Valley native returns to lead marketing outreach of the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley

The way to United Way for Lenore Mohr was from Parkland High School to Hollywood and back to the Lehigh Valley.

Mohr, named Director, Marketing & Communications, United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, in mid-January, says her work for the organization is a dream-come-true for her.

"I felt I was guided into this position and that it was meant to be for me," says Mohr of Bethlehem, who returned to the Lehigh Valley after 20 years working in the Hollywood movie and media business.

Animation, actors enliven 'The Smurfs 2'

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"The Smurfs 2" is an amusing animated and live action feature film with excellent character voices, jokey dialogue and terrific animation that should be enjoyed by the pre-10 year-old set and hold the attention of most parents or guardians.

The characters were created by Peyo, aka Pierre Culliford, a Belgium comic-strip artist-writer. The name Smurf is a Dutch language translation of an invented French word, Schtroumpf, a made-up word for salt.

Fall the season for landscape by design

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 by The Press in Focus

The reason that fall is such a great planting season is that the soil is warm and there is usually a long period of moderate temperatures from September until about Thanksgiving in the Lehigh Valley.

It's true that many plants aren't producing much shoot growth at this time, but the roots of many plants continue to function long after shoots appear dormant. Sure, we'll have a frost in mid-October, but most years this is followed by many days of frost-free temperatures.
