For Atlantic City, HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" is the gift that keeps on giving. After HBO's historically based drama about the town's naughty, bawdy days under early 20th-century crime czar Enoch "Nucky" Johnson debuted last September, Atlantic City basked in plenty of reflected glory. The [Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority "]fielded a lot of calls. People wanted to know how similar [the show] is to our actual history," said Stephanie Schwartz, charter and convention sales manager for Cape May, N.J.-based Great American Trolley Tours.

Momentum is building to move three social-service providers away from Atlantic City's tourism district, where authorities say the homeless and drug-addicted populations they attract contradict the family-friendly image the resort is promoting. Prospective locations in the city have been identified for Sister Jean's Soup Kitchen and the John Brooks Recovery Center, a treatment facility and methadone clinic, officials said. The moves have been discussed for years, but a January deadline for a progress report to Gov. Christie has created new urgency, say those involved.

Time was when it might seem quite the oddity to be mentioning the squeaky-clean Osmonds and the debauchery of Atlantic City in even close to the same breath. Yet this holiday season, it seems that Casinoland and the Osmond clan, as former N.J. Gov. Tom Kean would say, are perfect together. It's been a tough few weeks for the Osmonds. Patriarch George Osmond, father of the nine famous ones, died earlier this month at age 90, and a week later, Marie Osmond's 16-year-old son went into rehab.

An extra weekend day and better weather propelled Atlantic City casinos to report $386 million in revenue last month, a 30 percent increase from a year ago.

"You were helped a lot by the weather," said Lawrence A. Klatzkin, managing director of Jefferies & Co. Inc. "There was...

It may have seemed like a more direct route to a jackpot than playing the slots, but like most casino gambles, this one did not pay off for long. State police yesterday announced the arrest of a 41-year-old man in connection with an armed robbery of the coin-redemption booth Friday at Bally's Atlantic City, one of four similar casino heists this summer. Police also issued warrants for three other men, including a man police think was involved in at least two of the robberies.

The Borgata, the billion-dollar new kid in town, did just fine last month, winning a hefty $42 million from gamblers in its third month of operation. But nearly every other casino in Atlantic City registered steep revenue declines from a year ago, leading some to wonder whether the Borgata will be able to expand the market or just load its plate from competitors' buffets. Overall, the city's gambling revenue last month - even with the Borgata - was down 0.6 percent at $368.

MAYS LANDING, N.J. - "Both?" Double murder suspect Antoinette Pelzer expressed surprise and swallowed hard in a court appearance Tuesday afternoon after learning that both the Canadian women she allegedly stabbed with a 12-inch butcher knife in an attack Monday in the tourism district of Atlantic City had died. According to charges read by Superior Court Judge Michael Donio, who set bail at $1.5 million for Pelzer, the older of the two victims, an 80-year-old, intervened as Pelzer attacked the younger, who was 47 and believed to be the older woman's daughter.

ATLANTIC CITY - A major New Jersey police union is asking its members not to patronize the Tropicana Casino & Resort when the group holds its convention at a different casino in the city next month. The New Jersey Policemen's Benevolent Association is holding its convention at Bally's Atlantic City in March. President Anthony Wieners wants cops to stay away from the Trop because it has declared an impasse in negotiations with its unionized workers and intends to end their pension plan.

ATLANTIC CITY - Atlantic City police say a professional boxer from Philadelphia and five other men face charges after they brawled with police and security guards at a casino where the fighter had won a bout hours earlier. The brawl began at Bally's Atlantic City around 3:15 a.m. Saturday, when the men became disorderly and were asked to leave the casino, Sgt. Monica McMenamin said. She said they had threatened a police officer, who called for backup. Moments later, junior middleweight "King" Gabriel Rosado, 25, allegedly punched the officer in the face, splitting his lip. Rosado was charged with aggravated assault on police and making terroristic threats, and his bail was set at $200,000.
