Stripmining is "warfare"
As giant energy companies obtain federal leases to mine coal over vast areas of the West, Senator Gaylord Nelson is leading an effort to halt stripmining's "environmental warfare on our own country."
Eagle shooters charged
A U.S. Attorney has charged four Utah men with killing a bald eagle and 12 golden eagles near Saratoga, Wyo. -- the first charges to be filed in the alleged killing of some 700-800 eagles in southern Wyoming and northern Colorado.
