Movie Review: 'Spider-Man' amazes yet again

Monday, May 12, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

How amazing is "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"? Pretty amazing.

Thanks to terrific casting, "TASM2" pulls you in and makes the characters and storyline stick.

Andrew Garfield ("The Social Network," 2010) is a slender, tentative, conflicted Peter Parker-Spider-Man.

Growing Green: Rhododendrons will dazzle your garden

Monday, May 12, 2014 by LEHIGH COUNTY EXTENSION Special to The Press in Focus

Is the name ericaceae familiar to you?

No?

It's really only a fancy title for the King and Queen of shrubs: rhododendrons and azaleas. Azaleas are members of the genus Rhododendron. These plants are all related.

There are no clear-cut definitions for distinguishing between the plants we commonly call rhododendrons and azaleas. "Rhododendrons" are usually evergreen and "azaleas" usually lose their leaves in fall. There are exceptions to this general rule.
