The gym ceiling is being painted. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A mild autumn has helped move along outside work at the new Taconic High School.   As December sets in, concrete is still being poured. The mild weather has allowed workers to put sidewalks all around the school.   A parking lot in the north and roads in and out have all received the first layer of blacktopping. If the weather hadn't been as mild, that outside work would have waited until the spring.   Inside, the building is already prepared for the winter. Construction managers had a schedule calling for the building to be buttoned up in November, and heating pumped in to keep the building warm for

ADAMS, Mass. — The kindergarten classes of Heather Emerson and Robin Poirot at Hoosac Valley Elementary are again offering their knowledge on where to get a turkey how to cook it.    From Cheerio stuffing to proper time and temperature — anywhere from 4 minutes to six days at at least 6 degrees — these children offer a range of recipes for a Thanksgiving turkey.    The photos in the story are from Poirot's class. The main photo at the top is from Emerson's class.        When I buy the turkey, it will be 2 pounds and about as big a Pilgrim kid. Mommy will cook it because she cooks everything. She is a good cook. She
