Only 40 percent of those who retire find that their quality of life improved. That’s because the majority of Americans, especially men, fail to understand that retirement can have a sudden and stressful impact on their lives and especially their marriage. Don’t let this happen to you.

Remember that throughout history, most people worked until they died or were physically or mentally unable to hold down a job. It is only recently that people had the luxury of choosing to retire. For many, it comes down to the dollar and cents ability to have saved enough money to live on through their remaining years. But just because you have the money doesn’t mean that you should.

Summer is officially here on Saturday, even if it feels like we didn't have much of a spring. Up here in my corner of the Berkshires, school is still in session for another week, which means I'm not in the "oh my God it's summer what do I do with the kids" mode for another week. Is a shorter summer a good thing or a bad thing? Only time will tell.

But there are some fun ways to embrace the beginning of summer this weekend, most of them in Great Barrington on Saturday morning, June 21 ... so if you're ambitious, try to hit them all!

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Great Barrington Fair Grounds, Berkshire Co-op Market is throwing a family fun bash at the Great

Recent Mount Greylock Regional School graduate Mia DiSantis tells an audience of middle school students about her charitable organization.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mia DiSantis says she knew for a long time that she wanted to make a difference in the world.

But it's a big world, and she had no idea where to start.   Then she and her mother came across the 2009 ABC News documentary, "A Hidden America: Children of the Mountains," and Mia realized that the world is not so big after all -- even if its problems are.   "You always hear about Haiti, and they have so many service trips to places like that, but this was something I never heard

New life will be breathed into the Clark Art Institute's decorative art pieces when the museum re-opens on July 4.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Everyone at the Clark Art Institute is excited about all the new things for visitors to see when the museum reopens on July 4. But part of the new experience will be the things one doesn't see.

"The quality of the glass ... it's the kind of effect people won't notice, but they'll perceive it," Kathleen Morris said in a recent tour of the Clark's 1955 "white building."

"The new cases are bringing the collection to the fore so it's not competing with reflections in the
