Former Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman will plead not guilty to vehicular assault and felony hit-and-run charges after being formally charged on Friday.

MAN WHO THREATENED TO BOMB STATUE OF LIBERTY GETS THREE WEEKS IN JAIL
A West Virginia man who threatened to blow up the Statue of Liberty has made a deal with the feds to serve as little as three weeks in jail. Jason Paul Smith, 42, pleaded guilty in Manhattan on Monday to a hoax call to 911 that led to the evacuation of more than 3,200 people from Liberty Island in April 2015. In the call, Smith identified himself as “Abdul Yasin,” an “ISI terrorist,” and claimed that he and his cronies were preparing to blow up the tourist attraction. Smith, who is hearing-impaired, told Judge Vernon Broderick through an interpreter that he is currently being treated for a mental illness. / New York Post
WOMAN KILLED BY TRAIN MONDAY WAS DEAF

Florence Danios, 73, has sued HomeTowne on Bellfort and pest control company Envirotrol, claiming that they had harassed her and explicitly ignored her simple requests to be left alone. “I was feeling helpless and hopeless," Danios said in an email, "because HomeTowne did nothing to protect or prevent their pest control contractor from coming to my apartment without prior notice." The attorney for the defendants said they would not be commenting because of pending litigation; the trial is set for July. / Houston Press

HOW DEAF KIDS LEARN IN MISSISSIPPI
The Mississippi School for the Deaf is the only school in the state that exists primarily to serve deaf children. To do it well isn't cheap. The school has both commuter and residential students, and though boarding there is not a requirement, 80 percent of students, some as young as four, may use the dorm services at some point during the school year, so the school must operate 24 hours, six days a week. Yet, like schools across the rest of the state, MSD is facing budget cuts this year. / Jackson Free Press

A recent thread on Reddit featured a 20-year-old deaf woman who said she really wanted to have sex, but she was scared to. She said she worried about how she would sound to the people she had sex with, especially since she'd read a lot of comments online that mocked deaf people having sex.

DEAF DOGS ROCK RECOGNIZED NATIONALLY
Taking in any rescue dog is a big commitment, but a dog that is deaf comes with its own unique and sometimes difficult challenges. That’s the choice that Chris and Christina Lee made six years ago when they adopted Nitro from the Salem Animal Shelter. “We started searching and there really wasn’t much information," says Chris. That’s when the couple created Deaf Dogs Rock, an online resource. Deaf Dogs Rock is a finalist for several awards at the Blog Paws conference in Phoenix. / WSLS

NO MORE DEAF DOLPHINS -- THE BIG PLAN TO QUIET NOISY OCEANS
A roadmap to less noisy oceans is on the way! NOAA (The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) recently released a plan to reduce noise pollution in oceans over the next ten years. Human life is increasingly becoming louder. Jackhammering into concrete as infrastructure expands, and endless other noises (often having a chicken v. egg effect on poverty), bombard daily life for millions. As this noise grows, aquatic life suffers. / Global Citizen

SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETERS PURSUE PAY HIKE
Eugene School District interpreters who assist deaf and hard-of-hearing students want better pay, and they’re taking every step possible in an attempt to get it, including voicing their concerns to the Eugene School Board. Sign language interpreters in the district earn between $18 and $22.58 per hour, according to district spokeswoman Kerry Delf.

'SPRING AWAKENING' KICKSTARTER: DEAF WEST MAKES APPEAL FOR TONY AWARDS
If viewers of this year’s Tony Awards get to see a performance from “Spring Awakening,” they’ll have fans to thank for footing the bill. Deaf West Theater’s nominated revival has turned to crowdfunding to raise $200,000 to pay for the costs of staging a song on Broadway’s biggest night. But the efforts have raised some eyebrows. Is Deaf West — a scrappy, L.A.-based not-for-profit that integrates deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals into all aspects of its theater productions — trying to buy their way onto the telecast? / Variety

DEAF SPRINTER'S CAREER, FROM AFRICA TO FARIBAULT TRACK
It’s a simple fact of track and field — the sport revolves around the sound of the starting gun. Which makes things awfully tough when you’re deaf. “I became deaf from illness when I was newborn,” said Junior Peters, a senior sprinter at Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf. Although he is deaf, Junior doesn’t lift his eyes to watch for the smoke leaving the barrel, like most deaf runners do. His ears pick up just enough of a pop to register the sound. “I can hear a little bit,” he said. / WCCO
