Daily Briefing, 4/8/2011

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

Northampton County College President Arthur Scott has announced his retirement at the end of the next academic year.  The IronPigs held their season opener last night and won, beating the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees 7-2.  In national news, consumer spending was up in March, beating analysts expectations.  Negotiations last night did not yield a budget agreement, setting up a likely government shutdown today.

We have two great Chamber events today:  the annual Hellertown-Lower Saucon banquet and Phillipsburg Comedy Night.

Hmm,. slow news day today.  Anyway, that's all for now - have a good one!

Mike, I noticed that the Chamber Foundation link does not work. Is there another link?
