How to use mill in a sentence?

  1. Dante Scala:

    It's one of the most interesting counties that no one ever talks about in New Hampshire because it's got this mix of polar opposites, very strong liberal Democrats and Tea Party Republicans. It should be a place where Donald Trump does well if he's going to do well anywhere, in working class mill cities like say Rochester and Somersworth.

  2. Brett Kavanaugh:

    It is not as if it is just a run-of-the-mill case that was decided and never been reconsidered, but Casey specifically reconsidered it, applied the stare decisis factors and decided to reaffirm it, that makes Casey a precedent on precedent.

  3. Ruth Beier:

    The city also points out that Masterpiece Cakeshop – in which a Colorado baker won after being sued for not making a cake for a gay wedding – was decided on narrow grounds due to the outright hostility the civil rights commission in Colorado expressed toward Christianity. There was no such hostility in this case, it said. But the farm's lawyers point to a statement made by East Lansing Mayor Ruth Beier, who was previously a member of the city council, as relevant. A photo of Country Mill Farms, which is in a long-running legal battle with the city of East Lansing.

  5. Carrie Severino:

    This President has been brazen about his willingness to take action that is normally reserved to Congress, the fact that the Court added the constitutional question means that some justices recognized that this is not a run of the mill act of prosecutorial discretion, but a novel and controversial power grab.
