    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    One of the most popular rock bands of all time has finally managed to offend--not for its songs, but for how it sells them. There's a lesson here in technology, new business models, and hidebound "progressives." The first new album from the Eagles in over a decade, "Long Road Out of Eden," has already sold more than a million copies, hitting Billboard's #1 in its first week. It's the kind of blockbuster that used to pay Christmas bonuses at the big record companies, only this album wasn't produced by a big record company. The Eagles released it themselves and are...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Just three seasons after being separated by just three points in Super Bowl XXXIX, the gap between the Patriots and Eagles has widened to historic proportions: Philly is a 23˝-point underdog. That is the largest point spread for an NFL game that does not involve an expansion team, according to odds-making experts in Las Vegas. On Dec. 5, 1976, the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers were 24-point underdogs to the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers covered easily, winning 42-0. "Nowadays, you don't see too many spreads over 16 or 17 points," said Sean Van Patten, an...

    Rookie kicker Mason Crosby's 42-yard field goal with two seconds left gave the Green Bay Packers a 16-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Packers benefited from a second major mistake by the Eagles' special teams, as J.R. Reed bobbled a punt with 59 seconds remaining and Green Bay's Jarrett Bush recovered to give Green Bay the ball at the Philadelphia 31. Reed had replaced returner Greg Lewis, whose muffed punt led to a Packers touchdown in the first quarter.

    The number of bald eagles in Wyoming has grown to 185 breeding pairs, a population recovery that has exceeded expectations from ornithologists who predicted much lower recovery rates when the birds were first granted federal protection in 1967. The bald eagle population is soaring nationally, as well, with the number of breeding pairs in the lower 48 states climbing from a low in 1963 of 417 to more than 9,700 today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Monday. The population recovery offers evidence to some scientists that federal protection of the birds under the Endangered Species Act should be...

    "Peace is not merely the absence of war, but the presence of justice, of law, of order- in short, of government." -Albert Einstein Usually, something makes "news" because it is an event that is an uncommon occurrence. If it were common, it would be ordinary and not raise an eyebrow or be worthy of a second glance. That's in part, why tragedies and sensationalized stories occupy the headlines and frontpage news. One guess as to whether the ones in this photo are pro-victory conservative patriots or pro-surrender liberal hippies: Ryan Foshee, left, Keith Clark and Michael Rigby play melodies on...

    Is there anyone here on FR who went to the counter protest this past weekend in Washington, DC? The reason I am asking, I was watching FNC and the reporter was talking to someone from the Eagles. His name was James Robson. The surname Robson is prominant in my Family Tree. Does anyone know this James Robson?

    This is an AAR from the General Discussion Forum on AR15.com with some great pics. Just click on the links and you'll see them. "I was proud to attend today's "Gathering of Eagles" (GOE) counter-protest to the large anti-war march to the Pentagon and was pleased find the attendance by many loyal veterans and Americans. Those carrying American flags and backing our men and women in uniform arrived and participated in very large numbers. I was impressed and pleased. The dingbats were also in very large numbers and behaved shamefully. They didn't do so without direct, loud and clear commentary...

    As war protesters marched toward Arlington Memorial Bridge en route to the Pentagon yesterday, they were flanked by long lines of military veterans and others who stood in solidarity with U.S. troops and the Bush administration's cause in Iraq. Many booed loudly as the protesters passed, turned their backs to them or yelled, "If you don't like America, get out!" Several thousand vets, some of whom came by bus from New Jersey, car caravans from California or flights from Seattle or Michigan, lined the route from the bridge and down 23rd Street, waving signs such as "War There Or War...

    We just got back from the rally today and it was phenomenal! I want all freepers to check out the great video and commentary we recorded (it was windy!). It was great to see all of you there.

    Today CSPAN decided: a) not to cover the Gathering of Eagles rally, and b) to cover the Workers World Party's rally against America.With this deplorable decision, CSPAN has spit on the American military veteran. How can CSPAN make such a blatantly biased decision? Will they defend their decision, saying that "our" rally doesn't have any celebrities like Gold Star mother, Cindy Sheehan?What about the Gold Star mothers on our side who will be speaking? They may not have the name recognition that Cindy Sheehan has, but CSPAN viewers have a right (and an expectation) that their voices should carry equal...
