Gov. Mike Beebe named Steve Cook, of Malvern, to serve as a commissioner of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Cook replaces Craig Campbell of Little Rock. Release on the jump.

LITTLE ROCK - Governor Mike Beebe has named Steve Cook of Malvern as the newest commissioner of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

“Steve was imbued with a philosophy of conservation as a young man, and has never wavered from his dedication to that cause,” Governor Beebe said. “I am confident that the will work to protect fish and wildlife and their habitats for both current and future generations.”

Cook, 49, was born and raised in Hot Spring County, and grew up learning to hunt and fish along the Ouachita River. He has been involved with Ducks Unlimited for more than 30 years, serving previously as the Arkansas state chairman. Currently, he is a regional vice-president for the national organization. Cook is a member of the Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever, and other conservation causes.

In addition, Cook has served on the executive committee of the Arkansas State Police Foundation and as a longtime commander of the Hot Spring County Sheriff’s Office’s Reserve Deputies.

Cook, whose term will expire July 1, 2018, replaces Craig Campbell of Little Rock.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
