Top stories about the deaf:

Yanetani Atsuko, a deaf woman, elected to the Akashi-shi Assembly

in Japan, has given her first speech. She was greeted warmly.

Interpreters followed her around.

Kentucky School for the Deaf is losing something that it had

for 28 years – a helipad. For years helicopters have taken

off to pick up patients for the Ephraim McDowell Regional

Medical Center. This helipad is being built on the hospital

premises. The move will not impact on the area medical needs.

FCC voted to have cable carriers make emergency messages

accessible to the deaf-blind.

Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind will make

an announcement in June who their next superintendent

will be.

If funding is not restored by the Minnesota legislators,

then personnel at Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf

may be laid off in July.

A deaf person has a strange hobby. It is lawsuits.

This person loves to file lawsuits. He would file

lawsuits against his ex-best friends! Why? He feels that

if people do wrong with him, then the lawsuit is the

best way to make things even.

At one time he was involved in six separate lawsuits;

paying attorneys for each of these lawsuits.

Did these lawsuits make him a rich man? No!

Nobel Price winners that were deaf






Years ago many deaf union printers worked for the Washington

Post newspaper. They were skilled printers that did a great

Job with the newspaper every day.

Times changed ~V during the late seventies; the newspaper

bought out some deaf printers. But there was still a group

of deaf printers at the Post that did not want to retire.

Technology made their jobs unnecessary but they could not

laid off as the union protected them. This went on for a

long time until the Post finally bought out all of them.

These lucky deaf men getting pay for doing nothing?

Well, they were very bored, just gossiping and playing

cards all day every day.
