Make your trees storm-proof

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by The Press in Focus

Let's hope this October there are no storms that cause power outages in the Lehigh Valley because of falling or uprooted trees.

We wouldn't want three times to be the charm.

In 2011, it was the Halloween nor'easter, which broke records for snowfall in 20 cities along the East Coast, Oct. 28 - Oct. 30. Up to 16 inches of snow fell in Pennsylvania.

Last year, it was Superstorm Sandy, which hit coastal regions Oct. 29, with more than 100 deaths and homes and property destroyed.

Will three times be the charm or the alarm?

Acclaimed soloist, works will open Allentown Symphony classical season

Revelry /'re-vl-rç/ noun 1. lively and noisy festivities.

Healthy Geezer: Treatments available for dry eyes

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Second of two parts

Tears are necessary for overall eye health and clear vision. Dry eyes are common in people older than 50. A lack of tears is more common among women, especially after menopause.

The treatment for dry eyes depends upon the cause.

First, physicians have to determine if a disease is the underlying cause. Then, the disease is treated.

If a medicine you're taking for another condition is causing dry eye, your doctor may recommend switching to a different drug.
