The Absolute E-Z Up Difference

Our company was founded on three basic values:

 Low Level Access Lifts Johns Island, SC

Safety - The Top Time Booster

When workers are injured, they're either placed on light duty or leave until they heal up and get back to work. This leaves you with the conundrum do you hire a new worker (which requires an initial expense) or reassign members of your staff to make up the difference? Obviously, neither situation is optimal. The biggest factor preventing these kinds of frustrating situations is workplace safety, which is why it's our top priority at AEUP. It doesn't matter if you buy a manual platform lift in Johns Island, SC, or an electric stock picker. You can rest easy when you purchase equipment from us, knowing that AEUP aerial work platforms and material handling equipment come with the most innovative safety technologies.

A few of those safety mechanisms include:

  • Anti-tilt systems, helping to prevent toppling and turnovers.
  • Built-in pothole protection for driving equipment.
  • Double-foot sensors, which halts the machine from operating unless two feet are planted on the sensors.

Note: Depending on your needs, your machinery may or may not include some of these safety technologies. Please refer to specific product pages for more details.

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - If you love Mexican cuisine, you have a new dining option in the Lowcountry.

Minero Mexican Grill & Cantina opened for dinner on Thursday at the space formerly occupied by The Fat Hen, at 3140 Maybank Highway.

The Neighborhood Dining Group says the opening marked 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 hours include dinner service on 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.

Expansive Johns Island farm could be protected from development with greenbelt money

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 historical landmark to host 'Gullah Geechee Experience'

CHARLESTON, SC (WCIV) — Charleston is full of well-known history, but one hidden gem has gone mostly unnoticed. Along a narrow stretch of highway on Johns Island stands a piece of Gullah Geechee history.

Moving Star Hall is one of a very few praise houses still standing in the United States, and it's been the center of the community for well over a century.

"The presence of prayer and praise is still profound here, and I believe the grounds have been consecrated with the spirits of the ancestors," said Pastor Kay Colleton. "So when I'm here, I'm moved. I'm moved in the spirit to do things that enhance and enrich the culture that is already left for us."

International African-American Museum Director of Faith Communities Reverend Demett Jenkins agrees.

Her grandfather was instrumental in founding Moving Star Hall. His story and those of others who have walked through the door of the hall will live on in a planned exhibit at the IAAM.

"Part of my role is to make sure that we are in partnership with faith communities around the world. And for me, as a Charlestonian, it is important that our local people have as much relationship and connection to the museum as anybody else," she said.

The museum exhibit will feature a replica of the praise house and include pictures and voice recordings from natives on their memories of Moving Star Hall.

Today, services are still held Sunday mornings with some people attending there first, before heading to their own churches. They say the sacred place provides a divine spiritual connection among those who worship at Moving Star Hall.

"It almost makes me a little teary as I think about it because it is what we're supposed to be. We're supposed to be orchestrated under that divine nature that keeps us together and that's what it does," said attorney F. Renee Gaters.

Moving Star Hall will host "Gospel Fest 2022-The Gullah Geechee Experience", Saturday June 25, at 3104 River Road on Johns Island.

The event starts at 10 a.m. and will feature Gullah storytelling and African drum performers. A gospel concert with vendors and food starts at 1 p.m. nearby at Fields Flea Market. The event is free.

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.

James Island Board of Zoning and Appeals to discuss KFC drive-thru

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The James Island Board of Zoning and Appeals will meet Tuesday night to discuss bringing a fast-food chain to the area.

On the agenda, members are expected to review a request from KFC for a special exception, which will allow them to build a drive-thru in a vacant lot near the intersections of Camp and Folly Roads at 890 Folly Road.

This vacant lot sits next to the Chase Bank, Hyams Garden Center and Accent Store near the intersection of Camp and Folly Roads.

A recent initiative, “Rethink Folly Road,” aims to make the area less congested and commercial and to have more green space. It appears some locals are concerned about the level of traffic and congestion in the area already and are worried a drive-thru near this intersection could make the problem worse.

One resident, who works at the store next to the vacant lot, said he is less concerned by the traffic and more concerned by the type of business that fills the vacancy. He said he would prefer a locally owned business, rather than a chain restaurant.

“I feel that there should be a local business right there, rather than a fast-food chain, I work right there next to a locally owned business and it’s just kind of seems more appropriate for James Island,” Benjamin Pippins said.

According to the meeting agenda, this lot was once home to a Pizza Hut, Subway, Papa John’s and more. Those locations have since been demolished.

The Mayor of James Island, Mayor Woolsey, said he trusts the Board of Zoning Appeals to determine whether the drive-thru will impact traffic.

“There are over 100 businesses in the Town’s Commercial Core and less than five percent are fast-food restaurants. Consistent with the Rethink Folly Road plan, I strongly support the redevelopment of our older strip malls that do not meet current standards,” Mayor Woolsey said in an email.

KFC said in a statement that the James Island Community historically features a variety of food options, including a KFC that operated until 2011.

“We are excited around plans to open a KFC location in the James Island community. Our commitment is to positively impact every community in which we operate by creating job opportunities and participating in community programs and events. The restaurant we are proposing would be uniquely designed for James Island. We are continuing to work with the local community during the review process,” a KFC Spokesperson said in their statement.

The meeting is Tuesday at 7 p.m. and will be available virtually. For more information about the meeting, click here.
