– $3,000 for a free deaf puppy
A dog shelter is giving away a deaf puppy for
free, but it is not really free because the
cost is about $3,000! Free or pay? Both!
The dog shelter is in Australia, and the
deaf puppy is of the Australian blue cattle dog
breed. A deaf couple in USA wanted to adopt that
deaf puppy. The cost of transporting the deaf
puppy by airplane is $3,000! Worth it? Yes, says
the deaf couple, one of them that works at a
– a boxing club in Idaho
There is a boxing club in Pocatello, Idaho. The name

about ten boxers that are in training on a daily
basis. The owner of the club is Casey McCreery,
a former boxer. And he is deaf. He stays in touch
with his boxers via text messages. He and a
trainer work together with their boxing stable.
Some of them have won medals at boxing events.
– how did Phyllis Frelich get the big Broadway role?
Phyllis Frelich was at Gallaudet during the sixties
when it was a Golden Era for deaf entertainment – Linda
Bove, Ed Waterstreet, Peter Wolf, Juliana Fjeld,
Jane Norman, Sam Edwards, John Corrado and few others.
Phyllis thought she could not get a role because of
her deafness. She met Robert Steinberg, a Broadway
scene and lightning designer. Realizing she wanted
a chance to act, he discussed this with playwright
Mark Medoff. That was how Mark came up with a play
specifically for a deaf actress. Because of Medoff,
Deaf Entertainment was never the same! Incidentally
Steinberg became Phyllis’ husband and they were
married for 46 years.
