Steven Spielberg is expected to be on hand as filming begins for the War of the Worlds. Around 600 extras were chosen from last week's open casting call at Rockbridge County High School to be national guardsmen or survivors of the alien attack. Over the past month Hollywood Scouts have been looking for warehouse space for props and catering services, lodging for the crew, and of course a site to shoot the film.

Nearly 400 Harley Davidson owners joined the marines on a Toys for Tots ride.
