Electricity - it's one of the most important innovations in the history of humankind. It's hard to imagine life without electricity, and for good reason. Nearly every aspect of our lives is affected by electricity in some form or fashion, from the way you wash your clothes to the effort you put in at work.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

If you don't have any power in your home, it might be time to check your electrical panel to see if there are any tripped breakers. If you spot a tripped breaker, try your best to switch it over to its original position. If you can't, remember that some breakers need to be flipped to the "off" position before turning it back on. If you don't have any luck, give our office a call. We'll send a trained residential electrician in Alabaster to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

If you have an overhead fan in your living room or bedroom, you know how quickly it can accumulate dust. Most homeowners clean up using a rod duster. However, sometimes homeowners accidentally hit the fan direction switch when doing so. But, instead of flipping it "on" or "off," they bump it into a limbo zone where neither direction is selected. When this happens, your overhead fan will not spin. If one of your fans stops working suddenly, this is one of the most common reasons why. If you're sure you didn't hit the fan direction switch, it could be an indication of a larger problem. In this case, call our office for a free phone consultation. We'll troubleshoot with you over the phone and if necessary, send out an electrician.

Kitchen Breaker Keeps Tripping

If your home was built in the last 35 years, chances are it has two 20-amp circuits running to your kitchen countertop outlets. Newer homes will have three circuits. If you're constantly tripping the breaker to your kitchen, it's most likely because you have too many electrical devices connected to the same circuit. To help alleviate this problem, place appliances like coffee makers and toasters on two different circuits. That way, they can share the load.

At the end of the day, your home is your place of solitude and relaxation. But, when you have electrical issues in your home, things can quickly go from peaceful to problematic. Whether you're renovating your home and need a new room wired for power or your panel breaker keeps giving your problems, L&M Electric is here to assist. If you have questions about an issue or need to schedule service, our team is ready to help answer your questions and coordinate the best time for a residential electrician to come to your home in Alabaster.

If we can offer sound advice that will educate our clients and help them save money, we have no problem doing so. That's why we have put together some helpful tips and tricks for maintaining your home's most common electrical systems. Because, at the end of the day, a little knowledge can go a long way when it comes to your family's safety.

 Smart Home Installation Alabaster, AL

Install Surge Protectors

Intense lighting storms can cause powerful surges of electricity that ruin your home's electrical appliances and amenities. Surge protectors installed at your electrical panel can help prevent these surges by grounding the electricity running through your home. They do so by directing it away from your electrical devices. This common solution is inexpensive, effective, and always a better choice than replacing expensive items like TVs and computers.

 Electrical Repairs Alabaster, AL

Examine Your Breaker Panel

Breaker panels control the power to your home. When they go bad or are damaged, there's a good chance that you will lose power to most of the rooms in your house. Open your breaker panel and keep a sharp eye out for signs of corrosion and rust. Double-check that each breaker you see flips on and off properly. If you notice corrosion or if the breaker switches won't flip, it's time to get in touch with a residential electrician in Alabaster, AL, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Alabaster, AL

Test Your GFIs

GFIs, or Ground Fault Interrupters, are similar to surge protectors in that they prevent electrical damage from happening in your home. The primary job of a GFI is to prevent electrical shocks that happen during a ground fault. Because water is a conductor of electricity, GFIs should be installed anywhere that an outlet comes into contact with water. You should try to test your GFIs every month, if possible, to ensure that they are working correctly. When you look closely at your GFI, you will notice a "test" and a "reset" button. Hit the "test" button to trip the GFI outlet and then hit "reset" to restore power. If your outlet resets, your GFI is working as it should. If not, you need to replace your GFI outlet. Because electricity is involved, we recommend hiring a professional to install new GFIs in your home. That way, you know the job is done right.

Replace Outdated Light Bulbs

The right light bulb can add the perfect amount of ambiance to your home. Eventually, however, even the best light bulbs will need replacing. While they don't need checking every month, it's a good idea to inspect all your bulbs at the beginning of the year. If any of your bulbs are dead, you should replace them. You should also consider replacing bulbs that are incandescent with LED lights. LED light bulbs may cost more upfront but use less electricity and are more efficient over the long run.

Electrical Services Alabaster, AL

Schedule a Home Safety Inspection

In terms of preventative maintenance, scheduling a safety inspection for your home's electrical systems should be a high priority. These inspections will shine a light on the electrical features in your home that need to be fixed. Most modern electrical fires are caused by short circuit arcs, defective insulation, or broken wiring. An inspection conducted by a qualified electrician will help determine what needs to be fixed so you and your family stay safe in your home. Your inspector should cover your whole home and will examine common features such as:

  • Breakers
  • Fans
  • Exposed Wiring
  • Electrical Panels
  • Circuits
  • Switches
  • Outlets and More

Unpacking Friday’s BOE meeting: What’s happening now, what will happen

By Scott Buttram, publisher

Commentary

TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Schools Board meeting on Friday was been documented by the media, streamed to the community and witnessed by the standing room only crowd that packed the BOE chambers.

But there remain questions regarding actions that were taken by the BOE, what is happening now and what the future holds. While some of those questions can’t be definitively answered just yet, I’ll try to share what we know and what we’ve observed. And I’ll offer my best guess at what the future holds.

Let’s start with the BOE meeting itself.

The board appeared discombobulated when the meeting began and there’s a reason for that.

An agenda item had been added by Pattie Neill allowing her to take a 60-day leave and BOE members saw it for the first time when they sat down. They were somewhat blindsided.

BOE President Kathy Brown stated later in the meeting that this had never happened before.

Brown was correct. The Tribune has been covering BOE meetings and workshops for over 14 years and we’ve never seen an agenda item added without the board’s knowledge. It was a curveball from Neill who wasn’t at the meeting.

While this was a new move to the TCS BOE, it wasn’t new to Neill.

In 2007, when Neill was then known as Patricia Ragsdale, she presented a proposal to the Cumberland County school board in Tennessee in an effort to control her own departure as she faced a vote from the BOE to transfer her out of her Director of Schools (superintendent) position. That proposal was rejected. You can read the article here.

Prior to her removal from the Director of Schools post in Tennessee, Neill was vocal about wanting to be “left alone” to reach her 30-year service date. That would have allowed her to draw full retirement immediately.

Neill was named interim superintendent of TCS on July 30, 2012 and was named superintendent on Nov. 5, 2012. Her proposed 60-day leave, if fulfilled, would push her past the 10 year mark, the earliest an employee can be vested in the Teachers Retirement System of Alabama.

Attorneys say the BOE can reverse the 60-day leave if they choose to do so. That decision may hinge on the findings of an outside investigation implemented by the board.

What’s happening now?

Even before Friday’s BOE meeting, we were seeing board members change the direction of how they had operated in the past. Based on information received, that continued following the meeting.

Let’s begin with communication. At the Tribune, we have grown accustomed to not hearing from BOE members over the last several years aside from the rare comment during meetings. Often, we received no response from the superintendent when we submitted questions.

Even when TCS hired Jason Gaston, one of the most respected communication professionals in Alabama, questions were often met with silence. While Gaston refused to fix blame on anyone, it was clear his hands were tied. Gaston left TCS for a similar position with Alabaster City Schools on Sept. 12.

This is very different from the days when the BOE was led by former presidents John Floyd, Bill Roberts, and Sid McNeal.

All three maintained ongoing, constant conversations with the Tribune both on and off the record. These conversations included making sure the Tribune had the most accurate information and inquiring as to what our staff was hearing in the community in order to keep themselves in touch and to better address citizen’s concerns. All three were readily available for comment to the Tribune whenever they were called on.

Last week’s statement from BOE VP Kim DeShazo was far bigger than most realize. Not only was the statement a stark new approach for this board, but the details of her statement conveyed a transparency and understanding not seen in years.

The statement pledged a change in transparency and communication with citizens, students, teachers, and the media. That demonstrates a deep level of understanding by board members of the issues that led to the community’s frustration. DeShazo literally wiped the slate clean in regard to everything the board had been doing in the past.

Additionally, DeShazo requested individual email accounts for board members and published those emails in The Loop on Saturday morning. For the first time, the public will have a direct unfiltered path to communicate with BOE members.

But there’s more. The statement added new information to the timeline of when Neill knew about the most recent incident at HTHS and when the BOE was informed.

The investigation into the threat incident took place on Friday, Sept, 16. The disciplinary hearing took place on either Monday, Sept. 19 or Tuesday, Sept. 20. According to DeShazo’s statement, board members were not informed by Neill until Wed. Sept. 21, a full five days after the investigation opened.

Around 8:30 p.m. on Sept, 21, just hours after board members heard about the incident, the HTHS story was published in The Trussville Tribune and included a lengthy comment from Neill.

Following Friday’s marathon meeting, BOE member Mark Sims began personally visiting schools. Sources inside the schools said some school administrators weren’t sure what to make of his appearance and others were openly excited to see him. Nevertheless, his visits were well received.

Sources tell me Neill no longer has access to the TCS central office, email or computers.

What’s next?

For starters, the board promised action and I believe them. There does seem to be a sense of urgency and DeShazo said that they would have to divide and conquer. That appears to be exactly what they’re doing. The expediency with which they’re moving is impressive.

Info is now flowing freely among school employees, past and present, as well as community members. My understanding is there is a lot of documentation accompanying this info.

How long the investigation will take is anyone’s guess, but there is reason to believe the board will have enough information to make the call on Neill’s future within days or weeks, not months. I don’t expect her to return.

There is reason for optimism with this board. Their concern with what they were hearing from the public was evident on Friday. Their actions since seem to indicate a commitment to correcting course quickly and getting it right. Make no mistake, there is much work to be done.

They heard you loud and clear, Trussville. And they’re moving forward in a deliberate fashion.

The August preliminary unemployment rate for Covington County saw a decrease to 2.9 percent.

The August rate decreased from July’s rate of 3.2 percent, which was also the same rate from August 2021. The county’s rate is slightly higher than the statewide rate of 2.6 percent.

Covington is ranked 29th for unemployment among Alabama’s 67 counties.

In other counties across the area, Geneva recorded the lowest unemployment at 2.5 percent. Butler and Conecuh counties each had the highest at 4.2 percent, but Butler was down from July’s rate of 4.7 percent while Conecuh was down from the previous month’s 4.6.

Coffee County’s unemployment rate for August was 2.8 percent; Crenshaw County was 2.9 percent; and Escambia County came in at 3.4 percent.

Alabama’s preliminary, seasonally adjusted August unemployment rate held steady from the previous month at 2.6 percent. August’s rate is well below August 2021’s rate of 3.3 percent. August’s rate represents 58,958 unemployed persons, a new record low, compared to 59,359 in July and 74,505 in August 2021.

“Alabama continues to maintain its record-setting recovery with this month’s numbers,” said Governor Kay Ivey. “All of our metrics continue to move in the right direction, and we’re seeing more and more people joining our labor force. This positive news displays that Alabamians are confident they can land a job. Opportunities are abound in Alabama, and we’re proud of our continued progress.”

The number of people counted as employed also reached a new record high, increasing by 67,881 over the year to 2,234,669. An increase in the civilian labor force in August also raised its level to a new record high, gaining 52,334 people over the year to total of 2,293,627.

“We continue to add jobs to our economy at a good pace,” said Labor Secretary Fitzgerald Washington. “Right now, there are around two available jobs for every unemployed person. Our construction industry is thriving, and growing construction employment generally tends to predict positive economic growth.”

Over the year, wage and salary employment increased 36,800, with gains in the construction sector (+9,800), the education and health services sector (+9,300), the trade, transportation and utilities sector (+7,100), among others.

Wage and salary employment increased in August by 1,500. Monthly gains were seen in the professional and business services sector (+3,100), the education and health services sector (+2,700), the government sector (+2,300), among others.

All 67 counties saw their unemployment rates decline over year, and all counties saw their unemployment rates hold steady or decline over the month.

Counties with the lowest unemployment rates are: Shelby County at 2 percent; Marshall and Cullman counties at 2.2 percent, and Morgan, Limestone, Chilton and Blount counties at 2.3 percent.

Counties with the highest unemployment rates are: Wilcox County at 10 percent, Lowndes County at 7.4, and Perry County at 7.2 percent.

Major cities with the lowest unemployment rates are: Vestavia Hills at 1.6, Homewood and Trussville at 1.8, and Alabaster and Hoover at 1.9 percent.

Major cities with the highest unemployment rates are: Selma at 8.5 percent, Prichard at 6.5, and Anniston at 4.6 percent.

PELHAM – The Kiwanis Club of Alabama is making its way to the Pelham and Alabaster area as it readies to launch a new chapter.

“Kiwanis clubs’ focus on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time,” reads the Kiwanis Club official website. “To reach more people and have a greater service impact on their communities, many clubs sponsor a Kiwanis family club.”

The Kiwanis Club has an ultimate goal of doing charity and philanthropy work for children in the area.

“The Kiwanis Club started in Birmingham, and it is worldwide,” District Three Lieutenant David Hart said. “Their motto is, ‘Helping children of the world,’ so all the charities that they do are focused on children, and we have many chapters in the Birmingham area.”

Hart has 12 chapters throughout the area.

“There is a lot of chapters and each chapter has their own individual personality based on what they like to do,” Hart said. “We have a golf tournament, some have a pancake breakfast. But during the year, we do smaller charitable (events) such food drives. We just did a blood drive for the Red Cross at the Hoover Library in July that went very well.”

Other philanthropy events include the Ronald McDonald House and food pantries in the area.

“We had one (chapter) in Helena, Columbiana and Calera,” Hart said. “This is going to be In the Pelham/Alabaster year, when we were targeting an area where we could grow, that was the first place that came to mind.”

Hart said a meeting will be held to discuss the needs of the community and what the Kiwanis Club of Alabama can do to service these needs.

“We will ask in those meetings, ‘What can we contribute to the community?’ And a lot of times, it is just food,” Hart said. “We have a large population of people who don’t have food, and that is kind of shocking when you look around the Hoover, Pelham and Alabaster area, we still have a large population of people who go hungry.”

The first meeting for the Kiwanis Club of Alabama Alabaster/Pelham chapter will be at the Pelham Library on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 5 p.m.

More information about Kiwanis Club can be found at Facebook.com/Alkiwanis.com.

ALABASTER, Ala. (WBRC) - COVID-19′s impact on customer behavior has led to a shift in the retail industry.

In-person interaction and digital engagement has changed causing many big-box stores to either close their doors or revamp their stores.

Big-box stores like Bed Bath & Beyond or restaurants like O’Charley’s and Steak ‘n Shake have been closed with nothing new moved in.

Some big-box stores are going through transitions and renovations and some like Bed Bath & Beyond have moved out due to many of their stores closing nationally.

However, the city of Alabaster is stepping up. When any big-box store closes, the city’s revenue gets hit, but when new tenants come in like Home Goods and Crumbl Cookies, soon their revenue will increase.

The city is meeting with developers, trying to get those spaces filled and offer what they can like expedited permitting and better infrastructure for new commercial growth.

Brian Binzer, city administrator for city of Alabaster, said the retailers and the restaurants that are really making the situation better for themselves ultimately long term, are re-investing in themselves.

“Walmart is going to do the same thing and Target as well, where they are putting in major improvements in their stores, the movie theatre, the Amstar that’s in our community they are changing out the seats, making them nicer and those types of things,” Binzer said. “We are happy to see those improvements, it’s a little bit painful because we will see some minor loss in revenue to some degree, but the benefits long-term are going to be very big for the city.”

Many Alabaster residents wondering about the District 31 project off Highway 31 where many stores and restaurants were scheduled to come.

A few years ago, a big-box store couldn’t make it work for the site, they had to reconfigure and should announce those new stores and restaurants soon.
