Khalia Lanier has what it takes to be a great volleyball player.
Maybe it was the bagpipes, or all of the technical practice leading up to the state meet.
A Belgian drama with bluegrass music may seem like an unlikely combo, but director Felix van Groeningen pulls it off spectacularly in his heart-wrenching new film “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which is already garnering whispers of Academy Award recognition. While other foreign-language Oscar hopefuls such as “Wadjda” and “The Hunt” have come and gone from theaters (with others such as “Gloria” and “The Past” not making their way to Phoenix until early 2014), “Broken Circle” is arriving this month, opening at Harkins Camelview 5 in Scottsdale this Friday, Dec. 6.
The chill of winter means basketball is already underway with a plethora of early-season games and tournaments, and yet the question remains:
Instead of the bygone damsels in distress — yes we're talking about you Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty — the female royals of "Frozen," Disney's latest animated wonder, are feisty, forward and independent.
Chaparral’s Ryan Hoffer created plenty of hype in the preliminaries of the state Division I swim meet by breaking the high-profile 50 freestyle state record on Friday.
A neighborhood rivalry which could have been one of the better showcases in Higley-vs.-Williams Field’s brief history might lose some of its luster.
It was a classic high school football game Friday night between two teams looking to make it into the Division l playoffs. When the dust cleared Desert Mountain won a 50-49 thriller over Skyline in a game loaded with playoff implications.
The ingredients for a long-term, competitive rivalry in the Southeast Valley between Queen Creek and Williams Field are all on the table.
Skyline stayed unbeaten Friday night celebrating homecoming with a 57-0 rout of winless Phoenix Maryvale.
Teams to watch
Skyline football coach Angelo Paffumi is happy with the start to the season, but knows things will get harder.
You’re 15 minutes late to the scheduled interview, stalled by a traffic slog, a lack of direction and a persistent absence of time. Fortunately, the man you’re supposed to meet with, owner Don Salter of Mesa’s The Saltmine Studio Oasis, doesn’t notice the absence and forgets about your interview — you later discover all tall, lean men apparently look alike. So you wait for an extra half hour as he completes the vocal discussion in his office and sets up Studio A for an older couple who appear as if they stepped right off the farm with a young man clad in black.
Skyline is off to a good start with wins over St. Mary's and Yuma Cibola, but Corona del Sol is better than those two teams. Still, it's been miserable in Corona country, having been dissected by Sierra Vista Buena and Horizon, the Aztecs are more than licking their wounds. Colin Freeland (119 yards, 4 TD) and RJ Rhiner (425 yards passing, 5 TD, 2 INT) have led the offense thus far for the Aztecs, and Tevin Mayfield and Grant Fishburn have been big-play guys at receiver. Mayfield, in particular, will be a big task for Skyline's defense. Logan Ruppert has run well for Skyline (385 yards, 5 TD) as has Gabe Lopez (175 yards, 2 TD) and Cory Anderson had a big night last week for the Coyotes catching the ball. Despite Corona's problems (and there are many) are the Coyotes ready for the next mini-bump in competition? Yes.
Prediction: Skyline 24, Corona del Sol 20
Kyree King, McClintock: 225 yards
Massiah Smith, Tempe: 175 yards, 2 TD
J.T. Nettleton, Saguaro (left, pictured): 173 yards, 2 TD
Jordan Brown, Paradise Valley: 146 yards, 3 TD
Zach Compestine, Paradise Valley: 139 yards, TD
Jake Lagunas, Marcos de Niza: 126 rec. yards, TD
Ben McKeighan, Scottsdale Prep: 126 yards, 3 TD
Cory Anderson, Skyline: 111 yards, 2 TD
Brandon Krcilek, Hamilton: 110 yards
Jordan Fickas, Campo Verde: 100 yards, 2 TD
Mark Andrews, Desert Mountain: 79 yards, TD
Two East Valley municipalities each landed a spot on a list of 20 cities that continue to grow even in a slow economy.
Sometimes a shift is so gradual, its effect isn’t realized until an event forces retrospection.
After removing one major project from the list of options, the Mesa City Council approved a motion to call for a more than $130 million bond election in November.
It isn’t exactly the landmark case of E. Fudd vs. B. Bunny.
