Daily Briefing, 12/16/2011

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

In local news, the fight over redistricting and war of words between Senator Lisa Boscola and Congressman Charlie Dent continues.  Northampton Community College has selected Mark Erickson, current President of Wittenberg University in Ohio, as its next President.  Police in Allentown evicted the Occupy Allentown protesters.

In national news, initial filings for unemployment dropped to their lowest levels since May 2008.  Republicans held their final Presidential debate before the Iowa caucuses yesterday.  Democrats and Republicans have apparently reached a deal that would keep the government funded through October 2012.  Fitch's has downgraded many of the world's largest banks.

That's it for now!  We probably will not be back with another entry later today, so if we don't get back, have a great weekend!
