What the Enquirer does for you
As your hometown newspaper, we strive to be the heartbeat of Hartselle and the surrounding communities. We want to be your source of information about what is happening or has happened. We want to make sure you are aware of changes that will affect you.
Also we want to be your source for photo albums and scrapbooks, as we document local activities. We like to see our photos and stories cut out and attached to refrigerator doors. Nothing pleases us more than for someone to call and say, “I heard my grandkids picture was in the paper can I still get a copy of that” or a similar request.
We want to report on all of the big events in your life. When you are born, we will publish your picture in the newspaper for all to see. We will list the proud parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters.
You’ll be recognized for making the school honor roll, as well as when you hit home run or score a touchdown in youth sports. Reaching your high school graduation will earn your picture in print as well.
Your college news will be printed or, if you choose to serve your country in the armed forces, we will keep you covered as well. When you pop the question or get asked the question, we will let all know of the upcoming nuptials.
You will want all of your family and friends to circle that date on their calendar. Also after you have said “I do,” the wedding photo and information will be placed in circulation for all to see.
As the circle of life continues we will print your child’s birth announcement as well as your grandchildren’s. Your major milestone birthdays will be welcome by your newspaper. Life will continue to move forward until the appointed time that you “change modes of transportation.” When that part of life occurs the newspaper will print one final note of closure for you.
The Enquirer can keep you covered from your humble beginnings throughout your time here on earth; and the best part is we will not charge you one dime for all of this.
Thanks to our loyal advertisers we are able to provide your coverage as well as all of the other news items at no cost to you the reader. Please support our advertisers after all they are bringing “you” to the world.
Randy Garrison is the president and publisher of the Hartselle Enquirer.
