DHEC suspends SC abortion clinics Gov. Haley ordered inspections in August APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
email@example.com The SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) met with the representatives of the Greenville Women’s Clinic Wednesday to discuss an order of suspension issued to the clinic last week. Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic in Columbia was also issued an order of suspension and DHEC issued a Report of Visit to Charleston Women’s Medical Center after finding more than two dozen violations at the abortion clinics. The suspensions were issued Sept. 11 following an Aug. 18 order by Gov. Nikki Haley to conduct inspections of the three abortion clinics operating in the state, which DHEC completed in early September. The Greenville and Columbia clinics must submit a plan of correction by Sept. 28, according to DHEC. The agency issued a $2,750 fine to the Greenville clinic, citing violations of the Woman’s Right to Know Act, emergency drugs
matching a contents list, handling of bio hazardous waste, missing information in records and labeling of infectious waste. The Greenville clinic may not operate until the fine is paid, a plan of correction is submitted, records of training for employees in policies and procedures are submitted and files and records are maintained properly, DHEC officials said. Representatives from the Greenville clinic met with DHEC Wednesday to discuss coming into compliance, said DHEC spokesperson Robert Yanity. The Columbia clinic was issued a fine of $7,500. DHEC did not cite any violations
“We will take immediate action to make any necessary corrections and will provide DHEC with evidence to refute allegations we know are incorrect.” Jenny Black, CEO of Planned Parenthood South Atlantic
for the Charleston clinic, but noted documentation errors that must be corrected. DHEC also cited two companies that transport waste for the Columbia and Greenville clinics, Stericycle and MedSharps. Violations included “insufficient documentation of waste disposal practices, failure to follow disposal protocol and improper disposal of products of conception,” according to DHEC. The agency’s infectious waste management staff is scheduled to meet with Columbia clinic representatives on Sept. 28 and 29, said Yanity. Greenville Women’s Clinic officials did not respond to request for comment by press time. Jenny Black, CEO of Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, said in a statement that the health and safety of patients was of utmost importance. “Since receiving the report last week, we have focused our efforts on reviewing issues raised in DHEC’s findings and rigorously verifying compliance with all state laws and regulations. We will take immediate action to make any necessary corrections and will provide DHEC with evidence to refute allegations we know are incorrect,” wrote Black.
“We take the findings of this investigation very seriously and will work together with each of these facilities to help get them into compliance as quickly as possible.” DHEC Director Catherine Heigel
The clinics and companies are required to meet with DHEC staff within 15 days to discuss violations, corrective action and potential civil penalties. According to DHEC, all three clinics were due for inspection this fall. “DHEC remains committed to ensuring that all clinics operating in South Carolina are safe and in compliance with state and federal laws,” said DHEC Director Catherine Heigel in a release. “We take the findings of this investigation very seriously and will work together with each of these facilities to help get them into compliance as quickly as possible.”

After the Charleston church shooting and subsequent removal of the Confederate flag off the South Carolina Statehouse grounds, several Clemson Faculty Senate past presidents renewed the call to rename Tillman Hall.
Telling the complete story Clemson trustees’ task force seeks input on how better to tell school’s history CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org Clemson University will launch a website next week to seek public input on how the school can best tell its complete history. Trustees formed a task force in July to develop recommendations on how to acknowledge the good and bad of the university’s history. The move came on the heels of the Mother Emanuel AME church massacre in Charleston and a student-led drive to remove the name of Benjamin Tillman, a founding trustee of the university and an unapologetic racist, from Clemson’s signature building on campus. A “Reclaim Old Main” march was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon from Howard’s Rock on the east side of the football stadium across campus to Tillman Hall, which was called Old Main until 1946. The task force’s recommendations will be made public and reported to the board by its February 2016 meeting. The task force was given five guiding principles: to explore multiple points of view inside and outside of the university; maintain a dialogue that is open, honest and respectful; acknowledge all aspects of history; create meaningful recommendations grounded in research and
evidence that result in actionable steps; and have a lasting impact. The task force will gather public input through a variety of meetings, listening sessions, conversations and written submissions. After the Charleston church shooting and subsequent removal of the Confederate flag off the South Carolina Statehouse grounds, several Faculty Senate past presidents renewed the call to rename Tillman Hall. As a lifetime trustee appointed in Thomas Green Clemson’s will and as an elected official – first as South Carolina governor and then as a U.S. senator – who funneled resources and revenue to the new school, Tillman played an instrumental role in the founding of Clemson University. But Tillman, who earned the nickname “Pitchfork Ben” for both his agricultural advocacy and for threatening to impale President Grover Cleveland on one, was a virulent white supremacist. He pushed Jim Crow laws and participated in the Hamburg Massacre, where six black men were killed by a white mob. While the task force completes its work, Clemson will push forward with several other diversity initiatives. The university has launched the second year of “Race and the University: A Continuing Conversation.” And on Saturday, the Clemson Brickmaking Project will be held beginning at 8 a.m. as a tribute to the predominantly African-American convict labor crew who made the bricks for the original campus buildings.

OPINION VIEWS FROM YOUR COMMUNITY, HEARD HERE
GHS must change as health care changes IN MY OWN WORDS
by Bill McCrary
I’ve worked in our business my entire life and have seen firsthand how economic cycles can crush some businesses while wholly reshaping others. Textiles is virtually unrecognizable from where it was even just 15-20 years ago, with many companies perishing while others – due to foresight, planning and extraordinary adaptability – are prospering. That same wave of change is buffeting health care, causing rapid consolidations and even some hospital shutdowns across the nation. Our business is in Spartanburg, but I’m proud to call Greenville home. I’ve watched Greenville Health System grow into one of the Southeast’s leading health care systems with unparalleled patient care and leading-edge research.
“…innovative partnerships are the backbone of a successful company.”
What’s also continued to grow, however, is the extraordinary vision and quality of its board of trustees. The board’s guidance has ensured that GHS is not only a health leader but also a community leader, with a community commitment that’s among the top in the state. Not only does GHS offer a safety-net hospital but also community initiatives as diverse as free medical clinics and extensive community outreach programs to nationally-recognized workforce development programs, a growing biomedical cluster and even the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail. The question, however, is how to carry that success into the future. Faced with unprecedented cost pressures, many hospitals across the nation are in flux. Building a stronger bottom line frequently means combining resources with other hospitals, with mergers – regardless of state or county lines – increasingly seen as a smart solution that strengthens patient care while eliminating costly duplication. Simply put, the current health care climate requires unprecedented need for partnerships with both community and other health care systems. These
“Simply put, the current health care climate requires unprecedented need for partnerships with both community and other health care systems.” partners will be both public and private since – in today’s economy in particular – businesses cannot exist in a vacuum. As the president and CEO of Spartanburg-based William Barnet & Son LLC, I can tell you firsthand how innovative partnerships are the backbone of a successful company. We have many in our 170-year history, and these have allowed us to survive and prosper. But “private-public” partnerships can also be as small as how each person decides to invest their philanthropic dollars. I and my wife Esta are proud to say we donated the seed money that helped spark a community investment in an expanded blood and marrow transplant program at GHS. More news will be
coming out about this in the next few weeks, but, because of this expansion, patients who previously had to leave the area for care can now stay here. Health care decisions should stay local, and great health care absolutely needs to be available locally. The GHS Board of Trustees – led by visionaries who have served at the highest levels of some of the largest companies in the country – last Tuesday proposed exploring an option that would preserve GHS as a public, not-forprofit safety-net system while also creating an overarching innovative framework that will keep health care decisions local while giving GHS the flexibility to partner with other hospitals and health systems across multiple communities. With this innovative strategy, the GHS Board of Trustees is helping ensure that GHS can continue its commitment to the community and stay strong. I realize that this proposal still in the early phases, with many details still to be worked out and evaluated. But I applaud GHS trustees, past and present, for their forward thinking.

Zero waste is achievable goal IN MY OWN WORDS
by Marcia Papin
You’ve heard of “Farm to Table” – now Greenville County is preparing to complete the cycle by going “Table to Farm.” Food materials tossed out by large and small businesses and even your family homes actually have great value,
and have an opportunity to become a key element in the economic and environmental strength of the Upstate. On Tuesday, Oct. 6, the S.C. Department of Commerce is hosting an “Upstate Food Recovery Networking Event” in Suite 400 at Greenville
County Square. The event, which begins at 10 a.m., is open to the public and features experts from around the state. Registration is required and is simple. Go to: sccomposting.eventbrite. com. Businesses, organizations and individuals in the
Upstate have become increasingly environmentally aware, creating demand for innovative ways to reach “zero waste” – when no trash is sent to landfills. Zero waste is a goal that is economical and efficient, where all discarded materials become resources for others to use. Here at the county, we want to help businesses focus on this goal.

with private and public partners, we can begin moving towards that lofty standard while also creating private sector jobs and boosting our economy. More than 20 percent of the waste in our local landfills comes from food residuals and yard trimmings. Instead of filling up space in landfills, these tossed-away materials, when used together, have the opportunity to play a vital role as feedstock in the evergrowing compost sector benefiting South Carolina’s many agriculture businesses. Targeting food waste is a priority for Greenville County. We have a Yard Waste Grinding facility at Twin Chimneys, and combining that asset with private sector food waste collectors and composters could dramatically increase recycling while also creating in-demand compost products. The county is working in collaboration with the state of South Carolina to foster its 40BY2020 Partnership Program, which has a goal of 40 percent recycling by 2020. To achieve this lofty goal we all need to work together. Private and public partnership can form the foundation, but much is left to do.
The first step is creating general awareness of what we call “food recovery.” Several prominent Upstate businesses are already aggressively and successfully executing food recovery programs. Michelin, Milliken and Greenville Health System are among those leaders, but many others may be unaware of how their goal of zero waste can also be an economic boon for the communities they serve. The county and state have valuable resources, both physical and educational, that we want to share. Greenville County is always interested in partnerships with businesses that foster expanded and improved services to the residential and business community. Together, we can do great things for our community. We can complete the cycle, creating an even more selfsufficient, sustainable and thriving Upstate.

She has served on the International Board for the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) since 2000.
What’s Right in Health Care GHS Named Screening Center of Excellence The Center for Integrative Oncology and Survivorship at the Cancer Institute of Greenville Health System has been named a Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) for its ongoing commitment to responsible lung cancer screening. GHS Radiology also was named a Screening Center of Excellence. Low-dose CT screening for lung cancer carried out safely, efficiently and equitably saves many lives. To learn more about GHS’ Lung Cancer Screening Program, call 455-1346. Upstate Schools Achieve Safe Sport School Status Forty-three high schools and middle schools throughout the Upstate are recipients of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School award. The award champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that provide safe environments for student athletes. The award reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention and treatment. GHS athletic trainers meet the sports medicine needs of more than 15,000 student athletes across the Upstate and were instrumental in helping the schools achieve this award.

Critical decisions on 9/11 Joe Dittmar shares lessons from surviving the south tower ASHLEY BONCIMINO | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org Eight minutes after Joe Dittmar walked out of the World Trade Center’s south tower, he heard the sound of twisting metal and crumbling concrete as it came tumbling down behind him. Fourteen years later, Dittmar said the experience reinforced his belief in good decision-making and positive energy. “Every decision is important, no matter how big or small one may seem,” said Dittmar, a 35-year veteran of the insurance in-
“To see furniture, paper, people being pulled out of the building against their will was a gruesome, terrible, awesome sight. … This wasn’t an Xbox game. This wasn’t a made-for-TV move. This was reality.”
WITH BENJAMIN JEFFERS
Pickens football coach, friend shot and killed Former Pickens Blue Flame football coach Bill Isaacs and friend Dickie Stewart were shot and killed Monday while walking on North Homestead Road. Police arrested suspect Albert Leon Bowen of Pickens and charged him with two counts of murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. A bond hearing for Bowen was waived Tuesday at the request of the Public Defender’s Office. According to WYFF-TV, Pickens County Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said the shooting may have stemmed from an ongoing dispute between Bowen and one of the victims. The School District of Pickens County released a statement that said, “Bill Isaacs is fondly remembered in Pickens County as the winningest coach in the history of Blue Flame Football. His impact as a coach and as an educator cannot be overstated.” Isaacs served 27 years at Pickens High School. As football coach he had 181 wins and nine region championships. A memorial service for Isaacs will be Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. at Bruce Field in Pickens and is open to the community.
dustry who was one of seven survivors from a meeting of 54 insurance executives on the 105th floor on Sept. 11, 2001. “Making the right decision is not easy, but if you trust yourself, if you trust your gut, if you trust your resources… you can make a critical decision that can have tremendous results.” For instance, a decision to begin a 100-story climb downstairs immediately after the lights flickered on the 105th floor, or the decision to ignore an announcement on the PA system telling employees and visitors to stay where they were in the building rather than exit. “Who would have thought that 18 minutes later… the same thing was going to happen to our building?” said Dittmar, who stopped briefly at the 90th floor with his colleagues, where they discovered what had happened to the north tower. “It was the worst 30 or 40 seconds of my life, to see great big holes on the side of that building, great billows of smoke... I remember immediately thinking, ‘How did the pilot not see the building?’” Or a decision, he says, to continue going down the concrete bunker of the stairs when they arrived at the sky lobby on the 78th floor, rather than opting for the elevators. One of his colleagues said she wouldn’t walk down 78
flights of stairs, and several of Dittmar’s colleagues followed suit. “I looked at her, gave the polite wave and made my way back to the stairs, which was arguably the best decision of what is still my life,” said Dittmar. “We learned later, anybody that stopped at the 78th floor didn’t make it out.” Dittmar credits those crucial decisions with his survival, in addition to what might be called karma. People immediately began helping each other, including a security guard who took it upon himself to raise spirits by singing “God Bless America” through a bullhorn. “What we saw that day was something we should see more of: human nature at its finest,” he said. “Everybody became teammates. We helped and coached each other.” Dittmar spoke at this month’s Greenville Spartanburg Anderson Technology Council luncheon in Greenville, where he recounted his experience and what he learned as a result. “First you have to trust what you know. Then you have to trust that you can make your own luck. Then you have to have faith in someone else,” he said. “People can create their own luck.”
Council approves inducement for new $100M manufacturing facility ‘Project Diamondback’ could preserve and create jobs APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
Greenville County could soon see new jobs and $100 million in investment as a new manufacturer builds a facility in the area. Greenville County Council approved a resolution to offer an inducement agreement to the company, currently called Project Diamondback. In turn, the company commits to acquiring or purchasing buildings, machinery and equipment to establish a new manufacturing facility and agrees to invest no less than $100 million within five years. Council Chairman Bob Taylor said the targeted company has a presence in the Upstate and had looked at multiple other locations; however, Greenville County is poised to be the selection. The company is building a manufacturing facility and “replacing an existing line
with new technology,” he said. “It bodes well for additional future investment.” Council Vice Chairman H.G. “Butch” Kirven said the investment would keep the company’s sizable workforce in the area and the resulting new technology would prevent the area from losing jobs. The project would touch 500 new and existing jobs, he said. When the company will make an announcement is not known, Taylor said.
WOODRUFF ROAD REZONING MOVES FORWARD In other business, council approved at second reading a rezoning for an approximately 18-acre commercial development on Woodruff Road at Sunnydale Drive that would include a grocery store, retail and offices. Neighbors expressed opposition to the traffic the development would create, and the rezoning included conditions to help address concerns, including aligning a signal intersection on the south and ensuring connectivity with the nearby planned library branch. Council also approved second read-
ing of a rezoning on Fairview Road that would allow for the expansion of the Ballantyne Commons apartment complex by roughly 120 units. Second reading of a rezoning of a property on Chick Springs Road in Taylors was referred back to the council’s planning and development committee for additional discussion.
EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION Council’s finance committee approved $146,200 in matching funds for a $1.46 million U.S. Department of Homeland Security grant to purchase new radios for fire department emergency vehicles. The funds will cover installing radios in 152 front-line emergency vehicles and three portable radios for each vehicle. “This will give us a tremendous amount of interoperability,” said Steve Graham, Boiling Springs fire chief. “This won’t be a total fix, but it’s a good start.” Emergency responders in the field had sometimes used their personal mobile phones to communicate because they did not have portable radios, Kernell said.

Worst in nation, again S.C. returns to No. 1 in the nation for rate of women killed by men BENJAMIN JEFFERS | STAFF
email@example.com Once again South Carolina ranks first in the nation for the rate of women murdered by men, according to an annual report released by the Violence Policy Center. Based on the most recent data available from 2013, the report shows women were murdered by men at a rate of 2.32 per 100,000 females. South Carolina has ranked among the top 10 states in each of the 18 years Violence Policy Center has conducted the study. Last year’s report ranked the state as second. The study covers homicides involving one female murder victim and one male offender, and uses data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Supplementary Homicide Report. Of the women murdered, about 94 percent were killed by someone they knew rather than a stranger, and women are more likely to be victimized at home than any other location, the report says. The rate of women murdered by men has fallen nationally from over 1.5 to 1.09 per 100,000 females since 1996. However, South Carolina remains at over twice the rate of
the national average. Because the numbers are based on 2013 data, the report doesn’t factor in any effects of legislation passed this year that levies harsher penalties for domestic violence offenders South Carolina. The new state law creates a system of punishments based on severity and frequency. The law also bans top-level offenders from owning guns for 10 years and requires prevention education for school students. Sara Barber, executive director of the South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, said, “With appropriate implementation… we hope that we will see significant changes.” The statewide Domestic Violence Task Force established by Gov. Nikki Haley would work with legislators to make sure organizations throughout the state followed the law’s provisions. Barber said the task force would monitor the effects of the law. “As we go forward we can look at changes and amendments that need to be made,” she said.

Health system heads to meet on EMS collaboration County Council called for connection APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org The heads of two major Upstate health systems, Greenville Health System (GHS) and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, are scheduled to meet next Wednesday to discuss ways to collaborate on operating the county’s emergency medical services (EMS). Greenville County Council passed a resolution on Sept. 1 requesting the two health systems meet “and report as to how they can work together to develop a MIHP [mobile integrated health practice] to improve access, outcomes and value for the citizens of Greenville County.” Earlier this summer, county staff and
work together, “Greenville County will then look at alternatives to previous proposals and the current EMS operation.” At this week’s council meeting, St. Francis COO Dan Duggan said his system has always wanted collaboration with GHS, and “we are going to try again.” In past meetings, County Administrator Joe Kernell has said the county could easily partner with GHS because both were governmental entities, while St. Francis is not. Kernell said this week he is unsure whether the GHS’ board decision to investigate a private governance structure would affect a future partnership. Greenville County Council is scheduled to meet again at 6 p.m. on Oct. 6 at County Square.
GHS presented a proposal to give GHS operational authority over EMS. St Francis officials strongly objected, saying they were left out of the discussions and wanted a stronger role than the advisory committee membership currently proposed. St. Francis representatives presented their case at a special council meeting on Aug. 25. The joint staff-GHS proposal includes a 10-year contract and gives GHS operational control of EMS. The county would pay $1.5 million annually to GHS. The currently county-run EMS operates at a loss of roughly $3 million to $4 million annually and has an annual budget of $16 million. Council Chairman Bob Taylor said on Sept. 1 that council cannot force the two systems to collaborate and that different philosophies may prevent any sort of joint effort. According to the council resolution, if the two systems cannot devise a plan to

The university’s 89,417 in-state donors gave more than $604 million, while the roughly 47,300 out-of-state donors contributed more than $438 million. Nearly $181 million was raised in the campaign’s last year. USC President Harris Pastides announced in his State of Carolina speech that a new centralized university advising center designed to improve student retention and decrease the time needed to graduate will open this year. He also said more than 530,000 existing square feet on the USC campus will be repurposed to expand classroom and laboratory space.

CHECK FURNACES BEFORE COLD WEATHER HITS Greer Commission of Public Works (CPW) is asking natural gas customers to test furnaces to ensure proper functionality – including pilot lights and system connections – before seasonably colder weather sets in.
NEWS | 09.18.2015 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 11
Customers should call CPW to reconnect services or have pilot lights lit. To avoid delays, customers should call customer service during September and early October. CPW typically experiences significant service backlogs during the first cold snap, causing longer response times. “Calling us early will help avoid a chilly night without heat,” said Rob Rhodes, CPW’s Natural Gas Department manager. To schedule a re-connection, customers should call CPW’s customer service at 864-848-5500.

SC DRIVERS: WATCH OUT FOR DEER South Carolina rose from 10th to ninth place this year for the odds of motorists hitting a deer, according to a study by State Farm Insurance. The likelihood of hitting a deer in the state is one in 95 drivers. “The facts are clear: South Carolina has a lot of deer and a lot of drivers,” State Farm spokesman Justin Tomczak said. “All too often these two are coming into contact with each other.” State Farm estimates state motorists filed over 37,000 claims due to deer collisions over the past year. The national cost per claim average is $4,135, up 6 percent from 2014 when the average was $3,888. The months of October through December have the highest risk for hitting a deer because of mating and hunting seasons, the company said. West Virginia topped the list of states where a collision is most likely with 1 in 44 odds. Hawaii rounds out the bottom of the list with 1 in 8,765 odds.

Legislators to GHS: Work with us or else APRIL A. MORRIS | STAFF
email@example.com A vote last week by the Greenville Health System’s (GHS) board of trustees to explore the option of forming a private, nonprofit board to operate the health system is continuing to make waves. Greenville legislators expressed concern
“You can’t just unilaterally vote to take something that’s public and make it private without the say-so of the people who originally created it – the people of the county – and we are their representatives.” Rep. Tommy Stringer
this week over the vote, saying the new board would have no public oversight and the change would violate Act 432, which established the GHS board of trustees, defined the duties of the board and gave the Greenville County Legislative Delegation authority to appoint future board members. If the law needs to be changed, the trustees should work with the legislative delegation to make changes, they said. Under the current governance structure, the delegation approves nominees to the health system’s 14-member board of trustees. GHS officials said a revised structure would potentially keep the current board, which would then hold a contract or agreement with the new private nonprofit board to operate the health system, but not have direct control over its actions. The nonprofit board would be selfappointing and self-perpetuating. The private nonprofit board would be overseen by outside regulators, agencies and accreditors such as the IRS, Joint Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Federal Drug Administration and others, said GHS vice president of strategic services Malcolm Isley. “There’s a lot of oversight and accountability for private, non-for-profit [entities],” he said. State Rep. Mike Burns said he and other lawmakers are seeking an opinion from the

state attorney general on the change. According to the attorney general’s office, such an opinion is not legally binding, but says the office’s attorneys believe a court would rule in a certain way, which is given weight and consideration by the courts. Burns said he is wary of the timing of last week’s GHS vote, because the Legislature is in recess until January. “They’re doing everything they can to ram this through,” he said, while legislators are willing to work with the board to change Act 432 if GHS trustees can make a persuasive case. GHS officials said the system is seeking the change because the health system’s status as a governmental entity has hampered its ability to partner with private entities like universities or other health providers. In order to compete in the changing healthcare setting, GHS must be able to act quickly in decision-making and “maximize system strategic and financial flexibility.” Rep. Tommy Stringer, who sponsored amendments to Act 432 in 2013 to change its name and enlarge the board in order to add two more hospitals to its system, said the delegation is willing to work with trustees and hear their concerns. Though GHS is concerned about partnering issues and no longer receives public

funding, “It does not change the fact that it’s still public. You can’t just unilaterally vote to take something that’s public and make it private without the say-so of the people who originally created it – the people of the county – and we are their representatives,” Stringer said. GHS board chairman Jim Morton has said that the health system has consulted multiple attorneys and is confident of its legal position to make the change. Morton said last week the board plans to communicate with those GHS serves and “generally listen.” Morton said the timetable on the change is flexible. Moving GHS from public to private governance could have broad implications across the state, not just in terms of health care, but in university governance and other areas, Stringer said. “My response to their legal opinion is, ‘Where’s the ethical opinion on all of this? Where is the idea that they are trustees and they have an ethical obligation to act like trustees?’” Legislators want to work with the
board to make the system stronger, Stringer said. “The last thing we want to do is damage the hospital system itself.” Burns agreed, saying he wanted to work with the GHS board to solve the issues raised. But if the board opts not to work with the delegation and proceeds to transfer its fiduciary responsibility to a private entity, “it is incumbent on us as legislators to pass legislation undoing what they did,” Stringer said. Greenville County Councilman Joe Dill said Tuesday, “I had to pinch myself” after attending the GHS board meeting on the governance change. “If it fails or goes bankrupt, the taxpayers of Greenville County are on the hook,” he said, referring to the county and city founding the system in 1947. Burns said the GHS leadership could potentially buy out the county’s investment of $2 million in 1947 dollars (approximately $21.3 million in 2015 dollars according to U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics) and operate the system as a private entity. “Anything’s possible if you amend the Act 432,” he said.
The SMART CHOICE for All of Your Home Security Needs
CORRECTION: A story in the Sept. 4, 2015 issue covering the Greenville Health System’s (GHS) board of trustees exploring a new governance structure incorrectly listed the accountability of the proposed boards. The current governmental board would not oversee a proposed private, nonprofit board (GHS Upstate). A private, nonprofit board would be accountable to the governmental board via a lease or contract, according to Malcolm Isley, vice president of strategic service for GHS.

The Legend of Greasy Corner reunion
Greasy Corner had all the services residents needed, according to Whiteside. Davis recalls shopping at the Rich Brothers grocery store and the Rabbit Trap convenience store in the neighborhood. Nightlife could be found at the Dog House club, she added. Ms. Ann sold hot dogs in a spot adjoining the Watkins Auto service station on Calhoun Street, she recalled. Fred Henson took over a service station named Dollar General and ran it for many years, Whiteside said. Two funeral homes, Watkins, Arnold and Sheppard and Joe Sullivan, operated in the neighborhood, he said. Sullivan’s was next door to Henson’s station. With no bank loans available, it was a struggle to establish a business and neighbors relied on each other for patronage, Davis said. Whiteside recalled his family would seldom venture further up Main Street than present-day Falls Street because “the cheaper stores were down there.” James Thompson, 64, who lived on Gower Street and later on nearby Howard Street, remembers the blackowned businesses that were for him examples of entrepreneurs, “even during the time of Jim Crow.” The building that housed a beauty shop at the corner of Markley and Academy streets is one of the few business structures still standing, Davis said. It will soon be nestled alongside the City Homes at Markley condo development. According to the city, the last of the six service stations was demolished in 2003.
A CENTER OF COMMERCE
At the convergence of Calhoun, Birnie and Hudson streets in Greenville, just behind where A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School now stands, was once a bustling African-American neighborhood and hub of commerce known as Greasy Corner. Greasy Corner had six gas stations at the same intersection, one dating back to 1913, according to the city of Greenville. Robbie Young Davis was born there. Davis, 71, lived on Birnie Street and recalls hurtling down the hill on roller skates as a girl. Many blackowned businesses operated in the area, including barbershops, cafes and stores, she said. Davis’ grandmother, Lizzie Carpenter, earned money by washing clothes or “chunkin’” – putting them in an outdoor pot and chunkin’ them to get the dirt off, she said. “She washed for those who lived on the mill hill.” Rev. John Whiteside was born on School Street and raised by his mother and grandmother there, he said. His mother worked as a presser at a dry cleaner, which was considered professional work because she also cleaned hats and more. Other Greasy Corner residents took the bus or walked along the railroad tracks to the homes of more affluent residents to cook and clean for them and “basically raise their children,” he said.

Map: The Greasy Corner neighborhood was centered around the intersection of Calhoun, Birnie and Hudson streets, near where A.J. Whittenberg Elementary now stands.
PROFESSIONALS, RELIGION AND EDUCATION The neighborhood was full of professionals like Professor J.E. Beck, principal of Sterling High School, and teachers Fannie Martin and Annie Brock, said Davis. Greasy Corner was also home to Dr. McLaurin and Dr. E.L. McPherson, who would make house calls. The neighborhood had four churches, including Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, Tabernacle Baptist Church and Israel Metropolitan CME Church, said Davis. Children attended what was called the Old Union School and nearby Sterling High School. While some
residents owned businesses, others worked in concrete finishing, bricklaying and plastering, said Whiteside. Students learned these trades at what was called the “negro training school,” formerly the Union Negro Elementary School, he said. Because of segregation, “we weren’t allowed to work in the mills or allowed to rent houses on the mill hill,” he said.
A ‘COOL PLACE TO BE’ Thompson remembers the area was permeated with a village mentality; “everyone looked after each other.” There was a comfort in “interacting with people who genuinely cared about you,” he said. Greasy Corner was “a cool place to be,” said Thompson,
COMMUNITY | 09.18.2015 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 15
and shaped the lives of its residents, molding their behavior and instilling respect. It was the kind of place where, “if you were caught doing something you weren’t supposed to, your parents would know about it before you got home because someone would pick up the phone,” he said. Children spent time playing outdoors on the nearby fields and at Mayberry Park, Thompson said. If he was not supposed to be out “and Coach saw you hanging out on a corner, he’d give you some extra laps,” he said. Word traveled from person to person because phones were few – however, “if something happened, everyone rallied around. It was word of mouth,” Whiteside said. “If someone died, people would just start showing up with food.” “Nobody realized we were poor,” Davis said. “Everybody had what they needed and if they didn’t have it, they could get it from a neighbor.”
TOGETHER AGAIN This weekend, former and current residents will gather for a reunion and to record their stories. The celebration will feature a picnic, banquet and special church service. Organizers will block off between Calhoun and McCall streets to hold the picnic, Whiteside said. The banquet will honor 20 “super seniors,” some of whom are more than 100 years old, he said. Thompson, who worked for Milliken and for Sara Lee in North Carolina and South Carolina, returned to the Upstate in 2004 and is looking forward to reconnecting with former neighbors. “I haven’t seen some in 40 years. It will be great to see them in a different setting than a church for a funeral.”

BEHIND THE NAME: The story behind
Greasy Corner’s name comes from what residents say was an accident between a train and a truck carrying a load of pigs, said Rev. John Whiteside. “There were pigs everywhere and people began calling it Greasy Corner,” he said.

firstname.lastname@example.org Euphoria, the Upstate’s food, drink and music festival going on this weekend, has grown beyond the expectations of its founders, restaurateur Carl Sobocinski and singer-songwriter Edwin McCain. But neither wants it to grow past the intimacy it has now. “I’ve had people tell me they’ve eaten in Frank Stitt’s restaurants in Birmingham for 20 years, but Euphoria was the first time they were able to have a conversation with him,” Sobocinski said. “At Euphoria, you can see Edwin McCain walking down the street with his guitar and actually stop him and have a conversation. We want to make sure Euphoria maintains the highest quality and remains intimate. That’s really what makes Euphoria special.” The weekend-long event features tasting events, cooking demonstrations and wine seminars, multi-course dinners by guest chefs and live musical performances. This year’s event has no shortage of chefs with national reputations. David Guas hosts the Travel Channel’s
“American Grilled.” The owner of Bayou Bakery, Coffee Bar & Eatery in Arlington, Va., Guas’ cookbook, “DamGoodSweet: Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth, New Orleans Style,” was a James Beard Award finalist in the Baking and Dessert Cookbook category.

Team SMASH competes on ABC’s dance special “#DanceBattle America.”
Local teens win national televised dance competition BENJAMIN JEFFERS | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org Three teenagers from Greenville and Easley won a national dance competition, “#DanceBattle America,” which aired on ABC Monday night. Brothers Jordan and Conner Chastain and their friend Jakevis Thomason competed as Team SMASH against seven other teams before a studio audience that voted them the winners. Jordan Chastain said he heard about the competition through a casting agent who encouraged him to submit a video,
so he got his brother and Thomason together to form a team. The brothers and Thomason knew each other from previous dance competitions, but had never danced together. They only had a week and a half to work together before the show. The team’s name is an acronym. It came about when Jordan and Conner Chastain were arguing with each other and their mom yelled out “SMASH.” The boys asked her what she was saying, and she replied, “So much attitude standing here.” Jordan Chastain said he likes the double meaning of also “smashing the

competition.” Team SMASH first battled head to head against a group of 60- and 70-year-old women with big personalities from Atlanta called the Silver Classix. The two teams had bonded during the 10 days of rehearsals and filming, so the boys said the competition was very friendly. “Who doesn’t love grandmas who can dance?” Thomason said. The choreographer who worked with the boys said he was impressed by their Southern gentlemanly charm, and incorporated their personalities into the choreography and costuming. Conner Chastain said working with the choreographer was difficult at first because he didn’t know their styles, but the choreographer helped them and they adapted. At one point in the show, Thomason did a split in the air while jumping over Conner Chastain, who was doing a move on the ground. “At first when [the choreographer] asked me to do it,” Thomason said, “I was a little like ‘I don’t know about that. Maybe try something else.’” The audience liked the routine and voted them the winners of the head-tohead battle. The team then had to wait until the end of the show to find out the final results, when the audience voted them the best overall. The grand prize was a trip to the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas. Although the competition is over, Jordan said he and the others still communicate daily with the other contestants. The boys are also adjusting back to life after the competition. Jordan Chastain is a sports communications student at Clemson University and a hip-hop dance instructor at Shock Dance Center in Mauldin. Conner Chastain is a sophomore at Easley High School, and Thomason is a senior at Wade Hampton High School. Jordan Chastain said, “Right now, what’s next is catching up on schoolwork.”

Tailgating grilling tips that help fight cancer CRYSTAL LANGLOIS | CONTRIBUTOR
One of the keys to maintaining a healthy diet is by consuming a mix of nutrients from both meat and plant sources. While preparing certain meats properly on the grill while tailgating can provide for a tasty meal, the availability of more plantbased foods offers additional opportunities to cook healthy, unique dishes. Although convenient, you must also remember that grilling has its risks. In addition to the well-known issue of food-borne illness from undercooked meats, increasing evidence suggests over-cooked foods can contain carcinogens – especially food items that are charred, burned or blackened. As you are planning your football tailgate, here are some sensible tips for eating and cooking healthy. • Aim to keep portions of red meat (beef, pork or lamb) to three ounces or less, no more than five times per week. Choose lean cuts and trim the fat. Avoid processed meats such as ham, bacon, hot dogs, sausages and deli meats. When you do purchase them, try to find the nitrate/nitrite free versions. • Although red meats are a good source of protein, they are also high in calories,
cholesterol and saturated fat. Red meats also contain compounds that can be related to cellular damage and can form carcinogens when preserved by smoking, curing, salting or adding preservatives. • Cooking “muscle meats” (including beef, pork, fish or poultry) at high temperatures can also produce carcinogens, especially in areas where meat may become charred or blackened; the risk of carcinogens forming is higher for processed and red meats. • Marinade meat for at least 30 minutes to help protect against the formation of carcinogens and improve flavor. A mixture of vinegar, juices, spices and herbs (such as pineapple juice, brown sugar, garlic, apple cider vinegar, ginger, red pepper flakes) makes a nice marinade. • Pre-cook meats in the oven to reduce the time spent on the grill. When grilling, flip meats frequently to avoid charring, and be sure to cut off any charred areas before eating. • To reduce the risk of food-borne infection, ensure meats are fully cooked with no pink inside; juices should be clear. • Clean the grill after each use to pre-

• Tofu, tempeh and plant-based burgers are not only lower in calories and fat than meat, but are also good sources of protein and other important nutrients. • Fruits and vegetables can be grilled to add a new twist to your tailgate favorites. • Other plant-based grilled meals include bean burgers, stuffed Portobello mushrooms and flatbread with grilled vegetables. • Add a salad with leafy greens or a dessert of berries or melon. When it comes to cooking, take advantage of all this season has to offer. With a little imagination, your tailgate can be healthy, balanced and delicious.

vent harmful chemicals from building up and transferring to your next meal. • Place punctured aluminum foil over the grill to prevent flare ups. But as much as you might like grilling meat, numerous studies show that increasing your intake of plant-based foods (fruits and vegetables) is a great way to improve health and maintain a healthy weight. In fact, the American Cancer Society reports that excess body weight contributes to as many as 1 in 5 cancer-related deaths. So eating more plant-based foods can not only help you maintain a healthy weight, but by doing so can also reduce your risk of cancer. Eating more plant-based foods doesn’t have to be difficult – and you can prepare many of them on the grill too. Some good examples include:

Great Southern Homes CEO Mike Satterfield Returns to the Upstate and Partners with Coldwell Banker Caine Hometown businessman and Great Southern Homes CEO, Mike Satterfield, recently expanded the company’s home building organization to the Upstate. Great Southern Home partnered with Coldwell Banker Caine to market their homes throughout the Upstate. As a Greenville native who grew up in the Sans Souci area, Satterfield has over 35 years of experience in the construction industry.
He brings with him a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of home building, from land development to exceeding customer expectations in the quality homes he builds. In 1999 and 2003, the Columbia Sales and Marketing Council names Satterfield “Builder Executive of the Year”. He was honored by the March of Dimes as the recipient of the 2004 Columbia Real Estate Award, which is earned
by those individuals and companies whose real estate activities have significantly enhanced the local community. In 2003 and 2005 he received the prestigious designation “Certified New Home Builder”, from J.D. Power and Associates for achieving and maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction, providing an “outstanding home ownership experience” in the Greenville and Columbia markets.
“We are pleased to welcome back Mike to his hometown and are thrilled to partner with Great Southern Homes,” said Brad Halter, Chairman of Coldwell Banker Caine. “The company’s commitment to building quality homes that exceed customer expectations paired with our dedication to provide superior service will make for a successful partnership in the Upstate market.”

Buyers of New Construction Still Need Services of a Realtor Consumers pay the same price if they “go direct” with a builder As the real estate market has rebounded, consumers have demanded new construction. In fact, about 30 percent of the home-buying public, at any given time, wants to purchase new construction if it’s available. One the most common misconceptions about buying new construction is that you don’t need the services of a Realtor. “If you ever need the representation of a Realtor, it is before, during and after the construction of a new home,” said Pat Riley, CEO and president, Allen Tate Companies, in the September-October edition of Carolinas Market Update, a bi-monthly real estate video series. Many new construction buyers are surprised to learn that the cost of the home is the same, whether they use a Realtor or “go direct” with a builder. A builder’s marketing fee is built into the price of the home. And while a builder’s representative is often helpful and knowledgeable, they are loyal to the builder’s interests – not the buyer’s. A Realtor will serve as a trusted advocate for the buyer, in matters from lot selection, plans and change orders, to financing options and coordinating a home’s completion with the sale of the buyer’s existing home. “The representation of a Realtor when you are buying new construction costs you no more than if you go it alone and assume all the risk,” said Riley. Carolinas Market Update is targeted to consumers in the Charlotte, Triad, Research Triangle and Upstate S.C. regions. It is produced every other month by the Allen Tate Companies and features information, statistics, trends and predictions about the real estate market in North and South Carolina. To access the latest Carolinas Market Update, go to the Allen Tate YouTube channel (www. youtube.com/theallentatecompany) or contact any Allen Tate Realtor®.

table is complete. If you want more information, look up Connecting Farms to Families Mobile Market by going to adamsmobilemarket.com. Meanwhile, your fall garden seedlings should be up and getting established. Mine are. A good friend reminds me that per Clemson Extension, you should have all your fall veggies planted by Sept. 15 so they have time to establish themselves before the expected first frost date of Oct. 15. You can push this date a little, but not by much. Readily available now in the big box stores, feed and seed stores, and local nurseries are plant sets of broccoli, cabbage, collards, cauliflower, lettuces, spinach, onion sets and Brussels sprouts to fill up the empty spaces in your garden beds. Ornamental kales and mums look pretty too. If you have a patio garden, try lettuce in pots. Also, planting garlic is a must in the fall, and simple to do. Just go buy some garlic bulbs (yes, at your local grocery store), break the heads up into cloves and stick them in rows in the garden. Garlic needs 40 or more cold days below 40 degrees in order for the clove you put in the ground to split into a bulb. Garlic requires a well-balanced soil that is loose enough for the bulb to grow. Plant the cloves 4 inches deep and about 6 inches apart. If this sparks your interest, read all about it online. The garlic will be ready to harvest next summer. Growing your own garlic is sure to make you feel like a successful gardener. I encourage you to plant some in your own garden. Some pests don’t like the smell of garlic, so I always plant mine on the perimeter of the beds. As I wander through the garden, I am beginning to notice the subtle changes in color of the foliage. The sedum is especially spectacular; it hangs around all summer rather boring, but as soon as Labor Day passes, its flower heads burst into glorious color. I believe we too are like the plants in the garden. Our spirit stirs as we sense a change coming. As the days shorten and darkness descends be aware of the subtle shifts in nature and in yourself. See you in the garden. Kathy Slayter is a Greenville Realtor and third-generation gardener who became a Clemson-certified Master Gardener in 2007. She is passionate about growing, cooking and eating her homegrown food.

R E A L E S TAT E N E W S Why Use a REALTOR®?
All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR® logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again. Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their
lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®. But if you’re still not convinced of the value of a REALTOR®, here are a dozen more reasons to use one: 1. Your REALTOR® can help you determine your buying power -- that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a REALTOR® some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders
-- banks and mortgage companies -- offer limited choices. 2. Your REALTOR® has many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties. 3. Your REALTOR® can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. Agents who are REALTORS® have access to a variety of informational resources. REALTORS® can provide local community information on utilities, zoning. schools, etc. There are two things you’ll want to know. First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?
4. Your REALTOR® can help you negotiate. There are myriad negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required. 5. Your REALTOR® provides due diligence during the evaluation of the property. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name
HOME | 09.18.2015 | GREENVILLE JOURNAL | 41 a few. Your REALTOR® can assist you in �inding quali�ied responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the title of the property. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations; for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. Your REALTOR®, title company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date. 6. Your REALTOR® can help you in understanding different �inancing options and in identifying quali�ied lenders. 7. Your REALTOR® can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything �lows together smoothly. 8. When selling your home, your REALTOR® can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, �inancing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle. 9. Your REALTOR® markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. Often, your REALTOR® can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will signi�icantly enhance the salability of your property. Your REALTOR® markets your property to other real estate agents and the public. In many markets across the country, over 50% of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. Your REALTOR® acts as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc. The REALTOR® Code of Ethics requires REALTORS® to utilize these cooperative relationships when they bene�it their clients.
10. Your REALTOR® will know when, where and how to advertise your property. There is a misconception that advertising sells real estate. The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® studies show that 82% of real estate sales are the result of agent contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, family and personal contacts. When a property is marketed with the help of your REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany quali�ied prospects through your property. 11. Your REALTOR® can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and �inancing -- a lot of possible pitfalls. Your REALTOR® can help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will be more likely to make it through the process. 12. Your REALTOR® can help close the sale of your home. Between the initial sales agreement and closing (or settlement), questions may arise. For example, unexpected repairs are required to obtain �inancing or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your REALTOR® is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing (or settlement). The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries. Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® represents over 2,200 members in all aspects of the real estate industry. Please visit the Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS® web site at www.ggar.com for real estate and consumer information. “Every market is different, call a REALTOR® today.”

Off to see the Wizard Exhibit based on book that became one of America’s best-known fairy tales CINDY LANDRUM | STAFF
firstname.lastname@example.org A Kansas tornado more than a century ago had a profound effect on the life of children’s book author L. Frank Baum, who penned “The Wonderful World of Oz” in 1900 – and on American culture. Generations of Americans have enjoyed the story of Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion and the yellow brick road. It all started with a book, which is the subject of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” exhibit that opens at the Upcountry History Museum on Saturday. The exhibit, produced and developed by Great Explorations Children’s Museum of St. Petersburg, Fla., with a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, is making its first appearance in South Carolina and Georgia. The exhibit is designed as a giant popup book to allow visitors to immerse
themselves in the Magical Land of Oz as well as science, history and the arts. When Baum wrote “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” he didn’t plan to write a sequel. But he acquiesced after thousands of children who read the book wrote letters asking him to write another story about Oz. He wrote and published the first sequel in 1904 and wrote sequels in 1907, 1908 and 1909. When he wrote “The Emerald City of Oz” in 1911, he wrote he could not continue writing sequels because Ozland had lost contact with the
The book vs. the movie
“The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”
BOOK: Oz is a real place.
WHERE: Upcountry History Museum, 540 Buncombe St., Greenville
MOVIE: Oz is imaginary and Dorothy’s journey is a dream.
WHEN: Sept. 19-Jan. 18 (Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day); Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. COST: $6 adults, $5 seniors and college students, $4 children and students ages 4 to 18, free for children 3 and Under and museum members.

rest of the world. But his readers didn’t accept that, and Baum wrote another sequel in 1913 and every year after until his death in 1919. After Baum’s death, his publishers got Ruth Plumly Thompson to continue to write sequels. An original Oz book was published every Christmas between 1913 and 1942. Baum also wrote a 1902 Broadway musical that he adapted from the original story. The original book has been in the public domain since 1956.
BOOK: Dorothy throws water on the Wicked Witch because the witch took one of her shoes. MOVIE: She was trying to put out the fire on the Scarecrow. BOOK: Dorothy has additional adventures after the Wizard departs before the good witch Glinda tells her to go home. MOVIE: Glinda shows up right after the Wizard’s balloon takes off without Dorothy. BOOK: The Cowardly Lion drinks a draught of liquid “courage.” MOVIE: He gets a medal for bravery. BOOK: The Wizard stuffs the Scarecrow’s head with bran, pins and needles to symbolize the intelligence he already has. MOVIE: He gets a diploma.
Did you know? • Dorothy’s slippers were silver in the book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. They were made ruby red in the movie to show up better on the yellow brick road. • Baum was a former chicken rancher, traveling salesman and theater manager. • The name “Oz” came from one of the cabinet drawers in Baum’s study that was labeled O-Z. • Dorothy was named after Dorothy Gage, the infant niece of Baum’s wife, Maud. Dorothy died right as Baum started writing “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” • In the film, a female dog named Terry played Toto. • “Over the Rainbow” was almost cut from the film for length reasons. • Buddy Ebsen was supposed to play the film’s Tin Man but had to bow out after he developed a severe allergic reaction to his silver paint. • The Smithsonian exhibit housing Dorothy’s slippers is so popular that the carpet in front of the slippers has been replaced numerous times due to wear and tear.

email@example.com Baseball. Soccer. Hockey. Bowling. Kickball. America loves sports, and that love starts in hometowns – on sandlots and in empty lots, in local gymnasiums and on Little League fields, in schools and on the streets. From pickup games to high school football games, we learn about winning and losing, sportsmanship and perseverance through sports. If we’re not participating ourselves, we’re watching somebody else, from the youngest children trying to hit a baseball off of a tee to professionals who play a game for a living. “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America,” a Smithsonian Museum on Main Street traveling exhibit, is at Slater Hall through Oct. 25. The Slater Hall Citizens’ Committee and the Travelers Rest Historical Society are hosts. “Hometown Teams” captures the stories that unfold on neighborhood fields and courts and the underdog heroics, larger-than-life legends, fierce rivalries and gut-wrenching defeats.

The Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program is designed to give residents of small towns and rural areas access to cultural experiences to which they may otherwise have no access. One-fifth of Americans live in rural areas and about 43 percent of American museums are located in small, ru-
ral towns, the exhibit notes. But those museums – and historical associations and libraries that often are the cultural centers for rural America – often have smaller budgets and staffs and fewer opportunities to bring in traveling exhibitions than museums in bigger towns and more urban areas. The Museum on Main Street program targets small towns with populations of between 500 and 20,000 people. Since 1991, Museum on Main has traveled to more than 900 communities in 46 states and Guam, the Smithsonian says. Museum on Main Street invites the public to share their local sports stories through the “Stories from Main Street” website at storiesfrommainstreet.org or through the free mobile app available from the Mac App Store or the Google Play Store. Both platforms record and map the location reflected in the submission and will accept written and audio stories as well as videos and photos. The archived stories will serve as a searchable re-
cord of the unique experiences of life in American small towns. On Sept. 26, a cycling event will be held on the Swamp Rabbit Trail from Travelers Rest History Museum to Slater Hall. The ride starts at 8 a.m. Oct. 10 is Outdoor Movie Night. “McFarland USA” will be shown beginning at 7 p.m. The exhibit will be open before and after the movie. On Oct. 24, a vintage baseball game will be held at Shoeless Joe Jackson Park in Greenville at 10 a.m.
So you know “Hometown Teams” WHO: A Smithsonian traveling exhibition WHEN: now through Oct. 25 – Tuesdays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursdays, noon to 8 p.m.; Sundays, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. WHERE: Slater Hall, 5 Whitney St., Slater ADMISSION: Free INFORMATION: slaterhallsc.org

Citizen Trump Censorship fails in the age of the Internet Throughout the first part of the 20th century, filmmakers were at the mercy of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America trade association. Before their movies could be distributed, they had to get past the gatekeeper, Will H. Hays. Hays, the president of the Republican National Committee and a player in the Teapot Dome scandal, was appointed to clean up Hollywood in 1922. His puritanical standards for the film industry became known as the Hays Code. In the 1960s, the MPPDA changed its name to the Motion Picture Association of America and the organization developed the rating system we have today. But the Hays Office and the MPAA have not been the only impediments to free expression in the movie industry. In 1940, Orson Welles went to Hollywood as a novice filmmaker. He had gained fame two years earlier by scaring the nation half to death with his radio version of “War of the Worlds.” As a result, he was given a contract by RKO Pictures to produce his first film, “Citizen Kane.” It is ranked as the No. 1 film of all time by the American Film Institute. “Kane” is the story of Charles Foster Kane, a newspaper publisher who is more interested in creating news than reporting it. Kane is a fictional character, but he was largely based on real-life publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst, and Welles did not paint a flattering portrait. As a result, Hearst made several attempts to suppress the film. He offered to buy it so he could burn the negative. He threatened FBI investigations and he intimidated theater owners into giving it only a limited release. But to this day, it survives and thrives and is available on Netflix DVD, Amazon, YouTube and at the Greenville County Library. In the ’90s, Donald Trump was more successful at censorship by suppressing a film called “Trump: What’s the Deal?” The film exposes many of Trump’s shady dealings, contempt for others and inherent narcissism. Ironically, it includes a segment about a group of 200 undocumented immigrants who worked on a crew demolishing a building to make room for the Trump Tower. According to the film’s official website, Trump was so unhappy about the film that he threatened to sue anyone who screened it – but in this brave new world of Internet distribution, the film is now available for free. Given his recent rise in the polls, the film should be required viewing for all voters. Just go to TrumpTheMovie.com. Eric Rogers has been teaching filmmaking at The Greenville Fine Arts Center since 1994.

Atlas Road Crew keeps it raw
Come Help Us Celebrate
When the Charleston quintet Atlas Road Crew went into the studio last year to record their debut full-length album, they knew what they were aiming for, musically. The band, which formed in 2011 while all five members were students at USC, loved the old-school rock ’n’ roll of the Rolling Stones, the Hammondorgan-drenched Southern grit of the Allman Brothers and the upfront, strutting attitude of the Black Crowes, and they Details wanted to combine their own hard-driving style, honed from Atlas Road Crew w/Dave Britt playing 200 shows a year, into WHEN: Friday, Sept. 18, 8 p.m. the mix. They probably didn’t expect WHERE: Gottrocks, 200 Eisenhower Drive, to come up with “Halfway to Greenville Hopkins,” which is the best TICKETS: $5 straight-ahead rock album I’ve INFO: 864-235-5519; gottrocksgreenville.com heard in years. Together with producers Rick Beato, Cory Plaugh and Jay Clifford, ARC (singer/guitarist Taylor Nicholson, guitarist Dave Beddingfield, pianist Bryce James, bassist Max Becker and drummer Patrick Drohan) has created a work of throwback genius, mixing anthemic choruses, unforgettable riffs, down-and-dirty grooves and boundless energy. It’s as if the rock-clock stopped in 1972, and no one minded at all. Special Guests: The reaction to “Halfway to Hopkins” has been near-universally positive, to the extent that the band has essentially been working nonstop since it came out in February. “I’ve definitely been surprised by the response to the record,” Nicholson says. “People really seem to be digging it. We’re getting feedback from Germany and places all over Europe where we never would’ve expected people to buy our album.” Perhaps part of the reason for the buzz around Atlas Road Crew, who will play at Gottrocks in Greenville Friday night, is that there seems to be a real lack of simple, and straightforward rock in the modern musical marketplace. “I think that has a lot to do with it,” Nicholson says. “There aren’t too many bands nowadays that are doing this. There are bands going the electronic route, but for us, keeping it raw with the guitars and piano makes our music stand out a little bit.” The Crew’s live show, honed over four years, has been a calling card for the band, as well. With only the 11 songs from “Halfway to Hopkins” to pull from, they often throw in some classic rock and blues favorites that influenced them. “As a whole, it’s bands like Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, the Southern rock bands, all of that hits home for us,” Nicholson says. “I think it’s refreshing for people who are a little bit older to see these young guys playing songs by the artists they grew up listening to.” More than 200 shows a year is a lot of time to be crammed together into a van, so it’s come in handy for the band that they started as friends before forming the group. “We all used to be just some guys at college playing instruments,” Nicholson says, “and now over the last few years it’s just developed more and more. We have a European tour coming up in February. It’ll be our first time over there, and it’s pretty cool to O.K.

Escape to another world Teen reads offer alternative to high school stress and drama
Back-to-school can be an avalanche of activity, deadlines and hallway drama for any teen. These great books for young adults can provide an intriguing escape from the everyday hustle with their dose of altered realities. “The Glass Sentence” by S. E. Grove is a unique mix of mystery, science fiction and adventure. Sophia Tims lives in a fractured world – 100 years ago, the earth changed irrevocably and without explanation. Time itself shattered, dividing the continents into different ages. In Boston, Sophia’s home, the year is 1891, but Canada to the north has been lost to the advancing glaciers of an ice age. Exploration and trade with different ages has led to a melding of past and future technologies. Sophia’s uncle is a cartologer, one of the few scholars able to create maps of this new world that go far beyond the bounds of simple paper. When Sophia returns to find their house in shambles and her uncle missing, she must use the skills she has learned as her uncle’s apprentice to map the clues and find him. Catherine Fisher’s “Incarceron” is a meditation on utopian sentiments gone awry. After a war that destroyed most of the moon over 100 years ago, the poor and the malcontents of the world were all locked away in a self-contained living prison in a bid to bring peace and prosperity to what was left of the world. Only one person is rumored to have ever escaped from Incarceron. Finn has no memories before he woke up deep in the machinations of the prison. Claudia, daughter of Incarceron’s warden, lives in a world grown stagnant by Protocol, a policy that enforces the technologies and trends of the 18th century. Together they seek to unlock the mysteries around Incarceron.

Fever Crumb is an orphan who spends her days tinkering in the workshop of her adopted father’s lab at the headquarters of the Order of Engineers, a group dedicated to invention and reinvention of lost technology.

COMMUNITY VOICES THE SYMPTOMS WITH ASHLEY HOLT
The accidental purist Gnat showed up in a van he said he’d been driving for two weeks, but it looked like he’d owned it for 20 years. The outside was covered with dents, dirt and debris, and the interior contained fossil layers of convenience store and Burger King refuse, covering the once-pristine upholstery. He’d driven this monstrosity to visit me while I was pretending to get a college education in Savannah. In a weak moment of nostalgia for our hobo high school years, I had invited this dumpster diver to spend a few days with me in my new apartment. I was taken aback by his malodorous condition. Gnat brought the smell inside with him. He was wearing surgeon’s scrubs, making him look like the escaped mental patient he essentially was, and it became clear that this was his only set of clothes. Within an hour of his unpacking his belongings, every room in my apartment resembled his unfortunate vehicle. Gnat was, to put it kindly, untidy. Like Pigpen in “Peanuts,” he seemed capable of actually multiplying the filth around him. I’m generally okay with this. Since I engage socially with starving artists and streetwise hooligans, I know a lot of seriously filthy people. They avoid cleaning the toilet, the toaster oven or their own torsos, and being their pal means coming into contact with the toxic and potentially infectious environments in which they dwell. Within reason, this doesn’t bother me. Unlike so many germ-crazed citizens, I don’t feel the need to slather myself in sanitizer just because the lawn chair wasn’t hosed down with antibiotics. In fact, I think I share with most Americans a respect for good, honest filth. In spite of our germ phobia and constant showering, in spite of our cat-like vigilance against “the dirt we don’t see,” Americans worship mythic heroes who are filthy. Unwashed cowboys, greasy mechanics and factory workers, dusty ground troops, soot-smudged firemen, Tom Waits – we idealize them as the unshowered backbone of the country, and like them, we long to get sweaty, grimy and gross in the pursuit of personal accomplishment (provided we can scrub down with body wash afterward).

WE ARE New York, but they always lament that the grime and contamination of the old New York is gone. Maybe that’s why I had a soft spot for the Gnat. He was like that old New York – Kojak’s New York – that wonderland of crack houses and raw sewage, before the hipsters moved in with their graphic design and artisanal cheeses. The beautiful thing about damaged, unvarnished scuzzbags like Gnat is that they have no choice but to be their honest, gunk-encrusted selves. No attempt at gentrification, no pressurewashing or resurfacing, could alter his true, unfiltered, horrendously wretched self. Gnat and I had a long history of bohemian misadventures: ingesting unclean, non-FDA-approved substances in moldy basements, swigging beers with Black Sabbath in garbage-strewn cul-de-sacs, sleeping off weekend binges in bug-infested garages. We had been comrades in corruption. The trouble was that, in the intervening years, Gnat had enhanced his lifestyle of unwashed hooliganism and intoxication, while I had been tidying up. No longer did I leave dishes in the sink until they sprouted plant life. No longer did my refrigerator look like a laboratory experiment. I was embracing the clean life, Cloroxing the tank and tile, PineSoling the hardwood, Cascading the breakfast bowls. While I wasn’t exactly compulsive about my bathtub scrubbings, I was not, as Gnat preferred, using said tub as a toilet. And now, here he was, bringing to my lemon-fresh world
his filth and foul odor, soiling my sanitized adulthood with the putrescence of the past. I was resisting the urge to delouse him in a cloud of disinfectant. With bleach. He had to go. After a week of wallowing in this horror, I finally convinced Gnat it was time to pollute other regions. I helped him pack up his clutter and watched him drive away into a future of intermittent homelessness and jail time, then started dousing the apartment in cleanser immediately. I didn’t see Gnat again for another 12 years. He was living in a rented house – more of a shed – in North Charleston, and I invited myself over out of morbid curiosity. He wouldn’t let me inside. He said the place was a mess. Gnat, who I’d once seen blow his nose in his own bed linens, who allowed a pet ferret to use his car as a litter box, who had slept under bridges with no hope of a morning shower – that Gnat was now ashamed of his living conditions. We hung out at Hardee’s instead, where I watched him distribute ham and cheese particles all over his shirt and the floor, trying to imagine what “Grey Gardens” nightmare was inside that house. I never found out how bad the filth had gotten. I doubt he had any artisanal cheese in there. Ashley Holt is a writer and illustrator living in Spartanburg.
