Bald eagles, ospreys and other birds of prey were practically wiped out until the pesticide, dichlorodi-phenyltrichloroethane (DDT), was banned in the United States in 1972.
The insect-killing chemical was developed for use in agriculture in the late 1940's. No one knew at the time that the most widely-used pesticide, DDT, would ultimately create such a devastating effect on raptor species.

Q. I'm having a devil of time controlling my bladder. Any suggestions?
About 10 percent of men and women over the age of 65 have trouble with bladder control, also know officially as urinary incontinence. Women suffer from this more than men.
During urination, muscles in the bladder contract, forcing urine into the urethra, a tube that carries urine out of the body. At the same time, muscles surrounding the urethra relax and let the urine pass. If the bladder muscles contract or the muscles surrounding the urethra relax without warning, the result is incontinence.
Fair game: The 161st annual Great Allentown Fair continues through Sept. 2, Labor Day, with rides, games, food, exhibits by farmers, gardeners and homemakers and Fairgrounds Grandstand shows. Shows on the headliner stage continue with Austin Mahone, Bridgit Mendler, 7 p.m. Aug. 28; Zac Brown Band, above, 7 p.m. Aug. 29; Luke Bryan, Thompson Square, Florida Georgia Line, 7 p.m. Aug. 30; Toby Keith, Kim Moore, 7 p.m. Aug. 31, and Jeff Dunham, 8 p.m. Sept. 1. The Zac Brown Band is featuring "Uncaged," its fifth album that received a Grammy award for Best Country Album in February.
"The Butler" is an eyewitness to history through the eyes of a White House employee during the presidential administrations of Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan.
In "The Butler" screenplay by Danny Strong (actor, "Mad Men"), the cauldron of the Civil Rights Movement is backdrop for the presidential procession as well as the story of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a fictional White House butler inspired by the real-life Eugene Allen, who was on the White House staff for 34 years.
