Fourteen-week old Felix is available for adoption at the Hinsdale Humane Society.
Name: Felix Age: 14 weeks Sex: Male Breed: Chihuahua/terrier Weight: 7 lbs. Good with kids?: Yes, 13 years and older More info: Felix has a ton of energy and would be a good fit for a family where someone is home for most of the day. Although he’s a young pup, Felix is responding well to training and can “walk politely outdoors on a leash.” He’s dog friendly but not so fond of cats. Because he’s so lively, he’d be best served by a family that has experience owning dogs. Interested? Contact the Hinsdale Humane Society at 630-323-5630 or at 22 N. Elm St. in Hinsdale.

It’s available from a Willowbrook seller. … So, someone and their girlfriend in Darien saw that YouTube video of the talking dog, and decided that yes, they too would like a talking dog. Seriously.

The Red Devils' Casey May opened the game with two quick goals to lead Central past rival LT 3-1 in the sectional title game Friday night.
Casey May scored a goal 38 seconds into Hinsdale Central's match against Lyons Township in the sectional championship Friday night and added another early on to lead the Red Devils to a 3-1 win against its rival.

By an 85-30 vote, the Illinois House moved on Friday to approve a law allowing certified residents to carry concealed firearms, which would end Illinois' status as the only state in the nation to completely prohibit carrying guns in public. According to Reuters, the "shall-issue" law, supported by Democratic Speaker Michael Madigan, mandates that concealed-carry permits be issued to Firearm Owners Identification Card-holders who have completed 16 hours of training; it maintains the ban on firearms in many places, including government buildings, schools, stadiums and bars. "Criminals are cowards," Rep. Mike Bost, a southern Illinois Republican, told the Associated Press before the vote. "If they know there's an opportunity they're going to …
