NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Adams girls basketball seventh- and eighth-grade travel team in on a roll having won nine out of their last 10 and currently sits at 26-12 on the season. 
This past weekend, it went 4-1 and achieved its goal of bringing the Berkshire County title back to Adams. 
It opened the county tournament on Friday night by beating Mount Greylock, 49-14. Saturday morning, it defeated Dalton, 49-36. Saturday evening, it suffered its lone tournament loss to the Pittsfield Boys and Girls Club, 38-36, on a last second layup.

The win was Adams' fourth tournament championship of the season.
In the fifth- and sixth-grade division, North Adams' girls beat Williamstown in the final to win the Southern Division title.

How Do You Cook a Turkey?: From the Mouths of 5-year-olds

By Mrs. Poirot's Kindergarten ClassGuest Column

Kindergarteners at Hoosac Valley Elementary working diligently at home to share their Thanksgiving recipes. 

ADAMS, Mass. — Each year, the kindergartners in Robin Poirot's class at Hoosac Valley Elementary School offer their estimations on how long it takes to cook a turkey — in sizes ranging from three to 100 pounds.

Their Thanksgiving recipes are always amusing and sometimes enlightening, particularly the choices of stuffing, but we must strongly caution against following any of their directions as a matter of public health.

Well, first you would have to go to the store and grab a 10-pound turkey. After I bring it home in a bag, I would put it in the oven for only 3 degrees for 5 minutes. That will definitely turn the color brown. That is how you will know  that it is ready to eat! When it cools, we eat it with lots of mashed potatoes on the side. YUM!

I would buy our 100-pound turkey at the new Adams Market. It would be so heavy that we would have to pull the turkey and drag it to the car just to make it there.
