Daily Briefing, 5/26/2009

Good morning everyone! After a brief vacation (your resident blogger was out of the office) we are back and ready to blog once again! Here is what we have for you today.

Aside from a few relatively minor problems, Bethlehem Sands' seemed to have a very good first weekend, with as many as 70,000 visiting the casino on Sunday. A study is also in the works to determine the impact of the casino traffic on Bethlehem and surrounding municipalities. Meanwhile, Mayfair in Allentown appears to have had a successful four days - so successful that it is looking to expand. WFMZ notes that Veteran's Organizations are struggling this memorial weekend, as their finances take hits over the recession.

In national news, President Obama appears to have narrowed his potential Supreme Court nominees down to four individuals - judges Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Wood, Solicitor General Elena Kagan and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. Meanwhile, GM has until June 1 to complete restructuring and still has a long way to go before it gets there.

It's a slow news day as we come off of the Memorial Day weekend, so that is all that we have for you today! Have a good one and we'll see you later.
