TRENTON - Electric-car manufacturers such as Tesla Motors would be able to bypass auto dealerships and sell their vehicles directly to consumers under a bill passed by the Legislature on Monday. The Democratic-controlled Senate also tried but failed to override Gov. Christie's controversial veto of legislation that would overhaul the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The Senate voted 30-2 in favor of the Tesla bill. The Assembly passed it 77-0, with one abstention, in June.

Does T. Milton Street Sr., an irrepressible Philadelphian, actually reside in New Jersey? Street on Monday became the first candidate to have his spot on the May 19 Philadelphia mayoral primary ballot challenged in court. A former state senator, Street filed nomination petitions last week to run for mayor as a Democrat, though city and state records list him as a registered independent since 2012. The legal challenge filed Monday cites Street's registration - and also claims he has lived in New Jersey since 2012.

In his appeals to a national audience, Gov. Christie is promoting a record of fiscal accomplishment in New Jersey: cutting spending, shrinking the state payroll, and bucking Democratic demands to raise taxes after years of excess in Trenton. "If we did it in New Jersey, . . . for God's sake we can do it in the United States of America," he recently told a crowd at a Republican dinner in New Hampshire, after describing $2.5 billion in cuts to spending and an 8,000-person reduction in the state government workforce.

My farm-to-table fantasy? I harvest eggs, milk and honey with my own hands and eat the fruits of my labor, aglow in the setting sun. Yet I'm a city slicker with a short attention span. So where's the happy medium for a potential urban farmer like me? Renting. Yes, just in time for spring, you can rent chickens for eggs (with an option to adopt if you come to love them) or goats for grazing your lawn (they don't bite). You can even rent your own honeybee colony to buzz about on your rooftop or in your backyard.

ST. LOUIS - Ron Hextall listened to the question and swallowed hard. Will the Flyers begin to give younger players and unknown commodity prospects a shot at playing in the NHL over the next 31 days? "Our goal is still to make the playoffs," Hextall responded. "Until we're officially out, that will continue to be our goal. " In his heart of hearts, there has to be a difference between what Hextall says publicly and what he truly believes. He is a numbers guy, someone who has studied the analytics.

For the flawed Flyers, their Lost Weekend - an excruciating overtime defeat in Boston, a pitiful performance in New Jersey - was a microcosm of their inconsistent season. Their penalty kill, which was the worst in the league for most of the season's first half, deserted them in their most important shift of the year, allowing Boston to tie the game with 14.1 seconds left in regulation Saturday. Their offense, inconsistent all season, continued to lack a finishing touch and showed first-year general manager Ron Hextall he desperately needs to add a consistent top-six forward over the summer.

Friday was the first day that NJSIAA baseball teams could begin practice, and we're guessing that not many teams in South Jersey had outdoor workouts. The snowstorm of Thursday wasn't very field-friendly. The season begins April 1, so every day leading up to it is important, but at least in the beginning, those days will be taking place indoors. And that goes to show what people from South Jersey, and really, the entire Northeast have to go through to play baseball or softball.

FAIR LAWN, N.J. - Gov. Christie took his call for a pension system overhaul to Bergen County on Wednesday, but no one asked questions on that topic during the town-hall-style forum. Instead, attendees at the Fair Lawn Community Center repeatedly asked Christie about services for people with developmental disabilities, objecting to changes proposed by the state they described as too restrictive. Others brought up standardized testing as new state assessments that have sparked some controversy are underway this week.

A New Jersey congressman is asking for an investigation of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the resignation of its top official after reports that FEMA was aware that insurance companies fraudulently denied full payouts to Hurricane Sandy victims. Rep. Tom MacArthur, a Republican whose Third District stretches from Willingboro to the Shore, said Monday that FEMA had engaged in "corrupt and fraudulent" practices and called for the resignation of Administrator W. Craig Fugate.
