This image released by 20th Century Fox shows Gemma Arterton, left, and Justin Timberlake in a scene from "Runner Runner."

The Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School cross country teams brought a contingency of athletes to the Desert Twilight Cross Country Invitational last weekend and left with something worth celebrating.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.

Believe me, I’m psyched that you have picked up running in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and even 60s because I think it’s an awesome sport with so many social, physical and emotional benefits. But I have to tell you people, there’s a segment of you out there who need to be more pragmatic in your approach to running.
The article “DV runners look to get over the runner-up hum” in the Sept. 5 AFN inadvertently left out one of the top Desert Vista girls cross country runners because of a coach’s accidental omission. Junior Nicole Hicks should have been listed among the Thunder’s top candidates for the season.
