A sheriff who is forever linked to the murders of the three young men even confided to commission investigators that he expected to be arrested. The revelations were included in more than 132,000 previously secret files made public Tuesday under federal oourt order. In its heyday, the agency's investigators anc snitches flooded the commission with every conceivable tidbit o" fact and fiction on .groups and individuals they considered communists or threats to white rule. Reports filed from June 1964 to January 1965 by commission 'investigator A.L. Hopkins quote angry lawmen in Neshoba County, •where the three men were murdered, complaining bitterly of being ' kept out of the loop. As early as July 2, 1964 — 33 days before the bodies would be 'found — Sheriff Lawrence Rainey told Hopkins he expected to be t picked up by the FBI as a suspect in the disappearance of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwdmer. Chancy, of Meridian, and New Yorkers Schwemer and Goodman WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans think they have concocted a trap for Democrats eager to use billions of dollars from any tobacco settlement for anti-smoking programs. To get at that money, Democrats first will have to vote to take it from the popular Medicare program. A $1.73 trillion budget for fiscal 1999 that Senate Budget Committee Chairman Pete Domenici presented to his panel Tuesday would use the billions any tobacco bill produces — perhaps from cigarette tax increases — to buttress Medicare, the health-care program for elderly and disabled Americans that will need more money when Baby Boomers begin retiring in a decade. disappeared June 21 after going to investigate Methodist Church in Sandtown, a community sippi county. a fire at Mount Zion n the central Missis- Building boom hits Colorado "with a vengeance ' PARKER, Colo. — When Paul Kroehnke moved to Parker six •years ago, the bedroom community was home to foxes and antelope •playing in the fields next to his horse farm.

Or a tax collection agency that's reorganized so "any run-around burden (is) on the IRS" and not on the customer. Those are among the 200 proposals to improve IRS customer service in a report Vice President Al Gore plans to unveil today. The plan, the result of a 10-month study, would give Internal Revenue Service field executives authority to issue one-day "emergency tax refunds" in hardship cases. And it envisions new technology to route taxpayers' telephone calls so they'll be answered faster and more accurately. "We must have an IRS that is on the taxpayers' side, providing the help they need," said the report, obtained by The Associated Press. "We know we have a long way to go. But the good news is that the reform of the IRS has begun." Mac is a black and white male McNab cross. Friendly and outgoing are his top qualities.
