Foundation Damage

The primary role of your gutter system is to channel water off of your roof and direct it away from your home’s foundation. Gutter blockages can result in water running over the sides of your gutters. That water will eventually settle around your foundation. With time, pooling water will affect the reliability of your home’s structure, causing cracks, mold growth, and even collapse.

Wood-Damage.jpg

Wood Damage

Your home’s gutter system is held up by fascia boards, which are typically made of wood. When your clogged gutters overflow with water, your fascia boards will begin to rot. On top of that, your fascia boards must hold the increased weight of your clogged gutters. The combination of rot and weight can cause your gutter system to fail, resulting in expensive repairs.

Landscaping-Damage

Landscaping Damage

If you want to maintain the beauty of your landscaping, having clog-free gutters is essential. When your gutters can’t do their job, overflowing water will pour down the sides of your home. Eventually, this water will damage the trees, shrubs, and flower beds close to the base of your home.

Gutter Damage

When your gutters are full of leaves and other debris, rainwater, and other forms of precipitation have nowhere to go. This causes water to fill your gutters to the brim. Because each gallon of water weighs around eight pounds, this extra weight will cause your gutters to crack, bend, or even tear away from your roof. Your gutters are rendered completely useless at that point, and you’re looking at very expensive repairs.

If you don’t have the time and patience to commit to proper gutter cleaning, The Gutter Gorilla team is here to help. We have been cleaning gutters in Shelby for years. With a fully trained team of gutter professionals on staff, we have the experience and resources to clean your gutters effectively and efficiently.

Common Signs of Clogged Gutters

One of the most common questions we get at The Gutter Gorilla centers around when homeowners need gutter cleaning in Shelby, SC. The answer is nuanced, but generally speaking, your gutters need to be cleaned twice a year or whenever they become clogged. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly easy for the average homeowner to climb up on a ladder, get on their roof, and look to see if their gutters are full of debris.

Luckily, there are some common signs that you can look out for to save yourself from costly repairs:

Sagging-Gutters-1

Sagging Gutters

When debris like pine needles and leaves begin to build up in your gutters, the increased weight can cause your gutters to bend and sag. When this happens, your gutters can’t do their job of directing water away from your home. If your gutters appear to be sagging, chances are they are clogged.

Birds-and-Pests-2.png

Birds and Pests

Animals like birds find gutters a very appealing place to make a nest. If you notice birds or other critters scurrying around in your gutters, it can be a tell-tale sign that your gutters are clogged with nest-making materials.

Stains-on-Your-Siding-1

Stains on Your Siding

If you see stains on your siding, there is a good chance that your gutters are clogged, and standing water is overflowing onto your siding. This overflow of water can damage the fascia boards behind your gutters and can also affect your roof’s shingles.

Plant-Life-1

Plant Life

It might sound far-fetched, but if your gutters have enough dirt and debris buildup, seeds within that dirt can sprout, causing a garden to grow in your gutters. If you notice signs of plant growth in your gutters, they are most likely clogged and need to be cleaned ASAP.

In today’s fast-paced world, we understand that your time is precious. If you believe your gutters are clogged but don’t have the time to check, we would be happy to travel to your home for an initial gutter inspection.

During your inspection, our team will check your gutters for clogs and debris. While we are inspecting your gutters for clogs, we will also keep an eye out for signs of wear and tear and other issues that might cause damage to your home. When we’re done, we will go over what we found and provide you with a cost-effective solution for any problems that arise. That way, you can spend more time focusing on your family and your life and less time worrying about fixing your gutters by yourself.

UNC football’s recruiting class of 2022 is now six players and four defenders strong.

The Tar Heels on Friday earned a verbal commitment from three-star 2022 recruit Randy “Deuce” Caldwell II, a hybrid safety/linebacker from Mauldin High School in South Carolina near Greenville.

Caldwell is the third consecutive defensive player to commit to the Tar Heels, joining four-star Shelby edge Malaki Hamrick in April and four-star Leesville Road edge Beau Atkinson earlier this month.

Caldwell ranks as the No. 16 player in South Carolina and No. 112 linebacker in his class. Here are three more things to know about the Tar Heels’ latest pledge.

Positional versatility

Caldwell classified as a linebacker. But, as he told the Greenville News, he models his game more after Isaiah Simmons, the former Clemson star who became a poster child for positionless defenders.

During two varsity seasons with Mauldin, Caldwell has taken snaps at safety and linebacker while playing in select offensive packages as a running back and wide receiver. In his abbreviated fall junior season, Caldwell recorded 38 tackles, four tackles for loss, two pass break-ups and a sack in six games.

That versatility has also helped Caldwell stand out in spring and summer 7-on-7 tournaments and prospect camps, where defenders often find themselves in press man coverage with no pass rush.

Caldwell – also an accomplished basketball player – helped Cam Newton’s 7-on-7 18-and-under team log big performances in Georgia and South Carolina showcase tournaments. He also won linebacker MVP honors for his performance in Under Armour’s All-American Camp in Charlotte last month.

His flexibility will be a welcome addition at UNC, where defensive coordinator Jay Bateman played starting defensive backs such as Trey Morrison and Ja’Qurious Conley at multiple positions last fall.

Game-changing visit

UNC inside linebackers coach Tommy Thigpen was Caldwell’s primary recruiter, and he offered the rising senior a scholarship on April 15 amid a flurry of other offers: Arkansas, Baylor, Minnesota, West Virginia.

This month, the Tar Heels got their first chance for an in-person recruiting pitch – and that helped them beat out Gus Malzahn’s Central Florida program, the other school most prominently linked to Caldwell.

Caldwell and his family officially visited UNC last week, from June 15 through 16. Highlights included a golf cart cameo at last Wednesday’s 7-on-7 team camp and a locker room photoshoot (which Sam Howell, UNC’s rising junior quarterback and Heisman hopeful, briefly joined in on).

Read more:UNC football finishes a busy first week of in-person recruiting. Here\'s how it helped

From there, it was easy to read between the lines.

Caldwell tweeted on Tuesday he had a “change of plans” and tagged Hayes Fawcett, a popular creator who makes commitment edits for high school recruits, with a simple message: “It’s time, brodie.”

On Wednesday, he tweeted a poster for the 1995 Ice Cube/Chris Tucker film “Friday” and attached a shushing emoji. And finally, on Friday, the three-star recruit announced his commitment to UNC.

A prominent teammate

If Caldwell is searching for recruits to sway toward UNC, he doesn’t have to look far: one of his senior teammates at Mauldin, Jeadyn Lukus, is a four-star 2022 cornerback and top target for the Tar Heels.

Lukus ranks as the No. 1 player in South Carolina’s class of 2022 and the No. 6 cornerback and No. 37 overall recruit in the nation. He’s a rangy defender and part-time receiver at 6-2 and 185 pounds, and he was a steady tackler and playmaker for Mauldin last fall with 36 stops and a highlight-reel interception.

UNC officially hosted Lukus from June 4 through 6 – the first weekend visit slot after the NCAA Division I recruiting dead period expired – and remains a contender to land the high four-star recruit.

Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and Oklahoma are among the elite programs to offer Lukus, with the in-state Tigers catching the most substantial buzz. Lukus is a longtime Clemson target – Mauldin is less than an hour away from its campus – and attended the school’s Elite Retreat earlier this month.

With cornerbacks coach Dré Bly leading Lukus’ recruitment, though, UNC has kept itself in the running for Caldwell’s standout teammate. After the cornerback’s official visit to Chapel Hill, 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong kept Clemson as his Crystal Ball pick for Lukus but moved his confidence level down to a 1.

“I’m not saying he won’t go to Clemson: I just think that North Carolina has made it an extremely hard decision for Jeadyn Lukus,” the website’s director of foobtall recruiting told InsideCarolina on June 9.

Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps returns to Gardner-Webb

After cancelling camp and its touring season last summer, Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps returned to Gardner-Webb University on June 5 for an intense month of learning. The group, which includes 184 members, 40 teaching staff, and 10 administrators plus athletic training staff, will be on campus until July 10.

Carolina Crown, one of the premiere marching ensembles in the world, has multiple awards in brass, color guard, visual, and percussion. Having been a championship finalist for the past 17 consecutive years, Crown was "crowned" the title of World Champion most recently in 2013. Based in Fort Mill, S.C., the Corps has partnered with Gardner-Webb since 2007 for practice and rehearsal space prior to its national tours.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the musicians held monthly camps in Fort Mill through February 2020, said Nancy Coates, director of Drum Corps Operations.

“We cancelled our season officially in April,” she said. “From that point until present, our members have continued working on show music and choreography virtually. We held audition in the fall virtually as well.”

Coates said administrators have made several adjustments to ensure a safe environment, instituting strict protocols related to COVID testing, cleaning and disinfecting equipment, providing hand sanitizing stations, visitors in the dorm buildings, and meals.

“While some DCI corps are choosing to do a shortened tour, at Crown we made the decision to guarantee our members a challenging and comprehensive learning experience sitting in one place at Gardner-Webb,” she said. “Our members are required to enter all of their health information into a database that we use, which includes vaccines and a physical. We will be using the dining hall exclusively for the first four weeks we are on campus, and using our kitchen truck for the last week.”

At the end of the camp, instead of leaving on a tour, the members will celebrate with a banquet.

“The last week we will be doing a lot of in-uniform filming and live streaming of the production and some other special section specific pieces,” Coates shared. “Our filmed production will be shown on the big screen at DCIs event in August, but we will not be attending in person. We plan to have our banquet for the members on July 4th before our week of filming, and we will depart Gardner-Webb on July 11th.”

This year’s show, Project21, is unique and different — a homecoming for thousands of people who have been involved in the organization through the years. A cinematic experience, affectionately titled “In My Mind…”, it will focus on the theme “No matter where your road leads in life, you will always have a home at Carolina Crown.”

The production will explore music from different genres, including “Carolina in My Mind” by James Taylor, “Long Time Traveler” by The Wailin’ Jennys, “Seize the Day” by Peter Graham, “Gravity” by Sarah Bareilles, and “Toccata Andromeda” by Paul Halley.

Coates said everyone in the organization is ready to be all together again on the GWU campus.

“We are beyond ecstatic to be back in person,” she said. “Our members, staff and volunteers are anxious to perform as an ensemble again. It will be therapeutic for all of us who have missed each other, and so miss listening to and watching these talented performers.”

Tommy Tuberville joins Raphael Warnock and other leaders in bipartisan support for peanut farmers

Senators Tommy Tuberville and Raphael Warnock led 17 colleagues in a bipartisan push to reduce restrictive trade barriers and expand export market access for domestic peanut farmers and processors. The letter was sent to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack and U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Ambassador Katherine Tai.

According to Tuberville’s press release, removing trade barriers for peanut farmers and processors would give a financial boost to the domestic peanut sector, increase international market access, and create job opportunities across the country.

The letter states, “As U.S. Senators who proudly represent peanut farmers in our states, we strongly support joint efforts by USDA and USTR to engage with your E.U. counterparts with the goal of reducing existing non-tariff trade barriers on peanut exports. Increased market access will ultimately benefit the peanut farmers in our states, and we stand ready to support your efforts on their behalf.”

Sen. Warnock stated on Twitter, “With GA leading the nation in peanut production, I was proud to lead a bipartisan group of Senators in pushing @USTradeRep & @USDA to expand export market access for our hardworking domestic farmers & processors. When we champion our farmers, we champion GA & our nation.”

With GA leading the nation in peanut production , I was proud to lead a bipartisan group of Senators in pushing @USTradeRep & @USDA to expand export market access for our hardworking domestic farmers & processors. When we champion our farmers, we champion GA & our nation.

— Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (@SenatorWarnock) June 23, 2021

The senators who signed the letter include Senators John Boozman (R-AR), Richard Burr (R-NC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Tom Cotton (R-AR), John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Tim Kaine (D-VA), Jon Ossoff (D-GA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rick Scott (R-FL), Tim Scott (R-SC), Richard Shelby (R-AL), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Mark Warner (D-VA), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).

A copy of the letter can be found here and below:

Dear Secretary Vilsack and Ambassador Tai,

We write to bring your attention to ongoing nontariff trade barriers from the European Union (E.U.) affecting the domestic peanut sector. We encourage the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) to prioritize interagency collaboration and industry engagement in order to negotiate an effective solution with your E.U. counterparts that will ultimately allow increased market access for U.S. peanuts.

According to data published by USDA, domestic peanut farmers produced over 1.6 million acres of peanuts in 2020 with a farm gate value over $1.2 billion. Due to their susceptibility to naturally-occurring aflatoxin, domestic peanut growers are subject to USDA testing to ensure all peanuts harvested for human consumption are safe to enter the food supply. U.S. growers have a long history of partnering with USDA to ensure their harvest is safe, with USDA also working on research initiatives to address the underlying causes of aflatoxin contamination and to improve post-harvest handling. Collectively, these efforts demonstrate that U.S. farmers and government officials are actively working to ensure that peanuts produced domestically are safe.

In 2020, an estimated 668,000 metric tons of U.S. produced peanuts were exported to international markets. Unfortunately, stringent E.U. testing requirements for aflatoxin are preventing increased U.S. exports into this high-value market. In recent years, the U.S. industry estimates they have lost approximately $170 million in sales into the E.U. due to difficulties presented by these burdensome testing requirements. A review of data from the first quarter 2021 indicates an additional $130 million in anticipated lost sales. Without efforts to negotiate a workable solution that will increase opportunities for domestic peanut operations, our farmers and businesses will continue to struggle with prohibitive requirements set by international partners.

As U.S. Senators who proudly represent peanut farmers in our states, we strongly support joint efforts by USDA and USTR to engage with your E.U. counterparts with the goal of reducing existing non-tariff trade barriers on peanut exports. Increased market access will ultimately benefit the peanut farmers in our states, and we stand ready to support your efforts on their behalf. Thank you for consideration of this request.

MASSENA, N.Y. (June 28, 2021) – John Cox of DeBary, Florida, caught 23 scorable bass Monday weighing 75 pounds, 15 ounces to win the two-day Qualifying Group B round at the Major League Fishing (MLF) Bass Pro Tour Stage Five tournament at the St. Lawrence River in Massena, New York. Cox’s two-day total of 54 bass weighing 175 pounds even earned him the victory by a 23-pound, 11-ounce margin and advances him directly into Wednesday\'s final-day Championship Round of competition.

James Elam of Tulsa, Oklahoma caught a two-day total of 51 bass weighing 151-5 to end the round in second place, and Shelby, North Carolina pro Bryan Thrift finished the round in third place with a two-day total of 51 bass weighing 149-11.

The remaining 38 anglers – 19 from Group A and 19 from Group B – will now compete Tuesday in the Knockout Round, where weights are zeroed, and the anglers compete to finish in the top eight to advance to Championship Wednesday. Wednesday’s Championship Round will feature Group A winner Jacob Wheeler, Group B winner John Cox, and the top eight anglers from the Knockout Round competing in a final-day shootout for the top prize of $100,000.

“Oh my gosh, I feel like I won the tournament, just making it to the Championship Round,” said an excited Cox. “I’ve never won one of these rounds before, so this is a new experience for me. I’m really excited to be able to allow the fish to rest a little before the next round.

“Ten of us are going to compete for $100,000 on Wednesday – I don’t even know what to say. Not sure if I’m having a mild heart attack or if the red bull is just really kicking in,” continued Cox. “I caught a ton of fish today and found some exciting stuff in the third period that should help us out in the next round. On the last cast, there were probably 15 fish that came in when I shook that 4 pounder off. I can’t wait to get back out there – it’s going to be awesome.

“I’ve been using the new 7-foot, medium action Abu Garcia Fantasista Premier spinning rod – it bends perfectly and handles the fish on the light line. I’m throwing 8-pound, Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon, on the Abu Garcia REVO MGXtreme Spinning Reel. It has a super-smooth drag and allows me to fight the fish really well.”

Cox said his key baits came down to the Berkley Powerbait Maxscent The General Worm and the Berkley Powerbait Maxscent Hit Worm.

“I never even had these smaller Berkley General worms until a couple years ago because I figured the 5 inch was plenty small enough,” continued Cox. “They didn’t want the 5-inch today, but they ate this 4-inch one up really well.

“The Maxscent Hit Worm was an accidental win today. I had no idea it would work that well – I’d never heard of anyone catching smallmouth with it. I put it on to save some Flat Worms and they’ve just been killing it today.”

With a full day off, Cox said he plans to take his kids tubing down below the locks and is looking forward to enjoying the family time prior to Wednesday’s competition.

“This event has been awesome. I can’t wait to get back out there for the Championship Round,” said Cox. “This place is full of fish – it’s just been unreal.”

The top 20 pros in Qualifying Group B that now advance to Tuesday’s Knockout Round on the St. Lawrence River are:

1st: John Cox, DeBary, Fla., 54 bass, 175-0 2nd: James Elam, Tulsa, Okla., 51 bass, 151-5 3rd: Bryan Thrift, Shelby, N.C., 51 bass, 149-11 4th: Terry Scroggins, San Mateo, Fla., 49 bass, 149-2 5th: Bobby Lane, Lakeland, Fla., 44 bass, 132-10 6th: Jared Lintner, Arroyo Grande, Calif., 41 bass, 127-1 7th: Dustin Connell, Clanton, Ala., 33 bass, 126-6 8th: Gerald Spohrer, Gonzales, La., 35 bass, 125-9 9th: Ott DeFoe, Blaine, Tenn., 42 bass, 125-6 10th: Britt Myers, Lake Wylie, S.C., 44 bass, 123-14 11th: Brett Hite, Phoenix, Ariz., 37 bass, 122-14 12th: Luke Clausen, Spokane, Wash., 41 bass, 116-15 13th: Fletcher Shryock, Guntersville, Ala., 37 bass, 114-15 14th: John Murray, Spring City, Tenn., 38 bass, 110-11 15th: Shin Fukae, Osaka, Japan, 29 bass, 104-12 16th: David Walker, Sevierville, Tenn., 36 bass, 102-12 17th: Matt Lee, Cullman, Ala., 32 bass, 100-0 18th: Edwin Evers, Talala, Okla., 31 bass, 96-9 19th: Michael Neal, Dayton, Tenn., 34 bass, 96-6 20th: Andy Montgomery, Blacksburg, S.C., 34 bass, 94-14

Overall, there were 594 bass weighing 1,808 pounds, 8 ounces caught by the 39 pros on Monday.

Randall Tharp of Port St. Joe, Florida won Monday’s $1,000 Berkley Big Bass Award, weighing in a 6-pound, 6-ounce smallmouth bass on a ned rig during Period 3. Berkley will award $1,000 to the angler who weighs the biggest bass each day, and a $3,000 bonus to the angler who weighs the largest bass of the tournament.

The Stage Five at the St. Lawrence River features anglers competing with a 2-pound minimum weight requirement, meaning each bass caught must weigh at least 2 pounds for it to be deemed scorable. Minimum weights are determined individually for each competition waters that the Bass Pro Tour visits, based on the productivity, bass population and anticipated average size of fish in each fishery.

The 40 Anglers in Group A competed in their two-day qualifying round on Friday and Sunday – the 40 anglers in Group B on Saturday and Monday. With both groups two-day qualifying round now complete, the anglers that finish in 2nd through 20th place from both groups now advance to Tuesday’s Knockout Round, while the winner of each group advances directly to Wednesday’s Championship Round. In the Knockout Round, weights are zeroed and the remaining 38 anglers compete to finish in the top 8 to advance to the Championship Round. In the final day Championship Round, weights are zeroed and the highest one-day total wins.

Anglers will take off from the Massena Intake Boat Launch Ramp, located on Route 13, in Massena, at 8:30 a.m. ET each day of competition. Each day’s Takeout will also be held at the Launch Ramp, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Fans are welcome to attend all takeoff and takeout ceremonies and also encouraged to follow the event online throughout the day on the MLF NOW!® live stream and SCORETRACKER® coverage at MajorLeagueFishing.com.

The Bass Pro Tour features a field of 76 top professional anglers – joined at each event by 4 pros that qualify from the Pro Circuit – competing across seven regular-season tournaments around the country, competing for millions of dollars and valuable points to qualify for the annual Heavy Hitters all-star event and the 2022 championship.
