He’ll Bee There

David Holwerk, one-time editorial page editor of the Lexington Herald-Leader, gives up his job as editor of Duluth, Minnesota's News Tribune to return to leading the editorial page, this time at the Sacramento Bee. After starting the interview with AJR by quoting California's own Merle Haggard to describe his condition after a three-hour meeting ("My mind ain't nothin' but a total blank/I think I'll just stay here and drank"), Holwerk gets serious. "If you were designing an editorial page job to take advantage of what I know how to do," he says, "this would be pretty close to it." Holwerk, 54, gained his chops writing 700 editorials in nine months while freelancing for the then Lexington Herald in the 1970s. After three years as a political writer and state capital bureau chief, he became editor of the Herald-Leader's editorial page in 1983. "A lot of what we did was writing about state government and state politics," Holwerk says. Known for his emphasis on heavily reported editorials, Holwerk says he plans to make the Bee's editorial page "must-reading for anybody who wants to know what's going in on California government and politics." To do that, Holwerk says, "you have to write closer to the news than most editorial pages do. You have to do original reporting, take a lot of initiative...[and] value initiative and getting it first and getting in the paper on time as much as you value thoughtfulness and other traditional values."###

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.
