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 Peachtree City 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 Peachtree City.

 Smart Home Installation Peachtree City, GA

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Peachtree City, 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

Today’s Final Jeopardy question (3/9/2023) in the category “Landmarks” was:

After its completion in the late 19th c., it was called a “truly tragic street lamp” & a “high & skinny pyramid of iron ladders”

In the last final match of the High School Reunion tournament. The opponents are: Jackson Jones, a junior at Vanderbilt University from Louisville, KY, Maya Wright, a senior at Emory University from Peachtree City, GA; and Justin Bolsen, a first-year student at Brown University from Canton, GA.

These scores from yesterday will be added to today’s final scores to determine the winner: Jackson: $3,370; Maya: $24,000; Justin: $13,570

Round 1 Categories: College Sports Stuff – The Long-Ago 20th Century – Can We “Dis”cuss? – A Business, Major – One-Syllable Body Parts – Let’s Get Dirty

Jackson found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “One Syllable Body Parts” under the $1,000 clue on the 4th pick of the round. He was in the lead with $1,600, $600 more than Justin in second place. Jackson made it a true Daily Double, and said the liver. That was WRONG.

Jackson finished in the lead with $3,600. Justin was second with $3,000. Maya was last with $2,400. All clues were shown.

Round 2 Categories: First Words – 4-Letter Geography – There’s a Name in the Title – Inside Ballet & Opera – You, Robot – Take Me to Your Leader

Maya found the first Daily Double in “Take Me To Your Leader” under the $1,200 clue on the 12th pick of the round. She was in last place with $4,000, $3,200 less than Jackson’s lead. Maya bet $3,000 and she was RIGHT.

Jackson got the last Daily Double in “Inside Ballet & Opera” under the $1,600 clue on the 20th pick of the round. In last place with $7,200, he had $4,600 less than Maya’s lead. Jackson bet $3,200 and drew a blank so he was WRONG.

Maya finished in the lead with $14,200. Justin was second with $11,000 and Jackson was last with $5,600. All clues were shown.

ALL of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.


In 1887, not long after construction of the Eiffel Tower began, many prominent figures from the arts publicly protested against it on the grounds that it would destroy “the beauty of Paris that was until now intact.” The particular insults in today’s clue were the contributions of writers Guy de Maupassant (“this high and skinny pyramid of iron ladders, this giant ungainly skeleton”) and Léon Bloy (“this truly tragic street lamp”). You can read Gustave Eiffel’s response on the Eiffel Tower’s website in an article by Bertrand Lemoine.

From 8 things you might not know about the Eiffel Tower: “Critics were somewhat silenced by the tower’s immense popular success: at the Universal Exposition, it sold no fewer than two million admissions!”

Jackson bet $5,598 and finished with $11,198 today. Adding $24,000 to that made his final score $35,198.

Justin bet $10,991 and finished with $21,991. Adding $13,570 to that made his final score $35,561.

Maya bet $7,040 and finished with $21,240. Adding $3,370 brought her up to $24,610, and that made Justin Bolsen the $100,000 winner of the 2023 High School Reunion Tournament. We will also see him again in the next Tournament of Champions. Jackson won $50,000 and Maya won $25,000.

A triple stumper from each round:

Sharing memories of Peachtree City’s early days

The previous column entitled “The developer who created today’s Peachtree City — and gets little credit for it” got quite a bit of attention last week.

History is a fascinating look at people, actions, decisions, interactions, and behaviors. History’s cousin, legacy, is also a depiction of specific people and events.

Of course, as Winston Churchill made clear, the historical narrative is largely dependent upon who is writing it. History and legacy can be perilous preoccupations, indeed. Peachtree City’s history is no different.

The overwhelming majority of residents in Peachtree City (perhaps 99.99%) would have never known about the city’s founder Pete Knox, Jr. had I not started writing about him in The Citizen back in 2009. I stumbled upon Knox while doing some research as mayor.

Local schoolchildren were writing errant papers on the city’s history. A local amateur historian had been promoting a revisionist history for years, and everyone went for it. There were no “official” accounts.

Joel Cowan referred to my lifting the historical curtain away from Knox in 2009 as an “incendiary editorial.” Fortunately, my writings brought Knox some attention and he ended up getting at least a mention in a history booklet released by the city’s library.

There has been a great deal of legacy confusion in Peachtree City. Somehow the founder’s employee, Joel Cowan, was cited as the founder everywhere I looked, especially in bios of Cowan on the sites of various organizations he was involved in.

I was deeply saddened that Cowan himself never lifted Knox and the other investing founders up in the public forum, the people who gave him the opportunity to be part of the city’s great story. To me, it showed a great deal of disrespect.

Like Knox, the other man who was tossed out of the historical narrative was Peachtree City Development Corporation’s (PCDC) Doug Mitchell.

Back in the 1800s, Fayette County was a huge land mass. The land was eventually divided into current Fayette, DeKalb, Spalding, Clayton, and what is now South Fulton (formerly called Campbell). All of those counties had the same chance at success, but one ranks much higher on the quality of life metrics by far: Fayette County. The difference is Peachtree City and Mitchell made the difference.

Had it not been for Pete Knox, Jr.’s crazy idea of starting a city from scratch (in a county that resented the new city) and Doug Mitchell forming the right organization with the right people to propel the vision to unprecedented heights, there would be no Peachtree City or Fayette County as it is today.

It’s important to give people their due. You don’t have to like them but at least acknowledge their accomplishments. This is a good lesson for our children, especially in our culturally divided society.

I thought it apropos to list some of the comments from social media about the column on Doug Mitchell and the city’s history.

Michael Witt commented that he grew up in Annapolis Maryland in the late 70s-early/mid-80s. Mitchell and his stepfather (president of a large civil engineering company outside DC) went to many conventions together. Witt’s mom and Mitchell’s wife became best friends.

“I can recall as a kid in Maryland hearing about Peachtree City! Doug was very proud of what he had done/was doing,” Witt said. “Ironically, through a million twists and turns, I (along with my two sisters) now call Peachtree City home. I don’t recall Doug being an especially likable guy, but you have to give him some credit regarding his job.”

Former Fayette County Commissioner Peter Pfeifer said, “Doug and PCDC were certainly not perfect but are really most responsible for what was created.”

It’s a theme with Mitchell, the haughtiness, but the execution was impressive.

L. Gibbs worked in a local dentist’s office where Mitchell was a patient. She said Mitchell had some anxiety regarding dental procedures. Gibbs successfully worked to make him more comfortable.

“Ironically, he never once shared the details on his work with PCDC or his role in the development of PTC,” Gibbs explained. “He came across as a sweet family man who was very proud of his children.”

So appreciative was Mitchell of Gibbs’ compassion that he allowed Gibbs and her husband to stay at his log home retreat in Montana. “It was such a gracious and welcome retreat that he gave us and refused any payment for the stay,” said Gibbs. “Glad to see this article from Steve Brown because the city of PTC definitely should recognize him for his skills at bringing PTC to where it is today.”

Perhaps one day there will be an official recognition of Knox and Mitchell. You never know.

Michael Jerrell reminded me not to leave out Steve Black. Black, now president of Pathway (formerly PCDC), was also a force at PCDC. Black has overseen much of the Pathway development outside of Fayette County, including Summer Grove and Avery Park in Coweta County, Monarch Village in Henry County, and Lake Forest in Forsyth County.

Resident reader Tom Walsh rightly pointed out that I never told the readers how the alcohol rehab program worked out for Pete Knox, Jr. Knox cleaned himself up and lived a sober life until his death in 1993.

As no parent should ever have to experience, Knox had the unfortunate circumstance of living with a daughter and a son dying from cancer.

During Knox’s drinking days, he bought a lumber mill on a whim. It was a disastrous move and could have ruined the family. The sons Pete III and Boone had to waste a great deal of their young adulthood working countless hours to save the project for their father.

Pete III became a national figure in real estate investment trusts while Boone became a prominent figure in Georgia banking.

Steve Goins said he was in high school locally in 1979. He said in addition to the Big Star as indicated in the column there was also the A&T grocery store located in the Aberdeen Village Center. “Of course, the one constant in most of the history of PTC is going to be Jim Royal and Partners II Pizza,” Goins said.

Many readers have commented on moving to Peachtree City in the 1970s and remembering the horse stables and pastures. You might have wondered where the street names “Bridlepath Lane” and “Clydesdale Road” came from.

The equestrian theme for the city did not survive, and the site was converted to what is now the Glenloch Recreation Center and soccer fields.

If you are a Peachtree City long-timer, let us know your thoughts on the city in the 1970s — 1980s in the comment section.

I am working on crafting something on the gregarious Mayor Fred Brown next.

Read the previous history columns in this series with these links:

Part 1 – The founder, the idea, what now?

Part 2 – The land purchase, the hostility, and the first steps

Part 3 – The crash, the change, and the new direction

Part 4 – Worldwide turmoil, Peachtree City in foreclosure, and new ownership

Part 5 – The developer did it but got no credit

[Brown is a former mayor of Peachtree City and served two terms on the Fayette County Board of Commissioners. You can read all his columns by clicking on his photo below.]

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. - The 14-year-old girl accused of setting a fire which gutted the Peachtree City Walmart in August was sentenced on Friday in juvenile court

The teen, whose name was not released, took responsibility for her actions and was sentenced. The teen admitted to sparking the fire in the paper goods aisle. It happened shortly before 7:20 p.m. on Aug. 24 at the Walmart located on 2717 Georgia Highway 54.

Firefighters said the sprinklers were quickly overwhelmed. The flames at one point were licking the roof, making the structure unstable.

Three officers, who charged into the store to ensure everyone was out safely, had to be rushed to the hospital after being overcome by smoke. No other injuries were reported.

It took the combined efforts of the Peachtree City, Coweta County, Fayetteville, and Fayette County fire departments to eventually get the blaze under control. That happened around 4 a.m. the next morning.

There was significant damage caused to the interior and roof. One estimate puts the damage at more than $30 million and could top $40 million after restoration efforts are complete.

Unfortunately, those efforts won’t be complete in time for the holidays, Walmart says. In fact, the store will likely not reopen until after the first of the year. Customers have been asked to drive to the stores in neighboring Newnan and Fayetteville.

Walmart did open a mobile pharmacy in the parking lot to help locals get their prescriptions easier, but it is closed nights and weekends.

Employees have been temporarily transferred to other stores and the Peachtree City Walmart will be accepting applications soon in preparation for the store’s grand reopening. That exact date has not yet been set.

As for what sentence the teen faces, those court records are confidential, so the sentence will not be disclosed.

Police say there is no evidence to support the rumor the fire was set as part of a TikTok challenge. Investigators believe the setting of the fire was a simple impulse action.
