Becoming more aware of his father's past and looming death, Lemon grows bolder and decides to reclaim his job as editor of the small town paper, the New Hamilton Daily. In doing so, he inadvertently starts a relationship with the owner's youngest daughter, Natalie, a very inexperienced reporter. In an attempt to keep her from returning to college, he has her investigate a story involving the town's church, which burned down years prior.
