The wrestling season is a few weeks old.
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.

TUCSON — Chaparral did two things early in Friday's Division II state final that no other opponent had been able to do against Salpointe Catholic this season: score a first-quarter touchdown and take the lead.
The play call was “Earth and Wind.” The result carried No. 3-seeded Chaparral back to the Division II state championship game for the fourth time in five years.
Wesley Payne’s right ankle was taped, his gait was altered and the pain was persistent, but his mentality mirrored that of Mountain Pointe’s season.

Unfortunately for Mesquite, Campo Verde didn’t stay down this time, and came close to pulling off the comeback and the upset before ultimately ceding to the home team, 26-20.
These matchups are inevitable. Whether sooner or later, a second helping is almost always required for a football team to play on.
After lean years, Combs, Mesquite and Skyline are back in postseason, but see it as only a step in each program's respective climb upward
It was my first real glimpse of Arizona that wasn’t through an airliner window. And even though over the years much of it has become obscured, I hope somehow it is preserved and removed to a place where it can continue to welcome wide-eyed and wondering children to their new home.
Gilbert event to mark silver anniversary of Mesa organization’s efforts
Admittedly, it is a little early to start talking about Christmas; Halloween is barely a week away, and Thanksgiving still awaits in the middle of the holiday sandwich. And there’s some reflection of that fact in Aaron Leach’s front yard in Mesa on Oct. 21, with several strands of light and inflatable ornaments unpacked but strewn all over the brown ground.
In today’s age, it doesn’t take long for once-proud football programs to fall quickly from relevance.
The minute I heard the Phoenix Suns had made yet another clear-the-cupboard, shake-the-Etch-a-Sketch, let’s-try-this-again trade on Friday, I thought about my nephew Jake.
The government reopened its doors Thursday after a battle-weary Congress approved a bipartisan measure to end a 16-day partial shutdown and avert the possibility of an economy-jarring default on U.S. obligations.
Novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald once famously declared “there are no second acts in American lives.” But the writer didn't live long enough to see The Rascals prove him wrong.
Football is — among so many things — a game of attrition, which explains why many schools struggle either suddenly or gradually. That’s happening everywhere around East Valley football programs these days, seemingly with more frequency than ever (at least it feels that way).
The Grand Canyon National Park is set to reopen Saturday.
If you saw Paul Greengrass's "United 93," a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience.
