Maine worker discovers new hire is lost brother
http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5grZp4...

WALDOBORO, Maine Seven years into his tenure as a furniture mover for a local bedding retailer, Gary Nisbet was joined by a new colleague, Randy Joubert, who looked so much like him that customers asked whether they were brothers.

"We thought they were just trying to razz us," Joubert said.

Turns out the customers were on to something. They really are brothers and the attention they got after finding each other also has turned up a sister.

The two men were given up for adoption as babies about 35 years ago, then attended rival high schools and even lived in neighboring towns on the Maine coast before working together at Dow's Sleep Center in tiny Waldoboro and uncovering their relationship.
