Thanks for your comments, Patsy! We love to hear that. Hopefully, it'll keep things like this from happening to other people.

In answer to your question about the AARP, we heard unofficially that one of the candidates had to reschedule due to a time conflict. We are working on getting confirmation. Thanks.

Hi Tom, According to their latest filings on the State Board of Elections website, Bill Foster lives in Naperville, and Judy Biggert lives in Hinsdale. Candidates for Congress are not required to live within the districts they run, however. I'm including a link to the Illinois State Board of Elections 2012 candidate guide in case you wanted it for reference. Thanks. : http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CCUQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.elections.state.il.us%2FDownloads%2FElectionInformation%2FPDF%2F2012Canguide.pdf&ei=JX9zUNPqGoWX0QHXuIB4&usg=AFQjCNHCpc6vhNFHPFAP1PmPmOqnbuYCLw

This is not a press release. It's coverage of the IEA press conference today and questions that were directed at the association and Rep. Biggert following the announcement. Bill Foster was not present, because the point of the press conference was to announce Biggert's endorsement.

It's interesting that although Joe O'Donnell's name is also on the story, you chose to attack me. This is not an obituary. You'll notice it does not say obituary on top of story. It was not my call to include the court info, nor was it Joe's. More than one editor was involved in this decision. If I had no regard for the victim, I would not have gone out of my way to find people who knew him when I was told repeatedly people did not want to comment. I would not have gone to Lake Terrace repeatedly during my off time to let people know the story remembering him is up on the site and asking them to comment: http://patch.com/A-ygL3. No other media in the area made the effort. You are entitled to your opinion, and I know you are used to a certain level of customer service from when the Patch model was one editor per site. Things have changed. When you were unhappy that we did not have a full story on a Hinsdale South football game, I found someone to write about Hinsdale South football, and I did my best to provide Hinsdale South football coverage with limited resources. I have done everything I can to accommodate you. Although, I do the best I can and try to please everyone, I know that is impossible. I am sorry you are unhappy, but I am not going to spend my Saturday morning going back and forth with you on this. If you are seriously interested in helping make the site better. Call me Monday morning. We can talk then.

Tiffany, we did not say ugly things about Joshua. The information in the initial article is from the DuPage County Clerk. As I mentioned in my editorial, we can only report what we have been told and facts that have been verified. I made an effort to reach out to Joshua's family and friends to find out more about him. You'll notice other media have not done so. As with all police information, we are required to report the information that we are given. It was not a personal attack, and we did not draw any conclusions from the information.

Who was the writer you emailed about how you felt? When I saw a negative comment below the article, I reviewed it and noticed that something was added to the article by another staff member that was not originally in it. Because my name was on the article, I am associated with that decision, however, I never received an email from you. I wrote this follow up not in response to an outcry or email but as part of the normal course of reporting the story. Tell me who you wrote to and what you want us to know. I take things like this very seriously, and I want to know if the person followed up with you.
