– The football quarterback on a hearing team
is deaf and also a woman
The Arkansas Lady Rampage plays in the Spring
Football League, one of the several leagues
in women’s football. The team has 25 players,
and the team quarterback is Stephanie Brasel.
Because of her deafness, the team follows
her signs in the huddle. The team’s first game

– Deaf Weiss caterer and Deaf Weiss restauranteur in
the Los Angeles area
Jonathan Weiss is deaf and he owns his own catering
business in the Los Angeles area. Darren Weiss is deaf
and is the chef/owner of his own restaurant in
Manhattan Beach, which is in the metro Los Angeles
area. Jonathan and Darren, both brothers? No,
two different deaf men with same last name and they both
live in the same metropolitan area!
Jonathan, by the way, owned restaurants before he
shifted to food catering. Yes, both of them get together
from time to time. Do they discuss Food?
we talk about recipes, food, wine, staff and special projects
– a deaf golfer, a former champion, involved with Deaf Ministry
Years ago, deaf golfer Heather Suhr won three straight
Wisconsin high school state girls’ golf championships, the
only female golfer to achieve this feat. She then golfed at
University of Iowa for three seasons before transferring
to Purdue for her fourth season. Golf is no longer part of her
life. Working out of St Rita School for the Deaf, she is involved
with Deaf Ministry, reaching out to young deaf individuals
in the Cincinnati area. She said:
There are two other leaders in Cincinnati who work with me.
Together, we reach out to the deaf and hard-of-hearing teenagers.
– a Deaf Wedding on TV
On Sky Living, a British TV network, a popular program is
a reality wedding show. Every week, newlyweds compete against
each other – and the “best” wedding wins a prize trip
to a vacation resort site. Well, one of the wedding
contestants is deaf. Chivonne, a deaf woman, is going to
marry Remi, a hearing man. TV viewers are wondering if
one of competing bridegrooms will “learn” enough sign
language to get the deaf woman upset with her own wedding!
– Is Marlee Matlin a hearing person?
Marlee Matlin is deaf, of course. And everyone in USA knows
it. But for some reason Star Jones thought Marlee was a hearing
person. Star whispered something into Marlee’s ear during the
Donald Trump’s TV show. Marlee told Star she is deaf. Everyone
laughed and Star was terribly embarrassed. Star, herself, is
a brillant woman – as an attorney and as a TV talk show hostess,
yet she did something dumb!
