It’s time to talk about depression and anxiety By Mimi Wyche
It still feels risky to share that for over 40 years I’ve experienced bouts of crippling depression and anxiety. I’ve sought numerous avenues to recovery, including psychotherapy, holistic medicine, macrobiotics, an array of psychotropic drugs, and off-label FDA trials. Each time I’d think, “This one will work! This is the regimen to forever turn the tide!” But relief was followed by relapse, and I’d find myself retreating farther from the swirl of normal life, feeling more deeply shamed by the stigma attached to these mental conditions. I withdrew into silence. Sadly, my story is not unusual. Depression and anxiety continue to rise in the United States today, along with the num-

ber of anti-anxiety and anti-depression pharmaceuticals being prescribed. Consider how feelings of despair and helplessness have fueled the opioid crisis. Yet many still remain silent. I’ve often been approached by acquaintances that confess that they are struggling and want to talk about it – if I swear to tell no one. Thirty years ago, people who reached out for support were often rebuffed with responses like, “Count your blessings!” or “Quit worrying so much!” The subtext was clear: “Don’t feel the way you feel, and don’t talk about it!” Isn’t this often still the case? Today, despite advances in scientific research, books, movies, and television specials – all addressing the prevalence

and potentially devastating effects of depression and anxiety – these conditions still carry a stigma. Mental illness is exactly that: a biological illness. So why do so many continue to consider it a character flaw? The shame of not being “fine” – the fear of being blamed and labeled as lazy, immature, or “broken” – stifles the desire to open up about the problem. People in acute emotional pain will often flat-out deny it if asked. Because they are still able to function at work or in social environments, they’ll convince themselves nothing is wrong. But denial can lead to treacherous waters. Unaddressed depression and anxiety can lead to emotional collapse, even suicide. In 2016, 742 South Carolinians died by suicide. Seven hundred and forty-two human beings. How many of those deaths were preventable? Most of them, I think. For the past several years, I’ve maintained a remission and led a full, active life. Therapy, meditation, a healthy lifestyle, medications, and even hospitalization have all been critical tools in my recovery. I can tell you from my own experience that talking is where recovery begins. And though the act of talking may seem insignificant, it is powerful. It also requires courage from both parties. At times I was brave enough to initiate the conversation, but there were just as many times when I wasn’t. On those occasions, a friend or loved one had the insight and grace to insist that we talk about how I was feeling and then just listened. Here’s the thing: Letting someone talk about his or her feelings and really hearing them has a profound healing effect. Often loved ones hesitate because they feel they have no skills to help out, or fear they’ll be expected to become a therapist.
But all you have to do is simply listen. You can interject short phrases that show you’re following what’s being said. Most importantly, listen actively. Resist the urge to judge, scold, advise, or “fix.” All of these imply that you have the answer, but in reality, it isn’t necessary to fix anything, only to exhibit the compassion that allows the other person to share openly. Listening and acknowledging another’s feelings without judging is real validation, and the effect can be astonishing. I encourage us to honestly ask ourselves, “Have I unintentionally discouraged a friend or loved one from opening up about their depression or anxiety? Do I have the courage to initiate that conversation?” And I encourage anyone in the throes of depression, anxiety, or other emotional distress, to ask themselves, “Can I push past whatever stigma I fear and tell one person that I’m feeling scared, hopeless, or overwhelmed?” For me, talking has been a lifesaver – literally. It’s something each of us is capable of. Talk about it.

OPINION Views from your community
Are Greenville County’s growth policies adequate? By H. G. “Butch” Kirven Jr.
Increasingly, people are coming to Greenville County Council to express their frustration with the effects of largescale suburban developments on local roads, landscapes, utilities, and services. Citizens feel overwhelmed by the volume of development and by the massive scale of cutting and grading being done. People are concerned about how all this is changing their lives. Since 2010, Greenville County’s population increased by about 50,000 people. That’s another Simpsonville, Mauldin, and Travelers Rest put together. High-density residential areas are essential to meet the needs of our growing population, but they should be located where the roads can handle higher traffic volumes, utilities already exist, and sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and mixed-property uses are encouraged. Bringing infrastructure to locations where high-density developments make sense is more cost effective than the current pattern of simply building new subdivisions in the outlying areas. That pattern brings sprawl. Sprawl is caused by redundant developments expanded over areas where infrastructure is inadequate and where semi-rural and low-density neighborhoods are established. It consumes land faster and less efficiently than compact, mixed-use developments situated where adequate infrastructure and services are available. Subdivisions tend to become obsolete faster as newer developments come on line farther out. Sprawl is also more expensive for taxpayers due to the higher costs of extending utilities, roads, and services over a large area. It is detrimental to achieving cohesive and complete communities that retain their desirability generation after generation. How best can we plan for continued population growth in Greenville County? What neighborhood characteristics do people value most and want to see in new subdivisions? Is it worthwhile to help some areas retain their rural characteristics? How can we encourage a range of housing types, including affordable housing? Is it good public policy to promote
a balance of development types and land uses so that people may choose to live, work, shop, learn, and recreate more conveniently and efficiently? The county has a responsibility to help shape land-development policies attuned to the citizens’ interests and preferences. It is also in the public interest to encourage a balance of development types, because commercial and other nonresidential property taxes subsidize services provided for owner-occupied residences. Greenville County’s comprehensive plan, Imagine Greenville County, is in its eighth year. It is effectively outdated. A few area plans have been approved for certain districts and sections that reflect citizens’ preferences and interests in those areas. Area plans are a useful, but limited, tool that would be more effective when aligned with a full array of land-use policies including zoning, drainage, subdivision and land development regulations, codes, etc. Such a policy alignment has not been done in the past. It should be done going forward. Over the next two years, a new comprehensive plan will be created with public participation to focus on a vision for Greenville County out to 2030. Two years is too long to wait. If the goal is to match the public’s concerns with practical solutions to guide the development industry in meeting the demand for new housing, interim steps are needed. It may be time for a temporary moratorium on residential rezoning and new subdivision approvals to allow for immediately needed measures to be considered and adopted. The current situation is not satisfactory for citizens or builders. Much more can be done to ensure growth meets demand in ways that preserve and promote the great quality of life enjoyed here – now and into the future. That’s in everyone’s interest. H. G. “Butch” Kirven Jr. represents Greenville County Council, District 27. He is also the council chair.

How a stormwater ordinance is preventing Spero’s Pete’s Original Too from being rebuilt WORDS BY CINDY LANDRUM
Spero’s Pete’s Original Too was damaged by an explosion following a flash flood and subsequently demolished.
Spero John Conits wants to rebuild Spero’s Pete’s Original Too, but he can’t. The restaurant, located at the corner of East North Street and Stone Avenue, was severely damaged by an explosion that followed a 2014 flash flood. It was subsequently demolished, and the spot has remained vacant since. Recently, Conits sought a building permit to resurrect his restaurant, but on Sept. 14 the City of Greenville’s Board of Zoning Appeals upheld a previous decision to deny him a permit because of the city’s stormwater ordinance. After the 2014 flood, the Federal Emergency Management Agency changed the designation of Conits’ property, and those surrounding it, from a floodplain to floodway. And under the city’s stormwater ordinance, construction is prohibited within a floodway. The ordinance also prohibits reconstruction of a damaged building if the damage equals greater than 50 percent of the building’s market value. While Conits contemplates his next step, the city and county are continuing to try to decrease the chances of somebody else being in Conits’ shoes – having to rebuild their lives after their homes or businesses are destroyed by a flood.
The storm that flooded the Stone Avenue and East North Street area parked over Greenville and dumped up to six inches of rain in just a few hours, causing flash floods that destroyed businesses, damaged homes, shut down part of Interstate 85 for hours, and caused the death of two people who were swept away by floodwaters. But flooding is not limited to that area of the county. In 1995, Hurricane Jerry, which by then had been downgraded to a tropical storm, drenched Greenville County with 18.9 inches of rain in 36 hours. The Brushy Creek and Gilder Creek area, which was prone to flooding during a normal heavy rain, was hit hard. Several homes in the Del Norte and Eastgate subdivisions flooded. Years later, Tropical Storm Cindy resulted in some Del Norte residents being rescued by boat after rain turned their homes and surrounding yards into islands. Del Norte and other subdivisions throughout the county were built in floodplains before tighter government regulations restricted or outlawed them outright. At one time, dredging nearby Brushy Creek was pro-
posed. Property owners in the area nixed that. The county considered floodwalls, elevating homes, and stream bank stabilizations, said Paula Gucker, the county’s public works department director, in a Federal Emergency Response Agency article on flood mitigation best practices. Some houses were so far in the floodway that the county wouldn’t be able to elevate them high enough to get them out of the water. In 2007, a property acquisition program was started in which the county would buy the properties most prone to flooding. To date, the county has purchased 179 properties totaling 92 acres. Once the homes and other structures were removed, the

properties were allowed to return to their natural state, said Greenville County spokesman Bob Mihalic. “At the beginning, the properties most prone to flood damage were put on a priority list,” Mihalic said. “We’ve seen dramatic improvement.” The benefits are twofold — the county gains green space, and the land is returned to the floodplain. Since the program started, the county purchases on average 10 properties a year and there’s a waiting list, Mihalic said.
Since 2005, the city has spent more than $15 million on stormwater projects in flood-prone areas of the city: the Henderson basin in the Parkins Mill area, Chick Springs, White Oaks, Broad Street, and near McAlister Square. In some areas, such as a location up from Bennett Street, flood elevations were reduced by 5 feet and quite a few houses were removed from the floodway, said Dwayne Cooper, the city’s engineering services manager. The city has also purchased one property on Karen Drive, which had repetitive flooding losses. Currently, the city is working with a consultant to formulate a new stormwater plan, dubbed “Stormwater 2.0.” As a part of Stormwater 2.0, the city is modeling Richland Creek, which runs behind Conits’ property, and other parts of the city to determine how stormwater flows, and at what volume, into the city’s streams and rivers. Development has affected flooding because there isn’t as much ground for the water to seep into. Stormwater 2.0 will look at regional detention, as well as focus on water quality, Cooper said. Stream bank erosion reduction will also be a priority. “We’re trying to slow the water down,” he said.
Spero’s Pete’s Original Too was in compliance with regulations from the time it was built to the time of the 2014 flood, and the restaurant was destroyed through no fault of Conits, said his attorney Pat Paschal. Paschal said not being able to rebuild amounts to the regulatory taking of Conits’ property without compensation. Conits said in an email that with the BZA’s rejection of his appeal, he would go to Plan B. When asked if that meant going to court, he said it was too early to say, but a lawsuit is highly possible.

Volunteers come together to clean the Reedy River More than 100 volunteers armed with trash bags, boots, and gloves worked last Saturday morning to clean parts of the Reedy River, from the city line near Mauldin to Cleveland Park and along the banks near Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery. The cleanup effort was organized by Friends of the Reedy River, a Greenvillebased nonprofit dedicated to improving and protecting the waterway’s health. The group, which was established in 1993, holds two cleanup events annually. “The Reedy River contributes to the economic and social vitality of our city,” said Patricia Carson, executive director of Friends of the Reedy River. “Participating in a river cleanup is one way that citizens can do their part for the river we all love.” She said volunteers removed trash from 9 miles of waterways along the Reedy. One group worked behind the Caine Halter Family YMCA near downtown Greenville to remove trash and tree limbs that were impeding the river’s flow. Another group removed trash from Richland Creek, a tributary of the Reedy located in Cleveland
Park, to prepare the surrounding area for a restoration project later this month. While the exact amount of trash is still being tallied, Carson estimated several thousand pounds were cleared out of area streams. About 170 volunteers removed 3,500 pounds of trash from the river last year, according to Carson. Carson said her group’s cleanup efforts not only improve the Reedy’s water quality but also offer people a chance to get personally involved in the cleanliness of their environment. “The Reedy is an important resource to our community, but many people aren’t aware of its vulnerability to stormwater runoff and other threats,” she said. “I actually think cleanups can inspire people to think about the river more often in their daily lives and consider what role they play in keeping it healthy as the region continues to grow.” — Andrew Moore POLICE

Police Chief Ken Miller said officers need three items to be safe — a radio, a gun, and a light. The problem is officers only have two hands. The newest fundraising campaign by the Greenville Police Foundation aims to help by equipping officers with lights that attach to their firearms. The foundation, launched last summer, is a nonprofit organization formed to provide the police department with grants to buy equipment, provide specialized training, and fund employee recognition programs that aren’t covered under the department’s budget. Charlotte, N.C., and Greensboro, N.C., both cities where Miller worked before coming to Greenville, have police foundations. The foundation wants to raise $40,000 to equip 160 officers with the lighting systems and holsters. It costs $250 to equip one officer. “High-risk, nighttime situations include many things happening at once – commands, covering your suspect, situational awareness, radio communication, handcuffs, and the lack of illumination,” Miller said. “There’s no time for overreaction or mistakes.” The lights will allow officers to illuminate
and secure their surroundings while still being able to communicate effectively, he said. Donors to the foundation may specify whether they want their contributions to fund a specific project, such as the attachable lights, or be used by the foundation to provide grants to the Greenville Police Department. Individual, business, and corporate donations made to the foundation are tax-deductible. The foundation allows the department to accelerate the implementation of safetybased initiatives. Without the foundation, it could take the department several years to purchase new safety equipment or implement new training programs. The foundation’s initial project funded officer training in crowd-control management. That initiative came after a peaceful rally in downtown Greenville in July 2016 turned contentious when protestors threatened to shut down Interstate 385. — Cindy Landrum ART

NEWS Main Street, was a casualty of the ongoing Camperdown development on the site of the now-demolished Greenville News building. But the city will use $30,000 from the developer, Centennial American Properties, to pay for another brick sculpture by Brad Spencer, the artist who created “The Path of Becoming,” to be installed at an undetermined property. City Council has given final approval to the decommissioning of “The Path of Becoming,” which actually consisted of three sculptures – “Emerge,” “Connect,” and “Transcend” – and a path of paver bricks connecting them. The sculpture, which was located in front of where Liz Daly Designs had been located on South Main Street, could not be moved because it was specifically created for that site and the foundation was incorporated into the sidewalk. “The Path of Becoming” was installed in 2009. Sean Scoopmire, chairman of the city’s Arts in Public Places Commission, said a new site hasn’t been chosen for the new piece, which, according to the ordinance approved by City Council, will be a facsimile of the original piece. —Cindy Landrum

United Way announces $17M fundraising goal for Greenville County United Way of Greenville County hopes to raise $17 million during its 2017 campaign to support various nonprofits and their community programs, officials recently announced. “We’re frequently recognized as one of the best places to live in America. But our goal during this campaign season is to make sure that is true for all of our neighbors, because we know too well that not every citizen in our community has access to the same Greenville,” said Kurt Rozelsky, campaign
chairman and partner with Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP. The fundraising goal was announced last week during the organization’s annual kickoff event at the TD Convention Center. The amount is the same as last year’s goal, which has eluded the organization for the past three years. The total raised in 2014 was $16.6 million. In 2015, the campaign raised $16.7 million – the highest ever in the organization’s history, as well as the largest amount raised by a United Way organization in South Carolina. It then raised $16.5 million last year. Rozelsky said 33 pacesetter companies, including United Way and its partner agencies, have already turned in more than $3.9 million in employee pledges, or 22 percent of the overall campaign goal. Four of those companies – Fluor Corporation, Greenville Health System, Michelin North America, and Greenville County Schools – have raised nearly $2.3 million combined. The campaign will conclude on Oct. 31, with a final report scheduled for Nov. 19. Last year, the initiative helped more than 100,000 people in key areas such as life essentials, school readiness, high school graduation, and financial stability, according to the United Way. —Andrew Moore

Back Together With Sylvia House, Mandy Learo hopes to reduce the number of relapses WORDS BY ANDREW MOORE | PHOTO BY WILL CROOKS
09.22.2017 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 17
Greenville’s Mandy Learo spent more than 10 years battling drug addiction and alcoholism. Now, four years after getting clean and sober, she is on a mission to help others experience a life free of substance abuse. Learo, a yoga instructor, plans to open a transitional living facility for women who are in the early stages of recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism. “The first months of sobriety are the most difficult for recovering drug addicts and alcoholics,” Learo said. “Sylvia House will provide a temporary living space and structured program that helps addicted women not only maintain their sobriety but gradually integrate back into society once they’ve completed detox treatment.” Sylvia House will focus on women, because they face more challenges during the early stages of recovery, according to Learo. Some studies, for instance, show women actually tend to crave drugs more often than men and relapse at higher rates after treatment. Learo said her house will be more effective in combating addiction than sober living homes and other recovery facilities, because Sylvia House will offer longer periods of treatment and a wide variety of services, including nutritional, emotional, and therapeutic support. “Some studies show longer periods of support and treatment increase the chances of long-term sobriety,” Learo said. “But many sober living homes and halfway houses provide nothing more than a temporary bed, weekly drug test, and transportation to AA and NA meetings. I think that lack of continued support in these facilities is why we’re seeing high relapse rates.” Learo is familiar with the struggle to find an adequate recovery program. In 2009, after completing a detox treatment for heroin addiction, Learo relocated to a sober living home in South Florida but relapsed after 30 days. She then lived in five more halfway houses before 2010. While she eventually kicked her addiction to heroin, Learo became an alcoholic and spent years in treatment centers and even a psychiatric floor. In 2013, she entered a treatment center for a Vicodin detox and spent a year in 12-step meetings to get sober. Since then, Learo has watched drug overdoses continue to ravage the United States, as opioids push the death count higher. Drug overdoses killed 64,000 people in the United States last year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s an increase of more than 22 percent compared with the 52,404 drug deaths recorded in 2015. Opioid abuse has also been on the rise nationwide. More than 29,000 people died from opioid overdoses last year. Comparatively, nearly 34,000 died in car crashes. In South Carolina, Greenville County is the epicenter of opioid-related deaths. In 2015, 71 people died from opioid overdoses, rivaling the number of lives lost in wrecks. The year before, 65 people in Greenville County died from opioid overdoses — nearly twice the number that died in Charleston, Lexington, or Richland counties. But despite the rapid growth of overdose deaths, the treatment industry remains highly unregulated and saturated with corrupt or illegitimate facilities, according to Learo.
COMMUNITY “As our county and our region battle an unprecedented opioid problem, the options for long-term support are not meeting the need,” she said. “Sylvia House aims to help fill that need.” Learo said a key goal is to help recovering addicts learn self-discipline and self-care. She added that many people who have suffered from addiction don’t have the skills or coping mechanisms to achieve full independence when they complete treatment. For example, recovering addicts usually have trouble with everyday tasks such as eating breakfast or waking up with an alarm, according to Learo. While these tasks seem simple, recovering addicts have to relearn the basics of practical functioning.
“Some studies show longer periods of support and treatment increase the chances of long-term sobriety. But many sober living homes and halfway houses provide nothing more than a temporary bed, weekly drug test, and transportation to AA and NA meetings.” “Addicts usually get out of treatment with the capabilities of a teenager,” Learo said. “It’s our job to get them back on their feet.” Learo is also working with a registered dietitian to prepare a nutrition program that helps residents adopt healthier diets and regular fitness routines. When using drugs or alcohol, addicts can experience suppressed appetites, forget to eat while under the influence, and choose substance abuse over their diets, according to Learo. Drugs and alcohol also prevent the body from properly absorbing nutrients, which can oftentimes lead to malnourishment. “We’re going to provide all meals and a nutrientdense diet to heal the long-term effects of addiction,” said Learo. “We’re also going to provide in-house yoga and fitness classes to help our residents enjoy the benefits of exercise.” Sylvia House will also work with residents to address underlying psychological barriers to recovery. Learo said psychological issues, such as anxiety and depression, can emerge when drugs and alcohol are no longer available to cover them up. And when those underlying issues go untreated and unchecked, they can lead to relapse.
Learo has recruited a clinical psychologist to hold inhouse therapy sessions twice a week for both individuals and groups. Sylvia House will also provide access to 12-step programs and work with residents to develop a spiritual practice, according to Learo. “I think spirituality is an important component to recovery, but our program won’t focus on a particular religion. It’s not our job to tell people what to think or feel,” Learo said. “I believe someone who’s not comfortable in a church service may find it more enjoyable to be in nature and connect with a higher power there instead.” Sylvia House will accommodate at least 10 women at a time, according to Learo. Women who enroll at the facility will be able to stay there for up to nine months. Learo said the house will be wired with cameras for monitoring, and residents will have house rules, which they’ll agree to by signing a contract. If a resident does relapse and chooses to use drugs or alcohol, they will be asked to leave the facility. “It is of paramount importance to protect the community in a sober living environment and to ensure to the best of our ability a drug- and alcohol-free zone. We will have a zero-tolerance policy for relapse,” Learo said. “A woman can return to Sylvia House after a coolingoff period during which time she could complete another detox if needed or in some other way show recommitment to recovery. This would have to be determined on a case-by-case basis,” she added. For funding, Learo has launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to raise $60,000. The funds will be used to acquire a rental house as well as pay for staff salaries, utilities, furniture, and other essentials. But the campaign, which ends in October, has only raised $13,000 to date. “I’d like for the house to be community supported,” Learo said. “But I’m more than prepared to seek out startup capital from a socially conscious investor or take out a loan from the bank if I don’t meet my funding goal.” Learo plans to search for a physical location in Greenville once the campaign ends. The house is expected to open by summer 2018, according to Learo. But it will not be a nonprofit. Instead, Learo plans to structure the business as a social venture. “There are numerous nonprofits in Greenville that focus on supporting people in recovery,” she said. “I don’t want to compete against them for government grants or resources. Sylvia House will rely on monthly resident fees.” Learo said rates aren’t yet finalized, but residents can expect to pay at least $2,000 a month for the facility’s services, which include transportation and career counseling. The profits will be used to improve the facility and offer additional services, according to Learo. Sylvia House will also use a portion of its profits to award a yearly scholarship to one resident and to aid other Greenville organizations that are helping addicts in early recovery. “For me, this is not about money, but about providing a service in the Greenville area that is deeply needed,” Learo said.

Hawaii’s favorite raw fish treat comes to Greenville
Chances are, if you know the difference between ceviche and crudo or tartare and carpaccio, you didn’t learn that at the local meat ‘n’ three. Raw proteins – whether it’s ceviche crudo, tartare, or carpaccio – are often relegated to the fine-dining category in our part of the world for a variety of reasons. For starters, if you want to serve it raw, you have to seek out higher-quality ingredients, which mean a higher price. Another is simply a matter of exposure: Raw animal proteins are not a regular part of the average Southern diet. Still, the times, they are a’changing. Today, there’s one raw treat that’s currently making it big on the casual dining scene – poke. Similar in pronunciation to “okay,” poke is a Hawaiian favorite featuring cubes of raw ahi tuna, salmon, or octopus placed on sushi rice and topped with soy sauce,
sesame oil, chilies, seaweed, and, occasionally, vegetables. Think of it as deconstructed sushi in a bowl. And what started out as a simple snack for fishermen – who has better access to fresh seafood, after all? – has become one of the hottest dishes across the nation. Currently, poke is a regular menu item at a handful of area restaurants – Happy + Hale, Takosushi, and Bonefish Grill, for instance – and part of a rotating menu at Golden Brown & Delicious and The Anchorage. Spartanburg landed its own poke-focused joint, Pokenori, a few months back, but Greenville is still lacking in that area. But not for long. Greenville’s first all-poke restaurant, Poke Bros., will open at 3935 Pelham Road in about a month, says Braden McGlone, digital marketing manager with Signal Interactive Inc., who handles communications
for the Columbus, Ohio-based chain. Poke Bros. currently has two locations in the Columbus area, as well as two in the Columbia, S.C., area. The chain was founded in 2015 by T.J. Wellman, Scott McCarthy, and Xuegong Chen, all of whom had been involved in the seafood industry for years and had previously opened Asian bistros in Ohio. They discovered poke during a trip to California, and with their industry connections, it wasn’t long before they launched Poke Bros., bringing in fresh fish every day to the Midwest. “There isn’t a whole lot of seafood here,” McGlone says about the Columbus area. Poke Bros. creates its own sauces and marinades that range from mild to spicy, and all of its bowls are customizable. There’s even tofu and chicken options. “You always have that one friend or family member who won’t do seafood,” McGlone says, explaining that

the founders are tuned in to customer feedback. The proteins are tuna, salmon, octopus, and grilled shrimp, while additional toppings include jalapeños, edamame, cucumber, avocado, seaweed, green onion, and masago (bright orange roe). In the meantime, however, if you’re new to poke and want to give it a shot before the new store opens, there are some options. Located across the street from Falls Park, Happy + Hale offers an ahi poke bowl ($10.95) with raw ahi, avocado, sticky rice, sliced scallion, tuxedo sesame, ginger wasabi, and citrus ponzu dressings. As with most H+H menu items, the bowl can be customized with less rice for the carb conscious, additional mixed greens, and extra sauce. You can even substitute tofu for the tuna. Takosushi, 34 S. Main St., has an ahi poke ($11) appetizer. It’s served on a plate with red onions, scallions, sesame oil, soy sauce, salt, and pepper over rice with strings of rutabaga and beet as a salad. For a locally owned option, keep a social media eye on GB&D and The Anchorage. You never know when poke may show up on the rotation, but both are worth a last-minute change of dinner plans.

TRUE TO LIFE An exploration of gentrification in ‘Clybourne Park’ hits close to home in Greenville EMILY PIETRAS | ASSOCIATE EDITOR
out rehearsals – is what the concept of progress means to a community. “It’s a very personal thing for people,” he says. “Not just for the people that are possibly being displaced from their homes they’ve been in forever or seeing their neighborhoods change in a way they disagree with, but even for someone who reads the paper and says, ‘Man, why are they complaining? These construction companies and developers are doing something good.’ So it’s full of blind spots.” Briggs hopes the production will help “further complicate” some of the tough questions the Greenville community faces today. “I don’t think it’s necessarily our job as artists to provide easy answers to these complex questions. I think it’s our job to make them human and to sort of… create an opportunity to put a human face to perhaps the other side of the argument you haven’t considered,” he says. “And I hope that sort of leads us to take a look at our own motivations, our own personal connections to the issues, and what we might be bringing to the table.”
Greenville’s unprecedented growth has sparked debate regarding affordable housing and gentrification, and the Warehouse Theatre is preparing to tackle the latter issue head-on in its production of Bruce Norris’ “Clybourne Park.” The play, written as a spinoff to Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 drama “A Raisin in the Sun,” is set before and after the events of Hansberry’s work. Act I takes place in 1959, when a white couple is preparing to sell their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. But during a time of racial strife, not everyone approves of the impending sale. Circumstances are reversed in Act II, set in 2009, when a white couple wants to purchase the same home, now located in a predominately black neighborhood on the verge of gentrification. The couple’s plan to demolish and rebuild the property leads to tension-filled encounters with members of the neighborhood’s housing board. For director Jay Briggs, one of the highlights of his involvement in the production has been that “Clybourne Park” is a work that “feels relevant” to Greenville right now. “It makes coming to work every day feel like it really means something,” he says. But bringing Norris’ script to the stage hasn’t come without its challenges. “Anytime you’re going to deal with a topic or subject matter that has the potential to be very personal, as well as being very topical, that can potentially bring some things into the rehearsal room that can be challenging to deal with. And I think we’ve been doing a nice job of setting the right tone as a group,” Briggs says. That “Clybourne Park” is also a comedy dealing with hot-button issues adds another layer of complexity. Malikah McHerrin-Cobb, who plays Francine, a housekeeper, in Act I, and Lena, a member of the housing board, in Act II, says the play’s humor can help inspire further dialogue outside of the theater. “We make light of the subject because it is a truth, and comedy is another tactic to get underneath the things that we are saying,” she says. “I think audiences will be able to take away an honesty about what is happening in real life instead of masking these feelings and pretending like everything is OK.”

Brock Coontz, who plays Karl, a neighbor who resents that the house is being sold to a black family, in Act I, and Steve, the husband who wants to buy the house, in Act II, says he hopes “Clybourne Park” will lead the audience to reflect on their own viewpoints. “I think it’d be a huge success if people were to leave the show being able to pull back the veil on their own values and perceptions and do a little personal assessment of, ‘Okay, do I have blind spots, growing up where I grew up, living where I live? Have I really recognized what my intentions are, opinions are?’” he says. “Because I don’t doubt that someone is going to sit there and recognize the fact that they’ve said some of these lines before.” “People come in with their opinions and defensiveness – because of the language, because of the topic – but I think seeing yourself in each of these characters or just noticing how you act behind closed doors
says a lot about how we can solve some of these problems,” McHerrin-Cobb adds. Coontz says that one of the chief questions “Clybourne Park” asks – and something the cast has grappled with through-

CROWD PLEASER GSO opens season with Beethoven tribute, return of soloist Dmitri Levkovich VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR
When Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel, conductor and artistic director of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, began planning the opening performance of the orchestra’s 2017-18 season, he knew he wanted to do something big. After all, this is the GSO’s 70th season, and a milestone like that deserves something powerful, passionate, and, above all else, crowd-pleasing. That’s what the Maestro needed, and there was only one name that came to mind: Ludwig Von Beethoven. “Beethoven was very unique in terms of his intelligence and power, and the many obstacles he overcame,” Tchivzhel says. “All his life he fought adversity, and he had a desire for freedom. I think that’s why his music is so beloved by everyone, and why he is still one of the most popular composers in the world. A person might be able to name two classical composers who were known by everyone; one of them would of course be Mozart, and the other would be Beethoven. Even those who haven’t heard his music know who he is.” So for the GSO’s season opener, which will take place in two performances this weekend, the program will be an all-Beethoven performance called, appropriately enough, “Beethoven The Great.” The show will feature three of the iconic composer’s greatest works: “The Egmont Overture” (which served as the theme for a play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe), the Piano Sonata No. 5, and the universally known Symphony No. 5.
“He had a rebellious spirit. Through his music, he was always trying to express heroism and the fight for freedom and justice.” In addition to Beethoven’s popularity and power, Tchivzhel says he has always been moved by the compassion and passion in the German composer’s work. “He had a rebellious spirit,” the maestro says. “Through his music, he was always trying to express heroism and the fight for freedom and justice. He was very concerned about humanity, and he was able to express his deepest feelings and passion through his music. That intensity and power is what makes him so special.” Symphony No. 5 is the obvious fan favorite of the program, which is probably why the GSO is saving it for the finale. But the other two choices were more personal for Tchivzhel for different reasons. “We chose the ‘Egmont Overture’ because the play is about the heroic sacrifice of a man [Count Egmont] who was condemned to death for struggling against oppression,” Tchivzhel says. “In fact, in the 20th century, this overture became the unofficial anthem of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.” “Then we go to another extremely famous piece, the Piano Concerto No. 5,” he continues. “It was Beethoven’s last piano concerto, which is especially well-known because of its great en-

ergy and spirit.” The Piano Concerto gained the nickname “Emperor” after Beethoven’s death because of its regal feel and extravagant length; it runs over 40 minutes. The daunting, demanding piece will feature soloist Dmitri Levkovich, who is making a return appearance after a well-received Rachmaninoff performance last year. “He’s technically an absolutely perfect player, and that allows him to interpret any type of music, because he can play anything, in any way he wants,” Tchivzhel says. “He’s not limited in his skills, and he has a very creative mind. And I would also say he’s a very romantic player. Beethoven had a very romantic style.” “Dmitry is quite brilliant,” Tchivzhel says. “He’s very young, but he’s very mature as a musician, so he’s up to the task of playing the ‘Emperor’ concerto with power and passion. He dazzled the audience last year, and many people asked for him to back.” Ultimately, Tchivzhel says that he thinks the program will both challenge and delight everyone involved. “I think it will be a great opening performance for the audience and the orchestra,” he says. “We like to make everybody happy on our opening night.”

CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
At first, Alison Bechdel’s “Fun Home” doesn’t exactly seem like ideal source material for a hit Broadway musical. The graphic memoir is an often-sober exploration of Bechdel’s identity as a lesbian and complicated relationship with her father, a closeted gay man who may have died by suicide. But, then again, a story about a butcher who kills people and bakes them into pies didn’t appear to be set up for success either, said Katie Shindle, a former Miss America who is playing the lead role in the national tour of “Fun Home,” the winner of the 2015 Tony Award for best musical. “It’s not what most people would think of as source material that would make good sense as a musical,” she said. “But with the care and craftsmanship of the creatives, ‘Fun Home’ is terrifically successful on the page as well as the stage.” While “Fun Home” is the first Broadway musical with a lesbian protagonist and the first show written exclusively by women — Jeanine Tesori wrote the music, while Lisa Kron handled the book and lyrics — to win a Tony for best musical, the show resonates with all audience members, Shindle said. “It’s about a family that seems perfect
from the outside but, on the inside, has a number of things they don’t talk about but should be talking about,” she said. And its timing is perfect, Shindle said. “It’s an important show,” she said. “We’re at a moment in our cultural history as Americans when we’re starting to question why individuals aren’t allowed to live their own identities. People should be able to be who they are.” It’s a message that is resonating in large cities such as New York and Dallas, the city in which the tour was in when Greenville Journal talked with Shindle last week. It has also been embraced by smaller cities as well. “When I was first cast in the show, I had friends asking me how well I thought this was going to tour,” Shindle said. “But the show sold out in Durham, [N.C.], which was our second stop.” She adds, “I think no matter the size of the city, there are always people interested in good theater. ‘Fun Home’ is a great show. It’s a piece of theater for people who love theater and who love what theater can do and what it can teach us.” Shindle played Sally Bowles in the national tour of “Cabaret” and had Broadway stints as Lucy in “Jekyll & Hyde,” the Mad Hatter in “Wonderfuland,” and Vivienne Kensington in “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” She said “Fun Home” is a good
show for people who like musicals and want to see what the next generation of musicals will look like. Shindle is president of the national union Actor’s Equity and mentioned the Peace Center and the arts’ role in the revitalization of downtown Greenville in a speech in March about possible funding cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts. According Shindle, “Fun Home” has a more singer-songwriter vibe to the music than more traditional musicals. “People who love plays will like it because the book scenes are very important and are not just there to fill space between songs,” she said. “There’s an inherent drama in Alison’s search for the truth.”

TALL ORDER Dwarves take center stage in CBT’s ‘Snow White the Ballet’ ARIEL TURNER | STAFF
Carolina Ballet Theatre’s 2017-18 season opener, “Snow White the Ballet,” is a unique retelling of the classic fairytale — and this go round, the dwarves are more than supporting players. The performance features choreography by Mark Diamond, choreographer for Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux at the Chautauqua Institution and program director for Charlotte Ballet II. Diamond previously worked extensively with CBT’s artistic director Hernan Justo and ballet mistress Anita Pacylowski-Justo at North Carolina Dance Theatre when they were dancers there. He first choreographed “Snow White the Ballet” in 2000 for North Carolina Dance Theatre, which was renamed Charlotte Ballet in 2014. It has since been performed multiple times in that company and others. Diamond says he chose Snow White as the subject for his choreography because he was looking for a family ballet that had a variety of interesting characters. The music Diamond chose is a variety of spirited and comical works from romantic composers Leo Delibes, Edvard Grieg, and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and prolific
“Classically trained ballet dancers are used to dancing with poise and good posture, but in this ballet, I am required to forget about all that training and move in a different way to portray the character of an ill-mannered dwarf.”

opera composer Gioachino Rossini. “I didn’t see any reason to limit it to any one composer, so I had a lot of freedom in my choices to match the mood of the scenes,” Diamond says. He also notes that the audience should keep an eye out for Grouchy the dwarf, who objects to Snow White’s appearance at their cottage but later becomes the one who loves her most. Laura Mortimer, who has danced with CBT for five seasons, plays Grouchy and says the role has been particularly challenging. “Classically trained ballet dancers are used to dancing with poise and good posture, but in this ballet I am required to forget about all that training and move in a different way to portray the character of an ill-mannered dwarf,” Mortimer says. Megan Loman, who has worked with
CBT for almost a decade and is in her fourth season as a company member, plays Giddy the dwarf. “I think it’s important that the audience tries to see the minute details of each character and their interaction between one another,” she says. “You could watch the show a thousand times and never see it all.”

The Swamp Rabbit Squeezebox Festival Most of the time, when someone creates a music festival, it’s to bring great bands to town, expose lesser-known artists, or benefit a good cause. The Swamp Rabbit Squeezebox Festival might be the first Upstate multiband event to have been created out of envy.
Dr. Robertson provided a very comprehensive exam and her comments regarding no change in my hearing deficits were very reassuring. We discussed the possibility of updating my hearing aides, since I purchased mine six years ago, and there have been advances in technology. Again, she was very through and quite knowledgeable. I have been very pleased with Davis Audiology and is well worth driving 1.5 hours to see them. — Alex Morton
“I was looking at accordion festivals in other places, like the Bay Area and Vancouver, and I was jealous that no one had created an accordion festival in Greenville, so I decided to organize my own,” says Upstate musician T.C. Costello. That’s right. Costello, an accordion player himself, has created Greenville’s first-ever accordion-based music festival, which will be held at the Radio Room. The lineup will include local players like Wasted Wine and Costello, alongside an array of national squeezebox pros including Robert Wilusz, Apathy Wizards, Tiny Wonder, and The Hold Steady’s Franz Nicolay. “I thought Robert would be a good traditional choice, and musicians like Apathy Wizards and Tiny Wonder are more on the alternative side,” Costello says. “And Franz is one of the bestknown accordion players in the country, so he brings a lot of marquee value. What I’d really like for people to take away from this is a better understanding of what people are doing with accordions, across all genres of music.” —Vincent Harris

Symphony Tour of Homes Visit some of Greenville’s classic homes during the Guild of the Greenville Symphony’s 39th annual Tour of Homes next weekend. The five homes on this year’s tour are in the Crescent and McDaniel areas and include 309 McDaniel Ave., 415 Crescent Ave., 201 Crescent Ave., 312 Crescent Ave., and 412 Crescent Ave. “From the beginning of its development to the present, it has been a popular location in which to live,” says Ellie Mioduski, marketing and publicity chair of the Guild. “Located in close proximity to downtown Greenville, it was not a planned subdivision. The area evolved from large tracts of land, which were divided over the years into home sites. Most of the homes were built for individuals and are unique. Because of its closeness to downtown, Falls Park, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail, the area has retained its appeal through the years.” Tours are self-guided, and homes can be explored at the visitors’ own pace. Each home will be decorated with flowers from a floral designer, with participating shops including ModFete, Embassy Flowers and Nature’s Gift, EON, Petals & Co., and Twigs. On Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 7–9 p.m., there will be a patron party to celebrate the homeowners and sponsors of the tour at 800 Crescent Ave., a 12-acre English manor and the home of Mary Burnett and Ellis Johnson. The party will include hors d’ouevres, wine and champagne, and live music. This home is only open for the patron party.
SWEET PLANTAIN OCT. 12 PEACE CHAMBER CONCERT SERIES
“The tour requires several hundred volunteers, months of preparation, and the cooperation and generous donations of everyone involved, especially the owners of the homes on tour, without which there would be no tour,” Mioduski says. All proceeds from the Tour of Homes go toward supporting the Greenville Symphony Orchestra and its various programs. —Emily Pietras

As the singer and primary songwriter for The Silos since 1985, Walter Salas-Humara has spent over three decades writing guitar-driven short stories, mixing straight-ahead rock with folkier, more intimate balladry. As the band hung on the periphery of mainstream success through the years, Salas-Humara built a substantial catalog of first-rate songs, and after spending the last few years focusing on a prolific solo career, he’s returned to those Silos classics on the recent “Work: Part One” and “Part Two” albums, albeit with very different arrangements. “The rule I made was no electric or percussion instruments of any kind,” he says. “I wanted to have a record of all my best songs in a style that was kind of unaffected.” The albums also gave Salas-Humara a chance to collaborate with producer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Richard Brotherton. “I’ve known Rich for so long, and he’s such a great singer and player and producer,” he says. “The nice thing for me is that he’s a very spare player, and he has great instincts. He plays in a way that makes it all about the songs.” —Vincent Harris

Since 1994, Waterville, N.C.’s Malcolm Holcombe has been writing songs about hard luck, hard choices, hard times, and hard love, creating a universe of characters and putting across their stories with a thorny, gritty rasp that drips with emotion. Because Holcombe often plays these songs in stripped-down arrangements centered around his acoustic guitar, he’s been commonly labeled a folk artist, even if other kinds of music are frequently part of his style. “It’s Andrea Furlan folk-blues, folk-rock, all kinds of stuff,” Holcombe says. “It’s hard to label things. I like to call it folk music just to keep it simple, but it’s a little bit of everything.” Holcombe’s new album, “Pretty Little Troubles,” has a darker atmosphere than some of his other efforts, and references abound to diﬃcult times, whether the songs are about matters of the heart or people struggling just to get by. “It’s hard for me to ignore the world around me now,” he says. “I don’t drink anymore, so I can’t enjoy a blackout to try to avoid reality.” —Vincent Harris

Promoter, producer, and rapper Brent Best (aka $amson) is unveiling his latest Palace show this weekend. His previous two events – through his management and production collective Bad Internet – were created to put the talent of the Upstate’s visual artists on display. But for the third volume at Artistry, he’s changing things up a bit. “The past two were strictly art installations, with maybe a DJ,” Best says, “but this one’s going to take it to another level. We’re going to have interactive pieces, live musicians, two house DJs, and a full gallery.” As for the reason behind the expansion, he says it’s simply a matter of room. “It’s the biggest venue we’ve been in so far,” he says. “I plan these things based on the space we’re in, and this space allowed for it. I felt like in the last two, the music would have been distracting people from enjoying the art, but here, you can enjoy the art and then go across a threshold to a whole different area with drinks and music. It’ll make for a more complete experience. I wanted it to be equal parts art show, live music, and party.” —Vincent Harris

South Carolina Children’s Theatre 1200 Pendleton St. | $9.50 Imagine the difference a single balloon can make. “Balloonacy” is a charming theater experience that finds an old lady alone on her
birthday. Children and their caretakers will delight in the comic antics that are generously sprinkled through her story and the friendship that ﬂoats into her life at just the right moment. With a little help from the audience and a lot of clowning around, she soon comes to find that companions come in all shapes. This nonverbal comedy for the very young is perfectly suited for audiences as young as 1 year old and invites all to share in the joy of togetherness. Performances run 30-40 minutes. 864-235-2885 | scchildrenstheatre.org THRU WED

Hurricane Advisory: It’s raining cats & dogs! Our country has had quite the series of hurricanes lately. Irma was HUGE and just as scary for those of us with four legs as it was for all of you. Thankfully, Greenville County was impacted far less than coastal areas, which enabled Animal Care to take in dogs and cats from other shelters in more affected places. We have just loved having our new friends here to stay. They’re part of the crew now and we want to show them how amazing our community is by finding them forever homes. If you are looking to adopt, help a hurricane victim by coming to Animal Care! These kittens from the Charleston coast are absolutely adorable. See you soon!
