The Vermont Agency of Education has tapped a Montpelier nonprofit group to oversee outreach services for Vermont children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Those services faced an uncertain future when the Brattleboro-based Vermont Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing closed abruptly earlier this month.

ADVOCATES DEMAND QUALIFIED INTERPRETING FOR DEAF INMATES

IN PA. AND N.J., SOME CANDIDATES DON'T HAVE ALL THE VOTERS' EARS
In the Philadelphia area, most candidates and campaign committees trying to woo voters with TV ads this election season are going out of their way to reach out to those with hearing difficulties, but there are some notable exceptions. Republican Gov. Tom Corbett’s campaign for re-election is most prominent of the political committees advertising on Philadelphia-area TV this fall without closed-captioning, or written transcripts of a broadcast's spoken words that can be activated on most TVs. / philly.com

For a month now, Adam George-Ouellet has travelled from jail cell to courtroom to jail cell to courtroom, never once hearing — let alone understanding — the many things that police and lawyers and other officials say to him and about him. On Monday, an Ottawa judge was vocal in expressing anger over the “outrageous” failure of court staff to find sign-language interpreters for the 28-year-old deaf and mentally disabled man. “This is the biggest comedy of errors I have seen in the last five years,” Justice Robert Fournier declared. / Ottawa Citizen

DEAF WOMAN 'BUTCHERED' IN HOSPITAL
When Salome Skosana went under the knife to remove haemorrhoids four years ago little did she know that she’d be left with four years of debilitating pain and discomfort. Two years would be spent carrying a stoma bag, and two more with a growing hernia. The huge lump on the left side of her stomach is extremely painful, and it has stopped her from carrying out any domestic chores or economic activity. “What a price to pay for having piles,” she told Pretoria News. / IOL.co.za

LIVING WITH A DEAF MOTHER
Everything about my mom represents home to me. She is normalcy in every sense of the word. She is also deaf. I am glad to tell my mother’s story in honor of Deaf Awareness Week, but not simply because I want people to be more aware that there are deaf people in this world. Instead, I want people to understand what deaf is - and what it is not. / Central Michigan Life

INTERVENERS 'BRINGING THE WORLD' TO DEAF-BLIND STUDENTS
Lauri Wendel watched her 6-year-old student claw up the rock wall at Liberty Lakes Camp in Bordentown, as other campers called out instructions he could not hear. Over and over, the boy managed to get partway up before losing his grip — only to attack the wall again. Born deaf and now nearly blind, Henry Norton was guided only by touch. The next day, he accomplished his goal. "He was exhausted," marveled Wendel, who is specially trained to assist the deaf-blind. "He just would not give up." / Courier-Post

PILOT PROGRAM OFFERS THEOLOGICAL TRAINING FOR DEAF COMMUNITIES
For Nick Jungheim, being Deaf and holding a Master of Divinity degree was not enough to effectively minister to Deaf communities.
For eight years, Jungheim struggled to teach the Bible in two Deaf ministries in Duncan and Lawton, Okla., but “nothing worked.” Jungheim and five others graduated in August from a pilot program for a Certificate in Theological Education for the Deaf, a program Jungheim believes will allow him to minister to the Deaf in their heart language. / Cardinal & Cream

DEAF VA. ARTIST CECE BELL HOPES HER TALE WILL HELP OTHERS
It is a story Cece Bell knew she wanted to tell, and believed it was something she should share. But it took decades of discovery and experience, and then artistic growth and parenthood, to get to a place where she was ready to put it to paper. At age 4, Bell suffered a brief bout with meningitis that left her “severely to profoundly deaf.” As her life, too, began to change profoundly, she created an alter-ego – El Deafo! – who, amid a child’s sense of vulnerability and uncertainty, was determined to feel empowered by her being “different.” / The Washington Post

AN EMOTIONALLY CHARGED 'SPRING AWAKENING' BY DEAFWEST THEATRE
For anyone who didn’t quite connect with the 2008 Ahmanson Theatre production of "Spring Awakening" on an emotional level, the current production by Deaf West Theatre will redress that deficit brilliantly. If rippling goosebumps are any indication of emotional involvement, this show delivers. The Tony Award-winning musical in 2007, "Spring Awakening" is the adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 play about sexually curious adolescents pitted against the repressive German status quo, capturing the head-banging frustration of its disaffected young characters in dashing style. / Los Angeles Times
