Q. My doctor ordered a TSH test. What is that?
The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the middle of the lower neck. It produces hormones that control metabolism, which are the chemical processes cells in the body perform to keep us alive.
Summer annual grasses continue to be pervasive weed problems in many turfgrass areas throughout the Lehigh Valley. The most common summer annual grasses in turf include crabgrasses (Digitaria spp.) and goosegrass (Eleusine indica). Satisfactory control of these weeds can be obtained by cultural methods, provided the life cycle of the plant is understood.

"Despicable Me 2" has nearly all the things you would want to see and hear in an animated feature family comedy.
It has distinctive and charmingly-rendered characters, voice talent that is very expressive, an interesting and entertaining storyline, an overall attention to detail and, most importantly, a sense of fun.
"Despicable Me 2" ("DM2") is co-directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud.
Renaud is a Parkland High School, Class of '85, graduate who attended the Baum School of Art where he received a $1,000 scholarship.
