While Balayage is the technique of painting the hair, Ombre focuses on the style of the hair. It is the transition from a lighter shade to a darker shade. Typically, Ombres work best for brunettes, but the style can is suitable for blondes too. To achieve the effect of an Ombre, there must be a smooth transition between colors.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The City of Charleston says it is looking to spend millions of dollars to create a creek and additional wetlands to address street flooding and drainage issues on over 500 acres of Johns Island.Rather than paving the area over for the Barberry Woods Drainage Improvement Project, the city said it is opting for a more ecological approach.“Creating our own semi-natural creek system.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The City of Charleston says it is looking to spend millions of dollars to create a creek and additional wetlands to address street flooding and drainage issues on over 500 acres of Johns Island.
Rather than paving the area over for the Barberry Woods Drainage Improvement Project, the city said it is opting for a more ecological approach.
“Creating our own semi-natural creek system. It will look like a natural creek, even though we had dug it out,” Charleston Stormwater Management Director Matthew Fountain said. “Then, you would build a flood plain on either side of the creek that can hold water during storm events that would be built-in with natural vegetation.”
Photos captured the flooding following a heavy storm in the Barberry Woods neighborhood near Maybank Highway and River Road, which the project is named after.
City officials said the project will make the flooding drain faster and be less frequent.
Two homeowners who have been living in Barberry Woods since the mid-2000s said they love where they live, but a fix to their drainage problems has been long overdue.
“Once we do get the flooding, the flooding remains, and there’s no way for it to go,” homeowner Shannon Baker said. “It turns into a swimming pool scenario. I tried to get a vehicle out, and I did it a little too early, so I lost that [GMC] Yukon.”
“A week after I bought the house, my mother and my brother were visiting and came out onto my top porch, and they saw somebody kayaking past my house,” homeowner Kim Hicks said.
The city said a combination of developments downstream and blocked drainage ways are to blame for the flooding.
They also said the project was first inspired several years ago by the Dutch Dialogues. The city, along with the Historic Charleston Foundation, created the Dutch Dialogues in 2019 to discuss ways to work with the land that’s already there to reduce flooding risks on the peninsula, in West Ashley and on Johns Island.
“Don’t fix flooding in a way that eliminates what makes Charleston special,” Fountain said. “You need to find a way to do both. This is trying to find a way to maintain that rather than just paving the whole area over in concrete and asphalt.”
The city said they’re finishing the final designs and expect construction to start sometime in 2024.

One of the largest properties on Johns Island could be protected from development in a deal using more than $2.16 million in state and county conservation funding.The five adjoining Ravenswood Farm properties along Chisolm Road cover 631 acres of high ground and nearly 81 acres of wetlands, with extensive frontage on the Stono River.“We are very excited about this,” said Meg O’Halloran, chief advancement officer of the ...
One of the largest properties on Johns Island could be protected from development in a deal using more than $2.16 million in state and county conservation funding.
The five adjoining Ravenswood Farm properties along Chisolm Road cover 631 acres of high ground and nearly 81 acres of wetlands, with extensive frontage on the Stono River.
“We are very excited about this,” said Meg O’Halloran, chief advancement officer of the Lowcountry Land Trust. ‘I think it really anchors the rural character of this part of the island.’ ”
The deal calls for the trust to hold a conservation easement on the land, preventing any significant development. That’s what $1.54 million from Charleston County’s greenbelt program and $625,000 from the State Conservation Bank would pay for under a deal the county and state have approved but has not yet been signed and recorded.
“The Ravenswood project is not just about keeping open spaces open,” said Natalie Olson, the land trust’s Sea Islands program director. “It’s about reducing the risk of losing them and keeping Johns Island rural.”
Under the pending conservation deal no more than five residential structures would be allowed on the land. Conservation easements don’t change the ownership of a property, but restrict how it can be used.
“It’s been in my family for about 235 years,” said Lisa Minshew, one of the co-owners. “That property is like a relative to us.”
She said the conservation easement agreement has “been years in the making” and the details are still being formalized.
“These things are more complicated than some people realize,” Minshew said.
Conservation easement deals look at what a property would be worth if it could be developed — as a residential subdivision, for example — compared to what it would be worth if development were not allowed. For the Ravenswood property, the difference was calculated at nearly $3.4 million.
So, the county and state would pay nearly $2.2 million to permanently restrict the right to develop the land and the property owners would forfeit the rest of the development value according to a Charleston County information sheet on the deal. The $1.2 million in development value the landowners would give up would count as a tax-deductible donation to the Lowcountry Land Trust, resulting in substantial state and federal tax benefits.
That’s how conservation easement deals work. The public gets no access to the land, but taxpayer funds prevent or restrict potential development. Charleston County also buys properties outright through its greenbelt program, often for future public parks.
The Ravenswood deal comes amid rapid residential development on Johns Island, where the population roughly doubled between 2010 and 2020. Charleston County is currently planning more than $200 million in road projects to relieve growth-related traffic there.
“One of the unique things about this property is that it has miles of river frontage and road frontage that are visible to people,” said O’Halloran.
On the opposite side of the Stono River there are dozens of docks. The Ravenswood properties have extensive marsh and river frontage, and multiple small marsh islands but would be limited to three potential docks.
Ravenswood has been a part of the island’s agricultural landscape since the 1700s when John Raven Mathews established it as a plantation, according to south-carolina-plantations.com. His son was governor in 1782-83.
Much more recently Ravenswood was known for being a sod farm prior to the Great Recession, when the housing market meltdown caused demand for sod to greatly decrease. Today’s it’s used for farming, timber and equestrian purposes.
“We raised ostrich out here, that was a thing for a while,” said Minshew. “We did Christmas trees. We had cattle at one point.”
She said future plans could involve planting Long Leaf Pine. Conservation agreements typically allow for ongoing agricultural uses and are focused on restricting development.

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - If you love Mexican cuisine, you have a new dining option in the Lowcountry as of Thursday.
Minero Mexican Grill & Cantina is set to open for dinner on Thursday at the space formerly occupied by The Fat Hen, at 3140 Maybank Highway.
The Neighborhood Dining Group says the opening will mark a new chapter for the Minero name. The Johns Island location will continue its legacy of hand-pressed tortillas and Mexican favorites created by the former downtown Charleston Minero, with the addition of new menu items and an expanded indoor-outdoor footprint.
“We’re thrilled to bring Minero back in a new home on Johns Island, one of Charleston’s most exciting areas,” Neighborhood Dining Group President David Howard said. “Fans will recognize the same heart of what we do at Minero – attention to detail, great ingredients, and honoring Mexican traditions – but with a fresh take on both the menu and atmosphere. We can’t wait to serve Charleston once again and are appreciative of the warm welcome from the great residents of Johns Island.”
The kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Shamil Velazquez, also of the group’s Delaney Oyster House, bringing inspiration from his Puerto Rican upbringing and chef-driven techniques to the newest outpost of the concept.
The menu is anchored by Minero staples like charcoal-grilled wings, tacos, and the burrito, as well as the tradition of making corn tortillas from scratch daily, but with exciting new additions for a fresh take on the Mexican concept.
Velazquez incorporates Latin American influences into the menu, including more seafood dishes, crudos, and ceviches, while drawing from Mexico’s coastal regions for inspiration.
“We knew the Minero favorites weren’t going anywhere on the menu, but we wanted to bring some additional elements, especially to highlight some of the great ingredients we get in the South and along our coast,” Velazquez said. “Mexican food can be celebrated through many different techniques, and I’m looking forward to bring a new perspective to the concept with the same emphasis on local ingredients and quality offerings.”

Minero’s menu honors Mexico’s culinary traditions while weaving in inspiration from the culinary South.
The menu features longstanding Minero favorites including Charcoal-Grilled Wings tossed with Valentina; a Salsa Tasting including Benne, Rojo, and Verde; and the Minero Burrito featuring red rice, beans, Oaxaca cheese, crema, poblano, cabbage, cilantro, salsa verde, and avocado.
Exciting new additions include the Fajitas Al Carbon with charred onions, bell peppers, pico de gallo, crema, guacamole, red rice, beans, and housemade flour tortillas; the Yucatán Style Local Catch featuring crispy fingerling potatoes, pickled yum yum peppers, and pibil sauce; and Shrimp & Snapper Ceviche made with a ceviche sour michelada mix, cucumber, peanut, red onion, mandarin, radish and chips. The restaurant offers five signature tacos, including Fried Catfish or Grilled Fish, Cauliflower, Charcoal Chicken, Grilled Steak, and Pork Al Pastor. Select brunch items will be served on the weekends, including Steak and Eggs and Breakfast Burrito with hash brown, salsa verde, and huevos.
Beverages include the classic Minero Margarita with reposado and añejo tequilas, fresh lime, orange juice, curaçao, and agave, guests can personalize their margarita experience by DIY-ing it, adding a pineapple twist, boosting it for a crowd (the “Party” serves six), or even making it extra with a bottle-down Modelito and a choice of sidecar. Frozen concoctions, such as the Frosé Sangria and the El Santanico, and a comprehensive beer list featuring both Mexican and local options round out the alcoholic offerings, while a zero-proof margarita and refreshers provide plenty of options to abstain.
No reservations are needed. Seating is first-come, first-served.
The restaurant will open for dinner Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Happy Hour is Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The restaurant plans to add daytime service at a later date.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The United States Department of Agriculture’s senior farmers market nutrition program is back. Through the South Carolina Department of Social Services, low-income seniors can access fresh local produce.
For the first time, the program is going statewide. Eligible seniors in all 46 counties will have access to fresh fruits and veggies, not just those in rural or urban areas.
Eligible seniors 60 and older will be given 25 dollars’ worth of vouchers to be used at participating roadside stands and farmers markets from June 1st through the fall. This program is funded by a grant through the USDA.
Connelly-Anne Ragley with DSS says there are a few changes to the application process this year. One of the biggest changes is eligible recipients must complete their application in person at an approved location. Recipients will also be able to get their vouchers the same day.
Ragley says this program not only helps seniors in the state but local farmers as well.
“We know that being able to help South Carolina farmers directly by purchasing these items through stands, vendors, and markets really will help put that money back in the economy,” Ragley says.
Juanita Pinckney and her son Devonne Hammond own and run Fields Market Farm on Johns Island. Hammond says this 3rd generation family business has been part of this program since about the start, and it’s a great way for them to provide for their community.
“From the farmers’ vantage point, we are able to reach probably a lot of consumers who otherwise may not be able to afford to get fresh produce,” Hammond says.
Fields Market Farm says even when they aren’t open, they are and love to connect and serve their community, and others across the state are gearing up to do the same.
DSS says eligible seniors can only apply at a designated location in the county they live in.
