Daily Briefing, 8/9/10

Good morning everyone!  Here is today's Daily Briefing.

Hamilton Street in Allentown is being regularly patrolled by Allentown police officers on bike patrol - officers who hope to make the city safer and change the perception of crime in the downtown.  The article also quotes Leslie Suhr, the Main Street Manager for downtown.  At Victaulic, members of the Steelworkers union rejected the latest contract offer by the management.  Planet Snoopy will be coming to Dorney Park.  The attraction will be an $8 million project. 

WFMZ runs a story on the hopes that states are pinning on casinos, noting that states are relying on them to help fill massive budget holes.  President Obama touted the effect that health care reform has had on medicare, noting that it will extend the program for many years.  A new report shows that 21.5% of the nation's homes are underwater (borrowers owe more on the homes than they are worth) - however, this is an improvement on the 23.3% figure from last quarter.

That's it for now!  We will be back with another entry later today.  See you later and have a great Monday!
