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. From a residential standpoint, you need it to cook, clean, entertain, and live comfortably. For commercial purposes, electricity is used to power the computers needed to keep America moving.

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.

 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

Alabaster CityFest will be back in 2022 with a country star and “American Idol” fan favorite as its headliner.

Lauren Alaina is scheduled to perform on June 4 at the free event in Alabama, organizers announced on Monday. Vertical Horizon, a ‘90s rock band led by singer Matt Scannell, and Elvie Shane, a country singer-songwriter known for the single “My Boy,” also are on the agenda.

Alaina, 27, competed on Season 10 of “American Idol,” coming in second to Scotty McCreery. She’s moved on to a high-profile career in country music, releasing three studio albums and singles such as “Road Less Traveled,” “Like My Mother Does,” “Next Boyfriend” and “Doin’ Fine.”

Alaina also has been featured on hits such as “What Ifs” with Kane Brown, “Thinking ‘Bout You” with Dustin Lynch and “One Beer” with Hardy and Devin Dawson. She’s no stranger to Alabama, performing here at venues such as Oak Mountain Amphitheatre and the Rock the South festival.

Alaina returned to “American Idol” this year to mentor contestants during Hollywood Week in Season 20. She also performed a duet with McCreery on a recent “Idol” special celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary.

Alaina has several award nominations to her credit, and trophies from CMT and the Academy of Country Music.

Alabaster CityFest has been on hiatus for two years during the coronavirus pandemic. The festival, held on the front lawn of Thompson High School, 1921 Warrior Parkway, also includes carnival rides, a car show, family-friendly activities, food vendors and more.

The event begins at 9 a.m. Music starts at 11 a.m., according to the festival website. Here’s the schedule:

Alabaster CityFest is organized by the Alabaster Arts Council. Sponsors include Central State Bank, Coca-Cola and the City of Alabaster. Previous performers at Alabaster CityFest have included McCreery, Rodney Atkins, Travis Tritt, Josh Turner, Tracy Lawrence, Sister Hazel and Ed Kowalczyk of Fuel.

South Carolina inching closer to the 85 scholarship limit

As mentioned in previous columns, transfers are needed for South Carolina to meet the 85 scholarship limit. With the spring game concluded and a more definitive depth chart established, eight additional players have entered the transfer portal.

Wide Receiver Sam Reynolds: Reynolds is from Alabaster, Alabama. He was a part of Shane Beamer’s first recruiting class, but was offered by and committed to the previous staff. When Beamer took the job, he honored all commitments in the 2021 class. Reynolds saw special teams action against UNC in the bowl game this past season.

Wide Receiver EJ Jenkins: Jenkins transferred to USC from St. Francis University along with former quarterback Jason Brown. Jenkins was originally recruited as a tight end, but ended up fulfilling a role at wide receiver. He struggled to see consistent playing time early in the 2021 season, but collected more time as the season progressed. Jenkins saved his best game for last, against UNC in the Mayo Bowl. Although he only had 1 catch for 7 yards in the Bowl game, Jenkins was a force blocking on the perimeter, helping spring multiple big runs.

Wide Receiver Eric Shaw: Shaw was a part of the 2020 recruiting class and hails from Notasulga, Alabama. He was recruited as a tight end, but had difficulty adding mass to assist in holding his ground against SEC defensive linemen. Shaw was moved to wide receiver during the 2021 season, but did not see any playing time. He had several opportunities to make plays in the 2022 spring game, but was unable to capitalize on them.

Wide Receiver Rico Powers: Powers was a part of the 2020 recruiting class and is originally from Atlanta, Georgia. Powers played in two games and caught two passes for a total of 12 yards in 2021. With his departure, all 3 receivers from the 2020 recruiting class have transferred out.

Offensive Tackle Jazston Turnetine: Turnetine is originally from Stockbridge, Georgia, but enrolled at Carolina via way of Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. He was a part of the 2020 recruiting class and started 7 games in 2021 while participating in 11. Turnetine is a massive offensive tackle that struggled against speed rushers coming off the edge and often had issues making it to the second level when run blocking. Carolina’s pro style offense requires offensive linemen who are agile and run well. Unfortunately, Turnetine is no longer a fit within South Carolina’s blocking schemes.

Defensive Tackle Will Rogers: Rogers was a part of the 2019 recruiting class and hails from Hampton, Georgia. He was recruited as an offensive lineman, but flipped to defensive line for depth purposes. Rogers did not see any playing time in the 2021 season.

Defensive Tackle Keem Green: Green is originally from Sumter, South Carolina and transferred to USC from the University of Nebraska. He did not see the field in 2021 and found himself a part of a deep defensive tackle rotation heading into 2022.

Defensive Tackle DeVontae Davis: Davis is originally from Silver Bluff, South Carolina and was a part of the 2019 recruiting class, enrolling from Georgia Military College. He played in 8 games in 2021 and collected 4 total tackles.

Previous 2021 departures and their new schools:

LB - Kolbe Fields (2021 class) - Louisiana State

QB - Jason Brown (2021 class) - Virginia Tech

CB - Karon Prunty (2021 class) - North Carolina A&T

CB - Dominick Hill (2020 class) - Temple

WR - Ger-Cari Caldwell (2020 class) - Still in transfer portal

TE - Keveon Mullins (2019 class) - Jackson State

OL - Vincent Murphy (2019 class) - Western Kentucky

LB - Jahmar Brown (2019 class) - Coastal Carolina

LB - Rosendo Louis (2018 class) - Still in transfer portal

WR - OrTre Smith (2017 class) - North Carolina Central

OL - Jordan Rhodes (2017 class) - Ole Miss

As Shane Beamer continues to reshape the roster to his liking, the 2019 recruiting class now stands at 7 players on the current roster. The 2019 class was rated 19th overall by Rivals and had 22 commitments. Players that have not transferred out from the 2019 class are listed below.

WR - Xavier Leggette

TE - Traevon Kenion

OL - Jaylen Nichols

OL - Jakai Moore

DE - Hot Rod Fitten

DT - Zacch Pickens

CB - Cam Smith

Note: RB Kevin Harris did not transfer, but opted to enter the NFL Draft.

There are certainly some young talented players transferring out, but due to South Carolina bringing in one of the best transfer classes in 2022 along with a strong high school recruiting class, transitions needed to be made. South Carolina now sits very close to the 85 scholarship limit, but that does not mean this staff will sit idle if another player enters the portal who they feel is a strong fit. Although the max 32 scholarships for 2022 have been offered, blueshirt opportunities still exist.

Regions Bank hosts a hands-on financial education tour for Birmingham, Alabama-area students with disabilities.

Northampton, MA --News Direct-- Regions Bank

By Candace Higginbotham

Regions Bank closed out Financial Literacy Month in a special way.

On April 28, the Pelham, Alabama, branch welcomed 25 students from Hueytown High School for a tour of the bank facility and a discussion about the importance of financial wellness.

The tour was facilitated by United Ability, a Birmingham-based nonprofit whose mission is to provide innovative services connecting people with disabilities to their communities and empowering individual to live full and meaningful lives.

Regions has enjoyed a close relationship with United Ability for many years, providing financial support, volunteerism and board service.

Pelham Branch Manager Jeremy Bouet and Alabaster Branch Manager Daisy Mendoza led the tour, along with Kathy Lovell, Regions Disability Services and Outreach manager.

The students, mostly 11th graders, are currently participating in a classroom-based money management program in partnership with United Ability to help them successfully transition to life after high school. Some students will go to community college, some will go to trade school, and some will enter the workforce.

“All the tours we take the students on are important, but this one was especially so because not only are the students exposed to potential future careers, but also important life lessons,” said Danielle Knoblock, employment specialist at United Ability. “I’m appreciative of Regions for stressing the importance of being knowledgeable about their finances and how that relates to being independent. This is setting them up for success in more ways than one.”

Lovell explained how understanding basic banking processes can help ensure this success.

“A bank can be an intimidating experience if you’re not familiar, particularly for a person with disabilities,” Lovell said. “We want to make them comfortable with the environment and put their classroom instruction to work so when they need to visit on their own, they’ll know what to do, who to talk to and what information they need to have available.”

Lovell provided the students with highlights of the services Regions provides to , including audio ATMs, braille stickers for ATMs and other accessible products, services and options in our branches, offices and online through digital banking.

Opinion | High praise for low unemployment

Just about everyone who wants a job in most parts of Alabama should have one by now with unemployment at 2.9 percent.

That low rate is tied for the all-time low in our state’s history. The latest numbers show an improvement over the 3.0 percent rate in February and 3.7 percent in March of this year.

For the most part, Alabamians have never had a problem wanting to work. We have an innate work ethic and, as a whole, we take a great deal of pride in the work we do. That’s of course not everyone everywhere, but that is the spirit of the average Alabamian I believe.

Things are on an upswing and attribute it to whomever and whatever you’d like, it’s a great thing for our state, our citizens and our economy.

While the March rate represents 65,485 unemployed people, that’s the lowest number recorded in our state’s history. That number is down by 8,663 in February and an astounding 82,443 in that same time in 2021 – six months before the beginning of the COVIC-19 pandemic.

The number of people employed rose by 36,734 over the year to 2,204,978, and there have been 40,000 jobs gained since last year.

According to the Alabama Department of Labor, the civilian labor force increased by 9,901 to 2,270,463 over the month. The number of people employed increased by 36,734 over the year to 2,204,978.

Alabama has seen excellent job growth with more than 40,000 new jobs since last year.

Since last month, the greatest gains were seen in construction with 2,200 jobs; leisure and hospitality with 2,200; and the government sector with 2,500.

Shelby County had the lowest unemployment rate in the state with 1.7 percent. Cullman had 1.8 percent; and Limestone, Marshall and Morgan counties all followed with 1.9 percent.

Counties with the highest unemployment rates are Wilcox County with 8.8 percent; Lowndes with 6.5 percent; and Perry with 6.3 percent.

Major cities with the lowest unemployment rates are: Alabaster and Vestavia Hills at 1.4 percent; Homewood at 1.5 percent; and Hoover and Trussville at 1.6 percent.

Major cities with the highest unemployment rates are: Selma at 6.9 percent; Prichard at 5.0 percent; and Anniston at 4.7 percent.

While high gas prices approaching inflation and taxes might be fodder for political speeches, you won’t hear anyone talking about unemployment. There’s only high praise for low unemployment in Alabama.

Gators set to host this 5-star defensive lineman for June official visit

The Florida Gators made the top four for five-star defensive lineman Peter Woods at the end of March, and now the Thompson (Alabaster, Alabama) recruit is set to take a three-day official visit to Gainesville in June, according to 247Sports.

Woods will arrive on Thursday, June 9, and stay through Saturday, June 11. It’ll be his second official visit following a trip to Clemson the week before his visit to the Swamp. Alabama and Oklahoma, the other two programs that made Woods’ top four, are likely to get him over the summer as well. He’s a former ‘Bama commit and the Crimson Tide was the only team to get him on campus in spring.

Florida played host to Woods in the past but it was under the old staff. This will be Billy Napier’s first in-person opportunity to convince him to come to Florida. There’s no official timeline set for Woods’ decision, but he aims to have things wrapped up before the start of the season.

Madness in March! Thank you to everyone who has taken out of their time to recruit me up to this point . #Final4 pic.twitter.com/vB5j7VEPEj

— Peter Woods (@35Pwoo) March 31, 2022

Both Gators co-defensive coordinators have been in touch with Woods and Patrick Toney is planning to drop by his school to see him and five-star cornerback Tony Mitchell in action. Woods says he trusts Sean Spencer to develop him and prepare him for the next level if he does choose Florida.

“Coach Napier came in and made that staff amazing and took some guys from a little bit of everywhere and I respect the vision of the program,” he said.”They hopped on me as soon as they got there and Florida’s great reputation speaks for itself. I’ve been talking to Coach Spencer a lot, and he’s been there and done that on every level and I have faith in his ability to develop me.”

Woods is ranked the No. 26 overall recruit in the class of 2023, according to the 247Sports composite. He ranks third among defensive linemen in the class.
