FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Top Orioles pitching prospect Matt Riley reported to camp late again yesterday due to a "personal problem" and could face disciplinary action from the club. The 20-year-old left-hander, who opened spring training as a long-shot candidate for the starting rotation, is scheduled to pitch two innings today against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, but his on-field status became clouded after an incident early yesterday morning in which he apparently was thrown out of local nightclub.

Kudos to Erica Green , Scott Calvert , and Luke Broadwater for their excellent article "The classroom as a battleground" (Feb. 16). As the husband of a retired Baltimore City school teacher, I can attest to some of the abuses outlined in the article. The last time my wife was assaulted, she was "head butted" in the back by one of her third grade students. Her principal "urged" her not to file a report, as he thought it best for the student not to be punished. The quote by Jimmy Gittings, president of the principal's union, that "no principal is intimidating any teacher for recommending a student for disciplinary action" is blatantly false.

Why don't we put Bill Clinton up for sainthood ("Misoverestimated Bush," April 28)? After all, his economic record was to be revered. Too bad he couldn't keep his pants on in the White House. If any public or private education senior staff acted in the same way, there would have been an immediate cry for dismissal and disciplinary action. Once again, the media glorifies the thugs who continue to commit various acts of immaturity and politicians who continue to laud their own plaudits.

In an attempt to tighten state regulations governing school discipline, the state school board will gather reaction on a proposal to limit the time a suspended student can be kept out of school during the appeal of a serious disciplinary action. The board said Tuesday it wants to implement a regulation that would require a school system to bring a student back to school the day after the suspension is over. In some school systems, a student can be kept out of school for weeks or months while an appeal is heard, a practice the state board wants to stop.

BOSTON — A day after four players were ejected in a benches-clearing incident that featured Kevin Gregg and David Ortiz throwing punches, the Orioles closer maintained that he had no regrets, while the Red Sox All-Star designated hitter apologized for his actions. Ortiz charged Gregg in the bottom of the eighth inning after the Orioles pitcher yelled at him as he jogged to first base. Ortiz took umbrage to Gregg throwing three straight pitches inside, while Gregg didn't appreciate the fact that Ortiz had walked toward the mound a pitch earlier, and then swung at a 3-0 pitch in a seven-run game.

A contract employee was responsible for failing to properly redact a 93-page Transportation Security Administration operating manual that was put on a government procurement Web site. "The security of the traveling public has never been put at risk," Napolitano said, repeating earlier TSA statements that the document was out of date.
