This just in –

The Arizona Attorney General’s and Auditor General’s offices
are looking into possible conflicts of interest as
well as high traveling expenses incurred by Arizona State
Schools for the Deaf and the Blind Superintendent Robert
Hill and Board President Bernhardt Jones. A hot issue is
that both Hill and Jones may have a business relationship
that has nothing to do with the school operations. Right
now it is one big mess!

Top stories about the deaf:

Deaf residents of Alberta are upset over the closing of
the interpreting program at Lakeland College, afraid
it would mean less interpreters serving the Deaf
Community. This would leave University of Alberta
offering the only such program in the province.

Captioning companies normally do not apologize for
their real-time captioning errors, but this one
did – Caption Solutions. Two names were mixed up –
Zooey Deschanel, a celebrity, and the Boston
Marathon bomber. The captioning company, unfortunately,
identified the bomber as Zooey Deschanel, causing
red faces everywhere.

Yet, another deafness cure even in today’s era of
modern and high tech medicine! In a Middle East
nation, bee venom has been injected into the
forehead of a deaf man in the belief his deafness
will disappear. Owning that bee venom therapy
center is an agricultural engineer with no
background, whatsover, on deafness issues.

The Austine School for the Deaf/Vermont Center for
the Deaf and Hard of Hearing will be having a
new president/CEO in William B Gurney, an educational
administrator of local school districts. It is not
known if he has had any experience working with the deaf.

Kansas’ loss is Minnesota’s gain. David Rosenthal
is leaving his position with the Kansas Telecommunications
Industry Association for a new position with the Division
of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services under auspices of
the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

ASL IN YAKIMA, WASHINGTON
Yakima is the 8th largest city in Washington; population
is just under 100,000 people. Yet, Yakima is probably USA’s #1
ASL city!
Employees at Yakima’s stores, shops and restaurants know
some ASL. They learned ASL from four different high schools
and from two different colleges.
And there are three coffee cafe chat events where hearing
people are invited to join in and practice their ASL.
A deaf person said Yakima is so much better than some bigger
cities, especially Washington, DC, for ASL users!

A CHALLENGE FOR DEAF FILMMAKERS
What is a challenge for Deaf Filmmakers? Pitch a TV series
that revolves around Undercover Boss, Restaurant Stakeout and
Mystery Diners themes.
We need to show how much discrimination exists in all phrases
of a typical deaf person’s life. If there is a certain type of
discrimination, the deaf person knows all about it, but the
public doesn’t!

A SMALL TOWN DEAF EMT
We have had cases of deaf individuals that want to become
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) but were denied because
of their deafness.
Shane Steele, who is deaf, is a small town EMT
(Sparta, Tennessee). This town only has nearly 4,600 people.
Maybe there is a catch – Shane’s parents were EMTs
also his father worked in the town volunteer fire department.
Much easier in small towns if family connections are strong!

WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

A Taiwan newspaper story about a deaf man, said:

His mother trained him to speak by sending him to cram

Cram schools? In Asia, cram school is the one that offers
specialized training in certain areas. So, there are
cram oral schools for the deaf!

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Years ago vocational training programs were popular in
schools for the deaf. Not any more. Why?

A. Vocational training is still important. We need electricians,
plumbers, carpenters, bricklayers, auto body technicians, etc.
Times have changed. Academics take a higher priority over
vocational training programs. And besides it has become more
costly for these schools to maintain these programs (machinery,
equipment, specialized teachers, etc). When machines get
obsolete, replacing them are costly. This is not to say
deaf people cannot get vocational training; they may need
to seek training after they graduate from schools for the
deaf, not while they are deaf school students. It differs
state by state.

Rene Pellerin’s corner:

Baking

My wife prepared quiche the other day.

She placed two uncooked quiche on a cookie sheet

She then rushed to a job and texted me instructions to bake the quiche!

I was supposed to balance tray full of liquid into a hot oven!

Here is a less likely spill approach to baking the pies!

Preheat the oven, place empty pie crusts on cookie sheet.

When oven is ready, open the oven, with oven mitts slide out a rack.

Place cookie sheet with pie shells on the oven rack.

Pour the liquid mix into the pie crusts and with oven mitts
slowly slide the rack back into the oven.

No burned mess!

Rene’s show business is now entering its 3rd year and it
focuses on the Deaf-Blind.
