LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe has named a new director for the Arkansas Heritage Department.

Beebe on Friday named Martha Miller of Little Rock to the post. She replaces Cathie Matthews, who retired at the end of the year after 15 years as agency director.

Miller served previously as deputy director for the Department of Arkansas Heritage Museums. She has also worked as an attorney and lobbyist.

Beebe says Miller has strong experience with the department and with state government.
