The Iowa Board of Medicine has named one of its staff members as the interim head of the organization following the unexplained departure of its former executive director. Kent Nebel, director of legal affairs of the Iowa Board of Medicine, was named interim executive director of the state medical board during a brief meeting with no public discussion Thursday morning. Board members voters voted unanimously — with two members absent — to instate Nebel. Nebel, who has been the board’s legal adviser for nearly 20 years, will serve as interim while the board conducts a nationwide search for a permanent executive director. The board’s previous executive director, Mark Bowden, retired at the end of last July — the same day he was reinstated to the position by board members — following a back and forth scenario that has not been explained by officials. Bowden, a longtime former editor of The Gazette, was placed on administrative leave for undisclosed reasons for about a month before the board gathered to discuss his status in predominantly closed sessions on July 26. The next morning, the board unanimously voted to reinstate him to his former position but indicated later that afternoon a desire to reconsider the action . Bowden submitted his retirement letter to the board that day. “I want to thank you for your confidence in my ability to continue administering the agency where I have served honorably for the past 10 years,” Bowden wrote. “Unfortunately, over the past eight months I have been hindered in my work by what I perceive are substantial deficiencies in service and a lack of adequate support from the Department of Public Health and the Department of Administrative Services.

The Latvian-based carrier entered the UK market in April to much fanfare, offering cheap fares from Stansted and Birmingham to North American cities including New York, Washington and Toronto, as well as many European destinations. Primera only launched in the UK this yearCredit:Primera But numerous setbacks followed. In May, poor sales forced it to drop its route from the Midlands airport to Boston and reduce capacity to New York’s Newark. The New York route was later cut entirely, along with services from Birmingham and Stansted to Toronto, with the airline blaming a delivery delay from Airbus. Now Primera has scrapped all services from Birmingham, both long- and short-haul, from the end of October until further notice – putting the holiday plans of thousands of Britons in peril. “Primera Air is ceasing operations from Birmingham Airport to Alicante, Tenerife, Las Palma, Reykjavik and Malaga due to capacity reduction,” the Icelandic-owned airline said. It is also stopping flights to Palma and Barcelona from September 3. On the Primera website, searches for flights to destinations including Tenerife, Malaga and Gran Canaria from Birmingham were not possible beyond October. It is not immediately clear whether the blame lies with the airline or airport but a spokesperson for Birmingham, the UK’s seventh busiest airport, said: “We regret that, for operational reasons, Primera Air is unable to continue flying from Birmingham Airport this winter. This is disappointing, especially as there is so much demand for these destinations. “We are pressing the airline to provide refunds as quickly as possible to allow passengers to rebook with other carriers from Birmingham. We are very sorry for those people whose plans have been disrupted.” The renaissance of Britain's regional airports – and the curious destinations they now serve Primera said that all affected passengers had been informed of the cancellations and that it was “committed to minimising any disruption and...
