JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A forest supervisor from Idaho has been named the new deputy regional forester for Alaska.

Becky Nourse (nurse) is scheduled to start in her new job July 28. She said she will be based in Juneau.

Nourse will succeed Ruth Monahan, who retired in early May.

Alaska Regional Forester Beth Pendleton, in a release, said Nourse is well-versed in the issues and lifestyle of Alaska, having spent 14 years of her career on the Tongass and Chugach national forests.

Nourse has been based in Idaho as the forest supervisor for the Sawtooth National Forest. But she currently is on a temporary assignment as acting deputy regional forester for the Intermountain Region in Utah.
