GIRLFRIEND: ARMY VET HAD NO CHANCE TO DROP KNIFE BEFORE SHOOTING
The girlfriend of an Army veteran fatally shot by white police officers responding to a domestic dispute in Kentucky said Tuesday that the officers gave the man no time to respond to their commands to drop his knife before opening fire. Darnell T. Wicker, 57, was killed at a suburban Louisville apartment complex early Monday. Wicker's longtime girlfriend, Anita Louise Jones, 53, said Wicker, deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other, had never been violent, just "hard-headed," and didn't think he meant her any harm. / Stars and Stripes
WOMAN FIRED FROM PRETZEL SHOP BECAUSE SHE IS DEAF
The new owner of a pretzel store is accused of discriminating against an employee who is deaf. Keri Watkins can’t hear, but her co-workers said she can do her job at Auntie Anne’s just fine. “She feels discriminated against,” said Kami Tucker, Watkins’ interpreter and the former store manager. Watkins has worked at the pretzel shop inside the Dickson Walmart for nearly two years. Employees said that job ended when a new owner bought the franchise and said Watkins couldn’t work there anymore because she is deaf. / WBRC FOX 6 News

A woman was hospitalized after driving her pick up truck into a ditch on Route 77 in Genesee County. Genesee County Sheriff’s deputies say the woman fell in and out of consciousness when they arrived and found her.

DEAF MISSISSIPPI COUPLE ATTACKED; SELF-DEFENSE CLASS SET

The gift will be used to develop a new agricultural center at the school.

It will be located on 20-plus acres behind the Helen Keller School. / The Gadsden Times
AGENCY MAKES SURE THE DEAF CAN 'HEAR'
Recently, a Delaware County-based organization, the Deaf-Hearing Communication Centre, staffed the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. That required a slew of screenings and background checks to clear each sign-language interpreter whose task was to translate the words of party leaders and presidential ilk to people around the world. For years, the DHCC has provided the much-needed service of finding the right interpreter for the right situation. / The Delaware County Daily Times
FIRE DAMAGES BUILDING THAT HOUSED FORMER CLARKE SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
Thomas R. Benoit stood outside his old dormitory Saturday morning with his arms outstretched. “It’s all gone,” he said, shaking his head. Benoit, 69, lived in Rogers Hall for four years when he was a student at the former Clarke School for the Deaf. Fifty years later, the 1966 graduate drove from his home in Chicopee on Saturday to confirm what he saw on television that morning: The picture-perfect building had been consumed by flames the night before. / The Recorder
SHAWNEE COUNTY REBUFFS ALLEGATIONS IN DEAF WOMAN'S LAWSUIT
Shawnee County and the sheriff’s office deny they violated the rights of a deaf woman who has alleged the county didn’t offer her services required under federal law during encounters with law enforcement. In a federal lawsuit filed earlier this summer, Carolyn Hans accuses the sheriff’s office of refusing to allow her to file a police report using an accessibility service, instead telling her she needed to hire an interpreter, the suit contends. The jail also didn’t provide an accessible phone she could use to contact an attorney or family, the suit alleges. / The Topeka Capital-Journal

GUAM OLYMPIAN RUNS FOR DEAF PARENTS
Josh Ilustre’s earliest memories of talking without words come from when he was about age 4. He’d walk into the kitchen, and sign to his mom, Normie, “I’m hungry.” When he started school, he remembers being placed in the Language Other Than English class, or LOTE — although that didn’t last long. He remembers the first time he realized he felt different from others — when his mom came to his parent-teacher conference, his classmates said, "Cool, your mom knows sign language!" / KHOU

ONTARIO WON'T CLOSE SCHOOLS FOR DEAF AND BLIND CHILDREN
Ontario will keep open four schools for 160 children who are deaf, blind or have severe learning disabilities while it develops pilot projects to help kids with similar challenges in traditional schools. The move follows protests by worried parents last winter and spring — and an outcry from opposition parties at Queen’s Park — after the government stopped admissions at the schools in Milton, London, Belleville and Ottawa for the fall. / Toronto Star

WHEN DEALING WITH THE POLICE, DEAF PEOPLE ARE AT A MAJOR DISADVANTAGE
Interacting with the police can be stressful, regardless of whether you are a witness, a victim or a culprit. Most of us have one very useful advantage, however: we can hear. Anyone who is deaf and has dealt with the police may have found communication a major problem. Too often, the forces in the UK and elsewhere in Europe struggle to provide sign language interpreters at short notice or even to understand the needs of deaf people. It hampers their access to justice and needs to be addressed urgently. / The Conversation UK

MUSICIAN WHO WAS DEAF AS A CHILD TO CONDUCT FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA
A talented young musician who overcame childhood deafness has achieved his dream of being the conductor of the resident orchestra at a top music festival. Robert Guy, 28, has spoken of his pride that NEW Sinfonia, which he established with his brother, Jonathan, 26, will have a central role at the North Wales International Music Festival. Remarkably, Robert was not able to hear a note when his grandmother started teaching him to play the piano at the age of three. Now fully able to hear, he is making his name as the conductor and co-founder of NEW Sinfonia. / Daily Post
DEAF PEOPLE SAY UKRAINE STILL NOT LISTENING TO THEM
Maryana Lyukhanova, 25, leads an active life. She is an actress in Rayduha (Rainbow), a Kyiv theater for the deaf. She also works as a sign language teacher and translator. In her leisure time, Lyukhanova snowboards and sings. However, because of her hearing impairment, Lyukhanova has to put in more effort into everyday activities. “Family support helps me to achieve my goals. And of course, good luck also matters,” she says. But Lyukhanova is the exception rather than the rule, as problems of the deaf still go largely ignored in Ukraine. / Kyiv Post
LOCAL GOVERNMENTS BRINGING DEAF, HEARING CLOSER
Municipalities across Japan are working to spur greater use of sign language by passing ordinances to make it an official language, a boon for the hearing-impaired. One such place is Akashi, Hyogo Prefecture, which passed a local government regulation over a year ago. I walked along the streets with a hearing-impaired person, wondering if perceptions had changed since then. / The Japan News

THE HEARING AID'S PURSUIT OF INVISIBILITY
I was 6 years old when I received my first pair of hearing aids. For many years, I felt self-conscious about the standard, behind-the-ear pair I wore. I was sure they made my ears stick out. My hair, tied in a long braid as per Sikh tradition, did little to hide them—or to limit snickers, glances, and finger-pointing from other children. “They help me hear,” I would reply to their never-ending questions. “So I can hear like you do.” The second answer was a lie. I knew no matter how hard I tried, I could never hear the way they did. My hearing was broken. / The Atlantic
10 MISCONCEPTIONS TEACHERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CHILDREN WHO ARE HARD OF HEARING
1-A child who responds to sound does not have a hearing loss. Hearing loss is a spectrum. The child may hear some but not all sounds. A child should have their hearing tested who has delayed speech, responds to sounds inconsistently, is inattentive, displays behavioral changes or responds incorrectly to simple basic questions. / The Huffington Post
ESCAPE GAME CUSTOMIZES PUZZLES FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED
It's a game of problem solving, each group that enters an Escape Game Knoxville room has exactly one hour to work together to get out. But one group is overcoming an another obstacle, they're deaf and the game masters made a game specifically for them. "We tried to figure out the answers. We think, but we don't think the same at the same time," said Kibbie Parsons. "They communicated really well," said Owner Dustin Wyrick, "It was unique for us because we've never had a group like that before." / WVLT

DEAF DANCE FESTIVAL FOUNDER: PERFORMING CHANGED MY LIFE
Rejected by his peers and feeling isolated and bereft, Antoine Hunter changed the course of his life with one audacious, desperate, emotionally naked dance. Born completely deaf in one ear and with little hearing in the other, he grew up in West Oakland without connections to other kids, either deaf or hearing, and feeling like an outcast. But as a student at Oakland's Skyline High School in the late 1990s, he experienced an epiphany that launched him on an innovative path as a choreographer. / Mercury News
