CHICAGO — LeBron James is taking his game to the silver screen.
The Miami Heat superstar confirmed reports before Thursdays game against the Chicago Bulls that he will co-star with Kevin Hart in the comedy “Ballers.” Hart plays the brother of an NBA star who gets a chance to prove himself at a fantasy basketball camp in Miami.
James says the opportunity to work with Hart was a product of their “friendship” and “mutual respect.” He says the role is “something I could relate to, as far as fantasy basketball and guys wanting to be basketball players” who “never had really had the great opportunity to be a professional athlete.”

For the first time in many years, Yuba-Sutter will have the chance to hear Beethoven’s “Sixth Symphony.”
The piece is among those the Yuba-Sutter Symphony will perform on Saturday for the Fall Classics Concert that kicks off its new season.
“For the last few years, for the fall concert we’ve been trying to perform pieces people are familiar with and are part of the standard orchestral repertoire,” said Corey Kersting, the symphony’s conductor. “Beethoven’s ‘Sixth’ is a pretty famous piece of music that hasn’t been played in our area very often.

A university professor, a doctor and a lawyer walk into a punk rock bar.
That’s not the start of a joke; it’s the start of the night’s entertainment.
They’re members of the band the 99ers. Half them are old enough to join AARP, and they have enough college degrees among them to wallpaper the stage. Add that the fourth member of the group is a stay-at-home dad and the manager is a corporate insurance analyst, and there isn’t a punk band stereotype that they don’t defy.
“We’re not looking for fame,” said Dr. Christopher Schoonover, the drummer. “Most of us don’t have time for that, anyway. I can’t drive to New Jersey in a van for two months. We’re doing this because we love it. It’s a break from what we d

I do not adhere to the majority of rules I learned as a child. I often speak when I am not spoken to. (Rashly and full of emotion.) I sometimes eat my dessert before my dinner. (In case an asteroid hits before I have the chance to enjoy it.) I make faces at people when their backs are turned. (Laughing in Fate’s face should the expression suddenly “stick” and give me away.) But two rules I have never broken?
I do not talk about politics. I do not talk about religion.
I have recently realized, however, that my reluctance to talk about these issues (politics and religion) has spawned an almost inexcusable silence when it comes to other (equally as debatable) issues. Which
