  ADAMS, Mass. — There are many ways to cook a turkey, and the kindergarten classes at Hoosac Valley Elementary School annually send iBerkshires their own ideas on how much turkeys weigh, who cooks them and how long it takes, along with their own somewhat exotic recipes.    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. Please note, these recipes are only for your reading pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving!   Teacher Robin Poirot started this fun project some years ago so we start off with what her

Pfizer provided data that it says shows the vaccine was safe for those ages and 90.7 percent effective in
