Posted By on Tue, Feb 10, 2015 at 4:16 PM

Gov. Asa Hutchinson named leaders of three state agencies today.

* ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY: Becky Keogh will take over for an interim director who succeeded Teresa Marks. A former deputy director of the department, she recently has been regulatory and environment manager for BHP Billiton, the energy giant, in Houston. Hutchinson noted her experience as both a regulator and industry veteran.

* DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS: Lt. Col. Matt Snead will be director. Cissy Rucker had served through the end of the Beebe era. He is state public affairs director for the Arkansas National Guard and will continue his guard service.

* SECURITIES DEPARTMENT: B. Edmond Waters succeeds Heath Abshure, who was not asked to stay on. He was a branch manager for A.G. Edwards, the brokerage firm, in Florida and worked before that for himself in Helena-West Helena. He is a graduate of UALR.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
