GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) _ New information shows legendary outlaw

brothers Frank and Jesse James may have been tied to the Missouri

Ku Klux Klan. Amateur historian Ralph Ganis consulted on a Jesse

James documentary to air on P-B-S. Ganis says the James brothers

and Missouri cohorts with Tar Heel links helped the Klan terrorize

North Carolina counties that accepted changes after the Civil War.
