Justin Hadel, an adoptions counselor at Greenville County Animal Care, with Jack Sparrow, the Great Dane.

Five years ago, Greenville County Animal Care was a death sentence for four out of 10 dogs and cats taken there. Now, the county-operated open admission center is about one more adoption a day away from achieving no-kill status. “Not all animals that come here are adoptable, but the idea of having to euthanize one that is healthy and adoptable because of space is not acceptable,” said Paula Church, community relations coordinator for Greenville County Animal Care. A 90 percent lives-saved rate qualifies as no-kill for open admission shelters, those that have no weight, behavior, breed, age or health restrictions for incoming animals. The other 10 percent are not adoptable because of health, quality of life, or because serious behavioral issues make them a danger to the community. That goal seemed impossible in 2014 when the shelter was euthanizing 53 percent of the cats it took in and 21 percent of the dogs. In December 2015, the county shelter became a Target Zero Fellow and began implementing programs to lower its euthanasia rates in 2016. “We have a very clear roadmap for life saving,” Church said. “The progress being made has surprised us.”

LITTLE CATS, BIG DOGS

In addition to further developing a rescue and foster initiatives, Animal Care has implemented programs to address two populations that are difficult to care for or adopt out — kittens under one pound and large dogs over 40 pounds. A community cat diversion program in which outdoor cats are caught, spayed or neutered and returned back into the community where they lived has successfully reduced the population, Church said. In 2015, the year before the no-kill initiatives were started, the shelter took in more than 8,700 cats. Last year, the number was lowered to 3,137. “It worked for us. The only way to lower the number of homeless cats is to have fewer,” Church said. Carol Creech has fostered four litters of kittens for Animal Care, including a litter she picked up just last week. She has a room in her house dedicated as a kitten room, which she calls Moo Cat’s Finishing School, named after the cat that made her a foster fail (which is what animal people call someone who is fostering an animal only to adopt it themselves). “I’m too old to adopt a kitten because the kitten will outlive me,” she said. “I encourage retired folks to foster. It’s a way to still

SPARTANBURG ANIMALS

Susan Austin, who is president of Partners in Animal Care, a recently formed nonprofit charitable organization that supports GCAC, got involved with the shelter because of a lost cat that belonged to her son’s former girlfriend. For months afterward, Austin or one of her family members did a walk-through of the shelter. Although they didn’t find Willoughby, Austin said, “The end result was I ended up rescuing four cats.” She also rescued Odie, a high-heartworm positive cocker spaniel who was about to be euthanized. Odie, who died unexpectedly last month, “would have been a statistic,” she said. Instead, he was the best cocker spaniel she ever had. Now, she spends her time heading up a nonprofit to pay for the programs designed to help dogs and cats find their forever homes like Odie did. “Partners can help raise funds in ways the county can’t,” she said. Last year, its first full year of operation, Partners in Animal Care contributed $23,000 to GCAC. This year, it plans to launch a microchip voucher program at this year’s Tails and Trails race in May and it also plans to continue Yappy Hour, a fundraiser

al one-year renewal. “While it’s easy to speculate that more animals could be saved if we weren’t taking in Spartanburg County animals, the reality is that only about 2 percent more of all of the animals we help can actually be saved,” said

But we’re looking at how far we can go, and so we’ve decided that we’re better together.”

Work on the redevelopment of the site where Scott Towers once stood will begin this week, more than five years after the public housing high-rise for seniors and the disabled on Augusta Street was imploded. It has taken that long to put together the financing for the project, which is named The Preserve at Logan Park, said Ivory Mathews, executive director of the Greenville Housing Authority. “It’s a huge challenge to secure financing when you’re trying to develop affordable housing,” she said.

New construction would provide 113 housing units for seniors. Image by McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture.

The project includes construction of a 113-unit building for seniors and renovation of the existing 80 units at the Garden Apartments. Creative Builders will start demolition and earth-moving work this week, Mathews said. The Garden Apartments rehabilitation

should be complete by the end of the year, while the new construction should be finished summer 2020, she said. The bulk of the financing for the project is coming from multifamily tax-exempt bonds. The Housing Authority put in $2 million of its own money and cobbled together a collection of secondary financing sources to cover the rest of the $2.7 million, with the final $1 million coming from CommunityWorks and the newly created Greenville Housing Fund. “The timing was perfect,” she said. “If that resource had not been there, we would not have been able to go forward. We had already exhausted the secondary financing resources that we were aware of.” The work doesn’t include a third building that will have commercial space on the first floor and living space above. The building would have market-rate and workforce housing, Mathews said. No financing is in place for that building yet and the Housing Authority will hold community meetings as planning for that phase ramps up, she said. When the 200-unit Scott Towers was imploded, the Housing Authority promised it would put back those units in the city. GHA has built the 55-unit Manor at West Greenville and the 60-unit Heritage at Sliding Rock. With the 113 new units at the Scott Tower site, Mathews said, “Our promise to the community will be met.”

Teachers as heroes

Greenville County Schools honors two teachers for saving students n story & photos by ARIEL GILREATH

An Ellen Woodside Elementary School teacher went viral for her quick thinking when she spotted a former student biking down a four-lane highway in February — less than a week later, a teacher at Plain Elementary received widespread praise after she saved a student from choking in the cafeteria. Now, both of them have been honored by Greenville County Schools with a Miracle Worker Award. “Tonight it is our honor to present the Miracle Worker Award to two heroic Greenville County School teachers,” board member Roger Meek said at the Feb. 26 meeting. Meek said the award was created in 1996 to honor people who go “beyond the call of duty.”

MIRACLE WORKER AWARD

Greenville County Schools gives the Miracle Worker Award to those who go beyond the call of duty for students.

When first-grade teacher Keller Sutherland saw a young child riding his bicycle down U.S. Highway 25 while on her way home from work, she felt something was wrong and pulled over. She didn’t know until she approached the child that it was Cameron — a student she taught the previous year. “I flipped my car around, turned around, came up behind him and realized when I pulled up — ‘Oh my gosh, that’s Cameron,’” Sutherland said in a video recorded by the district. Cameron told her his dad was having a diabetic episode and was unconscious. Cameron initially tried to dial 911 but didn’t know the code to unlock his dad’s cellphone, so he decided to bike to his grandmother’s house to get help. “I went to get help at the neighbor’s, and neither of the neighbors were home, so I got on my bike and tried to go to my grandma’s,” Cameron said in the video. Sutherland was able to call emergency services for Cameron’s dad and get him back home.

It’s Never Too Late toEarn Your GED!

After the incident, Ellen Woodside broadcast a news program at the school showing its students how to call 911 on Android and iPhones when they’re locked without having to use a passcode. “I was just thankful God placed me there and had a familiar face for Cameron,” Sutherland said. Five days later, second-grade Plain Elementary teacher Tina Hamilton was approached by her student, Dorian Diaz, who was choking on a piece of ham in the cafeteria. “I was eating my Lunchable,” Dorian said in a video interview recorded by the district. “The ham is my favorite thing — sometimes I just eat the ham — and I choked on it.” Hamilton said she felt a moment of panic before remembering the district training videos that show how to do the Heimlich maneuver. “I could tell his face was red, he was clearly scared, and I just felt like something was wrong,” Hamilton said in the video. “I tried to talk with him and he couldn’t speak back, and at that moment I knew I had to do something.” Hamilton said she and Dorian both cried after she dislodged the food stuck in his throat. “I really love Mrs. Hamilton,” Dorian said. “Teachers sometimes have to be like an adult — well they are, but sometimes they feel like parents.” Cameron and Dorian both showed up with their families to the school board meeting where Sutherland and Hamilton were honored with the Miracle Worker Awards.

EDUCATION OVERSIGHT CONCERNS GCS board supports disbanding education agency n story by ARIEL GILREATH

The Greenville County Schools board of trustees will send a letter of support to the South Carolina Legislature for a bill that would disband the Education Oversight Committee. The board’s members have long been critical of the EOC — in 2017, they approved a resolution calling on the Legislature to dissolve the agency. The EOC is a state government agency created in 1998 to monitor, implement, and suggest changes regarding the Education Accountability Act and the Education Improvement Act. The committee consists of five members with business experience, five members with education experience, and seven legislators or their designees. The state superintendent is also an ex-officio member who isn’t allowed to vote. The 2017 resolution from Greenville County Schools cited several concerns board members have with the agency — primarily

that the committee’s role has expanded from an oversight body to a governing one. “The EOC is often in conflict with the vision and recommendations of the duly elected South Carolina Superintendent of Education…,” the resolution said. The board’s letter of support is aimed at two bills introduced in the state House of Representatives and the Senate that would dissolve the EOC and distribute its responsibilities to the state Department of Education and the state Board of Education. “This has become significantly more important now because of yesterday,” GCS board member Derek Lewis said at a meeting in February. “Where the elected, state superintendent of education recommended changes to the report card and the EOC dismissed all of her recommended changes and said, ‘You’re going to have to wait three years before we’re going to do any changes.’” T:10”

FOR US, IT’S NOT A PERSONAL THING, IT’S ABOUT CLARIFYING THAT THE ELECTED INDIVIDUALS SHOULD BE THE ONES WHO REALLY MAKE THE DECISIONS IN OUR STATE.” DEREK LEWIS

GCS board member

Lewis was referencing an EOC meeting where Superintendent Molly Spearman recommended several changes to the rating system on the state report cards. House Speaker Jay Lucas and the EOC disagreed with her recommendations, saying they would reduce accountability and work counter to the education reform bill Lucas filed in January. Members of the Greenville County Schools board unanimously approved sending a letter of support for the bills that would dissolve the EOC. “We again have this huge conflict between the person that was elected by the people of South Carolina to make decisions and a group of unelected people who have more authority on education policy than that individual does,” Lewis said. “So, for us, it’s not a personal thing; it’s about clarifying that the elected individuals should be the ones who really make the decisions in our state.”

EVERYONE FEELS THAT THE BEST DAYS OF THE CLIFFS ARE AHEAD.

The Cliffs entities previously owned by Florida-based Arendale Holdings LLC. South Street is The Cliffs communities’ third owner. South Street will oversee development, management, operations, sales and marketing for The Cliffs and The Cliffs Clubs in what South Street partner Chris Randolph says is a long-term, value-add investment strategy. Working alongside The Cliffs’ current leadership team, South Street has a comprehensive development

plan that includes additional amenities and future neighborhood development across The Cliffs’ Mountain, Lake and Asheville regions. “Everyone feels that the best days of The Cliffs are ahead,” says David Sawyer, president and managing partner, The Cliffs Clubs. Sawyer says he is thrilled with the ownership change and looks forward to future efforts to appeal to multiple generations. Randolph says their strategy of experiential marketing that has been hugely successful for South Street on Kiawah Island will be the focus of The Cliffs communities moving forward. They will be considering a hospitality component, such as a rental program to allow prospective buyers to fully experience the amenities the communities have to offer. “Once you’re there, it sells itself,” Randolph says. South Street managing partner Patrick Melton says their investment strategy focusses on the second home and resort communities in the Carolina mountains and the coast, where unprecedented migration continues to occur. With more than 50 years of combined experience, South Street has a track-record of success in the luxury resort residential development world. Most notably in 2013, the firm acquired Kiawah Partners, the master developer of Kiawah Island.

Anthony Ray Hinton who spent 30 years on death row spoke at Furman n story by SARAH BOURLAKAS | photo provided by FURMAN UNIVERSITY

He spent 30 years living in a 5-by-7 cell on death row for a crime he did not commit. Anthony Ray Hinton was wrongly convicted in Alabama in two capital murders. Hinton was exonerated in 2015 after more than a decade of litigation. He is the 152nd person exonerated from death row since 1983. Hinton, now 62, still lives in Alabama. His new memoir, “The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row,” tells his story. The book captured worldwide attention and was the summer 2018 selection for Oprah’s Book Club. Hinton recently shared his story with an audience of over 1,500 at Furman University. He spoke to students and the broader Greenville community about America’s mass incarceration. Hinton said we have a flawed justice system. “I don’t want to see no human being, regardless of race, regardless of gender -- I don’t want to see no one in any state go through what I went through simply because of our poor judicial system.” Motivated by thousands telling him

to put his words on a page, he hopes “The Sun Does Shine” will bring people together. “I don’t want it to change your mind. I want it to change your heart,” Hinton said. “I want it to change the way you think about the death penalty and about forgiveness.” Above all, Hinton said he wants to teach compassion. “No matter what one does, one deserves compassion,” he said. “Just as you teach hate, you can teach love.”

Paying for plastic? Greenville councilman wants city to consider plastic bag fee

PLAYERS

n story by CINDY LANDRUM

Greenville City Councilman Russell Stall is exploring the possibility of the city imposing a plastic bag fee. Thirteen cities and counties in South Carolina, most along the coast, have banned the bags, citing concerns about litter and water pollution. “I don’t think a ban would work here,” Stall said. But a fee could reduce the number of plastic bags consumers use and keep litter down, he said. “When the Reedy River floods, you can see how big a problem plastic bags are,” he said. Tina Belge, executive director of Keep Greenville County Beautiful, said that in some places, fees have reduced plastic bag usage by as much as 80 percent. Belge, who said her group is also working with Keep Travelers Rest Beautiful to study plastic bag fees, said grocery stores Lidl and Aldi already charge for bags. The Isle of Palms was the first municipality in South Carolina to ban plastic bags. Since then, coastal Charleston, Folly Beach, Beaufort County, the city of Beaufort, Bluffton, Port Royal, Hilton Head, Mount Pleasant, James Island, Surfside Beach, and Sullivan’s Island have enacted bans of their own. But the talk may all be for naught if some South Carolina lawmakers get their way, as the Legislature is considering banning cities and counties from banning plastic bags. A similar attempt failed last year.

COMMERCIAL 7.7% I N C R E A S E

Greenville County residents will get to tell state Public Service Commission members next week what they think of Duke Energy’s proposed rate increase, one that has been criticized by some groups who say it penalizes lower energy users the most. The public hearing is scheduled for March 14 at 6 p.m. in the Greenville County Council chambers at County Square. Duke’s rate increase proposal would more than triple its residential basic facilities charge — a flat fee paid each month by each household — and reduce the per-kilowatt usage rate. The two are not separated on bills. The rate increase would take effect in June. In Duke’s application filed in November, Kodwo Ghartey-Tagoe, Duke’s South Carolina president, said the basic facilities charge increase was proposed


NEED TO KNOW

because “current rates significantly understate the current cost of service related to the customer component of cost.” If the proposal is approved, Duke’s residential basic facilities charge will increase from $8.29 per month to $28 per month. The application said that means customers would pay approximately 93 cents per day for facilities in place to serve them, regardless of how much electricity is used. Several groups and individual Duke customers have already written letters or submitted testimony in opposition of the proposal. John Howat, senior policy analyst at the National Consumer Law Center, said in testimony already filed with the PSC that increasing the basic facilities charge disproportionally harms low-income and low-volume consumers. He testified on behalf of the state NAACP, South Carolina Coastal Conservation League and Upstate Forever. In his testimony, Howat said low-income households and households headed by those over the age of 65 use less electricity than their counterparts, and that increased monthly fixed charges

“unfairly cause disproportionate harm and exacerbate pre-existing problems with electric-utility affordability and home-energy security faced by many of these households.” Justin Barnes, director of research with EQ Research, has testified that, if

IF DUKE’S RATE INCREASE REQUEST IS APPROVED, A RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMER USING 1,000 KWH WILL SEE HIS BILL INCREASE BY APPROXIMATELY

$15.57 PER MONTH. approved, the residential basic facilities charge would be the highest residential customer charge in the country among investor-owned utilities. He also testified they are based on a “fatally flawed methodology and veers away from traditional principles of rate design.”

Barnes testified the proposal would reduce the ability of customers to adopt solar energy and energy efficiency to manage their electric bills. If the rate increase is approved as proposed, Duke Energy Carolinas’ revenue will increase approximately $168 million, a 10 percent increase in annual revenue, according to the application. Duke says it needs the extra revenue to cover $62 million it has spent on coal ash cleanup, $152 million spent on new solar farms, $639 million spent to convert old coal plants like the Lee Steam Station in Anderson County to natural gas, $126 million to re-license hydroelectric dams, and $125 million to recover costs on the Lee Nuclear Station in Gaffney that was canceled two years ago. The increase would also allow Duke to reach a “return on equity” of 10.5 percent, the application said. Duke Energy Carolinas’ last rate change was in 2013.

OBITUARIES & MEMORIALS

Dr. James Earle Barnett

Sammy Boan

November 2, 1926 ~ February 21, 2019

February 10, 1952 ~ February 13, 2019

Dr. James Earle Barnett died in his home on February 21, 2019. An icon in the Greenville County medical community and devoted civic citizen, Dr. Barnett is survived by his daughters Lesha (John) Nix of Conyers, GA and Kimberly (Matt) Elliott of Greenville, SC; his daughter-in-law Annalynn Barnett of Greenville, SC; and his granddaughter Margaret Nix of San Francisco, CA. He is also survived by his brother George (Betty) Barnett of Easley, SC and many beloved sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews. Dr. Barnett was predeceased by his wife Alma Lee Barnett; daughter Melanie Ann Barnett; son James Earle Barnett Jr.; sister Frances (Lawrence) Buchanan; and brother Charles Barnett. Born on November 2 1926, James was a fixture in the Marietta community where he worked on his family’s farm with his three siblings. He graduated Slater-Marietta High School (class of 1943) and entered Clemson University for one and a half years where he played on the Clemson Basketball team and trained in the Reserve Officer Training Corps. In 1945, he joined the United States Army and served in the first occupational forces in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Upon returning home, he re-entered Clemson University and finished pre-med in 1949. His sense of adventure was cultivated in the Pacific, and after graduation, James decided to venture on a grand 11,000 mile journey to drive the newly paved Alaskan Highway with his dear friends and their 18-month old baby. This trip became a source of infinite stories of his resourcefulness and scrappiness. In 1950, James married Alma Lee Murray and immediately moved to Charleston, SC for James to attend the Medical University of South Carolina. Following his internship in Greenville, SC, the couple settled in Travelers Rest and Dr. James Barnett began his work as a family physician with Doctors Landrum McCarrell and John Holliday. Serving many generations of Greenville County residents, Dr. Barnett was known for his meticulous and thorough care, as well as a keen eye for early detection of life threatening diseases. Over the next decade, Dr. Barnett’s devotion to his patients and the community inspired him to become involved in local politics. After noticing that his patients were becoming

gravely ill due to no sewer system and limited water lines, Dr. Barnett began petitioning for change. As a result, he ran for Mayor of Travelers Rest in 1969 on the platform of bringing much needed infrastructure - specifically a sewer system and clean water - to all parts of the community. During his two terms in office, he was successful in achieving his goal, and in the process, he passionately paved the way for the YMCA, the Travelers Rest Library and the Greenville Hospital System outpost - all to be realized after his terms in office. Given his focus on clean water, he was appointed and served on the governing board of the Western Carolina Regional Sewer Authority for 19 years, the last 5 years as chairman. Dr. Barnett continued to invest in his community throughout his lifetime. He was a longtime member and leader in the Travelers Rest United Methodist Church (TRUMC) and served on the Blue Ridge Council Boy Scouts of America, along with many other civic organizations within the community. His passion for Clemson - especially Clemson football - never diminished, and he spent over 40 years as a stands’ doctor at Clemson Memorial Stadium. After 50 years of practicing family medicine, Dr. Barnett retired at the age of 76 to Marietta, SC with Lee. Investing time in his favorite hobbies including auto-repair, gardening and woodworking at his one-man sawmill, he also found time to become involved in his Marietta community. Additionally, he spent the next 10 years caring for Lee who suffered from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. In 2018, to honor Dr. Barnett’s decades of service to Greenville County, the SC General Assembly renamed the US 276 (Greer Highway) and SC 288 (Pumpkintown Highway) intersection in Marietta in his honor. It is fitting that these roads lead to the patients and the mountains he so loved. The family would like to extend their deep gratitude to the committed caregivers and friends who lovingly devoted themselves to Dr. Barnett every day over the past several years. Funeral services were held Monday, February 25 at TRUMC at 3:00 p.m. The family received friends prior to the service at 1:30 p.m. Burial was held at Ebenezer Baptist Church Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Travelers Rest United Methodist Church, 19 S Main St, Travelers Rest, SC 29690 Online condolences may be expressed to the family at www.howzemortuary.com. Howze Mortuary, Travelers Rest, SC was in charge of arrangements.

Otis Samuel Boan, Jr., “Sammy”,67, died peacefully at his home on Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Sammy was born on February 10, 1952 in Bennettsville, SC, and grew up in Cheraw, SC. He was the son of the late Otis Samuel Boan, Sr. and Maxine Hendrick Boan. Sammy was a graduate of Cheraw High School and the University of South Carolina. He retired in 2017 from the family business in the Consumer Finance Industry. He was a board member of American Services, Inc., a company co-founded by his late father. Sammy served his community as a South Carolina State Senator for two years. He was the former president of the Greenville Touchdown Club, gave generously to the GHS Children’s Hospital and the Make-aWish Foundation, and loved his new church home at St. Paul’s Anglican Church. Sammy’s greatest love was his family. He was affectionately known as PaPa to his grandchildren: Elle, Mary Margaret, Virginia, and Lucy. He enjoyed cooking, spending time at Lake Hartwell and his hometown of Cheraw, entertaining friends, and Gamecock football. He is survived by his wife, Ellen Rushing Boan, and their children, Kimberly Howard (Billy) and Blair Boan (Miranda), and four grandchildren, all of Greenville, SC. Sammy is also survived by many loving family members and friends, all of whom meant the world to him. Sammy and his family would like to thank his medical team in Atlanta and in Greenville, especially his caregivers Trish Pierce and Elaine Wilson, and his nurse Paige Horton. Visitation was held Friday, February 15, 2019 from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at Thomas McAfee Funeral Home, Downtown, 639 North Main Street, in Greenville, SC. The funeral service was held Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, 304 East Camperdown Way, in Greenville, SC. A private entombment was held. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Paul’s Anglican Church, 304 East Camperdown Way, Greenville, SC 29601, or the Children’s Hospital of the Greenville Health System, 701 Grove Rd., Greenville, SC 29605.

OPINION

Mills Mill trees should be a valued link of Greenville’s past and future

presents

n by COURTNEY TOLLISON, PH.D.

As an historian, former member of the city’s Design and Preservation Commission, and former resident of Mills Mill, I was deeply disappointed to learn of plans to destroy the cedar trees at Mills Mill. These trees represent an important moment in southern textile history, when the threat of labor union activity nationally prompted mill owners to place increased emphasis on the “health and happiness” of mill operatives, which included efforts to develop attractive, meaningful, and entertaining community amenities. Greenville entrepreneur Otis P. Mills opened Mills Manufacturing Company in 1897. When Mills died, his son-in-law Walter Moore became the mill’s owner. Encouraged by the national City Beautiful movement, prominent Greenvillians established the Municipal League of Greenville and commissioned a report, titled “Beautifying and Improving Greenville, South Carolina.” To help guide the plan’s implementation, City Council created a Park and Tree Commission in 1913. Moore became involved with the city’s new commission. Amidst similar efforts from Greenville’s other textile magnates, Moore hired a full-time landscape architect from England to beautify the grounds of Mills Manufacturing Company and its surrounding community, which most certainly included planting the beautiful cedar trees. Think of all that those century-old trees have endured: approximately one hundred springs, summers, falls, and winters in which the people living alongside those trees experienced world wars, a presidential assassination and resignation, space exploration, and the evolution of our community. When those trees were planted, women could not vote in presidential elections, Jim Crow laws mandated racial segregation, and the sounds of our community were radically different. Destroying those trees would drastically cut short their natural life span. Over a period of 100 plus years, people do not endure, but objects, historic structures, trees, and other features of the landscape can

and do, if man allows them. Cutting those trees down sends a message to our community that what makes us distinctive, the buildings and elements of the landscape that provide a sense of continuity across time, are not valued. Destroying this enclave also flies in the face of current trends in urban landscape development. As development spreads and becomes more dense, particularly near city

Mr. Brown is a nationally recognized designer whose understanding of place drives his creativity. He values a place for what it has been, what it is, and what it could be, instead of cleaning the palate to infuse a radically new identity that lacks roots. Thankfully, investors and developers in the late twentieth-century saw the potential in repurposing the centuryold Mills Mill. The elements of the landscape plan that remain bring historical context to the building and need to be preserved as well. I urge the developers to consider embracing these trees not only as a unique and meaningful asset of their development, but also as a link to the community of which they hope to become a part.

Make a statement with a repurposed planter

As the weather is starting to warm and we’re getting some sunny days, it’s possible to picture spring coming with blooming flowers. But if you’re like many people, you may not have a ton of time for gardening. Below are four easy options for repurposing objects you likely have around the house into unique planters. Sources: gardeningknowhow.com, homebnc.com

1 TREE STUMP Turning a fallen log or an old tree stump from an eyesore into a planter with relative ease. If the log or stump is already soft, you’re ready to clear out another few inches and plant. If not, use a sharp object (a shovel or an axe should work) to create the space needed. A bonus: the decaying wood provides nutrients.

2 BARREL A wine or brewing barrel makes a rustically beautiful planter. If you don’t have one on-hand, you can buy them at most garden centers or hardware stores. If you are repurposing the barrel, you’ll need to drill drainage holes at the bottom and add wire mesh before planting.

3 WHEELBARROW A wheelbarrow is probably the most accessible yard tool to repurpose. Like the barrel, you’ll need to drill drainage holes and add mesh wire. Add a coat of paint if you want your wheelbarrow to have an accent color. There’s also the added convenience of easily moving the wheelbarrow planter around the yard.

4 BICYCLE For a quirkier repurposed planter that has a whimsical feel, find a bicycle with a front and back basket that can become planters. If you’re into a rustic or shabby-chic look, a vintage bicycle will serve you well. This option is mobile by design and can be moved if you want to change your yard up.

Live your life, Love your home.

T

he tragic sinking of the Titanic in 1912 continues to fascinate people 107 years later. The story will come alive in Greenville at Bob Jones University’s “Titanic: The Musical” for its South Carolina premiere. With about a 65-member cast starring six Broadway guest artists, the musical tells the stories of multiple passengers aboard the Titanic on its maiden voyage from England to New York. Director Darren Lawson, dean of BJU’s School of Fine Arts and Communication, decided about two years ago to bring the show to Greenville. “There’s not really one main character,” Lawson says. “Many of the people that are represented in the production were real people.” In contrast, the movie “Titanic,” which premiered eight months after the musical, focuses on two fictional characters. “The musical version doesn’t isolate one or two characters, but rather focuses on a host of characters throughout the crew, first, second, and third class,” Lawson says. “The musical does a better job, in my opinion, of capturing the broader story of what happened that fateful evening.” “Titanic: The Musical” offers audiences an inside look at various lives. “When the disaster hits, it really didn’t matter what class they were in — they all died,” he says. The stage will be transformed into the ship’s hull with towers and a crow’s nest, along with projections to recreate the tragic scenes. Some 1,500 passengers were killed the night the Titanic struck the iceberg.

Bruce Ismay TONY MOWATT as Thomas Andrews “Everybody knows what happened with the Titanic, and there’s no surprise ending in this production,” Lawson says, “but I think people can come and find out that the people on that boat were just like us.” Watching the musical and knowing the people who died, Lawson says, makes the event even more tragic. The five-time Tony Award-winning musical blends music and story to create an emotional journey back in time.

THE MUSICAL VERSION DOESN’T ISOLATE ONE OR TWO CHARACTERS, BUT RATHER FOCUSES ON A HOST OF CHARACTERS THROUGHOUT THE CREW, FIRST, SECOND, AND THIRD CLASS.

Through a partnership with the Titanic Museum Attraction of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, actual artifacts will be on display in the Rodeheaver lobby. One especially interesting artifact was excavated from the ocean floor amidst the Titanic wreckage 75 years later — the leather music portfolio from the head of the band. Titanic Museum owner John Joslyn and wife Mary Kellogg-Joslyn will attend the opening night of “Titanic” in Greenville. John Joslyn co-led the 1987 exploration of the Titanic wreckage, where he recovered many artifacts in his 32 dives. “I’m really excited that they’re going to be coming and partnering,” Lawson says. Also through the partnership, guests will receive boarding passes with real passengers’ biographies on them. “ I t ’ s going to be like typical grand, big productions that we’re kind of known for,” he says. “It’s hard to see a production like this that’s going to be done on this scale.” VICTORIA RICHARDS as Marian Thayer

“[The central theme] is that despite our technological advances, those technological advances are still built by flawed humans,” he says. Lawson says the musical shows audiences the humanity of the tragedy. “It says, take the small ship and you put everybody in it, and you find out that everybody really is equal in the end.”

FAIRYTALES COMING TO LIFE

Venture ‘Into the Woods’ with Centre Stage’s upcoming musical n story by MELODY CUENCA | photo by WILL CROOKS

‘Into the Woods’

MARCH 14­ - APRIL 7

Centre Stage, 501 River St., Greenville $ 2 2 - $ 3 5  | W W W. C E N T R E S TA G E . O R G Based on multiple whimsical fairytales all intertwined, this Tony Award-winning musical explores what happens after happily ever after.

“Witches can be right, giants can be good.” Greenvillians can embark on a magical journey to see well-known fairytales intertwine in Tony Award-winning musical “Into the Woods” at Centre Stage. The musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim tells the tale of a baker and his wife who are childless due to the curse of a once-beautiful witch. The couple take a trip to the forest for magical ingredients to reverse the spell. Throughout their musical journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, charming princes, and Jack. Soon, the couple discover everyone is wishing for something. “In the process, we find out that what is wished for is not always what we

want, and that there is always a story after ‘happily ever after,’” director Christopher Rose says. The main theme of “Into the Woods” is captured in Act II when characters sing “you are not alone” to one another, says Rose, calling the truth a doubleedged sword. “On one hand there is comfort in the words. We have people around us who can support us in our endeavors and in life’s highs and lows,” Rose says, “but on the flip side, it means we have a responsibility that is greater than ourselves. We cannot act in a spirit of radi-

cal individualism, because we ‘are not alone.’” “Into the Woods” aims to deliver delightful music packed with meaning. “Sondheim’s works are so lush and so endlessly filled with cleverly hidden themes, nuances, and symbolism that one could fill books with the treasures to be found,” Rose says. Playing the role of the witch, Taylor Marlatt describes her character as a complicated lady. “Of course it is easy to immediately perceive her as ‘wicked’ and ‘evil,’ but there’s so much more to her than what is on the surface,” she says.

The witch is portrayed as an eccentric character who makes bad choices, but she’s hurt from the wrong done to her by others. “She’s insecure, obsessive, and ultimately the most honest character in the show,” Marlatt says. “I like to think of her as a semimoral compass. She just goes about everything the wrong way.” Audiences are meant to feel that they’ve been transported into the woods on an epic journey. “Because our space is so intimate, audiences will truly feel like they’re a part of the story made up of some of the finest talent in Greenville,” she says. “The voices are pristine, the set is breathtaking, and the acting is topnotch.”

One of the coolest things you can find on any healthy music scene is local musicians who are fans of other local musicians. When the sense of competitiveness that can arise from fighting for the same space on the concert stage or the recording studio takes a back seat to mutual respect, the community as a whole can benefit. Happily, there are some great examples of that respect on our scene, including the mutual admiration society going on in the Upstate right now, between the heavy-rock band Finding Freedom and the psychedelic-folk outfit Brother Oliver. Their friendship has created an inspired collaboration in a song called “What Will Be Will Be. In its original version, first released on Brother Oliver’s self-titled 2017 debut album, the song is a passionate folkrock tune with a soaring chorus and a delightfully simple guitar hook that WILL NOT leave your head once it’s in

there. As performed by siblings Andrew and Stephen Oliver, the song is fueled by some of the most stirring, relatable lyrics you’re likely to hear on the local music scene.

“God please speak to me,” Andrew pleads as the song opens. “I’m having trouble listening/ I’ve spent my life searching to find there’s nothing missing/ God please speak to me.” It’s a standout track, and it immediately caught Finding Freedom singer/ guitarist Rob Lindblad’s attention. “The lyrics in that song really spoke to me, especially in that first verse,” he says. But Lindblad both loved the song and immediately thought it could use a little something extra. “I thought, ‘This song needs to be heavier,’” he says with a laugh. “We need to ROCK this song out.” So Lindblad and his band got to it, creating an anthemic, hard-rock version of “What Will Be Will Be,” turning it into a chugging, twin-guitar monster while still preserving the melody and main riff of the original. And once they had that cover version worked up, they decided to debut it in front of the song’s author, Andrew Oliver, at a house show to see what he thought of it. Oliver loved it so much that he joined in on vocals. “It warmed my heart, and some of the

stuff they did on that song was cooler than what we did with it,” Oliver says. But the best part of this story is what happened after that one-off performance. Oliver was so taken with Finding Freedom’s version that he offered to produce and mix a studio version of it at Nick Brown’s Greer Castle Recording Room. “It was an honor that they even wanted to cover it in the first place,” Oliver says, “so I was happy to help them with it.” And despite his original plan to serve as a strictly behind-the-scenes helping hand, Oliver ended up contributing some backing vocals to the song. And in addition to creating a kickass version of a great song, both Oliver and Finding Freedom see their collaboration as something bigger than just the song itself. “I don’t know what anyone else’s perspective is, but I’d like things like this to be more common,” Lindblad says. “I think it’s a really healthy thing,” Oliver adds. “We’re all guilty of having a competitive nature on the local scene, and that’s not healthy. This is the opposite of that.”

As a 20-something, Acen Herron, the singer, guitarist, and main songwriter for the Upstate band The Apartment Club, is all too familiar with the brevity of our modern attention spans when it comes to listening to music. So when he and his band were figuring out how they wanted to release a batch of recently recorded songs, they kept the average listener in mind. “We needed to decide whether we wanted to do one release or spread it out,” Herron says. “And I thought about the way I digest new music. I realized that if it’s an entire album, I’ll listen to it nonstop for like a week and then that’s it; I’m done. And that seems to be the way people take in music now. So we chose to put our songs out two at a time to let them sit a little bit in people’s minds.” So late last year, the band put out the first volume of a three-release series under the name “Doubt.” The songs were atmospheric, intense, midtempo workouts that took their time, unfurling waves of guitars and steady, heartbeat rhythms. The just-released second volume is heavier and more immediate; the production is cut a lot closer to the bone, and the tempos on its two songs, “Red Eye” and “Walnut St. Bridge,” are both faster and more complex.

Herron says the releases will eventually form a thematically linked trilogy, with the second volume representing the climactic musical moments before a calmer conclusion. “We wanted to start with an eerie, spacey feel on the first release,” he says, “and on this most recent release it’s faster, more uptempo songs. There’s more of an ambient feel on the first one, and that was a good fit; it was the way we wanted that story arc to start.” The band seems to instinctively respond to the ebbs and flows in Herron’s lyrics, either buoying him up with heavy full-band rock or falling away to leave him alone but for a skeletal guitar line.

SO WE CHOSE TO PUT OUR SONGS OUT TWO AT A TIME TO LET THEM SIT A LITTLE BIT IN PEOPLE’S MINDS.

ACEN HERRON

singer/songwriter The Apartment Club

It’s remarkably intuitive playing, especially for a band that didn’t exist when Herron wrote most of these songs in his bedroom while in college. “I reached out to my best friends because I booked a show and I needed help because I didn’t have a band,” he says. “To go from that to all of us writing songs and playing shows together is a dream come true.”

THE CRUCIBLE

by Arthur Miller

This classic tells the story of John Proctor’s wife, who’s accused of witchcraft in the town of Salem. Students will be cast in key roles. “‘The Crucible’ was a no-brainer as it is still relevant and has a lot of roles for teenagers,” said Mike Sablone, the Warehouse Theatre’s producing artistic director.

THE THANKSGIVING PLAY by Larissa FastHorse

Written by Native American FastHorse, this play tells societal truths through absurdly funny satire. A group of teachers creates a Thanksgiving pageant with hopes of not offending anyone, but they end up offending everyone. “Skewering political correctness and people with good intentions gone awry, it’s a rip-roaring comedy with teeth,” Sablone says.

Estranged from her family and working as a cleaning woman, Theresa wants to learn how to pray. She meets Matthew, a priest where she cleans, who forgot how to talk to God. “A small story that takes on enormous ideas but treats them with genuine love and affection, never becoming preachy or didactic,” Sablone says.

HAVANA KITCHEN

brings authentic Cuban food and atmosphere to Woodruff Road n story by ARIEL TURNER | photos by WILL CROOKS

Havana Kitchen, 1133 Woodruff Road, is open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight Friday, 9 a.m.-midnight Saturday, and 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday.

EMPANADAS

It’s 9 o’clock on Friday night. The 200-seat Havana Kitchen is buzzing with energy. The bar and two main dining areas are nearly full of guests enjoying traditional Cuban dishes like tostones, plantains, and whole fried red snapper. The six-piece Son del Callao Latin band entertains diners who are noticeably struggling to sit still in their seats. Resistance to the beat will eventually prove futile for some. After about 15 minutes, a couple of brave souls wind their way through the jam-packed dining room toward the open area in front of the band. They are clearly not first-time salsa dancers. Seated guests cheer and continue bobbing in the audience, many of the men looking nervous as their female counterparts reach for their hands to coerce them to the dance floor. After about 30 more minutes, several succeed, and half a dozen couples join in what has become a Friday night ritual at the restaurant that opened in December.

CUBAN VIBES

Frank Roman, co-owner, says this – the dancing, the cheering, and the looks of sheer joy on guests’ faces – is exactly what he and partner Lazaro Montoto envisioned when they set out to create an homage to their Cuban heritage in Havana Kitchen. Once the weather turns less rainy, Roman says he plans to take the party outside to host Miami-style block parties in the sizable parking lot to include even more people. The 7,200-square-foot restaurant from the owners of Tropical Grille opened about three months ago at 1133 Woodruff Road, which had been vacant since Mimi’s Cafe closed in 2014. The Woodruff Road construction other nearby restaurants have cited as detrimental to their business hasn’t seemed to have stunted Havana Kitchen’s ability to attract customers. Roman believes it’s because the restaurant fills a void in the Greenville restaurant community — combining traditional Cuban fare with the atmosphere and hospitality of a Miami family restaurant

CUBAN FL AN

M A R C H 14 in a mainstream environment that is approachable to non-Spanish speakers is, so far, unique in Greenville. And if guests come for the fiesta vibe, they likely stay for the authentic flavors that may be unfamiliar to the average Southern diner, but tasty enough to make stretching their palates a pleasure.

DELECTABLE DISHES

While it may go without saying, it’s worth noting: Cuban food and flavors are different from those of traditional Mexican cuisine. The basic premise, however, is similar — simple ingredients; bold, fresh flavors; and distinct processes for developing those flavors. Modern Cuban cuisine blends Spanish, African, and Caribbean cuisines. The Havana Kitchen menu is a reflection of the owners’ food memories from growing up in Miami.

For starters, the Tostones Sampler showcases those authentic flavors and processes. Three tostones, twice-fried plantain slices, are topped with three meats – ropa vieja (shredded beef brisket), lechon (pork), and picadillo (Cuban-style ground beef). Yucca (a starchy root vegetable) and plantains (savory bananalike fruit that must be cooked before it is eaten) are Cuban cuisine staples. The Havana Kitchen menu includes multiple preparations from fried to boiled as sides and components in various dishes. They are a must-try. The menu also features eight sandwich-

es, vegetarian dishes, numerous beef entrees of various preparation from pan-fried to grilled, pork three ways, the classic arroz con pollo and three additional chicken entrees, 10 sides, three salads, and soup. About half the menu is labeled gluten-free. The seafood, however, all sustainably

chorizo, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, calamari, and fish over seasoned rice ■ ■ FOR 2 PEOPLE, $29.99 ■ ■ FOR 4 PEOPLE, $54.99 wild-caught and sourced fresh, stands out. The whole fried red snapper, a Caribbean classic, is enough to share with the table, and the authentic Cuban paella with chorizo, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, calamari, and fish over seasoned rice is enough for twice as many people as the recommendation (for 2, $29.99, or for 4, $54.99). Traditional Cuban pastries and desserts are available all day, along with Cafe Bustelo espresso. As for the bar program, if more than two dozen whiskeys and bourbons at reasonable prices doesn’t pique interest, perhaps the 15 specialty mojitos will. Thirteen of them are available by the pitcher, proving, once again, that Havana Kitchen is designed to be a gathering place, not a solo dining venture.

Built in 1882, our versatile and sophisticated Loft will be dressed to impress to help you envision your big day. Vendors will be on site, and Peace Center event coordinators will be available to answer questions. Admission is complimentary and includes a welcome drink and light fare for tasting.

Stop Enabling and Start Empowering Where mentorship + incentives = Success

Hi, my name is Almon Robinson, and I would like to share a bit of my story to give someone else hope. Before joining Ripple of One, I found myself always approaching a dead end. I worked at Bojangles’ and I jumped from one restaurant job to the next with little or no stability or consistency. I didn’t have a vehicle, so getting to work was always a challenge — never really knowing who I would have to rely on the next day. I dropped out of school my 11thgrade year, so my options for work were slim. I was physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted from surviving paycheck to paycheck. I didn’t believe I would ever obtain my high school diploma, and I felt like I had little support to do so. I had lost hope for my future. One of the biggest differences I can see in myself is my determination and self-discipline! Ripple of One has really taught me how to have self-discipline through my mentorship team. I did not realize how crucial it was to budget every month — I honestly had never even thought about it before. Budgeting has been one of the best life skills I could have ever learned. I now know how to save my money because I learned how to budget! I have a savings account that I never had before. Ripple of One matches my saving up to $200 every month. I try to save $200 of my income to be able to get the highest match! I believe it is all about needs versus wants. In the past, I would have spent my entire tax return on whatever I wanted — I didn’t think twice about it. Since I joined Ripple of One, I actually took my refund and spent it on the things I really needed, and the rest went directly into my savings.

Spring is in the Air!

I feel so much more stable now because of the life skills I’ve learned from Ripple of One. If something unexpected happens I’m prepared because I have an emergency savings fund. I actually pay my bills on time and don’t spend money on the things that I know that I can’t afford. Many people think budgeting and saving sounds extremely difficult, but I believe it is mind over matter determination. My oldest child would always ask me to buy her toys every time we walked into a store because she saw how I used to spend money. Now, she watches me budget and save instead. I love the fact that I can now be a good role model to my kids, I can show them how to pay for the essentials and save for the unexpected. Ripple helped me go back to school to receive my high school diploma. I finally got it in February 2018 and am now enrolled in college for a nursing degree. I could not be more excited! I’m also getting ready to start a Ripple internship with an assisted living facility. Ripple pays my internship wage for the first 90 days to help me get my foot in the door. If I prove myself they will interview me to be under their payroll as an employee. This position will be great to have on my resume while going to school for nursing. I am so grateful for the opportunities, education and support Ripple of One has provided me so that I can confidently move forward with my life. I would have to say that the thing I am most happy about is the fact that I love the person I am becoming and the role model I am for my children. Ripple of One is a nonprofit organization that ‘Empowers families to move beyond government assistance and into their full God-given potential.
