PRINCIPAL SADDENED BY MICHIGAN SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF FUNDRAISER SCAM
Principal Cecelia Winkler was dismayed after learning of a scam involving four people trying to falsely raise money in the name of the Michigan School for the Deaf. The school was informed of the scam after athletic director Micki Lewis was contacted by a community member that challenged someone attempting to raise money for a trip to Washington, D.C. using the name of the West Court Street school. / MLive.com
BLIND, DEAF SCHOOLS PREPARE FOR DEEP BUDGET CUTS
Leaders for the Mississippi schools for the blind and deaf say they remain committed in their missions to provide students with an empowering education as a budget cut expected to affect hiring practices at both institutions for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year looms. A spokeswoman with the Mississippi Department of Education said funding for MSD and MSB, a single line item in the agency’s budget, was reduced by $332,264 or 3 percent by the Legislature. The schools requested a budget increase of roughly $2,253,000. / The Clarion-Ledger
SHOULD A BILL BE PASSED TO ALLOW THE DEAF IN THE MILITARY? THIS TEACHER THINKS SO.
Keith Nolan, a teacher at the Maryland School for the Deaf, wants to be in the military but can't. Because he is deaf. Dave Alexander, who went through Reserve Officers’ Training Corps in college, flew Black Hawk helicopters in the military, taught ROTC, and went into the Reserves, went to graduate school for audiology and started working at the Maryland School for the Deaf in November. That's when he met Keith. Alexander is now trying to help Nolan persuade the Department of Defense (DOD) to create a pilot program to train 15 to 20 candidates with a range of hearing loss, to be Air Force officers. / ECNmag.com
WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF CEO RHOTEN TO RETIRE
Rhoten had rarely seen snow when he moved from Florida to Pittsburgh in January 1994 to take over as CEO for the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. During his walk to work on the first day, he was caught off guard by the volume of snow that fell. “I said, ‘I will cancel school on Friday,' ” recalled Rhoten, 66, of Churchill. “The staff was shocked, and then Friday came, and it was 45 degrees and sunny.” / Tribune-Review
RESIDENTS SKEPTICAL ABOUT DEVELOPMENT OF DEAF AND BLIND SCHOOL PROPERTY
A potential new direction for the site of a defunct state school for the deaf, blind and multidisabled off of Hampton's Shell Road was met with skepticism and frustration from many local residents at an informational meeting Tuesday evening. The city of Hampton bought the school property in 2010 from the state in the hopes of redeveloping the site. / Daily Press

DEAF GRADUATE HOPES FOR MILITARY CAREER
Cole Moore wants to serve his county, but his country will not let him. Moore, 19, graduated from Nash Central High School where he proudly served for four years in the Naval JROTC program, rising to the position of executive officer, the second in command. His ultimate goal in life for as long as he can remember has been to serve in the Marine Corps. However, Moore was born deaf. Though he received a cochlear implant when he was four years old and can hear well enough to function in most situations, the U.S. military will not allow him to join. / Rocky Mount Telegraph
STATE TURNS DEAF EAR TO HEARING NEEDS OF CHILDREN
This situation keeps getting worse. No civil rights battle was won overnight, but these kids can't wait. Huge health insurance rate increases proposed for next year are another bitter pill to swallow for those Washington state children with disabilities unserved by the Affordable Care Act. Hearing coverage was left out of the ACA. It is left to states to determine whether children deserve such coverage, and Washington is not among the 20 states that have passed such laws. / HeraldNet

ALMOST £10,000 RAISED FOR FAMILY OF DEAD MOTHER FOUND DEAF
Almost £10,000 has been raised for the family of a deaf mother found dead in the River Clyde after she vanished on a night out. Kirsty Aitchison, from Robroyston, had been missing for a week before emergency services recovered her body from the River Clyde on Saturday evening. The British Sign Language user had been on a night out with friends at Campus bar in Glasgow's city centre before becoming separated from the group. / STV News
THE DEAF EX-CORONATION STREET ACTRESS FIGHTING FOR CHANGE
I can’t find Ali Briggs. We’ve arranged to meet at the West Yorkshire Playhouse at lunchtime and normally it would be quiet enough for us to spot each other. Unfortunately a fire alarm has been triggered at Quarry House, the nearby Government building known as the ‘Kremlin’, which means there are more than 1,000 people pouring out of the building -- and several hundred are taking refuge in the Playhouse. Asking the front desk to put out a call for Ali would be pointless: the actor is deaf. / Yorkshire Post
DEAF CENTER TEMPORARILY SAVED AFTER SMASHING FUNDRAISING TARGET
Cornwall's only deaf centre looks to have earned a stay of execution after supporters helped to smash a fundraising target. The West Briton recently reported that Cornwall Deaf Centre was in danger of closing and a fundraising target had been set up to try and save it. The crowdfunding page, set up by Carleen Collins, one of the sign language interpreters for Cornwall who operates at the centre, managed to raise more than £2,500 comfortably surpassing its target of £1,000. / West Briton
WHAT IT'S LIKE TO .. BE DEAF
Sean Noone is a man with many strings to his bow. By day, he’s a Citizens Advice Bureau advisor and a mentor, while on evenings and weekends, he’s a wrestler, footballer and a bit of a party animal. He’s also profoundly Deaf, and has been since birth. We were interested to get an insight into his life, and – as a hearing team here at Weekend – find out more about what it’s like to be Deaf. / Express and Star

BOB RUMBALL WAS A FIERCE ADVOCATE FOR ONTARIO'S DEAF COMMUNITY
A big, plain-spoken, Harley-riding preacher who left professional football for more spiritual pastures, Rev. Bob Rumball found his greatest success, and satisfaction, ministering to Ontario’s deaf community. In 1956, the year he left the Toronto Argonauts, Mr. Rumball answered a call both practical and spiritual: He was asked to speak to the congregation at Toronto’s Evangelical Church of the Deaf. “No one looked at me,” he said in a video celebrating his 50 years of advocacy. “They all looked at the interpreter.” / The Globe and Mail
IRAQ'S OVERLOOKED DEAF, DUMB AND THE DISABLED
Every morning when Intisar Abdulhamid wakes up, there are people already waiting outside the door of her apartment in the northern Kurdish city of Erbil. Her home has become a haven for dozens of deaf and dumb people who have escaped the Daesh’s (the so-called IS) advance in Iraq. “We drink tea, we have discussions about the current situation and we try to support one another,” said 55-year-old Abdulhamid, who has spent 30 years helping deaf and dumb people. / Saudi Gazette
THIS ALL-GIRL BAND IS DEAF, BUT THAT'S NO REASON NOT TO PLAY
If you thought music was only for the gifted — take a Do-Re-Mi course from these ladies. They can’t hear, but that doesn’t stop them from leading their entire school in perfect rhythm anyway. Meet the all-girl marching band of Chennai’s Little Flower Convent Higher Secondary School For The Deaf who whip up a mean beat — be it for the sports day march past or the National Anthem any day of the week. / The New Indian Express
INNOVATIONS HELP DEAF CHILDREN BETTER PREPARE FOR FORMAL SCHOOLING
Almost 50 Deaf children in first grade received sign language-based education by both Deaf teachers and hearing teachers in the 2015/16 school year through a pilot scheme under the Intergenerational Deaf Education Outreach Project (IDEO). IDEO adopted the innovative model of family-support teams, including a Deaf mentor, a sign language interpreter and a hearing teacher, to teach sign language to Deaf children and their families in their own homes. / The World Bank
UGANDA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF GETS A MASSIVE FACE LIFT
When in 1959, the Church of Uganda leased a piece of land to the Uganda Society for the Deaf, a safe haven for the deaf children, the first of its kind, was opened to the public. From the receipt of their first student to the move to Ntinda, the school has had a fair share of ups and downs. A glance at this school’s four dormitories and 15 classrooms gives you the picture of a mixed environment of upgraded and dilapidated structures, an unlikely contrast in other schools in Ntinda. / New Vision
MINISTER DIRECTS POLICE ON DEFILED DEAF PUPIL
State minister for Higher Education John Chrysostom Muyingo has expressed concern that persons who are mandated to protect children's rights have instead become their tormentors. Mr Muyingo directed the police to swiftly investigate and arrest all accomplices in the defilement of a 16-year-old deaf student who is currently seven months pregnant. "All collaborators in this matter regardless of whether they are the parents or caretakers must be apprehended," Mr Muyingo instructed. / allAfrica.com

BRODY: MY FATHER'S CRUSADE TO CONNECT THE DEAF
IN 1967 my father went hunting by himself in the woods, slipped on a wet rock and fell, hurting his back and head. No one was around for miles. Barely able to move — and with no walkie-talkie or flares on hand to signal for help — he crawled for seven hours to reach his car. The traumatic episode gave him a revolutionary idea. By accident, literally, he had found his true calling. And he turned his private crisis into a public crusade. Lee Brody, born deaf, enjoyed tinkering with technology even as a boy back in the 1930s and 1940s. / NorthJersey.com
BRIDE SIGNS LYRICS TO FATHER-DAUGHTER DANCE SONG FOR DEAF DAD
The most emotional part of any wedding may be the father-daughter dance, but one bride's show of support was so poignant that it brought her proud dad to tears. Julie Finkel decided to sign the lyrics to the song she chose for the father-daughter dance so her dad, who was born deaf, would be able to hear it too. Signing has always been a part of Ohio native Julie Finkel's life. / Inside Edition
DEAF FATHER LOVINGLY TEACHERS DEAFBLIND CHILD
Justin Vollmar cuddled his 11-month-old daughter, Clarisa, and tapped her gently on the forehead to tell her Daddy was holding her. Justin of Janesville is an experienced dad. He and his wife, Rachel, have three other children: 11-year-old Emma, 10-year-old Lawson and 8-year-old Julia. But Justin never anticipated the new way of looking at life that came with Clarisa's birth. The baby cannot see or hear. / Janesville Gazette

NIACC OFFERS ASL CLUB
A new club in Mason City is helping to bridge the gap between the deaf and the hearing. North Iowa Area Community College officials recently approved the American Sign Language (ASL) Club. NIACC began offering ASL classes in the fall of 2015. Instructor Linda Albers said when she moved to Mason City two years ago, she approached officials at NIACC about starting ASL classes because there's a need for interpreters for the deaf. / Globe Gazette

DEAF CLEANING CREW SHINES DESPITE CHALLENGES
A storm of orange work shirts rolls through the hallway at Alliance Data, dotted with bright blue gloves amid wheeling gray trash cans and fresh cleaning supplies. This janitorial storm is led by John Parker, the night shift supervisor for IGI Advanced Cleaning Services. Parker leads his team to the cafeteria, where he signals for the commencement of a sanitation siege that will leave every surface sparkling. Anyone walking by would have no idea that four of the five members of Parker's crew are deaf, including their fearless leader himself. / Coeur d'Alene Press

There is a special bond between recent Annapolis High School graduate Marie Shepard, 17, and Harwood resident Lynn Wiley Fleming. For the past 10 years, during every school day, Fleming was by Shepard's side. Shepard is deaf, and Fleming was her interpreter. Though Shepard's time as an Anne Arundel County student has ended, the friendship they forged has endured. / Capital Gazette

For the second consecutive summer, a U.S. women's national team is out to win the World Cup.

Matthew Klotz broke his second Deaf World Record in as many days at the Tiger Aquatics Summer Classic. The LSU swimmer posted a 2:03.50 in this morning’s prelims of the 200 backstroke. The old record stood at 2:04.61, which he set at the 2014 Junior National Championships. Additionally, his time today is faster than the 2:03.79 Olympic Trials qualifying standard. Klotz will now be able to race both backstroke events at next week’s U.S. Olympic Trials. / Swimming World Magazine
WALKER SET FOR GLOBAL STAGE IN DEAF VOLLEYBALL
Shaun Walker had already tried twice and failed to make the USA Men’s National Deaf Volleyball team. But the 30-year-old from Lincoln felt like he still had one more tryout left in him. So Walker and his friend, Jake Smalley, drove through 13 states in nine days last June, seeing the sights and keeping their Olympic dreams alive. And when they left Los Angeles after the grueling tryouts, Walker and Smalley had earned what they came for — spots on the national team. Now Walker would love to take one more long trip to play volleyball. / Delaware State News
DEAF RACE CAR DRIVER OVERCOMES OBSTACLES, INSPIRES THE MIDSTATE
Cars zooming around the track, flaggers directing drivers, but all Chris Kennedy hears is silence as he makes his way around Susquehanna Speedway. “Yes, I was born deaf. I learned to sign and read lips at a young age,” Kennedy said through a sign language interpreter. Chris, of Manchester, York County, has been racing kart and sprint cars for 12 years. He’s won dozens of titles. You wouldn’t notice it while he’s racing, but he’s had to overcome incredible obstacles to achieve his success. / abc27
