Tuesday, November 12, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Wild walnuts, butternuts and hickories can be collected in November (as well as October) and enjoyed during the winter months.

There are many varieties of nut trees that have been recognized as outstanding when compared to most wild nut trees. These produce larger nuts and are easier to crack out than their smaller, wild relatives.

Movie Review: Grumpy old 'Grandpa'

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"Next time, let's go to lunch and forget it when there's a bad movie," said an elderly woman to her two elderly female friends sitting in...

Classical Views: In a word: Midori

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by DIANE WITTRY Special to The Press in Focus

The famous violinist Midori is coming to Allentown to solo with the Allentown Symphony Orchestra and the first question of the day is: Does anyone know her real last name?

Midori has been a remarkable violinist from a very young age. She took the route that is more often used in the rock and pop market of performing under just one name, Midori. For many years, few people knew that her full name is Midori Goto.
