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. While the Ombre is a beautiful look, you'll need to work with a professional to get the best results.

Plan approved to replace West Ashley middle school to reduce capacity

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County School Board of Trustees has okayed a plan from staff to replace the current C.E. Williams North campus with a new school.

At a Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday, the board voted to continue the current middle school configuration in West Ashley dividing sixth-grade students from seventh and eighth-grade students who currently go to C.E. Williams South, near West Ashley High School.

The plan that would replace the sixth-grade campus would also allow Pattison’s Academy for Comprehensive Education (PACE) to fund the design and construction of its facilities on the North campus. PACE is a specialty charter school run by a non-profit for students with multiple disabilities. They’re currently operating out of the former St. Andrews Middle School location.

The board committee also approved the expansion of the seventh/eighth grade C.E. Williams South campus by adding eight classrooms.

Despite the new building for sixth-grade students, the district’s plan does not expand capacity. The current building is underutilized with an enrollment of 363 this year. The building capacity is 904 according to data presented at the meeting.

The new building will be built to hold 600 students, with an expansion capacity of 900. This stands in stark contrast to the South campus which is nearing capacity. That building holds 969 students and currently has 835 students.

However, the district contends West Ashley is not growing as fast as it appears. If current projections remain unchanged the North campus is not expected to exceed 431 students in the next six years. The South campus is expected to peak at 848 students over the same time period.

Former West Ashley High School principal Lee Runyon says the district says the district’s plan is not properly taking into account growth in West Ashley.

“I think that the current plan is again short-sighted and smacks of continued use of taxpayer dollars to try and put a Band-Aid on the problem of systemic growth,” Runyon said. “Anytime you’re running an organization, you’re either growing or you’re dying. If the district is projecting flatline growth in a community that is exploding with residential growth, I think that’s poor leadership.”

Parents like Ragan DuBose-Morris say there are plenty of kids in West Ashley, but many parents are opting to send their middle schoolers out of District 10 to seek out more traditional options.

“West Ashley is the only area in Charleston County that does not have a traditional K-12 pipeline so that you can attend at a traditional elementary, middle and high school configuration,” DuBose-Morris said. “That has been a problem.”

The district’s own numbers suggest only 65 percent of students living in West Ashley attend the two campuses. Despite living in West Ashley, DuBose-Morris chooses to take her children to schools in North Charleston. She says whenever a child has to move to a new school there’s a transitional period that disrupts education. She says she wants to eliminate as many of those transitions as possible.

“They [children] have the knowledge of being in an environment for six through 12th grade,” DuBose-Morris said. “So we have stability, they’re not transitioning between schools. The guidance counselors know who they are. Their teachers know who they are. They’re able to progress through a process in which they have support.”

The current configuration was initiated in part to produce more diverse schools. Constituent board chair for District 10 (West Ashley) Rodney Lewis says the schools are now more diverse and the sixth-grade academy model can work. He says the smaller classes away from the influence of older students are helpful for students to enter adolescents.

“Any time there’s a new program it never just jumps off the first two or three years,” Lewis said. “You got to work it. It’s like a business. You start a business you won’t go to the top automatically. You have to grow there. Allow this to grow and you will see how it works.”

The project is part of the Phase Five Capital Buildings Program that is being funded by a one percent sales tax approved by voters in 2020. The project is budgeted for $40 million and is expected to be completed in 2026.

City Council gives first approval to tourism funds for Ashley River pedestrian bridge

Charleston City Council on Tuesday approved the first reading of a measure to use just over $1 million from the city’s Hospitality Fee to support the Ashley River Crossing Project, a plan years in the making to build a bike-pedestrian bridge across the lower Ashley River.

The bridge would tie into the West Ashley Greenway and Bikeway, a widely used trail system spanning inner and outer West Ashley. The bridge would span less than half a mile of water directly south of the T. Allen Legare Bridge, connecting West Ashley and the peninsula and reducing vehicle traffic.

City officials estimate the final cost to be about $41.2 million — and the city is only $1 million shy of that total. The $41 million raised for the bridge so far has come from a combination of local, state and federal funds, including a recent grant for $14 million from the Charleston Area Regional Transportation Study.

“This is a huge win for the community,” said council member Karl Brady. “Once this bridge is completed, you’ll be able to go on the Greenway from Downtown, across the bridge, all the way to my district near the Limehouse Bridge on Johns Island. That’s a huge win for mobility in this city — to be able to do that without ever having to have bikes or pedestrians get on a road.”

City leaders aren’t the only people excited to get the project underway. Katie Zimmerman, executive director of local mobility advocacy group Charleston Moves, spoke ahead of the council’s vote at Tuesday night’s meeting.

“I just wanted to thank [City Council] for [their] continued leadership on the Ashley River bike and pedestrian bridge,” she said. It’s a huge deal. It’s going to be legacy-making for our region. It’s going to save a lot of lives and make commutes a lot more enjoyable.”

Pedestrian safety has been an ongoing discussion in Charleston and South Carolina as a whole. Several pedestrian and cyclist deaths are reported every year as people cross bridges with no dedicated pedestrian walkways or bike lanes. South Carolina ranked No. 4 in the nation for highest pedestrian deaths in the U.S., according to data from the U.S. Census and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration compiled in a January report from Car Insurance Comparison.

City officials and community leaders have stressed the importance of pedestrian access in curbing these unnecessary deaths.

If fully funded, the city believes the construction contract for the bridge would be awarded in March of next year. They estimate the project will be completed in 2026.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – City of Charleston officials are moving forward with their next steps in the multi-million dollar Ashley River Crossing project.

The first reading of moving forward with funding was approved during Tuesday’s Charleston City Council Meeting.

The city is now waiting for the federal government to approve the next steps with a one million dollar grant. Bicyclists in the area say they are excited to see connectivity for thousands of residents in the area to enjoy.

“This particular bridge is not only an important gap to address on its own, but it’s propelling all of these other connections to get into place,” says Katie Zimmerman, the Executive Director of Charleston Moves.

City of Charleston officials are moving forward with submitting plans to start designing and building the Ashley River Crossing project. Mayor John Tecklenburg says construction is expected to start early next year to create a greenway and paths linking the Upper Peninsula and West Ashley.

“We are really making incredible progress that’s why we are all excited. an important piece of this with the cost of living is making sure you have all the funding in place,” says Mayor Tecklenburg.

Zimmerman hasn’t owned a car in 16 years and her main mode of transportation is her bike. She crosses the bridge almost every day and says this project is needed to improve safety as sidewalks are very narrow.

“I do not drive I don’t own a car. Bicycling is the most efficient way for me to get across it. I don’t think motorists realize how close they actually are to those of us who are on that side path,” says Zimmerman.

The project is expected to provide pedestrian and bicycle paths that are 21 feet wide. Mayor Tecklenburg says will improve mobility for thousands of people, especially in the highly populated medical district.

“It is a mobility piece for our city and it’s going to take cars off the road. It will also provide a remarkable recreation and quality of life addition,” says Mayor Tecklenburg.

The projects are expected to cost around $41 million in total and city leaders expect the project to be completed by 2026.
