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 Pickens 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 Pickens.

 Smart Home Installation Pickens, 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 Pickens, 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 Pickens, SC, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Pickens, 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

PICKENS COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A small dog in Pickens County is recovering after it was attacked along Pumpkintown Highway. The dog’s owner says it was the scariest thing she witnessed her miniature schnauzer, whom she named Snuggie, endured.

It happened Monday night, Allyson Mauney says she went out to walk her dogs before going to work.

She also has a Labrador mix named Gracie.

Mauney says the dogs ran into the woods barking, “there was a scuffle that I heard in the leaves, and I continued to hear the scuffle. Then, I heard my schnauzer yelping.” She ran to her car the grab a flashlight. Once she got back, she saw a small bear.

“I saw a bear on top of my schnauzer,” Mauney said. “My lab ran out to protect me.”

The frantic pet owner tried to intervene but the closer she got, the bear lunged at her. Twice.

“I just stood there because I wasn’t going to leave my dog. I call him my son, they’re my children,” she explained. “I could feel its breath.”

Mauney was screaming the entire time “to the top fo my lungs.”

A friend tried to help rescue Snuggie, but the bear had taken him further into the woods. So, they decided to not investigate too much because it was dark and they weren’t sure how many bears were present.

However, the next morning, the Schnauzer was found alive.

“He was lying in a little patch of mud,” said Paul Chambers. “When he heard me coming and I started to talk, he lifted his head and that just blew me away.”

“Black bears are emerging from their dens and they’re coming out; and they’re very hungry, obviously. They haven’t eaten most of the winter,” said Greg Lucas from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

April and May are prime bear sighting months, especially in areas close to the mountains. Greenville, Pickens, and Oconee Counties are the more common places for the furry animal.

But surrounding counties shouldn’t let their guards down.

“We’re getting reports in some of the other Piedmont counties like Spartanburg, Anderson,” Lucas said.

During the interview with DNR, we learned that black bears are mostly calm in nature, shy, and can get along with human very well. As long as they’re not provoked.

If you do see a bear, you can report it to DNR. For black bear emergencies, please call 1-800-922-5431 or 911.

Mauney and Chambers both have a strong appreciation for nature. They’ve seen bears on the property before and have never felt threatened.

The pet mom fears this attack was caused by her dog.

“The bear, I feel sure, was probably bitten by my dog first,” she said.

Interactions the dogs and bears had last year is what caused her to wonder if something serious would ever happen.

“My dogs would chase it into the woods everyday; and I kept saying, one day they’re going to realize they’re bigger than you,” Mauney remembered.

She says Snuggie is paralyzed in his rear legs.

Safety tips from SC DNR

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) wants to remind South Carolinians to secure food attractants such as garbage, bird feeders, and pet food to prevent bears from stopping by. The most common human-bear conflicts involve unsecured food attractants.

The mere presence of a black bear does not necessarily represent a problem. Most bears are just passing through, but if there is an easy meal to be found, they will take advantage of it.

The key to dealing with wandering bears is not giving them a reason to hang around. Removing any food source that would attract bears will significantly reduce any bear issues in residential areas.

SCDNR offers these suggestions to better coexist with bears:

If you are camping in bear territory, follow these guidelines:

The last thing Allyson Mauney saw was a bear pick up Snuggie, her miniature schnauzer, by the neck and drag him into the woods.

It happened Monday night in Pickens County as she let Snuggie and Gracie, a lab mix, out before she went to work third shift at the U.S. Postal Service in Greenville.

She had seen the fur stand up on their backs as they ran out and charged a deer feeder, where in previous years bears would come to feed on corn.

She got a flashlight and ran toward the woods. She hoped the dogs would see the light and run back. She heard rustling in the leaves. Snuggie yelped, then screamed.

Mauney ran down the hill and saw a small bear holding Snuggie by the back of the neck. Mauney screamed. Loudly. The bear shook Snuggie violently.

Thoughts whirled through her head. Is it a baby? Is the mother around? How can she get to the dog she considers her son?

As she moved closer, the bear charged her.

“I wasn’t moving,” she said. “I wasn’t backing up. I was not leaving my son.”

The bear got so close, she could feel its breath. She prepared for attack. They stared each other down.

Then the bear picked up Snuggie and ran into the woods.

“That feeling was something I can’t describe and something I do not ever want to feel again,” she said.

Her sister’s boyfriend, Paul, convinced her not to go into the woods. There was no telling what or who was in there. She took Benadryl and went to sleep.

She woke Tuesday morning to Paul running into her room.

“He’s alive! He’s alive! I found him! Let’s go!”

He had been searching since sunrise.

They sped off to the vet.

Snuggie has come through the attack, but the vet said his back legs are paralyzed.

“God already worked a miracle and isn’t done,” she said.

Mauney said she hopes the story of Snuggie will be a reminder to people that they live in bear country not the other way around.

“This bear did nothing wrong,” she said. “It was protecting itself and the last thing in the world I want is for people to take any negative action towards any wildlife.”

Bears are leaving hibernation and roaming all over South Carolina, including one seen recently in Laurens.

Last year, Snuggie repeatedly chased a young bear.

She told Snuggie. “One day they are going to realize that they are bigger than you and that’s gonna be a bad day.”

Bill to ban paying SC workers with disabilities less than minimum wage moves closer to becoming law

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) -A law that allows employers to pay people with disabilities less than the federal minimum wage could soon be taken off the books in South Carolina.Legislation to abolish the subminimum wage has now passed both chambers of the State House, though changes made to it last week in the House of Representatives have put the bill back in the Senate’s hands with three days left in the regular legislative sessio...

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) -A law that allows employers to pay people with disabilities less than the federal minimum wage could soon be taken off the books in South Carolina.

Legislation to abolish the subminimum wage has now passed both chambers of the State House, though changes made to it last week in the House of Representatives have put the bill back in the Senate’s hands with three days left in the regular legislative session.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, nearly 3,000 people with disabilities in South Carolina were being paid less than the minimum wage just before the pandemic began.

That number has since dropped to nearly 1,000 people, according to the department, but advocates hope it could soon be zero.

“As one of the largest minority groups in the whole entire country, we should no longer see people with disabilities as less than. We are citizens just like everybody else, and we deserve to be paid equally among our peers without disabilities,” Able SC President and CEO Kimberly Tissot said.

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, employers with a U.S. Department of Labor-approved waiver can legally pay less than the federal minimum wage — currently $7.25 an hour — to workers with disabilities, defined as those “whose earning or productive capacity is impaired by age, physical or mental deficiency, or injury.”

Currently 14 employers across South Carolina hold that certificate. Most of those are organizations that work to help people with disabilities gain employment skills and jobs, and some have said this practice allows them to employ people with severe disabilities who may not be able to competitively work otherwise.

“They’re still going to have to get somebody to do that job,” Sen. Katrina Shealy, R – Lexington and the bill’s primary sponsor, said. “So are they going to get somebody without a disability to work for 25 cents an hour?”

Shealy said people with disabilities should not be treated any differently than other workers.

“As long as they can do the same job, they should make the same pay, and I think they’ve been taken advantage of,” she said.

This legislation would create a 13-member task force to develop a plan to phase out the subminimum wage while still ensuring employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

If it becomes law, subminimum wages would no longer be legal by Aug. 1, 2024.

“South Carolina has some lack of services for people with disabilities as well, and so this will give us enough time to plan what’s next, how can we build skills, how can we engage in meaningful activities that really respects the rights of people with disabilities,” Tissot said.

The bill passed the Senate last year, the first year of a two-year legislative session, and passed the House last week with changes to it, adding on the “Employment First Initiative Act,” sponsored by Rep. Neal Collins, R – Pickens.

“It asks employers to look at the disability community when you hire. It’s not a mandate; it’s not saying you have to. It’s just sort of a resolution saying, ‘How about looking at the people with disabilities? Don’t just discard them and say just because you have a disability, you can’t do the job,’” Shealy explained.

Shealy called the amendment “a perfect fit” to add to her bill, saying she will ask her Senate colleagues to concur with that change but request another commission created by that part of the legislation be reduced from 17 members to nine.

House members would then be able to agree with the Senate’s change or opt for a smaller group of members from both chambers to work out a compromise to send to Gov. Henry McMaster.

If this does become law, South Carolina would become the 13th state overall and the third in the southeast to do away with the subminimum wage for people with disabilities.

“This has been a long time coming, and I think this will really change the perceptions that people have about people with disabilities,” Tissot said.

Charleston restaurant owed workers $624K in tips, operated illegal tip pool

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) on Monday announced thousands of dollars in tips recovered for workers at a Downtown Charleston restaurant who had been forced to participate in an illegal tip pool.According to the DOL, management at 167 Raw on King Street “required tipped employees to share tips illegally,” splitting the funds between “management and other typically non-tipped employees.” The restaurant also “failed to pay tipped employees the difference between their di...

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) on Monday announced thousands of dollars in tips recovered for workers at a Downtown Charleston restaurant who had been forced to participate in an illegal tip pool.

According to the DOL, management at 167 Raw on King Street “required tipped employees to share tips illegally,” splitting the funds between “management and other typically non-tipped employees.” The restaurant also “failed to pay tipped employees the difference between their direct wages and the federal minimum wage” and paid less than the federal requirement for overtime rates.

The investigation found 92 workers were shortchanged a total of $624,017 as a result of the illegal financial structure.

Wage and Hour Division District Director, Jamie Benefiel, explained that such violations “are common in the restaurant industry, and they can quickly add up to costly consequences.”

Benefiel went on to say “restaurant industry employers must know and comply with federal requirements to claim the tip credit,” and that “retaining and recruiting workers is more difficult when employers fail to respect workers’ rights and pay them their full wages.”

167 Raw issued the following statement in response:

“In 2021, 167 Raw King Street LLC entered into a voluntary agreement with the U.S. Department ofLabor regarding its tip-pooling procedure. The Department of Labor found the process to be in conflictwith provisions of certain regulations.

A tip pool was established to include and compensate our team members who are integral to a positivedining experience at our restaurant. Before establishing the pool, we sought advice from legal counseland were told that it was legal and appropriate to do so. Months later, however, the Department ofLabor concluded that these procedures were in direct violation of certain federal guidelines. TheDepartment began a full investigation and determined that while we had not intentionally violated anyregulation, we had instead relied upon incorrect legal advice. The full details of this were disclosed toour team members and compensation was handled accordingly. We fully cooperated with theDepartment of Labor to establish new procedures within the Department’s guidelines and took thenecessary steps to correct the misallocation of tips. It is important to note that the owners of 167 RawKing Street LLC never shared in or participated in the former tip pool.

We continue to prioritize our team members and choosing to enter this voluntary agreement with theDepartment last year ensured that our valued team members continue to be well-compensated withinthe framework of evolving federal guidelines.”

Another Gamecock projected as first round pick in 2023 NFL Draft

Another South Carolina player is having his name thrown into the mix for the 2023 NFL Draft.Gamecocks defensive tackle Zacch Pickens was projected as the No. 22 pick to the Cincinnati Bengals in The Athletic’s Dane Brugler’s way-too-early 2023 first round mock draft on Tuesday.“An athletic big man, Pickens isn’t yet a finished product, but you don’t n...

Another South Carolina player is having his name thrown into the mix for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Gamecocks defensive tackle Zacch Pickens was projected as the No. 22 pick to the Cincinnati Bengals in The Athletic’s Dane Brugler’s way-too-early 2023 first round mock draft on Tuesday.

“An athletic big man, Pickens isn’t yet a finished product, but you don’t need to squint to see why NFL scouts are intrigued by his talent,” Brugler wrote. “South Carolina has a solid track record of producing defensive linemen, and Pickens is next up in the hopper.”

Pickens arrived at South Carolina in the class of 2019 as a five-star recruit and the No. 8 player in the class, per 247Sports. He’s since played in all 35 games of his USC career, including 20 starts.

The T.L. Hanna product is expected to anchor the Gamecocks defensive line again in 2022 with defensive ends Kingsley “JJ” Enagbare and Aaron Sterling now off to the NFL. Pickens finished last season with 38 tackles, five tackles for a loss and four sacks.

Pickens is one of four South Carolina players who could theoretically be in the mix for the 2023 first round along with cornerback Cam Smith, tight end/receiver Jaheim Bell and quarterback Spencer Rattler.

Smith (No. 12 overall) and Bell (No. 29 overall) were both listed in Pro Football Focus’ way-too-early first round mock draft on Tuesday, while Rattler is seen as a possible first rounder should he find his 2020 form that made him a Heisman Trophy front-runner at Oklahoma.

South Carolina had just three players taken in the 2022 NFL Draft in Enagbare, running back Kevin Harris and tight end Nick Muse. Defensive lineman Jabari Ellis (New York Giants) and running back ZaQuandre White (Miami Dolphins) both earned undrafted free agent deals.

Kicker Parker White (Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and safety Jaylan Foster (Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars) also received rookie mini-camp invites this week.

South Carolina has produced three first round picks in the last five seasons. Cornerback Jaycee Horn was the most recent when he was selected No. 8 overall by the Carolina Panthers in the 2021 NFL Draft.
