J.R. Howard to head State Police

  • J.R. HOWARD
Gov. Mike Beebe's office has announced that the governor will announce his choice to head the State Police Monday morning. The position is open because of Winford Phillips' retirement.

My money is still on J.R. Howard, 63, a retired trooper. He's a former U.S. marshal, a former state Crime Lab director and served 33 years with the State Police, including as commander of the Law Enforcement Operations Bureau. The federal and crime lab jobs came by appointment by Republican executives, by the way. Howard has some Searcy background in common with the governor, I'm told. His full name, by the way, is Robert G. Howard Jr.

Democrats made gains in governorships and legislatures, too. But then, there's Arkansas:
