House Speaker Paul Ryan Announces He Will Retire in 2019 to ‘Devote More of His Time’ to Family

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday told his House Republican colleagues that he is retiring and will not seek re-election in November.

Ryan’s counselor Brendan Buck announced the news in a statement on Wednesday, saying: “This morning Speaker Ryan shared with his colleagues that this will be his last year as a member of the House. He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January.”

“After nearly twenty years in the House, the speaker is proud of all that has been accomplished and is ready to devote more of his time to being a husband and a father,” the statement continued. “While he did not seek the position, he told his colleagues that serving as speaker has been the professional honor of his life, and he thanked them for the trust they placed in him. He will discuss his decision at a press conference immediately following the member meeting.”

Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, has been a member of Congress since 1999 and became House speaker in 2015 after running to replace then-Speaker John Boehner.

President Donald Trump reacted to the news on Twitter, tweeting that Ryan is “a truly good man” who will “leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question.”


Rep. Darrell Issa of California told CNN that Ryan told House members he wants to be more than a “Sunday dad” to his children, sons Samuel and Charles and daughter Elizabeth.

According to CNN, sources familiar with the situation said Ryan also noted that he was planning to retire after this Congress and “didn’t think it was fair to his district or the GOP conference to run for re-election only to leave right after.”

Heidrick & Struggles has been retained to search for a successor to helm the country’s largest big and tall men’s retailer. Candidates from within and outside the company will be considered. Levin, 66, has said he will be available to provide support during the transition period.
The company made the announcement at the same time it reported a fourth-quarter net loss of $ 3.3 million as compared to net income of $ 1.8 million in the same period last year. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA was $ 5 million compared to $ 10.8 million in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $ 17.1 million, down from $ 31.6 million in the prior year.
Comparable-store sales increased 4.3 percent in the quarter and total sales were up to $ 135.5 million from $ 122.6 million last year.
Levin attributed the earnings decline to an increase in marketing expenses and said the company would cut back on its store openings to only three stores in fiscal 2018 as it seeks to lower capital expenditures. The company also said Jim Davey, a former Timberland executive, has joined DXL

Aretha Franklin Says She’ll ‘Retire’ After Releasing Her Upcoming Album

Aretha Franklin has said she plans to retire, but not before she releases her next album in the fall.

“I must tell you, I am retiring this year,” the legendary singer told Detroit’s Local 4. “I will be recording, but this will be my last year in concert. This is it.”

The “Respect” singer expressed her excitement about the new album ― set for release in September ― telling the outlet she “can’t wait to get in the studio.” On top of that, the Queen of Soul plans to tour with the album (on select dates) for about six months. 

By the sound of it, “retirement” seems to be a loose term for Franklin, who also admitted she’ll do “some select things” here and there. Most of all, though, she just wants to spend time with her grandchildren. 

The music icon said the announcement is bittersweet for her because she’s been in the industry for so long, but it appears she’s looking forward to slowing down.

“I feel very, very enriched and satisfied with respect to where my career came from, and where it is now,” Franklin told Local 4. “I’ll be pretty much satisfied, but I’m not going to go anywhere and just sit down and do nothing. That wouldn’t be good, either.” 

Bless you, Aretha Franklin.
