As a child, when Sarai Bautista imagined the Chihuahuan Desert in northern Mexico, she envisioned sparse, flat stretches of sand — but when she walked it at age 11 with her mother and two younger siblings, she felt every rocky slope they stumbled over. The entire trip from her home state of Puebla, Mexico, to South Carolina likely took less than a week, but to Bautista it felt more like a month. In the 17 years she’s had to reflect on the journey, Bautista has attempted to pry every detail of the trip from her mom, but some remain hazy. Other memories stand out over time — the pebbles that stayed lodged in her shoes when they spent two days walking the border of Arizona and Mexico, the thorny brush that dotted the landscape and scraped her legs, and the nighttime wind chill that she never experienced in the small town she was from in southern Mexico. “It was very, very rocky, very uneven, very dry,” Bautista said. “[I remember] just trying not to fall, trying not to get continuously scraped in the face by thorns.” The trip was harsh and expensive — smugglers, often called coyotes, typically charge thousands of dollars to illegally transport immigrants across the United States border. Bautista isn’t sure exactly how much her own trip cost, but from the money her family owed afterward, her guess is upwards of $6,000. But her parents knew that while the trip had its own dangers and risks, so did staying in Mexico. Over the years, Bautista has heard stories about kidnappings and read reports of the brutal 2014 murders in Guerrero, Mexico — just one state over from her hometown. Often, she wonders what her life would have been like if she stayed, but even at 11, she knew that wasn’t her decision to make. “It was just like, this is what we’re doing,” Bautista said. “When your mom says this is what’s going on, this is what’s going on.” When she got to South Carolina, she wasn’t prepared for the hurdles she would have to jump for the next decade. Along with not speaking English, Bautista’s parents made the decision to hold her back in school for a year so she could catch up to her peers. “The educational system hadn’t done me that well in Mexico,” Bautista said. “I remember the first day of sixth grade I just cried in the middle of math class.” By the end of middle school, Bautista felt like she had finally gotten her feet underneath her — she was fluent in English and had made friends. It wasn’t until midway through high school that she realized life would be different for her than it was for her friends. By age 16, most of her friends were driv-

ing to school, but because Bautista was in the country illegally, she wasn’t able to get her driver’s license. By graduation, when most of her friends were applying for college, she found out South Carolina bars illegal immigrants from attending public colleges — it’s one of two states in the country that still has this rule. “Junior year of high school is when I figured it out,” Bautista said. “I read about [Gov.] Mark Sanford signing into law that it would be against the law for colleges to accept undocumented people, and I just started crying at the library.” Bautista rode the bus all throughout high school. She worked at a restaurant for four years after graduating. “I was just like, ‘Well, I guess this is it for me,’” she said.

THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF BEING A ‘DREAMER’

It wasn’t until Bautista was 21 years old — when President Barack Obama implemented the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — that her life changed dramatically. “The first legal job I got was at ChickFil-A,” she said. “I got my license, I enrolled at Greenville

Tech — [my life] just flipped.” DACA allows Bautista and others like her, often called “Dreamers,” to work in the U.S. without the threat of deportation for two years, but comes with stringent requirements.

what is daca? Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allows Sarai and others like her, to legally work in the U.S. without the threat of deportation for two years, but comes with stringent requirements. DACA recipients must: ■■ have been brought to the United States when they were younger than 16 by June 15, 2007. ■■ be between 15 and 31 years old to apply. ■■ have a clean criminal record ■■ have continuously lived in the United States since June 15, 2007 ■■ They must be in school, have graduated from school, have a GED, or have been honorably discharged from the military.

For now, the DACA program is limited — new applications haven’t been accepted since President Donald Trump rescinded the program in 2017, pending a review by the U.S. Supreme Court. Although DACA participants are allowed to attend public colleges in South Carolina, they’re charged as out-of-state students and don’t receive any state or federal scholarships. At most public colleges in the state, tuition is more than double the cost for nonresidents. For high school graduates like Claudia Hidalgo, the cost of tuition is the biggest factor holding her back. Hidalgo was born in Mexico, but she’s been living in the United States since she was 3 years old. “My parents have always advocated that your education is your No. 1 priority, and essentially,

that’s kind of why we’re here — to get a better life, to be able to get a secondary education,” Hidalgo said. But on top of the ever-increasing cost of tuition, Hidalgo’s and other Dreamers’ parents are unable to legally work in the U.S., making it difficult for them to save enough to pay for college. “Of course we have our dream schools that we want to go to — I applied my junior year of high school and got into USC, College of Charleston, Clemson, Furman — you get into these but then you see just how much you’re going to get charged, and it really demotivates you,” Hidalgo said.

‘WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT TALENT TO GO TO ANOTHER STATE?’

Bautista’s and Hidalgo’s stories are similar to the estimated 6,500 other DACA recipients in South Carolina, including Ilse Isidro. Isidro wants to be a nurse — she even has her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of South Carolina Upstate. She worked more than 30 hours a week while a student in order to attend the university and graduated in December. “I had no room to breathe because I had no room to fail,” Isidro said. “My whole existence and me coming to the United States is for us to have a better future.” But in a state with one of the largest nursing shortages in the country, she’s barred from receiving her nursing license because her parents brought her to the U.S. illegally when she was a toddler. Although DACA participants are allowed to work, South Carolina prohibits them from receiving an occupational license, which is necessary for dozens of careers — from lawyers to doctors to cosmetologists. I had no room to breathe because I had no room to fail. Isidro, who went through the public school system in South Carolina, said she just wants the opportunity to pursue her dream — as well as a chance to give back to the community that raised her. “This is our home — this

President Donald Trump attempts to end the DACA policy, but federal judges have challenged the decision. New applicants are not being accepted, but those who were already recipients of DACA are still protected. The future of DACA is pending until the U.S. Supreme Court hears the case and makes a ruling.

is the only home that we know,” Isidro said. “Why wouldn’t we keep the talent in-state and local? Why would you want that talent to go to another state?” Like Isidro, Cynthia Oliver is a DACA participant who dreams of a career she can’t have in South Carolina. Oliver, who is co-valedictorian of her senior class at Legacy Early College Charter School, wants to become a doctor and eventually travel to countries with few health care options. Her motivation comes from seeing the care her family received from mobile clinics in South Carolina, which served them even though they were uninsured. Oliver has been accepted to attend Furman University in the fall — an opportunity she didn’t know she had until she met with mentors connected to Neighborhood Focus, a nonprofit after-school program in Greenville.

Through the organization, Oliver met Julio Hernandez, associate director for Hispanic outreach with Clemson University. Hernandez helped Oliver navigate the application process and find nongovernmental scholarships. Although she’s found a way to attend school, unless the law changes, she’ll have to leave South Carolina to get a medical license. “Growing up, you hear from everybody that you can be whatever you want to be as long as you work hard,” Oliver said. But for Oliver, starting her dream career means moving away from her family.

NEED TO KNOW

Although the future for DACA participants seems bleak when looking through the lens of national politics, Bautista said she receives a lot of support from individuals and organizations in the community. “On the community level, local level, it’s great. It’s everyday people that are making our lives easier,” Bautista said. Keith Groce, executive director of Neighborhood Focus, said the organization is trying to identify children like Oliver who want to go to school but haven’t had the resources or knowledge they need to navigate that process. “They have all the potential in the world to go to school and further their learning, but they don’t have a Julio in their life, they don’t have somebody that is looking out for them and opening doors,” Groce said. State Rep. Neal Collins, R-Pickens, introduced a bill last year that would allow DACA students to receive in-state tuition and scholarships and be able to get an occupational license. It’s everyday people that are making our lives easier. The bill didn’t pass, but it did become a talking point for Collins’ two challengers last year in the Republican primary. “This was one of the major issues,” said Collins, who was re-elected for a third term in November.

“We want these students to succeed, and we want them to be contributing members of our community. This is not an immigration issue.”

C H U C K S AY L O R S

CHAIRMAN OF GCS BOARD Collins filed an identical bill this year — H.3404 — that he hopes will be discussed in the Legislature’s current two-year session. For Collins, the issue is twofold — there’s a humanitarian side as well as a fiscal one. “I like to say I’m in, arguably, the most conservative county in the most conservative state in the nation,” Collins said. “I think I’m very conservative, and from that viewpoint, I don’t see how we invest roughly $140,000 per [DACA] student and then tell them, ‘No, we don’t want you to pursue higher education. No, we don’t want you to get a better job so you can pay more taxes to return on that investment.’” Greenville County Schools estimates the cost of a DACA student in the public school system to be about $110,000 over the course of 12 years.

In February, the Greenville County Schools board sent a letter to the Legislature in support of Collins’ bill. The board has officially taken a stance

on the occupational license portion of the bill — which the district supports — but it hasn’t weighed in on the tuition or scholarship portions. The board first voiced support for the issue in a resolution it passed last year. The letter, penned by Chairman Chuck Saylors, mirrors much of the language in the resolution. “We are required by state and federal law to teach every child, and we follow that with great enthusiasm because an educated workforce is a successful workforce,” Saylors said. “So does it make good financial sense to spend that money on a student who wants to do good in the community, who wants to contribute, and our state will not allow him or her to do so?” Saylors said many students end up leaving South Carolina for a state that will allow them to get a license, and often, they don’t come back. “So we have spent an excess of $100,000 to educate that child, and Greenville County will not see one dime in taxes from a hardworking, tax-paying former student who wants to do good in their life,” Saylors said. He said the only pushback he ever hears on the issue is an argument rooted in national political rhetoric — most people he comes across want DACA students to be able to work. “We want these students to succeed, and we want them to be contributing members of our community,” Saylors said. “This is not an immigration issue.” But it’s a long road ahead for supporters of the bill. Although it has the bipartisan support of 19 legislators, like many issues in the Statehouse this year, it’s taken a back burner to the massive education reform bill that was just passed by the House. Even if the bill doesn’t pass, Bautista said she won’t stop advocating for her community. “If anyone believes in the American Dream, it’s the Hispanic community,” she said.

BRAD WILLIS started investigating the stories

behind his podcast while a reporter at WYFF in 2001. He officially began work on the podcast, titled ‘Murder, Etc.,’ last year. The podcast takes a deep dive into the 1975 double-murder of Lt. Rufus Frank Looper III and his father in the family’s auto repair garage. Photo by Will Crooks.

GREENVILLE MURDER MYSTERY Podcast highlights 1975 murder of Greenville cop story by ariel gilreath | photos provided

A photo of Charles Wakefield Jr. taken on the night of the Looper murders on Jan. 31, 1975. Law enforcement netted several dozen black men that night while looking for the suspect. Wakefield wouldn’t be arrested and charged with the murders until eight months later.

M A R C H 15 / / G R E E N V I L L E J O U R N A L . C O M

Brad Willis felt proud after he broke a story in 2001 of a convicted cop-killer being granted parole — less than a month after Willis’ story, the parole board changed course, and as a result, Charles Wakefield Jr. remained in prison for nine more years. It wasn’t until after the WYFF broadcast aired that Willis started to question Wakefield’s case — an attorney showed up from New York with a thick binder of unanswered questions and details that cast the story in a new light. Now, Willis is releasing week-by-week episodes of a podcast titled “Murder, Etc.” that explores what he

knows about the case and the evidence that has convinced him of Wakefield’s innocence. “This is my one opportunity to tell the best story I’ve ever heard,” Willis said. “If I’m ever going to tell a story the right way, it’s going to be this one.” Wakefield was sentenced to death in 1975 for the murder of Lt. Rufus Frank Looper III and his father in the family’s auto garage. On Jan. 31, 1975, Looper, who was head of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office five-member narcotics unit, was living with his parents and had just worked a late shift the night before.


NEED TO KNOW

It was about noon when his mother saw a man pacing outside the family’s garage, where Looper’s father ran an auto repair shop. She asked Looper to check on him, and with his pistol in tow, he went out to the garage. His mother heard two gunshots before she saw the man through the window flee on foot. Looper and his father died soon after from gunshot wounds to the head. Law enforcement said it was a robbery gone wrong. Wakefield was arrested and identified by two key witnesses, which the case leaned heavily on. One was a woman who testified she saw Wakefield running from the garage. The other — Wyatt Earp Harper — said he was Wakefield’s lookout in the robbery. But in 2004, Harper recanted his story to a judge, saying law enforcement scared him into testifying and coached him on the facts of the case. Wakefield was not offered a new trial. In 1976, Wakefield’s death sentence, along with a handful of others in South Carolina, were thrown out by the United

States Supreme Court after a ruling that it was unconstitutional to impose the death penalty for all first-degree murder cases. His term was commuted to two consecutive life sentences. Wakefield was released on parole in 2010. In the 18 years since Willis first heard Wakefield’s story, he’s discovered details that cast a shadow of doubt about what actually happened that day — a testimony that Wakefield was elsewhere when the crime happened, an anonymous tip of a jailhouse confession, and a possible motive to paint Wakefield as the killer. Willis also found another person who had been researching the case — Andy Ethridge. Ethridge first learned about Wakefield’s case about 20 years ago when, as a history major at Lander University, he decided to wade through old murder convictions in a South Carolina library. “The more you look, the more you become convinced that there’s just more to it,” Ethridge said. “Once you become convinced that he’s not guilty, you start to see the tragedy that [police] just kind of picked a guy.”

A few members of Looper’s own family, who are featured in the podcast, have been advocating for Wakefield over the past couple of decades. “The justice they thought they got turned out to be an injustice for someone else,” Willis said. “They don’t believe he did it.” Willis’ podcast also unearths details about 1970s crime in Greenville that makes the city seem like a sordid chapter out of a Wild West novel. In it, Willis explores the Dawson Gang — a crime ring based in the Southeast named after the Dawson family, whose various relatives served as kingpins of the group throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The gang was primarily known for its bank robberies and flair for heists. While telling the tale of a man convicted of double murder, who has maintained his innocence all 44 years, Willis takes a deep dive into a Greenville that might seem unrecognizable to its current residents. “If I never change anyone’s mind about what happened to the Loopers that day, at the very least, I can tell them the story of Greenville as a completely different character than the Greenville they know today,” Willis said.

Two weeks into Greg Porter’s latest assignment as the head of Greenville High’s football program, he was already in full-speedahead mode. “We want Greenville High School to be special,” he said. “It’s the epicenter of this city. Why shouldn’t this be the best program in the Upstate? “Let’s not be afraid to say what we want to accomplish. It sets us on our destiny.” Porter, 50, has never been afraid of failure. If that were the case, he never would have taken the job as football coach at Southside High School, and he never would have followed that by taking over the program at Hillcrest High School. “He took two programs that when he inherited them were not very good programs, and he took one all the way to the state championship and won it,” Greenville athletic director Steve Scolamiero said. In 2008, Porter’s first season at Southside, he led the Tigers to a 7-5 record — their best in 21 years — and the second round of the playoffs. But that was an appetizer for what he did at Hillcrest, a school that had one playoff vic12

M A R C H 15 / / G R E E N V I L L E J O U R N A L . C O M

tory before he arrived in 2010. In nine seasons, during which Porter became Hillcrest’s winningest football coach, he led the Rams to a 65-45 record, three region titles, and one state title. This past season, they were 5-5, yet still very competitive in the state’s toughest Class AAAAA region.

WE WANT GREENVILLE HIGH SCHOOL TO BE SPECIAL. IT’S THE EPICENTER OF THIS CITY. WHY SHOULDN’T THIS BE THE BEST PROGRAM IN THE UPSTATE?

GREG PORTER “The school had been open for 52 years, and we had won just over 200 games,” Hill-

crest athletic director Tommy Bell said. “That’s about 3.8 wins a year for the first [52] years of existence. That’s where we were as a football program. We’re going through a stretch here where the kids that are in our program now, they think the worst Hillcrest team that there’s ever been was 5-5. “Everything on our end was really, really positive with him.” And yet, Porter said there was frustration on his end. “I was a finalist for eight different jobs, from Summerville to Wilson,” Porter said. “I just said, ‘I’m going to stop, because it looks like I’m unhappy at Hillcrest.’ I just thought that when you win a state championship, there are opportunities to grow and develop. It was never about gaining money. That’s a byproduct of it, but I just thought there were some things that come with winning it. “I had to refocus. I had to step back and say, ‘Why do I coach?’ It’s not to chase championships. I love working with kids and developing them. And when I got at peace with that, when I started working on that for the next two or three years, then the opportunity finally came.”

It’s a return to Greenville High for Porter, who teaches science and was chosen as the school’s Teacher of the Year for 2006-07. (He forfeited the honor when he accepted a position at Byrnes High School.). He also was Teacher of the Year at Sevier Middle School, his first stop in the Upstate. Porter said he wasn’t looking for another job when Greenville contacted him. David Crane, the offensive coordinator under Jim Sosebee during Porter’s previous season at Greenville, had accepted the head coaching position at his alma mater, Seneca, after a successful five-year run. Porter said he has great memories from Hillcrest — the players, the “brotherhood,” the pep rallies, principals (Bryan Skipper and the late Steve Chamness) who “understand football coaches.” But he’s just as appreciative of his new opportunity, his latest challenge. “I’m just going to build off of what David Crane built,” Porter said. “He’s passing me the baton. It’s my time to run. ‘What’s unique about my type of leadership, guys? I’ve been where you want to go, and that’s the state championship.’”

GREENVILLE HUMANE SOCIETY

Saving more lives, providing more needed services following recent expansion n story by REBECCA HOWERTON | photos PROVIDED

The future didn’t look bright for Buck, a Great Dane being cared for at a shelter that partners with the Greenville Humane Society. He was underweight, heartworm positive, and had been shot in the leg. But his caregivers saw past his suffering. “He was such a wonderful dog, he became a favorite of the staff. Fortunately, we had the means to give him a second chance,” said Kim Pitman, executive director of the Greenville Humane Society. “He gained weight, was treated for heartworms, and was adopted. We were lucky to be able to do what compassionate people are supposed to — take care of animals who can’t speak for themselves.” Thanks to strong community support, including annual grants from the Community Foundation’s Margaret Linder Southern Endowment, the Greenville Humane Society is now able to save the lives of more animals than ever, as well as provide needed services to Upstate pet owners. A recent expansion, funded by a $3.3 million capital campaign, added 14,500 square feet, bringing the campus

to 24,500 square feet spanning three buildings. Pitman, who has served as executive director since 2007, said demand for preventive-care services has grown rapidly since the Airport Road location opened in 2011. The Humane Society’s spay/neuter clinic and walk-in vaccine clinic offer reasonable prices to the public, with proceeds used to provide care for shelter animals. “We couldn’t keep up with demand. We have seen a 47 percent increase in the number of spay/neuter surgeries performed here since 2011. We used to give 20,000 affordable vaccines annually — now we give over 50,000,” Pitman said. “This additional space tripled our capacity to meet the needs of the community.” The expansion, completed last September, also added The Healing Place, where Buck was treated. In 2018, 38 percent of the animals placed in permanent homes went through treatment in The Healing Place. “The Greenville Humane Society Healing Place is a totally new concept. We are

the only shelter in the Southeast with space dedicated to the care of sick and injured animals, including those that have long-term health issues and otherwise would be euthanized,” Pitman said. “In 2018, we treated more than 2,300 suffering animals, providing them the opportunity to recover and find their forever homes. Because we partner with 38 high-euthanasia shelters in five states, we are helping to lower the euthanasia rates in the entire Southeast.” Pitman credited Southern, who specified that half the annual proceeds of her endowment go to the Greenville Humane Society, with making this critical care possible, and compared her to James M. “Miss Jim” Perry, a longtime leader who was also the first woman admitted to the South Carolina Bar. “Strong, bright women are part of our past and future — one as an early advocate and another whose gift moved us into the next century,” Pitman said. With 6,099 adoptions last year, the Greenville Humane Society is the sec-

ond-largest no-kill facility in the Southeast. About 200 volunteers care for pets each month, walking dogs, working on manners, and preparing animals for adoption. “We’re still a hidden jewel that not everyone knows about. We’ve worked hard to make this a high-quality, compassionate, and fun destination for people who love animals,” Pitman said. “We’ve earned a four-star rating five years in a row on Charity Navigator to become the No. 1 animal-welfare organization in the country.” Community Foundation President Bob Morris said the strong support earned by the Greenville Humane Society reflects well on both the organization and the community as a whole. “Pets are an important part of people’s families, whether as companions or therapy or service animals,” he said. “Providing ethical treatment extends beyond the welfare of the animals themselves; it also impacts the many people who care for them.” M A R C H 15 / / G R E E N V I L L E J O U R N A L .

REDEVELOPMENT

NEW AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Residential development near BJU that includes affordable senior housing moves forward n story by CINDY LANDRUM

Greenville is one step closer to getting some new affordable housing for seniors after City Council members approved a major modification to a planned development across from Bob Jones University. Renaissance Place will have 20 cottage-style single-family homes and a 60-unit senior apartment building under the rezoning approved during a special formal City Council meeting Monday night. The new plan reduced density, improved pedestrian connectivity, and provided larger setbacks and property buffers than a proposal the city’s planning commis-

sion recommended in December be denied. “It’s a better proposal than what’s currently on the books,” city Planning and Development Manager Jay Graham told council members. The original planned development, which was approved in conjunction with the Bob Jones University-owned property’s annexation into the city in 2006, contained 50,000 square feet of retail space along North Pleasantburg Drive and up to 180 condominiums behind the commercial area. Graham said the new plan has some of the largest setbacks and property buffers of any recent development proposed in the city. At the December planning commission meeting, residents of the McCarter neighborhood expressed concern the development would destroy the pristine natural setting around the adjacent community pool and would affect pool members try-

ing to sunbathe. At Monday’s meeting, some residents opposed the new plan, saying they were concerned that the development would increase flooding, reduce their property values, and increase traffic, and about the scale of the apartment building. “We do not oppose affordable housing, only the design and layout of the property,” said Tricia Austin, a McCarter Avenue resident. “We realize that financing deadlines are in play, but we have one chance to get it right.” City officials said the developer would have to meet federal, state, and local stormwater regulations. Greenville Homeless Alliance coordinator Susan McLarty spoke in favor of the change, saying the development would be a true mixed-income community with access to doctor’s offices, grocery stores, and transit.

THE BLOOD CONNECTION GIVES LOCALS A CHANCE TO BE HEROES

The Blood Connection celebrates more than five decades of saving lives You’ve probably seen the red and white bloodmobiles parked at businesses; you might even have walked by one on your way in to work or to shop. And you probably know someone who has had to be hospitalized and who might have required a blood transfusion. But what you might not realize is that, in the Upstate, there is only one agency that is responsible for supplying all the blood needed for every area hospital: The Blood Connection. Every day, the non-profit organization is tasked with supplying hundreds of units of lifesaving blood to the hospitals it serves. It’s a daunting challenge, yet TBC employees all understand the critical nature of what they do. “Our number one priority is making sure every daughter, son, mother, father, friend, or neighbor has the blood they need to live another day,” explains Delisa English, president and CEO of The Blood Connection. “When we come together as a community to hold each other up by donating blood, we show how powerful connecting can be. It’s in our name -- we make that connection between those who have and those who need, to save lives.” The Blood Connection has been focused on saving lives since it was founded in 1962 in Greenville. Over time, TBC accepted the challenge to provide blood to hospitals in an ever-growing geographic area, and along the way became the largest independently managed, non-profit community blood center in the region, according to Terra Strange, a 13-year TBC veteran who is currently the organization’s promotions and community engagement coordinator.

In each area it serves, TBC works closely with local hospitals to ensure their patients have enough blood and blood products on hand to meet their needs. “Consistently achieving daily blood collection goals ensures a worry-free inventory of blood products for our hospital partners,” Strange says. “They rely on us, and we deliver.” In total, TBC currently serves more than 55 hospitals each day, 25 of which are in the Upstate. To meet that need, according to Strange, almost 600 units of blood must be collected DAILY DEMAND daily, either at one of the TBC recruits donors five donation centers, and collects blood or through the agenwithin 17 counties cy’s bloodmobiles. in the Upstate.

“Thanks to our volunteer blood donors, we’ve successfully provided blood to every person in the Upstate who has needed it,” according to Strange. “The only way to make sure that the blood products are on the shelves in hospitals is through volunteer donors. That’s neighbors helping neighbors, and that need never goes away.” English notes the challenge: “Blood cannot be replicated; it has to come from other humans,” she explains. “It’s a non-stop critical need. One in 7 people who visit a hospital need blood. Unfortunately, less than 10 percent of eligible donors actually give. And national statistics show that every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. Those numbers speak for themselves.” People at TBC know that local patients rely on them every day, so the organization ensures that needs will be met by keeping all of the blood it collects in the communities it serves. That way, Strange says, blood is available for cancer patients, burn victims, trauma cases, surgical patients, and people with blood disorders. “Blood donors never know whose lives they’re going to impact, but they can know their donation will always give someone’s child, parent, grandparent or neighbor a chance at life,” Strange says.

Michael McDunn Michael McDunn, owner of the Michael McDunn Studio in Greenville, crafts unique wood furniture for clients all over the eastern U.S. and even Europe. But before he established his showroom and connecting studio in 1981, McDunn had an interesting beginning in South Carolina. Pennsylvania native McDunn moved to Greenville in the early ‘70s in search of a higher-paying job. “Probably the first two weeks I lived in my car,” McDunn says. Ensuring that he would never be in that predicament again, McDunn bought a school bus to convert into a camper. After a construction accident, McDunn was out of work and lived in the bus for about four months. “That was kind of an interesting episode of life — it was kind of fun,” he says. During that time, McDunn and a friend would do relief carvings of birds and animals. He and his friend had both done woodcarving in Boy Scouts and bonded over the shared experience. Despite having asthma and a wood allergy, McDunn began woodworking 26

M A R C H 15 / / G R E E N V I L L E J O U R N A L . C O M

in a serious way and discovered his passion for the craft. He learned much about his craft during his five years as the resident woodworker at the Greenville County Museum of Art. “It gave me … a better-than-average foundation to get started on — both as to what good design was, and what it was not, and not to get caught in little trends and fads of what people are doing,” he says. His work is constantly evolving, but tables remain his favorite projects. “Right now, rustic, natural-edge furniture and stuff is the trend, and I’ve been oddly enough making that for almost 40 years,” McDunn says. “But it was much harder to sell years ago.” Today, with tastes varying from person to person, McDunn feels stretched with each project. “[My favorite process] is designing the pieces and coming up with a piece that’s going to fit in a particular environment, which can be challenging,” he says. McDunn, along with four others, established the Greenville Woodworkers

Guild in 1981, which now includes over 700 members. “I like sharing my information that I’ve acquired over the years from woodworking,” McDunn says. He’s taught woodworking classes at his studio since the late ‘90s and enjoys seeing classmates become friends. “To have people from their late 20s to their 70s, Democrats, Republicans, and then everybody’s having a good time helping each other out and doing their projects,” he says. “That’s just something I find that’s extremely satisfying.” While some may consider handmade furniture expensive, McDunn thinks of furniture as one of three big purchases in life. “One is your house, the other’s your car, the other’s your furniture,” he says. “Your furniture is something that, if you shop wisely, is going to be around for the rest of your life, and you’ll probably give it to somebody down the road.” McDunn’s work can be seen at his showroom on 741 Rutherford Road in Greenville.

‘Power of Sail’

MARCH 15­ - 31

The Warehouse Theatre, 37 Augusta St. $ 3 5 - $ 4 0  | W W W. W A R E H O U S E T H E AT R E . C O M Harvard professor Charles Nichols is afraid that the younger generation of college professors is passing him by, so he takes a calculated risk in inviting an incredibly controversial White Nationalist speaker to campus.

“It’s funny. It’s shocking. It’s chilling. It’s thrilling. It’ll be a roller coaster,” leading actor Rob Kahn says of the new thriller “Power of Sail.” Written by Paul Grellong, co-executive producer of CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O,” “Power of Sail” is making its world premiere at The Warehouse Theatre in Greenville. Kahn plays the role of Harvard professor Charles Nichols, who stirs controversy upon inviting a young white nationalist to speak at an annual lecture series. After the list of speakers leaks to the student body and the public, chaos ensues. “The students go into full protest,” Kahn says. His dean, former and current students, and others try changing Nichols’ mind. 28

A self-proclaimed free-speech absolutist, Nichols strongly believes all people should have the right to speak their mind, including hate speech. “There are a lot of surprising discoveries and realizations that make you suddenly look at a character in a completely different way once you discover what they have done, or what they have fallen into,” Kahn says. The play draws lines and aims to force people to evaluate their own stances on issues. “I love the fact that I don’t think you can see this play and not be affected,” he says. “Power of sail” is a nautical term re-

“IT ALSO DEALS WITH A LOT OF ISSUES IN OUR WORLD TODAY: SEXISM, ANTI-SEMITIC BEHAVIOR, RACISM, AND CLASS. IT EXPOSES ALL OF THAT.”

ferring to motorboats yielding to sailboats that are dependent on the wind. “The more powerful boat must give way to the less powerful,” Kahn says. The name, in many ways, serves as a metaphor for the opposing groups represented in the play, such as a rich white male establishment versus a minority establishment, Kahn explains. “This big part of the play has to do with white nationalists and the power they are trying to push forward,” Kahn says. Director Jackson Gay, who was asked by Grellong to direct, says “Power of Sail” is about the downfall of a man through his own actions due to hubris and ambition.

“It also deals with a lot of issues in our world today: sexism, anti-Semitic behavior, racism, and class,” Gay says. “It exposes all of that.” Despite covering heavy issues, “Power of Sail” offers an edge-of-your-seat experience. “It’s the perfect combination of meaningful and important topics of everyone’s day-to-day life and pure entertainment,” she says. The structure of the play takes the audience on a journey moving forward to a certain point and then back. “It’s like taking a day trip on a sailboat,” Gay says. “You spend the whole time getting out there, it’s unfamiliar and all that, but then on your way back you have a completely different perspective.”

When it comes to relationships, we’re all in this together. “Hunter Gardner’s Dating Symposium Live” is here to offer an interactive comedic experience for all those who have experienced the “comedy of errors” called love. Gardner’s second solo show comes to Greenville’s Alchemy Comedy Theater on March 16. “Drinking With Jesus,” his first show, came to Greenville in 2016. Gardner says he wants audience members, whether married, dating, or single, to feel better about themselves and others after watching his latest show. “I have pretty much been a single person my entire life but for some reason HUNTER GARDNER love to give dating comedian advice,” Gardner says. “So, what happens when this outside observer of love declares himself a dating expert and relays those observations? Turns out, it is pretty funny stuff.” If you’re imagining sitting and listening to jokes all night, think again. Gardner’s show involves the audience. “I see it more as a mashup of jokes, stories, and audience interaction — you probably won’t know what to expect next,” he says. A live script-reading, a flirting re-enactment, and reading icebreaker ideas off index cards are some of the ways Gard-

ner plans to keep the audience engaged and entertained. A fan of comedy since his childhood days listening to Kermit the Frog’s “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” Gardner had his first open-mic experience in his early 20s in Charleston. Later, Gardner moved to New York after touring “Drinking With Jesus,” and there he began writing what would become his second solo show. “After a few months, I had all these new character pieces, audience bits, and standup jokes,” he says. “That became the material of the show, but what inspired me to dive in on another solo show is the opportunity to create a shared connection with audience members.” Hearing feedback from audiences of his first show, Gardner learned that the show made them feel understood. “That’s what I’m chasing: to let people know that they are not alone and everything is going to be OK,” he says. Gardner creates a live experience that can’t be replicated on a screen. “What I aim to do on stage is to mix comedy with heart, which also makes it different from what you might see in a traditional comedy club,” he says.

THE GOOD DETECTIVE

TRIPLE THE LAUGHS

Judge, jury, executioner? Lead character in “The Good Detective” doesn’t know n story by CINDY LANDRUM | photo PROVIDED

“The Good Detective” Book Talk MARCH 19, 6:30 P.M.

Fiction Addiction $10  | W W W . F I C T I O N - A D D I C T I O N . C O M Come meet author John McMahon for his “The Good Detective” book launch event at Fiction Addiction.

Author John McMahon was born in the Bronx, lived in the Catskills and Yuma, Arizona, and now calls Southern California home. So naturally, he set his debut mystery, “The Good Detective,” in the South. “I wanted to write a contemporary detective story, but with southern gothic elements such as a looming sense of place, and a contrast between urban and rural, rich and poor,” said McMahon, an advertising agency creative director who has written a Super Bowl spot for Alfa Romeo. “I knew it had to be set in the South.” McMahon, who said he spent weekends in Atlanta for business and explored the area during his free time, will be at Fiction Addiction in Greenville for a book launch event on March 19 at 6:30 p.m. “The Good Detective” tells the story of P.T. Marsh, a rising star on the Mason Falls, Georgia police force until his wife and young son died in an accident. Now he’s a cop on the edge, making sloppy mistakes when he should know better, such as when he agrees to help a woman out by confronting her abusive boyfriend. When he’s called to the scene of his latest murder case the next morning, he’s stunned to arrive at the house of the very man he beat up the night before. Marsh knows he was one of the last people to see this man alive, but he can’t reveal his involvement. “He’s driven by justice,” McMahon said, “but feels he’s been a part of the process

where real justice is not often found because compromises are made along the way. Now, he has nothing to use. He was judge and jury, and we don’t know if he was the executioner.” But the trouble is only beginning. Marsh and his partner, Remy Morgan, have another murder to investigate — the body of a black teenager was found in a burned-out field with a portion of a blackened rope around his neck — and the man he beat up is the prime suspect. Marsh discovers a conspiracy that goes all the way back to the time of the Civil War. “The Good Detective” tells the story of P.T. Marsh, a rising star on the Mason Falls, Georgia police force until his wife and young son died in an accident. Now he’s a cop on the edge, making sloppy mistakes when he should know better.

“America is so young that its history is so recent,” said McMahon, who has been compared to Greg Iles McMahon said worked on “The Good Detective” for two years. He’s working on the second book of what he sees as a series of three to four books minimum.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

U P STAT E WITH VINCENT HARRIS A few years back, Greenville’s Ash FosterLee was making home recordings of electronic music in his living room. It took him a while to work up the courage to take what he was doing public, but he eventually formed a project called The Parlor Pinks with singer, producer, and visual artist Rachel Clark. The average Parlor Pinks song sounds like it’s echoing down from a mountaintop, raining electronically treated vocals, icy waves of synths, and thunderous, complex beats. It’s compelling music, but as a relative novice to the Upstate scene, Foster-Lee initially had trouble getting attention from concert bookers. He slowly built up a network of friends, getting the occasional show booked, but eventually he and Clark decided to do it themselves.

U P S TAT E B E AT

ANATOMY OF A CONCERT SERIES

How TPP Events is bringing genre-bending shows to the Upstate Clark and Foster-Lee formed their own event-booking agency, TPP Events. The initial plan was simply to find places for Parlor Pinks’ shows, but it quickly expanded into something more. “We were trying to produce shows on the fly, and we decided to create our own lane,” Foster-Lee says. “We figured since we were going to have to do all the work anyway, we should bring some more people in.” Foster-Lee is underselling this a bit. He and Clark have created an ambitious series of genre-blending shows throughout the Upstate, but most notably at The Eighth State Brewing Co. on Augusta Street in Greenville. Over the next few months, TPP’s weekly Friday- and Saturday-night concert series will feature a healthy mix of heavy guitar-rock bands, acoustic folk, Latin pop, electronic pop, and more, and all of the shows are free. The partnership with Eighth State began after The Parlor Pinks played a Halloween show at the brewery. “I saw where they were coming from and that they had a general vision,” Foster-Lee says. “They understand that it’s a business, but they genuinely care about the community

I WANT TO GET PEOPLE FROM THE BREWERY SCENE TO OPEN UP TO MORE GENRES OF MUSIC, AND I WANT PEOPLE TO SEE THE FREE-SHOW MODEL AS A VIABLE MODEL.

ASH FOSTER-LEE musician

and about putting music and art out there.” Putting on concerts at a brewery was a challenge at first, but Foster-Lee says TPP Events has managed to hone its craft since the series began late last year. “They gave me a budget to work with, and the more we build business and bring more people in, the more we can provide the brewery with the business it needs to pay out so I can go out and promise artists what they

need to survive and create a fun, inclusive, safe environment,” Foster-Lee says. As for how TPP Events picks the bands, Foster-Lee again sells himself a bit short. At first, he says he creates the schedule simply by researching and contacting bands that he likes, but there’s more to it than that. “We can approach this with a format that takes advantage of the fact that people mill in and out,” he says. “You can catch 20 minutes of a band you weren’t expecting, then you see who you actually came to see. I want to get people from the brewery scene to open up to more genres of music, and I want people to see the free-show model as a viable model.” But because Foster-Lee also wants to help the entire Upstate music scene grow, he keeps an eye on what other venues are doing so his shows don’t conflict with theirs. “If the Radio Room’s got something folky going on, I might do something more electronic,” he says. “We’re trying to direct traffic until the scene grows, and not step on each other’s toes. It should be about getting as many people as possible to see live music.”

When iconic rock band Chicago brings its 2019 “An Evening With Chicago” tour to Greenville later this month, it’ll mark 52 years of nonstop touring for one of the most successful rock groups in history. Best known for its classic horns and vocalists, the band will be playing some of its greatest hits in a 2.5-hour show at the 2,000-plusseat concert hall at the Peace Center. Chicago is a powerhouse of a band, selling more than 100 million records in its 52 years with thousands of concerts, 36 albums (25 of them platinum), and a documentary film. Surprisingly, the band has never missed a concert date in those 52 years. “We have a reputation for showing up,” says Lee Loughnane, one of the band’s founding members. Loughnane says the band’s longevity is due to the “commitment of its members and that they just like playing music. It’s a cooperative effort,” he says. “We try to make each night an event and make every show the best it can be so that way people remember it. We would probably play if the places were empty, but thank God the places are still filling up.” The band was formed in 1967, originally going by the name Chicago Transit Authority. In 1970, the band’s members shortened

their name to Chicago. Chicago’s success is partly due to the band’s tenacity. “We keep our nose to the grindstone,” says Loughnane. “No matter what you’ve done, it’s what are you doing next.” Loughnane refers to himself as a “utility guy” with the band. While his main job is to play trumpet, he says he has been fortunate to do “pretty much everything I want to do and much more than I ever thought I’d be able to or allowed to do.” As Loughnane looks back, he says he’s most proud of “the legacy we have put together and continue to play for people.” “I love being able to do what we do and what I do with it,” he says. “I tell people all the time I could think of a lot worse thing to do with my life than what I’m doing.” What’s next for the band? “Right now, we’re powering through the touring season,” Loughnane says. “We hope our second album will be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame [Chicago’s first album, “Chicago Transit Authority,” was inducted in 2014]. There really hasn’t been time for anything else. We’re chomping at the bit to play and we’re looking forward to having some fun -so be ready.”

Horizon Records, 2-A W. Stone Ave., Greenville F R E E  | 8 6 4 - 2 3 5 -79 2 2 A showcase of Seth Walker featuring “Are You Open?” — Walker’s just-out album that was once again made in collaboration with Jano Rix.

When we last heard from singer/songwriter Seth Walker, it was on 2016’s “Gotta Get Back,” an album that rose to No. 6 on Billboard’s blues charts and found the North Carolina-born songsmith delving into his own family ties along with the jazz and blues of New Orleans. The “Gotta Get Back” album was Walker’s ninth, and some critics said it was also his best. But as successful as the album was, both he and producer/multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix (best known for his work with The Wood Brothers) felt that it was a little too -- in Walker’s words -- “buttoned up.” “‘Gotta Get Back’ was a pretty ‘arranged’ record,” he says, adding that the album left him longing to do something different and less formal the next time. Which brings us to “Are You Open?” -- Walker’s just-out album that was once again made in collaboration with Rix. The production and instrumentation are far sparer this time, and every track, even the solo acoustic ballads, has an infectious, propulsive groove that some of the songs on “Gotta Get Back” didn’t have. That’s largely because Walker changed up his songwriting approach for his 10th album and based the tracks on grooves instead of chord patterns or lyrics. “I did some things for this record that I’d never done before,” he says. “I just

holed up and created all kinds of rhythms and layered things. In fact, ‘Inside’ [the album’s second track] came from a sound check that I recorded on my phone, just to save for later thinking it might be good for a song.” Walker says his new rhythm-based songwriting method was part organic and part intentional. “I do vividly remember asking myself questions like, ‘What are you going to do this time? Can you think outside of your norm and challenge yourself and your listeners?’” he says. “It was a mindset, and the songs stemmed from that.” As for the lyrics, Walker, who will play an in-store album-release show with his band at Horizon Records in Greenville on Saturday, says that as he wrote them, a concept emerged. Most of the words on “Are You Open?” take their cue from the title, exploring themes of artistic and personal receptiveness and vulnerability. “I didn’t plan it at all,” he says. “I just wrote the tunes and they came out that way and I was like, ‘Man, I guess I’m doing some introspection these days.’ The album deals with the idea of, ‘Are you open to what’s inside of you?’ I don’t know exactly how to sum it up, but I guess it’s finding and speaking your truth.”

TUK TUK THAI & VIETNAMESE KITCHEN New restaurant opens in Taylors with authentic menu n story by ARIEL TURNER | photos by WILL CROOKS

The Asian fusion fast casual restaurant concept has been done, and overdone, yet will continue to exist in a variety of combinations because the typical American palate isn’t offended by bulgogi (Korean) and pad Thai gracing the same menu, or even the same dish. The many amalgamations, merging various Asian cuisines, appeal

to our salty and sweet-loving sensibilities – authentic or not. At the newly opened Tuk Tuk Thai and Vietnamese Kitchen in Taylors, however, the term “fusion” applies only to the co-owners’ business and personal plans, and less to the menu itself.

York, and Nattha “Apple” Waiyawut, the granddaughter of one of the first Thai restaurant owners in Greenville, have joined their culinary backgrounds and love of their families’ authentic recipes to open a restaurant that represents both cuisines as they were intended.

Grilled Honey Lemongrass Vermicelli, choice of grilled chicken, pork or beef marinated with honey and lemongrass for $11.

Lam is quick to say their menu is not, in fact, fusion, but rather both gastronomies are featured proudly side-byside, flavors distinct and intact. To reinforce Lam’s chops (pun intended), two of his families’ recipes from their New York restaurant, Saigon Kitchen, were chosen for inclusion in “The World’s Best Asian Noodle Recipes: 125 Great Recipes from Top

TUK TUK THAI & VIETNAMESE KITCHEN

Chefs” with a foreword by Iron Chef Thailand chef Ian Kittichai. Both of them – chicken vermicelli and Saigon hot and sour soup – are family recipes and on the menu at the new restaurant. After 15 years’ worth of experience, six of those in the kitchen at Saigon Kitchen, Lam decided to move south for a change of pace and landed in the kitchen at Basil Thai, downtown Greenville. There, he met Waiyawut, who immigrated to the United States from Thailand about two years ago with a brand new engineering degree. Without a year of work experience on the resume, she wasn’t eligible for any open positions, so she took her first kitchen job working at Lemongrass Thai Restaurant and eventually Basil Thai. “It opened another world I didn’t have before,” she says. Once the two met, they began dating, and Waiyawut expressed her desire to open a restaurant, as her grandmother had done with King & I Thai in Greenville years ago. Having plenty of experience in both restaurant operations and the kitchen, Lam was game. “I kinda had it in my mind but didn’t think it would come to fruition,” Lam says of his plan to open his own restaurant before meeting his partner. Lam says in the first two weeks open, they were pleasantly surprised by the number of repeat customers and how many of them were Vietnamese. That’s the vote of confidence they were looking for.

NEW TO THE SCENE

East meets West cocktails

Bacon Brothers Public House bartenders have switched up the cocktail menu with a surprising-for-the-location twist: Asian-inspired beverages. Fans of the former Dive ‘n’ Boar Gastropub where LTO Burger Bar is now may remember the “Shut Up & Drink Your Peas” from mixologist Chase Orsini-Liberatore in 2016. Chase and many of his memorable cocktails have found their way to Bacon Bros., and this is one of the newest additions. Creating the perfect shade of green, the ingredients are Hat Trick Botanical Gin, St. Germain, sugar snap peas, wasabi cordial, lemon. Don’t let the idea of drinking peas scare you – one taste and you’ll agree we should have been doing it all along. Also new to the menu via bartender Matt Flowers are Antiku (Kaiyō Japanese Whisky, Macallan 12, Giffard Lichi-Li, Salers Aperitif, lychee gummy) and the Darjeeling Limited (Plantation XO 20th Anniversary Rum, Rammazzotti, garam masala cordial, pineapple, lime). The menu even includes an Indian-inspired mocktail from Chase called Rama Sita (curried mango shrub, spicy ginger beer, candied mango).

T R I F E C TA

Bourbon, beef, and bacon Now that’s a trifecta worth noting. Rick Erwin’s West End Grille is hosting Woodford in the Wild, a five-course dinner with bourbon pairings on March 26, 6:30 p.m. Cost is $85++ per person. On the menu you’ll find Linz tenderloin, crispy pork belly, a burger with pimento cheese a side-by-side wet and dry-aged Linz Heritage Angus, and a Woodford soaked cherry bread pudding. Woodford pairings by course will be Woodford Reserve Select, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, Woodford Reserve Rye & Thomas Creek Trifecta, Woodford Reserve Straight Malt, and Woodford Oat Grain. To reserve your spot, call 864-479-8983. The restaurant is located at 648 S. Main St. and offers valet parking.
