We Keep Sugar Hill 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.

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 Sugar Hill 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 Sugar Hill.

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

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Sugar Hill, 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.

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

Two new members of the Sugar Hill City Council were sworn in during a meeting Monday, Nov. 8, at City Hall.

The meeting opened with Mason Roszel and Jenn Thatcher taking an oath of office to serve the residents of Sugar Hill. Roszel fills a seat vacated by Brandon Hembree, who successfully ran for mayor and will be sworn in to replace outgoing mayor Steve Edwards in January. Thatcher is filling a seat vacated by Susie Walker.

The Tuesday, Nov. 2, election results were unanimously ratified by the council during this session.

On taking part in his first meeting as a council member, Roszel said, “It’s an honor to serve with this group. We have a really special group of council members and a special mayor here, and the vision that they’ve set is one that I know attracted me to get involved in the first place, and this is just the next chapter of being able to serve in a bigger capacity.”

Thatcher added, “It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to serve. It was an adventure to run, so I’m very excited to see what’s next to come. I believe in the vision of this city. I believe in what we’re doing here, and in the long-term view, and I think that we have the right people in place to make that happen.”

The city council also recognized Sugar Hill resident Andrew Jason Thiel. Thiel was joined by friends and family to be recognized for his outstanding achievements in the face of adversity. “Andy,” as Edwards called him, was diagnosed with Down syndrome shortly after his birth as well as a hole in his heart, which shortened his life expectancy to roughly four years. After a successful heart surgery, Andy went on to graduate high school and participated in the Special Olympics from age 8, winning gold medals in gymnastics and snow skiing. He also made time to help out with his sister’s softball team and has been a dedicated and beloved employee of the Sugar Hill Publix Super Market for 15 years. For his contributions to the community and his general compassion and positivity, Edwards presented Thiel with a commendation and declared Nov. 8 “Andy Day.”

The council also recognized the North Gwinnett cluster Teachers of the Year, honoring a number of local educators from elementary to high school levels for their inspiring efforts in the classroom. Among them was Jenny Stark, a media specialist with six years of experience teaching at North Gwinnett Middle School. Stark is one of 25 semi-finalists for Gwinnett County Public Schools’ Teacher of the Year award.

The city council also honored Eleanor Jones, a local ninth grader at Lanier High School who won the contest to design the commemorative poster for this year’s Sugar Rush event. Council Member Marc Cohen spoke on the youth’s achievements and showcased her intricate poster design.

Jones’ mother, Kerry Murphy, said, “We are so proud of Ellie! She is an incredible artist but also a kind, smart and wonderful person. She has been drawing since she could first hold a pencil and works hard everyday to learn and grow as an artist … It’s moments like these that motivate and inspire and we will certainly remember it always!”

The council also recognized the young women of All-In Futbol Club’s U15 Georgia Premier League girls team who won the U15G division, the top division in the state. Edwards made a point to mention the team not only achieved victory, but they did it without being issued any yellow or red cards, indicating they did so with honor and class. Edwards presented the team with the Sugar Hill soccer ball and was in turn presented with a ball signed by the team’s coaching staff.

The meeting also provided time for residents to voice any concerns they had to the council. During this time, Dr. Denise Hoell addressed her concerns regarding COVID-19 restrictions that were put in place at a recent Pat Benatar concert that took place Friday, Oct. 22, at The Bowl. She read a prepared statement expressing her displeasure that residents who did not have proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 were forced to provide a negative COVID test to gain entry to the concert, calling the restrictions, “infractions on our freedom, liberty and personal choice.” Citing that the average COVID test costs $127, she also referred to the requirement as “financially irresponsible and an example of poor stewardship of our tax money.”

“There are some backstories that you may not know about,” Edwards responded. “I appreciate you coming forward and speaking to us … I’ll have somebody reach out to you with all the backstories that you may not know about.”

The council then moved to new business, the first of which was a special-use permit for LaVida Massage Sugar Hill. The new owner of the Sugar Hill Corners establishment, Umang Davé, cited his credentials and his desire to contribute to the Sugar Hill community by going beyond just massages.

“Instead of it being a regular massage center, I will also be offering additional workshops on mindfulness, meditation and mental health,” he said. “I want it to be a space for people to come in and hold fundraisers, non-profit meetings, because I have a lot of space … that I can use for these kind of events.”

The council unanimously approved the special-use permit.

Also on the agenda was approval of a contract award for the Greenway Signage Program. The bid was to be awarded to IMG of Norcross, one of several companies up for the $137,533 contract. IMG will be responsible for the construction and placement of just under 100 signs along the Greenway. The contract award was approved unanimously.

Also approved was a roadway resurfacing list to be submitted to the Georgia Department of Transportation. The following streets are recommended for the 2022 Local Maintenance and Improvement grant program: Brookdale Drive; Primrose Park Road; Primrose Park Court; Summer Creek Court; Blossom Brook Drive; Avalon Creek Road; Roberts Run Cove; Spring Hill Drive; Pinecrest Drive; Church Street; W. Broad Street; and Alton Tucker Boulevard.

The council then addressed an addendum to Memorandum of Understanding with the Sugar Hill Downtown Development Authority, which returns $5,000,000 to the city of Sugar Hill from the Solis Project for sale of property and to complete closing on all parcels necessary for the project’s development.

Georgia landscaper ordered to pay $175K in back wages, penalties after US Department of Labor finds violations of H-2A worker program

SUGAR HILL, GA – A Sugar Hill landscape company violated requirements of the federal H-2A temporary agricultural worker programs related to hours, wages, transportation costs and work assignments, an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor determined.

Following the investigation and subsequent lawsuit by the Solicitor of Labor, the department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges ordered Resendiz Pine Straw LLC to pay $136,971 in back wages to 110 workers, and affirmed the assessment of a $39,016 civil money penalty due to the nature of the violations. The order also debars Resendiz from participating in the H-2A program for three years.

Investigators with the department’s Wage and Hour Division found the employer – operating as Resendiz Pine Straw LLC and Tobacco – misrepresented the work location of the employees in the H-2A application and sent some employees nearly 600 miles away to do farm work in Arcadia, Florida, when there was not enough work in Sugar Hill. By doing so, the employer engaged in cost-shifting and failed to provide workers at least three-quarters of the hours of work stated in the original job offer. Resendiz failed to uphold the terms of the H-2A contract regarding pay, duties and housing.

The division also found Resendiz did not reimburse workers for all their transportation costs as the law requires, failed to provide them with copies of their contracts and deducted time for breaks and lunches illegally. These deductions resulted in underpayment of wages.

“The H-2A visa program allows agricultural employers to hire temporary workers to address labor shortages. These H-2A workers keep food on our tables, allow agricultural employers to stay in business, and help our communities thrive,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Nicolas Ratmiroff in Tampa, Florida. “The hard work done by these men and women is vital to food production and the agricultural community. We encourage any employer with questions about pay practices, hours of work or any of our H visa programs to contact us for guidance.”

H-2A programs govern labor standards for temporary, nonimmigrant workers who come to the U.S. to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature. Learn more about the H-2A program and other laws enforced by the Wage and Hour Division, contact the division’s toll-free helpline at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243).

It’s Wunderbar! Success of the New Sugar Hill Distillery is in the Details.

At first glance, the new Sugar Hill Distillery seems like a “wunderbar,” (German for wonderful), place to kick back with a craft brew and friends. But take a closer look and you’ll see three distinct brands within one very ambitious operation: The Sugar Hill Distillery, Apparition Brewing and Wunderbar Bierhaus.

Established in 2016, Sugar Hill Distillery was selling honey from their honey bee farm during the city’s tent events. Fast forward to 2021 and they’re now a full-service Euro bistro serving homemade whiskey and other fine spirits including a gluten free alcohol, Euro German fare, and craft beer all under the same roof. If that sounds like a tall order, it is! The Distillery is the first in the nation to be dual permitted as a Distillery and Brewery sharing the same bonded space and equipment for both processes.

From the Sugar Hill Distillery’s handmade wooden tables and barrel-inspired bar to its divine desserts and herbs that grow along the fence of its outdoor Biergarten (beer garden), there is so much to take notice of and appreciate here.

That’s because owners, Jay and Keri Liebrock have poured their collective skills and passions into every detail of Sugar Hill Distillery. Jay, or “JD” to most, is the brew master and distiller. As a retired Director of Intelligence in the U.S. Army with an entrepreneurial spirit, he wanted to create a legacy for his family’s children and grandchildren. His wife and partner Keri, brings years of restaurant industry experience to the Wunderbar Bierhaus & Euro Bistro. They are proud to have the talented Executive Chef Morgan Pollard bringing Keri’s restaurant menu to a delicious reality.

“There are lots of special details that have gone into Sugar Hill Distillery,” says Bar Manager Anne Marie Dozier. The siding on the handcrafted bar emulates a barrel. Elegant labels adorn bottles of spirits made on premises. Even their modern pendant lighting was custom made. Visitors of Sugar Hill Distillery are invited to take a seat at a long table for family style dining. “In Germany, it’s customary for everyone to come together and knock on the table as they sit down and join the group,” explains Dozier. “You never know. You might make a new friend.”

A large viewing window inside the dining room gives customers a peek of onsite distilling and brewing operations. Outside is a lovely covered Biergarten with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s also hard to leave Sugar Hill Distillery empty-handed. Their fully stocked gift shop offers spirits to go, t-shirts, wooden carved keychains, candy, homemade honey and much more.

Housed in the original City of Sugar Hill community center and part of downtown Sugar Hill’s SHINE district, you can purchase a drink in a non-glass SHINE marked cup and take it to go within the SHINE district boundaries.

To experience this new downtown hotspot, visit the Sugar Hill Distillery at 1166 Church Street for lunch daily and brunch on the weekends. They’re also open for dinner Monday through Thursday 10 am to 10 pm, Friday 11 am to 11 pm, Saturday 10 am to 11 pm and Sunday 9 am to 10 pm. Look for the vintage car parked in their lot!

The Biergarten is available for booking of your next special event! Need more info? Email keri@sugarhillstills.com

Prost! (Cheers!)

Sugar Hill Christian Academy has announced its highest academic achievers for the 2021-2022 school year with the announcement of their valedictorian and salutatorian for the Class of 2022.

The valedictorian is recognized annually at the end of the first semester as the senior with the highest cumulative grade point average for seven semesters of high school, with the salutatorian being the student having earned the second highest GPA.

Sugar Hill Christian Academy’s salutatorian for the class of 2022, graduating second in his class, is Jack Swift.

The valedictorian for SHCA’s class of 2022, graduating first in his class is Zander Steffey.

“I consider it a true honor to be named valedictorian,” Steffey said. “SHCA has been my second home for as long as I can remember. The faculty and friends I have here are absolutely incredible.”

“I am proud of Zander and Jack for earning the titles of valedictorian and salutatorian,” said Kristi Burlison, SHCA’s vice principal. “They have both challenged themselves throughout high school, taking the most difficult courses offered.”

“These two young men have made an educational career out of hard work, determination and the investment of time,” said Courtney Simmons, SHCA’s dean of students. “Countless hours have been spent in study — both in and out of the classroom.”

Not only have the two young men applied themselves scholastically, but both have been members of various clubs and athletic teams. Both have invested in younger students through the school’s elementary book buddies program, and both have served as tutors through the National Honor Society. Through their examples, they’ve impacted their elders, as well.

Burlison describes Steffey and Swift as well-rounded leaders, “always choosing to be men of character.”

“It is obvious with their high honors that they found success academically, but it is also important to highlight their integrity,” said SHCA’s high school advisor Cheryl Baraban. “These two young men are self-sacrificing, independent, and serve as role models in community involvement and encouragement to their peers.”

“These are the types of young men we will continue to discuss among ourselves and follow their trajectories in life, long after they leave us,” Simmons said.

“It is an honor to be named salutatorian,” Swift said. “I will always be grateful to the friends and teachers who have poured into me at SHCA. Stallions Forever!”

Steffey and Swift will deliver valedictory and salutatory addresses at the school’s 2022 commencement ceremony to be held in May.

Happy birthday, Sugar Hill — City to celebrate 83 years with special event

Sugar Hill residents are invited to a birthday celebration for the city, which is marking 83 years since its founding.

The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 24, at the Sugar Hill History Museum at 5010 W. Broad St. Residents are invited to celebrate with cake and balloons alongside mascot Eddy the Eagle.

“Celebrating our history as an official city is exciting,” said Sugar Hill Mayor Brandon Hembree. “Outside of Berkeley Lake and Peachtree Corners, Sugar Hill is the third youngest city out of sixteen cities in Gwinnett County. Our history is unique in comparison to all of the other cities.”

During the celebration, Hembree and Historic Preservation Society Chair Kathryn Baskin will provide tours of the downtown area offering historic facts about the city.

“The walking tour for our 83rd Birthday as city, will take place in Downtown Sugar Hill. Even though most of our downtown-area is new, tour guides will be talking about our history as a community that predates the actual creation of Sugar Hill as a city in 1939,” Hembree said. “Some of the stops on the tour will include topics related to our gold mining past, the railroads, and other subjects that uniquely shaped the Sugar Hill we call home today.”

Residents are also invited to give back as part of the birthday event — donations of hygiene products will be accepted for the North Gwinnett Co-op and monetary gifts will go to the United Way — United for Ukraine Fund. Residents who donate to either cause can enter a raffle hosted by Sugar Hill Youth Council member Bailey Coleman, and winners will receive a limited edition Sugar Hill T-shirt. The donation drive is ongoing through Thursday, March 24, and drop-off boxes for hygiene products can be found at Sugar Hill City Hall near customer service, the E Center reception desk and the Sugar Hill Art Gallery and History Museum. Residents who make a monetary donation to the United Way fund for Ukraine can submit proof of their donation to communications@cityofsugarhill.com to be entered into the raffle. Winners will be announced during the birthday celebration.

While Thursday’s event will celebrate the history of Sugar Hill, the future of the city will also be in mind.

“History has a unique way of connecting our past, present, and future — the three cannot be separated,” he said. “In celebrating our past as a community, I see a good future for the city. Many of the characteristics that have always been present in Sugar Hill — like a strong sense of community — will help ensure that we continue to thrive as a city.”
