If you're in need of a professional, fast, reliable company for kitchen cabinets, countertops, and remodels, look no further than Stone City Kitchen & Bath.
When it comes to kitchen remodeling in Charleston, SC installing new kitchen cabinets is a great idea. If you're already upgrading or replacing your kitchen countertops, having new cabinets that match the aesthetics of your kitchen makeover is a no-brainer.
At Stone City KB, we believe that everyone deserves an elegant, versatile kitchen with stunning cabinetry. That's why our team will work closely with you to discover the material, texture, and style of cabinets you're craving. Once we do, we handle all the heavy lifting, including cabinet design and installation in your home.
So, why should you install new kitchen cabinets alongside your countertops? Here are just a few reasons:
Many customers install new kitchen cabinets because they're already remodeling their kitchen and need their cabinets to match the aesthetics of their updated space. Do you want your kitchen to feel more open and airier? Do you have specific lifestyle requirements that necessitate a particular cabinet material? Our kitchen cabinet experts can help you find the perfect cabinet setup for your needs.
Having a uniform aesthetic throughout your kitchen and home is important. But from a practical standpoint, new kitchen cabinets often mean more kitchen storage. That's a big deal for families, especially when younger children are involved. If you find that your countertops are magnets for clutter, new cabinetry can help remove the mess and stress less. The more storage your kitchen has, the easier it will be to use your kitchen for cooking and entertaining.
Take a few moments and check out the bones of your current cabinets. Low-quality, cheap cabinets are often a turnoff for potential buyers. If you plan on selling your home in the next few years, one of the best ways to boost resale value is with new cabinetry.
Is it a pain in the side to cook in your kitchen? Whether it's due to clutter, design, or something else, many of our customers want new cabinets so that their kitchen is functional again. New cabinets give you more storage, as mentioned above, but they can also make your kitchen more functional, depending on design and remodeling preferences. If you love to cook for your family and get-togethers, investing in new kitchen cabinets can help you do more of what you love.
Whether you're looking to "wow" a new client or work colleague or just want to make your neighbors a little jealous, upgrading your kitchen cabinets is a great way to do so. Of course, first impressions have always mattered, but particularly so in real estate. When the time comes to sell your home, having custom cabinets and countertops in your kitchen can set you apart from other sellers.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The South Carolina Center for Educator Recruitment Retention and Advancement reported more than one thousand teacher vacancies across the state and the end of last school year. That number has the South Carolina Education Association concerned about what classrooms will look like this fall.
Sherry East, the South Carolina Education Association President, says teacher turnover is a problem she’s been bringing up for years, and this year looks like no exception.
East says she and other members of the association are attending new teacher orientations across the state and hearing about lots of openings, that haven’t been filled as of August.
“So we were very concerned with that number then, because we knew a lot of teachers were holding out until June, and they were going to quit. We were hearing as a lot of our members saying that they weren’t coming back. We’ve been out in the field orientation last couple of weeks that we’re hearing for the normal numbers that are out there,” East says.
Last fall, the annual recruitment and retention report cited more than one thousand vacancies and the number stayed that high in the spring report update as well.
East says that means, throughout the year, substitutes and administrative staff would often fill in to get through the day. East spent August 1st in Aiken County at a teacher orientation.
Charleston County and Berkeley County Schools currently have vacancies posted for substitute teachers for the upcoming school year on Kelly Education Services.
In Berkeley County the district is currently are trying to fill 132 Teacher Vacancies and 10 Teacher assistant Vacancies. To become a Substitute teacher you need a High School Diploma with additional training. The pay is based on your highest level of education. A High School Diploma earns $130 a day, 60 college credit hours earns $150 a day and a certified teacher earns $175 a day.
Kat Low is the President of the Berkeley County Education Association chapter. She echoes East in her thoughts on the shortage as a problem that grew over time.
“It has been a number of years now that teachers have been basically leaving the workforce and we don’t have the teachers to fill those positions, you know, and on top of that, in areas like our Tri County, Dorchester, Berkeley in Charleston, you know, we have to remember that we are growing so we’re a growing population. We need more teachers than we’ve ever needed before,” Low says.
Delegates approved the South Carolina Education Association goals for 2023 in the last week of July. It has goals of fully funding public schools, providing competitive compensation, improving recruitment and retention, increase learning time and invest in school safety.
Advocates with South Carolina Education Association says the teacher shortage across the state is rooted in the state funding level.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The Charleston peninsula is a notoriously dangerous place for walkers and bikers. Thousands of collisions have happened in the past few years.
The state’s transportation department is now ready to do something about it.
Have you ever heard of a “pedestrian scramble?”
It sounds a little unnerving at an intersection like Calhoun and King Streets, but it could make it safer, according to some safety advocates. But how?
Katie Zimmerman, the Executive Director of Charleston Moves says, “ at a particular intersection, all the stoplights are red, allowing for pedestrians to cross wherever for a short period of time. That type of thing will hopefully get ahead of this pretty high number of collisions that we're currently seeing.”
A number of collisions that has steadily been growing over the years with our growing reputation as a walkable, bikeable city to explore.
“It's so good that people are choosing to get out of their cars. But it's just like, we can't continue the way that we are continuing right now,” says Zimmerman.
Several ideas are on the table. Another solution being considered? Put King Street on a “road diet.”
“I think everybody can agree that there's a particular segment of King Street where two lanes of traffic is not functional while people are trying to parallel park. So sort of transforming how that street works, not banning cars, but reorganizing the space so that people can park, people can drive, people can bike, people can walk, without all being on top of each other and harming each other,” Zimmerman said.
This is the next phase in the South Carolina Department of Transportation’s pedestrian and bicycle safety action plan the state agency rolled out in May 2022.
Now it brings solutions to the public for a closer look.
On August 4, SCDOT will hold a public information meeting regarding proposed bike and pedestrian improvements to Downtown Charleston in Charleston County.
The meeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at Bethel United Methodist Church, 57 Pitt Street, Charleston, SC 29401. It will have a drop-in type format with displays for viewing and citizens will have the opportunity to provide written comments. There will be no formal presentation at the meeting.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) -Morgan Griffin, of North Charleston, started to feel the impacts of the formula shortage in mid-February.
“I went to go get more and I had to go to six different stores,” Griffin said.
Since then, it’s been a constant cycle of checking the Formula Finders Facebook group to see what formula is in stock and where. Sometimes, she has to leave work in the middle of the day to check inventory at stores. Some of those stores are over an hour away. This month, the mom of two said things are finally starting to improve.
“There was a point where I didn’t have any formula, and I was like okay well let me try whatever I can find and maybe that will work,” Griffin said.
Griffin isn’t alone. The Formula Finders Charleston Facebook Group currently has 2,100 members, as of Monday.
The Mother’s Milk Bank of South Carolina was developed to receive donated breast milk from women who have extra, mostly to give to hospitals who take care of sick and premature infants. But In May, they started offering donor milk to the general population with a prescription from a pediatrician to serve some families who were having trouble finding formula.
“With the formula shortage, we saw a need to try to help out,” said Dr. Alison Chapman, medical director of the Mother’s Milk Bank of South Carolina.
Medical Director Dr. Alison Chapman says they’ve been able to help some families, but she says there’s been “mixed feelings” because of the expensive price of the milk. The cost comes from pasteurizing and processing the milk, which Chapman says is crucial to making sure the milk is safe for babies.
“We could not offer it for free, but we were able to offer it at a discounted price, however realistically speaking it still is pricey,” Chapman said.
However, Chapman says she thinks people have been recognizing the need. Over the last 3 months, they’ve received 37,000 ounces of breast milk, more than double what they typically receive.
“We have one of the highest premature birth rates in the country and so there’s definitely a need for women to donate any additional or leftover milk that they have,” Chapman said.
Chapman says if the need is still there, they will still have the capability to be able to provide the service of selling the milk on an individual basis. But she says they may need to rethink the cost associated with it, to see if there’s anything they can do to help reduce the cost for families that need it.

Two months after leaving WIVB-TV (Channel 4) and WNLO-TV (Channel 23) as morning and noon co-anchor, Melanie Orlins has resurfaced as a morning anchor at WCIV-TV in Charleston, S.C.
The move to the ABC affiliate is a big step down in market size since Buffalo is No. 52 in the nation and Charleston is No. 91.
However, Charleston is a growing market in a beautiful and historic area and a tweet from Orlins Monday night indicated market size wasn’t as big a factor for the Virginia native as returning to the southern part of the country.
She posted three pictures of herself with her husband, dog and a Charleston beach on Twitter and wrote the following tweet: “Overjoyed with our new start, in our new home … finally back in the SOUTH after 11 years & much, much closer to family.”
Orlins arrived in Buffalo almost five years ago from a Fox affiliate in Harrisburg, Pa., where she anchored the morning news. Before that she was an anchor-reporter at a station in Grand Forks, N.D.
Her final day on Channel 4’s “Wake Up!” after five years at the station was June 3. At that time, she didn’t say where she was headed.
In a two-minute address to the audience in front of co-anchor Kelsey Anderson and meteorologist Mike Cejka, Orlins repeatedly praised the area's people and restaurants and addressed the Buffalo Bills impact on the area.
“In our careers we jump around a lot, I’ve jumped around a lot. This is hands down the hardest goodbye I will ever have to do, it really is,” said Orlins.
She was named Channel 4 co-anchor almost a year after Teresa Weakley left “Wake Up!” in September of 2016 to work at a station in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Weakley was temporarily replaced by Brittni Smallwood before Orlins took over. The delay in naming a full-time co-anchor was partly the result of a change in Channel 4 ownership and the hiring of a new vice president and general manager at the time, Dominic Mancuso.
Since Orlins’ departure, “Wake Up!” has primarily been co-anchored by Kelsey Anderson with Chris Horvatits or Abby Fridmann.
Brianna Betts, the new Channel 4 news director hired Monday, will likely help decide who will replace Orlins on the morning program.
Betts, who most recently has been the assistant news director in Columbus, Ohio, will be busy once she arrives at Channel 4 on Aug. 22. She also will need to fill an opening for “Wake Up!” reporter Jhas Williams, who left last week. And before the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres seasons start, Betts will have two sports openings to fill after the departure of digital sports reporter Mary Margaret Johnson and the upcoming departure of sports anchor-reporter Paul Stockman.
Johnson, who has been the station’s digital sports reporter for three years, left WIVB last week to work for Daemen University as an assistant athletics communication director/new media manager.
Johnson’s departure follows the previously announced departure of Stockman. Stockman, who has been at WIVB for two years, has not said where he is headed. He is believed to be taking a job at a local school district after he leaves WIVB sometime this month.
