Daily Briefing, 11/30/2011

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

The first of three public meetings was held yesterday on the Allentown Arena project.  PPL is promising better communication during the next major weather event.  In Northampton County, elected officials are working to minimize a tax increase that they say is unavoidable.  The Northampton County Gaming Revenue Authority again rejected a request from the Borough of Hellertown for two new patrol officers.  In Bethlehem, Councilman David DiGiacinto has proposed keeping the Dewberry Fire Station open for at least another six months while emergency services in the city are studied.

In national news, American Airlines filed for bankruptcy yesterday.  After an allegation of a thirteen-year extra-marital affair, Herman Cain said yesterday that he would reassess his candidacy.  The S&P has downgraded 37 banks, using new credit-rating criteria.

We have one Chamber event today: a C.E. Roth Grand Re-Opening in downtown Allentown.

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