  3. Save your refund? That's the REAL no-brainer

    It's no secret that we Americans can be a nation of dim-bulbs when it comes to spending our money, which we so often do in breathtakingly stupid ways. During 2012, for example, we spent $11.8 billion — yes, billion with a 'b' — on bottled water.

  4. Is Land the answer in Michigan?

    Robert Griffin, now 90, who rose to be second in the Republican U.S. Senate leadership, was defeated in 1978. Since then, only one Michigan Republican, Spencer Abraham in 1994, has been elected to the Senate and for only one term.

    Dear Dr. Roach: I am a female, 50 years of age and I smoke less than half a pack of cigarettes a day. I recently found out that I have blood in my urine.

My doctor said that I could have a kidney stone or some kind of infection. I have an appointment with a urologist next month. What should I expect?
