Top stories about the deaf:

In Canada, a new panel has been created – the Panel on Labour Market
Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities. The group wants to find out why the deaf and the disabled cannot get jobs. Interestingly
enough no deaf individual has been selected to serve on the panel.

India has announced a new program to give cochlear implants to all deaf
children at no cost to them.

The town council meeting in Lander, Wyoming did not go too well for
one reason – one of the participants was hard of hearing who repeatedly
was not able to follow the discussions and became disruptive. For some
reason, no one in Lander thought of real time captions for the benefit
of the hard of hearing resident!

Once again Austin, Texas apparently has not learned its lesson when
it comes to dealing with the deaf. Settlement was reached regarding
a federal civil rights suit regarding police officers not knowing how
to deal with deaf people “not obeying” their verbal instructions!
This is the second time it happened, and will it happen again in
the future? Hope not!

The Arkansas saga re hiring of an utterly unqualified person to
serve as interpreter in the state government is endless.
The latest was that discussions between the two Walkers,
one deaf – Tom Walker, the president of the Arkansas Association
of the Deaf and one hearing –  Bill Walker, Director, Arkansas Department of Career Education, was intense and at times emotional. And at the end, the hearing Walker “agreed” to re-post the job
description, but on a short notice and on a short deadline date!
Just stay tuned during this continuing Arkansas Deaf Soap Opera!

Could a deaf therapist deal with hearing patients
especially when speech reading is involved?
This would be a good question, but a deaf therapist,
whose last name was not mentioned in a web posting,
said that it could be done with effective speech
reading and with the tolerance of hearing patients.
Bottom line – tolerance. Many hearing people lack
this tolerance.

Lifeguards are supposed to be brave while fighting the
waters to rescue swimmers in distress as well as to everyone’s
Lifeguards are not supposed to panic – but one did! A group
of deaf people went to a water park to have fun. It was all so
obvious to lifeguards surrounding the waters because these
deaf swimmers were signing with each other.
One such lifeguard was clueless. He was trying to shout
instructions to these deaf swimmers and panicked when there
were no responses. There was a commotion.
Fortunately the fellow lifeguards came over to the puzzled
lifeguard and explained that these swimmers were deaf!

Rene Pellerin’s corner:


Going to different hotels and timeshare resorts is difficult for me.

Being Deaf-Blind, I need to be given a “tour” of hotels and resorts in order to be safe while traveling in this new place.

The last place we went was a timeshare condo in Las Vegas.

Their walls were somewhat interesting but difficult for me.

One night I had to go to bathroom, feeling my way around without turning on the lights.

The walls made interesting jigs and jags. One area it turned, just 2 feet and my face crashed into another short wall!

Hey, we blind folks cannot memorize every site with one visit!

Rene’s show business is now entering its 2nd year and it
focuses on the Deaf-Blind.

Wish List of the Week:

that all police officers, responding to incidents,
doublecheck to see if the people involved are hearing
or deaf, instead of shooting up or tasering up first
only to find out of deafness afterwards.



End of the 19th century – deaf people have become
accepted as normal human beings instead of being
regarded as defectives
