Scotty Weaver has learned at lot in the last three years working at the Two Roads Cafe in Danville. In the beginning, he learned how to wash dishes quickly and put them away in the right places. Then he mastered making sandwiches and other deli items and the special sauce for the Hot Browns. Now, he's working his way through the cakes and pastries, becoming a baker as well as a "deli specialist" and a dishwasher. But if Weaver has done a lot of learning at Two Roads, he's done his share of teaching, too, say Two Roads owners Kathy Crown-Weber and Jerry Houck.

Dear Editor, A lot of people like Mr. William Weyman and are happy to see him because they know he will talk straight to them. People come up to him, shake his hand, hug him, and tell him they will follow him on who he will vote for in the coming election. They ask him who he will vote for and he says Coomer, Peckler, Scutchfield and Long. Some even call him "Superman" because of all the support and help he has given to Mr. Coomer. People are wanting to learn sign language now which is a good thing.

Though the 13 members of the Kentucky School for the Deaf Class of 2012 originally hail from different parts of the state, their close bond was evident during Friday's graduation ceremony. Spirits were high as students, teachers, family members and friends celebrated the end of what was sometimes a challenging journey. Interpreters for the deaf and narrators for the hearing helped bridge the gap between spoken and sign language. Michael Miller of Stanford was one of three students who gave a speech with sign language and had a narrator interpret on his behalf.

Ryan Thomason pulled up to the tennis courts, music blaring from a Land Rover absolutely coated in mud from a good time in the soggy weather. The Boyle County senior climbed out of the vehicle with a smile on his face and a tennis racket in his hand. Despite being legally deaf, not much slows Thomason down. He has waited patiently for his turn to get on the court for Boyle, and not even a shoulder injury is going to keep him from playing now. Thomason teams with junior Ryan Dickinson to play doubles for the Rebels.
