Find out what has changed on the homepage.
No, you're not losing it! Patch looks different today. We did a quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score: * We tweaked some words in our navigation bar to save space (e.g., "Traffic & Gas" is now "Commute") * We moved the weather icon next to the Patch branding so you can find it more quickly! * We moved, well, YOU closer to the top! (Our "shout stream" is now front and center to show all your comments off.) * And of course we prettified a few things. While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same robust coverage of everything happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We …

Trojans score just 11 points in first half of 48-38 loss to Hononegah
Cary-Grove's boys' basketball team came into the final day of the Hoops for Healing Tournament on Saturday, feeling confident after winning two straight games. That confidence would soon fade in the stiffening pressure defense from Hononegah as the Trojans fell 48-38 at Woodstock High School. Cary (2-2) managed just 11 points in the first half, seven of which coming from Jon Guay and fell behind 23-11 at the break. Guay then began to turn it on from beyond the three-point line, hitting five three-pointers in the second half as Cary began to mount a comeback. With Cary trailing 35-21 in the waning seconds of the third quarter, Nick Richter made his only basket of the game, a leaning three-pointer to pull the Trojans back within 11. Guay …
