An attorney for residents in the Allegheny West neighborhood of Pittsburgh said they Will suffer "material, negative effects" from "loud, drunk, aggressive" fans at football games. The Allegheny West Civic Council filed a petition to intervene in the liquor license application for the new stadium by Philadelphia-based Aramark, which wants to sell beer, wine and liquor at the field. The state Liquor Control Board is scheduled to consider the applica- tion Friday. At that time, any objec- tors can voice their opinions, said Molly McGowan, a spokeswoman for the board. Pat Sorek, an attorney for the res- idents, said he will seek to have the hearing postponed so he can have more time to prepare his case. Sorek wants to gather documents from the Liquor Control Board anil police. In the past, some fans have dri- ven on sidewalks, urinated on side- walks and acted in other danger- ous said. ,c "It's interesting that they want to be heard now after 30 years of Rivers Stadium said Ron Wahl, a spokesman for the Steelers. "We believe we have a responsible liquor sales policy. We have a very strict policy where we cut off alcohol sales at the end of the Michael McDonald, regional gen- eral manager of Aramark, said if beer and liquor were not sold at Heinz Field, it would change the game-day experience for some fans. Allegheny West's challenge comes after the neighborhood group chal- lenged noise levels and signs at the stadium. The group said eight proposed signs at Heinz Fielci amount to bill- vboai'ds and are not allowed under city laws. The city's Zoning Board of Adjustment will consider sign issues Aug. 16.

EMEHY StnffWriter Minutes after winning the first stage of Tom-de'Toona 2001, Montreal native Genevieve Jeanson was munching on a homemade dinner cooked by her teammate, Manon Jutras. Appointed as the chef of Team Rona, Jutras had cooked a chick- en salad dinner with green chicken and lettuce after Tuesday evening's Altoona Mirror Prologue. "It's a balanced Jutras said of the chicken salad. "It has protein, fats and carbohydrates. You need all three in your diet." Looks alone reveal the two cyclists know about healthy diets and nutrition. Like most profes- sional cyclists, Jutras rind Jeanson don't have an ounce of: excess bulk on their finely tuned physiques. Their training includes a balance of rigorous workouts, rest and relaxation, and a healthy diet with nutrition that keeps them exceptionally fit. Just as cyclists have different workout routines, they also sub- scribe to different diets. Please see A7 MORE INSIDE A day in the life of cyclists.

PAGE C7 Ridge administration requires child-care background checks BY JEANETTE KREBS capitolwire.com a shift of pol- icy, the Ridge administration decided the state will not pay peo- ple with child-abuse or criminal records who care for low-income children.' The Public Welfare Department phase in a requirement that relatives and neighbors who watch three or fewer children will have their backgrounds checked, and if they have a record, they will not get a state subsidy. The plan exempts grandparents and aunts and uncles, which has some advocates and Democrats complaining the plan does not go far enough. It is far from the policy of a few months ago when the department said it would begin doing back- ground checks but would continue to pay child-care providers who had a child-abuse or criminal record if the parents wanted them to contin- ue watching their children. That caused some critics such as Auditor General Robert Casey Jr. to say the state would knowingly pay convicted criminals and child abusers to watch children. The new policies please some of the administration's former crit- ics. "This is a good day for children and their said Sen. Allyson Schwartz, D-PhUadelphia, who had been raising the issue of the lack of background checks around the state and championing it for more than four years. She said she was unhappy the phase-in period was not faster it will be implemented over the next year but otherwise was compli- mentary of the new policy. Schwartz said she believes the department made the change because of mounting pressure. The governor has taken it on the chin from child advocacy groups, Democrats and newspaper editori- als. House Majority Leader John Perzelm, R-Philadelphia, said he thought the previous plan was a bad idea. Please see A7 INSIDE TODAY News, notes, quotes and votes from last week in politics.
