ATLANTIC CITY - Vera Coking famously refused to sell to Donald Trump. But in the end, she sold to Carl Icahn. Property records in Atlantic County show that Coking's famous but now-vacant white house, in the shadow of the famous but now-shuttered Trump Plaza, is now owned by IEH Enterprises - Icahn. The house at 127 S. Columbia Place was sold at auction in August for $583,000. At the time, Atlantic City lawyer Pat Agnellini said he was the bidder on site - and on the phone - who walked away with the winning bid. Agnellini declined to say at the time whom he represented other than himself, or what the plans were for the property.

Trump Entertainment Resorts has come out a loser in the Pennsylvania casino market. Again. The U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday rejected the two-year bid of the company - known for its three Atlantic City casinos and its high-profile partial owner Donald Trump - to overturn a 2006 ruling by the state Gaming Control Board. Trump, using the name Keystone Redevelopment Partners LLC, pitched a casino at the old Budd Co. plant in Nicetown. The board rejected Trump's bid for one of two casino licenses in Philadelphia, in part because it worried he would use the local casino to draw customers to Atlantic City, where the tax rate on gambling profits is lower.

TRENTON - Ready. Set. Go get married! A couple of New Jersey lawmakers are proposing a bill to eliminate the state's 72-hour waiting period for couples seeking a license to wed.

Nicholas Scutari, D-Linden, argue that the law is antiquated - it dates back to 1934 - and getting rid of it would give New Jersey a competitive edge in the wedding-tourism market. Other nearby states, like New York and Delaware, have only 24-hour waiting periods.
