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. (WCIV) — Wonderful things can happen when a community comes together.
Lowcountry non-profit, Metanoia SC, is listening to the people who live in North Charleston's Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood.
Over the past 20 years, Metanoia has been implementing programs to meet residents' needs to generate positive changes.
Shawn Saulsberry is the Board Chair of Metanoia.
"It's a huge responsibility because Metanoia is literally serving the area that I grew up in," Saulsberry said.
Saulsberry remembers growing up in what's known as "Charleston Heights," or the "Heights" in North Charleston.
The community played an important part in his childhood.
"I didn't have the organization that we have today, but somehow I ran across those metanoia-type people who saw me, and they invested in me."
His grandfather taught him the importance of entrepreneurship.
"My grandfather taught us to work hard at an early age. He would let us rent the lawnmower from him, and we would go and cut grass in the community, and we would get to keep the profits," Saulsberry said.
Now, as a Senior Manager at the accounting firm Ernst & Young, Saulsberry uses his background of a strong work ethic to encourage the youth in the neighborhood.
Metanoia serves as a youth leadership pipeline.
"I'm not the smartest or the brightest, but I do know how to work hard, and I also know how to have endurance and not stop and just encourage them. If you do those things eventually, you're gonna find what you love. You're gonna find what you want to do in life, and it's gonna work well for you," said Saulsberry.
Metanoia was launched in 2002 by a coalition of churches across South Carolina.
By definition, Metanoia certainly works well with the community it serves.
"It means to make a positive transformation, kind of take upon a positive change of direction," explained Metanoia CEO Reverend Bill Stanfield.
Rev. Stanfield and his wife Evelyn live in the Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood with their two teenage sons.
Before Metanoia's founding, the couple spent one year getting to know their neighbors and listening to their concerns.
"We really do believe people closest to communities know the solutions to their own problems," said Stanfield.
Stanfield saw this as an opportunity to build on the positive community members saw in their neighborhood.
And Metanoia did just that.
In addition to building leaders, it's the non-profit's mission to also establish quality housing within Chicora-Cherokee.
"We build new homes for some home buyers. We also build new homes for affordable rental, all within the community where prices are going up, and people are finding it hard to afford a place to live," said Stanfield.
The organization also invests in neighborhood assets. They support black businesses on Reynolds Avenue and have a partnership with a local manufacturing company to create jobs in the community.
"There's a systematic way of listening to the community and understanding what the community needs and then coming alongside the needs of the community and becoming an advocate for what the community wants to do," said Saulsberry.

One of the few remaining manufacturing facilities on the Charleston peninsula is scheduled to shut down before the new year as The Post and Courier shifts printing operations to a new location and a newer press in North Charleston.
The two gigantic presses in the former newspaper building at King and Columbus streets, an assemblage of machinery three stories tall and nearly the length of a city block, are expected to print their last editions in December.
The move to a new 48,000-square-foot facility and Evening Post Publishing’s related purchase of a 2008 Goss Magnum Single Width Press is “a big deal,” said Tom Harmon, the company’s director of facilities and manufacturing. “There are not a lot of companies that are investing in printing presses.”
Newspapers are increasingly focused on online subscriptions, which suit modern reading habits while avoiding the costs of printing and distributing papers, but The Post and Courier still delivers printed newspapers to more than 30,000 readers in the greater Charleston area each weekday.
The company will print most of the other 10 South Carolina newspapers it owns at the North Charleston site, as well as print publications it does not own and commercial printing jobs.
Evening Post Publishing Chairman of the Board Pierre Manigault said many community publications would have very limited printing options but for the company’s new press.
“I think a lot of the products that people in the Lowcountry are used to seeing are printed by us,” he said. “I think that, just like we are doing the Uncovered series and helping smaller community newspapers that don’t have the resources, we are trying to boost journalism in South Carolina.”
He said the press will also help the company diversify its revenue through commercial printing jobs.
“It is a pretty big investment, and we think it will pay for itself,” Manigault said.
Harmon said the newer press will do the work of the older two presses it is replacing more efficiently and with higher quality.
“In South Carolina, we are one of the main printers,” Harmon said. “That’s kind of our niche right now.”
Up close, the newer printing press is an imposing piece of machinery, 130 feet long and 40 feet wide. It consumes ink by the barrel and can rapidly turn a huge roll of paper into tens of thousands of printed, collated and folded newspapers, ready for delivery.
The former Post and Courier building in downtown Charleston has two older and larger presses, currently performing their final weeks of service. Replacing them at the World Trade Center industrial park in North Charleston is the newer press purchased from a seller in Sweden, which made its way to Charleston in multiple shipping containers.
Just creating a foundation for the machine in its new location involved eight truckloads of concrete, said Harmon.
“We’ve added a lot of upgrades and redid all the controls, and all the newest bells and whistles,” he said in November. “Right now, we’re at the stage where the press has been completely assembled and we’re going through the test process.”
A newer press in a new location is just one of many changes that followed the 2021 restructuring of Evening Post Industries, a company that traces its roots to The Courier newspaper founded in 1803.
More than 200 years later, the family-owned company was a multi-state business with interests in television stations, multiple newspapers, extensive real estate holdings on the Charleston peninsula, a forestry company, pharmaceutical company, a chain of hospices and a book publishing operation.
In recent years, those holdings were trimmed down, the television stations were sold off and so were the hospices. And in 2021, Evening Post Industries was split into three companies. Today, The Post and Courier and 10 other papers, along with book publishing, commercial printing and White Oak Forestry, are run by Evening Post Publishing Inc.
A different company, Evening Post Industries, owns about 12 acres of real estate on the Charleston peninsula, which is slated for a redevelopment called Courier Square. Those holdings include much of the land between King, Spring, St. Philip and Line streets, as well as the former newspaper building along the east side of King Street between Columbus and Line.
Previously, the company leased vacant land that it owns at Meeting and Columbus streets for the development of the $100 million The Guild apartments and the $38 million headquarters of Greystar, an international real estate manager and developer.
Evening Post Industries CEO Ron Owens said the company has received permission from Charleston’s Board of Architectural Review to demolish the block-long newspaper offices and manufacturing facilities at King and Columbus streets.
“We’re not going to tear it down right away because we don’t know what we’re going to build there,” he said, adding that plans will be worked on over the next year with input from community and civic groups.
The more immediate plans involve a large surface parking lot on the west side of King Street and surrounding properties owned by the company, where the company has received conceptual approval from the BAR for retail businesses, apartments and a senior living facility.
“If everything goes as planned, we should break ground late next year,” Owens said.
The Post and Courier is South Carolina’s largest news organization and has been expanding statewide, with reporters in Beaufort, Bluffton, Charleston, Columbia, Hilton Head, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, Rock Hill and Spartanburg.
“All of the expansion is digital, so that doesn’t affect the printing press,” Manigault said.
The Post and Courier is available in print and online in the greater Charleston area, and online elsewhere. Weekly editions of The Post and Courier are published in print for Columbia and Georgetown. Evening Post Publishing also publishes the daily Aiken Standard and weekly printed editions of the Moultrie News, Kingstree News, North Augusta Star, Summerville Journal Scene, Berkeley Independent and Goose Creek Gazette.
“We’ve been looking at this whole thing since the split-up of Evening Post Industries a year ago, and we’re really looking at it (Evening Post Publishing) as a startup company,” he said. “It’s a little bizarre, looking at it as a 200-year-old startup, but that’s how it is, and we’re looking for the best ways a media company can operate in this era.”

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Although it’s been two months since Hurricane Ian passed through the Lowcountry, Charleston County officials say there are still people trying to recover.
So today, they look to help with the opening of a disaster recovery center.
The center is in partnership with the Charleston County Emergency management program and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
FEMA officials say it is their job is to provide help to survivors of natural disasters and they determined that in places in South Carolina like Charleston county, they need to come directly to the source to get people the help they need.
The purpose of the disaster recovery center is to get more people in contact with aid to help with damages from Ian. FEMA is providing federal aid to residents with property damage or private non-profits.
Specifically, they're looking at those who were not able to get help from their insurance or don’t have insurance.
Although it has been a while since Hurricane Ian, FEMA and Charleston county say there are still people who need help and this is the best way to get them the help they need.
“We always try to make things easy for the survivors, especially when they're going through so much and trying to get their lives back on track. We have found that disaster recovery centers are pretty popular. You know, people just like to meet with someone face to face, and that's what we're trying to do. We want to let the people know that we are here. We're here to help you. We're here to serve you,” Media Relations Specialist for FEMA Nikki Gaskins Campbell said.
Charleston County was one of the three places hit the hardest by Hurricane Ian in South Carolina, according to FEMA. The other two spots being Georgetown and Orangeburg counties, both which will also have Disaster Recovery Centers opening.
FEMA received nearly 3 billion dollars in federal aid to help with recovery assistance and they are offering grants of up to five thousand dollars to people in need.
But FEMA isn’t the only organization who are helping put this together, as other companies are joining them to provide resources to not just the residents of Charleston County but for businesses as well.
The small business association is offering disaster loans to private non-profits, who were affected by hurricane Ian.
With even more assistance available from the county level at these centers, officials say it will have everything residents need to get back on their feet after Ian.
“It's a one stop shop. You can meet with FEMA, but you can also meet with the small business administration. Sometimes we have other agencies there like local nonprofits that also offer assistance. At the end of the day, we like to say, you know, FEMA was a piece of the puzzle, but it truly takes the communities, it takes the nonprofits, it takes the religious organizations, a whole lot of people working collectively to go gather to help survivors get on the road to recovery,” Campbell said.
Organizations available for disaster loans include non-profits like food kitchens, homeless shelters, libraries and community centers as well as others.
The center will open in Charleston county today at 1:00 PM. It will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Saturdays from 9:00 AM to Noon. The center is located at the North Charleston Public Works office at 5800 Casper Padgett Way, North Charleston.
It is not mandatory to come to the recovery center to receive help from FEMA. You can also apply for a disaster grant from FEMA through their website at Disasterassistance.gov or by downloading the FEMA app or calling the organizations phone number at 800-621-3362.
The deadline to apply for a help through FEMA is January 23rd.

Two new retail shops are ready to launch in a Target-anchored shopping center in North Charleston.
“Opening soon” and “Now hiring” signs are posted in front of Advance Auto Parts and Popshelf in North Rivers Towne Center at 7250 Rivers Ave.
They are splitting a formerly 31,433-square-foot vacant space next to a recently opened Buy Buy Baby store. The retail center is owned by LBX Investments of Los Angeles.
Popshelf is a new concept from Dollar General that offers home furnishings, party items, toys and beauty products. It’s geared toward the suburban shopper with a household income between $50,000 and $125,000, higher than Dollar General’s lower-income targeted customers.
Opening dates for the new stores have not been announced.
Tool giant Harbor Freight plans to set up shop in Summerville.
The Calabasas, Calif.-based retailer recently signed an extended lease for a 16,000-square-foot structure to be built at 388 E. 5th North St., also known as U.S. Highway 78, about a block south of the Berlin G. Myers Parkway, according to Dorchester County land records.
The 1.43-acre site, owned by Henbell Summerville HFT LLC of Augusta, Ga., sits east of a Spinx convenience store and gas station and next to Sawmill Branch. It also abuts a retail center where Planet Fitness and Palmetto State Armory are located.
Harbor Freight’s lease is for 15 years with five five-year renewal options. The agreement also grants the tenant the first right of refusal to purchase the property.
In northern Mount Pleasant, Red Bird Hospitality Group LLC plans to open a new Bohemian Bull tavern and beer garden in January in a 6,143-square-foot space at 2668 U.S. Highway 17.
The franchise location for the new bar and grill is the former site of Carrabba’s Italian Grill. It’s also near the newly opened Cabana Burgers & Shakes at 2664 Highway 17.
Bohemian Bull’s flagship venue is on Folly Road on James Island. Another restaurant is in Greenville, with a new site coming to Mauldin in the Upstate and another in Grapevine, Texas.
A Connecticut-based restaurant specializing in rotisserie chicken is close to opening in the Charleston area.
El Pollo Guapo recently applied for its state alcohol license at 1130 Folly Road on James Island where Black Magic Café operated before closing its last Lowcountry location in September after 13 years.
The new restaurant will offer whole roasted chickens, sides, tacos, rice bowls, salads, desserts and other items.
The company’s website says it plans to open by the end of the year and bring a food truck.
Two new car washes are on the way to the Centre Pointe development in North Charleston.
Whistle Express, part of Charlotte-based Magnolia Wash Holdings, is building its first South Carolina location beside Mellow Mushroom on Tanger Outlet Boulevard while Tommy’s Express plans to take over the former Burger King site at Centre Pointe Drive and Tanger Outlet Boulevard near Walmart and Tanger Outlets.
Michigan-based Tommy’s Express has two other locations in the Charleston area on Ashley Phosphate Road in North Charleston and Trolley Road in Summerville. Opening dates have not been announced for either location.
A luxury rental transportation business recently added a second U.S. location in Charleston.
Double Black set up office at 310 Broad St. but has a vehicle lot at 1211 Palm St. in Hanahan. Its other location is in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Case Resor is the owner of both sites, which offer transportation services and party buses for weddings, parties and other outings.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.—The new year brought Shen Yun Performing Arts to South Carolina, where Shen Yun put on its first of two performances on Jan. 2.
Frank Iler, the representative for Brunswick County in North Carolina to the State House of Representatives, was in the audience this evening.
“It’s fantastic,” said Mr. Iler regarding New York-based Shen Yun’s performance. “It’s very different from what we’re used to. We have concerts of different kinds, but we have nothing as exciting as this.”
Shen Yun is dedicated to sharing China before communism with audiences around the world. It uses material from China’s 5,000 years of culture to enrich its productions year after year.
“I’m very anti-communist. It didn’t take long for me to understand that. As a child, I always wanted to go to China. Today, I would not go. I never got to go, but I would not try to go today because of the politics in China,” Mr. Iler said.
“I think the classical performances, the classical traditions there are fantastic,” he said.
“It did point to God, and we all have different ideas of what God is. But it’s very good. It’s excellent, the way it brought out the divine creation and the traditions,” Mr. Iler said.
Also in the audience, this evening was Debbie Smith, mayor of the small beach town of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.
“It was absolutely wonderful, beautiful. The movements, the dance, you could tell they’re very practiced and very talented and obviously dedicated artists in their field,” Ms. Smith said.
“I would say it was very touching. Made you think about a lot of things, life, how you should live, how you should not live,” Ms. Smith said.
“I would say [the performance] was five-star, and I would highly recommend it to anyone,” she said.
