County records show the im- prisoned kidnapper's former house with about three-quarters of an acre of land was sold to two buyers, including the Cali- fornia lawyer who has repre- sented one of Jamelske's victims. Charles A. Bonner, the lawyer, and Ishmael R. Wilson paid for the property at 7070 Highbridge Road in DeWitt on Nov. 2, according to county records. Jamelske Wilson is the brother of Ja- melske's final victim, a 16-year-old girl who broke away from the kidnapper long enough to call her sister, Angela Wilson, to get help from police. Angela Wilson said Tuesday that her brother is in Iraq in the Army but wanted to buy the house to give the victims some closure. She referred all other questions to their lawyer, Bonner, who was not available for comment Tuesday. Since the girl's ordeal, Wilson said her family has become ac- tivists for sex abuse victims. The family has been trying to talk to people about it and encouraging them to step in, even if it seems socially awkward, if a situation seems strange. She pointed to the example of Monique Wil- liams, who police say thwarted James H. Gilkeson from kidnap- ping a 10-year-old girl from Syr- acuse's South Side on Aug. 13. Wilson said her sister is still trying to heal. She is focused on raising her son and moving for- ward with her life, she said. Jamelske, 70, held the girls and women captive, each for pe- riods of between two months and three years in the bunker at the home from 1988 until his cap- ture in 2003. He is serving 18 years to life in state prison. Bonner and attorney Anthony Adorante, of Camillus, are trus- LIGHTS ON THE LAKE LIGHT UP ONONDAGA LAKE A CAR passes through a castle display near the end of the Lights on the Lake exhibit at Onondaga Lake Park Tuesday night.

Indians sell to third of area smokers Experts say that hurts retoflers, smokers and local and state treasuries. By Glenn Coin Staff writer About one of every three Cen- tral New York smokers buys cig- arettes at Indian smoke shops, a state survey says. That hurts non-Indian retail- ers, local governments and the smokers themselves, experts say. "Everybody loses when non- Indian New Yorkers choose to buy cigarettes from untaxed said Jim Calvin, presi- dent of the New York Associa- tion of Convenience Stores. According to an annual report of the state's stop-smoking cam- paign, about 36 percent of Cen- tral New York smokers surveyed said they bought cigarettes from an Indian shop "all the time" or "sometimes" in the previous year. About 50 percent said they had bought cigarettes "at least once" from an Indian outlet in the previous year. That's similar to a survey done in Onondaga County last year, which showed 54 percent of smokers had bought cigarettes on an Indian shop in the previous year.
