Javier Galindo was 22 - "young, dumb," he said - when police in Cape May County stopped the minivan he was driving and found a gun inside in 2005. Galindo, a U.S. Army veteran, said he had bought the weapon legally in Texas and carried it out of habit, not knowing it was illegal in New Jersey. He was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, served a few months behind bars, and tried to move on. But there was a problem. The conviction would remain on his record for 10 years - the length it generally takes in New Jersey to have a crime expunged - and would follow him every time he filled out a job application.

New Jersey lawmakers pushing for a state takeover of Atlantic City's government now say they will give the cash-strapped resort town until the end of summer to enact substantial budget cuts before intervening. If the city doesn't adopt a "legally binding" plan to sustainably reduce per capita spending by nearly half within 130 days, state government would intervene, lawmakers said. They also said in a statement that if Atlantic City accepted this proposal, they would petition Gov. Christie for a loan "that is fully secured to protect New Jersey taxpayers" and that would allow the city "to maintain its operational budget while the municipal government makes the necessary cuts to remain solvent.

The playoffs seemed an unlikely destination for both the Flyers and Radko Gudas in the middle of February. The team was positioned 11th in the Eastern Conference standings and Gudas was on the doorstep of coach Dave Hakstol's doghouse. Neither the Flyers nor their 25-year-old defenseman from the Czech Republic went away. Now, on the eve of their first-round playoff matchup with the Washington Capitals, it is fair to wonder if the Flyers' late-season push into the playoffs would have been possible without Gudas.

A New Jersey judge said Tuesday that GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz can appear on the New Jersey primary ballot, deciding against challengers who argued that the Canada-born Texas senator was not a "natural-born citizen. " The administrative law judge, Jeff Masin, said that arguments that a person born in another country could not be a natural-born citizen were "not facetious," and that the subject would "never be entirely free of doubt" without a U.S. Supreme Court ruling. But "the more persuasive legal analysis is that such a child, born of a citizen-father, citizen-mother, or both, is indeed a 'natural-born citizen' within the contemplation of the Constitution," he said in a 27-page decision.

TRENTON - Atlantic City ran out of cash Friday after delivering paychecks to its public employees and won't have any more money until second-quarter tax receipts flow in May 2. Credit agencies have repeatedly downgraded the city's general obligation bonds and have warned investors that the resort town may default on its debt payments this year, or even go bankrupt. So why haven't Gov. Christie and the state's legislative leaders enacted a plan to stave off a financial disaster that could have ripple effects on other distressed municipalities?
