Area High School''' is located at 50 Trexler Avenue in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, USA. Kutztown is sandwiched between Allentown (Allentown, Pennsylvania) and Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania) in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It was built in 1976 and has not since been remodeled or rebuilt. Also, as part of the "one-to-one laptop initiative" every student has received an Apple MacBook. The school has numerous sports teams and clubs activities in which they rival Berks County schools Fleetwod, Reading Central Catholic, and Brandywine in addition to Lehigh Valley schools like Parkland and Allentown Central Catholic. The school is infamous for a notorious group of thirteen students who violated its technology code of conduct and were subjected to external disciplinary action. A city in Berks County. A few Jewish immigrants settled here before 1847, when Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania) became a city. In 1864 a cemetery plot was acquired in the southern part of the city, and in the same year Congregation Oheb Sholom was founded with about fifteen charter members, most of them South-Germans. In 1884 a house of worship, located on Chestnut street, near Pearl street, was bought from the Evangelical Church, and, after being rebuilt, it was dedicated July 31, 1885, by Isaac M. Wise. A rabbi and Sabbath-school teacher was engaged; and Reform service of a moderate type was instituted. In 1897 Rabbi Julius Frank, introduced the ''Union Prayer Book'' and full Reform service. In 1898 the congregation bought another cemetery at Shillington, three miles from the city, the old one being vacated, and about sixty bodies were removed to the new burial-ground. Connected with the congregation are the Ladies' Hebrew Aid Society and the Ladies' Auxiliary. In 1794, Ellicott accepted a commission from Pennsylvania to plan the city of Erie (Erie, Pennsylvania). He spent the next two years with this task, plotting a road from Reading, Pennsylvania to Presqu'Isle (Presque Isle State Park), where the city was to be built, and supervising the construction of Fort Erie. birth_date - 1 align "left" New York-Philadelphia-Connecticut align "left" New York (New York City)-Newark (Newark, New Jersey), NY-NJ-CT; Philadelphia (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), PA-NJ-DE-MD; Allentown (Allentown, Pennsylvania)-Bethlehem (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) PA-NJ; Lancaster (Lancaster, Pennsylvania), PA; Pottstown (Pottstown, Pennsylvania), PA; Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania), PA; Trenton (Trenton, New Jersey), NJ; Hightstown (Hightstown, New Jersey), NJ; Vineland (Vineland, New Jersey), NJ; Poughkeepsie (Poughkeepsie, New York)-Newburgh (Newburgh, New York), NY; Bridgeport (Bridgeport, Connecticut)-Stamford (Stamford, Connecticut), CT; Danbury (Danbury, Connecticut), CT-NY; Hartford (Hartford, Connecticut), CT; New Haven (New Haven, Connecticut), CT; Norwich (Norwich, Connecticut)-New London (New London, Connecticut), CT; Waterbury (Waterbury, Connecticut), CT; Springfield (Springfield, Massachusetts), MA-CT 29,028,337 - thumb 250px left AmeriGas, Ypsilanti, MI (Image:AmeriGas_Ypsilanti.JPG) Under the UGI Utilities, Inc., UGI serves 544,000 natural gas and 60,000 electricity customers in eastern and central Pennsylvania, including customers of UGI Penn Natural Gas (formerly PG Energy) and UGI Central Penn Gas (formerly PPL Gas Utilities).

by the Puerto Ricans. Amongst the states with a large Puerto Rican presence are New Jersey, Florida, Illinois and California. The 1970s saw what became known as reverse-migration. Many Puerto Ricans returned to the island to buy homes and to invest in local businesses. Puerto Ricans have made many important contributions to New York and the society of the United States in general. They have contributed in the fields of entertainment, the arts, music, industry, science, politics and military. Puerto Rico Herald Other Puerto Ricans have moved from New York to settle in smaller cities throughout the Northeast. For example, in 2009 Puerto Ricans alone made up 29.1% of Reading, Pennsylvania's (Reading, Pennsylvania) population, Government Census 1 which was over 53% Hispanic, and 25.0% of Lawrence, Massachusetts' (Lawrence, Massachusetts) population, which was over 70% Hispanic.

was founded by Christopher March and James Dracoules. The first comic book title to appear under the Imperium imprint was the horror anthology book ''Trailer Park of'' ''Terror.'' Four issues of ''Trailer Park of Terror'' were published featuring black and white interior artwork. PA 120 was '''U.S. Route 120''' until ca. 1967. US 120 was initially planned in 1926 as an Erie (Erie, Pennsylvania)-Philadelphia (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) route, but was truncated to Ridgway (Ridgway, Pennsylvania)-Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania) in 1927. The road east of Lock Haven (Lock Haven, Pennsylvania) became U.S. Route 220 (U.S. Route 220 (Pennsylvania)), U.S. Route 15 (U.S. Route 15 (Pennsylvania)) and U.S. Route 122 (U.S. Route 122 (Pennsylvania)) ca. 1935; this alignment is now roughly followed by US 220, Interstate 180 (Interstate 180 (Pennsylvania)), PA Route 147 (Pennsylvania Route 147) and PA Route 61 (Pennsylvania Route 61). PA 724 shares stretches of road with PA 345 in Birdsboro (Birdsboro, Pennsylvania), PA 10 in Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania), and US 222 Business in Shillington (Shillington, Pennsylvania). 1871 I Central Pennsylvania (Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania) I Bethlehem (Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem) Diocese of Pennsylvania was divided in 1871, with the western portion named Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania) made the see city. The see was moved to Bethlehem (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) in 1890. In 1904, the diocese was divided, with the eastern part keeping the name Central Pennsylvania and the western half taking the name Diocese of Harrisburg. The eastern diocese changed its name to Bethlehem (Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem) in 1909, and Harrisburg changed its name to Central Pennsylvania beginning in 1972. Therefore, the original and current dioceses of Central Pennsylvania are not in fact the same jurisdiction. (History of Central Pennsylvania) To this day the Sturgis family still bakes pretzels using the same recipe Julius used to start his pretzel bakery in 1861. Marriott Sturgis, born in 1910, was Julius's grandson. He was nicknamed "Tom Sturgis" because he worked alongside his uncle Tom Keller and they had similar baking styles. Tom's family moved to Reading (Reading, Pennsylvania), Pennsylvania where Tom continued to work in pretzel bakeries, eventually he — with his brother Correll — opened their own pretzel bakery in 1936 called "Sturgis Brothers". However, Tom had to close down the "Sturgis Brothers" due to the drafts for World War II. 97.5 started life, initially on January 10, 1949, then officially on April 19, 1949, as WTOA. It was owned by the Mercer Broadcasting Company, which was a wholly owned subsidiary of the ''Trenton Times (The Times (Trenton))'' newspaper. WTOA started out broadcasting from 3pm to 11pm, with an ERP (Effective radiated power) of 14,500 watts. Its original coverage area reached as far north as Brooklyn, New York and as far west as Reading, Pennsylvania. 97.5 became WPST on September 13, 1971. The WPST calls originally stood for "Passport Stereo Trenton," a slogan of the station at the time. Also, the WPST calls were on a Miami TV station now known as WPLG. WPST is known for its mainstream CHR (Top 40) format, which they've had for many years. Tom Taylor was the PD who launched the format in the mid 1970s, and did mornings on the station until 1987. In August 1975, owner Herb Hobler hired Phil Gieger as the General Manager. Along with Tom Taylor, they revamped the station and coined the phrase, "From The Shore To The Poconos, The Best Music Is On The FM 97.5 WPST." They initially established an Adult Rock (Album-oriented rock) format, and by the Fall of 1975, the station took off and eventually became the number one station in the market. Some WPST DJs over the years included Lee Tobin, John Mellon (aka Walt Ballard), Ed Johnson, Doug James, John Brown, Eddie Davis, Trish Merelo, David Cooper, Andy Gury, Jeff "Woody" Fife, Dan Kelly, Brian Douglas, Mel Toxic, Kris Gamble, Jay Sorensen, Bob Sorrentino, Dave Hoeffel, Tom Cunningham, Dave Moss, Michelle Stevens, Pat Gillen, Eric Johnson, Mark Sheppard, Andre Gardner, Phil Simon, Mike Kaplan, Steve Trevelise, Joel Katz, Rich DeSisto, Jason Barsky, Scott Lowe, Joe LeCompte, Jeff Ryan, Mark Vanness, Gabrielle Vaughn and Chris Puorro. Caricatures of the WPST DJs, circa 1977, can be found here. On February 14, 2005, at 5pm, 97.5 "switched" frequencies and formats with 94.5 WTHK (defunct), and adopted its current adult top 40 format. This officially "killed" the hot adult contemporary format on Philadelphia's WMWX, which became adult hits two months later and the following year getting the current calls WBEN-FM. Nielsen BDS & Mediabase still reported them as a contemporary hit radio station until 2008 (2008 in radio). The move left WIOQ from Philadelphia as the only mainstream top 40 station in both areas of Trenton & Wilmington, Delaware (served by WSTW). In August 2005, 97.5's city of license was changed from Trenton to Burlington. Before moving closer to Philadelphia, the 97.5 transmitter was located in downtown Trenton, New Jersey.

Reading, Pennsylvania

'''Reading''' ( Located in southeastern Pennsylvania, it is the principal city of the Greater Reading Area.

The city, approximately halfway between Philadelphia and the state capital at Harrisburg (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania), is strategically situated along a major transportation route from Central to Eastern Pennsylvania, and lent its name to the now-defunct Reading Railroad, which transported anthracite coal from the Pennsylvania Coal Region to the eastern United States via the Port of Philadelphia. Reading Railroad is one of the four railroad properties in the classic United States version of the ''Monopoly (Monopoly (game))'' board game.

Reading was one of the first localities where outlet shopping became a tourist industry. It has been known as "The Pretzel City" because of numerous local pretzel bakeries. Currently, Bachman, Dieffenbach, Tom Sturgis, and Unique Pretzel bakeries call the Reading area home.
