Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)— Editor’s Note: We continue our reporting on news from police reports. Besides covering the many stories from around Park Forest that otherwise might go unnoticed, we want to bring more complete coverage of police reports than is reported by other local media.

An arrest does not mean that a person is guilty. All those arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty. It is the policy of eNews Park Forest to not remove items in the public record from publication. If your name is listed in the police reports, we will only add information relevant to the final disposition of the case at hand, e.g. "Mr. Smith was subsequently acquitted," or "All charges against Mr. Smith were subsequently dropped." We will do so upon receiving and verifying proof of such disposition.

We will always include some introductory comments before the first item. While everything that follows is a matter of public record, we do not believe it is necessary to have names on page one.

Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)— The Park Forest Lions Club is collecting used eye glasses to be recycled for use in third world countries on missions, and hearing aids for recycle to help our own community members in need of hearing aids. We work very closely with LensCrafters in Matteson and an Audiologist in Olympia Fields for those in need in our community .

On June 20, 2007, Mr. Donald Clark and his wife, Paula joined the Park Forest Lions Club as their guest for dinner where Donald was presented with three assistive devices from the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired at no cost to him. The devices included telescope glasses, a magnifier and another pair of glasses with a filter to help him see better than just shadows. The Park Forest Lions Club picked up the entire cost.

The Park Forest Lions Club is here for YOU! If you are in need of glasses or hearing aids, contact Lion Jim Hopper (708-715-6412), President or Lion Allen Warshaw (219-322-9082) for instructions to get an application from the nurse at the Park Forest Health Department.

If you are interested in becoming part of our Park Forest Lions, please contact the above phone numbers and let us know if you would like to come to a dinner meeting as our guest and meet the members. We meet on the third Wednesday of the month.
