Should you trade or sell outright?

Your decision to buy a new car sets off a rash of other decisions, not the least of which is what to do with your old car. Selling the car yourself could net you a hundred dollars or more than you would get from a dealer in trade on a new car.

You may survive an auto accident only to die needlessly because of poor emergency treatment. In fact, studies show that from 5 to 18 percent of all car crash victims-- a shocking 3,000 to 10,000 lives-- could be saved each year if adequate emergency medical treatment were available.

YES, YOU CAN GET A GOOD HOUSE FOR YOUR MONEY!

"Why is it that none of those beautiful houses you show are being built in my area?" That's a question we find quite often in our reader mailbox. Basically, the answer is that the prospective home-buyer is caught in a vicious circle.

The solution is a change in all three segments of the circle: innovative builders, venturesome lenders, and families who will not settle for the ordinary, but who will take the trouble to search out quality houses.

PARENTS & SCHOOLS

After the flood: how to get financial help

One of the tragedies of a flood disaster is that regular homeowners and business insurance policies rarely protect you against losses caused by floods. The fact is, insurance companies just could not meet such sudden, widespread losses and still provide everyday insurance at reasonable rates.

Family Adventure Vacations in the South

"Virginia is for Lovers," says the slogan you see everywhere, but Virginia is also for vacationing families who have a thing about history or horses or hiking. The rumpled green heartland of the state, around Charlottesville, is unquestionably one of the most beautiful areas in America-- not beautiful in the flashy, dramatic way that the Grand Canyon is, but beautiful in a gentler, quieter way.
