Duke Energy works to create outdoor classroom as part of Unity Park n story by GEORGIA GAY | rendering provided by MKSK STUDIOS

Cascades Verdae is designed with one purpose in mind, to help our residents enjoy their families and friends and remain independent as they age. We do this by providing Greenville with the premier Full Continuum of Care.

Call Us Today • (864) 606-3055 Duke Energy recently announced a $500,000 grant to help underscore the value of Upstate wetland environments by highlighting and protecting the natural wetlands in Greenville’s Unity Park. The project will provide school children and other park visitors the opportunity to learn about the native species and wildlife living in this unique and critical ecosystem in the middle of an urban environment, according to Duke Energy. The project will include the Duke Energy Outdoor Classroom as part of an ADA-accessible boardwalk providing new public access to these currently overlooked and unapproachable wetlands. Duke officials said its goal, once the project is completed, is for the area to serve as an outdoor classroom for educating the public about the important environmental contribution of wetlands and the need to preserve them.

We are excited to once again engage with a trusted partner like the city. Unity Park is one of those projects that has so much depth and impact that we had to be a part of it.” -Michael Callahan, South Carolina state president, Duke Energy

The wetlands area of Unity Park marks the ORIGINAL PATH of the REEDY RIVER before it was diverted in a 1933 Depression-era project “We are excited to once again engage with a trusted partner like the city,” said Michael Callahan, Duke Energy’s South Carolina state president. “Unity Park is one of those projects that has so much depth and impact that we had to be a part of it.” “We are grateful for Duke Energy Foundation’s participation in Unity Park and value its partnership on this transformative project,” said Greenville Mayor Knox White. The wetlands area of Unity Park along the northern perimeter of the 60-acre park marks the original path of the Reedy River before it was diverted by city engineers and the federal Works Progress Administration in a 1933 Depression-era project. Despite close proximity to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, these wetlands are largely hidden from view and inaccessible to the public. Improving the wetland areas in Unity Park is intended to create a healthier river system, improve habitat, mitigate flood risk and create a greater scenic and educational amenity for the community.

Points of Light, a global network promoting effective volunteerism, estimates the value of a volunteer’s time at $24.69 per hour. But local nonprofit leaders say the benefits of this service go beyond monetary value. Their organizations rely on dedicated volunteers to move their missions forward and act as ambassadors to the communities they serve.

Serving others is a great way to combat isolation. It's physically good for you–usually it makes you move and become actively engaged with people, and creates a heart of gratitude.” -Andrea Smith, executive director, Senior Action

“Volunteers truly make our mission possible,” said Tanya Yachaina, volunteer coordinator for Harvest Hope Food Bank. “Not only does the gift of volunteer time save our organization over a million dollars in staffing costs; volunteers also infuse essential energy into our work with their compassion, dedication and innovation.” Andrea Smith, executive director of Senior Action, said acts of service are one of the best ways to support the community while improving your own health and wellbeing. Her organization depends on volunteers to keep operating, and also promotes a culture of service among its members for its benefits to them. “We have so much data saying that being cut off socially is harmful to your health for

people of any age,” Smith said. “Serving others is a great way to combat isolation. It’s physically good for you — usually it makes you move and become actively engaged with people, and creates a heart of gratitude.” Younger people often share their gifts at Senior Action by teaching a class, she said. Family groups and teens looking for service hours can sign up to staff bingo night, manning the concession stand and greeting participants. Seniors can fill a range of meaningful roles by joining the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. The best way to connect is through their website, senioraction.org “There are tons of opportunities,” Smith said. “Nonprofits are hungry for experienced people to serve on their boards, to do filing and administrative tasks necessary to keep their organizations running. If you have the treasure of time, please find a way to help. You set out to help others, but you get back so much more than you give.“ Jeri Kleckley, director of donor and volunteer engagement for United Way of Greenville County, said besides the demonstrated health benefits and the “warm glow” effect of helping others, many people learn valuable skills through volunteer engagement. These advantages and the chance to build networks apply to groups as well. Corporate interest in volunteering is high among businesses of all sizes, she said, and can help firms enhance their corporate image and meet their corporate social-responsibility goals. “A key driver is the desire to attract and retain top talent,” Kleckley said. “Employees want to make a difference; volunteering allows them to do that while they strengthen teams and develop skills and leadership.”

When it comes to foster care and adoption, it really hits home for the Ingram family. Trey Ingram, of the Holliday Ingram Law Firm, primarily focuses on real estate law in South Carolina but is also working on adoption law. Ingram is the father of seven children, one boy and six girls. Of his children, two came through adoption and foster care. “One child came from private foster care placement, not through the Department of Social Services,” Ingram said. The family’s other adopted child, however, was adopted through DSS, so, Ingram said, “we have experience on both sides.” Ingram said there are three legal ways to adopt a child: domestically or internationally through an adoption agency; or through the state DSS system. “There are several hundred kids in the state right now who are what we call legally free for adoption,” he said. Ingram explained that the children are legally free because the parents’ rights were terminated. “They can be terminated for a multitude of reasons, such as neglect or abuse,” Ingram said. Essentially, when parents aren’t able to remedy their conditions, they become unfit to care for the child, according to Ingram. However, that isn’t always the case and Ingram wants to change the way parents who give up their children for adoption are viewed. “One thing that was done with the adoption law was that the parents who are placing their child into adoption have the right to make an adoption plan, even if the child is in DSS custody,” Ingram said. “However, the family chosen by the parents making the adoption plan have

Technology is simplifying the backyard experience

Whether it’s entertaining a large group by the pool or settling in for a quiet night in the spa, creating the perfect atmosphere in your backyard can be a tricky balancing act—until now. Genco Pools and Spas has been providing the best in luxury pools in the Upstate for years, and now they’ve partnered with Hayward® to simplify the entire backyard experience. Hayward®’s OmniLogic® Technology makes turning on lights, starting water features, changing radio stations, adjusting the ceiling fan and nearly anything electric in your backyard as easy as the press of a button. OmniLogic® is the only technology that brings all of this together in one package, allowing users to control their backyards from their phone, tablet or voice services. Ryan Morson, regional sales director at Hayward®, says OmniLogic® is changing the way people use their backyards and making it easier to create the right atmosphere for any occasion. “It allows people to push one button and make twenty different things happen at once,” Morson says. “OmniLogic® takes all of your equipment and makes them all work in harmony, seamlessly through one device.” Homeowners who have switched to OmniLogic® are overwhelmingly impressed by the cutting-edge technology. “People are always telling us they didn’t know this was possible and they didn’t know this technology existed,” says Morson.

Instead of turning on different backyard features one by one, OmniLogic® allows users to create “themes,” in which users are able to customize various combinations of their backyard experience for different events or occasions. With one voice command, you could turn on all of your pool lights, start the water features, and turn up the radio for a party. Another press of a button could turn on your hot tub and dim the lights for a relaxing evening. OmniLogic®, which was featured on Lifetime Channel’s “Designing Spaces,” also has automated services that can be customized to fit your daily needs. If you want the hot tub to start up at nine o’clock every night, you can. You can also make the lights automatically turn off at eleven o’clock or water features to run only on the weekends. The customization with this amount of technology is limitless. Not only does OmniLogic® make the backyard experience significantly more convenient, but it also keeps homeowners safer in their own pools. Instead of periodically checking your pool’s chemical levels, OmniLogic® checks the water quality continuously. “One of the biggest issues for pool owners is the pH level fluctuating too much,” Morson says. “If it’s out of range for too long, the pool equipment can get damaged.” However, this new technology alerts homeowners when the pH level is compromised and fixes the chemical make-up of the water on demand, ensuring that your pool equipment, friends and family are safe.

Adam’s Mobile Market connects farms to families n story by JESSICA MULLEN | photos PROVIDED

Adam Sturm started a mobile market to get quality food from restaurants and local farms to people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it outside of seasonal farmers markets. Sturm moved to Greenville in 2007 after finishing his culinary degree and worked in a variety of industry positions, including executive chef at The Cliffs at Keowee Falls and general manager at New York Butcher Shoppe. He left that world with the hope to help others: “It was a decision I made to step down from traditional culinary arts and get into a business of my own that had a better schedule and also did something for the community.” In January 2014, the dream was realized as Adam’s Mobile Market. Sturm describes his work with the food truck as a “mobile farmers market.” The business evolved from farm-fresh vegetables delivered on a food truck to include take-and-bake meals in late 2014. By April 2019, Sturm celebrated the opening of his 900-squarefoot headquarters in Travel-

ers Rest, at 104 S. Poinsett Highway. Sturm says that during its busiest times, the shop produces 200-300 meals a week. The mobile market practices a directto-consumer model, which differentiates it from food hubs like Swamp Rabbit Cafe or Hub City Market, where the farmers and customers both have to come to a market. Sturm says he delivers the food directly to the communities that need fresh food most. “Going into a food desert where you’re not received well can cause more damage than good,” Sturm says. “We’ve had some when it wasn’t the right time or location. We move on. We really don’t have a systematic way of looking at numbers and saying ‘this is the area where we need to be.’ We choose neighborhoods by conversations, people asking us to come there or by a business reaching out and inviting us to an event.” Sturm says he practices “Robin Hood economics,” which means that at some events he charges full price, while he charges reduced pricing in others, depending on perceived financial need. “We’re up front about it,” he says. “We tell them, and 90% of people are like, ‘that’s cool.’ If someone comes up, we’ll have a conversation. Our community is very understanding.” The market recently stopped accepting SNAP and EBT, but they honor the discounted Four years later, we’ve still pricing, or even give food watched it evolve to 60-80 away for free, depending on the situation. customers, depending on Sturm’s truck brings its market on wheels to the when we’re set up.

To see the evolution of healthy eating just by providing one environment with a healthy choice is pretty good.” Besides local produce, Sturm also provides educational information. He visits assisted-living homes on Thursdays and saves time for giving his “local food 101” talks to local businesses in the afternoons. The market also acts as an incubator for new farmers. Sturm uses his knowledge and experience to check up on them, as well as providing an outlet for their goods once harvested. Through his work at the market, Sturm supports nearly a dozen farmers in the Upstate, as well as small-business owners such as Leopard Forest Coffee, Blue Ridge Brinery, Naked Pasta and others who are represented at the market’s headquarters location. Sturm says his goals for the market’s future include an established headquarters and more food trucks. “One thing about our business is that it’s community-driven. Without their support, at the truck or at the market, we can’t continue. We try to gain traction every year and continue, but we don’t operate by a lot of outside help. We’re run by the community and the more support we get, the bigger things we can do.”

With its quaint downtown, local shops and eateries and hometown feel, Campobello is like a step back in time

Campobello, born from 'campa bella' meaning beautiful field in Italian story by KIMBERLY COLLIER

The gentle rolling hills of the Piedmont area create some of the most beautiful landscape views in the Upstate. Nestled right in the middle of the rolling hills and almost completely surrounded by orchards is a town named Campobello. Campobello is located in the northwestern part of Spartanburg County and though it does sit very close to, or even right in the middle of major Interstates and highways, its quaint feel and country roots have remained untouched by the roadways and even by time. Traveling through or to Campobello one will notice that it is only 3 miles from Interstate 26 (exit 5), U.S. Highway 176, U.S. Highway 357 and the scenic Highway 11 run through town at different points.

However, even with all the highways and interstates Campobello remains somehow a reminiscent step back into the past, with its older homes, quaint downtown, local shops and eateries. The "old hometown" feel and knowing your neighbor makes it a great place to find property. Campobello takes you back in time, where people knew each other by name, spoke to each other on the street, helped a neighbor who needed it and simply were more interconnected. Campobello itself is a small town with a reported population of less than 500 people. It got its start as a large plantation owned by Joseph Davis. One day, as a group of visitors were leaving the plantation, one of them turned to look back

at the view consisting of the farmland, the rolling hills and the vast expanse of land. He declared the sight "Campa bella" meaning "beautiful field". And, because it was such a fitting description of the area, Davis adopted the Italian expression as the name of his estate. Many years before the Civil War, Joseph Davis’ children Mary Davis Dean and John Blankston Davis operated the large family farming interests along the South Pacolet River. Part of this plantation forms a portion of present day Campobello. Dean, a young widow, would ride up to their plantation on horseback from Spartanburg where she resided with her daughter, Lula, to keep an eye on the plantation’s activities.

As time went on a room in the plantation home was designated as the area post office and after the Civil War this practice continued. The room became known as the U.S. Post Office for Campobello and would receive mail each week on Fridays. Upon its official incorporation into a municipality on February 9, 1882 the town was officially known as Campobello. The name change from Campa Bella was most likely due to the poor penmanship of a postal clerk. Campobello would grow, but the growth was slow. The 1860 Census reported a total of 122 residents and showed that 15 of the total 18 households were farmers by trade. At the end of the Civil War the town had only grown to include 201 residents and 21 households.

Nestled right in the middle of the rolling hills and almost completely surrounded by fruit tree orchards is a town named Campobello. During World War I, portions of Campobello were designated as a staging area for the Army and a tent city for the troops appeared. Recruits were housed in the tent city and traveled down Highway 11 for arms training in Gowensville, 4.5 miles away. The Town Hall and Police Department, located on Main Street, are housed in a building that was originally built in the 1940s as a doctor's office. In 1956 Campobello residents organized and funded a volunteer fire department, even raising enough money to purchase the town's first fire truck. The "fire department" was housed on Main Street as well and the home located across the street was one of the few to have telephone service, so where there was a fire call the owners would take the message, go outside and set off the fire bell that was located on their front porch. Now just a memory, the home that had the fire bell has been renovated and sold many times and all evidence of it once being the first line of communication to the fire department has disappeared through the years. Today, Campobello is still surrounded by apple and peach orchards and in the spring when the fruit trees bloom the rolling hills create views that are simply stunning. With the last census reporting a mere 502 people and the town having a total land area of only 0.9 square miles, there is no wonder why it is still a hidden jewel of the Upstate.

Did you know? The northwestern part of South Carolina and just over the line into North Carolina is home to many apple orchards, with some of the farms offering a u-pick style service. Apples can be found year-round in your local grocery store, but of course, they are best when picked fresh from the tree. With lots of growers nearby, it makes choosing fresh apples an easy option. From varieties like Ginger Golds that ripen as early as the end of July to some heirloom varieties like Arkansas Black that are not typically ready until mid to late October, the apple season in South Carolina is a long one.

Did you know? A peach tree cultivated under favorable conditions will set more fruit than it is capable of successfully carrying to maturity. Branches may break and the fruits typically have poor color and taste. To prevent limb breakage and ensure good fruit quality, excess fruits must be removed or thinned. Hand-thin the tree about four weeks after full bloom, spacing the peaches about 6 inches apart on the limb. Source: clemson.edu

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.

On a Sunday in early November, Upstate singer-guitaristsongwriter Charles Hedgepath spent a couple of hours at Smiley’s Acoustic Café in downtown Greenville helping out some fledgling musicians. He showed one man some scales on the guitar. He spent some time talking theory with another who was a little more advanced. And he listened to a song that one man brought along to share. It’s not necessarily unusual for Hedgepath to spend time giving music lessons; teaching guitar is part of how he makes a living as a musician. But these students were either military veterans who had been in combat, or family members of veterans. And they were using music as a therapeutic tool to deal with the horrors that they — or members of their families — had experienced.

There are studies that prove that music is a natural way to help heal PTSD.” -Charles Hedgepath, musician This was the second meeting of the Upstate chapter of Soldier Songs and Voices, an Austin, Texas-based nonprofit founded by singer-songwriter Dustin Welch. The organization provides free instruments and songwriting lessons to veterans as a form of post-conflict care. “There are studies that prove that music is a natural way to help heal PTSD,” Hedgepath says. “You can actually look at some of the scarring in the brain and see that songwriting and playing music can help rewire some of those areas.” Hedgepath says that the informal vibe is a little more comfortable than a typical therapy session. "Instead of sitting on a couch and feeling very clinical, they can go to a place and hang

out with friends and play guitar and learn a little bit about music,” he says. “There can be healing through that process.” Hedgepath started the Upstate chapter of Soldier Songs and Voices earlier this year with the help of Neil Sondov of Compass of Carolina, a nonprofit agency that provides compassionate direction to children, adults and families through counseling and education. Hedgepath says he was drawn to the idea because of his own family’s record of service. “Almost everybody in my family has served in every conflict up to Afghanistan,” he says. “And when I was in my senior year at Furman University, I studied this book called “Achilles In Vietnam.” It was about PTSD, and it compared the warfare in Homer’s stories to the messed-up stuff that went down in Vietnam. It just brought me into this world of knowing what some of my family members had been through. I just feel that it’s my duty to help in this way.” That drove Hedgepath to spend the first Sundays in October and November sitting with vets and their family members, trying to help them cope. But it’s not just about the music; Hedgepath says the conversations are just as important. “The other thing that's cool is watching the different vets share their experiences,” he says. “They’re from totally different wars and totally different circumstances, but I think it's great for them. And maybe they’ll start bands together and have something to do that's positive through music.” The next Soldier Songs and Voices gathering is 4-6 p.m. Dec. 1 at Smiley’s Acoustic Café. Hedgepath says it’s open to anyone, not just experienced musicians.

Cosmic Christmas: Robert Earl Keen’s one-of-a-kind holiday show returns to the Peace Center n story by VINCENT HARRIS | photo PROVIDED

ROBERT EARL KEEN’S COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS » MONDAY, DEC. 2 | 7:30PM » PEACE CENTER » $25-$45

MONDAY

PEACECENTER.ORG Robert Earl Keen has been making albums since 1984. He’s more than proven himself to be a first-rate songwriter in the roots-Americana mold alongside folks like Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark and John Hiatt. He’s amassed a catalog of incisive, witty and emotionally moving songs over 35 years, 11 studio albums and an endless string of shows. But no matter how many rough-hewn gems he writes, Keen is well aware that there’s one old song that his fans will always want to hear over all the others: It’s “Merry Christmas from the Family.” It’s one of the most politically incorrect (and funny) holiday songs of all time, kicking off with, “Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk,” and painting a vivid portrait of a clan of chain-smoking, boozing and brawling kinfolk who celebrate Christmas with bean dip, margaritas, Burl Ives tunes, Diet Sprite and Salem Lights. The song is 25 years old at this point, but it’s still the most popular one in Keen’s repertoire. And no matter what songs he wants to play live, his fans always clamor for that one “greatest hit.” So, a few years back, Keen decided that if he was going to have to serve up “Merry Christmas from the Family,” he was going to make himself happy while doing it. To that end, Keen created an ever-changing holiday-season tour that gives the people what they want and lets him have a little fun, too. “I would be at a show, playing my set, and I started to realize everyone was just waiting to hear ‘Merry Christmas from the Family,” Keen says. “Eventually, this turned into the need to do a Christmas tour. And that’s how it all began.” Each year, Keen and his band plan out a loosely themed show where they dress up in wacky costumes, open the show with “Merry Christmas from the Family,”

CYBER

and then launch into a series of covers and old favorites. This year, the theme is “Countdown to Christmas: Lunar Tunes & Looney Times.” Keen will bring that show to the Peace Center in Greenville on Monday, Dec. 2, and while he doesn’t want to reveal too much about what he and his band will be playing, he’s got an interesting word to describe it. “I like to keep the show as top secret as possible,” he says. “But just know, it’s going to be psychedelic.”

I like to keep the show as top secret as possible. But just know, it’s going to be psychedelic.” -Robert Earl Keen, musician He’s willing to reveal where the inspiration for this year’s show came from, and that it’ll be, pardon the pun, a blast. “Really it came to fruition on July 16, since that [was] the 50th anniversary of the launch for Apollo 11,” he says. "You know, my Christmas tour has always been more of a variety show with a killer band dressed up and going all out. You can expect great music and a great time. You shouldn’t expect one long Christmas carol. This is Christmas the way we know how to celebrate.” Ultimately, Keen says his holidays shows have been a great way to keep things fresh. “Every year requires a new theme, new set list and new costumes,” he says. “It really makes the whole thing come alive, and I always look forward to it.”

When Javy Pagan thinks of the holidays, he thinks of music. Pagan, marketing and development director for Centre Stage, is directing “A Holly Jolly Christmas,” a family-friendly variety show filled with sketch comedy, Christmas music and more. The theater is presenting the holiday-themed show in December.

To me, these are songs everyone knows but we haven't really done them in a live performance.” -Cindy Mixon, performer Pagan said he is inspired by the images, sounds, smells and memories attached to Christmas, and wanted to celebrate the holiday season as a whole, whether it be focused on Christmas, Hanukkah or just sharing the season with loved ones. “You have some comedy, touching family moments and really somber Christmas moments packaged into a Christmas concert-type show,” Pagan said. “For me it all goes back to a family unit. Whether it is a mom and dad with kids or just a close group of friends.” Music featured in the concert includes songs made famous by Bing Crosby, The Carpenters, Elton John, Stevie Wonder and others. “It is about two hours of really, really good Christmas music,” Pagan said. “The songs are inspired by what I remember hearing growing up during the holidays.”

CENTRESTAGE.ORG A performer in the play, Cindy Mixon, who also runs the Centre Stage box office, said the variety of the music in the play is unique. “To me, these are songs everyone knows but we haven’t really done them in a live performance,” she said. One of Pagan’s goals was to make sure the performance was uplifting and positive, especially for those who are away from family or have lost a family member during the holiday season. The performance, he said, is all about having fun and helping people remember the positive aspects of the holiday season. “People get very blue,” Pagan said. “When putting the show and team of actors together, I wanted to make sure that both the actors and the audience leave the performance feeling light.” Mixon said she feels Pagan achieved his goals. “The sketches in the play help us to take a moment to just laugh at ourselves,” she said. “We have all experienced the stress of the holidays — the gift not being quite right or decorations not up to mom’s expectations.”

Bon Secours Wellness Arena is a 3 minute drive from Willy Taco

WILLY TACO FEED & SEED 217 LAURENS ROAD, GREENVILLE The musical group Trans-Siberian Orchestra is about as close to a traditional orchestra as Willy Taco is an authentic taco shop. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Both are extremely entertaining in their own unique way, and the proximity of the restaurant to the performing venue can’t be beat. Willy Taco, or as I often refer to it, “the amusement park of taco shops,” fuses traditional Mexican flavors and ingredients with the Southern cooking the founding family, the Cribbs, are known for. With a newer menu out, it’s time to hit up the ol’ Feed & Seed location if you haven’t been in a while.

what we're SEEING TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA AT BON SECOURS WELLNESS ARENA In the music of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, heavy-metal volume, progressiverock-style concepts and holiday-themed songs somehow come together to create one of the most spectacular shows around, Christmas-related or otherwise. A TSO show isn’t just a band standing onstage playing music; it’s a full-scale, no-holds-barred experience, with elaborate stage sets, laser-light shows, fiery guitar solos and fake snow falling on the audience to create that wintertime ambience indoors. The band does annual tours that are typically based on one of their albums. The band’s live rendition of one of the best-selling Christmas albums of all time is sure to be an epic production.
