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 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.

Because, at the end of the day, a little knowledge can go a long way when it comes to your family's safety.

 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.

Electrical Services Powdersville, SC

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

Beaufort High football earned its second-straight state championship trip by defeating one of the state’s powerhouse programs.

The Eagles defeated perennial power Dillon 30-21 on Friday night in the Class 3A Lower State finals. Beaufort will play Powdersville at 7 p.m. Thursday for the state championship at Benedict College’s Charlie W. Johnson Stadium in Columbia.

Powdersville defeated Clinton 27-14 to earn its first trip to the state title game.

“It is something that hasn’t happened before going to state championship two years in a row,” Beaufort coach Bryce Lybeand said Saturday morning. “We are getting to do some things that haven’t been done before. Last night was awesome. That is why we try to schedule tough games, go play in fun places so when we play in big games that they are used to it. They won’t be intimidated by going anywhere and playing.

“We have gone to Myrtle Beach and Dillon in back-to-back playoffs and won games.”

It is Beaufort’s third state championship appearance since 1964 and second in a row. Beaufort played for the Class 4A championship last season, losing to South Pointe. The Eagles were moved to Class 3A this season as part of the S.C. High School League’s realignment process.

Beaufort handed Dillon its first loss of the season and first home playoff loss since 2011. The Wildcats are one of the top programs in the state, winning seven state championships and making 10 title appearances since 2008.

Beaufort running back Kacy Fields rushed for 159 yards and three second-half touchdowns in the game. Two of Fields’ touchdowns came in the third quarter as the Eagles led 21-14.

Dillon tied the game on Ty Martin’s run with 2:08 left in the third quarter.

The Eagles took the lead on a bizarre play in the fourth quarter. Beaufort was driving deep into Wildcats’ territory before Dillon’s Donnezz Alford intercepted Samari Bonds’ pass in the end zone. But the Wildcats were flagged for holding in the end zone on Alford’s return. As a result, Beaufort was awarded a safety and took a 23-21 lead with 10:50 left.

“It is just a weird play, never seen it happen before but they made the right call,” Lybrand said. “I’m sure the people at Dillon didn’t like it but they made the right call. The refs got together and talked about it to make sure it was right.

Beaufort extended the lead on Fields’ 2-yard run on the next possession with 6:20 left. The Eagles benefited from a short field after the kickoff.

Beaufort’s defense came up with two interceptions on Dillon’s next two drives, including Don Camacho’s inside the 20-yard line, to seal the win.

Beaufort finished with 410 yards rushing in the game and didn’t complete a pass in three attempts. The Eagles also overcame five turnovers in the game.

“We moved the ball all night. It wasn’t always easy,” Lybrand said. “But we just got to clean up those mistakes.”

Colton Phares led the Eagles with 163 yards rushing and a 36-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 in the first quarter. Bonds added 85 yards on nine carries.

Chris McCollum had two touchdown runs for the Wildcats.

Powdersville upends Clinton in AAA Upper State championship

Clinton’s dream season came to an end Friday at 13-1 – the same record that the team that defeated them, Powdersville, has as the Patriots advance to the AAA State Championship against Beaufort, in a 27-14 Upper State Championship win.

The Patriots were successful in slowing the run, bottling up Clinton’s 3-headed monster – Bryson James, Jayden Robinson, and Jishun Copeland - each with 1,000 yards on the 2022 season.

Powdersville’s only loss was by 2 to Hillcrest, and along the way to the Upper State Championship they ended Daniel’s 36-game winning streak.

Still, Clinton drew first blood on a blocked punt and scoop and score by James. The senior running back, one of seven finalists for the title of Mr. Football in South Carolina, also ran in a touchdown; he also returned a kickoff for a touchdown, negated by an official’s flag. But without its usual gashing running game, Clinton had to throw the ball with mixed success – some completions but a back-breaking pick-six by the Patriot defense.

Clinton Football Corey Fountain said, “I told my guys I love them. One game does not define a whole season. I wouldn’t trade these guys for anything. A lot of these guys are playing with all their heart. I appreciate Red Devil Nation that came out and supported us tonight and cheered us on as hard as they could. I apologize that we couldn’t get it done.”

Zay Johnson blocked the Powdersville punt that James scooped for a score, before Powdersville ran in a touchdown and took a 7-6 lead with 6:57 to play in the first quarter.

Powdersville snagged an interception in the end zone, then Clinton answered with a fumble recovery and James’ scoring run to claim a 14-7 end of the first half lead.

Powdersville picked up the pace in the second half, driving for a field goal. Then, two plays later, the Patriots defense scored the pick six, staking Powdersville to a 17-14 lead.

James ran back the ensuing kickoff for the touchdown that was taken off the board by a blocking penalty. Powdersville swung Thomas Williams out of the backfield for a pass and catch touchdown with 3:09 left in the 3rd quarter.

Powdersville kicked short to keep the ball out of James’ hands. Clinton was stopped, and Powdersville booted another field goal. That was the last scoring with 8:03 left to play. Clinton’s final possession ended with a sack on 3rd down and an interception on 4th down.

“They hit us quick and scored and we answered back with a kickoff return, and as it happened we had a penalty,” Fountain said. “You take away that and it might have been a whole different ball game.”

At 13-1, Clinton improved on the 2021 season record of 11-2 when they made it three rounds deep in the playoffs before losing to Daniel. The Red Devils were Upper State Champions in 2009 when they won the State Championship, a 12-3 Red Devil team; in 2005 defeating Union, an 11-4 Red Devil team; and in 1993 defeating Seneca, a Red Devil 12-3 team. This is Powdersville’s first Upper State Championship.

Congratulations to Hammond head coach Jon Wheeler, the winner of SBLive South Carolina's Coach of Week award as voted by South Carolina high school sports fans.

Wheeler received 50% of our state-wide vote after his team culminated a great season with a 52-0 rout of Laurence Manning in the SCISA 4-A state championship game. Wheeler is adding to Hammond’s legendary stature. The Skyhawks have won six straight state championships and 20 altogether.

If you would like to nominate a coach, please email gary@scorebooklive.com or message us on Twitter or Instagram at @sblivesc.

Here's a look at the other great coaches who were nominated for this this week's honor:

Robert Mustar, Powdersville

Daniel lost. Let that sink in. Nobody was expecting that even though Powdersville came into the game with an 11-1 record.

But the Patriots scored a touchdown with less than a minute remaining. Mustar made the daring move of going for two and it was successful. Gone is Daniel’s 36-game winning streak and two straight state championships.

Bryce Lybrand, Beaufort

Lybrand had the Beaufort in the state semifinals a year ago and now’s got the Eagles there once more. Beaufort rallied to beat Gilbert 31-21 on Friday.

Todd Shigley, Andrew Jackson

The Volunteers were okay last year. They’re great now. Shigley has Andrew Jackson sitting at 12-1 and in the AA state semifinals.

Andrew Jackson’s latest win was its most impressive. The Volunteers whipped previously unbeaten Barnwell 41-14.

Michael Nelson, Holly Hill Academy

Nelson has built the premier 8-man football program in SCISA. The Raiders just wrapped their third consecutive state championship with a 68-20 trouncing of Wyman King Academy.

Holly Hill has won 36 consecutive games.

Page Wofford, Northwestern

Wofford has his team peaking at exactly the right time. The Trojans have triggered a running clock in all three of their state playoff games.

Stewart Young, Saluda

Young took the Tigers to the 2019 AA state championship. It looks like he’s aiming for another one. The Tigers blanked Strom Thurmond 28-0 in the third round for their fifth straight win.

North Augusta cut the deficit to 14-7 at halftime on a one-yard run by DJ Curry.

Greenville 24, South Pointe 20

Greenville edged the South Pointe Stallions 24-20 in the second round of the playoffs Friday night in Greenville.

Greenville opened the scoring with a 44-yard field goal by Thomas Guerrero, and that 3-0 score held up through the end of the opening quarter. They made it 10-0 early in the second quarter when quarterback Bryson Drummond passed to MJ Bennett on a 15-yard play.

The Stallions answered when quarterback Malachi Marshall hooked up with Armendez Huskey on a 69-yard play to cut the deficit to 10-7. Drummond answered for Greenville with a 21-yard pass to Tyler Brown, and it was 17-7 at halftime.

South Pointe cut the lead to 17-14 midway through the third period when Marshall passed to Huskey on a five-yard play.

Greenville countered. Drummond passed to Cameron Perfater on an eight-yard play to stretch the lead to 24-14.

The Stallions answered in the fourth period when Jae Sanders passed to Marshall on a four-yard play. That made it 24-20 after the extra point was missed because of a bad snap.

South Pointe ended its season with an overall record of 8-4.

Westside 39, Indian Land 35

Westside edged the Indian Land Warriors 39-35 in the second round of the playoffs Friday night in Anderson.

After a scoreless first quarter, both teams scored twice for a 14-14 tie at intermission.

Indian Land answered in a hurry. Myles Stinson scored from one-yard out, and the 14-14 score remained through the end of the first half.
