A house-moving crew from New Hampshire decided to delay the relocation of Mather House, left, until Wednesday because of the wet weather.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Safety concerns brought on by the overnight mix of snow and rain in the region forced the postponement of a historic house move on Monday morning

Dr. Eric White, left, and hiking friend Billy Goat at this year's Gathering in Williamstown.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — More than 400 hikers gathered gathered quietly in the Carmelite Fields over the Columbus Day weekend.

If you happened to drive by fields off Oblong Road, you would have come across an array of bright colors from the hundreds of lined up tents. Surrounding these tents, you would have found bearded travelers sharing tales from the road.

These elusive visitors were not typical leaf peepers or tourists, but members of the Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association. The 1,800 member group has been silently entering and exiting areas throughout the country like this

Stocks have had a wonderful run since mid-October's swoon. The S&P 500 Index is now up over 10 percent from its bottom. As we approach another record high, expect some backing and filling before moving higher. I wish I could say the same about the price of oil.

The price of oil is the main topic of conversation among traders and investors. Typically, as the price declines further, Wall Street energy bears vie for headlines by predicting even worse times ahead for energy. Technicians are now considering $40 a barrel as a real possibility and others are jumping on the band wagon as oil broke $75 a barrel on the downside this week.

Methinks the selling is overdone at least over the

Popcorn Column

  Matthew McConaughey travels through space and time to save humanity in 'Interstellar.'

I contemplated the critiquing task that lay ahead with trepidation. Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," taking us once more into the breach of apocalyptic rumination and adventure, boasted a daunting length of 169 minutes. That's 2.81 human hours. I feared I'd be an old man when I exited ... the world will have changed; no one would know me, nor I them. But then this is what I signed up for when I took the hypocritical oath at Olde Ivy Film Criticism College. Maybe

In Beijing this week, the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit is winding down. As representatives from its 21 member nations return home, one thing is certain.  China has become America's main rival for influence in that region.

Depending on who you talk to, China's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is expected to overtake that of the United States sometime in the next five years. Some argue that it may be sooner than that. But while we Americans might fret over falling to second place economically, China's communist leaders could care less. They are eyeing a far larger prize — control of much of the world's natural resources and the means to transport

Not all of the homes are in salable condition, however.   The homes were left behind by
