“We’re proud of the achievements this newspaper has accomplished under the previous management of Leada Gore as editor and publisher,” said Bill Beckner, acting group co-manager for Boone Newspapers, Inc., which manages the company. “And we’re confident that Randy, Brent, Clif Knight and their staff will build on that foundation and continue to provide Hartselle and Morgan County an outstanding group of publications.”

He and his wife, Lynn are lifelong residents of Hartselle. They have two sons, Jordan, a first year pharmacy student at Auburn University and Jacob, a senior at Hartselle High School.
“We want our publications to continue to grow in readership and give our advertisers a good return on their investment, Garrison said. “At the same time we’re excited about
enhancing our website and making it more attractive to both online readers and advertisers by updating continuously throughout  the day, seven days a week.”
Maze, a native of Kimberly in north Jefferson County, graduated from Mortimer Jordan High School and attended the University of Alabama-Birmingham where he studied communication studies.
He comes to Hartselle from Alexander City where he served as managing editor and web editor for Tallapoosa Publishers, Inc., which manages The Alexander City Outlook, The Dadeville Record and Lake magazine.  Previously, he was sports editor at The Leeds News and sports editor and managing editor at The Clanton Advertiser.
Maze said he’s excited to have the opportunity to live and work in Hartselle.
“This is a great opportunity for me and I look forward to working with everyone in the community, being active within the community through church, civic and other community involvement,” Maze said. “Your input is always welcome. Please feel free to call me at 256-773-6566 or e-mail me at brent.maze@hartselleenquirer.com. If there’s an issue you’d like to talk about, drop us a letter to the editor. And please submit your community news items. We’d love to get as much in the newspaper as possible.”
Maze said residents could expect continuous news updates from Hartselle and Morgan County at www.hartselleenquirer.com.
“News will appear as it happens and obituaries will be posted as soon as we receive them from funeral homes,” Maze added. “We will also add additional features to our website, including photo galleries and video. We will also begin daily e-mail updates for news, lunch specials and several other features. We would also encourage you to become a Facebook fan and to follow us on Twitter to receive even more news updates. We want www.hartsellenquirer.com and the Hartselle Enquirer to be your first source of news for Hartselle and Morgan County.”
