A note about ‘Mary Beth's Money’

Some readers have questioned why last Sunday's debut of a series about a West Columbia mother of two getting help from a financial planner did not include some additional information about her family.

Mary Beth Henry is divorced and receives $175 a week in support that pays for child care.

The information was not included because it was not addressed during her initial meeting with the planner.
