Bee taps another ex-Timeser

The Sacramento Bee has created a new post of Public Editor and filled it with Armando Acuņa, the paper's sports editor. He used to be Sacramento bureau chief for the L.A. Times. In the new job Acuņa replaces former Bee ombudsman Tony Marcano, who also had worked at the LAT before joining the Bee. Marcano recently left for an editing job in Florida.
