in a position to help families even more,” she said. Jones said she broke the news to her 16-year-old son, Hunt, and 13-year-old daughter, Meredith, slowly. “They already get taken to this volunteer effort or that, and not always willingly.” It took some negotiating to convince her son, she said, but the trio did the filming in May. The rules were straightforward: There was no help beyond local agencies. The family couldn’t go home, and they had no idea where they were going to sleep each night or how they would find food. Easing the kids’ minds was one of the ordeal’s most difficult aspects, said Jones. Also asking for help, something she had already done once after a layoff and found incredibly challenging.

“It makes you feel like a personal failure that you can’t take care of your own family,” she said. “But layoffs happen … or other crises happen that zap family resources and put people on the street.” As they moved around seeking assistance, the family also found help from others who were in the same situation, Jones said. One woman she met in a shelter gave them $10, she said. “She has nothing and she gave me $10 and that meant a lot to us.” When the crew wasn’t filming during the early morning hours, the family created video diaries, capturing some of the most poignant footage. “They’re a mess, they’re exhausted and they’re scared,” Mendelsohn said. Jones said, “My kids refused to go to school because they didn’t get a shower the night before, they had to sleep in the car and my daughter had to wear my dirty
shirt. We learned a new routine and learned that there’s a homeless trail around town.” Jones said she hopes their participation helps donors to “put up a mirror and say ‘Imagine if this was you.’ That your family had to go through this and how you would feel about that – how would you deal with it?” Art Seaver, chair of the United Way campaign, applauds Jones and admitted he was “a touch nervous” about a reality-based video. However, he said, the campaign leadership wanted “to try any and every strategy to help share what the United Way does, and that’s literally helping those in need today and preventing future needs.” Jones said the four-day experience was difficult, but not compared to the reality the genuinely homeless face. “What gave me courage was that there are moms doing this every day – and they didn’t sign up for it.”

Stunning Facts From Greenville County
State’s child well-being now lags behind Georgia and Alabama Kids Count reveals effects of recession on nation’s children APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
email@example.com It’s no secret that the economic woes of recent years have touched adults nationwide, but those effects have also created hardships for children. According to the Kids Count Data Book, a yearly study released on Monday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the nation saw modest improvement in the wellbeing of children and families last year. But the overall well-being of South Carolina’s children declined by comparison. Drawn from 2011 data, the Kids Count report ranks states and the nation on four areas: family and community, economic well-being, education and health. The report aims to provide policy makers and citizens with “benchmarks of child well-being and to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all our children.” According to the report, South Carolina’s most drastic change was a drop from 34th to 44th place nationally in economic well-being in just one year. Percentages of children in poverty, in homes with a high housing cost burden, whose parents lacked secure employment and teens not in school and not working all increased. The state also fell behind Georgia and Alabama in overall child well-being to 45th in the nation, according to the study. The national rankings put New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Minnesota and New Jersey in the top five for overall well-being and Louisiana, Arizona, Nevada, Mississippi and New Mexico in the bottom five. The Palmetto State did enjoy some statistical improvements, however. South Carolina’s education indicators revealed more children attending preschool, more fourth-graders proficient in reading and more eighth-graders proficient in math. Nationally, math and reading scores have steadily improved, according to the report, but researchers still found the poverty rate higher in the U.S. than in countries with which America competes academically. In addition, the gap in standardized test scores between low-income
and affluent students has grown approximately 40 percent since the 1960s. Health indicators in South Carolina, such as the number of low-birth-weight babies, children without health insurance, child deaths and teens who abuse drugs or alcohol, also improved. Other states were outstripping the Palmetto State, however, resulting in its rank slipping from 40th to 44th. The state’s position remained stable for family and community indicators at 43rd nationally, with fewer teen births and fewer children in households where the head lacks a high school diploma. The number of children in single-parent families increased to 43 percent and children living in high-poverty areas also increased. Poverty can have lasting effects on the development of young children, who eventually become the adults who drive the nation, the foundation said. “Poor parenting, inadequate nutrition, frequent moves and changes in nonparental caregivers, insufficient cognitive stimulation and unsafe environments can actually suppress brain development,” according to the report. Kids Count recommends investing in programs that weave together high-quality early childhood programs with those that support new parents. The Children’s Trust of South Carolina is a statewide organization that supports public and private prevention efforts to keep children safe. Sue Williams, CEO of the Children’s Trust, said in a statement, “As South Carolina copes with the lingering effects of a persistent recession, investing in strategies that support children and families is critical for South Carolina’s future. Programs like home-visiting, preventing child abuse and neglect, and family strengthening are more important than ever. “When families struggle, as so many of ours are right now, communities need to be strong to help families give children what they need to grow into productive citizens,” she said. Williams added that advocates are hopeful Gov. Nikki Haley’s efforts to bring jobs to the state will contribute to financial security for families and children.

Gold Wings ride into Greenville SHERRY JACKSON | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org More than 13,000 touring motorcycles are expected to descend on the TD Convention Center and Greenville area July 3- 6 for the Gold Wing Road Riders Association’s (GWRRA) annual Wing Ding convention. In its 35th year, the convention attracts motorcycle riders and enthusiasts from all over the country and is the largest singlemarque motorcycle gathering of its kind. According to the organization’s website, the event is a “once-a-year chance for our members, and everyone else who wants to see the world’s largest Gold Wing trade show, to gather to party!” Co-founder Shirley Stephens-Garcia coined the term “Wing Ding” in 1979, before the very first convention held at the Point Hilton Resort in Phoenix, Ariz. “By definition [a Wing Ding] is a party,” she said. “What better way to describe

The event will feature hundreds of exhibitors and manufacturers on hand to show off their latest products and services.

The GWRRA encourages the public to come enjoy the parade, which will feature more thn 800 motorcycles, flags from all 50 states and riders of all ages as they travel a nine-mile course around town. Greenville has hosted the event in three previous years – 1995, 2001 and 2008 – and is “thrilled to have the convention back in town for 2013,” says Todd Bertka, senior sales manager at VisitGreenvilleSC. The city of Greenville will host a welcome party for convention attendees Tuesday evening, July 2, at Heritage Green in downtown Greenville, allowing attendees exclusive access to the Children’s Museum of the Upstate, the Upcountry History Museum and the Sargent Wilson
Museum and Gallery. “This gives attendees a chance to check out a cool location and discover a little bit more of Greenville,” Bertka said. Heritage Park in Simpsonville will also play host to the convention by providing reserved lawn seating and a special motorcycle display area and bike parade at the Charter Amphitheatre during the Fourth of July fireworks at Heritage Park. VisitGreenvilleSC estimates that the direct economic impact of the event will be significant, with $5.1 million in visitor spending. That includes revenue from an estimated 10,442-plus room nights, with additional visitors utilizing campgrounds and RV parks for accommodations.

County seizes 142 dogs from puppy mill Betty Starr with Greenville Animal Care gets affection from a dapple miniature dachshund, one of the rescued dogs from a Fountain Inn puppy mill.
Greg Beckner / Staff
Late last week, Greenville County Animal Control officers seized 142 dogs, a cat and several other animals from a puppy mill at a home on Dunklin Bridge Road in Fountain Inn. The animals were transported to the Greenville County Animal Care shelter on Furman Hall Road, said Greenville County spokesperson Bob Mihalic. Dale Ferguson surrendered the animals to Animal Care, said Mihalic, and was issued 10 citations: four for animal cruelty, one for running a puppy mill, three for animals without rabies vaccination, one for hoarding and collecting animals and one for not disposing of an animal properly. Authorities believe that Ferguson was selling or attempting to sell the animals, Mihalic said. Many of the animals need medical care and several have had litters of puppies in the few days that they have been at the facility, said Mihalic. The seized animals will not be available for adoption until they are assessed, spayed or neutered, which could happen as early as this week, he added. The capacity of the shelter is 600, but it
routinely houses 800 and rescue groups have been offering assistance. “We’re making it work,” he said. On Monday, 11 rescue groups had visited the shelter to assess which animals each could take. In 2012, the facility received an average of 1,700 animals per month, including those coming from Spartanburg County, according to its records. Officials estimate the cost to provide medical care and get the adoptable animals
to new homes is approximately $20,000, Mihalic said. The community has been generous with donations, giving almost half that amount as of Tuesday, he said. The case is a reminder that “there are always animals in need at Animal Care,” he said. Anyone wishing to donate funds, food, towels or blankets, volunteer at the shelter or serve as a foster family should contact Animal Care at 864-467-3950 or visit greenvillecounty.org/acs.

City of Greer proclaims Carolina Day email@example.com At the request of the Daniel Morgan Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, Greer City Council and Mayor Rick Danner issued a proclamation at last week’s council meeting recognizing June 28 as Carolina Day. Carolina Day traditionally celebrates the American victory at the Battle of Sullivan’s Island on June 28, 1776, and chapter president Donny Carson said the group requested the designation to “to keep people aware of the significance and sacrifice that these people made.” While Greer is the first to memorialize the day in the Upstate, Carolina Day is already commemorated across South Carolina, including a large celebration in Charleston, with religious services, parades and ceremonial events. The battle at Sullivan’s Island took place six days prior to the Declaration
of Independence and was the first major patriot victory of the American Revolution, producing many South Carolina heroes such as William Moultrie, William Jasper, Donny Carson, Francis Marion president of the and John RutDaniel Morgan ledge, Carson Chapter of said. the Sons of “It was a rethe American markable victoRevolution ry,” he said, noting “the symbols on our flag depict that battle.” The Palmetto tree symbolizes Colonel Moultrie’s defense at Sullivan’s Island and the crescent denotes the emblem worn on the Revolutionary soldier’s caps, he said.

APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org In an 8-3 vote this week, the Greenville County School Board approved a 5-mill tax increase on debt service to help fund technology, security enhancements, classroom renovations and other facility improvements. The increase comes shortly after a 3.9mill increase in May for the district’s operations budget and translates to about a $20 tax increase for owners of a $100,000 house, said district spokesperson Oby Lyles. Voting against the tax hike were board members Crystal Ball O’Connor, Lisa Wells and Lynda Leventis-Wells. Voting in favor were Kenneth E.

Freedom is not free.
Photos by J. Michael Johnson
It’s a belief photographer J. Michael Johnson – best known for his images documenting bikers and the motorcycle lifestyle – seeks to emphasize through photographs taken over the years at “Rolling Thunder’s Ride for Freedom,” a motorcycle ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. held each Memorial Day since 1988. PATRIOTIC continued on page 28

JOURNAL CULTURE PATRIOTIC continued from PAGE 27
“Rolling Thunder,” a nonprofit first launched to bring attention to soldiers left in Vietnam as POWs and MIAs, derives its name from a 1965 bombing campaign against North Vietnam called “Operation Rolling Thunder.” Johnson’s photographs are featured in the exhibition “Nam Era: Never Forgotten – A Photographic Tribute by J. Michael Johnson” that opens Saturday at the Pickens County Museum of Art and History. It is one of two exhibitions at the museum with patriotic themes opening in time for the Fourth of July. The other, “American Colors: Patriotism Reflected in Art,” features work from 39 artists from the Carolinas. “The early Sunday morning walks into the depth and quietness of ‘The Wall’ lets me capture veterans visiting names on ‘The Wall’ that represent the real human cost of freedom,” Johnson said. “The names of young boys and girls growing up too fast, fighting a war on foreign soil and, in so many cases, giving their lives fighting for American freedom in a land that some say God forgot – Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.” Johnson was in the Air Force during the Vietnam era but never went to Vietnam.
“The movement toward these ideals has sometimes been unsteady, sometimes heroic, sometimes controversial … but the concept continues to inspire.” – A LLE N COLE MA N
He said he started photographing bikers and the motorcycle lifestyle on a dare after he saw a report about the Sturgis, S.D., motorcycle rally on television while eating breakfast with a friend. “I do not ride,” he said. “I always just photographed people.” He went to Daytona Bike Week in 1997 and shot 40 rolls of film there. Twelve of his images were published in “Easyriders” magazine. While there, he saw a guy standing on a street corner with a “Rolling Thunder” patch on his motorcycle jacket. Johnson went to the next “Rolling Thunder” and has only missed one since – when he had jury duty.

“There have been times I’ve started to shoot something but never pressed the shutter because it was too personal a moment for the Vietnam vet. There are parts of this exhibit that live only in my head because I made the decision to let an award-winning image go because their personal privacy was much more important than a photograph,” he said. A special veterans’ preview of Johnson’s exhibit will be held Friday, June 28, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Since he made that first trip to Daytona, Johnson’s work has been featured in “Easyriders,” “Biker” and “In the Wind” magazines, and he has provided commercial photography services to companies in the motorcycle industry. Johnson is a co-founder of the Spartanburg Photo Guild and he has served two terms on the board of the Spartanburg Art Museum. Not surprisingly, “American Colors” has a patriotic theme. Museum director Allen Coleman, who curated the exhibit, said the American concept of patriotism “resides in diverse culturally negotiated understanding – the perceptions, contradictions, questions, problems and issues that continue to be challenged and redefined around the ideal of freedom and love of country.” Those perceptions “may be fixed in a persistent struggle to define and achieve freedom and expression,” he said, “or might exist in a comfortable zone where one is simply sure of his own feeling.” Coleman said the American narrative has reflected a striving toward personal or communal success and individual freedoms within social, economic and political fabrics of shared rights. “The movement toward these ideals has sometimes been unsteady, sometimes heroic, sometimes controversial … but the concept continues to inspire.” Artists included in the exhibition are Kathy Bell, Stanley Bermudez, Greg Bowling, Vickey Brickle-Macky, Linda Hyatt Cancel, Brad Carraway, J.J. Casey, Clinton Coleman, Ashley Davis, Melody Davis, Darryl DeBruhl, Trent Frazor, James Greene, Chris Hardwick, Carol HasBrouck, Ernesto Hernandez, Mary Lou Hightower and Lauren Hill.

Way past generic Our Western Sky chooses authenticity over mass consumption The music of Our Western Sky is as vast as the band name suggests. The trio creates ambient-style soundscapes refitted as tough but melodic rock, calling to mind groups like Athens, Ga.’s Maserati. Their songs are both expansive and melodic, inviting close attention and rewarding the listener with layers of melody and instrumental skill. The band formed as a meeting of the minds between two already-popular Upstate bands, East North and Culture Prophet, and quickly began attracting discerning music fans who were tired of the generic bar-band sound that occasionally overloads the Greenville music scene. Who: Our Western Sky, with the Basement Banshees Our Western Sky released their self-recorded album, “Lost SeaWhen: Saturday, June 29, 10 p.m. sons,” last December, and they’re playing the Radio Room at 2845 Where: The Radio Room, 2845 N. Pleasantburg Dr., Greenville N. Pleasantburg Dr. on Saturday, Information: 263-7868 or wpbrradioroom.com June 29. I spoke recently with drummer Chris Morris about the band’s formation and their music. How did Our Western Sky come together? East North and Culture Prophet played a lot of shows together, so we were already friends. And Michael [Barksdale, of Culture Prophet, who plays guitar in Our Western Sky] sent me a text message one day asking me if I liked this band called Appleseed Cast, and I told him I did. He said he was thinking about putting a project together that was similar to them. And of course, we ended up not sounding anything like Appleseed Cast, but we liked what we were doing enough to keep going with it.

In cooperation with Greenville Health System
Was there a lot of common musical ground between you, Michael and bassist Matthew Mashburn? We definitely had mutual interests. Michael is like the bridge between us because he likes everything. But we all have things in common that we’re really keen on. Culture Prophet incorporated a lot of electronic elements into their music; was there a temptation to do that with Our Western Sky? Not really, because the intention of the band was to take inspiration from the music we liked as teenagers. So there wasn’t a whole lot of electronic music going on back then. And I also think Michael was looking to do more stuff live as opposed to in the studio. It’s totally different now. Tell me about recording “Lost Seasons.” We had all recorded in other studios where we had to pay lots of money to make the record, and they always ended up not sounding like we wanted them to. So we decided to do it ourselves, so that we could have control over every single aspect. We did most of the tracks at my house in one day, and then we took those over to Michael’s studio to polish all of the tracks. We had to borrow some equipment and bring in some people, but we were able to do it more or less on our own, and the recording process essentially cost us nothing. The band plays music that can be more challenging than your average three-piece rock band; were you worried about your songs attracting an audience? The audience that we’re going for is the one we’re attracting. A lot of music that’s made for mass consumption, I think that it lacks an authenticity. It’s very general; it’s very broad. And what we’re doing is very specific. Would I love it if more people were hearing our stuff? Of course, but we’re happy with the amount of attention we’re getting. The style of music that we play is more for people who want to think about what they’re listening to and make a more personal connection. VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR

R e a l E s tat e N e w s Foreign Home Buyers Continue to Identify U.S. as Profitable Investment, Realtors® Report
(June 24, 2013) – International home sales in the U.S. declined in the past year, but are at their second highest level in recent years and are over six percent of total existing-home sales in value. According to the National Association of Realtors® 2013 Profile of International Home Buying Activity, interest in U.S. properties continues to grow, signaling that America continues to be regarded by international buyers as a great place to own property. The survey, which asked Realtors® to report their international business activity within the U.S. for the 12 months ending March 2013, showed that total international sales were $68.2 billion, down approximately $14 billion from the previous year. The decline is attributed to a number of temporary factors, including economic slowdowns in a number of major foreign economies, tighter U.S. credit standards and unfavorable exchange rates. Of total international transactions, $34.8 billion (51 percent) were attributed to foreign buyers with permanent residences outside the U.S. and $33.4 billion (49 percent) were attributed to buyers who are recent immigrants or temporary visa holders residing for more than six months in the U.S. “Foreign buyers are experiencing hurdles not only abroad, but also here in the U.S. when it comes to purchasing property,” said 2013 President of The Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® and Broker in charge of Keller Williams Realty in Greenville, SC, Bill Lawton. “Difficult economic conditions, particularly in Europe, have impacted foreign buyers, but several factors in the U.S. have also affected their purchasing power here. Tight credit standards have made financing challenging for immigrants, and low housing inventories have made finding a house difficult. However, none of these factors appear to be permanent.” Foreign buyers continue to have a substantial interest in U.S. properties. Over a five year time frame more than 70 percent of Realtors® reported a constant or increasing level in the number of international clients contacting them. “Realtors® provide international buyers with a significant advantage when purchasing property in the U.S. Realtors® who have earned NAR’s Certified International Property Specialist designation have received specialized training and are well prepared to service the international market,” said Lawton. Twenty-seven percent of Realtors® reported having worked with international clients this year. The most important factors influencing international clients’ purchases reported by Realtors® were that the U.S. is viewed as a desirable location and that the real estate market is regarded as a profitable investment. Realtors® reported purchases from 68 countries, but five have historically accounted for the bulk of purchases; Canada (23 percent), China (12 percent), Mexico (8 percent), India (5 percent) and the United Kingdom (5 percent). These five countries accounted for approximately 53 percent of transactions, with Canada and China the fastest growing sources over the years. Canadian buyers were reported to purchase properties with a median price of $183,000, with the majority purchased in Florida, Arizona and California. Chinese buyers tended to purchase property in the upper price ranges with a median price of $425,000 and typically in California. Sixty-two percent of Mexican buyers purchased property in California and Texas, with a median price of $156,250. International buyers tend to cluster in specific locations based on countries of origin, as well as several other factors. “Many factors influence foreign buyers’ decisions on where to purchase in the U.S., but the most important are proximity to home country, presence of relatives and friends, availability of job and education opportunities, and the climate,” said Lawton. “International buyers also differ on the type of desired property. Some are looking for trophy properties while others are interested in modest vacation homes.” Five states made up 61 percent of reported purchases; Florida (23 percent), California (17 percent), Arizona (9 percent), Texas (9 percent) and New York (3 percent). About half of foreign buyers preferred to purchase in a suburban area, while a quarter preferred a more central city/urban area. A majority purchased a detached single-family home and 63 percent used all-cash. Based on the reported international transactions, the mean and median prices of purchases were higher when compared to purchase prices of domestic buyers. For the 12 months ending March 2013 the median international home price was $275,862 and for domestic buyers it was $179,867. The types of homes purchased by international buyers frequently tended to be different from the types of homes purchased by domestic U.S. buyers. International buyers are more likely to be substantially wealthier and looking for a property in a specialized niche. The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries. Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® represents over 1,600 members in all aspects of the real estate industry.

WHERE I’VE BEEN
WITH BILL KOON
Lost in all the best places With the vacation season washing over us, I am reminded of how much I have enjoyed being lost on various trips. That may sound strange to those who have, and know how to use, MapQuest or a GPS. But the ones who have been paying attention to my columns know that I’m a technophobe – I’m not very good with the stuff and I’m not crazy about being tracked by a satellite when I’m on my way to a wine shop or a payday loan company. Furthermore, I don’t like it when a GPS, only a machine, pretends to be a suave woman talking to me in a seductive voice. I have a friend who turns on his GPS just to feel wanted. He likes being told, sweetly, where to turn and which way to go. He especially likes hearing that he has “gone too far.” I swear, I think he is going to buy his GPS a big diamond ring and propose to it. But I, innocent of the technology, have gotten to see a lot of unexpected sites while lost in places like New York and San Francisco. This past summer, I got to see a Quaker village while trying to get to Cleveland. I’m especially good at getting lost in foreign cities, an adventure enriched by my inability to say much more than “beer” in any language other than English. I will take a sleeping bag with me if I ever have to go back to Venice. One Christmas, we were looking for a particular restaurant in Barcelona. A kind citizen noted our confusion and directed us to “turn right at the Virgin.” “The Virgin,” it turns out, is a statue on the corner of a prominent building where several streets converge with the city’s main drag, La Rambla. We found the statue easily enough, but turning right was another matter. Did my benefactor mean we should “turn right” at the Virgin, or did he mean we should turn one way or another, “right at the Virgin”? Or was he giving me some religio/politico advice? The Bride and I did a rock, paper, scissors exercise which led us to choose the wrong street – which took us down a tight alley to a small plaza behind Barcelona’s art museum where an avant-garde artist was using fruit and candy to create a holiday design on the pavement. Once she finished, she distributed the edibles to the crowd. We looked distressed enough to get a banana, which kept us on our feet until we found our restaurant. I hope that one day, here in South Carolina, I’ll have a chance to direct a foreign tourist to “turn right” at the Beulah Land Baptist Church. He’ll be as confused as we were, I bet. We once tried to drive from Munich to the Bride’s native Austria. We took the back roads through the mountains because we are too cheap to pay the big tolls on the autobahn. Of course, we got lost beyond reasonable doubt. We finally stopped at a rural shop where a bunch of geezers were sitting around gabbing and watching the traffic go by. We asked about getting to Salzburg. They had little English and their German was in a dialect different from our dialect. But we communicated enough to find out that we could not get to Salzburg from there. They slapped their thighs and clapped in hilarity. Finally, they were able to tell us that, at a nearby train station, we could drive our VW up onto a flatbed railroad car and have ourselves – lock, stock and barrel – pulled backwards through a mountain tunnel from Germany into Austria. That we did, with only a little fear as we sat in the car rumbling through the dark in the hope that there would be light, and a highway, ahead. The jaunt cost us slightly more than the autobahn tolls but was more fun than Disney’s “White Knuckle” roller coaster. We are at work now on a “Top Ten” article about the best places in the world to be lost. Send us your stories. First prize is a holiday in a posh resort – which we will announce once we figure out how to get there. Bill Koon lives in Greenville. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
