Saba is a puggle — which is a pug and beagle mix — and she just turned 11 this past July. Her favorite thing to do is cuddle and force people to pet her. She has great intuition and can tell when her owners need something to smile about. Taking her on walks is a challenge because she overcompensates her small size with an attitude, so she barks and lunges at every other dog. Despite the attitude, she’s extremely friendly and loves people, mostly because they’ll pet her.

Providence made history Wednesday, Oct. 1, at Cog Hill in Lemont.

The Celtics fired a school-record 282 Cog Hill No. 3 to win the Catholic League Conference. Their score was 6-under-par and it was needed as runner-up Loyola was just behind them, closing with a 286 as both squads were on their game.

It was the second time this fall that the Celtics have established a new school best as they needed a tremendous effort to hold off Loyola.

When it comes to publisher 22nd Century Media’s annual contests, nothing can stop the powerhouse that is the Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest. It simply is too hard to compete with children coloring hearts for soldiers and veterans. But running a close (and respectable) second is the Vacation Photo Contest — the submission period for which is now open.
