WAL-MART CLOSES STORE

Two years ago, Thumbtack - a startup that connects consumers with local contractors -conducted a survey to see what they thought of proposals to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10, as per President Obama's bid "to give America a raise."

Avoid excess refined sugar, diabetes or not

DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband's recent lab work showed that he had a glucose reading of 72 (82-115 is considered a healthy range). Is this a precursor to diabetes? Should he be staying away from refined sugar? His father had diabetes and had his leg amputated. I do not want this to happen to my husband. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to keep him in good health. -- D.H.

Dark horse Paul Ryan

As Republicans prepare to cast their first presidential ballots in Iowa and New Hampshire, the field remains dominated by "outsider" candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, while establishment favorites Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Marco Rubio have been unable to advance to the finals. Will the Republican kingmakers and consultants who picked every nominee since Reagan step aside to let the grassroots, also known as the "base," work its will this year?

Democrats’ debate notes

Fighting off the temptation to fall asleep during the most recent Democratic - and Donald Trump-less -debate, I wrote these thoughts, observations and questions I hoped would be asked but were not. I end with my opinion about who won the debate - and who lost. No fair cheating and going right to the end.

David Bowie, icon or abuser?

When David Bowie died after a very private fight with liver cancer, obituary writers churned out words like "icon" and "legend" and "subversive." Despite a life of very fluid explorations of musicality and sexuality and spirituality, the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano celebrated Bowie as "never banal," displaying an "artistic rigor" which seemed to contradict the sexually "ambiguous image" he presented to "attract the attention of the media."
