Some conservatives lobby against him. The Associated Press Washington President Bush could rein the court to the right by nominating a bed- rock conservative to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. He could make history and perhaps pick up votes for the GOP by naming the first Hispanic to the court. Or he could choose a woman and keep intact the court's current balance of seven men and two women. Bush has had nearly five years to consider how to burn the "G.W.B" brand on the bench of the highest court in the land. Regardless of whom he picks, the closely divided court, which often splits 5-4 on key decisions, will very well end up with a more conservative bent. The question is, how far to the right will the post-O'Connor court be? And how much further to the right will it lean once 80-year-old Chief Justice William H. Rehn- quist, who is sick with thyroid cancer, retires and possibly gives Bush a second chance to shape the court? Legal experts on both sides speculate that the retirement of O'Connor raises the pros- pect that Bush will name Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. He is not a favorite of con- servatives, who continued to target the White House this weekend in their anti-Gonzales campaign, saying his views on issues such as abortion and affirmative action are not align- ed far enough to the right.

Will Cayuga land claim decision stand? Some of nation's top experts say ruling is bad, but add reversal is not likely. By Mike McAndrew Staff writer For 30 years. American Indian nations in New York won almost every major ruling in their land- claim lawsuits against New York, including a jury trial and two Supreme Court decisions. They seemed invincible. But in a span of 91 days, the federal courts have dealt com- plete reversals to the state's Indi- an tribes. The 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Cayuga Indian Nation cannot collect on its land claim. A lower court had awarded the 'Cayugas million in damages for land New York illegally acquired in 1789. But the appeals court de- cided the Cayugas will not get a penny because they waited too long to sue the state. With land claims, certainty is an elusive thing, but experts in Indian law can agree on some points about the changes: If the Cayuga decision stands. New York suddenly has a strong defense against land claims across New York. The state, eager to settle the Cayuga claim, agreed this winter to pay the Cayugas S150 million, give the Cayugas the right to op- erate casinos in the Catskills, and allow the Cayugas to buy EXPERTS, PAGE A-l 2 INSIDE with an expert: What does the lawyer who won the Sherrill case before the U.S. Supreme Court think about the latest court decision? PAGE A-12 COMING MONDAY Seven months ago. the Cayuga nations were poised to win per- mission to open huge casinos in the Catskills.

TONIGHT: CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH A COMET Maas Digital for DAN MAAS, a computer animation expert from Ithaca, created these stills that conceptualize Deep Impact's encounter with comet Tempel 1, set for a.m. Monday. By the time you read this, the flyby spacecraft will have released its impact vehicle. When it smashes into the comet at mph, it will throw up ice and dust that will provide researchers a glimpse of the material inside the comet, believed to be as ancient as the solar system itself.

He grew up in the shadow of Cornell University, his interest in space nurtured in chats with his fa- ther's friend, Carl Sagan. Dan Maas left Ithaca High School after his sophomore year and went straight to Cornell. By 2001, he was 20, a college graduate and had a computer animation company of his own.
