SPRINGFIELD TO PAY $450,000 TO DEAF MAN INJURED BY POLICE
The city of Springfield has agreed to pay $450,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a deaf man injured by a police officer in September 2012. Raymond Toll, 62, suffered a serious knee injury when Officer Charles Conrad forced him to the ground in the parking lot of an auto parts shop. Conrad handcuffed Toll shortly before the takedown, after a shop employee reported that Toll was causing a scene and possibly suicidal. Under the settlement deal, Toll will be paid $200,000 to compensate him for pain and suffering; $150,000 for attorney fees; $86,624 for medical bills; and $13,376 for various court costs. / The Columbian

DEAF VERMONTERS SEEK BETTER OPTIONS FOR SERVICES AND SCHOOLING
Tammy Eaddy asked her daughter to tell a reporter what it had been like at Underhill Central School, which Neila attended from 2011 until early 2014. "It was really hard to understand what was going on," Neila signed. Neila had an interpreter with her in class, she recalled, but still, "If I was stuck with my homework, I would just go home and ask my mom for help." Neila's mom pressed her to talk about what the mainstream elementary school was like for her socially. "It was hard to understand my friends," Neila replied. / Seven Days
BLACK HISTORY MONTH CELEBRATION TO HONOR 'COLORED SCHOOL' FOR THE DEAF
Several local historical groups are collaborating to present an all-day event Thursday celebrating Black History Month. This year’s celebration is focusing on the history of the “colored school” at the Kentucky School for the Deaf, which existed from 1885 to 1963. KSD became the first state-supported school of its kind in the nation in 1823. In 1885, the school accepted blacks, but they were segregated into the KSD “colored division” and didn’t have the same expectations or opportunities as their white counterparts. / The Advocate Messenger
DEAF STUDENT RAISES NEARLY $4,000
Columbus East High School senior Nicole Lee Wheeler’s senior project encourages people spiritually, builds awareness for the area’s deaf community and supports the work of a variety of area nonprofits. No wonder the Seymour resident got so emotional that she shed a few tears recently when she realized her ongoing fundraising effort with Seymour’s Central Christian Church signing choir recently had raised nearly $4,000 for the Seymour Lions Club. / The Republic

ELECTRIC COMPANY DISCONNECTS SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has disconnected power to the Kyebi School for the Deaf in the Eastern Region for not paying bills.

DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING NEW ZEALANDERS LEFT GUESSING
TV coverage of the Cricket World Cup does not include closed captioning when broadcast by Sky New Zealand on either the Sky Sport channels or Sky owned free broadcaster Prime. When Australia and New Zealand battle it out at Eden Park on Saturday, Australian TV viewers will be able to watch the game with closed captioning but not the well deserving Kiwis. So howzat been allowed to happen? Simply, though both are sporting mad nations, Australia has legislation in place to require broadcast captioned coverage. New Zealand does not. / Scoop News

PETITION SAYS DEAF, DISABLED, TRANSGENDERED PEOPLE WOULD NEGATIVELY EFFECT NEIGHBORHOOD
Shock and outrage are some of the feelings being expressed online after controversial comments made by a group hoping to stop the construction of an addiction recovery house in North Vancouver. A petition, circulated at a public meeting, says that the facility would bring people in unsafe situations into the community. In a poorly blacked-out statement that is still quite visible, the petition states “transgender, deaf and disabled” people are also among those who would “hugely affect the neighbourhood in a negative way.” / NEWS 1130

HOMELESS DEAF MAN JAILED FOR KILLING MAN BY KNOCKING HIM UNDER BUS
A deaf speech-impaired man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for killing an acquaintance by knocking him under a bus. Judge Patrick McCartan said he had no choice but to imprison Edward Connors, 30, as he was a "serious danger to society."

PEDIUS APP CONVERTS SPEECH TO TEXT IN REAL TIME TO LET DEAF PEOPLE 'HEAR' PHONE CALLS
Calling to book a table, make a doctor's appointment or phoning for help when stranded at the side of the road are tasks many people take for granted. But for the deaf, simple tasks like these typically require expensive equipment or a mediator - until now. The Pedius app was created to help deaf people speak to friends, family and businesses on the phone using voice recognition and real-time speech translation. / Daily Mail
SEVERELY DISABLED GIRL TOLD TO CLAIM BENEFITS IN GERMANY
Ava Jolliffe, who lives in Lancashire, is profoundly deaf, certified blind and has to use a wheelchair. She requires constant care but the Government has told her she is not entitled to the care component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) -- because her father Graham Jolliffe works in Germany. Her father pays the equivalent of National Insurance in Germany, meaning her family have been told by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) that they should be claiming help from authorities over there. / Daily Express

NON-PROFIT HELPS DEAF CHILDREN LEARN ABOUT CHRISTIANITY
There were minimal resources available when Marshall and Terry Lawrence discovered their daughter Rachel was deaf. They struggled to communicate with her. They struggled to find ways to help her.

DEAF WEST BRINGS SIGN LANGUAGE TO DAVID MAMET'S CLASSIC 'AMERICAN BUFFALO'
Al Pacino and Robert Duvall are among the performers who have played Teach, the deluded, out-of-control conman who spurs much of the seamy shenanigans in David Mamet’s American Buffalo. While I’ve never been privileged to see either in the role, I’d put money on the competitive excellence of Troy Kotsur, a signing performer whose sizzling portrayal dominates the current Deaf West production at Cal State L.A.’s State Playhouse. / LA Weekly

JADA PINKETT SMITH BROUGHT DEAF CAT HOME FROM CHINA
Will Smith was left frustrated when his wife Jada Pinkett Smith adopted a deaf cat from China. "We found out the hard way -- the cat is sitting up on the table going, 'Meow! Meow! Meow!' I was like, 'Babe, that cat's mentally disturbed.' We take the cat to the doctor and he's like, 'Oh no - he's deaf.' And I'm like (to Jada), 'You brought a deaf cat back from China?'" The Hollywood couple decided to send the cat to a local school for the deaf and blind as a pet for the children. / Good4Utah.com
DEAF RAPPERS FIGHT TO BE HEARD IN A FIELD DOMINATED BY SOUND
It was fall of 2011, and I was in a loading dock at Gallaudet University, the U.S.’s primary college for the Deaf and hard of hearing (HOH), for a campus party. Mylar laid on the floor reflected sharp green lasers and shot across the cave-like venue. The stage is packed, too, with a revolving rotation of DJs and rappers signing as they spat. Leading up to that night, many students effectively scared me with warnings. “Wait until tonight,” they told me through an interpreter. Multiple people emphatically advised earplugs. “If not, you’ll be Deaf, too!” one joked. / Wondering Sound

Former University of New Orleans lockdown defender and business management graduate Kentrell Martin, 32, will sign copies of books from his award-winning Shelly’s Adventures series March 7 at Costco and March 28 at Barnes & Noble.

Shelly’s goal is to teach the world and those around her ASL so they can communicate with the deaf.” / The Tampa Tribune
DEAF BASEBALL PLAYER CHASE SMARTT HELPS TEAM WIN STATE TITLES AS HE EMERGES AS TOP PROSPECT
At first, the diagnosis appeared devastating. Doctors delivered the news that nerve damage at birth caused Chase Smartt, the 2½-year-old son of Mark and Deborah Smartt, to be deaf. “We had no idea, no concept,” said Mark Smartt, now an assistant baseball coach at Troy University. “No one in my family or my wife’s family had ever had a hearing impairment.” That was 1998. Fast forward to today, as Chase Smartt takes his usual spot behind the plate at Charles Henderson High School’s baseball practice. / AL.com
