    Your freelancers aren't held together with paper clips?

    Carlisle, the town: Small college town (Dickinson), has some historic charm and some truck stop diveyness. Been too long since I saw the paper to offer comments there.

    Yeah, that is Carlisle in a nutshell. 2 hours to Baltimore, 2 1/2 hours to Philly, 3-4 to Pittsburgh. Used to host Redskins' camp; no longer.

    I had a college professor at East Carolina from Carlisle. He always spoke fondly of his hometown.
    That's all I got.

    Pop Warner and Jim Thorpe had some success there.

    So did Billy Owens and Jeff Lebo. Part of a fourpeat in state basketball.

    With all due respect to Owens and Lebo, they didn't revolutionize their sport while in Carlisle.

    This was an in-house promotion so I'm gonna guess a Sports Reporter job opening up in the next few days.
