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 ...

Arc of justice bends like a rainbow

Jeb Bush wants to share

The most recent time I had seen Jeb Bush speak in San Francisco was in January, when he addressed the National Automobile Dealers Association. It is hard to imagine a group more invested in the old-school economy. It was a friendly crowd. The former Florida governor seemed comfortable - and boring. I left feeling as if I'd spent an hour listening to a human BarcaLounger.

Benefits for divorcees

My wife is starting to get suspicious. Every day, my inbox is crammed with emails from strange women around the country! I don't mean strange as in unusual, but rather as in unfamiliar to me. A good percentage of these women are asking about potential benefits they are due as a wife or widow on an ex-husband's Social Security record. So today, let's concentrate on benefits due divorced women. By the way, the same benefits would be due to dependent divorced husbands. It's just that all my emails come from divorced women, so I am addressing ...
