Top stories about the deaf:
Deaf advocates in Great Britain are arguing
against the use of Blue Badge parking permits.
Blue Badge refers to the color of these special
parking permits and they are saying that since
deafness is an invisible disability these
parking permits would not do them any good!
A Nebraska legislator is pushing for ASL
to be an officially recognized language
in the state.
Emma Viskic, a deaf writer, is having her book
“Darkness For Light” published. It involves
a fictional deaf detective trying to solve a
crime.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute won a $1 million
National Science Foundation grant to see how
computers can help deaf learn ASL better
in the classroom.
A tradition has continued at New York
School for the Deaf, as far as Paul Feiner
(not deaf) is concerned. He was re-elected to
another two year term as Greenburgh Town (NY)
Supervisor. He started the tradition 30
years ago of being sworn-in at the school
and it continues.

A CUTE HEARING GRANDCHILD
    A deaf husband and wife both have a cute hearing
grandchild from their hearing daughter.
    The cute child knows that her grandparents are
deaf – but she thinks everyone is deaf. When she
grows up she then realizes there are deaf people
and there are hearing people!

UNDERCOVER BOSS
    Undercover Boss is a popular TV program. Yet,
we have never seen a deaf person on the program –
either as an employee or as a boss.
    Is it possible some day?

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
I went snowshoeing the other day with a friend who does SSP work with me from
time to time.
I have been snowshoeing for years, since our street borders a Vermont State
Park!
I have gone alone for many years exploring the area and checking on folks who
are ice fishing.
My vision kept getting worse as it was more difficult for me to find the trails.
Even when the trails already have snowshoe prints, it is difficult now.
So if I go alone again, I’ll just use the open space to exercise.
When I have an SSP, we’ll go through the woods together!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
