The V.C. Summer nuclear debacle matters to the Upstate, too By Shelley Robbins
Every time I’ve written about the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station project in the Midlands, I’ve intentionally avoided the term “meltdown.” It was too trite. But after last Monday’s announcement that the project, undertaken jointly by SCE&G and Santee Cooper, would be abandoned, “meltdown” seems to be the only term that fits. So what happened? Basically, South Carolina’s laws and regulatory oversight all cataclysmically failed, and the project collapsed under its own weight. Upstate Forever saw this coming. Back in 2016, we challenged the Dominion Transco to Charleston pipeline. We questioned the “need” for the pipeline with new nuclear power generation coming online that would free up gas capacity. With the help of the South Carolina Environmental Law Project, we fought the Dominion pipeline with every tool we had. In late spring, we were faced with a choice — whether to appeal the final permit and take the whole issue to court. And then Westinghouse, the contractor hired to build the two nuclear reactors, filed for bankruptcy, and we realized we’d lost our argument that the new pipeline was not needed. Upstate Forever calculated the cost to complete the V.C. Summer project and compared it to current costs for natural gas plants and grid scale solar, which are much cheaper. The numbers simply didn’t add up. How could the powers that be possibly determine that finishing the nuclear plants was in the best interest of South Carolina ratepayers?
This was in April — three months ago. It was clear then that V.C. Summer was in deep trouble, but they didn’t pull the plug when they should have. The ratepayers will pay the costs. And it’s not just the Midlands and Lowcountry that’ll bear the consequences— the Upstate will be affected, too.
Gov. Henry McMaster has called for hearings on the nuclear failure, but this isn’t enough. The entire system needs an overhaul. First, we must suffer the environmental damage and the assault on property rights caused by a pipeline that will serve Midlands and Lowcountry customers. We get no benefit. Second, Duke Energy will need to make some decisions about future capacity in the Upstate soon. They will almost certainly have to decommission the Oconee Nuclear Station around 2030. While Duke has received a license for a new nuclear facility in Cherokee County, UF does not believe that station will actually be built. Massive nuclear capacity simply isn’t justified or cost-effective. The V.C. Summer failure was the nail in the coffin. The good news is that this situation has brought systemic regulatory problems to light — specifically, the deep flaws in the state’s Base Load Review Act from 2007. The act’s problems are exacerbated by a weak Public Service Commission and an Office of Regulatory Staff that operates under a conflicting mission — to represent the interests of both citizens and industry in matters before the commission. This structure must change. Fortunately, Gov. Henry McMaster has called for hearings on the nuclear failure, but this isn’t enough. The entire system needs an overhaul, and now is the perfect time because the state’s energy paradigm is currently shifting dramatically. Costs for utility-scale solar have fallen; battery storage technology has improved; and there is a significant interest in energy efficiency options. All of these things can be incentivized by the state, but the regulatory structure in South Carolina either doesn’t allow it or makes it very difficult. I wonder how many residential batteries or solar panels could be incentivized with the money spent on one peaking plant? It’s also completely conceivable that new base load will not need to be built at all. This is already being proposed in California and New York, where nuclear base load is being replaced by aggressive efficiency, renewables, and storage programs. This option restores the carbon neutrality of the project in a way that natural gas simply cannot. We have the opportunity right now to make positive change, to raise a phoenix out of this incredible nuclear dumpster fire. Let your legislators know that you want more accountability, more transparency, and more clean energy options for all of us in South Carolina. You can also help by supporting Upstate Forever. We work tirelessly to protect our natural resources through conservation and advocacy. Join us and help keep the Upstate green, vibrant, and prosperous. Shelley Robbins is the energy and state policy manager for Upstate Forever.

Repeal the Base Load Review Act Customers shouldn’t bear the brunt of costs for failed projects like V.C. Summer Nuclear Station By William Timmons
Last week, SCANA and state-owned utility Santee Cooper decided to abandon two nuclear power plants in Fairfield County after roughly five years of construction and $9 billion spent to date. Over 5,100 people will be out of work. Local businesses that relied on this workforce will suffer. No new energy capacity will be produced. The project will essentially render this once growing area a ghost town. How did this happen? How can a project like this simply stop? SCANA and Santee Cooper have jointly operated one nuclear plant in Fairfield County since 1983. In 2008, they decided to expand their nuclear capacity and jointly build two new nuclear power plants on the same site, the V.C. Summer Nuclear Station. Two and a half weeks ago, on July 18, I toured the construction site with several senators and staff to get an update on the project. During the tour, the project manager told me that they were 70 percent complete. While we were cautioned about what the Westinghouse bankruptcy filing would mean for the project, it seemed after touring the site that surely a solution could be reached to continue. On July 31, Santee Cooper and SCANA announced their intent to abandon the project. To add insult to injury, SCANA announced that it would seek a rate hike to cover the approximately $3 billion of abandonment costs. Days later, they announced quarterly profits of $120 million. The facts surrounding the decision to abandon the nuclear power plants are complicated. They include changes in federal energy policy, the massive failure of Westinghouse to manage project deadlines and construction costs, Toshiba’s refusal to bail out Westinghouse after bankruptcy, and perhaps a failure on SCANA and Santee Cooper’s part to meaningfully address these factors sooner in the process. What can we change right now? Santee Cooper needs to be dealt with. It is a state-owned asset, and as such, it will have to answer to the General Assembly next legislative session. SCANA is privately owned, so our options are more limited; however, we can make sure that customers stop bearing the brunt of this project’s failure. We do this by repealing the 2007 Base Load Review Act.
The General Assembly passed this bill with good intentions and in preparation for a growing energy infrastructure. When it was enacted, legislators did not anticipate five years of construction, $9 billion, and more than 5,100 jobs lost. Among other things, the legislation essentially allows utilities to pass along estimated project costs to ratepayers prior to construction, should the Public Service Commission (PSC) deem the decision to build the nuclear plant prudent. If a project is abandoned after the prudency determination, then the utility is allowed to defer costs and include them in its next rate case, but it must prove that abandonment was prudent. Again, while there is a provision for abandonment, no legislator truly considered that we might find ourselves in this situation. We cannot shift costs to ratepayers in order to finance such a tremendous risk, especially when a state-owned asset is involved and the parties are providing something as essential as power generation. This legislation must be repealed immediately. Like many of you, I cannot simply sit back and accept our current set of facts. We must demand answers. More importantly, we need accountability and to make sure that this cannot happen again. The first step is to repeal the Base Load Review Act. The General Assembly has the ability to reconvene in statewide session between now and January for matters of this magnitude. If we do nothing in the next few weeks and the PSC approves the pending $3 billion rate hike to let SCANA walk away scot-free, then the legislature will be powerless to hold SCANA accountable for their failure. It is imperative that we carry out the duties you elected us to exercise on your behalf. I urge my colleagues to recognize this opportunity to protect ratepayers going forward. We must act to protect the thousands of South Carolina families that will be adversely affected by this decision. William Timmons represents District 6 in the South Carolina State Senate and is an entrepreneur and attorney in Greenville.

COMPLIANCE CHECK, PLEASE The federal government targets some Greenville restaurants to make sure they meet Americans With Disabilities Acts standards CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
email@example.com and ARIEL TURNER | STAFF firstname.lastname@example.org
Ten Greenville restaurants are getting reviewed — but not in the way they are accustomed. Instead of being rated by the quality of their entrees, appetizers, and desserts and the attentiveness and knowledge of their wait staff, these 10 eateries, all located within a 5-mile radius of downtown, are being reviewed for their compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Upon receiving the letter and survey, Beeby filled it out immediately and sent it back. “I don’t foresee any issues,” he says. “It was very clear no one had complained.” When planning the Trappe Door’s design, instead of incurring the expense of installing an elevator from the street-level front entrance to the ground floor, the restaurant turned its attention elsewhere — the backdoor in the rear alleyway behind the Trappe Door and Barley’s. From the alley to the backdoor, they constructed a ramp, making it fully accessible to wheelchairs and those who cannot descend the entryway stairs. The ADA requires the U.S. Department of
When planning the Trappe Door’s design, instead of incurring the expense of installing an elevator from the street-level front entrance to the ground floor, the restaurant turned its attention elsewhere — the backdoor in the rear alleyway. Recently, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbia sent letters to 10 restaurants it found on a third-party website that identified the city’s most popular restaurants. Rob Sneed, an assistant U.S. Attorney who is one of the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Civil Rights coordinators for the District of South Carolina, would not disclose which restaurants received letters because the investigation is open. The office also declined to specify which site they consulted. However, after consulting several different lists and making calls, The Greenville Journal received verbal confirmation from management at Sully’s Steamers and The Trappe Door, both on Washington Street downtown, that they are among the 10 restaurants that received the letters. Josh Beeby owns the Belgium-inspired Trappe Door, which features a rather long set of stairs from its front Washington Street entrance to the basement-level restaurant below. Needless to say, their stairs would not be suited to wheelchair access. Despite appearances, the Trappe Door was built to ADA code when it was created in 2011, according to Beeby. Many older restaurants downtown are grandfathered.
Justice to do periodic reviews to see if restaurants are compliant, and to bring civil enforcement actions to obtain compliance and issue penalties as appropriate. Similar restaurant ADA compliance reviews have been conducted in other cities, including Houston and Philadelphia, but this is the first in South Carolina, Sneed said. Greenville was picked because it is one of the state’s three biggest cities, and there hasn’t been as much ADA enforcement activity here as in Columbia and Charleston. Greenville’s growth and emergence as a tourist destination was considered as well. “I’m sure that was a factor,” he said. Restaurant owners who received the letter were asked to complete a survey regarding the restaurant’s accessibility, such as entryway width and restroom design, as well as their building’s age and any building modifications. An investigator also schedules a visit to evaluate ADA compliance. Those visits likely will begin in September, Sneed said. If violations are found, the DOJ pursues voluntary compliance measures first, but civil lawsuits may be pursued in federal court if necessary, Sneed said.
The ADA ensures those with disabilities can access public spaces such as restaurants.
“Imagine, if you will, what life would be like if you could not get into a grocery store or a school or a government office, or in this case, eat in a restaurant,” said U.S. Attorney Beth Drake. “We look forward to working with our restaurants. If any restaurants are noncompliant, we will work with them to bring them into compliance, so that the entire community can enjoy their facilities,” she added. Similar compliance reviews were conducted last year at Richland County polling places, and violations were found at onethird of them, Sneed said. The review resulted in an agreement with the county election board to ensure all polling places are ADA compliant. Another investigation resulted in an agreement with the Columbia Police De-
partment to provide sign language interpreters so people who are deaf or hard of hearing can communicate with officers.
Greenville was picked because it is one of the state’s three biggest cities, and there hasn’t been as much ADA enforcement activity here as in Columbia and Charleston.

Police to close top decks of all garages except two during eclipse As thousands of people prepare to descend upon Greenville to view the total eclipse on Aug. 21, Greenville’s public safety agencies — from police to fire to emergency medical services — are preparing for every kind of emergency under the sun. From increased traffic and, potentially, more wrecks to roof collapses caused by too many people getting on top of buildings that cannot structurally handle the load, to overloaded wireless networks, police and fire officials have been prepping for a once-in-a-lifetime event. Greenville officials say one of the biggest concerns is people gathering on rooftops that are not engineered for rooftop gatherings. The extra weight can cause buildings to be structurally undermined, potentially causing a roof collapse. “We’re really discouraging rooftop events,” Miller said. If somebody insists on having a rooftop event, planners should have the fire marshal inspect their roofs to determine how many people can be safely accommodated, Miller said. The top deck of two of Greenville’s parking garages will be open for pedestrians during the eclipse — the Commons garage adjacent to the Hyatt and the Poinsett garage. All of the other garage’s top floors will be sealed off and staffed to prevent people from going up to them, Miller said. “The load of people moving around is different than the load caused by cars traveling to park,” he said. Police will patrol areas where eclipse viewers are expected to gather. As far as traffic goes, Miller said motorists who want to view the eclipse are asked to pull into a parking lot, not just onto the shoulder of the road. If one driver pulls onto the shoulder, others will do the same and the close proximity of cars increases the chance of a distracted driver running off the road and causing a multi-vehicle wreck. If it is overcast in Greenville on the day of the eclipse, police are still expecting increased traffic downtown, especially around the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, which is the inclement weather site of Eclipse @ Furman events and will livestream the eclipse from NASA. Lastly, Miller urges people to download the Greenville Police Department’s mobile app so they can still receive notifications of emergencies and detours in case wireless networks are taxed too much by people trying to livestream or post eclipse photographs to social media sites. “In the area where there will be the greatest concentration of people, we will have the least capacity for cell service,” he said. Local and state officials have asked Verizon to increase bandwidth along the path of totality, Miller said. — Cindy Landrum

Clemson professor receives $6M for research to lower drug prices Clemson University professor Sarah Harcum has been awarded a $6 million grant from the National Science Foundation to study ways to lower the cost of drugs for illnesses such as Crohn’s disease, breast cancer, severe anemia, and multiple sclerosis. Harcum and several other researchers plan to research better ways of engineering Chinese hamster ovary cells, which the drug industry uses to produce half of all biopharmaceuticals. According to Harcum, a bioengineering professor, Chinese hamster ovary cells are highly adaptable, bear no human viruses, and are capable of high-level production. But the hamster cells have one flaw: genetic drift, a series of mutations that ultimately hinders drug production for manufacturers and increases prices for patients. Genetic drift begins at cell development, according to Harcum. A line of ovarian cells ideally develops with a uniform genetic composition, which is necessary for the efficient production of all biopharmaceuticals. Unfortunately, the composition drifts as cells reproduce, and they become less effective at creating drugs. As a result, production becomes more expensive as it requires more monitoring, control, and analysis throughout the manufacturing process. Some biopharmaceuticals under current pro-
duction conditions can cost patients thousands of dollars per treatment, according to Harcum. Harcum said the study is expected to improve the manufacturing process for biopharmaceuticals, creating more affordable prices for patients. “We expect by the end of the study we will have identified some genes that cause the instability,” said Harcum. “With success, the Chinese hamster ovary cell line will stay more stable during the manufacturing. We hope to get that drift to be reduced; that’s the ultimate goal.” —Andrew Moore

That space will be used for private parties or to accommodate heavier weekend crowds. Most of the beer will be local or regional, Kinley says. A small-plate menu made for snacking while relaxing with a cold one will change seasonally. —Ariel Turner
Sidewall Pizza owners announce new cocktail bar Rocket Surgery The owners of Sidewall Pizza announced the identity of their mystery project next to the Tasting Room and Farmhouse Tacos in Travelers Rest — a new cocktail bar called Rocket Surgery. Located at 164D S. Main St., the new spot will also offer snacks, full meals, and brunch, and it will open in just a few weeks, says co-owner Andy O’Mara. “We’re not long-time chefs,” says O’Mara. “We just want to create a great place for people to hang out.” The Rocket Surgery space was initially supposed to house a barbecue joint the Sidewall owners had previously announced. But after going through all of the permitting and planning for the 146 S. Main St. location, O’Mara says the Martha’s Hardware property at 21 S. Main St. became available. Shortly after, the owners decided Martha’s was a better fit for the barbecue concept, which should open later this year. O’Mara says he and his partner, Loren Frant, are fans of craft cocktails, but they haven’t yet had a chance to enter that world because Sidewall Pizza sells wine and beer only. By contrast, the Rocket Surgery beverage program will be spirits-focused with fewer than eight beer options – all bottled or canned – and a limited selection of wines. Rocket Surgery will seat 55 indoors and is designed to have more of an adult feel than the family-friendly Sidewall. O’Mara also plans to have outdoor patio seating at some point, but not until they’re ready for it. Initially, Rocket Science will be open Thursday through Monday at 5 p.m. for dinner, with brunch offered on Saturday and Sunday. —Ariel Turner
Work begins on new public plaza in Village of West Greenville The Village of West Greenville will soon have a new public plaza scheduled for completion in October. Located between The Anchorage and Community Journals on Perry Avenue, the roughly 5,000-square-foot plaza will feature catenary lights strung from rooftop to rooftop, one-of-a-kind cast-iron light poles donated by local businessman and community leader Richard Heusel, and public art as a nod to the area’s thriving arts scene. The plaza will also include a large artis-
tic Village of West Greenville sign funded by a $3,000 Placemaking Micro-Grant from the Greater Greenville Association of Realtors. Tracy Ramseur, the city’s development coordinator, said the Village’s need for such a space is driven, in large part, by the community-minded entrepreneurs opening new businesses in the area. “The Village of West Greenville is fortunate to have an eclectic mix of small businesses, ranging from artist studios to restaurants, as well as a very active business association,” Ramseur said. “They host a variety of free community events, like VILLive concerts and monthly First Fridays, that bring hundreds of people to the Village’s epicenter, and the new plaza will serve as the ideal backdrop for those special events.” Saluda Construction, who is also working on the Augusta Road streetscape improvements, began work on the plaza in mid-July. —Ariel Turner
New Augusta trolley route has no stops in Alta Vista neighborhood When the idea of having a new trolley route in the Augusta Street area was first proposed, residents of the Alta Vista neighborhood were all for it. But when the new route started on Aug. 3, it included no stops in the area bordered by Augusta Street, Faris Road, Cleveland Street, and Church Street. Nicole McAden, public affairs specialist for Greenlink, said staff were unable to identify stop locations along McDaniel that met Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility requirements, had “buy-in” from the adjacent property owners, and had encroachment permits approved by the state Department of Transportation in time for the route’s first service day. “When the trolleys were discussed, a lot of folks thought it would be great to have stops in the neighborhood,” said Alta Vista Neighborhood Association President Curt Hall. “But there’s a difference between wanting a stop and having that stop near your house. I guess I understand why people wouldn’t want a stop in front of their house.” Greenlink will evaluate any requests or recommendations for stops as they come in, and plans to re-evaluate the route when its season ends in October. The Augusta route, one of the new routes in Greenlink’s expanded trolley service, includes Cleveland Park and the Greenville Zoo, popular attractions where parking can get extremely scarce, especially on weekend days when the weather is nice. Traffic on Augusta is a major concern as well and was one of the biggest reasons residents banded together to successfully fight against a Chick-fil-A drive-thru restaurant in the redeveloping Lewis Plaza. Another new route, Arts West, will include the growing arts and restaurant district in the Village of West Greenville. It will also serve the Hampton-Pinckney and Southernside neighborhoods, as well as provide access to Heritage Green, the home of Greenville’s main library and museums. —Cindy Landrum

THE BIG ONES Several projects in and near downtown will impact the city and its residents for decades to come. Here’s a look at how those projects are progressing. WORDS BY CINDY LANDRUM
2. GREENVILLE HEALTH SYSTEM SWAMP RABBIT TRAIL EXPANSION Despite the fact that the county has yet to identify where an extension to the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail will cross Laurens Road with a flyover bridge, work has started on the 2.9 miles of trail from Pleasantburg Drive to Verdae Boulevard. A contractor has begun pulling up railroad ties on that section, and paving is expected to begin by January 2018. The county expects to identify the location of a trail bridge over Laurens Road soon as negotiations with private property owners
are in their final stages. Greenville County is overseeing construction of the project, and the city is pitching in $2.5 million to build bridges across Laurens Road, Haywood Road, and Verdae Boulevard. The trail will go under Pleasantburg Drive. “When it comes to interchanges, we’re going to make sure trail users have safe passage,” said Greenville City Councilwoman Amy Ryberg Doyle. “We’re not going to make the mistakes we did in the past.” Other sections of the trail cross busy four-lane roads. The bridge over Verdae Boulevard will be 280 feet long to accommodate the lanes of traffic and to make sure the grade is Americans with Disabilities Act compliant, she said.
1. CAMPERDOWN Work on Camperdown, a mixed-use project that has already transformed the look of South Main Street, continues. The old Greenville News building has been demolished, and the newspaper has moved into a smaller office building on the site, a city block across from the Peace Center. Work has started on the podium for the development’s multifamily building, and Centennial American Properties took the plaza’s design and finishes to the City of Greenville’s Design Review Board this week. In the fall, another DRB meeting will be held regarding the architecture of Camperdown’s second office building and the buildings in the plaza. The public should see new buildings being constructed on the site by this time next year. The project should be finished early in the second quarter of 2019. Camperdown will have a 140-room AC Hotel from JHM Hotels, a 217-unit apartment development, about 80,000 square feet of retail, 150,000 square feet of office space, and 18 condominiums. The hotel has long been an anchor component of the site, but recently it was announced that portions of the hotel would draw some inspiration from newspapers in acknowledgment of the site’s predecessor.

COVER 3. 85-385 GATEWAY
5. COUNTY SQUARE
Construction on a new flyover bridge from Interstate 385 North to Interstate 85 South started last week and is expected to take several weeks, said S.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kimberly Bishop. The bridge is part of the I-85-385 Gateway project, slated to cost $231 million and be completed by 2020. The Gateway project, approved by the DOT in 2012, includes construction of 12 new interchange bridges, including two flyovers that will replace the existing loop ramps that tie I-85 and I-385 together. In addition to the bridges, the project includes the extension of the fourth auxiliary lane on I-85 northbound and the addition of another lane southbound between I-385 and Pelham Road; widening I-385 from four to six lanes between Butler Road and Roper Mountain Road; reconstruction of the traffic signal system on Woodruff Road between Ketron Court and Highway 14; flood warning signs on I-85 near Rocky Creek; and construction of additional turn lanes and reconstruction of three intersections on Woodruff Road between I-85 and I-385. Bishop said the project is on schedule.
4. DIG GREENVILLE Renewable Water Resources will hold an informational meeting about Dig Greenville, the utility’s largest-ever underground sewer tunnel project, on Aug. 29. The $46 million project calls for a 1.3 mile-long tunnel through granite rock 100 feet underground for a new sewer line that will run from Cleveland Park near the Greenville Zoo to near Hudson Street. ReWa said the project should meet the sewer needs of the Reedy River basin for the next century. The underground tunnel will be 10 feet in diameter and house a 7-foot diameter pipe. Construction is expected to begin in January, said Greg Wright, ReWa’s engineering director. Access shafts will have to be constructed at each end of the tunnel. Blasting will occur at each end, but a tunnelboring machine that cuts through rock will be used for the corridor itself. The
city’s noise ordinance allows construction from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., but nighttime limits are 55 decibels, about the volume of a conversation. Some neighborhood residents had concerns that nighttime work would be too noisy. ReWa has been recording background noise levels over the summer so it can calibrate a desktop noise model it completed earlier with actual data. “The neighborhood gets quiet at night,” Wright said. “However, noises go beyond the ordinance requirement.” The noises come from a number of sources, including vehicular traffic, Greenville Zoo animals, cicadas, and other insects, he said. ReWa will use the data to determine whether asking for a variance to the noise ordinance makes sense. Working around the clock would cut up to six months off the project and save up to $1.5 million. The Aug. 29 meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at United Community Bank, 306 E. North St.
Perhaps the biggest question in downtown Greenville is what’s going to happen to County Square, the former shopping mall that has served as Greenville County’s base of operations for the past three decades. The public will have to wait a while longer for the answer, as Greenville County Council is still trying to choose from the three remaining private developers that submitted proposals. The county has not officially disclosed the names of the finalists, chosen from an initial six developers, although there has been media speculation about who they are. Bob Taylor, chairman of the Council’s County Square Development Ad Hoc committee, said the Council has not set a timetable for a decision. County Square is nearly 38 acres and is within walking distance of Falls Park, Fluor Field, and the Greenville Hospital System Swamp Rabbit Trail. The redevelopment will include a 250,000-square-foot office building to house the county offices currently located on the site. County officials also asked for a 1,000-space parking garage to be included in the proposals. Because the redevelopment will eliminate County Square parking spots that are used by the public when they go to baseball games at Fluor Field or elsewhere in that area of downtown, County Council has agreed to spend up to $15 million for a new parking garage somewhere in the West End. The City of Greenville would pick a site for the parking garage, operate it, and keep any parking revenue it would generate, according to an intergovernmental agreement.

COVER 6. VERDAE Several projects are underway at Verdae. Lots are being sold for Bella Grove, an 82-lot neighborhood of single-level homes located with Verdae Development’s Hollingsworth Park. The cottage-style homes, which have a maximum height of 1.5 stories, start in the high $400,000s. Work continues on a mixed-use commercial project by Verdae Properties on nearly 70 acres at Henderson and Laurens roads. The project, which includes the former Sam’s Club and Best Buy sites, is a part of a $100 million redevelopment effort Verdae announced in 2014 that includes retail, residential, and a new park and trails connecting to the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail. Camperdown Academy plans to build a new school on the site, while construction of Verdae Commons Drive, the main entrance to the new development, continues.
7. CITY PARK The first visible sign of work on the new City Park will come in mid-September, when the city is scheduled to move the public works department from its current facility on
Hudson Street to its new home on Fairforest Way. The move will pave the way for work to begin on the park, the city’s signature park on the west side and one that Mayor Knox White said could be as transformative to that area as Falls Park was to the West End. The city has committed up to $2 million per year for 10 years. City Park is expected to include a great lawn, a “sprayground” water feature, a picnic area, basketball courts, and the transformation of Welborn Street into a pedestrian promenade. The park could also include an eight-story tower, a veterans memorial, and other features. Groundbreaking for City Park could be held as early as spring 2018.
8. NORTHPOINTE Before work on the buildings of Northpointe, a mixed-use development that will transform one of downtown Greenville’s key gateways, can begin, the intersection of Wade Hampton Boulevard and Stone Avenue must be transformed first. Work to make the Wade Hampton Boulevard and Stone
Avenue intersection T-shaped is underway. Once the intersection is complete, Column Street, a small road that cuts through the property on which NorthPointe will be built, will be closed. Vertical construction should begin next summer. A 58,000-square-foot Harris Teeter grocery store will anchor the development, which will also include 284 apartment units and 22,000 square feet of retail space.
9. ENCLAVE AT LAURENS Construction drawings for a sewer line serving a mixeduse development on the 10-acre site at Laurens and Pleasantburg that was once home to the Department of Motor Vehicles and the surrounding area are being finalized, said Dwayne Cooper, City of Greenville engineering services manager. McCall Capital plans to build a mixed-use development that includes about 300 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments called Enclave at Laurens Village, retail and restaurant space, and perhaps office space and a boutique hotel. The development will also have a park and an easement from the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail to Laurens Road.

10. CANCER SURVIVORS PARK Construction of Cancer Survivors Park is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The $7.5 million park connects Cleveland Park to Falls Park via the Swamp Rab-
bit Trail. The trail is open on weekends only (6–9 p.m. on Fridays and 5 a.m.–9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays) until construction of the Cancer Survivors Park’s education center is complete. Work is expected to end by mid-fall, according to Kay Roper, Cancer Survivors Park’s executive director. In addition to the education center, the park will include a children’s garden, a grot-
to with benches, a sculpture, a small amphitheater, and a man-made waterfall. Programming is expected to start in January. “The survivorship education center is the hub of what the park is all about,” Roper said. She also noted the park should start connecting survivors to programs at the Greenville Health System, Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, the Gibbs Cancer
Center, the American Cancer Society and the Cancer Society of Greenville, and other organizations beginning Jan. 1. “We want to be Switzerland, a neutral source of information,” she said. More than $7.3 million has been raised for the park so far, Roper said. An official grand opening is planned for spring.

John Nolan guides Greenvillians and guests alike on a culinary journey of the city Words by Ariel Turner | Photos by Will Crooks
en years and 40,000 guests later, Greenville History Tours’ John Nolan is just getting started. What began as a walking tour advertised by an A-frame sign on the sidewalk in front of City Hall has grown to include 11 different driving tours and classes, with half of them focusing on Greenville’s growing culinary scene. Two more culinary offerings were just added to the lineup – a breakfast tour launching Aug. 15 and a world coffee course beginning in September. At an Aug. 2 press conference at Soby’s, Nolan announced he’s also writing a book for Arcadia Press called “Lost Restaurants of Greenville.” It’s scheduled to be published fall 2018. “Lost Restaurants of Greenville” will highlight such long-gone eateries as Boston Lunch and Ye Olde Fireplace and the more recent closures of Bistro Europa and American Grocery Restaurant. “Greenville is growing, and I want to grow with it,” Nolan said on the Soby’s patio after Mayor Knox White and Visit Greenville SC’s Chris Stone publicly lauded his contribution to Greenville’s exploding tourism industry. Eight years ago, Nolan experienced his first restaurant tour in New York City and had such a great time that he knew he wanted to bring the concept to Greenville. He met with Carl Sobocinski of Table 301, and the two partnered for the At the Chef’s Table tour, which continues to sell out twice a week. The tour, which allows guests to dine at five chef’s tables, is two and a half to three hours long and makes stops at Table 301’s Nose Dive, Soby’s on the Side, The Lazy Goat, Soby’s New South Cuisine, and Passarelle Bistro. Nolan’s partnering restaurants have since grown to include more than 30 stops, mostly downtown and in the West End, but also extending out to the Augusta Street, Haywood Road, and San Souci areas. He recently partnered with Famous Toastery, Biscuit Head, and LeGrand Bakery, which allowed him to launch the first breakfast tour. “[Breakfast] places closer to downtown are more recent, and I wanted to feature newer places offering unique twists on things,” Nolan said at the beginning of one of his recent trial runs of the tour. The tour begins at 7:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays in front of Joel’s Java at the
Poinsett Hotel. From there, Nolan leads the group around the corner to Famous Toastery, which has been open in the former Two Chefs location for less than a month. After a brief intro by owner Cindy Stone, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, and an Avocado Benny with a side of grits are served. Stone says the half avocado topped with a poached egg, melted pepper jack, and fresh pico de gallo has been a big seller. At Biscuit Head, guests are treated to a mimosa, coffee, and on this occasion, a grilled chicken biscuit with avocado mango salsa, poached egg, and lime crema. Of course, a trip to the jam bar for a selection of house-made spreads and jams to slather on the biscuit is a necessity. Insider tip: Try the sweet potato chai jam. The third and final stop is LeGrand Bakery on Augusta. After three pastry samples, including a chocolate croissant, and a third cup of coffee before 9 a.m., it’s back to the van to head to the starting point. Speaking of coffee, Nolan’s love for it led

Antignani, who is from Italy, has partnered with Nolan to offer an international coffee discovery class at the newly opened 101 Espresso Bar on Wade Hampton Boulevard. Beginning in September, the class will feature Italian and French brewing methods and give guests a look at the roasting process. “My goal is to make great experiences for people whether they’re visitors or local,” Nolan says.

Greenville beekeeper Matt Putnam removes a lid from one of his backyard beehives to check for honey.
THE BEEKEEPER NEXT DOOR Why one Greenville man is keeping bees near downtown ANDREW MOORE | STAFF
Dressed in a white long-sleeved jacket and ventilated hood, Matt Putnam pries open a waist-high box in his backyard and gently reaches inside with a gloved hand to remove a wooden frame, exposing a golden slab of honeycomb crawling with thousands of honeybees.
As Putnam edges closer to the hive, a frenetic buzz emanates from the tiny insects as they enter and leave their abode to zoom off into the air above. But they don’t pay much attention to Putnam as he grabs a tin canister and puffs a thick cloud of smoke over the hive entrance. Putnam explains that the smoke interferes with the bees’ ability to communicate chemically, to warn one another of his presence. “It calms the bees,” he says, squeezing another puff of smoke from the canister. “I’m not a fan of getting stung.” While one would expect to see Putnam caring for his hives on a farm in the countryside, his surroundings are anything but pastoral. In fact, his backyard is located in a
densely populated Greenville neighborhood off Highland Drive. He’s not alone. Putnam is aware of several other bee hobbyists within the city limits. His neighbor, Lee White, for instance, is a beekeeper of four hives with more than 80,000 bees. White, an eighth grader at Hughes Academy, started a business last year and sold 130 jars of honey. And next month, Farm Fresh Fast, a restaurant that’s located at 860 S. Church Street, plans to install a rooftop hive to source local honey for recipes. “Bees are sort of the new backyard chickens,” says Jennifer Tsuruda, a honeybee researcher and beekeeping specialist at Clemson University.
One reason behind the rise of urban beekeeping is the desire for homegrown and organic food. “People want to know where their food comes from,” she says. “And they want to feel more connected to the environment.” For Putnam, it’s all about the honey. “I use it as a sugar substitute,” he says. “I’m probably addicted at this point.” Honey, besides tasting great, offers health benefits, says Putnam, who swears it helps his joints. And propolis, a material that bees use to seal small cracks and gaps in their hive, is a natural antibiotic. Every spring, Putnam slips on his beekeeping suit to protect himself from stingers and extracts honey from his two backyard
hives, which contain about 40,000 bees each. Last year, he harvested roughly 30 pounds of honey. “I don’t waste a pound of it,” he says. Putnam, a software consultant for Hitachi Solutions, fell into beekeeping by accident. In 2014, he found an article about beekeeping in Edible Upcountry, a local food publication, and his interest was piqued. “The article made it seem so doable,” says Putnam. “At first, I couldn’t find the time to start. But I eventually quit fighting the urge and just fell into it from there.” Putnam read some books and eventually purchased his protective suit, bees, hives, and equipment from the Carolina Honey Bee Company in Travelers Rest. “It’s not the cheapest hobby,” he says. “I probably spent several hundred dollars.” Putnam uses Langstroth hives, patented by the Rev. Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth in Philadelphia in 1852. The hives, which usually cost more than $100, resemble a filing cabinet of eight to 10 frames that hang like files, covered in honeycomb. According to Putnam, they are especially easy to harvest. He simply removes the top from the cabinet and pulls out a frame. But every year presents new challenges. “The learning curve is pretty steep,” he says. “I’ve had to read a lot of forums and books to improve my honey harvest.” Like most beekeepers, Putnam didn’t harvest any honey during the first year, because the bees needed food to survive through the winter. “Ideally, you want to start a colony of bees in the late winter or early spring, because they have to grow during that first year,” he says. “After the first year, there is a small window to harvest honey. They start making honey around late March to the middle of June.” But a strong hive can produce up to 100 pounds of surplus honey, according to Putnam, who expects to harvest more than 50 pounds this year. Luckily, his neighbors have no problem with his new hobby. And neither does the city, which doesn’t require a permit to keep bees. “It doesn’t hurt to handout some leftover honey to neighbors,” he says. According to Putnam, beekeeping has made him more environmentally conscious. For instance, he’s quit using herbicides and other chemicals associated with the country’s declining bee population. “I’d like to think I’m actually helping the country’s bee population recover,” he says. Since the 1940s, the number of managed honeybee colonies in the United States has declined from 5 million to 2.5 million because of various threats, including invasive species, diseases, pesticides, and habitat destruction, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Like Putnam, a new group of backyard

beekeepers has sprung up to “save the bees,” according to Susan Jones, president of the Piedmont Beekeepers Association. “Beekeeping has traditionally been limited to farms,” she says. “But I think people everywhere want to feel like they’re actually doing something to help out.” According to the USDA, $30 billion a year in agriculture depends on the health of honeybees, which pollinate more than 90 flowering crops, including most fruits and vegetables. But about 30 percent of the country’s managed colonies have died, according to the research nonprofit Bee Informed Partnership. Around a third of the deaths are related to colony collapse disorder, which occurs when a colony, except for the queen and immature bees, has randomly died. Some beekeepers point to a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids as a possible cause of colony collapse, a link rejected by Bayer and other manufacturers. According to Tsuruda, monocultural farming practices, diseases, and pesticides could be responsible for colony collapse disorder. However, she says there isn’t a definitive cause. “We’ve found that many things impact honeybee health,” she says. The varroa mite, for instance, has become a growing problem for beekeepers to solve over the years. Introduced to South Carolina in the 1990s, the parasitic insect survives off the blood of developing bees, transmits diseases, and eradicates hives from the inside out. Putnam regularly checks his colonies for the mites and sprays a treatment to keep them out of his hives. “I do what I can, but there’s no guarantee they won’t get in,” he says. However, Putnam says pesticides pose an
even larger threat to his bees. “I constantly worry about neighbors spraying their gardens for mosquitos and other pests, because chemicals can drift over to my place and affect my bees,” he says. Many people misuse pesticides, according to Jones. “I think some people are afraid of bees and spray to keep them away from their homes. I also think people overspray for mosquitos, because they’re afraid of Zika virus,” she says. But insecticides aren’t the only chemical harming bees, according to Putnam, who claims herbicides disrupt the ability of bees to learn and remember, reducing the chances of colony survival. He also says they deplete food for his bees when neighbors spray weeds, goldenrod, and spring flowers, before planting their gardens in the spring. “Those weeds aren’t weeds,” he says. “They’re forage for the bees.” Luckily, Putnam has only lost one of his hives to “robbing,” which occurs when a weak beehive is attacked by invaders from other hives. He couldn’t explain what weakened his hive but speculated that pesticides or herbicides could have been involved. That’s why Putnam has used his hives to educate nearby neighbors. “I get a lot of questions from curious neighbors,” he says. “I like it, because it gives me a chance to talk about bees and why they’re struggling.” Putnam even dissuaded a nearby neighbor from spraying for mosquitos last spring. “When you think about all the colonies that are dying off, it’s hard to say whether or not I’m actually impacting the global population,” he says. “I think education is a bigger component for me. I’m sort of an ambassador for the species.”

Yes, You Need a Realtor Allen Tate CEO Pat Riley shares why you need professional advice – not just when you’re buying or selling a home Inventory is low, home prices are rising, and just about every home buyer you know is competing against other buyers for the right house. So in today’s market, do you really need a Realtor to help you sell your home? Actually, you need a Realtor more than ever in today’s fast-paced real estate mar-
ket. In fact, you need a Realtor even if buying or selling a home is not even in the short-term forecast. “You need a Realtor for Life,” says Allen Tate Companies President and CEO Pat Riley in the June edition of Carolinas Market Update. Most of us think about retaining the services of a Realtor when it’s time to buy or sell a home. We often select our Realtor by chance – calling the name on the yard sign, contacting the person whose photo appears online next to a property, or ask-
ing a friend. But all of these things carry risk. The agent on the sign represents the seller’s interests. The person who appears online may not be associated with the home; they just bought advertising. And the person your friend suggests might be right for them, but not what’s best for you. A long-term relationship with a Realtor helps eliminate these risks – and offers ongoing reward for your entire homeownership journey, when it’s time upgrade, refinance or add insurance coverage.
“Think about it. We surround ourselves with professionals to manage things. We don’t find someone new every time we get sick, pay our bills, mow the grass, have the car serviced or the dog groomed. And yet, we find ourselves selecting a new Realtor every time we are ready to make what is likely our largest purchase,” said Riley. Many people don’t realize that a Realtor can find the home you want or need,American Eagle B even before it comes on the market. A Realtor will help you make your best offer, continued on PAGE 25

HOME Real Estate News continued increasing your chances of winning the contract. And your Realtor will make sure your home is ready to show off to potential buyers. “A common misunderstanding is that buyers today will buy anything,” said Riley. “Buyers are particular. Homes in great condition, that are current and priced right for the market, will move quickly. But homes that are outdated, in need of repair, or priced unrealistically will linger.” Sellers often have unrealistic price expectations because they turn to an automated valuation tool online to determine the value of their home. Unfortunately, online calculators are based on things like tax values and square footage, not details like condition and location of the home in relation to others in the neighborhood. “The chance of the same homes of the same age in the same neighborhood having the same value is slim to none,” said Riley. “A Realtor lives in your world and serves your marketplace. They can make that differentiation.”

CHRIS BOTTI Trumpeter Chris Botti is one of the few jazz artists who has managed to cross over into major pop success while maintaining some credibility in the oldschool jazz world. He’s best known for the platinum-selling “Italia” and the Grammy-winning “Impressions.” Both blend his warm, confident tone with lush orchestral backings. From the start of his solo career, Botti displayed a knack for composition, frequently writing the bulk of the songs and playing in the style of late-period Miles Davis. Since then, Botti has taken a more mainstream approach, but he has a great ear for standards and is still an inventive, intuitive soloist.

film has always been my goal.” What’s perhaps the most interesting about “Risers” is that about half the crew for the film is made of volunteers from restaurants and bars around the Upstate. “Both [co-writer and director of photography] John-Paul Newton and I know a lot of people who work in the bars and restaurants,” Martell says. “Greenville is a food-and-drink town, so you almost can’t avoid getting to know people in that busi-
ness, plus John-Paul actually used to work at The Owl on Wade Hampton Boulevard. As we started getting ready for the shoot, we started going to our friends and asking for help and volunteers, and it just ended up that our friends in the service industry were interested and wanted to be part of the film.” In fact, Martell actually sees a parallel between creating a successful restaurant and making a movie. “You have to build a crew and do a lot of prep work, and you need a lot of money to do it,” he says. Martell got to know Newton through the latter’s work as a photographer, and as the two became friends, they realized they had a shared passion. “We both love horror movies,” Martell says. “So I just said, ‘Hey, let’s make a horror movie together.’ We ended up writing a script over four years.” There’s a brief cameo by a local bartender in the film, as well. Kirk Ingram, who crafts some seriously creative high-end cocktails at Vault & Vator in downtown Greenville, appears at one point in “Risers,” and (spoiler alert) he doesn’t last too long. Martell would like to use Ingram’s appearance, as well as his service-industry crew, to forge some sponsorship arrangements with restaurants and bars around the Upstate. “We’d like to have a partnership with Vault & Vator, since we’re going to kill their bartender,” Martell says with a laugh, “but we’d also like to get a sponsorship or partnership going with a local brewery.” Martell and Newton are seeking funding to complete their shoot, and Martell says that he might have figured out why their fundraising efforts so far have been met with some resistance. “I did some research, and I found two or three local features that reached their goal on Kickstarter but didn’t get made for whatever reason,” he says. “So we have to prove to people that we’re worth investing in, because they might feel like they’ve been burned before.” For more information, visit risersmovie. com.

In “Risers,” the new horror movie being filmed around town by writer/director Jeff Martell, a group of teens are aching to leave their hometown. But the city doesn’t want them to leave, unleashing a horde of monsters to stop them. “It’s kind of a throwback to 1990s-era Wes Craven, with a little bit of John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’ thrown in,” Martell says. “It centers on this group of teenagers looking forward to escaping their small town, and the neighborhood starts attacking them like an autoimmune response. A couple of them get picked off, and then we follow a couple of them who are trying to figure out what’s going on and trying to survive.” “Risers” is Martell’s first venture into

The Rise And Potential Fall Of Solar In South Carolina By Ryan Davis
When it comes to solar energy in South Carolina thereâ€™s good news and bad news. The good news is the incentives are better than ever for homeowners to put solar on their roof. The bad news is the incentives are going away and residential solar may not make financial sense in the not too distant future. Over the last two years you have probably seen solar systems popping up on homes all over the Upstate. This is the result of a combination of federal tax incentives, South Carolina state tax incentives, utility rebates, and solar equipment costs at an all time low. The combination of these incentives has created the perfect storm for homeowners to take advantage of getting solar put on their homes without paying a dime upfront and enjoying less expensive, clean power for years to come. In the past, solar was considered a product for environmentalists or the rich. The incentives have paved the way for everyone, regardless of political
beliefs, environmental views or income level, to get a solar system for less of a monthly payment than their current monthly electric company bill. There has never been a better time to go solar! This storm is passing and the solar incentives are likely to fade quickly. The first metric that is talked about the most is the falling cost of materials. While itâ€™s true the price of solar products have fallen rapidly during recent years, prices have now leveled off; however with new tariff increases possibly going into effect, it is likely that materials will be harder to obtain and costs will have a floor much higher than what we are currently seeing. The next major change in store is the 30% federal tax credit, which is set to decrease to 26% in 2020, 22% in 2021, and be gone altogether by 2022. No end date has been announced by South Carolina for their 25% state solar tax credit.
The third issue the solar industry faces in South Carolina is the 2% net metering cap is approximately half full. A net metering agreement was passed in 2014 that allows homeowners to earn full retail value bill credit for each kilowatthour produced from their solar system that goes back onto the grid. Once the 2% cap is met, customers will no longer receive net metering credits on their bill, making the return time on their investment much longer than before. Once all of the incentives are gone, going solar in South Carolina will only make financial sense if equipment costs somehow fall lower than where they currently are and utility rates rise faster than what they are today. What does this mean for us today? Solar has never been easier or cheaper to attain than it is today. Local programs offer solar ownership to homeowners for no money out of pocket and a bill that is less than what they pay today. Homeowners in South Carolina can currently take advantage of a 30% federal tax credit, 25% state tax credit, and local programs
that allow the homeowner to pay no money out of pocket for the system and simply pay the balance over 10,15, or 20 years. The average solar system in South Carolina would typically cost around $30,000. A homeowner would get back $9,000 (30%) on their federal taxes and $7,500 (25%) on their state taxes. That means the homeowners net cost of the solar system would only be $13,500! Instead of writing a check, the program allows you to pay the system off over the next 10,15, or 20 years with no money out of pocket and a payment much cheaper than what it currently is. Keep in mind; these tax incentives are credits, and not deductions. Therefore, you would get back the 30% and 25% on your tax bill. As the program incentives come to an end over these next few years, the backlog of customers is going to grow quickly. The best thing for you to do is take the first step and schedule a free energy assessment to determine if your house is a good fit for solar and what your financial benefits will be.

Pianist Dan Overly wraps up his second summer as a Tanglewood Fellow

CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
As a child, Dan Overly told his father he wanted to be a professional trombonist just like his dad. The problem was Overly wasn’t quite old enough to play the instrument, so his father told him to take piano lessons first. That turned out to be great advice. Overly, a pianist from Greenville, is spending his second summer as a Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s summer academy for advanced musical study. Be that as it may, Overly never abandoned that childhood dream. “I still pull out the trombone occasionally, but only for family members,” he said. Tanglewood has provided Overly with the opportunity to interact with some of the world’s best musicians. The school’s alumni include Leonard Bernstein and Wynton Marsalis. Meanwhile, about 20 percent of the members of American symphony orchestras, and 30 percent of all first-chair players, have studied at Tanglewood. “All of the faculty members I work with are legends in their fields,” he said, “and I work with them closely, not just 20 minutes in a master class.” This summer, Overly has already per-
formed with pianists Lee Musiker in a tribute concert to Ella Fitzgerald and Alex Smith in a concert that explored humor in song. Overly has also performed with mezzo-sopranos Stephanie Blythe and Kelly Newberry, as well as prominent baritone Sanford Sylvan. Being a collaborative pianist has forced Overly to broaden his repertoire. Soloists even in the most intense competitions may have three or four concertos ready at a time. Collaborative pianists often have different full recitals every week. “The volume of repertoire they play all the time is staggering,” Overly said. Tanglewood is known for its support of contemporary music, and Overly said he’s had to learn some “gnarly music.” Last year, he had to learn four large contemporary pieces in one week. “You have to learn incredibly quickly and at a high level of refinement,” he said. “A collaborative pianist needs to be as strong or stronger than the other partners.” Some composers, Overly said, write their absolute best music for piano in sonatas for violin, cello, or clarinet. “There’s an endless amount of music to explore,” he said. Overly, a Bob Jones University piano performance graduate, received a Fulbright
scholarship and earned a master’s degree from the Vienna Conservatory in song interpretation and opera coaching. He graduated with honors from the Cleveland Institute of Music. As a chamber musician, Overly has performed at the Kennedy Center, the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford uponAvon, and the Mozarthaus Vienna. He recently appeared in a recital with Karl-Heinz Schutz of the Wiener Philharmoniker. In the fall, Overly will participate in a fellowship for collaborative pianists at Yale University that is designed to help launch their professional careers. There, he hopes to expand his repertoire, refine his skills, and make career connections. Eventually, Overly hopes to have a position where he can both perform and teach, something he said he appears destined to do. “Both my parents are teachers and three out of four of my grandparents are teachers,” he said. Overly said in some ways being a Tanglewood Fellow is stressful; two weeks ago he played in four different recitals. “But it never feels stressful because there is so much support,” he said. “The encouragement from faculty members gives me the confidence that maybe I’m not just pursuing a mirage in the desert, that I can have a professional music career.”

from out of town and mixing it with some really solid local bands.” This year’s lineup features headliner Junior Astronomers, a passionate indie-rock outfit from Charlotte, N.C., whose longawaited second album, “Body Language,” has just come out. The band, which hasn’t played Greenville in two years, will be joined by Greenville’s Brother Oliver, the Francis Vertigo, Apricot Blush, and Italo & The Passions, among others. “I think all of these bands from the Upstate deserve more attention,” Theall says. “And I’m happy to be able to give them a platform. I want people to realize what’s going on in their backyard.” Rock the Ranch will feature the Dead 27’s, Dangermuffin, Sam Burchfield, and other local and regional favorites. But according to Kyle Nicholson, who co-organized the festival, the purpose of the event is bigger than just the bands. “My friend Michael Gray and I were thick as thieves since high school, and we played a lot of music together,” Nicholson says. “He passed away very unexpectedly in his sleep in January of 2015, and we wanted to do something to honor him and bring people together.” That’s where Nicholson’s friend Nick Crenshaw came in. “Nick and his family have a farm on the outskirts of Seneca that used to be the venue for a huge concert series in the 1970s,” Nicholson says. “It was called Charlie B’s Ranch Arena, and bands like Fleetwood Mac, ZZ Top, REO Speedwagon, and more all came and played there in little old Seneca. So I called Nick and told him my crazy idea about reviving that concert series as a tribute to Michael.” Proceeds from the festival will be divided between three worthy causes: the Shriners Hospital for Children, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Kathy’s Home, an organization that helps refugee children in Taiwan. “Nick has cystic fibrosis, so we wanted money to go to that,” Nicholson says. “We’re both passionate about the Shriners Hospital, and then we asked Michael’s family to choose a charity, and

they chose Kathy’s Home.” As for what he learned from the first edition of Rock the Ranch, which took place last October, Nicholson laughs about his inexperience while preparing for last year. “I had no idea about licensing and permits, and no idea how to promote the festival on social media,” he says. “Now that we have that learning curve out of the way, we’ve been able to put more effort into finding these amazing bands to honor our friend Michael and to revive this historic festival.”

There are two daylong music festivals in the Upstate this Saturday, and though they might seem like very different events, they share some important things in common. Future Chord Fest, which kicks off at 1 p.m. at the Spinning Jenny in Greer, and Rock the Ranch Music Festival, which starts at 3 p.m. at Charlie B’s Ranch Arena in Seneca, are both returning for their second year. And they both pay tribute to great music from the area, with nods to the national scene as well. Future Chord Fest is the brainchild of Jeremy Theall, founder of the Future Chord artist management and event promotion company. Theall drew around 300 people to last year’s inaugural fest, which featured local acts like Carpoolparty and regional bands like Athens, Ga.-based math-rockers Art Contest, Atlanta’s dancemusic duo We Roll Like Madmen, and Myrtle Beach psychedelic rockers Canopy Hands. It was a great turnout for a first-time festival, but Theall felt there were some things he could’ve done differently to bring more people out. “Last year, about half the bands were from out of town. I felt like what I was doing was playing a more tastemaking role, and so there were a lot of bands who hadn’t played in Greenville before,” he says. “What I learned was that I could’ve had higher attendance if I’d done what I’m doing this year, which is getting a good headliner

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Stand-Up w/ Shivani Nadarajah Alchemy Comedy Theater is primarily known for improv shows, but occasionally they like to mix things up. Saturday night will be a stand-up show with headliner Shivani Nadarajah, an Alchemy performer who began doing stand-up about four years ago. Nadarajah, who was born to Sri Lankan parents and raised in Canada before moving to the South as a teenager, says her comedy is “another way to bridge the gap culturally.” “Most of it is about being raised by immigrant parents and the challenges of doing that in the South. And being 30 and unmarried, which is like being 60 in brown years,” she quips. The show’s name, “The Final Night of 30,” will also inspire a few of Nadarajah’s punchlines. “It’s the eve of my 31st birthday, so a lot will be poking fun at that,” she says. In addition to performing in Charleston, Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., and Los Angeles, Nadarajah opened for comedian Nicole Byer of MTV’s “Girl Code” for a January show at Clemson University. Some of her favorite stand-up comedians include Russell Peters, Aziz Ansari, Jo Koy, and Allie Wong. “I love any kind of minority comedian right now,” Nadarajah says. —Emily Pietras

Travers Brothership w/ Griffin Dean
Welcome to our newest Doctor of Audiology, Dr. Maggie Robertson Dr. Robertson looks forward to serving patients in both the Greenville & Travelers Rest offices
Gottrocks 200 Eisenhower Drive 9 p.m. | $10 gottrocksgreenville.com
The music on Travers Brothership’s 2016 album “A Way to Survive” sounds for all the world like some sort of lost early ’70s soul classic. The production is rich and gritty, emphasizing the rhythm section’s effortless groove, the funky electric piano and Hammond B-3 touches, and singer Kyle Travers’ emotional testifying. The Asheville, N.C., band, led by twin brothers Kyle and Eric, might call themselves “alternative funk and soul” in their bio, but you can leave out the “alternative” part. “I think the material that we wrote for ‘A Way to Survive’ demanded that old-school production in order to make the songs greet the ears how they were intended to,” Kyle Travers says. “We all love the production of so many of the ’60s and ’70s records and thought it was an appropriate approach for the album. As far as writing the material, the old-school vibe unconsciously sneaks its way into the music because of all of the older influences we have.” —Vincent Harris

Tides In Transit (EP release show) w/ Not Cops and The Apartment Club Radio Room 110 Poinsett Highway 8 p.m. | $7 radioroomgreenville.com
The three songs on the Easley sextet Tides In Transit’s new self-titled EP confidently mix anthemic late-’90s style alternative rock (think Live or Third Eye Blind) with a serious progressive streak. The choruses might be all big hooks and catchy riffs, but the rhythms through the verses twist and turn in unpredictable directions. They’re a three-guitar band, but rather than trade in show solos, they prefer to explore complex melodic ideas, weaving riffs and melodies around one another with the occasional touch of icy synths. “Our style is a melting pot of different genres,” says guitarist Justin Roe. “And it all comes together to make our sound. We feel like we have enough different styles of everybody.” Roe says the band picked the three songs on the EP from a larger repertoire because they best displayed the different sides of their music. “We’d fleshed those out the most, and they showed what our sound is all about,” he says. —Vincent Harris school student, a letter of free/reduced lunch eligibility from the Greenville County School District, or an EBT card for the family.

Upstate S.C. Law Enforcement Memorial Softball Tournament
Awake At Last w/ The Funeral Portrait
Ground Zero 3052 Howard St., Spartanburg 7 p.m. | $10 reverbnation.com/venue/groundzero2 Awake At Last creates a dizzying style of progressive rock that’s as complex as it is passionate. On their just-out new EP, “Life/Death/ Rebirth,” singer Vincent Torres rages over a twisted tower of shifting rhythms, unpredictable song structures, and brutally intricate riffs, trying to maintain a positive outlook in the face of anger and desperation. Much of that struggle has its root in the nonstop touring the band did behind their previous release; they’ve been averaging around 200 shows a year since they formed in 2011. “The root of the EP comes from the struggles of touring and the depression you can sometimes feel. That’s the personal story,” Torres says. “But the songs are more about overcoming those struggles and finding the human and spiritual connections we’re all lacking these days.” Those are complicated ideas that almost by definition need adventurous music to express them, so that’s what the band created. “The music comes out complex, because we’re going through complex stuff as a band,” he says. “I try to use the lyrics to be the positivity of it all, but the music represents the clashing of swords in the battle we’re going through — the anxiety and fear.” —Vincent Harris
