Rodale and Rodale Family Galleries at the Baum, 510 Linden St. Allentown. The paintings of Evans, a guest and spotlight artist Oct. 19 at The Baum School of Art Annual Gala, are inspired by the landscape of the Susquehanna River area where he lives with his family near Wrightsville, York County.

Turf luck: Grubs do damage

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by The Press in Focus

It's a good time to scout turf areas for white grub populations. You may not have seen many of the adult beetles, but conditions were ideal during egg-laying, especially during a year like this one when soil moisture has been plentiful.

You may find Oriental beetles, Japanese beetles, masked chafers, Asiatic garden beetles, or Green June beetles, depending on your location. These beetles lay their eggs in the soil and successful hatches depend in part on soil moisture. We have had plenty of that.

New wrinkles for aging skin?

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Q. Is there anything I can do about all these wrinkles?

The common causes of wrinkles include genetic influences, normal aging, sun exposure and smoking.

People who smoke tend to have more wrinkles than nonsmokers of the same age, complexion, and history of sun exposure. Cigarette smoking causes biochemical changes in our bodies that accelerate aging.

Here's some advice from the American Academy of Dermatology about reducing the signs of aging:

A romance made on Broadway

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 by DIANE WITTRY Special to The Press in Focus

On stage and in real life, songs unite couple

Romance: the stuff that fairy tales are made of. We all seek it, want it, dream about it. Romance is that elusive thing that we search for to enrich our lives. It is almost as if without it, we are not quite whole.

To begin the fall season, the Allentown Symphony Orchestra, "A Broadway Romance" concert, 8 p.m. Sept. 7, Miller Symphony Hall, 23 N. Sixth St., Allentown, brings us a story of romance on stage and off stage.
