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 Richburg, 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.

After 10 people were killed in a racially motivated shooting on Buffalo’s East Side in May 2022, local and national mental health organizations stepped in to offer support to the neighborhood's residents. Some have since left, but the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) has remained, offering a culturally affirming form of counseling its leaders say has helped participants cope better than a traditional therapy setting.
Sawubona Healing Circles — the Zulu word loosely translates to “I see you" — are virtual group sessions in which participants collectively discuss their shared traumatic experience. They're held at least three times a week, and their leaders say participants have benefited from a structure drawing on traditional Black and African psychology principles like community, spirit and the connection.
“The community needed this kind of response," said ABPsi President Donell Barnett. "People come into a space where that experience is validated, that experience is seen, that it’s talked through and it also gives us an opportunity to give them culturally affirming coping skills that you normally don’t see in a traditional therapy setting."
Sawubona Healing Circles were originally developed in response to COVID-19. By August 2022, the NYS Office of Mental Health had partnered with ABPsi to continue providing support for Buffalonians affected by the shooting. The New York State Office of Mental Health did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
In some parts of South Africa, the word "Sawubona" is a customary greeting, but for ABPsi, it's used a bit differently.
“We use the term in the sense that ‘I see your humanity, I see your culture, I see who you are as a person,’” Barnett said. “That resonates with a lot of people, particularly Black people and other minoritized communities in a world where people feel the sting of oppression, racism and economics.” Association of Black Psychologists President Donell Barnett
In a world that Barnett says often aims to render Black people invisible, Sawubona Healing Circles offer an affirming model of mental health and wellness.
“When you draw on a lot of principles that come out of the discipline of Black and African psychology, which emphasizes community, spiritness and the connections that we have with one another, it emphasize our intergenerational connections from even our ancestors to now into the future,” he said.

'The love is real': Young people's stories capture life growing up on Buffalo's East Side
Sawubona Healing Circles work to interrupt trauma responses at the root to keep people from developing unhealthy coping mechanisms, including paths leading to substance abuse. Put simply: to "see" them.
Because of the communal nature of the circles, people are not only talking about what they are experiencing and how they’re feeling, but they’re also creating bonds and networks of support with each other.
“There’s collective wisdom that comes from that, which is affirming,” said Tanie Lodge, psychologist and project lead with ABPSI Sawubona Healing Circles. “People feel more empowered to resist the impact of the racial trauma that’s happening. When we don’t have avenues to say, ‘Hey, this is racial trauma, this is how it’s impacting me, these are my responses and this is how I’m interacting with others,’ we internalize it. Internalizing it is what creates the psychological distress. That’s where you see the depression, the anxiety, the addiction, violence and things of that nature.”
Lodge says the process for handling racial trauma is a bit different from the way a trained psychologist might handle PTSD or anxiety. When participants report being afraid or hesitant to go into a grocery store due to the potential of experiencing a mass shooting there, their concern is rooted in the fact that such violence was enacted on their community.
“It’s not like it’s this farfetched thing, it occurred. So it’s reasonable that people have some ambivalence or might even be hypervigilant in a response to that," she said. "When you just think about everything that’s happened throughout the country, some of this fear (and) anxiety is reasonable.”
In the wake of the Buffalo shooting, participants have also seen their racial trauma compounded by other racially-motivated killings and continued systemic issues. Sawubona is guided by what people bring to each healing circle, and is working to help participants navigate both new and old, single-event and continuing traumas.
“We want people to reconnect with their spiritual selves," Lodge said. "We want them to reconnect with understanding what our ancestors did to help us stay grounded and move forward when we had these kinds of atrocities happen in our community throughout history.”
Lodge said many participants have found success in using rituals, affirmations and meditations, to help them feel “in order and not off balance."
Sawubona Healing Circles aren't covered by insurance or Medicaid, and you won't find them on any list of evidence-based practices because, Barnett says, "All of that has to do with systemic structures." He hopes their work will lead to more culturally affirming services as a part of the standard mental health service array.
"The country is ready and certainly BIPOC communities are ready for therapeutic approaches that really speak to who they are as a person."

A Lander University professor was recently caught on camera comforting a student's baby during class
GREENWOOD, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Peterra Richburg brought an unexpected guest to her Math 201 class at Lander University, her two-month-old daughter Aria.
“I was really nervous like everybody was going to be like why does she have a baby with her,” said Richburg.
After a change in childcare that day, Richburg brought her daughter to class.
Her classmates and professor, Dr. Samuel Reed, were excited for Aria to join them for the hour and 15-minute class.
Aria fell asleep after being fed, but when Richburg went to the restroom, her daughter woke up and started crying.
“I thought, well, I could either just pick her up and see if I could comfort her or I could let her keep crying and try to teach over top of a crying baby,” said Reed.
So the Associate Professor of Mathematics at Lander University comforted the two-month-old while teaching the day’s lesson.
“Some of my students were like, oh my goodness, he just picked up this baby. And I quickly reassured them I’m a dad, I know what I’m doing. Everything is going to be okay,” he said.
Richburg took some photos of Reed holding her child and shared them on social media.
“From the time I told my advisor that I was pregnant and like I was scared I was going to leave Lander, move back to Charleston and just go to Charleston Southern and be two years behind. I was like I have to leave because I was like I don’t know what I was going to do but they helped me every step of the way,” she said.
On top of studying Elementary Education, Richburg is raising her newborn, commutes an hour one way to get to class, and drives DoorDash some nights to earn extra money.
“It’s hard, but I got it,” said Richburg.
Doctor Reed wants to help Richburg achieve her goals in any way he can, just like many other professors at Lander University.
“She is just such a bright and capable student I really couldn’t be more proud,” he says. “We’re dedicated to serving our students.”
Reed says Aria is welcome back to his class anytime. However, while Richburg wants to bring her back to campus at some point, she doesn’t know if Aria will be in attendance for Math 201 again anytime soon.

YORK COUNTY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – The York County Sheriff’s Office says its investigating three inmate overdose cases.
Leaders say the overdoses occurred inside one housing unit at the York County Detention Center.
Below is the official release from the sheriff’s office.
YORK COUNTY, SC – York County Detention Officers are investigating three inmate overdose cases inside one housing unit at the York County Detention Center. Between September 7, 2022 at 11:30 p.m. and September 8, 2022 at 12:15 a.m., three inmates were found by officers unresponsive in their cells. NARCAN was immediately administered to the inmates and all were taken to local hospital facilities by EMS for further assessment and care.
The first inmate was found around 11:30 p.m. As a precaution, detention staff increased inmate well-being checks from every 30-minutes to 15-minutes. During these checks two more inmates were found unresponsive.
The initial investigation has concluded that on September 6th, information was given to detention staff about possible pills being distributed in a specific housing unit.
Working on this information, detention staff conducted a search of the suspected housing unit.
During the search, inmate Tyquan Rodriguez Green, 25, of Charlotte, NC, was attempting to dispose of 95 pressed fentanyl pills in a toilet.
Detention staff were able to retrieve the pills before they were flushed.
He was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule II Narcotic and Possession of Contraband.
A follow up search of the housing unit was conducted during the day on September 7th, and inmates Keon Arquis Davis, 27, of Rock Hill, and Tyler Mitchell Fesperman, 27, of Rock Hill, were found to be in possession of approximately 40 pills. Both were also charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule II Narcotic and Possession of Contraband.
One of the inmates that overdosed on the night of September 7th, Jacob Dwayne Hall, 29, of Clover, SC, was found to be in possession of 24 pills.
Hall was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule II Narcotic and Possession of Contraband. Hall’s cellmate Leroy Westberry III, 30, of Rock Hill, was also charged the same. Inmate Westberry did not overdose.
The two other inmates that overdosed, Colton Lukas Haire, 25, of Fort Mill, and Trampus Keith Faile, 46, of Richburg, SC did not have additional pills in their possession and were not criminally charged.
“It is clearly disturbing as to how these pills were brought into the facility, and even more so the life-threatening risk that the inmates posed on themselves by taking such a dangerous narcotic,” said Sheriff Kevin Tolson.
After the overdose incidents another intense shake down search of the housing unit was conducted, and no additional pills or contraband were located.
“We are searching the entire facility and all inmates for any further pills,” said Tolson. “This is the first time that this large of an amount of contraband has made it past our stringent security screenings, and we will work to prevent something like this to happen again.”
It is unclear how Tyquan Green, who has been in custody at the YCDC since August 25, brought the pills into the facility. During the arrest and booking process all inmates are physically searched several times and put through a body scanner.
The pills were not discovered or seen during those searches.
Additional housing unit searches have not found any more pills.
All inmates taken to the hospital have since been returned to the YCDC. The investigation is ongoing.

$423 million investment will create 496 new jobs over the next eight years COLUMBIA, S.C. – Governor Henry McMaster and the S.C. Department of Commerce today announced that ...
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Governor Henry McMaster and the S.C. Department of Commerce today announced that E. & J. Gallo Winery (Gallo), a global wine and spirits company, will build a new state-of-the-art production facility and distribution center in Chester County to support future business growth and its long-term innovation plans. The $423 million investment will create 496 new jobs over the next eight years.
“Gallo’s investment will transform Chester County and contribute greatly to South Carolina’s economic prosperity. Creating a business environment in which world-class brands can grow and thrive is critical to South Carolina’s long-term economic success, especially in our rural communities,” said Governor Henry McMaster. “We are glad for their partnership and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”
Providing bottling and canning capacity as well as warehousing and distribution for the company’s growing portfolio of wine and spirit brands, the new South Carolina facility will allow Gallo to better meet customer demand on the East Coast, while reducing its overall carbon footprint. Given Chester County’s proximity to the Port of Charleston, this new location will also serve as a hub for Gallo’s import and export business.
“We could not be more appreciative of the collaboration and support shown by the state of South Carolina, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, and those in Chester County along with all of the public and private entities who have embraced this project throughout the planning process and have welcomed us to the community,” said Gallo CEO, Ernest J. Gallo.
Construction on the new facility is set to begin almost immediately, with the first phase of the project on track to be completed in October of 2022. Gallo is working closely with readySC to prepare for hiring and various workforce training needs. Individuals interested in joining the Gallo team should visit www.gallocareers.com/southcarolina for more information.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. A $16 million Rural Infrastructure Fund grant was also awarded to Chester County to assist with costs of the project.
Last month, the S.C. Department of Commerce went before the Joint Bond Review Committee and the State Fiscal Accountability Authority and received authorization for $8 million in bonds to offset costs of off-site mitigation under the Economic Development Bond Act.
“Cheers to E. & J. Gallo Winery on today’s big announcement that the company is establishing operations in South Carolina. We often say economic development is a team sport in S.C., and this project demonstrates the true collaboration on the local and state levels and beyond. Gallo’s $423 million investment and the 496 new jobs in Chester County will transform the region. We take pride in our state’s business-friendly environment, and we welcome Gallo to our roster of world-class companies within our borders.” -Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt
“We are delighted that E. & J. Gallo selected Chester County as the home for their new East Coast operation. This is a project of regional significance, and Gallo selected us after an extensive search by J.M. Mullis Inc. They determined that our strong manufacturing base and proximity to talent were the key determining factors. Chester County is in a great strategic location along the I-77 corridor between two metros: Charlotte and Columbia. We are honored to have this company locate in Chester County.” -Chester County Council Chair Dr. Wylie Frederick
“E. & J. Gallo Winery is a first-rate, world-class, family-owned company. The city of Lancaster is thrilled to partner with E. & J. Gallo Winery and our across-the-river neighbors to bring good jobs, fine wines and spirits and economic vitality to our region.” -City of Lancaster Mayor Alston DeVenny
“The town of Fort Lawn is very excited that E. & J. Gallo Winery has chosen our area for this expansion of their operations. We are looking forward to working with them as they continue to grow and develop this distribution network. Gallo’s rich family history and sense of community are just what we need here in Fort Lawn and Chester County. E. & J. Gallo Winery has shown that they are a great neighbor and supporter of their community, and they are making a substantial investment and commitment that will benefit Fort Lawn and the surrounding region. We are confident this will help attract other companies to join in what is sure to be great things for the Fort Lawn community.” -Town of Fort Lawn Mayor Carlton Martin
“South Carolina Ports is thrilled to be an integral part of E. & J. Gallo Winery’s global supply chain. This family-owned, California-based company has seen sustainable growth with both wine and spirits. Gallo’s $423 million investment to open a wine bottling and distribution plant in Chester County relies on the ability to import through the Port of Charleston. SC Ports’ efficient operations and reliable service meet the needs of this global wine industry leader.” -SC Ports President and CEO Jim Newsome
“The proposition of the I-77 region as an ideal location for corporate investment is truly validated when E. & J. Gallo, the nation’s largest winemaker, selects it for their East Coast operations hub. Distribution will be a priority component of this expansion and fortunately the I-77 region is within a single day’s truck drive of 42% of the U.S. market, including five of the 10 fastest-growing U.S. metro areas. This location, coupled with the region’s tremendous transportation infrastructure and South Carolina’s pro-business climate, creates a truly compelling opportunity for a company’s sustainable growth.” -I-77 Alliance Interim President and CEO Christopher Finn
“The Lancaster & Chester Railroad (L&C) is thrilled to partner with E. & J. Gallo Winery, supporting the continued growth of their impressive wine and spirits business. Knowing the selection criteria for this project required access to both Class I rail networks and excellent daily service, we were pleased to help them locate a great site. Celebrating its 125-year anniversary, L&C is honored that E. & J. Gallo Winery has chosen Chester County for this generational investment. As part of the Gulf & Ohio Railways family of short lines, L&C welcomes E. & J. Gallo Winery to one of the best economic development regions on the East Coast.” -Gulf & Ohio Railways Chief Business Development Officer Matt Gedney
“Duke Energy is happy to have played a pivotal role in helping E. & J. Gallo Winery understand everything Chester County and South Carolina have to offer. For more than a century, Duke Energy has powered the state and its economy through significant business recruitment and retention efforts, and we look forward to serving our new neighbors in Fort Lawn for many years to come.” -Duke Energy South Carolina President Mike Callahan

Chinese companies have heavily invested in South Carolina across industries and created enormous jobs and opportunities for the local economy.
