Williams reports that someone suggested to Bozeman that he place "a recliner next to the stack of weekly papers for eager Conecuh Countians who can't wait to get home to read their hometown paper. Alabama newspaper man Bill Beckner even suggested adding a coffee pot."
Beckner, former senior vice president of Boone Newspapers, told Williams, "Nothing better than a weekly newspaper hot off the press."
