FOX 61 is reporting that a Bristol nun finally received life-changing hearing aids after years of struggling, .

Sister Elizabeth Reyes just received new hearing aids after her friends recommended she get her ears checked out and can hear clearly for the first time in years.

WFSB says Sister Elizabeth is a Montessori School/St. Joseph School teacher in Bristol.

She received the gift of hearing on Friday from the Beltone Hearing Care Foundation.

The Beltone Hearing Care Foundation donates hearing instruments to those in need of hearing help who may otherwise be unable to access it. Both individuals and organizations are eligible to receive assistance from the Foundation through direct nominations by Beltone staff or network members.

“Beltone has always had the mission of helping the world hear better through our products and professional hearing care services,” said Beltone President Corrine Perritano. “This Foundation gives our members a new path to achieve this mission by helping deserving individuals enrich their quality of life.”

FOX 61 says for Sister Elizabeth, every word is crucial because she spends most of her time teaching children, from 3 to 5 years old.

“I’m looking forward to the school day, when I can see them and hear them.”

Belton in Bristol is located in Bristol Commons, 123 Farmington Avenue.

Fergie’s rendition of National Anthem at NBA All-Stars game leaves many confused

LOS ANGELES — Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie sung the National Anthem yesterday at the NBA All-Stars game, and her rendition left many confused. She opted for a more “bluesy” version of the song, and a good portion of people watching weren’t buying it.  Although Fergie was on pitch,  her tempo, musical accompaniment and “sexy” delivery was seen as the wrong choice for the song and the venue. I’ve seen the national anthem performed hundreds of times but never in […]

Black ice possible Monday morning; Warmer temps later this week

Get ready for a BIG warm-up that will end up challenging and possibly shattering Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s record high temperatures. There will be a couple of chances of rain, but nothing significant that would cause any flooding.   After the mid-week warm-up, a cold front will crash through and drop us back to the 50’s on Thursday and 40’s on Friday, still well above average for this time of year. Next significant storm may bother us by the weekend with periods […]
