Growing Green: Buy houseplants with care

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 by LEHIGH COUNTY EXTENSION Special to The Press in Focus

Picture a tropical paradise: sun warming the earth, a fresh moist breeze blowing in from the ocean. A refreshing early morning shower passes. Dappled shadows appear under tall palms as the sunshine returns to dry the rain.

Well, that pretty much describes the environment of most of our houseplants in their natural state: warm temperatures, moist breezes and plenty of bright light.

It's no wonder that adjusting to our household environments is quite a challenge for tropical plants. And it's amazing how many of them can flourish if given the basic care that suits their needs.

Bringing 'Memphis' to State Theatre

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 by ELIZABETH OUELLETTE Special to The Press in Focus

"First and Foremost, it's about the music," says Colin Byrne, cast manager for the Tony Award-winning, "Memphis," to explain the popularity of the Broadway hit that comes to the State Theatre for the Arts, 453 Northampton St., at 3 p.m. Feb. 9.

Byrne, an Easton native and 2000 graduate of Wilson Area High School, says the musical evokes the spirit of the 1950's when music bridged the gap between blacks and whites.

"It's inspired by true events when radio deejays were able to help overcome prejudice through music," Byrne explains.

Bud's View: The birds of winter

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 by BUD COLE Special to The Press in Focus

Providing backyard seed feeders help species survive

My wife, Bev, and I feed the birds year-round, thus enjoying their daily visits to our feeders. The bird visits not only provide us with hours of enjoyment, they furnish us with a natural calendar marked by their arrivals and departures.

Although many Canada geese have become year-round residents, migrating geese and other bird species that do not stay in the Lehigh Valley for winter provide a sign that fall is in the air. Many species follow a specific time schedule to migrate south.
