If you know me, then you know I love two things: sports and "Game of Thrones."

ROCKINGHAM — As the Richmond Community Theatre wraps up its 42nd season with "The Cemetery Club," director Merrie Dawkins announced Friday on the theatre's Facebook page that the final show on Saturday will be free for the public to attend.

The New York Knicks got hit with a valuable lesson during Tuesday's NBA Draft lottery as the New Orleans Pelicans' logo was unveiled for the No. 1 pick: There are no shortcuts in the NBA.

ROCKINGHAM — The next play focuses on the dead, but the Richmond Community Theatre is very much alive as "The Cemetery Club" is slated to open tonight in downtown Rockingham at 8 p.m.

Maybe you didn't jump for joy when Mike Fiers of the Oakland Athletics pitched the 300th no-hitter in Major League Baseball history the other night. Nobody cheers when a pundit publishes his 300th column; or when a politician makes his 300th gaffe. (OK, maybe that last one some do.)

ROCKINGHAM — Live music, children's activities, exhibitors, artists and merchants will all move outdoors to the sidewalks of downtown Rockingham Thursday evening for the latest edition of Affair On The Square. 

Move aside, Golden State Warriors.

You have been leapfrogged by the Rockets. They are now basketball's most hated team.

Kemba Walker should leave the lackadaisical Charlotte Hornets for greener pastures this summer.

The Final Four begins Saturday, but before we got to that point, a lot of really talented players destined to go pro had already been knocked out of the tournament. We're left now with Virginia, Michigan State, Texas Tech and Auburn — and unless you're a fan of those particular teams, you may be asking yourself, "Who's the best player left in March Madness?"

HAMLET— Allison Story has been the director of the Richmond County Animal Advocates since 2012, and in that time has seen her group help low- and fixed-income families get their pets spayed and neutered when money has been an issue.
