Your Residential Electrician

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 Madison to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

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.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

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 Madison.

Tips to Save Money and Maintain Your Home’s Electrical Systems

Unlike some of our competitors, who are reluctant to provide any information that might prevent them from making a buck, L&M Electric is all about empowering our customers. 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.


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.

Examine Your Breaker Panel

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

Test Your GFIs

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

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


he electrical system in your home brings it to life from the lights and appliances we use every day to the entertainment we all love and enjoy. You want an electrician that makes you feel safe while delivering the quality services you’re promised.

Huntsville’s hottest pizza joint isn’t actually in Huntsville

Sometimes food tastes a little better if it’s not easy. If the restaurant’s small, awkwardly laid out and located somewhere uncool that’s kind of a pain to get to. Of course, the food actually has to be pretty good too.

All of this applies to Valentina’s Pizzeria & Wine Bar. Located out in Madison, amid a soulless terrain of fields, McMansions and chain franchises, Valentina’s has become the Huntsville-area’s most buzzed-about pizza joint, thanks to the handcrafted appeal of their tasty pies. Even more impressive: They’ve managed this while launching during the thick of the pandemic in 2020.

Owner Joe Carlucci is no rookie though. Born in Italy, he’s been in the pizza game for at least 25 years, going back to his roots in New York and Connecticut. In Madison, he earned a following at the well-regarded and now-defunct Famous Joe’s Pizzeria. And yes, Carlucci is legitimately “pizza famous.” In 2006, he notched a Guinness Book of World Records honor for highest pizza toss with a 21-foot-5-inch fling. At Naples, Italy’s World Pizza Making Championship he was once crowned fastest-pizza-maker, after manifesting five pizzas in 31 seconds.


On my recent Saturday night visit out to Valentina’s, there was Carlucci. Behind the counter of the restaurant’s semi-open kitchen, turning dough blobs into aerodynamic shield-sized discs. He’d throw the dough over his head. Spin it on his finger like a basketball. Watching him do this was a good enough way to pass time waiting for my food I barely glanced at my smartphone.

Valentina’s dining room is cozy and lit in mellow-yellow. Sinatra’s velvet croon on the sound system. Ten or so tables. The place was packed so they sat me at the bar, where I asked the bartender for his go-to’s among the dozen or so signature pizzas on the menu. Of the three or so he suggested, I went with The Godfather ($22), a “nice to meat you” type pie with red sauce, mozzarella, soppressata (an Italian salami), sweet Italian sausage, charred pepperoni, seasoned bacon and house-made meatballs.

My pie was out about 20 or so minutes later. It was the real deal. The crust was chewy here, crispy there and crunchy along the edges. Nice. The sauce, tangy. As advertised, The Godfather is very meat forward yet avoided being a Sarlacc-pit of grease. Wide slices, thick cuts, rustic sapors. A hearty and satisfying eat for two people, or a bonus to-go meal for yours truly. At home I mostly eat vegan, so this was like a pizza version of John Lennon’s Lost Weekend for me.

Valentina’s pizzas are 14-inch, standard equipped with New York style crust. Usually there are a couple options for thicker style crusts, including Sicilian and spongy Detroit-style, but tonight they were out of those. Several weeks earlier on a Friday afternoon, my first trip to try Valentina’s, I was told they were completely out of dough, and it would be 20 minutes or so wait until the cook was back and ready to make pizzas. Not the news I wanted to hear after a 30-minute drive out to Madison from Five Points in Huntsville. No notice on their socials either. If Valentina’s pizza didn’t have the rep it does, I probably wouldn’t have come back. But amid the pandemic’s supply chain and staffing issues, dining-out is more of a wild animal than it used to be. It’s just the way it is now. That said, on my more recent Saturday visit, the service was thoughtful and smooth. It was easy to have a good time and be comfortable.

Next time out to Valentina’s, I’d probably give another of the bartender’s pizza suggestions a go, The Valentina ($23): Cacciatore sauce, caramelized onions, peppadew peppers, seasoned bacon, chorizo and heirloom cherry tomatoes. Topped with fresh basil and drizzled with reduced balsamic glaze, the latter of which I’m told adds a compelling brightness. There are some vegetarian options too, including a margherita ($21) and the mushroom-positive Jazzy Jess ($26), with roasted portobello, porcini and morels. In addition to their signature pizzas, Valentina’s gives you the option to build your own. That starts at $14 for a cheese pizza, with $2 toppings and $3 premium toppings.

The menu also gets into salads, including a Browns Ferry Salad ($10) with baby romaine, seasoned bacon, roasted walnuts, pears, heirloom cherry tomatoes, gorgonzola and a pear vinaigrette dressing. They also have calzones (starting at $11) and apps including a bruschetta ($7). The desserts include cannoli ($6), tiramisu ($8), etc. Wines include varietals from Alexander Valley, Fowles, Wente and Frescobaldi. They have craft beers too.

A row of kitchen photos dot one of the dining room’s caramel-colored walls. These include an image of Carlucci’s young daughter Valentina, for whom the restaurant is named, applying sauce to a pizza. Behind the bar, framed pics of Carlucci with celebs ranging from Martha Stewart to 50 Cent. A couple of TVs mounted overhead. It was a chilly night or I’d been out on the patio, which is dappled with string-lights and a mural depicting a curious menagerie of Nick Saban, Anthony Bourdain, Rosa Parks and Charles Barkley.

Even though Valentina’s lies in the shadow of a Chevron gas station, they’ve conjured some vibe. They’re located in what might be best described as a micro strip-mall, alongside a subs place and smoothie shop. Did I enjoy the drive out to Madison? Does anyone enjoy the drive out to Madison? But after my pizza at Valentina’s, I did kind of enjoy the drive back home.

Valentina’s Pizzeria & Wine Bar is at 25951 Huntsville Brownsferry Road in Madison. They’re open 4 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 12 – 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. More info at

Fyffe 34, Walter Wellborn 0

Class 3A, No. 2 Fyffe launched its quest for a fourth consecutive state championship by dominating Walter Wellborn 34-0.

The Red Devils (9-1) won their 54th consecutive home game and 16th straight state playoff game by relying on their punishing ground game and a bruising defense.

Fyffe rolled up 24 first downs and 362 yards rushing. The Red Devils didn’t attempt a pass.

Freshman running back Logan Anderson paced Fyffe with 11 carries for 144 yards. Senior quarterback Kyle Dukes gained 90 yards on 20 attempts, and junior running back Brodie Hicks ran 10 times for 59 yards.

Fyffe’s defense limited Walter Wellborn (5-5) to five first downs and 92 total yards. It was the Red Devils’ fifth shutout during their current playoff streak.

The Red Devils scored on their first three possessions of the opening half.

Fyffe moved 55 yards on its initial drive, with Hicks scoring on a 1-yard run with 5:16 left in the first quarter. Fyffe missed the extra point.

Hunter Machen’s interception put the Red Devils’ offense in business at their 36-yard line with 3:40 remaining. Anderson broke free for a 45-yard gain to Wellborn’s 12, and he capped the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run with 1:11 on the clock.

Anderson added a two-point conversion, stretching Fyffe’s margin to 14-0.

On the next series, Wellborn failed to convert a fourth-and-4 from the Fyffe 45, as Anderson and Hicks broke up a deep pass.

The Red Devils took over and marched 55 yards, with Anderson picking up 32 of them on a big run to Wellborn’s 20. Dukes exhibited terrific second effort on a 4-yard touchdown run, as he dived across the goal line with 4:56 to go in the second quarter. Anderson’s two-point run made it 22-0.

Fyffe opened the second half with an 11-play, 73-yard drive that consumed 6:37. Dukes’ 1-yard scoring run put Fyffe in front 28-0 with 5:23 remaining. The Red Devils missed the extra point.

Fyffe’s defense forced a three-and-out, and Will Stephens returned the punt 10 yards to his 37.

Stephens ripped off a 21-yard gain during the drive, which he finished with a 1-yard scoring run on the first snap of the fourth period. The Red Devils missed the extra point again.

Bob Jones Patriot Players take ‘Eurydice’ to state drama festival

MADISON – After winning kudos at district level, Bob Jones Patriot Players are taking their one-act play, “Eurydice,” to the state-level Walter Trumbauer High School Theatre Festival at Troy University on Dec. 3-4.

Along with advancing to state competition, Bob Jones earned important awards, including “Best in Show,” “Best Technical Production,” “Best Ensemble Performance” and Morgan Butler as “Best Actress.” State-level winners will represent Alabama at Southeastern Theatre Conference in 2022.

Cast and crew encourage residents to attend the benefit show of “Eurydice” on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. in Bob Jones’ Zompa Auditorium. “We really want people to come to our benefit show on the 30th,” Director Mary Davis said. “The show will help to offset the cost of the state trip.”

The audience can buy tickets at the door. The ticket table will open at 6 p.m., and the house will open at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 30. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students.

A one-act version of the full-length play, “Eurydice” by Sarah Ruhl is a contemporary interpretation of the Greek myth of Eurydice and Orpheus. The classical play inspired Broadway’s Tony winner, “Hadestown.”

To satisfy Trumbauer rules, students must load all sets and props on stage, perform and ‘break down’ in 45 minutes. “If we go over 45 minutes, we’re disqualified,” Davis said.

Drama teacher Jesse Tilton, Technical Director who’s formerly of Mountain Brook, selected “Eurydice” to challenge student technicians with the most demanding production technically in the last 10 years. “The set is truly an artistic masterpiece. What Mr. Tilton has taught students is just incredible. We’re blessed to have him as our newest Patriot Player Director,” Davis said.

“I agreed with Mr. Tilton’s play suggestion because the show depends largely on great ensemble work – the acting style that I’ve always loved directing,” Davis said.

Set in the 1940s, the story focuses on Eurydice’s choice to either return to earth with Orpheus or to stay in the underworld with her father. This show calls for four leading actors: Morgan Butler (Eurydice), Ryland Segerson (Father), Nate Bryan (Interesting Man) and Steven Rogers (Orpheus).

Davis fashioned characters to include all students:

* Ensemble or “Greek Chorus” – Four each for Little Stones, Big Stones and Loud Stones.

* “Machine” – Six actors decked out in steampunk garb that deliver Eurydice’s letters to Orpheus.

* “Forget Me Notes” — Five-piece band that underscores dialogue.

Costume designer Shari Kingsford and student costumers dressed 12 stones, six steampunk machines, five-member 1940s nightclub band and lead actors.

The crew includes Student Director Samantha Bignault and Student Tech Directors Anjalee Crawford and Mitchell Czarnota. Musicians on strings/rhythm are Rett Krome, Sabrina Glover, Noah Neveu, Jenna Velez and Peyton Worden.
