The Drive (6-8) return to Fluor Field at 7:05 tonight on a two-game winning streak. Former Mauldin High star Madison Younginer is Greenville’s scheduled starter against the Augusta GreenJackets.

Green Valley, long the home of professional golfers, business leaders and Augusta National Golf Club members, was private for many years.
However, it lost nearly two-thirds of its approximately 300 private members within two years as the slumping economy spurred them to pull out of an arrangement that included annual assessments to cover shortfalls, club officials told GreenvilleOnline.com.

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. Whittenberg’s suit against the school district, and subsequent voluntary integration, local schools remained primarily segregated.
King’s presence was a boon to the local movement, said Lottie Gibson, a longtime member of Greenville County Council who was active in the civil rights movement and participated in voter registration drives with the King family in Atlanta.
“He was a beacon light of change, and people felt that his presence and the fact that we were uniting with him in his efforts, that we were unhappy with things that were happening in Greenville,” Gibson said. “Anytime you can bring a national leader for the purpose for which you are fighting, it spells something.”
April 30, 1967, was a day of excitement for Garrett. He had friends from Charlotte, Atlanta and Columbia coming to see Dr. King’s afternoon speech. King arrived early and Watkins, Arnold & Shepherd Mortuary provided a car to carry him from a meeting with local leaders at Allen Temple AME Church to Greenville Memorial Auditorium.
When King took the stage he looked out on a crowd of 3,500 people. The excitement was palpable, and Garrett knew something big was happening.
“He could inspire people, black and white,” Garrett said, sighing at the memory. “And the truth I guess really penetrated.”
(Page 4 of 4)
In his booming, steady voice, King spoke about injustice and striving for personal betterment. He urged blacks to use “green power” to economically challenge the laws of segregation, and he urged people to get involved with voter registration drives. He celebrated the continued fight to integrate local schools.
Garrett recalled him talking about “being the best you can be” whether you were a teacher or a street ...

EagleMed may do that one day, he said.
But since opening, about half the flights have been to take patients to the burn treatment center in Augusta, Ga., he said.
While travel to distant locations will comprise a portion of the business, the greatest volume will come from backing up helicopter trips, he said.
EagleMed doesn’t disclose its prices, but Ellis said emergency air medical service is covered at least in part by insurance.
GHS doesn’t have a contract with EagleMed to provide air services, Lutz said, but GHS Mobile Care, the hospital’s ambulance service, has an agreement to do ground transport for EagleMed.
One flight a day is enough to make a profit, Ellis said. But a feasibility study showed the company will eventually get more than that, he said, noting it gets one flight or more a day at its other locations.
EagleMed began operations in Wichita, Kan., in 1977, Ellis said. In addition to South Carolina, it also serves Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. It’s accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Services and its staff is clinically certified.
