Bartenders, waitresses and other non-gaming employees at Atlantic City's Elsinore Atlantis Casino Hotel walked out on strike at noon today because the financially troubled casino has refused to grant an immediate wage boost. Casino officials told more than 600 employees to leave work at 10:45 a.m. to ensure an orderly exit before the strike, and picket signs went up at noon. About 700 Atlantis workers are members of Local 54 of the Hotel and Restaurant Employees union. The hotel and casino will continue to operate during the strike and "all basic services will be provided," a spokesman said.

The New Jersey Casino Control Commission voted yesterday to renew the gaming license of the Atlantis Casino Hotel, saying the financially struggling gambling hall appeared to be successfully fighting its way back from the brink of bankruptcy. The commission voted 4-1 to allow the Atlantis to operate in Atlantic City for another year, with several commission members praising the performance of Jeanne Hood, the new casino president. "Mrs. Hood, together with her present team, has already demonstrated her ability . . . to stop the hemorrhaging this company sustained," said Commissioner Joel R. Jacobson.

The Atlantis Casino Hotel was refused refuge yesterday by federal Bankruptcy Court Judge Rosemary Gambardella but decided last night to keep operating after its license expired. The casino can continue operating under the aegis of a state-appointed conservator until it is sold or lacks enough cash to guarantee that gamblers' winning bets will be paid, state officials told the casino last night. Atlantis attorneys had argued for three weeks that the appointment of a conservator would force the casino into bankruptcy and set off a mass of litigation that would force the casino to close.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Astronauts kept busy fixing and hauling gear aboard the linked Atlantis and International Space Station on Saturday, as the last shuttle flight drew closer to an end. Atlantis' pilots got a jammed storage locker open and retrieved air purifiers for the space station. In more good news, they brought back online a computer that abruptly stopped working two days earlier, the second computer failure in five days aboard Atlantis. NASA wants to run more diagnostic testing, but so far the computer seems to be working fine, officials said.

When the submarine sets out in search of the legendary city beneath the sea in Atlantis: The Lost Empire, it marks a radical departure in the course of Disney animation. Conspicuous absentees on this trip are the Elton John songs, the cute animals and the comic-relief sidekicks. Instead, the production team behind such smashing Mouse House successes as Beauty and the Beast and Tarzan has gone for a curious melange of New Age myth and old-fashioned Indiana Jones adventure. It leads to a confusion of tone and an occasional incoherence in the plotting.

When the shuttle Atlantis roared toward space Friday morning, more than 200 hearts went soaring with it at Drexel University's College of Engineering in honor of shuttle commander Capt. Christopher Ferguson, a graduate of the college. As the launch countdown ended at 11:29 a.m. a loud cheer erupted in the lobby of Bossone Research Center, where about 200 students and staff gathered to watch the historic 135th and final launch of the space shuttle program. "To be studying at the same university as where Capt.

The Atlantis Casino Hotel conservator yesterday sought broadened powers to probe the money-losing gambling hall, accusing management of concealing from him last Friday night that negotiations were under way to sell to Donald Trump. Conservator Joseph M. Nolan said he wanted to "accomplish something for the public good," but he told the Casino Control Commission that he could not if "you cut my arms off. " Although Nolan appeared unlikely to win all the powers he sought, Chairman Walter N. Read said he would let Nolan hire lawyers to scour Atlantis files, specifically mentioning the possibility that contracts might exist that had been concealed from regulators.

The Atlantis casino was two-thirds empty at 10:30 a.m. the other day, but a crowd of gamblers surrounded one roulette table. A fat man with a toupee seemed to be winning big. He had his own particular technique of playing nearly every possible number. He lost a lot but won even more. Gesturing at the man's pile of chips, a dealer joked, "You almost got enough there to buy a hamburger and Coke. " "Not at these prices," the big winner shot back. Indeed, the entire pile of winnings added up to little more than $10. He was playing at a 25-cent table.

David P. Tilton, chief executive of AtlantiCare Health System Inc., says he will retire on June 30.

Lori Herndon, an AtlantiCare executive vice president who heads the system's hospital operations, will succeed Tilton on July 1, AtlantiCare said. Tilton has worked for AtlantiCare for 29 years, and has been president and CEO since 2007.

Geisinger Health System completed its acquisition of AtlantiCare Health System Inc., the dominant health-care system in Atlantic County, the two organizations said Thursday. The deal, which was announced nearly two years ago, adds to Geisinger's acute-care operations. Based in Danville, Pa., Geisinger already owned six acute-care hospitals in Pennsylania and this deal expands its licensed acute-care bed count by 36 percent. AtlantiCare operates hospitals in Atlantic City and Galloway Township with a total of 593 licensed beds.

The small, picturesque island off the southern end of Long Beach Island was once a popular seaside resort. It had a lighthouse, lifesaving station, two rustic hotels, 20 summer cottages, and a community meetinghouse that served also as a church and school. Vacationers from Philadelphia and southern New Jersey relaxed there as long ago as the late 1860s, enjoying its peaceful solitude, cool breezes, fishing, hunting, sailing, swimming, and clam bakes. But Tucker's Island's days were numbered.

David P. Tilton, president and chief executive of AtlantiCare, is convinced that merging with Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pa., will have a big payoff for his Atlantic County health system - despite the 211 miles separating the headquarters of the two organizations. "It works because they've proven that they can do this with other organizations as distant as West Virginia and Maine from their Danville headquarters," said Tilton on Tuesday after announcing that AtlantiCare had reached a definitive agreement to merge with Geisinger.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas - As he prepared to inbound the ball with a little more than 7 minutes left in the game, Dylan Ennis delivered a message. "Let's go," the guard shouted to his Villanova teammates. "Let's put them away. " It was a glimpse at the fire Villanova coach Jay Wright and his players say Ennis, a sophomore transfer from Rice whose debut was delayed because of a broken right hand, brings to the Wildcats. Yesterday, it was on full display. Ennis came off the bench and scored 14 points on 4-for-5 shooting, and the Wildcats (5-0)

AtlantiCare, the dominant health-care provider in Atlantic County, has signed a letter of intent to join Geisinger Health System, an integrated health system in rural Pennsylvania known nationally for high quality and low cost, the providers said Wednesday. AtlantiCare had significant talks with seven health systems to find a partner that would help accelerate its move toward a model emphasizing health management rather than getting paid for discrete episodes of illness, David P. Tilton, AtlantiCare's president and chief executive, said.

No opera takes well to being caged. But in The Emperor of Atlantis , produced by Curtis Opera Theatre last weekend, the innate expansiveness of opera couldn't have been more appropriately contained than by a chain-link fence erected inside Curtis' studio theater - and not just because the piece was written in the Nazis' Terezin concentration camp. Inside the fence, singers were knee-deep in trash. Outside, authority figures came, went, and made proclamations without necessarily being physically present, through impersonal phone lines.

Is cider the new beer? Commonwealth Ciders, spun off recently from the Philadelphia Brewing Co., is evidence it just might be. These traditionally dry hard ciders ("Exported from Kensington") are different from many new American ciders, which trend too sweet. Commonwealth's plain flavor is bone dry with a whisper of natural sweetness and an elegant light touch, both in body and calories (just 160). Commonwealth is kicking into summer-refresher overdrive, though, with two new flavors this week, debuting with a tasting at Sunday's Headhouse Farmers' Market.

VCU then went on an 11-0 run with all the points scored by Graham and Brandenberg. Brandenberg hit two three-pointers in the run and Graham one as the Rams finished 13-for-22 from behind the arc.
