Hartselle Enquirer

Be a part of your newspaper

Hartselle is definitely living up to its name – City of Southern Hospitality.
That has certainly been my experience over the last two weeks that I have been here. Whether it’s been Mayor Dwight Tankersley, the hotel manager where I’ve been staying temporarily until I can find an apartment, members of the Rotary Club I met on Tuesday or any other place I’ve gone here, the name is an understatement of how friendly the people of Hartselle are.
Granted, most places in Alabama are friendly places, but Hartselle is different. It’s much more genuine than other places I’ve been, and I feel lucky that I was able to take the job up here and live in this community.
While I’ve never lived here, I feel like everyone has made me feel like I belong. In fact, as I was talking to my family, I have learned that I, in fact, have some local ties here as my great grandfather moved from Morgan County to Kimberly, my hometown, many years ago.
As I am getting settled in here at the Enquirer, I would also invite you to come by and see us here. I’d love to meet you and talk with you about things that are going on in our community. I’ve met so many of you already, but I’m sure I will see you around town, whether at the grocery store, at a meeting, at the ball park covering a game or just at a local restaurant.
I want you to know that this is your local newspaper and I want to make sure that we’re covering the things you want us to cover. I know sports is big here in Hartselle and we will continue to have the same coverage we’ve always given sports, from youth leagues to high school and beyond.
We’re also going to publish the items you send to us too. My goal is to see just how many faces and names we can get in the paper each week.
So if you’ve got a local family reunion picture, send it to us. If you won some kind of award, whether local, state or national, we’d love to print it in the paper.
If your child that’s age 8 or younger is having a birthday, we want your child’s picture so we can put it in the lifestyles section. Same thing goes for engagements and wedding announcements. We have forms here in the office or on our website to submit these items.
And one other news goal is to improve our online content through our website and launch daily e-mail updates. So I want to give you a reason to check out www.hartselleenquirer.com every day.
Please bear with us through this transition period. Always feel free to drop in and see me, call me at 256-773-6566 or e-mail me at brent.maze@hartselleenquirer.com.
Brent Maze is the managing editor of the Hartselle Enquirer.
