Daily Briefing, 8/25/2011

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

In Bethlehem, police said that they made more arrests at Musikfest this year than last year (though only up by four at 81), but said that the new Southside facility campus made the festival more manageable.

In national news, the big story is that Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple.  Tim Cook, the company's former COO, will now take over the reigns of Apple.  More than 100 CEOs have signed a pledge not to make any political donations until elected officials break the current "partisan gridlock."  A new poll shows that Rick Perry is in the lead in the race for the Republican nomination, becoming the new frontrunner.

We have one Chamber event today: a Summer Tropical Party at Pistachio's bar and grill between The Chamber and the Hispanic Chamber of the Greater Lehigh Valley.

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