How MedEx made a lasting impact on one ﬁrst-generation college student By Kelsey Williams
I was just another high school student from Pelzer with a dream of going to college. Like many other students at the time, I was a naive 16-year-old wondering if college was like the movies. But I had additional concerns. Being the first in one’s family to go to college comes with many challenges, and the goal of becoming a physician is another struggle altogether. This is my story of how a program called the Medical Experience Academy, more aﬀectionately known as MedEx, changed my life. It’s also a story of how MedEx champion Craig Brown, best known as the owner of the Greenville Drive, changed my life and the lives of hundreds of other students. Greenville Health System’s MedEx Academy helps identify and encourage high school and college students interested in pursuing a career in health care in jobs ranging from doctors and nurses to human resources specialists, medical coders, administrators, and other allied health workers. For those still in high school, MedEx is an educational explorative health careers program. For those in college, MedEx is a preparatory program providing experienc-
es, resources, and advisors for acceptance into medical school, graduate programs, and employment. My journey with MedEx started in summer 2010 in a meeting room in the Greenville Health System’s Cancer Institute. I was a member of MedEx’s inaugural class and the only student from Southside High School. The 12 of us spent every day together, learning as much as we could in a 40-hour workweek. Both clinical and nonclinical professionals – ranging from doctors and nurses to human resources experts and biomedical research specialists – presented to us the in’s and out’s of their various occupations and helped us understand health care as a vocation. We saw firsthand how health care works. Walking through the neonatal intensive care unit was my favorite experience, and a close second was being able to practice intubation on high-tech mannequins in the Greenville HealthCare Simulation Center. I progressed from a student to a mentor the following summer and helped to nurture some of my fellow colleagues through diﬀerent areas of the medical field. I also met countless future colleagues and gained invaluable mentors. After five years of working closely with MedEx, which took me from high school through college and now into med school, I decided that I wanted to work toward a future in primary care. I saw firsthand the diﬀerence a mentor can make and how empowering it is to have someone have faith in you. The point of sharing all of this is to acknowledge the generosity and empowerment of Craig Brown, a benefactor and long-time supporter of this special program. Mr. Brown received an on-field thank you two weeks ago when community members surprised him with $50,000 in student support for this innovative work pipeline he’s championed for nearly a decade. MedEx helped me realize my dream and purpose — and the generosity of Mr. Brown made that possible. I know my life would not be the same without MedEx. That teenager with a dream is now entering her third year of medical school at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. I have learned how to become a better leader and public servant and how to be the physician I’ve always dreamed of. The amazing mentorship, generosity, and family of MedEx has helped make this small-town girl’s dream a reality. So, thank you, Mr. Brown. Thank you for believing in MedEx. I am one of many who can say that your generosity has directly aﬀected my future for the better. Kelsey Williams is a third-year medical student at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville.

Reading Vision Correction is Here! Advanced Treatment for Dry Eye The inlay is a tiny porous ring placed in the cornea. It works like a camera aperture, returning reading vision to patients.
Dry Eye affects an estimated 25 million Americans and is the most common reason for a visit to an eye specialist. It is a complex disease involving the tear quantity, quality, inflammation, and eyelid oil or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). Causes include age, medications, health and environmental conditions, and contact lenses. It is more common in women than men. Dry Eye occurs when there are insufficient tears to provide adequate moisture or when the tear film over the eye is of poor quality. “If left untreated, dry eyes become uncomfortable with symptoms of scratchiness, Frustrated with your readers?

PROPERTY TAX ON A $200K HOME VS. RENTAL PROPERTY
$3,486 $3,022 $2,801 $2,545
Want to rent your house? Well, you’re going to have to pay up
WORDS BY RUDOLPH BELL EE
Few laws continue to ruffle feathers a decade after they took effect, but that’s the case with South Carolina’s Act 388. The tax-relief measure was adopted in 2006 and took effect in 2007. It was the General Assembly’s answer to complaints that residential property taxes were too high. At the time it was adopted, home values were soaring, especially beachfront property along South Carolina’s coast. The law’s main thrust was to remove the tax burden for public school operations from owner-occupied homes. To make up the revenue lost by that tax break, lawmakers added 1 percent to the state sales tax. Other classes of property — commercial property, industrial prop-
erty, and rental property — did not get the same tax break. One result has been a dramatic widening of the tax differential between owner-occupied homes and rental homes. Even before Act 388, taxes were higher for rental homes than for owner-occupied homes. The assessment ratio for rental homes was 6 percent compared with 4 percent for owner-occupied homes. That meant the tax bill on a rental home was 50 percent higher than the tax bill on an owner-occupied home of the same value in the same tax district. A decade into Act 388, the difference can be 300 percent to 400 percent. In Greenville County, for example, the yearly tax bill for an owner-occupied
Even before Act 388, taxes were higher for rental homes than for owner-occupied homes. The assessment ratio for rental homes was 6 percent compared with 4 percent for owner-occupied homes.

home valued at $200,000 is $915 (not counting municipal or special district taxes). By contrast, the yearly tax bill in Greenville County for a $200,000 rental home is $3,022. Act 388 increased the tax inequity between homeowners and renters “and over 10 years that wedge has gotten bigger and bigger,” said Rebecca Gunnlaugsson, a Columbia-based economist who is advising a special committee of the state House of Representatives studying tax reform. Critics of Act 388 say the different tax burdens for owner-occupied homes and rental homes hurt the poor. While some people choose to rent, they say, others rent because they can’t afford to buy. And while those people’s landlords are responsible for paying the higher taxes, the landlords simply pass the additional cost onto their tenants in the form of higher rents, critics say.
It’s not clear whether the legislative committee studying tax reform will try to address the inequity. The committee, created last year by House Speaker Jay Lucas, a Hartsville Republican, has met several times but so far has not recommended any legislation. Members, however, have kicked around ideas for addressing the inequity during public meetings. Among the questions they have posed: Could smaller rental properties – say those with four units or less – be taxed differently than large apartment complexes with hundreds of units each? The committee’s chairman, Rep. Tommy Pope, a York Republican, said the overall goal is to create a “lower, flatter, fairer” tax system. Asked if the committee is expected to recommend changes to Act 388, Pope said he does expect it to address property tax policy, and any true reform of property tax policy would likely have to take Act 388 into account.

NEWS A decade into Act 388, the difference
can be 300 percent to 400 percent.
“Does that mean we’re going to start taxing your home? I highly doubt that will be the case,” he said. Pope said he sees the different tax bills for owner-occupied homes and rental homes as a concern. “Anything that affects the fundamental fairness of our taxing system is a concern for that committee,” he said. Pope said the state might be able to improve its property tax policy if it begins generating new revenue by ending the
patchwork of sales tax exemptions. Rep. Chandra Dillard, a Greenville Democrat on the committee, said she believes the higher tax burden on rental homes is decreasing the supply of affordable housing by discouraging investors from renovating and renting out older homes. Still, Dillard said, revising tax policy can be tricky. “You start pulling a string, and other things start unraveling,” she said.

‘Homeless Triangle’ Salvation Army agrees to increase patrols, reduce community lunches to two days per week CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
When the Salvation Army requested a zoning change last year for a half-acre of its nearly 4-acre campus, it ignited opposition that revealed an underlying frustration and resentment among residents toward the nonprofits in Greenville’s “homeless triangle.” The rezoning was ultimately approved, and neighborhood residents and the Salvation Army and other nonprofits serving the homeless agreed to mediation in an eﬀort to resolve the issues that were uncovered. That mediation is complete, and the parties agreed on a list of action items, as well as longer-term ideas to reduce homelessness in Greenville, according to a final report by the Upstate Mediation Center. There are about 1,000 homeless in Greenville County, and three of the main service providers — the Salvation Army, Triune Mercy Center, and the Miracle Hill Rescue Mission — are located in that area of downtown, which is a magnet for people who are homeless, including those who are chronically so. “Pop-up” service providers come into the area to hand out food, distribute supplies, and conduct outdoor church services. Some follow a set schedule, and others are more spontaneous and unpredictable, the report said. Some residents expressed concern that service providers would expand their services resulting in more homeless in the area, as well as with nuisance-type behavior such as thefts and public urination. Some residents worried that crime in the area had risen, although law enforcement later said that wasn’t true. As a result of the mediation, the Salvation Army agreed to increase patrols and trash pickup at its campus on Rutherford Road and its Greenville Family Store, and to limit its community lunch feedings to two days per week. In addition, the Salvation Army agreed to not increase its number of beds beyond the current 143. Service providers also said they would try to include neighbors on their boards and they would participate in neighborhood organizations. The Greenville Homeless Alliance, a coalition of 40 stakeholders including nonprofits, government, churches, and health care providers, agreed to coordinate educational programs and events for neighbors in the area as well as continue to monitor the situation. Long-term solutions to homelessness include permanent sup-

Creating additional similar housing would require public-private partnerships, according to the report. In addition, the city needs more aﬀordable housing options, the report said. A consultant recently found there are 2,500 fewer aﬀordable housing units than needed for families who earn $20,000 or less annually. “Without sufficient quality, aﬀordable housing options, these households are either living in substandard housing or are severely cost-burdened, and in many cases will eventually be homeless,” the report said. The report identified a need for more public bathroom facilities and suggested the city and county could explore publicprivate partnerships with convenience stores. In addition, the report said authorities should consider addressing design issues that enable homelessness, such as walls that make it easy for people to hide and sleep.
There are about 1,000 homeless in Greenville County, and three of the main service providers — the Salvation Army, Triune Mercy Center, and the Miracle Hill Rescue Mission — are located in that area of downtown.

Duke Energy awards $75K to the Riley Institute Furman University’s Riley Institute has received a $75,000 grant from Duke Energy to expand ConnectionsSC, a program that aims to advance diversity leadership among education and law enforcement professionals across the state. The program brings educators and law enforcement together over the course of five months to discuss and study ways to Furman University’s Riley Institute lead in their increasingly diverse communities. Participants are grouped together by school district and develop action projects that benefit students and their communities. ConnectionsSC was launched in 2015 after nine people were shot and killed by a white supremacist during a Bible study session at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. In the wake of the shooting, Duke Energy donated $100,000 to the Riley Institute to promote diversity and civic engagement in South Carolina. “There are no quick solutions for the deep legacies of racism,” said Kodwo GharteyTagoe, Duke Energy’s South Carolina president. “We are continuing to invest in the long-term approach of the Riley Institute’s diversity leadership work because we expect that over time it will help drive systemic change in the state.” The program’s inaugural class graduated last year and launched several successful community initiatives. That includes Project H.O.M.E, which aims to provide housing to North Charleston students who become homeless while still in high school. According to a press release, the new funding will help add 31 additional educators and law enforcement officials in six school districts. This year’s participants began orientation on Aug. 22 in Columbia and will attend five-day long sessions through December. —Andrew Moore

SERVING THE GREATER GREENVILLE AREA
Council OKs old Berea Elementary sale for possible Legacy Early College Greenville County Council approved the sale of the old Berea Elementary School property to the nonprofit Campbell Young Leaders, a move that could allow Legacy Early College to demolish the old school and build a new middle school. The move ends a two-year fight by some residents to keep the building, which was built in 1939 by the Works Progress Administration and is located at the corner of Farrs Bridge and Sulphur Springs roads. Legacy Early College wants to construct a new school with a façade substantially the same as the old elementary school, Legacy founder and board chairman William Brown has said. Brown is the CEO of Campbell Young Leaders, a private foundation William Brown started by the late Bob Campbell, a retired vice president of Vulcan Materials and a former Clemson University trustee. Legacy gets part of its funding from CYL. The sale hit a snag earlier this summer, when the sale didn’t get the required number of yes votes for second reading. Last month, County Council voted to reconsider, and the sale for $400,000 was approved on Sept. 5. The sale was approved 8-2 with council members Xanthene Norris and Rick Roberts voting against. Legacy has more than 1,350 students in kindergarten through the 12th grade. It has two campuses on Greenville’s west side. The school now occupies the former Parker High School and a former elementary school that once housed the Fine Arts Center. Brown has said a second middle school is needed because Legacy is at capacity at that grade level. A group of Berea residents have fought since 2015 to save the old school after a Florida developer proposed rezoning the property and building a commercial development. — Cindy Landrum

Furman University has chosen John Milby to lead its campus police force. Milby, who joined the university’s police department in 2015, has served as acting police chief since May. He took over for Tom Saccenti, who stepped down earlier this year after being named police chief at the University of West Georgia. As chief, Milby oversees a department that currently employs 12 sworn officers and 10 administrators. He is ultimately responsible for the safety of about 2,700 students, 240 faculty members, and countless visitors. “John is familiar with the university and he understands the role the department John Milby must play in making Furman’s campus among the safest in the nation,” said Mary Lou Merkt, Furman’s vice president for finance and administration. “He also understands the importance of building relationships with both the students and the surrounding community. We welcome him in this new role.” According to a press release, Milby served 25 years as a member of the Douglas County Sheriﬀ ’s Office in Nevada before coming to Furman. He holds a master’s degree in security studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School. Milby also holds a Certificate of Criminal Justice Education from the FBI National Academy and a Class I Law Enforcement Officer Certification from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy. —Andrew Moore

Council OKs using streetlights to improve wireless service Streetlights could soon be used to improve cellphone service and wireless networks in downtown now that Greenville City Council has given final approval to ExteNet Systems Inc. to deploy up to 23 small cell wireless antennas on streetlights and other existing structures in the public right-of-way in the city. Sixteen of those will be in the central business district. ExteNet would replace existing streetlights that are similar in size and appearance with streetlights that are designed to house and conceal antennas and wireless equipment. Verizon Wireless will use the small cells. According to Eric Lovvorn, ExteNet’s external relations director, once the system is up and running, other wireless companies may be interested in co-locating on those poles. Without the small cells, the system would be overloaded in downtown within a year or two, he said. City officials have said most people will not notice the diﬀerence once the new streetlights are installed. The alternative to small-cell wireless antennas would be rooftop cell towers. The antennas are needed because unlimited data plans and the increase in video streaming are straining the networks of wireless companies. Telecommunications equipment and services company Ericsson has predicted that by 2022, monthly mobile data traffic per active smartphone will be 26 gigabytes; 90 percent will come from smartphones. Monthly mobile traffic is currently 6.9 gigabytes. S&P Global Market Intelligence estimated that between 100,000 and 150,000 small cells would be constructed by the end of 2018, and the number is expected to reach 455,000 by 2020 and nearly 800,000 by 2026. Under the nonexclusive franchise agreement, ExteNet will grant the city — at no charge — excess fiber optic capacity in its network that can be used for the city’s security cameras. ExteNet will pay the city rent for city-owned poles it uses. Duke Energy owns most of the streetlights slated for replacement. —Cindy Landrum 6th ANNUAL HENDERSON COUNTY

STEAM POWERED Upstate companies promote career paths for girls with new event
WORDS BY LEIGH SAVAGE
Hundreds of girls streamed toward the booths, clamoring for the chance to build with Legos, fly drones, and create with chemistry. Others learned about CAD programming and spun in circles as they experienced virtual reality. It’s exactly the scene Denna Mensch had in mind during the planning of Girls’ STEAM Night Out, held for the first time at Mauldin High School on Aug. 31. Mensch, vice president of technology solutions marketing at SYNNEX Corp., said the company’s leadership is dedicated to promoting STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) and the careers available in those fields. “We started thinking, ‘What can we do to create more awareness for parents, students, and schools?’” Mensch said. In addition to building a diverse and skilled workforce, “We want to invest in girls. We want them to think differently about the career choices they have and make it fun for them.” Fun was the name of the game at the event. One group crowded around a photo booth, taking pictures, and then crowded around a laptop to see the photo manipulated on the screen. Caroline Gantt, a seventh-grader at Mauldin Middle School, was checking out the drones and said she came to see “lots of cool technology.” With an interest in animation, she was drawn to the booths that blended art and technology, such as web design and 3-D printing. The event began to take shape when Cherie McCain, a manager at BMW, spoke with Mensch about STEAM support for girls. The Greenville Health System, Roper Mountain Science Center, and Mauldin High School’s Flash robotics team soon came on board and a committee was formed. With minimal advertising, turnout ex-
pectations were between 100 and 200 participants, but 330 had preregistered by the day of the event. In opening remarks before a packed auditorium, Rowan Brown, a junior at the Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, told the girls in the crowd how designing and communicating about Lego robotics led to an interest in fiction and poetry, and how the arts and sciences are linked.
Girls’ STEAM Night Out was a collaboration between SYNNEX Corp., BMW, the Greenville Health System, Roper Mountain Science Center, and Mauldin High’s robotics team.
“It is revolutionary for a woman to make a career out of art or science,” she said. “I fully expect each young woman in this room to try their hardest to be this generation’s revolutionaries.” Meghan Walters, a fifth-grader at Green Charter School, said she was inspired by her career options as she waited patiently
Games and activities at the event were intended to spark girls’ interest and curiosity in STEAM subjects.

for a chance to build a balloon-powered car using a water bottle. She had just checked out the virtual reality booth and the drones. “Those were really cool,” she said. Her mother, Tammy Walters, said Meghan had brought a flyer home from school and “was super excited to be here,” adding, “It’s nice that there’s a program like this that tells them that it’s okay to be whatever you want to be. The sky’s the limit for girls today.” The female focus fits with the mission of F2F, a community of women in technology careers at SYNNEX and its resellers and partners around the country. F2F — which stands for friend-to-friend, faceto-face, and female-to-female — works to unite women in the IT industry, offering networking, mentoring, philanthropy, and education. “It’s a more male-dominated field, so it’s a way to reach out to associates, vendor partners, and the reseller community and get to know each other,” Mensch said. McCain, a manager in BMW’s engineering department, also has a passion for inspiring young women, having worked with more than 1,500 girls in the past five years promoting automotive careers. “We invite middle school girls to come spend a day with us, tour, and learn,” she said. She was standing with her team at a booth full of cups, pens, candy, and other prizes. Girls clustered around the prize table, but were told they had to ask a question to earn a prize. “We want to get them talking,” McCain said. Several girls stood in silence for several seconds, considering possible questions, when one asked, “How do you make your engines?”

Set Free Alliance (SFA), a nonprofit organization based in Simpsonville that helps rescue children in India from slavery, will hold its third annual Keys to Freedom Gala on Sept. 28 at the TD Convention Center, with special guest speaker Praveen Chakravathy and featuring local artist Jared Emerson.

The theme of this year’s gala is REUNITED, which will focus on stories of families who were once torn apart, but have now been reunited through the work of Chakravathy and SFA. Last year, the gala raised more than $500,000. Table sponsorships are still available and individual tickets are $75. For more information, visit setfreealliance.org.

The event featured a panel conversation focused on the central role of Hispanic youth in the global competitiveness of the Upstate with leaders including Dr. Keith Miller, president of Greenville Technical College. Artwork created by area high school students was sold during the event to raise money for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) student scholarships. Dr. James P. Clements, president of Clemson University, served as keynote speaker. Planned panel participants included W. Carlos Phillips, president and CEO of the Greenville Chamber, and Fernando Fleites, senior vice president of human resources for St. Francis Bon Secours Health System. Anne Marie Stieritz, chief impact officer for Liberty Fellowship, served as panel moderator.

There’s nothing quite like a two-story family room—the high ceilings create a feeling of spaciousness that nothing else can replicate. So, with the Southport, we decided to start that openness right at the front door: the two-story foyer flows seamlessly into the two-story family room. The kitchen connects to the family room, but a few well-placed walls allow for a degree of privacy (and additional space for cabinets). The formal dining room also connects easily with the kitchen, simplifying large meals. We tucked the
downstairs guest suite into a corner of its own, along with a full bathroom. The master suite occupies nearly an entire wing of the house: with a sitting area, bedroom, dual closets, and a large, well-appointed bathroom. We also angled the entrance to the master suite with a small entry hallway (reducing the line of sight from the family room). Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms (each with walk-in closets), a bonus room, loft, and full bathroom. The upstairs loft overlooks the family room and makes a great spot for a wide variety of uses.

Coldwell Banker Caine Announces New Spartanburg Headquarters Coldwell Banker Caine is proud to announce the location of its future Spartanburg headquarters at 151 South Daniel Morgan Avenue. Renovation construction began on August 15 to the building that once housed Gilbert’s Shoes and most recently, Iron Yard. Renovations to the structure will yield 7,000 square feet of modern office space, equipped with innovative technology, industrial design notes, and
community engagement opportunities. To further partner with the Spartanburg community, the office will feature an art gallery modeled after the highly successful Main Street Gallery in downtown Greenville, where local artists will enjoy quarterly exhibitions and opening events. The outdoor space will include a grill, patio, and bocce court. Coldwell Banker Caine is collaborating with SHLTR Architects, Rescom Construction, and Amy Emery Interior Design to facilitate renovations, which are scheduled for completion at the end of 2017. continued on PAGE 25

THE JOY OF VEGETABLES
Meet the Asheville chef who thinks vegetables are the best part of the meal WORDS BY ANDREW MOORE | PHOTO BY PAUL MEHAFFEY
sheville, N.C.-based chef Justin Burdett would like you to consider, for a moment, vegetables. Our relationship with veggies remains ambivalent. Sure, we know they’re good for us and that we should eat at least five of them on a daily basis. But many of us still regard veggies as more of a chore than a joy when they appear on our plates. Luckily for our waistlines and cholesterol, Burdett plans to help us appreciate the culinary possibilities of veggies by preparing an organic, plant-based dinner at next week’s Euphoria food festival in downtown Greenville. Burdett, who is executive chef and owner of Local Provisions in Asheville, said the upcoming dinner is a natural fit for his style of cooking. “I was immediately interested when Euphoria contacted me,” he said. “I love steaks and burgers like everyone else, but my mind naturally gravitates to vegetables when I’m in the kitchen. I actually get more excited about preparing a radish than a country ham.” Ironically, Burdett got his first official industry job at 14 years old as a dishwasher at Glen’s BBQ in Snellville, Ga. After graduation, Burdett spent several years working his way up the ranks at various restaurants across the Southeast, including 5&10 in Athens, Ga., and Miller Union in Atlanta. He finally settled down in 2012 and took over Ruka’s Table in Highlands, N.C. Last year, Burdett opened Local Provisions. Burdett said the restaurant’s Southerninspired menu is dominated by a variety of locally sourced veggies. One small entrée, for instance, features pickled asparagus, boiled egg, roasted shallot vinaigrette, and radish spread across a variety of leafy greens. “I think more and more restaurants are putting vegetables on their menus, because there’s a growing demand for healthier food options. But I think too many chefs are still throwing
them on a plate and hoping for the best,” Burdett said. “We’re actually putting the focus on vegetables. Our protein dishes, for instance, are buried in them.” Burdett acknowledged that his veggie obsession is likely a result of Asheville’s rich farming culture. “There are so many farmers here,” he said. “And they grow a wide variety of things. I think they’re one of the biggest reasons I use so many veggies in the kitchen.” Over the years, Burdett has cultivated a hefty list of suppliers, including Common Ground Farm along the South Toe River and Ten Mile Farm in Old Fort, N.C. But one of his most prized purveyors is Evan Chender of The Culinary Gardener in Asheville. “He’s figured out how to grow stuff that’s essentially chef-driven, including sculpit, tetragonia, and other weird bitter greens,” said Burdett. “We actually don’t put the names on the menu. We just say, ‘Evan’s crazy greens.’” Burdett said he would likely incorporate lemon bergamot and other herbs from Chender in his upcoming Euphoria dinner. “I always bring some of his stuff with me when I travel. It’s like my own little bag of tricks, because people usually don’t know what it is.” When Burdett spoke with the Greenville Journal, he hadn’t yet finalized a menu for his plant-based dinner. But he did mention the possibility of serving an ancient grain salad with various root vegetables, including turnips and radishes. “I’ve been brainstorming some things, but the menu is entirely dependent on what my farmers can get me that week,” said Burdett. “They’re always dealing with the weather or some kind of animal that’s gotten into their crops. It’s really just one big waiting game.” The dinner, which will be held at The Loft at Soby’s at 7 p.m. on Sept. 23, will also feature organic wines and cocktails made with organic pressed juice by Xavier Bonnafous of Greenville’s Southern Pressed Juicery. Tickets cost $150.

A PERFECT MATCH LaRue Fine Chocolate’s Elizabeth McDaniel wants to help you pair chocolate and liqueur WORDS BY EMILY PIETRAS | PHOTO BY WILL CROOKS
efore Elizabeth McDaniel decided to follow her passion and open a smallbatch, artisanal chocolate business, she already had a wealth of experience in the food and beverage industry. For a decade, McDaniel worked as a fine wine sales representative and became a certified wine specialist. Originally, McDaniel made chocolates and confections with her niece as a hobby, giving away the treats to friends, family, and partners at various restaurants. When she received positive feedback from chefs and restaurateurs, she took it as a sign to consider pursuing the craft professionally. As a Christmas gift in 2013, McDaniel’s husband presented her with some chocolate courses to take. Her enjoyment of that experience solidified her decision to leave the wine business and strike out on her own. In fall 2014, McDaniel went to Vancouver for a one-week, intensive chocolatier master class. Shortly after, in early 2015, she opened LaRue Fine Chocolate. Today, the confections are sold at loca-
tions throughout Greenville, Easley, and Pickens. Two examples of McDaniel’s creations include The Earl (milk chocolate infused with Earl Grey tea and honey, dipped into dark chocolate and topped with candied lemon peel and lemon salt) and The Scheherazade (milk chocolate infused with orange and cardamom and rolled in pistachio dust). Those two are her personal favorites. McDaniel only uses fair-trade and organic chocolate, which she says was a top priority when beginning her business. “It was important to me, especially with fair-trade, that the farmers get a living wage and that the companies take care of them,” she says. She also uses local ingredients in her chocolates whenever possible, including Bee Well honey (Pickens), Happy Cow Creamery butter (Pelzer), Atlanta Fresh cream (Norcross, Ga.), and Nellie T’s peanut butter (Simpsonville). McDaniel’s background as a wine specialist helped provide a foundation for the creativity needed to come up with her complex, unique varieties of chocolates. “You have to do a lot of flavor profiles and
think about all the different components of wine, so it… just translates naturally to come up with flavors of my chocolates,” she says. That experience also makes McDaniel a perfect fit to lead next weekend’s Euphoria event, Sweet Dreams Are Made of These, an hour-long class on chocolate and liqueur pairings. McDaniel and a representative from Remy Martin, a French firm that produces cognac, plan to offer a white, milk, and dark chocolate to complement three liqueurs: Remy Martin 1738, Cointreau, and Cointreau Noir. Remy Martin 1738 is described as having flavors of “butterscotch and baked spices with hints of dark chocolate.” Cointreau and Cointreau Noir are both orange liqueurs, and the latter is distilled with cognac. When McDaniel spoke with the Greenville Journal, she hadn’t yet finalized which chocolates attendees will sample at the event, but she did say her first instinct was to pair the Cointreau Noir with The Kurtz (dark chocolate ganache enrobed in dark chocolate) or The Doo Yah (dark chocolate with toasted crushed almonds). Sweet dreams, indeed.

hef Karl Worley knows a thing or two about biscuits. The Nashville, Tenn.-based chef grew up in rural southern Appalachia, and he remembers his maternal grandmother making biscuits every day — drop biscuits on most days and yeast for special occasions. Worley even wooed his wife, Sarah, with his grandmother’s biscuits while the two were in culinary school in Denver. Today, Worley woos Music City diners at both of his Biscuit Love restaurants. So, what makes a perfect biscuit? That’s a question we asked the chef. For Worley, a perfect biscuit has three components — a good crust, a soft middle, and somebody with which to share it. “The key is love,” he said. “I know that sounds cliché.” Less important to Worley is what type of biscuit it is. “It’s all in what you grew up with. Biscuits are really nostalgic,” he said. “[Southern food and history writer] John Egerton said it best, that food memories are made at the dinner table, not at restaurants.” So, what is Worley’s secret for success? It’s a question common to anybody who has made a hard, horrible biscuit — and that includes most cooks. Worley himself failed when he first tried to make his grandmother’s biscuits. It starts with great ingredients. The flour should be made from soft winter wheat, he said. “If you really love your family,
in South Carolina, use flour from Anson Mills. Hands down, it’s the best flour I’ve ever used,” he said. “They use an old strain of wheat. It’s amazing. It makes a dramatic difference.” Buttermilk should be full fat, Worley said. “If you look at the label and see anything other than milk and culture, don’t buy it. Run.” Then comes technique. For the Family Reserve drop biscuits Worley will make at Euphoria, the key is to use really cold butter. “It gives you pockets of flavor,” he said. And don’t overwork the dough. “It’s one of those muscle memory things,” Worley said. That’s something that new cooks at Biscuit Love often don’t have, the chef said. “If we get a new employee, they overwork it and try to get every little piece of flour worked in. It takes about 10,000 biscuits before they get it right. Of course, they’re making 800 to 1,200 biscuits a night, so it only takes a couple of weeks.” A hot oven and a cast iron skillet help make a really good crust, Worley said. “I am of the school that believes cast iron is the only way to cook biscuits at home,” he said. Now, that you have all of Worley’s tips – and his recipe – it’s time to get flour on your hands and make some biscuits.
Euphoria Classroom: Art of the Biscuit When: Saturday, Sept. 23, 1–2 p.m Where: On the Roxx, 74 S. Main St. Tickets: $35
FAMILY RESERVE BISCUITS Ingredients 2 cups flour, low-protein, all-purpose 3 tbsp. sugar, granulated 2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. kosher salt 5 tbsp. butter, very cold 1 cup buttermilk, full fat 2/3 cup heavy cream For shaping 1½ cup flour (low-protein, all-purpose) 4 tbsp. butter, melted Method of Preparation 1.

Grate the butter into the dry ingredients and cut into dry ingredients. 5. Pour buttermilk and cream into dry ingredients and stir until just combined. It should resemble cottage cheese. 6. Use 4-ounce scoop or spoon to place a dollop of dough into a bowl with the remaining flour. 7. Sprinkle flour on top. Pick up dough ball and gently shake off excess flour. 8. Place into the skillet very close together. 9. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown and set. 10. Pour butter over biscuits as soon as they are out of the oven. Chef’s note: If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder.

Get ready to party, NOLA-style, at the Big Easy Bash Tariq Hanna, pastry chef and owner of Sucré in New Orleans, has been recognized in Food + Wine for his delicious éclaires.
WORDS BY ARIEL TURNER
awlins is coming to Euphoria in a big way this year at the inaugural Big Easy Bash on Sept. 23. Held at Trailblazer Park in Travelers Rest, 10 chefs, two food trucks, a dessert cart, NOLA-inspired cocktails, and a traditional New Orleans-style jazz outfit, Soda City Brass Band, will get the good times rolling. Euphoria Associate Director Jennifer Dennis says, in her opinion, this is the must-do event of the entire weekend. For starters, there’ll be a special party guest: a barrel of Spanish cider called a txotx (it’s pronounced “choch,” by the way). When someone yells, “Txotx,” everyone gathers around the barrel and takes turns trying to fill their cup with cider without any hitting the ground. Another draw is the addition of New Orleans pastry chef Tariq Hanna to the Euphoria lineup. Why is this exciting? In 2016, Hanna was honored by Food + Wine, which declared he made “one of the 10 best éclairs in the world.” ’Nuff said. Born and raised in Nigeria and educated in England, Hanna lived in Detroit for 20 years before moving to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. There he opened Sucré in 2007 with co-partner Joel Dondis. Hanna quickly became a part of the post-Katrina renaissance. At the Big Easy Bash, the pastry chef will be serving his All Things NOLA, a sweet buttery sablé tart with bananas Foster caramel, pecan bread pudding, and whipped meunière ganache. “I feel my dessert is a modern representation of the post-Katrina renaissance of New Orleans by paying homage to some of the most iconic

flavors that is NOLA,” Hanna says. “This is truly indicative of what my cooking style is, in the sense that I love interpreting classic Americana by making it everything you know but nothing you’ve ever had.” Today, Sucré boasts three storefronts, a Confection Studio, a growing online market, a wholesale business with nationwide distribution, and Salon, Sucré’s first restaurant, tearoom, and cocktail lounge. Salon opened in the French Quarter in spring 2015.
Other chefs joining the Bash include locals Heidi and Joe Trull (Grits & Groceries, Belton), Nick Graves (Restaurant 17, Travelers Rest), and Teryi Youngblood Musolf (formerly of Passerelle Bistro), among other regional notables.

When someone yells, “Txotx,” everyone gathers around the barrel and takes turns trying to ﬁll their cup with cider without any hitting the ground Hanna says his style of cooking is heavily influenced and inspired by both his Middle Eastern heritage and travels, but he’s also usually influenced by his environment – currently New Orleans – and culinary team. “I moved to New Orleans soon after Hurricane Katrina to open my shop because of the food culture,” he says. “The air in New Orleans itself has a flavor all its own – sometimes a bit funky – so the influence of flavor and local cuisine is every part of what I do.” He adds, “Although I don’t serve traditional New Orleans fare, I can’t help but be inspired by local ingredients, so there is always an underlying tone of local inspiration.”

YOUNG GUNS Kid cooks throw down with the help of some of America’s best chefs WORDS BY ARIEL TURNER
our Greenville County students will get the chance of a lifetime when they cook alongside Michelin-starred chefs in Euphoria’s 2017 Healthy Lunchtime Throwdown. The live cook-off will be held Sept. 24 during the family friendly Sunday Brunch: Fired Up! Michelin-starred chefs Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn, Michael Mina of Michael Mina, and Curtis Duffy of Grace will be assisting the young cooks and acting as their sous chefs. The winning recipe will be served in all Greenville County Schools during the 2017-18 school year. The finalists and their dishes are Wyatt
Hampton, 9, East North Street Academy, Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Bake; Jordan Sizemore, 17, Greer High School, Beef Chimichanga; Joshua Davis, 17, Southside High School, Asian Tuna Salad; and Nayha Hussain, 16, Riverside High School, Gobi Manchurian. “The Healthy Lunchtime Throwdown has become an annual event for Euphoria, and a fantastic way for us, as a food festival, to promote healthy eating among children,” says Euphoria festival director, Brianna Shaw, who works closely with partners Greenville County Schools and LiveWell Greenville. The Healthy Lunchtime Throwdown is a cooking competition open to all Greenville County Schools students between the ages of 8 and 17. Entrants were required to submit
healthy, delicious, and economical original recipes that adhere to the USDA’s MyPlate guidelines. MyPlate guidelines, which replaced the food pyramid, suggest proportions for each food group in a single meal, such as filling half of a child’s plate with vegetables and fruits; serving whole grains for at least half of the grains, like oatmeal and brown rice; and substituting fat-free or low-fat milk and water for sugary drinks. Based on these criteria, finalists were selected by a panel of local judges. The Euphoria contest is modeled after former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and Kids’ State Dinner, an annual event that promotes healthy eating and healthy lifestyles for children across the United States. “Greenville County Schools is dedicated to providing fresh, healthy meals each day during the school year to the district’s nearly
80,000 students,” says Joe Urban, director of Greenville County Schools Food and Nutrition Services. “Year after year, this competition provides an exciting opportunity to help children across our community understand the importance of balanced nutrition – not to mention the fact that cooking and eating healthy can be fun and rewarding,” Urban adds. Judges for the live cooking competition on the Euphoria Culinary Stage will include Cooking Light’s Hannah Klinger, Urban, LiveWell Greenville’s Sally Wills, and 2016 winner Fiona Baulo.

Nearly a century ago, the American public was fascinated by radium. Touted as a groundbreaking medical remedy, the radioactive element was believed to be a cure-all for ailments ranging from cancer to blindness and arthritis to asthma. The allure and glamour surrounding radium created a marketing frenzy, and the chemical was added in everyday products, such as lipstick and toothpaste. One of the most popular uses of radium was in a revolutionary self-luminescent paint applied to the dials of wristwatches and clocks, some of which were used by the United States military during World War I. In the late 1910s and early 1920s, the U.S. Radium Corporation, located in Orange, N.J., was a major producer of these trendy glow-in-the-dark watches. The company hired teenage girls and young women to paint dials by hand. To ensure accuracy and maximize time, the workers were instructed to “point” the brushes between their lips to keep the bristles sharp as they paint-
Those symptoms gradually became severe — and gruesome. Women lost teeth and sustained painful abscesses that wouldn’t heal. Their bones spontaneously fractured. Some needed their jaws to be removed due to necrosis. ed. The health risks associated with repeatedly ingesting trace amounts of radium were unknown to the workers and, for a time, their employers. As scientists and U.S. Radium Corp. management began to discover the potential dangers of radium, they instituted measures to limit their own exposure. The dial painters, however, weren’t afforded any of these protections. A few years later, they started to complain of minor ailments, like toothaches and sore limbs. Those symptoms gradually became severe — and gruesome. Women lost teeth and sustained painful abscesses that wouldn’t heal. Their bones spontaneously fractured. Some needed their jaws to be removed due to necrosis. Dozens of women died excruciating deaths, and it was all due to the effects of radium poisoning. In an effort to avoid liability for causing this occupational disease, U.S. Radium Corp. continued to lie and dispute findings that pointed to the hazards of radium. In 1927, after a two-year struggle, five of the workers that contracted radium poisoning, led by a woman named Grace Fryer, found a lawyer who was willing to take their case. Although they ended up settling out of court, the reality of radium poisoning could no longer be denied. Grace Fryer is the main character in the fictional historic play “Radium Girls,” which opens at Logos Theatre in Taylors on Friday. The play chronicles Grace’s legal battle against U.S. Radium Corp. and the emotional turmoil it causes for herself as well as her friends and family. “Radium Girls” will be a theater-inthe-round performance, meaning the audience will sit surrounding the stage
in close proximity to the actors. Co-director Nicole Stratton, who is also playing the lead role of Grace, says the staging gives the production an “intimate, cinematic feel” and enhances the “raw and personal” style of acting that the script requires. For Stratton and co-director Zac Johnson — who’s also playing the part of C.B. “Charlie” Lee, the vice president of U.S. Radium Corp. — a main technical challenge that accompanies performing in-the-round is how to handle scene changes. “Radium Girls” frequently changes settings, from an apartment to a factory to the outdoors, so the pair was tasked with figuring out how to change the set quickly and creatively on a smaller stage. In preparing to portray Grace, Stratton says she considered how her own life diverges from her character’s experience. Whereas Stratton is married — her husband, Noah, plays Grace’s boyfriend, Tom — and has a child, Grace is aware that neither of those life milestones is in her future as her illness progresses. Looking at Grace from that empathetic perspective “brings an overwhelming sense of sorrow,” Stratton says. But Grace’s character also conveys an inspiring strength amid adversity. “Even though her life is ending, she’s willing to make a difference for the future. She has a willingness to fight against all the odds,” Stratton says. And while there’s a clear distinction between right and wrong presented in the overarching narrative of “Radium Girls,” Johnson and Stratton stress the importance of presenting all the play’s characters in a nuanced manner. That includes the very people Grace is fighting against, such as Arthur Roeder, the president of U.S. Radium Corp.

LET THERE BE LUX Greenville Chorale begins rehearsing Dan Forrest’s blazingly bright new composition ARIEL TURNER | STAFF
Two visual inspirations for local composer Dan Forrest’s latest composition, “Lux: The Dawn From On High,” came from a summer trip to Europe. One was the Poulnabrone dolmen in western Ireland, a stone tomb that’s more than 5,000 years old. Forrest describes it as “a place of profound beauty and history.” The second was the French cathedral at Reims. “With its incredible use of light and stained glass, right when I was working on a piece about light — it was an utterly transcendent experience to behold it,” he says. “And I’d like to think that some of that feeling worked its way into my piece.” “Lux,” which is the Latin word for light, will premiere Oct. 28 with a performance
by the Greenville Chorale and Greenville Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Bingham Vick Jr. The chorale began rehearsing “Lux” on Sept. 4 with Forrest at the piano. The work was commissioned by longtime Greenville residents Sarah and Gordon Herring. The Greenville Chorale performed Forrest’s first major work, “Requiem for the Living,” in fall 2014. The Bob Jones University-educated Forrest says he was mulling ideas for the piece for more than a year, sketching possibilities for eight to nine months and writing for three to four months. “I’m still orchestrating right now,” he says. “Even after the premiere, there will be continued proofing and editing, and writing smaller chamber ensemble accompaniment versions for publication.” The piece, in standard four to eight vocal parts, consists of five movements. Texts
are drawn from liturgical Latin, ancient chant, Scripture, and modern secular poetry; they’re combined to form a narrative about dawn, specifically the metaphorical aspects of the sunrise and light. Musically, along with standard symphonic orchestration, the work features the vibraphone, a large metal xylophone, which, among other unique aspects, has an electric motor for vibrato. In this piece, it will be played with a stringed double bass bow, Forrest says. Vick says his challenge, now that he has the work in hand, is to recreate what he understands Forrest to be saying in the music. “He and I think much alike when it comes to the interpretation of written music,” Vick says. “Our previous work together has shown that my instincts and understanding as a conductor, and his intentions with the music, are very compatible. He trusts my decisions regarding phrasing, tempo, expression, and that is reassuring to me as the conductor.”

For Johnson, Arthur isn’t simply a cartoon villain. “He’s not caricatured. He’s balanced and three-dimensional. He’s a family man and idealistic,” he says. Despite the overwhelming evidence that points to U.S. Radium Corp.’s culpability, Arthur is in denial that the company is responsible for the women’s illnesses. Although audiences may condemn his willful ignorance, Johnson says Arthur represents a very human tendency: to establish beliefs and continue to hold onto them even if proven wrong. Christian Lamas, who plays Arthur, says that finding some empathy for his character is crucial to delivering a balanced portrayal. “It’s easy to judge, but what would I do if I had all of this to lose?” Lamas says, referring to how Arthur’s future hinges on the success of his company. But while Lamas can admire his character’s drive and business acumen, the
actor acknowledges that Arthur is ultimately “holding onto what he has a little too tightly.” “He has sort of a tunnel vision for success and is willing to hurt other people to get it,” Lamas adds. “He cared about success, but not the people.” Regardless of whether Arthur ultimately comes to regret his choices, his inaction shapes one of the play’s chief lessons. “If something is wrong, and we have a passion and desire to fight it, we’ve got to go out and fight it. No one’s going to fight our battles for us,” Lamas says.

“When you sit down to write five or six times in a row and nothing happens, you think, ‘Man, I hope I haven’t lost it.’ There’s certainly a voice in your head that’s like, ‘Oh no, the best is all behind me; I don’t have anything left to say.’”
WRITER’S BLOCK Stuck in a creative rut, Drew Holcomb gets an assist from his band — and crafts a new Tom Pettymeets-Laurel Canyon LP

Success, even in small measures, can be exhilarating and exhausting. Take the Memphis, Tenn., band Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, for example. Their 2015 album “Medicine” was their 10th release in 10 years, and in many ways their most cohesive. Faced with the departure of his wife, Ellie, from the band (both to raise their children and pursue a solo career), Holcomb dug deeper into songwriting than ever before, mixing a desperately emotional delivery with intricate folk-rock. In response, the band – guitarist Nathan Dugger, bassist Rich Brinsfield, and drummer Jonathan Womble – has an incredibly intuitive feel for Holcomb’s songs, staying in the background when his passionate singing is in the spotlight and surging upward with gritty power when the choruses hit. “Medicine” was a musical high point for Holcomb, and it also turned out to be his biggest commercial success. The independent album very nearly cracked the Top 40 on Billboard’s album charts, hit No. 6 on the Folk Charts, and got good reviews from tastemaking publications like Paste magazine. It also launched one of the longest tours the band had ever done. In the end, Holcomb returned home exhausted. “For the first time in my life, I was creatively spent,” Holcomb says. “I’d poured myself into ‘Medicine’ like never before, and it was a very personal record for me.”
So when Holcomb, who’d always written all The Neighbors’ material, began to write new songs for the all-important follow-up, he found himself coming up dry. “When you sit down to write five or six times in a row and nothing happens, you think, ‘Man, I hope I haven’t lost it,’” Holcomb says. “There’s certainly a voice in your head that’s like, ‘Oh no, the best is all behind me; I don’t have anything left to say.’” What Holcomb needed was an infusion of creativity, and he found it pretty close by. Desperate for inspiration, he invited his lead guitarist and bass player to co-write with him for the first time ever. “I needed to work with other people that I trusted to get me back into a creative headspace,” he says. The result was The Neighbors’ new album, “Souvenir,” which predictably expands the band’s sound further into rock than they’d ever been before, with more intricate arrangements as well. The album, which was largely recorded live in the studio, has a throwback kind of feel that recalls both the more intimate moments of Tom Petty circa “Wildflowers” and the autumnal glow of the Laurel Canyon singer/ songwriter albums of the 1970s. “The record reflects a broader musical backbone that Nathan and Rich brought to the table that I wouldn’t have had on my own,” Holcomb says. “I was certainly hoping it would be that way, and the songs would take on a new life. That’s really the hope with every record — that the songs
will grow and develop. That’s the fun of finding something new; it inspires you.” That joy was short-lived for Holcomb, because during the final stages of recording, he was suddenly struck with a severe case of spinal meningitis that hospitalized him for eight days and left him bedridden for weeks. After leaving the final mixing process to producer Ian Fitchuk and Brinsfield, Holcomb took time off to recover before beginning the tour for “Souvenir,” which will bring the band to the Peace Center’s TD Stage on Thursday. “I think I’ve come out of it being a lot less precious about the music,” Holcomb says. “I want to play by the rules less and write with more people, and be less uptight about the process and thinking there’s only one way to do this. I came out of it more excited about writing, recording, and performing music than I ever have before.”

Hoot & Holler w/ Mikey Collins Smiley’s Acoustic Café, 111 Augusta St. 6 p.m. | Free
If it sounds like the Asheville, N.C., duo Hoot & Holler (singer/guitarist Mark Kilianski and singer/fiddle player Amy Alvey) is doing a little more than just playing straight-up old-time acoustic music, it might be because of the strong pedigrees both musicians have. Kilianski and Alvey both have degrees from the Berklee College of Music, Kilianski in jazz composition and Alvey in violin performance. And that, along with some teenage influences, is why you can hear a galaxy of genres and dazzling solos within their music. “It’s a matter of being able to play with different textures,” Alvey says. “Mark’s background is more in rock ‘n’ roll. He was really into Zeppelin, and he was also taking jazz lessons before he got into bluegrass. So he’s got those chops.” Unlike some of the other bands in the old-time genre, the band’s most recent release, “Reasons to Run,” prioritizes having fun with the form over merely recreating it. “There’s two different camps in the traditional music realm,” Alvey says. “You’ve got the party, sloppy tunes side, which is really fun, and then there’s the other side, which is people listening to source recordings and mimicking the original recordings. We like a healthy mix of both.” —Vincent Harris

WVRM w/ Withered, Tar Hag & All Hell
Radio Room, 110 Poinsett Highway | 9 p.m. | $7
Greenville’s WVRM has been together for four years, regrouping from the ashes of a straight-ahead metal band into something rawer and more punk-rock oriented. Take their most recent release, 2016’s “Heartache,” for example. The album provides all the expected brutal riffs, knotted-up rhythms, and skyscraping vocals, but rather than stretch the songs into the expected seven-minute metal epics, the band gets in, cranks the amps, and gets out with no wasted time. In fact, six of the eight tracks on “Heartache” run less than three minutes. “We started it up to do something less metal than we were going for before, and add in that punk kind of feel,” says singer Ian Nix. “We always loved that old metal, but we were also into grindcore, crust punk, and other faster kind of genres. We wanted heavy, explosive songs but in that punk vein where they’re one or two minutes.” The band is currently recording a split release with another Upstate metal band, Waft, and Nix says they’re proud to be part of the Upstate’s resurgent metal scene. “When I was in high school, the scene was pretty big; there were death metal bands, a lot of hardcore, and thrash. Then it dropped off for a while, but the past few years it’s been coming back really hard.” —Vincent Harris

My Girl, My Whiskey & Me (album release show) Horizon Records, 2 W. Stone Ave. 7 p.m. | Free
Greenville’s My Girl, My Whiskey & Me has a fluid, multifaceted approach to their bluegrass-based sound. On their new album, “In the Ground,” you can hear influences from jazz to progressive rock throughout the 10 rootsyyet-experimental tracks. “We were very much inspired by a lot of different bands, from the Punch Brothers and Trampled by Turtles to Pink Floyd,” says singer and multi-instrumentalist George Beardsworth, who forms the nucleus of the group with singer, percussionist, and guitarist Kelly Colyer. “But I haven’t heard anyone who’s doing exactly what we’re doing. We wanted to take the kind of music we like and expand on it to see if we can make it new and interesting.” The band experiments with their lineup as well, playing shows as a duo, trio, quartet, or quintet, depending on the night. “I think each iteration of the band has something very unique about it,” Beardsworth says. “You can hear us play songs as a duo and then hear those songs in a completely different light when you have these other creative minds coming in.” —Vincent Harris TUE-TUE
