Top stories about the deaf:

Deaf people that use interpreters to allow them
to function in jobs in Great Britain may be
facing a crisis as the government may cut back
on funding of these interpeters.

The state of Minnesota officially celebrated the
Martin Luther King Jr Day. One of the people
honored is Galinda Goss-Kuehn. She is deaf and
is being honored for her work with the Deaf Adult
Basic Education Program

Four small Japanese towns have set up a set of procedures
to send emergency messages for deaf residents in case of
disasters (floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc).

There was a story run in an Australian newspaper about
one deaf person, whose ears are sensitive enough to
determine how the wind turbines are performing.

The Tennessee College of Applied Technology has
honored Julie Ebers as the Student of the Month.
She is deaf and her goal is to become a nurse.

LAST MINUTE AIR FLIGHTS IMPOSSIBLE FOR SOME DEAF
Last minute air flights are not impossible, depending on
vacant seats. But for some deaf people, it may be
impossible at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
This airport requires 48 hours advance notice for
deaf people with Cochlear Implants or with hearing aids. The reason
is screening by x-ray and the security people do not
want last minute problems.
But for deaf people without CI or hearing aids, they are
OK for last minute tickets.

A DEAF STUFF SOLD OUT
Several times in DeafDigest, it was mentioned
that the Grace Coolidge coin had a big irony.
She taught at Clarke School for the Deaf before
she married and became the First Presidential
Lady.
Yet the coin had this U-S-A fingerspelled.
Clarke School has never permitted the use of
sign language nor of the fingerspelling. Anyway
this coin, open for public sale, was sold out.
Most coin sales last for some time, but this
Coolidge coin was quickly gone! This information
was provided by deaf coin collector Kenneth S.
Rothschild. Again, for a look at this coin:
The picture of that coin is at:
