The government has laid out some additional claims in its case against pain specialist Cecil Knox and his office manager. Nurse Beverly Boone and her lawyer asked the government to be more specific about the fraud charges against her, challenging the assertion that Boone WAS Dr. Knox' office manager. She was the "nerve center," the prosecutor says, "the decision maker and clearing house for all the offenses...." In a response filed in court today, Patrick Hogeboom maintains Boone's office served as "fraud central." We couldn't reach Boone's attorney.

While it's a way to save money for the struggling airline, it will not mean fewer seats for the passenger traveling out of Roanoke Regional. Even with the change, the amount of seats flying out remains the same. But airport officials say that the perception of regional jet service is a better one. People generally prefer the jets and they help attract more business travelers to an airport.
