Bally Manufacturing Corp. received the blessing of state gaming regulators yesterday to buy its second Atlantic City casino despite a lawyer's plea to halt the highly publicized sale. Members of the state Casino Control Commission unanimously approved Bally's purchase of stock in the Golden Nugget Casino/Hotel, a move that clears the way for the two casino operators to close their business deal possibly as soon as this weekend. Before voting on the purchase, commission Chairman Walter Read noted that he had received several letters from a Bally shareholder's attorney who is seeking to stop the sale, which figured in the Boardwalk power struggle between Bally and rival Atlantic City casino owner Donald J. Trump of New York City.

A disgruntled Bally stockholder who owns less than 100 shares of the corporation took on the Goliaths of the gaming industry yesterday in a frantic bid to foil peace accords struck by New York developer Donald J. Trump and Bally Manufacturing Corp. While the two Atlantic City casino operators sheathed their weapons in their Boardwalk power struggle, attorneys for Bally shareholder Carol F. Glassman moved in U.S. District Court in Camden to block the peace settlement. Glassman, 40, an occupational therapist from New York City, is represented by Haverford lawyer Richard Greenfield, who accused Bally's top executives of "trading away the health of the company for their jobs" and Trump of "extorting greenmail.

The Bally Manufacturing Co. approved an agreement yesterday to buy the Golden Nugget Casino/Hotel in Atlantic City for $439 million, according to a Bally vice president. The move is viewed by casino industry sources as an effort to thwart a hostile takeover bid of the Chicago-based Bally by New York real estate developer Donald Trump. An attorney for Trump said yesterday that Trump would attempt to delay completion of the sale of the Golden Nugget to Bally until all facts surrounding the purchase agreement were known.

Less than a week after Bally Manufacturing Corp. vowed to keep the stylish Golden Nugget Casino/Hotel exactly the same, the corporate hierarchy has started to crumble at the "best little casino on the Boardwalk. " Since Bally purchased the rival casino on Sunday, two of Golden Nugget's top executives - its casino manager and its chief executive officer - have resigned. Boone Wayson, the chief executive officer, resigned yesterday. Those resignations came amid rumors that Charles Meyerson - a $300,000-a- year casino host who is a legend in the gaming industry for drawing the Nugget's high-roller gamblers - was considering quitting within 60 days.

WITH ALL that's going on in the world, I don't understand why the Daily News put Carrol Shannon on the Feb. 9 front page. The fact that she is a grandmother, as the headline blared, has nothing to do with this tale of belligerence, defiance and just plain crude behavior. Even if there was a misunderstanding by Bally management regarding her bike reservation, it does not give her the right to defy the manager on duty and force her way on the equipment. If that wasn't bad enough, when police arrived she disobeyed a lawful order to remove herself.

A federal judge in Camden has approved a $6.5 million settlement of a suit against Donald Trump and the officers and directors of Bally Manufacturing Corp. Shareholders who bought stock in Bally between Nov. 13, 1986, and Feb. 20, 1987, will get $2.25 million from Bally under the agreement approved Wednesday. The $4.25 million remaining will be paid to Bally by insurers of its officers and directors and by Trump, who must personally pay $2.25 million. The 1986 suit by Bally's shareholders alleged that the defendants' failure to disclose negotiations between Trump and Bally artificially inflated the value of Bally stock.

On the eve of a presidential election, it is normal for candidates to focus their campaign on issues that affect a majority of voters. Thus, they are scrambling to appeal to the female demographic. But there was a time when women played no part in politics at all and their vote didn't matter - they were not even allowed to vote. But women are major players in politics now, and their votes are courted. That is why members of the Alice Paul Centennial Foundation in Mount Laurel are excited about receiving a grant that will allow them to complete a project commemorating their organization's namesake, a suffragist who led the way for women to gain many of the rights they enjoy today.

ATLANTIC CITY - It was always just weed, grass or pot. No one ever called it marijuana when he was growing up in South Philly, and as far as Jeffrey Matteo knew, all it ever did was get you high, hungry and tired. But decades later, as his mother, Josephine, fought and beat a round of lymphoma only to see it come back and ravage her some more, Matteo learned more about the plant and its medicinal powers. He persuaded his mother to try it, for the second time in her life, dipping a toothpick in hemp oil and putting it on her tongue, and it began to pry her and constant pain apart.

" The mayor called the decision by Las-Vegas-based Caesars Entertainment Corp. to close Showboat "a shame," and said it would motivate him to "work 24/7 to bring new investment to Atlantic City.

PHILADELPHIA'S most prominent boxers fared well this summer, ousting whoever stepped into the ring against them. Kensington's Danny Garcia (27-0) defeated Lucas Matthysse on the Mayweather-Canelo undercard. North Philadelphia's Bryant Jennings (17-0) managed a stellar knockout over Andrey Fedosov back in late May Middleweight Gabriel Rosado lost a split decision to J'Leon Love in May that was overturned when Love failed a drug test. But with all that, it's likely that Jesse Hart put together the busiest and most prolific summer.

LAS VEGAS - Like all major U.S. destinations, Sin City has felt the full throttle of the recession. But Vegas' economy, built entirely on spending - whether through gambling on the Strip's 33 casinos, relaxing at the lavish spas, or shopping at the upscale malls - needs tourists more than any other. And starting in early 2011, the city's marketing message will be heavily geared toward those who survived the recession. Why the push? "Survival," Rob Dondero, executive vice president of R&R Partners, the Las Vegas public relations firm that coined the famous "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" slogan, said candidly.

The object is to toss a pingpong ball into a plastic cup filled with beer on the opponent's side of the table. (The game generally involves 10 cups per side, arranged in a triangular shape.
