The Bears try to stop their losing streak against the Vikings. Can you guess the score? Closest prediction to the outcome wins a Patch T-shirt.
Well that was ugly. The Bears' Monday Night Football shellacking at the hands of the 49ers could make Chicago fans worry about the rest of the season. Predicting what could happen is useless, because from week to week, anything can happen. Having said that, Patch is getting in on the action. Predict the score prior to Sunday's Bears game against the Minnesota Vikings. The reader who correctly guesses the score, or comes closest to guessing the score, will get a T-shirt. At the end of the season, we'll have a random drawing among the weekly winners for a larger prize. Congratulations to Avg. Guy, who predicted the 49ers would beat the Bears 31-9 last week (the actual score was 32-7). • If you’re a Patch reader, simply comment on the bottom …

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s "Light the Night" Walk will take place on October 20 in Elmhurst.
Mike Livorsi was diagnosed with a rare form Leukemia in February 2010. It is called Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia and affects 1500-2000 Americans a year. A few months after Livorsi, a Montgomery resident, was diagnosed another local woman was found to have it as well. “Barely 25 years ago, this type of leukemia had a 100 percent mortality rate,” said Livorsi. “Doctors did not know how to treat it. Today, the success rate is 80-90 percent, and that is because of research to help cancer patients.” Livorsi himself is a survivor of Leukemia, and credits it to the research and advancement in medicine. That’s why he’ll be participating once more in the annual Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s "Light the Night" Walk. The walk is on October 20 at …

Bears loss a huge disappointment for most— except the winner of our $100 Target gift card.
The Packers (not the Bears) are Super Bowl bound. So, some Patch readers have reason to celebrate. The vast majority of the people who entered our contest seeking predictions for Sunday's game picked the Bears to win, but we did have a few Packer backers. Packers predictors Kelly Schulz and Chris Reber came the closest of the 69 people who entered to correctly guessing the final game score. Schulz guessed the Packers would win 24-14, while Reber predicted a 21-17 Packers win. Calculating the winner got a bit complicated. If you remember from the contest rules, we were going to take the difference between the predicted and actual points for both teams, and whoever got the closest to zero won. For example, the final score was 21-14, so with …

Oswego woman grew up a Packers fan and has no plans to change her loyalties.
Oswego resident Suzi Loeffelholz moved to town eight years ago. Her and her husband, who grew up in Des Moines, have been a Packers fan their whole lives and are raising their two children the same way. She's not shy about her love for her team either. She'll wear Packers gear in public and has suffered countless comments from total strangers. "We've been in Home Depot and people will walk up to us say 'Hey, why don't you move to Wisconsin if you love the Packers so much,'" Loeffelholz said. Oswego Patch caught up with Loeffelholz Thursday as she was preparing for Sunday's NFC Championship game to find out what it's like to be a Packers fan in Bears country. For as long as I can remember. In Iowa there's no pro team so people are fans of …
