    Bald eagle nest found in Phila.PHILADELPHIA - Wildlife authorities have found the first bald eagle nest in the city in more than 200 years and hope the occupants will produce offspring, state officials said. The nest "demonstrates the resilience of this species and its apparent growing tolerance to human activity," said Dan Brauning, a supervisor with the state Game Commission, in a statement Friday. Officials are not disclosing the nest's exact location, to avoid disturbing it, but it is being closely monitored, the commission said. "We don't know if the nest will result in the pair successfully breeding and laying...

    WASHINGTON, March 5, 2007 – The “Eagle’s Watch Foundation” maintains a low-flying profile as it employs a bird’s-eye view in finding ways to support U.S. servicemembers and their families. Established on June 6, 2003 –- the anniversary of D-Day – the foundation sponsors celebrity visits to wounded servicemembers, sends care packages to deployed troops, and performs many other military morale-building deeds, said David E. Minyard, the non-profit foundation’s president and chief executive officer. Myriad contacts keep him in touch with the needs of military members and their families, Minyard said. “There needs to be someone that can react quickly...

    The people of the United States want an end to the war in Iraq. The elections in November were a clear repudiation of the Bush administration's war of aggression. The new Congress, however, has no intention of ending the war. Bush and the Pentagon generals are determined to prolong the war. Tens of thousands of more troops will be sent to Iraq. We are building a massive antiwar movement on the national and local level. Only the action of the people will stop the war. We are returning to the Pentagon because the Iraq war has resulted in more than...

    JUNEAU, Alaska - About 10,000 Juneau residents briefly lost power after a bald eagle lugging a deer head crashed into transmission lines. "You have to live in Alaska to have this kind of outage scenario," said Gayle Wood, an Alaska Electric Light & Power spokeswoman. "This is the story of the overly ambitious eagle who evidently found a deer head in the landfill." The bird, weighed down by the deer head, apparently failed to clear the transmission lines, she said. A repair crew found the eagle dead, the deer head nearby. The power was out for less than 45 minutes...

    (AP) DES MOINES, Iowa A bald eagle owes its life to the sharpshooting skills of an Iowa conservation officer. Though the bird has yet to offer any thanks, Jason Sandholdt is getting plenty of recognition from those who saw him use a single bullet last weekend to free the bird from a branch that hung over a cliff at Lake Red Rock. "There were accusations of sheer luck," said Brian Lange, one of the kayakers who discovered the bird Saturday and alerted authorities. He added: "It was really a heroic shot."

    We've seen it on the F-14 Tomcat (oh may you fly again someday), F-18 Hornet, F-18F Super Hornet, B-1B Lancer, F-4 Phantom, B-2 Spirit, and yes, even on the Space Shuttle and a Saturn V rocket. But when was the last time an F-15E Strike Eagle was photographed with one, especially given the numerous photos of F-15's pulling vapor? This awesome photo was taken on 11 November 2006 at the 2006 Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show at NAS Pensacola, Florida, USA.

    The red-hot real estate market shows no sign of cooling, but there could be a cloud on the horizon. The shortage of a humble but irreplaceable material could slow the growth of new housing. In parts of the Pacific Northwest, for instance, there's not nearly enough cement, 15% less than last year even as demand has climbed by 30%. "It's definitely affected our bottom line," says Dave Bertsch, president of Champion Concrete Pumping. "If it continues, we're going to have some layoffs. We are going to have to liquidate some equipment. It's a domino effect."

    The Mexican people aren't the only ones who realize that the "country" known as Mexico is no longer a civilized nation. Thousands of animals are leaving the 3rd world cesspool that should be an oil rich world superpower. El Cujo, a miniature Chihuahua who recently crossed the border complained about Mexico's poor health conditions. "I may eat crap, nibble my butt, and look like a rat with acromegaly, but I don't want to live in a country that has to send ambulances to another country for emergency healthcare. El Cujo also knows that US doctors don’t extort families of foreigners...

    After watching the deterioration of the dog park he frequently visits with his pet, an East Side boy decided he wanted to fix it up a little. Raymond Snyder, a 14-year-old who is committed to becoming an Eagle Scout, will begin work on the off-leash dog area at Palo Verde Park, 300 S. Mann Ave., today. He plans to complete the work on April 22. He chose to take on the task after noticing cracks in tables, water containers for dogs that created a muddy mess, and holes in the ground that left dogs with minor injuries. Even his own...

Wartchow, squad leader, Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment. “I wanted to do something for my country that would make people proud. I also wanted to build upon the leadership skills that I learned when I was an Eagle Scout, so I knew the military was...

    RACINE - Racine Unified School District principals will decide if the National Rifle Association's "Eddie Eagle" coloring books will be used in their elementary schools, the district said Thursday. But to get the controversial coloring books - which were approved for Racine Police Department officers to use in gun-safety training classes by the City Council this week - an elementary principal would have to ask the Police Department to bring the books to their school. If that's done, the material would go before the district's curriculum committee, which would determine whether the books meet curriculum standards. "The district then could...
