See it, snap it, tell it!

Recent reporting of a safety issue in Gardendale was followed by that safety issue being fixed. Did our reporting have anything to do with it? The company involved would probably say no, but we do know that after it was reported they fixed it! If you know of any safety issues involving the oil companies and subcontractors in Gardendale, please let us know so that we may consider posting them.  A few rules:

1) No trespassing. You can take photos from right of ways and on private land if you have the owner’s permission.

2) Don’t overgeneralize. For example, a comment submitted that says something like “XYZ company sucks.” won’t be considered.

3) You must be willing to stand by what you claim and send in. Anonymous complaints or complaints of “I want you to know but I don’t want to be involved” won’t likely be considered unless it can be verified independently.

4)Profanity not allowed. “Those @#%$#&@ ran over my pet goat with one of their company trucks!” Will be edited, if possible before use.

5)Gardap has the right to (and will) independently verify  and edit anything you send.

Send in your photos and stories. Help us hold them accountable.

We believe we enjoy (as a sort of home made localized news outlet) 1st amendment protections! So do you….exercise them!
