Top stories about the deaf:

Don Feare, a police officer in Weatherford, Texas
was honored by his peers for his handling of
a 16-year old deaf girl who was going through
domestic issues at home. At the end, the grateful
girl showed the police officer her name-sign.

L’Chef is a catalog company in St George, Utah,
specializing in kitchen equipment. It sells
products under the names of Nutrimill, Bosch and
L’Equip. After hiring a group of deaf people
to work in the factory, the general manager
has asked the Southern Utah State Services
to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to help teach
ASL with the hearing employees. So far, the
general manager is very happy with these
deaf employees.

The executives at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma,
have been discussing with deaf leaders on how to
make their facility accessible.

Supreme Sign Institute, an agency in Ghana, is pushing
all service providers to use sign language to communicate
with deaf clients.

A MOTHER OPPOSING HER DEAF DAUGHTER FROM ATTENDING GALLAUDET
It probably may not happen these days but it happened about
30-35 years ago.
An ambitious young deaf woman wanted to attend Gallaudet. Her
mother vigorously opposed it, feeling that deaf women are only good
for employment, marriage and family.
Despite violent arguments, the mother was steadfast in her refusal.
The deaf woman was forced to abandon her life dreams.
DeafDigest editor knew her and still feels about it.

DEAF PEOPLE WITH PERFECT SPEECH
There are some deaf people with perfect speech. They practiced
their speech every day all their lives until it has become perfect.
But their perfect speech comes at a price. Many hearing people
refuse to believe that these perfect-speech people are deaf.
And as a result, there have been unpleasant moments while mingling
with the hearing.
This is the reason why some of these perfect-speech deaf are
more comfortable with the deaf!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

A few years ago, I ordered flowers for Valentine Day.

My neighbor came to my door with the flowers.

I was puzzled and complained to the florist about them
delivering to the wrong house.

I also complained about no card coming with the flowers!

My wife said, “They might be from my boyfriend!”

The florist sent me a message to inform me that my
neighbor was working for the florist!

A couple days later, my grandson, age 5 at that time,
found the card deep inside the vase!

Well, RED is the color of the season!
