$5.75 MILLION SETTLEMENT AWARDED TO DEAF AND BLIND STUDENTS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED BY GANG AT HAWAII PUBLIC SCHOOL
For more than a decade, some of the administrators and students at the Hawaii School for the Deaf and Blind covered up a terrible secret – young children between 12 and 16 years old were being terrorized – robbed, raped, sodomized and even gang raped on campus and on the school buses – not by employees, but by other children. One student heading a gang calling themselves the “Ringleaders” orchestrated the attacks, and students were ordered to participate as attackers or be retaliated against. Michael Green is one of five attorneys who successfully secured a $5,750,000 settlement last week from the state and a school counselor. / Hawaii Reporter

ORALINGUA SCHOOL IN WHITTIER TO CLOSE FRIDAY
Oralingua School for the Hearing Impaired Inc. will close its doors Feb. 28, according to Frank Hill, chairman of the school's board of directors. Hill said the school finally succumbed to late payments from public school districts, which pay the tuition for Oralingua's students. "The other thing that hurt us was one of our major foundations wants to focus on kids zero to 3," he said, noting that Oralingua's program works with children to a later age. But the school's main source of funding is the 33 public school districts it has contracts with, he said. / Whittier Daily News

DEAF WOMAN GETS ROBBED TWICE IN 2 WEEKS
The owner of these dogs, Pam Estes, was robbed again today. This is just two weeks to the day when she came home to find her champion dog killed. She went back to her home to check on it since she had been staying with a friend after the last break-in. When she arrived, she found the burglars in the back. They yelled and took off on foot. The burglars were trying to steal a laptop but they dropped it while running. / WSYX

VIP HOSTESS SUES MIDTOWN HOT SPOT LAVO FOR CAUSING HER 'HEARING LOSS'
A star-studded Midtown nightclub blasted music so loud that it caused a VIP hostess serious hearing loss, a new lawsuit states. Margaret Clemente claims Lavo’s thunderous dance music made her nearly deaf in one ear — rendering her unemployable — after bosses ignored repeated complaints about the noise. The aspiring actress said honchos at the hot spot pressured her to leave when she reported the disability. / New York Post

ADVOCATES FOR THE DEAF CONCERNED ABOUT SERVICES
Deaf people and their advocates are fighting to keep state-funded services for the deaf, even though state officials have said it is too early to worry that services will be cut. The worry stems from an announcement from the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation that some services for the deaf would end on June 30 because of a lack of funds. The state Department of Human Services has said it is premature to worry. / The Associated Press

DEAF COUPLE GETS HELP
I am writing to ask for help for an older couple I know. They have been married many years and are both deaf. I have tried to visit them a few times but they are not answering their door for me. Their curtains are drawn and the apartment they live in is dark. I know they are home because I have seen them peeking out at me. I know there is something wrong and they may be too embarrassed to let me know they are struggling. They are both very independent. Maybe if you came with me we could convince them to let us help. — Worried friend / Lake Geneva News

PRINCE HARRY LEARNS SIGN LANGUAGE IN VISIT TO HIS AFRICA CHARITY
Prince Harry returned to Lesotho, Africa, today on a charity trip, and one of the first things he did was learn a little sign language so he could communicate with deaf kids supported by his children's charity, Sentebale. Harry, 28, a British Army captain who has just returned from a four-month deployment to Afghanistan, arrived in southern Africa Monday on a three-day visit to Sentebale projects. / USA Today

PIPPA MIDDLETON BACKS SCHOOL FOR DEAF
Pippa Middleton is helping to promote a school for deaf children. The brunette beauty - younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge - is using her high profile to back the Mary Hare School for deaf youngsters, which is close to the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, South East England. Pippa -- who says she was moved to tears during the school's Christmas production of 'Mary Poppins' -- has already donated 10 per cent of sales from a signing of her party book 'Celebrate' to help raise funds. / Female First

DEAF FOOTBALLER DANIEL AILEY SAYS ABUSE HE EXPERIENCES IS 'THE SAME AS RACISM'
Daniel Ailey didn't give up playing football when a badly broken leg left him on the sidelines for a year. He didn't quit when a trial with Doncaster Rovers as a teenager ended in rejection. But Ailey, who is deaf and plays as a semi-professional for Potters Bar Town, in Hertfordshire, nearly walked away from the game following a home match in October against Grays Athletic, when the sound of the calls he uses to alert team-mates to his position was mocked by the away team's fans. / The Guardian

BOY'S PLEA OVER CLASSROOM HELP FOR DEAF PUPILS
A London schoolboy is leading a campaign to stop councils cutting funding for teachers of deaf children. Seven-year-old Matthew English, who wears hearing aids because one of his ears did not develop properly, appears in a film alongside Downton Abbey actor Jim Carter urging the Government to continue paying for vital services. In the film for the National Deaf Children's Society, Bromley-born Matthew also shared the spotlight with Pramface actress Scarlett Johnston. / London Evening Standard

RINGING IN YOUR EAR? IT COULD BE A SIGN YOU'RE JUST MOMENTS AWAY FROM GOING DEAF
The day that changed model and actress Jessica-Jane Clement’s life started ordinarily enough. The Real Hustle and I’m A Celebrity star was at home in London with her then boyfriend. Aged just 20 at the time, she was in perfect health. Jess was sitting on the sofa when she suddenly heard a ringing in her right ear. A few hours later when the ringing wore off, she realised her hearing in that ear had gone. ‘It was so quick,’ recalls Jess, now 27. / Daily Mail

'MY OWN BANK REFUSED TO HELP ME BECAUSE I'M DEAF,' SAYS HUCCLECOTE WOMAN
Shocked Gill Freeman was denied access to her own bank because she is deaf. The 57-year-old, from Hucclecote, phoned Halifax with the help of her interpreter but was left upset when the operator refused to help her. Despite being able to answer the security questions, she wasn't allowed to carry out her banking transactions after the worker cited the Data Protection Act. Even a supervisor wouldn't acknowledge Gill, who is a Gloucestershire County Council support worker for other deaf people. / This is Gloucestershire

LYING ON A SOUND BOX: DEAF CHILDREN LISTEN TO MUSIC
I cried at the end of Les Miserables, so the moment that the Welsh National Orchestra string section got started, and Katherine Mount stood there, signing and singing to her profoundly deaf -- but clearly enraptured -- 10-year-old son Ethan, I wasn't surprised to feel myself choking up again. It was towards the end of a long, joyful, but emotionally draining day with the orchestra and children from The Ysgol Maes Dyfan special school in Barry near Cardiff. Some of them are almost completely deaf and others have serious hearing problems, but the joy and enthusiasm shown by the children in their appreciation of the music they were experiencing was wonderful to see. / BBC

WORLD DEAF CHAMPIONSHIPS AWAIT YOUNG WINGER
Admittedly surprised when his then 7-year-old son Brandon asked to start playing hockey, Tim Mallach whole-heartedly welcomed the request — yet wondered about a potential obstacle. Not the one many people might expect, however. “When Brandon was three we took him to a skating class, but he became very upset.” recalled the elder Mallach, part of a Deaf Milton hockey family that includes Brandon, now 18, and 16-year-old Brittany. “He didn’t want to skate at all.” / Mississauga.com

CALLOUS ATTACKERS TARGET DEAF, MUTE MAN, 64, IN ROBBERY, ASSAULT
Police are hunting three callous teenage attackers who assaulted and robbed a deaf, mute 64-year-old man in Perth's eastern suburbs. About 9.30pm on Saturday night, the Swan View man noticed his electric scooter had been stolen from his back patio, so he went to the park opposite his house to look for it as it had been stolen before and abandoned there. As he crossed the park he was approached by three young men who came from the direction of the nearby lake. Two of them began pushing and shoving the man, and one of them smashed a bottle into his face. / Perth Now

TEEN WHO BASHED DEAF MAN DODGES JAIL

Joshua William Bignell, 18, bashed Seow Oh, 28, fracturing his eye socket, in Carlisle in June last year. Bignell bashed and kicked Mr Oh from behind as he was walking to his car parked at the station.

NEW LIVING LEARNING COMMUNITY WILL FOCUS ON AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE, DEAF STUDENTS
Eastern Kentucky University has for many years attracted deaf and hard-of-hearing students as well as those who want to serve and assist them. Now, students from both groups have another reason to consider the Richmond campus: a residence hall living-learning community devoted to ASL and deaf culture. Beginning this fall, the first two floors of eight-story Walters Hall will house a population comprised largely of deaf students, those who grew up in a deaf culture, and students majoring or minoring in interpreter education, deaf education or deaf studies. / EKU

As it turned out, the Learning Center for the Deaf's team didn't need any unfair advantage -- in either English or American Sign Language -- to handily defeat their foes from the New Jersey School for the Deaf, notching a 45-16 victory to the thrill of the hearing and non-hearing supporters behind them. / The MetroWest Daily News

Rats given the compound before being exposed to loud noise for long periods were found to be less likely to suffer long-term damage. Resveratrol may also fight the development of Alzheimer’s, cancer and other age-related conditions, according to study leader Dr. Michael Seidman of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. / Daily Express

SETTING A NEW TONE: SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF EYES NEW BUILDING, TECHNOLOGY IN $22M PLAN
Minimizing between-class travel and maximizing productive instruction time are two improvements Tennessee School for the Deaf officials hope to witness with a new high school building on the nearly 90-year-old South Knoxville campus. With Gov. Bill Haslam appropriating $22 million to the school as part of his state budget proposal for next year, TSD administrators have begun planning a modernization project. Included in that plan is a state-of-the-art all-inclusive high school educational building that would stop the current practice of students navigating their way between as many as five educational buildings on a given day, said school Superintendent Alan Mealka. / Knoxville News-Sentinel

DYNAMIC, DEAF RABBI BRINGING MESSAGE OF INCLUSIVITY
In Rabbi Darby Leigh’s sign language interpretation of the Shema, God is defined with a sweeping hand gesture that suggests awe; Israel with a two-part sign representing a people as well as a land. There are speedier ways to translate the prayer, but Leigh’s calls up the “ancient heavenly connection” poet Allen Ginsberg wrote about. The result is a prayer that is as much movement as it is language, a visual poetry that befits a former actor with the National Theater of the Deaf and a self-described truth seeker who can quote Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac one minute and the lyrics of the jam band Phish the next. / Jweekly.com

According to director Ira Domser, “The Sleep of Reason” is a contemporary Spanish play about Goya and his descent into madness after the end of the war with Napoleon. Throughout the play, because Goya is deaf, whenever he is on stage, the audience can only hear what Goya can hear, said Domser. / The Advocate
