The racketeering and drug distribution case against him is progressing. The 53-year old pain specialist is fighting lymphoma.
He's had chemotherapy as part of his treatment.
The Doctor himself did not discuss his health, nor say anything to reporters yesterday.
But his lawyer pointed out that Doctor Knox's hair is coming back. Tony Anderson argued in court again yesterday that the new 300-count indictment ought to be dismissed as an abuse of the grand jury process. The trial is set to begin January 6th.

Virginia's economy may not be getting much worse - but that doesn't mean it's getting better either. In fact, the economy is still too weak to gernerate enough state revenue to meet even a flatlined budget forecast for the current year. Customers at the Department of Motor Vehicles are quickly noticing the new realities of the department. State money is short - and the lines are long.

That's because of the closing of two locations in our area, all centers are shutting their doors on Wednesdays and hours are being cut. Dennis Montgomery visits D-M-V regularly as part of his job. He's in charge of the car fleet at Salem Tools. He went to register two new vehicles last week - but left because of huge lines.

[SUPER=03-Richmond;]


Lieutenant Governor Tim Kaine is introducing a bill to benefit Hunters for the Hungry.
This non-profit group provides donated venison to families in need.
Kaine's legislation would allow hunters to make a two dollar donation to the charity when purchasing their hunting licenses.
[SUPER=@file;]


Since the program was started eleven years ago, Virginia hunters have donated nearly one and half million pounds of venison.
Yet each year Hunters for the Hungry is unable to accept thousands of deer because of a shortage of funds to process the meat.
