'Life of the Party': Celebrates the Joys of Mediocrity
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:43PM / Friday, May 18, 2018
If you redo in black and white director Ben Falcone's "Life of the Party," wherein suddenly divorced Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) returns to college after dropping out 20 years ago, you've epitomized any number of escapist comedies that populated theaters during the Great Depression.    Light, frothy confections that specialized in proving that one can indeed turn lemons into lemonade, they featured silly but likeable characters who, through some unseen benevolent power or just sheer luck, were able to navigate a series of farcical and convoluted perplexions.   Even the villains in such fare are rather lighthearted foils as opposed to full-bodied miscreants,

The Independent Investor: Are Americans Saving Enough for Retirement?
By Bill Schmick,
05:00PM / Thursday, May 17, 2018
If you simply read the headlines, you would assume that over half of Americans aged 55 and over, have no savings as they approach retirement. That's a dramatic statement, but is it true?   Most statisticians derive that data by adding up those who have an IRA or similar tax-deferred savings account such as a 401(k). The latest data compiled by the Federal Reserve Bank's Survey of Consumer Finance indicated that 53 percent of households, age 55 to 64, had some savings in those tax-deferred accounts. So, yes, by that standard, almost half of all Americans fail the savings test.   But what about all the people who work for the government? There are 22 million workers toiling
