Chairwoman of The Board
The Pulitzer Prize Board elects Sandra Mims Rowe, editor of Portland's
Oregonian, as its new chair.
By Kathryn S. Wenner
Sandra Mims Rowe, editor of Portland's Oregonian, becomes chair of the Pulitzer Prize Board, succeeding Los Angeles Times Editor John S. Carroll. "All it requires is that you try to lead or manage...the incredibly interesting and challenging conversations and observations of the members of the Pulitzer Board," Rowe says of the position, awarded by seniority. Now in her ninth and final year allowed on the board, Rowe, 54, has had to recuse herself from some past decisions--while she's been its editor, the 350,000-circulation Oregonian won one prize in 1999 and two in 2001, and has been a finalist four other times. After seven prizes were awarded this year to the New York Times, some in the journalism community suggested that adjustments be made to give small and midsize papers a better shot (see Free Press, May). Rowe thinks that would diminish the prizes' value. "It's not, 'Well, let's make sure everybody gets an award,' " she says. "We do think that small papers tend to do excellent work that in some years is going to beat the very best work...of the best largest newspaper."###

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.
