Maggie Daley passed away on Thanksgiving Day. She had been the woman behind former Mayor Richard M. Daley during his 22 years in office. As sitting Mayor Emanuel said, "While Mayor Daley served as head of the city, Maggie was its heart. " The soft, caring core to a powerful machine. We could learn a lot from Maggie Daley. The position of first lady is not something that we the people vote for, but she's just as important as the official second-in-command. She's the woman who's there when times are rough and stresses are high.

Chicago can't get enough of Ryne Sandberg. That's what we learned from RedEye's Wrigley Legendary Moments bracket. In honor of the Friendly Confines' 100 t h anniversary, we chose 16 moments from the stadium's illustrious history and left the choice to readers. After three weeks, four rounds and more than 1,100 total votes, Ryne Sandberg's monster game in 1984 - 5-for-6, two home runs in a 12-11 win over archrival St. Louis - bested all challengers. The Sandberg Game, as it has come to be known, defeated Sammy Sosa's 60 t h homer in the first round, Sam Jones' no-hitter in the...

Much like Bulls fans' dreams of an NBA title, Ximena Beltran's dreams of taking the team's star forward to this year's Campfire Ball were simply not meant to come true. The 25-year-old volunteer camp counselor posted video on YouTube asking Deng to be her date to Children's Oncology Services Inc.'s annual fundraiser, mounting a social media campaign to try to catch his eye. It worked. "On Wednesday he sent me a direct message [on Twitter] saying he saw the video and thought it was amazing but he had prior commitments and won't be in town, otherwise he would have gone," she said, her voice...

It's Martin Luther King Jr. season again. With the arrival of Monday's holiday honoring the civil rights icon, schoolteachers will dust off their MLK posters and fill their bulletin boards with "I Have a Dream" speech quotes. News stations will remind us of MLK's involvement in the civil rights movement, and they will do so with footage from the March on Washington in 1963. There will no doubt be a program staged in the nation's capitol in the shadow of the MLK memorial where everyone from politicians to some unknown preacher named Martin - in honor of the icon, naturally - will speak about Dr. King...

As kids, many of us sat around with our friends and talked about what we wanted to be when we grew up, and we all had such huge dreams. Yet somewhere along the way, many of us traded in our dreams for something we consider to be more practical. Why? Almost everyone I know hates his or her job. It seems they all have aspirations to do something creative but are too afraid to go for it. I don't get it. At what point do we go from believing we can do anything we dream of to settling for a job that pays the bills?

If the air feels a little different today, it's because we've been hit with some purple rain. Prince is in the Windy City, and last week he released remaining tickets to three of his shows, allowing fans to attend tonight, tomorrow or Wednesday night. The show, which takes place at Chicago's United Center, is a partnership between The Artist and Rebuild the Dream, a group that builds communities and works to improve the economy from the ground up. The show is slated to be informative as well as entertaining: Prince and...

When the U.S. men's basketball team reached halftime of its showdown with Argentina on Monday, the Americans held only a six-point advantage in their previous six quarters. Of course, in the six quarters prior to that stretch, the Americans' advantage was 117 points. In fact, until they blew the Argentina game open with a 42-point third quarter, the U.S. seemed destined for their closest pair of consecutive wins since the final two games of the 2000 Olympics. These are the ups and downs of international basketball in 2012.

When Adam Rothenberg signed on to star in BBC America's hit crime drama "Ripper Street," he wasn't expecting to feel quite so special on set in Ireland. "I was for once exotic, yeah," he said, laughing. "I never really thought of myself as having an accent and being different. " Set in London's rough East End in 1890, "Ripper Street" tells the story of H Division, the police precinct charged with keeping order in the aftermath of Jack the Ripper's reign of terror. Rothenberg plays American Homer Jackson, an ex-Army surgeon and ex-Pinkerton...

2012 already feels different than past years. With the alleged Mayan apocalypse predictions looming closer, with the future of the country soon to be in the hands of an uncertain figure, with activism and the Occupy movement shaking things up, change is certainly present on people's minds and faces. But here comes old man winter, in extraordinary fashion, bringing days of snow just after days of spring-like weather. Even the weather seems uncertain. The seemingly obvious certainties, like winter, four more years of Obama, and the decline...

When Olivia Cole, 25, was deciding where she should live with her boyfriend, she considered breaking up with Chicago. She was tired of the slow Red Line commute from her place in Edgewater to her job downtown, which affected how much she wanted to go out at night. She thought about moving to another city but didn't want to change jobs. She wanted to be near her friends who live on the South Side without being too far from the Loop. Eventually, Cole settled on the South Loop, a place she came to know and love from her time as a student at Columbia College.

Justin Timberlake is known for his versatility as an artist--for Sunday's American Music Awards he has snagged nominations in the Pop, R&B and Soul categories--but there's still one genre of music he's yet to cover: country. Apparently the Grammy-winning performer wants to change that. According to Billboard, Timberlake told Nashville-based SiriusXM station The Highway that his dreams of being a country star are "still alive," and that he still has his eye on a Best Country Album award.

Dennis Joseph isn't the guy he appears to be. The West Rogers Park native works a 9-to-5 job for a marketing company. Five o'clock stubble crowds his smile. His shirt is starched, pressed and clean. He's your average Joe. But you wouldn't know it this sticky afternoon. His other side surfaces. Joseph is an aspiring director. The 29-year-old is putting the final touches on his first piece, a web series-turned-TV pilot titled “Oh, Henry.” He hopes to have the all-volunteer, shoe-string-budget production completed by the first...

*** (out of four) The-Dream's appropriately titled fourth album, “IV Play,” opens with a song called “High Art,” a title that's almost aggressively ill-fitting. The song purposefully pokes fun at stuffy ideas of art with its chorus about drugs and sex, but it's also one of the more generic entries in The-Dream's catalog, featuring a Jay-Z verse that imitates Big Sean's flow and sounds like the kind of stilted R&B song rappers release as their album's third single. Coming from The-Dream, an artist who frequently manages to turn pop music...

**1/2 (out of four) Normally, Dwayne Johnson looks like a mountain. Working with Michael Bay, who shoots anything he admires (male badass/female hottie/four-wheel almost anything) as if he's gazing upwards in worship at buildings, the actor becomes a mountain on top of a building. In scientific terms, this is known as “freaking huge.” Shockingly based on a true story from mid-'90s Miami, “Pain and Gain” counts as a small movie for Bay (“Transformers”), who usually can blow $25 million (this movie's...

Christmas, Part I is in the books, can't wait for Part II in a month. Part I was the Bears signing free agents - my gosh, I got what I asked for! Twice! I got me a nice, big, sturdy tight end! Martellus Bennett. He can run, catch and block! He's one of those basketball/football combo players. Good, because I really think he should play for the Bulls. With no Derrick Rose, they need all the help they can get. We also have a nice, All Pro left tackle. Jermon Bushrod. It's not an episode of "The Twilight Zone," this is actually happening!

Beyonce co-directed and co-produced "Life is but a Dream" ( 8 p.m. Feb. 16, HBO; 2 stars out of 4 ), supposedly an intimate look at her life and work. But the HBO special comes off more as another managed attempt to forge the legend of Queen B.   Sure, old home videos show that Beyonce always has been a star, but instead of sharing some honest feelings with us, she sticks to hokey platitudes like, "My feelings get hurt like anyone else. "   We do see how she's able to work it on stage; her work ethic is killer.
