Make your trees storm-proof

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Let's hope this October there are no storms that cause power outages in the Lehigh Valley because of falling or uprooted trees.

We wouldn't want three times to be the charm.

In 2011, it was the Halloween nor'easter, which broke records for snowfall in 20 cities along the East Coast, Oct. 28 - Oct. 30. Up to 16 inches of snow fell in Pennsylvania.

Last year, it was Superstorm Sandy, which hit coastal regions Oct. 29, with more than 100 deaths and homes and property...

Keller Dover (Jackman) is a middle-class father living in western Pennsylvania who owns his owns remodeling business. He and his wife, Grace (Maria Bello), have a teen son, Ralph (Dylan Minnette), and young daughter Anna (...

THEATER REVIEW

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

The Pennsylvania Playhouse (TPP) production of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" creates a conundrum: Is it this community theater or regional theater?

Yes, TPP's "Spelling Bee" is that good. You might say it's letter-perfect. Wordsmiths should not miss "Bee," which spells out many unusual words (syzygy, cenacle, elanguescence), has a plethora of puns and a dollop of double-entendres.

TPP "Spelling Bee" director Ralph Montesano, with Chip Rohrbach as assistant to the...
