remembering a land speed racer

from a posting

Looking back at Kitty O’Neil’s Record

It was on this day (Dec. 6) in 1976 that professional stuntwoman Kitty
O’Neil set a record for land speed by a female driver. It was in Oregon’s
Alvord Desert that Kitty hit 512 miles per hour.

Childhood diseases left her deaf.

She became a champion diver at a young age.

She set a record for the highest stunt fall by a woman (105 feet).  She
has held as many as 22-speed records on land and water.

A movie was made about her life in 1979 titled Silent Victory: The Kitty
O’Neil Story.  She died Nov. 2, 2018, from pneumonia at the age of 72.

note:
Did she know or use ASL?  No. It was her personal preference not
to use ASL.

She was part of 1965 USA Deaflympics team as a diver, but unfortunately
this event was cancelled due to lack of entrants. Needless to say
she was very upset about it.

random deafsports talk

Is it possible that some schools refuse to send their sports
scores to DeafDigest Sports (as well as with their local
newspapers) is because of FERPA regulations?

FERPA? It is spelled in full as:
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

One past athletic director discussed with DeafDigest Sports
his fear of FERPA.

And only yesterday, a fan said he was not able to get full
basketball scores for DeafDigest Sports because of these
same FERPA reasons!

Is there a difference between Hearing FERPA and Deaf FERPA?

DeafDigest Sports thinks not!
