ATLANTIC CITY - When gambling was being proposed for Atlantic City 38 years ago, most religious denominations opposed casinos. They viewed gambling as a vice that could destroy families and communities. Now, many of the same churches are standing firmly by the casino workers, a number of whom fill their pews on Sundays, who are expected to lose their jobs in massive numbers, starting Labor Day weekend with the closure of the Showboat and Revel. Many houses of worship are offering counseling for the affected workers, increased food pantry hours, or just someone to pray with.

ATLANTIC CITY - Praising Resort Casino's rich history and the continuing importance of the Atlantic City gaming market, Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority representatives said it is the "perfect time" for the Native American tribe to establish a presence here. The presence has been created by the death of Resorts co-owner Dennis Gomes. Morris Bailey, the other owner, needed a partner, and the Mohegan authority fills that role. "With Morris Bailey's faith in us, we are honored to continue the work that Dennis has started," said Mitchell Etess, chief executive officer of Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, the entity that owns Mohegan Sun casinos in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
