I can't login to leave a comment. What do I do? http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/1267-i-cant-login-to-leave-a-comment-what-do-i-do.html http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/1267-i-cant-login-to-leave-a-comment-what-do-i-do.html

First, try clicking on "Remember Me" when you login to eNews Park Forest. If that doesn't solve the problem, the problem may be your browser.

If you are using a Windows PC, we strongly recommend using the latest versions of Firefox or Internet Explorer.  The browser is key.  Earlier browsers do not have the resilience later browsers do.

As of this writing, you want Firefox version 2, and Internet Explorer 7.

If you are still using Internet Explorer 6, you should upgrade to version 7 for security reasons.  IE7 is much more secure than IE6.

If you're using a MAC, you're probably wondering what all this fuss is about.

Can any club or organization advertise here for free? http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/80-can-any-club-or-organization-advertise-here-for-free.html http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/80-can-any-club-or-organization-advertise-here-for-free.html

Yes, clubs and not-for-profit organizations that serve Park Forest can advertise for free, but no longer on the front page.  Front page stories will now cost $25 quarterly.  Clubs and organizations can request a listing for your organization's upcoming events in the NEWSFLASHES section.  In addition, you may submit a brief description of your club or organization which will appear at the very bottom of each issue.

Stories not listed on the front page are still provided as a courtesy to organizations that cannot afford $25 quarterly, but these will only be available if users click on the Clubs & Organizations menu item.

An official representative of your club or organization is encouraged to request an Author account on eNews Park Forest so that you may enter your own content.

All content submitted is subject to approval of the Publisher. We reserve the right to reject any story for any reason.

What constitutes an arrest? http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/659-what-constitutes-an-arrest.html http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/659-what-constitutes-an-arrest.html

Readers may find names of individuals listed in our police reports showing an "arrest" when the individuals were never formally brought to the police station, finger printed, etc., but issued a Municipal Ticket (M-Ticket), or even a traffic ticket. 

Park Forest Police Chief Tom Fleming provided clarification on this question at a Saturday Rules meeting on May 19, 2007.  According to Chief Fleming, “A traffic ticket is an arrest. If you get stopped and you’re issued a traffic citation, that’s technically a traffic arrest. A citation, like our M-Ticket, is an arrest. You basically are not free to go until you get your paperwork for us to let you go. That’s an arrest. You’re being detained for us to complete that paperwork.”

If charges are dropped in court or before a court hearing, that does not change the circumstances surrounding the issuance of a ticket or citation, an arrest.   "The charge can be dropped when it gets to court for a lot of different reasons," Fleming says, "The disposition of the case does not change what happened at the beginning of it."

Why does eNewsPF sometimes look distorted in Internet Explorer 6? http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/517-why-does-enewspf-sometimes-look-distorted-in-internet-explorer-6.html http://www.enewspf.com/opinion/faqs/517-why-does-enewspf-sometimes-look-distorted-in-internet-explorer-6.html Short answer?  Internet Explorer 6 panics. 

When we are working on our final layout, occasionally we upload a file that is too wide for the layout, particularly in the Clubs & Organizations section at the bottom of the page.  Even headlines that are too long will affect display in IE6.  We always quickly test first in Internet Explorer 6, since if there's going to be a problem with the web page layout, it will show there first.

So, if you are using Internet Explorer 6, you may see a distorted or "exploded" page layout until we fix the problem.  We usually do this very quickly, within a few minutes. 

This was one of the many problems with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6, which is why we strongly urge all Windows users to upgrade to Internet Explorer 7, which is far more secure, stable, and in compliance with web standards.

Even better, we strongly urge Windows users to use Firefox, found here.  Firefox is everything Internet Explorer 7 hopes to be some day, is far more secure, and always in compliance with web standards.

If you are using a Mac, you're probably laughing at all of this "Windows talk."  But for the PC user, Firefox is the clear winner all around, with IE7 coming in next.
