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 Carrolton 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 Carrolton.

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 Carrolton, GA

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 Carrolton, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Carrolton, GA

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.

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

Raiders rookies connect with Las Vegas youth, give back to local Boys and Girls Club

Dylan Parham and Zamir White might have seen some potential future NFL receivers Thursday evening at the Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club.

The two rookies were running block shedding and release drills with some children when one young boy, who couldn't have been older than 10 years old, made a solid routine push off a Dylan Parham block. White, who was tasked with the duties of covering the kids on their routes, let the boy slide by him to make the catch on the drill – watching him ultimately make an impressive diving one-handed catch.

It made quite the impression on Parham and White.

"We've seen some sneaky athletes in here man, it was crazy," Parham told Raiders.com. "One of the guys, whew! One-handed snag on Zamir, it was crazy. I could really see the enjoyment from this and how excited they were. You could see the smiles and that was the best part about all of this."

This was one of the first opportunities the Raiders rookie class has had to get involved within the Las Vegas community, facilitating a football clinic for over 50 children, ranging from ages 7-12.

Along with running drills, the rookies took photos with the kids and the club received an autographed ball from the class. In return, the Raiders organization received the Program Services Partner of the Year Award – in recognition of the team's never-ending support and commitment to the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada.

The volunteer experience with the Boys & Girls Club was a full-circle moment for Parham, who spent time in the organization as a middle `schooler in Carrollton, Georgia. He recognizes that he could have the same impact on young lives in Las Vegas the same way that others have poured into him.

"It was cool to be in that type of environment and setting again reliving some of those moments," said Parham. "We didn't have opportunities like this to have a professional team come out and play with us like this in that time period, so it's really feels good to give back in that aspect.

"Some of my best friends I have to this day I met through the Boys & Girls Clubs. ... The whole organization, from the friends to the staff that I had in that time period, they really helped me throughout those years."

James Bearse, the director of marketing for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, was elated to see the kids show off their best football skills to some pro talent. He believes the Silver and Black has been a welcome addition to the desert, and is looking forward to a continued partnership.

"The kids get to interact with the athletes and just realize that they're regular people that happen to be five to six times bigger than them," said Bearse. "So when they get to meet the athletes, they realize that they care for the community, they care for the kids and they get to have a blast interacting with them.

"It's always a special time when they get to come out and participate with us."

Everett Roussaw decommits from Arkansas

Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove linebacker Everett Roussaw has de-committed from the Arkansas Razorbacks. Roussaw, 6-2, 225, reopened his recruitment with an announcement via Twitter at approximately 2 p.m. central on Tuesday afternoon."I would like to start by thanking the University of Arkansas, and its staff for blessing me and my family with a great opportunity.

Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove linebacker Everett Roussaw has de-committed from the Arkansas Razorbacks. Roussaw, 6-2, 225, reopened his recruitment with an announcement via Twitter at approximately 2 p.m. central on Tuesday afternoon.

"I would like to start by thanking the University of Arkansas, and its staff for blessing me and my family with a great opportunity. I really appreciate Coach Smith and Coach Pittman for recruiting me. After prayer, talking to my family/loved ones and lots of consideration, I will be decommitting from the University of Arkansas! This is a huge decision and the most important thing is I find the best place for me. Although I am decommitting Arkansas is still one of the schools I will be considering."

Roussaw originally committed to the Razorbacks on January 23 when he turned down offers from Louisville, Mississippi State, Missouri, UCF, Virginia Tech, and Charlotte. He was recruited to Fayetteville by Arkansas linebackers coach Michael Scherer and running backs coach Jimmy Smith, who served as Cedar Grove’s head coach prior to entering the college coaching ranks.

The Razorbacks added a new linebacker commitment over the weekend in Alex Sanford of Oxford (Miss.) and are still very much in the mix for another in Brad Spence of Houston (Texas) Klein Forest. Arkansas still has one linebacker committed in Carson Dean of Carrollton (Texas) Hebron.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Roussaw is a three-star recruit, the No. 77 linebacker in the nation and the No. 95 overall prospect in the state of Georgia for the Class of 2023. 247Sports has him as the nation’s No. 109 linebacker target and the No. 110 player in the Peach State.

Roussaw's decommitment drops Arkansas' team ranking to No. 8 in the nation and No. 2 in the SEC for the Class of 2023. The Razorbacks are expected to sign at least 25 new additions in the 2023 cycle with a chance to go over, as there is no maximum for new signees in 2023.

Here's a look at Arkansas' current depth at linebacker ahead of the 2022 season:

The 10 Best School Districts in Georgia

A good school can lead to a lifetime of opportunities. Myriad data shows that lifetime earnings dramatically increase with every degree obtained. Bachelor’s degree holders will earn an average of roughly $26,000 more each year than high school graduates. And for those who decide that pursuing a college degree is not the best postsecondary option, a good school will provide students with the tools and support to make that choice, and the foundational skills necessary to succeed in the workforce.

For many families, the school district is a top criteria when deciding where to buy a home. But this consideration and ability to choose is not a luxury all families can afford, especially in today’s wildly competitive housing market.

One important proxy of a quality education is per-student spending. According to the most recent Census data available, the national average per-pupil expenditure in fiscal year 2019 was $13,187. Several recent studies suggest that increased spending per student correlates with higher academic achievement, particularly in districts serving predominantly low-income students. Since public schools are largely funded by property taxes, schools in low-income areas suffer the most from a lack of funding for critical expenditures like staff salaries and benefits, transportation, instructional resources, and support services.

There are more than 13,000 school districts in the U.S., each one slightly different, for better or worse, than the next. However, several common denominators exist and, when compared, can serve as indicators of what makes an impactful district.

Stacker compiled a list of the best school districts in Georgia using rankings from Niche. Niche ranks school districts based on a variety of criteria including academics (SAT/ACT scores and state proficiency tests), teacher salaries, expenses per student, and access to extracurricular activities.

The Mountain Brook Croquet Club hosted its inaugural Golf Croquet event June 10-12.

The club was created by Arthur Bagby, the Alabama Director of the United States Croquet Association. The Mountain Brook Croquet Club features a full size lawn adjacent to the back side of the Bagby home.

For the three day event, seven Mountain Brook croquet club members competed with visiting players from Georgia and Tennessee.

Representing the MBCC were Michael Seale, Matthew Jackson, Robert Schoel, Todd Russell, Lee Yeilding, Miller Connaway, and Tom Shelton.

From Georgia, Jimmy Huff and Kent Lovvorn, represented the Carroll County Croquet Club, based in Carrollton Georgia.

Huff and Lovvorn are seasoned veterans on the croquet tournament scene, and have participated in multiple Golf Croquet National Championships. Huff is currently ranked 26th nationally, and Lovvorn is reigning Southeast Regional Champ and ranked 23rd nationally. Ying Benns traveled from Lookout Mountain, Tenn. to complete and became the MBCC’s newest member.

Block play began Friday afternoon and players were divided into two separate blocks where they competed in a round robin competition.

On Saturday morning, block play completed and the Semifinals and Cup brackets were seeded with Kent Lovvorn, Todd Russell, Matthew Jackson, and Jimmy Huff moving on to the semifinals.

Saturday afternoon, the remaining six competitors battled it out for the Cup championship. In the end, Robert Schoel battled club stalwart Lee Yeilding for the Cup, with Yielding sneaking by with a 7-6 victory.

During the semifinals on Sunday, Kent Lovvorn triumphed 7-4, 4-7, 7-5. The Mountain Brook Croquet Club’s club champion was set to be determined by the second semifinal match between Matthew Jackson and Todd Russell. Jackson won the day decisively, 7-5, 4-7, 7-5.

With temps hitting mid 90’s and high humidity, the finals began Sunday afternoon. Jackson, a talented, yet unranked player faced off with one of the top players in the United States in his very first sanctioned tournament.

In game one Jackson scored the first two hoops and held on tight winning 7-6. Game two went to Kent Lovvorn, who fought back for a 7-4 win. Ultimately the victory fell to Kent Lovvorn, winning the final game 7-5.
