A look back

Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
Interest in the upcoming Hartselle city elections is increasing.
1950 -July 8, Hartselle's Mayor John Burleson is certainly not afraid of hard work. Local residents frequently see him mounted on the city grader, steering the ponderous machine about town. He is also known to pitch in on the city garbage disposal detail when one of the regular workers has to call in sick.
2000 -July 9, Clifton P. Knight and Samie Wiley are intensifying their campaigns to succeed incumbent Hartselle Mayor Robert Stephenson. The voters will decide who will lead this city when they go to the polls on September 12.
1940 -July 10, The Conway Bill went into effect in Alabama today. It requires mayor and council runoffs where candidates fail to receive majorities in the first balloting. Also, aldermen must now run for specific places.
1967 -July 10, Hartselle has a new park and recreation board appointed by the city council.
1973 -July 10, Unbeknownst to most residents, local water supplies have been fluoridated since last January by authorization of the city council.
1944 -July 11, W. Tom Stewart, prominent local businessman who is now serving as Hartselle's acting mayor, is at present waging an active campaign for a full term in this office.
1990 -July 11, Hartselle Mayor Scotty Maples ('59) and Catherine Ann Sims ('56), a teacher at Hartselle High School, were pictured in today's Enquirer jitterbugging at the weekend MCHS reunion. They were among more than 300 graduates of the fifties and guests who attended a sock hop at Sparkman Civic Center gym.
1968 -July 12, Three men are contending to be mayor of Hartselle-John D. Long, Melvin Black, and Grady J. Long.
1937 -July 13, Hartselle Mayor John Pruitt Hodges celebrated his 57th birthday today. Mayor Hodges was born in 1880.
1910 -July 14, Tomorrow a dog law for the town of Hartselle will go into effect. The mayor and board of aldermen have decided that all dogs roaming the street should be put to death. Where there is good reason to believe that a mad dog has bitten a dog, and the owner fails to kill him, the dog will be killed at once and its owner fined at least $50.
