Daily Briefing, 11/22/11

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

The Valley has been awarded a $3.4 million grant from the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.  The City of Bethlehem is receiving an additional $475,400 in revenue from the Sands casino.  Home sales in the Valley increased compared to the same time last October, but the average price dropped.  U.S. Senator Bob Casey visited St. Luke's new Anderson Campus.

In state-wide news, former FBI Director Robert Freeh will head an independent panel that will investigate what happened at Penn State.  In national news, as expected, the debt super committee formally announced yesterday that it had failed to reach an agreement.

We have one Chamber event today: a pre-game pep rally for the Phillipsburg & Easton High School football games.

And that's it for now!  Have a great day, and we'll see you later.
