On July 17, 1996, about 8:45 pm, TWA flight 800 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Long Island shortly after takeoff from Kennedy International Airport. The airplane was on a regularly scheduled flight to Paris, France. On board the airplane were 212 passengers and 18 crew members. The airplane was destroyed, and there were no survivors. Montoursville lost 21 of our friends and family on that day. You are missed by many . . . 16 students - Jessica Aikey, Daniel Baszczewski, Michelle Bohlin, Jordan Bower, Monica Cox, Claire Gallagher, Julia Grimm, Rance Hettler, Amanda Karschner, Jodi Loudenslager, Cheryl Nibert, Kimberly Rogers, Larissa Uzupis, Jacqueline Watson, Monica Weaver, and Wendy Wolfson; and their chaperones - Debbie Dickey (French teacher at the Montoursville Area High School), Doug Dickey, Carol Fry, Judi Rupert (high school secretary), and Eleanor Wolfson. ...

WHAT IS THE SUMMER SOLSTICE?
The timing of the solstice is not based on a specific calendar date and time. It depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator.
The word "solstice" is from the Latin "solstitium", from "sol" (sun) and "stitium" (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time (and again at the winter solstice).
In temperate regions, we notice that the Sun is higher in the sky throughout the day, and its rays strike Earth at a more direct angle, causing the efficient warming we call summer.
This summer solstice is the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year.
At the winter solstice, just the opposite occurs: the Sun is at its southernmost point and is low in the sky. Its rays hit the Northern Hemisphere at an oblique angle, creating the feeble winter sunlight.

WHY DOESN’T THE SUMMER SOLSTICE FALL ON THE SAME DATE EACH YEAR?
The summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere ranges in date from June 20 to 22. This occurs in part because of the difference between the Gregorian calendar system, which normally has 365 days, and the tropical year (how long it takes Earth to orbit the Sun once), which has about 365.242199 days. To compensate for the missing fraction of days, the Gregorian calendar adds a leap day about every 4 years, which makes the date for summer jump backward. However, the date also changes because of other influences, such as the gravitational pull from the Moon and planets, as well as the slight wobble in Earth’s rotation.

DID YOU KNOW?
Question: Why isn’t the summer solstice—the longest day of the year—also the hottest day of the year?
Answer: Earth’s atmosphere, land, and oceans absorb part of the incoming energy from the Sun and store it, releasing it back as heat at various rates. Water is slower to heat (or cool) than air or land. At the summer solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives the most energy (highest intensity) from the Sun due to the angle of sunlight and day length. However, the land and oceans are still relatively cool, due to spring’s temperatures, so the maximum heating effect on air temperature is not felt just yet. Eventually, the land and, especially, oceans will release stored heat from the summer solstice back into the atmosphere. This usually results in the year’s hottest temperatures appearing in late July, August, or later, depending on latitude and other factors. This effect is called seasonal temperature lag.
Question: What is Midsummer Day (June 24)?
Answer: Around the time of the summer solstice, this day was the midpoint of the growing season, halfway between planting and harvest.

SEASONS ON OTHER PLANETS
Mercury has virtually no tilt (less than ⅓0th of a degree) relative to the plane of its orbit, and therefore does not experience true seasons.
Uranus is tilted by almost 98 degrees and has seasons that last 21 years.

FUN FACTS
In Sweden, people celebrate the Summer Solstice by eating the first strawberries of the season.
In ancient Egypt, summer was the start of the new year. The rising of the star Sirius roughly coincided with the summer solstice and the annual flooding of the Nile River.

SUMMER SOLSTICE FOLKLORE
"Deep snow in winter, tall grain in summer." – Estonian proverb
"Easterly winds from May 19 to the 21 indicate a dry summer."
"If there are many falling stars during a clear summer evening, expect thunder. If there are none, expect fine weather."

    History of Paulhamus Litho Inc.

    Robert C. Paulhamus founded Paulhamus Litho in 1957. It began as a one-man print shop in the basement of a hardware store in Montoursville, PA. He started out with a foot treadle letterpress, an old-model 11″x17″ litho press, a hand-cranked cutter, a foot-powered stapling machine, and three cabinets of used movable type.

    By 1959 the company was operating on a full time basis, gradually updating machinery and employing people skilled in many fields of the graphic arts.
    In 1961 a new building was erected at 1128 Broad Street. As the company grew two additions increased the size of the building to accommodate more equipment.

    In 1975 Paulhamus Litho, Inc. moved to its present location on Old Montoursville Road. Over the years, it has increased the number of employees from nine to 29 and is constantly adding to its design and printing capabilities to maintain its leadership for unbeatable quality and service.
