Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

CARSON CITY (AP) - A federal appeals court on Wednesday overturned the bad-checks conviction of a woman imprisoned in Nevada for 12 years, saying she did time "for conduct that is not a crime."
The 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Joni Goldyn, 59, a problem gambler convicted of five counts of writing bad checks in Las Vegas. Because she had four prior fraud-related convictions, she was sentenced to multiple life terms as a habitual criminal.
