    GOLDENDALE, Wash. — A golden eagle was killed by a wind turbine blade at a southwest Washington wind farm, a state biologist says. The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Wash., reported that it is the first known eagle fatality caused by a Washington wind project. The 10-pound bird had a broken wing and two broken legs after the April 27 accident at Goodnoe Hills Wind Project southeast of Goldendale, said Travis Nelson, the state's lead biologist on wind power issues. "This is certainly not the outcome that anyone who was involved in planning and permitting this operation would have wanted, especially...

    MYFOX NATIONAL) - TMZ reports that Eagles frontman Don Henley is suing a Republican Senate candidate in California for copyright infringement for creating online videos that parody two of Henley's songs, "The Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants to Do Is Dance." State Assembleyman Charles DeVore says the parodies are protected under the First Amendment. DeVore's parody lyrics attack President Barack Obama and California Senator Barbara Boxer. YouTube initially removed the videos from their site at Henley's request, then added them back at DeVore's and told Henley they would only take them down again if he filed a lawsuit....

    Protesters rally outside Philadelphia Eagles owner's home By Vernon Clark Inquirer Staff Writer Twisting a Philadelphia sports slogan, about 30 protesters stood at the gate of Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie's Wynnewood mansion yesterday and shouted, "Pay, Eagles, pay!" Under the watch of about a half-dozen Lower Merion Township police officers, members of the activist group ACORN held a half-hour "tailgating" protest, complete with grilled hot dogs, at dusk. The protesters contended that the Eagles still have not shared with the city money from rents on luxury boxes from when the team played at Veterans Stadium. No one from the house...

    A mystery is believed to be solved into how a half-dozen eagles were poisoned in Enumclaw. It began last week when neighbors discovered the protected birds, usually perched in trees just outside Enumclaw, dying in a field. "I got a ring at my doorbell at seven o'clock in the morning from somebody with an eagle in their arms, and she thought it was dead," said Bruce Richards with the state Department of Wildlife. Veterinarians soon determined the birds were poisoned. But nobody in town could figure out how, or whether anyone was doing it maliciously. They knew they had to...

    It was twilight at Laird's Landing, a barren, lonely ranch 20 miles from the nearest town, when bald eagles began swooping over the tundra to perch in a leafless clump of cottonwoods.Before the full moon inched over a treeless ridge in the distance, more than 40 of the regal raptors had arrived for their nightly roost. Sometimes, the trees hold 130 or more."How can you not love this?" said retired Mare Island rigger and eagle aficionado Charlotte Ann Kisling, as the temperature dropped below 20. "It's so peaceful, and so awesome. I don't care about TV or movies - this...

    This coming Sunday, Gov. Edward G. Rendell will be all out for both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers in their NFL conference championship games. But if both teams happen to win, well, then it is all Eagles. Rendell told the New York Times that he has to be loyal. “If it costs me some political points, that’s life.” Rendell is a rabid Eagles fan, and is pretty sure that rabid Steelers fans would understand his Eagle loyalty. “The casual fans might be upset, but I don’t care,” he said. During World War II, the Steelers and the Eagles...

    The Philadelphia Eagles playoff lives -- left for dead one week ago -- had a pulse at 4 p.m. Sunday thanks to an upset win by Oakland in Tampa Bay coupled by a Houston victory over Chicago. That pulse turned into a full fledged cardiac workout as Philadelphia scored 31 points in a nine minute span in a 44-6 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The defense keyed the onslaught with a pair of long fumble returns. "I've never been a part of anything like this, obviously," 13-year veteran safety Brian Dawkins said. "For the guys to pull together the way...

    It will be the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) against the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) that suck up all of the oxygen in this state this weekend, not Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain. The famed east vs. west rivalry was once a singular team, which happened back in 1943 during World War II, when both teams lost many players to military service. The popular, though not official, nickname of the team was "The Steagles". But the Obama and McCain campaigns will certainly make every effort to remind game goers at tail gate celebrations that there is a race going on here...

    MORA, Minn. -- A Mora woman has paid a $2,500 fine in relation to the October, 2007 shooting of a bald eagle. On Oct. 10, Minnesota DNR officers received a complaint from the Minnesota “Turn in Poachers” hotline that a bald eagle had been killed in Mora. Katherine K. Tramm, 48, paid the fine July 15. After being listed as endangered since 1967, the bald eagle was removed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species in 2007. "This case is a clear indication that the DNR and the USF&WS are working diligently to protect and preserve our natural...
  • “Out of Iran” Moonbats’ Parade Rained On By Freepers, Eagles, Patriots - Wash. D.C. Aug. 2,2008

    We gathered on the north side of Lafayette Square at 2:30 to scope out the terrain. The moonbats had permitted Lafayette Square and the sidewalk in front of the White House. Not that the less than 100 “Out of Iran” and pro-Palestinian groups needed that much space. All in all, their small group looked pitiful in light of their claim that a majority of Americans supported their anarchical views. Even when the moonbats persuaded some on lookers to march with them for a short time, they were pitiful. For you D.C. FReepers, the regulars were there, Squeegie, Princess (in leather...

    Lurker Bill, BufordP and I arrived at Westminster fresh from the corners at Olney about 20 minutes late. But that still gave us an hour and a half standing with Eagles and fellow FReepers PatrioticMarineMom and RockerMom2MyHero. PatrioticMarineMom (the organizer of this Gathering/FReep) and RockerMom2MyHero (co-organizer) had already been there for about 25 minutes, getting honks, waves and cheers from passing supporters. And when we arrived, we received a warm welcome from the Westminster Eagles and the passing supporters. The five of us received the honks, waves or shouts of support from almost every passing car. Being in the old...

    Jim Doyle held a wooden frame displaying the numerous medals showing his service in World War II. Many would call him a hero, but that does not change his own perception. The Pearl Harbor survivor — who will join other survivors at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7, on the footsteps of the Capitol Building to honor those who lost their lives more than 66 years ago — talked about the true heroes. "I don't think doing my duty makes me a hero," Doyle said. "I think the real heroes are the kids who got killed and never came back." Doyle...
