    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."

    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."

    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...

Patrons would feed the majestic bird, but were left with a feeling that it was wrong to keep the magnificent eagle confined to a cage where it was unable to fly free in the wild. Many called for the restaurant to free the bird and allow it to fly in the open skies the way nature intended. When pressure mounted, the owners relented and decided...

Joan S. Langbord plans a federal court lawsuit to try to recover them, her attorney, Barry H. Berke, said Wednesday. Langbord found the coins among the possessions of her father, longtime Philadelphia jeweler Israel Switt, who had acknowledged having sold some of the coins decades ago. She now operates her father's business. David Lebryk, acting director of the Mint, had announced in a news release...

The unemployment rate is the lowest since September 11, 2001, we have seen 25 consecutive months of job gains, and 15 straight quarters of positive GDP growth.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The population of bald eagles has rebounded so dramatically in Pennsylvania that the species may soon be moved off the state's endangered list and accorded the less serious status of a threatened species. The state was down to three nesting pairs by 1980, all in Crawford County, but the nesting population currently numbers at least 92 pairs and their range extends to about one-third of Pennsylvania's 67 counties. The Pennsylvania Game Commission will consider the change of status later this month, along with proposals to add two birds to the endangered list and move three from...

    Appearing like a winged fairy-tale creature poised on a pedestal, this object is actually a billowing tower of cold gas and dust rising from a stellar nursery called the Eagle Nebula. The soaring tower is 9.5 light-years or about 57 trillion miles high, about twice the distance from our Sun to the next nearest star. Stars in the Eagle Nebula are born in clouds of cold hydrogen gas that reside in chaotic neighborhoods, where energy from young stars sculpts fantasy-like landscapes in the gas. The tower may be a giant incubator for those newborn stars. A torrent of ultraviolet...

    Kobe Bryant Ruling a Step Towards Equity in Rape Trials By Glenn Sacks A Colorado judge issued a highly controversial decision late last month on a matter that should not be controversial. Judge Terry Ruckriegle ruled that Kobe Bryant, who is facing four years to life in prison for an alleged rape he claims was consensual sex, can introduce evidence that his accuser had other sexual encounters in the 72 hours before her medical examination for the alleged assault...

    During a campaign tour of the Apache Nation Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said he had a plan to increase every Native American's income by $40,000 a year. Senator Kerry refused repeated requests for details of his plan, however. He also told the Apaches that during his Senate career, he has voted 9,637 times for every Indian issue ever introduced. Before his departure, the Apache Tribe presented the Presidential candidate a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, Running Eagle. After Kerry left, tribal officials explained that Running Eagle is a bird so full of sh!t it can't fly.

    I'm trying to catch my breath from this weekend. Saturday was my son's Eagle Court of Honor. Sunday, he graduated from High School. We had about 100 guests at the CoH. We are sponsored by a church and that's where the ceremony was held. The family members present included my brother and some of my wife's relatives (my other brother and my parents live a few hours away and my parents are not well enough to travel). While my brother was a Scout, my wife's relatives all have all daughters and none of them know much about the Boy Scouts....

    Rare catch as golden eagle snatches bear cub in Norway Thu Apr 29, 4:37 AM ET OSLO, (AFP) - Norwegian zoologists were astonished to learn that a golden eagle recently snatched a small bear cub from its mother in what experts said was undoubtedly a first.

A golden eagle normally weighs about six kilogrammes (13 pounds),...

    EAGLE, Colo. - Kobe Bryant's attorneys went on the offensive yesterday, making controversial allegations about the sexual activity of the woman who has accused the Los Angeles Lakers star of rape. The defense said during a pretrial hearing and in a court filing that the woman has had sex with two prosecution witnesses and that she also had intercourse only hours after her encounter with Bryant. Early yesterday, Judge Terry Ruckriegle denied a motion by the prosecution to limit defense questioning of the woman. But after the lunch recess, the judge rescinded that decision. It was not entirely clear why...
