Members of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission voted unanimously today to name Jeff Crow the agency's new director.

Crow, of Bismarck, has been deputy director chief of staff since 2014. He started his career at Game and Fish in 1986 as a wildlife officer, but left in 1996 to work for the Arkansas State Police. He retired from the ASP in 2011 and began working at the Criminal Justice Institute. He returned to Game and Fish in 2012 to head up its law enforcement division, and was made deputy director in 2013.

He replaces Mike Knoedl, a 31-year employee of Game and Fish who will retire this July after nearly five years as director. Others who applied for the job were Assistant Deputy Director Ricky Chastain and agency counsel Jim Goodhart. The agency did not conduct a national search.

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
