Local Obituaries and Funeral Notice News


Local residents remember the day Martin Luther King came to town - Greenville News

Sun, Jan 22, 2012
King’s visit. The reason King stopped in Greenville that day is now recounted from memory banks more than historical record. A story in TheGreenvilleNews-Piedmont from May 1, 1967, said King’s visit was organized by the newly formed Greenville Christian Leadership Conference, an offshoot of King’s national Southern Christian Leadership Conference and created by a number of local black religious leaders. Many who remember the visit also cite a workers strike at Claussen’s Bakery as part of the impetus. Douglas Cobb, who worked at Claussen’s on and off for 30 years, remembers the strike well. There was great disparity between black and white workers, Cobb recalled. Whites were often promoted over blacks, he said, even if they’d worked there for a shorter time. Workers at Claussen’s Atlanta plant had organized to demand fair treatment, and Greenville followed suit. “It was organized, it just didn't happen,” Cobb said of the strike. In 1967, black workers at Claussen’s (the old building still stands on Augusta Street) organized to demand fair pay and fair treatment. The now 82-year-old Cobb said he was content with his own situation at the time, but he was caught up in the throes of the civil rights movement and felt compelled to join his fellow workers. Local civil rights leaders like the Rev. J.A. Sabb, president of the Greenville Christian Leadership Conference and local NAACP, stepped up to support the strike as well, though Cobb recalled the core group being only 30 or so people. Bettye Fincher’s late husband, Roy Lee, would often work his shift as a delivery driver for Geer Drugs until 1 p.m., when he would leave to join the picket line. Roy Lee had quit his job at Claussen’s in protest, said Bettye, and eventually he discussed the rumblings with Jesse Jackson, a friend and former Sterling High classmate. By then Jackson was moving in the same circles as King as head of the SCLC Operation Breadbasket program in Chicago. (Page 3 of 4) Jackson agreed to speak to King as well. “I once was a worker at Claussen's Bakery and I knew all of the workers there,” Jackson said, speaking by phone from Iowa. “I was anxious to bring him home.” Greenville was reeling at the time, struggling against longstanding traditions and civil change that was brewing around the country. Greenville’s civil rights landscape Greenville's civil rights landscape By 1967, many people had been working for years to transform the local legal and civil landscape. There was a march to integrate the Downtown Airport waiting rooms led by the Rev. James S. Hall, then pastor of Springfield Baptist Church; the series of sit-ins at the library; and numerous publicized and unpublicized sit-ins at public parks and lunch counters. Even after local NAACP president A.J.

Giving regional food products is always in good taste - Greenville News

Sat, Dec 17, 2011
South Carolina flavor and comes from a family recipe. To add oomph to a gift, Colacioppo likes to create baskets of like items. For instance, a box of Carolina Tea Company tea, a jar of local Piedmont honey and a tea towel make a terrific gift for under $20. Or try a “South Carolina” basket with a bag of the hard-to-come-by Carolina Gold Rice, a jar of Lowcountry Produce’s Artichoke Chow Chow and a bottle of the Charleston-based Slather Sauce or Greenville-made In Laws Barbecue sauce. “A lot of people now are not from here,” Colacioppo says. “My husband grew up in New York, and he never would have known what artichoke relish was or, sweet potato butter, the grits.’’ Colacioppo sends the rice to her in-laws in Denver every year since they can’t get it where they live. It’s always a big hit, she says. “There’s nothing like the taste of these,” she says. The local Great Harvest has gift baskets, too. The bakery, which makes hand-crafted whole grain breads, muffins and treats, also carries local goods like West End coffee and handmade pottery by local artists. So for the holidays, the staff likes to put together what owner Mike Vanzura calls a “Coffee” basket that includes coffee, homemade biscotti, a mug and a loaf of bread, like the special holiday stollen. Or, he says, another idea is to create a “Christmas Morning” basket - a loaf of bread (the cinnamon chip or the apple pie swirl are great for French toast), a jar of all-natural maple syrup and a recipe card with the bakery’s special recipe. “I really feel giving food as a gift lends to bringing the family together,” Vanzura says. “And it brings friends together just to enjoy whatever it is.” ...

Piedmont foresees lower gas costs - Greenville News

Mon, Nov 28, 2011
Piedmont Natural Gas still is projecting lower winter bills for 2011-12, saying a decline in the wholesale cost of natural gas and increases in the U.S. supply and production of shale gas are helping consumers. “The volatility of gas pricing has stabilized a good bit,” Piedmont spokesman David Trusty told GreenvilleOnline.com on Monday. “The influx of additional supply into the equation has helped...

Greg Johnson, manager of NGV business development for Piedmont Natural Gas. This conversion is underway in Venezula and Iraq as well as Utah in the United States, he said. That state, which has a large supply of natural gas, provided incentives for natural gas vehicle use. Charlotte has bought two trash trucks fueled by natural gas and expects to add five more. The trucks cost about $50,000 more than diesel-fueled trucks but save about $8,000 a year in operating costs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20 percent. Also, various businesses in Greenville are moving toward natural gas fleets, he said, and Piedmont Natural Gas expects to have 30 percent of its 700-vehicle fleet converted to natural gas in two years. Dave Edwards, president and chief executive of the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, said that passenger traffic has picked up significantly since Southwest Airlines began providing service in March. As traffic grows and new flights are added, each flight generates about $20.37 million in annual economic impact. In addition to a planned $100 million expansion and renovation of the terminal in the next few years, GSP is working to secure non-stop service to Denver, Los Vegas, Las Angeles and Boston, he said. (Page 4 of 4) Dale Hill, founder of Proterra, said he sees a shift in the entire transit industry worldwide as government, businesses and residents want alternative energy and cleaner vehicles. Also, petroleum prices are climbing and the federal government is cracking down on emissions at the same time that demand for service is increasing. Proterra builds electric buses in Greenville - buses that use batteries that can be recharged in less than 10 minutes. It plans to build 20 to 30 buses next year, 100 to 120 in 2013 and as many as 500 annually in four to five years. “We want South Carolina to be the first predominantly battery-electric state as pertains to vehicles,” Hill said. Public transit is also part of the answer to the Upstate’s congestion and road problems, said Carl Jackson, director of transportation for the city of Greenville. Nationjwide, public transit reduces CO2 emissions by 37 metric tons and saves 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline a year. GreenLink’s ridership is up as people, especially young people and senior citizens, look to publiic transit again. GreenLink, which uses biodiesel fuel, has partnered with businesses and organizations to provide transportation meeting their needs, it will begin service in Maul...

Midtown for suicide awareness and prevention. The metro-Atlanta chapter of American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is hosting its eighth annual “Out of the Darkness Walk” at Piedmont Park. Some 500 people were pre-registered as of Friday, November 4, according to organizers. The event will especially recognize the rising number of military and veteran suicides with a “Taps” performance by Bugles Across America. Doves will also be released at the event. “I think there’s something very empowering for survivors to join with people who have walked in their shoes and lost a loved one,” said Anna Ruth Williams, a board member with the metro-Atlanta chapter. She, too, lost her father to suicide. (No relation to Ryan Williams.)  So, she knows first-hand. The experience of the walk creates a “positive change out of a tragedy,” she added. On average, in Georgia 1,000 citizens take their lives each year, causing suicide rates to surpass those of homicide, according to data provided by American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. And, yes, every 15 minutes someone ends his or her life. But, Ryan doesn’t want his father to be remembered as a number. To him, he was just Dad. He wants there to be some good to his father’s last moments. “The walk for us is to hopefully help another family from going through what we had to go through,” he said. ------------------------ The "Out of the Darkness Walk" is 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m., today (Sunday, November 6), beginning at the Piedmont Park entrance. For more information on the metro-Atlanta chapter of American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, click here. For local assistance, those interested may attend monthly support groups at Eastside Heritage Center in Snellville, Ga. The meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month. On November 8, the session is from 6:30 p.m. -  8 p.m. For more details, contact Chris Owens at cowens@afsp.org, or call 404-374-5197.

Mega-region idea abandons state lines - Greenville News

Sun, Nov 6, 2011
Ted Abernathy, executive director of the Southern Growth Policies Board, told attendees at the Upstate SC Forum discussing the Atlantic Piedmont mega-region. “People collaborate when it’s in their interest,” he said, adding that competing with cities of 35 million or more isn’t easy. “You have to show people what they get.” To do that takes planning. “We don’t have a business plan. We’re doing this anecdotally,” said Sam Williams, president of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. The forum was an affirmation of the idea of a mega-region collaboration, Abernathy said. Now comes th...
