Clark Howard is a leading consumer advocate and host of "The Clark Howard Show." American business is riding a euphoric high, but with good times come the bad, specifically unscrupulous souls who prey upon unwitting consumers and are looking for an opening to bilk, swindle or entrap. Howard knows who they are and what they can do to honest, hard-working citizens.
I must say - I was a bit annoyed with the length of the 2012-2013 winter. I assume the 2013-2014 winter will bring about a similar attitude. That's why I'm elated to work with YMT Vacations on a 12-day cruise of the Hawaiian Islands. We depart on February 14, 2014 (Happy Valentine's Day!).
I'm one of those dinosaurs who still reads newspapers. I actually have four delivered to my home daily. In addition, as someone who works for a media company that shares a corporate identity with a daily newspaper, I have a vested interest in seeing newspapers succeed (or at least in seeing one local newspaper succeed).
