Speakin’ of Spokane
Editor Steven A. Smith departs Salem, Oregon’s Statesman Journal to become editor of Spokane, Washington’s Spokesman-Review.
By Kathryn S. Wenner
Spokane, Washington's Spokesman-Review gets its first new editor in nearly 20 years as Steven A. Smith, editor of Salem, Oregon's Statesman Journal, fills the slot vacated by Chris Peck last December amid difficult staff cuts (see Bylines, December). "It's really a nifty opportunity for me," says Smith, 52, an Oregon native who is happy to be able "to stay in the region, to stay close to family and friends and still take on a new challenge." He and Peck share similar values, Smith says. "Chris and I are both part of the civic journalism conversation, and we both believe strongly in a strong, community-connected journalism that reflects the complexity of our communities every day. The diversity issues in Spokane are a little different than they are in a lot of places. They're less related to ethnicity than they are to economic demographics. They've got a terrific poverty problem in western Washington and eastern Idaho."###

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet
it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags
early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags
logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
