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 Summerville, 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.

Through 11 seasons as an NFL star, A.J.

Through 11 seasons as an NFL star, A.J. Green kept a low profile away from the field.
“I’m not the type who needs to have that big spotlight,” Green once told The Post and Courier. “I’m there to play football. I’ve never felt pressure. There’s no pressure for me because I never get too high, get too low. God has blessed me with talent, and I try to use it.”
The former Summerville High School star announced the end of his NFL career on Monday in typically low-key fashion, with a brief post on social media.
“I’ve never been a man of many words, so I’ll keep this short,” wrote Green, who is 34.
“Thank you. Thank you to all who have supported, encouraged, and inspired me throughout my career. Special thank you to the University of Georgia, Cincinnati Bengals, and Arizona Cardinals for the opportunity to pursue my dreams. I’ve stayed true to the game and it owes me nothing. Be blessed.. Love y’all! The next chapter begins...”
One of the top high school players ever from South Carolina, Green played in college at Georgia, was drafted in the fourth round by Cincinnati in 2011, and played nine seasons with the Bengals and two more with the Arizona Cardinals.
He was twice All-Pro and selected seven times to the Pro Bowl, finishing his career with 10,514 receiving yards, 70 career touchdown catches and 727 catches. He will be a candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
At Summerville, Green played for the late John McKissick from 2005-08. He was a four-time all-state pick by The Associated Press, and finished his high school career with 279 catches for 5,373 yards and 53 TDs, at the time fourth on the national high school list.
After McKissick retired in 2015, the coach recalled some of the great plays Green made for Summerville. One time, McKissick put Green on defense as a safety late in a game against rival Stratford. Green intercepted a pass to save the game.
“We knew Stratford would have to pass, so we put A.J. back there on defense,” McKissick said. “He made the play, like he usually did.”
Once, Green made a juggling highlight grab in a game against state power Gaffney.
“Best catch I ever saw,” McKissick said. “It was behind him, and he went back and hit it up, hit it back and finally caught it. Everybody showed it, NBC, ABC, everyone.”
On July 11, 2015, Summerville’s major declared the day “A.J. Green Day” as the star held a summer camp for kids in his hometown.
“If you enjoy doing it, it’s not work, so I never thought of football, even now, as my job,” Green said that day. “Enjoy the game and have fun. Stay focused and work hard at it. I never had this growing up, a camp where I could attend as a kid and learn so much about football and what it takes to be great.”
Green played his first nine seasons with the Bengals, starting his career with five straight 1,000-yard seasons. He is second in the team’s career charts in receptions (649), receiving yards (9,430) and touchdowns (65).
Since he entered the league in 2011, Green is one of only five wide receivers to gain more than 10,000 receiving yards, according to ESPN. Tampa Bay Buccaneers receivers Julio Jones and Mike Evans, Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Antonio Brown are the others players in that group.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - The Town of Summerville announced the approval of the Maple Street Extension project on Monday.
Years after the project was introduced in 2014, Blythe Development Company was awarded the bid to begin construction on the project, which will improve in total a mile and a half of roads throughout Summerville.
The town acquired 90 pieces of property in order to make the project possible with the first of four major projects of the extension being Maple Street, which will be widened from two lanes to four to reduce traffic and improve safety in the area.
The project does not just include Maple Street, but intersection improvements at US-78 adding turn lanes on all approaches, installation of a traffic signal at West Richardson Avenue and new alignment from West Richardson to Parsons Road where it will transition from three lanes to two lanes at the Parsons Road connection.
Summerville Director of Public Works and Town Engineer Russ Cornette has been with the project since the beginning. He says he’s really happy to see the project get approved for construction.
“I think this is the largest purchase order the town of Summerville has ever approved,” Cornette says. “The towns and cities the size of Summerville don’t take on large projects like this; this is kind of a unique situation.”
The cost of the project, including construction engineering and inspection services, will be funded by the Town of Summerville’s Mid-Town Tax Increment Finance District funds up to $11 million Dorchester County Sales Tax Referendum Funds will fund the remaining cost.
“The project purpose is to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety and that whole corridor anytime you have that many cars, taking up that little space that’s there, you’re going to have accidents and we’ve seen that the past four years,” Cornette says. “That extra lanes extra capacity will help congestion and get people moving a little more freely than they are now.”
Construction on the Maple Street Extension project starts in April or May of 2023 with the goal of completion being in the spring of 2025.
“The Maple Street extension project will help alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety,” says Summerville Mayor Ricky Waring. “I am grateful for the support from our agency partners and the Dorchester County voters who supported the transportation sales tax referendum that helped fund this project.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Average gas prices in South Carolina fell by 9.7 cents per gallon in the last week, with a state average of $3.14 per gallon Monday, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 3,028 stations in South Carolina.
The cheapest station in South Carolina was priced at $2.76 per gallon Sunday, while the most expensive was $3.76, a difference of $1.00 per gallon.
Prices in the Palmetto State are 13.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, and now stand 1.9 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

As of Monday morning, the cheapest gas in the Lowcountry was being sold at a BP station in Summerville at $2.85 per gallon.
The national average price of gasoline has fallen 4.4 cents per gallon in the last week, sitting at an average of $3.44 per gallon Monday.
The national average is up 17.5 cents per gallon from a month ago and is 1.7 cents per gallon higher than a year ago, according to GasBuddy data compiled from more than 11 million weekly price reports covering over 150,000 gas stations across the country.
The national average price of diesel fell 5.2 cents in the last week and is at $4.60 per gallon.
“For the first time in 2023, the national average price of gasoline has seen a weekly decline, primarily thanks to a sharp and sudden drop in the price of oil,” GasBuddy Head of Petroleum Analysis Patrick De Haan said. “While the decline in both gasoline and diesel prices is terrific, it’s not unusual to see prices falling in February, which tends to be the month with some of the lowest gasoline prices of the year thanks to seasonally weak demand. For diesel, we’re likely to see more declines, and potentially much more significant in the weeks ahead as imports of distillate have accelerated, leading to a sell off. And, with warmer weather ahead, demand may struggle as well. However, especially for gasoline, high levels of coming maintenance and the eventual transition to summer gasoline could lead today’s declines to reverse down the road. For now, motorists should enjoy the decline, but be wary as we’re likely to eventually see increases again down the road.”

A “first-of-its-kind” health care waste treatment and disposal company is set to open in Summerville.
EcoSteris confirmed that March 1 will be the start date of its "state-of-the art" operations at 112 Fabricators St., according to an EcoSteris news release.
The company claims to be the first facility of its kind nationwide to provide environmental and health care integrated waste treatment and disposal solutions using sustainable technology that meets strict national and international safety standards and regulations, according to the release.
EcoSteris understands that regulated medical waste management is not only an issue of cost and convenience, but it is also a subject of liability, public relations, social responsibility and environmental sustainability, the release stated.
That is why EcoSteris is committed to providing advanced, comprehensive and integrated medical waste solutions that are designed to help health care providers, medical waste generators, and service partners establish safe, sustainable, reliable and affordable waste management and disposal operations that protect our public, preserve the planet and reconcile economic and social needs, the release stated.
The company's focus on sustainable practices and automation is what sets it apart from others, according to Youmna Squalli, president and owner of EcoSteris. The project represents a $6 million investment and will employ between 12 to 16 people.
"The operation is going to be the first of its kind in the industry, fully automated from start to finish," Squalli said via email. "We wanted to carry the sustainable approach not only in the treatment process, but also in the way we operate on a day-to-day basis, hence a lean operation with minimum employees. This will allow us to be aggressive and competitive when it comes to our pricing considering a lower overhead."
EcoSteris offers reliable and affordable off-site medical waste management services for small and large waste quantity generators throughout the state of South Carolina, the release stated. Its service plans include:
“Apart from jobs creation that the business is expected to bring to the community, EcoSteris is committed to deliver essential sustainable services that protect the public from harmful waste,” Squalli said in the release. “Our operation does not involve the use of chemicals or burning of the waste; we follow a clean and environmentally friendly approach. Our tagline line is: ‘Sustainability is our passion,’ which we take to heart, hence why we increased our investment and went an extra step further with our double shredding process post steam sterilization. While the regulations in the state of South Carolina does not require the waste to be shredded, at EcoSteris, our treated waste will go through a double shredding process.
“This will not only reduce the volume of the waste by more than 85% but it will also allow us to have unrecognizable waste that is safe to be recycled or disposed of. This process is going to have a huge positive impact on the landfills of our community from a safety and environmentally perspective and for all our taxpayers.”

Summerville, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Summerville, South Carolina -
Summerville, SC — Lowcountry Eye Care has announced that Coyle Optometry in Summerville will be joining their family of practices. The collaboration and addition of Coyle Optometry is a good match for Lowcountry Eye Care as both are full-service practices that provide a broad range of eye care for patients. With the incorporation of Coyle Optometry, previous owner Daniel Coyle, O.D., will stay on as the lead optometrist at the location.
“We’re thrilled to team up with Coyle Optometry and bring the family-focused approach we’re known for to Summerville,” said Joe Pitcavage, O.D., co-owner and optometrist at Lowcountry Eye Care. “Dr. Coyle has great history serving the community, and his long-established presence in the area makes for a seamless transition. With Coyle Optometry becoming a Lowcountry Eye Care location, it helps Dr. Coyle expand his patient base and treat even more patients in Summerville!”
Originally founded by his father, Coyle Optometry has been serving the Summerville area for 65 years, and the practice has been in its current location for 35 years. Much of the practice’s current technology already matches Lowcountry Eye Care’s typical offerings, such as the Optos retinal imaging device.
“What’s great about Dr. Coyle is how he keeps his care very personal,” said Wes Shealy, O.D., co-owner and eye doctor at various Lowcountry Eye Care practices. “He does most of the eye exam process himself, and that kind of patient-focused care is something we really value at Lowcountry Eye Care. That, paired with the fact that he operates a very modernized practice, made Dr. Coyle a natural fit. We’re always proud to be the Lowcountry area’s dedicated eye care practice and opening a location in Summerville means we get to help even more people!”
Summerville does not currently have any other optometry practices, with eye care options outside of Dr. Coyle’s practice being limited to a number of optical shops. With the integration of the two practices into a new Lowcountry Eye Care location, the intention is to expand treatment and eyewear offerings for Summerville and the surrounding areas.
“I’ve known Dr. Pitcavage and Dr. Shealy for a long time, which is why I trusted them to help take Coyle Optometry to the next level and expand the Lowcountry Eye Care family. I’m proud to join them,” said Dr. Coyle. “The high-quality of care offered at Lowcountry Eye Care practices is something I greatly value, and I know my patients will be happy to hear about all the expansions and updates we have planned.”
The Summerville location, as well as all Lowcountry Eye Care locations, are currently open and taking appointments for new and existing patients.
