We Keep Clemson Shining Bright

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. That's why, when the electricity in your home or at your job is compromised, life grinds to a halt. Unfortunately, electrical problems are inevitable in today's day and age.

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 Clemson 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 Clemson.

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 Clemson, SC

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 Clemson, SC

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 Clemson, SC, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Clemson, SC

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

Joining the ranks of Clemson doctoral students this Fall will be a full cohort of 12 accomplished individuals from the Clemson University Bridge to Doctorate (CUBD) Graduate Fellowship Program.

“We’re excited to welcome these accomplished men and women to Clemson to further their academic careers,” said President Jim Clements, CUBD Principal Investigator. “To attract a full 12-member cohort in this first group is an outstanding accomplishment for our faculty and staff as we continue to grow this program in the coming years to diversify and strengthen the STEM Ph.D. pipeline.”

Established this year with a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation program, along with additional resources provided by the University, full financial support will be provided to the group of 12 incoming underrepresented Ph.D. students enrolled in select programs in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) and the College of Science.

“These 12 remarkable students choosing to continue their education at Clemson is a testament to the work of not only our CUBD team but the tremendous academic reputation of Clemson University as a whole,” said Tonyia Stewart, Director of Graduate Recruitment and Inclusion in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.

Joining President Clements as co-PIs on the CUBD program are Clemson faculty members: Rajendra K. Bordia, materials science and engineering; Cindy Lee, engineering and science education; Oliver J. Myers, mechanical engineering; and Judith Salley-Guydon, biological and physical sciences at South Carolina State University.

The students will receive a $32,000 stipend for their first two years of education and research through the NSF’s funding, and the University will cover the cost of their remaining three years.

In addition to financial support, CUBD Scholars will benefit from Clemson’s supportive community, individual faculty and peer mentoring, advising, and advocacy. Beginning with the application process, CUBD Scholars have access to a built-in network for professional development and support as they pursue an advanced degree. Prospective students will complete a profile to express their interests, career goals and previous research experiences to be paired with leaders from Clemson’s STEM ALL-IN program, a collaborative effort between CECAS and the College of Science to recruit and retain underrepresented students pursuing a graduate degree at the University.

Additionally, students have a research adviser and the opportunity for mentorship from others through the CUBD Faculty Mentor Network. Participating faculty help students navigate graduate school, conduct dissertation research, create and attain goals outlined in individual development plans and network with established industry professionals.

Amid a 2023 recruiting tear, Clemson football is losing momentum with two four-star targets announcing Friday, according to expert predictions on various sites.

Four-star Alabama running back Jeremiah Cobb and four-star North Carolina wide receiver Christian Hamilton had both named Clemson — which has the nation’s fourth best 2023 recruiting class — a finalist heading into their pre-holiday decisions.

But experts at 247Sports, Rivals and On3 Sports are now overwhelmingly predicting that both recruits will stay in state: Cobb at Auburn and Hamilton at UNC.

And if Cobb picks the Tigers and Hamilton picks the Tar Heels, Clemson may need to restock its board for a class that, despite lots of defensive depth, currently has no running back commits and one wide receiver commit.

Cobb, who plays at Montgomery Catholic Prep and ranks as the nation’s No. 8 running back, officially visited Clemson the first weekend of June before visiting Auburn and Tennessee.

Despite the Tigers’ all-in push on Cobb, their top running back target since the spring, he holds five 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions to choose Auburn.

Three of those were filed this week.

Rivals and On3 Sports have also deemed Bryan Harsin’s Tigers the team to beat for No. 207 overall recruit Cobb, who rushed for 2,163 yards and 30 touchdowns as a junior while adding 561 yards and eight more touchdowns as a receiver.

If Cobb chooses Auburn, Clemson could turn to four-star Florida running back Christopher Johnson Jr. Clemson is yet to offer the Fort Lauderdale speedster but has been showing interest since the spring.

As of now, in-state program Miami is widely viewed as Johnson’s leader.

As for Hamilton, who announces his commitment Friday around 6:30 p.m.: his fading away from Clemson (and his other two announced finalists, Penn State and South Carolina) is less of a surprise, considering Hamilton’s only summer official visit was to Mack Brown’s UNC program.

The shifty Hickory Ridge High wideout, who had 916 yards and 12 touchdowns last year, ranks as the nation’s No. 30 receiver and No. 210 overall recruit. The Tigers were a late contender who offered Hamilton a scholarship in December and hosted him for a March junior day visit. He also had visited Clemson for a 2021 home game.

Hamilton has picked up three Crystal Ball predictions for UNC this week. Rivals and On3 Sports also favor the Tar Heels, who proved a worthy recruiting foe to Clemson in the 2022 cycle but are struggling to capture that magic in 2023.

Clemson has one 2023 receiver commit to date: Texas four-star recruit Noble Johnson, one of a record 12 players to choose the Tigers this month.

Four-star Florida recruit Nathaniel Joseph had been committed to Clemson since September 2021 before decommitting in mid-June, writing on Twitter that “some things took place that me and my family didn’t like.”

Joseph has since committed to Miami.

If Hamilton commits to UNC, Clemson would be down to one uncommitted receiver target with an offer: four-star Florida receiver Tyler Williams, who is trending toward Georgia over Clemson, South Carolina and Texas A&M.

A potential future target at the receiver position is three-star Georgia recruit Cayden Lee, who at 5-foot-11 fits the same slot profile as Joseph and Hamilton.

Lee doesn’t have an offer but attended camp at Clemson last summer and attended the Tigers’ 2021 season opener against Georgia.

Clemson is up to 15 verbal commits in the class of 2023 — with 14 ranking as four-star prospects or higher — after four-star Texas interior offensive lineman and No. 72 overall recruit Harris Sewell chose the Tigers on Wednesday over Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M.

After Sewell’s pledge, the Tigers only trail No. 1 Ohio State, No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 3 Texas in 247Sports’ continuously updated team rankings. They’re 10 spots ahead of the ACC’s next team (No. 14 Louisville).

Greenville's Blake Franks has South Carolina football recruiting offer and Clemson interest

Blake Franks wakes up to a different life than the one he led at the start of May, although he is doing his best to remain unchanged.

The Greenville High School junior offensive lineman began that month without a college offer before the first one came May 5 – and it was a big one from SEC program Mississippi.

Franks, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound prospect who plays multiple offensive line spots, now holds 10 offers after South Carolina, Penn State and North Carolina offered on three consecutive days starting last Thursday. His other offers are Miami (Florida), Louisville, Coastal Carolina, South Florida, Miami (Ohio) and Liberty.

Franks said the Mississippi offer "was really surprising because I didn't think that would happen for me, and I still don't really believe all the offers I'm getting right now. I've put the work in and I guess the (Mississippi) coaches saw that and felt they could offer right then and there. I plan on making a visit there for a game this season."

As for the sudden rapid rise in his recruiting, Franks said, "Some days it feels different and some days it doesn't. Some days I'm going to practice feeling like I have a target on my back because I have offers. It's definitely been a different experience just being able to talk to these college coaches I used to think were bigger than life.

"I feel if I indulge myself in this experience too much I might become soft, so I have to keep the mindset that I haven't won the war yet. I need to get more boxes checked off my checklist."

Franks' teammate also hot on recruiting trail:Greenville 2024 WR Mazeo Bennett already has USC offer, and interest from Clemson, too

USC's top 2023 wish list:Carolina football recruiting has 3 recent commits. Here's a list of top new targets

Upstate standout has plenty of options:Dorman lineman Markee Anderson 1 of only 2 in-state recruits with Clemson and USC offers

Not yet ranked in the 247Sports Composite for 2024, Franks has visited South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, Miami, Virginia Tech, Coastal Carolina and South Florida.

"It's really hard to say that just one school stood out, but Miami, Clemson and South Carolina all made it seem like I was coming home, a part of the family," he said. "All the coaches would just surround me with all the love and that was a very intriguing and different experience being there as a prospect."

He added that dealing in person with USC coach Shane Beamer, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney and Miami coach Mario Cristobal made him feel like they were extremely happy to have him on their campuses.

"Even though they are head coaches and I may have thought they didn't really care if I was there or not, they really made it seem like it was really important for me to be there," he said.

Franks grew up rooting for Clemson and said an offer from the Tigers would mean a lot.

"I'm trying to pull away from being a fan of any certain school. But I really enjoyed watching Clemson over the years, where they've been, the championships they've won and the players they've had go to the NFL and do great things," Franks said.

"But I try to look at schools more with the thought of I'm going to be there four years and I can't go based off me being a fan, or that the school has a nice look and I really enjoyed seeing it. I have to go somewhere based off being at the school four years, learning and growing as a player and a student. So I have to keep that in mind. I have to throw away the whole fan perspective."

Franks was always the tallest kid in class growing up and acknowledged he previously struggled with being overweight at times prior to becoming a freshman. By the end of his ninth-grade season, he'd become dedicated in the weight room and at practice and was in such good shape he believed he could begin last season as a starter.

While he played multiple positions, he spent the majority of snaps at left guard next to tackle Collin Sadler, now a Clemson freshman after rising to become the No. 153 overall prospect and 14th-best tackle in the country.

"Blake has a work ethic that is like nothing I've ever seen," Greenville coach Greg Porter said. "Collin was another one that way, and Blake definitely had the blueprint to follow with Collin, to watch him and how he prepared and how he got himself into a position where he was very marketable and an All-American type of player. Blake works hard, he has the measurements, he's strong and he has just a strong mental approach to want to get better every day that you don't usually see in high school kids."

Schnabel Named Assistant Head Coach & Recruiting Coordinator

CLEMSON, S.C. – Head Coach Erik Bakich announced on June 27, 2022 that Nick Schnabel joined the staff as assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator. Schnabel, who will work with the infielders, coached alongside Bakich during his tenure at Michigan from 2013-22 and was named national assistant coach-of-the-year by ABCA in 2019.“I’m thrilled to have Coach Schnabel join our staff at Clemson as assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator,” said Bakich. “We served together at Michigan for 10 years, a...

CLEMSON, S.C. – Head Coach Erik Bakich announced on June 27, 2022 that Nick Schnabel joined the staff as assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator. Schnabel, who will work with the infielders, coached alongside Bakich during his tenure at Michigan from 2013-22 and was named national assistant coach-of-the-year by ABCA in 2019.

“I’m thrilled to have Coach Schnabel join our staff at Clemson as assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator,” said Bakich. “We served together at Michigan for 10 years, and he has been a part of some great teams. His knowledge, work ethic, energy and recruiting prowess is unmatched. I’m excited for Nick, Emily, Cal and Caroline to be a part of the Clemson Family.”

Schnabel, 44, served as recruiting coordinator as well as working with the Wolverine infielders and hitters during his tenure in Ann Arbor. His 2018 recruiting class was ranked No. 10 in the nation by Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball, one of the highest rankings in program history and Big Ten Conference history.

Many of those players were instrumental in the 2019 team’s 50-22 record and an NCAA runner-up finish in the championship series of the College World Series, as Michigan came just one win shy of the national title. Schnabel was also a key part of NCAA Tournament appearances in 2017 and 2015, the first Big Ten Conference Tournament championship during his time at Michigan.

The 2022 team won the Big Ten Conference Tournament title and played in the Louisville Regional, advancing to the championship game. The 2021 Michigan team also made an NCAA Tournament appearance.

The 2020 team was poised for a successful season as well before it was cut short. Following that season, four Wolverines were drafted in the five-round draft, including three hitters under Schnabel’s tutelage, Jordan Nwogu (third round), Jesse Franklin (third round) and Jack Blomgren (fifth round).

Schnabel served three seasons (2010-12) at his alma mater, East Carolina, as hitting instructor, infield coach and recruiting coordinator. He also was hitting instructor and recruiting coordinator at Liberty (2008,09) and served as hitting instructor at Army West Point (2006,07).

In 2005, he was an assistant coach at Chipola (Fla.) College after he began his coaching career as the volunteer assistant coach at East Carolina in 2004, when the Pirates totaled 51 wins and advanced to the Columbia (S.C.) Super Regional.

He played alongside Bakich at East Carolina in 1999 and 2000. Schnabel was a First-Team All-CAA selection and CAA Defensive Player-of-the-Year in 1999. During both seasons, the Pirates won league titles and were No. 1 seeds in NCAA Regionals. In his two years in Greenville, he hit .333 with five homers, 29 doubles, 58 RBIs, 106 runs and 19 steals in 120 games.

Schnabel began his collegiate career at Ohlone (Calif.) College, where he was a first-team all-conference player.

After his playing career in college, Schnabel played four seasons (2000-03) and 189 games of minor league baseball in the Expos organization.

Schnabel graduated from East Carolina in 2003 with a degree in communications.

He was born Nicholas Arthur Schnabel on March 16, 1978 in Berkeley, Calif. The Martinez, Calif. native and his wife, Emily, have two children, Cal and Caroline.

Belanger Named Pitching Coach

CLEMSON, S.C. – Head Coach Erik Bakich announced on June 28, 2022 that Jimmy Belanger joined the staff as assistant coach and pitching coach. Belanger spent the last three seasons at Florida State, mentoring many of the best pitchers in the ACC.Belanger, 35, has been a full-time assistant coach for 13 seasons, with stops at Monmouth (2010-12), Maryland (2013-16), Kentucky (2017-19) and Florida State (2020-22).The 2022 Seminoles totaled 702 strikeouts in 534.0 innings pitched, good for a national-best 11.8 strikeouts-per-n...

CLEMSON, S.C. – Head Coach Erik Bakich announced on June 28, 2022 that Jimmy Belanger joined the staff as assistant coach and pitching coach. Belanger spent the last three seasons at Florida State, mentoring many of the best pitchers in the ACC.

Belanger, 35, has been a full-time assistant coach for 13 seasons, with stops at Monmouth (2010-12), Maryland (2013-16), Kentucky (2017-19) and Florida State (2020-22).

The 2022 Seminoles totaled 702 strikeouts in 534.0 innings pitched, good for a national-best 11.8 strikeouts-per-nine-innings-pitched mark. Their 3.34 strikeout-to-walk ratio (No. 4) and 702 strikeouts (No. 2) were among the top-four marks in the country as well.

In 2021, Florida State was also among the national leaders in strikeouts per nine innings pitched (11.4), strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.19) and ERA (3.45), as all three marks led the ACC. Freshman Parker Messick earned ACC Pitcher-of-the-Year and ACC Freshman-of-the-Year honors.

Belanger’s 2019 staff at Kentucky featured Zack Thompson, the highest-drafted pitcher in school history when he was selected No. 19 overall in the first round by the Cardinals. In 2017, Kentucky set school records for strikeouts and opponents’ batting average, as Sean Hjelle was named SEC Pitcher-of-the-Year that season. His 2017 staff included two All-Americans, one freshman All-American, two First-Team All-SEC selections and four pitchers drafted in the top-11 rounds.

As pitching coach at Maryland, he helped the Terrapins reach a super regional in 2014 and 2015, the only two super regional appearances in school history. In 2015, his pitchers totaled 549 strikeouts, leading to 42 wins. In 2014, Maryland reached 40 wins for the first time thanks in large part to All-ACC pitcher Jake Stinnett, who led the conference with 132 strikeouts.

In three seasons at Monmouth, Belanger worked with Pat Light, a first-round draft pick in 2012. He also mentored Nick Meyers, who was the 2011 NEC Pitcher-of-the-Year. He began his coaching career as a student assistant coach at Louisville in 2009, when the Cardinals advanced to a super regional.

“Jimmy’s pitchers at Maryland, Kentucky and Florida State were ultra-competitive, and he will bring that same level of competitiveness to Clemson,” said Bakich. “His most recent staffs at Florida State put up record-setting numbers with the likes of ACC Pitcher-of-the-Year Parker Messick. I’m very excited for Jimmy to get started with our talented pitchers.”

Belanger played two seasons (2005,06) at Cecil (Md.) College before transferring to Louisville to play in 2007 and 2008. As a Cardinal, he pitched 98.2 innings over 33 appearances (17 starts). In 2007, Louisville reached the College World Series for the first time in school history.

Belanger graduated from Louisville in 2009 with a degree in sociology.

He was born James Michael Belanger on Sept. 23, 1986 in Queens, N.Y. The North Babylon, N.Y. native and his wife, Tiffany, have a son, Sutton, and daughter, Sloane.
