Precinct organization: the essence of our democracy By Kate Franch
In the 2016 election, we all saw the power the individual voter wields. For Democrats, the aftermath has fueled a surge of resistance in the form of demonstrating, phone calling, and postcard writing. Those activities are compelling ways for voters of any persuasion to express their preferences to elected officials at the local, state, and national level. But to really make a difference, we should remember that “all politics are local,” as legendary Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill famously said. That’s what precinct reorganization is all about. Precinct reorganization occurs every two years for each party, with Republicans organizing in the odd years, Democrats in the even years. This year, Greenville County Democrats will come together on Saturday, Jan. 27, to elect new precinct leadership that will help register, inform, and engage voters at the most personal level — their neighborhoods. Although it is the heart of the electoral process, many voters don’t understand how a precinct fits into the democratic process. • There are 151 precincts in Greenville County, and boundaries are the same for both parties. • Each precinct is a geographical district with a prescribed number of registered voters surrounding a polling place and represents the smallest political subdivision in the electoral system. • Each precinct can have a leadership team composed of a president, three vice presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, and an executive committee representative. Officers must be registered voters and residents of the precinct. • Executive committee reps are members of the county party executive committee and bring the issues from their precinct voters to county party leadership. Through this role, each precinct has a voice and vote in county party management and direction. This year, the Greenville County Democratic Party is embarking on a major effort to extend leadership in all precincts, and to improve the support and training of precinct leadership to organize, mobilize, and activate voters. The precinct model is in place throughout the country. In many cities, like Chicago, it represents the grass-roots level of a robust organizing machine. In Greenville County, we aren’t quite there yet, but we are building toward it. We believe that neighborhoods should be the starting point for conversations on issues that can bubble up and become part of the Democratic Party’s platform. Registered voters interested in participating in this process can attend one of the reorganization meetings from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Jan. 27. Because of the number of precincts, we will be spread out over 10 to 15 locations. If you are not sure which precinct you are in, check your voter registration card or go to http://

We invite every member of our community to attend the reorganization meeting and participate in the discussions and election of leadership. Candidates for precinct leadership can declare themselves ad hoc and will be elected by the members present. Each candidate will get a few minutes to present his credentials and goals. Precinct organization is the essence of our democracy: Issues bubbling up from neighborhood conversations, voters staying informed, and grass-roots leadership mobilizing to register voters and support candidates. It is about fulfilling our civic responsibilities to be an informed and active electorate. It is this civic involvement that will lead to decisions and outcomes that truly reflect what our community wants.

Time to Focus on School Choice in Greenville and Across America By Andrew R. Campanella
Later this month, schools, homeschool groups, organizations, and individuals in South Carolina and across America will work together to raise awareness about the importance of opportunity in K-12 education. National School Choice Week begins Jan. 21 and celebrates all types of schools and education environments for children. Nationwide, 32,240 events and activities – such as open houses, school fairs, and information sessions – are being planned, with an estimated attendance of 6.7 million people. In fact, 607 of those events and activities will be held in South Carolina, and 45 are in Greenville. National School Choice Week has been celebrated every year since 2011. And even with increased awareness, many families still have questions about school choice and how it can benefit them and their communities. The first thing to know is that school choice isn’t partisan or political. It isn’t about a specific set of policy goals either. Rather, it’s about parents making personal decisions for their children. School choice means empowering individual parents with the opportunity to search for, and find, the best education environments for their individual children – regardless of where they live or how much money they make. Finding the right school is important, because every child has unique talents, challenges, and needs. School choice isn’t about finding fault with any of the schooling options available. Instead, it recognizes that while one student might thrive at a neighborhood school, another student might do better somewhere else. Research shows that when parents actively choose schools and education environments for their children, students are more likely to succeed in school. They are also more likely to graduate from high school, get good jobs, and participate in their communities. School choice isn’t just theoretical. Right now, more parents in South Carolina and across America are actively choosing the education environments for their children than at any other time in history. National School Choice Week provides parents with an opportunity to evaluate the education options available for their children. If parents are interested in switching their child to a different school, or considering homeschooling, it helps to start looking into these options in the winter.
Helping Hands When You Need Them
Families in South Carolina can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling. Because the state offers a private school choice program, parents who choose private schools for their children may also be eligible for state-supported scholarships or tuition assistance for their children. Searching for a new school, or considering an alternative education environment, doesn’t have to be daunting. Parents can start by talking to their children and other parents, researching schools online, and visiting schools in person. A good place to start is the National School Choice Week website, www.schoolchoiceweek.com, where we provide more information about specific school choice options in the Palmetto State as well as listings of the tens of thousands of local and regional events happening this year. National School Choice Week is a time when the country comes together around the idea that every child can succeed when they find the right school fit. This January, parents have more options and opportunities than ever before to find that right fit. For individual communities and for our country, that is a good thing.
A nationally recognized advocate for children and families, Andrew R. Campanella serves as president of National School Choice Week, the world’s largest annual celebration of opportunity in education. He lives in Northwest Florida.
Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children, including traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

Donaldson AFB ranks No. 8 out of 61 S.C. military installations with toxic contamination; full remediation not expected until 2031. WORDS BY ANDREW MOORE
Photo by Bradley Bormuth/ Wikimedia Creative Commons
A new report from ProPublica, an independent nonprofit newsroom based in New York, shows that the former Donaldson Air Force Base in Greenville is one of six military bases statewide that pose a serious threat to the environment and human health. The report, which draws data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Defense’s Environmental Restoration Program, lists 61 current or former military installations in South Carolina that have been contaminated with toxins. Fifteen of those installations are listed as a low or medium risk to the environment and human health, while eight haven’t been evaluated. Thirty-two sites have a “response complete” designation, meaning they were fenced off or didn’t require a cleanup. Donaldson ranks No. 8 among South Carolina sites posing the greatest threat to safety, human health, and the environment, according to ProPublica. In fact, the former air force base has more “high-risk” contamination sites (nine) than any of the 11 installations listed in the Upstate. Three of those sites are considered “active,” which means the military is still conducting cleanup efforts.
Since 1986, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has tracked and mitigated pollution at former and current military installations according to the hazards of contaminants and where and how they might affect humans and the environment. The Savannah District of the Army Corps of Engineers oversees the evaluation and cleanup of contaminated sites at military installations across the Southeast, according to Billy Birdwell, senior public affairs specialist for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Donaldson operated as a military installation until it was purchased by the city and county of Greenville in1964. The former air force base has since been transformed into the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center (SCTAC), a 2,600-acre industrial park that is home to Lockheed Martin, Michelin, IBM, 3M, and various other companies. Birdwell, however, said the contaminated sites at Donaldson have been surveyed numerous times by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over the last 20 years and pose “zero threat” to nearby residents or workers at SCTAC.
01.19.2018 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 9
DIRTY SITES Six installations in South Carolina have been designated as high risk by the federal government, according to ProPublica. Those comprise:
• Beaufort Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort County • Conway Bomb and Gunnery Range in Horry County • DONALDSON AIR FORCE BASE IN GREENVILLE COUNTY • Fort Jackson in Richland County • Joint Base Charleston Weapons Station in North Charleston • Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Beaufort County
The federal government has poured $21.4 million into environmental monitoring and remediation efforts at Donaldson.
“I don’t think they’re doing anything that would cause them to come into contact with the contaminants,” he said. “They aren’t drinking water from the ground or throwing dirt around with heavy machinery. They’re working inside contained facilities.” Birdwell said the contamination at Donaldson stems from “small dump sites” used during World War II. “We didn’t have environmental science back then, so we just threw these materials into the ground and covered them with dirt.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has detected trace amounts of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive materials in the groundwater, soil, surface water, and sediment near the contaminated sites at Donaldson, according to ProPublica. That includes chromium, mercury, cadmium, and trichloroethylene, a carcinogenic cleaning agent that may affect the nervous system, liver, respiratory system, kidneys, blood, and more. According to ProPublica, both on-site workers and visitors at the South Carolina Technology and Aviation
Center “are potential receptors of contaminants in site soils.” The report also says residents of the area could be exposed to contaminants if wading in nearby streams or consuming groundwater. SCTAC president and CEO Jody Bryson said the city and county are aware of the contaminated sites, but the “cleanup of the former Donaldson military base continues to be the responsibility of the Army Corps of Engineers.” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is working with the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental and Control to evaluate and remediate any remaining “areas of concern” at Donaldson, according to Birdwell. The cleanup is expected to be completed by 2031, with longterm monitoring continuing into 2034. According to ProPublica, the federal government has already poured $21.4 million into the environmental monitoring and remediation efforts at Donaldson. The remaining work will cost an additional $13.9 million to complete.

WEATHER OR NOT?
Last week’s pre-emptive school closure for icy roads that didn’t happen infuriated some parents and brought to the forefront again the question of how the school district decides whether or not to close WORDS BY CINDY LANDRUM
Two days this winter — exactly one month apart — illustrate the challenges Greenville County Schools face when deciding whether to cancel classes, delay the start of school, or send students home early because of weather. Greenville County Schools canceled classes for Monday, Jan. 8, after a winter advisory issued the day before called for rain and warned of “sudden icing” and hazardous road conditions between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. None of that occurred, prompting a chorus of complaints from parents who had to scramble to find child care or missed a day of work because the kids were home. A month earlier, on Dec. 8, all the weather forecasts indicated rain that day would not turn to sleet and snow until 8 p.m., an hour and a half after the last student bus rider would have arrived home. But temperatures unexpectedly dropped early that afternoon; snow started falling, prompting the school district to dismiss school early. A bus supervisor and district-level administrator had to take one student who lived at the top of a mountain home in a district SUV. A handful of other students were taken to a fire station for their parents to pick up instead of their bus stops due to concerns about buses on those roads. While the winter weather can be unpredictable, the reaction when the school district gets it wrong is not. “Do we regret canceling school for Monday, with the benefit of hindsight, yes. With the information we had at the time and the level of the concern it presented to our staff and students, no,” said Beth Brotherton, spokesperson for Greenville County Schools. “If we could make every decision with the benefit of hindsight, we would never make a bad decision.”
MAKING THE CALL
Brotherton said there were two major reasons the school district decided to call off school for Jan. 8 on Sunday – an overnight or morning drive by the ICE (Inclement Conditions Evaluation) team would not have been helpful because conditions weren’t expected to worsen until after the buses had already started their routes, and to give working parents and single-parent families time to plan. “We did not have a clearer picture in the morning than we did in the evening,” she said. District officials were concerned that treacherous conditions could develop quickly while school buses, employees, and car-riders were on their way to school. “We made the decision to cancel, believing that waiting until the morning would not clarify our concerns.”
DO THEY STAY HOME DO THEY GO TO SCHOOL OR
Here’s what a day in the life of a school cancellation could look like. National Weather Service sends out alert of predicted inclement weather
4 a.m. ICE team swings into action; each member has a temperature gun to check road and bridges. Other team members begin logging in to monitor weather forecasts, temperatures, and power outages. Start making phone calls to meteorologists, local law enforcement, Highway Patrol, utility companies.
By 6 a.m. Information provided to superintendent, who must decide: Cancel, delay, or attend as normal. School is canceled! Information is pushed out via television stations, radio stations, news outlets, text messages, phone, and email.
6:15 a.m. Phone rings, parent wakes up, panics 6:20 a.m. - 7 a.m. Turns off kid alarm/emails boss/babysitter/logs onto social media in search of snow day playdates
Afternoon School district ICE TEAM begins reassessing next-day plans Superintendent reviews information to make next-day decision (cancel, delay, or normal schedule). Call goes out to notify parents.
School closings, delays, and early dismissals are also posted on the district’s INFOLine (864-355-3100), Greenville County School’s website, www.greenville.k12.sc.us, and social media. Parents can sign up for text alerts by texting “follow @gcsalerts” to 40404.
01.19.2018 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 11
The school district did not consider delaying the start of school on Tuesday, Jan. 9, Brotherton said. Temperatures were expected to remain above freezing overnight, and the security guards who patrol schools around the county throughout the night did not report any issues. Neither did the more than 400 bus drivers and bus supervisors who report to work between 4:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. The first alert from the National Weather Service about freezing temperatures and the first accident due to black ice was reported by the state Highway Patrol shortly before 7 a.m. The district had two options, Brotherton said. It could turn buses around and take children back home on icy roads, leaving other bus riders waiting outside for buses that wouldn’t come, or it could continue with drop-offs. District officials, who were in contact with bus drivers over their radios, decided to continue with pickups because the drivers reported no safety issues. Members of the ICE team were also dispatched to check conditions, and they eported no problems, either, Brotherton said. The district did encourage parents to use their best judgment about traveling to school, especially when it involved high-school-aged drivers. “We make decisions for the whole; parents make the best decisions for their own children,” she said.
In cases where winter weather is expected to move into Greenville County overnight, the district sends out its ICE team at 4 a.m. to assess conditions throughout the district and at the Georgia line, since most weather systems move in from the west-southwest, Brotherton said. Making the call the second and subsequent days of a winter event can be more difficult because of the size of the district. Spread out over 800 square miles, Greenville County Schools is the state’s most expansive district. Because of that, some weather events affect one area of the county — typically the northern third that includes Blue Ridge and Travelers Rest — more than the rest.

A snowstorm in 2016 caused the school district to alter its “all or nothing” approach to closing schools. Greenville County residents south of Interstate 85 had snow and light ice that melted away quickly, while those in Travelers Rest, Slater, Marietta, Tigerville, and Blue Ridge were still iced in five days later. The district decided to hold classes but give excused absences to students and teachers who didn’t feel safe traveling to 10 schools in its upper end. Buses did not run on icy roads. Brotherton said new technology available in the district’s bus system allowed it to alter or delay certain routes and inform parents well in advance. Because of the complexity and number of man-hours involved in employing a quadrant system, it is not something the district would employ during a one- or two-day event, she said.

The list also took into account year-over-year increases in positive TripAdvisor traveler ratings for accommodations, restaurants, and attractions, as well as increases in search and booking interest through TripAdvisor. The 10 cities on the list of U.S. destinations were Kapaa, Hawaii; Waco, Texas; Wilmington, N.C.; Bend, Ore.; Boulder, Colo.; Paso Robles, Calif.; Richmond, Va.; Greenville, S.C.; Omaha,
Neb.; and Lexington, Ky. The description of Greenville on TripAdvisor was as follows: “The charming Southern city boasts a thriving arts scene, hundreds of restaurants, shops and boutiques, popular annual festivals, numerous historic sites, and museums housing significant collections. Greenville also features a one-of-a-kind ‘floating’ suspension bridge and is set against the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains.” The rankings described each city’s average hotel price (Greenville’s is $144/ night), as well as examples of hotels and airfare to Greenville-Spartanburg Airport. —Sara Pearce

TCMU introduces Sensory Saturdays program The Children’s Museum of the Upstate (TCMU) will now be offering Sensory Saturdays, an event geared specifically toward children with special sensory needs, sensory processing differences, and other special needs. The event will be held on a Saturday each month, from 9 a.m. to noon. “It’s definitely been a big need and something we have been wanting to do for a while,” said Jessica Hayes, director of programming at TCMU. “We always try to be inclusive no matter what, but having a day to specifically target these sensoryfriendly activities is a huge thing for us.” TCMU creates its exhibits with all children in mind, but is especially looking forward to being able to designate a monthly date for children with special needs. Some of the adjustments that will be made at TCMU include dimmed lights throughout the museum, limited loud sounds in each exhibit, and designated
quiet spaces with symbols denoting their location on each floor. “One of the most important things is to prepare special-needs children ahead of time so that they know what to expect,” Hayes explains. “The children and their parents will be able to go on our website and see the social narrative we created as well as make their own schedule for the day.” TCMU staff has been participating in several training sessions with experts in the areas of special needs and sensorysensitive children, such as experts in adapting toys for all children, autism, hearing- and vision-impaired children, and more. TCMU looks forward to offering these special program days, and Hayes believes that it will fill a need in the community. Though all of TCMU’s exhibits are accessible for all children, Bib’s World, Off the Wall (the art area), and the Spark!Lab will all be undergoing specific adjustments for this particular day.

Beyond the Battlefield World War I shaped Greenville in countless ways, mobilizing its workforce, launching its transportation systems, and laying the foundation for its modern-day infrastructure. Historians and city officials are now coming together to commemorate Camp Sevier, and its role in that transformation 100 years later. WORDS BY ANDREW MOORE This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, a conflict that dragged nations from all across globe into four years of unprecedented bloodshed. Between the start of the war on July 28, 1914, and end of the war on Nov. 11, 1918, more than 18 million people were killed and 21 million wounded. The American diplomat George Kennan described the war as “the seminal catastrophe of this century.” However, the war did much more than cause a global massacre. It allowed millions of women to enter the workforce, featured the initial step of the United States as a world power, and helped to transform Greenville into the city it is today.
Building a camp
When the United States declared war on Germany in April 1917, Secretary of War Newton Baker ordered the construction of 32 training camps, according to local historian and documentary filmmaker Don Koonce. “Most of these cantonments or training camps were to be spread across the Southeast where moderate weather would provide more training days and shorter preparation time before sending the men overseas,” he said. Local business leaders sensed an economic opportunity and began lobbying for a camp soon after. They were successful. In July 1917, the U.S. Army appointed Greenville’s J.E. Sirrine & Co. and Gallivan Construction to build a 1,900-acre training camp near the base of Paris Mountain for the newly created 30th Infantry Division, which was composed of National Guard soldiers from South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee. The division was nicknamed the “Old Hickory” division in honor of U.S. president Andrew “Old Hickory” Jackson, who was born near the borders of the three states. Soldiers from the 1st South Carolina infantry arrived in Greenville soon after and began to construct the camp, according to Koonce. About 20,000 additional soldiers arrived in the following weeks, and by Aug. 31 the camp
was considered complete. It was named Camp Sevier in honor of John Sevier, a Revolutionary War hero and Tennessee’s first governor. The camp included divisional headquarters, drill grounds, YMCA facilities, stables, a chapel, a bakery, a post office, a library, more than a dozen warehouses, and at least four medical buildings. It was also equipped with electricity, running water, and telephone and telegraph lines. The camp, however, did not have barracks, according to Koonce. Soldiers instead lived in pyramidal tents, formed in rows along the camp’s dusty roads.
Training for battle
In September 1917, once all units had reported, soldiers began training in common infantry skills, trench digging, gas defense, and the use of the machine gun. Meanwhile, the division’s engineering regiment built rifle ranges and trenches, and demolished roads, bridges, dams, pontoon boats, and railroads to prepare for war. They also laid out artillery ranges not far from Wade Hampton Boulevard. The U.S. Army, however, was “overwhelmed and significantly behind in delivering supplies and equipment to the training camps,” according to Koonce. “A good number of men were without proper uniforms and personal equipment. Actual machine guns and artillery were not delivered to Camp Sevier until three months before they deployed to France. They trained with wooden replacements.” Greenville also experienced brutally cold weather during the months of November, December, and January. “This all but eliminated outdoor training for the three months,” according to Koonce. The soldiers, however, were anything but bored. The P&N Railway ran eight trains a day to downtown Greenville, where the soldiers were wholeheartedly welcomed by locals, according to Dr. Courtney Tollison Hartness, a professor of history at Furman University. In fact, the entire community mobilized to support
the camp and soldiers. Students from the Greenville Woman’s College knit sweaters and mittens to help the soldiers stay warm throughout the winter. Local churches welcomed soldiers to worship and provided reading rooms with stationary for them to write their loved ones. And when rats infested the camp’s warehouses, children gladly donated their cats.
Going to war
In April 1918, the 30th division was ordered to prepare for war. Every man received a physical and was outfitted with new equipment. On May 1, the division departed Camp Sevier for the ports in New Jersey and New York, according to Koonce. The first soldiers from the 30th division left for Europe in May 1918 and arrived in England, where they departed for the western front soon after. On arrival in France, the division, with the exception of one artillery brigade, was assigned to the American Second Corps and attached to the British Second Army at a training area near Calais. In June 1918, the division underwent extensive combat training under the British, and their equipment and firearms were exchanged for British-made weaponry, including the Lewis automatic machine gun. The division was then sent to the front lines in Belgium. By September, the Old Hickory division had served in the Ypres-Lys campaign and Somme offensive. It was one of two American divisions to successfully break through the Hindenburg Line (the German’s formidable defense barrier on the western front) during the Battle of St. Quentin Canal on Sept. 29, 1918 – an action that would eventually lead to the end of World War I. Twelve members of the division were awarded a Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest award for valor in combat. But the success came at a high price. The 30th division had, in three months, from July through October 1918, sustained more than 1,000 officers and men killed in action, with another 7,178 wound-

Modernizing a city
Camp Sevier housed and trained over 100,000 men before its closure in April 1919. While the training camp was only in operation for two years, it had a “huge impact” on Greenville’s economy and infrastructure, according to Tollison. Local companies not only received government contracts to build the camp but also provided services to soldiers once they arrived. The housing market also experienced a financial boom throughout the war as the families of soldiers relocated to Greenville. In 1917, the city used the incoming “war dollars” to purchase a new public hospital, formalize its operations, and significantly expand its facilities on Memminger Street and Arlington Avenue, according to Tollison. The city later purchased the local water company and established a public commission to oversee its operations. Greenville’s economy continued to thrive after the war as many non-native soldiers who trained at Camp Sevier returned, according to Tollison. That includes Henry McKoy, a native of Wilmington, N.C. who served with the U.S. Army 105th Engineers in France.
McKoy met his wife in Greenville while training at Camp Sevier and returned after the war to launch Morris & McKoy Construction, which built Furman University’s Sirrine Stadium and numerous other facilities across the Southeast. The geographic diversity introduced by Camp Sevier and its returning soldiers also sparked a renewed sense of patriotism among Greenville residents, according to Tollison. For years after the Civil War, Independence Day was seen in the South as a holiday for Northerners and African-Americans. But South Carolinians once more began in large numbers to celebrate the Fourth of July after World War 1.
Celebrating a legacy
As the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 draws near, Koonce has taken it upon himself to make sure that history is preserved and passed on. Koonce is working alongside the City of Greenville and Greenville County to launch a yearlong series of community celebrations to commemorate the historical significance of Camp Sevier and the men who went through basic training there. The series, also known as the Remember the Old Hickory Project, will include a special celebration during the
Greenville Scottish Games on May 26; a public dedication on Sept. 29; and a Veterans Day event on Nov. 11. Koonce and other event organizers plan to announce additional details later this year. “We want everyone to remember the tremendous contribution Greenville and Camp Sevier made to the war effort,” Koonce said. “The 100th anniversary is a great opportunity to raise awareness of that unique moment in history, and what it meant both locally and on the global stage.” Koonce added that the American Legion plans to participate in the celebration and distribute commemorative posters to area businesses. The Greenville Police Department and Greenville County Sheriff’s Office also plan to display “remembrance poppy” pins and vehicle decals throughout the year. The flower has been used since 1915 to commemorate military personnel who have died in war. “I cannot think of a better way to honor the people of the Old Hickory Division who served our country so heroically a hundred years ago,” said Greenville Mayor Knox White. “Even as we continue to look forward, the city is always cognizant of our roots and the amazing contributions that people in this area have made to the world.”

St. Joseph’s Catholic School was established 25 years ago to fill a need for a Catholic high school in Greenville. Now, the school is starting a unique sixth-grade academy CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
School transitions are tough. High schools have long used freshman academies to help ninth graders move successfully from eighth grade — where they were the oldest students in the school and knew their way around — to ninth grade
where classes are tougher, responsibility is greater, and the stakes are higher. Freshman academies segregate freshmen from the rest of the school for most of the day, use a team-teaching approach, and offer more guidance and support. Beginning next fall, St. Joseph’s Catholic School will tackle the transition between elementary and middle school by

A 2017 groundbreaking ceremony kicked off construction of a new, three-story building that connects St. Joseph’s academic buildings with its gymnasium. Construction is expected to be completed by the fall of 2018. Pictured second from left is Dr. Joseph Moon, who donated $1 million for the construction project.
starting a sixth-grade academy. Some of the pressures that originally drove schools to start freshmen academies have moved to younger ages in our culture at large, and the sixth-grade academy is St. Joseph’s response, said Steven Jones, the school’s academic dean. “It’s really driven by our sense that some sixth-grade students are under pretty significant pressure, not just at St. Joe’s but everywhere. Academics are getting harder, and there’s social media as well,” he said. “We wanted to create an environment where our students could be more focused on their schooling, both what happens in the classroom and the general socialization.” Headmaster Keith Kiser said the school has known for a while that it wanted to help students make the transition. But the school did not have a space that could accommodate six sixth-grade classrooms and have common space big enough to hold all students in that grade. That will change with the completion of a building that links the school’s existing
high school and gymnasium. “We want an environment where kids feel they are able to take a risk, learn, and fail a little,” said Elizabeth Duncan, a sixth-grade teacher. “We want to create a place where students feel it’s OK to make a mistake, not get it right.” A Foundations class taught by Duncan helps sixth-graders with the nonacademic part of the transition from elementary school to middle school — how to use a locker, how to organize for a school day so they don’t have to carry all of their books, note-taking, and goal-setting. “They’re learning to be better students,” Duncan said. The sixth-grade academy also will allow teachers to decide to go off the school’s bell schedule if they determine that students are struggling with concepts or to bring in guest speakers, said Jean Crosby, a sixth-grade math teacher. Team building will be an important part of the academy, she said. “The sixth-grade academy is a mag-
nification of all the things we know are working,” Jones said. “St. Joe’s is a highperforming school, but we also provide a high level of support for students to meet those high expectations.” Kiser said St. Joseph’s officials hope the academy will distinguish the school in a crowded marketplace.
RESPONDING TO NEEDS The sixth-grade academy is not the first time St. Joseph’s Catholic School has responded to the educational needs of students in Greenville. When St. Joseph’s opened in 1993, it was the realization of a 40-year dream many in Greenville’s Catholic community thought would never happen. Many credit the late Margaret Ann Moon, one of the nine original lay founders of the school who served as its founding board chair from the year it opened until 2012. In a video made in 2012 before the school started its 20th year of operation, Moon said she knelt at her bedside one night

8,248 Lives Saved There are a LOT of animals in Greenville County. As the only open admissions shelter in the county, Animal Care sees dozens of stray, injured and unwanted animals walk through their doors every single day. Two years ago, they began their mission to build a NO KILL community and the results are astounding. In 2017, more than 8,000 animals found their forever homes. Thanks to spay/neuter programs, 19% fewer animals needed shelter and 9% more lives were saved than in 2016. That was possible because adopters, volunteers, staff and donors stepped up to the plate and took action. This year they’re going to save even more lives, but they need your help!

when she was 35 years old and asked God what he wanted from her. “A Catholic high school. I heard it in my ear, and I heard it in my heart,” Moon, who died in 2014, said in the video. Moon and the rest of the founders — Louis Beck, Mary Cotter, Janelle Malone, Barbara McGrath, John McGrath, Nancy McGrath, Tom McPartland, and Bradley Van Name — took a portion of a single $800 donation and set out on a massive mailing campaign to let people know that, after years of planning, the school was finally going to open. When the school opened in a modest house leased to the school by St. Michael’s Lutheran Church on Augusta Road, it had 13 students. Even then, school officials knew they needed more space.

school moved into a 16,000-square-foot building on East Washington Street. Seven students graduated in its first commencement in May 1997. Seven months later, the board bought its current campus, the former site of Amoco/Phillips Research and Development, near the intersection of Interstate 85 and Laurens Road. In 2000, Moon and Bishop Robert J. Baker signed an agreement in which the Diocese of Charleston approved the school, considered by many the most important event in the school’s history. Now, the school has 680 students from sixth through 12th grade. Kiser said St. Joseph’s is needed today
as much as ever. About 70 percent of its students are Catholic, and the Catholic population of Greenville and the Upstate is growing, he said. Graduates of the school — the oldest of which are not yet 40 years old — are making big contributions in all walks of life, he said. “It’s all about the graduates. The young men and women coming out of the school are doing amazing things. Margaret Ann Moon’s vision was that our graduates were destined to change the world,” Kiser said. “The work we’re doing is not just college preparatory, but work preparatory and mission preparatory. Our graduates are using their talents to make lives better.”
For parents interested in learning more about the sixth-grade academy, St. Joseph’s Catholic School will hold a kickoff night on Jan. 23 from 7-8 p.m.

Hubbell Lighting donates $25K to Make-A-Wish
Women’s March Anniversary rally to be held Jan. 20
The charitable section of Greenville-based Hubbell Lighting and Columbia-based Hubbell Power Systems, The Harvey Hubbell Foundation, chose Make-A-Wish South Carolina as a beneficiary. Garth Warner, vice president of human resources at Hubbell Lighting, and Kevin Potts, vice president of finance at Hubbell Power Systems, visited Make-A-Wish South Carolina to present this generous gift. Potts explained, “The magic of Make-A-Wish is though they are granting the wish of a single deserving child, they are impacting so many more, from the bolstered confidence of family and friends to the heartwarming accomplishment felt by the community of volunteers and wish granters. Hundreds of times a year Make-A-Wish South Carolina delivers on a prescription of hope, joy, and inspiration for the children, families, and communities they serve. Hubbell is honored to be able to be a part of that team.” With this donation, Make-A-Wish will be able to grant approximately three and a half additional wishes to children in the state battling life-threatening medical conditions.
Upstate Coalition for Equality will host a Women’s March Anniversary rally on Saturday, Jan. 20, at noon at Falls Park on the Reedy River. This event is in support of the rallies taking place across the country to launch the collective 2018 Women’s March agenda, Power to the Polls. The event will kick off a new voter registration campaign and hopes to harness the community’s “collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values.” Donations of feminine hygiene products in support of the Homeless Period Project will be collected at the event and can be dropped off at receptacles at the Falls Park entrances.
Muslim men and Methodist men volunteer at the Harvest Hope Food Bank On Jan. 6, a group of Muslim men from Greenville’s Islamic Center teamed up with a group of Methodist men from Travelers Rest United Methodist Church to volunteer at Harvest Hope Food Bank. The combined group of approximately 40 men worked together to package up food boxes that Harvest Hope distributes to families in need throughout the Greenville area. The men explained that this was a great way to start the year off and an incredible way to have two different religious organizations working together in order to benefit the greater good of the community. Harvest Hope Food Bank was founded in 1981 and feeds hungry individuals across 20 counties of South Carolina. Last year, Harvest Hope distributed over 27.5 million meals and fed approximately 48,000 people a week.

See You in the Garden
with Kathy Slayter
It’s time to build raised beds for the spring
The name January comes from the Latin term Januarius. Named after Janus, the god of beginnings, gates, and doorways, January has always symbolized new beginnings. As I walk through my garden each day, I imagine what I want to bring forth in my garden, in my life, in my future this year. In my brief jaunts around the yard with the dog, I am surprised to see the tips of my “blue bonnets” popping up in the front where they sleep with a southern exposure. Tiny grape hyacinth bulbs are testing out the temperatures as well. I want to be better this year at keeping my garden a bit more tidy, but still allowing, even encouraging, the wildness I enjoy. Seed catalogs fill my mailbox, and I enjoy sitting with them like good friends planning my seed orders and what I want to grow. Many gardening conferences and local garden tours are coming up. The Master Gardener’s Symposium held in February is sold out; however, our local SCOOL — South Carolina Organization for Organic Living — is holding their 2018 S.C. Organic Growing Conference, Cultivate, in Charleston on March 24. The group is planning more individual educational classes here in Greenville this year. More information can be found at www.scorganicliving.com. Rebecca McKinney,
executive director of SCOOL, director of the sustainable agriculture program at Greenville Technical College, and sustainability specialist at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital is involved in this conference.
Square has soil test kits available. Then when your seeds arrive from whatever source you have selected them from, you will be ready.
If you have been dreaming of some raised beds in your yard and fresh homegrown tomatoes, now is the time to built your beds. Don’t wait until spring; there are too many other things to do in the spring. Gather your materials and simply begin. There are many suggestions on how to build these beds online, but my personal experience of 30-plus years gardening with raised beds suggests you make them no wider than 5 feet and no deeper than 1 foot. Once you have the frames built, I suggest you lay a good supply of newspaper or cardboard down on the ground inside the frame. The thick cover of cardboard, grass clippings, and newspaper will smother the grass you are covering with your frames. Now layer in mulched leaves and small sticks, a good spreading of compost, and manure, and then add your topsoil. Fill your boxes to the very top. Your soil will have a chance to settle before you begin to plant. A soil test is advised so you can amend the “new soil” and add amendments before you begin planting. Clemson University Extension Office at Greenville County
January in the garden does have its moments. I love the naked silhouettes of the limbs of the trees as they stretch to the sky. It reminds me of the circulatory system of my own limbs and how important my lifeblood is. In one of my favorite books, “Gardening at the Dragon’s Gate” by Wendy Johnson, there is a story about a magical deity who visited Buddha in the night and asked this question: “The inner tangle and the outer tangle — Who succeeds in untangling this tangle?” Buddha answers, “The one who sits down in the middle of it and looks with attention.” Pay attention to the signs in your garden and inside yourself and you will know when to begin. 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.

Benefit show aims to help jump-start Upstate chapter of Girls Rock Camp Alliance VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR
In early 2017, University of South Carolina graduate student Victoria White landed an internship with Girls Rock Columbia, the local branch of a nonprofit organization called the Girls Rock Camp Alliance. The GRCA is an international coalition of organizations whose shared mission is to empower girls, women, transgender, and gender-nonconforming people through music and arts education to foster community and build power. There are more than 50 Girls Rock camps worldwide, where attendees learn an instrument, form a band, write an original song, and perform a concert at a live music venue. White’s experience with the GRCA has been transformative. “Girls Rock is my dream job,” she says. “The longer I worked with these amazing women, the more confident I became in our ability to bring this sort of environment to Greenville.” But as with all things, to start something from scratch, even a nonprofit, you need money. So White reached out to her friend Amelia Taylor Hall, singer and guitarist for the Greenville punk band Horrible Girl & The Hot Mess, who’s spent the past couple of years building up her band’s following and making friends on the Greenville mu-

donated gear, etc. It’s a huge undertaking, and to be entirely honest, it’s terrifying. I’ve never done anything this in-depth before, so I’m still learning as I go. We’d like to launch the camp by summer 2018, though that’s a huge long shot looking at where we are now.” As for the other bands involved, they’re all well aware of how important a Girls Rock camp in Greenville could be. “Doing what we love and supporting these young women as they express themselves is a dream come true,” says Hugger Mugger singer/guitarist Cassie Posey. “I just feel like it’s important to show representation of female-fronted bands in a scene where it’s primarily male-dominated,” says Tom Angst singer/guitarist Danielle McConaghy. “Girls need to know that they can lead a rock band and kick ass at it.” But it’s The Cherry Icees singer and guitar player Shelby Switchblade who perhaps sums up the show, and the potential camp, the best: “We just want to play some rock ‘n’ roll,” she says. “That’s it.” FEATURING HORRIBLE GIRL & THE HOT MESS, HUGGER MUGGER, THE CHERRY ICEES, AND TOM ANGST

sic scene. White proposed that they begin a Girls Rock Camp in the Upstate and find a way to help fund it. Hall loved the idea and organized a four-band benefit show at the Radio Room this Saturday featuring Horrible Girl, the bubblegum-punk band The Cherry Icees, the dream-rockers Hugger Mugger, and the indie-rock outfit Tom Angst. Proceeds from the show will go toward launching a Girls Rock summer camp in Greenville. “The Greenville population of young girls and gender-variant youth are in dire need of an artistic outlet in a safe place,” White says, “and money tends to make things happen. So, the sooner we have a few dollars in our pockets, the sooner we can have more concrete plans concerning our 2018 summer camp. There are thousands of nonprofits already in South Carolina, and with a limited financial pool, we’re all competing for the same resources. But thanks to Amelia, we have a jump start on gear and connections within the community to hold a show like this one.” For Hall’s part, she says she chose the bands for the benefit for a reason. “We wanted to have a set of local femmefronted bands,” she says. “Girls Rock is all about the empowerment of women and GNC [gender-nonconforming] folks, so we wanted a bill of bands all fronted by women. This isn’t something that can happen overnight, and we’re very much in the early stages, but we’ve had an excellent response from the community so far.” Both Hall and White know, however, that this benefit show is just the beginning. “We still have so much to do,” Hall says. “Recruiting volunteers and a potential board of directors, filing incorporation paperwork with the state and nonprofit applications with the federal government, scouting locations, getting insurance and

PARADE OF HITS Centre Stage’s annual rock ‘n’ roll show will pay homage to some of music’s greatest keyboardists VINCENT HARRIS | CONTRIBUTOR
For the past seven years, one of the most popular performances on Centre Stage’s schedule has been its annual “Rock ’N’ Roll” show. Every year, the show gathers together some of the best and most beloved songs in rock and pop music history under different themes (’80s songs, for example), puts together a great band and a cast of incredible singers, and creates a nonstop revue of hits. The shows have become so popular that the theater has had to add shows each year to meet demand. And this year’s version, “Rockin’ the Keys,” which will run Jan. 18 to Feb. 10, is no exception. “I checked the ticket sales recently to see how we were doing,” says “Rockin’ the Keys” director and set designer Rick Connor, “and the shows are already around two-thirds of the way sold.” Perhaps one of the reasons for the presale surge is that “Rockin’ the Keys” will feature a cavalcade of hits from some of the best-selling artists of all time, including Elton John, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles. All legends, and all artists whose music revolved around the keyboards. “This is a rock ’n’ roll concert,” says one of the show’s vocalists, Javy Pagan. “It’s not like another piece of musical theater; it’s not a play. There really isn’t a story-

line. It’s just iconic song after iconic song by people who have made their mark on the music industry using keyboards, in addition to their voices and the melodies.” In the director’s eyes, however, “Rockin’ the Keys” does tell a story, using the catalogs of these titans of rock, soul, and pop. “Back in July, I started pulling together as many songs as I could,” Connor says. “I’d drive around for hours listening to music and trying to find songs that would encompass ‘Rockin’ the Keys.’ Not just the piano, but the keys. They’re keyboard-based songs. And it took me a couple of months to figure out what would be a good opener, what would be a good closer, and what sequence of songs would tell a story. There’s an ebb and flow to a good show.” There will be a full rock band onstage behind the singers, with dueling keyboards on both sides of the stage and a three-piece horn section. “The band adds so much energy and
excitement,” Pagan says. “They’re an electrifying band, and all of them are topnotch musicians.” Rick Connor arranged the songs for “Rockin’ the Keys” with musical director Chase McAbee and the onstage band’s bassist, Greg Day, and they’ll have a lot of help this time around. For the first time in the series’ history, some of the vocalists will be playing guitar and keyboards while singing the hits for the majority of the show. “With this one, we really wanted to make sure that the cast could command instruments if they needed to,” Pagan says. “Before, they would have featured moments, whereas from the start of this show we have people playing their own instruments.” It’s a heavier load for the singers to carry, but Connor says they’ve come through in spades. “Luckily, Greenville had a huge talent pool to pull from,” he says. “They’re all talented as instrumentalists; they’re talented across the board. They’re not only phenom-
enal actors, but phenomenal musicians.” Connor says the hardest part of planning out the “Rockin’ the Keys” show has been deciding what to leave out. “Early on in the process, I had three or four lists of songs on my phone,” he says. “I knew I was going to have a three-piece horn section, so I wanted to have songs where I could use that.

PREPARE TO BE GOBSMACKED!
“GOBSMACKED!” showcases the talents of an international cast of vocalists and a world-champion beatboxer. Photo provided
The hybrid a cappellabeatboxing show hopes to both astonish and entertain NEIL SHURLEY | CONTRIBUTOR
In the United Kingdom, if someone says they’re gobsmacked, it means they are utterly astonished. And that’s exactly the promise of “GOBSMACKED!” the a cappella and beatboxing show that plays Monday night at the Peace Center. Featuring an international cast of vocalists along with a world-champion beatboxer, “GOBSMACKED!” highlights the versatility of human voices as they create full sonic landscapes without the use of any accompanying instruments. “GOBSMACKED!” originated three years ago as the brainchild of producer Nic Doodson, a founding member of the a cappella group The Magnets. “I toured the world for 17 years,” he told the Greenville Journal in a recent telephone interview, “and in that time I saw the rise of a cappella from something I had to explain to suddenly
being something I didn’t have to explain.” Indeed, thanks to the television show “Glee” and the “Pitch Perfect” movies, as well as popular groups like Pentatonix and Straight No Chaser (who performed at the Peace Center this past November), the cultural awareness of a cappella has perhaps never been greater. Although he’s spent much of his life in the U.K., from age 10 to 18 Nic Doodson lived in New Jersey, where he developed his voice by singing in high school choir. Around that time he also discovered — and fell in love with — an a cappella group called Rockapella, who had a bit of fame in the early ’90s with their theme for the PBS children’s show “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” “When I went to university in London, I was expecting to join an a cappella group, but they didn’t have one,” Doodson recalls. “I had to start a group. And it’s continued to this day.” He laughs. “Maybe that will be my legacy!” The act of creating the University College London a cappella group ultimately became the key to Doodson’s future. “In my last year at university, we got on a British TV show, and ended up signing a contract with EMI Records,” Doodson says. “I
got my degree in physics and then went touring, much to my parents’ chagrin.” They called their a cappella group The Magnets, and they toured the world, including such far-flung locales as Moscow, Hong Kong, and Mumbai. Today, the group continues to perform, even as Nic Doodson branches out as a producer. “Ultimately, I had the idea to try to create for a cappella what Tap Dogs did for tap dancing and what Stomp did for drumming,” he says. The result was “GOBSMACKED!” which Doodson calls a hybrid of show and concert — a sort of staged concert with seven stylized “characters,” including “The Chap,” “The Diva,” and “The Engineer.” “We held auditions and found the best vocalists in the world, from West End to Broadway,” Doodson says. That talent includes Marcus Collins, who won second place on the British TV talent show “X Factor,” and West End star Monika Sik-Holm. But the real star is BallZee, a world beatbox champion who creates an astonishing range of vocal sounds, from drum beats to bass lines to realistic sound effects. “He’s phenomenal,” Doodson says. “He’s always practicing and working on his craft.
He is truly dedicated to getting better.” The show features songs that range from the ’60s to modern day, Doodson says. “The Beatles, Ed Sheeran, the BlackEyed Peas, James Brown — there’s really something for everyone.” If you enjoyed the “Pitch Perfect” movies, Doodson invites you to “come and see the real thing.” And as for Straight No Chaser, Doodson says the difference between his show and theirs is that “GOBMSACKED!” has seven instead of 13 members, and is really more of a show than a concert. “And,” Doodson adds, “we have a better beatboxer.” But whatever your experience with a cappella acts, Doodson promises that if you see “GOBSMACKED!” you will be both astonished and entertained. “We always send the audience home dancing and singing,” he says.

BARTENDERS YOU SHOULD KNOW ZACHARY CALFEE, ROOST WORDS BY ARIEL TURNER | PHOTO BY WILL CROOKS
38 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 01.19.2018 GREENVILLEJOURNAL.COM
hances are, if you order a whiskey cocktail at the Roost bar, bartender Zachary Calfee will convince you to give James E. Pepper whiskey a shot. And he’ll sell it to you in his signature high-energy, rapid-fire manner that will convince you of both its historic importance to the catalog of American whiskey (and therefore, your life) and that there’s absolutely no chance of saying no. While measuring and mixing whatever version of an Old Fashioned you’ve settled on, Calfee will also probably tell you the tragic tale of the flamboyant Col. Pepper’s all-too-early demise after slipping, falling, and hitting his head in 1906 at 56 years old. Just three minutes into that stop for a drink, you’ll realize with Calfee behind the bar that your experience will become equal parts educational and enjoyable, especially if he gets chatting about his precocious 3-year-old daughter, Phoenix. And in Calfee’s mind, that’s mission accomplished. Calfee, at 28 years old, has recently been named the master of mixology for Auro Hotels, formerly part of JHM Hotels. Auro owns the Hyatt downtown where Roost is, the under-construction Spring Hill Suites/ Residence Inn combo at the corner of East Washington
Favorite cocktail to make: Lion’s Tail (bourbon and lime, allspice dram, some almond or walnut)
“You can take the worst whiskey on the planet, I mean, it just tastes disgusting, and it’ll still taste good in that drink. You can use the bottom shelf of the bottom shelf, and it’ll still taste good.”
Craziest cocktail ever made: The Smog at Armada
Calfee created a house-blended whiskey (Buffalo Trace, Applejack brandy, and Rittenhouse Rye), mixed with vermouth, smoked cloves, and brown sugar and cinnamon, served from the smoking jar.
feast and Spring streets, and the future AC Hotel at the Camperdown development at South Main and Broad streets. As the new “MoM,” as he jokingly calls it, Calfee will revamp the Hyatt’s atrium bar along with other Auro Hotel bars in the area and concept for the multiple new beverage programs that will open in new hotels throughout the brand. For the Spring Hill Suites restaurant, Calfee has an Earth-themed cocktail menu planned that he describes as approachable and affordable. “I don’t want you to have to gauge whether the price of that drink is worth the experience,” he says. For the AC Hotel, which will have a rooftop and street-level bar, the drinks will be less complicated because of the high volume of guests, but still “amazing drinks,” he says. And even though he’s relatively young to land in such a formative position, Calfee, who moved to the Upstate in June 2016, has 10 years of experience concocting both regular and adventurous cocktails in small farm-totable restaurants, night clubs, franchise bars, and his own speakeasy. Calfee is originally from Knoxville, Tenn., where he began working in restaurants as a teenager. At age 18, he was working at Wok Hay, a defunct Asian Ruby Tuesday concept, when a bartender called in sick, and he got thrown behind the bar with some champion bartenders. “I’ve always been really good with people, and I was already interested in the bar, but I wasn’t allowed to bartend because I wasn’t 21,” he says. He had a knack for it, and it ended up becoming his regular gig. Once in college at the University of Tennessee, he continued to bartend at a variety of establishments, but he says he was actually afraid to become too dedicated because of the risk of it pulling him away from school. Though, in actuality, he wasn’t happy with how his academic experience was going, bouncing around from anthropology to film to geology majors. “I was all over the place, and all of those things that I was doing, I really disliked the people that I was around. They were kinda like Sheldon — they weren’t very social,” he says, referring to the anti-social but brilliant “The Big Bang Theory” character. “And I liked science. I liked school, but I liked people, and I wanted to get to do that.”
One day, Calfee came home after a particularly rough shift behind the bar and he thought about quitting entirely, but then he read an online article about making his own amaretto. “I thought, ‘That’s stupid. I hate amaretto. It’s sweet and awful. Why would you want to make your own?’” he says. Somehow, the allure of an easy home project lured him in, and he gave it a shot. “It was really good,” he says. His would-be wife was out of town, so he had some time to kill. “When my wife got home from her trip, the refrigerator was full of my house-made gin, and I had spiced rum making in the corner, and I had bottles of green tea liquor, and amaretto,” he says. “And I just couldn’t stop.” Calfee, at age 23, was hooked. “Within six months from that, I had dropped out of school and cashed in my retirement accounts to open my first bar,” he says. That bar, Armada in Knoxville, could hold 200-plus people and would run for three years, becoming profitable, before a construction mishap in the neighboring building damaged his building’s foundation. A competitor hired up Calfee and his entire staff within a week or two, and he was named manager and lead for any new concepts, which landed him with 80-hour workweeks. “I learned a ton,” he says. “I mean, it was awful.” His position at Roost and now with Auro Hotels isn’t quite that intense, but it is busy. Yet Calfee finds a way to tap into his love of reading, even if it’s for work. “I still get to read, but I’m reading cookbooks, and I’m reading online articles about how to make chocolate curds so I can figure out how to infuse those flavors onto tequila,” he says. Fatherhood has also certainly changed his use of free time. “My hobbies are now braiding hair and coloring. We do the trampoline park a lot. Most of my hobbies are now her hobbies,” he says. “I like cinema and art, but I only use that now to get a connection with people over the bar. It’s one of those things — it can help you engage at work.”
RESTAURANTS ANNOUNCED FOR EUPHORIA’S ‘A SOUTHERN REMEDY: COMFORT FOOD, BOOZE & TUNES’ To chase away the winter blues, Euphoria, Greenville’s food, wine, and music festival, will host “A Southern Remedy: Comfort Food, Booze & Tunes” from 7 to 10 p.m. Feb. 22 at Revel, 304 E.

Smiley’s Acoustic Cafe | 111 Augusta St. | 6:30 p.m. | Free
On her first album, 2015’s “Free,” singer/ songwriter Amber Ikeman created a gorgeous, sweeping collection of largely acoustic folk that seemed as vast and atmospheric as the skies in her adopted home of Montana. For her second album, “Rise,” the folk is still there, but there’s also a new, grittier style worked into the mix on songs like “Wild Buffalo.” It’s not quite folk-rock, but she’s written and arranged these songs with more confidence the second time out. “When I did my first album, I hadn’t really done much touring before that,” she says. “With the second one, I really had a chance to get to know the songs better by playing them for people, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBBBj8_35xo and they sort of evolved each time I played them live, and that helped prepare me better for recording them.” With passages like “Mama, I am sorry / This isn’t what you dreamed / A rebel daughter wandering / No home or family” (from “Wild Buffalo”), it’s a solid bet that Ikeman’s material is largely autobiographical. “A lot of it is at least inspired by real events in my life,” she says. “In that instance, I was thinking of my grandmother, who really wants me to get married and settle down.” —Vincent Harris

Songwriters Series w/ Chris Stalcup & Matt Woods Gottrocks | 200 Eisenhower Drive | 9 p.m. | $5
On his most recent album with his band, The Grange, called “Downhearted Fools,” Georgia’s Chris Stalcup sits comfortably on the line between rock and country. Like the Drive-By Truckers or Son Volt before him, Stalcup can work plenty of honky-tonk twang into a rocker and gritty guitars into a country weeper without breaking a sweat. And part of that is because of the music he was raised on. “I grew up on Southern rock,” he says, “and I can’t say it didn’t have a huge impact on me. As I’ve tried to progress as a songwriter, I find myself trying to become a better storyteller, and that all points back to the country and Southern rock that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_PXKEaEdL4 was so poignant and told these great stories.” Perhaps that country influence is why Stalcup isn’t afraid to strip his music down to just a voice and an acoustic guitar, as he’ll be doing at Gottrocks as part of its new Songwriters Series. “I really love the rawness of it,” he says. “That format is great because I’m able to showcase these songs as they were written. As a listener, that always excited me: hearing what the artist intended in its purest form.” —Vincent Harris of delicious sides.

In some ways, our images of The Beatles playing live are frozen in time, perhaps even more so than their music. After all, the band stopped performing live in 1966, so many of their later classics were never performed onstage. But The Beatles tribute band The Return has managed to combine the best of both worlds. Sure, they can don the matching suits and shake their mop-tops like the early Fab Four on songs like “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves You,” but they can also transform into Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and bang out classics like “With a Little Help From My Friends” and “Hello Goodbye” just as easily. And that’s pretty impressive, because many https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_sNMzKKzI4 of these songs weren’t written to be performed live. The fact that four guys standing onstage can recreate the Technicolor psychedelia, perfectly layered vocal harmonies, and intricate instrumental arrangements of a studio-bound band is quite a feat. —Vincent Harris meat before providing them with the skills necessary to craft their own expert charcuterie boards. www.swamprabbitcafe.com/events WED-SUN
