Governor Renames Shriver, Eastwood to State Park Panel

Schwarzenegger's brother-in-law and the filmmaker-actor were originally appointed to the state commission in 2001 by Davis.

From a Times Staff Writer

SACRAMENTO Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday reappointed his brother-in-law, Robert Sargent Shriver III, and filmmaker-actor Clint Eastwood to four-year terms on the state Park and Recreation Commission.

Both Shriver, 49, a Democrat and brother of First Lady Maria Shriver, and Eastwood, 73, a Republican and former mayor of Carmel, were first appointed to the advisory commission by former Gov. Gray Davis in 2001.

The panel's nine members serve without pay but are subject to confirmation by the state Senate.

Shriver and Eastwood are expected to be approved easily. Their first-term nominations were both confirmed 34 to 0.

The governor also reappointed farm and winery operator Gail Kautz of Lodi and Mayor Sophia Delia Scherman of Elk Grove, both Republicans, to the commission.

Santa Monica resident Shriver, a former producer of television programs on the Special Olympics, is an attorney and president of RSS Inc., a Beverly Hills music, film and philanthropic company.

In his first outing as a television producer in 1987, Shriver, whose mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founded the Special Olympics, produced a prime-time feature on the organization's World Games. He did a similar program for the BBC and produced a long series of "Very Special Christmas" music recordings that have raised more than $55 million for the program for disabled youths.

Eastwood won an Academy Award for best picture and best director with 1992's "Unforgiven." He was nominated in the same categories this year for "Mystic River."

He appeared in television's "Rawhide" series in the late 1950s and '60s and went on to roles in more than 50 movies. He has also directed or produced more than 20 films.
