Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer speaks at Memorial Day services. See more photos from the event here. This Memorial Day, Mayor Linda Tyer put on a commemorative bracelet featuring the name of Marine Capt. Francis E. Visconti with the date of Nov. 22, 1965.   The bracelet was her mother's and it was supposed to be worn until the serviceman whose name is inscribed returns home, or his remains do.    At age 2, her father was deployed to Vietnam but she was too young to understand exactly what that meant. But a few years later, when she was age 6 or 7, she felt the "sad tug" at her heart.    "My mom and I were watching TV. There was video footage of

One of the interactive music machines by New Orleans Airlift. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Blinking lights, strange sounds, searing words, twisted trees.    The contemporary art that's been largely confined to the campus of Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art is being loosed upon the city it calls home this summer.    Work began last week in preparation for Sunday's grand opening of Building 6, a monumental renovation that doubled the amount of gallery space and made Mass MoCA the largest contemporary art museum in the world. The installations are in conjunction with some pop-up retail, signage and landscaping meant to direct museum patrons beyond the 16-acre

Wilson Building.   Thompson's brevity on this day is understandable. He's been talking about what the doubling of gallery space at

@theMarket: Markets Climb Higher

In the absence of any earth-shaking news, stocks tend to follow the recent trend. That trend, since the election has been up, so ... The question to ask: when we can logically expect that trend to change?   As readers may recall, my target for the S&P 500 Index is somewhere between 2,443 and 2,475, which I expect we will hit before the end of the second quarter. This week, we broke 2,400, regaining everything that was lost in last Wednesday's 2 percent downdraft. Now, that 2,400 price level should act as a support for the bulls.   "Are you still bullish?" asked one of my clients yesterday.   "That depends upon your time frame," I
