Chronically late or truant students in Dallas are wearing electronic monitors so school officials can make sure they're on the way to class when they're supposed to be. According to the Times, the experimental program has been a big success, at least at Bryan Adams High School.
This just in: Fellow and the rest of his school chess team were crowned as champions at last weekend's National Elementary chess tournament in Pittsburgh. Admittedly, their title came in the Grades K-3 Under-800 division, a relatively low level of competition. And, we confess, the three points Fellow earned in his seven games (two wins, plus one more by forfeit) didn't technically count toward the squad's victory, as only the top four scores on a team count toward their official standings. But don't think for a second that any of that diminishes our pride.
