Texas Rangers TV play-by-play announcer Dave Barnett will receive a medical evaluation after giving an incoherent on-air description of a play that included a reference to "fifth" base. The team said in a statement Tuesday that Barnett will miss at least the rest of the Rangers' series with the San Diego Padres as he undergoes an evaluation for the inadvertent verbal miscues. According to the team, Barnett is attributing the incident Monday to a recurrence of migraine headaches.

The Los Angeles Board of Education is expected to vote Tuesday to appoint John Deasy as the next superintendent of the nation's second-largest school district, sources said Thursday. Deasy would replace Ramon C. Cortines, 78, who announced last year that he would retire this spring from the system he has headed since 2008. No Los Angeles Unified School District officials or administrators were willing to publicly discuss Deasy's presumed hiring. Employees said they had no authorization to do so, and elected officials said it would be improper to discuss the board's private deliberations.

State high-speed rail officials acknowledged Thursday that they changed their rules for selecting a builder for the bullet train's first phase in the Central Valley, a shift that subsequently made it possible for a consortium led by Sylmar-based Tutor Perini to be ranked as the top candidate despite receiving the lowest technical rating. The California High-Speed Rail Authority announced last week that the Tutor Perini-Zachry-Parsons joint venture was the top-rated contender among five bidders seeking to build the initial 29 miles of track between Madera and Fresno.

The NHL has tripled its annual revenue during the 1990s to about $1.4 billion, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday, adding that much of the increase is because of expansion in the United States.

Re "School policymakers face a test of their own," March 4 The controversy over the use of standardized tests for evaluation purposes is the result of the assumption that those tests currently in widespread use are capable of differentiating between effective and ineffective teachers. Contrary to popular belief, there is no evidence to support the belief that valid inferences can be made in this regard. That's why educators are so strongly opposed, not because they want to avoid accountability.

The consummate boss oiler is universally despised by peers, who rally at the water cooler, hissing: "What a brown-noser!"
