Best Of The Best

Letter from the Editor

As a community and as a country, even as a human race, we’re navigating uncharted waters these days. It seems like it was a different world prior to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – one we long to get back to for a sense of normalcy.  

Dark times – filled with uncertainty, stress, anxiety and little hope about how the future will play out – call for a large dose of positivity, if you ask me. Working on this issue of Hartselle Living actually helped me see a little light in a worrisome time in all of our lives. We’re all just doing the best we can, right?  

I hope you’ll enjoy this issue of Hartselle Living and spend some time with these stories curated for our readers. If we’re talking about how recent goingson can affect one’s outlook and mental health, look no further than Laura Glenn and her story of how she meshed her career as a social worker with her love of horses. She and her mother Martha operate Healing Hooves on Gary Anders Road in Hartselle. Glenn is a licensed mental health practitioner who always wanted to find a way to share the benefits of equine therapy with others. She and her horse Beau grace our cover this issue.  

We also feature the beautiful home of Kassi and Caleb Long on Tabernacle Road. The old farmhouse, on family land that dates back decades, features a wraparound porch and antiques throughout. It’s a beautiful home the Longs say is a dream come true.  

We also feature Bryan Moore, the new head football coach at Hartselle High School, and Constance Smith brings us a feature on a popular way to preserve food – steam canning – as well as a couple of delicious zucchini recipes. 

There are good things going on in our community and good people who are making Hartselle a better place to live. If you know of a friend or neighbor who has a story to share, please reach out to me anytime.  

Thanks for reading,
