The Absolute E-Z Up Difference

Our company was founded on three basic values:

 Low Level Access Lifts Summerville, 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 Summerville, 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.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — Lofty goals are already set for the new superintendent of Dorchester District Two schools.

Dr. Shane Robbins is at the helm now since Joe Pye retired after a 22-year career.

Katy Solt sat down with him today to discuss everything from student achievement and safety to teacher retention, and the impact he hopes to make on his new community.

Even before you walk into the DD2 building, the word “tradition” is at the top of the sign.

“It's something that tells me there’s stability, and it gives me a solid foundation to try to build on things that I might be able to bring to the table,” says Dr. Robbins.

As the district's new superintendent, Dr. Robbins knows he has big shoes to fill, but he’s also looking to fit in.

“I’m not trying to make the district conform to me, but I’m going to come in and try to conform to the district and bring what my background and experience is and have shown me that may be effective in our new district.”

He knows the new job comes with some daunting tasks, starting with getting teachers to stay in the classrooms.

“We’re the lowest-paying district in the Tri-County area,” he says. "However, I think there is value in us assessing our budget. Looking at ways to recruit and retain teachers in the community. The salary schedule, signing bonuses, there’s other things that I’ve used in my previous districts to try to compete with the Columbia metropolitan area.”

He also says the district is still rebounding from the learning loss due to the pandemic, and the team needs to make some changes to help students stay on track.

“We preached grace over grades just trying to keep kids engaged when they were one day sent into quarantine,” says Dr. Robbins. “The problem that we’re facing is we have not been able to recover from that, and because of that, student achievement levels are dipping.”

The other priority: keeping students safe once they get to school.

“The finest resource that a parent or family has is their child. We’ll really start to refine what we think would be best approaches. But we have a good standard response plan in place in this district,” he says. “The biggest thing is going to be training and ensuring we’re following our protocols.”

As the first day on the job and the first day of school approach, Robbins says the nerves are there, but he’s ready for the challenge and the chance to change lives.

Summerville family seeks to offer support, raise awareness about hydrocephalus

SUMMERVILLE — Just behind Laci Robinson’s left ear and below the hairline is a thin, smooth patch of skin — a scar that is the only outward sign there is anything different about the 35-year-old Summerville woman.“It’s one of those hidden disabilities,” said her mother, the Rev. Lisa Robinson, of the congenital hydrocephalus that has affected her daughter since birth.The condition results from the body producing too much cerebrospinal fluid, which collects in cavities in the brain called vent...

SUMMERVILLE — Just behind Laci Robinson’s left ear and below the hairline is a thin, smooth patch of skin — a scar that is the only outward sign there is anything different about the 35-year-old Summerville woman.

“It’s one of those hidden disabilities,” said her mother, the Rev. Lisa Robinson, of the congenital hydrocephalus that has affected her daughter since birth.

The condition results from the body producing too much cerebrospinal fluid, which collects in cavities in the brain called ventricles and can create pressure on the brain. It affects an estimated 1 million adults and children in the U.S., according to the Hydrocephalus Association, and most often appears at birth, as it did with Laci, occurring in one out of every 770 babies. It also can develop later in adults. It can impact memory and learning, behavior, vision and cause headaches and pain.

It is increasingly thought to be a problem in older adults, where it can cause issues with walking, bladder control or even dementia, according to the association. Laci’s grandfather was suspected of having developed it late in life before he was eventually diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Lisa said.

In Laci’s case, it was obvious from the moment she was born that something was different. After giving birth by Cesarean section “there was a lot of commotion and talking and they ran down the hall with her,” Lisa said. “I didn’t see her until 12 hours later in the incubator, with all of these tubes coming out of her.”

Doctors explained that Laci had hydrocephalus, which is why her head was enlarged.

“I had never heard of it,” Lisa said.

Her newborn would need surgery a few days later to install a shunt, an internal tube that can divert fluid from her brain down to her abdomen where it can be absorbed. It is the most common procedure. However, it can also come with a lot of complications.

“There’s infections, there’s malfunctions,” Lisa said. “There are so many things that can happen with that shunt.”

Some patients have had hundreds of procedures related to their shunts to fix those common problems, although Laci has only been through it once after her initial surgery.

“She’s just been blessed,” Lisa said.

Laci’s second surgery came out of the blue when she was 14. At a dinner in Atlanta at her uncle’s house there was another child with hydrocephalus and the mother casually mentioned they were about to visit a neurosurgeon, who just happened to have done Laci’s procedure years before in Cleveland. After reconnecting with that doctor, he suggested having Laci rechecked once the family settled in Charleston. While the checkup seemed to go well and Laci had no symptoms, the family had barely returned home when the doctor’s office called and asked them to return immediately after getting some test results back.

“It’s an emergency. Her tube had come apart,” Lisa said.

As an associate pastor at Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in North Charleston, she believes it wasn’t just happenstance Laci got checked out then.

“God intervened in that situation,” Lisa said.

For her part, growing up with her condition, Laci chose not to advertise it.

“I didn’t know how to talk about it at school,” she said. “Even at college.”

But Laci knows it had an effect, both academically and socially, primarily because of her memory and her ability to follow steps in a task.

“I struggled with communication, verbal communication, struggling with expressing my feelings,” she said.

Laci knows what she would like to say but can’t find the words. It was only recently that a neurologist gave her condition a name — aphasia. Despite that, Laci graduated from college with a degree in graphic design.

“That’s what i want to do” as a career. For now, she works as a cashier at Lowe’s. Still, she helps out with graphics and flyers at the church and recently designed one for the Juneteenth celebration in Mount Pleasant.

“She does a lot of fliers for the church and gets a lot of compliments,” Lisa said.

Laci’s self-confidence might be one of her biggest hurdles.

“I put up my own barriers,” she said. “I stop myself out of fear of messing up or things like that.”

It’s one reason she and her mother want to help form a support group or network for other families in the Lowcountry to access and learn about services and help available.

Families when they do connect often have a lot of questions, Lisa said.

“People want to know, ‘Where are the neurosurgeons? Where can i go with my child?’” Lisa said.

They also have questions about the Individualized Education Program plans, which are detailed instructions required for children in special education. There can be frustrating meetings for parents putting one together with school administrators and teachers, Lisa said, a process she went through with Laci many times. It is why one of the services she thinks parents could use is another seasoned parent who could go with them to those meetings.

“Not to talk for them but to let them know, ‘I’m right here with you. I’ve been through this,’” Lisa said.

When they became co-community network leaders, the Robinsons had a lot of plans — including a walk in the Lowcountry to raise awareness.

“And then the pandemic hit,” Lisa said.

Now may be the time to revisit those plans and to start building that awareness, she said.

Starting with this: “It’s very common and anyone can get hydrocephalus,” Lisa said. It just may not be obvious to everyone else.

This is part of The Post and Courier’s Daily Digest series, in which one of our food reporters asks a local to describe a day of eating in detail.

Travis Grimes lives in Summerville. He is the owner of Iron Clay Catering.

My morning started out with me getting up at 6:30 a.m.

I almost always have a coffee of some sort. I prefer cold brew but today was a French press. I snacked on some beef jerky while I enjoyed my coffee and began to plan out my day.

I headed downtown with my wife Meg for an event consultation, and we squeezed in a little shopping on King Street. Since we were already downtown, we decided to stop at Big Bad Breakfast for a quick brunch bite. I had a delicious skillet with potato, egg, cheddar and all the smoked meats. I added in fried potato hash smothered with red eye gravy and washed it all down with a mimosa and a Vietnamese iced coffee.

Once we got home, I snuck in a quick nap and then helped my daughter pick blueberries from our bush in the backyard. We turned them into a cobbler with South Carolina peaches and topped it with an oat streusel.

While the cobbler was baking, I snacked on some boiled peanuts that I had left over from the Sea Island Farmers Market. I made myself an adult beverage and decided I had absolutely no plans of cooking dinner.

I told Meg and the kids to get ready because we were going out to eat. We decided on Myles and Jun Yakitori, which is right by our house and easily one of the tastiest bites you can get in Summerville. This place is so delicious that I always order a ridiculous amount of food. I’d tell you what we ordered, but it’s easier to just say we ate the majority of the menu.

The A5 wagyu, beef heart skewers and chicken skin are real standouts. A nice bottle of quality, chilled sake and you’ll get zero complaints from me.

When we got home, I managed to force myself to have some cobbler with vanilla ice cream. I’d say I was so full that I wouldn’t need to eat again for days, but that’d be a lie.

I’ll probably eat like a savage again tomorrow.
