    Friday, November 21, 2014 6:00 AM

Don’t shed crocodile tears if you don’t make time to shop local. I have zero patience or sympathy for someone who shops at their “favorite store” once per year and then is shocked and dismayed when it disappears.

    A friend told Eugene Meyer he is coming up on a professional trifecta. That makes it sound as though the longtime Greater Des Moines civil servant and economic-development facilitator is gambling, and in a way he is. He’s gambling that he doesn’t get buried with work.

    As a small business owner, Chuck Gassman is used to dealing with complexity and making tough decisions. But he says the most confusing issue he’s ever dealt with is sorting through the new health insurance landscape, even after attending four or five training seminars.
