Dear Carson: My niece is getting married and, due to limited financial resources, the ceremony and reception will be small and modest. This is a first-time bride. Some friends have expressed a desire to give her and her fiancea party. Is it inappropriate to invite people to a party who will not be invited to the wedding? I do not want guests to feel that they have been invited just so they will bring a gift.

It's been said that at least 70 percent of a good paint job is in the preparation. What remains, of course, is the quality of the paint and its application. Buying the least-expensive brand might end up costing more in the long run. Better paints go on easier, cover better and last longer. One of the best ways to determine paint quality is price.

It's about freedom
It is a sad fact of life that some people build things and others try to tear them down.

To live in hope
The world seems much more complicated since Sept. 11. But one thing remains deceptively simple:

Hopes boycott will free up tickets
It's obvious that Martha Burk, chairwoman of the National Council on Women's Organizations, has an agenda aimed at the destruction of the Masters golf tournament. Joe Schmitz, Hephzibah, Ga.

Don't limit God and stay healthy
In response to both Timothy Fellows and Daru Ib-Shamiq regarding religion and medicine, I say: Why do we ever try to or think we can limit God as to how he can heal us? Jacqueline W. Fincher, M.D. FACP, Thomson, Ga.

Effort will damage area charities
Martha Burk, chairwoman of the National Council of Women's Organizations, sure did the Augusta area - and probably a lot of charities - wrong by starting this mess with the Augusta National and Hootie Johnson. Eugene Howard, Jackson, S.C.

Lindsey Graham is no conservative
When I heard that U.S. Rep. Lindsey Graham, R.-S.C., would seek a seat in the U.S. Senate, I thought, "What an outrage." Even more outrageous is that he would imply that he is a "conservative" candidate. Charles Alexander, North Augusta, S.C.

Woman blasts NCWO chief Burk for attack on golf club
Regarding National Council of Women's Organizations chairwoman Martha Burk's stand on women's inability to join the Augusta National: I'm amazed that she represents this fine women's organization in such a manner. Tara Hill, Evans, Ga.

Why Augusta National can't win
The recent demands of the National Council of Women's Organizations have placed the Augusta National Golf Club in a virtually indefensible position. By demanding that women be asked to join the membership, they have opened a situation that the golf club cannot win. Jerry M. O'Connor, Augusta

Demos peril security
Should a chief executive officer have the power to fire or demote poor-performing employees, hire new ones, move workers to where they'll be the most useful, and adjust salary scales?

Fund the museum
Every community worth its salt has a museum and the vast majority of them pay for it out of the local government's general budget. But not in Augusta. Every year the Augusta Museum of History's executive director has to come before the city commission to beg for more money to keep the museum going.

Why blacks deserve reparations
There have been several letters regarding reparations to black Americans. As a young, college-educated black female, I am appalled at the number of white Americans against the idea. I do realize that if it weren't for the harsh treatment of and the aggressive nature in which my ancestors gained their "freedom," it would be a lot easier on me. Nicole Ball, Hephzibah, Ga.
