The Chicago Bears captured the NFL championship yesterday, rolling up the most lopsided score in the history of the Super Bowl to defeat the New England Patriots, 46-10, in Super Bowl XX in New Orleans. Quarterback Jim McMahon and an intimidating defense led the Bears to victory before a crowd of 73,818 at the Superdome and a national television audience estimated at more than 110 million, and they touched off a celebration among Chicago's long-suffering fans. McMahon, who was in the news more than any other player during the preceding week, rushed for two touchdowns and set up several other Chicago scores with his passing.

There was quite some hulla-Belew raised by The Bears at the Chestnut Cabaret on Tuesday night. This unassuming quartet, led by one of rock's pre- eminent guitarists, Adrian Belew, demonstrated aggressive and accomplished musicianship. Belew, who is best known for his work with Talking Heads and King Crimson, has primarily confined himself to arty realms. His union with these little- known former members of Cincinnati's The Raisins finds him entering full- force into mainstream rock.

CHICAGO - Jay Cutler threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall and Robbie Gould kicked field goals of 39 and 21 yards as the Bears defeated the Detroit Lions, 13-7, on Monday night. The 5-1 Bears solidified their spot atop the NFC North, while the last-place Lions (2-4) lost for the fourth time in five games. Cutler completed 16 passes in 31 attempts for 150 yards. He also sent a scare through the Bears when, midway through the second quarter, he was slammed to the ground on a sack by Ndamukong Suh. Cutler was on the ground for a few minutes and was attended to by a team trainer before jogging off the field.

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts soon happens to man. - Chief Seattle, 1853 In the 1980s, poachers trafficking in bear parts illegally killed about 310 of the 500 black bears that roamed the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Operation Smoky, a joint federal-state undercover operation, put a stop to the slaughter - at least temporarily. The grizzly bear is even more at risk from its interactions with man: Where about 100,000 once roamed the American West, only 1,000 remain south of the Canadian border, threatened not just by illegal hunting but by the encroachments of mining, logging, ranching and recreational activities.

The Hershey Bears got goals from four different players and defeated the Phantoms, 4-1, Saturday. Bob Needham scored his first AHL goal to put the Bears in front, 1-0, at 15:42 of the second period. Just over three minutes later, Christian Matte fired his 16th of the year past Phantoms goalie Brian Boucher. Rob Shearer's power play goal at 10:38 of the final period extended Hershey's lead to 3-0. Exactly two minutes later, Mike Gaul's power play score made it 4-0. The opening period was scoreless, and the Bears had a goal disallowed because of too many men on the ice at 7:37 of the middle period.

The Chicago Bears took another step toward leaving town, suspending negotiations over the city's proposed $156 million renovation of Soldier Field. Talks scheduled yesterday to discuss personal seat licenses at the aging lakefront stadium, an arrangement that would require fans to pay for the right to buy tickets, were canceled. Mayor Richard Daley's plan would not give the team enough revenue and would not provide an "NFL-caliber stadium," Bears vice president of operations Ted Phillips said.

Witness is protest. You need only to video or livestream an event to inject it into mass consciousness, as if to say: This. This exists. And very often that act carries this implicit yet passionate message: And we have to change it. On Wednesday, Diamond Reynolds used Facebook Live to livestream from Falcon Heights, Minn. Her video showed her boyfriend, Philando Castile, dying of wounds after being shot by a police officer. With purpose and self-possession, she addresses her virtual audience: "We got pulled over for a busted taillight in the back and the police just.

A bear that had been roaming through a Bucks County community has been captured and safely relocated, authorities said. The animal was spotted in a wooded area behind the Pennsbury Racquet and Athletic Club in Morrisville shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday. Falls Township police contacted the Pennsylvania Gaming Commission, which sent a marksman to hit the bear with a tranquilizer dart. The bear weighed 161 pounds, said Lt. Hank Ward of the township's police department. Based on several recent sightings in and around Philadelphia, it appears that bears are increasingly present in cities and suburbs.

A week after a small black bear was seen swimming in the Wissahickon Creek in Fairmount Park, is it safe to go into the park? Wildlife Conservation Officer Jerry Czech, of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, says yes. "We didn't tell people to stay out of the woods when it was spotted," Czech said Friday. "It would be perfectly safe to go about your business," he said. "With the amount of people in that park ... it's probably not there. " Czech said he believes the bear spotted May 13 near the Valley Green Inn, by Forbidden Drive and Valley Green Road, was the same bear later seen in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, on Sunday.

Since a black bear was spotted swimming in the Wissahickon Creek in Fairmount Park last Friday, many have been wondering: Where has the bear gone? Wildlife officials say there have been reported bear sightings this week spanning more than 30 miles from Philadelphia to Delaware County and Delaware, but they are not sure if any of those sightings are the same bear spotted near Valley Green Inn last week. Jerry Czech, a wildlife conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, said by email Wednesday that there were no sightings of the Wissahickon bear over the weekend in the city.

After an unexpected guest - a black bear - caused alarm Friday when it was spotted in the Wissahickon Creek in Fairmount Park, park-goers were left wondering: What happened to the animal? The bear swam across the creek and disappeared into the woods after a crowd gathered along the bank. It's not known where it went after that. No black bear sightings were reported in the Wissahickon over the weekend, Erin Mooney, a publicist for the group Friends of the Wissahickon, said Monday.

For Delran catcher Ben Youngberg, there's the action during the baseball game - the pitches he receives, the throws he makes, the times when he gets to bat and run the bases. Then there's everything else. Youngberg is a top hitter and standout defensive catcher. He has led a Delran resurgence that has the Bears back in the race for the Burlco Patriot title and looming as a legitimate threat in the Central Jersey Group 2 tournament. But his greatest contributions might be in those big gaps between the action, when Youngberg is mentoring his pitchers, directing his teammates in the field, and talking it up in the dugout area.

A black bear was spotted Friday morning in the Wissahickon Creek in Fairmount Park by a man fishing near the Valley Green Inn. Maura McCarthy, executive director of the Friends of the Wissahickon, said she got a call about 11 a.m. from the fisherman, a member of the Friends group. "He looked downstream and saw a black bear approaching on the same bank he was on," she said. "The bear was fishing. " The bear then swam across the creek and disappeared into the woods. "We're encouraging people to exercise caution," McCarthy said.

The Eagles are close to hiring Bears scout Joe Douglas to head their personnel department, NFL sources told the Inquirer on Saturday. The announcement is expected Monday. Douglas, who has been the Bears' director of scouting for the last year, interviewed with the Eagles on Thursday. He previously spent 15 years as a Ravens scout. Douglas will report to Howie Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, and head the scouting department. The Eagles suspended their search for Roseman's second in command in January in the hope they would have a larger pool of candidates to choose from after the draft.

JOE DOUGLAS, described by a source close to the situation as the "top candidate" to direct Eagles personnel under Howie Roseman, is scheduled to interview for the job Thursday, and could be officially hired very quickly after that. An NFL observer who knows Douglas well called him "a worker bee" Wednesday - a well-regarded scout who keeps a low public profile, and wouldn't mind reporting to Roseman, the former general manager restored to power by team chairman Jeffrey Lurie at the end of the 2015 season.
