So, we're still hungover after the Cubs win Friday night? But snap out of it. If you don't have cable, you're not going to watch the Cubbies on the tube in the Senior Circuit's division and championship series.

That cover story in Friday's News-Sun got this dog thinking about winter and how the dog house needs some new insulation. The fur is a little thin and The Hound could use one of those warm and cuddly fur coats they sell at the fur store in Lake Forest.
The Hound has been stung a number of times, even by bees, and he's feeling the same way about this new Jerry Seinfeld project, BEE Movie. The Zee-Bees weren't even asked to be extras.
Craig and Scott Stebic are brothers. At one time they lived in Lake County, but now they live in far south suburban Plainfield. They sound like two wild and crazy guys.
You have to hand it to cops. They always come up with interesting names for undercover operations. Take North Chicago's recent "Operation Star-Dust".
After the carnage of the Bears' loss on Sunday Night Football to the Dallas Caballeros, The Hound should have known better than to watch fillm maker Ken Burns' latest opus, "The War." After watching it for a few minutes, The Hound had to ask: What's so new here we haven't seen before?
To read The News-Sun's "Talk of the County" you'd think Wadsworth was some podunk town better suited to "Green Acres" or "Pettycoat Junction." The Hound will set the record straight.
The Gurnee Chamber of Commerce has started a new program, "iShopGurnee.com". Why?
The Hound has hung around the ballpark long enough not to get his tail in a tizzy over the Chicago Cubs. But as the magic number gets closer, maybe next year is here.
So the Navy is going to rebuild a street in North Chicago? Why stop there? The Hound says: Let the Navy run the entire city.
The Hound figured Six Flags Great America in Gurnee would come up with some sort of eating torture for this year's Fright Fest, considering the success of last year's offering of munching on giant Madagascar hissing cockroaches. But what they've come up with surely isn't a blue-plate special.
It's harvest time in Lake County and The Hound doesn't mean pumpkins. It's marijuana that area law enforcement types are bundling up and making sure isn't reaching the marketplace.
The Hound bets the Loch Lomond neighbors of Michael Sonka weren't aware they were living next to a 55-year-old man with an arsenal of some 636 weapons. They do now.
When The Hound was a pup, he certainly liked his toys and when he mistreated them, his mother would remind him that he was a lucky pup because kids in China didn't have nice toys to play with. Of course not, they shipped them all here. With lead on them!
There's some righteous anger out in certain parts of Lake County toward those so-called big box stores. Kind of late to be dancing the boogaloo over the big stores as village officials see retail sales tax dollar signs in their dreams.
The Hound wants to know: What's with all these out-of-towners robbing Lake County banks? We don't have enough homegrown talent that people from New York, Wisconsin and western suburbs have to hold up county financial institutions?
What do you get a forest preserve district that has everything? A $22 million garage, of course.
Pelhaps The Hound is off his feed, but is he the only one who thinks time has come and gone for a county-supported nursing home?
This dog likes a burger just like any other, so the old mouth was watering since he's been hit with a flurry of e-mails complaining about "Hardees/Carl 's Jr. hit new lows with ads." Who knew? We don't have Hardees up north here.
The Big Dog has bounded about the location where the search for adventurer Steve Fossett is centered and he can report it is a desolate landscape. Nothing at all like Las Vegas.
With Lance Briggs busting up his $450,000 Lamborghini sports car on the Edens Expressway late last month, perhaps the Bears linebacker would be interested in the newest offering from the Italian automaker.
Hey coho! Yeah, I'm talking to you fish! You may owe the city millions in harbor cleanup costs.
That Britney Spears sure knows how to shake a tail feather. What were her handlers thinking when they paraded her out there in her olive drab skivvies on the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night?
The Hound was out of the doghouse for just a few minutes over the weekend when he looked up and saw some screaming jets in formation over his owner's yard.
Antioch Trustee Robert Caulfield took a walk on the wild side this week after he tried to hijack the mayor's gavel.
Gurnee has sure taken its sweet time removing sandbags from the fronts of waterlogged businesses.
The Hound just realized that filing for the Feb. 5, 2008 Republican presidential primary begins Thursday --- not that dogs can vote, although they should, don't you think?
While the rest of you were enjoying a leisurely Labor Day, The Hound was holding a celebration, gnawing on several Big Macs and marking the 40th anniverary of the quintessential American burger.
