Don’t miss our special publications
It’s been a busy couple of months for the Hartselle Enquirer and we are proud of the special publications that are now on newsstands and around town. When weeks and months of planning, writing and editing come to fruition in the form of our Profile issue or Hartselle Living, it’s very rewarding – especially when the stories inside feature people worthy of recognition who are also humbled to have their story told.
We sincerely hope you enjoy reading these publications.
Be a part of your community newspaper
The past few months you might have noticed several new bylines in the Hartselle Enquirer. I’d like to take a moment to further introduce you, readers, to those in our community who are swiftly becoming regular contributors to the newspaper and magazine. Their work continues to make us better. On this page you’ll find a column written by Jacob Hatcher, who to me, is Hartselle’s blend of Sean Dietrich and Rick Bragg. Don’t go and get a big head, Jacob, but I’ll tell you folks as quickly as I’ve told him several times: he is a writer through and through. He’s meant to write and it’s an easy realization when one column can take you back to “The Good Old Days” or draw a tear or two from your eye. Thank you, Jacob, for sharing your talent with our audience.
Photographers Justin Powell and Tristan Holmes have been a great help in covering events in Hartselle and Morgan County, and they both have great talent in this arena. Someone recently complimented Hartselle Living, calling it “high-class,” and I’m here to tell you, our magazine photographers Rachel Howard and Jodi Hyde are a big part of the quality. These ladies aren’t new to our publications but their time and talent deserve extra recognition any chance we get.
Aubrey Weddington is a senior at Priceville High School who is planning on studying English and professional writing when she continues her education. She has written a couple of articles recently for the newspaper that you can read on our website. She plans to continue contributing to the newspaper in the future.
In addition, Russell Frye, with the help of Jim Meadows and Mariann Parker, continue to fill our entire sports section every week and their coverage of Hartselle athletics is unparalleled. Several new photographers have begun to submit photos this season too. Again, these folks are not new, but without a doubt, appreciated.
Like my father is known for, “I say all this to say” this community newspaper would not be what is without its community. So, a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to those who contribute, act as a source of information or provide story ideas.
