Debt Adviser: Consolidate $ 30K credit card debt?
News from The Republic:

Dear Steve: I have $ 30,000 in credit card debt that I want to pay off. I have had trouble juggling what is paid when, so I missed some payments. This has affected my credit score. I can make the payments, but the interest rates are high. I want to consolidate into one payment, so I know when it is due and can put more down each time.

A man from Pauline will spend the next 18 months in prison after he used a company credit card for personal expenses.

United States Attorney Bill Nettles announced that U.S. District Judge Henry Herlong sentenced 49-year old Ray N. Sims to 18 months in prison and ordered him to pay $ 280,000 in restitution after he pled guilty to wire fraud.
