Bud's View: Looking Back at 2013: Punxsutawney Phil got snowed in

Monday, December 30, 2013 by BUD COLE Special to The Press in Focus

First of two parts

It can't be.

But it is.

And I know I say this every year and it certainly seems to be true, but yet I know it's impossible.

Does each year pass more quickly than the previous one?

How could I possibly be writing my 15th annual "Bud's View: Looking Back" column? Didn't I just write about looking back at 2012 a few months ago?

Healthy Geezer: The skinny on obesity surgery

Monday, December 30, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Good Causes: Benefits for a better future

Monday, December 23, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN Focus Editor in Focus

The year 2013 was one of galas and fund-raisers galore for good causes in the Lehigh Valley.

While it's not known if the number of annual benefits for nonprofits in the Valley is more than those held each year in other areas in the United States of comparable geographic area and population, it seems as though on any given weekend, there are one or more benefits to attend in the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton region.

The events range from formal, such as the Allentown Symphony Ball...
