We Keep Roswell Shining Bright

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. That's why, when the electricity in your home or at your job is compromised, life grinds to a halt. Unfortunately, electrical problems are inevitable in today's day and age.

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 Roswell 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 Roswell.

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Roswell, 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 Roswell, 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

Mother's Day is May 8. Restaurants in Roswell are still taking reservations. Book yours today!

ROSWELL, GA — Mother's Day on Sunday, May 8, is quickly approaching. If you want to take your mother to brunch or dinner then making reservations is probably best. Spots in the Roswell area are filling up fast.

This year will be the most normal celebration of mothers since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Local restaurants in Roswell have taken a financial hit during the pandemic and could use the business.

Here are some local options:

If you're looking for something else, check OpenTable for restaurants in your area taking reservations for Mother's Day.

Several chain restaurants and other eateries are open for Mother's Day this year, and some are offering specials.

Below are a few options to get you started, featuring everything from casual to fine dining. As always, it's advisable to call ahead to make sure the restaurants in Roswell are participating and to inquire about any COVID-19 restrictions or limitations.

Applebee's is adding a $10 bonus card to the purchase of a $50 gift card for Mother's Day and other special occasions, including graduations and Father's Day.

Bob Evans is featuring brunch meals made with fresh-cut strawberries. Its to-go meals feed up to six people, and they are available for curbside pickup or delivery when customers order online.

Bonefish Grill is open for dine-in and carryout meals on Mother's Day. Its "Family Bundles" meals include salad, fresh bread and pesto, and house-baked cookies

The Capital Grille is accepting reservations for Mother's Day. The restaurant included a "polite notice" on its reservations page stating that "to better deliver on our promise of a refined atmosphere, proper dress is required." That excludes gym attire, sweatpants, tank tops, hats, clothing with offensive language or images, and exposed undergarments.

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar opens early at 11 a.m. on both May 7 and 8 with its Mother's Day 3-Course Menu featuring a hand-cut filet mignon and pairing of the diner's choice.

Fogo de Chão Brazilian steakhouse is offering a ready-to-reheat Mother's Day Celebration Package that feeds six and features a choice of fire-roasted meats, sides and dessert. Meals should be ordered at least 24 hours in advance and are available all day May 7, and until 10:30 a.m. May 8.

Check out these Roswell gift shops, spas and florists in time for Mother's Day this year.

ROSWELL, GA — What do Roswell moms want from their kids this Mother's Day?

What many will likely get come May 8 are jewelry and Mother's Day brunch or dinner out. Those two categories are driving a record $31.7 billion in Mother's Day spending, a $3.6 billion increase over last year's record, according to a report last week from the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insight & Analytics.

Some 84 percent of U.S. adults said they plan to celebrate Mother's Day with a gift, spending $245 on average on their mothers and mother figures, the report said. Jewelry stores alone are expected to see $7 billion in spending, according to the report.

That's good news for jewelry and keepsake shops around Roswell.

If you're planning to treat Mom to dinner out, reservations are going quickly at restaurants in Roswell, including those OpenTable recently listed among the 100 Best Brunch Spots in America. Reservations are up 39 percent from pre-pandemic 2019, and up 13 percent from 2021, the online reservation service said last week.

And, according to the OpenTable survey, almost half (48 percent) of moms want to celebrate Mother's Day at a restaurant. The survey of 1,255 adults also showed that 45 percent plan to make up for lost time with their mother figures during the pandemic by "going big" this year.

A 2021 YouGov poll revealed the top five gifts moms want are flowers, a card with a heartfelt message, a gift certificate to the spa or for a massage, jewelry and chocolate. Most moms are satisfied with however their children honor them on Mother's Day, though, with 58 percent saying they've never been disappointed by their kids' shows of affection and appreciation.

Some reliable go-to places for gifts in Roswell include

We took our own informal survey of several Patch moms. While by no means scientific, it revealed some similar themes.

"We have always had the girls make homemade cards — even now that they are teenagers," one mom told us, adding the handwritten notes are "so much more meaningful than any Hallmark card could ever be."

Some new moms and those with small children don't want stuff as much as they do a break.

"New moms can't expect to get anything from the kids," one Patch mom told us. "I'd say a restaurant gift certificate for them. That's one less meal to cook."

Another said: "My toddler keeps me running around all the time and doesn't sleep, so any time I can have to take care of myself, anything to feel pampered even just for an hour — mani/pedi, hair blown out, restaurant gift card so I don't have to cook, or just an offer to watch him for one hour."

It never hurts to drop a hint.

"I want a plant — not flowers, because they don't last as long — but a plant that my husband knows I have a spot for and the right light for," one mom told us. Another said, "you can never go wrong with a bottle of wine."

And another Patch mom treats herself to a hike on Mother's Day. "The kids usually join in," she said, "even if they don't want to."

Said another: "Alone time! Night at a hotel. Dinner date or night out with friends. Meals pre-ordered and handled."

Precious ones, we have news for you: Each of you is going to give your mom 45 pieces of homemade artwork between now and when you leave the nest, according to a survey last year conducted by OnePoll for the art website Canvaspop. And while your moms may say they'll treasure your creative expressions as if Picasso himself were responsible — and, in fact, three-fourths of them display some of it on their walls — another fact is 41 percent agree you're "no Picasso."

So, change that up, kiddos.

More than two-thirds of moms last year said they want more family photos for their walls, but with a catch: Give mom a break from behind the shutter and take photos that include her. The average mom surveyed said she's featured in less than half of family photos.

This survey was in 2021, but unless you wore out the shutter on your camera taking photos, the advice holds.

With inflation at a 40-year high, money is tight for many Smyrna families. Experiences count a lot with moms, and they don't have to break the budget.

"I don't need stuff," a Patch mom with an adult child told us. She just wants to spend quality time with her daughter.

"A mom's view of Mother's Day changes as kids get older," another Patch mom said. "When they were little, homemade cards and a Mother's Day spa getaway from them was pure bliss. Now the perfect Mother's Day for me involves dressing up, going out to dinner, and listening to all of their laughter and stories."

But, she said, "I still love the homemade cards and have saved them all through the years!"

Here's another idea: Pick up a nice, cloth-covered journal and write down some of your favorite memories of Mom. Be sure to include some of the bits of advice she's dished out over the years. And don't forget to tell her she was right.

Or how about a scavenger hunt for some of Mom's favorite things? That idea comes from Woman's Day. Or how about a custom jigsaw puzzle of a cherished family photo featuring Mom front and center? (This assumes you've followed the advice above and gotten Mom out from behind the shutter.)

What is your idea of a perfect Mother's Day gift? Tell us in the comments.

PRESS RELEASE: Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization

Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization (RAMBO), a SORBA Chapter and 501(c)3 nonprofit, is proud to announce the construction of a new mountain bike flow and jump trail in the City of Roswell’s Big Creek Park starting late May 2022. The new Hollywood trail will be professionally built by national trailbuilders, Innovative Dirt Solutions in the park’s popular Freeride Area. The new trail will be RAMBO’s largest financial investment in the park’s history. The trail will include a new progressive wood road gap feature, plus a dozen large jumps and berms over a quarter of a mile in length. Expected completion for Hollywood trail is July 1, 2022.

Major funding for this new trail project was provided by community grants from corporate partners, Sunbelt Rentals, Maxxis Tires USA, and REI Co-op. Volunteers from these organizations will also take part in the finishing of the trail, alongside RAMBO volunteers, totaling more than 500 man-hours of community service.

Additional trail project support will be provided by local businesses: Hanley Restorations, ABM Agency, Blue Mountain Bikes, AVC Marine, TKD Sign Studios, and generous GoFundMe donations from local riders and residents.

“This is a very exciting time for our community, and we’re grateful to have both corporate and local businesses investing in new trails and more fun for riders young and old. The Hollywood trail will add to the existing seven miles of multi-use trails at Big Creek Park, which also brings out-of-town riders to stay overnight in Roswell to support our local economy.” - Brad Wender, RAMBO President

The Big Creek Freeride Area has been evolving since its founding in 1996, and the mountain bike trail network offers a unique mountain bike park experience within an urban setting. The progressive trails allow riders to develop their skills through a challenging, gravity-fed trail network. Local middle and high school mountain bike teams, from the Georgia Cycling Association, call Big Creek Park their training home for each fall season of interscholastic racing.

“We are extremely excited about this project and the opportunities that it will create for the members of our community and other visitors from the southeast. The City is proud of our partnership with RAMBO, and appreciate all of their efforts in facilitating this project and the expansion of the mountain bike trail system at Big Creek Park.” – Steven Malone, Deputy Director, Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs Department

Big Creek Park attracts 5,000+ mountain bikers and hikers monthly, and this new trail is expected to attract even more visitors from across the Southeast to stay in Roswell. RAMBO is grateful for the partnership with the City of Roswell’s Recreation, Parks, Historic & Cultural Affairs, as well as the Community Development Department to bring the trail concept to reality.

RAMBO is a Roswell-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, a chapter of the Southern Off Road Bicycle Association (SORBA), and affiliated with the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA). RAMBO and its volunteers have donated more than 27,000 hours of community service and a total financial investment value of more than $500,000 into local parks in Roswell, Alpharetta and Forsyth County over the past 20 years. RAMBO’s mission is to partner with land managers to build and maintain public mountain bike trails, plus offer fun events like our Big Creek Quick Six Enduro and programs for kids and adults in the local community.

About the Cobb County Public Library

According to the Cobb County Public Library website:

Cobb County Public Library is a 15-branch system headquartered in Marietta, Georgia, where its staff members serve a diverse population of over 750,000 people. Cobb is one of Georgia’s fastest-growing counties, and Cobb County Public Library is dedicated to being a resource center in the community by providing equal access to information, materials, and services.

The first public library in Cobb County was opened in the home of Sarah Freeman Clarke in Marietta. The first standalone library building, opened on Church Street in 1893 and was named for Clarke.

Libraries were opened in Acworth and Austell in subsequent years, and in 1959, the city of Marietta and several other Cobb County libraries combined to form a countywide system that began the Cobb County Public Library as we know it today.
