New Jersey Republicans should cast their ballots Tuesday for the candidate most likely to succeed against incumbent U.S. Sen. Robert Torricelli. That candidate is Diane Allen. Republicans can look to her record as a state senator, her moderate positions on social issues, and her political tenacity as reasons why she would be a worthy GOP standard-bearer in the November general election. Ms. Allen sees considerable room for belt-tightening within the Beltway. She would like to cut down government waste to find more federal money for initiatives such as expanding prescription drug coverage so the poorest seniors would have only a modest co-pay.

They do what they can to survive - from stealing to selling drugs and their bodies. They are homeless children, as young as 9, who are forced to live off the streets. "It hurt sometimes when I was talking to them, because I had no idea there were so many living on the streets and how awful their problems were," said Diane Allen, host of a one-hour documentary called "Street Shadows," to air Thursday night at 8:30 on Channel 3. The program gives a sobering look into the world of children trying to survive.

The National Organization for Women canceled its planned rally to support WCAU-TV anchor Diane Allen yesterday afternoon because of the weekend blizzard. But NOW's cancellation didn't stop some of Allen's friends from showing up at Channel 10's City Avenue studios yesterday to voice support for Allen, who was removed as an anchor for the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts and now anchors the 5:30 p.m. newscast. Allen has filed three federal age and sex discrimination complaints against Channel 10. Her 45th birthday was on March 8. The snow also didn't stop 17 African-American protesters who turned out in the 28-degree weather to suppport Channel 10 general manager Gene Lothery, who is African-American.

What was the news event on most people's minds last night? Was it the $14.5 million settlement that went to Rock Hudson's lover? Was it the Iranian suicide squads that have apparently been dispatched to kill author Salman Rushdie? Channel 10, at least, would have had you believe that all this newsy stuff paled in comparison to the return of Diane Allen to Philadelphia television. Eight months after leaving Channel 3 in a highly publicized defection, Allen made her Channel 10 debut, co-anchoring Channel 10's 5:30 news report with Alan Frio and the 11 p.m. program with Larry Kane.

Diane Allen has won a key first-round decision in her age- and sex- discrimination case against WCAU-TV (Channel 10), station officials said yesterday. The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission found probable cause that Allen's replacement by Jane Robelot in March 1992 as anchor of Channel 10's 11 p.m. newscast was a result of age discrimination, the station said in a statement. Allen is 45; Robelot is 32. Similarly, the station said, the EEOC found probable cause that Allen suffered sex discrimination in December when her application to return as an anchor on the 11 p.m. broadcast was rejected.

Channel 10 news anchor Diane Allen, shedding nary a tear, told viewers yesterday she was quitting to start her own production company, ending months of speculation that she would file an age- and sex-discrimination lawsuit against the station. Allen, 45, whose contract ran out yesterday, has started Vidcomm, a company that will produce documentaries to be shown on WCAU-TV. She also will market them to cable networks and stations outside of Philadelphia. Appearing upbeat during her farewell broadcast, Allen made no mention of past problems with the station or general manager Gene Lothery.

Although a longtime supporter of President Bush, State Sen. Diane Allen doesn't share all of his politics. She's a New Jersey Republican - a moderate in the tradition of Millicent Fenwick, Tom Kean and Christie Whitman. She's a fiscal conservative but a social moderate. She's pro-choice and anti-gun. That's why she's been elected repeatedly in the Democratic-leaning Seventh Legislative District along the Delaware River in Burlington and Camden Counties. In less than 10 years, the former TV news anchor has grown into a party leader.

Diane Allen, who says she never voted in a primary election for fear of compromising her position as a television news anchor, is running for a seat in the New Jersey General Assembly as a Republican. "I'm new to any party," said Allen, 46, who is a candidate in the 7th Legislative District, centered in Burlington County. "I thought it was important as an anchor of the news that you had to be completely objective and not give the impression that you favored one side. " Allen hasn't been an anchor since February 1994, when she left WCAU-TV (Channel 10)

To believers of the Gospel According to Channel 3 Promos, anchor Diane Allen is the closest thing to a saint since Mother Teresa. In Real Life, it ain't necessarily so. Sure, Allen's a loving wife, a doting mother and a tireless friend to the needy. And granted, she rarely loses her temper or even raises her voice. But don't let the easy smile or placid exterior fool you. When it comes to the cutthroat behind-the-scenes world of local television, Diane Allen doesn't forgive, and she's doesn't forget.

TRENTON A measure to allow adoptees over 18 in New Jersey access to their original birth certificates passed both the Senate and Assembly on Thursday. Proponents have long pushed for the Adoptees' Birthright Bill, which has coursed over three decades at the Statehouse only to fall short of the votes needed to become law, or a governor's signature. Advocates, some of whom are now older-adult adoptees with medical ailments, claim one's original birth certificate can lead to vital medical, genealogical, and other related information about their birth parents so they can make informed health and medical decisions.

The six candidates vying for three open seats in New Jersey's Seventh Legislative District all say they stand for lowering taxes and job creation, but they differ on how they would achieve these goals. Among the candidates are two veteran lawmakers with more than 15 years of experience, two who served on the Delran Township Council, and a political neophyte. All 120 legislative seats across the state are up for grabs on Nov. 5. The Seventh District, which has one four-year Senate seat and two two-year assembly seats, covers most of Burlington County's riverfront municipalities and a few nearby towns in the county.

The wording is buried deep in the Christie administration's latest regulatory changes for public schools, a notation calling for removal of a single sentence from current regulations referring to certain required services and "corrective actions. " But the words in question have to do with anti-bullying measures and the responsibilities school districts have to address the problem. Needless to say, the change has touched off a bit of a tempest. Three of the main sponsors of the state's Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights (ABR)

WESTFIELD, N.J. - On the sloping lawn of the suburban home of lesbian grandmothers preparing to celebrate their 30th anniversary as a couple, state Democratic leaders said Tuesday that Gov. Christie should let Republican lawmakers "vote their conscience" on gay marriage. Christie vetoed a gay-marriage bill last year. In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court rulings last week affecting gay marriage, Democrats hope their Republican colleagues find the moxie to help override that veto, which would require a two-thirds majority.

Voters on Tuesday will launch Mayor Nutter on his second term, reshape City Council, pick two new judges for the state appellate courts, return several senators to Trenton, and elect a raft of other candidates to the lower courts and row offices.

State Senate elections in New Jersey should favor the incumbents, with credible opposition unfortunately being a rare commodity in most cases. Looking at the field in South Jersey, The Inquirer has the following recommendations: It's hard to believe that 10 years ago, Steve Sweeney was a relatively unknown freshman legislator from the Third District. Today, he's Senate president and the Legislature's most powerful Democrat. But Sweeney, 52, reached across the aisle to work hand in hand with Gov. Christie on state-employee pension and health-care reform, judicial appointments, and school funding.

The entire Legislature is up for election in New Jersey this year, but only two suburban Philadelphia primary races Tuesday are contested. Here's a recap of The Inquirer's recommendations: In the Seventh District, voters shouldn't hesitate to vote for the incumbent, DIANE ALLEN, in the Republican primary for State Senate. Allen has won respect from voters in the Democratic-leaning district in Burlington County. Allen is not a rubber stamp for Gov. Christie, and recently opposed him on cutting funds for women's health clinics and making it harder for poor families to qualify for Medicaid.

Where else can you find a candidate who wants to lower the minimum wage for teens - and senior citizens? An Olympian at risk of being tossed off the ballot? An ex-con candidate who was haled off to jail during a previous campaign? Tuesday's South Jersey legislative primary. And that's just the first half of this political year. In the Nov. 8 general election, all 120 seats will be up for grabs, and candidates are running in slightly redrawn districts. Control of the Legislature is a big question mark.
