Daily Briefing, 10/13/2011

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

The Lehigh Valley International Airport launched a rebranding initiative yesterday, once again becoming ABE.  In Lower Macungie, residents sounded off against proposed construction on land owned by the Jaindl family.  In Easton, city officials cut more than $420,000 from CDBG requests.

In state-wide news, Harrisburg city council voted yesterday to seek bankruptcy protection.

In national news, Congress passed trade deals yesterday with Panama, South Korea & Columbia.  Foreclosure activity increased in the 3rd quarter of 2011.  BlackBerries across the world are still down today, although service appears to be improving.

We have two Chamber events today: our annual Energy & Environmental conference and a free mixer at Buca Di Beppo, with KidsPeace.

That's it for now!  Have a great day and we'll be back later.
