NGU’s Tomberlin Joins PurrCussion, Carolina Panthers Drumline
- By North Greenville University
Tigerville, SC – Chase Tomberlin, a senior music major from Greer, has more going on in his life than just going to class and studying. He has a part-time job, but not just any part-time job. He travels two times a week, maybe more, to Charlotte, NC to rehearse with the Carolina Panthers PurrCussion drumline, a percussion ensemble that performs during every Carolina Panthers home game.
“Being on the sideline of an NFL game is a lot of fun,” said Tomberlin.
He heard about the drumline from a friend he taught with through North Greenville Indoor Percussion, a non-profit youth percussion ensemble sponsored by North Greenville University. He auditioned in April, shortly after the end of the Indoor season.

Greenville County Council Dispute Going to Court
- By Bob Dill, Publisher
The legal battle in Greenville County Council is coming to a conclusion – at least in court.
The legal complaint filed by members of Greenville County Council against Chairman Butch Kirven will be heard in the Greenville County Courthouse Wednesday Morning, August 9 at 9:30 am.
The dispute began when Chairman Kirven ruled that fees on county taxpayers could be increased with only 7 votes of the 12-member Council. Council rules state that increases in taxes and fees require more than a simple majority.
Councilmen Willis Meadows, Joe Dill and Mike Barnes along with state lawmakers and other citizens asked the State Attorney General for an opinion on the Kirven decision. When the Attorney General opinion disagreed with Kirven, he decided to ignore it. That action by the chairman forced his opposition on Council to go to court to force compliance.
