Business News in the Lehigh Valley, 3/12/13

Good morning, and happy Tuesday Lehigh Valley. It's a good day to be a duck with the rain we're getting today!

Tonight, Dan's Camera City in Easton is hosting a business mixer and offering professional headshots for the low price of $25 (Regular price $80). If you're currently using an outdated headshot for your business profile, now is the time to update it and show your best side. You must make a reservation to participate in the headshot promotion.

The groundbreaking for Easton's $26 million transportation center is finally scheduled and expected to begin with a month, following a decade of planning and speculation. The transportation center will give commuters and visitors a centralized bus space at the intersection of Larry Holmes Drive and S. Third Street.

Both the Dow and S&P have grown seven consecutive sessions, with the Dow setting another record high on Monday and the S&P within 10 points of its all-time closing high of 1,565.15 set in 2007. The stock futures dipped slightly yesterday, but any pullback by investors may be short-lived as many have been using recent dips as a buying opportunity.
