Do you need long-term care insurance?

"Not me," you say. You're young. You're healthy. You eat right, exercise, and get regular checkups.

Just a few of the reasons people today are living longer. In fact, since the 1960s, life expectancy has increased between 1.5 and two years each decade. 1

But before you get too caught up in the good news, you may want to think down the road a bit. What are the odds that you'll enjoy this same level of good health when you're 80, 90, or even 100? Especially since approximately 70 percent of people over the age of 65 will require long-term care at some point. 2

With people living longer, protecting your financial assets so

BArT students dig in for a ceremonial groundbreaking of the charter school's planned expansion. ADAMS, Mass. — After 10 BArT students dug a little ceremonial dirt, the rest dug into some very real cake.   On Tuesday morning, the Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School held a groundbreaking ceremony for its long-awaited expansion.   By fall, the 10-year-old school, a former hotel and restaurant, will have added theater space, fitness rooms, a gymnasium and a cafeteria.   Although the expansion will not impact the state-mandated maximum enrollment of 363, it will allow the school to better serve its student population, currently about 325 in grades

UNITY program participants are putting on a pizza dinner to raise funds for Be Like Brit, an orphanage in Haiti. Left, checking over the dinner menu.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts native Britney Gengel was on a service trip to Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, with her college when she sent her mother a text message.

"They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and they work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are all so appreciative. I want to move here and start an orphanage myself."

Three hours later, a massive 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti. More than 100,000 people were killed — including Britney.

More than four years later, the teenagers

Memorial Day ceremonies were held throughout county on Monday, including in Williamstown. More photos here.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Not only did a steady rain Monday morning not deter the festivities at Williamstown, the post commander of American Legion Post 152 incorporated the inclement weather into his remarks.

"As I was marching up the hill, I thought to myself, 'I'm going to call this. I don't want to get wet,' " Ron James told the crowd gathered at Field Park. "Then I thought about the men and the women who served our country, that wallowed in the mud in [World War I's] Flanders Fields, that were in World War II,

You can't keep a good market down, so why is everyone so darn worried about the stock market? Could it be that too much of a good thing may be dangerous to your financial health? If so, someone should tell the bulls.

Truly, no one should be complaining. Here we are at the end of May, normally a month where the markets come under selling pressure, and we are a mere five points away from the S&P 500 Index's all-time high. The contrarian in me says that too many people are waiting for the shoe to drop right now, so it probably won't.

Officially, it is the Memorial Day weekend that kicks off the herd migration from Wall Street's gray canyons and valleys to more amenable

Financial gurus have come up short in explaining exactly why interest rates are going down, and not up, as everyone expected them to do. The same thing is happening overseas. What gives?

Pundits have been trotting out the same old reasons for why rates are declining. Slow-growth economies in North America, Europe and Japan have persisted this year, much to the surprise of everyone. So central banks worldwide are maintaining an easy-money policy, which is driving all interest rates lower. That is at odds with the Fed's view of economic conditions.

If you recall, back in May of last year, the Fed announced that the U.S. economy was gathering so much steam that they had decided to begin
