After four decades, C.W. Nevius has departed to, as he says, sit on the sofa and empty the dishwasher.
Congrats to Steven Boyle, the big winner in the Videolicious contest, for the unique “Cooking with Steve”; and to Reid Sams for his poignant entry lamenting that everyone thinks he’s Shay Quillen. Well done, Shay!…
We dedicate this edition of Shopnotes to the memory of our friend and colleague Jillian Sullivan, who brightened the newsroom every day.
Legendary former Chronicle news editor Jack Breibart paid a surprise visit to the newsroom, where he had not set foot since the day he retired in 1994.
We hear that part of the deal that wooed the inimitable Jaxon Van Derbeken off to TV-land was an honest-to-God personal wardrobe budget, a New York fashion makeover and free tuition to TV charm school in Texas (good luck with all that, TV people).
Shopnotes are back! If about the Chronicle, bring scoops and all the gossip that’s fit to print to Curiouser and Curiouser in the newsroom.
