Better Speech and
1, 2000] One
in 10 American families is directly affected by speech and hearing
disorders. Anyone at any age may acquire these difficulties as a
result of injury or illness. Other causes are congenital in nature
or related to aging. Communication disorders cannot always be
eliminated, but professional assistance and technological
developments can improve the quality of life for individuals
affected. To increase awareness of help available, the American
Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has designated May as
Better Speech and Hearing Month.

of the most interesting developments in the book publishing industry

[MAY 1, 2000] All the other reviews that I read about the third movie in
Costner’s baseball trilogy tell a story of woe, claiming that this
movie is flawed. They
apparently quote Costner, saying that the movie was ruined in the
editing room. They point to the flat, detracting role Kelly Preston played
as Jane Aubrey, Billy Chapel’s girlfriend.
They rant about the distracting subplot, where Jane’s

editing room floor. But for my contribution to the critical fray, I want to
report that I thought it was a magical movie.
