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.

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.

Fleetwood S. Hassell, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very proud to announce 2022 profits that were the fourth best in our 36-year history. Maintaining safe and sound banking practices with consistent lending in this new interest rate environment along with excellent management of operating expenses has resulted in another solid year. Although interest rate spreads have improved, mortgage activity has slowed and intense competition for deposits has emerged. Bond portfolio values have also been impacted by higher rates, which indirectly impacts our capital and book value. We expect these declines to be temporary as investments mature over the coming months. The bank is well positioned to benefit from additional Federal Reserve rate increases, which we believe are coming this year as they continue to fight rising inflation. As we look ahead to 2023 and the opening of our new James Island office in just a few months, the bank's future is bright as we stay the course and continue to build for the future."

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - A year long project and vision to improve the Folly Road corridor has wrapped up another year of research and plans.
The Rethink Folly Road Complete Streets Initiative has a goal to improve congestion and connectivity with pedestrian and bike lanes. Officials hope the work will also improve the value and quality of life along the thoroughfare.
The idea behind the project began in 2015 and Charleston County, Charleston City, Folly Beach and the Town of James Island approved the initiative in 2016. It’s a collaborative effort to study the area, design improvements and secure funding for work.
For the past three years, Toole Design has been working with the county and cities along the corridor to do research and community studies on how to best implement the biking and walking paths.
Lakeesha Dunbar, Office Manager for Tool Design, says the design phase and securing property is often longer than actual construction.
“The last two years is getting the design of the Phase One project done in coordination with the state. And so that’s a big piece in itself. And then since I’ve been on board, um, in the last year, we’ve done quite a few little things to keep it trying to keep the momentum going with the community,” Dunbar says.
Tool design worked with the county on designs and also collaborated with business owners along the road.
“We have to get buy in one because we’re having to get easements and property from property owners along the corridor,” Dunbar explains.
The Tool firm’s contract with the Rethink Folly Road project ends and the end of 2022.
“We’ve been expansion of staff to coordinate the steering committee and the BI monthly meetings. I think just that continued coordination and communication between all of the jurisdictions because there are the multiple jurisdictions along the corridor - that’s key,” Dunbar says.
Going forward, the jurisdictions hope to see phase one completed in the next two years. Phase 1 is the initial phase of the bicycle and pedestrian accommodation project stretching from Lowe’s to Walmart.
Charleston Councilwoman Jenny Costa Honeycutt says in the coming year, people will notice disjointed parts of the paths going in.
“There’s been several improvements within that area already and as different areas like the Chick-fil-A that’s being remodeled as they get improved, you will see isolated, you know, paths and all built in those areas, but along for the long term is going to take a little bit longer to acquire all the property we need,” she says.
Honeycutt compared the goal for Folly Road to how Coleman Boulevard functions in Mount Pleasant – a main road but with bike lanes and sidewalks that connect the nearby community. She says it’s a grand vision of a safe community road that will take a while to accomplish and asks people to be patient as the county and involved cities continue designing and construction.
“So, you’ve got the county who’s sort of the applicant that’s sort of running the operation, you might call, but you have all of those stakeholders involved in at the table and as we progress, we want you know, the community’s input, particularly business owners along the corridor to make sure that it reflects what the community wants,” Honeycutt says.

The South Carolina Public Charter District (SCPCD) is looking into the governance of Charleston Advancement Academy High School (CAA), officials confirmed this month.
After reports of an impromptu four-day closure of the school’s James Island campus and staff concerns about recent action of the school’s board of directors, the newspaper asked the state oversight agency Jan. 4 whether it was investigating the school.
“We are inquiring about these matters,” SCPCD Superintendent Chris Neeley replied tersely, offering no details.
CAA is an alternative public charter school with students ranging in ages 14 to 21, which allows older students to complete high school graduation requirements. The school is not affiliated with Charleston County School District, but is chartered through SCPCD.
According to sources, the school’s board of directors informed CAA staff Jan. 2 via email that the James Island campus would temporarily close Jan. 3 to Jan. 6 and that all students and staff would need to relocate to the academy’s campus at Trident Technical College in North Charleston when school resumed after a holiday break.
One employee, who asked to remain anonymous, said CAA teachers then scrambled to communicate with students who were expecting to return to the James Island campus Jan. 4 after an e-learning day Jan. 3.
“Staff members sent emails and texts to our students to let them know the James Island campus would be closed,” the staff member said. “We put [personnel] at the front door of the campus to let students who showed up know about the closure.”
A second employee, who also asked to remain anonymous, said board members reportedly attributed the campus closure to administrative problems. This unexpected school closure came just weeks after the board told staff Dec. 13 that the school’s administrative director resigned.
“After a staff meeting [Jan. 3], the board just seemed very evasive when asked about the future of the James Island campus — which made it seem [like it was] going to close,” the second staffer said.
James Island campus open again
As students flooded the Trident campus Jan. 4, a staffer said it felt like the school was in total chaos.
“The students have not been able to receive transportation, because the [James Island campus] was closed on such short notice and parents have no way to get them there. School transportation has been very limited. Parents have been calling the staff and complaining, but we feel helpless because we do not know what to tell them.”
The first employee said there were three to four staff members per classroom and neither students nor employees had adequate space at the Trident Tech campus with two student bodies combined into one location.
“Students have always had the opportunity to flow freely between the classrooms and teachers to find an environment that best suits their learning at that moment,” the staff member said. “But right now, there’s no quiet space. It’s crowded and loud everywhere. People are anxious and confused. I’ve overheard multiple conversations between students wondering what’s going on.”
One 20-year-old-student, Hollywood resident Luca Otto, said he holds two part-time job positions as he completes his education. He told the City Paper that the James Island campus closure negatively affects students.
“[The closure] forces students to either forgo work, remain in an unstable home environment from which they otherwise would have had some escape, or travel farther at the expense of their own or their guardians’ time and money,” Otto said.
Last week, a sign was posted on the front door of the James Island campus that read: “Charleston Advancement Academy at James Island will be closed Jan. 3-6. Please check your school email for updates in regard to Jan. 9-13.”
The CAA board chair Nadine Deif told the City Paper that the James Island campus would reopen Jan. 9. It did.
The first employee told the City Paper the board informed staff on Jan. 6 that science teacher Kenny Brinckman would step up as interim assistant director to oversee the James Island campus when it reopened. Brinckman declined to comment with the City Paper.
“Nobody’s giving up yet — but this is a Band-Aid fix,” one of the staff members said. “We love Kenny, but this isn’t his wheelhouse. And if we don’t get a more permanent fix soon, we’re going to start losing students. And if we start losing students, we are going to lose funding.
“People are going to lose their jobs. And that’s not something that can be undone. Once that funding and those jobs are gone, there’s nothing we can do. We just have to hold on tight and hope that the state intervenes before this board runs our school into the ground. The fight is far from over.”

“He’ll become the first person in state history to be formally sworn into office for a third time. His new four-year term will, in all likelihood, be the capstone of a public service career that will span almost a half century,” the network reported.

Fox News' Greg Gutfeld hammered President Biden after a second batch of classified documents were found, asking, "What is it with the Biden's leaving important stuff everywhere?"
Fox News confirmed Wednesday that aides to Biden discovered at least one more batch of classified documents from his time as vice president. The latest discovery comes after it was revealed Monday that aides found roughly 10 classified documents in a private office at the Biden Penn Center in Washington, D.C.
"You got Hunter just leaving stripper babies and laptops all over the place. [You] got the gun - Hallie leaving a gun in the trash can. You got the laptop. You got the diary. Ashley's diary at a halfway house," Gutfeld said on "The Five" Wednesday.
"These are all really important things. Guns, diaries, laptops. Joe's a regular Johnny Appleseed with classified information."
Biden addressed the document issue at the North American Leaders' Summit in Mexico City Tuesday, saying he takes classified information seriously.
The 46th president also praised his lawyers, adding they did the right thing by immediately turning the documents over to the National Archives.
"They did what they should have done. They immediately called the [National Archives]… turned them over to the Archives, and I was briefed about this discovery and surprised to learn that there were any government records that were taken there to that office," he said.
"But I don't know what's in the documents. My lawyers have not suggested I ask what documents they were."
Gutfeld joked that the latest revelations over classified documents was "the worst thing to happen since the Civil War."
"It's worse than 911. It's worse than the Civil War and the Red Hot Chili Peppers combined."
Co-host Jesse Watters questioned what Biden was doing with the documents.
"I do know that if right now we have ten documents and counting at the end of this, he could have more classified documents out there than Donald Trump had at Mar a Lago. I'm keeping a little tally here," he said.
"It's funny that he was surprised to find that they had these documents in a closet. I'm sure he's going to be surprised when he finds out the Chinese wired his family $6 million. If you read the story, it said they discovered at least one additional batch at least. So there's more coming."
Watters questioned where the second batch of documents was found, suggesting the only place he could think of was Biden's "place in Georgetown."
"You know, the place that Hunter got the key for him. And it was an office that he shared. There was a guy named Mr. Dong from China. Remember, Hunter was bringing strippers in there, [a] highly secured place where Hunter brought strippers to have sex with," he explained.
"And how secure is this UPenn Center, in the middle of Georgetown? A hop, skip and a jump from the Chinese embassy. Did they have those, like, motion sensor laser beams that acrobats and James Bond movies have to tumble over into a closet? It's next to a steakhouse, Judge Jeanine. I don't think this place is Fort Knox. And why is he all of a sudden moving? Why is he cleaning out the UPenn Biden Center?"
