Heineman is scheduled to hold a news conference Saturday to
announce that he has chosen Les Seiler of Hastings for the vacancy.

Heineman's office says he will officially announce the
appointment Saturday morning at the Hastings Municipal Airport.
Seiler is a senior partner at the Hastings law firm Seiler &
