Q: My husband and I are active duty military stationed outside Washington, D.C. We’re completely debt-free and have finished your entire Baby Steps plan, but last month our paid-for rental house in Florida burned down. It was empty at the time, so no one was hurt, and we got a check from the insurance company for $165,000.
Q: What’s up with the traffic lights near downtown? Why are they taking so long?
A: If you’re a regular commuter through downtown Greer, you’ve probably noticed a change in the wait times for several local traffic lights.
Maybe you haven’t noticed, but you will now that we’ve said something.
Q: What’s the status of Bass Pro in Greer?
Q: What do you call it?

Q: My husband and I are debt-free, and we have an emergency fund of six months of expenses saved. We’d like to buy a home in the $250,000 to $275,000 price range in the near future, and we plan on saving $60,000 for a down payment. It should take a little less than two years to save that much money.
Q: What major changes should we anticipate during Family Fest with all of the construction going on?
A: If you haven’t heard, the 35th annual Pelham Medical Center Greer Family Fest is this weekend, set for May 3-4 in downtown.
