CARLISLE, Pa. - To the uninitiated observer there is something a little disorienting about being in a room with 300-odd years worth of living military history reenactors, where full-dress French and Indian War militia rub shoulders with World War II German Wehrmacht soldiers, as a World War I British soldier trades tips about where to buy boots with a Russian Army paratrooper. A glance around the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle at Saturday's reenactor recruitment event shows a lot of fresh, young faces wearing uniforms of all types.

Just before the gleaming fire truck broke through the red, white and blue ribbon on the rebuilt bridge over Conodoguinet Creek, Gov. Rendell stood at a chilly lectern to tout the two-lane span as a symbol of the federal stimulus bill's success in Pennsylvania.

The papers aren't signed yet, but team owner Mark Cuban confirmed in an e-mail to the Associated Press last night that a verbal deal is in place.
