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 Birmingham 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 Birmingham.

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 Birmingham, 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 Birmingham, AL, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Birmingham, 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 Birmingham, 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

This fall, students in all of Colleton County’s public schools will walk into classrooms with a buddy who helps to look out for them. This buddy, or mentor, is also known as a School Resource Officer (SRO).

SRO’s are law enforcement officers employed with the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office. Each officer who chooses to become an SRO does receives special and additional training through the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy. This training allows them to work with children and to be leaders in local schools.

After completing this additional training, each SRO in Colleton County is then assigned to a certain school. There, these officers work with their schools’ administration, helping teachers and school leaders to influence students in a positive way.

“These officers ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff within our schools,” said Colleton County Sheriff Buddy Hill. “They play a critical role in our community’s safety and in the education of our students. We look forward to all that our officers will do this year to help our students and our communities thrive.”

School Resource Officers are trained by the sheriff’s office and are funded jointly, through the efforts of the sheriff’s office and the Colleton County School District.

This year, each school in Colleton County will have assigned SRO’s. Colleton County High School has two of these officers. This is because of the number of students who attend the school.

Colleton County School District Superintendent Dr. Vallerie Cave said she sets safety as a priority. “Through the support of the SRO partnership our students and families can be assured we put safety and well-being first. We appreciate the support of the Sheriff’s Department and look forward to a great school year,” she said.

These School Resource Officer assignments are:

Colleton County High School: Deputy Robin “Caroline” Chaplin and Deputy L. Cummings

Colleton County Middle School: Deputy Kyle Breland and Deputy Daniel Lopez

Hendersonville Elementary School: Cpl. Stencil White

Bells Elementary School: Cpl. Jimmy Wiggins

Cottageville Elementary School: Deputy Heidi Coleman

Northside Elementary School: Sgt. Shannon Thomason

Forest Hills Elementary School: Lt. Ricky Valentine

Black Street Elementary School: Cpl. Chad Cummings

Annually students in grades three through eight participate in state assessments for the content areas of English Language Arts, mathematics, and science. These assessments measure a student’s mastery level of grade level standards. The test administered for English Language Arts and mathematics is the South Carolina College-and-Career Readiness Assessment (SCREADY) while the South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS) assesses science. The SCPASS is given to students in grades four and six only.

Key Points:

• Overall, there was positive growth between the school years 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 in all content areas as indicated in Figure 1.1. The data indicates English Language Arts experienced 5.49%, mathematics 2.81%, and science 6.18% of growth. This growth can be attributed to the initiatives implemented during 2021-2022 school year. Those initiatives include but not limited to refining professional learning communities (PLCs), the implementation of a reading curriculum in kindergarten through grade five, an increase of focused professional learning opportunities for all staff and focused leadership development.

• There is positive progress for both ELA and Math in grades three, five, six, seven, and eight when comparing the percentages of students scoring meeting or exceeding expectations from the 2021-2022 school year to the 2020-2021 school year as indicated in Figure 1.1.

• While progress can be noted in English Language Arts in grade four, regression was seen in mathematics and science between the 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 school years as indicated in Figure 1.1.

• When comparing the achievement performance of Colleton County School District students versus their grade level peers across the state, while we have made progress one can determine that our students are still not performing at the level of their peers across the state as indicated in Figure 1.1 and 1.2.

• One can compare the growth between the 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 school years for both the district and the state. It should be noted in this comparison, students in grades six, seven and eight had more growth than their grade level peers across the state as indicated in Figure 1.3.

• When looking at the percentage of students scoring meeting and exceeding between the school years 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 in Figure 1.1, the following points can be made about each school location:

o Bells Elementary, Hendersonville Elementary, and Colleton County Middle School saw positive growth for all grade levels and in all content areas.

o Cottageville Elementary demonstrated positive growth in all grade levels for mathematics and science along with third grade English Language Arts.

o Forest Hills Elementary noted positive growth for fourth and fifth grade English Language Arts along with third and fifth grade mathematics.

o Positive growth can be noted at Northside Elementary for fifth grade English Language Arts along with third and fifth grade mathematics.

District staff has utilized the data trends to inform the decision-making process in regards to student learning and the 2022-2023 school year. Schools will continue to implement the initiatives from the 2021-2022 school year along with implementing new innovative practices so that we can meet the needs of all students. Some of the innovative practices that will be implemented during the 2022-2023 school year are ArtsNow, STEM, Coding for the Littles, Focus on Culturally Responsive Teaching, the continued implementation of a reading curriculum for kindergarten through grade five, and the implementation of a mathematics and reading curriculum for grades six through eight.

Birmingham is starving itself to death

This is an opinion column.

I’m sitting here in Birmingham, Alabama, thinking “Dang, you can’t go online these days without hearing bad news.”

And by bad news I mean if I see another story about how flippin’ great Huntsville is, I’m gonna yack all over my “Take that s#$& Back to Hoover” T-shirt.

Not because I wish ill of Huntsville. I used to live there, for Pete’s sake. I’m happy for it, in the same way I pretended to be “happy” for Auburn back when that team had success. It hurt, but I felt obliged.

I joked the other day – in the face of all that federally funded north Alabama success – that if Huntsville is to be taken seriously it needs to put out an APB for its skyline, and prosecute whoever made off with it.

“Pshaw,” a Birmingham booster muttered. “Huntsville is half the city Birmingham is… except for population.”

Except for population. And there’s the rub.

I’m not really mad at Huntsville. Haters gonna hate is all. I’m just frustrated at Birmingham – and when I say Birmingham I mean the 1.1 million people in the metro who seem like neighbors but are siloed by invisible lines – because those divisions keep us from having nicer things.

The Birmingham Metro Area – 89 municipalities and 23 public school districts – is a protect-your-own-and-eff-the-rest set of communities, many of which broke away from Birmingham in white flight and formed school systems as a direct result of desegregation. Division has been an albatross.

But that’s all right, right? Everybody thinks they’re doing fine. Mountain Brook is fine and Hoover is fine and Birmingham is fine and everything is fine. Just fine.

Fine is … fine.

Except, according to the non-partisan Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama’s award-winning report on regional cooperation a few years ago, it’s not. Fragmentation has not only led to a decline in Birmingham’s prominence, but is a drag on metropolitan growth.

Seems like it. Average employment across the Birmingham region has been stagnant this whole century, and the same is true of income growth and poverty rates. It’s true of splintered regions across the country.

“In cities where government is fragmented, growth is slower, and social and economic problems are more concentrated,” the PARCA report said. “The negative effects of fragmentation weigh not only on the center city but also on the metropolitan area as a whole. The fortunes of the central city and its suburbs are interlocked.”

It’s like that old Aesop’s fable where the parts of the body got mad because the stomach was getting all the grub. The hands stopped forking, the mouth stopped chewing, and the throat went on a swallowing strike to teach that belly a lesson. Pretty soon the whole body began to starve.

The Birmingham metro is slowly starving itself. To spite its gut.

Perhaps it always worried about its differences more than it valued its possibilities. Consolidation efforts twice failed in Birmingham in the ‘60s and ‘70s. The metro had the chance to come together like Nashville, or Jacksonville, but chose to scatter to the wind instead.

I had long hoped Birmingham would be jealous enough to come to its senses when threatened, to find a way to cooperate when Huntsville became Alabama’s real magic city. After all, Louisville was motivated, at least in part, to consolidate government in 2003 after Lexington passed it in population.

But divided we continue to stand, and watch others pass by.

Some say the mayors of different area cities are communicating more – and council members, too. There is more talk of shared services than there used to be, and every five years or so another task force forms to find elusive “regional cooperation.” But little comes of it, and in the end the legislative delegation, which has more control than all those others, just sits divided and fiddles fat and happy.

While we, the people of the Birmingham Metro Area, face starvation.

With 89 tiny kingdoms and 89 castles and courts, we duplicate services, compete against each other instead of the world, build a Tale of 89 Cities, a community of haves and have nots, and watch places like Huntsville zoom by.

It’s time to wake up, Birmingham. Again. It’s time to wake up and eat.

Media contact: Shannon Thomason

Students at the University of Alabama at Birmingham partnered with Better Basics to share the Blazer Way and joys of literacy with children at Tuggle Elementary School on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at the Blazers Read event.

Better Basics is a local nonprofit organization with a mission to increase reading literacy in children, helping them realize their full potential, achieve their dreams and thrive in an ever-changing world. Members of the UAB chapter of the Public Relations Council of Alabama/Public Relations Student Society of America and Catholic Blazers participated in Blazers Read, a community service event that allowed volunteers to read to K-second grade students. Students read several books to the children, including “Miss Bindergarten and the Best Friends” and “There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow.” This creative project was part of the public relations campaign the students are delivering for their capstone class.

“Being able to provide joy through reading to the next generation is a privilege,” said Nathan Anderson, president of PRCA/PRSSA at UAB. “It is our duty as public relations professionals to prepare our future leaders.”

Community service is at the heart of the public relations capstone class, Campaigns, in which students develop their public relations agencies to deliver campaigns for local nonprofit organizations of their choice. The course is through the College of Arts and SciencesDepartment of Communication Studies public relations program.

“I am so proud of these students,” said Jacquelyn Shaia, J.D., Ph.D., and director of the public relations program at UAB. “Dylan Baggiano, Ann Marie Stephens and Anaya Yoakum have worked remarkably hard to develop a solid campaign that will help this organization achieve its goals. These students have developed into young professionals and will represent UAB and the field well as they enter the workplace after graduation in December. They are truly ready.”

PRCA/PRSSA UAB is a student-led organization that welcomes membership from all students across majors at UAB. The organization has established itself as one of the finest in the country with students winning a significant number of national and statewide awards every year. To learn more about membership opportunities for PRCA/PRSSA at UAB, visit the chapter’s website.
