Whittier, CA
TEMPERS FLARE OVER CLOSING OF SCHOOL FOR DEAF CHILDREN
A very ugly scene broke out last Friday morning at Oralingua School for the hearing impaired in Whittier. And a KTLA photographer was in the middle of it. There was pushing and punching. Our cameraman couldn’t see all of it because the head of the PTA attacked him, trying to prevent him from shooting the explosive scene. The woman actually broke a microphone off his camera and then tried another course of action. Police arrived and eventually arrested one of the men involved in the fight – a parent – on assault charges. / KTLA

Honolulu, HI
HAWAII HAS UNIQUE SIGN LANGUAGE FOR DEAF
A sign language developed in Hawaii over generations is in danger of fading away, researchers say. A study at the University of Hawaii at Manoa concluded a small group of deaf islanders are still able to communicate with a vocabulary of hand signs that was developed before the universal sign language now in use was introduced in the 1940s. Hawaiian Sign Language had its origins in the early 1800s and is practiced by about 40 Hawaiians. Most are over the age of 80. / UPI

San Antonio, TX
'LOUD POP' MIRACULOUSLY ALERTS DEAF WOMAN TO BURNING HOUSE
A deaf woman managed to wake up and escape from her home just moments before flames consumed her bedroom early Thursday morning. The fire started around 2 a.m. in the 400 block of Stonewall Street. The 58-year-old woman living at the home communicated to her sister that she woke up when she heard or felt a loud pop. She managed to get out of the house just before the fire consumed her room. The woman said her sister is completely deaf and that it's a miracle she was able to hear the noise and get out safely. / KENS 5

Denver, CO
FEDS PROBE DENVER FOR VIOLATING DEAF PRISONER RIGHTS
The federal Justice Department is investigating Denver for failing to provide sign-language interpreters for deaf prisoners. Investigators are seeking to determine whether Denver – which touts itself as “one of America’s most accessible cities” — is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. In a November 20, 2012, letter obtained by The Colorado Independent, the Justice Department threatened legal action and noted that any violation of the Act might jeopardize federal funding for the city’s police and sheriff departments. / The Colorado Independent

Orange Park, FL
DEAF MAN ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT
An Orange Park man faces one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill following a fight on Feb. 23 Matthew Silvay, 24, was arrested after he got into a fight at a home in the 3500 block of Loango Road in Orange Park. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office investigator who went to the home stated in the report that he was familiar with Silvay from previous encounters and knew he was deaf. The investigator was able to sort out the fight after an sign language interpreter arrived at the home. Justin Kilgore told police that Silvay drove up to his home and exited huis car while wielding a silver metal baseball bat. / Clay Today

Randallstown, MD
GENESIS AGREES TO PROVIDE SERVICES FOR DEAF PATIENTS AS PART OF SETTLEMENT
Genesis HealthCare reached a settlement with HHS resolving allegations that the skilled-nursing provider failed to provide interpreting services for a deaf patient. The settlement agreement stems from a complaint the resident's sister filed in 2010 with HHS' Office for Civil Rights against Genesis' skilled-nursing facility in Randallstown, Md. The terms call for Genesis facilities to provide accommodations for its deaf or hard of hearing patients; operate an auxiliary aids-and-services hotline; form an advisory committee to offer guidance on effective communication; and monitor compliance through feedback from patients and their advocates. / Modern Healthcare

DEAF STUDENT ADVANCES IN SPELLING BEE
One little fifth-grade girl will face triple the challenge of her competitors in the upcoming Scripps Regional Spelling Bee. Yaquelin Anaya is hearing-impaired but didn’t let that stop her when competing in Cunningham Elementary School’s campuswide contest. Not only does she come from a home where only Spanish is spoken, but she still is learning English and is perfecting her sign language. / Times Record News

DEAF PERCEPTION
On Monday, a workshop and presentation was held for Dr. Jane K. Fernandes. Afterwards, there was a reception held in her honor. This program, called “White Power and Privilege in the Deaf Community,” truly advocated for the deaf culture, and derived from the past experiences and observations in Fernandes’ life. Fernandes talked of the discrimination she felt as a child, remembering “the discrimination based on [her] difference, helped [her] make friends” with others who suffered different forms of social injustice and discrimination. During the course of her life, Fernandes endured many circumstances that were hard to believe. / Racquet

DEAF GIRL MISSING FOR 12 YEARS IS REUNITED WITH HER FAMILY THANKS TO DELHI POLICEMAN
They say that every cloud has a silver lining. And the story of Galiman, a speech and hearing-impaired girl from Assam, would seem to bear that out. Now a young woman, she was separated from her family after accidentally boarding the wrong bus in India's crowded capital when she was 15 years old. Today, after 12 long years apart, she and her brother Jalil Ahmad can hold each at last thanks to the help and generosity of a Delhi police officer. / Daily Mail

Dublin, Ireland
COUPLE MUST TAKE DEAF SON TO UK FOR SURGERY AFTER HOSPITAL REFUSES DONOR'S OFFER
A deaf boy has been told to travel to the UK for a life-changing operation despite an anonymous donor offering to pay for his €20,000-plus ($26,000 US) surgery here. Liam Cunneen-McCormack, 6, has been refused the surgery in Dublin because of a funding impasse between the Health Service Executive (HSE) and Beaumont Hospital. His parents, Julie and Keith, were initially told by a medic that his hearing was normal. The full extent of his deafness was not discovered until he was 17 months old. / Independent

Dublin, Ireland
ALL WELCOME AS DEAF VILLAGE OPENS ITS DOORS
For a state-of-the-art sports and social complex, the choice of name is a bold one. Yet there it is, in huge letters above the entrance: Deaf Village Ireland. It’s very much open to the local community and, indeed, that patronage will be essential to the facility’s long-term viability. Just before it opened for business at the end of last month, the facility’s developers, the Catholic Institute for Deaf People, ran a naming competition within the deaf community in a bid to come up with an alternative – perhaps more neutral – name for the €15 million ($19.5 million US) facility. But the “deaf village” tag clearly stuck, and Deaf Village Ireland it was. / The Irish Times

Bath, England
BATH FLANKER MAT GILBERT: I MAY BE DEAF BUT I KNOW HOW TO SURVIVE ON THE RUGBY FIELD
At first glance, as he makes his way through the work, Mat Gilbert looks indistinguishable from his colleagues. He has thighs the size of a small car, shoulders so big the workmen will doubtless next be employed widening the doors. It is only when you get close that you realise what makes Gilbert stand out from his muscular peers. In both ears can be seen a hearing aid. Gilbert is the only deaf professional sportsman in England, obliged to wear those aids under his skull cap as he steps into the unforgiving acres of the Aviva Premiership. / The Telegraph

Gloucestershire, England
DEAF POPULATION IN OUTCRY OVER BIG FIRMS AND THEIR PHONE LINES
Big firms are struggling to get their heads around Gloucester's deaf people ringing up their customer service lines. That's the message from scores of people who say they are being barred from communicating with operators over the phone because they are helped by sign language interpreters to make the call. Profoundly deaf Gill Freeman, 57, was barred for speaking to a Halifax operator about her own bank account because she was signing to her qualified interpreter who was relaying the conversation. Her story caused outrage in the deaf community. / This is Gloucestershire

STRUGGLING MUM-OF-SIX DISMAYED AT HEATHER FROST "COUNCIL MANSION' SCANDAL
Deaf mum-of-six Sam Preest said she is struggling to cope in a two-and-a-half bed house. Her five sons, one of whom is disabled, share a single bedroom at her Innsworth home. Sam's daughter is shoehorned into a tiny box room and she and her partner Kevin, 47, sleep in another room. But a six-year battle for a bigger house goes on. They are dismayed jobless mum-of-11 Heather Frost, who lives in nearby Churchdown, has landed a £400,000 ($600,000 US) six-bedroom Severn Vale Housing home for her large brood. / This is Gloucestershire

BURGLAR ADMITS BREAKING INTO DEAF-BLIND MAN'S WORKSHOP
A crook has admitted breaking into a deaf-blind man’s workshop and stealing a quad bike. Kieran Kirk, 22, admitted taking the quad from Graham Hicks’ home on November 21 last year. Mr Hicks, 51, who runs a cycle repair business, also lost other equipment in the break-in. Kirk was visibly anxious as he stood in the dock, and pleaded guilty to one count of burglary at Peterborough Crown Court last Thursday, which only related to the quad bike. / Peterborough Telegraph

LETTER: PEOPLE, NOT EARS, ARE DEAF
Re: “Marois’s plea fell on deaf ears” (Gazette, Feb. 26). I am sure that neither the students demonstrating at the education summit nor the deaf people who live in our community have “deaf ears.” People, not ears, are deaf. Isn’t it time that The Gazette stops insulting deaf people with this worn-out metaphor? / Montreal Gazette

DEAF ARTIST ENTERS WORK IN ARCHIBALD PRIZE
Maryborough resident Patrick Phillips has used his "first language" to enter one of Australia's biggest and most prestigious art prizes. Mr Phillips has been deaf since birth and uses art to express himself. "In the absence of a spoken language, my first memories take the form of shapes and pictures," he said. "My thoughts were converted to my first written language -- pictures." Mr Phillips entered the Archibald Prize with his portrait titled The Good Shepherd, a portrait of his former teacher. / Fraser Coast Chronicle

EXPANDING HOT-POT CHAIN CHALLENGES DEAF EMPLOYMENT DEFICIT
When a customer moves their thumb up or down toward Sun Zhongyue, the young waiter just replies with a shy smile. That is the way to say "thanks" and "you're welcome" in a special hot-pot restaurant manned by 11 deaf waitstaff including Sun. The east Beijing eatery, named "Xinhuoguo," literally "hot-pot with love," is a franchised store under the Liuyishou Group, a leading spicy hot-pot brand from southwest China. Such initiatives focusing on disabled employment have come under the spotlight on Sunday, China's National Ear Care Day, marked annually on March 3. / People's Daily Online

Beijing, China
DEAF TO THE SIGNS OF AN IMPENDING PROBLEM
Many factors can cause hearing loss, including the degeneration of organs with increasing age, damage to nerves and blood vessels by toxins, diseases and injuries. While age is the single biggest cause of hearing impairment, the modern urban lifestyle can contribute to age-related hearing loss, with direct damage to the ear, experts say. "About 15 years ago, I had few patients complaining of hearing loss in a whole year," says Chen Chongxue, an ear, nose and throat specialist with No 1 Hospital of Tsinghua University in Beijing. "These days, I am seeing such patients every day, and many of them are young." / China Daily

HEARING-IMPAIRED BOY LIVES EVERY KID'S DREAM: BECOMING A SUPERHERO
Five-year-old Anthony Smith didn't think superheroes wore hearing aids, until he became one. His mother, Christina D'Allesandro, says the epic journey began in May, when her superhero-fanatic son, who is deaf in one ear and partially deaf in the other, refused to wear his blue hearing aid because "superheroes don't wear hearing aids" either. Desperate, she decided to consult the experts. A few weeks later, the mother of two was shocked to get an overwhelming response from Marvel, including comic book art that honored her son. / CNN

MOMENT DEAF GIRL, 5, HEARS FOR THE FIRST TIME
A Tulsa family is celebrating after the deaf little girl they adopted from China was able to hear for the first time -- a moment they described as "breathtaking." Gifted a cochlear implant, Jayde Scholl now squeals and laughs with delight as she listens to the sound of her adoptive mother Jaque Scholl's voice. On Tuesday the implant was switched on, marking the end of a two adoption process for Jayde after she spent the first four years of her life in a Chinese orphanage after being abandoned in a town square at the age of eight-months. / Daily Mail

'SWITCHED AT BIRTH' GOES SILENT TO SHINE LIGHT ON DEAF CULTURE
“Until hearing people walk a day in our shoes, they will never understand,” says a guidance counselor at a high school for deaf students on Switched at Birth. Such insights are a staple of the ABC Family drama, a TV rarity that puts deaf characters, played by deaf or hearing- impaired actors, at the center of the action. But the episode tonight [March 4] takes it a bold step further: Save for a few spoken words at the beginning and the end, it is silent. / The Columbus Dispatch

FOR DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING, THE JOY OF LIVE MUSIC
On the last night of the 2012 Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, the sun set over a crowd of thousands who had stood for hours waiting to see Jack White, the headliner. A figure strode onto the stage, setting off a cascade of cheers. But it was not Jack White, the singer-guitarist, it was Barbie Parker, the festival’s lead sign language interpreter. Ms. Parker, a Texas native, and members of her Austin-based company, LotuSIGN, had interpreted more than 20 bands’ sets for deaf and hard of hearing festival attendees that weekend. As evidenced by the positive reception she received, her interpretations had won over a good part of the hearing audience as well. / The New York Times
