Akron's Daily Miracle begins with the death of the heir to John S. and James Knight's newspaper empire and ends with the demise of Knight Ridder Newspapers but also with a note about how the Knight spirit lives on in Akron and elsewhere. The Beacon Journal staff discuss how they came together to produce the Pulitzer Gold Medal-winning series A Question of Color; what it was like to walk behind Akron's Lebron James in the parade of champions in Cleveland; and the impact of being the largest city in American without a local TV station. In between is a collection of essays from those who produced the news in the Rubber City, including international best-selling authors Thrity Umrigar and Regina Brett and popular columnists Bob Dyer and Stuart Warner, written to remind readers of the value of excellent local journalism.
