Department of Arkansas Heritage Director Stacy Hurst has hired Scott Kaufman of North LIttle Rock as director of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, a division of DAH.

Kaufman comes from UA-Little Rock, where he is director of mail services, a position he has held for eight years. Previously, according to a news release from DAH, Kaufman worked in financial aid and student services. He holds two master's degrees, in public administration and secondary education, from UA-Little Rock, and a bachelor's degree in political science and history.

Kaufman also works part-time at the Firehouse Hostel & Museum in MacArthur Park and is a past board member of the Oakland-Fraternal Historic Cemetery, the news release said.

Kaufman succeeds Interim Director Marion Boyd, who left the agency at the end of July. Boyd succeeded Francis "Missy" McSwain, who headed AHPP for several years.

The AHPP is the state agency that works with the federal government to meet the rules of the National Historic Preservation Act. According to its website, the agency "identifies, evaluates, registers, and preserves the state's historic and cultural resources and seeks to instill a preservation ethic in future generations of Arkansans. The agency also houses the Main Street Arkansas program, which works with local communities to revitalize downtown commercial areas."

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
