Governor McMaster’s Refugee Plan is Wrong By Melinda Menzer

Israel came to the United States as a young man, married, and started a family. Jacob remained in Europe, also married, and had a child. But in 1941, Jacob was murdered; he was identified as a Jew and shot in front of his house by German soldiers. What made the difference? Their papers. Israel’s documents listed his country of birth, Germany. Jacob, born just 10 miles across the border, had documents that listed Lithuania. At the time, immigration quotas issued by the U.S. government, which varied by country, were much higher for Germany than Lithuania. German nationals, including Israel, my grandfather, had a chance to start a new life in America. Countless others, like Jacob, my great-uncle, were left behind. From the 1920s to the 1960s, U.S. immigration policy was based on these national quotas, designed to favor certain people the government believed would become “good Americans.” The papers mattered, not the people. And the quotas were based on prejudices that seem ridiculous today. Northern and western Europeans, largely Protestants, were considered ethnically superior and were allowed in greater numbers. Immigrants from eastern and southern European countries, more likely to be Catholics or Jews, were severely limited. The U.S. refugee resettlement program, formally established in the 1980s, has historically stood in stark contrast. The federal government handpicks the refugees to resettle here, regardless of their nationality, religion, or ethnicity. The vetting process includes more than 20 steps, with the involvement of five different government agencies. It takes years. It serves to keep America safe while living up to our traditional American values of providing a haven for those escaping persecution. Some of our leaders seemingly want to return to the policies of the mid-20th century, barring refugees on the basis of national origin. Here in South Carolina, Gov. Henry McMaster has said that he does not want to resettle refugees from the six Muslim-majority countries listed as part of the Trump administration’s March 6 travel ban. McMaster wants to replace our current process with the kind of system – built on ignorance and

bigotry – that allowed my grandfather refuge while excluding his brother, merely on the basis of the countries of origin listed on their papers. In 2003, I visited Lithuania, going to the places where my family had lived and where they were murdered. I stood on the street in front of my great-uncle’s house – the place where he was shot. I stood in the forest in the place where my great-grandmother’s body probably lies, buried in a mass grave. I also visited museums and archives where I saw photographs of Jewish families in crowds outside of consulates, trying desperately to get visas into any country ahead of the Nazi invasion. Today we mourn the deaths of innocent people in the Holocaust. But we rarely discuss the Jewish refugee crisis of the 1930s and ’40s, or the role that U.S. immigration policy played in it. Now, in 2017, we are in the midst of the worst refugee crisis in recorded history. There are over 65 million forcibly displaced persons worldwide, 22.5 million refugees, over half of whom are children. But sadly, the U.S. seems to be ignoring the lessons of the past. We are shutting the gates, again confusing the victims of terror with the perpetrators. After coming to this country, my grandfather married, started a business, and had three sons. My uncle and

We are thankful for all that this country has given us, and we work to be engaged, active members of our communities. I only wish that my great-uncle could have had the same opportunity. I know from my own family’s experience that restricting refugees on the basis of nationality can lead to horrible consequences. We cannot make the mistakes of the past again. I ask Gov. McMaster and President Donald J. Trump to admit refugees from all nations, regardless of what papers they have, so that they can have the home here that my great-uncle was denied.

A special ed diagnosis shouldn’t predetermine a child’s path By William W. Brown

Imagine one morning you wake up with a severe toothache. You know you need the help of a dentist. Not just any dentist, but a really good dentist. The pain is terrible. You need to be seen immediately. There’s no time to waste. Somehow, you’re able to land a sameday appointment. The pain has gotten worse by the time you arrive, but you start to think everything is going to be okay because, judging by all the diplomas on the wall, this dentist is highly qualified. You believe you’re in good hands. You sit down and say, “Ahhh.” The dentist pokes around for about five minutes then looks at you and says, “Yup. It looks really bad in there. I’ll bet that really hurts.” You’ve seen that pain chart that goes from 1-10. You’re trying to figure out if you’re at a 9 or a 9.5. Then the dentist says, “Well, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been doing this for nearly 30 years, and I can tell for certain that you have a toothache. I’m really sorry you have to go through all that pain.” You ask, “What can be done about it?” “Nothing,” he says. “We don’t work miracles here. Sometimes life hands you lemons. Maybe you should put less sugar in your lemonade.” “I don’t understand,” you say. “Aren’t you going to at least try to fix it?” The dentist replies, “I diagnosed the problem. Doesn’t that make you feel better?” This story may seem silly, but consider the parallels as it relates to education. According to U.S. News and World Report, South Carolina is ranked 50th out of 50 states in education. That’s our toothache. When some experts are asked what can we do about education in our state, they say something to the effect of, “When students come from poverty, there’s not much anyone can do.” That’s the dentist telling you your toothache is real, but no, there’s nothing he or she can do about it. Last winter, I was on a panel with Dr. Roy Jones, head of the Call Me MISTER Program at Clemson University. He said to a group of high school students that if they

expected to attend Clemson, it’s important for them to take higher-level courses while they’re in high school. A ninth-grade girl in the audience stood up and explained to us that her school would not let her take algebra. She was confused about why she would not be able to take the necessary courses to be qualified for Clemson. Her plea was sad to hear. She had a toothache, metaphorically speaking, so she asked the experts for help. And experts at her school gave her a diagnosis, not a solution. It was clear to me that her path had been predetermined since her early years. More often than not, children get labeled as special ed students at the slightest sign of struggle in their academic lives. As a result, expectations are lowered, and their classes are meant to keep them busy, not challenge their intellects. Less than half of the students who are labeled special ed in South Carolina graduate from high school. The special ed label is imposed upon students early based on test scores. Test scores are a measure of where the child is at that point in time. The scores are a reflection of the child’s history, but too often the system ensures that those test scores become a prediction of the child’s future. Also important to note is that the special ed label is more frequently placed upon students from poor neighborhoods, as if a child’s zip code and their socioeconomic background are reasons why that child cannot achieve future academic success. Before we defend the status quo, we need to ask ourselves, “What would I do if my child received low test scores and a special ed diagnosis?” Chances are we would pull out all the stops to help our child improve and move into academically advanced classes. Let’s remember to thank and empower the experts who do more than diagnose, the true heroes of our educational system, the classroom teachers. William W. Brown is the founder and board chair of Legacy Early College.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

The short-term rental market continues to thrive in Greenville WORDS BY LEIGH SAVAGE Greenville has plenty of hotels available for vacationers and business travelers, but the area also has options for those trippers seeking a home away from home that is actually a home. Short-term rental sites like Airbnb.com and Homeaway.com offer visitors accommodations at a range of price points, providing everything from entire homes to small attic rooms. More than 300 accommodations are currently available in Greenville on Airbnb, with even more in the surrounding area. Homeaway, on the other hand, offers 44 results for Greenville lodging. Though Airbnb was founded in 2008, local governments are still considering how to handle issues like taxation and regulation for short-term rentals. Both the city and county of Greenville don’t collect taxes from these rentals, though the state gave local governments more power to enforce tax collection in 2014. In 2016, Airbnb said it would collect and distribute state sales and accommodations taxes and is looking into ways to help at county and city levels. Though city rules say these rentals should be considered either bed and breakfasts or inns and should get approval by the Board of Zoning Appeals, only a handful of operators have gotten approval. Jay Graham, city planning director, said the city is looking into ADUs, or accessory dwelling units, “and what we can do to improve the situation,” he said. “We don’t have anything in the works, but we’re sitting down and trying to figure out what we can do to improve things.” Meanwhile, Greenville County spokesman Bob Mihalic said the issue hasn’t been addressed at the county level. Thanks to these short-term rental sites, there is money to be made for homeowners renting out their homes. Here are a few examples of the amount you might be able to make.

What: Private room with attached bath in a townhome Where: One block from Main Street in Travelers Rest and two blocks from the Swamp Rabbit Trail Cost: $45/night

THE $ALARY GAP

Greenville City Council pay ranks among lowest for state’s bigger cities CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF

clandrum@communityjournals.com

When it comes to council salaries, there’s a wide range in what cities and counties in Greenville County and across the state pay. Greenville City Council members are paid $11,772.80 a year, the lowest among South Carolina cities with populations of more than 40,000 people, according to the Municipal Association of South Carolina 2017 Annual Compensation Report. Greenville County Council members, on the other hand, are the highest paid county council members in the state, according to the latest wage and salary report from the S.C. Association of Counties. Greenville County is the most populous county in the state. Greenville City Council members are talking about increasing their own salaries for the first time since 1993. “Twenty-four years without an increase is sad,” said Councilwoman Jil Littlejohn,

who brought up compensation during a City Council work session last week. “None of us do it for the money, but at the same time we do need to get a little more competitive.” Littlejohn said she’d like City Council pay to be on par with Rock Hill, a Charlotte, N.C., suburb that is comparable to Greenville in payroll and full-time employees. Rock Hill’s budget is considerably larger at $225.8 million, compared with Greenville’s $168.4 million. But some of Littlejohn’s compatriots balked at what would be a nearly 43 percent increase. If Greenville were to go to Rock Hill’s compensation level, the mayor would receive a 38 percent pay raise. Under state law, City Council pay increases become effective after the next general election in which at least two council members are elected. Three council seats are up for election in November. Two will be contested – an at-large seat now held by

Gaye Sprague and District 2. District 4 is also up, but Republican primary winner Wil Brasington has no Democratic opposition. Mayor Knox White said discussing salary increases is “always an awkward conversation,” because councils have to approve their own pay hikes. But he added that Greenville’s compensation is behind Columbia, Charleston, and North Charleston. “All are not just higher but substantially higher,” he said. Across the state, there is a wide range when it comes to city council and county council pay. When it comes to mayoral salaries, the difference can usually be attributed to a municipality’s form of government. Charleston, which has a strong mayor-weak council form of government in which the mayor is the chief executive officer in charge of daily operations, pays its mayor $182,700 annually. Greenville, on the other hand, pays its mayor $19,074. Greenville has a city man-

ager to take care of daily operations. It also depends on the size of the city. Greenville, as expected, pays its council and mayor the most of the county’s six municipalities. But Greenville is also the county’s largest city, with more than twice as many residents as the next largest city. City Councilman George Fletcher said he did not know what Council was paid when he ran in 2015. “I don’t think people do it for the money, but we don’t want it where people running for office are only the ones who can afford it,” he said. County Council Chairman Butch Kirven said a 1995 ordinance ties council salary increases to employee pay increases. Kirven said his district has 40,000 constituents. “A lot of counties in the state have less than that.” He said being on County Council is “pretty much a full-time job, especially chairman.” He did say County Council could review salaries, because “we don’t want to get too far in front.”

Rare leopard cubs make debut at Greenville Zoo A pair of Amur leopard cubs is now on exhibit at the Greenville Zoo. The male and female cubs were born earlier this year but had to spend the first few months of their lives in a private enclosure, according to Greenville Zoo administrator Jeff Bullock. “The cubs really just needed some time indoors to bond with their mother,” Bullock said. “They also had to build up enough strength and coordination to safely navigate some of the obstacles in their outdoor habitat.” The unnamed cubs, born on April 29, are the first offspring for Jade, the zoo’s 7-yearold female, and Nelkan, an 11-year-old male. Jade was transferred to the Greenville Zoo in 2011 from the Potawatomi Zoo in Indiana. Nelkan, however, was transferred from Germany last year to breed with Jade. The two were introduced in January. Bullock said the cubs are an important success for the Greenville Zoo’s conservation efforts and the Species Survival Plan, a program developed by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help ensure the survival of selected species, most of which are threatened or endangered. The Amur leopard is classified as a critically endangered species, with about 70 individuals remaining in the wild and just over 200 in zoos worldwide. Bullock said at least one of the cubs would likely be transferred to another zoo for breeding once they mature. “It’s always tough to see them go,” he said. “But it’s also an incredible opportunity to educate the public on ways to help protect the species.” The zoo plans to hold a naming contest

Downtown Greenville is a symbol of rebirth. Once a place nobody had a desire — or a reason — to be after dark with its decay and empty storefronts, it is now a shining example of what can happen when a community has vision, a plan, and the determination to see it through. But as development creeps from the city’s central business district outward into onceforgotten neighborhoods on downtown’s edge, the dynamics of those neighborhoods are changing and prompting discussion of gentrification and two Greenvilles — one for the haves and the other for the havenots. “It’s a complicated issue,” said Merl Code, a Greenville attorney who was the first African-American to serve as the chairman of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce and a key player in Greenville’s development vision. “There’s been conversation but very few solutions. Very few people are bringing up good ideas that have worked in other places.” At “The Ups and Downs of the Development Vision of Greenville Through the Years,” the first of two forums on gentrification hosted by the Warehouse Theatre, Code recalled how Greenville went from where it was in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s to what it is today. Then-Mayor Max Heller held a Wednesday afternoon visioning session at the old Ramada Inn on Church Street (now The Brios Condos) to get ideas of what people wanted in Greenville if money was not an object. They included tearing down the Camperdown Bridge and creating a park along the river and widening Main Street sidewalks. But the transformation of downtown Greenville did not happen easily, Code said. “I bet most of you don’t know that the Hyatt wasn’t doing well when it first started, but there were men who propped up the hotel, put up their own money to prop up a multibillion-dollar corporation because we couldn’t afford to have it fail,” Code said. Code said he was a member of the Greenville Local Development Corp., a nonprofit corporation formed in 1980 to further the economic development by promoting and assisting business growth, particularly small business within the city limits.

SC still ranked high in domestic violence Instances of and fatalities from domestic violence have plagued South Carolina for years, and according to a new study released from the Violence Policy Center (VPC), “When Men Murder Women: An Analysis of 2015 Homicide Data,” the problem continues to linger in the Palmetto State. Data from 2015, the latest year for which statistics are available, reveals that the homicide rate of women murdered by men in South Carolina is 1.83 per 100,000 women — fifth in the nation. The national rate in 2015 was 1.12 per 100,000. The number of female homicide victims in

South Carolina in 2015 was 46. The above statistics reflect the number of “homicides involving one female murder victim and one male offender,” according to a press release from the S.C. Coalition Against Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault. This is the sixth year in a row that South Carolina has ranked in the Top 5 states for women killed by men. “At Safe Harbor, we hope this statistic will mobilize systems throughout our state and local communities to work collaboratively and diligently to provide support for victims and their families and to hold perpetrators accountable,” Julie Meredith, the organization’s program director, told the Greenville Journal. Safe Harbor is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence in the Upstate. VPC has released their “When Men Murder Women” report annually for the past 20 years shortly before October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The study uses data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Supplementary Homicide Report. In South Carolina, 53 percent of homicides in which a weapon could be identified were committed using a gun. Thirteen females

Greenville founder of Duke’s Mayo subject of museum exhibit An exhibit at the Upcountry History Museum will honor the legacy of Eugenia Duke, the creator of Duke’s Mayonnaise and the founder of Duke Sandwich Company. “Eugenia Duke was a woman ahead of her time,” said Dana Thorpe, chief executive officer of Upcountry History Museum – Furman University. “Eugenia Duke: A Centennial Celebration” tells the story of how Duke, who moved to Greenville with her husband in 1910, launched one of the most popular brand names in the South. The exhibit is presented

by Duke Brands with contributions by Duke’s Mayonnaise and Southern Living magazine. Duke eventually split her businesses, selling the sandwich side to her bookkeeper and the mayonnaise spread to the C.F. Sauer Company, which continues to operate it today. “For 100 years, Duke’s Mayonnaise and Duke Sandwiches have been a staple of Southern life,” said Chris Collins, chief marketing officer of Duke Brands. The exhibit at Upcountry History Museum is open until Jan. 7, 2018. In addition to the museum exhibit, Duke is being honored in another way, too. The pedestrian bridge on the Reedy River behind the Peace Center will be named the Eugenia Duke Bridge after Duke Sandwich Productions Inc. pledged $75,000 for the repainting of the bridge and installation of new lighting elements. The $75,000 is coming from Duke and its friends and business partners. The Community Foundation of Greenville is managing the fund. A sign will be erected on the RiverPlace side of the bridge. City Council has approved the bridge naming rights. —Cindy Landrum

THE ACCIDENTAL ZOO

Hollywild’s founders recount the animal park’s history Words By Andrew Moore | Photos By Will Crooks


COMMUNITYJOURNALS.COM

Although Hollywild Animal Park first opened in 1973, its origins go back almost two decades, when founder David Meeks was growing up on his family farm in the hills of northern Spartanburg County. His parents, James and Daisy, raised Nubian goats and collected an array of indigenous animals, including raccoons, squirrels, bobcats, cougars, foxes, and other wild animals. The family’s backyard menagerie steadily grew, especially with the acquisition of a bison and other animals from Spartanburg’s Cleveland Park Zoo after it closed in 1954. When the Meekses relocated to Wellford in 1962, their neighbors would ask for tours of the family’s animal collection. The visitors were so persistent that the Meekses started charging an admission fee, hoping to discourage the many visitors. But it didn’t work. In 1970, the family applied for and received a license through the U.S. Department of Agriculture to display their animals to the public. They opened M&M Zoo several years later and started collecting more exotic animals, including lions, monkeys, and tigers. During this time, David, a graduate of Carson Newman College, continued to work as a teacher at Byrnes High School and then as a cost accountant for a local construction company. On the side, he worked to collect animals from zoos and even circuses. In 1985, David married his wife, Lucia, and purchased his parent’s share of M&M Zoo, including the house, animals, and land. The couple dissolved the business and opened their own zoo, naming it Hollywild for the animals’ involvement with cinema. For years, David Meeks had run an animal talent agency and used his zoological collection for advertising campaigns, brochures, films, art exhibits, and nativities. One of the park’s cougars, for instance, appeared in the 1992 film “The Last of the Mohicans.” And Chewy, an African lion, was used as a model for Disney animators for Scar from “The Lion King.”

COVER “People already love animals. There’s no doubt about that. But they love them even more if they know they starred beside Kevin Costner or Glenn Close,” David Meeks said. Hollywild grew exponentially as more and more people started hearing about its famous creatures. Before long, more than 100,000 people were frequenting the 17-acre park each year, pressuring the Meekses to expand. In 1990, the couple purchased an adjacent property, adding 70 acres to their park. The area was fenced in; free-roaming animals were introduced; and school buses were reconfigured to take the public on a guided tour that became known as the Outback Safari ride. The 30-minute bus ride allowed visitors to not only touch but also hand-feed various animals, including zebras, bison, donkeys, and emus. But the Meekses were oftentimes criticized for allowing the public to interact with animals. “The experience we were trying to create by allowing contact was successful yet somehow controversial. We knew there were zoos who frowned upon our approach. But it’s really what made our park unique,” David Meeks said. “The whole experience of going on a safari ride turned out to be a signature piece that sort of catapulted the zoo.” Although attendance continued to grow with the development of new experiences and an expanding animal collection, the needs for additional finances continued to be a constant source of pressure for the park, according to Lucia Meeks. “The revenues generated by admissions were never sufficient to keep the park financially solvent, so David continued working in the movie and commercial industry and pouring that income into the park,” she said. In 1999, the Meekses started brainstorming a succession plan for Hollywild as their three children decided to pursue other interests. The couple eventually decided to establish the park as a nonprofit organization. Over the years, the park continued to expand with the addition of an education center and animal hospital. The Meekses also turned their

When the Meekses relocated to Wellford in 1962, their neighbors would ask for tours of the family’s vast animal collection. The visitors were so persistent that the Meekses started charging an admission fee to discourage the many visitors. But it didn’t work.

As part of the Hollywild experience, Lucia and David Meeks reconfigured old school buses that took the public on guided tours known as Outback Safari rides. During the 30-minute ride, visitors could touch and hand-feed animals.

Hollywild launched a breeding program for Nubian ibex in 2002. The species, which is listed as vulnerable, is declining because they are hunted for their meat and for the horns on males.

focus toward conservation and started implementing breeding programs to boost the numbers of endangered species, including the Syrian brown bear, which has already been declared extinct in the wild. But Hollywild quickly became a target of animal welfare groups, like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, which repeatedly called for the park’s closure due to multiple violations against the Animal Welfare Act. Between September 2012 and July 2014, inspectors with the U.S. Department of Agriculture said they found animals held in unsafe enclosures, a repeated lack of veterinary care, and multiple other issues at Hollywild. In 2015, the park agreed to pay $19,000 in fines following a two-year investigation. “There will almost always be imperfections in a report, because the inspector comes out on a random day and basically writes down everything that he or she sees wrong. It only tells you what you need to improve,” David Meeks said. “They don’t write down everything else that you’re doing right.” Meeks added that Hollywild was never in any danger of losing its USDA license. In 2015, the Meekses retired from Hollywild, named a new executive director, and made plans to move out of the park and into a new home once the nonprofit reached its financial goals for the year. But those goals were never met. Hollywild took a financial hit in 2015, when its attendance decreased from 200,000 to 100,000 visitors, causing the park to fall $150,000 short of projected revenues. Park officials blamed the decrease on a barn fire that had killed 27 animals earlier in the year. On Jan. 9, 2015, a worker arrived at Hollywild to find smoke in a barn where some of the animals lived. A malfunctioning overhead light had sparked and caught a portion of the barn on fire, David Meeks said. The fire put itself out, he said, but not before burning insulation released a toxic smoke, killing the animals in their sleep. According to Meeks, the following animals were found dead: two capuchins, four chimpanzees, two baboons, eight lemurs, two mangabeys, a bear cub, an Af-

rican crowned crane, three tortoises, four wolf hybrid puppies, and one barn cat. Survivors included five tortoises, a wallaroo, two baboons, a dog, two wolf hybrid puppies, a ring-tailed lemur, and two bear cubs. Many park patrons and community members voiced sadness and disappointment about the loss of so many animals. PETA even called upon federal authorities to shut the park down and revoke its license. But the USDA conducted a full inspection after the fire and cleared the park after finding no compliancy issues. Last year, Hollywild launched a campaign to raise $250,000, saying the money was essential to remain open and fund basic operations. But the fundraiser failed, and as a result, the board dismissed the staff and closed the park to the public in March. Upon dismissal of the staff, the Meekses personally assumed responsibility for the park’s finances and hired their own staff to oversee the care of its wildlife collection, which now includes four lions, two tigers, and more than 300 other exotic animals. “The animals have been the beneficiaries of this shift, as there are zero distractions from providing for their well-being,” Lucia Meeks said. “Managing the public component of the park required that we delegate the care of the animals to others, so, by necessity, we constantly missed out on what ultimately has always brought us the greatest joy.” Lucia Meeks added that while the park’s future remains uncertain, it does plan to briefly open this winter for its 27th annual Holiday Safari Lights Benefit. The event, which was launched in 1990, allows visitors to drive through the open area of the park while it’s decorated with more than 300,000 lights. It also features a deer forest and nativity with live animals. A sneak preview of the event will be held on Nov. 10 and 11. It will then open nightly from Nov. 17 to Dec. 31. Hours will be 6-9 p.m. with extended hours on the weekends and holidays. Money raised during the event goes to care for the park’s animals throughout the year, according to Lucia Meeks.

ever let it be said that Mari Steinbach likes to take it easy. In addition to her demanding job as the director of the City of Greenville’s Parks and Recreation department, she enjoys getting her sweat on. A lot. When the Greenville Journal spoke with Steinbach, she was in Rotterdam, Netherlands, competing in a triathlon. It’s not as hard as we might think, though, she says, because it’s just what she calls a “sprint.” “It’s the shortest of them all,” she says. “It’s a 750-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike, and 5-kilometer run.” Sounds like a breeze, right? Steinbach has a similar attitude toward her training for the event, which is the grand final of the International Triathlon Union (ITU) Series. “We don’t train as far in distance as you might think,” she says. So let’s examine that not-as-hard-as-wethink training regimen for a moment. STEINBACH continued on PAGE 22

“I was always pushing to do different things, and things that were different from what others might be doing. I guess that explains why I tried out for and played women’s professional football when I was 39 years old.”

STEINBACH continued from PAGE 21

“I train about 12-14 hours per week, many times twice a day,” Steinbach says. “It’s convenient for me to get up early and swim in the mornings, which I do about three days per week. I swim around 2,000 yards each time. I always do a couple of days of some sort of weight training, in moderation, and always incorporate core strength and stretching.” And that’s not all. “I’ll run and ride both maybe three or four days per week,” she says. “Generally, my runs are 3 to 6 miles in length, and I’ll bike anywhere from 10 to 30 miles at a time. Some days are short hill climbs. Some days are fast power efforts over 30 miles, and others are longer days.” And remember, that’s the training for the “easier” triathlon. These twin passions for the outdoors and athletics have fueled Steinbach’s adventurous spirit all of her life, and it shows. She’s been Greenville’s parks and rec director since February, after similar stints in Minneapolis; Burlington, Vt.; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and Anchorage, Alaska, among other cities. “Growing up, we were a great camping family,” she says. “We were always venturing about in campers and motor homes. By the time I was 6, I’d been to every state and an incredible number of state and federal public lands. I was an outdoors kid, and I’ve never lost that sense of wonder and adventure that being outside brings.” As for athletics, it seemed like no matter where she and her family moved, she was involved in sports in some way. “I was always interested in playing in leagues, from soccer and volleyball to softball and flag football,” Steinbach says.

“And I found that I got increasingly better and highly competitive as I aged. I was always pushing to do different things, and things that were different from what others might be doing. I guess that explains why I tried out for and played women’s professional football when I was 39 years old.” Yes, you read that last part correctly. While living in Colorado, Steinbach tried out for the United Women’s Football League’s Grand Valley Vipers and won a spot on the team. “I was the fastest player on defense,” she says. Steinbach’s two passions collided back in 2004. “The parks and recreation department where I lived and worked put on its inaugural triathlon,” she says. “I signed up, because it seemed like a cool thing. I had no idea what I was doing other than that I was competent in swimming, biking, and running. I won first or second in my age group. It was an incredible blast, and I was hooked. I’ve been doing triathlons ever since.” Steinbach’s recent visit to Rotterdam was her second time representing the United States in the ITU sanctioning body’s championship series. In 2012, she competed in Auckland, New Zealand. And she observed definite differences in the two contests. “This is going to be a highly technical course in Rotterdam,” she told the Journal prior to the completion, which was held Sept. 14–17. “There are many turns, with several 180s included, over bridges and cobblestone and rail tracks. And the conditions have been oddly windy, with gusts over 20 mph, and cold driving rain. It should be fun.”

HOME See You in the Garden

with Kathy Slayter

Fall for Greens

The autumn garden is full of lettuce, kale, spinach, herbs, and more The first stirrings of fall are in the air, and the autumn equinox has come and gone. Fall for this “late middleaged” gardener means I have this irrepressible instinct to start thinning, chopping, dividing, and conquering. I’ve been busy trimming boxwoods, forsythia, Carolina jasmine vine; pulling up okra that has turned into giant spears; shaping shrubs that are swallowing the back porch; and chopping the camellias down to a manageable size. Mulch has been laid down. The grass has been seeded and fertilized.

And there’s still more to do. But in this whirl of activity, there is much to appreciate.

radishes, beets, and kale are seeded and sprouted, as are some garlic and onion bulbs. Collard starts have yet to arrive in the nursery, but I am saving them a spot.

The Spider Lily bulbs, a brilliant red coral color, have popped up out of nowhere all over the garden. Every Southern garden needs a collection of them, as they multiply rapidly and surprise you as to where they show up each year. A profusion of Ginger Lily in full fragrant bloom droops upon the ground, its 4- to 5-foot stem heavy with the bloom. My love affair with Ginger Lily started from a single root I bought at a master gardener plant sale about a decade ago. Now it is everywhere in my yard.

Monarch caterpillar on a Milkweed plant

A patch of sedum, in full bloom, was covered with bumblebees. The gardenia is in heavy bloom. Perennial garden mums, now for sale at local nurseries, re-bloom every fall in my backyard. I have a pair of yellow mums that my mother gave me over a decade ago. I always look forward to its friendly blooms in the fall. In the vegetable garden, my cover crop is sown over the upper garden patch, the asparagus patch trimmed, fertilized, and mulched. My annual herbs have been harvested, trimmed, and pinched back to be renewed with the cool weather. My perennial herbs, like mint, oregano, thyme, sage, tarragon, and rosemary, are fertilized and revitalized.

Spider Lily plant

I have devoted two of my 8-by-8 raised beds to lettuce and greens for the fall. Endive, lettuce, spinach, cilantro, fennel, mustard, baby bok choy, parsley, Swiss chard,

Lettuce is one of the easiest plants to grow in pots. If you have not gotten your seed in place yet, try your hand at a pot full of lettuce. Buy a couple six packs at the nursery, and put a pot near your back door in a sunny spot. Using potting soil, place your plants in the pot and lightly fertilize. Lettuce matures in less than 60 days, and you can trim it every couple of days for greens as the season chills.

Begin watching for spring bulbs in the nurseries now. Plant bulbs at the end of October when the soil starts to chill. Visit the Clemson University Extension website for more information on planting bulbs and details for all things about gardening in our area. As the light shifts and the length of the days shortens into darkness, much goes on in the garden. Soil temperature cools, and we prepare for the coming darkness. In the words of a favorite author, Margot Rochester, “No matter how old we are or how busy we are, our lives are enhanced by growing.” See you in the garden. Kathy Slayter is a Greenville Realtor and Clemson Certified Master Gardener who is passionate about growing, cooking, and eating her homegrown food. Contact her at kathyslayter@gmail.com.

DINE FOR A CAUSE WORDS BY ARIEL TURNER | PHOTOS BY WILL CROOKS

Mill Village Farms’ Sunday Supper features local chefs for the first time

Chef Alex George’s pork belly ramen dish is a massive hit at his Vilage of West Greenville restaurant, GB&D.

Now in its fourth year, Mill Village Farms’ Sunday Supper is getting a revamp, with a renewed focus on local chef talent and fall produce. The Oct. 15 five-course dinner with wine pairings will take place at Larkin’s Sawmill and feature chef Alex Castro from Larkin’s on the River, Alex George and his team from GB&D, and chef Teryi Youngblood, formally of Passerelle Bistro and 2016 South Carolina Chef Ambassador. The previous three dinners were held in June and brought in guest chefs from out of town. “Greenville is a food city,” says Kristina Murphy, vice president of catering and events for Larkin’s Catering & Events. “There are so many chefs. We wanted to keep it local.” In the style of the James Beard Sunday Suppers, last year’s event featured Food + Wine Rising Culinary 32 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 09.29.2017

Star chef Nate Whiting, of Charleston’s Ristorante Juliet and formerly with Tristan and 492. The supper brought in more than 130 guests who experienced five locally sourced courses, vintage wine pairings, cocktails, and live musical performances. The party raised more than $35,000 for Mill Village Farms, whose mission is to transform vacant properties into gardens to grow produce for communities that often have limited access to fresh and local foods. Additionally, the nonprofit works to empower youth with experiences in basic job skills, sustainable agriculture, and entrepreneurship. This year’s participating chefs are planning a true farm-to-fork experience, sourcing nearly all of the produce on the menu from Mill Village Farms and as much of the additional ingredients as possible

from local sources. Dinner will begin with hors d’oeuvres from all three chefs. Some of the dishes throughout the evening will be a collaboration, and others will be solo creations. Youngblood has been pickling the last of the summer produce – okra, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant – from the farm for use during a family-style cheese course. George, whose Village of West Greenville restaurant just celebrated its one-year anniversary, is planning a pork belly ramen dish, which has become one of his signature dishes. Dan Weidenbenner, executive director of Mill Community Ministries, which oversees the farm, says he specifically asked George to make a ramen dish because of the success of his Thursday noodle nights at GB&D. “It’s something we’re known for,”

George says. For the main course, Castro has planned an herb-encrusted beef dish. Youngblood, the pastry chef, is tackling dessert with a creation inspired by the season – a sweet potato torte with Bordeaux apples, butterscotch drizzle, and pecan streusel. Youngblood says she worked closely with Mill Village Farms when she was chef at Passerelle. In 2016, she helped mentor a team of students from the nonprofit who were growing microgreens for an entrepreneurship exercise. “The mission is so beautiful,” she says. Sunday Supper Oct. 15, 6–9 p.m. Larkin’s Sawmill, 22 Graves Drive $125 millvillagefarms.org

Help Me Score this Adoption Season Have you ever been to a tailgating party where everyone has a tail? We’ve been having a ball preparing for Adoption Season at Animal Care. The kittens have been practicing their purr cheers and the large dogs have tennis ball interceptions down to a science. The only thing we need is a few hundred adopters to bring us home for a touchdown! Yes, we have some lofty goals for the season. Getting every animal adopted isn’t going to be easy, but we know that with some team work from our community anything is possible. Forget those fantasy leagues. Why dream when you can adopt in real life? Adoptions are only $35 all the time at Animal Care.

The bio for singer-songwriter Andrew Combs refers to him as a “country-soul” singer, but neither part of the hyphen is quite correct. The “country” part might come from the occasional twang you hear in his high, emotion-soaked voice. And that sound certainly comes naturally, as Combs was born in Dallas and now resides in Nashville, Tenn. And the “soul” isn’t the gritty R&B you might associate with the word. It’s more about the raw intimacy of his performances, like the way, on his new album “Canyons of My Mind,” he can convey pain, ecstasy, confusion, and vulnerability through his voice. If anything, other than the occasional grimy guitar tone or warmly burbling horn section, Combs’ music is based more on the confessional delicacy of 1970s folk. Songs like the intricately arranged “Sleepwalker” or stripped-bare “Hazel” are quiet but confident, unafraid to be subtle. The album, Combs’ third, is more assured than anything he’s done before, and perhaps that’s because he had plenty to write about as he prepared to record it. “2016 was really a growing up year,” he says. “It was about stepping back and becoming comfortable in my own skin. As I was making the album, I got married, and my wife and I bought a house, and I just generally settled down a little bit more. I was looking at the world around me and

deciding what was important to me and what’s not.” It’s interesting that Combs’ new collection of songs came from such a personal place, because his lyrics are, in most cases, impressionistic and elliptical. Titles like “Dirty Rain” and “Rose-Colored Blues” and lines like “Plastic people stacked in towers / The sun will fill with ice and concrete” are more suggestive than specific. “Some of the songs are pretty personal, even if my language suggests something more universal,” he says. “Some of them, like ‘Better Way,’ were fictional short stories where I put myself in the place of someone else. But when it comes to the songs like ‘Blood Hunters,’ those you can definitely put in the universal category.” Perhaps the most surprising thing about “Canyons of My Mind” is the new skill Combs shows with his arrangements. String sections swell unexpectedly to take songs from small-scale to wide-screen; pedal-steel guitars weep in the background; and vocal harmonies wink and shimmer on the songs’ choruses. It’s like Combs has discovered a whole new palette for his music. “I think the majority of the songs I had a fairly concrete idea of what I wanted going into the studio,” he says. “With the last record [2015’s “All These Dreams”], I relied a lot on the band and the producers, but in between records I try to learn as much as I can. I became more involved with the production and arrangement of songs, which is something I leaned on just

to keep moving forward and not get bored with what I’m doing.” It’s also not the kind of music that one would expect to translate well to a festival stage, which is where Combs and his band are headed. He’s one of the headliners of the fall edition of the Albino Skunk Music Festival, the multi-genre three-day event hosted by Upstate contractor Glynn

“2016 was really a growing up year. It was about stepping back and becoming comfortable in my own skin. … I was looking at the world around me and deciding what was important to me and what’s not.” Zeigler on his Skunk Farm property in Greer. The festival runs Oct. 5-7 and will feature 17 other performers, including Alexa Rose, Balsam Range, Billy Strings, and Sarah Shook & The Disarmers. “It’s tough because I’ve always considered what I do is being subtle,” Combs says. “And it takes more than one listen to figure out what I’m going for. But my band and I all sing, and sometimes we even sing some of the string parts. We just try to do our best, and I think we put on a pretty damn good show.”

SPECIAL DELIVERY

Moody Black and his slam poetry team are hidden gems in Greenville’s arts scene VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR

vharris@communityjournals.com

“I’ve been waiting for this moment to tell you,” Moody Black says as he begins to deliver his poem “8 Letters,” staring directly into a camera. The Spartanburg spoken word poet hesitates ever so slightly, like a man building up his courage: “I’ve been rehearsing my lines like a poet preparing to perform. So here I am, presenting you with your favorite dish, candlelight bliss, as we exchange eye gazes and I’m gulping anxiety… so I can say those eight letters that transform into three words: I love you.” As Black speaks, he visibly moves from nervousness to being overwhelmed to glowing, his hands illustrating his words through the air. It’s a fantastic example of the difference between a written poem and a spoken one, performed like a scene in a play or a film. This is what Moody Black, aka Robert Mullins Jr., has been doing for a couple of decades now — standing on stages around the Upstate and around the country, delivering his words with passion and intelligence at open mics and poetry slams, baring his soul while perfecting a performance style. And the style is important. In the world of spoken-word performances, it’s not just about the words, it’s about how they’re delivered. It demands the skill of a writer and the timing of an actor, and Black, along with the Greenville slam team he coaches, Say What?!, have become masters of it. The team has made the semifinals for the last two years in the National Poetry Slam competition, which is typically made up of 70 to 80 teams of four to five poets. As an individual performer, Black was named the National Male Poet of the Year by the Gifted Artists Neo Soul & Poetry Awards (GANSPA). Black’s love of poetry began when he was a child, though he didn’t take to it right away. “My mom made my sister and I read poetry,” he says with a laugh. “She worked during the day and took college classes at night, and she would bring

home books. We’d have to read some of the poetry and literature greats like Maya Angelou and Langston Hughes, but there was this particular book my mom had called ‘This Time Called Life,’ by a poet named Walter Rinder. It really captivated me at 11 or 12 years old, because he was talking about being young and free, and every young person wants to be free.” As Black began to write his own poems, he also nurtured an interest in acting and began performing his poems at school or in church. Once he graduated college, he became a regular on the Upstate’s open-mic scene. “I discovered this slam hosted by my friend Kim Simms [founder of the nonprofit Wits End Poetry] at Coffee Underground,” he says. “I had one poem memorized, and I won the first round with it, even though at the time I didn’t know there were rounds. It was intriguing, because I’d had a theater background in high school, and when I figured out it was performance-based poetry, I realized I could put acting and what I wrote together.” Wits End promotes local spoken-word events and educates the public about poetry. By 2004, he was on his first slam team, representing the Upstate in the Southern Fried Poetry Slam, a prestigious regional competition. “I saw all these poets and finally felt like there was a place for me,” he says of that experience. “So I just started studying the crowd and getting better at writing and performing, and started attending national events, and in 2008, Kim turned the SayWhat?! team over to me to start coaching it, and I’ve been running it since.” Black, whose moniker comes from an ex-girlfriend who said he had mood swings, continues to host a weekly openmic night at Coffee Underground. He says that even with his team’s achievements, it’s been difficult for poetry and spoken-word performances to get the attention that other parts of Greenville’s arts scene have. “When I try to promote our events, a lot of people are like, ‘Poetry?’” he says.

Noam Pikelny is crying. While speaking about his friend, the late Jim Rollins, Pikelny’s been trying to keep his emotions in check. But the more he talks about Rollins’ knowledge, his kindness, and his tragic, senseless death in a car accident at age 54, the more the tears flow. “I’m sorry,” Pikelny says at one point. “I’m getting emotional thinking about him.” Pikelny has met a lot of people as the banjo player for the all-star bluegrass group The Punch Brothers, led by mandolin master and “Prairie Home Companion” host Chris Thile. But meeting Greenville’s Rollins, a banjo player and vocalist for the Upstate bluegrass group the West End String Band, is something that sticks out in his mind. “We met at this vintage banjo gathering that was happening during a festival. And he was just passionate about Gibson bluegrass banjos,” Pikelny recalls. “He was a pretty central figure in that world of vintage banjo aficionados, and as a 19-year-old kid, obsessed with banjo, I was hungry for Jim Rollins any opportunity to play those instruments or meet people who could share some knowledge. And that first time I met him, he was so generous with his knowledge and his instruments. He had two vintage banjos, and he let me play them, and he told me everything he knew about them, and he did it with this great sense of humor.” The two men forged such a strong friendship that Rollins, whose taste in bluegrass ran to Flatt & Scruggs and The Stanley Brothers, came to every Punch Brothers show he could, even if their progressive style wasn’t his cup of tea. “Anytime I played anywhere in the area,

whether it was East Tennessee or North Carolina or South Carolina, he would come to the show,” Pikelny says. “Some people who knew him would find this hard to believe, given his dedication to more traditional bluegrass, but he saw maybe 15 or 16 Punch Brothers shows over the last 10 years. He was there more than any friend or family I have. He was an incredible supporter.” For Pikelny, Rollins wasn’t just a kind, knowledgeable friend but also a model of

about, and he tried to introduce people to the music,” McDaniel says. “And people across the nation, anybody you could imagine, would call him, looking for information on a flathead banjo they needed to know about, and all they had to do was read off the serial number to him. He didn’t have to go back and look it up; he could tell them about it right off the top of his head. He was generous with his time to everybody, and he loved to talk and make people laugh. He was always smiling, and shaking hands with people. He was just a kind person.” But it’s when McDaniel talks about Rollins’ skill as a singer and player that he smiles the most. “He’d listen to banjo tunes in the car,” McDaniel says. “He’d ride for hours just studying banjo parts. And as far as singing goes, he had that real high tenor; he could blast that out. When he was feeling it, you didn’t need a mic on him. As far as the music goes, I think he’d want to be remembered as a lover of real bluegrass music.”

the strong relationships in the bluegrass community. “Jim brought so much joy to every festival, every concert, every hang he was ever part of,” he says. “He epitomized everything I think was special about the bluegrass community.” Charlie McDaniel, who stood alongside Rollins playing guitar as part of the West End String Band, is also full of emotion when he talks about his late friend, but he has a smile on his face, and laughs a lot, often referring to Rollins in the present tense. “He was like an ambassador for bluegrass. It’s not a form of music that everyone knows

Natasha Boyd Book Talk & Signing Natasha Boyd’s “The Indigo Girl” explores the captivating true story of a young girl who risks her own livelihood to ensure the security of her family’s plantations. Eliza Lucas is only 16 when she is left in charge of her family’s South Carolina plantations. When she discovers the worth of indigo dye, Eliza strikes a risky deal with a slave in order to learn the complex dye-making process. In return, she must teach the slaves to read. Through dangerous alliances, new friendships, and unrivaled ambition, Eliza lays the foundation for what will eventually become one of South Carolina’s biggest exports. Eliza’s story is often overlooked today, but she played an integral role in the rise of the indigo dye trade in the Southern United States. By producing “the lucrative indigo dye,” Eliza Lucas became “America’s first female entrepreneur,” Boyd says. Boyd will stop by Fiction Addiction to promote “The Indigo Girl” and discuss how South Carolina’s rich history helped inspire her new novel. She’ll also hold a Q&A session and book signing. —Sara Ellis Pearce

Gottrocks, 200 Eisenhower Drive 9 p.m. | $5 How good is Heather Gillis at slinging out bluesy Southern rock riffs and singing with gritty, soulful passion? Good enough that the late Butch Trucks, drummer for the Allman Brothers Band, recruited her to be part of his seven-piece juggernaut the Freight Train Band, who tore the house down at Gottrocks last year. “I picked up the guitar when I watched a documentary called ‘It Might Get Loud’ with Jimmy Page, Jack White, and The Edge,” Gillis says, “and they were talking about all this Delta blues music, and so I checked that out, too. And it led me down a path where I realized how powerful that music was. And I didn’t sing till I heard Etta James and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and they showed me how strong and powerful the female voice could be.” After Trucks’ tragic death last January, Gillis took some time off, but the event ultimately helped her become more focused. “It took me a while to get back on my feet, but when I did, I knew it was time to get going,” she says. “This was what he wanted me to do; he took me under his wing to teach me, and encouraged me to do my own music.” —Vincent Harris

SNST w/ Carpoolparty

CONCERT

OCT. 1

Radio Room, 110 Poinsett Highway 9 p.m. | $10

The sound that the Chicago band SNST (pronounced “sunset”) makes on their new album, “Turn Out the Lights,” is so full and layered that it’s difficult to believe that there are only two people in the group: Chris Broach and Steve Znavor. At least until you look at the credits. The two of them are jointly credited with guitar, bass, synthesizers, and drum programming, with Broach handling the vocals and Znavor playing live drums. The result is a sound that works an electronic dance music element into a propulsive rock foundation, recalling the late ’80s efforts of bands like The Cure. And it’s a fitting mix, because the two men share an interest in electronic music among their disparate influences. “Steve has more of a prog-rock background, like Rush and Pink Floyd, and he’s also a metal kid,” Broach says. “I come from a punk background; I was really into new wave, but where we both come together is in electronic music, and we were able to bring the other influences to that.” —Vincent Harris

CULTURE

5:30 PM – 8:00 PM TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLINE OR BY PHONE FEATURING

As much as people look to Bruce Springsteen as the paragon of intelligent, open-hearted American rock ‘n’ roll, one could probably make a case for another superstar with the same initials, Bob Seger, as the best chronicler of the American experience. After shooting to early fame in the late 1960s as the leader of the Bob Seger System, scoring a Top 20 hit with “Ramblin’, Gamblin’ Man,” Seger quickly faded from national view, retreating back to his hometown of Detroit and becoming a local superstar thanks to his grainy, heartfelt vocals, fantastic songwriting, and an absolute killer of a live show. It was that show that brought Seger back to prominence on the double-LP hit “Live Bullet.” With his career back on track, Seger then unleashed a string of some of the finest American rock songs ever written, songs like “Night Moves,” “Still the Same,” “Against the Wind,” “Mainstreet,” “Feel Like a Number,” “Like a Rock,” and many more. These were songs that combined hope, frustration, nostalgia, and heartbreak like few ever could, and they established Seger as one of the all-time greats in classic rock. And here’s a note: Don’t skip the opening act. Heart’s guitar-slinger Nancy Wilson will take the stage before Seger. —Vincent Harris
