"The co-mingling of staff and expenses [between Haven and the record company] raises red flags, particularly when Medicaid or Medicare funds are involved," Blumenthal said. "If assets of a health care corporation have been wasted or squandered, it certainly is of interest to my office and our investigation of potential fraud."
Actually, I have been gratified by the cooperation and receptiveness of both the board itself and the school administration, particularly Dr. Garcia, in working with me.... Our relationship, I would say, is a positive one now.
Allegations that a Connecticut nursing home operator let bills go unpaid while using company funds to launch a Nashville record label have drawn the attention of country music star Travis Tritt.
Tritt's manager, Duke Cooper, told The Associated Press...that Tritt is prepared to protect his interests by taking legal action, if needed, against Raymond Termini, the president and chief executive officer of Tritt's label, Category 5 Records.
Termini is also chief executive officer of Haven Healthcare, a Middletown-based company that runs 25 nursing homes in New England, including 15 in Connecticut. Haven has been fined more than 45 times in three years by state and federal health agencies for poor patient care.
New Scientist reports a worrying new variant as the cosmologists claim that astronomers may have accidentally nudged the universe closer to its death by observing dark energy, a mysterious anti gravity force which is thought to be speeding up the expansion of the cosmos.
The damaging allegations are made by Profs Lawrence Krauss of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and James Dent of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, who suggest that by making this observation in 1998 we may have caused the cosmos to revert to an earlier state when it was more likely to end. "Incredible as it seems, our detection of the dark energy may have reduced the life-expectancy of the universe," Prof Krauss tells New Scientist.

In his "Hillary", dedicated to the Democratic front runner, Haggard sings: "This country needs to be honest/ Changes need to be large/ Something like a big switch of gender/ Let's put a woman in charge."
