Growing Green: light-bulb moments

Thursday, May 10, 2018 by LEHIGH COUNTY EXTENSION in Focus

When you hear the word “bulb,” what is the first flower you think of: tulip, daffodil, crocus, snowdrop or other fall-planted bulb?

Can you name your favorite summer bulb? These include begonia, caladium, canna, dahlias, gladiola, lilies of many varieties, oxalis, and many more.

Bulbs is a term used loosely to include corms, tubers, tuberous roots, rhizomes, and true bulbs. Bulbs are grouped broadly into spring-flowering (January through May) and summer-flowering (June through September) plants.

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 by CAROLE GORNEY in Focus

It might seem incongruous to call a theatrical production about dying a feel-good play, but that is a perfect way to describe Civic Theatre of Allentown’s latest offering, “Tuesdays with Morrie,” through May 20, Alumnae Hall, Cedar Crest College, Allentown.

Written originally as a best-selling memoir by sportswriter Mitch Albom, then turned into a TV movie and later a play by Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher, “Tuesdays with Morrie” celebrates life and death as natural progressions.

Movie Review: Avenge of the movie reviewer

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Spoiler Alert: This movie review is going to avenge “Avengers: Infinity War.”

The hit movie, which broke domestic and international opening weekend movie box-office records, and continues to set records, is a bloated, computer-generated-imagery mess.

The Mavel Cinematic Universe is a very crowded universe in “Avengers: Infinity War,” with just about every character known to superhero fans in the movie, short of Inspector Gadget. Yes, I know he’s not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Lucky him. It wouldn’t have surprised me if Jar Jar Binks showed up.

Respectfully Yours: office attire

Friday, May 4, 2018 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

Dear Jacquelyn, With summer approaching, I could use suggestions regarding appropriate summer attire for work. I would like to put away the dark pants and wear some dresses. How can I update my office wardrobe while taking care to not overdo it?

Dear Reader,

It’s important to strike a balance between comfortable and appropriate when it comes to work attire.

The first thing you’ll want to do is consult dress code of the company. Businesses have a variety of policies regarding summer office attire.
