Garcia-Quintana

South Carolina Democrats were right in recently criticizing Gov. Nikki Haley for her refusal -- she later relented -- to oust a member of her re-election committee who had ties to the Council of Conservative Citizens, a far-right group with severe overtones of racial bias.

Couple unsure if they should put themselves first

Dear Annie: I am 73, and my wife is 68. We've been married 36 years, and we are healthy, active churchgoers. My wife had two young children when we married, and our son, "Cal," is now 34. We have helped all three of our kids financially, as well as with babysitting, yard work, etc. And we are frugal, partly so we can leave as much money to the kids as possible.
