HELPING HANDS

Places to volunteer in Greenville

GREENVILLE HUMANE SOCIETY 305 Airport Road, Greenville GHS seeks to preserve the lives of animals by providing a safe place for rescues and hopefully having them adopted by loving families and pet owners.

KRISTINA HERNANDEZ Contributor

Americans are generous in giving of their time to help others. Released a year ago, the Corporation for National and Community Service survey, which gleans its data from the U.S. Census Bureau, estimates that 30.3% of Americans volunteer in some capacity, with the largest percentage being in the Generation X age range. The survey showed that 30.8% of South Carolinians volunteer, which equals over 1.2 million people. Paulette Dunn, executive director at Loaves & Fishes, a local Greenville nonprofit that rescues food from donors like grocery stores and restaurants and helps serve that food to needy residents in the community, says Greenville is certainly a generous town. “We had over 150 volunteers in 2018 who gave 13,048 hours, which equates to over $300,000 of value to Loaves and Fishes,” Dunn said. “By the end of last year, we had served over 380,000 people in the community and our volunteers play a huge role in our mission.” Fundraising has the highest volunteer participation at 36%, according to the survey above, and food prep and distribution is right behind at 34%. For the volunteers at Loaves & Fishes, Dunn knows they believe in what the organization is doing on both an environmental and human level since the volunteers play such an integral part in meeting the needs of the community through taking concrete steps not to waste food. Here in Greenville, there are plenty of opportunities to spend time helping others. We asked our readers where they like to volunteer and did research of our own to find great organizations in town that are in need of extra help.

COMMUNITY VOICES

Eighteen years of Greenville Open Studios n story by ALAN ETHRIDGE | photo PROVIDED

This weekend, the 18th annual Greenville Open Studios has a record-high 158 participating artists, making it another vital weekend for the area’s visual arts community. Since 2004, over 575,000 visits to studios have been recorded, and over $3.4 million in art has been sold. In 2018, 45,332 visits were recorded, and the artists experienced record-high sales of $318,975. These impressive numbers are indicative of Greenville’s support of our cultural offerings. The weekend event showcases the talent and professionalism of visual artists who work and live in our community. Begun in 2002, Greenville Open Studios has grown to include artists in virtually every neighborhood of the county. Presenting sponsors for 2019 are SEWEurodrive, South State Bank and the Peace Center. Juergen, Christopher and Rainer Blickle, principals at SEW-Eurodrive, have been supporters of Greenville Open Studios for many years, and we look forward to working with them as our arts community expands. We welcome South State Bank as a presenting sponsor for the third year, and we appreciate the dedication of Mike Coggin and his team. The Peace Center’s sponsorship reflects the organization’s commitment to all arts, and we thank Megan Riegel and her staff. The Metropolitan Arts Council also thanks The Greenville Journal and WYFF for their generous media sponsorships. The event guarantees the community free and convenient access to the visual arts by creating opportunities for artists and the public to interact and for artists to share their processes and creative inspirations. Greenville Open Studios is the premier sales and marketing event for artists. Greenville Open Studios hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9; and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10. Contact the MAC office at 864-467-3132 any time throughout the weekend for information. Several artists will open their studios from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, as indicated in the catalog. There are several ways to select the studios you want to visit. Catalogs are available at the MAC office, 16 Augusta St., downtown, or online at www.greenvilleARTS.com. Catalogs were included in the Nov. 1 edition of The Greenville Journal and are available at many retailers throughout the downtown and Augusta Road areas. “Squared Away,” an exhibit at the MAC Gallery, consists of one 12-inch by 12-inch (by 12-inch) creation from each art-

ist, providing an overview of the event. The exhibit runs through Dec. 13. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The MAC website, www.greenvilleARTS.com, also has images from most participating artists, as well as directions to their studios and contact information. MAC is again offering a mobile app for the event. The app can be accessed by all smartphones through the MAC website and allows you to sort the artists alphabetically, by medium, accessibility and “Open Friday.” Choose your favorites and travel to the studios through Google Maps. The application was created by Robojuice, and we appreciate the company’s contribution. It is imperative that we continue to support the cultural assets that make Greenville a remarkable place to live and work. The arts in Greenville County account for an estimated economic impact of over $220 million annually, and they play a major role in attracting businesses and tourists. Public support is essential if the arts are to continue enhancing our quality of life. Greenville Open Studios also provides an opportunity for corporations to invest in local art for their offices. Countybank, Elliott Davis, Greenwood Capital, McMillan Pazdan Smith, Piedmont Arthritis Clinic, Prisma Health, South State Bank and TD Bank, to name a few, have made purchases. Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts, recently said, “we are in a time once again where our need for the arts is growing more and more apparent. Controversy and anger and fear seem to swirl around us these days in large supply. This has happened plenty of times in our history. We have needed and sought the healing and teaching power of the arts for a long time, perhaps forever.” The arts have proven to be a major factor in Greenville’s renaissance, and Greenville Open Studios has been vital in providing access to our city’s tremendous cultural assets. Alan Ethridge has been at the helm of the Metropolitan Arts Council since 2006. He can be reached at alan@greenvillearts.com

LIFE AFTER

SERVICE Local organizations fight to help Upstate veterans transition to civilian life successfully n story by STEPHANIE TROTTER | photos PROVIDED

PUTTING HOME BACK IN HOMEFRONT

Military veterans rely on key groups to succeed as they move on from the military. Officers gave Ed Byus the Active Duty Separation Checklist months before he wore his Army uniform for the last time. The document covered a multitude of possibilities and opportunities, from the G.I. Bill to V.A. medical care. But for Byus, a career officer, the most important message was missing. “Nobody told me I was going to go through a phase of ‘What’s my identity? Who am I?’” the Army veteran says. “I underestimated the mental aspect of the transition. You don’t realize the adrenaline you’re living on, because it feels normal. Everything was ‘Go, Go, Go!’ Nobody talked about the mental aspect of leaving such a high-pace position. You can’t replace a uniform with a suit and fit right in.” After 32 deployments across a 20-year career spanning the global war on terrorism, the accomplished helicopter pilot took his final flight, then moved to Greenville, his wife’s native home. The plan was to build a place on Paris Mountain and sink his teeth into civilian life, but entering this new chapter proved more than the marriage could handle. “I knew things were rocky,” the Special Ops veteran says. “But it all happened so fast. I didn’t have family, a friend or a church here. I didn’t have a job lined up. I just wanted to be with my kids, and everything started to snowball.” A chance encounter at Pizza Inn with his first-ever platoon leader led him to Upstate Warrior Solution. “I can’t make this stuff up,” Byus says. “I hadn’t seen him in 18 years, didn’t even

know he was here. God was looking out for me. They helped me settle into an apartment where my kids can stay with me. They helped facilitate a long-overdue foot surgery at the V.A. They’ve helped me network with my new job as a financial advisor with Edward Jones.” Upstate Warrior Solution provided Byus with a support system, and new, realistic orders. “Nobody talks about what you’re going to experience when your body stops running on years of adrenaline,” he says. “It’s not the PTSD that you hear about a lot.

But it’s natural to have highs and lows of emotions, as your body and adrenal glands recalibrate.” The loss of his sense of purpose and team pushed his lows lower, but Upstate Warrior Solution was able to rebuild many highs. “They’ve become my new team,” Byus says. “I can plug into guys who get it. I’m mentoring people who get it. I thought I was closing the chapter on the military and wouldn’t be connected at all, especially coming to a non-military town. But the community I thought I lost, I found. Greenville is starting to feel like home.”

Nobody told me I was going to go through a phase of ‘What’s my identity? Who am I?” -Ed Byus, Special Ops veteran

THE GENERAL: UPSTATE WARRIOR SOLUTION UPSTATEWARRIORSOLUTION.ORG

Over the last decade, Upstate Warrior Solution has grown from an idea to a certified 501(c)(3), offering assistance to the more than 100,000 veterans living across the Upstate. “To call us a one-stop shop is a misnomer. We are the gate for our returning men and women to get to all the resources they deserve after serving in the military,” says cofounder and president Charlie Hall. “We’re filling a leadership void, and serve as the hub, the concierge to direct traffic. Veterans are one of those demographics who have the most resources through government and non profits, but they don’t know how to access them.”

We are the gate for our returning men and women to get to all the resources they deserve after serving in the military.” -Charlie Hall, president and co-founder, Upstate Warrior Solution

Hall, a West Point grad, oversees operations in three offices that have provided services to 6,470 veterans, and 14,568 family members. “Veterans are one of the most diverse populations in the country,” he says. “Young,

old, black, white, rich, poor: all demographics across America have served. We’re trying to be a clearinghouse of resources. Advocacy is the biggest need.” Upstate Warrior Solution works to reach veterans through schools, churches, corporate offices, even jail. Representatives pinpoint necessities necessities, and connect veterans with community resources. Each case typically involves coordinating efforts with multiple partners in the community. “To quarterback services across the whole quality-of-life spectrum with more than 100 partners, is challenging,” Hall says. “In particular, with the housing effort, we have about 10 groups that are part of that solution.” Over the last two years, the Upstate Continuum of Care, led by UWS and United Housing Connections, has secured housing solutions, trimming the list of local homeless vets from 250 to 140. “This is the community working together,” Hall says. “This is a collaborative effort. UWS is a leader in the effort, but it is community partners coming together for the common goal of housing our homeless veterans.” He predicts access to all needs, from education to employment, housing to health care, will increase as the local veteran population continues to inch higher. “The pipeline will not dry up any time soon,” he says. “As the human population grows, the veteran population will grow as well. There will be another conflict, and the military is growing, especially given the current state of affairs. The vast majority of our clients are not from Greenville, but they moved here because it’s a great place to live.”

Jordana Megonigal fields another call. The Veteran Employment and Transition Summit is just days away, and her company, The Recon Network, is co-hosting the event, along with the State Council of the Society of Human Resources Management. “This event is unique in that it’s bringing both sides together: the veteran who may need direction finding a job; and companies who want to improve their hiring process to employ more veterans,” Megonigal says. “Hopefully, we’ll see a lot of progress in South Carolina veteran hiring, because we’ll have all of the right people in the room.” While job-search resources already exist for men and women moving on out of uniform, Recon addresses a seldom-discussed but important topic. “As they leave the military, there’s a lot of focus on finding a job,” she says. “But there’s a gap in the process of helping vets find the ‘what’ and ‘why.’ These soldiers have operated with great success when given a mission, when given a purpose, but when they get out, no one is providing that for them. So, we provide purpose-based career and transition planning for veterans and military spouses.” The one-time magazine publisher (and Community Journal special project contributor) witnessed local veterans’ needs to connect to resources a few years ago, and felt obliged to use her skillset. When officers with the Pentagon’s Soldier for Life program took note of her work, they encouraged her to go nationwide.

As they leave the military, there’s a lot of focus on finding a job, but there’s a gap in the process of helping vets find the ‘what’ and ‘why.’” -Jordana Megonigal, the Recon Network “There is a long process of separation from the military that takes place,” she says. “Not all transitions are the same, and someone at Fort Bragg may not get the same standardized exit as someone at Fort Jackson. And no one is talking about purpose, the veteran’s identity and what they want to do in their next stage of life.” Recon now partners with corporations like ScanSource and Wells Fargo to provide online curriculum for veterans across the U.S., to assess their current roles, values and legacy, and then form a personal mission with obtainable goals. “A lot of people have the idea of purposeful living as being a very Zen concept,” Megonigal says. “But the reality is each individual needs to be able to have some sort of meaning in their life, regardless of where we find it, in order to be successful and be healthy.” With only distant familial connections to the military, Megonigal says she has found her worth in assisting veterans.

Veterans bring work ethic, experience to local businesses

n story by EVAN PETER SMITH | photos PROVIDED

I

n Greenville County alone, there are 42 veteran-owned businesses. From appliance repair to architecture, landscaping to animal care, thermal imaging to epoxy solutions, the products and services offered by these companies are as diverse as the military population itself. Even more companies in the area serve as major employers of veterans, relying on the experience the military has provided their employees as a means to market success. In honor of Veteran’s Day, here are three companies with deep roots in the local veteran community that actively make a difference today.

NORTH AMERICAN RESCUE

Retired Staff Sgt. Robert Castellani was far more comfortable jumping out of airplanes than he was sitting in a classroom. Before a neck injury forced him into retirement, Castellani had more than nine years of active military experience as an Air Force pararescueman. Four of those years were spent in the Joint Special Operations Command, during which time Castellani and his unit were constantly on alert for calls that sent them all over the world: jungles; mountains; desert plains; urban sprawls. “With special operations in particular, your world is so tight, so focused,” Castellani said. “You have no clue what’s going on in pop culture or some political election or anything like that.” Castellani said he sees that isolation, that singular focus, as a significant reason why so many veterans across all branches of the military have such difficulty upon re-entering civilian life. Castellani himself never made it through college. Instead, he said he put his military experience to use by founding North American Rescue, a company that designs, develops and tests life-saving portable products to be used by military, law enforcement and civilian first responders. What began in 1996 as a small operation run out of Castellani’s basement has now grown into an industry leader in survivability and casualty-care products. NAR specializes in filling in what Castellani calls “equipment gaps” — creating the life-saving equipment that military and first responders need but don’t yet have. Along with operating a full-fledged training operation under its enterprise, the company has also gained a reputation in the Upstate as a major employer of veterans. Castellani said the combined military experience of NAR’s staff is what allows them to spot areas of need that other companies would overlook. “We know what is needed,” Castellani said, “because we’ve been there already.”

With special operations in particular, your world is so tight, so focused. You have no clue what’s going on in pop culture or some political election or anything like that.” -Retired Staff Sgt. Robert Castellani, founder, North American Rescue 8

MEDALS OF AMERICA

Lee Foster, the CEO of Medals of America, was recently walking with his kids through an underground parking garage in downtown Greenville when he saw an old man cleaning a set of glass double doors. As the old man shuffled aside to let them pass, Foster spotted an Army hat atop the man’s head. “All I said was: ‘Hey man, go Army!’ And you should’ve seen how much his face lit up,” Foster recalled. “Because in that moment, he’s not some old guy washing windows beside a Starbucks; no, he’s an Army vet.” Foster, a ninth-generation veteran himself who served in the Army for 15 years, said moments like that make him proud of the legacy his father Army veteran Col. Frank Foster began when he founded Medals of America in 1976. In that time, Lee Foster has watched the company expand from a small back closet to an 80,000-square-foot facility where thousands of products are shipped out each year.

You give a shadow box to a veteran as a gift and I don’t care how hardened they are; they’ll be in tears.” -Lee Foster, Army veteran, CEO, Medals of America Medals of America originally specialized in creating shadow boxes in which military medals and ribbons could be arranged. For veterans who have lost those items, Medals of America is able to craft meticulous recreations that are certifiably identical to the originals under guidelines established by the Institute of Heraldry. For certain medals, Foster stressed, the company requires proof, in order to protect against acts of stolen valor. He said that high standard matters when it comes to recognizing valid service and sacrifice. “You give a shadow box to a veteran as a gift,” Foster said, “and I don’t care how hardened they are; they’ll be in tears.” Since its founding, the company has expanded to designing and creating T-shirts, hats, dog tags, tactical and range gear, coins, patches, clothing, banners and other items. Medals of America, which has dozens of veterans on staff, also works with non-profits like

Upstate Warrior Solution, which connects veterans and their families to resources and employment opportunities. Foster said his own family history is a constant reminder of why he finds the work so meaningful. “I always tell people we’re a happy company,” Foster said. “We try to bring joy most of all.”

For distinguished medals, Medals of America requires “PROOF OF VALOR” in the form of a DD-214 or any other verified documentation.

LOCKHEED MARTIN

Lockheed Martin has been operating in Greenville for 35 years, during which time the company has enmeshed itself in the local veteran community. “When it comes to the company culture, it’s huge,” said Leslie Farmer, Lockheed Martin’s communications lead. In its Greenville facility, Lockheed Martin employs about 500 people, 40% of whom are veterans. Farmer said those 200 or so employees are crucial from both a cultural and a practical perspective. “These are people who had direct experience with many of the products and services we provide as a company during their time in the military,” Farmer said. That familiarity offers a unique opportunity to understand areas of improvement when it comes to the products or services, as well as the process behind their development. Military contracts, military expectations and schedules: understanding the nuances inherent in that process is invaluable, Farmer said, when it comes to interfacing with customers in a way that makes the company stronger. Locally, Lockheed Martin has developed partnerships with veteran outreach groups, including USO of South Carolina and Upstate Warrior Solution. The company is also engaged in efforts to cultivate STEM skills amongst veterans in partnership with Greenville Tech, with sponsored resource centers at four of its different campuses. “We’re always looking at new opportunities and ways to engage in different organizations and the services they provide,” Farmer said.

Tanya Stiegler, a jeweler at Art Up Studios in Hampton Station, will host the Greenville Jewelry Invitational on Sunday, Dec. 8. The event will showcase an array of wearable designs made by Greenville artists and is open to the public. Stiegler’s professional and academic experience led to her involvement in the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths. That group is now defunct, but it influenced Stiegler’s desire to form a similar group in Greenville. “Greenville has such a vibrant arts community, but I feel that our jewelry artists may not be quite as visible as a whole to the general public,” Stiegler said. “We’re all hunkered down in our stores and studios working away.” Stiegler said she hopes the event will demonstrate the wealth and variety of jewelry-making talent in Greenville. This is the invitational’s first year, but Stiegler plans to make it an annual occurrence. “I want the Greenville Jewelry Invitational to make it easy for people to ex-

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // NOVEMBER 8

On Nov. 19, artist and author Mary Whyte will discuss her most recent book, “We the People: Portraits of Veterans in America” at the Book Your Lunch event, hosted by Fiction Addiction. Whyte, a lifelong painter, says her career as an artist started in eighth grade when she sold her first work. As she got older, she studied oil painting in college, but says that using watercolors was something she had to “figure out on her own.” Being an artist “is not something you decide to do,” Whyte says. “It’s something you discover you already are and at some point, you decide to do something about it.” As she developed as an artist, Whyte says she drew inspiration from artists like Andrew Wyeth, John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer because they painted people.

[Being an artist] is not something you decide to do. It’s something you discover you already are and at some point, you decide to do something about it.” -Mary Whyte, artist “I was most interested in painting (people),” Whyte said. “I think the human connection, that as diverse as anybody is, we all have emotional qualities in common.” Her love of painting people combined with her parents’ service in the Red Cross during World War II led Whyte on a seven-year-long project to paint veterans from all 50 states. After visiting One80 Place, a homeless shelter in Charleston, Whyte says she was advised by veterans she met there to paint veterans “from the top down,” which meant that she needed to feature veterans from all walks of life. “I made a list of all the different kinds of people that I wanted to paint,” Whyte said. “Everything from an astronaut to a homeless man, and everything in between, including a taxi driver, school-

teacher, tattoo artist and dairy farmer. Then I set out to where I could find someone who fit that and started driving.” Driving from town to town, she would ask people if they were veterans, honorably discharged, and if they would like to participate in the project. Based on those responses, she says she chose the ones she thought would be most interesting to paint. According to Whyte, no matter the age or reason they enlisted, background they came from, or experiences they had in service, they all had compelling stories, which influenced each painting. “The emotion I portrayed in the paintings, some of them it’s an emotion of exhaustion, some is the emotion of determination,” she says. “It depended on what I got from each individual veteran and that determined how I portrayed them in each painting.” After her parents passed away while Whyte was still in her 20s, she says she couldn’t get their stories as an adult; however, this project helped to shape the way she respects and understands the sacrifice that veterans make. Early on in Whyte’s journey, she says she visiting an Upstate VFW where she met a World War II veteran named Gus. When says that when she asked him how long he had served, Gus replied, “All my life.” According to Whyte, she told this story to a veteran she recently spoke with and he plans to use Gus’ response when someone asks him the same question.

"SAY HIS NAME the lynching of george green" Panel will raise awareness about Green’s story and invite discussion about current n story by JESSICA MULLEN | photos PROVIDED community issues Mill Community Ministries, a local group of self-described “social entrepreneurs” is holding a panel discussion its members hope will help heal old wounds stemming from past racial injustices in the Greenville area. The panel, which will be held Nov. 14 at Long Branch Baptist Church, is called “Say His Name: The Lynching of George Green.” George Green, who lived in Taylors, was killed in his bedroom on Nov. 16, 1933, following a dispute with his landlord, according to Mill Community Ministries. In addition to raising awareness of Green’s story, the community dialogue will focus on present issues of gentrification and affordable housing in Greenville. The panelists have extensive backgrounds in criminal justice, affordable housing and racial justice, according to Traci Barr, who is the event coordinator at Mill Community Ministries.

EJI believes that truth and reconciliation are sequential. We must address oppressive histories by honestly and soberly recognizing the pain of the past.” -Equal Justice Initiative “We’ve had over 300 people register for the event, mostly through word of mouth. It’s exciting to see the community’s interest in this [discussion],” Barr said. The local effort is inspired by the Equal Justice Initiative, a Montgomery, Alabama-based, nonprofit. In May 2018, EJI opened the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which memorializes 4,400 documented lynchings across the United States. Over 800 counties, largely concentrated in the Southeast, are represented by 800 steel monuments. According to the EJI website, “the memorial is more than a static monument. Outside the structure is a field of identical monuments, waiting to be claimed and installed in the counties

they represent. Over time, the memorial will serve as a report on which parts of the country have confronted the truth of this terror and which have not.” In 2019, EJI started the Community Remembrance Project, which allows counties to apply to install one of the 800 steel monuments in a permanent location in the county it represents.

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice will memorialize

4,400 documented lynchings across the United States

According to Barr, the effort to bring one of these monuments to Greenville was initiated by a group of students who participated in the Diversity Leaders Institute at Furman University. EJI’s monument denotes four recorded lynchings in Greenville County. George Green’s 1933 slaying was the most recent. The community awareness event on Nov. 14 kicks off a two-year process that organizers hope will bring racial reconciliation to Greenville County. A soil collection ceremony will be the next step, Barr said. The Equal Justice Initiative collects a clear jar of soil from each documented lynching location, which will be on display at their Montgomery museum. Installation of a memorial marker will follow. Tentatively planned for 2021, the group will bring home one of the EJI memorial stones from Montgomery and it will be installed at a permanent site in the city following a final community event at the Peace Center. According to its website, “EJI believes that truth and reconciliation are sequential. We must address oppressive histories by honestly and soberly recognizing the pain of the past.”

THE NEXT STEPS A soil collection ceremony will be the next step.

Installation of a memorial marker will follow. Tentatively planned for 2021, the community will bring home one of the EJI memorial stones from Montgomery and it will be installed at a permanent site in the city following a final community event at the Peace Center.

BRYAN STEVENSON Since its founding, EJI has secured REDUCED SENTENCES or RELEASE for 140 condemned death row inmates

Paris Mountain area: so much more than a state park

story by KIMBERLY COLLIER | photo by JOHN OLSON

Richard Pearis, one of the first documented (if not the first) white man to settle in what is now Greenville County was an Irishman from Virginia with a sordid history and past. The local stories and 'legends' about Pearis tend to paint a less than romantic picture for one of the earliest landowners in Greenville County. Pearis married a Cherokee woman and eventually became very close with the Cherokee Indians who were indigenous to the area. Pearis and the Cherokee continued to work out trades and deals which granted Pearis more and more land in the region. Eventually his land holdings would reach or even exceed 10 square miles - more than 1,000 acres. Land records confirm that Pearis constructed a plantation in the area which included a store, gristmill and even a sawmill. The land that Pearis owned included what is known today as "Paris" Mountain. The mass amount of land sales by the Cherokee prompted the superintendent of Indian affairs, Jonathon Stuart, to write a letter to the Cherokee chastising them for selling so much land to Pearis. Legend has it that Pearis was captured during the Revolutionary War (he sided with the British) and was held captive in Charleston for several months. After the war and upon his return home he discovered a completely destroyed plantation and in a modern day movie-like twist he left his family to fend for themselves as he secured his own safety with passage to the Bahamas. Pearis ended up purchasing land in the Bahamas and remained there until his death in 1794. The land the Pearis family owned became known as

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // NOVEMBER 8

"Pearis" Mountain and eventually the name shortened to "Paris". The earliest use of the mountain by the city of Greenville would come years later, when in 1888, the city began to use Paris Mountain as a water source. The city built multiple lakes (Lake Placid, Mountain Lake and Buckhorn Lake) and dams to be used as part of the Greenville City Water System reservoir. The Paris Mountain reservoir system was used extensively until the Table Rock reservoir was constructed and put into service in the late 1920s.

The Paris Mountain area is a beautiful wooded location offering stunning views of downtown Greenville from one side of the mountain and mountain vistas from the other. Beyond a water supply, the area provided residents and tourists with a popular resort location, Altamont Hotel. The hotel was constructed on the summit of the mountain and was primarily used by wealthy Charlestonians who preferred the cooler mountain air to the hot and humid summer climate. However, the trek from downtown Greenville to the hotel took almost two hours to complete and the terrain was rough and ragged. The hotel also lacked the modern convenience of running

water and quickly went out of fashion, closing its doors in 1898. The property the resort occupied was sold to N.J. Holmes who created a religious college at the location. First known as the Altamont Bible and Missionary Institute, the college later became known as Holmes Bible College, which is still in operation today – though not on Paris Mountain. The building that housed the resort and then the college was destroyed by fire in 1920. The state park on Paris Mountain was constructed during the 1930s as part of Franklin Roosevelt's "New Deal." The Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) created Paris Mountain State Park and Camp Buckhorn's construction followed in 1936. Camp Buckhorn offers visitors a lodge and 10 cabins for overnight stays, accommodating up to 40 people. (The main lodge underwent renovation in 2011.) Today, Paris Mountain State Park is a popular destination for local residents and visitors alike. The state park offers a 40-site family campground with a mix of tent and RV sites. Camp Buckhorn is a group facility located on Buckhorn Lake at the north end of the park. Lake Placid, a 15 acre lake, is the park's main spot for boating and fishing. North Lake, a larger lake located in the park is reserved especially for fisherman - with no boating allowed. The Paris Mountain area is beautiful with wooded green spaces and miles and miles of views, including stunning views of downtown Greenville. The views and wooded seclusion feel of the area makes it a popular "in town" escape for everyday living.

HO M E Phillip Boykin returns home to Greenville in national tour of ‘Once on This Island’ n story by PAUL HYDE | photo provided by the PEACE CENTER

F

or Phillip Boykin, acting is not just a job. It’s a high calling. “As an entertainer, I was given these gifts to uplift people and make their life a little better — even if it’s only for 90 minutes in a musical,” Boykin said. “I want to take their mind off their troubles for a little while and inspire them to do the same for someone else.” Boykin’s talents, nurtured in Greenville, led to starring roles on Broadway (“Porgy and Bess”) and in Hollywood (“Top Five,” with fellow South Carolinian Chris Rock). Now, Boykin is returning home in the national tour of “Once on This Island,” running Nov. 5-10 at the Peace Center. Winner of the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, “Once on This Island” is the tale of Ti Moune, a peasant girl searching for her place in

the world and ready to risk everything for love. She embarks on a journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. Boykin stars as Tonton Julian, who finds the orphan Ti Moune. Boykin created the role in the 2017 Broadway revival of this 1990 musical. “I immediately connected with the story of an orphan who finds a home,” Boykin explained in his resonant bassbaritone during a phone interview. Boykin was adopted, as was the young woman who played his adopted daughter on Broadway. The production’s vibrant Caribbean music and lyrics were created by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, Tonywinning songwriters of “Anastasia” and “Ragtime.” “There’s been a standing ovation after every performance. I think that means they’re liking it,” Boykin said.

GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM // NOVEMBER 8

I immediately connected with the story of an orphan who finds a home. I myself was adopted, and the young woman who played my adopted daughter on Broadway was also adopted.” -Phillip Boykin, actor Growing up in Greenville

'Island' on tour

One of 10 children, Boykin grew up in Greenville, mentored by beloved figures in the Greenville arts and education community who encouraged the young man with the big voice to reach for his dreams. He started at the Phillis Wheatley Repertory Theatre for Youth, created and directed by his adoptive father, the late Dwight W. Woods. Marjorie Bennett, then choral director at Hollis Middle and Greenville High schools, put him in a musical version of “A Christmas Carol.” “She asked me as a middle school student to sing a role in the high school play,” Boykin said. “I was like, ‘Wow, this is amazing!’” Other mentors included Michael Rice of the Fine Arts Center and Virginia Uldrick of the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities. The state Theatre Association will welcome Boykin home by inducting him into the South Carolina Hall of Fame after Tuesday’s opening performance.

Boykin usually stays close to Broadway -he lives in New Jersey-but couldn’t resist touring the country. Several of his siblings, who live in Greenville, will see Boykin in a musical for the first time. None were able to visit New York. “Part of the reason I’m extremely excited is that I’m going to invite all of them to see me perform,” Boykin said. On Broadway, the 90-minute musical was performed in the round. Critics raved, calling it “ravishing” (New York Times), “captivating” (Hollywood Reporter) and “stunning” (“AM New York”). The production, with a cast of 22, was restaged for the national tour. “We’ve got sand all over the stage, and there’s a river running through it," Boykin said. Though he’s appeared on TV and in movies, Boykin loves musical theater the most. “I love the live audience,” Boykin said. “We don’t get to do a second or third or hundredth take … so it has to be right.” What’s on Boykin’s bucket list? “One day I’m going to tour the world with an orchestra and other singers,” he said. “I’m still dreaming.”


SLEEPING BEAUTY Phyllis Mills Wyeth: A Celebration on view through December 29, 2019

From the late 1960s onward, Phyllis Mills Wyeth (November 13, 1940 – January 14, 2019) was a muse to her husband, artist Jamie Wyeth. The paintings assembled in this traveling exhibition are a memorial tribute to her and reflect her vibrant spirit and love of nature, horses, and her ever-present dogs. Phyllis Wyeth was a noted philanthropist, conservationist, environmentalist, arts supporter, accomplished horsewoman, and a staunch advocate for the rights of those with disabilities. When you visit the GCMA, you’ll discover a carefully curated selection of American art, including the world’s largest public collection of watercolors by Andrew Wyeth and one of the world’s best institutional collections of works by our country’s most acclaimed living artist, Jasper Johns. The museum’s unrivaled Southern Collection highlights a collection of clay vessels created by the enslaved potter David Drake; a selection of sculpture by South Carolina artist Grainger McKoy; and one of the largest collections of paintings by African-American artist William H. Johnson outside the Smithsonian.

Retreat

The Commons food hall set to open next week

n story by ARIEL TURNER | photos by IRINA RICE

Five years of dreaming, four years of planning, three years of tenant shuffling, two years of construction, and now, The Commons food hall is days away from opening. The target opening date for the 12,000-square-foot food hall at 147 Welborn St. is Nov. 11. But until the doors actually open, nothing is certain with large projects. Since the project was announced four years ago for former warehouse space that will sit in the center of the future Unity Park, The Commons has gone through multiple variations of tenants. The final version reflects the relationship built by Greenville’s restaurant community. The original lineup was based somewhat on the involvement of local agriculture nonprofit Feed & Seed, which ultimately bowed out. So did others: Bacon Bros.

We have tried to cover every detail imaginable so that we all succeed as a group from day one.”

first brick-and-mortar; the new Golden Brown & Delicious, moving from Village of West Greenville to open to a new concept with the same ownership; and Methodical Coffee’s third location and new roasting operation. Surrounding a central common area, each restaurant has a space that represents its distinct personality. GB&D and Automatic Taco flank either side of the entrance. Next is the Bake Room counter and Methodical’s counter, kitchen, and roasting facility. Across the common area, a private event space sits between Automatic Taco and the Tap’s bar and retail area. This group of locally grown small businesses represents people who supported each other’s businesses long before they came together in The Commons. During their tenant meetings, they worked to further a symbiotic relationship. “We have tried to cover every detail imaginable so that we all succeed as a group from day one,” says Wade Taylor, Bake Room owner and baker. “Anna [Okupinski] from the Community Tap has done an awesome job of coordinating the meetings, and we will all be better for it.” Taylor, the baker based in the Village of West Greenville and a constant presence at farmers’ markets, has many connections to the group.


THINGS TO SEE & DO

Marco Suarez, co-owner of Methodical Coffee, agreed that shared history has been vital. “Methodical was one of my first wholesale accounts,” Taylor says. “Having our products in their shop really gave the bakery a boost. … I met Alex (GB&D) shortly after that and have been selling him bread since they opened.” He didn’t know the teams from Community Tap or Automatic Taco. “But I have frequented their businesses for years,” he says. “Knowing who was going to be involved and if they would be aligned with our view of hospitality was important,” he says. “Good fences make good neighbors, but in a food hall there’s not a whole lot of fences, so you need to make sure you’re aligned with the other businesses. When we heard who all was involved, it was a resounding yes!

Although we are separate entities, all of The Commons tenants are very much aware that we are all parts in a greater whole.” -Chrissy Thomas, co-owner, Automatic Taco Not only were we fans of these businesses, we were fans of the people and knew not only would our businesses be complementary, we would really enjoy working together with them.” Chrissy and Nick Thomas, owners of Automatic Taco food truck, have been looking for a brick-and-mortar location for years. They settled on The Commons because of relationships. “When Automatic Taco food truck first hit the road in 2015, we had a very loose understanding of how supportive Greenville can be to fledgling businesses,” Chrissy Thomas says. The first time their truck was parked at Community Tap, masses of people showed up. “We did not anticipate that kind of support,” she says. “Since then, it has been a truly synergistic relationship that has been very steady in a very unsteady industry.” For the Community Tap, whose owners Mike and Anna Okupinski and Ed Buffington are minority owners in The Commons property, this second location allows them to polish an already-successful model. The space boasts

streamlined finishes; a larger bar and seating area; roll-up doors for a screened indoor/ outdoor feel; and DHEC certification, which allows food options. Golden Brown & Delicious’s chef and coowner Alex George is moving his popular restaurant in the Village of West Greenville to The Commons to reclaim the community atmosphere lost when the Village Grind coffee shop moved from an adjoining space to a new location across Pendleton Street. The move also allows George to create a restaurant with a six-seat chef’s counter, an interactive dining experience not found anywhere in Greenville. George, personally, will ask guests at the counter about their culinary tastes and memories and create a menu on the spot in the completely open kitchen. Actually, there will be two kitchens — one for the main restaurant and another for a walk-up window facing the common area. Aside from the bar, seating inside GB&D will be at large community tables. GB&D will be the last restaurant to open, likely in December. The Commons will be open seven days a week, says Community Tap’s Buffington, with the schedule based on demand and also to give restaurants a day off — but not the same day. “Although we are separate entities, all of The Commons tenants are very much aware that we are all parts in a greater whole,” Chrissy Thomas says. The Commons has the opportunity to be a unique development with only Greenvillemade businesses, she says. “That idea alone puts the onus on us to turn The Commons into a truly extraordinary destination.”

UPSTATE BEAT

Greenville’s got a squeeze box VINCENT HARRIS Contributor

It’s accordion time. Now that Halloween is over, the only thing we really have to look forward to until Thanksgiving is T.C. Costello’s Swamp Rabbit Squeezebox Festival at The Velo Fellow this Friday, Nov. 10-Saturday, Nov. 11. Costello has long been one of the Upstate’s best-kept secrets; an accordion-playing mad scientist who’s toured the world, written amazing songs that often sound like they’re haunting folk ballads from the 19th century, and created the Squeezebox Festival, a twoday musical shindig with an eclectic slate of performers. Looking for something weirder-than-usual to get into this weekend? This is the festival for you. In addition to Costello himself, playing mad waltzes, Celtic reel, staggering folk ballads and woozy sea chanteys from his magnificent album “Horizon Songs,” you can catch Greenville’s own eerie, funhouse-mirror folk duo Wasted Wine, the kaleidoscopic Greensboro roots-rockers Tail Light Rebellion, the Asheville “folk-noir” band Resonant Rogues. Plus, and more. Plus, rumor has it that The Velo Fellow is planning on brewing

up a special Squeezebox-Fest-themed beer. The festival will also serve as a fundraiser for Velo Fellow employee Taylor Clerc, who was injured recently injured in a hit-and-run accident. And that’s all before you get to the two anchoring events of the festival: the Irish Session Dinner on Friday; and the Murder Ballad Brunch on Saturday. The Irish Session Dinner will be a comeone, come-all Celtic-tune-centric singalong led by Costello and Daniel Hendrix, who will be playing the uilleann pipes, otherwise known as an Irish bagpipe. “I’ve visited Ireland for the last two years,” Costello says, “and I went to a lot of ‘sessions’ with a lot of local people getting together and playing folk songs. The audience members can sing and clap along if they like, and I thought it would be cool to bring that to the festival. Anybody is welcome to join in and sing or play a song.” The Murder Ballad Brunch will be a bit darker, obviously. It’s an early-afternoon set centering on a ballad form that’s older than the printing press.

I’ve visited Ireland for the last two years and I went to a lot of ‘sessions’ with a lot of local people getting together and playing folk songs. The audience members can sing and clap along if they like, and I thought it would be cool to bring that to the festival. Anybody is welcome to join in and sing or play a song. ” -T.C. Costello, musician

“It’s basically an open-mic where people are very strongly encouraged to do murder ballads,” Costello says. “I know I’ll be doing a few of them, and I’m encouraging my friends to do to do them. We’ll see how that works out.” Costello has been putting on the Swamp Rabbit Squeezebox Festival for three years now, and he’s tried to make each year a mix of old and new. “I figured it would be kind of foolish not to do it with myself and Wasted Wine,” he says, “because we’re local and we’re kind of obvious choices, but with the regional acts I thought I should work harder to vary it up. I try to ask around and find different people, and luckily there are acts who were more than willing to help me with it.” And The Velo Fellow seems to be a perfect fit for this edition of the festival, in terms of both ambience and enthusiasm. “It has kind of old-world-pub-type feel,” Costello says, “and I thought an accordion festival would go really well there. And The Velo Fellow seems to agree; I think they’re really excited about it. They’re actually brewing a special beer for the festival; I’m not sure what they’re going to call it, though we’ve been bouncing names back and forth. And I believe they want to do food specials, too.”

THE SWAMP RABBIT SQUEEZEBOX FESTIVAL SATURDAY-SUNDAY, NOV. 9-10 THE VELO FELLOW $10 SUGGESTED DONATION THEVELOFELLOW.COM Costello says that the most pleasant surprise he’s encountered over the three years of the festival is the variety of the crowd that attends it. “It’s brought together lots of people from different age groups,” he says. “We’ve had people in their 60s, people in their 30s, teenagers, all kinds of people. And I think it’s kind of interesting, because you typically think of the accordion as having had its heyday back before rock ‘n’ roll became big. But it’s definitely been making a comeback in the last couple decades with bands like The Decemberists, Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys.”

PAUL'S PICK

Pops series WOWS Greenville Symphony Orchestra audiences n story by PAUL HYDE | photos PROVIDED

No doubt about it, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra’s Pops series is a winner. The orchestra’s recent Pops performance of “John Williams Greatest Hits” attracted both longtime concert-goers and millennial music fans. The Peace Center was packed for the spectacular concert of Williams’ music, familiar from such film scores as “Star Wars,” “Superman,” “Jurassic Park” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Many in the audience were attending their first concert ever by the orchestra, officials said. This is exactly what a symphony orchestra should be doing in 2019: enlarging its musical vision to reach out to new audiences from all walks of life. In its 73rd season, the Greenville Symphony continues to grow, evolve and diversify. Classical concerts, of course, remain the orchestra’s bread and butter. For longtime concert-goers, the orchestra offers a Masterworks series featuring the big romantic works, a Chamber series for smaller-scale concerts, and an intimate small ensemble series (“Spotlight”) as well. In addition, the orchestra performs dozens of children’s programs every year. The Pops series, now two years old, greatly broadens the orchestra’s appeal. It took a while, of course, to come about — 70 years, in fact. Credit for the Pops concerts goes to longtime symphony board member Jerry Dempsey, who passed away in early March. Equal credit goes to Julie Fish, the orchestra’s executive director, who made the series a reality.

The orchestra will offer two more Pops programs this season:

THE POPULAR “HOLIDAY AT PEACE” CONCERTS, DEC. 20–22, will feature the critically-acclaimed vocal duo Diane Penning and Paul Langford. “Holiday at Peace” concerts have been a longtime fixture, but only recently became part of the Pops series.

“REVOLUTION: THE BEATLES SYMPHONIC EXPERIENCE,” the authorized symphonic tribute to the Fab Four, will feature topnotch vocalists with full accompaniment by the Greenville Symphony on March 26, 2020. The rockin’ concert will offer special features, including animation, video, rare photos of the Beatles.

JUBILANT JOHN WILLIAMS With its Halloween theme, the Oct. 24 John Williams concert was jubilant. A costume contest encouraged both adults and children to dress up like characters from films associated with Williams’ music. Darth Vader was in the audience. And Indiana Jones. Other characters from “Star Wars” and “Harry Potter” seemed particularly popular. And the orchestra got into the act, too. Concertmaster Laura Colgate was Harry Potter. The harpist came as Dumbledore. Also spotted in the orchestra: Superman, Jaws the shark, and Dobby the house-elf. Guest conductor Thiago Tiberio led a spirited performance of Williams’ dynamic works. It’s easy to see why Williams’ music is so accessible: He knows how to

write a soaring melody and a thrilling, brassy march. A listener was reminded of how much Williams owes to British composers such as Holst and Elgar. Williams is a hugely popular composer but firmly rooted in classical tradition.

DANCING WITH ‘MOTOWN’ An earlier Pops performance, the orchestra’s “Motown” concert this past spring, proved equally successful — if people dancing in the aisles of the Peace Center is a good gauge of success. Guest conductor William Waldrop took the audience on a tour of big hits from the past, such as “Dancing in the Street,” Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” James

Brown’s “I Feel Good,” Lionel Ritchie’s “All Night Long” and a dozen other classics. Three featured vocalists brought down the house: Shayna Steele, Chester Gregory and Michael Lynche. The Greenville Symphony Orchestra, at 73 years old, is not a stuffy but a spry and nimble septuagenarian. And the orchestra is a vital cultural asset that contributes to making Greenville a worldclass community.

MOE’S ORIGINAL BAR B Q (ON THURSDAYS)

OR BRICK STREET CAFÉ A Thanksgiving play deserves turkey, but unless you’re hitting a meat ‘n’ three or deli, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find it on a regular menu. Moe’s Original Bar B Q in the Westone development saves the day with the Thanksgiving Day sandwich. Moe’s dish is an all-in-one Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, cornbread dressing, cranberry sauce, white sauce, all between two buttered buns. Add two sides to round it out. Since it’s only available on Thursdays, it works if you’re attending one of the two Thursday-night shows. Alternatively, Brick Street Cafe, within walking distance of the Warehouse Theatre, specializes in comfort food that feels as good as holiday dinners are supposed to.

what we're SEEING “THE THANKSGIVING PLAY” AT WAREHOUSE THEATRE

In the Warehouse Theatre’s production of “The Thanksgiving Play,” four well-meaning, “woke” people try to create the ultimate politically correct version of the first Thanksgiving. In writer Larissa FastHorse’s 2015 play, three teaching artists bring in an American Indian advisor to help them create a play that is culturally sensitive, only to discover that said Native American is simply an actor, and a white one at that, who’s able to slip into different ethnicities depending on the gig.

THE PLAY GAINED RECOGNITION BY BEING RECOGNIZED IN 2017 BY THE KILROYS , AN ANNUAL LIST OF UNDERPRODUCED-PLAYS BY WOMEN.
