Daily Briefing, 8/16/2011

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

A Morning Call story notes that, despite the bad weather that hurt MusikFest's bottom line, Bethlehem shops and restaurants did great in the rain.  Officer Robert Lasso of Freemansburg will be buried today; the public will be allowed to line the funeral route to pay Officer Lasso final respects.

According to Rock the Capital, Pennsylvania now has the 2nd highest-paid legislature.

In national news, a survey of economists by USA today shows that 30% believe we will enter another recession, an increase of 15% from three months ago.

We have two Chamber events today, and both are grand openings: a Grand Opening at Daniel's Sharpsmart in Easton and a Grand Opening at Brown Daub Kia in Easton.

That's it for now - have a good one, and we'll see you later.

How can a business like Brown Daub KIA, which has been in business for years, have a grand opening?
