'The Only Living Boy in New York': What This World Needs Now
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:50PM / Thursday, August 24, 2017
Call me a hopeless romantic. It's my excuse for liking and recommending to kindred spirits director Marc Webb's decidedly imperfect, melodramatic and oft soap-operatic "The Only Living Boy in New York."    My justification is in service to the rather dire straits in which our nation currently finds itself. Quite plainly, to coin a phrase, what this world needs now is love, sweet love. And while this coming-of-age tale doesn't completely fill said need, it does supply that second-best commodity: sappiness.    It's sophisticated sappiness, but sappiness all the same.   In cosmopolitan Manhattan, Thomas Webb, the twenty-something son of elite,

Can You Save for College and Retirement?
12:47PM / Thursday, August 24, 2017

Few of us have unlimited financial resources — which means that almost all of us need to prioritize our financial goals. Consequently, you'll have some decisions to make if you’d like to help pay for your children’s college educations someday while, at the same time, saving for your own retirement.

Your first step in addressing these objectives is to maintain realistic expectations. Consider the issue of paying for college. Right now, the average four-year cost (tuition, fees, room and board) is about $80,000 for in-state students at public universities and approximately $180,000 for private schools, according to the College Board. And these costs are likely to keep

Lawrence Lowers Course Record at Stamford Valley
06:11PM / Wednesday, August 23, 2017
STAMFORD, Vt. -- Matt Lawrence this month broke the course record at Stamford Valley Golf Course with a 9-under-par round of 27 on the nine-hole course.   Playing from the white tees, the Drury High School graduate lowered by two strokes the record of 29 set by Sean Cota in 2015.   The record stood at 31 for more than three decades, a mark set by Bob Sherman, who carded that score from the blue tees in 1982.   Two weeks after breaking the course record for a full nine holes on Aug. 7, Lawrence recorded a hole-in-one on the 230-yard, par 3 seventh hole. His shot was witnessed by Larry Chenail and Reggie Roy.   It was the second ace in three days at the course.   On
