Did you hear? May is Better Hearing and Speech Month. I didn't know that either until Kassie DePaiva (Blair, OLTL) mentioned that she and hubby James (ex-Max) were embarking on a whirlwind tour of hearing-related events this month, including a photo exhibit last night to benefit the Clarke School-New York. As many fans know, their son, J.Q., has a cochlear implant, so he made the cutest speech about the services the Clarke School has provided him and other hearing-impaired children. The event was well-attended by friends and colleagues of the DePaivas, as well as fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Michael Easton (John), who rarely showcases his photography. I personally enjoyed Easton's piece, Los Angeles 1999, which was for sale in addition to three others. You can view some of his other works at www.michaeleaston.com, and be sure to check in with Kassie's Web site, www.kassiedepaiva.com, to learn more about Kassie's involvement with the Clark School and the League for the Hard of Hearing.
