ISSUE: THURSDAY, 31 JULY 2014

Lieutenant Zebulon Montgomery Pike explored the southwest portion of the Louisiana Territory in 1806 and though he never climbed the peak that bears his name, he did publish a report that attracted a lot of interest to the area.

Hosting a Foreign Exchange Student

I work for a foreign exchange company and am looking for a host family for a 16 year old deaf boy from the Philippines. He signs. He competed for and won a very prestigious, merit based, State Dept. scholarship. I plan to enroll him in the School for the Deaf and Blind, but he will need a host family who can use American Sign and lives in the Pueblo-Colorado Springs area. The family must be able to provide a bed and 3 meals per day. He can share a room with another boy within 4 years his age.

Roommate Needed

Hi there!

I am looking for an individual (male or female) who is deaf or hard of hearing, and is fluent in ASL in the Boulder/surrounding area.

I am a student at the University of Colorado, who has taken three terms of ASL, and would like to continue using it/become more fluent.

If you have any interest in letting me buy you coffee or lunch once at week, at a regular time we set up, please contact me! :)
