Tears are a good thing

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. My eyes are dry a lot. Is this something common when you get older?

If your eyes seem to have become drier than normal to you, you should visit an eye doctor for a check-up.

Dry eyes are common in those older than 50 because our production of tears diminishes as we age. A lack of tears is more common among women, especially after menopause.

The tears film in your eyes has three basic layers: oil, water and mucus. Problems with any of these can cause dry eyes.

Art Museum's SOTA launches 'Luncheon with the Authors'

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 by The Press in Focus

The Allentown Art Museum Society of the Arts (SOTA) presents its inaugural "Luncheon with the Authors" Oct. 4 at Lehigh Country Club, Allentown.

Nationally-acclaimed authors Nell Freudenberger, Bob Spitz and J. Courtney Sullivan will discuss their books, offer insights about the creative process of their writing and respond to audience questions.

Freudenberger, author of "The Newlyweds," has been named one of The New Yorker's "20 Under 40."

De Niro, Pfeiffer all in 'Family'

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"The Family" is a generically-titled film that is anything but generic.

The mob comedy-drama stars the iconic Robert De Niro, in one of his best roles in years, and the magnificent Michelle Pfeiffer, also in one of her best performances.

"The Family" is smart entertainment on the order of "Goodfellas" (1990). In fact, there's a nod in the storyline to "Goodfellas," directed by Martin Scorsese, who produced "The Family."

There's also a sense of "Married to the Mob" (1988) "Analyze This" (1999), and "Meet the Fockers" (2004).

Call it "Meet the Mobsters."

Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, National Canal Museum merge in time for 25th year

In 1988, the United States Congress designated the area from Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County, to Bristol, Bucks County, as the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.

On Aug. 8, leaders of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and the National Canal Museum signed an agreement to merge the two nonprofits to tell the story, "Where America was Built."

"It is time to celebrate all we have done and who we are," said Elissa Garofalo, D&L President-Executive Director.
