BABYSITTER WHO LET BABY DROWN IN TUB GETS 15 YEARS IN PRISON
A judge sentenced a 20-year-old deaf babysitter to 15 years in prison for spending time on Facebook while, in the other room, a 9-month-old baby drowned in the bathtub. Mariah Berry pleaded no contest to aggravated manslaughter in March. Assistant State Attorney Sara Shumway asked that Berry be sent to prison for 14 years, the lowest punishment recommended by state sentencing guidelines. But Circuit Judge John Galluzzo opted for 15 years, calling what happened a tragedy and saying that he had little recourse but to punish her for the baby's death. / Orlando Sentinel

GREENSBORO'S BELL PARTNERS TO PAY $190K IN FAIR HOUSING COMPLAINT
Greensboro-based Bell Partners is the first apartment management company to settle anti-discrimination complaints after a nationwide study showed that some large apartment companies treated deaf or partially deaf callers differently than hearing callers who were inquiring about rentals. The National Fair Housing Alliance investigated 117 companies that owned 715 apartment complexes and found reason to file nine complaints with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. / The News-Record

DEAF AND BLIND STUDENTS PROTEST NEW SCHOOL POLICY
Students at the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and Blind left class in protest on Monday to fight a new policy that requires on-campus caretakers to obtain degrees, and could ultimately push out school employees who have worked closely with the students for years. In March, the state Board of Education approved a plan that will require the school’s 35 “dorm parents” – caretakers who provide basic assistance for deaf and blind students who live on campus outside of instruction time – to get associate degrees in child development by 2018 in order to keep their jobs. / The Charleston Gazette

JUDGE: DEAF DRIVER'S RIGHTS NOT VIOLATED BY BOONTON POLICE
Boonton police did not violate a deaf motorist’s rights when they could not provide her with an ASL interpreter to explain the consequences of refusing to take a breath test for suspected drunken driving, a state Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday. Judge Mary Gibbons Whipple rejected Kelly Romano’s claims that Boonton police discriminated against her as a disabled person on May 26, 2012, when they failed to bring in an interpreter after arresting her for suspected DWI. / Daily Record

PARENTS OF DEAF BOY SUE GREENSBURG FOR NOT PROVIDING SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER FOR SOCCER LEAGUE
The parents of an 8-year-old boy who is deaf are suing Greensburg for failing to provide an interpreter for the child while he plays in the city soccer program. The suit was filed Thursday in federal court in Pittsburgh.

But the city contends it is under no obligation to provide an interpreter for a non-resident playing in a voluntary league. / Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

DEAF MAN CLAIMS HE LOST JOB DUE TO DISABILITY
A deaf man says he lost his job due to his disability and his repeated requests for phone equipment that would be compatible with his hearing aids. David Coltrane began working with Heartland Payment Systems on Oct. 15, 2012. He says he told his supervisor he would need a phone that had Bluetooth wireless capability that would work with his hearing aids.

DEAF VALEDICTORIAN DELIVERS INSPIRATIONAL SPEECH
“Who could ever have imagined someone like me would make it this far?” asked Evan Mercer last week during his high school graduation speech as class valedictorian. Mercer offered classic advice to his fellow classmates to never give up -- except the words meant much more coming from him. That's because Mercer is deaf, and he told the story of the serious setbacks he faced to graduate first in his class at Harrison High School in Kennesaw, Georgia. / Yahoo! News

A Queensland judge has ruled that a deaf woman cannot serve on a jury because of her disability.

GOVERNMENT BOWS TO PRESSURE FROM DEAF LOBBY OVER ACCESS TO WORK
The minister for disabled people appears to have bowed to pressure from Deaf campaigners over new rules that made it harder for them to secure the support they needed to communicate in the workplace.

FAMILY SHARES STORY OF TRANSGENDERED DEAF CHILD
A family recently shared their story of their deaf daughter who told them she was boy. The Whittington family posted a video on YouTube about their first child, Ryland.

They decided to get Ryland cochlear implants, which helped Ryland eventually learn to hear and speak. "As soon as Ryland could speak, she would scream, 'I am a boy!'" according to the video. / Live5News.com

IN 'FARGO,' A DEAF ACTOR GETS HIS CHANCE TO BE WICKED
The second episode of Fargo, a TV show inspired by the 1996 Coen brothers film, opens ominously. A drum kit crashes as a beat-up old sedan speeds through snowy, rural Minnesota.

AN AFFECTING PRODUCTION OF NINA RAINE'S 'TRIBES' AT EVERYMAN THEATRE
What we have in "Tribes," the agitated and absorbing play by Nina Raine receiving its Baltimore premiere at Everyman Theatre, isn't a failure to communicate. It's a stubborn, even proud, refusal to communicate. While four members of a well-educated London family speak over and through one another, wounding and goading as they go, the fifth does what he can to keep up, to fit in, or just stay out of the way. He's Billy, the youngest child, born deaf into a hearing family — not a listening family, mind you, just a hearing one. / The Baltimore Sun

LETTER: LIVE THEATERS COULD DO MORE FOR HEARING IMPAIRED
The Tribune had an article May 28 concerning the installation of TeleCoil in the Tower Theater. The Broadway has also added a hearing assist which can be worn by those with hearing aids. Century 16 movie theater has had individual closed-captioning devices available at the box office for some time. These steps show an awareness and a concern for an almost unnoticed disability. But unfortunately there are no live theater venues that I am aware of which offer anything more that a clumsy and inefficient hearing assist. / The Salt Lake Tribune
