Wisconsin’s grocery dictators

Republicans may like to rail against big government. But here in Wisconsin - where conservative lawmakers just introduced a bill to dramatically restrict what people can buy with their own food stamps - Republicans want to cook up a new kind of nanny state.

SF: Repeat offenders, come & stay

San Francisco is not likely to change its ill-conceived sanctuary-city policy because City Hall must bow to progressives who don't believe in deporting undocumented immigrants with serious criminal records. Activists such as Angela Chan of the Asian Law Caucus believe that Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was right to release Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez rather than turn him over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as requested. They don't care that Lopez-Sanchez had been convicted of seven felonies and deported five times before he was arrested for the July 1 shooting death of Kathryn Steinle.

Health information: What does your doctor share?

DEAR DR. ROACH: If I share confidential information with my doctor, how much of that information is reported to my insurance company? I am required to sign the HIPAA form that allows information to be shared in order to provide treatment. What are the limits and boundaries of insurance companies' knowledge? Your answer determines how honest I can be with a doctor. -- S.F.L.

The nanny tax: Don’t overlook it

If you have a household employee, the nanny tax rules apply to you. Essentially, a household employee is somebody that does work in or around your home and is considered an employee. An independent contractor (such as yard maintenance, housecleaners, and the like who have their own equipment and supplies, control how the work is done, and perform similar services for other homeowners) is not your employee and does not fall under the nanny tax rules. However, if you have a home worker such as a health aide, private nurse, or caretaker and you control their wages, hours, and working ...

Sore jaw suffer seeks sleep solution

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have been living with TMJ pain on my right side. I believe my situation is unique in that I experience the pain only at night, initially when lying on my right side. While the level of pain is not excruciating, it's more than sufficient to ruin any effort to sleep. Over the years I have tried every over-the-counter pain medication, with no effect. I have been to numerous doctors who specialize in TMJ disorders. I have spent thousands of dollars on bite splints, none of which made any difference. I even tried acupuncture. I have ...
