Packers (-3) over BEARS Had a pretty strong anti-Chicago feeling last week, and it was right on the money, as the Bears came up on the short end of a 21-14 score against the Vikings. And that was with Minny QB Christian Ponder calling the shots. Now, the banged-up Bears get one of the best in Aaron Rodgers, and this could get ugly real fast. Green Bay has won seven of its last eight overall (6-2 against the spread), while Chicago has dropped four of the last five. Now, WR Brandon Marshall, who leads the NFL with 101 receptions, has opened his yap, saying how much he hates the Packers.

DEAR ABBY : The other day at my in-laws', my mother-in-law, father-in-law, "Bert," and I were in their computer room. Bert has pictures of his family posted on his bulletin board. One of the photos he posted recently I found disturbing. It was of a young, well-endowed woman in her early 20s wearing a tight tube top. What disturbed me was that Bert has printed my 16-year-old daughter's name underneath and the date "2017. " When I asked him about it, he said that was what she will look like at 21. I think it's unnerving for a grandfather to be picturing his only granddaughter in such a manner.

In a cluttered fifth-floor studio in North Philadelphia, two huge pieces of plywood hang from the ceiling, pulsing in time with the music from a pair of high-end stereo speakers. thoompa-thoomp-thoomp . . . But whoa - upon closer inspection, the big pieces of plywood actually are the speakers. They have wires attached to the back, and, somehow, they sound really good. Typical for Hive76. It is a hacker space, a kind of inventors' clubhouse where castoff 21st-century junk and random parts are fused together in a collaborative cauldron of ideas.

WALTHAM, Mass. - Kevin Garnett won't be posting any comments from the 76ers owners on his mental bulletin board. The Philadelphia fans won't be getting all riled up over comments deriding their loyalty. "It's Game 7. There's no tomorrow," Celtics captain Paul Pierce said before practice on Friday. "If this is not the most important thing to you right now, there is no way to motivate you as a basketball player. " The Celtics and Sixers will play Saturday night for a spot in the Eastern Conference finals, where one of them will face the Miami Heat for the right to play for the NBA title.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Reality set in Thursday morning when Domonic Brown walked to the middle of the Phillies clubhouse and inspected the lineup card tacked to the bulletin board. Brown had been cleared to resume playing after a neck injury, but his name did not appear anywhere on the board. "Life goes on," Brown said Friday. Now his bags were packed for minor-league camp, a move guaranteed well before this day. Brown came to camp with the stated goal of making the team, but the odds were long.

Price Berkley, 92, founder, editor, and longtime publisher of Theatrical Index, the weekly trade publication that has been consulted by anyone wanting to produce, finance, write about, or possibly avoid a Broadway show, died Sunday at his Manhattan home. Mr. Berkley founded Theatrical Index in 1964 with a typewriter, a stapler, and 16 subscribers. It retains its original, humble form: a slim sheaf secured at the top with staples. "People used to put it on a clipboard on their bulletin board, and they still do," said Steve Bebout, who succeeded Mr. Berkley as editor in chief after his retirement in 2007.

WASHINGTON - Seventy-two people have been charged with participating in an international child-pornography network that prosecutors say used an online bulletin board called Dreamboard to trade tens of thousands of images and videos of sexually abused children. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said yesterday that a 20-month effort called Operation Delego targeted more than 600 Dreamboard members around the world for participating in the private, members-only Internet club created to promote pedophilia.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - At 8:22 a.m., Pete Mackanin removed the Phillies lineup from a bulletin board in the clubhouse. The bench coach took his Wite-Out pen and blotted out CASTILLO 4, which had been written second in the batting order. In a corner of the room, a new locker space cleared between Placido Polanco and Raul Ibanez contained two pairs of white-and-gray pants and two jerseys. They were untouched. Luis Castillo had a jersey number (3), but there was no sign Tuesday morning of the recently acquired second baseman, given a new but tenuous lease on his baseball life after becoming a symbol of everything gone wrong for the New York Mets.
