With Atlantic City teetering on the brink of insolvency, Mayor Don Guardian is considering skipping a $1.8 million interest payment on municipal bonds due May 1, chief of staff Chris Filiciello said Tuesday. If the city missed the payment, it would be the first default by a New Jersey municipality since the Great Depression, Bloomberg News reported. New Jersey has always intervened to prevent distressed cities from missing debt payments or going bankrupt, but Gov. Christie has twice vetoed aid packages that would redirect casino funds, now assigned to marketing, to help Atlantic City with its debt.

That could change if a major-league organization thinks enough of the Father Judge pitcher to select him in the first-year player draft in June and make an irresistible financial offer. Crusaders first-year manager Kenny Devenney said scouts from the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Kansas City Royals have been keeping tabs on the hard-throwing senior righthander. For now, Hammer, also a shortstop, is focused on trying to help lead Judge to its first Catholic League title since 2000.

LET'S TAKE a peek at the race for attorney general. It's overshadowed by contests for president and U.S. Senate. But it offers insights into Pennsylvania's geopolitics and Philadelphia's clout. Also, it's about an office that's both stepping-stone and banana peel. Of the five elected A.G.s since 1980 (previously, the post was appointed), three ran for governor (Ernie Preate, Mike Fisher, and Tom Corbett); one, Corbett, became governor; and two were charged with crimes. Preate went to prison; current A.G. Kathleen Kane awaits trial.
