Bridges to a Brighter Future gives students facing challenges a path to success n story by NEIL COTIAUX | photo WILL CROOKS

What do Nichole LaMarche, Kendaija Witt, and Kerry Black have in common? Each grew up in a family of limited means. Each confronted a significant challenge. And each persisted to emerge as a star student. One by one, Nichole, Kendaija, and Kerry have reached deep inside themselves to create a happier, self-affirming vision of their future, thanks to a donor-funded program at Furman University. Called Bridges to a Brighter Future, the threeyear initiative offers rising 10th-through 12thgraders mired in hardscrabble conditions an op-

portunity to emerge from their shell, make new friends, build confidence, and set their sights on college. Participation is by invitation only, says Carrie Silver, the program’s director, whose infectious smile lights up the hallways where she mingles with, listens to, and encourages her students. Participants are nominated annually, mostly by guidance counselors and teachers at Greenville County’s public and charter high schools. Only 25 of 125 applicants are chosen each year. Every student selected must be eligible for

PARTICIPANT SELECTION STATISTICS: Approximately 125 students are nominated and interviewed annually. Twenty-five (25) students are selected each year based on their potential and “need” for the program. These 25 rising tenth graders join two classes of continuing rising eleventh and twelfth grade students for a total of approximately 75 students participating in the high school component annually. After high school graduation, students continue in Crossing the Bridge. subsidized lunch, demonstrate a social-service need, possess a 3.0 average, and have a clean disciplinary record. “So when our partners in ninth grade nominate ninth-graders, we find these young people who have a desire to create a life that maybe wouldn’t be possible for them without a little bit of extra support,” Silver says. Kadian Patterson is one of the 75 achievers currently enrolled. “I’m not just another girl in a messed-up life I have. Everybody has a story, my story means something, and people care about me and I care about other people here,” the rising Hillcrest senior says. Kadian has been through the first two stages of Bridges’ curriculum: a four-week academic enrichment and residential program held each summer; a year-round Saturday program focused on tutoring and personal development, held monthly; and a college orientation and retention program called Crossing the Bridge that includes check-ins with Bridges graduates during their time at a college or technical school. On Saturdays, Silver says, instructors from the community hold two tutoring blocks. Optional activities include STEM programs, community service, and outdoor events like apple-picking. There’s also a college planning module. “So it’s myself and we have two assistant directors and we each take a grade and teach what you need to be thinking about right now on your path to college,” she says. The day includes a nutritious lunch. “There’s a lot of food insecurity

in Greenville,” Silver acknowledges. The program’s hand-picked participants have seen much, perhaps too much, in their young lives. Fifty-nine percent come from divorced or single-parent homes; 87 percent subsist on household incomes less than $25,000. Nearly 70 percent of all enrollees are African Americans and Hispanics. Nichole LaMarche’s mother died a year ago and her father is unable to work, so she scrapes together a living. “I also struggled with just having to provide for my little sister and having to keep a job, having to provide my own transportation, saving up money for my own car, and just doing the things teenagers shouldn’t have to do,” the Hillcrest student says. She aspires to be a police officer. Kerry Black, a Southside High student, says he’s dealt with an abusive father, suffered a tumor in his jaw, and like Nichole had to support his family. He aspires to be an attorney. Kendaija Witt, a Mauldin High student, experienced homelessness and suffers from depression. “This is my second family … and they’ve allowed me to be myself at times when I thought that I had to put a mask on, but here, literally, you can just be yourself with no judgment, and that’s what I love about Bridges,” she says. Kendaija looks forward to becoming a nurse, perhaps a surgeon. Bridges’ graduating seniors hear about budgeting, financial aid, and perseverance and are paired with college buddies. Once in college, Bridges keeps in touch and can assist with tutoring, housing, and other concerns. “So they really have somebody who understands them and has known them since they were 15 to help them on that journey,” Silver says. Bridges is about much more than getting into college, Nichole believes. “It opens your heart and your mind and really, you get to discover yourself and your future,” she says.

I’m not just another girl in a messed-up life I have. Everybody has a story, my story means something, and people care about me and I care about other people here."

I also struggled with just having to provide for my little sister and having to keep a job, having to provide my own transportation, saving up money for my own car, and just doing the things teenagers shouldn’t have to do."

LOCAL SURGEON KNITS PORT PILLOWS FOR CANCER PATIENTS n story by MELODY CUENCA n photos by WILL CROOKS

Every time I knit something, I feel like I’m putting a part of myself in it.” – Dr. Sharon Ben-Or

NEED TO KNOW NAME: Sharon Ben-Or OCCUPATION: Thoracic Surgeon Thoracic surgery includes operations for diseases of the chest. This may involve either benign or malignant conditions of the lung, pleura, esophagus, or mediastinum. (Source: ghs.org) TRAINING: University of North Carolina Hospitals, Lankenau Hospital, and Perelman School of Medicine/University of Pennsylvania TIME AT PRISMA HEALTH: Five Years AVERAGE TIME TO MAKE A PILLOW: One Hour As a 9-year-old girl, Sharon Ben-Or learned knitting as a tool in math class. Many years later, the Greenville thoracic surgeon continues to knit, but now with a different purpose. Ben-Or credits her fourth grade teacher for her knitting skills. “She’s the one who’s really helping these patients,” she says. “If she hadn’t taught me, I wouldn’t be doing this.” Now that she’s conquered multiplication, Ben-Or knits pillows for her patients. But not the type of pillow you’re imagining. “I was diagnosed with cancer a couple of years ago,” she says. “I had a port for chemotherapy and they gave me a port pillow, which is a pillow you put under your seatbelt.” The port pillow acts as a cushion between the port and seatbelt to prevent irritation. Usually the caretaker, Ben-Or experienced first-hand the journey of being a patient, but she believes her pain led to purpose. “Maybe this was just a weird way for me to help my patients,” she says. “A lot of patients have disclosed to me that they feel better knowing they have a physician who’s been through this and understands.” While she doesn’t share her cancer story with every patient, Ben-

PORT PILLOW:

A portacath is a small port placed beneath the skin so cancer patients can receive their chemotherapy treatments. It is often uncomfortable when a seatbelt rubs it. A port pillow attaches onto the seatbelt to protect the port from being irritated. Or tells those who need comfort in knowing someone truly understands their pain. “I don’t want to take away from their story,” she says. Making the port pillows allows Ben-Or to form connections with her patients. “It’s a moment where I can bond with them,” she says. “But I just want to be able to let them know that even though my time with them might be brief, that it’s still important.” Ben-Or has worked in the Prisma Health Division of Thoracic Surgery for the past five years. “I operate on everything in the chest but the heart,” she says. Although she’s finished her chemotherapy, Ben-Or has ongoing treatment and doctor appointments. “Everything’s been looking good,” she says, “but there’s always the anxiety when you have that followup because you don’t know.” Experiencing the isolation and anxiety of fighting cancer, she hopes to offer understanding and comfort to her patients. “Every time I knit something, I feel like I’m putting a part of myself in it,” Ben-Or says.

For more information on "The Act to Establish Pay Equity" visit bit.ly/SCPayEquity

August 22 marked Black Women’s Equal Pay Day. Far from a celebration, this day represents how far Black women nationwide had to work into 2019 to match what white, nonHispanic men earned in 2018. Nationally, Black women working full-time, year-round earned 61 cents for every dollar earned by white men working full-time, year-round. This 39 cents gap is almost twice the gap experienced by women overall, but it is even worse for Black women in South Carolina — in 2017, they earned only 57.5 cents for every dollar earned by white non-Hispanic men in South Carolina, among the largest wage gaps in the country. The gap reflects how Black women’s work is too often undervalued and underpaid. But the pay gap is an issue facing all South Carolina women, who statewide earn only 77 cents for every dollar earned by South Carolina men. It is long past time for us to do something. In January, we introduced “The Act to Establish Pay Equity” into both chambers of the General Assembly, known as S. 372 in the Senate and H. 3615 in the House. The bill would enshrine in state law a commitment to fair pay, not just for women but for all workers in South Carolina. It would promote accountability by requiring employers to have job-related reasons consistent with business necessity to justify pay differences. It would protect against retaliation when workers challenge illegal pay practices, limit how employers use prior salary to determine future wages, and improve remedies for pay discrimination. The bill clarifies that discrimination — whether based on sex, race, or another factor — has no place in pay decision-making, and would help root out discrimination uniquely experienced by Black women because of their sex and race. The math isn’t hard. Black women contribute enormously to their families’ economic stability and this is increasingly true for all women in South Carolina. An estimated 70.3% of South Carolina mothers are primary, sole, or co-bread winners for their families. Equal pay means more dollars to cover child care and school expenses, car payments, household bills, and health care costs while boosting consumer spending and the state’s economy. South Carolina is one of only four states without an explicit equal pay law. Taking concrete action to promote equal pay would help Black women in particular, South Carolina women and workers overall, and South Carolina families. We cannot afford to wait.

Travelers Rest – "Get Into Your Element" n story by KIMBERLY COLLIER

Literally, where the travelers rested, Travelers Rest got it's beginning in the early 1800's as weary travelers were passing through and needed a place to stop before making the treacherous journey into the mountains. Travelers would also end up "wintering" in the small farming community and continue their travels northward after the winter season. In 1794, a new wagon road to Asheville and Knoxville was completed and the road brought many travelers through the farming community - especially in the fall months, these travelers ended up camping and staying overnight at local farmhouses and taverns. In 1808 the Travelers Rest post office was established and the mail was delivered by stage, which ran from Asheville to Greenville. As the stopover post continue to grow local one room school houses operated throughout the area, but in 1883 the "offcial" Travelers Rest Academy opened which would later become the Travelers Rest High School. In 1888 the railway began construction of a line that would run along the Reedy River in Greenville and continue north to River Falls. Controversy would abound, the railway caused a rivalry to develop between town residents in the lower and upper sections of Travelers Rest – and suprisingly enough, the controversy ran deep enough for two seperate railroad stations to be constructed.

riginating from Colombia, ceramicist Diana Farfán made a home for herself and her complex sculptures in Greenville. With a passion for political, social, and environmental issues, her artwork touches on everything from tension among political parties and immigration journeys to animal rights and planet protection. NEED TO KNOW Farfán’s language of choice ARTIST: Diana Farfán transcends the FROM: Bogotá, Colombia spoken or written word — visual art. MEDIUM: “I feel that I ceramics and mixed media have more skills and ability to speak THEMES: through my hands, social and political issues through the mateSee her work at dianafarfan.com rial, through the color and shapes,” she says. “So art just became my vocabulary.” Communicating complex ideas and forming narratives around controversial topics comes easily for her through art. “It’s a beautiful, peaceful effort,” she says. Although some art is intended to simply bring beauty, Farfán believes her work is more challenging to viewers. “Sometimes art isn’t comfortable and sometimes art isn’t easy for everyone,” she says. Her current series called “The Conversation Starters” blends functional and expressive art to create salt and pepper shaker sets. “Each theme has something to do with the meaning that is important for me through my work, which is politics, social issues, environmental issues, human issues,” Farfán says. Becoming a U.S. citizen in 2012, Farfán was intrigued by the complex political system of the nation. So naturally, she used art to help her interpret the world around her. Noticing the tension between political parties, she uses the symbolic elephant and donkey in much of her work. In “The Conversation Starters,” the two animals make up pairs of unique, detailed shakers called “The Peacemakers.” “Because this is a set, I try to make them have a conversation between them,” she says. Other themes of the series include “The Animal Lovers,” “The Planet Saviors,” “The Healers,” and “The Cultural Bearers” — each touching on important issues to Farfán. “I just want to create these questions about what we as humans are doing to the planet and how are we taking care of our resources,” she says. In addition to creating art full-time, Farfán works with organizations to raise awareness about art, animals, and environmental protection. She teaches workshops and visits schools to teach art as a tool for understanding the world. She also works with Palmetto Luna to provide equal opportunities for Hispanic/ Latino artists and create diversity within the art scene. “I try to be loyal to my principles,” she says. Farfán’s work can be seen and purchased at dianafarfan.com.

A Hip-Hop Starr Is Born In Spartanburg

1O TONY AWARDS ®

I N C LU D I N G

BEST MUSICAL

VINCENT HARRIS Contributor

Listening to Charleston rapper Benny Starr’s just-released new record The Water Album, is the audio equivalent of watching a boxer in his prime move around the ring. On the album’s 12 tracks, Starr jabs, stings and moves with stunning grace, spitting soul-searching, world-view building rhymes over live instruments and bringing jazz, soul, funk and gospel to the table with ease. “Black boy tell me how you really feel,” Starr raps on “Sublime” over subtle, pulsing percussion “I just wanna build with you/ Black girl tell me how you really feel/I just wanna keep it real with you/I wanna live better, eat better/I wanna love better, sleep better.” The album as a whole is an exciting artistic achievement, and it’s an especially impressive accomplishment when one considers that it was recorded live at the Charleston Music Hall rather than constructed in a studio. To listen to The Water Album is to be fully immersed in sound, as Starr and his crew (including The Four20s (Vontá E-Nuf, 95 GRVMZ, and Rodrick Cliché), Elliott Smith, Jimmy Choate, Matt Monday, Niecy Blues, Poppy Native, Contour, Shaniqua McCants and Terraphonics, create a sound that is full, fluid and ever-changing, like its namesake. It’s an artistic peak for a fast-rising artist; Starr released the album just over a week after he became the first rapper to perform at the Spoleto Festival’s finale. And to think, it all started on Spartanburg. Back in 2006, Starr began attending USC Upstate as a marketing major with a lifelong interest in hip-hop music. It went from a hobby to an occupation when he met a group of people who encouraged his musical growth and helped him create his first album, 2015’s Free Lunch. Free Lunch was recorded at the Magic Factory Studio in Spartanburg with Doug Long producing, and Starr began building a support system that helps sustain him to this day. He met his manager Troy Richardson, graphics artist Sergio Thomas, photographer Nickos Williams, Starr’s DJ Derrick Wilson (aka DJ D DUBB), business partner Tim Ford and others in Spartanburg. “These people all encouraged me to pursue a career in rap music,” Starr says. “The engineer and the producers who helped to launch my career. My first mix tapes and the Free Lunch album were all created in the Up-

It was such an important time for my development and my confidence.” That’s one of the reasons that Starr is looking forward to coming back here for a show at the Radio Room on Friday night. “I’m coming back up there because so many of my core fans are in the Upstate in addition to the Low Country,” he says. “I want to give them an incredible show, and push the boundaries, give them DJ’s, live musicians, and I want to try to give them back as much love as they gave me, as an artist who found his voice.” And Starr certainly seems to have found his voice on A Water Album, which builds impressively on his debut. “I knew I couldn’t make Free Lunch again,” Starr says. “Melodically, I knew that I wanted to do something that pushed the boundaries. I wanted to lean into that culture of black music that’s built in skill and improvisation. That’s what I wanted to do, something bold.” Being bold is not something Starr has an issue with. He has a confident view of both his own abilities and the potential of South Carolina’s growing hip-hop music community. “I believe in the power of music,” he says. “But without a group of people hearing my music, telling me, ‘This is good, you should do more of this,’ without that support system, there would be no Benny Starr. People don’t understand how hard it is to make it in this business, especially in South Carolina, but I believe in the fact that a lot of South Carolinians love art, and I KNOW we love hip-hop.”

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // AUGUST 23

At a time of public disharmony, “The Band’s Visit” may be just what audiences have been craving. The critically acclaimed show — about how music can bring us together — opens the Peace Center’s 2019-20 Broadway Series on Tuesday, with eight performances through Sunday. The musical won a whopping 10 Tony Awards in 2018, including Best Musical. It also won the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. The story centers on a small Egyptian police band that, due to a misunderstanding, winds up in a rural Israeli town. The Egyptians and Israelis are separated by language and a history of strife. They eye each other warily at first. “These two cultures have been at war for years, but the wonder of this show is that it doesn’t focus on that,” said Chilina Kennedy, who plays the central role of the cafe owner Dina. “The musical is really about kindness and how we can learn from each other,” she said. “It’s about finding common ground.” The universal language of music helps to ease the tension. Under a desert sky, the band brings the town to life. “They find that although they’re from different countries and have the barrier of language, they have so much in common,” said Sasson Gabay, who plays band leader Tewfiq. David Yazbek’s score fuses musical theater with jazz and traditional Middle Eastern music. Kennedy and Gabay are both acclaimed Broadway stars. Kennedy spent more than two years (and a thousand performances) playing Carole King in the long-running “Beautiful – The Carole King Musical” on Broadway. Gabay, a prominent Israeli actor, starred in the 2007 film on which the musical is based and was featured as Tewfiq in the Broadway production. Ben Brantley of The New York Times called the show “one of the most ravishing musicals you will ever be seduced by.”

AN INTIMATE STORY

But the musical is not your typical Broadway dazzler. “The Band’s Visit” offers a heartfelt, intimate story, with a cast of a little more than a dozen and music provided by the actors. “It’s such a different kind of show,” Kennedy said, speaking by phone during a recent tour stop in Washington, D.C. “It’s sophisticated and subtle and requires people to lean in, and the audience is really doing that. They’re behind us the whole way and really enjoying it.” The musical has been praised for its authentic and compelling portrait of Middle Eastern characters. Dina is a romantic soul caught in a provincial town. Tewfiq’s quiet strength and formal manner, meanwhile, hide a painful past that’s slowly revealed. “It breaks your heart and opens it up again,” Kennedy said.

‘KIND OF A MIRACLE’

But Gabay was skeptical when he first heard that Yazbek and playwright Itamar Moses were writing a Broadway musical based on the 2007 film. “It was a very delicate and gentle film and I didn’t know how that would work on Broadway,” Gabay said. “It’s kind of a miracle because it’s a small story about ordinary people with ordinary problems but it resonates with so many feelings and emotions.” Gabay, however, was completely won over by the adaptation and jumped at the chance to play Tewfiq. “After more than 10 years, I find myself doing the role on Broadway and then touring the country,” Gabay said. “I’m pleased to see how well people are connecting to the show,” he added. “This is not a show you forget. I think audiences will leave with something in their heart to carry with them for a long time.” Gabay has another reason to love the show. His adult son Adam is also featured in this national tour.

Offers affordable, quality concerts in Greenville n story by MELODY CUENCA | photos PROVIDED

Now in its 21st season, the Temple of Israel brings six variety concerts to Greenville that won’t break the bank. The Music on Sunday concert series features musical varieties such as Afro-Cuban jazz, chamber music, Latin American rhythms, traditional klezmer tunes, and Broadway hits. For $85, concertgoers will enjoy all six concerts and post-show complimentary wine-andcheese receptions to meet the musicians. Or, guests may purchase $20 individual concert tickets. The season pass, called a “flex” ticket, may be used for any combination of six single admissions. “We think we’ve got a great season going forward again with lots of variety and very inexpensive,” longtime music committee member Jack Cohan says. “There’s not anything else like this.” Thanks to a Metropolitan Arts Council grant, the Music on Sunday series expanded from the usual five concerts to six this year. All concerts are held at the Temple of Israel at 3 p.m. on select Sundays from September 2019 to March 2020.

THE 2019-2020 SEASON LINEUP: SALSA SHARK September 15, 2019 The Cuban-Afro-Caribbean quintet called Salsa Shark brings back unstoppable rhythm. Returning with Afro-Cuban jazz tunes, Salsa Shark will also play a variety of new numbers. “The music is really driven by the percussion and the piano,” vibraphonist/percussionist Jason Decristofaro says. “It’s also a very rhythmic style of music.” The members also include Warren Gaughan on piano, Kevin Kehrberg on bass, Ruben Garcia on congas, and Isaac Wells on timbales/ percussion.

JACK COHAN AND FRIENDS January 12, 2020 Along with two young artists, pianist Cohan performs a variety of songs to highlight the specialties of each musician. Soprano Brittany Hogan Alomar and clarinetist Benjamin Chen bring top-notch talent to the temple. The trio will close with Schubert’s “The Shepherd on the Rock,” which was made for a soprano, clarinet, and piano.

AMERICAN CHAMBER PLAYERS October 27, 2019

BANDANA KLEZMER February 16, 2020

The well-known American Chamber Players present chamber pieces by Gabriel Pierné, Max Raimi, Guillaume Lekeu, and more. The players consist of violinist Miles Hoffman, violinist Joanna Maurer, flutist Sara Stern, Bulgarian pianist Anna Stoycheva, and cellist Stephen Balderston. Saying the acoustics in the temple are phenomenal, Hoffman tells audiences to expect hearing lots of great music in a great venue.

Performing Old World Eastern European Jewish festive music, Bandana Klezmer plays tunes to reflect joyous and sorrowful times in Jewish life. The music includes hints of Jewish, Gypsy, and Romanian cultures in both minor and major keys. The ensemble consists of Meg Peterson on accordion and vocals, Naomi Dalglish on fiddle and vocals, Michael Hunt on percussion and tsimbl, Rob Levin on guitar, Andy John on cello and harmonica, and Marc Rudow on fiddle.

9 STRING THEORY November 10, 2019

“BROADWAY SWINGS” WITH WENDY JONES AND THE JASON DECRISTOFARO TRIO March 15, 2020

Born from the collaboration of Russian domra virtuoso Angelina Galashenkova and American guitarist John Huston, 9 String Theory transports audiences around the world. Visiting songs with Latin American rhythms, Russian Gypsy fire, Spanish flamenco sounds, and American tunes, the unique duo presents musical magic.

Honoring Rosemary Clooney in last year’s show, Wendy Jones returns to join Decristofaro, Kehrberg, and Rick Dillings for a musical journey back in time. “I’m taking some songs from Broadway and giving them jazz treatments,” Jones says. “It’s going to be a wonderful afternoon where people can just revisit a time where melodies were beautiful and lyrics elevated and almost always understood.”

RIDE-SHARE TIME FROM GB&D TO THE EIGHTH STATE BREWING CO.: 6 MINUTES APPROXIMATE COST: $7

Where we’re dining: Golden Brown & Delicious (GB&D)

DON't MISS

OUR LAST

HOME STAND OF 2019. AUG. 23 - 29

Like our show of choice this week, our dining suggestion has a little something for everyone, with global influences, while being just about as indie as a restaurant can be. Golden Brown & Delicious in the Village of West Greenville turned 3 years old on Aug. 16. Since opening, chef and co-owner Alex George has created a place of comfort with his cooking and inclusive work environment, making it a true Greenville-grown gem worth celebrating. It’s also a perfect pre-show date night stop when you want leveled up cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Before GB&D moves to its new home in The Commons food hall and the Pendleton Street location becomes something new (George hasn’t yet disclosed the concept), don’t miss the chance to grab the famous GB&D burger in the OG spot. Here’s the catch with ordering recommendations — the entire menu changes daily. But, take it from a seasoned GB&D diner, there are some guidelines to follow (with approximate prices):

A SHOW n story by VINCENT HARRIS

We’re seeing: E.Z. Shakes, Julia Ruby & James Heaton, T.C. Costello

DINNER Surprise from the kitchen (~$8) George recently added this option to the menu. You order; the chef sends out a dish of his choosing. How fun is that. The GB&D Burger (~$14) Even if the burger isn’t on the dinner menu, you can ask for it. Ramen (~$14) House made broth, noodles, and a perfect egg makes it a GB&D mainstay. Fish (~$20) Sometimes it’s with fresh house made pasta, or over grits, or with a load of beautiful veggies. Order it.

DRINKS & DESSERT Wine (~$8-12) George and his FOH manager, Katie, have quirky and distinct tastes in wine. The menu reflects that. Ask for a by-the-glass recommendation instead of a bottle if you’ll be drinking at the show.

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // AUGUST 23

Dessert (~$6) Whatever the two options are for the evening, normally a chocolate and a fruit, they’ll be worth it.

E.Z. SHAKES & OTHERS SATURDAY, AUG 24 | 7:30PM EIGHTH STATE BREWING CO. FREE EIGHTHSTATEBREWING.COM

Perhaps it’s a cliché to say that a show has something for everyone, but this one at Eighth State Brewing Company certainly runs the gamut. Accordion maestro T.C. Costello kicks things off with a set of exuberant world-music. The best way to describe what he does is to call it some sort of delirious combo of sea chanteys, immigration ballads and ancient folklore, but none of that will matter once you seem him throw himself into a performance. Next up is a duo that combines two of the Upstate’s most exciting musicians. Julia Ruby is one of the most intense performers on the local scene, and any fan of passionate acoustic folk should give her a try. And when you combine her emotional style with the molten riffing of Contra Blues Band guitarist James Heaton, it makes for an explosive mix. They are two players who wouldn’t seem to have much common ground on the surface, but this pairing is electrifying. Columbia’s E.Z. Shakes closes out the evening, and if you enjoy gritty, atmospheric roots-rock with more than a little country twang mixed in, the kind of music that people like Sturgill Simpson or Jason Isbell or Steve Earle specialize in, Shakes (real name Zach Seibert) and his band are the group for you. In fact, the songs on his most recent release, the 2018 EP Eyes On Fire, are so catchy, well-crafted and genuine that it makes one wonder why they’re not selling out venues all over the country.

BOSSY BAKERS

Opening a brick-and-mortar location on Wade Hampton Boulevard n story by ARIEL TURNER | photos WILL CROOKS

Soon the black bars protecting the storefront glass on the former Frazor Electronics shop at 1540 Wade Hampton Blvd. Unit G will be removed and give way to a new, fresh look and bakery. Jeannie Hall, the original Bossy Baker, announced earlier this month she had found a brick-and-mortar location for her 4-year-old popup business and also a name change, adding an ‘s’ to make the new location, Bossy Bakers, reflective of her team of bakers. The first half of the name is a jab at a trait generally viewed as negative. “I think that women who are in charge are called things like ‘bossy,’” she says. “It’s seen as a negative. I want to turn that around.” When Bossy Bakers opens later this year in the same strip center as the Kava Konnection and a parking lot over from Bridge City Coffee, Hall plans to serve breakfast, lunch, and grab ‘n’ go dinners. The location is close enough to downtown to be a commuter stop and has parking without the higher lease rates of Main Street, she says. The space will include an open kitchen with bar surrounding it and typical cafe seating along with large community tables where Hall plans to teach baking classes. The aesthetic will be simple and modern, designed by her graphic designer husband, Justin. Much of the menu will be various baked goods — pies, cupcakes, and breads of all kinds — that she’s sold at various Upstate farmers markets and served at special events, such as the 2018 Indie Craft Parade. But in addition, she plans to serve soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and many vegetarian items using the best local ingredients she can find. To-go dinners will include savory items like pot pies. “Honestly I like to bake almost anything, but I really like focusing on making the ingredients really good and natural,” Hall says. “I really like local ingredients.” Her menu will include gluten-free and vegan options. “I like experimenting with vegan and gluten-free,” she says. “My passion with that is making those things out of actual good things.” She made a vegan, gluten-free key lime pie last year for the farmers market using an avocado base, and it was a hit. Those items will be prepared on separate surfaces from the regular items to limit cross-contamination for customers with severe allergies. “Because if I’m going to do something, I want to do it the right way,” she says. The allergen-free items won’t be the majority, though. “I really do love butter, and I like wheat flour,” she says. “So I’m going to still be using those things.” A former middle school teacher at Sevier Middle and mother of two young children, Hall comes from a family of bakers. Her dad is the more experimental one, while her mom follows the recipe. She lands somewhere in the middle, she says. “I did learn how to make naturally leavened bread, like sourdough,” she says about her latest successful experiment. “But a lot of people

Honestly I like to bake almost anything, but I really like focusing on making the ingredients really good and natural. I really like local ingredients.” – JEANNIE HALL, the original Bossy Baker when they say sourdough, it’s like they throw some really fermented starter and a bunch of commercial yeast in there. And it took me a really long time, but I’m able to rise my bread with my starter, and I’m working on doing that for gluten-free bread, too.” She points to the health benefits of a natural fermentation process as opposed to a forced one with more processed ingredients. Her choice to create a vegetarian-friendly menu also has to do with making health-conscious choices, explaining she prefers local farm produce and animal products because they are more nutritious. They’re also more expensive, so Hall says going with a vegetable-heavy menu like she does at home for her family will keep costs down. Rather than duplicate what her neighboring businesses do, Bossy Bakers won’t have a coffee program other than mini French presses, but she will make sodas and other drinks in-house. The environment will be welcoming to all and family friendly. “I feel like I’ll be able to offer what I want to see in a place,” she says. AUGUST 23 // GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM

Ella cannot say no. As a baby, she received a magical ‘gift’ from her fairy godmother that forces her to obey everyone – all the time. This gift, which Ella keeps secret from those around her, ultimately becomes a dangerous vulnerability. As she grows, Ella tires of the inability to follow her own will and sets out on a quest to rid herself of this ‘gift’. Along the way, her bravery, intelligence and selflessness helps her realize that she alone has the power to set herself free.

NETFLIX RECOMMENDATIONS

OZARK | 2 SEASONS | 20 EPISODES | 1 HOUR EACH | AN ORIGINAL NETFLIX SERIES

A financial adviser drags his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks, where he must launder $500 million in five years to appease a drug boss. Starring: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney and Sofia Hublitz

NOTES: I watched this series and really enjoyed it, it does start off a little dark, but it gets better as the plot builds. Not a family friendly series - definitely for mature audiences.

STRANGER THINGS | 3 SEASONS | 25 EPISODES | 1 HOUR EACH | AN ORIGINAL NETFLIX SERIES When a young boy vanishes, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one strange little girl.

NOTES: I also watched this series and really enjoyed it, I thought it would be scary, but it is more of a drama than scary. Not a family friendly series - definitely for mature audiences.
