STORY, PAGE A-3 Corrections By John O'Brien Staff writer A Broome County man accused of try- ing to abduct a girl in Syracuse last week was charged Wednesday with receiving child pornography on his computer. Federal investigators will compare those images with pictures of children in a databank of victims at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Chil- dren, according to a federal prosecutor.

If he hadn't been charged, Gilkeson would have been re- leased from the Onondaga County Justice Center jail on a state charge on bail, which a relative had posted Tuesday night. Gilkeson, 49, of Kirkwood, was charged Saturday with a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child after a passer-by, Monique Wil- liams, stopped him from driving away with a 10-year-old girl in his car outside a convenience store on South Salina Street. After his arrest, FBI agents and Syra- cuse police seized Gilkeson's computer from his home and found "several" pic- tures of children in sexually explicit posi- tions, according to an affidavit from FBI Special Agent James Lyons. The images of children on Gilkeson's computer will be compared to the nation- al databank of child victims to try to find a match, according to Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney John Duncan. That's a standard investigative technique when police find pictures of underage children in sexually explicit photographs, he said. Duncan would not say how many por- nographic pictures police found on Gilke- DETENTION, PAGE A-8 'WE'RE A LOCAL BAND, BUT WE'RE TREATED LIKE ROCK STARS' Peter Chen Staff photographer JOHN BUCK (center; and Morris Tarbell (right) play with their band, Corn Bred, Friday at Wacky Wyatt's in Baldwinsville.

Subscription questions? Call 470-NEWS By Sarah Moses Contributing writer The Smithsonian's Na- tional Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., will mark its one-year anniversary this September with a party. Arid Corn Bred, an all American Indian rhythm-and- blues band from Central New York, will provide the enter- tainment. Four of Corn Bred's five members are from the Onon- daga Nation and the fifth member is from the Akwe- sasne Mohawk Nation. They will travel to Washington Sept. 21 to perform there for the third time in less than a year. In January, the band played at the American Indian Inaugural Ball and in June played at a private corpora- tion's party. Sept. 21, the band will play from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Poto- mac Atrium at the museum. The event is free with admis- sion to the museum. "We're a local band, but we're treated like rock said Morris Tarbell, a Mo- hawk and lead guitarist. "They fly us down there, pick us up by a limo service and put us up in a nice hotel." Com Bred was started in 1999 by lead singer Jerome Lazore, bass guitarist John Buck and drummer Lenny CROWDS, PAGE A-8 Studies: Health care gap shrinks But doctors say black-white differences continue on more complex treatments. The Associated Press Boston The health care gap between blacks and whites is closing on many simple, cheap medical treatments, but deeper disparities stubbornly persist for more complex and costly proce- dures, new research suggests. The findings from three large federally funded studies indicate it's possible to equalize health care between races, but it won't happen quickly or easily. "Things that are simpler and less expensive are easier said Dr. Ashish Jha, of the Harvard School of Public Health. He said more progress probably won't happen "by small tinkering with the sys- tem." He led one of the three studies published in today's New Eng- land Journal of Medicine. The research offers some of the first evidence that racial disparities have narrowed, at least for some patients and treatments. Since the 1980s, many studies have documented racial gaps in j the standard of health care. They are blamed on economic, cultur- al and even biological differ- ences between races. Blacks have less access to better doc- tors, hospitals and health plans, studies indicate. Research also shows that the medical system treats whites and blacks differently, even when they are the same in nearly every- way.
