The Week in Review: Chicago Cubs’ Historic World Series Win

The Cubs’ wretched curse is history. The Chicago Cubs win a roller coaster World Series Game 7, snapping sports longest championship drought in history.

Candidates are in the final campaign push with four days until voters go to the polls. The presidential race is tightening as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump make a mad dash for last-minute votes. Sen. Mark Kirk loses support over a debate misstep questioning Tammy Duckworth’s heritage.

October is the second deadliest month this year in Chicago. The Chicago Teachers Union overwhelmingly approves the Chicago Public Schools costly new contract. The Cubs have some tough contract decisions next year. And the Bulls surprising start to the season.
