Greeted by blasts of water cannon, the first planeload of 100 Louisiana Anja Niedringha js The Associated Press National Guard troops returned home this weekend from Iraq to look for their families.

Water receding; hunt for corpses continues News service reports Cadaver dogs and boatloads of fo- rensic workers fanned out Saturday across New Orleans to collect the corpses left behind by Hurricane Ka- trina. Cleanup crews towed away aban- doned cars and even began readying a hotel for reopening. At City Hall, running water had been restored, and one engineer said he expected the building to have power soon. Workers carted city property records from the basement, saying they would be refrigerated to prevent mold from damaging them. Bulldozers pushed heaps of chairs, sleeping bags and other discarded items into giant piles at the conven- tion center, the chaotic site where thousands initially took refuge before being evacuated a week ago. Dump trucks were hauling the debris away. About 700 city residents were tem- porarily allowed to return to their homes on Saturday to check their property and to retrieve valuables in largely affluent neighborhoods like Spanish Fort on the northern edge of the city along Lake Pontchartrain and in the Lower Garden District, flush along the crescent the Mississippi River forms around this city. Despite missing 300 officers from his force, Police Chief Eddie Compass was upbeat as he re- ported that 200 arrests had been made since the hurricane.

Your government Counties, state will collect about million more this year in sales taxes on gas. By Elizabeth Doran Staff writer Higher gas prices are filling up tax coffers for state and coun- ty governments in New York. Local counties are expected to share in an estimated million windfall in sales taxes this year as pump prices skyrocket. The state of New York also will realize about million in extra tax revenue, according to the state Department of Taxation and Finance. New York, with the highest gas taxes in the United States, is one cc six states that charge sales tax on gasoline and diesel fuel sales. That means the higher the price, the more sales tax col- lected. Sales tax is the only tax on HIGHER, PAGE A-ll Roberts confirmation hearings begin Monday Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee begins confirmation hearings on John Roberts, President Bush's nominee to become the next chief justice of the United States Supreme Court. In the past half-century, only two other presidents have named a chief justice. At age 50, Roberts would be the youngest chief since John Marshall was appointed in 1801. If confirmed, he will be the youngest member of the court he leads, and, arguably, the second most powerful person in the country. There is great national interest in candidates for the high court. Roberts' appointment will last a lifetime and confirmation hearings give the American public its only opportunity to consider his views on the issues that shape our society and directly affect each of our lives: civil rights, employment policy, presidential powers, privacy, women's rights, abortion, property rights, the death penalty, church-state separation, campaign financing and limits of federal power whether the White House, Congress or the states should make the calls. And so, we have hearings to decide whether Roberts is the person for the job. What will they ask Judge Roberts? A guide to what the Senate Judiciary Committee will likely ask Judge John Roberts about during Supreme Court nomination hearings, part legal seminar and part political theater. The hearings start at noon Monday. Pius: Roberts' schedule for the week, and the responsibilities of chief justice of the Supreme Court.
