But Prior had an incident at the Just Ducky Too gift store in Naperville and didn't win 18 games throughout the rest of his career. In the world of Cubs curses, the duck earns a spot.

  • Des Plaines man takes care of all his neighbors' snow Feb 18, 2014 6:16 AM
    Every neighborhood seems to have one: that kind soul who mans a snowblower to help out the elderly, sick, widowed and even healthy, fit people with snow shovels.

He used to clear another widow's drive, until she died. “I just went and did hers because she lived alone.”

  • Ringo love set in sidewalk stone and contest winner's memory Feb 11, 2014 5:23 AM
    The Beatles, like winter, seem to be hanging around far longer than anyone might have anticipated. Still, I am skeptical when readers assure me that Ringo's daily presence in the suburbs has been set in stone for almost half a century. Often regarded as the least-handsome, least-talented, and least-crush-worthy Beatle, Ringo always had his fans in the suburbs. And still does.

  • Suburbanites recall Beatlemania’s arrival 50 years ago Feb 2, 2014 6:56 PM
    It might have happened 50 years ago, but the memories of The Beatles coming to America still bring out the teenage girl in many suburbanites. “Even today, when I hear a Beatles song, I can get that same feeling as when I was 13 or 15,” says Mary Dickson, 62, of Sleepy Hollow. “It was exciting.
