We, Chief Stroup and family, are closing a chapter of our life and beginning a new one. It’s has been an honor to serve as Chief of Police but we have decided to retire from law enforcement and focus on Cater2Cops and Clean Start Pressure Washing. Our last day will be Oct 12th. We would like to thank Mayor Lucas, Council members and the community for their support and this opportunity.

Parents and Stakeholders,
We need your help with an urgent issue. There is a social media trend calls “Devious Licks” among school age young people. Students commit acts of vandalism or theft and post their video doing so on TikTok. This is happening in schools across the state snd is becoming a serious issue. Although we have only had a few incidents, the cost is beginning to add up. Please talk to your student about this issue and impress upon them how serious the matter has become. If we have proof of a student participating in the challenge, he/she will face disciplinary consequences, financial consequences, and could be subject to prosecution.

Thank you in advance for your help. We do not want to hold any student accountable for these acts and you can help.

Sincerely,
Raymond C. Porter
Superintendent

I would like to thank everyone who voted for and supported me during my campaign for Mayor! Thanks to Rudy Stewart for running a clean campaign; also, I would like to thank all the candidates who won or lost for putting themselves out there for service for this town and community. I'm looking forward to making my campaign promise to come true. BBTG-Bring Back The Gap! Thanks so much! Frank Lucas
I have tried to see as many as I could during my campaign for Mayor of Jacksons Gap; but, because of COVID-19, we cannot gather, shake hands, or visit in homes. So it's been a very unusual situation. For those of you that I was unable to see, I would appreciate your vote tomorrow for Mayor. There is a lot at stake for our town and community, and I have plans and visions to move our town forward. I want to involve our community in our government. I cannot do these things unless I am elected, and I cannot be elected unless you go vote! Please vote tomorrow for Frank Lucas for Mayor so 'WE CAN BRING BACK THE GAP'! Thank you so much!
Can anyone tell me if anyone raises their own colony of dubias or crickets in this area? I have a chameleon and I can't seem to find live foods, locally for her. :(
My friend said this beautiful fur baby showed up at her house on Main Street sometime yesterday. Please contact me or Angela D Radford here on Facebook if it's your baby.
Is there any other trash pick up service for Jacosons Gap other than Advance Disposal? I'm so tired of not getting our trash picked up every week. :(
Anyone missing this sweet little baby girl??
Looking for the home of AM Harris
looking for an old buddy,Bobby Burkhalter, last seen in middle 70s. I believe he was also living in Ashland Ala .we were stationed in korea togeather.in 1964-1965 contac tom coleman 301 723 0106
So, we have been feeding the puppy that lives in the drainage pipe in the trailer park for about a week now, and she still won't come to us. If anyone can catch her without scaring her off I would be glad to take her to the shelter where she will be dewormed, fed, and will find a good home.....before she gets run over like all of her siblings did. Time is running out, the older she gets without socialization the harder it will be to find her a home. Plus, she lays right on the road all the time...Just throwing that out there...we will keep trying..
