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.

Electrical Services Peachtree City, GA

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

South Alabama opened the day with an impressive 4-1 win over No. 4-seed Coastal Carolina, before UTA topped No. 2-seed Georgia State 4-2 in a match that lasted just under four hours.

The championship match will get underway on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET, and air live on ESPN+.

Top seed and co-regular season champion South Alabama advanced to the championship match of the Sun Belt Conference Tennis Tournament for a second-straight year with a 4-1 win over No. 4-seed Coastal Carolina on Saturday morning at the Peachtree City (Ga.) Tennis Center.

South Alabama improved to 21-4, while Coastal Carolina fell to 13-9.

The Jaguars took the doubles point thanks to wins from All-Sun Belt Second Team duo Nikola Kohoutova and Luminita Tutunaru, along with Milka Emilia Pasanen and Otoha Aoki.

Nikola Kohoutova, the Sun Belt Player of the Year, gave the Jaguars a 2-0 lead on the Chanticleers with a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Mathilde Tranberg. Minutes later, the Jaguars went ahead 3-0 following a win at No. 5 singles by Otoha Aoki over Megan Hopton.

Shortly before America entered World War II in December 1941, top officials in Berlin and Tokyo scoffed at reports of what American factories could turn out if they switched to war production.

Germany and Japan eventually learned a painful lesson: Do not underestimate what Americans will do if freedom is at stake.

Be in the know the moment news happens

According to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Adolf Hitler himself predicted that American war supplies would not be enough to help the Allies win the war. Hitler said that “an American intervention by mass deliveries of planes and war materials will not change the outcome of the war.” He couldn’t have been more wrong.

The amazing story of our nation’s World War II production is the subject of a multi-media “Lunch & Learn” presentation at the Newnan Carnegie Library this Friday at noon, May 13. The speaker, Willard Womack of the Georgia Commemorative Air Force in Peachtree City, knows the subject well. As he will explain, we earned the description, “arsenal of democracy,” for indisputably good reasons.

William S. Knudsen was an automotive industry executive and a decorated General in the U.S. Army during the war. “We won,” said General Knudsen, “because we smothered the enemy in an avalanche of production, the like of which he had never seen, nor dreamed possible.”

After the Battle of Midway in June 1942, Japan produced just six aircraft carriers. America manufactured no less than seventeen.

The Ken Burns documentary titled “The War” reveals that “America launched more vessels in 1941 than Japan did in the entire war. Shipyards turned out tonnage so fast that by the autumn of 1943 all Allied shipping sunk since 1939 had been replaced. In 1944 alone, the United States built more planes than the Japanese did from 1939 to 1945. By the end of the war, more than half of all industrial production in the world would take place in the United States.”

The American government may have paid for it, but it was American industry that produced it. Private businesses provided almost two-thirds of all the Allied military equipment produced in the war years: 297,000 aircraft, 193,000 artillery pieces, 86,000 tanks and two million army trucks. “In four years,” notes the Burns documentary, “American industrial production, already the world's largest, doubled in size.”

And while those private businesses earned a profit for their efforts, they and millions of private citizens also paid the high taxes and bought the government bonds that made it possible for the government to pay for all this production. If instead of buying the stuff from competitive private enterprises, we had purchased planes and tanks from government factories, we would have paid twice the price for half the quality.

When American enterprise is turned loose to produce, it does so at a staggering magnitude that still makes us the envy of the world.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear about America’s remarkable World War II production when Willard Womack speaks at the library on Friday, May 13. The event is free and you can register via EventBrite on the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation’s website, or via this link: https://tinyurl.com/2t9pjp58.

Speech and Debate Council claims five individual championships, second place nationally for MSU

STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State’s Speech and Debate Council members have claimed five individual national titles from the recent International Public Debate Association National Championship in Abilene, Texas, and placed second nationally out of more than 100 teams, the highest finish in the program’s history.

In IPDA competition, debaters receive awards both for their performance at the championship tournament and for overall season-long performance. For the season, seven MSU debaters finished ranked in the top ten nationally of their respective events, including five season-long national championships.

This marks the third consecutive year that MSU’s Mia Robertson of Starkville has been named a season-long national champion, claiming the Varsity division title. Her past achievements include capturing the Junior Varsity division in 2020 and the Varsity division in 2021.

Lindsay Culpepper, a sophomore wildlife, fisheries and aquaculture major from Pelham, Alabama, claimed the season-long Novice National Champion title, while Robertson and Tyler Melvin, a senior history major from Savannah, Georgia, were named Team National Champions.

In addition, IPDA awards national championships for the top speaker in each debate event. Robertson won both the Varsity and Team Debate top speaker award, marking the first time in history any debater in the nation has swept all four national championship awards for which they are potentially eligible.

“I couldn’t be prouder of what the MSU Speech and Debate Council has built this year,” said Robertson, a political science major. “Our membership has exploded and our visibility on campus has never been greater. This season has proven to be our most successful season ever, and I believe we are on track to secure even more championships next year.”

In addition to its national champions, MSU’s team displayed impressive depth, with its squads in every division placing in the top five nationally. MSU earned first place for the season in the Varsity squad division; second place in the Novice squad division; and fourth place in the Junior Varsity, Professional, and Team divisions.

For the National Championship tournament itself, eight MSU debaters advanced to the elimination rounds. Melvin and Robertson finished second in Team Debate, while Melvin was a semifinalist in the Professional division. Robertson and freshman Hannah Daniels, a business management and Spanish double major from Starkville, were quarterfinalists. Five other debaters made the Top 16. Overall, the team took second place at the National Championships, the highest finish in program history.

“Their coach Brett Harvey and I are extremely proud of the efforts of the students this year,” said Cheryl Chambers, council advisor and an instructor in MSU’s Department of Communication. “We went back and forth between online and in-person tournaments, which can be very stressful. The students put in so much extra time and energy beyond their studies to excel in this activity, yet they maintained the most mature and optimistic attitudes. We are fortunate to have such an excellent group of intelligent, dedicated and supportive young people.”

In addition to Robertson, Culpepper, Melvin and Daniels, additional students representing MSU in the IPDA National Championship (by hometown) include:

CANTON, Georgia—Patrick McKenzie, a sophomore business economics/international business and foreign language/Asian Studies-Japanese double-major

CHELSEA, Alabama—Tanner Marlow, a sophomore agronomy major

COLLIERVILLE, Tennessee—Nirmal Bhatt, a senior mechanical engineering major

GREENWOOD—Luke Chaney, a sophomore political science major

HERNANDO—Devin Hutchins, a freshman economics and philosophy double-major

KATHMANDU, Nepal—Anamica Kadgi, a freshman biomedical engineering and political science double-major

LOUISVILLE—Maggie Phillips, a sophomore biomedical engineering major

MADISON—Madison Biggerstaff, a freshman business administration major

PEACHTREE CITY, Georgia—Amanda Kronenberger, a senior political science major

RAYMOND—Marcus Williams, a senior art major

VICKSBURG—Ryan Jarratt, a senior political science and philosophy double-major

Speech and Debate Council membership is open to all MSU students and prior experience is not required. Members are expected to participate in regular practices and service projects and may elect to compete in individual speaking events, debating events or both.

Support for the Speech and Debate Council is provided by the College of Arts and Sciences, Office of the President, Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President, Department of Communication, James Worth Bagley College of Engineering, and Judy and Bobby Shackouls Honors College, among others.

Funding for team activities also is provided through the generosity of Drs. Deborah and Philip Rabinowitz, who established the Deborah and Philip Rabinowitz Speech and Debate Council Endowment at MSU. Debbie Rabinowitz, a 1969 communication bachelor’s graduate, joined the MSU Debate Team—now the MSU Speech and Debate Council—as a freshman.
