Nixon names Sikeston man to Mo. Conservation panel

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon has appointed a southeast Missouri businessman to the state Conservation Commission.

Don C. Bedell is a 68-year-old Republican from Sikeston. If confirmed by the state Senate he would serve on the four-member commission until July 2015.

Nixon announced the appointment Thursday, praising Bedell as a longtime leader in Missouri's conservation community.

Bedell owns B&B Boats and Bikes in Sikeston, as well as B&R Marine and Cycle in Batesville, Ark. He's also the founder of a nursing home management company.

Bedell is a life sponsor of Ducks Unlimited and a life member of Quail Unlimited and Safari Club International. He's been a sustaining member of the Conservation Federation of Missouri since 1988.
