SAINT-EMILION, France — An FBI agent recently showed Arnaud de Laforcade a file with several labels supposedly from 1947 bottles of Chateau Cheval Blanc, one of France's finest wines. To the Saint-Emilion vineyard's CFO, they were clearly fakes — too new looking, not on the right kind of paper.

PHOENIX — Close to one out of every 12 complaints of child abuse since January were not investigated because Child Protective Services workers simply decided, based on the information from a phone call, that they were not important enough to follow through.
Perhaps this is going to outdate thyself. It’s easy to live in the past and remember the olden days.
Desert Ridge will go as far in the Division I playoffs as tailback Taren Morrison will carry them.
It appeared recent history would repeat itself when Mesquite ran off to a 17-0 lead against Campo Verde after the end of the first 24 minutes in the quarterfinal matchup of Friday night. 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.
A smile — one of those tiny side smirks that causes a cheek to abut against the bottom of the eye — creeps onto your face when remembering all of the gadgets and gizmos held within the toy closet at Cardon Children’s Medical Center. This would be the moment when you’d try to blame the delightful giddiness on the inner child emerging from its shell, but it’d be a lie to say the outer man didn’t have a blast absorbing the sight of all the trinkets within the treasure trove.
These matchups are inevitable. Whether sooner or later, a second helping is almost always required for a football team to play on.
Dear American citizens:
Isaiah Oliver made a goal line stop on fourth down and Leonard Gutierrez intercepted a pass with 18 seconds left to help No. 12 Brophy secure a 28-14 upset victory on the road over No. 5 Avondale Westview (10-1) in the first round of the Division I playoffs Friday night.
If Mesa was supposed to be intimidated by the bigger, talented No. 2 seed, the Jackrabbits didn’t show it.
Queen Creek upset host Paradise Valley to move on to the quarterfinals of the Division II state tournament. The Bulldogs will travel to Tucson to play at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
Well, that was interesting.
In today’s age, it doesn’t take long for once-proud football programs to fall quickly from relevance.
It was homecoming at Campo Verde Friday night and there was a bit of an upset. It was not on the field – it was at halftime, as quarterback Luke Pineda lost out on homecoming king to senior kicker Alex Wells.
No. 10 Basha at No. 2 Chandler: Two weeks ago, Chandler won 49-7 and everyone beyond Arizona Ave. shook their heads. Is Chandler that good? Is Basha that bad? The Wolves might be that good, they have been most of the season. But Basha is much better than that, and the second time around will show that. The obviously keys for Basha to pull off this upset are defense and Rajhan Meriwether. Neither of which got going in the first meeting, but Meriwether has been a workhorse since the Week 9 meeting (54 carries, 334 yards in past two games). Doing it against Chandler will be tougher than Gilbert or Horizon, but the Bears are really dangerous when they can run with even one degree of effectiveness to open up the potent passing game. Chandler’s offense may prove too difficult to stop for four quarters, and the Bears have been prone to turnovers and, at times, penalties at the wrong time, but it’ll be more like a real Chandler-rivalry matchup than the fluke of Week 9.
Prediction: Chandler 41, Basha 31
There is a saying that, no matter how it is accomplished, a win is a win.
Playing shorthanded, Mountain View needed most of the first half to get its offense in gear and find the up-tempo rhythm it has used to get in position for postseason play.
Desert Vista senior wide receiver Richard Haywood made a costly mistake early, but made up for it later to spark the Thunder’s 21-10 win over Dobson on Friday.
Basha nearly knocked off Hamilton last week but ended up falling, 32-31. The Bears have been competitive against everyone on their schedule but are 4-3 with losses to Centennial, Westview and Hamilton. Quarterback Zach Werlinger has been very impressive this season but faces a tough Highland defense, led by ballhawk Chip White in the secondary. If the Hawks can force some turnovers, they have a shot to pull off the upset. Highland is 5-2, but its two games after this are Chandler and Hamilton, so a win here would be a big help for its playoff chances. The Hawks should hang tough, but Basha's offensive firepower may win out in the end.
Prediction: Basha 27, Highland 20

Evidently the Hamilton football program is not a fan of sequels.
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
Seven months after agreeing to move to a different location, the owners of a mental health facility are facing protests from a collection of local residents upset with the new location.
