Training Center Proposed For Blind In Rock Springs

ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — A former businesswoman wants to build a training and rehabilitation center for the blind and visually impaired in Rock Springs.

Robin Lonnevik says the center would be modeled on one in Boise, Idaho but would be smaller because of Wyoming’s smaller population.

Lonnevik, who is legally blind, spoke to the Green River Lions Club about the proposal last week. The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner (http://bit.ly/yHWiL4 ) reported Tuesday that she’s been investigating what grants are available to help pay for the project.

Lions Club president Harry Holler said he thinks state funding would be needed to build the center. He said it’s too late to ask the state Legislature for money this year but backers are hoping they can get some next year.
