Business News in the Lehigh Valley, 3/18/13

Good morning, and happy Monday Lehigh Valley! Here's hoping you had a great, restful weekend and you're ready to take on the week.

After 17 years of holding their training camp at Lehigh University, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they will no longer be returning to Bethlehem, and instead remain closer to home in Philadelphia, with practice sessions at Lincoln Financial Field and invitation-only sessions at the NovaCare Complex.

The Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives designated March 13, 2013 as "Industrial Resource Center Day" in Pennsylvania, reflecting the growth of the state's manufacturing sector. A total of seven industrial resources centers are located throughout the state, including Manufacturers Resource Center, a Bethlehem-based economic development and manufacturing consulting organization that advances the performance of manufacturing companies.

The roads may be somewhat slick today as more winter weather is expected to come our way. Forecasts are calling for a winter weather advisory for most of the area until around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning.

In local news, an apartment fire over the weekend has tragically claimed four lives in Emmaus. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
