Daily Briefing, 8/24/2011

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

Of course, the big local story was yesterday's earthquake, which surprised just about everybody, but fortunately caused no damage or injuries.  Good news for PPL customers, who are set to see their electric rates drop next month.  The Auditor General's office has announced that he will be examining the contract buyouts that recently occured in the Allentown and Philadelphia school districts.  The Lehigh Valley International Airport has announced that it will turn management of the Airport to a private firm.  State Representative Joe Brennan has applied for a first-time offender program that would remove his recent drunken driving arrest from his record.

In world-wide news, Moammar Gadhafi released an audio tape yesterday, confirming he is still alive and calling on his supporters to try and take back Tripoli.

We have two Chamber events today: a joint networking breakfast with four Chamber Councils and a panel on the Do's and Don'ts of Social Media.

That's it for now!  Have a good one and we'll see you later!
