Some people call them arrowheads, some call them projectile points.
I enjoy summer as much as anyone. By about mid-July, though, I am very ready for the new school year to begin. There are probably a fair number of parents who feel the same way, but maybe for somewhat different reasons. The feeling of renewal that a new school year brings is always exciting.
• TV personality Alex Trebek is well known for asking "answers" on "Jeopardy!" but not as much so for chasing down intruders, which he did last week after someone invaded his hotel room. Alas, Trebek suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon while chasing down the violator, and he has undergone surgery.

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure.
