NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The holiday season is here! Plan a comfortable and safe holiday for the four-legged members of your family with these following tips:

•  Decorate safely. There are a variety of decorations that can cause problems for your pet. Light cords, when chewed or frayed, can cause severe burns or electrocution. Ribbons and tinsel can also lead to trips to the emergency room, often resulting in complicated surgery or even death. Prevent these disasters by keeping decorations out of your pet's reach.

•  Mind your holiday plants. Mistletoe and poinsettia are poisonous, and ingested pine needles can cause digestive tract blockage. Keep your pet away

A doctor shortage in America has been predicted ever since the first Baby Boomers started to retire.  Now, that shortage is coming into question as technology and non-doctor, medical professionals are stepping forward to fill the gap.

The Association of American Medical Colleges predicts the nation will need 90,000 doctors by 2020 and 130,000 physicians by 2025. It is understandable how that organization arrived at that number. Just compute the proportion of Americans who will reach the age of 65 between now and 2030. Add to it the number of Americans newly insured, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, and you come pretty close to those numbers.

However, those figures simply represent

"So in that sense we are still figuring that out."

  Lloyd and Harry haven't learned anything in 20 years - thank goodness.

It takes some pretty smart writing to make the title characters appear as stupid as they are in "Dumb and Dumber To." There is wit in the Farrelly Brothers' reprise to their 1994 imbecility, an explorative zeal and talent for delving far more dopily into ignorance than any farce has dared to stumble. It's almost as difficult and accomplished a task for us intelligent folk to shed our self-respect for 110 minutes and enjoy the guilty thrill of laughing aloud at the goofiness purveyed.

Everyone's a winner at the pie auction. See more photos here.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The bidding, as usual, was fierce and unpredictable at the annual Oh Be Thankful Pie Auction on Tuesday night.

The annual event at the American Legion auctioned off some 40 Thanksgiving pies (and one cheesecake) to raise funds for local charities and food pantries.

Established by Gabriel Abbott Memorial School Principal Heidi Dugal more than a decade ago, the pie auction has become a community service project of the Florida school's 8th grade. Kristy Keeler, Jenah Janz and Krista Furlon did the event as part of their Project 351 Fall Tribute.

The big winner of the night was a cherry

Thanksgiving will be observed on Thursday, Nov. 27. The day is a national holiday inspired by the first Thanksgiving dinner shared between the Pilgrims and Wampanoags in 1621 at Plymouth. The living history museum Plimouth Plantation continues the tradition each year with a recreation of the event in which visitors can participate.

Thanksgiving was first federally recognized by proclamation in 1863 by President Lincoln at the height of the Civil War. It did not become codified as a national holiday until 1941, when President Roosevelt signed a law setting it as the fourth Thursday of November. Canada holds a similar celebration on the second Monday in October.

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — According to Dee Dee Rintoul, director of the Emergency Department at Fairview Hospital in Great Barrington, the most common reason for Thanksgiving ER visits are indigestion and gall bladder issues from all the rich food.

So Deb Coons and Robert Hoechster, who run Fairview's Operation Better Start and Mindfulness Based Eating Programs, have offered five ways to avoid indigestion and those unwanted extra pounds this holiday season:

1. Only eat when you are hungry. If you’re not physically hungry, consider if you feel like eating social reasons. If it’s because you’re stressed, skip the treat and try venting to a friend.

2. Stop when
