They paid $1.1 million for the house in 2005 and listed it for more than $1.2 million last month before trimming $20,000 from the asking price. [Chicago Tribune]

U.S. Bank closing Chicago branches

U.S. Bank is the 10th-largest bank by deposits in the six-county Chicago area, and it joins Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, and Fifth Third Bank in shedding locations here in the past year.
