NOTE: Windows users may experience reduction of these images. The Chief reports and the newspaper artcles have been scanned at a resolution high enough for the reader to read on screen.

Some Internet browsers will reduce the size of the image to fit your screen. If you cannot easily read the text in the image that means it has been reduced in size.

Internet Explorer: move your cursor over the bottom right corner of the image, when a small icon appears, click on it and the image will become full size.

Firefox / Netscape: when an image is scaled in Firefox or Netscape your cursor will become a magnifying glass with a plus sign in the middle. Clicking once on the image will bring it up to full size, clicking again will reduce it to fit again.

What does this mean?

Computer monitors can be viewed at different sizes.

The standard today is with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels.

Monitors today have much larger screens than older ones do.

With an old 10 or 12 inch screen you don't have alot a space, when compared to a 15, 17 or larger monitor the difference is amazingly noticeable.

Most older computers and some people who are unaware of the ability to change settings still use a setting of 800 x 600 which gives you less room for program windows and overall desktop space.

Below are steps to change your monitor to give you more space and viewing capabilities.

If you are used to large text and have your monitor set at 800 x 600, the change to 1024 x 768 will be different at first. You may think that everything looks smaller, which it does but when you're used to it you will have alot more space for icons on your desktop and overall useable space in whatever you do on your computer.

Windows Users:
1) Go to the Start Menu
2) Click on Control Panel
3) Double Click on Display
4) On the top of the window, choose the Settings tab
5) In the lower left there is a slider bar, completely to the left will be 800 x 600, sliding to the right you will see it change to 1024 x 768. Once you see that click on Apply. Your monitor will flash and then change to the new setting.

IMPORTANT: Do not go past the 1024 x 768, for some reason Microsoft gives to many choices which can easily unproportionally distort your screen display. My advice is to not change things any further unless you know what you are doing.
