Family, friends, new babies greet 600 soldiers By Pedro Ramirez III Staff writer The first of sol- diers who have spent the last year in Iraq returned to Fort Drum Wednesday to cheering, crying relatives and friends. The first 300 soldiers with the iOth Mountain Division's 2nd Brigade arrived by plane at Wheeler-Sack Army Air- field Wednesday morning. A second plane with another 300 soldiers arrived late in the afternoon. The rest of the brigade's troopers will return on seven flights through the following week, said Ben Able, a Fort Dram spokesman. As the 2nd Brigade returns home, the 10th Mountain's 1st and 3rd Brigade are preparing to leave for Iraq and Afghani- stan over the next several months. Once all of 2nd Brigade's soldiers are home, the 10th Mountain will have no troops in Iraq until the 1st Brigade deploys there in late summer to early fall, said Staff Sgt. Russ Rozean, speaking for the 1st Brigade. On Wednesday about four hours after the first group of 2nd Brigade .soldiers landed, the 10th Mountain held a wel- come home ceremony at Ma- grath Gym. Children held up signs welcoming home their dads. Wives and girlfriends whooped and cried when the column of desert camouflage- clad soldiers marched into the gym.

By Meghan Rubado and Debra J. Groom Staff writers Onondaga County sheriffs deputies accused 39 young adults of possession of alcohol at two parties: one a house party in Onondaga and the second a going-away party in Skaneateles. Sheriff Kevin Walsh said he was dismayed that a parent who was home during the Onondaga party said he didn't know it was going on. "The major problem is there are a lot of parents who are still willing to open their homes, and that can have tragic results for the Walsh said. At a May 27 barn party at 4408 Jordan Road, Skaneateles, Iwo dozen people under the legal drinking age of 21 were charged with possession of alcohol with intent to consume, according to the sheriffs office. A June 5 party at 3968 Stetson Circle, Onondaga, left 15 under- age people charged with the same Alcoholic; Beverage Con- trol law violation and an adult homeowner charged with two misdemeanors, said John D'Er- edita, spokesman for the sher- iffs office. In both cases, noise com- plaints from neighbors sent dep- uties to the addresses. High school students in the Wesl Genesee district intended the Onondaga party and students from Skaneateles and Marcellus high schools were among the guests at the Skaneateles party, said Capt. Peter Bronstad, of ihe sheriffs South Community Sta- lion. Both parties also involved recent high school graduates. Deputies had parents pick up their children from the parties.

The Associated Press Largo, Fla. The autopsy released Wednesday on Terri Schiavo backed her husband's contention that she was in a per- sistent vegeta- tive state, find- ing she was severely and irreversibly brain-damaged and blind as well. It also found no evi- dence that she Schwvo was strangled or otherwise abused before she collapsed. Yet medical examiners could not say for certain what caused her sudden 1990 collapse, long thought to have been brought on by an eating disorder. The findings vindicated Mi- chael Schiavo in his long and vitriolic battle with bis in-laws, who insisted her condition was not hopeless and suggested that their daughter was the victim of violence by their son-in-law. f.HMiMi ;
