Dick Baldwin City orrespon ent BY ANDY LUCERO It was Good Friday when I ran into Ron at Russell's Cafe. He was very cheerful. His folks were com- ing to see himoverthe weekend. His glrl- friend was going to fix dinner for them and there was going lobe a short family reunion with a lot of conversa- tion. His folks would not be able to stay for Eas- ter Sunday because they had other com- mitments. His girl was going to fix him dinner. No big thing like ham, roast beef ANDY LUCERO or turkey. Probably Just chicken, short rations pegged to a tight budget. Ron will be 27 years old this year. His span pf llfe up to this point has been nothing but a total of little frustrations that seem to get %igger with age. He is handicapped. ....... A long time -- 27 years on the home plate trying for a hit. A walk with luck would not take him to first base. His llmp right leg would bob- ble him on the stretch. A bunt is out. Maybe a base hit, but hope is his only plnchhitter. The vision in his right eye is ebbing and his right arm was never one of the dependables. But Ron is still there swinging at the curve balls of daily struggle. He survives on a paltry dis- ability grant and works atthis center for 40 cents an hour. A bill to help retrain handicapped people like Ron was vetoed by you know who. Not that Ron is much concerned about this. ARer all, if you are born with two strikes against you the spit balls that comelater areonly acts of mercy. On this Good Friday, Ron was cheerful. One happy day in the life of the handicapped we hope will not unbalance the federal budget. Amen.
