BREEZE PHOTO BY CHARLES LAWRENCE JAYNA BARRETT plays the role of 'Flounder,' Ariel's best friend, during a dress rehearsal for Smithfield High School's upcom- ing presentation of "The Little Mermaid," set for this weekend. SMITHFIELD – Peace, written under a white dove on the All Lit Up Christmas Parade fundraising banners in Greenville center, is on shaky ground as Parade Committee Chairman Thomas Winfield defends the placement of the banners. Robert Leach, of the Smithfield Historic Preservation Commission, said he received a complaint about the banners from an Esmond resident who questioned why advertising ban- ners are attached to the historical colonial-style lamp posts in Greenville v illage. He described this issue as a matter of "uncluttering Greenville." "We are researching the issue at the moment but want to have more facts before we deliberate this fur- ther," Leach told The Valley Breeze & Observer. Winfield and the Historic Preservation Commission have had run-ins in the past, most notably a year ago when Winfield, then a state representative, famously ordered members to stop using his driveway in Greenville in response to them speaking against his bill as a state rep- resentative to disband the Smithfield Winfield defends Greenville's Christmas banners By JACQUELYN MOOREHEAD Valley Breeze & Observer Staff Writer See BANNERS, Page 6 SMITHFIELD – Take a trip under the sea and into the world of "The Little Mermaid" in the Smithfield High School Music Department's presentation of the fairy tale classic this weekend, March 8-10. SHS music teacher Katherine Young is directing the play, which she said is a take on the Disney movie with some stage differences. "The Little Mermaid" will feature fewer frights and more songs, Young said, making it a good fit for families with young children. Young is leading a cast of high school actors, some of whom are seasoned student actors and others who are just starting. She said the cast is a "great group of kids," with the talent to make directing the pro- duction free of stress. Like Ariel in "The Little Mermaid," Young and her students are part of one world but are push- ing themselves to become part of another world. With an educational background in music, Young said she is learning to direct acting at the same time.
