The paper was and is known for its total disdain of modern design (every headline is the same 14 points in size) and its absolute dedication to local interest (the only way O.J. would get in the Gleam is if he was accused of a murder in Guntersville). Sam Harvey, who has succeeded his late father as editor, writes fondly of his parents backgrounds and of the influences that shaped the paper. But primarily, his is a study in why community journalism both defines its hometown and is defined by it.) 1
