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 Powdersville 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 Powdersville.

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Powdersville, 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

Polls opened at 7 a.m. this morning for primary voting for statewide races, some Anderson County Council districts and several other elected offices.

Check back here for up-to-date results in all the Anderson area elections as the polls close Tuesday night.

Polls had technical issues at a few polling locations throughout the morning, election director Laura Booth said.

"Clerks get very anxious and nervous, letting their nerves get the best of them. When this happens we try to talk them through their issues but we also have polling location technicians we deploy as well," Booth said in an email.

A few poll workers had to move around to fill vacancies. "Overall, we struggle with finding dependable people who will work," she said.

North Pointe Elementary School, which had two precincts in the gym, had a steady stream of voters when polls opened. The Piercetown precinct had nine voters by 7:15 a.m. in a precinct with 2,419 registered voters.

"I always vote, I believe in our democratic process," Kenney said. "I believe in the importance of us having a voice and exercising our constitutional rights."

She said she would like to see a focus on education from new leaders.

Growing up, Layton Barnwell said he heard people say voting doesn't matter, but his family always encouraged him to do his part.

"I'd like to see a lot of younger people get out and actually want to be a part of the political parties and stuff," Barnwell said after casting his vote at the school.

One of two computers was down at the Concrete precinct at Concrete Primary School in Powdersville, a poll worker said, which affected checking in voters but did not interrupt the pace. By noon, 124 voters had cast ballots in an area with 34,027 registered voters.

Ken Smith was standing outside the precinct before heading to Pickens to cast his vote. He’s happy with the local level of leadership, he said, but is looking for change nationally.

“It’s important who’s going to run this country,” Smith said. “This country needs a change.”

Denver Sandy-Springs precinct poll worker Jim Rodriguez said their precinct had some technical issues 10 minutes before 7 a.m. while some voters were lined up. Two poll workers also did not show up, he said, but everyone has been able to vote despite the early challenges. Eight voters had come to cast their ballots at the polling location by 7:55 a.m. Tuesday.

Chapman baseball drops Powdersville, makes SCHSL Class AAA state championship series

INMAN — Chapman came into Wednesday's Class AAA Upper State baseball championship needing to win one game of the double-elimination tournament. After falling to visiting Powdersville in the first matchup, the Panthers bounced back to clinch their spot in the state championship with a 9-2 win."I didn't see any quit in their eyes when they were down 2-0, and then Johann (Rodriguez), who's been huge for us all playoffs long coming through in big situations, did again right there to make it even," said Chapm...

INMAN — Chapman came into Wednesday's Class AAA Upper State baseball championship needing to win one game of the double-elimination tournament. After falling to visiting Powdersville in the first matchup, the Panthers bounced back to clinch their spot in the state championship with a 9-2 win.

"I didn't see any quit in their eyes when they were down 2-0, and then Johann (Rodriguez), who's been huge for us all playoffs long coming through in big situations, did again right there to make it even," said Chapman coach Steven Fusaro. "When Johann and then Hudson (Moss) came through for us, it just ignited a confidence in everybody else on this team."

It didn't always look like the night would have a happy ending for Chapman, which entered 5-0 in the postseason. After a back-and-forth first game that the Patriots won, it looked as if the tournament could go either way. That is until Ricky Montalvo got on the mound for Chapman to start Game 2.

Montalvo, the Panthers' ace who's committed to play at Newberry, was able to hold the Patriots to two earned runs in his complete-game outing. Though Fusaro had hoped to hold Montalvo for the state championship series opener against Oceanside Collegiate on Saturday, falling in the first game forced his hand.

More on Chapman's playoff run:Chapman baseball gets revenge in dominant playoff performance, led by ace Ricky Montalvo

"When you get to this point, you're playing to win a state championship. We knew that we had a great player waiting in the wings if we didn't get that first game," Fusaro said. "And when we didn't, Rick went out there and did what he does. Big Pitch Rick came in and just gave us an absolute gem."

"My goal was to go out there and dominate," Montalvo said. "I knew my defense would make plays, and ... I trust them so much, when I go up there, my mentality is to throw strikes and let my defense work behind me."

Though Montalvo's arm put the Panthers in a good position, the bats of junior catcher Johann Rodriquez and sophomore outfielder Hudson Moss put the game over the top for Chapman.

"When we went down 2-0, I remember the first thought in my head was, 'I'm not going to let this be the last ball game I play with this group of seniors,' who I'm really close with," Rodriquez said. "I'm excited that I was able to come up big for them, excited I was able to come up big in that situation and give us a chance to eventually win the game."

That's exactly what Rodriquez did, when he tied the score at 2 before the ball really started rolling Chapman's way. They took the lead and never looked back after Moss hit a two-RBI double off the top of the fence — barely missing out on a homer — to put the Panthers ahead 4-2.

"I'm just speechless, man," Moss said. "I don't even remember what the at-bat was like. I was so excited to see the ball hit off the fence. I don't remember anything. I'm just so happy for this team."

Chapman will take on Oceanside Collegiate on Saturday at Shipyard Park outside of Charleston in Game 1 of the best-of-three series.

From 1984: Anderson man becomes first blind juror in South Carolina. 'I felt proud.'

Staff Writer in 1984

This story was originally published in September 1984.

Carey D. Burriss Jr., 34, sat in a jury pool in the main courtroom of the Anderson County Courthouse all week in September of 1984.

"When I stood in the front of the courtroom and the (lawyers) had to consider me, I was ready for them to say, 'No,'" he said.

"There was a pause, and I was about ready to raise my cane and tell them I could see with my ears. But when I heard them both say, 'Seat the juror,' it was like a dream had been realized."

Burriss and court officials said they believe he's the first blind person to serve on a jury in state history.

"I felt proud. At that moment, all that work by the federation, all the letters and correspondence with elected officials became worth it," Burriss said.

Legislation removing the jury duty exemption for blind people became state law June 20, 1984.

"It's been a great experience, and I think I may have shown some people what a blind person is capable of doing," Burriss said.

Burriss served on two juries, one for a trial in absence, in which the defendant was not present, and the other for a trial of driving under the influence. The jury returned a guilty verdict in both cases.

Burriss, an employee of the Clemson University horticulture department, is president of the 16-member Anderson chapter of the National Federation of the Blind.

He learned earlier in the week that his selection for jury duty "could result in a first."

"I knew he was the first blind juror we've had in Anderson County, and found out today he was the first in the state," Anderson Clerk of Court Jimmy Burdette said. "From everything I've been told, he did a fine job."

Assistant 10th Circuit Solicitor David Hoffman, who prosecuted one of the cases in which Burriss was a juror, said he "had no qualms about seating him" on the jury.

"There may be some cases in which visual evidence is presented where a blind person might be at a disadvantage," Hoffman said. "In a situation like that, I suppose the handicap would have to be taken into consideration. But the cases were such that there was no problem."

Presiding Circuit Judge Joseph R. Moss, a former state Supreme Court Chief Justice, agreed that there were "cases in which being able to view evidence or the demeanor of a defendant would be important.

"But there are also cases when a blind person might be able to pick up on something that a sighted person can't," Moss said

"We've been fighting for this for a long time," Burriss said after being discharged from the second case.

Burriss, who also serves on the state board of the Federation for the Blind, said he was "actively involved" in the lobbying effort that resulted in the legislation removing the jury-duty exemption for the blind.

Blinded by a ricocheting bullet in an accident 16 years ago, Burriss said he has learned to accept living with total blindness.

"I have learned to see with my ears," Burriss said.

"Serving on a jury is something that we should have been able to do years ago," he said. "I know that now. It's a shame we have to fight so hard to show people we can do these things.

"I believe a blind person must take the initiative and show that they're capable of doing certain things. When you show you can do something, you're more likely to be accepted."

"We haven't been given many chances, but the public is beginning to see the light. There are other things I want to do. I'm glad to have ben a pioneer as a juror."

A blanket of snow covered the Greenville area Sunday as the area's biggest winter storm in years continued to blow into the evening.

State transportation and emergency officials warned Sunday night of overnight freezes and black ice with the risk for drivers into Monday morning.

Monday update:Bad road conditions greet Upstate drivers as weather alerts warn drivers off roads

More than five inches of snow accumulated Sunday in parts of the city — the most since 4.3 inches fell near Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport on Dec. 8 to 9, 2018.

The National Weather Service reported eight inches of snow in parts of northern Greenville County and that Sunday's storm broke the daily maximum snowfall record with 6.5". The previous record of 5.7" was set in 1965.

Most roads in the area were snow-covered and hazardous. The city of Greenville reported "dozens" of temporarily stranded motorists, and a post on Twitter from the city's verified account said more than 20 cars had spun out on the Church Street bridge downtown.

More than 30,000 people across the Upstate were without power by noon.

There were 5.5 inches of snow reported in the Paris Mountain and Sans Souci areas of Greenville.

More than 5 inches accumulated in Taylors near Eastside High School, and the total was about the same in Powdersville.

Most of the snow accumulation had already occurred by 9 a.m., according to Chris Horne, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Travel on area roads was expected to remain treacherous into Monday.

Flights into and out of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport were cancelled.

Road conditions:SC winter storm: Road conditions are bad and deteriorating, according to Highway Patrol

More:Thousands across the Upstate are without power as snow and sleet continue to fall

Overnight, at 3:03 a.m. Sunday, the National Weather Service reported snowfall rates of more than an inch per hour across the Upstate and Western North Carolina.

Higher amounts accumulated north of Interstate 85 while areas to the southeast got more sleet and freezing rain.

Temperatures were forecast to fall into the upper 20s across the Upstate Sunday night.
