Looking to add value to your home? Installing a spa or pool is a wonderful idea to add to your list. Plus, your backyard barbecues will be much more fun. The process of installing a pool or spa isn't something you can handle on your own, though. You will need a team of experienced electricians in Charleston, SC to ensure your system is set up correctly. That way, you can enjoy your pool or spa for years to come, and it'll be in great working order when it's time to sell.
Installing a pool or spa is a very involved job that includes more than digging out space for a pool or spa. These units are very complex and have a whole host of electrical needs, from heating units and filters to color-changing lights that wow your guests. Having a professional install these parts is vital. Otherwise, you'll be swimming in a dirty, near-freezing pool or spa.
Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors guarantees your pool or spa will be in proper working order for years and years.
Finding a reliable EV charging station when you're out and about is still a gamble in this day and age. While EV charger availability is improving, most EV owners prefer to have a charging station installed at home. But doing so is easier said than done and often requires the help of a professional electrician.
If you're like most homeowners, you don't have the proper permit to install your own EV charging station. For that reason alone, you need to rely on a pro who has the right tools and electrical know-how to handle the job. Plus, EV chargers need much more voltage than standard electrical systems you may find in your home. That makes installing these devices much more dangerous than average appliances. Hiring Sievert Electrical Contractors to install your charging station ensures it's completed quickly, correctly, and safely.

CHARLESTON, S.C. —
College of Charleston forward Ante Brzovic had a black eye, which he wears as a badge of honor in this extra special season.
Brzovic got the shiner when he collided with teammate Dalton Bolon going for a rebound last week in a drama-filled, 71-69 win over UNC Wilmington.
“I think it makes him look tougher,” Bolon said with a chuckle. “He wasn’t that handsome to begin with.”
Brzovic has been plenty tough for the 18th-ranked Cougars (19-1, 7-0 Colonial Athletic Association), scoring 17 points in an 82-54 victory over William & Mary on Monday — their 18th straight win this season.
“We played hard,” Charleston coach Pat Kelsey said. “We measure and value deflections. It tells us how hard we are playing. I think we had 50-something deflections, which I think is a record for us.”
Charleston’s 19 wins are the most in Division I and its ranking, up from No. 22 last week, is the program’s highest since 1999 when the school finished No. 16 in the AP poll.
William & Mary (8-11, 3-3) had its two-game win streak snapped.
Charleston didn’t shoot the ball particularly well – hitting just 38 percent from floor – but that didn’t stop the Cougars from connecting on a season-high 16 3-pointers against the Tribe.
“We’re a shooting team, and we play with a lot of pace,” said Bolon, who hit three of his four 3-point attempts. “We’ve got a lot of guys that really pass the ball well. Passing the ball well opens up guys for shots.”
College of Charleston dominated the glass, grabbing 19 offensive rebounds that led to 23 second-chance points.
“We got off to a great start and shared the ball,” Kelsey said.
Charleston came out hot, scoring on their first six offensive possessions. The Cougars quickly built a double-digit lead. Reyne Smith’s 3-pointer gave the Cougars a 14-2 lead less than four minutes into the game.
“We got into the game really quickly and our defense was solid,” said Brzovic, who had three steals and two assists. “We were doing what the game plan told us to do. We controlled the game from the first minutes.”
Charleston continued to build on its advantage throughout the first half, using a 12-3 run and grabbed a 33-14 lead on Brzovic’s putback with 8:31 to play before intermission.
“They played really well, and I don’t think that was our best game, but they had a lot to do with that,” William & Mary coach Dane Fischer said. “They came out and blitzed on offensive glass early. We really struggled to get into an offensive flow. We just never really got going.”
The second half was much of the same as the Cougars led by as much as 32 points.
Ben Wight had 14 points to lead the Tribe.
William & Mary: The Tribe came in with two straight victories and the CAA rookie of the week award winner Charlie Williams. But the team was quickly in the hole as Charleston opened a 13-point lead less than five minutes in. ... William & Mary finished 0-of-12 on threes.
College of Charleston: The Cougars have continued their success in long-range shooting. They connected on a season’s best 16 3-pointers a game after getting 15 in a win over Elon this past Saturday.
William & Mary goes to Delaware on Thursday night.
College of Charleston goes to Monmouth on Thursday night.

Matthew Kenner and Madison Donnan met at Milk Bar in Raleigh. It’s one of the many bars Kenner owns and operates in the Carolinas. There’s also Dogwood, Whiskey Rose and Hive Nightclub, among other current and upcoming ventures.
Ritual, located on a rooftop at the old Carolina Ale House location on Calhoun Street in downtown Charleston, is the first Tulum, Mexico-themed operation. And it’s a place where Donnan got to apply her interior decorating touch.
Inspired by many a birthday and anniversary trip the couple had been on together to Tulum, Donnan used neutral tones and textures throughout and let natural elements shine, from woven wicker furniture to wispy beige pampas grass. Green plants thrive amid the relaxing oasis.
“In Tulum, everything is made with nature and blends in with nature,” said Donnan. “At a lot of restaurants, there are trees in the middle of a table or right next to you. There’s this idea of you don’t want to chop down the tree for the table; you want to make the table fit around the tree.”
That was part of her inspiration. As for the food and drinks, those are influenced by both Tulum and Charleston cuisines, with a range from Spanish tapas to fresh seafood.
You can start with guacamole and chips or crispy Brussels sprouts and work your way toward a braised beef empanada, Yucatan wings, shrimp and scallop ceviche, a whole fish or tequila mussels.
Pair with cocktails inspired by Donnan and Kenner’s Tulum favorites, like the Tepache Betty, El Jefe Caliente, Cenote Milk Punch and Mezcalita.
Brunch has also been a popular addition. Donnan said the restaurant has teamed up with their downstairs neighbor, Hero’s Doughnuts & Buns, for fried chicken and pepper jelly sandwiches in doughnut buns.
While a DJ spins some EDM and house beats on the outdoor terrace, mimosas and bloody mary’s are served alongside cinnamon rolls, deviled eggs, huevos Tulum, and grilled shrimp and avocado toast.
“We want to create a vibe where daytime goes into nighttime,” said Donnan.
Hence DJs that start before the sun goes down and are still creating a party atmosphere when the stars come out. Events are also big, like an ABBA-themed party that catered to bachelorette groups, and upcoming February matchmaking table swaps and Galentine’s Day celebrations.
Ritual has partnered with Jibe Cycling to bring 40 stationery bikes onto the terrace; there are goals to host more yoga, dance and trampoline classes. The Drip Lounge has administered “hangover IVs” on the rooftop.
“I love getting new ideas and working with local businesses,” said Donnan, who works in marketing in addition to design.
Ritual, located at 145 Calhoun St., is open 4 p.m. to around midnight Monday through Wednesday, 4 p.m.-1:30 a.m. Thursday, 12 p.m.-1:30 a.m. Friday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to around midnight on Sunday.

And Charleston (No. 32) is highlighted for its still unopened International African American Museum, of which it says, “Charleston’s brutal history of slavery can be overshadowed by a romanticized portrait of a city with charm, award-winning restaurants and plantation gardens. The planned opening of the $100 million International African American Museum this year will help comprehensively display the city’s complicated past.”
“Imagine tweaking our current voting system so that you don’t have to head back to the polls for a runoff. Instead, you would rank all candidates when you went into the voting booth on election day. You’d still pick your top candidate. But then you’d pick the second-best one – in case your person didn’t win the election. And then you would keep ranking each candidate on the ballot.”

Things haven't come easy for No. 22 College of Charleston, but the Cougars keep moving in the right direction.
Charleston will play for the third time in six days Monday when William & Mary visits Charleston, S.C in Colonial Athletic Association play.
Charleston (18-1, 6-0 CAA) holds the longest winning streak in the country at 17 games.
William & Mary (8-10, 3-2) is getting its act together at an ideal time. The Tribe have won consecutive games for the first time since November.
One thing Charleston coach Pat Kelsey likes about his team is that he doesn't sense fear when the Cougars might get in a bind.
"Dudes who weren't afraid," Kelsey said. "They were ready for the moment."
Charleston and William & Mary both played at UNC Wilmington last week. They have something in common because both teams produced two-point victories, with the Tribe prevailing 69-67 on Saturday.
The Tribe led for the last four minutes in the UNCW game on the way to winning a true road game for the first time in eight tries this season. Three Tribe players fouled out, so the team persevered.
It might be a matter of finding the right combinations at the right times for William & Mary.
"We had a number of different lineups out there in the course of the game," coach Dane Fischer said. "One of the best things this team did throughout the course of the game is have such a collective effort for the task at hand."
The stakes will rise for William & Mary, which will be playing a ranked opponent for the first time this season. Charleston is 12-0 in home games.
"We've got an unbelievable opponent Monday in Charleston," Fischer said. "We've got to have all hands on deck Monday."
The Tribe will count on experiences in road games at Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and NC State along with the UNCW game to draw on for this assignment.
The Cougars made 15 of a season-high 45 shots from 3-point range in Saturday's 78-60 victory against Elon, which surprisingly led at halftime. The 15 baskets from beyond the arc were also the most this season for the team.
Dalton Bolon of Charleston has posted a double-figure point total in eight of the last nine games. In those games, he has gone above 20 points three times. For the season, he averages a team-best 13.5 points per game.
Gabe Dorsey of William & Mary is the CAA's leader in 3-point shooting percent at 44.5 percent despite going just 1-for-4 on Saturday.
Charleston racked up a season-high 16 offensive rebounds in the Elon game. The Cougars and William & Mary entered the weekend ranked first and second, respectively, in the CAA in offensive rebounding.
This will be the Cougars' third home game since moving into the Top 25. They've trailed in the second half in each of the first two of those before overcoming Delaware and Elon.
Monday's outing will mark the middle game of three road contests in six days for William & Mary.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Dawn Staley accepts that Aliyah Boston’s decorated career at South Carolina is steadily coming to an end. So the Gamecocks coach plans to enjoy every moment Boston has left on the court.
The 6-foot-5 senior had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 1 South Carolina to an 81-50 victory over Missouri in Sunday. It was Boston’s 71st double-double, moving her one away from the program’s all-time record that’s held by Shelia Foster.
“We’re savoring everything that she brings to the table,” Staley said of Boston, who is the expected No. 1 pick in the next WNBA draft. “There’s going to a huge void.”
And not just for the Gamecocks, Staley believes: “For all the things she does for women’s basketball, we’re going to miss her.”
Boston’s 11th game with double-figure points and rebounds this season kept the Gamecocks perfect at 18-0 and 6-0 in the Southeastern Conference. Zia Cooke added 16 points and Ashlyn Watkins 13 for the Gamecocks.
Missouri (14-5, 3-3) lost its third straight after opening SEC play with three consecutive victories. Lauren Hansen finished with 14 points to lead the Tigers.
The Tigers, which ended South Carolina’s perfect start a season ago, came out firing from the field and ready to go toe-to-toe with the Gamecocks in the paint. Hansen had three 3-pointers in the opening quarter and the game was tied at 17 in the final minute of the period.
That’s when South Carolina pushed the pace and left Mizzou in the dust with a 30-11 burst. Cooke had a pair of 3s in the surge and backup point guard Raven Johnson led charge with four assists and two steals in the second quarter.
One of Johnson’s top dimes was a bullet pass from the right side of the key through several defenders to Brea Beal for an easy layup.
Cooke like how her team locked into to its defense and fastbreak to shut down the Tigers’ outside game, saying, “Once we were able to do that, the lead started to open up.”
Missouri played its typical physical game against South Carolina. Tigers center Jayla Kelly fouled Kamilla Cardoso hard and the 6-foot-7 player fell flat to the floor. Staley yelled at officials, calling for a technical foul to no avail.
Missouri had just three field goals and one rebound in the second quarter as the Gamecocks led 47-28. South Carolina kept piling on in the second half to lead by as many as 33 points.
Missouri coach Robin Pingeton said South Carolina’s talent and depth took control as the game wore on. She said her team has a week to reflect and refocus on playing winning basketball.
“I feel like our locker room is rock-solid. I feel there’s great maturity in there,” she said. “I feel like this is a team that’s really resilient and understands the big picture of where we’re trying to get to.”
Missouri: The Tigers could not hold up down low against the taller, stronger Gamecocks. They were outrebounded 52-22 overall and 23-4 on the offensive glass. South Carolina’s pressure forced 15 turnovers and the Tigers committed 26 fouls.
South Carolina: The defending national champions once again showed a fire to put away opponents as they drive toward more trophies. It will take a team playing out of its mind, South Carolina performing way below par or both for anyone to slow this team down.
South Carolina finished a satisfying week of victories. Between Sunday’s win and a 95-66 drubbing at Kentucky this past Thursday night, the Gamecocks defeated the only two teams to beat them last season in consecutive games. “It’s good,” Cooke said, “But we want to win them all.”
Missouri: Returns home to play Tennessee on Jan. 22.
South Carolina: Goes to Vanderbilt on Thursday night.
