Q: What’s up with the lounging smiley face at Greer City Hall?
A: Before we answer this question, we’d like to say thank you to our readers for submitting questions to the mailbag.
You can rest assured knowing that if you’ve submitted a question, it WILL be answered in an upcoming edition...so please keep them coming.
Q: My husband was recently laid off, and he has $229,000 in a 401(k). He has been told that he should roll it into a hybrid annuity. Is this a good idea?

A: We are convinced that a small green bag has never caused so much of a stir as the one you frequently find in your driveway.
