      This week I'm introducing what will be a regular feature on this blog. Each Monday I'll pull out the top Trenton stories from the print edition's State Street and Grapevine columns. This week gambling takes center stage:

      Don't expect the paltry response to New Jersey's lottery operations RFP to derail the privatization attempt. Last week, the state Treasurer's office announced that only one company, Northstar New Jersey, submitted a bid to take over the sales and marketing operations of the New Jersey Lottery. Northstar is a joint venture between GTECH, Scientific Games and a Canadian pension fund.

      In this week's State Street, my colleague Beth Fitzgerald reports there's still a very good chance the privatization attempt will go forward. Her sources say it's far from ideal to have only one bidder, but that doesn't mean the state will scrap the plan.

      Meanwhile, the sports betting saga continues. Grapevine has word about an Atlantic City casino moving forward with plans to implement sports betting soon. In State Street, Princeton Public Affairs Group's Bill Pascrell III talks about the behind the scenes action even as the sports betting lawsuit continues.

      Also in State Street, Phil Kirschner gives his prediction about the minimum wage fight.
