A look back

Hartselle municipal elections are now a little less than a year away. At this point it appears that they will be hotly contested.
1911-September 18, Pierce Pattillo, through his attorney E. W. Bodley, brought suit today in the law and equity court against J. L. Draper for possession of the officer of commissioner for the town of Hartselle. Pierce contends that Draper is not legally entitled to this office.
1916-September 19, Falkville incumbent Mayor Summerford and his challenger J. N. Powell are waging an active campaign for the top spot in that town's government. The community is evenly divided between the two men.
1910-September 20, W. B. Lindsey and Leldon Day are meeting with supporters and potential backers daily as they compete to be mayor of Hartselle.
1960 – September 21, Grady Long, Orville Tanner, and Robert Street are actively campaigning to succeed John Burleson as Hartselle's mayor.
1920-September 22, A. P. Howell is having it easy at present. He is unopposed for Hartselle mayor. Chester Lee had considered running, but ultimately decided not to.
1940 -September 23, Incumbent Mayor J. P. Hodges and S. M. Nelson are presently engaged in a heated contest to determine which of the two will serve Hartselle as its chief executive during the next four years. (Mayor Hodges was subsequently re-elected by a margin of 18 votes.)
1918 -September 24, Capt. Samuel Blackwell is campaigning vigorously for the office of mayor of Albany, the thriving city to Hartselle's north. Capt. Blackwell, a native of Danville, has not been feeling well of late, however. (He was stricken with paralysis the day of his election and died without ever taking possession of his office.)
1954-September 24, Mrs. Maud Day is growing increasingly infirm. Mrs. Day is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Boger, pioneer residents of Hartselle, and the widow of the late Mayor J. L. Day who died 16 years ago.
