A look back

By Staff
Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
There is increasing interest in this year's city elections. Potential candidates are finalizing their decisions about whether to run or not.
1886 -February 26, It is a praiseworthy fact for our town and people that the Hartsell mayor and marshal have had but little official duty to perform recently. Everyone seems content to attend to his own business and let others alone, thus everything moves on quietly, but prosperously.
1948 -February 26, While serving as mayor of Hartselle, Mr. Steve Nelson has purchased two fire trucks for the city. During his term as mayor from 1928-1932 the present fire truck was bought. As the town grew, the need for a larger and more modern fire truck became a necessity. The new truck which arrived last week is a 500-gallon pumper and carries 300 gallons of water. Mayor Nelson most recently became mayor by council appointment due to a vacancy.
1906 -February 27, C. H. Cooper, ex-mayor of Hartselle and a most excellent citizen, is in poor health.
1958 -February 27, John H. Reynolds (who would later serve as mayor of Hartselle) is the new manager at Elmore's 5 &10.
1895 -February 28, Hartselle Mayor J. H. Corsbie is currently serving as a member of the State Board of Embalmers.
1912 -February 29, The New Decatur city council is currently wrestling with the problem of what to do about slot machines. It is probable that an ordinance will be prepared regulating them.
1879 -March 1, Hartsell will receive its charter from the State of Alabama later this month.
1947 -March 2, There is considerable pressure on the mayor and council to enact an ordinance requiring Hartselle residents having chickens to keep them within enclosures or face fines.
1910 -March 3, As warmer and dryer weather approaches, the businessmen are increasingly urging the Hartselle board of aldermen to buy a sprinkling cart. The damage to stocks of goods here by dust will continue to be high until something is done.
2003 -March 3, Hartselle Mayor Clif Knight believes there is no way the city can do all of the things it needs to do without additional tax revenue.
