MAN ACCUSED OF DUI CRASH THAT KILLED DEAF MOTHER OF 3 APPEARS IN COURT
Prosecutors say a man accused of killing a deaf mother of three children and seriously injuring her sister while he was driving drunk, told officers he was on his way home after drinking two pitchers of beer in downtown Missoula. A Missoula couple called 911 just before 1:30 a.m. Thursday after a pickup truck driven by that Tom George Vineyard, 38, hit the two women and then slid into their yard. Investigators say Roberta Demmert, 39, and her sister, Pamela, lived nearby and were on their way to the store to buy cigarettes when they were hit. Both women were taken to the hospital where Roberta was later pronounced dead. / KXLF

A 24-year-old man set fire to a house in Tobyhanna Township early Thursday, nearly killing four people inside, police said. Pocono Mountain Regional police said the four people in the home are deaf.

DNA LINKS INMATE TO 1986 RAPE OF DEAF WOMAN
Kansas City cold-case sex-crimes detectives have linked a federal inmate to the unsolved rape of a deaf woman in 1986, according to court records released Friday. Jackson County prosecutors charged Alphonso Henderson, 50, with robbery, forcible sodomy and three counts of rape. He is in a Virginia federal penitentiary for being a felon in possession of a firearm. His previous record includes convictions for assault, false imprisonment, sodomy and burglary. He was set to be released in about 12 years, but police said the new charges could keep him behind bars much longer. / The Kansas City Star

SOUND THE ALARM: ADVOCATE FOR DEAF PRESSURES CITY TO REPAIR FIRE ALARM BOXES
Broken fire alarm boxes are scattered across the five boroughs, by the thousands. Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano confirmed that last week. "About a third of them are out of service," he said. They are out despite a federal mandate requiring them to work, primarily for people with disabilities, such as the deaf and hearing impaired, who can't use a phone to report an emergency, but instead are taught to either use the boxes with pull handles or to tap on the push-button boxes that provide a dispatcher through a speaker. / NY1

GROWING DEMAND FOR DEAF-FRIENDLY SENIOR HOUSING REMAINS UNMET
For years the Florida Association of the Deaf has campaigned to build federally subsidized apartments for the deaf on limited incomes, specifically in South Florida, according to a Sun Sentinel article. June McMahon, president of the association, has been on the lookout for accessible housing that suits severely hearing-impaired seniors. But when calling several senior living communities to schedule a visit, requests for an interpreter to assist in the community tours were rejected. “They said no. So we stopped right there,” McMahon said. / Senior Housing News

KENTUCKY DEAF-BLIND PROJECT HELPS LEXINGTON BOY MASTER THE TECHNOLOGY HE NEEDS
Joseph Boggs' vision is so impaired that it is as if he is looking through two straws. The 13-year-old's hearing loss is considered severe to profound, depending upon what sounds he is trying to distinguish. But Joseph's congenital disabilities lessen in significance as he uses a Refreshabraille 18, a small device that connects to his iPad through Bluetooth and allows him to read Braille. Joseph, a seventh-grader at Bryan Station Middle School, and his mother, June Boggs, said that's just one example of the technology he's been using this year while working with Diane Haynes of the Kentucky Deaf-Blind Project. / Lexington Herald-Leader

FIRE AT A RUSSIAN SCHOOL KILLS 28 DEAF BOYS
Asleep and unable to hear the frantic shouts of adults, 28 deaf boys died April 11 after a fire consumed their boarding school in the Caspian Sea city of Makhachkala in the Russian republic of Dagestan. At least 106 other boys were injured, 22 critically. It was the second major school fire in four days, coming on the heels of a blaze in Siberia that killed 22 children in a gymnasium dressing room. The disaster left average Russians stunned and enraged over the perilous state of poorly maintained school buildings. ''All Russians are grieving,'' President Vladimir V. Putin said. / The New York Times

FOOTBALL MATCH IN GAZA BECOMES UNUSUAL AS PLAYERS, REFEREES ARE DEAF
In any regular football match, fans on terraces loudly applause when players scream at each others, asking another player to pass the ball to his colleague to score a goal and suddenly the referee whistles due to a foul, but the situation is totally different in a Gaza football match. In a football stadium in northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahia, the situation was completely different where all the players, the referees and most of the fans sitting on the terraces were deaf. Instead of shouting or whistling, the scene was amazing when referees used colorful flags instead of the whistle. / Global Times

MEDICAL MARVEL: MEQUON MAN BECOMES THE FIRST DEAF DOCTOR EVER TO GRADUATE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN
A couple years ago, families with deaf children had to pay thousands of dollars, out of pocket, for a device that would allow their child to hear. The I-Team pressed the issue until 2009 when lawmakers finally required insurance companies to help pay for cochlear implants. The change has helped hundreds of Wisconsin families and now it's helping Josh Reiher make medical history. On Friday, he became the first deaf person to graduate from the University of Wisconsin medical school. / WTMJ

DEAFREVIEW GIVES A VOICE TO DEAF CONSUMERS
From picking up dry cleaning to picking up coffee, Melissa “echo” Greenlee spent years struggling with the everyday tasks hearing people take advantage of every day. Some people ignored Greenlee. Others rolled their eyes. Greenlee, who is deaf, found ordering takeout on the phone especially challenging. Using an automated relay call service, she found restaurant employees would hang up on her — once, twice, three times. Frustrated with such customer service, Greenlee founded deafReview, a Yelp-like review site for deaf, deaf-blind and hard-of-hearing individuals to rate businesses. / The Seattle Times

Most of us take hearing and speaking for granted. Don’t. It is hard enough to pitch your idea with words. Now imagine doing it in sign language.

"A Kind of Alaska" was revived last month as part of a festival honoring Oliver Sacks’ eightieth birthday. It’s a short play, and it was actually performed twice, back to back. First there was a traditional, Pinteresque interpretation, with long silences between outbursts of speech. The second performance took place entirely in silence, by a cast of actors performing in American Sign Language. The audience was mixed, hearing and Deaf, and there was no interpretation for the benefit of the hearing. / Studio 360

I'M A DEAF BEACH VOLLEYBALL PLAYER REPRESENTING THE U.S. IN THE 2013 DEAFLYMPICS
In my humble opinion, 'deaf volleyball' facilitates true on-court chemistry. Often, hearing people ask me how deaf people communicate on court, and their first impression is that there's a disadvantage to not communicating with verbal cues. I'm a pretty unlikely beach volleyball player. Growing up in urban Kansas (yes, there is such a thing), meant that beach volleyball was not in my vocabulary -- or anyone else’s for that matter. / xoJane
